PRICE TWO CENTS. ENGLAND WILL MARE THE MINES \OF THE RAND PAY FOR THE WAR HOW BRITAIN WILL PAY COST OF WAR Government Decides to Raise $250,000,000 by Taxing the Transvaal Gold Mines—Tre mendous Roar Coming. iMmw York Sun Sjtmolml Sarvlcm London, June 13.— is learned on good authority that the British government has decided to levy $250,000,000 on the Transvaal gold mines toward paying the cost of the war. This would pay about one-half of the war expenses. Sir David Barbour, „ ex-Indian finance minister, who was commissioned to report on the taxable capacity of the mines, advised Mr. Chamberlain to levy $175,000,000, but Mr. Chamberlain had a consultation with Mr. Milner and increased the maximum to the amount stated. Mr. Barbour's report is awaited with the keenest interest here in political and financial circles. This recommendation, when known, is certain \o cause consternation among Kaffir stockholders, who fancied that the idea of taxing the mines had been aban doned. - JOYAL SHOT TO KILL Wife Murder Almost Done at St. Cloud. MRS. JOYAL WOUNDED TWICE Miots Fired at v Second Woman Miss Their Mark— Sequel of an Estrangement. - ' Bpecial to The Journal. SL Cloud, Minn., June 13. — Adelarde Joyal, a French Canadian employed in the car shops, would now be a double mur derer had his aim been true. At 9:45 this morning he met his wife on the river bank and shot her twice, one bullet pass ing through the left side of her neck and the other into her left shoulder. He fired a third time but missed. The Joyals have been living apart for some time and divorce proceedings, insti tuted by the wife, are now pending. She charges cruel and inhuman treatment and drunkenness, and there are also serious religious differences. To-day when husband and wife met, by accident it is supposed, Joyal asked her for a kiss and called uj>on her to return home and live with him. She refused. He grasped her by the arm and fired two thots at closa range from a 38-caliber revolver. Mrs. Joyal broke away and escaped the third shot. She ran into the home of Mrs. Kranz, a neighbor, and Joyal in hot pursuit fired his two remain ing shots at Mrs. Kranz who was outside the door. Fortunately his aim was poor and the woman was unhurt. The police found Joyal hidden in some Bhrubbery and easily effected his arrest, although he had reloaded his gun and probably had planned to make a fight. Mrs. Joyal was taken to St. Raphael's hos pital and will no doubt speedily recover. WILL TRAMP NO MORE Driver of a "Dead Wagon 1' Hears From Hia Rich Dad.

Berlin, June 13.—Further reliable news about the death of Louis Stern, the former United States commercial agent at Bamberg, Bavaria, who committed suicide June 10 by shooting himself, shows he had not made any returns to the state department during the last eighteen months, but if he owed money to the United State* it is only a small amount. On the other hand, a number of people in the United States for whom Stern had collected on estates in this country have entered complaints that he had not re mitted the amounts collected. A judgment for 2,000 marks against Stern was recently rendered by the Bamberg court, and the deceased committed suicide the very day Ihe 2,000 marks was due. Stern had accepted a fine commercial position at Bamberg Wt the firm nullified the arrangement when it learned of the judgment. Independence for Macedonia Hmw York Sun Sdbclxl Smnvtom.

Special to The Journal. Washington, June 13.—Indian Inspector Tinker's report on charges against In dian Agent Richards, at Fort Berthold, N. D., were received at the interior de partment to-day and laid on Secretary Hitchcock's desk. Information about the report was refused, but it is intimated that it is not unfavorable. Among the charges made was one that he gave liquor to some Indians who were cleaning a cis tern on the reservation. Another was that Richards was lax in attending to the Indians in his charge in that he did not get around much. Richards' explanation of the latter charge is that the agent has only one leg and can get over the reservation only in a buggy. Tinker's findings in the liquor charge were not learned. Inspector Graves' report on the charges against Agent Harding, at Yankton, S. D., has been in the department some time. He recommended Harding's removal and it was stated when the report was re ceived that the recommendation would probably be followed. The delay indi cates, however, that efforts are being made to keep him in the service. It is said some action will be taken in a week or ten days. Dr. C. A.

