*,?L'? TALES OF FAMINE The Christian Herald Relief Expe dition Finds Conditions Still Bad in Finland. Late Reports of a Rosy Hue Are De nied by the Dispatches Now Sent. New York, April 2.The Christian Her ald prints a disptach from Haparanda, Sweden, dated March 17, which says: "Dr. Klopsch, with the Christian Herald Finland relief expedition, to-day crossed the Swedish frontier from Tornea. Finland, to this ,lace having driven from Uleaborg by sledges. "Throughout the entire journey of the expedition, from Helsingfors to Tornea on the Finnish boundary line, its progress was marked by extraordinary popular demonstrations, the people weleeming the travelers with song, oratory, poetry, and tributes of beautiful flowers, to express their heartfelt appreciation of the gener osity of the American people, in helping Finland in her time of need. At Tornea, their arrival was made the occasion of a public holiday. All the schools were closed, and the whole populace gathered at the city hall and enthusiastically welcomed the expedition. . "In three weeks the expedition has trav ersed the greater part of northern Fin land by sledges, including Kuopio, Iden salmi, Kajana. Suomussalmi, and practic ally every important center of distress north and east of Helslngfors, being the first part of Americans who have ever journeyed through northern or eastern Finland in winter. "Notwithstanding official claims that the situation is well in hand, the expedi tion reports that the famine throughout Finland is gradually increasing in inten sity and extent. Present conditions fully corroborate all previously published ac counts. Even as far south as the sixty second degree, at Idensalmi. the most ap palling conditions prevail. Hundreds of children are begging bread from house to house. Scarlet fever and measles are epidemic. "Eight hundred deaths have oc- - curred in. the district. "A single church parish reports that 5,000 are absolutely destitute, and have been subsisting solely on 'hunger-bread' since October. Meat, milk and potatoes are utterly lacking throughout the whole famine area. Thousands are barefooted and clothed in rags, while the ground is covered by deep snow. The suffering and want arc beyond description. In the Ka jani and Uleaborg districts, the conditions are worst of all. "At least 100.000 Finlanders are wholly dependent on relief at the present moment. Half the cattle are dead, and the reports of human deaths by starvation are persist ent. The American contributions, exceed ing $125,000, have unquestionably averted a large mortality. "The worst will come in April and May, when the spring thaws will render many of the sufferers inaccessible, even by Mr. James A. Gait, of the Fourteenth U. S. Infantry, Which Was the First to Scale the Wall of Pekin and Plant the Stars and Stripes on Chinese Possessions, Contracted In flammation of the Kidneys and Was Cured by WARNERS SAFE CURE. MB. GALT'S FATHEB WAS ALSO CURED OF GALL-STONES BY "SAFE CURE." V K Warner's Safe Cure Co., Rochester, N. T.: Exposure during the war settled in my kidneys and bladder, causing severe inflammation and serious pains in passing urine. At the time or my discharge I was simply unfit for duty and unable to wark. My father had been cured of gallstone through the use of Warner's Safe Cure, and so he advised me to take it. I used it faithfully for three weeks before I found relief, but it seemed like a godsend to me, I had endured suffering so long. I kept up the treatment for four months and was then completely cured. This is over eighteen months ago, but I am pleased to state that I have had no relapse since, but am enjoying most excellent health, and gladly do I indorse your Safe Cure.

WAENEB'S SATE PILLS move the howels gently and aid a syeeCTy an to Scale Wall of Pekin. JAMES A. GALT. ANALYSIS FREE. THURSDAY EVENING, snowshoes, Finland's gratitude for Amer ican help is universal." Speaking of the Swedish famine the Christian Herald says: In the far north, the disaster has been most overwhelming. It began with last autumn, when famine appeared in Nor bottens Lan, Sweden's most northerly province. The people there, are, as a rule, deeply religious, and the Bible is their mainstay. Private help was sent from various quarters, and the people were barely kept alive, but the supplies were soon exhausted, and death by starvation stared the people in the face. "Gradually the famine in Sweden has swept down from the north to within 200' miles of Stockholm, the capital. It is now almost general over a very large sec tion of the country. Dr. Klopsch, on reaching Stockholm, will confer with the relief committee. The Swedish people have urgently appealed to American sym pathy." BOLD ROBBERY ON A TRAIN Gang Thought to Be Operating Out of the Twin CitiesMcDow- ell's Loss. Special to The Journal. Fargo, N. D April 2.A bold robbery was committed on a Northern Pacific train here. Sam McDowell, an elderly resident of New Rockford, was the victim. He had been in California for the winter and was returning home. He and his wife had a double seat in the day coach and when Fargo was reached he went to the open door to get a breath of fresh air. While in the doorway he remembers being crowded and jostled by some men, and ten minutes later missed his pocketbook, said to contain $400 in cash and 5600 in drafts. There were some other small checks and his watch, which were also stolen. The men are thought to have been on the train from Minneapolis and there is said to have been four in the party. A Russian farmer was recently robbed at Hanklnson in the same manner. The police think the gang operates out of the twin cities on crowded trains. It is probable a meeting of the Tristate Drainage association will be called for Fargo to urge the federal government to make a survey of the Red River valley to estimate the cost of improvements for flood prevention. An appropriation of $10,000 was made by congress for that purpose, but the department is slow to get the work started. Secretary Kelsey of the associa tion is urging the mayors of Fargo, Grand Forks and other valley cities to act as promptly as possible. CRT/EL AND INHUMAN TREATMENT. Chicago, April 2.Annie L. Agat, wife of Rabbi Isaiah Agat, has filed a bill for divorce In the circuit court. Her husband, she avers, smokes between sixty and one hundred cigarettes a day.

