THE LATEST IN CLOTHES
JOHX EASTHAGEST TALKS
Got Hi« Pointer* at the Annual Tail
or* Exchange In Phila
John Easthagen, who has just returned
from the annual Tailors' Exchange at
Philadelphia, says that the exhibit shows
what sort of yoods will be in fevor among
the men the coming season. The styles
of cut will be announced when the plates
are issued. The popular cloifc for sack
suits will be fancy suitings in soft goods
with invisible plaids and stripes. The
color will be a mixture of a brownish tint,
or of olive green. In some goods the
plaid can scarcely be seen. There were
on exhibition in the eastern markets
pretty oxfords for overcoats. The ox
fords still remain in favor.
The top coats will be about the same
cut, but the spring overcoats will be very
full with a drop straight down from -the
shoulders. They will be long enough to
cover a frock coat. The inverness will
hold in favor as an accompaniment of full
dress suits. The Raglan has gone out.
In fact it is not worn in the east by well
dressed men. The vestings will be fancy
and double-breasted always. The trousers
for frock coats will be of striped goods
as before, Mr. Easthagen says that the
work of Minneapolis tailors ranks well
with anything done in Chicago and New
York. "They don't make any better
clothes down there," he said, than they
do here in Minneapolis. In fact, Tom
Pease of this city was the best-dressed
man of the lot."
RESOLUTION JNOT SUFFICIENT
A Reduction of Stock: by Resolution
Attorney General Douglas has rendered
an important opinion to Bank Examiner
Pope.. He holds that stockholders who
have decreased the capital stock of a bank
merely by resolution at a stockholders'
meeting have Acted illegally. They can
neither increase nor decrease capital stock
except by amending the articles of incor
poration and filing the amendments with
the secretary of state. This invalidates
the act of a number of stockholders' meet

THE ELOQUENT NYE
His * Effort in Behalf of ) Frank H.
SWAYS JURY AND ALL HEARERS
Attorney,for the Defense, Denounce*
'■the Rendy-Made Co'nfes-'
. . ■lou" of Rooney. '.
The afternoon in the Hamilton trial was
taken up with the address to the pury for
the defense of Prank M. Nye.
Mr. Nye began speaking at exactly 2
o'clock. He thanked the jury and said he
was thankful to the press for the way in
which the boys had stood by Hamilton.
•'No family circle gathers about this
boy. No father, brothers and sisters. No
mother's love sustains him—drifted out
upon the unknown sea in his infancy. In
the midst of all this agony, in the midst
of all of it, there Is much to be thankful
for. In ail the raking and scouring of the
city here by the state, they have not
brought one atom of testimony against
this boy's character.
Only in the matter of drink can they
speak ill of him. No stain rests upon his
character. I am thankful that we live
in the tide of Christian civilization and
of human sympathy and law. I am thank
ful that the presumption of the law is
that you should believe in right—in in
nocence rather than in wrong.
A man shall not be found guilty until
twelve of his fellow men have been com
pelled to find him guilty beyond a rea
sonable doubt. We talk about human
legislation, but law in the abstract is the
will of God—all enduring law is derived
from that source.
Only those principles of law reflected
from God can endure.
"If you have got to find this boy guilty,
you must so find beyond a reasonable
doubt. There must be that feeling of im
partiality which is associated with honest
minds, directing your minds, before you
determine this case. This little reason of
ours often errs and therefore, the law
says, you must find a verdict ever with a
reasonable doubt in mind.
A Reasonable Doubt.
The expression "reasonable, doubt" has
often been used as synonymous with
"moral certainty." There is as much
mystery to-day as there was the hour
of Day's death. We have not got to ex
plain anything. We have not got to tell
you how Leonard Day met his death.
"Have they proved their case?
Would not the same evidence, generally
speaking, bo used against Mr. Evans or
"With the exception of the ready-made
confession of the police officer here, there
is no testimony adduced in this case that
would not have been relevant and per
tinent in an action against the other
men there. Why, the confession would
have been the same with the name
changed, no matter who was on trial.
,"The county attorney has undertaken
to tell you just who was sober and who
was Intoxicated that night. He would
have you believe he knows absolutely.
He says it is inconceivable that a man
should testify as Rooney did and speak
falsely. After he has had from two to
four years' experience he will find it no
difficult matter to secure a ready-made
confession from a police officer. I will
show before I get through that Rooney
was as false a man as ever took the
stand In court."
A Drunken Brawl.
