some time. Awhile ago a farmer of thisi
vicinity wrote to both the Great North
ern and Northern Pacific roads asking
for rates on a car of effects to the coast.
One road replied promptly, and after
wards the other wrote saying that as
rates had been given quotations wero
unnecessary. This .simple incident shows
that the roads not only have an .agree
inent as to rates, but are as fully ill ac
cord as though they were under onej
management. hen the interstate com
tnerce commission was created it was
thought that the prevention of t-uch
deals and discriminative rebates would
be its especial care, but the faet is that
railroad business, at least in the north
west, was never so rotten with deals and -,
rebates as it is to day.

South Dakota, introduced a bill provid
ing for the payment to the individual
states ofper cent, of the amount re
ceived by the government from the sale
of public Iandin the boundaries of these
states befere they were admitted into
the union as states. The older states
received such a distribution of the
money received from this source,but Jhe
newer states, such as the Dakota^, have
never received their .share. Senator
Gamble says that the public lands in
South Dakota were nearly all disposed
of by the government before its adaiis
sien as a state, and in the event his bill
passes the state will receive about flOtV
