Russian Influence to Be Less
ened by a New Rail
Constantinople, Jan. 17.An irade has
been promulgated approving of the final
convention for the construction of the
Bagdad railroad by a German company.
A guarantee of 17,000 francs per kilo
meter is promised. The line will be car
ried to the Persian Gulf, but the proposal
to fix the terminus at Koweit is aban
doned, owing to political considerations.
The concession for a line of railroad
connecting the Bosporus with the Per
sian Gulf is regarded as extremely im
portant politically and commercially.
When completed it will bring India with
in approximately eight days of London
and it will open a new international
granary and bring a considerable part of
Asia Minor under German influence. The
German concession conflicts seriously with
the Russian plans for the extension of the
Siberian railroad towards India.

WINS A GAME
Results In the Northwestern Bons

Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., Jan. 17.In the North

Stout of St. Paul defeated D. W. Stocking
of Duluth, 16 to 4, in the Duluth jobbers'
Reports that the Milwaukee and the Soo
railroads are to make several important
extensions in the. northwest this year
are being discussed with interest. The
impression prevails among railroad men
that whatever understandings may have
existed between certain roads and the
Northern Pacific are at an end since the
Northern Pacific settlement in New York
resulted In Hill domination of that road.
The Milwaukee is pushing its line from
Eureka, S. D., into southwestern North
Dakota and will probably use that exten
sion as a base for tapping the Missouri
slope country- It is understood that the
Soo for years has been kept out of the
Bismarck country owing to an understand
ing between the Canadian Pacific and the
Northern Pacific in which the Northern
Pacific extensions in Manitoba were not
made as a result of no further encroach
ments upon Northern Pacific territory in
North Dakota by the Soo. With the
practical -retirement of the Northern Pa
cific from Manitoba by the leasing of its
lines to the Manitoba government the
Northern Pacific lost the club it had
wielded in Canadian Pacific territory. The
Soo began its campaign of Northern Pa
cific terirtory last year by the Missouri
river extension, forcing the Northern Pa
cific to make preparations to build south
from Its main line. There appears to be
no doubt in the minds of railway men that
the Soo's policy of paralleling its ownthat
lines at a distance of from fifty to one
hundred miles is to be carried out to some
extent this year by the extension of the
road into Bismarck.
There is also a firm belief that the Soo
will begin another parallel within a short
time by building from Elbow Lake, Minn.,
into Fargo and from that city northwest
to a point on its main line near the Ca
nadian boundary. This will give the Sooknown.
a line through a good portion of the Red
River valley and the productive and prom
ising territory to the west. It will also
make Fargo a railway center of consid
erable importance, giving it four good
roads, and will double its business as a
distributing center. It will also open up
a vast amount of new rich territory for
Minneapolis. This would practically give
the Soo a double track the entire length
of its line in North Dakota and add im
mensely to the road's revenue..
Twin City Dividends Are to
Be Declared Quar-
Washington, Jan. 17.The Louisiana
Purchase Exposition, which was to have
been held at St. Louis in 1903, will not
take place until W04.
That tact was practically conceded by
ex-Governor Francis, president of the ex
position company, and Adolph Busche,.
financial agent of the company, at the
White House to-day. Since arriving here
and conferring -with the foreign represen
tatives. Governor Francis and Mr. Busche
have come to the conclusion that unless
the exposition is postponed a year the
exposition will not be able to secure the
elaborate foreign exhibits- which are dedentas
sired. They find, for instance, that a
great Japanese fair is to be given under
government auspices in 1903-, and If the
exposition is postponed until 1904 every
thing of interest exhibited there can besioner
brought to St. Louis the fololwing year. It
is the desire of the exposition manage
ment that tEe foreign exhibits especially
shall be very complete. "In 1903 we can
make the exposition as great as any ever
given," said Governor Francis "but ifspecial
we postpone a year it will''surpass any
thing in the exposition line ever attempt
ed. We can be ready in 1903, but it is
questionable whether we can secure what
we want from abroad by that time."
In order to interest foreign govern
ments it is tne desire of the exposition
management that.: foreign agents of the
exposition be appointed and accredited
by the state department, -and steps are
being taken to that end. Yesterday Gov
ernor Francis and Mr. Busche extended
an invitation through the German .am-
bassy to Prince Henry to visit St. Louis
during his stay in this country, but noing
reply has been received.

