One in Hospital
Mtlbknk, JJay 9.—AS^'Oie restiitT of
a quarrel over some stray sheep,
Emanuel Lundberg, a farmer of Grant
now In a* critical condition
at a hospital at Madison, Minn., and
•John .Hallquist, a neghbor, is facing
impossible trial either for assault with
a dangerous weapon, or on a murder
Some cattle and sheep belonging to
Lundberg strayed to the Hallquist
farm and became mixed with the Hall
quist livestock. Lundberg went after
them and the two herds were separat
es with difficulty, Hallquist finally
having to drive his cows and sheep li
to the barn in order to separate them
from Lundberg's. Lundberg then
started to drive his sheep home, but
they did not drive well, so he procured
a rope and tied them together. He
kicked the sheep severely in the pro
ces, and Hallquist remonstrated with
him. Later, Lundberg's sheep, attach
ed to the rope, became entangled in
some small trees, and Lundberg was
stooped over, trying to extricate the
animals, when Hallquist, his temper
evidently giving way, seized a piece
of board and struck him over the head.
Lundberg dropped to the ground un
conscious, and Hallquist, finding he
did not revive and evidently already
repenting his hasty attack, carried him
to his house, a distance of a quarter of
a mile, where he and Mrs. Lundberg
worked over the stricken man for five
hours without restoring him to con
sciousness. Later, a physician was
summoned and the man was taken to
the hospital, where later reports indi
cate he may recover, though his con
dition Is regarded as serious. A 12
year-old daughter of Hallquist and a
9-year-old son of Lundberg's witnessed
the affair and both tell substantially
the same story of the quarrel and the
assault that followed. Hallquist is ex
tremely worried over the matter, and
makes daily inquiries concerning the
condition of his victim.

President McCormick Makes
Reply to Charges.
Statement issued in Connection with
Government's Suit to Dis
solve International Har.
The government filed tt'^issolutlon
suit in the federal court at St. Paul
Minn., April 30, against the Interna
tional Harvester company, alleging
violation of the Sherman law and mak
ing the general charges that are cus
tomary In a bill of thiB kind, and ask.
ing for whatever reliefs are consid
ered necessary by the court. The bill
is a very long one and therefore can
not be reproduced, but it sets forth,
in effect, that the Harvester company
is a monopoly In restraint of trade,
has used oppressive methods in forc
ing its agents to handle its goods ex
clusively, etc. To these charges Pres
ident McCormick has made the fol
lowing reply:
"The International Harvester case
differs radically in itti facts from all
the so-called 'trust' cases heretofore
decided under the Sherman law. The
International Harvesfer company was
organized' in 1902 for the purpose of
securing economy in the manufacture
and sale of harvesting machinery, and
of increasing the foreign trade. It
had no water in its capitalization, and
it has earned only a reasonable return
capital,—less than 7 per cent
per annum on the average. The prices
machines are now substantially
the same as in 1902, notwithstanding
an Increase of 15 per cent in raw ma
terial prices and' 30 per cent In wages.
The company has caused a large sav
ing to American farmers in the cost
of agricultural Implements. It has in
creased the foreign trade in agricul
tural Implements four-fold in' nine
years its foreign sales in 1911 were
over $42,000,000. It has not sold cheap
er abroad than at home. Its treatmer1
of its customers. Its employes, I:
agents and its competitors has bet
in accord with the highest standard
of ethics and honorable business meth
ods. To the farmers it has given bet
ter service and better machines to
agents and dealers, a less hazardous
and fluctuating business and to its em
ployes it has given higher wageB, im
proved and sanitary working condi
tions, insurance against sickness, ao
cident and old age, and a Bhare in the
"The charges of misconduct found
in the bill have been met and dis
proved by the company in other cases
and they will again fail, because they
are, untrue. The supreme court of
Missouri, in a suit in: which those
charges were fully gone Into, said:
'On the whole, the evidence shows
that the International Harvester com
pany has not used its power to oppress
or injure the farmers who are its cus
"And again:
•"The price of harvesting machines
has not increased in proportion to the
increased cost of construction or the
increased merit of the machines, and
respondent has brought other farm im
plements into trade."
'The evidence also shows that the
machines manufactured oy the Inter
national Harvester company have been
greatly improved in quality and,the
item of repair material hae been re
duced in price and placed within closer
reach of the farmer.'
"The organizers of this company
acted tinder the advice of able Counsel,
and In the sincere belief that they
were violating no law. If under later
decisions it should be held that the
law was violated it could only be
through the creation of a power to op
press which has never been exercised.
"MOre than six years ago the com
pany asked for its investigation by the
United 8tates government, and opened
all fts boobs and records for inspec
tion, and furnished all information re
quested., No suggestion of any change
in its business methods has been made
to it by the government at any time.
Recently, a full and frank discussion
of' the. whole, situation has been had
between the representatives of the gov
ernment and tile company, in an hon
est desire upqn both'sides to avoid
litigation. Some plan fmay yet be
found which will obviate the necessity
of any protracted litigation by satis
fying the claims made under the Sher
man act
the economic advantages and benefits
••cured "by the organization of this
company., No form of reorganization,
however, was suggested by the govern-1
ment which seemtd practically: pos

