Brown, the young he
wrongedV unless his counsel succeed in
setting aside the sentence of the court
passed this morning.
Gillette's mother, who reached this
city last night, was overcome and
hysterical over the sentence, but Gil

over the words that mean death.
Every effort will be made by his

able that the law will furnish a chance

HUDSON TO SEE OIL KING
Goes East Seeking Gift for Chicago
"TJ"May Get Presidency, Too.
Bpeoial to The Journal.
Chicago, Dec. 10.Dr. Harry Pratt
Judson, prospective president of theto
University of Chicago, left for New
lYork Sunday night to consult with
5 John D. Bockefeller regarding the uni
versity budget for the coming year and
I the prosidoncy of the university. I
I is estimated that the size of Rocke
4 feller's gift will be largely dependent
upon the force of Dr. Judson's argu
ment. The shortago this year in the
university finances may have some
weight with the oil magnate when the
facts are laid before him.
Dr. Judson returned from New York
ten days ago, whither he went on a
secret mission, which, it is believed,
had much to do with his candidacy for
the presidency. In view of Dr. Jud
son's second trip, the belief prevails
that he will not only secure a hand
some financial donation from Rocke
feller, but win the presidency as well.

Asks A Deputy.
The creation of the office of deputy
postmaster general, to be the ranking
officer of the assistants of the post
master general, is recommended.
Need of agents to study the postal
systems of other nations is emphasized.
Mr. Corteiyou reports that 27,794
women are employed in the postal ser
vice. He says nothing of their value.
Of this number, 253 are employed as

Attempts to use the mails to defraud
were severely dealt with during the
year just closed. Fraud orders num
bering 630 were issued, which eclipses
the figure of the previous year by sev
enty-one. Schemes of almost every
conceivable variety were nipped.
Burglaries on Increase.
The number of burglaries of post
offices during the year was 1,802a
notable increase over the previous year,
when the figure was 1,581. In this mat
ter the postmaster general deplores the
weak federal laws, saving that ofttimes
the robbers arrested are turned over to
the state courts, as the sentences usu
ally are more severe.
eDclaring that the commission ap
pointed bv congress to investigate the
pharges of the lailroads for carrying
mail did not delve deep enough into
the matter, Mr. Corteiyou ventures the
statement that "while my impression
is very strong that we-pay a great
deal too much for transportation, I
should not be warranted in making a
recommendation based merely on such
an impression. I the government is
payuig too much for the carriage of the
mails, that fact should be determined."
The government's ownership of the
pneumatic tube systems used in thesort,
mail service is recommended.

tfrgent need of the improvement of
the foreign mail service is emphasized.

No Cars at Berlin, N. D.
Southall Brothers, grain dealers at
Berlin N D., write The Journal
that they have not had an empty car
in which to load wheat since Nov. 14.
"We had ten cars in September, ten
in October and five the first half of
November. Only twenty-five cars on
this crop. We had sixty-five cars in
the same time last falL We loaded our
first car of new grain on Sept. 1, but
we couldn't get it taken out or pushed
away from the elevator. Then we gave
a brakeman 50 cents to push it out so
that we could load the next car. We
