[The clover cutting and the corn plow

attention at the same time.

is paying for the us6 of a farm in the
north eentrai states will make the first

man who is paying $4 or $5 an acre for

The'miry Mjasffiesls and thewpoultry
business will neither of them be ever
Overdone in this country. No other
ifftrna-products maintain so uniform and

$ny man owning a farm to devote his

farm work.
When a man has worked hard and
lived economically for fifty years he
should, if a western farmer, find him
self worth not less than $20,000, which
sum is ample to enable him -to live in
comfort for the rest of his days!*"Still
there are lots of men who do not do
this, and they fail for various reasons.
They are given to moving and shitting
around from place to place. They try
their hand at speculating. They do not
try to understand the principles of their
profession. They buy and sell at the
wrong time. They perhaps get an
itching for some office. They foolishly
indorse some paper for a friend. They
raise a scad of a boy, maybe two of
'em, which keeps them poor. And so
it comes that when they get to be old
they could not raise 500 to save their
lives. The trouble is that everybody
nowadays wants to get rich in a hurry
and a general contempt, prevails for the
old fashioned. way of saving 'a- ilittle
each year.
g There is an evil under the -sun' *-the
which old King Solomon nevterrefer
*fed"to when he was sizing up the evils
of his generation, and that is the mod
ern Sunday excursion train, which, un
der the pretense of giving the people a
cheap and harmless outing, is permit
ted by the road officials to degenerate
into an offense against-public and pri
vate morals. Many unsophisticated and
innocent people are induced to.patron
ize these trains and are subjected be
fore their return home to such an intro
duction to the bummy, profane, drunk
en and beastly side of: human. nature
that they never get caught a second
time. The utter helplessness "of the
train officials to handle these toughs is
the most strange thing about it when
the exercise of a little police authority
would prevent the trouble. Every such
train should have a bum car, into
which should be unceremoniously tum
bled every drunk.
Co-operative effort is nowhere more
essential among farmers than when ap
plied to drainage propositions. Few
men can properly drain'their farms in
dependent of their neighbors. Some
timesall too often, in factwe find
some project of this sort which if car
ried out' would prove of inestimable
benefit to the many absolutely blocked
and held up by the mulish opposition
of some one man who would be as
much benefited as any of his neighbors
by the work contemplated. One case
we know of where the reclamation of
over 70,000 acres of the best corn land
in the west has been held up for years
by the continued legal action taken by
just one man owning a tract of land
along the line of the proposed ditch. It
is probable that no man's funeral
would have been more cheerfully at
tended than his by his neighbors.
It will soon be time to cut the clover
hay. It is usually not a pleasant job.
The weather is catchy, the hay gets
wet and browned, if it is put in the
barn or stack in an uncured condition
it heats and becomes moldy and musty
or fires, and if the effort is made to
cure it in the field the leaves are shed
and the best part of it wasted. How
ever, if the weather is fine the best
way is to cut after the dew is off in
the morning, bunch in small cocks to
ward night, turn the cocks over next
morning and stack in the afternoon.
The plan of putting the clover in the
mow just as soon as it is wilted is not
now followed to any extent, as there is
too much danger of spontaneous com

has his troubles as well as those of'us
who have to depend upon Providence
for a water supply. Sometimes the
irrigation of his soil develops so much
alkali that it poisons the land, and ho

then sometimes the
snows fail to fall in the mountains,
and the irrigation streams and reser

