. ,-m'V, ~w IT JOLTED MB. EDDY Judge Lochren's Decision in the Mer ger Case "Surprised and Dis appointed" Him. No Competition Likely With Major ity of Stock in Two Concerns Held by Single Firm. * Special to The Journal. Gleuwood, Minn., Aug. 11.Former Con grssmnn Eddy when askpd for his opinion ut Judge Lochren's decision on the merger can* said: "It wculd be preauntptloua on my part, owlnp to my limited legal knowledge and comparatively meager information on the subject, to question Judge Lochren's decision. 1 have known Judg6 Lochren all my life, and, in common with every other citizen of Minnesota, I know that his integrity is above question and that his legal attainments are of the very highest order, and every fair minded man must concede that, after a full and careful consideration of the matter, he has decided the case according to the lavir and the evidence as the same appeared to him. and that his decision stands as the yaw until reversed by u higher court. "But I am constrained to say that I was both surprised and disappointed at his de cision. To my mind there were but two points to deside: "FirstIs the Northern Securities company a railroad company? "SecondIs it a combination in restraint of trade? "These are the points on which the whole case hinges. The judge says in his findings of facts that the company owns and holds 96 per cent of the stocK of the Northern Pacific company and 76 per cent of that of the Great Northern. Hence, the inevitable conclusion is that the Northern Securities company owns and controls a majority of the stock in the two roads, altho he says later on that it does not control a majority of stock in both roads. "It is not my duty to reconcile the two tatements. I think, however, it is safe to assume that the company does control a majority of the stock in Doth roads, for it it did not the purpose for which the com pany was organized would not have been at tained. And as the stockholders control, it Is a self-evident fact that the company would control the roads. The idea that two differ ent companies, a majority of whose stock is held by a single corporation, would compete with each other Is too ridiculous for con sideration. K "It seems to me that the Intention to com bine virtually two or more railroads and eliminate the element of competition is too manifest to need any argument to maintain It. That was the object of the formation of the Northern Securities company, and if that can be legally done there is no end to the elimination of competition in railroad or any other business. To sum up the whole mat ter in a sentence: It seems to me if the elimination of competition is in restraint of trade, then the formation of this company Is illegal. The idea that a company that con trols the majority of stock in one or more railroads does not dictate the management and is not practically a railroad company I dismiss as not worthy of the consideration of a thinking man." ESTIMATES FAIL Winnipeg Councilmen Snub Their Finance Committee. Special to The Journal. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 11,The council sat for about four hours last evening, leaving the estimates until the last. After two adjournments of short intervals, it failed to pass the estimates and the reduc tion of taxation which the whole city is waiting for. Alderman Russell several times moved that the estimates as a whole ba passed as recommended, but each time the motion was defeated, and, as one of the aldermen remarked, the council clear ly snubbed the finance committee by its action. None of the aldermen or the may or, was able to explain the matter. All they knew was that the estimates had not been passed. Twenty present and former citizens of the United States met last evening in Tuaeka Hall and took preliminary steps towards their organization of an Ameri can association in Winnepeg to be of an entirely social nature, so that members may become better neighbors and in a better position to welcome new comers to the city. A committee of five was ap pointed to draft bylaws and outline a form of government. PLACE FOR CRAWFORD Negro University Orator Appointed to a Court Clerkship. New York Sun Special Service.

Farmers are finding the stand rather thin, but say they have never before seen such fine, plump heads. Many are pre dicting the thresher will show heavier re turns than o*.ice expected. Unless the wet weather should continue, the county is going to nave the finest quality of grain it has ever produced, and it is going to have a fair amount of it. Corn and potatoes are in excellent shape, and if the frost holds off for a few weeks, the corn crop will mature very satisfac torily. , CLEAR, WARM WEATHER Countryside is Clamoring for ItCereals Damaged to Some Extent.

Wheat will be finished within a week and flax inside of two weeks. Clear, warm weather is what is most wanted now. The recent storms did not result in as much damage to crops as was estimated at the time, except in so far as the wet weather induced rust and reduced grades.

Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11 o'clock. It has been well patronized by those who do not care to remain out over night but on other nights south shore people from Cottagewood up the shore have been compelled to take a steamer io the Milwaukee station at Hotel St. Louis to connect with the 10:45 train which leaves every night during the lake season. St. Louis officials say that traffic is 40 per cent better this year than last, not the cool weather. They have intimated that next season the late train may be a regular feature. The renewed popularity of the Tonka Bay hotel, the unusual business done by the new Casino at Excelsior and the heavy patronage of the Keewaydin at Cottagewood, has re sulted in the swelling of the suburban traffic.

CHERRY PITS Literally Pilled Appendix, But There Was No Sign of Disease. New York Tribune. An operation was performed in St. Cath arine's hospital, Williamsburg, Saturday, on a nrivate patient for a cancer of-the stom ach, and resulted in finding in the man's appendix and other Intestinal organs nearly 100 cherry pita. Yet the oppecdix was in no way inflamed. The Identity of the patient was withheld. It was admitted last night at the institution that it was intended by the surgeons to wrie an exhaustive article for a medical journal. Dr. Mathias Figuera, a member of the surgical staff, had the pa tient sent to the hospital. According to the doctors the man de veloped what was believed to be a stomach disorder about July 4. A consultation was held and it was thought that the case looked much like cancer in the abdominal cavity, and it was decided to operate. When an incision was made in the abdom inal cavity there was found, in the appendix to the surprise of the surgeons, a large number of cherry pits, and In the other intestinal organs close by more of the same kind of obstructions. Two feet of the pa tient's intestines were removed, after which an artificial coecum was formed and joined together with both ends of the intestines. The appendix was found in a healthy con dition. The result of the operation was such surprise to the doctors who participated that it was decided that the greatest se crecy should be maintained in order that the medical press should receive the benefit of it for the medical profession. At the hospital and at the home of Dr. Figuera the name of the patient was refused. The pa tient is doing nicely. This sketch was made by Dorothy Bell, aged 13, Madison School, Minneapolis. .
