is to meet with determined opposition in
his own party. - The "stalwarts" are or

THIEVES ARE BUSY
Never Before Have Railroads Suf-
fered So From Them.
"BRASSES" ARE THEIR PLUNDER
Whole Trains of Freight Can Ren
dered Temporarily Useless by
Their Depredation*. '
The police have again been asked to co
operate with the railroad authorities in
stopping the wholesale theft of Jour
nal brasses and wheat. This work
started up suddenly about six months ago.
Since then it has increased gradually till
the losses have reached an unprecedented
figure. During the past month or two the
nightly raids have been bo numerous that
the email force of detectives which the
roads maintain has been inadequate for
tho protection of the property. The Soo,
Great Northern, St. Louis, Omaha, and
Milwaukee lines have sustained losses dur
ing the past few months aggregating sev
eral thousand dollars. The booty secured
by the robbers will not net teem as many
hundred.
Never until the present year, according
to statements of railroad men, have the
criminal classes In Minneapolis taken up
the work of pilfering cars and carried it
on and on bo systematically. Some of the
roads have engaged extra men to watch
their cars in the railroad yards In this
city, but alone they have not been able
to do very effective work. The robbers
were so crafty that comparatively few
were apprehended. So the police were ap
pealed to. Chief Ames will have his men
do whatever possible in this direction.
The "brasses," upon which the weight
of the car rests, are in the box around
the axle. The Journal box is easily Jacked
up and the brass slipped out. Then the
Jack is removed and the box Itself allowed
to fall onto the axle. As soon as the car
is moved, the Iron of the box cuts into the
axle and ruins it. It Is then necessary to
replace not only the axle but the entire
set of wheels which are keyed on. The
brass, if sold, will bring the seller about
$2.10. It costs not less than $40 to replace
the wheels.
Air Brakes Stripped.
There is but one other pieces of brass
about the freight car, and the robber has
found that. It is In what is known as the
triple valve, a small part of the air brake
equipment. By unscrewing the end of the
air reserve tank beneath the car, a small
piece of braes, weighing ten or twelve
pounds can be secured. This will bring
$2 or less in the market. The brake 1b
useless without the brass and cannot be
repaired. A new one must be bought.
This costs $25.
Railroaders say they have never seen
so extensive robberies as have been re
ported during the past few months. Less
than two months ago twenty cars of the
Soo line, standing in the yards near Cam
den Place, were stripped of their brasses.
At Hutchinson Junction, just outside of
the city limits, a few days ago, the Great
Northern lost twenty brasses. Every road
that leaves cars standing in the Minneap
olis yards has sustained heavy losses. It
has been very hard to catch the looterß.
A few days ago one man who lives on
Eighth avenue N, was found with seven
brasses in his possession. One had been
taken from a Great Northern car, another
from the Omaha, a third from the Milwau
kee and two each had been the property
of the Soo and the St. Louis.
Small Boy* Steal Wheat.
During the past six months the small
boy seems to have developed a strong
kleptomaniacal tendency. His mania has
been wheat stealing from freight railroad
cars. More care have been robbed of
wheat since the first of the year than for
double that period for many years, accord
ing to reports of railroad and elevator
men. In almost every case where the rob
bers were apprehended, they proved to be
boys, ranging from twelve to nineteen
years. In most instances it was found
that the offense was their first and the
court imposed a sentence to the training
school and suspended it during good be
havior. Those who had committed crime
before were sent over the road. Only this
morning four youngsters, two of them
eighteen and two twelve years old, were
convicted of stealing wheat and were
placed on probation. They had cut the
seals of cars and taken two bushels of
grain. During the past month F. W. Her
rick, a Great Northern detective, alone
caught some twenty boye stealing grain
from the company's cars, and saw them
sentenced"by the court.
SEWAGE IN LORING PARK
Another Phase of Bad Smells There
—No Water Supply.
The Journal's exposure of the con
dition of the lake in Lorlng park has
brought to light other facts in connection
with the unsanitary conditions there.
One of them Is that the lake is very low
this summer. The reason for this is that
the supply of water which has always
been given the lake has been cut off. For
weeks the pipe has been off duty. This
naturally reduces the water level in the
lake, as evaporation is rapid duing the
hot weather, and especially such hot
weather as has been experienced this
summer.
Another fact is this: During the heavy
rains earlier In the season the sewers on
the Willow street side of the park over
flowed and their contents were washed
down into the jiark and lake. In two
rains the force of water was so stong as
to lift the man-hole covers along Grant
street, near the park. The presence of
sewage on the grass plots between the
street and the lake was evident to any
one who crossed the park—if he had the
usual olfactory organs.
For a long time the tennis courts would
not dry in the lowest parts because of
the greasy deposit on the grass—sewage
and nothing else. It is not particularly
agreeable to the people about Loring park
to think of the lake being a deposit for
sewage.

