A FOOLISH PLAN
TIs a joy to eat—I welcome my dinner hour
Because I rout indigestion with August FlowerI
Constipation is the result of indigestion,
biliousness, flatulency, loss of appetite,
self-poisoning, anemia, emaciation, uric
acid, neuralgia in various parts of the
system, catarrhal inflammation of the in
testinal canal and numerous other ail
ments that rob life of its pleasures if they
do not finally rob you of life itself.
I bound in the bowels," is a com
mon expression of people who look mis
erable and are miserable—yet who persist
in letting nature take its course."
What a foolish plan, when nature could
be aided by the use of Green's August
Flower, which is nature's own remedy for
constipation and all stomach ills.
August Flower gives new life to the
liver and insures healthy stools. 3

INDICTE I N I I A S W I N ON

Court Says Evidence Wa Obtained
Tinder Compulsion Corporations
siSMust Stand Trial for Violation of
Chicago, March 22.—Sixteen pack
ers as individuals won the legal bat
tle which they have waged for the
last three months in the United States
district court before Judge Hum
phrey and they were freed Wednesday
from prosecution under the indict
ment which charges them with at
tempt to conspire to,violate the anti
trust and interstate commerce laws.
Corporations Ar Held.
The judge released the individual
packers on the ground that they were
entitled to immunity from prosecu
tion, specifically because the investi
gation of the beef industry in 1904
by Commissioner of Corporations J.
R. Garfield^ was in effect compulsion
upon the packers to produce evidence
tending to incriminate themselves—
evidence which later was contained, in
the indictments against them.
The corporations, it is decided, are
entitled to no such immunity. There
are five of these, the Armour Pack
ing company, Armour & Co., the Cud
ahy Packing company, the Fairbank
Canning company, and Swift & Co. It
is probable they will not be tried until
next fall. The maximum penalty
which can be imposed upon them is a
fine of $5,000 for each concern on each
of the five counts in the indictment,
the total amounting to $125,000.
The individuals who are discharged
by the decision are: J. Ogden Ar
mour, Charles W. Armour, Louis F.
Swift, Charles N. Swift, Edward Cud
ahy, Arthur F. Evans, L. A. Carton,
Edward Morris, Ira N. Morris, Arthur
meeker, T. J. Connors, Patrick A. Val
entine, A. H. Veeder, Robert C. Mc
Manus, D. E. Hartwell.
Decision Fa Reaching.
The decision of Judge Humphrey is
regarded here and inWashington as of
far-reaching importance. It means
that a new policy will have to be in
augurated by the bureau of corpora
tions, else every official guilty of vio
lating the law will escape. The fed
eral authorities are apprehensive that
the -decision may mean the escape
from punishment of the officials of
the Standard Oil company, the steel
trust, and the anthracite coal trust,
all of which have been under examin
ation by Commissioner Garfield.

Judg So Designates Contributions of
Insurance Fund for Po
New York, March 24 —That the of
ficers of life insurance companies who
contributed a portion of the companies'
funds to political campaign commit
tees committed larceny is the opinion
of Justice O'Sullivan, of the court of
general sessions. Justice O'Sullivan
expressed his opinion in court Friday
in replying to the presentment sub
mitted to him by the grand jury which
is investigating some of the phases of
the insurance business which were de
veloped by the legislative investigat
ing committee. He held that larceny
was committed by the officers who au
thorized such contributions, and
charged the jury to investigate as to
the responsibility for such crimes. This
opinion is directly opposite to the one
on the same subject which was submit
ted to Justice O'Sullivan by District
Attorney Jerome several days ago.
Replying to Judge O'Sullivan, Dis
trict Attorney Jerome reiterated his
opinion that the acts of the investi
gated insurance officials did not con
stitute larceny, and told the court that
if he maintained his contrary opinion
then it was up** to the grand jury to
seek causa for larceny against George
W. Perkins, former vice president of
the New York Life Insurance company,
who admitted giving political contribu
tions, and against George B. Cortelyou,
chairman, and Cornelius N. Bliss,
treasurer, of the Republican national
committee, as receivers of stolen goods.

panies, which have posed as inde

the Standard. Henry Clay Pierce,
head of the Waters-Pierce company,
after dodging supboena servers for
two months, gave up Monday and ap
peared to testify. The testimony giv
en and the books produced in accord
ance with the decision of the state
supreme court, showed that the Re

Contributions Mot a Crime.
New York, March 21.—The giving
of political contributions from the

mitted to Justice O'Sullivan in the
court of general sessions Tuesday.

Duluth.—The Great Northern road is
making special effort to interest the
farmers of Nonhern Minnesota in the
farm contest prizes that are offered
by J. J. Hill. The conditions under
which the awards-are to be made will
depend on how well tilled and man
aged the farms are Those that are
highest in thes* respects will' get the
prizes, which run from $300 down to
$75 in cash. These three prizes will
apply to seven sections of Minnesota,
and the farmers of North and South
Dakota are also offered premiums in
like amounts. The total offered by
Mr. Hill is about $8,000.
Farmers are to make entries in
April, and the judging will be done
in June, July and August by Prof.
Thos. Shaw and competent assistants.
It is expected that the farmers of the
territory immediately tributary to Du
luth will take an interest in the com
petition and strive to win prizes.
The competition plan that Mr. Hill
has inaugurated will draw much
favorable attention to the countries in
which are located the prize- winning
Ditch Petition Gr nted. *f*
St. Cloud.—The county board has
granted*a petition for a drainage ditch
in the town of St. Augusta, which is
to be Ave miles in length, and is ex
pected to reclaim about 1,000 acres of
land. Several months ago the farm
ers of St. Augusta petitioned for a
ditch similar to the present project,
but of greater length. Some of the
property owners along the proposed
route objected, however, alleging that
the benefits to be assessed were ex
cessive. An appeal was taken from
the order of the county board and all
proceedings under this pi-oject were
ended. Now it is proposed to con
struct a shorter drain and have a re
assessment of benefits, which is hoped
to overcome the difficulties that de
layed the construction of the first
drain. ."'•: '.' ':i^v^f-%•'::.
