MICHAEL FOLEY OF FORT DODGE
QUARRIED THE STONE.
Old Iowan Has Just Celebrated His
Eighty-second BirthdayStone from
Gypsum Quarry Was Carved Into the
Giant in Chicago and Buried in New
Special to The Journal.
Fort Dodge, Iowa, Oct. 24.Surrounded hy a
hnppy family of children and grandchildren,
Michael Foley of this city celebrated his eighty
second birthday anniversary with good chances
for participating In many to come. Mr. Foley
has lived a quiet life for many years, but remem
bers well the time that he was engaged to
quarry the rock which was afterward made Into
"Cardiff giant," one of the most colossal
frauds ever perpetrated upon an unsuspecting
It was in the month of July, 1868, that two
men, one giving his name as Hull, of Syracuse,
N. Y., and the other Martin, claiming to be from
Cedar Kapids, engaged quarters at the old St.when
Charles hotel in this city. They pretended to
be studying the geographical conditions about
Fort Dodge. They made several Inquiries as
to where they could find a large ledge of gyp
sum rock. They even went so far as to buy
an acre of ground and quarried It with a view
of finding out just what they wanted, but failed,
They were finally Informed in a casual way
that Michael Foley, who was engaged In getting
out rock for a railroad company, could in all
probably get them what they wanted. When
pressed for an explanation as to what purpose
they Intended putting the rock, Hull explained
that they were going to ship it to New York
to exhibit for the purpose of raising a stock
company to manufacture plasterparls. Martin
said they were going to tuke it to Springfield,
111., as Iowa's contribution to the Lincoln monu
ment, which was then being built.
When Mr. Foley was interviewed consernlng
the stone, he informed them that he could fill
their order. He had just stripped a ledge of
gypsum rock about 100 feet long. On the topmunicipal
of this he drilled some twelve holes and poured
In about fifteen pounds of powder. A long fuse
touched it off at once and the rock was broken
loose in spleuded condition. It was twenty
four feet long, three feet wide and eighteen
The stone was shipped to Chicago, where It
was given in charge of a sculptor, who carved it
into a giant, pricked it with needles, while it
was soft, to give it the appearance of human
skin, treated it with acids to give it the an
cient appearance, and packed it in an Iron box,
twelve feet long, four feet wide and three feet
deep, und In this manner shipped it to George
Olds, at Union, X. Y. It arrived at Union on
Oct. 13. 1808. On Nov. 4, a man claimed the
box. receipted for It, loaded it on a large wagon,
hitched four horses on and carted it fifty miles
to a place near Cardiff, in Onondaga county.
New York., where the giant was buried and
remained until Oct. 1C, 1869, nearly a year, when
the resurrection took place while men were pre
tending to dig for a well. Special trains were
run from New York, carrying visitors by the
thousands, to see it. and it is estimated that
50,000 persons visited the bpot the first week
after It was discovered and paid $1 each for a
sight of the giant made from the stone quarried
by Michael Foley.
LEAVES THE TICKET
Democratic Nominee in Palo Alto Not
in Sympathy with His Party.
WEST BEND, IOWA.C. E. Clark of Ruth
Ten, democratic nominee for clerk of courts of
Palo Alto county, has withdrawn from the ticket.
It is Intimated that as he voted the gold demo
cratic ticket in 1S96 and has always opposed the
free silver heresy, that he is not in sympathy
with the party.
The grand jury went on a tour of inspection
of the county jail, being led to do so by the
escape of two thieves, Brown and Martin, whd
are still free. They reported to Judge A. D.
Bailie of Storm Lake that the jail Is "unsani
tary, unsafe nnd Insecure, and that the only
remedy Is the building of a new one." Judge
Bailie thereupon ordered all prisoners to be con
fined in the county jail of Kossuth county at
Algona. The voters of the county have twice
voted down the proposition of a new county jail.
James Murry, better known as "Jesse James,"
aged 18, was sent by Judge Bailie to the state
dipsomania institute at Cherokee for three years.

CHARLES CITY. IOWA.The growing de

-search for it in the United States, and scien

many others, have lone searched the vast do

However, Professor Clement L. Webster, a geol

discovered crude potash in the Hocky mountain
region In practically inexhaustible quantities,
and of a quality and purity never known.
'ireat quantities or crude potash are annually
imported into this country from abroad, especi

sources for the manufacture of this material
In America are rapidly decreasing, the outlook
was unusually bright for the imported article
to dominate the American market for a long time
to come. The discovery made by Professor
Webster, however, will soon effectually bar this

Three Probable Candidates for
to The Journal.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Oct. 24.The old
idea of making a new state of the upper penin
sula has been revived by the citizens of this
part of Michigan. But the old plan of tacking
on a part of Wisconsin has been dropped,- the
general opinion being that the upper peiiinsnla
is large and rich enough to become a separate
state without acquiring any new territory.
Advocates of the plan favor calling the state
Superior, which would be the most representa
tive name that could be chosen. The upper
peninsula is growing rapidly, both in population
and wealth. Its mining interests are assuming
mammoth proportions, while it will be but a
short time before some of its cities will be
large manufacturing centers.
One of the chief reasons for wanting a change
is that the peninsulas really have very little in
common. In politics,, the northern part of
the state has never been represented as it should
be, leading politicians feeling that they have
been given nothing but the crumbs. Their
strongest men have been turned down in favor
of less worthy aspirants for public favor, simply
because, it is alleged, the upper peninsula has
always been sure to give a big republican ma

nearest to the center' of the peninsula, but theWOMEN

and the victim was a working girl on her way

One young fellow who was stopped happened
to have a stick and made a Quick move and
caught the highwayman over the face and head
with the result that the robber took to his heels.
Altogether there were five holdups, but nothing
was accomplished by the police and the thieves
obtained but little.
A well dressed young fellow tried his hand
at raising "easy money" thru the forged check
route and the buying of clothing and getting a
substantial amount In change back. As it hap
pened the local clothing men have become rather
wily and all checks now have to pass thru a
rigid censorship, and that is how Roy Lowry
became entangled in meshes which landed him
in the county jail to await trial. Before coming
to Fargo he tried to cash the fraudulent paper
in saloons and clothing houses in Moodhead.
The name he attached to the check was that of
a prominent insurance man.