This was turned over to the secret
service, which, in co-operation with the
agents of the pension office, made
an investigation and soon traced the mis
sive to one William Barton, a disbarred
pension attorney and claim agent, living
at Peekskill, N. Y.
It appears that Barton was arrested in
December, 1898, on the charge of receiv
ng an illegal fee and forging the name of
one Denis Cleary, a pensioner, on the back
of the check sent for his first payment,
$li7.07. He was taken before a United
States commissioner and held in $2,000
bail id await the action of the grand jury,
but saved the government further trouble
by confession. As his counsel and an
outside medical expert satisfied the prose
cuting attorney that Barton was suffer
from paresis due to chronic alcohol
ism, and irresponsible, the case was
dropped, but of course he was disbarred
fom pension practice by the secretary of
the interior. Since then he has been dis
owned by his family, lost whatever busi
ness he had, and been an inmate of a
poorhouse in Westchester county. His
lesson at the hands of the law has
however, prevented him from continuing
to be grossly abusive of the present ad
ministration of the pension office.
When apprehended for his latest offense,
he was found in a saloon in Yonkers. He
was charged with writing and mailing the
letter to the president, and admitted it

Local attorneys who are interested in
the fight which Peter Power is making

matter, and rather inclined to doubt
the accuracy of the statement.
However, in the argument made before
Judge Lochren of the United States court,
George A. Lamb, a New York attorney
representing the Power interests, made
the statement that any action taken by
the company to retire its preferred stock
on Jan. 1 would be illegal in New York as
the day was a legal holiday. He said
that state laws made it impossible for
the company to effect such a step on a
holiday and, although his contention was
ridiculed by the attorneys representing
Northern Pacific-Great Northern in
terests, he maintained his position stout
If Mr. Lamb^was correct in his stand,
if New York laws forbid the transaction
of such business on a holiday, then the
importance of the proof which It is said
Mr. Morgan will be called upon to give
becomes readily apparent.
The major portion of the 75,000,000 pre
ferred stock was unquestionably retired
Jan. 1. If that retirement was illegal
those who are engineering the merger
are confronted by a serious proposition.
PAY FOR WEDDING
Washington, Jan. 17.The senate com
mittee to-day authorized Senator Frye,
its chairman, to make a favorable report
on his ship subsidy bill. Senator Frye's
report accompanying the bill places the
cost of the subsidy at $4,700,000. Based
on actual navigation of American vessels
in foreign trade in 1900, the subsidies
proposed would amount to $1,072,000- The
bounties on deep sea fisheries is estimated
at $175,000. He says the receipts from
ocean mail postage will provide $3,000,000
of thisi amount, leaving a deficit under
the system proposed of nearly'$2,000,000.
The democratic members voted against
reporting the bill. They also voted solid
ly for a motion offered by Senator Mallory
to strike out the general subsidy provision
of the bill. The committee made several
amendments to the bill. The most im
portant, allowing mail-carrying vessels to
be either iron or steel instead of steel
only, as originally provided, and reduce
to 1,000 gross registered tons, the vessels
recieving a bounty. .....

ference with Commission
er Jones about the Morris bill for the
amendment of the Nelson timber act. Be
fore the bill was presented in the house
it was submitted to the Indian office and
indorsed, with the exception of some
minor features. It is, therefore, expected
that the commissioner and Secretary
Hitchcock will make favorable report on
it. Both Morris and the Cass Lakers
are anxious to have some of the timber
lands sold and opened to settlement and
urged Commissioner Jones to do all he
could to that end.
These gentlemen also called on Gifford
Pinchot, chief of the forestry division of
the department of agriculture, and talked
over his plan for the preservation of pine
forests in Minnesota. It provides for the
sale of ripe timber each year and theline
planting of young trees to take the, place
of those removed, thus perpetuating the
forest. Morris has been credited with
being in favor of this plan of forest
preservation, but up to date has made, no
definite anouncement of his intention to
favor the oreation of a park in Minne

Ludington, Mich., Jan. 17.The Pere
Marquette railroad company's steamer,
No. 3, struck the bar at the mouth, of the
harbor early to-dayjwhile attempting to
enter in a high southwest gale and waa
scuttled in nine feet of water.
The nine passengers and the crew of
thirty were taken off by the life-saving
crew with their breeches buoy apparatus.
The No. 3 lies 150 feet from the end of the
north pier and 200 feet from the shore,
withjjreat waves dashing over her decks.
She is already a mass of ice.
'Twas Before Daylight.
The accident occurred before daylight.
Passengers and crew were rudely awak
ened by the succession of shocks as the
steamer pounded on the bar. Signals of
distress were immediately blown and the
life-saving crew quickly responded.
"Running their mortar out on the pier,
the life savers sent a line to the wreck.
A heavier rope*was then hauled aboard
and when day broke there was. a line 200
feet long stretched from the pier to the
No. 3, and the breeches buoy apparatus
was ready for use. Over this line the
passengers, four of whom were women,
and the crew of thirty were safely taken,,
in within two hours.
Buoy and Passengers Drenched.
It was a thrilling rescue. As the people
were drawn along the rope the great
waves broke over them and all were
drenched by the icy water when they ar
rived on the pier.
The boat was loaded with 25,000 bushel*
of barley and 200 tons of merchandise.
The stranding occurred at almost exactly
the same spot where the car ferry Mus
kegon struck and waB wrecked three
weeks ago. The Pere Marquette officials
hope to save No. 3 and her cargo but
there is great danger that the boat will
go to pieces if the high sea continues.

man to leave the vessel in the buoy, aaya
