WHEAT MEN COMBINE
New Consolidation in the West to
Control 43 Houses.
J. Q. ADAMS COMPANY SELLS OUT
Centennial Company of Spokane One
of the l'lirohanfM-To Handle
Millions of Bushels.
Special to The Journal.
Spokane, Wash.. May 4.—By a deal just
consummated. E. Car«lin, manager of the
Pacific coast division of warehouses of the
J- Q. Adams company, has acquired an
interest in the Centennial company
of Spokane and Seattle. The Centennial
people get a half interest in the warehouse
line of the J. Q. Adams company in the
Pacific division by consolidating their
warehouses with those of the big ele
vator company, »nd the J. Q. Adams com
pany goes out of business as far as the
elevator line between Spokane and Se
attle Is concerned. It still retains a part
interest in the newly formed Seattle Graiu
company, ineorporate'l in Seattle Monday,
the remaining stockholders being T. Car
din and the Centennial Milling company.
The new combine will control three eleva
tors in eastern Washington, and expects
to handle i.WO.OuO bushels of wheat this
year.
•itz Thomsen. president of the Cen
tennial company, and Mr. Cardin were in
the city yesterday conferring with Samuel
Glasgow, secretary of the company. It
was tben that the nature of ihe deal was
learned. The growth of the Centennial
plants here and at Seattle has become so
fereat that the company did not care any
longer to remain dependent on outsiders
tor their supply of wheat. Accordingly
it began to look around and establish
warehouses of its own. To avoid collision
and for mutual benefit a consolidation was
formed.
The advantage to the Centennial Mill
company is in having an almost unlimited
supply of wheat, on which it gets first
call, thus minimizing the danger of getting
caught on amount. What it can not grind
will be sold to other companies. Secretary
Glasgow is authority for the statement
that 5,u00,000 bushels- of wheat will be
handled this year. By the transaction
Cardin retains practically the same situa
tion as he had for the J. Q. Adams peo
ple. In addition he acquires a personal
interest in the Centennial plants and is a
large stockholder in the Seattle Grain
company. The J. Q. Adams company, the
elevator king of Minnesota and the Da
kotas, consented to sell out entirely for a
morey consideration. "It gets no stock in
the Centennial mill," said Mr. Glasgow
yesterday. -There is no stock for sale or
tran fer. Money alone changed hands."
The warehouses of the J. Q. Adams com
pany consolidated in the recent deal lie
along the Great Northern between Spo
kane and Seattle. They number nineteen,
with capacities ranging from 20,000 to 75,
--000 bushels. The locations are Espanola,
Waukon, Edwall (2), Moscow, Harrington
Mohler i 2), Lamona (2), Odessa, Eph
rata, Wenattokee, Oronro, Brays Land
ing, Chelan Falls, Central Ferry, Bridge
port.
The warehouses of the Centennial Mill
ing company are located along the North
ern Pacific, numbering nine. Situations
are at Sprague, Harriston, Paha, Scott,
Ritzville (3), lona and Hatton.
Construction of fifteen more has started
or is intended, which will be placed at
points on the Central Washington and the
Spokane & Palouse branch. Two million
feet of lumber has been ordered from the
Phoenix mill and has been distributed at
various points where building is in pros
pect.

COMING CONFERENCE AT OMAHA
National Manager* Will Participate
and Outline the Policies
of the Parties.
Special to The Journ*l.
Omaha, Neb., May 4.—On the evening
of May 7 a conference of leading fusion
politicians will be held In Omaha. While
a majority will represent Nebraska, there
will be men of prominence in fusion ranks
from all parts of the union. W. J. Bryan
will be the leading figure, but with him
will be Tillman, Marion Butler. Towne,
Simpson of Kansas. General Weaver of
lowa, Stone of Missouri, Congressman
Champ Clark of Missouri and Sulzer of
New York. There will be an informal
banquet after the conference under the
auspices of the Peter Cooper Club of
Omaha.
