TALKING OF TROLLEYS
CITIZENS OF EXCELSIOR NOT
SURE ABOUT LETTING ELEC-
TRIC LINE PROMOTERS TAKE
Citizens of Excelsior have split into
factions over the advent of the street
railway company. The line will be
opened about Oct. 1. The company
has intimated that it will use a hew
route next season in entering the vil
lage. The present route Trill he used
during the winter, and while the new
route is in process of construction. The
company will build two bridges and
make a long fill at a cost of about $100,-
The new line will pass south of the
Excelsior transmission house, cross Di
vision street on a bridge, and then
make a straight run for the lake front,
also crossing Second street at an eleva
tion. The line will then pass along the
lake front to Main street, up Mam to
Second, where the plans show thai a
will be constructed.
While the citizens of Excelsior favor
the new bridges they do not like th^
idea of giving up such a strip of the
lake frontage to the company, and busi
ness men are somewhat incensed over
the prospect of having a constructed
on' the main business street.
This line will give the company an
excellent opportunity of carrying out
its plans for the building of a pavilion
at Excelsior. It will also give room
to build docks, wharves, etc., for
steamers to be run from Excelsior to
different lake points, and to its amuse
ment park on Big Island.
STRIKE IS BROKEN
Western Union Messengers Who Struck
Are Taken Back.
The strike of the Western Union mes
senger boys is broken. Not to be out
done by the railroads and the telegraph
opeiators, both sides claim a victory.
Thirty of the fifty boys are back at
work and the positions of ten of the
remaining twenty are still open to them.
Ten boys will be dropped from the
N. D. T. payroll.
Manager H. F. Hughart has re-en
gaged the boys as individuals, calling
them into the office one at a time and
making terms with them. Some who
have records of long and faithful serv
ice have received a raise, while others
were taken back at their original pay.
Mr. Hughart says he has taken ad
vantage of the strike to weed out cer
tain undesirable boys.
The trial of Michael Hurley of the
office staff, who got into a fight with
a bunch of strikers who thought he
was carrying messages, was today post

of a witness. Manager Hughart says

CROP YEAR ENDS TODAY
MINNEAPOLIS WILL EECEIPTS
YEAR SHOULD BREAK RECORDS.
Today the crop year of the north
west ends. Annual figures for north
west commerce run from Jan. 1 to Jan.
1, but the movement of crops is fig
ured from Aug. 31. Several days must
elapse before the secretary's office of
the Chamber of Commerce can give out
an exact statement covering every
thing, but already it is clear that
the matter of wheat receipts Minne
apolis will run well ahead of the year
preceding. To this morning the figures
total 88,457,540 bushels, compared with
85,139,130 for the full period last sea
sona gain of 3,318,410, and with the
two days yet to be figured in, the ex
cess should go to 3,650,000.
G. D. Rogers, secretary of the cham
ber, says the outlook is for a run of
wheat into Minneapolis in the com
ing season that will put all previous
records to the rear, and that in the
matter of receipts of grain of all kinds.
Minneapolis promises to run ahead of
the former figures, which, for wheat,
corn, oats, barley, rye and flax, reached
the big total of 134,000,000 bushels.
In the matter of wheat much will
depend, Colonel Rogers says, upon the
ability of the Minneapolis mills to do
an export trade in flour. Given a flour
business with Europe of normal size,
the consumption of wheat in Minneap
olis will Increase greatly and shipments
this way will be large and steady.

Tho Northwestern Miller Takese Issue
With Jones on the Crop.
H. V. Jones made some remraks with
regard to the Northwestern Miller's
crop estimates in. his recent annual re
port on the crops, which provoke be
tween three and four columns of reply
from the current Northwestern Miller,
in which tho Miller reviews, analyzes
and, to its own Satisfaction, at least,
disposes of Mr Jones estimates. Mr.
Jones estimated 16^,000.000 bushels of
spring wheat, and added 8,000,000 of
macaroni, making 174,000,000 altogeth
er. Of this estimate the Miller says in
Frankly, the Northwestern Miller con
siders the estimate of Mr. Jones, 186 mil
lion bushels, absurdly wrong. It believes
him further away from facts this year
than he was last and that he has not-the
faintest conception of the acreage or yield
of the northwestern wheat section. His
estimate can be accounted for only on the
supposition that, being in absolute error,
he has determined to be at'least consist
ent and to go dqwn gallantly with hjs flag
nailed to the mast. It is possible to re*
spect and even admire the courage of such
a. position. Taut it. Is out of the question to
give it serious consideration as anything
more than the expression of a forlorn
hope a desperate struggle in the last
ditch of consistent crop destruction.
In the humble opinion fthe Northw^st
penny, Mr. Jones is not less than 40 mil
Miller, which may not be worth a
Hon bushels behind the actual condition
of the spring wheat crop. This journal
has made no canvass of the exact returns
from the fields for this year. It has not
thought it worth while to do as It did In
1904, make a detailed report on each state,
for it has no ambition to wear the thorny
and unsatisfactory crown of a crop expert.
With the superficial knowledge it has of
the crop and without going into particu
lars, it has no hesitation whatever in say
ing that it believes the spring wheat crop
this year will be not less than 200,000,000
bushels, and is quite willing to go on rec
ord to this effect. In order to give Mr.
Jones and those who still believe in his in
fallibility the benefit of every advantage,
it will go further and say that its estimate
does not include a bushel of macaroni
FOR A HEARTY MEAL

engineer who has had his work of mak
ing a topographical surve-y of north

Crookston, had a long conference with
oGvernor J. A. Johnson this noon.

OE GREAT YAiUE
TTP-BIVER RESERVOIRS VITALLY
IMPORTANT TO CITY.
Committee of Sixteen Prepares its Case jg
to Present to Government Engineers
at the Conference'on Sept. 12Com-
merce and Manufacturing Are In
The committee of sixteen which will
present the contention of Minneapolis
regarding the future of the upper Mis
sissippi river reservoirs met at the Com
mercial club at noon today to prepare
briefs to be presented to' the govern
ment engineers who have been on a
tour of inspection. A conference of the
committee and the engineers will take
place Sept. 12 and Minneapolis will
put up a strong case in favor of re
taining and operating the reservoirs.
William de la Barre, engineer of the
St. Anthony Falls Waterpower com
pany, presented strong arguments. The
reservoirs are of inestimable value to
the city in maintaining an even head
of water for manufacturers using water
power. Without them the heavy spring
floods would destroy a vast amount of
property. This would be followed in
the dry season by a stage of water
too low to be of value. With the res
ervoirs floods can be reduced in a great
measure, and the water so stored al
lowed to run out later on to raise the
level of the river.
The government is completing an
elaborate system of locks and dams be
tween Minneapolis and St. Paul, which
will make Minneapolis the head of
river navigation. With the reservoirs
abandoned these expensive improve
ments "would be useless during a large
part of the year, and boats could reach
the city only when the river was. high
on account of spring floods or heavy
rains. Navigation will give manufac
turers an' opportunity to ship cheap
freight at a low rate to the south. It
will also give manufacturers a "big
stick" to wield over the railroads when
freight rates are exorbitant or discrimi
nate against the city.
