Parker, internal revenue col lector, said yesterday that more than 3500 corporations in his district have failed to make reports, as required by the new federal corporation tax law, although only seven days remain be fore the time limit expires. Heavy uanalties will be imposed, under tho new -ruling, on all corporations who have not made their reports, and, ac cording to Parker, at the present time It will be impossible for even the ma jority of them to come in. In anticipation of a rush, however, the collector will keep his offices on the fourth floor of the Pacific Electric building open until 6 o'clock every evening during the time required by law, although, under this law, his closing time it set for 4:30 o'clock. In speaking of the situation yester day Mr. Parker said: "Less than one half of the corporations in my district have made their reports. I come in contact with men daily who do not expect to make any reports because they have received no blanks or be cause their net profits do not exceed $5000. Such corporations are bound to be penalfzed, because none can es cape." Not a single mercantile corporation has yet reported. ' LOS ANGELES HERALD TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 22. 1910. MUNICIPAL HARBOR AND FEDERAL SHIP LINE IS CITY'S GREAT NEED FLEMING SEES A FINE FUTURE FOR LOS ANGELES COMMERCIAL SUPREMACY WILL COME WITH BIG PROJECTS Secretary Who Has Just Returned! from Washington Tells What Los Angeles Should Have "The commercial supremacy of Los Angeles is in the balance—dependent on the opening of new avenues for the re lief of its freight congestion, the elim ination of a deplorable traffic handicap arbitrarily imposed by the railway and steamship companies and the expedi tious development uf the many tre mendous opportunities confronting us. "It is vitally important that our peo ple realize the significance of the fed eral steamship project and the incal culable advantages to be derived from a thoroughly modern and municipally owned harbor. "The Los Angeles harbor and the fed eral steamship projects are interde pendent and their success means not only the commercial supremacy of Los Angeles, but a thorough development of all the wealth and resources of the southwest, with an attendant growth and prosperity undreamed of by our citizens. 1' —A. P. Fleming, secretary of Los Angeles board of harbor commis sioners. Imbued with enthusiasm and ex tremely confident as a result of en- couragement received at Washington, Secretary A. P. Fleming of the i,os Angeles board of harbor commission ers stated yesterday there was no doubt in his mind that the shippers of Los Angeles will soon find relief from the present conditions. The railroads, said Mr. Fleming, have demonstrated their utter inability to meet the con stantly increasing requirements of the southwestern metropolis, and ceasing to look to the railroads for relief, the shippers are co-operating in tile plan for the establishment of a coastwise steamship line. "If the people cannot secure a fed eral line they will' secure, by charter or by subsidy, the service of sufficient water carriers to enable the industries of California to expand to their ca pacity and compete with those of the more favored east. "The first great requirement of Los Angeles," said Mr. Fleming, "is a modern harbor. We cannot hold our own until we have built warehouses, wharves, docks, etc., to accommodate the vessels. The people should realize the vast importance of a municipally owned harbor and facilities, the public ownership of which will permit every development and expansion demanded by future conditions. "With such a harbor Los Angeles speedily can take her place among the world's greatest ports of entry. Retarding Influences "The advantages of a municipally owned harbor are infinite. The South ern Pacific domination and control of San Pedro, despite our marvelous growth in population, has Invincibly retarded the development of many great industries on which the pros perity of a large proportion of our pop ulation depends. "Numerically, we have expanded by leaps and bounds. We have the great est natural assets in the world, the finest climate and the most beautiful homes of any city in the United States, but our trade channels are congested, our traffic facilities are so inadequate that much of our marketable fruit in recent years has rotted in the groves or deteriorated in the slow process of railway transportation, while for lack of oceanic service our manufacturers have not been able to enter foreign markets, hence our industrial activi ties are confined to a near patronage, and accordingly limited. A municipal ly owned harbor, with warehouses and docks to meet requirements, is a gate way to tl^e Orient. It invites the Orient to come to us, permits