the nomination of Louis D Brandeis to the supreme court bench challenged the declaration of Clit ford Thome chalrmaN oC the Iowa railroad commission that Bvantleis had concealed from him the attitude Brandeis would take in arguing the eastern freight ratp case before the 3f ekterday who was as in trial LONG CAREER ENDS IN TWO YEAR PRISON SENTENCE Was Indicted in July 1913 and Succeeds in

The local G A R post had chargeof the ceremonies The services at the cemetery were conducted by the Masonic order Bus iness in Clarlnda was suspended to day the bbmissibn declared he was duru founded When Brandeis at the out sent of his closing armiment conced ed the contention of the railroads that existing rate returns wero in adequate for the prosperity of the roads and the best interests the public There is one incident firm ly fixed in my said CarmaK regarding a conversation which Mr Thorne had with me on the second day of the argument in the rate case Mr Thorne I understand stated that when the commission fixed the allotment of time for attorneys to argue the case he had aslted the privilege of being permitted to fol low the counsel for the shippers in stead of opening the argument Mr Thorne asked me what Mr Brandfiis position would be There cortalrly was no disposition to conceal it from Mr Thorne I am confident that I told Mr Thorne that Mr Brandeis fcwould take the position that th net operating income of tha carriers was not adequate with special stress on the Central Freight association ter ritory Further I said that Mr Brandeis would take the same posi tion that the methods pursued by the carriers to obtain greater reve nues through a horizontal five per cent increase was not the proper method of increasing their revenues I am quite clear that it was a result ft of this conversation that Mr Thorne wrote Mr Brandeis a note asking about change in allotment of time It Is very strongly niy impression that C4because Mr Thorns recognized the attitude Mr Braudeis would take that Mr Brandela got the the con K ception that Mr Thorne wanted an p to answer Brandeis In to Mr Thomes main argu ment in the Atlanta Feb Dav id Lamar comes from New York City early next
