27 ' COAL IN N. Y. IS $7.50 A TO N The Bituminous Combine Has Its Back Broken by $2 to $2.50 Coal. Jhe. "Low Prices" Are Now Pretty Certain to Continue Until Summer. New York, Feb. 2.All over town coal will be sold to-day for $7.50 a ton. This Is not a theoretical prico but anthracite can actually be obtained at that figure. It is expected that this rate will hold without much change until summer as it is generally conceded to be the legitimate market price. The high price for soft coal has had Its '" bftck hopelessly broken and the bitumin ous product is selling at anywhere from $2 to $2.50 a ton. This slump effectually disposes of a certain bituminous combine which was forming to maintain the ton price for the coming year in the neigh borhood of $4. THE COST OF COAL How It increased the Death Rate of Chi cago for January. Chicago. Feb. 2.Lack of coal and the general high price of all kinds of fuel are held to be responsible for the big increase in the city death rate, according to the report issued by the health department for the month of January. The increase is 10.4 per cent over the rate for January one year ago and 11.4 per cent greater when compared with the population in 1902. The report says: "This is cited because, in the judgment of the health department the lack of coal ,is the principal, if not the sole cause of the increased death rate. A large pro portion of the excess deaths is, as was stated in the bulletin of Jan. 10, due to cold and exposure caused by the coal famine and which at that date had af fected the health of fully 10 per cent, or nearly 200,000 of the population of the City." GEO.LMATCHANO.K. Senate Confirms His Appointment as Surveyor General of Logs v and Lumber. L. H. Stauff, Who Made Charges Against Matchan, Says He i _ Isn't Through. The appointment of George L. Matchan as surveyor general of logs and lumber for the Minneapolis district was con firmed this morning by the senate. The special committee to consider the charges reported with a simple recommendation that the appointment be confirmed. The report was agreed to and on motion of Senator E. J5. Smith the appointment was confirmed by a viva voce vote. No ob Oeclion was made. Shortly afterward L. H. Stauff of Lake City, who has been pushing the charges against Matchan, arrived and' let loose the Vials of his wrath on the committee. He said: "The thing is not finished it is only just begun. You can't turn me down without a hearing." He protested hotly against the swift ac tion of the committee and said it had only allowed him to outline the charges and had given him no consideration what ever. He prepared a petition which he says he will present to the senate to morrow, demanding a public hearing for his charges. The petition asserts that: "Petitioner is forced to make this request through a sense of public duty and by reason of the fact that the committee ap pointed by your honorable body to hear these charges unreasonably restricted the scope of the inquiry." It proceeds in most violent terms to de nounce Matchan as a man unfit to hold public office. The members of the special committee SKp'ain that they found all the charges fiad been considered by the governor be fore making the appointment, and that they did not consider the charges sus v tained by the facts. THREE DAMAGE SUITS Weare Commission Company Not Out of the Woods. Epecial to The Journal. Sioux City, Iowa, Feb. 2.The McNeil Grain company will file in Chicago an ad ditional suit for damages against the Weare Commission company of Chicago in which judgment for $50,000 will be asked. Damage suits for the same amounut have been filed by Benjamin Jolley, clerk in the Weare company's office, and H. C. McNeil. The three suits, whose claims approximate $150,000, grew out of the ar rest of McNeil and Jolley on charges of conspiracy to defraud. FIRST CECIL RHODES SCHOLARSHIP. New York, Feb. 2.The first Cecil Rhodes scholarship In Oxford, awarded to an American has been given to Eugene Heitler Lehman, a Yale graduate of the class of 1902. He is the eon of the late Moritz Lehman, a wholesale to bacco dealer of Pueblo, Col. After graduating Inst June, Lehman took a graduate course in philosophy in Columbia. Last December he made application to Governor Orman, of Colo rado, who had two of the Cecil Rhodes scholar ships to dispose of. Lehman's credentials, vouched for by Yale, stood higher than any of those submitted by 200 other applicants. Leh man will enter Oxford next autumn. SAULT STE. MARIE, MICH.What is said to be the oldest piano in the state is in possession of James R. Ryan. It is more than 100 years old, and for sixty year it has been in the Soo. The piano was purchased by Mr. Ryan's father thir ty years ago from the widow of Alexander Cadotte. Cadotte in 1844 went to Eng land as an interpreter for a band of In dians which was being exhibited there, and while at Middlesex met and married ! Sarah Waynes. He brought his bride back with him the same year, as well as the piano, which had been in the Haynes family for several decades.

