Washington, Aug. 21.—Representa tive Rainey of Illinois, .a Democrat, and Representative Austin of Ten nessee, a Republican, fought a wordy battle in t"ie bouse and exchanged bitter personalities. Each had fifty four minutes allotted under a special rule. So bitter was the feeling be tween the two men that a sergeant' at-arms occupied a seat near them in order to prevent danger of a personal encounter between them. Mr. Rainey charged that Mr. Austin was personally interested in water power legislation, that he was one of the incorporators of a big company in the vicinity of Knoxville, Tenn., to be benefitted by pending legislation and that a "well trodden trail" led from the congressional office of Mr. Austin to the offices of the so called water power trust. In a recent colloquy Mr. Rainey as serted Mr. Austin had declared that if he, as a representative, had favored the water power trust he would con alder he had disgraced himself and if Mr. Rainey could produce proof of his guilt he would resign. Dazey Man Believes In Potato Warehouse WILL TELL COMMERCIAL CLUB IN NEAR FUTURE OF BENE FITS TO BE OBTAINED. Dr. W. Nolte of Dazey, who was a visitor in Valley City, is an enthusiast on the good results to be obtained through potato warehouses. Dr. Nolte was one of the chief promoters of the warehouse built by the business men of Dazey and in conversation with local men today, he declares that the facilities for handling potatoes would mean hundreds and thousands of dol lars coming into a community of a season, which would not otherwise. While here, Dr. (Nolte very kindly offered to come to Valley City at any time to explain how funds for the warehouse in Dazey were raised. Sec retary Zetterberg, of the Commercial club, expects to call a meeting of the club in the near future, when Dr. Nolte will address them on the sub ject LAND OPENING. The president and the secretary of the interior have ordered about one and one-half million acres of Indian lands, in the former Shoshone (in Wy oming ), Uintah (in Utah), and Crow (in Montana), Indian reservations, to be sold at public auction by James W. Wltten, superintendent of opening and sale of 'Indian lands, at minimum prices ranging from .50 to $1.50 per acre.

