Secret Servioe Men Ordered Him Away Twice and Then Arrested Him Examined, This Homing, He Declared That He Had Had a "Wireless" Talk "With the President and That Miss Roosevelt Had Visited Him at His Home in a Red Automobile. Oyster Bay* I*. I., Sept. 2.A man giv ing his name as Henry Weilbrenner, was arrested at Sagamore Hill late last night while making a persistent demand to see president Roosevelt. The man was armed With a revolver, fully loaded. He waa taken to the village and placed in the town prison. Shortly after 10 o'clock last night Weil brenner drove to Sagamore Hill in a buggy. He was stopped by the seoret service operative on duty- Weilbrenner aid he had a personal engagement with the president and desired to see him. As Is waa long after the hours when visitors are received the officer declined to permit him to go to the house. The man Insisted, but the officer turned him away. Soon after Weilbrenner returned and again insisted that he be allowed to see the president, if only for a minute. This time he wa Bordered away and warned not to return. Came Back a Third Tims. Just before 11 o'clock the man returned a third time and demanded of the officer that he be permitted to see the president at once. The officer's response was to take him from his buggy and put him in the stables where he was placed under the guard of two stablemen. A revolver was found in the buggy. Later Weilbrenner was brought to the village and locked up. He is five feet eight inches tall, twenty eight years old, has a mustache and black eyes, and evidently Is of German descent. He resides la Syosset, about five miles in land from Oyster Bay. He was well dressed in a suit of dark material and wore an old fashioned derby hat. He Had Confederates. It is thought by the officers that eWil brenner was accompanied by two other men, as their footprints were found in the mud alongside of the buggy tracks. ' In view of this fact the officer on duty tel ephoned to the village for assistance, and was soon Joined by two other secret ser vice meni While eWiibrenner talked rationally to the officers last night, it seems evident from his conversation to-day that he is demented. He said that he had received a telegraphic communication from the president directing him to call at Saga -jimore Hill. Weilbrenner's buggy waa taken to a local livery barn. When asked what had become of the rig, Weilbrenner replied: !((- POST REVEALS DODBLE MURDER Farmer and His Wife KilledAu thorities Are Informed Thru the Mail. Ifow York Bun Special Servio. Warrenton, Mo., Sept. 2."Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Yeater have bin killed, pleas report." This message, found in a mail box a few hundred yards from the Yeater farm by Otto Gugemous, a rural carrier, was the first information of a double murder. Thet writing in the note is deolared by friends to be that of William E. Church, an adopted son of the Yeaters. The young man Is missing. Gugemous first showed the note to several persons in the Yeater neighbor hood, all of -^hom thought It a jest. Mar shal Morsey, a friend of the Yeaters, thought the matter serious enough, however, to demand an investigation, and Immediately sent a messenger to the Yeaters' home. The messenger, accom panied by a number of neighbors, went to the house, and upon opening the bed room door found the couple murdered. The throats of both had been cut and the woman apparently had struggled for her life. The only other member of the house hold la Church, the adopted son, aged 22, who has not been seen by any of the neighbors since Sunday afternoon. When Church left the house he ap parently took all his wearing apparel. In an adjoining room on the floor were four empty shells from a revolver. It is known that Yeater owned such a revol- j ver, and this also is missing. It is known J that Yeager recently cashed a pension check, and several days ago sold some Tiay, for which he received cash. His pocketbook containing the money and such other cash as he had