i The First Premium Coachers.
The usual thing happened yesterday
When McLaughlin Brothers won all the
premiums with their French stallions. For
the past ten years McLaughlin Brothers
have exhibited coachers at all the leading
state fairs and horse shows, including the
Chicago horse show, and the Madison
Square Garden horse show in Ne w York,
and they have always taken all the firsts.
' It is the aim of McLaughlin Brothers
to buy, In France, none but the very best,
ajnd this year they were fortunate enough
to get a number that had been reserved
for the government. Among these was
the celebrated four-year-old French
coacher, Vauban.
- Vauban is considered the highest acting
a,nd most beautiful coach stallion that ever
left France and he easily won the first
prize in the largest field of coach stallions
that has ever been exhibited at the Min
nesota State Fair.
' At the Ohio state fair, which is also
being held this week at Columbus, Mc
Laughlin Brothers won every first prize,
both In draft and In coach stallions. The
Twin Cities are to be congratulated upon
having a firm .of such wide reputation and
enterprise, locate here, where people can
yisit their stables, at Midway, at any time
and see the prize winners.

KISS COST HIM DEAR
Venturesome Sailor Attempts to
Steal One and Is Beaten Into
Uncosiousness.
New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Sept. 4.John Nulty, a dis
charged sailor, attempted to hug and kiss
pretty Fourtlnto Larlto, 14 years old, in
Madison Square last evening. She was in
the company of her two sisters and the
trio were listening to the band concert.
When the unwise tar started to do the
kissing act, the girl's screams brought
every woman in the park rushing over to
where the child was struggling in the
man's grasp.
The three sisters began to strike Nulty
With their fists and he went down in a
heap with more than 100 of the women
who had come to the rescue piled on him.
They scratched and tore at his face and
when he attempted to ilse, kicked him in
the face and on the body.
The Larlto girls, who had sharp little
heels on their boots, stamped the man In
the face.
Men in the crowd tried- to get in to
Nulty as he yelled for mercy, but the
women waved them back, saying that
they would attend to him. Officers finally
fought their way thru the mob of women
and found Nulty unconscious. While the
officers were trying to revive him the
women tore his clothing into tatters and
scratched and tore his already bruised
and bleeding face. Finally some of the
men took a hand and advised the women
to let the police arrest the man.
When Nulty got to the police station he
begged to be placed in a cell at once.
AUGUST BROKE A RECORD
About Five Millions and a Half Net
Tone Passed Thru the
Soo Canals.
Special to The Journal.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Sept. 4.In
point of a single month's traffic thru the
American and Canadian ship canals at
this point, August proved another record
breaker, the commerce amounting to the
enormous freight tonnage o !,403,80 net
tons.
Of this freight 4,241,683 tons were e?^t-
bound and 1,162,125 west-bound. The ves
sel passages thru the canals numbered
2,909i In the articles of commerce the
principal items were: Grain, 5,557.072
bushels iron ore, 3,789,082 tons flour, 647,-
880 barrels coal, 1,053,068 tons.
To date the Sbo canals have passed 22,-
628,170 tons of freight, showing en in
crease of 988,780 tons over the same period
last year. While it has been predicted
that 1903 will show a traffic of 40,000,000
tons, with the rates of increase already
shown 39,000,000 will hardly be reached.

They had scarcely returned to their homes

- NARROW ESCAPE
President Nearly Demanded His Res
ignation Because of Importunity
of Western Senator '
They Aoted, It is Said, In Behalf of
Official Grafters in the
Department.
The President Was Told This and So
Refused to ActDevelopments
Expected.
New York Sun Special Bervloei
Chicago, Sept. 4.Walter Wellman, in
a Washington special to the Record-Her
ald, says:
Sensational developments are expected
soon in the land scandals in Indian Terri
tory and the maladministration of Indian
affairs in Oklahoma. Only a part of the
story can be told now, for to disclose all
of it would defeat the ends of justice.
i The scandal is divided Into two parts.
One is the purchase of Indian lands in
the territory by "rings," which fixed up
schemes to make competitive bidding at
sales a mere farce, presumably with the
collusion of government officials who are
stockholders or directors in land com
panies and trust companies formed for the
purpose of speculating in Indian lands.
The other is thieving from the Indians on
the reservations in Oklahoma by means
of fraudulent allotments of cash due the
natives under the agreements which the
United States has with the tribes. All
that can properly be said at this time is
that proof of frauds exist, especially in
Oklahoma that these frauds extend by
collusion or negligence, into the interior
department here that a rigid investiga
tion is now under way, and that in the
end a number of arrests of suspected of
cials may be looked for.

