Winona, Minn . Sept 2 Congressman Tawney
and a party of fourteen, including bis wife and
daughter and several Winona gentlemen and
their wives, and Mr and Mrs L. P Hunt, of
Mankato, have returned from a trtp to Alaska of
a month's duration Southeastern Alaska A\as
the portion of the country visited After ai
itvlag at Skagway by steamer from Seattle, the
party went over the White Pass railway to the
headwaters of the Yukon at Lake Bennet, where,
la contrast with 10,000 people at the time the
gold erase broke out, there are now onlj a sta
tion, a 1 allway eating-house and a few shanties
The party did not go down the Yukon, but re
turned to Skagway and went trora there by
steamer to Shekan, where foui days were spent.
In one day, in a single seine, while the party
was there, the Indians caught 13,000 salmon.
Congressman Tawney said
"On Sunday, Aug 16, the day after our
arrival at Shekan, our entire party attended the
Indian church, and we were all very much sur
prised as well as gratified not only at the at
tendance, but with the fact that they had ex
cellent music furnished by young male Indians

Altho the sawmill heie has been in operation for
nineteen years, the timber that has been taken
out of these forests is scarcely noticeable.
Within a hundred yards from the edge of the

lumbermen of the part}, measured four feet or
more in dlametei and stood fiom sixty to a

Campaign Plans of Governor Cum
mins Are Not to Be Inter- '
f ered With.
"Lafe" Young, Chief of the "Stand
patters," Finds It Inconvenient
to Be Present.
Special to The Journal.
Des Moines, Iowa, Sept 2 Jowa political lead
ers, at a conference held this afternoon at the
Savery House, decided to launch the state cam
paign with a monster rally, on Sept. 10, in Des
Moines. Governor Cummins will himself fire the
first gun.
The conference bids fair to be harmonious.
Somewhat of a damper was thrown upon the
enthusiasm of republican leaders this morning
by the announcement that Senator Allison can
not attend. He is represented by his secretary,
A F. Dawson, who will hate charge of the cam
paign speaking bureau.
Preceding the conference it was said even by
anti-Cummins men that, out of courtesy for the
head of the ticket, the opponents of the present
political regime, and more particularly of Mr.
Cummlna' tariff revision sentiment, would not
laise any disturbance in the conference. Lafo
Young, leader of the "stand patters," left Sat
urday evening for New York, and his departure
on the eve of the conference is taken as the best
of evidence that Governor Cummins will have no
opposition whatever to his* campaign plans.
Every congressman except Judge Wade, the
democratic member from the Second, is present.
Many candidates for representative and senato
rial positions are on hand. To arouse enthu
siasm, the Cummins men will appeal for help
from all sources to roll up another 100,000 ma
jority. It will be urged that the state needs
such a showing to give it proper prestige in the
next republican national convention, into which
the governor and his friends purpose to carry
their tariff reform ideas.

Fraternal Insnranoe Company.
This city is to become the fountain head of an
other fraternal insurance company, which, by the
consolidation of several other small companies,
has the promise of a large membership at the
outset. It is to be known as the Fraternal
Bond of Des Moines, with its headquarters here,
and will write its members death and disability
benefits Among the incorporators are some of
the most experienced men in the west, and it is
said that within twenty-four hours after the
business is launched several fraternal bodies In
Iowa and other statesone in Minnesotawill
turn their membership over to it. The su
preme lodge is to meet quadriannually, the first
meeting to be in January, 1907. Until that
time it is to be managed by five directors The
officers are. Supreme president, C. S. Byrkit
supreme vice president, R. Gibson treasurer,
John Ii Crawford, secietary, N. W. Richmond.
Senator C C Dowell has been appointed re
ceiver of the German of the Mutual Insurance
company, of this city* by Judge James A. Howe,

ney General Mullen, who says the company was

B F. Loose, and the other officers, restraining
them from issuing policies or receiving moneys,
is continued in force.

India While in India she was called as the
attending physician fort son of the Prince

