Washington, Feb. 4.—'‘Flagrant, wilful and continuous violations'’ of the law during the past five year* la the way In which the Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe railroad is arraigned in a decision promulgated Friday by the Interstate commerce commission on the ""alleged unlawful rates and practices ' af that road in the transportation of coal and mine supplies, involving also the Colorado Fuel a Iron company. The main points of the decision, sum- i marizing the wa> in which ii is alleged the law has bein violated and disregarded are as follows:
“The act to regulate commerce requires carriers to publish and adhere to their tariffs The Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe Railway company has for the last five years wilfully and contin- j nously violated this provision of the law in the respects above stated.
"February 19. 1903, the so-called ‘Elkins bill' was enacted, providing that carriers should in no case transport traffic until a tariff had been published, 1 and that the published tariff should be ' observed, and providing a penalty of not less than $1,000 nor more than $23,- i OOO for each offense The provisions of this statute extend both to the railway company which grants and the party which receive* the concession Both the Santa Fe and the Colorado Fuel & Iron company systematically and continuously violated the provisions of that act in the particulars mentioned from the day of its passage down to November 27, 1904, when the tariffs under which this coal moved wer* reduced In all cas^s $1.15. It would seem that the El Paso & Southwestern railroad was also in violation of the same statute during that period, but that company was not a party to this proceeding and has not been heard.
“It should be further observed that on March 25, 1002, the United States circuit court, in a suit began at the instance and request of the interstate commerce commission enjoining the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company to observe In all respects its published schedules of rates. That Company from the date of this injunction down to November 27, 1904, was Apparently In continuous disregard of that order of court in Its failure to tfintain these coal tariffs.”

Washington. Feb. 4.—President Roosevelt s connection with the diversion of indian trust funds to the support of Catholic mission schools is explained and justified in a communication addressed to the president by Attorney General Moody which was filed with the s« nate committee on Indian affairs by William ll. Ketchum, director of the bureau of Catholic Indian missions.
Father Ketcham appeared before the committee to defend his bureau against the charges that it has been using un due and political influences to secure the ttse of tnist funds for Catholic schools.
Mr Moody's communication, dated February 25, 1905, sets forth th# record of a cabinet meeting held In January. 1904. when the question of the nae of Indian funds for sectarian schools was discussed and the president asked for an opinion as to his authority to direct that contracts be made for the use of such funds by de* i nominations! educational Institutions. Senator Knox th**n attorney general. decided that the action of congress in declaring it to be the policy of the government not to permit the nee of the public mopers of the American people for sectsrlsn purposes did not repeal previous laws giving to the secretary ■ of the interior discretion to use the : indian funds in arr manner he saw fit. Certain laws were cited to direct attention to the president's anthorlty In that regard.
At the cabinet meetlnr Friday Secretary Hitchcock took up the suhieet of the use of Indian trust funds for the benefit of sectarian schools Francis F !<eupp. commissioner of Tndian af-fair« was railed into the conference. It is said a statement will be Issued in s few davg re (yarding the matter
