Judges wers declared to be "scandal
ously underpaid" and the delays In set
tling lawsuits in this country were at
tributed to cumbersome methods of pro
cedure rather than to Judges by various
speakers today, ' ;
"Most of the criticism which has started
the movement for ths recall of Judges re
sults from dissatisfaction in the slow
ways In which cases get through the
courts," said Charles Blood im it h of Kan
sas, "Thl tardiness is due to modes of
procedure and not to the judges. It is our
belief that recall of judges Is not neoes
sary to remedy the causes which have
started the restlessness of the public over
Judicial procedure. Ths improvement will
be and is being accomplished."
"We should keep our Judges from temp
tation," asserted Henry D. Estabrook of
New Tork. "An occasional Judge ; is
found wanting because all judges are
human, I am Inclined to think that a
judge should be permitted no patronage
whatever, whereas We are forever thrust
ing upon them powers of appointment be
cause we want the assurance ot their
great abilities and undoubted probity;
There should, be no perquisites to , the
judicial office, -but In lieu thereof We
should pa? our judges salaries .worthy
"As it Is we gst Infinitely better judges
than wt dastrve."

SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 28,-Evldencs
purporting to show how lumber manu
facturers and wholesalers" were kept in
formed as to what retailers in the middle
west wore considered "unethical" and
what firms were supplying them with
lumber was Introduced at today's hear
ing of the government's antl-truet suit
against the Northwestern Lumbermen's
V, V. Becker of Seattle,' secretary of
the Pacific Coast Shippers' association,
Identified on the Wltness'stand much cor
respondence that passed between him and
WUlard G. JIollls of "Minneapolis, secre
tary of tho Northwestern Lumbermen's
association, and A. L. Porter of Spokane,
secretary of the Western Retail Lumber
men's association. ,
Through this correspondence, which told
of the shipment by various manufactur
ers and wholesalers on the coast, of lum
ber to unethical dealers and mall order
houses in tho middle west, the govern
ment sought to show that a oomplete line
of communication was maintained be.
tween Mr, Hollis and Mr. Pprter and the
manufacturers. Shippers on the coast,
It was brought out, were regularly ad
vised by Mr, Becker through circular let
ters of the standing of the .retailers In
the mlddlo west Copies of these drcu.
lars were introduced as evidenoe and were
Identified by Mr, . Becker,
Before Mr. Becker was sworn, Clark
McKercher, counsel for the government,
announced that the witness was not in
volved in the case.
Selling Consumer Fatal.,
Belling directly to a consumer brought
about the ruin of the Western Washing
ton Lumber company, which once did a
thriving business in the middle west, ac
cording " to the testimony of M. Ellas.
Ellas and Frank S. Loeb organized the
Western 'Washlngton company early in
1908 and it did a large wholesale business
with line companies, Ellas said, until the
middle of 1808, when It became known that
the company had sold a oar of lumber to
I. w. Trust, a consumer of Osceola,' la.
Immediately following this, he said, it
business with retailers dwindled rapidly,
until early In lltlO it had entirely disap
peared. As soon as it lost Its yard cus
tomers it openly bid for contractors'
trade, but was unable to retrieve its lost
fortune, and in March, 1912, went into
the" hands of a receiver, he said.
Much correspondence was introduced be
tween Mr. Ellas, Loeo and retail dealers
of the middle west regarding the shipment
to the Osceola consumer. A letter was
read, written by Mr. Loeb to F. P. Becker,
eeoretary of the Pacific Coast Shippers'
association, in which it was alleged that
the Western Washington Lumber com
pany did not know tha car in question
was to be delivered to a consumer.
Admits Statements False.
"Th statements In that letter were
false," said Ellas. "We knew all the
time that Trust was a consumer, but we
tried to lie but of It. Fear prompted us
to write that letter,"
Ellas said that he first learned that the
trade generally was aware of the trans
action with Trtst when- he received a
1 Clipping from the SoouW '-Detroit lumber
journal, telUng of the deafc Tho dipping
was sent by Ooorte E. Lang, the Minne
apolis agent of the Western Washington
company, and across the back was writ
ten, "Cut these people out; they are no
good," and signed "Flynn." said the
witness. - Flynn, he explained, was con
rected with the Bt. vAnthony Lumber
company of 'Minneapolis, one of their
best .'customers, i : ,';.;.'' ;.;.! j ;

Walter S. Jardine has a better notion
of the productivity of the soil of No.
braska than he ever had. He has In
vented a plow for the purpose- of aiding
the farmer to turn his soil Into dollars,
and be owns a princely estate over in
Iowa, where he has about tlOO.OOO invested,
but ' it Is neither of these Institutions
that has awakened him, A few years ago
he bought some below-grade lots out in
the west part of town, and his wife took
a fancy to the location. So Walter ne
gotiated with a grading contractor and
had the waste from a couple of big ex
cavations dumped onto the lots, making
a fill of about twenty-five feet. Then he
built a home and moved out there. Last
spring the pride of the Jardine home, a
boy of unusual enterprise, caught the
gardening fever at school and asked his
father's permission to plant a patch in
the back yard.
."Go as far as you like," said Walter
S., with that magnificent generosity that
narks his dealings with other folks.
"I'd like to plant some canteloupes."
said the boy.
"Fine!" exclaimed Walter, his paren
tal heart swelling with pride, as he con
templated tbe enterprise of his son. "Fine,
and I'll give you a dollar apiece for all
you' raise." ; .
Walter watched, the boy prepare his
garden patch on what he thought was a
claybank, and watohed its progress. But
not sharper than the boy, Sunday night
the boy counted fifty-five promising can
teloupes on five thrifty vines, and now
W. S. is figuring with some unregeneratj
to go out and rob the melon patch, so
as to save him the penalty of not know
ing that the soil around Omaha Is several
hundred feet deep and fertile all the way

Mayor Dahlman will present a resolu
tion at the meeting of the city council
Tuesday directing the city engineer to re.
port bn the probable cost of two substreet
comfort stations at Sixteenth and Harney
streets and Sixteenth and Douglas streets.
Mayor Dahlman says he expects a re
port on the project by the middle of No
vember. He believes two such stations,
placed beneath the Street in busy sec
tions, will cost about $15,000. .
No attempt will be made to build these
this winter, but after the first of the year
the mayor intends to push this request
until he secures some action. Establish
ment ot such stations was one of the
mayor's issues in the campaign. "
