AFTER THU ELECTION.
Extra Session of the Senate to Ce
Called Early in November.
Washington, Aug. 13.Advices re
teived here indicate that President
Roosevelt will call the senate in ex
traordinary session early in Novem
ber.
Ever since it became evident that
nothing would be accomplished as to
reciprocity with Cuba at the recent
session of congress rumors of a more
or less definite nature have been in cir
culation that the president would call
an extra session, either of the entire
congress to enact Cuban reciprocity
legislation, or of the senate to ratify
if possible a reciprocal treaty with
Cuba.
During the past week it has been
stated that it was the purpose of Presi
dent Roosevelt to call a special ses
sion of the senate early in September.
It can be stated by authority that he
has no such intention. His time and
that of many members of both political
parties will be occupied during Sep
tember and October. It is under
stood to be the belief of the president
that a session of the senate held for
the purpose ot ratifying a reciprocity
treaty with Cuba would be much more
likely to be fruitful of results if held
after the November elections than if
held before. It is assured that the
question of the relations of the United
States with Cuba will enter largely
into the approaching campaign and it
is stated that the president feels the
Democrats will be less likely to offer
serious opposition to a reciprocity
treaty after the election than they
would before that time.
A treaty with Cuba practically has
been prepared. It requires only the
finishing touches and the signatures
of Minister Quesada and Secretary of
State Hay to make it ready for pres
entation to the senate.
No definite date, it is understood,
has been fixed upon for the meeting in
November, but that it will be soon
after the election is reasonably cer
tain. The president, it is said, hopes
to have the reciprocity question
cleared away entirely before the reg
ular session of congress.
"THE FOES OF MARRIAGE."
Professor Andrews Lectures at the
University of Chicago.
Chicago, Aug. 13.E. Benjamin
Andrews, chancellor of the University
of Nebraska, in a lecture upon "The
Foes of Marriage," at the University
of Chicago, declared that the Ameri
can divorce laws are so loose that
they are a curse both upon parents
and their children. Professor An
drews also claimed that a bachelor has
no place in the social scale and that
to marry a consumptive is a crime.
Advice to persons intending marriage
was plentiful in Dr. Andrews' lecture.
"Hasty marriages do more evil to the
marriage relation than anything else,"
he declared. "Early marriages ought
to be discouraged. No one should
marry before the age of twenty-one
twenty-five is the best age.
"The ease with which divorce is
secured in this country is the greatest
foe to marriage, and, in fact, creates
divorces which otherwise would not
have been thought of. The injustice
done to the children by a divorce In
the family is so great that no language
can do justice to it. No one who has
ever been divorced can pass through
the experience unharmed. With jt
goes the best possibilities of a life of
service to this world never to return."
TWO FATALLY SHOT.
Bl'nd Pigger Killed and a Farmer
Wounded at Edmore, N. D.
Devils Lake, N. D., Aug. 13.George
Hanson, deputy sheriff of this county,
has brought news to this city of a
shooting at Edmore, thirty-five miles
northeast of here, resulting in the
death of George Pelka, a blind pigger,
and the fatal wounding of Carl Okel
son, a Cavalier county farmer, sixty
five years of age.
Details are still meager, but it
seems Pelke and Okelson quarreled
and the former shot the latter, fatally
wounding him. A warrant was issued
and George Hanson, deputy sheriff,
started to arrest Pelke, who made a
threat that he would kill any person
who came to place him custody.
Hanson broke into Pelke's house with
the command, "Throw up your hands,"
which Pelke answered by pulling a
gun. However, Hanson was too quick
and shot Pelke through! the neck, the
man dying half an hour later.

Grand Exalted Ruler Order Is
Prosperous.

fraternity, representatives of every
section of the country, Judge O. W.
Powers of Salt Lake bade them wel
come to the city and all it contained,
while Governor Heber M. Wells laid
before them as their own the state of
Utah and the riches thereof. The
meeting, which followed an immense
military and civic parade marked the
opening of the annual reunion of the
grand lodge of Elks and was attended
by Elks in such numbers that even
the capacity of the great hall of wor
ship was taxed to the utmost. Elks
were present from practically every
state in the Union and even the Hawa
iian islands were represented. Prob
ably 12,000 visiting Elks are in Salt
Lake, forming, accordmg to Exalted
Grand Ruler Pickett, one of the best
and most representative gatherings of
the fraternity he has ever seen.
The meeting of the grand lodge was
held in Assembly hall in the afternoon
and after the annual report of Grand
Exalted Ruler Pickett had been de
livered and other reports presented
the election of grand officers for the
ensuing year was taken up. This re
sulted as follows:
Grand exalted ruler, George A.
Cronk, Omaha grand leading knight,
W. V. Crock, Lexington, Ky. grand
loyal knight, Judge A. H. Pickens,
Denver grand lecturing knight,

only one or two of the minor offices.
The report of the secretary showed
an exceedingly prosperous condition.
Increase of membership of about 26,-
000 during the past year was shown,
bringing the total up to about 125,000.
The number of Elk lodges in the
United States was reported at 805, an
increase of 85 during the past year.

