THE MARKET REPORT.
Edwards, Woow Co., report: The •extreme range of fluctuations today was within half a cent, and the close practically at last night's figures, with market steady and very dull. The trade accepted reports of disappointing yield, with allowances, as a result widely advertised stories yields that would not average ten bushels was nul lified in large measure. Frost in North Dakota and Red Viver Valley was generally considered as a favor able factor. It is said that with con tinuance of present weather for a week, that everything possible to har vest in the northwest will be saved. Rain in some parts of Minnesota may have the effect of slackening the move ment of spring wheat to market, but at best, bad weather can only affect the situation by delaying the marketing of wheat. Broomhall's crop summary in dicates that conditions abroad arc gen erally fairly satisfactory. Bradstreet's world's visible supply ittcreased 451,000 bushels, compared with 940,000 bushels increase last week and .2.869,000 bushels last year. While the world's visible increased slightly, the domestic visible east of Rockies decreased 2,049,00 bushels, in dicating that the movement has not been sufficient to bring domestic con ditions up to normal. Primary re ceipts 858,000 bushels about same as last year. Shipments 328,000, half as much as on the same day last year. Clear ances only 14,000 bushels. While the crop has been ample, the movement so far has been disappointing. This may be accounted for in several ways, chief among which arc the weather, com parative prices, and slackening demand abroad. With gootj^ weather, a free movement is looked for in the immedi ate future, and on legitimate lines low er price's may be expected. C. E. WHEELER I CO. grain and Stock Brokers •brtoa Heck. Fargo, N.

ON NORTHERN PACIFIC An Advance Made la Wages for the Men of the Heavier Engines and Others to Be Arranged at a Conference. $ti Later Paul, Sept. 12.—After negotiating with the officials of the Northern Pacific road for over a month, a representative committee of the locomotive firemen of the line has at last received a proposi tion for a new schedule of wages and al lowances, which will probably be ac cepted. No contract will be entered into until Oct. i, when David Van Alstyne mechanical superintendent of the North ern Pacific, will return to St. Paul. The committee from the firemen's or ganization opened negotiations with the Northern Pacific officials about the same time that the telegraph operators began their ill-fated set-to with the road. When the telegraphers' strike was called, the railroad officials asked for further time before further considering the desires of the firemen. To this the firemen readily assented, and the matter has been hanging fire ever since. All this time the representative com mittee of the firemen with H. B. Smith, its chairman, and Richard Woods, its secretary, have been waiting in St. Paul. Saturday afternoon the committee re ceived definite word from the Northern Pacific as to what the road would agree to, and the committee left Saturday evening with an understanding that it reassemble in St. Paul Oct i to draft the written agreement. The association on the Northern Pa fic has 749 firemen members, besides 250 men who are now engineers. The firemen's association asked to have it understood in future negotiations with the roads, that the firemen's committee would in all things also represent the 250 engineers in their association. To this the Northern Pacific now agrees. The second matter of importance was the rearrangement of a schedule of wages. The schedule for the payment of firemen is always arranged on a wheel basis and the weight of the en gines. The road has signified its will ingness to increase the pay of the fire men on the heavier and larger class of locomotives. The schedule for fire men on the lighter class of locomotives is still to be adjusted. The firemen,! however, consider they have won a vic tory in securing an advance in the heavy engine class, because this is the most important, and a class which is constantly increasing in size, diminish ing the numbers in the other classes. "1 do not feel at liberty to say how much increase the Northern Pacific of fers," said Secretary Wood, "but I can state that it is satisfactory to us." $60,poo COULDN'T CONVICT HIM. Tacoma, Sept. ..... .70^ .67 ilWOiMi 1 to 1.0SH 12.—After the gov ernment had spent $60,000 in court ex penses and incidentals, Harry Owens was declared not guilty of murdering Carl Christianson on Forty Mile River in October, 1901. Nearly four years ago Owens was tried for stab bing Christianson to death. The trial took place at Eagle. The jury render ed a verdict of murder in the second degree and Owens was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison. A new trial was allowed by the Appelate Court and the witnesses for the trial just ended were brought from all parts of the United States and Alaska. Owens pleaded self-defense, claiming he had to fight a duel with Christian son over a dispute about dried fruit worth $2.50. In the duel, which was fought with knives, Christianson re ceived sixteen stabs. RUSSIAN UKASE E ^0R UNIVERSITIES St. Petersburg, Sept. 12.