A Petition to Ouat the Present Northern
Chicago, Dec. 27.—The Northern Pa
cific Railroad company, by Silas W.
Pettit of Philadelphia, general couneel,
has prepared and may file tomorrow at
Milwaukee, before Judge Jenkins of the
United States court, a petition for the
removal of the present receivers of the
road, Thomas F. Oakes, Henry C. Payne
and Henry C. Rouse. The bill covers the
same ground as the Ives committee re
port of about a year ago and declares
Oakes as president of the company ap
pointed R. G. Raleton president of the
Farmers Loan and Trust company of
New York, chairman of tha finance oom
mittee of the road. At thia time, it ia
asserted, the line was in good financial
condition and had $2,000,000 cash
in the treasury. The Oakes-Raleton
board managed to increase tbe in
terest charges for branch lines from
$26,000,000 to $86,000,000 inside of one
year for the acquisition of properties,
which, with one small exception, have
never paid the coet of operation.
Tba petition further charges that tbe
officers and directors were themselves
interested in selling properties to the
Northern Pacific company at exorbitant
profit to themselves.
The petition asks that receivers be
appointed in whose management the
stockholders and pnblic have confi
dence, bo tbat thay can formulate and
carry out a plan of reorganization
whereby the company's debts can be
paid and it be restored to a solvent

stood by the pool and by my stock, and
when it went down I Bimply could not

It is a well known fact tbat Heilner
had most implicit faitn in McLeod. and
this caused him to take such heavy in

he had invested about $325,000 in the

The Contractor's Version of
By the 'Associated Press.
Maiuson, Wis., Dec. 27.—The leading
plaint; ffa in the roater conspiracy suit
againat Governor Peck et al. ware ex
amined before a court commissioner, as
adverse fitnesses, by the attorneys for
the defendants today. All three of the
members of tbe printing firm of Tracy,
Gibba & Co., which advanced the
$20,000 paid to the official roster people
in tbe governor's office, were examined,
but the busi ueas of tbe concern in the
matter was done by the senior partner,
W. A. Tracy, and in his testimony alone
are brought oust the details of the secret
printing con tracts.
Tracy aaid he first beard of tbe roster
contract albotut March Ist, when Private
Secretary Clark cent for bim and told
him of the-roister job and showed bim
a sample of the Illinois roster, and
wanted hioa to figure on tbe first cost of
a similar book of abont 2000 pages.
Clark told Ism the governor bad already
figured on itiaa a printer and knew what
tbe coat was. He also had figures
from Chic.tgo, but would prefer
to have the work done here,
even if it cost a little more. The bind
ing would coat 17 centa in Chicago, but
Tracy wae to figure it at 20 centa. Clark
told him 35,00O»to 40,000' would probably
be needed, but lie should figure on 25,-
OOOsets, and by Clark's giving the figures
at $1.90 per vol «me, there would be a
profit of about $i} 7,000 on tbat number.
Tracy testified that on April 26th ha
paid Clark $20,iT00 in the governor's
office. George Dotw, Clark, McFail and
himself were prestwit when the payment
waa made. On tlbe day the contract
waa revoked, Tracy and George and Roe
Dow went to tbe governor's office to see
Clark about tbe matter. Clark was
busy, but request ed tbem to call in
the afternoon. At that time Clark
announced that at a meeting in the
morning, at whicb Governor .Peck, Sen
ator Vilaa, Senator Bash ford and Gen
eral Dow were present, it was decided to
revoke tbe contract. He assured them
they would get tbeir money back in
about ten days, and earnestly urged
thai tbey keep quiet about it. Tbey
told him all they wanted'was to get
their money back.

