I \I)KU LAW'S PROTECTION Deputy Sheriffs to Help a Tin Plate Plant It«■ miime. Pittsburg. Sept. 4.—Preparations have been completed for the starting up of the Demmler tin plate plant at MceKesport, j and the resumption probably will take place late this afternoon or to-night. The start will be made with a full force of deputy sheriffs on guard, the American Tin Plate company having served notice on Sheriff McKinley of this (Allegheny) i county that violence was feared. The in troduction of the strong arm of the law into the steel strike will, it is believed, undoubtedly bring about a crisis in the situation. In some quarters it is thought SYERDRUP FOUND BY PEARY Event Said to Have Occurred on the West Coast of Greenland—Faith That Andree Still Lives. Mew York Sun Spoclaf Sorv/ca Gothenburg, Sept. 4.—News has been received here that Peary has found Sver drup, the Swedish explorer, who left for the north pole three years ago on the western coast of Greenland. It is believed that Sverdrup, who sailed in the Fram, the ship that carried Nansen so far north, was unprepared to go around Greenland! The report has caused a great deal of anxiety here among those who hoped that Sverdrup would find Andree somewhere on the east coast of Greenland. Andee's brother resides here, and he believes that hia brother is still alive, not withstanding that it has been over four years since the explorer 1 sailed away in his balloon. Tromsoe. Norway, Sept. 4.—The Russian ice breaker Ermak, has arrived here, the voyage planned from Nova Zembla to the mounth of the Yenisei having been abandoned owing to unbreakable ice barriers. The Ermak discovered on the south east coast of Franz Josef Land several hitherto uncharted islands and mapped the islands of Nova Zembla. Wet Blanket for the Czar Copenhagen, Sept. 4.—The remarkable coolness of the people in regard to the czar's visit continues. This is declared to be undoubtedly due to the Finnish ques tion, Finland being regarded as a part of greater Scandinavia and the Pan-Scandi navian feeling being never more intense than at the present time. The very day that the czar arrved n Danish waters a party of Finnish singers who had been en ihu3iasncally received, departed. It is asserted that the emperor will not visit Copenhagen. Pcavcy Elevator Made Regular Special to The Journal. Chicago, Sept. 4.—The Peavey Grain company's elevator was made regular at the meeting of the board of trade directors yesterday afternoon. The company agreed to furnish a bond and agree with the conditions imposed by the directors. Several minor difficulties had arisen between the directors and the officers of the company, bat u» arrangement has been made and a settlement effected. it may lead to an early settlement, and in others to a conflict. The request for protection was made by Superintendent Lauck and Sheriff McKinley at once made arrangements for dispatching a largo number of deputies to the scene. This will be done this afternoon. President Shaffer will be on hand, or have a trusted assistant at the plant to see that no vio lence is done to strike-breakers and that his men make no demonstration. This morning 400 men went to work in the National Tube works. There was a crowd about the entrance to the plant, but the strikers failed to make good their threat to prevent the men returning, and there was no demonstration. The men who went back to-day ere threaders, ma chinists, carpenters and molders. The furnaces have not been put in operation, but the machinery is running and the men are finishing left-over stock for small, short-time orders. The management said the different departments will be started as fast as the men report for work. At noon it was stated that the Demmler plant would be put in operation to-mor row morning and that fully to-thirds of the old men have signified their inten tion of going back if protection <s given them. There will be from fifty to seven ty-five deputies on guard when resump tion is made. President Shaffer received a telegram from President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor denying the state ments that a committee had been ap pointed to investigate the charges made by Former Vice President Hickey of Mil waukee. The telegram says the report was absolutely without foundation. There was no meeting at Buffalo and he iGom ptrs) was there to deliver a labor day address. At Newcastle, Pa., notices were posted to-day by John Relss, district manager J of the National Steel company's plant at that place, that the mill would resume next week, and those desiring employment should make application. The wages and hours of work will be the same as given the former employes, and any person ac cepting a position will be retained, re gardless of whatever settlement may be made with the former employes of the company. LABOR PROFESSORSHIP Workinarmen to Maintniu a Xevr Chair in Chicago University. Special to The Journal. Chicago, Sept. 4.—Labor men are to es tablish a professorship, at the University of Chicago to teach ethics and moral phil osophy. It Is claimed by those interested that labor has as much right to teach scholar ship as scholarship has to teach labor. This professorship will not be in the pay of the university but will be supported by contributions large and smell from labor men all over the country. British I nlon.i to Appeal. Swansea, Wales.

WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 4, 1901. GOY. YATES FOR "VICE" A Whisper ot Shevlinin This Connection. ILLINOIS FOR "TEDDY" The Governor Makes Direct Over- tures to Roosevelt. MINN. TO HAVE A CANDIDATE Lorimer, Roosevelt's Illinois Boom er, Has Shevlln's Name at Tougoe'i End. From. The Journal Bureau. Soon* dS. Font Building, Washington. Washington, Sept. 4. —Former Congress man William Lorimer of Chicago, one of the republican bosses of Illinois, has per- mitted it to become known during his present stay In Washington that Govern or Yates of Illinois is anxious to be nom inated for vice president in 1904, ami to that end, on the assumption that Roose velt will capture the nomination for the presidency, that Yates has made more or less direct overtures to Roosevelt of a combination Tor the capture of Illinois and other western delegations. Roose velt, it is said, diplomatically declined to enter into any agreement with Yates, but listened to his story. Should Roosevelt be nominated for the presidency his running mate would prob ably come from some western state which announced itself early in the contest. ll linois is likely to be such a state. Lori-', mer was greatly interested in Roosevelt's trip to the twin cities this week. He thinks Minnesota is. as solidly for him as Illinois and will in time "produce a candi date for the vice presidency. At present he does not know who the candidate will be, but has Tom Shevlin on his , tongue's end, because of Shevlin's prominence as a Roosevelt boomer. . v —W. W. : Jermane. AFLAME FOR "TEDDY" j ], All Illinois Republican Factions Are United. Upon Him. New York San Special Servie* , ; Washington, Sept. 4.—Ex-Representative William Lorimer of Chicago has arrived in Washington. He brings astonishing news regarding the political effect of Vice President Roosevelt's recent vlst to Illi nois. ' He says that Colonel Roosevelt . has received such assurances from republican leaders of all factions that vthere can be no doubt that the delegation to the repub lican national convention of, 1904 will be a unit for his nomination for president. Said Mr. Lorimer: \ I have never seen a . larger outpouring of republicans than occurred at Springfield upon the occasion of , Colonel Roosevelt s visit to that city as the guest of Governor Yates, and I never saw greater anxiety than was ex hibited by those who were there to reach the vice president and assure him of their sup port. It was not so much a matter of political expediency or of a desire to get j into the band wagon as it was a spontaneous outburst of sentiment in | bis favor. , It had | been, np- • parent lor a long time that Colonel Roosevelt was popular v ith the | republicans lof Illinois, but I doubt if any one understood the depth of the sentiment in his favor until be visited Springfield.

V -^- - HIS MINNESOTA SPEECH " German Newspapers Promptly Pro ceed to Hare Spasms. Berlin, Sept. 4.—Several papers comment upon Vice ' President *: Roosevelt's speech at the Minnesota state fair regarding the part the United States should play among the great nations. : Says , the Vossische Zeitung: . ■.'.■■-; ~:[„..'-'■ .'.- ""- ."■}, ; One sees how leading American politicians demand an extension jof ■ the | sphere of • power of the United States. r One sees this. purpose more sharply! emphasized lin the opposition offered to European ..influences.

The utterances of the vice president re ferred to are interpreted by. the Vossische. Zeitung to mean that the United States must use their forces against any Ameri can country designing to attack,. and that the Washington government must then again mix itself in * matters which, j ac cording .to international :-;: law, it really should have nothing to do. The Berliner Tageblatt says: , ' V; The speech of the American-vice presi dent is .a; reassertio of ' the > Monroe doctrino in the Jingo sense and shows how widespread in the United States is the chimera of Euro pean powers seeking territorial expansion; in the western hemisphere. . / ; The Lokal Anzeiger says: V ; .

