•••-'.fi rumored that New York and Chl
sro were both doing export business,
in.-t no figures were obtainable. We aro
fher inclined to look for a more
1 o-sided market. Unless Europeans
me in freely, the weight of our
ii jging sales is liable to cause lower
'ces. We think purchases should be
irf.de only on good declines and that
1 flts on long wheat, should be taken
the upturns for the time being.
Oorn and oats have felt the weight
heavy liquidation all day and we
think it will continue some further.
The decline will be more the result of
an over-bought pit condition than to
nny general weakness in the general
situation. Baltimore reported for
eigners again in the market, but their
purchases were not of sufficient vol
ume to be a sustaining factor.

Breomhall'a Report.
Pusala, Sept. 10.—Weather is fine and
deliveries of grain are alow on account
of scarcity *f transportation that is
wagons, horses and laborers. In the
Don territory threshing has been de
layed by rain and wheat has lost
weight and color.
Italy—Corn crop is officially placed
at 102,000,000 bushels against 111,000,
000 last year. Wheat is moving freely
but strongly held.
Australia—Our advices from Victoria
is that crops are in a critical position
with rain wanted.
India—Seeding for the new crop will
commence next month and the British
government has appealed to this coun
try for an Increased area.
Broomhall says that Import require
ments of Italy this season will be about
io.oon.ooo bushels wheat. Last year im
ports were 43,000,000 bushels.
Chicago, Sept. 10.—With oorn crop
bushels less than the Ave
year average for the United States and
a l^ss of 152.000.00n In the seven sur
plus states, bulls think they have the
adviintasre. Another fact In their favor
Is the light reserves of old corn and the
high prices of wheat which will pre
vent any of the latter being fed on the
farms. An estimate of 300,000.000
bushels wheat for export is made by
the department of agriculture. Of this
over 50,000,000 bushels has already
been exported. HeraTd.

