Huron, Dak., Feb. 3.—The weather
yesterday and last night'was the most dis
agreeable experienced here for years. The
velocity of the wind was twenty-five miles
an hour. It blew from the northwest, pil
ing tiie snow in high drifts. Trains were
all sr-pended and no mails were sent out
yesterday. The wind ceased during the
night, and at 7 this raging the mercury
marked 38° below. Trains were sent
out on the various lines to-day,
. but none except one from the
west arrived. They will be , through
to-morrow. No reports of suffering by set
tlers on the prairies hays been received, but
it will be surprising if all have escaped the
severity of the past thirty-six hours. For
tunately plenty of fuel can be had at all
the stations west and north, where the storm
is reported more severe than here or further

Sioux Falls. Dak., Feb. 3.—A1l the
trains on the several roads leading to Sioux
Falls, excepting the Burlington, were

BisMAncK, Dak.. Feb. 3.—The mercury
'to-night has dropped down' to 30 ° below
zero, but the blizzard has died out and there
are promises of tolerable weather. The
train from the east is fifteen hours late and
it is not known when the one from the west
will be here. Business is almost at a stand
■ still, and were it not ton- the legislature and
supreme court the town would be
dead. To-day the business transacted
by both houses of the legislature was
light. The rooms were cold and an early
adjournment was taken. A splendid ex
hibition of the innate modesty of the aver
age Dakota citizen was given in the council
to-day. when the house bill raising the age
of consent in females from 10 to 12 years
came up for consideration. There were
two ladies in the room at the time, and
modest Ted Kingsbury, the chief clerk.
couldn't stand the pressure, and sought
refuge in the cloak room. The bill was
dropped for a time, but it finally became
necessary to take, it up, when, blushing
deeply, Mr. McCumber arose and moved
that it be laid over until an opportunity
came when he could discuss it as he saw lit
to. The ladies finally left, and the bill was
taken op and passed,
FIXING TIIE AGE OF CONSENT
at 12 years. Another bill asking tor the lo
cation of a soldiers'home showed up in the
council to-day. it asks that the home be
set down near the enterprising townsite of
Frankfort. There are so many bills of this
nature now before the two bodies that the
death of some of them is an assured fact.
If any of the bills pass this session it will
provide only for location and will have to
go begging tor an appropriation. Business
in the house was terribly dull and the
members were blue in the face. Their
teeth chattered and they seemed to
be principally disposed to get
warm. There was but one bill
introduced in the house and that was the
repeal of some law of but little importance.
A council bill providing for the burial of
soldiers and sailors who served in the late
war was passed. This with second reading
and the reference of several bills completed
the business transacted in this body. The
council bill authorizing and empowering the
organized counties of Dakota to issue and
dispose of bonds to provide funds to pay
outstanding indebtedness and to provide for
the payment of the principal and interest
thereof, passed the house. There is a jeal
ousy growing up between the house and
council over the fact that the council gives
but little attention to house bills sent to
that body for passage. They are usually
referred to various committees that neglect
to report them back, and the house charges
that they examine bills, get the points and
introduce bills themselves, covering the
same points and perhaps others. The
bouse has got an idea that the council
should pass every bill just as they send it to
them, and the council reserves the right to
amend as it sees lit. This
CURATES SOME FEELING
between the members of the two bodies that
may break out in bad shape before the ses
sion closes. Mrs. Packard, the well-known
philanthropist and advocate ot woman suf
frage issue, is here from Chicago, and an
nounces her intention of taking part
in the law making before, the session
closes. She has a will with her
which she proposes to introduce. It
provides for rights and protection for in
cites of jails, penitentiaries and insane
asylums. She has pitched her tent in the
field and given it out that she proposes to
stay with the gang awhile. It is expected
she will be granted the privilege of the
floor and given a chance to cut a swath tor
herself. Petitions yards iii length are being
received by different members from
the rural districts asking for
such legislation as will give the whisky
traffic a black eye. One came up to-day, to
J. V. White, of Clay county, signed by
400 residents of that part of the country,
and an accompanying letter regretted th at
lack of time had prevented the list being
swelled to thousands. Unless the temper
ance issue throws some life into the work,
this session of the legislature will pass very
quietly and in strong contrast to the rip
roaring session two years ago.

