CIRCUS CLOWN DROPS DEAD
Funny Man Succumbs to Heart Fail
ure at Staples.
Special to The Journal.
Staples, Minn., June 20.—During the
evening performance of Berwick's circus,
the brother of the proprietor, who was
acting as a clown, dropped dead while on
his way to the dressing-room. Heart
failure was the cause.
COULD NOT WOO.
A Goddess That WouldiHot Be Won.
The creator, in making so many kinds
of people, naturally made some that have
. Immense ambition, and desire tor work,
physical and mental. Authors, writers
. and brain-workers are generally hard
working people, frequently they exhaust
vitality bo fast that they -cannot rebuild.
Pood experts have perfected a special
• food called Grape-Nuts for brain workers.
The makers selected from field grains the
proper elements which naturally enter into
rebuilding brain and nerve centers.
A famous woman of West Haven,
• Conn., whom perhaps you will recognize
because of the location, but who requests
that her name be kept from print in this
connection, writes: "Perhaps you would
like to know of my experience with the
. restoring power of your wonderfful Grape-
Nuts Food. I have been a tireless worker.
, Life was full of possibilities. I had a
constitution of Iron and, why not work.
I lived to the fullest limit of my power,
1 following every pursuit with ardor, paint
ing, poetry, writing of books, journalism
and lecturing.
The days were passed in literary work
: and the nights at concerts, theaters and
receptions. I suddenly dropped out, a
mental and -physical wreck. Ambition
died end hope went with it. Religion be
■ camo odious. The world grew dark. It
became a 'carnal house full fo unclean
. bones, not God-like and our Father's.'
I had no desire for food. I could not
woo the 'Goddess sleep that knits up the
raveled sleeve of care.' I contemplated
a weak solution, a leap into the unknown,
when one. day a friend in Yale who knew
my deplorable condition, said, 'Do you
know that Grape-Nuts Food has done a
great deal for me,' and told the details.
•' .1 finally followed his suggestion and began'
: using it. That was one year ago. I wish
. you could see me now. The neighbors say
■ Ido the work of ten women. Igo to bed
with the hens and sleep like a top.
I hear 'the breeze call of incense breath
ing 'morn,' my muscles are like iron, and
my back of steel. I am as alert as the
sparrow with whom I converse every morn
ing as he seeks his matutinal worm.
• I ascribe all of this change, and justly,
to Grape-Nuts Food and wisdom in the
economy of force."
There is a good, sound reason for such
a change as described above. Grape-Nuts
Food is made of the selected elements of
• wheat and barley that are intended by
nature to rebuild the soft gray matter in
the brain and nerve cells throughout the
body. This 'food is so prepared that it
presents these elements in perfect condi
tion for immediate assimilation. The food
is thoroughly cooked at the factory, and
should always be served just as it comes
. from the package .with a little cream. Do
not attempt to stew it but serve it without
' cooking except when combined - with cer
; tain puddings and desserts, and even'
• then '■ the cooking is not necessary except
• to prepare .the other ingredients aside
'.from the Grajje-Nuts. . • ,>• = ;

COPPER CONSOLIDATION
AMALGAMATED LOSES NO TIME
Taking: in the Boston A Montana
and Bntte A Boston
Companies.
New York, June 20.—As had been
expected, the Amalgamated Copper com
pany acted promptly yesterday, upon the
heels of its victory in the injunction suils
against it in the New Jersey court of er
rors and appeals, by filing with the New
Jersey secretary of state at Trenton arti
cles Increasing the capital stock from $75,
--000,000 to $155,000,000, Anson R. Flower
and William G. Rockefeller signed the ar
ticles. New stock will be Issued promptly
for that of the Butte & Boston and the
Boston & Montana companies. F.
Augustus Heinze denies he has agreed to
compromise his thousand and one suits
against the Amalgamated.
The certificate was signed by more than
1,000 stockholders of the Amalgamated
Copper company, giving their consent to
the increase of the capital stock. Among
the signers were these:
Shares.
Marcus Daly 30,000
E. C. Bogert 30,450
Leonard Lewis 30,000
C. H. Clark 13,500
Ladenburg, Thai man & Co 10,736
Thomas Moffltt X.740
Henry Clews & Co 8.350
John W. Sterling S.yuo
F. J. Bosworth 6,300

