Buoyant Market on Eve of Quiet
Time of Year.
Buyers ©t Steel May Not Secure
KnougU to Operate Their
Cleveland, Nov. 21.— Iron Trade Re
view, discussing market conditions, says:
A buoyant iron market on the eve of the
quiet time of the year Is an anomaly, but
there are growing signs of a condition under
■which the market might readily cut loose.
In the past week pig Iron has advanced,
though important produoers have steadily op
posed an advance, and throughout the trade
there has been a feeling that the limit has
been reached. The course of the market in
the past three months has been a general
surprise, and has eontradloted the predic
tions of all the trade oracles. Leading south
era Interests were quoted only a few weeks
ago, after a 60-oent advance In foundry iron,
■** •etrangly opposing any , further increase
5k iprioe. but in the week under review, prices
have moved up 60 cents, and $11.50, Birming
-9)», ml is now the minimum for No. 2 foundry.
Bessemer iron on thre-month contracts by
higher than foundry grades, in line with con
ditions in steel, has moved up still.higher,
and sales have been made in the past week
at $15.50, Valley furnace. The purchase of
bessemer iron on three-month contracts by
the United States Steel corporation Is now
under consideration, and the demand on mer
chant Bessemer furnaces from other sources
may lead to this change from the policy of
buying month by month. -■■ : -,
The pig-iron statement for Nov. 1, showing
a reduction of 88,000 tons in October coinci
dent with an Increase in output, was a sur
prise. It is now evident that, with the bank-
Ing of central western furnaces for lack of
coke, the stock reduction in November will
be even greater. , In the valleys and the Pitts
burg district, furnaces are taking their turn
in waiting for coke, and there will be alter
nating banking and starting for some weeks.
It is estimated that 60,000 tons of Bessemer
has been sold at various consumers in the
week. As high as $15.70 at Valley furnaces
has been paid. In addition, £5,000 tons of
basio iron from an eastern furnace was
bought at $15^75, delivered, Pittsburg. For
the first time since 1599 Virginia iron has
been shipped Into northern Ohio on a basis
ot about $13 at the furnace. In the week some
oontracts for Connesllsville furnace coke for
the first [half of 1002 have been made at $2
at the oven, as against $1.75 for outside coke.
The steel situation grows no better, and it
Is a serious Question with some buyere of
billets, ehet bar and slabs, -whether they can
secure a sufficient supply for the operation^
of their plants in the next six months.
Serious Results Promised If Miners
Strike in France.
Paris, Nor. 21.—The question of a gen
eral strike of the French miners is again
causing anxiety. The miners three de
mands —shorter hours, more pay and pen
sions—would. If granted, involve an an
nual expense to the state of 80,000,000
francs. It is evident the leaders of the
miners take no real Interest in a com
plete settlement. The men's demands, if
granted would inevitably cause the ruin
of the majority of mine proprietors and
If the general strike takes place it will
prove a question of life or death to the
republic. The importation of foreign coal
would result in violence on the part of
the miners. What would be the conduct
of the soldiers so long the object of the
incitations of the Reaccionaries and so
cialists is asked. Can the government
count on the troops?
Controversy Among Admirals Lead*
to the Filing: of a Charge,
Washington, Nov. 21.—Three chiefs of
bureaus of the navy department, Rear Ad
miral Bradford, chief of equipment; Rear
Admiral Bowles, chief constructor, and
Rear Admiral Kenny, paymaster general,
are involved in serious controversy which
has culminated in a charge of disobedience
of orders filed against the first named
Admiral Bradford ordered the building
of four coal barges wanted by the Pacific
fleet. Under a recent order of Secretary
Long the construction of te barges be
longs to the construction bureau.
Admiral Bradford's friends say he sent
the order for the barges the day before
Secretary Long's order was issued.
Chicago Man Thought His Henroost
Wm Being Robbed.
Chicago, Nov. 21.—Charles and John
Miller, brothers, of Toronto, Canada, were
riddled with small shot here to-day. The
former will die. John is seriously
•wounded. The shooting was done by
Robert Coburn, who thought the men
were about to rob his henroost. John
Miller said he and his brother were with
out money and were merely seeking a
lodging in Coburn's barn. Coburn drove
four miles to a police station with the
unconscious form of John Miller in the
bottom of a wagon. The police found .the
latter's brother two hours later. Coburn
was detained by the police.
New One la Promised, With a Lively
Wax in Sight.
New York, Nov. 21.—A movement of
Bignificant character in the tobacco in
terest is attracting much attention in the
trade and the financial districts. This
movement is the project for a new tobac
co combination which when completed, is
likeJy to have a capital stock of $50,
--000.000. William H. Butler, now president
of the Universal Tobacco company, j and
formerly vloe president of the American
Tobacco company, will in all probability
be chosen president of the new organiza
tion. It is regarded as possible that a
war similar to that now going on in Great
Britain may yet take place in this country.

