These words, spoken to Sheriff Mike Madden at the edge of the clear insg surrounding the besieged home, by little Helen, youngest daughter of John F.

Real Cause of Surrender. To Father Joseph Pilon, the priest who was largely instrumental in bringing the long-drawn out contest to a close, he whispered that a baby was about to be born to his wife and he feared that both she and the infant might die. The surrender of Dietz was very dramatic. The alert lumb ermen leaning on their rifles at the edge of the clearing, and gazing in tently at the windows of the log cabin, suddenly saw a flutter of a white handkerchief at the door. Then lit tle Helen appeared and advancing with the cloth over her head, walked to the edge of the clearing where she announced that her papa was willing to surrender. Consultation of Officers. A short consultation followed be tween the sheriff and his deputies and deputy Heffelfinger volunteered to go back with the girl. In the meantime Father Pilon, in his eagerness to bring the combat to an end, had started running toward the cabin.

These glad tidings which have scattered on the floor, they having enraptured the very souls of the pioneers of this county, have been their fondest hopes of many years gone by. Now that these hopes have bounced back after striking against been fully realized, is it any wonder that these sturdy, loyal and faithful American citizens are arranging for a general jollification meeting in ap preciation of what their Creator and fate has provided for them.

Mott, which is the county seat of Hettinger county, is a well-known through the west, that further intro ductory remarks are hardly essential at this time, but suffice it to say however, that the White City is for tunately located in the very heart of a most magnificient agricultural en vironment and populated by an ex ceedingly generous minded and intel ligent lot of people, who never lack in courtesy or hospitality.

The Duke of Oporto is reported to have escaped on board a war vessel 40 LIVES LOST ROOSEVELTTALKS AFFAIRS BEING Disclaims Responsibility for Tariff Plank in New York Stale Platform Theodore Roosevelt tonight dis claimed responsibility for the tar iff plank in the New York state platform. In doing so he replied to criticisms which have been di rected against him, particularly by the so-called insurgent repub licans of the west, to the effect that he talked one kind of poli tics in the west and another kind in the east. This criticism was based large ly on the fact that while he did not endorse the Payne tariff law in any of his western speeches, the tariff plank of the New York republican platform commended the bill. Col. Roosevelt made clear in his speeches that he had not en dorsed the I'ayne Jaw and that he did not agree with the New York tariff plank. He said that he would stand on his speech as temporary chairman of the New York republican convention in which he commended part of the Payne law but did not. endorse it as a whole. Roosevelt's speech was delivered at the Uncle Remus Day celebration here. Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 8.—Roosevelt came into Georgia today and found awaiting him a welcome as warm as he has received during his recent trav els.

Roosevelt made three speeches in Atlanta. His first was at the Southern Conservation congress. He urged the people of the south to take care of their wealth, and said that if the country's re sources should fall into the hands of a monopoly, the people would revolt. After taking dinner with Mayor Maddox, he spoke at the Uncle Remus Day celebration, which is being heing held to raise a fund to purchase the home of the late Joel Chandler Har ris, author of the Uncle Remus stor ies, and preserve it as a memorial to his work.

PORTJIGAL CITV People Accept new Regime in Matter of Fact Way_ Resentment Shown by Pop ulace Against The Clergy Lisbon, Oct. 8.—The proclamation of the republic of Portugal is being received by the people generally in a matter of fact way. While order has been in a measure restored, the fear still prevails that attacks against the religious establishments may be come general. The most marked feature of the situation now is the resentment that is shown by a portion ot the popula tion against the clergy. Last night republican troops attack ed the Jesuit monastery in the Rua! do Quelhas, after they had been fired upon from the windows. One priest was killed and the others were plac ed under arrest. The hoisting of the British flag over the building had the effect of checking the fire of the troops. Armed bands have descended upon the houses of various officials closely affiliated with the monarchy, but the houses were found empty and the property was not damaged. Because of this condition of affairs police measures have been increased and pa trolling parties have been sent out to guard against marauders and rioters. The government has granted amnes ty in the case of all political crimes and has revived a former law, in creasing the liberty of the press. It has ordered the payment of moneys to functionaries and has changed the old oath to the form of a mere prom ise on the part of the officials, "to acomplish their duties on their hon or." An extension of ten days has been granted for the settlement of pending legal affairs. WANTADS TRIBUNE Telephone .3 or 32 BRING RESULTS PRICE FIVE CENTS FOOTBALL Minncsota 49 Ames 0.
