THK FIRST RECEPTION.
The Globe was at home to its friends
in its new building last evening and
gave a cordial welcome to the crowd of
visitors who thronged its rooms from
7to it o'clock. We endeavored to make
the evening a pleasant one for our
guests, and after witnessing the various
processes by which a daily newspaper
is made up, we are satisiied that all of
them went away with more enlarged
ideas of the magnitude' of newspaper'
work than they ever had before. Peo
ple who glance over the morning paper
at their breakfast tables have but little
idea of the vast amount of labor in
volved in getting out the paper. Here
after each Saturday evening our doors
will be opened and visitors received.
There will be gentlemen in waiting to
conduct visitors through the various de
partments of the office and furnish -all
explanation that may he desired. An
invitation is extended to everybody to
attend these Saturday evening recep
BISHOP IRELAND'S RETURN.
The people of Minnesota, without re
gard to sector party, unite in rejoicing
over the safe return of Bishop Ire
i.AM). Till" cordial reception tendered
him on his arrival home yesterday by
the people of St. Paul was a fitting tes
timonial of the love and esteem in
which he is held by the entire popula
tion of his native city. It is here Where
he is best known that he is most loved
and respected. His visit to Pome has
been a most profitable one. both to him
self and the useful and influential
church whose interests he so ably rep
resented at the Vatican. The distinc
tion bestowed upon him by the highest
dignitaries of the church during his so
journ in the Eternal City indicates the
prominence he enjoys in ecclesiastical
circles as well as the deep veneration
for the man and bishop. The church
has few such able prelates and the state
no more useful citizen than the Rev.
In his speech the other evening before
the Federal club in New York, Theo
dobk Roosevelt said that the political
fence was a very picturesque haven of
refuge for a time, but a little ridiculous
as a permanent abode. Mr. Boosevelt
ought to know what he is talking about,
for lie has been a fence climber him
self. Yet there is a good deal
of force in what he says.
Independence in politics is to be com
mended, but neutrality never. Every
citizen ought to be a politician, not a
machine politician, but one who is al
ways sufficiently interested in political
matters to lake an active part in adjust
ing them. The man who is neutral in
politics, who has no opinion on public
matters and doesn't care to inform him
self, or to make an exertion to wield a
personal influence, is not a good citizen.
There may come a time now and then
in tin; commotion of politics when a
decent man can't find a place to stand,
and at the same time maintain his self
respect. Then, if ever, lie is justified
in taking to the fence. But, as Mr.
Roosevelt says, the fence should not
be his permanent abode. As soon as
the temporary disturbance is over, he
should climb down ami go to work
again. The best thing, however, is
never to permit politics to get into such
a turbid condition as to compel voters
to take to fence climbing. And if
every citizen does his duty and takes
the interest lie ought to take in political
matters, there will never be any danger
THE TARIFF AS AN ISSUE.
It seems to me that the great question
to he wrestled with in 1888 will be the
tariff. In the last presidential cam
paign the platform of the Republican
party declared in no uncertain words 'in
favor of a high protective tariff, while
the Democratic platform was equally
positive in favor of a low tariff. Now,
if the voters of the country could be
controlled by the resolutions of party
conventions, the issue would be squarely
made upon this very important question,
but queer enough, parties themselves
are divided. There are high and low
tariff men in both parties.
The platform of the Democratic party
demanded a revision of the tariff laws,
but when the question was brought up
in the last congress it was found
."hat so many Democratic members
Wi-re in favor of a high tariff that
all legislation for the relief of the
country, in that direction, was absolutely
impossible, and in the meantime the
people are compelled to submit to war
taxes after a period of twenty years of
profound -peace. Almost a fourth of a
century has passed since the smoke
cloud of battle reared itself above the
horizon, yet the burdens of the war are
still upon us. The result of the high
tariff is seen by all. An immense sum
iiio»'>v is wrenched annually from
the tax-burdened people only to be will -
drawn from ■ circulation and .deposited
In the vaults of tin* treasury. So full •
have they become.'tbal it has been nec
essary to increase their capacity, for the.
storage of the enormous surplus, whicii
for all the relief it gives might just as
well be thrown into the sea. So much
money being tied up reduces the circu
lating medium and thus diminishes the
trade and business of the country.
