The Week [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
The Week VOL . XIII . NO . 2 The first week of the new year is made notable by the cheerful tone which prevails in nearly alk lines of enterprise . The books for 1897 have been balanced and tliey have shown a condition of affairs most gratifying . Full-fledged prosperity , after so long a period of depression , cannot quickly be achieved , but we have on every hand evidences that the movement is steadily . toward better feeling ; that new courage is felt in many lines of production , and that capital waits on enterprise . In another place in this paper is a review of general conditions , more particularly as they relate to agriculture , which indicates how widespread is improvement as compared with one year ago . The figures there shown will not fail to inspire greater confidence in the future , and give reasonable assurance that enterprise properly directed will meet with a fair measure of success . The most conservative will admit this much . Many insist that the outlook is one mo...
Where the Honey Goes [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Where the Honey Goes Writing from New York under date of December 30 , 1897 , W . E . Curtis says in the Chicago Record : There is more idle money in New York looking for investment than ever before in the history of the country , and to-morrow the amount will be increased from $ 125 , 000 , 000 to $ 150 , 000 , 000 in interest and dividends payable January 1—the largest sum on record . Everybody will be pleased to welcome these evidences of returning business activity . Companies which for years have paid no dividends have earned large ones during the year just ended , and we see the results in the transfer of hundreds of millions of dollars to the pockets of stock and bond holders . From what source comes the larger share of this great improvement ? From agriculture . The Northern Pacific railroad , for instance , shows a gain of 120 per cent over 1896 , and this very largely because of the enormous crops which were raised from one end of the great transcontinental line to the oth...
Close of the Big Wheat Deal [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Close of the Big Wheat Deal After all the excitement occasioned- by the great wheat deal in which Joseph Leiter became the owner of 8 , 000 , 000 bushels of high-grade wheat , and the veteran P . D . Armour and his fellow bears were compelled to rake the country over to secure this enormous amount to fill the contracts they had made , the deal was closed on Friday noon , December 31 , without a ripple on the surface , the day on Change being entirely devoid of incident . This was because of Mr . Leiter s absolute good faith . He might have ruined many a short had he sought to send prices upward on the closing day , but he did not raise his hand to maintain prices , and the shorts were permitted to bear the market and some of them to settle on the basis of lower figures . Mr . Leiter had said he was not in the grain-gambling business ; that he was a grain merchant , engaged in legitimate trade , and the fellows who laughed until their sides ached when he made this statement months ag...
Against Annexation [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Against Annexation In a note to the editor , Alden S . Huling of Kansas writes as follows concerning the Hawaiian question : I am glad to note your expressions against the annexation of Hawaii . It will add a multitude of new subjects of legislation to the work of our already overburdened congress ; it will lead to an enormous and practically unlimited expense for fortifications ; it will add immensely to the importance of our already too arrogant naval and military aristocracies ; it is contrary to all our traditions to take control of outlying possessions at such distance from our continental territory . It is not imaginable that for generations at least a state or states can be made of these islands . But to my mind , far and away above every other consideration is the conviction that the people at this time controlling the islands and negotiating for annexation are a handful of usurpers , and that the voice of the mass of the people has never found expression on this subject . T...
Our Consul at Shanghai [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Our Consul at Shanghai Consul-General John Goodnow , who was appointed by President McKinley in the face of the protests of the good people of Minneapolis because of his bad personal record in the divorce courts and his open life of shame , has endorsed all that was said against him by going over to Yokahama , Japan , and marrying a woman known as Elizabeth Beaver , notwithstanding that he took to China with him as his wife a certain Belle Gordon . Referring to this , a Washington correspondent tells the following story : When Goodnow went up to the white house to ask for the Shanghai consulate the president undertook to lecture him and admonished him concerning his reckless habits of life . A few years ago , said the president , you were one of the most popular , prosperous and promising young men in this country . You had a fine business , a beautiful home , a happy family and a multitude of friends . To-day you are bankrupt , without occupation , in the divorce courts and have al...

