GOVERNOR JOHNSON GIVES
INTERVIEW AS TO HANGIN6
Continued from First Page
called 'boxcar' murderer. The
second time was for the hanging of
Gottschalkwho, by the way, com
mitted suicide in the Ramsey county
jailand the third time was for the
Williams hanging by Sheriff Miesen
in Ramsey county. These were all
during my fiist term of office. Now
comes the hanging of the two men
at Bemidji. I don't feel any worse
or any better about the signing of
the last death warrants than I did
about the first. 1 feel that I have
no option in the matter. That the
law has already taken its course and
that certainly I am not to blame for
the law just because my personal
opinions are diametrically opposed
to it. If I refused to set dates for
hangings of men convicted of first
degree murder and sentenced to
death, I would be violating the law
myself.
"I feel strongly, however, and
have for years"and here the gov
ernor's fist came down with an
energetic thump on the table at his
side"that capital punishment is
one of the things handed down to
this day from an age of the dim and
misty past. There is no moral
excuse, to my mind, for a handful
of men to bind and blindfold a
fellowman, to fasten a strap around
his neck, and then in cold blood to
let him drop through a trap to his
deathall just because of a few
words printed on the white page
of a law book says they shall.
"It is not right. It is the hand
ing down of the ancient Hebraic
law of an eye for an eye, a tooth for
a toothaye, of even a soul for a
soul. It was by such unreasoning,
unforgiving Hebraic law that Christ
was crucified'
"The time is surely coming when
the law which inflicts the death
penalty for crime will be wiped
from the statute books. It is there
on the statute books today, but I
do not believe the people of Minne
sota believe in it. It is an effect
for judging to administer to degen
erate men who deliberately take
the lives of fellowmen, but it is not
still operative through any general
sentiment in its favor.
"Do I believe in the death penalty?
No! Do I think that a man should
ever be hung under any circum
stances? No!"and once more the
clenched fist came down on the
table"And you can tell the readers
of The Tribune that if I were in
the legislature, I would do what I
could and what was within my
power to modify the existing law.
"in days gone by hundreds of
morbidminded people have been
allowed to witness hangings. This
has been so repulsive to me, that
since I have been governor I have
endeavored to have only those few
present the law allows, and no
more. I shall see to it that the
sheriff at Bemidji is notified that if
any of the morbidly curious who
have no business to be present are
allowed to see the hanging of the
two misfortunate and condemned
men in his hands,he will be removed
from office."
Turning to Harvey Grimmer, his
executive clerk who was present, he
remarked.
"Mr. Grimmer, please remind me
in communicating with the sheriff at
at Bemidji relative to these hang
ings, that I want the law and the

have comfortable quarters in which

Recently, the Grand Forks com

and Bliler make a fine double team,
and they transact business for the
Grand Forks people with "neatness

being the reluctance of their lumber
jacks to cut loose from the attrac

"tall timber" for manual labor.

NOT GIVEN ACTUAL CASH.
Chicago Depositors Paid by Check on
Withdrawal.
Chicago, Oct. 29.The banks of this
city are largely upon a checking basis.
They have taken the step of refusing
to pay out large amounts of currency
and will not return to the former man
ner of doing business until the finan
cial condition in the East improves.
In all banks belonging to the Clearing
house association or affiliated with it
depositors seeking to withdraw money
were given checks of the bank itself
instead of the actual cash. The de
positors are allowed to draw the full
amount of their balances, but they
were compelled to accept the bank's
checks instead of currency.
The rule requiring savings bank de
positors to give thirty days' notice be
fore drawing out less than $100 and
sixty days' notice before drawing out
more than $100 was also put in force.
The local banks declare that they
were compelled to adopt these rules
because of the action taken by the
banks in the East, which would soon
hare drained this city of its cash re
sources.
Within an hour alter the opening
of the doors fully 400 people were
lined up at the withdrawal windows
of the Illinois Trust and Savings bank,
which has the largest number of sav
ings accounts in the city. Depositors
were allowed, if they wished, to take
out sums under $100, but for all
amounts over this the full legal no
tice was required.
The general agreement on the part
of the banks to protect their supplies
of currency affected the city govern
ment. City Treasurer Traeger ran
short of cash and City Comptroller
Wilson stopped the payment of the
salaries of city employes by checks on
the city treasury.
BY ORDER OF GOVERNOR.
All National Banks in Oklahoma Re

