MADE BIG PROFITS.
Some of the Bulls Who Have Been on the Right Side of Wheat. When it is realized that wheat up to the cloBe of the market on the 3d mat. had advanced 20 cents a bushel in the last ninety days one naturally would suppose that it would be easy to pick out those who had made es" sential winnings. With out few ex ceptions, however, one finds it impos sible to decide beyond question where the big money has gone in this extra ordinary advance. There iB no doubt that Mr. Hutchinson easily heads the list of winners. Bome very sensation al estimates have been placed on his profits. Nobody puts him under $500,000. He has been talking $1 wheat since the price was 80 cents, and through all that time has been the commanding bull influence. He had been out of the market two or three times appaiently, getting out for the Bole loBt purpose of testing its sta bility. Conservative estimates of his average are 5,000,000 bushels. If his average profit has been only 10 cents a bushel, that brings the aggregate up to the popular guess. Next to Hutch inson the big winner in the local trade is W. T« Baker, the president on the board. Nobody PLAYS A BULL MARKET so tenaciously. It is of the opinion that if Hutchinson had 5,000,000 bushels oi wheat Baker had about 1, 000,000, and, while Hutchinson has lost $200,000 of his paper profit in getting out and back again, Baker has rested quietly on his line. William Young and all his old pull contingent, including his brother, Aleck Young, Charles A. Marr and E. A. Driver, have got back ail the money they ev er to the big bears, and possibly a good deal more. M. C. Mitchell went into the market with such dash as to make a very handsome winning. A Hebrew coterie which trades through Dunham & Co., made a big turn. Wil liam Dunn was a winner. Some of the biggest money was made down in St. Louis by a crowd down there known as "The Art club." It was steered right by Logan & Co. and has at times been a very substantial influ ence. The big aggregate of the money has gone into the pOcketa of the coun trymen. They knew no moderation, and bet their money savagely, be cause they imagined wheat over the whoh country was as completely gone as it was in their own fields. One lit tle trader, starting with $200, landed a profit of $10,000. There must have been many such. VII!LARD'S DREAM REALIZED. The Northern Paciflo's Combine Formsa Transcontinental Route. The Chicago Journal of the 3d inst. says: The Northern Pacific railroad company has completed a measure by which it will take possession of the properties of the Chicago & Great Western railroad company, and the Calumet terminal company. The Chi cago & Great Western is simply a ter minal company with lines inside Chi cago and with valuable terminal facilities at Harrison street and fifth avenue in the business part of the city'. It is over this company's tracks that the Wisconsin Central haB secured entrance to Chicago, and the Northern Pacific will come in over the Wisconsin Central line. The Calumet Terminal company has docks on the lake shore at Calumet just south of the city, and a belt line connecting them with the Great Western tracks. The Northern Pacific will, it is said, issue a new series of bonds to the amount of $30,000 on these proper ties. It is said the circumstances point to a close alliance between this system and the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, thus realizing Henry Villard's dream of the transcontinental great route. There is now no doubt the general offices of the Northern Pacific are to be removed to Chicago. As soon as the new depot on Fifth avenue is fin' ished the traffic department of the company will be taken there and quartered in tnat building. Traffic Manager Hanniford, has already se lected his offices and will probably occupy them in July. The Cnicago Times says that the report ot the purchase of the Calumet Terminal railroad is premature. President Tor rence says positively no such deal has been made. Four offers for the prop erty have been received, one from Henry Villard. The impression pre vails, however, that the Caulmet will soon go into the hands of the North ern Pacific. IRISH LAND PURCHASE. The Cieat English Statesman Op posed to the Principle. The assertion of the conservative organs that Mr. Gladstones speech in the house of oommons last Thursday shows him to have materially chang ed his views within the last few years regording Irish land purchase is not well founded, in view of his other speeches on the same subject. It is altogether a mistake to suppose that Mr. Gladstone is or ever has been a strong supporter of the principle of land purchase. While he has been the author or the advocate of