The meeting is likely to be fraught with
great consequence to the populist and
democratic parties, and incidentally the
republican party, for upon it will probably
rest the decision of the fusionists to sepa
rate or to fuse in national and state poli
tics for another four rears.
Where Bryan Stands.
The chances are about even for dissolu
tion of the fusion forces. Mr. Bryan is
said to be unalterably opposed to any
division. He maintains that the only
hope of the fusion forces in any state in
the union or nationality is by combination
and continued combination. This feeling
is not shared by all the other fusionists,
however, even of populist or democratic
faith. In Nebraska, for instance, the
democrats assert that the populisms have
had all the spoils growing out of the com
bination and in a national way the popu
lists assert the democrats have secured
all the glory. in evidence of this the
populist leaders point to the fact that in
lSi»6 their man, Watson, was forced to
take a back seat for the democrats and
last year Mr. Towne was forced off the
ticket that the democrats might have full
sway. They point to the fact that in all
things Mr. Bryan was supreme and that
if in Nebraska and other states where
fusion applied, they received the lion's
share of the spoils it was nothing more
than they were entitled to because of
the loyalty of their support to Mr. Bryan.
But Nebraska democrats are by no
means satisfied. When the question of
gubernatorial timber was first being dis
cussed in 18<<4. Silas A. Holcomb, a popu
list district judge, was given the nomi
nation and with one exception the entire j
state ticket was made up of populists.
This combination in 1896 was given a
renomination and election, while four of
the six nominees for congress were popu
lists. Again, two years later, in 1898,
the populists placed Poynter in the guber
natorial chair, had all their men in state
offices, and four of the six congressmen.
In addition, Silas A. Holcomb was given
a position on the supreme bench. All the
democrats got during this reign of pros
perity for the fusion forces was the satis
faction of seeing Mr. Bryan given two
nominations for president. They were
forced to see the populists get all the
state offices in Nebraska, in return for
their support of Mr. Bryan. They didn't
like this.
Retains His Power.
In 1890 the gubernatorial vote stood:
Boyd (dem.), 70.800; Powers (pop), 69,700;
Richards (rep.), 68.000. Thus a combina
tion of the democratic and populist forces
made republican success in Nebraska a
very remote possibility. Of course a com
bination of the two forces lost some from
each which went to the republicans. How
ever, there can be no reasonable doubt
that the fusionists can carry Nebraska
this fall and next year elect a governor,
entire state ticket and a legislature. It
is said openly that Mr. Bryan will be a
candidate for governor next year, and
that then being in the chair he will ar
range everything for a fusion legislature
the following two years, with the design
of succeeding to the senatorial seat now
occupied by Deitrich.
All these theories, however, are not
being discussed by Mr. Bryan. He is a
power in Nebraska politics to-day and if
any one thinks he proposes to remain
quiet during the next national democratic
convention, they do not know the man.
Certainly he will hardly be found figuring
on being a candidate, but he proposes to
have something to say about the men who
are placed in control at that time. In
fact, this much Bryan does not deny. On
the contrary, he positively affirms that he
will take an active part in the political
affairs of his party in the next national
campaign. A feature of the conference ;
here Tuesday is that if Bryan and his im
mediate conferes decide that fusion will
not apply in Nebraska this fall, it is
hardly likely that fusion will be possible
in other states where this sort of thing
has been popular in the past. Thus the
conference here Tuesday becomes of pe
culiar interest in a national way.
Fusion Xeeessary (or Success.
Of course, if it Is possible for the re
publican managers to contribute to a dis
solution of the forces of fusion they will
do it. Bryan without fusion In Nebraska ,
would be as powerless as Sampson without
his hair. Representatives know this and
Bryan realizes It. The democrats could
not poll to-day over 60,000 votes In the
state, and the populists could not muster
that. Therefore the conference next
week is of peculiar interest to politicians
of both parties in Nebraska, and to na
tional managers. The banquet hall will
seat 300 people and most of those present
will be politicians of note.

FIRST NOME BOATS
Jeanie and the Nome City Start
From Puget Sound.
