Washington. June 10. —The Hogan line,
which owns a long line of ocean freight
ers of large tonnage, has made arrange
ments for an all-year service between
Galvesten and Havre and Rotterdam.
Fur Beveral years, during the cotton sea
son, these boats have been running be
tween the points named, and the estab
lishment of a permanent service means
that a systematic effort will now be made
to divert Mississippi valley export busi
ness originating in territory north of St.
Louis from Xew York to the southward.
The business interests of reconstructed
Galveston are back of the enterprize and
propose to send commercial agents into
Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, lowa, Minne
sota, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Indiana. Ohio
and Tennessee to work up business for
the new line.
Consul Thackera, writing to the state
department from Havre, says that the
line will begin operations this year. The
service will be monthly until the middle
ptember, when it will be increased by
any additional sailings as may be
ssary to handle the traffic. Through
bills of lading will be issued to Amster
dam, Ghent, Stettin and to all Swedish
and Baltic ports via Rotterdam. In ad
dition to the steamers for Havre and Rot
terdam, others will be dispatched to Rot
terdam via Dunkirk or Bremen, should
the business justify it.
In order to emphasize the statement
that a systematic effort is to be made to
divert the export trade of the Mississippi
valley to the southern route, it may be
added that Consul Murphy writes from
Frankfort to the state department, say
ing that another German company is get-
Ting ready to start a Jtne of ships from
erp and Havre to Xew Orleans and
Cuban ports. And-Consul Fleming, writ
ing from Edinburgh, says that this month
or next there will be opened at Leith a
new dock for the use of large vessels
which are to engage in the American
trade, plying between Leith and Xew Or
leans and Galveston. This last-named
enterprise will be exclusively for the
? handling of cotton and grain, especially
For a number of years there has been
talk among business men in the middle
west regarding a European outlet via the
Gulf of Mexico. While some steps in that
direction were taken at the time, mat
ters never reached a sure business foot
ing. Now, however, it seems that Gal
veston and Xew Orleans propose to co
operate with the steamship companies
which are here named, for the purpose of
competing by an all-water route with the
all-rail route to Xew York. It is pro
posed to take grain, flour and other arti
cles designed for export down the Mis
sissippi in barges, reshipping them at
deep water points for Europe. The differ
ence between the rail and the water
freights from the heart of the continent
la expected to more than counterbalance
the extra time that will be needed for
the sending of goods over the new course.
OF INTEREST TO The circular which
has been sent o\ii by
MILLERS. the internal revenue
bureau relative to
refunding taxes paid by Minneapolis mil
lers and others on export bills of lading
la view of the fact that the act of May 12
1900, provides that claims for the allowance
of amounts paid for documentary stamps I
used in error or excess can be considered only
in cases where such claims are presented
within two years after the purchase of the
■ a from the government, and that sec
tion 3228, R, S., provides that claims for re
funding must be presented within two years
after the right of action accrues, parties de
- information should be Informed that
may present claims for the refunding of
amounts paid for documentary stamps affixed
lo export bills of lading, but that no action
will be taken upon such claims until after the
ieration by the United States supreme
court of the petition for a rehearing of the
case of Fairbanks vs. United States. Upon
received of such claims by a collector the
date of their receipt should be plainly
stamped thereon and the claims should be
retained in the office of the collector until
further advised by this office.