—An im perial ukase is published this morn ing granting a liberal measure of autonomy to the universities pending the elaboratiorf of permanent regula tions along the same lines. This is considered here as insuring the open ing of the universities Sept. 14 and the resumption of the educational life of Russia which has been at a stand still with all students and professors in the higher schools on strike since February. The ukase places the election of rec tors and deans of the universities, who have hitherto been appointed by the minister of education and were regard ed as representative of the hated beauracy class, in the hands of the university professors, thereby making these officials truly representatives of university life. The duty of seeing that academy life follows normal and orderly course is entrusted by the ukase to professional councils, to which has been confided jurisdiction over offenses by students. University inspectors who formerly were considered as a sort of secret po lice are now responsible to the rectors and not to the ministry and a cause of many misunderstandings between the universities and the authorities has thereby been removed. The ukase fails to give the right of assembly or to grant the other poli tical demands for which the students have been agitating, but the placing of the government of the universities in the hands of the professors meets the principal grievance of the students in regard to purely academic condi tions, as the faculties and students are thoroughly in sympathy with each oth er because of their common efforts to remedy the grievances, Senator Tillman of North Carolina is making effort to prevent death sentence being passed upon the state liquor dis pensary system, which was established largely through his efforts. The people are becoming tired of the plan, but to have it knocked out would be a sad blow to the senator's prestige and a triumph for bis many enemies. Qtsrf r:-' V mm* THB FAHOO FOETTM AND DAILY BEPtJBLICAW, TUESDAY SVENtNG, Gossip From the National Capit K '^'iC^respotirten^ by Wililliam Wolff StfiftV. Washington, D. C., Sept. 8.—Will it be the paring knife or the cleaver that will be used by the next congress, or will either be operated? This is the question that is now agitating the pub lic mind more or less, as some means must be found to make receipts and ex penditures come nearer an equality. The same question has been up before other congresses and sometimes the cleaver has been used and at other times the paring knife, but whichever it iyas 4 the good results only lasted for a brief space and then expenditures would once more begin to creep up. Except on a few extraordinary occasions ever sincc the war between the states the receipts have been in excess of the expenditures and the government more than once has had trobule to find some way by which to dispose of the surplus. I do not re call who it was that first'gave utterance to the trite saying that it is easier to handle a surplus than a deficit, but who ever he was he stumbled into a maxim in political economy that may cause the approaching congress to deliberate very seriously. Usually a republican administration has had a surplus to deal with and they have shown a fair degree of ability in dealing with a congested treasury, but they must now face the other* end of the proposition and it is likely to be a very serious problem, for the best treasury experts now estimate that the deficit for the current fiscal year will .be fully $50,000,000. The working balance at present is about $110,000,000. It is nec essary to carry a very latge working balance and unless something is done to either increase the revenue or cut down expenditures the treasury will find itself crowding dangerously close to the reserve. The expenditures on account of the Panama Canal have been very large, and will likely continife large, but it is expected that when congress mets there will he some canal legisla tion that will work to the benefit* of the treasury. The Spooner bill provid ed for the issuance of $130,000,000 canal bonds and it is expected that congress will early in the session authorize the use of the bonds as a basis for national bank circulation and that will cause a demand for the bonds. When those are sold the drain for canal purposes on the treasury will cease. Congress may pro vide that the treasury shall be reim bursed for its outlay out of the proceeds of the bonds, but if that is done the re lief will only be temporary unless an other bond issue is provided for as no one expects the canal to be built on anything like the figures given, when the purchase was made. The fact remains that the two ends must be brought nearer together or the administration will find itself treading dangerously close to the reserve and that will cause embarrassment when a new congress, is to be chosen. How to bring the two' ends together is the prob lem and about as many solutions have been offered as there