ML OIL TO COME
E. S. Rittenhouse Says It Will Soon
TEXAS' GREAT DISCOVERIES
Guiheri at Beaumont Now Produc
ing More Tiian Rest of the
E. E. Rlttenhouae of the Federal Crude
Oil company, who Is here temporarily
after a recent viait to the Beaumont oil
Minneapolis will be usiag fuel oil inside
the next six or eight months. There is a
demand everywhere for cheaper fuel. Oil
solves the problem. Transportation is all
that is needed. Tankships, barges and pipe
lines are being built now. Fuel oil can be
brought to the head of navigation on the
Mississippi and that, in turn, will force rea
sonable rates from the railroads. With a
reasonable rate, fuel oil can be sold here
much cheaper than coal. It is a clean fuel.
No soot, smoke, cinders, sparks nor ashes.
It is perfectly safe.
An idea of the magnitude of this discovery
and its wonderful possibilities as a wealth
producer, can be had from the fact that,
while the oil production of the world has
been but about 138,000,000 barrels per year,
or STB.OOO barrels per day, the flow of the
eleven gushers at Beaubont exceeds 600,000
barrels per day. It costs nothing to produce
the oil, therefore, being in such amazing
quantities, it can be sold cheaply—it is the
general belief that the price will be about
50 cents per barrel. Big profits could be
made at 20 cents per barrel at the well.
The market for tho oil will be as certain as
the market for coal. It will be utilized for
all kinds of heating, from private residencss
to sky scrapers, and for producing steam in
everything, from a tea kettle to an ocean
greyhound. One ton of this crude oil is
equal in heating efficiency to from three to
four tous of soft coal. • It must necessarily
be cheaper than ooal, for the reason that
there will be a great saving in freight rates,
and also in the cost of handling it. Take the
railroads, for instance. There are seven of
them penetrating the Beaumont field, and
they will all use this oil on their engines
for producing steam as soon as it is placed
on the market. The Mexican Central was
the first to announce that it would use oil
on its engines, and it is' preparing to do so
now. In the case of ocean steamships, their
carrying capacity will be largely increased
by using oil, because, by doing so, they will
save both bulk and tonnage over coal. Then
they will save the cost of an army of stokers,
of handling the tons of ashes, and other work
made necessary by burning coal under their
boilers. It is an easy matter to fit an appa
ratus for burning oil to any boiler. All that
is necessary is an attachment for sending a
spray of the oil into the firebox.
Greatest in World.
There is no question but that the Beau
mont oil field is to-day the greatest oil field
in the world. Millions have been invested
there, although not a barrel of oil has yet
been marketed. The price of land in the
vicinity of the gushers has gone up to such
fabulous figures that only a millionaire or a
company with a large capital can buy It.
The man of moderate means cannot even
consider It. The only way In which such a
man can hope to share in the prosperity of
the Beaumont oil fields is to buy stock in
some company that has land in the gusher
district, where the oil is not prospective, but
actually is known to exist.

DEDICATED A CHURCH
Salem English Lutheran Consecrated
Salem English Evangelical Lutheran
church was dedicated yesterday afternoon.
The sermon was preached by Professor
Revere F. Weidner of the Chicago Theo
logical seminary. Dr. Weidner said that
twenty years ago when he was ordained
350,000 Lutherans were in the English
church; now it numbered 1,600,000, an un
j paralleled growth. Rev. George H. Tra
bert, the pastor, gave a short history of
the church, which was organized in
March, 1890. No formal dedication was
held then because the church was not free
from debt. The parsonage which was
built three years ago is also without debt.
The church ha« been thoroughly over

morning sermon was preached by Rev.
William K. Frick of Milwaukee." The
members of the congragation attended the

