postal scandals. Mr. Roosevelt is now
practically directing the course of the in
vestigation and will continue to do so
until it is completed. H e has confidence
In Postmaster General Payne but desires
to be acquainted with every move and
to be advised of all developments.
During the three hours' conference the

very branch, of the subject. The presi
dent asserted again that he proposes to
leave no stone unturned until all who are
guilty of bringing the postal system into

\ Considerable time was devoted to sev
eral important cases which will be pre

salaries and allowance division will be
presented to the grand jury.
Orders to investigate the Brooklyn post
office with the same thoroness that char
acterized the inquiry at Ne w York went
out yesterday. The case of prominent
postal officials and their connection with
the Ne w York politicians now is ready for
,the grand jury. Harassed on all sides,
Postmaster General Payne's friends say
he must soon take a long rest or he will
completely break down.
The federal grand jury here resumed
. consideration of the postoffice department
cases to-day and it is stated that two
warrants were issued at the district at
torney's office this morning for the arrest
of persons involved in the scandals.

Courthouse With Dynamite.
New York Sun Special Service.
Evansville, Ind., June 16.An attempt
was made to wreck the courthouse at
Petersburg, the county seat of Pike coun
ity, Indiana, forty miles north of Evans

Baltimore, June 16.President Roose
velt spoke to the Northeastern saenger
bund in Armory hall last evening. In
part he said:
It is almost exactly 220 years ago that the
first marked Immigration from Germany to:
what were the colonies in thin western hemi
sphere began. As is inevitable With any pio
neers, those pioneers of the German race on this
side of the ocean had to encounter bitter pHya-

well, being In strange lands must Inevitably be
reaq to pay as the price of success the expen

the obstacles in their way. It was some fifty
years later that the great tide of German immi

one of the leaders in it being Muhlenburg, the
founder of a family which has contributed to
military and civil life some of the worthiest fig
ures in American history from the first.
Thraout our caTr-er t development the German
immigration to this country went Bteadily on

their sons and grandsons, played an ever-increas

culminated in the civil war for every lover of
the union must bear iu mind what was done in
this commonwealth as in the commonwealth cf
Missouri, by the folk of German birth or origin
who served so loyally the flag that was theirs
by Inheritance or adoption. And here in this
city I would be unwilling to let an occasion
like this pass without recalling the part of In

Doing a Good Work.
In speaking a word on the occasion, of this
great musical festival, I wish to say in the first
place that I only hope it may be given me
to listen long enough to you to make me feel
that there has been atonement for requirlug me
to speak at all. I feel that the men of this as
sociation and of kindred associations are sot only
adding to the common fund of pleasure, but are
doing genuine missionary work of a needed kind
when they hold such a festival as this. I wish
that everywhere in our country we could see
clubs and associations Including all our citi
zens, of the character that go to make up the
society which has furnished the reason for as
sembling of this great audience to-night. No
greater contribution to American social life
could possibly be made than this Instilling Into
it the capacity for "gemuthlichkeit."
No greater good can come to our people than
to encourage in them a capacity for enjoyment
which shall discriminate sharply between what
is vicious and what has pleasure in it. No
man is going to go very far wrong if he belongs
to a society where he can take his wife with
him and enjoy it. So you see, gentlemen,. I hail
you as missionaries alike from the aesthetic and
the moral standpoint.

Wall Street Is Speculating Upon the
Future of the Northern Se- '

Special to The Journal.
N ew York, June 16.Positive and em -
phatic denial was made yesterday by high
officials of the Northern Securities com
pany of statements made last week by
allies of the Harriman group of railroad
managers that Hill had sold enough
stock to lose control of the great railroad
trust and that the new masters had de
cided to dissolve. Hill himself would say
nothing for publication.
It is the impression among friends of the
Hill-Morgan party that the report is put
out. for. stock speculative purposes, be
cause the market reacted sharply yester
day. Harriman interests assert the truth
of the story as vigorously as the Hill peo
ple deny it. None of the persons respon
sible on either side will permit himself to
be quoted by name, but these who assert
the truth of the report give details and
confirmatory circumstances, while the
other side contents itself with bare de
It is known that Harrimans friends have
asserted ever since the company was
formed that the allaince was an armed
one and could not last longer than the
time when Harriman, who was forced into
it, could see his way to withdraw. It Is
also known that one of the most prominent
bankers in the Harriman camp knew the
supreme court decision was adverse to the
company several days In advance" of the
public announcement.
The St. Paul railroad is to be the central
feature of a new transportation trust in
the northwest, according to interests
which are asserting that the Securities
company will be dissolved.
Cooley's Appointment Does Not Ef
fect His Chances for a Civil