convention is the question of the next
annual meeting place. Baltimore
and Saratoga Springs are making^ a
vigorous fight for the honor and the
result cannot be forecasted.

welcome of the governor, assuring
him that the Knights would make the

torney of General Jacob H. Smith,
made the following statement:
"General Smith will probably re

tions which confronted the American
troops in the Philippines, the hard
ships they have suffered, the atro
cities of the natives, the circum

of Fifteen Years Ago.

Rev. Charles Hill, a Congregational
minister, has confessed that he fired
the shot that killed the widow Smith
at the mining town of Benwood, fif
teen years ago. She was stepping out
of the door of a neighbor's house when
the bullet struck her and she fell dead.
Three boys shooting at a mark some
distance away were arrested, but the
bullet that caused the death was too
large for their gun. The widow's son
was under suspicion, as it was said
he obtained considerable property by
the death of his mother. The Rev.
Mr. Hill says he was shooting at a
mark with a young man named Wil
liam Trager and that he fired the fatal
shot.

miles around. The limited train,
southbound, rushed into the station
just at the time of the explosion, but
the engineer, realizing the danger,
put on the emergency brake and kept
the train at a distance from the fire.

City, of the Graham and Morton line,
reached the city after a thrilling ex
perience on the lake. For five hours
the boat lay at the mercy of a rough
sea with one of its propellor shafts
broken. It lay helpless in the trough
of the sea and the 200 passengers on

a panic. A tow was finally secured,
however, and the beat reached the
city six hours late.
Silver Strike at Cripple Creek.
Cripple Creek, Colo., Aug. 13.A
strike of sulphide ore, carrying 4,000
ounces of silver and a large percent
age of copper, has been made on Bull
hill, the very center of the Cripple

BURN THE HOUSES OF THE CE-
LESTIALS AND RELIEVE THEM
OF THEIR TREASURE.
DETAILS ARE VERY MEAGER
Outrage Takes Place at a Settlement
In the Malheur Country, Eastern
Oregon, Known as ChinatownTer-
rified Chinamen Rush From Their
Burning Homes With Their Wealth
to Be Knocked Down and Robbed.
Boise, Ida., Aug. 13.News has been
received here of an outrage committed
last Friday by outlaws at Mormon
Basis, in the Malheur country in East
ern Oregon. There was a settlement
known as Chinatown, occupied by
Chinese placer miners. The outlaws
set fire to the houses occupied by the
Chinese. The latter gathered up their
money and rushed out only to be met
by the robbers, who knocked them
down and relieved them of their
treasure. Twenty-two houses were
burned.
Information concerning the affair is
meager and it is not known whether
there were any fatalities.
THUGS KILL POLICEMEN.
Two Chicago Patrolmen Lose Their
Lives in Battle.
Chicago, Aug. 12 Officers Timothy
Devine and Charles T. Pennell, patrol
men of the Chicago police department,
were killed in a revolver battle with
what is supposed to have been a gang
of thugs. Much mystery surrounds
the shooting for both men died before
an adequate account of the shooting
could be obtainedDevine in the am
bulance on the way to the hospital and
Pennell on the operating table while
the surgeons were probing for bullets.
The fight occurred just before dawn
near Jackson boulevard and Ashland
avenue, in the aristocratic section of
the West Side. The fusillade of shots
aroused the entire neighborhood. Cit
izens who heard the dying policemen
groan rushed to their assistance and
saw men running away. Officer Pen
nell meanwhile had heroically stag
gered a hundred feet to a patrol box
and sent in an alarm for assistance.
At once the police set a dragnet for all
suspicious characters and soon had six
men in custody. Before Pennell died
he was able to gasp out a few words
about "robbers," giving descriptions of
two men.
The police have received a clue to
the murderers of Officers Devine and
Pennell. It was slight, but they are
now looking for a man who was
slightly wounded in the head by a
bullet. George Pulford, a druggist at
the corner of Ada and Randolph
streets, a few squares from the scene
of the shooting, says that he was
awakened about two hours after the
shooting by two men, one of whom
was bleeding from a wound behind
the left ear. The man said that he
had fallen against a fence, but Pul
ford says there is no doubt that the
wound was caused by a glancing bul
let.
CONFESSES THE CRIME.
Wisconsin Man Admits Shooting His
Daughter From Ambush.
Woodland, Wis., Aug. 13.Sherrff
Solon has placed under arrest Albert
Ullman, the father of Ida Ullman, who
was shot from ambush on Aug. 3 near
Neosho.
He at once confessed that the shoot
ing was done by him. On the Satur
day before the shooting Ullman drove
to Oconomowoc, pretending to leave
his team there and take the train to
Milwaukee, as was his custom. In
stead he walked back to the place
where his daughter would have to
pass on her way home Sunday. He
fired the shot, returned to Oconomo
woc, and came home with his team,
after the girl had been taken home.
Ullman was seen by neighbors on his
way to Oconomowoc after the shoot
ing. This, coupled with utterances
made by him, led to his arrest. He is
now locked up in the county jail. No
reason for the act can be learned.
DASTARDLY PLOT UNEARTHED.
Scheme to Destroy an Infirmary and
Kill the Inmates Foiled.
Decatur, 111., Aug. 13.A plot to de
stroy the Adams county infirmary and
to kill the forty-four inmates was un
earthed during the day.
A. W. Butler, seqretary of the state
board of charities, was making an in
spection of the buildings and in the
room of Charles Echerman, he found
a pile of rubbish which he ordered re
moved. There was found buried be
neath the rubbish sixty pounds of
dynamite, two two-pound dynamite
bombs and 115 feet of fuse. Echer
man has been an inmate of the in
firmary over twelve years and was
recently reprimanded and since that
time has been sulky.
When the discovery of the dynamite
was made Echerman disappeared and
no trace of him can be found. It is
known that he has a dynamite bomb
with him.
Anarchist Jumps Overboard.
Rome, Aug. 13.The Italian steam
er Citta di Milano, from New York
July 22, which arrived at Genoa Aug.

