LUVERNE, Minn., July 20.—The
most destructive hail storm that ever
visited this section passed over the
east portion of Rock county this aft
ernoon. The area covered by the storm
is the largest ever known in the North
west. It is reported that the storm of
hail started at Watertown, S. D., and
continued at intervals from that city to
Troskey, near the north line of Rook
county. Here the storm seemed to
spread out, extending east nearly tc
Worthington and South to Sheldon,
The storm reached the most destruct

But Hesse Is Captured in Sensational
Style After Breaking Jail.
Special to The Globe.
LA CROSSE, Wis., July 20.—Simon
Hesse, a riverman, residing in a boat
house near Lynxville, was arrested
charged with abducting Edna Bateman,
a young and prety woman residing in
Lynxville, Hesse carried the woman
off into tl^j woods and was followed and
arrested. The crowd dragged him to the
Lynxville jail and during the night he
escaped by prying off tlie three bars
from a rear window.
A night watchman discovered the es
cape and a posse was organized and
cent after him immediately. Hesse was
discovered in his boathouse, but leap
ing into a skiff pulled rapidly to an is
land in the river. He was folowed, but
standing upon the bank with a loaded
Winchester defied the posse to take
him. As a result of a piece of strat
egy he was grasped from behind be
fore he could fire. He has again been
confined in the Lynxville jail under
strong guard. Hesse served two terms
in the penitentiary heretofore.
fifteen miles wide and thirty-six miles
Over the vast area, with but few ex
ceptions, there is not a straw reported
standing in this county. Six town
ships were struck by the storm, .totally
destroying fully one-third of the crops
in the county. While the storm lasted
less than ten minutes, between two and
three inches of hail fell, fairly beating
the grain into the ground. Cornstalks
were chopped down close to the ground
and trees were stripped clean of their
leaves. On young trees the bark was
fairly peeled off. Not a pane of glass
remains unbroken on the side from
which the storm came, while the paint
on buildings Is practically scraped off.
The crop in this county this year as
a whole was one of the best ever raised.

Beaten by Infirmity the Supfe^me Pontiff Falls Asleep and
Roman World Is Plunged in Profound Grief—
Death to Be Officially Pronounced
by Cardinals Today.
The period of over two weeks that
Pope Leo passed in the shadow of
death was no less wonderful than his
life. His splendid battle against dis
ease was watched the world over with
sympathetic admiration and ended only
after a series of tremendous efforts to
conquer the weakness of his aged
frame by the marvelous will power of
his mind. The pleuro-pneumonia with
which his holiness had been suffering
was scarcely so responsible for his
death as that inevitable decay of tis
sue which ensues upon ninety-three
years of life. The tested steel which
had bent so often before human ills
was bound to break at last.
Tonight the emaciated and lifeless
frame which held so brave a spirit lies
on the bed in.the Vatican beside which
almost all the world has prayed.- The
red damask coverlet rests lightly over
the body, the cafdinal's scarlet cap is
about the shoulders, while on his head
has been placed the papal hood of vel
vet, bordered with ermine. A white
silk handkerchief is bound about his
chin, and in the hands which have
blessed so many thousands has been
placed a crucifix. So Pope Leo will re
main until tomorrow, watched by uni
formed officers of the Noble guard and
rough-clad Franciscan penitentiar»3,
who will keep a .ceaseless vigil until
the burial ceremonies. -i_
Tomorrow the sacred college of car
dinals will assemble for the impres
sive ceremony of officially pronouncing
Pope Leo dead. After this the body
will be taken to the small throne
room adjoining- ||ie death chamber,
where it will '-tie ejhbalmed. The
funeral ceremoift)|6 wilt extend over
nine days, the remains being removed
to the Cathedral of St. Peter's, where
they will lie in, s^late. The ultimate
resting -place of tile dead pontiff will ]
be in the magnificent basilica of St.
John the Lateran.
Pope Leo's final moments were
marked by that same se.renity and de
votion, and when he was conscious that
calm intelligence which is associated
with his 'twenty-five years' pontificate.
His was no easy death. An hour be
fore he died, turning to Dr. Lapponi I
and his devoted vatet, Pio Centra, he
murmured: "The pafh I suffer is most
terrible." Yet his narting words were
not of- the physical anguish that he
suffered, biit Were-,7whispered benedic-'
;tions upon V.JheT"* cardinals,, and his"
neghevys, who..Kne.l|j&t the bedside, and
'the last look of, his almost sightless
(eyes was tdwa"rd:"t'he great ivory cru
•cifix hanging in the death chamber.
Practically all the cardinals now in
Rome, kneeling.at tlie bedside, watch
ed the passage of his soul. Earlier in
the day Cardinal; S^rafino Vannutelli
had impressively pronounced the ab
solution in articulo mortis.
The condition of his holiness varied
from agony to coma. Wishing to re
lieve him. Dr. Maazorti suggested that
morphine should be administered, but
Dr. Lapponi djd not agree, fearing that
the eng. might be quickened.
Of this supreme Dr. Lappo
ni gives":this description:
"Death occurred through exhaustion,
although in the last two hours Pope
Leo made a supreme effort to gather
together all his energies. He succeeded
in recognizing those about him by the
sound of their voices, as his sight was
almost lost. Still, he made a marvelous
display of his energy, and even his
death was really grand. It was re
signed, calm and serene. Very few ex
amples can be given of a man of such
advanced age, after so exhaustive an
illness, showing such supreme courage
in dying. The pontiff's last breath was
taken exactly at four minutes past 4.
I approached a lighted candle to his
mouth three times, according to the
traditional ceremonial, and afterward
declared the pope to be no more.
"I then went to inform Cardinal
Oreglia, the dean of the sacred college,
who immediately assumed full power
and gave orders that the Vatican be
cleared of all curious persons having
no right to be therein. Contempo
raneously, the cardinal instructed Mgr.
Righi, master of ceremonies, to send
the Swiss guards from the Clementine
hall to close all the entrances to the
Vatican and dismiss all persons from
the death chamber, the body beinci in
trusted to the Franciscan peniten
Meantime events of momentous im
portance to Catholic Christendom
were occurring. The death of Pope
Leo meant the passing of the supreme
power into the hands of the sacred
college of cardinals as its temporary
custodian during the interregnum.
The perfect administrative machin
ery of the church provided against the
slightest interruption of the govern
ing authority. As the senior member

