THE MORNING OREGOXIAX, TUESDAY. JANUARY 21, 1913. - S , i ; 1 i t J I WILSON BILLS AIM TO BREAK TRUSTS Seven Measures of Governor Introduced in Legisla ture of New Jersey. CLIMAX DEEMED REACHED Feature of Proposed Laws Is Pro vision Making Violation Misde meanor Punishable by Pine and Imprisonment. TREXTOX. N. J.. Jan. 20. President elect Wilson reached today what he considers the elimax In his programme of reform as Governor of New Jersey. Seven bills making for the most exten sive revision of the corporation laws In the history of the state were intro duced tonight in the State Legislature. "These acts are designed to put an end to trusts and monopolies under the laws of New Jersey." declared Governor Wilson In a prepared statement descrlb lngr the measures, "and I predict con fidently that they will accomplish that much-desired result." Jerwey Conditional In Mlud. Though the principle of the bills which seek to prevent monopoly, under' selling In local markets, mergers, the existence of holding companies and the Issuance of watered stock is one which the Governor emphasized repeatedly in the National campaign, be declared to night that the proposed legislation nad been drawn wtth the conditions In the State of New Jersey alone in mind. The feature of the bills that attracted most attention was the provision mak ing violations of the proposed law 4 misdemeanor, punishable by Imprison ment as well as by fines. The bills go Into extensive detail In defining trusts. monopolies and mergers. It was pointed out In the statement issued from the Governor a office, how ever, that while mergers and consoli dations are prohibited in general the proposed laws do not Intend to prevent the legitimate expansion of a business concern by the purchase of property "cognate in character." F.xtennlon la Permitted. Provision for this Is made In the sec ond of the series of bills and permits a corporation to extend lis business by the purchase of the property, Includ ing the stock of another corporation if Its business be the same, but pre vents the Issuing of watered stock In the transaction. It has nothing to do with holding companies which are oth erwise treated. It is contended. While the bills. It Is asserted, take away none of the rights of existing forporations, they do restrict these vompanies from extending their hold- inn and make them subject to the pro visions forbidding underselling, dis criminations and other monopolistic jtractices. Present companies will be affected so far as future stock issues nnd mergers are concerned. Among the larger combinations rhartered under" New Jersey laws are the United States Steel Corporation, the Standard Oil Company, the American Tobacco Company, the American Sugar itefinine Company, the International Harvester Company, the Amalgamated Copper Company, the United States Leather Company and the Kock Island Kailroad Company. The Governor held several National subject conferences In the Statehouse. Senators Newlands, of Nevada, and Chamberlain, of Oregon, told him that besides themselves they represented other Western Senators in urging for Secretary of the Interior Governor Nor rls. of Montana: Governor Hawley, of Idaho; Joseph N. Teal, of Oregon, or Kemoeratic Chairman Tallman, of Ne vada. Representatives liardwick and Bartlett, of Georgia, presented tho names of several Georgians for the Cabinet. to fear from the Attorney-General's office. To be sure, his office has been Investigating the telephone and tele graph situation, but the Attorney-General cannot tblnk we are entirely bad, for. since the investigation began, we have with his expressed approval put together Bell and opposition services in several large places where local authorities and the public have ex pressed their desire for such action. At Detroit, for instance, the opposi tion was merged after approval by and at the desire of all local and state au thorities, and with the acquiescence of the Attorney-General, and the same thing has been done in other places of almost equal Importance. "I believe that the Attorney-General has found that the public does not want two systems, and we hope that fuller appreciation of that fact will lead him to leave the question entirely with the state and interstate com merce, where the matter belongs, and where it is bound to go anyway. "Last year the Interstate Commerce Commission assumed Jurisdiction by ex rress authority of Congress over the telephone and telegraph companies. So far as Interstate business is concerned, that body, together with the State Com. missions, should be able to arrange matters satisfactorily to the company and to the public. T TWELFTH JUDICIAL SECTION APPROVED AT 3TMIXXVIILE. INQUIRY IS JNJIEW HANDS (Continued From Virat rn.) thtj American company or any of Its principal subsidiary companies. The American Telephone & Tele graph Company, either directly or throush subsidiary companies whose tock it owns, operates what Is known generally as the Bell telephone system, whfch reaches upwards of 70.000 places, distributed anions practically all the Htates of the Union, having some 4,500, 000 telephones in use and operating the principal long-distance lines be tween the states. It has an invested capital of a book; value of nearly $600, umO.000. It is also the owner of a large block of stock of the Western I'nion Telegraph Company through which It practically controls tffe op erations of the telegraph and cable lines of that corporation." Chararea Are Detailed. Outlining complaints of independents against the American company the Attorney-General says that they charge that the American company has not contented itself with the normal exten sion of its system, but has purchased competing lines in such manner and tn such circumstances as would destroy competition; that it has refused to make connections between local lines not owned or controlled by.it and its own long distance lines; and has terminated contracts and arrangements for the in. terchange of business between lines It lias acquired and lines of Independents. Complaint also is made, the Attorney General adds, that in cases where American companies have assumed to make connections with independents, they have done so in such manner as in effect to prevent a satisfactory ex-i-hange of facilities of communication, "thereby intending to discourage the patrons of the independent companies and drive .thera to the American com panies. Further, according to the Attorney General, it ischarged that the Ameri can company has discriminated between the lines of the Western Union Com pany, in which it owns an interest, and those of the Postal Telegraph Com pany. In cases where telegraph sub scribers request to be put into commun ication wUh the Postal company for the purpose of sending telegrams. In places where there Is no competition, it is charged that the local and long distance rates of the American com panies are unduly high, said the Attorney-General, while in places where Independents are established rates have been reduced.

GLENDALE IS HELD "WET" Man Who Violated Law While Town Was "Dry" Is lined $250. ROSEBCRG. Or.7Jan. 20. (Special.) In a decision handed down today Judge Hamilton sustained the validity of the liquor election held at Glendale last November when the city went "wet," and In addition he held that the repeal of the prohibition law as far as that municipality was concerned did not repeal the penalty for violations of the law committed while the town was "dry." The question of the validity of the Glendale election was raised by Dis trict Attorney Brown some time ago, when J. M. McLeod. of Glendale, was tried before Judge Hamilton on a charge of bootlegging. The District Attorney contended that the election was held in Glendale precinct and was not confined strictly to the voters of the city of Glendale. Attorney Hermann, representing Mc- LeOd, admitted the law violation, and in defense asserted that Glendale had voted "wet since the Illegal sale was made and consequently the penalty ould not be enforced. Judge Hamilton today held tnat vio lations committed prior to the time Glendale went "wet" were punishable, and as a result he fined McLeod 1250.

Several Inches of wet snow fell Thurs day and Friday, which was followed by steady rain, iards practically free from water all Winter were flooded six Inches to a foot deep. The storm sew ers could have cared for the rain, but the snow melting at the same time was too much of a strain.

The mill operated as usual and the trains were able to make the regular schedule. There was no water on the tracks outside of the yards. There is from 10 to 15 feet of snow In the Bohemia district.
