The friend told the Salvation army lassio and she went before Police Judge Ry an, where she lodged a complaint, charging Hoimberg with surety of the peace. The warrant was given to Dep uty Sheriff Bingham, who soon found hi* man and after placing the hand cuffs on him, remembering the young man's former actions, took him to the city jail. Mr. Bingham said that the girl appeared to be very much fright ened and actually was afi-aid to go on the streets so that Hoimberg could be pointed out, for at the time he did not know that he had handled the man before.

Alluding to the new commodity rati which has been published and ordered to go into effect June 3, The Moorhead News of Tuesday says: 'Back in the eighties, all jobbing business was at a great disadvantage in noi thorn Minnesota. As the coun try grew, the railroad companies rec ognized the justice of so adjusting "in rates as to allow natural distributing centers in the north to do a jobbing business, and for this purpose issued commodity tariffs allowing a different ial under the fifth class rate of 3iL. cents per 100 pounds on certain heaw ai tides, named in the present order of the commission. This was done by th* railroads without any order from th. commission. Later, the commission established distributing rates out of these country terminals the same a were enjoyed by the twin cities and Duluth. In the commissioners' read justment and reduction of the nier handlse rates, the rate per ton per nile, decreases as the distance in •reases. Under this tariff, the country jobber would ship his merchandise in urloads in fifth class and distribute at fourth class, the same as the terminals. large "Applying these rates, it was found that the fifth class rate into and th fourth ela*« rate out of the country terminals was considerably higher than th fourth class rate from the twin cities or DUluth to the stations wher" the g&ods'were Jsold.' Th© commission realized this when hey matle their merchandise tariff and in a note Said if the railroad themselvei did not make an equitabl rate so as to preserve the relative ondltions of the country and city ter minals, the commission would under take to do so. This the commission has done by making a 3 cent differ ential under fifth class, to the country terminals. '•Nothing more has been done than to put these country points on an equal basis, so far as railroad rates are concerned, thus allowing them to com pete with the large cities, but our friends from Duluth and the twin cities would stifle all competition and drive every outside Minnesota and Dakota bber out of business and appropriate to themselves ail the wholesale busi ness of the northwest. 'The people of the north are proud St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth, md hope they may continue to grow And prosper. In their prosperity, they should not, however, look at this ques tion altogether from a selfish stand point, but concede us the right to live.'
