Arensed Eidshipmac to Go en Stand i
in His Own Defenja.
BTORY OF THE FIGHT RETuLD
Annapolis Md.. Nov. 28.?No great
progress was made yciUrdaj in the
trial by court martial of Midshipman
Manor Meriwether on charges that em
brace one of n?nslaughter in connec
tion with the death of Midshipman
James R. Branch, Jr.. after a fist fight
between him and Midshipman Meri
wether. Perhaps the most important
developments of the day were the de
cision of counsel to put Midshipman
Meriwether on the stand in his own |
defense, and the appearance of Dr. L.
W. Glazebrook, of Washington, in the
role of adviser to Meriwether's coun
sel. Most of the testimony offered was 5
by midshipmen, and related to details
of the fight aud the events that led
Midshipmen A. W. Fitch and Leigh
Noyes, respectively referee and time
keeper of the fight, were recalled and
again went over their testimony as to
certain, incidents in the fight. They
said that twice. It was thought, Branch
bad hit his head against the floor.
Lieutenant Commander Docker testi
fied that the floors in Bancroft Hall,
where the fight was held, have a con
crete base, then a layer of rough
boards and then the smooth surface
Midshipman Ralph Y eager, who was
Meriwether's second, said the latter |
had slipped in the 15th round, apraln
:ng his ankle, and that he vu almost
disabled thereby, but said he could con
tinue the fight, though ho oralld do lit
tle to defend himself.
Midshipman Hugo W. Caller, a fourth
clans man, testified that bo bad loaned
the civilian clothes that wore found
by Branch to Meriwether during the
summer, and that on the day they j
were found in the clooet Branch told |
him he had better go get thran. He had
then gone to the closet and serwered
The defense will close today, unless j
the medical testimony relating to the
autopsy consumes more ttme than la
now expected. Witnesses for the de- |
fense will include Medical Inspector |
Howard Eames and Lieutenant Coin- |
mander T. P. Magruder, aide to the
superintendent, the latter to testify to j
a matter of academy record.
The court will meet on Thursday J
(Thank riving Day) unless an unex- J
per ted order to the contrary is received
from the secretary of the navy. Wit
nesses may be called In rebuttal, but
the probability is that die court will
finish Its work by Friday.

had tried to meet the complaints against
present railroad conditions and at the
: jme time avoid conferring upon the
inter-state commerce commission, or
any similat body, the power over rail
The K .raker bill, however, provides
for enjoining the publishing and charg
ing of excessive rales and for enjoining
and discrimination forbidden by law,
whether between shippers, places, com
modities or otherwise, and wheher ef
fected by means of rates, rebates, clas
sifications, private cars, preferentials,
or in any other manner whatever"
While this does not confer upon the
court the power to fix a rate it does
authorize the court to say what is an
unlawful rate and how much is unlaw
ful and to enjoin he carrier from
charging more than is found to be law
ful. The bill also is designed to pro
hibit the giving of passes; to allow
free access to railroad documents and
to meet complaints as to rail rates on
export and import freight.
Provision is made so that the laws
to expedite cases in the courts will ap
ply to the new law. No carrier is al
lowed to grant a special rate or in any
manner collect from any person a
gTeater or less compensation than it
receives from any other person.