From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Post Build
ing*, Washing-ton,
Washington, Dec. 16.A. W. Cooley of
N ew York, appointed yesterday to be a
civil service commissioner, takes the place
vacated by William Dudley Foulke. The
vacancy caused by the resignation of
James R. Garfield has not yet been filled
and it is this place which Henry R. Green
of Duluth may possibly be called upon
to fill.
During an interview between the presi-.
dent and Representative Bede and Eugene
G. Ha y recently there was a good deal
of talk about Green and the president was
much Interested In what Bede had to say
about him.
The president, when W. W. Heffelfinger
declined an appointment on the commis
sion, began negotiations elsewhere and If
these fall thru, of which there is a good
prospect, Green will probably be named.

Residents of the Servian Capital Are
Showing Little Interest in , ,
Their New Sovereign. ' ,,"
, Belgrade, Servia, June 16.A deputa
tion of the two chambers, composed of
four senators and twenty'deputies, head
ed by the presidents of the two hous.es,
left Belgrade by special train last night
to inform King Peter of his election to
the throne. The officers who have been
appointed to attend the king went on the
same train. The deputation is expected
to return here with the king on Monday
or Tuesday next.
The chamber met at 10 o'clock this
morning and adjourned for the purpose of
going to the cathedral where" a great
thanksgiving seryice, including the Te
Deum, was celebrated.
Extraordinary lack of interest is shown
by a majority of the people in the events
arising from the revolution. The notice
issued by the municipal authorities yes
terday calling on the inhabitants to deco
rate their houses in honor of the new king
has. me*t with scant attention and the
town by no means has a festive appear

not brilliant. A military band marched
thru the town playing lively airs, but a
heavy rain soon cleared the streets.
No further progress has been made in
the revision of the constitution. Many of
the better class of Servians aver that the
present ministry is inclined to conserva
tive ideas and desires ,to protract delibera
tions on the subject of the modification
of the constitution until the arrival of
King Peter, thus giving the new sovereign
a free hand in granting a new constitu
This is partly confirmed by the report
of a committee of the chamber appointed
to revise the constitution which had been
instructed to produce an entirely new one,?
based on the constitution of 1888. The
more liberal politicians strongly object
to the incorporation in the new constitu
tion of the principle that the people should
revise the constitution at all.

greatest satisfaction by Prince Nicholas,
King Peter's father-in-law, and the Mon

bells were rung and bands paraded the

made a speech to an immense crowd ex
tolling the virtues and bravery of the
illustrious ancestors of King Peter and at
the same time condemning the manner in
which King Alexander was assassinated.