that some of his neighbors will take

Alexander, Hyde and Other Officials
ResignMajority Control of Stock
I Relinquished by James
New York, dune 10.Paul Morton,
who retires from the secretaryship of
the navy on July 1, was on Friday
elected chairman of the Equitable Lite
Assurance society. His election marks
the first and most important step in
the reorganization of the society and
was followed by the iender of ihe res
ignations of President- James W. Alex
ander, Vice. President James H. Hyde,
Second Vice President J. Tarbell,
Third.Vice-President-George T. Wilson
and Fourth Vice President William H.
Mclntyre. Mr. Morton, as explained
by Senator Chauncey M. Depewy was
the unanimous choice of the board of
directors of the Equitable.
All of the resignations submitted to
the meeting are subject to the pleasure
of Chairman Morton, and none has yet
been accepted. Just what action Mr.
Morton will take as to these resigna
tions was riot disclosed, but it' was
strongly intimated that-President Alex
ander and Vice Presidents Tarbell.
Wilson and Mclntyre retired with the
belief that their executive- relations
with the Equitable had ended, j,
Hyde Gives Up Control.- ii
Mr. Hyde "divested" himself of the
majority control, but as made clear in
his letter to the board, retains al sub
stantial interest in the society. The
interest to which Mr. Hyde disposed
of his stock number some two score
individuals, led by Thomas F. Ryan.
The price paid for the Hyde stock,
which is to be trusteed practically in
perpetuity, was not disclosed, but esti
mates vary from $3,500,000 to $5,000,-
000. In addition to the 502 shares'held
by the Hyde estate, which includes the
widow of Henry B. Hyde, founder of
the society, and his daughter, Vi,ce
President Hyde is said to hold between
160 and 170 shares, and it is these
holdings which Mr. Untermeyer re
fers to as the "substantial interests."
which his client retains. The men re
quested to hold the majority stock by
Mr. Ryan are former President Grover
Cleveland, George' Westinghouse, of
Pittsburg, and Morgan J. O'Brien, re
cently elevated to the chief justiceship
of the appellate division of the su
preme court of this district.
Victory for Hyde Faction.
The selection of Mr. Morton, in the
opinion of those who have followed
events, is in the nature of a compro
mise and a victory for the Hyde fac
tion. In any event the outcome was
seemingly a surprise to some of the
members of the so-called Alexander
Story of Equitable Trouble.
Mr. Morton's election is believed to
mean the solution of the controversy
which began between the Hyde and Al
exander factions in the Equitable so
ciety some six months -ago. and which
became publicly known in February of
this year. There are charges of irregu
larities and gross extravagances on
both sides, the fight at times raging
with such bitterness as to threaten the
welfare of the institution, which num
bers some 600,000 policyholders, with
assets in excess of $400,000,000 and a
surplus estimated at $80,000,000. Chief
among the cuarges preferred by Vice
President Hyde was that President Al
exander, as a trustee of the Hyde stock-,
was desirous of wresting control from
the estate. On the other hand, it was
charged by Mr. Alexander that Mr*.
Hyde and his friends were conducting,
the affairs of the soqiety without, re
gard for the welfare of the policyhold
ers. It was Mr.' Alexander's contention
ithat the wellbeing of the society de
manded its mutualization, that is an
actual voice by vote in the affairs of
the society by every policyholder. Mr.
Hyde agreed to the plan of mutualiza
tion, and in the meantime suits against
the society were begun in this and
other states resulting in various forms
of litigation. The plan to mutualize
the society was recently defeated or
stopped by decision of Justice Maddox,
of the supreme court of this state.
i There were also charges of "syndi
cate operations'' made by President
Alexander against Mr. Hyde and some
of his associates on the board of di
rectors of the Equitable, and in reply
to this Mr. Hyde stated that Mr. Alex
ander had participated in the opera
tions. As a result of these revelations,
an investigating committee was formed
in the Equitable directorate, headed by
H. C. Frickj The committee presented
a voluminous report, which criticized
practically all the leading executive
officers of the society. The report was
rejected, whereupon Mr. Fjiek and his
associates on the committee, with the
exception of Brayton Ives, resigned
from the directorate, as also did half
a dozen others. The proposition to
elect a chairman of the board of direc
tors with plenary power to organize
the society in all its branches was then
determined upon, and resolutions were
adopted calling for a complete change
of policy in the executive and financial
department. Mr. Morton's, selection
under the conditions named will effect
these reforms. ..'n-,
