Gambler Hayward Confesses That He Hired
a Thug to Do the Bloody Work
Minneapolls, Ile. A.-Adry Hayward
has co,nftesed that Harry T. Hayward
p)lanned the murder of Mins ('atherinel

at the 4'zark flats, committed the decdl.

and locked up In the central station.

where his wife is employed in a hotel,
and there had the clothing washed.
lie returned to Minneapolis and sold
some of the clothing to a pawnbroker
on Washington avenue south. The re
mainder of the clothing was undoubted

flats. The motive for the crime was
securing the insurance of Miss Glng's
Last evening the mayor *nt to the
West hotel and repaired at once to a
secluded room on the top floor, where
he was soon Joined by Detective Hoy,
who had In charge Blixt, the engineer.
For some time the mayor and detective
sweated their man, apparently without
success, but soon it was evident that
they had struck a lead which they ex
pected to develop well, for they sent in
hot haste for the county attorney.
Then the conference was resumed. Be
fore long Detective Hoy was sent away
In a carriage and returned with BIIxt's
wife. Ole Ericson, who did the work
around the Osark, was introduced into
the circle. Then the court of inquiry
settled down to business, and during
the long session which followed Sher
IfN Eige and a couple of his deputies,
with Superintendent Smith, put in an
appearance. About 12:30 Sheriff Ege
emerged and said: "We have the man
who did the shooting and are going to
arrest him In a few minutes. Bllxt is
The sheriff returned upstairs and
within five minutes Detective Hoy had
come down, taking Blixt with him to
the lock-up. As soon as he arrived
Erlcson was taken to the lock-up. The
charge of murder was also entered
It appears that the scheme was
broached by Harry Hayward to Adry
Hayward, and that the latter attempted
to dissuade his brother from the com
mission of such a bloody crime. When
he became convinced that Harry was
determined to carry out his scheme, he
went to Mr. Stewart, who has been
more than a friend to the family, and
told him of the plot. Stewart took no
stock in the story, but when he learned
of the crime he at once communicated
with the authorities and informed the I
of the story that Adry had told hin,.
Working upon this information the of
ficers ferreted out the mystery. The
details are largely to be worked out.
The offlcers themselves are not entirely
satisfied how the murder was commit
ted. They are, however, satisfied that
they have the right parties in custody.
Adry Hayward has been taken to
St. Paul for safe keeping. He is ex
pected to make a written confession of
the whole plot. His attorneys are very
indignant at the action of the author
itles in preventing them from 'seeing
their client. The manner In which his
nerve was finally broken, and he was
induced to confess, is sensational.
When Adry was first taken under
detention and the sweating process ap
plied he was totally invincible. His
course in all of the terrors which were
applied to him to induce him to confess,
and other appeals made, together with
confronting him with pretended proofs,
to which levers were applied by Assist
ant County Attorney Hall with all the
consummate skill he was able to bring
to bear. was greatly admired. He
stood like a mountain in a storm, ab
"I know nothing whatever," Adry
retorted constantly. Finally he ex
plained, "If all you say is true, and I
knew aught which would tend to con
vict Harry, still would I keep my mouth
closed; I would not have the blood of
my brother on my hands."
Hlixt is said to have been implicated
In the burning of the buildings, in the
insurance of which the Haywards were
interested. It has developed that Illat
left the flats at 7 o'clock Monday night
and returned at 9:10. Blixt had former

Murdered Their Employer and Packed Him
in a Case.
Chicago. Dec. 8.-John B. Jersey to
day cnfessed that he, with Edward
Jordan, murdered A. D. Barnes, whose
mutilated body was found in a French
shipping case yesterday. Both Jersey
and Jordan are under arrest. They
were the employee of Barnes, and the
motive for the crime is thought to have
been rivalry between Jordan and
Barnes for the ohlef Janitorship of the
Hiawatha building, Jordan being the
first assistant. Jordan has exhibited
remarkable coolness throughout, hav
ing been the first to identify the body.
Jersey said that Jordan, on the after
noon of the murder, gave him some
money and told him to get a few drinks
and be back to work at 8 o'clock that
night. When he reappeared Jordan
asked him to tL ,'y out the shipping
case, and in so doing some blood from
the box ran out into Jersey's sleeve.
He asked Jordan what that meant and
he told him that there was a dead man
in the box, and he had better keep
quiet. The badly scared Jersey kept
silent until the terrors of the "sweat
box" wrung the story from him.
This afternoon Annie Mahoney con
fessed her knowledge of the Barnes
murder. She told the police she was
present when Jordan killed Barnes, and
said the murder was committed last
Tuesday, and since that time, according
to the woman's story, she helped put
the body in a box, and on Thursday
night helped Jordan to hire an express
wagon. She added that she had lived
with Barnes for five years. Her sister
was present while the t.wman was
making the confession.
Pursuing the Train Robbers.
Fort Worth. Tex., De. 8.-Pursuit of
the train rohhbers Is still being pushed,
and It is reported that different posses are
getting the fugitives In close quarters.
The robbers, at last accounts, were in
Parker county, northwest of this city,
heading for the Indian territory, with the
rangers trying to head them off. It has
been learned from reliable source that
their hooty's value will reach high up in
the thousands, the estimate now being
as high as $14,.000. Express officials here
decline to make any statement of the loss.
but enough has been learned to warrant
the statement that it is above $lu),I)a.
There Is also a great deal of talk among
state and city officials of there being In
side men who gave pointers to the three
men who (lid the work.
Ltndon. Dee. 8.--Reginald Handerson,
charged with the murder, on Nov. 26,
of the woman Dawes, in Kensington,
was arraigned to-day. He is a tall.
dark, well built youth of gentlemanly
appearance. He seemed extremely de
pressed. A letter which the police re
ceived from Dublin, giving details of
how the girl was murdered was read.
It was signed "Jack, the Ripper." It is
said to be in the prisoner's handwrlt
Ing. After formal evidence had been
presented the prisoner was remanded.
Murdered in Bed.
Chicago, Dec. 8.--Nichholas Seguda. a

