A United States judge for the dis
trict of Montana has just decided a
telephone case that will have far
reaching effect. It will compel con
nection between competing lines on
such terms as a commission appoint
ed by the court may determine. This
decision does in effect what a num
ber of state legislatures, including
that of South Dakota, attempted to
Although the second Tuesday in
June, the day upon which the prima
ries are to be held, is more than ten
months distant, there is evidence on
every hand that the old machine
gang in this state is already extreme
ly active. Kittredge, the leader of
the pro-railroad element in the re
publican party, is evidently attend
ing in person to the preliminary or
ganization of the stalwart faction for
the work of holding Brown county in
line. It is also safe to predict the
general election in 1908 will likely
be a very tame affair compared with
the primaries in June next.'
The progressive element of the re
publican party, which makes its
fight against the return of the old
railway domination of state affairs,
cannot again make the mistake of
letting this county go by default.
•Every vote cast in any primary
helps, to swell the total vote
throughout the state for state and
congressional nominees, so that a
careful and systematic fight is likely
to be planned for every precinct by
both contending factions.

Worthy Nebraskan Proposes to 12
Girls Who Adopted Orphan.
Huron, S. D„ July 17.—A few
weeks since a number of Wesslngton
Springs young ladies adopted an or
phan girl and are now giving it a
home. Since the fact became known,
the girls have received numerous ap
plications to adopt other children,
but the mos tinlereKting feature of
the whole affair is that a wealthy Ne
braskan writes offering to marry any
one of the 12 foster mothers and also
adopt and educate the child. The
ladies gave the proposition a busi
nesslike consideration, and in reply
to his letter state that they agree to
make him this offer: The oldest of
the 12 is to accept his proposition of
marriage on the conditions: That
he prove that he is sincere that he
is qualified in every way to contract
marriage that he is amply able to
provide a comfortable home for his
bride and is willing to make provi
sion for her every need and comfort
that he shall abstain from the use of
cigarettes and tobacco in any form
shall not use intoxicating liquors to
any degree shall be chaste and pleas
ant In conversation use no profane
or Improper language shall spend
his evenings at home shall not fre
quent club or pool rooms, nor flirt
with other women, and shall attend
church at least once each Sunday.
Chicago, July 18.—After having
lived in the historic cave near the
car barn bandits, among the sand
dunes of Indiana, foraged like a beast
for food and dressed in naught save a
union suit and two cartridge belts,
the wild men who shot seven persons
in two days and created a reign of
terror In the vicinity of Gary, Pine
Posses of more than 100 policemen
and citizens, many of them using au-
vigilance Is the' tomobiles, tracked the wild man. Be
fore the succeeded in surrounding
their quarry he had fatally wounded
two of their number and bullets from
his gun had lodged in the bodies of
five more.
Lone Policeman Kills Quarry.
But for the bravery of George Han
Ion, the crack shot of the Hammond
police force, more lives would have
paid toll to the blood lust of the wild
man. For Hanlon, after three Gary
policemen had been laid low, swam
alone Into the swamp, a rifle beneath
his shirt, on his back, stalked the
wild man from a knoll in the center
of the swamp and put a bullet
through his head.

When the body of the wild man
was taken to Hammond by the police
it was Identified as that of Julius Po