Barton's Homing Pigeon Won
The 100-mile race of the twin city district of the National Federation of American
Homing Pigeon Fanciers was flown from St. James to Minneapolis yesterday. There
were five lofts in the competition. The birds were liberated by the agent of the
American Express company in a strong east wind and cloudy, heavy weather. The
same conditions prevailed in Minneapolis. The wet wings and feathers of the birds
upon arrival indicated that they had passed through showers between here and St.
James. The dark weather forced the birds to fly above the clouds in order to get
their bearings, and in that way much time was lost. All things considered the re
sults were very satisfactory. The most remarkable performance was that of Fred
May's Crazy, a precocious young bird, out of Milwaukee, which showed wonderful
vitality by finishing well up with the bunch of old birds. Crazy got in the game at
least two months before the average bird is supposed to know anything about the
science of flying against time.
The next race will be flown next Sunday from Worthington, Minn., to Minne
apolis, a distance of 150 miles. Seventy-five birds are already entered in old birds'
I races. Among the best known birds entered are Damon Junior, and one of this
year's R. Banded birds; Fred May's The Meteor.
A large number of fast homers have been entered for the race of Aug. 25. An
other young birds' race will be started Sept. 1. This will be for the championship
silver cup, and the birds will have to cover 150 miles.
There has been a big revival of interest in homing pigeons throughout the coun
[ try, and dove fanciers are arranging meets for this season in all sections.

PRAISE FOR CAILLES
Captain William Edwards Back
From the Philippines.
A GOOD WORD FOR THE 'OUTLAW
Forty-fifth Infuntry Saw Much Serv
ice In the < tiiiurira—
The sun-browned soldiers from the
tropics held a reception on Nicollet ave
nue between Fourth and Fifth streets
this morning. They were Captain "Bil
ly" Edwards and Lieutenant Tibbetts of
Beaver Dam, Wis., both of the Forty
fifth United States infantry, direct from
About every tenth man who passed up
the avenue suddenly grabbed the captain's
hand and exclaimed:
'"Hello, Billy? When dyou get back?"
To which Billy replied that he had just
jumped off the train and was mighty glad
to be back in "the old town."
The Forty-fifth left Manila on the
Transport Sheridan, April 22, and arrived
at San Francisco May 17. The regiment
was put to no inconvenience on the re
turn trip across the ocean. The voyage
was made under perfect conditions over
a glass like-sea.
Captain Edwards will probably return to
the ranks of civil life in Minneapolis.
Later, he may return to the Philippines,
where he thinks excellent business oppor
tunities are offering at this time. He
Auother View of t ailies.
With the surrender of Arahuila, just before
the Forty-fifth sailed from Manila, the back
bone of the Filipino insurrection was finally
broken. Arahuila was one of the toughest
propositions amoug the native generals that
our army has gone against and he repre
sented about all of the organized resistance
that still opposed our arms after Aguinaldo's
cupture. I see by the papers that Cailles
has also surrendered. Cailles was the leader
of a guerrilla band, and at an earlier stage
of the war gave our troops a great deal of
trouble. 1 want to pay this tribute to him—
that he was one of the whitest leaders that
have resisted American encroachments on
Philippine territory. I remember on one oc
casion, alter a brush in which forty of our
soldiers were killed and wo.unded that Caillea,
after declaring a truce, brought in the bodies
of the dead Americans just as they had
fallen. Not a body was mutilated or a uni
form disturbed. The American soldiers had
been paid off just before the action and in
the belts o£ the dead soldiers were hundreds
of dollars in gold. Not a dollar of it was
touched. That looks like civilized warfare,
When we left Manila Aguinaldo was still
busy sending letters to the leaders of guer
rilla bands advising them to surrender and
swear allegiance to the stars and stripes.
General Funstou was entitled to all the credit
given him by the papers for his exploit in
capturing Aguinaldo. It was a daring deed,
skilfully planned and boldly executed. Few
men would have cared to run the risk Fun
When the Forty-fifth first went to the
Philippines it was stationed in Cavite prov
ince, but has spent most of the time sinrt
in the northern and southern Camarines. All
of the volunteer regiments have now beec
mustered out of the service, leaving about
20,000 troops in the islands.
Silent as to Barrows.
Having been a former member of the
Fifteenth Minnesota regiment in which
Colonel Fred Barrows of Minneapolis was
a brother officer, Captain Edwards didn't
care to discuss the scandal as a result
of which the former is now in prison in
Captain Edwards had a touch of malaria
and was sick abed for six weeks on Cor
regidor island. The average white man,
he says, cannot stand the climate longer
than two years at a stretch, when he has
to get out of the country.
The Forty-fifth stopped at Nagasaki,
Japan, on its way back, and was given a
warm reception by the Japanese, who
have a warm feeling for Americans. The
Forty-fifth was mustered into the service
at Fort Snelling, where it was recruited,
in 1599, and sailing for the Philippines in
August of that year. It has seen almost
two years of service.
LOOKED LIKE A POOL
Why Those High Capitol Approach
Bids Were Rejected.
When the state capitol commission ad
vertised for bids for constructing the
steps and' approaches to the new capitol,
it took into account the disappointment
of the St. Cloud people at the time the
contract for the superstructure was let
and it was decided to use St. Cloud gran
ite. When the bids were opened and read
it was found by the commission that the
figures far exceeded what they had calcu
lated upon and it was decided to reject
them all and call for new bids. Since then
nasty insinuations have been made
against the commission by disappointed
parties and their complaints have brought
from Colonel C. H. Graves of the commis
sion the statement that the bids were re
jected simply because the commission
thought the contractors had endeavored
to take advantage of the specification
calling for the one kind of granite and
had pooled to demand a price entirely un