Twin City-Chicago Representatives
in Session at Chicago.
Fast Throuyn Sleepers on North-
Western and Milwaukee Com
plicate the Situation.
Officials of the Minneapolis-Chicago
lines meet in Chicago to-day .to discuss
reduction of time schedules from Minne
apolis to Chicago. The action of the Mil
waukee and the North-Weetern in plac
ing through sleepers on their fast trains
will be discussed. The fact that the Mil
waukee recently added a second sleeper
,to its fast mail is evidence that the move
is attracting business aijd this result has
been awaited by the other lines before tak
ing action.
None of the local officials Is ■willing to
hazard a prediction on the outcome of
the meeting. In some quarters it is pre
dicted that the weak lines will withdraw
from the Western Passenger association
and go it alone on rate making. In oth
ers it is believed that the meeting will
result in a friendly settlement of the con
troversy. The intentions of the Milwau
kee and North-Western as to the ten-hour
trains will cut much figure in the dis
The Minneapolis-Chicago lines will
again take up the question of party rates
at a meeting to be held in Chicago during
the week., of Nov. 25, and it is thought
that the rates will be canceled. The
question has been hanging fire for months.
It results.directily from the contention of
the war department that the latter should
be allowed the government by reason of
such roads being land grant concerns.
The recent reduction In the rate from
Minneapolis to New York from $31.50 to
$27.50 by the roads in the Western Pas
senger association and their Chicago con
nections is causing much discussion. This
brings the rate within $2 of the $25 rate
made some time ago by General Passenger
Agent W. R. Callaway of "the Soo. There
Is much guessing as to the future action
of the Soo in this particular. I Mr. Calla
way'a next move is awaited with interest.

General Andrews Disappointed in
Outcome of Fire Cases.
Special to The Journal.
Princeton, Minn., Nov. 21.—The cases
In this county for setting or causing for
est fires were all dismissed in justice
court. At Milaca, Christian Waxmuth
and H. L. Winter were tried before Jus
tice Norcross for having caused fires, the
arrests having been made on warrants
sworn out by Chief Fire Warden Andrews.
Both cases were dismissed because of lack
of sufficient evidence. The case against
the section foreman, Otto Lindberg, here
yesterday, was also dismissed for the same
reason. General Andrews was very much
wrought up over the outcome, and re
marked in the court room that "you can
burn up If you don't care to find men
guilty."—The body of Chas. Olson, who
was run over by the cars at Sandstone,
was brought home for burial yesterday.
He lived in Greenbush. —Princeton shipped
out forty cars of potatoes to-day. About
ninety cars were set out at this place
Monday for loading potatoes and grain.

ber—Two Associations Proponed.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Nov. 21.—The South
Dakota Retail Merchants' association will
meet here Dec. 10 and 11. The idea is to
either continue the work of the old as
sociation with new officers or to organize
two separate associations, a retail hard
ware association and an association of
retail grocers. It seems to be the opin
ion of many that the latter plan is the
best. A rate of a fare and a fifth will
be granted on the certificate plan. Some
prominent men will speak, among them
President P. G. Hanson of the National
Association of Retail Grocers and W. S.
Thomas, president of the National Im
plement 'Manufacturers' association.

