AGAIN FAILS TO
Tonnage Tax Measure Meets
Defeat in Senate.
DIFFERS FROM FORMER DILLS
This Year's Offering Would Have Es
ablished New Principle of Taxa
tion In Minnesota.
St. Paul—(Special) The proposal
to impose a tonnage tax on iron ore
went the way of Its predecessors when
the upper branch of the legislature,
by a vote of 40 to 27, decided that
It should not have a place in the stat
utes of the state. Its demise was spec
tacular and the obsequies of a charac
ter that conveyed much. Representa
tive Warner of Aitkin county, its au
thor, who successfully piloted the
measure through the house, was a si
lent witness at its passing, but he did
not indulge In any regrets. "The fight
is not over," was his only comment.
When the bill faded into the gloaming
It marked the temporary passing—and
the word "temporarily is used advis
edly—of an Issue that has featured ev
ery session of the legislature since
1905. Like prohibition tonnage tax
has been a biennial event and half the
legislation introduced had its fate
wrapped up In this particular issue
Tonnage tax has been traded to a
standstill. Once It got by both houses,
but was vetoed by Governor Johnson.
His action, however, did not stop its
relntroduction, nor will its defeat bv
the senate this time head it off two
years hence. That a majority of the
people would not know tonnage tax
If they met it In the road does not
matter—like the poor it is always with
us and will be until the end of time
Popularly it is supposed to hit big
business—in plain language the United
States Steel corporation—and that is
sufficient. The fact that a few poor
devils are dragged in between the
rollers does not count. It is the north
against the south—something many
decry and vehemently deny—but it is
true and the vote each time comes
pretty near being a verification.
That the voters of the state who bi
ennially are witnesses of the struggle
covering the tonnage tax issue in the
two legislative houses are no longer
to be permitted to remain in Ignorance
regarding Its merits and demerits is
more than certain. The general ac
ceptance of the term tonnage tax is
that it is an exaction by the state of
a certain sum of money for each ton
of iron ore mined within its confines,
which is true, and is also in a meas
ure true of the Warner bill, which has
just gone to its death The Warner
bill, however, was different from the
others, in that it constituted a super,
or additional tax, which if adopted
would have established a principle of
taxation new to Minesota. In effect
it was a license covering production
and would have been Just as applica-

ble to the raising of cabbages as to
the mining of iron ore. It proposed a
2 per cent tax on every ton of ore at
the mouth of the mine.
In addition to $500,000 appropriated
by the house and awaiting approval
by the senate for distribution among
the members of the Minnesota-national
guard which saw service on the Mexi
can border, Senator A. S. Campbell of
Austin would give them $65,000 more.
This money Is to cover the period be
tween mobilization on June 16, and
June 30 when the guard was sworn
Into the federal service. The amount
is to cover the difference in pay. Sen
ator Campbell has offered a bill call
ing for the payment of the amount
Next month will mark the close of
calendar day In the supreme court. A
bill Just signed by the governor and
now a law does away with the time
honored term system and makes the
sessions continuous, or as long as
there is business to engage the court's
attention. The law, fathered by Sen
ator H. Sullivan of Stillwater, Is
the work of I. A. Caswell, clerk of the
supreme court, and does away with
delays in the consideration of cases.
Under its workings the practice of
continuing cases from term to term is
done away with.
According to an opinion given by
Attorney General Smith April 19 Is
the last day for the Fortieth Minne
sota legislature to remain in session.
It must come to an end on that day.
Some members would close the ses
sion sooner, but the chances are ex
cellent that it will run to the constitu
tional limit. The bill hoppers in both
houses are choked and it will call for
much work to clear them.
A. F. Telgen of Montevideo, styled
the "silver tongued orator" of the
house and whose lengthy bursts of or
atory are a feature of that particular
body, won out against strenuous op
position when he was granted compe
tent help in the conduct of his inves
tigation of alleged grain abuses in the
state. The fact that his inquliy run
to the several grain exchanges operat
ing in the state and to alleged politi
cal uses of the grain department of
the state railroad and warehouse com
mission lined up the powers that be
against him, but a two-thirds vote
scattered the opposition to the winds.
At the same time the house amended
to death and finally killed a resolution
by Tom Davis of Marshall county call
ing for an inquiry into political re
ceipts and expenditures as they relate
to the various pclitical parties regis
tered in the state Representatives
of all the parties and campaign com
mittees against which the 'resolution
of Inquiry was directed joined hands
In giving the measure Its death swat.
Davis even agreed to pay the cost of
the Inquiry, but it availed nothing.
Proposed approval, which was finally
given, of President Wilson's armed
neutrality policy and the action of
those members of the United States
senate and house of representatives
who backed the nation's executive in
his demands was responsible for the
consumption of a half day of the sen
ate's time. Though the vote was unan
imous at the finish there was a note
of disapproval throughout, and George
H. Sullivan of Stillwater, who backed
Can use them
with slight blemishes
the resolution of endorsement, had tj
throw numerous oratorical fits before
he got by. In effect his resolution was
a slap at the senate filibuster, through
direct endorsement of Senator Nelson,
who voted with the president, and
Senator Kellogg, who had expressed
confidence in the executive. The Scan*
dinavian end of the senate, through
Senators Lende. Rockne and Sageng,
vigorously resented any use of Sena
tor Nelson's name as a club to swat
members of the celebrated filibuster,
and while they won In a way finally
had to capitulate to the extent of en
dorsing a resolution approving the
president's policy and the vote of all
those members of the Minnesota del
egation who stood by the president.
It was thought"that temperance leg

