Counnencement ot the TestimonyTwo
Witnesses ExaminedThe Libel
A^inst Mollison and the Austin "Resis
At 9:30 yesterday morning, the hour to
which the high court of impeachment ad
journed Saturdayand the fifth day of the
regular sittingthere were but eighteen mem
beis present, three less than a quorum, as shown
by the roll call.
Senator Morton moved that a recess be taken
to 2:30P.M., but, Senator Edgerton objecting,
and stating he thought a quorum would soon
be present, the motion was withdrawn. The
President, at the same time, stated that a mo
tion for a recess was not in order.
After waiting some fifteen minutes, and
none of the absentees putting in art appear
ance, and two or three of those answering to
the roll call having vacated their seats. Senator
Nelson moved call of the Senate, which was
had, and the sergeant-at-arms instructed to re
port absentees in their seats. At 11:30, upon
Senator Edgerton's motion, further proceedings
under the call were dispensed with, and upon
the same Senator's motion a recess was then
had to 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
Upon reassembling at 2 o'clock with twenty
three members presentwhich number was
subsequently swelled to nearly a full Senate
Senator Nelson offeted a resolution that coun

quested to re-argue the questions involved in
the motion of respondent to quash the tenth
Senator Edgerton endeavored to say some
thing upon the motion, but was called to order
by the president, with the remark that the
rules did not permit debate, and Senator Nel
son's motion was adopted.
A motion by Senator Edgerton, that the
officers ot the court be allowed the same com
pensation as officers of the Senate, was adopted.
Mr. Mead, of managers, said as they con
mdered article ten one of tbe most important
of the charges made, and as no testimony
would be introduced for two or three days,
bearing upon it, the} desired that the further
consideration of such article, as ordeied by the
court, be postponed until there was a full
Senator EdgertonI move we go into secret
Bcssion. This delay is adding greatly to the
expense of this trial, and the Senate should
consider the necessity and advisability of re
opening argument before deciding to do so.
The motion was adopted and the chamber
The doors reopened, the President announced
the Senate had decided that the managers
should proceed with the introduction of evi
dence this afternoon, and that to-morrow (this)
morning, if desired, the argument upon the
motion to quash could be lenewed
D. S. B. MOLLISON.
Manager Mead then called Mr. D. S. B. Mol
hson as the hr&t witness, he being the D. S. B.
Mollison mentioned in the fust article of the
chaiges as indicted for an alleged libel upon
Judge Page, and that thus indicted, Judge
Page vuongfully and maliciously refused to
permit such case to be tried for a term of
cars. Mr. Mollison having appeared and be
ing sworn, proceeded in answer to questions of
Manager Mead, to tell his story, which show of
non-c&sentials as follows:
lie was a rebident of Mower County, living
some 11 miles from Austin. In September,
18G3 he was airested on an indictment found
aqamst him and taken before the dibtrict court
then in session at Austin. Judge Page presid
ing. The following Monday he was arraigned.
The witness detailed at some length a scene
that happened when the indictment was being
read, accusing Page of addressing him in a very
boisterous manner because he needed his head,
threatening to commit him if he did not com
port hinibelt more respectfully. The indict
ment read, Mr. Morrison plead not guilty, and
Judge Page held him in $1500 bail. He
was then proceeding to tell what
took place between him and his
friends. when counsel interposed an
objection, the Senate sustaining the objection.
Continuing his stoiy Mr. Mollison said he told
Page, he did not propose to give bail, but
wanted his trial, but that Page said he would
have.t get some other judge to try the case.
Mr. Mollison then went on to testify that he
appeared at the March term in lb74, when the
case was called and again put over, though he
announced in a loud tone of voice he was leady
tor trial again in September, when the same
proceedings ensued again in March, 1875, at
which term thb cases were called by numbers
instead of by titles as at previous sessions. At
the September term of the same year and at
the ensuing March term, the same line of con
duct was puisued, Page putting the case
off upon the excuse that he had been
unable to secure another judge. At the
following September term, being determined
to bring the issue to trial. Mr. Mollison said
he had his bondsmen surrender him to the
sheriff, and appeared in court, but Page made
no announcement as to his case. He, Mollison,
also teetiii-ed he was ready for trial at every
term of court, and that neither by his own act
or by that of his attorney, Mr. Cameron, or the
county attorney, Mr. Wheeler, had he consent
ed ti a continuance.
Mr. Mollison was cross-examined at some
length by Mr. Losey, who elicited from Molli
son that, when aitested, and before he had
given bail, and was presumably in the custody
of the sheriff, he staid with a friend over Sun
day. He also acknowledged that Judge
Mitchell held a term of court for Judge Page
in July, 1874 that he was in Austin at the
time and in the court, but made no request for
his case to be called. Neither did he hear his
case called by Judge Mitchell. He also testi
fied he was informed no jury had been sum
moned for that term of court, and that to his
best knowledge and belief there was no iury at
He further acknowledged that at no time had
the witnesses been in readiness, but claimed he
could have been in readiness at any time to
proceed in a day or two after notice had been
On the re-rrirect examination, Mr. Mollison
testified that he thought Page was angry when
he fixed his bail at 1,500, and reiteiated his
statement about Judge Mitchell not calling his
case as to there not being any jury present.
MB. M. H. DAVIDSON,
of the firm of Davidson & Bassford, publishers
of the Austin Register, in which paper the
communication of Mr. Mollison, claimed
to be libellous by Page, appeared, was the
next witness. Mr. Davidson testified as to his
indictment for the publication of that article,
and was going on to tell what occurred between
him and Page in reference to such publication
before the Mollison indictment was found,
when objection was made by counsel that such
conversation was foreign to the charge made,