Spring Wheat Needs. Rain in Some
Portions of,the Da-
Winter Wheat Harvest Progressing
- Government Weekly
V Report.
Washington, D. C , June 16.The week
ly crop report is as follows: The week
ending June 15 was cool In, nearly all dis
tricts east of the Rocky mountains, the
minimum temperatures from the 10th to
the 13th thruout the central valleys and
southern states being the lowest of record
for the second decade of June, and heavy
frosts were of general occurrence In the
Upper Missouri valley, with light frosts
as far south as Tennessee. Under these
conditions the growth of^ vegetation had
been slow, but with a v^ery general ab -
sence of rain or light local showers in
the central valleys, much needed culti
vation has made favorable progress. The
long continued and disastrous drought in
New. England and the northern portion
of the middle Atlantic state has been re
lieved (being succeeded In some sections
by flood conditions), and the widespread
forest fires in these districts extinguished.
Generally favorable conditions prevailed
on the Pacific coast, except during the
early part of the week in Washington,
where drying northernly winds proved In
jurious In some sections. The week was
unseasonably warm in the eastern por
tions of Oregon and Washington and In
Idaho and northern Nevada.
While planting, replanting and cultiva
tion of corn in the central valleys have
been vigorously pushed, considerable
planting remains unfinished In the north
ern districts^, Corn is unusually late arid
has made very slow growth under the
low temperatures of the past week. In
the middle and south Atlantic stateB the
crop Is much In need of cultivation, and
in the southern states is largely laid by.
The winter wheat harvest is in progress
as far north as the southern portions of
Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Virginia.
While an improvement In the conditio^ of
this crop Is Indicated in northern Illinois
Ohio and over the northern portion! of
the middle Atlantic states, it has suffered
deterioration over a large part of the win
ter wheat belt as a result of Insects and
Increasing rust. .',* '
.In California the crop is maturing rap
idly and harvest is-in progress in the
southern * portion with heavy yields. In
Oregon and Washington winter wheat is
heading short, but with good heads in
Oregon. The crop was threatened by hot,
drying winds in Washington during the
part of the week, but escaped with
a light .Injury. '-
Spring wheat is in generally thrifty con
dition, but needs rain in portions.of the
Dakotas. Over the southern portion of
the spring wheat region the condition of
the crop is very promising and a marked
improvement is shown In Oregon, but in
Washington It has !experlenced drying
conditions, altho apparently not seriously
Injured. '* ' .
Oats have made favorable advancement
'in. the lower Missouri and upper Missis
sippi valleys, but need rain in the. Da -
kotas. In Michigan the crop is backward
arid uneven and -while general improve
ment is indicated .In: the Ohio valley, a
light yield is promised.
Except in Michigan and the Ohio valley
and middle Atlantic states, where a light
yield of hay is indicated, the general out
look for this crop continues promising.

Washington, June 16.Commissioner
General of Immigration Sargent returned
to Washington to-day from, a trip of in
spectlbn of immigrant stations along the
southern and northern borders of the
country,' the Pacific coast and Honolulu.
He is convinced as a result of 'his observa
tions that the Canadian border is not a}e
quately protected from illegal entrance of
Chinese^ and. Europeans arid, will recom
mend the establishment of more immi
grant stations in that section.
He will probably urge the establishment
of at least a-dozen such stations with a
full compliment of inspectors and clerks.
' It will be recalled that Inspector Watch
am made, an inspection last fall and in his
report indicated that the Canadian border
from the Atlantic ocean to the Soo was so
closely guarded that European immigrants
rejected at Montreal and Quebec had
adopted the practice of going further west
and slipping across at unguarded points
in Minnesota, North Da"kota and Montana.
Commissioner General Safeht's inspection
supported this information and he has
already stationed a small force of in
spectors along the border, but there are
not enough men to guard the line thor
oughly. The few men on duty, however,
have turned back a number of undesirable
European immigrants, and have arrested
others who had been smuggled into the
United'States. The Canadian Steamship
company sometime ago promised to estab
lish an inspection service abroad and not
to bring any Europeans over who would
be ineligible to enter the United States,
but they appear not to have lived up to
the agreement thus forcing the immigra
tion bureau to use extra precautions.

Owatonna, Minn., June 16.William' A.
Sutton, the state's star witness in the
prosecution of Charles and Henry Nelson
for the murder of Harry ~Ht. Krler on April
13 last, was sworn shortly before dinner
to-day and Is now telling a detailed story
of the crime. Unless the defense Is able
to break the force of his evidence by get-!
ting him badly tangled up, it wo.uld seem
that the prosecution could almost convict
on his statements alone,
The case was opened this morning by
County Attorney Littleton. The first wit
ness was Jacob Remmel, manager ,of
Krier's bowling alley, who organized a
searching party whlcli found Krier's dead
body beside the railroad track. Coroner
Adair was next sworn and then came Dr.
A. B. Stewart, both' testifying as to the
wounds upon Krler and when and where
his body was found.
After thus establishing that a crime was
committed the state put on young Sut
ton, whose evidence to this crime is In
accord with the confession made by him
when In duress in Minneapolis.
Charles Nelson Fired the Shot.
Sutton testified that Charles Nelson
fired the shot that killed Krler, Henry
Nelson first catching aifa then holding
the saloonkeeper while the shots, of which
there were two,
Nelsons, he witness said, forced him to
go thru the murdered man's pockets and
clothes and remove his money and val
Krier, the witness swore, rushed down
the embankment when stopped by the
Nelsons and was trying to. get over the
fence and away when he was caught and
shot to death. The direct and cross ex
animation of Sutton, will take up most of
the afternoon."
Judge Thomas'S. Buskham is presiding
and County Attorney Littleton is assisted
by W. F. Sawyer. The defense is in the
hands of Harlan E. Leach.
Besides Sutton,- the state has two im
portant witnesses in the persons of Chris
tine Jasperson and Anna Flinzog, girls
with whom the Nelsons were Intimate and
to whom they are alleged to have told
many of the details of the crime. It is also
said the state will swear a man who was
plowing in a field near by and who heard
the shots, and there Is an unconfirmed re
port that an eye witness of the killing will
be put on the stand. -
Coup by the State.
Contrary to expectations, the jury was
completed last evening and is conceded to
be an exceptionally good one. The jurors
are W. S. Weatherstone, J. F. Brady, Wilv