Did Governor Van Sant steal a march on the
railroad and warehouse commission, or did
he take it for granted that the right sort
of action was not to be expected from that
body as at present constituted?
The governor was not acting outside of his
province, which is to see that the laws
of the state are observed.
The state law, however, has created a
branch of government for the purpose of
protecting the rights of the people as against
the railroad corporations. The law reads:
The commission hereby created shall have
authority to inquire into the management of
the business of all common carriers, subject
to the provisions of this act, and shall keep
itself informed as to the manner and method
In which the same is conducted, and shall
have the right to obtain from such common
carriers full and complete information neces
sary to enable the commission to perform the
duties and carry out the objects for which it
was created.
This is certainly broad enough, and ex
plicit enough, to cover the present instance.
The law also makes the attorney general the
attorney for tihe commission. Had the com
mission "kept itself informed," as the law
directs, it could have taken such action as
that of the governor weeks in advance of
Members of the commission do not believe
that the law wiil prevent the transfer of stock
to the Northern Securities company, and in all
probability they never would have acted in
the matter. They now take the position that
the matter is out of their hands. The gov
ernor has taken hold of it, and there is noth
ing for them to do. They have done nothing,
and only one of them has signified that he is
with the governor in the fight.
It is very evident that the governor felt it
was "up to him," and that if he did not act
promptly, nothing would be done. Commis
sioner C. F. Staples is ready to back up the
governor as far as the law will permit. He is
not sanguine as to the outcome in the courts,
but feels that the proposed action is contrary
to the spirit of the Minnesota laws, and
should be prohibited by the letter. He said
The governor's action has stirred up public
sentiment to a high pitch. If this consolida
tion cannot be legally prevented, other ways
will doubtless be found to visit popular dis
pleasure on the offending companies. They
must expect adverse legislation.
The governor has done all that is necessary
just now. He has started the ball rolling.
When the attorney general returns it will be
determined whether to bring an action in the
courts. If this action is "not brought, or if
it falls, the popular displeasure will have a
vent. The people of Minnesota will demand
state regulation of tfie most rigid kind.
They will demand the closest scrutiny of the
conduct of the roads interested, so that the
slightest misstep may be noted. They will
demand the closest regulation of tariffs, and
a keen watch for pissible discriminations.
Who will carry out these demands? Under
the laws of the etate, the railroad and ware
house commission,is charged with the work.
Without impugning the honesty of members
of the commission, it must be said that the
people generally do not have confidence in a
majority of them as safeguards of their inter
ests. That confidence may yet be won.
If not; if this fight waxes hotter until the
extra session of the legislature, there will
be a popular demand for the retirement of
the present commission in favor of one ap
pointed by the governor.
The commission is now elective and abso
lutely independent of the governor for the
first time in the history of the state. The
experiment has not worked well at any stage.
Just now the condition of affairs is peculiarly
unfortunate. The governor has no influence
with the commission, and cannot look to them
to carry out his policy or this ideas.
This seems certain to be one of the issues
of the special session, if it shall be found
that the courts cannot prevent the consoli
dation. The commission has few friends in
state politics. The feeling is widespread that,
with its present membership, it is a burden
on the republican administration and a con
stant cause of explanations and apologies.
Months ago the movement to legislate the
commission out of office began. It has been
widely discussed among members of the legis- 1
latrue and considerable support assured. The
present crisis will strengthen the feeling and
the chances- of success. A good many mem
bers are bound more or less by favors in the
matter of appointments, which have usually
been made on the recommendation of senators
and representatives from each county. The
majority, however, are likely to rise above
suoh considerations, and look at the welfare
of the state and the party.
A little canvass to-day among republicans
of state prominence supports the statement
that the present commission is decidedly un
popular, and that a move to legislate them
out of office would be generally commended.

Spink County Has Taken the Great
est Amount, With Campbell
County Second.
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., Nov. 21.—Over a million
and a half dollars of the permanent school
fund is loaned to the different counties of
the state, and by the counties to farmers
and municipalities on mortgages and
bonds, by far the largest amount being
loaned on mortgages. The loans are
more numerous ia the northern part of
the state than in the southern and more
thickly settled portions, but the income is
divided on school population and the
counties which do the most to keep the
state school fund drawing income are not
the ones securing the greatest benefit.
Out of the whole amount loaned, $160,438
is loaned west of the Missouri river, most
of it in the Hills country. Stanley .coun
ty is the only one in the state which is
not handling state funds, as no loans are
made in that county. Spink county has
the largest amount of the fund, with
$97,000; Campbell is second with $84,390;
and Brown third with $81,614. The total
loaned by counties is:

Taxable Valuations So Low That tlie
City Is Injured.
Special to The Journal. ',
Fargo, N. D., Nov. 21.—There has been a
cry on the part of some property owners
of Fargo over the ihigh percentage rate
of taxation. Mayor Johnson has all
along contended that If a proper valua
tion, -was placed on property in this state
and 'city, the per cent would not be so
large as to be terrifying to outsiders look-
Ing for investment.
Just to convince the public that lie was
correct, he has written to several cities
in different parts of the country for a
statement as to assessed valuation in pro
portion to population. Some of those tak
en at random are Madison, Wis., with
19,164 people, assessed valuation $18,220,
--587; Terra Haute, Ind., with 36,676, $23,
--000,000; Helena, Mont., with 11,000, $10,
--200,000; Fargo, with 9,589, has an assessed
valuation of only $2,971,740.
Y This shows that Fargo's method of re
turning • property for taxation purposes
at about 25 per cent of its value, gives
the city a black eye in at least two ways.
The showing is extremely bad and the
levy has to be made so much higher on
the small valuation that vit looks like
confiscation. ; Madison and Helena have
valuations approximating $1,000 per capita,
while Fargo is ' less then $300. While
there are many men of wealth in Madison
and Helena, no one ibelieves for a moment
the difference is as much as shown by
the assessed valuation and the figures
have aroused the public fto the injustice
being done. •

Boat Inspectors Report.
Special to The Journal.
Winona, Minn., Nov. 21. —Captains J. B.
Knapp and James Sherman, inspectors in
charge of the Dubuque district, between Keo
kuk and Red Wing, have completed their
work. During the season they inspected 118
boats and five barges. Boats inspected dur
ing 1900 numberer 129, but the shortage does
not mean the dropping out of that number of
steamers. The other boats were probably
inspected in some other district. There has
been a big increase in the number of small
pleasure boats, but this does not show in the
report of the inspectors, as no boats smaller
than fifteen tons burden are inspected. The
report shows that all the boats engaged in
short packet runs on the upper river did a
good business during the year.
