ST. PAUL, April 8. -The grain investigation committee has concluded its work nnd will make two reports to the governor. Representative Moore refused to affix his signature on the ground that he did not like the report. It is understood he will present a minority report. The first matter touched upon relates to the cleaning of cars at Duluth. The committee finds that there probably was some laxity in the matter during the earlier period of inspection, but that as soon as the attention of the elevator companies was called to the evil measures were adopted to remedy it. The next matter touched upon is that of shipping wheat at night without inspection. Upon this subject the committee says: Testimony was received tending to establish the charges so made, and were it not for other evidence subsequently discovered the committee feel that they would have been amply justified in finding the charge so made in the main true. There ia no question but that in 1886 and subsequent years the two elevator companies named did ship in round numbers from their houses at night, without the knowledge of the employes of the said state departments, 250 000 bushels of wheat. After the fact of such shipment had been substantially established by the testimony of witnesses the said elevator companies admitted that a large volume of wheat had been secretly shipped from their houses without either inspection or weighing, The evidence sufficiently establishes the fact that a large amount of wheat became heated in the bins and almost totally ruined. The committee find that the matter was brought by the said companies to the attention of the rail road and warehouse commission, and that after the mature deliberation o that body the elevator companies were given the authority to secretely dispos of the wheat; and it is fair to belies that the irregular shipments testified to by witnesses were none other than those made in pursuance of the permis siou thus obtained. The committee have no doubt that the action of the commission in directing the secret shipment cf said injured grain was prompted by the highest considerations of public policy, and amply warranted both by provisions of the law and the existing facts. The committee further finds that the charge of shipment of 45,000 bushels from the same elevators without inspection or weighing was substantially true, the fact being admitted by the elevator companies. The companies claim, however, that the amount go shipped was an overage which was on hand at the time tliey began to do business under the inspection law. This wheat, the committee believes, the elevator companies should have caused to be "inspected in" at the time the inspection laws went into effect. That it was not done was probably due, the committee thinks, to a misapprehension of their duties rather than a desire to evade the law.

Direct all correspondence to J. &I8TBR, Bo» ft, GLIDDBN, IOWA, Supt. of low* age The nest matter of importance touched upon is that of the alleged elevator combination. The committee finds on this subject that there is no evidence which would .establish the fact of such a combination among the elevator companies of Minnesota, or between the elevator and railroad companies. The committee finds that the produc ing interests of the state are at this time as they have been for a long ume in the p tat, the victims of grain manipulators throughout the country. The committee recommends legislation to correct abuses as follows: 1. All the railroad companies of and doing business in this state should be required to construct and maintain track scales. 2. All public warehouses should be required bylaw to ascertain at least once during each crop year the amount of wheat in their bins and the amount of outstanding warehouse receipts. 3. In view of the great importance of the subject and the vast interests involved, the committee without committing itself to any policy of legislation, earnestly recommend that the next legislature consider the advisability of passing a law providing contiguous to deep water, at public expense, warehouses sufficiently large to afford storage without mixing the grain of differnt grades, for grain produced in this state, and for which service the state shall receive or may impose a moderate charae. 4. Furthermore, the committee would recommend that the next legislature, either by memorial to congress or otherwise, take some steps to counteract the evil influence of wheat gambling at Chicago and other great grain centers. B5. TheH committee would recommend, if practicable, that public elevators be required to construct scales and weigh grain upon the ground floor before the grain is elevated, so that the unloading of cars may be under the supervision of state weighers.
