WANTED FIVE TIMES
A Kansas Officer Comes to Take
HE'S IN JAIL AT WORTHINGTON
Kacaped From Kanaaa and Drove to
Minnesota With HU Sweet-
Frank Stout of Hayes City, Kan., a
pleasant looking man with a sandy mous
•nche and a cool blue eye, is in Minnesota
an a dangerous mission. He came to the
state capital this morning with five
requisitions for Charles Kurfess, one of
the terrors of western Kansas.
Kurfess is in jail at Worthington. He
was arrested there by a deputy sheriff
on a description, and put up a desperate
fight. He has escaped from Jail twice
in Kansas, aud nearly got away at
Worthington. He comes of a family of
desperadoes. One is serving twenty-one
years' for a murderous assault, and the
other is said; to have been hanged in the
southwest for horse stealing. Kurfess
drove to Minnesota with a stolen horse
and buggy. aLcompaniced by his sweet
heart. Maggie Blkk. Maggie is a pretty
girl oi iy. infatuated with Kurfess, and
has been his companion for two or three
years. Stout has a warrant for her on a
charge of perjury, and she says she will
go back without a requisition. Stout will
take them both alone.
The district judge who will try Kurfess
insists on a separate requisition for each
offense on which he is tried, and Stout
came loaded with five, one for horse
stealing, three for burglary and one for
vliooting with intent to kill.
Attorney General Douglas found the
complaint defective in the horse stealing
case, but on his advice Governor Van
Bant honored the other four. Stout, leaves
for Worthington to-uight to get his man.
He instructed the sheriff there to keep a
man on watch day and night, not leaving
Kurfess a minute.

Miss Josephine Thill's first engagement

Since then she has appeared in many
plays and has always acquitted herself
creditably. rPetty as a girl, Miss Thill

TAFT VERSUS CHAFFEE
DISAGREEMENT ON PHILIPPINES
Farmer of the Tariff Bill May Be
Delayed and the Bill Ma
Jfew Xork Sun Special Service
Washington, Dec. 26.—The report from
Manila that Governor Taft and General
Chaffee do not agre as to the extent of
the pacification in the Philippines may
have a tendency to delay the passage of
the Philippine tariff bill until after the
arrival of Governor Taft, that he may pre
sent the situation as he sees it to the
president and' congress. The house
passed the bill without knowing the
recommendations of the Taft commission,
though the ways and means committee
had copies of the commission's report.
There has been a disposition In the war
department to rely more upon the re
ports of General Chaffee than upon those
of the civil governor, because Chaffee is
an old and experienced military officer, in
whom other military men in the depart
ment have confidence. The army officers
naturally have more confidence in ofie of
their members than in a civilian, but con
gress, made up of civilians, may reverse
this order, and the men in congress will
be more -guided by Taft than by Chaffee.
Chaffee is an old Indian fighter and. he is
more suspicious of the Filipinos than
either General Otis or General Mac-
Arthur. Chaffee's reports have been more
discouraging than were the, reports of
Otis and Mac Arthur. 4 He regards the
Filipinos as treacherous by nature and
education and experience with the Span
iard and in his reports to the war de
partment he has given more encourage
ment to those who opposed the cession of
the Philippines than those who believed
the islands could be governed as terri
tory of the United States. It is perhaps
unfortunate that Taft and. Chaffee should
disagree on this question, but it is here
regarded .as perfectly natural that they
should see the situation in different ways.
One is a civilian with large experience in
questions of civil administration and the
other is a soldider with no experience in
■ civil administration. •
« Governor Taft is a man' of such excel
lent judgment regarding civil law and the
administration of it that his views will
be more readily accepted by congress than
those of Chaffee; and may result in the bill

SHEPARD FOR GOVERNOR
Defeated Candidate for Mayor oil
Friendly Terms With Dave Hill.
Jfetv Torto Sun Special S»reio»
New York, Dec. 26.—The brawls in
Tammany and the bitter sentiments ut
tered by the McL.augb.lin democrats are
all for one purpose—to straighten thingc
out, for the gubernatorial campaign next
year. It was told by eminent democrats
to-day that Edward M. Shepard, defeated
candidate for mayor, will certainly be
nominated for governor. All the work
now going on, it was added, is to that end.
It. was furthermore made known that
Former Governor David B. Hill and Mr.
Shepard are now personally friendly, and
this was a striking bit of news in view of
the relentless opposition of Mr. Shepard
to Mr. Hill for many years.
The democratic schemes for harmony
are deep laid. The only kicker in the
bunch is Bird S. Coler of Brooklyn, but
according to present plans, he will be
dripped out of an eleventh-story window
(no soft mattress to receive him, either),
on the ground that he could not make a
passable candidate for governor, inasmuch
as his speeches are considered amateur,
even to silliness, whereas Shepard is sup
posed to be a master hand at speeches.

