' Deputy Disagrees With Order
That All Vessels Must Be
Completely Manned.
Company Paying- as nigh as tlOO a
Month for Coastwise Operators
and $75 on Trans-Paclflc (
to Meet Inroads.
FAN FRANCISCO. May 1. (Special.)
The strike of the Pacific Coast wire
less operators Is spreading, and If Col
lator of the Port Stratton enforces his
recent ruling- the shipping of this port
may be seriously affected. The Col
lector said a few days ago that clear
ance would be denied to ships leaving
Ban Francisco without the required
number of operators aboard.
There Is some difference of opinion
In the customs service, as Special Dep
uty Collector Hamilton dlsasrrees with
the Collector and says that In the
rent of the physical Impossibility of
a ship securing a second operator ne
will recommend to the department the
remission of the usual fine for this
breach of the recent wireless act. Chief
Radio Operator Wolrerton was closeted
with Mr. Glnman, of the Marconi com
pany, this morning and Hamilton's
stand Is believed to be a result of this

to accommodate the departing steam

and J75 for trans-Pacific operators.

lowing resume of the wireless strike
"This morning there were 113 oper

to fill vacancies on various vessels had
quit work. Thirty men were out at Se

Strike leaders say that steamers

several Western Democratio Senators
and a loss of four Democratio Sena
tors will give control of the Senate to
the Republicans.
IVtlaoa Does Not A are.
The President said plainly he did not
agree with the view expressed by ths
Senators that free wool, sugar, lum
ber, etc would hurt Western Indus
tries. He held it would rather stimu
late trade. .As for the political effect
of the Underwood bill, he said that
If these Senators would vote for, the
bill as it is Indorsed by the Adminis
tration they would strengthen" rather
than weaken themselves at home, and
he believed the passage of the Under
wood bill would Increase the Demo
cratic membership of the next Senate.
So firm was the President In voicing
his view that his callers abandoned all
hope of removing wool, sugar or lum
ber from the free list. They privately
concede that the Administration pro
gramme will go through.
House, However, Refuses Further
Reduction on Cattle.
WASHINGTON. May 1 All efforts of
the opposition to disturb the "market
basket" reduction In the Democratic
tariff bill failed in the House today,
drjplte the fact that Republican orators
sounded warnings of ruined Industries,
enforce! Idleness and empty cupboards
to follow the enactment of the Under
wood bill.
Stilt championing the bill an the
greatest that ever has been written for
the benefit of the people of the country,
the Democrats were deaf to the pleas
of representatives of the beet and cane
sugar constituencies against free sugar
In three years; unmoved by the charge
that they legislated Into the hands of
the beef trust by placing duties on
livestock while free listing their prod
ucts: determined to rush the passage
of the bill at the earliest possible mo
ment. Fre Livestock Predicted.
Representative Kinkead, a New
Jersey Democrat, uttered a prediction
that the Senate would strike out the
ways and means committee's 10 per
cent rates on livestock.
When Representative Sloan, of Ne
braska, introduced an amendment to
Increase the rate on cattle from 10 to
15 per cent, after a 25 per cent amend
ment by Representative Fordney, of
Michigan, had been rejected. Mr. Kin
kead declared that he believed the ways
and means committee had kept the
platform pledge to the people when It
had reduced livestock rates to 10 per
cent, but he felt that the committee
should have placed livestock on the
free list along with meats.
All Anridmtita Rejected.
- "I believe and hope," said Mr. Kin
kead. "that when It comes back to us
from the Senate the duty will be cut
off and that every Democrat on this
floor will support it." . -
This aroused prolonged applause
from the Republicans.
The agricultural schedule precipi
tated long discussion, though Mr.
Underwood held It down with frequent
motions to cut off debate on successive
paragraphs. Amendments were offered
to Increase the rates on cattle, sheep,
hogs, on wheat, oats and other grains
snd nearly every other Item in the bill,
but all were rejected.
Louisiana Aditsed t Change.
Representative Hardwlck. closing the
sugar schedule debate, declared that
the American sugar Industry was a
hothouse Industry."
Averring that under any clrcum-
... f
stances the can sugar Industry of
Louisiana could not possibly survive a
dozen years, Mr. Hardwlck urged the
Louisiana people to abandon sugar
growing and plant other crops on their
rich rolls. In Louisiana the cost of
producing sugar, he argued, was 3
cents a pound, nearly double the cost
of production In Cuba. Porto Klco ana
Hawaii: while the Phliippines. he
asserted, when modern machinery
procured and better transportation ef
fected, can produce all the sugar for
the whole world at a lower price than
it Is furnished today.
Delegate Kalanlanaole. representing
Hawaii, took advantage of his privi
lege of debate to oppose the proposed
UBr rates.
"When we came Mnto the United
States." he said, "the treaty by which
we were annexed promised us the same
prosperity we had enjoyed as an Inde
pendent nation. Now you propose to
cut the throat of Hawaii so far as the
sugar industry Is concerned."
Mr. Kalanlanaole declared the bill
would drive American labor" from the
Islands and turn Hawaii Into the hands
of the Asiatics.
' Repnbllcau Will Not OcUy.
Tonight there were Indications that
Republican leaders would not under
take to delay the passage of the bill
much longer. Representative Moore, of
Pennsylvania, who has been active In
offering minority amendments, voiced
this view. He said the Republicans
would not attempt to filibuster, and
that they had been "hammering away
t the Underwood bill for four days
without making a single dent in It."
The fact that many who contend
their business Is affected are asking
the Republicans to hasten matters In
order that they may "readjust their
affairs." Is said to be partly responsible
for the minority attitude.
Among other rejected amendments to
tha agricultural schedule ware: By
Representative Kent, of California, to
put cattle on tha free list; Willis of
Ohio, sheep from 10 per cent to fl a
head: Woods of Iowa, meat from tree
list to 25 per cent: Sloan, Nebraska.

