BPhey're So Simple That One Man Can
The .health department has just laid in a
stock of fifty new style house fumigators, and
they will be put in use at once. The new
fumigator is an extremely simple, inexpensive
apparatus, and it will be a great labor saver
to the department, as one man can operate
half a dozen at a time Instead of one, as
heretofore. The new fumigator consists pri
marily of an alcohol lamp about the size and
shape of a harvester oil can. This is used
to heat a small tin can placed on a zinc tri
pod. The formaldehyde, instead of being in
liquid form as heretofore, is contained in a
■mall pastille. This is placed in the can and
covered with a fine sieve, and it dissolves into
gas slowly under the action of'the heat. The
Inspector will leave one of the machines in
operation at & house and then go on to a
number of others, finally returning over the
route to pick -up the fumigators after they
have done their work. Under the new sys
tem one man can do four or five times as
much work as at present. The new fumiga
tor Is in large part the invention of Harry

Did Not Talk With President
Roosevelt Regarding the
Nobody Presuming to Advise
the President Unless In
vited to Do So.
From The Journal Btrreau, Boon* AS,'Post
Washington, Nov. 28.Thomas Lowry is
in New York, so there is no chance to see
him here regarding his recent talk with
President Roosevelt. It is well known, :
however that he and Clinton Morrison
called merely to pay their respects. They
met the president in the public reception
room, which was filled with people, and
their stay did not last more than two
minutes. I am told that the railway
merger was not discussed, neither Mr.
Lowry nor the president mentioning it.
While here Mr. Lowry did talk In a
general way to his friends regarding the
merger, and the impression has been left
that he is taking no active interest in it.
His road, the Soo, is in a position to profit
as the result of any calamity which may
come to the Great Northern or Northern
Pacific, besides, his personal relations
with James J. Hill are still very un

Minnesota a week ago and Wall street
became interested in his "movements, the
New York "yellows'* have been trying
to connect every prominent man who has
visited the White House, especially if he
was from the northwest, with the merger,
either for or against it. They have gone
so far as to give the names of men who
they allege have visited Roosevelt and
urged him to do this or the other thing
in his message, so far as the merger is
concerned. These stories are absolutely
It is said on high authority that none
of these men has been so bold as to ad
vise the president what to do in his mes

be a perilous undertaking, as any one ac
quainted with Roosevelt well knows.
These men, some of whom were here by
appointment, talked with the president
regarding the trusts, tariff, reciprocity
and other hackneyed questions, but that is
all. Advice is usually given a president
only after he has asked for it. Few are
close enough to this high office to volun
teer advice. The president has talked
about the merger with Attorney General
Knox, -who, it is said, is looking it up,
preparatory to taking action, should there
be grounds for it; but he has not discussed
it with the cabinet or with callers, so far
as can be ascertained. '

VAN SANT'S LETTER
The Text of His Epistle to Other
The following is a copy of the letter
which Governor Van Sant sent to the
governors of the western states:
It Is plainly evident that the controlling in
terests of the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific railroads are preparing to consolidate
these two roads in open violation of the laws
of the states through which they pass. I
have deemed it of sufficient importance to the
people of Minnesota to take steps to prevent
the merging of these two roads in Minnesota.
The laws of your state are similar to those
of Minnesota regarding the consolidation of
competing or parallel lines, and presuming
that you will take similar action to . prevent
the contemplated combination, I recommend
that we meet at some point to be agreed upon
for conference in regard to the method of
procedure to be followed in each state. Clear
ly the laws of Minnesota are being violated,
and I have grave fears that unless united ac- '
tion is taken at once that the roads named
may pass from the control of the state. I

An opium joint was raided last night at 126

NEW NAMES FOR OLD~CIGARS
Why the Five and Ten Cent Brands
New York Evening Post.
The number of new cigars the advertise
ments of which appear annually on bill
boards and fences is a source of wonder
even to a man who smokes. Every month
there is a crop of new names for the
various kinds of the best 5 and 10-cent
cigars in the world. As soon as the eye
grows used to the large heads and land
scapes which are the chosen emblems of
Borne new variety that particular decora
tion begins to disappear and some new
and equally obtrusive one takes its place.
The new name is, of course, so much
easier to find than the new cigar that it
follows, according to the tobacco men,
that the same cigar reappears year after
year under a different name. What the
5-cent smoker calls for one year as a dis
tinguished statesman, he fails to recognize
the next as the pride of the same distant
island or title of the latest novel. The
name is practically the most important
part of a new cigar, as it is its chief in
strument of advertisement, and, accord
ingly, there is a continual competition
to secure new names. It is not necessary
to popularize these names in every case,
but they are registered by publication in
one of the tobacco trade journals, such as
the Tobacco Leaf. Trade-Mark Record,
or Tobacco Journal. If, however, a name
is registered, and yet not used for any
particular kind of cigar, it may be adopt
ed by some other dealer. Exactly what
determines the question of whether a
name has been used or not is one which
the courts have not yet definitely decided.
There are probably between three and
four thousand names for cigars, cigarettes,
cheroots and tobacco registered, and about
two-thirds of these are used. Any name
may be registered, although the title to
the use of an individual's name is only
really strong when the person in question
has given his consent. The more ex
pensive grades of cigars vary much less
in their names and frequently run with
out a change for fifteen and twenty years.
These last kinds have usually two names,
the second denoting the shape, and oc
casionally, even, a third to show the
color. There are about fifteen recog
nized sizes which have,names.- and three
colors, but these finer distinctions are not
apnlled to the cheaper graces.
One proof that snuff-taking has not en
tirely died out in this country lies in the
fact that fifteen new names for new kinds
of snuff/ were registered last year, and
have all been since used. i

