Notable German Pastor Chosen as General of the Congrega tion of the Company of Jesus Today at Rome on the Sec ond Ballot. "60m I AM NOT WORTHY." IS FH WERNZ'S COMMENT Pope Pius Extends the Aposto lic Benediction to New Leader. AMociate* Pwn Cable to The Eveala* I IBIMI Rome, Sept. 8.—Francis Xavier Wernz, a German, was today elected general of the society by the Congre gation of the Company of Jesus, in succession to the late Father Martin, who died last May. Following the election a messenger waB immediately dispatched to the Vatican to inform the pope of the choice, which, to become effective, re quires the paqal sanction. Although thff strictest secrecy was observed, it is learned that two ballots were tak,en before the final choice was taken. The -hnnouncement that a new general of the order had been chosen was communicated to outer world by the ringing of a bell which was a signal that the meeting was at an end. The formal announcement of the elec tion .was then made to the rector of the college, Father Alfred Maertens, procurator general of the Jesuits, who went to the Vatican to inform Pope Pius of the company's choice. The pon tiff expressed great satisfaction over the selection of Father Wernz. "He is just the man fitted for the position," said the pope when he had heard the message brought by Father Maertens. He charged Father Maer tens to take to General Wernz the apostolic benediction, and also an ef fectlonate letter of greeting which he wrote to the new general. Father Wernz's comment upon his election ac cording to a story which came fr nil the council chamber was, "God I am not worthy, but Thy will and that Of St Ignatius be done." No time has yet been fixed for the election of the assistants to the general and for other officials, including the secretary and monitor. Father Francis Xavier Wernz was born at Rothwell, Wurtemburg, on December 2, 1842, and at the age of 15 years entered the society of which he today was chosen the head. After a long course of preparatory work he took up the study of the Canon law at Dlttan hall, and in ^1883 received an appointment as professor in Gregorian university. He also has been rector of the university sintee 1904. IIS25JIOO ACADEMY Benedictine Sisters To Build at Devils Lake—Extend Chautauqua Line. Special to The BvealaB Tlmea. Time*. 1 KANSAS STATE FAIR.

Davis and Edgar LaRue of the Chautauqua railway company, mre in St. Paul this week negotiating for equipment of their road. Two prop ositions are under consideration lay ing heavier steel so Great Northern trains can run direct to the grounds or the doubling of the present motive power so as to provide for the running of trains every 30 minutes. The lat ter proposition seems to be the more popular with the public, and if it is adopted a passing track will be put In half way to the grounds. There Is some talk- that the line may be changed to run into the grounds 9m the east side so as to avoid climbing up and down the hill. This would.be greatly appreciated by Chautauqua patrons. It is also the intention of the rail way company to extend the line to the military grounds. Certain it is that the new owners of the line are alive to the situation and may be relied' upon to give the public first class service. There is good reason to believe that the Benedictine Sisters will erect a 25,000 academy at Devils Lake next year. It is contended that there is need for such an institution here. On Monday 62 scholars from this section of the state went to St. Joseph's, Min nesota to attend school. Probably as many more will go as soon as thresh ing is over. Thus it will be seen that a school at Devils Lake would be well patronized. BRfflmNIWED Will .Give Out An Answer to Charges of Roger Sullivan In a Day or Two. Associated Press to The Evetlig Time*.

Putney, England, Sept. 8.—the decisive distance of two lengths, Cam bridge won the great International boat race today, stalling off by a steady, powerful stroke, all Harvard's desperate spurts. The light Blues had the advantage of the choice of stations, which gave them at least a length to the good, in consequence of the wind-sheltered water on the surrey side of the river. They got away ahead at the start and were enabled to maintain their lead and even to increase it as soon as they reached^ the wind roughened water at Chiswicheyot. It was a pretty race throughout. There was a moment of Intense ex pectancy as the two crews backed' their craft to the stake boats and then leaned far forward, awaiting the sig nal. The pistol shot broke the spell and both crews got away from marks' boat cleanly, amid a deafening roar from multitude. The start was per fect, both crews taking water in the same instant. Neither splashed but with swift, steady precision the Cambridge men drove the bow of their boat half a length ahead within the first two boat lengths. As the English boat shot ahead, a wild yell went up from the patriotic masses. Cambridge went at a tremendous pace, 42 strokes to the minute, at the start, gradually reduc ing this rate, while the Harvard men hardly rowed above 35. The Light Blues gained stroke by stroke until by the time the craven steps were reached daylight showed between the shells. Then the crowds went mad and it ftas 100 to 1 that Cambridge would win. Official time was 19 minutes, 16 sec. FORTY LOCOMOTIVES. Associated Press to The Evening Times. Washington, Sept. 8.—The Isthmian Canal commission opened bids Mr the purchase of forty locomotives.

