CUT WHEAT AREA Valley Farmers Have Ceased to Be One Crop Men Diversified farming in the Red River valley is now a recognized fact, says Prof. T. A. Hoberstad of the experi ment station at Crookston. What was once devoted exclusively to the raising of wheat is now given over to a divi sion of wheat raising, dairying, vege tables and forage crops. "In the last ten years we have been endeavoring to develop a system of farming for the Red River valley." said Prof. Hoberstad. "We have found that the proper method of rotation is: "First—Wheat, oats, barley and such grains. "isecond—-Grass crops, such as tim othy and similar grasses. "Third—Corn, sugar cane and forage crops in general. "This is the order in which the crops rotate to the best advantage. What one crop takes out of the soil the lvext one returns, and, by a proper system the soil can be kept good for any length of time." "The dairying interests have made a great showing in the valley," said Prof. Hoberstad. "When the station was es tablished ten years ago, there was not • creamery in the country. Now there Ore fifty-one, and a number of cheese factories. "This has brought much live stock Into the country. It is easy to see that without live stock it would be impossible to have diversified farming, which is necessary to retain the present rich condition of the soil."

Dr. Shoop's Restorative CANADIANS BUYING AMERICAN LUMBER British Columbia Dealers Say Home Trade Is Cur tailed A. P. Stephenson. superintendent and general manager of the Moyie Lumber and Milling company, limited, of Moyie, B. C, arrived in St. Paul yesterday" on his way to visit his old home in Chi cago. after an absence of many yean. Mr. Stephenson says that the British Columbia mills are at a distinct disad vantage when competing with the American mills because of the prohibi tive tariff erected by the United States and more particularly because at th^ same time the Canadian government allows the rough lumber from the American mills to come into the prov ince without the payment of duty. In telling of the system and its workings he said: "The prairie sections of Alberta. As siniboia and some parts of British Columbia are simply flooded with Ore gon and Washington lumber and we have our troubles in meeting the prices at which the American product is sold to Canadians. "If Canada has one product of more value at present than any other It is lumber and the Canadian markets are left wide open to American trade. If the dominion government enacted a lumber tariff or if the American gov ernment would remove the present ob stacle to trade in this country our nmr ket in British Columbia would be im mensely wider than it is. Cheaper for Canadians "Then again if the American tariff made any difference in price to the American consumer it would be differ ent but actual figures prove that the Oregon and Washington planks, tim bers and shingles arc sold for less to the settlers In the Canadian, northwest than they are in Spokane or the Col ville country. "The Canadian Pacific is the only real monopoly I know of. That road has the biggest and tightest cinch on British Columbia that I could imagine. The railroad owns more land than anybody ever heard of, and while our company is a large one, the Canadian Pacific possesses in the immediate vicinity of our property more than two and a half times as much timber land as we do. The road fears nothing in the domin ion of Canada, but it has a wholesome respect for James J. Hill and his rail road projects. The new Victoria spur of the Great Northern caused a sensa tion and something of a panic to the Canadian Pacific and the spurs which the big American road is throwing out in the direction of the Canadian Pacific territory has resulted in much uneasi ness to that road. "Mr. Hill and Mr. Hill atone is the object of fear to the greatest railroad monopoly in Canada. "The granting of the right of way of the Canadian Pacific was one of the wonders of modern times. The govern ment agreed to give a certain amount of lands and timber for each milo of track. And the way that track was built was a marvel. Line Is Very Crooked "In Alberta where a" large part of the line of the road was surveyed to run across prairies as flat as a bil liard table the track zigzagged j n a way that wquld put to shame the Rooky mountain loops of some of the railroads that have to run ten miles in order to get half a mile. They shot hither and yon and each mile brought in more good land and timber and made it available for a basis upon which bonds could be issued. "This line is not crooked now. It is as straight as the edge of a ruler, but the kinks were taken out only last year. In one province the main line of the road was shortened eighty miles and only the engineers of the road know how much slack was removed from the line as a whole. "In spite of disadvantages, however, business is not bad and we all are able with a little care to make a living and save a dollar occasionally." Mr. Stephenson is accompanied by William Carey Hay, assistant cashier of the First National bank of Bellini ham, Wash., who is making a trip home after quite a long residence in the Puget sound country. FAINTS IN COURT Young Girl Is Not Able to Withstand Ordeal "Frances Hire, you are charged with larceny. Guilty or not —" The