WRECK SAFE WITH
CRACKSMEN FIRE ON POLICEMAN
Robbers Use Explosive to Blow Open
Strongbox in Grocery Store of J. J.
CramerThey Get $300 and Bun
Faster Than Patrolman Niemeyer
Many Shots Exchanged.
After blowing the safe in J. J. Cram
er's grocery store at 1337 Nicollet ave
nue early this morning and obtaining
$000, the cracksmen escaped amid a
shower- of bullets from the revolver of
Patrolman Niemeyer, who surprised
them at their work.
Entering the front door shortly be
fore 2 o'clock by means of a skeleton
key, the robbers drilled the safe and
charged it heavily with nitroglycerin.
While two of the men fixed the safe
the third stood on guard at the front
door to give warning in case officers ap
Just as some belated pedestrians
walked by on the other side of the
street, the charge was exploded with a
deafening noise. The front door of the
safe was blown out to the middle of the
store and canned goods and bottles
were nurled in all directions and
smashed against the wall.
Patrolman Niemeyer, who was walk
ing his beat a block away, hurried to
the store, but as he approached the
man on guard raised his revolver and
fired at the officer without warning.
At the 'same- time he called to his
"pals" inside, telling them to run.
Seeing the policeman approaching
rapidly in spite of the bullet sent to
intimidate him, they started on a run
out Nicollet, turning occasionally to fire
at the pursuing officer. This rapid
firing at long range was kept up until
the robbers disappeared near Nicollet
avenue and Seventeenth street.
The explosion and the revolver shots
brought several persons from their
homes and others who were passing
along the street at the time obtained
a good description of the men, who
wore no masks.
The loss was not known until this
morning when Mr. Cramer opened the
store and found that $300 he had
placed in the safe Saturday was not
to be found. The safe is a total wreck
and the damage to the store will
amount $100 or more.
Several detectives have been detailed
on the case and arrests were made to

STATES WILL CO-OPERATE
LABOR COMMISSIONER WILLIAMS
TO DICKER WITH OTHERS
ABOUT HARVEST HANDS.
Labor bureaus of seven western
states are to unite this year to see that
harvest fields this fall do not suffer
for want of harvest hands.
W. H. Williams, state labor commis
sioner for Minnesota, as head of the
new Minnesota free employment bu
reau, leaves this evening for Kansas
City, to confer with heads of similar
departments of Nebraska, Kansas, Mis
souri, Oklahoma and South Dakota, at
Kansas City. At this meeting the dif
ferent employment agencies will ar
range to co-operate. When a large
number of men are wanted in any state
or states, the head of the bureau in
the respective states will notify all the
other members of the combine, who will
at once arrange to ship all unemployed
men to the place where their services
are wanted. The respective states will
not make any charges for this service
to the men given employment, or those
hiring the labor.
Mr. Williams believes that when the
agreement is perfected, within forty
eight hours' of notice to the other bu
reaus, he can accommodate any appli
cants with one to two thousand men.
His special aim will be to see that
Minnesota harvest fields this fall have
all the hands they care to employ as
speedilv as they want them, and at a

Sellers Were Dumfounded by the
DemoralizationThe Slaughter This
Morning Starts Talk About More
Drastic Rules Relative to Squeezes.'
Confusion unparalelled and utter de
moralization were witnessed this morn
ing in the local cash wheat market.
The options declined only moderately,
but the cash article was off 10 to 12
cents a bushel in the early part of the
Five hundred and eleven cars came
in here, some of it representing wheat
taken off steamer at Chicago on Fri
day and Saturday and rushed up- here
over Sunday for delivery on May sales.
As much of it as could be switched
around and handled in time for deliv
ery before the close of the May deal
on "Wednesday was eliminated as a de
pressing force, but several hundred
cars shipped in by country mills, coun
try elevators and private holders who
waited for the last cent, still remained
and could not be sold on the May op
tion, which was the price basis on
Sellers Were Aghast.
The millers stood off and would buy
only No. 1 northern on the basis of the
July option. Two cents over July was
the best early bid, and July being then
$1.08, this meant $1.10 for'No. 1 north
ern wheat that on Saturday sold as
high, as $1.21%. Later a miller tx 4
cents over July, or $1.12, but sellers
were aghast at the slaughter of prices
and would not let go, and, with the
tables covered with samples, scarcely
any business was done to 11 o'clock.
After 11 the millers were more dis
posed to take hold and sales were re
ported at $1.15 for No. 1 northern.
The bulk of it moved off somewhere
around this figure.
Market Badly Mixed.
When the cash tables were about
cleaned up of wheat a buyer, supposed
to represent the big long interest in
May wheat, came in and openly bid
$1.19 all around the floor. This helped
the option but was of little benefit to
the early sellers of spot wheat.
It was the most mixed up cash mar
ket for years. At noon the official rec
ord showed sales of No. 1 northern at
$1.10%, $1.12 $1.13, $1.14, $1.15, $1.19
The May deal has been a grand suc
cess for the men who ran it, but the
men who suffered in the early cash
wheat slaughter of this morning are
very sore and are talking of starting an
agitation for more drastic rules rela
tive to "squeezes" and "corners."

