Burke thought that the flag behind the
speaker ought to be up-to date and his
point was well taken, for a new one was
ordered and the old one was consigned to
the limfto of some dust-covered shelf in
the capitol basement. So far all was well.
Unfortunately for the peace of the old
flag, Mr. Fitzgerald of New York presented
a resolution in tiie house just before the
holiday recess providing that it should be
turned over to the historical society of
Long Island, composed of ladies, with 4he
understanding that the society should pre
serve it and hand it down to the future
with due ceremony. The resolution was
on the point of b*>ing adopted when up
popped a member from Philadelphia with
the announcement that the discarded em

ladies y>clety of that city and presented
to congress, should be given back to the
society now that it is no longer to be used.
The suggestion would have been timely
and to the point, but for the fact that thai
ladies' society aforesaid is no longer in
existence. Some of the original mem
bers are still living, but the society ceased
to be, a good many years ago and having
left no successor the Long Island people
think there is no reason why it should
now be recognized in the return of the

of Minneapolis the other day,to a Jour

Special to The Journal.
Northfield, Minn.. Jan. 1. —There is re
joicing among the faculty, students and
friends of O.rleton college over the fact
that the remaining $50,000 of the $100,000
to be raised in order to secure Dr. Pear
son's gift of $50,000 has been secured and
to-day the college has a new endowment
Ai oummpncement time one year ago
D.K. Pearsons of Chicago made the college
a proposition that if it would raise the
sum of $100,000 from other sources he
would give $50,000 to the institution; $50,
--000 of this amount was to toe forthcoming
by June 1, lftOO. and the remainder by Jan.
1, 1901. Upon the securing of the first half
of the $100,000. Dr. Pearsons agreed to pay
one-half of the amount pledged by him
self. An active canvass was begun by
President Strong and by June 1 he had ob
tained the required $50,000. Dr. Pearsons,
with his characteristic promptness, paid
over $25,000, thus making the institution
richer by $75,000.
The raising of the remaining $50,000 has
been attended with more difficulty, and at
the close of school for the holiday recess
nearly half of the amount was still to be
secured. The students pledged over $2,000
toward the endowment fund. Thursday
evening last the amount still to be raised
was $15,000, with but three days remain
ing. That evening an offer came, stating
that if the city of Northfleld would pledge
$5,000, the other $10,000 would be forth
coming. A canvass of the city was at
once begun and the citizens of Northfleld
generously responded, as they have ever
done to such calls, and the amount was
New Year's Day thus sees the institu
tion richer by $150,000 endowment as a
result of Dr. Pearson's generous gift. The
trustees, faculty and students, together
with those immediately connected with
the college, have given about 840,000 of
the $100,000 required to be raised.
The first large endowment of the col
lege was made by William Carleton of
Charlestown, Mass., who gave the sum
of $50,000, which was devoted by the
trustees to the general endowment fund.
The name of the institution, which had
been Northfleld college, was changed to
Carleton college, in recognitio-n of Mr.
Carleton's gift. Miss Susan Willis, after
wards Mrs. Carleton, was among the first
who responded to Carleton's growing
needs, and gave the college $10,000. Willis
hall is named in her honor. A grand
daughter of Mr. Carleton, Miss Lucy
Packard Currier, created a fund designed
to provide for nonresident lecturers.
The John Chandler Williams fund was
founded by John Chandler, one of the
early settlers of Chicago, and is devoted
to the endowment of the chair of mental
and moral philosophy. The president's
chair is also endowed by the Martha
Walker Wilkinson fund. The Horatio
Nelson Brinswade fund endows the chair
of Latin and literature.
In ISB3 Dr. Edward H. Williams of
Philadelphia gave to the colege the sum
of $12,000 to meet the expense of erect
ing a science building. The gift was a
memorial to his son, who had but re
cently died. The science building was
named accordingly Williams hall.