clerk in the municipal court yes terday afternoon stopped short, for the 17 year old girl to whom the charge was being read had fallen to the floor in, a dead faint. Mrs. Hire rushed to her daughter's side, and with the assistance of Pro bation Officer Graves, carried the un conscious girl from the room. Frances was on the verge of a nervous collapse and was taken to her home. Frances Hire, together with Ada Palmer, 16 years old, was arrested last Saturday charged with taking a num ber of small articles from a department store. The Palmer girl was discharged, and the Hire girl's case was to have been disposed of yesterday. Frances Hire seemed to feel her dis grace keenly and wept bitterly when* taken, tp the county jail. Although con fined since Saturday, she has scarcely touched a mouthful of food and spent the time moaning on her cot Yester day when brought into th«- court room the girl was so weak she could scarcely stand and almost gave way when her gaze fell on her mother's, face. Supported by the court officer Frances was brought before Judge Hine, but before the court clerk could finish reading the charge the tired girl had fainted. Judge Hine decided to place the girl under the care of the probation officer- YSAYE STANDS ALONE IN MUSICAL WORLD Violinist Has No Equal and There Is None to Succeed Him It is not likely that any person now living will ever hear the equal of* Tsaye, who will give a recital tomorrow evening at the Central Presbyterian church- There is no violinist upon whose shoulders the mantle of the Belgian seems likely to fall; there is none who seems -worthy to be hailed as his successor.

B S CLCKTT, PEA BODY A CO. jR g M«k«r« ofClaett and Arrow < u!t>r». jSfe KILLED BY ENGINE Frightened Man Jumps In Front of Train Run down by Omaha train No. 61, in the East St. Paul yards, yester day afternoon, David Green, a carpen ter, 65 years old, 677 Sims streei, was terribly mangled by the wheels of the engine and was dead when picked up. The accident occurred a few minutes after 4 o'clock as the Omaha passen ger train No. 61 from Duluth was pull ing into the yards. Green was walking along the track ahead of the train which was concealed from view by a bend in the track. When the engine rounded the turn he was only a few rods ahead. Startled by the screech of the whis tle Green turned around to see the engine close upon him. For a second be stood motionless and then jumped from the track, landing on the rails of another track running parallel to the first one. Had Green remained on the second track he would have been un injured, but bewildered by the sudden shock, he stepped across the rails di rectly in front of the oncoming engine. The engineer brought his train to a stop within a few rods and the train crew hurried back along the track. Green's mangled body was found lying Just outside the rails. He had been in stantly killed. The body was placed in the baggage car and brought to St. Paul. Deputy Coroner Whitcomb was called and ordered the body taken to the county morgue, where an examina tion showed that both arms and legs had been broken. Death resulted from a blow between the eyes that fractured the base of the brain. Green had lived in the city for many years and was well known on Dayton's bluff, where he built many houses. He was married and had two grown sons. The funeral arrangements have not yet been decided on. WANTS MONEY BACK Worthlngton Attorney Repents His Losses at Poker The great American game of poker as played by rules laid down in the Worthington (Minn.) Whist club, was a distinctive feature In a suit submitted in the supreme court yesterday. J. J. Parsons, an attorney, said that he was lleeced out of $665.50 by five lawyers, and now he wants his money back, be cause he was playing according to Hoyle. The rules of the great card authority seemed to avail nothing, however, for Parsons was able to lose his money without any trouble. The defendants In the suit are George W. Wilson, C. M. Corey.. Vere Hurlbert, John Wilson and Martin Levlne. The words "low dive" was the term used by Parsons in describing the club rooms. "Is the court expected to take judi cial notice of what a 'low dive' is?" in quired Justice Jaggard. "It seems to me that the whole pro ceeding is a disgrace to the court," said Chief Justice Start. 'If the facts are as stated, it seems to me that it is a matter for inquiry and disbarment." It was a gang of "tinhorns" that fleeced him, says Parsons. In some games of poker a man has an oppor tunity to play his money like a gentle man, but in this one his' money, nerve and judgment did not do any good. On* Year Was Enough Mrs. Eva Dorsch has begun surt in the district court to obtain a divorce from her husband. Frederick, Dorsch. She alleges that It -took less than a year of marital life to convince her that the temperaments of herself and Mr. Dorsch were not congenial. She was married to him Feb. 10, 1903, when she was 19 years of age -and he was 23. Four weeks later she alleges that he drove her out of the house, and in January of the following year he deserted her. She asks that along with the decree of divorce she be given the right to resume her maiden name, Eva Graske. Mothers' Club Meeting . The Dayton's Bluff Mothers" club will meet at the Van Buren school tomor row.