Open Markets.
Boston Transcript: It will be inter
esting to follow the results of the
mayor's proposed plan of relief for the
food consumers of Boston by the
establishment of an open market.
Mayor Mitchell of New York has set
the example, and at four points in the
borough of Manhattan the experiment
will be tried. At those points the
producers can bring their merchandise
and the purchasers can meet them on
the reduced terms that will be possible
by the elimination of the middlemen.
This is excellent in theory and doubt
less It can be carried to a sufficiently
large extent to work out well in prac
tice. It lends itself to good bargains
as respects fruit and vegetables
especially. Whether the meat packers
would give their aid to such a public
enterprise remains to be seen.
But unless these public markets
should be somewhat widely distributed
we do not think the retailers will And
it necessary to close up their shops.
Boston covers too much ground to he
greatly relieved by a single open mar
ket. The big market, while not a mu
nicipal institution In the proposed
sense of the term, averages lower
prices than the hundreds of detached
private sources of supply scattered a11
over the city. Yet these comparatively
small markets seem to flourish and are
all the while increasing. Of course,
thousands patronize the Faneuil Hail
food emporiums else its tenants would
not prosper to the extent that is usual
ly the case, but the question of con
venience is an important factor in
the equation of the cost of living. With
direct telephone conectlon with the
Jittle stall around the corner, the sit
uation will have to be more urgent
than it has yet become before the
householder of average means would
put forth the extra. personal effort to
deal with sources of supply several
miles away.
In the poorer sections of the city
the pushcart- men do a thriving trade.
They sell fruit and vegetables of good
quality, the vegetables especially, and
at surprising reductions compared
with the dealers who have signs over
their doors and pay rent and taxes.
Perhaps at this time It would be well
to encourage them to extend their
routes. But the limits of their wares
have serious gaps in the accustomed
food supply of the average household
er and the Inconvenience of dividing
hie trade is the protection of the man
with whom he has been accustomed
to deal. It Is hard to break down the
force of habit, though it is well that
a. thorough Investigation of conditions
should be made to the end that we may
know whether or not advantage u
be'ng taken of us In an unusual situa
A Story of General Joffra.
D. I. Leahy In The Eldorado, Kan.,
Republican: General Joffrn is In the
public eye again—this time as le chef
d'etat major in plain words, chief of
staff or generalissimo of the armies
of France.
We saw him In the public eye before
and under circumstances worth relat
One fine day—the anniversary of the
fall of the BastHe—we were "gawking"'
about the Avenue des Champs Elysees
in Paris seeing what we could see
with forty or fifty thousand other
persons. At the intersection of the
Champs Elysees with the Avenue
Montaigne a mighty shout arose.
"Vive la Fallieres" came from forty
or fifty thousand throats.
It was the president of France sur
rounded by a cavalry regiment in gor
geous trappings.
We did not know where they were
going but we followed them down the
avenue, under the Arc de Triomph
and through the Bois de Boulogne un
til we came to a race course or parade
ground of some sort, probably at
About 200,000 persons were there,
soldiers waiting to be
reviewed by Monsieur 1/ Presidente.
In course of time a rotund gentle
man on horseback rod« to the front
of the grandstand.
"Vive la JofTre! Vive TArmee!" rose
from 200,000 tongues.
The general was plainly affected and
touched his cap most gallantly In rec
ognition of the sentiment.
Turning about his mount shied and
down came le chief d* etat major in
dust ankle deep. It was like falling
in water, the splash was so great.
The idea of a French general being
thrown from his saddle on nice level
ground appealed to Frehch humor and
200,000 people laughed a mighty laugh.
The general scrambled to his feet
covered with dust and humiliation—
the most pitiable mass of human hu
mility we hav« ever seen.
Then, French like, everybody shout
ed "triste," our equivalent for "sad,"
and poor Joffre mounted his horse in
an angry mood.
We had pity for him, too, and while
we do not wish any ill forttnse to
our frle.nds, the Germans, we hope he
will make a better showing in front of
them than he did on tluit day.
Diversified farming may not be the
rule in Clay county yet, but that that
Is what farmers in this section are
striving for is demonstrated by the
things that the farmerB have brought
Into the banks of the city to show as
their products.
Hans I^arson, the prominent Kragnes
farmer has brought three ears of fine
Minnesota Dent corn into the First
State bank where It Is on show. The
kernels are sound and in regular rows
and the ears are large. Mr. Larson
picked the three ears at random, he
says, and they look exceptionally fine
Henry Schroeder, the Sabin "potato
king," has a bottle of early oats at the
First National bank. Oats, generally
speaking, are poor this year but au
thorities say Mr. Schroeder's oats
would make a fine showing even in a
good year. There were many Inter
ested people who examined these oats
and a bottle of fine wheat in the First
National bank lobby this morning.
At the Moorhead National bank. Otto
Bdllng, who lives three miles south of
Moorhead, has some of the finest Tri
umph potatoes on show ever seen in
the city. They are exceptionally
smooth and large. He has shipped two
cars of this variety already to south
ern markets. The N. J. Olsen company
has on show some large ears of Min
nesota Dent No. 13, fully cured. Charles
Brendemuhl Is responsible for the big
Hiberian apples and Arthur Souers
brought in abranch loaded with ripe
crab apples. W. J. Bodkin has on dis
play several specimens nf a new var
iety of corn, which he calls Queen of
the North. This is a white corn, a
sturdy variety adapted to the needs of
Clay county, Mr. Bodkin says.
Judge Wade had a busy time in po
lice court this morning. In addition to
the perennial aggregation of men ar
raigned on charges of being drunk and
vagrant, two men were found guilty of
serious offenses and sent to the county
Jail for long terms.
Bruno Welske appeared In court and
testified against Tony Matoshik, saying
Matoshlk had attacked him with a
knife last night and cut him severely
about the shoulders. Judge Wade
found Matoshik guilty and sent him to
the county Jail for sixty days.
Fred Olson, arraigned on the charge
of robbery, got the limit of three
months in the county jail. Olson rob
bed Peter Norren, while the latter was
asleep. He took a 21-jewel watch from
one of his pockets but, not satis
fled with this, he drew a knife and
proceeded to cut the sleeping man's
clO'thes to pieces in the hope of finding
more money hidden away In some un
likely spot. Norren got. his watch back.
Work on Basement Will Start This
Week and Big Boilers Will Be
Placed on Arrival.
Work will begin this week on the

