Sr. Pacl, Jan. A great flour mill
to be operated entirely by "electricity is
to be erected on the site of the St. Paul
roller mill burned two years ago and is
ta be nnder the direction of Kingsland
Smith of St. PauL If the experiment

Kingsland Smith some years ago invent
ed the roller process, which then created
a revolution ta flour making. He has
been experimenting with electricity ap

eaevneed of its cheapness and ita entire
practicability in running even the heavi

'Washington, Jan. B. A case in
volving a matter of much in
terest to new towns, particularly those
in the west, was disposed of by the Unit
ed States supreme conrt. It was that of
the Northern Pacific Railroad company
vs. the Territory of Washington. The
town of Yakimi CMy, in that state, was
directly on the line of the railroad, but
the railroad company refused to give it
a passenger and railroad station, but es
talilihhed one at North 7akima. a much
smaller town. The town of Yakima
City made application for a writ of
mandamus to compel the company to es
tablish a station there and it was grant
ed. The case was brought to the fed
eral supreme court, and in ita
decision it sustains the railroad
company, holding that the charter
of the company simply authorized
it, without requiring it to construct and
maintain a railroad to a certain point,
and that it cannot be compelled bv man
damus to complete or maintain its road
to that point when it would not be re
munerative. Justice Brewer, for Jus
tices Field. Harlan and himself, deliv
ered a vigorous dissenting opinion. He
sal a tne railroad company had for pri
vate interests, built ud a new town or
city at the expense of the old. He con
tended that the railroad company should
be compelled to subserve nnbllo inter
ests in a ketter way, and held that the

A Free Wool mil.
Washington, Jan. 8. There will as
suredly be a large number of bills pre-
seniea in me nouse as soon as tne order
of busmen is reached. Many members
are prepared with tariff measures affect
ing particular home interests. It is said
Chairman Springer, of the ways and
means committee, will wait until these
bills have reached his committee before
he presents the measure he has been en
gaged in framing during the holidavs.
This bill places on the free list all tho
forms of wool and hair except shoddy
and waste, the tariff on which is to 1
reduced from 80 to 10 cents a pound.
The bill will also repeal the specific
duties on the manufactures of wool such
as carpets, clothing, etc., but the ad
valorem duties will remain. In regard
to carpets the Springer bill will be sub
stantially the same as proposed by the
Mills bill. The present average of dutv
on woolen manufactures is 81 per cont.
In the Springer bill this average is re
duced to 45 per cent.
Mr. Springer says that a free wool
bill will poos the house without a sinirlo
dissenting Democratio vote. He says
he knows that not a Democratio mem
ber from Ohio will vote against the prop
osition, while tho Texas Republicans are
anxious for such a bill to be presented.
ChattanoooX, Jan. 5. A dispatch
from an officer on duty with the state
troops at Coal Crook says no direct hos
tilities have begun. The'convicts worked
all day felling trees for a blockhouse
and fortifications. Eugene Merrill, the
leader of the miners, returned from an
"alarm trip' in east Tennessee ond Ken
tucky and a meeting has been called. If
the convicts are returned to Briceville
trouble is very apt to follow and more
troops will be needed.
REPRESENTATION IN THE STATE
A Praotioal Suggestion.
Kditor Farmers' Am.iancs: I see
suggestions are asked for as to changing
the present niaauer of selecting dele
gates to tho Stat Alliance that the
number may be reduced. That the
number now' is too large is admitted.
But how to change the manner of select
ing and reduce the number without in
viting ring-rule is the thing to do. A
method should be selected by which
any member could express his mind
on the subject and be represented in the

and will also get an expression of thu

Let tho number ot delegates to the State
Alliauce be appointed according to the
number ot members iu the state. Suv
one delegate for every 200 or 800 mem
bers in the state. And then each coun
ty have a number of delegates Iu pro

Omaha Notes.' "
The last legislature passed a law that
would compel all railroads to pay city
taxes on all laud they held in cbie? in
excen of their rjght of way. . Tho U. P.
By. Co. has refused to pay such taxes
dn Omaha, and is going to try to have
the l,w declared unconstitutional.
There is no reason' why, rich railroad
companies' ahonld not pay taxes to sup
port the citr as well as poor persons.
There are many men of small mea-s
latheo ty of tlmaha who 'pay mors
taxes era a little home that Is sot worth
more than twe or three thousand dol
lars than some of the corporations pay
won have invested hnndretl of thous
ands of dollars When there was some
talk cf annexing South Omaha to Oma
ha the cry was that the large packing
houses would not pay city taxer They
tae great meat monopolists would :f use
to tay city taxe. and they are bleeding
every one whs deals with them, and ue
tho pared streets of the city as much or
moie than any other firm in the city.
Large corporation escapiog so much
of '.heir just taxes is what makes rent
so high to the working people who have
all taxes to pay in the end. me small
land owners in the city have to pay a
tremeaduous heavy tax wnile the
large land owners have their property
assessed aiacre property, which is taxed
at a much less rate.
The interview with senator Carlisle
which was no doubt prepared by the
gents of "Wall street," and only received
ms approval, nas been pubiisnea in
nearly all the leading republican papers.
Many oi the republican papers in com
menting upon it say it is good advice to
the democrats. This shows plainly that
the two old parties are getting ready
'o nght on tho tariff question and ignore
everything else. We believe if they do
the people will ignore thorn.
An Open Letter to the Editor of The

Inpiakola. Neb.. Dac. 27, '01
Editob Statu Joubnal: I received
a copy of jour monopoly sheet this
morning wmcn l win return to you un
read as soon as I can get to a P. O
( want you to understand that you can
not compare the farmers to bogs and
then force your paper upon me without
tho insult being resented by me. You
are trying to make the farmers believe
that they are too ignoraut to know
what they want, when you know they
are asking for that which is right, sod
tnat is not all, they are going to nave
their rights. I want you to understand
that we know our condition as well as
you do, and the time for '.he farmers to
bel.eve your cun lingly devised lies is
fust drawing to a close. The farmers
nave learned that you will not publish
any article that will be of interest to
hem politically or unnocially. xouare
be laMt man to tell us how much in
terest we are paying on English capital,
the amount of farm mortgages or bonds,
the number of acres owned iw aliens.
But you give us tariff! Tariff It TAKirr!!!
Hut we have learned i hat the price of our
wheat is governed by the price of wheat
in England, and that tariff will not pay
our taxes, interest or mortgages, neither
will tree trade pay ttiem, therefore we
must have money, and the question is
how are we going to get it. We have
tried yonr plan, that of lending money
to banks and then borrowing it again,
and wo know from experience that tt.e
principal always has to go back with in
terest or our property goes, which is
often tho case. Farmer; are closed out
in tho east and move out west and find
the some condition of things. The facts
are that since the establishment of tho
national banking system and tho de
struction of the greenbacks, that we
either had to steal or borrow, to got
money in circulation to do business
with, ard the farmers being an honor
able class of people chose the latter,
whilo politicians and such editors as
yourself proceeded to deceive the peo
ple (and yeu have succeeded wonderful
ly well) yet you did not deceive all the
people; you havo kept the people in ig
norance by ignoring labor organizations
yet tho light spread until you were
compelled to recognize us and then do
fend yourself and allies and degrade the
tinners, compared us fo hogs, but I
want to say to you that tho timo is at
hand when men are measured by what
they are not what they possess, and
that you, and your allies, will rccoive
the contempt you deservo, and wilt be
labled what you are, i. e, enemies to
ourfreo Institutions, right and right
eousness and be known as tories, for
if you are not then decendants you have
