FIRST WEEK IN SEPTEMBER Minnesota State Fair Time Remain* Unchanged. State fair week in 1914 will be the first week in September.

Michigan would not yield its week, third in September, and Wisconsin and South Dakota, which hold fairs the second week, would not consent together to advance to the Michigan week.

ROOSEVELTWINS HIS LIBEL SUIT Michigan Editor Makes Frank RetfMtloa in Cowl. COLONEL WAIVES DAMAGES Former President Declares He Did Not Go Inti the Case for Money, but for Vindication. Marquette. Mich., June 2.—Colonel Theodore Roosevelt won his libel suit against George A. Newett, who charged the colonel with drunken ness. The colonel having waived damages after the defendant had ut tered a retraction the jury awarded the nominal amount of 6 cents, pro vided in such cases by the law of Michigan. Each party to the suit will have to pay his own expenses. Judge Flannigan instructed the jury to bring in a verdict for the plaintiff, which it did without leav ing the box. The climax of the case came like the conclusion of a drama. When the session began the air was charged with expectancy. Rumors were fly ing that the suit would be terminated. Counsel, however, remained uncom municative and Attorney Van Ben schoten for the plaintiff resumed the reading of depositions. It was noted, however, that he skipped portions of those and even ignored the testimony of some witnesses who had made depositions. The next move was sudden. Eyes Turn Toward Defendant. "The plaintiff rests," remarked At torney James H. Pound in a matter of fact manner and every eye was turned toward the table where sat the defendant and his attorneys, Hor ace Andrews of Cleveland and William P. Belden of Ishpeming. "The defense will call Mr. Newett," announced Mr. Belden, and a ruddy cheeked man, whose color did not disguise the fact that he is suffering from a serious illness, took the chair. In his hand he carried a manuscript. There was a shuffle as the spectators adjusted themselves better to hear and observe. Colonel Roosevelt sat with folded arms, at first, but when the defendant began reading his statement he moved to the utmost edge of his chair and betrayed an excitement which his rigid jaws could not hide. -Mr. Newett was well along in his reading before the colonel, whose po sition seemed like that of a man about to leap forward, lost the tense look on his face. "It is fair to the plaintiff to state that I have been unable to find in any section of the country any in dividual witness who is willing to state that he has personally seen Mr. Roosevelt drink to excess." At this the plaintiff smiled and, re laxing, spoke a few words in the ear of Attorney Van Benschoten. The latter smiled back at him. Roosevelt Quietly Smiles. The colonel broke into a smile again when Mr. Newett, speaking distinctly and with emphasis, said with refer ence to the mass of testimony ad duced by the plaintiff, "I am forced to the conclusion that I was mis taken." Leaving the stand and returning to his seat Mr. Newett looked in the di rection of Colonel Roosevelt, but the latter was absorbed in whispering to Attorney Van Benschoten. Later he whisnered in turn to Attorney Pound.
