Sole Selling Headquarters.
Chicago, Nov. 28.—Chicago is to be
come the sole selling headquarters of
the new lumber combination and Ed
ward Hines is to be president of the
syndicate.
While figures publicly stated have
fixed the combination as a $20,000,000
afTair competing lumber interests can
see no limit to its capitalization, but
at the same time they expressed no
fear of it attempting to restrain trade
by fixing prices. Frederick Weyer

ly concerned vanished from Chicago
and it was believed they had gone
the home of Mr. W'eyehaeuser at St.

pleting tike details of the combina
tion.
A new capitalist named in the ven
ture was T. H. Walker, the largest in
dividual owner of "standing" white
pine in the world. Mr. Weyerhaeuser
and Mr. Walker, it is said, have made
previous attempts to arrive at a busi
ness understanding. Mr. Walker has

trade, tying up every dollar available
in the standing timber and not sell
ing often. Lumber interests have long
suspected him of planning to "corner"
the white pine market.
The new combination not only con
trols the key to the white pine situa
tion, but it also has a large voice in
the hemlock, yellow, Southern and
Western pine fields. Mr. Weyer
haeuser controls the supply of Missis
sippi.
Cloquet, Minn., is the center of pro
duction of white pine and the con
trolling elements there are Mr
Weyerhaeuser, the Northern Lumbei
company, Cloquet Lumber company
and the Johnson-Wentworth Lumbei

LAMPHERE GOES TO PRISON
Given indeterminate Term on Convifr
tion for Arson.
L&porte, Ind., 'Nov. 28.—Before Say
Lamphere, under sentence from two
to twenty-one years, was taken to the
state prison in Mictigan City to be
gin his term he received a visit from
his aged mother. Though not with
him during the trial she came here
fiom South Bend in order to say good
bye to bim and cheer him up. The
meeting of mother and son was a
pathetic one, the mother breaking
down and crying as she clasped her
son in her arms. The prisoner bore
up well, though there was a mistiness
about his eyes.
Later in the day Lamphere was
taken to prison. In a statement be
said that he intended to become an
exemplary prisoner so as to get the
benefit of all good time and would be
paroled after his first two years.
Lamphere, who was charged with
the murder of Mrs. Belle Gunness and
her three children by setting fire to
the Gunness house April 28, was
found guilty of arson by the Jury
after it had been out about twenty
four hours.
Attorney Worden of the defense
said that a motion for a new trial
would be made and, should it be re
fused, an appeal to the Indiana su
preme court would follow. The In
diana supreme court is two years be
hind in its work and so this ise
could not be reached until after he
had served the minimum time of his
sentence.
MAY VISIT CANAL ZONE
House Committee on Interstate and
Foreign Commerce.
Washington, Nov. 28.—At the first
meeting of the house committee on
interstate and foreign commerce th»
suggestion will be made that the com
mittee visit the isthmian canal zone
this winter.
Several matters of importance af
fecting the government of the sone
probably will come before congress at
the next session and as the lnt.erstat
and foreign commerce committee has
full jurisdiction over new legislation
for that territory it is thought wist
lhat the entire membership acquaint
itself with recent developments there
It has been five years since the com
mittee visited the zone.

OPPOSITION TO
PRESENT RULES
Organized Effort to Change
House Procedure.
CONDEMN ONE MAN POWER
Congressmen Murdock of Kansas and
Gardiner of Massachusetts Reach
Washington and Declare Them
selves in Favor of a Restoration of
Initiative and independence to the
Members.
Washington, Nov. 28.—That there
will be an organized effort to amend
the present rules of the house of rep
resentatlves is made clearly manifest
by the frank statement of several
members of congress since their ar
rival in Washington. Whether this
fight on the house rules will be car
rled to an extent which will extend
Into an organized opposition to
Speaker Cannon's re-election will not
develop for some time. Victor
Murdock, a newspaper man and con
gressman from Wichita, Kan., has ar
rived here and has given out a sig
nificant statement. Among other
things he said
"Every man who goes Into this con
test against the present manner of
procedure in the house, which con
centrates all the power to one man,
will have a rocky road to travel.
Kvery member who expects to prosper
through exercise of ordinary sub
servience and flattery and whose chief
idea of service is an important com
mittee assignment will remain awake
nights to cast ridicule upon the group
of men who really believe that the
house of representatives has lost ita
representative function and that the
most important single public service
possible today would be a restoration
of initiative and Independence to the
helpless Individual on the floor who
does not care to go, hat in hand, to
•the speaker or one of a few chair
men, before he can discharge with
effect his duties to hie constituency."
Gardiner Also in the Fight.
Representative Gardiner of Massa
chusetts was a caller on the president
and as he was departing from the
White House gave out the following
statement of his stand on the speak
•rship situation:
"I shall not decide how to vote on
the speakership until I know the
names of the candidates.
Personally I am more interested in
a change In the rules than in n
change in the speakership. If we
members of the house continue te
adopt rules abandoning our power and
shifting our responsibilities onto th
speaker's shoulders we must not g'1
back to our constituents and cry
babv
because he exercises that power,
while we cheerfully leave him to bear
all the responsibility.
"Heretofore the rules have been pre
scribed by the majority in the party
caucus in other words, by the ma
jority of a majority, and the motion
power has been supplied by a still
smaller sub-division of the house. The
time has now come when those of u
who are dissatisfied must do one of
three things—either carry the party
caucus, refuse to caucus on rules or
shut up. I believe that our best chance
lies in the second line of procedure."