South Dakota Corn Is Easily as Good
as That of Iowa and Illinois—
Crops of Wheat and All Small
Grains Have Been Helped by the
Showers in Northern Central Part
of State.
Redfield, S. D., July 16.— (Special
to the American.)—The crop pros
pects for the north central part of
South Dakota are at present very
good. The small grain was begin
ning to be somewhat in need of rain,
but heavy showers Saturday and Sun
day have relieved this condition, and
with weather at all seasonable from
now on, there will be a heavy yield
of small grain. The corn prospect
has improved greatly during the last
two weeks, and, while the crop is not
quite so far advanced as usual for
this time of year, still, unless frost
comes unusually early, a good yield
will be produced. From an-extended
trip through the states of Illinois and
Iowa your correspondent has conclud'
ed that the corn crop averages as
good as the other two states.
Is the First Big Term in History of
the County—Besides Murder Cases
Area Number of Highway Bobbery
and Cattle Bustling Cases, Besides
a Big Grist of Civil Suits.
Pierre, S. D., July 16.—(Special to
the American.)—In past yeare, with
a sparse population, the court terms
in the "Empire of Stanley" have not
been long affairs, and that county
has not added a great deal to the
business of the big Sixth circuit But
the term of court which begins in
that county this week promises to be
a long one, attorneys interested ex
pecting it to last at least a month if
the calendar is cleared. The criminal
calendar is especially a long one this
time, with two homicide cases, three
highway robbery charges and about
30 other cases, in whfch rustling of
cattle and horses is charged. Besides
this criminal calendar, a number of
civil cases are up for action, and this
is an indication that In the future the
"iiourt business of this immense coun
ty has to be considered in the judi
cial affairs of the circuit. The homi
cide cases at the. term are one in
which Frank Turner is charged with
the death of Frank Lynn at Interior
several 'weekfe ago. This case will
will probably be a short one, as all
the testimony brought our nthe pre
liminary examination was to the af
fect that Linn had threatened to kill
Turner and was doing his best to
carry out his threat when he was
killed by Turner, after he had
chased Turner around a building
several times, shooting at him at
The other case is that in which
Joseph Tusha is charged with having
caused the death of Clyde Whiting
last fall by putting dynamite in
Whiting's stove,which exploded when
afire was started, killing Whiting
wad severely Injuring a companion.

Doan's Kidney pills cure sick
Mrs. B. F. McMann, of 315 North
Minnesota avenue, Sioux Falls, S.
D., says: "I was troubled for a
long time with heavy bearing down
pain in the loins so prostrating at
times that it made me unfit to do
any housework. I felt all played out
and medicines seemed ft do me no
good. Seeing Doan's Kidney Pills
highly recommended I sent to a drug
store and got a box. They relieved
me at once and the trouble disap
peared, never to return. I also gave
a box of Doan's Kidney Pills to one
of my friends and the remedy cured
her of a similar trouble."

Father Mensing Is Baised to the Office
of Monsignor.
Webster, S. D., July 18.—The most
important event in the history of the
Catholic church of this city was the
ceremonies held here in connection
with the elevatoin of Father D. Men
sing to the office of monsignor. Biscop
O'Gorman of Sioux Falls had charge,
assisted by Monsignor Flynn of Madi

Eddie Gilford, Bicycle Performer, Is
Sought by State Department.
Berlin, July 18.—Inquiry is sought
by the state department at Washing

Gifford, a dhe-legged bicycle rider.
Gifford gave several performances in
Germany, which included a dive into
a tank, but the authorities refused to
permit him to continue because of the
fact that several bays who endeavored
to imitate his tricks were drowned
The whereabouts of the man is un
known to the authorities.
Belief Expressed That Telegraphers'
Strike Will Soon End.
San Francisco, July 18.—As the
result of a conference between Labor
Commissioner Neilil and President S.
J. Small of the Commercial Telegra
phers' union, an end of the telegra
phers' strike has, it is believed, been
brought into sight.
It was hihted'about the telegraph
ers' headquarters In Oakland that
some friction had developed between
President Small and three members of
the executive committee of the Na
tional union who came west with
Commissioner Neill, and one of them
is said to have strongly intimated
that there |p)uld be no extension of
the strike to other cities, whatever
might be th«f outcome here. It is be
lieved that atrong influences will be
brought to persuade the operators to
accept the terms offered by the com'
panies. 1
Whatever!* terms covering wages
and hours a£e agreed upon in settling
the strike, 'the unionists declare they
will insist upon the reinstatement of
all members iiow out.
President Small says he will prob
ably make public the result of^his
conference, attth Commissioner Neill.
He will nojlyet announce whether a
general strUte will be ordered in the
event of the failure of Neill to bring