treatment that he retained her as the physician

A Unique Organization.
Probably nowhere else in the country is there
an organization with the scheme of government
in vogue like that of the Polk County Republican
Club, under whose auspices the republican cam
paign is to be launched Sept. 19.
The officers are elected by the members, but
the power of the body lies within the hands of
a board of directors consisting of thirty mem
bers. Five are selected each year, for a term
of five years, to serve upon the board. By this
means the new members ate sd much In the
minority that they are brought to understand
the methods of the body before they became a
part of the power The board elects its own
chairman. The president of the club only pre
sides at the meetings of the club as a whole
The peculiarity of the club Is in the fact that
directors are not elected by the members. They
are selected by the directors. When vacancies
occur each year the board selects carefully from
the club the men who It is believed win be the
best for the place This election is held at a
time of the year when no political campaign is
being carried on, and when It would not be of
any person's personal interest to become a mem
ber at that time. No director can be an office
holder or an office seeker In city, county, state
or national politics The announcement of can
didacy for office Is accepted as an immediate
resignation from the board.
The club Is incorporated for the advancement
of the science of political economy, of friendly
and social relations among the members, to exert
an influence and do service in behalf of good
governmentlocal, state ^and nationaland to
promote the growth and spread of patriotism
and republican principles.' The membership -fee
is but $1 a year, so that every person who de
sires may become a member. There are now
about 1,000 members.

Governor White has gone to Valley City to
open the chicken hunting season, but gave out
nothingvmore with regard to the extra session be
fore his departure. Ho is getting the sentiment
of the members of the legislature and public
men generally. Nothing definite is settled upon
yet, but the fact that hanks thru the state will
not take the securities of the institutions in their
present shape indicates that the extra session is
likely to be called.
Alexander McKenzle has been spending a few

Something-for Gokey,
J. J. Gokey of Dawson, one of the best known

Roosevelt for the position of chief gamekeeper
of Yellowstone Park. Gokey is well known to
every eastern hunter who has enjoyed duck shoot
lng at Dawson, which, is the Mecca for duck
hunters of all parts of the country.
When President Roosevelt's special train
nassed thru North Dakota last spring President
Mellen of the Northern Pacific requested Gokey
to get two Canada geese and a string of ducks
for the presidential party. Geese are difficult
to get in the spring, being wary after their expe

the party went thru he presented two fine big

stated they will demand some concessions if they
stand for the institution appropriations. It is
unlikely the report Is true. Such a procedure
would prove a boomerang and the shrewdest
of the resubmissionists no doubt realize this is
the case.

over Cass county,, and finds there la a lot jf
diseased flax The damage by flax wilt will run
from 10 to 90 per cent. In one field that had

the loss will be almost total The soil Is thor

take some years to eradicate It by farming the
land to cultivated crops.
Professor Manns reports some progress in the
development of the Immune flax. The work is
necessarily slow, but the results of the inves

and he expects ultimately that the college will
succeed in the development of an immune plant.

Superior Shocked by the Vlndlctlvenew
of Its Boy Murderer.
SUPERIOR, WIS.Arthur Sherman, the 16-
year-old boy charged with the murder of Howard
Gilbert, was bound over for trial to the present
term of the superior court. The boy waived
examination upon the advice of his counsel, State
Senator George B. Hudnall,
Tbo fact that examination was waived and that
the defense allowed the ltoy to be bound oyer
makes strong the belief that Insanity will be the
plea of the defense The attorney stated that he
understood it would be easy to prove Insanity
in the family.
The police and public are mystified by the ac
tion of the boy. He calmly talks of his crime
the most atrocious that has ever occurred
in Superior. It was a cold-blooded affair in
every way, deliberately planned and premedi
tated, according to the boy's own statements.
And yet he sat in the courtroom the cynosure of
hundreds of eyes, unmoved and seemingly satis
fied that be had had his revenge. He was not
disturbed by the fact that bis victim's wife is
in a serious condition as a result of shock.

Special to The Journal.
Butte, Mont., Sept. 2.Two suits of John
MacGinnls against the Boston and Montana Min
ing company have been called for hearing In
Judge Clancey's court. These are big injunc

MacGinnls, who is one of the officers in Heinze's
United Copper company, who alleged he was a
stockholder of that company and sought to en
Join the company from completing the transfer
of Its plant and business to the Amalgamated
The suit upon which a hearing was begun was
against the Boston and Montana and Amalga
mated Company and their officers, and it was in
stituted July 81, 1901. About a year ago Judge
Clancy granted a temporary injunction pending
the litigation. Thereby the Boston and Montana
company was enjoined from further allowing
any of its shares of stock being transferred
to the ownership and possession of the Amalga
mated company, and during that time the Boston
and Montana company has been restrained from
paying any dividends upon the stock of the cor
poration that had already been transferred to
the Amalgamated company.
For months the hearing of the injunction suits
has been delayed thru motions for continuances
that have been interposed from time to time by
the attorneys for Plaintiff MacGinnls. The
motions were granted by the court, the objec
tion of the attorneys for the Boston and Montana
company, who desired the suits to proceed, being
overruled The continuances were sought on
the representation of the attorneys for Mac
trinnis that they wished to secure certain depo
sitions from the east before proceeding trial.
