Firm Is Selllnar Aa-ent.
Although It sold . 8100,000,000 worth of
farm Implements, the international Har
vester Company of America last year
made only $150,000 in profits, or fiftecn
hundredths of 1 per cent, according to It
C. Haskins, the president, who testified
yesterday. . .. " .
Questions were asked by the govern
ment attorneys to show that the Interna
tional Harvester Company of America
was merely the selling agent of the In
ternational Harvester Company of New
Jersey and that the latter company was
to make all the money.
"Is It not your object to buy from the
New Jersey .company at such a price as
will enable you to sell so that you will
have neither a loss nor a profit?'4, asked
Edwin P, Grosvenor, special assistant at
torney general. : '
: "Our object is to buy as cheaply as we
can and to make as much as possible.
We try to buy from the New, Jersey com
pany at prices we -would get from any
other company," replied Mr. Haskins. ;
"But you never have paid a dividend?"
"No, we never have."
' Methods of Sale.
Most of today's session was devoted .to
describing technical features of farm im
plements. Mr. Haskins related the
methods of sale to farmers in answer to
the government's charge that as a trust
the harvester company maintained prices
"to the serious injury of the farmer." .
The witness said the company sold to
agents with a 5 per cent discount for cash
and the 'agent, by adding his profit de
termined the price which the farmer was
- to pay. '
One reason, Mr. Haskins explained, why
the sale company made only $150,000 while
it sold $100,000,000 worth of Implements
' was that it was constantly expanding its
business and expending large sums for

Carolina, who are Roosevelt supporters
Successors were named to retiring mem
bers from Oklahoma, Ohio, New Jersey
and North Carolina.
Chairman Hilles said that in New Jersey
Borden B. Whiting, a .Roosevelt follower
had notified the committee of his re-
rusai to resign his membership. The
committee, Mr. Wiles said, would prob
ably fill the seat with Franklin Mur-
phy, a former committeeman. The 'same
situation obtained in California, the
chairman said, where Russ Avery, a
Roosevelt man has not resigned. In this
case, however, Mr. Hilles thought a sub
committee of the national committee
would be asked to recommend a succes
sor to Mr. Avery.

ST. PAUL, Sept 18.-Electien Judges
and clerks worked all night counting the
ballots cast at yesterday's first state wide

are that tin following have been nomi
nated: . .

r Senator Knute Nelson retained a lead
in late returns, but apparently was given
a close race by James Paterson of Minne
apolis. Lyndon A. Smith of Montevideo
for attorney general, also, In available
returns was closely pressed by J. H.
Fraser of Rochester.
Election Judges declare that not more
than one-tenth of the voters used the
second choice privilege, which probably
means that Governor Adolph Eberhart
has been renominated.
It appears that Clint Robinson of St

LINCOLN, Sept 18.- (Special. -The
hearing on the protest of A. M. Morrlssey,
democrat'c candidate for . attorney gen
eral, against the placing upon the offloial
ballot the candidates of the "progressive,"
or bull moose, party came up this after
noon before Secretary of State Wait.
The affidavit of Mr, Morrlssey set forth
that at the meeting for the formation of
the progressive party there were not suf
ficient voters necessary to organize the
party according to law, which calls for
600 voters, but that the meeting was com
posed mostly of men of other political be
liefs and f women and children, That at
the close of the address by Governor
Johnson most of the crowd left, and that
when the party was organised not over
260 voters were present.
How Petition Was Circulated.
Ellis E. Wolfe, a reporter for the Lin
coln Daily Star, made affidavit to the
t on and that 160 would be a large esti
mate as to the number who were present
at the meeting. He further set forth
that he had talked with Dr. B. F. Will
iams, superintendent of the Lincoln hos
pital for the Insane where many of the
signatures were secured, and that the
superintendent denied that he had signed
said petition and did not know how his
name could bo tahetreon,. as he was a
democrat and not Interested in polltlca
Mr. Wolfe also testified that he had
talked with E. B. Bennett Stewart at
the same Institution, and he said that ho
nd Mr. Fuller, private secretary to Gov
ernor Aldrlch, circulated the petition.
Henry C. Richmond, democratic candi
date 'for state auditor made affidavit
to substantiate the same facts as tffc
The affidavits wen? objected to by
Judge Root, one of the attorneys for th
buir moosers but they Were .admitted1 by
Secretary 0? State Walt.
The attorneys then took up the argu
ment of the case, Morning and Ledwlth
appearing for tyr. Morrtasey and Judge
Root and C. C. Flansburg for the bull
Ararnnient for Morrlssey.
Mr. Morning took up the legality of
the section of the statute relating to pri
maries and Mid that the law provided
that a primary should be held at a cer
tain time for the nomination of candi
dates for office. He . contended that &
new party, should not have any more,
rights than an old party, and that if a
new party could come in after the pri
mary, and call a convention to nominate
a ticket the old parties could do like
wise, and therefore the primary law
was Ineffective. He went further and
said that the primary law said plainly
that at the state convention a platform,
should be adopted, but that no candi
dates should be endorsed for any office.
"If an old party eould not endorse can
didates for office, what right has a new
party to hold a convention and endorse
candidates?" said Mr. Morning.
He also contended that when Mr. Van
Meter, secretary of the bull moose party.
certified that he saw the men place the.
signatures to the petition for the - new
party that he stated what was wrong, for
the affidavit of Mr. Wolf showed that
Mr. Bennett and Mr. Fuller circulated
the petition for the signatures at the
state asylum and the penitentiary.
FlnnMltnrn- for Dull Moose.
Mr. Flansburg, appearing for the bull'
moose petition, argued that it was not
necessary that tho same men who signed
the petition, should be the same who at
tended the convention. He read the law
of 1907 relating to how new part!fls should
be formed and showed that by that sec
tion of the primary law that the new;
convention was a legal convention." Mr.'
Morning called his attention to the fact
that the law he had read had been re
pealed In 1909, but Mr. Flansburg f de
clared that It had not been repealed.
At the close of his argument Flansburg
read affidavits by Van Meter, chairman
of 'the committee which secured signa
tures; W, J. Wells. C. B. Manuel and B,
F. Bothwell, his assistants. Van Metel
swore that he witnessed as near as ha
could the signing of all the names, and
