Riddle Ohio Farmer's 
House With Bullets. 

Robbed It After Scaring 
Occupants Away. 

Little Mountain. Ohio, April 5.— A 
large posse of farmers, armed with shot- 
guns and accompanied by dogs, is today 
searching the surrounding country for 
three men who late last night riddled the 
house of John Lemon with bullets. 
While the Lemon family were entertain- 
ing a party of neighbors, three men, 
supposed to be members of the gang 
that robbed the Chardon bank Wednes- 
day night, rapped at the door of the 
Lemon house and asked for food and 

Upon being refused, the strangers 
drew revolvers and began to fire rapidly 

into the house. One bullet rippled 
through Lemon's coat. More shots fol- 
lowed in rapid succession, the bullets 
crashing through the doors and windows, 
breaking pictures and lamps. Lemon 
and his guests were unarmed, and es- 
caped as quickly as possible throug':> 
rear doors to a nearby house. 

At daybreak Lemcn returned, to find 
his household effects overturned and 
scattered and $100, all the money he 
had, missing. Meanwhile the country 
for miles around had been aroused, and 
farmers turned out with their dogs and 
guns. Their search for the gang has 
so far been unsuccessful, however. 



Young Southf ner Who Tried to Shoot 

May Buckley Is Mad. 

The Actress Claims All the Property 

In the Moulton Flat. 


Know Nothing Whatever Concerning the Status of 

the Manchurian Question But Believe 

Russia Will Act Promptly. 

Pekin, April 5.— On one subject the 
members of the Russian legation claim 
to know nothing, and that is the Man- 
churian question. The feeling at the 
other legations Is that Russia is bound 
to do something or lose prestige with 
the Chinese. The members of the British 
legation in particular are satisfied that 
in spits of China's refusal to sign the 
Manchurian agreement, she will soon 
sign something similar in order to pro- 
tect her own interests and have even 
nominal control of Manchuria, which la 
now practically Russian territory. 

The ministers think the island of Ku- 
Lang-Su concession just agreed upon 
extremely valuable, as the island can 
be controlled absolutely as far as sani- 
tary and other mea-sures are concerned. 

and will become largely a residential 
quarter for foreigners. It will be entire- 
ly under International control. 

The ministers and other foreigners 
consider the fortifications of the Ger- 
man legation excessive, and believe it to 
be the reason for the Chinese court not 
returning to Pekin. A deep and wide 
moat has been dug on two sides of the 
legation premises. "Hie barracks on the 
new legation grounds are well under 
way. including those of the American

While Russia Blames Powers For China's Refusal to 

Sign Treaty She Rests Quietly In 

Inpregnable Position. 

New York, April 5.— Robert Hayden 
Moulton. the Southerner who shot two 
theatrical managers while trying to 
shoot May Buckley, an actress, in a 
rathskeller two weeks ago, is in a piti- 
able state in Bellevue hospital. He does 
not realize where he is and does not 
seem to have enough mental power to 
recognize anyone except his mother. 

The furniture which has been taken 
out of the magnificent West Twenty- 
sixth street flat, supposed to have been 
conducted by Robert H. Moulton, is al- 
leged to belong to Miss May Buckley, 
the actress with whom the young Ten- 
nessean was infatuated. This statement 
was made by Herman Fromme, the at- 

This puts, if true, an entirely different 
phase on the relations between Miss 
Buckley and Moulton. The impression 
has prevailed since Moulton tried to 
shoot Miss Buckley and wounded Mr. 
Lefllngwell and Mr. Dingwall, that the 
young man had spent several thousand 

dollars on Miss Buckley. If Mr. Fromme 
can prove that she owns this furniture, 
it would tend to show that the young 
Southerner was not the only spender 
when he kept a flat in a style becoming 
a banker earning $50,000 a year. 

The expensive furniture on whiclj 
Moulton borrowed $400 from two differ- 
ent money-lending concerns has been 
seized by George Kline, city marshal, 
and he Is holding it until the courts de- 
cide who owns it. 

It has been supposed to belong solely 
to Moulton, and the only legal question 
believed to be at issue wa« as to which 
of the money lending concerns had ttie 
first mortgage. 

Miss Buckley, it seems, will endeavor 
to prove that the furniture was pur- 
chased for her by her aunt, who was 
with her when Moulton tried to kill her 
in the Pabst Rathskeller. It was 
brought here from Grand Rapids and 
placed in the flat, so Miss Buckley will 
allege, at the aunt's expense, and the 

actress was to pay oflt the debt In In- 

There is no doubt about the flat hav« 
Ing been decorated by a woman, and 
one of some taste. It had none of the 
ear marks of a man's idea of fitting up a 
house. The question of ownership will 
probably come up before the Tenth mu- 
nicipal court in a few days. 

The Borough Mortgage company, hav- 
ing attached all the furniture. Marshal 
Kline has removed it from the flat and 
is holding It until the court releases it. 
The Equitable Loan company, which 
advanced Moulton money with the fur- 
niture as security, ie fighting against 
the Borough 'Mortgage company, and 
now that Miss Buckley has engaged 
counsel, both of these loan concerns 

may lose their loans. 

Miss Buckley was out of the city 
when Moulton mortgaged the furniture, 
and he told the loan companies it be- 
longed to him. Mr. Fromme ridicules 
the assertion that he owned even one 
rooking chair, or that ne even epent any 
money on Miss Buckley. 

St. Petersburg. April .=;.— As previously 
pointed out in these dispatches, Russi.i 
now blames the powers for China's re- 
fusal to accept the conditions of the 
evacuation of Manchuria, and calmiy 
says she is In no hurry and can await 
events. The unbiased opinion here is 
that Russia occupies an impregnable 

diplomatic position from which nobody 
can dislodge her. However warlike 
Japan may feel. Russia is confident that 
no opportunity will be given her to 
take the offensive without placing her- 
self In the wrong. As far as can be 
seen, threats have not caused 
a ripple of excitement here. 


The State Department Has Received an Important 

Communication From Russia That Creates 

a Most Favorable Impression. 

Washington, April 5.— The United 
States government has received a com- 
munication from the government of 
Russia of unusual importance. It bears 
on conditions in China, and particularly 
those relating to Manchuria. The dicu- 
ment has created a profoundly favor- 
able impression, and at the state depart- 
ment it is looked upon as the most salu- 
tary development that has occurred for 
many months In the Eastern situation. 
Secretary Hay received the communica- 
tion from Count Cassinl last night and 
communicated It to the president. Al- 
though the terms of the Russian com-

Washington, April 5.— The president

that Russia takes occasion to give strong 
assurancces of her disinterested pur- 
poses throughout her dealings with 
China. As to Manchuria it is stated 
that Russia's course never has varied in 
the determination to leave that province 
as an Integral part of China and to re- 
tire the Russian troops as rapidly as 
safety will permit. But, as a mere signal 
evidence of Russia's purposes and as un 
evidence of the emperor's devotion to the 
principle of peace, assurances of a defin- 
ite and satisfactory character are now 
given as to the execution of these pur- 
poses. The belief is held in official quar- 
ters that the assurances of Russia are 
so sweeping as completely to avert the 
threatened crisis In Manonuria.

Against Paying Chinese 
Indemnity By In- 
creasing Tariff. 

Shanghai, April 5.— The China associa- 
tion has cabled to I^ondon a protest 
against the proposaJ to pay the Chinese 
indemnity by an increase of the tariff. 
The association claimff that although such 
an increase is possibly practicable it 
should remain for future settlement as an 
increased tariff is calculated to deprive 
the commercial powers of means of re- 
dress for treaty grievances and is also 
detrimental to the expansion of trade. 
The association considers that the honest 
collection of the present native sources 
of revenue will adequately proyide for 
the payment of the indemnity.

Nov/ Appearing In the "Price o! Peace" at a New York u 



Of New Preservative That 

Excels Anything Here= 

tofore Known. 

Copenhagen March 25.— (Correspoiulenre 
of the Associated Press.)— A Danish but- 
ter maker has discovered a new preserv- 
ative which excels everything in that 
line heretofore known. By means of this 
preparation it is possible to preserve 
butter, meats and all kinds of perishable 
merchandise. Experiments show that but- 
ter, for Instance, can be preser\-ed, melted 
and cooled off again without lo.sing any of 
its freshness. It can also be placed 
among goods that are decomposing or con- 
tain rank odors without being alTected. 
The preparation is not injiirious from a 
sanitary point of view and will, it is {re- 
lieved, create a revolution in the shipping 
of perishable merchandise. 

The close commercial relations belwttr. 
the United States and Denmark constantly 
bring up new interests in different fields, 
and now goods are constantly added to the 
list of imports. Recently the large landed 
proprietors liave commenced to introduce 
American iiuail on their estates. The 
Danish quail is a migratory bird, and 
for that reason the Danes wish to get a 
variety that stay all the year around, 
which the American does. Among those 
having purchased a large number of 
birds are Count Frijts and Baron Reedtz- 
Thrott the former premier of Denmark.

Feldhauser Residence Com- 
pletely Destroyed By Fire. 

St. Paul, April 5.— Fire completely de- 
stroyed the residence of Edv/ard Feld- 
hauser, 2268 Dooley avenue, St. Anthony

Goldstein Will Be Taken 
to Stillwater To- 

FuU Time Will Keep 

Him In Until 


Can Save About Seven 

Years If He 


Joseph Goldstein will leave the shel- 
ter of the county jail tomorrow morn- 
ing, after a residence there for several 
months that has been full of incident, 
and will during the day enter upon a 
residence of thirty-two years at Still- 
water, where he will be an inmate of 
the state penitentiary. Goldstein is 
now 26 years of age; when he gets out, 
if he serves his full term, he will be 58. 
It is now 1901, and when his term ex- 
pires it will be 1933, and in that time an 
unlimited number of events may hap- 
jien. Even if the trusts gets so power- 
ful that all the world will be living on 
their charity, he will not have to worry, 
because everything will be provided for 
him at state expense. He will not have 
to scheme to make a living by the use of 
his ready revolver and nimble fingers, 
trained to the trade of a pickpocket, but 
he will be trained to hard and steady 
work, day in and day out, with no 
chani'e to converse with others except 
at stated intervals. He will first serve 
a sentence of five years for attempting 
to commit giand larceny in the first de- 
gree. When that crime is atoned for, he 
will serve ten years for making an as- 
s.iult upon Deputy Sheriff Frank L. 
Magie; when that is done he will serve 
another ten years for making a similar 
assault upon Deputy Sheriff H. N. Ran- 
dall, and when that secoad ten years is 
over he will begin to serve his last sen- 
tence, one of seven years for e.~caping 
from the lawful custody of an ofl[icer. 

If Goldstein l)ehaves himself he can 
cut down the total of thirty-two years 
considerably, good behavior counting 
considera'oly to reduce the sentence. It 
has been estimated that if his conduct 
is clear all through he can get about 
.seven years off for good behavior. 

Deputy Sheriff Bates left thie after-

A Rather Peculiar One Is 

The Mrsaba Central Land and Explora- 
tion company has given O. D. Kinney an 
option for a lease on the oVi of the nwVi 
of section 14-BS-19, good until July 1. The 
proposed lease iirovides for a royalty of 
IS cents ami a minimum output of 40,000 
tons i>er annum. 

This option, and another mining trans- 
action were filetl yesterday afternoon in 
the offlco of ihe register of deeds. The 
other is rather a nt'cuMar deal partaking 
of the nature of a deed as well as of a 
lease. The Munro Iron company, the 
C. M. Hill Lumber company, O. D. Kin- 
ney, J. T. Hale, E. C. Gridley, J. H. Up- 
ham and B. T. Hale sell the swVi of tho 
nw'i of section 2-.'>S-lG to the Biwablk 
Mining company. The deed states that 
the parties of [lie first part Ijelieve there 
is im.(m tons of ore on the proiierty, and 
mavl)e more. The price paid is $l.;i,0«K), ant' 
tha"t is understood to pay for heat amount 
of ore. If it turns out that there Is more, 
ihev are to be paid 2." cents a ton for it, 
and" the Biwabik company is to get out a 
minimum of 30,000 tons a year. The Bi- 
wabik Minine: company is operating a mine 
north of the property.

J. B. Richards Asks the 
County For Five Thou- 
sand Dollars. 

Intimates That He Will 

Settle For a Smaller 


Petitions For More Com* 

missioixers Not 

Yet In. 

The appHcatlon of former City Attor- 
Tcy J. B. Richards for compensation for 
tils .services in collecting delinquent 
personal property taxes of the Duluth 
Gae and Water company, amounting to 
IW.'XjO for the years 1^94. 189.',. 1896 and 
3897 will come before the board of county 
commissioners at lli> meetins this after- 

noon once more, and it is probable that 
this tirne the board will allow something 
for his work, thoueh not the full amount 
of his claim. It will be remembered 
that when the tax matter was up County 
Attorney Phelps did not believe it pos- 
sible to recover on the county's claim 
f )r taxes, so Mr. Richards took the mat- 
ter up, confident that tiie full amount 
could be secured, and won out in the 
courts. At that time an application was 
made for remuneration for his work, but 
Mr. Phelps disapproved of the claim, 
holding that Mr. Richards was only do- 
ing his duty as city attorney in looking 
after t^le city's interests 

In his application Mr. Richards states 
that this money would not have been 
recovered if it had not been for hia 
efforts, and that as a direct result ot 
this litigation over $20,000 additional has 
come into the county treasury since- 
then. It also established a legal pre- 
cedent meaning many th^tisands of dol- 
lars to the county in the' future. He 
states that if the commis^sioncrs consider 
$600'i too much, he is willing to make any 
reasonable concession to avoid dispute 
and litigation. 

Some of the commissi tners at least 
favor granting Mr. Richards compensa- 
tion, though none of those talked with 
this morning had made up their mind to 
any definite amount. Some suggested 
a.s 1 nv as S'jOOO, while others =poke of as 
high as 13000, or half the amount of tf'.e

Mothers from far and near know that TAe Silbef stein & Bondy Co. is the one store which 

gives adequate attention to ready-made dresses and wraps for children— big and little. Children's tailoring is hard to have done. 
Taitors say they can make a woman's dress as quickly as a child's dress — and they'd rather work on women's garments. The 
statement isn't true, though storekeepers have been fooled on it for years. That's why Children's clothes have cost so much that 
in self-defense you've made them at home — bought your dresses ready-made; had to make the children's. Foolish predicament — 
you are out of it now. And the Children's Dress and Wrap business of Duluth has centered here — two-thirds of it surely. This 
is so of garments for little girls of 4, 6 and 8. and 10, 12 and 14. It is quite as true regarding outfits for the big girls and young 
women. Tomorrow an exhibit of New Suits for these bigger girls — ages 14 to 18. (We only print news of the finer ones— there's 
always more to see than we can tell of) — and for smaller girls, 10 to 14 — at $10, ^I2, $15 and ^16.50 — ^tan, navy, brown and red.

The past week brought us the greatest mlHi- 
nery selling the store ever knew, but we were 
sure it was coming. Our force 
of designers and milliners have 
been workin with just this in 
view, and more have been 
working to be readyfor tomor- 
row, the biggest day of all. Tomorrow's display 

will be the milli- 
nery event of the 
entire week. 

Yes, we are ready 
for the rush — splen- 
didly ready. Sorry 
if you think we've 
kept the best for the 
last; may be we 
have — but it's fine 
at any rate — the 
smartest hats in 
town, by long odds 
— if we judge by 
what customers tell 
us (who have looked around) — and best of all 
moderately priced — $5, $6 and ^8 for beautiful 
hats — ^10, %\2 and $15 for high class French 
creations — $15, $18, $20, $22 and $25 — for the 
richest millinery effects in pattern hats or de- 
signed by Madam Bird. 

Qirls' and Children's nUllnery. 

We have said that we are doing girls' mil- 
linery in an original way. When we come to look 
into it that seems to mean that instead of using 
chiffon by the yard, and yards and yards of rib- 
bon, and loading the hat down with unbecoming 
trimmings, we are choosing very light and effec- 
tive shapes, some without any stiffening at all, 
some made of mohair and Tuscan braids, and put- 
ting as little trimming on as possible, but putting 
it where it counts — 50c to $5.

Claim to Have Made 

No Raise In 



Beef Cheaper Than at 

Any Time Since 


Packing Agent Terms It 

"Butchers' Higher Price 


The raise in the price of meats, which 
the butchers' combine seems to liave put 
in effect, or to be about to do so, has 
teen laid to the packers. The bu'.chcrs 
claim to be merely following a rai^e 
made by the packing houses, anl rep- 
resent that they can do nothing else, 
and that the raise means no mort- profit 
to them, but really a loss. In- they will 
not raise prices all around, and hence 
will lose where they do not. The 
butchers, however, do not seem to have 
induced the packers to bear the onus of 
the advance. 

The Duluth agents of the packmg 
houses say that they have not been re- 
sponsible for any increases there may 
liave been in the price of meaft: i-, the 
consumer. They say that if there have 
been any material raises, or if there are 
going to 1)6 any, it is the butchers them- 
selves that are at fault. It is, therefore, 
up to the butchers to explain why it U 
that advances in prices are threafened: 
or have actually been made. 

"The only increase there has been is 
in hogs." said a packing agent yester- 
day afternoon, "and that is due to legit- 
imate conditions. Receipts are light 
and stocks are low, and as they are not 
equal to the demand the price has beer. 
stiff, and that will happen every time on 
any commodity under the same circum- 
stances. Pork loins, however, are off \ 
cent this week, as The Herald's marUet 
report shows, the price having oe^n re- 
duced from 10^2 cents to 'iVt cents. That 
would hardly seem consistent with tiie 
outcry against the packers. 

"On the other hand, beef has never 
been so cheap as it is at present since 
1S93, and if there are any raises in the 
price they are entirely unwarranted, 
and it is a tSiing that the butchers will 
have to explain to their patrons. Mut- 
ton, too, is extraordinarily low for this 
season of the year. The Herald's mar- 
ket quotations show it to be 7V4 cents, 
and a year ago it was selling at 10 or 11 
cents per pound. These are our prices, 
mind you. If the butchers are carying 
on a campaign for higher prices, that is 
something between them and the people, 
and we have nothing to do with it." 

The butchers will probably sit back 
now and say, "Well, what are you going' 
to dj about it?" They are all in a com- 
bine and can make what prices they 

It will be noticed that the parking 
agent quoted says that beef is cheaper 
than at any time since 1893. And yet. 
has there ever been a time in Duluth 
wlien the butch ?rs demanded more for 
beef than they do now? And now they 
are going to raise sirloin steak to 18 
cents a pound.

Members Meet. 

The regular annual meeting of the 
Lakeside Presbyterian church wa.s held 
last evening, there being a fair turnout 
of the members. John Coventry waa 
api)ointed chairman, and the meeting

balance on hand of 36 cents. The Y. P. S. 
C. E. also showed a balance on hand.

Sunday school, which was very flatter- 
nig. The Irwin Missionary society re- 
port showed this to Ije the banner year 
for that organization. The contribu- 
tions were almost doubled, the increase 
in membership was large and now num- 
bers thirty-six, and the literature and 
leaflets were greatly added to during 
the rac5t twelve months. Miss Bullen 
gave the report of the Ladies' Aid so- 
ciety. All the reports were received and 
filed. The treasurer's report showed a 
balance on hand, after all expen««es had 
been met, of $142.79. Mr. Wells was 
chosen trustee for three years, to suc- 
ceed himself. FYank Crassweller was

Sensational Experience With 
a Bunch of Bananas. 

Chicago, April 5.— Peter Wagner, a 
clerk employed by F. Wevoak. 6816 
Wentworth avenue. tSirust his band into 
a bunch of ripe bananas yesterday and 
started with fright when his fingers 
encountered a soft, warm, hairy body. 
Wagner decided to discover the thing 
that was in the bunch of fruit, and, to 
his horror, pulled out a live tarantula. 
He quickly dropped the in.sect, whose 
poison is deadly, but with the aid of a 
pair of thick gloves he managed to make 
it a prisoner in a bottle. 

"I suppose the tarantula was numbed 
with cold, or he would have bitten me," 
said Wagner. "When the weather is 
cold the insects are usually torpid, but 
in hot weattier they never fail to attack 
a percm. They build their nests along 
the stalk of a banana bunch and there 
raise their young.

Army Giant Astonishes Cap- 
' tain of the Philadelphia. 

New York. April 5.— The tallest pas- 
senger that ever sailed on the Rod liner 
Philadelphia arrived from San Juan, 
Porto Rica. Capt, John S. Battle, U. S. 
A., until recently a lieutenant in the 
Eleventh infantry. 

"Never sailed with such another," said 
Capt. Chambers of the Philadelphia. "He 
was the tallest man I ever clapped eyes 
on. He was too long for the space be- 
tween decks." He continued: 

"Capt. Battle is more than seven feet 
tall. He had to procure special permis- 
sion from the war department when he 
received his appointment to the military 
academy. He was bigger than the regu- 
lation size. Didn't know what to do 
about a bunk for the captain. Thought 
at first he was a lighthouse. He came 
aboard at San Juan and asked me if 1 
had a berth Inog enough. Told him that 
I once had a man almost as long as he. 
and that two berths had been thrown 
into one, making a continuous bed about 
eight feet long. Capt. Battle went b<? 
low with me and looked at the double 
berth. Said he preferred to sleep on 
deck. So he had to take an ordinary 
berth, 'bout three feet too short. Five 
nights the captain had to sleep with his 
legs hanging over the foot of the berth 
and curled 'round the stanchion." 

New York. April 5.— A dispatch to 
the Herald from Paris says: An inter- 
view with Mr. Kruger appears in the 
Matin. The former persident of the 
Transvaal was seen in a modest little 
inn at Utrecht, where he is stopping 
for the moment. His eyes have been 
very muh improved by recent oper- 
ations and he can now dispense with 

Mr. Kruger began by announcing that 
on Saturday next he proposed retiring 
into the country for complete rest. The 
little village of Hilbersum, not far from 
Utrecht, has been selected for his 
abode. Nothing has yet been decided 
regarding his trip to America. He will 
undertake the joumey if his strength 
permits and if there is any hope of 
gaining advantage for the Boer cause. 
Mr. Kruger expressed his entire readi- 
ness to submit all questions to the ar- 
bitrament of an impartial tribunal, not 
even excepting the question of inde- 
pendence. "We would sacrifice our 
liberty," he said, "if the verdict of ar- 
bitration decided that one or the other 
of the republics had done anything to 
forfeit it. But on that point we are 
at ease. The South African war has 
been, on the part of the English, a 
perpetual defiance of the Geneva con- 
vention. To a much greater extent 
than their refusal t accept any inter- 
vention is their defiance of The Hague 

Referring to Gen. DeWefs raid into 
Cape Colony, Mr. Kruger denied that it 
was ever hoped to provoke a general 

"We know perfectly well that this 
would be impossible." he said, "because 
of the lack of munitions and arms, as 
well as the difficulty of combined ac- 
tion over such enormous distances. But 
the invasion demonstrated that the 
Afrikanders were everywhere favorable 
to our cause and ready to afford any 
help in their power. .President Steyn 
and Gen. DeWet had. however, a differ- 
ent object in view, and they attained it. 
They were able to obtain plentiful sup- 
plies of food and horses. Moreover, 
these brave allies operated a diversion, 
which allowed Gen. Botha to escape 
from a tight position in the east of the 
Transvaal. They compelled the Eng- 
lish to spreaclBheir forces over the enor- 
mous distances and to recognize the 
fact that the Boers were masters in the 

■ ihese results are surely not to be 
despised. The English cannot be mas- 
ters of the two republics. They are not 
even undisturbed at the Cape and in 

Mr. Kruger next dealt with the ques- 
tion of the mines, where work is now 
said to have Ijeen resumed. He declared 
that so long as he was master in Pre- 
toria the mines were safeguarded and 
work was continued. 

"It is only since the British occupa- 
tion that proptry has deteriorated and 
that all work has ceased. Everybody 
should know that as long as we could 
we remained faithful guardians of this 
international trust, carrying our 
scruples so war even as to respect 
the mines, which are the cause of all 
our misfortunes." 

In conclusion, Mr. Kruger declared 
that, far from being exhausted the Boer 
commandoes were able to go on fight- 
ing indefinitely. "We have combat- 
ants, arms and ammunition in sufiHcient 
quanttities. It is useless to hope to re- 
duce us by la.ssitudc or extermination.'' 



Will Present Serious Supply 
Problems to British. 

New York. April 5.— A dispatcli to the 
Tribune from I,ondon says: The reopen- 
ing of the Rand mines will present seri- 
ous supply problems to the military su- 
thorlties. De Wet appesirs still to be at 
Verde, r.otwithstaoding the storiHS of his

are Ijeing takon to prevent Botha reach- 
ing him or conferring with him.

Count Von Waldersee Has 

Continual Trouble 

With Troops. 

New York, April 5.— A dispatch to the 
Tribune from London says: Count Von 
Waldersee seems to be having a very 
unpleasant time of it. if the latest dis- 
patches are to be credited. The field 
marshal has. it is said, sent a very 
urgent telegram to^the German emperor, 
imploring him to hasten negotiations for 
the withdrawal of the allied troops from 
China. On no fewer than seven occa- 
sions Ihas the count had to settle differ- 
ences similar to the Tien Tsin affair, and 
he fears that unless the troops aiv 
quickly withdrawn he will not be able 
to prevent trouble. 

Twilight Trains. 

There are only two Twilight Limited 
trains, one south-bound and one norih- 
bound, over "The North-Western Line" 
between the head of the lakes and the 
Twin Cities of Minnesota, leaving each 
starting point after the business of the 
day Is over, arriving at destination at 
early bedtime. Gentlemen enjoy the 
comfortable, commodious club smoking 
room of the observation cars and the 
6 o'clock superb dinner in the popular 
diner. Ladies have all the luxuries of 
their own home in the large and roomy 
parlor cars, with thelf upholstered re- 
volving ctiairs. Then, again, it saves 
you sleeping car fare by taking this 
train, enabling you to reach a comfort- 
able hotel for a night's refreshing sleep, 
or possibly your own home. The travel- 
ing public appreciate the service and 
the schedule.

Two Women Fire Away 

With Revolvers at 

Twenty Paces. 

Kirk. O. T., April .'..—Mrs. E'.la St-islin 
and Mrs. Daughson. living near this city, 
fought a duel with revolvers at twenty 
pact^ \Vo<inesday and Mrs. Soigiin is now 

In a hospital dangerously, but not neces- 
sarily faially, wounded. Two of her op- 
pontnf.-i shots lodged in her breast, but 
she is able to talk volubly and is anxious 
to re<-over that she may again tight Mrs. 
Daughson. The duel grew out of a long 
tstaniling feud Iietween the women, jeal- 
{ousy b«»ing the original cause. 

Mrs. Daughson lives on a farm Just 
outh of the city and Mrs. Seiglin has 
Ffrequently endeavored to arouse the tem- 
tper of her neiglxbor by various means, the 
imost effeetual being the claim that she 

tMrs. Stiglin) could take Mrs. Daughscus 
lusband away any time she wished. 
f Mrs. Daughson finally av)i)ealed to the 
courts; and yesterda>- forenoon Mrs. Seiglin 
was tinci $',i») for trespassing ujion the 
Daughson proi)ertv and inciting trouble. 
As soon a3 she paid the tine. Mrs. Seiglin 
drove out to the Daughson ho-me, smarting 
under the loss of money and the criticism 
of the trial judge. Riding up to the door 
of the Daughson house she invited her 
rival to come out and fight a duel. Mrs. 
Daughson pn mptly accepte 1 the chal- 
lenge and came out armed with a ravolv- 
er. The women then faced each other 
at flft'i- f.'et and began shooting, the sig- 
nal being given by a dau.uht.r of Mrs. 
Seiglin, who had accompanied her. Kach 
fired three shots without effect. Then 
Mrs. Daughson got the rangi- and tired 
two shoj^ in quick suet ession, both strik- 
ing Mrs. Seiglin in the breast. She fell 
and Mrs. Daughson assisted in carrying 
her ijito the house, where a i.hysician 
dres.-ed h r wounds, after which she was 
conveyed to a hospital. 

Now the husband:-! of the women are 
seeking each other, vowing to kill on 
sight. The partisans of each woman are 
also burnishing up thtir wenpons and 
seeking an to .shoot somebody. 
During th.^ trial yest.rday. the two women 
attf-mpted several times to fly at each 
other and tight it out then and there. 

Mr.s. Seiglin says her revolver refused to 
work after the tirst three shot.s and that 
she will make a better record when nt xt 
she faces Mr.««. Daughson. The latter has 
not yet b«-en arrested.

Actor Crane SufJering But 
Continues to Play. 

New York, April 5.— A report is current 
In Brradway that William H. Crane, now 
starring in "Davi 1 Harum," is sufT-'ring 
from an Incipient cancer on the tip of his 
tongue, and that it is pos-sible the actor 
will not be able to finish his season. The 
cancer was said to be caused from inces- 
sant smoking, similar to the grT>wth that 
cau.a.^d the dt ath of Oen. U. S. Grant and 
Emperor Frederick. 

Mr. <.*, while fettfferlr.g great pain, 
has refu.sed to sto]) playing. Dr. Irwin, 
a friend of the aetor, is traveling about 
the country with him.

Every drop of medicine that .goes 
into a prescription which is filled

it our bu.^iness to see that every- 
thing is pure and of standard 
streuj^th. There is no work 
about it. Pure drugs and intelli-

a prescription filled here so ef- 
fet tive. 

No doctor can obtain tlie desired 
results in the sick room unless his 
pre.scriptions are filled with drugs 
of the highest quality. The sick 
room is the one place above all 
others where quality counts more 
than anything el?e. If you want 
the patient to improve, to re.«ipond 
to the physician's labors, you should 
be particular about the medicine. 
You should have his pre.'icriptlong 
filled with nothing ))ut pure, fresh 
drtigs and chemicals.

Most of the reputable physicians

Water In Logging Streams 

May Be Too 


Condition Was Exactly 

Opposite to This 

Last Year. 

May Delay Opening of 

the Sawmills a 


Some of the lumbermen say that the 
opening of the sawing season in North- 
ern Minnesota, particularly the country 
mills and those away from the lake, 
may be delayed a little this spring on 
acv-ount of high water, a condition of 
affairs exactly opposite to those of a 
year ago. During March there were 
some pretty heavy snow istorms, and 
the warm weather is taking the snow 
off very rapidly. The snow has practi- 
cally disappeared from the district clo.^e 
around the head of the lake, but back in 
the country a little, and back of the hills 
fringing Duluth. there is still consider- 
able snow. It is claimed that all this 
snow will cause too high water in many 
in-stances for the operators. The saw- 
mill operator of the north, who depends 
on the river driving for his log supply, 
is said to seldom have conditions that 
just suit him. Either there is too littifi 
water, leaving the logs stranded up 
stream, and sometimes so little that the 
roll ways are not broken, or there is so 
much water that the- logs get over the 
bonks or the sorting works cann >t .^e 
operated. Last year it was the former 
condition that hung up a large propor- 
tion of the logs until midsummer. This 
spring the indications all point to plenty 
of water, perhaps too much. All of the 
local lumber manufacturers have been 
preparing the possibilities^ ^t 
low or high water, and this year have 
done a large amount of luiuling !>y rail. 
There are enough logs on hand to start 
every mill sawing and keep them in 
operation for some time. 

Taken on the whole, the logging oper- 
ations of the past winter have been 
carried out under very favorable cir- 
cumstances. Sometimes there have been 
complaint of too much snow ia this 
state, complaint regarding the small 
pox epidemic and other minor difllcul- 
ties, but the treason has been exv.'eption- 
ally free from wage troubles and oper- 
ations suspended or hampered hy men 
quitting. The woodsmen have stuck to 
their jobs pretty well this past season. 
The majority of the operators probably 
consldtir that excellent work lias b-?en 
done at as low a cost as possible consid- 
ering the high wages and the .superla- 
tive independence of the woodsmen 

'It is really difRf'iilt to tell what th?! 
comparison will be l>etween the I'tmber 
production of 1901 and 1900," said a lum- 
berman the other day, "but the prospect 
is fairly good for a supply this sf^a.eon 
equally as large a-«» last year, and may 
exceed it, from the fact that prelimi 
nary conditions aer more favorable, 
a'vl the loggers have take i oat all th'Ht 
they went Into tho woods to get." 

Conditions are said to be not so 
favorable in the southern country, 
where winter logging is not the rule, but 
where in most sections logging gi^s on 
through the year. The winter's outnul 
there is said to have been lighter tlian 

S)me idea of the immensity of the 
lumber industry can be gained from the 
liiennial report of the bureau of labor 
stntistics for the state of Minnesota re- 
garding the log cut for the .season of 181*!) 
and 1900. Tfie report shows that there 
were 389 camps, with 15,8S6 men and 
S2S.T horses employed, and the cut 1,112,- 
000.000 feet of l>gs. The average wages 
of cooks was $.^1.90 per mf)nth; block- 
smiths. $45..j9: teamsters. $.3.">.79; loaders, 
$38.22; sawyers, $30.10; swampers, $27.!tO. 
and common woodsmen, $26.83. The 
average winter earning of the men 
would be about $2,nsK.9J0, to which add 
the cost of feeding the men, $15 each per 
imnth, an! the total cost for cutting 
1.112,000.000 feet of logs at $3.76 per 1000 
P<»et, would be approximately $41,180,- 


Tonight Hoyfs "A Milk White Flag" 
will be at the Lyceum. Hoyt has written 
a score of comedy successes, but "A 
Aiilk White Flag" is Ijy far his most 
pretentious effort, and, perhaps, his 
most successful. Its keen situations 
are side splitting and the dialogue Is ex- 
tremely lieen. A rippling stream of 
comedy runs through the piece, broken 
only by the sharp turn of witty lines, 
and from beginning to end it forms a 
most captivating symphony of merri- 
nn^nt and music. The special feature 
of this engagement is the appearance of 
Mary Mar'olo as the orphan and John 
W. Dunne as the colonel. 


Tomorrow afternoon and evening the 
James-Kidder company will appear at 
the Lyceum presenting "A Midsummer 
Nights Dream.*' The organiation um- 
bers forty-seven players and includes 
a ballet and chorus. The latter will 
render much of the famous Mendels- 
sohn music and special numbers writ- 
ten and interpolated by the eminent 
musician Maxim De Grosz. 

The scenery is exceedinly elaborate, 
"ppresenting two scenes in the palace 
of the duke of Athens, the carpenter 
shop of Peter Quince and the wood 
where the fairies and mortals meet. It 
is described as a scene of wonderful 
beauty and picturesque elaboration. It 
is rich in foliage and (lowers, has the 
atmosphere of mystery and supcm.i- 
turalness. and is. in short, a fit place 
for the confusion of mortals by tlie 
spell of the little fairy population with 
which Shakespeare peoples the scene. 
One of the most wonderful effects, 
which is accomplished by the use of in- 
numerable electric lights and calcium 
brilliants, is a repre.sentation of the 
break of day. From deep night, in 
which the only light is from the flitting 
firebugs and electric flowers, the scene 
grows gradually into dawn and then 
to brilliant day. The close of this act 
witnesses tlie barge of Theseus, a set 
piece in a frame, l>ehtnd which a panor- 
ama n?arlj' 40<) feet in length is passed, 
giving the effect of a voyage of sensous 
l)eauty, accompanied by entrancing 

Monday evening this delightful ro- 
mantic play will be at the Lyceum. In 
presenting "The Prisoner of Zenda" 
this season the management has spared 
neither time, labor nor expense in or- 


Is of Little §pe#f]t Unless It 
Is Digested. 

Nearly everyone jAlt admit that as a 
nation we eat too'^uch meat and tod 
little of vegetablea'and the grains. 

For business men, office men and 
clerks, and in fact everyone engaged in 
sedentary or indoor occupations, grains, 
milk and vegetables are much more 

Only men engaged in severe outdoor 
manual labor can live on a heavy meat 
diet and continue in health. 

As a general rule meat once a day is 
sufficient for all classes of men, women 
and children, and grains, fruit and vege- 
tables should constitute the bulk of food 

But many of the most nutritious foods 
are difficult of digestion, and it is of no 
use to advise brain workers to eat large- 
ly of grains and vegetables when the di- 
gestion is too weak to assimilate them 

It is always best to get the best results 
from cur food that some simple and 
harmless digestive should be taken after 
meals to assist the relaxed digestive 
organs, and several years' experience 
have proven Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets 
to be a very safe, pleasant and effective 
digestive, and a remedy which may be 
taken daily with the best results. 

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets can hardly 
be called a patent medicine, as they da 
not act on the bowels nor any particular 
organ, but only on t'le food eaten. They 
supply what weak stomachs lack, pepsin 
diastase, and by stimulating the gas- 
tric glands, increase the natural secre- 
tion of hydrochloric acid. 

People who make a daily practice of 
taking one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia 
Tablets after each meal are sure to 
have perfect digestion, which means per- 
fect health. 

There is no danger of forming an In- 
jurious habit, as the tablets contain ab- 
solutely nothing but natural digestives; 
cocaine, morphine and similar drugs 
have no place in a stomach medicine, 
and Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are cer- 
tainly the best known and most popular 
of all stomach remedies. 

Ask your druggist for a 50-cent pack- 
age of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and 
after a week's use note the improvement 
in health, appetite and nervous energy. .

stone an<l extreme upper Missouri valleys. 
Ditches are now run all over the old

bfclv.-e«-n April and Auifus:. and irrisation 
is a nec.-ssit.v. It is an ideal stock cfiun-

land in that territory are taken under 
the d« st-rt act.

Mine Fire Throws Several 

Hundred Men Out 

of Work. 

Bessemer— An opening has been effected 
in No. 10 shaft and all the mules in the 
b-irn &)•) feet below, were found alive, bu* 
nearly suffocated as the entire mine is 
tilled with .smoke. In No. 7 shaft com- 
pressore were started to keep out the 
smoke. The shaft is still burning and the 
extent of the loss is unknown but it is 
not expeetcd to spread as the shaft is 
very wet. Still a downward current of 
air may keep the fire burning for several 
weeks. The blaze originated by one of the 
tenders starting a tire in one of the shan- 
ties to keep warm. hTe cage ami other 
machinery dropiied to the bottom. Several 
hundred men will be idle while the shaft 
is being rei'aired. 

Grand Fork.=— Retl river Is rising rapid- 
ly, and is now twenty-four feet above 
low water mark. There must l>e a rise of 
several ft-et yet to do any damage, and 
ihe surface water In this" vicinity is all 
gone. There is a tremendous volume of 
water to come down from the Red Lake 
country, and fl' ods all along Red Lake 
river are expected. 

There is likely to be a controversy be- 
tween Grand Forks and Ksmt Grand 
Forks over the dumping of manure and the 
carea.s.-i'S of dead animals on the bank of 
the Red river, thus contaminating the 
■water supply of Grand Forks.

The President Again Sur» 

renders to Office- 


Drops George Sawter, 

Praised For His Work 

In Germany. 

Clamor of Politicians 

Heeded and Connecticut 

Man Appointed. 

"R. and L.. T." What is if? 

Chicago, April 5.— William E. Curtis 
stnd.s the following from Washington 
to the Record-Herald: The president 
has again surrendered to the office 
seekers, and has removed George Saw- 
ter, consul at Glauchau, Germany, to 
give a place to E. A. Crevy, of Bridge- 
port, Conn., a politician, for whom the 
senators and representatives from his 
state desire to secure an office. There 
are no charges against Mr. Sawter. On 
the contrary, he is described by Consul 
General Mason, of Berlin, as one of the 
best men In the service. The opinion 
of Mr. Mason is endorsed by Maj. Wil- 
liams, the special agent of the treasury 
department at Paris, whose business is 
to prevent frauds upon the customs; 
by Mr. Chance, chief of special agents 
of the treasury department at Wash- 
ington, and finally l)y Secretary Gage 
and A.ssistant Secretary Spaulding of 
the treasury department, who testify 
cordially to his efficiency and fidelity as 
an officer. 

The customs department of the gov- 
ernment is compelled to fight the (Jer- 
man manufacturers who are continu- 
ally attempting to defraud the govern- 
ment by the under valuation of goods 
to this country, and it naturally re- 
quires experience, shrewdness and vigi- 
lance to prevent it. Since 189:1 Mr. 
Sawter has been located at Glauchau, 
the center of the woolen goods indus- 
tries in Germany, and according to the 
testimony of Consul General Mason, 
Special Agent Chance, Special Agent 
Williams and other officers who nave 
been engaged in preventing and detect- 
ing fraud, he has performed his duty 
with great credit to him.self and benefit 
to the government. 

Assistant Secretary Cridler, of the 
state department, who has charge of 
the consular service, and Mr. Chilton, 
chief of the consular bureau, also testify 
in the highest terms to the ability and 
efficiency of Mr. Sawter. One would na- 
turally suppose that such a man would 
be rewarded instead of punished by hl.t? 
government. But Mr. Sawter is a 
Democrat. Nine yeai-s ago he was 
guilty of writing for a Democratic 
newspaper in Connecticut, and was ap- 
pointed to the consular service by a 
Democratic president. For two years 
Senator Piatt and Senator Hawley, of 
Connecticut, two distinguished states- 
men of the highest integrity and purity 
of purpose, men who would resent an 
insinuation that they could be guilty 
of wnmg, have been trying to persuade 
the president to remove Mr. Sawter and 
appoint a friend of theirs in Bridgeport 
to his place. They have been assisttd 
H>- the Republican representatives from 
Connecticut, ))y the governor and lieu- 
tenant governor and the Republican 
committee of the state. If these grrat 
men should go to the president of the 
New Haven railroad, or to the pro- 
prietor of a Connecticut factory and ask 
hirTi to discharge one of his most effi- 
cient ernploj-es and appoint a friend of 
theirs to the place, they would admit 
that they were engaged in a very dis- 
creditable transaction, but they ap- 
proached the president of the United 
States upon the same errand boldly, 
persistently and without the slightest 

The president ha.<! resisted their de- 
mands for two years, but his moral 
courage has finally given out. He has 
called for Mr. Sawter's resignation and 
tias notified Mr. Crevy to appear at the 
department of state for examination. 
Mr. Crevy may be an excellent man, 
but he is entirely without experience 
and has no qualifications for the place 
he is to fill. He cannot speak the lan- 
guage of the country to whlcEi he is 
going; he knows nothing whatever about 
the duties of a consul, nor about the 
methods used by the manufacturers In 
their efforts to defraud the givernment. 
In other words, he is thoroughly incom- 
petent, and under any circumstances It 
will be at least seven years before he 
can reach the same efficiency for which 
Mr. Sawter is commended. President 
McKinley is aware of that fact, and in 
making the removal and appointment, 
considers only the claim of the Connec- 
ticut senators for their share of tlie pat- 

In his message to congress and in his 
Iftters of acceptance he .says nothing 
about his obligations to the Connecticut 
senators, but pledges himself to admin- 
ister his office to the best interests of ttie 

Early In the administration of Presi- 
dent Cleveland, Consul General Mason 
at Frankfort, who is generally consid- 
ered the best man in the service, was 
notified that his resignation was expect- 
ed, and that a Mr. Rapp, of Illinois, 
was to be fiis successor. He was pack- 
ing up his goods when Mark Twain hap- 
pened around that way and visited the 
consulate. Being informed of the situa- 
tion, the latter wrote a letter to Ruth 
Cleveland, the baby daughter of the 
president, telling her that he could not 
interfere in matters of patronage be- 
cause he was a mugwump, but he con- 
sidered it a shame that a man of ex- 
perience and ability like Consul General 
Mason should be turned out of office 
simply because some Democrat who 
knew nothing about its duties wanted 
the place. He said that he was ac- 
quainted with a great many consuls, and 
ttiat Capt. Mason was the best he had 
ever known, and if her father ever con- 
sulted her about the consular servic", 
he suggested, that she advise him not to 
disturb good men merely to give places 
for politicians. 

About a month later Mr. Clemens re- 
ceived a little note in President Cleve- 
land's handwriting, in whicfc Miss Ruth 
Cleveland presented her compliments to 
Mark Twain, thanking him for calling 
attention to the threatened removal of 
Consul Mason, and said that if he knew 
of any similar cases the president would 
be glad to hear from him. Consul Gen- 
eral Mason is still in the service, and has 
since been promoted to Berlin.

Iowa College Orator Pleads 
Guilty to Charge. 

Sioux City, Iowa, April 5.— H. A. 
Keck, who represented Morningside 
college of Sioux City in the recent Iowa 
intercollegiate oratorical contest at 
Mount Pleasant, has pleaded guilty to 
plagiarism in pre^iaring his oration. 
When his speech was delivered repre- 
sentalives of the other colleges noted a 
similarity between his production and 
one delivered last year and another the 
year preceding. Investigation fol'.oweJ, 
arid it was found that Keck had stolen 
bodily large portions of each. When 
confronted with the charges he finally 
confessed, and under command of the 
Mornlngside faculty made a public ad- 
mission of his guilt in chapel and 
offered apology for his conduct. This is 
the boldest instance of -^agiarism yet 
recorded in Iowa college circler*. 


A Movement Started By New 
York Citizens. 

New York, April 5. — A revolt has 
started among a number of citizen.s f f 
New York against indiscriminate 
slaughter of birds at the tournaraeui cf 
the Interstate association which is now 
in progress at Interstate Park, Queens, 
L. I., and it is said there is a movement 
to secure legislation prohibiting such 
events. Among the leaders in the move- 
ment is Ralph Waldo Trine, the Boston 
author. The promoters of the move- 
ment take the stand that such toruna- 
ments are not sport. Mr. Trine has al- 
ways been a lover of animeils, and is 

something of a naturalist. 

•'I regret very much," he said, "that 
nothing can be done to prevent the 
present slaughter, but a number of citi- 
zens here are in favor of b'. inging a bill 
before the legislature to make sujI> 
cruelty impossible. I cannot understand 
how people can call the killing, maim- 
ing or torturing of 20,000 pigeons In such 
a deliberate way sport. I am sure every 
true sportsman's blood will revolt 
against such a carnival of slaughter. It 
is a disgrace to a civilized community. 
There will be nece^-sarily such rapid 
shooting that many hundreds of the 
wounded birds will not be retrieved, <^nd 
will die by starvation or slow tortun;. 
Shooting at clay pigeons would serve 
just as well. Such a cold-blooded 
slaughter of God's creatures is un- 
worthy of American people, of a coun- 
try like this, which is known for its hu- 
manitarian impulc=es. 


Invention That May Prove 
a Great Boon. 

St. Paul, April 5. — Users of fuel in the 
West, especially in the farming com- 
munities, are watching with interest the 
experiments of S. Ogden Edison, an 
uncle of Thomas Edison, the inventor, 
in an attempt to find some way of con- 
verting the hay, straw and corn stalks 
into a convenient form for fuel. On the 
prairies, where wood is not to be found 
and coal is a luxury, hay and such light 
fuel have been forced into use. Siie- 
cially designed stoves have worked quite 
successfully. But the Invention cf Edi- 
son will revolutionize the entire fuei 
question of the West. Not long ago he 
conceieved the idea of preparing these 
light substances in blocks of convenient 
size that could be used the same as 
chunks of wood. He has stated to a 

South Dakota friend that plants for the 
manufacture of his straw fuel can be 
erected for about $15,000, which will have 
a capacity for making fifty tons per 

The fuel will be in the shape of round 
sticks, nine to twelve inches In diameter 
and two. four and six feet in length. The 
material will be as hard as wood, and 
will last longer and make a better heat 
than soft coal. One such plant will util- 
ize the straw, hay and corn stalks of a 
community ten miles square. It will use 
weeds as well as straw. The cost of 
making the fuel will be much less than 
the present cost per ton of coal. It is 
stated that the invention is backed by a 
strong company, which proposes to put 
in plants for the manufacture of this 
sort of fuel whenever an opportunity 


With Both the Duelists Failed 
to Kill. 

New York, April 5.— A dispatch to the 
Herald from Nice .says: A duel has taken 
place between Count Tarnowskl and 
Lieut. Col. Tolstoi. 

At first two shots were exchanged, 
and then the combat was continued with 
swords. Count Tarnowskl was wounded 
in the forearm.

Headquarters of Steel Cor- 
poration to Be Located 

New York, April 6.— The Time.«i sarst 
The headquarters of the United States 
Steel corporation are to be situated in 
this city. President C. M. Schwab has 
secured a suit of apartments on the sec- 
ond floor of the Waldorf-Astoria an<l 
proposes to make New York his tem- 
porary home. The understanding Is that 
Mr. Schwab will not retain the preal-* 
dency for an Indefinite time. It is said 
that he needs a rest, as he shows the 
effects of his work in solving many diffi- 
cult problems that have confronted him 
in the details of the orgranizatlon. Just 
when Mr. Schwab will retire from th» 
presidency Is not predicted, but It Is be- 
lieved he win relinquish It within a 
year. President Schwab would not dls-* 
cuss the matter last night.

Of the Special '''''■'* ''^ ^^^ municipal 

. . court "takes exception 

Jliuge jQ f^^^ statement al- 

leged to have been 
made by Senator Baldwin as justifying 
his oppf>sltion to the bill placing the of- 
fice of the municipal judge on a salary 
Instead of a fee basis," and he cites the 
Increased receipts of the court last year 
as proof of greater business. Larger re- 
ceipts ilo not necessarily mean a greater 
amrunt of busine.^s In the municipal 
court. The bill, however, is not to place 
"the ofBce of the municipal judge on a 
salary Instead of a fee basis." The judge 
of that court Is now paid a .salary. The bill 
•would give the special judge a salary of 
$2000 instead of paying him for the time he 
actuaKy serves. The office is not on a fee 
basis now and never has been. When the 
court was created the special judge was 
provided for in order that there would be 
Bome one to preside over the court In the 
absence of the n-gular judge or to assist 
him when there was an extraordinarily 
heavy rush of busines.s. It was understood 
that the special judge -would l>e a prac- 
ticing attorney and would not be called 
on to act as Judge except occaslonaJIy. 
Of late years the tendency has been to 
keep the special judge at the court most 
of the time, even when the regular judee 
Is not overburdened with work. To fix his 
salary at $2*» would simply be adding at 
least !.>>.) or J700 a year to the expense of 
the court. There l.s no good reason why 
this should be done. 

It Is said that

partment. if frauds ippines. 

were made possible by the lack of proper 
Inspection of the .accounts of the armv of- 
ficers in the Philij.pines handling army 
•upplies. It seems that the government's 
Interests at Manilla have not bet^n prop- 
erly protected. Inspector Gen. Brecken- 
ridgf called the attention of the depart- 
ment to tho fact that the force of inspec- 
tors was entirely inadequate to the work 
•broad, but he has been unable to securu 
the nettssary men. There has been a fear 
at the war department for some time that 
the work of insinction w.vs not given 
proper attenUon, but nothing was done 
to remedy the defect. A great laxity is 
charged In the general supervision, and 
there are some eases where absolutely no 
Inspection has been made of the accounts 
Of disbursing oflicers. With two-thirds 
of the army in the Philippines, Gen. 
Brcckenrldge believes that a large pro- 
portion of his corps should be there also 
and has called on Secretary Hoot and 
urged that the force be inereasol at once 
that any further scandal may be avoid- 
ed. Gen Breckenridge has estimated that 
th-i annual loss to the guvemiijeitt grow- 
ings out of reckl'^ss extra\-agance in pro- 
viding for the army Is anywhere from 
f5.'>W,<X)0 to $10,000,000. This Is indicated 
in the increa-sed cost of maintaining each 
soldier. This has gone up from an aver- 
age of $1000 a year to $1100. Gen. Bivcken- 
ridge says that with proper inspection of 
accounts of all dep.irtments, there should 
be an actual reduction in the cost of an 
army during times of war as compar?d 
with the army on a peace footing. Tlie 
Stem that runs up the total is officers' 
paj-. When the army is Increasetl as .1 
r«»olt of war the raaia axpansion is lu 

the enltwted force, the number o* offloers 
remaining approximately the same. Un- 
der economical adlministration 0«n. 
Breckenridge says that an army can be 
maintained at a cost of about $800 or $000 
per man. The estimate usually given for 
cost is $1000. Recently, however, the cost 
has gone away beyond this and is now 
$HOa When this increase is multiplied 
by 100,000, representing the number of 
men in the army, the reason for the grow- 
ing ccst of the military estabiishmewt Is 
found at oncfr Gen. Breckenridge is not 
prepared to say that by the mere assign- 
ment of additional inspectors to duty In 
the Philippines a saving of $6,000,000 ca»i 
be effected, but he believes that it is with- 
in the power of the departmemt to mate- 
rially cut down the total cost of the army 
as at present adn»inistere<l. While it is no 
particular credit to the bones.ty and in- 
tegrity of the officers and soldiers of Iho 
country to feel that they must be w^atched 
the same as a rogue, the proi)er way to 
lorik at the matter is In a purely business 
light, and conduct the army affairs on 
strictly business principles. As a matter 
of fact, a man is much more likely to be 
honest If he knows he has no opportunity 
to steal. 