us to compete for their trade and insures us that we will be able to hold our own in future trade relations. "Los Angeles harbor is but seventy miles from what is known as the great circle of oceanic steamship routes. "The development of the Imperial valley region into what promises to become one of the world's most pro ductive regions should cause us to awaken to the newer possibilities. Shipping from that valley should, and must, come through Los Angeles. "The railroads, admittedly unable to handle our immense fruit output, are just as unable properly to relieve the other discouraging conditions which annually cause the truck farmer, the citrus and deciduous fruit grower, the vineyardist, the walnut raiser, the wine and olive oil maker and similar producers a loss of thousands upon thousands of dollars. Yet the peoples of Europe, South and Central Amer ica and of the orient are clamoring for our wares and products. "Water transportation Is the only salvatiol for Southern California. If the present steamship and harbor projects of Los Angeles are executed to the extent now planned, Los An geles will ship its perishable products to Berlin for $6 a ton. At present our fruit growers pay $23 to the railroads for every ton of citrus fruit shipped to New York, and the railroads are able properly to handle about B0 per cent of it. Railroads Not Keeping Pace "There is a deplorable shortage of rare—yet the roads are not building to keep pace with our development. On my return from Washington last week the limited was delayed three hours before ten trains of citrus fruits from Southern California could get present Los Angeles must ship to San Francisco all products which are to be marketed in Colon, other wise wo must ship our products to New York, then several thousand miles back again by water carrier to Colon. If we ship to New York or ship to San Francisco it makes little differ ence for in either event the goods are reshipped and practically 'back "The federal steamship lines now in operation from Colon via Ancon, pur chased by the United States govern ment in connection with the Panama railroad to facilitate the canal work, has proved remarkably satisfactory and a paying institution. "The Pacific Mail Steamship com pany, which refuses to ply its vessels between Southern California ports and Panama, and whir-h la thn only Una 'A »' ; " -"— —— A. P. FLEMING that could relieve prevailing conditions | here, demands 70 per cent of the freight collections on goods shipped from New York to Ancon and Colon, notwithstanding the government ves sels on the Atlantic carry the goods over 4000 miles, while the Pacific Mall company carries the same goods less than b'ooo mile,; " From 70 to 80 per cent of the ship ments received at San Diego are for Los Angeles. This difference would more than justify the Pacific Mail Steamship company in stopping at X>os Angeles, but as it in a Southern Pa cific company the water carrier branch of the company prefers to favor the railroad, so the land carrier can collect the extra charges. "Competition," said Mr. Fleming, "is necessary properly to regulate the service by water as well as by land. Just as two parallel rival roads will facilitate traffic and lower rates, so two rival steamship lines calling at the same ports will have the same effect. Los Angeles not only needs a harbor at which all ships may stop, but it needs a federal steamship line that will act as a safety valve, insure just treatment, expeditious service, 'reasonable rates, and prevent arbi trary or monopolistic abuse?. Roosevelt Orders Investigation "Joseph L. Bristow. appointed by the government in ISO-", to investigate Pacific coast water carrier and harbor conditions, and whose first report so Interested President Roosevelt that he ordered him to conduct a second inves tigation, extending from Colon and An con up to San Diego, San Pedro and San Francisco, cited the evils of the conditions then prevailing, and more or less still prevailing, and unhesi tatingly indicated the only remedy as lying in the federal ownership of .steamship lines. "Following this report, and because the government realized the advan tages of owning its own freight car riers, the United States acquired the holdings of the Panama Railway and Steamship company, and there was ex pended $38,000,000 at Salina Cruz alow in harbor development. Electric cranes wert; installed, sheds eonstructetd, warehouses built and other improve ments made at nearly al the ports of the southern republic. Two new ships were purchased, giving the government line at Panama seven in all, and the forty-seven mile railroad was modern ized. This purchase alone, I believe, has saved the government millions of dollars. "While at Washington I was in con sultation with George R. Baker, recog