and All Events Advertised ;.*.'« ',
AVer. Successfully .
Pulled Off.
Even more interesting than -that of the
of the opening day. was yesterday's pro
gramme at the horse show: Though the
attendance was not everything thai
could be desired, a keen ' Interest was"
manifested by those present, and th.i
pretty gowns of the women in the boxes
gave the grand stand a gay appearance
and relieved the gloom of the empty
seats in the rear. There were more
women than men present in-the grand,
stand yesterday and the latter appar
ently took the liveliest interest in the
judging, and many showed themselves to
be well posted on points. The Minnesota
State band played a lively programme
during the afternoon, which the horses
seemed to enjoy as thoroughly as the
people who came to see them, for they
pranced about in conscious pride.
Owing to the large number of entries
the judging began yesterday at 2 o'clock.
There were, in ail, eleven events on the
programme* and some of them consumed
considerable time, as the horses were put
through several, maneuvers familiar to
expert horsemen. One of the interesting
events yesterday was Class 12. This con
sisted of a pair of cobs to a park wagon,
driven tandc.n for awhile anß then, at a
given signal, the leader was unhitched
and saddled in the ring and sent over
the hurdles. Only the horses were judg- !
ed in this event. The first horse over
the hurdles belonged to M. D. Munn. It
receives an extra 5 per cent in judging
the awards.

Hart N. Cook, former chief of the fire
department; Thomas Carey, former su
perintendent of the firm alarm system,
and Assistant Chief. Arthur Martin have
sued the city for salaries claimed to-be
due. The amounts aggregate $6,664.61.
The complaints state that the action
of the council, in 1896, in reducing the
salaries paid fire department officials
was illegal, Inasmuch as their salaries
were fixed by the state statutes.

busy ones. An army of men is working
at the grounds, striving to bring order
out of chaos, and have made most satis

show for public inspection. Practically
all of the machinery exhibits are on the
grounds, the holders of 1 concessions are

cultural exhibits are being placed in the
buildings. ' % "".-7 ■
Most of the live "stock is still to arrive.
Some of-the cattle herds are on hand,
and a few swine and sheep are in the
pens. But yesterday none of the horses
had reached St. Paul, although one of the
big exhibits was expected hourly. The
horses from Minnesota—and surrounding
states Will reach St. Paul today, and will
be given places in the barns. The horses
that are te come from lowa state fair

afternoon, when three big special trains
will bring the exhibits that have been
shown at Dcs Moines.
From that time until the gates of the
state fair are thrown open on Monday,

be housed in this building, have aroused
the keenest rivalry throughout the state,

place for making this important display
is being apreciated. The exhibits will
faithfully portray the distinctive fea
tures that pertain to each of the counties
represented. 77--?"; - 77'
Executive Agent Fullerton is Installing
in the east wing cf the main exposition
building an exhibit that is expected to
attract unusual attention, especially from
the people from outside of Minnesota.
He is arranging in artistic order a dis
play of thirty-two varieties of live fish
and a comprehensive showing of the
game of the state. The fish will be dis
played in specially constructed aquariums
that will be filled with running water.
The walls are adorned with the mounted
heads of moose, elk and deer, seized
from illegal hunters.
Arrangements have been made for the
inspection of the live stock exhibit by
Vice President Roosevelt, who will be
the speaker of the day "and a guest of
honor of the state. The animals will be •
brought from their quarters and lined
up along the streets separating the ex
hibit barns. Col. Roosevelt's formal
opening address is to be made on Mon
day at 11 o'clock. He-will have a place
,in : the judges' box and the audience will
be seated in the grand \ stand, for which
no admission 1 charge will be made. A
reception to Col. Roosevelt, luncheon, the
review of live stock and a review of the

Supt. Cosgrove, in charge of the gates,-
desires that it be made plain that the
usual custom is to be followed this yea*
and that the gates are to be closed to
the public tomorrow. The exhibitors,
however, will have access to the grounds
at all times. Any display that is not on
the grounds \by Sunday-* night will not
be allowed to compete for premiums or
to occupy space.
The sale of privileges £his year has
been unusually brisk and remunerative.
The society has had more privileges to
sell and has realized a better price than
ever before, according to the statements
made by Supt. Munro. It has been found
necessary to plait an additional midway
between the poultry building and the.
grand stand, in order to accommodate the
late arrivals. ,V;^>^"'- 77-: -
It has been suggested that arrange
ments should be made by the game and
fish commission to retain the mounted
animal heads that are to be offered for
sale in connection with the fish and game
exhibit. It is urged that these varieties
of animals will soon become extinct in
Minnesota and that these splendid speci
mens should be preserved, to be installed
in.the new state capitol, or some other
suitable place.

