Corporal Sullivan Served in
Provost Guard Under
"Hard boiled'" Smith anl
That tales of cruelties practiced on
military prisoners in Paris by Lieut.
H. B. Smith, known as "lardboiled"
Smith, as related to the recent con
gressional committee of investiga
tion,- were not at all exaggerated, is
the assertion of Corp. William V.
Sullivan, who served under Smith in
Paris as a member of the provost
guard and who is now spending a
furlough in Butte.
According to Sullivan, Smith was
officer in charge of the army prison
camp at Paris and the cruelties he'
practiced on his helpless prisoners
put the atrocities of the Huns to
Among the cruelties alleged by.
Sullivan was Smith's practice of re
quiring all prisoners, including the
wounded, to run up and down three
flights of stairs with their hands held
high- above their heads, and the re
quiring -of prisoners for whom there
was 'no work to. stand rigidly at at
tention for as long as six hours.
When prisoners, either through
weakness or other causes, were un
able to complete the punishment
tasks assigned them, they were beat
en over the head.
Smith, said Sullivan, often re
luired newly received prisoners to
thoroughly clean a certain space oni
the prison floor with a tooth brush'
and then to occupy the cleaned space
for sleeping. On. other occasions, he
paid, prisoiers were required to
empty a bathtub full of water with a
-Sullivan told of one instance in
vhich a negro soldier who had been
cruelly mistreated, vowed to 'get
even." Later he shot and killed two
military police at the POrte Malliot.
He is now in ,the worst prison camp
in France, said the relator.
Lieutenant Smith was-recently dis
honorably discharged from the army
and is now'in a hospital at Fort Jay,
N. Y., recovering from injuries re
ceived when he was badly beaten by
soldiers at the fort. Congress is now
engaged in an inquiry to determine
why the court martial punishment of
the allegedly brutal lieutenant was
limited to a mere discharge.

Interstate Commerce Com
mission Hearing Evidence
in Columbia Basin Rate
(By United Press)
Portland, Ore.. July 21.--Port
land's big fight to win from Seattle
_ the business of the Inland Empire
opened here today before three mem
Sbers of the Interstate commerce com
The commissioners heard evidence
in the Columbia basin rate case,
which, if decided as Portland desires,
would result 'in a precedent which
would cause readjustmnents of rates
The commission is asked to grant
a lower freight rate by. way of. the
I water grade between the Inland Em
pire and jports of the Columbia than
" by way of the mountains between: the
Island Empire and Puget' Sound
The hearing will be transferred to
Seattle July 28, and. will continue
there for probab ly four days.
All Puget Sound ports are with
Seattle in this case, just as all Co
lumbia ports are with Portland.
Those advocating the lower rate for
the water line have sought backing
from the big grain growers of the
empire on the groutdds that lower
rates would mean more money to the
producer. Puget Sound interests
have countered with the reply that
iates to Portlnnd would not be low
ered-that rates to" Pugct Sound
merely would be raised.
Theo'be big contention of the Co
lumbia river ports is that every cost
of mountain transportation is great
er than the cost entailed in the steady
downward slope to the mouth of the
Columbia. anld that, therefore, the
rates should be lower into Columbia
Seattle has the lion's share of the
Inlanlld Elmpire business now. This is
t'explained by local interests by the
- fact Ihet Iteo terminals of. the big
Hill Iailroalds tapping the Inland Em
pile are at Seattle.
'l".l cotmention that. transporta
tion on the water level is entitled to
a lower rate than transportation over
the mountains will be fought by a
powerful combination of Puget

The stakes played for are immense.
Grain is the principal industry of the
Inland Empire,' which includes all
the Wide expanse of territory of the

No rate hearing in the west has
ever been attributed greater import
ance. This is. indicated.by .the fact
that three commissioners have come
from W'a:.htington to hear it. Never
before has a western case been so
dignified. The commissioners who
will hear the case are H. C. Hall,
Winthrop 1M. Daniels and Joseph E.
Eastman. The hearing will be at the
