He Has Made T\o
Decision About
Pdnceton, X. J., January 10.—President
elect Wilson la en route tonight for Chi
cago, where he will address the Commer
cial club tomorrow7 night. He left here
at 5:47 o'clock.
The engagement to deliver an address
before the Commercial club was accepted
by Governor Wilson long before election.
The speech probably will be the last he
[ will deliver outside of New7 Jersey be
foro lie becomes President. Returning,
be will leave Chicago at 12:40 p. m. Sun
day, reaching Trenton Monday, when Ire
will speak at a luncheon to be given the
New Jersey electors who meet that day.
With the New Jersey legislature com
manding his daily attention, it is ex
pected the President-elect will have com
paratively little time for national affairs.
Mr. Wilson, however, has received a
great deal of advice in the conferences
he already has had with democratic lead
ers, but he reiterated today that he had
not made a single decision on any subject
and added that he had not even made
a tentative selection as to wrho will be
in the cabinet. He made it clear that he
intends to pick men for their serviceabil
ity rather than in reward for political ac
tivities in his behalf.
The governor will continue his confer
ences with members of Congress and his
views on the policy to pursue at tlie
extra session will be enunciated in the
special message which he will send to
Congress. Ho will write it immediately
after his inauguration.

Chicago, January 10.—President-elect
Wilson's visit to Chicago tomorrow and
Sunday will be quiet. He will leave the

meet him and escort him to the home of
David B. Jones. There he will remain
until time for him to attend the dinner
given by the club in the evening. At
the dinner lie will be seated betw'cen

The President-elect will spend Saturday
night at tho Jones residence and on Sun
day will be the guest of Clyde M. Carr,
president of the Commercial club, at his
home. Owing to Mr. Wilson's limited
time here he will accept no invitation ex
cept that of the club.
Special preparations have been made
for bis protection. Several motor cars
filled with policemen will guard him when
ever he rides about the city. Chief Mc

