Annual reports are surpassing expectations In
most caBes and settlements aie made with de

that is felt In some divisions of the iron and
steel lndustrj, and it is especially gratifjing
to note that there is no evidence of speculative
influence In the gains of 1 or $2 a ton for
sheets, plates and wire products. Inquiries in
these departments have surpassed the supply
available for prompt delivery.

textile industries, business increasing as stock

New York, Chicago, St. Louis and Minneapolis,
as well as at a large number of interior points.
Country dealers, who have been bulls in the
market, are now falling over each other In

running into values of $10,000 to $15,000 have

Freight Movement for Last Year
Beaches a Total of Nearly 23,000,000
Net Tons, Valued at $196,000,000
Says Duluth-Superior Harbor Stands
Next to New York in Shipping
Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., Jan. 13.Major Charles L.
Potter, United States engineer in charge of Lake
Superior, has issued his annual report of th
cemmerce of the Duluth-Superior harbor, and all
Minnesota and Wisconsin people, he declares,
will take pride In it.
The ft eight movement for 1905 was 22,676,145
net tons of a total value of $196,751,084. Thl"
is an increase of 36% per cent over the receipts
and shipments in 1904, and the inciease in valu
ation is more than $38,000,000. The increase in
net freight tons for the harbor last year was 69.6
per cent over 18&0.
Major Potter says in his report that consider
ing the mean monthly freight ^movement during
the season of navigation, the Duluth-Superior
harbor practically stands next to New York.
The major finds it difficult to make compari
sons with the leading ocean ports of the United
States, for the reason that the customs houses
of ocean ports do not keep records of domestic
commerce. The Duluth-Superior harbor, bow
ever, is one of the most Important in the world
as regards volume and value of commerce.

privileges of the public library to the entire
county, and the matter is now before the
county commissioners. Under the plan pro
posed by the library board, any citizen of the
county will be entitled to a library card with
out individual charge, and thus be given the
privilege of drawing books from the library at
will. In addition to this, the local library,
acting for the state association, will secure
fcets of books for localities where arrangements
can be made for the proper handling of them,
for which there will be no chiarge. The county
will be asked to pay a certain amount each
month, or in a lump sum, all of which will
be used In the purchase of new books. The

School Causes Trouble.
MOORHEAD, MINN.A strike is tnreat^ned
in the Moorhead high school as the result of
the expulsion of five of the most prominent
young men of the school by Superintendent Mar

black hair was what they must have, and,
catching two boys off the school grounds, they
proceeded to acquire a quantity of coal-black
hair, the pride of one boy heart, and an equal
quantity of fiery red hair from the other.
Superintendent Martindale is firm In announ
cing that he will never take the young men
back. The latter have appealed to the school
board. In the meantime, about a score of the
other students have declared they wiU not re
turn to school unless the five are reinstated.

Wants Light Franchise.
Edward L. Healy, who owns a large water
power and flouring mill at Red Lake Falls, will
ask the city council of Grand Forks for an elec
tric light and power franchise for the distribu
tion of electricity thruout the city. In event
the franchise is granted, which is probable, Mr.
Healy will put In a powerhouse at fced Lake
Falls at a cost of something over $100,000, and
will transmit electricity to this city on a three
circuit line a distance oi thirty-five, miles.
A light Is being made against the Grand
Forks Gas & Electric company, the principal
stockholder of Which is W. J, Murphy of Min
neapolis, for lower gas, and this fight will have
its effect in favor of granting a franchise to
Mr. Healy, who promises electricity for illumi
nating and power purposes at a much lower
rate than is now furnished.
Take Fire Precautions.
The great loss of Ufe at tha West hotel fire
in Minneapolis has resulted in Chief of Police
Lowe being directed by State's Attorney Wine
man to make a report on the exits Of the various
public buildings at Grand Forks. A state law
requires that exit doors on hotels, churches,
-schools and other buildings used for public
gatherings shaU open outward. In construction,
this rule has not generally been observed, and
the fttll text of the law is 'to be enforced so
far as this city is concerned. The_ matter of
fire escapes will be taken up b? the'authorities
an the "ordinance designating the kind and the
number on buildings more than two stories high
will be enforced.
Opposition Contends Measure Provid
ing for Project Is Invalid.
ALBERT LEA. MINN.H. H. Dunn ot this
city, of the law firm of Lovely & Dunn, was in
Faribault to a'gue before Judge Buckham the
validity of the state drainage law as it applied
to the big ditch projected in the counties of
Steele and Waseca. The opponents to the
proposition contend that the law as signed by
Governor Johnton, Is invalid, from the fact that
the bill passed by the senate and signed by the
governor is a different bill from the one that
was originated and passed in the house. Should
the law be declared invalid by -the district court,
the matter ^will undoubtedly be taken to the
supreme court.

