TO FCfejT A XE W STATE
SERIOUS PROPOSAL TO CREATE THE
COMMONWEALTH OF "SUPERIOR."
Mlrhlfimn, anil Wisconsin to
Contribute to U Territory Would lie
One of the niclirt In the Union, Kcfw
cially In Sllnrmln.
It is reriously proposed to crcato n
new stato by taking a part of tho thrco
states of Minnesota, Wisconsin and
Michigan, which will bo known as tho
state, of "Superior," or "tho Mineral
State. " Thisidea is a modification of
tho now state plan so often repeated,
and its creator is Captain Alox
tho inventor of tho whaleback.
Captain MeDougall would cut out u
territory bounded on tho north by Canada,
on tho west by tho Mississippi river,
on tho south by a lino drawn from
tho Mississippi river along tho southern
boundary of tho northern tier of Wisconsin
comities and terminating at tho
tip of tho upper peninsula. Of
course tho eastern boundary lino would
lio in tho lakes, but that is immaterial
to tho plan.
What is aimed at particularly is to
place tho tliroo great iron ranges tho

bio in ouo state, so that tho interests
of nono of them could bo injured by
conflicting legislation and all might be
treated from tho samo basis.
Should tho new stnto, which would
bo tho forty-fifth of tho Union, bo considered
at all it would havo tho additional
advantage tho captain thinks, of
solving tho difficulties of long standing
between Duluth and Superior, for, both
cities being in tho samo stato, their interests
wonld bo in tho main almost
identical. At least thero would bo no
stato lino to vex and complicate their
Duluth and tho northern part of
havo no interests in common with
tho rest of tho state. Wisconsin, it can
truthfully bo said, bears tho samo relation
toward Superior and tho northern
portion of tho stato, and as for tho upper
peninsula it is not, cither from a
commercial or geographical point of
view, a part of tho suite of Michigan.
Tho new stato would bo ono of tho
richest in wealth in tho Unions It
would havo more than 500 miles of
water front and contain "tho head of
, tho lakes" harbor, which is tho gateway
for tho trudo and commerce of tho
entire northwestern country. "Superior,"
or "tho Mineral Stato, "would at
once becomo ouo of tho greatest states of
tho Union, it is firmly believed by its
Agitation of tho subject will begin
immediately tliroughout tho tlireo commonwealths
involved, and tho representatives
in tho several legislatures who
como from tho territory immediately
involved will after their adhesion is so-cured
begin making political combinations
in order to effect their purpose.
The new stato would bo strongly
a qualification which would
soenro it a resiectful hearing from tho
present congress. Chicago Times-Herald.

To Prevent Train llobuory.
The Southern Pacific is considering
methods fpr pi eventing train robbery,
but thus far no feasible plan has been

to placo tho express car in the middle of
tho train, thus making it difficult to do-
tach it from tho remainder of tho train.

Woman being a croatnro of
mind, it keens tho artists and do-
signers ill a continual statu of mental
activity to ovolvosomothing having now
features, at loast for ovcry day in tho
year. It was not enough for thoin to
bring out tho Russian blouse nud then
rest upon their laurels. Thero must bo
something a littlo different, and so tho
queer "nor fish nor flesh" waists now
offered as novelties. Thoro is ono which
embodies tho pointod waist, the heavily
embroidered Spanish jacket nud tho
Russian blouso offect all together. The
waist has a pointod volvot bolt of a rich
dark blue, a velvot jackot almost covered
with gold embroidery and a doublo
plait hanging over in the approved
fashion, with four dull gold buttons.
Tho plait itsolf is of old gold nrninro.
Thero nro bluo velvet ribbons carried
around tho arm sizes and tied in littlo
bows upon tho shoulders. Tho collar is

skirt is liko tho sleeves and is cut
wido. Tho front seams nro loft
open over n dark blue velvet inset, nud
this is heavily wrought with gold.
Thero nro HO dull gold buttons on tho
skirt and buttonholes simulated with
dark bluo twist. Bat wing bows nro'ect
at tho top. Theso insets aro very protty
and afford a moans of widening auy
skirt that is scarco'y as largo around
tho bottom as might bo desired.
Another novelty in tho blouso effect
has a snug lining, over which is laid n
waist of chenoy silk, with a slight droop
exactly in front, ovor tho round belt.
Thero aro two straps laid liko brotolles
from tiio front to tho back ovor tho
shouldors. Thoso aro piped with emerald
greon silk. Tho general tono of tho
silk is pale pinks and greons. Thero is
a stock of dark groon volvot and a small
doublo rosctto at tho bolt on tho left
6ido. Tho skirt worn with this was of I
fancy striped taffota in greens and
reds over smokogray. Tho skirt was
plain, but oxquisitoly finishod and
Tho stylish young possessor of this
pretty spring suit had a hat of dark
green French chip, with half a dozen
ostrich tips and an nigrct showing
nbovo its enormous brim. On tho left
sido thero were threo tiny bows, ono of
rose loaf pink nnd two of greon. Thero
was something dolicionsly springliko
about this wholo costume.
It is qui to poesiblowith tho now fashion

of all tho excitement. It reminds
ouo of tho days "In-fore tho war, "when
oil was first struck, and it almost equals
the excitement in California over the
discovery of gold.
Oil was first discovered in West Virginia
and not in Pennsylvania. Tho
Pennsylvania fields were tho first to Ihj
dovclojed, bnt tho discovery belongs to
West Virginia, and tho largest oilfield
now in tho world is at Sisterville,
alwnt oO miles nlwvo Pnrkerslmrg. In

Tho coal oil fever broko forth in all
its fury early in 1801, when oil was

Parkersbnrg. It, was then that fortunes
wero mado nnd lost in a singlo day.
hi that field oil was found nt n doptli
of from 00 to 300 feet, and in a few
weeks tho wholo Hold was punctured
liko a pcpier box.
It was in tho oil excitement of 1801
that Senntor Camden, who is now classed
among tho wealthiest of America's
millionaires, got his start. At that timo
ho was n comparatively young uian,
with n small law practice in a country
town up in tho interior of tho stato.
Sitting in his room ouo evening looking
over tho daily papers, ho suddenly
to his wife with tho remark, "Ann,
my fortnno is made."
When sho looked for an explanation,
ho said: "I seo hero in tho paper thnt
oil has been discovered on tho Littlo
Kanawha. I am going up thero to try
mX linud at developing ho fiold. " Tho
next morning ho borrowed nil tho mon
ey that his collaterals and fho infinenco
of friends could scrapo together for him
and then struck out for tho Burning
spring. In two week ho had mado
enough to pay back his borrowed capital,
and from tliat day to this thero has
not licen a check in tho progress of his
marvelous business career.
Tho improvement in tho method of
refining has advanced with tho progress
of tho industry, and discoveries huvo

that was formerly thrown nwny is
now converted into useful nrticlcs of
commerce. It is in this way that
oil has been reduced in prico from
40 cents a gallon to 10 cents nnd still
leaves a good profit to tho refiners.
Most of tho wells that have been
shot in tho area of tho oil basin havo
been good producers, mid thero is now
a daily output of from 12,000 to Ifi.OOO
Yet experienced oil speculators say
that tho present riso in oil is not alto

Tho Russian oilfiold is diminishing
