The personal liberty and professional .
reputation of Dr. Thomas J. Pearce are
in the hands of a jury of his peers, as
are also the dignity and majesty of the
law which he is alleged to have offend
ed by committing a criminal operation
on Helen Clayton, causing her death,
just befoie last Christmas. The trial
was concluded and the jury retired to
their consultation room a few minutes
before 5 o'clock last evening. At mid
night no verdict was reached, and, if au
agreement has been reached since then,
will be made public at the meeting of
court at 10 o'clock this morning. The
morning session was taken up yester
day with the introduction of evidence,
but nothing new was adduced. It was
a surprise to many spectators that Dr.
Pearce did not go on the witness stand
in his own defense. The law proh ibits
any comment in the court room on the
fact that the prisoner does not avail
himself of the opportunity to tell his
sideof the story, and nothing was sail
directly by the county attorney on this
subject in his able summing up to the
jury.* The county attorney, how
ever, was very severe in his
reference to the defendant, and
at times addressed himsely direct
ly to Dr. Pearce with extended finger
while hurling strings of the most
sctorchlng invective at him. During
his address the county attorney declared
that he had been unable at any time,
even the present, to know what de
fense was to, be made." lie declared
that the defense had had. a day's rest
after hearing the state's evidence, a
day of peace and quiet with an oppor
tunity to pray for a defendant that
needed praying for. "Now iv summing
up," said the county attorney, "I won
der how in God's name the defense will
explain away the testimony of witnesses
living and dead?".
The county attorney exclaimed, "Who
used this catheter?" and, answering his
own- question, said: "A man who hung
out a shingle and maintained an office
for nine years. We don't know whether
he was doctor, horse doctor or butcher."
Tinning to Dr. Pearce, he said: "Who
has said that it was proper to plunge
this catheter into the body of Helen
Clayton? To take her into an inner
office, lock the door, place her on a
table, deprive her of her senses and
butcher her in the most damnable man
ner. Who will excuse the weak
husband. 1 will not. There may be
mercy enough in heaven to pardon
him tor the crime he consented to and
to forgive the woman who repented on
her death-bed, but what excuse is there
for that man," pointing to the defend
ant? "He did it for a paltry sso, and
sits here with scornful face with no evi
dence of repentance. In an other
jurisdiction he would not be permitted
to live. We have been compelled to sit
here for a week in his presence. I be
lieve he should be sent to solitary con
finement until he shall become repent
ant." The county attorney spoke for
an hour and frequently characterized
the defendant in severe terms.
J. J. McCafferty addressed the. jury
on behalf of the defense for a little over
an hour. lie apologized for being se
lected to make the closing address, and
said lie had hoped that Mr. Brown
would have performed tnat function.
Mr. McCafferty criticised the course of
the county attorney in being so severe
in his denunciations, and then proceed
ed to a discussion to show that the
crime had not been proven. He also re
ferred to Mr. Clayton in strong language
as being an accomplice, whose story
should be disregarded for the reason
that he was a participant in the crime.
Judge Kelly's chaige was a very fair
one and uniloubtea'y a very able one.
Among other things he told the jury
that the story of an accomplice must
not be regarded unless it is supported
by other testimony, but he added that
his refusal to dismiss the case was on
the theory that the story of Stephen
Douglass Clayton had been corroborat
ed, and that however Clayton or his
wife were the evidence of Clayton is
before the jury.. The court also de
clared that it had been clearly proven
that the woman is dead, and her death
was caused by blood poisoning induced
by the abortion. . .