more than one land purchase bill, he has always been careful to insist upon the necessi ty of certain well-defined conditions being complied with before any exten sive operations of land purchase could with safety be Mt in mo tion through the direct intervention of the state. When Mr. Gladstone moved for leave to introduce a bili to make amended provision for the sale and purchase ot land in Ireland in 1886, he took occasion to indicate what he regarded as a blot in the ex isting land purchase acts. "I consid or," he said, "that these acts present an extremely bad and dangerous form of dealing with this obligation, and I do do on the ground that their bases are to place the British treasury in contact with the individual occupier and farmer in Ireland. In my opinion this is not a wise policy. I do not en tertain mistrust of the. Irishman's disposition to liquidate his pecuniary engagements. I believe that he may very well, excepting under circum stances jof peculiar exasperation, bear comparison with his class in other countries in that matter. But it is a dangerous thing for a state which the course ot policy and the condition of lteislation have lead the people to regard as essentially a foreignptate, to make those people in great num bers individually its debtors danger ous because tempting to the debtor dangerous because extremely unsafe tor the state. considered as the credi tor." Notwithstanding the sate guards in Mr. Gladstone's bill tor land purchase, forty members of the pre sent unionist party in parliament op posed the measure, a number intimat ing that they would have supported the literal leader's home rule bill if he had not saddled upon them his land purchase bill, the latter causing their secession. Yet the majority, if not all, of these same members now propose to support Mr. Balfour's land pur chase scheme, which, if it had been introduced by Mr. Gladstone in 1886, would not have left him a dozen fol lowers. It is hardly necessary to mention the fact that in 1886 the conservative party to a man opposed Mr. Gladstone's Irish land purchase bill. THE ARIZONA KICKER. Editorial Machinery Sometimes Cets Confoundedly Out: of Gear. The Detroit Free Press extracts the following from the last issue of the Arizona Kicker, which came out on a half-sheet: Explanatory—We owe our readers an apology for the half-sheet we were obliged to issue this week. Monday morning, as we entered the postoffice after our mail—which, by the way, is five times as large as that of any oth er establishment in Arizona—Mr. Wanamaker's man Friday, who was appointed postmaster against the protests of nine-tenths of our people, came out into the corridor and de manded a personal apology for what the Kicker said aoout him last week. In our pioneer days, when we lived on roots, and hadn't a second shirt to our back, we used to get down and crawl whenever request ed. We felt that we had to. We were a tenderfoot and lacked sand. A change came. We haven't been doing any creeping for the last two years. On the contrary, we have had the re volver and the other man has done the four-legged act. Therefore, when Wanamaker's Friday demanded an apology and took us by the ear to en force obedience we lit onto him with a weight of two tons, and had him hol lering for mercy inside of two minutes. Before letting him up we,took his gun away, and in some manner it was dis charged and the bullet went through the palm of our right hand. The wound will prevent our using the pen for some weeks and we must dictate our copy. More Explanatory.—Wanamaker's man Friday has a brother named Jim, who is a loafer and a cur from way back. We stated last week that we believe he stole monev letters from the mails and the statement seems to have put some "git" into him. After we had licked his brother and got back to the office Jim came sneaking down the street and fired at us through a window. He had a shotgun, but he fired so high that no one was touched, and he was out of sieht before we got to the door. In a few days we are going on a hunt for Jim. We shall toe cate him and walk in on him and slice off his ear and nail it on our office door. Let him accept this as fair warning of our intentions. While he didn't hit us with any of his buck shot, the idea of such a chuckaloo fir ing at us with intent to kill rattled our nerves and sent us to bed when we ought to have been getting out copy. Further Explanatory—Some three weeks ago a wild-eyed guyasticutus entered this town bv the dirt toad and Btruck -^*2^ -S-. us for a "sit." He gave the name of J. Melville Graham, and claimed to have furnished all the brain fodder for most ol the New York papers for the last ten years. As he offered to work