GOOD FOR BARROWS
Letter Received From the Captain's
MEMBERS OF THE COURTMARTIAL
Three <of Them Formed the Board of
Survey— Judye Walte'w
A letter was received in Minneapolis
Saturday from Judge Waite, counsel for
Capt. Fred J. Barrows, the Minneapolis
officer who has achieved such unenviable
notoriety in the Philippines, which puts
Captain Barrows' case in a much more
favorable light. Judge Waite lays par
ticular stress upon the fact that three
members of the courtmartial were officers
who formed the board of survey, and
laight, therefore, have been influenced in
their iindings by motives not altogether
This view is shared by the leading
newspaper in Manila, which has the fol
lowing editorial ujion the subject:
While it is not positively known that the
court which sat upon Captain Barrows' case
found him guilty, there seems to be no doubt
that it did, otherwise he would not have been
incarcerated in Anda street station. But now
that the trial is ended, and one can take a
calm retrospective view of the case, several
things which seemed at the time of minor im
portance stand out in a glamor of indistinc
tiveness. At the time of the trial no one
seemed to notice that three members of the
court-martial were officers who formed the
board of survey that passed upon Barrows'
accounts and declared him short in his ac
countability to the government. If these offi
cers were challenged—and Judge Waite, Bar
rows' counsel, certainly did challenge each
of them separately—why were they allowed to
sit on the court? There can be no doubt
that the verdict of the court, no matter what
it may be, will be set aside by the reviewing
authorities when the fact becomes known
that three officers were members of the board
of survey. There is no doubt In the world
but that Judge, Waite will make a stubborn
fight on this point, and likewise there is no
doubt when the case is reviewed and these
errors found in the proceedings, that Captain
Frederick J. Barrows will go scot free.

TIN PLATE TRUST
It Forces' Small dinners to Leave,
A. B. Hunkins, manager of the Austin Can
ning company's plant, at Austin, Minn., says,
in a recent publication, that the closing
down of the plant is due to the fact that
the tin plate trust is making operations for
all of the small plants unprofitable. Mr.
j Hunkius says that by more than doublicg
orices on tin plate and solder within the
past two years, the trust has put the small
j Dlants in a position where the business is
j unprofitable, and that many small plants
throughout the country are meeting that
experience. The Austin plant, which has
been in operation several years, will be dis

MOLINE NOT IN IT
That Plow Company Did Xot Enter
In view of the persistent rumors regarding
the "plow trust," so-called, the following
communication from William H. Taylor, of
the Moline'Plow company, Moline, 111., to the
editor of Farm Machinery, will be of interest.
Says Mr. Taylor:
"Many publications are containing leading
articles bearing on the combination or plow
trust now agitating the implement world, and
we are frequently listed among the leaders
jas beinsr parties thereto. We trust you wll
favor us with an equally broad publication
that we are not parties to the combine or
nlow trust, and will not become parties to It
| under any circumstances. We believe, how
j ever, that prudence and sound business judg
j ment would properly reserve to us the right
to dispose of our property to individual par-
I ties at any time, provided a satisfactory cash
I price is offered to us. Trusting that in fu
ture publications you will not list us as par
ties to the plow combination, we remain,"

