SELLS WON'T HAVE IT
IOWA DKMOCRATIC LEADER HtS FISES XOMIXATIOX FOR ' GOVEiRXOR BRYAN LIKELY TO BE IGNORED ReafCrntation of Principles of Knn mis City I'latform Concerning Monetary UneMtion Will : Probably lie Passed. 1 r>ES MOINEB, lowa, Aug. 20.— Practi cally all the. Democratic leaders of the have arrived here to attend the state convention which opens tomorrow in the 'Auditorium at 11 o'clock. The convention will place in nomination candidates :"i" governor, lieutenant governor, railroad commissioner and supreme judge. Reaflirmatlon of, the principles adopted by the Kansas City platform concerning the monetary question undoubtedly will be passed. John S. Murphy, of Dubuque, the free silver men's lea i- •'. announced that his adherents will be content to have a simple indorsement of the plat form, without any elaboration as to "doc trine. They insist, howevi r, that those who oppose the Kansas City platform will not number more than aut out of the 1,400 delegates. Cato Bells, of Vinton, who has been re gai«7»,l as the foremost candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor, is sued) a statement last evening, in vhieh he declares he is not a candidate. Mr. Bells rays: More than two months ago T gave out the statement that I would not be a can didate for the Democratic nomination for governor, and I have not changed my mind since. My especial interest in the work of the coming sta'.e convention is that a courageous platform be adopted, which shall contain an .aggressive but tenable and fairly disposed plank, favor. Ing the taxation of railways, the same as farm and city property, and the nomina tion of a candidate for governor known to be in full sympathy with the platform, who will inspire the confidence of all who are opposed to railroad domination and Inequitable taxation. While this statement does aot talo Mr. Sells entirely out <>f the Held, there is ■i to believe he will not seett the nomination in any sense, and that under pressure he will say he will no* ih< nomination under any circumstances. Other candidates now being df.s< H. .T. Stiger, of Tama county; T. ,T. Phillips, ox-mayor of Ottumwa; (x- Benator W. W. Dodge, of Burlington. and John T. Hamilton, of Cedar Rapids. Several others are considered, but in a remote way, as possibilities. Jona T. Hamilton, of Cedar Rapids, is likely to develop Into a formidable candidate, as there is a probability the Sells following Will be shifted to him. Tin genuine reform element of the party has been stirred to fever heat by the circulation of an evidently authentic report that a leading railroad attorney, in close touch with the Burlington and J. W. Blythe, is sending out letters in furtherance of a scheme to get a rail road man on the head of the tick t. It is said the railway Influences will rot attempt to restrict the platform, as they fear their work would )>•■ too patent. But if they can secure the nomination of a man friendly to their interests, they will cripple tne eft, ct of the party's ac tion and hamper it in any contest that ina> come up two years from now in case a Republican legislature fails next win ter to enact any legislation looking to ward equitable taxation.

Tradition says "woman must suf fer," and young women are so taught, Inhere is a little truth and a great deal of exaggeration in this. If a young woman suffers severely she needs treat ment, and her mother should see that she gets it. Many mothers hesitate to take their daughters to a physician for examina tion : but no mother need hesitate to write freely about her daughter or herself to Mrs. Pinkham's Laboratory at Lynn, Mass., and secure from a woman the most efficient advice with* out charge. Mrs. August Pfalzgraf, of South Byron, Wis., mother of the young lady whose portrait we here publish, wrote In January. 1899, saying- her daughter had suffered for two years with irreg ular menstruation — had headache all the time, and pain in her side, feet swelled, and was generally miserable. ■ She received an answer promptly with advice, and under date of March, ISO 9, the mother writes again that Lydia E.

He stated trmt tT»e- "price was t o. b. on track in Duluth and Mr. Phelpf "appfieaT fdf IKB price of the same coal at the same pofrii. The Northwestern Fuel company, of this city, which has the contract, says the price of $3.85 was for coal delivered at the school. This allows about 60 cents for the ha-ul which is about two or three miles and a long way up hill. Ordinarily the companies get 50 cents a ton for delivering coal in Duluth, but claim that the longer haul to the normal makes it worth 60 cents. Mr. Phelps could have learned of this error by in quiring at the office of the Northwestern Fu< 1 company here. At its office today It was asset ted that if the normal board repudiates the contract. It cannot make a new one under $1 a ton. NOTABLE GATHERING. Former Superintendents at St. Cloud Itcvi«it tbc Institution. ST CLOUD, Minn., Aug. 20.—(Special.) —Supt.

