A WIFE'S HONOR.
Convincing Evidence Tbnt Mm.
Hegener Fired the Fatal Bullet at
a Vile Traducer.
The excitement over the tragedy of
Wednesday has subsided, and the great ad
vocate, "public opinion," has formed lo the
sympathy aud favor of the wife,
Mi's. Hegener, who was driven to
her desperate act to vindicate herself.
There are many who believe that it was
her husband's duty to avenge the at
tempted pollution of her character, and he
is condemned as a coward for leaving it to
be done by her. The universal comment
yesterday was in commendation of Mrs.
tlegener, and no word of pity could be
.card for the man Murphy, "whom she sent
(tiddeiily to a final reckoning.
Shut close in her prison cell. Mrs. Ilege
ler has had ample opportunity to reflect
upon the consequences, and her solicitude
;eems to be for her two young children.so un
j&remoniouslly deprived of a mother's care.
.he is not inclined to talk, but sits quietly
n the cell, and passes much of her time
toying with her magnificent hair, which falls
in shining waves, as black as the raven's
wing, below her waist. She rested some
iur!ng the night, and looked considerably
brighter yesterday. She eats regularly, and
was perfectly resigned when the verdict of
the coroner's jury was made known to her
in the afternoon. She had a long talk with
her husband, who is confined in an adjoin
ing cell, in the morning, and also held a
♦•(inference with the attorneys who have,
been retained in her defense, Messrs. Er
win & Ryan. A very, few friends were also
permitted to see her for a short time. A
The body of John Murphy was removed;
early in the morning to the undertaking
rooms of McCarthy & Donnelly, onW_-,
basha street. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon
the coroner's jury took the solemn oath
above the corpse, which lay upon the un
dertaking board. Tiie features had been
set for their death repose, and seemed to
bear an expression of quiet resignation.
The face was palid from the great loss of
blood, but otherwise looked natural enough.
the dead MAN.
The coroner had selected for jurymen
six intelligent men of sterling character,
nen whose judgment could not be ques
tioned and whose names are familiar to
every citizen. They were D. H. Moon,
Frank Keogh, J. F. Vitt, S. K. Howes,
A.lfred Dufresne and Ernest Albrecht.
Both Attorneys Erwin and Ryan were
present to represent the interests of Mrs.
Hegener, and Assistant Prosecuting At
torney Munn watched the proceedings on
behalf of the state. ! .
Very little was developed in the testi
mony which was not given to the public in
yesterday morning's Globe. Drs. Mur
phy and Hoyt. who attended Murphy, and
made the autopsy, gave evidence as to the
direct cause of death. The bullet had been
found in the base of the brain, badly
mashed. Dr. Welles, physician, and Pat
rick Mitchell, nurse at the hospital, told the
tale of the death bed. Sergeant Ernest
Boerner and Police Officers John Cooke,
and Roman Maznette, who were called to
the spot where Murphy fell, testified to the j
occurrences immediately subsequent to
the shooting. August Poscheneider, a
teamster for the Armour Packing
company, swore to having seen
Mrs. Hegener fire the shot while she was
standing not more than three feet behind
Murphy. Harry E. Miner, a ticket agent
of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway,
and George Dufour, foreman for St. Aubiu
«fc Dion, who were first on the spot when
Murphy fell, corroborated Poscheneider's
testimony. Leonard Schweber, proprietor
of the Winona house, corner of Third and
Sibley, where Mrs. Hegener first met Mur
phy on her arrival from Minneapolis, told
how he overheard hot words between them,
and that she followed Murphy out just be
fore he heard the report of the pistol. This
point was covered more fully in the testi- j
mony of Otto Wettwerr, who told precisely j
the same story as accredited him in the j

testimony is of the greatest importance as
showing the previous relations of Murphy
and Mrs. Hegener, and the motive which
impefied her to shoot, him. was kept upon
the staixl for some time. His story differed
little front the version published in this pa