BOOSTING THE COST
Poor Farm Expense Estimates
Reach the Four Cipher Stage.
ITEMS OF LAST YEAR'S EXPENSE
They Indicate That the Beat of
Everything Wu lined and
Plenty of It.
In the estimates for next year's ex
penditures for "poor farm" purposes the
county commissioners are going to ask
the board of tax levy next month, for a
straight $10,000; about one-fifth of the
amount for permanent Improvements. The
amount they have already fixed upon for
the taxpayers to furnish, la more than
ever before, which is shown by the
amounts asked for that purpose during
the past six years.
1896 6,000 1899 7,800
1897 6,000 1900 8,600
1898 8,000 1901 8,776
1802 10,000
Of course, the board of tax levy have
never granted them as much as they
asked for, but this year's figures show
they are after all they can get. There is
no doubt but what the poor farm expen
ditures last year were very heavy, but
now they ask for still more. In 1900 they
bought over 370 cords of wood for that
institution, or more than a cord for every
day in the year, which cost the county
$1,905.44 for that item alone. Another
important purchase was flour. They
bought the very best grade that is sold
In this market and took eighty barrels of
it. Kerosene oil they seem to have needed
greatly, so bought 572 gallons of the best,
or about six quarts for every day in the
year, summer and winter. It cost the
county $70 to keep the hard wood floors at
the poor farm properly oiled during 1900.
Those items are only quoted to show
what the poor farm management, for the
past few years, has given the taxpayers
of the county, who have no voice in such
matters, except when it comes time for
an election. To show that the people im
prove that opportunity, it is only neces
sary to refer to the fact, that last year
the poor farm committee consisted of
Messrs. Wilkins, Egan and Ryberg. The
first two were not returned to the board
by the voters at the primary election. The
present board consists of Messrs. Nash,
Sweet and Smith, and Mike Nash is chair
man of the committee. Prom present in
dications the people have little to expect
in the way of economy from the new
board, for the poor farm appropriation
they have now asked for is nearly 50 per
cent in excess of the average expendi
ture for that purpose during the past six
years. The people naturally expected a
reduction, father than an increase in
county expenditures.
ALMOST HUMAN
Xorris «fc Rowe'i Trained Animals
Can Almost alk.
Norris & Rowe's big trained animal
shows entertained two large audiences
yesterday and again this afternoon, under
their tents at Thirteenth street and
Nicollet avenue. If one could believe in the
marvellous stories told in the Arabian
Nights, of how prince and princess were,
by some magical enchantment, turned into
ponies and other animals, it would be easy
to understand the almost human intelli
gence with which the animals of Norris &
Rowe's shows are gifted. A believer in
those remarkable tales could readily un
derstand how "Fargo" had been a warrior
bold of noble blood, transformed by some
evil genii into this smart little elephant.
The Imagination running in this channel,
could %jce another life for each of the
beautiful animals with this wonderful
show. The performance can be viewed as
another illustration of the power given to
man at the creation over inferior, but
hardly less loveable animals. The show
is a very meritorious one, and every boy
and girl should see it. Performances were
announced for to-day at 2:30 and 8:15 p. m.

