Call Issued to Farmers' Organizations
to Participate in the Confer-
ence at Washington.
NO CANCELLATION OF DEBT
War Finance Corporation Approves
Advances for Agricultural and
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace,
at the request of President Harding,
has issued a call to farmers' organiza
tions and allied industries to partici
pate in a conference at "Washington
on January 23 to "suggest practical
ways of improvement for the severe
agricultural depression which exists
throughout the land. Upon the heels
of this midwest congressmen have an
nounced a program to aid the faimer
which they s?y they will attempt to
push through before the spring ad
journment. Senators and representa
tives from agricultural sections are
united for, the drive. They are jubilant
over President Harding's action in
calling a farm conference, believing it
puts congress in a position where it
is bound to pass any measure which
would help pull the American farmer
out of the rut Here are some of the
nroposals which will be taken up and
advanced without delay. Return of
power over intrastate railroad rates to
the state raihoad commissions, de
signed to bring lower freight rates
regulation of co-operative buying and
selling associations among farmers
longer terms and easier interest rates
for farmers under the farm loan act.
Senators interviewed declared that
the cancellation of the $11,000,000,000
foreign debt, as proposed by Justice
Clarke of the United States supreme
court, is absolutely out of the question.
'Neithei congress nor public opinion
this country would tolerate for a
moment any serious proposal for the
cancellation of the foreign debt," Sen
ator New of Indiana declares. "The
subject has been so thoroughly gone
into and the attitude of congress has
been made so plain on a number of oc
casions that I wonder that anyone
should seek to reopen It now." Sena
tor King of Utah says: "Justice
Clarke is entitled to entertain and to
express, if he so desires, his private
opinion regarding the foreign indebt
edness, but congress and the American
people have long since made up their
minds as to whether that indebtedness
is to be collected or not. Justice
Clarke's opinion is not likely to have
any undue weight with congress or to
influence members of congress in the
stand they have repeatedly taken that
these debts must be liquidated sooner
or later by our foreign debtors."
Imposition of a compensatory duty
on flour, compared with the duty on
wheat, in order that the American
milling industry may be on equal
terms with foreign millers, was urged
on the senate finance committee by
James Ford Bell of the Washburn
Crosby company, Minneapolis, on be
half of the millers of the country. Mr.
Bell also urged adoption of a draw
back provision in the permanent tariff
'aw that will permit the millers to
export flour equal in amount to that
of the wheat imported, with privilege
of retaining the byproducts this
country "The miller is not interested
the duty on flour except that if
there is a duty on wheat it should be
equal on flour," Mr. Bell told the com
mittee "If whent is free flour should
be free of duty. If there is a duty on
wheat the duty on ,1cur should be the
rate of duty on wheat, applied to the
numbei of bushels used in making a
barrel of flour from the wheat. To do
otherwise would give preference to
foreign manufacturers and foreign
labor at the expense of United States

ROAD PROGRAM SAVING.
Reduction in Freight Rates on High
way Building Material Will
Save State $250,000.
A. saving of approximately $250,000
on the 1922 construction program on
Minnesota highways is assured by an
order of the state railroad and ware
house commission for a straight 20
per cent reduction in freight rates on
highway building material.
Highway commissioner Babcock,
ho made the estimate, says these
inures are conservative. Trunk high

