Logging Operations on St. Croix Crow
Less Every Year.
STILLWATER. MINN.Stillwater loggers are
stul engaged In sending men and teams to their
logging camps on the St. Croix and its tribu
taries and elsewhere In the northern part of the
state, but little active work has been done.
There Is from five to ten inches of snow in the
woods, but there is no frost in the ground and
very little work oan be done until cold weather
It is estimated that the log cut on streams
tributary to the St, Croix the coming winter,
will amount to 90,000,600 or 95.000.000 feet, a
large reduction from past year, and the reduc
tion will grow more pronounced each year from
now on. The timber is fast disappearing and
only a few loggers have any large tracts left
standing. The David Tozer company and Musser,
gauntry & Co. will probably log five or six
more winters, but after that, the day of logging
on the St. Croix will be over.
Six sawmills on the St. Croix will probably be
all that are operated next season. Many logs
are to be railroaded to Stillwater In the winter
end spring, and the aggregate amount of logs
that will reach here next season by rail and
water will be In excess of 100,000,000 feet Few
of them will be shipped to down-river points as
all "will probably be sawed here.

GALLS MEETING OF

IOWA ASSOCIATION TO HOLD SES-
SION AT DES MOINES./
New Scale Made by Commission Mer
chants May Result in Shippers Estab

Stock CentersExecutive Committee
Will Prepare Plan for Annual Meet
ing of Organization.
Special to The Journal.
Webster City, Iowa, Deo. 11A meeting
the executive committee of the Iowa Corn
Meat Producers' association will bo held
Des Moines on Wednesday to devise means of
protecting the interests of the livestock men of
the state in relation to the proposed advance
in fees by the commission houses at the ship
ping centers on Jan. 1. The meeting will be
attended by hundreds of members of the asso
ciation from all over Iowa. The object is to
effect temporary relief until the matter oan be
taken up at the annual meeting of the asso
ciation, which will be held in February. It is
estimated that the proposed advance will cost
the Iowa livestock men at least $800,000 a year.
The progiam for the coming annual meeting,
and also ways and means of
laws, will also be discussed.
The proposed advance In the commission rates
for selling livestock has caused a great stir
among the shippers thruout the country. It
comes as one of the series of encroachments on
the shippers by the trust of livestock ex
changes, and the shippers declare that this, in
addition to the gradual tightening of the wires
of the meat trust about them. Is more than
they can stand.
Last year the commission merchants, by
agreement, abolished the traveling representa
tives, eliminated free telegrams to shippers
concerning the trend of the stock markets. Re
cently they notified the shippers that a new
scale of rates would go Into effect on Jan. 1.
This new scale, In comparison with the old, is
New Scale for Jan. 1.
Bogs, old scale, 16 cents per head or 88 per
car: new scale, $8 per car.
Cattle, old scale, 80 cents per/ head with a
maximum of $12 per car: new Scale, not less
than $10 or more than $12 per car.
Sheep, old scale, 15 cents per head of $6
per car new scale, $8 per car, single deck.
Calves, old scale, 28 cents per head or $12
per car, single deck new scale, 29 cents per
head With a minimum of $J.O per car and maxi
mum of $12 per car, with double decks at $18.
Mixed or butcher stock, old scale, up to 812
per car new scale, $15 and up for single decks
and $15 to $18 for double decks.
It is more than likely that the Iowa live
stock shippers will join with the Texas Cattle
Growers' association and the American Stock
Growers' association in establishing Independent
shipping houses to handle their stock. The ex
pense of Btarting commission houses at Chicago,
Kansas City, St. Joseph and Omaha, it is be
lieved, will be comparatively small, and their
success would be assured by the members of
the three associations making all their ship
ments to them.