A RADICAL MEASURE.
Senator Chandler's BiSl tor the Hemoo-
etlaattoa of Oliver.
W v miing ton, Dec. 27 - —Benator Chand
ler (Rep.) of New Hampshire, is about
to come forward w'»h a scheme looking
to the ramonetizattion of silver. The
senator proposes ve\ry radical methods
of bringing tbia abVut. He contem
plates trie introduction in theaenate,
after the reconvening of congress, of a
resolution which he vtfill advocate, ask
ing tha United States to invite all the
countries of the world, eastern, western
and southern, toatteud a monetary con
ference. Tbe new features of tbe
proposed conference is tbat it
shall not be restricted to the
European gold standard countries,
bat shall include the S.»uth American
and oriental silver standard countries.
1 Moreover, the invitations to tbe confer
ence are to contain tbe declaration of
tbe United States that tbe purpose of
the conference shall be the establish
ment-and maintenance of an interna
tional ratio, witb tbe specific declaration
added tbat if such a ratio cannot be
agreed npon it will be the purpose of the
United States to adopt a single standard,
and tbat standard not gold, but silver.
By taking this extreme position, not as
yet advocated in congress even by the
radical silver men, Chandler thinks the
banda of the gold standard countries
.not now trading extensively with the
western world can be forced.

HE FEARS FREE RAISINS.
A. R. lintier Leavea for "Waahlngton to
Klght the Wilson Tariff Bill.
San Francisco Chronicle ; A.B.But
ler, tbe wealthy raisin grower of Fresno,
will leave for Washington this week to
begin in earnest the tight against tha
reduction of the duty on raisins proposed
by the Wilson bill. Mr. Butler stumped
the atate for Cleveland a yoar ago, but
wben it cornea to a plain business prop
osition he is shrewd enough to see on
which side his bread is buttened. When
on the stump Mr. Butler is tea enthusi
astic tariff reformer of tbe Jefferson-
Jackson-Cleveland type, but when be
surveys bis vine clad acres near Fresno
threatend by the visitation of a tariff
bill be sinks hia individuality as a poli
tician and looks at the matter from a
plain business point of view.
That is why Mr. Butler is going to
Washington thie week.
Mr. Butler regards aa gross injustice
the proposition to reduce the duty on
Smyrna and Spanish laiFfins .from 2>4
centa to 11.,l 1 ., cents a pound. Trie differ
ence between ocean freights from En
pean points to tbe Atlantic seaboard
and railroad freight rates beiavean Cali
fornia and tbe eaet maksa it absolutely
impossible for western growers to com
pete witb foreigners ou thia basia.
Raisins can be shipped from Spain to
the United States for $3 a ton, while it
costs the California grower $24 a ton to
ship hia product to tbe aame market.
The difference in tbe coet of labor in
Europe and America magnifies the ine
quality. In Europe men are paid from
15 cents to 25 cents a day for working in
tbe vineyards, wbUle the same class of
labor in California.commands from $1.25
to $1.50 a day.
Mr. Butler is also much dissatisfied
with the clause in the Wilson boll which
continues Zante raueitis on the free list.
He says that McKinley was in error in
leaving tbem tbere when he framed his
famous bill, and now Wilson bas made
the aame mistake. To correct this error,
if possible, and to prevent additional in
jury from being beapted on California
raisin-growers, will be Mr. Butler's mis
sion in Washington.
It is proposed to send frmr otber large
growers to Washington vrith Mr. Butler
to assist in fighting the obnoxious pro
visions of tbe law. Their' plan of action
will be to buttonhole eac'li member oi
tbe eenate and explain to bim the rea
sona why California canmot compete
with foreign raiain-growecs upon the
terms proposed in the Wileon bill. If,
after having canvassed the Senate pretty
thoroughly, it shall become evidentthat
the bill cannot be defeated in its en
tirety, an effort will be madle to secure
the desired modifications wffiile the bill
is under consideration in a committee of
the senate. No attempt will be made to
prevent the passage of the bill by the
bouse, as it is belie*- d that the lower
body has a Democratic majority suffic
iently large to pass .the bill in spite of
Mr. Butler is quite hopeful of being
able to accomplish, something in tbe
senate. The aid of Senator White will
be depended upon a great deal In tba
Bt niggle, for he baa it in hia power to
render great service to the fruit Interests
of California if he faels so disposed.
After the arrival af tbe committee in
Washington an erßirt will probably be
made to prevent the passage of tbe
clause of the Wilson bill wbich takes
the tariff of 2% cents a pound off of rais
ins and places tbem on the free list.
The fig industry in California ia yet in
its infancy, bnt it bas already given
promise of developing into a great en
terprise if given the proper consideration.
An effort will also be made to prevent
the duty on prunes from being reduced
from 2 cents to 1 cetata pound.