Thursday morning the census enu
merators will start out to count the
men, women and children of Minne
apolis. Each enumerator has his own
small district to count and, with fair
weather, should be able to make the
first round in a week or ten days. It
is especially desired that the count
show a logical advance in population
or the city. Various estimates have
been made and several wagers have
been posted. Real-estate men are espe
Persons who are leaving the city,
or who expect to leave in a few day's,
should be counted. Blanks will be
mailed on application, which may be
filled out and returned to the census
headquarters in the city hall, or left

Special Enumerator Sterritt, who will
take the count in the large shops, fac

rapid progress and is receiving the
hearty co-operation of the employers.
His count will be used as a double

MAKES PEOPLE "DIG"
The'fear of Sheriff Dreger's tax vans is
still powerful. June 1 is the day bet for
the descent upon delinquent personal

of that dreaded day has resulted in a rush
of delinquents. Saturday there was $1,200

every way. Today there was a line wait

Unbiased veniremen were plentiful in
Judge D. F. Simpson's court today,
where Nichols Eckes, the Osseo saloon
keeper, charged with the murder of Fred
Boma on Oct. 3, is on trial. Men whom
the defense was willing to accept as
jurors were not so plentiful and three
peremptory challenges were used by Mr.
Hall during the morning. The state
was more easily satisfied and four .-jur-
ors were sworn before noon.
Mr. Hall/s line of questioning indi
cated that he appreciated the bias some
persons have against saloonkeepers and
was especially anxious that no temper
ance workers be on the panel that is to
determine the fate of his client. He
also inquired of each man whether he
was opposed to the defense of self-cle
fense. He stated, frankly, to one venire-'
man that his contention would be that
Eckes killed Eoma solely to protect him
self. It has been known from the be
ginning that this could be Eckes' only
defense, as the shooting is admitted.
The witnesses, a large number of
whom have been subpenaed, were not
in court and few spectators were in at
tendance. The jury will probably not
be completed before tomorrow. After
that, the Osseo contingent will be pres
ent in force and the intense interest in
the case that exists in and about that
village will be manifest.
Judge Simpson appointed as triers
Wirt Wilson, G. A. Lyons and H. F.
Johnson. The jurors were cautioned
no tto discuss the case or allow any
one else to discuss it in their presence,
and stated that if he heard of anything
of the kind the offender would be pun
ished and the jury locked up until the
case was over.

REV. G. L. MORRILL VISITS BOTH
AND GIVES OUT HIS IDEAS
ABOUT SUNDAY AMUSEMENTS.
Sunday afternoon Eev. G. L. Merrill
visited the Elim Presbyterian church,
which is located on Lake street, oppo
site Wonderland park. The Sunday
school was in session and the attendance
was large. The pastor expressed his
pleasure and announced that church
services would be held as usual. He
referred to the opening of the park on
Sunday as if it were to be regretted.
Mr. Morrill was called upon to speak,
and said: "The park won't hurt you.
If I were pastor of this church I would
pitch in all the harder and thank God
for the enlarged opportunity for doing
good. I'd run a rival show and I'd
throw it into these people across the
Mr. Morrill also spent an hour at
Wonderland looking around, and when
asked for his opinion, said: "The people
are listening to good music and indulg
ing in innocent and healthful sport.
There is nothing loud or tough here
in fact, this park is an example of good
order that other amusement resorts
should pattern after.
"As to whether the working masses
would receive more benefit if they went
to church on Sunday, as some argue,
that is a question. I should say it
would depend upon the churches and
the ministers themselves largely. But
the fact is that this element does not
and will not go to church. It works
hard six days a week and on the seventh
wants rest, recreation and a change
from routine, and is going to have it.
If such a place as Wonderland, where
everything is in the open and where evil
can be detected and dealt with, is
closed, as a result these people are sim
ply driven to other resorts where in
fluences are really harmful and ruinous
to themselves and to others. The char
acter of the men interested in Wonder
land as a permanent investment is a
guarantee to me that it will be well con
ducted, and it should be one of the
twin cities' choicest resorts."
INDIAN CHIEF HERE
Dayolheasala, of the Mohawks, Is a Well
Educated Red Man.
Dayolheasala, chief of the Mohawks and
known as "Black Eagle," is in Minneap
olis being treated for erysipelas which he
contracted some time ago at Aberdeen,
N D. The Mohawk nation now has 3.700
souls and is increasing in numbers. The
character of the braves is high spirited
and their laws permit no excesses and
alcohol is banished.
Black Eagle is an educated man and has
traveled and read extensively. He has
worked out a theory of the origin of his
tribe thru the studying of the ancient
traditions. He believes that they came
originally from Europe. As far as litera
ture goes he does rot belie\e in the real
ism of James Fenlmore Cooper but says
that Helen Hunt Jackson's "Century of
Dishonor" is a true picture of actual con
ditions. ABANDONED STOLEN AUTO
Thieves Desert W. W. Schell's Machine
After Seeing Minneapolis.
Thieves who stole the automobile be
longing to W. W. Schell of 201 Ninth
street S last night found the machine a
white elephant on their hands and after
spinning about the city for some time
they abandoned it near the west end of
the Lake street bridge.
The auto was in a barn owned by A. W.
Anderson at 115 Ninth street S. It was
quietly pushed out by two or more men.
In getting it to the street they had to
pass Mr. Anderson's bedroom, which opens
on the alley. Mr. Anderson heard nothing
in the night and is positive that had the
machine been run out with its own power
he would have heard it.
Several persons along: Lake street say
they saw .the machine when it was driven
there and they have given a good descrip
