Seven youngsters, unable to suppress, their enthusiasm, and apparently believ- I ing that the recent order of Chief of Police O'Connor did not mean what it said, were last evening prisoners at the central police station. Some of them ■were accused of discharging fiecrackers larger than the law permits, while others, were charged with shooting revolvers. William Lick; 1770 Grand avenue, and i Carl Gersten, 82 West Tenth street, were I walking along the street and were ac cused of discharging a revolver loaded with blank cartidges. When taken to the , central station they were closely ques tioned, and admitted that a large number of empty rifle cartridges in their posses sion were to be loaded with potash and placed on the street car tracks. In reply to questions, they said that they pur chased the blank cartridges from Ken nedy Bros., and the chief ordered that a warrant be issued against the members of the firm for having made the. sale, and gave instructions that all other persons brought in for such offenses should be re quested to tcU where they made their purchases. -The Other Prisoners The other pisoners, who will be com pelled to appear in police court Monday and explain their conduct, were Henry Tallman. 441 St. Anthony avenue; Christ Olson. 1370. Payne avenue; Samuel Wall man, 174 Robertson street, Sidney Bal • lentyre, 261 Constans street, and Paul Hessler. 374 Randolph street. They were charged with a variety of violations of the ordinance, and in all cases but-those against Lick and Gersten the youngsters were released after spending an hour or so behind the bars, giving their names and addresses, and promising to appear in court Monday morning. In nearly all of the cases the boys took their arrest without emotion, not seeming to regard the charge as sufficiently seri ous to warrant, their worrying to any great • ex-tent. They to be.surprised when -they were actually put in a cell. Young Gersten smiled serenely while being i .searched, seeming to regard the affair as a joke, but when the jailor took the keys and started for the cell room he began to argue that he and Lick had not really fir-d the nistol and were just on their wayl to buy the potash. Dealers Are Blamed It is the dealers who sell the boys the cartridges, the large crackers, the potash, the powder and other prohibited articles VI 1 w£, are reall after," explained -Capt. John Clark. "All of the dealers have been notified that the ordinance would be enforced, and having made the sales after *i: ey^ wel warii cd. there is nothing for the department to do but to follow th» instructions of the chief to the letter and Sn?

HOMESEEKERS WILL BE DISAPPOINTED Continued From Eleventh Page more will be added if the heavy travel demands the service. Passenger officials in St. Paul and Minneapolis expect that there will be a heavy immigration movement from Minnesota. Extra equipment will be added to the regular trains to Omaha and Sioux City.jsvhere connection will be made for the reservation. Build Town in One Day The founding of the town of St. Elmo, almost in the middle of the reservation, will be one of the most interesting inci dents of the opening. The site is now occupied by the tepee of a Rosebud Sioux Indian family. On the side tracks of the North-Western road at Bonesteel stands a trainload of mate rial. It includes everything, from frame houses built in sections, to stocks of goods, saloon and gambling outfits, farming implements and everything that pioneers can possibly need. With the firing of the opening gun the trans portation of the outfit to the St. Elmo site will begin, and by night the. town will be doing business at full blast. Three other towns will be started with in the first two days. The railroads which will handle the business to the reservation are mass ing cars and locomotives at Sioux City to handle the extra traffic. The great est crush is expected on the two days after the opening, when about 90 per cent of the landseekers, the unfortu nates who will have drawn blanks, will be trying to leave all at once. Sharpers Plan Fraud Vigilance committees are beinr or- ' ganized by the land seekers gathered at Bonesteel and Yankton to deal out summary punishment at the first effort to carry out a gigantic plan of black mail and fraud which has been discov ered. It is an ancient scheme, depend ent on the ignorance and credulity of of persons entering land, but it was worked with great success at the open- I ings at Oklahoma and Indian territory. The plan is being organized at the | Rosebud reservation by a gang of sharpers who operated it at - Kiowa and Comanche openings in Indian ter ritory. The gang has been widely ad vertising for men to enter land on be half of old soldiers. These, it is ex plain are to be organized and con test papers prepared in advance. *As ' soon as lands are