Soiry it happened. Did not know who Mr.

it up at some future date."
DIPHTHERIA EPIDEMIC
Dr. Bracken of the State Board of
Health Fears One.
Dr. H. M. Bracken, secretary of the
state board of health, fears a serious epi
demic of diphtheria this winter. There
are many cases in the state now, when
there should be a minimum of sickness
from diphtheria: There Is too great care
lessness in quarantine. The disease is
quite prevalent in the northern part of
the state, and there are a number of cases
in St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Dinavow Bad Intentions.
The new law making desertion on the part
of the husband a criminal offense, is not
working as smoothly as migirt be. Dis
affected spouses have discovered that here is
a loophole and many of them are taking
advantage of it. The law provides that the
sinner may enter a plea of good Intention and
thus evade it, and local officials estimate
that hundreds of those who are now In the
western harvest fields have left families here
on the pretext that they are going to search
for work, who have no intention of return

NO MINERS' STRIKE
The Big Steel Corporation Fight
, Won't Affect Them.
MINN. LEADS IN ORE SHIPMENTS
This Year They Will Exceed Com
bined Shipments of 'Wisconsin,
and Michigan.
Dwight E. Woodbridge, of Duluth, who
is in the city to-day, says the steel mak
ers' strike will not extend to the ore
mining regions of the northwest, and that
the strike, however general it may be,
unless it happens to be far more lengthy
than has been expected, will not be great
ly felt in the Minnesota ore fields. There
are no unions among the ore miners, they
i are well taken care of, have far better pay
than they have ever heard of before, with
safe, comfortable and agreeable work and
they will not strike out of sympathy or
for anything else.
"There is some complaint," saya he,
"that ore is not moving as freely from the
Menominee and Marquette ranges, in
Michigan, as had been hoped and by the
public this is laid to the strike. But in
fact the strike has nothing to do with It.
Indeed there has never been such a move
ment of ore toward furnaces of the east
as now and the past two months have
broken all records. If the Michigan ranges
are lagging behind. It is because their ores
are not wanted at the cost or cannot be
had as wanted Just now.
"Minnesota this year, for the first time,
will ship more iron ore than the states of
Michigan and Wisconsin combined, and is
already considerably ahead of them in the
season's total. It is not probable that this
state will ever be behind them again, and
the lead may be expected to increase as
time passes.
"In Duluth the closing of a deal by which
the United States Steel Corporation gets a
15-year lease on a $300,000 building to be
erected by some of Its officials Is a matter
for congratulation, though there isn't any
great lack of office room in the city. It
will centralize the great company's lake
and rail transportation interests, and all
its mining connections, in Minnesota,
Michigan, Wisconsin or elsewhere in the
northwest under one roof. The company
is not only the biggest miner of the world
but the biggest steamship operator."
MORE THROUGH CARS
An Enlarged Service to Wildwood
and Stillwater.
Now that the Banda Rossa season at
Lake Harriet is over, the trip by trolley
to beautiful Wildwood on White Bear lake
is becoming more and more popular. The
experiment of through cars without
change from Minneapolis to Wildwood end
Stillwater has been so successful that the
street railway management has decided to
enlarge the service and make it better
than ever. Supt. Hield has arranged a
new schedule which will go into effect
next Saturday. Under this schedule there
will be more Sunday through cars and the
week day service -will include afternoon as
well as evening cars to Wildwood. The
full schedule is as follows:

CALLS FOR THE TRUTH
Follcebladet DUcuf»e* the GJertaen
Caie at Length.
The official organ of the Free church,
Folkebladet, devotes much Bpace to the
M. Palk Gjertsen case in this week's 1b-
Bue. It takes the position that this mat
ter must be brought to a close as soon as
possible, which can be done only by the
truth being known. Folkebladet believes
that what Is said about Mr. Gjertsen is of
such a nature that If it Is not true it
must not be said and if it is true must not
be said about a clergyman. Four columns
are given up to the report of the church
meeting of July 81. in addition to an edi
torial.
In the same issue Is printed the opinion
of the chief of police and chief of detec
tives of Christ iania. Among other facts
the police call attention to the opinion of
Expert State Chemist Schmelck and Bank
Director Adler that the anonymous letter
was written by Mr. Gjertsen. Upon re
ceipt of the findings of these experts In
penmanship an officer was sent to the
hotel to detain Mr. Gjertsen, but he had
left. The letter expresses the belief of the
Christiania police that Mr. Gjertsen left
that city to escape arrest.

