TO OUTDO NIAGARA Wonderful Canal and Power Scheme of Duluth Men. MANY LAKES TO BE UTILIZEE Canal From City Limits to Northern Part, of County—loo,ooo H. P. of Electrical Enerjfy. Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Feb. 22.—The Highland cacal and Power company has just tiled papers in condemnation for its line, cov ering lands from the city limits of Du luth to the northern part of the county. The line of the proposed canal is to run straight north from Duluth across the Cloquet river, and up to the eastern end of the opened portion of the Mesaba range, crossing the range through a series of dikes. The company's scheme is very ambi tious. It proposes to construct a system of waterways from the north central part of the county to the brow of the hill above Duluth, and to deliver at that point a sufficient volume of water to create, at consumers" meters in the city, 100,000 horsepower of electrical energy. There is a fall of 765 feet from the end of the open canal inside the city limits to the bay front, where the power house will be lo cated, and the water will be carried down by a series of steel pipes. There will be do long distance transmission of power, all users likely to want power being lo cated in Superior and Duluth, within two miles of the power house, which will be near the foot of Fifteenth avenue West. Enormous Power In Prospect. The company's canals will have a drainage area of 2,500 square miles, and figuring the minimum of the smallest flow of storm water, and deducting gener ously from that, there will be water suffi cient to give the 100,000 horse power that the company . claims. This is an enormous power, twice that now developed by the costly undertaking of the Cataract Con struction company of Niagara Falls while the entire system will cost but a trifle more than the simple tail race of the Cat aract Construction company. It is pro posed to take merely the storm flow of water from the streams tapped, which will prevent any legal difficulties with the owners, and most of the water to be taken is water that now flows to Hudson Bay. -.-. • .-y >. The Company Has Fall 1.,-mil Advice. The company will have a large reservoir system In swamps ami lakes between Du luth and the Cloquet river, and figures that it will be able to impound enough water to run its wheels for a year, should There be practically no rainfall in that pe riod. The credit for the discovery that a level watercourse can be made from the head of the hill back of Duluth. and within the city limits, stretching away to the north for fifty or sixty miles, is due to F. A. Cokefair, hydraulic and mining engineer from Xew York, who has been at work on the project in this city for more than a year. No one would imagine from the appearance of the country, or from the contours "bf the railways traversing the region, that a waterway with but one or two locks could be made between Duluth and the Vermillion range, but Mr. Coke fair has found it, and has the surveys to prove it. More Thau One Scheme. In addition to Its scheme for water pow er the company has another for' the trans portation of logs, pulpwood, ties and other floating materials from along its course, and from the streams that flow into it, to Duluth mills. There are millions of fei't of timber, millions of cords of pulp wood which are not now available, and can never be brought to this city except by railways, that wili be tapped by this canal, if built. The company is backed by eastern in terests, and it is claimed that it can raise the money for carrying out its great plans. It has secured much land for the system, and is now filing the papers for the con demnation ot large tracts along the pro posed course that will bo required for f.owage reserviors, waterway, etc. I'urolianers of Power. There are claimed to be about 30,000 horsepower of machinery in Duluth and Superior that will be glad to use this power if it can be delivered at a price to make the use attractive. This the com pany says it will do, intimates that the price will be about two-thirds of the scale charged at Niagara, and on the same sliding basis as there. The company claims that by the time it is ready to turn on the water there will be a demand for a large share of the power it is able to furnish, so low will its rates be and so great will be the increase in the manufac turing business under its wheels. Under its plan Pelton wheels will be used, working under an enormous head, and these wheels will be connected direct ly with generators, from which power will be distributed by wire, direct to con sumers' motors, to the amount of 100,000 24-hour electrical horse power.