$100,000,000 THEATRICAL
Combine Will Include the Leading
Theatrical Interests of the United
States and Europe—London, Paris
and Berlin the Important European
Towns in the Combine.
New York, July 18.—Some of the
details of the $100,000,000 theatrical
syndicate that will control the lead
ing theaters and theatrical Interests
in the United Staets and Europe have
been learned here. Klaw & Erlanger
the directing heads of the American
theatrical syndicate, are leaJiag the
movement, and they have sent Levy
Mayer of Chicago, their general coun
sel, to Europe to arrange the details
for the syndicate and to make final
terms with the individual managers
and owners on the other side.
The big theatrical syndicate has
been practically assured ever since
the prominent managers in London,
Paris and Berlin and the other cities
in Europe agreed many months ago
'to pool their issues with the mana'
gers in this country. Six of the
American managers constitute the
present theater syndicate. They are
Messrs. A. Hayman, A. L. Erlanger,
Marc Klaw, Charles Frohman, Sam
uel F. Nixon and J. Fred Zimmer
man. Charles Frohman controls sev'
eral theaters in London. Messrs.
Klaw and Erlanger have been getting
in closer touch each season with the
managers in Europe, and th esuccess
of the syndicate here has made the
important managers in London and
Paris desire to be affiliated with the
men who control the chief theatrical
affairs fthe United States.
Just who will make up the com
plete list of European managers who
will become factors In the new inter'
national syndicate has not been an
nounced, but a man well posted on
the workings of the plans said the
managers in London would likely in
clude Messrs. George Edward, George
Alexander, Frank Gurson, Seymour

Maude, the Messrs. Catti and perhaps
Messrs. Beerbohm Tree and Arthur
Both vaudeville and "legitimate
houses come within the scope of the
plans mapped out by the syndicate
of its extended control in the near
future. Vaudeville, however, as has
been the case with Klaw & Erlanger
in the past, will be the feature par
ticularly cared for.
Marc Klaw, who has been in EU'
rop for several months, has been de
voting a great part of his time to get

The recent decision of the New
York courts that theaters and amuse
ments are not "trade an dcommerce,
and that their combination is not ille
gal, has, it is said, been a great factor
in bringing about this syndicate.

Hitherto Unknown Work Discovered
Among Great Composer's Effects.
Milan, July 18.—In a box of old
papers in Verdi's old home at Santa
Agatha there has been found the
manuscript of a hitherto unknown
opera written by the great composer,
In accordance with the will of Verdi
the contents of this box were to have
been destroyed, and it was while go
ing through the papers preparatory to
carrying out the dead man's wishes
that the opera was found. It has not
yet been decided by Verdi's executors

one of his early works.
New York, July 18.—Announce
ment was made yesterday of the en
gagement of Miss Elsie Ellwood"
daughter of W. L. Ellwood of Dekalb,
111., the steel wire millionaire and
business associate of John W. Gates,
to Said Kalil Haick, who declares he
is wealthy, of a fine Syrian family,
and lately conductor to tourists mak
ing the tour of the holy land.
The friends of Miss Ellwood are
surprised that she should have agreed
to marry a foreigner who accompa
nied her in an employed capacity at
first and continued with her as far as
New York. Both young folks arrived
here last week and plan to marry at
the Ellwood home in Dekalb, 111

Kaiil Haick are surprised that one
they declared a dragoman, a sort of
steward who furnished tents and sup
plies for tourists of the Holy Land
shoul have become engaged to an
American heiress.
"I don't know that they will get
married," said Isaac Ellwood at the
Waldorf-Astoria. "I saw my grand
daughter last Saturday for about ten
minutes just before she left for the
west with her mother and father and
sister. She was feeling saddened then.
Her unhappiness was caused, I sup
pose, by the fact that her father was
surprised and upset by the story she
told him of having become engaged to
the Syrian. I don't know anything
about him, except that he don't claim
to be a prince or-to have any title