THE AFTERNOON SESSION .
was called to order by President Potter.
M. J. McKenstry, of Winnebago City,
made an address on the subject of "Cream
eries and Their Products." He said the
word had gone forth that he was especially I
j a creamery man, but that while he had
proven the value of- creameries, he was an
| advocate of every form of good dairying.
j He practically demonstrated the milk test
aud answered many questions regarding his
theories. It was one of the most satisfac
tory addresses and discussions of the meet
ing. F. D. Holmes gave his experience in
heating water for cattle; Warm it to 60 °
: at first and the cattle will drink freely. He
used a farm steamer and ran the water
through pipes to a trough. One day when j
the pipes broke the ' cows shrunk seventy
pounds of milk.. This proves the value of
warm water. It will make by actual trial 8
per cent, more butter. Mrs." M. 11. Lamb
read her prize essay "How to Make Dairy
ing a Success." It was a detailed
description of a model system
of. home butte.T_naking. " Ensilage
and Its Benefits." was discussed by F. D.
Holmes. The plan is to make an air tight
room and fill it wjjh corn fodder, cut green
about three-eighths of an inch long. By
care in storing it will
COME OUT FRESH AND SWEET
in the spring, if cut after the dew is off.
The room is made of masonry, plastered
like a cistern. His cost __0. A silo can
be made of wood, but it is more difficult to
make it air tight and is not so permanent.
Cream should certainly be churned every,
day. Mr. Wilkinson, of Owatonna, built
a silo of boards and building paper and had
good results. He used 1,00. feet of lum
ber, and it was fourteen feet deep. Mc-
Kiustry's experience with a wood silo was
satisfactory. It was the cheapest kind for
the prairie. Mrs. N. C. Holmes read ail
essay descriptive of home | butter making.
Patience..cleanliness and dispatch were the
three principal essentials of success. C. S.
Dunbar inquired if there was any butter •
in cows' horns. If not what is the _e__'. "'
in them? Why not cut them off? E. E.
Budlong, of Glenville, had cut the horns off
forty cattle and was greatly pleased with
the results. E. K. Pickett, of Bancroft,
believed dehorning should be done with
calves and not after. J. H. Monrad thought
a vicious polled cow more dangerous than a
horned cow. Budlong said dehorning did
cattle good. It only hurt (luring the pro
cess. Cows gave just as much milk. lie
used no remedy on the wounds. Dehorn
MAKES CATTLE PEACEABLE
and prevents fighting and irritation. 11. C.
Howard was decidedly in favor of dehorn
ing. C. S. Dunbar illustrated the danger
of horns. A general discussion of an hour
followed. President Potter read an address
on "How.to Rid the Market of Poor But
ther and Cheese." He said that three
years ago it was hard to get enough poor
butter and cheese to supply the demand in
the Northwest, the good being to high to
sell.. Now poor butter is a drug in the
market. The best is in good demand. The
people want good, soft, open cheese. Ed
ucation has brought this about. All but
25 per cent, of the 30,000,000 pounds
made in Minnesota is now good.
A bill was reported by the committee to
present to the legislature, asking Si, 000
annually to aid the State Dairymen's asso
tion. The report was unanimously
adopted. F. 11. Holmes presented a
requisition to defray the expenses of efforts
in obtaining the passage of the anti-oleo
margarine bill. The committee on awards ;