cepted several who admitted having had

Regular Shut-Down on the Coast
May Have to Be Continued
Special to The Journal.
Tacoma, Wash., June 16.A circular
letter has been issued by the secretary of
the Pacific Coast Lumbermen's associa
tion which comprises every manufacturer
of importance in Washington, Oregon
Idaho and British Columbia, setting forth
the extremely unfavorable condition of
the shingle market arid advising that the
regular shut-down of the shingle mills*
on July 4 be continued indefinitely.
About two months ago resolutions were
passed by the association advising a gen
eral shut-down of the shingle mills, but
out of a total of 357 mills only 116 were
closed, and several of these have-resumed
operations. A s the matter now stands,
the circular states that the mills must
close down or the bottom will drop com
pletely out of the shingle market.
There are few mills that have the- capi-
tal to enable them to hold their output
until there are better prices offered, and
if they attempt It, it Is more than likely
they will soon go into ,the hands oj a re
ceiver. * " " -" " ' . - .
but they came too late to
save the crop.

Endorses the Catarrhal Tonic Fe -ru-na
A Congressman's Letter,
Dr. J. F. Ensor, Postmaster of Colum- y
bid, S. C , late Superintendent and Phy
sician in charge of State Insane Asylum
at Columbia, S. C.,'writes:
i "After using your Peruna myelf for
a short period, and my family having used
and are now using the same with good
results, and upon the Information of oth
ers who have been benefited by It as a
cure for catarrh and an Invigorating ton lo,
I can cheerfully recommend It to all per
sons requiring so effective a remedy."
Dr. J. F. Ensor.

Dr. R. Bobbins, Muskogee, I. T., writes:
"Peruna Is the best medicine I know
of for coughs and to strengthen a weak
stomach and to give appetite. Besf5e
prescribing it for catarrh, I have ordered
it. for weak and debilitated people and
have not had a patient but said it helped
him. It is an excellent medicine and it
fits so many cases.
"I have a large practice and have a
chance to prescribe your Peruna. I hope
you may live long to do good to the sick
and suffering."
Only the weak need a tonic. People
are never weak except from some good
cause. One of the obscure causes of
weakness, and the one oftenest over
looked, Is catarrh.

Catarrh Inflames the mucous mem

escape through the mucous membrane
In the form of mucus. This discharge
of mucus is the same as the loss of blood.
It produces weakness.-
$61,000 SHORT