Secretary of State Schmahl has not
registered any open protest as yet,
but he would like to know who omit
ted mention of his department In the
house pocket manual which that body
publishes for the convenience of its
members. All other state departments
have a place in the book, but the
page assigned to the department of
state is blank. Oscar Arneson, chief
clerk of the house, says the omission
was a mistake, but the secretary of
state does not seem Inclined to look
at It in that light.
R. C. Dunn's new good roads act has
passed the house and awaits the gov
ernor's signature. The bill wipes out
the present state highway commission
and substitutes a state highway com
missioner to be named by the gov

made by the house, but they do not
change the act materially.
The house committee has decided
to report both the Harrison and Od

give the representatives an opportu

Ages ago there grew in what are now
the coal regions of the United States,
forests which were richer than the for
ests of today. The leaves and branches
fell to the ground, sank into the soft
soil and gradually became covered with
mud. The pressure, the absence of the
air and the heat of the ground slowly
decomposed the plarit mass and chang
ed it to coal The different kinds of
coal are bituminous, lignite, anthracite
and cannel. The bituminous or soft
coal burns with a rather long and
smoky flame. It kindles very easy.
The color is black, and the coal is
The lignite coal is brown in color. It
often shows its vegetable origin con
taining stems. This coal crumbles eas
ily and gives but little heat, and also
-burns with a smoky flame.
The anthracite or hard coal kindles
very slowly, but owing to the high per
centage of carbon gives a very intense
heat. Its chief use is for household
Cannel coal is black or brownish in
color, it has a dull lustre. Lights read
ily, and burns with a dull flame.* Its
chie'f source is a gas enricher. This
kind of coal is found mostly in Ken
tucky, Indiana, and Ohio.
In summer homes oil is largely used
for fuel. The oils most widely used
for cooking are kerosene and gasoline.
Both of these are obtained from the
thick dark petroleum which occurs as
an under ground liquid in Texas, Penn
sylvania, California and other states.
When petroleum is heated to a very
high temperature heavier oils vaporate
and pass off and condense. From these
oils, vaseline, paraffin or lubricating oil
The most convenient fuel is gas.
There is no waste and practically no
trouble. For steady use It is more ex
pensive than coal, and the thrifty house
wife who does not wish to economize
her own labors would not use gas.
Most of the gas that is used for cook
ing and illumination, is made from dis
tillation of soft coal. Volatile gases
are driven off from soft coal by heat
ing in closed clay-lined retorts which
air is excluded. When the coal is heat
ed to twelve hundred centigrade or*
more, certain substances in It volatilize
and pass thru an exit pipe into a trough
which contains water, called the hy
draulic main. Some of the tarry vapors
which distill over from the coal con
dense in the hydraulic main as a thick
tarry liquid. Other gases dissolve in
the water. Some of the vapors do not
condense but bubble thru it into other
receptacles. The gases that bubble un
condensed and undissolved, pass on
ward to a series of coils or tanks, where
they are cooled and as a result of cool
ing condense and form valuable com
mercial products. Some of the products
though do not condepse. This passes
from the condensers into scrubblers and
purines. It is then ready to be used
for cooking and lighting. One dollar's
worth of gas per one thousand cubic
feet gives one hundred ,seventy thou
sand large calories of heat.
Electricity is the most expensive of
all the fuels. It is very convenient be
cause it can be turned on or off as one
pleases with no trouble. A person us
ing electricity in the summer time will
find it the best fuel to use, as there is
no work connected with it and does not
heat up he whole room.
