Competition the Death of Trade.
(Iron Trade Review)
It is a fact that the statesmen who
are trying to resolve the great indus
trial combinations into their constit
,••••' xient units and are doing their best to
have all competition regulating agree
ments declared illegal, are attempting
to turn the wheels of progress back
•'-ward. It is beginning to dawn upon
evfen those who are not in business
that there may be too much of that
good thing1, competition. Arbitrary
clashing of prices, unscrupulous tricks
of salesmanship and extreme reduction
of cost, when carried to excess, be
come destructive forces, bringing evil
upon consumer and producer alike.
The commercial world has been taught
tills lesson at great cost, and is every
where seeking to soften the rigors of
industrial warfare.
The drift toward co-operative meth
ods away from the cut-throat plan, of
the past is not peculiar to this country.
.The true home of- the "trust" is Ger
many, where the government encour
ages price control agreements and even
,* the little foundryman has his schedule
-of authorized Quotations. That coun
try seems -determined to conquer the
world commercially. Which merchant
or manufacturer is most likely to suc
ceed in the present international con
test. he who is permitted to thrive in
peace at home, or he who is compelled
to fight at home as well as abroad

ment. World's shipments were a mill

ceipts were 202 cars.
The market was weak during the re
mainder of the day, May closing
lower at 77%.

Local .receipts were larger than had
been expected, but despite this, there
was excellent demand from shorts. May
opened at 46%@46*4 and declined to
45%. Receipts were 717 cars.
Active buying by cash houses caused
a sharp rally, and May closed hi higher
at 46%@46%.
Oats were quiet and steady. May
opened at 39%. Receipts were 190 cars.

who is employed by H. L. Emmert,
met with an accident Saturday after
noon the final result of which.is hard
to foretell at this time. Mr. Schriber
had been working around the acetylene
gas lighting plant used in the First
National bank building and not being
able to see very well in the dark base
ment. he struck a match. Immediate
ly there was an explosion of gas. his
face being in close proximity to the
concussion. It is feared that Air.
Schriber is injured so seriously that
lie may lose his eye sight. The un
fortunate man was 'taken to Sioux City
at once for treatment at a hospital. Mr.
Schriber did not consider there was
any danger, as lie did not think there
was any escaping gas in the basement
room. His many friends regret his
misfortune and hope the worst may
not prove true.

He Wanted to Know.
(Harper's Weekly.)
Justice Harlan, of the United States
supreme court, recently celebrated thy
golden anniversary of his wedding, and
the event brought to light some sto
ries of the stalwart jurist. One relates
how the justice was riding towards
Washington on a sleeping car from
Louisville. Before retiring he went in
to the smoking compartment to get a
drink of water. There were half a.
dozen men in the place and a flask had
been passed around and the glass used
for the liquor. Justice Harlan took up
the glass, smelled it, and turned on
the smokers:
"Who," he roared, in his deep bass
voice, "has had the temerity to drink
whisky out of this glass?"
"I did," piped up the owner of th*?
flask, somewhat awed by the great bulk
of the justice.
"Then, sir," said the justice, sternly,
"where are you hiding the bottle?"

A Kansas paper tells about a woman
who is extremely religious and is hor
rified at the thought of a lie, tells her
children that babes are found in trees
and that doctors bring them in their

really she is bored, and she does not
hesitate to tell her servant to inform
callers she is out. She tells her neigh
bors her new hat is a beauty, and
roasts it when she leaves. She tells
her kin she is hard up and can't lend
them the $5 they want -to pay on the
mortgage, and she spends 510 on re

her kin are not invited. She tells her
neighbor's husband that she likes
cigar smoke and to smoke when he
calls, and tells her husband that the
smell of a cigar makes her sick. She

Head of Great Western System
Sees Danger in Further
Question Discussed by Magnate at a
Banquet of Transportation Club—
Figures Made to Show Further Tink­
ering by Commission Will Destroy
Minneapolis, Feb. 4.—"Railway Rates"
was the subject of an address delivered
Saturday night at the Ryan hotel be
fore the Transportation club of St.
Paul, by A. B. Stickney, president of
the Chicago Great Western railway.
Mr. Stickney was the guest of the eve
ning and the only speaker after the
Mr. Stickney said at the outset that
the purpose of his address is to demon
strate that the competitive railway
rates are now so low and the margin
of profits in the competitive railway
business so small that
general re­
duction of rates can be made by law
without doing injustice.
Two well-defined non-competitive
sections, where railway rates are
higher, were named by Mr. Stickney,
as the far east and the far west. In
New England the railways are dom
inated by two managements. They
pay 4.09 on bonds and 5.56 on stock,
yet they pay less than the bank's and
much less profit than the manufact
In the western district, from the
Pacific ocean to Duluth, St. Paul. Min
neapolis, Sioux Clly, Omaha, Kansas
City. Memphis and New Orleans, the
railroads are under two managements.
AbouL 1892 the Northern Pacific, Union
Pacific and Santa Fe roads were ut
terly bankrupt. The Southern Pacific
never paid a dividend until 1906. The
Northern Pacific up to 1893 had paid
an average of 2'^ per cent
the act­
ual cash expended on construction. The
Great Northern was not operated to the
coast until 1S93.
Mr. Stickney first traced the history
of the Great Northern road, showing
that it pays approximately 4% per cent
on its bonds and 7 per cent on its
stock. The surplus is invested in im
provements and 'does not add a penny
to the income of the stockholders.
Summarizing, the speaker asked "Is
there any other business 4ont in its
territory on so narrow a margin of
For comparison Mr. Stickney took
the average rate of interest and divi
dend payments in the entire country,
which would be naturally higher than
in the competitive section alone. This
is 3.65 per cent interest and 3.02 divi
dends in 1905.
"There Is
other business in the
country," continues Mr. Stickney.
"which is done on so small a margin
of profit as 3.02 per cent dividends,
and the tonnage carried by the rail
roads is so large that a reduction of
the insignificant amount of one-half a
cent a hundredweight on a 100-mile
haul, would deprive the stockholders .of
railways of all dividends."
"In the non-competitive 'territory,"
said Mr. Stickney, "a reduction of 1
mill a ton-mile would not equa\ the div
idends paid. In non-competitive New
England, where the average haul is
short, and the average rate is, there
fore. apparently large, a reduction of
3.6 mills in 1905 would equal the divi
dends paid. A reduction in 1906, the
most prosperous year in their respec
tive histories, of the average rate of
the Northern Pacific Railway company
of 2.1 mills, and of the average rate of
the Great Northern Railway company
of 1.6 mills, would have equaled the
dividends paid.
"When one. realizes the narrowness
of the margin of profits upon which
railroad business is conducted and how
slight a decrease of rates would de
stroy all profits, and the persistent ef
fort which is being n/ade by newspaper
and magazine writers, political speak
ers, legislative bodies and 'railroad com
missions to reduce rates, one marvels
that capital can be induced to go into
the railroad business. It is my-convic
tion that if it were not for the sub
lime imagination of the New York
Stock Exchange, it would be im
possible to induce capital to make such
"Rates are already so low that it is
impossible to get capital to invest in
new railroad enterprises."
