HENNEPIN IS UNDIVIDED
Ramsey Forces a Change to Swell
the Republican Margin.
CAUSES SOME LINE-SHIFTING
In the Main, However, the Plan Is
That Published First in
•'The Journal" Feb. -.
The question of how to cut Minnesota
up into nine congressional districts is now
up to the joint committee on reapportion
In line -with the prediction in yester
day's Journal, the subcommittee fin
ished its work and reported at 4 o'clock
this afternoon to a meeting of the full
The scheme of reapportionment which
the members of the subcommittee have
■worked out is reproduced in the accom
panying map. There are but three
changes from the original scheme pub
lished in The Journal on Feb. 2.
They were the result of a concession de
manded by Ramsey county, which rose in
rebellion at the proposition to leave it
with only Washington county to contrib
ute republican majorities. The St. Paul
men, as usua.l, came to the front and
compelled the committee to leave Chi
sago with Its banner republican majority,
in the fourth district. To make this up
in part to the eighth district, Mille Lacs
is taken from the sixth, -which is com
pensated by the addition of Meeker, taken
from the new seventh.
Hrnnepin Remains Vndivided.
Hennepin is not divided. As usual, Ram
sey got what it -wanted and Hennepin
didn't. The St. Paul men threatened to
smash the committeee's report if their de
mand was not complied with. The moral
is obvious. With Ramsey in accord with
the scheme, its chances for going through
are much better.
There is a greater inequality in popula
tion than ever, the new eighth district
being left with only 157,543 people.
Who the Vine Will Be.
The new plan will mak§ Minnesota's
representation in congress as follows:
Second district —McCleary.
Fourth district —Stevens.
r*lfth district— Fletcher.
Sixth dtstrict —Chances favoring Sena
tors J. D. Jones, Buckmau or Brown, or
Auditor R. G. Dunn.
Ninth district —Ezra Valentine, Repre
sentative Albert Berg, Senators J. 11.
Smith, Grindeland or Myran.
Great Inequality in Population.

a battle will ensue when the Law and
Order League commences its trip over
town to rid the town of saloon fixtures
that have not been removed in compli

week ago. The order was to clear out
by noon to-day, and so far they have

Deputy marshals to the number of 100

sulted with the city council relative to
declaring the town under martial law,

Everett S. Richards, who made an attempt
upou the life of his wife on the third floor of

arraigned in the police court this morniug

bound over to the grand jury. Judge Holt
refused to allow the prisoner bail.
Mrs. Richards still remains in a critical

dangerous one. It is feared that the bullet
may have become lodged near the heart. The

From: The Journal Bureau, Room AS, Post .
Building, Washington. ' .....;-■■ :,
Washington, Feb. 20. — The agree
ment by the senate and■ the house
;to the conference report on the In
dian appropriation bill yesterday,, puts
absolutely into the hands of the secre
tary of the interior the disposal of Chip
pewa pine land. - The amendment con-;
tamed in the conference report porvides
that "the secretary of the interior.is au
thorized . to sell and dispose of the tim
ber on said reservation (the: Chippewa)
at such ' prices and under such regula
tions as he may . prescribe, the proceeds
thereof to •; be disposed of under the pro
visions of the existing law."
The: adoption of the c conference . report
has the effect of fixing the legislation
beyond amendment,. except by means of a
separate bill, and it effectually bars the
passage of the Eddy bill, besides making
it unnecessary, as it accomplishes the
purpose of that bill. It will permit the
secretary of the interior., to carry into
effect ' the recommendations of Captain
Mlrcer and Indian. Commissioner Jones
for cutting timber and its sale according
to i bank scale and its manufacture into
lumber on the reservation. \ '....
The conference report on the Indian bill
was adopted to-day by the bouse, but went
i over in the senate at Chairman Thurston's
Notwithstanding the lauguage of law
which appears to give the secretary of the
interior full authority to dispose of all
timber on ceded and unceded reserva
tions, there is a decided difference of
opinion among members of congress as to
the effect of amendments. Senator Nel
son and Representative Eddy both say
that it refers only to unceded lands of the
White Earth and Red Lake reservations,
and that the ceded lands are not covered.
"It is not an amendment to the so
called Nelson law," said Senator Nelson;
"therefore I will not oppose the adoption
of a report by the senate."
At the interior department and at the
Indian office it is said that the language
of the amendment clearly covers all In
dian lands in Minnesota, whether ceded
If there is any question raised, as now
seems certain, the attorney general will
be asked to interpret the act. This will"
be done as soon as the bill is signed by
President McKinley still has on his desk
the opinion of the circuit court of ap
peals at Snn Francisco in the Alex Mc-
Kenzie case. It is his usual plan to take
up all matters of this kind in the even
ing after the crush of visitors for the
day is over, and he would have taken up
the McKenzie matter last night but for
the fact that he had a big official recep
tion on hand. Brbbably he will have no
time to consider the matter to-day, but
he may take up the decision and read it
carefully to-night. After he has done this
he will confer with Attorney General
Griggs, and then it will be known wheth
er Judge Noyes will be summarily dis
missed, whether he will be cited for a
public investigation next summer, or
whether the president will indorse the
opinion of the attorney general that
nothing can be done until formal and di
rect charges in writing have been filed.
The next few days will decide the mat
ter. That this is the crucial stage of
the Noyes proceedings is everywhere con
reded. The anti-Xoyes forces are un
usually active, knowing that this is. per
haps, their only chance. Opinion there
is pretty well divided as to whether the
president will not interfere, or direct
proceedings against Judge Noyeg.
The bill for the appointment of addi
tional United States judges in Minnesota
and Nebraska which passed the senate j
yesterday, will probably not become a law
at this session. One reason is that pres
sure of business in the house will not
psrmit it. Another and more potent rea
son is iJxat the Minnesota house members
«ill not urge its consideration until they
know whether they are to be eopaulted in

on this point has been reached with the
There are various candidates for the

tor Davis with District Attorney R. G.
Evans in mind. His friends will be ex
pected to urge him for appointment if
an agreement is reached in the delega

