panles are in camp and 554 men have
been registered. I t is believed the num
ber will reach 575 before camp closes.
The Journal excursion on the J . J .
Hill landed a t camp and watched the
boys on the field and range.
The mock parade, which was to have
been held yesterday afternoon, was called
off owing to the fact that three com
panies were on the inspection line, and
so many of the men on the ranges. The
parade will probably take place on Sun
day afternoon.
A courtmartial will be held in camp,
presumably on Sunday, charges having
been preferred against Musician Ray
mond for disobeying orders. H e will be
tried by the board .consisting of Captain

the military rules governing such cases.

BUFFALO LAK E, MINN.About thirty
farmers met at Pruetz's hall to discuss the

Special to The Journal: , *
Calumet, Mich., July 11.-The June pro
duction of the Lake . Superior copper
mines, about 17,000,000 pounds, was slight
ly in excess of the May product. Th e
lake district is producing, a larger scale
than ever before. Many of the mines are
nearing their full capacity, however, and
there will be no decided gains during the
next two months. For the first hatf of the
current year the production of this dis
trict was about 100,000,000 pounds. Dur
ing the next six months the output prom
ises to be larger. The Isle Royale will
about double its outpupt next month, with
two stamps dropping. The Mohawk and
Franklin are both installing, additional
stamps. The two new heads will go into
service in September. The Osceola is
stamping more rock than at any previous
period of the year,- and will further in
crease its output. The Champion will
make more capper as soon as its new air
compressor is in use.
The'Arizona mining craze has subsided
in the La ke Superior district, but the
formation of hew development companies
continu e* Because the Arizona stocks
are selling at lower figures does not mean
the people have lost faith in the mines.
Reason and cooler heads prevail now and
investors investigate before placing their
cash.in an enterprise.

CUTTING OFF ITS DEBT
Superior Has a Chance to Make a Good
Saving.
SUPERIOR, WIS.Douglas county and
the commissioners are making a strong
effort to take care of the floating debt,
most in the shape of judgments, against
the county, so th at future levies will not
be, burdened with such a great amount
of money for judgment and interest pur
poses. I t is figured that if the debt can
be arranged so that it will not be a
burden, improvements can be made in
various ways thruout the county. The
reform members of the board are mak
ing the effort.'
As it stands there is a debt of about
$175,000 in the shape of judgments. E .
F. McCausland hold over $10Q,000 of these
and has made the board an .offer to accept
$25,000 worth of tax certificates, $16,000
worth of tax deeds and to throw off $10,-
000 of his claims against the county,
making $50,000 that can be disposed%of
by turning over deeds and certificates to
land th at the county has been compelled
to take for taxes and which is valueless.

Douglas county will probably hire ex

Heretofore it lias simply been estimated

cost would be saved on the first tax roll

Incident of the Marcus Train Robbery at

LA CROSSE, .WIS.T-After the convic

and Clark,,arrested some months-ago for
the Burlington train robbery at Marcus,
Estelle made a confession as to the mu r
der of Gordon, the robber who was found
shot to death on the train after the rob
bery, as follows:
.."Brownie, one of the robbers who es
caped, and who was subsequently killed in
a hank robbery near Galveston, shot Gor
don, mistaking him .for a trainman. The
wound was not immediately - fatal.- and
Gordon told his pals to throw his body into
the engine firebox if capture became in
evitable. Estelle refused to permit this,
and when "leaving the engine Brownie
sealed Gordon's lips with a final bullet
and threw his body from the engine, as
he supposed, into the river.".

CHANGES IN COURSE
Action Taken by Regents' Commit
tee on Classification at Ag
ricultural College.
Qualifications of Students Entering
the Commercial Course Are
to Be Raised.
Special to Th Journal. . '
Brookings, S.D., July 11.The regents'
committee on classification and course of
study, with President Chalmers as chair
man, held a meeting at the agricultural
college and arranged for printing the new
catalog. 'Among the changes made in
the course of study was one providing for
a higher standard of students entering the
commercial course.
Hereafter students entering that course
will have to possess the same qualiflcata
tions as those entering the freshman class.
Thi i a movement in the right direction
and will greatly strengthen the commer
cial course, as a graduate from this course
under the new standard will be equipped
with a fair scholarship as well as a tech
nical training in stenography and type
writing.
This committee is wholly made up from
members of the faculty who are a t the
head of departments In the industrial lines
and was created by the regents of educa
tion about a year ago, on motion of
Regent Slocum, in the belief that such
members of the faculty having in charge
the workof classifying students would be
more likely to classify them in the agri
cultural and other industrial courses than
would professors at the head of other de
partments.
President Chalmers, by action of the
regents, is chairman of the committee, and
Professor Wilson, as vice president, will
hereafter act as vice president of the col
lege in the absence of the president.