to avoid embarrassment to the foreign

Titanic'* Wreck
Washington, May 8.—failure Wgive'
the exact position, a great field ot
floating ice that obstructed, ships hur
rying to her Tesoue, and the mistake
of its own captain rushing speedily
,through the ice covered sea aUl thM*
combined'to send the Titanic and her
sixteen hundred victims'to their Wa^
tej-y grave in the North Atlantic. This
was the opinion of witnesses who tes
tified before the senate commlttea .iu
vestigating the ocean tragedy.'' I
Captain James H. Moore-of' th«
steamer Mount Temple, wfrlch was'
hurried to the Titanic in response of
the wireless calls for help, told of the
great stretch of field ice which held
him off. Within his view from tW
bridge, he discerned,' he said, another
strange steamer, probably a "tramp"
and a schooner which was making her
way out of the ice. The lights of this
schooner he thought probably were
those Been by the anxious survivors of
the Titanic and which they were fran
tically trying to reach.
Denounces Titanic's Captain.
Captain Moore denounced as '*most
unwise' '-the action of the-Titanic's
comqiander in rushing 21 knots thru
the night when he bad been advised of
the proximity of the ice. -The. Mount:
Temple's commander testified that he
hatf spent 27 years on the North At
lantic and whenever there was 'ice
around, he said, he doubled his watch'
and reduced the speed and if he hap
pened to get caught in an Ice pack,
stopped the engine and drifted until
clear. •{.'
The witness also was emphatic In
the declaration that the- position sent
out by the Titanic was wrong. He
said the ship was eight miles: farther
eastward than its operators reported
This, he declared, was proved by ob
servations taken the first thing the
day following the disaster.
With what virtually was a fleet of
steamers within a radius of fifty miles
of the Titanic, the officer said this
mistake, in fixing accurately the posi
tion of the doomed ship was a fatal
one. With icebergs and floating ice
covering the northern sea, a ship even
the size of the Titanic might well be
overlooked jthrough such a variance.

John Eckstrom, a prosperous farmer
who lived four miles east of Effing
ton, was a passenger on that ill-fated
boat, and the sea claimed him as a
victim when the battered hulk of the
big vessel went down off the coast of
Newfoundland on Monday morning,
April 15.
Mr 'Eckstrom left last fall for a visit
to his old home in Sweden ^intending
on his return to bring his aged father
over to this country with him. It is
known that the two men took passage
on the Titanic, and nothing has been
heard, of them since the wreck of the:
vessel, there is scarcely a doubt but
what they were among the sixteen
