.Sr. Pavl, Minn., July 12.—The one
i topic at the capital of Minnesota to
iilny is tlie application for the pardon
of the Youngers, which will be con
sidered by the state hoard of pardons
Monday. Sentiment i* divided, of
coii.-rs, hut the overwhelming weight
of it is in favor of tlio pardon
Men well known throughout tIn
state, who hud heretofore bitterly
opposed every move in the direction
J of clemency toward the Northtleld
bank robliera, have come forward to
speak for their release within the last
, week. The press of Minneapolis and
| St, Paul favor the pardon, and upon
this home sentiment the friends of the
Youngers base whatever hope they may
have that the board of pardons will re
lease the convict brothers This hope,
| however. Is slender, for it lias for
many years been said in Minnesota
that a man whotnight be instrumental
in the pardon of the Youngers need
never look for another otliee at the
hands of the people. For tills reason '
| few people believe that the board will I
grant a release.
Tile board is composed of llovernor ;
Clough, t hief Justice (start and At
torney (icneral Childs. It requires a 1
unanimous rote for the board to grant
a pardon. The hoard will meet to
consider application- for pardon Mon
day morning. Among the very first
of these will be the pleas for the
it is the general belief that I lover
no i- Clough will vote for the pardon,
but those who arc closest to Attorney
(icneral Cliilds and Chief Justice Start I

given expression on Hie subject. The |
ehange of sentiment in favor of the 1
pardon may influence them, but at
least one of them Is expected to op
pose. Tlie pardon would he ax much
a surprise as is the change in public
sentiment which lias taken place,

tsi. I'ai i, Minn.. July 1 —The only
individual protest of importance so far j
made against the pardon of the two I
Younger brothers is from A. K. Itun- j

Newspaper I'nion, who wan teller of !

1S"6, when they raided it. Mr. Hunker j

should be entitled to as much credence 1
as statements made by Cole Younger, j
twenty-one years after. Younger's ]
present story contains many mis
statements and omissions, lie at

James, while seeking liberty himself.
He would have u-> believe that lie was
at Northfield on that eventful day for
the purpose of preventing the boys
from killing law-abiding citizens. The
citizen who followed the four robbers
to the bank was J S. Allen, and he
was first to give the uluiin on the out

Prof. F. VV. Taylor, an per in tender
of the bureau of horticulture, agricul
ture and forestry of the Trans-Missis
sippi exposition, is in correspondents
with the growers of sugar beet seed
with a view to having them make ex
hihits at the exposition, showing tlit
methotl usetl in propagating the sect
i for these beets. He states that en
' eouruging replies have been receive!
i from several of these growers anil ht
feels confident that a number of then
will make exhibits. The professoi
says thut the cultivation of beets foi
seed purposes is as carefully conductet
as the breeding of fine stock, in brief
the plan is about this: The best look
ing beets are selected from the cror
and a small portion is taken from eftel
beet and subjected to a test for sac
charine properties. If the test reachn
tlie standard the licet is laid away un
til the next planting time. Those not
passing the test are thrown into tin
pile with the common lot. The sect!
beets are planted the following yeut
and carefully matured and permitted
to "go to seed." In this manner the
sugar-producing qualities of the beets
have been raised to a higher percent
age. Prof. Taylor hopes to have tliest
foreign growers who make a specialty
of raising seed come to the exposition,
nritl he expects to make these exhibits
the source of prolific information to
the growers of beets in this section,
lie says there Is no reason why the

not be raised in this immediate section
of the country, and he proposes to
utilize the exposition us a means of in
structing the seed growers in this re
gion in the most approved methods
adopted in Europe ns the result of
years of experimenting.
I’rof. Taylor is .Iso in correspond
ence with the makers of beet sugar
machinery, with a view of haring a
model plant in full operation on tin
exposition grounds in connection with
the exhibit of seed growers, lie says
that he has no doubt that a complete

Secretary Goodrich of the Omaha
street railway company says that an
order will be at once is,tied, based on
tlie law passed by the late legislature,
requiring all city officials holding
street ear passes to turn in their passes
Sunday. .July 11. and thenceforth they
will have to pay fare like common peo
ple. The order will be more far
reaching than this, however, as it will
also apply to members of the ixiliec
ami fire departments, who have hither
to been allowed to ride free upon
showing their badges. .Mr. Goodrich
says lie believes that the promulgators
of the bill did not expee.. it to reach so
far. but tlie bill pro vices that no pass
shall be issued to an official or employe,
elected or appointed, and particularly
mentions that “no metal" or other de
vice shall be given or used for the
purpose of free rides. He says that
the expenee to the eity on the police
department alone will be enormous.
The law applies not alone to the

Kipfrlui^ntal Farming.
While the condition of Nebraska
crops, as shown by local railroad re

that there is but little need to resort

most encouraging. They show that
the prospects for this season’s cropol

winter wheat to ripen very rapidly and
the harvest of these crops lias been
pushed forward. Spring wheat and
oats are generally growing well and
tilling nicely. Corn has everywhere
grown well, but in the central sections
tlie high temperature with abundant
moisture has caused corn to make an

Letters Patent that arc now being
prosecuted in the patent office bus re'
centlv been formally allowed •Tln-sc
inventions relate to methods and ap
paratus for manufacturing calcium
carbide and also generators for con
verting |this calcium carbide into
acetylene illuminating gas. and the
inventors are prominent business men
of Holstein, Iowa, Messrs. C. L. \\ ilson,
C. Minna. J. YY. Unger, II. Schrieck
10th. A. I’, lirosius and YV. Kuchel.
The allowance of these patents will
undoubtedly mean much to the man
ufacturing interests of northern Iowa
for the reason that the company above
named intend to establish a plant for
the manufacture of the calcium car
bide and also the generating machines.
Acetylene gas, the new iltumiuaut, is
produced by combining calcium car
bide and water, and the -light that is
produced by burning this gas is ol si
purer white than electricity itself and
is very brilliant. The generating ma
chines invented by the company are
of a size and capacity designed to be
plaeed in ordinary dwelling houses
where by charging the generator
every day or week the gas may be
used just as freely as with the ordi
nary citv gas and u better light is
provided at a much less cost. Val
uable information about securing,
valuing and selling patents sent free
to any address.
