Prairie Chickens are
Nearing Extermiuation
Notwithstanding the law has given
prairie chickens all the protection it
could for three years, hunters will
find, when they take the field on Sep
tember 10th as great a scarcity of
them as before the law went Into ef
fect—perhaps more so. The past two
years have been unusually favorable
to the birds in the way of weather
during hatching season, but the birds
are mighty scarce compared to form
er years. It is diffiicult to account
for it, bnt it is a fact, nevertheless,
that once any species of game birds
ouce starts on the downward course
the law cannot aid them. It would,
perhaps if the law was strictly obey
ed, but there are always enough vio
lators of the law to take the birds
faster than they can multiply, and
when once the total number left for
propagation is small, it is the begin
ning of the end. There are many
farmers who protect the prairie chick
ens by not only letting them alone
themselves but by keeping hunters
off in season—they do not all kill
them, law or no law—and these farm
ers who like to have the beautiful
birds about their farms await with
dread the coming of the rapid fire
guns and the dogs Sept. 10 .they
dread the slaughter to follow the ex
termination of the few covies that for
the past three years have been un
molested. The writer of this gives to
no man a keener zest for prairie chic
ken hunting, but but he would like to
see the next legislature pass a law
prohibiting the killing of another
chicken in South Dakota. This year
and next will probably terminate the
sport of hunting them because of
their scarcity, and why not let it ter
minate the wickedness of exterminat
ing them?—Kimball Graphic.

International Harvester
Company Gives Reply
The Facts Set Forth Regarding the
Attack of the Unsigned and Mis
leading Townsend Report.
During the last month there have
been widely circulated certain state
ments regarding the International
Company, all of which have their ori
gin in a report made more than five
years ago by Assistant District Attor
ney Townsend, after a brief and par
tial investigation.
The International Harvester Com
pany has presented to the Stanley
Committee, at Washington, a com
plete and vigorous answer, in which
it is pointed out that the arguments
and conclusions of tho so-called
"Townsend Report" are based upon
clearly erroneous statements of well
known facts.
The "Townsend Report" claims that
a monopoly in harvesting machinery
has been created because the Interna
tional ownB the patents on all the best
types of knotters.
The truth is that there has be5h
no patent whatever on the essential
parts of any type knotter since 1896,
when the Appleby patent, expired.
Neither are there now any patents
upon any essential part of the grain
binder. The many basic patents
hatf all expired in 1896, and there
have been no substantial patented im
provements since 1891—twenty years
ago—while the life of a patent, as is
well-known, is only seventeen years,
rhat there are no snch patents is
known to every manufacturer of har
vesters, and 1b now emphasized by
the fact that other manufacturers.in
eluding the Minnesota State Prison,
have Recently closelyi infit/fted the
International's models.
The Townsend report charges that
of all the different types of harvest
ers purchased by the Internatlonal.all
except three—the "Deerlng", "Mc
Pcnnick," and "Osborne" —have been
•&sfNf Vv,
abandoned, and that repairs are not
furnished for any others. This state
ment is notoriously and absolutely un
true. Repairs for the "Minnie,"
"Buckeye" and "Keystone," altho not
manufactured for nearly ten years,
have always been and are still furn
ished by the International. Altho the
Report states that the "Champion,
Piano" and Milwaukee" binders anil
mowers have ceased to be manufac
tured, the truth is that they have
been since 1902 continuously manu
factured, and are still manufactured
by the International and are general
ly sold thruout the United States.
This is well-known' to the farmers
and dealers of the country.
The Report's charge of a "binder
twine trust" is without any founda
tion whatsoever. The International
i£ not only in constant and vigorous
competition with the Plymouth Cord
age Company and a half dozen or
more other smaller twine manufac
turers, but also with seven state pen
itentiary twine mills.
Since the International was organ
ized, binder twine prices have stead
ily fallen, and the decrease betwee
1902 and 1911 amounts to 40 per cent.
The charge that the International
has suppressed competition in har
vesters is likewise untrue. It has had
continuously, and still has, the vigor
cus competition of the Johnston, Wal
ter A. Wood, Acme, and Adriance
Platt. Companies in the binder trade,
and several other in the mower trado.
Recently two large manufacturers
have entered the trade, while the Min
nesota Prison factory compels free la
bor and private capital to compete
with prison labor and public funds
in the manufacture of harvesters
and twine.
The Townsend Report repeats the
ever-recurring falsehood that binders
are sold at a cheaper price abroad
than at home. Ttae United States
Government's investigation, in 1909,
proved that while the American far
mer pays approximately $125.00 for
a 6-foot binder, in France this same
machine costs $173.70 in Germany,
$203.00 in Sweden, $160.80 and in
Great Britain $136.16.
In spite of the fact that materials
had increased in cost more than 3')
per cent and wages more than 17
per cent the International did not
increase its price of binders until
three years ago. And then an in
crease of only 7 per cent was made.
This, however owing to some reduc
tions in material, has been largely
wiped out by an announced reductioj
of 5 per cent for 1912, altho the cost
of labor has advanced more than 26
per cent.
