COURT UPHOLDS RULE v

rhe- Court of Appeals denied yesterday the
motion made on behalf of Lindley M. Garrison,
Receiver of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit com-
argument conccrmnir the rijrht of
Service Commission to permit the
raise the Tire on its surfacejmes to
eight cents. , The decision of the court that the'
Commission5 has no jurisdiction over the fare
when the fare is stated, in teh franchises stands.
Corporation Counsel John P. O'Brien said
last night that the decision, of the Court of
Appeals gave pleasure; to the Mayor.
'It .means," he said! "that the highest. Court
in the state, has adhered1 to; its decision of last
July,rln which it followed the ruling, made, in the
-famous Quinby case in April, 1918, where it
held that the Public Service Commissions are
without power to override , the five-cent fare
ated by a city in granting a franchise."-

STANFIELD'S OWN STATEMENT
Portland, Oregon, October 28, 1920.
To the Editor:
My attention has been called to certain adver
tisements and articles in your paper in which it is
alleged that I am a partner of Swift & Company
and of Mr. L. F. Swift, in various livestock and
business enterprises. This allegation is untrue for
I am not a partner in Swift & Company or any of
its sujxjrdinate. establishments, nor have I any
partnership arrangement with Mr. L. F. Swift. I
have" never met Mr. Swift except at a stockmen's
( banquet in Chicago and have never discussed busi
ness matters with him.
I own only 130 out of 4000 shares in the Co
lumbia Basin Wool Warehouse Company, which
is a corporation engaged in the purchase, storage
and sale of wool, with headquarters in the city of
Portland. I made my subscription to this enter
prise in order to help put Portland on the map as
a wool center. The remainder of the 4000 shares
is divided among a large number of stockholders,
most of whom are business men of the city of
Portland,, although Mr. Swift owns several shares
of stock. The stock of this company was bought
and sold on the market and the fact that I own a
few shares and that Mr. Swift also is a stockholder
does not in any sense make me a copartner of
I own only five shares of the 1000 shares 4f the
Livestock State Bank at North Poitlind. Mr.
Swift is also a stockholder in this concern but it is
not a copartnership and those who own stock are
in no sense partners. A number of the stockholders-
both, of the Columbia Basin Wool Ware
house Company-; and the Livestock State Bank
.also own snares of stock in the United States
National Bank of Portland. v Senator George E.
- Chamberlain is stockholder" and director in this
bank, but it would be the height of folly to charge
him with being a partner of the other stockholders
and directors of this institution.
I own no shares whatever in the Portland Cattle
Loan Co. '
I am engaged , primarily in the sheep business,
although I have cattle and other agricultural in
terests. I raise and purchase sheep and cattle and
have frequently sold both through the Union Stock
Yards of Chicago, and in some instances have sold
to Swift & Company, but I have also sold to vari
ous other packing plants in Chicago, Omaha,
Kansas City, St Joseph and North Portland. I
have sold beef and mutton on the open market
but the fact that I have sold at times to Swift &
Company does not in any sense make me a partner
in any of their enterprises.
My business is a legitimate7 one and needs no
I am not a speculator but a producer and a large
employer of men, and a large purchaser of all
materials. I have at times owned shares of stock
in various enterprises, but it would require a very
wide stretch of the imagination to picture me as a
farmer of the other stockholders! many, of whom
have never seen and who are entirely unknown,
I had hoped that the present campaign would be
. conducted in a clean and dignified way with due.
regard for the issues of the day and with no con
sideration of irrelevant issues. 1 have no objection
whatever to a full and free discussion of mv record
as a business man, provided this is an adherence
to facts. I feel that I have been misrepresented in
the matter of the alleged partnership with Swift &
Company and Mr. L. F. Swift, I therefore take
this opportunity of informing the public as to the
exact state of the affairs.
v; Yours very truly,
' y.y . R. N. STANFIELD.