"BOYS ABE TIRED OF IT" Henry Watterson Again Reads tjie Riot Act to Our Gallant Young Leader. Louisville, Ky., April 2.Henry Water son believes W. J. Bryan is seeking . to injure any chances the democratic party may have for success unless the party conforms to his way of thinking. Mr. Watterson in an editorial says: "Mr. Bryan speaks disdainfully of moneyv Money is as needful to political battle as powder and ball to real battles. Does Mr. Bryan think that Mr. Tilden was less a democrat because he was a rich man? That is the meaning of what he says. If a man be not a pauper he is a republican. $- "In Mr. Bryan's vocabulary democ racy and defeat are synonymous terms. The moment a democrat looks like a winner Mr. Bryan begins to hate and abuse him. The boys are mighty tired of it. They are hun gry and thirsty. They can see noth ing in what Mr. Bryan is driving at but continued dissension, hopeless division and certain defeat. "If Mr. Bryan has his way it is an other drubbing in 1904. If he does not get it he means to bolt. After he has done this both wings of the party will stand even and then they may get to gether. Before that, however, some of us will be dead." PANAMA CANAL Some of the Big Projects on the Isthmus. Washington, April 2.Some idea of the magnitude of the Panama canal project may be gleaned from a simple mention of some of the great engineering feats The largest cut known to engineering will be made on the isthmus when the canal will be dug through a hill 320 feet high and half a mile long. Another great work will be the con struction of the Bohia dam. They will have to go down 120 feet for a foundation, and the dam will be 220 feet from top to bottom and half a mile long. The government of Colombia will get $10,000,000 the French Canal company will getj. $40,000,000. The cost of the canal's completion will- be $135,000,000, and that sum will be provided by the is suance of bonds of the United States as the money Is needed. The canal commission will have $10,- 000,000 In cash at hand after Colombia and the canal company have been paid witli which to make a start. SUED FOE $50,000 State Senator Eaton's Action Against the Milwaukee Free Press. Milwaukee, Wis., April 2.State Sen ator B. A. EJaton of this city to-day began a suit for libel against the Milwaukee Free Press, placing his damages at $50,000. The case grows out of an Anna Held chorus girl affair at Madison two years ago. In an editorial the paper in de nouncing him for his position against the primary election bill classified him as a member of the "Unsavory Anna Held quartet," meaning that Eaton was one of several senators who figured in an esca pade about which there was much scandal at the time. Eaton was not mixed up In the affair at all. DESTROYING COMPETITION Sioux City Company Would Do It hy Means of Injunction.

The main mat ter to be investigated is the alleged pool ing arrangement between the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroad companies, which, it is charged, divided the Cali fornia traffic to the disadvantage of shippers. The Southern California Fruit exchange and certain other big shippers who are represented in a company known as the Consolidated Forwarding company, are the plaintiffs in the action, and both the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe are made defendants.

The combine effected by President A. H.

It is believed by some that the powers which Naftseger will now wield as the absolute dictator of the ship ping will enable him to enforce some of the demands for which shippers have been contending for several years.

Commission. Chicago, April 2.The salt trust rate question was investigated yesterday by the interstate commerce commission. J. M. Mulkey of Detroit appeared as wit ness for the complainant on a charge that the railroads by practically allowing a re bate on a salt rate to a concern operating boats between Chicago and Michigan points gave it a monopoly of the salt in dustry. He testified that there were ten inde pendent salt manufacturers in that city able to compete with the salt trust before the railroads changed the freight rate in January, 1901. Since then, he declared, al but two of the firms have been com pelled to retire. F. A.
