Farms Get Lower Income Per Acre Be
cause Higher Freight Bates Are Paid
than in IowaHeavy Railroad Prof
its in This State at Expense of Pro
ducer, George S. Loftus of St. Paul, the ele
vator man who has led in the movement
for railroad legislation and lower
freight rates in Minnesota, is out with
a trenchant reply to James J. Hill's
speech delivered at "Willmar, Sept. 22
In this address Mr. Hill contended that
farmers qf Minnesota were not gettinr
the returns they should from their land,
and said:
"The state of Iowa todav has an an
nual income from her farm lands of
about $8.20 an acrq. In Minnesota it
is $4.67. In the southern tier of coun
ties it is a little under $6."
The Loftus reply is significant be
cause it is a circular to members of
the National Hay association. Mr
Loftus is chairman of the transporta
tion committee of that important body
of shippers. The circular in substance
is as follows
"Surely there is something the mat
ter with Minnesota of a most serious
character if Mr. Hill's statement is
true. Doubtless Mr. Hill obtained his
figures from the national census re
ports, and they may therefore be
cepted as authentic. In elaboration of
this statement, Mr. Hill gives some de
tails intended to prove that the farm
ers of Minnesota are not as intelligent
industrious or energetic is the farmerp
of Iowa. Mr. Hill admits-that the soil
of Minnesota is equel in all essential
qualities to that of Iowa, and that cli
matic conditions are practically the
same in both states, hence he must
needs arraign the farmers of Minnesota
sfcs occupying a low plane in the scalp
of their class.
A Few Statistics.

But He Did Not Tell How to Make It
The muscles of the body can be de
veloped by exercise until ^their strength
has increased manifold, and a proper
amount of training each day will ac
complish this result, but it is some
what doubtful whether you can in
crease the digestive powers of the
stomach by eating indigestible food in
order to force it to work.
Nature has furnished us all with a
perfect set of organs, and if they are
not abused they will attend to the
business required of them. They need
no abnormal strength.
There is a limit to the weight a man
can lift, and there is also a limit to
what the stomach can do.
The cause of dyspepsia, indigestion
and many similar diseases is that the
stomajch has been exercised toe much
and it is tired or worn out. Not ex
ercise but rest is what it needs.
To take something into the stomach
that will relieve it from its work for
a short timesomething to digest the
foodwill give it a rest and allow it
time to regain its strength.
The proper aid to the* digestive or
gans is Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets,
which cure dyspepsia, indigestion, gas
on the stomach and bowels, heartburn,
palpitation of the heart, and all stom
ach diseases.
Best and invigoration is what the
stomach gets when you use Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, for one grain of the
active principle in them is sufficient to
digest 3,000 grains of food.
Tablets increase the flow of gas
juice, and prevent fermentation,
acidity and sour emotions.
Do not attempt to starve out dys
pepsia. You need all your strength.
The common sense method is to di
gest the food for the stomach and give
it a rest.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do npt
make the cure, but enable the organs
to throw off unhealthy conditions.
Perfect digestion means perfect
health, for under*these conditions only
do the different' organs of the body
work right and receive the building-up
material found in pure blood.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are a
natura remedy and are a specific for
troubles,,- The ablest physi
Th Tablets pleasant to the taste,
and are composed of fruit and vege
table extracts, golden seal and pepsin.
At all drug stores50 cents per
sponse to this indictment, offer Mr
Hill a few statistics furnished by
reports of the railway and warehouse
commissioners of Iowa and Minnesota
for 1904, the latest official railway
statistics issued from these officiaJ
sources. From the reports of the rail
way companies furnished by them
selves, as printed in these reports, it
appears that the mileage and net earn
ings of the several railroads operated
in Iowa and Minnesota in 3903, were
as follows:
Net Net Earnings
Mileage Earnings per Mile
0,496 $16,433 235 $1 730
7,2u0 35,750,203 4,900
These statistics show that Minne
sota with 2,246 or 30 per cent less
mileage than Iowa, paid such excessive
rates that her railroads made $19,316,-
968 or 117 per cent net earnings in ex
cess of the railroads of Iowa, and $3,170
or 283 per cent moie net earnings per
mile. Equalizing the mileage of the
two states, Minnesota paid at the rate
of $24,112,058 more than Iowa in theduced
net earnings to her railroads in 1903.
''This tribute, this excessive burden
was principally borne by the products
of the farms of Minnesota. The grain,
the hay, the stock, the dairy and other
products of the farms of our state were
taxed to furnish the bulk of these ex
cessive millions.
Mr. Hill's Philanthropy.
"Mr. Hill, in his speech at the Fill
more county fair Sept. 20, sought to
impress his hearers with the fact that
railroad charges had been greatly, re-
duced-m recent years, and the inevit
able inference drawn from his state
ments would indicate that he was a
prime factor in that, beneficent work.
He stated that the' average receipts per
ton per 100 miles of all the railroads
of the country had been reduced from
$1.99 in 1870 to 74 cents in 1903. One
would, of course, infer that the rates
on his road (the Great Northern) must
be as low as the average thruout the
country, but an examination of the rail
way commissioner's report shows that
his rate for 1903 was not 74 cents, but
88-6-10 cents per ton per hundred miles,
14-6-10 cents or 20 per cent in excess of
the average thruout the country.
"The Chicago Great Western is the
only railroad in Minnesota that has re
its rates to a level that nearly
conforms to the average prevailing
thruout the country as quoted by Mr.
Hill. The rate per ton per 100 -miles
on that toad in 1903 Vas 74 76-100 cents,
13 84*100 cents or if- per cent less than
the Great Northern rate.
"Jollying^the Farmers.
"Early in:jfche' pseaeni *r,op year the
farmers along the* lines of the Great
Northern railway were jollied by the
much heralded announcement that Mr.
Hill had ordered a 20 per cent or-more
reduction in grain rates, and that this
action would force tbe Canadian Pacific
and the Soo Line tp reduce their rates
also. Have the farmers in northwest
ern Minnesota realised any appreciable
advantage from this greatly advertised
act of unsolicited grace upon the part of
Mr. Hill? So far as they are concerned
it is yet among the things hoped for.''
The facts in this case are, that the Soo
Pacific Line was the first to act. No
tice had beeVi? given by this company
that a reduced rate on grain from points
along its line would be put in effect on
a given date. The Great Northern
must, of course, meet this cut, and be
fore it had time to issue anew tariff
sheet, the corporation newspapers of the
twin cities heralded in exaggerated
head lines 1his generous contribution to
the prosperity of the farmers of Min
npsota. Thanks td} this action of the
Soo Line the farmers of North Dakota
have reaeped some advantage from this
reduction of rates, but as the reduction
is rapidly lessened in its application
eastward, it amounts to but a trifle in
Illegal Consolidation.
"In utter defiance of the spirit of the
laws of Minnebota^that prohibits the*
consolidation of parallel and competing
lines of railroad, Mr. Hill and his asso
ciates of the Great Northern railway
have acquired control of the Northern
Pacific railwaythe pioneer in the de
velopment of the great northwestan"d
have thus eliminated that line of road
as a competitor of tbe Great Northern.
On both these roads, therefore, except