awarded to g<Jod- ! faith settlers contest papers will be ! filed by the stoolpigeon element. The '■ contestant will disappear, but the chiefs of the scheme will undertake to secure withdrawals of the contests, charging therefor as large a fee as the horae- I steaders will stand, all the way from $50 to $1,000. As soon as the fee is paid the "attorney" will produce a formal relinquishment of contest claim and file it. Swear to Do Some Hanging Hundreds of the land seekers are banded together and sworn to hang the first blackmailing contestant who at tempts to raise money by contest. It is now feared there will be serious trou ble, and the homesteaders frankly say they will not have to look very care fully into the cases, because they pro pose to make an early example of some of the suspected characters in order to drive others out. Despite that there has been one mur der at Bonesteel conditions there are remarkably good, and fair order is be ing maintained thus far. The only threat of trouble is in the possibilities of the blackmailing scheme of con testing entries. DEATHS OF THE DAY Special to The Globe AUSTIN. Minn., July 2.—Mrs. C.

This plant, know n as the saplndus utilus, has long been known in Japan China and India. It bears a fruit of about the size of a horse chestnut, smooth and round. The color varies from a yellowish green to brown. The inner part is dark and has an oily kernel. The tree bears fruit in its sixth year and yields from fifty-five to 220 pounds of fruit. By using water or alcohol the soapy ingredient is extracted. The cost of production is said to be small, and the soap, on account of possessing no alkaline qualities, is claimed to be su perior to the ordinary soap of com merce. Frank W.

SUNDAY, JULY 3. 1904 MINNEAPOLIS HORSE STAMPS OUT LIFE OF SMALL BOY Fireman Finds Three-Yeac«O!d Tot Hanging to Animal's Leg Joe Thompson, the three-y*. ->ld son of Joseph Thompson, living at 2912 Eighteenth avenue south, was tram pled to death by a horse In his grand father's barn yesterday afternoon. The little fellow had gone to visit his grandfather at 901 Minnehaha avenue, and early in the afternoon went out to the barn. No one paid any at tention to him, and he evidently had gone in behind the horse to caress him, for when John Hanley, a fireman, hear ing a strange noise in the barn, en tered, he found* the boy" under the horse, with his arms wound tightly around one of its hind legs. The fire man quickly pulled the child out, and he was hurried to Asbury hospital, where he died shortly afterwards. His skull was fractured at the base and he was bruised badly at other parts of the body. CYCLIST AND BIG AUTO IN COLLISION Wheelman Dodges Wagon and Is Bumped by the Chug Chug Wagon Riding down Nicollet avenue yester day morning on his bicycle, D. P. Dean, a sixty-year-old man, Hying at 3408 Stevens avenue, collided with an auto mobile driven by R. W. Cobb, and, al though dragged for quite a distance by the auto, escaped with a sprained ankle and several minor bruises about the body. Mr. Dean takes the down-town trip daily on his cycle for the exercise and yesterday morning was in the busiest section of the avenue, near Washing ton, when the accident occurred. He did not see the automobile and in en deavoring to avoid a wagon coming in the opposite direction he ran straight in front of Webb's big touring car. The cyclist was hurled from his machine, but his left leg caught in the spokes of the front wheel of the bicycle and before the automobile could be brought to a stop he was dragged several yards. Luckily both were going at a slow rate of speed. He was taken to his home in Webb's auto. WIRES WERE CUT ON THE LAUNCH ELEANOR The manner in which the Eleanor exploded on Lake Minnetonka last Thursday evening is being thoroughly investigated, and the fact that the wires connecting the batteries of the boat with the engine had been cut tei; days previous to the.destruction of the launch is exciting ijd little comment. It is probable that the* person re sponsible for the cutting had no ide?. of what the result would be and did it merely in the spirit of a Joke, thinking that it would result in the gasoline leaking out and a tieup in the middle MOSLEMS JOIN TO BUILD A RAILROAD TO MECCA IN spite of some discouraging cir cumstances, the raliroad of the Hedjaz, or the pilgrim's railroad, is be ing pushed forward with unusual en ergy for an Oriental enterprise. The sultan of Turkey has set his heart upon this railroad along the route followed by Mohammedan pil grims from Damascus to Mecca. It is extending day by day toward Mecca, the center of Mohammedan fanaticism, which no white man has visited, ex cept in disguise. The most authoritative and fullest report on the progress and prospects of this unique enterprise has just ap peared in the Mitteilungen of the Im perial