. Boston, Feb. 3.—The Globe to-morrow
will print an article signed by one of its
staff coi_espondents,disclosing the details of
what is one of the most heartless' conspira
cies in the annals of crime, and which im
measurably strengthens the old adage that
fiction stands no chance when truth is up,
dressed and ready for business. The infor
mation comes direct from relations, who
have been for months at work on the plot.
Some months ago the news was flashed
over the country that Mrs. Malloy, the
noted temperance apostle, known and
loved by thousands, had been accused
of the most immoral practices, had
been the associate of social lepers and
an accomplice of prison convicts and a
partner in their work. Throughout the
West Mrs. Malloy visited many penal insti
tutions, exerting a•: salutory influence, and
was prone to speak of her prison boys with
whom "she regularly corresponded. One of
them was George Graham, serving a sen
tence for robbery. For him Mrs. Malloy
secured a pardon and placed him on a farm
at Sprhigfield. vr hich property was left her
by friends. During Graham's incarceration
his w^fe had procured a divorce. At the
farm Graham mfct, wooed and won Cora
Lee, Mrs. Malloy's adopted daughter. It
soon transpired that prior to his meeting
with Cora Lee he had re-entered into a
with his divorced wife. The latter soon
appeared on the field and consternation
reigned. In the course of time she disap
peaied and there was no trace of her until
a badly decomposed body was found in a
well on the Malloy farm. This body was
identified by the clothing as Graham's first
wife. George Graham, Cora Lee and Mis.
Malloy were arrested and tried for the
murder. Graham's testimony implicated
himself and the two women. He also tes
tified that he had been on terms of undue
intimacy with Mrs. Malloy. The latter
proved a partial alibi and was ultimately
discharged. Graham was taken from
jail by a mob and lynched. Mrs. . Malloy
employed detectives upon the case, and
after mouths of labor, they now assert that
Mrs. Graham is alive and the body
found in the well was exhumed and placed
in the well as a result of a conspiracy.
When Sarah Graham was first missed it
was given out that she had gone to the Pa
cific slope to see a brother named Gorham,
who is a soldier in the regular army. De
tectives were sent to the West to search
for her. The commander of the post where
Gorham is stationed was communicated
with and gave the officers important aid. It
was found a woman answering the descrip
tion of Sarah Graham was in regular corre
spondence with Gorham.
THIS UNKNOWN FEMALE
passed as Mrs. Blank. Her hiding place
was ascertained to be in a small village in
Wyoming territory. In the same village
lived a second woman whose real name is
Blank. : Into her hands fell a letter in
tended for the bogus Mrs. Blank, and in
the search for the real owner of the 'epistle
it came out that the said owner was taking
extraordinary pains to conceal her identity;
that she visited the postoffice only at hours
the least liable to be observed, always ap
proaching by a rear street and entering by
the side door. Having lost one letter, she
gave the postmaster explicit orders regard
ing her mail aud alsogave him the post marks
which her letters would bear. The detect
ive showed a photo of Sarah Graham to the
postmaster and he immediately identified
the photograph as • that of the mysterious
Mrs. Blank. The present whereabouts of
the woman are not known and a search
and arrests are prophesied in the near fu
ture. The motives of this conspiracy, which
resulted in Graham's lynching and the tar
nishing of Mrs. Malloy's fair name is said
to have been a quarrel between Gorham
and Graham regarding the division of cer
tain spoils and Mrs. Graham's wrath be
cause her husband had bestowed his hand
upon another woman. .
Worked the Funerals.
New Orleans, Feb. _ 3.—The police
have succeeded in getting a pickpocket for
whom they have been looking for years.
During the past tour years over 100 com
plaints have been lodged with the police of
pockets being picked at funerals, and it is
probable that these represent only a few of
the victims. At a funeral on Custom House
street yesterday ■. a woman dressed in
handsome mourning, and apparently
very old and feeble, was in attendance,
weeping piteously.. over her deceased
friend, and speaking ••••_ in the most
feeling terms of the poor lady. The de
ceased, by the by, was a man. The mis
take aroused the suspicions of the family.
The old lady was watched, and not in .vain,
as she pushed, her way into the crowd
around the coffin, and was seen to deftly
and cleverly slip a pocket-book out of the
pocket of one of* the mourners. A" police
man was called and the woman arrested.
She proved to be Margaret A. Murphy,
who has been living for years in comforta
ble and respectable circumstances on the
profits of her pocket-picking without arous
ing the slightest suspicion. She confined her
operations entirely to funerals.^ _t..
A taloon Fight.
Chicago. Feb. 3.A small riot took
place on North Market street early this
morning, which promised serious results
and alarmed the neighbors besides dam
aging the saloon which served as the bat •
tie ground. A crowd of intoxicated men
took possession of .Andrew Yader's bar
room at No. 378 Market street, shortly
after midnight,.and closed the.front door.
Another crowd came along about 1 o'clock
and demanded admission, hearing the voices
and seeing the light within. Being refused
and defied by the occupants, they com
menced a fusilade with stones and snow
balls. This was replied -to from the inside
with bottles and other missiles. Finally a
sortie was made and pistols were drawn
on both sides, a number- of shots being
firen. Police officers came upon the scene
as the riot was at its height. and arrested
seven young men. John Faith, one of the
number, had a wound in his arm. All gave
bonds for a hearing to-morrow.
The Schwartz Trial.
Morris, 111., Feb. 3.The examination
of Henry Schwartz for the murder of - Ex