on hand is missing, probably taken by the murderer. WIFE SHOT BY DEAF MUTE They Quarreled in a Written Con- versationMan Is Placed t Mp.j * v*V *- "Oh. The president has taken care of It That's all rlRht." Weilbrenner Is thought by those who have seen him to be a dangerous lunatic At Syosset it is learned that the man is the son of a truck farmer and is one of three brothers. He has two sisters. The family is respectable and is held in general esteem. Weilbrenner several years ago had, a nervous attack which rendered him men tally helpless for a day or two but his family supposed that he had been quite restored by the medical treatment he re ceived at tnat time. Since then he has manifested no symptoms of mental ab beration. He had no socialistic or an archistic tendencies so far as known, never having been interested in any ques tions of that kind. He was employed daily on his father's farm. The Man Is Crazy. Weilbrenner was arraigned to-day be fore Justice Franklin on a complaint of the secret service operatives, who placed him under arrest. Weilbrenner's brother William was present at the examination. Justice Franklin questioned the prisoner about his movements last night. His re plies were made in a quiet tone of voice but they indicated, apparently beyond a doubt, that the man is crazy. Asked why he went to Sagamore Hill, he replied: "I went to see the president about his daughter, Alice." "Had you an engagement with the pres ident?" "Yes." "How was that engagement made?" "I talked with the president last night," replied Weilbrenner. "How did you talk with him?" "Oh, I just talked." "A sort of wireless talk, was it?" "Yes, that is it, a wireless talk." "Why did you want to see the presi dent about Miss Alice?" Wanted to Marry Alice. "I wanted to marry her." "Did you ever see Miss Roosevelt?" "Yes, I saw her night before last." "Where did you see her?" "At my house." "Did she go over there?" "Yes, she came In a red automobile." "Who accompanied her?" , "Her brother, Theodore." Justice Franklin after the examina tion, concluded he would hold Weilbrenner until an inquiry of lunacy could be held upon his case. The examination then was postponed until 5 o'clock this afternoon. NO WIND FOB RACES The Third Eace in the America's Cup Series IB Again Postponed. New York, Sept. 2.To-day's attempt to sail the third race of the America's cup series was but a repetition of yesterday and the suspense is prolonged still an other day. Under far less favorable conditions than prevailed yesterday morning, the yachts to-day went out to the starting line under tow. There was no wind and a heavy fog. The. yachts hung - about the lightship. They did not drop their tows, and -their sails hung limp from the rigging. Both boats waited until 10:30, when the race was declared off. The yachts were then towed back to the Hook, the few excursionists returned to the city. There will be a race to-morrow. Sir Thomas Llpton to-day emphatically denied that if there was any chance for Shamrock III. he would depose Captain Wringe and put the yacht under control of Mate Bevis, and that Shamrock was found too long after her speedy trials and in bringing her up to the proper measure ment she had been stripped so much as to lose her speed. Sir Thomas declared that he had perfect faith in his designer and his captain and crew. Tinder Arrest.

New York, Sept. 2.Mrs. Mary Lange, once wealthy, is dead from carbolic acid poisoning, at a Brooklyn hospital. Sev eral years ago, her husband died, leaving her a fortune and a handsome home in Williamsburg. * She began to give help to all sorts of unfortunate families and as the appeals for aid multiplied her fortune disappeared. Her home was lost thru the foreclosure of a mortgage and finally she was driven to seek assistance from those she had helped. Most of these persons are said to have turned her away and, as she was too old to procure employment, she cpmmitted suicide. climbingd overk 1 roof of his house was dragge bac by detectives.