THIRD STREET PAVING.
Figuring on the Cost and Material
— Granite for the Lower End.
At the last meeting of the assembly a
resolution was passed ordering the
board of public works to report a pre
liminary order.as to the cost and neces
sity of repaying Third street. The
matter was discussed in an informal
way at a meeting of the board held
yesterday. As was shown in a recent,
issue of the Globe, the cost of repaying
Third street, from Broadway to Wa
basha street, with cedar blocks laid- in
the same manner as now down, would
be 813,409. or 82.76 per front foot: to the
property owners. With cedar blocks
on a concrete foundation, which is, in
the opinion of the city engineer, much
more desirable from every point ot view,
the cost would be 819,239, or $3.96 per
front foot to property owners.
Granite blocks would cost $24,864, or
$5.04 per front foot to property owners.
The question of paving Third streot
with granite blocks from Broadway to
Kobert street was one of the. phases of
the discussion yesterday. The idea ad
vanced was to use granite between
Broadway, and Robert street and then
repair the balance of the stieet where
needed with the cedar blocks taken
from the street which were good. This,
it was argued, would be a good plan, as
the heavy trucking on the lower Dart of
the street soon spoiled cedar block pave
ment, and the use of grauite would ba

would be saved property owners which,
according to statements made by realty
owners on the street, would be greatly

but it is probable the' reports of the
council will give the figures for this
plan, as well as for the entire repaying

THE HEARTLESS MAID
Has Her Swain Arrested — A Don-
ble-Knded Tale.
William T. Bowman, a waiter by oc
cupation, was arrested yesterday after
noon on a charge of disorderly conduct.
There is, however, more to the charge
than the complaint would indicate, at
least if the story of the complaining
witness is to be relied on. A rather
uninteresting-looking woman, about
twenty-two years old, is May Gemniel,
who swore out the warrant. May at
present lives at 472 Robert street. She
said she had sworn out the warrant
for fear Bowman would do her bodily
harm. 'He had been so persistent
in his attentions that she was obliged to
give up her position as a typewriter in
Cincinnati and go to Chicago. Bow
man followed her to the last-mentioned
city, and she, to escape him, came to St.
Paul about two weeks ago. On Satur
day, says, Bowman met her on the
stieet and followed her to where she
was stopping. Entering the house, he
threatened her life if she would not lis
ten to his tale of love. Becoming
alarmed, she caused his arrest.
Bowman, who is as mild a looking
man as ever carried a "stack of whites"
in a hashery, denies May's story
in each and every particular.
He says she had never been to Cincin
nati, but came to Chicago from Vin
cennes about a year ago, and went to
work in a restaurant "washing dishes.
From there she went to a house on
Indiana avenue as a domestic. He
became acquainted with her at the
restaurant, and has paid her more or
less attention since then. About a week
ago siie wrote him to come to St. Paul,
telling him the city had many advan
tages, and suggesting a "nice little cot"
eouid bo rented very cheap. Bowman,
in proof of his story, shows the letter,
written Feb. 14, and signed Mary Bow
man. About the only thing Bowman
objected to was that he . had "blowed
in" the price of a ticket from Chicago
here only to be locked up. Judge
Twohy will endeavor to adjust the
difficulty this morning.
LOSSES ARK GREATER.
More Nearly Correct Figures
From Sunday's Bis Fire.
The work of rebuilding the Minnesota
Shoe company's building destroyed by
fire Sunday wili be commenced at once.
Yesterday the Taylor-Craig company
had representatives at work on plans
and estimates and the work of rebuild
ing will begin as soon as the insurance is
adjusted. The loss to the shoe company
is estimated at §15,000 on the building
and §75,000 on stock. Ktihles & Stock
estimate their loss at $26,500, of which
amount $24,000 is on the stock, the bal
ance being on fixtures and tools. The
damage to the stock will be total, as all
the cigars and tobacco in. the building
were either wet or spoiled by smoke.
Very fortunate for' the firm the greater
part of the imported tobacco was
in the bonded warehouse. The
employes, 125 in . number, will
have to lay off until the insurance
is adjusted. "Rodgers & Co.", the ma
chinists; estimate their loss at about
$10,000, which is covered by insurance
at the same figure.
The injured firemen, O'Neill and Gill
man, who were taken to St. Joseph's
hospital, are reported as suffering
greatly, and the doctors do not express
any opinion as 'to the result of their
injuries.

