IS JUDGE KOHLSAAT QUASHES WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS GRANT ED NINE DEFENDANTS. 00DGED THE COURTS 9 YEARS Obstacle Removed, Trial May Be Be gun—Full Jurisdiction Declared to Be Vested In District Tribunal. Chicago, Nov. 20. Ten packing house magnates whom the government has sought for more than eight years to bring to trial on charges of viola tion of the Sherman anti-trust law will face a jury. The last avenue of escape, the final plan to temporize, and t.he last des perate expedient of the packers to stave off a trial, was blocked "by decision of United States Circuit Judge C. C. Kohlsaat, when he quashed a writ of habeas corpus previously sued out by them, and, in granting them an appeal from his decision, re fused to take the defendants out of the custody of the district court. Counsel for the packers were grant ed right to appeal on the question of whether the court erred in quashing the writ of habeas corpus. They will take that question, which involves also an attempt to have the Sherman law's penal section declared unconsti tutional, because of indefiniteness, to the supreme court of the United States. But, by refusing himself to ad mit the defendants to bail, and re quiring that they should be surrender ed back to their bondsmen, Judge Kohlsaat keeps the packers in the physical custody of the district court, and so far as lawyers could figure out, makes it impossible for the defendants to avoid standing trial. Their appeal on the habeas corpus writ is separated from the main issues in the case. It will be the first time since July 1, 1903—when the government first began its prosecution against them— that the department of justice has suc ceeded in forcing thm to trial. Through nearly nine years of litiga tion, the defendants have successfully Interposed obstacle after obstacle to prevent consummation of the govern ment's plans. The men are indicted for criminal sonspiracy to restrain commerce, and, If convicted, may be sent to jail. Judge Kohlsaat, in his decision, de clared that the plea of the petitioners that an immediate adjudication of the constitutionality of the penal section of the Sherman law—under which the packers were indicted—constituted special and extraordinary reasons why It should be granted, was untenable. "In the opinion of this court, the district court has full jurisdiction, and for this court to intervene and in quire into the constitutionality of the law, after that question had been raised and decided in the district court, as pleaded by the government, would be in effect a review of the de cision of the district court. PROBLEM OF FARM LABOR. Federal and Northwest State Officials Form Organization. Washington, Nov. 20.—Co-ordination of the working forces in the states with the federal government in bring ing about closer connection between land and labor and immigrants from foreign countries is expected to be the object of the new organization perfected here as a result of the con ference of the state immigration, land and labor officials of the various states. This conference was called upon the initiative of T. V. Powderly of the United States immigration bureau. Representatives of the Minnesota, Wisconsin and other northwestern state boards of immigration, land and labor, were in attendance at the meeting and they became members of the national association. Problems related to the furnishing of lands to the landless, whether for eigners or native citizens, workers on farms and in industrial pursuits, con front the new organization, as also the various state boards and associations connected with this branch of work. Out of the things sought to be accom plished is to bring immigrants from foreign countries into more immediate relations with the state associations and boards that are engaged in pro moting the acquisition of lands or in furnishing employes for those who want help, and employment for those in search of work.

