Unconditional Repeal of the

BY THE BIG VOTE OF 43 TO 32.

CATTLES EVER EXPERIENCED.
■Washington, Oct. 30.— At 7:20 p. m.'
by a vote of 43t0 82, the senate.alter one
of the most remarkable and memorable
parliamentary battles of a generation,
passed the bill unconditionally repeal

The end was reached at the con

teen days, after sixty-one days of de
date, during which tive volumes of the
Congressional Record had been tilled

The closing day of the great struggle
for the repeal of the purchase of silver
was one of intense excitement. The
galleries were packed to the doors.every

the walls were lined with representa

Senator Morgan fairly heaped his
denunciation on Senator Voorhees, the
leader of the administration forces; and
Senator Wolcott, the Colorado Hotspur,
concluded a fierce phillippic against
Senator Carey with the Spanish pro
vi-rb that it was a waste of lather to
shave an ass.
The silver Republicans, Teller, Stew
rut, Dubois, Wolcott and Jones; Peffer,
the Populist, and Morgan and the old
war governor of Tennessee, Harris, each
made his valedictory.
The Democrats were hot and angry nt
the desertion of some of their colleagues
that made their defeat possible; tlte
Populists warned the senate that the
doom of silver was the doom of the old
parties, but there, was something trag
ically pathetic in the despairing cry of
the silver senators.
It meant, they said, ruin and destruc
tion and desolation to the silver-pio
Senator Jones, with an emphasis that
will never be forgottou by those who
heard him, warned those about him
that the end of the fight marked but the
beginning of the battle that would be
waged before the people.
In tones deep and tragic he repeated
Dundee's famous defiance of Gordon:
"There be hills beyond Pent land.
And friths beyond Forth.
If there be lords in the Lowlands,
There be chiefs in me North.'
Senator Stewart had the last wont.
When tlse white-bearded Navadiau,
looking like au ancient patriarch, sank

The decisive moment had come.

and .solemnly, "the clerk will call the

The suspense was over.
The Utibicon had been passed.
The roll was at last being called on the
final passage of the bill.
From -til over the chamber came a
bik' l of relief.
Mr. Bland, the silver champion of the
house, stood like a statue behind the
row of deslzs while the roll was called.

each other bolt upright, did not move a

Mr. Mills and Mr. Cockrell paced Im
patiently up and down in front of the
vice president's chair.
Mr. Hill sat in the front row talking
to his late antagonist, Mr. Butler. It
took aiiuost ten minutes to call the roll,
and arrmge the pairs.
When the vice president announced
the vote Mr. Voorliees straightened up
to his full length. It was a personal vic
tory for bun.
"1 now move," said he, with a note of
triumph in his voice, "that the senate
adjourn until tomorrow at 12 o'clock."
Before the question could be put the
occupants of the galleries were jostling
each other in their attempts to crowd
out of the doors.
The senators fled from the chamber.