Prof. D. L. Kiehle, state superintend

at the capitol as usual yesterday. Prof.
Kiehle has been in attendance at the
annual national meeting of the school
superintendents, of which association
he was elected president, lie is natur
ally highly pleased at the honor, winch
is not, only a personal one, but a
tribute to the standing of Minnesota
and the Northwest in educational cir
cles. While in Boston, too, Prof. Kiehle
addressed the schoolmasters' club of
that city on "The Trend of Education
In the Northwest." Among other ten
dencies he especially noted those to
ward the unification of the course from
the primary class to the university, and
also the divergence of the courses of
study in the sectarian and public
schools, which was gradually taking
them out of the Dale of competition.
lie quoted to good effect in this con
nection the famous utterance of Arch
bishop Ireland at Baltimore:
"The conservatism which is resolved
to be ever safe is dry rot. Let there be
individual action. Layman need not
wait for priest, nor priest for bishop,
nor bishop for pope. The timid move
in crowds, the brave in single hies."
So few members of the Commercial club
responded to the call for the monthly enter-'
tainment last night that it was determined to
postpone the meeting until next Monday
night, when it is expected | the ' blizzard will
have passed, and a good company will be
present.-

William L. Brown, ol Chicago, c has
not relinquished his fight : against. the'
Merritts-. and : the Duluth, xMessabe • &
Northern Railroad company. His defeat
in trie federal court, when Judge Nelson
refused the injunction and dismissed
the bill of complaint, was followed by
the dismissal of the case" in the state
court, according to the statement ot
Col. Stone, of counsel for the Merritts.
It seems that the letting go in the state
court was only for the purpose of get
ting a new grasp, as appears by a bill of ;
complaint filed yesterday, in the clerk's:
office ot the Ramsey county district
court. The new bill is an amended form
of the one filed in the federal court and
has the same object in view, namely," to
enjoin the Merrits and a few others
from voting as directors on stock al
leged to have beeu secured by indirect
means, and also to cancel $06G,66(j iv
bonds and prevent the , sale of new
bonds and stock at an aggregate much
below the par value. The defendants
named in the bill filed yesterday are
the Duluth, Missaba & Northern Rail
way company, K. D. Chase. Edwin N.
Hall, S. R. Payne, W. W. Henry, C. C,
Alfred, A. It., Leonidas, M. B.,"Eliza
beth ML, L. J., Elizabeth E , John E.,T.
A., E. T. and :L. F. Merritt, Albeit S.
Chase and Donald Grant.
The bill alleges that the directors
have made a contract with C. W. Wet
more and others representing the
Rockefeller interest to sell 52,000~,000 in
bonds and .$606,666 in paid up stock for
the aggregate Drice of 81,000,000, payable
as follows: Jan. 5, 1893. $100,000; Jan.
19, $190,000; Feb. 15, March 15, April 15
and May 15, payments of $210,000 each,
and on June 15 of : this year the final
payment of $470,000. It is claimed that
the price agreed': uoou is much below
the real value; that the money received
by the directors is to be used for the
following purposes: To extend the main
line from Artichoke Creek to Duluth,
$397,614; to build approaches to ore docks
in Duluth and to construct viaducts
over streets and tracks of other rail
roads, $200,000; to build ore docks ■at
Duluth," $300,000; to purchase additional
rolling stock now under contract. $000,
--000; to pay bankers' commissions and to
associates, $32,000; to defray branch
and other expenditures heretofore!
made, $70,336. : • ■■■'■• '.' }j
-It is shown that the contract for the
sale of the bonds and stock and the pro
posed mortgage is to be subject to the
approval of C. VV. Wetmore, G. W. Mur
ray and Moses E^Clapp; that the con
tract provides that the railroad com
pany shall form a trust with the asso
ciates enibracingrbesides the railroad,
a majority of the stock of the Mountain
Iron company and, if possible, the lii
wabik Mountain Iron company and the
Missaba Iron company, with a view also
to the protection of tariff contracts al
ready entered into. -Ihe contract also
provides that none 7 of the stocks of
these companies are to be sold until
after the associates have had a chance
to purchase the same on equal terms.
The company also agreed to elect at
once two directors, to be nominated by
the associates in the deal with the rail
road company. .' - ..'--;■
The court is asked to enjoin the direc
tors of the railroad company trom exer
cising the rights of stockholders who
are alleged to have illegally secured
stock and to cancel 1666,666 of stock al
leged to have been illegally secured,
ltis asserted that the following named
persons have secured stock from per
sons who illegally secured the same,
namely: Elizabeth M. Merritt, L.J.

