"Tin re Is nothing new to be given out,"

concerning the German Orphan Asylum In"
"The report published this morning ia
the Times gives the whole story so far as
I have it."
It is learned that the charge made by
Mr. Brlchl Is discredited, and that a part of
It is without foundation. Mr. Briehl al
leged that the children wer not separated
at night, boys and glrLs being placed in
the snmu rooms. This statement Is said to
be wholly without foundation.
Col. Tracy's method of eliciting Infor

such as to arrive at the facts In the Cast,

He Rajs, after referring to the com

ment of her son, George Turner, by an
officer of tbe institution, that no corporal
punishment was Indicted by Suptr En1
mold: that young Turner was struck on
the back by bis half-sister, Minnie Folk
and also that she placed a sun heated'
stone on the hoy's face and leg.
The report continues by saying, upon
examining the children of the institu
tion, statements as follows were elicited-
Minnie Folk was the first examined,
and. after considerable crow-examining,
admitted that she bad used the hot stone
for fun while the boy was lying on a
bench, when George Rothague held him.
George Rothague testified to seeing Min
nie do what she stated.
Mamie Lavender said she saw Minnie
strike George Turner with a stick.

controversy extending over a number of
years as to the control ot certain lands

The troubles were finally sett led by treaty,
the understanding lieing that the amount
of the damages said to be sustained by
the expelled Mexicans should be referred

dollars, while Guatemala, on tbe other
hand. Insists that afew thousand dollars will

Prices advanced all along the line, the
gain in some cases being as much as 1 3 4
per cent. The buying was stimulated by
tbe statement that gold shipments are
over for the ecason; a better demand for
St. Paul for foreign account; the lncreasa
of $319,970 In the earnings of the North
west for August, and the further rise, in
refined sugar of 1-16 per cent. ter pound.
The feeling altogether was more con
fident, and the bulls added to their lines.
