BOOKS EXPOSE BIG CONSPIRACY OF FOOD TRUST Criminal Schemes for Boosting of Vegetable Prices Are Completely Revealed Documents Form Sufficient Technical Proof to Convict Dealers' Combine Members Fined or Expelled for Selling' Under Prices Fixed * | * H E books of the vegetable trust. I showing a complete and detailed conspiracy to force prices up, arc in the district attorney's office for tlve U«c of the grand jury. They disclose the plan of control, list of members, rates of fines for underselling, trials of members for this offense and the pen alties imposed. Within the meaning of the Cartwright anti-trust law these books outline a- technically perfect case of criminal collusion. Owned by 85 Men The truck gardens supplying San Francisco lie in the peninsula across San Francisco and San Mateo coun ties. They arc owned by 85 men, who form an incorporated association for the marketing of their products in the big Colombo market, situated between Jackson and Pacific streets and ex tending from Davis to Front. To this market the truck wagons roll in during: the nijiht. By noon the retail ers are supplied and Uie gates are The^e gardens supply all of the city's perisha.ble vegetable:?, such as lettuce and the like. • Commissiorvmen Import potatoes, onions, aspargus, artichokes and such products as stand hard trav eling, and also such as may be out of season here. But the merchants are also heavy buyers from the marketmen, for AXameda and Marin oounties look mainly to San Francisco for their sup plies. The vegetable trust is a double or ganization, not only fixing the prices != to be charged by the members, but act ing as their landlord. Called Protective Society In its incorporated form the trust is known as The protective society of the gardeners and ranchers of the coun ties of San Francisco and San Mateo. Through this prices are set, taxes lev ied and. tineas imposed. For convenience the gardeners have an inner "union," through which they operate the market, paying rent for stall*, the hauling away of refuse and Although the two organizations are l.ut two phases of one. it is the pro tective society that District Attorney Ffckert! his assistant. James F. Bren nan, and Foreman Isaac Goldman of - the grand jury are investigating. Its books were produced by Secretary G. Scalmaninl. under subpena. This society has a constitution and bylaws, written In Italian. It has no slock, so is not strictly a commercial company. But no company could im pose more severe conditions on em ployes than the society does on its members. ; . Fines Are Levied After stating that all vegetables pro-\ *lu<:ed by the association shall be Fold .or. Exposed for sale in the Colombo rnarkft. the constitution proceeds to outline the rights and privileges of each .-tall holder and to lay down a system! of fines to prevent the blockading of passageway*, the intrusion of the rent er on his neighbor and other matters \u25a0 - such as any regular market would regulate. But these are only details. The conspiracy to restrict trade im mediately becomes evident in the terms of membership. To become a member of this uncapi- P tallzed society, the rancher must de posit $000 with its treasurer, if he is a newcomer in the business, or $250 if a truck gardener prior to the form ing of the society, which came into existence shortly after the fire. This sum is not considered an initia tion fee. but a bond. It guarantees the payment of- dues and fines. The re mainder may be turned over to any member who withdraws in good stand- Even to ask for membership the applicant must deposit $100 as a guar antee of good faith, to be returned in case of rejection. Directors Fix Prices Every Saturday night the board of directors meets as a committee for the fixing of prices. The schedule fixed must be adhered to by members during the . week affected, under penalty of • fines. It is printed in tl*s 'form of a circular with the names of the veg etables running in a column and ithe . prices opposite. All matter sent out k by the society is printed and .carries Vsuch warnings in Italian as: "Confidential and private.' * "Pay attention to regulations if you do not want to pay a fine." • x "All members are commanded to be present.** .