The gross earnings bill has passed the 
senate, and with the intervention of no 
unforeseen accident will become a law. 
Whether the law is just or unjust to the 
railroad interests of the state need not 
now be discussed. The general opinion 
is that the advance of 1 per cent in the 
rate was amply justified. The decision 
of the supreme court of the United 
State.5, which allowed the railroads hav- 
ing received certain land grants to 
escape taxation, and whl^-h suggested 
that the rate of gross earnings tax 
(might under the original contract be 
raised, was the signal for the actioa just 
taken by the legislature. 

The bill has had a somewhat notori- 
ous career. There was a time when Us 
friends seemed in a hopeless minority. 
The scheme of the railroad intorest-s to 
ury it in the pigeonholes of the tax 
commission office looked so innocent 
that many of the legislators who hon- 
estly favored a raise of rate also favored 
the reference. A timely point of order, 
and a more timely charge 1** bribery — 
whether well based or not The Herald 
cannot say, but it was well timed all 
the -same — brought to the bill the sup- 
port of all the wavering and the mar- 
ketable members. It was a good piece 
of legislative strategy. As to the ethics 
involved, there may be the .same critic- 
Ism pronounced as is applicable to the 
capture of A.guinaldo, but then it won, 
and Mr. Jacobson as well as Mr.Fur.s*- 
ton will be forgiven the means em- 

Now let that same legislature pass 
the Laybourn bill, distribute the gro^s 
earnings tax where it rightfully belon._<3. 
and everybody, except the railroads, 
will be happy, and even the railroads 
will manage to get along somehow. 
They always have and probably will. 


A bill providing for an appeal to th"? 
district court from the decision of the 
board of medical examiners, by any 
physician who deems himself aggrieved 
by the action of the board, has been 
introduced by Senator Potter and re- 
ported favorably from committee. 

This bill should -pass by unanimous 
consent, but there is a po.ssibility that 
it may meet with .some opposition from 
medical men. The law vesting in the 
board of medical examiners the final 
power to determine whether or not a 
physician shall practice his profession 
in the state is going too far in the line 
of investing a lay body vvith judicial 
power over the business of citizens The 
only authority which should pass finally 
on the rights of citizens under the law is 
the Judicial department of the state. 
That is what it is for, and this bill 
which provides for an appeal is in the 
line of common justice. 

There may cases arise where the 
board of medical examiners are incom- 
petent to sit as Judges on the case of a 
brother physician. An appeal to the 
district court will furnish a safeguaid 
for such instances. It is not always 
best to leave the determination of any 
judicial matter to an irregular body of 
men unused to determining the proper 
evidence or the rights of persons. 


Those who had the good fortune to 
read "To Those Sitting in Darkness." by 
Mark Twain, which appeared In the Feb- 
ruary North American Review, or even 
those who were unfortunate enough to 
read the insane attacks made upon the 
humorous Mark by the administration for his criticisms of the adminis- 
tration policy in the Philippines and 
elsewhere, as well as the howl sent up 
by the missionary societies because he 
took occasion to lay bare the acts of the 
missionaries in China, will read with 
zest the apology which Mark Twain 
offers. It is hardly in the line of an 
apology, but comes in response to a de- 
mand for .in apology. 

When Mark Twain launched his thun- 
derbolt against the modern manner of 
civilizating those who sit in darkness 
and of bringing them to Christ, he called 
attention to the method of Dr. Ament 
in demanding of the Chinese villages 
where Boxer outrages had been com- 
mitted not only the actual damages, but 
thirteen timer's more for purposes of 
spreading the gospel. To this specific 
charge he added others of general loot- 
ing among the missionaries. This so 
grieved the foreign missionary board 
that they secured a denial from Dr. 
Ament regarding the excess damages 
collected, the good doctor saying that 
it was only one-third more instead of 
thirteen times more; that the error was 
made in cabling the news. Upon this 
discovery the b^ard made a great fuss, 
as did certain sympathetic newspapers, 
and suggested that Mark seek "the amen 
corner" and formulate a suitable apol- 
ogy for thus attacking the good doctor 
and the missionaries in general. 

Mark replies in the current North 
American Review. Some people evi- 
dently do not know when they are well 
off. Those people whose only habitation 
is constructed wholly of -omman glass 
want to watch out how they hurl hard 
missiles — they may soon have nowhere 

to get In out of the wet. People who en- 
ter a battle should always see first that 
their powder is reasonably dry. Do not 
think that because a man has done one 
thing well he can not do anotfier thing 
well. These remarks are directed to those 
who attacked Mark Twain, thinking him 
nothing but a humorist. They have 
made a mistake. They caught the yellow 
jacket by the business end; that is al- 
ways uiisafe. 

The missionary board has been hoist 
by its own petard. Next time it will' 
know better, but the world may lose 
some Interesting reading. 


The strained relations existing be- 
tween Russia and Japan, and the possi- 
bility of war between the two countries, 
give especial interest to the fighting 
strength that could be utilized in case of 
hostilities. As represented on paper, the 
strength of liussia bjth on land and sea 
is immeasurably greater than that of 
Japan. According to the latest figures 
compiled at the military information di- 
vision of the war department, Russia 
has at her call an army that would out- 
number that of Japan about 15 to 1, 
Russia's army, in times of peace, con- 
sists of 1,112,000 men, divided as follows: 
Regular troops, 1,046,000; Cossacks and 
irregular troops, 66,000. The war 
strength of the Russian army is mucCi 
greater, consisting of 3,020,000 regulars 
and 190,000 Cossacks, or a total of 3,210,- 
000. In addition to this tremendous 
total, there is a territorial reserve, which 
In times of peace embraces 500,000 men, 
and which can be expanded to 2,5<JO,000. 
Against this big array Japan makes a 
comparatively poor showing. 

The Japanese army, according to tJhe 
latest report of its organization, con- 
sisted of 6500 officers, 13,000 non-commis- 
sioned officers and 150,000 men. This Is 
classified as follows: Battalions of in- 
fantry, 156; 39 squadrons i.f cavalry, 78 
batteries of artillery. 13 battalions of 
pioneer troops and 13 train battalions. 
However, in a war between Russia and 
Japan the mere strength of force would 
not be the sole determining factor. 
Japan is greatly superior to her rival in 
print of efficiency, personnel and equip- 
ment. American army officers who were 
with the Chinese relief expedition speak 
in the highest terms of the Japanese 
troops, while some rough criticisms were 
made on the czar's troops on the march 
to Pekin. An officer who was present on 
that occasion expresses his ideas on the 
merits of the two to the Brooklyn Eagle 
as follows: 

"Everyone was charmed at the man- 
ner in which the Japs showed up during 
the march to the Chinese capital. Their 
whole conduct, through all the weary 
days of fighting and marching, reminded 
one of a nervous, wiry, energetic, brave 
little fox terrier. The Japs gave the 
Chinese no peace whatever. They fought 
with the bravest in the advance all day, 
and the following morning they would 
be the first to be up and on the march 
again. They, were always after the en- 
emy, always up and doing. 

"The Japs presented a striking con- 
trast to the Itussians. The former were 
little fellows, averaging about five feet 
in height and averaging not more than 
115 pounds each. Their leg development 
was remarkable, and altogether they 
were finely mu.scled. The Russian troops 
were a magnificent looking set of men, 
tall and heavy, outweighing the Japs 50 
per cent per man. They were dull and 
heavy, however, and in appearance 
lacked keenness and even intelligence. 
The Cossacks were particularly mean- 
looking, all wearing fierce, straggly 
beards. The discipline among the Japs 
was about perfect, and they were prob- 
ably the most consistent observers of 
regulations of all the troops in tho 
column. It was in this respect that 
especially outshone the Russians, who 
gave many illustrations of laxity of 
discipline among them and also of a low 
moral .sentiment. The Japs were great 
favorites with the Americans and Euro- 
peans, It is my opinion that in a war 
between the two countries the Japanese 
would be victorious in the early cam- 
paign. They would be on the ground 
first, and their quickness, energy and 
activity would give them great ad- 
vantages over the Russians. The latter, 
however, would surely overpower their 
smaller enemy and push them back by 
sheer weight and numbers. I do not 
think that Russia could make any head- 
way against Japan in the latter's coun- 
try, but she would drive the Japs out of 
Asia. Of course, should some European 
power step in and aid Japan with either 
money or an army, the result would be 

that the enterprbys baj^me: unprofitable. 
This must be quite nlcdfor the relatives, 
but rather dlscouraglng|io the manager, if 
he is also a proprietor. But the Chinese 
vrill get some n^gr business ideas before 
thsy get through with their Involuntary 
contact with Western peoples. 

The fruit gfowers and curers of Cali- 
fornia have for years spent large sums of 
money In distributing circulars and post- 
ers and in sending decorated cars of fruit 
over the railway lines. Evidently the re- 
sults of these methods of advertising have 
not l>een wholly satisfactory, since a meet- 
ing of the California Cured Fruit associa- 
tion at San Jose, on Feb. 21, resolved to 
authorize a committee to advertise the 
fruit exclusively in the leading news- 
papers of the country. 

The death of Rev. John Jasper after half 
a century in church work, removes a 
queer character from this world. His ser- 
mon on the "Sun Do M )ve" made h'm fam. 
ous, and gave him a reputation which fol- 
lowed him through life. Dr. Jasper would 
have been 90 years old on July 4. He was 
born a slave in Virginia and was the 
youngest of twenty-four chlldren. 

In the past ten years George Washing- 
ton Anderson, of West Virginia, married 
sixteen women for their money, and yet 
marriage as a business investment seems 
to have been a failure with him. for he 
has just been sent to a poorhouse. 

The dispatches state that a farmer at 
Kellervllle, 111., dropped dead Tuesday 
after depositing his ballot. The cause 
given is that he had been drinking lemon 
extract. Evidently he was not a Buffalo. 

The promoters of the Pan-American ex- 
position are very anxious to have Aguin- 
aldo as an attraction for their coming ex- 
hibition. He would Certainly be a star at- 
traction, but Buffalo will not get him. 

State taxes ought 10 be very light in

In a year or two the most extensive work 
ever attempted by the government will 
be finished. It is the compiling, editing 
and publishing of the official records of the 
civil war and it has proved a most tre- 
mendous task. Government experts have 
estimated that there are 2,'M,000 official re- 
ports, onlers, returns, letters and tele- 
graphic dispatches in the volumes, which 
number 130. The 130 books will average 
1000 octavo pages each of .salid long primer 
type, or an aggregate of 130,000 pages. The 
compilation of the records was begun thir- 
ty-six years ago, and for the past ten 
years a corps of Indexers has been en- 
gaged in indexing the volumes. The first 
volume was published In 1880. The general 
plan of the work was laid out by Lieut. 
Col. Robert N. Scott, but he died before 
the first volume w;ts is.sued. His arrange- 
ment has been followed very closely by 
subsequent officials having the work in 
charge. By law an edition of 11.000 copies 
of each .separate book wa.« printed, or mor.^ 
than 1.300,000 books in the aggre.s;ate. 
These were distributed to the public 
through senators and representalves who 
were in congress at the time the first vol- 
umes were issued. A few sets have gone 
to public libraries, but none now remain 
for distribution. There have been many 
attempts to have congress order a reprint 
of the entire set, but the cost has been 
considered too great.

Veto Power In Action. 

Indianapolis Journal: Governor Odell, of 
New York is niakina free use of the veto 
power, having 'klUdil five bills In one

salary of a stenographer in a New York 
cltv court he said: "It Is noticeable that 
the invariable rule for the equalization of 
salaries in the Greater New York is to 
raise the lower salary to the level of the 
higher, and never to reduce them. This 
tendency is onfe^ that does not commend 
itself to the executive." The same ten-

Threatened Strike Averted. 

Chicago Chronicle: Profound relief will 
be felt over the arbitration of the threat- 
ened strike of the anthracite coal miners. 
The men are fortunate in the conservative 
guidance of President Mitchell, who lets 
liquor and politics alone and considers 
the families of the worklngmen before 
his personal pri'>minence in controversy. 
His skill in making clear the just claims 
of labor in the mines is matched by his 
self-control and good personal example In 
life. Joint conference of reasonable repre- 
sentations of all the interests Involved Is 
certain to bring about a fair agreement 
which will be to their common benefit. 

Signs of Spring Fever. 

Saturday Evening Post: Spring fever has 
arrived. It always comes ahead of the cal- 
endar. Generally it is announced by ad- 
vertisements telling of remedies that will 
cure the tired feeling. Occasionally a 
bluebird comes along to sound a note, and, 
finally, under the leaves some one finds 
a snow drop or a violet and everybody 
begins to wrow weary. The disease is 
largely mental and the sovereign cure for 
it is work.

"You ask me why it was I so suddenly 
gave up the business I had been following 
successfully for three years," said Jack 
Melton in reply to the query I had put 
to him. 

"Well, you know I never did care for that 
line of business. Undertaking is the last 
one on earth I would enter into on my 
own account, but then It fell to us 
through the foreclosing of a mortgage and 
as it was necessary for one of us to give 
our attention to its management, it natur- 
ally fell to my lot, as I stood oldest and 
most experienced of the boys. My father 
considered it a capital venture for me also; 
'would have the effect of sobering me 
down,' as he expressed it. 

"The thought of spending my hours In 
the long w'atches, amid the long scowling 
coffins, rolls of sombre looking crepe and, 
worst of all, the dead, was not a plea^s- 
ant one to dwell upon I assure you. Ugh! 
I can even now fell the thrill of horror 
that ran through me as I contemplated it. 
You remember, Frank, how the boys 
amused themselves in talking ov€:r my new 
exploit— my rash break, as they expressed 
it. Of course you do, and you were one of 
them, if I remember rightly," he added 

"It came hard at first. I found the work 
and associations much different to the 
time-killing pursuits of the club, but I 
dived into my work with a zeal to find 
my efforts productive of good results, 
and ere long I was mastering the various 
little details of the business. But you 
know that old feeling of repulsion for the 
work-room, with its stifling odors, chilling 
atmosphere and great sober-looking lee 
chest st.aring out of me from the dark- 
ness like some imposing Indian idol never 
quite left me. 

"B' lo cut a long story short, after a 
time I fell into my old habits; spent most 
of my spare moments over the brandy de- 
canter, untn I found myself frequently 
recovering from the effects of long pro- 
tracted sprees. My nerves then were al- 
ways in a very uncertain and excitable 
condition; so much so that it was almost 
imj)Ossible for me to drag myself Into 
that hated back room, where my presence 
was getting to be regularly required. 

"One night I was aroused from my 
slumbers by a hurry telephone call. I 
jumped out of bed and made my way to 
the 'phone. It was one of those disagree- 
able March nights, cold !|,nd blustering, 
with occasional gusts of rain beating 
against the windows— one of those nights 
that casts one into a reflective mood, 
dwelling upon the luifortunate condition 
of those without and your own com- 
fortable position within doors. I found I

was wanted at the shop at once. Jimmie, 
the superintendent of the work room, was 
at his home sick. His a.ssistant, a big fel- 
low of the name of Charlton, I had dis- 
charged the day before. 

"Here was a pretty plight. The body 
was to be ready for shipments the next 
morning, and I must look to the unpleas- 
ant taak myself. 

"There, of course, was the driver, 
Thompson, but as his duties consisted 
merely of driving the wagon, he would be 
no help, was probably then safely in- 
stalled in his home after bringing the body 
to the shop. 

"As I told you before, I considered my- 
Belf doinif handsomely, busying about 
the shop during the day with two men 
ever present, but to be called to that de- 
testable place at the dead of night ajid 
with nerves and brain slightly upset from 
the last spree, it was certainly unpleas- 
ant, blood curdling. But the task had to 
be performed, and as for letting my men 
know that I felt any hesitancy in dealing 
with the case alone, that would be rank 
follv on my part. So 1 jnade my way to 
the shop and entered, at once, the work- 

"The body had preceded me and lay in 
the center of the room, where Thompson, 
the driver, had placed it. I hunted up an 
old kerosene lamp, we had no electrics, 
which fortunately was filled, and lighting 
it, set it on a chair near the head of the 

"The wind had risen considerably until 
It howled miserably, hurling the rain 
against the two small windows of the 
room with a vehemence that added greatly 
to my uneasiness. 

"Eventually the lamp sputtered and 
flashed up at Irregular Intervals, throwing 
an unsteady light across the room, and 
finally in one supreme effort, flared up 
and went out, leaving the room in total 
darkness. A decldedl;- nervous feeling 
crept over me; a moisture made itself felt 
about my temples; a dryness 
was in my throat. Bert Jones had nar- 
rated a funny story in my presence a day 
or two before, which I stranerely recalled 
at that moment, and as I hunted about 
for a match, I out laughing and kept 
It up until the walls rang with the echo 
of my voice. 

"But I failed to find the match box. It 
was not in its usual placa 

"I ran my hand along the window sill. 
It was not "there. 

"I rus=hed over to the next window, and 
in my eagerness to lay hold of the matches, 
unsettled a half gallon bottle of carbolic 
acid, which fell to the floor with a re- 
sounding crash, filling the air with its 
heavy odor. 

"I remembered I had placed matches In 
my toD-coat pocket and, proceeding to 
where it hung, secured them and relighted 
the lamp, setting it In the position it had 
ocounied before, near the head of the

inp these ag^grovatlnff Intervals the face 
of the corpse would as.«iime a peculiar ex- 
pression, and on two occasions I would 
have sworn the eyes opened wide and 
stared at me In a most unp'.easant man- 
ner. 1 tell you, Frank. It was a decidedly 
uncomfortable position to be placed In. 

"I lighted a clKarctte and. thrusting my 
hands m my trousers pocket.s, strode 
about the room, trylnj? to forget for the 
moment the work awaiting me, seeking lo 
force myself, as it were, into a stale of 
composure. I again returned to my place 
by the side of the body and for the tliird 
time started my task when, just as I was 
turning my head toward.s where the clock 
was ticking loudly, the hand of tho orj)se, 
with ilightninlg-aike ^irapldiCy. shot out 
from its side, sending the lamp spinning 
across the rtoor, and shattering the chim- 
ney Into a hundred fragments. 

"The horror of the situation appalled 
me. Again I was in darkness. My blood 
seemed to have frozen in my veuis, my 
flesh to have turned to stone. 

"That silent figure had aroused Itself 
from its lethargy and had hurled the lamp 
to the floor. Now It was probably i>eerlng 
at m-e through the darkness. 

"With a shudder and grasp I sprang back 
from where 1 was standing, when, as I 
did so, a terriflc blow struck me. My 
seixse-s reeled; I sank to the floor in a heap, 
dimly conscious of something cold strik- 
ing me across the face."

him as he listlessly followed the wreatlis 
of smoke curling upwards from his cigar.

"Well," he continued slowly, "there is

"No." said I, astonished. 

"Yes, this woman conceived the idea of 
hiring a man of iron nerves to enact 
the role of corpse." 

"Impossible!" said I "Why don't you 
make her suffer for it?" 

"That's my plan exactly." 

"What do you Intend to do?" 

"Marry her," answered Melton. "You

my bewilderment, "the dear girl had a bet-

ment.' I have not taken a drop since, and 
I can safely say It worked like a charm."

Chicago Tribune: Irtsidcnt McKinloy's 
prompt action in piomoiing Fredericii 
Fuaston to the rank of brigadier general 
in the regular army is in every way com- 
m'pndable. Tht da.shing Kansan has fair- 
ly earned his new honors. 

Philadelphia Press: The action of the 
president in appointing Gen. Funston a 
brigadier general in tlie regular army, 
coupled with Gen. Wheaton's advance- 
ment ot a major generalship, wiil be 
hailed with delight by t.he country. The 
promptness of the re<?ognitlon of the Kan- 
san's brilliant servi<e« gives sixscial ef- 
fe<t to the justly dewerved honor. It will 
put a stop to all the idle clatter about 
the bureaucrats and their supposed hostil- 
ity to the reward of men llko Funsto-n. 

St Paul Pioneer The attitufle of 
certain regular army officers toward tho 
proposed pronvoiion of Gen. Funston re- 
calls the fact that a similar attitude on 
the part of oflicers of our navy, in revo- 
lutionary limes, flnally drove John Paul 
Jones out of the American service and 
out of the country— any command such ;;s 
he deserved being denlgtl him. He ditwi 
in France, to which country Ive hail of- 
fered his services. So the must famous 
of our naval heroes, prior to 1812, afford- 
ed a pilitul example of the ostracisnj 
from oflicial appreciation . and J'^'Ward 
which our regular army men would, if 
they could, impose upon the most bril- 
liant of th. military heroes developed by 
the Philippine war. , , ., 

Washington Post: It Is high time to ac- 
knowledge or rather to hail, Funston as 
the real hero of the Philippine war. Fiin- 
ston has captured and delivered Aguin- 
aldo. There Is reason to l>e!leye tnat 
manv military persons are jealous of 
Funston's success. The fact remains that 
while Agtiinaldo has been killed several 
■times, Fun.aloTi Is the tirst and only maij 
who has ev-etr captured him alive and 
taken a receipt for bis delivery to the au- 
thorities at ManiUa. Its all rigiit. It s a 
clean case. A pompadour hair-cut anri 
eight strawberry nvarks are not to oe 
pooh-hooed. We have Aguinaldo. and 
that's all there is about it. Those who 
are envious of Fun.stcn may gnaw ni.^ 
and flee Into the monnlalns of He4«.idam 
and pool their lamer.tatlons with the

Reflections of a Bachelor. 

Xew York Press: When a girl first gets 
engaged she never believes her mother 
could understand how she feels. 

A girl's training is the icing on the 
cake; sometimes It is a mighty different 
flavor from the rest of it. 

It comes as natural to the average 
woman to tempt a man as it docs to put 
most of her clothes on over her head. 

No old bachelor's reputation Is ever 
safe with a woman unless she thinks she 
has got a chance for him herself.

Chicago Tribune: An Omaha judge haa 
been telling itnaiUs landlords da 
not observe contracts what thev should 
do in defen.s*^ of their rights. A citizea cf 
Omaha rented a building to be usi^l .is a 
hoiel. The owner agreed to ke»-p it m 
good condition. He failed to do so and aa 
a conseyuenc- the hotel business wa.s un- 
profltaMe. The tenant sued the landlord 
lor damages. 

The learned judge saddened the plaln- 
MT ^y telling him he had left undone the 
things he ought to have done. He had 
sued for damages and was entithMl only 
to nominal damages, if any, tK^-.Muse lii.«« 
contrlbutary negligence was the ol 
his losses In the hotel business. Ho 
should have had neces.sarv repairs and 
then had the landlord foot "the bill Said 
the judge: 

"If a man suffers an Injury that he 
could have avoid<>id by the exercise of 
prudence he cannot recover damagi^s for 
that Injury. If you rent a and ttnd 
that the furnace is out of repair, it Is 
your duty to get it fixed, and if It's so 
bad that It can't be repaired, threw U out 
and put In a new ome, charging the cost 
up to the owner who has contracted to 
keep the house in proi)er shape. Don't let 
your family freeze and then go after the 
landlord for damages." 

This last sient«^nce must Interest some 
Chicago tenants. There have bt^n In- 
stances where dwellers In flats have conv- 
plalned that the landlord did not live up 
to his agreement to kt:-ep the premises* 
warm. They have retaliated for bf>lng 
frozen — .«<»metimes by refusing to i>ay their 
rent and sometimes bringing suit to re- 
cover damagtis for the injured health of 
meml>ers of their familieis. 

This is not what thev should have <1o«ne, 
according to the Omaha Judge. If the 
heating apparatus was defective they 
should have thrown it oiit and had som**- 
thing 1>. ttir to put in, leaving the bmd- 
lord to pay the bill. If the fault was with 
the man who ran the apparattis. rnlher 
than with the apparatns itself, they 
should have thrown him out and put In a 
better man who would have kept them 

When cold weather comes again tienants 
whose families are fret-zing should re- 
member tho .advice of the Omaha judge 
and follow it if they have the courage to 
do so.

AS A MATTER OF FACT it is now becoming almost 
universal for women to buy their entire clothing 
ready made— not only for the very great saving 
but for the advantage of trying on the garments— 

Suits, Skirts ^r^ Waists 

—and seeing the effects from the greater selection of pat- 
terns and designs, and because every new fad arrives here 
as fast as the fertile brains of our masterful designers origi- 
nate new styles and have them made up in our workrooms. 

Ladies, remember it costs really less to buy the correctly fitting, 
stylish garments shown in our parlors than the ordinary, common-look- 
ing kind— "the individuality of the gown marks the individuality of the 
woman " The advent of our suit parlors and our splendid variety of 
hands(imely fashioned garments affords the ladies of Duluth now a 
chance to be in touch with the latest ideas of high class men tailors 
never before offered.

Pennsylvania Road Is j 

Deeply Interested In 

the Project. 

New York. April 3.— If the plans pro- 
IXMsed and partially completed by the 
New York cunne<-tinff railroads are 
carried through in the legislature 
Bro >klyn will become one of the great- 
est, if not the most important, commer- 
cial and transcontinental shipping points 
in the country. The borougti will be di- 
rectly connected with New Jersey by a 
gigantic ferry and with New England 
points by a bridge. The Pennsylvania 
railroad is deeply interested in the pro- 
ject, and its trains will encircle the 
borough and lonnest it with the Now^ 
York. New Haven & Hartford road. 
Thu.s Brooklyn. insti.-ad of being a ter- 
minal alone, will be a central point of 
distribution and reception for a gr-jat 
shipping system. - 

But one thing stands in the way of 
the scheme, and that is the clause in the 
new charter which would enable the city 
to grab ttie road where It crosses streets 
and highways after a period of twenty- 
five years. 

The charter now provides that fran- 

chises cannot bo granted f.r a longer 
term than twenty-live years, with right 
of renewal for twenty-five years at the 
end of that period. An amendment 
wfiioh has been offered at Albany would 
give the railroad the right of renewal so 
long as the rent agreed upon was paid. 
The citv generally demands 3 per cent. 

The New York connecting company 
has a franchise for a bridge over Ran-

Lighters are also in course of construc-

Mrs. Hugh K. Norman Yields 
Claim to Millions. 

Newport, R. I., April 5.— The threat- 
ened lawsuit between the executors of 
the estate of George H. Norman and 
Dorothy Prindall Norman, executrix of 
the estate of Hugh K. Norman, has been 
averted, the probate court today as- 
senting to a settlement by compromise 
for $1.'>,000. 

Mrs. Hugh K. Norman, who was Dor- 
othy Prindall, of Gloucester, Mass., the 
pretty daughter of a sallmaker there, 
alleged that her late husljand was a co- 
partner with his father in the building 
of waterworks in this section of the 
country. It was while superintending 
the construction of the waterworks in 
Gloucester that Hugh Norman fell 
madly in love with her. The union, 
however, did not prove a happy one. and 
a divorce was prevented by the Nor- 

When Hugh died suddenly, a few 
months ago. there was $15,000 due him 
from the estate, but with the announce- 
ment of his death came claims which 
more than consumed the ."flS.OOO, leaving 
the widow practically penniless. Sh'3 
thereupon made claim to a large ttmount 
as due her husband as a partner of his 
father in various enterprises, which 
netted the elder Norman nearly $10,000,-

Mrs. George W. Primrose's 
**Baby" Laid In $200 Collin. 

Now York, April 5.— Nestled in a bed of 
flowers, which had been arranged within 

a tiny white satin casket, in Mount Ver- 
non, N. Y., lies the dead body of Baby, 
Mr. and Mrs. George W. Primrose's pet 
black and tan dog. which died sudtleiily 
yesterday mornlnp. Th<e death of this ani- 
mal has caused mourning- in the famous 
minstrel man's hoiisehold. The beauti- 
ful, tiny casket, which is said to have 
cost $200, is lying In the front hall bed- 
room and the neighbors were calling all 
day to pay their last re.spccts to Baby, 
who had a wide acquaintance on "The 
Hill" and in all parts of the countrj-. Mr. 
and Mrs. Primrose had raised it from a 
pup. For nine years the dog traveled 
with the actors' family all over America. 
Mrs. Primrose told a reporter she always

The tangle in Company G affairs 
seems to have settled down to a contest 
for .supremacy between the enlisted men 
of the company and the commandin,i 
officer of the Third regiment. The en- 
listed men scored a point last evening 
when they succeeded in having the gov- 
ernor postpone a very important step, 
which would have meant the immediate 
mustering out of the company. 

Yesterday afternoon Capt. W. H. 
Hart, brigade quartermaster, arrived 
from St. Paul to take charge of Com- 
pany G's state property. Hearing of 
thi«. the members communicated with 
the governor, and an order came from 
St. Paul on the strength of which Capt. 
Hart returned to the capital without 
taking the company property with him. 

Tho enlisted men then drew up a peti- 
tion to the governor, urging that the 
company be retained in the service. 
Col. Van Duzee, commanding officer of 
the Third regiment, has asked the gov- 
ernor to muster the company out of the 
service. His request iis based on a re- 
port of a court of inquiry, which inves- 
tigated the company's affairs several 
months ago. The court, it is said, found 
that the affairs of the company were in 
a bad condition, and there seemed to be 
a general lack of interest among the 
men. The report of this court was sub- 
mitted without any recommendations. 
The commanding, then requested 
recommendations, and the court recom- 
mended that the company should be 
nii;.<<tered out. 

It has been said frequently that the 
court of inquiry found^that monthly re- 
ports of the company had been padded 
and sworn to, and that that was the 
prime reason urged for the mustering 
out. From a reliable source it is said 
that the court did not' report tsuch find- 
ings. This is probably true, as the com- 
manding officer of th.; company always 
sent the monthly reports to St. Paul, 
without submittijig them to the bat- 
talion commandant. Certain members 
of the company, however, admit that 
the reports may have been padded, and 
say that company commanders all over 
the state do the same thing occasion- 

One of the peculiar features of the 
trouble in Company G was the public 
criticisms of the battalion commandant 
by a certain non-oommls.sloned officer 
of tne company. Such a thing is almost 
without precedent in a w;di-rogulated 
military organization, and has caused 
considerable talk in guard circles. 

It seems that Corporal Reid of Com- 
pany G said tfhat company's downfall 
from the pathway of efficiency was part- 
ly on account of the fact that MaJ. Bid- 
well, commanding the local battalion, 
did not reprimand Capt. Wigdahl when 
the company began showing up poorly 
about a year ago. 

The major and the corporal came to- 
.gether on this account last '^vening, and, 
according to the morning paper, "the 
frank manner in which the corporal ex- 
pressed hi'? convictions is said t> Jiave 
taken the major off bis feet." 

In speaking of the incident this morn- 
ing, Maj. Bidwell said that according to 
his recollection of this meeting, he did 
practically all the talking. He further 
said that he did go to Capt. Wigdahl 
prior to the spring inspection of 1900 and 
told him that if l*ie company did not 
brace up it would never pas« the IrLspec- 
tion. The company, however, did pass, 
and Maj. Bidwell says that In view of 
the fact that it passed the state in- 
specting officer satisfactorily, he did not 
feel called upon to offer any more sug-

Ex-Senator Charles A. Towne, of 
■Minnesota, dropped into the Russell 
house this morning and left on the after- 
noon train for a visit with his rela- 
tives in Lansing, says the Detroit Jour- 
nal of April 3. Mr. Towne says that he 
is out of politics for the immediate 
present, but he would say that Carter 
Harrison might loom up as a presiden- 
tial possibility and then again h« might 
not. Mr. Towne considered tUb elec- 

tion of Carter HaiTison in Chicago a 
grand victory for the Democratic party 
and a fitting rebuke to the prejudiced 
press of that city. He did not believe 
that Judge Hanecy lost a great many 
votes on account of having changed His

The Primary Election Bill 
Passed Senate and 

The Ives Amendment 

Was Omitted From its 


Voter Must Swear He 
Voted For Party Pre- 

6t. Paul, April 5.— (Special to The 
Herald.) — Hie senate adopted the report 
of the conference committee on tlie 
primary election bill, but not without a 
struggle. The report recommended that 
the senate recede from the Ives ajnenJ- 
ment regarding party declaration and 
the Smith amendment allowing the use 
of voting machines. 

Senator Benedict, one of tlie conferees, 
moved the adoption of the report, and 
upon that motion demanded the previous 

question, which carritfi. 

Xo debate being allowable under this 
order, the discussim of the matter was 
confined to the explanations of senators 
in casting their votes. 

Senator Baldwin stated that he fa- 
vored an amendmen requiring that 
voters shculd take oath to support the 
nominees on the ticket they voted far, 
but he vigorously opposed the house re- 
quirement to swear that they supported 
that ticket at the last election. He said 
that a court could not compel a man to 
swear how he had voted, and he did not 
believe that this act should compel him 
to do so. 

Several other st-nalors tcck the same 
ground. Senator .Slockwell declaring that 
"one -jf the •not e.iiinent jurisU: up.».. 
the bench" had informed him that it 
was his deliberate opinion that such a 
provision would vitiate the act. The 
majority party, tiowever, had deter- 
mined upon the defeat of Senator Ives' 
amendment, and the report was adopted, 
33 to 25. The bill was then repassed. 

Senator Young, at the reque.^t of the 
governor, introduced an amendment to 
the Slvright anti-oleo bill passed at this 
session, transferring jurisdiction in 
prosecutions under the act to justices' 
courts, making violations a misde- 
meanor instead of a felony. He wanted 
the rules suspended and ttie bill passed, 
but Senator Daugherty made a vigorous 
objection. He said that prosecutions 
under this law in his district were in 
most cases "persecutions" rather than 
"prosecutions," and wanted an npi)or- 
tunity to examine the measure. Under 
tis objection the bill went over. 

Tweniy-two senate files were given 
their tinal pas.-age. including Senator 
Lords bill providing for a commission 
to revise and codify the general laws. It 
provides that the governor shall ap- 
point a ommlssion of three and appro- 
priates $.;."i.000 to carry out the provi- 
sions of the act. A recess was taken 
until 2:30 p. m., when the Torrens land 
act comes up as a special order. 


St. Paul, April 5.— (Special to The 
Heiald.)— Mr. Laybourn today intro- 
duced a resolution of conuolence to 
Hon. Thomas Bury on the di.iKth of his 
mother and allowing him an indefinite 
leave of absence, and it was adopted 
unanimously by a rising vote. On mo- 
tion of Chairman Mallory, of the insur- 
ance committee, the substitute for the 
Laybourn Insurance codification bill 
was made a special order for Monday 
afternoon. Mr. Deming had his 
Younger boys parole bill recalled from 
the governor to permit an inquiry into 
a suggested unconstitutional feature in 
giving to the chief justice powers not 
properly pertaining to hia office. 

The old Kandiyohi county capital 
lands came up on a motion to concur in 
senate amendments to the bill for the 
sale of the land»s. The motion carried 
and the hill was repases^^^i as amended. 
The proceeds of the sale under the 
amendment go into the general funds of 
the state Instead of being applied on the 
new capital, as originally provided. 

The report of the conferees on the 
primary elections bill was presented, 
striking out the Smith voting machine 
amendment, and the Ives ame'ndment, 
removing the requirement of an oath 
by the voter that he had voted for the 
same party previou.-<ly. The house ac- 
cepted the report and passed the bill as 
amended by a vote of 75 to 27. 

Three house bills were given final 

Ward — To legalize mortgage foreclo- 
sure by advertisements. 

Berg — Providing for drainage of lands. 

Xelson — To reimburse Grant county 
for expenses of a murder trial.

Buffalo Discussion as 

to His Montreal 


In -connection with the efforts of the 
AVolyin syndicate to put through the 
Montreal elevator scheme, the tollc-wlng 
story from BuffiUo appeared in the Detroit 
Fiee Pres.-^ of yesieriiay: 

"The trip to Montreal made by certain 
lake men this week in the interest of the 
elevator scheme has brought out some 
new statements of the case that are inter- 
esting^. It is claimed bv frlemls of \V. J. 
Conners that he is to be let out whole, 
prol>ab;y with little or no interest in the 
undfrtaking. but others say that this 
statement applies to the $50.IjOU forfeit only. 
Conners in. said to have spent in a,i about 
$213,<Mj in the Montreal scheme, only to 
rtnd that he was unable to go on with it to 
completion. The interesting statement Is 
also made that the scheme was not orig- 
inate-! by Conners, but by some of the 
very men who have now taken it up and 
propose to carry it through. Conners dis- 
covered what was going on through some- 
body's "leaking." ami he took It up and 
got the lead in spite of the others. If 
these men go now and give him back all 
the money he put into the scheme, when 
they apparently are in no way obligateil 
to do so, they are more generous than 
bu.siness men u.sually are. It is announced 
that the transfer of the Conners interest 
to the WaJlace-Kitzgerald-WoJvin-Smith 
syndicate is practically complete and that 
the elevators and \essel8 will stand at the 
foot of McGlll street, the center of tho 
Montreal river front, the docks there 
having been much Improved of late There 
is to be no delay of the work this time." 

The story will hardly l>e credited local- 
ly, ho%vever, from the fact that Mr. Con- 
ners was In Duluth for a conference with 
Capt. Wolvin. before he. Conners. pro- 
pose<l his scheme to the Montreal harbor 

A Montreal dispatch received several 
days ago said that the board of trade, 
comprised of the merchants ct Montreal, 
have filed with the Canadian premier a 
protest against the elevator scheme of 
Capt. A. B. Wolvin and associate.^. The 
rights asked by the syndicate were grant- 
ed bv the harbor commission, which action 
is subject to the approval or disapproval 
of the government and it is this disapprov- 
al that the board of trade is now seeking 
to bring about. 


L. E. Stevens of Valley 

City, N. D., Falls 

From Train. 

L. E. Stevens, whose home was near 
Valley City N.D.,fell off an Eastern Min- 
nesota fast freight train about a mile 
south of Twenty-eighth street. West 
Superior, last night, and was killed. The 
decedent had been working in the woods 
in a lumber camp near Duluth all win- 
ter, and started from this point In 
charge of a carload of horses yesterday, 
bsund for Minot, N. D. As near as the 
West Superior authorities can find out. 
Stevens attempted to walk back to the 
caboose over the tops of the cars, when 
he stumbled or slipped and fell on to the 
track. The train I'assed the point of tive 
accident about 8:45 o'clock last evening. 
At the first stop made shortly after- 
ward Stevens was missed by the train 
crew, and a message was sent back to 
West Superior to investigate the matter. 
The decedent was dead when found by 
the searching party and the limbs were 
badly mangled, the indications being 
that many cars went over the dead man. 

Stevens* father, who residf^ at Ash- 
tabula. N. D.. has been sent for to take 
charge of his son's remains. The Doug- 
las county authorities regard an inquest 
unnecessary. The body will probably be 
taken to Valley City tomorrow. 


Central Gun Club to Shoot 
For It. 

The Centra! Gun club will hold a dia-

Thirty-second avenue east. The shoot 
will open at 2 o'clock, but the entries 
will not close till 4 o'clock, in order to 
give all a chance to enter. 

The diamond medal is now held by 
Warren Mendenhall. of this city. It is 
expected that a number of prominent 
Superior shots will be over to compete 
for it, but Mr. Mendenhall's most daji- 
gerous competitor is .«aid to be John 
Nelson, who tied him in the recent shoot 
at South Superior. 

Another interesting event will be the 
shoot between Paul Sharvy and John 
Nelson, for the Wolls medal. Mr. 
Sharvy at present holds thi« trophy.

Rush of New Fresh Vege- 
tables Is Under 

The spring rush of new, sweet, succu- 
lent vegetables, fresh from the South- 
ern gardens, is beginning, and in its 
market report today The Herald in- 
cludes a long list of fresh vegetables for 
the first time this season. Fresii vege- 
tables have been on the market for 
some little time, but they are just be- 
ginning to come in quantities that make 
it worth while. Recent manifestations 
of winter in Tenne-=see, Mississippi and 
Louisiana threatened some of the more 
tender varieties and delayed shipments 
somewhat, but the damage done was 
not great, and receipts are coming quite 
freely. The list in:?lude3 celery, lettuce, 
onions, shaliotts, pieplant, cucumbers 
spinach, radishes, a.sparasus, tomatoes, 
mint, eggplant and beets, carrots and 
turnips, and prices are not especially 

Butter and eggs are firm. Creamery 
of the best grade is selling at 22 to 23 
cents, and eggs have gone from 12 to 
V2\*t up to ISVi cents. 

Lemons are easier, the California 
variety having come down from $3.25 
and $3.50 to $3 and $3.25. 

Chickens and turkeys are more expen- 
sive than they have \)een. Chickens 
have advanced from 11 and 12 to 12 and 
12V^ cents, and turkeys have gone up 
from 10 and 101^ cents to 11 and 12 cents. 

On meats the only change this week 
is the reduction of pork loins, from 10i»4 
cents to 9^2 cents, all the other meats 
remaining unchariged. 

To get in the game with young Mr, 
Phillips, of Chicago, corn has jumped a 
couple of cents and is now selling on 
Michigan street at 44 cents, instead of

Statement o! Police For the 

During the month of March the police 
department made 227 arrests. Out of 
this number 90 were for drunkenness, 20 
for disorderly conduct, 19 for petty lar- 
ceny, 10 for grand larceny and 4 for bur- 

Fifty-seven of those arrested paid 
fines aggregating $1337. Twenty-two 
were discharged from custody and 
thirty-nine were allowed to go under 
suspended sentences, which, had thvi 
sentences been enforced, would have 
raised the fine receipts of the municipal 
court about $417. Eighty-four prisoners 
were sentenced to the county jail, the 
aggregate of sentences being 1260 days. 

During the month the department 
cared for 395 lodgers and five insane 

There were forty-two cases of larceny 
reported during the month, in which the 
estimated value of property stolen was 
$1060. The estimated value of stolen 
property, recovered, was $605. 


Allegation That Microbes In= 
fest Books at Library. 

Some of the germ enthusiasts would 
fain create the Impression that when 
yoii go to the public library nowadays 
and take out a book you should seize it 
with a pair of tongs and look over It care- 
fully to .=ee if there are any microbes 
hanging on to the leaves or binding by 
their claws, says the Chicago Chroni.cle. 
Since it Is al! the fashion nowadays to 
discover bacilli and their sisters and 
their cousins and their aunts In every- 
thing we touch, eat drink and breathe 
the public library felt that it couldn't af- 
ford to be left In the rush, so an energetic 
member of the llbrJtry board started out 
on a determined chase and he didn't stop 
until he had scraped a well selected va- 
riety of disease-breeding microbes off sev- 
eral books, trapped them and placed them 
in bottles, where they are to be left to do 
their worst, while the library board will 
look on to catch them in the act. 

It has been reported that the following 
set of rules will soon be published and is- 
sued to users of public library botiks to 
instruct them as to the proper method 
of procedure in relation to germ-infested 

First— On taking a book from the library 
at once examine every page with a power- 
ful microscope before reading a single 

Second— Ki'.l every microbe, germ or 
bacillus on sight. A microbe may be best 
dispatched with an ax, a germ with a 
brick, fire poker or anything that can be 
ea.'^lly thrown, while the bacillus should 
be given morphine or Paris green. Never 
use hot water or Ice to destroy the beasts. 
The first will injure the book and the ani- 
mals will eat the latter and grow fat on it. 

Third— If you arc extremelv humane 
and do not believe in taking life, then 
call the nntro! wagon and turn matters 
over to the police. 

Fourth— Kven If you have not discov- 
ered any germs, microbes or bacilli on the 
first examination and one should crawl 
across the page after you have started 
to read be sure to stop reading, no mat- 
ter how Interestlns the story, and kill the 
obiectlonable creature. 

Fifth— After the killing do not undpr 
any circumstances throw the dead bodies 
In the street or in the air. They must be 
safelv put away. Kither bury or burn them 
or throw them In the river that they may 
float down to St. I.,ouls. 

Sixth— See that the book is well Jaun- 
dered before being returned to the libra ■!:. 
You should see to this washing and irrfK 
Ing personally In order that it may be 
well done. 

It is hoped that after these rules have 
been thoroughly circulated and placed In 
the hands of every reader there will be lit- 
tle further danger to be encountered in 
handling a book from the public library. 
However, there may be morp important 
developments in the near future. A few 
dnys atro Commissioner of Public Health 
Reynolds, inspired by the researches al- 
ready made by a member of the library 
hoard, hurried over to the library and se- 
cured six volumes of books that had evi- 
dently been muhc handled, and. hugging 
them close under his arm. regardless of 
all daneer. sped hack to the cit.v hall, 
where the books were placed In the hands 
of the city chemist for examination. 

The city chemist will not hesitate to 
tell what he finds, no matter how large 
or how numerous are the live things which 
he runs acro«s. At present there nre few 
In Chlcaeo who think that the books will 
be found to be so thickly Infested that 
It will be necessary to burn down the pub- 
lic library to save the lives of the citi- 
zens who come in contact with the books 
of the circulatlne department. 

Some years ago librarian Poole set 
nforit a little investieation alone tWs 
line, which broujrht out some interesting 
facts which mieht be supposctl to discour- 
age slightly the present crusaders who 
are camping on the trail of thp microbe. 
Mr. Poole sent out Inquiries all over the 
country to librarians asking them in re- 
gard to the transmission of diseases 
through the medium of books that were 
given public circulation. The answer re- 
ceived from each and every librarian was 
that they had never known or heard of a 
single case In which a disease had been 
carried from one person to another by a 

The Chicago library already has an ex- 
cellent system In operation providing 
against the possibility of contagion >ielng 
carried by books. The health department 
of the city sends to the library a list of 
a:i {)ersons who are suffering from conta- 
gious diseases. The librarian continualTy 
compares this list with the names of peo- 
ple who have library books. In the case of 
those afflicted with small pox who have 
books at the time the books are burned. 
Books In the possession of those afflicted 
with other contagious diseases are taken 
to the roof of the librarv and thoroughly 
fumigated with formaldehyde.

"I was employed once In a suit of con- 
siderable Importance in which my client 
was a lady," related a New York law- 
yer the other day, in talking of EJv-aris' 
death to a writer in the Kansas City 
Journal. "To insure success it was 
thought advisable to secure the services 
of distinguished counsel, and accordingly 
I was authorized to employ Mr. Evans. 
After talking over the matter with him, 
on rising to go, I said to Mr. Evans that 
ii would be the jjroper thing to give him 
a retainer, and asked him for what 
amount I ahould make out a check in his

paper for that siim. 

"Not long afterward the suit was set- 
tled to our satisfaction, and again I 
called on Mr. Evarts, this time to pay 
him in full for his services, which nad 
not been of an arduous nature. 

" 'How much do we owe you?' I said. 

"•'Call it $5000.' he responded, without 
a moment's hesitation. I thought this a 
little steep, in view of the circumstances, 
and I started in with a mild protest. 

" 'You know, Mr. Evarts, that you've 
had $1000.' 

" 'Yes.' he said, with a dry smile, 'but 
I've ^pent that.'

Lincoln used to be fond of tel'ing a 
Ptory which he got from Mr. Connaut. 
of a 1 iwyer in a Western town who de- 
pire<l the nomination for county Judge. 
Bays the Los Angeles Times. On the 
xnorring preceding the even'ng on 
which the county convention was to 
meet he applied to the livery stable 
keepier in his village for a horse and 
buggy in which to drive to the county 
town, sixteen miles distance, where the 
convention wa.s to be held. 

"•live me the best and the fastest 
fioFFe you have, Sam." said he. "so that 
1 will have time to go around and .see 
the boys before the convention comes 

Th« liverym-Tn. however, was support- 
ing a rival candidate, and gave the law- 
yer a horse that outwardly appeared 
perefct, J)ut which broke entirely down 
before half the journey was completed, 
»<nhat when the candidate arrived the 
convention had adj. urned and his rival 
had beon nominated. 

On his return to the stable, late the 
following afternoon, knowing that it 
tves useless to resent the trick played 
upon him, he said to the o.vner: 

"Look here. Smith, yoii mij'?t be train- 
ing that horse for New Tor«u market, 
and expect to cell him to an uniortakcr 
for a hearse, don't you? Well, it's tim? 
tvRsted. 1 know from his gait that 
you hav© spent days training him to 

Jiull a hearse, but he'li prove a dead 
ailure. Why, he's so slow he couldn't 
get a corpse to the cemetery ir. t'me for

Trouble Made Among Women 
By Telephone System. 

since telephones on party wires were 
Introduced tn Suburbanville there iias 
been a very thorough readjustment of old 
I'ueds, says the New York Sun. The party 
wire system oermlis three or four tele- 
phones on the .xame wire- Kvery trio- 
phone bell on this wire at the same 
time. Tht* special telephone that it want- 
ed is indicated by the number of times tho 
l)ell rings. Each sitbscrlber on a party 
wire quickly ac^julr^s a decided contempt. 
If not hatred, for every otlier subscriber 
on the same wtre- 

Su'ourbanville's social lines were formf-r- 
ly marked by membership in church con- 
gregations, in some one of llie do«t'n '"r 
more whist clubs. ari(i lastly by the butca- 
er w.^o .■=upp!itd ib' family. Whea Mrs. 
Smith wanted to invite a doaen coug^-niai 
women to form a whist or bowling c<ub 
she sorted out on her list the women wbo 
patronized the same butcher and went to 
the same church. 

Since th.- partv telephones have be?n 
put in it has maie th.» problem of collect- 
ing a (lozen ccngeniai women so complex 
that it would puzzle a graduate in dou- 
ble-entry bookk-eping. Not only mvusi 
the hostess b»-'ar in mind the congregation 
to which the women belong and the 
butchers whom the> patronize, but .^h ■ 
must be sur»i not to bring together two 
women who use the aamj^ party wire. 
Such a di?a.-<ter haopened last wf=*k. 

Mrs. Onering had never met Mrs. Twor- 
inff though their telephones were- on th.^ 
same wire. Wh.-n Mrs. Tworing's tele- 
phone was put in sho thoroughly enjoyed 
the noveltv of calling up all of her friends 
who had telephones a uoxen times a day. 
Mrs. Onering hart become aceuauoiied to 
her tele;>hone, and the continual jangling 
of Mrs. Tworing's cuMs annoyed her. 
Several lively skirmishes followed over 
the wire. 

One morning when Mrs. Onering was 
anxkus to telenhone for a cab t<S catctt 
a certain train she waited for Mrs. Twor- 
ing to get through lel«jhoning until ber 
patience was exhausted. Then she broke 
in on the wire with the request: 

"Won't vou pleiise give me a ohance 'i 
call up the llverv stable? I'm in a hurry.' 
"Are you. Indeed?" said the voice. 
"Who are you?" 
"I am Mrs. Onering. Who are you? 
"I am Mrs. Tworing, and I shall om- 
plain to Central that you have been list- 
ening." . , 

"Well, then, I will tell Central that I 
can't help listening because you are us- 
ing the telephone all the time- I have as 
much right on this wire as you have." 
"Comes from having id-bred persons en 

the wire, and " , , . . ^ 

"People who never had a telepnone be- 
fore, and " 

"lU complain, and 

"I wont stand 't a " 

"Such impertinence: " 

Bur-r-r-r. and both telephones rang oft 
at the same time. It so happened that 
Mrs. Onering and Mrs. Tworinc did not 
know each other by sight. They were 
both guests at a Helping Hand social lajt 
week, and happeniug to be seated to- 
gether they opened conversation witlioat 
the formalltv of an intr<Kluction. 

Th':y agreed beaulil'ully about butchers, 
and each wondered why she had not hap- 
pened to meet itie other l>eiore. Then they 
came to the subject of telephones. 

"I find my telephone a gr^^t conven- 
ience," said Mrs. Onering, "but I have 
the most disagreeable jveopU^ on it. One 
woman has just had her telephone mJt In. 
and she works it to death. She h.^beea 
telepiioning all this last month. I think 
I will apply to h:ive my wire changed. 
I cant stand it." , , . , ,. 

"That's just my experience,' said Mrs. 
Tworing deli;,'htedly. "There is the most 
impertinent woman on my wire. I know 
from her voice that she is a perfect fright. 
She is so curious that she listen^ when- 
ever I use the wire. If one could only 
chase the other subscrlbifs en her party

"Tworing did vou say?" asked Mrs.

The rule regarding the presence of any 
save members of Julia Marlowe's acting 
and working staff on the .stage during her 
performances are very strict, relates the 
New York Sun. It was with considerable 
surprise, therefore, thtit Miss Marlowe, 
entering her dressing room after the first 
act of "When Knlshthnod Was In Flow- 
er " .several nights :igo, looked around and 
discovered a weeping; man standing be- 
side her. 

Her first thought was that he had ridden 
In on the train of her court dress after 
the ingenious manner of her pet spaniel, 
"Taffy," who often performs this .stunt 
to the great admiration of all beholders. 
Tho man gave no explanation as to how 
he had gained an entrance but promptly 
began a story of suffering and disap- 
pointment which fairly brought tears to 
Miss Marlowe's eyes. He wound up with a 
request for $6, s.aying that with the sum 
he could buy a cap, conductor's badge and 
gloves and .so obtain a place on the Met- 
ropolitan Street railway. Miss Marlowe 
promptly handed over tho six, but 
plucked up courage to say: 

"I hope you will please try to return 
this money, because if you don't the 
next poor man who onmes to me may not 
faro so well, however worthy he is." 

