ST. PAUL WANTS
Equity Co-operative Exchange
May Move From Minneapolis.
Of Northwestern Crops Within
a Pew Years.
Indications are that the' Equity Co
operative Exchange, the farmers' ter
minal grain marketing agency, wl''
move from Minneapolis to1 St. Paul.
Business organizations of St. Paul
are negotiating with the farmers and
if present plans are carried out the
headquarters of the farmers' co-opera
tive grain marketing movement will
locate in the Saintly City. This means
also that St. Paul will be headquar
ters for the co-operative marketing
movement in various other products
At the big co-operative marketing
convention held: in Minneapolis a few
weeks ago, St. Paul business men in
vited the farmers to locate their co
operative exchange in that city. The
fact that the large volume of grain
handled by the Equity Co-operative
Exchange is sold almost entirely to
mills and buyers outside of Minne
apolis, which would make it possible
for the farmers' exchange to establish
its Headquarters in either city, gave
St. Paul its opportunity. St. Paul
business men see in the Farmers'
Equity Co-operative Exchange an op
portunity to get for St. Paul a good
share of the grain trade.
Movement Grows Rapidly.
It is predicted by men who have
given the matter careful study that
the Co-operative- Exchange will be
handling a large percentage of the
Northwestern grain crop in a corn
paratively few years. The farmefrs ot
Western Canada entered the tenpinal
grain markets with their own a%ency
only a few years ago and are now
handling almost one-half of Cana
annual grain crop. The Equity
operative Exchange has shown that it
can build up a market for grain out
side the Minneapolis Chamber of Com
merce and Duluth Board of Trade,
and with adequate terminal elevator
facilities and fair treatment in bank
ing accommodations the volume of:
grain, handled by the Farmers' Co
operative Exchange is expected to in
crease rapidly. This business cleared
through St. Paul would add mightily
to the Saintly City's trade totals and
subtract just that much from the busi
ness. of Minneapolis.
Farmers Want Open Market.
The farmers interested in the cov
operative marketing movement are de
termined to secure hetter terminal!
marketing conditions. The recent co
operative marketing convention Hi
Minneapolis took steps to carry on the
fight for an open public grain market
and to- reform abuses which they say
have grown up in the grain- trade.
Some of these abuses they proposer to
reform by legislation, others by. cre
ating an open board of. trade, which
will be established in St. Paul in case
the Equity Co-operative Exchange
moves to that city.
Exchange Entirely Co-operative.
The Fanners' Equity Co-operative
Exchange is entirely a co-operative
organization. It is owned' by farmers.
The men in charge of the exchange
work on salary. The profits, over and
ahove the 8 per cent dividend on capi
tal stock, are shared among patrons
according to the amount of grain
shipped to the exchange.
The movement to establish a farm
ers' co-operative grain exchange In
the terminal markets originated among
Equity farmers in North Dakota, but
the movement rapidly spread to other
states and there are now on the board
of directors of the exchange represen
tatives of the principal farmers' co
operative organizations of Minnesota,
North and South Dakota and Mon
tana. The exchange has the endorse
ment of the genuine farmers' co
operative organizations of those four
The farmers' co-operative terminal
grain marketing movement is the out
growth of the farmers' co-operative
elevator movement, which established
the farmers' elevators as important
factors in the local grain markets at
hundreds of points in tho Northwest.
These farmers' co-operative elevator
companies are now carrying their co
operative marketing of grain into the
terminal markets with the purpose of
controlling the marketing of their
grain from the fields to the actual
Three Valley City mites will cele
brate their first birthday on Friday
of this week, and the fifteenth of May.
They are the Gunderson triplets, born
just a year ago, who have been the
object of so much interest in Valley
City during the past 12 months, and
a number of local people are hoping
to make life a little easier for them
on the occasion by remembrances of
various kinds. Just what has been
done will be decided in a day of two.
