The action Is the first of the kind
to be brought since the passage of the
law of 1909 and Is the only anti-trust
campaign ever started In the state.
Conviction under the charge will
bring to the indicted men Imorlson

than one year or a fine of not more
than 11000. The Information as drawn

"The persons for whom the warrants
were Issued filed with the Secretary of
Plate on September ST. 10, articles of
incorporation for the 'Spokane Jobbers'

prosecution. "Since that time we ex
pect to prove they have operated as a
monopoly. This exchange was tha
framework of the affair. through
which their agreement was enforced
and the rules for the conduct of their
business promulgated. It would be un
wise at this time to make any state
ment as to the evidence which we In
tended to put In."
The exchange which sow appears as
the trust organisation has never been
pushed forward In the operation of the
commission houses. By means of It. It
Is alleged, fines were established for
refractory members who sold at rates
under those fixed by the combine and
.collected when such violation of the
agreement was discovered.

Buslneea territory was allotted and
It la said that a line drawn east of
Fpokane was fixed beyond which Its
members could sell at any price they
wished. The reason was that competi
tion from outside firms bad to be met
there - and consequently food prices
were greatly lowered.
Not only did tha organization control
the selling price. It Is charged, but
also It has set the price for the pro
ducer. Wherever the orchardlst or
market gardener was located, at Walla
Walla, Wcnatrhee or In Southern Ida
ho, his products were given a certain
value and no member of the combine
paid him more than the price ao named.
Deputy Prosecutor MacWllltams haa

in which the scale was operated. .

Crook County Case Goes Jo Jury.
Members of Grand Jnry Tell of
Variations In Testimony of
Slater of' Accused.
PrUNEVILLE. Or- Oct. 2T. (Spe
cial.) Following an impassioned ad
dress by Prosecuting Attorney Wilson.
In which he charged that Ernest Rob
inson and his 18-year-old sister, Ruth
Rohlnson. had gone out of their way
deliberately to murder Louis McAllis
ter, who waa shot by Robinson, the
case went to the Jury.
Judge Brads haw concluded his charge
at o'clock and at a lata hour a ver
dict had not been agreed upon. Al
though It is not believed that the testi
mony of Kuth Robinson was shaken in
any Important detail, the many friends
McAllister had In the whole of -Crook
County may, it is thought, have some
effect on members of the trial Jury.
Members of the grand Jury, which
Indicted Robinson, went upon the stand
this afternoon and told of the testi
mony Ruth had given before the In
quisitorial body. In a number of minor
details differences between her testi
mony as given before that body and
that on t.he witness stand were nar,
No Important variations were rhown.
however, and it Is generally admitted
that the girl's testimony was of the
srongest nature.
In his closing sfldress to the Jury,
Judge Bennett, of The Dalles, for the
defense, declared that Misa Robinson's
testimony exonerated her brother In
every respect. He contended that no
other motive than that or self defense
had been shown for the crime and In
stanced the Involuntary discharge of
the girl's own rifle aa indicating a be
lief on the part of the Robinsons that
McAllister waa armed. He recapitulated
tha testimony given by. young Dewey
Robinson, who asserted that ha had
heard McAllister threaten his brother.
Mr. Wilson centered his attack on
the girl. Ho said there was no doubt
but that the murder waa of the most
cold-blooded nature possible, lie said
the couple were going down tha hill
side out of their way and there could
be no question but that when they en
countered McAllister they had deter
mined to kill him. A llson pictured
the girl to the Jury as determined on
revenge for an alleged wrong done to
the Robinson dam.

Iloth Harmon and Wilson Factions
Said to Have Made Overtures
to Governor llawley.
BOISE. Idaho. Oct. 27. (Special.)
With Governor Hawley of this state,
frequently mentioned and said -to be in
a receptive mood for the nomination for
Vice-President. Senator Borah proposed
aa a successor of Chief Justice Harlan
and ex-Governor Brady flatly and em
phatically announcing that he will not
be a candidate for the Gubernatorial
nomination subject to the will of the
Republican primaries next Fall, party
leaders In Boise, both Republican and
Democratic, hjive been given something
to think about.
Governor Hawley has nothing to say
for publication relative to his possible
candidacy for Vice-Presidential honors,
but this is the wish of many of bis clos
est political advisers. It la said that
overtures have been made to Governor
Hawley by both the Judson Harmon
and Woodrow Wilson factions, for It is
known that tha chief executive of this
state has taken a friendly attitude to
both and announced he is determined
to support the choice of tha party for
President. Democratic party leaders
here say he can secure the support of
either faction of the parly, regardless
of tha fight that is being made by Slate
Chairman Nugent on Harmon, .
With the Idaho delegation to the Na
tional Convention pledged for Hawley
for Vice-President It Is asserted here
that his boom tor that office can be
made a winner, receiving the solid
backing of tha Western "Hates. This, It
Is asserted, will ba sufficient to make
the nomination possible. Governor
Hawley Is saying little about th boom
that la being launched In bis behalf, but
It la said here that he would not de
cline the nomination.
The close friends of Senator Borah
are said to be using hla name In con
nection with the Judgeship, although
they admit, could he be appointed, bis
loss to the state and the Senate, where
he haa become a National figure, would
be severe.
Republican party leaders no longer
consider Senator Borah a stats figure,
for hla prominence In the Senate haa
been made National. Like Oovernor
Hawley, Senator Borah has been men
tioned aa a Vice-Presidential possibil
ity, although ha refuses to take the
matter seriously and declares that he
baa no auch aspiration. He is as eva
sive over the mention of hla name" in
connection with the Judgeship. That
he wishes to remain In the Senate to
accomplish and acquire legislation ha
set out to place on the statute books
when ha first took office. I known to
be true. Two of his measures are the
Income tax and the election of Senators
by direct vote of tha people. Despite
tha grooming of hla ardent friends for
the Judgeship, Senator Borah will prob
ably remain in the Senate.
Ex-Governor Brady has announced
emphatically through Ms friends that
he Is not a candidate for Governor, nor
will ha permit his same to be used In

investment. If you're' tired of conven

166-170 THIRD ST.-,
that connection at the direct primaries.
The announcement came through Attorney-General
McDougall of this state,
who was authorize by Mr. Brady.
The name of ex-Governor Brady has
been associated with a candidacy , for
Representative, now that a second seat
in the lower bouse has been granted to
this state, Jut whether or not he will
become a candidate Is not known by
his friends here at this time. .
Farmers of Klickitat TJse Open
River Transportation.
GOLDENDALE, Wash.. Oct. 2T. For
the first time In seven years, Klickitat
farmers have hauled a portion of their
grain over the Columbia Mountain for
shipment by the Open River Transpor
tation Company. Twenty thousand
sacks of wheat have been deUvered on
the beach at Cdlumbv.s. Tha movement
was started by the refusal of the S.,
P. & 8. to grant a reduction of 1 cent
a bushel in the freight rate on grain
shipped from- points In the Klickitat
Valley. Wheat delivered at the river
sells for 4 cents a bushel more than Is
paid at the warehouses along the line
of the Goldendale branch of the road.
The grain crop In the Klickitat Val
ley this year was the best that has
been harvested for several seasons,
soma fields of Fall grain yielding as
high aa 65 bushels an acre. Growers
have not been disposed to sell at prices
offered, and It is esttmated by ware
housemen that about two-thirds of the
crop Is still In the hands of the farm
ers. Prices quoted are: Fortyfold, 70
cents; club, 68 cents. Fall wheat, sown
before the heavy rains In September. Is
looking fine.