He was represent ing a Chicago house and was selling groceries from-a wagon over the coun try. Inspector J. D. Fowler went to Winona and secured the aid of the local authorities, with the result that Hargis was soon arrested for a viola tion of the food laws. He was fined $25.

GOOD ROADS BRING BIG TRADE TO CITY Those Affected See End of Long Suffering Through Neglect ■ 'Good country roads* means every thing: to St. Paul: increase, in all branches of trade and more money in the pockets of local merchants." said Dr. T. C. Fulton, legislative represent ative from White Bear, yesterday. "The bill recently passed in the leg islature providing for better roads by authorizing the Ramsey board of coun ty commissioners to expend money ;ii' propriated for roads at their discretion, means merely that road building will be placed on a solid, substantial business basis, that will involve little expense and great efficiency. "The board has been crippled in the past by reason of the fact that it ha«l neither the money nor authority to build the kind of roads that this county should possess. Under the new bill, however, the county will soon have first class roads that will last for scores years entailing in the meantime little expense for repairs. "The bill, while specifying no mate rial, will undoubtedly result in the lay ing of heavy macadam roads. The present macadam roads are of little value, the layers being too light and wearing away under travel and adverse weather. The roads leading to the northwest are not good, due to the fnct that the commissioners heretofore have been without authority or money to lay the roads as they should have properly been laid, and to keep them In repair. No More Dabbling "There will be no dabbling with road making in the future and everything will be conducted on a solid business basis. In the past little stretches of road have been laid here and there, but no continuous road of any quality has been built. The commissioners can now proceed to build roads entire that will be a credit to the county and will be of a quality equal to any In the United States. "St. Paul has lost a good deal of trade that it might have had in the past by reason of the fact that the roads were bad. Farmers with wagons laden with produce destined for the city found it impossible to traverse the roads leading to this city. The wheels sank into the mud and mire and sand up to the hubs frequently, and at th»> least it was a terrible strain on the horses. As a result much of the trad<> that rightfully belonged to St. Paul went to Minneapolis, and St. Paul was the loser. "The gain that the city will secure when the roads are completed will be represented in cash. The produce deal ers will secure greater trade and the money the farmers secure for their produce will be spent in St. Paul. What this will amount to in the course of ten or twelve years cannot be estimated." Representative Alvin Rowe of the Eighth ward, regarding good roads, said: "The county commissioners have now the power to act. If they build the roada as they should be built, laying the macadam thick enough, it will be one of the best things for the city that has ever been done. The roads should be built right to last for years without necessitating repair*. As an Instance of what can be don* in road building, there is the stretch of macadam on Rice street which has been laying now for some five or six years and on which not |1 has been spent for repairs. Roada Are Bad "The present roads to the north are very bad. There is a stretch of good road one mile this side of the Soo rail road crossing, but from there to Anoka county the roads are very poor indeed. A cut at the Soo crossing, near the new bridge, is <ypk-al of the greater part of the road. The road in this cut !■ filled with sand and mud and it is next to impossible to drive throught the cut. The banks to the height of twenty-five feet on either side of the cut were made so that rains wash down the sand and make travel through the cut impossi ble. "All the county roads should be plac ed in good condition, and the highways leading into the city, including por tions of the city streets, should be made as good possible. Under the pro visions of. the new bill giving the coun ty commissioners the power that they sought. I think we will be able to se cure the roads that are badly needed both by the city and the farmers." WILL STAND TRIAL Prisoner's Efforts to Evade Law Are Unavailing Allen McGraw. wanted in Reltraml county for grand larceny in the second degree, will be brought back from lowa to stand trial after trying in vain to avail himself of a technicality in the law which caused Gov. Johnson to take an unusual step. The incident grows out of the trouble in Beaudette. Minn., which compelled Sheriff Thomas Bailey to go to the northern