Johnson Submits a Bill Appropriating $2,500 for Famine Sufferers. The Bill Providing for a Women's Reformatory Presented by Senator Wilson. In order to give an encouraging im petus to the movement for the relief of the famine sufferers in Sweden, Norway and Finland, Senator C. A. Johnson of St. Peter, presented this morning a bill appropriating $2,500. He followed with a motion that the rules be suspended and the bill placed on final passage. Objection was raised by Senator Mc Gill, who argued that the measure was most unusual in form. To vote state aid for destitute people in foreign countries was a matter that must have the fullest consideration. He suggested that the bill be referred to the committee on finance. Mr. Johnson accepted the suggestion. Somervllle's Insurance Plan. Senator Somerville reintroduced his measure,. which fell by the wayside at the last session, and which is intended to settle controversies over fire losses cov ered by insurance. The bill authorizes the district judges, on application of either party to the controversy, to appoint three disinterested referees to take testimony and report. A Reformatory for Women. At the request of persons interested in the reformation of woman criminals, Senator Wilson presented a measure for the establishment of a reformatory for women, as part of the penal system of Minnesota. The proposed institution is to be,managed by the board of control, which is to select the site and cause the erection of suitable buildings. The bill carries an appropriation of $100,000. New County Tangles. Two bills to straighten out complica tions arising in several new counties in the north through the legal attacks on the validity of their organization, have been prepared by Senator Swedback. One provides for the filing and recording of deeds of conveyance on land in the new counties at the seats of the counties of which they were formerly a part. An other extends the powers of notaries pub lic- to the new counties. For Antl-Compulsory Vaccination. Dr. Leverson's propoganda against com pulsory vaccination appears to have borne fruit in St. Paul. Senator Hardy sent up a bill to prohibit health officers from en forcing vaccination on persons who object. It also prohibits requiring children to beties vaccinated for admission to the public schools. Cemetery Fund Enlargement. Senator Calhoun of Minneapolis- intro- duced a bill authorizing cemetery asso ciations to increase their improvement funds up to $1,000,000. The present limit is $100,000, but the Lakewood cemetery desires to increase its improvement fund. The Law Llbrary-Transfer. . At the request of Senator Wilson the senate suspended the rules and passed S. F. 108, providing quarters for the law libr ary now in the Temple Court to the new courthouse. The bill provides that the district judges upon the showing that such a library is for the best interests of the county may direct the county commission ers to furnish suitable quarters and pro vide for Its care and maintenance at not to exceed $1,500 a year. Action on Bills. The senate sitting as a committee of the whole on general orders took action as follows: S. V. 47.

INJURED IN A WRECK Loucks and Thompson Well Known Stockmen of Iowa. Special to The Journal. Liarrabee, Iowa, Feb. 2.Thomas Loucks and John Thompson, injured in the Illin ois Central wreck this morning, near Cloverdale, 111., are well known stockmen here. Louvks, who is about 38 years of age and whose injuries are thought to be fatal, has recently had financial re verses. These were followed by his wife's securing a divorce and taking the! custody of their five children. John Thompson Is a member of theof firm of Grundy & Thompson, and one of the influential men here. His injuries are reported less dangerous than those of Loucks. These are the children of Mrs. Annie Nelson, deserted by thr-ir father, and a bill is in the Minnesota house to give her $2,000 from the state treasury.

