tkat Conaplracy Iaa Btti
lavlnf charted deliberate conspiracy on
he part of the Nebraska Oraln Dealers' as
sociation to freese out the Worrall Grain
company and the collusion of the railroads
tn refusing- to arant elevator altes to this
company, T. D. Worrall Friday morning
rontlnued hia testimony before Notary
Pearaall In his endeavor to prove his charge
of combination in restraint of trade against
the line elevator Arms of Nebraska.
The further taking of testimony was ad
journed Friday afternoon until Monday
morning at 10 o'clock.
Mr. Werrall took up his deposition again
Friday morning under the interrogation of
his attorney, F. 8. Howell. He testified
there were about 1,300 purchasing stations
In Nebraska that buy from farmers direct
and that the last report from the secretary
of the Oraln Dealers' association gave the
members of "regulars" as only 770. That
there are about 400 dealern. owners and
operators of elevators not belonging to the
association, but work with the latter and
are members to all Intents and purposes,
except they do not pay dues.
Attitude Toward Him.
Describing the attlt ide of the association
toward the Worrall Grain company and In
dependent grain dealera, witness aald:
"Members of the association are very
anxious and bend their energies to bring
about a condition like this: That the prices
paid the farmer for grain at all stations
where there In an elevator shall be the
same as, the surrounding stations, barring
the possible difference In freight rates to
the markets. This Is done for the purpose
of preventing friction and to prevent one
point from paying more than another point,
thereby causing each one to get the grain
that belongs to that point, and to prevent
any friction in prices that would necessi
tate a misunderstanding between dealers
in regard to prices that should be paid.
"Since the filing of the suit by the Wor
rall Grain company against the Omaha
Elevator company and others on June 17,
190S, Secretary H. G. Miller told me In the
presence of J. E. Van Dorn that he didn't
know any difference between a regular
and Irregular dealer. Prior to that time
the difference was this: That no regular
dealer should recognise an Irregular dealer
on the broad and humane principle of do
ing business and living and let live, but
If he could, da business with the Irregular
and mnke the Irregular lose money In the
business transactions they had together,
he was at liberty to do all the business
with him that ha possibly could. If It
couldn't be done In this way he was abso
lutely to refrain from having any business
dealings of any kind, but waa to use his
best endeavor to cause him to lose all the
money he possibly could, while engaged In
this business, so as to get him out.
Position of tbe Railroads.
"The attitude of the TJnion Faclflo has
been not to give any altea for farmers' as
sociations or Independent dealers unless a
combination of circumstances brought
about a condition whereby they were com
pelled to give It, and in some Instances
after an action had been begun to compel
them to do so. That has been the attltudo
of the Northwestern, also. The Kock
Island has positively refused and Is refusing
yet to grant thise concesslgns. About
three years ago the B. & M. took the same
stand, but since the management haa
changed, or since the Hill Interests came
Into control, the Burlington has been more
liberal and Is giving more show as the days
come and go, and Is not refusing sites to

Witness told how the secretary of the
Nebraska Grain Dealers' association in
structed all members to notify him when
ever a car was loaded at his station by a
former Irregular shipper, giving number of
car, destination and consignee. He would
then try to have the consignee refuse to
handle, or if a first car, to have It handled
at a loss to the shipper. If the consignee
did not meet the demands he would be
"bulletined" to members of the association
and the latter cautioned not to have any
business dealings with him further. At
every district and annual meeting the
names of the rebellious dealers would be
read, so as to keep the bars up.
Life and Death Matter.
"In purchasing grain from dealers In Ne
braska that were members of the associa
tion, we were told they couldn't do busi
ness with us because they had heard we
had seen fit to handle grain from farmers'
elevator organizations, and if that waa to
be our attitude they would refrain from
doing business with us, for they considered
this a life and death matter a matter
they would have to fight to the bitter end,
because If these farmers' organisations
erected elevators and got Into the grain
business at as many as fifty or seventy-five
points In the state, located at the right
places. It would curtail their profits, and
thereby their property would depreciate In
valua. That It was very essential they
aliould control tills business at the terminal
end as well as the buying In the country.
Bo they at once concluded this must be
done, and th;y would have to pursue the
same course toward the receiver that they
did to the farmers' elevator companies In
the country and would have to bar him
out of the markets In Chicago, St. Loula,
Kansas City, or while they couldn't exactly
bar him out, fix It so he would not be able
to receive the true worth and value of
what they had to sell."
Worrall said that before his company
came under the ban of the association he
received card bids generally from the trade
in St. Louis, Chicago and other cities, but
they have all ceased except one, the
Atchison Live Stock company at Atchison,
He said that customers of the firm gave
as an excuse for not doing business that,
the Worrall company was under the ban
of the association, which Is the "tightest
organization or association In Nebraska or
any state In the union," and they must be
very careful how they did business and the
amount. He defined a "line house" as one
that operated more than Ave elevators. He
said "things had loosened up quite a good
deal," and a better outlet furnished for
grain from the Worrall company since the
suit was started. Representatives of the
Rock Island and Great Western roads had
approached htm on the subject since the
suit was begun.
"Did any of those who refused to deal
with you give any other reason for so re
fusing except that yoti were independent?"
"No, sir," responded Worrall, emphati
cally. "In April. 1306. the president of the Ne
braska Grain Dealers' association, at that
time Mr. Bell of David City, a good friend
of mine, a man I owe more to for my par
tial success In the grain business than
any other individual In the state, came to
me and asked me to go with him into a
dark cellar or Into a basement, and said
that be wanted to have a heart-to-heart
talk wtth me. He told me what waa being
duue and advised me nutate go to tbe an
nual meeting of the association along with
other receivers, as there were quite a num
ber there, because, ho said, 'If you go you
are going to be humiliated, and my advice
to you Is to stay away.' He told me they
had passed the word along the line and
the word they had passed would be In
jurious to me. He thought I had better
Join and become a member ef the asso
ciation, so as to reinstate myself. I posi
tively refused. He says: 'We have come
to the parting of the ways; I've got to
do one thing or the other. I've got to re
frain from doing business with you or get
out of the Grain Dealers' association.'
From that time on to the present we have
not done one penny's worth of business
H. Ik Alden of Raymond told me that
If he had got Information over the "phone
from Omaha that I waa bidding farmers
In advance he would not have shipped me
two cars of corn."
The witness said a doten or fifteen
forged or counterfeit letters, represented
to have been sent out by his company to
the trade, were sent In to him by persons
receiving them. This forgery was a copy
of a circular letter sent out by the Worrall
Grain company describing plans for the
future and getting grain direct from the
producers, so as to circumvent the asso
ciation. Worrall sent none of his letters
to members of the association, but re
ceived the number he stated of the coun
terfeits back from members. ,