RACES AT STATE FAIRS.
| The Judges of the Supreme Court
Differ as to the Rules Under
Which They are Held—Mr. Far
rier** Case— General Court Doings.
The supreme court judges yesterday gave
out an opinion in a case which, from the
principles involved, is of a good deal of in
terest. It was in the case of George W. 1
Farrier against the State Agricultural
society, to recover the amount of entrance
money for the races at the state fair a year
ago last September. When the time came
for a portion of the races, in which Mr.
Farrier had entered his horse, it rained,
and the managers of the society, on finding
that the track was not in condition
during the week, postponed the races until
the following week, fixing the date. This
action was taken, it was claimed, under a
rule of the National Trotting association,
of which the society was a member.
The rule provides, that iv case
of .-bad weather, the association
snail have power to postpone the
races until the next fair day and good track.
The agricultural society has a. rule of its
own, No. 0, which says that if owing to
rain the races are not finished by. Saturday
night the society has the right to declare all
races off and return the entrance money.
In this case the races were ■ setter Sept. 14
and 15, and Mr. Farrier was notified. He
declined to let his horses start and de
manded a return of his entrance money,
which was refused. He brought suit to re
cover it and the lower court sustained his
action. An appeal was taken by the man
agers of the State Agricutural society to
the supreme court. There is ; a difference
of opinion among the five judges .'"of this
court as to the case. Judges Vanderburgh
and Mitchell hold that the races are a part
of the state fair, and that according to the
rules ot the Agricultural society no post
ponement beyond the time in which the
fair is advertised to be held is provided for.
The officers, these two judges think, have
no authority to extend the time which ex
hibits in any department shall be held'
there, and the races they class as one of
the departments. Judges Berry, Gilfillan
and Dickinson, on the other hand, hold
that Mr. Farrier was bound by the rules of
the National association, as a part of the
contract under which his entries were
made, and that the society had at its dis
cretion the postponement beyond the dates
set for the fair. The decision of the court
below is accordingly reversed. Below is
George W. Farrier, respondent, vs. The State
Agricultural Society, appellant.
Syllabus Under the general laws of 1885,
chapter 174, section 22, the State Agricultural
society is required to hold an annual state
fair, upon the grounds owned by the state, at
such times and for such period as the society .
prescribes. When, in pursuance of this pro
vision, the society has fixed the dates within
which such fairs shall be held and advertised
the same, exhibitors making entries of stock
and wares in pursuance of such determina
tion, are not bound to keep the same on exhi
bition without their consent for a longer
period, though the executive officers of the
society assume to extend the time and con
tinue the fair later than the dates originally
fixed. But where persons have made entries
for the exhibition of the speed of horses sub
ject to a rule specially applicable thereto,
which allows such exhibitions at the option
of the society to be continued, in case of
storms, to the next fair day, and, if neces
sary, beyond the time fixed for the regular
fair, it is held by a majority of the court that
such persons are bound by such rule as a
part ot the contract under which their en
tries are made, and that the executive officers
may postpone such contests in conformity
with such rule, and such postponement con
stitutes no ground for the recovery of fees
advanced when the entries ate made. Judg
ment reversed. Vanderburgh, J.

