THE ELEVATOR LAW.
In two weeks more the act of the leg
islature regulating grain elevators in
this state, designed by Gov. Nelson to
meet the complaint of the farmers of
the state of unjust grades, dockage and
weights, will go into operation. Its
effects will be closely watched by all
parties. It has two aspects, its prac
tical business side ami its political side,
lt will thus attract the attention of the
men whose business it affects, the farm
ers and the elevator men, and it ill be
watched with solicitude springing from
another motive by the politicians.
To the elevator men it presents the
practical question of transacting their
business under it. Can they receive
grain for storage and become respon
sible for the delivery at any future lime
of the quantity and quality called for
by their tickets, for the storage charges
fixed by the commission? Can they
safely become responsible for the de
livery of the grain received at some
terminal elevator, with their judgment
as to the grade and dockage of the
grain subject to revision by either the
official inspectors or the managers of
the terminals? Will it pay? If they
decide that they cannot safely or profit
ably transact their business as regu
lated for them by the state, they wiii
undoubtedly refuse storage of grain,
and confine themselves to buying, in
which ease the law will not apply to
To the farmers the act presents also
the practical question of a remedy for
the complaints which, justly or not,
they have been making for years against
the elevators and their methods. If
they can store their grain and order its
delivery at the terminal elevator—gen
erously omitted from state regulation—
they will have relief from whatever of
local extortion may have been practiced,
and be subjected only to the tender
mercies of the terminals, if, indeed, the
local elevator shall have their grain or
that of a similar grade in the terminal.
If, however, the local elevator manager
should determine that he did not wish
to engage in a storage business, but
preferred to buy the grain outright,
then the farmer will look in tha act in
vain for any provision which will pre
vent undergrading, or excessive dock
age or false weights. He will find him
self exactly where he was before the
law was enacted.
If this should be the case, he will
doubtless recall the assurances given
him last fall on the stump by Republic
an spellbinders that "if" tliere were
any wrongs in the grain trade their
party was capable and certainly would
provide ample remedies; and, if he
should conclude that, if this was the
best that party could devise for him, it
was just as well to try a change and let
some other master mechanics of law try
their hands at the job, he could hardly
The politicians will watch its opera
tion, too. On the Republican side there
is a governorship and a senatorship
bound up in it. It is an open secret
political quarters that Gov. Nelson is
to run again for his present office, and,
winning that, to contest the senatorship
with Senator Washburn. If his ele
vator law fails to bring the relief prom
ised, he can hardly expect the farmers
ot the state to continue their confidence
in him as a constructive statesman. If
his act, with the unfortunate omission
from control of the terminal elevators,
does not affect elevators buying grain,
but only the smaller concerns that have
to store grain, and thus does not touch
the evils complained of, his road to the
state house next year will be a rough
and thorny one. The "governor's bill"
is thus a heavily freighted craft, enter
ing on untried, and possibly tumultuous
A BAD LAW— ENFORCE IT.
The GLOBE opposed the passage of
the anti-scalper bill. It did this from
no antipathy to the railroads, nor from
any friendship for the scalpers. It be
lieved the law to be a gross abuse of the
power of the state. The railroads used
that power for their advantage rather
than their own powers. The scalping
business was the outgrowth of unfair
and unjust railroad methods. They
sought to retain the profits of those
methods by crushing the scalper, who
made a profit from them and served the
traveling public at the same time. We
exposed the subterfuge of putting the
conductors forward as the promoters of
the bill by showing that behind them
were the companies, who had drawn the
bill and whose lobbyists were pushing
it. We believe the provision which
punishes with fine and imprisonment
the citizen who should sell his unused
ticket is a gross violation of the liberty
of the citizen to sell what he has bought
and paid for. It is a thoroughly bad
But it is in the statutes, It is, for the
present, the law of the state.' The
quickest and surest way to get rid of it
is to enforce it. Arrest every violator

him or her, make an arrest at once aud

the fullest. If a ticket agent of any
company refuse forthwith to redeem the
unused portion of a ticket, mulct the
company in the fine imposed.
We have enough and too many dead