I JOHN HALVERSON •, \-y •Pr" CONGRESSMEN RAINEY AND AUSTIN ALMOST COME TO BLOWS IN HOUSE Sergeant-at-Arms Takes Seat Between Verbal Combatants Ready to Intervene Should Threatened Fist Fight Start. PHONE: 27C-J Night Calls, 93-L and 397-K His Resignation Not Asked. "I do not ask the gentleman to re sign from this body," said Mr. Rainey, delivering a carefully prepared speech. "I do not think," however, that the cause of water power conservation in Tennessee would suffer if the gentle man's connection with the house would cease. The gentleman will be missed if he resisrns, however, by wa ter power lobbyists.y He referred to what he called the "absolute bad faith of all these Ten nessee enterprises," and said he knew "of no better illustration as to what unscrupulous water power manipula tors can do with a water power than the illustration furnished by the Knox ville Power company." "This company," he said, "made the first attempt to deliver the city of Knoxville and all of that territory to the water power trust. It had five Incorporators. The records of the sec retary of state of Tennessee show that Richard W. Austin was one of them, the same Richard W. Austin who now represents the Second dis trict of Tennessee." Holland Separators to Be Made in Iowa LOCAL CONCERN MAKES DEAL WITH IOWA CONCERN FOR MANUFACTURING. Through a deal closed Saturday, the Holland Wild Oats Separator, the manufacture of which was begun in Valley City several months ago, will be manufactured in "future by the. Kloure Manufacturing Company, of Dubuque, Iowa. The demand for the separators has already grown to such an extent that it was found impossible to handle it in Valley City with the limitied facil ities here, and John, Albert and An ton Holland, the heads of the Valley City concern thought it best to ar range for the making of the machines by some concern which could turn out the thousands which will be need ed to supply the demand next year. The Iowa concern will make from ten to "fifty thousand of the separators yearly. Albert Holland, left Sunday for Du buque, from where he will go to Min neapolis, to demonstrate the machine at the* Minnesota state fair. The ma chine which he will show there will be greatly improved over the model shown in this state heretofore. It will be manufactured by the Kloure com pany, which has already begun to turn out the separators, and make shipments. While Valley City loses the factory for making the machines, the city will be well advertised through-them, nevertheless. Every machine shipped will bear not only the names of the inventors, 'but the name of Valley City as the headquarters of the com pany. Phone society news to Society Edl itor, phone No. 4. THE WEEKLY TIMES- e* Mustard Successfully Killed With Sprayer DEMONSTRATIONS NEAR TOWN WILL POPULARIZE NEW SPRAYING COMPOUND. That the farmers of the iNorth* western states may at comparatively small expense rid their land of the pest of wild mustard and other nox ioux weeds, has ibeen demonstrated on on Barnes county lands within the past few weeks, and it is probable that by the time the next growing season is well under way, a large part of the land which is covered with the mustard will have been treated. The first demonstration made in the county was on the land of Fred Schultz, about five miles northeast of Valley City. The sprayer, which scatters a mixture of sulphate of iron, is about thirty feet in length, and dis tributes the imixture in a fine spray, which covers thoroughly, 'both the weeds and grain. (By using this ma chine it is possible to cover in the neighborhood of fifty acres a day. One application of the mixture is sufficient to kill the mustard for one season, although it is necessary to re peat the dose for several years until the pest is eradicated. In another column will be found pictures showing the difference in Mr. Schultz's field where the sprayer has been used, a clearly defined line i'e'ng shown. The photographs were taken by JK O. Hindsly of this city. Wheat and Flour Will Be Cheaper FORMER LOCAL MAN LOOKS FOR DROP IN PRICE OF STAFF OF LtFE FROM BIG CROPS. H. S. Helm, of the Russell Miller company of Minneapolis, and the Northwest, and formerly of Valley City, is optimistic over the' outlook for a drop in food prices during the next two years, according to an in terview given to the press of the Twin Cities last week. This drop in the price of wheat stuffs will be followed by a similar drop in the price of meats, poultry, eggs, and other dairy products, ac cording to Mr. (Helm. In commenting on the probable outlook, he says in part: "Because of the magnificent pros pects ofl the growing crop wheat prices have already worked down 20 cents a bushel in a few months. In consequence, flour prices are 75 cents to 90 cents a barrel lower than a few months ago. "If farmers have favorable weather for harvesting and threshing and this crop is saved in good condition for early market, wheat and flour prices would naturally work to lower levels and it is now practically assured that wheat and flour will be much cheaper than for two years." But the cheaper four and cheaper bread will not be a large factor in the decrease in the cost of living. (Bread is the cheapest thing on the table, and It is to live stock that the country must look for cheaper food that will make a difference. It is said by millers that mill feed may not experience a decrease in price even though wheat is much cheaper. The price of the by-products of wheat de pends on the demand in the dairy sections of New England. The by products are used to a large extent there, and at this time no miller was found who would venture an opinion whether prices would be up or down. FOR IMPROVEMENTS. Enderltn Commercial.

Thomas Brew, a recent arrival from Kansas City, Mo., ran amuck with a razor in the pool hall under the Kin dred hotel last night, after having whipped one man with his fists, caused a panic in the resort and chased the men he threatened to get," out of the building and down Fifth avenue. Brew then ran down the railroad tracks and was later cap tured by Chief of Police Swanson.

The trouble is said to have started over a game of "Kelly pool." Brew "staked" a man he saw playing a good game of pool, the story goes, when a third man wanted to get into the game. The third man proved to be a better player than either Brew or the man he was backing. Brew then charged his protege with "throw ing" the game to the third man and nished by assaulting the successful contestant. Brew left the place after the assault, threatening to "get" both men, and returned a few minutes later with a razor, which he started to flourish in original negro style. Not knowing where the cutting would start and where it would finish all occupants of the resort scrambled to places of safety, and others, includ ing the two men Brew was after, es caped through the door.
