mJ" 4MJ I I It New Ulm Review ^Wednesday, January 25,1905. is a While the concensus of opinion re* garding the decision of the jury sworn to pass judgment upon the fate of Dr. Koch, seems to have been that it would disagree, it is evident that the disa greement was not brought about so much by the evidence as by prejudice. This was emphasized by the action of John Mack who was out of the court room less than an hour when he came to the Review office and cancelled his subscription. This may have been the action of an unprejudiced man but it does not look that way. There are two features in connection with this case, laying aside all else, (hat should have made an acquittal certain, the purely circumstantial evi dence and the failure of the state to connect the circumstances. There was, to an unprejudiced mind, more than a reasonable doubt. This doubt belongs always to the accust d. Did he get itV State aid for good roads is nearing the stage of action in Illinois, and Minnesota will not be far behind. Among the leading states Minnesota is backward in legislation for good roads and the convention held last week should be an incentive to the legislators to provide a better public road system in the state. There is money enough spent every year on roads, which, if properly distributed, would give the state excellent high ways. A sad fate seems to await the revolutionists in Russia unless some influence intervenes more powerful than the unfortunate peasants. If the Jews, who have some terrible wrongs to avenge, take advantage of the present trouble and furnish the sinews of war, there may by a different government in that despotic empire, but alone the poor people are fighting a losing battle, the soldiers of the Czar will soon compel them to lay down their arms. In conducting the trial of Geo. R. Koch, accused of the murder of Dr. Gebhardt, Gen. Childs has shown himself to be a man who refuses to stoop to the tricks and subterfuges that characterize many attorneyst and in the estimation of all he has proven himself a man of honor, protesting against wrong of any kind and seem ingly anxious that right only shall triumph. He is in every sense a man, and in his selection as prosecutor, the county is to be congratulated upon the good judgment of Judge Webber. r- The State Federation of Labor council will soon be held at Minne apolis to consider needed labor legis lation that will be asked of the present legislature. Among the more impor tant legislative measures that will 3ome up for consideration is a bill providing for the organization of free employment bureaus under the direc tion of the state in every city which has a central labor body. Duluth, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Winona, Manka to, Red Wing, St. Cloud, Little Falls, Brainard and Stillwater will proba bly be included in the list. Wiscon sin now has a similar law which makes provision for the operation of labor bureaus under the state's control. The man who says that the editor of this paper left the city because he was afraid to face anything that the state had to bring in the case against G. R. Koch, lies. Three things took the writer out of the city a few hours last week: Business that had been long neglected, an attempt to identify a person who was sending threatening anonymous letters and, last but not least, a desire to see his aged parents whom the lies and distortions of facts that Mr. Liesch has sent broadcast, has brought almost to the border of distraction. The state had five wit nesses for impeachment that they could use when it closed its case. Why didn't it use them? Liesch evidently judges all men by himself. CALUMET Baking* Powder complies with the pure food laws of all states. Food prepared with it is free from Rochelle salts, lime, alum and ammonia. :^v -XT Minnesota did the best thing possi ble when she returned Moses Clapp to the United States senate. The state gains nothing by the constant chang ing of men at Washington. Those who are there are the best posted in the manipulating of forces that make for the best welfare of the state and a new man is for a long time a loss to the interests of the state he represents. Mr. Clapp has merited the substantial endorsement the state legislature has given him in the face of a very stren uous opposition. v,» \, We fail to see wherein the judiciary of this state can be benefited by a raise in the salary of the office. If there is any assurance that with a higher salary as a temptation better men will be elected to the offices, a raise would be welcomed, but we are of the opinion that the present judic iary of the state is about as good as it is possible for the people of the state to expect and this applies to the years that have passed. If there is to be any raising of salaries we would like to see the salaries of the legisla tors fixed at a sum that will be an in ducement for the best men to seek of fices, not that this county has not a good representation, but there are counties that are not represented by the best men, by any means. We would like to ask our brethren of the press in Redwood Falls if the wave of religion that has passed over that section of the country has made any difference in the way the people have paid their debts, especially their subscriptions. The practical test of a man's sincerity is in the way he can cels his obligations. "Pure religion and undefined, is that which visits the widows and orphans in their afflic tion" and we might add, seeks to pay all just debts. Are they doing this in Redwood Falls? If they are then we would like to live in that city. If it is doing this for the people of Red wood Falls then the money that went to Mr. Sunday is a good investment that should multiply with more than compound interest. S id One of the sadest, strangest and most unexplainable things that have transpired for sometime in this neigh borhood is the suicide of the young editor of the Arlington Enterprise, A. C. Wallin. In the morning of life and in the dawn of a business career thao had all the promise of the most brilliant success, at the age of twenty two years, he shot himself through the temple and his young life went out to meet its reward. Suicide, like mur der is usually based on some motive and in this case there is no motive known. Age and its infirmaties some times revolt at the prospects of the few years that are before it and love thwarted and