• Mr. Nye then declared that the whole
affair was a drunken brawl —Gary was very
drunk. Canfield, Hamilton and Evans
were very drunk —Evans, the worst All
the men in the room were more or less
intoxicated. They were all drinking men,
it was a late hour. Now they were either
under the influence or they testified
wrongly. There is no question about it.
They were all drinking.
"The learned state's attorney has the
temerity to say that nobody was drunk but
Barbe and possibly Hamilton. I will stake
my reputation on Barbe, his presence of
mind, his sympathy. Everything points
to the fact that he took the clearest not©
of what happened. Barbe was by all odds
the soberest man,there. He was the
clearest man in that whole gang.
"Barbe's statement that the fight was
general is true. He pulled his friend Ben
nett out of a crowd by the legs. O'Malley
heard the cries and noise from the office
of that great hotel. He went in to hear
Evans calling 'I will cut your heart out. 1
"Drunken men will gravitate around a
row. Do you tell me those fellows had
no hand in this thing. Keep this always
in mind. These witnesses for the state
are all ashamed. They want to appear
as far away from Day as possible. I don't
blame them, but I object to their ridicul
ous stories. They were all taking an in
terest in Force and Evans. Why did they
pay no attention to Day and Hamilton?
"I felt the very next day there was
something wrong when they all testified
'We didn't see.' George, who is indignant
at the slightest imputation that he was
under the influence of liquor—he didn't
see anything. They were all mixed up in
affair, either as peace makers or some
More Than One Knife.
"There was more than one knife used in
that trouble, gentlemen. The scalp wound
was made by a smaller instrument than
the one which inflicted the fatal wound
"Now, Dr. Erdmann saw the wounds
and probed them, and he knows what he is
testifying to. As to the difference in the
size of the wounds on the body, they may
have been made with one knife, but the
scalp wound shows there was ' another
knife used than this small one. As to
Doctors Dunsmoor and Weston they ad
mitted that Dr. Erdmann was' far more
competent to judge of the TTounds and
how they were inflicted than one who had
simply listened to a description of them
There were two knives used, gentlemen
and Dr. Erdmann's opinion is certainly
of greater value than those other physi
Theory of a. General Drunk.
Mr. Nye returned to his theory of gen
eral intoxication, speaking of Day's
wounds, Hamilton's injuries, Evans'
wounds, hi* cut and bloody clothes-
Evans—wild and distracted. It was re
marked that Evans and George took a
sneak just as Day received his fatal
wound. Then the two walked to Tenth
street and Third avenue S, Evans without
a hat. Yet the state would have it that
Evans is a very exemplary young man.
"Why, the whole thing casts a strong
suspicion against him as much as against
"The learned counsel for the state took
each man to show that he could not be
guilty and I am glad he did, for it gives
me a chance to reply.
"We can go a good deal of probabili
ties. Truth is truth. Witneeses are not
to be counted, but weighed. Ail the men
on earth can not make falsehood truth
You must weigh testimony In the liirht
of probability." X
"All the teseimony shows that Hamilton
had the best of the first encounter. It was
Hamilton who was on top. It was Hamil
ton who got up and shook hands. He had
demonstrated he was a better man physi
cally than Day. Now would such a man go
off and arm himself with a knife for a second
encounter? No, in nature, no. But it is the
man emarting under defeat, who had called
this defendant a son of a b ,he is the
man most likely to want revenge."
Itye la Very Effective.
rf) Mr. Nye was very effective in de
livering this pint, which seemed to sink
deep into the jurors. He then turned his
attention to Witness Fred George, con-
THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
cerning whom, he said, he would have
to tell the truth. "Fred George has not
told the truth."
Mr. Nye then advanced to the chart
and showed the position of the men and
the location of the trail of blood. The
trail of blood started from the puddle
of water near the body. "Fred George,"
he said, "must have seen eonard Day
fall in a dying condition. Why don't he
tell the truth? Why does he shrink
from it? And why does the county at
torney insist that he has proves that
Mr. George's skirts are clear in this
Force Uoein't Tel ltbe Truth.
"Charles Force is a friend of mine, a client
in fact, but he is not telling the truth."
"Why did George and Force go to their
rooms away from the dying man? Why
didn't the say, My God, let us go back,
murder may be done,' The drunken Ben
nett, good-hearted fellow, aud Barbe,
strangers, are kneeling by the side of Day,
Fred George and Cbalie Force were safely
ensconced in their rooms. They both knew
more about the knife than they told you.
"Now as to Gary. He was either a very
Intoxicated man or he goes out of his wty at
every step to shield his friend Evans. So
much for Gary."
