Story of Indictment of Bed Hirer Tak
ley Brick Company's Officials
Hot Air Hoax.
Prom the unreliable character of its
news columns of late the democratic
evening dally of this city io giving
some of the Hearst journals a close
run for their money. The latest of
this kind of news was the story that
the officers of the Red River Valley
Brick company had been indicted by
the federal grand jury for accepting
rebates from the Great Northern rail
road. When inquiry was made at the
offices of the company in this city this
morning as to the foundation for the
story, the officials pronounced the
story one of the whole doth. Secre
tary Louis Campbell while treating
the matter with the utmost contempt,
stated that no one in his senses would
advance such a story unless he was
bent on wilful mlerepresenatlon or
was absolutely ignorant of the facts.
While the company Bhips in and out of
this city during the year from 1,000 to
1,200 cars of material, more than
per cent, of them are to and from
non-competitive points on the railroads
and it is certain that no Tailroad even
in the flushest days of rebating neg
lected business to such an extent that
they gave rebates on lines and from
points on which they controlled the
entire freight A story is current in
the .city that there Is to be an or
ganized effort to drive this concern out
of business If It can possibly bo done,
and that this waa the first straw which
indicated the direction of the wind.