With more tears the man assured her 
that he would return the monev from his 
first wages and departed. The next week 
she received the following letter: 

"I can't pay back the six, but will you 
please send me some more, as the com- 
pany wants me to pay for the car now." 

"Two hours before the late James Wade 
passed to his final reward." said a friend 
to the Scottsvllle, Ky., Times, "his pen- 
s'on check for $30 was placed in his hands. 
He wrote his name across the back of the

The Food Grape=Nuts. 

A famoup woman says: "I am so much 
in love vith Grape^Nuts that I presume 
I often bore people? telling them about 
the new food. You certainly will make 
an everlasting fortune from the sale of 
it. TSie article has become the best 
knov.n cereal on the market." 

It can hardly be called a cereal, fDr it 
is not like the common rolled wheat or 
rolled oats, but it is in the form of gran- 
ules, ranging from the size of a pin head 
up to twice Or three times tjjat size. 

It is thoroughly cooked at the factory, 
and requires no preparation whatever, 
but can be served instantly with hot 
milk or hot cream to make a hot mush, 
or cold cream can be pcured in the side 
of the saucer and a very delicious crisp 
fold is the result. Not only is tfie taste 
fascinating, but the nutritive value of 
the food is very .great, r-s .shown by the

The Belles of Indian Ter- 
ritory Are Heiresses 

Their Beauty Is the Re= 

suit of Marriage With 


From the intermingling of the white and 
the red blood in the Indian territory there 
has grown up a race notable for the beau- 
ty and grace of women, says the Naw 
York Sun. The girls of the Indian terri- 
tory- are no more the wild untamable 
dusky beauties of early Indian fiction 
thain they are tho wretched creatures 
found among some of the tribes today. 
They are to all intents and purposes c-n 
the same plane with white women of edu- 
cation and refinement, except that the 
strain of wild, strong Indian blood in their 
veins gives tnem a tmge of richer color, 
a brignter eye, a more lissome grace 
than ineir wnite sisters possess. 

Reckonevi In fractions of blood, these 
Indian beauties are more Cuucassian than 
aboriginal American. All of them, how- 
ever, are Indians, poililcally and socially; 
they hold firmly to their membership in 
the tribes. Ma.iy of them are one-quarter 
OT one-eighth or even oue-sixteetith or 
one-tnirty-second Indian; but the red 
strain Is stronger and shows, if not in 
some lingering richness of color or in the 
moulding of the face, at least in an all 
but indefinable fascination and grace, the 
heritage of a forest people. 

Among them one may find perfect 
blondes, with tlie Indian strain still sali- 
ent and palpable. And although they 
have succumbed to the corset of civiliza- 
tion, in almost all cases they have their 
less ti-ammelled ancestresses to thank for 
the blessings of well-nigh perfect figures. 
And one other of woman's best gifts they 
possess: Clear and low voices, with not 
a trace of the guttural intonation which 
is common to original Indiaii tongue.^. 
Raised among scenes of the bloodless con- 
quest of their race by the whites, they 
look without concern ujion the destruc- 
tion of tribal customs and the thinning 
and dying out of the old blood. To this 
last they even contribute, for so seldom 
does one of them marry an Indian that 
such an event is commented upon in the 
territory as remarkable. 

Before the middle of the last century 
a Cherokeie woman one day met a hunter 
in the forest. She was frightened at hia 
white skin and fled, thinking him an evil 
spirit. But he was fascinated by her 
beauty and pursued her into camp, where 
he learned that she was the daughter of 
a friendly chief. The hunter laid siege 
to the heart of the dusky belle and final- 
ly gained her consent to marry him ac- 
cording to tribal customs then in vogue. 
This hunter and his squaw raised a half- 
breed child who was a great curiosity to 
the red skins. As years sped by other 
hunters invaded the domain of the Five 
Tribes of tho Indian territory and married 
other dark-skinned beauties. Intermar- 
riage in the Cheroke-^, Creek, Choctaw, 
C^hickasaw and Seminole tribes has flour- 
ished to such an extent within the last 
quarter century that the full-blood ele- 
ment is now on the verge of extinction. 
The old men of the tribe are becoming 
alarmed and have passed laws against in- 
termarriage. Some of laws are very 
severe, almost jjrohibitive, in fact. The 
young Indian women object to these laws, 
because they do not want, as a rule, to 
marry the men of their own tribes. 

The Chickasaws are the strictest te- 
gardlng intermarriage. A law recently 
placed on their statute books rennires 
any white man applying for a llcenA* to 
marry a Chickasaw girl, first, to produce 
evidence that b*> has resided in the Chick- 
asjiw nation two years, next to furnish 
credentials as tc) his good character, and 
third, to pay $1000 for the marriage li- 
cense. Of course, the girl has and some- 
times takes the privilege of eloping, at 
th<- '<ost of losing her right In the tribal 
lands and money, and of disgracing her- 
self In the eyes of her, relatives. Her 
head-right is sc^mething 'worth consider- 
ing. A right in th*^ Chickasaw nation is 
valued at from five to ten thousand dol- 
lars, and In the Cherokee, Creek and 
Choctaw nation at from five to eight thou- 
sand dollars. The intermarriage laws of 
all the four nations named arc about the 
same, except that the Chickasaw nation 
charges JlfKXI for a license while the 
others only ask $10. 

There is goo<l r€«son for these laws. 
Many fortune hu-nters, attracted by the 
wealth of the Indian maidens, have in 
the past married into the tribes and 
gained control of large tracts of land, 
fostered outlaws and raised bad families. 
There were few happy marriages, and 
not until the wise men of the tribes met 
and passed an act making every white 
man show his credentials before the li- 
cense was Issued, was there a betterment 
of these conditions. The character of 
each applicant wac carefully examined 
before he was admitted. For several years 
after respectable and industrious white 
men married into the tribes and their 
children married whites. It was so on 
down the line until today the eighth, 
s'xteenth and thirty-second part Indian 
predominates. Of pure bloods there will 
be none in a few years. 

Still this open-door marriage policy, 
while it admitted ny bad characters, was 
fi aught with many evils. Any well-ap- 
pearing man, with a gift of love making, 
could go there and win a bride and a 
handsome fortune at the same time, pro- 
vided his record was reasonably good. 
Thi women there were not so highly edu- 
cated as they are now. But they pos- 
ses.sed a desire to marrj' white men. 
liFncp it was easy sailing for fortinie 
hunters. This class of men fenced in 
l:^rge tracts of the public domain, or land 
beflonging to the red skins in common, 
used the land for cattle ranches, and con- 
verted the minerals into cash. Many men 
became millionnires at the expense of th° 
tribes. They were known as galvanized 
Ird?ans or squaw men. 

Five years ago the evil was nartly rem- 
edied by the action of the tribal councils 
in disfranchising al! squaw men who 
thereafter married into the tribes. This 
checked the Influx of money-seekers for 
a time, and then it became as bad as 
ever. Earlv this year the Chickasaws 
raised the rharriage licenses to flOCO each. 
They now expect only true love marriages 
to occur. 

The average Indian girl of today pos- an excellent education. All the 
shrewdness of the Indian, combined with 
the thirst for krowdedge belonging to 
the whites, has filled these girls with a 
desire to advance. The federal govern- 
ment sr)end.«< nearly $400,000 annually in 
educatlhiT the youth of the five tribes 
The Cherokees and Creeks have the best 
schools, while the Chickasaws spend the 
most monev with least results. 

Tt is difficult at this time to make a cor- 
j-(^--t estimate of the wealth of these 
girls but the opinion of the government 
officials on the subiwn is that %^W> is an 
I'ndprestimate for the tribal right alone, 
while manv of the girls havo property be- 
sides. The Indian girl has generally se- 
lected her vocation before she is 30. She 
marries earlv and settles down easily to 
the duties of domestic life. Or if she Is 
Roing on the stage, and many of them do. 
she has completed arrangements for it 
while still in her teens. Others enter 
snecial fields where thevfielieve that their 
talent wl'l win them fame. All are am- 
hitious. None is sluggish. 

The wpdding of an Indian crirl Is th-' 
croy.-nins glorv of her life. She makes 
of it and her" friends for hundreds of 
mii«s around are certain to attend. The 
ceremonv i.s made as striking as possible. 

The Indian maiden who has the reputa- 
tion of bfing the belle of the territory is 
Miss Tf okah Turner, whose Indian name 
is Prettv Whirling Water. She has not 
only iK-auty. but also accomplishments. 
In another sense she is the greatest catch 
in the In lian matrimonial market, for 
she will come in for a large .slice of tho 
fortuno of her father. W. C. Turner, of 
Muskogee, a mil'i'-nalre cattle man. Miss 
"Turner is a Cherokee. 

Another Cherokee belle is Mrs. Rach-^l 
Davis-Brady, of the r;eorgia Cherokee 
branch. She came tn the territory only 
ten years ago. but she belongs there by 
ancestry, as she la of the famous Ross 
familv. 'the head of which. Joshua Ross,

when I am surrounded by those who do 
not understan/i thai I am an Indian, I

Strange Appeals Received By 
Mme. Sembrich. 

Sometimes the letters received by 
famous singers are more remarkable 
than persons unactiiK*»)med to see thcni 
would ever believe, tsays the Chicago 

Next to the autograph seekers, the 
beggars are the mo-st numerou,3. They 
want money irj the majority of cases, 
although their wa> s of begging for it 
are varied. One day Mme. Sembnch 
received a note from a Pole, who lives 
somewhere in the far eastern side of 
New York city. In the writer said 
that he pos5esfied a voice which would 
make him a reputation in the world if 
he could only afford to cultivate it. The 
writer said that Kdouard de Re.szke 
had promised to pay for half of thl.'5 
course if Mme. Sembrich would pay for 
the reet. 

It hapT)ened, unfortunately for the 
writer, that Edouard de Reszke was at 
Mme. .=?embrich's house when the not" 
arrived. She read it through, and hand- 
ed It to him. Immediately he recog- 
nized the handwriting. The letter was 
identical with one that had come to him, 
the only difference being in the matter 
of the names. 

Mme. Sembrich receives the custom- 
ary letters from her compatriots, beg- 
ging for money, but the most remark- 
able of her correspondents was an 
American girl, who wrote signing her- 
.self after her name, "dram sop." The 
letter came from a town so small that 
it is to be found only on a very large 
map. The letter was written on pape>r 
that bore the advertisement of a small 
village hotel. These words, "dram sop," 
were puzzling for a while. But the 
letter cleared up the mystery. The 
writer said that she was a dramatic so- 

The Poles find as good a friend in 
Mme. Sembrich as in the De Reszkes. 
Scarcely a day passes that some beggar 
does not come for help. They are al- 
ways Poles. One came the other day 
and signed himself "Count." with his 
name. He wrote that he had not tasted 
food for several days. As he happened 
to arrive at dinner time, his reward was 
larger than the others usually obtain. 

MarceHa Sembrich has a book in 
which every performance she ever sung 
Is recorded. From her debut at Athens 
down to her last appearance at the 
Metropolitan not a day has been 
missed. U.sually the name of the char- 
acter she sang, the place and the date 
are all that is entered. But in one in- 
stance there is an emphatic and etrik- 

ing comment — the only one in the entire 
book. It Ls the baleful, cosmopolitan 
word "Fla.sco." printed in letters an 
inch long across the page. There is no 
mention of her triumphs in many 
cities — only the single comment that 
this word implies. The scene of this 
disaster was Barcelona, a town dreadt'd 
by most singers. There Mme. Sem- 
brich sang at the beginning of her 
career in "Lucia." 

She had Just met with triumphant 
success in Madrid, and naturally ex- 
pected to meet with the same experi- 
ence in Barcelona. Singing with her 
at that time was Signor Pandolfini, who 
had previou.«ly been a popular singer in 
Spain and Italy. He was singing "Aish- 
ton." Mme. Sembrich made her cus- 
tomary success with her first aria. 
Then came the duet with Signor Pan- 
dolflnl. He was in bad voice and sanfr 
off the key in a way that even greater 
patience than Barcelona's would never 
have tolerated. The hissing and cat- 
calls were so strong that nothing could 
be heard but the uproar. Tho mad 
.scene was again a triumph for Mme. 
Sembrich. but it was too late then. Any 
public which had behaved Itpelf as that 
of Barcelona was not to he tolerated. 
So Mme. Sembrich broke her contract 
left Barcelona the next morning and 
then wrote the word "Fiasco" in large 
letters in her little book. 


That negroes are exci-ptionally super- 
stitious is well known, but it was brought 
to mind most forcibly last week by a re- 
mark, says the Burgin Record. Last week 
a lad was killed on the old Nat l..afon 
farm, lying just outside of Haj-roJsburg, 
on tho D.invilk- pike, by a s-aw-log rolling 
off the wagon on which It was being load- 
eil. A man remarked that the h.g would 

Erobably rot where It lay, as It would be 
ard to tlnd anybody willing to move it. 

It Is a UMief among negroe;s that who- 
ever removes a log or a tree that has boen 
the means of death will m»?et a similar 
fate, and there are many who share the 
superstition. It is said a number of years 
ago a man in Harrodsiiurg. It is supposed, 
attempted to steal a log from some wood- 
pile, and while cro.sslng the icy stre'^t, 
sllped and was killed by it. He was found 
the next morning and his body removed, 
but for six months or more that log re- 
mained untouched on the side of tlie. 
street, although the weather was very 
severe and fuel was scarce among the

When the son of a well-known judge 
arg'ied his lirst case before the full bench 
of a state court, some of the members of 
which were noted for badgering youth- 
ful counsel, the chief justice was particu- 
larlv active, and bee.Tii his questions l>e- 
fore' the counsel ha' finished stating liifl 
facts, says the Green Bag. 

When the young advocate came to the 
law thereof, he was constjuitly lnt«*- 
rupted by comment and Inquiry. "If It 
please your honor," the invariable 
reply. "1 will come to that point later." 

Finally, the chief justice burst forto: 
"This is a m"st extraordibary proceedlnflf, 
Mr. Blank. "You say that It is a suit en 
a judgment recovered in New York for 
alimony. I never heard of such a proceed- 
ing. "\\H)at Is your authority for bringinjr 
such a suit?" "If It please your honor," 
was the quiet reply, "my authority Is. I 
admit, rather rpiestioi^able and on^ that 
has often been impunged, being only tne 
constitution of the United States, article 
4. section 1." The chief justice did not 
see fit to ask any mor«^ questions during 
the argument of that case.

"Washington, April 5.— That the re- 
port that Governor Allen, of Porto Rico,

fest from the fact that the people of 
the island are already making repre- 
sentations to the president regarding 
his successor. W'enceslao Borda, who is 
chairman of the Porto Rican commis- 
sion, which recently came to Wasning-

Shaping Up of the Ore 

Situation Not 


Cleveland, April 5.— The Iron Trade 
E. view says: Another week has passed 
without the sCiaping up of the ore situa- 
tion. Several cf the leaders in ore coun- 
cils have been for some time at the real 
center of power In the iron trade, and a 
meeting is not expected until their re- 
turn. The I'nited States Steel corpora- 
tion while vet a considerable seller of 
Mesaba ores, is also still a buyer of old 
range ores. It will naturally be a very 
considerable factor in establishing the 
price for 1901. Another question that is 
not fully determined relates to the own- 
er.«hip of Lake Superior mines by the 
Morgan consolidation. it may be a 
larger owenr of old range mines when 
the season opens than it Is today, in 
the past week it has acquired the Oliver 
one-sixth interest in the Oliver Iron 
Mining company and the PlttsburK 
Steamship company. The Aragon mine, 
under option some time ago to the Oliver 
Iran Mining company, is as good as 
tran.^ferred. though the ."ale was not 
consumr<ated when the prtss annoume- 
ment of the past week was made. The 
price is understood to have been JJ.oW.- 
000. not $2,000,000, as reported. 

The proposal for the acquisition of 
the ore vtFsel and furnace interests of 
the Cleveland-ClitTs Iron company, 
which has been under consideration for 
some time, is said to he on a basis that 
would mean $9,500,000 for all the prop- 
erties This would represent 190 for 
the stock, which has been quoted lately 
at i:i5. There is no official confirma- 
tion of the rumors concerning this com- 
pany, but it is known that the question 
of sale h^9 had some consideration. The 
Corrieran, McKinney & Co. mines, an im- 
portant group of non-Bessemer old 
range properties, with an e.specially 
good representative of the Mesaba 
ranee are reported to be under option, 
together with the allied vessel and 
furnace intercuts, to the Pittsburg 
capitali.'^ts who are promoting the con- 
solidation of valley furnaces. Several 
furnaces are mentioned whose owners 
are given bv persons in interest, as to 
the probability of such a project being 
put through. , ^. , 

There hits \yeen Fome speculation nnrl 
figuri-ig on the ore anJ vessel handling 

arrangements such a valley furnace com- 
bine would make. Of larger interest Is the 
problem of concentrated management of 
the ves.sels of the United Stales Steel 
corporation, there being now Hve manae- 
Ing and clerical fon-t-s for these vessi'ls. 
Various Cleveland interests are compet- 
ing: for this i>r(>dlgloiiM contract. The 
frfiprht situation is still under cover. The 
on.sfinf-ers' strike does not necessarily put 
an embargo upon ore traffic, some of the 
engineers not being members of the union. 
Some of the latter, it is understood, are 
averse to a clash and some shippers speak 
with hoi>e of their ability to man their 
vessels fully when they are ready to 
start out. hTe proluibility of a late open- 
ing is already being discussed, some of 
the vessel men advocating concerted ac- 
tion to that end. 


Expressed Over the Surrend- 
er to Colonel Goodnell. 

Washington, April 5.— The territory 
surrendered by the insurgents to Lieut. 
Col. Goodrell, on Thursday, is a stretch 
of land fifty miles along from Morong, 
just below Subig bay, to Iba, a point 
nearly forty miles up the coastin Zam- 
beles province, a portion of country 

which has caused no end of trouble to 
the American forces, (ien. Greely said 
today that the signal corps had at least 
a dozen sharp fights in this vicinity 
while endeavoring to maintain open 
telegraphic communication wiih Man- 
illa. The rebels finally became so ag- 
gressive that Gen. Greely decided to 
have a cable laid from Olrngapo, in 
Subig bay, which is the site Gelected for 
the new naval station In the Philip- 
pines: to connect with Manilla, on ac- 
count of the difficulty in maintaining 
telegraphic communication overland. 
The laying of the cable is now in prog- 
ress. Lieut. Col. Goodrell, United States 
Marine corps, has been in charge of the 
marines at Olangapo. The news that 
this troublesome portion of Luzon has 
been pacified is hailed with satisfaction 
by war department officials.

"The Hon. John Hay." 

St. Petersburg, April 5.— The Official 
Messenger today publishes a detailed 
review of the negotiations conducted by 
the allied powers with the Chinese plen- 
ipotentiaries at Tien Tsin and Pekin, 
and of the negotiations that led to the 
presentation of the French draft of 
peace conditions. Which consisted of 
twelve points, but which are not yet 

The Russian government then makes 
the following stattment: 

•'While anticipating an early settle- 
ment of the Questions affecting the 
mutual relations between all the powers 
and China, the Russian government on 
its part considered it necessary to con- 
cern Itself with the establishment of a 
permanent order of things in the 
Chinese territorie.-; along the borders of 
which the Russian Asiatic poosessions 
extend for a di.stance of 8000 versts 
(5300 miles). To this end provisional 
written condition.* for a modus vlvendi 
were agreed upm first between the 
Russian military authorities and the 
Chinese governors of three Manchurian 

"With reference ta the institution of 
a local civil administration suose- 
quently, and aftt-r a careful consider- 
ation of all the circumstances, the 
Russian government ^rew up the draft 
of a special agreemetlt with China, pro- 
viding for the gradual evacuation of 
Manchuria, as w-U ap for the adoption 
of provisional measuDes to assure peace 
in that territory and to prevent the 
recurrence of events similar to those 
of last year. rnfortunately, with the 
object of stirring up public opinion 
agamst Russia, alarrttist rumors were 
circulated in the fortjlgn press regard- 
ing the purpose and' intentions of the 
Russian government. 'Falsified texts of 
a treaty, establis^hing a protectorate 
over Manchuria were quoted and erro- 
neous reports \vere tlesngnedly spread 
of an alleged agneen»nt between Rus- 
sia and China. As a matter of fact, 
this agreement was to serve as a basis 
for the restoration ^ China, as con- 
templated by the Russian government, 
of the province <it" Manchuria rwhich, in 
consequence of the alarmJBg events of 
last year was occupied l»y ■ Russian 
troops. In order that the requisite mili- 
tary measures might be taken, it was 
imperative that the question should be 
settled one way or the other. It was 
impossible to lay down forthwith by 
means of a mutual agreement, the con- 
ditions of the evacuation of Man- 
churia. According to the news received, 
serious hindrances were placed in the 
way of the conclusion of such an agree- 
ment and in consequence its acceptance 
by China, which was indispensable for 
the gradual evacuation of the pro- 
vince, proved to be impossible. 

"As regards the eventual restoration of 
the j.rovlnce to China, it Is manifest that 
such intention can only be carried out 
when the normal situiition is comr)letely 
re.stored to the emi)ire. and the central 
government established at the capital In- 
dei>endent and strong enough to guarantee 
Ru."3Pla against a recurrence of the eventa 
of last vear." 

The Russian .eovornment concludes the 
statement in these words: "While the 
Russian government maintains its pres- 
ent organization in Mam huria, to preserve 
order in the vicinity of the brov-id frontiers 
of Ru.«»sla, and remains faithful to its 
original and oft-repeated political pro- 
gram, it will ([uietly await the further 
course of events." 

Chicago, April 5.— Several hundred 
teachers from institutions in this state

bert M. Bolton, of the Milwaukee nor-

cago corporations, was submitted to

Mail Advices Received From 
Minister Conger. 

Wa-'hington, April 5. — Mall advices 
have been received at the state depart- 
ment, indited by Minister Conger befDre 
he left Pekln on his homeward trip. 
These deal at some length with the nego- 
tiations between the ministers of the 
powers, but It Is not deemed well to pub- 
lish the details at this time. However, 
the salient feature of the correspondence 
is the disclosure of the diflflcultles that 
have been encountered by the ministers 
in tlie eflfirt to find common ground for 
the arrangeiTient of a scheme of in- 
demnification. It appearing that there 
were as many projects submitted as 
there were ministers In attendance ."t 
the meeting. There is still no word from 
Mr. Rockhill, United States special com- 
missioner at Pekin, and the impression 
prevails that the negotiations tCiere are 
in such conditions that It Is not possible 
to make a definite report of progress.

An Independent Butcher 

Shop One of the 


The combination among Duluth meat 
markets may have some lively competi- 
tion in the very near future. One of 
the largest grocery concerns on Su- 
perior street is now in negotiation with 
an out-of-town meat man which may 
result in the establishing of a large in- 
dependent meat market to be run in 
connection with the grocery store, and 
in direct opposition to the combine of 
local retail meat dealers 

When asked today regarding this new 
venture, the groceryman confirmed the 
report of the intended branch to his 
grocery bueiness, but declined to say 
much of his plans until the present ne- 
gotiations are closed. He said: 

"Grocerymen along Superior street 
that have pone into the meat business 
find that they can undersell the com- 
liine and still make a good margin of 
profit. I believe that in establishing an 
independent retail meat business isi 
connection with my grocery store that 
I can make a good business move and at 
the same time sell my meats to con- 
sumers considerably less than the com- 
bine merchants are now doing. Recently 
a meat market proprietor came out in 
an interview, saying that the meats and 
poultry sold bv grocery stores were not 
fit for eale. I was glad to see The Her- 
ald deny that statement at the time, 
and wish to further emphasize the de- 
nial by saying that grocerymen can get 
just as good meat as meat markets, if 
they are so disposed. Frequently we 
can make arrangements with small 
packing houses and country farmers 
and get much fresher meatts than are 
purchased through the large packing 

Anglo=American Copper Min- 
ing Company of Parry 
Sound, Limited. 

Xo mistake was made In offering a 
limited amount of the treasury stock of 
the Anglo-American Copper Mining 
company at 15 cents a share. We are 
selling stock for no ottoer purpose than 
to secure an adequate working capital, 
to enable the company to continue min- 
ing and smelting copper ore from our 
Blanch B. mine, Wilcox Island, Parry 
Sound, and we know our stock is equal 
in value to that of any other mining 
corporation in the Parry Sound dis- 
trict. We make no exceptions, and we 
have every reason to believe we will

Mr. Lowery's Was Not 
a Bit of Pleas- 

Frank A. Lowery, the well-known I^ke 
avenue restaurant man, whose relatives 
and friends reported his dlsapi>earance to 
the itnWcc yesterday morning, called at 
hTe Herald office this afternoon and said 
that the note he had written his wife say- 
ing that he was going away to parts un- 
known, was simply a .ioke. He further 
says that he was not out of the city dur- 
ing the time they were looking for him. 

Mr. Lowery denies very emphatically 
the statement publi.shed in this morning's 
News Tribune, to the effect that he has 
been gambling a great deal in the last 
few nilirths and lost money heavily. 


Balthazar Thut Committed 
For Insanity. 

Balthazar Thut— pronounced "toot"— sat 
in probate court vesterday afternoon and 
talked to a jury examining him for In- 
sanity. His manner was the most matter 
of fact possible, and anyone seeing him 
and not hearing his words would have 
thought h»m the sanest man In the crowd. 
But his story was a rambling narrative 
of how he was being persecuted by unlonp 
and employers, how he had had some dtf- 
flculty with gas somewhere or sometime 
and It was always following him and mak- 
ing trouble for him. and how he had been 
nra'-'ng to the moon in vain for assistance. 
He was ordered sent to the asylum for 
the 'nsane at Fergus FalKs. 

So was Tilly Carlson, who sat weeplnw 
through the examination yesterday ana 
talking incoherontly about religious mat- 
ters. She was found to be afflicted with 
religious mania, and was ordered sent to 
the asylum.

His Heart, Liver, Stomach 

and Spleen Are 


Pittsburg. Penn., April 5— With his 
heart on the right instead of the left 
side and all his viscera organs just op- 
posite where they ought to be, Charles 
Shuppell is a puzzle to the medical fra- 
ternity. He is at the West Penn hos- 
pital undergoing tocamination. 

Shuppell came to the ho.?pltal Satur- 
day and today was exhibited by Dr. 
William Snively to the senior class in 
clinics of the medical college. Dr. 
Snively said that the case was the 
first one of the kind he had ever .seen. 
When the hand was placed on the spot 
where the heart ought to be. there was 
no heart there. The same way with 
the iiver. The later is on the left side. 
The spleen is on the right and the stom- 
ach is just opposite where it is found 
in must people. Shuppell was born that 
way, and did not know that he was 
unlike his fellow man until he wa.s one 
day taken sick. The doctors, in treating 
him. made the discovery. This was in 
Heodelherp. GermaJiy. Cnti! that time 
and ever since he has been in the best 
of health. He eats well, just the same 
a-s any one; in fact, has an unusually 
good appetite. 

More New Equipment. 

The Xorthern Pacific company has 
just received from the shtjps four new

From The Herald 

Washington Bureau. 

Wai^hington, April 5.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— It has developed that in 
obedience to instructions from Washing- 
ton. Minister Loomis some time ago 
made a vigorous protest to the Venez- 
uelan government against the publica- 
tions which have appeared attacking 
him and the attitude of the United 
States on questions pending between the 
two governments. This protest has been 
disregarded, and the attacks, he report- 
ed to the state department, have con- 
tinued. The department i>erfectly un- 
derstands, as Senor Pulido, the Venez- 
ueLm chaige d'affaires, has .said, that 
Venezuela has a free press. It also has 
an official publication known as El 
Tlempo. The criticisms made by the 
former this government does not con- 
cern itself with, but it does object to the 
official publication of the state making 
charges against an American agent and 
abusing him in unstinted terms. 

Venezuela will, it is hoped, be brought 
to her senses, but In view of the antag- 
onistic attitude adopted by President 
Castro, It is apparent that he does not 
propose to abandon his policy. It would 
not surprise officials hei-e should Mr. 
Loomis, before his departure, formally 
call upon the minister of foreign affairs 
and the president and inform them of 
the reason why his government has di- 
rected him to return to the United 

Mr. Loomis is not to return to his post 
at Caracas immediately after he has 
consulted with the state department. 
The consultation may extend over some 
little time, the purpose being to treat 
Venezuela as Turkey was treated last 
year, when Minister Strauss was kept 
in the IJnited States and the legation 
pl.Hced in charge of Secretary Griscon. 
Indeed, Mr. Loomis may not return to 
Vem-zuela at all. In which case Charge 
William M. Russell will represent this 
( ountry. Mr. Loomis has left that coun- 
try, in all probability, for San Juan, 
where he will take the steamer for New 

It is probable that serious develop- 
ments will follow the arrival of Mr. at Washington. He is to di.'^cuas 
with the state department his treatment 
while at Caracas, and should it be shown 
t.hat the attacks on him were inspired 
in any way by the Venezuelan govern- 
ment, steps may be taken to secure an 
apology or redress. The attacks upon 
Mr. Loomis were not due solely because 
of the asphalt controversy, but also be- 
cause he was charged with making false 
reports to his government touching the 
insurrectionary movement in Venezuela 
The minister did inform the department 
of the conditions as he saw them, and 
of the prospects of the revolutionary 
movement. The Venezuelan govern- 
ment could not have direct knowledge 
of the minister's reports, but because 
tSiese were follow-ed by the appearance 
of three United States warships in Ven- 
ezuelan waters, the newspapers came to 
the conclusion that the minister had re- 
ported as Very menacing and serious a 
revolutionary movement which the gov- 
ernment organs were trying their best to 
minimize. Therefore these papers lost 
no opportunity of attacking Mr. Loomis, 
and have succeeded in making his lot un- 

There is no present Intention of send- 
ing the North Atlantic squadron to 
Venezuela, for the government cannot 
decide how this m.itter should be treated 
until Mr. Loomis has been personally 

Senor Pulido. the Venezuelan cfiarge, 
has Informed the state department that 
he does not intendt leave Washington. 
It Is a decided change in his plans, as he 
intended a week ago to sail at once for 
Caraca.=. Should he take that step, and 
should Minister Loomis' post remain un- 
filled, the rupture of diplomatic relations 
between the two governments would be

Thomas C. Noyes. city editor and one 
of the proprietors of the Washington 
Star, has just returned from a lengthy 
trip to Cuba. Mr. Noyes, having made 
a thorough investigation of the condi- 
tion of the natives of that island, comes 
back to Washington with the opinion 
that they will never be able to manage 
their own affairs. Mr.' Noyes says: 
"My tour through Cuba convinces me 
that the natives of the Island are not 
yet in a condition to govern them- 
.selves. It seems to me," continued Mr. 
Noyes. "that the United States, at the 
earliest poissible moment, should annex 
Cuba as a territory, therefore gaining 
the commercial advantage that will 
come to the United States, and further, 
to prevent the unnecessary expense of 
the so-called protectorate." 

Mr. Noyes is one of the brightest 
newspaper editors In Washington. He 
gave almost his entire time, while in 
Cuoa, to the investigation of the condi- 
tions that prevail there at this time, 
and. ai« above stated, thinks that Presi- 
dent MoKinley, if he will advocate the 
annexation of the island, will make a 
good political stroke.

The contract has been awarded for 
the initial work on a government build- 
ing, more magnificent in proportions 
and ornate In equipment and decora- 
tion, than any outside of the depart- 
ment structures in this city, and it will 
be the first of a great series of build- 
ings destined to replace the antiquated 
and wretched affairs which have served 
as the naval academy since the founda- 
tion of that institution. 

A Philadelphia firm will lay the base 
of this structure for the sum of $150.- 
OoO. Subsequently the main work will 
begin, which is to develop a building to 
cost more than $;?.0<K).i)*)0,000. and ca- 
pable of accommodating 500 or more 
naval cadets. The first of the buildings 
in the rehabilitating process is now well 
advanced toward completion, and Is to 
form one of the finest armories In the 
country. The structure for the cadets' 
quarters Is to t>e on the site of many 
old rookeries, which have served as 
oflflcers' quarters for years, and will 
command a fine view of the Severn

and the hills of Maryland. Congress 
some time ago authorized the rebuild- 
ing of the naval academy at a cost of 
about $9,000,000, and the one just con- 
tracted for is the second of a number 
comprehended by the grand scheme, 
which, with a rearrangement of the 
grounds, will make the school one of the 
most attractive Institutions of learning 
in this or any other country. The 
scheme includes the restoration of old 
Fort Severn, a relic of the revolution- 
ary i^erlod, that has since served as a 
gymnasium and ballroom for cadets. who have read Richard Carvel 
win remember many references to this 
old building. With the exception of the 
residence at the academy, formerly oc- 
cupied by the governors of Maryland^, 
and the old fort, there are no buildings 
of any interest or beauty on the 
grounds, and for years the naval 
academy has been a reproach to the 
country and an eyesore to thousands of 
visitors, who expected to see at the 
school buildings and surroundings such 
as are provided for the army cadets at 
Weet Point. It seems 10 have been the 
early policy of the government to build 
at .\nnapolis in the poorest way, and to 
place buildings wherever there was a 
vacant place, with absolutely no regard 
for the convenience and economical 
working of the Institution. In the 
scheme of rebuilding it hag been the en- 
deavor to locate each building in the 
position best adapted to the routine 
work of the school, and most harmoni- 
ously from the artistic point of view. 

The whole plan Is expected to be 
carried out within three years. The 
flimsy character of the old buildings 
wai3 illustrated by Rear Admiral Mat- 
thews, president of the board which 
recommended the proposed plan for re- 
building, and who related what hap- 
pened when he was a cadet. One night 
when he and his comrades were study- 
ing in one of the old buildings they sud- 
denly heard a rumbling sound, the lights 
were extinguished, there was a rush of 
cold air. and then came a terrible crash. 
One side of the building had fallen out, 
leaving the rooms open on the side 
toward the water. The floor beams for- 
tunately did not rest on the wall, or the 
rear admiral mi-'ht not have lived to 
tell the story.

Bangor, Me., April 5.— Daniel W. 
Ackerly, of Beekmantown, N. Y., was 
arrested on the afternoon express for 
Boston here, just as the train was about 
to leave, on a civil writ charging him 
with alienation of the affections of Mrs. 
Bertha Rice, wife of Edwin Rice, of 
Bradley, Me., and thereupon was un- 
folded a remarkable story of the matri- 
monial doings of Mrs. Rice. 

Mr. and Mrs. Rice were married at 
Bar Harbor in 1899, and have lived in 
Bradley ever since. 

Recently Mrs. Rice has been conduct- 
ing correspondence through matrimonial 
bureaus with men in various parts of 
the country, among them Ackerly, to 
whom she sent her pictures and many 
love letters. 

A few days ago Ackerly came to Brad- 
ley and was astonished to find the wo- 
man married. She was equal to the oc- 
casion, however, and in the presence of 
both men told Rice that he was not her 
husband, but her deceased husband's 
brother, and accused him of having 
stolen the marriage certificate, which 
she exhibited to Ackerly, from her hus- 

Rice went to Oldtown to consult a 
lawyer, and while he was absent the 
pair started for Bangor. The couple ar- 
rived here at 9:. 10 o'clock. They in- 
tended to reach here so as to leave 
on the 7:15 train for the West, but they 
got mixed on the time and were obliged 
to wait for the 9:20 train, which they 
boarded at Great Works, after crossing 
the river there from Bardley in a boat. 
The woman did all of the talking and 
made all arrangements for leaving 
town. On their arrival at the Western 
depot they had their trunks checked 
for Windsor, Vt. 

One of the trunks was marked "Mrs. 
D. W. Ackerly, East Beekman. N. Y." 

After the baggage had been checked 
the woman put the checks in Ackerly's 
pocket, saying: "There, I'll take you 
to a hotel, and there you can stay while 
I go and get some trunk straps." 

The couple remained at the hotel until 
time for the noon train to depart for the 
West. They were seated in the passen- 
ger car when Deputy Sheriff Gould and 
Rice entered the car. 

They were driven again to the hotel, 
and there the woman again secured a 
room, making Askerly pay for it, and 
also the hacki^ fares. 

The difficulty was then settled, Mrs. 
Rice attending to all of the business, by 
the payment by Ackerly to Rice, of the 
sum of $50. When asked what kind of 
a settlement had been made Mrs. Rice 
said that they had fixed it all up for 

"No man ought to kick," said she, 
"who can get rid of his wife and re- 
-f ceive $50 for her. It's worth $50 to get 
rid of that plaster, anyway." 

In reply to a question why she was 
leaving her husband. Mrs. Rice said: 

"Oh, this one has money. The old 
one wasn't any good. He knew that 
Ackerly had money, and that's why he 
chased us. If I hadn't made the mis- 
take in the time of the departure of 
the train, they would not have caught 
us. But then I had to do everything. 
This man hasnt got much of a head." 

The couple left at 4:35 p. m. for 
Watervllle, Intending to take the 3 
o'clock train from Bangor for Boston, 
when It reached that city. 

Since their departure W. H. Powell, 
Rice's attorney, has discovered that 
when the woman was married to Rice 
she had three other husbands living, 
from none of whom she had obtained a 
divorce, so far as can be learned, and 
it is also said that her marriage to Rice 
was performed by a bogus clergyman. 

The husbands, in order of marriage 
are George Myshrall, of Bardley; a 
man named Savage, of Bangor; a man 
named Littlefield, of Greenfield, and 

Letters found in the house Indicate 
that the woman also contemplated 
marriage with a man in Wyoming.

The Man Who Smoked 

Up Five Million 


Cleveland, Ohio, April 5.— The man 
who smoked up Jl.000,000 is lying on his 
"death bed in a frugal home at Colum- 

He is Col. W. G. Baron, who became 
somewhat famous as an officer in the 
Confederate army and later distin- 
grulshed himself by leaving behind him 
a pathway of burned bank notes, certi- 
fied checks and securities of great 
value. He is suffering from a slow but 
fatal malady, And his physicians say he 
will never leave his bed alive. 

Col. Baron became widely known a 
few yeai-s ago as one of the most reck- 
less speculators '" the United States. 

He Identified himself with wild and 
visionary schemes, and where other 
conservative speculators refused to risk 
a penny he tossed in his entire fortune 
and won. Fortune .smiled upon every 
risk he took and he made enormous pro- 
fits because of the desperate chances 
he took. His madness made him worth 

Col. Baron had a son whom he loved 
with all the force of his passionate 
Southern nature. It was for this son. he 
said, that he proposed to build up a for- 
tune larger than any other Individual 
in America. 

With the death of his son, who was 
killed by a train. Col. Baron lost his 
ambition to attain vvealth, and seemed 
possessed only by a frantic desire to get 
rid of his fortune. He burned It up as 
rapidly as he had accumulated it. 

It was his custom to enter a cigar 
store and purchase a single cigar. He 
never bought two at a time, and in- 
variably paid for the cigar with a bill 
ranging from a Jl to a $20 note. He 
would accept no change. 

Then he would step to the cigar 
lighter and, rolling up another note of 
large denomination, he would light it 
from the cigar lighter. From the burn- 
ing money he would light his cigar and 
toss the fragment of the bill into a cus- 
pidor. He smoked from fifteen to 
twenty cigars a day, and they cost him 
for the cigar and light on an average 
of $100 each. 

His friends did all In their power to 
prevent Baron from continuing in his 
madness, but to no avail. They even 
applied to the courts to have him de- 
clared insane and to have a guardian 
appointed. On such occasions he had 
no difficulty in proving that he was 
perfectly sane. In fact, his only mania 
was for getting rid of his own money. 

A few years ago he found hlm.self 
without a dollar bill and without credit. 
He could no longer continue his mad 
career, which cost him $1,000,000 a year, 
and he settled at Columbus, where he 
now lives frugally.

Fred A. Hudson, who enticed Belle 
Walker from her home in Minnesota 
and later killed her at Chicago last 
Thanksgiving, was sentenced to 
twenty-five years in the penitentiary.

Unknown persons broke into the city 
jail at Cofflnvllle, Kas., Thursday 
night, and stole several gallons of 
whisky and other liquors that had been 
captured in a "joint" Monday. It was 
to have been used as evidence agaJnit 
the jointlst, and now that it is gone 
his conviction is doubtful. The liquor 
was in an inner cell, and two locks had 
to be broken to get It.

Vanderbilts Make a Large Of- 
fer For Property. 

New York, April 5. — One million dol- 
lars has l)een offered by several mem- 
bers of the Vanderbllt family for flvw 
lots at the southeast corner of Fifth, 
avenue and Fifty-second street This 
is more than $250,000 above the price 
paid for the property by John W. Gates 
and his friends a few weeks ago. 

Mr. Gates proposed erecting an 
eighteen-story hotel, with its four sides 
of marble. The Vanderbilts do not 
want the hotel on this particular corner, 
which is opposite the mansions of three 
of its members. Hence the offer of a 
big profit. If this offer is accepted the 
land will be restricted to improvement 
with a high-class dwelling or dwellings.

All Tin Plants Will Be Work- 
ing Soon. 

Pittsburg. April 5.— The demand for tin 
and terne plates is unusually heavy and 
next week will find every plant of the 
American Tin Plate company In full opera- 
tion. The Star works at Twelfth and Etna 
streets will start In full on Monday. This 
plant has been idle since June 30 of last 
vear. It is an eight-mill plant and em- 
ploys about 500 men. the daiiy ciipaclty 
being from 1000'tol200 lx)xes. Ail the inde- 
pendent tin plate plants have been in con- 
tinuous oi)eration since the new scale 
went into effect o July 1. One concern 
has its entire product for the year sold. 
Contrary to expectations the combination 
has decided to continue preshent prices 
for the third quarter of the year. Orders 
for early delivery, however, command a 
premium of a> cents a box. 


Because He Is Not Direc- 
tor of the Steel 





New York, April 5.— The impression is 
strong in Wall street that the tremen- 
dous selling of the shares of United States 
Steel during the past few days has been 
for account of Col. John \V. Gates and 
his immediate following. Col. Gitts wanted 
a place upon the board of directors of the 
billion and a half trust, and even hoped 
for appointn»ent on the still more select 
executive committee. Instead of which he 
was disappointed. 

Then he realized how Col. EUwood felt 
under identically similar conditions a few 
weeks previously. That was when Col. 
Gates discovered he could get along with- 
out Col. El'.wotKl In the Steel and Wire di- 
rectory. On that occasion Col. Ellwood 
resented the Indignity by selling the bulk 
of his stock in Steel and Wire, something 
like 70,000 shares. The corporation named 
did not fade away, but instead the stock 
advanced strongly. The selling commonly 
credite<l to Col. Gates of new steel is put 
at 12."..000 to I.IO.OOO shares. 

Col. Gates is not accustomed to the 
treatment given him in connection with 
the new trust. The people with whom he 
has l)een associated for several years 
have done about what he wanted, and 
liked it. One of the reasons he was put in 
command of tne big wire company is al- 
leged to have been because his fellow 
shareholders thought he could do less 
damage ther than he would if at large. 
No such sentiment moved the organizers 
of the larger proposition. They didn't seem 
to care about Gates or what he might do 
or not do. They were framing a harmo- 
nious directorate, and had no mind to in 
elude in the company any person who had 
to be placated under duress every time a 
difference of opinion arose. If Col. Gates 
prefers to sulk, the management will try 
to survive the affliction. 

The fight between George . Phillips, 
and his following who constitute the 
l)ulls in the Chicago grain market, and 
the great bear following which is ar- 
rayed against them, has already be- 
come one of the greatest spectacular 
events the Chicago board of trade has 
ever seen. The Chicago Record-Her- 
ald says the battle of Wedne.=day was 
a fight that "brokers will speak about 
for years to come." Phillips saw 3 
cents clipped off the price of wheat, 2 
cents off corn and more than a cent off 
oats. He put up $200,000 in margins 
in addition to $600,000 he had put up i)e- 
fore in the week, sacrificed all his 
wheat holdings in order to make him- 
self stronger in corn and oats. and 
came out at the end of the day as con- 
fident as ever he will win in the end. 
Now he predicts 60-cent com by the end 
of the month, instead of 50-cent corn, 
of which he has talked before. 

Says the Record-Herald of Thurs- 

"Mr. Phillips made a reputation for a 
brilliant, skillful campaigner when he 
brought his November corn deal to a 
successful close, but he put his repu- 
tation much higher yesterday by his 
masterly defensive tactics. 

"In the wild excitement of the board 
of trade, both at its opening and at its 
closing, he was the one quiet, calm man. 
The bears were out to drive him and 
his following into a panic, and they were 
rewarded by seeing him smile and stand 
around with his hands in his pockets 
while they were doing their worst. 

"He certainly lost much ground, and 
as the result of three days' bear oper- 
ations was put in a dangerou.<! defen- 
sive position instead of a well-protected 
aggressive one, but he kept his follow- 
ing together, organized and strong 
enough for plenty more fighting. That 
was his victory. 

"The campaign against him opened 
Monday, when the best figures of the 
market were 4 cents higher a bushel for 
Corn, 5 cents for wheat and 2% cents 
for oats than they were last night, and 
it was intensified Tuesday when the 
Ijoard of trade closed, by active efforts 
on the part of Chicago men to knock 
points off the prices in other Western 

"Everybody knew trouble was due for 
yesterday. It was realized beyond ex- 
pectations. as soon as the board 
opened for business the selling orders 
came piling in on top of one another. 

"Prices went down in all the pits. 
Excessive margins were demanded on 
the ground that a panic was coming. 
Ugly rumors were circulated, such as 
that Phillips had quit putting up mar- 
gins, and that he himself was frightened 
and was behind the selling movement. 

"The big bears, on whose preserver' 
he had been poaching, were out to teach 
the "little young fellow" a lesson, and 
they didn't care what means they u.sed 
so long as they could do it. 

"Every eye was on the Phillips party. 
Could Phillips be weakened? Could his 
followers be stampeded? If he joined 
in the liquidation that would add to the 
trade trouble, and make the bear vic- 
tory almost certain. 

"It took almost half an hour to con- 
vince the bears that the country bulls 
were not going to let go their corn and 
oats. That was a victory for the 
Phillips' personality, and could be ex- 
plained only by that almost magnetic 
control which the leader has over this 
usually incoherent following. 

"The second point that helped Phil- 
lips to hold his own was his strat.=>gy. 
Instead of rushing in to support prices, 
allowing himself to buy more and m ne 
of the bears' offerings in order to sup- 
port prices, the leader simply "»--tood 

"This attitude of inactivity meant to 
the corn and oats trade that the;e was 
more fighting force left in the Western 
crowd than has been supposed; that 
there was evidently money to meet mar- 
gin calls, and that further declines and 
still further calls could be met In the 
same way." 

Phillips, when interviewed, was 
esked if the campaign of the day wa.^ 
directed immediately at him, or was 
Just a feature of the market, said: 

"Why, everbody takes it that it was 
against me. I cannot see why the bear 
clique should deliberately go out against 
the country. I would rather be a bull 
and forever poor than a bear and grow 
rich. They can't scare me. Once a luil. 
alwayis a bull. That's why I won't .«ell 
or give up. 

"The be.irs have attacked me and 
forced down prices at the expense oZ the 
outsider. That's all right for them to- 
day. But they will suffer for it. I be ■ 
lieve now corn will go to 60 cents this 
month, instead of 50. If the sellers at- 
tempted to buy back as much as they 
sold today in the same length of tini» 
the price would go to 75 cents at once. 
All produce will be higher because of 
the and short-sighted actions 
of the bears. 

"The country people are with me. I 
have an immense number of clients. 
They believe corn will be worth r>0 cents, 
because of feeding conditions in the 
West. So do I. It is the logic of the 
situation. It has got to come. I am 
not advising my clients? to sell now. I 
will not advi.'se them to buy particularly, 
but I will tell them for tomorrow that 
corn is now low. that it is bound to go 
up. and that there is more money in it 
than ever. 

"The bears are against this oroposi- 
tion and they are against me. Are they 
on the square? Well, they advi.-ed their 
customers to sell when the market was 
going up, and they advise them now to 

today, and none»qf tte beai s on the 
market void any! * I, h4d made sales in 
other pits, bat nit intthe corn pit. The 
diop in prices m^an% that liquidation 
has begun. The selling was done by 
Liulis wno have got tired and want to 

"The price of corn kas got to<lrcp. It 
Is way above the export basis now. Ar- 
getntlne la selling corn for ICurope 5 cents 
beioW any figure wv can make. VV'hen tne 
furmiers out West say there is a shortage 
of corn they are lying. They always lie. 
They can tool Phiiliijs b^ It, but they 
can't foci me. 1 know there more corn 
out there than can be used, and thit 
prices aie tKJund to go down. Why, Illin- 
ois alone proaucod 4u,ooo,i/JO bushels more 
last ye:ir tnan usuil, and the siate Is full 
of com now. If the bulls keep on there 
will be tne sickest market in May and 
Juno you ever saw. 

"As for wheat, tlie crop that is to oc 
harvested is so big ihai it will put wheat 
on a 5o-cent basis. l<Yom 800,0\.M,iXX) to iWC',- 
000,1^ bushels will be raised. The Pacilic 
coast crop to be narvested in sixty days 
is enormous, and the only place the crop 
luuj been damagetl Is south of here in 
Kentucky and "lenneasee." 

Says thei Record-HerlJ: 

"Ihere never wis any such grain cam- 
paign as the one Phlhips has nad under 
way for two months past, which had ex- 
traordinary suctcii.^ for weeks, but whicr» 
has been going through a thrk^iteming 
crisis for inree davs. Hull leadiirs usual- 
ly have had rich syndicates behind them 
or have been working with their own 
money lor their own ends. Phillips in 
some> way Interested ih.? West in his bull 
views on corn and oats. His brilliant 
success In h corn deal last November 
commended him to the countryman as a 
champion. T'lio youth and entiiusiasm 
made him magneiio. When he advised 
early in the wint'.T the purchase of May 
corn the countryman responded as If ne 
had been invititd to a criisaue. 

"That country fviiowing behind Phil- 
lips has grown to pioporllons beyond the 
appreiclaiion of th^ trade. It hm pouivd 
orders in on him until it has m^'UiU |J ir- 
chasts in a sin,-,'le day of millions, r.nd 
the accumulation in the Phillips commis-

cents in February to 44% cents last baiur-

cents m a single day. It seemed for weeks 
irresistible, but there kept gailxering

she refused to reason. She said that her

the sound of Mr. Maloney, trying to imi-

A proposition was made yesterday to 
the Woodland company for the pur- 
chase of the Woodland street railway 
line for the sum of $5000, and it was re- 
fueed. The Woodland company a 
counter proposition, offering to sell for 
$15,000. That is still under considera- 
tion, or at all events no reply has as yet 
been received by the Woodland com- 
pany. Both propositions were accom- 
panied by agreements to do certain 
things in the event of Iheir acceptance. 
There is hope that the negotiations will 
bring a settlement of the situation. 

The offer of $5000 was made bv per- 
sons who chose J. L. Washburn as the 
medium through which to make the 
proposition. Mr. Washburn did not say, 
when making it, whom he represented, 
but did intimate that it was likely that 
the Duluth-Superlor Traction company 
would eventually come into the owner- 
ship of the line if it was accepted. The 
proposition was to pay $5000 for the 
line and to make a number of improve- 
ments and changes. Aniong these w ould 
be the building of a cut-off from 
Fourth street, at the point where the 
line now turns off in front of James C. 
Hunter's residence through to Wood- 
land avenue, coming out near Craggen- 
croft. The poles would also be re- 
moved from the center of the street 
and put on the sides; the roadbed would 
be put in shape and an adequate service 
would be maintained on the line. The 
agreement provided that a double 
track would be used to Hunter Park, 
and beyond that, to the end of the line, 
a single track. 

The Woodland company's offer is .0 
sell for $15,000. end, if the line is ex- 
tended to the Catholic cemetery, to pay 
$2500 of the cost. The property of the 
Woodland company is a considerable 
distance beyond the end of the line, and 
the company does not feel like giving 
the line away without getting some 
benefit. The line is represented as not 
paying beyond the point where Forest 
Hill cemetery is, but the opinion has 
been expressed that an extension to the 
Catholic cemetery might make it pay 
better The offer of the Woodland com- 
pany is in line with this idea. This 
would carry the line past the company's 
property, and would be a good thing for 

One of the ofllcers of the Woodland 
conpany said this morning that tht 
company had bid the line in for ?50.oOO 
two or "three years ago, and thought 
that $15,000 was a pretty cheap price and 
loss enough for the company to stand. 

It is understood that the offer of $5000 
was intended to include the charier of 
the Metropolitan Street Railway com- 
pany also. This is the company which 
is owned by men interested in tie 
Woodland company. Mr. Washburn .s 
one of the directors of the company.

has been considering the subject of artil-

should prescribe regulations, and under 
this clause he has sought informatiijn 
from the army officers qualified to make 
suggestions. He has reuiiesled the views 
of colonels of artillery and most of these 
have been received and are now being 
considered. When the regulations are for- 
mulated and adopted a chief of artillery 
will be named, and two additional offi- 
cers selected for members of the ordnance 
and fortifications board. Several colonels 
of artillery have indicated their disin- 
clination to serve as chief of artillery, 
as the selection cairles with it no addi-

Lizzie Buckley, one of the old school of 
peroxide blonds, stepped blithely into po-

from the pathetic music of "Boys Make 
Room for Your Auntie." As usual she dis- 
played much frivolous raiment in taking 
her seat in the box of sorrows. 