Oklahoma City, Okla., Oct. 29.
Every bank in Oklahoma City remains
Closed in accordance with orders is
sued by Territorial Governor Frank
Frantz. It is understood that the or
der affects all national banks in Okla
homa and Indian Territory.
The action was taken because the
banks of Kansas City and St. Louis
refused to forward cash to the banks
of the Southwest. It is said that a
telephone consultation of many of the
bankers of Oklahoma, Indian Terri
tory, Arkansas and Northern Texas
took place and that all decided on sim
ilar action.
There has been no uneasiness in
this city and the bankers say the de
posits last week were greater than at
any previous week In the month. The

1 IS BETTER
Financial Conditions in New York
Continue to Improve.
HEAVY GOLD IMPORTATIONS
Engagements Already Made Aggre-
gate $17,500,000 and Have Had a
Very Helpful InfluencePressure on
the Banks Distinctly Abating.
New York, Oct. 29.The financial
ltuatlon continues to show encourag
ing evidence of improvement, aa ex
ceptionally large engagements of gold
have been made abroad and the stock
market is advancing on the general
demand for securities at low prices.
The gold engagements now total $17,-
600,000 and already exert a very help
ful influence. There are considerable
orders from abroad for American se
curities, which must be paid for in
gold, and this will augment the specie
imports. Investigation also discloses
an exceptionally large number of
transfers of stocks upon the books of
the various corporations having head
Quarters in New York, indicating
heavy investment buving.
There are practically no margin
transactions on the stock exchange at
this time. No failures have been re
ported anywhere in New \oik and
even in the case of the Kansas City
Institution which closed its doors it
was forced to close only because It
was refused admittance to the priv
ileges of the clearinghouse remedial
efforts in that city.
The pressure upon the banks in
New York is distinctly abating. No
new runs have been reported and
those begun last week have dwindled
to almost insignificant proportions.
Wall street has assumed practically
its normal appearance, the crowds be
ing no larger than in the days of
financial quietude The adoption of
clearinghouse certificates and the re
fusal to pay cash for hoarding pur
poses has produced no apparent ex
citement whatever In this city.
In order to assist in the measures
undertaken to relieve the strain on
the currency situation the leading life
Insurance companies have decided to
grant thirty days' extension of time
on the payment of premiums due on
policies.
tTon in case of a run. Since tEe Tanks
here could not get cash from Kansas
City In case of a run they considered
the risk too great. Tho banks of this
city are carrying many of the small
banks over this territory. They have
arranged to issue clearinghouse cer
tificates until conditions improve.
The banks of the Southwest are fur
ther embarrassed because of the de
mand for cash to move the cotton crop
CASHIER KILLS HIMSELF.
Dollar 8avlngs Bank at Akron, O., Or
dered Closed.
Akron, O., Oct. 29.The Dollar Sav
ings bank has been closed by order of
ihe directors until after the funeral
of Mr. Boron, the dead cashier. In
the meantime a further Investigation
of his accounts, is going on and a
movement is also on foot to have the
other banks of the city take this In
stitution over. The sixty-day time
limit has been ordered enforced on all
savings accounts 4n the banks of the
city.
Coroner Davidson announced that
he had decided that Fred Boron had
eommitted suicide, there being noth
ing to substantiate the murder theory.
The revolver used was one kept at the
Dollar Savings bank, of which Boron
was cashier and tieasurer, and the
weapon was lying by his side when
he was found.
A deficit of $25,000 has been discov
ered in the accounts of the Dollar
bank, according to members of the
directorate. This fact was kept hid
den from the directors, it Is said, by
Boron borrowing money temporarily
whenever the directors counted the
money, while at other times he car
ried the notes as cash.
MINNESOTA BANKERS ACT
Measures Taken to Prevent a Drain
of Cash.
Minneapolis, Oct. 29.Bankers from
Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth at a
meeting held here took measures to
prevent a drain of cash.
In view of the action of the banks
in the central reserve cities of New
York, Chicago and St. Louis in refus
ing to ship money to them it was de
cided that no money should be paid
out on checks, certificates of deposit
or drafts, except for small sums, and
no money should be furnished corre
spondents. Checks on balances in the