without adding more. Make this law. a

the Republicans are somewhat previous
in launching their next spring's cam
paign. As there is no earthly chance
for the election of another so-called re

as well start out now and have a long
time enjoying themselves with their

their realizations so little that they will

"While so many politicians and states
men are glibly voicing their views on
the financial, situation, has any one
heard a peep from Marcus Daly or other
men of that class?" The query was put

thoroughbred," he continued, "who
knows his gait and goes it of his own
accord. . I have heard Mr. Daly say that
the. day will come during his life when
silver will be in high favor on its
merits. He is an exceedingly well
posted man on all questions touching
mining and finance, and he takes no
pains to conceal his opinion that there
is not enough gold in the world, or
likely to be discovered, to bolster up the
claims and hopes of the monometallists.
Having reached this opinion, Mr. Daly
is not wasting any time fretting over

because such a report may have a tend

the other hand, there is a large class
who will take issue with him unless he

uot realize it. Out these things have
their effect one way or the other in the

ings where fire cuts off the usual means
of escape, says the Chicago Tribune.
He writes as follows:
As a means of preventing calamities
such as occurred at the fair 1 submit a
rough drawing of* a device that seems
practicable to me. I offer it for what it
may be worth to humanity.
Encircle a building or block of build
ings with a rail (iron) attached to the
outer walls just under the cornice;
upon this rail grooved wheels . are
placed, and from the wheels wire ropes
or ladders are hung, they being con
nected with the wheels in such a man
ner that they may be pulled in any
direction without throwing the wheels
off the rail.
When a fire occurs the ropes or lad
ders may be swung to any part of the
building by the firemen, or others
below. Should flames appear from
windows while a person is descending
the lower part of the ladders may be
drawn away from the wall and clear* the"
danger without much, if any, risk.
The ladders could also be used by the
firemen in carrying up their hose.
When not in use the ropes or ladders
may be swung to the rear of the build
ing and out of sight, while the rail at
the top would not disfigure the archi
tectural beauty of the structure.
THE NEW GRAIN LAW.
Sidney M. Owen Discusses the
Situation at Length.
We not infrequently see, in Minnesota
country papers, statements similar to
Owing to tlio intricate provisions of the
new grain law, many elevator managers and
owners are refusing to store gram.
And so, the inference Is, they will not
be compelled to comply with the law.
After a perusal of the rules and regula
tions recently promulgated by the state
railroad and warehouse commission, for
the understanding and enforcement of
the Jaw, it is hard to blame any man,
whether wheat buyer or seller, for get
ting as far away from it as possible.
There is no censure of the commission
in this; it probably made its interpreta
tions and "directions for taking" just
as plain and brief as possible; in fact,
its work seems to be a marvel of con
ciseness and brevity, when the law that
made the work necessary is considered.
But how senseless is the whole matter
of regulating the wheat traffic by law.
after all. When the law has declared
how many pounds of wheat a bushel
shall contain— and that is not necessary,
for wheat should be sold by the pound
or hundred weight— and has made it
impossible for transportation companies
to rob the public, it had then better "let
nature take its course" than to smother
the traffic under a multitude of enact
ments, interpretations, rules and regu
lations, as is now the case. Wheat is
one of the staplest products of the
world; it is both necessary and harm
less; the world must have it, and it can
by no possibility do the world any harm
after it gels it. Of all articles of trade
and commerce there is the least neces
sity of hampering its movements by
hindering law. If it were as mischiev
ous as whisky, as destructive as dyna
mite, as dangerous as a pestilence, or as
slippery as a thief, it would be both
natural and necessary to keep wheat
under the watchful eye of officers of
the law, and be ever devising new
enactments wherewith to fetter its
The character and usefulness of
wheat, and the appetite of the human
race establish beyond doubt the fact
that what wheat requires in its market
ing is absolve freedom. Under that
reign dishonest weights, unjust grades,
excessive dockage and other skulldug
gery would largely disappear. Freedom
of market means the injection of the
element of competition into the busi
ness of buying and selling, and that
means death to combines, list orice and
other existing abuses, that the "new
law" does not even seem to be aware of
the existence of. Then some scheme
must be devised to knock out "grades,"
which will at once sound the death
knell of option gambling, for without
a recognized "contract grade" no gamb
bling is possible.
But .time will prove this to be true:
As long as lengthy, complicated laws
are enacted to regulate tne marketing
of wheat, laws that require voluminous
explanations and interpretations before
they can be understood or complied
with, just so long combines, "list"
prices, elevator rings and gambling pits
will flourish and multiply on the face of
the earth.— Farm, Stock and Home.

