Owing to the steel strike, the completion of the building has been de layed for a year and it will not be ready for occupation until late in 1903. Bids will be received Sept. 24 for engine boilers, sky lights, and other articles, but owing to the tie-up in the steel works the bids will probably be so high that they will have to be rejected.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. 00M PAUL'S VISIT A Prospect That He Will Come to Minneapolis. HE SERIOUSLY CONSIDERS A TRIP Col. F. W. Bergmeier, Just Back From Holland, Met the Irani vaal'a President. If President Paul Kruger visits the United States this fall—and according to Col. P. W. Bergmeier, who has just re turned from Holland where he had a talk with the eminent Boer, he is very likely to do so—he will spend considerable of his time in the twin cities. In fact he may make Minneapolis and St. Paul his head quarters in this country. The reception accorded the Boer dele gates during their visit to Minnesota pleased Oom Paul greatly, and he has a very kindly regard for the North Star state. Colonel Bergmeier's description of the famous Boer leader's personality is in teresting. He says: I shall never forget the sight when I wa6 ushered before Oom Paul. He eat in a mass ive armchair richly carved with figures sym bolical of the South African war. He wa3 not the shattered or broken man I had been led to expect from the reports I had read at home, but the most majestic man I had ever met. Seventy-eight years old, he scarcely looked 60. He appeared rugged and hale. His eye was bright and had a piercing glance I ehall never forget. I felt like a schoolboy In his presence. He Is massive. He remained sitting throughout the interview, but I should gay he is at least six feet tall and remark ably thick set. When he took my hand I felt like a pigmy; his was twice as large as mln«. During the interview Mr. Kruger asked why Americans, who profess sympathy for the ißoera in their struggle for independ ence, were yet -willing to sell mules and munitions of war to the British. Col. Bergmeier replied that the mules had been trained before they were shipped to South Africa, and said that each animal had listened to the reading of the declar ation of independence before leaving this country. In support of his statement he called Oom Paul's attention to the fact that a number of animals had run away, during battle, and had carried large quan tities of ammunition and supplies into the Boer ranks. President Kruger laughed heartily at the pally and after that, as Colonel Bergmeier himself expressed it, everything was easy. G. A. R. Comrade*! Remember your friends!

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOTJRNAU. * CALLS IT A CRIME The Northwestern Miller Discusses Discrimination Against Flour, FUTURE OF EXPORT FLOUR TRADE It la Threatened by the Policy of the Railroads In Reoent Tariff*. The Northwoetern Miller in its last is sue discusses the freight rate discrimina tion against flour and in favor of wheat which threatens the future of American flour in foreign markets. It assert* that if the export trade of American flour for this season is ruined the railroads alone will be to blame. It says: Mover in the history of the milling trade did the season open with fairer and brighter prospects for an excellent and profitable ex port trade. Foreign competition had be«n fairly defeated in all open markets in a fair fight. American flour had attained a su premacy which was constantly increasing. The condition of foreign crops was such that, given a reasonable show, there was sure to be an increased demand for American flour. A brisk trade was confidently expected and everything pointed to a year of unexampled activity in the export flour trade; an activ ity whioh would continue throughout the year and would benefit not only the miller but the inland and ocean carrier as well. By the perpetration of an act, little if anything short of a commercial crime, the American transportation interest has deliberately im periled, if it has not already ruiued the prospects of the export flour trade of the United States for the coining year. Blind Stupidity. The blindly stupid commercial crime to which we refer is the transportation of wheat to foreign markets at a rate which is dis criminating as against flour. In June nearly 13,000,000 bushels of wheat were taken abroad, 50 per cent more than for the same month last year. In July the exports of wheat were over 18,000,000 bushels—nearly three times what they were in July last year. For the seven months ending with July, the exports of wheat were orer 95,000,000 bushels, as com pared with but 50,000,000 bushels last year. For the last six weeks the exports of wheat from the Atlantic ports have averaged the enormous amount of a million bushels per day, thus breaking all previous records. The American miller has watched this unexpected drain upon his resources and this wanton de pletion of his supply of raw material with dazed amazement. He has been utterly power less to prevent this rear attack upon his business hopes and. prospects. The enormous export of wheat continues unabated, and, with every bushel that goes abroad, the fu ture of American flour is proportionately handicapped. Beyond ali doubt this tremen dous and unprecedented movement of wheat is a direct and immediate result of cut rates given to favored shippers in return for enor mous tonnage. The rates on flour are utterly out of proportion to the rates on wheat, and a shortage in Europe which would legiti mately go to the American miller and arbitra rily and illegally taken from him by Ameri can transportation lines and placed with his foreign competitor. Owing to discriminating rates in favor of wheat and against flour, the foreign miller is able to purchase his raw material in America and actually drive Amer ican competition out of the market. That is perfectly clear to any reasoning being except to the railway manager who makes the dis criminating rate. The Difference. Wheat was booked day before yesterday from Boston to London at 1 shilling per ton, whereas the best rate obtainable on flour was 5 shillings. To cap the climax, to add Insult to injury, and to complete the de struction of the flour export trade, we are informed by the daily press that the eastern lines demand a further advance in flour rates! Nothing whatever is said about wheat, but rates on flour must be advanced, and we are told that the carriers east of Chicago are determined upon this course. After haul ing the wheat out of the country at a ridic ulously low rate, the carriers propose to make the product they have already discriminated against pay the price of their