Sganza of New York committed sui
cide by jumping overboard while the
vessel was off Gibraltar.
Electric Car Jumps the Track.
Detroit, Mich., Aug. 13.An elec
tric car on the Detroit, Ypsilanti and
Ann Arbor road jumped the track

PETER POWER MERGER SUIT.
Examination of the PJaintiff's Attor
ney Suspended.
New York, Aug. 13.The examina
tion of George A. Lamb, counsel for
Peter Power in the action against the
Northern Pacific directors, to prevent
them from turning over the stock of
the company to the Northern Secur
ities company, was resumed before
Special Examiner Mable during the
day.
Replying to questions of Mr. Guth
rie, for the defense, Mr. Lamb said
that Power had paid him for services
in the case, and denied that he had re
ceived a dollar from Camille Weiden
feld of Content & Co. Telling of a
talk with Governor Van Sant of Min
nesota, he declrred that the governor
had said to him that it would "be a
good thing for the state if it could
buy stock of the Northwestern rail
roads, but that the attorney general
of the state had come to the conclu
sion that the state could not buy the
stock.
"Did Mr. Weidenfelt ever tell you
he wanted somebody punished for the
panic of May 9?" asked Mr. Guthrie.
"He has expressed his indignation
about the matter," said Mr. Lamb in
reply. "He said they ought to be got
ten after, but that they were too
strong."
At this point the examination of Mr.
Lamb was suspended, and Camille
Weidenfeld, banker and broker, was
called. He denied that he knew Peter
Power or had ever seen him.
Mr. Weidenfeld absolutely denied
that he ever suggested a figurehead as
plaintiff in the litigation against the
Northern Securities company.
The session after recess was con
sumed in the cross-examination of
Mr. Weidenfeld by Mr. Lamb. Mr.
Weidenfeld admitted that he had con
tributed financially to suits brought
against the Northern Pacific by Milton
Bouden and Ellsworth Chapman. He
had never suggested to Mr. Lamb, he
said, that the latter procure another
plaintiff in these suits so that his
(Weindenfeld's) identity might be con
cealed and it was not a fact that he
bought stocks so that the Bouden and
Chapman suits might be started.
More Minneapolis Indictments.

of the firm of Edwards, Wood & Co.
of St. Paul, charged with reporting
fictitious trades, was expelled from
the Chicago board of trade during the

house that neglected to make the re
quired clearances formed the ground
for charges.