A STRUGGLE IN STEEL CONTROL OF INDEPENDENT CO/S Fierce Contest Between the Trust and the Pennsylvania Railway. Special to The Journal. New York, June 13.—The big advances in the shares of the Independent Steel company to-day, including Colorado Fuel & Iron and Tennessee Coal & Ircn, ?ave rise to a score of rumors, among them that a fierce contea: was on for control of the independent con cerns by two powerful syndicates—the United States Steel corporation and the Pennsyl vania railroad. . President Schwab of the steel corporation has secured control of the Bethlelem Steel company, md the Pennsylvania railroad ha 3 purchased a controllh g interest in the Penn sylvania Steel company.

It is said that an attempt is also being made to buy out th 3 Tennessee Coal & Iron company ard the Colorado Fuel & Iron company, tut this re port cannot be confirmed here.

THUKSDAY EVENING, JUNE 13, 1901. OPPOSITION TO BABCOCK Voices Raised Against His Proposed Tariff Law. EAST AGAINST WEST la This Manner Will the Sections Be Arrayed. CONGRESSMAN IN CRITICISE He Sarym the Babcock Bill Will Be Acceptable to the Trusts. M^T^H* T>%r Jo? 1 Bureau. Room *3. Potl JButlding, Washington' f :>, ...;.-.-^ Washington, June 13.—The men and the interests opposing the Babcock bill are now having their inning. The American Tariff league, and the Home Market club composed of the large manufacturers and high protective Interests, generally, of New England, have denounced it in sweep ing terms. A member of the Pennsyl vania republican delegation in congress, speaking, it is understood, for the others, has been interviewed in opposition to it. Congressman Dalzell, of Pittsburg, mem ber of the house committee on rules, has also scoken against it, and has been fol lowed by Chairman Payne of the ways and means committee. Representative Taylor, of Ohio, and by other well-known republicans of the eastern states. Already it begins to appear that the struggle in congress next winter, which is almost inevitable, will show the eastern states arrayed as a unit against the bill and the states of the middle west largely in favor of it. If there are any friends of the bill in the east, they have not thus far raised their voices. This division of forces was to have been expected, for the east is the home of the men who think they have most to fear from any seem ing departure from the principle of high protection. The bulk of the country's manufacturing is carried on there. In the west, however, where business in terests are more diversified, and where high protection has been at times quite stoutly opposed by loyal republicans, as witness the state of party sentiment when the McKinley bill was an issue, any re moval of duties, especially if the trusts are to be injured as a result, will be wel comed with loud acclaim. It is still possible, as has been said in these dispatches, that the party leaders will get together next winter and prevent the Babcock bill from, becoming crystal lized into law; but it is hardly possible that anything can be done which will pre vent congress from debating the proposi tion for a considerable portion of the ses sion. If conditions in the Philippines, Cuba and Porto Rico were settled to the satis-j faction of the country, there might be dan ger that the Babcock idea would precipi tate a revolt within the republican party even more serious than that which accom panied the McKinley bill. But our for eign affairs are in such a nebulous state, and the future is so filled with uncertain ty because of that fact, that every bit of cohesive D&wer which the party can de velop will be brought strongly to bear, with the probable result that the tariff will have a secondary place in the next cam paigns. Under certain conditions it may not appear at all, although the high pro tectionists will hold that a prophesy of this sort is almost too good to be true. Should it appear, however, republicans in the western states will be prevented from Continued on Second Page, MERGER NON-OPERATIVE AS TO THE OIL COMPANIES American Linseed Not to Go to the Union Lead and Oil Concern. Special to The Journal. New York, June 13.—Homer Wise, pres ident of the Union Lead and Oil company, which waa incorporated a short time ago with a caaital of $15,000,000 for the pur pose of absorbing the American Linseed Oil company, Issued the following state ment to-day: Mr. Rockefeller and his associates having acquired the control of the American Lin seed company and having taken over the control of the company by the substitution of directors representing his interests, the Union Lead and Oil company has declared the proposed agreement of merger nonoperative and has instructed the representative depos itors to return the stock which has been de posited under said agreement. The Union Lead and Oil company owns a very large interest In the stock of the American Linseed company and will co-operate with Mr. Rocke feller in every way. The strength and activity of both the common and preferred stock of tire Na tional Lead company to-day gives some color to the report that Rockefeller in terests are seeking control and that the company will be merged with the American Linseed company. SAFE. WHY MISS NOBLE IS FIRST BORROWED PHRASES NOT MARKED Miss Sanford, One of the Judges on Thought, Recognized Grady and Others. Special to The Journal. Grand Forks, N. D., June 13.