^tate Second on Federal Aid List.
Minnesota's mileage of good roads
milt or contracted for improvement
under federal aid regulations is rated
second only to that of Texas in a
oulletin issued this week by the gov
ernment bureau of public roads. The
report covers the last five years, but a
big part of Minnesota's favorable
showing was accomplished under the
Babcock plan inaugurated last May.
The total for this state was 1,713.4
miles at an average cost of $10,219.33
a mile. Roads listed, however, include
all the paved highways and others on
which costly betterments were made,
so the average will not apply to Min
nesota road costs in general.
Texas tops the list with 2,485.7 miles
of federal aid roads "built in the 5-year
period covered by the report. Iowa is
listed with 1,509.2 miles, North Dak
ota 999.5, Wisconsin 986.1, Montana
680.3 and South Dakota 676.7 miles.
The government gave $6,947,373.63
toward the total cost of $17,509,911 of
the Minnesota roads enumerated. En
gineers estimate that, tinder the Bab
cock plan, by which automobile owners
of the three large cities contribute
more than 40 per cent of the tax funds,
Minnesota farmers are paying less
than half the cost of improving and
maintaining the primary road system
in the state.
The bulletin adds that since July 1,
1916, a total of 28,315 miles of roads
have been built at a cost of $496,151,-
683.43 Cost averages are $8,115 a
mile for graded and drained high
ways, $8,250 for sand clay, $10,400 for
gravel, $50,360 for concrete and $49,-
570 for brick. Minnesota costs were
lower on the average, even during the
G. H. GOTTWERTH DIES.
One of Princeton's Prominent Busi
ness Men and an Enterprising,
Gustav H. Gottwerth died at his
home in north Princeton on Friday
morning at 9 o'clock, death being
caused by hardening of the arteries.
He had been ailing for about a year
but for the past month was confined
to his bed.
Funeral services were conducted un
der the auspices of the local Odd Fel
lows lodge, of which deceased was a
member, on Tuesday afternoon at the
Methodist church. Rev. S. Ainsworth
Lumb read the funeral service of the
church and the Odd Fellows conducted
the ritualistic ceremony of that order.
Many paid their last tribute of re
spect to their departed townsman and
the floral offerings were numerous.
Gustav H. Gottwerth was born in
Detroit, Mich., and wa?^6 years of
age. He was married in Minneapolis
in 1886 to Miss Minnie Hummel, who
Deceased was one of Princeton's en
terprising and public-spirited citi
zens. He had been a member of the
village council, conducted a meat mar
ket and was one of the leading potato
buyers of the village. He was a resi
dent of Princeton for 18 years. "Gus"
Gottwerth, as he was familiarly
known, was a man who attended
strictly to his own business and count
ed his friends by the score. He was
honest in his dealings with his fellow
man and possessed a heart imbued
with generosity. Those who knew
him will long remember him for his
many good traits of character.
Mrs. Gottwerth thanks very kindly
the Odd Fellows and friends who so
kindly assisted her during the sickness
and at the obsequies of her beloved
Potato Quotations Advance Ten Cents
Per Cwt and Shipments From
This Point Increase.
The Princeton potato market has
taken on a triffle more activity so far
as shipments are concerned, but the
movement from the growers to the
warehouses is slow, due partly to the
deterrent effects of the weather.
With the exception of Ohios and
Russets prices here have advanced
about 10 cents per cwt over last week's
quotations, showing an upward ten
dency which is usually noticeable at
this time of the year. Outside mar
kets were, however, a trifle weaker
yesterday, according to the daily pota
to report received by buyers here.
Something like 10 cars of potatoes
have been shipped from Princeton dur
ing the week, but this, while an im
provement over the past several weeks,
is a small quantity for this time of
Buyers who had closed their ware
houses have again opened up for busi

which is an encouraging indication.

