Paper and Pulp Should Enter

Newspaper Men in Com
PROTECTION CRY IS
Difference in Labor Cost
Eight Cents Per Ton; Duty
Asked Is $3.75 Per Ton
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—Substantial
reductions of the tariff all along the
lino In the woodpulp and print paper
schedule and retention of approxi
mately the existing duties on tobacco,
cigars and similar articles constitute
part of the democratic tariff revision
program at the coming extra session.
This was the situation as viewed to
nighj following two sessions today
and another tonight in the marshaling
of testimony on schedules "M," pulps,
papers and books, and "F," tobacco
and its manufactures.
Just how far the democratic mem
bers will go In cutting the paper
schedule is problematical. They have
not held a conference nut the con
sensus of sentiment favors reduction
Of the incidental portions it prob
ably is assured that the committee will
provide for free admission of bibles
and of other religious works. A plea
for elimination of the 25 per cent duty
on bibles was made today by the Pres
byterian committee of publication.
Most of the democratic members of
the committee regard the itemg in the
tobacco schedule as luxuries and one
of the most easily adapted to revenue
REDUCE TARIFF OX PAPER
Chief interest in the day centered In
the presentation of the arguments of
the newspaper publishers and of the
opposed paper manufacturers. John
Norris of New York, chairman of the
committee on paper of the American
Newspaper Publishers association,
representing consumers who pay
$55,000,000 a year for newsprint paper,
presented testimony in favor of letting
down the bars that shut out Canadian
paper and the cutting off of all re
strictions upon the importation of the
cheaper grades of paper and wood
pulps. The American Paper and Pulp
association, through Arthur C. Hastings
of New York city, its president, with an
investment of $400,000,000 and an an
nual business of $300,000,000, voiced op
position to a change.
Robert Graves of New York urged
an increase from 35 to 40 per cent on
foreign wall paper, which comes into
competition with the higher grades of
domestic. Graves said that foreign
wall paper is a luxury of people of
Mr. Norris, in h!s plea for news print
paper from across the American bor
der, said that the American newspaper
publishers wanted congress to "insure
a permanent and adequate supply of
cheap paper by broadening the paper
market to the utmost." Mr. Norris
asserted the paper makers had been
coddled and enervated by the tariff;
that the International Paper company
had falsified and juggled figures andj
had starved the market; that there
have been fixed prices for years among
the manufacturers, and that he could
not buy a ton from the paper mills at
prices within reason. He charged that
the paper makers had attacked the
credit of projectors of new enterprises
and had urged banks to refuse them
loans, and that since IS9S, when the
International Paper company wai
formed, the paper makers in substan
tially all groups had been trying to
regulate the market by combinations
and" to maintain prices. Mr. Norris
further stated that exports of paper
in 1912 exceeded the imports by more
"The paper makers." he said, "fail
to tell you that while three-quartejps
of the machines operating in American
mills are fit only for the scrap heap,
nearly all the Canadian mills are
equipped with modern machines made
in America and manned by American
LADOR PROTECTION FALLACY
He also declared that the tariff board
had punctured the labor protection
fallacy; that the average cost of labor
In all Canadian mills was only 8 cents
less a ton than In the American mills,
yet congress had retained a $3.75 duty
"professedly in the Interest of labor."
Mr. Norris changed the association with
selling abroad at lower prices than to
Mr. Hastings, speaking for the asso
ciation, said that a large proportion of
the Importations of paper and pulp are
coming in free from Canada and that
pulp comes free from some other na
James Ij. Feeney of the International
Brotherhood of Bookbinders asked that
the provision in the law admitting
books printed over 20 years ago free of
duty be amended to provide that the
books admitted free must also have
been bound 20 years ago. Mr. Feeney
said that 10 years ago 1.000 men were
employed in "art binderies" in New
York and that but 200 were employed
today. He credited this condition to
the practice of sending old books
abroad to be rebound by "cheap foreign
lahor" and reimported free of duty.
Ebon I* Brown of the United States
Paper mills, Waterlown, N. V., repre
?rntin£ the news print mills of the
country, eaid that paper mills had In
creased the wages of their employes;
that the price of production had in
creased, but that by added efficiency
the selling prices of news print paper
i.arl been kept level for the last 10
years. The cost of production, he said,
had gone up from $fi to $9 a ton.
"\Ve are not here." he said, "to urge
the fixing of the duty on news print
paper on a protection basis. But we
do contend that as a revenue tariff the
duty should remain at $3.75 a ton, as tt
Is at present. This would be an ad
valorem duty of about 8 per cent, a
really low duty."
STRIKERS REACH AGREEMENT
NEW YORK, Jan. 17. —The confer

