July 20.— The interstate commerce commission, in fln opinion by Commissioner Pi-outy* hns announced its decision in the case of the Grain Shippers' Association of northwest iowa against the Illinois Central Railroad Company and others. The commission finds that the transportation of grain eastward from Kansas City and from Sioux City and other points in the territory adjacent to Sioux City is subject to competition between the carriers; but while reduced rates have resulted from the competition at Kansas City the competition in northwest Iowa has been more effectively restrained by nu agreement formerly in effect, and, since such agreement was canceled, by continuance of rates without substantial reduction. The commission decides that the 19-cent rate on corn from Sioux City and other points in adjacent territory should be reduced; that the 17-cent rate on corn now in effect from most points in western Iowa should be extended to Sioux City and points in Iowa on the east of the Sioux City & St. Paul railroad (now part of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &' Omaha system), and that corresponding reduction should be made from other points in southeastern South Dakota. The commission further holds that, while no opinion is expressed as to what is the propel- relation of the rates on wheat and corn from Sioux City and adjacent territory, tho difference of 4 cents. which no.w prevails from most shipping points in that section, should not be exceeded. Tho coin pi u in ants also demanded reparation, but this was denied upon the ground that there is no proof that the rates were unreason able at the time they were paid.

The rebels at Apani have refused to permit civilian Spanish prisoners, to whose release Aguinaldo had agreed, to em- bnrk on n ship leaving there, although they had passports signed by Aguinaldo.

Yves Gnyot's opinion, given in an interview which was cabled recently, concerning the scope of the llennes trial, is con tinned by an official statement from the government that the court-martial must confine its attention to the bordereau and nothing else.

The trouble is, we fellows went over there to fight, while .there were others Xvho attended to pollti6* and d plomacy. The only time Otis and I disagreed was on this point 1 held that the War should be pushed to completion, while his policy was still that of coneilration."

He replied by wire as follows: "I said my division, or Lawton's, could have defeated the organized rebel forces, but no one could tell how long predatory warfare would last.