Boston, June 20. —It was announced here
yesterday that the National Shaw
mutt bank had received a majority of
Boston & Montana and Butte & Boston
copper shares deposited for the purpose
of carrying out the transfer of these
properties to the Amalgamated Copper
company.
It appears that the decision of the
New Jersey court of errors and appeals
was broad enough to remove the last ob-
Btacle to the consolidation of Amalga
mated, Boston & Montana and Butte &
Boston. The National Shawmutt bank im
mediately began giving receipts in ex
change .for Kidder, Peabody & Co.'s rights
for Montana and Butte shares and will
deliver Amalgamated shares for the re
ceipts, as goon as possible.
MUSS WITH MUSCOVITES
TURN OP UNITED STATES NEXT
Oar Rights Under the Treaty With
Russia Infringed
Upon.
Washington, June 20.—The situation as
to the retaliatory tariff war between the
United States and Russia is such that
the next move must be made by the Uni
ted States, if the contest is to be pur
sued.
Secretary Gage, in his letter, raises the
question whether the Russian government
has not infringed upon the rights of the
United States under the treaty. Article
six of the treaty of commerce with Rus
sia of 1832 reads:
No higher or other duties shall be imposed
on the importation into the United States of
any article, the produce or manufacture of
Russia; and no higher or other duties shall
be Imposed on the importation of any article,
the produce or manufacture of the United
States, than are or shall be payable on the
like article being the product or manufacture
of any foreign country.
By levying maximum duties on United
States bicycles, reams and machinery, and
especially designating them as United
States product, the Russian government
has, it is not doubted, made Just such a
discrimination as is provided against in
this article of the treaty. The question
1b raised, however, whether by our ac
tion in levying a duty on Russian petro
leum and specially describing it as auch,
the United States government has not also
violated this article.
There is no penalty article in the treaty,
but under the common practice of interna
tional law a country may denounce the
whole of a treaty where it is satisfied that
one of its provisions has been purposely
broken.
If such extreme action is taken in the
case there will be no trade treaty between
Russia and the United States, and as far
as Russia is concerned the maximum
tariffs which are practically prohibitive
would apply to all imports from the United
States. On the other hand, if such ac
tion by Russia is regarded as discrimina
tion, the United States government may
by existing law exclude any or all im
ports from Russia.
Treasury officials protest against the as
sumption in some quarters that the de
partment has taken up the question of
the duty on petroleum imported from Rus
sia and decided it adversely to that coun
try, well knowing that little or no petro
leum la brought from there into the Uni
ted States.
As far as the department knows not a
dollar in duties has been collected on Rus
sian petroleum imported direct, nor was
the action of March 9, it is claimed, taken
with any special reference to that coun
try.
GUARDIAN SOUGHT
Trying; to Prevent an Agred Minne
sotan From Marrying:.
Lowell, Mass., June 20. — A hear
ing was opened here yesterday and
adjourned until Friday on the petition
of Rev. F. M. Edmunds of Minnesota for
guardianship for his father, T. S. Ed
munds, who is 84 jears old, yet insists
upon marrying through the aid of a matri
monial newspaper. His son asks that an
other son, who lives in Boston, be made
guardian to prevent the marriage.
Evidence was introduced to prove that
Mr. Edmunds, Sr., was rapidly failing
mentally. A number of strange women
have called to see him as a result of cor
respondence in reply to matrimonial ad
vertisements. The old gentleman opposed
the guardianship vigorously.

