HIS' CtUBSiSHOW Farmers clubs in the Northwest are showing much interest in the dispute between railroads and their trainmen over the wage question. Reports that a strike may he the possible outcome have stirred them to take action that will prevent such a calamity. Arbitaration as the right method of settling the existing controversy ap peals to all farmers and businessmen who ask that both sides accept a plan. That a strike, should differences be tween the railroads and their employ es not otherwise be adjusted, would be disastrous, is the opinion generally expressed. It would probably occur at a season when the marketing of crops would be seriously curtailed. This is a situation farmers are now trying to avert. Many commercial clubs have al ready passed resolutions urging rail way managers and brotherhood lead ers to submit their cases to an arbi trating tribunal. Farmers are, in sev eral cases, promising active co-oper ation to insure ?. settlement by this method. EXTENSION BY TELEPHONE CO. Max. X. D., March 27.—At the ad journed meeting of the Pleasant Val ley Telephone company the question of selling additional stock and build ing new lines south and west from Max was taken up.

The actual hook value of the Pleasant Valley Telephone company stock at present is $S." a share, but it was agreed to sell the stock for the new line at $•-. The value of the stock has been increased by the toll line between this place and Sa-.vyer. This line in the past few years has paid for the maintenance of the line, which or dinarily would amount to from $10 to $12JT0 per telephone, and in addition has paid a good dividend on the stock.