"I don't know that I need to say anything
more about Evans."
"I do not say Evans committer murder,
yet I do say that with George and Force he
Is withholding important facts which if told
would have cleared up the mystery in this
"As to Gray, no man ever testified more
falsely on the witness stand."
The remark, "He is dead, you have
killed him," which Gray says Bennett
made to Hamilton, Mr. Nye ridiculed as
something at total variance with the
Whence the Knife 1
"Now it Is not for me to say whether that
knife fell from the dying hand of Leonard
Oay or whether some of the states wit
nesses who had the opportunity to place
it there and did place it there. That knife
was there before Hamilton was within 25
feet of the body of Day."
Rooney Not Corroborated.
"Now as to Rooney. He is not corrobor
ated in a single particular. Lederburg, the
other officer was there, why didn't he con
fess to him?"
"When Dr. Murray was asked, 'Did he
(Hamilton) say, "I have killed him," '
What did he say. He said.'No, sir.' "
"Now how slight would Rooney have to
change the driveling language of this de
fendant in his half-conscious condition to
produce an entirely different meaning."
Mr. Nye made a profound impression
by his strictures of the police of all
cities. The average policeman, he said
was always looking for a confession
"Do you tell me that that boy, intox
icated as he was, laid that knife, shut
up, all cunningly by Day's side, and a
few moments later would confess to a
Rooner'a Star Play.
This act of Rooney's may be a star
play to get back on the police force. His
remarks here were brutal and unfeeling,
they drove ladies from the courtroom
and how easily he could have clothed his
vulgarities in refined language.
Dr. Murray was there when Rooney
got there. I call your attention to Roon
ey s testimony who on cross-examination
didn't know when Dr. Murray, didn't
know who was present when Hamilton
made the first confession. On rebuttal
he discovered there were times when
Murray was not within earshot.
"Oh, he's a handy fellow. He will be
useful in future prosecutions."
We don t know to-day who all was in that
room, and we will never know. Mind you I
do not make any charges. -■■.'■■

Even Mr. Atwater may be mistaken, but
the fact, the incident is not explained away.
I believe Neilsen to be an honest man and
that Day carried such a knife.
Coming down to Hotel Clerk Jackson—he
said: Day was in the habit of carrying a
large knife. Take the habits of a boy—his
habit was to carry a large knife. The
Mackintosh woman saw the large knife in
September. They found no knife on Day's
person, except the little toy knife jsrhich ap
peared on his key ring. And this knife, you
must believe was the knife of Leonard Day
or it belonged to the West hotel, and Hamil
ton didn't know of its existence.
Mr. Nye then read from Hamilton's tes

A CASE OF EQUITY
The new State Mutual policy contains
a clause guaranteeing five per cent loans.
The value of such a feature in a life in
surance policy is obvious.
In connection with the Issuance of this
new policy the State Mutual gave an il
lustration of true equity and mutuality,
me company has been making policy
loans for many years, but it did not guar
antee to make them, and they were made
at six per cent. When the new policy
was issued containing the five per cent
guarantee the company promptly reduced
the interest on all existing loans to that

PEACE THIS YEAR
No D. A. R. Vice President General
HILER HORTON LANDS A GOOD JOB
Indian Agency at Sisaeton May Make
Trouble—Gamble's Seat In
Special to The Journal.
Washington, Feb. 19.—The diseatisfac
tion created last year over the selection
of a vice president general of the D. A.
R. from Minnesota will not be repeated
at this year's gathering of the national
organization. There are only a limited
number of vice presidents general, and
the politicians in charge of the distribu
tion of offices make up a slate before the
convention, which by diligent log rolling,
usually goes through. The election of the
officer from Minnesota last year was
done by this coterie of Washington poli
ticians without consulting the representa
tives of the Minnesota chapters. This
year's slate does not include a Minne
sota Daughters, as these offices will go to
other states than those representeol this
It is not known how well the Minne
sota organization will be represented at
this year's convention. Mrs. Stratton,
state regent, will be here. She will stay
with Mr. and Mrs. LeGrand Powers while
in the city. Mrs. Barrows, representa
tive of another chapter, will be the guest
of Senator and Mrs. Nelson. Mrs. Page
Morris will represent the Duluth chapter,
as she did last year, and Mrs. Powers
will be the alternate to the delegate from
a Minneapolis chapter.