part of the state and send his son. John N. Bailey for the prisoner at Allison. la. The requisition papers had been se cured from Gov. Johnson and had been honored by Gov. Cummins of lowa. At torneys for McGraw secured a writ of habeas corpus to test the validity of the requisition and it was held that the requisition was good. But when John N". Bailey appeared as agent of Gov. Johnson, the prisoner re fused to come on the ground that the son was not the authorized agent of Gov. Johnson. This step caused a de lay and a consultation of the law. John N. Bailey applied to Gov. Johnson for a supplemental order, making him an additional agent, which was granted, and sent io lowa yesterday afternoon. TELEPHONE BILL IS IN LINE FOR FINISH Attorney General Passes on It Favor ably, but Outlook'ls Bad "W. C. Fraser's bill to require tele phone lines to make connections where practical with other telephone lines, re ceived a bill of health from the attor ney general yesterday. Mr. Young, in response to an inquiry from the house held that the Fraser bill is constitu tional. He said that the only question was as to the connecting feature, and that this could be made to conform to the constitution by slight changes in the phraseology. Mr. Fraser tried bard to have the bill made a special order for today, but was unsuccessful. It will take Its regular order, and because of the late hour in the session, its final passage is in doubt. Veterans to Meet The John A. Logan regiment. Union Veterans' union, will meet for the first time in their new quarters In the old capitol building tomorrow evening. Im portant business will be transacted. . PICK NEW OFFICERS Members of Central Presbyte rian Church Hold Meeting The annual meeting of the congrega tion of Central Presbyterian church was held last night and was well at tended. Rev. J. M. Fulton, pastor of the church presided. The election of officers resulted as follows: Elders—R. P. Lewis. E. A. Webb and Webster Smith, reelected: C. F. Forr sell and W. H. Vinson, chosen for the first time. Deacons—A. Cattanaeh. D. C. Mur rjy and William Johnson. Trustees —I* W. Girard and B. F. Osgood. The annual reports generally show ed the chur.h to be in a flourishing condition. The b nevolenees, including home and foreign missions and "the operation of the various boards and departments of the church, were $2,176. The expenses* of the congregation were $8,270. and extraordinary repairs »nd_ miscellaneous expenses totaled $3.")7r>. The receipts from all sources were slightly greater than this amount and left a small balance in favor of the church. • SECRET WELL KEPT Size of Omnibus Appropriation Known Only to Few Subcommittees having in charge the omnibus appropriation bill have prac tically completed their work and it is expected that they will report bacic to the main committee today in time to introduce the measure in the house Fri day morning. There are still several matters to be arranged which cannot be completed until some time this aft ernoon, probably too late to offer the measure this afternoon. Much speculation has beei^ caused aa to the probable amount which will be included in this bill, but there has been no opportunitj to get a line on the re port, 'for the reason that aft" air of strictest secrecy Is maintained. It is assured that the bill will call for an unusually large sum. even if some of the pressing interests are turned down completely. If all of the demands made on the committee are allowed, the. to tal will likely set a new high water murk for such lump appropriations. FAVORS MORE PAY FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICES House Judiciary Committee Will Rec- ommend an Increase Increased salaries for supreme and district court judges were voted by the house judiciary committee yester day. The original bill provided a salary for the chief justice of $6,500. The committee recommended it be placed at $6,000. with $5.i00 for the associate judges. The compensation of the dis trict court judges was fixed at $4,200 a year, an increase from $3,500. In Ramsey. Hennepln and St. Louis eoua ti^s the counties will make up the dif ference between this amounf and $5. --000. the amount now paid the judges. Formerly the counties contributed $1. --500 to each of the district court judges. Cream Below Standard A total of ninety-five samples of food products were examined by the dairy and food commission this week. Of the list there were four samples of so-called "evaporated cream," all of which were found to be illegal. They were classed as condensed milk by the chemists. The department is making a special examination of the evapo rated cream. It does not analyze as high in butter fat as it should. The manufacturers will be compelled to take it off the market or label It as It analy7.es. Showcase Broken P. J.

