CANNON'S PLAN ADOPTED.
Houso Committee Will Investigate the
Paper Situation?Williams Opposes
Washington, April 21.?Under suspension
of the rules the house today
considered and adopted the resolu i
tion introduced by Speaker Cannon in ,
his capacity as a 'representative, pro- *
viding for the appointment of a select
W coinm'ttee to investigate the paper
jffi: . trust and the general subject of wood .
J| P^lp and the manufacture of printing
H paper. The vote stood 184 to 110 and
jp." was strictly on party lines.
In explanation of the resolution Mr.
Dalzell (Pa.) said it was a matter of
public note that there had been a
large increase in the price of paper.
Never, he declared", had there been
such an agitation as had been aroused
by tlivj newspapers during the last
&r - weeks. While there was a consensus
of opinion as to the increase
||l there was no consensus as to the cause
w. of that increase. It was, he said,
.W capable of mathematical demonstra||
tion (hat the increase was not due to
the tariff, and lie contended that it
would not be changed by a removal
fif the tariff. However that may lie,
lie said', there were those who bc
licved that the increase was due to
K a combination or trust and it was nec1
essary to get the facts upon which to
K base a bill to meet the case.
W Mr. Williams thought the rise in
W price was due "both to the tariff and
the combination and the combination
f is due to the tariff." If, he said, It
had been intended to kill the combination
it could have been done by put- ,
ting wood pulp and print paper on
the free list.
Declaring his opposition to the resolution.
Mr. Williams said he did
not. think there would be anv real
search for the truth and no real finding
or reporting I lie truth. The resolution.
lie said, was intended solely to
whitewash the tariff as a criminal
against the American people with regard'
lo wood pulp, and 'Mo circumvent
this Mr. Herman Kidder at the
head of the great newspaper association
'or the German devil' as some
people are beginning to call him?and
get around legislating on the question."
DIAL LOSES IN CONTEST.
Ware Shoals Mill to Issue Preferred
Stock?Judge Gage Refuses
Greenwood, April 21.?Another
chapter was added to Hie already interesting
fight which is being waged <
among the stockholders of the Ware
Shoals mill today when Judge Gage
handed down his order refusing to
grant the injunction on the motion
made hist Saturday for an injunction.
The motion wa-j made by the attorneys
for the minority stockholders
and by it they sought to enjoin the'
meeting scheduled for tomorrow, ai
which the majority stockholders propose
to issue preferred stock.
This motion was argued at great
length before Judge Gage on Saturday
and affidavits were read pro and
>; con to sustain the respective sides of
the controversy. Some time in March
jv. at a meeting of the directors of tire .
? corporation in Washington it was determined
lo pass a resolution recommending
to the stockholders that they
'vV; issue $500,000 additional stock and
that the stock so issued be preferred
s'??k '? bear 7 per cent and to be
redeemed at a premium. A. notice was
<<$ sent to (lie stockholders advising tlrem
M of the proposed action and the minorIP
ity stockholders then made the motion
above referred to pwtylng for an injunction.
Hon. N. B. Dial and other stockholders
in Laurens and elsewhere
compose the minority stockholders in
this suit and the fteigels are the defendants
to the action. The contention
of the Dial side was that it would
be wrong to allow the issue as proposed
since a suit had already been
started and was pending by which all
of lire issues between the parties
would be settled. The Reigels contend
that it is the best business policy
at Ibis lime lo issue the preferred
stock and that it is a question solely
of internal management with which
the court should not interfere. Affidavits
were read from Dial and others
in which they said that it had been
understood from the beginning that
there was lo be no preferred stock.
The affidavits on both sides contained
matter which had nothing to do with
the motion, but which was pertinent
to lire issues of the case now pending.
The return of the lielgels denied any
such understanding as to preferred
slock and affidavits were read from
prominent mill men lo show that it.
was the best business policy to issue
the preferred stock at tiiis time.
Aim.nit' those who .nave such afllda- I
vits were: Lewis \Y. Parker and Mr.
Beattie of Greenville. A. F. MeKis- (
sick and ?J. K. Durst of Greenwood
and Aug. \Y. Smith of Spartanburg. j;
The attorneys appearing for the mo- v
tion were Simpson & Bomar of Spar- n
tanburg, Simpson, Cooper & Babb j
and Messrs. MoGowmu it Todd of ?
Laurens. Mr. T. P. Cothrau and j
Grier & Park represent the Reigel in- (
After arguments by Mr. McGowan, t1
Mr. Cothran, Air. Cooper, Mr. Grier ?
and Mr. Simpson, Judge Gage an- }1
nouneed that he would' take the mat- t
ter under advisement and file a proper
order 011 Tuesday. This order wa? j
received here this afternoon and in it
the judge refused the injunction which ^
the minority stockholders asked for. ,
The stockholders of the Ware Shoals j
Manufacturing company will hold a
meeting tomorrow at Ware Shoals and
the capital stock will be increased
from $1,000,000 to $1,500,000.
