Court Attaches a Locomotive.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , July C. "My
goodness , why doesn't ' the train go ?
Are we going to stay In Sioux Falls all
day ? " These nro two of the expres
sions , purged of sulphuric tincture ,
that were heard on the southbound
Milwaukee train about noon. Even
when explanations were forthcoming

Engine 771 was hold by the Issu
ance of an execution secured by ex-
Snator A. B. Klttredgc acting for Mrs.
Martin Wcstby , who has a Judgment
against the road for ? G,148.79.
It was the last day the railroad could
appeal the case and as no appeal was
token and the money not in sight the
attorney decided upon drastic action.
The attached engine was due to pull
the 12:15 : train to Chicago via Sioux
City , but that made no difference to
United Stales Deputy Marshal Jerry
Carleton , who served the papers. That
was the particular engine he had tak
en fancy to , anyway.
Placed In Storage.
Railway officials got purple above
their collars , but the man with the law
behind him smiled cheerfully. In or
der to move their train and the United
States malls , It was necessary to get
another engine from Harrlsburg , and
this the officials were nblo to do within
a couple of hours.
About this time the deputy marshal
asked the railroad company to put the
engine in the round liouse for him.
They laughed at him and told him
to do It himself. Later on , however ,
they complied with his request and the
engine is now lodged In the round
house , and Is for sale.
Who wants a good healthy engine ?

Novel Feature of Quoensboro Brldo *
Carnival at New York.
One of the novel features of the
Qucensboro bridge carnival In New
York during the week of Juno 12-19
will be a canine Marathon race. This
Is the first time that this will bo tried
and will bo open to trained dogs only.
The affair will be under the direction
of Phllb G. Andersen , the well known
dog fancier of Union Course , N , . Y.
The race will be from the Manhattan
end of the Queensboro bridge to some
point on the Hoffman boulevard near
Glendale , N. Y. The lists are open to
Odd dogs and hounds. There will be
several contests for trained dogs.
There will be also a race for the booby
prize by dogs not thoroughly trained.
The dogs will have blankets with
numbers so that they can be distin
guished In the race. At first the com
mittee was doubtful about the possi
bility of carrying on such a race , but
several experts on dogs have satisfied
it that the thing can be accomplished.
In speaking of the matter Mr. Ander
sen said :
"Dogs can bo trained to race as well
as horses , and more so , because they
dq not need any Jockeying. Some of
the most exciting coursing events of
this kind have been held right on Long
Island , and nt one time a good dealjpf
money has been put up on the contest
ants. It will be great sports to see
from 100 to 150 dogs go streaking
across the big bridge.
. "Tho races can be made more excit
ing by interspersing them with hurdle
and other obstructions. To see these
dogs leaping fences and ropes would
add to the excitement and novelty of
the affair. This race will Interest the
owners of all thoroughbreds and espe
cially the owners of field dogs.
" 1 have sent notices to about 350
owners , and all of them have signified
their willingness to enter the races. It
will bo a question of selection. Each
race should be limited to about fifty
dogs at the maximum. If there are
moro than that number the dogs are
apt to run In packs , and that , would
spoil the race. Owners of dogs as far
west as Los Angeles have signified
their intention of entering their ani

