Common Basis Demanded.
On the stand for Everett were A. B.
- Te.-in, engineer for both the city and
" port commission, and H. T. Fowler,
I wholesale grocer. Tacoma had only
two witnesses, F) J. .Walsh, engineer
". for the port of Tacoma, and D. D. A.
t Outca!t, trustee of the Tacoma commer-
- cial club. The city of Seattle adopted
. the testimony of other intervenors and
presented no witnesses.
There was a constant agitation at
; every common point in eastern Wash
. ington to reach Portland and si. and
1 markets on at common basis until the
parity of rates was made effective,"
. ai'i .Mr. Lawrence. "Those conditions
; would recur if the party was to be
disturbed. There has been no contro
versy since the equal rates were estab
lished." A rate parity is an advantage in the
' development of communities, Mr. Cor
. baley declared. The first problem of
' a city In any section of the country,
he said, was to provide markets' par
ticularly for Its manufacturers.
DiNtnrbanve la Opposed.
"Seattle is only at the real beginning
' of its industrial development," said Mr.
Corbaloy. "We do not want to disturb
' our whole distributing fabric. The cit
ies in the northwest will not amount
to anything unless the country is de
' veloped."
Mr. Corbaley said the total value of
". Seattle's more than 1200 manufactur-
ing institutions was approximately
$100,000,000. those of Tacoma about
"one-third of that amount and those of
". Portland about one-half. There are
.nearly 2000 manufacturing institutions
'.on l'uget sound, Mr. Corbalev said. H
placed Seattle's annual sale of .manu
factured products at between $100,000
' ot'O and $125,000,000 and Portland's be
tween $50,000,000 and $60,000,000.
.Mr. Ooldsmith said credit and trade
relations between the coast and interior
would be broken down by a disturbance
of the present equal freight rates. Hall
way rates determine, he said, where
the business shall go, and that it was
an advantage to merchants to buy in
.as many markets as possible on the
tame basis.
Koreljtn Trade Volumes Compared.
The testimony of Mr. France was in
troduced to show the volume of. Seat
ties foreign trade compared with that
of Portland and to show that - while
.wheat was the principal commodity
exported from Portland on the sound It
was only an incidental item in world
trade. Mr. Nicholson told of the mam-
-moth port facilities which have been
.constructed in Seattle to aid shipping.

Ukrainians Reject German Offers
and ' M ill Buy Goods in
United States.
VIENNA, Aug. 1. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The Poles announce a
continuance of their victorious march
against the Ukrainians. They are
crossing the Zbruca river at various
points. (It should be noted that the
Poles were given authority by the
peace conference to proceed- only to
the Zbruca.) The Polish army objec
tive is, -said to be Kamenetz, Podolia,
which is the capital of General Simon
Petlura, Ukrainian leader.
The Ukrainians recently resumed
diplomtic relations with Roumania,
having" previously sent missions to
Italy, Switzerland, -Germany and Aus
tria, and are said to be seeking to
establish one in the United States.
They declare that they, like the
Serbs, will continue to fight indefinitely
for their independence.
Regarding Polish charges that the
Ukrainians are favoring German com
mercialization of Russia, M. Stepano-
kov. director of the co-operative, land
banks maintained by 14,000,000 farmers
with headquarters formerly at Kiev,
said :
"The country above all we wish to
do business with is America. It is true
that at present French politics is driv
ing us into the arms of the Germans,
but w'e realize that the Germans would
attempt to exploit us and also that
they haveno resources.
"Recently the Germans offered us a
very big loan and also unlimited sup
plies, but we rejected the offers as we
felt acceptance would mean the ruin
of our prospects in the United States.
We are willing now to. buy clothing
and machinery, and have 12,000,000,000
rubles with which to pay." .

LONDON," Aug. 2. (Special Cable.)
"The lightning strike" of the police In
Liverpool was -seized upon by violent
crowds, largely composed of hooligans,
to wreck and plunder shops. The few
Liverpool policemen who remained loyal
charged with their, batons and num
bers of people were caught in various
shops and. received severe punishment.
In the whole of Scotland road scarcely
a' shop was left intact. Windows were
broken and all the contents were car
ried away. One jewelry . establishment
was ransacked from top to bottom,
boot shops were entirely cleared of
their stocks. Scarcely any of the real
strikers were involved in the rioting.
At an early hour today the military
was summoned to suppress the rioting
as only some 50 policemen remained on
duty. It is understood here that never
in the history of Liverpool have its
principal thoroughfares presented such
scenes of wreck as at the present

last night. But as soon as the news
that the strike was called off spread,
there was-an outbreak of looting by
hooligans in the old Kent road district.
A number of shops were entered and

In the city of London force only
very few men were affected and it was
reported that the policemen through

VANCOUVER. Wash., Aug. 2. (Spe

county property for the current year,
just completed by County Assessor
John F. Eddings. shows a decreased
land value from that of the year end
ing in 1918. The country districts' de
crease is about $21,000, but the total,
including improvements, shows an in
crease of about $100,000.
Assessor Eddings explains the de
crease in land values by reason of the