EXPECT TO REACH PORT MAY 20
Two-third* of the Pas«en*r«r-» Had
Been North Before—The Will
iam* Party.
Special to The Journal.
Tacoma, Wash., May 4—The first sail
ings from Puget Sound for the season of
1901 took place this week with the de
parture of the steamers Nome City. Cap
tain Dainels. and eJanie, Captain Mason,
with an aggregate of 157 passengers.
The Nome City i* operated by the Pa
cific Clipper line and the Jeanle by the
Pacific Steam Whaling company. It was
after 5 o'clock when the Jeanle cast off
her lines and backed out Into the stream,
turning her nose towards the famous gold
fields. She had put more than five feet
of space between her port side and the
dock when a Greek with disheveled hair
and hat in hand rushed breathlessly to
the edge of the wharf and with a mad
leap caught by his hands In the forward
rigging.
The crowd cheered lustily in apprecia
tion of his daring feet. He, in turn, faced
about and made graceful acknowledgement
of the congratulatory demonstration. The
catching of the Jeanle meant much for this
Greek, for he had more than forty tons of
freight aboard, which represented the sav
ings of many years. He had engaged to
go north as a trader.
It was three-Quarters of an hour after
the Jeanie's departure that the Nome City
sailed from the Arlington dock. The ves
sels were docked within less than a block
apart. This gave the crowd of curiosity
seekers and idlers a golden opportunity.
Fully 2,000 people visited the departing
ships during the course of the afternoon.
Fathers, mothers, wives, sisters, brothers
and sweethearts were there in great num
bers to bid farewell. Others went through
mere curiosity and for the sake of saying
that they had witnessed the sailing of the
first Nome steamers for the season.
It was noticeable that two-thirds of the
passengers were at Nome last year. The
crowd, in fact, included many of the
heaviest and best known operators of the
district.
G. W. Williams, a frontiersman, led
perhaps the most interesting party aboard
the Nome City, by reason of the mystery
surrounding the movements of Xhe expedi
tion. In the party were M. E. Battey, L.
A. Clark, D. Richards, E. Battey and H.
Caldwell. Their equipment comprised
fourteen head of horses. The destination
of the exposition, of which Williams is the
leader, is some place,,on the Arctic coast
above Cape Prince of Wales. The great
est secrecy as regards the destination was
maintained from the day Williams and
his associates reached Seattle, several
weeks prior to the sailing of the Nome
City. In purchasing his tickets he stipu
lated that his horses should be lowered
into the sea and allowed to swim ashore
in case the Nome City got near Cape
York in her effort to reach Nome. The
party took supplies for two years, paying
extremely high transportation prices for
both stock and freight.
Williams is an old-time placer miner
and operated in the Klondike. He claims
to have been the discoverer of Cheechaco
hill. He went from Dawson to his pres
ent destination in the winter of 1899-1900.
He admits having discovered extremely
rich placer diggings, and says it is his
purpose to organize the district before
others get on the ground.
The Jeanie sailed not only with a full
complement of passengers, but had all
the freight she could carry, about 800 tons.
Her cargo includes a tug. one steam
launch, one lighter, two knock-down light
ers and several dories.
Captain Mason will take the so-called
Inside passage to Cross sound and thence
10 Uyak bay on Kadiak island, where he
will pick up Lieutenant D. H. Jarvls, who
is to represent the treasury department
in a special capacity at Nome during the
coming season.
Following down the Aleutian islands,
Captain Mason will enter Bering sea by
way of Unimak pass. He will stop at
Dutch harbor and he hopes to reach Nome
by May 20 or earlier.
The Nome City took 1,000 tons of freight,
including eighteen horses, in addition to
fuel and supplies sufficient for a sixty-day
voyage. She goes by the open sea and to
Dutch harbor, for which she has four
passengers. An effort will be made to
reach Nome by May 20. returning June 10,
as the vessel is scheduled for a second
sailing on June 15.
