fact that the lowa veterans of the civil

those of any other state, but adds that
lowa regiments suffered most. Their
death loss was 13,000 out of a total en

FOOTBALLJDN A CAR
High School Man and a Conductor
on Opposing Sides.
Earl Pierce, of 816 Delaware street SE,
a member of the East High school football
team, failed to kick-a goal in the munici
pal court this morning and was penalized
$5. It all came about through Earl's dex
terity in "tackling" one Fred Olson, a
guard on a stret car, at Henenpin avenue
and Third street yesterday. Olson didn't
stop the car soon enough to please the
passengers who were just returning from
a sanguinary engagement with the South
high. Pierce yelled; "Two, thirty-six,
forty-seven, twenty-one." Then he and
his companions formed a flying wedge and
forced Conductor Olson to the rear plat
form, and thence over the rail to the gut
ter for a gain of thirty yards. In the
scrimmage Olson's face was badly bruised
and cut. When he tried to "block"
Pierce the latter resorted to "rough play".
The men were both given $5 or 5 days
for disorderly conduct. The testimony
showed that while both sides were aggres
sive, Olson struck the first blow when he
■lapped Pierces face.

LATEST REPORT OF GEM. HUGHES
Some Unsatisfactory Condition* 'In
the War-Ravaged District
Pointed Oat.
How York Sun Some I*l amrvtom
Washington, Oct. 19.—The recent at
tack upon Company E of the Ninth regi
ment in the Island of Samar, was the
second time within a month that the reg
iment had suffered an attack by the in
surgents of Samar. It was on Sept. 28
that more than forty men of Company C
were massacred, the company being sur
prised while at breakfast by a large band
of rebels.
From an examination of the map of the
Samar region, the department officials
believe that a detachment of the Ninth
infantry was ascending the river Bangag
hon to Gandara, an important town about
twenty miles from the seacoast, and that
when nearing this place they were rushed
by the 'bolomen. The scene of the con
flict is less than fifty miles from Cat
balgon, the military headquarters of the
island, and illustrates the daring of the
natives in venturing so near.
This latest attack is viewed with some
apprehension by tiie military authorities
here, and there is a belief that General
Hughes has underestimated the fighting
: strength of the insurgents. This belief
is confirmed in a report made by General
Hughes to General Chaffee in August, a
copy of which has just been received at
the war department. In this report Gen
eral Hughes says:
The progress in Samar is satisfactory in
some ways and not in others. The subduing
of the fighting propensities of the war fac
tion is reduced to almost a nullity. The
growth cf our strength in the estimation of
the people is also quite satisfactory. The
fact is, their love for the fleshpots, and inci
dentally for the Americans who represent said
pots, is growing burdensome, as the securing
of the hemp with which to pay for rice is
: becoming a heavy business. In nearly all our
posts where the commander has exercised
good judgment, colonies of natives have come
in and settled, and concluded they would set
up 'heir lares and penates under our wing, i
These colonies differ in strength, but in the
vicinity or between the Hibitan and the
Gandara rivers about 16,000 have come in. In
the interior, Blanca, Aurora, Taviran, Hato- i
guinao, Oquendo, etc., have their colonies, j
The correspondence the troops have captured i
shows that the armed forces are deserting
and breaking away from military control of
the Vicol leaders.
The unsatisfactory features are the slow
j ness of the process of conversion, the failure
to get the rifles and the slowness and the
difficulty in making roads and trails. Every
foot presents its peculiar obstacle, but the
troops are doing all that can be justly de
manded of them, and while efforts have been
made to push things faster, I am entirely
satisfied with the results thus far secured.
The commands are small, but I hope I have
not made a mistake in underestimating the
fighting ability of the forces now in the field
against us. I would feel quite easy if all offi
cers of the organization were present, but
it is fully appreciated that some of the de- j
tachments are commanded by officers who
have really never been shot over.