EACH MAN GOT THREE .
A Big:. Load of Venison From Moose
An express.wagon piled high with deer, the
heads, legs and antlers protruding at pictur
esque angles from the heap, was an attraction
on Nicollet avenue this morning. The load
represented the total bag of five hunters who
had just returned from the Moose river coun
try north of Aitkin. There were fifteen deer
in the bunch, each man having succeeded in
killing three, the limit allowed by law. The
members of the party, who made the woods
ring with their rifles for two weeks, were N.
P. Nelson of Nelson & Mattson, John Scheid,
Frank Kellar, E. W. Hall and A. Streiber.
The hunters report that the woods are full
of deer and that they could have killed many
more had the law allowed. • Hunting was
made difficult by a foot and a half of crusted
snow, not firm enough to sustain a j man's
weight. This made walking fatiguing, and
the accompanying noise gave the deer fair
warning of the hunter's approach.
The party got on the trail of a moose and
followed It for a day, when they were forced
to give up the chase, owing to the distance to
camp. '<'.■'; ■ .v'V*.'""':''" •"*' "*• >

plan for the robbery was concocted here
in Great Falls and that he has $12,500 of
the stolen money cached. He is now ill,
and physicians say he is suffering from
nervous prostration and is worrying over
something. He was kept under a strong
guard last night in the Neihart hotel, and
to-morrow morning will be brought to
Corresponds to Hanks.
The weight, complexion and general ap
pearance of Hanks correspond to Collins
so well as to make the authorities believe
they have the right man, even had he not
said anything to convict himself. In one
way his capture is due to the taking of
Longbaugh at St. Louis a month ago.
Prior to the arrest of Longbaugh, Collins
had been at work in the Neihart concen
trator. The day the news of his arrest
was made public in Neihart, Collins be
gan to be nervous. His condition was no
ticed by several of his companions, and
they asked, him if he was feeling ill. He
replied he was not, and for two days more
kept at work. At. the end of two days
he was in such a condition that he was
forced to quit work.
He went to the shack he was occupying
and a physician had to be called. He at
once noted that the man was suffering
from nervous prostration, and that he had
something weighing on his mind. It was
decided to give him a hypodermic injec
tion to quiet his nerves, and this was
done. ; While he was in delirum he began

COURT WROUGHT UP
Judge Dickinson Sharply Criticizes
Actions of the Police.
MYRTLE JOHNSON IS ACQUITTED
Captain Krumwiede Arrested Her
While She Was With Her Hub-
band on the Street.
Lack of discretion that almost becomes
•wantonness is the characteristic feature
of the conduct of the present police de
partment of the city, according to the
expressed opinion of Judge Dickinson, of
the police court, before whom all crimi
nal cases are brought. The magistrate
made this comment this morning in giving
his finding of not guilty in the case of
Mrs. Myrtle Johnson, charged; with
drunkenness: The defendant was arrested
by Captain Krumwieae Monday night as
she and her husband were about to take a
car for home at First avenue S and Third
street. The testimony, even of the state's
witnesses. Judge. Dickinson said, did not
prove her guilty, notwithstanding the
fact that three policemen swore that she
staggered and could not walk. Several
citizens who saw the arrest testified that
they did not think Mrs. Johnson under the
influence of liquor. The matron of the
central police station, in whose charge
Mrs. Johnson was left, testified that she
expressed great surprise when Captain
Krumwiede informed her that the prison
er was charged with being drunk, and the
matron told the officer at the time that
she could not go on the stand and swear
that the prisoner was intoxicated.
With Mrs. Johnson were arrested her
husband, two other men and two other
women. They were booked at the central
police station, but Mrs. Johnson was the
ouly one against whom a complaint was
sworn out. She was arraigned yesterday,
pleaded not guilty and her trial set for
this morning. Many witnesses were ex
amined, including the officers who were
near when the people were taken into cus
tody, the proprietor ef a saloon they had
visited and the police matron. The testi
mony of the several witnesses was in
some cases directly contradictory, but the
preponderance 01 evidence, in the mind of
the court, was in favor of the defendant.
So conclusive was the proof of her inno
cence in his mind that he sternly rebuked
Meaning of Recent Orders.
The revelation by Captain Krumwiede
of the, real meaning of the recent orders
of the superintendant of police to arrest

