ADDITIONAL LOCAL MATTER

O. E. Dickinson, a prominent
business man of Verndale, Minn.,
has been in the city during the
past two days looking over the
business situation here, with
reference to securing a location
for establishing a mercantile es
tablishment. He is well pleased
with Bemidji and may decide to
locate here.

His taste for snubbing amounted to a
craze. His tendency to contradiction
on every possible opportunity altogeth

Lord Sherbrooke, himself. Freeman
was more agreeable to encounter In the
open air than at a dinner table. In
the Mendlp district whenever I heard
a horse's hoofs pelting along some
piece of turf by the roadside and a
voice singing the refrain of some old
cavalier song I knew that if I looked
round I should see the historian pound
ing along on a sturdy nag which, ac
cording to tradition, in a burst of gen

Cut Out by Water.
"The popular idea that earthquakes
and volcanic explosions played a part
In forming the Grand Canyon of the
Colorado river," says Professor A. R.
Crook, "is without foundation. It
was cut out entirely by the water of
the river, and the most effective tool
employed was the quartz sand brought
down from the sources of the river in
the mountains. This sand is harder
than any of the constituents of the
rock strata in which the canyon has
been carved. Hurled by the swift wa
ter against the sides and the bed of
the stream, it cuts the rock as easily
as a file cuts soft iron."

The Modesty of Women
Naturally makes them shrink from the
Indelicate questions, the obnoxious ex
aminations, and unpleasant local treat
ments, which some physicians consider
essential in the treatment of diseases of
women. Yet, if help can be had, it is
better to submit to this ordeal than let
the disease grow and spread. The trouble
Is that so often the woman undergoes all
the annoyance and shame for nothing.

FA3T LINERS TO CUBA.
New Boats Will Make Trip Pram New
York In Two Days.
New York, March 2.The Tribune
Bays that according to private cable
advices received here from Havana
Charles W. Morse, who is now in
Cuba, has become enthusiastic over
the development of the island and
promises to build up a great passen
ger and freight service between New
York, Havana and other Cuban ports
He hopes to put into service within a
year two fast turbine steamers, which
will make the trip between New York
and Havana in two days, which is
one-half the time now consumed.
Aside from the traffic improvements
Mr. Morse will take up building In
Havana a hotel which he says will
equal any resort In the world.
"I am confident after my brief visit
here," Mr Morse said in Havana,
"that better facilities for docking
must be made. The inconvenience
and expense necessitated by the light
erage of freight might be endured by
the company, but passengers will not*
submit to things where they are per
sonally inconvenienced. I Intend to
construct wharves where steamers
can land their passengers, and in time
I promise that Cuba will be the real
Mecca for tourists."
Before returning to New York Mr.
Morse and his party will go to Mexico
and visit several of the ports where
his steamers touch.
Rock Island Train Derailed.
Enid, Okla., March 2Northbound
Rock Island passenger train No. 12

