It may well be assumed that In legislating upon the subject congress will lay down as the guiding rule for the de- termination of rates, that they shall be reasonable. Just, and impartial. That rule would be the law, and the com- mission would be charged with its exe- cution, after ascertaining and deciding what would be Just, reasonable*, and Impartial rates. If It be clala.cd that rates conforming to this standard will conflict with this clause of the consti- tution because they do not prescribe a uniform charge per ton per mile to and from the ports of the different atatea, and that a preference is given to the porta of those states where the lower charge prevails, I have no hesi- tation whatever in expressing my dia- aent from this claim.

For the last fifteen hours practically every member of the Kansas City detective force has been scouting the town for a clew that would Indicate that foul play had been com- mitted. The investigation which has been conducted has been as thorough as could be. yet nothing has developed to indicate that the young man re- ceived mistreatment, excepting at his own hands. Toung Croker's assertion while in Kansas City, that he carried but a small amount of money, depend- ing mainly on his check-book, would in- dicate that robbery has not entered _ Into the case.