Heatwole, are for Representative Morris,

degree and recommended to the mer&y of
The punishment is from five to twenty
years in the state prison. Hamilton's at
torneys at once gave notice of a motion
for a new trial.
Judge Brooks will probably impose
sentence to-morrow morning. A sentence
approximating a minimum term of im
prisonment is looked for. Tb« prevailing
opinion is that it will not exceed eight
The jury returned £ verdict at just 9:45.
It was a quiet proceeding and, save for
the solemnity of the occasion, lacked the
dramatic features which have occasional
ly marked the trial.
Agreement About Reached Last
The jury had evidently all but agreed
upon a verdict before going to bed last
night. It only remained for them to take
the final ballot this morning. They de
cided to pass finally on the case on full
stomachs, for it was not long after their
return from breakfast that there came a
subdued knock at the door, behind which
they had been deliberating for over forty
hours. A deputy took the word to the
sheriff that the jury had made up its mind
and was ready to report. ,The deputy
must have read in their long drawn faces
what the verdict would be. His own face
reflected their dark look as he made his
way to the sheriffs office.
The fact that the jury had finally come
to an agreement was covertly passed
about among the lawyers interested in
the t case, the newspaper men and the
friends of Day and Hamilton, who had
been lingering in the corridors from an
Crowd -Stayed Away.
The big crowd which had come early
and stayed late yesterday was not on
hand .this morning. There were perhaps
a hundred people in the third floor cor
ridors. Most of them expected that the
verdict would be returned in the main
courtroom, and they were thrown off their
guard when the jury suddenly filed from
its room and without any warning was
conducted to Judge Brooks' court on the
The jury notified the sheriff that it was
of one mind at 9:15. Hamilton was im
mediately brought down quietly from the
jail by Deputy DeLalttre, arriving in the
room where he was to hear of his con
viction, some minutes before the jury's
Hamilton Still Hoped.
He had enjoyed a good night's rest and
was still buoyed up by the belief that an
acquittal or a disagreement was at hand.
Self-possessed as he was. the painful
wait told on him, and when the crucial
time came his natural nervousness be
came more pronounced than at any time
during the trial.
Attorneys Xye and McMillan sat by his
sfde, and he was whispering earnestly to
them at the dread moment. There were
perhaps forty people in the room at the
Verdict Cant a Shadow Before.
A conviction seemed to be in the very
atmosphere of the room. That impression
was intensified when a deputy at the door
gave a nod of hie head and the twelve men
marched gravely into the room. A score
of men following at the jury's heels clam
ored for admission, but were kept outside.
' There was a moment of breathless sus
pense as the jurors took their seats. Then
Clerk Kobler asked, in a voice which
The Clerk* Formal UncKtioa.
"Gentlemen of the jury, have you agreed
upon a verdict?" /
"We have," said Foreman Wetherby in
a firm tone, as he handed the document
to the clerk.
Judge Brooks' eyes rested oa the paper
for but a moment. He comprehended it«:
purport at a glance.
"Gentlemen, you will listen to the read
ing of the verdict," continued the clerk la
o • o
: We, the jury, find the defend- :
. : ant, Frank H. Hamilton, guilty :
: of manslaughter in the first de- :
: gree, and recommend him to the :
: mercy of the court. :
Judge Brooks briefly addressed the jury,
complimenting them on their conduct
during the trial, and dismissed them.
Hamilton's Desparing Look.
Beyond a sad, despairing look, Hamil
ton betrayed no emotion other than to
shake his head in mute protest against
the verdict. He sat as one dazed. Ho
seemed almost in a trance when his at
torneys whispered words of comfort to
No word escaped him. He had no
statement to make, and upon motion of
Al J. Smith, assistant county attorney,

to await sentence.

Johnson of Colorado Springs, who was hia
nurse in Colorado and who had been with
him when he was summoned to the court*
room, was alone admitted to his cell. He
asked the jailer to say to his friends that
he cared to see no one for the time being,.
Hamilton Breaks the Silence.
Hamilton came face to face with his ,
good friend. Captain Alexander, as ha
entered the office of the jail. With a
gesture of despair he said:
"Captain, I have been convicted, but I
did not deserve it; my God, I did not

that he had been convicted because a

want to have it known that they were
Arguments on the motion for a new trial
will probably be made to-morrow morning
or immediately after sentence has bees
imposed. Judge Brooks said that tie would
not pronounce sentence to-day.
The Jnry Remains Silent.
"Mum" was the word with the jury aft
to the manner in whfch it had finally
come to a conclusion. Different members
of the Jury were asked how the twelve
men had stood on the different ballots,
taken, but they refused to make any
statements. Instead, they referred all
interviewers to Harry V. Wetherfcy,
clerk in the Northwestern National bank,
foreman. Mr. Wetherby shook his head.