W$ HARD MARCH

BEST OF HEALTH ON THE WHOLE

Delegation of Indian* Visit

Special to The Journal.
Ouamta, Minn., June 10.—The Third
regiment went into camp five miles from
Mille Lac lake, at a point known as the
outlet, after marching eeven miles from
Locks Dam, where a camp was made.
Marching out from Milaca Wednesday
afternoon, about nine miles was made
before going into camp at Whitney
brooks. This point was reached in a
rain storm and it has rained most of the
time since. Good time was made in
spite of the rain and mud, and with hard
ly an exception the regiment is enjoying
the best of health. The distance from
Whitney's Brooks to Locka Dam, fifteen
miles, was covered in a driving rain over
clay roads "that were nearly impassable
for the men and teams. Company B,
Captain Pratt commanding, marched out
ahead of the command from the noon
camp as a pioneer company, repairing the
roads for the wagon train following. The
canteen wagon following the regiment
was the only one to suffer mishap, and it
escaped with the loss of a few bottles of
beer. The "beer man" is not getting
rich, as very little drinking is done. Hot ]
coffee is a greater favorite with the men !
than cold beer when the thermometer is I
hugging the freezing point.
The Indians took to the woods and
haven't been rounded up in large numbers i
as yet. A report was circulated among :
them that the soldiers were going to force I
them to leave their reservation, conse- i
quently they have "holed up" for a .few I
days. About fifty came in and gave a J
dance Friday afternoon and evening. The !
boys were delighted to see them and took ;
especial interest in the squaws and !
papooses. A few of the latter were fast- i
ened to a peculiarly constructed board, |
which gave the mother a decided advan- j
tage in that she could hang the child up
and find it safe on her return, certainly a
great advantage during the berry season,
when tree and wind are left to rock the
baby while every woman and child are
busy gathering the abundant small fruit.
The regiment rested Friday afternoon
and night, marching out Saturday morn
ing to Vineland, twelve miles away, half
of the distance being along the shore of
Mille Lac lake. From Vineland to Gar- i
retson, another twelve miles, the road
follows the lake shore, then makes a j
straight cut to Braiuerd, at which place
the regiment will arrive this afternoon.
The boys have not seen a paper or read a
letter since leaving St. Paul last Wednes

RECOGNIZE GOD AGAIN
Italian Masons It urn to First
New York Sun Special Service
Rome, June 10.—Every Free Mason in
in the United States will be interested
to learn that the Italian Free Masons,
after having for nearly three decades fol
lowed the example of the French branches
of the craft in eliminating all reference
to the Creator from their rites, and in
barring the use of the words, "A. G. D.
G. A. D. U." which stand for the Latin
words, "To the glory of the great archi
tect of the universe," have now restored
this mystic device, and have returned to
the Masonic recognition of the divinity.
This will have the effect of bringing
about a recognition between tile Italian j
lodges and those of the United States, of;
Great Britain, of Germany and of Scan- <
dinavia, which have boycotted all those 1
Masons of the Latin countries who have
denied allegiance to the great architect
of the universe.
BREAK IN AND OUT
One Gets Out of Jail and Another
Special to The Journal.
Oseeola, Wls., June 10.—Peter Leske,
alias Frank Holberg, who broke into Ma

KEEP UP THE FIGHT

Special to The Journal.
Winnipeg, Man., June 10.—Although it
would appear on the face, that the rail
road deal fight was over, and that the
government's opponents are .vanquished,
this is not the case.
The first application for injunction to
restrain the Northern Pacific from hand
ing over its road to the Canadian North
ern has, owing to the hasty action taken
by the government and the railroad com
panies in the matter, proved futile, and
has been withdrawn; but a second In
junction of wider scope has been applied
for. The latter covers every legul aspect
of the case. Attorney General Campbell,
or the official who is acting during his
absence in England, has the power to re
fuse the application, but has not the pow-
er to kill it, and the demand that the
legality of the action of the two gov
ernments be tested before the courts will
stand for future governments to deal
with. Roblin replied indirectly to the ap
plicants that he did not propose to spend
the people's money to satisfy the curi
osity of a few cranks, but the "cranks"
replied that they were willing to bear the
cost themselves if they were in the wrong.
When the present government is out
of power, the succeeding attorney general
may be appealed to for the fiat now asked
for, and years from now the legality of
the whole question may be tested, and the
province relieved from the liability it has
assumed, if the present action is proved
to be ultra vires.
Alex Macdonald, treasurer of the citi
zens' committee which is opposed to the
deal, has replied to insinuations by news
papers and others that some corporation
was furnishing money for the fight against
the scheme. He said he had the list of
subscribers from $1 up, and that it was
open to inspection. The list of men whose
names it contained showed the substan
tial character of the movement.
130 Miles of Hew Road.
George H. Strevel, the railway contrac
tor, has been awarded the contract for the
construction of 150 miles on the south
eastern portion of the Canadian Northern
road. This work will complete the gap
at present existing east of Bandette, and
Strevel expects to have it finished this
The work was commenced on Saturday
with some ostentation. Strevel lined up
his outfit of over fifty teams and wagons,
also scrapers, etc., at the Canadian Pa
cific railroad station, and these marched
in a long: procession up Main street, the
line stretching unbroken from MeDermot
avenue to Broadway.
J. L. Hyland, contractor for the Rainy
River bridge, says the new structure will
be ready for traffic in July. He also says
that 2,000 men are engaged on the con
struction work between Beaver Mills and