nized as the most expert shipper on the Atlantic coast, who stated that he hauled perishable goods at a profit from New York to Liverpool for $2.00 a ton. "W. R. Wheeler, traffic manager of the Merchants' association of Los An geles; Seth Mann, attorney for the same association, with numerous other prominent western representatives, also were in Washington to promote the coastwise federal steamship project. "This is important to consider, inas much as it has been but a short time since San Francisco took the stand that a federal steamship line was not wanted and opposed the project. San Francisco, however, now realizes its mistake, and is co-operating enthu siastically for the success of the plan. "The people of San Francisco," said Mr. Fleming, "finally are convinced that the Pacific coast must be pro tected as is the Atlantic. Competition is necessary to insure reasonable rates, and a federal steamship line is neces sary to prevent collusion and regulate traffic and conditions. "George G. Dearborn, traffic manager of the American-Hawaiian Steamship company, says his company is to make every port on the Pacific a port of call, but this assurance only stimulates the demand for a municipally owned har bor and a government owned steamship line, for it is the only solution to the problem. Must Invade Foreign Fields "The Pacific must emulate the At lantic, and wo must hasten to invade foreign markets, secure rates which will permit us to do so at a profit, anrl then begin our crusade of creating a further demand for our wares and products. Already the demand is far in excess of our ability to supply, be cause of the handicap of the land and water carriers' system along the west coast. "The congestion of the interior traffic is responsible for the congestion of the coast traffic and there is no outlet but by water. "Senator Flint's bill appropriates $10,000,000 for a federal steamship line, and the people of California should co operate in demanding; the adoption of the bill. The project is of vital import ance, not only to Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, but to the entire Pacific coast. "It must be understood that the fed eral coastwise laws prohibit any for eign vessel from entering United States ports and taking freight or passengers to other ports except its own. At pres ent a large number of the vessels ply ing along the coast are foreign bot toms, hence of no benefit to the Ameri can coastwise shippers." Secretary Fleming in his address to the committee on commerce in the United States senate summarized the facts lucidly. "We must bear in mind," he said, "that Senator Flint in introducing this bill does not ask that an experiment be made, at the public expense, for the intention is to adopt only tested meth ods of protection from mergers, com binations and excessive transportation charges. , , "The Sherman anti-trust law so far has failed to regulate or protect any thing or anybody. "Los Anseles harbor is the gateway CHAPLINS GIVEN JAIL SENTENCE NINE MONTHS AND FINE OF $1000 METED OUT PETITIONS OF BOTH FRIENDS AND JURORS OF NO AVAIL Aged Mother of Imperial Valley Op erators Led from Court Room by a Friend When the Judge Gives Punishment Frank N. Chaplin and David H. Chaplin, convicted by a jury in the United States district court January I 9 of conspiracy to defraud the govern ment of desert lands in the Imperial valley, were sentenced yesterday by Judge Wellborn to spend nine months in the county jail and to pay fines of $1000 each. Before sentence was passed a petition signed by the jurors i who convicted the brothers was pro- . sented to the court asking that fines and not imprisonment be imposed. The Chaplins will take their cases to the supreme court. The trial of the Chaplins has occu pied the attention of the United States district court four months and has cost both the government and the de fense hundreds of thousands of dollars, it has been continued many times be cause of the ill health of one of the | defendants, Frank N. Chaplin, i Throughout the entire trial the mother of the defendants, Mrs. Lydia A. Chap lin, an aged widow, sat by the side of her sons, and was one of the most in terested spectators. She had held hopes that a fine would be imposed in stead of a jail sentence, and as Judge Wellborn concluded his sentence she wept quietly to herself and was led gently from the court room. The Chaplins before their indictment were prominent business men in the Imperial valley. Before settling in the Imperial valley they were school teachers. In their defense they stated they had made the desert bloom like gardens, had had no knowledge that the law was being broken and were only doing what evei-y other settler in the Imperial valley had done. The pe tition to Judge Wellborn