MR. HILL'S OBSERVATIONS.
President Howard Elliott of the
Northern Pacific, was given a flatter*
ing reception at St. Paul on which
ocoasslon speecnes by prominent rai'
road men and citizens were made
and the future of the Northorn Paci
fic country discussed. As usual when
Mr. J. J. nill was called upon he had
something weighty to say, and said
it regardless of whether it sounded
pleasantly on the ear or not. He re
peated what he said in Bismarck
about Chamberlain in England mak
ing a probably successful! campaign
for a preferential tariff In favor of
the British colonies and the likeli
hood that he would win- The tradi
tional free trade policy of the British
people has received some hard knocks
and if Chamberlain wins there will
be a Lax put on our food propuct of
which Great Britain now buys 70
per cent of all we export. Of course
therfl would be no tax on the Cana
dian wheat or food stuffs, and this
would tend to make that country
boom from an agricultural stand
Mr. Hill ridicules the reciprocity
treaties that have been made to
stimulate trade with Cuba and South
America and says this year our trade
with all South America only amount
ed to 41 and with Canada
•140. He predicts if Cham
berlain wins, there will be a tax of
10 cents a bushel on the wheat of the
northwest which will make the price
of wheat to the American farmer be-1
low the cost of producing it as prices
have ruled in late years.
Mr. Hill says that Minnesota has
no timber or great natural productions
to make her towns grow and will!
have to depend on soil and climate
and the sale for the food over supply.
All the professional men, the merch
ants, and manufacturing concerns de
pend on the success of agriculture and
if the northwest is going to prosper
some reciprocity with Canada will
have to be put into effect.
Mr. Hill says the cost of hauling a
barrel of flour from the twin cities to
New York, 1,300 miles, is 25 cents a
hundred pounds, and to Hong Kong,
8,000 miles, it is expected it will be
only 40c a hundred and the Northern
sureties company are defending the
law suit for trying to build up a trade
for some people seem to think they
are working "in restraint of trade."
He predicted little benefit to the
northwest from the Panama canal
which would do no one any good ex
cept the man who ate bananas. He
said the people would pay the full
share however, of the 500 in
taxes, that the canal would cost.
Mr. Hill always says something to
set people thinking and he jars them
up—which is a good thing to do once
in a while—to get the straight of

Fibroid Tumors Cured.
A distressing case of Fibroid Tumor,

Note the result of Mrs. Pinkham's advice—al
though she advised Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, to take
her medicine—which she knew would help her—
her letter contained a mass of additional instruc
tions as to treatment, all of which helped to bring
about the happy result.
"DEAR MRS. PINKHAM:—Sometime ago I wrote to yon describ

all your directions carefully, and to-day I am a well woman.

'PHONE FOR PINGREE.
The Price Bros, have made appli
cation for the right to erect polesand
string wires for a local telephone line
in the town and for a distance of five
miles from the town for a country
service. The matter was referred to
the state's attorney's attention. The
telephone line from Buchanan to
Jamestown a franchise for which was
obtained last fall is expected to be
put in this spring. It may not be
long before the gap between James
town and Melville will be completely
filled and a good local phone service
established to the northern part of
the county. This will be one of the
greatest benefits to farmers and busi
ness men that can be obtained.