"PIATG". FOR: ODELL " Secretary Root's Brother Prophesies ns to the Empire State. : ' • Saw York Sun Special Srrvic* Carrollton, Mo., Sept. 4. —Dr. Oren Root of Clinton, X. V., a brother of Secretary of War Elihu Root, is a visitor here. Dr. Root has lately been all over the west and in many pieces noticed the western senti- j ment that is being awakened for Roose velt. In regard to this he said: . 7,1"" f : New York will not present Roosevelt's name, but will, on the" other hand, be for B. B. Odell, the present governor of the state. He claims that Roosevelt is out of touch with the New York machine and that he -18 entirely too erratic for the leaders to trust him. He. aeserts that -Platt burled Roosevelt in the vice presidential chair in order to; eliminate him from New York end national politics. He declared the ! men who control New York I are for Ben jamin B. Odell. He said: - - He has made a most excellent governor, surprising not only his friends but his enemies. He acts on all public questions as he thinks best and will turn down a friend as quickly as those opposed to him. He has proved that he is not owned by the machine, but rather owns the machine. Prom what Dr. Root said there is no doubt in his mind that New York will present to the next national republican convention Odell's name as its choice for the nomination for president. He does not think Senator Hanna will try for the place. "TEDDY" IN CHICAGO Relnctantly Declines to Address the Marqoette Club. Chicago, Sept. 4.—Vice President Roose velt passed through Chicago this morn ing on his way east, leaving at 8:30 over the Lake Shore road. A committee from the Marquette Club headed by President William L. Bush met the vice president at the Union station upon his arrival from Minneapolis and tendered him an invitation to address the club on Chi cago Day, Oct. 9. The Invitation was de clined, however, on the ground of press of other engagements. Said Colonel Roosevelt: It would give me genuine pleasure to ad dress the Marquette club, but I positively cannot do it this fall. It would not be square to the others whose invitations I have declined, I have hail over thirty requests to speak in Chicago, and I could not possibly accept your invitation and make an address to which it would be worth your time to listen. Colonel Roosevelt said he had received 2,000 invitations to speak since Jan. 1, and added: You see I am obliged to apportion my speeches so as not to cause too much offense to any one section.

IS HE AN ASPIRANT? Up to Now He Has Enacted the Role of Sphinx. HE MAY HELP ROOSEVELT OUT True Significance of All the South ern Ontburats for Mr. Hanna. Front The Journal Bureau. Koom S3, Pott Building, WaaiUngtoiu Washington, Sept. 4.—Although the re publican national convention is still three years distant one of the most important strokes for securing its control has al ready been accomplished. The southern delegates will, unless the present plans greatly miscarry, be responsive to the nod of Marcus A. Hanna and the group of Republican inner managers of which he is the head. This information comes from excellent sources. Of late several occurrences in southern politics bearing upon this fact have been misunderstood. A speaker In the Virginia republican state convention, for example, proposed Mr. Hanna for the presidency, and the applause which fol lowed was significantly prolonged. From Alabama inklings of a like feeling have recently come to light. Now, this has been construed as indicative of a desire on Mr. Hanna's part to be a presidential can didate, and that his friends were setting up pins accordingly. Such an inference is not warranted. Mr. Hanna has not yet come to regard himself seriously as a presidential candidate, but he does de sire to control the next republican con vention, and he has found so easy a way of doing it that to lay down the sceptre of power already in his grasp would in deed be an extraordinary sacrifice. Mr. Hanna has never "let go" of the organization which he built up in the south for the convention of 1896. His lieutenants have told the colored brethren who principally composed it to keep their ranks intact, to make as few changes as possible, and whenever, from death or other cause, the admission of a new man into their charmed circle is necessary, to see to it, that the new-comer will adhere to the old understanding. These men are told not to worry about the new presi dential candidate, that before the time comes, Mr. Hanna will communicate to them his wishes; they in the meantime retain control of the local organization, and wait developments. This is all that the southern outbursts for Hanna for president have meant; they have been a public recognition of allegiance to him in any form that he may desire it. While waiting for concrete application, the southern organization men cheer for him much as they would for the abstract idea of justice or patriotism, or for an