rived here this afternoon from St
Petersburg the situation was practi
cally unchanged. The mutinous artil
lerymen were still holding out, aided
by a regiment of sappers and miners
who had joined them in the mutiny.
Throughout the day an artillery
battle was fought between the north
and south batteries of the main island
of Sveaborg.
From a place of vantage the corre
spondent was able to see shells oc
casionally strike the barracks and
fortifications, causing fires to start
up. The mutineers at that time seem

Russian commander was forced to

St. Petersburg, Aug. 2. —The col
lapse of the mutiny at Sveaborg, coup
led with the breakdown of the plans
of the revolutionists to secure posses
sion of the Baltic Bquadron and pro
voke an immediate rising at Cronstadt,
greatly changes the situation. The
spirits of the government officials have
risen and those of the revolutionists
are correspondingly depressed and
arrangements for ordering a general
strike on Saturday may be counter
The strike in Finland is already a
failure, owing to the fact that the
more intelligent of the Finns did not
support it.
The latest report shows that all the
rumors to the effect that the Baltic
squadron was in the hands of the
mutineers were untrue. When the
mutineers who were led by the agita
tors from the shore and who believed
that the squadron was coming to
the rescue found that hope in that
direction was crushed, dissensions
broke out among them and they turned
their guns upo^ each other. Those
who had determined to die rather thn»)
surrender, fired into the ranks of their
more faint-hearted comrades, who

The Citation In the Creel Case Will
Not Be Made Returnable
Till Then.
Special to The Evening TImea.
Devils Lake, N. D.. Aug. 2.—In the
district- court here yesterday P. J.
McClory appeared for Adjutant Gen
eral Creel, and asked that the return
date on the citation issued several days
ago be continued to Aug. 20 owing to
the absence of Mr. Creel from the
state, and the motion was granted.
Judge Cowan issued an order ten
days ago citing Adjutant General Creel
to appear and show cause why leave
should not be granted to start an ac
tion in the state court requiring him
to show cause by what authority he
holds the position of adjutant general
of the state.
The action is brought in the name
of J. H. Fralne, ex rel. State of North
Dakota, vs. H. M. Qreel, and seeks to
oust the adjutant general from his po
sition, on the grounds that Governor
Sarles in appointing him violated a
law enacted at the last session of the
legislature, requiring that all appoint
ments in the national guard should
be made from the field or line.

His Walsh County Posses

Company of St. Louis.
CLOSE TO $100,000.
The Grafton Mill Is the Largest In
the State and Has a Big Pat
Special to The Evening TImea.
Grafton, N. D„ Aug. 2.—A business
deal of considerable Importance to this
community took place yesterday. W.
C. Leistlkow, the wealthy miller and
banker, sold his flour mill, elevators
and good will to the Eggert Milling
company of St. Louis, Mo. The con
sideration is said to be close to
$100,000. Mr. Leistlkow's mill Is one
of the largest and best equipped mills
in the state and has a capacity of 700
barrels. For several years Mr. Leisti
kow has had absolute control of the
wheat market In this vicinity, but he
has not abused that monopoly, but on
the other hand has paid all the way
from one to three cents above the mar
ket price for all wheat. The result
has been that Mr. Leistikow has han
dled an enormous amount of wheat
that would otherwise have gone to
neighboring cities. Mr. Eggert has
bought all of the facilities for handling
grain and will have the same clear
field in the wheat market.
Mr. Eggert is a prominent flour mill
man of St. Louis, where he owns one
of the best mills in the city. It is his
purpose to move to Grafton and per
sonally look after his interests here.

hour and told how they did it in Min

vote for the best man. In so doing
they would destroy the railroad in

Hard Work Trying to Find a Man Who
Will Accept Nominations.
'•S*1*1 Correapondcnce to The Evening
Minot, N. D., Aug. 2.—It was hoped
by the faithful that a cloudless sky
would greet the Incoming delegates
to the democratic state convention, but
when the sun rose on the preceding
day it did not shine with expected bril
liancy, but on the other hand dark and
threatening clouds hung over the city,
which was not regarded by the super
stitious as being a good omen. By 9
o'clock a drizzling rain, fanned by a
gentle breeze from the northeast, was
very much in evidence.
The night and morning trains
brought In a large number of dele
gates from the leading counties of the
Chairman Brynjolfson and Sec. J.
T. Duffy were among the early ar
rivals and occupied a suite of rooms
in the Leland hotel. Honorable J. S.
Cashel and his friends, together with
Mayor Duis of Grand Forks, found
charming quarters in a suite of rooms
cr. the second floor.
A special effort Is being made on
the part of the citizens of Minot, re
gardless of party, to make the occa
sion a pleasant one for the various
visiting delegations.
While it is too early in the game
to offer a safe prediction as to the
final outcome, it is not going too far
outside the boundary lines to predict
that Terry McCosker or Col. Frank
Hanson, both of Grand Forks countv,
will be nominated for railroad com
At this writing it looks as it' Mc
Cosker will be It for the reason that
Mr. Hanson openly states that in the
event Mac wants the place, he will
withdraw and work for his nomina

