Record Against Change in Tariff Rate.
CHICAGO TO BE ESTABLISHED AS STORAGE CENTER
Forty-fifth Annual Session of Organization Comes to Close
After Election of Officers and Adoption of Import
ant Resolutions---Montana Man Is Elected
Treasurer of the Body.
Pocatello, Idaho, Jan. 16.-Ogden will
entertain the 46th annual convention
of the National Woolgrowers' associa
tion. Chicago will be established as a
great central wool storage center in
the west, with the probability that
Omaha will be an auxiliary warehouse
point. This was decided by the Na
tional Woolgrowers' convention which
Fred W. Gooding of Shoshone, was
re-elected president, George 8. Walker
of Cheyenne, was again chosen as sec
retary, and Lewis Penwell of Helena,
was once more selected as treasurer.
A. J. Knollin of Chicago succeeded
Joseph E. Wing of Mechanicsburg,
Ohio, as eastern vice president, and
A. J. Delfelter of Laramie, Wyo., suc
ceeded Dr. J. M. Wilson of Wyoming
as western vice president.
Resolutions were adopted as fol
"We are unalterably opposed to any
reduction of the present tariff on wool
and hides because of the fact that any
such reduction threatens the life of
the industry and the prosperity of the
"In support of our contention for the
maintenance of the present tariff on
wool and its by-products, we indorse
the final statement submitted by the
Honorable Theodore Justice of the
committee on ways and means of the
house of representatives, December 21,
1908, and also the testimony submit
ted by the woolgrowers before the
committee on December 11.
"We heartily indorse and recommend
for your consideration the central
market now being established in the
city of Chicago, in accordance wit'
plans submitted by your committee,
and appeal to woolgrowers at large to
give this movement their earnest and
energetic consideration and substantial
"That we express our hearty appre
ciation of all that has been done for
the industry in the provision of wool
warehouses and storage plans in the
city of Omaha, and of the efforts of
the Omaha Wool & Storage company
in establishing that enterprise: that
we further commend to the stock
holders and board of directors of the
National Wool Warehouse company of
Chicago, when organized, the earnest
consideration of a plan for the taking
over of the Omaha Wool & Storage
company, as an auxiliary to the cen
tral warehouse at Chicago if found
practicable and of similar extension of
the business from time to time at
other suitable locations.
Oppose a Change.
"We reiterate our opposition to any
change in the law governing the pub
lic lands of the United States, save
only that which shall promote the in
terest and welfare of the bona fide
"We are unqualifiedly in favor of the
preservation of the public forest, and
of the creation of forest reserves out
of timbered areas within which timber
may be cut only under government
supervision, without, however, giving
our approval to the plan of imposing
the burden of forest preservation upon
the livestock industries.
"We have in the past maintained
that grazing fees on the forest reserves
have been excessive; we appreciate
however, the recent action of the for
est service in its reduction of the
fees charged for grasing privileges
and we earnestly urge upon the for
estry service the necessity for further
reduction in such grasing fees.
"We commend to the forestry serv
ice the practice of extending the per
iod of grasing permits to five years,
wherever it is possible, thereby giv
ing a greater degree of permanency
to the industry.
"We commend the work of the for
estry department in the construction
of roads, trails, bridges and telephone
lines, pledge our earnest co-operation
in the maintenance of the same.
"We commend as unwarranted the
practice of the forestry service in im
posing, without a trial of any charac
ter, burdensome fines upon grazers up
on forest reserves, under the pretext
of demands for damages consequent
upon a violation of the regulations for
trespass accompanied by the threat
that in default of payment within a
brief period the permit of the alleged
offender will be cancelled and his stock
driven off the reserve.
"We urge upon congress the neces
sity for the enactment of a law that
will empower the secretary of agricul
ture to appoint proper forest service
inspectors who shall be vested with
the power to summon witnesses, ad
minster oaths and take testimony in
the investigation of any alleged wrong
in the national forest management."
The resolution favors the creation
of state conservation commissions by
legislative enactment, with power and
authority to take up the question of
the preservation of natural resources
by the states for the benefit of their
citizens, approves the splendid work
of the bmrea of soalmi" iadstry in
the eradication of scabbies in the
flocks of the west; commend the work
of the department of agriculture in its
investigation of poisonous plants, and
in all its valuable work for the bene
fit of the livestock industries, and the
farmer of the country and recommend
to congress liberal appropriations for
the further maintenance of such work.
It is also recomnmended that the
president and board of control of the
association shall appoint a committee
to go to Washington, representing this
association, whenever they deem nec
essary for the purpose of presenting to
congress and the departments the con
ditions and necessity of the wool grow.

correspondence submitted to this con
Sention that the United States forester
has found occasion for exceptions in
the action or considerations hereto

