Says Lumber Manufacturer When
Told of Attitude of Roosevelt.
WASHINGTON, November 20.
"Wo havo already crossed the verge
of a timber famine, so severe a blight
that it will bo felt in every hamlet
in the land," said Theodore M. Knap
pen, a real cstato dealer of Minneap
olis, at today's hearing oh tariff revi
sion before the ways and means com
mittee, and he added: "In five years
every saw mill in Minnesota will bo
abandoned. Yet this industry in its
prime' employed 10,000 men."
He spoke for the repeal of the duty
on timber, saying that A'mcrican labor
had nothing to fear from free trad.e,
as Canadian labor was as high as labor
in thi founty.
That protection was needed was as
serted by J; B. White, a lumber manu
facturer of Kansas City, in asking that
the present rate of duty on lumber be
retained, if not increased. Ho argued
that a protective tariff would tend to
conserve the forests of tho country, on
the theory that every stray log in the
forests would be used in manufacture.
"JIow about President Rooseyclt,
Gifford Pinchot and these other gen
tlemen who are arguing for froo'trade

"They have not heard me talk," was
tho ready reply.

price of lumbqr was duo to speculation

JUDGE NAVE INSTRUCTS FOR
JUDGMENT FOR DEFENDANT
IN RUNAWAY CASE.
J. W. Hamm Asked for 512,000 Dam
ages for Personal Injuries to His
Wife By Garbage Wagon in Runaway
on July i of Last Year.
At the direction of Judge Nave, prtj
siding in the district court, the jury in"
the case of J. W. Hamm vst the City
of Globe, returned a verdict for thp de
fendant, dismissing the plaintiff's
claim of $12,000 damages for personal
injuries to his wife, July 4, 1907, when
she was run over by a garbage wagon
in a runaway alleged to have been
caused by fireworks on the street. One
of Hamm 's children received injuries
from which she died some time later,
at the same time, and on that cause
he has also filed a suit for $13,000,
whicfT has not yet been tried.
When trial of the case was resumed
yesterday, the plaintiff called to the
stand Sheriff J. II. Thompson, Donald
Haverley, Tip Henderson, J. H. Welch,
Charles L. Baker, Mary A. Blake, Sam
uel May, Mrs. Hamm, II. II. Bru and
Dr. A. F. Maisch. At the conclusion of
their testimony, City Attorney Allrcd
moved that the case be dismissed, as
there was nothing to show that the gar
bage wagon which was held to have in
jured the plaintiff's wife was tho prop
erty of the city. The court ruled ac
cordingly. Frank Williams, charged ith assault
to commit murder, was discharged on
motion of the district attorney.
Thomas Harris, charged with shoot
ing with intent to murjler Mrs. Woods,
a colored woman, was allowed to with
draw his plea of not guilty and to plead
to a c liar go of assault with a deadly
weapon. He will be sentenced Monday.

Socialists Lose Out in Long Debate
Over Course of Federationist, Which
They Condemned and Aro Voted
Down by Convention.
DENVER, November 20.' At no
time sinco the opening of the conven
tion of the American Federation of La
bor has there been any doubt 'that
President Gompers was in complete
control, but it was .thought possible
that part of his rcpor might bo materi
ally amended, or his political course'
The Tcport was before the convention
for a day and a half, and, although for
a while there wag vigorous discussion
over some of its contents, it was adopt
ed this afternoon and Gompers there
by fully endorsed.
Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, the
election of officers will be the special
order of business. All of. the old of
ficers will probably be elected with tho
exception of Vice President Daniel J.
Kcefe, and even ho may be again voted
into oflice. It is reported that the min
ers have decided to support Mr. Keefc
for re-election, and they have tho
largest vote of any union in the con
vention. It is also reported that Gom-
pers will not oppose Keefe, but this'
cannot bo confirmed, as the president
refuses to bo interviewed on tho sub
ject. In the report of the committee on tho
president's report, there was a section
commending the course of tho American
Federationist, the official organ. Ob
jection to this was made by the leading
socialists jirescnt. They wanted the
report .amended so that a committeo
would be appointed to investigate tho
sources of the income of tho socialist
party in tho recent campaign. This
information was desired because of an
attack upon Eugene V. Debs, that ap
peared in the Federationist. '
An amendment was offered to ask
the socialists if they were responsible
for attacks on Federationist officials in
the socialist press. The amendment
was adopted and precipitated a debate
in which a number ofo delegates took
part, including President Gompers.
J. M. Barnes colsed the discussion
in the course of his remarks, de
nied several charges made by Gompers.
Gompers desired to speak a second
time, but Barnes objected. By this ob
jection the socialists lost all they had
gained by .thcif eloquence, and tho
convention promptly vote"d down their
amendment and adopted tho debated
At this.pdiht, Delegate T. L. Lewis
of the miners, interrupted the proceed
ings, and, in an eloquent speech, pre
sented, on behalf of tho convention, to
President Gompers a handsome silver
loving cup, and to Mrs. Gompers a dia
mond ring. Mr. Gompers was overcome
by thp good will of tho delegates.
PEKIN, November 20. It is becom
ing evident that Prince Chun, tho
regent, is taking the matters of gov
ernment into his own hands and that he
resents interference from th6 Dowager
Empress Ychonala, or members of the
grand council. A vigorously worded
edict, issued by tho regent today, in
tho name of tho emperor, sets forth
that his authority was received from
tho lato dowager empress and that" it
commands obedience to him. It says
"All imperial clansmen aro ordered
to give a greater degreo of obedienco
than others; this is for the effect' of the
example. Disobeying princes and offi
cials will bo dealt with without leni
ency. Our purposo in this isto fulfill
the command of tho lato dowager em
press and to satisfy tho people."
Tho wording of this edict indicates
tho existenco of dissension in tho im
perial family, and a disposition to take-'
matters into his own hands is indi
cated by other reports from the palace'
regarding tho princo, regent.
