The Evening It Is libk. It Is (he VOL. 1, NO. 168. Passed By the Russian Parlia ment Appropriates $7,000, 000 for Famine Relief—Re sult of Two Months' Session. EMPEROR DEGRADES SEVENTH CAVALRY The Assassin of General Koilov, Be lieved to tee a Jew, is Still at Large. Associated Press Cable to The Evening Times. St. Petersburg, July 17.—The em peror last night approved the bill of the lower house of parliament, which was adopted by the upper house, ap propriating $7,000,000 for famine re lief, thus supporting the contention of both the houses of parliament against his own ministers. This law is the first enactment of the Russian parlia ment and represents the net legal re sult of the session of over two months. The papers today say that the au thorities at Peterhof are again asking M. Shipoff, former president of the Zemstvo council and M. Yetmoloff, the leader of the conservative center party, to renew their attempts to in duce the constitutional democrats to enter the coalition cabinet.. Emperor Nicholas has degraded the Seventh cavalry which mutinied at Tamboff by taking away the imperial standard conferred on the regiment two years ago.

WILL The Fighting Blood of the Jamestown Attorney is Boiling ENGERUD'S GRIEVANCE IS OLD Associated Prem to The Kvnlig Time*. Minneapolis, July 17.—A special to the Journal from Jamestown, says: John Knauf, the local attorney nom inated by the republican state conven tion for supreme judge, is not at all disturbed by the light started on him In Fargo. He is making a financial sacrifice to leave his practice for the bench, but has his fighting blood up now, and will stick on the ticket, ft Is thought likely that after being elected he will resign, and allow Gov ernor Sarles to appoint his successor. The reasons for Judge .Engerud's op position to Knauf are well known here. His attitude is ascribed to a tilt the two men had in 1897. Engerud, while practicing law in Ransom coun ty, collected some money for one J. W. Plunkett, a school teacher, due him from a district. Engerud then moved to Fargo, while Plunkett came to Jamestown. He claimed that Engerud refused to turn the money over, and retained John Knauf to collect it. En gerud was then assistant state's attor ney in Cass county, and Knauf went to Judge Pollock to ask that a special state's attorney be named to prosecute Engerud. Before the case went any farther a settlement was made, and this incident is claimed to be respon sible for Judge Engerud's bitter feel ing against Knauf. The reports from Fargo say there was no meeting of the bar there, regu larly called. The action against Knauf was taken by a handful of attorneys, most of them democrats and friends of Judge Fi8k. Judge Engerud's threat to resign if Knauf is elected is not taken seriously here. It is be lieved to be a bluff. Knauf was not a candidate for the judgeship till three or four days before the convention. He only entered 'to head off the selection of a' democrat. He wanted to withdraw from the state after he had landed, but some of his friends would not stand for it, fearing It would mean the nomination of Tracy Bangs, a democrat. There was never any danger of the machine taking up Fisk. DRUIDS. An International Grand Lodge Will be Established. Associated Prcas Cahle to The Bveilig Time*.