("an we hope for a change? It will not
come until each voter shall determine
for himself how he shall vole, regard
less of party. Here in Minnesota,
where nine men iv every ten are In
ravor of tariff reform, the majority for
Mr. Bi.AixK, the high tariff candidate,
was something over 45,000. There are
some aide editors In this state in favor
of a low tariff, but. in the last presi
dential campaign supported, in their
columns, a man who claimed the suf
frage of the people on the ground of his
high protective views. I am not In
favor of free trade, for that, in my
opinion, would injure our home indus
tries, but 1 am in favor of reducing the.
tariff so that the revenue derived there
from may meet the expenditures of the.
government- This will amount to about
?hXMHK),ooo, and when placed between
our own manufacture- and those of for
eign countries, will furnish reasonable
protection for those of our own.
It is a little singular that the moral
reformer, of the day, who are invoking
the aid of state and national legislation
to help tin m out in enforcing the ten
commandments, should be so discrimi
nating in regard to the commandments
th.;;! are to be obeyed. It seems never
to have occurred to them that the com
mandment wbiih prohibits covetous
ness has as much binding force as the
others. When Moses published the
decalogue lie evidently had an idea that
it was a complete code in itself. By the
time tin- reformers of this generation
get through amending it and curing its
defects by supplemental legislation.
Moses himself wouldn't recognize the
decalogue. The world is a good deal
bigger and older than it was in Moses'
time, and a great deal faster. Its prog
ress in age and development has proba
bly brought a great many vices into
existence which even Satan* hadn't
thought of in the days when the ten com
mandments were written. This is proba
bly the reason why modern reformers
think they are justified in improving on
the primitive ideas on morality which
prevailed at the time MoSES was the
world's law-giver and A Alio x the judi
cial interpreter. However many reasons
exist for moral innovations, there is no
reason why any one of the ten com
mandments should become obsolete.
The decalogue is something that may be
added to, but cannot be taken away,
from. Its integrity is indestructible.
It, therefore, becomes a matter of sur
prise that with all the efforts that are
being made to regulate the morals of the
people by legislative enactments, it has
never occurred to the reformers to se
cure an enforcement of the prohibitory
clause, against covetousness, "Thou
shall not covet" was written as plainly
on the tablet of • stone as. any of the
other nine commandments. Notwith
standing this fact it is lamentable
that the majority of reformations
which are being pressed upon
public attention these days origi
nate in a spirit of covetousness.
One individual sees another prospering
in a particular line of business, lie
covets his neighbor's prosperity, and
because his circumstances are such that
he cannot eclipse or even rival him, he
concludes that the best thing for him to
do is to reform his neighbor out of bus
iness. With all the evil in tiie world,
there is no denial that covetousness is
the worst vice of all. It is the worst be
cause it covers a larger area in the hu
man heart than all others. With the av
erage individual it permeates every,
crevice and touches evere fibre of the
heart. It is, tin fact, the mainspring
of human action. We see its develop
ment in the .selfishness of this world.
The gross materialism of the age is
founded on covetousness. The desire
to possess something that is in the pos
! session of somebody else is the motive
power which is driving us along at
the break-neck-to-the-devil speed with
which industrial life is moving. The
chief aim of every man's life is to hog the
away is the work of the successful ones.
Pulling down anil destroying that which
the successful ones have hoarded away
is the work of the unsuccessful ones.
And yet both are actuated by that same
spirit of covetousness. lt is singular,
we repeat, that it has never occurred to
! the reformers of the day that the* world's
; morals will never be successfully.regu
! lated until this one commandment,
; '•Thou shalt not covet," is equally en
■ forced with the other nine.