Cheap Rates Among Southern
Roads — ihe Western Situation.
Chicago, July 18.— The Illinois Cen
tral, Louisville & Nashville and Queen
& Crescent lines have joined in a call
for a meeting to be held here Thursday
of this week for the purpose of consid
ering world's fair rates. The roads are
not in favor of putting down the rates
any more than can be avoided, and the
meeting will probably spend more time
considering the ways and me.ins of pre
venting the advent of cheap rales into
their territory than it will spend in the
consideration of cheaper rates to the
world's fair. Tne Southern roads have
been kept very busy of late in hand
ling their summer tourist business, and
as long as they can do a large business
at the present rates, they naturally see
no ieason for immediate reductions.
The proposal of some of the Western
roads to establish one-fare rates, as out
lined yesterday, is booked to meet
some decided opposition wheu the
meeting convenes Friday.
THE MOWING CONTEST.
WORLD'S FAIR FIELD TRIALS AT
TWO CONTESTANTS ENTERED.
The McCorraicKand Whitely Com
panies Do Their Best Work—
The Judges Will Present a Re
port and Award Prizes in a
Chicago, July 18.— The world's fair
field trials of mowing mochines took
place at Wayne, 111., today on the farm
of M. W. Dunham, one of the most
prominent farmers and stock importers
of the Northwest. More than usual in
terest has attached to these contests or
trials owing to the attitude of many of
the world's fair exhibitors in refusing to
participate because of the expense and
the short notice giveu to competitors.
Some days ago nearly all the mower
and reaper exhibitors at the world's
fair united in a letter to Chairman
Thacher, of the committee on awards,
declining to participate and deprecating
field trials generally as an undesirable
experiment, not calculated to attain the
object sought. Despite the position
taken by these exhibitors, however, the
field trials were ordered to proceed ;
and when the judges assembled here
today various prominent manufacturers
had their representatives on the
ground, although the only mowers en
tered in the contests were those of the
McCormick Harvesting company, of
Chicago, and the William M. Whitely
company, of Muncie, Ind. The repre
sentatives of the McCormick company
were E. K. Butler, general manager;
K. B. Swift and Cyrus H. McCormick
Jr. The Whitely company was repre
sented by John Whitely, L. D. Schafer
and J. C. Basset. The trials were care
fully conducted, and the methods of the
judges were generally approved by
those in attendance. The judges were

