W. Miller Hope* Presidents Will <iive It Up. One of the chief lessons that the North western Miller draws from the attempted assasination of the president is the "utter senselessness of that American institution, the handshaking abomination." The Mill er says: To stand a public man up in a hall and offer him a sacrifice to the pawing propensi ties of 5,000 or more people is not only a ridiculous and absurd form of punishment, but it is dangerous and unhealthy. We hope that Mr. MeKinley will be the last American president to allow himself to be handshaken by a miscellaneous gang of people, among whom the murderer and assassin might eas ily conceal himself, to emerge into damnable distinction at the fatal noment. If we respect and love our president^, ir we wish to see them live out their terms of office in happi ness and safety, let us cease tc expose them in the public pillory to the thousands and thousands of handshakers who desire to get at him. In the language of Beau Brummel, "a glance o£ the eye" will do quite as well as the grasp of an indefinite number of miscel laneous hands, more or less dirty, more or less unwholesome and possibly, as in this in stance, more or less murderous.

Their names will be sent to the central office and will there be entered in a book. When a man asks credit at a store of which he has not previously been a patron his record will be investigated, and if his name appears on the delinquent list he will have to pay cash for every thing he gets. Failure to report bad pay customers is to be made punishable by a fine.

Its Advent to the Dividend-Paying List Certain. ITS TERRITORY SETTLING UP Immigration Continues to Be Great— Earningi 3O Per Cent Abead of Last Year. Soo earnings for the present fiscal year show such a gratifying increase over the same period of last year that it is be lieved the stock will go on the dividend list at the close of the present fiscal year. Up to date, Soo earnings have been 30 per cent better than last year. The big immigration into the northwest last spring greatly benefited the Soo, especially in North Dakota. Much territory through which the Soo passes will yield its first crop this year. In addition to this great ly increased grain acreage there is an excellent yield in ali of the grain country tributary to the road. During the past three weeks the number of land seekers going into Soo territory has greatly increased. The in dications are that the immigration next spring will be one-third larger than that of last spring. The tide has turned toward the Wisconsin lands along the Soo, and the producing acreage in that terri tory will be largely increased. General prosperity is doing much for the Soo, and it is believed that the coming year will see the "long, hard pull" to make the road a dividend payer rewarded. It is now stated that the annual meet- Ing of the Soo stockholders on Sept. 17 will take no action towards retiring the preferred stock or reducing the rate from 7 to 4 per cent. The first proposition is impracticable because there is nothing to take the place of the preferred stock. Bonds of the Soo are issued for construc tion purposes only. On the latter proposi tion the consent of all of the stockholders would be required, and that cannot be obtained. The exact Missouri river terminus of the Soo extension into South Dakota from Wishek has not been determined. What ever route is selected will traverse a country from which it will draw a big grain and stock business. This will also turn a large amount of grain and mer chandise business which now goes to Chi cago, to Minneapolis. Eureka, which is one of the largest primary wheat points in the world, is in this territory. All of the grain from that country and most of the merchandise trade is now captured by Chicago. The Soo will change this mate rially and at the same time add a nice amount annually to its earnings. MADE A COOL THOUSAND BANDA ROSSA CONCERTS PROFIT Tula Will Become the NucleuH of a Public Auditorium Fund. The Banda Rossa concerts held at the exposition during fair week netted about $1,000 for the auditorium fund. A few small Dills are still unpaid, but when everything has 'been straightened up about that amount will be left as profit. W. L. Harris, treasurer of the committee that had the matter in charge, said this morn ing that a detailed account of receipts and expenditures was being prepared, and would be submitted to all those business men who were subscribers to the con cert fund, within a few days. All things considered the band fared very well. There was a multiplicity of attractions both here and in St. Paul dur ing fair week, and the red-coated musi cians certainly got their share of patron age Expenses were heavy, but the profit realized was fully up to expectations. The money will got to form the nucleus of a fund for securing a suitable public audit orium. This project hae been discussed for many years, but the Banda Rossa en gagement was the first practical step looking toward its realization. Other steps will now tie taken to add to the nucleus. A. M. Shuey, upon whom devolved the active management of the concert series, is being congratulated heartily on the suc cees of his efforts. JEWISH NEW YEAR It Begins at Sundown To-morrow Evening-Its Celebration. Saturday is the Jewish New Year and \ will be celebrated by all members of the Jewish religion in this city. Special serv ices will be held at the synagogues, be ginning at sundown, Friday, and continu ing twenty-four hours. According to the Jewish calendar, the earth is 5,662 years old, having been created 3,760 years be fore the Christian era. Rosh Hashanah, or the New Year, is the opening of a season of religious significance, which concludes with Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, on Sept. 23.

