K. KELLOGG. EVERT year before harvest elevator men, speculators, millers and others in terested ia keeping down the price of wheati take pains to enlarge on the prob able yield of the coming crop, and to send out misleading information to bear the market. These efforts are assisted by the always well meaning newspapers in exaggerating the prospective yield per acre, the quality and acreage. The effect of the shortsighted reports is directly contrary to what the looal papers intend. It is adverse to the farmer and plays directly into the hands of every agency organized to keep the price of wheat low ia the northwest. The Dakotas suffer more from this cause than any other portion of the United States, for the sys tem of handling grain here is such that there is no looal competition to buoy up and sustain a market. This spring the same wildly hopeful and flattering reports of the enormous prospects in the hard wheat region, have been telegraphed all over the world. Statements as to increased acreage, abundance of rain and other favorable conditions have been spread before every board of trade in the country. Speculators figure on these reports, and the price of wheat falls ac cordingly. European grain prospects are admitted by all to be poor, indeed, and that fact has had its strong effect in strengthening the American market. But at home the reports of a directly con trary nature have more than counter balanced the foreign information. Whatever may be thf- true condition of the crop in the winter wheat states, there can be no doubt but what the prospects for a large and certain crop in Minnesota and the Dakotas have been greatly over estimated. The ground was in good condition in the early spring before planting. There have been few rains since and the surface of the fields has been rapidly drying up, from warm winds and hot sun. There have been severe frosts, cutting down many thousands of acres, frosts which destroyed leaves on trees and which have certainly not bene fitted the young wheat plants. The hard wheat crop is never safe until threshed, and its probable yield is one of the rftost uncertain of quantities. The conditious favorably reported at first have not been truthfully reported as they have occurred since. The prairie looks bare and brown, instead of the lively bright green that should show a good condition of the ground at this time of the year. Every farmer talks hopefully, and believes in a big crop. It is natural. Every elevator agent at the hundreds of stations, interested in serv ing his employer, paints in brilliant colors the great prospects of harvest. Wheat buyers want to buy low wheat the same as merchants want to buy eggs, butter and poultry, at the cheapest price. The truth is the best for the farmer, yet no one seems interested enough to tell it. A few days of hot winds and a continu ance of dry weather will do damage that no amount of rain, later on, can repair. The northwestern wheat crop is in no better condition than this time last year —if as good. And last year's crop was but half a one. THE farmers of the northwest are in close sympathy with the objects to be gained by the national independent movement—objects which are being stated and discussed in a great conven tion of farmers and labor union men in Cincinnati, O. North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota farmers are more than interested, they are vitally con cerned in the movement. From the con vention platform and the walls of the hall three significant banners present their fronts to 1,500 delegates, gathered from field and factory, representing over state in the Union. The mottoes staring the laboring men in the eyes are: •'United we stand, divided we fall," "Nine million mortgaged homes," "Op position to all monopolies." The chief question before the conven tion is whether the movement shall take the form of a third party, to appeal to the country at the next general election or not. There are enthusiastic advo cates of the plan. There are equally strong opponents. Whether such a move would be expedient or not, it is now difficult to foresee. It would bring the issues that have been slowly gather ing and impressing themselves on the farmers and laboring man's mind, before their evening firesides, much more quickly for a consideration. Even if the trial was premature the re sult would be but partially disastrous. The standard of intelligence and educa tion has been largely raised in this coun try during the last twenty-five years The wrongs complained of by delegates at the Cincinnati convention are not the outgrowth of recent conditions to disap pear like an epidemic or a cold wave. They are deep seated concerns and will only be adjusted by efforts greater and more determined than those which brought them about. The monopolies of the country need not feel that they have anew lease of oppression,if the Cincinnati convention decides against a third party. FROM his vantage ground of a recent survey of European conditions, Hon. Tom Reed states that the present Amer ican tariff law is greatly agitating every important commercial nation in the old world and that Australia has felt the losing if act of the McKinley bill so keenly in her foreign trade that an effort has been made to induce other nations to enter into measures of reprisal or re taliation against the United States. The other nations have as yet done nothing of the kind, and are only endeavoring to strengthen their domestic commerce, and protect their own interests on exactly the same principle that this country is doing. The McKinley bill has been so diligent ly lied about, and its provisions distorted, that many people think the tariff duties it creates are now simply "out of sight." The facts are, as ex-Speaker Reed points out, that fifty per cent of purchases fiom Europe made in this country are on the free list, twenty-four