Bates and Other Issueg at
Grand Forks.
1 Grand Forks, N\ D., Aufc. 31.Yes-
terday was Fargo and James J. Hill
{lay at the state fair. Grand Forks was
a royal host and Fargo vied with her
in doing-honor to the-Great Northern's
president.
An immense audience neard Mr. Hill
speak in the afternoon at.the state fair
grounds and applauded his address. The
remainder of th* day he was the especial
guest of the North Dakota (01d
who. in resolutions,
Settlers,
fc expresped their
opinion of the large part Mr. Hill is
taking in the development of North
Dakota. Mr. Hill, in-his address,.said
in part:
Mr. Hill's Address.
"What I hopeand my hopes for the
future are based on what has occurred
in the pastwhat I hope for is that you
will go onward and upward in your march
of lmpro\ement, taking: advantage of all
the opportunities that you have, and you
have many. You have opportunities here
In North Dakota far beyond those of
other parts of the country. You are do
ing well, but you can do better, and I
want the time to come when you will
do better.
I never object to our friends criticizing
liow -we run th.e railroads You have been
partial to me in North Dakota. I know
It, I feel it. I hope I will deserve it.
But at the same time, while I am glad
to have you criticize the manner in which
I tun the railroad, I want the privilege
of talking back to you a little on how you
cultivate the farm.
In the first place, pay more attention
to drainage. Keep the boys on the farm.
Encourage your state agricultural college.
Learn to do better farming, less exten
sive farming.
A friend of mine in Connecticut, who
has given the greatest care to the growth
and development of corn in a short sea
son, has succeeded to the extent that he
gets his corn to ripen in nine weeks
sixty-three days. I secured some of the
seed and I planted ten acres. My corn is
ripe, thoroly glazed and past any danger
of frost. Every bushel of that corn is
at the disposal of anybody for seed who
wants to secure an early crop in North
Dakota.
My friend in Connecticut harvested
fifty-eight bushels last year. That is
nearly 60 per cent more than the average
of the state of Iowa.
Canal and New Markets.
Now, suppose that you doubled the
i yield. What would you do with it? You
{must find a new market. There are new
markets to be had. Can you find them
{in South America, where we are spend
ing hundreds of millions of dollars to
build a. canal to brine that trade to us?
And we haven't any ships to carry it
We are going to build it for somebody
'else's ships, and hope that we will have
ships some day. Now, I haven't a word
against the canal, because the people
{along the gulf states have had a hard
time and they haven't many appropria
tions, and they thinjte it will do them
good.. But let us gOi* back and take a

I body told me fifteen years^ ago that grain
would go from the Red River valley to

I else though* I was.
Russia and Japan.
Russia and Japan have made peace. I
am glad they have agreed, but I want toheight
say this The agricultural people of the
United States And in Russia their gTeaut
est competitor JVussla raises -what
[raise they export what we export. We

export, first, wheat, oil and cotton. But
in the trans-Caspian country they are
opening up, thru irrigation, great areas
of country where they can raise cotton
in competition with us, and they will
I O the other hand, Japan, a little
island, densely populated, cannot begin
raise enough to feed her own people
Now the Japanese, whether like them
or whether don't, are going to
customers.
I want to call your attention to the
^act that it has been said that railroad
ates in the United States have not de
clined in twenty-five years. I took the
record of our own road for twenty-five
'i years. The record shows, from the of
ficlal report of the railroad and warehouse
commission, that in twenty-five years our
reduction has gone from 52.88 a ton, 100
miles, to 79 cents, and the reduction in
dollars and cents amounts to $676,000,000
Now, $676,000,000 is an average, for the
i time, of $27,000,000 a year. Last year,
the year closing June 30 last, if we had
the tate of twenty^five years ago it would
have paid S $87,000,000 more than
collected.
Government and Bates.
Many people are agitating the question
of government reduction of rates. Do you
i suppose that any government reduction of
i rates would ever approach a tenth part
I of the reduction that you have had in
twenty-five years? Let say that it
i could not, because the government of the
3 United States must conducted under
the provisions of the constitution of the
United States, and the interstate com
merce clause provides that there shall
discrimination between one community
or one district, or one state and another.
That drives a government rate abso
lutely a distance tariff, a proportionate
distance tariff, and you in North Dakota.
I 1,500 miles from the Atlantic and 1,600
miles from the Pacific, and 1,600 miles
1 from the Gulf of Mexico, would have to
back, because a distance tariff would
double your present rate, or any rate that
could made.
Don't misled Before a thing of that
Importance is decided, investigate it, and
see whether I have told you what is incor-
i rect.