for $4 per week and buy his crackers and cheese from our grocery, we didn't question him as closely as we otherwise might. He had worked two days when we got hurt, and what did the lop-eared brother of a hyena do but go off and get drunk and lay down just where Col. Haven's drove of mules would run over him in going to water! He was trampled out of sight, into the sand, and on top of our other troubles we had to hire him dug out and bur ried. But tor his kick-over we could have issued a full sheet and got it out on time. We've had him carted off to one corner of our private burying ground, and shall mark his grave but we don't moura. The Latest—If our readers are not satisfied with the above explanation we have another to fire at them. O ing to our wounded hand we could not do a stroke of writing. We could dictate, however, and we hired young Bill Ellis, Bon of old reprobate Ellis, to act as our amanuensis. We had dictated about half a column when he differed with us on how to spell "cor dial." He insisted that it was "cor jul," and rather than see the English language knocked out we stopped dic tating, fired Bill out, and gave an old tramp printer $10 and told him to go ahead and run out half a sheet. Its all we eould do under the circumstanc es, and we beg the indulgence of our subscribers. Next week we shall be all right, and we promise an issue of tbe Kicker which will make the sand fly in fifty directions. THE MoKINLEY TARIFF BILL. It Has Many Friends and Is Likely to Pass Congress During the Present Session. A dispatch from Washington dated the 28th inst., says the men froin the Paeific Northweet favor tbe McLinley tariff bill in the following Philadelphia Press interviews: Representative Carter—Substantial ly I favor the McKinley tariff bill. The Republicans in earnest desire to pass the bili, and I believe it will pass promptly and without material amendment. Senator Squire—I am not prepared to speak definitely about the McKin ley bill. I certainly think that the Republicans are in earnest in their purpose to revise the tariff,* and that it will be done upon a sound protect ive basis. Everybody may not be satisfied with the new duties, but that is inevitable. Senator Allen—In many of its fea tures I favor the McKinley bill. I am not satisfied, however, but that the products of tbe farms, such as general productions, may not be more effectu ally protected than they are by the McKinley bill. I think the Republican party is most earnestly in favor of prompt legislation upon the tariff and is desirous of bringing it on for speedy and decisive action by congress. I do not think the Republican members will allow the present session of con gress to adjourn without passing a tariff act. Representative Wilson—The McKin ley bill in its xresent form will receive my support and vote. I would seri ously object to any amendment which would change the lead schedule as now proposed in the bill. HAS MANY FRIENDS. The interviews with members of congress published in the Philadelphia PresB indicate that the McKinley bill has a great many friends in congress and with some amendments will be come a law. The WeBt, in spite of the increase of duties on wool, seems to be satisfied with the free sugar and reductions made on other articles. The Northwestern members expressed themselves as follows: Representative Comstock—If the bill as it stands is the best tariff we can get, I will vote tor it. We in the Northwest want free binding twine as well as free sugar, and we do not want any increase in the woolen schedule. We would also prefer that the intern al revenue tax on tobacco remain. I believe that the Republicans are thor oughly in earnest in their determina tion to pass a sound bill revising the tariff. Representative Dunnell—The Re publican party is terribly in earnest regarding the McKinley tariff bill, and ic will certainly be passed. I am, on tbe whole, ihuch pleased with the bill and will vote tor it, although if I had my way the tobacco clause would not be inserted, and the increased tariff on woolen goods would not be exact ed. 1 represent a farming constituen cy in the West, which fact influences me in forming my opinions. Senator Washburn—Free sugar will delight the people ot the Northwest. The reduction of the duty on binding twine will also give general satisfac tion in the wheat raising districts. I shall doubtless, propose some changes in the bill.gThere is a positive pur pose to pass a tariff bill this session. I shall support the measure. Representative Snider—I shall sup port any bill that the ways and means committee report. Any bill cannot fail to be a great improvement over the present one. Representative Hall—There are some minor