THE OPPOSITION SUBSIDING Confidence as to Ability of J. J. Hill's Plan is Grow ing in the East. NORTHERN SECURITIES COM- PANY VIEWED IN NEW LIGHT. People Who Bitterly A&sai led Com bination Short Time Ago Now Favorable to it. New York, Sept. 2.The private advices received here by railroad officials concerning crops in the Northwest, show such decided progress that the officials of the roads embraced by the Northern Securities company, now look for a considerably larger traffic even than they anticipated a few weeks ago. The expectation is now generally held by them that corn will turn out a good crop and that the roads will have a very heavy tonnage of grain this year. It is claimed that one of the most satisfactory recent develop ments is the alleged subsidence of opposition to the merger and the growing confidence as to the ability of the plan carried through by James J. Hill. It is asserted that some of the people who most bitterly assailed the com bination no more than a few months ago, have assumed an en tirely different attitude, and are now quite favorable disposed to ward the Northern Securities company. It is pointed out that evidence of the growing confidence, that notwithstanding the legal ques tion overwhelming the form of combination which holds the Great Northern, Nor I hern Pacific and Burlington together in the Northern Securities company, and the belief that the benefits conferred by the combination can be conserved, even though the form should be changed, is furnished by the fact that there has been for some time a satis factory amount of investment buying of Northern" Securities stock. It is said that this has led to a considerable increase in the number of registered stockhold ers, while it is also asserted that some of the original ones have been taking on additional stock. The investment demand is said to have come from all sections of the country and from abroad. According to trustworthy in formation received here, this character of buying has been particularly noticeable in the last three weeks, and it is said that some of the names represent important new interests. Pessimists have been ac customed to argue that an in crease in the number of stock holders in corporations signifies conversely a reduction in the size of the large holdings and that in a way the position of the com pany is weakened thereb3T. seems, however, that in the case of the Northern Securities com pany the selling practically all conies from the same source and does not reflect any change of sentiment on the part of leading interests. Everybody connected with the company here is con fident, and this confidence is gradually being shared to an in creasing extent by the general public.

The close of the brook trout season in Minnesota brings up again the well-known need ,.of a change in the open season of this delicate and lively species of the salmon family. For several years Duluth sportsmen have been agitating the need of a shorter trout season. The north shore trout begin to spawn in August, and fish caught during the latter half of the month are full of spawn as a rule. This is why Duluth sportsmen have been insisting that the season ought to end Aug. 13 in stead of Aug. 31. It makes no difference how early the season is opened in the spring, so long as the fish are given a chance to spawn in peace. WERE MARRIED Mr. and Mrs. J. L.

Bemidji, Sept. 1, 1903. Powdered Milk. Chemists in the department of agriculture are experimenting with a new process for powder ing milk. It is reduced to a flour like substance that still re tains the nourishment of milk and can be kept indefinitely. Skimmed milk, which has been a waste product on the farm, will assume new economic import ance, as it makes splendid powdered milk. If you are mere ly attempting to sustain life, powdered milk will serve very well, but if you want to enjoy life you will use golden grain belt beer. It nourishes the body completely and besides is ex ceedingly delicious as a table beverage. You will be glad to have a case at home. Order of your nearest dealer or be sup plied by John Essler.

In the same way non-residents who obtain big game licenses nlay ship two deer, one male moose and one*male caribou, at taching thereto the four coupons which go with big game licenses.