Ten days ago she was in court and was 
only released from the county jail yester- 
day morning. She went down Lake avenue 
to let her friends know that she had just 
returned from "abroad." She kept away 
from the policeman till late in the after- 
noon, when she hove in sight near the

In 1900 we were unable to 
fully meet the demand for 
straight-front goods and un- 
^villing to resort to any makeshift to meet the conditions. At present, 
however, considerable additions to our factory facilities enable us to keep 
the trade supplied with real straight-front corsets at retail prices from 
^i.oo to $2.50, and also our 397, 197, Empire and other popular 
numbers. There are over seventy styles and sizes of R & G Corsets — 
a corset to fit every figure. R & G Corsets arc the corsets that do not 
stretch. Every hairbreadth of stretch is taken out of the goods by means 
of steam -heated iron forms. This gives a permanency to the right shape 
and form that will stay in it until the last day you wear it. Every R 
& G Corset is sold with the understanding that it must give satisfaction 
to the wearer, or the dealer will supply a new one free of cost. If 
your dealer hasn't it, send us his name and we will see that 
you arc supplied with what you want.

Latesl Points Concerning the Much Favored New 

Bolero Costume, Which Is Considered 

the Most Useful of Novelties. 

The holorn stylo of bodice is very ef- 
fective in Mark, as variation may be 
obtained by touches of different ma- 
terial; or if the bolero is a separate 
garment, various blouses, shirts or 
vests tan be worn, so as to make a 
rhanfft- in th.^ toilette. For an all- 
black gown it is. however, preferable 
to make^ the bodice in one. as shown by 
our illustration. 

The «ut is the same in either rase, 
but if the bolero is separate it should 
be warmly interlined with domette to 
serve as an outdoor garment on mild 
days, and a warm shirt or blouse can 
be worn beneath it. If separate, the 
fit must be a tritle easy, especially at 
the armhule. and the points on the 
upper sleeve must not be too pronounced 
or they aie apt to turn up. 

This bolero fastens slightly to the left 
side, and shows the vest above it iti 
the form of a small round yoko. The 
prettiest t-ontrast is made bj' tucked or 
corded satin Orienlale and vigogne. , 

Narrow bias liands of straps or satin 
stitched on each side niijcrht be used 
for this motlel, or narrow Russian braid. 
as shown, or even group'^d lines of silk 
stitching. Small buttons in cut steel 
and jet are u.sed. and this is the only 
touch of r' lief to the costunrif. The skirt 
is made up with the silk lining, and 
opens in front, where the .seam is slight- 
ly lapped. The back is set in inverted 
pleats, and the hips are closely fitted 
by mitred darts. 

The details of the bodice^ will be seen 
in the diagram, which shows the vest 
or lining, but the frunts with liosom 
darts sewn. If made in one. the top of 
the lining is simply faced with satin. 
and black silk or a black faced lining 
should be used. Only the exten.sion of 
the bolero, which fastens over to the 
left, is fared with silk, and a bias strip 
for the V'ottom edge, which is loose. 

The bolero is then carefully tacked 
out to the lining, as showi. but the little 
darts must be first seamed up and 
thoroughly piessfd. and in vigogne the 
seams will be scarcely discerniiile when 
so treated. The top of the Imlero is 
fixed on to the lining, and the left side 
is only loose at the center front. The 
underpart can fasten down the center, 
and the folded belt be put on before the 
Ixilero is fastened. 

If made as a separate item the cut 
is the same, but it should l>e lined with 
glace silk, and mi:«t fit very closely at 
the top. A special vest of black salm. 

fitted quite tightly, could be made and 
this would be cut as the underpart of 
the diagram and th? folded belt still put 
on separately. 

Full instructions for makin.g a folded 
belt appeared in a recent number. 

A scond bolero costume is shown in 
our illustration, but here the effect is 
quite different, as thi.>9 bolera is a separ- 
ate garment, and warmly lined to .vear 
over shirts nad blouses. The gored 
skirt has two small Hat pleats at the 
back, and a deep band of glace, cut to 
shape, and mounted on muslin. is 
covered with rows of stiti hing, and 
outlines the skirt. The belt is of satin, 
cut on the bias, .ir for wear with morn- 
ing shirts a bias belt of the material is 
useful. To make it acquire a droop, as 
shown in the sketch, there should be 
two whalebones or steels at the back 
and front, and these set about one and 
a half inches apart, and quite an inch 
longer than at the sides. 

A shirt of cream-white flannel Is 
shown in the sketch, and a velvet scarf 
with feiret ends. A well-shaped blouse 
of tucked nim's veiling is useful. but 
glace silk lined with some soft warm 
wotden stuff is admirable to wear under 
a bolero. The little figures in our 
diagram show the cut of the bolero, 
and the small dotted lines indicate the 
shape and position of the stitched col- 
lar, which is entirely of satin. kept 
Hat and tlrm by a canvas lining. The 
stitching is sewn thriugh the canvas, 
and a thin silk lining is sewn over it 
after the stitching is well pressed. AU 
these are important items and give the 
proper style to the bolero. 

The satin band which outlines the bo- 
lero is cut to fit. lined with muslm and 
stitched. It is then pressed, and fixed 
at the etlge, and the small strap is put 
between the satin band and the ma- 
terial. The sleeve.^ are perefUly tight, 
and reach to the wrist, and there is a 
bell-shaped cuff of satin joins on. This 
cuff is stiffened a.nd stitched to match 
the other trimmirtgs. Five and a half 
yards of material, forty-ei.ght inches 
wide, is ample for either bolero cos-

Won Divorce From First 

Husband and Sued 

By Second. 

New York. April 5.— By a singular co- 
incidence, Mrs. Jennette Maxwell Hodge, 
who has figured in two divorce suits, has 
been sued by her second husb.ind on the 
very same day on which siie obtained 
a legal separation from the first. 

In Philadelphia Mrs. Hodge obtained 
a divorce from Itichard L. Maxwell. At 
or about the same time the decree war 
being signed in this suit the woman 
was being sued in this city by C. E. M. 
Hodge in tJie supreme court. 

Hodge, who is assistant traffic mana- 
ger of the Standard Oil company, asks 
that his marriage to the woman be an- 
nulled on the gri;unds tTiat she was not 
divorced from Maxwell when she mar- 
ried him a year ago. 

Mr. Hodge and Mrs. Maxwell were 
married Feb. 24. 1900. Tfiey went to live 
with Mr. Hodge's father on Staten Is- 
land. The bride said she had secur'^d a 
divorce from Mr. Maxwell in Philadel- 

Last May Mrs. Hodge began suit for 
divorce in "the Quaker City against Max- 
well. When Hodge f>und out about this 
action he left her and immediately ap- 
plied to the supreme court for an annul- 
ment of the marriage. 

The woman gave as a reason for her 
marriage to Hodge that she thought she 
had been legally divorced from her first 
husband, but afterward discovered her 

Mrs. Hodge recently created a sensa- 
tion by declaring that her little daughter 
Ciuida had been kidnapped from the 
Turkish room of the Waldorf-Astoria 
by her first husband. It was subse- 
quently learned that Maxwell look the 
child to Philadelp.hla and placed her m

Luke 24: 1-12. "But on the first day 
of the week, at early dawn, they came 
unto the tomb, bringing the spices 
which they had prepared. And they 
found the stone rolled away from the 
door of the tomb. And they entered in. 
and found not the body of the Lord 
Jesus. And it came to pass, while 
they were perplexed thereabut, behold, 
two men stood by them in dazzling ap- 
parel, and as they were affrlgftited, and 
bowed down their faces to the earth, 
they said unto them: 'Why seek ye the 
living among the dead? He is not here, 
but is risen; remember how he spake 
unto you while He was yet in Galilee, 
saying, that the Son of Man must be de- 
livered up into the hands of sinful men, 
and be crucified, and the third day rise 
again. And they remembered his 
words, and returned from the tomb, 
and told all these things to the eleven, 
and to all the rest. Now they were Mary 
Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary, the 
mother of James, and the other women 
with them told these things to the 
apostles. And these words appeared in 
their sight as idle talk, and they dis- 
believed them. But Peter arose and 
ran unto the tomb, and stooping and 
looking in, he seeth the linen cloths by 
themselves, and he departed to his 
home, wondering at that which is come 
to pass." 


When the scene upon Calvary had 
l>een ended and tlie body of Jesus had 
been laid away in Joseph's new tomb, 
the disciples, both men and women, 
scattered to their homes or temporary 
stopping places in or near the city. The 
women, especially those who had come 
from Galilee, set at once to the work of 
preparing spices so that when the Sab- 
bath was ended they might go to the 
tomb and perform the last deeds of af- 
fection permitted to the dead. 

When Sunday dawned they ':%-ere 
ready, yes, they even anticipated the 
dawn and while the soldier guard was 
still yawning from the effects of that 
divinely strange stupfir. and before the 
birds had sounded the first note of 
their matutinal greeting to the day, 
those devoted women were approaching 
the well-known tomb of Joseph. the 
Arimathean. Suddenly an unthought of 
difficulty occurred to them. The great 
stone had been rolled ;)efore the door of 
the tomb and it was man's work to push 
it back, but they had brought with 
them none of the men from their homes. 
"Who shall roll us away the stone from 
the door of the toimb?" This seemed a 
real difficulty. put the tomb was in 
plain sight and with the thought of the 
difficulty they looked up to scan the ac- 
tual proportions of the obstacle. When, 
lol the stone was already rolled back 
and an angel was feitt^ig upon it. There 
had been a qiiikins of the earth 
as the angel of* Gofl came in visible 
form lie lightning, with the white- 
ness of snow and rolled back the stone. 
Matthew says that "Fnr fear of him the 
watchers did qualae and became as dead 

These women were loyal to Jesus 
even after srrme of those who had been 
faithful to him for years had given up 
hope and turned back to their former 
manner of life as if Jesus could there- 
after be no more to them than a won- 
derful reminiscence. Their loyalty 
was rewarded. The per.<3on who Is 
loyal to the mastership of Jesus is the 
one who finds his greatest moral and 
spiritual difficulties disappearing from 
the path of duty as the duty is cour- 
ageously faced. The shirker and tem- 
porizer is the one who finds that his 
difficulties and hindrances multiply. 
Shirking and temporizing are forms cf 
infidelity. Faith means loyalty, and 
loyalty will lead to successful and pros- 
perous Christian character. 

The great reward of the loyalty of the 
women to Jesus was the privilege of 
being the first to discover the evidence 
that led to establishing the fact of His 
resurrection. They entered the tomb, so 
unexpectedly found open. and were 
greatly perplexed to understand the 
meaning of the appearance of things. 
While in that frame of mind, two men, 
arrayed in dazzling apparel, appeared to 
them. The women were filled witti an 
overwhelming fear so that they fell 
down with their faces to the ground. 
The angels, for such the men really 
were, a.sked them the strange question: 
"Why seek ye the living among the 
dead?" Had they not seen Jesus taken 
down from the cross after he had been 
pronounced dead by good authority? 
Had they not seen Joseph and Nico- 
demus wrap Him in grave clothes with 
aromatic spices? And had not the toinb 
been sealed with a Roman seal stamped 
upon wax? The livin:^ among the dead! 
But, fortunately for those women, the 
angel spokesman did not stop there. He 
at once told them the real meaning of 
His strange words. "He is not here, 
but is risen.'' Remember how he spoke 
on several occasions, telling you that 
he must die. but that he would rise 
again. That resurrection is now a fact 
as certainly as the death was a fact. 

The evangelists have refrained from 
any attempt to describe the resurrec- 
tion. They were not present to wit- 
ness it. They only testify to what they 
know, that Jesus died and that they 
knew him to be alive again, and that 
the watchers at the tomb told of the 
ai>pearance of an and of an earth- 
quake. The rest was matter of first 
hand testimony fr«m the disciples and 
will afford the material for the present 
quarter's lesson studies. 

The wimien reniem'.iered that Jesus 
liad formerly spoken words of strange 
inip'>rt. saying. "The Son of Man must 
suffer many thingi*. aiid be rejected of 
the elders and chief priests and S'^ibes, 
and be killed, and (he third day be 
raised up." On one occasion He spoke 
■words like these, and added. "If any 
man would come after me. let him deny 
himself and take up his cros^s da'ily and 
follow Me." In the- li.giit of the new fact 
.iust made known <o them, those words 
began to have ttieir proper meaning. 
The cross from tiiat .hour had a new 
significance to the'w.wJd. It was des- 
tined no longer to be associated with 
the vilest punitihrnipnt. It scon b(»c.ime 
an emblem of a follower of Jesus in the 
pathway of service to_ God and man; 
and when men had once assumed it 
they felt compelled to be faithful to its 
demands, no diffe^encfl what suffering 
might fall upon them in consequence. 
Today we look upon that emblematic and think for a moment of the 
suffering Savior, and then, with a flood 
of light, the cro.^s irradiates the hopes 
of ht.manity for life present and im- 
mortal. The cross ^was a shadow, but 
now it is a beacon which gathers its 
radiance from the fact that its most 
illustri'Us victim triumphed over the 
dc-dth it brought and is risen to .give 
new life to man. 


Blessed he the memory of Mary Mag- 
dajene. of Joanna, of Mary, the mother 
of Jame.^ and the other women who on 
that lesurrectlon morning tarried not 
in ecstatic delight to revel in the society 
of an.gels. but hastened quickly away to 
carry the good tiding.^ they had heard to 
the other disciples. They set a beauti- 
ful example for all believers. The angel 

said, "Go tell His disciplea and Peter." 
Peter's name was probably mentiimed 
because his faith had been so shaken. 
Each one to whom personally Jesus is 
the risen Savior ought to go quickly to 
tell friends or loved ones of him. 
Especially, when a believer in Christ 
finds some new evidence that may 
strengthen or establish the shaken or 
shattered faith of some other 
heart ought he to hasten with 
it as an invitation from 

Christ Himself to "Come and .see" that 
the power of Christ is real and abiding 
When the women had told their story 
to the rest of the disciples, the men 
called it "Nonsense," or, as Luke says, 
"These words appeared in their sight as 
idle talk, and they disbelieved them." 
Peter arose at once and ran to the tomb 
to verify for himself the strange report. 
He found that the report the women 
had given wais correct. John records the 
incident with greater fulness than the 
other gospel writers, and its discussion 
must be left until another wefek. Let 
this suffice for the pre.sent. Peter went 
away from the empty tomb wondering 
with himself at the strange things he 
had seen. His head must have been in 
a whirl and his heart in a ferment. He 
had often wondered at the things Jesus 
had done, and now, after all seemed to 
be over, the gretaest wonder of all was 
made known to him. He could not un- 
derstand, and went away toward his 
lodgings in great perplexity. It was a 
long time after that eventful morning 
before Peter could write his immortal 
epistles. The seed of the gospel of life 
had been planted in him, but it required 
a long sesu5on of storm and sunshine in 
which to develop that seed into a plant 
that would bring forth ripened fruit 
mellow with it6 garnered richness. 
Mark tells us that a part of the mess- 
age which the angel sent to the dis- 
ciples Insti-ueted them to meet .fesus in 
Galilee, the scene of the greater part of 
their work and preaching. "He goeth 
before you into Galilee." 

His disciples had known Him as one 
with power and disposition to bless 
them. The believer now knows that, in 
offering His life He did not cease to ex- 
ist nor lose His power to bless th<» 
world. He is living and is perpetually 
renewing His work in the human heart, 
so that we c-an use with truth such ex- 
pressions as "We live in Christ" and 
"Christ lives in us." 

Jesus is divine. The divinity nowhere 
appears so clearly as it does here in His 
resurrection, which gives value to H's 
sacrifice and lends hope of its perpetual 
eflficiencv. In the Old Testament there 
is a doctrine of resurrection in embryo. 
Isaiah had a foregleam of it. In the 
26th chapter of his prophecies he says of 
the Lord "Thy dew is as the dew of 
herbs:" thus declaring in that connec- 
tion that his thought of the people's 
future hope sprang from his "Convic- 
tion of the sufficiency of God Himself. 
Jesus voices the same thought with 
greater force when He says, "God is not 
a God of the dead but of the living." 
ard the taeching becomes thoroughly 
Christian when Jeaus further declares, 
"Because I shall live, ye shall live al^o. ' 
The expression of this eternal hope be- 
comes exubi'rant in St. Paul's grent mas- 
terpiece on the subject. Jesus himself 
make assurance doubly sure by 
declaring to John that, as "The Living 
One." he holds the keys of death and of 
Hades. Many are the stories which the 
poetrv of foe past brings to us about a 
world' of shades. Dante tells about a 
celebrated guide who ciceroned him in 
his walks about that land. But. better 
than any Dantean reiwrts are the few^ 
reassuring words that Jesus speaks to 
us in telling us that he holds the keys 
of man's future destiny. In holding 
these keys he removes the fear of deatn 
and reassures us of our life in that land 
beyond. The sting of death is sin. Jesus 
resists sin and removes it's venom. 
Death then becomes the entrance upon a 
part of our life in which we may have 
larger spiritual development than we 
have had here. Our hope tells us that it 
will be a better life than this has been 
in every respect. In his resurrection 
Jesus gives us the promise that this fut- 
ure part of our existence will be in per- 
sonality as individual as that we now 
know, yet so pure as to be past the rava- 
ges of temporal mutations. 

With ouch thoughts as these, and hav- 
ing followed the spiritual leadership of 
such a Savior, we can go to Jordan s 
brink and seem to touch our feet m it s 
cold wave, yet we falter not. We can see 
the casket of a loved one lowered into 
the earth; the sun Hlte the taper of life 
may be sinking to rest. but. ere it goes, 
it sends a gleam of light the hills 
to fall as a heavenly promise of hope on 
the poor emblems of our human inven- 

"And wEien my task on earth Is done, 
When, by thy grace, the victory's won. 
E'en death's cold wave I will not flee. 
Since God through Jordan leadeth me." 

ChrlPtlanity could never have been but 
for tlie resurrection. The memory of 
Jesus would have tarried with his disclp. 
les as a delicious and lasting fragrance, 
and the impress of his character would 
have told on future generations of his 
kinsmen. But there would have been 
the end of it. The apostolic love of 
Christ blossomed into Christianity when 
that group of disciples perceived that 
their teacher and friend was vicloriour 
over death. Christ's first great message 
to them had been of God as their Father. 
His last great message was on the mean- 
\ ing and secret of the life more abundant, 
\ tfiat life which transcends all temples 
and priesthoods and which Is of the 
spirit spiritual. 

Stephen .seems to have been the first 
one in the early church to catch the ful- 
ness of the Lord's meaning and to her- 
ald the message of a spiritual church. 
Then Paul caught it up. How often he 
must have longed for Stephen at 
stoning he had been a witness and a 
helper! But Stephen was gone and Paul 
had to fight the battle without him. 
After a while Peter wrote about the "In- 
heritance incorruptible." One by one 
the apostles all fell in line, convinced 
of the truth of the great fact "He is 
risen." On the basis of that convic- 
tion the Christian church became a 
reality. It has progressed in it's con- 
quest of the world by following ttie lead- 
ership of the risen Savior who goes be- 
fore as the great "captain of our salva-

When speaking of this Mr. D. N. Sinks, 
of Troy, Ohio, says: "Some time ago 
I had a severe attack of rheumatism in 
my arm and shoulder. I tried numerous 
remedies, but got no relief until I was 
recommended by Messrs. George F. 
-Parsons & Co.. druggists of this place,, 
to try Chamberlain's Pain Balm. They 
recommended it so highly that I bought 
a Ijottle. 1 was soon relieved of all 
pain. i have since recommended this 
liniment to many of my friends, who 
agree with me that it is the best remedy 
for muscular rheumatism in the mar- 
ket." For sale at Boyce's drug store.

Omega Oil 


thing that goes in where the 
roots of Rheumatism are locat- 
ed is Omega Oil. The little 
Swiss gTeen herb that they put 
into this liniment is the thing 
that does the work. The doc- 
tors can't explain how or why 
Omega Oil cures Rheu- 
matism, but it dcci do 
it as sure as you're 
bom. Bogin by taking 
a nice warm 
bath. Wipe 

yourself thoroughly dry 
with a towel. Then pour 
a little Omega Oil in your 
hand and rub the place 
that hurts like a good 
fellow. Keep up the rub- 
bing until all the oil goes 
into the pores of the skin. 
If the pain is stubborn, 
put some Omega Oil on 
a piece of cotton and 
bind it on the sore spot 
over night. In some cases 
a cure will come in one 
treatment, but in real bad 
cases you have to keep 
on doing this way quite a 
little while. Omega Oil is 
good for everything a lini- 
irientotighttobegood for. 

Omega Oil is for sale in most 
dniR stores. Any ilruggist can get 
a supply of his wholesaler. If your 
dealer does not keep it, the Omega 
Clieiuical Co., 257 Broadwav. New

paid, if you will send soc. in CAsh,

His Opening at Milwau^ 

kee Proved a Marked 


New York. April 5.— William Emer- 
son, at one time the best known min- 
strel in the country, who has been In 
sore straits for some time, is once more 
on the road to the recovery of his lost 
voice and fortunes. He is now with 
West's minstrels, and as long as he 
abstains from wasting his charms in 
cafes and saloons he will have a place 
Avith that organization. 

It was only a few months ago that the 
newspapers of the country devoted 
columns to a pathetic recital of the mis- 
fortunes that had visited this ballad 
singer. He was pictured as wandering 
fmm town to town, without 'lome and 
without friends, suffering with cold and 
hunger. The stories were net exagger- 

Those who knew Emerson best shoik 
their heads, made some mention of the 
evils of dissipation and suggested a ben- 
efit. TSiese suggestions never bore fruit, 
and of late Emerson has drifted entirely 
from the public gaze. 

Emer.»o'i had an overwhelming fond- 
ness for liquor, and it led to the partial 
loss of his voice and an unreliability 
that prevented him from securing con- 
tracts. About a year ago, only a few- 
days after he had drifted into New Or- 
leans, Emerson slipped on the street and 
his ankle was sprained. 

He paid little attention to the injury, 
for he was without funds to secure med- 
ical aid. Thus it came about that the 
singer almost lost the use of his leg. 

It was in this condition that William 
H. West found the minstrel in Cincin- 
nati about a month ago. He saw Emer- 
son limping along Walnut street and 
stopped him. Emerson recited his woes, 
and assured West he hadn't the slightest 
Idea where he would secure his next 
meal. West made an appointment with 
him for that evening, and then conferred 
with Sanford B. Rickaby. his general 
manager, as to the best means of render- 
ing assistance. 

As the ret^ult of this conference. Em- 
erson was sent to a ho.spital in Cincin- 
natll, and was promised a position of 
Bome sort in West's company If he 
would abstain from liquor. Every at- 
tention was padl to him in the hospital, 
and it was not long before he began to 
reeemble the tenor who had charmed so 
manv audiences in the old days. 

He Joined the West show last Satur- 
day at Milwaukee. He was well dressed, 
had almost entirely recovered the use 
of hitj leg, and announced his voice had 
come hack to him. He was put on the 
bill that evening, and gave his familiar 
rendition of "if I could Only Pick a 
Winner." Judging from the comments 
of the Milwaukee press his s^uccess was 
Immense, and he will continue with the 
company for the balance of the season. 
This marks his first appearance in 
two years. Ffiteen years ago Emerson 
went to London with Haverly's Masta- 
don mlnlstrels and scored a big success. 
After the company had closed its en- 
gagement he remained for two years In 
the London music halls. For eight years 
he remained at the head of his own 
company, playing principally through- 
out the West. When this organization 
went out of existence he appeared with 
sev^eral minstrel companies. His last en- 
gagement liefore the present one wcs 
with William C. Cleveland's minstrels. 

Andrew Porter, of West Superior, 
who will be the manager of the Su- 
perior ball team the coming season, wa-s 
in West Duluth this morning to get 
some of the Superior uniforms that 
were left here last fall after the Su- 
perior and Duluth ball teams consoli- 
dated. He wants the uniforms to put 
some of the men that he has in mind 
out for practic'e during the next few- 
days, as the ground is drying out nicely 
since the present spell of warm wea- 
ther. Manager Porter, who captained 
the Superior ball team for the past two 
or three seasons, is a veteran ball 
player, and will probably be found at 
his old place on second base as well as 
managing the team this summer. He 
said this morning that the prospects for 
basel'all the coming season are veiy 
good, and that over in Superior the fans 
are taking hold of the matter with a 
great deal of enthusiasm. Marty Lee. 
who caught for Superior last year, is 
the only man yet signed by Manager 
Pt»rter. but he is in correspondence with 
a number of good men, and says that 
the Superior team will surely be 
stronger this year than ever before. He 
has not yet considered a schedule for 
the number of games to be played this 
.season, but believes that the scheme of 
joining the principal towns of North- 
ern Minnetsota, Wiscons^in and Michigan 
into a Northwestern league, under Na- 
tional league protection, will prove a 
winning card, and baseball will receive 
a boost that it has not experienced in 
these parts in years.

Light on Methods of Pres« 

ident Castro. 

Caused Strained Relations 
With Venezuela. 

New York, April 6.— The Tribune this 
morning contains a long article purport- 
ing to give a clear account of the cir- 
cumstances responsible for the strained 
relations betiveen the United States and 
Venezuela. It comes from a writer in 
New York not connected with the 
paper and in order that it might be 
fairly criticized or corrected, printed 
proofs of it were submitted to tha 
Venezuelan legation in Washington and 
to the Venezuelan consulate in the city. 
The article begins by saying that the 
recall of United States Minister Loomis 
from Venezuela has released much in- 
formation concerning the methods of 
the Venezuelan government headed by 
President Castro. New York business 
men who own large commercial inter- 
ests in Venezuela and who are kept in- 
formed by their representatives in 
Caracas of the state of affairs, have 
within the last few days given to the 
writer facts long withheld. 

From those merchants it is learned 
that Castro is revising the constitution 
to suit his revolutionary policy. He 
called a congress together Feb. 20, 
whose members are all of his choosing. 

The rirst act was to pass, accordmg 
to his orders, an amendment to the con- 
stitution extending the term of office 
of the president from four years to six. 
This was done without any pretension 
of consulting the choice of the people. 
During the first week in March he ap- 
pointed as members of his cabinet 
seven men who have learned to subju- 
gate their will to his. 

Castro has been dictator ever since he 
drove President Andrade by force of 
arms from Venezuela's executive man- 
.sion, eighteen months ago. He has yet 
f) serve the remaining ye tr of Andrade's 
term, which does not expire until Feb; 
20. 1902. Then, according to his revision 
of the constitution, he will enjoy six 
years mure in office, making eight and 
one-half years altogether. 

Meanwhile the real president of Ven- 
ezuela is Andrade, who Is today in the 
i.'^Iand of Curacoa, which he has chosen 
as the starting point of a proposed ex- 

In Venezuela there is no such thing as 
capital punishment. Crime's penalties 
stop at imprisonment for ten years. But 
Gen. Acosta. friend of Andrade and 
enemy of Castro, who bad dared to take 
up arms against Castro, and was the 
head of the revolutionary party in the 
field, was put to death. 

A correspondent fur a weekly ^-ho re- 
cently returned from Venezuela tells 
how Acopta was captured, and in spite 
of the law against the form of punish- 
ment, was shot, by Castro's order, on 
Feb. 19. In Venezuela now, it is asserted, 
government dignitaries, the ustices of 
Ihe courts, local otTirials in the various 
cities and states, retain their places t>s

gether on the Mich- 
igan Central.

Crushed By Freight 


long only as they obey without question 
tlie orders of Castro. 

In the first month of his presidency, 
Castro called to his presence a number 
of wealthy rei»re«eptaiive merchants 
and bankers, artd inforpied them that 
they must contribute to the support of 
the government. According to his own 
estimate of the amount of their for- 
tunes, he fixed the sum which each 
should pay into the treasury at onee. 
The amounts ranged from $20,000 to 
$60,000. A few objected and straight- 
away found themselves conveyed to the 
rounda, the worst prison in Caracas. In 
this way Castro raised the funds for 
conducting the government until t!ie 
revenues of the war taixes began to 
come in. 

In December Castro annulled all the 
concessions of the various Oriniioco 
concerns — the Trading company, the 
Colonization company and the Ship- 
ping and Transportation company, all 
American concerns, with headquarters 
in New York. The reason he gave for 
this procedure was that the companies 
had not" carwed out the conditions 
named in their contracts. 

Previous to this he had annulled the 
concession of the asphalt company in 
the state of Bermudese, a concession 
which for ten years m- more had been 
yielding the country a large annual rev- 
enue. He then sold the asphalt prop- 
i erty, which had been purchased yeare 
before in fee simple from the govern- 
ment of Venezuela. The asphalt com- 
pany protested, and carried its case into 
the Venezuelan courts, where it was re- 
warded with an decision. Then 
the company brought its case to Wash- 
ington and placed it before the United 
States government. The state depart- 
ment Immediately sent instructions re- 
garding it 10 Minister Lo^jmis, in Car- 
acas. These instructi'^ns Loomis carried 
out to the letter. 

This precipitated the present trouble 
in Venezuela. Senor Augusto Pulldo, 
charge d'affaires of the Venezuelan gov- 
ernment legation at Washington, ex- 
amined the article with considerable 
attention, and he salii: "I believe this 
article to be gieutly exaggerated. 
Clpriano Caatro is not a dictator in any 
sense of the word. H<' won his office by 
force of arms, but h^ has obeyed the 
constitnution since hi;; rise to power." 

"Andrade is not the real president of 
Venezuela. Neither is Castro. The lat- 
ter lii only a provUi<>nal president. I 
do not know even if Svlll be elected 
to that office. 

"During the tfViub'Cd months when 
the whole country was in a state of 
siege, extraordinary' measures were 
necessary to preserve any semblance 
of order. If these things did occur, it 
was long ago and muh less harrowing 
than portrayed by your correspondent."' 
Gonzales Esteves, the consul general 
of Venezuela at this post, refused to 
discuss the contents of the article, say- 
ing there was no truth in it. 


Havana Newspaper Closed on Account of lUustra- 

tion Called "The Cuban Xalvary" Which 

Offended Governor General Wood. 

Havana, April 6. — The Discussion has 
been suppressed, by order of Governor 
General Wood, and its offices have been 
closed and sealed. This action was due 
to the publication in the Discussion yes- 
terday of an illustration having the title 
of "The Cuban Calvary," representing 
the Cuban public personified In a Cuban 
soldier being crucified between two 
thieves, Qen. Wood being represented as 
one thief and President McKinley as 
the other, both being labeled with their 
names. Senator Piatt was represented 
as a Roman soldier giving vinegar and 
gall in the form of the Piatt amendment, 
while public opinion, as Mary Magda- 
lene, was weeping at the foot of the 
Below was the following inscription: 
"Will destiny reserve for us a glorious 

The picture caused much unfavorable 
comment yesterday from the standpoint 
of decency. The editor of the paper, 
Senor Coranado, was arrested but was 
released on bail. It Is probable that no 
other action will be taken against the 
Discussion than suppressing its publica- 
tion for several days. 

Senor Capole, president of the Cuban 
constitutional convention, has visited 
Gen. Wood and told the latter that the 
convention, individually and as a body, 
regretted the publication of the carica- 
ture. He said the picture misrepresented 
the feelings of the Cubans, who held 
Gen. Wood and President McKinley in 
the greatest respect and were deeply 
grateful to them. 

On his solicitation Gen. Wood allowed 
the Discussion to continue publication, 
but the Judge of the correctional court 
will prefer charges, the character of 
which is to be determined later, against 
Editor Coranado. 


All Records In Trans- 
portation Broken By 
the Rhein. 

New York, April 6.— All records in Im- 
migrant transportation were broken by 
the North German Lloyd liner Rheln. The 
Rhein brought 2«& steerage passengers, 
which established a new record by several 
hundred in the number of immigrants that 
have been landed at this port by one ves- 

At the Immigration station, on Ellis 
Island, it was said that the' day had been 
one of the busiest experienced in the ser- 
vice in years. Besides the Rhein's pas- 
sengers there were 556 from the White 
Star liner Germanic, 840 from the steam- 
ship Karamania, and 36 from the Allan 
State liner, State of Nevada. 

Officials of the bureau said the immi- 
grants were, as a whole, a good lot, be- 
ing fine specimens ph>'sicaJly, and in other 
requirements being above the usual aver- 
age of persons that are landed on the

Report of Recovery of Gains- 
borough Portrait. 

London, April 6.— Inquiry by a repre- 
sentative of the Associated Press at 
the art establishment of Thomas Agnew 

& Sons, from which the Gainsborough 
portrait of the duchess of Devonshire 
was stolen in 1876, elicited the response 
that nothing wa* known by the firm of 
the reported recovery of the picture In 
Chicago. Stories of the discovery of 
the missing portrait have recurred at 
frequent intervals ever since the pic- 
ture was stolen. 

New York, April 6.— Robert Pinker- 
ton, one of the chiefs of the detective 
agency connected with the recovery of 
the stolen masterpiece, reached here "o- 
day from Chicago and discussing the 
London dispatch said: 

"There cannot be the slighest doubt 
about the recovery of the picture, and 
when C. Moreland Agnew reaches Lon- 
don and confers with the members of 
his house, he will no doubt fully con-

Detroit, April 6.— While lying at 
Wayne Junction early today, Michigan 
Central passenger train. No. 36, which 
left Chicago at 11:30 last night, was run 
into by a freight train which was fol- 
lowing it. 

The rear end of the last Pullman car 
of the passenger train was badly 
crushed by the freight locomotive. 
Three people were injured, as follows: 

Conrad Voigt, of New York, conduc- 
tor Pullman car, leg broken, head badly 
hurt; will recover. 

Louis Mendelssohn, of Detroit, pas- 
senger; head cut. 

J. N. Mackin, of Detroit, passenger; 
badly bruised. 

The property damage is not large. 

Sa i Condition of the Porto 


Worse Than When Under 
Spanish Rule. 


The Former Minister to 

Korea Has Died at 


Detroit, April 6.— John M. B. Sill, min- 
ister, resident and consul general for 
the United States to Korea, from 1893 
to '97, died at Grace hospital today. For 
a year or more — in fact since his return 
from the Orient, when his health was 
shattered— Mr. SlU has been failing and 
since Christmas has wasted rapidly 


Mr. SlU, who was born in Black Rock, 
N. Y., in 1831, was minister to Korea 
during the Chinese-Japanese war, and 
his legation was the refuge of many of 
the Korean court dignitaries after the 
sensational assassination of the queen 
of that kingdom. He occupied a promi- 
nent portion as an educator, having 
been superintendent of the Detroit 
schools and principal of the state school 
at Ypsllanti. He was the author of sev- 
eral works on grammar. 


Cincinnati, April 6.— A dispatch to the 
Enquirer from a correspondent at San 
Juan, Porto Rico, says: 

"I was here before the war with Spain 

and most of the time since, and must 
admit that, while sanitary and other re- 
forms have been worked out and other 
beneficlent reforms projected, unavoid- 
able disaster and inexperienced admin- 
istration have caused the material con- 
dition of the people to be worse now 
than under Spanish rule. In a number 
of districts the people are actually 
starving. There is no work, the plant- 
ers have no money to undertake culti- 
vation. The banks will not lend them 
a small amount. 

"The municipalities have no funds and 
have failed In attempts to borrow the 
necessary money to conduct affairs or 
undertake improvements. 

"The markets are paralyzed. The 
warehouses are full of tobacco. There 
is no sales for coffee. The people are 

denied citizenship, and are left like prN 
soners on the island to starve. Thes4 
things appeal to the peot)le more thafl 
Implanting schools and other reforms. 

"Utterly heartsick, the people gathel 
at the wharves, gaze out on the watel 
and beg of shipowners to take them 
anywhere. Thousands are going td 
Hawaii, Cuba, San Domingo, Ecuadol 
and other points. 

"The local press urges the governmenC 
to take action at once to stop the exo« 
dus. Emigration to Ecuador has been 
practically stopped, however, beoaus< 
of the alleged ill-treatment received by 
those who have sought refuge there. 

"As a result of the trip of the Portd 
Rico comml-sslon to Washington, ownerl 
have been allowed to place their own 
valuation on property, and the trou'bU 
has been otherwise modified, and les<

Sir Thomas Lipton Learns That the Lawson Boa! 

Has Every Important Novelty of 

the Shamrock IL 

London, April «.— When Sir Thomas 
Lipton recently said that h» was 
chiefll concerned about the Herreshoff 
boat and saw no reason to count seri- 
ously on the chances of the Crownln- 
shleld defender he was merely echoing 
the opinion, then generally held, of 
British yachtsmen. It seems now, 

novelt y In the Watson boat has beet 
duplicated in Mr. Lawson's. The lead 
of the keel is run inside on both yachti 
in order to secure strength and light* 
nes8 with less surface friction. Botlj 
masts consist of a single spar, with tM 
view of escaping weight and the weak*

By His Appointment as Pitts- 
burg Recorder. 

Pittsburg, April 6.— MaJ. A. M. Brown, F 
who is one of Pittsburg's foremost at- 
torneys, was somewhat surprised when 
told that the governor had appointed 

him recorder. He admitted that he had 
been solicited to take the position, but 
had not given It any consideration. He 
would give no definite idea as to when 
he will announce his decision to accept 
or reject the appointment, but it is 
thought he will wait. If possible, until 
the supreme court renders Its decision 
as to the legality of the new charter. 


Appointed In Pennsyl- 
vania Cities According 
to "Ripper" BiU. 

Harrisburg, Pa., April 6.— A. M. Brown 
and John R. Murphy were today ap- 
pointed recorders of Pittsburg and Al- 
legheny City, respectively, by Gover- 
nor Stone. This is in accordance with 
a recent act of the legislature known as 
the "Ripper" bill, abolishing the office 
of mayor in second class cities and giv- 
ing the governor power to appoint re- 
corders In their stead. The newly-ap- 
pointed officers win serve until 1902. 


On the Punishment of Provin- 
cial Officials. 

Berlin, April 6. — A dispatch to the Co-

day, April 4, says the Chinese plenipo-

ment of the guilty provincial officials 
to be demanded by the foreign minis- 
ters on account of the murder of 242 per- 
sons, missionaries and their wives and

Already Fixed. 

Cleveland, April 6.— The PlaindeaJer 
says: The price of non-Bessemer ore 
has been fixed without any action being 
taken by the Bessemer Ore association 
on that grade of ore. Sales of non- 
Bessemer ore are being made at $3 a 
ton, which is a cut of $1 a ton com- 
pared with last year. No large deals 
have been closed, but many small or- 
ders have been placed and the amount 
of business closed up to date is pretty 
close to 1,000,000 tons.

aged 60, a well known lawyer and former

today from paresis. 

Thomas W. Lawson may enter hia jracht Independence in the Clyde re» 
gatta to take place in English waters next June. The Shamrock II will be one

run against him in EInglish waters. 

however, that it is dawning on the ex- 
perts that the Lawson boat is worthy 
of more attention than was previously 
given to her. The reason for this 
change of opinion lies chiefiy in the re- 
markable resemblance of Mr. Lawson's 
yacht with the Shamrock II. Details 
seem to show that every important 


In Colombia Is Still Far 

From Ended at 


San Francisco. April 6.— The Chronicle 
says: Private advices received by the 
steamer City of Sydney from Panama 
allege that the revolution which began 
Oct 18, 1899, in Columbia is far from 
ended, and that the rebels are steadily 
gaining strength. 

Gen. Ulloa, at the head of the revolu- 
tionists, had a fierce battle about March 
1, In Caparrapl, state of Cundinamarca, 
In which the capital city of Bogota is 
situated. The government troops were 
defeated and 250 prisoners, 500 rifles and 
25 cases of ammunition were captured 
by the revolutionists. Gens. Neiro and 
Deigodlllo have captured Moniqulra.wlth 
250 government soldiers. Gens. Colmen- 
ares, Ulloa and Escobar, after a marked 
victory at Lapala aglnst 1200 govern- 
ment troops, hve taken positions in 
Pacho and San Cayetano, with 1500 

It is reported that the revolutionists 

minum is also used for the decks ol 
both boats. As it is impossible foi 
either designer to have plagiarized th4 
other, the fact that they have arrive^ 
at Identical conclusions in these lm« 
portant matters has suggested to Brit* 
ish yachtsmen that the designers ar« 
more nearly on the same plane than 

are preparing to move on Panama witij 
a force of 5000 men. 


Consul Has Not Arrived a(

Cincinnati, April 6.— A dispatch to th^ 
Enquirer from San Juan De Porto RicO| 

Minister Loomis has not arrived. Th< 
cabled dispatches state that he left La 
Guayra for San Juan on the auxiliary 
cruieer Scorpion, due yesterday morn-

will Join the squadron at Culebra. frona 
whence dally dispatch boats arrive at

some delay in the departure from La

whereabouts of Loomis. 

Avila Blanco, the Venezuelan consul 
here, says that President Castro oi 
Venezuela is unlikely to yield to th4 
demands of the United States, and 
Blanco expects that a naval demonstra-

With every evidence of emanating 
from an authentic source, a rumor was 
thrown on the winds today to the effect 
that Superior street may yet be paved 
with out resorting to a charter amend- 

As indicated by The Herald several 
days ago, the council's action in start- 
ing a petition for a charter amendment 
giving the aldermen power to order 
street improvements without petitions 
from the property owners, caused a 
feeling of apprehension and anxiety on 
the part of certain property Interests 
and the various paving material pro- 
moters. This stirred up considerable 
energy on the part of those endeavoring 
to secure petitions, and as a result 
there may be a petition submitted to 
the council within two or three weeks. 

It is claimed by one of the members 
of the council that this petition will be 
for sheet asphalt, with sandstone at 
avenue intt-rsections. 

Should this petition he submitted, the 
Council will probably call of the pro- 
posed charter amendment owing to the 
cost of holding the proposed special 
election. The main object of the reso- 
lution calling for the special charter 
amendment giving the council plenary 
power in ordering street improve- 
ments, was to get Superior street pav- 
ing down before the street becomes a 
total wreck. By paving immediately 
may thousand dollars can be saved in 
savins: the present cement foundation. 
If the present foundation should col- 
lap.»-t' under the strain of heavy tean.- 
ing. an entirely new foundation will 
have to be put in. 

It is said that if the council does call 
off the proposed charter election, it will 
insist on a charter amendment at the 
next regular ele<"tion for the purpose of 
giving the aldermen power to make 
street improvements, where such im- 
provements are absolutely necessaiy. 
but on which the property owners are 
unable to agree as to the kind of ma- 
terial to be used, or where the property 
owners refuse to petition. 

The paving of Michigan street with 
sandstone will besin in a very few 
weeks. Most of the stone is ready for 
shipment- at the Kettle River quarries 
im«i the work will be pushed *^rongh 
very rapidly.

Copper Boom In Northern 
Wisconsin Lands. 

Indications all point to there being one 
of the greatest booms in copper prop- 
erties In Northern Wisconsin that the 
jtate has ever seen. This activity will 
be centered priUvipally in Douglas 
county. Operators who were through 
the Ijooms on the Gogebic and Penokie 
iron ranges in the "SOs say that the de- 
velopments now being pushed, and 
those decided upon but kept quiet, wM 
be sufficient to send every acre of land 
upon the copper range in Douglas 
county to $50 or $10) per acre. People 
are much interested. 

All the available homestead land has 
been taken, and although the snv^w ha^ 
not yet disappeared, prospecting has al- 
ready begun. It is understood that 
plans for the 20-head stamp mill at the 
Chippewa mine have been accepted, and 
th.jt this company will begin the erec- 
tion of this mill at once. 

It is now an assured fact that the Cal- 
umet & Hecla people will expend be- 
tween $20«).l>00 and $:]00.000 at the Weyer- 
hauser mine between now and the first 
of next Noveml>er. 

The St. Croix Consolidated Copper 
mines, of We^t Superior, Wis., has just 
announced that it will expend between 
$50,000 and $100,000 in developing its 
properties, and that before the season 
closes at least two strong companies 

will l)e developing two of their twelve 
surface showings. The St. Croix Con- 
solidated is probably the strongest an«l 
Jay all odds the largest company upon 
the range. It owns in f(^ 21.000 acres of 
carefully selected lands upon the min- 
eral range, and on the.^e lands have 
twelve elegant surface showings of na- 
tive copper.

Council to Consider Limit 

Ordinance Monday 


The council commit ife on ordinances 
will hold a meetinsf on Monilay afteino<jn 
to consider the ordinance for preventing 
the spread of the saloon epidemic in the 
leKJtiniate business and residence dis- 
tricts. It has been learned that the brew- 
ing company representatives favored the 
plan of having th? council pass a resolu- 
tion Ttgulatlng the number of saloons, 
but are actively oposod to having an or- 
dinance rtKtriotlns tho numlier cf thirst- 
quenching boozorlvms. 

The resolution wa.« not very binding. It 
■was simply the sense of the present coun- 
cil that there should be no more saloon 
licenses gr;inted iMitil such a time as tlie 
ratio of thirst-quenchers should be one 
f'O'r everv 50i) population Instoad of one for 
every 32o. At anv tim» the council should 
see Ht It was «is:lv within their power to 
adopt another re.^olution .saying that it 
was the s»^nse of the boiiy that more sa- 
loon licenses should be granted. IP would 
not Wml any subsequent council, either. 

But with an ordinance, it is a different 
thing. In amending or revoking an or- 
dkianv.e regulating the number of saloons, 
it would be more difficult for th. brewing 
companies to muster sufficient strength 
in the council to have the restrictions re*- 
moved. , . . , 

It Is reportetl today that saloons backed 
by brewing companies are to replace the 
grocery stores of Sutton & McCabe, 5 
West Supeirior street, and the Anderson 
Grocery company, 29 East Superior 
street, after M ay 1.

Sheehy After Holmes. 

Joseph Sheehy claims that liii; arrest 
on the charge of using indecent lan- 
guage to a woodsman was caused by 
City Attorney Holmes, who ha.s it in for 
him and has for a number of years been 
pursuing him whenever he can get a 
( hanre. He says he was not at the city 
hall yesterday, and al»o that an attempt 
was made to force him into paying a 
cheok for $10.60, and he refu-.^ed. and in 
his indignation used some language that 
was taken advantage of. He told Holmes 
to put the check where he could not find 
it for two years, and says that he defies 
Mr Holmes to interfere with his busi- 
ness, and will be stlU at the old stand 
doing businp'3s when Mr. Holmes is eat- 
ing snowballs. He says there will be a 
warm one coming if he hears any more 
from Holmes.

Can Cubans Govern Them- 

One of the best known diplomatists 
recently declared that the Cubans are 
incapable of governing themselves, and 
that the United States must maintain 
its present control indefinitely, or else 
annex the l.<<land. There will be those 
who will dispute this, but there are 
none who dispute the well-established 
fact that Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is 
capable of contrpIUng- the common dis- 
eases of the st'omach. It is a remedy 
that is backed by fifty years of success. 
It is an ideal medicine for constipa- 
tion, a strength builder for those who 
are predisposed to lung troultles. and 
for nervousness It is of wonderful bene- 
fit. As an appetizer it is incompar- 
able. Those whose stomachs are out 
of order .should not fail to try a Ijottle. 

At a meeting of the directors of the 
Wendell P. Mosher com.pany. held at its 
ofTice. No. lOS Providence building, April

director and vice president was received 
and accepted, terminating his connec- 
tion with that corporatijn from April 5.

The Depopulation of India 

Through Famine and 


London. April 6— The depopulation of 
India through famine and cholera is as- 
suming alarming proportions. The latest 
advices from Simla .say the census re- 
turns of the central provinces show a 
decrease of over a million since 18«]. when 
under nromal condiiioii.s an increase of 
a million and a half might have been ex- 
pected. It is estimated that 5.000.000 have 
died in India since IS.% from causes di- 
rectly due to the famine. 

In Western India things are even worse. 
The OoocJeyp.:or state returns show a de- of 84,<J00 or 4.i per cent of the popula- 
tion, the state of Hhopaul shows a de- 
crease of 808,000, the district of Banda 
shows a decrease of 124.000 an so on. In 
Bombay City the populaticn has dimin- 
ished by .^O.iXtO. The localities which escaped 
the plague show a satisfactory though 
uncompen.satlng increase. For instance, 
at Madras, which has gained 8 i>er cent 
over 1S91.

Allan Liner Decks Swept By 
Big Seas. 

Greenock. April 6.— The Allan liner 
Buenos Ayrian, from Philadelphia, 
March 11. for Glasgow, about whose 
safety some apprehension was felt, has 
arrived here. She reports that she was 
fog-bound outside of Philadelphia, and 
remained anchored two days. Subse- 
quently the weather was very rough, 
and the shi^i was swept from stem to 
stern by heavy seas, which smashed her 
deckhouse and carried away a lifeboat. 
Her coal became exhausted and her fur- 
naces were fed with maize, cattle fit- 
tings, etc. There was never any fear 
felt by those on board regarding the 
safety of the ship.

Filled with a hilarity and j^yousness 
that was induced by a free niix-up with 
the How ins bowl. Jolin Bcoler. a West 
Duluth citizen, living on Main street, 
stalled out yesterday to celebrate the 
Eastertide. Not only did he nialte his 
presence well known about this part of 
the city, but he even went home and 
tried to hammer some of his joy into 
tiis wife. She resented the action of the 
head of the house and went before 
Justice .Stone with a complaint. Boolor 
was arrested last nipht on a warrant 
charging him with being drunlt and dis- 
orderly and beating his wife. He sobered 
up in the West Duluth police headquar- 
ters last night, and this morning was 
f-und guilty of doing all that he was 
charged up with. Justice Stone Im- 
posed a penalty of $10 and costs and re- 
quired peace bonds of the defendant, or 
gave him the alternative of thirty days 
in the county jail. At last accounts 
this morning Booler was drawing cuts 
with himself to see whether he should 
pay the fine or accept county board for a 

Tlie Senate club met last evening, but 
did not have the debate expected, as 
matters of importance came up to be

sold, and the owner expects to fit it up 
for another purpose. The club ^s fis^v-

The =kating season In West Duluth 
closed last evening with a large crowd 
at the West Duluth rink. Although the 
weather has been warm for .several days, 
the ice was in pretty good condition. 

The covered rink closed the season after 
a splendid run of business yill winter; 
in fact, better than has been Ixperienced 
in the rink business here in many sea- 
sons. One of the chit-f attractions this 
winter to keep up the crowds was the 
plan of having band musical every 
skating night. Music has its charms^, 
and the skaters appreciate it. It is ru-

witnessed at the office of Dr. Mitchell, 
nhere he heals the sick. "We have seen 
iren treat the ?ick by the laying on of 
hands, before, but never have we seen the 
dumb made to speak until we went to Mii- 
chell. an.l there before many people saw 
the doctor, with nothing but Jils hand<, re- 
store the voice of a woman who had been 
dumb for years. We also i-'aw him take 
an old pentleman 7S years old, who was as 
dtaf a» a poi^t. ai'.J in three minutes un- 
der It. Mitthell'p treatment he could hear 
the softest whisper. The next was a 
lady with her hand swollen to four times 
Its natural size, and in five minutes, un- 
der the application of Dr. Mitchell's hands 
the swelling disiipptared. and the lady 
could use it as weli as ever. An old lady 
who had two stiff shoulders and was 
very deaf came next, and it took the doc- 
tor but a ffW minutes to loosen her shoul- 
ders and restore her hearing, and when 
she found sht- could both hear and use her 
arm she bur.-t tears, and asked God 
to bless Dr. Mitchell. She stated she had 
no home but she would hereafter be able 
to earn a living. Her earnest appeal for 
the Divine bie.-sii.g- to rest upon Dr. Mit- 
chell touched the hearts of those in the 
office and quite a number of dollars ri^ht 
then and there found their way into the 
Old lady's pocket.

Mr. Laybourn Introduces 

Sharp Resolutions 

In the House. 

St. Paul. April 6— (Special to The Her- 
ald.)— In the house t<xlay Chairman Mal- 
lory moved tha: the report of the brib- 
ery investigating committee be tak'?n 
from the fable and adopted. The motion 
was carried with-out debate or contest of 
any sort. 

Mr. Laybourn Introduced the following 

Whereas, charges of bribeo' have been 
mad-:^ by certain members of this hocse 
in connection with the discussion and dis- 
position of iiouse file No-. 291, known a.s 
the Jacobson gro.=s earnings tax bill, that 
such eliarges have been published in 
press of the state and nation to the dis- 
credit and dishonor of this housje and th« 
state of Minnesota, and. 