position, saying he would vote for un

Bghtifor that metal.
Air. Cameron, (.ttep., Fa.) then read a
Daily ST.Paul Globe
statement as to his position and views
on the repeal bill.
It was as follows:
'•Neither side of the senate has made
a suggestion which, in my opinion, has
been broad enough, and therefore 1
have studiously avoided woting for or
against the amendments proposed.
There can be but one solution:
"Free coinage of tlieAtneriean product
of silver is essential to our prosperity.
The senate cannot with self-respect
pass such a measure as this. Look for
a moment at the arguments put forward
in support of repeal. One of the most
forcible is that it would oblige Europe
to enter into an agreement with us to
return to the use of
BtLX EB AS MOXF.Y.
"That is to say. we intend to cut our
American market for silver in order to
throw fifty million ounces a year on the
European market, in addition to what
wt? already sell, in the hope of breaking
down the market price. We have a def
icit of several millions a month. If we
manage to keep fifty millions of gold in
the treasury we shall do well. We are
wasting our silver and our gold and our
credit, and we call remonstrance fac
"In the hope of inducing the majority
id deal witn the subject in a broader
spirit, I may ask the senate to vote on
the proposition which I have already
offered in debate, or 1 would prefer that
this bill be referred to a select commit
tee of seven or more members, with in
structions to report on the further
measures which may be required to pro
vide for carrying saiely into effect me
object of ttie proposed legislation us
proposed some tiu.e since by the sena
tor from Alabama (Mr. Morgan)."
Mr. Morgan tuen addressed the sen
ate. The situation in,the senate seemed
to him to be very lamentable — one of
which he could speak only with pain,
and which he could contemplate only
with serious apprehensions for the
WELFABE OF THE COt.'XTliY.
Mr. Morgan said the passage of the
bill would b* an irrevocable surrender
to the demands of the most insolent
and overbearing corporations.
Mr. Morgan tueu read slowly and with
great emphasis these sentences from
Mr. (ioiimurs speech of Saturday:
"We were compelled to take the
terms offered by the senator from Ohio.
He held the key of the situation. You
nave nictated terms to us."
"I thank Almighty God," said Mr.
Morgan, impressively, "that the sena
tor from Oliiohas never had the power
to dictate terms to me as a Democrat.
He may have dictated them to tlie pres
ident, to the. committee, to the minority
of the Democrats on this side, but he
cannot dictate to me."
Again quoting Mr. Gorman's speech,
Mr. Mergan read a sentence as to Mr.
Sherman laying down the conditions.
"tie laying down a condition to De
mocracy." said Mr. Morgan, contemptu
ously: "What is the Democratic party
wortu to itself or to the country or to
posterity when the senator from Ohio
has the key to the situation and can lay
down conditions to it? Wiiat is your
majority here worth (addressing the
Democratic senators), thus trilled with,
thus deceived, thus overrun and finally
handeu over to the tender mercies of
the senator from Ohio?"
Mr. Morgan said he had signed the
proposed compromise, and had done so
in order to have peace and fraternity in

"Commit suicide/ said Mr. Morgan,
with much bitterness, "because you
cannot get a chance to live on fair and

Mr. Morgan, continuing, said, among
other things: "If a presidential policy
was to be worked out through a rag
held in hand through the veto power,
such assumed power would soon so ex

the people would break off from such a
Compromise was scouted as an un
worthy condescension. This was as
liars!) a pill as an), and unworthy treat
meift— all the more painful because the
political enemies of decency were will
ing to become instruments of its coer
cion. In that rod an 1 that staff Demo
cratic senators could get no comfort. If
he had told the people of Alabama that
the hist ell'orts of Cleveland if elected
president would be to put silver in a
position from which there was no possi
bility of extrication, that it was to die
in the senate at the hands of its friends,
or in the house by his command, that
state, at least, would never have cast its
vote lor him. "And 1 told him so in a
friendly and cordial manner," he added.
Mr. Morgan concluded liis written re
marKs at 2:40. He left the subject, he
said, with the knowledge that the die
was cast. The senate, the house and
the president had determined that
the pending measure should prevail.
There is nothing now to look to, so far
as he could see, but some vague prom
ises made in the senate which were en
tirely incapable of qeing realized.
Mr. Vest (Dem., Mo.) followed Mr.
Morgan. He expressed his sympathy
with the people of the silver states, and
NO CZAR OR KAISER
would desoiate an insurrectionary prov
ince as congress was aoout to desolate
the silver states of the West. He ar
eued that the seignorage in the treasury
should be coined, and ridiculed the busi
ness method which would allow this
.vast sum of 153,000,000 to lie idle in the
treasury and seil bonds to secure gold.
Mr. Cockrell (Dem., Mo.) argued. that
at the last election the tariff question
and not the linaaeial question had been
pressed to the front; the Democratic
party secured a victory. Leading Dem
ocrats had expected that if there was to
be an extra session it would be called to
reform the tariff, but now the election
was over tariff was lost sight of and the

MrT Cockrell reviewed the history of
the repeal bill in the house and the sen
ate, showing that it was reported to the
senate by two Democrats. Messrs. Voor

