Special to The Journal. Cumberland, "Wis., Sept. 9.—Charles Denmark, a young farmer living mar this city, met a horrible death while on his way home from town last night. He had been drinking, aud his team wandered from the road and finally went off the end of a bridge. Man, team, wagon and a load of lumber were piled up in a sick ening heap. Denmark must have been in stantly killed for the wagon and lumber were piled on top of him and. his body was crushed frightfully. One of the horses was killed. No one saw or heard anything of the accident until 10 o'clock this morn ing. Denmark was about 30 years old, single, and a hard drinker.

(lusher Reported in the Sour Lake District, near the Sara toga's 50-Acre Tract. The Guffey -well, which has been drill ing about on® mile northwest of Sour ]>ake, has developed oil in gusher quanti ty, which Is the leading fact in the Texas oil news to-day. The extent of this strike is not known exactly, because of the reticence of the Guffey people and the fact that they tried to keep the well from gushing; until they could drill deeper. It would seem, however, that they are about down on cap rock, and a district as rich in oil as Spindle Top may be developed here. The Saratoga company has two pieces of ground near this new gusher field, one is in the James Blythe league and the other, the Mary Smith survey. These holdings may prove even more valuable than had been supposed and may make the Saratoga company one of the richest in the Texas oil field. The Saratoga well on Spindle top is In the rock and making slow but constant progress. It is likely to get through this rock et any time and after that some in soon—almost any day. Saratoga stock is selling to-day faster than at any time within the past two months. It is considered a safe invest ment, and one which will bring large re turns. Tb«iß company is practically able io guarantee a gusher, as its well is sur rounded on four sides by large gushers and in absolutely proven oil land.

MANY IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED The Director** Meet and Discuss a • Pew of Them— Sheep Barn to Go lit at Once. Rain late Saturday interfered with the attendance at the fair. The week's total footed up 185,584. The following figures show the com parative attendance during the years I'JOO add 1901: 1901 1900 | Monday 25,513 11,447 i Tuuesday 29.125 13,367 j Wednesday J5.509 33,430 I Thursday 43.321 43,224 Friday 38,931 25,485 Saturday 10,185 9,:J21 Total 185,584 136.279 A pleasing feature was that there were 22,109 railroad coupons taken at the gates, 6.599 more than last year, showing an in crease of almost 50 per cent in the num ber of people from outside the twin cities I attending the fair. As the Milwaukee and Northern Pacific roads did not sell coupons, and many from outside did not secure coupon tickets, the total does not represent all the outside visitors. Secretary Randall estimates the total receipts of the fair at $125,000, which is ?20,000 more than last year, when there was a balance on hand of $18,285.61. The racing purses were paid each night dur ing the fair, and the awards in the live stock and poultry departments have all been paid. The awards in the agricultural and women's departments will be settled as soou as the books can be made up. The board of fair managers held a meet ing yesterday morning and discussed needed improvements at the grounds. The members decided that a machinery hall, a power and light plant, a permanent live stock pavilion, an addition to the grand stand, additional live stock barns and a new fence at the western ends of the grounds were necessary. The necessity for a sheep barn was so evident, part of the exhibitors having to be contented with temporary outside pens, that the sec retary was instructed to have a large sheep barn built this fall. Work will be commenced on the building this week. Practically all the live stock exhibits had been removed before last night. The noisy midway was a quiet waste enliv ened only by drays hauling tents or coun ters from off the grounds. The buildings were all dismantled and only a few pieces of heavy, red farm machinery, that will be removed during the week, remained to tell of the fair. KMPTY POCKETBOOKS Many Found on State lair Grounds Rifled by Pickpocket*. Pickpockets reaped a rich harvest at the state fair last week. Many empty pocket books are now in the possession of Cap tain Hart of the state fair police, and there are others awaiting owners at police headquarters in both cities. It is esti mated that not less than $15,000 was taken in the aggregate. The Minneapolis police say that the state fair management made a mistake in not taking several of the best men from the detective forces of the two cities to watch things inside the fair. FELL LIKE A PALL News of the President's Shooting on Pan-Am. Expo Crowd. GROUNDS QUICKLY DESERTED C. T. Thompson, Who Was on the Grounds, Tells What He Saw. The spectacle of a city of 75,000 souls deserted within two hours was presented at Buffalo, following the attack upon President McKinley, Friday afternoon. The attendance at the Pan-American Ex position that day was unusually large. According to C. T. Thompson, who was on the grounds at the time of the Bhoot ing, 75,000 is a conservative estimate, yet the crowd poured out of the exposition gates until only a handful of people were left, every one being anxious to get away from the scene of the murderous assault. Mr. Thompson is a member of the firm of Keith, Evans, Thompson & Pairchild, attorneys. He returned from Buffalo yes terday. When seen this morning he said: "I got into Buffalo from New York at 2:30, Friday, and reached the exposition grounds shortly before 4 o'clock. I entered by the gate which opens onto the Midway, and was strolling up the Btreet when 1 saw the crowd begin to run toward the Temple of Music. A moment later I heard that the president had been shot. At first many people thought the report was a hoax, but when they came to re alize its truth, indignation was wonder ful to see. If there had been a leader present the assassin would never have gone forth from the exposition grounds alive. "However, the stunning force of the blow was in his favor and the police had hurried him into a carriage and away to Buffalo before the crowd had come to a thorough realization of his crime. "I never saw news travel so quickly. Within five minutes everyone within the vast limits of the grounds knew that an assault had been made upon the presi dent The first report was that he had been shot in the temple and was dead. That probably arose through someone's saying that he had been shot in the Tem ple of Music, the last two words being lost as the information was passed from man to man. "I did not myself see the shooting and when I reached the scene of the crime both the president and his assailant had been hurried away. The crowd was very angry, but it was an anger tempered by regret and pity. There was no speech making and no disorderly demonstration. "By 6 o'clock the grounds were practi cally deserted. Many did not content themselves with leaving the grounds only, but left Buffalo as well. I myself took an evening train for home, although I had arrived in the city on that very day and had expected to remain for some time. All the outgoing trains were crowded, and I suppose the exodus continued on the fol lowing day." FIRED HIS CUSTOMER A Barber Who Didn't Like ( zolgosz ■ 5 f . Sympathisers. ■ . ' ■ William Morgan, a barber, in conversation with, a customer, could hardly believe his ears when the latter expressed the opinion that shooting would be good enough for all rulers. Morgan asked his customer if he meant to say that he would be glad if the president would die, and received a prompt affirmative. Not less prompt, however, was the treatment ad ministered by the barber. Having slapped the man's face, he grasped his coat collar, hoisted him out of the chair and threw him out upon the sidewalk. The victim is very angry and threatens revenge in the courts. Catch the Right Train.