—iAn impor tant announcement was made in this city yesterday by Ralph E. Gentle of the South Dakota agricultural college, president of the Western League of Oratory, in con nection with the recent interstate ora torical contest held in this city. At that time it was announced that J. F. Jenson of the agricultural college of Fargo took first place, and Miss Edith Noble of Mitchell, S. D., second, but it seems that later developments have changed things very materially. The judges on thought and composition were Miss Sanford of the University of Minnesota, Professor Ruhring, superin tendent of schools at Winona, and Rev. Mr. Simmons -of Minneapolis. Miss San ford failed to give the percentages on 'The New South," which was the subject of the oration of Mr. Jenson. President Gentle says that A. W. Fowler, secretary of the Western League, told him he had received a personal letter from Miss San ford in which she said she had placed Mr. Jenson second. President Gentle's suspicions were aroused by other circum stances, and he determined to remain in Grand Forks till he could thoroughly probe the matter. After telegraphing and writing for sev eral days, a letter was received from Miss Sanford seating that she had not marked "The New South" on the grounds of plagiarism, several quotations from Grady and others not having been ack nowledged by the author. President Gen tle therefore announced yesterday that there was nothing left for him to do but change the percentage totals to agree with this' fact, as follows: First Miss Edith Noble, Mitchell, oration, ' "Tito Malema"; second, E. D. Sehoenberger Yankton, oration, "The Goal of Evolu tion"; third, S. Steenberg. University of North Dakota, oration, "The Brother hood of Man"; fourth, J. F. Jenson Fargo oration, "The New South." The matter is arousing a great deal of comment, but President Gentle is firm in the opinion that strict justice has been done to all, as it would not be possible to give Mr. Jenson first place when his oration had been thrown out ,on the grounds of plagiarism.

CLAYTON-BULWER AGREEMENT Abrogation of This Treaty Is In volved in the Pending Chi nese Situation. Special to The Journal. Washington, June 13.—There "will be no concert of the oowers on the Question of guaranteeing the Chinese indemnity. The foreign diplomats in Washington repre senting the nations directly interested have been conducting an investigation for several weeks to ascertain definitely the attitude of the United States and after a most thorough inquiry they have unwill ingly been forced to the conclusion that this government will not recede from the position it has taken. It can be positive ly stated that the continental European governments have been advised that the United States will stand with England in opposition to a guaranty and all hope has been abandoned of reaching concerted action. The position of the United States Is ex plained as largely influenced by a desire to establish close relations with Great Britain at this time for the purpose of using the friendship when congress next winter abrogates the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. The Chinese question is being used, it is said in diplomatic circles, to pave the way for such an emergency and to make sure that Great Britain raises no serious trouble over the aotion of con gress. This is the view held by foreign diplomats resident in Washington. PLAN FOR MRS. M CKINLEY She May Be Taken to a, Cottage on the Seashore. 2iew York Sun Special Serwic* Atlantic City, N. J., June 13.—1t is stated here that an agent for President McKinley is in the city looking over a cottage at Chelsea. It is also said that the president has been advised to remove Mrs. McKinley to the seashore as soon as her health would permit, in the hope that the sea air would prove beneficial to her. Abner McKinley, the president's brother, and his family, of New York, visit At lantic City every summer, and are great admirers of this resort. Washington, June 13.—After the usual morning consultation of Mrs. McKinley's physicians the following bulletin was issued: "Mrs. McKinley's physicians re port that her condition continues to im prove."

