Freight Discrimination.
Moorhead News: The News has
had something to say heretofore in
regard to railroad discrimination
against the region north and west
of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and
the tremendous odds against which
that region has contended and must
contend for development, on ac
count of such unjust discrimination.
It is a tremendous odds and none
but a country remarkably rich and
fertile in natural productions could
pretend to hold out under it. It is
almost beyond reason that the rail
roads should consider it to their in
terest in the long run to continue
such a practice. One would suppose
that they would, see that a policy on
their part which would encourage
the settlement and development of
this empire would be the policy that
would inure the most largely to
their gain. They seem to proceed
upon the theory that they have the
country completely under their con
trol and at their mercy now and can
by the tremendouB powers which
.they can wield, beat off all aspirants
for a division of such control.
We will here cite a few actual
shipments to Moorhead, which will
illustrate the discrimination that
the railroads operating lines here
parctice against this city and Fargo
as well as all the cities and towns of
the region referred to,'are in the
same degree sufferers:
The freight paid on a car load of
merchandise weighing 26,000 pounds
from Minneapolis to Moorhead, was
$109.2i) on the same car load from
Chicago to Minneapolis it was, un
der the 5 cent rate that has been in
force until to-day, $13.00 and the
regular rate is $28.00, in the one
case about 8£ times as great, and
the other about 4 times, and allow
ing for distance, will make the
freight 17 times and 8 times greater.
In another case of smaller shipment
a consignment of goods shipped
from Chicago, weighing 370 pounds,
the freight charge from Chicago to
St. Paul was 37 cents, while from
St. Paul, to Moorhead' it was 38.70: or
ten times as great, and allowing for
distance tweaty.times as great.
S'/v «.!
Memorial Day.
Decoration Day, Saturday next,
will be observed at Wahpeton in a
most approved manner. Sumner
post will meet at its hall at 9 a. m.
and dispatch a committee to deco
rate yie graves of soldiers in this
section. And at 1:30 the post will
leave the roller rink, marching to
the (ftrner of Fifth street and Dako
ta afenue, where they will be met
oy ||ie Odd Fellows, thence up
Dakota ave. to Sixth street, along
latter to Wisconsin ave., down lat
ter tt Fourth street, where the fire
men«will join the procession, thence
along Fourth street to Pembina
ave.k along latter to school-house
wheffe the school children will join
the "procession, thence to First
street, along latter to Dakota ave.,
thence up to Second street, along
latter to Bridge street, thence to
Third and back to Dakota ave. and
the rink, where appropriate exer
cises will be held, Rev. Mr. Troy
delivering the memorial address, as
sisted by Rev. Messrs. Barnes and
Flack. And Captain Gregg will re
ctte a poem, entitled "The Nation's
ijead." The music will be conduct
ed by Prof. Crocker, a feature of
which will be the_singing of Amer
ica by the entire audience with a
full band accompaniment. A pe
tition has been circulated asking
•the business men of the city to
close two hours in the afternoon,
from two to four, and has been al
most entirely signed. Sunday fol
lowing, a committee from Sumner
Post will visit Abercrombie and
join in the exercises there and as
sist in the decration of graves of
soldiers at that place. The remain
ing members of the post will attend
the Episcopal church here in the
morning, and the Congregational
church in the evening, in full uni
form, thus fitly closing memorial
season at Wahpeton.
A Wide-awake Newspaper.
Our wide-awake St. Paul contem
porary, the Globe, scoopeed the bal
ance of the universe yesterday
morning on the news of Riel's cap
ture. By a fortunate accident a
form was "pied," and while waiting
for the damage to be repaired a be
lated special was received announc
ing the surrender of the great rebel.
Thus the paper was two hours late
but contained the only news of the
capture. It was the luckiest "pi"
on record.—[Sunday's Minneapolis
Tribune.
This compliment to the Globe's
enterprise from its only rival in
Northwestern journalism is as
graceful as it is honest, yet our
Minneapolis contemporary is mis
taken as to the causes which put
the Globe ahead of all the press in
the country in announcing Rial's
capture. There was no "pi" or ac
cident of any kind in this office, and
that edition of the paper was not
later than ordinary. The Globe has
a contract with the public to fur
nish all the latest and most authen
tic news. With scrupulous fidelity
to our obligation we spare neither
pains nor expense to place ourselves
in possession of the news from all
quarters of the earth. To this end
we employ none but thoroughly re
liable correspondents, who are al
ways on the alert to gather facts,
and who lose no time in communi
cating to this office all the informa
tion they obtain from authentic
sources, from which we cull that
which will interest the people, and
thus we are enabled to give to our
readers not only the best, spiciest,
and newsiest paper in the north
west, but one that is not surpassed
by the metropolitan journals of the
East. It is true that in order to
protect ourselves from the piratical
practices of less enterprising jour
nalism in our own midst, which is
disposed to utilize our enterprise for
its own benefit by appropriating our
news and transferring it to its own
columns and imposing it upon its
readers as the result of its own ef
forts, we are sometimes compelled
to hold back our issue to as late an
hour in the morning as is possible
to have the paper delivered to our
patrons on schedule time. And yet
not one of the many thousands who
patronize the Globe ever fails to
find it laid on his doorstep at an
early hour in the morning, and as he
sips his breakfast cup of coffee can
glean from its columns news of
what is transpiring in all parts of
the world, both at hpme and abroad,
and can read curt and pithy com
ments'on all matters of public inter
est. The Globe is*a newspaper.—
