Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 4.Dynamos of 10,- 000 horse-power, with 25 per cent over load, operated by water wheels of 12,500 horse-power, is what the Great Northern Power company of Duluth is preparing to Install. These are double the size of any dynamos in use In any water power on this continent', and are about the same as those to. be installed at Niagara in the new part of the cataract work. Three or four of these gigantic dynamos will be the initial installation, to be fol lowed by others as power consumers re quire, till the 150,000 horse-power available Is utilized. The scheme is one of. the lar gest under way in this country, and is all ready for the contractors. Preliminary engineering work has been under way for more than two years, and the plan has been inspected by many of the foremost electrical and hydraulic engineers of this country and Europe, who produce it sim ple, feasible, and of great economic possi bilities. A fall of more than 350 feet, vertical, is secured above the wheels, by bringing the water down a steep hill in a pipe. Slight dams for storage, a canal two miles long, a steel gravity dam forty feet high, lead to the pipe. Below the waste weir are rapids, and in a mile or more of distance Is an.additional fall of seventy feet. The main power plant will furnish en ergy for many industries at Duluth, and probably for a score of iron mines on the Mesaba range. The Steel corporation alone has twenty mines in operation on the Mesaba range, for which coal is now brought from Ohio. Electro-chemical in dustries will also utilize this power, which Is to ba brought by wire into a transform ing and transmitting station at Duluth. The distance is but ten miles, while to the most distant Mesaba mines it is only sixty miles from the power plant. This company has been financed in Chicago and one eastern city outside New York. Its plans Call for an expenditure of about $3,500,00 for the Installation now contemplated, and an ultimate cost much greater. Much of the power to be devel oped has already been sold under long time contracts. LEFT A LARGE FAMILY Funeral at Sauk Rapids of Mrs. Nicholas Sand.

D.With the taking up of cash by school loans and the payment of about $100,000 of bonds which are not yet due, the cash balance in the hands of the state treasurer is probably less the first of this month than it has been at any time since the first year of statehood.

" fM VT ^ ~ - rpTTTC - THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAE. LEWIS HAS ANOTHER His First Fortune of $65,000 Melted Away in Less Than Two Fleeting Years. He Was a Good Spender and His "Friends" Encouraged Him . Wealth Again in Sight. * - - Special to Tho Journal. Webster City, Iowa, Aug. 4.Getting ready to come into possession of his sec ond fortune, John P. Lewis, the former King of Stratford, is going thru bank ruptcy proceedings In Butte, Mont. What he will do with this second fortune is a matter for speculation. He ran thru his first inheritance, amounting to $65,000, in just two years. When John was 19 his father died, and his uncle, Jasper Bell, was named as his guardian. The property inventoried $65,- 000 in cash, real estate in this state and in Kansas, and valuable coal lands. The young man wanted immedidate possession of the whole thing and worried over how he was to get it. After consulting an at torney, he learned that if he could obtain his guardian's consent to his marriage, he could thereby get his property into his own hands. The records show that in December, 1884, John P. Lewis was given a license to marry Emma Johnson, daughter of Henry Johnson. The money was how John's and he let the ropes and the anchor drop. The first thing he did was to buy a quarter section of land three miles east of Homer. He only paid $1,000 down on the purchase, altho he had money enough to buy and pay for half a dozen such farms. He had other uses for the cash. Later, the original owner of the land got it back on the mortgage for the purchase price. Lewis then started to fit the place up as the finest horse farm in this section of the country. He erected mammoth stone barns with all the latest improve ments and conveniences he could find. Nickel plates, fancy iron work and pol ished wood were everywhere. The Lewis horses lived in padded stalls. An extensive system of waterworks was established and a race track built on which to train the horses. Word soon got around that Lewis wanted to buy the best. horses he could find and he, had no diffi culty in locating them in fact, they were brought to him. John never knew before there were so many fine horses in the west. He was the victim of every big grafter in the state. . About this time Lewis started to cam paign the race tracks. He bought an out fit to startle the natives. Silk horse blankets by the dozen and patent leather halters with silver trimmings made the name of Lewis well known on the Iowa and western turf. At the home barn he had as many as seventy-five horses and employed twenty men to care for them. A little less than two years saw the end of the $65,000. Before long, everything was mortgaged up to the limit and when the crash came there was a struggle among the creditors to get their property. It was difficult to find anything without^ a claim upon it. Lewis seemed to be the least one concerned. When everything was gone he joined a threshing gang and worked by the day. He has been working ever since^ About three years ago he was employed at Frazier, a mining town in Webster county, this state. One of his old ^friends ojf- his. palmy days recognized "him and "asked him how ''he'Yelt' over the loss of all his property. "Oh, I feel lots better than I did and my wife feels bet ter. When I had that money I was tear ing around the country and raising the deuce, and now I am working every day and getting $50 and $60 a month. I like it much better." About two years ago Lewis went to Butte, and nothing much has been heard from him until recently, when notification was received of the institution of bank ruptcy proceedings in the Montana courts. His old friends learned some time ago there was another fortune waiting for him and it is supposed these proceedings are to prepare for his second inheritance. geant Diltz won, with a score of 30, Ser geant Kiesel making 25. Sergeant Kiesel won the first 200 points in the whole meet. - OSAGE DISTURBED Fourth of July Celebration Is Taken Into Politics.

D."From jesc to ear nest" was never more strikingly exempli fied than in the busy little city of Bruce, a dozen miles from this place, a few eve nings since. A company of young people, married and single, were enjoying an eve ning together, when the conversation turned upon the subject of marriage. In the company was a bright young man whom several of those present thought "ought to get married," and the name of a certain young woman was suggested. One gentleman declared: "If you will marry that girl I'll give you the house f and lot I now have in course of construc- tion." Another offered to provide certain articles of furniture another would do nate carpets a fourth would give a heat ing stove and range then one came for ward with crockery and glassware still another agreed to give tableware, and this was followed with offers of bedding, linen, otc, and one gentleman finished the list with a check for $100. The young man sat quietly listening, apparently enjoying the "joshing" and protesting that he was only on "speaking acquaintance" with the lady whom they desired him to marry. Later in the eve ning he absented himself from the com pany and was gone an hour or more, when he' again appeared. Securing th'3 atten tion of the company, he informed them that each could immediately prepare to make good the promises made an hour before, for he proposed to hold each strict ly to his pledge. It transpired that the young man had visited the girl In question, told her of what had been promised should they be come husband and wife, and asked what she had to 3ay about it. She coi.-sented to the proposition and directed him to inform his friends. When this announce ment was made, none of the company be-r lleved that a marriage would result, but they had only a few days to wait, for a marriage-license was procured and the two young people were made husband and wife. Then there was a "hustling" to All all pledges, and within a few days the couple were living in the house promised Ihcm, surrounded with furniture, house keeping utensils, etc., according to agree ments made on the evening the jesting was enjoyed.