per cent are admit ted at a reduced rate of duty, twenty two per cent at the same rate, while but four per cent have been advanced over the old tariff. It takes but a plain tale to pat the democrats down in the matter of the McKinley bill. THE most reliable advices say that it is practically settled that the reported wheat shortage in Europe can not be "ameliorated by any king of weather, which can only save the crops from fur ther shrinkage." A Chicago market re port says Beerbohm considers present prices still very moderate under the cir cumstances that the possibility of afresh decided advance must be kept in view as it is improbable that the weather will remain continuously fine during May and June—without which the Eu ropean crops may be more seriously defic ient than is now expected—and predicts a large and immediate demand for the American new crop. Contrary to the opinion of local home talent, he claims that present prices have been built on a permanent foundation, and that there is ample justification for expecting higher in the future. The local market has for the last decade been in the hands of scalpers, who are perfect strangers to inter-commercial trade influences, con sequently the new level of values will remain a puzzle to them until taught by new experience. THE convention which will be held at Cincinnati on the' 19th of this month promises to be of far-reaching conse quences. It will be a meeting of the Farmers alliance and kindred organiza tions. The more radical of the farmer and labor leaders will undoubtedly force the third party question into the deliber ations of the convention, but with what result only the future can disclose. There seems to be no reasonable present call for a third party and even the alliance advocates—or many of them— who are in favor of a third party do not believe in thru&ting it upon the public before its time. It believed in many quarters that this influence is strong enough to prevent the Cincinnati con vention from taking any action which can be construed as inaugurating a third party move. Congressman-elect Simpson is reported to have delivered himself of the opinion that "parties are born not made" and that the Cincinnati gathering will steer wide of the question. PITTSBURG purists are vociferously declaring that lngersoll shall not deliver a Sunday lecture in that sooty, gas en lightened city, for pay. Pittsburg's council'evidently thinks that the Sunday day was set aside for the use and benefit of one class of people only. Two hours of Ingersoll's eloquence, of appeals for true morality, of enlightenment on matters of art, intellect and education two hours of the brilliant speaker's clean, whole some and elevating influence would be worth more to the average citizen of that strike-bnrdened, ignorance-darkened city than all the advantages a year of iron clad Sundays could bring. Pitts burg is the center of a region that sadiy needs the light of tolerence, of the sun, of humanizing conditions—light that lnger soll radiates and advocates more than any other individual or agency in the country. THE Leeds News complains that the Great Northern road delivers mails nnder a government contract, whenever it pleases, and nothing is done about it, but if a poor man with a star route con tract fails to fulfill every detail of his agreement he suffers for the neglect without any delay whatever. The half paid "star-router must 'get there' in time, if he has to go afoot, as did the Dunseith and Bolla mail carrier last spring" says the News. It hardly possi ble that such an excellent and impartial basinets man as Postmaster General Wannamaker would willingly discrimi nate between animal and steam trans portation in the prompt delivery of the mails. BISHOP SHANLEY will take up his per sonal residence in some point in the Red river valley for reasons given in The Alert yesterday. He says that at present the center of Catholic population is nearer the Red than the James river, and that convenience in visiting the various parishes of his diocese is the chief reason for his removal. Fargo will give $12000. to liquidate a church debt and to insure the commencement of a large new edifice, for the Catholic denomination. It is said the bishop is to make that city his headquniters. TODAY, the 18th of May, is celebrated by Norwegians in America and Europe, and in fact more or less nil over the world, as their Independence day. The. present Amerioan citizen, born and raised to a giddy height of glorious inde pendence in this country, has all but for gotten what his Fourth ot July is for but there are citizens here from other countries who have not, and among them are the Norwegians. Their patriotism, loyalty and sturdy traits of character are gratifying to the student of American institutions. ED. I. P. STEADK, the Devils Lake machinery man, who recently failed with liabilities aggregating 670,000, seems to be somewhat more ot a pugilistic than a business success. Editor Nye and Steade quarrelled over the Inter Ocean's write up of the ffailure and the plowman spoiled the editor's beaut/. Nye has the sympathy of the press gang and the con solation that be furnished the exception that proves the general rule—that it is the other fellow who gets "licked." THE special irrigation issue of the Da kota Farmer is out. It is a fine, sixteen page number, full of interesting informa tion about the great James river arte sian basin and contains many special articles on the various phases of the irri gation question from competent authori ties. The edition numbers 50,000 copies and should result in much good to the Dakotas. Editor Bushnell's journalistic enterprise should meet with financial success. THE latest gossip about the Fargo post office is that Editor Jordan has the toss. Special dispatches from Washington are not to be relied 011 when their intent is plainly