tion of the new central heating plant
proper to the Moorhead Plumbing &
Heating Co. The contract is for $5,
200 and calls for two large boilers and

exhibits of farm products at the dif
ferent hanks.
Eaoji farmer has brought into town
to show that product of which he is
proudest. The bankers say that the
fact that these products are not all

this fact shows the trend of farming In
Clay county.

W#w York world: Vice Prfs!«mt
Marshall's statement that "the demo
cratic party will have only one can
didate for president in 1916 and his
name happens to be Woodrow Wil
son" will excite no controversy. Nor
will anybody question Mr. Marshall's
assertion that the president "will have
the enthusiastic, unqualified and unit
ed support of his party."
The vice president has said what
is in everybody's mind.
There is no democrat anywhere who
now wants to be known as an antl
Wllson democrat There are few re
publicans who are eager to pose as
opponents of the president except on
abstract Issues of party principle. Mr.
Wilson's conquest of public opinion is
a moral victory for which there is no
parallel in American politics.
It required the greatest war of mod
ern times to reveal the American peo
ple to themselves, but when the rev
elation came, it was instantaneous.
The ideals of the "schoolmaster" sud
denly stand forth above the smoke of
battle as the commanding Ideals of
democracy throughout the world.
Unless a radical change takes place
In the mind and purposes of the Amer
ican people during the next two years.
Wood row Wilson's re-election is hard
ly more in doubt than his renomina
New York Times: Nobody can say
how long the European war will last,
and guessing is not profitable, but It
is a fierce and cruel war, and all the
countries Involved In it, as well as
their nearest neighbors, will be sadly
disordered for many months, If not
years, to come. American citizens of
good judgment who are still in Europe
will do well to return without any
needless delay, unless they intend to
remain abroad until the war is over,
and take all the consequences, for the
sake of private or business interests.
The obstacles in the way of expedi
tions and comfortable travel homd
ward are nothing now In comparison
with what they may be later.
One impediment to travel which has
not yet been thought of is the chance
of retention in giiarantine. There are
no very alarming reports of conta
gious diseases as yet in the warring
countries, but the danger of them nat
urally increases every day the war
laste. Apart from the fact that ex
cited persons who are forced to fore
go many of the comfort^ they have
been accustomed to, to eat such food
as they can get, often improperly
cooked, are particularly subject to in
fection, it must be borne in mind that
people not afflicted with disease find
guarantine delays irksome. We should
not care to have repeated in this har
bor the effects of the cholera scare of
the 90s, when Long Islanders protested
so violently against the establishment
of quarantine shelters on the beaches
off their coasts and passengers on an
infected liner were subjected to many
Yet there is danger, if our compa
triots who Intend to come home do not
return promptly, that such experi
ences will be repeated here on a very
large scale. The need of avoiding fur
ther delay in the return to these shores
of all our compatriots who are not per
manently dweling in Europe, is. there
fore, obvious. Every facility for their
expeditions transportation should be
afforded, especially in the case of
those who are destitute or short of
funds, and who for that reason would
be more quickly oposed to quarantine.
Mr. Hoover, chairman of the American
committee in London, urges his compa
triots to return home quickly for the
sake of the foreign communities in
which their presence is burdensome.
There is ample reason why they should
mn jio baste for their own sakes.
Richard Harding Davis I* All That and
a Real Man.
Kansas City Star: Richard Harding
Davis is the real thing. His dispatches
from the seat of war not only have
been great pieces of writing. They
have shown a man who conducted hlm
eelf decently and courageously in mat.
ters affecting his personal safety. The
account printed this morning Is a
straightforward narrative of events. It
shows Davis taking chances by going
bevond the limits of his pass, when he
knew that the chances were serious. Tt
shows him accepting the outcome, with
nerve and resourcefulness when the
outcome seemed to be a spy's fate.
It will be recalled that when he went
to Vera Cruz with the Furreton expedi
tion he took chances in the same way
br pushing through to the city of Mex
ico. He knew he nvighit be seized and
shot. Officers under th© excitement of
war have a way of shooting first and
investigating later. But his instinct as
a correspondent took him where the
news was.
Mr. Davie is no hot-headed young
chap with a reputation to make. He
is a man of middle age, with all sorts
of experiences and with a great reputa
tion as a writer. It might naturally be
expected that a man of that seasoned
sort would leave the taking of chances
in the line of duty to the young fel
lows. Because he isn't content to do
that he Is a great reporter—and a real