A communication was received In theH. house from the National Live Stock or ganization of Portland, Oregon, this morning, asking the legislature to pass an anti-trust bill similar to a measure inclosed. The bill adapts to trade and commerce within a state the Sherman anti-trust law, and the Hoar bill, now pending in the senate, and the Jenkins bill, in the house, which was prepared by Attorney General Knox. The last section, making an appropriation, is on the lines of the Hepburn amendment to the bill now pending in the United States senate. It is the opinion of this association that such laws passed by the legislatures of the several states would, in connec tion with the Sherman anti-trust law and the proposed amendments to that law, solve the trust problem. The objects of the bill are announced as follows: "To protect trade and com merce 'against unlawful restraints and monopolies and to prohibit giving or re ceiving of rebates on the transportation of property within the state." Violations of the terms of the act are punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000 or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. A Convict Labor Inquiry. Mr. Fryberger of Hennepin introduced a resolution calling upon the committee on prison labor to investigate conditions at the Stillwater penitentiary with refer ence to the work done by prisoners for private corporations, especially in thegentlemanly manufacture of shoes. The resolution went over under notice of debate. School Bond Bill Appears. The senate bill, authorizing the issu ance of $200,000 Minneapolis school bonds was reported for passage by the Henne pin delegation. The-Minnette bill, increasing the terms of representatives from two to four years and limiting the duration of sessions, was indefinately postponed. Vegetables by Weight. Mr. Shove of Hennepin introduced a bill requiring the following vegetables to be sold by weight instead of measure: Spinach, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, tur nips, rutabagas, oninions, tomatoes and apples. The law applies only to coun of more than 50,000 population. Its infraction is made punishable by a fine of not to exceed $100 or imprisonment for not more than ninety days. ] Mr. Budd's bill to require municipali-l ties to pay the cost of bonds for its offi cers was defeated by 57 ayes to 23 nays. Absentees were called for, but not enough responded to save the measure which would have been carried on a full vote. Separate Ballots for Amendments. In committee of the whole, the house recommended for passage the Haugland bill, requiring that proposed constitutional amendments be printed on separate bal lots. Speaker Babcock cautioned committees not to get too far behind in their work. He said that a large number of bills, which should have been reported out, were still held in' the committee rooms. ". ~.

When Senator Wilson's bill authorizing the issue of $200,000 Minneapolis school bonds comes up in the house to-morrow morning it will not have clear sledding, although reported for passage by the Hennepin delegation. The delegation is not unanimous in its favor^ and Mr. Girl ing said to-day that he would offer an amendment, reducing the amount to $100,000. Thus the matter will be fought out on the floor of the house instead of in the Hennepin delegation, where it really belongs. Against the Trading Stamp. A bill to prohibit the use of trading stamps will be brought into the legislature shortly, it is said, and will have the back ing of the retail grocers and small mer chants of the state generally. A measure prohibiting the sale or handling of such stamps has been put in force in theThe state of Washington. NEW HOUSE BILLS. H.

All Fees for the State Treasury Senator Rudolph's Ailment* Special to The Journal. . Pierre, S. D., Feb. 2.T_he nodical ex aminers' bills and board of health bill, as finally agreed upon, have been drafted after several days of hard study by Dr. E. McNutt of Aberdeen and Dr. John P. Hawkins of Sioux Falls. Two distinct boards are provided, a board of health to look after the public health proper and a board of medical examiners to regulate the practice of medicine. The medical examiners are to be reput able physicians to be appointed by the governor, four of whom shall be of the regular school, two v homeopaths and one eclectic, and every ^applicant for license J shall answer correct ly 75 per cent of the questions, which, ex- = cept in therapeutics ' and practice, shall be jsuch as all schools may answer alike and in therapeutics Declared Fatal. E. Rudolph. uated from a reputable school of medicine having a full.four-year course, provided if he graduated from a reputable school before 1896, then three years of study shall be deemed sufficient. Four mem bers of the board must consent to the is sue of the license. All questions and an swers in writing must be preserved by the board for reference. The board may refuse a license for un or dishonorable conduct and they may revoke a license for like con duct, but the aggrieved person may ap peal from such action, to the circuit court but- no appeal may be taken from the re fusal to issue. a license in the first in stance. Dishonorable and ungentle manly conduct are defined by the bill to mean abortion, employing cappers and steerers, obtaining fees by advertising that manifestly incurable cases can be cured, betrayal of professional secrets, deceptive advertising, conviction of felony or habitual Intemperance. The applicant for license must deposit a fee of $20. Physicians who have passed an exam ination from accredited boards of other states may be certified here, if the stand ard there is as high as here. All fees received must be paid into the state treasury and the board paid from regular appropriations. The board meets twice yearly. - Itinerant physicians are