WANTS BUSINESS UNIVERSITY
Cleveland Educator Makes Plea for
Educating Business Men.
Denver , July 6. "To provide nn In
stitution of university grade for the
raining of leaders of trade and cap-
alns of Industry with expert teach
ers of business culture , ethics , his
tory , applications of the sciences ,
world markets , etc. , is a larger oppor-
.unity for some philanthropist than
: he endowment of libraries or the es
tablishment of chairs In dead lan
guage or the search for mumles and
scarabs that are still more dead , "
said S. R. Hoover , an educator of
Cleveland , O. , speaking before the de
partments of business education at
the National Education association
"For centuries the business man
las helped to educate all the other pro
fessions , and supported them after
ward , " continued Mr. Hoover. "Now
the dignity of his own , the Incom
parably larger number engaged in It ,
and the keenness of the competition
with those of other lands demand a
departure from our archnlc system of
learning business methods , and the es
tablishment of an American univer
sity of commerce to which foreign
lands will soon send their sons to
learn how the Yankee does business.
However small the number who can
take advantage of it , education must
mean the largest possible opportunity.
There still clings around commercial
pursuits a little of the mediaeval pre
judice which provided such oppor
tunity only for those contemplating
the 'professions. ' But the number of
professions Is increasing rapidly.
Technical schools have added several
to the list. The football Held and the
gymnasium have followed the pugilis
tic ring In providing 'professions. ' If
we have the professional football play
er and pugilist , surely the professional
business roan stands far higher in the
scale. For the professional there
must be special training * The
physician , lawyer , minister , teacher ,
engineer and athlete have presented
their claims , and recognition has-been
accorded In special opportunity pro
vided by schools and courses of the
most approved type. But it has been
generally true of the history of educa
tion that as soon as the boy showed
his Inclination toward a commercial
career he was side-tracked with scant
courtesy and only a rudimentary train
ing in the mere 'hatchet-and-saw'
"The greatest problem in education
today Is the industrial training of the
common people so as to enable them
Individually to give more productive

president of the Iowa State normal
school , Cedar Falls , la. , in his address
before the department of rural and
agricultural education , which held a
meeting in connection with the Na
tional Education association. "All
other education can be conducted in
groups , but this must be personal and
Individual. Agriculture must be
taught In a sparsely settled commun

Agriculture Is not one occupation or
branch , but many occupations and

Manila , July C. In a desperate flght
near Pallan on Jolo Island yesterday ,
Jlkirl , the famous Moro outlaw chief ,
was killed and hlo entire band oxter *
mlnated by n detachment of regulars
and constabulary under Captain
George L. Bryatn of the Sixth United
States cavalry , operating In conjunc
tion with a naval flotilla of the mos
quito fleet under Lieutenant Command
er SIgnor. The American loss waa one
private killed and three officers and
twenty enlisted men and one sailor
Private O'Connell of Troop A , Sixth
cavalry , was the one man killed. The
American officers wounded are : Lieu
tenants Kennedy Miller and Arthur II.
Wilson of the Sixth.
Outlaws All Fight to Death.
Captain Byram's cavalry , with n few
scouts and constabulary and n detach
ment of sailors under Lieutenant Com
mander SIgnor , located and attacked
the outlaws in the mountains not far
from the coast. The Mores fled and
took refuge in a largo cave. The col
umn of troops and sailors surrounded
the place , but Jlkirl refused to surren
der. A concerted attack was made ,
the Mores fighting desperately In the
mouth of a cave until the last member
of the band was dead.
Americans Wounded by Explosion ?
As yet few details of the flght have
been received at the headquarters of
the army. The largo number of
wounded among the troops Is account
ed for on the theory that the cave was
mined and the Americans were wound
ed by the explosion.
In his brief report Captain Byfam
warmly commends Lieutenant Miller
for bravery and gallantry In action.
Captain Byram gave no details as to
the condition of the wounded.

Cattle Men Pay $25,000 to Settle With
Sheep Company for Depredations.
Sioux Falls , S. D. , July C. The case
against nine prominent cattle men of
the Sundance district , who were
charged with destroying property be
longing to the Rodney King Sheep
company and the Guthrle Sheep com
pany , after having been pending for
some weeks , hits been dismissed as the
result of an agreement by which the
defendants paid all costs and expenses
In connection with the prosecution and
for the property destroyed , In addition
to agreeing not to further molest sheep
on the Crook county range.
It Is estimated that the little esca
pade of the nine cattle men cost them
the aggregate sum of $25,000 , and un
der the circumstances they doubtless
consider themselves fortunate to have
escaped upon payment of this sum.
Two of the cattle men had mndo con
