JOBBERS I RE
DOING THE WORK
FEW LARGE CONCERNS WILL EN-
TER THE WOODS.
Peculiar Feature of Logging Operations
Now Assuming Magnitude in the
Peninsula for the SeasonSouth I
Calling on the North for Skilled Men.
Special to The Journal.
Calumet, Mich., Nov. 1.Operations in north
ern peuiusula woods are gradually becoming of
greater magnitude. While it will be several
weeks before the work is in full swing, many
camps have been started, and operators here
and there have commenced their winter's cut.
A neculiar feature about the situation Is the
importance of the jobbers. Many of the lrjrger
concerns have manifested little inclination to go
into the woods themselves, but will have the
most of their work done by jobbers. The N.
Ludlngton company, the Marinette Lumber com
pany and the Sawyer-Goodman company will get
most of their logs out thru jobbers.
The Worcester Lumber company of Chassell
has opened a camp near Mass City, Ontonagon
county. P. R. Eber is in charge and forty men
are employed. The Hamilton & Merryman com
pany Is one of the few large concerns that will
get out all of its logs Itself.
George B. Morley and W. N. Mershon, lower
Michigan lumbermen, have bought 24,000 acres
of spruce and hardwood lands In Luce, Chippewa
and Mackinac counties from A. M. Chesbro of
Toledo, Ohio. Companies both south and west
are recruiting their skilled forces from the ranks
of the upper Michigan woodsmen. In the last
two weeks, several men, principally camp fore
men, have, left Michigan for Florida, Alabama
William Kent of Chicago has bought from the
C. II. Worcester company 6.000 acres of land in
Menominee county for $15,430.87. Much of the
tract is cut-over land, and some portions of it
contain timber. It is understood that Mr. Kent
will sell the lands for colonization purposes.
A. W. Clark, formerly of Menominee but re
cently manager of the Diamond Match company's
interests at Green Bay, has departed for Califor
nia, where he will be assistant manager of the
company's new plant at Chlco. The Diamond
Match company has purchased several Immense
tracts of land, mostly in the sugar-pine belt,
and a town has been laid out to be known as
Sterling City. An immense mill, probably the
most modern in the world, has been built.
Operations at the Worcester Lumber company's
shinglemlll at Chassell have been discontinued
for the winter. In two weeks the sawmill will
bo closed for four weeks, during which repairs
will be made.
GOOD FIELD FOR LABOR
Peninsula's Demand for Men Greater
Than in Many Years.
HOUGHTON, MICH.The demand for work
ingmen in the upper peninsula is greater than for
several veins. The boom in the copper district
that started in 18V Hnd ended in 1900, coused
a scarcitv of men while it lasted, but was fol
lowed, naturally, by surplus of labor. Fortu
nately, the iron districts were looking for men
about the time the copper district got its full
(,unta, but many miners were let out on the
Iron ranges last year, where mining has been
progressing under check until recently.
Most of the LIg iron mines are putting on
extra men at present, and are doing this at
a time of the year, shortly before the close of
lake navigation, when forces are being lessened,
as a ml?, in even the best of years. Some of the
surface men eln taken on will be let ont dur
ing the winter, but the principal demand is for
miners, and these will be retained permanently.
The copper mines also. have Increased forces by
about 1,000 men the "past year, and are em
ploying more than 16,000 workmen, which is a
materially larger force than ever before in the
history of the lake copper district, and com
pares with less than 7,500 men eight years
The lumbering industry, once a strong second
to copper and iron mining In the peniuusla, has
seeu lis beat days, but the forces employed in
the camps and at the mills and shipping yards
aggregate several thousand men.
CREAMERY FOR CROOKSTON
More Than Half the Stock Already Sold
to Business Men.
CROOKSTON, MINN.For some time the
building of a creamery has been under consid
eration by the Commercial Union, and it is now
assured. It will undoubtedly be established upon
farmers' co-operative Hues, and with the im
mense territory tributary to the city it is not
likely that there will be any necessity for the
managers to io out of a radius of ten or twelve
miles to secure milk provided the farmers can
be induced to take stock.
More than htilf of the stock has been disposed
of to business men. The matter is being pushed