are members of congress and newspaper correspondents in Washington. It may be said that congress is divided into two camps— one for increasing the revenues, the othfcr for reduction of expenditures, and each of these two camps are subdivided into half a dozen or more factious. "Revise the tariff" says one re-enact the war taxes says another, place a tax on coffee cries a third, and he ufges such a tax would be good for our flew possessions as it would encourage the cultivation of coffee in Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Philippines. In opposi tion to this the "'poor man's coffee pot" is pointed to. Still another wing of the financial doctors advocate an increase of the tax on beer and alcoholic stimul lants but they will be met by a delega tion urging that this tax ought to be re duced, and if reduced it will actually result in an increase of revenue as there would be a greater demand for spirits in the arts and sciences. Representative McClarv of Minnesota, who has been spoken of as a probable successor to Mr. Hemenway as chair man of the committee on appropriations is reported as being decidedly in favor of the opposition to tax coffee. On the question of increasing the revenues he summarizes the various plans proposed as follows: 1. Revise the tariff in such a way as to reduce the duties on some articles and thereby cause their importa tion, resulting in a larger customs in come for the government."' 2. The im position of taxes 011 bank cjiecks, stocks, bonds, deeds, mortgages, patent medi cines, etc., as was done during the Span ish war. 3. Additional tajces upon to bacco, whiskey, beer, etc. 4. Tax 011 coffee." He says the first proposition can hard ly be considered, and only as a last re sort the second and third he is not proposed to favor, but thinks the fourth would be a great thing for the country. It is reported that Speaker Cannon and Secretary Shaw are both opposed to any legislation looking toward increas ing the revenue on the ground that it would unsettlebusinessand stop the era of prosperity. It is also said that Sen ator Hemenway has joined this side and is now an acknowledged standpat ter. If not in favor of increasing reve nue they must favor a reduction of ex penditures, but right there is a snag for them. To bring the expenditures down to the revenue the cleaver will have to be used and used with force: the paring knife will not do. Will the cleaver be put in operation? The army, the navy, the river and harbor and pub lic building advocates will object even to the paring knife and will thev not revolt if the cleaver is substituted? All this, with railroad rate and ship sub sidy legislation will make merry times during the next session. Representative McCleary talka out very plainly on the tariff question. He opposes revision of the tariff and in veighs against the idea of reciprocity as advocated by the men who recently gathered in Chicago to discuss that sub ject. Among many other interesting things Mr. McCleary, always an enter taining talker said, was thisr "I am in favor of the reciprocity of James G. Blaine, a reciprocity on non-competing products. I am not in* favor of a reci procity that gives up any part of ouf market in the hopes of getting other markets. Reciprocity 011 competing products will not be provided during the life of the next congress. The reciproc k S V v V$'i' 11 rtmifl11 +1 I' ity movement now going on in the United States has done a vast deal of harm. In the first place it is a self ish move, inspired primarily by a few men who desire to gain something there by. Who can point out to me a man crying for reciprocity who hopes to have the duty lowered on his product? There is not a single argument advanced by the leaders of this movement that is not founded on democratic doctrine. When it is for the best interest of the American people to revise the tariff, let it be revised, but I do not beliere that time has' conie." There are indications of tlie usual free for all fight in the Eleventh Indiana Congressional District. It is a rare day indeed when the republicans of that neck of the Hoosier woods cannot stir up an exciting campaign and if present indications can be relied upon the sit uation does not promise good for the chances of Congressman Fred K. Lan dis who is. now serving his second term. Mr. Landis, who is a brother of ^Charley" Landis, one of the most pop luar men in the house, has proven him self a hard working member and if permitted to remain in the house long enough to get thoroughly acquainted with the methods through which results are achieved he would be a valuable niember for his constituents. Accord ing to information drifting into Wash ington there seems to be trouble in store for him. Jay Wood Wilson of Marion a retired capitalist 'and one of the best known men in the state has about made up his mind to contest for congressional honors. Dr. Chas. H. Good of Huntington County, is another who is actively arranging his affairs so as to attempt to wrest the nomination from the incumbent.. Another possible candidate is John H. Hadley of Gas