Washington, June 10.—Within the last
forty-eight hours urgent cable dispatches
TRYING TO DECIDE IT.
Cuba—He loves me —he loves me not.
have been sent from the Cuban colonies
in New York and Washington to Havana,
urging the leaders in the constitutional
convention not to trifle with Uncle Sam
any longer, and warning them that inde
pendence of Cuba is at stake and will be
lost entirely if there is much more delay.
Many of the members of the old Cuban
junta, the men who carried on the prop
aganda in the United States which at last
resulted in the Spanish war, have be
come convinced that their brethren in
Havana are trifling with the destinies of
their.country. The leaders of junta be
gan studying American public opinion
long ago, and the messages they are send
ing to Havana are more than significant.
The leaders of the constitutional con
vention have been warned that if they
don't get a government' of some kind
started before congress meets next De
cember the prospects of complete inde
pendence will be considerably less bright
than they are at present. These warning
messages go on to say that members of
congress and distinguished officials of the
administration bitterly regret the pledges
given in the Teller resolution. The
American sense of honor demands the
fulfillment of this pledge, but the Cuban
radicals are warned that they are playing
directly into the hands of the annexation
ists. They have been told in so many
words that if they adjourn without adopt
ing the Platt amendment or dawdle
along until December the president will
be obliged to send a message to congress
announcing to that body and to the world
that the Cubans have refused to accept
the conditions imposed upon them.
In that case, these resident Cubans say,
congress will inevitably take the ground
that the Cubans have been offered real
independence, have refused to give prop
er guaranties of good government and
that the terms of the Teller resolution
have been followed by congress but re
jected by the Cubans themselves. There

HUNG ON A HOOK AT A DINNER
Trag-ic Ontgrovrth of Horrible Meth
od of Capital Punish
Mew York Sun Spmolml Sai-vlcm
Vienna, June 10. —A grewsome story
comes from Szentoken in Hungary. In
this country the capital punishment by
strangulation is accomplished in a par
ticularly cruel manner, there being no
drop, but merely a species of gallows, to
which the criminal is lifted by the exe
cutioner's assistants, who thereupon pulT
bim downward by his arm until life is
extinct, the executioner meanwhile hast
ening matters by standing on a bench be
hind the victim, twisting the rope with
his hanils, so as to hurry, the strangula
tion. He has it in his power to prolong
the suffering or hasten ths death of the
man, and his action in the matter is said
to depend upon the financial arrangements
which he makes with the relatives and
friends of the culDrit.
Some time ago the executioner of St.
Szentokan, a man named Petrowski, put
to death a xieasant who had been con
demned for a long list of murders, and had
made, as he believed, mutually satisfac
tory arrangements with the man's father.
It seems, however, that they grudged him
the money which he exacted from them,
for about a fortnight after the execution
they invited him to supper, which he un
derstood was to be in the nature of their
obligations toward him for his treatment
of their unfortunate relative.
Whan the repast was half way through,
however, they suddenly fell upon him,
without any warning, bound him, and
then, having fastened a rope around his
neck, suspended him thereby from a hook
in the wall, resuming their seats and
drinking to him while he slowly
strangled to death before their eyes. All
the members of this supper party, ten
men and six women, Hungarian peasants,
have been arrested in connection with the
affair and are now in jail.