DECISION REVERSED Air Brake Company Scores a Point in Suit With Road In a decision in the appeal of the Westinghouse Air Brake company against the Kansas City Southern railway company, in the federal court of appeals, it was decided that a rem edy at law is no bar to an action in equity, the decision of the United States circuit court for the western district of Missouri being reversed. The case is the outcome of the fore closure of the Kansas City. Pittsburg & Gulf railroad company, in which the air brake company appeared as inter vening petitioner. On April 1, 1893, the Gulf road was mortgaged to the State Trust company of Missouri to secure a $23,000,000 bond issue. On April 6, 1899, a bill whs exhibited In the circuit court and a receiver ap pointed for the road. In February. 1900, the Kansas City road purchased the Gulf property In the foreclosure. Previous to this the Gulf road had pun-hased from the Westinghouse company air brakes and signal ap paratus valued at $32,316.11. on which at the time of foreclosure there re mained due $23,587.26. Of this amount $12,318.21 was due on a bill for ma terial purchased after the mortgage was negotiated and $11,271.05 for ma terial purchased prior to this. The Westingtiouse company inter vened in the foreclosure in June, 1899, alleging both a statutory and a prefer ential equitable lien on the mortgaged property and asked that the claim be paid from the proceeds of the sale. The Kansas < 'ity Southern road denied this, and the case was heard before the master in chancery, who held that the Westing-house company had both liens on the property to the extent of $11, --271.05, the amount of material con tracted for by the Gulf road prior to the mortgage. The Kansas City South ern road objected on the grounds of multifariousness. and the Westing house company chose the equitable Hen as ground to proceed upon. The Kan sas City Southern then answered and stated for the first time that the Westinghouse company had adequate remedy at law on its mechanic's lien and that by filing its statement for that lien it had waived its claim for a preferential equity lien. The circuit court sustained the claim and dismiss ed the intervening petition of the Westinghouse company. The circuit court of appeals finds the lower court in error, in that grounds for an action in a state court are no bar to an action in equity, and remands the case back to the lower court, with instructions to enter a judgment for $11,271.05 in favor of the appellant, with interest ana cost and to pay from the proceeds of the sale of the property in question if the judg ment is not satisfied. BOUNDARY WATERS TO BE UNDER FEDERAL CONTROL Fuller-ton Hopes to Bring About Game Law Reform ■We hope to be able in time to place common fishing waters under federal control, and thus avoid much friction,' said S. F. FuHerton, agent for the state game and fish commission, yesterday. "This Is something much to be de sired, and I think we are now on the road to success." Mr. FuHerton attended the meeting: of state wardens in Chicago, where the matter wag taken undex consideration. The question of fishing in boundary waters has always given the wardens much trouble. The jurisdiction is what the states have" never been able to agree on fully. •'We have boundary waters that have caused us much trouble with Wiscon sin." said the commissioner. "All states have the same trouble. With the ques tion in the hands of federal officials, there would be no question raised as to jurisdiction." The Chicago conference prepared a memorial to congress, asking that the federal government take charge of boundary waters. All the wardens were in favor of the idea. Canada has such an arrangement and it has proved very satisfactory. NEW INCORPORATIONS The Miller A Holmes company of St. Paul filed articles of incorporation with the secretary of state yesterday.