HALTERLESS HORSES FOR THE FORESTERS St. Paul's Magnificent Provision for the City's Guests—Parade Delayed Two Hours by This Botch. The St. Paul Committee Kept the Finely Ca parisoned Steeds for Local Marshals and Committeemen. Woodmen'i Program, THIS EVENING. Vaudeville entertainment at Auditor ium, St. Paul. TO-MORROW. All day business session of head camp. The day will be devoted by the St. Paul committee to a personally conducted ex cursion for visitors to Lake Minnetonka. This outing will include special trains from St. Paul and Minneapolis, a steamer cruise of the lake, dinner at Hotel St. Louis, music and dancing. Evening—Parade of Foresters in Mm St. Paul came within an ace of missing the much heralded parade of Foresters altogether to-day. When it was finally pulled off, some four hours behind sched ule time, it proved by far the greatest attraction the visiting Woodmen have put up for the capital city. The narrow es cape from a loss of this great feature was caused entirely by the indifference of the St. Paul Woodmen to the needs of the officers of the troops at Camp Northcott. The long and tedious delay borne by the thousands of people who thronged the streets of St. Paul was in no way due to any failure of the officers or men at Camp Northcott to do their part. When re veille sounded in camp this morning the men were out of their cots with a bound, and long before 8 o'clock, the time when they were scheduled to start on their march into St. Paul to join the other Woodmen at 9:30, were in their ranks and battalions were formed by Brigadier Gen eral Liggett and Adjutant Ringer. SteedU-ss Officerx. But there was a different scene in the officers' quarters. The general commit tee on entertainment for the visitors at St. Paul, of which Mr. Monro6 is chair man, had made arrangements, according to their report to General Mitchell, com manding officer at the camp, for horses for the sixteen officers and for two other steeds for Head Consul Northcott and the head clerk, Major C. W. Hawes. At 8 o'clock there was not a horse in camp. The officers at headquarters notified the committee at St. Paul by telephone that none of the officers mounts. A most affable answer came back to the effect that the nags were on their way to the camp and should have arrived. Half an hour later General Mitchell again telephoned to St. Paul and said that the steeds had not yet arrived, and that the men who were waiting in line, as well as the officers, were much put out by the delay. A very curt reply was received, the gentleman on the other end of the line, a member of the St. Paul committee, who had had the matter in charge, volun teering the information that they had done all in their power and could not help matters if the arrangements were not satisfactory to the officers in the camp. Nine o'clock brought the first of the horses into camp, and the indignation of the officers, which had been rising grad ually since early yesterday, was expressed in language about as forcible as their vocabularies would permit. SaddlealeßH Horses. There were just five horses in the first consignment furnished by the St. Paul committee, and they were, as one officer expressed it, "the tackiest lot of nags" ever offered by a city to its guests. There was not a good steed in the lot, and not one of them was provided with either saddle or bridle. But these horses, hacl they been well equipped, or equipped at all, would not answer for the eighteen men. The St. Paul committee was in formed that unless every horse promised for the camp was furnished in short order, not an officer would accompany the parade to the city. It is probable that the men would have refused to march without their officers. Nortlicott Wait* for a Horse. Governor Northcott had been informed of conditions at the camp, but he came out, anyway, with the head clerk, and was compelled to wait about the camp for nearly an hour before his horse ar rived. It was too fractious an animal for the head consul, who Is not as sprightly as some of the younger officers in camp, and another long wait followed. At 10:20 fourteen horses had been se cured, and word came from St. Paul that that was the beet the committee could do. Every available mount in the capital city had been "cinched" by the St. Paul Foresters themselves, who man aged to put into line their whole civil staff of officers, including the aides and inspectors, twenty-six men in all, on twenty-six of as fine horses as St. Paul can furnish. There was none left for the guests. Fair Promises. The camp officers would not have felt such chagrin at their treatment at the hands of their hosts had it not been for the fact that the committee in charge of things at St. Paul led them to believe that everything had been arranged for and that nothing was wanting, until the very last minute, when it was impossible for the officers to procure horses on their own personal account. It was a deliberate throw down at the hands of the St. Paul Woodmen, and the officers feel