specified as those who secure patients by means of solicitation or advertising, not being regu larly established at one point, and they are required to pay aft itinerant's license of $500. It is made a misdemeanor to practice without a license, or to prefix the title "Dr." or append "M. D." when not entitled to do BO. The osteopaths,, army surgeons and dentists are excepted from the operations of the act. * . Rudolph Believed to Be Dying. Information has been received of theCounty most alarming nature as to the condition of Senator Rudolph of Canton, who was compelled to give up legislative work two weeks ago: A\'caa$ti01 otphysicians -has declared his ailnient fatal and his de mise is daily expected. Senator Rudolph, in the short period, lie was "here, impressed the legislature, with his ability,- fairness and sound judgment - and there is real grief over the alarming" news. The proposition to endow the Yankton asylum with the entire amount of money received from the counties for the care of the insane is having a hard time in the house and is likely tojbe'as stubborn ly fought as any bill of the 'session. It seems altogethe #Hj&qultable? to\ give the, asylum all-' the money/ paid in" by-. tUe counties" for that" ex press purpose, but (as the asylum has got along with kss it -is argued that if.any thing is done about the excSiB it *tsfi'J. be returned to the counties. -The house committee having tKe bill under consid eration stands seven for and four against, and ther e will be two reports. Dr. Mead of the asylum left for home this morn ing not very hopeful for his bill. Movement Against the "Specials.' There-' is a constant tightening of sentiment among the non-institution members against the special and building appropriations which is likely to take definite form within a few days. Even the world's fair proposition is in danger and if anything is done it is likely to be on a very sonservative scade. J. S. Crawford, the representative from St. Louis, who has been here for thedisillusioned week, has gone to North Dakota to pre sent the subject x -" "~ ' '- rts- ~"* there and will re turn in a short time. He has made an ex cellent impression. fact that there are no members of either house who care to make a strong personal fight for the exposition appropriation is its great weakness. With a few members feeling toward it as the institution mem bers do toward their building bills, it- would be in better lines. Senator Moody is bearing the brunt of the insurance fight and it is fast becom ing intensified. The disposition of legislature is to take any action which will relieve the rate situation and many inclined to favor the Moody bills be cause the companies oppose them. The more conservative are still looking for the proper means, fearing that the plans proposed will not give relief. Commis sioner Shober does not expect immediate relief, but holds that the Moody-Gerhart bills are in the way-of better conditions and will In the long run affect rates ad vantageously. Leadership Not Settled. With the session almost half over it cannot be said that any.member has de veloped a position of acknowledged lead ership, and honors are as evenly divided as upon the first day. Longstaff, by rea son of quick perception and speedy ac tion, as much as for his position at the head af the committee, is looked to inin matters relating to appropriations and the responsibilities of this position have prevented him frm actively identifying himself with other lines of legislation. Rogde. as chairman of the judiciary is impressing his ability and sound judgment on the house, as is Hayes of the Black Hills corner and when either speak they are accorded earnest attention. Price of Yankton maintains the position he has won In previous sessions as a leader of the conservative' element. In the senate Lawson, Dillon, Moody and McDougal] are "most frequently heard. It is a strong body and there are few who could not properly aspire to leadership. Boyland and Stoddard are farmer sen ators, who are level headed and whose advice is sought and followed. They are conservative and can express themselves clearly and forcibly. M9E&AH HAM OAKAL AMENDMENTS. ... Tr.ihingtoni.

LOUISer Flickertail State More Than Likely to Appropriate for the Com ing Exposition. Governor Is Agreeable, hut Does Not Favor the Erection of a State Building. Special to The Journal. Bismarck, N. D., Feb. 2.The sentiment is generally in favor of a good exhibit at the ttt. Louis exposition. The members of the legislature and Governor "White fa vor as liberal an appropriation as slate can make, consistent with its finances. ' The report of the Pan-Amer ioan commission, recently made to legislature, urges that in view of the suc cess of the state's exhibit there, a liberal appropriation be provided f dr St.. Louis,, and to that end part of the appropriation that remained unexpended after the Buf falo show has been used to lay the found ation for an exhibition at St. Louis. committees have been organized and interest aroused in the preparation of grains, grasses and vegetables. The wool growers at their recent meeting de clared in favor of a liberal appropriation and asked that at least 25 per cent of it be expended "for the live stock interests. Governor White does not favor the erec tion, of .a. state building. He believes it would be better to devote all the'money to gathering and dis- when the tide of immigration is headed this way from the states of the middle west. The appropriation asked for $50,000, but this will probably be scaled down somewhat. Good Financiering Needed. The state at present has funds to pav the expenses of the legislative assembly and the current expenses of the state gov ernment, but those who think there are funds to be liberally appropriated will be if they will refer to the mes sage of the