In the state, municipal government by commis

so far become Interested, and in all these places
the plan is meeting with approval.
The matter is still under discussion. The
idea is to put the management of municipal
affairs in the hands of a board of three com
missioners, instead of a city council. These
commissioners would* be paid liberal salaries,
such as would attract competent men and would
enable those elected to devote all their time
to the city's affairs. In this way. It la be

than from the large number of men giving to
the city's business only such time as can be
spared from their own affairs.

stockholders at their annual meeting in a few

fair organizations in an effort to secure Its
state aid, is the principal reason for the action
taken by the directors. The attitude of the
common council in pressing the association to

a bearing in the decision. The present directors
threaten to resign if the stockholders decide to

Commissioner Leupp Says Solu-
A?*****. Is in Sf||0
ing of Youth.
By W. W. Jerrnane
Washington, Dec. 11.Francis E.
Leupp. commissioner of Indian affairs,
deals in no uncertain manner with the
so-called "Indian question" in his an
nual report, which was made public to
day. He raps the theorists over the
knuckles in great style, and tells how,
iu his judgment, the Indians should be
treated by the whites.'
The commonest mistake made by his
white well-wishers in dealirifr with the
Indian is the assumption that he is sim
ply a white man with a red skin," is
the way Mr. JLeupp opens up his subject.
The next commonest is the assumption
that because he is a non-Oaucasian he
is to be classed indiscriminately with
other non-Caucasians, like the negro,
for instance. The truth is that the In
dian has as distinct an individuality
as any type of man who ever lived, and
he will never be judged right until we
learn to measure him by his own stand
ards, as we whites would wish to* be
measured if some more powerful race
were to usurp dominion over us."
Deterioration of Red Men.
With the situation presented of hav
ing the Indians in subjection, and hav
ing been pauperized and made indolent
by perpetual supplies from the treasury,
Mr. Leupp says it is a wonder they have
not been wholly ruined. But tho not
ruined, he says, they have suffered
serious deterioration, and the chief
problem now before us is to prevent its
going any further. To that end he says
we must reckon with several facts.
First, nothing can be done with the
Indian who has passed middle life. He
is likely to remain an Indian of the old
school to the last. With the younger
adults we may hope to do something
here and there, where we find one who
is not# too conservative but our main
hope lies with the youthful generation,
who are still measurably plastic.
Win Over the Children.
'The task We must set ourselves is to
win over-the Indian children by sympa
thetic interest and unobtrusive- guid-
ance," the commissioner says. "It is
a great mistake to start the little ones
on the path to civilization by snapping
all the ties of affection between them
and their parents, and teaching them
to despise the aged and non-progressive
members of their families. The sensi
ble as well as the humane plan is to
nourish their love of father and mother
and home. Again, in dealing with
these boys and girls it is of the utmost
importance not only that we start them
right, but that our efforts be directed
to educating rather than merely in
structing them. The foundation of
everything must be the development of
character. Learning is a secondary
"Of the 80,000 or 40,000 Indian
children of school ace in the United
States, probably at least three-fourths
will settle down in that part of the
west which we still style the frontier.
For Manual Training.
"Now, if anybody can show me what
advantage will come to these children,
most of whom will draw a living from
the soil, from being able, to reel off
the mountains in Asia or extracting the
cube root of 123,466,789, I shall be
deeply grateful. To my notion, the
Indian boy is better equipped for his
life struggle,on a frontier ranch when
he oan read the simple English of the
local newspaper. Waiwrite a short let
ter which, M' intelligible tho maybe
ill-spelled, and knows enough of fig
ures to discover whether the store
keeper is cheating him. Beyond these
scholastic acquirements his time could
be put to its best use by learning how
to repair a broken harness, how to
straighten a sprung tire on his wagon
wheel, how to fasten a loose horseshoe
without breaking the hoof, and how to
do the .hundred bits of handy tinkering
which are so necessary to the farmer
who lives thirty miles from the town.
The girl who has learned only the rudi
ments of reading, writing and cipher
ing, but knows also how to 'make and
mend her clothing, to wash and iron
and to cook her husband's dinner, will
be worth vastly more as mistress of a
log cabin than one who has given
years of study to the ornamental
Sever Tribal Ties.
"Moreover, as fast as an Indian of
either mixed or full blood is capable.of
taking care of himself, it is our duty to
set him upon his feet and sever for
ever the ties which bind him either to
his tribe, in the communal sense, or to
the government. This principle must
become operative both as to land and
money. We must end the un-American
absurdity of keeping one class of our
people in the condition of so many un
divided portions of a common lump.
Each Indian must be recognized as an
individual, and so treated, just as each
whit man is. At first, of course, the
overnment must keep its protecting
on every Indian's property after
it has been assigned to him by book
and deed then, as one or another shows
himself capable of passing out from
under this tutelage he should be set
fully free and given 'the white man's
chance,' with the white man's obliga
tions to balance it.
Factor in Communities.
Finally, we must strive in every
way possible to make the Indian an
active factor in the upbuilding of the
community in which he is going to live.
To this end I would, for instance, teach
him to transact all his financial business
that he can in his nearest market town,
instead of looking to the United States