Hartford, Conn., Sept. 10.-—Despite
the fact that there ^yere only tiro
classes on the card, the third day of
the Grand Circuit at Charter Oak patk
developed the finest racing and tliiR
most exciting finishes thus far.
The Capital City stake for'2:08 trot
ters went to Newzell ,bUt it required
six heats. Andrews won easily with
Newzell In the first two. but tired in
the third and Atlantic Express came
first, under the wire while In the fourth
Dickerman'a horse, in a driving finish,
just failed by a head to beat out Oajt
dale. Atlantic Express took the fifth,
and Newzell, after resting up for three
heats, took the lead In the sixth and
won easily when Atlantic Express
broke in the stretch, Oakdale being
distanced and Newzell winning flfilt
and third money.
The 2:16 pace was won by Zaida in
straight heats, both of th* drst two
finishes being close.',
New Ydrk, Sept. 10.—Nearly 4l»Jin
tries have been received for the annual
amateur athletic union track and field
championships to be held at Baltimojpfc
on Friday and Saturday.
The junior championships to be rttk
off on Friday have drawn 194 entries
and the senior title 105 entries. Clultfs
from all parts of th»5 country are re
ported, although the local organiza
tions lead in both the number of at&*
letes and the entries made. -J
The. New York A. C. has thirty-eight
junior and forty senior entries ftS
team consisting of thirty-six meii.
The New York Irish-American A. Oi
will send Torty-two men with twenty
eight entries in the junior and fortjr
two in the senior games. The Bostcm
A. A. has forty-one entries the Chi
cago A. A. 17 Illinois A. C. of Chicago
27 St. Louis A. A. 6. and the Long
Island A. C. of Brooklyn 7. The clubto
of the middle Atlantic association haW»
made thirty entries and the southern
association 6.
The entry list contains the names of
almost all the prominent American
athletes now In training. Among those
who wilt compete for track and field
titles are "Ted" Meredith, Romer
Baker, Dave SaMwell and Mel Sfce|*.
Football work has increased In popjlf'
larlty at the high school as can be
from the fact that forty men have an
swered the call for gridiron work This
number greatly exceeds the number of
candidates of last year. Coach Rob
bins will have the support.of the stud
ent body in athletics this year as much
Interest Is being shown.
Ted Childers. the captain-elect, did
not return to school this year and as
yet no successor has been elected. This
honor will probably fall to Sullivan
who ha* made a hit with the local fol
lowers of the rport on account, of his
aggressive playing. Boise ana Murray,
favorites of la*t year are also eligible
for the captaincy.
A mass meeting was held at^the higlt
school this afternoon when the high
school yells and songs were participat
ed in with much enthusiasm. Never be
fore did such enthusiasm prevail
early In the year. With such spirit
hind the Purple and the White wa#
rlors, Fargo high school should hav*{*
winning combination.
