After the dress rehearsal of "For
Old Eli" held at the Brinkman thea
tre yesterday afternoon, the coaches
pronounced the play ac
ready for the
first presentation this evening.
Weeks of drill have finally made a co
operating cast that is ready to work
together in a finished production.
Doors will be opened at the theatre
at 7 m. this evening and the show
will start promptly at 7-30. There
are four acts and it is estimated that
it will take about two hours and a
half to produce the play. In order
that the waits between acts will not
be considered long, Mr. Brinkman
has arranged to throw several mov
ing pictures on the screen.
The play calls for special costumes
and for the most part they have been
furnished by Bemidji business houses.
-he suits for the girls have been
loaned by tne Berman Emporium,
the hats have come from the Hen
rionnet millinery parlors, and the
boys' outflttings from Schneider's
store Carpenters in the high school

special scenery which will reproduce

Football college plajs were the
first to appear, then baseball was
dramatized but the play tonight
deals with the track team of Yale
in the annual Yale-Harvard meet.
Track work occupies a more promin
ent place in the campus life of East
ern colleges than Western but the
interest is gradually moving west
and the scenes tonight will give an
accurate portrayal of the excitement
at Yale when the big meet is "pull
ed off" in May.
Walker, captain of the Yale track
team, is down in his subjects and
must cram in order to be eligible for
the meet. While trying to grasp the

Professor Allbright are interrupted
by a group of girls who have come to
make an informal call.
The day of the meet finally comes
but much to the sorrow of the men of
Old Eli when it is found that Carson,
the man on whom the meet depends,
was intoxicated the night before and
it is feared that he has gone stale.
To add to the misery of the occasion,
Captain Walker sprains his ankle by
stepping into a starting hole and is
unable to run his race. He calls for
a volunteer and Carsonbut it is
bad policy to tell a!1

HYDE TRIAL STARTS
New York, Nov. 22.After a de

Hyde, forme" city chamberlain, is to

the part he is alleged to have pjayed
in the great scandal involving the
heads of the Carnegie Trust company,
the Joseph G. Robin banking enter

machine. Hyde is under an indict

formerly head of the Northern bank,
to aid Joseph B. Reichmann, presi
dent o: the Carnegie Trust company,
and William J. Cummins, executive
chairman of the same bank, by mak
ing fhem a loan of $100,000 when
Robin had stated that to do so meant
ruin to his bank. The work of se

criminal branch of the supreme court
and it is expected to have everything

The former city chamberlain was
indicted chiefly on the tesimony of
Robin. According to Robin, Hyde
told him that if he would come
through with a loan to the then tot

Hyde, would see that the municiapl
deposits were increased in Robin's
Northern bank. If Robin had refus

HELD BY INDIANS
UntflM a. m. this moriiing, a rec
ord breaking number of Red Lake In
dians sat in council with Congress
man Steenerson while matters of gen
eral interest to the Chippewa Indians
and of especial interest to the Red
Lake band were discussed. Congress
man Steenerson and "Chief" Dick
ens came down from Red Lake this
morning and reported that more In
dians attended the council than any
other council ever held in the his
tory of the reservation.
The meeting of the Indians was
called at the request of Congressman
Steenerson to talk over the matter of
the handling of the Indian timber,
drainage of the lands at the outlet
the Red Lakes, payments, etc. Mr.
Dickens said that although there was
some friction manifested at tne start
of the meeting it had disappeared be

A regular annuity payment of $75
is being distributed to the Indians
this week. This is the first payment
in about one year and as the last one
was a small one the Indians are busy
settling up old accounts. The pay
ments of $75 per capita are general
to every Chippewa Indian in Minne
sota, the money being drawn as infor
terest on the Chippewa general fund.
About $110,000 was distributed at
the agency this week.
Owing to the late hour at which
the council adjourned, Congressman
Steenerson was unable to reach Be
midji for the Elks' social last night.
DIED OF ALCOHOLISM
Ed Collins Said to Have Suffered
from Delirium Tremens While
on Way to Leavenworth.
GIVEN LIQUOR BY DEPUTY
Leavenworth, Kan., Nov. 22.For
the second time in the history of
United States penitentiary here, a
prisoner died in the institution of
acute alcoholism. In his report of
the death, Dr. A. F. Yohe, prison phy
sician, made his report accordingly.
The prisoner was Ed Collins, brought
from St. Paul, November 16, to serve
a sentence of one year and one day
for selling liquor to Red Lake In
dians at Island Lake, Minnesota.
Upon his arrival at the prison,
Collins' condition was such that he
was taken immediately to the hos
pital. When the condition of the
prisoner was called to the attention
of the officer who accompanied him,
the latter is said to have admitted
that he gave the prisoner liquor to
brace him up. The name of the offi
cer could not be learned. He i.as re
turned to St. Paul.
An inspector is making an inves
tigation of the affair.

Collins to Leavenworth.
United States Marshal Grimshaw
says that Collins had been suffering
from delirium tremens and it had
been decided by the officials that it
would be necessary to give the pris
oner a moderate amount of liquor
while en route to Leavenworth. Dep
uty Tufts had been instructed to that
effect, he said.
Collins was convicted in the fed
eral court at Fergus Falls of selling
liquor to the Indians.

VICTIM OF BLUNDER
According to a dispatch from Min
neapolis, Judge C. W. Stanton of this
city was the victim of one of theuea
worst blunders known to Miuiesota
politics. It is said that after ad
vertising had been placed in Minne
apolis papers asking the voter to
press key 42 if they wished to vote
for Stanton, key 42 was assigned to
Judge Brown. There is no way of
learning how many votes were cast
Brown when intended for Stan
ton. Judge Stanton lost Hennepin
county by 14,000 votes.
Judge Stanton, when interviewed,
stated that he would take no action
in the matter as he believed he would
not be elected even with the Henne
pin vote thrown out.