Not Since 1855 I DEMOCRATS AT FAR60 JAN. 1.7 ONE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WILL ATTEND. •dea of Gathering Is to Let Local Men Meet the Bjg Guns of the Party. Fargo, Nov. 20.—There will be a notable, gathering of Northwestern and other Democrats here Jan. 17 and 18, which will be attended by at least one prospective presidential can didate. Chairman MacArthur of the Democratic state central committee issued the following statement: "Jan uary 17 and 18 has been fixed as the date for the big Northwestern Demo cratic get-together meeting, which will be held in this city. An un usually strong list of speakers has been obtained for the affair. A tele gram has been received from Gov ernor Harmon of Ohio, stating that he will be present. Wm. J. Bryan has stated that he will make every effort to attend. Former Governor Folk of Missouri and Governor Nor ris of Montana, Martin J. Wade of Iowa, J. B. Sullivan of Iowa and for mer Senator Pettigrew of South Da kota are some of the men who will attend. "Provision is being made by the local Democrats to take care of the largest crowd possible. Definite an swers have not been received from Governor Foss of Massachusetts, Car ter Harrison, Alton B. Parker and Governor Marshall of Indiana, Gov ernor Wilson of New Jersey cannot be present on account of the legis lature of his state being in session. "The meeting will not be held to boom any candidate, but as some of the men prominently mentioned as candidates for the presidency will be present, an unusual opportunity will be extended Democrats of the North west to meet the great men of the party." The event will be the biggest gath ering of Democrats ever held in the West. Although the first idea of the committee was to have a meeting of the state Democrats, the response has been so gratifying, according to Chairman McArthur, that the state central committee feels justified in converting the meeting into a gath ering of the Northwestern Democrats and invitations are being sent to rep resentative Democrats in all the Northwestern states. STORM RAGING ON LAKES. Have North Lakes Had Such Weather. Detroit, Nov. 20.—Lakes Michigan, Superior and Huron have been whip ped into a frenzy by a blinding snow storm and gale which has been blow ing for the past two days and nights and which is still raging. Life saving crews worked all last night taking scores of passengers and sailors from foundering vessels. Many damaged boats are now in places of refuge and a number of deserted barges have been left to the mercy of the ele ments. Not since 1855 have these three lakes been visited by such a storm. Boatmen fear the lakes will freeze over, causing a sudden close to navi gation, and there is much uneasiness. Many boats are in shelter in Sault Ste. Marie and others are reported long overdue. Alpena was practically isolated for hours Mackinaw City, Sault Ste. Marie, Cadillac and neighboring cities are in the path of the storm. Pas senger and freight trains have been tied up at Cadillac. The steam barge Isabelle Royce, coal laden and the steamer United Lumberman, reached Alpena minus thir barges. The Royce lost hers be tween Middle and Thunder bay isl ands, and both life saving crews are searching for it. A tug attempted to give assistance to the United Lumber man's barges, but was unable to get close by. Alpena also reports that the lumber schooner Coresand is in a bad way off Scarecrow Point near which place is another steamer either aground or anchored. Less than a mile from her Mackin aw City dock, is the new car ferry Chief Wawatam, aground. She cannot be released until the storm abates, but is expected to weather the gala FILM EXCHANGE IS BURNED.

TIONS CAUSES FIRST CAR SHORTAGE IN FIVE YEARS. MORE FREIGHT CARS ARE NEEDED Railroads Confident of Meeting De mands—Officials Admit That Shipments Have Taxed Equipment. Minneapolis, Nov. 21.—Business is away ahead of what they thought it' was going to be and North Dakota shippers are asking the railroads for more cars. On the Great Northern from Devils Lake to beyond Minot, the Northern Pacific from Fargo to. Jamestown and beyond, on the Red River valley line of the Milwaukee and again where the Puget Sound ex tension touches North Dakota and on the Soo from Fessenden north to Flax ton, there is business moving that is keeping things on the jump. North Dakota needs coal is getting. It in great quantity, but wants to getj It faster, and is asking the railroads to hurry it along. Business Taxes Facilities. A car shortage in North Dakota, such as has not been experienced in the northwest since the winter of 1906-1907 has again developed. Ship ments of wheat, flax, barley and other produce from North Dakota stations to Minneapolis and Duluth have been so heavy, and so much coal, lumber and merchandise has gone back into that state, that a business far in ex cess of what was expected by either the railroads or the merchants has been offering itself and is still there to be handled. Consequently ship pers have to wait a day or two to get cars. "We are taking care of all demands, but the recent storm set us back a little," said J. B. Baird. general freight agent of the Northern Pacific road, and the same report was made by W. T. Kenney, traffic manager of the Great Northern and W. L. Martin, traffic manager of the Soo line. The Milwaukee road is handling a good business out of those parts of North Dakota that, it touches and is taking care of shippers. The roads that reach the head of the lakes found a coal tonnage of large proportions awaiting early movement west, with the usual winter insistence upon prompt delivery. Expectations Exceeded. "There is not likely to be any car Scarcity of consequence," said W. L. Martin. "It is true that business has been better than was looked for. The principal pressure is from the coal demand from North Dakota. This we' are earing for and have kept a stream of coal moving west. There have been only a few grain elevators at sta tions on our lines that have been filled to maximum and were without relief In ability to ship east, and we are looking after such eases." The railroad officials say that the significance of the report is not that the railroads are short of equipment, for they say that there are cars enough. It is a showing, they say, of a volume of business in North Da kota that is very good and much bet ter than the bad crop of last year in dicated as a possibility. DYGART GETS LIFE. Anoka Murderer, Shows Insolent Bravado in Court. Minneapolis, Nov. 21.—"James Dy gart, you can be thankful that capital punishment has been abolished in Minnesota," said Judge A. E. Giddings of Anoka county when Dygart pleaded guilty to the murder of Mrs. Frank Bolton and her cousin, Frank Rhodes, on the Bolton farm, near Anoka, September 10. "Can't we have it back again? That would suit me," retorted Dygart." He' was at once sentenced to the state prison for life. These statements followed Dygart's cold-blooded avowal to the court of those crimes and the murder of John Hofetede in Poplar, Wis., to which he added: "I don't believe I did wrong and I believe that I have the right to take any man's life at any time. "I guess it was born in me. Wireless Connects Italy and U. S. New York, Nov. 21.