STEALING PUBLIC TIMBER.
Queer Procedure of the Govern-
ment in Appointing Inspectors.
From reliable information it is learned
that developments of a serious nature
have lately come to the surface in con
nection with the management of the ap
praising business of -Indian land pine
timber, etc., which has been carriod on
during" the past year on the White
Earth, Ked Lake and other reservations
in the northern part of the state. Some
time ago the department at Washington
was furnished facts and information
that considerable crookedness was beiug .
practiced by appraisers iv their esti
mates of growing and standing pine
timber on the ceded lands, viz., that all I'
estimates were more or less ui?derestji- io
mated. The result was that the departs
ment immediately discharged from the
service one of the appraisers who had
been conscientious enough to reveal to
the public the dishonorable methods
employed. A short time afterwards the 1
officials of the department, perhaps
fearing the indignation of public cen
sure, for such unjust motives, pro-x
ceeded to instruct the chief in charge of
the appraisers to appoint several special
appraisers, whose duty would be to go.
on the grounds, follow the path of the
formers' appraisers, and re-estimate
and check the work on lands previously
visited and estimated, and to report any
and all crookedness discovered in con
nection with the appraisement, etc.
Recently certain developments cropped
out to 'the surface, revealing the fact
that not only friends, but some very
near relatives of the first appraisers,
had been appointed as specials in the
case, viz., a brother, a son and a son-in
law to some one of the men. ; It now
seems utterly impossible to expect that
anything near a just estimate can be
secured of the land and timber in ques
tion under its present management,
.and the only solution of the matter
would seem to be that ,the coming ad
ministration select an entire new board j
of appr."scr3, as outlined in the agree- j

INDIAN.3 REJOICE
Over What the New Administra-
tion Will Do for Them.
With the coming in of the new ad
ministration a new impetus seems to be
given, and greatly tending to the inter
est of the Minnesota Indians, especially
those residing on the White Earth reser
vation. In addition to the long de
layed sum of §150.000, known as the
reservoir damage fund, which will
shortly be paid them per capita, a large
flouring mill will be constructed for
reservation purposes the coming sum
mer. Arrangements have also been
completed for manufacturing and fur
nishing them some 2,000,000 feet of lum
ber, seed for field and garden crops,
etc. The board of Chippewa Indian
commissioners, operating on the White
Earth reservation, has, at the request
of the Indian department at Washing-,
ton, furnished plans and specifications
for the erection of two dwelling houses,
one each for Chief White Cloud and
May-zhuc-ke-ge-shig. Work on the
buildings will be "commenced in the
early spring.