The telegraphic correspondence re
ferred to in the resolutions includes
messages supplemental to the tele
grams which recently passed between
Secretary Walker of the National
association and Chief Forester Pinchot,
in which the latter said in response
to an invitation to attend the Poca
tello convention that until such time
as the association gave assurance of
a desire to discuss national forest
matters on broader and more unselfish
grounids than heretofore, he would not
feel justified in accepting an invita
tion to attend such convention.
Secretary Walker responded as fol
"The national association will be
ready in convention at Pocatello or at
any other place to discuss matters
pertaining to the protection of the
national forests and conditions as they
actually exist for the best interest of
the forests, the state in which they are
located and the people in general."
To this Mr. Pinchot answered:
"Situation remains unchanged. Un
til I have additional evidence through
formal action of the National Wool
growers' association showing an earn

heretofore, I must decline to atttend

On a final showdown tonight on the
Chicago wool storage proposition it
was found by the signatures to the
Chicago contract that they were four
and a half million pounds short of the
required 25,000,000 pounds necessary to
insure the Chicago market. At a
meeting of those already signed up
tonight, it was found that it will be
impossible to secure pledges of the
required amount among delegates
present at the Pocatello convention
and a campaign will at once be inaug
urated on the outside. Wool buyers
from Chicago and St. Louis have been
active during the convention in buy

Many woolrrowers, heretofore consid

Chicago plan have contracted their
clips to private buyers, attracted by

W. A. CLARK SAYS
J. C. Phillips, auditor of the Clark
properties in Montana, is a visitor
in the city. He brings good news
regarding the electric railway, work
upon which is to start just as soon
as weather conditions permit. "1
have a letter from Senator Clark.",
said Mr. Phillips yesterday to a
Missoulian reporter, "in which he
expresses great satisfaction over
the way Missoula people responded
to the electric railway proposition.
Mr. Clark says it is specially grati
fying to him that the vote was so
nearly unanimous and he states that
the work of constructing the road
will be inaugurated just as soon as
the weather is right for the work.
Mr. Clark says that he wishes to
show his appreciation of the man
ner in which Missoula received his
proposition and he believes the best
way to do that is to build the road
promptly. There will be no time
lost in the construction. Mr. Whar
ton has already ordered the ma
terial and he was yesterday prepar
ing the specifications for the cars
for the Missoula line. These will be
the best and most modern that can
be bought and the order will be
placed as soon as Mr. Wharton de
cides upon the details of the speci
fications. I cannot say as to the
date when work will start, but it
will be just as early as the condl
tion of ground and weather make
track construction in the streets
practicable. And you may rest as
sured that the line will be as good
as any in the country.
WILL GIVE SENATE
PRESIDENT TO MAKE COMPLETE
REPORT ON EXPENDITURE
OF ARMY FUNDS.
Washington, Jan. 16.-In an ex
change of views between President
Roosevelt and several senate lead
ers at the White House today the
fact was brought out that the presl
dent intends to send to the senate a
full report in response to the Foraker
resolution, calling for a statement of
expenditures under the $3,000,000 was
deficiency act of March, 1890. It
was stated that all payments will be
shown, but that in some instances
the names of the persons receiving
money from the fund will be with
held and the information given p'i
vately to the senate. The reason for
this is that the expenditures have
been for procuring military informa
tion abroad, and it is regarded at the
White House as a matter which
should not be made public.
The report, however, will be suf
elcient to show the character of the
expenditures, and if further inorma
tlon is desired by the senate, then the
responsibility for making it public
will rest upon the senate.

LURE 10T HIS DEATH
BY A FORGED
RESPONDS TO NOTE FROM 8UP
POSED SICK FRIEND AND
special to The Daily Missoullan.
Helena, Jan. 16.-Lured to his death
by a note supposedly from a close
friend, John Hancock, lies tonight in
an undertaking bstabllshment, the
victim of a plot which is puzzling the
authorities. The.crime is one of the
most mysterious in the history of this
city and one of the most brutal.
According to the story of Mrs. Han
cock, last night a messenger, whom
she cannot describe brought a note to
the Hancock home. Mr. Hancock read
it and said George Sutherland, secretary
of the miners union here, was at St.
John's hospital and wanted him to
come around and see him. According
to the wife, Hancock put the note in
the stove, put on his overcoat and
left the house.
This morning one of the sisters at
St. John's looked out of the window
and seeing a dark object lying on the
walk a few feet from the building,
told the Janitor to see what it was.
The Janitor found it was the body of