cans, Messrs. Allison, Aldrich, Aiorrlll

OATHS OF ANTI-GATHOLICS

IN MICHIGAN POLITICS.
WANTED IT READ IN HOUSE.
The American Protective Asso
ciation and Its Work Against
the Hotnan Catholic Chureh-r-
Denunciation for the Pope
and His Priests — What Caused
a Congressman's Defeat.
Wasjiixgtox.Oci. 30.— The memorial
which Mr. Weadock wanted to read in
the house this morninK comes from Mr.
Youmans, a member of the last house
from the Eighth Michigan district, who
was defeated by William K. Linton.
It declares that Mr. Linton and his
supporters represented that Youinaus
was a Roman Catholic.and that the pope
controlled his vote while he was in con
gress. The American Protective asso
ciation, a copy or whose oaths accom
panied the memorial, binds its members
to do everything in tneir power to over
throw the Roman Cathoiic church and
Us followers. It is declared that owing
to the purchase of arms by the American
Protective association the Saginaw dis
trict has been terrorized, and that many
persons were frightened into voting for
Exhibits of letters and cireulaos sent
out by ofticers of the A. P. A. are at
tached to the memorial. They all
breathe the same hostility to Koman
Catholics and call upon "all true and
loyal Protestants" to vote for Linton.
The alleged oaths of the American
Protective association which accom
pany the memorial presented in tlie
house this afternoon by Mr. Weadock
are very binding on those taking them.
No. 1 is a secretive oath in which the
candidate declares his honesty of pur
pose, and in which he asserts that he is
not the spy of any theological institu
tion, and more especially tte Catholic
church. No. 2 asserts the candidate's
intention to deal justiy with his fellow
No. 3 (taken on a dagger) prohibits
the candidate from divulging what takes
piace in the order, commits him to the
support of the United States govern
ment, makes it obligatory to keep the
church and state separate, renounces
all foreign powers, tempoial or ecclesi
astical, and asserts that he will take up
arms it need be to defend the principles
of his faith there set forth.
In No. 4 the candidate swears ho
will make warfare against ignorance
and fanaticism and will use his utmost
power "to strike tli«-* shackles and chains
of blind obedience to the Roman Cath
olic church from the hampered and
burdened conscience of a priest-ridden
and church-oppressed people."
That he will promote interests of
Protestants everywhere, will not employ
a Roman Catholic if he can secure the
services of a Protestant; that he will
not aid the Catholic church, but will do
all in his power to retard and break
down the power of the pope; thai he
will nut enter into an agreement with
Catholics for a strike where Protestants
might be displaced and Catholics em
ployed. The closing part of this oath is
political, and is as follows: "1 further
more promise and swear that I will not
countenance the nomination in any
caucus or convention of a Komau Catn
olic for any office in the gift of the
American people, and 1 will vote only
lor a Protestant; should there be two
Catholics for the same office 1 will erase
the name from the ticket. I vote that 1
will at all times endeavor to place po
litical positions in the hands of Protest
ants to the entire exclusion of Koman
Catholic churches or the members
thereof, and the mandate of the pope. 1 '
Oath No. 5 is as follows: "thereby
denounce Roman Catholicism. I hereby
denounce the pope, sitting at Kome or
elsewhere. 1 denounce his priests and
emissaries and the diabolical work of
the Ronun Catholic church and its
pope. Amen, amen, amen."
In No. 0 the candidate swears that lie
will use ill endeavors to keep Koinan
Catholics out of olllce; oppose all efforts
of Catholics to obtain control of public
schools, and will hold these principles
above party affiliations, and will (live a
brother of the order preference in all
matters of business and also with his

afternoon at the University athletic
The score was 1G to 0. It was the first

There was good individual work by the
Northwestern, but it availed nothing
against the scientific team same of the
visitors. The Northwestern won the

early. Within three minutes C. Larson '