It may be simply a coincidence, but in
i view of the great number of positions of
! trust now being held by Democrats, it may be
', of Interest to our Republican friends to
| know that the Southern gentleman who has
preserved a fortune of "5700,000 intact for
its owner through twenty years is a Demo
crat of the most ardent kind.

him from Africa, and if anybody did the pla

ment steamer which took (•ueen KAi>ioi_Nion
trip to Mt. Vernon the other day. If all naval
officers are as silly as Lieut. Cow use, it is a
fortunate thing for the country that the navy
is small. When the queen went aboard the
steamer the commander with true American
instinct had to lire a speech at her the first
thing. Considering that Lieut. Cowles is in
the services of a republic whose people abhor
everything like homage to royalty, and the
additional consideration that the queen of
Hie Sandwich Islands is a dusky old
dame and as ugly as a mud fence," the lieu
tenant's speech was about the silliest thing
that was ever uttered.
The following is the speech as reported In
the Washington papers: 'Task yourgraeious
majesty's permission to speak. [The queen
bowed her bead.] His excellency, the secre
tary of the navy, begs that your majesty will
accept his respectful homage, and begs that
your majesty will accept this vessel to convey
you to Mount Vernon, the resting place of
the illustrious founder of this country. The
secretary is always glad to render any service
to a beautiful woman, and is doubly pleased
to-day in the fact that that beautiful woman
is your majesty, the wise ruler of a nation
near and friendly to us." If Secretary Whit
ney authorized his subordinate to taffy the
old woman in that style he ought to retire
from public life.

The Chicago Strike.
CHICAGO, May 14.— Builders' and
Traders' exchange was crowded with its
members this morning in response to a
call of the president for a special meet
ing. It was declared that the working
men themselves were responsible for
the whole trouble, and not the members
of the exchange, as most people sup
posed. The master masons had granted
all the demands of the. men until they
were served with a notice which read:
"We have met and fixed Saturday as
day." That was the last straw,
Resolutions were passed endorsing the
action of tne Master Masons' associa
tion, and promising them active aid and
assistance during the present strike.
The different associations of building
contractors, the state board of archi
tects and the Chicago real estate boards
were requested to send committees of
three to a general conference to be he^-d
on Wednesday next at 10 a. m. The fill
ing dispatch was received from Williaf

Central railroad. Before it could
be gotten under control, it com
municated to Theodore B. Chase's
grain and feed mill on Eleventh avenue
and to some Wooden hay sheds on Thir

from Thirty-third to Thirty-fourth
streets, and sparks and burning frag
ments were whirled onto houses 700
feet distant. Two brick buildings
on Thirty-fourth street, owned by the
Rochester Brewing company, also
caught lire and were destroyed, and
about twenty horses burned to death.
The Manhattan market building, among
whose occupants are Armour A, Co.. the
Chicago Beef company and the Man
hattan Beef company, was saved
by - strenuous efforts*. Ambulances
were called, to -be used in cases of
emergency, and this led to a rumor that
there had been loss of life, which, how
ever, proved untrue. The aggregate

' " "■ ' " ' BIG WINNIE. T
The Fattest Woman on Earth to
Visit St. Paul. 77;! _ 1
This woman was born in Mocksville, i
Davey county, N. C, on the plantation .