and the manufacturers reached an
agreement tonight regarding? terms of
a settlement. The

WATER IN CANAL
President Elect Is Urged to
Visit Zone Before Great
Channel Is Filled;
Will Do So
TIME FOR JOURNEY
NOT DECIDED UPON
Incoming Executive Learns
Much of the Parcel Post
TRENTON. X. J.. Jan. 17.—President
elect Wileon began today a eturly of
Panama canal questions. In response
to an Invitation Colonel George W.
Goethals, engineer of the canal, gave
Mr. Wilson an outline of conditions In
the canal zone, urging him to make a
visit there as soon ac possible. The
governor declared after the conference
that he had not discussed with Colonel
Goethals the question of appointing a
civil governor for the zone.
"I simply wanted to be Informed on
the situation of things at the Isthmus," ,
explained the president elect "I asked
Colonel Goethals many things that I
really could have found out from print,
but which I would much rather get
from him, about the laws and adminis
trative arrangements, so that I could
be ready to take hold without too
many preliminaries when I take office."
The governor said he was unable*to
decide at present Just when he would
visit the canal, though he was very
anxious to go. Colonel Goethale ex
plained that he expected to fill the
channel with water next December.
WILSON WILL, VISIT CAXAL
As Mr. Wilson desires to see the
canal before it is opened, it is probable
that # if he makes a visit it will be be
fore December. President Taft re
cently offered to place at Mr. Wilson's
disposal a battleship on which he
could make a trip to the zone before
his inauguration, but the president
elect declined because he wished to see
his program of reform safe through
the New Jersey legislature.
Mr. Wilson was given a detailed de
scription today of the White House and
its grounds by Colonel Spencer Cosby,
superintendent of buildings at Wash
ington. The president elect approved
the plan made by President Taft for the
addition of guest rooms on the third
story of the White House. Mr. Wil
son's family will require more room
than that of President Taft, and the
accommodation for house quests, it was
found, could be Increased by dividing
some of the larger rooms.
PARCEL POST LAW
The governor said he was very much
Impressed with what Representative
David J. Lewis of Maryland told him
about possible developments of the par
cel post law under a postmaster gen
eral who was "a master of transporta
tion and postal economies." Mr. Lewis
informed the governor that without ad
ditional funds or legislation the public
could send shipments at rates averag
ing half the present express rate if fast
freight service were utilized.
"Mr. Lewis interested me thorough
ly," said the governor, "because of the
study on his part of foreign systems.
He has a very practical mind and a
very suggestive one."
The president elect left late today
for New York for an overnight visit.
TO PAY WIFE ALIMONY
Aaked n« to Income, Connor Sain:
"When I Get What They
Patrolman Hugh N. Connor of the
harbor station was instructed by Judge
J. J. Van Nostrand yesterday to pay
$40 back alimony to his wife, Ernes
tine, by next Friday or face proceed
ings for contempt of court.
Connor was subjected to a brief ex
amination by the court as to his in

money he made, replied: "I get what

lowed the policeman one week to de

to pay his wife the money due her.
The following complaints were filed:

