TINCHER GRAIN BILL
ALL AGES REPRESENTED BY CARRIERS
OF THE OREGONIAN IN ROSEBURG
Measure Regulating Futures
Goes to Senate.
CHICAGO TRADER ROUSED
Business of World's Greatest Ce
real Market Held Menaced
by Proposed Law.
WASHINGTON, P. C. May 14.
The Tincher bill to regulate dealings
in grain futures was passed by the
house Friday and sent to the senate.
The vote was 269 to 69.
The measure is designed to abolish
the practice In grain markets of
"puts" and "calls,' "ups" and downs"
and "indemnities" by levying a tax of
20 cents a bushel on such transac
tions. A similar tax is provided os
contracts for future delivery, made
outside of "contracts," to be desigr
rated by the secretary of agriculture,
except when the Seller is the actual
possessor of the gram.
CHICAGO. May 14. The Chicago
board of trade, the world's greatest
grain market, may withdraw from
business if the Tincher bill, to regu
late dealings in grain futures, which
was passed today by the lower house
of congress, becomes a law, Joseph P.
Griffin, president of the board, de
clared last night.
"It is my deliberate judgment that
the grain exchanges of the country
will voluntarily withdraw from busi
ness rather than submit to the Intol
erable, unfair and arbitrary features
of this bill," Mr. Griffin said. "The
exchanges do not protest regulation,
and if there be evil in their business
they have no objection to legislation
if they themselves fail to eradicate
"The Tincher bill, as originally
drafted, met with the approval of
representatives of the farmers, mill
ers, country and terminal grain deal
ers and the grain exchanges of the
"Following open hearings the sec
retary of agriculture prevailed upon
the committee to redraft the bill so
as to delegate to the secretary of ag
riculture arbitrary powers without
parallel in the history of legislation
in this country. With this bureau
cratic and undemocratic principle of
government added to the bill, it was
presented to the lower branch of
congress, and, according to press re
ports, the members of that body were
advised that the bill, as presented
had received my approval as well as
that of other interests concerned.
"If congress and other legislative
bodies are really desirous of helping
the farmer then there should be an
end to boot-strap legislation. The
responsibility for the farmers' pres
ent deplorable condition cannot be
attributed to any particular group of
men, but rather is due to a world
wide situation. Potentially there is a
demand for all the products that the
American farmer can or will produce.
but our customers are in bankruptcy
The farmers' condition will not be
alleviated or relieved until in some
way wc open up the markets of the
world for what the farmer has to sell.
"This may necessitate legislation
extending credit to European govern
ments or indemnifying American ex
porters on foreign credit transactions.
If the coming harvest the world over
should prove to be bountiful and in
the interim our government has pro
vided no means by which the farmer
can find a market for. his products.
I dread to think of the condition in
which this country will be plunged
in a purely economic sense."

- BT DICK SHARP.
Bobby Harper, clever Seattle light

Cross of New York at his own game
Friday night. Two weeks ago Leach
won in a walk from Joe Gorman and
amassed practically all of his wide
margin by his work in the clinches.
Last night this feature availed him
little, as Harper gave him cards and
spades and took Referee Ralph Gru
Cross pulled every trick of the
game he knew in an effort to stave
off defeat, but took only two rounds
of the battle, a shade in the fifth and
the tenth by a wide margin. Leach
even pulled his famous "stall," which
trapped Bud Anderson and "Knockr
out" Brown, in the sixth round of last
night's battle. However, Harper was
well wised up before the scrap and
refused to fall for Leach's reeling tac
tics. Those in the crowd who were
not onto the New Yorker's favorite
trick were treated to a grand thrill
when they glimpsed him tottering
around the squared circle on his heels
and wilting at every punch. He was
but trying to pull Harper into a faulty
lead. After drooping from corner to
corner for.. three-fourths of the round,
he gave up the "stall" and tore into

Harper fought a careful, heady

first round and did the forcing.
The fans rose to their feet in the
first Qanto when Cross went to the
canvas twice from shoyes. The last
crip to tne mat looked as thouah a
straight left sent him down, but the
fact that he was caught off his bal
ance was more the cause than the
blow. Harper showed no fear what
ever of Cross in the clinches and did
most of the telling infisrhtlnz- him

Harper outboxed Cross the ecnnd

puffed up by the adulation that has
come to him because of his eminence
In the literary world.
"Who could rise at a moment like
this and not be stirred to the depths
of his heart?" said Mr. Markham.
"It is as if one returns from a far
journey and sees again the lights of
home and the faces of his friends and
yet he has no words that can ex
press his happiness. He can only
make futile gestures to show what
is in his heart. One needs at such a

mands to know am I worthy o all
Mr. Markham gave a brief outline
of his life, his early love for poetry
and how he persisted in his devotion
to the muse, even in the face of ad
verse circumstances. Born in Oregon
City in 1852, he was taken to Cali
fornia by his parents when five
years old. He became a helper to
his mother, who, he said, was some
thing of a poet, too.
Mr. Markham attended three-month
terms of school in the winter and
rode the range on his mother's cattle
ranch in the Suisun hills. As he rode
the range he studied grammar. An
early teacher fired him with a pas
sion for poetry. It was Tennyson's
"Tears, Idle Tears," and other lyrics
of like high order that gave him his
first great love for poetry, he said.
He went home after having these
classics read to him, determined to
buy the books for himself, and he
plowed 20 acres for a neighbor for
$20 and his mother took the money
to San Francisco and returned with
the books. These poets, said Mr.
Markham, became the great inspira
tion of his life. He taught school
for 25 years, h's tirst schoolroom
being without a roof, "under a big
liveoak tree in California, where' be
had nine pupils.
"What is the mission of the poet?"
asked Mr. Markham. "Tha middle
ages knew three romantic figures,
the pilgrim, the hermit and the poet
The automobile has disposed of the
pilgrim and the railroad whistle has
wakened the hermit and brought him
out of his lonely cave. But the poet
remains throughout the world today
because he serves a great human
need. Poetry should come down into
the life of the people. It must reach
the ground. It becomes that force in
human life because it lifts us above
the animal, gives us the light that
never was on land or sea, tne laeai
and the great principle of humanity.
"In the great prose of the world
you have poetry. Prose is not the
opposite of poetry, but science is its
opposite. Man is both a thinker and
a feeler. Science cannot answer th
great cries of the heart, all the great
questions of the soul of man, but
they are answered by art in a big
way and poetry is perhaps the most
comprehensive or ail the arts. Every
thing has its halo of sentiment
beauty, wonder and mystery."
1 Anne Shannon Monroe introduced the
poet as that "clarion-voiced, youth
hearted man. Edwin Markham."
At the close of his address Mr.
Markham was presented by the toast
master with a gavel made of historic
woods and a pamphlet of reprints