it deeply. With only fourteen horses In camp, some of the officers were compelled to miss the parade, and Brigadier General Anderson, acting quartermaster general, and the commissary general gave up places in order to accommodate other offi cers. These officers, with tfie command ing general's orderly, G. A. Crawford, who also should hava bad a place with the general, were compelled to take the street car to St. Paul or miss the parade. The ladies in the camp, who were to have been provided carriages to the city, had to call on their husbands, who engaged hacks for them. (nu«e of the Trouble The trouble at Camp Northcott, caused by the negligence of the St. Paul com- mittee in supplying the needs or' the visit ors, commenced yesterday, when a case very similar to that of this morning near ly caused the abandonment of the dress parade. The committee had promised to furnish horses for the officers in camp and for Head Consul Northcott and Gov ernor Van Sant, who were to review the companies. These horses were to be at the officers' quarters at 4 o'clock, and the drill com petition of the teams was called off at a little after 3 o'clock to allow the men to prepare for the dress parade. At 4 o'clock they were ready but the horses did not arrive and Brigadier General Liggett de cided to wait for them. He kept the troops in line ready for the march from 4 o'clock until 6, and General Mitchell, the head consul and the governor decided that they would not keep the men waiting longer, and the line was allowed to pasa in review before headquarters. The reviewers occupied chairs beneath the general's tent, from where only a very poor view of the troops could be had. General Mitchell decided then that he would not depend on the committee for his horse this morning and engaged one personally. When it was not brought into camp this morning at the appointed time he telephoned the person of whom it had been engaged, and was told that it had been called for and taken by a local Woodman, and the general expected to see it bearing one of his hosts at the head of the parade. Officers Coiupluiu. "This is the worst reatment any body of Woodmen has ever received," said aa indignant officer from out of town, this morning. "The failure of the St. Paul people to furnish our horses yesterday was a very serious offense, but their ac tions this morning were disgraceful. Not only have they failed to keep their prom ise in supplying the needs of the camp, but they have failed to treat us with respect." Northcott Starts at L.ant. The incomplete corps of officers, ac companied by Head Consul Northcott and Head Clerk Hawes, the two latter in civilian dress, finally left camp at 10:20, two hours and a half after they were ready for the start. The horses were anything but what one would expect to see as mounts for offi cers, and resembled more than anything else, hack nags or farm horses, and the equipment was not only painfully plain, but ragged, in marked contrast to the ap pearance of the sprightly, sleek steed upon which a civilian from St. Paul, be decked with a long, flowing sash of red, white and green, who came out to hurry up the officers, rode. Had it not been for the elegant, well groomed uniforms of the officers, and the strictly military appearance of the men themselves, the camp officers would hay« been a veritable awkward squad. The Procession. The companies which had fallen In at 8 o'clock were compelled to wait two long hours in a broiling hot sun, before start ing on their long march into the city. When, at 10 o'clock, Brigadier General Liggett ordered the line to march, the companies each formed in a single line, extended from Victoria street to St Albans, a distance of four long blocks. The line moved forward on Fuller, turning at St. Albans, and, with the brig adier general and Adjutant Ringer riding ahead, the troops set out to join the St. Paul end, which had been compelled to wait for about three hours for them. Hagenow's band of Lincoln was in the lead. They were followed by the Omaha brigade, which included Lincoln division. No. 1. The Kansas City, Mo., battalion occupied second place in the line.

The Woodmen were on parade this morning. Gay with banners, uniforms and umbrellas of every color, they daz zled the eyes of the multitude. In numbers the parade "was a disap pointment. At a liberal estimate there were not more than 6,000 in line, of whom 2,000 were uniformed Foresters, 1,000 roy al neighbors In floats, tally-hos and car riages, and the rest an army of Minne sota Woodmen, on foot, and not uni formed, but more or less gay with colors. There were sixteen bands. The parade was late, as parades always are. The sweltering crowd fairly filled the streets along the line of march. Sum mit avenue and Sixth street were surging seas of impatient humanity for two hours before the vanguard hove in sight. When it came, it was just an hour passing the Ryan hotel, where the guests of the day viewed it from a temporary Btand. Column Arrives at ll:2O.
