The turnstile record at noon today
showed that 13.164 persons had passed
into the state fair grounds this morn

more who we nt thru the team gates,
making the morning attendance about

From a financial standpoint the day
is a moneymaker.
Cold, dispiriting rain, blown across
the grounds by a steady southeast
wind, began to soak the state fair
grounds at 9 o'clock this morning and
continued its uncomfortable work dur
ing the morning and eprly afternoon.
For hours the crowded cars con
tinued to unload their dripping freight
at the terminal and to go back to the
cities after more of the thousaadB -who
were determined to view the fair at
any cost. Those thousands who first
arrived put on a bold front and kept
to the buildings as much as possible.
For the first few minutes following
their arrival the visitors clung to the
ample carsh'ed, which is a valuable fea

idly biting their nails or gazing wistful

front of them. Then, in squads of fifty
or more, they would make a break for
other shelter, and would presently be
swallowed up in the maze of structures
on the grounds.
Shelter being at a premium the build
ings were crowded to an unusual ex
tent, and the exhibits were inspected
as they would not have been on a
brighter day. The dairy and fish^build

sheds and the various private exhibits

enliven an otherwise rather doubtful
occasion and the exhibitors took ad
vantage of the time and opportunity
to explain to spectators the virtues and
value of the things offered.
President Oosgrove Optimistic.
The silver lining to the great gray
cloud which hung over the fair grounds
and wept continually, was first seen
by President C. N Cosgrove, ho with
truo optimism said:
I one way this rain is a blessing in

HILL'S FRAUD CRY
^ROUSES HIS FOES
Alleged Retirement from Politics
Forced After Speech Against
Former Senator Defers Retirement
Till After Election to Aid
By W. W. Jermane.
Now York, Aug. 31.David B. Hill's
speech at the Binghampton fair, in
which he denounced the president as a
"fraud,'' has furnished an opening for
a renewed attack on him by those ele
ments with in the democratic party
which have never been satisfied with
his leadership. I is significant that
right on the heels of the opening of
that attack, which promises to be bitter
and far reaching, Hill announces that
he will retire from public life after the
first of the year.
That announcement is not convinc
ing. It is probably made with a view
to saving Judge Parker from harm, for
Hill really is fond of Parker, and wants
to see him carry New York and be
elected president. The only method of
removal of the Hill handicap that
would not humiliate Hill is that which
Hill has adopted.
I it were not for Hill's indorsement,
it is likely that Stanchfield would be
the leading candidate for the guberna
torial nomination, after Lamont. A it
is, leading democrats all over the state,
personally friendly to Stanchfield, are
coming out against him because
Hill is for him. The New York "World
says editorially that if Stanchfield is
nominated, it will not hesitate to do its
duty, meaning that it will oppose him.
Obviously, such a state of affairs
would militate against Judge Parker,
who could not carry the state under the
conditions which would develop under
Hill's leadership. So the only thing
Hill can do is to say that he will retire.
The date is set beyond election day. I
Parker should be elected president
there would be many ways of convinc
ing Hill that his withdrawal had been.
made prematurely, and that the best in
terests of the party demanded that he
continue at his post.

JOHN LIND SAYS
HE ion ACCEPT
Declares That He Must Decline to
Bun for the Supreme
"When John Xiind said th at ho would
not accept a nomination to the supreme
bench at the hands of the democratic
state convention, he meant it.
Witness the following special dis
patch to The Journal from its cor
respondent at Everett, Wash., where
Mr. Lind now is:
When asked this morning whether he
would accept the nomination to the su
preme court of Minnesota, made by the
democratic convention at Minneapolis yes
terday, John Lind said:
"If the report of my nomination to the
supreme court be true, I cannot accept."
Mr. Lind has all along declared that
he could not go on the ticket in any
capacity. The position of supreme
.judge is not one that appeals to his
tastes and he feared that if he were
nominated for the place on a strong
ticket headed by John A Johnson, he
would be elected.
I he adheres to the determination
expressed to the Journal corres
pondent, it will be necessary for the
Btate democratic committee to act on his
declination and fill his place on the
Hopi ng for the Best.
Local democrats are not inclined to
accept Mr. Lind's refusal as final.
will return in a week or ten days, and
the disposition is to let the matter rest
until that time. I he still refuses, the
state central committee will have to
fill the vacancy.'
I think Mr. Lind may be brought
to see the matter in a different light,"
said J. E. Corrigan. A least, I should
foe in favor of taking no action till lie
returns and sees the situation. When
he understands it, I think he may cont
sent to make the sacrifice for the good
of the party. Conditions that existed
last Saturday are not the conditions
that existed Monday or today. There
is the utmost harmony for the ticket,
and Mr. Lind has always been disposed
to self-sacrifice where it was demanded
by a united party."
'W. H. Williams, a member of the
state committee, said: "Why did
those fellows say Lind would accept?
It doesn't look as tho they knew what
they were talking about."
LOVELY WILL ACCEPT
The Albert Lea Judge Admits That
Judge John A Lovely will accept
the democratic nomination for judge
of the supreme court. has not
done so and is careful about expressing
himself because he has not been noti
fied of his nomination, but the tone of
his talk today showed his intention.
Several of his friends called today to
tender their congratulations. said
"It is very gratifying to me, cer
tainly, to be the nominee of two con
ventions. I was nominated at the re
publican convention, but for some rea
son or other the certificate never
reached me. Now I have been nomin
ated by the democrats. A good many
of my friends say they would like to
-vote for me, font of course it would
be improper for me to say what I will
do until I am notified. Naturally,
when a man has been kicked over
board, he is apt to grasp a rope thrown
from a friendly ship. Yes, I am aware
I would have to bear the name of
'democrat,' ut I remember when I

Famine in Meat.
Famine in meat is declared by the
strikers to be the probable result of

for a general strike of all butcher

Stock Handlers Quit.

in the stockyards unsaddled their cow
ponies and, putting them into the
barns, quit work. The men marched
out of the yards and were greeted
wi th cheers by the union pickets.
The packers say it is Donnelly's aim
to create a meat famine, which he
thinks would arouse the public to such
a pitch of indignation that a settlement
would be forced.
"Donnelly is undertaking the impos
sible," said a representative of one of
the packers. There is little chance of
a meat famine. The independent pack

have profited much during the strike,
