CIVILIAN Herman Beyer Id Ronshly Used at Fort Snelllngr. | There was a fierce fight at Fort Sneiling last night. Herman Beyer, who was at the fort with a picnic crowd,' got into a fight with a soldier and the latter's comrades turned against the civilian. The police had previ ously put young Beyer off the grounds but he had returned. They now tried to hustle him away from his assailants but in the melee they themselves were beaten severely. Beyer had to.be taken to the St. Paul city hospital. Patrolman , Mooncy of the Prior avenue station, fared almost as badly as Beyer. During the fight several women were knocked down and injured. ARRESTED A CONVICT.

THEY'LL BOOM THE FAIR' MINNEAPOLIS BUSINESS MEN" Letters Showing Their Attitude To ward, Minnesota's Great An - nual Exhibition. Minneapolis people are evincing a lively interest in the coming state fair. Not ; long ago Secretary Randall of the Agri cultural association sent out letters to every member of the Commercial Club and to other prominent men of . Minneapolis, outlining the features of the fair of 1901, and requesting the co-operation of the men of Minneapolis in making the fair a success. He has received most cordial and hearty replies. A very few extracts from these letters serve to show the temper of Minneapolis in the fair matter: The Minnesota Moline Plow companylt is the intention. of this bouse to make the finest display that we have ever attempted, and shall endeavor in every way we can to contribute towards making this state fair a success. H. S. Gregg, President of the Minneapolis Iron Store Company— shall be very glad to use my best endeavors to make Minne apolis day at the state fair a success. The only trouble is, I am afraid all the Minne apolitans will want to go down there Monday and hear "Teddy." You certainly deserve the support of the entire state in the work you are doing there. . E. J. —Shall be pleased to aid you and hope you may have "the best ever." L. F. Day, Vice-President and General Manager of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railroad— company will, as heretofore, do everything possible to . make the state fair a success. George C.

Evans of Evans, Munzer, Pickering & Co.—You can count on the "New Store" to do everything in its power for the better ment of the state fair. F. C. Campbell—l will take pleasure in do ing anything in my power. W. M. Hopkins, General Freight Agent of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Road—l assure you of my unabated interest in the state fair. I. believe it is doing a great work for our state, and anything that I con consistently do to contribute to its success, you may be assured I will gladly do. , The A. N. Kellogg Newspaper company expresses its desire to co-operate, as does the McClellan Paper company, Frank W. Greases & Co., G. P. Murphy and others. NEVER MINDTHE WEATHER There Will Be a Big Tent at Walton Park Saturday. Edmund G. Walton has secured an im mense tent to be used at Walton Park Saturday during the auction sale. It will be one of the largest ever seen in this city the dimensions being 100 by 300 feet, and will shelter an immense crowd in any sort of weather. There will be no sides to the tent, the intention being to shield the crowd from the rays of the sun or trom rain. The tent will be high enough to give ample shade without in any way inter fering with the movement of the air. Be neath the canvas will be a number of large arc lights which will give an abundance of light for th° evenine sale. Seats and tables will be provided. Those $5 Ortlcrx. The fun at Lake Harriet Saturday even ing was furious while it lasted. Every body was hunting for the Walton park $5 orders and the interest in the search never flagged until it was announced that the last order was gone. Up and down the front of the pavilion the boys and girls, men and women, marched, asking each other the question: "Have you that W Talton Park order for $5?" And they never wearied of the search. It was 9:30 o'clock before the last of the orders was given away, the hunt having lasted for an hour and a half. Many of the persons who failed to get the orders, failed not because they did not ask the right oerson, but because they failed to use the proper phrase and others failed because they did not ask anyone di rectly for the order. Those who secured the orders were Fred Sanborn, 4 Western avenue; Mrs. A. G. Wallers, 1403 Eighth street S; Blanche Fairbairn, Francis avenue and W Forty-fourth street, and Frank W". Palmer, 224 Eighth street S. Mrs. Wal ters secured two of the orders, and won $10, while each of the others secured $5.