" ' CjQ ■ -" SWEET'S LIQUOR ACT Satisfies Neither the Druggists Nor Saloonkeepers. SENATE GAVE IT A BIG MAJORITY Battle Royal Reserved lor the House —Ideal \i>i»<>iniiiit-iitM h> Hfrrcid. Special to The Journal. Pierre. S. D.. Feb. 22.—Sweet's liquor license bill, which passed the senate on Wednesday, contains many of the de mands of the liquor dealers in their cir cular to the legislature, but is not known as the association's bill. It is unsatisfac tory to the dealers in that it does not sufficiently restrict their liability for sell ing to drunkards who are not known to them. It pleases them in that it permits them to give a surety bond and prescribes severe penalties for the sale of liquor b.r druggists, who are prohibited from sell ing intoxicants to be drunk on their prem ises or upon premises adjoining. The Sioux Falls Brewing company Is dissat isfied because it fixes the license for the manufacture of beer at $400 and for beer warehouses at $600. There were only three votes against it, but it la under stood it will be fought to a finish in the house. „ Governor Herreid's appointment for the board of agriculture are ideal. John Arm strong of De Smet has been a member of the board for many years and Is now its president. He takes great interest in the annual fairs and to his untiring industry and good judgment are attributed much of the success that has been achieved. C. C. Moulton of Faulkton is mayor of that city and one of the most successful and wide-awake business men and farmers in the northern part of the state. Thomas Fullerton of Mitchell has been mayor of that city, is a prosperous citizen and is entitled to much of the credit for the triumphs scored by the corn palace expo sitions of his home city. E. C. Chilcott of Brookings is head of the agricultural department of the college and a good busi ness man as well. Before removing to Brookings he was a resident of Campbell co»inty and was considered one of its best citizens from a standpoint of public spir itedness and enterprise. The fifth mem ber will be selected from among the prom inent citizens of the southern part of the state. The governor has certainly made rare selections for this board and the state fair should prosper accordingly. The senate passed a rural school library bill on Wednesday, but by the narrow margin of one vote, and the measure has yet to run the gauntlet of a presumably hostile house. This bill is In most re spects similar to the Redding bill, which was killed a few days before. During the debate Senator Loomis condemned the library idea on the ground that the books distract the attention of pupils from their studies, that they'spread disease, that the schools are already overloaded with fads, that the pupils can make better use of the five and one-half hours of the school day than by reading or being read to from works of fiction, and he urged that "people should not permit sentiment to run away with their common sense." House bill No. 138, which is now before the governor for his approval, makes a radical departure in the collection of de linquent personal property taxes. It pro vides tha f. such delinquent taxes shall be collected by the sheriffs and that the lists shall be placed in the hands of these offi cers on July 1 of each year. The fees allowed for collection are the same as now allowed treasurers, but It is provid ed that the treasurers shall receive no commissions for moneys so collected. It is believed that the sheriffs, being about the country continually, will have greater opportunities than the treasurers enjoy to bring delinquents to time and to ap prehend would-be absconders. House bill No. 77, another measure which has passed both branches and is in the hands of the governor, provides for the election of city assessors by vote of the people. As the bill has an emergency clause attachment it is probable cities will be obliged to elect assessors the com ing spring, but this is a matter upon which the lawyers will have to pass. At torneys will also have to decide the length of term of these officers if they are elected this year, although there is no doubt that after this year they will hold office for two years, the same as mayors and aldermen. Judge Fuller dissented from the opin ion rendered this week by the supreme court relative to the validity of the re ceipt in common use in chattel mortgages, it being his opinion that the receipt should be executed following the entire completion of the instrument proper. Un der the decision the old form of chattel mortgages, with the receipt printed be fore the signatures, may be used with safety. The court held in the same con nection, however, that a mortgage on crops must specify the crop by location, and that it Is not sufficient as against a third party to mortgage all the crop grown during a certain season by a cer tain person without stating where such crops shall be raised. One of the most drastic measures intro duced during the present session aims to give city councils power to impose spe cial taxes in the form of licenses upon private corporations operating lighting plants, waterworks, street car lines, tel egraphs, telephones, gas plants, etc., and to absolutely fix and regulate the rates and tolls charged by such corporations. The measure would put corporations of the kind described under absolute control of city councils and would mark «. new departure in this state. Mayor Burnside and others of Sioux Falls have been here for some time pushing the bill, but it does not meet with general favor and seems to be doomed to defeat. House bill No. 34, which gives the gov ernor power to remove appointive state officers of all grades, will be the law of the land as soon as the executive ap proves it. The governor, it is understood, will at once make use of the power with which it invests him by removing a few state appointees of his predecessor who have outlived their usefulness from the standpoint of the new dispensation. Fusionists have talked some of "referen duming" this bill, but it is surmised their cases will be settled before that law can be brought into action. It is expected, however, that some of the appointees will resist removal by judicial proceedings.

