Little bciidlngs are In piogtess all
the time the world over. The "Immov
able" hills are bowing and scraping
to each other constantly. Kvery even
ing, as the dew settles In the willcyti
between them, they nod one to an
other. So, likewise, do the mountains,
even to a greater extent. Otavlty Is
tugging all the time. And In London,
ton, where earthquake .-lensatlons nro
practically unknown, the earth bends
daily, and the buildings, like the hills
and the mountains, nod to their friends
opposite when the morning ttalllo be
gins. On Sunday, usually, their man
ners take a rest, excepting In such
places as Petticoat l.ane. where busi
ness nourishes In as lively a fiitdiion
as In Paris. Heine said that even the

First when he entered Berlin. This
was Imaginative, yet truthful, for Ihe

The best nourished Individual, other

those which lead the progress of the
world,' says Dr. Wiley In Everybody's
Magazine. An abundance of food Is
to he regarded as the essential founda

and national aggrandizement. Thus
the very condition of affairs which

In the Individual and nation brings
them to the verge of dlaster, because
It Is easy -when you have enough to get
too much. I am not a believer In the
doctrlno of going away from tho table
hungry. One object of eating Is to
satisfy hunger, because hunger Is the
natural nilentor which tells of the
wants of tho system. Satisfaction of
hunger, however. Is not gluttony. The
dangers from overeating arc not bo

PLAINTIFFS HAVE A FIELD
DAY IN LUMBER CASE.
General Managor of the Defendant
Company Is Induced to Affirm Sub
stantially All tho Contentions of
the Plaintiffs Conduct of somo of
tho Defendants Characterized as
Stealthy, Unfair and Ungontlo
manly in Ono of Major Wnrron's
Addresses to tho Court.
Substantially all that Is claimed by
the plaintiffs In the Injunction case ot
O. D. Simpson, William Council and
T. ;. Jones against the Cherry ltlvcr
Hootn ntid Lumber company, C. P. Da
vidson, l' L. J'cck and others, was
admitted yesterday, by F. L. Peck,
when he wan cross examined by the
plaintiff's side, In tho continuation ot
the hearing before Judge J. W. Car
The plaintiff's! arc suing to prevent
the consummation of a deal by which
the defendants will deprive them ot
$7.0fl0 worth of the Cherry Ulver
Hoom and Lumber company stock, for
which they hold options.
When the company was first pro-
jected It pet aside STii.OOO worth of the
slock, divided II Into three parcels ot
$LTi,f)0O each, nnd authorized C, D.
Simpson, one of the officers ot tho
company, to take three calls for this
stock and dispose ot It nt liar lo cer
tain parties connected with the Haiti
more & Ohio road, whom they deemed
It wise to Interest In the company.
Mr. Simpson gave the option to an
ofllcer ot the naltimoro & Ohio, and
whllo they were In the hitter's posses
sion tho lumber company, with his
assistance secured n very favorable
contract with tho railroad for curry
ing lis product to market and for
the construction of a spur from Its
main line to the scene of the lumber
company's proposer operations.
DISPOSED OF OPTIONS.
Tho Baltimore & Ohio party who
held the options disposed of them
some time after the deal for the fa
vorable contract had been successfully
consummated. The purchaser In turn
put them up for sale and tho three
plaintiff's bought them In. However,
when they went with their calls to pur-
chitse the stock, tho secretary-treasurer
of the company, C. P. Davidson,
would not lecognlzo them. A cash
continuing tender was made by tho
plaintiffs' nttorneys to Mr. Davidson
cm July 11. lost. Ho admitted that
the stock was still In his charge, but
would not transfer to the holders of
One wevjk later, a large majority of
the stockholders met in a hurriedly
railed meeting, rescinded the action
by which JTu.nnn worth of the stock
xx as set aside to be dlspot-ed of at par
to the holders of the options, and
proceeded forthwith to parcel out the
stock among themselves, taking It at
par x-alue. Offers of JJflO for each
$100 share wore at that time being
This meeting. It Is claimed by the
plaintiffs, xvas Irregular, In that it
was called by notices marked at 7:n
p. in., July 17. for S.::0 o'clock on the
morning of July IS, when the presi
dent of the company, J. "W. Oakford
nnd Henry Belln and other directors
who xvere supposed to he unfavorable
to the repudiation of tho company's
former action, were away from tho
a liurmY-rr mkktino.
On that same morning the parties to
this hurriedly called meeting organ
ised a previously projected company,
called the Fnlted States Lumber com
pany, a trust concern which xvas to
combine all three of the big lumber
companies. In which the Pocks, David
son and others had heavy holdings,
namely tho J. J. Newman Lumber
company, of Mississippi: the lacka-
wanna Lumber company, which oper
ates In Potter county, and the Cher
ry niver Homn and Lumber company,
of "West Virginia.
They arbitrarily fixed the price the
stock of these three companies should
bring In the now company, depressing
that of the Cherry IUver company In
which they xvere tho least Interested
and Inflating that of the Lackawanna
and Newman companies in xvulch they
had considerably more extensive bolil
liics. Vlth the $7.".,000 worth of stock now
at Issue the defendants were enabled
to more successfully carry out their
scheme. It practically Is tho balance
ot power as between tho contending
parties. For this reason tho suit Is
not for damages but for specific per
formance of the option contracts.
Without this stock, the previously
acquired holdings of the plaintiffs will
be subject to further arbitrary treat
ment nt the bands of tho defendants,
It Is claimed. The Injunction prnyod
for Is therefore to compel tho oflleers
of the company to honor the option
jin, rr.cK examined.
Mr. reck, tho general manager of
the Cherry niver company, was un
nble to attend tho previous hearing
nnd yesterday's session was particu
larly to secure his testimony.
Clever questioning by Major Everett
Warren, xvho, xxlth James II. Torrey, is
counsel for the plaintiffs, Induced Mr.
Peck to nfllrm, reluctantly, but never
theless satisfactorily to the plaintiffs,
practically all their contentions.
He ndmlttcd the authorization to Mr.
Simpson to dispose of the options In
question and thut as a icsiilt of Mr.
Simpson's work, special rates xvere se
cured with the railroad company. A
very material reduction In rates, lie ad
mitted, was secured to the lumber
company's "clumping grounds," wnsn
Ington, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
Inquiry Into the operations of tho
I'nlted States Lumber company, the
trust organized by the defendants to
absorb the three others, to the disad
vantage of tho Cherry Ulver company,
In which they xvere the least Intel ested,
Major Warren brought out from Mr.
Peck that tho Pecks hold only $100,000
worth of the $1,000,000 stock of the
Cherry Valley company, which was to
bring only $1S0 a share In tho combine,
while in the Lackawanna company.
which wus to bring $M0 a share, they
hold $175,000 of tho $750,000 stock, and
In the Newman company, which nn to
bring $1S0 a share, they held $100,000 of
Tho Pecks nnd Davidson nnd their
"cronies," ns Major Wnrren dubbed
them, hold pretty much all of tho Lack
awanna stock, which xvas given so de
cided n preference.