em blematic figure on a monument. But these cheers will be commutable into direct votes for whoever he decides upon for the republican nomination. The southern delegates compose fully one-fourth of a national convention, but they give a strategic strength far greater. The control, in one man's hand, of a block of state conventions which can be sprung from time to time in such a way as most effectively to influence the coun try, is of the utmost value. The country has not ■ forgotten Mr. Orosvenor'a series of predictions in 1896, which did so much to -strengthen-, the hearts of the ; McKinleyites i everywhere. The totals were Vso gratifying I) that few readers went into an j analysis of ; them to .Continued ok 'Second, Pace. , ■- 16 PAGES-FIVE O'CLOCK. SMASH! SMASH!! GO FAIR RECORDS First Three Days of the Fair Give Total of at Least 90,000 Paid Admissions. State and Territorial Pioneers Turn Out in Large Numbers for Their Special Day. Smash, smash went records again at the state fair to-day. The management shortly afternoon were estimating the day's attendance at 35,000 which added to the attendance of yester day and the day before makes in round numbers 90,000. Last year the total for the first three days, when every individual sightseer had been counted, was only 59,249, and that was thought to be large. The grand total of last year's attendance was 118,438, which figure with good weath er ought to be left far behind to-morrow, with two days to spare in which to es tablish a new record. This is State and Territorial Pioneers' Day. Wednesday of last year wa3 St. Paul day. That day the figure was 33,435, which will be below the figure of to-day, when the turnstile totals are added. The crowds began to arrive early. The 9 o'clock cars were jammed to the steps and at 10 o'clock it was necessary to re inforce the crews at the gates. As usual the Minneapolis gate was. getting the big gest share of the work. The railroads took large numbers to the ground. It is estimated that 5,000 were brought in from points north, northwest and west of Minneapolis. The gand stand was packed to the limit : again to-day. It was estimated that the total admitted were about 7,000, while 2,000 that wanted to get inside were re fused admittance. f To-morrow is Livestock and Dairy Day and ought to be a big one, as the.two interests are among the greatest of the. state. The one-mile running race will add greatly to the interest in the racing pro gram. Before 10 o'clock this morning it was evident that it was to be one of the big days of the fair. The crowd appeared to get an earlier start than on either of the preceding days. By noon the number of admissions was far in advance of that of noon yesterday. The fair management believes that the arrangement of special days this year tends to keep up the in terest in the fair all through the week and more evenly distribute the crowds. The attendance from points outside of the twin cities will undoubtedly be larger to day, Thursday and Friday than it was yes terday and the day before. Pioneers Oat in Force. The state and territorial pioneers had their innings to-day and the "old-timers" were out in force. The log cabin, the fair-ground home of the pioneers, was packed from an early hour until late in the day. Every section of the central and southern part of the state was well represented. The officers of the Pioneer's association estimate to-day's meeting to be one of the largest ever held, in spite of the fact that many ol the pioneers are reaching an age where it is difficult for them to attend such gatherings. Throughout the morning the pioneers re newed old acquaintances and exchanged reminiscences. They voted the present fair a wonder and termed it the greatest agri cultural exhibition ever given in the west. Edwin Clarke of Minneapolis, member of the executive committee, was In charge of the arrangements for the day. Among the interesting relicg exhibited by him was a ticket of admission to the first agricultural fair ever held in the territory in 1855, in the days when Hennepin county always had the biggest farmers and the biggest cabbage. The ticket reads: : : : Territorial and Hennepin Co. : : AGRICULTURAL PAIR. : 1855. s : ADMIT BEARER. - • : J. H. Canney, Secy. : Two meetings in -which the pioneers were interested were held during the day. One was an informal meeting of the Pio neer's association held in the institute hall at 2 o'clock. Ex-governor John S. Pillsbury. president of the association, presided. Several short addresses were made and interesting reminiscences re lated. Th«re are 1,800 members in the Minnesota association. The \nrthrop Guards. There was also a meeting during the day of the old Anson Northrop guards, one of the volunteer companies called into the service of the territory when the I EVENTS OF THURSDAY AT THE FAIR I I Live Stock and Dairy Day I ¥ ' ..'.,.' ..-. :'& <£> Morning—lo a. m.—Auction sale of Hereford cattle.