governor, which places the to tal of receipts from all sources for the ensuing two years for the general fund at $1,-127,000, and the estimate of thetive standing appropriations now existing for the two years at $727,050. This leaves less than half a million dollars to be ap propriated for the insane asylum, the state penitentiary, Industrial school, reform school, institute for the feeble minded, the miscellaneous appropriations a nd which the legislative assembly may feel called upon to make, including the appro priation for the St. Louis exposition ex hibit, and the various other minor appro priations, which aggregate a goodly sum. It will require close figuring to make re ceipts meet expenses for the two years and keep within the limit of the state's available funds. The legislative assembly made a special to pass a bill making four members of the state board of pardons a quorum for the transaction of business, in order that the board might meet Monday and take action on some pardon matters in the absence of Chief Justice Young of the supreme court. After hastening the bill to its passage, the legislature took a recess until Feb. 3, before the officers of the two houses signed the bill, so that it cannot go to the governor for approval until Tuesday at the earliest. The meeting of the board of pardons will have to be ad journed from Monday until such time as the bill is approved by the governor which will probably be oh Tuesday. "Hague" Agreement In Danger. Harmony seems to be in danger of a sevei-e jolt in Bismarck, as a result of the raid in the Northwest hotel Saturday night, and already there are mutttrings the air and clouds on the horizon Proprietor Patterson of the hotel was one of the principals to the now noted "Hague meeting," but State's Attorney Register does not seem to have been taken Into the reckoning when it was said that all present and prospective breaches' were healed. Patterson was one of the principal sup porters of Register at the last election, but this does not seem to have carried any weight with the state's attorney in the performance of what he believed to be his duty. It is said that warrants will be applied for for all who violate the prohibition law, whether the violation be technical or flagrant, and that persons who keep liquor in their apartments for their own delectation and that of visit ing friends may be embarrassed by pros ecutions. This statement of the matter, however, is probably an extreme view. Ex-State Superintendent J. M.

The town ship supervisors, by their chairman and secretary, issued a- to-torn order to Fleming Manufacturing company for a road-grading machine, and the order was negotiated at the bank. The town re fused to pay the order, it being alleged that It was issued without authority of the board, and the bank sued and recov ered judgment. The case has been ap pealed by the town board. It is probable that an effort will be made the early part of the week to bring back the senate bill for the repeal of the law for the contract engrossment and en rollment of bills and re-refer to the sen ate committee again. It has been argued with much effect that this law has been and will be the means of saving to the state and that the passage of the repeal bill is before a fair test of the matter has been had. Grand Forks After It, Too. Grand Forks is the latest applicant for the state fair. The business men held a meeting recently and resolved that they the fair and would make an ef fort to obtain it. They offer more and better inducements than" other town, at so it is asserted in a communica tion they have forwarded to Senator Tay lor. A bill presented in the senate on the day of adjournment is intended to pi*event children from suffering at the hands of distributors of free samples of medicine, cosmetics, salves, etc. Frequently, so Dr. Taylor, who introduced the bill, says, children pick up these free samples that are distributed from house to house, and serious consequences result. The bill makes it a misdemeanor to leave these sample packages on the premises of an other. - Up to the. time of .adjournment few bills have been disposed of in the two houses of the legislature, although over 200 have been introduced. The house and senatewill meet in .joint session Wednesday to hear the represen tatives of the St. Louis exposition, who will present the matter to the assembly and urge a liberal appropriation. Forecast of Legislation. A forecast of legislation indicates that little will be done of a radical nature, and not much beyond amendments of the ex isting laws. No Important new legislation lias been proposed. When the appropria tion matters are disposed of, there will remain little of importance to do. The proposed constitutional amendment re ducing the minimum price at which state lands may be sold from $10 to $5 an acre has been put to sleep in the house and will never be heard from again. This measure was proposed when the demand for lands was light and the price low. all lands in the state are in good demand and there is little if any of the state school land that will not bring the minimum price of $10. Some insurance legislation will be passed, but nothing of a radical nature. The same is true of railroads. A new judicial district will be created from the second district, and there will be another judge to appoint. Slight amendments to the revenue and taxation laws are pro posed, but nothing of more than passing importance. There will be some correc legislation, particularly with refer ence to taxation. The game laws of the state, will be slightly amended, bonds will be authorized for the varlbus educational institutions and possibly provision made for the completion of the capitol. The state will provide for a display at St. Louis. A state wolf bounty law may thewanted theleast beschool isNow pass.
