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 vious letter.