The forenoon _was spent in renewing acquaintances and Inspecting the institu tion, the older superintendents finding much in the way of improvements and methods since the years in which they in re in full charge. The regular morn ing- military drill, in which practically all uf the iiimatea take part, was delay, ft until after the arrival of the guests of the day. Then followed a trip through the difti rent portions of the Institution. Mrs. Randall took charge, of the guests at noon, and lunch w:is served at the .11 home. This afternoon the mom bera of the party were driven to Pleas ant hik.- for an outing, returning late in the evening. This is probably the first occasion where such a picnic has been lv Id at which all of the superintendents of a state institution have been present.

WINONA, Minn., Aug. 20.—(Special.)— Further Information has been received here regarding the two strangers in tho city last week looking up railway mat t< is. Some more of the information that they piTiiri d here has leaked out, and from the nature of their inquiries thers is no longer any reason to doubt that the road desires a more direct entrance into the city than the roundabout line of the Winona t t Western road, and that it is likely that a direct connection will be made with the Milwaukee & St. Paul track at some point between this city and Minnesota City. It is understood that the Great Western is also seriously considering a Wisconsin connection with the purchase of the Winona & Western road if it is mad. The strangers made careful inquiries as to thf bridge facili ties for crossing tho river, and it is thought that if no arrangements for the use of the Green Buy tracks is made, the proposed new line to Eau Claire may be built. Rev. Father Meier, pastor of St. Jo seph's church in this city, went to Ma zeppa today and took charge of the con secration ceremonies for two bells in St. Peter's and St. Paul's church of that vil lage.