of Col. Abraham Nail. At birth she
weighed thirty-six pounds. Her mother
died in giving her birth; she grew rap
idly, at 0 years of age weighing 880
pounds. People came from all directions
to see this slave child of enormous pro
portions. Winnie was sold for 17,500,
and placed on public exhibition in the
city of Charleston, S. ('., where she at
tracted the attention and as
tonished the entire population of
teat city. From Charleston she
visited Savannah nil various cities of
the South, at last arriving at New Or
leans, where she was exhibited for over
one year. While in that city the second
sale of Big Winnie, the slave, was con
summated. Christopher B. Brestle paid
$28,000 in gold for her. He visited Cuba
and all the adjacent islands, returning
to the South just before the breaking
out of the rebellion. The big slave
lived on, increasing in size day by day
until she was so big she could not get
out of the cabin. Her master died and
the slave who cared for her was gathered
to his aneesters. At the termination of
the war Winnie was forgotten by all the
world, except those who lived in the
immediate neghborhood. . In 1872
John Robinson's circus and men
agerie visited Asheville. N. C. It
was the first big show that had visited
that section since before the war and its
flaming advertisements drew all the
people from far and near. Among the
great gathering was a neighbor of Big
Winnie's named Nicholas Norton, who
visited the side show, where -there was a
fat woman who was then thought to be
as big if not the biggest woman living.
Norton pooh-poohed the idea and re
marked to the showman "there is an old
slave up in the mountains where I live
who is as big as a dozen of your big
woman." This excited the curiosity of
the showman and he made arrange
ments to visit Norton's home and in
spect this huge, human Big Winnie.
The outcome of that visit was that
Norton and the showman entered
into a partnership, made a contract with
Big Winnie to allow herself to be shown
to the world once more. The old cabin
was torn down to get her out and again
the big slave babe flashed on the show
world, a babe no longer, but the largest .
woman ever known or. shown. Johnson.

He Was a Deputy. '*"' ' '
To the Editor of the Globe.' '
If the Globe will kindly permit me. 1
will answer the article of Fred Itichter
in the Gi.onE of the 12th inst. lie is
right in saying that I "was appointed by
competent parties to take the person to
Rochester," but is not correct when he
says I never was his deputy, for I was
appointed by Sheriff Richter to take a
man to St. Peter, and got the large sum
of $2 for my services. Henry O'Gorman
appointed me at one time to take a lady
to St. Peter, for which service I received
$7. Judge Gorman appointed me to take
the insane man to Rochester, ami gave
me money to pay all expenses and
agreed to pay me liberally for my ser
vices; and furthermore, the judge does
not lay any blame to me for the man
getting away, which shows that the
judge is just and sound in his judgment.
It was the duty of the sheriff to have
secured the man so (hat he could be con
veyed to the place of destination safely.
I consider Mr. Kic.hter to blame for the
whole business, and better not say any
more about it. Ph. Stelzer,

number of readers, thought the moving
Into the magnificent ten-story building
which was finished and made ready for
occupancy May 1, was an event of such
rarity and importance as to require an
extraordinary effort in getting out an
issue that should- be a marvel in size and
matter. That the effort was extraor
dinary and produced an almost unprece
dented result the paper itself moves.
The paper was no! only issued out of
a new building of lowering height and
value, but was printed by new machin
ery v on brand new type: The spe
cial edition comprised twenty pages.and
0 i the same day Ihe.'dLoHE got out the
regular edition, comprising the news in
sixteen pages more, making thirty-six
pages in all. The special ' dition
was devoted to an account of the rapid
growth of St. Paul and Minneapolis; to
a detailed description of the Clone's'
new building, machinery and processes;
biographies or narratives of its editors
and i rineipals of the several depart

7 Contested Senator-ships.
Illusion Herald. . -
:l Senator Sherman is, we think, re
ported Incorrectly in his views of the
AVest Virginia • senatorial case. The
senate has decided that, under the
clause which makes it the judge of . the
'election of its own members,- it . may
admit a senator elected by a legislature,
'even in violation of the constitution of
, the. state from which he comes. This
"was decided in the ca.se of the lirst elec
tion of Mr. Trumbull from Illinois, and
where there was a partisan temptation
to decide the other way. This fully
covers the West Virginia case.

The Carleton Opera company played
to a good business at the Grand during
the past week and gave a series of de
lightful entertainments, including "Er
mihie," * "Nanon" and "Merry War."