Independents Will Give Their Unsold Fish to Charity When the new Portola fishing company begins competition with the trust, it will offer its unsold catch free to the charitable insti tutions of San Francisco. Joseph Catania, manager of the new company and head of Catania Brothers, the only inde pendent wholesale fish firm in the city, said yesterday that instead of sending his excess catch to the glue works, he will offer it to the poor for the asking. The Portola company will operate a set of trawling tugs within a few weeks, entering into direct competition with those of the Western and Paladini com panies, the heads of the fish trust. Paladini and the Western have sent as much as 1 2 tons of fresh fish to the glue works in one day, but never a pound to' the asylums or hospitals. McCarthy Pained By Change of Cast [Special Dispatch io The Call] INDIANAPOLIS, June 3. — Doc tor "Wagner changed the plaster cast on Mayor P. 11. McCarthy's broken ankle today, ai:d the op eration was so. painful that the,. X ray examination which it had been expected to make was post poned. The new cast was made for the purpose of holding; one of the fragments of the broken bone more lirmly in place. It is believed by the doctors that lie will improve rapidly now" and that the injury will soon' ccass, to be so painful. However the " X ray examination will be made in order to make sure that the ' bones are in-., their proper posi tions. The weather, which has been unusually cold for this .time of the year, lias in a measure kept McCarthy back and caused a gen eral depression of feeling. The mayor has made no definite plans on account of-the uncer tainty as to the time when he will be able io leave the hospital. He says lie will follow the advice of his physicians, and they dp not promise, that he will be able to be out very soon- INDEX OF THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL'S NEWS TODAY TELEPHONE KEABYV 88 SATURDAY.

TAFT'S BILL PASSED BY SENATE Administration's Railroad Meas ure, After Amendment, Ap proved by Senators DEMOCRATS ALONE IN OPPOSITION TO sVaTUTE Vote Might Have Been Unani mous but for Court of Commerce Clause INCREASED POWER TO THE COMMISSIONERS Status of Railroad Bill As Passed by Senate The senate today passed ih& administration railroad bill by a vote of 50 fo 12. The negative votes ii> ere by democrats. Briefly, the bill, which now goes bac^ to the house, provides for a court of commerce consist ing of five judges. Gives interstate commerce com- mission full power to regulate long and short haul rates for pro tection of water competition. Permits shippers to designate routes. Places telegraph and telephone companies under jurisdiction of interstate commerce commission. Regulates issuance of -federal injunctions that might suspend state laws. Gives interstate commerce com mission more power in the deter mination of reasonableness of rates. WASHINGTON, June 3.— The sen ate passed the administration railroad v bill at 9:55 o'clock tonight It had been under consid eration for more than 12 weeks and practically no other business except appropriation bills was considered in that long period. Only 12 votes, all by democrats, were recorded against the bill. The practical unanimity with which the measure was passed was due to radical changes made in the measure from the form in which It was drafted by Attorney General Wickersham fol lowing numerous conferences at the White House on the subject of amend ing interstate commerce law 3. All the "insurgents," who opposed many features of the original bill, voted for it tonight. Elimination of Sections Through the elimination of pooling and merger sections and by reason of the adoption of many amendments in the Interest of shippers, the progres sive republicans claim a signal vic tory and most of the democrats ex pressed themselves as favorable to the large portion of the measure. Had it not been for the retention of the sections to create a court of com merce, it Is likely that the vote for the bill would have been unanimous. Fifty For and Twelve Against 'Debate ceased at 9:50 o'clock, when Senator Elkins, chairman of the inter state commerce committee, moved to take up the bill 'which was passed by the : house, and alter striking' out the body of that measure to substitute the matter agreed upon by the senate. In that form the bill -was voted upon, with the -result that it was passed by a vote of 50 to 12. / No republican voted against the bill and six democrats voted for it. They were Chamberlain, Clay, Gore, Paynter, Simmons and Stone. The democrats re corded against it were Bacon, Fletcher, Fraxler, Hughes, Money, Newlands. Percy, Purcell, Raymer, Shlvely, Smith ,of Maryland and Smith of South Caro | Una. v La Follette Gives Warning Just before the voting began. Sen ator La Follette, one of the "insur gent" republican leaders, served notice upon the senate that unless the senate conferees made a determined fight for retention of amendments procured by. progressive and democrats, it could not hope to have the conference report approved. \u25a0 'Speeches in explanation of their votes were. made by Senators Bacon, La Fol lette. Dolliver, Paynter, Clay. Simmons and Gore. - The hew law will take effect 60 days after it i 3 approved by the president. ;Thfr »foigh ago to", ia the railroad MU ' -I \ ' ' - T '