THE ST. PAUt, GLOBE, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, lOui. - TOWN. ALL TORN UP BASEBALL FRACAS AT redwood FALLS EXCITES mich "chit-chat' MINISTERS ARE NOT UPHELD Member* of Different Churches Take Exception to Way They Have Been : ..■ " . Dolug. ?£'?■ REDWOOD FALLS, Minn., Aug. 20.— CSpecial.)—This town is all torn up over the efforts of the preach ers to interfere with Sunday base ball playing. Even the churches are di vided and no one minister can hold his congregation together In an opinion of whether his action was right or wrong. Many prominent church members are em phatic in their denunciation of the policy of the ministers. The outcome of the af fair bids fair to have a far-reaching in fluence one way or another. The balance of the sentiment Is plainly with the ball players. Their reason for this stand, a number of the prominent citizens state, is that although they do not advocate Sunday amusements of any kind, they were given the impression that the action taken by the ministers and others was not animated by a spirit of justice. There were three ministers ar rested by the advocates of Sunday ball playing and six church members, ail charged with witnessing and contributing to assist in Sunday amusements. The only ball players arrested were four ot the local club. The trial was postponed for one day beca-use of inability to 'te the county attorney, who is awa\ . . home. StijlwaterJJcw^ There was an excited populace In Still water yesterday, all because the Stillwa ter Water company had turned McKusick lake water ioto the water mains in tho residence district in place of the spring water that had been furnished for many years. Supt. Harrison, of the water company, said Monday that the water company anticipated a shortage of spring water provided H. C. Farmer succ-ei-.l .1 in connecting the spring on his property with a sewer which he is now building, and in that event It would become neces sary for the water company to pump McKuslek lake water into the reservoirs and mains. He made arrangements to start the pump near McKusldS lake at once, but no one for a moment suspect od that lake water would be found in the mains yesterday morningl. The pumps k( pt going all nig-ht, and there was no spring water in slight except a few drops that had been left in mains that had not been tapped. Citizens became excited when the situation became known, and they gathered on street corners to con demn the water company and Mr. Far mer, rot knowing upon whom to place the actual blame. They Insisted that a terrible stench arose from the McKusick lako water, and that it was not lit Cor culinary purposes, to say nothing of its fttnesg. for drinking. Talks of injunctions and restraining orders could be heard on all corners, and officers of the board of health were waiting to act, on the state ment that the lake water Is not whoie somi;. Suggestions were marie that sam ples of the water be sent to the state board of 'health for analysis, and also that a board of health expert be sent here to vi^w the lake from which the water supply is taken. S-upt. Harrison, when seen by aGI ob c correspondent, said that the water com pany did not intend to continue pumping the water, as long as there is enough spring water, and that the spring water pumps had again been started. He saM: "We started the pumps to se« If every thing was all right, and we found an air leak and were compelled to pump much longer than we expected. We found the leak and repaired it, and art. now Batisfled that everything is all right at the pumping station, provided it be comes necessary for us to resort to lake water.' 1 Tho cause of the contention is the fact that 11. C. Farmer some time ago re ceived permission from the city council to connect his spring, adjoining that of the water company, with a main leading to his stable, and he now has a fore ■ of men at work laying a ten-Inch sewer pipe to the main sewer, through which he can run up nearly all the spring- water into the lake if he so chooses. It Is vir tually a light between Mr. Farmer and the water company, and by reason of the use of lake water citiens are com pelled to bear the brunt of the burden. TCriek Makey, who a few weeks ago killed a Finlander in a quarrel at Smd strne, Minn., is to be defended by Hon. J. C. Nethaway, of Stfllwater. Maker's brother-in-law came here Monday to. vis it Makey, who is confimd in the Wash ington county jail for safekeeping, and while hero retained Mr. Nethaway. John Meyers a*ld John Burdaghs were in tho municipal court yesterday charged with a breach of the peace. Myers Baa been boarding at the home of Rurdaghs, but he became unbearable and Burdaghs f.rdrred him out. He refused to go and Kurdaghs deliberately threw him out. The- hearing will occur this morning. The boom shut down yesterday and will remain closed until tomorrow morn ing owing to low water. The water In the. lake registers about two feet and five-tenths above low-water mark. The residence of Adolph Drech.sler was totally destroyed by fire Last night the less amounting to $1,100; was insured for $800. Fire supposedly caused by lamp ex plod ing. The city council at its meeting last evening adopted the report instructing the ordinance committee to prepare an or dinance granting the Stlllwater "Water works company hydrant rental of $66 per year for each hydrant. Thte will prob ably not be accepted by the company and litigation is almost sure to follow. 1 ' ij Minneapolis News, Will Help Retailers. The lumber manufacturers, at the semi annual meeting of the Mississippi Val ley Lumbermen's association yesterday at the West hotel, decided to stand by the retail dalers throughout the coun try, and to desist from selling at retail rates to men they think should be pa trons of country yards. This does not mean that they will not sell to consumers. The manufacturers will stand by the retailers and allow them a profit, even on sales with which they have no connection. A resolution was adopted by the asso ciation defining the limits of retail yards and the attitude of the association to wards retailers and retail associations The most important clause was one in which it was set forth that all persons buying from manufacturers for shipment except retail dealers sfoall be compelled to pay 10 per cent above the wholesale price, the freigiht as well; that this 10 per cent shall be turned over to the sec retary of the Mississippi Valley associa tion to be distributed among the retail lumber yards in the district to which the shipment was made. Most Fight the I'lague. A serious problem confronts the Min nesota and Wisconsin loggers. There are grave fears of an outbreak of smallpox in the lumber camps during the winter Last year many of the camps were vis ited by the plague, and some camps were quarantined by the health authorities. A workman broke quarantine at one camp, and while maing his escape was killed by one of the quarantine guards Employers had much difficulty In holding their crews as a result of the scare In the Minnesota and Wisconsin pineries. While the state board of health took extreme measures in an attempt to wipe out the disease in and about the camps during the spring- and summer, there Is danger still, and reports from Lake Su perior districts say the disease is preva lent at camps where summer logging has been carried on.

