The order of the interior de
partment relative to the cutting
of 1,500,000,000 feet of logs, from
the Leech Lake group of Indian
reservations before July 1. 1905,
is causing considerable unfavor
able comment on the part of the
press and lumbermen of the
state. The* idea of cutting this
vast amount of timber, burning
the slashings and leaving the
land ready to be sold for agricul
tural purposes, and all within one
cutting season and the part of
another, does not make a favora
ble impression.
The pine is to be sold for the
benefit of the Indians who own
the lands, and the idea of the in.
terior department, as reported
from Washington, is to have it
removed as soon as possible so
the Indians can have the benefit
of the money and the lands can
be sold for agricultural pur
The Minneapolis Tribune says
that from the standpoint of the
practical lumberman it is impos
sible, with the means at com
mand, to remove that amount of
timber in the given time. Last
winter the logging operations in
Minnesota amounted to 875,000,-
000 feet, which is the greatest in
history of Minnesota lumbering.
It takes on an average twenty
men to get out a million feet of
logs-in a season, not counting the
hauling or driving. At that rate
it would require an army of 30,-
000 loggers to fell the trees on
the government tract, not count
ing men who haul the logs to the
Last winter the logging con
tractors scoured the country for
men and teams and then were not
able to obtain enough. If the
government insists on having the
pine cut in the time specified, ac
cording to the Minneapolis pa
per, it would take all the wood
men in the Northwest to do the
work. Then, if the slashings
were piled and burned as fast as
the trees are cut, as must be
done according to the rules is
sued by Commissioner Richards,
another small army of men would
be needed.
Bids for the work will not be
opened till December 5th. If the
orders as already issued are not
changed the opening of the bids
will call for more than the ordi
nary amount of interest. This
is the ago of big undertakings.
Seemingly impossible tasks are
performed. The man may be
living who can take the contract
and carry it out according to the
present specifications, but it does
not look as though there were
any who cared to make the at

Rome, July 25.From sunrise until
sunset yesterday thousands passed be
fore the body of Leo XIII. It was
originally intended that this oppor
tunity publicly to view the remains
should extend through three days, but
the Associated Press correspondent
learns that the time is likely to be
curtailed and that the funeral may
occur Friday instead of Saturday
night, owing to the evidences that de
composition is setting in. This is
due to yesterday's severe heat, from
which no embalming, however per
fect, could completely protect the
The will of the dead pope was
opened at yesterday's meeting of the
congregation of cardinals. It consists
of thirty-six pages, in the handwriting

Use of the Church.
To each member of nWilamily he

valuable objects in his apartments.

The prevailing impression of those
who yesterday passed before the iron
gates of the Chapel of the Sacrament
to view the remains wa one of In
tense pity, combined with a certain
sense, of horror. The body was tilted
up on the catafalque in order that all
might.see the terribly shrunken face.
An ordinary skull in a frame of gold,
lying in a mass of red robes could
scarcely have been more typical of

threatened a panic, all those wno

To Say a Hurried Pi ^yer.
Hundreds of the women, and even
some of the men, carried children in
their arms.
An important political factor was
introduced into the ceremony by the
entrance Into St. Peter's of Italian
soldiers, who remained there through
out the day to preserve order. Their
presence there in such a capacity, un
precedented in the history of modern
Italy, is important as an indication of
better relations between the govern
ment and the Vatican, as it was by the
consent, if not by the desire of the
Vatican authorities, that they yester
day employed the troops of the Quirin
al in papal territory.
Another feature which is causing
comment, along the same lines is the
fact that Cardinal Oreglia, in receiv
ing a group of the city fathers of
Rome who represent the Clerical
party, charged them to thank also
their liberal colleagues for the mani
festations of sympathy which they
showed during the illness of the pope.
Lord Roberts Will Come Over If His
Duties Permit.
London, July 25. The statement
cabled to the United States to the ef
fect that the British cabinet had ve
toed the proposed visit of Lord Rob
erts to the United States is as inac
curate as the original announcement
that Lord Roberts had determined to
make the visit. The truth is that the
whole matter has always been indefi
nite. Lord Roberts has said, and still
says, that he will visit the United
States in the autumn if his duties will
