Physicians Hope On , But a Crisis Is
After a day of apparent Improve-
ment , Gov. Johnson Friday night , at
Rochester , Minn. , was at death's door
and no encouragement was given by
his physicians that would last through
the night. Up to 3 o'clock In the af-
ternoon the doctors were very opti-
mistic concerning the condition of
their patient , but shortly after that
time a sudden relapse occurred and
Mrs. Johnson was hastily summoned
to the sick room. For some hours no
information could be obtained as to
Mr. Johnson's condition , but about 7
o'clock a bulletin was issued stating
that the governor had had a relapse
and was In a critical condition.
Dr. William J. Mayo : admitted that
the patient's condition was extremely
serious and intimated that the worst
might be expected. While the doctors
did not abandon hope , they refused to
hold out any encouragement of a suc-
cessful termination of Gov. Johnson's
illness , even should he survive i the
With his wife at his bedside and his
physicians in constant attendance Gov.
Johnson was swaying between life and
death Saturday morning. In the last
official statement given out the sur-
geon said :
"I do not think Gov. Johnson will
die tonight. If he" survives Saturday
he will have an even chance for his

Great Northern and Milwaukee Roods
Want Mail Contract.
Rival propositions to carry the mails
from Chicago to Seattle in fifty- ; ix
hours have , been submitted by the
Great Northern Railway company and
by the Chicago , Milwaukee and St.
Paul railroad. Such an accomplish-
ment as is proposed would clip six-
teen hours : off the present schedule
for the 2,200 miles. The threatened
speed war has for its reward the four-
year contract for carrying the overland
mail from Chicago for the Puget sound
country , Alaska and trans-Pacific
ports , and from Chicago to St. Paul
, and Minneapolis.
It means nearly $7,000,000 addition-
al revenue to the successful road dur- ;
ing the four years following next Feb-
ruray , when the contract is due to be
awarded. .

Attempt to Rob a Rio Grande EQrcS9
A daring : attempt by five bandits o
rob the second section ot the Denver
and Rio Grande passenger train wa3
made about' 11 o'clock Thursday night
about four miles west of Malta , a small
station near Leadville , Colo. The ex-
press car was dynamited. According
to the trainmen no booty was secur' d.
It is believed the robbers crawled
on the two engines of the train at
Malta. The train had proceeded but
a short dis ance when two men cra\ -
ed over the tender and compelled the
engineers and firemen to march back
to the express car.
Engineer Smith , of the first engine ,
was told to hammer on the door and
order the express messenger to open
it. The latter refused and a charge of
dynamite was placod under it and the
door blown open. Three of the robbe ;
rushed in , covering the express mes-
senger with revolvers. Several
charges of dynamite were placed un-
der the safe but without result except
to wreck the inner part of the car.
After firing a volley the robbers
fled in the darkness. One of the
trainmen in the meantime had reached
malta and Sheriff Campbell with a
posse at once started in pursuit.
It is said the safe contained a large
sum of money. The train was known
as the Chicago and San Francisco ex #

Omaha School Children Disregard Or-
ders of School Authorities.
You can't keep a kid from eating
pie when he really has the taste and
the pri : e.
The Omaha high school authorities
thought they could by simply laying
down the law so that no pie should be
kept for sale in the school restaurant.
But they now have another large , deep
thought due them.
Pass along Twentieth street , be-
tween Farnam and Harney , and you
are likely to observe a pile of these ;
thin pasteboard pie plates , sometimes
as many as fifty in a pile. At the
corner of Twentieth and Farnam is a
grocer who keeps pies , and at noon it
is only a short walk from the high .
school to this store.
Apparently , instead of shutting pie
off the menu , the school authorities
, have driven the youths to eat nothing
but pie.

