CLAIMS HALF OF IMMENSE
Charles P. Baker of Seattle Seeks to
Restrain Transfer of Stock of
the Snoqualmle Falls
By Associated Pr**».
CHICAGO, Nov. 4.-Chftrleg P. Baker
of Seattle, Wash., filed a bill in the
United States circuit court here thin
afternoon for an Injunction to restrain
the transfer of any of the stock or
securities of the Snoqualmle Falls and
White River Tower rompany of the
state ,of Washington. Baker, who
claims a half Interest In the plant,
said to be worth millions, alleges in
his bill that he received only $465.
Baker Is the son of William T. Baker,
. now dead, former millionaire financier
and stock broker of Chicago.
The latter furnished the money and
the complainant, the bill avers, the
skill and brains for the development of
I the plant. The complainant alleges
j because of the relations naturally cx
i Istlng between father and son no con
' tract was ever reduced to writing,
, However, the bill says a verbal agree
ment was made, the father agreeing to
', furnish the money If the son would
I develop the power plnnt, each to enjoy
I half the profits. Howard W. Baker,
\ brother of the complainant. Is admlnls-
I trator of the estate of the father and, It
J, Is charged, by alleged manipulation of
[ : more than $2,000,000 worth of stock In
i ! the power plant has arranged matters
ffi so the complainant cannot get what he
if. claims as his; that all he received was
| the $465.
1 Baker In his bill for an injunction
m also asks an accounting with hts
II brother and all other properties of the
I father and N. W. Harris & Co., and
» Dexter Horton & Co., bankers, who
I hold the stocks known. In addition
| he asks a decree of the court Riving
I him a one-half Interest In all posses
| slons of his father, having to do with
| the power plant.
The complainant was a civil engl
l nenr, but without means, according 1 to
I the story* set up In the bill. He dls-
I covered In 1887 the possibilities of tak-
I Ing power from certain water falls In
1 tho state of Washington and furnlsh
| Ing electrical power to surrounding
I cities. He worked over his plan for
I ten years, when he discovered the
f great power sources In the Snoqualmle
■ Falls, with which he Interested his
1 father, the verbal agreement then be
. ing made. "When Baker had succeeded
thus far he planned to extend the
plants through western Washington.
As a result of his efforts. Baker al
leges, he established a large cheap
electric light and water plant, which
furnished power to thousands of per
sons In Washington. By much personal
effort ho secured a franchise to fur
. nlsh power In Seattle. Although there
were officers In the companies he had
formed, he was In complete control nnd
had power of attorney from his father,
that, he could spend his father's
money. He did all these things, he
declares, with the full knowledge and
consent, of his father and with the com
plete understanding that some time In
the near future he would he Riven a

hired Thomas T. Johnston, a civil en
gineer of Kvanston, 111., to aid him.
In IS9B he purchased the White River
company at Pierce, Wash., a. corpora
tion with c» pital stock of $1,500,000. Oth
er companies were formed for dis
posing of the power in cities an'i
towns and were combined under the
name of the Snoqualmie Falls and
White River Power company. Baker
declares that in developing the water
* power plant at the falls and making
other vast Improvements money was
being realized, but still his father had
failed to draw the contracts. Without
warning to the son, on October 6,
1903, the father died. Baker alleges

BITTERNESS IN OHIO
Leaders in Campaign Make Personal
Attacks on Opponents
By Associated Presa*
COLUMBUS, 0., Nov. 4.— The cam
paign Just drawing to a close has been
peculiar even for Ohio. Dignified plat
form declarations have been overlooked
In the bitter denunciations and personal
attacks characterize the campaign.
Saloons and their regulation, horse
racing and pool selling, the use of the
veto power, insurance management and
legislation and political bosslsm were
among the themes for discussion. The
Republican speeches have advocated
"President Roosevelt's policy," but the
Democrats have attacked Governor
Herrlck's administration, especially
crltlslng his use of the veto power. The
public criticism was that which
brought the Anti-saloon league Into this
field against the governor and con
sisted of a charge that by threatening
to use the veto against the Brannock
law. Governor Herrlck had compelled
changes In that bill. It was the in
fluence of that league which settled the
choice of the Democratic candidate for
governor, former Congressman John M.
Pattlson, a pronounced temperance
mun, a Methodist, in which church the
Anti-saloon league counts its leading
members, and a successful business
Another phase of the campaign and
one having Its particular complications
has been an attack on political bosslsm.
The speeches were particularly directed
against George B. Cox, tho Republican
leader In Hamilton county.
Chairman Garber of the Democratic
state committee today gave out a
proclamation that John M. Pattison,
the Democratic nominee for governor,
will curry the state by 36,000 plurality.
