tition of Minnesota Official.
IMPORTANT POINT INVOLVED
Question of Respective Jurisdiction of
State and Federal Courts in Rail
road Rate Litigation a Feature of
Washington, Oct. t.The supreme
court of the United States has grant
ed the petition of Edward T. Young
attorney general of Minnesota, for a
writ bringing the contempt proceed
ings against Mr. Young in connection
with the enforcement of the railroad
rate law of that state to that court for
review and enlarged the scope of the
order so as to permit of his admission
to ball. He is now under sentence by
Judge Lochren of the federal court on
the oharge of instituting a proceeding
In the Minnesota state courts in the
face of a prohibition by the federal
court. The action of the supreme
court will bring the entire subject be
fore that court The important ques
tion of the respective jurisdictions of
the state and federal courts in cases
in which state railroad legislation is
involved, which has arisen in many
states, notably in North Carolina, will
necessarily be considered in this suit
and it may prove to be a test case
along new lines.
Government officials, including the
members of the interstate commerce
commission, regard the case as the
first real clash between the state and
federal authority on the transportation
Question that has occurred in theDr.
United States supreme court.

ment of commerce and labor, who will

ords. It prohibits the issuance of

ment of prisons of the ministry of the

sible official connected with the Rus

MORE THAN LAST YEAR.
Total Value of Crops as Estimated by
Washington, Oct. !.Secretary oi
Agriculture Wilson says that the
farmers will get more money for their
crops this year than they got for
those of last year. The total value
of all farm products in 1906 was $6,
7C4.000.000. This enormous sum not
only will mean that there will be no
hard times for the country, but that
the prosperity which has blessed it
for a dozen years will continue.
Secretary Wilson is unable to see
any danger in the financial situation,
believing it is entirely confined to the
speculative element in New York and
he is confident that the next few
weeks will show that the farm and not
Wall street is the real barometer of
our financial welfare
Secretary Wilson's confidence that
the total wealth produced this year
from farm products will be greater
than that of last yeai is based partly
upon the fact that there is a scarcity
of wheat and other ciops abroad and
this has contributed to the increase of
prices Crops at home will not be as
large probably as those of 1906, except
cotton. As Secretary Wilson said,
everybody knows the price of meat
has gone up, while the output of the
packinghouse products has increased

Ten Per Cent -Cut In Meat Prices.
Omaha, Oct. \Omaha packing
houses have reduced the price of all
kinds of meat 10 per cent and expect
a still further reduction. Edward A
Cudahy of the Cudahy Packing com
pany expressed the belief that the
prices of all commodities would be
materially reduced and that the pres
ent financial flurry would result in a
general reduction in values, although
he does not consider conditions seri

FOUND TRUE DEMOCRACY.
Bishop of London Tells of His Trip to
London, Oct. .The bishop of
London, in his sermon Sunday at the
Church of the Holy Trinity, said there
were several lessons he had brought
back from America.
"There is far greater generosity,
love and trust between different bod
ies of Christians and between schools
of thought in the same church in
America than here in England," said
"It was like going into another at
mosphere to pass from the wrangles
of Great Britain into an atmosphere
where they are unknown.
"It was a great lesson to be present
at the general convention of the
churches in the United States highly
Instructive to see a millionaire from
Wall street sitting side by side with
a workingman, both representing New
York. It was true democracy.

out there. Talk of lively services.
Talk of mechanical ritual. Why, I
have heard the rafters shake with
praise and there was no sneaking

The custom of having warships sail
under sealed orders arose from the de
sire of maritime powers to prevent the
plans from becoming known to the
enemy. In the American navy such
orders comq from the president and
are delivered to a commander of a ship
or squadron by a confidential messen
ger who knows nothing of their con
tents. Sometimes they are in cipher,
but they are always sealed with the
official seal of the navy department
and the package cannot be opened un
til the time marked on it, which la
usually several hours after the hour
of leaving port. By this precaution
the newspapers are prevented from
disclosing prematurely the movements
which may be of the greatest impor
tance, and the spies of the enemy are
rendered useless so far as their abil
ity to discover the secret of sucb
movements is concerned. Sailing un
der sealed orders is now the common
naval practice in time of war. These
instructions are found in the packet
of sealed orders, which is opened
when well out at sea.
A Runaway River.
The problem and the peril of the Colo
rado river are not difficult to under
stand A great river running slowly
on a ridge of its own creating, run
ning in a broad and tortuous channel,
choked with islands of mud and bars
of sediment, running with a fall of
only one foot to the mile, while to the
north and west lay a vast depression
below sea level and inviting the slug
gish river to a swifter flow between
this sunken area and the uncertain
course of the river a great garden of
Eden in promise and potency, needing
only to be watered and kept, then a
canal tapping the river, a flood gather
ing at the far away sources, a breach
In the unprotected bank and the whole
volume of the river, forsaking its
ancient and outgrown bed and rushing
into that pit in the desert, sweeping
In its course through miles of fertile
farms and cutting canyons where

the situation and a hint of the peril.
