JIM HILL GETS ITJ Said He Has Secured Control of the Northern Pacific Railroad. DEAL CLOSED IN EUROPE By Mr. Hill Acquiring the Sec­ ond Mortgage Bonds of the Road. ST. PATJL, May 16.—The Globe says: James J. Hill is today the master and manager of two of the greatest railway systems in the world. A telegram received at the First Na­ tional bank Wednesday crystallized into fact the rumor that the Great Northern magnate was abroad to con­ summate negotiations that should make him master of (he Northern Pacific railroad in addition to his own magnifi­ cent property, the Great Northern. These negotiations have now been brought to a succesful conclusion, and while the exact details of the transac­ tion cannot at present be more than guessed at, the fact remains that Mr. Hill Has Secured Control of the Northern Pacific by acquiring the second mortgage bonds of the road. This is supposed to have been accom­ plished through the efforts of E. D. Adams, chairman of an influential com­ mittee...

Rhodes (city and county attorney) and John Wetzel (cashier of the German Am­ erican Bank) were discovered riding bicycles on the sidewalk onthesouth side of First avenue southeast. The attention of Chief of Police Bailey was called to them by one of their friends. Next morning Bailey made a complaint against them for violat­ ing a city ordinance. and they were brought before City Justice Shaw. Mr. Wetzel pleaded guilty just us though he didn't realize the enormity of dodging a little city ordinance, and paid bis tine. He seemed indifferent, to the effect of police court sentei.ee. and when fined $7.50 he paid his fine.

The following from The Forum for March strikes the keynote of progress iu the towuH of our country and shows what earnest and united effort may ac­ complish toward beautifying aud mak­ ing them more healthful and desirable as places of residence, not to mention the increase of wealth The American people are showing a rapidly growing interest in the improve­ ment of their towns, and of the many causes of this progress the numerous vil­ lage improvement societies are not the least. Ap Jack Falstaff was "not only witty in himself, but tho oauso that wit was in other men," so the influence of these societies is by no means limited to the towns or counties where they are organized, for their example benefits many towns where no improvement so­ cieties have yet been formed.

t*' '1 a V^« "!, A very jefood sized audience was out last night to witness the fourth heat in the great six-day race, and were- repaid by seeing one of the best exhibition of a race of this kind. Last night was ladies' night and the air sex was admitted free, and the gallery and stage contained quite a large number of them. Several ladies carried beautiful bouquets of flowers which were pre­ sented to their favorite pedestrian, showing that the ladies took a great interest in and admired the wonder fill feats of endurance and speed shown by the athletes. Smith was true to his word when he said if there was any change in the positions it would be an increase of his lead, although he only suc­ ceeded in taking one lap from Jones, which was done in the first part of the race. Jones also kept his word and made better than 33 miles, as he promised yesterday. There is little doubt now in the mind of any one who has witnessed the race so far but that the question of first place is between...

VOL 25. RATES WILL GO UP One Result of the Deal Be­ tween Jim Hill and the Northern Pacific. EXPENSES WILL ALSO BE CUT. Canadian Pacific to Be Given a Lively Race for North­ western Trade. NEW YORK, May 20.—President James J. Hill of the Great Northern railway, who arrived from Europe Saturday, conferred with the Northern Paoific reorganization committee and then started for Chicago. Previous to his departure Mr. Hill said in an inter­ view that Collis P. Huntington did not put the 10 per cent estimate on in­ crease in business a bit too high as a result of the deal between these two companie. Rates will be put up slightly all along the line and many ex­ penses cut off. Moreover, it means that the Canadian Pacific will be given a lively race in the building up and de­ velopment of the Northwest. "Will not the Canadian Pacific rail­ way fe a dangerous competitor?" he was asked. Not in the least," answered Mr. Hill. "We can compete with any transcontinental line in the matter of fas t...

Toward the close of last year state­ ments were, published by free trade pa­ pers showing how great an improve­ ment thero was in our exports of manu­ factured goods, the inference being that wo were reaching the markets of tho world under tho reform tariff. This was a half truth infinitely more dangerous than a naked lie. Total values wero not given in support of the statement, only percentages of values, and as there had been such an enormous shrinkage in tho export valuo of our agricultural products, naturally enough thero was a gain in the percentage of our exports of manu­ factured goods.

FIVE AGAINST IT. The Famous Income Tax Law N.ow a Thing of the Past. SHIRAS CHANGES HIS VIEWS. The Opinions of Harlan and White Cause General Comment. WASHINGTON, May 21.—The income tax law, which has received so large a share of the public attention since the beginning of the first regular session of the Fifty-third congress, is a thing of the past. After being twice heard in the United States supreme court, it was finally decided unconstitutional. There were four dissenting opinions de­ livered in these cases, one each by Justioes Harlan, Brown, Jackson and White, showing that the court had stood five to four against the law. In­ asmuch as one of thes? dissenting opinions was handed down by Justice Jackson, and as he was absent at the first hearing, when the court divided evenly on the question of sustaining the law on all points except those as to the tax on incomes from rents and bonds, it follows that one of the mem­ bers of the court who at first pro­ nounced for the law, exce...

NOEXTRA SESSION No Probability That Congress W111 Convene Before Next December. NO NEED OF A BOND ISSUE Cash Balance and Revenues Are Sufficient For All Expenses. WASHINGTON, May 22.—The income tax decision, its effect upon the rev­ enues and the probabilities of an extra session of congress to provide means for «upplying the deficit, were the chief. subjects of discussion in official and po litical circles. Senator Morgan of Ala bama, one of the ablest constitutional lawyers in the senate, said the decision leaves the taxing powers of the govern­ ment in a state of wreck. It will re­ quire a long time for us to gather up the fragments. Principles of taxation which were considered well settled are torn up by this decision "How will the question come up in the senate?" "In connection with the question of lefunding the $75,000 already collected and the refund of the cotton, whisky, twer and tobacco taxes. All those taxes aire as much direct taxes as the tax on personality and are unco...

1 NO NEW COMMISSION. Attorney General Child* Re vl«« His Opinion. A couple of weeks ago the attorney general filed a decision to the effect that the new game and fish law leg­ islated the old board out of office. Some of the game and fish commis­ sion resisted the decision, and through the arguments of the at­ torney of the commission induced the state's attorney to examine the new law more carefully, with the result as above. As Hon. A. F. Ferns was the author of the bill, and also a mem­ ber of the commission, he naturally objected to a ruling that was so manifestly different from the inten­ tion of the law. We are pleased that the old board remains in office. Memorial Day Exercises. The committee of the G. A. It. having tne arrangeineut of exercises for May 30 in charge has com­ pleted a program.
