federal courts. The court's an announcement
nouncement announcement was made at the hear
ing on Thaw's petition to be admit-;
ted to bail.
"The constitutional questions in involved
volved involved in this case," added Judge
Aldrich, "are of such importance
that 1 shall not pass upon them my myself,'
self,' myself,' but shall forward them as
promptly as possible to the supreme
court of the United States."
The constitutions questions are
concerned with Thaw's extradition,
his status in New York and his
status in New Hampshire.
The attorneys for Thaw who are
attempting to prevent the habeas
corpus proceedings in the United
States district court and counsel for
Xew York state, had agreed that the
charge of conspiracy to' escape from
the insane asylum at Matteawan, N.
Y.v was a bailable offense when, the

admitted to bail, would be a menace
to the community, was raised by

RAISE IX RAILROAD RATES
The railroads of the country have
notified the Interstate Commerce
Commission that it is necessary for
them to raise their freight tariffs in
order to meet their expenses and
put their equipment up to the stand
ard required by increased traffic.
It would seemi at first that this re re-quest

However, if it comes from a gen genuine
uine genuine need, it should be granted.
The public does not want to pay
for the maintenance of lobbies at
Washington and every state capital,
and it does not want to help pay the
i salaries of high-priced lawyers,
maintained by the corporations to
defeat on technical points the laws
that are passed for the relief of the
people. It is, however, willing to
pay for good trains and safe roadr
beds, and it never grudges a dollar
that goes toward paying better
wages to the railroad men, who are
in themselves an important part of
The "people of interior Florida

complain more against the uneven uneven-ness

for the in jnst proportion and use the rev

The Carew Case.
The Man of Iron.
Whoever it was that dubbed Theo Theodore
dore Theodore Van Vechten the "Man ot Iron,"
he displayed a pretty wit. For the
phrase was descriptive of the man,
both figuratively and literally.
His offices were in New Street, just
off of Wall, and quite close to the
Stock Exchange; a location unrivaled
for his purposes, which were both
tremendous and infinitely various. He
has also been likened to a fat 6pider
lurking in the midst of his web, the
filaments of which radiate in all di directions
rections directions throughout the contiguous
territory, and every one of them
guiding a steady stream of gold into
the Van Vechten coffers.
Theodore Van Vechten typified
Power. "' 1
There was, first of all, the prestige
of the enormous Van Vechten for
tune; and then the regulation and su supervision
pervision supervision of all the money, stocks and
bonds within rifle shot of his office;
which is to say, the entire country,
for even the United States sub-treasury
its parent also for that mat matter
ter matter is not excluded from this sweep sweeping
ing sweeping statement.
As head of the Consolidated Metals
Company, he was a shining target for
the United States Attorney-General
and, it is no doubt needless to add,
an invulnerable target. There was not
a metal article manufactured and
marketed, from a pin or a wire
clothesline to a locomotive, motor-car
or battleship, that did not contribute
along one or another of the web's fila filaments
ments filaments to the aforementioned Van
Vechten fortune. Hence, literally, he
was the "Man of Iron."
He was a big man physically as
well as mentally, which was as it
should have been. His activity de demanded
manded demanded prodigious physical strength
and vitality, and these two factors in
his make-up, together with an inflex inflexible
ible inflexible will, showed never so advanta advantageously
geously advantageously as in his habitual reserve, his
steady, unswerving eelf-assurance.
which made obstacles of no more im importance
portance importance than so many sheets of pa pa-i
i pa-i per opposed to a speeding bullet.
As for his personal appearance, its
general effect was one of iron gray-
ness: the smooth-shaven lips
straight, thin, uncompromising line
that scarcely moved even when he
spoke; the bare chin was square, mas massive,
sive, massive, iron-like, and the closely
trimmed gray "sideboards" were well well-nigh
nigh well-nigh eclipsed by these more salient
features. His eyes, under a thatch of
gray brows, were simply a metallic
glitter beyond whose surface no man
had ever seen. His moments of weak weakness,
ness, weakness, if he had any, would have been
another man's" strength.
There was only one person who had
ever been wholly at ease in this man's
presence his nephew, Rudolph Van
Vechten. Of the hundreds who came
into and went out of the New Street
offices, this young man alone seemed
wholly oblivious of the fact, or indif indifferent
ferent indifferent to it, that Theodore Van Vech Vechten
ten Vechten had but to utter the word, and
he would be extinguished.
Rudolph paid his uncle a visit on
the Monday afternoon that Tom Phin-
ney was cruising around Long Island
Sound in his friend's catboat. He
entered the inner shrine, and of
course found his uncle busy. The cir circumstance
cumstance circumstance was pointed out to him.
Rudolph ignored the other two men
"I see that you are," he retorted
carelessly, "and I am sorry that I
have to intrude. But you always are
engaged, you know, and it would be
idiotic to wait. I'll hurry up and get
The forceful regard rested pointed pointedly
ly pointedly upon the young man's monogramed
cigarette. Unmoved. Rudolph flipped j
"Pardon me," he said; "I forgot
I came to see you i
' Perhaps ten seconds it was that Mr.
Van Vechten considered. Then
"Can you take dinner with me?"
This was an invitation which any
one of New York's industrial captains
would have coveted. Nevertheless
Rudolph hesitated. Mentally, he ran
over his engagements. He knew there
was nothing of sufficient importance
to interfere with an acceptance, but
he did not fancy dining tete-a-tete
with his uncle in the gloomy Fifth
Avenue palace untenanted, save by j
tne latter ann an army or