Geographical Society of Vienna. The information, collected at Damas cus and Beirut, includes interesting facts that have not before been pub lished. Interest in the railroad is steadily growing in all parts of Islam, and has been stimulated by the Mo hammedan press. Each issue of every paper from India to Egypt sounds the praises of the project of putting an end to the sufferings that myriads of pil grims have endured along this highway to Mecca. Fulsome eulogies are showered upon the promoter of the holy undertaking. All the followers of the prophet are in cesantly assured that they have no duty in life more imperative or meri torious than that of contributing, at any sacrifice, to the construction of the railroad. A specimen or two will illustrate the quality of these effusions. The Tam ar^r£ f Beirut- sai<3 a recent issue: What joy has spread over the whole Mohammedan world at the thought that our master, the chief of all be lievers (God save him!) is building this railroad from Damascus to the holy city of the pilgrimage—a railroad that will 30m the Arabian provinces, the heart of Islam, with the centers of the highest Khalifate and wiH unite all under the glorious Ottoman flag." The Egyptian journal Arhraid al Misri says: "The Hedjaz railroad will, at the very least, be as important in the Mo hammedan world as the Suez canal Is in the world of commerce." A Constantinople paper says: "Every difficulty is being overcome by the wisdom of our sovereign. Our trust in him, however, does not relieve a single follower of Islam from the duty of making severe personal sacrifices to provide the means required for this mighty undertaking, which will be the most glorious" monument of his ma jesty's reign. "If necessary we must make our selves the sacrificial victims of this work in order that it may be gloriously achieved." This sort of literature, spread ev erywhere, is having- remarkable influ ence. There seems no doubt that all the funds required will be raised by subscription supplemented by the con tributions exacted by the sultan's gov ernment throughout his«fempire. Such remote regions as Tunis Al geria, Afghanistan and Turkestan are contributing more liberally than was expected. Really large sums are com ing from the Mohammedans of British India, China and the Dutch East In dies, although their route to Mecca is of the lake. Owing to the explosiou and the fire which ensued, those in vestigating aie unable to reach any conclusion as to the condition of the tank before the unfortunate party left the docks on Thursday evening. Although Mr. George L. Upton, the owner of the launch, is unable to make any statement in regard to the ca tastrophe, his friends remember his saying something about the wires being cut. Little attention was paid to the matter, and Mr. Upton did the repair ing himself. He recalled the fact that he had experienced the same trouble with his old boat almost a year before. Some are inclined to believe that thft person cutting the wires might have gone a little further by doing other damage to the launch which directly was responsible for the explosion. The Eleanor was practically a new boat, and boatmen are of the opinion that it was impossible for anything to go wrong with the engine or gasoline tank in the short time she was in service if they had not been tampered with. Up to a lat* hour last night Mrs. George L. Upt >n's death was the only fatality resulting from the unfortu nate wreck, but her husband is still in a serious condition, and it is hardly ex pected that he will live. WOMAN GUNNING FOR CAT SHOOTS MEN Veteran of Mexican War Stops Bullet While After Pail of Water Being mistaken for a cat by a col ored woman yesterday morning, Sah lon A. Green, eighty-six years old, was shot in the arm with a twenty-two caliber rifle. He was taken to the Asßury hospital, where the bullet was extracted and the old gentleman again returned to his home. He avows that he will carry a sign hereafter labeled "I am not a cat." Mr. Green lives at 3619 Chicago ave nue, and is one of the three veterans of the Mexican war now living in the city. He arose early yesterday morn ing and proceeded to his barn to get a pail of water. Earlier in the morning a cat had been doing stunts in the col ored woman's chicken yard, and with her sans rifle in hand she lay in wait for a return call from the feline thief. On the approach of Mr. Green the chickens commenced to scatter, and as he rounded the corner of the house she let go and the bullet pierced the forearm. He immediately stepped into view and the old woman was almost prostrate with grief as soon as she saw what had happened. While being op erated on at the hospital Green dis played rare grit and refused to take any anaesthetic, despite the fact that the bone was fractured. The wound is not thought to be at all serious.