SENOR VICUNA DEAD CHILEAN MINISTER TO THE UNITED STATES PASSES AWAY AT BUFFALO WELL LIKED AT THE CAPITAL His Flnat Service at Wellington Wiw In IS7O, as tH rHt Secre tary of Kift fouutr} ■ h Lfßatlon. WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.—The state de partment is advistd by telegraph of the death of Senor Don Carlos Morla Vicuna, minister from Chile to the United States, which occurred at Buffalo this morning. Senor Vicuna was one of the best known South American statesmen. The notification came from Senor In fanta, first secretary of.the Chilean lega tion, who has been with the minister at Buffalo, and gave no details beyond the simple announcement that Senor Vicuna had passed away. He had been ill for some time with pneumonia and after throwing off the first attack suffered a relapse from which he was unable to rally. Owing to his being the diplomatic representative of Chile to the United States, the government will show every consideration of respect and honor to the deceased. Beside being minister from Chile, he was commissioner to the Pan- American exposition and lately a delegate on the Chilean claims commission. Senor Vicuna came to Washington about three years ago, succeeding Min ister Gana, who was transferred to Lon don. The Vicunas have been prominent in South American affairs, and the min ister soon endeared himself to the officials and diplomatists in Washington by his charming personality and his ability. He was accompanied by his wife and family who have been an interesting acquisition to the diplomatic circle. Of late the le gation in Washington has been closed, the minister and family and the entire official establishment being removed to Buffalo, where Chile had taken the lead of South American republics in the mag nitude of its exhibit. Soon after the re ceipt of the dispatch announcing the minister's death, Secretary Hay sent a message of condolence to the bereaved relatives and friends. A dispatch was sent from the sfpte de partment to Director General Buchanan, Of the exposition at Buffalo, authorizing him to represent th^ department at Bucfa ceremonies as will be held for the late minister, and asking him to send a floral wreath in the name of the department. Minister Vicuna began his diplomatic) career in Waahing-ton la(1870, as ilrst sec retary of the Chilean |< gation, serving in that capacity for two years, and was then transferred to London. Subsequent ly, while filling the same office to the legation in Paris, ht> was appointed financial secretary of,.Chile in connection with the various European legations. In 1S!)5 he was appointed envoy extraordinary and minister plenlp"bterit!ary to the re publics of Uruguay and Paraguay, and in 1896 was transferred to act in that ca pacity in the Argentine Republic. During the latter part of 1896-he was made secre tary of state in the Chilean cabinet, and after holding that office for a period of ten months, was sent as minister to the United States.

CZAR TO VISIT FRANCE WILL. BE PRIiSIDEXT LOI'BET'S GUEST ABOLT SEPT, 15. PARIS, Aug. 20.—The Parisians were delighted today by the unexpected an nouncement that the czar of Rusia had accepted President Loubet's invitation to witness the close of the grand maneu vers at Rheims, and that he will land at Dunkirk after having previously witness ed, with President Loubct, a review of the northern squadron, which will wel come his majesty to French waters, it is also said that the czarina will accom pany the czar during his visit to France. There is a drop of bitterness, however, mingled in the cup of joy, and that is that the czar will stop on his way for the purpose of seeing Emperor William of Germany. But the papers are consol ing the Parisians with assertions that the interview between the czar and Emperor William will take place at sea, off Dant zlc, bo the czar will not set foot on Ger man soil before treading that of France. The Temps says the visit was personally arranged between President Loubet and the czar themselves, through the Inter mediary of a Russian court official. President Loubet only informed the min isters a fortnight ago, when the matter was practically settled. He then showed them the warm letter of invitation which he had sent to the czar, and the cordial acceptance which was shortly afterward The Temps also says the foreign office has no news of an intended meeting of the czar, Emperor William and King Edward at Kiel Sept. 7, as telegraphed from Berlin this afternoon. The foreign office thinks It can even deny the truth of the story. The papers already are publishing elab orate so-called official programmes of the visit, but the Correspondent of the Associated Press learns .from the foreign office here that these are largely im aginary, as even the. exact dates of the arrival and departure of the czar are not fixed. The only thllg certain is that ho will arrive betweenjsept. 15 and 20. He will remain four or: five days and w'll join the czarina, wht> v.-ill come by the land route to Complegne, to which place he will proceed from Rheims, where he and President Loußef 'will review 150,000 troops about Sept. If*. The officials of the foreign office irti. mate that the exact dates are purposely withheld, In order to prevent the plot ting of anarchists and others. Xew Uiahop of Durham.