Building Inspector Gillinan So
Regards the Pending Bill.
Building Inspector Gillman, of Min
neapolis, was in the city yesterday, and
during the afternoon called on Building
Inspector Morris. In speaking of the
bill now before the legislature, creating
a state inspector of elevators, Mr. Gill
man said he had no doubt that it would
be killed. He was of the opinion
the bill was introduced simply to creato
an office for some one to fill. Should
the bill pass it would, he said, simpiy
pave the way for more bills and offices
of the same kind, such as astate plumb
ing inspector and a state building in
spector. The number of passenger ele
vators outside the Twin Cities were less
than one hundred. In the cities, of St.
Paul and Minneapolis • they were in
spected by employes of the building
inspector's office in a careful and satis
factory manner, as was .shown by the
annual reports and demonstrated by the
few accidents which occurred. He had
been promised by .the Hennepin delega
-1 tion that the bill would be opposed by.
them in the house.
OUTSIDE THE PIER.
There Is Where Manufacturers
Want the West Side Track.
1 At yesterday's meeting of the West
St. Paul Manufacturers' association a
resolution was passed requesting that
the city council, in allowing the Fifth
'Ward Railway Transfer company the
, privilege of constructing a railway
' across the river, stipulate in the ordi
nance that the tracks must be con-
I structed outside of the Kansas City Rail
road company's pier for the reason
: that in case it is built inside some of
r the buildings used -by the munufact
urers would have to be torn down to
make room for the ; road. The resolu
tion will be presented to the council at
its next meeting. Those present at
yesterday's meeting were Messrs. Dorn,
Villaume, Baker, Lee. Cameron, Grant,
Warner, Crosby, Wood,- Deslauriers,
Wardell and Walterstoff, representing
establishments employing over 1,000
hands. Mr. Walterstoff, of Walterstoff,
HasKell &, Co., was elected to member
ship. p --. -
WOUND UP WRONG.
The Last Park Board Meeting
Fizzles.
Messrs. Aberle and Bredenhagen
shoveled their way to the city hall last
night to attend a meeting of the park
boaxd. The other members, however,
tailed to show up, and a3 it took three
members for a quorum, the meeting
was not held. Messrs. Horton and
Petsch retire on March 1, or as soon as
their successors are appointed aud
qualified, and. the meeting last night
was called with the idea of clearing up
matters and leaving things in order for
the new board. The mayor has as yet
given no intimation as to who the two
new members of the board will be, but
will probably announce his selections
tomorrow. --:pf/.p-.
Choral Association Concert.
The sale of tickets for the St. Paul
Choral association concert Thursday
opened . at Dyer's yesterday morning,
and the prospects are . excellent for a
large house. The works given will be
heard- for the first time in the North
west, though both ,are well-known
classics. The "Judas Maccabaeus" is
written in Handel's best style, and con
tains many of his most popular airs and
choruses. The selections given are
those arranged by Mr. Tomlins for the
world's fair festival in June. The orig
inal orchestration of Handel is far too
meager. for a modern performance". The.
additions in the chorus numbers have
been made by Vincent Novello, and in
the. arias Mr. Baldwin has carefully
made whatever additions were neces
sary for a proper performance. The
first part of "St. Paul,'.' which forms
,the second half of the programme, may
be classed among Mendelssohn's great
est works. Altogether, the programme
is in keeping with the high reputation
of the choral association.

$1.25 DRESS GOODS
FOR 69 CENTS.
Yesterday's blizzard was
a little too much for us. The
Dress Goods department
was full of buyers in the
morning in spite" of the
storm. Had the day been
pleasant the entire lot would
have been closed out long
before the store closed. As
it is, about 35 or .40 part
pieces remain (just about
half the original lot). f These
will be sold today at
69 Cents
a yard. •
These Dress Goods are
strictly all-wool, full 52 inch
es wide, and the original
prices were $1, $1.25 and
even $1.50 a yard. They

Cheney Bros.' best Print
ed China Silks are sold in
St. Paul, in Minneapolis, in
Chicago, in New York —
everywhere, for one dollar
a yard. We sell them for.
75 Cents
a yard. They are full 24
inches ide, and the styles
are the newest that are pro
duced. Now, that's a good
thing for comparison. Ail
you have to do is to ask the
price of Cheney Bros.' best
qualities in styles for '93
anywhere in this country to
be convinced that we are
the leaders in low prices.
True, you. may once in a
while see a lower price in
the papers than ours. What
about the quality? A price
that is not backed up by
quality amounts to nothing.
For greatest beauty of
style and wearing qualities,
however, we recommend our
Printed India Twilled Silks.
We don't believe a silk to
equal them was ever made.
Our styles are exclusive and
we know they are the best
to be found anywhere. Price,
$1.00 a yard; more than
1 25. patterns to choose from.