The first production of the revival of
"Merry War" was on Thursday night
and was . universally conceded to be
one of the smoothest first night perform
ances ever known. The new costuming
in this opera is magnificent.
The attraction at the Grand this week
will be W. J. Gilmore's spectacular play
called "Devil's Auction, or the Golden
Branch," under the management of
Charles H. Yale. This is the largest
traveling organization of the kind in
the country, and notwithstanding the in
creased railroad rates Mr. Yale
continues to carry all the original scen
ery and stage, properties with him. The
"Devil's Auction", organization has
been on the road for five years, and has
always been known for its startling
sensations. The management 'claims to
have added many new ami interesting
features to it this season. The play 'Is
comedy, drama, tragedy, opera, panto
mime and variety all combined. There
are three ballets and three premiers.
The costuming is prepared by Godchauf
& Co., eostumers to the opera house,
Paris. The grand peacock ballet is a
feature of the performance.

Several People Writing Up ttee
Special to the Gloi>e.
New York, May 14.— The anticipated
row has broken out over the biographies
o' Henry Ward Beecher. The closest
friends of the dead pastor, even his rela
tives, arc at odds in the matter. Rival
a rimes of canvassing agents will soon
spread themselves over the country,
and the lives of listeners will be made
miserable by the opposing talk. For
awhile it looked as though Mark Twain
could keep the lead. He had a contract
completed with Mrs. Beecher and her
sons within two weeks after the demise.
Col. William C. Beecher and Samuel
Scovil, a son-in-law,' were to be the
writers, aided by other rapid men. and
all the material left by . Beecher was to
be utilized. The terms were that Twain
and Mrs. Beecher should share the
profits equally, the costs of production
being first paid. It was given out that
no other biography would be coun
tenanced by the family or Plymouth
people: and a strong feature ofthe
book was to be an account of the scandal
trial left by Beecher himself.
The first ripple of trouble was caused
by a daughter of Deacon Ovington, who
stood by his pastor so stoutly through
out the .scandal. She had kept .1 mass
of quotations from his sermons, and
these she sold under a kind of authen
tic sanction to* the Appletons for hasty
publication. But ibis was no great op
position. Next the enterprising Joseph
Howard, Jr.. son of another Plymouth
deacon, engaged to write a life of J
Beecher in two weeks. By means of
already accumulated material, and rapid
dictation to stenographers, the work was
done within the stipulated time, and
will lie in the market next Monday. Jo;- ]
declined to be turned against the j
scheme, although strong influence was :
brought to bear.
The real surprise, however, has conic
with the news that Rev. S. 15. Ilalliday,
assistant pastor of Plynu u'li church for j
twenty years, has gone into a rival biog- j
raphy scheme. There was a suspicion
of his Intention from the first, because
he avoided the turning over of certain
data needed for the Mark Twain, vol
ume, but certainty has developed only
With an announcement that Ilalliday is
co-author with Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott
in a biography which they mean to get
ready for canvassers ahead of the Twain \
work. This move is backed by one of j
the big Hartford subscription book con
cents. Twain and they will now race j
hard to get out their respective books
first. The controversy has already be- j
come personal and quarrelsome. "Don't
be misled by appeals to your sympathy," |
says Dr. Abbott, in a circular to agents,
"for an impartial history of a man can.
only be written by a person who Is dis
interested. Do no begging for the ben
efit of publishers or anybody else oh ac
count of Mr. Beecher*. family, who are
already well provided for." The feel
ing against Ilalliday' is very strong in
the inner Plymouth circle, and the talk
is that he will have to resign his pas
THE CHICAGO MARKET.
More Chat Regarding the Doings
Of the Clique.
.Special to the filch-*.