against other members of the party
than Mrs. Johnson at yesterday's session,
caused Judge Dickinson to question Cap

to all women, respectable women, or is

ing for the construction of a yacht of their

tion of some club in issuing a challenge.
"Longbaugh, Longtbaugh, where did I ;
meet you? Oh, yes, I know," he said.
Then for the first time it was remem- !
bered the interest he had shown in the ar
rest of Longbaugh. He would ask for the
papers while he was lying in 'bed. When
these were given to him he would scan
them over as though looking for some
thing in particular. He improved after
several days, and has been able to be out
of his shack, hut seems to be wasting
away under a strain.
After a few days Collins, who had here- '
tofore worn a smooth face, began to grow
a small mustache. This came out sandy.
Just like Hanks' mustache when he wears
one. After this Deputy Le&better con
cluded to call to his assistance another j
man In whom he had confidence. He;
brought this man and Collins together j
without introducing them himself, and
since that time they have been together
a great portion of the time.
Story Wrested From Him.
It was during this companionship that
Collins told his story. According to what
he confided to this supposed friend, he
came to Great Falls the latter part of
June. He had no business here then, he
says, but simply came to look about the
city for a few days.
The day after his arrival he says he was
in the Mint saloon, where he was intro
duced to Harvey Logan alias "Kid" Curry
and Harry Longbaugh. He cannot re
member the name of the man who intro
duced him, but says the fellow seemed to
know them well. After the introduction
he says they stood about the saloon for
some time and then went upstairs into the
second story, where they sat down and
talked over matters. They had several
drinks up there, and the two men quizzed
him about his habits. After awhile they
asked him if he would be willing to take
a hand in something that would get him
a little money—probably make him
Plot All Fixed Up.
At first Collins says he did not under
stand the men or what they meant, but as
sured them that he was in for anything
there was money in. Then he says they
took him in their confidence and the
robbery was planned. He says Curry and
Longbaugh told him they had positive in
formation that there would be a large
amount of money on a train arriving at
Malta on July 3, and they then asked him
to go in with them and get his share of
the loot. He says he consented and from
that time until after the robbery and di
vision of the booty they were never sepa
evening. Returning home they stopped at
Third street and First avenue S and pur
chased chicken sandwiches from a lunch
wagon. It not being time for their car,
they stepped into a saloon near the cor
ner and had two.glasses. of beer, one of
which Mrs. Johnson barely placed to her
lips. They walked out of the saloon with
two other women and two men, strangers
to them. Captain Krumwiede, who hap
pened by at that time, says his attention
was directed to them by their staggering
and boisterous and loud conduct. He ar
rested them, accosting first Mrs. John
son, who, he said, was staggering so that
she fell to the sidewalk. Mr. Johnson
told the officer that she was all right and
that they were going home, and when the
captain tried to hold her she clung to her
husband, who then struck the officer.
Krumwiede called for help and Patrolmen
Hamilton and Flood responded. Together
they succeeded in arresting the crowd
after a hard fight with the men.
At the station Mrs. Johnson was turned
over to Mrs. Shaeffer, the police matron.
Later she asked Captain Krumwiede what
the charge was. He replied "drunk."
At this Mrs. Schaeffer expressed great
surprise. "I can never go on the wit
ness stand and swear that this woman is
intoxicated," she told the offiecr. But
the charge stood, and the police fought
hard to substantiate it in court, but un
After the testimony was all "in, Judge
Dickinson turned in his chair and said:
"Nobody in this party was arrested for
drunkenness except this defendant." City
Prosecutor Waite interrupted his honor
afcid started to explain that the others
were to be arraigned to-day; that there
had been a little misunderstanding and
consequent delay. He said they were
now charged with drunkenness.
"That must have been an afterthought,"
said the judge. "I do not think from the
testimony of Captain Krumwiede and the
other officers that the whole party were
drunk. Krumwiede said on the stand that
he had orders to arrest women who were
out after a certain hour, and that was
what he did in this case; further, he said
he would do it again. It Is' to be re
gretted that it Is necessary to send so
many cases out of this oourt unproved.
In this case the testimony shows that the
defendant had but two glasses of beer,
and that she did not drink a part of the
second. She was with her husband, and
had started for a street car when arrest
ed. It seems to me to be lack of discre
tion that almost becomes wantonness.