I;Paragraph 13:0 Is the one which is
llmost Ilk-ely to be rejected. It runs thun:
"Anly perslon who shall, In a manner cal
culaled to endanger public peace, pub
licly Incite the dlfferent classes of popu
lation to acts of violence, shall be fined
up, to 600 marks, or be Imprisoned for a
period not exceeding two years. The
amea punishment will be dealt to any
one, who, In a manner endangering the
mputlic peace, shall publicly attack re
ligion, monarchy, marriage, family, or
property, by insultlnlg utterances."
The fight will rage around the above
paragraph, which will be opposed not
only by socialists and liberals, but by
other parties. For Instance, the anti
Semites and CathoHcs oppose it. The
orthodox Catholics do not recognize the
validity of civil or mixed marriages, yet
both are perfectly legal, and any at
tack upon them, even by a priest from
the pulpit, would be violation of the
law. The antl-Semtted are also liable
to punishment for anti-Jewish agita
tion. The Vorwaerts, the sociallst or
gan, to-day says this paragraph Is mod
elled on an act of the state of Illionls,
under which the anarchists were
hanged In 1887. Debate on the bill will
be opened by Chancellor Von Hohen
lohe, after the Christmas recess.
According to the Cologne (tasette,
owing to Thursday's scene in the reich
stag, a bill will be introduced giving the
reichatag power to repress similar
scenes of disorder.
Prince Hohenlohe is to make his first
speech in the capacity ot chancellor of
the empire next Tuesday. Emperor
William, after attending numerous
public functions at the beginning of the
week, has started for Hummelshein, to
participate in a hunting party on the
estate of the duke of Saxe-Altenberg.
His majesty will return to Berlin to
morrow, that he may attend the service
in honor of the three-hundredth annl
versary of the birth of Gustavus Adol
phus of Sweden.
According to announcement made to
day, the emperor's song "To Aegir"
has produced 30,000 marks, which will
be handed over to the building fund
of the William I. memorial cathedral.
An interesting fact In connection with
this song has just transpired. The
Maennergesang Verein, In accordance
with their statutes, recently sent the
emperor a diploma of membership and
gold ducat on account of their per
zurmance or uln song, "To Aegir." The
emperor has Just replied expressing
thanks for the honor done him and say
ing that the golden ducat will ever re
mind him of the beautiful city on the
Danube. German song and music have
met with remarkable encouragemett.
The Hamburg senate recently sent two
experts, Herr Boysen and Herr Volters,
to England with instructions to inspect
the methods obtaining there with re
gard to the importation of American
cattle. They have returned witll their
report that no hindrance Is placed in
the importation of American cattle on
account of Texas fever, and English
authorities regard it as quite innocuous.
It remains to be seen whether this re
port will lead to the withdrawal of the
restrictions placed upon the Importa
tion of American cattle and meat into
it. Knille, representing R. G(. Dun &
Co., has returned here from a circular
trip through Germany. In an inter
view to-day with a correspondent of the
Associated Press, Knllle said: "The
most palpable revival of export trade
to America Is noticeable In the textile
industries of Saxony, and especially in
the cities of (Ilauchau, Gera, Chemnltz,
(eritz, i'luaen and (Grlmmltschau. This
is due to the fact that the tariff law
lowered the duties on textiles about 30
or 40 per cent., to take effect after Jan.
I. In9G. Large orders are now being
placed. The Crefeld silk industry is re
viving slightly. The full effect of the
new law will be experienced within a
year. A revival in export rade to Amer
ica is also occuring In woolens, china.
ware, glasware, loves, toys. tinware,
drugs, chemicals, and very largely in
electro-technical articles. The, tariff
mudle had suspended the effects of the
world's fair. but they are now hecoming
apparent. The American exports, which
teII' sure to Ilnc're'ase, are furnlliture, carl'

When Weinstein & Co. comi,leted ar
rangements with Hinger and Fligmun
to enter into the business of retalling
high class dry goods, it was thte mutual
desire to make the strongest possible
effort to keep people from sendink to

and small assortments had forced half
the people to send to eastern cities.
What low prices and large assortments

educated. Andl h.e took Joe away and
starited him toward a good education,
as he finally graduated at Yale.
"When Joe, Brown went to ask my
uncle. Joseph Grisham. for his daugh
ter, he put his case this way: 'I am
$1,S00 worse ,ft than nothing, but I can
say that not a cent of It has been
wasted. It has been expended In get
ting an education.' 'Well, what does
Elizabeth say?' asked uncle. 'I have
told her all,' said Joe. 'All right, then,'
says uncle. 'here's a check for $1,RIO to
get you out of debt, and here's $10,000
to start on. Now, keep out of debt.'
Joe Brown was a splendid lawyer, and
got ahead rapidly. He was soon chosen
circuit judge, and down there that of

political machine, and every seslion the
legislature had to make an appropopria

Ben Hill had promised to sign a bill to
sell the road. Brown said If the legis

sign it. However, he told his friends
he did not see any necessity for selling
the road. as he believed It could be
made to pay.
"Joe Brown was elected, and he took
hold of that road, made his old friend.

it earning money. The legislature
didn't pass any bill for its sale. The
road not only paid expenses, but p'tt
money in the treasury and paid off the
debt. Brown, at the end of the twoi.

imously. his opponent getting only
about 1.800 votes. The constitution only
allowed a governor two terms in suc'

to make the governor's term six years,
