IS BEING COOKED IP Former Bill to Be Modified So aa to Remove Objections Thereto. Mew York Sun Spmolal Smrvlom Washington, Oct. 1. —A new ship subsidy Dill will be introduced in the senate early in the next session of congress. It will differ from the one which Senators Frye and Hanna made strenuous efforts to have passed last winter. What the differences are to be are to be determined between this time and December, but it is de termined they shall not alter the bill in any radical manner. Some efforts will be made, however, to make the new meas ure acceptable to those who opposed the old one. The adherents of the ship sub sidy purpose beginning early in bringing the issue to the front at the coming ses sion. One of the most Important questions pertaining- to the new bill which will come before the Boston conference on Wednesday centers around the proposition to pay subsidies to foreign-built ships now owned wholly or in major part by Amer icans. It will be recalled that it was against this provision of the old bill that the greatest hostility was shown at the last session of congress and it is under stood the object of the conference at Bos ton will be to so frame this paragraph as to not excite the same dangerous oppo sition. The question of shortening the period of the operation of the subsidy law from the twenty years, as was proposed in the old bill, to about twelve or fifteen years will also be considered.

Butler, for twenty years custodian of the alcoves in the society library of New York city, committed suicide by taking carbolic acid yesterday in her cotage at Neligh, Neb. She returned from New York to Neligh, her childhood home, last spring and bought a modest property with the view of ending her life in the town where her parents had struggled in the early days. The lonesomeness of the prairies had a depressing effect upon her, however, and she soon showed evidence of mental derangement. WILL CRUSH REBELS President's Blood Stirred by Co. C Disaster. REBEL FORCES TO BE DESTROYED Additional Troop* Are to Be I'ur nislicii tjeii. llu^h.-s for Samar Island. Mow Yoi-k Sun B*aai*l Sarvlcm Washington, Oct. I.—lf there ever was any doubt .as to President Roosevelt's policy toward the Philippines, the prac- j tical annihilation of Company C has swept | it aside. To callers Mr. Roosevelt has spoken in no unmistakable terms of his determination to pursue the policy of his i predecessor and effect the suppression of j the rebellion in the Philippine archipel ago. ''This declaration applies to Samar as well as to the other islands. , By rea son of the necessity of taking action j which will counterbalance the reverse suffered near Balangiga, immediate mili tary operations will be directed to the destruction of all rebel forces In Samar. I President Roosevelt is not disposed to in terfere in the situation until he knows all about it. Acting Secretary of War Sanger cabled to General Chaffee commending his pur pose to make a thorough investigation and directing him to not only report the I result of the inquiry, but to furnish the j department with a full description of the military situation in Samar. There are j between 2,000 and 3,000 troops in Samar. : These will be sufficient for action at pres- J ent, but not for effecting the pacification j of the island. It will, therefore, be neces sary for General Chaffee to supply Gen eral Hughes with additional troops. These must come from Luzon if they can be spared. Quiet prevails in Luzon, but the presence of troops is necessary to keep the natives under control. The war department understands that there has been recently an increase of secret societies in Luzon, indicating that the Filipinos are still seditious. The au j thorities are not disposed to send addi tional troops from the United States, in view of the general intention to reduce j the military within the next year. If more '■ men are needed, however., President Roosevelt will undoubtedly send them. There will be no hesitation about it. SCHOOLS KEEP THEM Shortage of Good German Teachers in German Milnnukvi 1. Special to The Journal. Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. —Teachers of German are scarce in Milwaukee. They get married too quickly. Even this Ger man-American metropolis—this Berlin 11. —cannot supply the demand by the public schools for instructors in the Teutonic tongue. Superintendent A. B. Abrams of the department of instruction in German, | said to-day that there was not a single j teacher of German available for positions | which might at any time be vacated by death or resignation of members of the present force of instructors. • ■>..' "Four new schools will be opened before long," said Superintendent Abrams to day "and at present there is not a single available applicant for the position of teacher in German. Besides that, there are the usual exigencies caused by res ignation or death. I expect a few va cancies before long. There must be some thing particularly attractive about teach ers of German, because they get married off so quickly that we cannot keep up the supply. I think there have been a dozen married this year." CROWE BAGGED AGAIN Story From Connecticut That I* Donbted at Omaha. XTew York Sun Special Xtsrviee. ' : '•'• New Haven, Conn., Oct. I. —Pat Crowe was arrested at Plainfleld Junction last night as he came along on a freight train. The arrest was made by Deputy Sheriff George Bllven of Central Village. He is supposed to have gone to Willimantic with the prisoner. Special to The Journal. Omaha, Neb., Oct. I.