DOOM OF THE TICKET AGENTS

LABGE SAVING TO THE EOADS
It Is Expected Their Revenues Will
Be Increased Enormouwly, Which
Meansi » Corresponding; Decrease
to the Many Thousand Aftents to
Whom I< Has Gone—Seventy-Six
Roads Are in the Agreement.
The order of the railroad executives
abolishing commissions was received
yesterday in circular form by all the city
ngents and brokers. The agreement was
announced several days since, but the
formal order, to take effect Feb. 1, had
not been circulated. . The notice re
ceived yesterday was signed by repre
sentatives of seventy-six roads covering
territory extending from Maine to the
Pacific and from Minnesota to Florida.
All the lines centering In St. Paul are
represented. Over 13,000 ticket agents,
general agents and traveling passenger
agents, all personally interested, will re
ceive copies of the official notice.
This is the wording of the Western
"Effective Feb. 1. 1900, and thereafter,
the railroad companies subscribing here
to will not Cinder any circumstances pay
any sort of stipend or consideration of
any character to ticket agents, brokers
or others for their influence or as a com
mission on sale of passenger tickets over
The message from the Central Passen
ger association quarters has these words
"The undersigned companies hereby in
dividually and collectively respectfully
give notice that, effective Feb. 1, A. D.
1900, they will discontinue all ticket-com
mission payments, side cuts and any and
all other forms of gratuity or allowance
in connection with the sale of a passage
ticket or tickets for, or via, their re
spective lines to and between all points
in the territory bounded by the Atlantic
seaboard on the east and by a line drawn
through Chicago, Pcoria, St. Louis, con
tinuing and lollowing .the Mississippi
river from the latter point to and in
cluding New Orleans, or via said West
Before inaugurating the proposed pas
eenger pool of all the roads in the coun
try this anti-commission agreement will
be given a thorough trial. Reports as
to its maintenance will be submitted to
the joint meeting of the railroad presi
dents with the interstate commerce com
missioners, to be held in New York on
March 7. If it is found that some of the
weaker lines are losing business the for
mation of the pool will proceed and each
road wiil be allotted a regular percentage
of the business*
The revenues of the railroads will be
increased enormously by stopping com
mission payments, but the ticket agents*
at large commercial centers will be se
vere suffeii'is. The income of some
' of these men from commissions amount
ed to more than the "salary paid to gen
eral passenger agents. Scalpers will find
it hard-worki now .-to.: make a .living.
The practice of paying commissions
long has been considered the main cause
for the rmi.-uniU' demoralization in pasr
The circular will, have the effect of
tightening up the making of commissions
at once, though several of. the city
agents interviewed yesterday stated that
there was some doubt whether under
Etress of business., the-circular can be
maintained in effect. It is pointed out
that when business begins ■to increase
after the present lull, the fight for traf
\ fie xviU recommence, with the effect that
it wiil be difficult to carry out the spirit
and text of the agreement.
The Soo line has not agreed to the ac
tion of th-' «x..:eutives-of-the other lines
and the signature of a Soo representa
tive cannot be found on the circular. A
St. Paul official of the line gave out the
information yesterday that commissions
are still being paid by both the Soo and
the Canadian Pacific. Some idea of
what the action will cost the ticket
agents is gained from a statement made
yesterday by a local railroad man.
"Do you know what commissions mean
in a city such as St. Louis or Chicago?" h»
asked. "J. have, seen,the,^.checks which
a.gents in such cities have received and
I want to state'that their" profits from
this line of business will average month
ly two,. Jhrecand in some,, cases four
time* their regular salary, I have known
agents who received as High as $pOO a
month from commissions alone. In the
instance of which I speak the agent's
salary aniouuted to but $150. The same
has. no doubt, held "true in St. Paul and
Minneapolis With due allowance for the
comparison in population."
REFUSES THE REQUEST.
Railrond Commission Will Not Sanc
tion KitiNe in Lumber SJalcs.
A decision was filed by the railroad and
warehouse commission yesterday in the
matter of the petition of the Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul, Minneapolis & St.
Louis, Groat Northern and Northern Pa
cific for . permission to advance lumber
rates one cent per hundred. The com
mission holds that the testimony entered
by the representatives of the roads in
terested at a conference held Wednesday
i la not sufficient to make good and directs
that the desired permission be not grant
Notices of the result of the hearing
were sent to the freight agents of the
roads petitioning for the raise. The de
cision was not accompanied by a memo
randum, but, in commenting upon their
action, several of the commissioners ex
plained that the arguments made by the
railroads were weak. One contention was
to the effect that permission to raise rates
should be granted for the purpose of
equalizing state rates wittu those Eslsz
and South. Another argument which was
given prominence was the well worn
statement ih;it with an advanced cost of
transporting freight the railroads should
be given a share in the general prosper
ity. The commission holds that while
business conditions are improved and
prosperity is more general throughout the
' state, and while it is admitted that the
cost of transportation has increased, the
railroads are carrying a larger business,
which is sufficient to compensate for the
difference in cost of carrying between a
year ago and now.
WILL NOT PRESS IT.
N. I*. Doesn't Intend to Force Itself
I poii Seattle-
President Mellen, of the Northern Pa
cific, returned yesterday from New York,
after an absence of several weeks. The
action of the Seattle cliy council, in re
jecting the company's offers for im
provexnents at that point, did not come
as a surprise to Mr. Mellen, and his state
ments Indicate! that the position of the
company is determined. If the people of
Seattle don't want Northern Pacific im
provements, the Northern Pacific does
not intend to force them on the city.
The executive officers of the road pro
fess to be satisfied with the outcome of
the negotiations. Mr. Mellen indicates
that the Unfavorable action of the Se
attle city ("imcil was anticipated and
did not materially change the attitude of
the president or directors, who had de
cided to expend a large sum of money in
tha eon.templa.ted improvements lv case
the cviiy was willing, and, if not, to let
thi!iST» move along In their old way. Mr.
Mellen's statement concerning ihe Seattle
situation is as follows:
"The decision adversely to the ro.id did