CARLETO^-ST. OLAF
Sybtlrud of the Latter College First
in Oratory.
Special to The Journal.
Northfield, Minn.. May 4. —The second
annual Ware oratorical contest between
St. Olaf and Carleton seniors took place
in the Ware auditorium last evening. St.
Olaf won easily on its merits, and C. E.
Sybilrud was high man. His subject was
"China Regenerate." It was a masterly
production upon a happy theme.
E. C. A. Tundeen of Carleton won sec- i
ond place with the subject "The Struggle
for Liberty." The oration was a splen
did one, showing the struggle of mankind
aince the beginning of time for the price
less gem of liberty. Mr. Lundeen re
ceived $10.
Charles Burnett (ft Carleton college
was awarded third place, and received
a medal. His oration was upon "The
Anglo-Saxon." The part was well writ
ten and splendidly delivered.
The music was given by the Carleton
Glee Club and the St. Olaf band. The
judges upon thought and composition
were: Rev. J. F. Taicter of Rochester;
Professor H. A. Adrian, state normal,
River Falls, Wis.. and Editor J. S. Mc-
Lain of Minneapolis. .
The judges upon delivery were: Judge
Nathan Kingsley of Austin, J. A. Peter
son, Minneapolis, and Rev. J. M. Clary of
Minneapolis.
Last year the contest was won by Carle
ton, which was given first and third
places. These contests have become an
annual event between Northfleld's- tjvo
colleges and always awaken deep inter
est.
When the decision of the judges wa3
announced St. Olaf's contingency went
wild. They formed a procession, and,
headed by their band, marched through
the streets and up the hill to the college.
Carleton feels satisfied that she lost to
worthy opponents. Next year's contest
will be faster still; some of the men in
both colleges are already planning for it.
Teaching Firemen to Save Lives.
Professor eHnry McAdams of the New-
York fire department has spent nearly
twenty years in teaching firemen to save
life and In that period 25.000 have learned
his system. McAdams has trained nearly
every man in the New York service and in
all his experience only two men have been
injured. This a wonderful; these men
jump five, six and even seven stories at his
bidding. It takes nerve to throw your
self from a six story building even if there
is a small net to land in. A steady,
healthy nerve is cultivated by drinking
"Golden Grain Belt" beer, for it contains
the strength of bread*, and meat. It rests
the nerves and strengthens the body.
Come over to "The Brewery," see how it
is made, then have a case sent to your
home.

THE MINMArOEng TOTTRmtr
Music
But one more musical event of importance
remains, the Kneisel quartet concert, May 13,
given as the closing entertainment of the
Teachers' Club course. This rare treat is
being eagerly anticipated by all musicians,
for Kneisel's is a name to conjure with
among music lovers. It has been a matter
of deep regret when different organizations
and Individuals have failed season after
season in inducing the quartet to undertake
a western trip which should include Minne
apolis. Music lovers, therefore, are deeply
in the debt of the Teachers' Club, for it
required a large amount of patient work
and large expense to provide this unique
concert. It.was only possible by aiding in
arrangements to secure dates for the quartet
in St. Paul and Duluth.
The members of the quartet are Messrs.
Franz Kneisel, first violin; Karl Ondrlcek,
second violin; Louis Svecenski, viola, and Al
vin Schroeder, cello. All are leading mu
sU-ians In the Boston Symphony orchestra,
of which Mr. Kneisel is concertmaster. Not
only are they superb artists on their own in
struments, but they have had fifteen years'
experience together, during which time they
have had four orchestra rehearsals a week
and three or four quartet rehearsals. This
gives a perfect balance and harmony not
excelled by any musical organization ln the
world. The quartet is accounted ideal as
an interpretative medium for chamber music,
whii-h includes the greatest compositions
ever written.
Mr. Kneisel is a Roumanian, born of Ger
man parents in 1865. He was coneertmeister
of the Hoffburg theater orchestra in Vienna
and a member of a leading Berlin orchestra
before coining to this country. Mr. Snhroeder
is one of the greatest cellists ln the world
and has a beautiful instrument, aa rare in
powers and qualities as is himself.