Minnesota opened the second half with
a flying-wedge play. The Northwest

Two weeks ago last night the billiard
tournament at the Hotel Metropolitan
begun, in which Foley, Thayer, Clougli
and Charles Capen, of St. Paul, and
Frank Doherty, of Minneapolis, took
part. In the tourney Capen won three
games, dough two, Foley two, Thayer
four. Last night Thayer defeated
Capen in a 300-point game. 300 to 201.
Last night's game consisted of seventy
seven innings. Thayer's highest runs
were 14, 17, 16. 32, 17. 11, 18, 10. 16, 16.
Capens's highest runs were 11. 14, 10.
This evening a banquet will be eiven
to the contestants ami the newspaper
men at the Metropolitan cafe. From
what was learned last night it is certain
that the menu will eclipse any thing that
has heretofore been attempted in this
neck of the woods. The abilities of T.
A. Barker in this direction are so well
known that it is safe to assume that
those who sit down to this spread will
find It decidedly "swell."
As last night was the final game in
the tourney, it is of interest to kuow
how the prizes were apportioned. The
first prize, 835 in cash, was awarded to
Frank Thayer. of St. Paul; second
prize, §15, was won by Charles Capen,
Minneapolis; third prize, a box of 100
cigars and a jointed billiard cue; fourth
and lifth prizes, a jointed cue in each
case. Joseph Webber, of St. Paul,
acted as referee through the entire
tourney, and gave perfect satisfaction
to all concerned.
For the present, at least, the amateur
championship may be considered as
settled. Frank Thayer now stands as
amateur champion of Minnesota. How
ever, Henry Sampson, of St. I'aul, will
challenge Thayer for a match game at a
time to be agreed on. Cot. John T.
West, of the West hotel, Minneapolis,
has offered to donate ?100 in money in
addition to the other prizes in tins game
to be open to all amateur bilhardists of
the state. The game will coineofT under
the auspices of Charles Capen, manager
of the West hotel billiard hall. It is
probable that this game will come off
inside of two week?.
Receipts and Expenditures of the
CniCAGo, Oct. 30.— When Chairman
Peck, of the finance committee, figured
up with Treasurer Seeberger today he
found the exposition had just 52.515.000
in the banK and in the souvenir cciv
fund. Estimating the receipts at $150,
--000 more than the cost of administration
for the day, the balance on hand at
midnight Oct 30 was nearly $2,750,000.
Of this sum nearly ?l,500,000"is in souve
nir coins, counted at their face value of
50 cents each.
The total revenue from concessions
lor the six months was in the neighbor
hood of £3.750,000, from which deduc
tions were allowed amounting to about
$250,000 for improvements paid for by
the concessionaires. Receipts from ad
missions and minor sources aggregate
about $10,500,000, not including salvage.
Altogether the treasury has received
over §14,000.000 since the first day from
gate receipts, concessions and inci
dental sources of revenue.
Against the income from all sources.
Including £4.500,000 of bonds and ?5,500,- ;
000 of stock, there has been a charge of
119.000,000 for construction, and the" op-'

$7,000,000. Up to and including the

and His Last Interview.
FUNERAL OF THE LATE MAYOR.
Chicago. Oct. 30.— The official life of
the world's fair has ended. This even
ing was to have been one of gaiety and
dazzling brilliancy, but the death of
Mayor Harrison changed all that. The
meeting at Festival hall during the aft
ernoon was brief. The audience was
detained just long enough to hear an
earnest prayer by Rev. Mr. Barrows, a
few explanatory remarks regarding the
change of programme by President
Palmer, the reading of an appropriate
speech by President Higinbothan and
the resolutions of sympathy concerning
Carter Harrison's untimely end. These
resolutions were read by EL N. Higin

clear, tirm voice, which crew husky and

Mr. Barrows announced that he had
been requested by the committee to read
the speech President lliirinbotham had
written for this day prior to
R Jilt. HARRISON'S DEMISE.
The speech was as follows:
"This is nut the time for oratory. A
.duty calls us together which we must
perform, though it tills us with sadness.
The hour is at hand when our festival
must close, and when the material
things of which it is composed must turn
back to the four quarters of the globe,

"This Is not the time for exultation
over our victory, except in so far as to
recognize that without the favor of the
God that guided the frail craft of the
voyager 400 years ago to this land it
could not have been achieved. Exulta
tion would be undignified. Gratitude
to the Almighty is the only feeling
that I can harbor in my breast, except
the sorrow which this closing hour
evokes. We are turning our backs
upon the fairest dream of civilization,
and we are -about to consign it to the
dust. It is like the death of n dear
friend. It is like bidding farewell to
one's youth. It is like all those times
in the life of a man when the thoughts
of the present are choked with the emo
tions .of the past. At such times the
call of duty alone can uplift the heart
afid arouse it to meet the things that
are yet to come. That call is upon each
one of us now. It echoes in the hearts
ot all who have been touched by these
wonders which God has brought to pass.

selves and our children. It bids us ap

Resolutions Passed at the Morn
Chicago, Oct. 30.— City officials and
aldermen who entered the council
chamber for the special meeting this
mornin? found .that the decorator, with
somber designs, had preceded them.and
their eyes met the mournful insignia of
death at the first glance.
The mayor's chair, from which his
bright glances and sallies have flashed,
was heavily hung with deep black. The
bright red cherry furniture being en

folds ot crape. The desk, too, on which
his gavel has fallen more than once
with heavy force, but always with grand
good nature behind it. was hidden be
neath the somber hues of death. Across
the wall above the desk ana chair a
deep friiig of black hung down over the
speaker's platform. The galleries were