An excellent showing is made by Dairy and Food Commissioner W. W. P. McCon nell in the report he has just submitted, covering the first six months of the year. Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. McCon nell has been in office only five months of that period and that during the other month little was done owing to the lack of funds, the cases handled, and the num ber of analyses made,'compare favorably with any similar period in the history of the department. The commissioner de clares that he has had the co-operation of dealers throughout the 1 state. Many new creameries and cheese factories are being established and those already in operation are rapidly increasing their business. The commissioner declares that the educational butter and cheese contests have been of great advantage. .; :, : ■ Dairy Commissioner McConneil, . in a circular, announces that the next butter and cheese contest will occur July 31 The next exhibit of butter at Buffalo wili be scored Aug. 10.

PATIENTS TO PAY Quarantine Hospital Inmates May- Be Asked to Settle. A DOLLAR-A-DAY RATE PROPOSED Heretofore Patient* Have Not Been l'ajiun Though Many Were Able to Do no. In the past six or eight months proba bly 200 persons have received medical attendance, nursing, bed and board at the luxurious new quarantine hospital. Except in the cases of a very few private patients not one of the persons has of fered to pay for treatment and accommo dations. The smallpox "run" is about over for the season, but Health Commis sioner Hall declares that before another season there will be a different ar rangement in effect at the quarantine hospital. The charter says that the city shall pro vide medical attendance and nursing at the expense of the patient if he is able to pay; if not, then at the expense of the city. It says nothing about sustenance, but the health commissioner believes that that comes within the meaning of the clause. This provision i s taken to apply to the patients housed in the wards. Those who have private rooms pay at the rate of $15 per week.' It is Dr. Hall's idea that there should be a regulation for the quarantine sta tion similar to that at the city hospital. Those who are able to pay for board and treatment should be made to do so. He figures that $1 per day is not an oppres sive tax, and he will recommend to th% board of health that it adopt a regulation to this effect, to be in force after this year. Many of the patients treated at the his pital this year. Dr. Hall declares, were well able to pay for their board and medi cal attendance. In one case a man turned over to the superintendent $1,500 in cash and certified checks for safe keeping. In others it was common for men to have $50 or $100 with them. Many of these were transient lumbermen who probably just a,s soon as they were out of the hos pital proceeded to "blow in" all they had. It is Dr. Hall's idea that the city might better have a share of it in return, for its services. He believes, however ,that it will be a hard task to make smallpox patients come to time in this regard. They will say that they were sent out there against their will and that the city should pay the freight. On the other hand, as Dr. Hall points out, their care and treatment in their own homes, or in a boarding-house, would cost them several times the $7 a week which it is proposed that they pay. TUMBLE IN HEN FRUIT BEAR MARKET IN GOLD FIELDS How the Arrival of a Ship Affected the "Commission Row" Atvay lp North. The arrival of the first boat in the Alaska gold regions knocked the bottom out of the grocery and provision mar ket, says Prank A. Skog, writing to his brother in this city. Eggs dropped in one day from $2 a dozen to 75 cents. Every thing else tumbled proportionately and Mr. Skog gleefully remarks "things have never been so cheap as now. Why, it ia almost like the outside world." That it takes little to please an Alaskan may be guessed by other prices which the writer quotes: Potatoes, 10 cents a pound, oranges $1.50 a dozen, butter 75 cents a pound; etc. Mr. Skog writes that he h&a a claim on Dominion creek near Dawson and that he has taken out a good deal of dirt which runs from 25 cents to $1.15 to the pan. His only trouble is in securing water; Mjfn's Fancy Flannel Suits $5, $7.50, $10. Neat, cool and fashion able. In the new shades of green, gray, light and dark blue, and lighter fancies.

Lake Harriet was like an oasis in the desert to the sweltering multitudes yes terday and they flocked thither by all sorts of conveyances, but principally by the trolley route, which is both cool and quick. The excellent programs provided by the Banda Rossa added greatly to the enjoyment of the relief from the heat at the lake. The audiences both after noon and evening were record-breaking in size and were seemingly greatly de lighted with the music. This is "popular day" at Harriet. This afternoon a popular matinee was given and this evening is popular night with a program made up of the favorites that have caught the public's fancy. There isn't a single heavy or unintelligible num ber on the list and yet the music is by no means cheap or trashy. To-morrow af ternoon the music-lovers have their inn ing and they will listen to a fine Wagner program, the latter half of the list being made up' of classics by other composers. The programs are as follows: MONDAY EVENING—POPULAR NIGHT.

