Washington, D C, June 26 1905.
Teddy the first and Kaiser Bill the
second, are about the only two iiess
in the pod at the present writing
from the .Nation's Capital. Teddy
has gut the two warring iiutions to
gether, and got them to ugrse to
accept Washington as the place of
meeting tor the peioe conference,
and his work iu this direction hn
ainaaed all the diplomats of the old
world. Why, it was plumb easy.
All he had tode was to sound the
two scrappeis and get then to assent
to a note fnan bun askmg them if
they did nol think that it was time
to go "from labor to refreshments,"
and then send them mich a note
asking them to be good little boys in
the interest of peace and humanity.
They were both dead willing to quit.
Snd only widted for some man to use
a good, old fashioned brand of
Americanism and straightforward
ness without all the circumlocution
of diplomacy. Teddy did thia and
be won out. Un the other hand the
Kaiser is raising all sorts of Cain
over iu Europe, and the first thing
he knows he will have strained the
patience of the French nation to the
breaking poiut and a world war. will

now are in the limelight and nue of

before the pang ot mock revolution

The Interstate Commerce Com
mission stilt seems to be determined
to have the Congress place the private
or refrigerator car lines under their
jurisdiction as commen carriers, on
account of the cry of the commission
merchants that the charges of these
oar companies are excessive. Ik-fore
Congress acts the people should call
to the attention of their member of
the Congress the significant testi
mony of a fruit grower and farmer
out in Michigan who came here and
testified before the benate Committee
on Interstate Commerce. His uume
is F S Furney, of Hart Ooeana
County, Michigan, and he testified
that he had 70 acres in peaches,
plums and pears, and had been in
the business for thirty years, and he
said that in his opinion the fruit
growers ohould be the oues that would
say whether these rates by the
Armour ur lines are exorbitant or
not Said be: "If a coal min.i
should come to you and say, 'Here
the Armour car lines are charging
an exorbitant price,' or an iron
miner should come and say that, you
would begin to figure around to see
why he was here. Now I want to
say to you that this league ot com
nusstou merchants never paid one
dollar of this excessive freight that
they oompuua (.bout The fruit
grower and the consumer paid,
mostly the fruit grower, and if there
is any complaiut 1 claim that the
fruit grower should make it instead
of these commission merchants."
When he was asked by Senator
Kean, of New Jersey, if he thought
the car people something in the na
ture of philanthropists, he said: "I
think this, that there is some reason
wbv the commission merchants are
here. The whole thing in a nut.

In the first place they look the count
ry ever to see how many peachea
there are, and they determine about
how many cars, three or four or five
hundred oars, or whatever there are,
of peaches and plums they will need.
Then the next move the) make is to
go to the oar lines to see how they
can get these peaches away. The
Armour car line people say to .them
that they have all the cars they want
aad it they do not drop thee peaches
into market in perfect order they
will nar for it Then thev know
what they can do and they come to
ate and say tney will give me to mifch

is the point in the whole inulter of
contention. When the growir sells
hiB fruit direct to the buyer iu the
field the commission man dues not
get to bundle it. Hence the howl
The remainder of MrOurney's te.itil
niony covers this ground fully and

This is the liut time since I have

hut we idiall doubtless continue to
enjoy the spectacle of a Chief Magis
trate iudouiitubly set upoii curbing
the railroads whenever nobodv
objects. The true inwardness of this
whole contention tor railroad rate
regulation is that it is a scheme of
the 'stand pat" Republicans and
they are using the Democrats of the
House to pull their chestnuts out ot
the fire. They are fixing things to
impose further direct taxation ou the
people by the next Congress as a
means of not only supplying the
deficit in the government reveiiuos,
but of continuing to the trusts their
enormous profits through absurdly
high protective taritts. That is the
purpose of the "stand-put" schemers.
The tariff-fattened millionaires have
killed of the income tax effoctuully.
They are now trying to stave of tariff
revision by howling for railway rate
regulation. Their agents are aotive
at all points where railway discrim
inations, rcut or imagined, are talked
of. They are stirring up this agita
tion in order to save the protected
infaut industries their enormous
profits. They have pitched on the
common people and the railroads

Internal revenue taxes on coffee,
tea, beer and other necessaries is to

the governmental burden. Reduced
earnings by governmental control of
rates is to be the railroads contubu
tiou as a sop for the "common peo
ple," if their plan curries, while the
protected trusts make their gains
greater and greater. That is the
trust program tor the next session
of Congress as arranged in Wall
Street, "bouk the railroads and the
common herd" is their slogan. "ViK
have Rooclt all right," said one
of the chief beneficiaries of the tariff
the other day, after a secret meeting
in a ' Wall Street office. "Teddy5,

is the cat 8 paw that 8 pulling our
chestnuts out of the fire. As long
as we can keep him going oh that
tack wo ueedu t worry about any

problem and there won t be any time
to fool with the tariff. Then our
men will pull for au internal revenue

will help us along in it" When it
was suggested to him that the rail
road men would not stand for their
program, he said: "What can tbey
do? Our meu ar stirring up things
so as to get every body against them.
We are creating adverse opinion
wherever we tun, and rely on th

This is authentic and comes as
straight as an arrow from the inner
circles of the "stand pat Keimbli