en- and personal friends.
The ovcrnor*hi|».
Up to the present writing the gov
ernorship seems to be the center of
attraction. Enough Is known regard
ing the situation In this respect to say
positively that Mayor Duis of Grand
Forks will, under no circumstances,
permit his name to be presented to
the convention. Your correspondent
had a conversation with Mr. Cashel of
Grafton, who has been prominently
mentioned as an available candidate
for governor, and he stated that under
no circumstances would he permit his
name to be considered in that con
nection. Giving as an excuse that he
has been nominated for state senator
by the democrats of Walsh county and
endorsed by the republicans, and
that should he accept the nomination
for governor, he would feel that he
was doing an injustice to his friends
at home.
There has been considerable talk
about the nomination of Hon. D. C.
Greenleaf of this city for the position
of governor. Mr. Greenleaf stated to
your correspondent late this evening
that he would under no conditions ac
cept the nomination. It is quite
probable, however, that in behalf of
the party and for the further pur
pose of having Ward countv honored
by a place on the state ticket. Mr.
Greenleaf will consent to the nomina

may be provided in the person of Hon.

stands at the head of the list of pros

It is true that Serumgard of Devils

able candidate but it is not at all prob

stated to your correspondent this even

Judge Fisk of Grand Forks would be
nominated for the supreme bench and
that Judge Morgan, who was recently
nominated for the same position by
the republican convention at James
town would be endorsed. It is taken
for granted that the principal light,

The Forenoon.
Fair Grounds, Aug. 2.—Today la
Grand Forks day at the Red River Val
ley exposition, and the weather man,
in appreciation of the importance of
the occasion, came out of his sulks
and the sun shone brightly at frequent
intervals during the forenoon, driving
away the gray clouds, and aided by
a strong breeze, fast drying up the
track and grounds.
The races will be run this afternoon
according to schedule, the track now
fast shaping into good condition, and
while it will not be fast In the strict
sense of the word, It will be In good
condition by 2 o'clock.
Horses are being worked out thia
morning and a general atmosphere of
satisfaction and relief over the pros
pects for good weather is apparent
"Today is the first day those flaga
here waved right," was Secretary
Woods' cheerful remark at the secre
tary's office this morning. "We have
prospects of good weather now and I
expect a big crowd this afternoon."
Crowda Arrive Eirljr.
A good sized crowd arrived early
at the grounds this forenoon and spent
the time in viewing the exhibits
an dwatching the judging of horses
which will be comple'ted today and the
awards given out for publication to
Big Dlaplny Tonight.
The fireworks, postponed on account
of the weather last evening, will be

A Fake "Dipper" Story.
At about 8:30 last evening It was re
ported to the police at the grounds
that a man named Smith, running one
of the spindle wheels, was accused of
picking the pocket of a party who had
been playing the wheel. The man was
arrested and taken to police head
quarters on the grounds pending an
investigation made by Chief Lowe, who
at once began to sift the matter. The
complainant could not be located by a
search made by tl|e chief and in view
of this fact and that no one had seen
the alleged act committed, Smith was
Chief Lowe and his men have con
ducted their part of the work at the
grounds In a highly commendable
manner and all suspicious characters
have been given warning not to at
tempt any light-fingered work.
But two arrests have been made on
the grounds thus far, the one last
night and the other a common drunk.
The Free-for-AII.
The free-for-all race, which was to
occur tomorrow, did not fill and those
in charge of the races will probably
arrange for a special race to take its
place In the program. This race re
quired five entries and but four were
entered, viz.: Red King, Milo, Joe
Interest and Baby Kid.

The judging of stock continues to
day, that of draft horses being taken
up this forenoon. Poultry
will also be continued today and It is
expected that most of the awards will
be made today. The secretary will