TO PURCHASE ART WINDOWS.. The members of the Minnesota commis sion which had charge of the state's build ing at the Chicago world's fair will probably start a fund for the purchase of the cathe dral glass panels which adorned the build ing. At the close o! the fair they were stored to await the erection of the new capi tal, in which they were to be placed. A storage bill accumulated and the storage company having them sold them to a saloon man. The commission seeks to recover them for the State Historical Society. the Minneapolis journal. LITTLE A WONDER His Magnificent Tennis Play in the Chicago Tournament. HIS GREAT GAME WITH WAIDNER Ward C. Burton of the Ice Yacht Club Talks of It— l'ronperts for 'Tonka Tournament. War 4C. Burton, secretary of the Min netonka Ice Yacht club, returned Satur day from Chicago, where he witnessed the finals in the western tennis tournament. Mr. Burton says that the result of the western championship play places R. D. Little in the very front rank of American tennis players. Said Mr. Burton: It Is thought by those who witnessed the games that Mr. Little will push "Whit man for first place in the national champion ship tournament at Newport. His back court game was extremely steady and accu rate, and his net game was brilliant. In his game with Waidner, in which he won the western tournament, he had his opponent completely at his mercy. While the match in the third set was probably the finest tennis ever seen on the Kenwood courts, even at this time the superiority of Little wbs evident. Minneapolis people may remember Waid ner's fast game in the old days at 'Tonka, and the accuracy of his drives, but at every point of the game in Chicago Little seemed to go him at least one better. Little won his three sets in 6-1, 6-2 and 6-4. The first set was rather tame owing to the fact that Waidner never does win the first set. The second set was practically a repe ; tition of the first. Little's back-hand, cross '■■ court stroke seemed to place his opponent completely at his mercy. When this stroke failed, heavy drives to the side lines won i him point after point. In the third set I Waidner, who had been fighting for the net i positions, seemed to have won his position, and for a while it looked as though he might take the set. But Little, after losing three games, fought for the net position, and after driving Waidner to the back court, won with comparative ease. Collins vs. Little. Saturday, Kreigh Collins played Little and ' while Collins took one set and played an extremely accurate and well judged game, the all-round perfection of Little's play proved irresistible. Collins' winning was looked upon as a certainty by the Chicago players, and though they were disappointed in the result, yet they freely acknowledge Little to be the best player. The Doubles. In the championship for doubles between Little and Alexander and Waidner and Col lins. Little again showed the same brilliant play which had characterized his game In singles. While the western players put up a strong game, the perfect lobbing of Alex ander, combined with the fast play of Little, enabled the eastern men to win quite handi ly. In the third set both Waidner and Col- I lins directed the entire play on Alexander j and by so doing seemed to better their chances, but this was short-lived and the match went to the eastern men. The 'Tonka Tournament. While Little and Alexander will be un able to attend the northwestern tournament which opens July 29 at Lake Minnetonka, it is expected that Waidner and Collins will be here to fight for the championship of the northwest. This week the other prominent players who played at Chicago and will be seen here, will play at Cincinnati. Mr. Burton says that all of the big players are greatly interested in the 'Tonka tournament, and are anxious to get back to the courts which their pres ence has made famous in the past. Little personally expressed regret at his in ability, owing to conflicting dates, to be here at the appointed time. The Yacht club committee on arrange ments is now busy with ptans for the en tertainment of the visitors during tennis week. There will be a change of bill ■every night, and it will probably be the gayest week of the season at the lake. HOMING PIGEONS ARRIVE First of the Sixteen Liberated at Madison, Neb. Of the sixteen homing pigeons liber ated Sunday morning at Madison, Neb., booked for a 300-mile fly to Minneapolis, only two have yet reported at the home lofts. A bird belonging to J. H. Barton got in late last night and "Black Elder," owned by Fred May got in at 9 o'clock tbis morning. The station agent at Mad ison had orders to release the birds, at 5 o'clock a. m. yesterday, but for some rea son did not "let go" until five hours after the appointed time. According to pigeon fanciers, yester day was a bad day for the birds. As the birds will not fly at night, there is no telling what time they might get In to-day. The birds belonged to the lofts of Fred May, J. H. Barton, C. C. Austin and August Felger. WON'T STOP GOLF Travel Over Laurel Avenue Bridge Not to Be Stopped. City Engineer Sublette says there is no cause for alarm on the part of Bryn Mawr golfers because of the threatened cessation of street car traffic to Bryn Mawr on account of repairs on the Laurel ave nue bridge. He announces that the work on the bridge can be completed within ten days. Should the work threaten to incon venience Bryn Mawr people for even a week, Mr. Sublette will obligingly con sent to a postponement until fall. The match game scheduled for last Saturday between the odds and evens at Bryn Mawr was postponed on acocunt of the heat. Fifteen players showed up and did a lit tle practice work. The game next Saturday at Bryn Mawr with the Minikahda team is being await ed with a great deal of interest by mem bers of both clubs. The Minikahdans are a trifle "chesty" after their first victory Saturday at Minnetonka, following as it did on a long list of defeats. They have taken new heart and may reverse the ta bles on the Bryn Mawr team in return play. Will Ride to Winnipeg. R, H. Dunbar and B. B. Bird, both of St. Paul, will undertake to ride from St. Paul to Winnipeg in four days. They will leave St. Paul on July 22. The distance is more than 400 miles by -wheel, and the two expect to reach Winnipeg in time for the opening of the annual Manitoba fair. Local Amateurs.