Special to The Journal.
Blue Earth, Minn., Jan. I.—A new depar
ture was introduced by a local firm to-day
which will be watched with no little interest
by Minnesota merchants who have endeav
, ored to solve the credit problem. The^Jlrm
dops a general merchandise trade, and in
order to place its business entirely on a
cash basis, has opened a banking depart
ment. Customers who desire credit are given
an opportunity to obtain money at the bank
ing department, giving their notes, which are
drawn for short-time loans without interest.
The cash thus obtained goes to the mercan
tile side of the establishment, which is thus
kept on a strictly cash basis. The proprie

others are watching to see the outcome. So

Conteata in Several State* for Keata

Washington, Jan. 1. —Legislatures about
to meet in various states will be called
upon to elect at least one-flfth of the
United States senate. Many of the con
tests under way are to fill vacancies that
have attracted national attention.
Matthew S. Quay, republican leader in
Pennsylvania, who was denied a seat in
the senate on Governor Stone's appoint
ment, is in Harrisburg fighting for his po
litical life. It is expected that he will
disappear from politics if he is defeated
for re-election. The contest is very bit
ter, yet, singular as it may seem, .Quay
•thus far is the only candidate in sight and
declares he has 127 members pledged to
him in writing.
Another fight is-in Delaware. The
fight there centers around J. Edward Ad
dicks, a gas manipulator of Boston, Mass.,
who took up a residence in Delaware, and
for twelve years has been trying to be
elected to the United States senate. He
was defeated in 1889 by Anthony Higglns,
and was again a candidate four years ago,
when Colonel Henry Dupont received the
certificates, but was rejected by the sen
ate owing to a technicality. There are
really three political parties in Delaware
—the regular republicans, the Addlcks or
union republicans, and the democrats.
None of these parties has enough votes to
There is much doubt about the re-elec
tion of Senator William E. Chandler in
New Hampshire, who has been a member
of the senate since 1887. Senator Chand
ler ascribed the opposition to him to
William A. Clark of Montana out of re
venge for Chandler's attitude in the sen
ate last year, when Clark's certificate to
a seat was rejected on account of charges
of bribery In the Montana legislature. It
is singular that Chandler is still fighting
desperately now in New Hampshire for re
election, while Clark has practically the
game In his own hands in Montana.
Montana, like Delaware, will elect two
senators this winter —one to fill the va
cancy now existing over which Clark and
Daly fought so bitterly, and the other to
succeed Thomas H. Carter.
Nebraska Is another state that will elect
two senators —one to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Senator Hayward,
now temporarily filled by the appointment
of Senator Allen, and the other to succeed
Senator John M. Thurston, whose term will
expire on March 4.

Omaha, Neb., Jan. I.—E. A. Cudahy says
he has taken precautions to protect his
children from attacks by bendits even
though they made an effort to carry out
their threats. He has several armed
guards on duty at his home all the time.
It was suggested in the council meeting
that the wrath of the bandits was likely
to be directed toward Mayor Moores be
cause of his activity in the matter, but his
honor remarked grimly that he had heard
the whistle of too many bullets while serv

The mysterious Eloise V. Tarrell who
has been so very active in writing letters
I touching the Cudahy case, may have been
| uncovered. The police say that the woman
j is a man, Harold Teprlni, former night
clerk of the Windsor Hotel. This was
suspected by some of the local newspaper
men, and some of the Eloise letters were
compared with some of the night clerk's
writing. The chief of police has .sent
wires to Cincinnati and elsewhere to ar
rest Terrini on sight and he will be
brought to Omaha. This man disappeared j
the night before th^ kidnapping.
Crowe stopped at tiic hot*>l, as Terriui'
proved in some of his letters. All of the
Eloise letters were written on Windsor
Hotel letter heads. In some of these let
ters Eloise observed that she had stood
within ten feet of the place where Cudahy
deposited his gold ransom and mentioned
the manner in which Mr. Cudahy deposited
the money, the way he turned his horses
and other minute details, which convinces ■
the detectives that the person writing the j
letters really witnessed the payment of the i
reward or had been given the details by )
someone that did see the act.
The motive for the exposure of Crowe is
believed to be that Terrini was not treated
fairly in the division of the spoils. Eddie
Cudahy tells of a conversation he heard :
between the robbers in which the Jailer i
remarked that he had a notion to kill the j
captain beoause he claimed to have lost j
$20,000 of the gold in passing over a creek
after securing it and he did not believe it.
Terrini's description suits that of the sec