CHICAGO, May 14.— N. B. Beam of
fered 250,000 bushels of June wheat at
si; '„ ('**<'> .'4 <", without a taker, at one
moment this morning, when the market
was really so"- 4 c. A moment afterward,
however, tin? clique was buying and the
price was 86& C. This sort of gymnastics
on the part of the quotations is what is
troubling the. wheat crowd and inclining
all the scalpers to pronounce this "the
wickedest deal on record." A dispatch
on the floor early said that there were
orders for the. loading at New York of
enough to clean out within 25,000 bush
els all the wheat now in store there. The
shipments of wheat from Chicago are
larger than those not giving the matter
attention believe. Over 250,000 bushels
went out yesterday, and 18,500 bushels
have gone out this week in five days.
The clearances from the seaboard were
encouraging. More than 300,000 bushels
of wheat went out yesterday from New
York and Baltimore. This insures a
big decrease in the visible supply on
Monday— a decrease that will be apt to
encourage the bulls as much as last
week's figures discouraged them. The
alarm over the holdings of the wheat
clique is now more general than at any
time since it began to be talked of. This
has been largely created by the pur
chases within the past ten days. The
persistent "pegging"' at 80c, even
through the most depressing sort of
news has been another cause of uneasi
ness. It is firmly expected now that next
week the "pegs" will be advanced to
87c, perhaps on Monday, if the "visible"
is of a character to give the bulls cour
age. In the pits there was very little
doing. Wheat did not get near enough
to 80c to require any "pegging." The
buying of the clique house's was conse
quently of a desultory character, prob
ably not for the clique at all, as they are
all big commission firms, with a long
list of clients. The export business was
not very sharp, but that seldom is the
case on Saturday. The business is said
to be largely in the hands of Hebrews,
and in England the Saturday's market
is always an inconsequential one. The
estimates to-day were that the clique
brokers took in not less than 3,000.000
bushels of the June option. Just be
fore the close Rosen eld & Co., one of
the clique houses, began to buy
and kept on till June wheat stood at
87 cents. The. buying was kept up at
this figure and the price closed there.
The "point" is now that this will be the
next "pegging" point. -Thirty boat,
loads of wheat were reported taken in
all at New York and the. estimates now
are for a decrease in wheat of 2,000,000
bushels. Corn was very dull and lower.
The trade is now altogether put into
July and the speculating public, having
been accustomed to 3'.>(«"4()c for June, are
loth to pay 41c just because it is called
the July "option." The shipments of
corn this week were considerably
smaller than the shipments of wheat
and the receipts considerably larger.
Provision Made to Protect the
Dominion Sea Const.
Ottawa, Ont., May 14.— The senate
aroused yesterday from the lethargy so
common to that body and discussed the
matter of coast defenses in case of war. .
It was brought up by Senator Mac Do
nald, who urged that Russia and France
might become embroiled with England
at any hour, in which case Canada
would be attacked, lie thought from
the information in his possession that
ample coast defenses should be pre
pared at once. In the present strained
condition of affairs trouble might come
with the United States. The matter of
defense was one better undertaken in
time of peace than in turmoil of war.
He considered it the . duty of Canada to
place the most exposed -portion, of the
ocean and lake coast both east and
west in a strong defensive position. No
one could say just when an emergency
might arise. Senator Dickey said lie
did not think the government should be
asked to say what they intended to do.
True they had a restless and vigilant
foe anxious to get all the information
possible regarding these matters, and he
considered the matter should be consid
ered as a very delicate private commu
nication. For himself, he knew
thau the people living on the At
lantic coast were about to erect fortifi
cations and place their guns in position,
and. more than that, they.intended to
stand by these guns. The 'government
has decided to expend $00,000 more than
last year in the way of coast defenses,
and will, as well, arrange at an early
day for a large supply of the rifle and
three-pound Nondent'eldt guns, which
will be placed in position along the At
lantic and Pacific, as well as at different
points on the coast. . Only a few (lavs
ago the English government forwarded
three heavy cannons to British Colum
bia, to be stationed at Port Moody, and
several others are to be placed at differ
ent points along the Pacific coast. It is
not at all unlikely that at an early day a
regiment of English soldiers will be dis
patched for regular service in British
Columbia. _ . ;7
Fire at Hammond, Ind.
