the coming Congress ional fight he will tavel in all to gether a difterat style UNJUST AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL That the bill for the regulation of railroad rates drawn up by mem bers of the Interstate Commerce Commission and submitted to the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce as a substitute for the Foraker bill is unconstitutional in certain of its provisions is the opin ionofsome of the foremost lawyers of the country In an interview in the Washington Times Mr Robert Mather whom that paper describes as one of the greatest corporation lawyers of the country points out some of the unjust and unconstitutional features of this bill His statement follows As an expression of the commissions de sire for increased power the bill is adequate and ample As an at tempt to meet the desire of the President that one administrative body br given the power to prescribe the rates in disputed cases it also goes the limit It may be considered as a statement of the ex treme to which Congress will be asked to go on this subject- It is difficult to believe however that the bill is in any real sense the measure of the Administration For it is condemned as unconstitu tional by a published opinion of the AttorneyGeneral so that it cannot receive the professional and official approval of that officer And it seems to do violence to the Presidents expressed determina tion to secure a square deal for the railroads So it cant meet with the entire approval of Mr Roosevelt WHY ILLEGAL As to the unconstitutionality of the bill It clearly confers upon the com missionFirstThe concededly judicial function of determining whether a given rate is or is not reasonable audSecondThe confessedly legis lative Junction of establishing a rate in the place of the one con demned Of uch legislation Mr Moody has said The nature of legisla tive and judicial powers is such that th cannot be joined together consandsistently with the theory which un derlies the Constitution The situation that will be pre tented if the bill becomes law will be more obnoxious than that denounced in the opinion of the At torneyGeneral for the commission already possess and exercises many executive functions So that under the proposed bill there will be combined in one body for the first time the executive ju dicial and j legislative power Mr Moody cannot approve of thisjum ble of Governmental functions The case made by the bill is even worse than this For it not only vests in the commission pow- er5 perUining to all three depart ments of the Governmeni but seek to limit the courts in the exercise of their accustomed functions The courts are forbidden tostrain the enforcement of an order of the commission fixing a rate for a longer period than sixtv days from the date of service of the order upon the carrier unless it plainly appears that the order is unlawful Courts of equity possess and hate always exercised the inherent power to restrain the performance oran act or the enforcement ofa right upon good cause stioifn in non and the sumoieucy ot tie cause is addressed to the courts discretion This power tlie bill proposes to take away and to permit a restraining order only up on such showing as would justify a decree on final hearing This attempted destruction of the estate lished equitable powers of the court may turnish a second ground for holding the act if passed uncon stitutionalNO SQUARE DEAL The provision of the bill also gives ground for the claim than it denies a square deal to the carriers The basis of a legislative act by which the commission establishes a rate is the judicial proceeding by which lit determines that the rate complained of is unreasonable That judicial proceeding necessarily takes a wide range involving the effect of the proposed reduction not only upon the revenues of the car rier but also upon its other rates and upon the welfare of the indus rties and communities effected by the change A rate that seems on its face to take much money from this or that individual from this or that con modity or industry or irom this or that locality is often justified by circumstances that lie entirely out side the mere question of the amount of the charge Bv all these considerations the reasonableness the rate i judged And the commission in inquiring into the reas onableness of any contested rate eirICU1l1stances But a court confined in itsi authority to the suspension of the order of the commission only if it plainly appears that the order is un lawful but not otherwise as says the bill is shut out from a consid eJation of these collateral circum stances which in nine cases out of ten are the really controlling influ ences in the making of the rate The sole inquiry of the court must be What is the effect of this or der upon the carriers revenues If in spite of this order the carrier can stil earn the reasonable return upon its investment to which un der the law it is entitled it does not plainly appear that the order is unlawful and it will not there fore be disturbed These quoted words are design anyIprocess investigation by which the commission ma v reach the conclusion that any challenged rate is unreasonable and the words are potent to effect that design- If the carriers ate to have a square deal in this proposed legis lation it is eseential that there should be clear and adequate pro vision empowering the courts on review of the commissions order to take into consideration all the circumstances and conditions which the commission could consider and to determine the very question determined by the commission namely Is the rate complained of under all the circumstances con trolling or affecting it fair just and reasonable Otherwise rates es tablished by the commission un reasonably low in themselves or with reference to controlling conditions but not amounting in their effect upon the carriers revenues to a deprivation of property would not be subject to any adequate judi cial reviewIn absence of opportunity for more careful consideration of the other features of the bill I pre fer not to speak of them now LIVlNtiSTOJN W C Mullins has been on the sick list fora

gory sham bles Arsenal cannon anti machine guns of English make were used Many troops were cut to pieces by the hail of bullets tram the housetops The killed and wounded on both sides number thousands The situation is hourly growing worse Twentyfive thousand troops were used against the armed revolutionists- St Petersburg Dec25Tith Mos cows baptism of blood the revolution aries made good their threat to trans form the strike into armed rebellion and the next 48 hours should determine whether they can marshal suff- icIent strength to plunge the country into an actual state of civil war and seriously threaten the immediate downfall of the government The government professes confi dence that the whole attempt will fail owing to the woeful insufficiency of arms in possession of the proletariat and by reason of the loyalty of the army as a whole but its calculations might again be rudely upset A few arsenals might be seized to furnish arms or the open support of a few reglments might start a landslide in the army Certainly the shrewdest of the revolutionary leaders fully appreciate that the issue must be decided by the attitude of the army which is yet to cast the die While the military succeeded everywhere in driving the insurgents from their barricades in Moscow Saturday night the defeat evidently was not a decisive one as barricades were again thrown up in dozens of places Sunday morning and fighting was renewed be fore 11 oclock- LondonDec 26The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph at St Pee tersburg in a dispatch dated at 645 p m December 25 says At an early hour this morning the casualties Moscow were estimated at 5OOOI killed and 14000 wound ed with the fighting still proceeding The inhabitants of Moscow liave been forbidden to leave their dwellings after 7 oclock in the even ing It is Impossible to move about the city in consequence of the fre quency of stray bullets Many inno cent persons have been accidentally killed A scarcity of provisions is threatened The driving force behind both the troops and the rebels is no longer that of enthusiasm or of any human impulse It is the force of superhuman hate and hence the deeds reported fire not the acts of patriots soldiers 01 otherwise but the enormities of madmenFor barricade destroyed Sunday two or three appeared in other paces Orders were given by the revolutionists to shoot only when there was good hope of bringing a man down but otherwise to tire out the troops until they lost patience Tn the meantime In their houses the bulk of the population cowers in the inmost recesses of kitchens and cellars stricken with fear and trem bling at every boom of the cannon or the explosion of a bomb The most surprising thing of all is the loyalty of the troops which no boly here Anticipated body here anticipated Talking with an intelligent group or St Petersburg revolutionists I was Informed that while they believed the etrike would be victorious they fully realized that they were staking every falhirerwould set hack their cause for several years They said they were devoting their efforts to shaking the foundations of Russian finance In full confidence that once the