The program is as follows:
Quartet in A Major, Op. IS, No. 5
Beethoven
Allegro; Menuetto: Andante cantabile;
Allegro.
"Molto Lento" (Sphaeren Musik), from
Qartet in C Minor Rubinstein
Scherzo, from Quartet iv E Minor, Op.
44. No. 2 Mendelssohn
"Lento." for Violoncello and Strings.. .Chopin
A. Schroeder.
Quartet in P Major, Op. 22 Tscaikovsky
Adagio moderato assai; Scherzo" (Allegro
giUEto); Andante ma non tanto; Allegro
con moto.
The sale of seats will open on Thursday
at the Metropolitan Music company.
The operetta "Snow-white and the Seven
Dwarfs," which was so successfully given
last week by the children's chorus of the
Johnson School of Music, will be repeated
Friday evening, May 10, in the school audi
torium. The repetition is made at the spec
ial request of many of the friends of the
children who were unable to hear the
operetta the first time owing to the numerous
other attractions that evening. The principal
parts will be taken by the same young peo
ple, and the special feature will be the
stage setting and ttfe beautiful costumes.
The rendition was so satisfactory in every re
spect as to fully merit the repetition and the
hall will undoubtedly be well filled the sec
ond time.
Misses Florence Xordale, Alma Lampe, Ma
belle P. Darrow and Tillie Beytien, pupils
of Gustavus Johnson, will give a piano re
cital Tuesday evening iv the school audi
torium to mark their completion of the
teachers' course. They will be assisted by
Miss Edua Kenkel and Miss Jessie Gillespie.
The Arion Musical society will give a May
festival Tuesday evening. May 14, in Century
Music hall, under the direction of Andreas
Rohne. A chorus of sixty voice 3 will be
assisted by Misses Selma Hamilton, Edna
Adams, Edyth Fortier, Clara and Etta Rue.
Jessie O. Hopkins. Kathleen Porter, Vera
Wagner, a female chorus and Axel John
stone.
The program to be given at the concert
arranged by the Young People's Society of
the Swedish Lutheran Bethlehem church,
Lyndale and Fourteenth avenues N, Wednes
day evening. Is of unusual Interest. As over
500 tickets have already been sold the con
cert promises to be a success financially as
well as artistically. The program will be
given by the Orpheus Singing society, Miss
Viola May Graves, Hiss Mabel Runge and J.
J. Appelon. Mrs. Blanch Booth-Riddell will
give readings and Miss Grayce Jungeu will
act as accompanist.
The members of the junior class of Miss
Margaret Drew gave a piano recital last
evening in the Minneapolis Classical school.
The numbers wore given In an excellent man
ner, creditable to both teacher and pupils.
The young people, who average about 12 years
of age. played without their notes and showed
considerable talent. Those who took part
were the Misses Katherine Drew, Edith Mc-
Donald, Katherine Pond, Gertrude Chandler.
Helen Martin, Mary Bacon, Caro Brown,
Caroline. Roberts and Ruth Brinley.
The April musicale at Villa Maria, Fronte
nac, was a pleasant affair. Those who took
part were the Misses Mary Cox, Luella War
ren, Evelyn Tregilgas, St. Paul; the Misses
MeClary. Hogue, Lacroix, Florence Garrett,
Minneapolis; the Misses Hitchcock, Maude
and Catherine McKinney. Cass Lake: Miss
Mayer, Bemidji; the Misses Mabel and Ger
trude Collins, Grand Forks; the Misses Mans
field and May Hoelscher, Duluth; Miss

Society and of the North Minneapolis Sing
ing School, under direction of George H.
Normlngton, will furnish a musical program
.next Friday evening in North Side high
school assembly hall. This entertainment is
for the benefit of Franklin school piano fund
and will be a repetition of the attractive
concert recently given in aid of Greeley
school. A special chorus by boys from St.
Mark's church choir will be one of the
features.