Blaze Gains Headway and for Timf
Threatens Town.
The worst fire Hebron has had fo.
many years raged Saturday , and fOI
[ a time it looked as though the entirt
place was doomed , but owing to thE
plentiful supply of water and the ef-
fort of the fire boys the fire was g)1
under control.
The fire started in Myers' : livery sta-
ble and in a short time that building
had burned to the , ground. It soon
spread to the lumber yard of the J.
H. Yost company. The air was thick
with smoke and flying embers and
several residences were on fire. 1\11'
Myers lost all his buildings , together ]
with ten head of horses , buggies and
other truck , the loss being estimated
at upwards of $4,500 , with an insur-
ance of $2,200. The lumber yarel'
loss was about $30,000 , with an insur-
ance of $20,000. J. G. Writh , hardware
merchant , lost 360 kegs of nails uponr
which there was no insurance.

fire to the extent of $10,000 , con
fessed to having robbed the safe an (
then applying the match to the build
ir. g. The police in going over the ruin
discovered the safe unlocked. Th I
. Anderson was sent for on the pretense
that his assistance was needed. Upor
his arrival at the scene he was a1'
rested and accused of arson. He alse
made a full confession , but would not
say how much money he had taken
though he admitted that he had beer
robbing the business for more thaI ;
a year. He said that Saturday he :
secured a quantity of fuse and laid i'
in a manner so that it would requi
several hours for it to do its work. The
he applied the match and locking the :
building took the books and start
home , hiding them in a lumber yard
where they were found later.
Question of Liquor Selling in Linco
Will Be Settled.
The supreme court will meet Sep- ;
tember 21 and at that time it is very
probable the court will pass on tht '
motion of the state oil inspector for a
rehearing in the non-partisan judi-
cialy : , case.
Among the cases of great impo
tance to the city of Lincoln , which
now serves its people with all the liq-
uor they desire through the medium
of clubs , though the town is dry , fig-
uratively speaking , is that in which
the right of a club to sell or serve
booze in a dry town is to be tried out.
When the town first went dry the ;
clubs at once stocked up heavily and
then when there were rumors that the :
police were going to interfere they
promptly got out injunctions to com-
pel > the people to let them'alone. So
the supreme court is to pass upon thG
legality of that injunction.

R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of
Chicago Trade says : "The growth In
banking power reflected by the official
statements this week adds further tes
timony to the improved commercial
position. Loans are seen to have In-
creased considerably over this time
last year and there are developments
In ( progress which foreshadow a
stronger . demand for money in the
near future. The discount rate , con-
sequently , gathers firmness. It is for-
tunate that credit operate smoothly
and make financing easier for the
needs [ of tho industries and transporta-
tion : Interests now entering upon a pe-
riod of greater activity.
"Trading defaults again make : an
encouraging exhibit. Movements of
commodities make a favorable db .
parison with a year ago. Increasing
production is noted in Iron , wood ,
brass and leather manufactures. No
abatement yet appears In heavy con-
tracts for railway equipment , rails ,
structural steel and pig iron.
"Machinery makers report wider re
mand fo rnew outfits , especially for
mining purposes , and the improvement
is ( well sustained in electric lines ,
heavy hardware and furniture.
"Despite poor export requirements
the dealings in grain and flour remain
targe. Mail and road orders are ex
ceptionally good , and aggregate book-
ings make a high total for dry goods ,
footwear and food products.
"Bank clearings for five days , $231-
500,334 , exceed those of the corre-
sponding period last year by 18.3 per
cent , and compare with $242,951,602
for : six days in 1907. .
"Failures reported in the Chicago
district number twenty-one , against
twenty-five last week , and twenty-
three ; in 190 ' . Those with liabilities
over $5,000 number five , against four
last week , six in 1908 and five in
t907. "
Operations in industrial lines an
still expanding , and in some branches
of the iron and steel trade record t. '
puts are the rule. In fact , manufactu
ing is in the forefront as regards ac-
ivity. Jobbing trade is good , and at
some centers , particularly where fall
festivals are held , purchases of dry
goods , groceries and staple lines in
general have really increased.
The earlier gathered crops , such as !
wheat , cotton and oats , are being
aoved to market quite freely , and tha
good ; prices being realized from the
sale of these products will make for
easier collections and growth in trade.

States for the week ending , Sept. 9
