? Mr. Wake, something transpired <$>
<§> yesterday about the serving of a war- <$>
<•> rant of this court that I wish you <§>

V reluctance by the officer in charge to <$>
<•> serve the warrant in this case, and <$>
<§► I thereupon directed the clerk to turn <$>
<$> it over to the sheriff. I am now In- <$>
<£ formed that one of the officers of this [<&
<$ court went over to the place where <§>
<?> the warrant was to be served, and •-•>
<♦> arrived there Just before the deputy ■$>
<& sheriffs. If there is anything wrong, <£>
<•> any attempt to thwart the service of vj>
<j> this warrant from this court, I wish <$>
<* you would investigate the matter and <♦>
— bring the guilty party into court, if <$>
<S> there be one. The proper way, per- <$>

Following the above instructions from
the court given to-day, there will be an
Investigation which promises to reveal
things which the Minneapolis police de
partment may not care to have known.
For one thing, the peculiar and 6trenuous
friendliness of the police toward the
gambling fraternity will probably be
proved in a way which will convince
everybody except those who absolutely
won't see. It may be that legal proofs as
to the reason for this friendliness may be
beyond reach of the investigators, but
they will not be beyond the grasp of citi
zens sufficiently intelligent to add two and
two. Briefly the facts seem to indicate
that members of the police department
tried to hamper or even prevent a raid on
a Washington avenue gambling house. The
court knew what was going on all the
time and the order this morning was the
The Watchful Gamblers.
Sam Christians alleges that he lost $165
In Loomis' gambling house, 113 Washing
ton avenue S, and he wanted restitution.
He said he had been offered $75 in com
promise but had refused. The case lay
thus when he stated it to Assistant City
Attorney Waite yesterday afternoon. Mr.
Waite was at the municipal court and
after hearing Christians' general state
ment, asked him to step into the attor
neys' waiting room off the court chambers.
All this time a lawyer, who has frequently
acted as the gamblers' fiscal agent in com
promising cases, was pacing the hall out
side Municipal Court Clerk Allen's office,
watching to see that Christians did not go
in to swear out a complaint. So long as
that document was not issued there was
still hope of compromise and no danger of
a costly raid.
The lawyer was seen by Clerk Allen and
his purpose was guessed. Now, between
one of the rooms of Allen's suite and that
of Mr. Waite there is a door which is usu
ally locked. Through this door Christians
was finally admitted to the clerk's quar
ters, and after a consideration of his in
formation, a search warrant against
Loomis' place and a warrant charging
Loomis with operating a gambling house
were issued. Meantime the watchful law
yer was pacing the hall in sublime ignor
ance of the fact that what he especially
wished to prevent was already happening.
The Police "Reluctance."
Clerk Allen determined to give the po
lice a chance to show their disposition in
serving papers of this sort. There were
four officers in the room reserved for the
policemen detailed to the service of the
court. The head of the squad is not sup
posed to go outside to eerve papers, but
assigns a subordinate to the work. Court
Sergeant Dudley was in charge yesterday.
Allen handed him the papers for imme
diate service. Dudley demurred, but
finally went to a 'phone to call up a supe
rior officer. This officer could not be
reached and Dudley donned his hat and
ccat and started out with the papers.
Allen's suspicions had been aroused by the
delay, and when Dudley replied, in an
iwer to an inquiry, that he was going to
"handle the case in his own way," the
clerk decided it best to employ service
which promised more assuring speed. He
requested the return of the warrants, but
Dudley flatly refused to hand them over.
"Very well," said Allen, "but we'll have
to have those papers." And in three min
uies Judge Holt had stopped another case
and made an order under which the war
rants were handed back to Allen.
In this connection it is well to remem
ber that theoretically police officers are
detailed to the municipal court for the
use and convenience of that tribunal and
not to hinder it.
Sonic Quick Work Done.
Allen hurried with the warrants to the
sheriff, requesting immediate service.
First, however, he dispatched one of his
own clerks to wu.tch the Loomis place and
report arrivals. Deputy Sheriffs Algate
Anderson and John Wall went on the run
to serve the papers. Xot being familiar
with the premises at "113,' 'they paused a
moment at the 1 entrance to determine the
Ideation of the gambling-rooms. It was
a costly delay, but not a fatal one; Burke
O'Brien, former alderman and recently
appointed by the mayor as municipal
court officer, came by at a band gallop and
hurried upstairs to a door subsequently
discovered to lead to the gambling-rooms.
He held a hasty conversation with the
man behind the peep-hole and then Burke
walked down, remarking to the deputies:
"No use, boys, you can't get in; place's
Anderson and Wall did not accept the
advice. They set their shoulders to the
door without further pa - and burst it
in and found exactly wb \. hey expected
Within a minute or two Police Inspector
Kick Smith hurried on to the scene but
he was too late to assist the deputies—if
that was what he came for.
Paraphernalia worth about $1,000 was
seized by the deputies.
TliiuifK to Find Out.
The investigation ordered by Judge Holt
will have to do not only with Dudley's ac
tions in the case but also with the Paul
Revere Journey of Officer Burke O'Brien.
It will also be in order to ascertain the
exact errand of Inspector Smith and the
size, weight and height of the little bird
which bears the news so speedily from
the municipal court to police headquar
ters. Also there may be some inquiry as
to the authority by which this tale-bearer
Christiana' Testimony Taken.
In court this morning the testimony of
Christians was taken in order to prevent
the possibility of any tampering with the
complaining witness. Contrary to custom
in police court, a stenographic report of
the testimony was made. The case was
then continued to Friday morning at 9:30.
Christians told of three visits he had
made to the gambling-house at 113 Wash
ington avenue S, of which Loomis is the
alleged proprietor. These visits were on
June 14, 16 and 17. He had found there,
he said, gambling devices and games of
all sorts, including roulette, faro and craps.
He had played roulette and craps. He had
won a little at first, but his net loss ag
gregated $165. Later, he said, he returned
to the house and saw Loomis and atTied
him to make up his loss. The alleged
proprietor had cautiously refused to nego
tiate with the young man, but a represen
tative was sent to talk with him. This
man, Christians said, offered him $25 in
settlement. This Christians refused and
then, according to the testimony, he was
offered $35. Christians did not consider
this satisfactory and he went to police
headquarters and had an interview with
the chief of police. Later, he said, he
had a conference with Tom Brown, sec
retary to the mayor. He said that he
then returned to the gambling-house and
had another talk with the attendant and
was offered first $50 and then $75.
This time, according to the testimony,
Loomis' representatives told Christians
that he had eight "houses" in the city to
look after; that they were not paying
much money, and that $75 was all he could
offer in settlement. Then Christians
swore out a warrant for the arrest of