Regarding the Morning Cap.
"Oh how hard it was to part with cof
fee, but the continued trouble with con
stipation and belching was such that 1
finally brought myself to leave it off.
Then the question was, what should" we
use for the morning drink? Tea was
worse for us than coffee; chocolate and
cccoa we soon tired of; milk was not
liked very well, and hot water we could
not endure.
About two years ago we struck upon
Postum Food Coffee, and have never
been without it since. We have seven
children. Our baby, now eighteen months
old, would not take milk, so we tried
Postum and found* she liked it and it
agreed with her perfectly. She is today,
and has been, one of the healthiest
babies in the state. I use about two
thirds Postum and one-third milk and a
teaspoon of sugar, and put it Into her
bottle. If you could have seen her eyes
sparkle and hear her say 'good' today
when I gave it to her, you would believe
me that she likes it. . ■
If I was matron of an infants* home,
every child would be raised on Postum.
Many of my friends say: 'You are look
ing so well!' I reply: 'I am welh I drink
Postum Food Coffee. I have .no more
trouble with constipation, and know that
I owe my good health to God and Postum
Food Coffee.'
I am writing this letter because I want
to tell you how much good the Postum
has;- done us, but if you knew I how I
shrink from publicity, you, would not
publish this letter, at least not over my
name.*'-- O." - * '

The wholesale removal of city hall jani

at the meeting of the city hall and court

failed to materialize. A difference as to
who should go seemed to be the difficulty,
and for this reason no action was taken.

Fergus Falls Man Thought to Be a
I ■ . Possibility— Cities
Will Probably Be
S_.ut Ont.
Thra matter of a successor to Robert G.
Evan, is still the principal subject of
discussion in political circles, although
all talk on the subjet is mere conjecture,
nothing definite being known, even by
those supposed to be on the inside. The
feeling that it should, and will, go out
side the Twin Cities prevails more
strongly than ever, and the general sen
timent continues to weave the honor
around Charlie Haupt, of Fergus Falls.
The.friends of the various candidates are
becoming more active and a real scram
ble for the place is Imminent. The First
district has taken steps to inaugurate a
red-hot campaign for a First district
man. The members of the bar in that
district will hold a- meeting In St. Paul
on Tuesday next to discuss the situation,
and. decide upon.a.First district man to
be vigorously pushed for the honor. The
chances seem to favor the recommenda
tion of A. D. Gray, of Preston, one of
the leading attorneys and Republican
campaigners in Southern Minnesota. Sup
ported by the entire district his candidacy
would be very formidable. Sam Langum
is giving Gray a big boom for the place.
Langum insists that the First district
deserves the place. He says that banner
Republican district has never had its
just share of federal appointments, and
now Is the time to remedy this oversight.
Mr. Langum says:
"His ripe experience, and splendid legal
attainments would particularly fit him
for this the chief prosecuting officer of
the government, for the district of Min
nesota. In his hands the business of the?
government would receive intelligent
and vigorous attention at all times; ln
other words, he is in every respect com
petent to handle the intricate and ardu
ous work of the office. He has long been
recognized as one of the foremost attor
neys in the state."
' One of the latest names suggested is
that of C. J. Gunderson, of Alexandria,
said to be a very close friend of Sena
tor Nelson. Mr. Gunderson is now in St.
Paul, but will not talk of the matter.
Representative Peterson, of Minneapolis,
says he does not want the place, Out
Victor J. Welch, of the Flour City, does.
"Welch is also said to have a particular
claim upon Senator Nelson. It is said
that Senator Nelson wants Fred yon
Baumbach, collector of internal revenue,
reappointed when his term expires in
December, and is willing to give the
other appointment to Senator Clapp.
Congressman Eddy says that either Ed
Young or Charlie Haupt would fit the
place to perfection. By the time the
First district has selected a candidate it
is very likely that the other districts wih
have taken similar action, narrowing the
field- .down, and making fairly accurate
predictions possible.
Theory Gains Ground That Explo-
sion of "Boiler "Watt Due to
-, Negligence of the
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 30.—1t Is now
reasonably certain that at least twenty
eight persons perished as a result of th*
explosion of one of the boilers of the
steamer City of Trenton on the Delaware
river above this city on Wednesday
afternoon. This conclusion is reached by
the police authorities through the fact
that seventeen persons who are reported
by their relatives or friends to have been
on the steamer, have not yet been found.
These missing persons, with eleven bodies
already recovered, make a total of twen
ty-eight. Ten persons are still in a
serious condition as a result of the dis
aster, of whom four are in a critical con
dition and may die.
The work'of searching for the victims
has been kept up incessantly since the
explosion occurred. Two bodies were re
covered from the river today and were
taken to the morgue. Up to a late hour
tonight they had not been identified. Pre
suming that these two bodies, along with
the two others in the morgue that are
charred beyond recognition, are four of
the missing persons, it would reduce the
missing list to seventeen.
The city and federal boiler inspectors
are rigidly pursuing their investigation,
but they cannot accomplish much until
the exploded boiler, which was blown
clean out of the vessel into the middle
of. the river, has been recovered. The
owners of the steamer have consented to
raise and place it at the disposal of the
authorities. The theory that water was
let into the boiler after lt had become
dry and as a< result the crown sheet blew
out. is gaining ground among experts.
This, engineers claim, could happen only
through the negligence of the engineer.
The wrecked vessel was floated today
and towed down the river to Neafie &
Levy's shipyard, where a more minute
inspection of the interior of the steamer
will be made.
Neither Chief Engineer Murphy, of the
City of Trenton, nor the company will
make a statement until the proposed
court of inquiry is held by the United
States inspector of steam vessels.
