What la ii public grain warehouse?
This question has been answered
by tho Btato railway commission in a
manner that waB a aurprlso to some,
but In accordance with court deel
hIoiis. Tho last leglslnturo passed an
act declaring that any warchouso or
elevator that keeps grain on hand In
storage for owners for a period longer
than ten dnys shall be declared to bo
a public warehouse and must comply
with tho provisions of the stato law
povcrnlng grain warehouses. Such
houses can charge not to exceed ono
and one-half cents a bushel for tho
first fifteen days and not to exceed
one cent a month thereafter.
The Van Wluklo Grain & Lumbor
company of York, which owns moro
than ono elevator, submitted to tho
state railway commission n contract
which It proposes to mako with own
rsrs of grain. Tho company proposes
to buy grain to be paid for at a futuro
date ngrecd upon and to deduct thrco
fourths of ono cent a bushol from tho
prlco agreed upon, tho deduction to
bo made to cover storage. The prlco
to bn paid Is to bo tho prlco which
tho company Is paying on tho future
dato agreed upon at any particular
elevator owned by tho company des
ignated In the contract.
Tho railway commission decided
that under this contract tho grain Is
pold nnd the titlo passes to tho ele
vator company nnd therefore tho ele
vator Is storing It own grain and not
tho grain of others and Is not a public
warehouse nnd need not comply with
tho wnrohonso law. Sovcral elevator
companies that do not care to comply
with the public grnln warchouso law
are said to hnvo decided to buy grain
under contracts similar to that of tho
Primary Day April 18.
Researches mado In tho statutes y
Secretary of State Pool show that tha
codo commission of 1913 amended the
primary law governing presidential
preferenco elections, so that primary
day next spring will be April 18, in
Htcad of April 21.
Tho old law tho one passed by tha
1011 legislature sot tho tlnio at "for.
ty-flvo days before tho first Monday iu
Tho codo commission's law fixes tha
time at "tho third Tuesday in April"
Tho codo commission's report was
adopted In blanket form by the legis
lature of 1915, and thus tho primary
law Is amended in regular fashion al
though specific measures changing It
were never enacted by tho legislature.
Tho law creating tho codo commis
sion empowers that body to elimin
ate obsolcto and unconstitutional mat
ter from tho statutes, and gives It a
right to" change laws to correspond
to "common custom and usage;"
hence it is believed hero that the
change of dates was within its rights.
It Is said In defense of tho action that
Tuesday Is commonly regarded ns an
election day in this state, and that
"forty-flvo days before tho first Mon
day" would mako tho day fall on Frl

Coincident with the announcement
by tho board of control that Dr. 3,
It. Van dor Sllco had been dismissed
as superintendent of the state tuber

known that, through an oversight,
Van der Sllco never gave bond to in
sure a faithful porformanco of his
duties. Voluntary restitution has been
ma'do by tho superintendent to covet
an appareut shortage of $148 In the
emergency cash fund of tho hospital.
