ABOUT THE STAT
Hews of Especial Interest to
DOCK CRASH FATAL TO FOUR
Accidsnt at ths Head of ths Lakss
Said to Be Due to Carelessness
of Switching Crew.
Two men are* known, to have' been
killed, two are'fatalljr injured, four
were seriously hurt and five are said
by the workmen to be unaccounted
for as the result of a collision of ore
trains at the Allouez ore docks. The
company contends that only two were
killed. After the accident the 500
men employed on the docks went on
strike, demanding a change in condi
tions to prevent a recurrence of the
Nick Libest and John Koski, labor
ers, of Superior, are the dead.
Isaac Isei, laborer, leg cut*off and
an unidentified man, laborer, leg and
arm cut off, cannot live.
The accident is blamed to careless
switching. A moving ore train ran
into a standing train, throwing the
workmen into ore pockets and cover
ing them with ore.
FLOOD OF REFUND CLAIMS
Secretary of Minnesota Railroad Com*
mission Nearly Swamped.
Claims of many thousands of ship
pers tor refunds of overcharges dur
ing the period of railroad rate litiga
tion are pouring into the office of the
state railroad and warehouse commis
sion, and Assistant Secretary Thomas
Yapp is having difficulty in arranging
them for presentation to the roads.
,In many cases the claims are for in
terstate shipments. It has been dis
tinctly ruled that no refunds on this
class of freight can be made. It is
only for shipments entirely within the
state that the supreme court ruling
applies, and the interstate rates were
not directly affected by the decree in
the Minnesota case.
The commission is making every ef
fort to secure prompt action on the
part of the railroads on all claims
filed, and it has been assured by offi
cials of the various lines affected that
arrangements are now being perfect
ed so that the refunds due can be
quickly and amicably adjusted.
FATAL CAVE1N AT ANOKA
Victims Caught in Trench When
One man was killed, five were in
jured, one so seriously he may die,
and twenty or more narrowly escaped
when the walls of an excavation being
made to install a new boiler in the
state asylum for the insane at Anoka
Scores of workmen dug frantically
in the ruins in the hope that the one
man, caught beneath more than a ton
of cement and mortar that fell into
the exca\ation, might be taken out
alive. His body was found crushed.
More than twenty men had been
employed digging a deep trench to
the boiler room of the asylum.
Those in it were working near the
building when suddenly one wall
caved in. John Johnson, who was
killed, was directly beneath the ava
lanche. Albin Rydquist. who was prob
ably fatally injured, was caught and
almost buried. The others were struck
with pieces of falling cement, but
managed to extricate themselves and
then rescue Rydquist.
TANK FALLS THROUGH STORE
Mankato Man Buried Under Tons of
More than twenty workmen nar
rowly escaped death, one was buried
for two hours beneath tons of debm
and the Patterson Mercantile com
pany's four-story building at Mankato
was damaged to the extent of $40,000
when a steel water tank, containing
15,000 gallons, fell through the build
The tank tore through one corner
of the building, carrying boxes of gro
ceries and other stock with it.
The debris and one end of the tank
stri-. squarely on top of Gomer Jones'
motorcycle store, in which two me
chanics were working.
One of the men, Ernest L. Skoog,
was trapped under fifteen feet of brick,
mortar and boxed goods. A crowd
gathered and scores of men went to
work to dig bun out.
When taken out it was found that
both Skoog's legs were fractured. It
is thought he will recover.

OF GREAT VALUE TO STATE
Minnesota Subject of Laudatory Arti
cles in Eastern Magazines.
The state of Minnesota Is getting
some valuable advertising at the pres
ent time in some of the largest East
ern magazines. A recent issue of The
Country Gentleman, an agricultural
paper of national circulation, contain
ed an editorial which gave the Min
nesota state board of immigration
much publicity, and at the same time
called public attention to the re
sources and opportunities of Minneso
ta. In this article The Country Gentle
man mentioned the fact that Minneso-*
ta has approximately 27,000,000 acres
of undeveloped lands capable of pro
viding 165,000 farms of 160 acres
each. It also quotes the price of
Minnesota lands, which range from $8
per acre for wild land to $125 for
highly improved farms.
The Youths Companion of July 17
published an editorial highly compli
mentary of Minnesota and pointed out
the fact that Minnesota bad wisely
bandied her state lands, so that today
she has a permanent trust fund of
over $29,000,000 and will have in 1950
a fund of $200,000,000. Articles of this
character, appearing in such largely,
circulated papers, are of incalculable
value to Minnesota. As a result of
this publicity many inquiries are be
ing received by the state board of im
migration asking about Minnesota's
landB and opportunities.
Fred D. Sherman, the commissioner
of immigration, is preparing a series
of articles on Minnesota which will
appear from time to time in several
WESTON AT END
OF LONG WALK
Arrives at Minneapolis After
Hiking 1,600 Miles.
When Edward Peyton Weston, the
aged pedestrian, ended his long jour
ney on foot from New York to Minne
apolis he was accompanied by an es
cort in which Governor Eberhart and
Mayor WT. S. Nye of Minneapolis were
two notable figures.
Both the governor and Mayor Nye
set out briskly from St. Paul, keeping
pace with the noted old hiker. They
kept the pace until they reached the
city limits Here they entered auto
The enthusiasm of the St. Paulites
who were in the party with Weston
held firm until the hikers were well in
the Midway district. Here a few
began to drop out, but others took
their places at every block.
Minneapolis downtown streets were
jammed when Weston strode up Nicol
let avenue and ended his 1,600-mile
walk. Weston immediately laid the
mortar on the corner stone of the
new Minneapolis Athletic club's build
The crowd was immense. Hours
before Weston was due to reach Min
neapolis the curbs along his route
•were lined with people. His course
was a continuous ovation. Frequent
ly the crowds pushed beyond police
lines, and the walker was forced out
of his stride. Whistles and cheers
added to the din.
Weston started the morning of June
2 from the steps of the College of
the City of New York and has walked
in the sixty days an average of thir
ty-three miles a day and as much as
forty-five miles some days.
