DIG ESTATE SETTLED
The John W. Pence Lands in
North Dakota Soon For
Sale.
Probating of the estate ef John W.
Pence, late of Minneapolis, waa closed
Tuesday in Judge Knauf's oourt. The
eatate was one of tbe largeat ever before
tbe oounty court for settlement. Among
tbe property were 16 seotions of land in
Footer oounty, eight in Griggs, six in La
Moure, three lots in Mandsn, four sec­
tions in Riobland oounty and seven seo­
tions in Stutsman, or 27,240 sores, Tbe
will wss admitted to probate in Minne
aotain 1894 and property of a greater
amount distributed there. Several
hundred thousand dollsrs were paid in
legacies.
The lands in North Dakota are mostly
unimproved and it is said will soon be
sold. McCumber A Bogart, Wahpetoc
are attorneys for the estate in North
Dakota. The lands were bought in tbe
early days for speculation.
There are some ten heirs residing in
tbe Twin Cities, Cslifornia and Ohio.
Tbe final decree in the probate court of
thia oounty on being filed and reoorded
in different counties changes trend of
title to all real estate situated in the
different oounties.
The exooutors of this estate paid $75
to tbe oounty treasurer, as a probate tax
made on assessed valuation of property.
Tbis is to reimburse the oounty for ex­
pense of probate judge, and is tbe
largest probate tax ever paid on any
estate in this oounty and probably in
tbe state.

Furthermore, all of tbe transconti­
nental aa well as the western and trunk
lines are parties to the agreement,
which provides for the payment to the
steamship companies of ten. per cent,
commission on all steerage pacsengers
turned over by the latter to the rail­
roads.
One of the ticket scalpers' chief
sources of revenue is now cut off, and
the railroads the country over agree
to turn over a "fat" commission of ten
per cent, to the ateamship companies
by virtue of the latter refusing to have
any further dealings with, outside
agents. It meana an end to demorali­
zation and a tightening of the screws
all along the line.
One of the most significant results of
the deal is the decision to adfance im­
migrant fare* from New York and other
seaboard cities, such as Boston, Phila­
delphia, Baltimore and Newport News,
to the west, beginning December 15.
Tbe advance from New York to Chicago
ia from $13 to $15. Boston ia to have a
differential of one dollar, the rate from
that city to Chicago being $14.
It is well known that there is more
profit in the transportation of immi­
grants than any other class of passen­
gers, owing to tbe fact that the poorest
cars are generally used for this service,
and it is unimportant whether the
trains travel rapidly or slowly. The
fact is recalled that a number of years
ago, during a war of rates between
the trunk lines, tbe Pennsylvania rail­
road carried immigrants for one dollar
apiece from New York to Chicago.
The ground) upon which the steam­
ship companies allege they are en­
titled to a commission of ten per cent,
is that most of the steerage passengers
are brought over here through the in­
fluence of their agents in the west
Europe, and consequently the railroad
companies are indebted to the steam­
ship agents for this traffic. It ie in
the power of the steamship companiea
to turn this business over to any nne
railroad, and thus discriminate against
all the others, as they have somettmea
done in tbe past.
A
Philadelphia housekeeper tells this
etory in the Record of that city: "We
had at one time in our employ a very
green young woman. This young wom­
an also came to ua through an intelli­
gence office. She showed her in­
telligence on the first day of her serv­
ioe in our family. She was told to go
out In the yard and take down tha
clothesline, which was stretched among
a half-doaen posts set up for that pur­
pose. She was at the job for so long a
time that we began to wonder what on.
earth waa the matter with her. We
went out to see what she was doing,
and there we found her working away
vigorously with a spade. She had al­
ready dug up three of the posts, and:
had almost completed the work on a
fourth when we found her. She didn't
stay with us long."

In the firat place, it takes in not ocly