Bishop Edsall Intends to Reside in
Minneapolis.
OPPOSES DIVISION OF DIOCESE
Frank Expression of the Blaliop
in a San Francisco
Interview.
Bishop Edsall, seen by a Journal
representative in San Francisco this week,
talked freely regarding plans for his res
idence in Minnesota. He said:
j If the necessary conditions can be arranged
I I am inclined to think that it will be best
: for me to reside in Minneapolis. When I was
I elected coadjutor the churchmen of Minne
! apolis offered me a residence and I accepted
j the offer. Before, however, I had become
j coadjutor, and before the house had actually
been purchased or the subscriptions paid, the
lamented death of Bishop Whipple occurred.
This naturally raised the question as to
whether the former arrangement that I should
live in Minneapolis should stand or whether I
should change my mind and go to live in
Faribault. There is no official residence of
I the bishop In Faribault, the residence occu
pied by the late bishop having been his pri
vate property. While there are some con
siderations connected with the schools which
would make it desirable for the bishop to
reside iv Faribault, I am inclined to think
that the work of the diocese generally can
be better performed from the twin cities. If,
therefore, Minneapolis makes good its offer
and provides a satisfactory house to be held
in trust as diocesan property, I shall reside
in that city.
Division of the Diocese.
Another matter in which Minnesota Epis
copalians are much interested is the pro
posed division of the diocese into two,
making St. Paul and Minneapolis, each
j the Episcopal residence of the new dio
cases. Among the delegates tothe con
vention from the Minnesota, there is a
feeling in favor of this division, but the
matter will be held over until 1904, when
the convention meets in Boston. A good
many arguments have been advanced in
favor of the division and a lot of quiet
work among the clerical and lay delegates
from other dioceses has been done.
But the matter will hardly be accom
plished while Bishop Edsall is bishop of
the diocese. To-day he expressed himself
very emphatically upon the matter say
ing: "It will not be done during my life
time."

Auditor Saves the Homes of
Three Squatter*.
Special to The Journal.
Red Lake Falls, Minn., Oct. 19.—State
Auditor Dunn sold 6,000 acres of state
school land yesterday afternoon. Buyer 3
were here from points in Nebraska,
Michigan, Illinois and lowa, while farm
ers desiring to pick up adjacent lands and
local buyers by the hundreds were "on
deck." The total acreage advertised was
over 25,000, but the great demand for
lands in Clay, Marshall, Kittson, Roseau
and Polk counties where sales had been
previously held, had run to within 6,000
of the 100,000 acres named by law as the
maximum amount to be sold in one year.
The prices were much higher than ex
pected, showing Red Lake county lands to
be appreciated, and had 25,000 acres been
offered, they would have been quickly
taken.
Three squatters who settled on state
land a year ago. made ap lea for mercy
and Bob Dunn heard no competing bi*la
when $8 was offered by these men.
Troubled hearts were made happy, for
these homes are all the squatters have
of this world's goods.
"God bless Bob Dunn," said a mother,
who eagerly awaited news -from her hus
band as to the outcome of his efforts to
save their home. The tears gathered and
in her joy she huddled closer the crooning
babe at her side.
The highest price paid was for a twenty
acre tract in Rockbury, which brought
$30.25 an acre. The minimum price was
$7; average, $14.

