A. Spoor May Lead.
Chicago, Nor. 23. .V movement
which ha not yet become well defined
is said to have been started to place tho
Western railroads in control of West
ern men, so that their poller no longer
will bo dictated from Wall street. Great
secrecy is being maintained regarding
John A. Sroor. president of the Chi
cago Junction road, is said to be an
important member of tho new coterie of
railway men who trill shapo the dos
tlnies of tho Western roads. Mr. Spoor
denies a knowledge of anything about
the movement, but his recent entry into
the board of the Chicago Great West
ern road Is said to bo part of the plan.
It is the opinion of nearly all West
em rail presidents that an almost con
stant linking of names of Western roads
with Wall street operators is responsible
in a largo measure for the wave of ad
verse legislation in recent years. As a
matter of fact, tho peonlo own most of
the Western roads. Why not let the
stockholders run them Instead of Wall
street operators? is the question being
It is understood that as soon as a suf
ficient number of strong Western bui
ness men havo been elected directors
thero will be established a pseudo
board of control, which shall shape the
policies of all Western roads insofar as
thoio policies affect the traveling and
shipping public. In this manner it is
thought the Western roads can get away
from the Wall street stigma and so
shape their policies that the public will
understand that the railroad managers
believe, in truth, that the interest of
the public and of tho railroads Is ono
and the same.

WHAT RECORDS TO KEEP.
Ceusua Director Durand' Instructions
Relative to the Farm Census,
Washington, Nov. 20. An outline
for the American farmers of tho meth
od of keeping a written record of their
farm operations and equipment to in
sure on accurate farm census next year
has been issued by United States Cen
sus Director K. Dana Durand. It was
prepared by Professor Lo Grand Pow
ers, Uulted States census chief statisti
cian for agriculture. It states:
"The advantages of always having
on hand for ready reference a detailed
written statement of ono 'a real and
personal property are readily under
stood by cveryono and will bo most
keenly appreciated when tho census
enumerator calls with his list of ques
tions next April. Tho valuo of tho
census figures of farm wealth depends
upon their accuracy, and accuracy can
only bo secured through tho co opera
tion or tho rarmcrs inemsoivcs, in no
way can tho farmer extend more prac
tical assistance to tho census bureau,
and in no way can ho render himself
a greater scrvico than by getting out
his pencil nnd note book on tho evening
of April tho Hth next, and making up
a statement or ms inrm property, 'the
questions to bo asked concerning farm
property arc as follows:
1. Total valuo of farm, with all build
ings and improvements.
2. Valuo of buildings.
3. Valuo of all Improvements and
machinery, Including tools, wngons,
carriages, harnesses, etc., and all ap
pliances and apparatus used In farm

"The census will not ask the valno
of household goods, nor that of hay,
grain or other farm crops on hand on
April 15. These Items should bo in
eluded, however, by all desiring a com
plete inventory of their farm property.
"The vaiuo given to tho rarm should
be, as nearly as can bo judged, tho
. . . . ... .--. r .
amount mat could be obtained ror it
if offered for sale under normal con
ditions. Current markot prices should
bo carefully considered In estimating
tho value of live stock.
"Although tho census merely re
quires a statement of total value of
aH implements and machinery, It is be
lieved that a classification of these
items under the following four heads
will be found valuable:
1. Vehicles: This elans comprises
automobiles, wagons, carriages and
sleighs, and equipment used in connec
tion with them, as harnesses, blankets,
2. Heavy farm implements: Com
prising all implements and machinery
operated by any power other than
nana power, ns plows, narrows, rollers,
reapers, mowers, hay loaders, feed
grinders, etc., etc.
3. Haud machinery and tools, includ
ing carpenters' tools, boos, shovels,
scythes, forks, grindstones, fanning
-I. Miscellaneous articles, including
all such minor equipment as kettles,
palls, barrels, baskets, ladders, ropes,
chains, etc, not included in the first
"Many farmers greatly underesti
mate tbo total value of their posses
slons of this character when consider
ing them in tbo aggregate, and it is
only by preparing an Itemized list as
suggested abovo that an accurate esti
mate of their worth can be made. The
value assigned this class of property
In tbo Inventory should bo tho esti
mated amount it would bring at pub-
lie auction under favorable conditions.
"As In the ease of the farm Inven
tory, no special blanks aro required for
tho record of farm products of 1009.
An ordinary note book with leaves at
least six inches wide will bo found
convenient. Tbo following Information
will bo called for:
1. rarm expenses in 1009: A. Amount
spent in cash for farm labor (exclusive
of house work).
B. Estimated valuo of houso rent and
board furnished farm laborers in ad

of each crop to bo planted for harvest
in 1P1U will also bo called for by the
enumerator. This cannot be determined
much beforo the datu of tho enumer

of acres in orchards and vineyards,
give as nearly as possiblo tho number
of trees nnd vines of bearing age. The
quantity of certain fruit products, as

produced In 1M9 will be required, as
will also tho quantity and valuo of
sugar, syrup and molasses produced

A considerable part of tho annual pro
duetion of eorn, oats, barley, kalllr corn,
milo mane, hay, ilax fiber and straw,
other straw, eorn stalks and cotton
seed is usually consumed on the farm.
Owing to this fact, a report will bo

amounts realised tborofrom.
8. Forest products: Tho value of all
forest prbduet cut or produced In 1909

ant question that will be asked con
cerning the farm products of 1009.
American agriculture Is so diversified

Its branches that any schedule designed

Its resources and operations must nes
oswarily contain a large number of In

whieh to review the results of tho year
WW and prepare ror the visit or the
enumerator. Hut preparation of a
written record should bo commenced at
onee. No one should attempt to com
plete It In ono evening, but tho work
should bo divided as indicated in the
above outline, one evening being given
up to rarm expenses, a second to live
stoek, a third to dairy products, and
so on through the list. In this way
each topic, can be given tho considera