Present Campaign In Maine Ended Tonight—Will Go Down In History. Was One of ihe Most Sharply Fought. Ever Known In That State. Associated Press to The Bvealac Times. Augusta, Me., Sept. 8.—The Maine campaign closes tonight with speaking in nearly every town of any importance in the state. The election will be on Monday. As the Maine election will afforl the people of the country the first real line they have on the strength ond effect of organized labor in politics, all parties have put forth their utmost efforts to make the best possible showing. The republicans do not attempt to hide their concern over the result in the second congressional district, where President Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor has been working with his coat off in an effort, to defeat Congressman Charles E. Littlefteld and thereby make an example of him for other congressmen who have not taken what Mr. Gompers consider# the right stand in relation to proposed labor legislation. To offset the efforts of Mr. Gompers and save the scalp of Congressman Littlefield the republican national committee has sent into the district orators of na tional reputation, among them Speak er Cannon, Senator Beveridge of In diana and Secretary Taft. If the four congressmen from Maine are re-elected by normal majorities, it will be assumed as a matter of course that the rest of the country is safely anchored to the republican moorings, and as Maine goss. so goes the Union. That is the view the re publicans will take'. They will say that Maine has Indorsed Roosevelt and all his works, and it will stimulate every other district to do the same. But if the majorities of the four Maine congressmen are out down, or if, even better still from the demo cratic standpoint, one at leas! of th^i should be defeated, democratic cam paign stock will go up with a rush. As regards the state ticket nation al issues have cut little or no figure in the campaign. The great, almost the only, issue this year Is again the liquor question, which for seventy years has been a troublesome factor in Maine politics. A pioneer in the temperance movement, it is today a battle between prohibition and resnb mlssionlsts, the latter urging that prohibition has become unpopular and that the new generation which has come upon the stage since the con stitutional amendment was passed should have another opportunity to ex press themselves on the subject. The republican platform is squarely for prohibition and the rigid enforcement of existing laws. Taking advantage of this unpopular ity of the prohibition laws, the demo crats have forced it as the most prom inent issue, arguing that the people should be given the chance to say whether that law should be repealed. As to the gubernatorial candidates, bath are able men of good record. Governor Cobb, who is a candidate for re-election on the republican ticket, was graduated from Bowdoin college and later from Harvard law school. Instead of practising law, however, he has carried on the extensive lime manufacturing business at Rockland which his father founded. He is a man of wealth and culture, who has applied strict business principles to the work of his office. The democratic candidate is the same as in 1904. Cyrus W. Davis, of Waterville, a hustling business man, who has made much money in real estate, electric railroads and Colorado mines. He has been mayor of Water vill^. and a member of the legislature. Curiously enough, although the issue between tl}6 republican and democratic is that of prohibition or license, the Prohibition party has a candidate in the field: At this party's convention Governor Cobb's course was warmly commended and he was highly praised by the speakers and in the resolutions, and then the delegates proceeded to nominate Henry Woodward, of Win throp, for governor. It seemed a most inconsistent thing to do, but it really makes very little difference, as the prohibition party cast only 2788 votes in 1904. The republican pluralities for gov ernor in the past six elections were as follows:* 1894. 3S.91T: 1S96. 48.246: 1898, 24,415 1900, 3:S,3S4: 1902, 25, 247 1904, 25,800. BALTIMORE Jl'BILEE.

Vladivostock, Sept. 8—By means of a bold artifice, a party of revolution ists today obtained possession of $107,000 which had been sent hojjjll for the Thirtieth regiment.

St. Petersburg, Sept. 8.—Imprison mnent or deportation are now picturing to themselves black walls and firing squads. It Is, however, apparently in tended only to make the provisions of the recent ukase applicable in grave cases since the military courts are not permanent and must be specially constituted on each occasion. It Is probable that they will only be re sorted to in cases similar to the as sassination of General Min and the at tempt on the life of Premier Stolypin, •where prolonged trials keep the ac cused persons prominently in the eyes and sympathies xf the public. Premier Stolypin's communication speaks so plainly for itself that it needs little comment or explanation of its tone. Its issuance at this mom ent, on the eve of the council at Pet erhof of prominent men of all factions in administration and court circles, called for Sunday when it )s ex pected a decision will be reached over the question whether or not the pre mier shall have a free hand In the gov ernment of the empire, Is the most significant feature. As most of the measures indicated in the text of the communication have already been ful ly foreshadowed the defiance thrown down to the reactionists at court in the expreess mention of parties ad vocating a ppstponement of the reform is taken on all hands as being an in dication that M. Stolypin feels himself .to be too firm in the saddle to be un horsed at the coming conference at .Peterhof, and that he expects to win his struggle against the postponement of the convocation of the new parlia ment. A hint of his conversion to the expropriation of private estates to a limited extent, which it is stated has occurred since his assumption of the premiership, is given in M. Stolypin's reference to the agrarian problem. He said he was convinced that the distri bution of the crown appanage lands .by ordinary purchase operations through the peasants bank was not entirely adequate. In some, though not in many provinces, it would be necessary to expropriate land and .make reasonable compensation for it, but his views, the premier added, were not shared by all his colleagues.

