•Clay County Suffer* Moat and Whole
Communities Are Out Fighting
the Pent—lloppcrdozers DO Gooil
Work-Western Minnesota Will
Never Be Rid of Them Until Fal
lowing Is Abandoned.
St. Paul, July 7.—The Rocky moun
tain and White mountain locusts have
been doing considerable damage in the
Red river valley from Wilkin to Kitt
son counties. Continued rain and a
parasite which attaches itself to the
grasshopper have somewhat mitigated
the pest, but have not prevented them
fron. cleaning up whole acres of young
"wheat, flax and potatoes, whose fields
are bare. About Moorhead and Ada
the grasshoppers are present in num
bers sufficient to do great damage un
der favorable conditions.
Oil for use in hopperdozers has been
furnished farmers at various points in
Kittson, Marshall, Polk, Norman, Ot
ter Tail, clay and Wilkin counties. In
•Clay counlj', where the grasshoppers
are most serious, the whole community
is fighting-them and hundreds of bush
els have been caught in hopperdozers.
This is the most general outbreak of
hoppers in Minnesota in many years
and the crops will be in peril until the
•stubble fields from this year's crops Eire
plowed up.
Prof. E. B. Forbes, acting state ento
mologist, has embodied his investiga
tion in that region in a bulletin pub
lished by the state experimental sta
The best and simplest method ot
fighting the locusts is to plow the eggs
under. This inverts the egg mass and
.the .young find themselves too far un
der ground to dig out. As no mature
grasshoppers live through the winter
and there is but one brood a season
this method effectually disposes of
them. Next to plowing under the best
means is the hopperdozer. The state
furnishes oii for use in the hopper
dozers. County commissioners dis
tribute the oil.
The whole source of the trouble, ac
•cording to Prof. Forbes, lies in the
•common practice of summer fallowing,
and Western Minnesota will never lie
free from grasshoppers until the farm
ers abandon it. The land left fallow
•becomes the breeding place of millions
of grasshoppers.
'Sensational Attempt to Esoaiie From
Butte, Mont., July 7. James Row

number of passengers chased the fugi
tive and recaptured him after a run of

Mrs. McICinley left Washington last
night for the home at Canton, where
they are to spend the remainder of the
heated term, except that the former
may visit the Buffalo exposition and
run on to Washington for a few days.
They were accompanied by Secretary
Cortelyou, Dr. P. M. Rixey, several
clerical attaches of the White House
and servants. Mrs. McKinley, as sht
boarded the train, sho,wed unmistaka
ble evidences of her recent severe ill
ness in the thinness and pallor of TTer
face, but she moved with alacrity from
the carriage, boarded the train without
any material assistance and appeared
to be in a contented and cheerful state
of mind. Occasional visits at intervals
of several weeks will be made by the
president to the capital to dispose of
any accumulated business demanding
his attention.
striking Miners at Tellurlde, Col.,
Arc Behaving Themselves.
Denver, July 7. A calm prevailed
yesterday over the scene of Wednes
day's trouble with the striking miners
employed in the Smuggler-Union mine
near Telluride, Colo. The latest infor
mation concerning the situation came
to Gov. Orman last evening from
Sheriff Dowtain and was contained in
a telegram which read as follows:
"There has been no violence or prop
erty destroyed since the 3d. I do not
think I can protect life and property in
case of riot. It is usually done before
one knows it."
Gov. Orman was very much relieved
by the receipt of the above message,
for he feared that there might be an
outbreak before his commission could
arrive at Telluride and take the mat
ter in hand.
Heavy Storms Alone Cnn Put Stop to
Hot Weather.
Washington, July 7.—The tenth day
of the present heated term was again
a "scorcher" except where thunder
storms. local rains or violent atmos
pheric changes brough cool weather.
In Arkansas, the East Gulf states,
Northern Ohio and New York, thun
derstorms brought relief. In South
eastern New England also cooler
weather prevailed, the temperature
falling from 6 to 10 degrees. The bu
reau officials again say the only pros
pect for relief from the heat lies in the
occurrence of storms. There is no
promise, they say, of general thunder,
storms sufficient to make a consider
able fall in the tempeiature. Local
rains will give temporary local relief
but the officials say permanent relief
will not come until heavy storms or
local rains prevail. In Chicago a prom
ise of a short respite from the heat is
given. New York yesterday had a
two-inch downpour of rain which sent
the thermometer down to 76.
Plngiee's Remains Viewed by Thou
Detroit, Mich., July 7.—All day un
til 11 o'clock iast night the lirre of hu
manity which came to take a last look
at the famous dead governor of Michi