hands of the banks will be certified
and paid through their clearinghouses
only.
Savings banks, trust companies and
the savings departments of banks will
require the sixty and ninety-day no
tice to which they are entitled.
EXCHANGE STILL CLOSED.
Only Evidence of Financial Flurry at
Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, Oct. 29It was decided
not to open the Pittsburg Stock Ex
change at a meeting of the board of
directors. Just when the exchange
will resume transactions is not known.
It is the belief in some quarters that
the exchange will remain closed
throughout the week.
Aside from the suspension of the
exchange there is nothing else worthy
of mention in the local financial sit
uation.
Controlled by C. W. Morse.
Bath, Me, Oct. 29.The Bath Trust
company, a small bank controlled by
Charles W. Morse of New York, closed
its doors as the result of withdrawal
of deposits. State Bank Examiner
Skelton immediately took charge.
President W. B. Maussendon stated
that the suspension of business was
due to lack of currency. The capital
is $100,000 and deposits $500,000.
Omaha Banks Get in Line.
Omaha, Oct. 29.All national banks
In Omaha have ceased paying cur
rency in more than $100 amounts and
on small accounts only 20 per cent of
the amount on deposit will be paid.
For amounts above 20 per cent of de
posits clearinghouse certificates are
issued.
SPANIARD'S WEIRD TALE.
Thousands of K.s Countrymen Prison
ers in Philippines.
Madrid, Oct. 29.A Spaniard named
Bulguera, a recent arrival from Ma
nila, has caused some excitement here
by a story to the effect that there are
more than 4,000 Spanish prisoners in
Bulacan province, island of San Juan
del Monte. They are held by Tagalos,
who compel them to drag their plows
They are whipped and treated like
beasts of burden and the only reward
they get is a scanty ration of green
corn.
Bulguera has related his story to a
correspondent of El Pueblo and he
says that in June last ninety Spanish
prisoners tried to escape by swim
ming. Practically all were drowned,
he says, but he succeeded in landing
on the opposite bank and was subse
quently able to reach Manila. Then
he went to the American authorities,
who provided him with passage for
Cadiz. He reached that port in Sep
tember, but was only ale to reach
his native town a few days since,
where he had long been given up for
dead.
Story Doubted at Washington.
Washington, Oct. 29.The bureau
of insular affairs at the war depart
ment places no credence in the story
of Bulguera, the Spaniard, who al*
leges he was held a prisoner by Fili
pinos in Bulacan province. San Juan
del Monte, which Bulguera refers to
as an island, is not an island but a
mountain city on the border of Ma
nila. From the time Manila was taken
by American troops San Juan del
Monte has been within the American
defenses.
Admit Charges Are True.
Chicago, Oct. 29.W. H. E. Dysen
and his wife, who were arrested re
cently in New York on the charge of
robbing department stores, confessed
to the local police that the charges
against him were true and informed
the officers where the property which
they had stolen could be recovered.
In a house at 338 Ohio street the po
lice discovered jewelry valued at $2,-
000, which the Dysens said had been
taken from various stores here and in
Milwaukee.
BIG SLUMP IN WHEAT
Drop of Four Cents in Price on
the Chicago Board.
OTHER GRAINS AFFECTED
Financial Conditions at New York and
Precautionary Action Taken by Chi
cago Banks Responsible for the Fall
In Values.
Chicago, Oct. 29.The financial con
dition in New York and the action of
the local banks in deciding to issue
clearinghouse certificates and to de
mand full legal notice on withdrawal
of time deposits caused a weak mar
ket in all of the grain pits. Wheat
within a short time after the opening
struck a point 4 cents lower than the
previous day's close. The opening for
December wheat was 97% to 98 and
from this point the price slid down
to 96. At 10.30 it was holding around
97. The selling was in quite large
volume, but the demand was slack
and buyers were to all appearances
extremely reluctant to take hold. Brief
rallies took place after the breaks,
but the principal buyers were shorts.
There was little buying for investment
and the refusal of the banks to pay
out large amounts of cash limited the
opportunities of prospective purchas
ers to put up the margins demanded
by the brokers.
Both corn and oats were weak for
the same reasons as affected the
Wheat market.
Trading in Grain Suspended.
Duluth, Oct. 29.Trading in grain
has been suspended on the Duluth
board of trade owing to the money
conditions No sales were made in