acre, and the machines entering the
trials were required to be selected in
discriminately from the regular stock of
the companies. The teams of the stock
were selected from the stock on the
farm of Mr. Dunham, although partici
pants, had they desired, might have
furnished their own teams. In the draft
trials the ludges, of course, selected a
single team and driver for all.
The weight of the McCormick and
Whitely mowers were about equal— o3o
to 635 pounds each, and by lot the
Whitely machine was accorded the first
An area of one acre was surveyed off,
and the five-foot bar Whitely machine
cut this one acre of timothy in exactly
thirty-two and a half minutes. Five
stops were required to be made in order
to clear the bar of clogging grass.
The McCormick five- bar ma
chine next entered tho trial, and cut
one acre of timothy in exactly the time
required by the Whitely mower— 32)4
minutes. This was somewhat of a sur
prise to the spectators, but the McCor
mick mower was co npelled to stop
to clear the bar on but one occa
sion, and this was duo to the impedi
ment ot a rusty spike which caught in
the sickle and broke out one of the sec
tions. Tne appreciable differences be
tween the two trials were that the Mc-
Cormick mower made less noise while
in operation, was so gauged as to cut
much closer to the ground, and at the
conclusion was not compelled to turn
back to "clear up" any spots that
had been missed in the last round. The
next trial was with the "Big Four" Mc-
Cormick machine. This is a seven-foot
bar mower, and weighs about 750
pouuds. The Whitely company did not
compete in this trial, as no seven-foot
bar machine is turned out by the
Whitely company. Very favornble
comment was elicited by the "Big
The Side Draft
was very slight, and the exertion on the
horses seemed but little greater than
when drawing the five-foot bar machine.
One acre of timothy was cut in twenty
six and a half minutes, as compared
with thirty-two and a half minutes for
the five-foot bar machine— an advantage
of six minutes for the seven-foot bar
The dynamometer, or draft test, was
one of the most interesting features of
the day, this test being made in order
to determine the relative power re
quired-to haul the machines while in
operation. The dynamometer is a clev
erly devised machine which registers
the average draft resistance in drawing
the machine through 100 feet of timothy
—three tons to the acre. In the first
test of the seven-foot bar McCormick
machine the draft resistance was 210
pounds, or 30 pounds for each foot of
the seven-foot blade. In hauling the
same machine over the same distance of
stubble the mower in operation, but, of
course, cutting nothing— the dynamom
eter registered 115 pounds. The second
test registered 160 and 136 pounds re
spectively, and tiie third 187 and 1i2)4
The first test of the five-fool bar Mc-
Cormick mower registered a resistance
of 135 pounds while mowing hay and
102 pounds while being drawn over
clean stubble. tThe second test regis
tered 135 and 115 pounds respectively,
and the third and last 140 and 112)$
The first test of the Whitely five-foot
machine showed a resistence of 175
pounds in timothy and 122 pounds in
the clear. The second test registered
180 and 124'.j pounds per foot ana the
third and last 199 and 133 pounds.
This closed the field tests, the general
advantage, of course, being accorded to
the McCormick mowers, altnpugh the
Whitely machines well sustained the
reputation of their manufacturers.

clusions today, but will present a de
tailed report to Chief Buchanan, of the
agricultural building in a few days.

REAL ESTATE TROUBLE.
A. Mankato Sheriff Arrests Two
Dealers on the Charge of Fraud.
During the afternoon yesterday Sher
iff W. J. Glynn, of Blue Earth county,
arrived from Mankato. Accompany
ing him was his deputy, D. T. Bowen.
The two paid their respects to the
superintendent of police and im
mediately set to work to find the four
men for whom they had warrants.
They had very little to say at first, inti
mating that there was nothing of im
portance attached to their visit here.
Later on Mr. Glynn admitted that he
had warrants for the arrest of four
prominent Minneapolitans for complic
ity in au alleged fraudulent real estate
transaction. On being pressed he
finally stated that he was looking for
Archibald McDermid, George L. Har
rison. John li. Lewis and L. D. Kil
bourne. At 5 o'clock he had found
only the two first named, but
expected to have all in time to
take the 7:30 Omaha for Mankato"
The men, he said, had been indicted
for grand larceny, being charged with
foisting on one Turner, a resident of
Amboy, Minn., a lot of almost worthless "
real estate in cxc hange for his stock of
goods. It was learned the men had
represented to Mr. Turner that the real
estate consisted of lots in Sandy Lake
audition, near Columbia Heights, when
in reality they were in an addition of
the same name up in Anoka county,
many miles from the place, lt is also
alleged that one of the four made a
trade of the lots in Sandy Lake for a
stock of goods.aud that Harrison figured
in the deal by agreeing to buy the lots
at a stated price, giving the appearance
of a chance to convert the stock into
cash; that after the other man bad ob
tained the goods Harrison refused to
take the lots.
lt was stated at a prominent business
oftice iii the Boston block that these
cases are among actions against those
who had a baud in platting the Anoka
county Sandy lake property, and that
it is understood that all of the parties
connected with the platting and mort
gaging of the lands are indicted at Man
kato. including the civil engineer who
laid it out into lots. It was stated that
the Blue Earth county parties have
pooled their cases with others who have
been taken in in other localities, and
will push them to tho bitter end.
The sheriff and his prisoners left last
evening for Mankato. They were to go
in the afternoon, but the officer waited
to accommodate Mr. Harrison. The lat
ter was accompanied by an attorney
and by plenty of bouds lor his releaso
when he gets there.
