DES MOINES, March 11. (Special.)
The Iowa Association of Independent Tele
phone Managers and Owners commenced a
convention here today. There are about
200 present and the reports of officials
show that in the lsst two years the asso
ciation has grown from a mere dozen per
sons to ita present proportions. The asso
ciation now has as members nearly all who
are connected with the independent toll
lines traversing the state. A legislative
committee s maintained for the purpose
of Influencing legislation and taking care
that nothing Is done that will affect the
telephone business adversely. Provision
was made today for an arbitration board to
consult with employes and to act as be
tween different companies, the committee
to consist of five members appointed by the
president and to receive compensation
while on duty. Provision waa also made
for incorporation of the association. The
recent decision of the supreme court re
lating to franchises on streets was dis
cussed at length and an attorney of this
city was asked to address the association
and explain the purport of the decision.
There was some consideration also given
to the suit In Pottawattamie county to
have declared unconstitutional the law re
lating to telephone companies having a
right to place their poles on the public
highways. The following officers were
elected: President, Dr. Hcer, Ottumwa;
vice president, J. C. Sullivan, Creston;
secretary and treasurer, C. C. Deerlng. Des

is the basis on which the work Is being
done. The committees will be In session

The grand lodge, Knights of Pythias of
Iowa, was located In Creston at the last

were being made to go there In July nex.
for the annual gathering; but the officials
have just received word that the conditions
which were imposed on Creeton have not
been met and it will be necessary to
choose some other place for the meeting.
Accordingly the executive committee is to
meet in Des Mo'.ue. soon and, fix a location
for the grand lodge. This may be at Ot

Change In Shlloh Program.
The transnortaJton committee on the
Shlloh monutrrA 'commission will have an
other lneetlnSibdn ' xod may change the
program with reference to the t.-lp of the
Iowa soldiers to the battlefield near PltU
burg Lending for May 30 next, when tho
Iowa monuments' at Shlloh will be dedi
cated. The committee had practically con
cluded arrangements to have the excursion
proceed by way of Paducah, Ky., going from
that town on a steamboat which would re
main at Pittsburg Landing for two days
Vitllo the Iowa people were visiting the
battlefield. Now it is proposed that the
Iowa excursion, which is likely to Include
several hundred persons, shall go by way of
Memphis and on tnrough Tennessee and to
the battle scenes of Corinth, Iuka and els3
where. There has not been complete suc
cess In the efforts to secure a suitable boat
for the trip up the river from Paducah.
The Iowa monuments ere now being placed
at Shlloh and the contractors say they will
have their work all complete some time
next month so that there will be no delay
In the dedication. Governor Cummins is to
accompany the party and deliver an ad
dress. Trainmen and the Federation.
Information has been received by the offi
cials of the, Iowa Federation of Labor to
the effect that the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen in Iowa Is making overtures look
ing toward affiliation with the trades and
labor assemblies. None of the railroad or
ders are now joined with the federation.
Last year the coal miners returned to tho
federation and greatly strengthened it.
Now the railroad trainmen are preparing
to join with the other orders in the federa
tion movement. This would add nearly
1,000 members, as the last report of the
trainmen showed they had twenty-nine lo
cals In the state with a membership of
1,762, and there has been an Increase since
that time. It Is anticipated that if the
trainmen join the federation other of the
railroad orders will also come In soon.

dicates that there has been a decline es
pecially in the business of domestic com
panies and they are not as active as for
merly. The purely local made gains during
Bankers Meet at Davenport.
The executive committee of the Iowa
State Bankers' association held a meeting
thla afternoon in the Grant club rooms to
fix the time and place for the annual tweet
ing. Davenport gets the meeting and the
middle week of July will be selected be
cause of the fact that the Illinois State
Bankers' association is to meet in Rock
Island, just across the river at that time,
and it was desired by the bankers of both
associations that their meetings should be
held at the same time so that many who
attend could go back and forth. There
are always a great many Chicago bankers
at the Illinois association meetings and
they will be at Rock Island In large num
bers. It is expected that Secretary Shaw
will be one of the speakers at both of the
meetings, and other distinguished per
sons will attend.
Carpenters and Builders Agree.
There will be no trodblo in the build
ing trades over labor questions this year
In Des Moines and this despite the fact
that there ia more activity and a greater
demand for labor than ever before. The
carpenters and the builders held a Joint
meeting last evening and settled their dif
ferences, or rather entered into a mutual
agreement as to the wage scale for the
current building season, which Is entirely
satisfactory to both. The scale is for a
minimum wage of 32tt cents an hour, and
a standard wage of 40 cents an hour, and
the day to consist ot eight hours. The
minimum scale is the same as last year,
but the standard is tM cents higher. The
scale waa signed by the representatives of
the carpenters' union and the Builders' ex
change to cover the entire year. This
disposes of the possibility of a strike or
disagreement this season. The bricklayers
and others are practically agreed with the
builders on a scale and there will not be

Commission and No Ob
ST. PAUL, Minn., March 11. The report
of the testimony taken before Frederick
G. Ingersoll, special examiner In the case
of the United States against the Northern
Securities company and others has been
Bled with the clerk of the federal court.
The report comprises four volumes of ap
proximately 600 pages each, and much 'of
the testimony has been published from
time to time as it was taken.
The filing of the report makes public for
the first time the proceedings at an Inter
esting session held November 12, 1902, in
New York, In which the contentions of the
government and the defendant are outlined.
The securities company maintained that Its
operations are no't In violation of the Sher
man anti-trust act; that since the passage ot
that act other railway companies have ac
quired by purchase and lease parallel and
competing lines frequently under legisla
tive sanction; that these facts have been
leported to the Interstate Commerce com
mission and by the commission to congress;
that the universal, popular and legislative
construction of the Sherman act haa been
that such railway transactions are not In
violation of anti-trust law.
The attorneys for the North jrn Securl
tlea company endeavored to secure from
the Interstate Commerce commission reports
on tho transactions of teven railway com
panies concerning consolidation. The coin
mlueion declined to lurnlsh reports, and
the httorneya for the defendant then asked

Evidence Not to the Point.
General Richards, for the government,
held that the proposed evidence was imma
Now the present suit Is one brought
against the Northern Securities company,
the Northern Pacific and Great Northern
Railway companies and certain stockholders
of these two corporatlona. The position ol
the government is that In the formation
of the Northern Securltlea company, in the
way It waa formed, there was a contract
or combination made in restraint of trade.
Ia the answer of tho defendanta it ia In
sisted that there waa no contract or com
bination made In restraint of such trade.
Thet is a proper defense, and 1 have no ob
jection to any testimony tending to sustain
it. But it is further urged, on the side
of the defense, that it there waa a contract
or combination made, other railway com
panies have been and are guilty of doing
substantially the same thing.
Now, is that any defense? If other rail
way companies did In any way enter into
contracta or combination In restraint of
trade among the Beveral states before the
passage of the anti-trust act. can It be
fairly claimed that the anti-trust act was
not Intended to apply to such contracts or
combinations? The Inference Is clearly the
