MIMEAPOUS CENSUS PADDED

Vashfngton Staggered By Enormoue
Growth Shown By Tacoma
Returns.
Washington, Oct. 17.—Staggered by
he enormous growth shown by the
lew census for a number of western
titles, Director Durand, of the census
tureau, ordered an investigation, the
•esult of which appeared In the an
louncement that gross frauds had
leen perpetrated.
Cities specifically mentioned as be
ng affected by the census frauds are:
racoma, Seattle, and Aberdeen, Wash.
Portland, Ore. Minneapolis, Boise,
daho, and Fort Smith, Ark., and many
•tilers.
The result of a second enumeration
Tacoma was announced. The city
shows a population of 82,972, an in
:rease of :!7,7I4 or 120 per cent over
:he population of 1900. The first fig
ures turned in for Tacoma were 110,
248. In other words, the actual popu
lation was padded to the extent of 33,
296, which would have meant a furth
sr addition of 40 per cent.
Director Durand, sets forth that at
tempted padding of the census was
brought about mainly through the use
Df
slips printed by private individuals
and containing the census questions.
These were distributed very generally
on street corners and elsewhere, and
were filled out by thousands of peo
ple who either had already been en
umerated or who were not permanent
residents oI the city and not entitled
lo enumeration there.

MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION PUGI
LIST SUCCUMBS SHORTLY
AFTER SHOOTING.
MURDERER IS CAPTURED NEARBY
Ranch Hand in Missouri Flees After
Inflicting a Mortal Wound.—
Two Causes For
Trouble.
Springfield, Mo., Oct. 17.—Stanley
Ketchel, champion middleweight pugil
ist of the world, is dead as a result of
being shot by Walter A. Hurtz, a
ranch hand.
The shooting took place on the
ranch of R. P. Dickerson, a friend of
Ketchel near Conway, forty miles east
of here.
The pugilist died In the Springfield
hospital, where he had been rushed on
a special train chartered by Mr. Dick
erson. Three physicians were on the
train. An operation was performed on
Ketchel at the ranch house in an at
tempt to locate the bullet. It was not
found.
After shooting Ketchel, who was at
the breakfast tab when he was shot,
Hurtz rushed from the house into the
yard. He then faltered a moment,
turned and went back into the room
where Ketcliel lay upon the fiooi
Reaching into Ketchel's pocket ho ro
moved the pugilist's 38 caliber revol
ver, and struck him over his head with
it. Then he ran from the house.
The trouble between Ketchel and
Hurtz started when the pugilist up
braided the ranch hand for beating
a horse. This angered Hurtz.
Hurtz was captured at the home ol
Thomas Haggard, one mile from Nian
pua, Mo. Hurtz was taken to the Web
ster county jail at Marshfield, where
he is being closely guarded.
After being placed in his cell the
prisoner made a statement in which he
said he shot Ketchel in self-defense.
He says he ordered the prizefighter to
throw up his hands, and when he
did not obey him he fired.
Mrs. Smith, housekeeper, assigns
another cause for the shooting.
Another Reason for Shooting.
"While I was working in the house,"
she said, "Ketchel insulted me, I be
came angry. He was greatly wrought
up over the incident and pleaded with
me not to say anything 4o Hurtz about
our conversation, lie said he would
give me tne best team of horses on
the farm if 1 would keep quiet. When
Hurtz came home I told him what
Ketchel had said to me. He was very
angry. I think that is what caused
him to kill Ketchel."
Ketchel went to the ranch a month
ago. Weakened by the fast life h(
had led since his defeat by Jack John
son, the fighter hoped to recuperate.
The dead pugilist's real name was
Stanislaus Kiecal. lie was born la
Grand Rapids, Mich., Sept. 14, 1887,
and was, therefore but little more than
23 years old. His parent aro still liv
ing in Michigan, where he had bought
property for them. Sunday was the
first anniversary of his fight with
Jack Johnson.
Goldie Smith, the woman in the
case, has been taken to the Webster
county jail and will be held pending
in inquest.
HOW TO KEEP BUTTER PURE
London Firm Sella Microbes to Be In
troduced Into Cream to Kill
Decay Germs.
London.—Inoculated butter—guaran
teed to keep fresh for months—into
which millions of beneficial bacteria
have been introduced for the purpose
of preserving It, will be In common use
in the near future, and the part hither
to played by boric acid in butter will
henceforward be played by the active
microbe.
The production of these preservative
micro-organisms is the object of a new
company, which has recently opened
its offices at Crlcklewood, and here
large laboratories are being Installed
for the purpose of raising millions of
billions of bacteria for use in the
dairies of the world.
The manager of the new company
said that the discovery of the preserva
tive microbe was the result of years of
scientific research.
"Its object," he said, "Is to fight
other microbes that are found In butter
which have a harmful effect upon it—
that of turning it rancid. The only
way of combating these germs has
hitherto been by the use of preserva
tive chemicals, which are harmful
adulterants.
"But now my firm has succeeded In
finding an antidote germ to the harm
ful one, and by introducing it into the
milk before churning butter Is made
which will keep fresh and pure for a
long time.
"The inoculation of the milk has the
effect, broadly speaking, of setting up
a light between the opposing armies of
germs and the bad ones, that would
destroy the freshness of the butter, are
destroyed by the harmless ones which
are introduced."
The microbes are sold in the form of
a clear liquid, in small bottles, which
Is added to buttermilk and prepared In
a certain way before use. When the
preparation is ready one gallon of It is
added to every 20 gallons of cream In
the butter cliu.n, the rest of the but
ter making process proceeding in the
usual way.
The prices of the cultures used In
these processes vary from 75 cents to
$2.00 a buttle, and full instructions to
dairymen are issued with each con
signment. The cultures are equally
effective iu niargaiine.
Theory vs. Practise.

