NORRISSEES PACT
AS ONLY SAVIOR
OF PULP INDUSTRY
Publishers "Envoy Tells
Finance Committee Can
ada Wants Factories.
A vast collection of Information- bear
ing upon the tariff, wood pulp, and
paper Industry was today held before
the Senate Finance Comrnlttee by John
Norrls, representative of the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association.
"Cheap paper and the retention of the
print paper industry In the United
States," said Norrls, "can be obtained
by the adoption of the paper clause of
the reciprocity treaty, and in no other
way. The Canadlaa provinces which
control pulp wood are trying to forco
American paper mills to move to the
other side of the boundary. By pro
hibiting the exportation of pulp wood
from provincial land, they believe they
can 6tarve out the American paper
makers whose domestic supplies are
nearly exhausted.
"In 1909 Canadian provinces offered to
allow their pulp wood to be shipped to
the United States if paper manufac
turers In Canada who export paper
made In Canada should not be subjected
to a heavy tariff.
Tried Bulldozing.
"The American Senate, at the instiga
tion of former Senator Hale, and ex
treme standpatters among the paper
makers, undertook to bulldoze the Cana
dian provinces. They provoked an ugly
complication, to which the paper clause
of the reciprocity treaty offers the only
Immediate and promising solution.
"The provincial authorities show
great determination. They believe they
have put the American paper makers
at their mercy and they propose to
bring the paper Industry to Canada
upon terms dictated by them.
"Newspaper publishers who pay $55,
000.000 per annum for their print paper
want to broaden their market, but they
are opposed to the efforts of the Can
adian provinces to force the paper in
dustry to Canada. If, however, Amer
ican paper makers continue their pres
ent course of combination, restriction of
production, and limiting of stocks on
hand and increases of prices, whereby
they pass along the course of all blun
dering methods to the consumer to the
extent of J6.000.000 a year, it Is con
ceivable that these consumers may ask
that print paper be admitted free of
duty without condition.
Much of It Imported.
"Nearly 40 per cent qf the wood pulp
which we now use as the raw material
of cheap paper comes to us from
abroad. What unbiased legislator con
sidering this situation solely from the
standpoint of supply and demand jean
permit the present situation to continue,
much less to aggravate It by promoting
reprisals from those provinces of Cana
da whjch are In a position to dictate
terms?
"Tr-e CanadlaTTs are keen. They are
well aware of their position and It is
folly to indulge In threats or to sub
ject the consumers of paper to the lw
astrous consequences of such a trade
wir as the rejection of this paper cjause
v.ould entail."

Point Hilt Stocks Were Firmer
being on guard for the possibility of
turning a point on the expected and
rather belated reaction.
Missouri Pacific was sold down under
aggressive pressure, and this had some
effect In producing softness In 'the list,
encouraging the bears. "
The Government crop report was
awaited with Interest, more particularly
by speculators Interested In cotton, as
It will show the damage to Atlantic
State crops from the long continued
drought.
Close observers of the trading ex
pressed the opinion that the buying
was better than the selling.
Many of the professional bears did
their best to bring about an old-fashioned
Tuesday break in the leaders, so
that there might bo some irregularity,
but they found so many buying orders
on the scale down that they quit.
One group of stocks held very firmly
and made net gains In spite of the
weakness elsewhere. The -Hills ad
vanced nearly a point, and neld about
half of the gain. Copper and Smelt
er gained , and both held the advance
stubbornly. Locomotive rose a point
and refused to budge backward. In
tcrboro was higher. The losses were