Practical Co-operation [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Practical Co-operation A professional man once remarked that farmers are the only people who are perfectly willing to give to others all the secrets of their profession . We thought of that observation last week as we sat in the rooms of the Supreme court at Springfield , and listened to the papers read and addresses delivered at the meeting of the Illinois State Horticulturalsociety . There were men from Michigan , Iowa , Missouri and Indiana , come long distances to meet their brethren of Illinois and talk together with them for the common good . No professional secrets , no petty jealousies , no envyings , in that assemblage . If one told of unusual success the others were glad with him ; if another told of obstacles that he had not been able to overcome , a dozen were on their feet to give him helpful advice out of their own experience . Those were hearty and wholesome looking men and women that gathered there in that great and splendid chamber of justice . They talked of nature...
The Civii Service [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
The Civii Service The civil service law is being attacked in congress and an attempt made , not to correct the mistakes which are inevitably incidental to so important a change as the present law involves , but to secure its repeal and return to the old spoils system in which a pull was worth more than all the ability which might be encompassed in one man s brain . The platform adopted by the Democratic party in 1896 contained the following plank : We are opposed to life tenure in the public service . We favor appointments based upon merit , fixed terms of office , and such an administration of the civil service laws as will afford equal opportunities to all citizens of ascertained fitness . This was declared by the very men who now seek the undoing of the law to be an attack Ul ) OU the civil service , and Mr . Bryan lost many votes because it was in the platform upon which he stood . The past decade has witnessed a great advance in public sentiment favorable to and in the secureme...
I The Record of a Year [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
I The Record of a Year 1 / ^ -v y ^^ y * -7 MARKED an upward turn in LJ 11 / the agricultural affairs of this ^* S ^ - J / country , and the record of the V _ y v _ y JL year just closed is one which must give new confidence and courage to farmers and those engaged in all lines of trade and commerce . For many years agriculture has been passing through a process of readjustment to numberless new conditions . This may be said of all lines of business , indeed , for the first fruits of revolutionary inventions , largely increased means of transportation , the introduction of new methods in the conduct of enterprise ( as , for instance , the formation of trusts and combinations , such as we have witnessed during the decade just closed ) must be uncertainty and doubt as to the course to pursue , and only time and experience can point surely the way . But the long period of depression and doubt seems to have ended , if the broader meaning of the facts and figures which appear below are i...
Agriculture . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Agriculture . The Farmer s Opportunity In an address delivered before the Farmers institute at Reynolds , 111 ., S . W . Heath said : It has always been advocated by the theorist and politician that all our industrial interests are closely connected , the one depends in a greater or lesser degree upon the other . This theory sounds good , but in practice it is found that the farmer always comes out at the little end of the horn . The farmer has too many people to support ; too many new institutions and inventions to maintain ; and still more coming year by year . Do we realize that practically we support the whole social and industrial fabric of our country ? The past summer practically all the coal mines of the country were tied up for several months , but caused scarcely a ripple in the business world , except among those directly connected with them . Tie up the farming interests for the same length of time and the business world would be paralyzed and untold suffering would be t...

Garden and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 8 January 1898
Garden and Orchard Rural Notes At the state horticultural meeting L . H . Calloway read a paper in which there was something that , while not connected in any way with horticulture , contained an idea which it would be well for every neighborhood to put into practice . Mr . Calloway and his neighbors club together in the matter of a supply of fresh meat . One will kill a sheep and divide with his neighbors , then another will kill one and divide , and so on , changing from mutton to beef and from beef to pork , each butchering in turn and dividing the meat around among the club . But little salt meat is used . * * * Among the other papers read at the meeting was one which considered the matter of utilizing the surplus products of the orchard , such as cider apples , grapes that cannot profitably be disposed of , etc . The speaker recommended making cider jelly , preserving the grape juice in an unfermented state by heating to 200 degrees and keeping at that temperature for thirty mi...

Live Stock and Dairy E . Davenport , Director of the Illinois Experiment Slalion , and Professor of . Animal Husbandry and Dean ol the Agricultural College of the University of Illinois , Urbana , has become a regulur editorial contributor tu this department . All crucstlons relating to Animal Husbandry , save those belonging lo the Veterinary depart waent will bo answered by Prof .. Davenport . In the report of the Kansas state board of agriculture , which has been noticed in these columns , J . W . Newton , of Vermont , gives some of the benefits that are derived from dairying . We extract the following points : The first advantage of dairying is that it takes less fertility from the farm than any other branches of farming . A ton of wheat takes ? 7 from the fertility of the farm and sells for less than $ 16 . A ton of butter takes less than 50 cents from the fertility of the farm and sells for from $ 400 to ? G 00 . Butter is a condensed product , and nothing can be made or grown...
