Cnr-lAind Kiites on Cnttlo. In llit!iciisea of Abiul Leonard and r.ci^m n. Cimppullo ngainBt tbo Cbieii(;S> and Alton Railroad company, it is hold that the main question in these cases was whether carriers nan rightfully substitute for tho practice of charging car-load rates on cnttlo, irrespective of weight, the rule that while a car-lot rato is named, a minimum weight for a car- lo id is prescribed, and any excess over the minimum Is to bo charged for by tho hundred pounds in proportion to tho car-lot rates. Tho commission decides that thisrulo is not unlawful, and, being more in proportion to the service rendered, it is prlina facie nioro just and reasonable than, the practice it supplanted. The Stute Mult Stand Aiilde. Upon th« hearing it was shown that by state law or tho rulings of state commissions, shippers of cattle in Kansas or Mis. souri, to points within the state had the right to load cars without regard to weight at a standing price per car. It was said that the rulo was the same in some othor states, and the commission was urged to conform thereto. The commission holds that such state action is not a reason for adopting tho like rule in inter-stato traffic, if that course is found not to bo most just and politic. The grant to the federal government of the power to regulate inter-state commerce Is full and complet3, and can not bj narrowed or encroached upon by etato authority, either directly or indirectly. ROUGH ON THE RE-RATED. The Decision In Senator Blaudento'n'* Case Coven Twenty-One Others. WASHINGTON CITY, Oct 15.—There are twenty-one cases among pension ofllco em- ployes, and a number among officials in other executive departments, which are almost identical with tho Mandorson cose, the decision of which was made public by Senator Mauderson Bunday. Senator Manderson was re-rated for a pension without any knowledge on his part, and a certificate for the money issued to him. Senator Man- deraon doubted the validity of the action of the pension office, and Sacrotary Noble in his opinion held that Commissioner Tanner's action was without warrant in law. Borne of tba officers la tho pension bureau, who were re-rated like Senator .Manders6n, made no application therefor, while others did; but all of tha twenty-one cases, with Deputy Commissioner of Pensions Smith at their noon for 1'i-ovi li-ii'-c, It- ! . to ntL meeting of thn <-i-inmM-i.-inl b'«li--s <>f Hint state culled to ili-c'sss tho question of location of. thn I^'J exposition.

Smith was having a streak of bad luck and Graham found it out, and said to him: "Say, Smith, I've got a little scheme which I think there is a good deal of money in, if tho right man takes hold of it." "What is it?" Smith asked, with tho dejected air of a man who hod heard of schemes before. ' "Why, It's simple enough, but it will require some judgment and nerve," "Toll me what it is." "It's worth $1,000 cash down to the right man," said Graham nonchalantly. TUo Scheme Narrated. Smith's eyes sparkled as ho heard the amount mentioned, and he drew his chair closer to Graham's and eagerly awaited a fuller explanation ot tho "scheme." The explanation was soon forthcoming. Graham, cautiously at first, tut with greater detail as ha proceeded, unfolded the preconceived plot to procure bribed jurors to try the men who are on trial for the murder of Dr. Cronin. He said that it was absolutely necessary to defeat the ends of justice in this case to save certain men, whom he described as good and reliable citizens, from the humilatlon of standing trial in the future for alleged participation in the same crime. , Mont Defeat Public Opinion. "The whole trouble Is," sold Graham, "that public opinion Is so aroused that It will be Impossible for Coughlln and the others to get a fair trial, hence wo must protect them from the clamor by the only means wd have In our power, to use." He continued to argue in this strain for awhile, and Smith declares that he was more than half satisflad that tho defendants wore really in need of some sort of outside assistance.

The present condition of thu eight-hour movement received a full and free discussion, and it was shown that both organizations were workiiK "P the matter very vigorously and receiving much encouragement. Planning to Woi'k Together. It was agreed that tho federation givo tho knights' exi!<'iitive board for presentation, to Hi B general aa-sembly a written statement of their views and tlioir plan of action, and President Gompars, it possibly will attend the general assembly aud .address tlio dole- gates.

Tho pnsjnt condition of tho relations of the different labor organizations to each other was next discuasoJ with a view to harmonizing various interests, and to prevsnt disputes and disagreemunta in fucuro. j,he knights offered a written proposition sug;jst- ing a mutual exchange of. working car In; a mutual recognition of trado labels, and thu adoption of a rule which would pravent one body from organizing the suspended or ex- polled mombars of another.

With H blow of his fist he brenks an iron chain that will hear a pressure of 3,000 pounds. With his two hands grasping a short chain of 2,500 pounds ascertained pressure, he makes a momentary effort and pulls the iron chain to bits,,and in what seems th'o most wonderful feat—namely, fastening two tight iron chain bracelets or armlets round his bleeps—the spectator may view tho process from beginning to end. One hears tho strong man tako a long breath, seep the muscles of his arm growing bigger and bigger, tho cords of hia ueck swelling with the sustained effort, his face crimsoning, nnd then, in tho silence, those nearest tho stage can hear a curious little sundering snap. It is tho double chain armlet that has broken and that the next second falls ringing to the floor. When Samson's fist is clenched and he is ready to strike the measurement of hia upper arm round biof-pi and triceps is 19J inches, which, wo may casually remark, is considered a to'lera- ble waist for a young lady. Among some of his minor feats—if such displays can bo called minor— Samson took a penny piece from 011,0 of his audience, nnd at ono trial ho bent it •with his fingers, as ono may bend a railway ticket, held it up to view for a second; and then deliberately broke it in half, and returned :.tho pieces to the owner. A very little practice will convince amateurs of tho hopelessness of breaking pennies with linger and thumb. The strong man next bent a font foot iron gas pipe round his neck, and cheerfully straightened it again by repeated blows on the left arm, such arm 'being for tho nonce-ii cp^^i^o 01" anvil. jFour-^ teen men came upon the slagcTty invitation, to pull against him; but Samson, not deeming them enough, or sizing up their athletic capabilities with a professional eye, expressed a wish for four more. Theso men ho divided into nine a side, tho two sides nearly the width of n man's stretch apart, and each side being provided with, and grasping a strong and lengthy iron rod. Before placing himself between them Samson stimulated their ardor by promising £100 to them if ho failed to move them, and ap parently there was a grateful determination on the men's faces to win the pour-boire.