Minneapolis & St. LonU Getting the
The new Omaha service over the Min
neapolis Sr. St. Louis will be commenced
Sunday night. In anticipation of the
event General Pasenger and Ticket Agent
A. B. Cutts is issuing all sorts of no
tices and spreading abroad not a little
advertising mutter of novel and original
form. The most interesting of these
notices to the public is in the shape of
a card, fix" inches in size, which bears the
words "Minneapolis & St. Louis to
Omaha—the New Line—lt Pulls the Mis
souri river thirty miles nearer the Twin
Cities." The picture illustrating thi3
remarkable feat is a bird's eye view in
colors of the two cities and the territory
intervening between them and Omaha,
while, with one foot planted on either
of the twins, a gigantic brownie is tug
ging at a rope which, with a grappling
iron on one end, has pulled the Missouri
river and Omaha out of their place and
"thirty-five miles nearer the twins." The
rope forms the line of the Minneapolis
& St. Louis to Omaha. The Dcs Moines
line is spliced on at Fort Dodge, and the
Chicago line at Albert Lea. The brownie's
body is made of the Minneapolis & St.
Louis railroad trade mark. The design
was executed by "Bart."
The card has been used as a private
postal and also as a general advertising
card and notification to agents, the time

ST. LOUIS, Jan: 25.—General -Manager
Ramsey, of the Wabash railroad, today
denied certain' statements that .have ap
peared in print in regard to the situation
growing out of the"-recent demands-^pre
sented by employes. He said:
"Contrary to these reports, I have not
promised the men composing the griev
ance committees that their demands I
would be complied with, nor were the,y
made any concessions whatever. I ad
vised the men to return to work, and
they have done so, with my promise that
their grievances would be fully consid
ered, but no specified, time was set for
this President Ashley old not notify
Chief Arthur" that I would satisfy the de
mands of the men; merely that they
would be considered. He has left the
matter entirely in my hands, expressing
his approval of what had been done.
CENTRAL HAULING FLOIR.
Getting So Much That Other .RoaOs
Begin to Wonder.
Minnesota Transfer reports show that
for the past ten days the Wisconsin Cen
tral has been getting a large dli«re of the
Minneapolis flour products for shipment to
the Eastern seaboard ports. A rumor was
current last week to'lhe effect that the
road had made a secret rate on flour and
a meeting was held yesterday in Minne
apolis, to inquire into the matteF ana
come to an adjustment. It is alleged that
the Wisconsin Central has made a rate
of 6 cents per hundred, while-The normal
rate is 6 S-10 cents. For the past ten days
Central shipments through the transfer
have averaged 100 cars of flour a day.
The Omaha-has met the cut rate, pending
an adjustment, but the other roads are
still charging full tariff. -

into service between herp and Houghton,
Mich., the running time between Chicago
and the Twin Cities will be reduced two
hours. The North-Western put on a fast

