What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Depca d Commanders Refute to Go to England. Washington. Feb. 24.—The Pacific railroad committee of the bouse today continued the hearings. Thomas H. Hubbard appeared to argue that so far aathe Central Pacific was concerned. It had fully performed Its obligations to the government. He undertook to an swer the allegations In the Anderson re port. Whatever existed lu the minds of the public adverse to the road was embodied In that report. The differ ence between the two suggested meth ods of settlement In the report of the commission and the Frye bill was that the former proposed to extend the debt 50 years a t 3 per cent, the latter 100 years a t 2 per cent. Taking up the mi nority report of the commission.' made by Governor Pattlson, he characterized Its statements a s exaggerated, produc ing fabulous figures as to the profits of the constructors of the road, based on compound Interest for 30 years, ap plying the same method of reasoning to .the advantages which had accrued to the government on the Increase of Its land values, etc. He sold the result would be equally fabulous. The report placed the amount realized from sold lands a t $7,300,000, when In fact the last estimate was but $3,000,000 so realized. He then took up the majority report, and called attention to Its conclusion regarding several requirements of the act In aid of the road. He said It was apparent that the road had been built according to requirements, and com pleted six years before agreement. It had performed Its obligations also In the transportation of troops and In pay ments from Its earnings. In the light of these facts, he said. It seemed strange thht the companies were con stantly referred to as Insolvent or a s un deserving. and the question was con stantly asked. \Why not make the Pa- clflo railroads disgorge?\ Why not make them make restitution?\ The grounds upon which these, ques tions were constantly reiterated were not that the obligations of the company had not been performed, but that the assetahad been diverted by undue prof lu during the construction. But unless the profits to the constructors were lim ited by the provisions of the act. who was to measure what the proflu should be? As a matter of fact the profits had resulted from enhancement of the values of stocks which w m entirely unsalable when the roads were com pleted. Several years afterward, how ever, much of this stock was sold abroad, and 1U value Increased until It was worth SO. It has been as high as 90 and as low os 10 or 15. General Hub bard thought the question of settle ment should be considered a s a business proposition, and the contract as one between Individuals. The question of what profit each p arty to It made should not enter. The fundamental error In the minds of the public was that the men who built the road were treated as trustees. The government wanted the road across the continent, and did not want to build one Itself. It agreed to contribute the bonds, the latter to be ultimately redeemed. The constructors were expected to do so, certainly not without the expectation of profit discouraging Influences of a reaction In Americans In the London market and mod- cessions In prices were fractional, with the exception of leather preferred, which slumped IK per cent to CA.

The quotations for some leading case and before the discovery of the body several plausible clues had been developed, tending to the supposition of murder for money. None of these were sufficiently definite, however, to Justify action, and at a late hour lost night the mystery seemed as far from solution as at the beginning of the search. In crossing Hangman creek on the high bridge Mr. Honey, who resides In Queen Anne addition, saw a strange looking obJaetTfi- the water and upon closer Inspection found It to be the body of a man, held near the shore by the feet having become entangled In the willow brush.

He had on all his clothes, except that his pantaloons had been pulled down nnd one leg was stripped. This bears out the theory of robbery In connection with tbe murder, ns It Is known that Perrl carried tho bulk of his money In a belt or garter around his leg. Just below the knee. That was missing, but In an insldo vest pocket was a small purse containing $10.10.