PAPER FOR 1922
Board of Commissioners Awards Coun-
ty Printing to Lowest Bidder,
TIMES HAS HIGHEST BID
Financial Statement and Commission-
ers* Proceedings to Go to All
The Princeton Union was declared
the official paper of Mille Lacs coun
ty for the year 1922 by action of the
county commissioners in regular ses
sion on Tuesday afternoon.
Early in December four of the
commissioners had agreed to ask
each paper in the county to sub
mit three separate bids on the coun
ty printingone on the delinquent
tax list, one on the so-called "job
work" and a third on the finan
cial statement, the county commis
sioners' proceedings, school notices,
ditch notices, etc. A year ago the
Mille Lacs County Times submitted a
collective bid which had to be accepted
or rejected as a whole. The commis
sioners had found it difficult to handle
the bids in this form and therefore
agreed to ask each paper to submit
separate bids only. They also informed
the papers that the bids must be
made with the agreement that all the
resident taxnapers of the county would
be furnished with copies of the pro
ceedings of the regular sessions of the
county commissioners, the financial
statement and the delinquent tax list.
Furthermore they agreed to accept
the lowest hid submitted for each piece
of work. Both the Milaca Tribune
and Princeton Union complied with the
request of the commissioners and sub
mitted three separate bids. The edi
tor of the Milaca Times, however,
much preferred the collective bid and
asked to be allowed to use that form.
The county commissioners held to
their point and stated that they must
insist on him complying with their re
quest as the other papers had done.
He became quite insistent and asked
if the commissioners were attempting
to divide the county printing between
three papers or were they interested
in having it done at the lowest possi
ble rates and thus effect a saving of
a considerable sum of money for the
taxpayers of the county. He stoutly
maintained that the Times could make
lower rates on the various items of the
printing if that company received all
the work than if it received only a
portion of it. Be it said to the credit
of the commissioners that they re
mained firm in the face of the terrible
accusation of wasting the taxpapers'
money. They had made an agreement
with the other papers of the county
and they intended to hold to it. The
editor of the Times finally submitted
his collective and separate bids.
County Auditor Peltier was then in
structed to read the separate bids of
the Milaca Tribune, Mille Lacs Coun
ty Times and Princeton Union which
were as follows: The Milaca Tribune
agreed to publish the commissioners'
proceedings, the financial statement
and other legal notices at 35 cents per
folio for the first insertion and 20
cents per folio for all subsequent in
sertions the delinquent tax list at 8
cents per description and to do the
job work at 25 per cent helow the
prices of the Franklin Price List.
The Mille Lacs County Times agreed
to publish the financial statement at
45 cents per folio for the first inser
tion and 20 cents per folio for the
second and third insertions the com
missioners' proceedings at 60 cents per
folio all other notices at 40 cents per
folio for the first insertion and 20
cents per folio for subsequent inser
tions the delinquent tax list at 12
cents per description and to do the job
work at 22 per cent below the prices
of the Franklin Price List. The
Princeton Union agreed to publish the
financial statement, the commission
ers' proceedings and all other legal no
tices required to be printed by the
county at the rate of 19 cents per
folio for the first insertion and 9
cents per folio for subsequent inser
tions the delinquent tax list at 5
cents per description and to do all job
work at 26 per cent below the prices
of the Franklin Price List.
After the reading of the last sepa
rate bid, the Union's bid, the editor
of the Times withdrew his collective
bid and departed. Many of those
present were of the opinion that the
rates in his collective bid, the bid that
was to have saved the taxpayers
money, must have been higher than
than those submitted by the Union
and possibly than those of the Trib
Commissioner Newton moved that
the Union's bid be accepted. The mo
tion was seconded and carried without
a dissenting vote. Mr. Eckdall cast
no vote. A resolution was then
passed declaring the Princeton Union
to be the official paper of Mille Lacs
county for the year 1922.
Steel Coaches for Great Northern.
The Great Northern Railroad com
pany announces that it has planned to
convert all its wooden passenger
coaches into cars of steel and to do
the work in the company's shops. This
will involve, says the president of the
road, Ralph Budd, an expenditure of
a million dollars. In addition the com
pany has ordered 30 new steel coaches
at a cost of about $75,000.
"Ordinarily," President Budd says,
"the rebuilding of passenger coaches
is done in outside shops, and we could
probably have the work done for less
money elsewhere, hut it was thought
desirable under the present conditions
to keep our own men busy and spend
the money in our own communities."
Mr. Budd also announces that a large
number of the thousand clerks recent
ly laid off will be re-employed the
early part of the month.

Mercury vs. Ogilvie.
The Mercury baskcteers went up to
Ogilvie on Saturday night to engage
battle with the quint of that place
and lost by a score of 34 to 19.
On the way up the Mercurys en
countered bad luck, their car becoming
stuck in a snowbank about a mile
from Ogilvie and, consequently, when
they arrived on the floor to play they
ware benumbed with the cold. But
they do not wish to put this forth as
an excuse for their defeat, as they

accorded them by the people of Ogil