MINNElAPOLIS JOURNAL'.
"Graft" In Officialdom.
Involved in the story is a most inter
esting chapter of American politics, of
"graft" in official positions, of an effort
to secure "protection""thru, the influence
of senators and others in high public life,
and of an impudent and nearly success
ful attempt to get the scalp of a mem
ber of the cabinet who was too honest a
man for the comfort of the ringsters.
Shortly after Mr. Roosevelt became
president it was a matter of common gos
sip in Washington that the days of Mr.
Hitchcock as secretary of the interior
were numbered. A number of western
senators wanted him removed, and one
after another went to the White House
and complained that they could not get
any satisfaction from the secretary when
they called on business for their constitu
ents. The secretary of the interior was
not called upon to resign because one of
the president's oldest friends, a man not
in public life, a journalist, in fact, who
had long been fimillar with affairs in the
interior department, particularly those
which concerned the Indians, finally went
to the president and said to him:
Why They Attacked Hitchcock.
"For heaven's sake, Mr. President, do
not make the mistake of permitting the
western senators to induce you to dismiss
Mr. Hitchcock. They are after him be
cause he stands in the way of their
friends, Who are engaged in robbing the
Indians.'4 f,
"But
''fllr: Hitchcock is to slow,"
answered.the ' president,. ' "I- can't gef
anything done. I send for him^to ask
about a case and he has forgotten whether
or not. the case is before the department.
I want results."
"Never mind, that," replied the presi
dent's friend, "the first and most Im
portant thing is that Mr, Hitchcock is
honest, aggressively, uncompromisingly
honest. The gangs can't do anything
with him. I admit he is slow. H e is
stubborn as a mule. He is rash in snub
bing senators and other big-wigs who go
to see him for their honest constituents.'
But give him time. Give him a good law
officer to sit at his elbow, a good assist
ant to keep his work in order and let his
honesty and his fearlessness work out.
If you do, you will' never regret it. Mr.
Hitchcock does not know that I am here
speaking for him. But I speak because
I know the Indian service is filled with
graft and that you need just such a man
as Hitchcock at the head of the interior
department."
The Secretary Triumphs.
His eyes thus opened to the character
of the fight that was being made on Sec
retary Hitchcock and the true inwardness
of the running to him of this senator and
that senator suggesting that they could
not get along with the head of the interior
department, President Roosevelt' con
cluded to keep the secretary he had in
herited from the McKinley administra
tion and brave the discontent of the west
ern senators for the sake of having at the
head of that department a man upon
whose integrity and courage he could rely.
Sixty days ago President Roosevelt said
to his friend, who had urged him to re
tain Secretary Hitchcock: "I want to
thank you for what you told me last year
about the interior department and its
chief. If you never gave me good advice
about any other matter, you certainly did
that time. Hitchcock is a trump. He is
a terror to all the grafters."

Grand Rapids, Mfch., Sept 4.Prose-
cuting Attorney Brown has been p ut in
possession of ample evidenco showing the
methods adopted by local coal dealers to
keep a u niform price on alll kinds of hard
and soft coal, coke, wood and charcoal.
The evidence presented to the prosecutor
is the printed price, list in red and black

The evidence which^-'Prosecutor Brown

of such convincing character that it is be

Every coal,dealer in, the city has in his

TURNS PSYGHOLOGIST
Roland B. Molineux, in His New
Book, Explains Workings of a
Woman's Heart.
New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Sept. 4.In Roland B.
Molineux's new book, his second literary
effort, which is to be issued in a few days,
he speaks for the first time of the sud
denly severed bond between him and his
wife after his acquittal. There is no
tinge of blame or censure in his brief
remarks. In fact, he argues justification
for his wife. The paragraph in his new
book, a historical novel, "The Vice Ad
miral of the Blue," cannot but be con
strued as illustrating his own sad marital
experiences. It reads:
"Altho we idealize them, women are
but human and are weaker because more
tempted and more affectionate than we of
the sterner sex. Woman demands the
daily tokens of devotion that God in
tended she should have. Without them
she fades as the rose unkissed by the sun
or parched for lack of the life and beauty
giving dew. The husband who has ceased
to be the lover soon finds his wife no
longer the sweetheart, and equally so the
absent one is in danger, for absence
makes the heart grow fonderof some
one else. It is only natural.
"When years have passed since the
woman looked upon her husband's face,
whether the cause be warfare in a dis
tant land or misery behind a prison's
bars, the result is all but inevitable. Al
tho at first she is all devotion, anxiety
and love, plunged In loneliness and sor
row, in time the memory of the man be
comes to her a shadow he seems as one
dead, or if anything more real, a living
barrier against happiness. For near at
hand is some one who will promise her
a renewal of that happiness of which she
has been robbed. And when such a mo
ment comes into the life of a woman she
is but honest, even if cruel, when she
frankly says: 'It is over. I love another.'
A man, of course, may speak no such
words. The bit of chivalry that remains
in us forbids."