Mr. Peck got his notice to attend the
meet lug on the day previous, between
1 and r. o'clock In the afternoon. The
notice! that were sent by mall were
postmarked 7.S0 p. in. Tho meeting was
held nt 8.;i0 a. in., In advance of the
hour that business men usually get to
their olllces and reach their mail. The
witness admitted he made no Inquiries
as to whether or not Messrs. Belln,
Council, Simpson or Oakford had re
ceived notice ot the meeting. "All 1

In an argument lelntlve to the ad
mission of testimony regairilng this
meeting, Major Warren characterized it
as a "stealthy proceeding" on the part
of the Pock-Davidson faction to get
possession ot the stock belonging to
the plalntilfs nnd parcel It out among
Mr. IVtk admitted that the stock xvas
thus parcelled out, and that he got a
block of forty-five shines. He got them
for $l,r00. Offeis were made for the-
dtoc-k some time prior to this, which
would place his profit on this deal at
an even 10d per cent.
Kefcrrlug further to this meeting,
Major Wairen said: ."It was done be
hind our backs, Illegally, Improperly,
unfairly and, I may say, ungentle
manly." SIC.NED AN AflP.EEMENT.
After this meeting xvas concluded the
Peck-Davidson people got together nnd,
putting the finishing touches to their
I'nlted States Lumber combine, signed
nn ngt cement to transfer their hold
ings In the Cherry Ulver company lo
the trust, at the figures mentioned
They then endorsed a note for the
I'nlted Staten Lumber company xxlth
which It could buy from them the L'.OiiJ
of the lu.000 shines of tho Cherry ltlvcr
company which they turned over to
themselves, the I'nlted States Lumber
A resolution was passed that if tho
other stockholders In the Cherry Ulver
company did not trade their stock for

Inside of ten days, at the arbitrary
figure fixed by the aforementioned
night-blooming meeting, they would be

P.lver stock of the Peek-Davidson peo

consummated. President Oakford, of
the Cherry River company, refusing to
be a party to such a transaction, has
refused to sign the certificates.
The only other witness xvas Grant
Pelton, of J. B. llussell & Co, His tes
timony xx as thnt there have been very
few transactions as yet In Cherry niver

testimony Is In support of the conten