gers on board was wrecked last night off
Cape Ballard. All on board are safe.
The Lusitania was built at Liverpool by
Laird Bros., in 1871. She is 379 feet 9
inches long, has 41 feet 3 inches beam and
is 27 feet 7 inches deep.
The Lusitania was bound round Cape
Race for Montreal with a large cargo and
a shipload.of passengers. She mistook her
course in a dense fog and went ashore
near Renews, twenty miles north of Cape
Race, before daybreak. The ship ran over
a reef and hangs against a cliff. The
passengers, who are mostly emigrants,
were panic stricken. They stampeded and
fought for the boats, but were overcome
by the officers and crew, who secured con
trol after great trouble and a prolonged
struggle with the rougher element among
the passengers, who used knives. The
women and children were first landed and
the men followed. The crew stood by the
ship. A heavy sea was running, but at
latest advices the Lusitania was holding
her own. It is thought however she will
prove a total wreck.
"Were Any Drowned?
The passengers had a terrible experi
ence. The first knowledge which they
had of the disaster was when, owing to
the ship rasping over the rocks, they were
all hurled from their berths by the shock.
Many of them were bruised,'and they all
hurrffed on the deck in their night clothes.
A scene of great excitement ensued. Five
hundred people were clamoring to escape,
while the crew tried to pacify them and
launch the boats. The male passengers
in their attempt to seize the boats, tram
pled the women under foot and fought
the crew with knives. Some of the more
cool-headed of the passengers assisted the
crew in the effort to get out the boats.
One boat was upset and it occupants
immersed. It is still supposed that some
of these were drowned, but that point has
not yet been definitely established. An
other boat having on board twenty per
sons, has not yet been reported. She is
supposed to be adrift in the fog, and this
may have given rise to the report which
reached here that twenty persons were
drowned by the upsetting of a boat. The
women and children rescued were almost
naked. Drenched with spray, they were
pulled up the cliffs by the coast people.
Some of the boats were demolished in the
surf while attempting to land and their
half-drowned occupants held on to rocks,
Bhivering with cold, until rescued.
This morning, the unhappy passengers,
after shivering for hours on the ship top,
tramped over weary miles in their en
deavor to reach the houses of the fisher
men, where they are now sheltered.. Pre
vious to reaching the cliffs, the passen
gers passed two hours of terrible anxiety
on the wreck.

