persons on board, lnoluding Mrs. Law

passengers were those who went up on
the limited yesterday afternoon from
this end of the line, and finding that
they eould go no farther tbey stopped
at Pine City and returned to Minneap

lying on the ground injured. Bome of
the people jumped into Skunk lnke, but
I simply ran along the ties. The fire
had burned away, and after running

The site of Hinckley, says Mrs. Law

were fully 125 persons aboard the "lim

Residents of Pukogsma Are In Danger
Mora, Minn., Sept. 2. One hundred

Wilkes-Bakbe, Sept 2 What has
turned out to be a fiendish murder bas
led to the capture of John Tutaka, of
Port Bowkloy. Anthony Berwick, a
reeldent of Midvale, was struck by an

peeted foul play, and notified the au
thorities. A detective was put on the

the arrest of Tutaka.

CAUSE WTHE HAZE.
Scientific Men Declare That We Are
Not Passing Through a '
Washington. Sept. 2. The psonlinr
haze that has been noticeable in the
sky all over the country for the last
week or so has been a matter of great
interest to meteoroligists, and many
experiments have been going on In
different observatories of the country
to determine its esoee and nature.
Tbe weatber bureau officials, whose re
ports on the weather conditions arc
daily read throughout the United
States, bave been making observations
of tbis phenomenon, and the opinions
of two of tbe professors of meteorology
were given today to a reporter for the
Prof. Henry A. Bia eald: "This is
what is called the Indian summer dry
hnze. Just what is tbe cause of it, it
is a little difficult to determine, al-
thou ;h similur conditions have boon
notioed in the past.
"It is probably caused every year by
a settlement of dust or smoke particles.
Tbe air is generally quiet, and there
are ne conditions which would precipi
tate the particles causing the baza or
carry them to other regions. Tne con
ditions east of the Mississippi river are
unquestionably due to forest fires just
as io 17S1 and 1881.
"The theory advanced that tbe pres
ent haze is caused by tbe earth passing
torongn tne tail or a comet is entirely
erroneous. The material in tbe tail of
a comet could not possiby produce suoh
an effect as tbat. Tbis is a condition
purely terrestrial. The stirs can be
seen through the densest tail of a
Professor Cleveland Abbe, of the
weather bureau, who has mado a spec
ial rusearch into this smoke said:
There is eveiy reason to believe that
all ot tbe emoke baze which now covers
tbe country is the result ot tbe diffus
ion of the smoke of burning forests and
erops. A comparatively little fire will
make a large quantity of douse smoke,
unless it is widely diffused by strong
winds, in which case the smoke becomes
like the thin baze of the Indian sum
mer. It will doubtless all be cleared
away by the aotion ot the first gonerul
storm that sweeps over the country.
SAMOA HEARD FROM.
Big Powers of Europe Liable to En

nex the islands is all the more signtfi
oant in view of the present nttltuJe of
the United States concerning Saraoan
aff.iirs. Samoa nud this country have
practically parted company. No Un
ited Sutes warship is kept at
Apia and probably none will be
sent there during this administration
except for the promotion of the lives
and property of Americans in the
event of hostilities. That the United
States government has abandoned its
share in ths triplicate protectorate
over the Sarnoan ialnndB is now ao
eepted ns n fact in diplomatic eircles.
and 'the opportunilies such a course
opens for the othor parties to the
agreement are emphasized by tbe peti
tion to Emperor Williuui.
In bis last annual message to con
gress President Cleveland showed
clearly what would be the attitule of
this government, in onr relation with
Simoa. as outlined by Secretary Greg-
bum. In effect tbe policy adopted is
tbat it Is unwise tor tbe United States
to msddlo In the efflrs of Samoa be-
oause tbe islands are too far away to
do us any good and tbat a continuation
of tbe protectorate is a constant me-
nanoe to American peace. It will be
interesting to note however, what tbe
attitude of the United States will be if
Germany acts favorably on the the
petition presented to its emperor and
attempts to annex sarnoan territory.
But whatever the polloy of tbis Gov
ernment should suoh an attempt be
made, it is certain that Great Britain
will not submit tamely to surrender
of its rights In the protectorate, and it
is therefore likely that Samoa may soon
again be a center of interest for the

He opened tbe services by asking his
hearers to sing heartily tbe well known
hymu, "All Hail the Power of Jesus'
Name." In rendering tbe refrain the
audience did not please Mr. Moody,
who desired to instil more enthusiasm
into the singing, and in compliance
with liia request the refrain was re
peated and bis electrical power of en
thusing his audience had the result of
a more hoarty rendition.
Thus early Mr. Moody demonstrated
the sway ne so mysteriously holds over
thousands. Rev. Dr. Robinson then
engaged in prayer, after which Mr.
Stebbins, the versatile composer of
gospel hymns, santf, "I Shall Be Satis

In one case the clergyman of a Lon
don church requested him to preach to
bis congregation and he complied, but
in tbe morning service be found tt
service cold and formal and it seemed
to him that he could not get bold of the
people. The ohnrsh seemed like an ice
bouse or refrigerator, but iu the even
ing there was a great change as if the
breath of God was in His bouse. What
was the secret? A member of the
church who bad been ill for many
years bad read of tbe Moody services
in an American paper and prayed tbat
God would send Mr. Moody to her
church. After the morning service
some of her friends said, "Who do you
think preached in our church this
morning?" Tbe Invalid gueesed several
times uutil she found that her prayer
had been answered, and tbat Mr.
Moody bad been in the chnreh and
would preach nguiu in the evening.
How earnestly she then prayed for
God's bleeBiug upon his services, bow
she entreated for tue Father's grace to
shine in tho service, and so the prayer
was answered and a obange wrought
aud many souls brouurut to God. Iu
like manner he would ask them to pray
for tbe blessing of God npou tho work
of tbe coming week. They eould all
pray, but let them remember the essen
tial elemeuts of prayer, First, there was
adoration; second, there was confes
sion, and in this Mr. Moody was pow
erful iu his telling sentences. If a bul
let of lead, said he, be in a man's body
he cannot be healthy, because there is
in him a foreign element and so are tbe
nnconfesaed eins a foreign element in
au unhealthy eoul. So many wavers
bad been offored in Tain owing to the
cursed bidden sins whioh bad not been
confessed. A little boy bad tronble
with his mother and was sent to bed
early in tbe evening whore his father
visited him, and after reprimanding
him nBked him if ho had prayed.
"Yes," said the boy, "I have said my
prayers." "But," said tbe father,
"have you prayed." He may have said
his prayerp, but tbe paramount ques
tion was, bad be prayed.

Men wore but big children, they said
their prayers often, but did not pray.
There was somf thing wrong, they had
a lead ot uuconfessed sins which pre
