SUB-TEEASUEY Df BTJSSIA.
Consul General Crawford at St. Peters
burg, has transmitted to the department
of state an Important report upon
the details and workings of a system
now in practice In Russia (resembling cer
tain plans incorporated in the platform
of the Farmers' Alliance in this country)
of making advances on farmers' grain
stored in warehouses or delivered to of
ficials of the railways of the country.
The salient points of the system briefly
stated, are as follows:
Advances on grain may be made by
any railway company on account of the
Imperial bank of Russia, authorized by
the minister of finance. They must not
exceed 60 per cent, of the value of the
grain at the nearest market place, except
in cases of loans for six weeks or less,
when an 80 per cent advance may be ob
tained. The usual Interest is 6 per
cent payable in advance, with further
small charges on account of a sinking
fund and commissions to railroads.
Loans to range from six months to one
year, and if not repaid at their explra
tion, the grain to be sold by the railroad
company at auction. Grain may also be
sold if in danger of deterioration.
This scheme went into effect June 14,
1888, and at the present day is generally
adopted thcoughout the country and
business is carried on under it on a very
MI have also to add that the scheme
gives great satisfaction to farmers, very
many of whom declare it has been an es
sential feature of successful farming in
The Medal of Superiority.
This may be of interest to you to know
that the Monarch Standard Scales have
been awarded the "medal of superiority"
at the 60th annua fair of the American
Institute In New York City. This is the
highest award ever made on scales in the
United States, and was awarded against
the strongest competition. This verifies
the fact of its merit and superiority and
that the "Monarch" Is king without an
equal. During the past three yaara the
"Monarch" has been subjected to the
the severest tests and most critical ex
aminations by leading mechanics and
scientific experts in the United States
and has been proved tho scale of the age,
Also has taken the highest awards in all
contests to date from Texas to New York
including special diploma at New Jersey
state agricultural fair, 1891.
We are prepared to verify these state
ments and all reports to the contrary are
malicious and ungrounded.
Thanking you for all favors and hoping
our business relations will be as con
genial as in the past
We are very truly yours,