SHOOTING OF KELLER
BARKER AND WIFE AS WITNESSES
Trial of the Man Who Shot a Min
later Nearlns Its
' Close.
New York, June 20.—The fate of Thomas
G. Barker, on trial at Jersey City for the
shooting of Rev. John Keller, will be with
the jury to-day. The defense prac
tically had finished when the court ad
journed last evening. It is not thought
Prosecutor Erwin will take long in rebut
tal.
Barker and his wife were upon the stand
yesterday. They told their story, so far as
the court would allow, in answers to
questions of the counsel for the defense,
and, although the record does not show it,
Mr. Van Winkle got reference to the al
leged assault before the jury In one way
and another, though the nature of the
"aesault" was not brought out.
Barker on the stand told his version of
the shooting. He said he met Keller and
that Keller spoke to him. This was in
direct contradiction of Keller's testimony
on the subject, as he claimed not to have
met anyone.
Barker said he responded to Keller's
greeting by calling Keller a villain,
charging him with outraging Mrs. Barker,
then, he said, he began firing. Mr. Keller,
when on the stand, swore that not a word
was spoken and that he saw no one.
The purpose of Barker's testimony was
to show that after having brooded for a
period over what his wife had told him
he was in a, morbid state of mind and
when he came face to face with the min
ister he was carried away by feeling and
began firing; that it was sudden, violent
and temporary insanity, lasting but a
moment, but long enough to cover the
period of the shooting.
When the court closed the defense was
bringing testimony to support this idea
wlLh expert medical testimony. Barker
admitted he bought the revolver about the
time he first heard the news, and it wor
ried him and caused him sleepless nights.
He denied, however, that it was bought
for the purpose of shooting the clergyman.
Mrs. Barker was a little nervous
at first, but this quickly wore off.
She calmly answered the questions of her
husband's lawyers and by the time she
was put under cross-examination appeared
to be under perfect self-control.
Previous to the resumption of the trial
to-day, there was whispered conference
between Judge Blair and the lawyers in
the case, the subject of which was un
derstood to be the publication in several
papers of this city and New Jersey of
what purported to be a sworn statement
by Mrs. Barker of the circumstances of
the alleged assault upon her by Mr. Kel
ler, April 19, 1899. and which constituted,
as alleged, the justification for the at
tempt upon Keller's life.
County Prosecutor Erwin, addressing
the court, stated that the published story
of Mrs. Barker had been brought to his
attention and he hoped the court would
take such action as it deemed wise in the
matter. The county prosecutor said to
make public such a statement at such a
time was a violation of the line of con
duct that had been laid down by the courts
in such cases as the one pending.
Mr. Van Winkle, counsel for Barker,
replied that so far as any contempt was
concerned, the press might be disciplined
as the court pleased. Mrs. Barker, he
said, had many friends. She was not on
trial and her friends had the right to
publish anything they saw fit. Personally
he and his partner, Mr. Wall and .Mr.
Barker had nothing to do with the publi
cation. The court had power to do with
the matter in its charge to the jury as it
saw fit.
Judge Blair said he would talk to the
jury when the proper time came. He con
tinued:
There can be no doubt of the motive of the
publication at this time. The court will make
a rigid investigation of this reprehensible
act at the proper time and it will be
thorough.
The examination of witnesses was then
resumed.
Mr. Keller testified in his own defense.
He denied that he had ever borrowed
money of Mr. Barker. He said be had
paid money to Mrs. Barker, but it was be
cause of threatening letters sent by Bar
ker and not because he owed anything.
The minister denied that Mrs. Barker left
the church because of an assault on her.
Several witnesses testified that Mrs.
Barker's reputation for veracity was bad.

Syndicate Gobbles Up $25,000,000
of "St. Paul" Stock.
MAY BE OFFERED TO THE U. P.
Important Directors' Meetings Are
Scheduled for the Near Future
—Tod's Resignation.
Mmw York Sun Soaolal Servlca.
New York, June 20.—A syndicate has
acquired $25,000,000 (par value) of the
stock of the St. Paul railroad. A portion
of this consists of the holdings of James
Henry Smith, who is now in London., and
Peter Geddes. The remainder of the
stock was acquired either by private sale
or by purchase in the open market, when
James J. Hill and J. Plerpont Morgan
were attempting to get control of St. Paul
for the benefit of the Northern Pacific.
It is said that the $25,000,000 of stock will
be offered to the Union Pacific railroad,
but that it is now in the hands of Mr.
Morgan and Kuhn 4 Loeb & Co., and its
disposition will be decided upon later. It
is possible that the railway securities
company will enlarge its scope and will
take some of the holdings of Kuhn, Loeb
& Co., and. J. P. Morgan & Co. in various
properties.
The directors of the Union Pacific will
meet in New York in July and it is stated
upon high authority that the " common
stock will go upon a 5 per cent basis.
The directors are non-committal upon the
subject at present.
The directors of the Chicago, Burling
ton & Quincy will hold an adjourned meet
ing Friday. It is believed that the ques
tion of the disposition of the Burlington
freight traffic will be discussed and a
definite plan agreed upon. Up to the pres
ent time the underwriting syndicate has
.paid only $7,000,000 in cash under the
terms of the circular providing for part
payment of stock in cash if the stock
.holders so desired.
Todd'a Resignation.
A development in the northwestern sit
uation which created a great deal of inter
est to-day was the announcement that J.
Kennedy Tod had resigned from the di
rectorate of the Great Northern railroad,
although he had been elected for a term of
three years. It was said that the Hill-
Morgan interest bought large blocks of
Burlington stock through J. Kennedy Tod
& Co., and that Mr. Tod did not want to
be jut in a position as a director of the
Great Northern of selling to the board or
of buying stock for its account.