either cash grain or the options, al
though the tradingroom was open and
the members on the floor. Business
will not be resumed until conditions
improve and the country elevators are
being advised not to buy grain.
MARKET CLOSES WEAK.
Early Prices on Stock Exchange
Showed an Advance.
New York, Oct. 29 The stock mar
ket had a strong opening, all the prin
cipal actii stocks selling at sharp
advances, but with very light transac
tions lecoicied. The greater advances
Were in Sugar, Northern Pacific, Amei
ican Smelting, Westinghouse Electric,
Toledo, St Louis and Western pre
ferred, Amalgamated Copper and Chi
cago Great Western preferred A.
Some of the stocks in the active class
sold at declines. Business came al
most to a standstill after a few min
utes, but the market retained a steady
tone.
Additions to the sharp advances
were made when more stocks came
into tile quotations, but the general
level of the active list did not extend
Its advance. St. Louis Southwestern
preferred rose 4*4, Illinois Central
and Consolidated Gas 3, Great North
ern Ore Certificates and Manhattan
2Vs and National Lead and General
Electric 2. There were occasional de
clines on single sales in the inactive
list. The maiket was inactive.
Prices of stocks sagged somewhat
when it became understood that the
banks would deal directly with stock
exchange borrowers instead of through
a pool, as was the case last week.
Money on. call, after opening at 12 per
cent, loaned at 50 per cent and there
was some calling of loans.
The readjustment of loans necessi
tated by the dissolution of the bank
ers' pool caused some awkward con
ditions and induced some liquidation
in the stock market during the final
hour of trading. Prices fell back all
around.
Any disposition to assume money
obligations for the purpose of operat
ing in the stock market was frowned
upon and business in the stock ex
change was kept at a low ebb. The
delay in the appearance of supplies of
money there caused no anxiety, as
Intimations were given that loans
would be carried over another day
and money would be supplied when
needed most. Prices continued to
show advances.
SOLELY AS A PRECAUTION
Boston Clearinghouse to Issue Loan
1 Certificates.
Boston, Oct. 29.The Boston Clear
inghouse association has decided to
issue clearinghouse loan certificates
bearing interest at 7.3 per cent. The
high rate of interest is for the pur
pose of retiring the certificates at the
earliest possible date. The New York
rate is 6 per cent. The loan commit
tee of the clearinghouse will pass upon
collateral and approve the issue of the
certificates at 75 per cent of the mar
ket value of the securities.
Leading bank officials declared that
the adoption of the clearinghouse cer
tificates for the settlement of bank
balances was solely as a precaution
against the withdrawal of money by
persons desiring to hoard it or to take
advantage of high currency rates In
other cities.
Suspension at Kansas City.
Kansas City, Oct. 29.The Bank
ers' Trust company, with deposits of
$800,0U0, closed at 10:15 a. m. Cash
ier J. C. Hughes said that they had
decided to clcse temporarily because
the Clearinghouse association had re
fused to extend to them the privileges
granted the thirty other leading banks
here of issuing clearinghouse certifi
cates. POSITIVE IN HIS OPINION
Professor Todd Declares Mars Is In
habited.
Boston, Oct. 29."Mars is inhab
ited. A race of beings of high intelli
gence dwells there and probably has
dwelt there for ages."
^This is the positive declaration that
Professor David Todd of Amherst
makes after his trip on the great Low
ell expedition to the Andes moun
tains, where the neighboring planet
has been studied and photographed for
months. _.
To fSe queptlons, "What sort of peo
ple live on Mars are they small, to
compare with the size of the planet?
Have they larger heads, making room*
for their high intellect? Must they
be very powerful Individuals to do
such tremendous canal digging? Or
are they aided by huge blasts in their
undertakings?" Professor Todd re
plied:
"I suppose, if the inhabitants4
of
Mars are forced by necessity to de
velop and use a high order of braflns,
there must be wonderful mechanics
among them, capable perhaps of de
vising machinery that \vill do their
heavy work. That, however, is mere
conjecture. Of couisr we could not
see a man or his house or his giant
domestic animals thiough our most
powerful glasses unless the man,
house or animal were three-quarters
of a mile long and wide and dark in
color.
"But the whole canal svstem looks
artificial and it Is a wonderful exam
pie of engineering and industrial ef
fort."
WILL NOT BE REOPENED.