fyutm WifheiminaV Visit to Berlin and Mr.
Botha's Mksion to Europe Both
Berlin, June 10.—The Klelnes Journal to-day prints a dispatch from The Hague
saying that Queen Wilhelmina's recent visit here was meant to obtain Emperor
William's consent to end the South African war, both the zweibund and the dreibund
being willing to do so, through The Hague arbitration court, and that the emperor
consented and the court began work thereon. The dispatch has created a sensation
here. The Associated Press has just obtained the following foreign office statement
which is authorized by Count Yon Buelow, the imperial chancellor:
Neither Great Britain, France nor Russia ever approached Germany
to participate in any action aiming at ending the South African war. Ger
many has all along distinguished between offering her good offices and
intervention To render her good offices would be possible if both parties
to the war requested it; but it will be remembered that Great Britain
joined The Hague conference only on condition that the Boer states were
excluded. There is no doubt that Mr. Kruger, who is a serious statesman,
came to Europe to obtain the good offices of several of the powers to end'
the war, but there is also no doubt that Great Britain does not want their
good offices. At least it is true that since the South African war began
Great Britain has never, either verbally or in writing, confidentially or
officially, broached such an idea. It is quite possible that the Boer side
has now formally asked The Hague arbitration court to lend its aid to end
the war somehow, and that the court has held a session regarding the mat
ter, but that, of course, is entirely different from any serious steps to
end the war.
The Hague, June 10.—Mr. Kruger and Dr. Leyds arrived here to-day. They drove
from the railroad station at Hilversum Junction in a closed carriage and are staying
at the residence of Mr. Wolmarans, one of the Boer peace envoys.
London, June 10.—The Sun hears that Mrs. Botha starts Wednesday for The
Hague, where Mr. Kruger has been summoned to attend a conference of the Boer
agents In Europe and the United States to consider the report Mrs. Botha has brought
from her husband, in which he advises Mr. Kruger, as the constitutional head of the
Transvaal, to sue for peace and the best terms available.
London, June 10.—Lord Kitchener in a dispatch from Pretoria under to-day's date
says the number of Boers killed, imprisoned or surrendered during the last month
totaled 2,640. From June 1 to June 9, 26 Boers were killed, 4 were wounded, 409 were
made prisoners and 33 surrendered, and 651 rifles, 115,550 rounds of ammunition, 120
wagons and 4,000 horses were captured.
Two English Authors Die
London, June 10. —Sir Walter Besant, the novelist, died yesterday at his residence
in Hampstead, after a fortnight's illness, from influenza. He was born in 1836.
Besant was to have attended the Atlantic Union dinner to-night and propose £he
toast to "English Speaking Communities."
Sir Walter was born at Portsmouth, England, in 1838, and graduated
at Christ's college, Cambridge. He was chosen to a professorship in the
Royal College of Mauritius and afterward served as secretary to the
Palestine Exploration Fund. Several of his novels were published in collab
oration with James Rice. Sir Walter was founder and first president of
the Society of Authors and was knighted May 24, 1895.
London, June 10. —Sir Robert Williams Buchanan, poet and prose writer, is dead.
He was born Aug. 18, 1841.
Mr. Buchanan was born in Glasgow, Aug. 18, 1841. He was educated at
Glasgow university and went to London in 1860. He published forty vol
umes of novels, plays poems and critical essays. Mr. Buchanan visited
the United States in 1884. He was of controversial nature and published
fierce attacks upon Kipling, Swinburne, Rosetti and other authors.
No Bull Fight After All
Special to The Journal.
Omaha, Neb., June 10. —The great amphitheater with a seating capacity of 10,000,
now being erected for bull fighting purposes at South Omaha, must be pulled down.
The slumbering scruples of Governor Ezra P. Savage have been aroused and he will
not tolerate the amusement within the borders of the state.
The bull fighters had up to this time soothed the prejudices of the American
Humane Society and other humanitarians by showing that no cruelty would be
practiced. Disarmed by this showing Organizer O'Hanlon of the humane society re
turned east and local officials avowed themselves satisfied. A story then went the
rounds that the fight would beas near the real thing as South Omaha could furnish.
This tip reached Governor Savage, who has taken vigorous action. He has served
notice that no bull fighting will be tolerated and has instructed the county officers
to carry out the behest.
Ancient Church in Ruins
Special to The Journal.
Bayfleld, Wis., June 10.—The old Catholic church at La Pointe, Madeline Island,
was totally destroyed by fire early this morning. This church was an ancient land
mark and has been visited by hundreds of tourists annually. The original church
was built in 1835 by Father Baraga and rebuilt at a later date.
lit contained an ancient painting, "The Descent from the Cross," which Indian
tradition says was a gift to the La Polnte mission in 1669 by Father Marquette. It
is the opinion of some that the picture was stolen and the church set on fire to
cover up the loss. There is no insurance.
