STATEMENT ON NORWAY'S ACT Chklsttana, Norway.

July 23. It was stated at the foreign office today that the action of the Norwegian Government In regard to the right ot the steamers of the Blueflelds Steamship Company and other vessels flying the Norwegian flag to enter the port of Blueflelds, declared under blockade by President Madriz of Nicaragua, followed the receipt of a communication from the Nlcaraguan government. This communication which came to Norway through its legation at Havana, set forth that the port of Blue-fields had been closed to foreign commerce in consequence of the conditions prevailing In that country. Thereupon the Norwegian foreign office; through Its consulates on the Gulf of Mexico and in Central America, called the attention of Norwegian shipmasters and ship owners to the risks incurred by vessels running into Blueflelds. The statement of the foreign office was called forth by the report from Washington that the State Department there, following the appeal of American shipping interests at New Orleans, had declared Blueflelds an open port.

As the shipping between New Orleans and Blueflelds is chiefly done in Norwegian bottoms, the actions of the two governments, one in recognizing and the other In Ignoring the asserted blockade, ran counter.

"That bill was a direct repudiation of the Republican platform of 1908 and It was directly in the interest of the railroads and not in the interest of the. great common people of the country," said Senator Cummins. "Speaker Cannon, senator Aldrlch and members of their class seems to think the Republican party waa formed to make men rich. I think it waa born to make men free.

They think It was born to make men millionaires; I think It was born to drive misery out of this country. "Senator Aldrlch has vigorously opposed all regulation of the railroads by Cotigress ever since the bill to create the Interstate Commerce Commission was Introduced in 1S87. I was born and always have been a Republican, but I can not and will not follow the leadership of a traitor to his party and the people. Watered Stock. "I am not opposed to the railroads.

No man who values -the public welfare can be hostile to the railroads, but Justice to all means to pay the righteous dues as fixed by the laws of trade, by competition or through society. "You have to pay more than you ought for the service you get in order to pay dividends on this vast capitalization. There Is nearly nine billions of dollars of impur and adulterated water. "The first legislation to regulate railroads came in 1887 with the passage of the Interstate Commerce Commission bill. Speaker Cannon was in the House then.

He made no effort to restrict the growing power of the railroads or to enact legislation in favor of the Nation. He was silent then and he has been silent ever Not a single instance can be shown in the Congressional Record when Cannon lifted up his voice in behalf of the common men and women." o- ROGtS CHECKS. r.

D. McReynolds of the Hamilton County Criminal Court today sustained a motion to quash the indictment against the J. W. Kelly Company of Chattanooga, indicted for selling whiskey in Tennessee to be shipped out of the State in violation of the manufacturers' prohibition law, holding that so far as the law came in contact with the Interstate Commerce law it was unconstitutional and hence he dismissed the Indictments. The Judge, however, held the defend ant qullty in two cases of selling wniBKey io wnoiesaie dealers in Tennessee, imposing the statutory penalty of f50 and six months in each case.

Judge McReynolas held that the State had a right under police power to regulate or forbid the sale or manufacture of liquor within Its bounds, but it can not prohibit interstate sales. The Attorney General at once filed notice of an appeal to the Supreme Court and this action will result in all three of the indictments being carried up. PROSPECT FOR A SETTLEMENT Ottawa, July 23. The possibility of bringing about the settlement of the Grand Trunk strike by means of arbitration looks somewhat brighter tonight. James Murdock, representing the men, wired M.

King, minister of labor, this evening expressing a willingness "to refer our differences to arbitration providing a board of arbitrators, mutually acceptable, can be secured." Minister King is satisfied that Mr. Murdock's communication is a bona fide offer to arbitrate and tonight he Is trying to obtain an unequtvocal statement from the Grand Trunk railroad officials. President Hay9 wired during the day that he had nothing to add to his letter of July 1, in which he took the position that a board of arMtration should be composed Of "expert railroad men." President Hays was not aware of the changed attitude of the trainmen, however, and Mr. Kin? at once wired him a copy of Mr. Murdock's tele- Lgram.

in view or tne fact that President Hays has at no time taken a positive ftand against arbitration, the feeling here ig more hopeful that Minister King's persistent efforts to place the whole controversy before a board of arbitration will be successful.
