Minneapolis, Nov. 22.—Heino Lun deen, aged twenty-three, of Moor head, Minn., was murdered by freight train robbers a short distance north of Elk River. In company with four friends and two men who are not known to the members of the party or which L«un deen was a member, l.undeen boarded a combination mail and baggage car at Staples. When near Elk River the two men aroused Lundeen's four companions and relieved them of three watches and $50 in money. l.undeen was dif ficult to arouse and his apparent in difference to the kicks of the robbers seemed to exasperate them, for one of them drew a revolver and fired two shots at Lundeen, one of which killed him instantly and narrowly missed Adolph Berquist, who was one of the part v. The four survivors of the holdup were forced to Jump from the train, which was running at a high rate of speed. Sheriff Ward of Sherburne county has notified the St. Paul police that the murderers had been captured at Rogers Siding. Minn.

MYSTERY STILL UNSOLVED CHICAGO AUTHORITIES UNABLE TQ) FIND THE SLAYER OF JOHN W. BATE, JR. Chicago. Nov. 22—Search for the murderer of John W. Bate, Jr., the young chaflfeur who was found dead in an automobile near Lemont, was continued during the day. The fact that the mysterious "Mr. Dove" who ordered the machine from the Audi torium hotel has not appeared to aid iu solving the problem caused the po lice to believe that beyond doubt the passenger with the checked suit and the i«i necktie is the man they are seeking. That Dove had two victims is a new theory developed by the dis covery of blood under the cushion of the rear seat of the automobile. One theory ,as to how "Dove" was able to escape without being seen by men who would remember him in the light ot the description which has been fur nished is that Dove" had in the can vass suit case which he carried anoth er suit of clothes. It is now thought he removed his blood stained garments and donned the others, afterward ty ing his cast-off cothing into a bundle, for which search has been instituted. Two Bullets in His Head. A post mortem examination showed that two bullets entered Bate's head in such short succession that their courses were nearly identical. The coroner's physician said this indicated the murderer was either highly excited or wished to make sure of Bate's death. Either one of the bullets would have proved fatal. Detectives at work on the case have abandoned the theory that double murder was committed and are pro ceeding on the assumption that Bate's only passenger on the fatal trip was the missing "Dove." John Heller, the farmer who first told of heariug a woman's voice raised in dispute among the angry tones of the man, has cnanged his statement and now thinks there was no woman's voice. John W. Bate, father of the murdered man, says that his son's voice was high pitched and might have been taken for a woman's In a quar rel. Upon th* fact that the heavy time piece In front of the machine had been wrenched off another theory is based that In a quarrel Bate might havo wrenched the heavy watch loose and struck his passenger over the head, stunning "Dove," who, It Is argued on that assumption, later revived ana shot Bate. This, it is said, would account for the blood stains on the cushions and vehicle so far apart. yf v-4.h & a V a v V *1 WANT RATES ADJUSTED GOVERNORS VAN CANT AN& CUM- MINS CONFER WITH PRESI DENT ROOSEVELT, ASK KOBE POWER FGH COMMISSION WOULD HAVE INTERSTATE COM- MERCE TRIBUNAL REGULATE FREIGHT RATES.

Higbie, an o! filial of the National Lumber Dealers' association, called on the president to urge him to use his influence to sec ure the enactment of a law which would confer upon the interstate commerce commission power to fix railway freight rates in the commerce between states. The conference was arranged by Chairman Bacon and by his invi tation Governors Van Sant and Cum mins were present. Governor Lafol lettte of Wisconsin was to have been a member of the delegation, but was un able to come to Washington. The subject was considered by the president and the delegation at some length, the members of the party pre senting their views as individuals and the resolutions adopted by the inter state commerce law convention, which was held in St. Louis in October. The convention included delegates from more than 3uo commercial and bus iness bodies throughout the country. It was pointed out to the president that for ten years prior t- 1897 the inter state commerce commission had exer cised the power to adjust railroad freight rates in order to prevent dis crimination, but that since that time, by reason of a decision of the United States supreme court, that power ha 1 been denied the commission. It Whit* Miner Shot and Fatally Injur ed by Negro. Des Moines, la., Nov. 22.—Race war is regarded as imminent at Fraser, la., where Thomas Albright, a white miner, was Saturday night shot an! mortally wounded by James Price, a negro. The white miners held a meet ing during the afternoon and voted to refuse to work longer with the ne groes. They accused the negroes of having aided Price to make his es cape and the feeling is intense. There are from thirty-five to fifty negroes in the mining camp and about 1,200 whites. Both sides are heavily armed. A negro, thought to be Price, was seen near Ogden. seven or eight miles from Fraser. He answers the de scription of the man wanted and 011 seeing that he was discovered con cealed himself in a corn field. A posse from Ogden is searching for aim and another body of miners from Ogden is working the river in that di rection. while still another body is making a thorough search of all the negro huts in Fraser. If Price is caught it is believed that the miners, in their present frame of mind, will do him violence. Albright is still alive, but the doc tors say he cannot survive. MYSTERIOUS MURDER CASE.