"The process of general readjust
ment must be gradual, but it should
be carried forward as fast as it can be
with presumptive security for the In
dian's little possessions, and I should
not let its educational value be ob
scured for a moment. The leading
strings which have tied the Indian to
the treasury ever since he began to own
anything of value has been a curse to
him. They have kept him an economic

If we can watch our

Mr. Leupp then goest on to elaborate
the points discussed in brief in the
foregoing, stating nthat he would not
neglect to develop talent among young
Indians wherever it is found, but that
the education of the young should be
based on the principles enunciated.
Indian Reform School.
Mr. Leupp makes other suggestions
for the government of Indians in an
equally original style, and there is
nothing cut and dried in any of the
pages of his report. He urges that a
reform school be provided in which in
corrigibles among young Indians may
be confined. There are always a few
such in each band of Indian children
in the schools, just as there are in
communities of whites, and some insti
tutions, he says, should be established
for keeping them away from their fel
It is also urged that a sanatorium be
provided for Indian*, where tubercu
lous patients may be cared for. This
should be established in the southwest.
An increase in the salaries of Indian po
licemen is recommended, as a new sys
tem of weekly payments for Indian ir
regular employees. It is suggested
that the places where bids for Indian
supplies are opefcied should be reduced
from five to twoone"in the eastern or
central part of the country, and the
other in the extreme west.
The commissioner discusses the ques
tion of the sale of liquor to Indians at
length, along the line of the interviews
published in The Jour to al at the
time of the decision in the Ball Club,

no liquor could be sold on "Indian

FAMOUS EXPLORER TO
SPEAK IN MINNEAPOLIS
By far the most distinguished visitor
from Sweden who ever toured the
United States will be Professor Otto
Nordenskjold, the famous Antarctic ex
plorer, who comes in January to lec
ture in some of the leading cities. The
lecture here will be given Tuesday,
Jan. 23, under the auspices of the Min
nesota college. Its board of directors
has in hand all the arrangements for
the lecture 'and the entertainment of
the scientist and explorer.
It is almost two years since Dr. Nor
denskjold returned with his expedition
from the regions of the south pole.
He accepted first the urgent invitations
from the geographical societies of Lon
don, Paris, Berlin, Brussels and other
European centers. Then Dr. Nordensk
jold had to arrange the voluminous sci
entific results of the expedition and to
write a. book for the general public on
the perilous trip. On top of all. Dr.
Nordenskjold was installed as profes
sor of geographical science in a chair
established for him at the University
of Gothenburg, the institution recently
endowed with a chair in English by
Andrew Carnegie. Dr. Nordenskiold's
coming to this country is naturally
looked upon as an event of the great
Most old people are great sufferers In Winter. They W WINTER
ate seldom free froni pains or ailments of some description, because they arc
not as able to withstand the severity of the climate, with its damp, changing
weather, as are their younger, more vigorous companions. Cold weather
starts the old aches and pains they suffer with chiily sensations, cold
extremities, poor appetite and digestion, nervousness, sleeplessness and
other afflictions peculiar to old age. With advancing years the strength and
vitality of the system begin to decline. The heart action is weak and irregn-
Jatf the blood becomes thin and sluggish in its circulation, and often some
old blood taint that has lain dormant in the system for years begins to man-
ifest itself. A wart or pimple becomes a troublesome sore or ulcer, skin dis-
eases break out, or the slight rheumatic pains felt in younger days now cause
sleepless nights and hours of agony. There is no reason why old age should
not be healthy and free from disease if the blood is kept pure and the system
strong, and this can be done with S. S. S. It is a medicine that is especially
adapted to old people, because it is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks,
selected for their purifying,T healing *nd building-up properties, and is very
mild and gentle in its action. S. S. S. warms
and reinvigorates the sluggish blood so that it
moves with more rapidity, and clears it of all
impurities and poisons.. As this rich, healthy