D. C. House, a Minnesota Veteran,
Diet* at Kansas City.
Kansas City, Dec. 26.—Dewitt Clinton
House is dead at his home in this city,
aged 74 years. He was one of the oldest
and best known traveling men in the
L'nited States. He was born in Vermont,
and fifty years ago established at Peoria
the first, steam bakery and cracker factory
in Illinois. When the war of the rebel
lion broke out Mr. House went to Minne

Minnesota volunteers. Shortly after his
enlistment his regiment was sent to sub
due the Sioux Indians, under Chief Little
Crow, who had attacked the settlers in
western Minnesota, and killed many peo
ple in the massacre of New Ulm.
While burying the dead settlers, Mr.
House and about forty other soldiers were
corralled by a band of Indians at Birch
Coolie. After a heroic defense of four
days, during which time most of the lit
tle band were either killed or wounded,
the survivors were rescued by the other
troops. At the battle Mr. House received
a severe wound in the left leg.
NO HOPE FOR MACLAY

Washington, eDc. 26.—The civil service
commission to-day notified Edward S.
Maclay, the historian recently employed
in the Brooklyn navy yard, that his re
moval from his position at that point was
not in violation of the civil service act.
This notification is contained in a letter

PRESENTED THEIR CLAIMS
Creditors of T. M. Roberts—F. M.
Shaw Probable Trustee.
The first meeting of the criditors of T.
M. Roberts in the bankruptcy court was
held this morning. About fifty were pres
ent. The presentation of claims was tak
en up at once, and many were allowed
by Referee Merriman. The first was that
if William Duff of Hampton, Minn., for
a $414.79 commission on the sale of a car
load of wheat and a car of baled hay. The
election of c trustee will take place when
it. Is determined by the allowance of
claims who can vote.
An objection was filed to all claims
filed by foreign companies on the ground
that they had not complied with the law
and were not entitled to do business in
the state. The motion has not been acted
upon. The sessions are being held in the
large courtroom on the First avenue side
of the federal building.
The general sentiment of the creditors
seems to be in favor of the election of
Frank M. Shaw as trustee. The law pro
vides for the election of one or three
trustees. As Mr. Way will be unable to
serve owing to the fact that he has a
large business of his own, it Is probable
that the choice will fall upon a single
trustee in the person of Mr. Shaw.

C ungreksman McCleary la Sounding
Banker* In View of a Pro
posed ChuiiKra In Lawn.
From The Journal Bureau, Room MS, P»tt
Building, Washington. .- - , , 5
' Washington, . Dec. 26.—Reresentatlva
MoCleary has inaugurated an inquiry to
ascertain opinion in well-informed cir
cles as to the advisability of an amend
ment to the national bank law authorizing
small banks j to advance loans on real
estate. Question of permitting small
banks to make loans on real estate have
been called to his attention several times
during the past few years and lately he
has received several letters on the sub
ject from small bankers in Minnesota and
other northwestern states. Before offer
ing an amendment to the law carrying
the idea into effect, Mr. McCleary decided
to ascertain the judgment of those" who
are qualified to express an opinion on the
subject. Accordingly he has prepared a
circular letter, about 600 copies of which
were sent out Tuesday to persons in every
state and territory In the union. Mr. Mc-
Cleary asks whether It is the judgment
of those addressed that it would be good
public policy to permit small banks •to
loan a portion of their resources on real
estate security. He also desires to learn,
if such an amendment is approved, where
the line shall be drawn in authorizing
banks to make such loans; whether it
shall be based on capital. Further, what
percentage of the bank's resources shall
be used in this way.
This proposition has been advocated
heretofore, but the, usual objection has
been made that it is not good policy to
have bank resources tied up in loans that
are not easily convertible. . The argument
for the proposed amendment is , that
granting of such a privilege to banks in
rural communities would be of great pub
lic utility. Attention is also called to
the fact that notwithstanding the pro
hibition in the national bank law against
the loaning of bank funds on real estate
security, such practice is followed by
many banks. . '. . ' ' '■•■
Mr. McCleary said to-day that the sug
gestion for proposed legislation came from
J. IC. Dickinson, president of the Fulda,
Minn., National bank. He says that he
does not propose to press for any innova
tions in the banking laws, but is trying to
find out the sentiment of bankers who deal
largely in farm mortgages in order that
necessary changes may be made. The
circulars sent out by Mr. McCleary were
all to country banks and none was sent
to the twin cities or Duluth because their
business is not of the kind that will be
benefited by the proposed change in the
law. Mr. McCleary expects to have the
support of the new secretary of the treas
ury, Governor Shaw, as he has had ex
perience in country banks, and has dealt
in farm loans.