SOLD SAME MORTGAGE TWICE
More Frauds Traced to Defaulting
Cashier of an Iowa Falls Bank.
IOWA FALLS. IOWA.A legal battle that
promises to bristle with sensational features was
commenced in the district court today and in
volves the fight for a mortgage or its equivalent
that was sold twice by Edward O. Soule, the
defaulting cashier of the Home Savings bank,
who is now in Anamosa prison. This is one of
several cas^-s growing out of Soule's defalcation
involving $54,000. and is brought by W. H.
Sherwood, a well known farmer, who seeks
to recover from the institution of which Soule
was the trusted official.
Several years ago Sherwood was looking for
a place for a little surplus money that he had
deposited in the savings bank, hoping to in
crease his interest by buying a mortgage. Soule
told him he had a mortgage on some town prop
erty in this city that he would sell him for
$1,100. Sherwood bought the mortgage and
turned over the money. Soule telling him he
would keep the papers in the bank safe, and Sher
wood, having confidence in the institution and
its offi ers, consented.
Soule said he would send the assignment for
record, but it appears he did not do so. When
the interest came due, Sherwood called at the
bank for it and the same was credited on his
which will be offered as evidence,
ater, A. Biggs, also of this city, sought an
Investment of about $1,000, and approached Soule,
asking him if he could place it. Soule had just
what Biggs was looking for and sold him the
same mortgage he had sold to Sherwood a year
or more previous. Biggs said he would take
the papers nnd, accepting the assignment, placed
them on record and now holds the mortgage and
all the papers, while Sherwood only had his
passbook to show that he ever had any interest
in the loan.
An important business change has resulted in
the reorganization of the Hame Savings bank.
The deal has been pending for some time and
was negotiated by W. S. Walker, formerly of
Grlnnell, Iowa, who will be cashier under the
new regime. Most of the old stockholders re

Pes Moines, Iowu, Nov. 1.Despite the fact
that Matt Hunter, slayer of Homer Holland,
Iowa's athlete, has been in the state's prison
at Anamosa for four years, his term has not
yet commenced. Warden Jones has
just made his last report to the
state board of control, caUlng attention
to the fact that Hunter is indolent and will not
work. The court's sentence to twenty-five years
in the penitentiariy called for hard labor. The
sentence, according to Warden Jones, does not
begin until the work begins.
"The state of Iowa owes me a living, and I
will not engage in manual labor in this peni
tentiary," is Matt Hunter's prison philosophy.
"I am innocent of murder and I ought not to be
within these walls. I would refuse to come
here if there were any way of getting out of
It. The law is stronger than I am, and I am
forced to stay in prison. But work is a, part of
the sentence which I can get out of. You can
not make me work unless I will. So long as I
feel my innocence I will not work. I will lie

FARMERS' HAY BURNED
Prairie Fire Near Revillo Gets Beyond

started ttnee miles south of town. On its west

farmers losing all of this year's supply. It is

JOLLIEST OF CAMPAIGNS
Free Rides for Everybody to Mitchell
ALPENA, S. D.At no time in the history
of this state has there been such a general
moving about by the people as there is at
present. All the railroads entering Pierre and
Mitchell are giving free rides to everybody.
On the James fiver division of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul four passenger trains, of
from ten to thirteen coaches each, are run dally,
carrying, without charge, hundreds of persons
to and from the two cities working for capital
honors. All the trains are crowded to their
fullest capacity with men, women and children,
who at every station good-naturedly cheer for
Pierre and Mitchell in the wildest confusion.
It is the jolllest campaign on record, and
no. one dares bet on the outcome.
MR. STREEIER REPLIES
DENIES ALL TH E ALLEGATIONS
SET OUT I N THE CARLSON CASE
AGAINST HIS COMPANY.
To the Editor of the Journal.
Larimore, N. D., Oct. 81.Referring to a dis
patch from Grand Forks in a recent issue of
your paper regarding the Carlson case, wlU say
that while we are sorry to be obliged even to
appear to be guilty of conduct that savors of
trying lawsuits thru the public prints, this state
ment itself Is so palpably malicious, so grossly
false and so evidently made and printed with
the object and purpose of injuring us that we
deem it essential to state a few facta In con
nection with it.
rirstOur dealing with Mr. Carlson thruout
has been fair and he has understood everything
In connection with It. We have not overcharged
him in any way, and we have not received a
cent of money nor a bushel of grain that he
has not received due credit for. We did not
hoodwink him into signing "padded" papers
which represented more money than was due
us, nor do the papers represent more than is
due us. The transaction was thoroly. under
stood by Mr. Carlson in every detail, and the
figures In connection with it are absolutely cor
rect. W have performed every part and por
tion of the contract and agreement with him

we have furnished him with everything that we
agreed to furnish him in our contract and agree

SecondThere are no unsatisfied mortgages