City park fund, $634.41 increased to $6,-
841.05, or $6,206.64.
Ward funds, balance due Increased from
$30,683.85 to $56,242.89, or $25,559.04.
Total and net shortage Increase for all
funds, except school and sinking fund
which do not appear in ledger and trial
balance account, increased from $367,-
896.15 on Feb. 28 to $429,135.93 on March
19, a net increase of $61,239.78 in the
Haugan shortage from one day's work.
The above balances due the various
funds by Haugan on Feb. 28 and March
19, respectively, taken from the trial bal
ance book, are verified by the entries in
journal "G," all of which bear the date
of March 19.
In other words, seven weeks after Hau
gan's affairs became so notorious that he
was compelled to resign, seven days after
his successor, C. Si Hulbert, was elected
to the office, and even after the latter's
bond had been approved and Hulbert was
duly qualified as City treasurer, A. ' C.
Haugan, If the books of the city controller
are to be believed, appropriated $61,000
net, taking $26,871 due the general fund,
$5,686 due the permanent improvement
fund, $2,095 due the waterworks fund,
$6,284 due the revolving fund, $6,206 due
the park fund, and about $25,000 due the
various ward fundsthereby In one day,
after he had ceased to be city treasurer,
being permitted to receive atid appropriate
the sum of $61,000.
His condition was at this time known to
all of his official associates, and had been
for many weeks, if not months.
Two expert reports thereon had been
made to the city council.
The controller's office had made an in
vestigation of the situation for report to
the council, and its books told the story.
Altho the Item of $5,356.03, Collected
from municipal court fees and licenses,
came directly to the city treasurer without
the intermediation of the controller's of
fice, It is well known that no taxes col
lected for the city by the county treasurer
can be turned over to the city treasurer
until after the settlement between the
county auditor and city controller.
A Pertinent Question.
, Consequently, the $36,705 of the January
tax settlement and the $38,610 of the delin
quent tax settlement, amounting to over
$75,000, were turned over to Haugan by
the controller's office on March 19, accord
ing to the controller's books, with a full
knowledge of the facts and by deliberate
official action. By reason of the intimate
relation of the controller's and treasurer's
offices, it can scarcely be supposed that
the officials in the controller's office were
ignorant of the fact that Hulbert was
elected a week before and was duly qual
ified on March 18, or that he was about
to take possession on the morning of
March 20.
What were the conditions and consider
ations that compelled the delivery of these
$75,000 of taxes to Haugan, ex-treasurer,
on March 19, instead of to C. S. Hulbert,
duly elected and qualified treasurer, on
March 20?

Hon. C. W. Butts, ex-Member of Con
gress from "North Dakota, in a letter from
Washington, D . C , says:
"That Peruna is not only a vigorous,
as well as an effective tonic, but also a
cure of catarrh, is beyond' controversy.
It is already established by its use by the
thousands who have been benefited by it.
I cannot too highly express nfy apprecia
tion of its excellence.C. W. Butts.
Peruna stops the catarrh and prevent*
the discarge of mucus. This is why Pe -
runa is called a tonic. Peruna does not
give strength by stimulating the nerv
ous' system a little.
It gives strength by preserving the mu
cous membranes against leakage.
It gives strength by converting th
blood fluids and preventing their drain
ing away in mucous discharges.
Constant spitting and blowing the nos
will finally produce extreme weakness
from the loss of mucus.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case, and he will
be pleased to give you his valuable advlsa

Spectacular Features of the Celebra
tion and Festival of Whitt
Earth Indians.
Gov. Van Sant and Lieut.-Gov. Jones
Among the Speakers of
the Day.
Special to The Journal.
White Earth, Minn., June 16.The Sis
seton Sioux Chief, Two Stars, is the rank
ing head man of the Dakota Indians who
have come up from their reservation ly
ing close to Big Stone lake, to celebrats
with the Ojibways the latter's occupa
tion of this extremely desirable reserva
tion during the past thirty-five years.
After the spectacular parade yesterday
by both tribes and their peaceable meet
ing at which the pipe of peace was passed
from chief to chief and the hatchet
burled in the presence of a large audience.
Governor Van Sant, Lieutenant Governor
Jones, Rev. Louis Moneypenny, a full
blooded Ojibway, and Chief May Zhuck
Ke Ge-Shig of the same tribe used the
time until noon in making speeches, the
two former keeping well within the
bounds of the English language and the
latter close to the Ojibway.
Simultaneously after dinner a baseball
game and the presentation of Hiawatha
began, the one being played by a visiting
nine with the White Earth Invinclbles,
who did not belie their name, and the
other being put on in the assembly hall
by the school children. These events
were followed by dances, which took
place to the music of Indian drums in the
fields adjoining the old folks' home, old,
middle aged and young Indians taking
part in the presence of the largest crowd
that has ever been on the reservation.
The dancing lasted until a late hour la
the evening.
It is evident that Major Michelet is a
disciple of good roads, as he has recently
placed the highway on the reservation,
fourteen miles long, between the agency
and Detroit, in fine condition, making it
possible to haul supplies from that point
at much less expense than formerly and
insuring speedy connection by team with
the outside world whenever it is neces
sary. The Indians have performed most
of the labor. The council fire and festivi
ties, auspiciously began yesterday, will
last until this evening.
Among the guests of the reservation
are United States District Attorney C. C.
Haupt, Assistant District Attorney J. M.
Dickey, Lieutenant Dickey and F. W.
Rev. Father H. C. Gaus of Washingtox*