DEWEY ADVISES I A BIGGER NAfY Says Our Present Naval Force Is Not Sufficient for Our Needs. - .'- . -. Kerr York Sun Special Servio*. New York, Sept. 2.Admiral George Dewey has not an altogether exalted opin ion - ' of the United States navy as com pared with the war fleets of some of the European powers. He has written his views for the Navy League Journal and has taken the summer maneuvers of the fleet at Bar Harbor for his basis of com parison with those of Great Britain, France and Germany. He says this government is really defl ent in naval fighting strength, and that popular newspaper artioles on this sub ject are misleading and distorting. He urges that these wrong impressions be corrected thru a propaganda by the Navy League to demonstrate the real fighting value of these American warships and to ,,******'*. "Uncle SamSay, Young Feller, Tm Not Making Any Promises About Catching You, You Know. point the moral for "the possession of better ones before the fighting moment arrives." "We must have a navy," says Admiral Dewey, "for bur own protection, and it rests with the Navy League to instill this idea into the minds of all citizens until the pressure of public opinion gives us such a navy as Is needed for the coun try's prestige and safety. "The British fleetthat which is at home waters alone forming but a frac tion of the British navy which would be available as an evolutionary squadron includes thirty battleships and thirty cruisers. The home French fleet includes sixteen battleships and eleven cruisers the home fleet of Germany eight battle ships and five cruisers. "Of course, we are doing the best we can, but the Navy League should not al low the people In general to be deceived, and above all things, should impress upon them the necessity of our having a fleet that will oombine all the various elements of naval strength." CONFESSION WAS BOGUS Chicago Police Have Not Yet Dis covered Perpetrators of Street Railway Hold-up. New York Sun Special Bervioe. Chicago, Sept. 2.John Sluders' "con fession" Is a tissue of lies. The Chicago police department has gathered sufficient evidence to prove that it was false from beginning to end. Late last night Sluder himself coolly de clared that he had lied all the way thru and Chief O'Neill was forced to admit that his men are no nearer the capture of the gang that held up and murdered the Chicago street railway company's em ployes Sunday morning than they have been since the deed was committed. Last night, when the police officials felt certain they had the ringleader of the gang In custody, Sluders denial fell like a thunderbolt. Early in the evening the police arrested Charley Malski, whose pic ture Sluder had Identified as the leader of the men who committed the robbery and murder. "Who is this?" asked Chief O'Neill as soon as Sluder was brought into the'room where Malski was standing. Sluder looked well at Iftalski before he answered: "I do hot know him." Chief,..O'Neill wheeled like a flash and glared at Sluder, who met his gaze withr out wincing. "Then (what WOULDN'T ELOPE SO HE SHOT-HER New York Han Kills Woman Who Refused to Run Away With Him.

The double tragedy occurred at Edson's home almost in the presence of Edson's wife and brother. To-day he was to vacate and leave the city for a short time. Acocrding to the police Edson had begged Mrs. Pullen to lope with him. Dr. Edson told his-brother that he A- weU-equiped eye sanitarium will soon be traveling thru Egypt laaa teat.

The gate receipts at the state fair yes terday aggregated $18,663.15 or about $4,000 more than was taken in on the second day of last year's fair. Thus far the cash recipts ' from admissions alone have been $83,713.65 or about $11,000 more than for the first two days of the phenom enally successful fair of 1902, which was a record-breaker as to crowds. J M,M A WARNING WWWM! should be ashamed to make such a propo sition in the presence of his wife. Townsend Edson became wildly excited and could not be calmed. He kept en treating Mrs. Pullen to leave the house with him and go to another state, but she refused. When Woods, a furniture man, entered the house, he says he saw Townsend Edson point his revolver toward Mrs. Pullen and heard him say to her: - "You must go with me. If you don't elope with me I'll see that you go with me anyway." Then Townsend fired two shots In quick succession. The first struck Mrs. Pullen In the forehead, and the second In the cheek. Mrs. Pullen ran a few steps, when she fell. ! Edson then turned the revolver at himself, firing two shots. The first shot went thru his head, the second entered the left breast near the heart. He dropped to the floor his head falling aoross the woman's feet. Both died almost instantly. The murderer and suicide was Henry Townsend Edson, aged 39 years, a brother of former Mayor Franklin Edsori. Edson is said to have been insanely Jealous of the woman. The shooting occurred almost before the very eyes of Dr. David O. Edson. the suicide's brother, his .wife, Mrs. Henry L. Edson, and