and that the managers had no right to carry
their examination beyond the distinct proposi
tion made in the charge. No allegation had
been made fhat Mollison had been wrongfully
or illegally indicted, but simply that having
been indicted Judge Page kept him upon ten
ter-hooks by refusing to give him a trial.
Mr. Clough, tor managers, argued that the
evidence was essential as going to show the
mind of Judge Page in first inaugurating the
prosecution, and then refusing a trial. Mr.
Clough argued the point at some length, at the
conclusion of which the court by a vive voce vote
decided not to receive the question.
Manager Mead then changed the question,
and Mr. Davidson was proceeding to answer,
and had got as far as stating he had an inter
view with Judge Page in his office, when counsel
interpse an objection, and the managers
argued for the admissability of the evidence,
for similar reasons advanced as to the previous
The aigurnent concluded, Senator Nelson
moved the Senate retire to consider the question.
Senator DoranBefore the Senate retires I
wish to submit an order that counsel hereafter
refrain from argument ot evidence until the
final summing up of their case.
Senator NelsonI now renew my motion that
the Senate retire to consider the point raised
by counsel and the order.
This secret session lasted about three-quarters
of an hour, and upon the doors being reopened
the president announced that the Senate has
adopted an order that inquiry can be had into
all matters of Judge Page in reference to is
sues involved in the Mollison indictment, and
as to his feelings toward Mollison, and that
the evidence may cover the time before as
well as after the finding of thee^ence indictments.
Also, that he was instructen th say to counsel
that this argument otf objections they would
confane themselvems teo the question before the
two weeks before the Mollison indictment,
Judge Page called at his office, and in the con
versation asserted the publication of the Mol
lison letter was libellous, and that if it was not
retracted he should hold the publishers respons
able. Tbe result of that interview was the
publication of an explanation, not a retrac
Here the managers asked the production of
a letter written by Page to Davidson after the
appearance of the explanation, to which coun
sel objected, but after brief argument the
court decided to admit it, and he was proceed
ing to tell the circumstances attending the
reception and return of Judge Page's letter
when counsel again interposed objections,
argument followed, the court deciding to
admit. The letter when read proved to be a
demand that a retraction be published at the
head of the paper on penalty of prosecution.
The letter was returned to Page by Mr. Bleigs,
the bearer, at Page's request.
Mr. Davidson then testified as to his being in
court at two of the times when the Mollison
case was pending, though he could not recol
lect which, at one of which Mollison announced
his readiness to proceed, but the case was put
Manager then asked for the reading of the
letter of Mollison, alleged to be libeleous but
counsel objected. Objection overruled and
article read. I was a decidedly spicy attack
upon some of the Republican managers in
Mower including a railroad decison by Page,
who is designated the great purifier.
This ended his direct examination and Mr.
Losey proceeded to the cross examination, dur
ing which Mr. Davidson testified that he had
since published a full retraction in reference to
the decision of Judge Page in the railroad
The production of the retraction was ob
jected to by managers, but the court decided to
admit it and it was read. In his further cross
examination, Mr. Davidson admitted that he
was interested in the prosecution and
that his firm contributed $3,750
toward the fund for that purpose.
Upon the re-direct examination Mr. Davidson
testified that the letter was published August
27, 1873, and the retraction Feb. 1878 that he
was advised by his counsel, Gen. Cole, that
Page would be satisfied if such retraction was
published, and withdraw the suits.
Cross-examined, he acknowledged tt at his
attorney, Mr. Cole, told him the charge against
Judge Page, as to the railroad matter, was
false, and reiterated his statement as to the
understanding that the trials, both civil and
criminal, against Mollison, as well as himself
and his partner, were to be withdrawn as soon
as the retraction was published.
This ended the session for the day, and at
6 -.30 the court adjourned.
Mention has been made several times of the
prolonged and unaccountable absence from
home of Monroe Sheire, a prominent citizen of
St. Paul, and the anxiety felt by his friends,
owing to his feeble health and mental troubles.
Yesterday Mr. J. Williams, Grand Scribe of
the Odd Fellows of Minnesota, received from
Mr. Sheire his report as Grand Representative,
to be laid before the coming session of the
Grand Encampment next week, and with it an
interesting letter speaking of his health.
The letter is written on the printed letter
head of the Laclede-Bircher Hotel, St. Louis,
and dated "St. Louis, May 2, 1872." I is post
marked on the outside, "Cascades, Wash. Ter.,
May 17." It is as follows:
BBO. WILLIAMS Enclosed you will find my
report to the Grand Encempment. I hardly
know whether it is in a presentable shape or
not. If not, will you be kind enough to correct
it. In this mountain retreat, over a mile above
the level of the sea, and in full view on three
sides of perpetual snow, free from correspon
dence of any kind, and tar from friend or foe.
I have bought to recuperate. Physically, I am
much better. but mentally I cannot
say. The effort to complete my repoTt has
brought on a return of that racking pain in
my head, from which I have si ffered so long.
I had hoped, and still hope, to be with you be
fore the meeting of the grand lodge, but for
fear I cannot, and having a chance, by a very
roundabout course, I forward this to you.
Should I regain my health, and my head
again becomes level, I will be with you once
more. If not, then, like the sailor boy, "far
frsm home and all its charms, far from love's
paternal arms," alone, unknown and unhon
ored, down deep in the main, full many a score
fathom, shall my frame decay.
From the above, it is hoped that Mr. Sheire
is gradually recovering his health. Rest and
quiet will probably restore him fully, and in a
short time we trust he will return, a sound
man physicially and mentally.