NEW YORK. May 1. The railroads
of the Eastern territory, having dis
cussed the freight rate problem, have
decided to ask the Interstate Commerce
Commission to allow a 6 per cent In
crease on freight of all character.
President Wlllard. of the Baltimore
& Ohio, made known this decision to
day in his capacity aa the head of a
committee of railway presidents rep
resenting the principal lines in wnat
s known as the official classification
territory, that is, the district lying east
of Chicago and north of the Ohio Klver.
For some time there has been talk
of a movement looking to Increase of
freight rates, but today's statement Is
the first comtng from the roads. Brief
ly, the request to the Interstate Com
merce Commission will be made in the
form of an application to reopen the
Eastern advance rate case, heard and
passed upon by the Commission in
General Advance Thought Best.
"When the matter of an Increase in
rates of freight was considered three
years ago," says Mr. Wlllard's state
ment. "It was proposed by the rail
roads to Increase generally the so
called class rates and some of the com
modity rates. It was urged at the time
by those opposed to the suggestion ad
vances that a fairer and better way
ho obtain an increase. If necessary,
would be by a small advance on all
rates Instead of the larger advance, as
was proposed, of some of the rates.
and It has been clearly brought out
during recent years, and particularly
in the numerous complaints filed with
the Interstate Commerce Commission,
that the relation of rates between lo
calities Is of much greater Import
ance to the shipping public than tne
actual rate per se.
"With this in mind, the carriers now
hope to obtain the consent of the Com
mission for an advance of 5 per cent
on freight of all character, and it Is
believed that such an advance. If grant
ed, will create little if any disturb
ance In commercial conditions.
Added Revenue Required.
'The railway executives feel that
the changed -conditions which have
come about have so narrowed the mar
gin between Income and outgo that a
10 per. cent Increase of all freight tar
iffs would bo Justified. They recog
nize, however, the importance of ob
taining the necessary revenue in such
a wav as to cause the least possible
disturbance of commercial conditions
and on that account feel that It would
be better to ask for an Increase of
only S per cent at this time. Unless
tha carriers are enabled to increase
their revenue in some manner, and the
plan proposed seems likely to meet
with less opposition than any other,
their ability already limited to pro
vide such additional equipment and
facilities as will be necessary to take
care of the growing demands of the
country will be seriously Impaired."
Mr. Willard and Presidents ttea, oi
the Pennsylvania, and Brown, of the
Xsw York Central, have been appointed
a committee to take up the question
with tha Commission.
Move Expected by Officials.
WASHINGTON. May 1. The Inter
state Commerce Commission for several
months has expected that the rsroaos
of the country, particularly those In
Eastern territory, eventually would ap
ply for permission to advance freight
rates. Since the popularly called "ad
vance rate cases" were decided by the
Commission against the railroads, con
siderable Increases in general operating
expenses are said to have occurred by
reason of the increased demands or
railroad labor and the Increased cost
of supplies.
Hobson Would Provide for Juvenile
Cases in Federal Jurisdiction.
WASHINGTON. May 1. "The pa
rental court of the United States," Is
proposed in a bill Introduced today by
Representative Hobson. providing that
the Judges of the United States Dis
trict Courts shall exercise the Jurisdic
tion of such a court, except In the Dis
trict of Columbia, where the President
would appoint a parental Judge.
The court would have Jurisdiction
over all children 16 years old or less In
all cases relative to violation of Fed
eral statutes; to supply special parental
care, protection and education for all
children; to keep children from any
court of record; from committment to
any Institution for punishment and to
Ox absolute responsibility for all per
sons who assume any parental author
ity over children.

Impossible to go Republican because it
could not tell which kind of Republican

Things, Not Persons, Issue.
"There were certain things which we
want done, the country said, not certain
persons elevated. There were certain
things which wa want demonstrated,
such as that the Government of the
United States cannot be controlled by
private Interests. Now the Democratic
party Is going to have a try at making
these things successful, and If not,
we're going to have another try."
The President applied his reference
to the National election to the state
situation. Indicating that if the Demo
cratic party in the state did not redeem
Its pledges including Jury reform, the
people might try another political party
In the next election.
Mr. Wilson declared that when the
Democratic party In New Jersey 'three
years ago had coma into power every
body wondered "If the old gang would

The speaker aald that when he was

the matter full consideration.
'Then he spoke about Japan and the

that it was not our purpose to change

highest price of the season.

Although wheat Is high and may go

MONROE, Or., May 1. (Special.)
This idea that
$25 is a good
price to pay for a
suit of clothes
seems to have struck a re
sponsive chord in the
minds of a lot of men.
Many of you realize that
you have been too careless
about clothes buying;
you've spent your money
for results you didn't really
There's no reason why you
shouldn't buy your clothes
just as you do other things;
with the same demand for
a value-equivalent for your
money. If you demand
goods at the lowest pos
sible price, you must expect
to get the lowest possible
value. The importance of
paying a little more lies in
the more you get in looks
and durability.
If men were more care
ful on this price point,
they'd get better returns
for their money. We
suggest $2$ for a suit as
a good place to start
your reform.