Steamship Men Explain Reason Trade
With South and Central America
Does Not Prosper
Washington, January 10. Most of the
steamship lines trading between t lie
United States and ports in South g.nd
Central America. South Africa and Aus
tralia, use identical freight rates agreed
to in conference, according to shipping
men who testified today before the House
committee investigating the so-called
shipping trust. The witnesses were Pauli
Gottnell, president of Punch, Ldye & Co.,
fi eight agents in New York for a num
ber of large steamship companies; Paul
W. Gerhart, New York agent for the
Prince line, and W illiam 1C. Halm, New
York agent for the Houston lu*e.
AL the witnesses insisted that no re
bates were given on outgoing cargoes
from America by their companies or
those associated with them in rate con
ferences, but it was not denied that re
bates probably were given on cargoes
coming from South Africa or South Amer
Mr. Gerhart was the first witness, lie
testified his line had an understanding
with lines doing business between New
York and South Africa. In the 1-aPlata
trade he declared there were no rebates
and no division of territory. He said the
time was when New York agents of the
lines were permitted to make any rate
on certain articles. He said now' they
were made in London.
He asked when the change was made by
Mr. Humphrey. He said two years ago.
Speaking of the South African trade,
witness said he believed there was no
pooling, but be bad no doubt that tlie
London offices saw to It that each line
got Its proportion of the trade by regu
lating the trips of the respective steam
Witness testified that with the four or
five largest New York exporters to La
Plata special contracts were entered into
Ivy the lines, and smaller exporters were
then given the same* rates.
Representative Alexander suggested this
pn.vented competition in rates. Mr. Ger
hart said rate cutting was a most unfor
tunate plight. He said no peison could
run a steamer unless on the same basis
for the big and small. He Sjjid there
nsus. be no cutting.
William 10. Halm, New York agent
for the Houston line, testified that a
London conference controlled the New
York trade to South Africa.
Freight Is Pooled
“I may say 1 know that the freight
is pooled,” testified lfalm.
Subject to that conference were the
Houston line, the Prince line, the Han
son line, the*Union Clay line, and the
American African lines in a separate
conference. He said not an American!
ship cared for th • Mouth African bus
Chairman Alexander asked if the
Houston line was in any agreement
regulating freight or passenger^traffle
between the United States tmd tjje
Plata. Rates for this trade, the wit
ness said, were made in New York at
conferences among representatives of
the various steamship lines although no
written agreements were entered into.
He said the conferences were held once
jin every seven days.
j In fljflng rates the witness declared
that an effort was made to keep them
on a parity with rates from Germany
and England. The agent declared that
his company had not given rebates on
export cargoes from the United States
for many years. He said he knew
nothing about rates on cargoes from
Argentine to this county. He further
ndded he knew from correspondence
that rebate arrangements existed.
Asked if there were any agreements
between railroads and steamship com
panies as to through rates. Mr. Halm
said that as far as he knew no such
agreements ever were entered into.
“Experience has shown,” declared Mr,
Halm, “that there Is only one way of
getting service, and that is through
rebate and pooling.&i rangements. These
methods are recognized as lawful by
I the governments of England and Ger
! many."
Pooling arrangements were neces
sary, he said, because no one ship
owner-could operate a sufficient num
ber of steamers to keep up a contin
uous service between New York and
! South America.
Rebates, he continued, were given to
hold shippers and prevent them from
taking cargo space in tramp steam
“Your only reason for not giving
rebates on cargoes out of New York
is that you think it would conflict with
the anti-trust law?”, asked Represen
tative Hardy.
“That is true,” replied the witness.
South American Trade
Explaining why his company had
never established lines between gulf
ports and South America, Mr. Halm
said lumber, the chief commodity
shipped south from the gulf usually
went in full cargo lots and tHat ship
pers themselves could charter vessels
as cheaply as the steamship lines. The
real reason why trade between the
United States and South America has
not been developed more rapidly, he
Insisted, was the natural tendency of
Germans, Spaniards and Englishmen,
located In South America, to trade with
their home countries.
“Would a subsidy to American ship
owners overcome this tendency?” asked
Representative Hardy.
“Absolutely it would- not,” the witness
Paul Gottheil, president of Funcli, Ed ye
& Co., a firm acting as freight agent for
a number of largo steamship lines, in
cluding the Hamburg-American line, the
Scandinavian-American line and the Uni
ted States Shipping company, told the
committee that Mr. Gerhardt had made a
substantially accurate statement of con-1
ditions in the trade between Brazil and j
the United States.
Mr. Gottheil declared that the Pan-1
American Steamship company was a fail- j
ure. not because of efforts on the part
of companies in the rate agreements to j
throttle it, but because the people behind j
t he new enterprise did not “know their j
business and paid a profit of 80 per cent
to ship owners for the vessels they
Attempt by Democrats to Compromise
Matter Meets With Failure.
F’ight Will Be Renewed
Washington, January ^10.—Efforts by
democratic Senate leaders to make an i
agreement with the republican forces for
a joint committee to go over President
Taft’s recent appointments and select
certain acts that should Vie confirmed by j
the .Senate, met with failure today.
Attempt at a compromise was the re
sult of a fneeting of the special commit
tee appointed by the democratic caucus
in December, to evolve a method of hand
ling the hundreds of appointments that
have been sent in by the President since
December 15. headers informally pro
posed to tlie republicans today that five
members be selected by each party to'
take up the task of “weeding out” the
pending nominations. A number of re
publicans were called together to con
sider the proposal, and promptly re
jected it.
The outcome of the failure, will be a
renewal of the fight between the two
parties next week. It is expected that
an executive session of the Senate will
be held Tuesday or Wednesday. The
republican forces then will insist tha*
nominations be taken up in their reg
ular order and that no discrimination
be shown against any of the Taft nomi
nations. A conference of democrats will
be held tomorrow to determine what ac
tion shall be taken.
Republicans declared today there would
be no attempt to filibuster against the
democrats or to keep the Senate in con
tinuous executive session; but an attempt
would be made at once to force an is-|
sue with the democrats as to the method
of procedure upon the various appoint
“To submit the question of nominations
to a committee would require the holding :
of a republican caucus," said Senator |
Smoot tonight. “That was not practicable ;
and we concluded for that and other rea- j
sons that the preferable plan was to al
low the nominations to come before the
entire Senate in the usual way. We
shall insist that the calendar be taken up
in the order in which the nominations
The refusal of the republicans to make!
any compromise upon the Taft appoint
ments will have the effect of halting the
action that the democratic leaders had
agreed to support, for the confirmation

