CRU8ADER AGAINST BUCKET
8H0P8 ENTER8 SUIT AGAINST
CHICAGO, Dec. 14.?What*"Is-declared
lo be the first step toward
breaking up Rid so-called Elevator
Trust la control of the Chicago grain
market was taken by John Hill, Jr.,
Board of Trade crusader against bucket
shops. In the form of a suit of demanding
the revocation of the license
of the South Chicago Elevator Company,
one of the leading local grain
Hill says the company has violated
the law by deallbg In grain in Its own
clevatorB and by selling grain on the
board at less than the market price
as an Inducment for elevator patronage.
It is asserted that a trust agreement
has existed between the South
Chicago and Central elevators and the
Penvy and Armour drain Companies.
Hiss says evidence of the violation
of the law has been placed in the
State's attorney's hands and that
criminal prosecution will follow bis
The complainant supplemented his
suit by the distribution on the Board
of Trade of a pamphlet entitled
"Whom Rogues Cnnnot Buy They
Would Uestroy" and dedicated to
"Those 'respectable' members of the
Hoard of Trade who have Industriously
labored for months past, with the
aid of a blackmailing detectlvp agency,
to find means of blackening my reputation."
Reference Is made to the writer's
campaign against "bucket-shopping
and other Hoard of Trades abuses"
and stories are revived of an attempt
to blow up his bouse in. IRS8.
"Men of the same purpose." says
the pamphlet, are now Inslduously at
work In besmirch my name. Their
aim can be no other than that wholesale
bucket-shopping may he perpetrated
ami Illegal warehousing of grain

forestry law this winter there are a ;
few esKentful things which should he;

laws differ in the different States, j
Some spend large sums in experimen-j
tal true culture, using specialists at j
high salaries. This work contributes j
more |? science in general than to
fi?. benefit in particular, and
is not absolutely necessary lo this
West Y^Kinia needs one thing
above idl others to preserve its for- j
csts. Tliat one thing is protection j
against fire. It is a difficult thing j
to reach. In fact it is as impossible |
to prevent, fires in the woods as to i
prevent them in cities; but measures
can be taken to lessen the evil
by making it as unlawful for a man
to sit h forest fire on his own land
as to set tire to his own house.

*E8T VIRGINIA FROM THE MOIH-. ^
"Under the ImpuUe of development,
West Virginia has become as c<
dffferat from the parent State as if m
be were separated therefrom by 0|
barriers Of the" most pronounceil w
type. Contrary to' the Impressions y,
of many, especially those of the 0|
north who are wont to regard West a(
Virginia as a southern State, we have
passed forever from tho character w
Istlcs of Virginia. The mountains s(
riividft mnrlf nt onpfl the natural ...
division of the States, and the per- s|
sonsl distinctions of the populations. j|
The colonial disposition fades be- c,
yond preceptlon when one crosses tt
the Alleghanies. a
The new blood that has been in- ni
fused Into the young commonwealth q
came largely from Ohio and Penn- C(
sylvanla, and West Virginia is now ,t
more like those great subdivisions fc
of the Union, both In spirit and in j.
general community of Interest. The ^
Ohio dividing us from the State of (j
presidential aspirations Is not a
harrier, hut a common tie, and with n,
Pennsylvania industrial enthusiasm ^