I country that is the lowest in the world

Professor E. J. Babcock at the old
settlers' luncheon, presented to Mr.
Hill, on behalf of the college of mines
of the university, a handsome water set
of six pieces, handmade and handsomely
decorated, made of clay from the west
ern part of the state. Professor Bab
cock said it was a testimonial of Mr.
Hill's practical interest in the school.
Resolutions by Old- Settlers.
Eesolutions complimentary to Mr.
Hill were adopted by the old settlers
by a rising vote, and were part as
follows:
Whereas, while having only one road,
Mr. HIU always gave us a living freight
rate, and as our country developed has
steadily decreased the tariff, and our
freight rates are today less than one-half
what they were when he commenced, and
within a few days he has made another
reduction that will save the farmers of
North Dakota about one and three-quar
ter millions of dollars annually, enough to
run our state government for three years
Whereas, Mi*. Hill has always had an
eye for the improvement of our stock
and has purchased and presented to the
citizens choice cattle imported from Eu
rope
Whereas, Mr. Hill has done more to
advertise and develop our state than any
one man in the United States, and has
been the means of bringing thousands
to make their permanent homes in the
state
Therefore, be it resolved, that we ex
tend to Mr Hill our hearty congratula
tions on his' success and crown him king
of transportation.

ECLIPSE'S SHADOW
RESTED O N SPAIN
What Oamille FJannnarion Says
of the Sun'g Maximum
Activity.
New York Sun Special Service.
Almazin, Spain, Aug. 31.^Astron-
omers gathered here from all parts of
the world to observe the total eclipse
of the sun and were favored with a
cloudless sky.
Camille Flammarion, the great French
astronomer, was assisted by his wife.
He woiked all night preparation.
Xr John Miller, Professor William
Boggshall and assistants from the In
diana university, also worked-all night.
As totality approached, the scene was
a weird one. Children cried, women
screamed, and some of them became
hysterical men shouted and sang to
keep up their courage. A cold wave
swept ovei \he land. The cold was so
pronounced that it caused the coatless
peasants to shiver. M. Flammarion said
after the eclipse:
"The design of the1
"corona was not
so beautiful as that of the eclipse of
1900, but the contrast was greater.
"In the eclipse of 1900 the sky was
black. Today it was gray. I found
the corona was decidedly circular, typi
fying maximum solar activity.
"In 1900 the corona was oblong,
showing minimum activity. Today I
saw flames protruding to nearly a
of 50,000 kilometers. They were
flames of blazing hydrogen gas The
phenomenon was verv beautiful, reel
flames rendering the corona greater by
contrast.''
Other Reports Received.
London, Aug. 31.A telegram from
Sir Norman Lockyer, chief of the
eclipse party at Palma, island of Ma
jorica, savs:
"The results were indifferent owing
to unfavorable weather.'^
Professor Hugh Calendar of the
Royal Cbllege of Science, London, re
ports from Castellon de la Plana, near
Valencia, Spain, that the first and last
contacts were observed in a clear sky
and that good records of the radiation
and temperature were obtained.

CUTTING THE WOOD
An Interesting Day with the President
at Oyster Bay.
Oyster Bay, Aug. 31."Whistle
softly we are getting into thinner
timber, but we are not yet out of the
woods.''
This homely admonition represents
accurately President Roosevelt's view
of the situation 'at Portsmouth. Peace
is in sight, but yet is not ftn accom
plished fact. ,_
Secretary Loeb filled a handbag with
telegraphic congratulations from dis
tinguished men from every pfart of the
civilized world and started thru the
muddy streets to Sagamore Hill. The
man upon whom the eyes* the world
are centered was not in his library.
Faintly from the depths of the deep
woods come the sound of a woodman's
ax. The secretary set out thru the
giant trees and came upon the presi
dent, with his coat and hat thrown
aside, busily engaged in cutting up a
big tree into firewood.
Among the scores of messages were
congratulations fiom General Booth of
the Salvation Army, Senators Piatt of

"Beg your excellency to aecept my
hearty congiatulations on the success
ful issue of your able and persistent
efforts on behalf of peace. The whole

The one from Andrew Carnegie was

"The foreign press," he said, "is
mistaken in supposing that there is a
revolution in Russia. It is true that
in Poland, the Baltic provinces and
elsewhere there have been disorders,
but there is no revolution."

offered ground for apprehension.

