DEMAND FOR MENCARDINAL
IS HEAVY Estimated That Over 12,000 Hands are Needed for Har vest Fields. REPORTS, HOWEVER, THOUGHT TO BE EXAGGERATED. Many Laborers Taking Advantage of Special Rates to the West. It is claimed that 12,000 more men are required to harvest the spring "wheat crop in Minnesota and the Dakotas Some estim ates of the number of men need ed are as high as 17,000. This is in addition to the supply of labor on the ground at all times in the Northwest. Reports received in Duluth and the Twin Cities are to the effect that 7,000 men are required the territory traversed by the Great Northern and 5,000 in the region tributary to the Northern Pacific. Men are also in demand on the lines of the Burlington, Soo and Milwaukee roads. If reports from the wheat country are to believed, harvest hands are wanted by the train loads. Wheat cutting will be general this week in North Dakota, particularly in the south ern part. Wages range from $2 to $3 a day and board. Harvest rates went into effect last week and many have taken advantage of them. Special trains may be run to transport men to the wheat belt. It is thought that reports sent from the west as to the number of men needed are exaggerated. The farmers are desirous of getting as many men as possible to the -harvest fields, to do away with all possibility of a labor famine, and to keep the wages down. ilURORS SELECTED The County Commissioners Have Named Grand and Petit Jurors.