suggestions that I shall make, but they are ot such slight im portance that I will vote for the bill whether they are adopted or not. Senator Pettigrew—I favor the Mc Kinley tariff bill substantially as it stands. I would suggest, however, a tariff on pig tin. I believe that Re publicans are in earnest in their depire to pass the tariff bill and that it will be passed. Senator Moody—The McKinley bill suits me very well, but I think it ought to have a duty on metallic tin. The Black Hills can furnish all the tin that the tin plate industry can use, and it is that industry that will be at the mercy of the foreign syndicate that now controls the entire product otthe world outside of the United States. I shall try to have a duty put on me tallic tin when the bill reaches tbe senate. I am sure that we shall pass a tariff bill this season, and, indeed, consider it necessary for the Republi can party to do eo. Representative Pickler—I shall sup port the McKinley bill in all its gener al provisions. I also approve of its reduction of duty on binding twine. I have no doubt that a tariff measure will pass this congress. Representative Hansbrough—I will support the McKinley tariff bill and I believe it will pass at this session of congress. Senator Pierce—Representing as I do an agricultural state, I am natur ally in favor of the McKinley bill be cause it increases protection where it is moBt needed. In the products of the fields under it the farmer will re ceive more direct protection than he has ever done before. The fact is, the imports of agricultural pro ducts'into this country which could just as well be produced here, are, rel atively speaking, as large as tbe im ports of manufactured! products that might as well be produced in America by American labor. The make-up of the McKinley bill will bring the facts out. Free sugar will reduce the cost of this article of general consumption to the people and will be particularly a boon to the farmers of North Dako ta. The general tendency of the bill ,, is right and I have no doubt of its ul timate passage. Representative Carter has received a petition trom many citizens ot Mar tinsdale, some of them leading Demo crats, asking for the immediate pas sage of tbe McKinley bill. Sharks Exposed. It is reported from Washington by special telegraph that congress will unearth and abolish a bold scheme nowjbemg practiced by some sharpers in Washington, who are swindling thousands of settlers on public lands in Minnesota, Dakota and other Northwestern states. There are some 200,000 undelivered land patents on file in the general land office.^ These are cases where claims have been proved up, patents allowed and reg istered, but the patents never called for. Some patents bear date prior to the war and their owners have prob ably forgotten their existence. A firm of land attorneys having gained access to the files in the land office are secur ing the names of patentees and loca tions of lands. They then send to the owners, reciting the absence of the patent and falsely alleging an invali dite title, offering at the same time to Becure and forward title for $5. In many cases they Intimidate patentees by threats of loss of lands. It is esti mated this firm has cleared $100,000 up to date. Their scheme has been discovered, however, and a resolution has been offered in the house calling upon the secretary of the interior for the facts in the case. An investiga tion will probably show "crooked" work somewhere in the land office and several officials' heads may drop. The Vanderbllt Deal. Prominent railroad men say that it is more than probable that the Vanderbilt interest will obtain con trol of the Great Northern at the election in a few days. The Vander bilts now reach the Pacific coast by New York Central, Michigan Central to Chicago, Chicago & Northwestern to Omaha and a traffic arrangement with the Union Pacific to San Fran cisco. 'This is not satisfactory and the Vanderbilts contemplated extend ing the Dakota division of the Chica go & Northwestern to the coast. Recently Hill found difficulty in ob taining money to extend his road to the coast owing to the fact that since the road has been built through Northern Dakota and Helena it has not paid. Negotiations were entered into with the Vanderbilts and they will raise the money needed to com plete the Great Northern to Puget sound. The route from Chicago will be via tbe Chicago, St. Paul & Omaha, tbence by tbe Great Northern to Spo kane Falls, thence by the Seattle, Lake Snore & Eastern, on which road the Great Northern has now ninety days' option of purchase. The Chica go & Northwestern will be extended to San Francisco, connections being made at Spokane