Lucknow has sent 29,000 rupees; 4,000,000 piasters have come from Bur ma and Southern India. The Beirut Hadikat El Akhbar says that the work of collecting funds is now splendidly organized in India and that 166 commissions have charge of it. Even Natal and Australia are sending their mite. In the Turkish empire a special tax has been established for the railroad of the Hedjaz; in addition to this the entire official class are required to pay a small percentage of their salaries. Each new employe must give an en tire month's salary; and all pay 10 per cent of their salary for May each year. Circumstances have brought about important changes in original plans. The idea of building the road originat ed with the second .secretary of the sultan, Mehemet Izzet Pasha, a little over four years ago. It was enthusiastically adopted by the sultan, and his decision was an nounced by an irade in July, 1900. The sultan had some visionary ideas that vanished as his railroad education progressed. He first decided that no material or labor not of Moslem origin should be employed; but today foreign steel is being imported and Italian «and Aus trian laborers are working on the road bed. The first plan was to make the track broad gauge, but the line is ad vancing as a narrow gauge road. Of course Turkey had no competent engineers for such an enterprise, and so the entire work is materializing un der foreign direction. Few white persons have ever trav eled along even the northern part of this route. From Damascus It takes a southerly direction parallel with the Jordan valley and the Dead sea and from twenty-five to thirty miles west of them. - Some distance- below the Dead sea the route suddenly turns to the south east.to cross the wide red sand waste of Northern Arabia extending nearly to Medina. Then the road strikes south again to Mecca. . The length of the entire line, Damas cus to Mecca, will be 1,054 miles. The first section, Damascus to Amman, 140 miles through fruit and grain lands, was completed in September last. The second section, Amman to El Hassan 102 miles, dry and bleak, is now nearly finished, the track having been carried to the south of the Dead sea. The third section, El Hassan to Mahan, sixty-two miles long, is now being graded and the rails will probably be laid before the end of the year. Sur veys are in progress in the desert be yond Mahan. Thus about a third of the road will be ready for operation this year, but progress across the desert may be slow. No one knows how much the work may be delayed by the possible hos tility of Bedouin tribes or the arid na ture of the country. The pleasant and easier part of the work was at an end last year", for the whole country is as dry as a bone along the southern four-fifths of the route. For at least two-thirds of the way the road ia never likely to have any business excepting the transportation of pilgrims—who, about 1910, may travel between Damascus and Mecca in two to three days, a journcv now made with difficulty and • danger in five or six months. STILLWATER Farmers residing south of Stillwater have arranged with the Northwestern Telephone Exchange company for per mission to connect with the local ex change and a new telephone line will be built to Afton, taking in one of the most prosperous farming districts in this county. A prominent farmer liv ing near Lakelana, says that nearly all of the farmers along the line will con nect with It, giving them a chance to reach the cities by telephone. It is ex pected the new line will be in operation by Sept. 1. The convicts at the prison will have a gala time on Independence day.