Herriott and Carroll Tell Friends They
Are Willing to Make Running, While
Garst and Clarke Keep Silent Till
Governor Cummins Decides if He
Will Seek Third Term*'
Speolal to The Journal.
Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 13.Lieutenant Gov
ernor John Herriott and State Auditor B,
Carroll will be candidates for governor to suc
ceed Governor Cummins.
Mr. Herriott to a party of friends at the
Grant club last evening, said that he is a
candidate, and ha his formal announcement
will soon be made. He resides at Stuart, In the
ninth congressional district. He is a stand
patter, but hopes, like Editor Perkins of Sioux
City, to be a compromise candidate. Mr. Car
roll resided at Bloomfield, Davis county, in the
first congressional district, when elected audi
tor. He now lives in a new home recently
purchased near the statehonse at Des Moines.
He has said to several legislators that he will
be a candidate for governor If be can command
sufficient support to place him in the attitude
of a compromise candidate.
Senator Warren Garst of Carroll refuses to
talk on the governorship, and Speaker Q. W.
Clarke of Adel will make no statement. This
leads to the belief that both gentlemen are
waiting for their personal friend, the governor,
to state positively whether he is a candidate
for a third term.
Resolutions for Tuesday.
Next Tuesday afternoon, on the reconvening
of the legislature. Representative Weeks of
Guthrie county will introduce the following con
current resolution:
"Whereas, The amount to be paid for trans
porting freight in this country, and the power
to fix and determine the same is a problem of
great importance to all our people, and should
be so adjusted and determined as to be just
and fair to those who pay, *ud Just and reason
able to those who receive and earn it the de
termination of this matter should be made by
a tribunal, competent, just and whose judg
ments would be accepted as fair and impartial
''Whereas, There has been established and is
now maintained by the government of the United
States a commission known as the interstate
commerce commission. We believe this- commis-
sion to be the proper tribunal to have and
apply the power of fixing and maintaining all
rates*for interstate transportation of freight
in this country, subject to such rights of ju
dicial inquiry as will give justice to all. There
fore, be it
"Resolved by the house, the senate concurring,
That William B. Allison and Jonathan P. Dol
Uver^ United States senators, together with all
the members of the house of representatives in
congress from the state of Iowa, be, and they
are hereby, respectfully requested to use their
influence and to so vote as to secure the passage
of a law whereby the interstate commerce com
mission will be empowered to fix and estab
lish interstate freight rates and charges, sub
ject to such rights of'review by the courts as
may be proper and equitable."
Senator Dowell of Polk has emphatically de
nied the report that he had refused to serve on
the code comrMsslon because he did not want
to be a party to a revision that would extend
the terms of the state printer and binder.
"My refusal to serve on this committee was
purely because I have not the time," said Sen
ator Dowell. "I art i personal friend df Rep
resentative English, who wants to be state print
er, but I did not have his oandidacy in mind,
nor did I think of factional polities- when-1 -re-
fused to serve.'"
Iowa Law Blocks Physician Collecting
Fees for Pauper.
ELDORA, IOWA.A new feature of the Iqfwa
law has, just been brought out by Judge Whit
taker in the district court of Webster county in
the case of Dr. Nelson vs. Webster county. The
plaintiff rendered medical service, to a Mrs.
Jones of the county, and the patient was at that
time a pauper on the care of the county. The
board of supervisors refused to allow the
claim which Dr. Nelson filed, for the reason
that he had not been authorized to treat the
woman, and suit was subsequently brought.
It was aleged that the woman was badly in
need of medical treatmert: that the board of
supervisors had made no provision for her, and
that the county physician bad refused to attend
her. Despite all this and the apparently great
need of tbe woman the Judge held that the
physician could not recover..
He stated that the law which governed the
case was in conflict with ifrblic policy and
morals, but that the statute was strict in regard
to the matter, and that unless authorized a
doctor could secure no pay for supplying medical
aid to a pauper.

Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., Jan. 13.The *eperfc of the
state food and dairy commissioner for the year
ending June 80, 1903, which will Boon be is
sued, will show that the dairy business of the
state is becoming a profitable -one to the farm
ers who take an interest in that branch of
agriculture. There were in operation in South
Dakota sixty-two creameries,- with 6,876 patrons.
The patrons received for milk and cream ft
the year $878,107.38. Some of the creamerie
were small affairs, doing a business of less thai
$5,000 for the year, but others show that th
farmers in their vicinity used their oppOrtnai*
ties for increasing their revenues In this mea
ner. The largest payments at any one cream
ery were at Madison, where there "was paid
out $81,817.70 Bowdle paid out $56,443 Clark,
$55,212 De Smet, $39,53S Iroquois, $33,718,
and the different creameries scaled from that
down to $2,000 at Brandon.
Besides the products of creameries, the cow*
ot the state paid probably more tcf their owi
ers thru private dairies than thru the creamer^
ies, putting the total amount received from tbi*
source for the year at a large figure for a new*