SOO MAKES THE! RATE
It Quote. & Cent a Mile for tlte
G. A. It.
th«T ra,! Paßßen«er Agent Callaway of
xae soo naa announced that he will put a
cent-a-mile rate into effect between the
twin cities and Cleveland for the G A R
encampment. This came as a surprise to
the Western Passenger association which
has but recently turned down the applica
tion of the Q. A. R. for that rate. While
it is not yet stated that the rate will apply
to North Dakota, the Chicago lines fear
that it will and they await the official an
nouncement of the new rate with interest
The Chicago-Twin City lines have made a
rate of one fare plus ?2.00 for the round
trip. The roads east of Chicago have made
a rate of one cent per mile which makes
the fare from the Twin Cities to Cleveland
$20.35. The Soo's action will reduce the
amount to $14.82. It is believed that the
other lines will be forced to meet the Soo
rate.
JUST IN TIME
Western Exodus of Harvest Help Is
Very Heavy. .
Yesterday's movement of harvest hands
through the Twin Cities was the largest
since the special rate of $5 to all Minneso
ta or Dakota points was made. Northern
.Pacific, Great Northern and Soo trains
carried thousands of men into the harvest
fields. Railroad officials believe that the
problem of farm help has been solved. Last
week's movement was unsatisfactory but
the movement since Monday has been very
large. Labor for railway and other con
struction work is hard to obtain. Employ
ment agents are deluged with orders which
they cannot fill.
Montana Central Improvements.
The Grer.^ Northern is Improving the Mon
tana Centril line with new track and a new
bridge across the Missouri river, whioh forms
a part of the new cut off construction be
tween Portage, Mont, and Great Palls. The
track laying machine which is being used on
the work lays from a. mile and a half to two
miles of rails per day. It is estimated that
the saving to the system over tho old plan is
$200 per day. The big bridge will be 850 feet
long and one of the most important on tho
system.
Disappointed in Oklahoma.
Homeseekers who went to Oklahoma and
failed to draw the right numbers In the land
lottery, are coming to the northwest. A party
of ninety-six were In the city last evening
on their way to North Dakota in search of
laud.
Railroad Notes.
On the New York Stock Exchange 98 was
bid for Northern Pacific common but none
offered at any price.
Burlington, Cedar Raplda & Northern eam
ingß for July were $387,246, increase $31,608;
from Jan. 1, |2,743,181, increase $1-19,740.
George B. Reeve, vice president and gen
eral manager of the Grand Trunk railroad,
was yesterday elected president of the At
lantic & St. Lawrence Railway company.
Tourist travel west is very heavy. The
Northern Pacific sent out Its Tuesday night's
train In two sections, and the same occurred
again last night. Most of it is Yellowstone
Park travel.
The Central Passenger association Is in ses
sion at Jamestown, N. Y. The report of the
western committee on division of immigrant
and colonist traffic 1b expected to precipitate
sharp discussion.
The Missouri Pacific, through President
George J. Gould, has filed amended articles
of Incorporation with the secretary of state
at Lincoln, Neb., adding |45,000,000 to the
capital stock of the road.
The Great Northern displayed good earn
ings' power during July, as an offset to
earlier deficits. Its monthly statement Just
issued gives the earnings for the month as
$2,679,558, an Increase of $415,710 over the
same period last year. Business on all three
north coast lines is now remarkably good.
CREOSOTED BLOCKS
May Be Substituted for Cedar On
Tenth Street.
If there are wooden creosoted blocks on
the market and they can be obtained
speedily, it is likely that the residents of
South Tenth street, between Park avenue
and Fourth avenue south, will be allowed
to substitute that kind of a pavement for
the cedar block pavement ordered for that
street. W. J. Murphy made a strong ap
peal to the paving committee of the coun
cil yesterday for some other material than,
cedar blocks. He would be satisfied with
asphalt or creosoted blocks. C. H.
Pettit and other property owners de
clared that they would never consent
to the use of asphalt, but would
agree to the creosoted blocks. The
$1.50 per square yard. The creosoted
blocks will cost about $2.35, it is es
timated. The city engineer will wire
to Chicago to-day to ascertain if the
blocks can be obtained in sumcient
quantity and the committtee will meet
again to-morrow to take final action.
AN UNRUX.Y PATIENT.
State Agent Gates aQd Deputy Sheriff Lang
of St. Paul had a serious time In deporting
Bird Babbitt, the insane man, to Saglnaw,
Mich. From the time the train left St. Paui
to Jackson, Mich., the help of bystanders was
required, and at that point he was put in jail
for a time. Mr. Gates is suffering bruises