fatally.
HUNT FOR THIEF CONTINUES
CHIEF OF SECRET SERVICE NOW
IN CHARGE OF CHICAGO
SUB-TREASURY CASE.
Chicago, March 2The hunt for
the man who stole $173,000 from the
Chicago sub-treasury continues.
John E. Wilkle, chief of the United
States secret service, who arrived
here Thursday and took personal
charge of the case, strongly Intimates
that suspicions have concentrated on
one man, whose name has already
been mentioned in connection with the
gigantic theft, but the officials were
not yet ready for an arrest.
Chief Wilkie said this suspected
man might have had one or several
accomplices, who expected to profit by
the theft, but his theory was that one
man had taken the money.
Four men were put through a
searching examination by Chief Wil
kie in the office of Captain Thomas I.
Porter, chief of the local secret serv
ice bureau. The men questioned were
Arthur R. Boal, currency clerk and a
nephew of Cashier Frank C. Russell
Henry S. Lock, assistant assorting
teller, who has succeeded George W.
Fitzgerald as assorting teller John
M. Rogers, paying teller, and Frank
J. Walsh, currency clerk.
With the exception of George W.
Fitzgerald, the assorting teller from
whose cage the money disappeared,
these four men are believed to be in a
better position than any other em
ployes or officials of the sub-treasury
to throw light on the manner In which
the thief could have secured the
money. They were nearest the Fitz
gerald cage. Fitzgerald, who is being
kept under surveillance, will be ex
amined later.
BLOW AT ORIENTALS.
California Legislature Curtails Prop
erty Rights of Aliens.
Sacramento, Cal., March 2.The
lower house in California has taken
action on the Oriental question. It
has passed a bill introduced by As
semblyman Drew of Fresno.
The bill is known as the "anti-alien
property holding bill. It is aimed at
the Japanese and Chinese property
owners in this state and is intended
to prevent them from acquiring and
owning property for a longer period
than five years.
The bill provides that any alien who
does not become a citizen of the Unit
ed States shall not acquire and hold
title to lands in this state for more
than five years. If within that time
the alien does not become a citizen
the district attorney shall compel the
sale of his lands or houses.
Japanese and Chinese are not spe
cifically named, but as they cannot
become citizens the bill is aimed di
rectly at them.
The measure also provides that no
contract, agreement or lease of real
estate for a longer period than one
year shall be made by any alien.
Storm Levels Telegraph Wires.
La Crosse, Wis., March 2.A heavy
storm of sleet, raging for twelve hours,
ha* broken down the telegraph wires
of the railways centering here. East
and north of La Crosse freight traffic
has been suspended, while passenger
trains are being operated slowly and
with difficulty In the yards the tracks
are under water, adding a further ele
ment of danger to the fast trains.
Steamer Corona Ashore.
San Francisco, March 2.The Mer
chants' Exchange has received a mes
sage from Eureka to the effect that
the steamer Corona, which left here
Thursday, is ashore at the entrance
of Humboldt bay. The Corona was
commanded by Captain Boyd and took
ninety-five passengers from here.

INTENTION OF JEROME
FURTHER INDICATIONS THAT HE
WILL ASK FOR LUNACY COM-
MISSION IN THAW CASE.
STATEMENT TO NEWSPAPER MEN
PROSECUTION MAY ATTEMPT TO
INTRODUCE DEFENDANT'S
NOTE IN EVIDENCE.
New York, March 2.District At
torney Jeiome's intention of applying
for a commission in lunacy to exam
ine Harry K. Thaw seemed to be defi
nitely established during the continu
ance of his cross-examination of Dr.
B. D. Evans, the principal medical ex
pert for the defense.
Mr. Jerome during his examination
constantly referred to the subject of
paranoia, but was unable to secure
from the witness any admission that
would tend to show Thaw a paranoic.
By this line of questioning it seems
probable that the prosecution will at
tempt to show that instead of being
afflicted with the insanity of adoles
oence Thaw is actually a paranoic.
During the course of his cross-ex
amination by Mr. Jerome Dr. Evans
definitely stated that at the time
Thaw shot and killed Stanford White
he was insane, suffering an explosive
outbreak of adolescent insanity. Dr.
Evans said cases of adolescent insan
ity had been known to clear up over
night.
Dr. Evans declared various out
breaks did not suggest paranoia in
that they all differ. In writing the
will Thaw seemed to fear for his life
at other times he indicated simple
melancholia and at last there was the
explosive outbreak on the Madison
Square Roof Garden. These vari
ances, the expert asserted, were in
dicative of insanity of the adolescent
period, but there was no fixed form as
in paranoia.
During the morning session Thaw
asked and received permission to
leave the courtroom. When he got
into the prisoner's pen it is said he
told his guard that he merely wanted
to stretch himself and get some exer
cise. He waved his arms somewhat
violently and walked rapidly up and
down. District Attorney Jerome was
informed of what had occurred.
JEROME MAY USE STATEMENT.
Thaw's Latest Act of Value to the
Prosecutor.
New York, March 2.What effect
will the statement JuBt issued by
Harry K. Thaw have on his trial?
This is the question which is calling
forth much speculation on the part of
followers of the case. It is said that
Thaw's lawyers did their best to con
vince him that it was bad policy to
issue the statement and only consent
ed when he insisted that he be al
lowed to do so.
Now the question is, what will the
district attorney do about it? There
are many who believe that Mr. Je
rome will seek to put this statement
la evidence and use it to show that
Thaw is still insane. Whether he will
attempt to put it before the jury and.
If he does, whether he will be able to
get it in, are questions which can only
be answered in the future. The indi
cations, however, are that Mr. Jerome
will overlook no chanoe to show that
Thaw is now insane so as to take the
ease from the jury and send Thaw to
the asylum for the criminally insane
at Matteawan.
In the statement, which he gave to
the newspaper men in court, Thaw
accused District Attorney Jerome of
having made unprofessional remarks
in court, asserted that his wife's testi
mony was absolutely true and in con
clusion declared that Mrs. Thaw's
"natural and real goodness" was above
the comprehension of the prosecuting
officer.
MINNEAPOLIS BANK OUT $2,500.
Swindlers Secure Nioe Sum by 8imple
Scheme.
Minneapolis, March 2.Swindlers
mulcted the Hennepin County Savings
bank of $2,500 by a clever, yet simple
ruse.
Michael J. Shelley, vice president of
the Crystal Lake Ice company, had a
deposit of several thousands of dol
lars in the bank. Some one tele
phoned the bank, representing that he
was Mr. Shelley, saying he would send
a boy with a check for $2,500 and ask
ing that the check be cashed in bills
of large denomination. Shortly after
ward a boy appeared with the check
and was handed $2,500.
Mr. Shelley says the check is a
forgery and that he never telephoned
any message about it to the bank.
ATTORNEY GOES TO PRISON.
Cenvleted of Distributing Immoral
Literature.
Chicago, March 2.Attorney Will
lam J. Oby of Cleveland has been sen
tenced by Judge Landis in the United
States district court to one year in
the house of correction.
Oby was formerly connected with
the Canton Rubber company of Can