by the jurors in the case reads: "We, the undersigned, jurors -who rendered a verdict of 'guilty' against Frank N. Chaplin and David H. Chap lin in the case of United States against Chaplin and others, beg leave to rep resent to this honorable court that al though under the law we found said defendants guilty we do not believe they are criminal at heart or that they had a guilty intent to actually defraud the government in any manner, and believe it our duty to respectfully ask your honor to be as merciful as pos sible to them, and hope the demands of justice may be satisfied without im prisoning them." Following the petition of the jurors another was presented to the court signed by all the county officers of Imperial valley, including the judge of the superior court, (he city officials of Holtville city, capitalists of Imperial county, officers of the Imperial and El Centro chambers of commerce, bank ers, publishers and editors of that sec tion and 257 business men of Imperial county. This petition reads: "The Chaplins have been residents of the Imperial valley since its early his tory, and no one stands higher in the estimation of its citizens than they, both for honesty in their private deal ings as well as uprightness as men. "Wo do not question the Justice of the verdict rendered by the jury, but we feel that whatever infraction of the law may have been committed by these men the same was done through Ignorance of the law and not by reason of criminal intent and abandoned or corrupt motives. "They are men of families. They are comparatively poor and the long trial has been not only a sore financial bur den to them but a punishment as well. We, their neighbors, respectfully urge, inasmuch as they have heretofore led blameless lives among us, that you show them that clemency for which they are so well known, and we ear nestly pray you not to impose a prison sentence on them." between the two great commercial and transportation realms, the land on one end and the sea on the other. So sit nated, between the Occident and the Orient, it certainly constitutes a nat ural concentration point for shippers— a natural portal to the highway of the seas, so jealously guarded by the gov ernment. "Now, let us consider a few of the products and values of Southern Cali fornia which will pass through the Los Angeles harbor, and which today are limited, great as they are, by poor transportr.tion facilities and the unex cusable lack of oceanic service. We produce annually the following com modities: Melons, $500,000; beet sugar, $4,250,000; nuts, $3,000,000; olive oil, $750,000; pickled olives, $500,000; grapes and wine, $1,250,000; beans, $3,000,000; oranges, $25,000,000; lemons, $5,000,000; celery, $800,000; dried fruits and raisins, $1,500,000; hay, $400,000; grain, $3,100, --000; cabbage $200,000; potatoes, $100,000; tomatoes, $80,000; cauliflower, $112,000; onions, $200,000. We also produce 56, --000,000 barrels of oil annually, valued at $30,800,000, and 500,000 pounds of wool, 2,000,000 pounds of hides and 150, --000 tons of asphalt, besides several million dollars' worth of factory goods and by-products of the agricultural output. Rail Shipments Important "Also let us remember that annually there comes by rail to Los Angeles about 150,000 tons of iron and steel and more than 30,000 carloads of groceries, dry goods, paper, etc., of which from 50 to 80 per cent could and should be transported by way of Panama at a great saving to the consumers of Southern California, if there were proper facilities." Mr. Fleming also called attention to the rapid progress in the construction of the Panama canal, the advantage of the east over the west by reason of the government ownership of the Pan ama steamship line, the indications of an early completion of the canal, the vast avenues of traffic which will be thrown open to Los Angeles when the canal is finished, and the importance of developing our harbor and securing water carrier facilities in time- to com mand the first of the new traffic. "Los Angeles must be in a position," he 3aid, "to compete with other ports of entry, and, being the second port in the United States north of the canal, will, if we co-operate in time, secure an enormous amount of the business to be derived from the new conditions Sanford's, Room Size Axminster Rugs at . . . $18.50 —Another big Rug value from the 4th floor Rug Store—the store that isn't 3 years old, and yet has grown to be a factor in the great Rug Markets of the world — —As its strength and ability have increased, the opportunities we have been able to offer have increased and the past year has seen some notable Rug Events in which good Rugs have been sold at absurdly low prices— —Today one of the biggest Rug offerings we have been able to make.

