PIANOS
BUSINESSMEN MAY FORM COM-
PANY TO BUILD IT.
Success of the Plan Would Aid the
Project for a Third Avenue Bridge
ACTOSB the Mississippi, Also that for
a New Postoffice Building.
Minneapolis business interests, espe
cially real estate men and those inter
ested in property or business in the
Bridge square district, are busy discuss
ing the new union station problem. The
project is to be tackled in earnest this
time. A union station company of Min
neapolis men will be formed if neces
sary, so that the James J. Hill domina
tion, which is the great drawback to
hte development of the present Union
Station company, mav be eliminated.
Two other most important features
of municipal development are closely
allied +o the station project. One is the
proposed new bridge across the Mis
sissippi at Third avenue S, and the
other is the new postoffice that is badly
needed and sure to come a few years
at most. The bridge is needed to di
vert heavy thru traffic from Nicollet
and Hennepin avenue and to relieve the
congestion on the present steel arch
bridge.
The postal authorities will assist the
citv in its fight for a new postoffice
much quicker with a new union station
actually in sight than under present
conditions. The now office must be
close to the station and, if possible,
will be so situated that sidetracks or
mail cars can be provided on the prop
erty. The new building will not be
more than a quarter of a mile from the
station, as railroads carrying^ mail are
obliged to transport it that distance, if
the postoffice is within the quarter-mile
limit. Outside of the limit, the gov
ernment bears all expense of carrying
mail.
These three important live munici
pal issues, backed by the hustle and
energy of the united business interests,
are VJound to carry, and the Bridge
Square district is certain of a return of
some of its former activity and im
portance. In addition it will provide
an ideal entrance to the city for visit
ors will make Minneapolis the wait
over point for transcontinental travel,
and be a great benefit generally.
Property owners attempting to reap
a harvest by placing exorbitant values
on property in the district will find ob
stacles in their way. The work will be
fairly done, sufficient returns will be
made, but the work is undertaken for
Minneapolis and will be made to go

Davies was awarded $975 damages and
this -judgment is affirmed by the circuit

VALUE OF $75,000,000.
Engineer Oooley of Highway Commis-
sion Compiles Valuable Information
Preparatory to Beginning Next Year
to Construct Experimental Roads
Good Roads Convention to Be Held
in Duluth.
In spite of the fact that the state
highway commission has no money
available this year for use in the con
struction of roads, much work is being
done under the guidance of George W.
Cooley, engineei and secretary of the
commission.
Detailed information is now being
compiled from all the counties of the
state in regard to their road mileage
and their expenditures on road work
and what material for road building is
found in each county. Mr. Cooley has
received returns from about half the
counties of the state These show an
ed on roads, an average of $1,000 a
mile for every road in the state.
More Money in Sight.
This year the'highway commission
has only $6,000 available, most of
which will have to go into otfice ex
penses. Next year the one-twentieth
of a mill tax will create about $42,000.
From $5.0,000 to $20,000 additional will
be on hand for use from a former road
fund.
This money will all be distributed
under direction of the highway com
mission instead of thru the state audi
tor by whom road construction aid has
heretofore been given out. The com
mission will endeavor to ch'stubute the
money according to the special need of
each county, not over 3'per cent to any
one county, and none to receive less
than of 1 per cent.
Will Experiment with Material.
In the coming annual report of the
commission a number of recommenda
tions will be made based in large de
gree upon experiments which are to
begin this month in the Red River val
ley under Engineer Cooley's dnection.
A number of strips of road will be
built with the object of ascertaining
the best method of. road construction
in "gumbo" soil.
The highway commission plans to
hold a convention in Duluth May 15
and 16, which will be the largest good
roads" gathering ever held in the
state. At the Duluth convention a
project will be started for the con
struction of a 150-mile highway be
tween the twin cities and Duluth. It is
the plan to have a great part of this
highway of macadam, and the balance
in rolled gravel.
This year the highway commission
has held twenty county good roads''
conventions with considerable success,
a local good roads association being
organized at -each place a convention
was held.

OLD MENRESUMEWORK,
PHONE MANAGERS SAY
Desertions are alleged to have begun
in the ranks of the striking telephone
construction men now out on strike,
tho the strikers themselves will not ad
mit it. Both companies have secured
some old men and new men from else
where, and are beginning to resume
outside construction. A large corps of
strikers has been detailed to picket
duty and will try to prevent any ex
tensive work. Part of the new men se
cured are from Texas and come "well
heeled" and ready for disputes.
The strikers say their men are stand
ing firm and that additions to their
ranks are being made every day, in
substantiation oi which a bunch of ap
plications for membership to the union
is shown. There 4s also a dispute over
the action of a part of the Northwest
ern company's employees at St. Cloud.
Officers of the company make public
today a resolution adopted by the St.
Cloud men on Sunday. The resolution
is as follows:
Resolved, That we, the undersigned,
employees of the Northwestern Telephone
Exchange company, being requested by
the. local unions of I E. W. Nos. 23
and 24, to recognize the action taken by
those locals in calling a strike against
the above company, hereby repudiate the
action of said locals as unconstitutional
and in direct violation of the by-laws and
constitution of said locals, and %that v,e
feel in no way bound by such action of
aid locals, and hereby declare our in
tention of retaining our present relations
with the Northwestern Telephone Ex
change company.
General officers of the company say
that while some of the St. Cloud men
walked out they are satisfied that the
majority will abide by the sentiment ex
pressed in the resolution.
In reply to this the strikers say that
the resolution was forced because of the
efficiency of the tieup and that they
are feeling encouraged. It is charged
that the assistant superintendent of the
company kidnapped a number of work
men arid forced the resolution in the
hope of discouraging the strikers.
Both sides in the iron molders and
coremakers' strike are waiting. The
strikers meet daily and are planning
active measures.

