Tho following statement with regard to the Presidents action concerning tho proposed roturnof the battleflags was made at tho White House last night to a representative ot the Associated Press When the question was proposed to the President by the Adjutant General an im portant feature suggested was the return to the loyal States of tho flags which had been capt ured by the Confederates and

one or more Northern troops visiting their late antagonists at the South had returned to them flags which had been captured in battle from those whose hospitalities they were receiving the further fact that Northern who within a short time bad been visiting Southern had spoken in tho warmest terms of the kind and hospitable treatment they had received from former Con federate anil the that sol rtiors from tho North and South wero just gathering at Washington to meet in friendly competition at the National drill seemed to indicate that if the Union flags wore re turned to the loyal States

Carriers De cide for ThomsplVdfl tVhnt Substantially Similar Qtuirt June The IntorStato Commerce Commission last night rendered a decision upon the fourth section of the IntorStato tipon the petition of the Louisville Nashville Thedecl Bion is very but the most feature is tho announcement of tlio con clusion of tho commission that the statute does not require it to prescribe in every exceptional case and grant its order for relief before tho carrier is at liberty in tariffs to depart from tho general The carrier must judga for itself what aro substantially similar and conditions which preclude the special rebate or drawback which is made slnca no tribunal is empowered to judge for It un til after the carrier has and then only for the purpose of determining whether its action constitutes a violation of Tho carrier judges on peril of tho consequences but tho special rebate or drawback which It grants is not illegal when it turns out that the circumstances nnd conditions aro not such as forbid Tho will not under take to decide in advance what constitutes discrimination under substantially simi lar circumstances and but will leave tho railroad in fixing thoir to act upon their own nnd at their subject to accountability before tho commission and courts in cases where complaint is made by interested par ties of violation of tho The commisdon says tho temporary or ders for relief from tho operations of sec tion 4 will bo permitted to remain in force until the expiration of the time limited For the guidance of railroad com panies the commission gives the following conclusions on all questions raised under the fourth section of tho law Tho prohibition In the fourth section against a greater charge for a shorter than for a longer distance over the same line in the same the shorter being included within the longer as qualiHed te limited to cases in which tho circumstances and conditions are substantially Tho phrase under substantially similar circumstances ami conditions in the fourth sec tion Is used in tho same sense as in the second and under the qualified form of prohi bition in tho fourth section carriers are re quired to judge In the first instance with re gard to similarity or dissimilarity of circum stances and conditions that forbid or permit greater charge for the shorter The judgment of carriers with respect to circumstances and conditions is not but subject to the authority of tho commission and courts to decide whether an error has been committed or whether the statute has been Tho existence of nctual competition which is of controlling force in respect to traf fic important in amount may make out dissimi lar circumstances and conditions entitling the carrier to charge less for a longer than for a shorter haul over the same line in tho same di tho shorter being included in the longer in the following cases When the competition is with tho car riers by water which are not subject to the provisions of the statute when the competi tion is willa foreign or other railroads which are not subject to the provisions of the statute in rare and peculiar cases of competition between railroads which aro subject to tho statute when a strict application of the general rulu of the statute would bo destructive of Tho commission further decides that when a greater charge in tho aggregate is made for fho transportation of passengers or like kind property for a shorter than for a longer distance over the Siime line in the samo tho shorter being in cluded in the longer it is not suf ficient justification that tho traffic which is subjected to such greater charge Is way or local and that which is given tho more favorable rates is Notis it sufficient just ification for such greater charge that shorthaul truffle is more expensive to the when the circumstances are such as to make it exceptionally expensive or the longhaul traf iio exceptionally the difference being extraordinary and susceptible of Nor that the lessor charge on the longer haul is merely a continuation of the favorable itites under which trade centers have been built Tho fact that the longhaul traffic will only bear certain rates is no reason for currying it for less than cost at the expenses of other NOTICE TO Inspector of Calls a Mooting of the Gambling Fraternity at IJnttory nuil Informs Them of Determination of Mayor Koclie to Up Thoir