TRADE WITH RUSSIA tlecent Order Affect* Only About $5,000,000 a Tear. Special to The Journal. Washington, Feb. 22.—Exports of manu factures from the United States to Rus sia do not amount to $30,000,000 per year, as has been asserted, nor have they ever reached one-fourth that sum. According to the figures of the United States bureau of statistics, exports of manufactures to Russia range from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000 per annum, and according to the Russian official statistics, they have averaged a little over $4,000,000 a year since 1895. The Russian statement of total imports of goods of all classes originating in the United States have averaged since 1895 less than $25,000,000 per annum, and of this sum more than three-quarters repre sents raw cotton, which is not affected by the recent order of the Russian govern ment. Of the total exports to Russia from the United States in the fiscal year 1900, only $5,132,000 consisted of iron and steel man ufactures and agricultural implements, which classes include the chief articles affected by the recent order.

Fort Yates, N. D., Feb. 22. — Senator Kyle"s latest achievement is to secure an amendment to the Indian appropriation bill whereby the Indians will again re ceive the beef hides for their exclusive benefit. Commissioner Jones, it is under stood, opposed the amendment, but it car ried unanimously. Nothing, in years has stirred up ill feeling among the Indians so much as the taking away of the bi-weekly hide money. The amount to each individ ual was not over 10 or 15 cents, but with this each bought oil, tobacco, etc. The department for a time took the money away altogether, but subsequently paid for the hides in a lump sum yearly. Perhaps no stronger indorsement of the reservation system could be found than the result of the present quarantine. While a few miles from the reservation smallpox, diphtheria and scarlet fever are epidemic, not a single case has been found on the reservation. But for the police the loss of life among both Indians and whites would be great, as the Indians are great wanderers in the winter. In a recent widely quoted speech, Dr. Lyman Abbott advocated the turning loose of the Indians to shift for themselves. He referred to their "barbarism" as being something which the white man was not bound to respect. Dr. Abbott is no doubt well meaning, but a person who has not lived among the Indians is not qualified to speak authoritatively on the subject. The Indian is no longer a barbarian, but he is a child in intellect. He is unlovely, and uninteresting. He is given to tale bearing and laziness. Ingratitude is his worst fault. Child-like, he has no remembrance of past favors, if you cannot grant his im mediate wants. But he is, for the most part, honest and a man of his word. As a church goer he has no equal. He takes his family and his provision along with him and spends all of Sunday at his place of worship, be it Protestant or Catholic. Through the week there will be two or three meetings, at which he will sing hymns, and talk; it is hard to say how much the Indian really understands of the white man's religion, but the singing, talking and feasting, are an agreeable di version in a monotonous life. It is a constant wonder to him that the white man takes so much trouble to convert him and goes to church so little himself. His white neighbors, the trader and the rancher, are not much given to church going. The most discouraging thing about the Indians is that the rising generation is for the most part hopelessly lazy. It is the older and uneducated Indians who do the most to hell) themselves. There is very llttle for a man to do on the reservation, outside of the ranche work. White men do not care to hire Indians when they can get people of their own kind fully as cheap. Duffy's , CONSUMPTION Jf™, *" T I Bronchitis. Chills, Coughs, r 111*11 Colds.