George 13. Swift (Rep.) presided. Keso
lutions, offered by Aid. liyan, were
adopted by a risintc vote.
Aid. Ryan then sent up to the cierk
his resolution. The resolutions, which
were not unduly lengthy, provide for a
memorial meeting of the council, and
conclude as follows:
"Resolved, That all civic and mili
tary organizations in the city are hereby
invited to attend the funeral of him who
was 'first in the hearts' of the citizens of
Chicago, and that, as a mark of respect
to the great mayor, the city offices shall

Aid. Powers moved that it be the
sense of the council that all the citizens
of the city be asked to participate in the
obsequies which are to come.
"Tne citizens of Chicago will act
spontaneously," said the chair. "The
late mayor was loved and endeared to
all the Deople of Chicago. The manner
of his death is such as to prompt all
citizens to become a part of the mourn

of the council chamber.
THE ASSASSIN IN JAIL.
He Refuses to Be Interviewed
Further on the Killing.
Chicago, Oct. 30.— Mayor Harrison's
murderer, Prendergast, spent a quiet
night in his cell in the county jail. He
slept soundly from midnight until Ga.
in. in Anarchist Louis . Lingg's old cell.
This is the first corridor of the main
floor of the cell rooms. It faces the
main entrance from the big cage lead
ing off the office, and a guard ie on duty
there day and night the year round.
No special euard was put on last night.
Everything by which Prendergast could
injure himself or commit suicide was
taken from him when he was placed in
the cell. The regular corridor guards
watched him closely during the night.
The man was apparently worn out by
the excitement of the previous twenty
four hours. This morning the clanging
of bolts and bars as the turnkeys passed
through the jail awoke the prisoner.
Prendergast yawned lazily and sat on
the edge of his narrow bed pearing
gloomily out of his cell. When spoken
to by one of the guards he grunted an
unintelligible reply, but did not move a
muscle. When the man's breakfast was
brought to him, however, he brightened
up at once. He was hungry and ate the
plain prison fare with a relish, drinking
a large quantity of hot coffee. After the
meal Prendergast seemed in a more
agreeable mood. He moved up to his
cell door and gazed out. The jibes and
jokes exchanged by other prisioners.
who talked to each other from adjoining
cells, interested the assassin. Ho smiled
as repartee and pungent sarcasm floated
in the air from cell to cell. The situa
tion'and noise were new toPrendeigast,
and he sat a silent but attentive listen
er. When a reporter called the mur
derer looked up suddenly. "Well, Pen
dergast, how are you feeling this morn
ing?" "Wot?" replied Prendergast look
ing at tr-.e visitor curiously. "Oh, I feel
all right, I guess. I'm all right."
"Had a good night's rest, did you?"
"Yes, I guess so. 1 always sleep all
At this point Prendergast became
silent, and leaning half back on his bed
partly closed his eyes. All efforts to
gradually lead the man into a conversa
tion about the assassination tailed. He
sat doggedly silent. Finally straight
ening up, he said:
"Say. wot's the use of talking about
the same thing all the time? I've talked
about the shooting all I'm goin' to.
"He deceived me, and I shot him. He
betrayed me, and 1 got even with him.
That's all. I was justified." .