a baggage mover, named Thomas.,. The families/of Henry Townsend Edson and Dr. Edson have lived together In their house on Ninety-second street for a number of months. Recently Henry Townsend Edson had quarreled with his wife and he finally decided that he would leave her. He had sent for Mrs. Pullen, who was a friend of the family, and she came to the house, not knowing what was wanted. Mrs. Pullen and Dr. Edson Were seated about the dining-room table. Edson is said to have told his wife he could not live with her any longer and to. have said that it would be better if they separated. This request was refused by Mrs. Edson and the approaching trouble was quieted for the time. Suddenly, .it is said, Edson turned to Mrs. Pullen in the presence of his wife and his brother, and asked her to go away with him- to some other state where they could be happy. Mrs. Pullen indignantly refused the pro posal and turned away from Edson. Dr. Edson severely reprimanded his brother for making any such remarks, and then left the room with Mrs. Edson. Almost Immediately afterwards the shooting oc curred. Mrs. Pullen was the wife of John F. Pullen, an auditor at the Grand "Central station. She had two children. Mrs. Pul len and Mrs. Edson had been intimate friends for several years. Coroner Jack son, after an investigation, said: "The evidence from my investigation shows that the murder and suicide was premedlated. "H Have. found letters and other papers in Edson's possession in the house that show that he had had a love affair." When, asked If the "love affair" was with Mrs. Pullen, the coroner said he could not answer, but spoke as if it was not. , M , SCOTT PICKS FLAW Morris Law Does Not Pay the In f dians for the 5 Per Cent Pine Reserved. Recommendations Made by Major Scott in His Annual Report to Washington. From The Journal Bureau, Boom 45, Post Build ing, Washington. Washington, Sept. 2.Major George L. Scott, agent at Leech lake, makes several important recommendations in his annual report,"which has just been received by Commissioner Jones. In dis cussing the provisions of the Morris act, he suggests that there has b een an omis sion in the laws, a failure to provide for payment to the Indians of the value of the 5 per cent of standing timber left In the forest reserve. Major Scott says: "The terms of the bill provide for set ting aside ten sections of pine timber land, which will not be cut also for re serving 5 per cent of all the pine remainder of the forest reserve for the purpose of re-forestation. The wisdom of this act of the. general government is readily conceded by all, but no provision has been made for reimbursing the In dians for the pine thus withheld from sale and appropriated by the general govern ment for its forest reserve. "The law provides that the Indians shall be paid for pine upon their ceded lands when disposed of and they are clearly entitled to be reimbursed for the timber thus withheld. The amount and value of the timber can be readily deter mined when the 95 per cent of the pine is cut and sold. The ten sections not cut over should be carefully estimated and payment made based upon the estimate and price of timber on adjacent lands. "I would also recommend that the pine on Indian allotments on ceded lands, the cutting of which is not provided for by the Morris act, be cut when the pine is taken from the territory in which they are situated." Major Scott again calls attention to the prevalence of drunkenness on the reservation. He says the traffic has been checked materially in certain localities, but "a great deal is still sold to the In dians and will be sold until aH United States officials, whose duty it is to enforce the laws, take enough interest.to re port and prosecute all cases known to them and until the community at.large Is taught that it is a .crlme^'''- v.* ,^ W, Jei'mane.

Territorial Pioneers Hold the Center of the Stage To-dayJudges of thfl County Displays Are Expected to Render Their Verdict To-morrow Demonstration Lectures at the Federation Building Attract Much Attention. ^ In spite of rainy weather the attendance at the state fair to-day promised to bo fairly large. At noon the turnstile record at the Minneapolis gate showed 8,686, and that at the St. Paul gate 8,710, a total of 17,296. It was estimated that the total for the day would go over 30.000. Last year's Wednesday's attendance was 47.219. This was a record-breaker, but it would probably have been surpassed to day had the weather been favorable. A few years ago 80,000 wouldhave been a big attendance, but this year? it promises to be the smallest of the week. Yesterday's total attendance. 