DEALERS WILL STAN PAT
IMPLEMENT MEN REFUSE TO
RECOGNIZE FARMERS' EX
CHANGE A S ENTITLED TO
Local implement dealers say they are
not worrying over the charges which
have been preferred against the Min
nesota Eetail Implement Dealers' as
sociation by the Minnesota farmers'
exchange. The Farmers' exchange com
plained to the governor that the deal
ers' association has issued a letter ask
ing members of the association not to
sell to members of the exchange. The
dealers state that such action would bte
perfectly natural and proper, and that
they do not see where the attorney
general, to whom the complaint has
been referred, can find any cause for
The Retailers' association ,was
formed last March for the protection
of dealers in the implement business.
The Farmers' exchange is an organiza
tion which tertds to eliminate the re
tailer and is, therefore, hardly an in
stitution which the retailers would care
to support. The exchange has district
-urchasing agents or managers, and all
members buy their machinery and other
goods thru him. In this way they claim
wholesale prices and in many instances
are able to get them.
Some time ago T. F. Murrjhy of Lit
tle Falls, secretary of the retailers'
association, wrote to all the local job
bers asking their opinion of the ex
change. I is stated that most of the
jobbers replied that they were not in
favor of the exchange and would not
sell it. These letters- in turn, it isbe
stated, were combined in a letter to
the members of the retail association,
and it is a copy of this letter which
has caused. the complaint to the gov
The jobbers and the retailers assert
that in taking action against the ex
change and asking their members not
to sell to members of the exchange
they are merely protecting: themselves.
If 'the members of the Farmers' ex
change wish to buy implements at the
regular retail price they can get them.
If they wish to get them at wholesale
in retail lots, thus cutting out the
small dealer, they will not be able to
buy of members of the Implement. Deal
ers' association. The movement has
been extended to the hardware trade
FO NE W GA LINE
Plowing by electricity is the newest
use to which' the juice'' has been put.
It is being done in Minneapolis by the
street railway company. Eesidents and
pedestrians along the new Lake street
line have been commenting on the
scheme and while it is a success as
practiced now, it is hardly possible that
the farm horse will be run out of busi
ness for a while at least.
In building the new Lake street line
a single track and wire were placed
first, for the purpose of distributing
material for the completing of the
work. When it came to breaking the
ground for the other track, the en
gineers conceived the novel idea of
plowing by trolley car. An outri\?er
was built on one of the big supply cars
and a plow attached. All that is
necessary now is to keep the current
on and steer the plow. There are no
sto^s for rest, nor does it make any
difference how hard the ground is.

BUTTED A STREETCAR
One of the big automobile trucks of
the Pillsbury-Washburn company col
lided with a streetcar at the .intersec
tion of Main street and Central ave
nue at 8 o'clock this morning. The
truck was not damaged. "It was the
car that jumped."
The truck, heavily loaded with flour,
came down Main street toward Central
avenue. The driver could not see the
approaching car on the east-bound
track. He was watching another car
on the west-bound track. He started
to beat the west-bound car to the right
side of the street and pulled, in front
of the east-bound car. There was a
lively clanging of bells and the driver
of the truck turned it partially aside
on to the car and endeavored to get out
of the way. The west-bound car was
threatening to ram the truck' in the
rear, but the driver stuck by the big

car had too much speed and struck the
The truck never budged The oar
came to a sudden stop and the passen
gers sat up straighter than they had
intended to. The truck rolled out of
harm's way and across the bridge. The
car had merely scarred the bumpbar
on the auto, and had it been going
faster, would! doubtless have had much
the worst of the collision.

He Will Discuss "The East and. the
The Stanley Hall lyceum course closes
tonight at the First Unitarian church
with a lecture by the eminent lecturer,
Dr. Toyokichi Iyenaga,,now of the Uni
versity of Chicago. This course of six
lectures has been one of the finest
courses of lectures given in Minneapolis
for years. Besides bllng ah exceed
ingly witty speaker. Dr. Iyenaga pos
esses a wide and intimate knowledge of
eastern affairs, which, coupled with his
college training in the United States,
makes him competent to compare the
two civilizations somewhat fairly.
His subject tonight is The East and
the West,'" in which he discusses the
revolutionary influences of the# Eusso
Japanese war the problems raised by
the closer contact of the east' and the
west the fundamental principles that
separate the east from the west the
differences in the aptitudes of the east

cance of the present contact, caused
by the Russo-Japanese war.

KING SAW RIOTS
Detective Say They
Caused by Toughs.
Norman W. King, the former Minne
apolis detective who was in Chicago
during the teamsters' strike, returned
to Minneapolis yesterday. The
ities." said he,
'have the strike well
hand at the present time. As usual,
the bums and toughs, who are only too
pleased to get a chance to make trou
ble, were the chief rioters. At that,
tho, I saw but little real trouble and
that was a demonstration against some
negroes on Polk street."
Mr. King is thoroly incensed at the
indiscriminate manner in which he has
been quoted and the romances which
some Chicago correspondent has built
about him. He states that he never
gave out any interviews and was there
merely to look after the property of
some eastern clients who were not di
rectly involved in any way, but never
theless wished additional police protec