Commander, Ne. l Washington avenue 3. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. ST. PAUL'S FAT OFFICES The Saint's Hold on Federal Jobs—Twice as Many as Min neapolis—Salaries Treble—Little for the Country. While old St. Paul may be a little rusty in some respects, it is now as vigorous and successful aa ever in eorraling the major portion of the good public offices, both state and national. With the excep tion of those politicians whose business it is to remember who holds all the good offices very few people in Minnesota are aware of what a large number of federal officeholder's are to be accredited to St. Paul. The accompanying lists of federal of ficeholders, arranged . according to resi dence in Minneapolis, St. Paul or the state at large, presents both graphically and in detail the disproportionate amount of of fice holding St. Paul enjoys. From the^e lists it appears that St. Paul with about one-eleventh of the population of the state has one-third of the federal offices. The state outside of St. Paul and Min neapolis with four-fifths of the popula tion has only one-half of • the places. In the matter of total salaries St. Paul does even better than in respect to the number of jobs. The places held by her 1 citizens yieW about $80,000 or one-third of the whole sum paid in salaries to the officials figuring in these lists. The state at large with nine times the population of St. Paul and four-fifths of the entire population of the state, gets less than one-half of the whole salary sum. Only a Part. But even these figures do not tell the whole of the story. The employes of the war department in St. Paul in the quar termaster's and United States engineer's offices constitute a small army in them selves and will swell the St. Paul federal I salary list to more than $100,000, count j ing in only those employes appointed I from St. Paul. But as many of these po sitions are not strictly within the realm of the politicians though some of them are bagged through influence, they are not given in detail in the accompanying lists. Yet they should be taken into some ac count when geographical distribution is being considered in the placing of other j offices. Other parts of the state have offices that are to be considered in a similar way, but neither the government work at Duluth nor on the Mississippi river at and above Minneapolis require anywhere near such a payroll as do those officials in St. Paul who are not included in the list. Moreover, in the various government departments, at Washington and else where, positions which do not appear in the list at all, because now in the classi fied civil service, St. Paul has mort! than its share of good places and good salaries. There are at least a hundred Minnesota people employed in these permanent tenure positions and St. Paul is in evidence all the way through the list. In the accompanying lists a few of the minor fee officials are omitted and here and there may be found, now and then, an error in names, but they faithfully show the preponderance of St. Paul in the holding of offices which are filled in re ward of political servioe. So far as pos sible no officeholder is given in the fol lowing list if he is not a republican. For that reason the name of United States District Judge William Lochren does not appear in the list of offices charged to Minneapolis. As the republican politicians of St. Paul, with characteristic rapacity, are al ready clamoring for the district attorney ship succession, the following lists can be studied with profit bf^those of both Min neapolis and the state at large, who have -not felt disposed to make strenuous ob jection to this .latest'exhibition of greed by people "who are fond of using the words "hoggish" and "porcine" In their refer ences to Minneapolis: Minneapolis.

LOW RAILROAD RATES DID II Volume ofßuaineaa Done Daring- the Week. 4O Per" Cent in Excess* of Last Year's Pair. Minneapolis wholesalers want state fair rates applied to the largest possible territory next year. The results this year have been surprising. The fair and the low railway rates brought buyers here from territory never represented on the Minneapolis buyers' list before. The total number of buyers and the volume of business done during the week was 40 per cent larger than the high-water record of last year. State fair week demonstrated that in several lines lowa regards Minneapolis as one of its best markets. Of the tiso buy ers who visited one of the big Minneapolis houses 205 came from lowa. This is a wonderful increase over five years ago. It demonstrates that the Minneapolis job bers are making a successful invasion of lowa territory. The railroads made an earnest effort to enlist the interest of lowa people in the fair, and the jobbers were greatly benefited. The number of buyers from Minnesota and the Dakotas was large. Wyoming contributed twice as many as in former years. Idaho sent several, and for the first time in the history of the state fair buyers came from Washington and Ore gon. It is believed that an extension of the low rate over additional territory, together with enlarging the scope of the state fair, will make Minneapolis a great Mecca among western buyers. Railroad men believe that the Minne sota state fair has a great future. The ttlea of making it a great northwestern exposition is popular among the traffic men. They realize that the merchants from lowa to the coast are becoming in terested in It more every year. The traf fic Incident to the fair saw a big increase on all roads this year. General Passen ger Agent Callaway of the Soo Is one of the men who believes that the Minnesota fair is now in a position to become one of the big permanent expositions of the west. • WOX'T SELL.