Whereas, a committee o-f this house, 
composed of honorable and prominent 
nieuiters, after having carefully and 
paiuinakingly investigated such charjjes 
and all the evidence presented by the 
mcmbeis making such charges, and has 
found nothing reliable upon which to es- 
tabli-sh the bellaf that any such bri'oerv 
was ever practiced or attempted, there- 

Resolved, that this house votes its dis- 
appi^val of the charges and insinuations 
made in connection with house file N>. 
iai and censures 'n plain terms the con- 
duct of the representatives from Lrfic Qui 
Parle countv, Mr. Jacobson and the mem- 
btr from H.nnepin county, Mr. Wash- 
burn in making such false and scandalou.s 
charge's against honontble members of 
this body. 

Mr. AHf-n gave n>3tice of debate aod the 
resolution went over. 

The senate bill to reimburse owners of 
cattle killed because of tuberculosis was 
reported for Indefinite postponement, but 
Mr Plowman opposed suca action, ap- 
pi>aling for protection to the farmers "f 
the whole state. J. A. Peterson, who is 
the author of a similar measure not cov- 
ering the subject for the whole s'tate, 
argufcl in support of tne execution of the 
bill but the house supported the friends 
of the bill whicli was placetl on file for 
second reading. , ,, ., , 

The Russell Sage relief bill to make 
possible the collecticn on bonds issued by 
the now defunct town of Reeds Landing 
in Wabasha county, was taken from the 
table and placed on the calendar. 

Mr. Deming called up his Younger pa- 
role bill and read the opinion of the at- 
torney general on the bill. Mr. Smith of- 
fered an amendmeat substituting the 
state auditor for the chief justice fr« m 
the provisions of the bill. A call of the 
house was ordered. Mr. Dobbin spoke at 
length against the proposed amenc'.ment, 
which he denounced as clearly an at- 
tempt to "pack the jury" in view of the 
well known fact, that the state auillor is 
an earnest advocate cf pardon for the 
Yoiingers. ^ , 

Mr. Whit ford presented a further amend- 
ment requiring also the approval of I'l" 
judge of the district from which such con- 
victs were committed. 

The Whitford amendment was lost and 
on roll call the Smith amendment was lost 
bv a vote of 49 to a3. 

Mr. Kellv then m- ved the Indefinite post- 
ponement " of the bill. Mr. Roberts ai>- 
I)ealed to Christian sympathy against 
anv such action but Mr. Riley thought 
there should be .«ome sympathy for the 
victims of t(.e Youngers. 

Mr. Lavbourn demanded the previous 
ouestion and roll call resulted o3 to 50, 
finally killing the bill.

Then the senator hai) another bill intro-

Spring term will begin at the Business

Ifce entire morning was spent by the 
board of county commissioners, assisted 
by outside parties, in discusing some- 
what heatedly the matter of redistrict- 
ing the county to make room for two 
more commis.'-loners. At the conclusion 
of the argument at 12:30 o'clock it was 
decided to put the matter over until 
April 16, by which time everybody con- 
cerned will have had ample opportunity 
to become informed on tf-ie matter, and 
will therefcie be in a position to appear 
before the board and make arguments 
according to the frame of mind their in- 
formation leaves them in. 

The unpleasantness of yesterday after- 
noon, when Commissioner Kauppi and 
others were accused of trying to rail- 
road the matter through and get snap 
judgment on it, was reflected in t'.iis 
morning's di?cusslon. J. B. Cotton made 
the principal address in favor of imme- 
diate action, which he urged because 
he thought that the plan of deiay was 
founded on bushwhacking mettiods, as 
he expressed it, designed to give hostile 
parties time to tie the matter up with 

The other side cf it was taken by 
Commissioners Kugler and Patterson. 
O. H. Simonds. W. B. Phelps. Frank 
Crassweller, H. S. Mahon and others, 
and some of tliem expressed suspicion 
because of the evident haste 1 1 get the 
matter settled before people had had 
time to think it over or become informed 
upon it. 

Commissioner Kugler opened the ball, 
after the meeting had been thrown open 
for discussion, by stating that he wanted 
to vote as the people wished, so he 
wanted to hear the voice of the aforesaid 
people. He did not want the matter 
railroaded through. He explained that 
the proposition presented by the peti- 
tions on file was for two more range 
districts, giving the Mesaba range two 
comissioners and the Vermilion range 
one, and leaving all the other districts 

The bill was read, and then J. B. Cot- 
ton was called on. He said that he was 
there as a citizen and not In the interests 
of any iron corporation that he must 
plead guilty of being connected with. 
He gave a number of reasons why the 
new commissioner? were needed. He 
said the ranges had never had their dues 
in the matter of reprsentation on county 
matters, and the bill is designed to give 
them that justice. In opening. Commis- 
sioner Kugler had said that a danger in 
giving the ranges too much representa- 
ti m would be that they would represent 
the iron interests and defeat attempts 
to tiroperly tax the iron interests. In 
relation to this Mr. Cott. n said that the 
county board of equalization would 
have a majority of tv.-o, counting the 
c >unty auditor, and even if it did not 
do the right thing, the state board of 
equalization has the power to right any 
injustice. At the same time, it is to 
the interests of the Iron companies to 
"tote fair" in the matter, because they 
exist only by suffer;' nee of the people, 
and they are anxious to pay their just 
proportion of the publicexpense. 

Mr. Cotton said that he was not in 
favor of county division, and he admit- 
l"d that in his campaign against it on 
the range he promised some dissatisfied 
peoplt that he would do A-hat he could 
t-i see that more represpntatio-i wa3 
secured on the county boirJ for the 
Mesal a range. He said that it was un- 
true that more commissioners would 
mean more expense, because two more 
good men could help economize. He de- 
sired to make no threats, but county di- 
vision will be demanded if this relief n 
throttled i-y the people of Duluth. 

In reference to the propo-sed farmers' 
district, he said that would only have 
2500 population, and that would not be a 
fair apportionment. He said that if the 
matter was held up it would be only be- 
cause an attempt was being made to 
block it long enough to permit injunc- 
tion suits to tie it up. He thought tha; 
no Interests would be harmed if the 
legal test is made after the board acts 
and gives the Mesaba range the justice 

Frank Crassweller asked if the law 
required that the matter be acted upon 
the day the petitions were filed. M.-. 
Cotton said that it did not. and that it 
allowed sixty days for considerntlon. 

H. S. Mahon asked if it required 
seven districts. Mr. Cotton replied that 
with the petitions in asking for seven it 
does require that number. Mr. Mahon 
a^^ked what if another petition asking 
for six should be in. Mr. Cotton thought 
the one asking seven would he ahead 
and would have to he acted upon fi-^t. 

Mr. Mahon said he did not see why 
Mr. Cotton should construe It as un- 
friendly because some of them wanted 
the matter he!d over long enough to in- 
form them-^elves on it. Mr. Cotton t.ald 
the only thing was the fear the litiga- 
tion would tie the matter up for a long 
lime, and if they had an a-ssuran-r that 
that would not be done, he did not care 
If the whole sixty days was taken. 

Judge Carey suggested that tnere 
were others that would like to bo heard. 
It was a new question to most of t'ne 
people of Duluth. and they did not war« 
to have the matter acted uptwi until they 
had had a chance to look into It a litt'c 
and know something about it. If the 
request Is reasonable there will be no 
opposition to it of any kind. 

O. H. Simonds said he never h^ard a 
di.jinterested citizen p!av the part of a 
paid attorney better than Mr. Cotton 
had. He thought Mr. Cotton having 
been at the bottom of the mitter. kn^w 
all there was to know about it. while the 
people know little or nothing, and he 
believed that the people should he 
given a show. He said that the liill on 
file in the auditor's ofl[lce since yester- 
day was the only one in Duluth. and 
nobody had read it or knew wa? 
in it. He thought the ranges were en- 
titled to relief, and probably to thi.s re- 
lief, but peojjle wanted to know v>-hai It 
was before they endorsed it. 

As to Mr. Cotton's statement that the 
Mesaba range will grow, he was sur- 
prised to hear this, because a little while 
ago certain interests were trj-ing hard to 
show that the ore supply there was 
about to peter out. and the reason the 
roads were making high freight charges 
was that they had to do it to come out 
even in view of the short life of their 

Incidentally referring to the matter 
of taxes, he said he understood that the 
Mountain Iron mine was originally 
stocked at $1,000,000. Under the present 
value of its stock, as expressed by its 
convertibility Into Consolidated stock, 
that mine is worth $7,000,000 or $8.000.0<30. 
It is being assessed at about $600,000 at 
the outside. He wished someone would 
assess his property at that basis. 

Commissioner Kugler wanted to know 
if Mr. Cotton objected to putting tho 
matter over for two weeks. Mr. Cotton 
said he asked for no snap judgment. If 
the matter was given fair, decent treat- 
ment he was not opposed to their taking 
all the time they wanted. 

Commissioner Patterson said he was 
in favor of the matter, but he would not

Commissioner Kauppi hotly answered 
that his measure yesterday was only to 
have the committee report on the peti- 
tions, as to whether they conformed to 
the law. Nothing was said about action 
on them. 

Commissioner Kugler said that sound- 
ed very nicely on its face, but there was 
a current there yesterday that would 
have put the matter through imme- 
diately if the committee had reported 

The argument continued for some time 
longer. Mr Cotton said he thought the 
proper time to test the law was after it 
had gone into effect, and W. B. Phelps 
said that was hanging c prisoner and 
trying him afterwards. 

Finally an agreement was reached, and 
the matter will come up again April 16.

A. B. Wolvin returned yesterday 
afternoon from ris Eastern trip of

just before coming back here. Mr. Wol- 
vin said this morning that there was 
nothing more to say with reference to 
his plans. "They have been pretty 
well advertised in the papers already," 
he said. Mr. Wolvin is confident that 
his plans will go through and that the 
Canadian authorities will give them the 
final approval that is necessary. 

With reference to the story that was 
sent out from Buffalo to the effect that 
Connors had stolen a march on the 
original projectors and jumped In with 
his proposition before they had a 
chance to, Mr. Wolvin said that the 
statement was incorrect. Mr. Con-

No Advance. 

The rumor that coal prices are al)Out to 
advance is denied a; the local co.a.1 offices.

opening or shortly after the opening of 
navigation, the prices of hard coel^arop 
and it is exi>ected that the same thing wHl 
take place this year. On the other hand no 
reduction in soft coal prices is looked for, 
for the reason that bituminous coal prices 
are just alX'Ut the same as they were last 
summer when the boats were bringing up 
large quantities of the commodity. There 
have been some slight changes in price 
on some of the different grades of soft 
coal, however. There is said to be only one 
factor that might have a tendency to 
force hard c<:)al prices to hold at the high 
figure now asked, and that is the possl- 
blllty that the engineers' strike will not 
be settled bv May 1 and coal will not com- 
mence to come up the lake at that date.

to get some of the first issue of the Treasury Stock of the 

St. Croix Consolidated Coppor Mines 


A Great Copp or Stock F 

Parry Sound Copper Mining Co. 

REWEMBER we own 21,000 acres in fee and have 4,000 acres under contract, and in this 
tract we have 12 propositions of 1,000 acres each and 9,000 acres on which to find as many more. 
The surface showings of any one of these locations are as good as the surface showings of eighty 
per cent of the paying mines opened up on Keweenaw Point. 

WHY figure it up for yourself— the surface conditions are such that eighty per cent of these 
lands are valuable for farming purposes, and if this tract of 15,000 acres were sold today-for 
farm lands— not taking Into consideration any mineral poMibllltles whatever, they would net 
20 cents per share on the entire capital stock; at $6d.oo per acre or one-quarter of what such 
lands sell for on Keweenaw Point, the stock of this Company would be worth 100 cents on the 
dollar. Isn't this a conservative business proposition ? 

Did you ever have stock in such a Company offered you at such a figure ? 

Remember on next Tuesday morning, April 9. this stock will be 20 cents per share, 
and you can't buy a share lor less than that price. 

Send in your orders before it is too late.

Vaccination Restriction Is 

Finally Taken From 

School Children. 


Attend If 
Have Not Been 


Teachers and Principals 

Selected For Next 


"Tnvaccfnated children may become 
iraplls in the public schools from now 
on, the embargo having been removed 
after having been in effect for some 
time. Beginning Monday morning, when 
the schools open after the spring vaca- 
tion, children from every part of the 
city may attend, regardless of vaccim- 
tlon. providing they have not been ex- 
posed to smallpox. This announcement 
was made at last night's meeting of the 
heard of education, and was confirmed 
by Dr. Robinson, the health commis- 
sioner, who said that the snvallp<>x situ- 
ation has improved to such an extent 
that he believes it to bo safe to remove 
the embargo. , ^ 

The result will be ttiat several hun- 
dreds of chiMren who have been kept 
out of the schfuil because of anti-vac- 
cination prejudices will return to school. 
Many of them have been out since early 
last fall, when the vaccination embargo 
went into eff et t. 

T»ie committee on buildings reported 
that it had made a careful investigation 
of the Endlon school in regard to certain 
rumors that the condition of the building 
Is responsible in some measure for the 
epidemic of diphtheria that has been 
prevalent in the Fast End during the 
winter. The buiiaing was found to be in 
excellent condition, both plumbing and 
ventilation being all that could be aslted. 
The bufldinsr has been thoroughly fumi- 
gated, and the committee reported that 
there is no foundation for any fears re- 

p»rding it. . . » ^. 

The committee on schools and teachers 
reported the list of principals and teacn- 
ers for the c-3ming school year, and rec- 
ommended an increase in the salaries of 
practically all of the principals of $5 per 
month over that paid last year, and 
about $2.50 p«r month for most of the 

This proposition aroused some discus- 
sl-.n. Dr. C. L. Codding protested 
against it on the ground that the dis- 
trict could not afford It at this time. He 
also said that the action was too im- 
portant to be acted upon at a meeting 
when all of the directors were not pres- 
ent. The committee's recommendations 

were adopted, however, only Directors 
Codding and L.eTourneau voting in the 
negative. Tlie raise will increase the 
salary budget about $6000 a year. 

The board authorized tJhe employment 
of a teacher for the commercial depart- 
ment at a salary of $70 per month. 
Mi'^s Lucy E. Kellar was appointed su- 
pervisor of penmanship, and an assistant 
will be employed in the manual traming

Joseph Goldstein Goes 

to the Stillwater 


Shackled hand and foot, Joseph Oald- 
stein. moral degenerate, departed for 
Stillwater this morning under the guard 
of two deputy sheriffs, to serve a 32-year 
sentence in the penitentiary. He goes in 
at the age of 26; tie will be 58 when he 
gets out. George Rhodes, who pleaded 
guilty to larceny in the second degree, 
sat opposite the would-be murderer, 
smoking a cigar. Goldstein smokes 
cigarettes incessantly and has done so 
for years. He has grown a mustache 
since his confinement, is a good deal 
thinner than when he shot Deputy 
Sheriff Magic and made his wild break 
for liberty, but shows no remorse in his 
countenance, and . sat in the smoking 
car raising his manacled hands to his 
lips and drawing deep breaths of tQe 
cigarette. He was thinking of something 
far from the present, however, and 
thinking deeply, for when asked by a 
Herald reporter if he had anything to 
say, he started, looked bewildered for a 
moment, smiled and stiook his head and 
went on inhaling his cigarette and look- 
ing inti the distance. 

Deputy Sheriff Hare said that they 
did not expect any trouble from Gold- 
stein, but they were going to take no 
chances with him. Goldstein seemed 
absolutely Indifferent to the many 
curious glances ttiat were bestowed upon 
him. but Rhodes rose to the occasion and 
took in his full share of them. The party 
left on the Northern Pacific at 9 o'clock 
this morning, but there were compara- 
tively few bystanders, many arriving 
after the train had departed.

Men Planning a Fine 


An important event of the coming 
week Mill be the first annual banquet of 
the University of Michigan Alumni as- 
sociation of Duluth and Superior, to be 
held at the Spalding Thursday evening. 
The members are extremely gratified at 
the prospect of having, as the guest of 
honor. Professor Angell of the univer- 
sity President Angell has been at the 
head of this institution for upwards c' 
thirty years, and has, during the same 
time" as an auth.^rity upon international 
law and a trained and skdlful diplomat, 
served the government in numerou.- 
delicate and important matters, especi- 
ally as minister to China and later to 
Turkey He has an ardent admirer In 
every one of the thousands who have 
received their degrees from his hand,

preciate very highly the honor con-

The production of "The Milk White 
Flag" at the Lyceum last evening was 
not up to what had been proir.ised by 
the management of the company. With- 
out Little Chip it would have been a flat 
failure. That diminutive and very 
nimble little chap is a wonder. He has 
a dancing specialty that ought to make 
his fortune, and would seem to be al- 
most impossible to limit, and it is ex- 
crutiatingly funny. Throughout the 
piece his appearance was signal for 
laughter to begin, and it continued so 
long as he was in evidence. The Fan- 
chonetti Sisters did some very clever 
French dancing. Miss Mary Marble, 
who is featured on the bill, is a very or- 
dinary soubrette, and does nothing that 
i?hould entitle her to have her name 
appear in any more prominent type than 
any other person in the cast. The male 
members of the cast were fairly good. 
The production generally is very ordi- 
nary although the farce contains oppor- 
tunities for some work in the hands of 
clever people.

Pyramid Pile Cure Cures 
Them So They Stay Cured. 

At least one-fourth of all mankind 
are afflicted to a. greater or less degree 

with piles. ^ ' , ^ ^ 

Very often the disease is of irregular 
recurrence. Maybe the trouble comes 
on!v once or twice a year. Even s.i. It 
unfits a man for business while it lasts. 
Stems like a little thing, but it pro- 
duces more bad feelings than even ser- 
ious sickness would. In severe cases 
tfiere is no comfort atfainable. Various 
salves and ointments afford temporary 
relief but in a few minutes the pain 
returns. Each attack is a little bit 
worse than the last one. Itching is fol- 
lowed by bleeding and protrusion. Fis- 
tula follows— surgical treatment— death 
no-'sibly. And all this can be avoided. 

The discovery of Pyramid Pile Cure 
has made suffering unnecessary, even 
fojli* By its use relief is instantane- 
ous ^ It soothes the inflamed parts, 
heais the broken membranes, reducing 
the swelling and brings comfort at once. 

The cure is permanent and the trouble 
will not return unless new conditions 
arise which produce an entirely new- 
case This, of course, cannct be helped, 
but if you will use Pyramid Cure im- 
mediately on Che appearance of the first 
symptom, the trouble will vanish. 

Druggists sell and recommend Pyra- 
mid Pile Cure. There may be some who 
do not have it. in which case you can

Spring Ailments 

Such as Pimples, Boils, Eczema, and other eruptions; Loss of Appetite, 
Bilious Turns, Fits of Indigestion and Headache, That Tired Feeling 
and General Lassitude, proceed from a vitiated condition of the blood, 
which is common in the Spring, and effects all the organs and tissues. It is 
a condition in which the blood circulates an accumulation of waste matters 
which litter the system and clog its processes. 

You have one or more of these Spring Ailments yourself, or you are one 
of the rare exceptions ro the rule. 

It is at least a fair assumption that you, like most people, need to purify 
your blood this Spring. 

Now, what will you take ?— what may do the work, or what will do it ? 

Hood's Sarsaparilla and Pills will do it. 

This statement is verified by the experience of thousands annually. 

These preparations combine the most potent alterative or blood purify- 
ing, diuretic or kidney stimulating, cathartic or liver, stomach and bowel 
cleansing, and tonic or strength-giving, substances, carefully selected and 
prepared by fully educated and skillful pharmacists. The combination of 

Hood's Sarsaparilla 

and Pills 

Fulfills, as physicians say, all the indications of Spring Ailments— that is; 
meets all their requirements— purifying the blood and so acting on the 
organs of digestion and secretion as to make the effects on the blood per- 
manent, and restore healthy functional activity to the whole system. 

Hood's Sarsaparilla and Pills make the Spring Medicine par excellence. 
Have the whole family begin to take them TODAY.

The Deserving Charitable 

Institutions of the 


Charity Given Them 

Will Not Be Mis- 


Work Open to Public 

Inspection at Any 



The recent agitation over the so-called 
"Sacrea Refugo"' as conducted by the 
Bakers, has called attention to the deserv- 
tng charitable institutions of this city, 
those which are not averse to having 
their work examined minutely and at any 
time, and which are carrying on a great 
work for the poor and needy of Duluih. 
It Is these to whcm such chalrty as the 
people can give should -o. 

The hosfiitals are too well known to re- 
cjulre much comment. St. Marys, a: the 
corner of Fifth avenue east and Third 
street is one of the be.««t equiinxHl in the 
West and does an immense amount of 
work each vcar. It is a very energetic in- 
ptiiuticn and i.-5 practically self supporting, 
the years when there is not much sick- 
ness offsetting those of e<ildemlcs. Any 
one can purchase a six months ticket 
for K or a years ticket fur H'. entitling 
him to treatment, mfdicines and board for period, providing he is rendered v.n- 
able to work l>y sickness or aovident dur- 
ing that pt-rlod. Of the large number of 
tlcket.o sold a comparatively small num- 
ber of patients result and these seldom 
»tav for the full time of their ilcket. 

Tlie hospital Is to some extent assisted 
bv private donations, and thus the sis- 
ters are enalded to treat ail deserving 
cases free if necessary. 

St. Lukes hospiral. at the corner of 
Second avenue east and Fourth street. 
originated during an f pidemic. and for 
eighteen years bn<5 ministered to the needs 
of tht^ city, during which time It has been 
Improved" and enlarged. It charges those 
who are able to pay. but the charges cov- 
er only the cost of maintenance, paying 
nothing on the oo-iginal cost of the build- 
ing, and it can really be called a charitable 
Institution. Over 5*^ days of charity work 

at a dollar per day Is about the average 
amount that it does. St. Lukes hospital 
is a public benefactor in another way. as 
it trains young women for professional 
nursing, thus furnishing skilled attendance 
to the sick. The foundation for a new 
hospital has been laid at the corner uf 
Ninth avenue east and First street and 
St. Luke s husspilui will soon be the equal 
■jt any west of Chicago. The building will 
Ije fire proof and thoroughly iii>-to-date in 
every respect. The iiospltai is not run to 
make mcjiey and no manager has received 
any pecuniary remuneration from it 
whatever. It Is governed by a board T)f 
nine members and is under the espionage 
of :he Episcopal church of this ctty. 

The Woman's hospital, located at lU'J 
East First street is, as its name indi- 
cates, a hospital lor women of all classes. 
It is se^f -supporting and governed by a 
board of managers, ciiarging those who 
are able to pay and treating the indigent 
free. The future of this institution is 
verv unset il«d at thv prcisent time, as the 
buii'ling is much too small for the nee*is 
of the hospital, and there Is not enou^n 
room for the neeiUnl number of nurse'. 
A location for a new institution has nit 
ytt btH-n decidt<l upon and nochlng is 
definitely known as to its future heme. 

Tho two Bethels, one located In the 
midst of the saloon lnfeste«d j)art of Lake 
averue, and the other on the "Bowery," 
have done an amount of good that cannot 
be readily e^tlmatM. They have, by the 
low price at which they serve meals, 
kept many a m;in from begging or steiil- 
ing and a.s thev never turn a deserving 
case away— perhapE starvation^ Coni- 
motllous fre reading rooms are furnished 
at both places and Ijaths at the Lake ave- 
nuo BetrK!>l can be secured at a reason- 
able cost. Gospel services are hold e^uh 
evening, and many men are kept from 
losing their money In the dtvee. At pies- 
ent the two Institutions are serving about 
llffi meals daily, to all sorts and classes 
of men at the average price of 12 cents 
per mtal. 

The Children*? Honne is located at li"22 
Eiasi Superior street. Until recently it 
went under the name "Women's and Chil- 
dren's Home." but it has been changeti 
and Is now exci'rtsively far children." 
About lifty-five lltHe ones are there at 
the present time under the charge of Mrs. 
Green, thiei -matron, and in most cases 
thev are chargefl $« a month, for their 
support, but almost ?3<>0 worth of charity 
work is done wich year. The property is 
free from incumberancei. but on account 
of the crowded condition of the- h'ome the 
managers t xpert to build another in the 
near future, and sell the one which the 
home now occupies. The board owns 
four lets at the corner of Fftth avenue 
east and Fifth street, but may select a 
site at Lake«idf» or Woodland. But few 
f>ri>hans are in the home, most of the chil- 
dren having at, least one parent living, 
who in most cases pro\Mdes for the child's 
suptwrt. The home is managed by a so- 
ciety of Duluth women. 

The St. Anne's home and the St. John's 
orphange in West Duluth have been re- 
cently consolidate*!, and both the Instl- 
tutli'hs now occupy the old quarters of 
the St. Mary's hospital. They are under 
th« charge of th< Benedictine Sisters 
and are for old people and fcr children 
above the age of 3 years, there being al- 
most seventy little ones rare<1 for last 
voar. Their work Is to a great extent on 
the same order as the Children's Home.

Beethoven's First Symphony 
at Unitarian Church. 

A fine musical program will be given 
at the Easter vesper service at the Uni- 
tarian church. Mr. Flaaten's orchestra 
will give three movements from Beet- 
hoven's symphony in C Maior. The fol- 
lowing tiynopsis is printed for the bene- 
fit of those of our readers who may 
wish to attend the service: 

The symphony opens with a very 
shorj. introduction, adagio molto. This 
introductory movement was something 
of an experiment at the time it was 
made. The composition professes to be 
in the key of C, and yet it begins with 
a discord In'T", and in the third bar Vb in 
the key of G. 

The adagio of the Introduction is fol- 
lowed by the allegro con brio. The lead- 
ing theme is three four-bar phrases, in 
the 6t;Tngs, protracted by two bars of 
wind. The second subject in the domi- 
nant is very melodious and agreeable. 
A very effective and original passage 
arises out of this theme; where the bass 
had a portion of the subject in the 
minor, with a separate meU)dy above i'. 
in octaves. The first part of the allegro 
ends with a short coda, containing a 
new phase and a passage for the wind 
alone. The first part is then repeated 
and "worked out." 

The second movement, andante, can- 
tabile moto, is probably the best known 
part of the symphony. This movement 
is written in the key of F Major. 

The fourth movement, the flnale, be- 
gins with an adagio in six bars in length 
which leads up to the first theme. The 
second subject is introduced by a pretty 
figure in the first violins, and accom- 
panied by a moving bass. The coda is 
of considerable length. 

This symphony was first given in 
1800, when Beethoven was 30 yean> old. 
The Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung. 
describing a performance at Vienna in 
1805. calls it a "glorious production, 
showing extraordinary wealth of lovely 
ideas, ii?ed with perfect connection or- 
der and lucidity." 

The matter of redistrictlng the county 
came up at yesterday afternoon's meeting 
of the county boards and it led to rather 
a warm dispute in which Commisslciner 
Kauppi tried toi get the matter up again 
this morning and settled quickly, while 
Commissioner Kugler strongly objected 
because it seemed an attempt to railroad 
the project through without due consid- 

The matter was precipitated by Commis- 
sioner Kauppl's resolution directing tho 
coanmittee to which the petitions had been 
submitted to report at \% o'clock this morn- 
ing. The petitions, .signed by over 4000 
voters, had been flled during the afternoon, 
and referred to a committee consisting or 
Commissioners Kauppi, Kugler and Pat- 
terson for a report as to the genuineness 
of the signatures and the regularity of the 
affidavits of those who collected them. 

Commissioner Kauppl's resolution 
brought Comm.issioner Kugler to his feet 
with a strenuous objection against rail- 
roading the resolution through without 
giving the people a chance to be heard. 
He said he had talked with a number of 
business men, and they had all said to

He would like to have the opinion of 
such bodies as the Civic Federation. He 
said if tho lK)ard b^ the county's inter- 
ests at heart it woahl take time to get 
some ideas on the wlb.iect. 

Commissioner Mqqti in ,.said the other 
members had the 4o>Jnt*'s Interests at 
heart as well as Cfcnimfcaloner Kugler, 
and Mr. Kugler said no: to railroad the 
thing through, then. 

Oommlissioner Kttgler -moved to ad- 
journ, and when that was lost he moved to 
lay the resc-hitlon on the table, which mo- 
tion was also lost. Then Mr. Kugler left 
the room In disgust, saying thai the com- 
missioners could railroa.l it through with- 
out him as well as with him. 

Then Commissioner I';i.tterson moved to 
adjourn, and tho motif ii was parried. J. B. 
Richards' bill was referred to the commit- 
tee on claims and accmmts for a report. 

Chairman Morcom Introduced a resolu- 
tion on the system of purchasing supplies 
for the poor, providf^j; tb^t the poor com- 
mittee shall approve requisitions of the 
overseer of the ijoor, that the committee 
make monthly report.^ of supplies aqd 
orders issued, that a sf-ml-annual report 
of the average numl[>er of Inmates of the 
poor house and the cost of maintenance 
per capita and a yearl> re^Kjrt as to sup- 
plies, etc.. on hand be made, and that a 
$10(X) bond be required of the overseer. 

Mr. Kugler objected to the resolution be- 
cause It was too long, and wanted Its 
provisions voted on separately. He said 
that a resolirtlon rtequirlng a bond from 
the overseer was unnecessary, as the law 
required It anyway. He said he had tried 
to control the ejjpenses of the poor farm 
but had not received help from the other 

Commissioner Kauppi said that there 
were no protects on record from Mr. Kug- 
ler, and that he had signed all the bills 
with the others. In the war of words 
between the two that lollowed the grand 
jury's reflectlcns on <ounty matters came 
up. and Mr. Kauppi look occasion to 
say it was to bring him Into the 
matter when he was not a member of the 
poor farm committee. 

Commissioner Patterson filled the breach 
bv making a point of order, and the com- 
missioners, breathing hard, adjourned to 
this morning.

Effort to Get Action on Cor-

Lansing, Mich., April C— In the house, 
the controversy over a bill providing that 
all county officers shall be paid stated sal- 
aries, instead of fees, ended in It being 

amended so as to be worthless. A bill 
amending the garnl.'«hment law passed the 
committee of the whole in such shape as 
to exempt from garnishment all wages of 
heads of families up to $S per week, and 70 
per cent of wages between $8 and 130 per 

Friends of the bills provided an adval- 
orem tax for the property of rai!ro4ids, 
telegraph and telephone and expre^js com- 
panies trle<l to secure the adoption of a 
resolution ordering th;e railroad commit- 
tee to report forthwith all taxation bills 
In Its possession, so that action can be 
had on them at once, the theory being that 
the committee Is trying to kill them by 
delay. The committee won by a narrow 
margin. The temper of the minority, how- 
ever. Insures an early report. There is 
little doubt that an advalorem law will be

G-racevllle, Minn., April 6.— Twenty-two 
days ago John R. Llndqulst, a farmer who 
Imagines someone is trying to kill him, left 
his home during a violent blizzard. Al- 
though a search was kept up for several

was frozen to death. 

Yesterday when Eldmund Colwell, of

his feet and lower limbs frozen. Lindquist

Gen. Corbin Tried to Belittle 
Funston's Exploit. 

Wichrtta, Kan., April 6.— The Eagle 
publishes an extended interview with 
Congres-sman Chester I. Long of Kansas 
relative to the appointment of Frederic 
Funston to a brigadier generalship in 
the regular army. Mr. Long has veri- 
fied the interview for the Associated 

"When I read of Funston's heroic 
deed," said Mr. Long, "I went straight 
to (Jen. Corbin's office and said: 

•' 'Well, general, you see what Funs- 
ton has done?' 

" 'Yes, I have seen it,' replied Gen. 
Corbin, not too plea.santly. 

" 'Well,' I said, 'don't you think that 
you ought to make Funston a brigadier 
generaf in the regular army?' 

" 'No,' said Gen. Corbin, "he has done 
nothing to warrant that.' 

" "But,' I insisted, 'it seems to me 
that he has done a very daring thing: 
that he has almost concluded the war.' 
•■ 'Mr. Long,' said Corbin, 'I am mak- 
ing lieutenants of better stuff than 
Funston every day. Funston is a boss 
scout— that's all.' 

" 'We want him made a brigadier 
general,' I insisted. 

" 'Mr. Long,' said Gen. Corbin. 'the 
army has become a great school; we 
want teachers for brigadier generals; 
we want men who can teach and not 
those who should be taug-ht.' 

" 'But the president may want to ap- 
point him,' I aaid. 

" 'The president can do so, of course,' 
said Gen. Corbin. 

"But it was pljfln tqjjje seen," added 
iMr. Long, "that 'the president would 
never do it on the rec»|nmendation of 
Gen. Corbin."

series of lectures, illustrated, at the First 

Methodist church, is being anticipated 
with great interest by the women of 
Duluth. When Mrs. Rorer was here last 
year the character of her work was not 
very well known, and the attendance 
was not as large as the lectures de- 
served. Since then a great many of 
the women have come to a realization 
of what they missed, and the attendance 
tiis year promises to be very much 
larger. Mrs. Rorer demonstrates the 
work of which she talks before the aud- 
ience: in other words, she practices 
what she preaches or lectures by the 
object lesson plan. Her lectures, too, 
aside from Iwieir value, are very enter- 
taining, for she .is a very bright and 
witty woman, with a fund of sarcasm 
that she uses to good advantage and an 
easy flow of language that is always 
ready for every emergency. Besides 
being conceded to be the finest of cooks, 
Mrs. Rorer was agreed t«^ be a very 
charming woman by those who heard 
tier when here last.

When True Natural Sleep 

Actual changes take place In the little 
corpuscles of the blood, and these 
changes are brought about by changes 
in our habits. For Instance, the coffee 
habit is .said to produce a thickened con- 
dition of the blood, that is. under the 
microscope the little round corpuscles 
s*iow apparent fibres, an unnatural con- 
dition, which makes trouble with the 
heart in case of coffee poisoning. It 
also affects the complexion, frequently 
bringing on heart in some case.*, 
and stomach and bowel troubles are 
common with coffee drinkers. 

"Coffee treated me very badly Indeed. 
I got so I could not have a good night's 
rest, and Ciad not for five years. My eyes 
and complexidn were duller than my 
mother's, who was also a great coffee 

"Physicians told me I h<id acute kidney 
and bladder trouble. I was nervous al- 
most to the verge of hysteria, and my 
memory failed me. I had grown so thin 
I was little more than a shadow, and 
l>eople were continually asking me Cnow 
much younger my husband was than 
myself. (So comforting to a woman, you 
know.) In truth he is five yeais my 

"Well, as a forlorn hope I left off coffee 
and took up Postum Food Coffee about 
a year ago. I soon became so sleepy that 
I could scarcely stay awake long enough 
to take care of my baby. I did not rea- 
lize that I was sleeping naturally and 
making up for lost time. Finally I got 
pretty well 'slept up.' the 
dl.sappeared and I felt a decided im- 
provement in health. In three or four 
weeks I was quite well and only needed 
to regain my tiesh and complexion. I 
waited very patiently for an improve- 
ment in these conditions, but it was 
about five months before I was reward- 
ed, then an almost instantaneous change 
took place, and my complexion became 
clear and rosy. I gained In weight 
quickly, and friends and neighbors com- 
mented on the remarkable change. 

"I have been constantly growing bet- 
ter and now am feeling in better condi- 
tion than ever before in my life, and I 
can surely say that I owe it all to leav- 
ing off coffee and using Postum Food 

"My 16-year-old sister, like myself. 
drank coffee from a child. For the last 
four years she was able to go to school 
only a part of the time, and the doctor 
said she should not study at all. I in- 
duced her to quit coffee, and now her 
bright eyes and fresh, fair complexion 
show the result." 

It will be noticed that It took some 
months before this woman secured the 
result she wanted in the matter of com- 
plexion and flesh. The change from 
coffee produces a change in this particu- 
lar within a month usually^ but it is evi- 
dent, in her case, that it required time to 
change the corpuscles of the blood, and 
that when that change was made the re- 
covery was very rapid.

Postum company, limited, at

The opera "Grand Duchess,'' which is 
to be given by home talent on Monday 
evening, at the Lyceum, for the benefit 
of St. James' Orphan home in the West 
End, promises to be a success even 
greater than anything ever given in 
Duluth before. The participants are 

well and favorably known, and are 
sparing no amount of work to acquit 
themselves well on the evening of the 
performance. The cause for which the 
opera is given Is certainly a moat 
worthy one. St. James' Orphan home 
has been established only a little over 
a year now and is already caring for 
and educating about sixty homeless 
children. It is conducted by the Sisters 
of St. Benedict, so well known for their 
work of charity in this city. The en- 
tertainment will be of a very high order 
and the music of "Grand Duchess'' is 
sure to please universally. In the 
opera there will be interpolations of 
some of the best songs, as for instance 
Miss Rena Smith will introduce "Tlie 
Swallows," by Cowen, while Mise Hec- 
tor will sing Tosti's "Good Bye.'' Tlie 
regular Lyceum orchestra, which is al- 
erady recognized as one of tho best the- 
ater orchestras in the country, will be 
augmented to twelve men, and the cos- 
tumes will come from one of the most 
extensive costumers in the country — 
Wolff, Fording & Co., Boston. The 
principals and chorus, which latter 
numbers about fifty, comprise many nf 
the best voices in the city. Box parties 
are already forming and the prospects 
are that the evening will be one of social 
importance as well aa musical enjoy-

Cleveland Leader: A few days ago in 
Chicago, F. W. Bui*lrk of that city ; F. A. 
Garfield, of Jamestown, N. Y., and R. H. 
Wallace, of Cleveland, all employes of the 
Erie railroad, got together. Ordinarily 
they are not together three minutes be- 
fore some one feels that he is painful. y un- 
der obligations to the crowd by reason of 
having been the object of a joke. On this 
occasion the three were especially amiable 
in common, and the brunt of the fun tow- 
ard some outsider. Two or three others 
were in the crowd, among them a man 
from St. Paul. Things were pretty quiet 
when Mr. Garfield looked up and said: 

"How is the Chicago ice crop this year, 
Buskirk?" Then the wink went round. 

"Oh, we cut an ordinary amount. How 
are the highlands of (^autauqua?" 

"Same old story. Ice worms again spoiled 
everything." , a* 

"Ice worms?" put in the man from St. 
Paul. "I live in the Ice l)elt and I never 
heard of anything like tnat." .. , . 

"Probably not. You folks are too fond of 
sliding on it to make an Investigation as 
to what Is on the inside." 

General surprise was thereupon ex- 
pressed that a St. Paul man had never 
heard of an ice worm, and upon his mak- 
ing inquiry Mr. Garfield made the follow- 
ing explanation: 

"The ice worm looks very much like a 
grub. It travels as fast as a mole, but in- 
stead of raising a ridge in the Ico, as the 
mole does in the ground. It eats the ice as 
it proceed.s. It IK'es on the small insects 
that are frozen In the water. The damage 
is caused by leaving the ice porous or 
honeycombed so that it melts very quickly 
and it is Impossible to store it." 

The St. Paul man believed the story.

Work of the Legislature 
Being Pushed. 

Younger Parole Bill Is 
Declared Invalid. 

St. Paul, April 6.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— The closing days of a legis- 
lative session are on the rag tag and 
bobtail order, so far as keeping track 
of them is concerned. The house or 
«enate will K-egin the day with the best 
of intentions, sc far as observing the 
strict order of business is concerned, 
and in a few minutes members- will be 
on their feet seeking for suspension of 
the rules to advance some pet measure, 
or the rtception of the privileged re- 
ports of conference committees will 
break in on the regular transaction' of 
business.' The endless roll calls and 
the monotonous reading of billa lor 

final passage makes the sessions unin- 
teresting to the casual observer and at 
times cftnfusing to those who under- 
stand the ins and outs of the matter. 
But with all the apparent confusion 
there is definite and distinct progress, 
and as the of the session ap- 
proaches the desks are being gradually 
cleared of the business and the last day 
will find all matters somehow disposed 
As two years ago the larger bodj has set 
the example for good work. The' senate 
Is capable of good work and can do it 
rapidly. The house is slower movin? 
and has more untried members. But 
it is the case of the and Hie 
hare all over again, and the apparently 
sluggish half of the legislature has. 
come to the closing of the race in ad- 
vance. It became necessary on 
Wednesday fur the senate to begin its 
session at 9 o'clock and even with 
that hour there is a great accumulation 
of work to be taken care of in some 
manner. It will be out of the way by 
next Thursday night's adjournment, 
but naturally these last measures can- 
not receive a.'? careful attention as 

those which may have gone before. 

« • • 

The primary elections bill has gone 
through both houses at last and the 
signature of the governor will make it 
a law. The first bill along this lin.^ to 
be introduced came from Representa- 
tive HiUmond, a Democrat, and it pro- 
vided simply for the extension of the 
law applying to Minneapolis to al] tiie 
rest of the state. But the Republican 
majority wanted the law for it own 
and Representative Dunn presented an- 
other measure which amended the Min- 
neapf)iis law in some particulars and 
was in itself a general law taking the 
place of the existing law applying only 
to the one city. This Dunn bill, with 
a few amendments, is the measure 

which has gone to the governor. 

• • • 

Then this last week has seen the 
completion of the victory of Jacobson 
In the final passage of his gross earnings 
bill through the senate and the send- 
ing of it to the governor for his ap- 
proval. The sulistance of it has .«;t:ll 
been re-ferred to the tax commission, al- 
though there is a bill pending to repeal 
the law creating that body. 
« • * 

The Laybourn insurance codification 
bill will be the coming labor for the 
house, comin.e: in for action Monday. A 
guhstltute is to be acted on, but it has 
not changed the original in many par- 
ticulars, the form of policy being the 
same as at present in this state. 

• • * 

The parDle of the Youngers is still un- 
rertaln. although Representative Dem- 
Ing is certainly doing all in his power t-> 
!arry the measure through in such shape 
that it will free them. Some days ago it 
was stated on good authority that Chief 
Justice Start was strongly opposed to 
the whole propjsitlon, and as the pro- 
posed law reeiuired the approval of all 
three members of the pardon board be- 
fore the prison board could Issue such 
A parole, it was evident tr.iat his posi- 
tion and the length of his term made it 
practically certain that no parole would 
be granted. A few days later the story 
pot Into circulation that the bill was un- 
constitutional in that it gave to the 
rhi'^f justice unconstitutional powers, 
snd might therffore be returned by the 
governor without his approval. This was 
foil T wed yesterday with a motion by Mr. 
Deming for the recall of his bill from 
the governor to look Into the pissibly 
unconstitutional provision, and if pos- 
Bible to amend it in accordance witCi the 
fundamental law of the state. The mo- 
tion was adopted and the bill was ac- 
cordingly returned by the governor for 
further cnnslderaticn by the house. 

It remains to be seen whether the ob- 
jectionable feature can be eliminated 
from the bill. Opinions differ as to 
« this is. Some actually believe the 
story of an unconstitutional provi«ion. 
but the larger number seem to suspect 
that the attitude of the chief justice 
against any parole or pardon of the 
Youngers is the actual feature against 
which the bill has run. However, At- 
torney General Douglas is authority for 
the statement that the bill is uncon- 
stitutional. The attorney general holds 
that the legislature has no authority to 
delegate t") the chief justice the power of 
parcling pri.soncrs, and that by so doing 
the bill is invalidated. The opinion Is 
l>ased on the ground that the labors of 
the chlrf ju.stice under the constitution 
roust be purely judicial, and that the 
power to pardon and the power to 

parole are distinct and different. 

. • • 

There has been good-natured rivalry 
between the clerks of the two houses 
during the present session over their 
\vorl<— that is the desk clerk.«!. Secretary 
of the Senate Sam Langum ha? two as- 
sistants who have, like himself, been at 
their desks before and snould know the 
ropes thoroughly. In the house tCie full 
force was "green," but that has not 
meant that they were incapable of learn- 
ing. The past wee'K has given the Cicuse 
force a good chance to get ahead, and 
they have not ceased rejoicing. Senator 
Swenlngson had a bill In the senate to 
regulate the practice of optometry, but 
the senate clerks Ciad not yet been ex- 
amined tor their spectacles, and sent 
the bill into the house with a report of 
Its pa.ssage before it had come up for 
final pas.sage in the senate. The house 
ix'ys enjoyed it immensely when ttie 
senate had to "recall" the bill in order 
to act on it. 

It so happened that on the same day 
Mr. Umland made a handsome apology 
to Chief Clerk Schraahl. wtiose work he 
liad criticized on the floor. TTmland Is a 
good Democrat, who likes to find flaws 
In the majority party, but he is always 
quick Lo give credit where It I' due. 
fio when he found that he had attacked 

the clerk .without proper occasion, hi 
got the floor and expressed his regret at 

his mistake. 

• * « 

The Sixth district is well represented 
in the clerical force of the house, so far 
as ability goee, and various improve- 
ments in, the make-up of the house 
journal are due to George H. Spear, the 
Brainerd lawyer, who has been giving 
his time to the work of the first assisi.- 
aiit clerk of the house. Mr. Spear is an 
old newspaper man, having reported 
several sessions cf the house for the 
Minneapolis Journal, a:;d has been put- 
ting in some of his spare time doin.g a 
little work for his old employers cJi that 
Taper daring the pre^nt session The 
result has been that some of the news- 
paper boys have been a trifle jealo-us of 
their own rights and have suspected 
him of maneuvering things to their dis- 
advantage, when there has been no real 
evidence to support the suspicion. Chief 
Clerk Schmahl and Assistant Clerit 
Spear have instituted one decided im- 
provement, in having a typewriter pre- 
pare clear copy of the reports and pro- 
ceedings for tiie printer, the reby mak- 
ing less frequent the errors in ihn 
house journal, of w'hich there are al- 
ways a great many, because the dnih 
journal presented to members must of 
necessity be an uncorrected proof. Thi-< 
daily journal is further corrected hy 
Mr. Spear, and the final completed jour- 
nal of the house will, when published, 
be found to be of more than usual ac- 
cuiac}-. Schmahl is a Redwood Fiil-i 
editor, and well known. Spear should 
be appreciated by his fellowtownsmen, 
for he does the town credit.

cellent thing by passing Senator Sny- 
der's bill, providing for the Introduct'on 
of the "Torrens system of regi.*terini5

with strong opposition and was defeat- 
ed at first, but was at once reconsid- 
ered and, after being amended as to 
apply to only St. Lc'uic, Ramsty and 
Hennepin counties, was pas.«ed and sent 
to the house, where there is fair pros- 
pfict that it will also be approved.

Soon after tne decision wa.s announced 
a petition was presented to the president 
for pardon on the grounds that sentence 
was unjust and excessive according to -ill 
Uf ago of courts. The petition was refer- 
red to .Vttorney General Griggs, who un- 
hesitatingly approvexl it and returned it 
to the president last Friday when he at- 
tended his last cabln'^t meOUng. The 
president has had it on his desk since that 
time, having been imable to spare time 
for Its consideration. It is stateil that 
the president will review the case care- 
fully before he takes any action, and it is 
nicely to be some time before he takes any 
action on the petition. It will csirtainly 
be disposed cf. however, before he goes 
on his trip to the Pacific coast. 


The Fiendish Deed of an In- 
sane Mother. 

Parkersburg, ^V. Va., April 6.— Held in 
a fire hall by its mother until Its head 
was literally burned away and its body 
a charred masa of flesh, the 2-year-old 
son. of a man named Morris was found 
dead yesterday. No other cause than iii- 
siinity can be assigne<l for the deed. Mr. 
Morris lived with his family In the south- 
ern part of the city. Seemingly, Mrs. 
Morris had been content until a few *lays 
ago. when she be?an to evince a dislike 
for her youngest child Th'ei woman upon 
the discovery of her crime was sullen 
and -would give no reason for what t-he 
had done other than she was weary of 
the care of her child and thought it would 
be better dead.

Charges of Bribery Made 

By Jacobson Not 


The Committee Makes 

a Lengthy Report to 

the House. 

No Evidences of Corrupt 

tion Were Submitted 

to Them. 

St. Paul, April 6.— The house after 
struggling through a dry grist of stuff 
all day, just before adjournment Fri- 
day evening, heard the report of the 
committee appointed to investigate the 
charges made by Messrs. Jacobson and 
Washburn that bribery had been prac- 
ticed in connection with the gross earn- 
ings tax bill. The report is, in part, as 

Mr. Speaker: We, your committee ap- 
pointed to investigate the charges of 
bribery made on the Moor of this house 
of representatives, in connection witn 
house file 291, communly known as the 
gross earnings bill <)n March 20, beg 
leave to submit the f'jUowing report: 

Your committee reciuested Mr. Wash- 
burn to appear befure it and he ac- 
cordingly appeared and laid before us 
all the testimony and answered all 
questions put to him concerning the 
matter under consideration. The com- 
mittee herewith submits only such por- 
tion of his testimony as is in its judg- 
ment revelant and material. Your 
committee also herewith submits such 
testimony of other witnesses who tes- 
tified as is in its judgment relevant 
and material. Yfcur committee fur- 
ther reports that in its opinion the evi- 
dence submitted to it does not sustain 
the charges. 

Your committee further reports that 
it believes the evidence produced was 
sufficient to put persms on inquiry and 
to request investigation although not 
sufficient to sustaiil charges. 



April 5. 1901. 

The committee met at the Merchants 
hotel April 1. 1901. at 4:30 p. m. W. D. 
Washburn, Jr., appeared before the 
committee with his attorney, J. A. 
Peterson. Mr. Washburn was sworn. 

Mr. Washburn makes tho following 
statement: "On March 15, 1901, I met 
Representative E. C. Hogan, of Stearns 
county, on Wabasha street 1 had never 
met Mr. Hogan before and only knew 
him by name. Mr. Hogan then asked 
me how I stood op the sors* earnings 
tax. I answered. '1 am In favor of it on 
general principles, but have not yet de- 
cided whether the law would be consti- 
tutional.' I wanted to hear further ar- 
gument on the subject. Mr. Hogan then 
said: 'Well, aren't you on?'- I an- 
swered: 'Onto what?" Mr. Hogan then 
said: 'The tax committee is going to 
send the gross earnings bill back to 
the house with the recommendation 
that it be referred to the tax commit- 
tee.' I answered: 'I don't believe they 
are going to do this as I have heard 
nothing about it and I am on the com- 
mittee myself. At any rate we have 
a meeting tonight and I will probably 
know more about it.* 'No.' said Mr. 
Hogan. 'you will not have a meeting 
tonight. It is going to be postponed 
till Monday night. You wait and see. 
Mr. Washburn, there is $200 in this.' I 
answered: "$200 in what?' He said: 
'There is $200 for any member who will 
vote to recommend the gross earnings 
bill to the tax commission. We have 
eighteen members already. Your father 
is interested in the Soo line and he cer- 
tainly should be opposed to this mea- 
sure.' I answered: 'I do not know 
whether he Is opposed to it or not. He 
is not in the habit of bribing legislators 
nor is any member of his family. I do 
not suppose that any man living in the 
state of Minnesota would dare to pre- 
sent any such proposition to me.' 

"Mr. Hogan answered: 'I am sorry I 
spoke to you. I think I have probably 
made a mistake In my man.' I said. 'You 
certainly have. If I understand what you 
ere trying to convey.' Mr. Hogan then 
said. 'Mr. Washburn. I hope you will tell 
nD one of this conversation.' I answered, 
'I shall make no promises whatever. I 
do not know what I shall do about It.' 
W'e then entered the capitol, and this 
ended the conversation. 

"On Wednesday, March 20, during Mr. 
Jacobson's speech. I asked Mr. Hogan to 
step Into the postofflce lobby. I theft 
said, 'Mr. Hogan. you will remember tSie 
conversation we had on Friday about 
the gross earnings bill?' Mr. Hogau 
said, 'Yes.' I said, 'You remember what 
you said to me?' He answered, 'What 
was It?' I said. 'You told me there was 
$200 in it for anyane who voted to refer 
the gross earnings bill to the tax com- 
mission. You said you had eighteen 
members. Mr. Hogan, this Is getting to 
be a serious matter. If this minority 
report Is beaten, it will certainly be my 
duty to give this Information to the 
house before a final vote is taken.' 

"I then said: 'Mr. Hogan, I hardly 
know you at all. I never met you be- 
fore you spoke to me last week. I do 
not want to Injure you in any way. For 
your own sake and the sake of the party 
and state. I hope this minority report 
will not be beaten. You must do what- 
ever you think right in the matter, but 
I hope you and your friends will be able 
to vote for the minority report.' 

"Mr. Hogan answered: 'If they have 
an Investigation I cannot tell them any- 
thing, as I know nothing about it what- 
ever.' I answered,' 'If you know nothing 
about this, why on earth did you tell 
me the story you told me last weelc?" 
Mr. Hogan answered, 'I thought likely 
you would know something about it. I 
have had little experience, and this is 
my first term In the legislature.' I an- 
swered, "I am sorry for you. Matters 
will have to take their course." " 

Questioned by chairman — Have you 
heard any intimation or accusation of 
money being used In the Interest of the 
gross earnings bill other than that 
stated by you already. 

Answer by Mr. Washburn — I have 

Representative J. F. Jacobson .ap- 
peared before the committee at this time 
and was sworn. 