dicted on a charge of distributing im
moral literature through the mails.
Edwin Davis and Robert O. Bradley,
officers of the rubber company, were
last December given the same sen

Shaw and Hitchcock Say Farewell to
Cabinet Associates.
Washington, March 2.The day's
cabinet meeting was in the nature of
a farewell to two of its members,
who, on next Monday, retire to private
life, they being Secretary of the Treas
ury Shaw and Secretary of the In
terior Hitchcock. The former will be
succeeded by Postmaster General
Cortelyou and the latter by Commis
sioner of Corporations Garfield. This
was the last meeting of the cabinet
as at present constituted. Another
addition: to the cabinet will be former
Ambassador to Russia George Von L.
Meyer, who succeeds to the postmas
ter generalship.
With the retirement of Secretary
Hitchcock Secretary Wilson of the de
partment of agriculture will be the
only member of the late President
McKlnley's cabinet who has remained
consecutively in that of the present
chief executive. Secretary of State
Root was a member of President Mc

TOWN ABOUT WIPED OUT.
Washington, Ark., Swept by Destruc
tive Tornado.
Hope, Ark., March 2.A destructive
tornado struck the town of Washing
ton and almost literally wiped it out
of existence. Two negroes are report
ed killed and several persons were in
jured. Among the buildings destroyed
were the Presbyterian church, Epis
copal church, Judge W. Y. Ritter's
residence, T. W. Williams' store, the
residence of Sheriff Wilson and other
structures. All wires are down.
ARBITRATION IS SUGGESTED
RAILROAD MANAGERS WANT DE-
MANDS OF MEN SUBMITTED
TO COMMITTEE.
Chicago, March 2.Arbitration was
offered during the day by the railroad
managers as a means to avert a great
strike in the event of an unfavorable
vote by the trainmen and conductors
on the proposition made by the rail
ways.
Whether this plan will ultimately
be accepted by the employes involved
none of the officers of the organiza
tion would say. It is declared by the
latter to be practically certain, how
ever, that the wage proposition of the
railways will not be accepted by the
men and that the strike vote will be
carried by a large majority.
The railway magnates now call it a
trap through an understanding which
was reached when the negotiations
opened. It is claimed that the men
on one system cannot accept any set
tlement until the questions involved
are disposed of satisfactorily to the
men on the forty-two systems which
took part in the conference.
DECISION OF ARBITRATORS.
Street Car Men Get More Pay but No
Shorter Hours,
San Francisco, March 2.The board
of arbitration of the differences be
tween the United Railroads and its
employes has made public its decision.
There are two opinions. The major
ity opinion, signed by Chief Justice
Beatty of the state supreme court and
Major McLaughlin, who was named as
a member of the board by the United
Railroads, finds that the car men are
entitled to an increase of wages
amounting to about 20 per cent, but
refuses the men's demand for an
eight-hour day. Electrical workers,
stationary firemen and construction
workers were given practically the in
creases that were asked and a reduc
tion in hours.
Rev. P. C. Yorke, who represented
the employes, made a minority report
favoring an eight-hour day for the car
men.
FATHER DEAD SON DYING.
Former Killed in Effort to Save His
Offspring.
Chicago, March 2.In an attempt
to save the life of his son Michael,
eight years old, John Nolls, forty
eight years old, a teamster, was killed
by a passenger train.
The boy was standing on the track
as the train approached. His father
ran to him and had just grasped his
son's arm when the train struck them.
Nolls was thrown on top of his son
and the train passed over them.
When railroad employes reached
them they were unconscious. The
father died on the way to a hospital.
The son is said by physicians to be in
a serious condition.
Dutch Mail Steamer Ashore.
Flushing, Holland, March 2.The
Dutch mail steamer Koningen Wilhel

