missioner Franklin K. Lane of the In
terstate commerce commission finished
the hearing of testimony yesterday aft
ernoon. The shippers of Medford and other
interests opposed to the exemption of
the- railroad under the fourth section
Of the interstate commerce act, will be
allowed 80 ' days' additional time in
which to file briefs. The commission
will later fix a date for oral argument
In Washington upon tha questions In
volved. Terminal Bates.
If Medford and qther Interior cities
win, the roads will be required in effect
to grant terminal rates to the entire
Willamette valley territory, wiping out
the local distributive rate, which is
now added to the water rate from San
Francisco through, Portland. This, It Is
argued, would force the railroad to aban
don the field as a competitor for the
coast freight trade.
Commissioner Lane yesterday also
heard the complaints of Kerr, Oifford
& Co. and the Balfour, Guthrie com
pany concerning the shipment of grain
In bulk. They assert the present rate
of J J per car as an allowance for coop
erage and repairs in fitting' cars for
handling wheat is insufficient, and ask
for a rule requiring either that the
cars be furnished in first class condi
tion or the shippers be allowed 14.15
per car for putting them in shape.
, J. N. Teal, representing me complain
ants, presented testimony to show that
S2 is too little to be allowed as a max
imum, pointing out tht shippers in the
Missouri valley are allowed 13.80 as a
maximum figure.
Higher Maximums.
It was also shown that shipments of
many cars In bulk to the east Is made
each year, although this business Is
small In comparison with the move
ment to Portland and the sound in
Assistant General Manager M. J.
Buckley and other witnesses for the
railroad said the bulk shipment has
been small since 1904 and the railroad
ddes the best it can in furnishing good
cars, placing grain doors and repair
material at convenient points for the
use of shippers when needed. He ob
jected to allowance of a higher maxi
mum because It tends to take the mat
ter out of the control of the railroad
and there would be no way for the com
pany to check up on the sums claimed
to have been expended for cooperage.

the martyred president and now head
of. the Pullman Palace Car company,
has written from Chicago thanklpg Dr.
Thomas Grosvenor of this city. The
letter reads as follows :
"I thank you very much -for your
kindness In sending me the photograph
of Lincoln Rock on the Columbia river.
The cliff formation certainly makes a
most remarkable profile In which a
strong resemblance to that of my f&ther
can be seen without much stretch of

standing, he has a fine personality,
straight in his reasoning In all thingB,
and is the best man for the position
he fills," continued the Jurist. "The
site for the exposition was selected with
ease' as soon as Mr. Moore took charge
of affairs, and the plans for the fair
have been outlined and everything is
running smoothly.
"A system of boulevards running
from the waterfront past Telegraph hill,
and the Presidio, past Lincoln and Gold
en Gate Park and the ocean will be
made permanent, as well as will a
beautiful art gallery, an auditorium for
the handling of large conventions and a
civic center on Van Ness avenue and
Market street. These latter institutions
were planned under James D. Phelan's
administration before the fire and D.
H. Burnham, the Chicago architect, has
already designed the buildings. James
D. Phelan is president of the Improve
ment society that has the proposed In
stitutions in charge.
"This fair la not a San Francisco
exposition," said Judge Lawlor. "It Is
entirely a Pacific coast institution and
every section will be benefited. It
is as much Oregon's fair as it is Cali
fornia's. We are all working together.
and this exposition will develop this
great empire to a greater extent than
was ever dreamed of."
Will Follow Oregon.
Judge Lawlor says California will
follow In the footsteps of Oregon In the
matter of legislation; that this fall s
Bpeclal election will, be held and that
at that time it - is very probable that
the initiative and referendum and the
recall will be added to the state's con
stitution. "A year ago," said Judge Lawlor, "I
was of the belief that the recall should
not be applied to the judiciary. I over
looked the fact that there must be
judges who are subservient and com
placent. I believe that mistakes will
be made and that good men may be
recalled, but the good that the recall
will do will be the elimination of the
other kind, will more than offset the
damage done by the recalling of the
good men. As a matter of fact a man
should be willing to offer himself as
a sacrifice if good may be done."
Judge. Lawlor la on his way to his
old home In New York, where he will
spend six weeks. He will go by the
way of the Canadian Pacific and will
return to San Francisco by the South