ARGENTINE WAR ON
U.S. TRADE IS FEARED
Southern Repnhllc TJkely in Retaliate
for American Tariff Conces
sion* in Brasll
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—State de
partment officials expressed disturb
ance today over the possibility of n
disastrous commercial war between
Argentina and the United States. They
have heard Argentina is likely to re
taliate for what is considered Jn that
country an unfair commercial advan
tage taken by the United States.
Brazil grants to the United States a
tariff reduction of 80 per cent on wheat
flour. This enables American millers
to compete with Argentina in Brazilian
territory. Argentina considers the Bra
zilian territory her own.
Argentina bought from the United
Ftates last year more than $60,000,000
worth of automobiles, agricultural im
plements and other manufactured prod
ucts, and It is feared that Argentina
will grant to Great Britain, Germany
and France a differential on those ar
ticles, which would mean the loss of
this trade to the United States.

EVENTS OF THE WEEK
AMONG CIVIC CLUBS
Mission Promotion Association Secures Sewer
Connections for Ingleside
An illustrated lecture on "The Water
Question," delivered Friday evening by
Herman Schussler, formerly chief en
gineer of the Spring Valley Water
company, formed the first of the series
planned by the lecture bureau of the
Civic League of Improvement > Clubs.
Tunnels, transportation, street clean
ing, lighting and other subjects will
be taken up in turn.
The efforts of the Mission Promotion
association to provide an adequate
sewer system in the district between
Ocean View and Ingleslde have been
brought to a successful issue by the
recommendation of the t>oard of public
works to the board of supervisors that
$2,000 be set aside out of the proceeds
of the 1904 sewer bonds to construct
a sewer system between these two
densely populated districts. Although
these sections are inhabited bY many
families, they are at present entirely
devoid of all sewer facilities.
The first steps to have money set
aside for improving , rfan Bruno avenue
and other county roads have been tak
en, as it has been ascertained that the
property owners In San Bruno avenue
will stand the cost of paving and curb
NORTH BEACH PROMOTION
The North Beach Promotion associa
tion went on record at Its meeting
Thursday evening in favor of the enact
ment of an ordinance that will allow
the collection of tolls from streetcars
that will use the Stockton etreet and
other tunnels, the same to be paid to
the property owners assessed for these
Improvements until such time as they
are entirely reimbursed. Supervisors
Cagfieri and Vogelsang urged the asso
ciation to petition for an extension of
the municipal road along Stockton
street, through the proposed tunnel, to
connect with the Ferries and Presidio
line, which reverts to the city soon, and
thence to fort Mason and the exposition
grounds. A committee composed of
George Skaller, J. ft Phillips, Emilio
Lastretto and Dr. A. S. Musante was
appointed to present arguments before
the supervisors in support of the propo
BTore as large an attendance as has
been known by the organization for
a long time, the Polk Street District
association Tuesday evening discussed
a number of improvements for the
neighborhood. In arguing against a
liquor license asked for at Fern and
Polk streets, the association -went on
record as opposed to the issuance or
transfer of any more licenses to Polk
street. Electroliers of the type used
downtown will be installed along the
street within the next two months. For
this about $5,000 has been subscribed
already. The extension of Polk street
to the fair grounds was also taken up.

the district, for which $60,000 to $75,000
is desired. A committee was appointed
to appear before the library commission
and urge its construction. Several lo