Statement by Mr. Jacobson: 

"I had a talk with different members 
of the tax committee, and I asked the 
chairman if there was any opposition to 
the gross earnings bill. He said there 
was not that he knew of. I asked him 
then to call the coounittee together as 

early as possible, so that I could get a 
report as early as possible. He said he 
would do that within a few days, but 
the committee was not called together, 
and 1 went to him again after the lapse 
of four or five days and he said he 
would try to get the committee together 
the next day; biit he failed to call the 
committee together that day. He was 
present in the house of representatives. 
I asked him then again If there was any 
opposition to the bill, or if the oppasltlon 
had asked for any hearing, or delay on 
the bill. He said tiliey had not. and 
that he did not believe they were going 
to make any fight on the bill in the 
house this year. I again urged a call of 
the committee that day. He said that 
on account of other things that he had 
to do, he could not call a meeting of the 
committee that day, but would tomor- 
row, and the next morning I saw him 
as we cDnvened and asked him what 
time in the day he would have the meet- 
ing. He told me then that he had 
granted a public Liearing to the railroad 
companies' attorneys for the next week, 
about five or six days ahead of the time 
we were speaking of— about one week 
later. I asked him then if both sides 
could be represented, so we could take 
final action that same day. He told me 
he did not think he could do that, but 
that he would call a meeting to take 
final action on the bill on Tuesday of the 
next week. I complained of the long 
delays and said I did not think I was 
getting fair treatment. When that day 
came, the chairman was unable, on ac- 
count of sickness, to be present in the 
house, and it went along two or three 
days, or until about the end of the week 
—I believe Friday. Then I sent word to 
him to have someone else call the com- 
mittee together, and he sent me a note 
consenting to this, and asked me to have 
Representative Torson call the meeting. 
Mr. TorsDn did this, and the meeting was 
called for 4 o'clock on adjournment 

"During the noon recess. Representa- 
tive Torson went down to get the bill 
from the chairman of the committee on 
taxes, and he (Mr. Torson) informed me 
that Mr. Wallace would not let him 
have the bill, so the meeting was de- 
clared off. I was then informed the 
next Monday or Tuesday of the follow- 
ing week that the chairman of the com- 
mittee on taxes had called a meeting at 
the Windsor hotel to take final action 
on the bill that afternoon. During the 
preceding two weeks, before this final 
meeting was held, I had talked with 
several members of the committee, ami 
all those I talked with said they were 
In favor of the bill. When we met at 
the Windsor hotel all the members 
were present, I believe, except Repre- 
sentative Washburn. I made a motion 
that the bill be taken up and recom- 
mended to pass. The motion was sec- 
onded by Representative Peter.->on of 
Hennepin county but was not put. Rep- 
presentative Berg, a member of the 
committee, pulled out of his pocket a 
typewritten resolution, which was in 
substance, if not entirely, the majority 
report as finally adopted by the com- 
mittee. There wa-s no discussion had 
and no criticisms of the bill made. The 
motion was put to adopt the '•esolution 
offered by Mr. Berg without discussing 
its details, showing plainly to me that 
there was a preconcerted and well-de- 
fined understanding amongst all- the 
members who signed the majority re- 
port. I had been informed previously to 
this— the day before— that euch action 
would be taken. I asked a member of 
the committee before we went into 
the meeting whether such report was 
true. He said he had not heard any- 
thing about it. but he seconded the mo- 
tion to adopt the resolution of Mr. Berg 
before there had been one word of dis- 
cussion QP the resolution or the bill. 
This, together with the Information I 
had received through Representative 
Washburn, convinced me that there 
unfair means ueed to defeat the bill. 
Other things that occurred the next 
morning in the public press of this city, 
and a portion of the Minneapolis papers, 
showed plainly that there was concert 
of action from some central source, as 
at least four editorials that appeared In 
four of papers, if not entirely 
Identical in language, were so in sub- 
stance. I had several consultations with 
several of the house members and « 
number of the senators as to what ac- 
tion should be pursued under the cir- 
cumstances. After I had gone over the 
case thoroughly with them, it was 
deemed that the public interests could 
be better subserved' by bringing the 
matter to the knowledge of the house. 

"I therefore stated on the floor of the 
house that I was in possession of affi- 
davits that convinced me that there 
was a corrupt lobby against the bill, 
and that it was not only on the outside, 
but had extended to a portion of the 
members of the house. ' 

Question by chairman— You have tnosa 

Answer by Representative Jacobson— 
I had an affidavit from Mr. Washburn 
at that time. 

Question by chairman— Had you more 
than one affidavit on that subject at the 

Answer by Representative Jacobson— 


Question by. ohairman^Will you fur- 
nish that affidavit to the committee? 

Answer by Representative Jacobson— 
I have returned it to Mr. Washburn. I 
will furnish it if I can. In addition to 
the matter of the affidavit, I want to 
say that Mr. Washburn called me and 
Senator Snyder into a committee room, 
just as he came from the interview with 
Mr. Hogan. as stated by Mr. Washburn, 
and he told me in detail all that oc- 
curred between Hogan and him. After- 
ward he made an affidavit substantially 
revering the same ground that hs re- 
lated to myself and Senator Snyder. 

Question b^ chairman- Do you know. 
Mr. Jacobson. of your own personal 
knowledge, of any unlawful means hav- 
ing been used for or against the gross 
earnings bill? 

Answer by Representative Jacobson— 
Not other than tboee stated above. 

The committee met In adjourned ses- 
sion April 2. at 4 p. m. Representative 
Hogan appeared before the committee 
and was sworn. 

Question by the chairman: Mr. Hogan, 
do you wish an attorney with you while 

Answer by Mr. Hogan: No, I do not. 

Mrs. Hogan's statement: 

"While I was walking up Wabasha 
street on or about March 15, I hap- 
pened to look around. I saw Mr. Wash- 
bum coming up the street and I thought 
to myself, now I am going to find out if 
there Is anything in the gross earnings 
bill because his father is a stockholder 
in the Soo line. I slowed up and Mr. 
Washburn caught up to me. I bid him 
the time of day and said: 'Mr. Wash- 
bum, how do you stand on the grosS' 
earnings bill?' Mr. Washburn said: *I 
am In favor of sending the bill to the 
tax commission. Don't you think that 
Is the place for it to go?' I said: 'Yes, 
I have thought that way ever since Mr. 
Jacobson's bill has been Introduced, and 
there are sixteen or eighteen of us who 
are going to vote that way that I know 
of.' Then he said again: 'Yes, he 
thought that was the proper place for 
it.' Then I said, while walking along: 
•I hear there is a couple of hundred in it 
for the boys.' Then he said: 'I don't 
understand you.' I said: 'For referring 
it to the tax commission.' 

"Then we got inside of the capitol. 
Going up the steps in the capitol I said 
to him: 'I know your father Is inter- 
ested in the Soo line and thought you 
would know something about this.' He 
answered something in the line of deny- 
ing that his father was very much in- 
terested In the Soo line. We got up 
stairs near the show case and he 
bought something and then we came 
together again, and Mr. Washburn said: 
'If you knew my father, you would not 

aproach me in that way.' I did not 
think more about It until the neoct day, 
I think, that he cameMo me, or within 
a day or two, and he said to me: *You 
better call your people off.' I said: 
"What do you mean?' tEe said: 'Well, 
you reni'ember the conversation we had 
doWn street?" and 1 saidf 'Yes, what is 
It?': 'Why,' he said, "you told me there 
were sixteen or" eighteen 'of them.' I 
said: 'I -never mentioned "anybody's 
name at all, and I was only trying to 
find out if there was any money in it.' 
Then he said: 'Well, it is all according 
to how the committee will take it.' That 
is all the conversation I had with Mr. 

Questioned by Mr. Wells: How did 
you come to say that you knew that 
there were sixteen or eighteen going to 
vote that way? 

Answer by Mr. Hogan: I just formed 
an opinion by hearing different mem- 
bers express themselves at dierent 
times. I have always been in favor of 
referring the bill and so expressed my- 
self to Judge Alby and others long prior 
to my conversation with Representa- 
tive Washburn. 

Questioned by Mr. Wells: Do you 
know of your own knowledge of any per- 
son or persons offering money to influ- 
ence the vote of any member of this 
legislature for or against the gross 
earnings bill, or any other bill? 

Answer by Mr. Hogan: No, I do not. 

Question by Mr. Whitford: How did 
you come to make the remark to Mr. 
Washbum that you understood that 
there was a couple of hundred in it for 
the boys? 

Answer by Mr. Hogan: I had al- 
ways been for referring the bill to the 
tax commission and knew that no one 
wx)uld approach me, but had heard 
rumors and felt curious to find out if 
there was anything in it. thinking this 
was as good a chance as I could get, 
thinking that Mr. Washburn being the 
son of a arilroad owner would probably 
be posted on what was going on. 

Question by Mr. Johnson: Have you 
at any time been approached unlaw- 
fully by anyorie outside of the legisla- 
ture (anyone not a member) to use 
your influence for or against the gross 
earnings bill, or has anyone offered you 
any money or other consideration for 
your vote on the gross earnings bill, or 
any other measure? 

Answer by Representative Hogan: 
No, I have not. 

Question by Representative Lee: Do 
you know of your own knowledge of any 
member having been approached un- 
lawfully by any person or persons re- 
garding this measure or any other mea- 

Answer by Representative Hogan: 
No, I do not.

Illinois Elopers Are Dragged 
From a Train. 

La Salle, III., April 6.— An attempted 

elopement furnished a sensation and no 

end of amusement at the C, K. 1. & P. 
deixjt in this c*ty. Among the lai-ge> 
crowd in waiting for an east-bound pa»»- 
senger train was John Hiser and Mis9 
Maiv Cox, two of the city's prominent 
young people. They attracted much i^t- 
teaiion owing to their apparent norvoue- 

Several minutts before the train pulled: 
In, there arrived at the depot a woman 
weighing not less than _2po pounds. Si.e 
was evidently in a state df ^reaJ. excile- 
ment. She was clad In a light housa 
wrappcn- and wa*» bareheaded. In sten- 
torian tones she asked if any one had seen 
her daughter, Cox, who at the time 
was crouchieia with Hiser behind a pile of 
trunks. No one gave her any loforma- 

When the train arrived the crowd 
formed a circle Around the elope^rs to 
shield them from view. Mrs. Cox. how- 
ever, caught sight of her daughter as sue 
entered tne citr and she bounded after 

She ordered the romantic girl to return 
home Immedlateily. The girl refused, and. 
mot her- like, Mrs. Cox procee<led to chas- 
tise her. The first blow knocked the glrra 
Eapter hat on the flooj. The angry 
mother leaped on the hat and ruined It. 
The nrospectlve huFband interfered as the 
mother was dragging hor daughter from 
the car. He w-as struck across the noae 
with an umbrella. 

Mrs. Cox. hcT daughter and Hiser wer<» 
led from the train, by two pollcemien. The 
train left twenty minutes late and the 
passengers cheered Mrs. Cox. who. with

She Explains How She Keeps Her 

Complexion Clear With 


New York, April 6.— "There is no use 
denying the fact, said Mademoiselle 
Carel, one of the noted Skin Specialists, 
"but many women ruin their com- 
plexions by using face powders., cos- 
metics and skin foods. Why. It is 
simply nonsensical to use things that 
only stop up the pores of the skin, ag- 
gravate the skin and make your com- 
plexion worse than if you had never 
used them. My rules for keeping the 
complexion clear and free from pimples 
and blackheads are as follows: Elat 
good, wholesome food, eat regularly, 
drink plenty of cold pure water, take at 
least eight hours sleep, take a cold 
sponge bathe everj' morning, but above 
all, keep your bowels regular by usingr 

This gentle laxative is the best tonlo 
for the bowels and liver: it removes all 
impurities from the system and makes 
a clestr complexion. Every woman 
should have a bottle in the house. It 
is the best laxative tonic and the best 
blood purifier. 

Cascarlne removes from the breath 
unpleasant odors arising from ferment- 
ative decomposition of food. It pre- 
vents the constipation which usually 
follows the use of other drugs of its 

Go to your druggist's today and buy 
a bottle of Cascarlne. It comes in blue 
and white wrappers and is not a tablet 
or a pill. Doctors recommend it because 
it will not gripe and because no other 
laxative is as good.

the swift or the battle to the atron». 
Many a man has bad a hard gallop for a 
certain section and when he arrived there 
he found that it had been pre-eonpted by 
aomeoene who had sneaked in beforehand. 
tn.«ite«Ld of making an honest race. The 
proposition of Congressman Clark of Tex- 
as seems to be the fairest one presented. 
His Idea la that the lands should be drawn 
by lot, and that every man drawing a 
quarter section should be compelled to 
live on it and cultivate it for a certain 
time in order to retail his title. The lot- 
tery feature of his scheme wou4d secure 
fairm^s and w^ould be a blow to the specu- 
lators and the "soaners." It Is under- 
stood that the government has such a 
plan under consideration and it may be 
brought into use on the occasion of the 
opening of these lands. 


Not one of the great truths set forth 
in the New Testament is clad with so 
much importance or fraught with so 
much meaning to the Christian world 
as the resurrection of Jesus Christ from 
the dead. Strauss has said: "The 
resurrection of Jesus forms the central 
point of the very center, the very heart 
of Christianity, and. therefore, it has 
been above all things else the mark for 
the sharpest arrows of her adversaries.' 
Christianity stands by the empty tomb 
and challenges any attack on the his- 
toric credibility of the resurrection of 
Jesus. Upon it is reared the structure 
of Christian civilization. It is the 
foundation, and it has stood as firm as 
a rock throughout the centuries since 
that far-off Eastertide when the grave 
was opened and Christ appeared again 
to his mourning disciples. 

The triumphs of the Grospel through 
the long years of eighteen centuries are 
witnesses to the soundness of the his- 
torical basis of fact on which man- 
kind's hopes of the future rest. It is 
nonsensical to suppo.«e for an instant 
that for eighteen centuries the civilized 
world has been deceived and men have 
treasured a myth for fact and been in- 
spired by a dream. 

The blight hope of immortality is cen- 
tered in the risen Christ. Death has 
been robbed of its stiag. The grave is 
not the end, but, as Milton so beauti- 
fully pictured it, a "golden gate on 
golden hinges turning." The white 
radiance of eternity streams through 
the open sepulchre in Joseph's garden, 
and bids man to rejoice in the blessed 
assurance that he will pass from this 
life into everlasting glory. This is why 
Easter is the most joyous festival in 
the church calendar, when the altars are 
decked with lilies and the songs of 
praise ascend to heaven.

The Minnesota 
stnate has been re- 
deepiing its reputa- 
tion during the 
closing days of the 
se.«sion, and the 
majority of Its members who may sefk 
re-election next year will be able to ijoint 
to their records as evidence that they 
were faithful to the trust reposed in them. 
The passage of the Jacobson bill to in- 
crease the gross earnings tax on the 
railroads from 3 to 4 per cent was rather 
Unexpected, but highly gratifying to the 
people throughout the state. It will be 
fully three years before the higher tax 
can be collected, the bill mu.<t 
t)e submitted to popular vote at the next 
Btate election and then, if the measure be 
approved, of which there is little doubt. 
It will be nearly a year before tha railroads 
will be called upon to pay the tax. Next. 
after great pressure had been employed 
by the newspapers that reflect public 
opinion, the senate pased the primary 
election bill with a few amendments that 
Improved the measure as it came from 
the house. The latter l>ody would not 
agree to all the amendments, but a com- 
promise was reached and the bill has been 
passed by both branches and sent to the 
governor. Yesterday afternoon the senate 
added another go<xl feature to its rec- 
ord by passing the Snyder bill to establish 
the Torrens system of land title transfers 
ia this state. While It does not apply to 
the whole state, being limited in Its op- 
•ratiorvs to St. Louis. Ramsey and Henne- 
|)ln counties, it is a good step forward in 
the right direction and the future will 
probably see the system exlende<l to all 
the counties. Of course, the bill has not 
yet pa.-ised the house, but there should be 
no hesitation on the part of the members 
of the lower branch in adopting this ex- 
cellent .'^ystenj. The popular sentiment in 
Duluth. Minneapolis and^t. Paul strongly 
favors the bill.

Dispatches from 
fWasihingtMn state 
that preparations 
are progressing for 
the op<-ning to set- 
tlement of the Ki- 
owa, Comanche and Apache and the 
"Wichita reservations in Oklahoma, and it 
Is ex;>ected that both reservations will be 
ready for opening on Aug. 6, the date fixed 
for the former. A contract for re-survey 
of the latter has just been let and it Is 
expected that arrangements will be con- 
sununated so as to open the two together. 
Commissioner Hermann, of the general 
land ortlce, will submit a report in about 
a week to Secretary Hitchcock on the 
several plans proposed for making the 
opening. It is estimated that these lands 
to be thrown, open for settlement will fur- 
nish homes for 10,000 people and the ques- 
tion of the method of making the allot- 
ments is one which is receiving consider- 
able attention from those in charge. If 
such a thing is posisihle there should be a 
plan arranged that will not only give 
everybody a fair and equal show, but will 
keep out the element of speculation. This 
}«nd should bo taken by people who hon- 
estly intend to settle upon it, to work It, 
and to keep it. The provision against 
"sooners" should be of the most stringent 
character. There have been too many 
of them lM*retofore who have fattened off

serving people were left In the rear. fThe

The excommunication of Count Leo 
Tolstoi is likely to mark an epoch, not 
only in Russian politics, but in the his- 
tory of the Greek church. Tolsioi is 
the manifestation in one intellect of the 
universal Russian mind. The almost 
hopeless struggle of mediaeval Russia 
toward material progress has its coun- 
terpart in the despairing but insistent 
cry of Tolstoi for moral and intelleoiua! 
light. His is the cry of the strong &oul 
fettered by environment and which sees 
in the distance the sunshine and l>lue 
sky of absolute freedom. Tolstoi is by 
common consent one of the greatest 
minds of modern times, but he - ia 
wholly Russian. Although his concep- 
tions are universal he is an idealist cir- 
cumscribed by the boundaries of Rus- 
sia and Russian life. Had he known 
more of the world he would have, per- 
haps, been broader but less intense. 
That to him "the Russian soul from the 
highest official to the poorest peasant 
is as an open boolc one cannot doubt. 
He has sounded the gamut of national 
feeling, aspiration and despair. Forced 
in upon himself he has developed ideals 
which to him are perfect, because he hag 
not taken tho trouble to compare thoni 
with the outside world. In the midst 
of an organized society based upon 
force, he teaches the principle of non- 
resistance to force. Condemning the 
existing order of things, both political 
and social, he would lead his people to 
an ideal state through the byways of 
peace rather than seize by force their 
undisputed inheritance. The man born 
to power and Influence and the soldier 
of the Crimea has evolved through his 
own mystical idealism Into the leather- 
girdled peasant, who in his strict fol- 
lowing of the spirit of Christ would, 
when smitten on the right cheek, turn 
to his assailant the other also. 

This living example of Christian 
ethics has become the idol of the Rus- 
sian masses. Their regard for him Is 
akin to worship. So firm has been his 
hold upon the imagination of the people 
that the government has to this day 
feared to subject him to the fate meted 
out to other but less powerful disturb- 
ers of the public serenity. His books 
might be seized and burned, but yet 
the czar and his minions have not dared 
to lay hands upon the Lord's anointed. 
The excommunication of this expon- 
ent of the national mind was a blunder. 
It was a political blunder when viewed 
from the point of government. It was 
worse than a blunder when viewed from 
the point of church supremacy. For no 
man has sought with more diligence to 
tread in the footsteps of the Christ than 
Leo Tolstoi. He was put under the ban 
of the church for "pride of intellect," 
j for having dared to think thoughts not 
laid down in the creed. But the people 
see in his teachings and in his daily 
life not the "pride of intellect," but the 
very spirit of the meek and lowly 

A reformation more s\veepingr than 
that of Luther is at hand. It will be 
more sweeping because the theater of 
its action will be more extended. Tol- 
stoism will not only divide the Russian 
church, but it will extend to other coun- 
tries and to other churches. Alth:>ugh 
the great idealist is confined in his 
knowledge largely to Russia and Rus- 
sian life, he has touched the imlversal 
springs of action wherever the circle of 
the life that he knows coincides with 
the universal life-circle of the world. 
His analysis of motives Is consummate. 
Wherever the French and English lan- 
guages are spoken the name of Tolstoi 
is as familiar a$ Balzac or G«orge Eliot 


A Washington correspondent states 
that public men there who are interested 
in watching the progress of American 
shipping are noting with special Interest 
two points with reference to the com- 
merce of the great lakes. One is the 
Jump in the aggregate tonnage under 
oonstriictlon on the lakes from 42,000 to 
83,000 for the nine months of the cur- 
rent fiscal year, compared Avlth the cor- 
responding period of last year. This is 
especially noticeable in respect to the 
steel ships under construction on tSie 
lakes. For the three-quarters of last 
year there were ten steel ships under 
construction, and this year there are 
twenty-five. The average tonnage of the 
majority of these ships is more tihan 
3000 gross tons each, and several of 
them will register above 5000 gross tons 

Another point of interest is the con- 
struction of four steel ships which will 
ply between the lakes and Europe. These 
ships are of about 3000 gross tons each, 
and will have a carying capacity of up- 
wards of 1500 tons each. These vessels 
are constructed of such length and draft 
as to permit them to paiss the Canadian 
canal. Interest in this enterprise Is 
manifested on account of the belief that 
the success of these ships will prove a 
practical demonstration of the utility of 
a canal in all-American territory con- 
necting the great lakes with the sea- 
board. One of the last remarks made 
by Senator Spooner of Wisconsin be- 
fore leaving Washington this spring was 
that he expected to devote considerable 
time in the next congress to advancing 
the construction of such a canal. Mr. 
Spooner and a number of other North- 
western senators regard this project of 
vastly more Importance to the Ameiican 
people than an isthmian canal would be. 
If it shall be demonstrated that the four 
new ships can be successfully operated 
by the saving of freights, reshipments 
at lake ports and increased cost of rail- 
way carriage, it will prove the utility of 
a canal to the sea. 

But while it may prove the utility of a 
short waterway to the sea like the St. 
Lawrence route. It will not necessarily 
prove the utility of a long and circuitous 
deep waterway through ail-American 
territory to tidewater at New York. The 
latter route, in addition to being longer, 
will be more expensive on account of the 
numerous locks required. Vessel owners 
will be inclined to send their boats via 
the Canadian canals and ttie St. Law- 
rence river in preference to such a 
waterway. The best plan would be to 
unite with Canada in deepening the 
Welland and St. Lawrence caaals so 
that vessels drawing twenty-one feet 
could pass through. This would enable 
grain and other products of the North- 
west and the iron and steel from Lake 
Erie plants to be carried direct to Europe 
without breaking bulk. Reshipments are 
expensive, and by the creation of this 
deep waterway they would be made un- 
necessary. The waterway could be 
placed in the control of a joint commis- 
sion and its neutrality in time of war 
guaranteed. Such a waterway is of 
vastly more importance to a large and 
populous section of the United States 
than is an isthmian canal.

ests are said to be at the bottom of the 
move. The plan employed by the United 
States Steel company will be followed— 
the stock of the controlling company will 
be exchanged for the stocks of the con- 
stituent companies. 

Nothing in our time approaches the 
sweep in human life which the latest In- 
dian census figures reveal. Had the same 
rate of increase pre\'ailed between 1H91 
and 1901 that did between 1881 and 1891. the 
population of India this year should have 
shown an Increase of »o»me 32,000,000. As 
It Is the increase is but 4,2S3,069. and that, 
it Is said,, is proi>ably more apparent than 
real. The falling off that must be ac- 
counted for is at least 28,000.000. An an- 
alysis of the census returns shows that 
the famine districts are responsible for 
the bulk of the deficit. The ultimate evf- 
focts of famines, of course, are years In 
being felt. 

The ITnlted States Is now ahead of Ger- 
many in naval strength by about 3d00 tons, 
and thus is entitled to fourth place among 
naval powers. The naval intelligence of- 
fico has just worked out this fact by care- 
ful comparisons. The race has been very 
close between Germany and this country 
for some time, but their future rank de- 
pends entirely upon the amount of money 
each is willing to expend in building new 
ships of war. But what good will be ac- 
complished by building a huge navy- 
larger than the country needs? 

The new London city council has 
plunged at once into the building business 
In order to remedy over-crowding. The 
decision is to buy 225 acres of land in a 
suburb and build 5T79 workingmen's eot- 
tage.s, at a cost of about $6,000,000. to ac- 
commodate 42,000 people. The rents 
charged will range from $6 to $12 a month, 
according to the number of rooms. This 
municipal vemture will be only a begin- 

The men who went with Funston 
should also be rewarded. They were as 
brave and daring as their leader. Of 
course they cannot expect to be made 
brigadier generals, but they should be 
suitably reocgnlzed. For Instance, the 
president might make Capt. Newton, of 
Superior, who was one of the party, a 
capUln in th e regular army.

I wonder how the organist 

Can do so many things; 
He's, getting ready long before 

The choir .stands up and sings: 
He's pressing buttons, pushing stops; 

He"'; pulling here arJ there. 
And testing all th.^ working parts 

While listening to the prayer. 

He runs a mighty big machine. 

It's full of funny things; 
A mass of boxes, pipes and tubes, 
. And sticks and slats and strings; 
There's little whistles for a cent. 

In rows and rows and rows: 
I'll bet there's twenty mile* of tubes 

As large as garden hose. 

There's scores as round as stovepipes and 

There's lots so bis and wide. 
That several little b<>ys I know 

Could play around inside; ^'^ 

From little bits of piccclos 

That hardly makft a toot. 
There's every size up to the great 

Big elevator chute. 

The organist knows every one. 

And how they ought to go; 
He makes them rumble like a storm, 

Or plays them swtet or low; 
At times vou think them very near; 

At times they're >-carlng Wgh, 
Like angel voices singing far 

Off somewhere in the sky. 

For h'e can take this structure that's 

As big as any house. 
And make It squeak as softly as 

A tiny intle mouse; . 

And then, he'll Jerk out somethmg with 

A movement of the hand, ,„„,„„ ♦„ 

And make you think you're listening to 

A military band. 

He plays it with his fingers and 

He plays it with his toe«; 
And if he really ^^-anted to 

I -.m. 



She ca 

He'd play it with his nose; 
h"s sliding up and down the bench. 

He's working with l^'s ''"^fj'vis f«at 
He's dancing round with both his leet 

As likely as you please. 

1 always like to take a seat 

Where I can sec him go. 
He's better than a .sonnon. and 

Ho does me good. I know; 
I like the life and movement ana

Cross," Etc. 

(Copyrighted, 1901, William R. Miller.) 

When Eugene Winter took his place 
as an American guard in that country's 
exhibit of machinery at the Paris exhibi- 
tion, he felt completely lost in the crush- 
ing mob which constantly advanced, 
lingered momentarily and then rushed 
on to other sights with a movement al- 
most as machine-like as the intricate 
mechanisms on every side. 

Presently he found a growing interest 

in studying the faces thronging by; for 

his duties were few, since no one was 

anxious to handle the noiseless yet 
powerful forces at work in Machinery 
hall. It happened that there was one 
machine which attracted more ttian any, 
for it was claimed by its investor to 
solve the problem of perpetual motion 
through a nice balancing of power, so 
that the forces once started were kept 
moving unless violently stopped by out- 
side interference. 

Now. the girl herself was plainly 
gowned, but Winter understood at once 
that siiie was of the highest class, and 
this not only from her beauty as much 
as from the modulations of her voice 
and an openness combined with a subtle 
reticence on certain subjects. She took 
a strong fancy to the perpetual motion 
machine and spent part of each day 
studying its different parts; and finally 
silie approached Winter, who was spe- 
cially in charge of the thing. 

'Is it forbidden to sketch the ma- 
chinery?" she asked him, as she pro- 
duced pad and pencil. 

Now, there was no provision forbid- 
ding this, and fie, told her as Ynuch. 

'"Then I may do so, I presume," she 
insisted; and. yielding to her charm of 
manner, he nodded, adding: "It will 
be difficult because of the great crowd." 
And so it proved. 

Every moment some bystander jostled 
the arm that guided the pencil, and 
after an hour's endeavor she stood, 
tired and disappointed, while the draw- 
ings themselves were valueless. She 
showed them to him with a kind of 
playful angriness. "Just see." she said, 
"what horrid affairs these are." And 
indeed it appeared to Winter that even 
the crowd could hardly result In such 
failures If the girl had been skilled in 
such things. 

"If I could only try It when there 
was none about." she declared. "I am 
sure I could do it beautifully. You see, 
I was always fond of mechanical draw- 

"There is always a crowd," Winter 
answered, "right up until 10 o'clock, 
when we close for the night." 

"It is such a ?5iame!" cried the girl, 
and although he could see no great rea- 
son in her extreme desire, none the less 
he felt an Increasing inclination to as- 
sist this charming creature in even 
more unreasonable affairs than the 

"I can see but one way," he sug- 
gested; "but no doubt you will disap- 
prove of it," and he looked question- 
Ingly at the girl, who was pressed close 
to him In the crush. 

"Yes." she answered, "and what can 
this rather doubtful proposition be?" 

"If you really care so much about the 
matter." he went on. "you could come 
to the hall after hours: there will be 
no one here but ourselves and the night 
man, and I can easily arrange it with 
him. for we are both Princeton men." 

"I»rlnceton men," she said, but with 
no surprise in* her valce. "I was w'on- 
dering which univ-erslty It was," and 
more subtle flattery could not have been 
than "this acknowledgment of an appar- 
ent difference between himself and the 
other guards. - 

"Well,'* toe- asked, what will you 
do?" '" ' 

"1 will be here at 10:30. although per- 
haps it win not be entirely proper; stiU. 
I am wild -to draw this maotrfix ; ; It has 

positively fascinated me," and, in fact. 
Winter noticed a strange determination 
creep into the girl's face as she looked 
at the engine, which throbbed calmly on, 
although apparently supplied with no 
outside power. 

That night, and numerous others, the 
guard and the girl were alone in the 
great- hall, while silent but tremendous 
engines worked ceaselessly about them. 
The perpetual motion machine was 
placed on a heavy wooden table with 
a clear view underneath, in order to 
emphasize the fact that no external 
power was used. 

They chatted constantly In the resting 
times between her drawing, and Winter 
perceived that he was growing to care 
dangerously much for this girl of whom 
he knew nothing. One evening she had 
been unusually charming, and he was 
only restrained from telling her nls 
love because he feared she would 
think that he was abusing her trust in 

"What is this great iron hood?" she 

unworthy. My father Is a millionaire, 
but he had been persuaded by the 
scoundrel who Is running this machine 
that the invention was an honest one, 
and he intended to put our entire for- 
tune Into promoting a company. I 
doubted the man. and this is the result 
of the matter — the fraud Is. indeed, un- 
hooded." and she triumphantly pushed 
the Iron hood with her fw)t. 

"And now." she said, while a tinge of 
embarrassment crept Into her manner, 
"I shall join our party, whloii has gone 
to Florence. In the beginning I had in- 
tended to bribe the guard over this ma- 
chine, but when I saw you I realized 
that gold would be helpless." 

"There are other bribes besides gold." 
he answered; "for the best gold of ^ 
woman Is the look of her face." ho 
quoted from an old Rngllsh comedy: 
and the crlms med countenance of the 
girl showed her comprehension of his

demanded suddenly, pointing to a huge 
cylinder; "the power seems to come from 
that. Do, please, take it off so I may 
draw this inside part; it is the most In- 
teresting of all." 

He refused, telling her that he dared 
not meddle with the thing; but finally 
she had her way, and since he was 
familiar with machinery. It was not 
long before the cylinder was lying on 
the floor and the internal mechanism 
fully exposed. As for the girl, she 
seemed possessed with an absolutely 
fierce desire to discover the secret of the 
machine. She probed the think skill- 
fully, and Indeed appeared astoundingly 
well informed in such matters. 

Presently she turned pale and leaned 
against him for a moment; then 
straightened up with a tense movement, 
and thrust her slender fingers boldly 
into the swiftly twirling wheels. 

"See!" she said, pulling up a loop of 
thin wire, "the thing Is a fraud: it Is 
supplied with electric power. Ah!" she 
exclaimed, evidently oblivious of the 
astounded Winter, "I knew It mu8t be 
so. but father persisted In believing in 
it, and it would have meant ruin for 
us, absolute penury." Then, awaken- 
ing to the fact that *e was not alone, 
she turned to Winter. "I owe you an 
explanation, perhaps even more than 
that; but at least my object was not

the Kreatest. If not the greatest, of all 
feasts of the ecclesiastical year. Every 
Christian church observes it with more 
or less ceremony and upon this day the

which there would have been no Chris- 
tian church, for that it was which estab- 
lished th.' divinity of the Master, fur- 
nishes the theme for nearly all the ser-

Many More Like It in Dnlntb 

The following case is but one of many 
similar occuring daily in Duluth. It is 
an easy matter to verify its correct- 
ness. Surely you cannot ask for better 
proof than such conclusive evidence. 

Mr. C. Coons, conducting a mar- 
ket at 104 East Fourth street, says: 
"For three or four years there was a 
severe, heavy aching pain across the 
small of my back, I did not rest well at 
night and rose in the morning feeling 
tired and worn out. The secretions from 
the kidneys were irregular and highly 
colored and on standing deposited a 
heavy sediment. I felt generally run 
down and had no energy or ambition 
left. Seeing Doan"s Kidney Pills ad- 
vertised and having heard them highly 
spoken of, I procured them at W. A. 
Abbett's Drug store, and commenced to 
use them. In a few days I noticed an 
Improvement and the aches and pains 
Boon left me. My appetite became good 
and I slept well and felt refreshed in 
the mornings. I began to gain weight, 
and, in fact, never felt better In miy

Much Life In the Colorado 


ficnver. Col., April 2.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— To reach this, the "Queen 
City of the Plains," from the "Zenith 
City of the I'nsalted Seas," I have tra- 
veled 1100 miles— nearly 1000 of them 
over the great "Burlington Route." To 
Bee Colorado's capital and metropolis is 
■worth going many more miles ihan 1 
have come. "Reading maketh a full 
man," but when it comes to a study of 
this great land of ours, observing eye-?, 
sharp eare, an inquiring tongue and a 
discriminating mind, heat reading all 
hollow. Many readers of The Herald 
probably know tenfold as much as I 
about Denver and Colorado, and where 
I have traveled furlongs through the 
state, they may have covered miles. I 
shall attempt only to present a few im- 
pressions formed during my short .•'lay, 
and to repeat certain facts, more or 
less known, but that will bear repeating 

to Duluth readers. 

• • • 

It is claimed that gold was discovered 
•within the present limits of Denver as 
early as 1855. It was not until 1858, 
however, that discoveries were made 
that became known throughout the 
settled East. That caused the "lake's 
Peak Rash," although Pike's Peak was 
nearly lOy miles distant. The discovery 
was made in the sounds of Cherry 
Creek, not many blocks from the busi- 
est center of the city of today. Near the 
junction of Cherry Creek and the Platte 
river sprang up the mining camp of 
Aurania. From that little seed has 
grown Denver of today. 

The watchword of the thousands of 
adventurous men who rushed for the 
golderusands of the unknown West, ac- 
cross the then barren and dangerous 
plains of Kansas. Nebraska and Col- 
orado, was "Pike's Peak or Bust." With 
many it was burst, but others, branch- 
ing out, made rich discoveries, started 
other camps, opened other mines, gained 
wealth and made possible Uncle Sam's 

great "Centennial State" 

• * • 

This city was named after Gen. Den- 
ver, who surveyed it in 1859. In that 
day it was 700 miles west of the nearest 
railroad, and reached only by stage. In 
1870 the place had lees than 5000 people. 

Today Denver has 135.000 people. 
£lght trunk lines of railway, with con- 
nections, aggregating over 26,iVXI miles 
of track, radiate from the place. Over 
100 trains are sent out of the Union 
depot daily. It is estimated that an 

average of 700 tourists visit Denver 
every day in the year. 

The city, is beautifully situated. It Is 
just rolling enough to give good drain- 
age. To the eastward are the great 
plains, with their almost countless 
herds of cattle and rapidly growing 
agricultural interests. To the westward 
the foothills of the Rocky mountains 
are about fourteen miles away. On tit 
days can be seen such grand and ancient 
sentinels over plain and valley as Pike's 
Peak, Longs' Peak, Gray's Peak and 
James' Peak, connected by the gleam- 
ing, serrated line of the Snowy Range. 
The elevation above the sea level is 5200 

The soil of Denver is loose and sandy, 
which, under the influence of the bright 
Colorado sun, quickly drinks up any fall 
of rain or snow. The streets in the 
business center are paved with asphalt. 
Wooden buildings are not allowed in 
any part of the city, all being of brick 
or stone. A maximum of sunny days, 
character of the soil, modern pave- 
ments, kept scrupulously clean, and ab- 
sence of dingy wooden buildings, give 
the city a remarkably and unusually 
bright, clean appearance. 
« . • 

There are two splendid street railway 
systems, aggregating 160 miles of track. 
Including suburban lines. Last year 
they carried 30,000.000 passengers. There 
are numerous drives of great beauty 
and many elegant turnouts. The topog- 
raphy of the place and the asphalt 
streets make wheeling an especially 
popular pastime. 

The postofflce building Is similar In 
size and architecture to those in St. 
Paul and Minneapolis and the old build- 
ing in Omaha. The state, located 
on Capital hill. Is a handsome granite 
structure. It occupies three blocks an.l 
cost $2..500.000. The mineral exhibit in 
the basement Is worth traveling around 
the world to see, and capable of occupy- 
ing one's attention for months, even. 

There are 80 schools of all kinds In 
Denver. There are 5S grade schools, 
with 22.000 pupils and 543 teachers. 
Twenty kindergartens have 1000 pupils. 
Three high .«chools are attended by 2100 
students. The normal training depart- 
ment of the central high school, with 365 
pupils and over .lO teachers, has a wide 
reputation. The entire value of school 
buildings is $3,000,000. The city is divided 
into three districts, each with its own 
superintendent. This is a costly and un- 
satisfactory system, and a change will 

be attempted. The school tax alone Is 
25 mills, which brings the entire tax up 
to about 50 mills. Denver would be the 
death of certain tax kickers and dodg'-'rs 
in Duluth. There are also a large nuai- 
ber of private and denominational 


* * . 

The City Park, comprising 320 acres, 
arouses almost as much local pride as 
the boulevard drive in Duluth. There 
are two zoological gardens, two of the 
finest theaters in the West, elegant 
churches, a large athletic club and costly 
club house and handsome public build- 
ings. The water supply comes from the 
mountains. There is a hydrastatic pres- 
sure of 700 feet and the water is ex- 
ceptionally pure. 

Rents, I think, are nearly as high as 
in Duluth. Living can be had some- 
what lower, if desired, and also much 
higher and better in price and quality. 
There is an abundance of "life" and 
much of the true American spirit. While 
the population is very cosmopolitan, 
English-speaking citizens predominate 
overwhelmingly, and very few foreign 
tongues are heard on the street or in 
the market place. 

There is much wealth here, and as a 
result, much social life and display. 
Money moves easily, and the tourists 
help any tightening or scarcity in the 
circulating medium. Denver is quite a 
"sporty" town. There are numerous 
clubs, dazzling and palatial saloons, 
high-priced drinks, big diamonds, gun 
clubs, fast horses and all the accessories 

of high and fast life. 

* . * 

Of course, mining has done much for 

Denver. This Is the real center of the 
industry In the state. There are brokers, 
"experts," assayers, capitalists, mine 
owners and operators galore. Mining is 
considered a manufacturing business 
and three huge smelters are located 
here. They are the Argo. Globe and 
Grant smelters. The Grant smelter has 
a chimney 325 feet high and 16 feet in 
diameter. It required 2,000,000 bricks, 
8480 bushels of lime, 1500 barrels of 
cement, 2231 yards of sand, 131,000 
pounds of iron, and cost $50,000. It is the 
highest chimney in the United States 
and the third highest in the world. 

Large plants are here for the manu- 
facture of mining machinery. Cotton 
mills, paper mills and packing plants 
send their products over a wide terri- 
tory. Other manufacturing enterprises 
represented are brewing, tanning, chem- 
icals, clay goods, flouring, leather, 
paints, soap, stone, textile, wood, etc. 
The following advantages as a manufac- 
turing center are claimed for Denver: 

First— Abundant and suitable raw ma- 
terials readily accessible. 

Second— Cheap fuel. 

Third— Abundant, Intelligent and 
skilled labor. 

Fourth— Rapidly growing market in 

its tributary territory.

Colorado has a gold-producing belt 
100 miles wide and 300 miles long and 
that means much to Denver. A new 
T'nJted States mint is being erected in 
Denver at a cost of $.S00,000. Since 1859 
Colorado has produced $230,000,000 
worth of gold. In 1899 Colorado mines 
paid $11,000,000 in dividends, or about 23 
per cent on the total output of the 

Naturally, Denver is a great banking 
center. Dec. 2, 1899, four national banks 
in Denver had $35,000,000 deposits, in a 
great degree representing profits in 
mining and live stock. This city is the 
headquarters for insurance, mortgage. 

emigration and investment companies 
for this part of the West, as well as 
most of the mining companies. To ac- 
commodate all these, immense business 
blocks have been erected. The Equit- 
able building, nine stories, white tile 
brick and granite, cost $2,000,000. It is 
just as fine a structure as you will see 
anywhere. The Boston building cost 
$400,000, and the Ernest & Cranner 
building, eight stories, granite and 

pressed brick, the same.

It is claimed that Denver's climate 
has drawn more residents and wealth 
than any other single thing. It surely 
is a great health resort and. it must 
be confessed, that the many who come 
here with weak lungs are somewhat a 
detriment. They seek life and health, 
are not able to live without work in 
many cases, hence are forced to work 
for such wages as they can get. At the 
same time, men in good health are in 

It is said that from July 20, 1872, to 
Feb. 22, 1885. there were but thirty-two 
days on which the sun failed to show- 
its face. The average tempearture of 
Denver is 49.1 degrees. (The average 
maximum is 79.2 degrees and the aver- 
age minimum 19.7 degrees. The aver- 
age number of sunny days, according to 
United States signal .service bureau, 340. 
The altitude and dryness of the atmos- 
phere minimize the heat to the extent 
of 22 degrees. To find the real, sensible 
summer heat, subtract 22 degrees from 

the recorded heat.

There Is quite a Duluth colony in 
Denver. Edward Siiberstein is prac- 
ticing law here. I called at his office 
and had a good visit. He had an ap- 
pearance of prosperity and ready money 
and gave me much information con- 
cerning other ex-Duluthians.

is now running the Lyceum theater in 
Denver. He does not expect to visit Du-

his face would be a welcome one there. 

The Laifjbert boys, brothers of Ma- 
dame Lambert, are in Colorado. One is

A. E. Humphreys. Frank Cox and S. 
W. Eckman made three of a kind here 
hard to beat. I have not seen them 
yet. but heard of them. 

Mrs. Gates, formerly Ida Boyce, has 
left Salt Lake City and now resides 
here. Ida Bowen, formerly a Duluth 
teacher, is married and lives here. Lucy 

Cullyford, now married, lives in Color-

In my next I shall try to tell a little 
about Colorado Springs, Manitou and 
Pikes Peak. 



Before the beginning of the civil war 
and for several years after the distinc- 
tion of the Southern states as those 
which produced and consumed a larger 
amount of spirituous liquors than any 
other group of states in the country was 
unchallenged, says the New York Sun. 
But since the close of the war a com- 
plete, palpable and very marked change 
has come almost Imperceptibly over 
the face of things in the South, and 
while Kentucky and Maryland continue 
to produce whisky in very large quan- 
tities, as warehouse returns of the 
United States treasury indicate, the 
larger part of the product of both 
states is shipped North. Comparatively 
little is sent South for consumption. In 
fact, the South is becoming the tem- 
perance section of the United States, 
and of 200,000 retail liquor dealers in 
the United States having licenses of 
various sorts, there are only 1000 in Ala- 
bama, 750 in Arkansas, 400 in Florida, 
1200 in Georgia, 350 In Mississippi, 1200 
in North Carolina, and 325 in South 
Carolina, and 325 in South Carolina, 
where the dispensary system prevails, 
and In which there has been a very 
marked reduction in the sales of liquor 
during recent years. 

Mississippi has had since 1892 a high 
license law- calling for a tax on each sa- 
loon of $600 a year, and there are now 
fewer saloons in that state than in some 
wards of New York or Brooklyn. Geor- 
gia has been since 1891 a high license 
state, with absolute prohibition in a 
majority of counties. In Atlanta 
there is now one liquor saloon only for 
each 1000 of population, and there is 
very much less drinking in Georgia 
than in any New England state, al- 
though climatic conditions account, 0£ 
course, for some part of this* North 
Carolina has a local license law which 
permits a majority of the electors in 
any locality to establish absolute pro- 
hibition, and the license rate in West 
Virginia is $250 for even the smallest 

It is not, however, so much in conse- 
quence of laws as of local custom to 
which these laws are responsive, that 
extensive drinking has fallen off in so 
many of the states of the South. Ther-3 
is, no longer in that section the large 
"leisure class" from which, in great 
measure, the most frequent drinkers 
were recruited. The problems conse- 
quent upon the closi; of the civil war 
made necessary many personal sacri- 
fices by Southern men, and the era fol- 
lowing reconstruction was not one 
favorable either to conviviality or dis- 
sipation. There are. relatively, few 
large cities in the Southern state.^, and 
the enormous improvement m railroad 
connection has had the effect of doing 
away with the necessity of long jour- 
neys by wagon or horseback such as 
marked the business life of the South 
during previous genc^rations. Compara- 
tively little liquor is drunk in the South 
at present, not much more beer and 
practically no wine. A state in which 
wine and whisk drinking has increased 
considerably is California. 

If you have a good business, advertise 
and keep it. If you have not, advertise 
In The Herald and get it.

Green and Black Are Now Very Popular In Paris, 

the Dull One In Black Being the 

Correct Thing. 

Paris. March 28.— Soft colors and desijfns 
* tn stripes will prevail In new spring toil- 
et*. The pastel colora are the rage, and 
tto brl^rht hues will be seen. Designs copied 
after old silks will be favorite ones with 
the smartest women, and the manufac- 
turers "f the new spring are copy- 
ing the materials of the restoration epoch 
with modern improvements in texture. 
Slike are particularly popular, and come In 
all kinds of bewildering but soft shades. 
Green and black seem to be the most 
popular colors, the dull tone In black be- 
ing ihe torre<t thing. Much of the suc- 
cess of the new gowns now depends upon 
the color combinations. A really well 
dfesso! woman must now be an artist, at 
least In a small way. She must know the 
shal1^'s which l)est suit her. the combina- 
tion of color in which there is the 
harmony, and the prevailing note must be 
chosen with an idea of enhancing the 
coloring ot the wearer. 

The modern woman who knows how to 
dress has mad*' di.<i( overies in regard to 
colors and those best adapted to herself 
which woulii have astonished her grand- 
mother. Many of the accepted theories 
In the matter fo color have been abso- 
lutely thrust aside by the up-to-date wo- 
man. She has learned that the old theory 
of blue for a blende and pink for a bru- 
nette Is a false one. To a large majority 
of blonde :yj»es pink and even re<i is dis- 
tinctly becoming. The same may l>e said 
of blue and the brunette typo. When the 
hair Is I hestnut in color there is no color 
•o becoming to brunette as every shade 
of pale or dark blue. It have seen bru- 
nette women absolutely transformed in 
a light blue gown, while what is known as 
"robin-fgst blue" has been adopted by 
Parisian women as the "couleur par ex- 
cellence" for dark women. 

Clever women who delight in wearing 
colors which wert- never intended for 
them arrange the whole toilet to make It 
becoming bv changing the color in the 
collar to suit the face. As an example of 
this. I noticed Addison, one of the 
smartest young women in I.,ondon, who Is 
now in Paris, recently wore a lavender 
silk taffeta gown to a reception which 
■would have been exf^edingly trving to her 
face, as she ha.'^ Titian red hair, had not 
the collar, an ingenious combination of 
blue and silver, been extremely becoming 
to her. thus saving the gown. Gray is 
tr>ing to many women, yet gray with a 
blue and silver or a rose and gold cillar 
can be worn with advantage, and 1;= a 
c^or which Is always charming. What 
comes next to the face should be care- 
fully studied an4 whm well taken into 
consideraiion a great many otht-r almost 
bold innovations in the matter of color 
mav be undertaken. 

The effect on the eyes of the pastel col- 
ors now adopted by women Is singularly 
restful. Nothing gtares in color, and a 
«roup of fashionable women in an after- 
noon tea room, a salon, or a theater form 
a harmonious ensemble. There is the same 
difference between the bright hued gowns 
of a few seasons ago and those of today 
as between the bright hues of a chromo 
ana th*' soft tones of a tapestry. Women 
are growing more artistic, th-^ de.'iire for 
shining, glittering effects Is passing and 
In every detail of the toilet. MOilern jew- 
elry is enhanced by "rems whirh throw into 
relief thf dead gold settings, and a new 
era of sulwlued has begun. 

The Parisian woman of all women takes 
Into consid»-ratlon where she Is going to 
■wear a sown before choosing i:. She will 
never think of wearing a hall gown made 
for a larg.^ nubile ball room, such as those 
of the fasMonablf> gallerks and mlnisteres 
to a soiree in a small or anart- 
ment. What looks, admirable in one place 
is fiulte the wrong thing In anoth<^r be- 
cau-^e of the surrounoines. r know clevel 
^omen who even tak<» Into consideration 
the light insr of the ball room where they

tricity st-lorting daring drs5;rnB in form 
and color, while for candle light, which 
still nrev lil^s in the "Faubourg," they 
choosp sf.fter effects. 

The on^-^tlon of surroundings is an im- 
portant one In clothes and exphiins why 
the American woman offon falls to suc- 
cessfnllv imitate th.^ Frenchwoman, and 
also why .^ many dresses opled faithfully 
from SO/ i^essful stag.- costumes fiiij to 
make th.> same shr^ing awav from the 
footlia:ht«. It is in all details that 
the PiirL^nn womnn Is an «^xpert, an<] in 
her attention to- them lies the secret of 
her great succe.'JS. 

The newest novelty In the prettiest 
spring toilets Is velvet sleeves In r loth 
dresses. The color of the ploth and that 
of the sleeves match perfectly. Onlv the 
finest ouality of veh-et can be u.sed in this 
way and there cannot be evnn the di- 
vergence of a shade in the color of the 
»l**ve arnl that of the gown. 

One of the most f harming costumes of 
this desi-rliKkm which I havf seen was 
worn during the w»ek by Mr.s. Frank 
Gardf-ner. ,i Ru.-«sian type "of beautv yi-ho 
Bings divinely and who is exceedingly 
popular in thi^ American cojcnv. The gown 
In ouestion was of soft fawn color pastel 
rloth. The skirt was made with plaits 
and nlain with a fl;ire at the bottom. The 
waist hal a .serie* of tiny plaits .^f-paratf^d 
by incrustations of handsomf lace. The 
Sleeves werf of velvet t>xacflv m;Mching 
In color the cloth of the gown. With thi-< 
Mrs. Gardiner wore a hat which was of 
tulle in lae .same shade as the dres.«. .\ 
graceful soray of roses and some lace 
were its only trimming. 

The trellis work In chenille Is growing 
more In favor. hTe entire bottom of 
skirts are trimmed with trellis designs lit 
chenille with the goods cut out from 
underneath, which makes it resemble 
openwork or lace. One gown particularly 
noticeable, which was worn by Mrs. GU- 
lett. of Illinois, was of gray pastel cloth. 
It had an entire row of chenille "incrus- 
tation," as the French say. around the 
bottom of the skirt. The cuffs of the 
sleeves and the bolero jacket were simi- 
larly trimmed. Here and there was a dash 
of blue, and the gown was remarkably 

For women who possess handsome Irish 
or Alencon point lace collars and cuffs, 
such as were seen upon little Lord Faon- 
tleroy when he was Invogue. and his 
counterpart existed in every fashionable 
home where there was a boy who could 
be thus attired, a new fashion has been 
intro<iuced which will enable them to uti- 
lize such treasures in lace to advantage. 
Smart twlero jackets have just appeared 
with these kind of lace collars and cuffs. 
They give a singularly youthful appear- 
ance to the wearer. 

A fur wrap, which will be worn clear up 
Into the .summer, is the new white baby 
lamb bolero, trommed with bands of black 
panne velvet, with a groat black velvet 
bow at the neck from which "aiguille t tea" 
or "sequins" dangle. 

Three-quarter coats In taffeta silk pro- 
fusely trimmed with chiffon will be the 
spring novelty for dress occasions, such 
as afternoon re<'eptions and the theater. 
A remarkably pretty one which I saw in 
a fashionable shop was of black taffeta, 
lined with a pale tint of old rose. Around 
the bottom was a sehies of chiffon ruffles 
and at the neck there was a graceful 
chiffon bow, which fell down in long flow- 
ing ends. 

A great deal of white will be worn for 
the spring In light cloths and silks, and 
upon tinb days entire white walking suits 
are seen in the. Bois. White is of course 
practical for Paris, but Is dellca.te for 
American cities, not much more so, how- 
ever, than the pale shades In gray, mauve 
and tan. 

