waukee Determination of the
Koads to Reduce Rates May Cause
Soiuo Revision of the Governor's
PIJIUS.
Special to The Journal.
Madison, Wis., Dec. 29.Governor La
Follette will probably begin his campaign
for a renomination for a third term early
next month. AVithin the next few weeks
he will make political addresses at Su
perior, Racine and Milwaukee, the last
being before the inmates of the soldiers'
home. He will deliver his lecture on
Hamlet" at Duluth next month, and will
take advantage of his trip to make a
political address iti Superior. State Oil
Inspector K. G. Mills and other admin
istration men are arranging the Racine
meeting. Plans "are on foot to have many
meetings during the next five months.
The announced determination of the
railroads to make a large reduction in
freight rates Jan. 1 has come as a big
surprise to the administration, and will
cause the governor to revise his cam
paign plans, as he had intended to make
his fight principally for lower rates and
the creation of a state railroad commis
sion to fix rates. The administration ele
ment is skeptical of the sincerity of tho
railroads.
The governor left last night on a tour
,f inspection of the state charitable and
'penal institutions. He is accompanied by
the live members of the state board of
control. He went first to the state prison
at Waupun, where he spent last night.
From there he will go to OshKosh to in
spect the northern hospital for the Insane.
To-morrow he will inspect the soldier*'
home at Waupaca and the intermediate
reformatory at Green Bay. He expects
to return home Thursday afternoon, and
"will probably resume his inspection week
'after next.
Alleged Act of Contempt.
Whether Sheriff Robert J. McWatty of
this city and his six assistants are inthe
contempt in the federal court for forcibly
breaking into the Sutter Bros.' warehouse
here, in the hands of Receiver Ralph W.
Jackman, and carrying away ten cases
,of leaf tobacoo, is being determined by
I Court Commissioner H. M. Lewis.
' The ten cases of tobacco are stored in
Ahe basement of the courthouse, the cir
jcuit court being the technical custodian.
I 'Xwo days before bankruptcy proceedings
were commenced against Sutter Bros, a
representative of the A. G. Becker com-
' pany of Chicago came here and took pos
session of some 500 cases of tobacco in
i the warehouse, for which he said he held
fr*
, lill of sale and -warehouse receipts. In
this lot of tobacco were the ten cases
seized by the sheriff, who took them on
a writ of replevin sworn out by Samuel
G. Brown of New York city, the alleged
owner.
Brow n claimed title to the ten cases
of tobacco, alleging that he had pur
chased them some time prior to the bank
ruptcy proceedings and stored them in
the Sutter warehouse. The defendants
maintain that the .federal court of this
district has no jurisdiction and had no
authority to ^appoint Mr. Jackman co
receiver with two Chicago men, because
the federal court of northern Illinois had
previously appointed receivers for the en
tire property of the bankrupts, and that,
tho the receiver was in possession of
the warehouse in which the tobacco in
question was stored, he was not in reality
in possession of the tobacco, as it had
been set aside prior to the bankruptcy
proceedings.and placed in the custody of
a representative of the Becker company of
'&
Chicago. The receiver contends that he
Si '
Avas legally and actually in possession of
the seized tobacco and that the act ofcooked
the sheriff and his assistants in forcibly
entering the warehouse and carrying away
the tobacco was an act of contempt.
State Fair as Usual.
It is practically settled that Wisconsin
will hold a state fair next fall. The rail-
'4* "'
J rtiVl companies have signified their will-
ingnes s to attach fair admission coupons
to their transportation tickets to Milwau
kee during fair week and to make other
concessions to aid in the success of the
fail. If it is decided to hold the fair
tho time will be the second week of Sep
tember.

SUPERIOR, WIS.The grain interests appear
to be making good their threat.. to the effect
that if the city taxed grain found in Superior
elevators, it would next year-And hone to tax.
Nearly all of the big granaries are empty and
it is said that what little is in store will he
sliippe so that there will be scarcely a lmsliel

of property is tnken.
. It: is an unprecedented condition of affairs
that, exists here. (train that could not he

Some has been sent to Chicago by the all-rail
route, while some has been shipped over- to Du

Globe elevator system, with a. capacity of 5,000,-
000 bushels, has about :!00,000 bushels of barls-y
on hand, with three men employed. The Belt
Line elevators are cleaned out and twenty men
have been laid off. The Great Northern houses
are all being emptied into the big shipping
house, the steel elevator s. for the purpose of
rushing it out in the spring. The terminal ele

It is expected the owners of the Superior

Clifford S. Jones Caught Between
Roundhouse Door and an Engine.
MARSI-IAWrOW.V, IOWA.The coroner de
elded that an inquest into the death of Clifford
S. Jones, who was killed at the Iowa Central
roundhouse here, was unnecessary, as clearly
there was no one to blame for the accident.
Jones came to this city to obtain employment
with the railroad. One of the employes was
backing an engine out of the roundhouse and
Jones thought to ride down the yards upon it.
He ran to the cab, grasped tlie handles ana lifted
himself to be steps. He was warned by
Foreman Kelsey to get off, but in 11 moment
had beon caught between the door sill of the
stall and the engine and ground to pieces.
Judge Caswell appointed a receiver for the
business of F. P. West, a boot and shoe dealer

the receivership will be onlv temnorary.