passengers on board.

SUBSIDY BILL KILLED
LOWER HOUSE DEFEATS COMPRO-
MISE MEASURE BY A VOTE
OF 154 TO 161.
REPUBLICANS EN6A6E IN FILIBUSTER
PREVENT INTRODUCTION OF SUB-
STITUTE OFFERED BY MICH-
IGAN MEMBER.
Washington, March 2.The house
defeated the compromise ship subsidy
bill by a vote of 154 to 161 after dis
posing of numerous amendments. The
provisions for subsidizing fast steam
er lines from San Francisco and Pu
get sound to the Orient were first
stricken out. The provision for a line
from the Gulf ports to the isthmus of
Panama met the same fate, as did the
clause providing for a line from the
Pacific coast via Hawaii and the Sa
moan islands to Australasia. An
amendment offered by Mr. Fordney of
Michigan, reducing the subsidy for a
mail service from the Atlantic coast
to Buenos Ayres from $400,000 to
$266,000, was defeated by a vote of
114 to 140.
Ten minutes before the hour of 3
was reached, at which time a final
vote was to be taken on the bill, the
Republicans, under the lead of Mr.
Littauer and Mr Payne of New York,
began a filibuster order to prevent
Mr. Fordney of Michigan offering a
substitute bill based on tonnage sub
sidy. The filibuster was successful
and the vote on the passage of the bill
was taken.
INFORMATION SUFFICIENT.
Harriman May Not Be Compelled to
Answer Questions.
New York, March 2-E. H. Harri
man, the chief witness at the inter

Several of the interstate commerce
commissioners, now that the inquiry
into the Harriman railroad properties
has closed, have returned to Washing
ton There will be a conference in
Washington in a few days to decide
whether the supreme court will be
asked to compel Mr. Harriman to
answer some of the questions to which
he refused to reply. Some of the com
missioners, however, are of the opin
ion that this is not necessary and that
the testimony as given was ample.
Messrs. Kellogg and Severance,
counsel for the government in the in
quiry, will join members of the com
mission in Washington to confer about
the report to be made. They declined
to give any statement as to what they
regarded the most important revela
tion in the inquiry.

WILL FIGHT TWO-CENT FARE.
Western Railroad Attorneys Hold Con
ference at Chicago.
Chicago, March 2.The Western
railroads have determined to fight in
the courts all state laws making 2
cents a mile the maximum passenger
rate. Attorneys of several of the larg
est roads held a conference here with
a view to ha\ms| all roads pursue the
same policy as to litigation over the
2 cents a mile rate.
The plan now generally favored is
to ask the courts to restrain the en
forcement of the law on the ground
that a rate of 2 cents a mile would
cause the railroads a heavy loss and
in many cases would require them to
run trains at less than the actual op
erating expenses, regardless of the
fixed charges, taxes and other obliga
tions of the roads, of which they
claim the passenger traffic should as
sume a share
