WAGE BATTLE ON

NEW YORK, Feb. 9.— P. Morgan

chase by his firm of a controlling inter

Protesting minority stockholders of
the companies are in New York taking
depositions to be used in the Ohio
courts in suits to check consummation
of the purchase, maintaining that J. P.
Morgan & Co. acted for the American
Telephone and Telegraph company (the
Bell interests) In acquiring six inde
pendent companies in Ohio and Indiana,
arid that as competition has ceased in
that territory the transaction is Ille
Morgan & Co. have held all along
that any purchases they made were
simply as an Investment of the firm.
H. B. McGraw of Cleveland and Sam
uel B. Jeffries of St. Louis, jointly rep
resenting minority stockholders, said
this afternoon that Mr. Morgan had
volunteered as a witness and that he
would be called, probably in a day or

Tho American Telephone and Tele
graph company, which controls the
Central Union company in Ohio and
Indiana, contends that the deal never
went through, and that it does not
know who owns the Independent com
panies and that it has no interest
whatever in them. It further asserts
that competition in that territory is as
strong as ever.
Evidence taken today showed that
the American Telephone and Telegraph
company negotiated with R. Ij. Day &

interest in the Ohio and Indiana com- '
panics, on the understanding that the
American company would take these
holdings if it found it could do so le

holdings and later disposed of them,
but the American company asserts that
it was not the purchaser.
A member of the firm of R. 1,. Day &
Co. will take the stand tomorrow, and
the minority stockholders hope to show
that J. P. Morgan & Co. ,were the pur
chasers, acting for the American Tele
phone and Telegraph company. The
American company admitted today that
it loaned Day & Co. more than $7,000,000
to acquire the majority holdings, but
that when Day & Co. were released
from their contract the loan was paid.

MISSOURI SENATOR HANDLES
ASKS WHY REPUBLICAN CHIEFS
WANT TO DO PROBING
Claim Made in Senate That Very Men
Responsible for Food Conditions
Are Crowding Onto
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.—As finally de
termined today, the Investigation of the
increase of prices of food and other
necessaries of life, which the senate Is
about to enter on, will cover a broad
The measure providing for such inves
tigation was passed today with compara
tively little discussion. It authorizes on
Inquiry by a special committee of seven
senators into the general enhancement of
values, covering not only food and cloth
ing, but many other articles used in
The Investigation also will cover the
question of salaries, earnings and the
At the instance of Senator Burton, the
resolution was made to cover all com
modities, while Senator Warren obtained
the Insertion of hides, leather and boots
and shoes; Senator Johnston the Insertion
of beef, sheep and hogs, and Senator
Bacon that of steel.
WASHINGTON, Feb. o.—Apropos of
the consideration of the composite Kl
kins-Lodge-McCumber food prices In
vestigation resolution reported to the
senate by the committee on finance
and contingent expenses, Senator
Stone of Missouri today addressed the
seriate on the general question of food
He undertook to show that the
Payne-Aldrich tariff bill is largely re
sponsible for the enhanced price of
many necessaries of life. Contrasting
the delay on reporting the Elkins res
olution with the dispatch in bring
ing in the Lodge measure, Mr.
Stone declared that there had been
a vast amount of "monkey business
in connection with the consideration
of the subject.
Saying he had been greatly puzzled
to know tho meaning of the method nf
the prodding, he declared it had the
complexion of a "purpose to conceal
rather than to discover."
Pertinent Question Asked
If not, why, he asked, "did Repub
lican members of the finance commit
tee come rushing headlong into this
business and exhibit an overwhelming
anxiety to take charge of the pro
; posed inquiry? If the remarkable
' thlnp* done here have given to the
I business the sinister aspect of a
; scheme on the part of certain sena
tors to organize a committee that
would start in primarily to hold tho
Payne-Aldrich law blameless for the
evils the country complains of, then
the senator from Massachusetts and
his Republican associates on the fin
ance committee have only themselves
"Ts it the purpose of the great sen
ators who have thrown themselves
Into this breach to put the proposed
investigation under the control of sen
ntors who were chiefly instrumental
in framing the new law and most con
cerned in exempting it from all re
sponsibility for the present high prices
that have followed its enactment? A
deep-laid apprehension to that effect
has been expressed by many newspa
pers and by many people in differ
ent parts of the country."
Increased Demand No Answer
He said ho knew of nothing which
Btood in such great need of a coating
of whitewash as the tariff lawn. As
serting that there had been a rapid
enhancement of prices since the pas
sage of the law, he declared that
in ithcr an increase in the demand for
food, nor an increase in the gold sup
ply could explain these advances in
so short ti time.
In all probability, Mr. Stone contin
ued, Mr. I^odge would head the com
mittee of investigation, and Mr. Stone
expressed apprehension that that sen
ator would hesitate to follow out any
line of inquiry which might substan
tiate Secretary Wilson's contention
that American food products are sold
more cheaply abroad than in the Unit
Mr. Stone quoted from letters and
newspapers to show a general increase
in the necessaries of life since the
enactment of the Payne-Aldrieh bill.
Among the letters was one from a St.
Louis merchant, saying that cotton
goods had increased In price from 12 1-2
to S3 per cent; linens, 71-2 to 10 per
cent, and hosiery 10 per cent.
Every man of common sense, he said,
ought "to know that "the enormous
profit accruing to investors in tip se
Industries are the result of artificial
conditions created by law.
"I don't see how it can be contend
ed." he continued, "that these artifi
cial conditions from which tho consum
ers thank heaven, aro beginning to
nic the impatient sufferers, aro
ily for the benefit of the Ameri
can wngs earners employed in those
Industries. I assort with the greatest
confidence, that the tariff rates, as a
rule, are far in excess of any differ
ence in the wage scale in America and
competing countries of Europe, and I
assert with equal confidence that the
chief beneficiaries of this system are
the men who employ this labor, as tho
chief sufferers are the consumers who
are the victims of their monopolies."
NEW UNIT OF EXCHANGE
SUGGESTED AS RELIEF
NEW YORK, Feb. 9.— J. Pease Nor
ton professor of political economy of
Yale who believes that the increased
production of gold and its consequent
cheapening is responsible for high
price* !■ convinced that the only per
manent remedy for the evil is tho
adoption of a new standard of money
to supplant the gold dollar. He makes
this suggestion in a statement Just
Prof. Norton proposes a new unit of
exchange which he calls the "dill."
This, he says, would be an imaginary
unit whose value would be equal to
the purchasing power of certain speci
fic quantities of Btaplo commodities,
as designated in federal law. His
plans Include also a central bank,
which would issue on demand to banks
and licensed storehouses "dill" credit
notes to the extent of 10 per cent of
the value of gold, silver or commodi
ties on hand.
CANNERS WARNED TO DODGE
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Feb. 9.—
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson In a
letter today to the National Canners'
association and allied organizations in
convention here, warned the packers
of canned fruits and vegetables from
entering into the controversy over tho
use of preservatives.
"The packers of canned goods can
not be advantaged by becoming In
volved in a controversy, which has no
natural connection with their busi
ness, 1' he said.
"American canned goods are the best
In the world and need no preservatives.
We know the canners of the country
use no preservatives in their goods
and I desire to have conveyed to the
organizations now in session my hope
that the canners will refuse to bo made
the tools of those, interests which are
fighting the rulings of the national
government under the pure food acts."
A. Urakeley of Bordentown, N. J.,
condemned the attempt to force the
dating of canned goods, explaining that
shortage of product; might force the
carrying of indelibly dated cans from
year to year.