ployes of the express company and railroad

struggle which ensued the enraged man j
shot a man named Fleming in the wrist. I
. H« was finally overpowered, when it was
found that he had two more revolvers,
loaded and ready for use. on his person.
Mrs. Ingram was removed to - her - home,
1 where she is lying in a critical condition.
A Double .Murder.
Breslan, L. 1., Feb. This village
and vicinity was thrown into great excite
ment over the horrible discovery this morn
ing in a house in the back woods, about a
mile and a half from the village,of the dead
bodies of a man and woman, Germans,
i whose names have not yet been ascertained.
The house is situated some distance off the
main roads. The man's body was lying in
a pool of blood on the floor in a room down
stairs with the throat cut from ear to ear.
The woman was found in a bedroom up
stairs with the head severed from the body.
Both had evidently been dead five or six
days, as decomposition had already set in.
It is suspected that they were murdered and
robbed. There is no clue to the perpetra

Two Sluggers Fight I welve Rounds
To a Finish Near Chicago.
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, Feb. 3.— most desperate
fight which has taken place in these
parts for years came off at an early hour
this morning in an old distillery at Ham
mond. The. principals were Ed Berry, of
New Haven, Conn., and John Murphy, of
the stock yards. Twelve rounds were
fought, and they were decidedly bloody,
Murphy, the defeated man, being pounded
into an almost unrecognizable mass. The
men wore kid gloves with the fingers cut
off. The battle was for a purse, and as all
who witnessed the mill were assessed S3, the
victor realized a neat sum. When the men
stripped it was apparent that they lacked
training. Berry weighed 153 pounds and
Murphy 155. From" the start the men
meant business. Berry quickly showed his
superiority, and after the third round 4>ad
ended odds of two to one were offered on
him. The seventh, eighth and ninth rounds
were terriflic and Murphy went to grass
several times. The eleventh round proved
a bad one for Murphy. lie was knocked
down twice, but each time responded before
j time was called. ' When time was called
for the twelfth and last round Murphy pre
sented* a terrible sight. He was awfully
disfigured about the face, and blood flowed
from his wounds in torrents. He made
several ineffectual lunges at Berry, who in
turn struck Murphy a left-hander under the
ear, knocking him senseless. He failed to
respond and Berry was given the stakes.
The crowd reached the city at daylight.