Thf poke bonnet tied under the chin Is 
much affected by the ultra type of French 
women, particularly In the artistic set. 
There is, on the other hand, a tendency 
to wear all other styles of hats well tipptd 
up on the side or tilted back from the 
face, necessitating a carefully undulated 
coiffure and more or less brought down 
over the foreheal. Red hats are quite in 
vo.gue worn with black costumes. The size 
of hats has diminished. There is no longer 
any exaggeration: even the picture hat 
has left off a few Inches for the present 

I.,eather Is again much In favor as a 
trimming for cloth gown.s. T.,eather collars, 
cuffs and belts being added to some of the 

Quite a new fashion has been Introduced 
In underskirts which is too clever not to 
be popular. These skirts are made of 
muslin and lace, but have a wide silk 
flounce around the bottom, so that when 
the dress is lifted the effect is that of an 
exquisite silk and lace nettlcoat. This 
flounce unbuttons and can be taken off 
for washing. One can have any number of 
ruffles, which permits a variation in un- 
derskirt.s. which can be made to harmon- 
ize with the linings of gowns. Nothing 
more simple than this kind of a skirt can 
well be Imagined, yet it Is most effective. 
Ruffles for skirts, when deep, are tucked 
up and down instead of running around as 

Panne velvet in gay colors, with lace 
yokes, continues in favor for blouses to 
b*" worn under .jackets. A great deal of th" 
yellow lace Is used on these jackets, 
which Is put on in annlique style. 

The fashionable colors in gloves are 
changing Pastel colors have fouml thf^ir 
wa.v to uloves: white Is now much less 
worn with evening gowns. In.steaO, the 
soft ash gray, tan and other similar shad<-s 
are worn with everythinc but white 
towns. Fashionable griove dealers sav that 
the natural shades, particularlv in .'wiede 
gloves, are the onlv correct gloves to wear 
with colored evening eowns and for vis- 
iting gowns the same may be also said. 

The newest handkerchiefs have a tiny 
aonare In oi)en work in the corner, the 
oi>enings being held together by the Ini- 
tials, which are used for the marking. Ex- 
tremes In size prevail: mv lady s mou- 
choir is either exceedingly large or ex- 
tremely small. The tiny glove handker- 
chief is more anl more in favcr. and is 
beginning to r^-ove a serious rival for the 
old style mouchoir. 


Styles as Different as the 
Forest's Leaves. 

Paris. March 2S.— To Judge from the mod- 
els shown in the best shops Infinite vari- 
ety is likely to characterize the coming 
millinery. There are high crijwns. low 
crowns, and crowns so flat as to scarcely 
deserve the name; toques, picture hats, 
capelines, large hats, .small hats, every- 
thing In short. The favorite shnpe with 
the iirtistic milliners is the flat capeline, 
the pancake, as the Kngllsh call it. This 
they takf and mold to suit their custom- 
ers, each one turning the brim up or 
bending It down, punching it in or pinching 
it out. until the proper frame for the 
face is achieved: the result being that 

French hats, with all their general simi- 
lar! t v. are as different as the leavea of the 
forest. ' 

The newest material for hats is a re- 
vival; the Neapolitan braid,, which waa so 
dear to our grandmothers and to their 
m.others before them. It Is woven of 
horsehair, and Is a most dainty foundation 
for a hat, light as a feather and as airy 
In appearance as tulle Itself, while in 
reality it Is wiry, tough and serviceable. 
It can be crumpled Into any shape desired, 
and It comes In all shades. When swatheil 
with tulle and set with flowers. In true 
Parisian style. It la simply captivating. 

Large hats are beinsr made by a well 
known milliner on the Rue de la Palx, the 
crowns composed of small, soft feathers 
sewed on with one overlapping another In 
every shade to match the costume. Soft 
twists of tulle and a bird to match form 
the original trimming. 

Hats ail of flowers are much liked. At a 
recent muslcale two pretty American sis- 
ters wore large flat toques, wide in front 
and slightly curved on the sides, entirely 
comiv)sed of white Parma violets. The ef- 
fect was charming, for the black velvet 
bandeaux under the toque rested upon 
beautiful golden hair, faultlessly dressed, 
low on the nock, and waved over the smatl 
ears of the wearers. Near them was Mme. 
Haoul Duval. Mrs. Cora Urquhart Pot- 
ter's sister. In an equally novel headgear, 
a flat hat, of coarse rice straw, worn low 
down on the head, and trimmed with black 
velvet, soft tulle and large white chry- 

Therf is a great fancy for Brobdlnag 
blossoms, a fancy which Is the natural 
outcome of the furore for the hcou. On 
many of the new hats there Is only one 
flower, as large as a good-sized .saucer, 

Corsage made of white gauze ribbon, 
woven. Yoke and collar of embroidered 
white batiste. White chiffon draped 
over revere and allowed to fall jabot 
fa.'^hion. Narrow black velvet trim- 

and thlg is sometimes enlarged by en- 
circling folds of tulle or gauze. Block roses 
of velvet or satin, with gohien centers, ap- 
pear on many of the new hats, while hy- 
drangf-a blossoms and huge white snow- 
balls i>eep out of the folds of tulle which 
velope others. Toques take many shapes, 
enyeloi>e others. Toques take many shapes, 
the newest being more In the liature of 
a turban. In one thing the Parisian woman 
is sui>erior to all others, she never wears 
an unbecoming bonnet. She will try on 
shai)e after sliapt- half the day, or all day. 
If necessary, until she finds or creates one 
to suit, and she is to the full as difficult 
to suit with re;jar(l to the trimming. 

There are three skirts which are rivals 
for favor— the corselet, the skirt with 
shaped flounce, and the fully gored skirl, 
trimmed more or less, or not at all. The 
fashionable women of the American col- 
ony show a marked fancy for sh'ealh 
skirts, with stitched ban<is covering the 
shaped flounce on the foot. It must be 
supposed, however, that these are the 
only stylt^s. For Indoors empire gnwn.« 
retain all their prestige, and the vogi%^of 
the directory Is on the Increase rather 
than the wane. 

Moreover there is a marked effort to In- 
troduce the polonaise. At present this 
effort Is moderate in Its entering wedge, 
the polonaise chiefly taking the form of 
an upper skirt, slightly raised at the left 
side to show an underskirt. A recent model 
was of a nlnklsh-brown vicuna, nearly ap- 
proaching the tint which appears in earlv 
spring upon t*'" bark of young trees. 
Tho upi>er skirt, cut in one with thj 
bodice at the back, was draped on the side 
over a petticoat of stitched ivory cloth, 
hie narrow pointed bolero fronts showed 
a closed vest of Ivory cloth, with a high 
waistband of old-rose velvet. There were 
awo collars of the vicuna, one attached 
tr) the bolero and standing out well over 
the bend of the shoulders, while the r.ther 
was that of the waistcoat. The sleeves 
were the ordinary bishop shape, with the 
fullness at the wrists set into straight 
l>ancl cuffs. 


It Is Ridiculed By Officials at 

Washington, April 6.— The officials of 
the interior department are not alarmed 
over the .situation on the Chippewa 
reservation in Minnesota, and they treat 
lightly the reports to the effect 
that Red Blanket and other prominent 
Indians of the Bear I.sland band have 
presented grievances to Governor Van 
Sant in connection with the dead and 
down operations. 

Indian Commissioner Jones said he 
was cognizant of the fact that ^reen 
timier had been cut during the winter, 
but he said it wfc in such small quan- 
tities as not to justify the widespread 
criticism in Minnesota of Agent Mer- 
cer's administration. 

He explained further that in every 
case where operators had been detected 
in cutting green timber, the camps had 
been closed and green timber prices de- 
manded and received. 

The commissioner also shows figures 
he has received from Agent Mercer and 
Mr. Farr, the logging superintendent, 
showing that the prices received for 
dead and down timber this winter are 
fully 100 per cent in excess of those paid 
two years ago. 

As to the complaint of the Indians 
with reference to allotments, the condi- 
tions on the reservation are in large 
part, the commissioner explains, due to 
the indifference of the Indians. Most 
of the Indians refuse to accept the al- 
lotments, and Red Blanket and others 
who are now loudest in their complaints 
are not living on them. 

The commissioner takes a shy at for- 
mer Commissioner Baldwin, saj'ing the 
present condition of the allotments is 
a legacy of his administration. 


.J '\\ — 
Trade Has Maintained 
an Even Course the 
Past Week. 

New York. AprU 6.— Dun's weekly re- 
view of trade says: 

While the general business world has 
looked with amazement at the perfor- 
nnance of the stook market, trade has 
maintained its even course, and there 
are many more points of gain than of 
loss, with even a slightly steadier tone 
In the dry goods market. There some 
sellers have withdrawn offers at recent 
low prices, though buying is small as 
yet. Collections in all lines are unusu- 
ally prompt, and in the building trades 
contracts have been entered into suf- 
ficiently to furnish a decided impetus in 
allied lines during the spring season. 

No sign of lessening demand is per- 
ceptible in any branch of the iron and 
steel Industry. Mills are accepting con- 
tracts for the closing months of the 
year, and there Is every indication that 
1901 will surpass all records in the 
the quantity of pig iron consumed by 
manufacturers Though capacity has 
been wonderfully enlarged during the 
paet five months, there are still many 
extensions and new plants contemplat- 

It is also probable that the customary 
summer repairs of furnaces and mills 
will be accomplished within a shorter 
period than usual, as contracts call for 
heavy deliveries right through the sea- 
son. Permanence of prosperity in this 
industry is becoming more certain as 
there is less evidence of inflated prices. 
Regular quotations "have not altered, 
except for bars and foundry pig iron, 
although all sorts of premiums are paid 
where prompt shipment is required. 
Although fewer ovens are active in the 
Connellsville region than a year ago, 
the output is much larger, and about 
3,000.000 tone were made during the 

Shipments of boots and shoes from 
Boston are steadily increasing the last 
week's movement reaching 94.453 cases, 
against 92,975 in the previous week and 
89,034 a year ago. Quotations are steady 
but it is feared that the recent declines 
in leather and hide« will make it pos- 
sible for the small shoe manufacturers 
to cut prices when they are compelled 
to seek new business. An unexpected 
demand has appeared for russet shoes, 
equalling last year's business, despite 
the fact that these lines were consid- 
ered less popular. 

The circular of Coates Bros, on April 
1 made the average of 100 grades of wool 
17.99 cents, a decline of nearly a cent 
since March 1, and 5^ cents, compared 
with April, 1900. During the past two 
weeks, however, the market has 
steadied, and there is much more trad- 
ing. Moderate tfeiying is done by 
worsted mills. » 

After declining \^ithiii a sixteenth of 
4 cents, it was not ^urp^sing to see cot- 
ton recover half & cent. The ovei-aold 
condition of the i)ecujative market 
was chiefly respofisibl^ and Southern 
dispatches gave support by state- 
ments of unfavorable planting condi- 
tions. Supplies wire against any pro- 
nounced rise In price, however. and 
conditions continua extremely depress- 
ing. Aggressive manipulation of corn 
forced prices to aa unceas<jnal)le point, 
from which the fku was severe; and 
wheat also weakened, although exports 
from the Atlantic coast continued too 

Commercial failures in the first quar- 
ter of 1901 were 3335 in number and 
131.703.486 in amount of defaulted li- 
abilities, of which 710 were in manu- 
facturing for *12.504,a22 and- 2468 in 
trading for $14,552,906 with 157 others 
not properly included In either class, 
that owed $4,646,.358. Banking defaults 
numbered twenty-one with liabilities of 
$3,441-,389. While exceeding the same 
three months of last year in number, 
failures were much smaller in amount, 
commercial and financial insolvencies 
together showing a decrease of $21,- 

Only two years of the last twenty 
made a better showing either In aggre- 
gate or average indebtednes."* to each 
failure, while the proportion of $26.74 to 
each firm in business and $1.09 to each 
$1000 of insolvent payments through 
clearing houses are records that were 
surpassed but once in two decades. For 
the month of March total liabilities 
were much smaller than In the corre- 
sponding month of any year since 
monthly statements were first pub- 
lished. These figures indicate most 
undeniably that the new century has 
opened with business of no uncertain

Many of the delightful old observances 
attached to Eastertide have become al- 
most obsolete. The practice of serving 
special kinds of bread and cakes on cer- 
tain days is still kept up by those who 
love the oldtime customs. 

The list of these breads and cakes con- 
sidered appropriate, or having any sig- 
nificance inconnectlon with the days, is 
not very varied, being confined to pan- 
cakes, fritters and buns. But Ignoring 
the meaning attached to all observances 
of this season, we may take the same lib- 
erty In this line, as we do in choosing 
other dishes to serve during the i_K>nten 
season. If we still observe the "eternal 
fitness of things' In the selection of the 
materials composing them. 


These, to be strictly orthodox, should be 
served only on Shrove Tuesday and on 
Good Friday; but are In keeping for 
luncheons all through Lent, especially on 
Wednesdays and Fridays. 


Break six eggs into a bowi and beat un- 
til very light. Allow to each egg a gill 
of milk, an eight of a teaapoonful of 
salt and about an ounce (quarter of a 
cup) of flour. Sift flour into a bowl. Make 
a well in the center and add the eggs and 
milk gradually, nixing to a smooth bat- 
ter. If eggs are large a little more flour 
may be necessary. The batter must be 
the consistency of thick cream. 

Place a smooth Iron frying pan on the 
fire; see that It is perfectly clean and 
smooth or the pancake will stick. When 
pan is hot put in a small piece of sweet 
butter. When it is melted pour in just 
enough l>atter to coverb the bottom of the 
pa,n: about half a cup for a pan five 
inches in diameter. If made thin enough 
they need not be turne<l. When done 
sprinkle over with powdered sugar, roll 
it up In the pan and take out with large 
cake turner. Place on a hot dish before 
the fire until you have sutficlent quantity 
fried to serve. They are better ser\-ed a"s 
soon as fried. A little grated iemon or 
orange rind may be added to the batter 
or sifted with the sugar. 

If the whites of the eggs are beaten sep- 
arately and added to batter the last thing 
the pancaJces will be lighter. Allow four 
or five minutes for the very thin pancake 
and six or eight for the thicker one. Very 
rich pancakes ar© made with eggs, cream, 
sugar, sherry, grated nutmeg and flour. 

Measure a cupful of sifted flour and sift 
into a mixing bowl with a level teaspoon- 
ful of salt. Beat the yolk of one egg with 
a tableapoonful of good salad oil; mix 
these gradually into the flour by making 
a well in the center of the flour and add- 
ing egg an oil. When the batter Is smooth 
add gradually enough water to make a 
batter thick enough to hold a drop let fall 
from the mixing spoon. Beat whites of 
the eggs to a smooth froth and fold 
lightly into the batter. Put two or three 
slices of orange Into this batter; cover 
them well and then slide into hot fat ana 
fry a golden brown. Remove with a skim- 
mer or wire egg whip; dust with pow- 
dered sugar and serve hot. 

Mix to a smooth batter two cups of 
flour and two cups If milk and the yolks 
of two eggs; add a level teaspoonful of 
salt. If you do not possess iron popover 
pans butter six little earthen custard 
cups and place in a pan in a hot oven. 
Beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth 
and fold lightly and qulc. • into the bat- 
ter. Fill the hot, buttered cups about half 
full of batter and bake until they are 
brown and perfectly light when handled. 
These can be served for breakfast, eaten 
with butter, or for luncheon or dinner as 
a dessert, using a good sweeet sauce or 
maple syrup. 


Heat to scalding point one pint of milk 
with a large tabkspoonful of butter, a 
tablespoonful of sugar, a level teasi>oonful 
of salt. Turn Into a bowl and when luke- 
warm add half a yeast cake dis.solved in 
a little lukewarm water. Beat in flour 
enough to have rather a thick btter; beat 
for five minutes until full of bubbles, th^n 
add flour to make a dough. Knead for 
at least ten minutes, until the dough is 
smooth and elastic to the touch. Set in 
a moderately warm place and let rise for 
four hours; watch that It does not get 
too light. Knead down well; take pieces 
of dough about size of an egg, roll out 
on board, having the roll about an inch 
thick In the middle and pointed at each 
end. Place some distance apart in well- 
buttered tins; caver and let rise for an 
hour; then bake in a Jiuick oven. 

Two pounds of sifted flour, two cups of 
sugar, two cups of currants, half a tea- 
spooful of salt and a teaspoonful of mixed 
spices. Mix these all together in a bowl. 
Make a hole in the center and add half a 
pint of warm milk and half a cake of 
yeast dissolved in half a cup of lukewarm 
water. Mix slowly into the flour until 
you have a smooth, thin batter; cover and 
set In a warm place until light, then add 
half a i)ound melted butter and milk 
enough to make a soft do'ugh of all the 
flour; cover this with a thin coating of 
Hour and let rise once more for half an 
hour. Shai>e into buns and lay them far 
apart In buttered tins. Cover and set to . 
rise for half an hour. Just before going 
in the oven make a cross on each one by 
pressing the back of a knife almost en- 
tirely through the dough. Bake in a quick 
oven for ten or fifteen minutes. 

Take one and one-half cups of granulat- 
ed sugar and sift twice, one cup of flour 
sifted four times, the whites of eleven 
eggs, a teaspoonful of vai>llla and half a 
teaspoonful of cream tartar. 

Add a pinch of salt to the whites and 
beat them about half stiff, then add the 
cream tartar and continue whipping until 
eggs are very stiff: sprinkle the sugar in 
lightly, then add the flavoring, beat in; 
then fold in the flour as lightly as possi- 
ble; sprinkling it in, a spwjnful at a time. 
Do not stop beating nr folding until ready 
for the pan. Pour into an ungreased pan 
and bake In a moderate oven for forty 


Make a loaf cf angel cake by above

Michael Pupin Had Neither 
Money or English to Start. 

Professor Pupln of Columbia university, 
who has recently gained International rep- 
utation as the inventor of the ocean tele- 
phone, ia the hero of a rer^arkable ca- 
reer, says the New York World. 

Few men even in America have risen so 
quickly and in the face of so many cb- 
fctacles as he. The man who has an- 
nounced the greatest invention sin<e the 
telephone came to New York In lbT4, al- 
most penniless and without a word of 
English. In twenty-six years he has be- 
come an authority on electricity, a profes- 
sor in Columbia university and dispose.'? of 
a single one of his inventions for JoW.CxJO. 

By birth. Professor Pupin Is a Slay, com- 
ing from the military frontier of Austria. 
He was raised in the same district froan 
which Tesla came. According to Pro- 
fessor Pupin. his ancestors have been so 
busy fighting Turks for generations that 
they hfid no time for self-cuture. 

Michael Idvorsky Pupin, like all young 
men of his country, was sent to a military 
school. He studied for a time In Prague 
and ran away to America in 1874. The ap- 
pearanuce of New York struck the young 
Slav with terror. He was unable to ask 
for a direction, and even business seemed 
barred against him. He was without a sin- 
gle friend. 

Like most Immigrants in his position, he 
went to the country and began work on 
a farm as a day laborer. Within a month 
he had learned to speak enough EuKlish 
to warrant him returning to New York. 
His teacher was the daughter of the farm- 
er who employed him. The lessons fol- 
lowed the long day's work and usually 
lasted till far past midnight. 

The next five years saw a severe strug- 
gle. Pupln worked at anything and every- 
thing which would yield an honest living. 
I', is said that at one time he even worked 
as masseur in a Turkish bath establish- 

During thlg period of struggle, however, 
he manjiged to attend night school at 
Cooper Union. 

Success came more quickly to him than 
to most. His fortune dates from his inven- 
tion of a holder of newspapers. Every- 
one is fa^nlllar now with the wooden 
forms used for binding newspapers to- 
gether. Profes.eor Pupln's holder was the 
first to be Introduced. He peddled them 
about town at ftr-st himself. The nr»t 
frame he sold was at the Vienna cafe, on 
Broadway. The demand for them so In-

creased that he could afford to employ 

agents to sell them. The little venture 
yleidea s'-veral thou.sand dnllars' profit. 
Pupin immediately prepared himself for 
Columbia, entering the college in I«>79. He 
graduated In 1883. 

While still supporting himself Pupin 
v>;.it to the university of Cambrdige, Eng., 
and afterward to Berlin, where he spe- 
calzled under the famous Professor Helni- 
holiz. He took his degree of Ph. D. with 
honor In Berlin, returned to New York 
and wa-s appointed an instructor at Co- 
lumbia In 1SS9, When the electrical en- 
gineering department was started at Co- 
lumbia he was placed In charge. 

Professor Pupln has been known for 
years as arf>ractlcal electrician. 

The Importance of Professor Pupln's lat- 
est discovery can scarcely be overestimat- 
ed. It Is of immense value apart from the 
fact that It lengthens the lines of tele- 
phone communication. The invention en- 
ables telephone circuits to be connected 
over ordlnar.v telegrraph ^drea. Telephone 
wires heretofore have been of copper, in 
New York alone the difference in the cost 
of cojjper and Iron wire used amounts to 
a fortune. By combining this discovery 
with Prof«i.ssor Pupln's method of u.slng 
one wire for several messages a single 
wire will do the work of ten wires under 
the present system, and do It better. It

"A Midsummer Night's 
Dream" at Lyceum. 

"The Prisoner of Zenda" 
Monday Night. 

This afternoon the James-Kidder com- 
pany presented "A Midsummer Night's 
Dream" at the Lyceum, and tonigtit it 
■win again be seen. Wagenhals and 
Kemper have given the play one of the 
isodt sumptuous settings of any Shake- 
spearean revival in recent years. A 
special feature is the panorama, 315 feet 
Icng^. which is used ta illustrate the 
dream of a grand ballet, under the di- 
rection of Professor Dare, and ttie spe- 
cial Mendenssohn music makes it the 
most prolific revival yet attempted. The 
production is embellished with magniii- 
cent costumes, costly and elaborate 
draperies, properties and furniture, all 
carried by the management. A company 
of exceptional ability surrounds the 
stars. Miss Kidder is seen as Helena, a 
character in v.hich she Lias more than 
equaled all her preceding triumphs. Mr. 
James plays Bottom in a manner that 
leaves little to be desired, and the high- 
est praise is given him everywhere. 
Miss Jane Oaker assays the role of 
Hermina, Norman Hackett, Lysander, 
Robert Ryan Demeterous. Ethel Brown- 
ing,, the Puck, Ashley Miller, the Obercn, 
Ira Brooks as Titania and Thomas 
Coffin CoDke as Quince. Other members 
of the company include artists of repu- 
tation and ability. 

Of the few plays that are :onsidered 
■worthy of securing a place in modern 
literature, the people's and critics' fav- 
orite, "The Prisoner of Zenda" takes 
precedence over all other works of re- 
cent years, for its many commendable 
attributes tend to permit it to percolate 
Into the archives of permanency, not 
only as a literary gem, but as the 
teacon light of that new echool of 
writers of which Anthony Hope is cer- 
tainly the high priest. In formulating 
this romantic and fas>:inating story he 
has swept away the dead leaves from 

to favorable consideration, fills the role 
to the best of her adaptiveness. The 
play was not written expressly for Miss 
Shannon, and presumably the difficulty 
which Mr. Sayre .encountered in writing 
his play was to avoid a repetition of the 
same ohjections which were raised over 
the stage version of Daudet's "Sapho." 
The play will prohably hold the atten- 
tion of the public for some time. 

The story as used by Mr. Sayre dea's 
with the love of Manon Lescau't for the 
Chevalier des Grieux and the rivalry 
between the Count de Varney and the 
dissolute Marquis de Synnelet for her 
favor. The plot opens at the point 
where the chevalier is about to become 
a priest, when he sees Manon and leaves 
the church to live with her. 

The martinis is still infatuated with 
Mancn and decider to win her by hook 
or crook. He uses all his power to bring 
influence to bear upon Manon, so that 
she will be compelled to leave the chev- 
alier. Finding her position, as she be- 
lieves, untenable, Manon determines to 
commit suicide. A brawl suddenly oc- 
curs in the gambling house, where the 
scene Is centered, and the chevalier 
kills a brother of Madame Pompadour, 
the reigning court favorite. The action 
then becomes rapid. The chevalier 
etscapes. but is, of course, a fugitive 
from justice. 

De Synnelet pursues her with atten- 
tion.s, and Du Varney taunts her with 
her past. She shoots Du Varney and 
has a narrow escape and tlies with lier 
lover, the chevalier, to Louisiana. 

In the last act the ill-starred couple 
are seen living happily in a hut in the 
penal settlement at New Orleans. They 
are about to i^ married and settle down 
to a life of undi<i5turbed conjugal tender- 
ness when the Marquis de Synnelet ar- 
rives in America from France and shat- 
ters their dream. Manon and the chev- 
alier escape and make a desperate at- 
tempt to reach the English settlement 
of Jamestown. 

They have travelled many miles upon 
their way when de Synnelet is found to 


the pathway of literary progress and 
given to the world one of the most novel 
and unconventional tales ever conceived 
In the brain of man. The dramatization 
|jy Edward E. Rose, that eminent Eng- 
lishman, has been equally as successful, 
and is today considered in the theatrical 
■world one of the most valuable pieces of 
property before the public. This sea- 
son's production is noteworthy in many 
respects, for It not only comes here with 
a cast of exceptional strength, but with 
the complete scenic investment and ela- 
borate stage effects which characterized 
Its phenomenal run at the Lyceum the- 
ater. New York city. The company is 
composed of several of the players of its 
former successful tour, and others who 
«re well known in stageland. prominent 
among whom are Vaughan Glaser. Ruth 
Aldridge, Robert Connes. Helen Strick- 
land George \V. Lynch. Cecil Owen, 
Marion Daniels, Willis Page, etc. The 
ecenery, costumes and effects are prom- 
ised to eclipse in magnificence any for- 
mer presentation of this popular and 
fascinating romance. 

'The Prisoner of Zenda" wUl be at the 
Lyceum Monday. 

There is a marked streak of originality 
in the piece. It is thoroughly whimsical, 
and Miss de Wolfe and E. M. Holland as 
Grace Elllston and Arnold Daly thor- 
oughly carry out all the dainty little 
paints of the situation. 

They are supposed to be old-time de- 
scendant sweethearts who annually for 
a century and a quarter had haunted a 
certain chamber in an old English castle. 
The loving pair enter the room to 
breathe their love outpourings to one 
another while a masked ball Is In pro- 
gress downstairs. They are reminded of 
a story that a forefather of the young 
man had there murdered a foremother 
of the young woman. On the wall is an 
old inscription stating that until a son 
of the one and a daughter of the other 
shall pledge their loves in that very 
room, the old curse on the crime must 

At this Juncture the twin ghosts, white 
clad and spectrally lighted, arise 
through the floor and the plot becomes 
clear. The subsequent developments; 
the clever mixing of old-time drollery 
and modern persiflage are so well 
worked in together that the half hour 
which the piece occupies Is a very pleas- 
ant time. 

N. C. Goodwin and Maxine Elliott will 
appear in the characters of Shylock and 
Portia in the coming revival of "The 
Merchant of Venice," to be made under 
the direction of Klaw & Erlanger and 
business guidance of Joseph Brooks, be- 
ginning Monday evening. May 6, at 
Syracuse, then completing the following 
extensive tour: Rochester, Buffalo, 
Chicago, St. Louis. Louisville, Indian- 
apolis, Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, 
Pittsburg, Washington, Baltimore, 
Philadelphia. New York. Brooklyn, New 
Haven. Hartford, Providence and Bos- 
ton. These cities will probably be played 
in the order named. All these engage- 
ments, excepting those In New York, 
Chicago, Boston and Cleveland, are for 
one performance only. 

The production of "The Merchant of 
Venice" will be of even greater magni- 
tude than the all-star revival of "The 
Rivals," made some years ago by Joser.h 
Brooks, which attracted widespread at- 
tention. More than $30,000 will be ex- 
pended in pre.senting it. Besides a re- 
markably talented supporting cast, there 
will be an auxiliary company of fifty 
people who will appear in the great en- 
semble scenes. The scenery and cos- 
tumes are now being made from models 
and designs by F. Richard Anderson. 
The musical features will be under the 
direction of Frederick Ecke, the con- 
cert master of the Metropolitan Opera 

This appearance of Mr. Goodwin ana 
Miss Elliot in a great Shakespearian re- 
vival is not contemplated as a commer- 
cial project. It is intended solely as a 
contribution to the artistic side of the 
American stage. Under no circum- 
stances will more than $2 be asked for 
the best seats in any city. 


Mr. Sayre's Adaptation o! 
Abbe Prevost's Novel. 

New York. April 6.— (Special to The 
•Herald.) — One of the most interesting 
events of the present dramatic situation 
le the presentation at Wallack's theater 
of "Marion Lescaut/' the latest drama- 
tized version of the Abbe Prevost'a 
cla.ssic novel, which has been made by 
Theodore Burt Sajre 

'Ik|ft{ Freeman is re.sponsli>le for the 
8\&eing of the play, and it is very nicely 
put on. 

Miss Eflle Shannon has the title roie, 
Vlth Herbert KeUey as the Chevalier 
Crieiix. Shannon, work 
firlth the Lyceum company entitles her 

be In pursuit. Manon's strength gives 
out and she dies in her lover's arms as 
day dawns. 

Herbert Kelcey's acting Is all that 
could be desired of that finished actor 
and Miss Shannon will undoubtedly en- 
hance her reputation when she has 
studied the part a little more closely. 
In her comedy scene she was particu- 
larly good, but a little too modern for 
the age in which the scene of the play 
Is laid. 

George Lederer's idea of creating a 
mammoth temple of popular priced 
amusement may or may not be con- 
summated but, forms one of the lead- 
ing topics of conversation In theatrical 
circles. The program will Include the 
presentation of circus features, varleiy 
rnlni.stielsy, ballet, burlesque, and opera. 

The newly-Incorporated Ledeier com- 
pany will also direct Miss El-=i;e de 
Wolfe's next tour season. Another play 
by Clyde Fitch, entitled "The Way of 
the Worid," is to be the piece in which 
Miss de Wolfe will star. She will he 
supported by the best company that Mr. 
Ledcrer can secure. A prominent Eng- 
lish actor has already been engaged as 
her leading man. 

Mr. Lederer considers "The Way of the 
World" one of the strongest things that 
Mr. Fitch has ever written. He says in 
reference to the management of Miss ie 
Wolfe and the handling of the play: "I 
believe In the star system, and certainly 
think that Miss de Wolfe should be 
starred. Mr. Fitch's new play is a very 
strong one and lends itself to elaborate 
scenic production. AUgs de Wolfe will 
spend the summer in Europe, returning 
early in September for rehearsals, to be 
con'iiicted under the personal direction 
of Mr. Fitch. The first production prob- 
ably will be made in Washington about 
the middle of October. Mi§js de Wolf§ ig 
now appearing in a cleverly constructed 
burlesque entitled "The Shades of 
Night," which takes the precedence of 
"The Lash of the Whip" at the Lyceum. 
It is a 1-act play or phantasy, written 
by Capt. R. Marshall, around t£ie some- 
what gruesome character of ghosts. 


An Australian Manager Visit- 
ing In Gotham. 

New York, April 3.— Tlie most prominent 
theatrical figure of the week was J. C. 
Williamson, the Augustln Daly of Aus- 
tralia. He spent much of his tlnie on 
Broadway, chaperoned bv Marcus Mayer. 
Thev saw everything, and WlUlamso.a says 
he has enjoyed New York to the limit. Of 
hlB home country he said: 

"You Americans are clever, but some- 
times you overlook some big things. 
There's Nance O'Neill. You had her In 
New York, and, while several critics said 
she was all right, your managers wouldn t 
line her and she had to do one-night 
stands In the country. She came to Aus- 
tralia for three weeks, and when she fin- 
ishes this season under my management 
her time on the Australian stage will 
amount to twenty months. We thmk she 
Is one of America's leading actresses, and 
you will, too, when she gets back. 

"Before I forget It 1 want It on record 
•that 1 was born In PennsylvaJila, and 
spent nearly 20 years on the stage in the 
United States t)efore I went to Australia. 
My first New York appearance was with 
Lester Wallack's stock company. That 
waa truly a wonderful aggregation: Les- 
ter Wallack, John Gilbert. Charles Fisher, 
Mark Smith, George Holland. Mary Gam- 
Ion Mrs. Hoey and Fanny Morant. It was 
In 18H2 that I went to Australia and there 
drifted Into managing." 

Mr Williamson at home is manager of 
Her Ma««»rTty s» theater. Melbourne, and 
Her Majesty's and the Theater Royal in 
Sydney. He controls a circuit in other 
towns, and has a dramatic company, a 
musical comedy company, and Is forming 
a grand opera company Into the bargain. 
He has secured the rights to "Florodora," 
"The Messenger Boy" and "San Tviy," and 
hag almost completed negotiations with 
George Lederer for the Australian rights 
to all his new productions. He w^ill take 
a number of American actors away when 
he sails for home. 

New York has been captured by that 
song In "Florodora," "Tell Me, Prrtty 
Maiden," but very few who whistle it on 
the streets known that the composer once 
before kept them busy. That was when 
he gave them "Louisana Lou." Leslie 
Stuart l3 the only man In England who 
has written coon songs that have been 
imported here. Still, he is not an Eng- 
ll.shman. but a son of Erin, whose real 
name Is no means as attractive as his 
name of the pen. About a year or more 
since he sot all England singing his "Sol- 
diers of the Queen," and It spread to 
all the colonies, but. curlou.sly enough, 
was seldom heard In the I'nlted States. 

"I often find It the hardest work In the 
world." said Margaret Anglln the other 
day. "to go to the theater with the thought 
of going through all those same lines over 
arf over a^ain. I feel just like getting on 
a train and never coming back." Her ro'e 
in "Mrs Dane's Defense ' Is probably the 
most trvlng that has been given an act- 
ress In New York for some years, and It 
has been a wonder to her friends that she 
has not broken down ere this. Blanche 
Bates, the Cigarette of "I'nder Two 
Flags." is also weary of her role, and. al- 
though her acting is as excellent as ever, 
she imagines that the audience looks upon 
her as "wooden and monotonous." 

Dan Dalv l.<' the delieht of his manager's 
heart In that he i." letter perfect at all 
times when the play Is on. But once he 
takes a new part everything he has done 
before Is wined out from his memory. He 
was entertaining a party of friends one 
evening recently when somebody asked 
for a sone Dalv had sung in "The Bolle 
of New York." He tried hard, but he 
couldn't remember more than the first 
line. and. although prompted by a com- 
poser who. was precont. he had to give it 
un. Thexe wa« a rumpus one night when 
"The Cadet Girl" was at the Herald 
Square, and Ludwlg Englander took all 
hi.': song.q from the play. There was a 
great hustle, and an old song of Daly's 
was given to the orchestra. He had to 
sing it standing against the scener>' while 
tlie stage manager read the words to him. 
So well was It done, however, fhiU no one 
in the audience guessed the truth. 

Fritz Williams will have a flinsr at all 
his old surcessJes this season before he 
leaves the mnnapement of Charles Froh- 
man to ioln the Weber and Fields outfit. 
"On and OfT' will be the first revival, 
with E. M. Holland and K.ithcrlne Flor- 
encf> to assist. Lee Harrison will keep 
Fritz William's Company In burlesque. 
Thc.v. with Sam Bernard, will be the new 
comers when Weber and Fields reopen. 
The company ■will close its New York 
season in three weeks, and then will 
start on a short tour, which will include 

"Thf Price of Peice" has had to be vifr- 
orously remodeled to suit American auH- 
ences. One of th'^ principal hits in the 
T»ndon production was a hospital scene 
where a wronsred man dies ■with startling 
re.'Oism. It ■was erreeted with thunders of 
applause bv thei English gallery, and 
gave every 'Arrlet ivho saw it the mate- 
rial for hours of delightful discussion on 
death. But it was too grewsome for New 
York, and had to be cut out entirely. 
There Is a remjjkable bit Of sta^e set- 
ting In the second act, an ice-skating rink 
sceno. It snows dozens of persons on real 
trc> skates, and many of them actuallv 
skating. There Is no ice. but a curved 
board walk has been designed, and on 
this the BkateT«s wol*le with a motion 
that, from the aiMllence. is perfect. An- 
other feature Is practically a reproduc- 
tion of the Episcopal wedding service. 'l>e 
actor who plays the archdoacon came 
very near beinff famous. He plays two 

piacea opposite ii on tn^ prograjn. x nen 
n© chose a high-sounding clerical name 
for the other part. ■tTwo critics mentioned 
the archdeacon with the stage name, and 
predicted a future for him, but, alas, all 
wer» silent on that member of iiarllamenr, 
who Is very, very sad. 

Dr. Joseph Mulr's career as a managing 
angel has comie to an abrupt halt, and he 
Is on the ocean wave headed for Stock- 
holm, where he Is to be acting consul 
for Uncle Sam. He was a memt)er of the 
Lamba and New York Athletic club, and 
was visiting physician at the German hio«- 
pltal. He was also noted as aji adept 
In hypnotism, and several along Broa-J- 
way bemoan this fact more than all the 
rest. It has l>een asserted that by hyp- 
notic aid he won the hand of the daughter 
of ex-Senator McPhersoa, of New Jersey. 
He associated himself with F. C. Whit- 
ney, and for both of them ("Quo Vadis") 
made a fortune. Then the tide turned and 
the London production cost $28,000. Next 
he tried Lawrence Hanley in "Near the 
Throne" and dropped $10,000 with It. He 
then agreed to Invest In "Robert of Sici- 
ly," but when the time came he de clin ed 
to put up $S(X) and the production in r?few 
York was called off. There are niany 
claims for back salaries, which will have 
to wait for settlement certainly until me 
doctor returns, which Is several years 

Has David Belasco cornered the play 
market? He went abroad last summer 
and bought right and left everything thiU 
looked as If it might be a succoss on this 
side of the water. They've ail been 
locked up In his trunk ever since, ana 
no one gets even a peep at them. He has 
been making plenty of money out of 
"Zaza" and "Madam Butterfly," and he 
has t)een sinking It all in new plays. Al- 
ready he has in his employnnent several 
plavrlghts of promint^nce, among th^^n 
Lee Arthur, author f.f "We 't-'ns of Ten- 
nessee." and Charles Klein, who wrote 
"The District Attorney" and sev'eral 
comic opera books. But this Is not all. 
Blanche Bates is under contract to hini 
and so is Dave Warfield and a number of 
others now engaged by other managers. 

The paths of grand opera leads but to 
the comic opera stage for certain members 
of the Grau troupe, who are prudent ic 
take time bv the forelock. Fanchon 
Thompson ■was the first, and she went %p 
London to play "The Belle of Bohemia, 
scored a hit and is drawing a fat salary. 
Victor Maurel followid. has made his de- 
but and like Miss Thompson, has barrels 
of money in sight. Oscar Hammorstcin 
Is after Fritzl Scheft. who Is waiting her 
turn at the Metropolitan to sing Isolde 
with tar more patience than chance oi 
being gratified. Hammerstein's offer is 
around $h'00 a week and permanency, but 
th« prima donna apparently prefers to 
hope on. The outlook for the opera folK 
is not encouraging. Grau will cut his 
force almost in balf next season, ani 
there will be no Oovent Garden opera 
this summer. The Grau economy will 
not, of course, aff.rt Melba. the de R^ez- 
kes and their ilk. but the smaller fry will 
suffer. Comic op ra needs fresh voIc?3. 
and the managers are quietly working 
at Grau's singers, arguing that a nrst- 
class comic opera s«'ilary for ten months 
double discounts grand opera for three. 

The taste of the public In comic opera 
has changed sufficiently of late to impress 
managers to the iicint of extreme shy- 
ness In touching a new production of that 
order. Manager Lrlander, in discussing 
this subject, said: "The time was \vhen 
the music was the main thing, vv ith good 
composition any kind of a bo?k would 
do. Now this is all (hanged. The book is 
■what we have to l.'ok at most carefully, 
and thev are very hard to get. There .3 
niontv of good music being offefred to 
managers these days, but it se^ems next to

"The thing which struck me the most

call them rateroS down there, and if 
that word comes fi-6in rat It is well 
taken, says the Kartsas City Journal. 
The day before '1 left Mexico an old 
gentleman came in on a train and put 
his head out of the tar window to see 
the sights. Just as the train pulled up 
at the depot a rateros on the platform 
snatched off the old gentleman's hat. 
The old gentleman ran out of the car 
and, seeing the thief, he set his valise 
down in order to give chase. In an in-

had. I had a little experience with the

Peaceful Czar Is Overruled »- Russian Strategic 

Plans Soon Will Place England In a 

Position of Helpfulness. 

St. Petersburar. March 20.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — While there Is no disposi- 
tion here to regrard the Russo-Brltlsh 
matter at Tien Tsin as acute, there un- 
questionably is a strong feeling prevail- 
ing among all classes of Russians that a 
claah between tbe two empires will 

The Russian national feeling is highly 
aggressive, and the situation In Man- 
churia is only a feeler of Russia's actual 

The mission of Russia enunciated by 
Peter the Great Is the text of Russia's 
gospel. Even the peasantry, with their 
simple lines of life and belief, are im- 
pregnated with this Instinct, and beyand 
that the stories that have reached them 
of the wealth of India and Britain have 
made them feel that they will naturally 
benefit by a conquest of Great B'ritain. 

Above these stand two classes In Rus- 
sia, the mi'jtary and the professional. 
The military party In Russia Is the 
power behind the tfirone; it dominates 
Russian policy to such an extent that It 
may carry out any aggressive scheme it 
and the nation may be In touch with. 
Its policy is the real policy of Russia. 

A certain grand duke who holds a Lilgh 
military position and has rendered dis- 
tinguished services to the empire has the 
supreme voice at the war ofHce. He has 
been one of the dictators of Russian 
Asiatic policy. He Is determined as far 
as his' Individual effort is concerned to 
(have Russia either control or rule Asia. 
All prominent army posltlans In the 
provinces abutting on the frontier he 
sees are filled by men Inspired with the 
feeling of his propaganda. Central 
Russia mby be said to be actually under 
control of this man and his appointees. 
.Their aim Is to keep the frontiers of 
Chinese Turkestan, Afghanistan and 
Persia In a state of constant unrest. 
The military force Is gradually being in- 
creased in all this belt, and the frontiers 
pushed forward as rapidly as circum- 
stances win permit of. Even mysterious 
Thibet has been penetrated and farms 
a part of an unofficial map prepared in 
view of the eventual advance on India. 
Emissaries even from the grand llama 
are on their way here to present their 
credentials to the czar. Her plans for 
reaching the Persian gulf are so well 
laid that she could at any time seize 
Teheran. Her garrison there is being 
gradually Increased, and she is slowiy 
but surely effecting such a control of 
all Persia that her ownership Is only 
a matter of time. The trade of North 
Persia Is In Russian hands, and her 
church Is also rapidly making its way 
among the Nestorians and Armenians. 

Moreover, wherever Russia has estab- 
lished her Influence In Persia or Turkes- 
tan, law and order have been estab- 
lished and the murderous Kurd has been 

Her first objective point in grasping 
the dominion of Asia will be the estab- 
lishing of a seaport on the Persian gulf 
where she will have a vital strategic 
point, and place herself In a position In 
South Asian waters similar to that held 
by Britain. 

Then she will be sure of India. Al- 
ready every pass and possibility of en- 
trance to India over the Himalayas has 
been mapped out by Russian engineers. 
Russian diplomacy and money have been 
freely used in creating friend.s among 
the independent rajahs in t^e northern 
part of India, and Russian emissaries are 

to be found In the leading cities of the 

Anyone whs doubts the policy of Rus- 
sia In reference to China must be sadly 
demented. Whether Russian, French or 
British money has built such railroads 
as exist there, Russia will have control 
of them and extend them as far as her 
financial resources will permit of. The 
railroad from Pekin to Klahka will be 
built as soon as things have resumed 
their natural condition In China. It will 
only form one branch of a netw^ork of 
railroads with which Asia will be girdled 
under Russian control. 

When It is borne in mind that Russia 
has an organized army of 4,000,000 men, 
all filled with the national spirit, and 
consequently a cohesive force of the ut- 
most power, her possibilities can be 
easily gauged. 

The czar is pacific, undoubtedly. His 
religious training and his personal 
tastes alike prevent him from inclining 
to any aggressive movement, but, as I 
have said before, the trend of all Rus- 
sian thought and growth is In the direc- 
tion of assuming ultimate control of

For more than 100 years It has been no- 
ticed that after every northeast gale that 
beats upon Small Point, at the mouth of 
the Kennebec, the beach is strewn with 
coal of a peculiar but excellent quality, 
relates a writer In the New York Times. 
It Is even more resinous and free burning 
than the cannel coal of England, and thd 
people living In the neighborhood of tho 
point have long been in the habit of col- 
lecting It for use In forges and grates. 
Sometimes only a few pieces of the coal 
arp washed up by the waves, and then a 
storm of more than unusual severity will 
maktii a contribution amounting to a ton 
or two. The origin of this coal has bs?n 
the object of repeated controversy. One 
rather disagreeable faction has contend- 
ed that it comes from a source no more 
important than a ship that was wrecke<l 
and sunk at the mouth of the river in 
days of old, and some have gone so far 
as to tell the name of the vessel and the 
date of Its loss. Careful Investigation 
of the water off the point has not led 
to the discovery of the wreck, however, 
and the amount of the coal that has 
been thrown up In the course of the 
past century would hardly be accounted 
for by th© destruction of a whole fleet 
of the biggest modern colliers. On tiie 
other hand, borings have been made seve- 
ral times along that part of the beach, 
and. though they cost a lot of money, 
thev never reve»il'?d anything that Lo a 
geologist or miner would indicate the 
presence of a coal deposit. The hlgnly 
valuable fueJ keeps making Its api>ear- 
ance on the shore, despite that fact, and 
the Maine mind H not easily discouraged 
when there seems to be a chance to se- 
cure a considerable number of honost 
pennies. So a new company has just been 
organized to have another try for the 
Small Point coal bed. The contributions 
of the stockholders are to be spent on a 
diver this time, and it is hoped that by 
a thorough examiratlon of the ocean bet! 
from the end of the i>olnt to Seguln Island 
the mvPterlous outcropping may at iast 
be found. The practicability of working 
the deposit, if on<». exists. Is by no means 
certain, for the sen on the coast of Mains 
is not easily brought into subjection. 

Kansas City Star: Congressman Jones, 
of Virginia, tells this story of his father: 
Dlrectlv after the war Jones, Sr., was 
sent to the state senate. An old slave 
who had belonged to him was also elect- 
ed to the senate. The two drew adjoining 
seats. Senator Jones was very courteous, 
and in addressing his former slave always 
called him senator. The old negro stood 
it for some time, and finally said: "Massa 
^VIlllam, I don't like dis senator business.

A Meeting Wednesday to 
Form Duluth Club. 

The Talk of a League Still 


Baseball fans interested In the succe?s 
of a giwd team to represent Duluth dur- 
ing the coming season will hold a meet- 
ing next Wednesday evening at the St. 
1a>u'}^ hotel at 8:30. 

This meeting is called for the purp<->se 
of deciding whether the team shall be 
handled by a stock company or by in- 
dividual mana£:ement, and should be 
attended by every man in the city inter- 
estt-<3 in promoting fast, clean ball dur- 
ing the coming season. 

Owing t'l the lack of conservative ac- 
tion on the part of other towns, the de- 
velopments in the prop.>sed Northwest- 
ern league are practiculiy at a stand- 
still. Duluth and Superior are getting 
Btrong teams together, but nothing is 
heard from other towns, except Vir- 
ginia. This town wishes to come into 
the league, and guarantees a fast team. 
If the baseball promoters of Eveletli, 
Ashland, Bayfield, Washburn or Brain- 
erd care to pet in the league they should 
l(»3e as little time as pos.sible in indicat- 
ing their intention. Any town desiring 
to enter the league its requested to no- 
tify the sporting department of this 
paper by letter or telegraph ijefore next 
Saturday. With good, fast and clean 
baseball in a league of from four to si» 
towns the promoters would not lose

The National league clubs have deter- 
mined upon reprisal methods. They are 
trying to make their former players, who 
have .'Signed with the American leagui* 
jump back at any cost. Who originated 
the plan nobody seems to know, but it is 
nevertheless a fact that a wholesale raid 
on the American league talent is contem- 
plated. The National men say they are 
prepared to outbid their rivals no matter 
how high the figures may go; that if the 
National league contract will not stand 
inequity, the American league will not, 
either. Therefore it Is maintained that 
the best way to raid the American league 
is to take away its players whether they 
have signed contracts or not. It is known 
that the National league men have been 
working secretly on this scheme for sev- 
eral days and that they hoi.>e to be able 
to spring a .surprise s.)on with the an- 
nouncement that a majority of their old 
stars have been won back. In short, the 
magnates do not believe that wholesale 
contract jumping will influence the public 
to stay away from the games, but pos- 
sibly they forget that baseball depends 
upon its honesty and that players who 
have no regard for their signed pledge 
cannot be regarded as strictly honorable.

Still another scheme to knock the Amer- 
ican leaKue sky-high before the season

statement that Soden and Oonant of the

a cash offer of $l.-<t.<»W to c. W. Somers, 
owner of :he Boston American leagrue 
club, to withdraw from the field and turn 
the Huntington avenue ground? over to 
them. It is also stated that S^iden and 
Conant have promised, in addition to this 
cash bonus, a franchise in the National 
leas;ue next year, possibly Philadelphia. 
President Johnson of the American league

and that Somers politely turned It down.

T ■ ' once more rejoices in the 

P' - i of a heavyweight champion. 

Hi.- name is George Chrisp. and he w„n 
his title recently in a slashing bout with 
Ben. Taylor at Nowcastle-on-Tyne. 

The fight was set for twenty rounds. 
but Chrisp cut it short in the eighth 
with a right swing on the point of tfte 
jaw that put Taylor down and out.

3 to 1 favorite, but Chrisp developed so

ing rounds th.1t the odds wtre speedily 

Oirisp is a ITO-pound man. but strong

born heavyweight champion since ISSG,

The American charajdon cyclist abroad. 
"Major" Taylor, Is being lionized to an 
unusual extent. Copies of the first Par- 
isian papers published after his arrival 
abound with spread-en gle pictures and 
discriptions of him and detailed accounts 
of his doings. In a letter that came in 
the same mail as the newspapers Taylor 
tells an Eastern friend that he feels like 
a prizefighter in America, because he is 
followed ab<5ut the streets and made much 
of everywhere. He arrived at Paris on 
March 11 at 1 o'clock in the morning and 
was received at the station by Victor 
Breyer and party. He remained up with 
them until 3 o'clock and created a sensa- 
tion by rising at 6 o'clock to take a walk. 
His early rising habit astounded his com- 
panions, who declared that he w^as not a 
good Parisian. On April 12 Taylor found 
him-self a hero. The papers hailed his 
arrival as the greatest sporting event 
since the visit of Zimmerman. In the 
forenoon the champion started for the 
track at the Park des Princes and was 
followed by a crowd on wheels. At the 
park a football game was In progress, 
but It was stopped and the players jilned 
with the spectators in cheering the Afri- 
can with American "Hli)! hip! hurrahs!" 
and shouts of "Vive Taylor" and "Vive 
le neuf" (the black). Many of the papers 
refer to him as "The Black" and speak of 
the contrast between the unbU-mished 
whiteness of his shirt and the blackness 

I of his face. The champions habit of dress- 
ing handsomely has captured the French 
and fithere are frequent allusions to his 
"coquetry of costume." On his first day 
at Paris Taylor met the French champion, 
Jacqueiin. It was the meeting of two 
men who are soon to battle for the cycling 
chamjiionship of the world. Taylor was 
standing in front of the Cafe L' Esper- 
ance. which is the renflezvous of the 
French cyclists, in company with Lam- 
berjack, Bourillon and others, when Jac- 
queiin came up In an automobile. He 
jumped out and without waiting for an 
introduction strode up to the negro, say- 
"This is Taylor, Isn't it? 
In a few minutes they were on most 
friendly terms. After awhile Jucquelin 

i remarked: 

I "It's funny; I never thought you were 
so little." 

I Taylor told him his height and weight 
and complimented Jacqueiin, who is of 
giant build, on his size, remarking par- 
ticularly that he had big legs. Jacqueiin 
returned that Taylor's were much bet- 
ter shaped. 

"Ah. but yours are .stronger," replied 
the American. 

"That's not the point; I'm afraid yours 
may be quicker," answered the polite

Next to Calumet and Hecia 

the Wolverine Makes 

Cheapest Copper. 

Work at the Washington 

Mine Has Been 


Diamond Drill More Ex- 
tensively Used Than 


Ever Before. 

Houghton. Mich., April 6.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Despite the promises of 
earlier months, the spring season is not 
far advanced, as is evidenced by the re- 
port of the goveniment weather bu- 
reau that there was an even two feet 
of snow, on the level, in Calumet, on 
April 1. The deep snow means furthsr 
delays to the mines that have exten- 
sive surface improvements planned for 
this seasons construction and is a dis- 

Next to the Calumet & Hecla, the 
Wolverine is making the cheapest cop- 
per of any Lake mine. The Quincy's 
costs have been greatly increased for 
the past few years by the vast amount 
of constniction work, but leaving this 
new work aside, the Quincy is still 
pretty well at the head of the list as a 
maker of cheap copper. 