FAVORS CHEAP WHEAT
GRAIN WEEVIL AN EARNEST EX
HORTER TO FARMERS NOT TO
HOLD THEIR WHEAT
CRUSADE ON CHINCH BUGS
State Entomologist Logger Will Be
gin in a Few Days to Intrench the
Farmers of the State Against the
Hordes of Insects— HcHslan Fly I«
Worst Feared—Rotntion of Crops
an Excellent Preventive.
Prof. Otto Lugger, of the University of
Minnesota, is already preparing for the
spring campaign against pestiferous grain
eating insects. Of these the Hessian fly
is the most to be dreaded. Next in order
is the chinch bug, a blood relative of
the cimex lectularius of the third-class
In 1599 the Hessian fly (cecidomyia
destructor) was not so prominent as to
create great excitement, or absorbing in
terest. Yet Prof. Lugger said to a re
porter for the Globe that it was esti
mated the fly had done a million dollars'
worth of damage in the state of Minne
"Minnesota is not renowned as a win
ter wheat state," said the professor, "and
yet to this very fact is due our compara
tive safety from the ravages of the Hes
sian fly. Were more winter wheat raised
there would be more flies. Ordinarily
there are two broods, or generations,
which appear in May and June and later
in September and October. They resem
ble mosquitoes, dusky in color and about
one-eighth of an inch In length. Four
years ago they appeared in great num
bers in Minnesota, but, fortunately, many
of them were killed out by parasites. Of
these parasites there are three different
kinds. If we raised winter wheat, as they
do south of us, there would be two broods
of the fly in one season, and, consequent
ly, more damage. Our one crop of spring
wheat is a great defense against this in
"Throughout the western portion of our
state the Hessian fly is common, and not
alone where both winter and spring wheat
is sown. In the Red river Valley it i 3
most abundant, where only spring wheat
is grown, and it is difficult to understand
how this insect can exist under such con
ditions. Were it single brooded an ex
planation would be simple. It seems to
have found a permanent home in Western
counties, extending from Jackson, Cot
ton wood and Pipestone in the south to
parts of Manitoba. In the Red river val
ley it has caused losses from 5 to 25 per
cent on many farms."
"What are the remedies?"
"There are several. So far as protec
tion of winter wheat is concerned late
sowing is recommended. This furnishes
the fall brood, which issues in September
and early October, nothing upon which to
deposit its eggs, or if deposited, it is too
late for the larvae to burrow to a safe
place in the stem to pass the winter.
"Burning the stubble has been found
to destroy mar.y of the maggots, and the
'flaxseed.' The 'flaxseed' stage takes its
name from the great resemblance be
tween the puparium and the seed of flax
in size, color and form. Again rotation
of crops often leaves the adults writh
out wheat plants on which to deposit
eggs, so that when wheat is again sown
the flies are all dead in that vicinity. In
reality it is a starving out process. Pas
turing early sown wheat in the fall is
likely to destroy large numbers of mag
gots and 'flaxseed.'
"The chinch bug," continued Prof.
Lugger, "has been of immense damage
to Minnesota farmers. Weather and
health conditions of the insect 'are im
portant factors in: fighting the pest."
There are torpedo boats and torpedo
boat destroyers. There are chinch bugs
and chinch bug destroyers. Upon the
latter Prof. Lugger is now actively em
ployed. He manufactures a "disease"
which he distributes among the farmers
throughout the state, a specimen of
canned disease which, under certain con
ditions, is most destructive. The pro
fessor showed the Globe reporter some
of the spores of this death dealing dis
ease. It is manufactured from original
germs secured from diseased chinch bwgs.
To secure it many scientific processes
are gone through. Spore in any quanti
ty can be made, canned and distributed
throughout the state at a moderate ex
pense. Its success depends .on . the
weather and physical condition of the in
-1 sects. As human beings are predisposed
to certain diseases, so also with the
chinch bugs. They will contract the
disease sent among them much more
readily in damp, rainy weather than
in bright, dry, sunshiny days. One chinch
bug successfully inoculated will spread
the disease through the entire swarm,
and if, as before stated, conditions are
favorable, they will all die off. Chinch
bugs begin on young corn and drift
by millions into small grain fields.
The weevil is not an outdoor insect.
It is far more sedentary in its habits
and confines its malignancy to grain
stored in bins, elevators and mills.
"The market price of wheat," said
Prof. Lugger, "has much to do with the
propagation of the weevil. This may
sound like a singular statement, but,
as a rule, it is true. When grain is low
in price it is held in store by farmers
and this affords the weevil a most fruit
ful pasturage. There are two kinds of
weev il_the Oriental or rice weevil, and
the common grain weevil. Their habitat
embraces the whole globe. They are
most numerous in warm regions. In
flouring mills they have proved a great
annoyance, as many of them have been
ground into the flour. While they are
not poisonous, their wings are really in
digestible, even ground to powder, and
nearly as injurious to the human sys
tem as ground glass. Chatine is a word
designating the fundamental material of
hair and finger nails. The basis of the
weevil's wings is chatine. Some millers
have complained the millstones were
leaded when, in reality, the trouble re
sulted from the grinding, with the wheat,
of the glassy wings of the weevil. When
a human body Is exhumed it is found
that the hair and finger nails have not
decomposed. It is thus with the wings
of the weevil. They will not decom
Duluth & Northern Earnings.
The Duluth & Northern Minnesota filed
a gross earnings statement for the past
calendar year with the railroad and
warehouse commission yesterday, show
ing earnings of $41,287.81. As the line is
a new road, it comes under the state law
requiring only 1 per cent gross earnings
tax for the first three years. The state
will receive $412.88. The earnings are
sworn to by .Ralph N. Marble, of Du
luth, assistant gefeeral manager.
