SHAW FILES STATE MENT O' OBJECTIONS TO ACTION OF CONGRESS. New York, Jan. 28.-In a statement asted tonight Quincy A. Shaw. Ipre.i lent of the Culumet & Hel.ha Mining eIo)pany of Michigan, "regrets and o resents" the 'fesolution recentlY w Idopted by congress for the investi gation of the Michigan copper strike. t Mr. hasw says that the action pro- I posed would prolong the "semblance" ci .at the strike. n The investigation is not dcsrable, Mr. Shaw asserted, "because thel terms of d:rectlon which congress n gives in the resolution are unfairly aimed at one side of the controversy And excludes from. * * investiga `ion the notorious disorders and bloodshed inspired by the leaders of the strike." The co-operation of Mr. Shaw is promised the committee. Thie inln',tLi gators are offered every facility tc 'ascertain facts, hoping that "in the 'nterest of justice * * * the com-. mittee will familiarize the American people with the character and meth ods of the Western Federation of Miners." S"No charge has been made which the courts are not competent to in vestigate," the statement says. "Now congress. prooP0es to abandon its functions as a legislative body and in vestigates as a grand jury." DOCTOR ACQUITTED. .

With the finest midwinter display of apples ever made in Montana and with a program which the president yesterday morning characterized as the best which had ever been ar ranged, the Montana Horticultural so ciety is well started with its 17th an nual session, The opening-day at tendance was good; the interest was manifestly greater than usual; the number of new participants was im pressively large. The clou:ds of a week rolled away for the day of be ginning and a glorious 'winter pun smiled out of such a sky as only western Montana knows. Every con diltion was ideal for the success and enjoyment of this important meeting. President J. C. Wood called the meeting to order on schedule time In Masonic hall. Harold H. Griffis, pas tor of the Christian church, made the Invocation prayer. He was, as usual, graceful in his greeting and extended the freedom of Ihe city to the vie-- o itors, together with a cordial invita- y tion to visit all local institutions which interest them and to ask for d what they want, if they don't find it readily. W. B. Itarlan of Como, responded e on behalf of the society. Mr. Harlan 1 with the rights and prerogatives of a charter, member, reviewed the history P of the society in the ramblings over o the state which it has made in con- c I nection with its policy ori holding no e two successive sessions In the same place. He ppoke of the men .who 1 have been at the head of the society v and of others who have contributed " by their efforts to Its succes. Mr, Harlan said the society is always gladt when the time comes for it to meet in Missoula and he forecasted a success ful session this year. He said The f Missoulian was wrong in the statd ment that the society was born tri Stevensville. He said the organization was mqde in Missoula. President Wood 'then, made his offi cial address, which was a departure from the usual- formal speech from I the throne in that, ittook up practic.i & e questions and .dealt very lightly with g generalities. Co-opiration was the st theme of President Wood's address. "e He urged It strongly. The horticul Ns turlsts must work together In making oe their business a duciess. They must i Lt get together and keep together In the )r maintenance of. a high standard for on the fruit which .is' shipped from this to slato; tiHy ittust adapt thell. prCohqeitj to the conditions Which 'have Qd e veloped here locally; they must ape bialise in the varieties ; which have been p#oved to 'be peculiarly adapted to the 'eoditions of soil 'ond caliate' 'Y hlich orfat. here.

Co-operation is the. great need of C fruitgrowers-co-operation in com batting foes and co-operation in marketing fruit. This was the key note of the 4ddPclq and discussions before the state horticultural society 1 yesterday. There was perfect unanimity of oplinon upon this t score. The annual gathering of the fruit men starts off with a vim; the prospects are excellent for a suc-r cessful session. The program is specially interesting this year, and there is much interest manifested by the members and visitors.