Work at the Washington mine, In Ke- 
weenaw county, has been stopped. The 
company raised a little money two years 
ago and has expended it in explorations 
in the vicinity of Mosquito lake, A num- 
ber of amygdaloids were cut, the ex- 
ploring being done by trenches and 
cross-( uts along fissures, but nothing of 
sufficient promise to justify heavy ex- 
penditures has been encountered. 

The diamond drill i.s 1 eing used more 
extensively than ever before in the cop- 
per district, and the borings are adding 
greatly to the fund of exact knowledge 
regarding the territory lying to the 
south of the Portage Lake district, 
which, ^irevious to the revival of two 
and three years ago. had been unex- 
plored or abandoned for many years. 
The diamond drill is being used so 
largely in all parts of the world that 
the supply of black diamonds and boitz 
is inadequate, and were it not for the 
enforced idleness of th-^ great Witwa- 
tersrand gold field in South Africa, it is 
a question as to what price the black 
carbons would reach. As it is now, the 
cost of setting a single bit for a drill 
ranges from $800 to $12iiO, and the cost 
of drilling is consequt ntly verj- high, 
per foot. In firm rock long cylindrical 
cores are obtained, biit where the for- 
mation is greatly disturbed, as in the 
vicinity of the Elm River, Winona and 
Wyandot mines, the rock is so badly 
shattered that the ^bres come to the 
surface in the shape of fragments that 
require great care and considerable 
skill in reading. 

The nets- Baltic mill is practically 
completed, and will soon be fitted with 
its machinery. 

The new mill of the Mags is enclosed 
and will be finished in the next few 

.\ gang of workmen has begun clean- 
ing the site for the new mill of the Ad- 
venture. Work on the foundations for 
the new Trimountain mill, in the same 
vicinity, is well advanced. 

A surveying party started work this 
week on the sites of the new mills of 
the Wolverine and Mohawk, on Tra- 
verse bay. Lake Superior. Work on the 
ftundations will be started during the 
present month, and the mills will be 
erected and equipped as soon as pos- 
sible. The Mohawk & Traverse Bay 
arilroad. running between the mines 
and mill sites, is in good shape for 
early completeion. the grading having 
been finished, while ties and rails can 
be laid in a short time, when the rail- 
road is needed. 

The machinery now on hand at the 
Belt mines will be sufficient, with very 
few additions, for the reopening and 
development of the mines to the point 
of production. - Among the other ma- 
chinery assets is a stamp mill, in fair 
running order, «*hi( h can be used to 
turn some of the rich rock into cash, if 
puch action seems desirable to the man- 

Some of the Eastern papers have in- 
ferred that the statements sent from 
this district that copper was being 
shipped by rail as rapidly as smelted, 
were untrue, because they have just 
learned that the Caiumet & Hecla hao 
been accumulating a large reserve sup- 
ply of mineral since the close of navi- 
gation. Some years ago the Calumet & 
Hecia. following its usual policy of dup- 
licxating all branches of Its service, 
erected extensive smelters at Black 
Rock, Buffalo, to supplement those pre- 
viously built at SA.iuth Lake Linden. 
The mineral smelted at Buffalo i« all 
shipped during the sea.son of navigation 
by lake, and in consequence of this 
l>oIicy d certain proportion of the 
mineral, or rough copper, with its ad- 
hering gangue of conglomerate rock, is 
stored near the mills during the winter 
for summer shipment. The copper actu- 
ally smelted has been shipped as rap- 
idly as produced, by rail, during the 
winter. Lake navigation will open in 
the copper country pcTt^s about April 28, 
from present indications, and a cessa- 
tion of rail shipments may be looked 
for at any time, to permit the smelters 
to accumulate cargoe.-r for vessel ship- 
ment, the mixed lake-and-rail route be- 
ing about J8 per ton cheaper, to tide- 
water, than all-rail shipments direct 
from the smelters to the seaooard. 

Engine house No. IG. at the amygda- 
loid shaft of the same number of the 
Calumet & Hecla. is nearing completion. 
The amygdaloid shafts should be 
equipped and In steady commission by 
the close of the year, and the six-stamp 
addition to the Hecla mill, now building 
at Lake Linden to treat amygdaloid 
rock from these openings, is progressing 
very well, and will soon be ready to 
start production. It is probable that 
the Calumet & Heila will be able to 
make about 20,OO0,OO<3 pounds of copper 
annually from the amygdaloid shafts 
when in full commission, or approxi- 
mately as much copper as was made 
last year by the Tamarack 

Among the fre>ak bills introduced in 
the state legiolature at Lansing is one 
providing for a graduated specific tax 
on copper, ranging from one-sixteenth 
cent per pound on annual products of 
5,000,000 pounds or less, up to half a cent 
per pound on products exceeding 50,000.- 
000 pounds. The bill, while aimed at all 
of the mines, is especially directed 
against the Calumet & Hecla. and. If it 
be^ ame law, which is improbable, would 
impose" an annual state tax of about 
S-iOOWO on the mine. Previous to 1891 
the Michigan minei^ paid a specific tax 
of 75 cents per ton on their production, 

but in that year the system of taxation 
was changed, and the mines are now 
assessed precisely as other real and per- 
s.inal estates are assessed, .whi^h is the 
only fair method of taxation. 

The Adventure has contracted for 
double-cone hoists, similar in general 
plan to the great hoist at No. 3 Tama- 
rack, which are to raise six-ton skips. 

The Mass continues to pr(>duce large 
quantities of heavy copper, 'and a mass, 
weighing nearly twenty tons, has re- 
cently been cut. Faith in the future of 
this property is apparently well justi- 

The unwatering of the old Minnesota 
mine through the pump shaft of the 
Michigan is proceeding steadily and 
effectively, and the water will soon be 
down to a point where the old mine can 
be reached by a crosscut from the bot- 
tom of the Michigan. The Job of clear- 
ing out the old mine will l>e a very 
tedioue one. but perseverance will ac- 
complish all things. Diamond drill 
borings recently made show the trap 
rock adjoining the Minnesota bids fair 
to produce millions of dollars' worth of 
copper under the new name of Michigan, 
irrespective of what may be accom- 
plished in the way of production from 
the Calico lode.

At a dinner party several days ago, 
where a number of government oflficials 
and their wives were guests, the con- 
versation, which had become informal 
and general, turned on the subject of 
tricks with cards, says the New York 
Sun. One of the men produced a i>ack 
and proposed to show the company a 
most remarkable performance. He 
asked the hostess to have a soup tureen 
brought, and it was done. Then he asked 
the lady at his right to draw a card from 
the pack and make a mental note of It. 
She did so and returned the card at 
random to the deck. The performer next 
asked three or four of the male guests 
to shuflle the cards in turn, and re- 
quested the last of them to place the 
pack in the soup tureen and put the 
cover on. Turning to the lady who had 
drawn the card, he asked her in what 
order she would have it appear from the 
top of the pack, and she said she would 
like to have It in the seventeenth place. 
One cf the gentlemen then took the 
pack from the soup tureen and counted 
the cards from the top, face down. 

"What was your card?" the performer 
asked the lady, and she replied that It 
was the ace of spades. The seventeenth 
card was turned over and proved to be 
the ace of spades. 

A few days later a cabinet officer, who 
was one of the guests, met the performer 

and asked for an explanation of that In- 
teresting card trick. 

"Oh, that was an easy one," he replied. 
"You see, that was a pack of my own, 
and there were 52 aces of simdes in iU" 


It was just after a dinner and the man 
who had been sitting next to the younc 
woman with the beautiful arme and 
neck thought that he was the most for- 
tunate Individual in the room, says the 
New York Sun. He said all the bright 
things he could bring lo mind and waa 
congratulating himself that he waa 
keeping up his end of the conversation 
fairly well, when the young woman be- 
gan to display signs of nervousness. She 
gazed around the room ae If looking for 
an avenue of escape, moved uneasily in 
her .seat and allowed two or three jokes 
to pass her by without making it evi- 
dent that she recognized them. Aston- 
ished and half alarmed, the man looked 
at her inquireingly, and, meeting hU 
look, she said: 

"I am In mieerj'." 

"In misery?" echoed- the man. 

"Yes." she replied. "I was vaccinated 
the other day and it has taken beauti- 
fully. I could almost ecrema, it hurts 
so ■• 

The man looked at the beautiful arms 
and, seeing no mark there, said: 

"Why, where were you vaccinated?" 

"In New York," she replied with a 
smile. »'i

Clipped Another Sharp 

Notch Off Wheat 


Snow's Crop Report 

Proves the Demoral» 

izing Feature. 

The Finest Condition For 

Years At Opening of 


Duluth Board of Trade, April S.— The 
bears clipped an >ther good sizwl notch 
Dff ihe price of wheat today. Everything; 
went t^e!^ way. All news was boarish 
and corn which opened verj- strong lor^: 
part of its advance and Us sustaining 
Intlutnce was not there lent to wheat. 
Snow's crop report took all the s:>irii -JUt 
3f those who believed in higher prices. 
It was as follows: 

"In the past iwt-nty years the prospect 
at the beginning ot the .«pring growtn 
has never bten belter than it is today 
and in tnat i>eriod li is doubtful if it lias 
been, all things considered, equalled nrjoie 
than twice. The highest April condition 
oftlclally reporte-l since 18Si was »6.l> m 
1«»1. and its average for this whole periml 
is only S4.5. Liisc year, at this date it 
was si.l. Carefully considered local re- 
ports from nearly ever>- wheat growing 
country show that present prospects ib 
little, if anv. lower than In ly.U. waile in 
the territory west of the Mississippi river 
it is better even than that year." Snow 
further said the winter wheat condition 
opproaches perfection except Ohio and 

The Modern Miller was also bearish. 

The market 9tarte<l out weak and bar- 
ring one or twi» slight rallies, digged all 
morning. There was liberal selling 
bv the commls:=ion houses at Chi- 
cago, which ail.xl in depressing prices. 
The Northwe.«i receipts were liberal and 
the Argentine shlpnvents of wheat 
amounted to l.S' bus last week. 

Chicago rvported cash sales on Thji^s- 
dav of 250,iXiO bus. At the seaboari? ex- 
porters took 2:2,1X10 bus of wheat. Brad- 
Btreet reported exports of wheat and flour 
this week at 4.e9S,e;« bus, last year 3,'<3T,t>J^» 
bus. Australian shipments were reported 
at 45l.<iO0 bus. last week l.SS4.C<X> bus. 

Trading was fairly active on the I>uluth 
board. May wheat open »/»c off a 73%c, 
sold at 72T«c at 9:50. declined to T25/»-»4C at 
10:32. and then reacted to 72S4c at 
10:36. sold down to TZVsc at 11:10. slumped 
to 72»4c at 11:-15 and closed at 72%c, a net 
decline of IHc for the day. Chicago de- 
clined I'-jO. 

Cash sales amounted to 15.000 bus at %c 
under May for wheat to arrive and IV^c 
under for wheat In store. 

There was great interest in the earn 
market this morning. It opened with a 
rush at Chicago, selling at 447^c at the 
opening, an advance of l*ic ovt-r Thurs- 
dav'8 close. That was the high point. 
howe\er. and It steadily declined to Ir.e 
close although It still closed at an ad- 
vance of %c. Phillips was close^ly watched, 
but there was more or less mystery about 
his doings. He was; on both sides of the 
market during the morning, but was 
thought to have sold more than he bought. 

In DuUith corn showed an advance cf

Great Excitement And Mark- 
ed Strength Exhibited. 

Chicago, April 6.— Great excltemeiit and 
marked strength characterized the oiien- 
Ing of the corn market today. May, a: 
the beginning sol 1 from 44c to 44vi(C, %'^' 
%c higher than Thursday's close. A flood 
of countr>' buying orders, probably in- 
fluenc-ed by the wot weather weire In the 
pit. 1' or a few minutes offerings were 
scarce, but scattereil lots of 1-ong stuff 
began to com© >ut and May, during the 
first hour, reacted to 44^0. There was no 
evidence of buying by Phillips. Receipts 
tfere 515 cars, icrr of contract grades in- 
cluding yesterday's arrivals. 

May later worked buck to 44c but closed 
Btrt^ng. T»c over Thursday's close at iV'ic 
Phillips bought moderately throughout the 

Wheat was nervous and developed con- 
siderable weakness early. May opened 
unchanged to ^^c lower, at 72^^72c. and 
t>o\ii down to 71^c, with the com reaction. 
Commission houses sold libezally. LocaJ 
receipts were 155 oars, one of contract 
irrade while Minnaapolls and Duluth re- 
ported 49S cars against 369 last week, aid

Chicago. April 6.— Since May wheat be- 
gan to be traded In. it has not shown as 
low a point as it touched today, selling at 
7034c. Early prices were around 72'4c. but 
the market closed at the lowest and looked 
weak at the close. A favorable report of 
April conditions which showed an average 
of the hiKh€^t in twenty years, prtxluced a 
steady li<|uidatlon on the part of wheat 
holders and inspiretl more confidence 
among the short sellers. There wore no 
cables, so no indication from abroad was 
felt. The world's shipments were S.5C0.00O 
bus. There was some export business on 
the break, but only In a moderate way. 
Clearance for two days were 6J^.0<X) bus. 
We must confess that there appears to be 
absolutely nothing on the speculative hor- 
izon at this writing to create an sustain- 
ing influence in the wheat market. With 
a condition remarkablv high, with an ex- 
port demand onl.v sufficient to take care 
of the ordinary movement of grain and 
making no inroads on the large visible 
supply and with continued liquidation of 
the May option, the tendency of wheat 
values must Inevitably be downward. 
Helps may. of course, come from some 
unexpected source In the way of unprece- 
dented weather conditions or any com- 
plications political, but at the present mo- 
ment these are not visible. 

In controduction to the weakness in 
wheat, there has been a remarkable 
strength In com with prices touching 44"/t(C, 
the highest so far. This is 1% over the 
close of Thursday and 4 cents over the 
low prices produced Wednesday. There 
vriis a good deal of local profit-taking and 
some selling by Phillips, but the trade 
being on a ver>' large scale and the shorts 
have evidently been numerous enough to 
take care of the very handsome profits 
which some longs have been securing. 
Clearances for two days, 960,tXi0 bus. 
There is no shipping demand. Ix)oks to us 
that the s«hort interest in corn is very ap- 
preciably less and there Is a noticeable ab- 
sence of a cash demand, these facts to- 
gether with the fact that May liquidation 
must Increase daily and owing to the very 
much oe-slded sncntlment and overbought 
condition, leads us to think that pn)fit- 
taking is more than advisable around 
these prices. 

The May oats touched 2(>V4c early, helped 
by large commission houses buying, and 
also help from Phillip-«!. Weather was a 
factor. There is no cash demand and con- 
sequently speculation is principally a fac- 
tor in this advance. Weather corulitions 
will be watched closely from now on as the 
effect upon oats will be pronounced. 

The provision market has been easy. 
Armour is credited with being a seller of 
July and September rlt>s. Th© market 
has been a small one, hogs were 5c lower 
Hogs West, 42.000, against 4S.OO0 last year. 
Stocks of lard are expected to decrease 
again next week. This is a bullish factor, 
but May liquidation may prove the offset. 


His Decision on Man» 
churia Worthy of En- 
lightened Sovereign. 

President McKinley Sees 
Proof of Sincere Re- 
gard For Harmony. 

The Czar's Motive Is to 

Preserve Concert of 


Washington, April 6. — The determina- 
ti >n of the Rus.sian government not to 
rrccj to a conclusion the negotiations 
begun some time ago with the Chinese 
government in regard to Manchuria has 
naturally given great gratification to 
the government of the United States. 
The president is understood to recognize 
in this act of the czar another proof of 
his sincere regard for harmony with the 
powers now engaged in negotiations in 
China, and his determination to do 
nothing to impede the speedy and satis- 
factory conclut^-ion of these negotiations. 
In his view it is an act worthy of the 
enlightened sovereign who initiated the 
ccnlerence at The Hague. The govern- 
ment of the United States is especially 
gratified by the termination of the 
late complication, as it has constantly 
been in harmony with that of Russia in 
all the main points of our policy in 
China. It is the belief, and generally 
entertained in government and diplo- 
matic circles in Washington, that no 
motive can be assigned for this resolu- 
tion e.xcept the desire to preserve the 
concert of powers, as it was clearly 
within the discretion of Russia to pur- 
sue whatever couii^e that government 
thought best for its interest, and it may 
be eaid with absolute certainty that 
nothing in the way of pressure or of 
combination has been put upon the 
Russian government to induce tliis re- 
sult. It is true, the government of the 
United States on March 1 made known 
its views of the matter, and communi- 
cated them with entire frankness to all 
the powers interested, but no joint rep- 
resentation, it may safely be asserted, 
has ever been made to Ru.ssla or to

most unanimous vote, adopted an 
amendment to the rules of the Mil- 
waukee chamber, providing tfiat on con- 
tracts for the future delivery of wheat, 
corn and oats, warehouse receipts of the 
licensed public elevators of Chicago ap- 
proved by the board of directors of the

Italian consulates and the residence of 
the Italian consul occurred last even- 
ing in connection with the extradition 
of Jaffel, an alleged accomplice of 
Gaetano Bresci, the assassin of King 
Humbert. The mob tore down and 
shattered the court of arms at the Rus- 
sian consulate, but were prevented by 
the police from doing material damage

Missabe Road May Pay 

Taxes Direct to the 


County Board Arranges 

Conferences With Road 


Believed To Come From 

Suggestion Made By 


If a deal that is pending goes through 
St. Louis county may be helped out to 
the extent of $l(Xi.O(.K) a year or so on 
taxes in the near future. The deal Is to 
get the Duluth, Missabe & Northern Rail- 
road company to pay Its taxes to the 
county Instead of to the state. 

It is understood that a tii) come indi- 
rectly from the road that it would be 
willing to do this providing the county 
agreed to be a littlt- easier on it than the 
state will be. In fact the proposition is 
said to have originated in the company 

This morning a resolution was prepared 
to be introduced a: the meeting of the 
county board this afternoon appointing a 
committee of four, in conjunction with the 
county attorney, Wilson G. Crosby, to In- 
terview the officers of the Duluth, Mis- 
sabe & Northern Railroad company with 
a view to discussing this matter. There 
was little doubt, in fact none at all, that 
the resolution wruld have the vote of 
every member of the board, and the 
chances seem favorable that the deal w«il 
go through. 

If it does it will be a great help to the 
county, to the city of Duluth, and to all 
the local taxing bodies that have any- 
thing to do with the sections larough 
which the road runs. The ra.ilroad is en- 
tirely within the bounds of St. Louis 
county, and if It is willing to do so there 
Is no reason why it should not pay Its 
taxes to the county rather than to the 
state. At present the stategets every dol- 
lar of taxes that he road pays, and, the 
county and city got nothing whatever. 
The proposed change would mean just 
so much clear gain in taxes, and would 
ease local tax Inudens immensely with- 
out Increasing that of the railroad In the 
least. The city ul' r>uluth would come in 
for a considerabh share, for besides the 
right-of-way that is in the city limits, the 
docks and terminals in the West End 
are very valuable. 

The Duluth, Missabe & Northern rail- 
road is now paying its taxes to the state of 
Minnesota by turning In 2 per cent of Its 
gross earnings to the state treasury every 
year. During tho coming summer the 
road, having been in existence ten years, 
will ce-me into the class that pays 3 per 
cent under the pr<^sent law. The matter 
of paying a gross earnings tax in lieu 
of all other taxes is optional with the 
railroad, and If it sees fit it can cease 
paying to the state and begin paying to 
the county. 

It will get off easier on taxes on this 
ba.sis than it does now. or at least easier 
than it win when it beg^ins to pay 3 per 
cent. It Is estimated that 3 per cent on Its 
gross earnnigs will make about $125,<Xiil. On 
an averare tax of 24 mills this v.onld i)lace 
the valuation for purposes of taxation at 
about $5,0f-0.f'00. This is equivalent on the 
usual basis to about $10,000,000 to $12,000,000 
actual valuation, and It is not likely that 
the assessed valuation of the road would 
be s much as $5,000,000. The reson for this 
is that while the road Is sho.rt and not 
especially valuable In Itself, Its earnings 
are so great that it will pay a tax out of 
proportion to the size of the road if It 
pays under the gross earnings system. 


Several More Insurgent 

Commands Lay Down

Manilla, April 6.— The following sur- 
renders have occurred; The insurgent

Lisbon Falls Loses Twenty= 
Eight Buildings. 

Lisbon Falls, Maine, April 6.— A lire, 
which started in the Everett block here, 
at 1:30 o'clock this morning, resulted in 
the devitruction of twenty-eight build- 
ings in the business portion of the town, 
and it is believed the loss will approxi- 
mate $250,000. With the aid of engines 
from Lewlston and Bath, the flames 
were controlled at 4:50 o'clock. 


Holborn Hostelry Made Fam- 
ous By Dickens. 

London, April 6.— The Black Bull Inn, 
the last of the ancient hostelries in 
Holborn, is to be pulled down. It was 
here that Dickens laid the scene of the 
nursing experienPes 6f Mrs. Gamp and 
Betsy Prig and Where the immortal 
Sairey perpetrated so many of her 
historic expressions. After standing 
for over 300 years it is now to make 
way for modern , buiMings, which will 
soon replace all the old haunts so dear 
to Dickens.

Vessel Men to Try to 
Eliminate Com- 

It is asserted that the vessel owners 
who are behind the proposed combination 
of interests, or a pool of vessel property, 
have evolved a very Ingenious way of con- 
ducting the business that rates may be 
maintained to what they consider the 
proper standard. This pool Is said to be 
a very close organization. The plan is 
to malte an estimate of the material that 
is to be moved within a st.ated perior of 
time and then each vesselman will be al- 
lotted so much to carry, this amount to be 
in proportion to the number of vessels 
that he has entered In the pool. Thus if 
200 boats are entered in a pool and a man 
owns 8 of them, he gets 4 per cent of 
the tonnage to move, provided, of course, 
that his boats are of the standard size. If 
the ore shipment should be 2,000,OOJ tons, he 
would be allowed 80.000 tons. After he hivl 
carried his allotment for a month he 
would be expected to lay his boats up until 
he had something else to do on his regular 

The Cleveland I./eader says that the ves- 
seimen have decided to attempt the dar- 
ing feat of almost eliminating competition 
among the vessel owners, and of giving 
the trade only such vessels as it demands. 
This is calculated to have the effect of 
making the rates as strong as the vessel 
owners desire and If will effectually do 
awav with the Idea of having at all times 
from three to a dozen boats rushing after 
a single cargo, whilt?> the shipper sits back 
and enjoys the scramble, and finall.v suc- 
ceeds in "naming the rate most acceptable 
to himself. The movement Is said to be 
backed by some of the longest heads In 
the marine business and men that will 
not look for any failure of any plant that 
they adopt. The vesselmen are said to 
have nothing to lose by tne venture, but 
everything to gain. The meeting to be 
held next Wednesday Is believed to be for 
the purpose of completing arrangement.*. 

Tlie strife between the marine engineers 
and the vesel owners on the lakes is get- 
ting more and more Interesting and com- 
plicated. The engineers are keeping in 
close touch with the members of their or- 
ganization all over the country and are 
constantlv assuring each other that there 
will be no wavering. On the other side the 
vessel owners have started what might be 
termed an employment agency. The coun- 
try is said to be ransacked for available 
material and as fast as the men appear 
they are given jobs. Men from all possible 
coast points are said to be receiving of- 
ferus of good salaries and their expenses 
to the principal ports of the lakes where 
the boats will be offered them. 

WTiIle this Is going on the engineers are 
not asleep. Daily reports b.v wire phow 
where the men are located and their dis- 
position toward the association. The en- 
gineers claim to know where each man 
holding a government license Is located 
along the lakes, and the confident that not 
a man In the organization can be pre- 
vailed upon to go to work before some 
understanding Is arrived at between Pres- 
ident T''hler and the executive committee 
of the Lake Carriers' asfsoclatlon. There 
is scarcely a marine man to be found that 
does not predict a delay after the open- 
ing of navigation before tne l)oats arc put 
in commission.

The worst part of sickness, frequent- 
ly, is getting over it. 

The patient's strength is depleted, 
his system is generally demoralized, 
relapses are continually feared, and 

The one thing to aid recovery is to 
give the patient thatwliich will enable 
him to get strong, and at the same time 
give strength direct to the different 
organs of the body. 

Nothing will do this like Vinol. 

It acts directly on the stomach, cre- 
ates a healthy appetite, and enables 
the digestive organs to obtain the nec- 
essary elements to increase the weight 
of the patient and to make new healthy 
flesh and muscle tissue and pure, rich, 
red blood. 

The following is a letter showing 
where Vinol was taken and did good 
after a case of bickness. It reads as 
follows : 

" I wish to c{>rtify to the very great 
benefit whia'h has been derived from 
the of Vinol in my family. My 
wife was very sick with the grippe and 
afterward was wholly run down. One 
bottle of Vinol places her on her feet 
in better condition than she had been 
before in .six months. I heartily rec- 
ommend and endorse it." — Henry P. 
Stuktkvant, 81 Iluntington St., Brock- 
ton, Mass. 

Everything that is in Vinol is 
plainly printed on the label of 
each package. 

We know Vinol is a splendid 
preparation, and in many cases 
we have been able to see for our- 
selves the wonderful results it 
brings about. 

Remember that we guarantee 
Vinol and refund the purchase 
money if you are not satisfied.

To Know What You Are Taking 

When Using Catarrh Medi» 


Catarrh is the short route to consump- 
tion, and the importance of early and 
judicious treatment of catarrh, whether 
located in the head, throat or bronchial 
tubes, cannot be too strongly empha- 

The list of catarrh cures is as long as 
the moral law, and the forms in which 
they are administered, numerous and 

confusing, from sprays. Inhalers, 
washes, ointments and salves to pow- 
ders, liquids and tablets. 

The tablet form is undoubtedly the 
most convenient and most effective, but 
with nearly all advertised catarrh rem- 
edies, it is almost .entirely a matter of 
guess work as to Kvliat you are taking 
into your system, as the proprietors, 
while making all .gort^ of claims as to 
what their medicine**" will do, always 
keep it a close set-ret as to what they 
are. '' ' 

The success and popularity of the new 
catarrh cure, Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, 
is largely because it not only cures 
catarrh, but becaiise catariti sufiferer.s 
who used these tablets know what they 
are taking into tiaeir systems. Stuart's 
Catarrh T.^.blets -being composed of 
Eucolyptol, Hydrastin. Guaicol and sim- 
ilar valuable and antiseptic ingredients, 
and are pleasant to tee taste, and being 
dissolved in the mouth, they take im- 
mediate effect upon tiie mucous lining 
of the thrjat. nasal passages and whole 
respiratory tract. 

The cures that Stuart's Catarrh Tab-; 
lets have accomplished In old chronic 
cases of catarrh are little short of re- 
markable, and ttie advantage of knowing 
what you are putting Into your stomach 
is of paramount importance, when it is 
remembered that the cicaine or mor- 
phine habit has been frequently con- 
tracted as the result of using secret ca- 
tarrh remedies, 

Stuart's Catarrh Tablets meet with 
cordial approval from physicians, be- 
cause their antiseptic character renders 
them perfectly safe for the general pubi- 
Ho to use, and their composition makes 
them a common sen^e cure for all forms 
of catarrhal troubles. 

All druggists sell them at 50 cents for 
full-sized packages. 


An enthusiastic baseball meeting 
held at the otl^ce of the Cass Land com-

of the .Winnipeg team, will take hold of

ful of seemg some exceptionally good 
ball. The team which represented Cass 
Lake last year made an enviable reputa- 
tion. It was made up entirely of Indians, 
with one exception. They defeated every 
amateur team of note in the north haU

Water Rising Fast In New 
England Rivers. 

Thousands of Employes 
Are Out of Work. 


Wu Ting Fang Calls Early 

at the State De- 


Seeking Information of 

Reported Interruption 

of Relations. 

Boston, April 8. — Flood conditions in 
the various rivers of New England, re- 
sulting from the copious rains of the 
pa.<«t week, did not improve today. Taa 
rivers continued to rise, and indications 
at nearly all points were that the record 
of the great tloods of 189S would be 
reached, if not surpassed. The absence 
of ice, whioh went out last week from 
many of the rivens, thus far has pre- 
vented seriuus damage to property, but 
today thousands of mill operatives were 
compelled to stop work, as factories 
could not be operated on account of tho. 

high water. 

The chief property damage reported 
up to midday was tn railroads and high- 
ways from washouts. Lowlands in all 
.section^ were inundated. At one or two 
points bridge.^ had been washed away 
ana in some jlaces the structures ha.t 

been weakened. This had caused con- 
siderable interruption to traffic upon 
various short railway lines in Maine, 
New Hampshire and Massachusetts, 
but trains In the main lines were run- 
ning with nearly the usual resrularity. 
Among the mills which weje compelled 
to shut down today were many at 
Lawrence, Mass., where 20,000 hands 
were idle; at Lowell, where the major- 
ity of the corporations suspended: at 
Lewiston, Me., Manchester and Nashua, 
N. H., 

At Lowell the street railroad power 
house was in the midst of a lake; at 
Nashua the light, heat and power com- 
pany was on the vt>'ge of suspension. 
Up to today the average rainfall in New 
England had t>een 2:68 inches since 
April 1. Light rains were falling over 
the whole of Northern New England to- 
day, but the weather forecasters said 
that the indications were that the wea- 
ther would clear late this afternoon or 


He Is to Be Removed Soon to a Large House In 
a Fashionable Locality, Beside 
' the Pasig River. 

Reports Received Were 

Contradictory and But 

Little Is Known. 

Manilla, April 8.— Oen. MacArthur 
says it is Impossible to make a state- 
ment concerning Aguinaldo now. 

It is pDssible that Aguinaldo will soon 
i be removed from the Malacanang palace 
to a large house, with pleasant grounds, 
Nc. 56 General Solano street, a fashion- 
able quarter of the city, beside the Pasig 
river, w hioh is being renovated and pre- 
I pared for occupancy. 

Aguinaldo is purchasing diamonds and 
other jewelry. He continues tD receive 
certain visitors, but newspaper corres- 
I>ondents are excluded. 

It is said the manifesto which rie 
has been preparing has not yet been 
signed, and it is added that Aguinaldo 
is reluctant to comply with the condi- 

tions. It appears that the majortty of 
the Filipinos in Manilla distrust Aguin- 
aldo and dislike to see him accorded 
special favors. They say he ought to be 
severely punished. 

Gen. Sandico. a f'^rmer member of 1 
Aguinaldo's cabinet, has surrendered to 
the American authorities at Cabana- 
tuan, in tlie province of New Ecija. He 
has a bad record and may be tried. 

The trial of ^. Brix Hoelterman, the 
Belgian Avho w^as^cinnected with the 
Philippine Trading Company and whose 
arrest on the charge (4 furnishing sup- 
plies to insuryenta was announced 
Feb. 19, has been completed. The evi- 
dence of the Filipino, Col. Herrera. who 
recently surrendered, clinched the prose- 
cution. The colonel rtPtlfied that Hoel- 
terman had furnished money and sup- 
plies to the insurgents. 


Officials and Employes of Central Railroad Have 

Not Been Able as Yet to Adjust 

Their Wage Differences. 

New York. April 8.— Neither em- 
ployers nor employed have made deci- 
sive moves In the wage dispute that 
may terminate with a strike on the 
Central Railroad of New Jersey. It is 
expected that the men will confer 
within the next twenty-four hours and 
by vote agree upon a plan of action. It 
is difflcult to take the measure uf the 
sentiment of the moving army of men 
that a railway system employs, but as 
far as it can be sounded on the Central, 
the men seem moved by a spirit of con- 
servatism and to l)e inclined to refrain 
from striking until every resource of 
conference and arl>itration has been ex- 
hausted. The withdrawal from the 
city of the chiefs of the Brotherhood of 
Railroad Men after an aunsuccessful 
attempt to secure a conference with the 

! officials of the railroad, restores the dis- 

i i>ute to one directly between the com- 

\ pany and its men. 

i Charles H. Warren, vice president of 
the company, speaking for the railroad, 
made this statement today to the As- 
sociated Press: 

"The brotherhood chiefs evidently do 
not know that it is a custom of rail- 
roads to close their general offices on 
Saturday afternoon. We were closed 
in usual custom on Saturday and in 
addition to that I was called away on

Railroads Secure Import' 

ant Decisions From 

Supreme Court. 

Washington, April S.— In the supreme 
court today an opinion was handed down 
bj- Justice White in various cases involv- 
ing the Ktng and short haul clause of tiie 
interstate commerce law. The principal 
opinion was rendered in the case of the 
East Tennessee & Georgia railroad and the 
charge was to the effect that a lower rate 
was charged on freight carried to Na.«h- 
ville than w;ls charged on freight to Chat- 
tanooga, the distance to the first point 
l>fcing greater than to the latter. The de- 
cisions of the interstate commerce com- 
mission, the circuit court and the circuit 
court of appeals, were antagonistic to the 
railroad, on different grounds. The opin- 
ion reversed all these decisions and was 
in favor of the railroad, though without 

A Youth Received a 

Heavy Electric Shock 

And Lives. 

Houghton. Mich., April S.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Ray Eggleston, aged 20, 
while helping in the installation of a 
new dynamo at the Peninf^ula Electric 
Light and Power company's plant iu 
Houghton, c-ame in contact with over-

miraculous escape. 

business. I think under these circum- 
stances it was somewhat unusual for 
them to expect me to meet them at the 
time named by them. We are pre- 
pared to be entirely reasonable about 
the matter. We want no dispute witii 
employes, and are prepared to pay them 
the wages paid by other roads in the 
vicinity. When our men first came 
forward with a request for an increase 
in pay, we detailed some of our officials 
to make an investigation of the wage 
scales of the other roads. We conferred 
with committees and as a result of In- 
quiry some of the wages on the road 
were increased. Some were not and the 
men drawing them further expres4sed 
their dissatisfaction. We have toUl 
them that we will take any seven rail- 
roads they designate, and with a joint 
committee or a committee to which we 
and they shall name, outside men, 
make an investigation of the pay of 
the men employed by them, and abide 
by the results of the showing made. 
We have also asked our men to point 
out any specific case of treatment that 
is unfair and agreed to right any in- 
justice that may be shown. As I have 
.said, we do not wish to be unfair, and 
we freely invite the men to make 
known their objections and wishes. I 
do not know of anything that will be 
done today, nor do I know of any plan 
for a conference. I cannot make any 
prediction as to what will be done on 
either side." 


Washington, April 8.— The Chinese 
minister was an early caller at the state 
department today to seek information as 
to the report, based on advices to the 
state department, that there had -been 
an interruption of the diplomatic inter- 
course between Russia and China. Mr. 
Wu had not been advised of any sucn 
development, and the inf armation before 
the state department was so contradic- 
tory that it did not permit any clear 
idea of the real state of affairs. The 
doubt arises from the fact that Mr. 
Rockhill's latest dispatch does not men- 
tion any such disarrangement, and the 
officials feel bound to accept this as 
pretty strong evidence that pri^r inti- 
mations of discord have not taken actual 
form. Yet the dispatch received from 
Mr. Squires, the American charge 
d'affaires in the absence of Minister 
Conger, appear to have been quite ex- 
plicit that the difficulty already had 
made itself manifest. It is thougiit 
possible at the state department that the 
circumstances to which Mr. Squires 
refers occurred prior to the receipt in 
Pekln of the last Russian note, and that 
the trouble may have been adjusted sub- 

The state department maintains an 
attitude of doubt and expectancy, and 
is not yet prepared to admit that there 
has been an interruption of intercourbc 
between the two countries, either limited 
or complete. 

Aside from the telegraphic advices, 
there are some attending circumstance.^ 
which indicate that at least some strain 
or partial interruption of intercourse has 
occurred. The fact developed in Wash- 
ington about a week ago that Russia 
had delivered to China what amounted 
to an ultimatum on \he signing of the 
Manchurian agreement. This followed 
the usual course of ultimatums and 
fixed a definite limit of days within 
which China could act. It alsD conveyed 
the clear intimation that unfavorable 
actios by China would lead to a sever- 
ance of diplomatic relations between the 
two countries. The limit of time fixed 
is believed to have been one week, and 
to have expired last Wednesday. China 
did not sign within the limit, and t.he 
next dav, Thursday, Russia addressed 
her note" ta the powers which has been 
accepted as removing the pressure over 
the Manchurian agreement. This at 
first seemed to be a waiver of her prior 
intimation of an interruption of diplo- 
matic intercourse, and yet there was no 
such explicit waiver, and the latest ad- 
vices from Pekin reporting that an in- 
terruntion has now actually occurred 
seem to be directly in line with that 
threat previously conveyed. 

In case there proves to be an interrup- 
tion of the relations between Russia 
and China, it is not expected to disar- 
range the negotiations between tlie 
nowers and China, or between Russia 
and the powers. It probably would be 
confined to a termination of the close 
entente long maintained between Russia 
and China.

London, April 8.— A dispatch to the 
i Evening News from Paris says that the 
French detectives were privately in- 
formed of a projected attempted to as- 
sassinate President Loubet during his 
coming trip. ExtraordinaiTr precautions 
have been taken everywhere and the 
usual police protection has been doubled. 
Outsiders have been excluded from the 
railroad stations. Ten thousand soldiers 
have been detailed to maintain order 
during the French president's stay at 
Xice, where stringent orders have been 
issued to rigorously sBppress the slight- 
est hostile demonstraiion. President 
Loubet is inclined to ^ugh at the de- 
tectives' fears that an attempt will be 
made upon his life. 

London, April 8.— At the first daj- of the 
Manchester EJaster meet today, the Lan- 
cashire handicap steeple chaise for 2000 
sovereigns, distance 3- miles and a half, 
was won bv J. Lonsdale's bay gelding, 
Coragh Hill. E. J. Percy's gray mare 
Bonnie Dundee, won second place, and R. 
F. Hunt's brown gelding Grand Attack, 
was third. Fourteen horses ran. 


New Torpedo Boat Does 

Not Meet Speed 


Washington, April 8.— Secretary Long 
was informed today that the torpedo 
boat Perry, built by the Union Iroa 
works, of San Francisco, failed to meet 
contravH speed requirements on her re- 
cent official trial. Under the contract 
the vessel was required to develop a 
speed of 29 knots an hour, but the best 
she could do on her trial run was 28:2 
knots per hour. The action of the de- 
partment has not yet been determined, 
but the vessel probably will be accepted 
subject to a slight deduction from the 
contract price. 


Will Bring Minister Loomis to 
San Juan. 

Washington, April 8.— The navy de- 
pa nment received a cablegram from 
Commander Sargent of the Scorpion to- 
day announcing the deoarture of that 
vesel from La Guayra for San Juan 
Although no mention was made in the 
dispatch of Minister Loomis, it is un- 
derstood that he is aboard the Scorpion 
and will be transferred at San Juan to a 
merchant steamer for conveyance to 
the United States. The minister will 
arrive at San Juan Wednesday evening 
or Thursday morning, and if he meets 
a steamer there promptly should be in

The Taxes of Iron Mines 
Should Be Raised. 

Pay Less Than Their Fair 
Share of Taxation. 

Northern Star Was Respon- 
sible For Collision. 

Buffalo, April 8.— In 1S99, a collision oc- 
curred in St. Mary's river, between the 
steamer Northern Star and the Siemens 
and consort, Alex Homey, by which the 
latter boats, it is alleged, were damaged 
to the extent of $30,000. Suit was brought 
in the United States court and today Judge 
Hazel decided that the Northern Star wa.s 
responsible for the collision. hTe Siemens 
and consort are the property of the Bes- 
semer company while the Northern Star 
belongs to the Northern Steamship com- 

Kingston, Jamaica, April 8.— Pri\-ate ad- 
\'1ces received here from Panama, says, 
smallpox is prevalent there. 

The iron mining industry of Minne- 
sota is a magnificent industry, and a 
source of great pride to the state and to 
the city of Duluth, but a geneial im- 
pression is getting about that it is get- 
ting off altogether too easily in the mat- 
ter of taxes, and that it is time that it 
should be made to pay its proper pro- 
portion of the public expense. 

It may be thought that it is being 
taxed as other property is taxed, but it 
is not. The assessments on the iron 
mines of this county are ridiculously 
low, compared with the assessments on 
other property, and the worst of it is 
that while other property remains on 
the ground and can be taxed properly 
some other year if it gets off too lightly 
this year, the iron industry is rapidly 
melting away, and the chances are that 
if proper assessments are not made 
soon it will have disappeared from the 
state before it is compelled to pay its 
proper share of taxes. 

The iron mines of this county are as- 
sessed at something les* than $10,000,- 
000. -■! 

They should be assessed at not less 
than $75,000,000, not only for this year 
and for future years, but for the years 
in the past when they have escaped at 
greatly less than the assessments they 
should have had. 

A gieat trouble with getting at proper 
assessments of the iron properties of 
the county has always been the diffi- 
culty of getting at their actual value. A 
mine as a prospect has a very hazy 
value. The dsicovery of ore in a con- 
siderable value brings its worth up 
largely but the body may not be so large 
as reported, and on the other hand It 
may vastly exceed the original esti- 
mates. 3o the boards of equalization, 
county and state, have always had 
trouble in getting at a proper basis on 
which to make the assessments on the 
mines. Probably nobody but the actual 
owners of an iron property know Its 
real value, and in some cases they may 
not be very sure about it. 

So it has been a very easy matter for 
the representatives of the iron inter- 
ests to pull the wool over the eyes of the 
equalizing bodies and get off with as- 
sessments that are now found to be 
ridiculously out of proportion with the 
assessments on other kinds of property. 

Now, however, there Is something to 
go upon. The recent acquisition of the 
property of the Lake Superior Consoli- 
dated Iron mines, the Rockefeller cor- 
poration, gives an approximate basis 
upon which to get at the value of the 
iron properties of the county. It is not 
by any means exact, but exactness is 
probably impossible, 6o many things 
enter into the consideration of the val- 

ues of iron mines. But it seems to be as 
near correct as can be made, and at any 
rate it is certainly flair to the iron com- 

The Consolidated has been taken into 
the United States Cteel corporation on & 
basis of 1.35 in common stock and 135 in 
preferred «!tock of the combine for 100 
in stock of the Consolidated. At the 
probable market price of the combino 
stock, about 100 for preferred and FiO f^r 
common, this would make a share of 
Consolidated stock worth $202.50. The 
Lake Superior Consolidated Iron minea 
is capitalized at $30,000,000, which would 
make its real value, on this basis, about 

This Includes the Duluth, Misaabe A 
Northern railroad, but that is bonded 
for practically all that it is worth, so 
it may be taken out of the considera- 
tion, leaving, in round numbers, $60,000,- 
000 as the valuation of the iron prop- 
erties in the Consolidated alone. No>» 
the Consolidated does not by any means 
include all of the Iron properties on th* 
ranges. There are two iron ranges in 
this county, and the Consolidated's 
properties are all on the Mesaba range. 
There are many other properties of 
great value on the Mesaba range alone, 
not to mention those on the Vermilion 

The total shipments of iron ore from 
Minnesota last season were nearly 
10,000,000 tons. Of that amount some- 
thing less than 4.000,000 tons were ship- 
ped from the propertiee owned by the 
Lake Superior Consolidated Iron mines. 
In other words, the Consolidated 
shipped two-fifths of the total. 

The Consolidated mines are worth 

They represent properties from which 
two-fifths of last season's shipment* of 
ore came. 

On that ba<=is the actual value of the 
iron properties of the two ranges would 
be at least $150,000,000. 

No one will dare allege that that val- 
uation is too high. Indeed, one promi- 
nent authority, who is well posted on 
mining value* has said that the Consol- 
idated properties alone are worth $200,- 
000,000. So the total of $150,000,000 for 
the entire mining property of the 
counts' cannot be too high. 

They are assessed for purposes of 
taxation at lei5S than $10,000,000. 

Real property in the city of Duluth is 
supposed to be asseased at about 50 per 
cent of its actual value. It pays taxes 
on that basis. The iron properties of 
St. Louis county are a«seaeed at one- 
fifteenth of their value, placing that 
value as low as it can possibly be made. 

On the same basis as other property, 
the assessment of the Iron properties 
should reach $75.000.00 l)efore they be-

Navy Department to Secure Five Hundred Filipinos 

For Service on Gunboats In 

the Philippines. 

New York, April 8.— A special to the 
Herald from Washington says: In- 
structions have l>een cabled by Secre- 
tary of the Navy Long to Rear Admiral 
Remey, commander-in-chief of the 
Asiatic station, authorizing him to en- 
list 500 natives of the Philippines for 
service on board the former Spanish 
gunboats and other small vessels which 
are to be maintained exclusively in the 
Philippines. These men will form the 
nucleus of an important service com- 
posed solely of enlisted men. Rear Ad- 
miral Crowninshield, chief of tho bu- 
reau of navigation, believes that. De- 
sides resulting in the government m 
obtaining efficient service, the employ- 
ment of natives will spread respect for 
the flag and create a strong feeling of 

loyalty. „ . , . , 

Reports received from Rear Admiral 

Remey have shown that Americans, 

especially those serving in the fire 


Is the Action of Russia 

With Respect to 


New York, April 8.— Russia's an- 
nouncement of her determination not 
to press to a conclusion the negoti- 
ations respecting China is regarded 
here as a piece of diplomacy, says the 
London correspondent of the Tribune. 
It has become clear during the last few 
days that if the Chinese emperor were 
to give his assent to the projected ar- 
rangement he would find himself con- 
fronted by a tide of opinion among his 
subject.'? that might overwhelm his 
authority. It is also surmised that 
Russia's philanthropic intentions may 
have been quic'^ened by the bellico.=e 
attitude of Japan. 


Over Russia's Decision Not 
to Press China. 

Yokohama, April 8.— The news of Rus- 
sia's decision not to press the Manchur- 
ian agreement was received here with a 
feeling of relief. In anticipation of com- 
plications that might ensue had Russia 
reached another conclusion, the govern- 
ment had resolved to postpone a rum- 

rooms, become quickly debilitated and 
it is necessary to send them to the 
United States or Japan to recuperate. 
It is believed that the health of Fili- 
pinos will not suffer, because they an> 
acclimated, and if they do become ill 
it will be an easy matter for them to 
recover in the Philippines. No difficulty 
will be experienced in obtaining 
trained men. During the fall of 1S99, 
Lieutenant Commander J. V. Coltman, 
now In charge of the enlisted men's 
branch of the bureau of navigation, 
opened the "escuela nautical," or nau- 
tical school to train Filipino youths to 
carry on their inter-island commerce. 
Good results have been obtained from 
this school. 

There is no law specifically authoriz- 
ing the enlistment of Filipinos, but It 
is pointed out that whether the supreme 
court adjudges the natives foreigners or 
citizens, it will make no difference In 
this case, as almost one-fifth of the en- 
listed men of the navy are of foreiprn 

bor of Important state undertakings. In- 
volving large expenditures. 


Central Pacific Train Met 

Disaster Near Wells, 


Ogden, Utah, April 8.— News was re- 
ceived here early today that the Central 
Pacific west-bound overland limited, 
due to arrive in San Francisco at 6:55 

this evening, was wrecked two miles 
east of Wells, Nev. Of the meager de- 
tails of the disaster which are had here, 
it is learned that two firemen were 
killed, that some of the cars of the train 
were badly smashed, and that the Pull- 
mans caught fire. It i« not thought 
there were any fatalities among the pas- 
sengers, as none have been reported to 
division headquarters. The train wa« 
drawn by two engines, both of which 
were badly damaged. Hie cause of th« 
accident is unknown.

A Couple of Bowery Na- 
bobs Are Taken Into 

Suspicions of the Detec* 

tives Result In Their 


Some Missing Plunder 

Is Found In Their 


to be caught 

Capt. Resche 

and Irvine 

home at 

The garish splendor of two of the 

Bowery's most shining lights is in a 

state of eclipse! For some time past the 

police have been carefully watching C. 

O. Swanson and Phillip Connor. They 

were suspected of many robberies, but 

were always too clever 

till last evening, when 

and Detectives Troyer 

trapped them in Swanson's 
u09 Sixth avenue west. 

The -saloon of .Steve Marker, opposite 
the Union depot, was robbed l)etween 
Saturday night and yesterday morning. 
In examining the jdl) the detectives dis- 
covered that the entrance was gained 
without any great trouble and appar- 
ently by the use of a duplicate key. 

Suspicion rested on Swanson. The 
officers knew that he had a pernicious 
habit of making duplicate keys in nearly 
every place where he had worked. They 
also knew that he had been discharged 
from Mr. Marker's employ a short time 

They worked on the case yesterday and 
early last evening decided to make a 
raid on Swanson's home at 309 Sixth 
avenue west. The two detectives 
went in the front way and knocked, 
while Capt. Resche, unobserved, went 
round to the rear door. Mrs. Swan- 
son opened the door to the detectives 
and when they asked for her husband, 
she said that he left the house three 
hours before and she did not know 
where he was. 

As she was telling this, Capt. Resche 
walked in the back way and saw 
Swanson and Connor making prepar- 
ations to give the detectives a hot re- 
ception in case they tried to enter the 
house. The captain slipped in the back 
way and touched Swanson on tho 
.shoulder before he knew there was any 
person else in the room. Ikith fugi- 
tives were so completely surprised that 
they were dazed and the officers t«xjk 
them in custody without the slighte&t 

They denied everything regarding the 
robbery of the Barker saloon. In 
.searching the house the officers found 
several boxe^ of cigars which were 
stolen in this robbery concealed in 
Swanson't: bed. 

Tho two men were locked up and lliis 
morning, in making further investiga- 
tions. Detective Troyer discovered that 
they had pas.<ed a chock which did not 
belong to them last February. This 
check was for $54.40. It was lost by W. 
Murray, a railroad engineer. He was in 
Marker's saloon on Feb. 25, when Swan- 
son was tending bar there. He dropped 
the check on the floor where 't was 
found by Mr. Marker, who handed it to 
the bartender with instructions to turn 
it over to the owner in case he shO'ild 
show up. The liartender then told the 
proprietor that the check was worth- 
less, and that he had burned it up. 

He gave the check to Phillip Connor, 
however, and Connor cashed it at the 
clothing store of Charles Erickson, on 
the strength of a fraudulent identifica- 
tion he established l)y stealing letters 
from TV'. Murray. He exhi;.itrd rhese 
letters, which were in the sam-- writin.g 
ar the check, and the money was hand- 
ed over. 

In police court this afternoon Swan- 
son was arraigned for stealing this 
check, and Connor for pa.ssing it and 
accepting the money, which he had no 
right to. Both were bound over, and 
tliH robbery case will not be l>rought 
ugainst them till the meeting of the 
grand Jury.

Knights Templar Annual 

Easter Event at St. 


Duluth eommandery, Knights Templar, 
about 100 strong, attende<l the services at 
the St. Paul's Episcopal church yesterday 
aftemoun. As usual, the services were 
very beautiful and impressive, the music 
being exceptionally tine. The sermon tor 
the occasion was "The Idealism of the 
Crusader," delivered by Dr. Ryan aud 
showing that the Crusader's chivalrcms- 
ness and unfjuestioning re^-eronoe of hoi.v 
thlngs ha.s exerted a potent inutlence iii 
the progress of the world's oivilization 
and the growth of Christianity. After th.i 
services at the church. the knights 
marched back to tht- Masonic Temple, 
where they went ihrougii the ceremony 
of reliKhtlng the tai»ers that were extin- 
guished at the Maunday-Thursday ban- 
ciuet at the Spalding hotel. This cere- 
mony was public ancl opeai lo tlio families 
and friends of the fraternity, and w.js 
wiinessed by a large crowd. The rite is a 
Very solemn and impressive one. and was 
participate*! in by the officers of A. T. C. 
Plerson. Chapter of Rose St. Croix. 

Dr. Ryan's text was taken from St. 
Matthew xill:52, ;i.nd was as follows: "A 
man «*•»*• which bringeth forth 
out of his treasure things new and old.'" 

Dr. Ryan rcferrcil to the old tradition 
that the year 10t>l was supnosi^d to wit- 
ness «be end of the world, wnen the belief 
instead of making men religious started 
them into all kinds of rioting and prac- 
tices of immorality "But when that vear 
c-ame and went and the people found "that 
the worlil would ccr.tinue on just the 
same, the^y settled down to oplinan,- life 
and religion again, became desirable and 
spread broadcast over Europe. Two re- 
sults followed, that were important 
among many others, the birth of chivalry 
and cru.sades. In days tho ffiw weire 
powerful and the many were oppessed. 
The whole country was in tho grasp of 
the feudal lords, the countryside was wild 
and travelers were beset by robl>ers every- 
where. It was the spirit of Christ that 
spurred up the nobler souls of the times 
to become knights errant for the weak-^r 
and the oppressed, and tiie knighti" cul »- 
vated courage, honor and mercy. This 
was a big advance over the customs of 
the times, it was an extension and appli- 
cation of the Christian principles which 
in the present day have merged in the 
courteous gentllJy that is reiftned, tact- 
ful and un»elflsh»ao a degree never before 
developed In mankind.