Miller of Ortonville in the Race for Bank Examinership. HIS FRIENDS ARE CONFIDENT They Say He Ha* Cinched the Sup port of Financial and Political Interest*. The time is not far distant for the ap pointment of the state's public examiner. It may be made any time between now and the first of the year. Interest in creases in the contest for the place day by day. Several candidates have been an nounced. There is one, however, who has not "shown his hand" until the present time—that is who has not talked much of the strength of his position, though it has been known that he was in the field for the place. This is E. J. Miller of Orton ville. Mr. Miller's friends do not see how he can fail of securing the appointment. They say that he has already lined up in his support practically all of the "in fluence" of the state, except that which would as a foregone conclusion go to others, and, therefore, be useless to go after. They begin with the proposition that Mr. Miller is especially qualified for the place, having served for eight years as cashier of the Bank of Ortonville and six years as county auditor of Big Stone county, during a portion of the latter period having acted as an advisor of the bank of which he had been cashier. Mr. Miller's friends point with considerable pride to his record In both positions. Through his services in the bank, Mr. Miller extended his circle of acquaint ances, so that now he comes into the race for the place of bank examiner with the indorsement of bankers from over seventy of the counties of the state. Many of these are in the form of petitions from the various counties of the state containing from one to a dozen signatures of bank ing institutions and officials. Not satisfied with this outside support, Mr. Miller has invaded Minneapolis and here has obtained the indorsement of all of the banks of the city except three, two of which are national banks and not specially interested in the contest except indirectly through their relations with the £.tate banks of the city and the state. In addition to the bank indorsements there are on Mr. Miller's petitions the names of the officials of a number of other financial institutions, trust companies, etc. The friends of Mr. Miller say that this all ought to satisfy the governor as to their candidate's backing among the financial interests of the state. If more were needed, they say, there are large num bers of private letters also indorsing Mr. Miller. Aside from the above, Mr. Miller's friends show with some pride his petitions from the county officers of the state end assert that they contain the names of fully 80 per cent of said officers. Along with rhese, Mr. Miller has the indorsement of the County Auditors' association of the state and those of State Auditor Dunn and Lieutenant Governor Smith. Another interesting petition for its weight, say Mr. Miller's friends, Is that signed by all of the members of the legislature from the seventh congressional district. Con gressman Eddy stands by Mr. Miller, also E. E. Adams, of Fergus Falls, and W. G. Valentine of Breckenridge. And that isn't all, they say; support is still coming the way of their man and will continue to do so until Governor Van Sant names his man. Mr. Miller's array of support certainly lends interest to the fight and will be likely to create a stir among others who are after the appointment. A WIDELY LOVED TEACHER Miss Potter's Death Will Cause Sor " . , row to Many. The death of Miss Electa M. Potter which took . place yesterday afternoon at 1827!

