HOW THE ICE TRUST IS CINCHING SEATTLE Seattle ia getting a sample straight from the ice trust refriger ator and the result may be expected to start something in the nature of a Toledo crusade according to re ports that come from that city. Here is something picked out of the ice pack lately: Andrew Henderson, formerly the owner of the Drivers' Union Ice company, which later expanded in to the Union Ice and Fuel company, and later the Standard Ice com pany, is now the owner of a small express wagon that stands on Ma rion street, at the corner of First avenue. That he la an expressman and not the owner of the Standard Ice company's large a,nd prosperous plant at the foot of Cedar street on Elliott avenue, is due to the "system." of Seattle's Ice combine. in 1900 Henderson started in business as an ice dealer. He en joyed good business for a year and a half, and then incorporated a STOCK MEN OBEY THE BEEF TRUST CHICAGO, July 21.—The Nation al Livestock exchange today ap pointed a committee consisting of W.

In 1904 h,e leased a building now occupied by the Standard Ice com pany, and contracted for the instal lation of Ice making machinery, and other appurtenances, and the plant when completed cost $45,000. Henderson, in order to start up business, mortgaged his plant for $8000. For a time things went well, and the other ice companies doing business saw that Henderson was breaking in upon their trade and they sought to get at him. The Seattle Ice company, controlling the Pacific Ice and Cold Storage company, together with the other companies cut rates. From June 20, 1904, until April, 1905, Henderson tried to fight against the combine, but finally gave in, was forced to quit and | was given a position as manager tinder the new owners. He held 'that position until April, 1906, when to call upon Secretary Wilson and protest against the agricultural de partment rule forcing a post mor tem inspection of meat.

To that he would not submit, and he was told that he could not get a cent more. So Henderson resigned. The trust had him where they wanted him, and, as be had a wife and three children dependent upon him, he at once sought to reengage in the business of selling ice. April 23, 1906, he sold a small house and lot he possessed, and purchased a wagon and team of horses. He managed to secure ice through the Washington Cold Storage company, but as soon as the Seattle Ice com pany got wind of It, they threats ened to put in a cold storage plant in opposition. The Washington Cold Storage company notified Henderson that they could no lon ger give him Ice. That was the end of Henderson's little business. He could not get Ice for love or money. That play forced Hender son's customers to return to their former ice companies'—the trust. For a few days after he was noti fied that he could not get Ice, in order to accommodate his custom ers he scraped snow from the pipes in various cold storage plants, pack ing it away in boxes to his former customers, who urgently needed the commodity. This did not last long and the old customers were forced into paying the rates asked by the trust. Henderson is now driving an ex press wamofl. The trust has put Ice up to its own figures.