Falls with the Great Northern by the line from Southern Idaho. This would be carrying out the plan of extending Hill's lines to both Puget sound and San Francisco. Public Land Surveys- Senator Casey of North Dakota and Senator Power of Montana have in troduced bills providing for the sur vey of public lands in their states. Senator Casey's bill calls for an ap propriation of $300,000. Tbe com pensation is to be $9 for standard and meander lines per mile $1 per mile for township lines $5 for section lines. Provision is made that in the mountains or especially difficult coun try to traverse these rates may be in creased to $13, $11 and $7, respec tively. For tbe Montana service $250,000 are asked, and the price to be paid surveyors are $9 for standard lines, $7 for township lineB and $5 for section lines per mile. As the country is especially mountainous and rocky in large tracts of the Montana public lands, a provision is made that the rates may be increased to $18. 15, and $10, respectively. A Sad Casualty. Marengo, a little town twenty miles distant from Ashland, Wis., was the scene of three singular fatalities a few days ago. Anton Foraker was chop ping at the base of a tall pine tree. As it toppled and fell to the earth his two boys, aged 5 and 7 respectively, ran directly under it and were crushed to death. This was in tha morning. In the afternoon a little dwelling oc cupied by Ole Hanson, a Swede chop per. was found to be ablaze. The mother was nowhere about the house. The father at work near by rushed in through the burning door and grabbed up the cradle in which he supposed his 6-months-old babe was lying. He got outside again, but was very badly burned. He set the cradle down" and began examining his wounds. When the house was a"mass of smoking ru ins he turned to take the baby from the cradle, but the cradle was empty. The babe had been burned to death in the house. The Irrigation Commission. Several parties interested in irriga tion went to Huron, South Dakota, on the 28th inst., to meet the United States irrigation commission and to confer with them relative to the adoption of a system of irrigation by means of artesian wella that will prove practical in South Dakota. Tbe members of the commission are Col. Edward S. Nettleton of Washington, superintending engineer of the United States irrigation survey in the field, ProL Robert Hay of Junction City, Kan., chief field geologist Prof. E. 6. Culver, of the South Dakota state university at Vermillion, geologist of North and South Dakota Prof. S. G. Updyke, of the state agricultural col leg Soi eta Da ing sio: cor ing gat the wel gre Th I 1 caj pei bo tic thi on th ca of fully 4.UUU journeymen carpenters. The two arbitration committees of new boss carpenters association and strikers met at the Grand Pacific ho tel with judges Driggs, McConnell and Tuley, and after a session of three hours length, settled the last detail. The journeymen achieved an almost •weeping victory. They made con cessions on but two points and every journeyman carpenter throughout the city was jubilant over the result. The only disappoint ment was that the stubbornness of the old association has left its mem bers wholly out of the final deal. It is reliably stated the document signed in the presence of three judges provides that eight hours shall constitute a days work, to begin at S a. m. and end at 5 p. m. The noon hour may be curtailed by special arrangement between the foreman and a majority of the workmen, but not in such a way as to permit more than eight hours work between the hours named. Over time shall only be allowed be tween certain stipulated hours at night. A minimum rate of wages has been fixed that thirty-five cents per hour up to August 1st and thereafter at thirty-two and one-half cents per hour. Overtime is to be rated at time and a halt, and Sunday time as doubia time. In tbe matter ot ap prentices concessions were made by both parties. Employers agree to employ only union men, even for fore men required to work with non-union men. The Anderson Tragedy. The Anderson tragedy at Minneap olis a few days ago has aroused the greatest possible interest at Carthage, N. D., where the murdered man and his wife ate so well known. It seems that the two became acquainted as far back as 1881, wh6n both lived in Britt, Hancock county, Iowa. Mrs Anderson was then Miss Lucy Sloper and the acquaintance Boon ripened into an engagement, Not long after Anderson went to Carthage and took a place as clerk in the general store of his half brother, Gunder Lerm, who now lives on a farm two miles east of there. Miss Sloper went there in 1883 to teach school, bringing with her good references. In the spring of 1884 