down into Virginia within a month to at
tend a trial in his native county. It was
essential to prove that bitter enmity had
existed between defendant and plaintiff—
if plaintiff is the proper term to apply to
the gentleman who had had a generous
handful of blrdshot distributed into his
person. A witness, who was quite blind,
testified in detail as to a quarrel between
"Then Lew grabbed up a chair and
broke it over Jim's head," he said.
"How do you know that?" asked the
lawyer who was conducting the cross-ex
"I was an eyewitness ,to it," remarked
the blind man.
"An eyewitness?" repeated the lawyer,
"Yes," said the blind man. "I was. A
piece of the leg hit me in the right eye.
I certainly was an eyewitness."
Neither Sir Thomas Llpton nor George
is. Watson, the designer, has any knowl
edge of the matter. Sir Thomas con
siders it useless for any one to attempt
to challenge for 1902 owing to the im
possibility of properly tuning up a boat,
but he says the Shamrocks are at the dis
posal of any one as trial boats who may
want to try for the cup. .

tor, have completed their formal inspec
tion of Minneapolis factories and other

The report shows that 1,208 establish
ments were inspected, employing 30,364
men, 5,908 women, 258 boys and 46 girls
under 16 years of age, a total of 36,576
persons. The percentage of child labor is
.83 of 1 per cent, exactly the same pro
portion as exists in St. Paul, and much
less than in former years.
There were 1,063 manufacturing estab
lishments which employed 30,357 persons, i
or 25,909 men, 148 boys under 16 years of

4,455 men, 110 boys under 16 years of age,
1,628 women, and 26 girls less than 16
years old, or a total of 6,219 persons.

The per cent of Sunday workers for
manufacturing establishments is 6.79 the

The relation of child labor to adult
labor in manufacturing industries is 0.55
per cent and for nonmanufacturing estab
lishments 2.19 per cent.

WIVES CANT TESTIFY
Judge Elliott's Ruling Affects Many
Wives may not testify against their hus
bands, even in cases of abandonment and
neglect, says Judge Elliott, and the new
law which was intended to reach husbands
who were shirking their family responsi
bilities becomes practically Inoperative.
The wife will not be permitted to testify
regarding the marriage nor the desertion.
If the woman can produce the official mar
riage records and can secure witnesses
who know enough of her family affairs to
testify as to the abandonment, a convic
tion can be obtained, but otherwise the
law cannot be enforced.
In the case aginst Frank Carroll yes
terday afternoon the prisoner's attorney
objected, under the old common law rule,
to Mrs. Carroll givng any evidence against
her husband. The court sustained the ob
jection on the ground that the case was
not one of those specified by statute in
which wives are permitted to. testify.,
QUEER GERMAN FIRE REGULATIONS.
Berlin Correspondence og The Chicago
Ex-Senator Mitchell, of Wisconsin, had
a funny experience in an apartment where
he was spending last winter. Something
caught fire in b,is rooms early in the morn
ing, and the servants rushed out and gave
the alarm. In the meantime the senator
.was awakened, and, organizing a shirttaii
fire brigade of the members of his family,
he extinguished the flames with bowls and
pitchers and water from the bathroom.
When the firemen arrived the family was
sitting around calmly talking it over, but
the police were determined to march them
all off to jail for Interfering with the
fire department. After the alarm was
given they should have locked their doors
and left the house, placing the entire re
sponsibility upon the fire department. It
was unlawful for them to do anything
toward putting it out.
Another American, Professor Boice, had
a similar experience. When a fire caught
in his apartment he rushed across the
street and let off an alarm from a box
he had always noticed there, but had nev
er had occasion to use before. Now, it so
happens that the street upon which Mr.
Boice lived is the boundary line between
the city of Berlin and the town of Char
lottenburg, one of its suburbs, and the
fire department of that city responded.
When they arrived they found that the fire
was in the city of Berlin, and therefore
they would not touch it. The foreman
hurried to the nearest box on the Berlin
side and turned in an alarm, and then or
dered the Charlottenburg firemen back to
the engine house. Within a few minutes
the Berlin department came rushing up
and put out the fire.
In the meantime Mr. Boice had been ar
rested for giving a false alarm in Charlot
tenburg, a misdemeanor which is punish
able by a heavy penalty. It would not
have been a false alarm, of course, If It
had been given on the Berlin side of the
street, but as there was no fire in Char
lottenburg it was a crime to give an alarm
in that city. Mr. Boice was . not aware
that his street was a boundary line, but
the German law does not recognize ig
norance as an excuse for the violation of
| city regulations.
