Washington, D, C. Jan. 17 -The pro
posed freight rata increase onjiixty
commodities, "such ai' iron, coal and
coaraerouL by railroads operating be
tween Chicago and the -Missouri river
were bitterly attacked by shippers, in a
final hearing before the Interstate
Commerce Commission yesterday. A
saving of more than $12,000,000 annual
ly for the shippers, or an equal amount
of profit for the railroads, hinges on the
decision of the commission, said the
The roads declared the rate advances
necessary, in order to carry forward
their progressive policy. "The increased
cost of material used by them, and' the
advance in the wages of their employes
they say, had placed them in danger of
operating their linea at an actuaj loss,
or with a profit so small as to be negli
gible, unless they are allowed to in
crease their rates. The commoditiee
on which they would raise the f night
tariffs wero chosen by the railroads, it
was claimed, because they yield a lar
ger profit to their shippers than any of
the others cariied on trunk line terri
The shippers denied that the cost of
railroad materials had advanced; They
declared that traffic profits had increased
ty leaps ana Dounas during tne past
five years, and that if the net returns
seemed smaller, the fact was due to un
warranted increases in capitalization.
To grant .the increases, the shippers de
clared in conclusion, would be practical

Legislation Not Good Queer
Political Line Up.
' Washington, Jan.' 18 With another
kink tied in the Houao, rules, and two
more days a month taken away from
general legislative business, the House
leaders admitted that they will have
hard work disposing of the routine
work before the end of the session on
March 4th. The possibility of an extra
session, immediately after the new
Democratic Congress comes in, looms
up very large.
Representative Tawney, chairman of
the House Appropriations, after sum
ming up the work yet to be done on the
regular appropriations bill, declared
that these measures would demand at
least twenty-eight or thirty more gen
eral legislative days. In the last two
weeks the House spent - two days in
fighting over the rules, and there are
now only eighteen days left on which
the appropriation bills can be consider
ed. Either a series of night sessions or
an extra session seems imperative.
In addition to the pressure of time
the House is involved in the queerest
line-up of parties that has marked this
checkered Congress. Insurgents joined
the Democrats in over-ruling Speaker
Cannon. But a week ago the Demo
crats refused to join the insurgents on
a similar proposition. The Democrats
seem to be in a position to control the
House, almost absolutely as they will'
after March the 4lh,
One result of the tangled situation
predicted by some leaders isHhat Pres
dent Taft will secure no tariff commis
sion legislation of consequence, and that
the administration legislative program
will be lost in the wild scramble to
clean up routine business. -

be advised by ths executive committee
radically to curtail the output of their

year, at which time it waa recommend
ed that the mills shut down for a cer
tain number of weeks in the autumn,
This recommendation waa generally
complied with, but it is said the situa

that still more drastic action is required
to decrease the production.

The Early Drum.
Proms are probably an eastern idea
Introduced by the crusaders Into Eu
rope. They are frequently mentioned
In accouuts of the first crusade. When
Edward HI. of England and hla
queen made triumphal entry into Ca
lais In 13-17 "tambours" were among
the Instruments whicn were piayea
In their honor. Another of these was
called a "nacalre" or kettledrum, tax-
en, together with its name, from the
Arabs. The poet Chaucer also men
tioned this Instrument in his descrip
tion of the tournament in "The
Knlght'a Tale." The king generally
kept a troop of these bandsmen or
minstrels In his employ, and we read
that Eii ward II. on one-occasion gave
a sum of 00 shillings to Roger, the
trmnnetar: Janlno. the nakerer, and
others for their performances. An
other minstrel was called the 'fcbe-
veretter," or player on the bagpipe.
The Plague and the Tan flts.
Bormondscy's association with 'the

partly to Its flue oak woods and partly

however, It enjoyed a certain fame as

of the Agricultural and the Supreme
Court building, which are to be torn

The bills were introduced in the Sen

in the House by Hon. Ashley Home, of
Johnston county. Both made stirring
speeches in advocacy of the measure:
which provides a $1,000,000 bond issue.