. "Tha exposition must ba mora than
a commemoration of that monumental
achievement, the completion of the Pan
ama canal. 'It must ba an Introduction

tha orient through tha medium of our
own country.
"Boot Veglaot Art."
. "There should be a body of water in
tha exposition grounds to represent the
Paelf la Then the exhibits of the coun
tries should be ranged In their order.
"In other times w have spent mil
lions in mass, neglecting art . Let that
not be done again. Let us exhibit the
beat of each country. Let us make
each exhibit truly representative rather
than extravagant.
"Such an exposition will be original.
It will be famous the world around. It
will be something to compel attendance
from tne furthermost quarters or the
earth. Since the Belgium fire and de
struction I do not think European coun
tries will come with great exhibits, but
I am sure they will respond both with
Interests and exhibits to such a plan."

eight months in Washington, unless h
is traveling. A. long time ago he says
he commenced life washing the rolls

Delegates From Many States
of Union Meet in Okla
homa City.
Shawnee, kla.. Sept 5. A national
convention for farmers unparalleled,
probably In Importance, undoubtedly in
attendance. In the history of America,
assembled in Shawnee today tor a ihree
days' session. The occasion Is the an
nual convention of the National Far
mers' union, the largest, most influ
ential and most successful organisation
of its kind that ever existed in this coun
try, not excepting . the Farmers' Alli
ance which made Itself felt in national
politics several decades ago.
The present convention Is attended by
delegates representing a membership of
over 2.000,000, scattered over more than
half the states of the union. Whll'i the
south and the west are the best rep
resented numerically there Is abundant
evidence to show that the organization
Is steadily making headway among the
farmers of other sections of the country.
The National Farmers' union, though
not primarily a political organization,
has never hesitated to make its in
fluence felt In national or state politics
where the Interests of the farmers were
believed to be at stake. Consqumtly,
and In view of the approaching presi
dential and congressional elections, the
discussions and addresses of the three
days' sessions will be watched care
fully by the politicians.
The proposed reciprocity agreement
with Canada will naturally receive at
tention from the convention, as will also
such subjects of general Interest as the
parcels post, the restriction of foreign
Immigration, and the abolition of gam
bling In farm products. Much atten
tion will be given also to plans for in
creasing the membership and influence
of the organisation.

of political trickery was brought to

of the four Judges who' decided for a
new trial for Ruef, the court vacated the
order for a new hearing and the Judg
ment of the supreme court, over which
Judge Lawlor presided, became final.
Recall Question.
"The action of those four Judges,"
said Judge Lawlor, "Immediately turned
the tide of . the question of the recall
of the Judiciary In favor of the recall.
That was the first body blow in favor
of the recall for the Judiciary."
The pur'glng of San Francisco of
graft in its most malignant form has
developed" a wonderful moral situation,
according to Judge Lawlor. He cites
as an illustration the gas and electric
company, of which John A. Brltton is
manager and president, has already
lowered Its rates and has promised an-
.other reduction to take effect within a
short time.
The Spring Valley Water" company
has also taken a change of heart, and
was successful In trapping an assessor"
at Oakland. This shows, said Judge
Law'or, that even the corporations of
California are beginning to see that the
straight path Js the best one to travel.
With the election of Charles C. Moore
is, president of the Panama-Paciflo ex-
. position, all the little troubles have
been settled and nothing but harmony
prevails, said" Judge Lawlor. He be
lieves now that the exposition will be,
made greater and- better than was even
lontemplated In the beginning.