City. There is no trouble whatever in getting candidates'for the nominating convention in the old eleventh and the fact that gossip points to opposition is sufficient to raise tire danger signpost for Mr. Landis. A :new candidate for senatorial honors in South Dakota has come up out of the Black Hills for the western section of that state. This candidate is Repre sentative Eben Weaver Martin who dur ing the four years he has served in the house has made many friends and has proven himself to be a useful and pains taking member. It is now announced from Deadwood, the home of Dr. Mar tin, that lie will not be a candidate for renomination to the sixtieth congress as he intends to make a fight for the senate to succeed Senator Gamble whose term expires in 1907. In the distribu tion of congressional favors some years ago when South Dakota was new to the union the western section of the stpt? was lost in the shuffle. It has ever since been crying out for its own. Iir fliesc later days it has waxed pros perous and that section of the state is now teeming with business. Eben Mar tin seems to be its candidate. An ag gressive delegation will attend the state convention asking that it endorse the candidacy of Mr. Martin, a metho.d for choosing senators upon which Nebraska entared in 1904. Eben Martin is a fine typ£ of western life. He is an Iowan by birth and if he reaches the senate in'place of Robert J. Gamble will be another illustration of the native sons of the trans-Mississippi region coming intfo political honors that up to a few years ago were enjoyed by almost ex clu|ively 'those who had gone thither fr^jn the eastern portions of the coun try. NO DINNER UNLESS PAY*UP. Santa Cruz, Sept. 12.—A novel method of raising money for religious purposes was sprung on the Chris tian conference in progress at Cor corans Lagoon, near this city, on Sunday. The northern conference or ganization has just built a large house on the camp grounds for the use of the commissary at a .cost of $390. At the commencement of the day's pro ceedings Presiding Elder Archibald announced that neither the sermon which was to be preached by Elder Carpenter of Santa Clara, nor the'din ner which was to. .follow would be pro ceeded with, until the $390 was raised. Three collections Were taken up, and with the last collection $394 was se cured in pledges, and cash contribu tions. Elder Archibald then announc ed that the day's ibusin6s% would pro ceed. SEPTEMBER W •V -n 'i WWWW ENRAGED FARMER KILLS FATHER-IN-LAW Crookston, Minn., Sept. iz-^-As the result of blows over his head with a pitchfork handle in the hands of his son-in-law, Fred Wilde, John Kins mafnn died Sunday morning at the Wilde farm in Parnell Township. Wilde was cutting grain near the house when his horses mired. He was pounding the animals with a pitchfork when his father-in-law remonstrated with him and was viciously attacked. Being 60 years old, ruptured in two placfes and a cripple, the old man could not defend himself. He was felled by the blows, but managed to stagger to the house, where he washed the blood off in a water trough, later going to his room upstairs, assisted t»y his daughter. The attack was at. 5 o'clock in the afternoon and death, came eight hours later. The old man suffered in tensely, but no doctor was called, Mrs. Wilde being in mortal fear of her.lius band's wrath. She was alone with her fathier when he died and, creeping intcf the bedroom of Miss Agnes Montague of this city, who was teaching, the district school there, the two women kept the fearful virgil till daybreak when they stole from the house and fled to a neighbor's and gave the alarm. Wilde was not notified wjjen Kins mann died, the two women fearing he would kill them also to hide his crime. Coroner Chesternjan is holding an inquest and'Wilde-is under, arrest. Mrs. Wilde is almost crazed and insists that the affair is all her fault, as she,should not have had her father there. Kins mann had been living with them ior six yeaVs and was to have been sent^bapk to Germany to join his Wife 'ibisrfal}. Wilde owed him some motley, but the amount is not known. There has been intense fueling' as a, result of the affair, but Wilde'does ilot seem to^ realize his^ awful- position. He regards the killing as an accident of no great moment. RUSSIAN NAVAL PROGRAMME. St. Petersburg, SejSt. 12.—No Orders have yet been given for the return home of the interned warships in ac cordance with the terms of the peace treaty. The admiralty can do nothing until notified of the telegraphic ex change of ratifications. When that oc curs the vessels in conditions to hoist the homeward bound pennant will start for the Baltic or Vladivostock under their own steam and with their own crews as the period of internment has been used to repair all the damages sustained in the battle of Aug. 10 and at the battle of the Sea of Japan. It is absolutely incorrect to say that ,any steps have yet been taken towards the execution of, the new nayal,.pro, grannne, except the orders given ior tlje ,construction of torpedo boats and for a 15,000 ton cruiser in England.