NEW BRITISH COINS
Eifig-y olf King- Edward Will Appear
and Victoria's Become Scarce.
New York Sun Special Service
London, Dec. 26.—The British royal
mint, by order of the king, will strike
bronze and gold coins this week for the
year 1902, which will bear the effigy of
Edward VII., the first that will have the
likeness of the present rulerJ Silver
coins of the same character will be struck
in January. This means that the money
bearing the picture of the late Queen
Victoria will soon be a rara avis.
The design of the effigy of the king to
be reproduced on the new coins has been
executed by G. W. Desaulles, the designer
to the mint, and has been approved by his
majesty. It consists of a present day
portrait of the king's head, which is said
to be an excellent likeness. The crown
has, of course, not been introduced, in
view of the fact, that the coins will be is
sued before the coronation has taken
place. The bronze coins will, on the ob
verse, bear the same design and descrip
tion as the £5 piece, "and for the re
verse impression the figure of Britannia
seated on a rock surrounded by the sea,
her right hand holding a shield, which
rests against the rock, while in her left
hand she grasps a trident," ana the in
scription of the denomination and year.
The only difference between the new
coins and the present ones, beyond the
substitution of the king's effigy for Queen
Victoria's, is that the abbreviation "om"
has been introduced Into the inscription
on the obverse—"Brit Om Rex." His ma
jesty will thus be described as King of all
the Britains, this being a recognition of
the Britains "beyond the seas."

St. Louis, ■ Dec. 26.—Hermann Schmidt,

When he gets on the street car in the

the busy hours of the evening that he
could not see to read his paper, he said.
He found himself dropping behind the

no time to read during the day, and is too
tired at night to read. Rather than sub- !

evening he set ,to work to make a light that
he could carry with him. He used a piece
of copper wire eight inches long, a brass

Schnectady, N. V., Dec. 26.—The follow
ing story of a remarkable condition of
marital affairs comes from the village of
Clifton Park, Saratoga county.
Giovanni Peloc, an Italian, commonly
known about the village as John, was
married a dozen years ago to an Italian
woman of the village. A few years later
John's wife was seized with what was
generally regarded as a fatal illness. Mrs.
Peloc called her weeping husband to her
bedside and told him that she wished him
to marry her sister and wanted the cere
mony performed then and there, for she
could not die happy If she did nT>t se»
them married. The sister being a comely
young woman, the husband announced his
willingness to accede to his wife's dying
wish. The girl also acquiescing, the
ceremony was performed at the bedside
of the dying wife.
The first wife recovered and John found
himself with two wives. Both women
loved him and he was equally fond of
each, so they mutually agreed to live to
gether. This Mormonlike arrangement
continues to this day, both wives having
presented him children. What makes this
case still more remarkable is the fact
that the mother of John's two wives lives

Fergus Falls, Minn., Dec. 26.—The gas
well near Pelican Rapids is attracting a
good deal of attention. The gas was
struck at a depth of 118 feet. The drill
had gone through sixty feet of blue clay
hand had then struck a rock. A stick of
dynamite was sent down and exploded,
aud following the explosion there was a
heavy, rumbling sound and the gas began
pouring out of the pipe. A match was
applied, and the flames shot up to such
a height that it was feared the house,
which stood only a short distance away,
would be set on lire. For this reason the
blaze was extinguished and the pipe
Additional pipe was then sent out and
a line constructed to carry the gas some
distance from the residence. It was then
set afire and burned .throughout the day.
Toward evening it was again extinguished
and the pipe closed. The rumbling sound
continues unabated and no one knows
just what to make of it.
The discussion has brought to light the
fact that coal has been found in small
quantities in that vicinity before, and
there is a marsh about three miles dis
tant from which a peculiar oily substance
has for years been oozing, but whether
these matters bear any relation to the
well in question is problematical. The
gas is burning to-day, the pressure be

is a comparatively poor man, lives in a
house that rents for not more than $76
a month. Postmaster General Smith prac
tically spent his entire salary of $8,000 a
year and was compelled to write magazine
articles and add to this sum in other ways
to maintain an establishment. He finally
wearied of the struggle and took apart
ments at a hotel.
The matter of entertaining by a cabinet
officer can be reduced to a minimum.
Each cabinet minister Is expected once
a year to entertain the president and his
associates at dinner. Beyond this he can
cut out dinner giving. The secretary of
state in addition must give a banquet once
a year to the diplomatic corps. Secretary

to follow the social pace. It is sal dthat

Carriages and horses are furnished by
the government to cabinet ministers. All
ether expenses they must pay themselves.
A member of the cabinet, maintaining his
own house, must spend at least $15,000 a
year, or nearly double his salary, to keep
up ordinary appearances. He can run this
up to as high a figure as he likes. At
torney General Knox began by purchasing
a house costing $140,000 and. bringing here
a team of horses that cost $12,000. His
expenses will be vastly in excess of $15,