I do not know just what it will be, but we will get water service to compete with the railroads. The trade of Panama should, logically, belong to California, and we must prepare to wrfvst at least a just portion of it from the At lantic. "It was brought out in the hearings before the senate committee," added Mr. Fleming, "that the traffic of the Panama route has fallen off consid erably, while that of the American- Hawaiian line over the Tehauntepec route has been greatly enlarged, the Tehauntepec route is controlled by the Mexican government. "I told the senate committee that l wanted the United States government to do the same with the Panama rout" The government has done nothing to develop this route, giving the Pacific Mail Steamship company practically everything it has asked. While the Pacific Mail company gets 70 per cent and the government 40 per cent of the through rate between At lantic coast and Panama points, the government says it is making money out of the 30 per cent left over. "The vice president and general manager of the Panama railroad, which, while it is owned by the United States government is conducted as a corporation and along regular recog nized business lines, testified before the senate committee that citrus fruits could be shipped from Los Angeles to Atlantic ports at $15 a ton if refrig erator ships were operated, at a fair profit. The federal ships on the At lantic are now as well refrigerated as the canal is opened, freight can be shipped from Los Angeles to Liverpool in twenty-one days time for $6 a ton. This will enable the South ern California orchardist and manu facturer to market his fruits and wares in Berlin. London and other cities now utterly beyond his reach; it will stimulate the demand, make him more independent, improve market condi tions in his OWB country and insure general prosperity. "It is up to the people of California to co-operate in this great enterprise —the most far-reaching in the history of the state—and it is up to the people of Los Angeles to work together for a free and ample harbor with all mod ern improvements, and to protect it by municipal ownership." PRIZE FIGHTFR FINED FOR ASSAULTING BOY Rage at Being Run Rown by Bicycle Given as Excuse for Beat. ing Youth Philip Delasci, a prize fighter, -was fined $5 by Police Judge Williams for beating an inoffensive messenger hoy who nearly rode his bicycle into the accused. Delasci was walking in Main street, near Second, when a lad on a bicycle turned the corner and knocked him down. Before the latter could regain his feet the boy was mounted and on his way. Delasci chased the lad, but finding he could not catch him gave up the pursuit and started back. At this moment Thomas O'Brien, a messenger, rode near the enraged pugilist. One of the pedals narrowly missed striking Delasci on the leg.

Section GLENDALE PUPILS FORM AERO CLUB ALL SORTS OF PLANES WILL BE EXHIBITED Eleven Models of Sky Craft Are to Be Displayed at School House In Suburb of This City Seeds of aeronautics planted in ttio fertile brains of the school boys and girls in San Fernando valley, germin ating since the aviation meet at Do minguez field, have brought about the organization of the Aero club of West Glendale. Officers have been elected, and the date for an exhibition of mod els of biplanes, monoplanes and sev eral other "planes" has been set. The officers of the club are: Presi dent, Harry Bonnie; treasurer, John Dewar; secretary, Howard Bradley; aviators, Harry Bohmo and Vernon Snively. The roster of the club con tains these names: Thomas Thornton, Frank Fangman, Browning Mosley, Clarence Ball, James Gibson, Miller Holman, Will Cathcart, Harry Bonnie, Howard Bradley and Vernon Snively. The boys have. lowered the bars a "weentsie bit" to admit as honorary; members four of their girl schoolmates,' who assisted them in cutting and sew ing the canvas for the club's glider. The girls, enthusiasts in promoting aeronautics, are Margaret Dick, Bar bara Mitchell, Viola Yorba and Mar jorie Duncan. These emulators of Paulhan, Curtisa and Willard are. pupils at the West Glendale school. Their exhibition of models, eleven in number, is sched uled to be displayed at the schoolhouso next Monday afternoon. Judges will be chosen at that time, and these will pass upon the workmanship and prac ticability of the several models. The one winning the decision of the judges will be copied in the construc tion of a boy's size flying machine. The father of one of the club members has agreed to furnish a motor for the machine. The glider, in which the club has a partnership interest, has been tested, and while one envious outsider said ha "could glide faster and farther under his dad's old wagon umbrella," the makers of the glider profess to be sat isfied with their efforts. The scene of their experimental flights with the glid er was at Ldmlta, which is Spanish for "little hill." Lomita is a knoll at tha southwest corner of Glandale, and here every afternoon after school the adventurous aviators assemble and glide until the dinner cry calls them home. MISSIONARY WORKERS TO MEET The Woman's Federation of Chris tian Missionary Workers will meet in all-day sessions tomorrow at the First Congregational church. The morning session will begin with a praise and prayer service. An address will be made by Rev. Dwight Chapin on "China in Transition."
