Two Men Have Narrow Escape
from Death Near
Sioux City, la.. July 28.—After an
exciting experience with an antomo
bile neai Clear Lake, S. I).,and a nar
row ••scape from death, George R.
Fear. 611 Seventeenh street, haa arriv
ed in Sioux City.
Mr. Fear is the owner of several
valuable farms in Deuel county and
was there last week to look at the
fine crops that are growing on his
lands, in bis travels he kited Sherifl
John W. I awson to take him aliout in
his big car. In making tbe Hidewood
hill in the west part of the county
Satuiday the machine got balky, start
ed back down the hill, turned turtle
and pinned both meu under it in such
a manner that neiher conld reach tbe
battery screw to turn ofi the power.
Farmers at work in a field a quarter
of a mile distant saw the aciident and
ran to the assistance of the men While
under the car tbe clohes of both men
were thoroughly soaked with gasoline,
but fortunately the Ras did not catch
fire. The farmers succeeded in rais
ing the car and getting the men out
of their precarious position.

Wells Fargo Officials Before
Railroad Boali at
Mitchell, July 28.—This afternoon
was neld the hearing between the state
railroad commission and A. J. Lud
low, the traffic manager of the WeMs
Fargo Express company, the company
being called npou lo show why it
should not comply with the state
law adopted by the lust legislature
requiring it to reduce its rates 20 per
cent. Mr. Ludlcw assumed the pos
ition that on Janary 1 the Wells Fargo
company was not doing business in the
state and had no rates to be adjusted
under tde state law th«t it did not
assume to recognize the rates of the
United States Express company as
being of a character ninh enough to
make tbe business self sustaining.
The rate question was discussed very
freely by both sides :.nd a comparison
of rates was made between the Wella
Fargo Express compaify and those of
the American Express company. Mr.
Ludlow stated that when his company
come iuto the state it made its lates on
the mileage basis, which makes them
about tnree times as high as the first
class freight rates of the railroads in
the state. He was much opposed to
making the minimum rate of any
package less than .r»0 cents, while the
oher company's minimum rate was s$-r
cents. The result of the conference
was a declaration on the part of the
commission that while the present
schedule jf express rates established
by the American and other companies
aside from the Wells Fargo company
doim business in tbe state were ap
parently in line with the law passed
by the legislature, the Wells-Faigo
uompany stood out against compliance
with the law. In order to force that
company to adopt the same schedules
in force on other linea it might be
necessary for the railroad commission
to make up aud establish a tariff cover
ing express crates based on distance,
and if so it might mean some slight
changes on the part of the other com
paiiioa. If the Wells-Fargo company
de ides to place the rates under the
HtOu law the aitnation

Disscussion of Matter of Open
ing South Dakota
Pierra, July 28.— It is generally ex
pected that within the next ten days
th" proclamation will be issued, fix
ing the dates of the drawings for fil
ings on Cheyenne liver and Standing
Rock resen ations, and at the same
time fixing the places where the regis
tration will be conducted. Fully
twenty towns are asking for tbe honor
and profit of being made a registration
point, and but about a half dozen will
selections are not yet
known, if they have been made, among
the most probable points are Pierre.
LeBean, Aberdeen, Lemmon and Belle
Fourche. Whether all of these town*
will be in
list is unceitain, but
h11 are considered probable, with pos
sibilities of others. All the alloting
work has been completed ou that part
of the reservations which will be open
ed, and the appraisal forces are busily
at work getting things into shape be
fore tbe first of October.
The probabilities are that the ap
praisal price fixed on the lands for the
northern reservation, will not be so
hign as it was on the Rosebud, where
some of it was as high as six dollars
an acre, as fixed by the terms of the
treaty opening the land to settlement.
It is believed by those who are in
formed in regard to reservation affairs
that a much lower scale price will be
fixed for Cheyenne River and Standing
Rock but that is a matter of detail
yet to be settled. The question of coal
reserve on Cheyenne River has not yet
been announced, and piobably will not
be until later in the all.
Immodest Dress of Women
Photographed and Shown
Minneapolis, Jnly 2h.— If doubt ever
existed in the minds of many as to (he
carrying out of threats made several
days ago that be would photograph
women appearing on streets in peek-a
Ikjos, it was dispelled when Rev. G.
L. Morrill delivered an illustrated
lector* at a local theater Sunday
The sermon was heard by a packed
house, mostly women. At least twun
ty-tivc pictures of Minneapolis women
photoierapbed on Nicollet ave. Satur
day were thrown upon tbe screen.
Some wore low-neck dresses, while
others were shown with tight
form lifting gowns. Immodest ei
posure up to the knees by several
women who were photographed was
the most startling of tbe illustrations,
these womeu coining la for a greater
share of criticism.
Mr. Morrill also exhibited views of
several animals found in the London
Zoo and cotupaied the women with
these. Any woman who is immodest
enough to hold her skirts up to her
knees on tbe principal thoroughfares
of this city should be placed in tbe
same category with these animals, he
said. It is indecent exposure at best,
he declared, and any woman who
cares so little about herself as to pull
up her dresi so men can gaze upon
her fancy hosiery should be consider
ed no hotter than an animal.
Mr. Morrill spent most of Satur
day afternoon securing the photo
graphs. gut several of bis sub
jects uuawares, while others dodged
the camera rays a* ninch as possible
Frequest att mints were made by men
escoiting woni n slated for an exposure
to demolish the camera, and one bare
lv missed breaking the lens

but it will be spread out thin.