broken sometimes wrecks the ambition and ends the lives of men disease and the lurking shadow of an undiscovered crime send some men to the great beyond but in this case there appears to have been noth ing of the kind and only the opposite in the life of the suicide. What must it be if a man at the age of twenty-two tires of living—not one-third of his life period covered. Is it cowardice or bravery or is it selfish, for the sor row it leaves in its trail darkens the lives or loved ones who are innocent ly connected? Life's prospects may be dark, they are to most of us at times, but man was given his days to live out and they are not his to short en as he wills and leave its purpose all unfulfilled. Bee a Meat The methods of the beef trust, which is keeping the price of cattle as low as the price of beef is high, are being thoroughly aired in the proceedings which the government has brought to have the trust dissolved. Attorney General Moody, in arguing the case before supreme court Monday, gave the following summary of one of the trust's little devices for keeping down the price of cattle: "In the seventh paragraph of the petition it appears that the defendants have agreed upon this device: In pursuance of the conspiracy among Trust Baking Powders sell for 45 or 50 cents per'pound and may be iden tified by this exorbitant price. They are a menace to public health, as food prepared from them con tains large quantities of Bochelle Baits, a dangerous cathartic drug. themselves, their agents bid up the price of live stock at certain selected points to an abnormal point. This naturally induces the shipment from other states of live stock to the points where the price is bid up in quantities much larger than under normal con ditions. Then, taking advantage of this congestion of the markets, they refrain from bidding against each other in the purchase of live stock, with'the result that the producers and owners of the stock are forced to sell at ruinous prices. Thus the unlawful conspiracy to refrain from bidding against each other is made doubly profitable,.and the great profits which come from the transaction in turn in crease the power of the combination and tend to fasten upon the people a monopoly. The conspiracy in this case is auxiliary to the conspiracy to refrain from bidding and to the cre ation of a monopoly which this whole case discloses. It is alleged in the eighth para graph that, for the purpose of aiding in the raising, lowering, fixing and maintaining of uniform prices for fresh meat, the defendants collusively restricted and curtailed shipments of meats to various markets throughout the country. The word "collusively," fairly interpretated, means that they curtailed shipments by agreements with each other. --Doubtless, such a transaction sometimes may be entirely legitimate. This condition is recog nized in the degree, which exempts from its prohibition the curtailing of shipments made in good faith to pre vent the congesting of the markets. NEW ULM STONE HARDEST KNOWN Government Chemist so Characterizes Product of Local Company. "The hardest quartzite We have ever tested and its toughness also above the average." This -.is the way the bureau of chemistry of the United States department *f agriculture, good roads division, characterizes the rock quarried by the New Ulm Stone company. There is a good roads convention in St. Paul this week, and the local concern was planning on makeing an exhibit. There is also a conven tion of concrete and cement users in Minneapolis at the same time and the company wanted to be represented there. So it decided to send a sample of its product to Washington and have an analysis made and put this analysis in printed form with the ex hibits, The result has been more than was expected. The determinations made by the chemists show that the New Ulm product is the best crushed rock on the market for the making of roads and concrete work. The percent of hardness as given by the chemtst is 17.8, so far the hardest rock ever examined by the department the percentage of wear is but 1.6, the best wearing rock ever tested by the government. The cementing value of the rock when wet is 42, which is close to the maximum. In the report by the chemist these remarks were made: "This sample is the hardest quartzite we have ever tested, and its toughness is also above the average. Like all quartzites the cementing value is low, but by wet grinding it rose from 3 to 42. This indicates that used in road construc tion it should be rolled wet, using plenty of water. It should do best under a heavy traffic.'' The company has sent samples to the two conventions already mention ed, and W. C. Miller, the local mana ger, is now in the Twin cities adver tising the stone. Dr. John Baasen, who for the past few years has been located at Eau Claire, Wis., and who has been in this city for the past two weeks visiting his relatives, leaves this week for the pacific coast where he will engage in the practice of dentistry. In leaving Eau Claire Dr. Baasen left a good practice and in coming to this city stories followed him to the effect that he was coming here to locate, but such is not the fact. While here he received a letter from a friend in the city he has left to the effect that detectives have been there looking up his record and trying to connect him with the murder of Dr. Gebhardt, nothing came of the matter as he was in Milwaukee at that fcim3. He was a classmtt 3 and room mate of Dr. Koch and has been a constant visitor at the jail since the latter's incarceration. -, „-. ., •'u Lent Will Be Late This year.

The funeral of John Berg was held from the Catholic church Friday and the bereaved sons and daughters have the heartfelt sympathy of the commu nity in this double sorrow that has CDne upon them. Lees than two weeks ago they laid their mother to rest and now follows the husband and father. Having been united in life through many years of changing fortunes they are again united in the land of the un known. They were both types of the best citizens and fulfilled their duties to their family to the best of their ability and to the honor of themselves and the community in which they live. The world would be better off if there were more such people as Mr. and Mrs. Berg, and their death is a loss to-the city, as it is a deep bereave ment to the relatives of the family. jc* A DANDY EQ» BURNS. -V,,-.