The Canadian Pacific Will Build
Bra no lies to Haul Wheat.
Montreal, Que*bec, June 20. — Pre
mier Roblin, of Manitoba, has just
had a long conference with T. G. Shaugh
nessy, president of the Canadian Pacific
railway, and announces that he has ar
ranged for the building of about eight
miles of branch lines in Manitoba for a
cash bonuß -of $76,000 to be paid by the
province. The branches are to be built
to give farmers a chance to market their
grain.
"Never in the history of Manitoba has
there been such an abundant promise of
good crops," said Premier Roblin. "We
have this year 2,000,000 acres in wheat.
We expect to get between 40,000,000 and
60,000,000 bushels."

nadian Part.
Victoria, B. C, June 20.—The Crow's
Nest Southern railway company has signed
.an agreement with the provincial govern
ment to build under Ac terms of the act
passed at the last session of the legisla
ture, the section of the railway in British

Great Northern railway at Jennings,
Mont. Although the company has two

Great Western's Outlook.
SDecial to The Journal.
Sioux City, lowa, June 20.—The Great Wes

the road for which surveys are being made
on behalf of the Great Western. Mr. Mar
ston was here yesterday. In an interview,
he said: "The effort is being made to com-
Dlete the Omaha surveys in a hurry, so that
construction may be,g.n. The Sioux City
surveys will probably not be completed in
time for construction this year. Whether
Ida Grove will be on the Great Western or
not. is a question. We are, however, run
ning a survey from Sac City to Ida Grove,
to determine whether it practicable or not."
Sac City-Lake City Cutoff.
Special to The Journal.
Sioux City, lowa, June 20.—The interesting
information has been received in Sioux City
that the purpose of the new Moville line is
being disclosed by activity along the old sur
vey at Sac City. It is evident that the
North-Western will build a cut-off from Sac
City to Lake City, and will utilize the new
road for its Chicago trains. This will make
a newer and shorter Sioux City-Chicago
route, and will be a great boon to both com
munity and road. A party of right-of-way
men is to-day in Floyd township, this coun
ty, going along the old survey of the North-
Western, and his given some attention to the
Sac City-Lake City cut-off. The survey has
now been made. The line would not be
over thirty-four miles long, and could be
comDleted at the same time as the Moville
extension. Both lines could be completed
in thirty days if construction was rushed on
them.
These lines would give the following route
to Chicago from this point: Sioux City to
Sergeant Bluff, Moville, Kingsley (probably),
Correctionville, Sac City, Lake City, Tama
and then east on the lowa division of the
North-Western main line.

NEGRO SHOT AND KILLED
TRAGEDY AT MERRIAM JUNCTION
William Rißg* Resisted Robbery by
Trumps and Wai Shot
to Death.
Shakopee, Minn., June 20.—William
Riggs (colored), about 45 years of age,
was shot and killed at Merriam Junction,
a lonely spot a few miles south of here.
From testimony brought out at the In
quest conducted by Coroner Hirscb°r.
Riggs, with Jordan Vincent, another col
ored man, entered a box car to sleep.
Later two white men, Pat Feeban anl
Charles White, also entered the car to
secure a r-ght's rest.
During the night three white men, of
whom the leader seemed to be a slight
fellow, apparently about 17 years of age,
commanded the occupants of the car to
step outside, aad proceeded to search
them for money and valuables. The
young fellow was armed with a revolver,
and in a scuffle with Riggs, who resisted
the attempt to search him, the latter was
shot in the abdomen, the bullet penetrat
ing to the spine and cutting the ab
dominal artery. Riggs lived only about
twenty minues. The robbers, who all
wore masks, escaped.
Vincent says that he and Riggs were
from St. Louis and were on their way
back there. It is doubtful if the murder
ers will be captured, as the only way in
which the men robbed can identify them
is by a peculiarity in the voice of one.
