Savage, owner of Dan Patch, will receive $6,500 for his horse's work Mon day. When the negotiations were made, Mr. Savage a&ked for $2,000, but the man agement preferred a percentage basis, and a deal was accordingly made that in case that the receipts from day admissions and grand stand tickets did not exceed those of last year the owner was to have noth ing, but he was to get 80 per cent, of the increase up to $3,250 and 50 per cent of the balance. . Mr. Savage spent over $8,000 in advertis ing the.event but even at that he came out far ahead as the increase in paid admis sions exceeded all expectations. Reports are current to the effect that Mr. Savage .was dissatisfied, but as far as can be learned there is no foundation for the re port. Secretary Randall of the State Fair association says that no complaint of any kind has been made by Mr. Savage. Mr. Ravage could not be found to-day. Guests at Journal Building.

Revolutionists Threaten Reprisals Unless the Turkish Commanders Check Barbarity of Troops. CHEKIB BEY, Turkish Minister at Washington. Sofia, Bulgaria, Sept. 2.The Macedo nian revolutionaries awaited the anniver sary of the sultan's accession to proclaim the long-anticipated general insurrection in northern Macedonia. The proclamation was issued yesterday and was signed by all the members of the insurgent general staff. The new outbreak is headed by the fa mous Macedonian leaders, General Zont chieff, president of the Macedonian com mittee, and Colonel Jankoff, who was wounded in the rising of 1872. The new territory covers the district in the valley of the Struma at the base of the Rhodope mountain chain and to the north of the River Vardad, Colonel Jank off is directing the movements of the bands in the southern part. News of se vere fighting is still coming in. At the village of Armensi, after a day's fighting, the Turkish troops in the night time massacred the entire population Of 180 men and 200 women. The Turks also have massacred the inhabitants of the village of Velesi. The insurgent leader Grueff, in a letter to Hilmi Pasha, demanded that he pre vent the barbarous acts of the soldiers and bashl-eazouks and threatened that unless this was done the revolutionaries would massacre all the Turkish inhabi tants. THE TURKISH VERSION The Porte Reiterates Story of a "Feu de Jole." Washington, Sept. 2.Chekib Bey, the Turkish minister, has received from the minister of foreign affairs at Constanti nople a dispatch giving the Turkish ver sion of the attempt on the life of Vice Consul Magelssen. It is practically the same as has been told before in the dis patches from Turkey. "It says that the pis tol was fired by a man returning from a marriage fete, the shot was fired in the air and that it happened just as Mr. Ma gelssen was passing in his carriage. This, the dispatch says, led the vice consul to believe that an attempt had been made against his life. The man who did the shooting has been delivered to the judicial authorities. Chekib Bey's dispatch also asserts that order and tranquillity prevail at Beirut. The information contained in the cable gram has been fumlshea ta Minister Leishmann at Constantinople by the Turk ish minister of foreign affairs and to Sec retary Hay by the Turkish minister here. TO DESTROY BRIDGES Revolutionists Plan to Cut Off Turks From Constantinople, Sept. 2.According to government advices Colonel Jankoff, the insurgent leader, who is with a strong force operating southwards of Demotyka, has been entrusted with the task of de stroying the larger bridges of the railroad running from Dedeagatch on the south coast, to Kuleli Burgas, over the Marltza and Arda rivers, so as to cut off communi cation with Adrlanople from the south and delay_ the troops who are on their way to the threatened city. The government believes it has taken measures which will bring about a speedy and, it is hoped, decisive battle with the insurgent forces commanded by Colonel Jankoff. Palace officials were in constant communication with the authorities at Adrlanople thruout Monday, formulating plans to master the situation in the vil layet. Constantinople Illuminated. The crowds which witnessed last night's illuminations here in honor of the anni versary of the accession of the sultan were not so large as usuai. The palace recently has been exercising great severity towards the Mussulmans suspected of inciting trouble in the dis turbed vlllayets, and has arrested and banished large numbers. While the Rus sian squadron was in Iniada Bay no less^ than 142 Mussulmans were expelled on ac- | count of. their unconcealed hostility to Russia. No Decision Reached. Washington, Sept. 2.The administra tion has come to no decision regarding the disposition to be made of the American warships now sailing to Beirut. Whether the Brooklyn and San Francisco remain in Turkisli waters will depend entirely upon the report Minister Leishman makes concerning the situation In Turkey and the necessity for warships to protect American Interests. Minister Lelshman's complete report will reach Washington about the time of the arrival of the squadron in Turkish waters. Porte Breaks Promises. Sofia, Bulgaria, Sept. 2.The Bulgarian agent at Uskub reports that notwith standing the porte's promises, on the oc casion of the Russian demonstration in Iniada Bay to dismiss twenty-four of ficials accused of malpractices by the Rus sian and Austrian consuls, .only nine of them have been dismissed some of them have been given higher posts. ^ Y0TJNGER SHOW BREAKS UP "The Younger Brothers,, Bank Rob bers" Come to Grief.