LAMONT FOR PRESIDENT MR. HILL'S SLATE FOR THE N. P. It Is Said to Be Headed by the For- mer Secretary of . ■ War. • ■ ■ ■ . The belief that C. S. Mellen will re tire from the presidency of the Northern Pacific railroad at an early date will not down. The latest varia/tlon in connec tion with this belief is that Daniel La mont, former secretary of war, is to succeed Mr. Mellen ealy in August. Mr. Mellen sums hia views of this report up In the one sentence: "There is abso lutely no truth in that report." The fol lowing is the story as it comes from Chi cago: Daniel Lamont, former secretary of war, will become president of the Northern Pa cific railway early in August, unless James J. Hill changes his plans within the next two weeks. In tendering Lamont the presidency Mr. Hill is said to be redeeming a promise made to Lamont in 1897. At that time Hill expected that he would be able to keep his promise. Hill's plans, to his and La mont's great disappointment, were frustrated by the Mellen interest. The day Hill is in control of the road he will force the re tirement of Mellen. That Mellen will leave the road has been ascertained upon good authority. It is also stated that the Northern Pacific slate has been made up and will go through without a hitch. It is further ascertained that Hill would have preferred to make his son, Lewis Hill, head of the road, but that he finally decided to redeem his promise to Lamont. Confirmatory evidence of the break between Hill and Mellen was received when the an- nouncement was made of the resignation of E. H. McHenry, chief engineer of the com pany. It is understood that W. L. Darling, an other Hill man, will be made chief engineer, to succeed McHenry. Charles Banger Mellen has been president of the Northern Pacific since Sept. 1, 1897, when he left the position of second vice president of the New York, New Haven & Hartford. It is intimated that it Is Hill's purpose to make the Northern Pacific play second fiddle to the Great Northern, and that Mellen's at tempt to thwart this purpose is ending in his retirement. ! . AN EXPERT'S VIEWS ".■■: ■';•■;::< ■ ?•■■-,' '• ' ■ Railroad Commission Engages Civil Engineer to Go Over Ore Roads. The state railroad commission has en gaged W. D. Taylor of Chicago, an en gineering expert, to go over the iron ore roads, investigate thoroughly their con struction, examine into the nature of their equipment and submit to the com mission an exhaustive report upon their probable worth.

FRASER RIVER STRIKE AS SEEN BY JOSEPH KILDALL He Thinks tlie Fishermen Are En titled to Their Demands— Prices May Advance. "The strike on the Fraser river is still on," said Joseph Kildall of the Pacific Coast & Norway Packing company, who returned last evening from a two-months' trip to Puget sound and the Alaskan country. "I see no indication of its im mediate settlement. The fishermen, of whom there are about 2,000, demand 12ft cents for their catch, while the canning companies will pay but 10 cents. In my opinion, and I speak from the standpoint of the canning companies, I think that the demands of the fishermen should be ac ceeded to. At 12% cents the canners are getting their fish cheap enough. The sit uation at present is that the entire Fraser river is tied up and about twenty to twenty-five canneries are practically idle. There is a tendency at Pacific coast points to raise the price on salmon, and none of the packers are anxious to sell at pres ent prices. The present season's catch will not be nearly as large as expected." The Pacific Coast & Norway Packing company now has a car of canned salmon on the track in this city, the first new fish brought to this market. The company employs about 150 to 200 men, and expecta to pack not less than 25,000 case 3of sal mon this season, beside several thousand barrels of salt fish. Rapid Ore Shipment, Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., July 15.—The fact that or ders were given, a few days ago, to increase the ore shipments from Fayal mine, Mesaba range, by 200 car-loads daily, brings to mind that, twelve years ago, total daily shipments from Minnesota, from all mines, were about 190 to 200 cars. And cars then had an aver age capacity of about twenty tons; now more than thirty. The Fayal is now shipping 500 car-loads of ore daily, more than 15,000 tons, or 90,000 tons weekly. This is by several thousand tons the greatest dally shipment ever mada by any mine of any mineral in the history of mining. Fayal's shipments this year will be in the neighborhood of 1,500,000 gross tons. Walton Park. Information bureau, 25 Sixth street S. Call any time, day or evening; open till 10 p. m.