Some of the detectives, however, believe
that Terrini knows nothing of the case .
other than what he has read, and is

Xew York, Jan. I.—This morning's is
sue of the World Is supposed to represent
the ideal newspaper from the standpoint
of Alfred Harmsworth, the London pub
lisher, who ha 3 made such a success of his
thirty ventures in the daily newspaper field
in the British capital. Mr. Pulitzer gave
Mr. Harmsworth the opportunity to give a
practical illustration of his ideas of what
American newspapers should be. Amer
ican newspapers, he had said, were suf
fering from what he was pleased to call
Instead of the sixteen blanket pages in
which the World usually appears, it is of
thirty-two pages of the size of the Youth's
Companion or ladies' Home Journal.
The big "ad" type headlines, to which the
readers of the World have been used for
many a day, are not In evidence. An in
novation so far as Xew York papers are
concerned is a double-column epitome on
the first page of the entire paper, calcu
lated to give a busy man an idea of the
news on the succeeding pages.
Mr. Harmsworth's ideas of important
news may be judged from the fact that he
leads his first page with a London item
announcing the conferring of kaighthood
on Hiram S. Maxim, which appeared in
every afternoon paper in Xew York yes
terday. The second and the third col
umns are devoted to the news epitome.
The fourth or last column of the page
contains the lead of Xew York's celebra
tion of the opening of the century. The
cartoon is in the lower rlghthand corner
of the page as though Editor Harmsworth
thought little of it. Paid reading notices
disfigure the bottom of ev^ry column on
the page. As Mr. Harmsworth had com
plete control of the sheet and could have
thrown the advertisements to a back page

FREEMAN'S DOUBLE LIFE
HAWKEVE MIRDKRER A BAD LOT
■'Woman In the Case" From Chi
cago—lona Friends Are Seek
Special to The Journal.
Estherville, lowa, Jan. 1. —Investigation
into the history of John A. Freeman, who
has confessed to having killed his wife
and then burned their home to conceal
the crime, reveals evidence that he has
led a double life many years and that he
is guilty of other crimes than the ones
he has confessed.
The county attorney of Emmett county,
in searching the premises for evidence,
discovered an envelope addressed to Miss
Christina Holtgren, 808 Xorth Park ave
nue, Chicago. As the envelope contained
two pretty Christmas cards it is surmised
there is "a woman in the case," whose
identity has not yet been disclosed. Other
lettersr showed that Freeman had lived in
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and later
in Thorsby, Aia. His full history has
not yet been uncovered, but will be.
The sheriff of Emmett county received
a letter from a man making inquiries
about Freeman, saying he bad a son of
that name who formerly lived in What
Cheer, and was anxious to learn about
him. The sheriff also received an inquiry
from What Cheer saying that a John A.
Freeman was wanted there for forgery.
Another fact discovered is that the con
fessed murderer formerly lived in Moline;
that he was at one time manager for
Nya Pressen, a newspaper; that he also
taught Sunday school and did some
preacmng, that he packed his goods to
leave, when suddenly his house caught
fire and burned; that the case -was so
suspicious that Freeman never claimed
the insurance, and never made an account
ing of his connection with the newspaper.
Freeman avoids publicity now that he
has confessed to the county attorney and
before the coroner's Jury, and quietly
awaits the fate that he knows is his.

President McKinley will refuse to comply
with the direction of the senate to lay before
It the report of Abraham L. I^awshe, who,
under the direction of the secretary of war,
made an investigation of the postal accounts
of Cuba. The ground upon which he will base
tliis refusal is the failure of the senate to In
