DO NOT MUD M
ADVANCE IN RATES
Two Witnesses Offer Testi
mony Damaging to Cause
.of the Lumbermen.
MILLION IN FIVE YEARS
Johan Poulsen Testifies as to His
Company's Profits Will Not Ad
mit Any .Favoritism in Being
Furnished Cars by Roads.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 17.-That "his com
pany has made 11.000.000 In the past Ave
years was the testimony of Johan Poul
sen, of the Inman-Poulsen Lumber Com
pany, of Portland, at the hearing of the
Pacific Coast lumber-rate question be
fore the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion today. Mr. Poulsen Is one of the de
fendants and started out by making this
statement when called to the stand.
He gave the average cost of production
as $12.50 per thousand feet and the selling
price as J16.50. but had not made that
margaln of profit at all times. He gave
some details about the business of hia
mill, stating that propably a quarter of
its output was exported, and only about
JO per cent shipped by rail.
Does Not Mind Advance in Rates.
He said the advance in rates would not
cause any serious hardship, as with only
10 per cent of the output going by rail,
that would mean an average of 27 cents
per lOnO'feet on the entire output, which
could be distributed among loggers, mill
men and yardmen, costing each only 9
cents per 1000 feet.
He was cross-examined by J. N. Teal
for the lumbermen, who asked him about
his relationship to other mill men in
Portland. Poulsen said he belonged to
no association of that kind. Questioned
about his attitude during the strike last
Spring, he said he had decided not to
give an advance in wages because he saw
hard times coming and did not want to
help create a wrong situation. He de
clared that he had always been with
worlcingmen and had not reduced wages
and did not propose to do so if he could
Ex-Governor Clough Testifies.
Ex-Governor D. M. Clough, of Minne
sota, now connected with the Clark Nlck
erson Lumber Company, of Everett,
"Wash., was also a witness for the de
fendants. Ex-Governor Clough testified
that his company had made more than
$500,000 during Jhe pa3t five years in the
purchase, cutting and shipping of lum
ber. On cross-examination he said that
on common lumber shipped to San Fran
cisco Bay points his company had made
no money. Its profits being made on the
high grades of lumber produced and
shipped by rail.
It was his belief that most of the large
lumber companies could produce lumber
and market It at the advanced rates fixed
by the railroads at a fair profit.
Pressed by attorneys for the complain
ants, ex-Governor Clough admitted that
while other companies were complaining
of a lack of cara for the handling of their
products, his company had not been em
barrassed in that way. He did not ad
mit that this was due to ny peculiarly
close relations with the railroad compa
nies which his company enjoyed.
Will Not Admit Being Favored.
Effort was made to connect operations
of his mill with James J. Hill or with
Interests controlling the Great Northern,
but Clough dented close relation with
Hill and did not know about' the connec
tion of D. M. Robbins, of St. Paul, the
principal stockholder in his mill, with the
Counsel for the lumbermen tried to get
admissions from Clough and Poulsen
that they had been favored in car dis
tribution by roads they did business with,
but they were not advised as to what
other mills were getting- in the way of
car supply. Clough said he piled lumber
up in his yards and PoulBen said he ex
ported his lumber when he could not get
any other outlet.
Advances in Price of Logs.
Johan Poulsen, a sawmill operator at
Portland! Or., testified today that there
had been an advance in the price of
logs of from t6 to $12 In the past two
years. This advance, he explained, was
due in part, at least, to the San Fran
cisco earthquake and fire, which created
an immense demand for lumber. The log
ging associations, he said. Increased the
price of logs at almost every meeting.
interesting testimony was given at the
afternoon hearing by Mr. Millard, a lum
ber operator In Louisiana, In the yellow
pine district. He said that while the ad
vance In rates on the lumber from the
North Pacific States would benefit the
yellow pine lumber manufacturers, it
would tend to equalize the rates from
the two districts, as four or five years
ago the yellow pine people were subjected
to an advance from 1 cent to 5 cents a
hundred pounds. He explained that the
yellow pine manufacturers came into
competition with the Pacific Coast lum
ber as far west as Denver. He was In
clined to the view that the rates as fixed
by the advance would fairly equalize the
rate situation between the yellow pine
manufacturers and the North Pacific
Coast manufacturers of lumber.
BOYCOTT GETS BODY BLOW
(Continued From First Page.)
criminati'e treatment against organ
ised labor. President V,ancleve, of the
Rtove company, it was charged, die
charged as an employe the president of
a St. Louis local union and threatened
to discharge all other members of the
union committee of employes that
sought to deal with him.
The court held that the contention
of the defense, . that there cannot be
unlawful combination where each
member thereof might do individually
the thing contemplated without respon
sibility to the law, has much of plaus
ibility and "seems to evade accurate
Judge Gould cited authorities, how
ever, to show that a combination .of
two or more persons with such an in
tent and under such circumstances that
Rive thorn, when so combined, a power
to do an Injury they would not possess
as individuals acting jointly, has al
ways been recognized as In Itself
wrongful and illegal.
Judge Gi'uld also handed down two
opinions granting permanent Injunctions
In the case of Bender against the Bakers
and Confectioners' Union and Lawton
against the International Carriage and
Wagon Workers, two local cases which
the court decided- along the same lines as
the Buck stove case.
Decision Is Far-Reaching.
James H. Beck, of New""York, ex
Assistant Attorney-General who,-with
Daniel Davenport, of Bridgeport. Conn.,
and J. J. Darlington, of this city, who
represented the Buck company,. said:
"While the decision contains no n.w de
parture in legal principles and simply fol
lows the weight of authority in both the
Stat and Federal Court, the case la of far
reaching effect as the first case where the
American Federation of Iabor, as a body, has
been enjoined from using lis chief weapon of
offense and defense, the boycott.
For years the manufacturers throughout
the country have feared the 'formidable black
list of the Federation with Its membership
of nearly two million . men. and many of
them, in some .cases, whole Industrie have
yielded to the demands of the Federation.
Previous Injunction suits to prevent these
widespread boycotts have been brought
against local and state labor organizations,
with remedial result which were purely
local. In this case the Injunctions are
granted against the officers and Executive
Council, by whose orders boycotts are de
clared and prosecuted.' Such boycotts, are
now declared unlawful in the District of
Columbia, where the headquarters of the
Federation are. While the court did not pass
on the application of the Sherman Anti-Trust
Law to the plaintiffs interstate trade, yet this
omission is of minor - importance, as that
point will soon be passed upon by the Bu
preme Court of the United States in a case
which recently advanced for argument and
argued. , ,
J. H. Ralston, of counsel for the Fed
eration, said tonight that he had no
opinion to express regarding the decision;
the injunction was a temporary one and
that, in so far as the Sherman law or
the Interstate commerec law, which ques
tion had been raised In the proceedings,
was concerned, he regarded the decision
as affecting that phase of the case a vic
tory for the defense.