ANOTHER MANIAC'S DEED.
FREDERICK MATTHIES, OF NEW YORK
CHY, SHOT DOWN.
BARE ESCAPE FRO.TI LYNCHING
The Victim Was Superintendent
of the New Postal Telegraph
Building —Kd Gould's En
counter With a Crank Who
Demands $5,000 —He Is
New York, Oct. 30.— At 3:30 o'clock
this afternoon a crazy man, emulating
the example of the man who Saturday
night shot down and killed Mayor Har
rison, of Chicago, fired two shots from a
six-barreled revolver into the stomach
ot a man who he in his insanity Im
agined had done him a wrong. The
man who was shot \\ as Frederick Mat
thies. The man who did the shooting
is said to be named Thomas Bradley.
Mattliies is superintendent of construc
tion of the new Postal Telegraph build
ing, .Broadway. But for the fact that
ten policemen of the Broadway squad,
with their billies and batons, defended
the prostrate, bleeding and mangled
and shrieking form of the v would-be
murderer, an infuriated mob of over
1,500 men, armed with sticks, clubs and
stones, would have lynched the fellow.
The police had all they could do to keep
the struggling crowd back. As it was,
many a head was cracked by the police
in their struggles to get the crazy
man through the crowd. The police
cleared the place and marched into the
basement. Behind the pile of cornice
in the northeast corner lay the man who
had attempted to murder Superintend
ent Matthies. The police were behind
the pile of cornice which had been
thrown up as works. The man
had hidden himself behind a pile three
feet high and about ten feet deep. The
man was crouching very low down, and
in one hand he held a pistol already
cocked. To acare the man out the po
lice opened fire, and about twenty shots
were tired. The man did not come out
at the first volley, but when a police
man got on toD of the pile while the
others were attracting the man's atten
tion and pointed a pistol at him already
cocked and told him that unless he
came out in three minutes he would be
a dead man, the man threw up his
hands. The policeman took out his
watch ana called out at the end of one
minute, then at the end of the second
minute there was heard an ominous
clicking as every policeman in the
crowd cocked his revolver. The man
started out with all haste.
Policeman Dan Giltespie made a rush
at the man about ten feet before he got
to the exit on Broadway, and hit him
on the head with his stick. The man,
shrieking and crying, striking out right
and left with his fists, was felled to the
.ground, and half a dozen policemen fell
on top of him. It required three min
utes steady clubbing to subdue the
man, who struggled like a wildcat.
Then ensued another wild rush, and the
crowd tried to get at the ir.an to lynch
him. The policemen had the greatest
difficulty in getting the man through
the crowd to the station house.
From witnesses or the shooting, tho
men who had been working at the
place all day long, it was learned that
the man had been loafing around the
building all day. He had been .hiding
Dehind piles of brick, and saying that
he policemen and the superintendent
were after him trying to murder him
for stealing $500.
The men paid no attention to him.
At 3:30 o'clock the man came from be
hind a pole, and, deliberately step Ding
up to the superintendent.fired two shots
into his stomach. Then waving his
umbrella and yelling for the men to
keep back, he took refuge behind a pile
of bricks. The man was locked up in |
the city hall police station last night as
a suspicious character. He told a story
about the policeman trying to murder
him for 5500 he had stolen. Matthews
is in a critical condition, aud will prob
ably die before morning.
A. Crank "Wants $5,000 or a Tip
on the Market.
New York, Oct. 30.— Edwin Gould,
second son of the late Jay Gould, and
co-heir of the latter's millions, had his
first startling experience with the genus
crank this afternoon.
Mr. Gould was sitting In his private
office in the Western Union building at
2 o'clock, when he was disturbed by the
sudden entrance of a stranger. As he
looked up from his desk he saw a slight,
under-sized man, shabbily but neatly
dressed, with pale face and small black
mustache. The gleam in the man's eye
told Mr. Gould that he had a crank to
deal with, even before the fellow spoke.
The crank walked steadily towards
Mr. Gould and when he got close to
him, said in a threatening manner,
"Give me that $3,000, and give it to me
quick, or give me the tip bu the mar
"Sit down just a minute," said Mr.
Gould, "until I get the money out of the
safe." The crank sat down, and Mr.
Gould stepped to a side door. He
opened the door and out walked De
tective William Clark, of the central
office. "Come with me and we'll get
the money," said the detective. The
crank bowed his head and walked out
of the office with the detective.
In the hall Clark put the handcuffs on
the wild-eyed young man, and half an
hour later he was at police headquarters
i? Mr. Gould had been prepared for his
crank visitor by one of his clerks. A I
week ago the young man went into the
office and asked the clerk if Mr. Gould
was in. Beiug told that he was out of
the city, the man said he had nothing to
do and would call again.
His next call was at noon today. Mr.
Gould was expected in at 1 o'clock, so
the crank said: "Tell Mr. Gould I will
be here at 2 o'clock. I want a tip on the
market, If he don't want to give me
that he can give me 85,000."
At police headquarters the crank said
his name was Mongolia Andrews, and
that he is 34 years old, His object in
going to Mr. Gould was to be repaid
65,000 which he had lost in liosedale,
Kan., while working on a railroad in
the Gould system. .
When searched there was found a
note in Andrews' pocKet addressed to
Edwin Gould, which reads:
"When wilt W. U. go up to 100? 1
want to get a small smash at bucket
shops. Please answer. Andrews."
There was also a notebook contain- I
ing a list of names, beginning "Vander
bilt, Oliver - Ames, Depew, Astor,
Bliss." Beside each name was a letter
which corresponded to a scale ot
amounts in another part of the book,
and showed how much each one whose
name was mentioned was worth. The
police think Andrews is insane.
. At Gould's office the belief is that he
is only an unfortunate man who thought
i Mr. Gould had money to give away.

