on all the amounts to be given on

of the state fair It was decided to
appropriate $50,000 for the St. Louis
fair as provided in the original bill,
members of the committee believing
that if the state is to have an ex

one. W.N Steele of Rolla and State
Auditor Holmes were added to the
managemment of the fair from North
Dakota. It was agreed that the ap

when it is entrely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflamma

Feb, 20: I was in Victoria yesterday
and a more delightful trip could not
be imagined. We found a quaint old
town over seventy-five years old, de
cidedly English, except for the China
town end. There are many points
of interest here, including the Gov
ernment buildings, fortifications,
parks and drives. Here you find
green grass, young onions growing
out of door and occassionally a rose
bud pushing out. We secured sev
erval souvinirs, including Alaskan
and Indian baskets. I fear that there
are several species of trees and birds
that I have neglected but I have
tried to pump everyone to the bottom.
The resources of this island are
very limited. 1 asked our cab driver
what they lived on and he said:
"Each other and the tourists".
They have immense coal fields on the
island but the farming is primitive,
the land being very stony. They
have one short railroad on the island
and use Chinamen for brakemne.
Here is where they dump all the

Man Wanted at Detroit Surrender*
to Denver Police.
Denver, Feb. 24.—A young man
giving his name as Fred J. Fox
walked into the police station Just
before 1 a. m. and said he wanted to
aurrender. He told Captain Lee that
he was wanted in Detroit. Mich., for
the theft of 822,500 worth of dia
monds. Fox said he worked for
Charles Rice, wholesale and retail
Jeweler, and often made large pur
chases of goods for him.
About six weeks ago he says he
went to the firm of Horace W. Steere
and got possession of diamonds val
ued at the amount given above. Then
he left the city and went to Kansas
City, where he disposed of the dia
monds for 817,000. He came to Den
ver, he says, a month ago and had
814,500 when he reached here. He
says he still has the money and will
use it in trying to get out of the trou
ble. The police have telegraphed the
authorities in Detroit asking if Fox is
wanted there. When searched at the
Jail not a cent was found in Fox's
pockets. He smiled at the captain
who conducted the search and re
marked that a day sooner would have
netted a different result.