Chicago, Sept. 4.The overworked hat
pin, for years woman's chief weapon of
defense and offense, is on the high road
to oblivion. The star of a new instru
ment of retaliation is in the ascendant.
The new weapon is the "la tosca stick,"
or, as it is known in New York, the

maintain they are not in the combine.
They claim not to know of a combine of
the larger dealers That they follow the
prices set by them, ^they admit willingly,
and add that the. price charged for coal
is entirely too low. In fact, the small
dealers are at outs with the largest sell
ers in the city. They say the price of coal
is kept at such a-low figure that they can
barely make expenses. Their bills of lad
ing show that coal costs them $5.40 per
long ton at Buffalo,-to which is added $1.50
transportation charges.
The price list which all dealers follow
quotes the price of coal subject to dis
count, printed in black, and also the net
cash price printed in red. Even the
charge to be made for carrying and
shoveling is dictated and the cost for
every measure frorrt the bushel to the full
ton. Likewise, with wood,, the price is set
on block, chunk and split wood.
With reference to a combine farther up
the line, among the operators and mine
owners, the dealers claim that they would
not be able to obtain coal at all if they cut
prices.
Special to The Journal.
Des Moines, Iowa, Sept. 4.Judge W.
H. McHenry yesterday morning signed
an order in probate giving to Alta Bock
of Chicago, the natural child of Francis
M. Stern, a half Interest in the latter's
estate, which consists of farm land near
Mitchellville, valued at about $75,000. Em
bodied in the order Is a clause providing
that $2,000 shall be paid at once to the
direct heir for pin money.
Francis M. Stern was a wealthy Polk
county farmer and stock-raiser. During
his lifetime a child was born to a.woman
who did not bear his name. The child
was given a home and surrounded with
many" luxuries. When Stern died, Dec.
5, 1902, it" was his desire that the child
Alta inherit her share of his wealth, there
being no surviving heors aside from
brothers and sisters and other more dis
tant relatives.
C. L. Henney was appointed adminis
trator of the estate, which was claimed
by the brothers and sisters. The right
of the child was challenged. The contro
versy led to a stipulation of a settlement
July 16, 1903. This was terminated by the
order of court yesterday. Alta married
and went to Chicago wtlh her husband to
live. They occupy modest apartments in
a flat, which it is expected they will now
exchange,for more pretentious quarters.

publication. She parried several questions
and always referred to Mr. Young.
When Mr. Young was asked if she had
read either of Roland B. Molineux's books,
the woman with the divorce leaned back
and held her sides to stop the ache from
laughing too hard. Mr. Young couldn't
tell anything about his client's literary
habits.
He declared she had no intention of
going on the stage. Asked if his client
was about to be married again he said
that the notion was absurd.

Kew York Sun Speoial Servloe.
London, Sept. 4.A dispatch from Ber
lin to the Daily Mail says the forthcom
ing resignations of the crown prince of
Saxony and General Treitschke, com
manders respectively of the twelfth and
nineteenth army corps, are said to form
a sensational sequel to the recent scandal
in regard to the Crown Princess Louise,
who eloped with Andre Giron, the tut6r
of her children. It will be remembered
about that time her brother, Archduke
Ferdinand, thrashed the crown prince.
Both the crown prince and General Von
Treitschke have been practically ousted
from their commands, owing to the indig
nation felt In high military quarters here
because the former failed to fight a duel
with the archduke. A Saxon court of
honor, .presided over by General Von
Treitschke decided that it was not neces
sary for the crown prince to fight a duel.
The latter acquiesced In the decision and
this awakened such angry indignation that
the positions of both men were made un
tenable. Their last appearance as army
officers will be during the annual maneu
vers next week.