Washington, June 26.—Much satisfac
tion is expressed in administration cir
cles here over the determination of the
Ohio republicans to give their state cam
paign this year a national acharacter. It
is possible that the result of the election
will to a large degree determine the gen
eral republican policy in congress next
session as to tariff reform, reciprocity,
trusts and the Babcock bill; especially if
the Ohio democrats improve their op
portunity by adopting a platform demand
ing moderate tariff revision and indirectly
indorsing Babcock. The issues will then
be joined and there is danger that a
sweeping republican victory may be used
as an argument that the party does not
want the Dingley law interfered with.
High tariff republicans will be' glad to
give the Ohio result such an interpreta
The democrats recognize the importance
of the campaign and are said to be pre
paring to put their best speakers into the
field. Their platform will be carefully
worded and will present to Ohio some of
the things which the party hopes will de
velop into issues by next year.
A small republican majority in Ohio would
be the best thing that could happen to Mr.
Babcock and his friends, for it is possible
that a large republican majority may
bring the party more completely than
ever under the control of the ultra pro
St. Cloud's Public Building.
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Taylor to-day notified the Larkin com
pany of Chicago that the department
could not accept the company's proposal
for additional work to be done on the St.
Cloud building, and submitted a counter
proposition. The contractors were also
told that if the department's proposition
is not accepted the contract will be an
nulled and new proposals advertised for.
When congress allowed an additional
$10,000 for this building it was decided to
makti the building fireproof. After the
contract for construction had been let the
Larkin company was asked to submit a
proposal for changes. It was considered
too high and an effort was made to have
the company change its figures. It re
fused, and to-day's ultimatum is the re
sult. Taylor refused to make the figures
public, but says the contractors want
more than the government has on hand,
and more than would be paid if money
Harding Hard to Get Rid Of.
Indian Agent Harding of Yankton had
a long conference with Secretary Hitch
cock late yesterday, at which Indian Com
missioner Jones was preEent. Both the
secretary and commissioner refused to
say anything about the result of the con
ference, and Harding has left for home.
It is understood, however, that he got
little satisfaction from his visit to Wash
ington. The charges which were investi
gated by Inspector Graves were serious,
and his report recommended summary re
moval. The secretary, however, indicated
to Harding's friends that he would allow
him to resign, but Harding was deter
mined to stick. It is probable that un
less he does as the secretary has indi
cated he will be removed, despite his
powerful backing in South Dakota.

Fields of the West
Mmw York Sun Somolmt Smrvlom
Burlingame, Kan., June 26.-Drlven to desperation by sight of their rich fields
being ruined for want of harvesters, a party of twenty Osage county farmers held
up a westbound Santa Fe train last night to obtain the help necessary for reaping
their grain. No 55 was pulling out of Peterson, a small town a few miles south of
riere, when four husky, heavily armed farmers entered the engine cab and ordered
the engineer to stop at a certain crossing a mile south of that place. At the same
time others pointed revolvers at the conductor and brakeman and when the train
stopped compelled them to cut loose from the two emigrant cars containing harvest
hands bound for the western fields.
The engineer was compelled to move the fore part of the train on down the
track, where it was held. 1 Meantime there was a fierce conflict going on between the
harvesters, who resented the vigorous measures taken by the would-be employers.
Clubs, ballast, shot guns and revolvers were brought into play, and for half an
hour the battle raged fiercely. Finally, however, after several of each party had
been severely injured, a compromise was effected by several persons not engaged in
the conflict, and the 200 harvesters agreed to work in Osage county at $3.50 a day.
The two cars were soon emptied, the harvesters going across the prairie guided
by the farmers. The train was recoupled and backed up to Burlingame..

New York, June 26.—Alderman Elias Goodman of the thirty-first district spent

the lack of farm hands in the great wheat-growing states of the west and the heroic
methods to which the farmers are resorting to get help. Mr. Goodman got through
with the papers in the late afternoon, and went out for a walk. He met half a
dozen strong, husky men, who told him that they wanted to work and could get
nothing to do. All of them said that they needed money and all of them wanted to
have the alderman give it to them. The alderman thought of the stories he had
read of the western farmers and decided that he ought to do something about tha

Woodsman Killed by Wolves
Special to The Journal.
Weyauwega, Wis., June 26.—John Hochstock of Mellen went hunting June 16
and failed to return. Parties were organized, and after a prolonged search one of
them came upon the scene of a terrible struggle. Scattered around a large open
space in the woods they found the carcass of seven wolves. The only trace found of
Hochstock was a few bones, torn shreds of clothing, which were identified as his,
a watch which belonged to him and $65 in a pocket of his trousers.
The sod was torn up and deep foot-prints of the man's boots were all about,
showing that he had met the onslaught of the savage beasts with the phenomenal
strength and fortitude of a man who sees death staring him in the face. Woods
men are unable to account for the attack, as the wolves at this time of the year are
generally not fierce.
Senator Platt Discusses Cuba
New York, June 26.—The next issue of the Independent will contain a paper
under the caption, "The Pacification of Cuba," written by Senator Orvllle H. Platt.
In closing, the writer uses these words:
One question must be asked: Will the new government succeed?
Some conditions in Cuba are favorable to success, some are not. The
United States cannot be satisfied with the ordinary South American
republic. It must be a real republic, that will insure our peace and
quiet and safeguard our interest there. A mere paper republic, with
a virtual dictator or constantly recurring revolutions, would be nearly
as disastrous to Cuba and dangerous to the United States as was the
Spanish domination to which we put an end.

Herbert Spencer's Voice for Peace
London, June 26. —Herbert Spencer has written a letter pleading tor mitigation of

Whatever fosters militarism makes for barbarism; whatever fosters
peace makes for civilization. There are two fundamentally opposed prin
ciples on which social life may be organized—compulsory co-operation
and voluntary co-operation—the one implying coercive institutions, the
other free institutions. Just in proportion as militant activity is great
does the coercive regime more pervade the whole society. Hence, to
oppose militancy is to oppose return toward despotism. My fear is that the
retrograde movement will become too strong to be checked by argument
