Ballinger Sends Man to Rose
burg to Work Off Accumu
lation. SURVEYS ARE APPROVED
Land Commissioner Is Induced by
Bourne to Relieve Long-Suffering
Oregon Settlers Open
Much land to Entry.
REGOKTAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, April 16. After a conference' with
and upon the recommendation of Sen
ator Bourne, Land Commissioner Ballin
ger has ordered Special Inspector O'Brien,
of Denver, to proceed to Roseburg and
assist the local land officers in clear
ing up the accumulation of business in
their office. Work has fallen behind
to such an extent that there are now
pending about 700 land cases and contests
awaiting action. When the Roseburg of
fice is straightened out, similar work is
to be done elsewhere in Oregon.
Because of lack of appropriation, the
Commissioner Is unable to Increase the
clerical force of any Oregon land offices,
though he realizes the need of more
clerks to handle the great mass of busi
ness now being transacted. The Com
missioner said .he would do everything
possible to relieve the situation in Ore
gon. He believes he will be able ulti
mately to bring the Oregon work up to
At the further request of Mr. Bourne,
the Commissioner has directed that im
mediate examination be made of all pend
ing public land surveys in Oregon, some
of which have been held up as much as
ten years because of adverse reports of
Inspectors. All surveys found to be cor
rect will be accepted and paid for and,
unless there Is some Important reason
for withholding plats, the land covered
by such surveys will be opened to entry.
Where pending surveys are found to be
erroneous the surveyors will be notified
and be given the option of making cor
rections, so that their contracts may be
closed out and those areas as well thrown
open to entry.
A large number of bona fide settlers Is
enduring hardships by the delay in ap
proving these old contraots. There will
be no more holdups in Oregon on mere
suspicion. Mr. Ballinger will demand evi
dence. CONFERENCE ON LAND LAWS

Labor Slen Want Attack on Moyer
and Haywood Verified.
CHICAGO, April 16. One week hav
ing passed since the Chicago Federation
of Labor sent its telegram to President
Roosevelt, and no answer having been
received, the officials of the federation
will at its meeting tomorrow send a
special .messenger from Chicago to the
White House to ask the Nation's Chief
Executive to verify the language cred
ited to him In referring to Moyer and
Haywood as "undesirable citizens."
During the last week several sessions
of the executive board of the federation
have been held in the hope that an an
swer will be raised from Washington
and the necessity of taking further
action in the matter would be averted.
Moyer and Haywood, to whom refer
ence is made in the communication,
are awaiting trial in Idaho, charged
with the murder of ex-Governor Steun
enberg, and the trial is set for May 9.
WASHINGTON, April 16. No reply
has been made by the President to pro
tests sent him by the Chicago Federa
tion of Labor and the executive com
mittee of the Moyer-Haywood confer
ence at New York, which took excep
tion to his reference to Moyer and
Haywood, the men charged with the
murder of ex-Governor Steunenberg, of
Idaho, as "undesirable citizens." These
words were used in the President's let
ter to Representative Sherman in the
controversy with Mr. Harrlman. It is
not believed the President will make
any answer to the protests regarding

Eight Hours and $3 a Day.
SAN FRANCISCO. April 16. Though
both sides to the controversy refuse

it, there Is definite Information that
the streetcar men of San Francisco have
been for some days formulating a re
newed demand for an eight-hour day,
with S per day, to be submitted some
time before the first of next month,
and that the United Railroads is pre
paring to resist a serious strike, if that
should be the outcome.

to the men. It is stated that it was

Calhoun, of the United Railroads, cams

The meeting of the Carmen's Union
tonight did not take any action regard-
in the contemplated demand tor

OPERATORS KEEP VP FIGHT
Telegraphers Not Satisfied With De
cision by Arbitration Board.
SAN FRANCISCO. April 1. The or-
fler ot Railway Telegraphers has filed
Jo U United States Circuit Court ex
ceptions to portions in the decision
come to by the board of arbitration
that received testimony regarding the
differences between the telegraphers
and the Southern Pacific Company as
to wages and hours
There were four points considered by
the arbitrators, and tw of these were
decided against the telegraphers. The
first was as to whether the order of
Railway Telegraphers should legislate
for the train dispatchers respecting
rates of pay, hours of service or other
wise. The arbitrators decided that
they should not. The other point de
cided against the telegraphers was the
elimination from operation of the
schedule to be adopted.
The telegraphers. In protesting
against the award respecting these two
points, claim that the testimony was
not properly taken, some being left
out that should have been admitted,
and some being taken that did not re
late to the questions under considera
tion. Judge Van Fleet will Consider the
matter and will render a decision. If
he favors the railway company the
telegraphers will have nothing to do
but submit. If the reverse, the work
done by the board of arbitration will
Miners Strike In Alberta.
HELENA. Mont., April 16. A Tribune
special from Lethbridge says 150 miners
employed by the Coal & Coke Company
of Spokane at the company mines at
Coleman, Alberta, struck today for a 10
per cent increase in pay and a semi
monthly payday. The strike is in viola
tion of the recently passed trades-dispute
law of Canada, which provides for the ar
rest and punishment of every man who
strikes without first submitting his griev
ances to a conciliation board. Other
mines will probably be affected.
ALTON ROAD TO PAY FINE
APPEAL COURT . AFFIRMS SEN
TENCE FOR REBATING.
Wheelage Charge Paid Packing
Company Mere Device to Grant
CHICAGO. April 16. The United
States Court of Appeals today affirmed
the conviction in the District Court of
the Chicago & Alton Railroad and J. M.
Falthorn and Fred A. Wann, former
officials of the road, for granting re
Ti;e company and the ') ofn.-lals
vcrc found guilty liist ysar and an
aggregate fine of $60,000 was imposed.
The railroad company was fined $40,000
and the two officials $10,000 each.
The conviction of the defendants fol
lowed the prosecution by the Govern
ment which alleged that rebates
had been" granted to SchwarzschUd &
Sulzberger in the shipment of meats.
The rebates were said to havo been
paid to t o packing onu-any under the
guise of refund of terminal charges,
the amount being $1 on each car for
the use of the tracks of the packing
company in getting the cars of freight
out from the packing houses to the
main line of the Alton road.
In its opinion, the appellate court
"Rentals upon the basis of wheelage
are objectionable if the parties have en
tered into a contract which in all other
respects Is lawful. Schwarschlld &
Sulzberger received back a part of the
money they paid the road for freight, but
this does not prove that the transaction
constituted a rebate within the definition
ot the statute. If the full rate is paid,
either in money or In money's worth, the
parties cannot be guilty of .rebating.
These considerations oompel the court
to the conclusion that the Judgment ot
the lower court cannot be sustained ex
cept by holding that the contract be
tween Schwarschlld S Sulzberger ana
the Alton road was' illegal and void.
The trouble in this case comes from
the fact that the railroad.dld not take a
lease of the tracks of the packing com
pany for the purpose of discharging its
undertakings as an interstate common
carrier. The arrangement between the
two corporations was therefore a device
whereby the produce of the packing com
pany was transported at a cost of $19 per
car while the other shippers were pay
The court excludes from the case as not
belns- within the issues the question of the
right of a railroad company to render
creator service or to lurnisn greater la-
cilities to one shipper than to another for
the same published charge, xne UBUe in
this case is the right to furnish the same
or more at a less price. . In concluding.
the court said:
The arrangement that existed between
the two companies cannot for'reasons of
public policy be based lawfully on division
of rates, or in any other way be connect
ed with, or affect the rate-making func
tion of the railroad company. The agree
ment as it existed, therefore, was illegal
and the Judgment ot the lower court must