THEY KNOW LITTLE
How the Emperor and Empress-
Dowager Live.
STORY FROM CHINESE PAPER
The Poverty of the People a Great
Surprise to the
Rulerg.
The Chinese newspaper, Sin-wen-bao,
gave recently some details concerning the
emperor and the empress dowager, and
the following verbatim translation of
them may be of equal interest:
"Since her arrival at Slngan-fu, the
widowed empress has been continually ill.
She suffers chiefly from an oppressive feel
ing on the chest; she is melancholy, and
cannot sleep at night; however, she takes
no medicine, but she summons the \
eunuchs frequently, and then they have
to 'massage' the small of her back for
hours in the Chinese method. The em
peror, on the other hand, is relatively
much better and healthier than he was
in Peking; he takes part in frequent bod
ily exercise with the keenest interest, and
Is delighted to play games with the
eunuchs, but if anything does not happen
to please him, then he scolds the eunuchs
roundly as if he really hated them. When
presents were coming in from every
province of the empire the empress
dowager ordered the chief eunuch to make
an accurate list of them, and without
showing any avarice she had them dis
tributed among the officials who had ac
companied her from Peking. When the
eunuch who drew up the list showed the
presents to the empress dowager, she
evinced the greatest joy, mingled with a
certain amount of restraint, for, although
the presents gladdened her, yet she was
saddened by the thought that she had
been obliged to demand them. The em
peror wept bitterly when he saw the pres
ents from the province of Chili. Of late
he has sought solitude in the gardens, but
so soon as he sees a eunuch he either
tries to hide himself behind a gate or runs
to his rooms. No one knows how to ex
plain this curious conduct on the em
peror's part, but it is believed that he is
suffering from the idea that he is being
followed.
"The daily expense of the imperial
kitchen amount to no more than 200 lan,
or about £28. This outlay is sanctioned
by the Governor Sen and the empress
dowager. When the question of expense
was discussed, the latter remarked:'
"When we were in Peking the cost of
our fopd was many times greater, but now
we must restrict our daily expenditure.'
Every day a eunuch lays a menu before
the empress dowager; this contains over
100 dishes, which are chiefly fl6h, ducks
and chickens, prepared in many different
ways. Since the 'presents' have come in
from the various provinces the imperial
table has been enriched by dishes made
of swallows' nests and trepang. The em
peror likes a vegetarian diet, and eats
meat very sparingly. As a rule, he orders
only two or three dishes a day. Macaroni
and vermicelli are the favorite dishes of
the empress dowager, and of late she has
ordered that the number of dishes shall
be reduced, and now only ten dishes are
prepared instead of 100. During the last
summer both the emperor and empress
dowager accustomed themselves to live
j on a milk diet, and for this purpose six
I cows were kept in the palace; however,
with the approach of sprmg and the dry
season, they ceased to dVink milk, and
the cows have been handed over to the
district authorities, who receive 200 lan
monthly for their keep.
"Both the emperor and the empres6
dowager left Peking so hurriedly that the
only wardrobe they could take with them
was the clothes which they were then
wearing. But new clothes have been re
ceived gradually from Pekin, and now
both their • majesties can appear in the
dress suitable to their rank, and such us
they wore in Peking. Since their arrival
at Singan-fu neither the emperor nor
the empress dowager nor the heir ap
parent has left the walls of the palace.
The heir apparent, a son of Prince Tuan,
had taught a little dog some tricks. When
the emperor heard of this he commanded
that the dog should appear before him;
the heir apparent sent the dog with one
of the eunuchs. For this act of disobedi
ence the emperor punished the heir ap
parent severely, and the consequence is
that they have become deeply estranged.
"During the journey to Singan-fu the
common people had an opportunity of see
ing their emperor's face. Before Singan
fu was reached the empress dowager said
to the minister, Wan-wen-shao: "I must
see the people and learn for myself how
they suffer and work.' Thus It was that
the people were allowed to see their maj
esties when the latter passed through
towns and villages, or when they spent
the night at such places. During the Jour
ney their majesties could look out from
their litters and ccc their subjects at
work in the fields; the people showed no
tear in looking at the imperial cortege,
and orders were given that they should
be neither punished nor persecuted for bo
doing. The emperor observed the life of
the people with great astonishment, for
he had nsver hitherto seen anything sim
ilar. During the Journey the empress
dowager turned herself to the emperor
and said: 'None of us could ever have
supposed that our people are bo poor.' Af
ter reaching Singan-fu, the empress
dowager ordered the governor, Sen, to
set on foot a charitable fund for assist
ing the poor and also to establish public
kitchens for supplying water and rice free
of cost: at the same time Sen was re
minded by his imperial mistress that he
nad better devote hie beat attention to
her wishes in this respect.
"The empress dowager is continually
endeavoring to return to Peking, but as
she received terrible details from the
north she cannot make up her mind to
take the step. On the tenth day of the
second month, that is, on March 29, she
ordered an imperial decree to be issued
announcing the return to Peking, but as
she heard that negotiations for signing
the Russo-Chinese treaty had come to a
standstill she postponed the return. Prep
arations were not once made for passing

THE SAND HILL RIVER DITCH.
Mr. Hoag declared in his report that the
changes are bringing purer air and a
warmer, more healthful climate Into the
valley. He found the ditches all in good
condition, some of them having increased j
their capacity by wear for carrying off j
water in flood time. The Sand Hill River i
ditch. Illustrated herewith, is twenty
miles long and cost $25,000. It exerts a
beneficial influence over 50,000 acres o/!
land at least. It is broad and big enough
for a river. The Spring Creek extension
ditch, also pictured herewith, is in Nor
man county. It has a great capacity, as
will be noted from the photograph.