Hard to Tell When They Buy Just What They, Are Going to Get. Speoial to The Journal, Winnipeg, Man., Sept. 2.Sidney Hum phries, a British miller and grain buyer, is among the British delegates to the con gress who visited Winnipeg yesterday and advantage was taken of the opportunity to obtain from him answers to some Of the qeustions that have been puzzling Manitoba grain growers. 'What is the trouble with our wheat as it appears on your market?" Mr. Hum phries was asked. The trouble is that when we buy Mani toba No. 1 hard we do not know what we will get. Three lots may be very good and a fourth much inferior. Perhaps no two may be of equal value. Sometimes there is a difference of 6d or more between the values of the two lots. "The people of Canada should insist that their certificates represent quality, and that no Inferior wheat goes on the British market with a No. 1 hard certificate, and that all wheat comes up to the standard. "The only way you can control the quality of your wheat is by shipping thru Canadian channels. The inspection of grain imported from the United States is unsatisfactory. Your government can con trol the quality of grades of wheat shipped in that way it cannot control what is done with it in the United States. "You will see from this dispatch in the New York Herald that a convention of European grain buyers has protested against the unsatisfactory character of the grain. And here is an interview with a Chicago inspector who admits that the oharge is well grounded." The customs receipts at Winnipeg for August aggregated $242,627.13. The rev enue received in the Winnipeg office for August in 1902, was only $165,853.23. The general tax is not in the least responsible for the immense increase of the last month's revenue over that of the same month in the past year. The customs of ficials give as the sole reason of this in crease the large expansion of trade pass ing thru the port of Winnipeg. GOV. JELKS OH PEONAGE Alabama's Executive Addresses a Message on the Subject to the Legislature. New York Sun Special Service. Montgomery, Ala., Sept. 2.Severe cen sure of the practice of peonage and the persons concerned in peonage cases, re cently brought to light in this state, is contained in a message Governor Jelks has sent to the legislature. The governor says: "In at least one locality in Alabama several farmers have been working men and women under guard without legal au thority to do so. One or more of these offenders have been sinners for a dozen years. They have acted without the shadow of right and have been plain vio lators of the state laws. The offense has been notorious In the community and these criminals long since should have been inmates of the penitentiary.' "That good people surrounding^them al low a persistence in this evil doing has focused on the whole state the attention of malevolent critics. These farmer-con tractors had helpers in compliant justices and constables. The latter were more guilty than the principles.' They basely betrayed a solemn trust." In conclusion tbe governor expresses gratification that the offenders have been brought to justice. WANT THAT MONEY Bankers Apply to Secretary Shaw for Increased Deposits. New York Sun Speoial Servioe. Washington, Sept. 2 National banks all over the country are anxious to get part of the $40,000,000 which Secretary Shaw has set aside to deposit this fall in the event of a monetary stringency. The sec retary has no intention of increasing the deposits in the banks, however, unless it becomes apparent that the demand for currency for moving the crops cannot be met without forcing interest rates up to an abnormally high level. Many bank ers have assumed that there is no ques tion about the money being put out. Banks that are now depositories are sending in applications for increased de posits and other banks are asking to be designated as depositories. Many of the declarations are accompanied by letters approving the action of the secretary in setting aside the fund, and expressing the opinion that it will result in the crop moving season being tided over this year without any disastrous stringency.

Washington, Sept. 2.The civil service commission has decided that a constant diet of glass, tacks, brass watch chains, frogs, soap, collar buttons, wire nails, broken china and belt buckles renders a man unfit to hold a government situa tion, and ordered that the. name of Lee W. Wright, better known as the "Human Ostrich," be dropped from the - eligible list. The case was brought to the attention of the civil service commissioners by the complaint of P. D. Baker, postmaster at Mobile, Ala., who refused to recommend Wright, who headed the eligible list of the Mobile postofflce, for a place under him, and asked the commission how he was to avoid making the appointment. The postmaster said he thought a man who had three square meals a day and carried around an assortment of the above mentioned articles for his refreshment be tween breakfast and dinner and supper, was a crank, and he did not want him around the office. The commission took the same view and dropped Wright.

It is by a change of diet that one can get fairly on the road to health after years of sickness, for most ill health comes from improper feeding. What a boon it Is to shake off coffee sickness and nervous headaches as some can if determined upon. One woman accomplished it in this way: "A few years ago I suffered terribly from sick and nervous headaches, being fre quently confined to my bed two or three days at a time, the attacks coming on from one to four times in every month. I tried medicines of all kinds, but could get no real relief until my parents finally persuaded me to quit the use of coffee al together and try Postum Food Coffee. It had come to a point where I was so utterly miserable that I wa willing to make any reasonable trial. "A person couldn't believe what fol lowed, but the results speak for them selves that was two and a half years ago and I have never tasted coffee since. I use Postum not only for Its delicious flavor, but more for the good it has done me. All of my troubles disappeared as If by magic and I have for the past two years been doing all the work for my family of six. I seldom have even a slight headache and I would not give up my Postum and go back to coffee now un less I deliberately intended to commit suicide. "All of my neighbors, it seems to roe, now U8e Postum in place of coffee and ,t some of them have been doing so for.* several years with splendid results fromi'-'( the health point of view."