—E. A. Cudahy has not beeu informed of the arrest of Pat Crowe, but says the offer of $25,000 still stands. A similar reward offered by the city has been withdrawn. Chief of Police Donohue discredits the story from Con necticut and says men are being arrested almost every day in some state or other under the supposition that they are Pat Crowe." CHINA'S INDEMNITY Method of Collecting That Some I'imci'H Disapprove. A'mc York Sun Special Service. Peking, Oct. I.—There is increasing op position, especially on the part of the British and Dutch ministers, to the plan of the Chinese to send commissioners to the various Chinese colonies throughout the world to collect funds to aid in pay ing the indemnity to the foreign powers. Five of the ministers chiefly concerned have apparently disposed of the matter by stating, in reply to Li Hung Chang's request that they issue passports to the commanders, that they have not the power to isue the documents except to citizens of the countries they represent. There is a justifyable suspicion that the scheme involves blackmail and persecution in the future, when the information gained by the commissioners would enable corrupt authorities to force endless contributions. BATTLE AT HARVARD Sophomore* and Freshmen Fight an Their Fathers Did. Aeic York Sun Special Servie* Cambridge, Mass., Oct. I.—Bloody noses, swollen eyes and white faces, they were all eeen at Harvard last night. It was bloody Monday and the thousand or more students who took 'part in It were care ful to make it one of the bloodiest that has occurred in the history of Harvard. (For two hours the waving, seething, boil ing mass of men staggered to and fro, fighting it out along the lines their fath ers fought and bearing blow and shock without whimper or groan. Hats were pulled off, shoes parted company with their owners and coats, trousers, neck ties and shirts were torn to shreds. The sophomores were fewer in numbers than the freshmen, but they used their heads to better advantage. HUNTER ACCIDENTALLY KILLE.D. Special to The Journal. Elysian, Miun., Oct. I.—David PfalzgraU was killed yesterday while hunting with a neighbor, Robert Rosenau, north of Elysian. A 22-caliber rifle was accidentally discharged by Rosenau, the bullet entering the ekull of Pfalzgraff. Coroner Justice was on the scene before the boy died.

Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Oct. 1. —There are some strange features to the timber market here and to the position of head-of-the-lake lumbermen. During the past season from time to time timber tracts favorably lo cated for sawing at Duluth or Superior have been sold to men keated further away and whose logging costs for the logs must be in excess of those that would be met if the logs were brought here. Still it has been the fact time and again fhat the more distant logger has been able to pay a price for the timber that the Duluth man has not seen his way clear to of fer, and many millions of feet have been 1 sold for mills some distance off that must fairly go around Duluth to get to the saws. Duluth lumberman see this con dition and a few days ago W. C. McClure, of Mitchell & McClure, came out in a statement in which he said that the pres ent year will be the biggest in the history of the local lumber industry and that in the future it will decline in importance. "Our firm," he said, "will never cut within 20,000,000 feet as much as we are | cutting thi3 year." He spoke of the pur i chase of timber by mills some distance | away, all round Duluth, and then re ferred to the log rates of the roads to the north, which he thought were unnecessar ily high. He thought that at the present discrimination between the rates on logs and lumber on the lines to the north that small millfc would be fostered and the logging traffic to Duluth would decline. Prices the west is paying fbr thin sawn lumber ore better than lumbermen here can get out of the trees, sawing them as the eastern market demands. All the lo cal lumbermen see this condition and N-none of thrai have any remedy at hand, ex | cept for the east to pay on a higher basis for western lumber, and this is a mat ter entirely within the province of the eastern, buyer. If he cannot get lumber less elsewhere, he will be forced to pay more and will pay it here or elsewhere, but if he can buy in other markets at the present proportionate price, he will not compete with the west for the timber" around the head of Lake Superior and the future of Duluth-Superior as a milling center will be brief. Fin lit i nu. Smallpox. The state board of health of Wisconsin has begun the fumigation and disinfection i of logging camps belonging to the Musser | Sauntry company near Gordon, and of j those of others elsewhere in the vicinity, i and will proceed to stamp out the remain ing vestiges of smallpox as thoroughly as may be. -This is the first time the state board has undertaken such work. The Duluth & Iron Range road has built a new style of logging car that can be set upon standard ore trucks, thus utilizing in the winter months for logs part of the standard equipment of the read that has heretofore been valuable only for a special traffic and has been useless five months of the year. Many of these cars will be built as the experimental one is proving a success. The Swan River Logging company, a branch of the Eastern Minnesota road and formerly a Wright & Davis concern, has moved its headquarters to Hibbing. It is one of the largest lumbering concerns in the northwest. Logging RoadN Projected. There is much more logging railroad work planned, and the scarcity of men alone prevents still jathers from getting under way. T. B. 