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 17. (Special.)
Colonel J. W. Duncan, chief of staff, has
been very busy this last week accumu
lating mkps of all the different sections
of California, where It might be advisable
to hold maneuvers early during the com

maneuvers at American Lake, Washing

Columbia could utilize American Lake
the troops of this department must have
their maneuvers in this state.

that, if he should hereafter decide to be

SUIT 10 ANNUL ELECTION
Seaside Resident Would ' Restrain
Councllmen From TakiTig Seats.
ASTORIA, Or..' Dec. 17. (Special.) A
suit was filed In the Circuit Court this
afternoon by A. E. Miller aerainst W.
E. Burke, Recorder of Seaside, and H. C.
Anderson and E. S. Henningrer, to prevent
the latter two-named defendants from as
suming offices to which they were re
cently elected. The complaint asserts
that the plaintiff 1b a resident and tax
payer at Seaside; that Defendant Burke
Is Recorder of Seaside, and that at the
municipal election held on December 11
defendants Henninger and Anderson re
ceived the highest number of votes cast
for the offices 'of treasurer and council
man from the Second Ward, respectively.
Continuing, the complaint alleges that
neither Henninger nor Apderaon is a tax
payer In Seaside, and under the charter
of the town are not qualified to hold of
fice; that these two defendants, as well
as the Mayor of t;.j town, are employes
of the Seaside Mill Company and formed
a combination to defeat certain amend
ments to the city charter; that the said
mill company uses a large quantity of
water, rendering It impossible, to supply
the town and lt inhabitants with vater
during the Summer season and thus cut
ting off the revenues of the town. The
complaint further allege that by a con-'
tinuance of such acts Seaside and Ihe
plaintiff In this suit will suffer irrepar
able loss and subject their property to
danger of loss, by fire, and that if Ander
son is allowed to qualify as a Council
man his actions In the Council will be il
legal and the town will thus not be abie
to carry on Its business. It asks that
Defendant W. E. Burke be restrained
from issuing a certificate of election to
either Henninger or Anderson, until the
further order of the court. The petition
for a temporary injunction will be ar
gued before County Judge Trenchard to
morrow. . .
Receiver Tor Glendale Bank.
ROSEBURG, Or., Dec. 17. (Special.)
R. A. Jones and E. E. Redfleld today
petitioned that Judee Hamilton appoint
a receiver for the State Bank at Glen
dale, which avoided a run yesterday by
failing to open Its doors.
J. L. WInchell was at once appointed
and his bonds fixed at 20.000. By all
conversant with the facts there is hut
one opinion and that is that the bank
was fully solvent and ahle to pay dollar
for dollars of all its liabilities, but evil
minded persons put into circulation false
reports, caused by a failure of one or
more milling concerns, all ot which pre
cipitated an uncalled for run, resulting
In suspension.. The' depositors will now
be forced to await the slow process of
a settlement In tha courts.
