MANNING ON STAND IN THE
Closely Questioned by Hughes— Was
Paid $450 a Year to Work In
Interests of Insurance
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Nov. 23.— 1t was latfl
this afternoon when Mr. Hughes, coun
sel for the legislative insurance Inves
tigation committee, called to the wit
ness chair William S. Manning of Al
bany, referred to in letters addressed
by John A. Nichols to Senator Depew
at a previous session ns the "ram
bunctious friend up the river,"
Mr. Manning was the most interest
ing witness of the day and was ques
tioned closely by Mr. Hughes as to his
connection with life Insurance com
panies. He detailed his work /or va
rious companies for many years and
came gradually to the time when ho
took up Insurance work in Albany and,
as he testified, "was paid $450 a year
by John A. Nichols to protect life in
surance Interests always in the Interest
of the business, but not in the Interest
of. the officers."
After several years, he said, this
amount was reduced to $300. He did
not know where Mr. Nichols was get
ting the money and had never inquired.
He denied that he had ever received
money from the Equitable Life Assur
ance society. When his fee was re
duced, however, he understood that thn
Equitable, the Mutual Life and the
New York Life had each paid $150, and
that the reduction was due to the fact
that the New York Life had dropped
out of the agreement.
An Interesting part of the testimony
was reached when Mr. Hughes inquired
concerning the state Insurance inves
tigation of 1877. Manning said he acted
as an expert there and found the re
ports Of the proceedings were "garbled
and untrue." He testified that he se
cured a corrected report of the proceed
ings from the official stenographer and
had a volume printed, the alleged
garbled parts having been printed In
Italics. These were sold to some In
surance companies for $50 a copy. The
volume was copyrighted to prevent the
publication of testimony contained in
the work. He denied also that he had
ever made arrangements with insurance
companies to stop the publication of
"I Just gave it up," he said, when
Mr. Hughes inquired. The committee
adjourned while Mr. Manning was on
the stand, until tomorrow morning.

WASHINGTON, NdV. 23.— The senate
committee on Interstate commerce to
day continued the discussion Of mea*-.
ures relative to amending the railway
regulations. Many Ideaa were ex
changed, but there were no develop
ments of importance. Senator Elklnd
chairman of the committee, occupied
much of the session in making aug
pfptlons and discussing propositions
which he thought ought to be Incorpor
ated in any bill that may be reported.
These suggestions were numerous and
would mean quite a lengthy measure
aside from regulation provisions.
Senator 101) Ins did not bring; forward
the pooling proposition but Intends to
present it later In some modified form,
so that there may be freer traffic be
tween railroads. One particular point
made by Senator Elklns looked to com
pelling trunk lines to afford better
facilities to lateral lines and small
romlH, which are compelled to use big
roads to reach a market. The better
management of the private car lines so
as to meet the demands of shippers and
amendment of the laws bearing en
terminal companies and terminal
charges also were suggested.
There was a great deal of talk by
other members of. the committee, and
during the afternoon the Esch-Town
send bill wns up for comment. It did
not seem likely that this measure
would be made the basis of action by
the committee, as several members
have made drafts of measures which
they will present for consideration. The

FRUIT GROWERS HAVE
MADE GOOD PROFITS
SEASON JUST CLOSED HAS BEEN
Manner of Selling Haa Been Greatly
to the Advantage of the Ranchers.
Average of Shipments Exceeds
That of Other Years ;
By Associated Press
SACRAMENTO. Nov. 23.— The suc
cess of the present fruit season that
is just now drawing to a close gives
zest to the Thanksgiving spirit which
pervades the entire state. One feature
that is particularly pleasing is the
manner in which the producers have
cleaned up the money. A great deal
of this year's fruit has been sold "on
growers' account" and their profits
have been great. Just to illustrate it
may be mentioned that on two car
loads of persimmons shipped by Ell
wood Cooper he will realize over 12500
V; cash, clear of all expenses. Practi
cally every ounce of fruit produced in
the state has been marketed, or will be
taken within the next two weeks.
George B. Katzenstein, manager of
the Karl Fruit company, in speaking
of the present season and the satis
factory results obtained by all con
cerned In this great industry, says: .
Always. ttfnff2«ber the Fidl JNeiae * . ".,•■ '
Cur««aCol4bOMDay,CiVta3 D*y»*-*» S*K&rW\** box. 33«
"The season has been a remarkable
one in many respects. With seriou*
disadvantages and apparently un-
promising outlook at tho outset, the
close indicates from the growers'
standpoint a most prosperous season , ;
and on the whole the largest recorder! 1
shipment of deciduous fruits In any
one year. . •■. ■<* wi i '
"Aside from local shipments to th«
larger centers within the state such an
San Francisco. X.os Angeles, 'etc., tt.o
carload lots shipped out of the state, I
mostly to the far Eastern points, may
be recapitulated in quantative order as
Peaches, 1945% carloads; grapes,
1592%; apples, 1493; plums,. 1391 V4:
pears, 1013; apricots, 29S^; ' cherries,
79' i; assorted, 16V4; Bhlpped Easts to
date, 7810. .. , V«-£J£»«s*
"It may be stated In a comparative!
way that the average similar-shipments'
during the past ten years have bee/T
6852 carloads. - ;•'.'••..»'.
' "As to the value in dollars and cents
I should say that" an average of. 11000
per car for the season just closed on
the whole would not be far out of 'the'
way; so the value of our export --of,
Eastern shipments of green declduoua
fruits alone would easily approximate,
$8,000,000. This takes no account of the
vast quantities consumed in the home'
markets." ', ' •.;