Cripples, in Every Way Crippled,
Are Coming* to Him.
•'We marvel at the creations of today."—Nicola Tesla.
It Is a natural condition of the mental
organism to resent the belief of the im
possible. Yet there are many of the im
possibilities of the past that to-day are
made possible. They challenge our
disbelief. Take, for instance, the
science of Painless, Operative Surgery,
as originated, perfected to a high art and
practiced by the Bone-Setter, in his relief,
restoration and cure of cripples, all kinds
of cripples, makes the impossibilities of
the past, actual realities to-day. Hie
marvellous work and its seeming
miraculous results are certainly sufficient
to give new hope to every cripple and de
formity in the land.
CHECK ON ANARCHY
Major Sylvester of Washington
Has a Plan.
BUREAU OF IDENTIFICATION
A Center of Intelligence In Watcn
iuK and Tracing' the
Redd.
New York Tribune.
Among the many plans put forward for
combating anarchy and checking political
assassination, one Is being urged by the
heart of the Washington police depart
ment which promises to accomplish im
portant practical results with the least
possible disturbance of our legal theories
and customs. This project, fathered by
Major Sylvester, chief of police for the
District of Columbia, and president of the
Association of Chiefs of Police of the
United States and Canada, involves the
creation of a federal bureau of identifi
cation, whose function it shall be to bring
into direct and helpful touch the police
services of the various states and cities.
This bureau is to serve as a center of
intelligence through which co-operation
can be secured in breaking up the nests
of anarchist sentiment in which conspira
cies against government and heads of
government are hatched. Such an agency
could not, of course, control or direct the
work of state or municipal police, but it
would clearly facilitate the difficult task
of espionage in a country where crimes
too often find immunity through the
multiplicity of criminal jurisdictions. A
national bureau in its advisory capacity
could keep the local police of every city
on the alert against the organizers of
anarchist conspiracies, and through secret
agents it could obtain and circulate in
formation on which the local authorities
could be asked to act.
Major Sylvester's plan, it is Justly ar
gued, requires no change in our constitu
tional methods of dealing with what are
generally known as political crimes. It
involves no reclassiflcation of offenses
against the person or against the state,
and no enlargement of federal criminal
jurisdiction. Whatever the merits of
these other suggestions which look to
changing the legal character of anarchis
tic assassinations or to aggravating the
penalties to be paid by the fanatics at
tempting them. Major Sylvester's pro
posal to apply a check to anarchy through
an administrative device like this bureau
of identification seems to stand on sen
sible and solid ground of its own, and
should receive a careful consideration at
the next session of congress. If the fed
eral power is invoked to help strangle
anarchy and its hideous manifestations
in their very cradle, it is the hope of the
projectors of the new bureau to arrange
a system of exchanges with the police of
other countries, thus forming a league of
law and order to war on the international
union in which the disciples of anarchy
are bound. To this war the United States
can have no hesitation in committing it
self, after the awful example of common
peril from this common enemy which the
American people have just witnessed at
Buffalo.

CASCARINE
The Modern Cure for Constipation
and Stomach Trouble.
Don't be too skeptical. Look into things
thoroughly before passing judgment. Do
not say that one thing cannot possess cer
tain virtues because others did not—that
is foolish. Test it, and then offer an
opinion. After such test you have ac
quired knowledge; you know from experi
ence. Cascarine possesses certain vir
tues and healing properties; it absolutely
cures catarrh of the stomach, constipation,
insomnia, headache, dizziness, backache,
biliousness, indigestion and all the mani
fold ailments that have their source in
diseased or inactive kidneys and liver,
stomach and bowels. Perhaps you have
tried other remedies with no good re
i suits. The failure of other remedies
not affect the success of Csscarjue;
neither does the efficiency of Cascarine de
pend on the good qualities of other reme
dies. You will admit that the idea is
absurd, won't you? And yet, because
other remedies have not cured you, you
do not think it worth while to ascertain
if Cascarine will, it is precisely the idea
you are entertaining. Don't allow a
spirit of foolish scepticism to be the cause
of your continuing to remain a broken
down, debilitated, irritable, dull-eyed
dyspeptic being when you can be a healthy,
vigorous man. One dose of Cascarine
will remove your scepticism; one bottle
make another man of you and a few
more, according to the seriousness of your
malady, completely cure you.

FOOD CURE.
Results in Change of Diet are wopderful.
"Good food, properly selected, will, in
my opinion, cure almost any ordinary dis
ease. I want to tell you my experience
and of my recovery by the selection of
the proper diet. I am a business woman,
very closely confined indoors, with con
siderable care and anxiety. Some time
ago I tad a severe case of the grippe
and after recovering from it, had a seri
ous time following, as many people do.
I was unable to get well until I changed
my diet, leaving off Mocha, and Java cof
fee and using the Postum Food Coffee in
its place, and taking up Grape-Xuts
breakfast food. This winter 1 have given
both a fair and continued trial and the
results are superb. I am restored to
perfect health and strength, and as you
claim, I have a 'reserve force' bodily and
mentally, that carries me through many
hard places.
I cannot praise the food too much, for
it will, if used steadily, cure all disturb
ances of the system caused by the con
gestions la grippe is answerable for. A
dish that contains the most powerful re
building elements, can be made as fol
lows: hot milk brought to a boil, break in
two fresh eggs and as soon as the eggs
set, pour the boiling milk and eggs over
some Grape-Nuts In a soup dish. No
breakfast of meat can be so good.
I use Grape-Nuts In this way every
morning and have no sense of lack of food
all day. I have kept well and remark
ably free from colds all winter, which I
attribute to a fine condition of health,
brought about by the use of the famous
food and of Postum Food Coffee." (Grape-
Nuts, are perfectly cooked at factory and
are usually served cold, with a little
cream or milk.) Mrs. C. S. Woodward,
24 Grenada et, St. Augustine, Fla.