Cattie Dying of Scab.
The live stock industry in the western
part of the state is receiving a severe
setback because of the prevalence of scab
among - cattle. Dr. R. H. Treacy, state
veterinarian for this district, reports many
cases. He says the disease has caused
more deaths among cattle in the past year
or so than blackleg, and in one instance
he says he ran across a band of seventy
or eighty head of cattle last spring, all
C.proposed
deacl of scab.
The disease is similar to mange in dogs,
the parasite in all animals being similar,
but, except in the case of a few animals,
the parasite of one animal will not live
on another. They are extremely tenacious
of life, and local applications and what
are known as 'coid dips'' prove of little
avail. Infected cattle become restless, and
the itching sensation causes them to
struggle furiously in their efforts to re
lieve themselves. A^the disease pro
gresses the skin becomes thicker, the ani
mals become listless and stupid, and at
length Jie clown and'die. Unless meas
ures are taken to relieVevtheni, Dr. Treacy
predicts a large cattle loss in the western
part of the state duringUlig present win
ter. / ' - "'
H ot Water Dippings.
General dipping of tjhe cattle with an
antiseptic solution, in' which sulphur is
the chief component element, is the only
means of eradicating the disease. Smear
ing with sulphur and paraffine oil affords
temporary relief, sometimes for weeks or
months. The disadvantage of combating
the disease at the present time lies in
the fact that dipping the cattle in cold
weather is likely to result in many deaths
from pneumonia.
A dipping tank that will dip 300 to 100thee
head of cattle a Gay costs about ?600.
It is necessary to have steam to heat
the water in the tank, as the hot dip is
the only sure method of killing the para
sites. Two dippings are necessary, the
second at the end of the period of incu
bation of the parasitic egg. ~

part of the state have erected immense

EXPERIMENTS ON
MINNESOTA FARMS
FACTS PROM TWO YEARS' WORK |
NEAR NORTHFIELD.
State and Government Interested in
the Work or Professor Hays, Who
Is Now Summarizing Results of
Farm Statistical Investigations
During 1902.
Special to The Journil.
Northfield, Minn.. Dec. 29.The results
for 1902 of the statistical investigations' at
Northfield, Marshall and Halstad, which
are being carried on by the state experi
ment station and the statistical bureau of
the United States department of agricul
ture, are being summarized. These in
vestigations were undertaken to secure
facts for the use of all the farmers of the
state as to the cost, returns and profits of
each line of business on the farm. Super
intendent W. M. Hays says:
"We did not half appreciate in the start
the many ways in which farmers and
teachers of agriculture could use the facts.
Th first year the route man at each of
three places visited daily about fifteen
farms, this year twelve, and the number
will be further reduced in 1904. One rea
son for using a smaller number of farm
ers is that it is found necessary to take
up the collection of statistics as to the
cost of producing live stock products, in
part that the values of those field crops
which are fed on the farm may be secured.
It was necessary to devise the methods of
carrying: on these experiments and. of
tabulating- and interpreting the results.
Substantial progress has been made and
the general scheme of studying farm man
agement thus opened up gives promise of
being worthy of use in other states.
"The problems presented are so very
difficult that to attempt to solve them
would not be profitable or feasible were it
not for the,fact that the country cannot af
ford to run its farming business in a way
to produce only four billion dollars worth
of plant and animal products annually,
where the available soil, man labor and
horse labor should annually produce prod
ucts worth Ave or six billions."
It was found that the cost of growing
an acre of field corn, including cutting,
shocking and shredding, was $14,821 The
cost each acre when husking on the hill
was $11.81.
Some of the factors used, as 15 cents
an hour for man labor and iyz cents an
hour for horse labor, have not been final
ly settled upon, hence the footings may
be changed before the facts are filially
published.
Continuing:, Mr. Hays says: "The ques
tions which these investigations are going
to put up to every farmer-are:- Am I
terming in the most practical way? Is
my land properly lai out in. ftelcls which
provide for the most profitable rotation?
Could I not dovetail my crops and live
stock work together so as to produce more
and with no more labor of man andInjuries
teams? Are my fields becoming r-icher or
poorer?
"Out of this work is growing a method
of treating farm management more as
an engineering proposition. Every farm
is a very complex problem but can it not
be treated far more practically and scien -
tifically?"

STOCK FROM RAN GE
Fifty Head Shipped to Beresford and
Sold for Good Figures.
PIEKKK. S. D.The matter of raining regis
tered stock in this part of the state was taken
up several years ago by P. V. McClore of this
city, who started with Shorthorns, on his ranch
east of this city, and afterward added Herefords
to his herd, bringing in several registered bulls
from some of the best herds in the country for
breeding purposes.
Per several years- breeders in this part of the
state lave been stocking up from these herds,
but the iiureise was greater than was called for
by local demand, and last week fifty head of
cattle from this herd, all Shorthorns, were
shipped to Beresford and sold at public auction.
'.Tliey were x*atlier rougii looking from having
run on thj range, but the herd of fifty brought
an average return of $90 a head, one calf selling
at $200 and a cow at $150.
These pi-ices show what care and breeding, and
the handling of stock in small bunches In en
closed pastures will do for the country.
