A multitude of witnesses testified bo
fore Commissioner Lane yfeterday
about the car shortage and the crip
pling effect It has had upon the Indus
tries of the state. Not nn!v werp lum
bermen put on the stand, bnt Senator
Paulhamus told of itie sufferings of
the Puyallup berry growers, and the
troubles of the wheat farmers of East
ern Washington were gone into.
The lumber men contended that
while the ear (shortage was particular
ly acute at the present, there had nerer
heen a time for years when they got
all the cars that they wanted. The rate
at which cars moved was gone Into
and it was shown that this has stead
ily decreased from an average move
ment per car of 94 miles in 1903 to
3G miles In 1906.
No attempt was made to dispute the
car shortage by the railroad attorneys.
They sought to show, however, that
the present paralysis of traffic was the
result of the floods In November.
MUST APOLOGISE. OR RETIRE
Fate of Swettenham Unless He Can
Give Good Excuse.
London, Jan. 23. The Incident aris
ing from the exchange of letters at
Kingston between Governor Swetten
ham and Rear Admiral Davis now ap
pears to be entering the waiting stage,
as the government, after doing all
possible In the absence of advices from
the Governor of Jamiaca, Is obliged to
defer further action until he r( ports.
In the meantime the trend of official
sentiment is toward having Governor
Swettenham apologize or rftire, but
this is based on the press accounts of
the incident and on letters, and it may
be modified by Governor Swetten
ham's version, giving extenuating cir
cumstances. In the absence of a report from the
Governor to his government, his dis
patch to Secretary Root, which has
been reproduced here, tends further to
mystify the mind of the public, which
finds it difficult to reconcile the Gov
ernor's present recognition of the as
sistance rendered by the American
squadron wit hthe terms of the pre