Can't Learn in School
When the stomach is out of order or
the bowels constipated, a feeling of
drowsiness and inactivity comes over
the body. The brain won't think, and
the.body won't work. If it is a child
who suffers in this way, it naturally
can't learn well in school, as it has no
inclination for study. Give the child a

JOHNSON TO FIGHT BREWERS
CA8S LAKE TIMES FACES $10,001
LIBEL SUIT.
Deputies Quietly Sent Into the Re
stricted Territory to Enforce
Closing Order.
Minneapolis, Oct. 17.—Thratenci
legal proceedings against Minneapolis
breweries if they attempt to ship li
quor into the Indian territory, a llbe'
suit for
$10,000
against the Cass Lak«
Times and an absolute order closing
all the saloons In the northern terri
tory, including not only the towni
mentioned under the old order, bul
also Bemldji, Grand Rapids, Hibbing
and other cities are- latest develop
ments in the Minnesota Indian liquoi
treaty situation.
Inspector Vm. E. Johnson dispatch
ed a dozen deputies into the prohibited
country to look over the situation and
to see that the law is strictly en
forced. He declares the order given
by Secretary Ballinger to the mayors
of Moorhead and Cass Lake a few
days ago was miscounstrued.
Iustead of opening the saloons oi
northern Minnesota it has been all
the more extensive and closed every
liquor selling place in the territory
covered under the Indian treaty oi
1855, he says.
Secretary's Right Denied.
"I have orders to enforce the
treaty," said Mr. Johnson. "The peo
ple ought to know what that means.
The secretary of the interior lias no
authority to annul the old Indian
'.reaty which puts northern Minnesota
Into the prohibited district. Only con
gress has that right. When Secretary
Ballinger revoked all the previous ord
ers he did not favor the selling of
liquors but made the original orders
all the stronger. Every saloon which
is doing business in northern Minne
sota today is violating the national
law.
"This means that I have the right
to confiscate every pint of liquor that
I can find in the district. I can raid
every saloon in the entire territory
and throw the liquor into the Missis
sippi river. Secretary Ballinger's re
cent order is the most sweeping that
has ever been made. I look for no
violence. The people of the north
realize tliey are bucking up against
Uncle Sam and must submit. I don't
believe the wild statements credited
to Mayor Dumas of Cass Lake, were
ever made. This talk of violence is
all nonsense."
Keeps Movement Secret.
Mr. Johnson would not say when he
is going into the district. The agent
simply smiled at the report that he
was afraid to go into the restricted
territory because of threatened vio
lence. He points to his record in Ok
lahoma where he handed a half a
hundred outlaws who threatened in
stant death if he appeared in their
section as proof of his bravery.
The deputies who left for the north
Sunday are expected to have the
situation well in hand by the time
Mr. Johnson arrives and after a con
ference with them he expects to make
a definite announcement as to what
steps he will make. It is believed that
the deputies will visit every town in
cluded in the order and notify.the city
authorities the saloons must close.
An attorney representing Mr. John
son left for Cass Lake to serve notice
on the Cass Lake Times that an edi
torial charging him with receiving
$10,001) froin the saloonkeepers of He
mid ji lie retracted. lie is also pre
paring to bring suit against that pa
per for $10,000 damages for libel.
