SEATTLE PAPER . ENTERS
To Prevent Passage of Resolu
; tions by Element Called Rad
' - ical, Adjournment Is Taken.
A' lonf an acrimonious debate
was precipitated In the Central Labor
-Council Thursday night over the sell'
ng in Portland of copies of a Seattle
daily labor .paper. ' A resolution was
finally carried Indorsing; all labor pa
pers rand, authorizing:, an agent to
solicit subscriptions for them.
The selllnr of the Seattle labor pa
per in Portland Is regarded by many
.-as a fliroct attack upon the weekly
- official organ of the Portland Labor
' CoundL The strictures of the radical
.. element upon Its editor and his alleged
. i conservative management of the Labor
Press were quite personal at times. .
. . The "Reds" want .more "class 1 con-
sclous,1 soviet,' revolutionary and radi
cal utterances in It, which the pres
' ent, editor and. publication board re
fuse, 1t. Is said.
To prevent the passage of resolutions
.by the radical element of the Central
r Labor Council that can easily afford to
remain up after It has "frosen out
' conservative worldngmen, ah amendment
! to the by-laws recently adopted provides
v that the Central Labor Council stands
adjourned at 10:45 p. m. unless, by a
twothlrds. vote the council decides to
remain -In session. There must be rep
"f resentatives of not less than 12 unions
: present at that time.

- Thursday night just when the "Boishe

. headway, it is said.
The Central Labor Council has In-..-.
dorsed. a mass meeting Saturday- night

At this juncture Ford volunteered
some information. r,

"However, I believe the truth should
'be told In the story In back of it
"In back of it V asked .Attorney Ste
venson. ; ,
"Well, behfnd It, then," retorted Ford.
' - Stevenson again brough. up the "Ig
norant Idealist" question when he in.
quired of Ford if -he was -an "ignorant
; idealist." r
v... "Oh, do you want me to admit that
, again? If you do I will retorted Ford.
"It's In the record." . . v
MILITARY QUESTIONS ASKED
.Attorney Lucking. Ford's counsel, ob
jected and said It was the "easiest thing
, In the , world to get an admission from
. a retiring, modest man of t the Ford
- type." He followed this with the charge
. - that Stevenson's examination - was the
."most brutal and inhuman" he had ever
T heard. -. ?
Stevenson replied that . Ford "was a
very different witness" and that he was
conducting a very copslderate" : exam-
; i nation.
After the reading of the editorial tb
:." examination swung, Into the matter - of
Ford's knowledge of military affairs.
-'Ford admitted he Whew little of military
matters. - -
- "Do you know! much about the army?"
- inquired Stevenson.
'No," answered Ford. -
"Yet you were conducting a campaign
to educate the' people relative to over-
" ON liY TAKI3TG SIDES"
'Ford then stated that his campaign
.in 191C against over-preparedness was
'.for the mere purpose of "taking sldea"
"It was for the very. purpose of stop
ping appropriations for the array that
you launched th caVnpeisn,". Stevenson
: ' said. , -. -,.s- . . - , J
"No, it wasn't." Ford answered.
. You said so yesterday' Stevenson
: charged. . : :- . ;: -
"Well. I have .said so many things,
however, I did that merely to take
'sides." Ford replied. - "
Previously Ford had been questioned
at length concerning the report sub-
mltted to the bouse committee on mul
ctary affairs in 1918 dealing with the
subject of coast defense which the de
fense charges was 'garbled and distorted

., ...... . - , -i ! ; .
It will constitute a union of Columbia
basin, and port interests unduplicated
in the- past and its importance has also
led to an i unprecedented - thing, the
presence of three of the five members
of the Interstate commerce commission
for the first time at any 'western rate
hearings.; : :i ..; . . .... ; -! :i
Although to the layman it is perfectly
obvious that transportation oa the water
level coats less than over the mountains
the petition for recognition of the Colum
bia water grade will be opposed by the
united port and business interests of
Paget Sound and will be resisted strenu-,
ousiy by the northern railroad lines, the
Northern ---Pacific, the Great Northern
and C M. A St. P." The action has been
brought primarily against' the .United
States Railroad administration and
Walker I, .Hlnes, railroad administrator.
CASE AIMED AT TJtADITIOK ' ; ,
Tradition and artificial equalisations
have built up artificially a rate struc
ture which takes no count of differences
in . cost of water level and mountain
grade transportation. The Columbia
basin rate case is aimed at 'tradition
and ; artificial ; equalisations.. Its - suc
cess would mean that not only would
every grain grower in the Inland Em
pire, receive more for his wheat, that
every shipper would pay less in f reisrht
charges and that the excess transporta
tion cost would be taken from the price
paid for all commodities by everybody
in the : Columbia basin, but also that
ports of the Columbia would be placed
at last in a position to compete without
restriction for the. business of the Co
lumbia basin. It would mean that a
new basis of ' figuring transportation
costs would be established - throughout
the country. Consequently to no rate
contest has ever been attributed greater
importance-or possible results more far
reaching than the Columbia basin rate
case. , : r a - s --. : '