opinion being that it should be situ

Extension of the auxiliary high pres
sure fire protection system to the
Hayes Valley district will be asked by
members of the Hayes Valley Improve
ment association at kickers' meeting
next Monday night. As the system at
present only touches the locality at
Fillmore, Van Ness, Market and Golden
Gate, its extension from Golden Gate
avenue to Market street in Lagunn,
and also in Hayes and Grove streets
Is asked. The city engineer's office
will also be aeked to furnish a detailed
working plan of the Hayes street cut.
The association hopes to secure orna
mentation of the Hayes street side of
the proposed municipal auditorium.
HAIGHT AXD ASHBLRY
Preparations for taking charge of
the dedication ceremonies of the n«w
Lowell hlg-h school on February 22 are
being: made by the Haight and Ash
bury District association. The fourth
annual theater party of the association
will take place at the Haight street
theater on March 4, and the second
■annual banquet Is scheduled for Janu
ary 23 at a downtown restaurant. An
extension of the municipal railroad
through the district is one of the mat
ters most prominent before the asso
ciation. At the next meeting Dr. C. D.
Salfield will argue against the proposed
condemnation of the Spring , Valley
properties. Twenty-three new members
have been admitted to the association.
The topic, "Why Should the Twin
Peaks Tunnel Be Extended From
Eighteenth and Diamond Streets to
Market and Valencia, and What Bene
fits Will Accrue?" will be discussed by
the South Central Improvement asso
ciation at its meeting next Wednes
day evening* in St. Joseph's hall, 250
Tenth street. The association has in
dorsed the measure put forth by Super
visor Nolan providing that the income
derived from all tunnels constructed
under district assessment shall be paid
to those who have paid assessments un
til they shall be fully repaid, and also
that all railroads using such tunnels,
including the municipal railway, shall
pay a fair toll for its use.

Mission terrace, one of the new resi
dence tracts opened up a little over a
year ago, is forging ahead. Outside
builders have been attracted by the
opportunities Mission terrace offers as
a restricted home section at very mod
erate cost. Roemer & Walton have
for years been making a success of
home building in Palo Alto and vicin
ity and have just begun in Mission
terrace an Individual type of bunga
low, typical of those which have been
so successful and popular in the Santa
Clara valley. These new comers have
reserved the entire frontage of 16 lots
in Otsego street from San Juan to
Santa Ysabel and have already com
menced the construction of the first
of these bungalows.
When Baldwin & Howell first of
fered the tract, the easy terms offered
seemed to appeal to speculation, but
that element seems to have been dis
couraged by the owners , and the entire
tract developed entirely as a home

SUNNYSIDE LINE IS TO
BE EXTENDED WESTWARD
Will Go Through St. Francis
Wood to Western Portal
That a road and streetcar line will
be built in the near future in extension
of Sunnyside avenue, connecting with
Sloat boulevard and Corbett avenue
and having a western extension
through St. Francis Wood and term
inate at the western portal of the pro
posed Twin Peaks tunnel, is the em
phatic statement of J. B. Zimdars,
chairman of the Sunnyside Improve
ment association. Whether the car line
will be built by the United Railroads
to connect their Sunnyside line with the
beach lines, or whether it will be un
dertaken by private capital, is not di
vulged, but it is asserted that the pre
liminary surveys have already been
made and Oie actual construction will
be commenced in the next few weeks.
This new railroad line will run from
the present terminus of the Sunnyside
avenue In a westerly course co that the
main extension will Join the southwest
corner of St. Franc-is Wood. About
midway in the line to Corbett avenue
a branch will swing into Santa Clara
avenue running north through Bt.
Francis Wood, Intersecting St. Francis
boulevard and terminating at the west
ern portal of Twin Peaks tunnel.
"The Sunnyside line is at present a
continuation of the Guerrero street
road, but It is planned that this lino
will be changed so that a branch of the
Mission and Valencia street lines will
be continued through the Bernal out
and then out Sunnyelde avenue." eald
Zimdars yesterday. "This, with the
connection to the beach lines and the
Twin Peaks portal, would have the ef
fect of shortening the time between
the ferry to St. Francis Wood and Sun
nyside by more than 10 minutes or of
making the trip about 25 minutes.
"The Bernal cut will undoubtedly be
widened so that in addition to the old
Southern Paclflo Ban Jose line, which
it now accommodates, it will carry the
car line and a wide street or highway.
This plan has been advanced by the
Mission Promotion association, and has
been indorsed by Blon J. Arnold, the
traffic expert, who suggested that this
be adopted as the most practical way
of opening up and developing the great
south Miasion section. This is in line
with the good roads plan of the south
and the peninsula, and will undoubt
edly be undertaken in the very near