reckless folly and bring up the average of the joint earn ings from wheat and flour. The preposter ous proposition is that exporting millers must catch it both ways; first by a discrimina tion In favor of wheat and again by an ad vance In rates on flour. If anything more was necessary to completely destroy the prospects of the export flour trade, this pro posal would certainly furnlah it. Short-sighted Policy. After a detailed discussion of what It terms the short-eighted policy of the car riers the Miller concludes as follows: Of the 95,000,000 bushels of wheat taken from American shores during the seven months ending July 1, there is comparatively little which would not have crossed the ocean as flour had the American millers been given a rate equal to that granted the grain shipper. Of the millions of bushels rushed from Min neapolis to New York at a secret rate at least 6V2 cents less than the published tariff, and at least 6% cents less than any miller could get, not one single bushel but could, and undoubtedly would, have been ground into flour and sent abroad during the year to come, had th« transportation lines followed a wise and lawful instead of a stupid and criminal policy In handling it. The result would have been that the carrier, Instead of congesting his facilities with a cheap-rate product, would have had a steady flow of business the year around, which could easily have afforded to pay the tariff rate. WHAT'S THE N.-W. UP TOT Chicago & \orth-Weutern Article* Filed at Lincoln, Neb. Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 28.— J. B. Redfleld j of Chicago, assistant secretary of the Chicago & North-Western railroad, has filed articles of incorporation with the Nebraska secretary of state. The com pany stock is $63,000,000. Reference is made to the purchase of the old Chicago, St. Paul & Fond dv Lac company, but the articles are conditioned on the pur chase or lease of the Sioux City & Pa cific road. A copy of the old articles filed is signed by Samuel J. Tilden as president and O. D. Ashley. The fee paid for filing the articles was $6,255. The purpose of the incorporation at Lincoln is not known. W. A. Gardner, genral manager of the road was under the impression that the step was simply & preliminary measure to an old project af fecting the Sioux City & Pacific road. Office* Consolidated. Changes announced by Traffic Director Stubbs of the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific roads under the consolidation of the traffic departments of the»s two lines «re as follows: The Chicago offices of the two systems will be consolidated under W. O. Neimyer of the Southern Pacific. He is made general agent in Chicago, with general supervision over the agencies of the two lines in Plttsburg, Cincinnati and Detroit. J. H. Lathrop will be general agent in St. Louis, with general supervision over the southwest. H. W. Nathan will have entire charge of the south eastern territory with headquarters In At lanta, Ga. H. G. Kaill, with the title of as sistant general traffic and passenger man ager, will have supervision over the Kansas City territory with headquarters in that city. The Union Pacific agencies in Sioux City ! and St. Paul will be abolished and the busi ness transacted through the general offices of the Union Pacific ir. Omaha. The territory east of Pittsburg will be under the jurisdic tion of Assistant Traffic Manager Hawley in New York. «! The Cleveland ofnees of the Southern Pa cific have been closed. « River Low for Packet*. Unless rains should furnish a supply of water, not expected at this late date, there will not be any more Diamond Jo packets after this week. Advice* to this effect have been received from the company's headquar ters at St. Louis, while at down-river points, notably Winona and La Crosse, the agents have been notified to accept no freight for ! up-river, points after Wednesday, or for down-river points after the return trip of the i Quincy, which, it is expected, will be the i last boat for the present, if not the remainder of the season.

The construction will avoid the difficulty of the long haul to Pacific Junction and then south over the Montana Central. It was recently stated in Missoula that the Northern Pacific will rely upon President Hill's Crows Nest fields for its "company coal" for the western divisions as soon as the new line is opened. To Study Oor Method*. New York, Aug. 28.—The Northeastern railway, one of the great British systems, is to send to this country its general manager, general freight agent, locomotive superintend ent and dock engineer, to gain an exhaustive knowledge of railroad management and rail road dock construction. It is the intention of the British road to construct a line along the north bank of the river Tees, with a view to developing the industries in that re gion, American Engines Better. New York, Aug. 28.—The American loco motive has found favor with Japanese rail road officials, according to the correspond ent at Kobe. The superintendent of the San Yo company, at that point, says: "We don't intend to order any more En glish engines for the present. Our principal reasons are that we cannot get them quickly enough, and that they cost half as much again as American engines. The fuel con sumption comes out about the same with the American and British engine." "Won't Be V. P. Directors. New York, Aug. 28.—Reports that William K. Vanderbllt and J. Plerpont Morgan are to enter the board of directors of the Union Pacific railroad hare been circulating in Wall street for several days. It may be as serted on the highest authority that neither Mr. Vanderbilt nor, Mr. Morgan will become a Union Pacific director. A Rate Bureau Possible. It is proposed to establish a rate bureau in connection with the Western Passenger Asso ciation. It will have charge of all matters pertaining to the making of reduced or special rates of any kind. Railroad Note*. Commencing next Sunday the Northern Pacific will place in service an additional passenger train between Seattle and Spo kane. Donald Grant, contractor for the Burlington, Cedar Rapids ft Northern, says that the road will be running trains into the twin cities over the Milwaukee tracks by Oct. 10. The Omaha Railway company yesterday filed a copy of its placs for a boiler shop to be erected at Randolph and Duke streets in St. Paul. The building will be of steel and brick and will cost 950,000. The Northern Pacific announces a new pas senger train service on it* Fargo A South - weaura branch, a round trip to be mad* dally from Fargo to Kdgeley. Business on the branch is increasing rapidly. Thomas D. Hughes, for many years btation agent at Sheldon, N.