50,000 people had passed by the bier of
the dead governor. The remains were

'Vnrsity Race Was One of the
Fiercest Straggles Ever Wit
nessed in College Aquatics—Acci
dent Prevents Cornell Walktug-
Off With Three Victories Penn
sylvania Freshmen Win.
Poughkeepsle, N. Y., July 4.—The in
tercollegiate boat races over the Hud
son river course were decided yester
day as follows:
'Varsity Eight—Cornell first time,
18:551-5. Columbia second time, 18:58.
Wisconsin third time, 19:06 4-5.
Georgetown fourth time, 19:21.
The best previous record for 'varsity
eishts was 19:44 3-5. No time was
taken for Syracuse and Pennsylvania,
who were many lengths behind.
In the 'varsity fours Cornell was
first time, 11:39 3-3. Pennsylvania sec
ond time, 11:24 2-5. Columbia third
time, 11:513-5. The best previous
record for this distance was 10:311-5.
In the freshman race Pennsylvania
was first time, 10:20 1-5. Cornell sec
ond time, 10:23. Columbia third time,
10:36 1-5. Syracuse fourth time, 10:41.
The previous record for freshmen
eights for this distance was 9:19 1-2.
Not only was a new record for 'var
sity eights made, but it is more re
markable that the four leading crews
in the race each broke the old record
by many seconds. The race was rowed
in water that was phenomenally ad
vantageous, and while this may have
helped the time, still it did not seem
to assist the freshmen who rowed un
der almost the same conditions. The
'varsity race was the most exciting of
the day, although the other two, with
Uncertainty Over the Winner,
caused a flurry. The l'act that Penn
sylvania had been picked as a sure
winner of the four-oared event, but
that Cornell beat her out easily,
whetted the appetite of the thousands
upon the shore and observation train
for the other contests. The phenome
nal feature of the races is that had
not the Cornell freshmen boat broken
in the last'* half-mile, Cornell would
have three victories to her credit.
Columbia is happy for her oarsmen
have gone up from a very bad place to
a second place in a six-sided contest
after giving the winners a hard fight.
Georgetown, a new rival for honors,
and to whom little attention had been
paid, got inside the time record and
hung on to the leaders with a tenacity
that surprised everybody. Pennsyl
vania was never in the race with its
second crew and Syracuse with its
light oarsmen was outclassed.
The 'varsity race was one of the
fiercest struggles ever witnessed in
college aquatics, and had any one of
the crews in the lead displayed any
weakness the tailenders were ready to
take their place and make good time
at that. As it was, although the race
was one of the most severe ever rowed,
there was not a sign of distress in any
Boys Are Caught in a Tunnel and
Two Killed.
Pittsburg, July 4. Ten boys were
caught like rats in a trap in a tunnel
leading to the old Keeling mine owned
by the Pittsburg Coal company. Two
boys were killed and eight overcome
by the foul fumes of the place. The
boys had been helping load a train and
all boarded the train to go to the tip
ple. While in the tunnel the train
stalled. The boys became frightened,
jumped to the ground and tried to
grope their way to the outside. The
fumes of the tunnel, combined with the
smoke from the engine prostrated all
of them, and the two who were killed
fell across the tracks. When the train
started these lads were literally ground
to pieces and the others were taken
out later by a rescue party.
The Volga So Low That Supplies
Cannot lie Transported.
Irkutsk, July 4. With its crops
now withering under the present
wave of equatorial heat, the great
valley of the Volga is threatened with
widespread famine. The river has
fallen so low that steamers and barges
conveying 1,000.000 pods (15,873 tons) of
freight have grounded and cannot get
to their destination until rains swell
the stream to its normal level. The
rural peasantry is destitute in many
districts. Farmers, landlords and
traders are apprehensive of serious
times. The distress is so great that
the people are emigrating.
Machinists Have Won.
Washington. July 4. President
O'Connell of the International Associa
tion of Machinists said yesterday that

the old basis," he said, "the nine-hour
day would be won."

Butte, Mont., July 4.—Two dead, two
severely if not fatally injured, and a

lodging house. Several men were ex
perimenting with a gasoline lamp in a
saloon on the lower floor of the lodging
house when the lamp exploded, scat
tering flames in all directions. The

fire department arrived the flames had
op.ten through the lower floor and were
spreading to the upper stories. The
lodging house contained about a hun
dred guests who were unable to save
anything except what they wore. Most
of them escaped by jumping from the

the bidders not only submitted figures
upon granite but upon other stones
and -upon combinations of various
kinds of material. One month ago bids
were called for and the material was
restricted to Minnesota stone. The of
fers were so high that all the bids were
rejected and new ones were called for.

home to Bon Homme early yesterday
morning. He had been in town for the
Beach & Bower's show and at 2 a. m.

ing it an unusual proceeding at that
hour he investigated and found five

arrived in town at 6:20 a. m. and se
cured the assistance of the sheriff.
Great efforts are being made to trace
the thieves.

made in the past to suppress Farr, but
he has refused to keep still, insisting
from the start at White Earth that he
