Owing to the fact that Rapp filed a
cross bill charging his wife with a statu

sweltering court room eager for testi

They were disappointed.
Bryan Humphries, who was the con

winter, and Miss Helen Sattler, her trav

Humphries testified, he had glimpses of
Georgo Baldwin of Appleton, Wis., off

Baldwin for two years and that she taw
him last around Christmas, 1913. She said
also that a policeman with a fine voice
visited the madame at her home In Cald
well, N. J., for slngtng lessons.
"He had a wonderful voice, but all tho

There was a bit of comedy between the

Man Who Invaded
Only Plain Drunk
LONDON, Junfc . Harry Pike, who
yesterday startled the authorities by In
vading Buckingham palace, Is not a suf
fragette agent, according to the attorney
for the prosecution at Bow Street police
The man who clambered over a ten
foot spiked wall and eluded sentinels, po-
! lice guards and servants, did so whll'j
'under the Influence of drink and without
any ulterior object, says the lawyer.
After overcoming all the obstacles Pike
strolled about for a long time In the in
terior of the palace, which he explored
from basement to sixth floor. It was
only when he entered an occupied room
that he was arrested.
He had changed his clothing for a suit
belonging l(- a servant, as he had' torn
and soiled h!s own clothes In climbing
the wall and crawling across the grounds.

WASHINGTON, Juno 8.-Tho supremo
court today upheld the Interstate Com
merce commission's orders in tho Shrevo
port rate case, thus placing the Interstati
railroads more under the commission and
less under state commissions,
Justice Hughes announced the court's
decision. He spoke of the unrestricted
power of the Interstate Commerce com
mission over Interstate commerce, Baying
the commission was expressly created to
prevent conflicting state legislation.
Justice Hughes pointed out that con
gress and not the states had tho powor
to prevent the Instruments of interstate
commerce from being used so as to In
jure interstate commerce. t
The far-reaching effect 'of the declslou
lies In the fact that rates which the In
terstate Commerce commission ordered
Indirectly Increased to ' remove discrim
ination, were prescribed by tho Texas
state railroad commission. Under , the
federal commission's order the only way
the railroads may escape conflict, with
the Texas commission Is to reduce tin
Interstate rates from Bhreveport to Texan
cities, so as to put the Louisiana city "n
a competitive basis with Texas Jobbing
Justice Hughes expressly, lecognlzvd the
Importance of the case, so stating as. he
concluded his opinion.
"But it Is essential," he added, "that
Interstate commerce have one master
and not many."