A Boy Found With His Throat Cut From Ear to Ear— A Shocking Crime. Duluth, Minn., Sept. 7.—With his throat slashed from ear to ear, the body of the 12-year- old son of R. B. Mitchell, a steam shovel operator at Burnett, was found yesterday morning near the Duluth, Mlssabe & Northern right of way. Life had long been extinct when the body was found, and there seems to be but little doubt that it was a brutal and bloodthirsty murder. The details of the affair are not known yet. As soon as they heard of it, Coroner McCuen and Sheriff Bates seciired a special engine from the Missabe road and left for the scene shortly before noon. The mutilated body was discovered in the woods beside the track but a short distance from Burnett station. M. L. Cunningham of this city, who is spending the summer at Burnett with his family, came down to Duluth and gave the following account of the disappearance and the search: "On Tuesday afternoon, young Mitchell, with his mother and sister, had just been visiting at the home of a neighbor, where they had procured some supplies which the boy was car rying. Fred had accompanied his mother and sister with some reluct ance, as he wished to go with his chums to the river for a swim, and on the way back home he ran ahead out of sight. When his mother and sister arrived at the house they found Fred had left the package which he was carrying on the doorstep, and he had then gone off again. That was the last seen of him until his body was found this morning with the throat cut." EKTEREUPAOTEST Editors of Regeneracion,'' Spanish Paper of St. Louis, Write Roosevelt.

Matteray, the operator of an airship which ascended from the Oconto, Wis., fair grounds, on Thursday, and landed near Wolverine, Mich., on Friday, had a thrilling experience. "Hardly five hundred feet above the earth I was caught in a heavy north westerly wind," said Matteray upon arriving here. "I tried to make a quick descent but failed. To have done so would have been to drop into Lake Michigan. "It was then 5:30 o'clock. I knew that I had enough gas in the bag to carry me 24 hours. I could not steer the baloon, as the shaft refused to work, and was helpless in clouds. As the moon rose it showed me the lake. Once I distinguished a ship and then I saw a little island. A11 night I re-* mained awake and then, exhausted, lashed myself to the frame and dozed. When I awoke I was in sight of land. As far as I could see there was nothing but forest. Then there came a stretch of barrenness, and $ decided to descend. Again the baloon became unmanageable. I was carried to within sight of Lake Huron. Then I succeeded in dropping to a lower cur rent. The wind carried me back. Pin ally I ga.ned control of the valve and came down in a swamp. I did not know where I was except that I was in Michigan. I splashed about in the swamip two hours and finally gained high ground I climbed a tree and several miles away saw smoke. I made for this, climbing several trees in order to keep my bearings.

BADEN'S RULER IS NOW PAST HIS EIGHTIETH YEAR1 Associated Press Cable to The BVCBIBK Times. Berlin, Sept. S.—Advices from Carl sruhe state that preparations on a most elaborate scale have been made for tomorrow's celebration of the eightieth anniversary of the reigning grand duke of Baden. Frederick I. The celebration will be general throughout the duchy. The advices further state that the Grand Duke is particulary pleased and gratified by the visit of a delegation from Pitts burg bringing with them a message of congratulation from the Grand Duke's former subjects now resident in America. The Grand Duke of Baden is in a way one of the most notable figures among the rulers •, of Europe. Few people have played a more important role, not only in the constitution of the German empire, but also in the maintenance of its integrity. It was he who, as one of the independent sovereigns of Southern Germany, con ducted all the negotiations that led to the election of King William of Prussia as German emperor In 1870. And it is he! too, who since then has been the principal factor in smooth ing away all those many differences, some fthem of a very acute char acter, that have arisen between Prussia and the other states of the confedera tion. It Is something of a coincidence that the present week marked the fiftieth year of the reign of the Grand Duke. He owes his throne in the first place to the insanity of his elder brother, THE WEATHER. 8 North Dakota.—Showers to nit:lit or Sunday. who died under restraint after being deposed, and secondly to the romance in connection with the son of the Graud Duchess Stephanie of Baden. She bore to her husband five children —three daughters and two sons. One of the sons died in infancy. Concern ing the other son there always has been a mystery. She herself went down to the grave firmly convinced that her little boy had been stolen by the adherents of the now reigning and Lutheran branch of the house of Baden. True, and infant was carried to the grave with all the honors due to the remains of a little prince of the blood. But the Grand Duchess al ways Insisted that the little corpse was not that of her child but was that of a boy who, moribund, had been sub stituted by her enemies for her own healthy offspring. Years afterward a young man was found fainting of hunger at the gates of Nuremberg, and was taken to the police station. He was entirely un able to communicate with anybody, having no power of speech and no ac quaintance with either reading or writing. He fell into charitable hands, and gradually was taught and educat ed, whereupon he by degrees became able to give some account of himself. From this it appeared that he had been kept like a wild beast in a dark room. A meeting was arranged (or them, the mother being convinced that the youth was her missing son. 'But within a few hours of the time appoint ed for the Interview he was -mortally stabbed by some unknown individual.
