Congested Condition of Traffic
During Busy Season Brings
Last evening in his talk before the
Y. M. C. A. Cnief Dispatcher Maxwell
of the Dakota division of the Great
Northern, gave some interesting in
formation as: to the number of trains
run through Grand Forks in response
to several questions from his audi
Mr. Maxwell said that the Dakota
division had thirty-t^o passenger
trains daily and eighteen regular
freights. Take the extra trains run,
Mr. Maxwell placed the number of
trains run by the division daily for
the year at seventy. This is under
normal conditions. The miles of
trackage in the division is 595.
Last fall during the busy season,
the number of trains went as high as
ninety-eight daily. At one time there
were nineteen trains west from Grand
Forks for a distance where there
were only fourteen switches. To re
lieve the congested condition, a num
ber of trains were backed up the
Sarles-Lakota branch and held until
the track was opened so that the
switches equalled the trains.
This volume of traffic gives some
idea of how large Is the business of
Grand Forks and Its territory. When
't is considered that the Great North
ern runs most of its freights about a
mile long, the number of cars handled
daily is a matter of amazement.
NOTES FROM WASHINGTON.
Gossip of the Capitol Written fer
The Evening Times.'
Washington, Feb. 15.—Alexander
McDowell, clerk of the ho.use of rep
resentatives, has asked the house and
senate for an appropriation of $1,500
wherewith to pay the cost of removing
from the capitol. to the library'of con
gress documents no longer needed by
the members of the two houses. That
is the amount given him a litt.le more
than a year ago. He needs Another
appropriation because by the time he
got rid of the mass of useless docu
ments then on hand there had been
another -accumulation just as large.
It looks now as if there would have to
be an annual appropriation of about
that amount of money for that pur
No one has any idea of how much
paper and ink the government uses
for the publication of absolutely use
less information until some it»m like
that comes along to attract attention
to the lavish waste of money for print
ers' ink. In the case of the govern
ment it takes several barrels of ink
to cause even a little flutter of ihe
thinking apparatus of the miUlonsv A
drop of Ink to make millions think is
a very nice way of calling attention to
the good works men have got out wl
white paper and black ink,-but the
man who said it never had the average
government publication In mind.
Speaking of that appropriation to
carry useless documents from the cap
itol to the library made Representative
J. Van Vechten Olcott of New York
think of the time ^hen he' was very
green in the game of national law
making. Before he was sworn in he
received notice from the postmaster at
New York that there were 23 sacks of
ifiail for him at the postoffice which
he could have by calling fgr It
He had no Idea what a sack of mail
was, so he sent his office boy around to
get it, thinking that the youngster
could make several trips and'bring it
to his office. The boy-came back and
reported that he could not even lift
The congressman-elect went around
and tried to put his own six-feet-three
under one of the sacks, but failed. The
sacks were filled with bound copieB of
consular reports #and each sack
weighed over 200 pounds^
"I paid $8 to have them hauled to
my two-by-four stable In New York,"
said the representative, rubbing his
chin reflectively. "Yesterdey I got
a peremptory order from Mrs. Olcott
to remove those books' because she
needed the stall for a horse she
bought It cost me $8 mane to get rid

'SEED GBADi SPECIAL, fe
By the Northern Pacific Railway Early
Arrangements have been completed
by traffic wfflcers of .the Northern Pa-,
cific railway under which a "seed
grain special" train will nuke a trip
over the Korth'ern Pacific lines In
western Minnesota and North Dakota
early in March, carrying grain ex
perts and a corps of mea thoroughly
grounded in knowledge of plant dis
eases sad methods for Out (atpm*
ment of grain yields, wbo wUi Mettfe
at) local points along the jwilway to
farmers '.mid: everyone interested. Ipi

raas* In pro/Its
.Tfre trip of the seed spedai has hMa
planned unddir the active' supervision
of Superintendent E. E. Kaufman of
the North Dakota, termers, institutes
and Superintendent. O) CJI Gregg of the
Minnesota farmers institutes. The Hec
tares, prhlch Will be given enroute will
be delivered by thsSe authorities on
gral Uraising and experts!whom they
have selected to make tree trip with
them. The lectvuea will! be 'devoted
principally to the important questions
of the selection of grain for seeds,
tests of seed grainy, plant diseases
of selecting pure seed
and arresting the development of
smut and other, dangers.- to the grow
ing grainj. The purpose'of the trlp pf
the specila train is to' broaden the
knowledge of the farmers on" matters
of the handling of seed grain and to
disseminate the latest and'best scien
tific information of methods of in
creasing the grain yield and guard
ing crops from diseases and parasitic
growths which cut down' ttte returns
from the farmers'labor.
On the trip over tile-Northern Paci
fic lines in North) Dakota', the special
train will be In charge of Superin
tendent Kaufman and representatives
of the railway. The other members
of the corps of lecturers and assit
ants are being selected and the party
will be confined to the representa
tives of the farmers institute, lectur
ers and railway rej^'esentatives handl
ing the movement of the: ttialn. The
special will consist of a sleeping car
and coach and the latter wi^-1 be used
for the lectures' when halls and larger
meeting places are not available. The
lecture corps will give practical de
monstrations of tests of seed grain
and will be prepared1 to. give those
who attend the lectures complete In
struction In simple methods which
may be. applied on the farm,, for better
ing the quality of the seed and im^
proving the character, and yield of
the crop.. Suitable apparatus and ex
hibits wiR be supplied by the farmers
Institutes of North: Dakota and Minne
sota and the lecturers will be provided
with samples of good and bad seed
grain for use in- Illustrating their
talks to the farmers.
Superintendent Kaufman: will co
operate with Superintendent Gregg
during the trip of the special train
over Northern Pacific lines in Minne
sota. Representatives of the two
states will(jointty handle the lectures
given on thds portion, of the seed
Preparations for the trip of the
special train have been, iu progress
for some weeks. Northern Pacific of
ficials have entered heartily into the
plans originally suggested by Super
intendent Kaufmau and have donated
the special train- and crew to operate
it for the period to be covered by the
lectures. The railway taJtes no part
in the lectures themselves and these
arrangements have been outlined by
the officers of the farmers'institutes
and state officials directly in touch
with practical agricultural problems.
Traffic officers of the Nqrthern Paci
fic believe that the lectures will be
very valuable to the farmers and that
the trip of the- special train will re
sult-in a perceptible improvement in
the qualltiy of grain harvested next
year in the territory it will cover.
While the questions of selection and
tests of seed will be considered of
major importance,, the lectures and
demonstrations will cover a wide
range of additional problems of grain
raising and farmers who attend the
lectures will benefit by practical 'il
lustrations and the explanation of
simple methods of combatting the in-.
fiuences which lower grain grades and
reduce the amount harvested.
The seed grain special will leave
Fargo, N. D., on'the journey through
North Dakota on March 6, stopping
f8r lectures at Davenport, Leonard,
Sheldon, Lisbon, Engelvale, LaMoure,
and Edgely and remaining at the lat
ter point all night On March 6 the
special will visit Alfred, Berlin, Dick