so, wnn a comprehensive gesture mat
took in the two men (though he did
not so much as glance at them), he
"Can't you chuck it?"
! "Chuck it!" echoed Mr. Van Vech Vechten,
ten, Vechten, blankly.
"Yes. Postpone for a minute or
' two whatever you are doing now. It's
i too beastly hot to go anywhere."
I The Man of Iron simply glared.
What words could affect such sub sub-jlimely
jlimely sub-jlimely unconscious cheek? The two
; strangers, who knew that they were
not the objects of that look, eat with
bated breath; but Rudolph seemed se serenely
renely serenely unaware of it.
Rudolph's request, however, from
his standpoint was not impudent. His
uncle was under more of an obliga obligation
tion obligation to concern himself about Paige
Carew than he was, for Paige was the
elder man's niece and ward. Young
Van Vechten recognized the fact that
Theodore Van Vechten was a man of j
j multitudinous affairs; he was willing
to make any reasonable sacrifice to
accommodate him; but when it came
to throwing over all his own plans and
loafing here in the city without defi definite
nite definite information concerning his cous cousin's
in's cousin's intentions, why, he considered he
had a right to protest when and where
he chose. If he only knew upon what
boat she intended sailing, it would
be an easy matter to run down to
town for a day, meet her and Mrs.
Devereaux and carry the two away
with him. It was the uncertainty that
rendered him vexed and impatient.
Gradually Mr. Van Vechten's brain
bridged the wide gap between matters
commercial and those immediately af affecting
fecting affecting his own household, and he rec recognized
ognized recognized the justice of his nephew's
attitude. The thin, inflexible lips even
shadowed a smile at the temerity that
had exacted his attention. One of
these men who sat humbly waiting
here was no less a personage than the
president of the Continental Union
Banking and Trust Company; the
other was head of the Atlas Safe
Company, a concern tributary to and
allied with Consolidated Metals, and
which had of late monopolized Theo Theodore
dore Theodore Van Vechten's fostering care. In
the world of finance and commerce
theirs were names to conjure with;
here they were merely lieutenants
awaiting their captain's pleasure.
"Well?" Mr. Van Vechten at last
broke the silence.
" Rudolph was brief and to the point.
"Last Saturday ended the third
week since Paige and Josephine left
Paris for London. In a letter mailed
just before starting, Paige informed
me that she expected to remain in
England two or three weeks three
at the longest and mentioned a num number
ber number cf friends she proposed visiting.
Some I know, and some I don't. Since
then I have had no word from her:
