St. Cloud Journal Press: The
Weyerhauser syndicate has at last de
cided to locate ac Little Falls, the
final arrangements having been made
Saturday. The syndicate has pur
chased the Little Falls Lumber Co.'s
mill at that city, owned by Mr. N. P.
Clark, of this city, and Col. E. Bridg
man, of Little Falls, and propose to
erect the coming summer another mill
having a saw capacity of 40,000,000
feet of lumber each season. It is high
ly probable that the company may
build at other points on the upper
Mississippi. St. Cloud would at least
have stood a chance of securing this
enterprise if laud owners had not rais

St. Louis Globe Democrat: The
size 0^ the crop is the thing that de
termines the size of the prices. There
is a demand for a certain amount of
farm products from year to year,
and the prices raise or fall ns the sup
ply sinks below or goes beyond this
demand. The theorists may talk as
much as they please about other influ
euces, 1 ut the question is at last only
oue of quantity. Th« world must
have st many bushels of grain per
year, and it will pay therefore simply
so much as it is obliged to, consider
the available surplus. There is no
process of legislation by which addi
tional sale can be forced when the de
mand has once been supplied it is
not in the power of congress to com
pel purchasers to take more than they
want, or to give more than they are
willing to pay. The fact that the
tfrops of a given year is in excess of
the measure of consumption caunot
be concealed. It is known every
where, and the prices are adjusted
accordingly. When the crops is short
the *ame rule applies,and the markets
are correspondingly affected. If the
farmers could manage to produce only
enough each year to meet the demand
they would always obtain just and
fair prices. It is over production, in
other words, that puts prices down
for them, and they cannot expect to
have prices kept up for them under
such circumstances by any sort of ar

From tA* St. Paul Globe.
The removal of Frederick Weyer
hauser from Eau Claire to St. Paul,
and the establishment of the milling
industries belonging to himself and his
associates on the upper Mississippi are
important movements in the industrial
history of the city and state. A
syndicate including Mr. Weyer
hauser, the members of the Mueer
Lumber company, Mr. Ijiird and Mr.
Morton, of Winona, and others, have
purchased all the timber on land trib
utary to the Mississippi which belong
ed to the Northern. Pacific Railroad
company. This is estimated to
amount to about 300,000,000feet. They
propose at once to establish a mill of an
annual capacity of 40,000,000 feet at
Little Falls, in this state, and under
their contract with the railroad com
pany, are required to build another in
the immediase future, or at least half
that size, at Brainerd. The energy,
and capital of these men have given
them control of the lumber interests
of Wisconsin foi a good many years
and their entrance in our state, it i»
generally admitted, will be followed
by a concentration into their hands of
the milling business of the upper Mis
sissippi. They have great capacity
tor acquiring properly, and will reach
out until the vast track of forest to
tho north are all in their possession.
This means a tremendous increase in
these industries and the growth of the
towns of considerable size in the north
ern counties, and especially along the
river. The mills at the various points
which have been shut down will grad
ually reopen, and the monopoly which
Minneapolis has enjoyed in the field
will at least be disputed, All this
will probably be accompanied by
some railroad building to connect the
new milling towns directly with the
prairie country to the southwest. The
pine of Minnesota will competc with
tho products of the Southern forests
in Kansas and Nebraska, and the
plants and laborers fron the depleted
Wisconsin streams will transfer them
selves to our borders. It is rather
difficulty to predict with accuracy the
complete effect of all these things
but they mean more capital in Min
nesota, a great business actiyity.
Both of these will be good lor the state
and a great jobbing center like St.
Paul cannot fail to profit by them,
In any event, the addition of Mr.
Weyerhauger himself to the number
of our citizens is a great gain, because

LANSING, Mich., March 11.—
harles Sligh, of the Grand Rapids
Hoard of trade, has submitted to a
joint legislative committee a novel
plan for connecting Lake Michigan
and Lake Huron with a ship canal
stretching across the lower peninsula
Michigan near its geographical center.
Engineers hold that the plan is feas
ible, though costly bnt all that it is
proposed to ask of the present legisla
ture is $8,000 for a survey of the
rout. The proposed canal will begin
at Grand Haven and connect with the
Ortonville Headlight: It is ascer
tained as a noticeable fact that every
one of the Alliance congressmen-elect
favors free trade out and out, with no
ifs or ands or buts.
The Minneapolis Tribune has been
sold to a compauy, of which W. J.
Murphy, of fGrand Forks, N. D., is
the head. The sale includes both
morning and evening editions. Mr.
Murphy will be manager and there is
a possibility that ISx-Senrtor Pierce
will be associated with Mr. Murphy
as editor of the morning edition.
Austin Register: The bill, recent
ly introduced, to make the state pris
en the place for all future public exe
cutions in this state, is a good one and
ought to pass. The conveniences for
such work are better at the prison
where a permanent scaffold culd be
erected, and where the curious could
be more easily excluded. Then again
practice makes perfect, even in hang
ing a man, and after one or two exe
cutions the danger of a "botch" job
would be greatly reduced.
American Economist: There are
now begining to appear in the cutlcry

all his energy to urge the frightened

Will it be believed? The gaunt, hun
gry wolves, diverted from the pursuit of
the sleigh, had no sooner surrounded
him than they seemed to regard him aa
a friend. They smelt of him, fawned
npon him with every demonstration of
delight, and one of the boldest aad
fiercest of tbe whole pack, evidently the
leader, offered him his paw as if to shake
hands with him, looked at the sMgh,
now too far away to be overtaken, shook
his bead slowly, tamed about and trotted