Hiler Horton of St. Paul is of the "lucky
dog" class. He came post haste to
Washington recently, intent on securing
an appointment in one of the staff depart
ments of the new army. He failed in this,
as the army reorganization law provides
that these places must be filled from the
present regular establishment. But as
long as he "was here Mr. Horton made up
his mind he would try to "smell out"
something "equally as good," and before
long he got hold of the Spanish commis
sion. This suited him better than being
in the army, and he quickly set to work
to secure the indorsement of the delega
tion. This was not difficult and the ap
pointment was announced on Thursday
night last. Mr. Horton is to be con
gratulated, for his salary will be $5,500
and expenses, which is $600 more per year
than is paid Tarns Bixby as a member of
the Dawes Indian.commission.
Nathan P. Johnson, present Indian agent
at Sisseton, S. D., will meet with con
siderable opposition for a reappointment.
South Dakotans claim that Johnson was
appointed solely upon the recommenda
tion of his father, who had been President
McKinley's right hand man in Ohio poli
tics for many years. He had not a single
South Dakota indorsement for the-place,
and when his name was sent to the senate
it caused cold chills to run up and down
the backs of the •'organization." Since
he has been in office Johnson has had
constant trouble with the trader at the
agency, Ross, and has not had a happy
time of it, taking it all together. It is
said positively that if President McKin
ley reappoints him Senator Kyle will
oppose confirmation and some South Da
kotans say that Gamble, who will then
be senator, will join Kyle in preventing
the senate from indorsing the president's
choice. So far as known no application
for the place has yet been filed, but some
are expected in a short time, as John
son's term expires in April.
Senator Gamble has taken time by'the
forelock and arranged to secure a good
Beat in the Benate after March 4. Fol
lowing the custom in the senate, Mr. Mc-
Bride of Oregon, when it seemed probable
that Chandler of New Hampshire, who
occupied a front seat, would be defeated,
filed with the sergeant-at-arms a claim
upon that seat. Fairbanks of Indiana,
seeing a chance that Mcßride might not
be returned by the legislature of his state,
also filed upon Chandler's seat, subject
to Mcßrlde's claim. Gamble then stepped
in and filed upon Fairbanks' seat, which
is in the rear of the republican side. It
begins to look as though Mcßride will
not be in the senate after March 4. Fair
banks will therefore get Chandler's seat
and Gamble will get Fairbanks'. If the
Oregon legislature returns Mcßride the
deal will fall through, and Gamble will
have to take a seat on the democratic
side, where Depew and Beveridge now
have their seats. The selection of seats
in the senate is largely dealing in political
futures. Mr. Gamble is also trying to
arrange matters so that he can have a
room in the capitol, instead of in the
Maltby, where some of the majority sena
tors are now quartered, owing to lack of
sufficient quarters in the capitol.
There is a suspicion of rivalry between
Senator Kyle and Senator-elect Gamble
over the proposition to set up the two Da
kotas into revenue collection districts by
themselves, divorcing them from the Ne
braska district, of which they for years
have been a part. Senator-elect Gamble
says that the credit for originating the
idea belongs to him, and that he evolved
it during the first session of the Fifty
sixth congress, more than a year ago, but
wds prevented from pressing it because of
the fact that his campaign for the senate
came on, compelling him to postpone
every other matter then on hand. Senator
Kyle goes Mr. Gamble one better by say
ing that he has had the matter under con
sideration for more than two years. The
proposition will be referred to the secre
tary of the treasury, before whom both
Kyle and Gamble will go in its interest.
This little tilt is the direct outgrowth
of Senator Kyle's determination to get
back into the republican party before the
next senatorial campaign comes on in
South Dakota, two years hence. He is
leaving no stone unturned along this line,
and undoubtedly proposes to come up for
return to the seflate as a republican. As
to some extent standing in the way of his
plans, however, it is said that Mr. Gam
ble and the present powers that be in the
South Dakota republican party, do not
quite relish Mr. Kyle's program, and will
be expected energetically to oppose it.
The report in Minnesota, originating in
Washington, that the state delegation has
been to the White House to talk over mat
ters of general federal patronage with the
president, on account of the recent ap
pointment of Mr. Willard as one of the
Philippine supreme judges, is not reliable.
On the day in question, about Wednesday
of last week, Senators Nelson and Clapp,
and Representative Stevens were at the
White House to discuss army appoint
ments, but the question of general federal
patronage was not mentioned in any way,
it is said, nor was it in the minds of the

office table, carpets, rugs, easy hcalrs, a
couch chiffonniers and bound volumes of
Harpers and Century magazines.

not accounted for was taken by Dr. Mead,
he said that was the inference when he