claim that my exhibtions spread more canvass,

be the first man who originated and introduced
the use of more than one tent to exhibit a
menagerie and circus. I claim to have more
men and horses in my service than any show

palace coaches, cars and locomotives than any
other show in the world. I claim to have the

than any show ever owned or required. And,
lastly, 1 claim and proclaim that such broad
and unqualified statements as I have made
should be substantiated therefore I offer
twenty-five thousand dollars to anybody any

show a menagerie, museum*, circus and per

Sheriff Becht's illness all day yesterday was
the cause of much anxiety, not only to his
friends but to the whole community, and in
quiries were made at his office, and that of Dr.

periods of the day it ws feared that he would
not live through an hour, and again there
would be some hope of his recovery. The at
tendant physician, Dr. Stamm, called in for
consultation Dr. Brisbine, and both gentlemen
concurred in the gravity and seriousness of the
case. At half-past twelve last night the patient
seemed to rally a little, and gave fresh hope to
the anxious watchers.

on Third street last night about 12 o'clock this
youth of savory reputation made the night

oaths were the most fearful, and the language
the most disgustingly filthy he had ever heard.
Pat thought he had been hard done by, and in
a kigh pitched aggrieved tone, with a pitiful
expression upon his prepossessing countenance,
he complained bitterly of his arrest. He hadn't
done nothing, but the police had orders to run
him in if he was seen in the street after twelve.
He wanted them to get his pals, Jack Cook and
Jerry Mannery, to swear for him that he did no
swearing Sunday night. Held over till this
morning at 10 o'clock.

The Library association had determined to
place all the seats for "The Great Concert" at
the uniform price of one dollar, but on count
ing noses found that with every seat sold the
expenses would only hardly be met. They
were obliged therefore to adopt a graded scale
which will probably suit the purses of more
people and afford a slight profit if all the seats
are sold, and can it be otherwise? The bare
opportunity of listening to one of the world's
greatest artists just in the zenith of her pow
ers, is one never befor offered our citizens, and
easily worth four times the price of any ordi
nary concert, and in this we considetlBflot the
more than ordinary attractions of "The Har
monia Quartette," the oldest and best organ
ization of the kind in Chicago and chosen as
personal friends of the great prima donna. All
things considered this is the cheapest offer ever
made to-us. St. Paul must not be caught nap
ping when one of the immortal names steps
aside from her royal route thro' the earth to
take in our little town. Reserved seats Tues
To.night this jolly troupe of genuine cork
artists will make their always annual welcome
appearance. The advertisment calls for 18 ac
complished performers, six great comedians,
four boss end men, champion song and dance
artists, silver cornet band, etc., etc. All for
25c, 35c and 50c. which of itself will secuie a
crowded house. We clip the following from
the Atchinson Champion of Nov. 20:
The Original Georgia Minstrels arrived in
town yesterday, and appeared on the streets
to-day in uniform. They paraded the streets
with their most excellent and well drilled sil
ver cornet band discoursing music as they
marched. They paused in front of the Patriot
and Cftampion offices, and favored us with the
best street parage it has been our pleasure to
listen to. This troupe is, without doubt, the
best that travels.
Owing to a contemplated change in our bus
iness, we will, from this date, close out our en
tire stock at and below cost for CASH.