41.515, was 2,885 oyer last year's Minenapolis day, which was Friday. It is 4,787 more than the attendance on Tuesday of last year, which was St. Paul day. But for the slight rain last nij^ht, yesterday's total would undoubtedly have been even larger. As the total for the first two days of the week was about 12,000 more than last year, it is still almost certain that last year's total for the week will be surpassed. The rain to-day may bring the attendance for the first three days slightly under last year, but this, weather favoring, will be easily made up in the last half of the week. . Competition for the Best Display Ic Very Keen Thla Year. Twelve counties are entered for the county prizes, which aggregate $1,200. There are six cash prizes of $200, $150, $100, $75, .$50 and $25. The winner of the first prize also receives $200 In added money. There are six special prizes ranging from $60 to $20 for design and taste in the arrangementof the booths. The judges of the county displays are Professor J. H. Shepherd of the North Dakota agricultural college, at Fargo, and Professors Green and Cady of the Min nesota agricultural college. Houston county won the first prize last : on the yA MEETING OF PIONEERS More Than a Hundred Attend Exercises in the Log Cabin. Rain and the Territorial Pioneers came to the fair grounds together this morning, but did not receive the same sort of wel come. Everyone was glad to see the ven erable white-bearded men and the gray haired, motherly women whose lives are part of the history of the early days of the state, and all sought to honor them. When the old Concord coach which suc ceeded the Red River carts and preceded the steam cars In handling the transpor tation business between the hamlets of St. Paul and. St. Anthony, drove up to the pioneers' log cabin from Minneapolis, there were more than a hundred of the old timers on hand to welcome the still hardy men and women who had braved the rain and weather in order to take another ride In the historical old coach.' Its arrival was the chief event of the day, aside from, the evercises held in the institute hall adjoining the log cabin. No program had been prepared but Presi dent E: W. Durant of Stillwater, who had charge of the meeting, called for re marks from Loren Fletcher, Edwin Clark, George H. Hazzard and others of the old boys. Among the oldest of the pioneers at the reunion were the following from the 40's: Edward Patch, St. Anthony, 1847 A. M. Parker, St. Anthony, 1848 Eli Pettijohn, Washburn park, 1841 Philip Bardeon, St. Paul, 1849 Oliver Pearsons, Minneapolis, 1849 Mary M. Bolles, Stillwater, 1841 Joseph L. Gulon, St. Paul, 1845 Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Tinker, St. Paul, 1848 Frank lin C. Ford, Red Rock, 1844 Captain John Tappe, St. Anthony, 1844. Together with the old setlers came the second generation of pioneers, who are organized as the Native Sons of Minne sota association. To-day they made their first appearance in public. Membership Is limited to natives of the state who are 35 or over. It is not intended to be a boys' society, but an organization of se rious and earnest men who will labor for all the interests of the state and preserve its history and honor. The members of the lower house of the state legislature, of whom there are three score or more on the grounds, also held a reunion in the institute hall and re called incidents of the Duluth trip of last winter. At the afternoon meeting of the pioneers a feature was the singing of a state hymn, composed by Moses K. Armstrong of St. James, a member of the Pioneers' asso ciation. The hymn was first sung at the dedication of the new school building at St. James. TWELVE COUNTIES ENTER R TO-HTGHT A1I1) THUES - * SUOIc. IY. .

The visitors at the federation bulldln** got some valuable pointers this morninft on making smart and perfect-fitting shirt wa'ists of the most up-to-dat* model. The demonstration .lesson was given by Mrs. Margaret Blair. She gave directions first form aklng a general shlrtj waist pattern that will serve as a basis, for every garment of that class. In or-( der to "secure the long-waisted, pouchedi French effect now so popular, together with perfection of fit In the back, under1 the arms, and about the shoulders and1 neck, she showed the audience a.,trick.' The same pattern is used and the back is exactly the same. In cutting the front,i the neck is cut with the pattern straight,1 with the woof of the cloth and .the under arm portion and bottom Is out with th** pattern in this position. This gives thsj extra fullness and length of waist. The shoulder Is shaped after the pattern In US, original position. The trim smoothness ofj the under arm and the easy feeling of the garment is secured by a horizontal dart Just at the waist line, from the sids' seam as far forward as it is needed. Mrs. Blair illustrated the value of her model by wearing a very trim and attract-, lve shirt waist, and she also fitted a model on a stout woman to show that fullness In the right place Is becoming rather than! otherwise, especially in combination wltnl the long straight lines drawn in at th* waist line. , , The exhibits in the building are selected, and are of unusual interest and fine qual ity. In the arts and crafts exhibits, Miss Tuzette Roberts has a dozen water- colors of flowers and landscapes, and Krlstlana Engibro has a group. of designs in color. .'..,.'