Washington. Feb. 3.— Something like

A petition of right, by Morris S. Miller, of

dress in the case where A. Pedjrerton, J. H.
Oberly and Charles Lyman, commissioners,
and others trespass upon his civil and politi
cal rights and privileges by exercising unlaw
ful authority and powers .....
The petitioner asks for an order or judg
ment restraining, enjoining and prohibiting
the commissioners and all persons from ex
ercising the illegal and
. UNCONSTITUTIONAL powers
set forth, and for such other and. further
redress as the court shall deem sufficient to
vindicate the liberty of the petitioner, and
which will adjudge, .determine and declare
that the people of the United States are not
subjects, but sovereign citizens., the gov
ernment in substance as well as in form of
the republic. The petition forms a printed
volume of ninety-four pages, the most of
which is devoted to a declaration that
the civil service law is unconstitutional
because it confers on a board • created by
the legislative branch of the government
powers of selection and appointment to
office expressly reserved to the president
by the constitution. Various other reasons
are also put in the paper. It is believed
this proceeding is the first taken . with a
view of testing the legality of the coumiis
son's existence. After the petition had
been presented the court stated that the
matter came up in such shape that it would
be necessary to consider whether it should
be taken up directly upon the basis of the
petition or allowed to come up on certifi
cation from a lower court.
The Diplomatic Dinner.

Cleveland entertained the diplomatic corps

A Bill to Buy New Cruisers—The
Question of Railway Attorneys
s Discus***.!. '~/._-.._ .; ,\ '"''•'"■ :'.~"£]':'~y]
Washington, " Feb. There were
thirty, senators present at prayers this
morning. The credentials of Senator Whit
thorne. showing his election by the legisla
ture of Tennessee for the unexpired term
ending March 4 next, were presented, and
he took the oath of office under them. Up
to this time he had held his seat under the
governor's appointment. Senator Saw
yer's (Wis.) credentials for the full term
commencing March -I next, were presented
and placed on tile. Mr. Evarts introduced
a bill for ' .he purchase of the John Ericsson
Destroyer and ten enlarged steel vessels of
the same type for
defending the harbors
of the United States." (Appropriating
8112,000 and 53,000,000 for the purposes re
spectively). A resolution offered last ses
sion by Mr. Installs to discharge the com
mittee on pensions from the further consid
eration of the bill removing disabilities for
arrears of pensions from honorably dis
charged soldiers was taken up and Mr. In
galls stated that his object was to have the
bill brought before the senate for action.
The resolution was agreed to—yeas 37,
nays 30. Mr. Ingalls slated that as the
bill was one of great consequence he would
not ask the senate to vote on it instanter.
He gave notice, however, that early next
week he would move that the senate pro
ceed to its consideration.' The bill was
placed on the calendar. At . 2 o'clock the
senate proceeded to the consideration of the
bill to ■> ,
PROHIBIT MEMBERS of congress
from acting as attorneys for subsidized rail
road companies. Mr. Evarts addressed the
senate in opposition to the bill. He fa
vored an amendment to be offered as a sub
stitute to the bill by, the senator from Dela
ware (Mr. Saulsb'ury). That substitute
made it unlawful for any member of con
gress to accept employment . as general
counsel or attorney, or to receive payment
for services as such counsel or attorney
from subsidized railroads, with a provision
that it shall not be construed to prevent
members of congress from appearing as
such counsel in state or federal ' courts, in
suits in which the United States is not a
party. He argued that the proposed legis
lation was uncalled for. The rights of cit
izens were not to be invaded because honest
employment might lead to criminality.
Should the apothecary's shop be suppressed
because a poison was dealt from it? No, the
poisoner was punished, but the drug store
was not suppressed. In order to be con
sistent they should pass a law forbidding
members of congress trom taking any fee.
But nobody had thought of proposing any
thing of that kind; and this bill was not of
that nature. Upon the conclusion of Mr.
Evarts' speech the senate went into execu
tive session. The house amendments to
the senate bill for a public building at
Owensboro, Ky., were agreed' to. -The
doors were reopened and the senate ad