BROUGHT TO END
COMMISSIONER
PROUTY AD-
JOURNS RATE .HEARING.
Railroad Officials Unable to Supply
Blanks in Contract Filed with State,
and Tell How Coal Rate Is Divided-
Grain and Livestock Rates Are Con-
sidered. Testimony in the Hastings cases be
fore the interstate commerce commis
sion was finished this afternoon in St.
Paul, and Commissioner Prouty ad
journed the hearing. The complainants
have thirty-days in which to file a brief,
and the Milwaukee attornevs ten davs
for a reply. Then, if either side desires
oral argument, they will be heard by
the whole commission at Washington.
Hastings was unable to prove directly
how the joint rate on coal from Duluth
to Hastings is divided between the Mil
waukee and the line from Duluth to
the twin cities. C. P. Staples of the
state railroad commission produced the
contract between the Milwaukee and
made with the two roads when the Nor
thern Pacific acquired the St. Paul &
Duluth. It provides for a division of
the grain and coal rates on the basis
of the two locals, as stated in the con
tract, but the copy filed with the com
mission has blanks where the figures
ought to be.
Vice President Hiland of the Mil
waukee had returned to Chicago, and
the two traffic officials present today
declared their ignorance of the con
tact' teims. They could not fill in
the blanks. The books of the company
might show, but the divisions made by
the accountants did not pass thru their
sistant general freight agents of the
complainants and worried /hard, but the ffw
irtormation was not elicited.

and testified to the divisions made six|
Messrs Root and Jefferson, objected to
Loftus' testimony because it did not
piove anj'tliing as to the Northern Pa
cific, but Commissioner Prouty ruled it
was material.
Got Only 60 Cents.
Mr. Loftus testified that the St. Paul
& Duluth ordinarilygot 80 cents of
the thru rate on hard coal and 75 cents
on soft coal, but by competition from
Lake Michigan reductions irere made
necessary, and there were contracts by
which they only got 60 cents on ship
ments delivered to the Milwaukee and
the Minneapolis & St. Louis. That ba
sis obtained for two years to his knowl
edge. This 60-cent proportion applied
on shipments to Hastings, for which
$1.75 a ton was charged.
The traffic men declared this was
not material. The only question was
whether the joint rate was reasonable.
Mr. Pierpont refused to give any esti
mate as to what rate would be reason
able, but thought 60 cents w(puld not
be remunerative for, 1^0 mjles.
Commissioner r)
Dispute Among Railroad Men.
An amusing incident was the season
of trouble the Milwaukee officials had
with one of their own men, E. C. Mag
nor, joint agent at South St. Paul. He
testified that they frequently shipped
stock co Chicago jon the 25-'cent local
rate. To get the proportional rate,
shippers must show an expense bill in,
proving that the stock had originated
beyond. The shipper did not have to
prove that they were the same cattle.
This proportional rate is 20 cents, but
the witness said that shipments from
west of Aberdeen would take as low
as 14 cents for the balance of the thru
rate. This was disputed by Mr. Pier
pont, and a copy of the Milwaukee's
instructions to the agent was put in
evidence. They allowed nothing less
than the 20-cent proportional except on
western shipments with the original
waybills presented in less than twenty
four hours. This only permitted cat
tle to be unloaded to test the market,
and would not allow manipulation. The
witness admitted that he had not un
derstood this, and said he had only al
lowed two cars to go on this propor
tional rate since at South St. Paul.
Those were before he became agent, and
he was not 'sure they went over the
Milwaukee. After some discussion an
understanding was reached.
In closing the hearing Commissioner
Prouty referred briefly to the grain
rates. He said it was conceded that
because of its choice of the Duluth
route, Minneapolis was actually nearer
Chicago than Hastings is. Beyond ques
tion there is a discrimination, and
whether it is unjust* to Hastings is for
the commission to decide. The Soo's
action in protecting its intermediate
points would be looked into, and might
be material to this case.

Mr. Chute assures those who contribu

that flour was the best possible staple

Stillwater gets the same rate as the
twin cities. Milwaukee-N. P. Contract.
The contract produced by Mr. Sta
ples has interesting features. There
are two articles, and the Milwaukee
may elect which it will work under. By
the first article the Northern Pacific is
to handle all shipments from Duluth to
the twin cities under the second, how
ever, the .Milwaukee may elect to run
its own trains over the old St. Paul &
Duluth line.
The grain rate was considered briefly.
Louis Medere of Hastings testified that
the rate to Michigan points used to be
the same from Hastings as from Min
neapolis, 15% cents, but that in Novem
ber, 1904. Hastings was raised to 20%
cents, the sum of the Minneapolis rate
and the Hastings local to Minneapolis.
H. E. Pierpont declared that it was
an oversight ever to have given the in
termediate points the same rate as Min
neapolis. The 15%-cent rate was
based on the 7%-cent proportional from
Minneapolis, and was forced by compe
tition of the Soo and water routes to
Michigan. The Milwaukee gets 7%
cents as a rule, but sometimes less.
G. S. Loftus declared that the Soo
made the same rate to its intermediate
points, and that this was done purpose
ly by the Milwaukee at the instance of
a Minneapolis man having interests at
Red Wing, and of G. E. Conn, then with
the Pere Marquette, but now general
freight agent of the Soo. Mr. Root of
the Milwaukee declared that the Soo's
grain shipments from local points were
too small to be material, and this Mr.
Loftus disputed.
