camerllngo, demonstrated the folding of a
ballot to those near 'htnv and they In turn
showed others how It must be folded. Each
ballot was sealed, with no distinguishing

more smoothly and quickly.
Each cardinal In turn, holding his ballot I

everyone present could see It, advanced
slowly to the altar, where a large challoe
was standing, knelt and prayed briefly;
then rising repeated the following oath:
God witness, He who shall Judge me, that
I elect him who I think should be elected
according to Clod. This I promise to do
also in the urcesslt vote.
So saying, the cardinal dropped his ballot
In. the chalice, bowed before the altar and
returned to his place.
The balloting took a very long time, as
many of the cardinals, owing to their ad

cardinal scrutineers opened the first ballot
and passed It to a third cardinal, who read
It out In a loud voice and the other cardl

As no cardinal received the prescribed
two-thirds of the voles a supplementary
ballot was taken, with no better result.
Consequently, at 11:20 a. m., all the ballots
were burned, the smoke being seen from the

believing that the outcome of the conclave
will be as follows:
Cardinal Rampolla, having secured the
greatest number of votes, but not sufficient
to elect, will withdraw In favor of Angelo

is his friend and co-worker, and who, It
elected, will name Domenclo Ferrata, pre

The train, which Is an accommodation
running between Stansberry and Council
Bluffs, struck two cows which were on the
track near the Pony Creek crossing, five
miles east of Council Bluffs. This crossing
from the number of accidents which have
cccurred there, is known among railroad
men as "Dead Man's Crossing."
The enelne and seven cars, four of the
cars containing hogs, were piled In a heap.
Two cars loaded with coal and the caboose.
In which were seven passengers, stayed on
the rails. The track was torn up for, a
distance of 200 feet.
Engineer Little Hnrt.
Walter Baldwin, the engineer, was
thrown from the cab Just as the engine
went over, and escaped unhurt except a
few minor bruises. Harry Crowdor, the
fireman, who was standing directly back
of Engineer Baldwin, was pinned against
the boiler by a rod, which pierced his neck.
He was evidently scalded to death. The
body of Brakeman Moore and the third
tramp known to have been stealing a ride
had not been recovered from the wreck at
11 o'clock last. night.
The three tramps boarded the train at
Silver City. Devlin was badly crushed

22 years of age and waa evidently a la
borer. The train was in charge of Conductor
David Meyer, a traveling man from Day
ton, O., waa one of the seven passengers
In the caboose, among the number being
one woman and a little boy. All of the
passengers were shaken up, but otherwise
uninjured. Mr. Meyer said the train was
running about forty-five or fifty miles an
hour when the accident occurred. That the
caboose was not piled up with the other
cars -he attributed to the fact that Imme
diately ahead of it were two cars loaded
with coal, the weight of which kept them
from going over with the rest.
Passenger train No. 14 went ut over the
Burlington tracks. The wrecker from Stans
berry Is at work and It Is expected the

It began by the loss of a small diamond

that she should name what she would like

to associate her visit In New York with a
loss, even ao small. She said a single dia

stones is has not been told.

PEKING. Aug. 1.-A Journalist of this
city named Ehen Chien was executed here
yesterday. According to the official re
port, he was beheaded, but this report Is
false, as , the condemned man wns really
beaten to death.
The execution occurred In the courtyard
or the Yamen or the board or punisnmeni.
The victim waa beaten with bamboo rods
for two hours, the flesh on Ms back, arms
and legs being torn to ribbons. After life
had apparently beeomo extinct the execu
tioners, fearing that Chien had merely
fainted and might revive, twisted a rope
tightly round his neck and left the body
in this condition until this morning.
No one except officials was permitted to
see them prisoner after his arrest, bis
friends being denied an Interview with him
and all Information regarding his condi
tion being withheld. The evidence at the
trial was so wenk that Chien would proba
bly have been acquitted had he not boldly
proclaimed his opinions snd expressed his
willingness to die for them. He frankly
admitted attempting to organise a rebel
lion at Hankow In 1900 and boasted that he
had always advocated the assassination of
the Manchus In order to lid the country
of the dynasty.
Despite the precautions taken by the
officials, the prisoner smuggled from his
cell a farewell message In the form of a
poem. In which he glorified reform and ex
horted hla colleagues to continue the work.
Chien was 30 years of age and had many
friends among the foreign residents of the
city, who describe hira as an educated,
high-minded gentleman. The affair has
created intense feeling In the foreign com

Minnesota Law Not Violated.
That my Judgment after most careful
consideration of the facts and law applic
able thereto, as construed by the highest
court, leads me to the conclusion that none
of the defendants has violated the Minne
sota anti-trust act. a conclusion apparently
contrary to that reached by the eminent
judges who, In this court, recently decided
mo cases or me united states against the
Northern Securities company, and who will
doubtless in another court review this
cause upon appeal and has necessarily
caused hesitation and careful examination.
But the rights of litigants and my own
sense or duty alike require that my own
deliberate Judgment, guided by my under
standing or authoritative expositions of the
law, be given In all causes tried before me.
To epitomize this decision: It Is held that
It would be for the Interost of the Northern
Securities company to restrain trade by
suppressing competition between these two
railroad companies; that by coercing or
persuading the two boards of directors,
whom It has the power to elect. It will cer
tainly cause them to commit highly penal
offenses by entering into combination con
tracts and arrangements In restraint of
trade, In violation of the anti-trust act, and
hence the Northern Securities company Is
already guilty of these offenses that have
never been committed or thought of by
Its officers or promoters, so far as appears,
and it must be suppressed and destroyed.
I am ct npelled to reject the doctrlno that
any person can be held to have committed,
or to be purposing and about to commit, a
highly pennl offense merely because It can
be shown that his pecuniary interests wilt
be thereby advanced and that he h'is the
power, cither directly by himsrir or In
directly through persuasion or coercion of
his agents, to compass the commission of
the offense. Decreo will be entered dis
missing tne bill.