The representation thisi morning was small, but the old vets made up for it in the interest they aroused' by their tales of the early days. Ex-Gov-« ernor Ramsey was present. The Women's Part. The Minnesota Territorial Pioneer** Woman's club contributed to the succese' of the day. The club has a total member ship of about 300, and judging by the war they flocked into the log cabin early ia the day, most of them were present. Mrs. H. E. Hazzard of St. Paul is president. Mrs. Harriet E. Reeves of Minneapolis, secretary, and Miss Carrie Stratton of: Minneapolis, treasurer. During the en tire week they have carried out the ar rangements for the aocoal enjoyment of their members perfectly. On Monday Mrs. Hazzard, Mrs. Hill and Miss Strat ton of Minneapolis were the hostesses. Tuesday the entertainment of guests was in charge of Mrs. Hill, Mrs. North of St. Paul and Mrs. Wurts of St. Paul. To-day the hostesses were Mrs. Harriet B. Reeves, Miss Stratton, and Miss Jennie Foster of Minneapolis, and Mrs. Allen of St. Paul. Mrs. S. A. Adams of St. Paul, who came to Minnesota in the early forties, was one of the visitors. Mrs. Hazzard, of the Woman's club, has been here since '48. The ladies had prepared the home of the pioneers of the day by decorations of flow ers and flags. Mrs. Hazzard pointed out the new curtains and an old-time "Old Glory" as features to be remembered. Relics Were Plenty. This has been a great day for the reli* enthusiast. The old-timers brought man/ interesting mementoes of early days with them. There was a belt and pipe which Hole-in-the-Day, the famous Chippewa chief, had presented to one of the pioneer*. The first cradle in St. Paul, called the Larpeuteur cradle, made its regular an nual appearance along with the Godfrer cradle, first rocked at St. Anthony withla sound of the falls. Edwin Clarke exhib ited a chain brought in by one of the ■, pioneers from Little Falls. This did dutjfct during one of the first lynchings in Min nesota. Three Indians who had com-^j mitted murder were strung up in '57 bj*; a party, at the head of which was Ansoa; Northrop. The chain was buried with thej reds and recovered only last year. This! is its first appearance in public as a his-} torical relic. Former Governor J. S. Pillsbury Is on« of the pioneers who is enthusiastic ovePJ the future of the Minnesota fair. He be-, lieves the state is in shape now to build itself into one of the greatest expositions en the continent. AT THE RACE COURSE The Blk Grand Stand Again Crowded to the Limit. The grand stand was packed again this afternoon with an enthusiastic crowd, to which Minneapolis contributed the major portion. The racing program was good. The matched roadster team exhibition on the half-mile track was a warm competl-. tlon. The Judging of harness horses on the half-mile track followed. The crowd was much interested In tha half-mile running race, as fair crowds always are. The 2:22 pace and the 3:36 trot each brought out a good field of starters. It was another perfect day for the balloon ascension and the crowd gave plenty of testimony to the fact that it wai pleased with the afternoon's fun. The evening crowds are the largest la the history of the fair. To-night tha regular specialties will be given Including the running races, which have proved very popular. There will be changes in tha Tolbert running combination, which Is gir« ing some first-class exhibitions. WHERE HAY IS KIXG Altkln County's Exhibit of Grans**-. Other Conntr Uliplayi.