The annual report of County Attorney Boardman, which is required by law to be filed with the attorney general, shows that the April term of the district court this year was one of the most prolific in the history of the county with respect to the number of criminal cases brought up for trial and the seriousness of the offenses. The cases of the term aggregated 182; con victions and ideas of guilty were entered in 132; 36 cases were nolled or dismissed, and in the rest convictions were not ob tained. There were only 47 cases up for trial during the January term, and of those 9 were nulled or dismissed, while sentences were obtained in 23 cases.

He found the contract he !had undertaken too big a one and so he quietly laid himself down and died. Mike was a pet chameleon. His owner is employed in a shoe shining establishment. He is a colored gentle man with a fine appreciation of haberdash ery. While at work he kept Mike chained to a safety pin, fastened to his shirtfront. The day that Mike arrived the shirt upon which he was expected to live, move and have his being, was of a vivid red. Now the natural color of a chameleon is green—hence the name, Mike — but the little reptile, chameleon-like, did his best, and soon managed to assume a shade closely approximating the red of the shirt. The next mornning the red shirt was discarded in favor of a blue. Again Mike struggled, and again he came forth tri- BILLIONS OF FEET New Northern Roads Divert Lum- ber to Minnesota. CANADA USED TO GET IT ALL Vnut -"limber Tracts Placed In Close Touch With Local Sunmilln —Logn by Hail. Additional timber to the extent of at least a billion and a half feet has been placed within reach of Minnesota, saw mills by the construction of two 'impor tant logging roads in the northeastern part of the state this year. The Virginia and Rainy Lake road being built by Cook & Turish from Virginia to the Rainy River will make a billion feet of timber available to Minnesota mills which otherwise would be absorbed by the mills on the Canadian side of the boundary. This big belt of timber has been tapped to some extent by the Canadian mills dur ing the past few years. The building of the new road will put them out of the running. The Brooks Timber company announces that it expects to have fifty miles of its new road, the Minnesota & North Wiscon sin, running northeast from Cloquet, com pleted by Jan. 1. This will make an ad ditional half-billion feet of timber avail able to Minnesota lumbermen. Minnesota lumbermen are beginning to prepare for the winter cut of logs, which is estimated at a billion and a half feet. In these operations 10,000 men will be required. While labor is a scarce com modity at present the lumbermen believe that with the close of threshing the labor supply will be ample. One feature of Minnesota lumbering is the gradual disappearance of the s^all owner of timber. Most of the stump&ge of Minnesota is now in the hands of less than ten lumbering concerns. The gradual development of railroad transportation on the long hauls is an other new feature. The Eastern Minne sota, which absorbed the old Swan River logging road, ie doing a good business in the transportation of logs. The Minne sota & International, formerly the Brai nerd & Northern, is extending into the country north of Bemidji, and expects to greatly increase its logging business. T. B. Walker is preparing to take a big slice out of the pine tributary to Bemidji, and is constructing a new logging road from Solway south toward Lake Itasca. Present plans include the cutting of about 400,000,000 feet in the country tributary to Bemidji. Recent operations have pushed the boundary line of the timber farther north until now the great belt can be said to lie above Lake Winnebegashish. It would be a far cry from Minneapolis to this timber if it were not for the rail roads.

