ber Rates 10 Cents.
Action by Judge Hanford in Wash
ington Concurred In by Judge
Wolverton, of Oregon.
Sonttlo, Wash., Oct. 31. Federal
Judge lianlord yesterday at a special
session of court, grunted the Injunction
prayed for by tho Washington A Ore
icon Lumbermen' aisoclatlons to pre
vent tlio roods ol tho Harrlman system,
tho lturllngton, Northern Paclflo and
Great Northern railroads, from placing
in effect tho now rate on lumber which
was to havo brcomo offoctlvo November
Dili rate was 60 cent, as sgalnst tho
present rato of 40 cents from the Bound
nnd Western Oregon point to St. Paul,
anil tho lumbermen feel that they have
gained one of tho greatest vlctoiltJ ol
tho long fight again. t tho railroads.
In concurring, Foetal Judgo Wol
verton, of Oregon, practically decided
tho Oregon case of llko nature, which
comes up today in that state.
Judge Uanford dealt with the various
objections Interposed by tho railroad
attorneys and held that romo of them
were- matters for grave consideration.
Ho directed that tho order bo pre
eented to him for signature, this morn,
ing at 8 c'clock, and fixed tho bond at
1250,000 to protect the railroads In
case tho Inlsis tato Commerce commis
sion takes action In their favor.
When Judge Uanford concluded, F.
O. Dlllare, special interstate commis
sion lawyer for tho llarrlman roads,
asked it the roads would bo punlihed
it they enforced Uio rate on lumber
concerns not parties to the defendant to
the action. The reply was In effect
that they would not, and tho lumber
men aro telegraphing eviry lumber
company not a party to tho actton ad
vising that they order thelrjawyera to

Refute Lumber Shipments Until Fur
thor Notice.
Hotllngham, Wash., Nov. 1. No
more lumber shipments will bo received
by tho Notthern Pacific railroad in tho
Northwest until further notice. This
Is tho order tent out to all agontaot tho
company Inst night.
This moo of tho Northern Pnclllo la
expected to bo followed by all tho rail
roads aflectvd by tho Injunction Issued
by tho Federal court In Seattle Thins
day night, making it compulsory on
the part ol tho railroads to chargo tho
old rato ot 40 centa on lumber from
terminal points on tho Pacific Coast,
Tho railroads had issued a now iched
ulo ot into tliat were to bo effect ho
today. This now schedule was fought
by ttio lumbermen and resulted in tho
issuance ot tho tempomty injunction,
The railroads havo ovldeutly found
another method ot combatting tho lum
bermen. Tho latest move is (ho refusal
to accept any shipments ot lumber nt
any rate. Tiio roads figuro they would
bo taking too great a risk to allow tho
excess freight to accumulate until n
final decision on tho rato Is made, as
they say that litigation will emtio lie
foro tho matter Is settled, and many
ot the lumber films may havo gone out
ol business.

Portland, Nov. 1. -Following tho de
cision tendered by the United States
Circuit Court at Seattle Wednesday,
Judgo Wolverton, ot the Federal court,
granted an Injunction yesterday re
straining tho railroads from putting In
tho advanced lumber rates to the Kaat
until tho merits ot tho ease can be set
beforo tho Interstate Commerco com
mission and a hearing bo held. Tho
restraining order was asked by tho Ore
gon A Washington Lumber Manufac-
turns' association, and upon bis return
from bcatlle yesterday morning Judgo
Wolverton announced that the prayer
of tho lumbermen would be granted.
Judgo Wolverton ordered tho associa
tion to put up a bond for 1350,000 that
will be called for in tho erent the rail
roads finally win. This money will be
used to pay the difference between the
present rates and the proposed tariffs,
should tho railroads finally win.
Lumber companies in the state not
members ot the association aro advised
to filo suits in intervention as Boon as
possible, In order that tho railroads
will not bo enabled to enforce the pro
posed freight rates on firms not parties
to the suit brought by the association.
Tho advanced rate, .as announced by
the railroads on all lumber shipments
to the Missouri and Mltsl.stppl rivers,
were to havo gone Into effect today,
but the injunction will postpone them
indefinitely. The Increase was pub
lished some tlmo ago and tariffs Issued
by the railroads. Anneals were made
direct to the Interstate Commerce com
mission to postpone the enforcement
of tho rate, but as no complaint was
before the commission, it could not act
upon th-i appeal.

Portland Depositors Maka no Attempt
to Withdraw Funds.
Portland, Oct. 31. Portland showed
confidence In its lanka yesterday to a
remarkable degree. There was no In
dication ol a run at any ot the Institu
tions when they opened for butinee at
the usual hour after tho holiday. All
resumed buslnt-es as usual with the ex
ception oi the Title Guarantee A Trust
company, which preferred to take ad
vantage ot the five-day bank holiday In
order that there might be no doubt aa
to the legality ot tho basinets transact
evl. as real estate transactions come
up vrry largely in this bank, it was
thought best by President Rons to avoid
possible legal entanglements.
There was no uneasiness apparent
about the city yesterday, and the banks
were not pressed for money. In fact,

Acute Stage of Financial Crisis Over
In East.
New York. Nov. 1. Indications that
tho available supply ot cash would be
materially Increased wthln a short time
with imports ot gold and the increase
ot the tank note circulation, and that
the movement ol cotton and grain crops
would bo facilitated In every way pos
sible with the result ot Increasine our
creuus abroad, were the salient feat
ures of today's financial situation. It
seemed to be recognised everywhere
that the acute stage ol the crisis was
over and that all that remained was to
obtain sufficient currency to resume
currency payments upon a broad scale
and thus to restore conditions prevail
ing before the crisis.
Tho engagements of gold made In
New York, Chicago and elsewhere
brought op the total import movement
within the past week to 123,750.000.
As the amount ot gold will afford a
basis of credit to four times the
amount, or about 195,000,000, it will
la itself afford much relief to the ex
isting pleasure.
Harvard Angers Germans.

saying that as the result of the action
ot the commission, conditions at that
point have much improved and that he
has no further cause for complaint.
Car Shortage Hurts.
Athena The car shortage here is a
great drawback in the shipping nt pro
uucu. jiany hundred tuns of wiieet
are stored in the various wsrohonses
awaiting shipment, and most of the
wheat that has been shipped ro far was
lent out on fist cars. Many of the
farmers along tho little railroad sta
tions have been unable to sell their
wheat at good prices because the ware
house companies, as the agents, are
unwilling to buy too much wheat un
ices they know they can ship it out.