Canada at the WILL MAKE A MAGNIFICENT Efc« HIBIT OF GRAINS AND GRASSES, VEGETABLES AND FRUIT. A carload of grain in straw, grasseri and other of the products of Western Canada arrived at Chicago the other day, and is now installed in the Coliseum, where the United States land and irrigation exposition is under way. Those who are Interested in' the "Back to the land movement" will find In the Canadian exhibit one of the best displays of the agricultural products of Western Canada that has ever been made. There are repre sentative men there, who will be pleased to give the fullest information regarding the country. The exhibit shows what can be! done on the free grant lands of that country and most of the grain was produced on the farms of former resi dents of the United States who have taken advantage of the homestead lands of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The vegetable exhibit will attract! a great deal of attention, and soma marvelous potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbage and cauliflower are shown. It is true that the homestead area Is being rapidly taken up and the bulk of that now to be had lies north of the Saskatchewan river In a por tion of the country known, as the park country. Here thcr6 Is a large quan tity of open prairie Interspersed by beautiful groves of poplar and willow. Water Is in abundance, hay Is plenti ful and consequently fodder for ani mals Is right at hand. Those who have taken advantage of farming In these districts and watched the efforts of those in the prairie proper feel that they have the advantage of their brother, who is not able to secure fuel and the other conveniences of the park district on his own farm. The crop conditions throughout Western Canada the past year have been generally good, and some won derful crop yields of wheat, oats and barley are recorded. The Canadian Government, under whose auspices the exhibit spoken of is being made, Is preparing reports on crops in the different Western Canada districts, and while these will not be ready for distribution at the land show com mencing on the 18th of November and closing on Dec. 8th, application made to the Canadian Government agent nearest you will bring them to you as soon as they are published. MERE SUGGESTION. Miss Antique—I have so much on my mind I wish I knew what to do for relief. Miss Caustique—'Why not remove your switch? PHYSICIAN ADVISES CUTICURA REMEDIES "Four years ago I had places break out on my wrist and on my shin which would itch and burn by spells, and scratching them would not seem to give any relief. When the trouble first began, my wrist and shin itched like poison. I would scratch those places until they would bleed before I could get any relief. Afterwards the places would scale over, and the flesh un derneath would look red and feverish. Sometimes It would begin to Itch until it would waken me from my sleep, and I would have to go through the scratching "ordeal again. Our physician pronounced it "dry eczema." I used an ointment which the doctor gave me, but it did no good. Then he advised me to try the Cutl cura Remedies. As this trouble has been in our family for years, and is considered hereditary, I felt anxious to try to head it oft. I got the Cuti cura Soap, Ointment and Pills, and they seemed to be just what I needed. "The disease was making great headway on my system until I got the Cuticura Remedies which have cleared my skin of the great pest. From the time the eczema healed four years ago, until now, I have never felt any of its pest, and 1 am thankful to the Cuticura Soap and Ointment which certainly cured me. I always UBO the Cuticura Soap for toilet, and I hope other sufferers from skin diseases will UBe the Cuticura Soap and Ointment" (Signed) Irven Hutchison, Three Riv ers, Mich., Mar. 16, 1911.