The Appropriation Bill*.
Washington, Feb. 3.—The legislative,

ported by the appropriations committee to
the house to-day makes a total appropria
tion of 520,25 C,910, which is less than the
apnropriation for the current year by $418,

tained in the bill is a provision that no part
of the money appropriated for the civil
service commission is to be used until the
commission repeals the rule forbidding the
appointment of applicants over the age of
45 years. The number of surveyors general,
which is now fifteen, is reduced by the bill
to eleven, and it is provided that on and
after July 1, 1888, all of the offices of sur
veyors general shall be abolished and the

Madison, Wis., Feb. Both houses of

for the collection of wages must satisfy the
judge that he is unable to give security for

THE tate-m _ANN CONTEST
was called up and Tate sworn in and
seated, the assembly reserving privilege of
further investigation of his right to retain
the seat as it may choose. The fight be
tween the Wisconsin River Improvement
company and Tomahawk Land and
Boom company still continues with una
bated vigor. i All day the committee on state
affairs has listened to exhaustive arguments
on both sides. The Chicago. Milwaukee &
St. Paul Railway company owns about hali
the stock of the Tomahawk company,
which it acquired with a view to the
revenue to be derived from .handling . lum
ber in that section and is therefore taking
active interest in the proceedings. It ha?
been repotted that concessions have been
made which would settle the matter to the
satisfaction of all parties, but whatever
agreements have been made do not appeal
to hold. A number of representatives oi
the rival factions watched so closely the
discussion that it is hardly probable tha*"
any agreements have been made. Remon*
strances have been made, signed by over
500 citizens of Wausau and vicinity,against
the passage of the "Tomahawk" bill.

Special to the Globe.
Washington, Feb. 3.—The house com
mittee on claims has reported favorably a
bill to pay Maj. Rubble, former Indian
agent at White Earth, the balance due him
on salary in consequence of the consolida
tion of the Leech Lake and Red Lake agen
cies, and an increase of salary from $1,000
to $2,200. The senate has passed a bill
correcting the accounts .of Norman
Thatcher, formerly receiver of the Menasha
land office, Wisconsin. The house Indian
committee has made a favorable report on
the bill granting the right of way to the
Spokane & Palouse Railroad company
through the Cceur d' Alene Indian reserva
tion. The road will run thirty miles through
the reservation to reach the Cceur d' Alene
mining district. These Indians are farm
ers, and last year raised 100.000 bushels of
grain. They want the road built.
Senator Sabin says the house bill to credit
Dakota with 827.650 for ordnance and
arms will pass the senate. It has been re
ferred to the military committee, and given
to Senator Manderson as a sub-committee
for report. The house bill to confer brevet
rank on all officers of the army now on

FOR GALLANT SERVICE
in Indian wars, does not apply to Minne
sota officers. The terms of the act do not
go back further than the year 1867. Dele
gate Toole will try in the house to eet an
appropriation of $25,000 for a special sur
vey of the timber and mineral lands in the
Northern Pacific railroad grant in Montana.
His failure to secure a recommendation for
an appropriation from the senate commit
tee on appropriations is due to Secretary
Lamar's wish that the prosecution of the
Montana Improvement company- be con
cluded before these surveys are made. Del
egate Toole's proposal was in the line of
compliance with the recent decision of the
supreme court of Montana, that Judge Gal
braith's opinion that the United States and
Northern Pacific railroad were not tenant?
in common of these ttnsurveyed lands, bu
that the United States had been dilatory it
not surveying the land before this. Mr,
Lamar says he wants congress to keep it'
hands off this fight.

that the present winter has been severe on
ranee cattle, and that the losses in Wyom

some pains to ascertain the facts regarding
the matter, and has interviewed a number
of gentlemen who are largely interested
in cattle, and whose herds range.
at.: widely divergent portions of
Wyoming and Dakota. All reports agree
that so far as this territory and Southern
Dakota are concerned, the range cattle bus
iness has suffered no unusual loss during
the present season. Should the spring be
as favorable as the winter has been, the •-•■;
season will close with'-remarkably small
losses. Up to the present time range cat

usual at this season of the year. :^g^B___SSw