'Walker of Minneapolis Is to build a road from a point on the Fosston line near Sheviin to the vicinity of Itasca lake, where he has 200,000,000 feet of timber to take to his Bemidjl and Akeley mills. Some fourteen miles north of Bemidji the old logging road of Hal vorsen, Richards & Co. will join the Min nesota & International, and there the town of Farley is being platted. It will be the center of a vast lumbering industry, for several hundred million feet of logs will come out. The Minnesota & International is much hindered by the lack of laborers, and the Duluth, Virginia & Rainy River, which is now actually under way, is also in a ba-1 way for men. RI'IXED BY 10XCKSSIVE RAIN Farmera of Day and Brown Lose Much of Their Wheat. Special to The Journal. Aberdeen, S. D., Oct. I.—The rainfall in this part of the state during the month of September, according to departmental reports, was 7.29 inches, and in conse quence threshing has been seriously de layed. In some parts of this county it is estimated that 30 to 50 per cent of the grain is unthreshed and a great part of this has been ruined for any purpose but feeding. In Day county much grain still stands in the fields in shock and is badly sprouted. The delay in threshing has en abled farmers to bring their potatoes to market and large quantities are arriving daily. The price paid by dealers is about 75 cents a bushel, and while the yield is not large, the quality is excellent. Lit tle attention is paid to potato raising here, the crop being planted entirely as an incidental. Answers have been filed by several own ers of land advertised to be sold for taxes under the scavenger law, but in all cases the validity of the taxes is questioned, not the validity of the law or the steps that have been taken under it. Payment on 600 lots in the village of Ordway is re sisted on the ground that the owner, a resident of Chicago, has paid taxes on the land as acreage property. One hundred and thirty-seven cars of live stock passed through this city on Saturday for the Chicago market. "SCAVENGER" TAX LAW Increased Receipts In South Dakota Arc Credited to It. Special to The Journal. Pierre, S. D., Oct. I.—The September tax collections in the state treasurer's office indicate that some force has been at work to bring in money, and it is natural to suppose that the scavenger tax law has been the potent factor. The records show that the collections for September, 1899, amounted to $51,802; for the same month in 1900, the amount received was $47,418, and the receipts for the month this year were $74,209. The filing of certificates of nomination of C. X. Seward for the third circuit and Charles W. Brown for the seventh circuit, places all the republican nominations for circuit judge on file in the office of the secretary of state. No opposition candi dates have yet been presented from the sixth or first circuits, and unless they are put in before the sth, they will be too late to get upon the ballot. WILL. FOLLOW DOWIE Baptist Pastor of Mitchell, S. I)., to Set Oat for "Zion." Special to The Journal. Mltobell, S. D., Oct. I.—Several weeks ago Rev. A. B. Steuernagel, pastor of the Baptist church, tendered his resignation, to take effect Oct. 1, but at'the time de clined to state what his future plans were. In his closing sermon Sunday he announced he would go to Chicago and enter the work of divine healing. He will join the forces of Dr. Dowie, spending part of the time in the city and the rest at Zion. The preacher has great faith in Dowie and asserts that the newspaper stories are absolutely untrue. The cattle from the north and west have commenced to move to eastern mar kew. Mitchell is the gateway for the Big Store. (JL^}(Jj^ Arcade. MAIL ORDERS CAREFULLY FILLED. Wednesday, Shoe Day.

DAMAGE SUIT FOR $50,000 Patriquin Said to Have a Strong Case Au'tiiiiNt the Milwaukee. Special to The Journal. Appleton, Minn., Oct. I.—William Le- Roy Patriquin has begun action against the Milwaukee railway company to recover f50,000 for injuries sustained by falling from a railroad bridge near this city on Sept. 13, and the case will be tried in the court of the twelfth judicial district in November. Patriquin met with his in juries through the negligence of the train crew. Shortly before reaching Appleton on the night of the accident and after the brakeman had called the station, the train came to a full stop, and the young man, thinking he was at the station, attempted to alight and fell nearly thirty feet from the bridge upon which the coach happened to be standing. His spine was injured, resulting in permanent paralysis of the lower portion of his body. Several of the leading physicians of the state have diag nosed his case and all agree that his in juries could hardly be more serious, al though there is a difference of opinion as to whether they will prove fatal in the near future. Miss Hattie Grant and Glen Kingsley, prominent Appleton young people, were •wedded at the bride's home last evening. They are members of two of the oldest and most highly respected families in Swift county. WHERE MILLION'S FIGIRE Xew Companies Organised Under South Dakota Laws. Special to The Journal. Pierre, S.

The disease seems to be in a milder form than usual and all the cases but one have been successfully treated. There was one patient in the Children's Home, but the attack was not serious and no new ones have developed. The numerous cases of check forgeries by a man, who s«ems to have selected Rome, N. V., as his headquarters, resulted in W. O. Olsen of Fargo being caught for a small amount. The forger gave the name of J. D. Howe and claimed to reside in \>*apleton.
