Predicts Ruin of Industry by
HE FAVORS ANTI-TRUST BILLS
Ifortlicrn Securities President Fore
sees Crisis In American Commerce
TarlH 3Inst Come Down
Favors Publicity of Trusts.
OREGONIAN" XEWS BUREAU, Wash
lngton, Feb. 9. "-is labor unions killed
Industrial England, so are they destined to
bring about a grave financial reverse In the
United States, and the country la swlftl?
approaching that crisis. It may come In
a year. It may be deferred till tho Prcsl
dentlal year, but It Is bound to come."
So says James J. MIL He denies that
the United States Is the leading manu
facturing nation of the world and la rap-
Idly gathering to Its iosom, tho markets
of the world.
"The truth is," says he, "this country
Is losing ground In a manufacturing way.
and we will do very well to hold our own
markets. Our competitors aro sweeping
us (wide, because of the high coot of pro
duction here. This hlsh cost of produc
lion Is due to tho growth of labor union
ism. "We can't meet the price of German
and English manufacturers and pay the
wages tho unions compel. So long as the
tariff Is maintained, we may hold out own
markets, but some day tho people of tho
West will kick over and demand that the
tariff be lowered. This sentiment Increases
the farther "West one goos."
Ho says Germany now leads tho world
In manufactures and Is making swifter
program than any other country, because
her laborers work cheaply and spend GS
hours a week In tho factory, whereas our
laborers work but 44. Furthermore, Ger
man mechanics aro superior. Before we
can compete with Germany, we must
lower the cost of production and elevate
tho quality of our products.
Mr. Mil, referring to tho Department of
Commerce amendment, says he eecs no
reason why a corporation should oppose
the jtpeciflactlon that statements be made
at stated times setting forth the dealls
of the business.
"We In the railroad business do It," said
lie, "and I think It would be a good thing
If the Standard Oil Company did it"
He says the new department should be
placed In the hands of the right man, that
politics should be eliminated. "What Is
wanted?' he said, referring to trust legis
lation generally, "Is legislation to pre
vent the watering of stock; make that
restriction and a great good will be accomplished."

DAY FULL OF DICKERING
But Delaware Factions Are Xo Nrnr
. er Asrceracnt on Senators.
DOVER, Del Feb. 9. Another day has
passed, and the Senatorial situation is no
nearer a solution than it was when the
Legislature met. but the day was full of
Interesting Incidents and rumors. The
first thing sprung today was the Demo
cratic ultimatum. Then came the Demo
cratic caucus, which was attended by all
the ten -members of that faction.
The Democratic ultimatum was a prop
osition to be submitted to the regular Re
publicans, In which tho Democrats agreed
to support Congressman Ball for the long
term, and eventually to support some
other equally staunch regular Republican
for the short term. But for some reason
the ultimatum failed of Its purpose. The
regular Republicans held a caucus lato In
the day, at which it was decided to notify
the Union Republicans that. In case the
regulars reached an agreement of any
kind with the Democrats, they would pro
ceed with their proposition without a mo
ment s notice to the Union Republicans.
It was further decided not to enter a
caucus with the Addlcks men on the Ad'
dicks withdrawal proposition, which
would virtually give Addlcks the power to
name the United States Senators, anflT
lastly, the regulars decided to continue
balloting for Ball and Dupont.
It is an open question whether tire Dem
ocratic leaders can turn enough rotes over
to the regulars to elect Ball or any other
man that should bo selected.
The ballot today resulted:
Long term Addlcks, a; Handy, 20; Ball,
S: Hlgglns, 2.
Short term Addlcks, 19; Tunnell, 20; T.
C Dupont, 2; H. A. Dupont, 8; II. A.
PROTEST AGAINST SMOOT.
I'tah People Object to Mormon Apos
tle as Senator.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.-Senator Bur
rows, chairman of the committee on prlvi
leges and elections, has received a -pro
test against the seating of Reed Smoot
as a Senator from Utah, on the ground
that he is an apostle of the Mormon
church.'and, that, as such, he should not
represent the people of Utah in the Sen
ate. The document is voluminous and
quotes liberally from sermons, speeches
and other Mormon utterances, showing
the power of the priesthood of the Mor
mon church over all matters, .spiritual
Senator Frye. as president pro tem of
the Senate, read a copy of the protest.
It was decided by Senators Burrows and
Frye not to present the' protest to the
Senate until Mr. Smoot a credentials are
presented, when both will be referred to
the committee on -privileges and elections,
A statement furnished to the commit
tee gives the politics and occupation of
the signers to show that all of them are
of high standing In the state. It shows
that 150 of the signers are Republicans
and four Democrats.

In August last, hare commenced an ac

Nelson was to receive 123,000, and her
daughters Jewelry valued at 5100,000.
It was claimed at the time that under
the California laws Mr. Fair outlived his
wife, and therefore his relatives were en

man of the House appropriations commit