FOUR MILLION ACRES OPENED
Large Area Taken from Reserves Is
Scattered Throughout Many
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.—More than
4,000,000 acres of land will be stripped
from the forest reserves of the United
States soon and restored to the pub
lic domain for homestead settlement
through the government's policy in
carrying- out Gifford Pinchot's idea as
to the classification of forest lands.
This is the initial result of Presi
dent Tuft's approval of-a plan jointly
submitted to him a few days ago by
Secretaries Wilson and Ballinger for
the reelassification of these lands.
The lands involved in the restoration
for settlement are those not suitable
for forest purposes and represent more
than 2 per cent of the total forest area.
It is difficult to estimate what will be
the total elimination when the whole
area has been mapped out.
It cannot be stated at this time what
withdrawals will be made from the
public lands for forest purposes in ac
cordance with the policy of classifica
tion. The. BUbjact is under considera
tion, and the land best adapted to for
est purposes will be added to the na
tional forests, but the matter has not
reached concrete form.
The great area which -would be. elim
inated from the forests is scattered
throughout the reserves, it was an
nounced today. ■
Taken from Reserve
Tracts in the interior of the forests
and much land along the edges will bo
lifted out of the confines of the re
serves, establishing with greater ex
actness the boundaries of the forests.
Some land eliminated is suitable for
dry farming, though the greater part
is' grazing land. These lands, more
suitable for tilling and grazing than
the growing of trees, will now be
placed to profitable use instead of ly
ing idle within the national forests.
in Idaho, which ims a large national
forest area, 470,00(1 acres will be elim
inated, of which 34 per cent is tillable.
Elimination in similar proportion will
be marie in other western states.
The forest lerviee has been at work
since May collecting data to determine
the proper classification of the lands
within the national forest domain, and
tl>. nlan evolved by the interior and
agricultural departments is expected
tc? insure the amicable administration
of the public lands by the general land
office and the forest bureau.