to whom the pope today solemnly con
fided the interests of the church, has

Conclave 4re Lacking—Fortunes of Various Candi
dates Have Changed of Late—Comparison With Con
ditions at the Time of Pope Leo's Election—Wide
spread Change in All Departments of the Church.
ROME, July 20. —The greatest Inter
est is now centered in the work of the
holy conclave which is to select the
successor to Leo XIII. It will probably
meet August 3. Speculations, prophe
cies and predictions come from every
direction in favor of the various can
didates. The comparatively long-illness
of Leo has had the effect of narrowing
the chances of some who entered the
contest with what was thought to be
the brightest prospects, while it has
brough into prominence others who at
first were hardly considered. The result
ie that they are all now on about the
same level.
It Is said that there has never been
a conclave in which there are so many
candidates who have a fair chance of
winning. Such a situation might lead
to a struggle of much longer duration
than that of 1878, when Leo was elect
ed. That conclave lasted scarcely three
days. The contest may be prolonged,
especially if, after the early ballots, the
different parties whose exact strength
could only then be established, persist
in remaining faithful to their favorites
instead of joining forces with those of
cpndidates having better chances. In
1878, when Pius IX. died, it was evident
to all that the cardinals who had the
best chance of success were Cardinals
Bilio and Peccl. The former would cer-

DULUTH, Minn., July 20.—Informa
tion given out at a meeting today of
the company which is conducting the
explorations on the famous section 30
on the Vermillion range near Ely in
dicates that an immense find of ore has
been made there, possibly fiften million
tons. The'ore body ranges from fifty
to one hundred feet wide and has been
proved up for a distance of a quarter
of a mile.
Owing to the crumbling nature of the
ore it has been difficult to get through
it with diamond drills and the full ex
tent of the find is not known. This
is the property in which the Clergues
are interested and the option is said to
have been taken in the interest of the
Consolidated Lake Superior company.

Their Chances Equal.
Now there are a half dozen at least
who are entering the conclave with
equal chances of success. It is believed
that the foreign cardinals will ultimate
ly give the casting votes, as, living far
away from Rome, where different fac
tions form and flourish, they will be
impartial, and especially as It is ad
mitted by all that the new pop*- will
be chosen frbm among the Italian can
didates. For the later reason there
cannot be national rivalry among the
The consiedrable talk which is going
the rounds that certain foreign pow
ers might exercise the right of veto in
the conclave is unfounded. What the
powers desire is not that the new pope
should be friendly to any particular
power, but that he should conduct the
affairs of the papacy In a peaceful,
equitable, religious manner, without
stirring up international strife. Indeerl