On the day following, Mike's owner had a date with his best yellow girl, and he turned up for work resplendent in a shirt that was striped and dotted with all the prismatic splendors of the rainbow. The chameleon wrinkled his skin in disgust. Part of him became red, part blue and part yellow. There was one shade in the shirt, however, that Mike could not emu late. It was a peculiar purple. All day long it worried him, and toward evening he looked himseif over, noted his varie gated appearance and promptly curled up and died. The boys in the shoe shining emporium held an inquest, and decided that their pet had died of overwork. His owner, however, insisted that the chameleon's demise was due to a broken heart. POSER FOR ERWIN Central High School Boy Quotes Constitution of U. S. IT DEFINES TREASON CLEARLY Crime Consists in Levying War Against the United States— . See Article 111. A student in the Central high school has • discovered what he considers an insur mountable objection to the statement of W. W. Erwiu, in which Mr. Erwin holds that Czolgosz's attack upon the president should be considered as treason and pun ished as such. 'Mr. Erwin would be all right," said th* boy, "if it wasn't for one little thing. He forgets that the constitution of the United States defines treason and defines it clearly. When I read what he said last night, I felt sure he was wrong, and so I looked the matter up. Section 111. of article 111. of the constitution reads: " 'Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. " 'The congress shall have power to de clare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corrup tion of blood or forfeiture except during the life of the person attained.' "I guess Mr. Erwin is more familiar with the murder laws than he is with the j constitution of his country," continued the young constitutional lawyer. "That Pole who tried to kill McKinley didn't levy war against the United States, and he didn«C adhere to the enemies of this country. I'd like to see him hung, all right enough; but I don't believe ha has been guilty of treason." COMMON LAW ABROGATED Answer to W. "W. Erwin as to Czol rosb's Puuißhment. The contention of W. W. Erwin that Czolgosz, the would-be assassin of the president, could be punished in New York as a traitor because the common law still applies in the empire state, is dis- j puted by a number of local attorneys. M. C. Brady has investigated the question far enough to feel warranted in declar ing that Mr. Erwin is completely in the wrong as regards the application of com mon law in New York, but at the same time practically agrees with the tall pine in saying that Czolgosz could be punished for treason. Mr. Brady says: The common law, so far as it governs criminal offenses in New York, has long since been abrogated by statute. Section 2 of the penal code of that state is as follows: "No act or' omission begun after the be ginning of the day on which this code takes effect as a law shall be deemed criminal or punishable, except as prescribed or author ized by this code or by some statute of this state not repealed by it." The penal code took effect Dec. 1, 1882. Section 37 of the same code defines treason against the state as follows: "First—Levying war against the people of This state; or, second, a combination of two or more persons by force to usurp the gov ernment of the state, or to overthrow the same, shown by some forcible attempt, made within the state, to accomplish that purpose; or, third, adhering to the enemies of the state while separately engaged in war with a foreign enemy in a case prescribed in the constitution of the United States, or giving to such enemies aid and comfort within the state or elsewhere." The above is the definition of treason as given by the legislature of New York, and it does not require the eye of an expert to determine that it does not cover the assault made upon the president. Section 16 of the New York penal code pro vides as follows: "A person who, being with out the state, causes, procures, aids or abeta another to commit a crime within the state," is guilty of crime punishable within the state. So it will be seen that the law of New York is broad enough to reach all persons outside of the state who abetted in the crime. CANTY ON TREASON The Jadgre Dlscunscn Farther the Cxolgroaz Case. "I do not think congress can declare an assault on the president treason unless such an assault is made in connection with other violence bo extensive as to amount to levying war against the United States." said Judge Thomas Canty, this morning in speaking more in detail on the point as to whether Czolgosz, who at tempted the life of President McKinley can be tried for treason. He adds: The mere advocating of anarchy—the abo lition of ail government—cannot be made a criminal offense at all either by the federal government or the state governments. The federal and state constitutions guarantee free dom of speech and of the press and any "ism" or alleged reform, no matter how ab surd, may be advocated so long as it is not proposed to bring it about by violence. But it may be made a crime to advocate the bringing about of any alleged .reform by vio lence, assassination or war; and there is no doubt of the power of the different state governments to declare such an act a crime, whFihcr the act is directed against the state or naticnal government or the' officers of either. But the national government cannot make exhorting to violence in such cases a crime unless directed against the national government or some of its officers because they are such officers or because they repre sent the government. The exhortation to violence cannot, under the •onstitution, be made treason at all unless then; ia at the time a state of war, and the act of violence, itself, cannot be made trea son unless it amounts to "levying war against the United States, or adhering to their enemies, or giving them comfort." The same provision exists in most of the state consti tutions. But the violence of anarchy will hardly ever rise to the dignity of "levying war," "Say, supposing a street car strikes a cow and kills her; doesn't the company have to remove the cow?" "I'm very sorry indeed, but I really can not tell you," responded the clerk in the most pacific manner. "Well, why in the dickens don't you know?" cried the angry searcher for in formation. "I asked down at police head quarters and they told me to come here. Is there anyone about this building that does know anything?" Neilsen skilfully soothed the angry man and finally sent him to Ernest Wheelock, secretary to the mayor, after assuring him that Wheelock was the individual &aid by the city to know everything. >^v^vvsa^vwVv«u<v-^IJEW ENGLAND s^Wv/v>wwVo^s/^4 rt FRIDAY'S jgjt SPECIALS <^^^^^^^^ 3s T^__^> On Friday we j4JfjP||j^L ' SBP^^^"**^*^ H will sell 50 tf*^^^^^^^^^*^fe - /d^l^v 10.

The congregation of Trinity Norwegian Lutheran church decided at a meeting held last night to seek readmission to the United Norwegian church, from which it seceded ia 1896.
