Chicago— Alarmed over unfavorable
crop reports, railroads extending into
the N orthw est have decided to inaug
urate one of the most rigid retrench
m ent policies of recent years. All
W estern railroads, including those run
ning from Chicago into the Northw est
and into Canada, have had experts out
on their lines for the past ten days
gathering data regarding crop condi
tions. These men have made reports
to various railroad managements,
which have caused general alarm as to
the tonnage of the future.
Several of the N orthw estern rail
roads have already called conferences
between operating officers with a view
of giving them information regarding
conditions and discussing retrench
Railroad crop reports for the N orth
w est indicated that along the lines of
the St. Paul, Burlington, N orthw est
ern, Minneapolis & Omaha and other
roads the w heat crop, in several states,
will not be greater than 50 per cent.
The experts declare that in Minnesota
and in North and South Dakota, for
example, a large proportion of the
wheat acreage is being plowed up and
sown to flax.
An early drouth in this section, fol
lowed by days of continuous hot winds,
which took the moisture out of the
ground and started the w heat to head
ing out, have been the causes of the
threatened crop shortage. On all of
the Northwestern roads all new con
struction has been ordered stopped.
One road which has several hundred
miles of new road graded and ready
for rails has ceased work on this im
Track forces have either been cut to

PRESERVING TH E DECLARATION
It I s f a r e d f o r W i t h M u c h R e v e r
e n c e at th e N ation*« C a p ita l.
There is so much reverence for the
document on which the 56 signers of
the immortal Declaration of Independ
ence Inscribed their names that it is
no wonder it is preserved at the na
tional capital with the utmost care.
It is in the state departm ent building
that the document is kept, and a safe
specially constructed for Its préserva
tion in as good condition as possible is
Its home. The guardianship of the
revered document is Intrusted to an of
ficial of the departm ent named Wil
liam H. McNeer.
The parchm ent with the original sig
natures was deposited with the depart
m ent of state when the government
was organized In 1789. In 1823 John
Quincy Adams had a copperplate fac
sim ile made to give copies to the sign
ers and their heirs. The original was
injured in this way, the wet sheet
pressed on the face drawing out the
ink so th at the names of the signers
have become illegible and the text
partially so In recent years It has
been kept sealed up in a steel case,
and the greatest care has been taken
to prevent tts coming to any harm.
One of the results of the preserva
tion of interest In the Declaration of
Independence Is the formation of a
society composed of descendants of
signers of this immortal document.
The most im portant meeting in the
history of this organization was that
held at Washington last April, when
the descendants of the patriots of ’76
visited the state departm ent and gazed
upon the charter of liberty there
guarded with so much Jealousy and
even reverence. The first reunion of
the signers was held at the Jam es
town exposition in 1907 as part of the
celebration of Independence day by
the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Asso
ciation of the United States.
The prim ary objects of the organi
zation are “for the purpose of aiding
in the preservation of historical rec
ords, to help educate the people in love
and patriotism for country, to appro
priately mark and protect the last
resting places of the signers of tho
Declaration of Independence, to col
lect and publish Instructive m aterial
regarding the life and works of all the
signers of the Declaration of Inde
pendence and for other patriotic pur
The membership of the Descendants
of the Signers is now up into the hun
dreds, with descendants of nearly
every one ot the 46 of the signers
of the Declaration of Independence
who left descendants. Nine of the sign
ers died without issue, several never
m arrying. There are members of the
organization in Switzerland, France,
England and Hungary, with most of
the states represetned. Thus far
Pennsylvania seems to have taken the
more active Interest in tho movement,
although others give good promise. It
is estim ated that there are several
thousand persons, including the chil
d re n who are eligible to membership.