to break up good feeling among the political leaders ot this state. It is believed that harmony will prevail among the republicans to a greater ex tent hereafter than before, and that all will work for a bigger vote than at the last general election. IT turns out that the wheat acreage in several counties has been greatly over estimated. In Eddy county, which is one of the average counties in the central part of North Dakota, there has been a decided falling off in acreage over last year, several farmers estimating the shortage as high as thirty and forty per cent. Lack of seed and discourage ment of previous failures, is the cause. MESSRS. WHIPPLE and Steade, of Devils Lake, announce that they will bring 910,000 libel suits against the Devils Lake Inter Ocean, ».nd have Senator Hansbrough, the proprietor, arrested for criminal libel on his return from the east next month. The trouble grows out of the Inter Ocean's report of Steade's business failure. Political bad blood is at the bottom of it all. THE Chioago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road has issued a neat little book con taining the whist rules adopted by the American Whist congress. These rules are now the recognized authority for all American players and those who have not secured a copy of them can get one by sending to W. H. Dixon, assistant passenger agent, St. Paul, or to agents anywhere. THE Fargo rustlers who are in charge of arrangements for the Firemen's tourn ament are making a great effort to beat their own record of the past. With big prizes, low railroad rates and plenty of advertising to keep people interested, there does not seem to be any reason why the expectation of a larger crowd and a grander success than ever should not be realized. THE Tacoma .News editorially com ments on The Alert's recent interview with Col. E. S. Miller and attempts to counteract the facts and discredit the statements therein made concerning the flattened boom of the coast country. People returning from Washington every day not only substantiate what Col. Miller said but add to the harrowing details. THE postoffice department is said tc be receiving very satisfactory reports from the experimental delivery service estab lished in small towns. Hillsboro, in this state, is one of the towns in which the experiment is being tried. If free deliv ery is successful in Hillsboro it certainly would be in Jamestown—and we would like to try it. BISMARCK may close up her hotels and shut down her electric light plant, bat her irrepressible sports still keep things "a stirrin.'" The boys have a base ball club which issues a "defi" to the whole state, and are organizing a running team that is quite likely to carry away some prize money from the Fargo tournament. EDITOR SMITH of the Mayville Tri bune has sold his excellent newspaper property to the Larin Brothers of the Sheldon Enterprise. The Tribune is published a good county and has built up a good business by shrewd manage ment. The new proprietors will un doubtedly keep the Tribune to the front. COL. HOMER B. SPRAORE, late presi dent of the Grand Forks university, is abont to open a young ladies'seminary in California. He has leased an elegant new hotel property in the suburbs of Snn Francisco, and will establish the moet complete ladies' college west of the Bookies. A recent circular from the office of the superintendent of public instruction gives the number of schools in Stutsman county as G9. Cass county has 150, Rich land 130, Orand Forks 115, Pembina 110 and Walsh 112. This is a good showing of educational progress for anew state. HILLSBORO held a special eleotion Tues day and voted to incorporate under the geueral law. The proposition to bond for 812,000 for a water workB and sewer age system was defeated. Most of the cities of the Btate are now incorporated under the general law. MAJOR BEAIIDSLEY, of Grand Forks, has been awarded the contract to survey the unsurveyed townships along the Mouse river in North Dakota. Beardsley is no novice in this business. He did surveying in Dakota fifteen or twenty years ago. JOE COLTON, the Ward county coal baron, is endeavoring to interest Grand Forks people in his coal mine. He wants to organize a stock company to operate it. Colton claims that his coal is 20 per cent, better than any other in North Dakotn. THERE is probably more court busi ness pending in Ransom than in any county in the state. Forty-Bix civil and twenty-one criminal cases are awaiting action, and Judge Lander has called a special term of court to dispose of them. CONGRESSMAN JOHNSON says the Mc Kinlev bill is growing in favor every day and that reciprocity is becoming very popular. The Grand Forks Plaindealer intimates thet he is for Harrison in *92. A CALL has been issued for the annual meeting of the state Farmers alliance. Grand Forks will be the place, and June 23rd the time of the meeting. THE Valley City Times-llecord says that out of 2,000 children of school age in Barnes county, 1,200 are of Scandi navian parentage. Dr. MUlsp&ugh, one of the best known practitioners in the state, will locate in Chicago. The Pulpit and the Stage. Rev. F. M. Shrout, pastor United Brethern church, Blue Mound, Kansas, says: "I feel it my duty to tell what wonders Dr. King's New Discovery has done for me. My lungs were badly disease:!, and my parishioners thought I could live only a few weeks. I took five bottles of Dr. Kings New Discovery and am sound and well, gaining 26 lbs. in weight. Arthur Love, manager Love's Funny Folks combination, writes: "After a thorough trial and convincing evidence, I am confident Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, beats 'em all, and cures when everything else fails. The greatest kindness that I can do my many thous and friends is to urge them to try it." Free trial bottles at Baldwin & Smith's drug store. Specimen Cases. S. H.