Passing to the subject of the na

RHEUMATISM IS
VER PREVALENT
I am surprised at the amount of
rheumatism in Minneapolis," said Mr.
Cooper, during a few moments' talk
with a reporter Wednesday night. Sel
dom have I visited a city where there
was more of this disease."
As a rule, stomach trouble is the dis
order that seems to have most people
in its grip, and rhemuatism is not so
prevalent.
In Minneapolis, however, about one
half of the people who come and thank
me for what my remedies have done for
them, say that their trouble was rheu
matism.
Only one other city that I have vis
ited can compare with Minneapolis in
this respect, and that city is Buffalo.
I can understand why Buffalo people
should be subject to rheumatism, as
it is a lake city the climate in winter
is damp and disagreeable and sufferers
from rheumatism are more or less af
fected by climatic conditions.
But why should Minneapolis have so
much of it? I have never seen a more
delightful climate, so much sunshine,
and such clear air. It may be that the
very wet spring that was universal this
year may have brought a epidemic
of the disease winch is only superficial
and, therefore, temporary.
This sort of rheumatism is not so
hard to get rid of it is the genuine old
fashioned rheumatism caused by uric
acid in the blood that really hangs on
for years and does not seem to let go
winter or summer.
The New Discovery is successful with
this kind of rheumatism only in one
way. It gets the -stomach in shape.
Then the blood tnrows off 'the acid,
and Mr. Rheumatism gives up.
As I have said before, the stomach
is the main problem. I am successful
simply because I have a medicine that
builds up the stomach.
I shall remain here until Saturday of"
next week.
Among the people who called at Voe
geli's on Wednesday to thank Mr.
Cooper and who had been troubled
with rheumatism, was Mr. W. H. Mc
Clurg, living a 2601 Newton avenue N
He said:
I have had stomach trouble and
rheumatism for some time. I heard of
a man who had taken some of the Coop
er remedies for rheumatism and had
been cured in about a week.
I did not believe there was a med
icine on earth could do this for me, but
I decided to at least try it.
"I have taken two bottles of the
'New Discovery' medicine, and it has
done for me what it did for the other
man. My .rheumatism has gone and I
have not a sign of it. I feel so much
better that I seem to have been made
over.
I have gained flesh noticeably and
my upoetite is what it has not been for
years.''

MARVELOUS DISCOVERY FOB
THE CURE OF ALL FORMS
OF CONSTIPATION NOT
A HABIT BUT A CURE
YOU DECREASE THE
DOSE UNTIL CURED.
After many years of study and prac
tice a physician specialist has discov
ered the cure for constipation. It is
called Chase's Constipation Tablet.
I do not mean," said the physician
to several of his colleagues announcing
his success, I do not mean iust an
other pill that breeds the pill habit.
My remedy is a cure. By jjently forcing
all the digestive organs to perform their
functions it restores them all to health
and strength.
"THE MORE, THE LESS."
"Tho more you take the less you need
until you need nonefor you are cured.
My effort all along was to avoid the evil
of the ordinary remedy which pampers
organs already weak and so makes the
STature
atient a slave to the pill. Semember
expects every organ to do its
duty."
Physicians have long recognized the
fact that constipation is at the bottom
of nearly every disease. It saps all
energy, and makes life a burden it
opens jhe doors to all evil germs and
makes the body too weak to resist
them.
"THE VELVET WORKER."
This new discovery is small tablets^
easily, taken, and they are packed in
watcVshajped bottles which fit the vest
Socket.
The tablet is mild, all vegeta
le? never gripeB or injuries the most
delicate organs. But it does the work!
So n%turally and soothingly they stimu
late and regulate and strengthen that
they have been nicknamed "The Little
Velvet Workers."