Iior!nnd Asks Investigation of Conduct
of Judge Van Valkenburg and
Judge Pollock in Petition
Washington, January 10.—The lnvestige
tion of the conduct of two federal judges
Judge Van Valkenburg of the western
district of Missouri and Judge Pollock of
the district of Kansas, was asked for
today in petitions of the common council
of Kansas City. Mo., presented to the
House by Representative Borland of Mis
The resolutions charge that Judge Pol
lock and Judge Van Valkenburg ap
pointed receivers for the Kansas Natural
Gas company, which it is alleged, is con
trolled by the United Gas Improvement
company of Philadelphia, who were
friendly to the interests, design and pur
pose.” of those two companies. A fur
ther charge against Judge Pollock is
that he Issue an order to the receivers,
directing them to charge an increased
price for gas delivered to the Kansas City
Gas company.
The resolutions charge thaf the act’ons
of the judges is an unfair exercise of
judicial power and destructive of the
fundamental rights of the people. It is
further charged that Judge Pollock is |
depriving the people of Kansas City of
light and fuel and that he, is being “aided !
and abetted” in his purpose by Judge
Van Valkenbuigh.
The Kansas Natural Gas company was
a pipe line company and furnished nat
ural gas from Oklahoma to the Kansas
City Gas company, which distributed it
for 27 cents per 10*4) cubic feet. Both com
panies are alleged to be owned and coo
trelied by the United Gas Improvement
company of Philadelphia, which, it is said,
also controls the Welsbach 'Street I.lght
ing company of America upon whose ap
plication the appointment of receivers was
• made by Judge Van Valkenburg.
The Kansas Natural Gas company
claimed the natural gas in Oklahoma was
becoming exhausted and that a higher
price should be charged. The resolutions
declares that testimony taken in n ju
dicial proceeding demonstrated that an
adequate supply of natural gas still was
On October 9. 1912, accordiiefifto the res
olution, the Kansas Natural Gas com
pany obtained from Judge Pollock the
appointment of three receivers. Tire res
olution claims ?he application was made
to force the consumers to pay a much
greater* price for their gas and that the
design and purpose of the receivership
was so plain that Judge Pollock could not
| possibly have been ignorant thereof.
On December 30, 1912, Judge PoPock
made an order directing the receivers of
the Kansas Natural Gas company to re
fuse to sell gas to the Kansas City Gas
company unless they received at least 31
cents pc* 1000 cubic feet.
Drop New' Haven Probe
Washington, January 10.—Congressional
investigation of the New Haven Grand
Trunk traffic deal In New England will
not be recommended by the House rules
committee, which has held several hear
ngs upon the subject.
ft became known today that the federa1.
government’s prosecution of the railroad
officers concerned was one of the reasons
for the determination of the committee.
Representative O'Shaughnessy’s resolu
tion to authorize an inquiry by a special
committee has been before the rules
committee since before the Christmas hol
idays, when hearings were heard on a re
quest for its immediate consideration.
Several members of the rules committee
oppose under any cercumstanees an in
; vestigation of the New Haven situation
unless it is conducted by one of the regu
larly constituted committees. The rules
committee decision does not, it Is said,
end the possibility of a congressional in
vestigation. Representative O’Shaughn

Weather Conditions
Birmingham, January 10.—(7 p. m.)—
The pressure has been generally low
throughout the country west of the Mis
sissippi during the past 24 hours, except
for a small area of relatively high baro
meter over the northern Rockies. East
of the Mississippi the pressure has been
generally high, bu^. such is the position
of the storm centre, that the wind circu
lation has been from the ocean to the
land, and the unusual condition of general
rain and higher temperatures with high
barometer has been experienced. Except
for the northwest, where there are tem
| peratures far below' zero, due to the ln
! fluence of the high barometer and north
west winds, the weather west of the Mis
sissippi has been characterized by rising
temperatures, and more or less general
precipitation. Rain has fallen through
out. the Pacific northwest, and also In
tiie great central basin, while snow lias
occurred in many portions of the Rocky
mountain plateau.
In the southern states, cloudy weather,
with quite general rain, has prevailed
during the past 24 hours. Temperatures
have risen from 2 to 18 degrees and are
now about normal for the season general
ly. The general cloudiness and unset
tled weather has been explained as due
largely to the wind circulation from the
warmer ocean to the land, hence the light
amounts of rain reported generally. As
tlie area of low barometer, now over the
southern Rockies, advances further east
ward Its influence will tend to cause
heavier rainfalls, with the southeast
winds. It is expected that rain will lie
general In this section, Saturday and
probably Sunday, and that temperatures
will continue moderate.

mended that two carriers be sent from
the Birmingham postoffice direct. This
will be done until the government de
cides what sort of a station to put at
Boyles. • ^
Before these carriers can handle the
mail, however. It will be necessary to
get up some sort of a directory of the
inhabitants and Postmaster Aldrich will
undertake to do this with his carriers.
The houses must be numbered and the
streets must be named,, and it Is hoped
that the residents of Boyles will co
operate with the postmaster so that
this can be done at once.