Anderson and Miss Sloper were mar ried and lived together at Caithage tor nearly two years before removing to Minneapolis* Anderson bore a good name and everyone who knew him speaks in terms of the highest praise of his char acter and actions. His father and mother, who are aged peopis, live near Carthage now, and are highly respected people. His mother is now prostrated by the shock of her son's sad end, and is not expected to sur vive. Her illness is the reason why none of Anderson's relatives have gone '.o Minneapolis to take charge of his remains. The Race Problem. Gov. Gordon of Georgia, recently addressed a convention of representa tive colored men from different states. The convention had previously pass ed resolutions reciting the injustice done their race, and asking the gover nors and legislators of the Southern states to protect them, and express ing their disbelief that there is any so lution of the race problem in emigra tion. Gov. Gordon reviewed the leg islation gince the war in order to show that the whole purpose of the radical party in dealing with the negroes had been political and not humanitarian or philanthropic. He took up the statistics which show ed the real increase in the education of colored children since tbe Southern white people came into power and the increase of property hem by negroes and then asked them it there was a sensible man among them who thought they could do better^n another coun try. While he felt that it would be a grave error for the colored men, still if they desired to emigrate he should erect no barrier but by all means at his command would facilitate their going. He did not wish them to leave this country, for he felt an abiding aB' eurance that if wise counsel prevailed it would be found better for both rac es that they should remain peaceably in their Southern homes. Lands Released. The United States Senate has favor ably reported a bill which recently passed the bouse restoring to the pub lie domain for settlement under the homestead laws 65,000 acres ot land in the St. Cloud land district, Minne sota, and 135,000 acres in the Eau Claire, Ashland and Warsaw districts, Wisconsin. This land was withdrawn from the market in 1880, that the government might use it for flowage and for building a system of dams for the purpose of assisting navigation 1 in the low water season. This system '8 found to be impracticable, and scheme was abandoned. The seo ary of war recommended these ids be restored the secretary of interior favors restoration, and 3 land is wanted for actual settle int by people living in the vicinity, it is necessary for the dev elopmen the country. WHERE IS HE. ashlngton Quinlan Suddenly eaves Home—Finances in Bad Shape. About 10,000 shares of stock were the 5th inst. bought in for tbe ac unt of Washington Quinlan, amem ir of the stock exchange of New York cy. Secretary Ely, of the stock ex lange, was notified by Quintan's mily that he had disappeared under rcumstances which compelled them believe that bis mind is deranged, otice was given in order that those aving contracts with him might pro ict themselves. Friends of Wash ington Quinlan weie more amazed than anyone. Also at his disap pearance one of them said that his family on Sunday night be came alarmed and requested the police to search for him. His family is a very wealthy one, one brother be ing at present cashier of tbe Chemical National bank, and it is claimed they could easily have settled all claims against him if they knew what was necessary for them to do. Washington Quinlan is said to have been worth $100,000 a year ago and his friends say his losses will not amount to more than $100,000. Be fore the close of exchange 12,600 shares of various stocks were bought in under the rule for his account, but this is understood to be only about one-third of his outstanding contracts. Brokers say he sold 5,000 on Friday last and put out large lines in other stocks at the same time. Killed by a Negro. John Thomas, of Richmond, Va., a young white man, who was tearfully cut by an unknown negro man, died on the 29th inst. from the wound. Thomas and another white man were together at the time of the cutting. Thomas had in his had a bottle of whisky, the cork of which he desired to remove. Not being able to get it out, Thomas stopped a negro man on the street and offered to give him a nickle if he would draw the stopper out. The colored man accepted the offer, and after complying with the re quest demanded the promised reward. Thomas cursed him, whereupon the negro slashed Thomas across the ab domen with tbe knife he had used in taking the cork from the whisky bot tle, inflicting a wound from which th intestines protruded.