NEWSPAPER MEN SUBPOENAED
TO TESTIFY REGARDING
SUMMONSES ARE ISSUED
Six Washington Correspondents and a
News Dealer Are Ordered to Appear
Before Grand Jury This Week-Be
lieved That Government Has Started
Proceedings Against Publishers.
Washington. Jan. 16.--Six Washing
ton correspondents of out-of-town pa
pore and a local news bureau were
today subpoenaed to appear next week
before federal grand jurors and testi
fy, presumably In connection with
statements appearing In their publi
cations bearing 3n the Panama canal
purchase. So far as it has been pos
slble to ascertain, these were the
only ones cited: Otto Carmichael,
Charles S. Ambert and E. Jesse Con
way of the New York World; James
Hornaday, IndianapolIs News; Jere
miah Matthe\vs, New York Sun; Har
ris M. Crist, Brooklyn Eagle, and
William Smith, , newsboy of Wash
ington, engaged in selling New York
papers. With the exception of Mr.
Crist, who is commanded to go to
New York and present himself today
before the federal *grand jury, the
parties are directed to appear before
the federal grand jury of the District
of Columbia next Tuesday.
The World men, also were directed
to bring with them files of the paper
for September, October, November
and December. 1908, "in the case of the
United States versus the Press Pub
lishing company," publishers of the
New York World. There is no doubt
that the subpoenas will have to do
with a suit for libel which it is be
lieved has been brought by the gov
ernment In New York against the
World. The publishers of the New
York Sun and the Indlanapolis News,
Mr. Laffan and Delavan Smith, were
denounced by the president in a let
ter dated December 1, last, to William
Dudley Foulke. In his annual mes
sage to congress of December 15, re
garding the charges of corruption, the
president announced that the attor
ney general had under his conlidera
tion the form in which proceedings
for libel against Joseph Pulitzer, pub
lisher of the New York World, should
be brought. Nowhere In the annals
of the government has such action
before been taken as the government
suing for criminal libel.
The president in his message was
most emphatic in saying that it should
not be left to a private citizen to en
ter the suit, and was particular to
state that he did not believe "we
should concern ourselves with the par
ticular individuals who wrote the ly
Ing and libelous editorials, articles
from correspondents or articles in the
news columns. The real offender is
Joseph Pulitzer, editor and proprie
tor of the World."
It therefore is inferred that the
correspondents were summoned as
witnesses and not with the ultimate
idea of making them co-defendants.
All efforts to get any information
regarding the statute under which
the suit has been brought failed.
Prevent a "Leak."
That every effort was made to pre
vent a "leak" in New York before
the subpoena was served, is evidenced
by the fact that.Mr. Crist's subpoena
was directed to "John" Crist, the in
dorsement later being written upon it
that "John" was a fictitious name.
The fact that Mr. Crist has been or
dered to appear in New York is re
garded as evidence that itf any pur
pose had been entertained to bring
such an action in New York state
courts it had been abandoned.
Grand Jury proceedings in the
District of Columbia are always con
ducted with the greatest secrecy.
Additional interest is lent to the
case by the presence here of William
Nelson Cromwell, who represented
the canal company in the negotia
tions with the government. Several
attempts were made to reach him
at his hotel, but all callers were in
formed that he was not in.
Baltimore, Jan. 16.-Attorney Gener
al Charles J. Bonaparte tonight gave
the following in response to a request
for a statement in relation to the can
al libel suits:
"I expect to be in a position to make
a full and clear statement on the sub
ject mentioned within a very few days.
At this moment, however, I cannot find
anything for publication which would
be of any public interest; I must,
therefore, asky you, good friends of the
press, to exercise the great virtue of
patience just now, promising to soon

Glenwood Springs, at 9:38 o'clock lek
night. The dead:
While nothing official is given ot
as to the cause of the wreck, It I
said to have been due to a mislnder
standing of orders on the part at
Engineer Gustaf Olson of the passe
ger train. Olson, however, cl.etMla I
understood his Instructions pe8geitl,
but that he misread his watch, tomu
encroaching on the time of the freight
train,' which was being drawn by two
locomotives, the first of which was is
charge of his brother, Dig Olban.
When news of the catastrophe
reached Glenwood Springs every avail
able physician and nurse In the city
was pressed into service and a relief
train was soon on a scene never to be
forgotten in its gruesomeness. Body
after body was taken from the wreck
age and for a time it appeared as
though the heartrending task would
never be completed. The body of a
woman was found lying a dosen yards
from the wreckage, close to the banks
of Grand river, both arms missing and
otherwise horribly mangled.
A trainload of 30 wounded and
blody men and women, who barely
escaped with their lives, arrived in
Glenwood Springs at 7 o'clock this
morning. Carriages and wagonettes
were waiting at the Rio Grande depot
when the train came to a stop. The
wounded were taken to the county bos
pital and to the sanitarium and when
the cots and wards had been filled
rooms were secured in the hotels ad
Glenwood Springs for the maimed.
It was found at an early hour that
there was a shortage of surgeons and
only first aid could be administered
until late this afternoon surgeons from
all the surrounding cities began to
pour into Glenwood Springs. A Wom
an died from her injuries on the is
lief train while on her way here.
It is expected that at least a doses
or more, who were brought here, will
die from their wounds.
Train No. 5 was made up of an en
gine and tender, a baggage oar, a
smoking car, followed by a chair ear,
tourist sleeper and a full complement
of Pullman sleepers and a dining car.
As the bodies were taken from the
ruins they were laid side by side on
