Gov. Nelson yesterday received a re
port from J. V. tfrower.the commission
er of the ltascu State park, The report
is for the past two year*, or since the
last legislature. Accompanying the re
port is a chart which shows the unsatis

permanent reservation. At the last
session of the legislature an act was
passed acceptius from the government
of the United States a trrant of all lands
within the limits of the park not other
wise disposed of. An appropriation
was also made to purchase the nndis
posed-of granted lands of the Northern
Pacific Railroad company, and the
jeeils for the same have been placed

ser syndicate. These owners are. pre
paring to cut and market the growing
timber on their lands. The reservation
is a dense forest of Norway, white and
banks pine, with a considerable growth
of soruce, fir. cedar, ash, oak, elm. bass
wood, sugar maple, aspen and various
other kinds and varieties of timber and
evergreen. The lands of the state and
those of private ownership
Are Closely Intermingled
and adjoining. As soon as the timber
shall have been cut from the lands held
by private owners the whole tract of
thirty-five square miles will become a
burned black waste, the streams and
lakes will dry up and partially disap
pear, and the reservoir dam necessary
to drive the logs through and out from
Itasca and Elk lakes into the Missis
sippi river will drown out every shrub
Standing upon the shores of the hikes.
"Wbeit the timber standing upon the
lands held by the state shall nave been
burned down and drowned out, the
whole purpose and intent of the law
will be silenced forever, and half of
eacli year there will be no Mississippi
river flowing out from Itasca laKe. The
only reniedv to prevent such a result
rests in the lawful right of the state to
acquire by condemnation or otherwise
the {S.JsJo acres not yet acquired.
■' 1 his acquisition, at small cost, will
certainly preserve one of the most for
midable, picturesque and historic spots
iv the Western hemisphere. Between
these two described conditions a choice
must now be made. Two years' longer
delay, and a portion or part of all that
teservation will be a waste.
"As to the value of the park as a re
sort for health, pleasure and recreation,
it has a
World-Wide Reputation.
A tree.such as now stands gr< wine in
the state park, can be cut down and tie
stioyed in a few moments. They can
not be reproduted by nature in less
time than two centuries. The responsi
bility now is, shall the source of the
Mississippi river be preserved to pos
terity as a public park, or shall it be de
stroyed and obliterated forever? The
question rests with you and the legis
lature.
"The past year I have token active
steps to protect the game and tisii with
in liie iimits of thw reservation, with
some success. Much more could hava
been done if the use of Bre arms was
entirely prohibited. In 18'.»3 Indians and

A Beautiful Collection.
"What is there more beautiful than
the portrait of a womanly woman?" was
the remark of a visitor to the llorton
gallery the other day on teeing a paint
ing of a lady iv red and black. Aside
from ihe fascination which a beautiful
face possesses for all, there is a special
interest attached to such a work for the
relatives and loved ones, especially if
the subject of the shadow has passed to
the great majority. A portrait of one's
self, eitner in the sweet innocence of
childhood, the prime of lile, or the ma
turity of age, is something to Ik- cher
ished by every one, particularly when
it has the added interest of a work of
art. And portraiture is an art par ex
cellence consecrated by the custom of
all ages. The (ireeks carved the like
nesses of their celebrities in marble.
The Egyptians painted their portraits
in wax with rude brushes made of reeds
and the moderns apply the more deli
cate mediums of pastel, oil and water
color. A most exquisite collection of
this kind of art can be seen any time ni

AB&QUIIEEY PURE
TURKS AS VICTIMS.
NEW FACE PUT ON THOSE OUT-
BadßS.
Sultan's Officials Claim That Mas
sacres Were Started by
Armenians.
Washington, Dee. s.—The Turkish
legation has received the following
communication as regards the Ar
menian troubles:
"Towards the end of July last, ana
under the instigation of an Armenian
named Ilatnpartzoun. the men of ten
Armenian villages near Itoosh formed
separate bands, and, armed with guns,
daggers, hatchets and other instru
ments, attacked the tribe of Delikan,
killed a few men of that tribe, and
afterward fell on the tribes of Bekiran
and Badikan. These bands burned
alive Hadji, nephew of Euu.er Agha,
one of the chiefs of the Bekiran tribe,
and not only outraged Mussulman
women of the village of Kulliguzat, but
also put them to death in an atrocious
manner. Men were also tortured in a
more ferocious way. Not satisfied with
all these lawless and criminal proceed
ings, the saute bands burned also a few
villages inhabited by Mussulmans.
•■Thanks, however, to the measures
taken by the lawful authorities, the
bands in question were dispersed and
the Insurgent chief, llamparizoum, as
well as the priest, Mighirditch, of Kizil-
Kilisse, and other guilty persons were
arrested and brought before justice.
The statement tbttu published in some
of the European newspapers, that some
of the regular troops fired on defense
less men and women, is utterly untrue.
No individual carrying no arms was
killed. Twenty insurgents, having sur
rendered, were treated with all possible
consideration, and, after their deposi
tions before the legal authorities of
Moosh were taken, they were given
their freedom. It was these twenty
insurgents who Indicated the place
where the chief, llamparlzoum, and his
accomplices were hiding themselves.
The above facts show that among the
insurgents only twenty surrendered,
and that, with the exception of the
brigands who broke in revolt, no one
else was ill-treated."

they will soon be in a condition to an
nounce that all the obstacles in the way
of the formation of a general agreement
are removed. They decided today that,
effective March 1. round trip rates to
the Pacific coast would be advanced $10,
except in the case of the Sha ta route,
which the advance will be only $7.50.
The general meeting of the Western
lines adjourned this morning to allow
the transcontinental lines to meet, but
is scheduled to meet again in the morn
ing. The facility with which the trans
continental lines got together today
practically removes all the obstacles in
the path of the formation of a general
association, although the roads will
meet with no end of trouble when they
take up the question of granting a dif
ferential to the Canadian Pacific. Some
of the roads are strongly disposed to
make a strong fight against allowing
any differential at all, and, as the Ca
nadian Pacific is likely to be rather stiff
in giving up anything of its demands, it
is possible that the association will be
formed, if necessary, with all the North
Pacific coast points left out.
COAL RATE MOVK DROPPED.
North Dakota Railway Commls-
sionera Go Out So:»n.
Nothing probably will ever come of
the effort made by the North Dakota
railroad commissioners to reduce the
rates of the Northern Pacific and Great
Northern on lignite coal in that state.
The commission, when in the city last
Monday, had a conference with Counsel
Mitchell, ot the Northern Pacific, in
reference to these rates, and then ex
pressed the opinion that the railroad
rates on short hauls were reasonable
enough. Should the commission's de
sire to push the matter they could do
little, as this is the last month of their
official existence. Gov. Allin will un
doubtedly appoint a new commission,
the present one being too pronounced
in its sympathy for Populism.
Ex-Senator McCormick, of Grand
Forks, a prominent Democrat, in pay
ing his respects to the commission yes
terday, said: "A North Dakota railroad
commission can do nothing. It has no
powers, and should be abolished. The
fellows who are shouting for reduced