Chicago. May Shortly before
noon to-day a destructive fire broke out
in Hammond, Ind., caused by a spark
from a passing switch engine failing
into some shavings near the four-story
distillery of M. N. Stowle, which, in
le^s than ten minutes, consumed the
structure. The town has no fire appa
ratus and the flames quickly spread to an
adjoining structure owned by Mr.
Stowle and used as a butterine factory
and a storeroom for machinery; thence
to the lumber yard of William Bros,
near by, aud their entire plant was con
sumed. The flames incidentally licked
up several other buildings, including
the warehouse of John Laws & Son.
Loss, about 81,500. The distillery of
William N. Stowle & Co., estimated
loss, 985,000; insurance, 830,000. The
loss on the butterine factory is about
110,000. Williams Bros, estimate their
loss at $50,000; insurance unknown.
The Michigan Fires.
Makquette, Mich., May 14.— The
fog horn here has . sounded for three
days and three nights continuously, and
is still at it. Dense smoke covers the
shores and lake. The fire are wide
spread, occurring on every quarter of
the peninsula shore. There has been
no wind at all for three days, but to-day
it is blowing very fresh from the
south, and reports or' losses will prob
ably pour in to-night. Several towns
have been saved with difficulty. Forces
of men are lighting the fire all over the
peninsula. Much valuable nine has
been destroyed and a great deal of wood
and railroad ties are not yet delivered.
Everything is terribly dry in the city
and vicinity. There are no fires within
eight miles of Marquette.

JUSTICE WOODS DEAD.
The Eminent Jurist Breathed His
Last at Noon Yesterday.
Washixgtox. May 14.— Justice Will
iam B. Woods, of the supreme court of
the United States, died at his residence
in this city at 12:10 p. m. to-day. . He
was seriously ill in California some
months ago, but improved enough to
enable him to come home. After his
arrival he continued to grow worse. His
disease was dropsy. He suffered in
tensely last night, but in the early
' morning he apparently became insensi
ble to pain, lie was entirely uncon
scious this morning, and the only evi
dence of life visible was his slow res
piration, and his family realized that
the end was near. He passed away
peacefully, without evincing any sigh
of returning consciousness. "It was at
intervals only that he manifested any I
recognition of those around him last i
night. lt is understood to be
the desire of Justice Woods' family j
to have him buried in Ohio, where I
he was born. The funeral ar- j
rangements have not been made.
Justice Woods was born in Newark, (>.,
and after receiving his primary educa
tion, was sent to Yale college, where he |
graduated in ; 1845. Subsequently lie j
studied law and began the practice •of ;
his profession in 1847. Entering the !
political arena as a Democrat, he was
elected in 1857 to the Ohio legislature, j
and made speaker, and was re-elected
one of the same body two years there
after. After the breaking "out of the j
war in 1861, he went into the military
service as lieutenant-colonel of the Sev- !
enty-sixth infantry, serving until the
war closed, when he was made brevet
major-general. He was mustered out
in Alabama, where he remained. He
turning to legal duties . and political
life, he was chosen as state chancellor
for six years, but after serving in this
position for two years was appointed by
President Grant circuit judge of the
United States . for the Fifth district,
which office he held while residing in
Mobile for a number of years. His
promotion to the United States supreme
court took place in 1880.
Shot at a Priest.
ALBANY, N. V., May 14.— While Rev.
Father Looney was hearing confessions
in the cathedral this evening Alice
Craig entered the edifice and, ap
preaching to within about six feet of
the confession box, drew a revolver and
fired three shots at him. One of the
bullets pierced the reverend gentle
man's coat Sleeve and the others sped ;
harmlessly behind him and lodged j
in the wall at his back. The |
would-be murderess was ar
rested, She is undoubtedly Insane.
She labors under the delusion that she
was robbed several years ago by a priest
in Ireland: also that a wealthy English-' ■