•'Texas Tom."' Once the Light
weight Kilter For Pierre l.orillard
. '•A Hoy With a Record. .
Thomas P. Redmond, better known as
"Texas Tom," is in St. . Paul enjoying a
little recreation. He was formerly Pierre
Lorn lard's head light-weight rider, and for
several years past has been one of the most
successful backers of race horses on the
American tracks. About his . last appear
ance as a rider was at New Orleans in ISB3.
At Jerome Park in one day with a $10 bill
be won 810,000. There were seven winners
and he backed every one. He. is a ; slight
built, youngish, pleasant looking man, with
a dark complexion and a bit of a moustache.
He la a Bohemian, to be found sometimes
in Texas, then in Minnesota, perhaps in
Kentucky or New York, or any other state.
He is a wanderer of the wanderers. Mr.
Redmond talks very freely about
himself. He was born in, 1867,
but for thirteen years his life
has been so much associated with men of
matute years that there is nothing of the
boy left him, and the practice of wearing a
high silk hat, added to his conversation,
gives him the general appearance ■ and air
of one long past his majority; Many in
teresting facts were gathered from him yes
terday in conversation as to his tips and
downs. His first public appearance was in
Indianapolis, at the age of 6 years, when
he ran away from home and went on the
variety stage as a precocious song-and
dance kid. A year or two later a bron
chial affection ruined his vocal organs for
public singing, and for a long time he was
unable to speak above a whisper, and even
now his voice seems strained in ordinary
conversation. Drifting into Texas, he
learned to ride mustangs, and achieved
some notoriety as a jockey in the impromptu
quarter races that characterized the gather
ings of the stockmen. Getting back to the
racing centers of the East, he obtained em
ployment in galloping vicious horses that
were beyond the control of the boys em
ployed to give them exercise. '.
Young Redmond says he proved a pretty
tough customer, and his stable companions,
after feeling the weight, of his fists, were
so heartily down on him that everything
amiss about the stables was always laid on
the shoulders of "that d d Texican,"
and from this he received the clinging
soubriquet of -Texas Tom. Still, :he proved
a valuable hand for the work he was en- ;
gn ged for, and in one stable of particularly
vicious colts he was not discharged even
after he had shot at the head trainer for
cracking a whip at his legs for some act of
disobedience. Some time in IS7B he re
ceived his first mount for a regular stake
race, and after that, he nrosnered rsinidlv.
Among his best known early mounts were
Gen. Harden, Big Medicine, Toronto, Lady
of the Lake and other more or less famous ?
winners of their day.
IT WAS THE POISONING "'"£ -1 :.
of the last-named animal that first caused a
ban to be put on Redmond, and after this -
turf scandals piled up on his name at a
rapid rate. He lost "employment with the
crack stables, and became affiliated With a
tough crowd of fonts and sure-thing men, •
who stood at nothing to destroy to as great
an extent as possible the "glorious uncer
tainty" of racing.
About his last appearance in the pigskin
was on the New Orleans course in 1883,
when he was put upon the old campaigner
known as "Boston on the Table." Boston
was a horse owned by a syndicate of gam
blers who toured the tracks of the country,
dependent more on their winnings at cards,
however, than legitimate turf earnings.
They ran against some pretty good poker
players in New Orleans, and ? for a long
time could only sit in the game with barely
sufficient to ante in front of them. When
one of them would capture a good hand he
would bet Boston. The game bobbed up
and down this way for some time, the gam
blers, whenever their table stakes were
oversized saying, "Well, Boston's on the
table," thus raising their opponents to the
value of the horse. Finally the remark was
such a by-word that the horse came to be
known as "Boston on the Table." Boston
nearly ended Redmond's existence on this
occasion by running away, throwing him
off, and breaking his collar-bone and three
ribs. Since then he has been either in the
employ of the bookmakers or against them.
If he furnishes them information they
make their odds according to its purport,
and if he takes their odds they generally
He hardly knows when he was ever a
genuine boy; he never played a game of
marbles or ball in 1113 life, nor flew a kite, •
and the nearest action to the sport of youth
that he can remember is the robbing of a
melon patch in New Jersey. He has been
ruled off' a dozen race-courses, but on nearly
every one of them he has bought pools in
the down town auctions of the night be
fore and cashed them on the succeeding
evening. '■ ' : : >^:y
THE .INGLE MEN'S ENDOWMENT
An Attorney for Several I'olicy
Holders Conferring: as lo .low El is
Clients May Avoid a Heavy Assess
S. J. M. Malman, of Chicago* represent
ing fourteen claimants and policy holders
in the Single Men's Endowment association,
visited Attorney General Olapp: yesterday
in the interests of his clients. He showed
to the attorney general copies of J the asso
ciation's latest circular, informing some-,
thing like 120 policy holders that unless a
pleasant little assessment of $196.:.5 each
were paid in within a given time their
claims on the society for any funds to
which they might become entitled under
the provisions of the company and the
laws, would lapse. Mr. Malman asked the
attorney general what could be done about
it, but the attorney general said nothing
further than that the company was making
these assessments to square itself on a matter
involving some 850.000, or so, which it had
gotten behind the board In making assess
ments. Mr. Malman also held a consulta
tion with Insurance Commissioner Shan
drew on the same topic.
He said to a Globe reporter that he
thought few of the men who were assessed
this amount would ever settle up. He was
somewhat strong in his statements about
the company which he said had gotten so
far behind in its assessments that it would
never get on a solid basis. He said he
knew of several cases where single men in
Chicago had suffered considerable hardships
because of the reliance they had placed in
the endowment expected from this coiri
: pany. They had considered a policy in it
as good as a bank book' and had done busi
ness on that basis. Now they found them
i selves badly in the hole.
>' Considerable talk was heard among offi
■ cials on this subject. A movement is on
foot to bring a test Case in the state courts.
Some of the state house officials are of the
; opinion that policy holders are responsible
, only to themselves if they have lost any
l thing. One of these officials, who did not
1 care to be quoted, said yesterday to a
■ Globe reporter: •-?,..
; If a test case were mnde I think It would
result that the men who . have gone Into the

bad luck comes over • tho company, pull out, :
according to any law of partnership. If thoy
did not know what they. were getting into It Is

ment, are due the only thing in law for them
to do is to pay the assessment. It may be
hard on them, but they ought to have looked