THE STRIKE DECLARED OFF
THE UNION SO DECIDED AT LAST
THE UNION MAY DISBAND.
After a Long Parley at Labor
Hall It Was Voted to Declare
the Strike Off— 5O Dis
charged Men Did Not Force
Their Cause— Citizens Will
See Mr. Liowry— Heild Talks.
The street car strike has been de
clared off by the union, and all the men
that can get back to work have been
advised by the union to accept the terms
of the company aud get their old posi
tions if they can. About 250 street car
men were in session last night unti
after midnight. There were pres
ent a number of members of
the trades and labor assembly,
notably the committee appointed at the
end of the mass meeting at Labor hall
Sunday : fteruoon. This committee
from the trades assembly reported to
the union that a conference had been
held with Mr. Lowry, and he stated
that the company would take back any
of the 247 men in St. Paul to whom cir
culars had been issued notifying them
that they were in good standing, but ha
absolutely refused to take back any of
the 56 who had bean discharged.
A vote was then taken -by the union
on the motion to declare the strike off.
The fifty-six discharged men stated
that they did not want the other men
to hold out for their sakes, and then
refrained from voting on the motion to
declare the strike off. The officers of
the union advised the men to go back
to work, and the motion carried,
it was said that two prominent
ciitzens of the city would go to see Mr.
Lowry today and ask him to take back
all of the men except the fifty-six dis
charged ones. These men will report
to a meeting to be held this afternoon at
Labor hall as to what success they may
have at securing promises to take all of
the 247 back.
One of the officers of the union was
asked if this is to be the end of the
union, and he said that the regular
meeting for Saturday night.still stands,
and it remains to be seen whether the
organization will be preserved, but ha
believed the union is dead.
A number of the fifty-six were dis
cussing the matter while the meeting
was in progress, and they in some
instances expressed the wish that they
had never joined the union. Some of
them, however, weakly defended their
action and declared that they would go
elsewhere to work, and would i>till
stand up for organization.
ALL THH LINES MOVING.
Ninety of the .Strikers Have Re«
turned to Work.
All the street railway lines were In
full operation yesterday. General
Manager Heild said last evening that
the strikers who are not among the dis
charged list have been coming in for
three days seeking to be reinstated, and
he has accepted every one or .them.
Saturday quite a number came back.
Sunday nearly fifty of them came back,
aud yesterday about a dozen walked
into the office and secured the return of
"We shall not discharge any new men
we now employ to admit strikers," said
Mr. Heild. "The strikers will be taken
back simply to fill . vacancies. When
our quota is full ther9 will be no further
room for the return of strikers, and
those who have not improved the oppor
tunity to come back before the list is
full must staj out; or, at least, stay out
to await vacancies, which may arise
later on. We have enough men to keep
all our lines moving at nearly schedule
tune, but the men are at present re
i quired to work a little overtime. We
shall very soon have our full quota oC
men, and then overtime working will
come to an end.
"Today parties whom we believe to
be strikers have caused some annoyance
on the Seventh street line, near Tus
carora avenue, by cutting trolley ropes,
letting the trolley fly up and break. A
number of other petty capers like that
have been cut. But no very serious
damage has been done. The mischief
seems to be the woric of only a few of
the strikers. The great mass of the
strikers are evidently not bent on de
struction. • We should be glad to take
back as many as possible of our ola ac
ceptable men, but those who hang out
too long must, by force of circum
stances, remain out. We have taken
back about ninety of the old men, and
there is still a little room for more of
them. It must be distinctly understood
that no new man employed will be dis<
charged so long as his work is satisfac

men think this is still a promising field
for them to work in. And within the