Officials May Be Removed.
lT*u> TTorie Sun Special Servloe
Washington, Dec. 26. —The successor of
Secretary Gage is expected to make a
clean sweep of the present secretary's
assistants. General Spalding, Milton E.
Ailes and Horace A. Taylor are all ex
pected to be separated from their salaries
very shortly after the new secretary Is in
stalled. Ailes will be the first to go. He
was Secretary Gage's private secretary
before he became an assistant secretary
of the treasury. While he is a very pleas
ant and agreeable young man, it is
charged that he Is not big enough either
by experience or personal attainments to
fill satisfactorily the position which he
holds. General Spalding, who has been in
the department a great many years, Is
suffering from that trouble which is usual
ly defined In Washington as "bureau rot."
It means that he has been in the treasury
department too long.
Mr. Taylor is the most vigorous and
original of the secretary's assistants. He
is a farmer. Before he became assistant
secretary he grew cranberries in Wiscon
sin. Powerful influences will aid Mr.
Taylor to hold his position and there is
a possibility that he will not be included
in the list of those who have to go. It Is
universally admitted that the treasury de
partment needs a shaking up more than
any | other of the great government de
partments. It is honeycombed with in
competents, aged and infirm men and
women, and with autocrats who, by reason
of the fact that they are protected by the
civil service, wield an arbitrary power
that Is scarcely less than that, of the
No Formal Tender of the Office Yet,
Dcs Moines, lowa, Dec. 26. —Governor
Leslie Shaw was interviewed last evening
with reference to his appointment as sec
retary of the treasury. He merely re
iterated that the president had confi
dentially asked him by wire if he would
accept the position if It was tendered to
him. He replied 'that he would accept,
but up to the present time no formal ten
der, of the position had been made by the
president. However, from the tone of the
dispatches from Washington, he assumed
the appointment would be made and that
to all intents and purposes the matter had
been fully settled.
The governor's term as chief executive
of lowa will not expire until Jan. 16. The
legislature convenes Jan. 18, and Gov
ernor Shaw,will be. very busy in the in
terim with the preparation of his annual
message, so that if the appointment by
the president' is made, he will hardly be
able to take up the duties of secretary of
the treasury before Jan. 20, and possibly

Governor Shaw has given close attention to
financial questions and has discussed these
questions in many states with great ability.
He has wide knowledge of public affairs; has
shown ability in his administration as gover

in every respect, and is well equipped for

appointment will be well received in lowa,

From Th« .Journal Bureau, Room 43, J'umt
v. Washington, Dec. 26. —The advocates of
ship subsidy are especially pleased with
the selection of Governor Shaw to be sec
retary of the treasury because of his well
known views in favor of legislation on
that subject. They are inclined to believe
that as a member of the cabinet his in
fluence on behalf of the Prey bill will be
felt.' Eastern newspapers that are cham
pioning the sUbsidy bill to-day quote ap
provingly from a speech made by Gover
nor Shaw at St. Louis a few weeks ago,
in which he said:
We can increase our foreign commerce by
the revival of a merchant marine. 1 am not
well enough informed on the subject to in
dorse or oppose any particular measure, but
something should bo done.

cabinet on any date the new secretary
may suggest. The change will probably

SIWASHES ARE DANCING

MlMHlonary Trie* In Vain to Stop
Them—Periodical Visit of
Special to The Journal.
Vancouver, B. C, Dec 26.—The Indians
of Chilliwack, a village on the Fraser
river about thirty miles from New West
minster, fare "ghost dancing," though
their indulgence in this will not lead —as
in the case of northwestern prairie In
dians —to any dangerous rising. The
Chllllwack Slwashes are too peaceable
for this and are only given to raising
small fracas, when they happen to secure
intoxicants. An old Chilliwack Indian,
named '•Joe," with "one foot in the
grave," has in order to meet a long feJt
want of the local tribesmen, built a
quaint dancehouse out of his savings of
many years, aDd at it the other day about
200 Siwawhes congregated at his invita
tion and had a great feast and dance.
These retrogressive performances are
periodic with the natives, and no amount
of persuasion by their missionary will
prevent them from indulging. They
claim that ages ago, the great spirit gave
them an ordinance to dance, or as they
call it the "Yowen." While under the in
fluence of the Yowem they claim they can
not resist his power over them and must
do just as he wills, whether it be to
dance, feast, or "potlatch."
During these visits of the. Spirit the old
er Indian may often be heard while walk
ing along the road, or while going about
his work, wailing in a weird voice, some
of his long departed fathers. It is ex
pected that many meetings will be held
during the winter in the dance house
here, and needless to say, this brings
sadness to the heart of the missionary.