PHONES BURNED OUT
Costly Work of Wind and Electrical
N. W. TELEPHONE CO.'S REPORT
500 Instruments Burned Out in
HouseK and Offices—Repairs
The series of wind and electrical storms
during the past four or five days has
caused the Northwestern Telephone com
pany much trouble with its service and
necessitated the expenditure of several
thousand dollars for repairs. Superinten
dent Christie tir.s morning stated that
since Thursday of last week approximate
ly 3,000 'phones have been disabled, and
that many of the long distance lines have
been down. In a large number of instan
ces the repair of 'phones could be made
from the exchange, and this wes done
within a few hours after the storms. But
it will be necessary to repair at least 500
instruments in the houses, where the
'phones were burned out by lightning.
The company has doubled its construction
and repair force and Mr. Christie says
that if the weather continues fair until
to-morrow morning every 'phone will be
in good working order. It was impossible
to estimate even approximately what the
storms of the past week have cost the
company, but it will run up into the
thousands of dollars.
in many instances the burning out of
the 'phones in residences and offices was
accompanied by a blinding flash that ter
rified women and children.
Dewey Theater Manager Will Claim
Affidavit Wai Iseless.
The defense in the case of W. W. Wit
tig, indicted for perjury in connection
with the affidavit filed by him in connec
tion with his saloon license, will allege a
very curious flaw la the affidavit which,
in the end, may free Wittig from the
clutches of the law at the possible ex
pense of another man—the notary public
who took the acknowledgment.
Mr. Wittig is a member of the firm of
Miller & Wittig, theatrical lessees and
managers, operating a string of theaters
in various cities. Mr. Wittig is in charge
of the Minneapolis house and Mr. Miller
puts in nearly all his time at Milwaukee.
As Mr. Witig tells his story, his first
experience in operating a saloon was the
one which has brought him into trouble.
He had no desire to do so but the lease
called for it and he acceded. The agent
for the Schlitz Brewing company managed
the license matter and Mr. Wittig's recol
lection was that he had never taken oath
in connection with the signature in ques
tion. He was unfamiliar with the modus
operandi and remembers distinctly sign
ing the affidavit in question, which he
supposed was merely the application.
But the strange part of the whole mat
ter, and the feature upon which the de
fense will base its strongest hopes, Is the
fact that the acknowledgment of the no
tary public is for the signature of Mr.
Miller, as well as that of Mr. Wittig,
when, ac a matter of fact, on the day in
question, Mr. Miller was in Milwaukee
and Mr. Wittig was In this city.
The explanation is made that the ac
knowledgment of the notary was taken
for Mr. Wittig and the affidavit then sent
on to Milwaukee for a similar acknowl
edgment and signature on the part of Mr.
Miller. The latter, not understanding the
situation, simply affixed his signature and
sent the paper back and it was placed on
file, an utterly worthless piece of paper.
MORRILL IS ANGRY
Tbe Attorney Was Arrested by a
An officer of the police department, one
whom the mayor has mounted on a noble
charger, will soon appear as defendant in
a lawsuit in which the allegation will be
the misuse of his authority. Frank H.Mor
rill is highly indignant at the actions of the
officer on the night of the Woodman
parade, when he was taken in tow by the
policeman and marched down to the cen
tral police station on the theory that he
was a disturber of the public quiet. The
lawyer's offense was that of vociferously
applauding one of the Forester teams.
"I have no 'grudge' against the offi
cer," saiii Mr. Morrill this morning, "but
it simply isn't right, this everlasting dis
play of authority by the police where
there is no reason for it. I have heard
many complaints, and I have now had a
taste of it myself, and in the interests
of society I think I ought to push this
case. Yes, I think I shall go on with it.
The charge, of course, will be false im
prisonment. I was not lodged behind the
bars, I know, but that officer impeded
my locomotion without cause, and that
under the law constitutes false imprison

C. G. Glidden Here to Attend X. W.«
Charles G. Glidden of Lowell, Mass., is
at the West. Mr. Glidden is president of
the Northwestern Telephone company, and
is here to attend the annual meeting of
the stockholders of that corporation, which
takes place to-morrow. He is also presi
dent of several other telephone corpora
tions and a director in the Erie company,
the corporation which controls and owns
several systems, including the North
western. "The demand for increased
telephone service is not sectional," said
Mr. Glidden, but comes from every part
of the country. The telephone has in
creased greatly in popular famor during
the last five years. The general pros
perity of the country has also had much
to do with the demand for increased serv
ice. Nearly every state in the union will
see an improvement in telephone facilitiea
Mr. Glidden had nothing new to an

would get her share of improvements in
the long-distance service.
