MOVE TO OUST JACKSON.
KENNETH CLARK TO GO ON THE FiRE
IN PLACE OF PRENOERGAST.
Said to Bo a Movement of the
Mayor to Oust Chief Jackson
Because of His Part in the
Kummis With a Policeman
Last Fourth of July— Black
May Succeed Jackson.
Kenneth Clark has been selected by
Mayor VV r right to succeed J. C. Prender
gast as member of the board of fire
commissioners, and by this selection the
resignations of Commibsioners Martin
and Still well have been averted. It
was talked about at one time that the
mayor would reappoint Prendergast,
but as botn Martin and Stillwell threat
ened to resign if Prendergast sneceeded
himself the mayor weakened aud threw
Prendergast overboard. There were
several candidates for the position
which the mayor promised to consider,
but the aentlaman who is credited with
shaping the policy of the administration
and also writing the veto messages In
timated who he desired appointed and
his selection was duly endorsed. The
new commissioner is well known iv
business circles, having been for a
number of years a member of the firm
of De Coster & Clark and now being
vice president of the Capital bank. He
secured a place on the Citizens ticket
as a candidate for county commissioner
in ISD2 and received 411 votes in the
It is" said by those who think they
know a thing or two that the appoint
ment of Mr. Clark is another step
toward the placing of ex-Chief John T.
Black again at the head of the depart
ment. In July last charges were made
by the mayor against Chief Jackson and
Assistant Chief Cook. The charges
grew out of some trou-ble at fire head
quarters on the night of July 4, a mem
ber of the police force attempting to ar
rest one of the liremen for placing tor
pedoes on the track in front of the en
gine house. The prisoner was taken
away from the officer by Assistant Chief
Cook and others, and it was alleged that
Chief Jackson used improper
lauguage to the officer. The may
or, after an investigation, submitted
the ciiarges and evidence to
the fire board; but by a vote of three to
two the board decided the oftense was
not of sufficient importance to cause the
removal of any of the offenders. It is
also claimed that as soon as Mr. Clark
has taken his seat as a member of the
board the charges will be reconsidered
aud some action taken. There are some
who prophesy that Chief Jackson will
be removed, and Assistant Chief Cook
placed in charge of the department
until the election of a new chief Iv
April, 1895. Commissioner Martin, who
is now in Chicago investigating a new
system of lire alarm machinery, which
is to be placed iv the department at a
cost of 55.000, is credited with havine
charge of the plan to oust Jackson and
put Black in.

Moving to North Dakota by Hun
.^i/> dreds for Homes. . ...
Max Bass, immigration agent of the
Great Northern road, left for Pennsyl
vania last evening in company with
some people who have been looking
over the Turtle mountain country with
a view to settlement in that region.
They are representatives of the Duuk
ards and another society not quite so
well known, styled Atnish, who do not
worship in houses, but in the open air.
Both classes will make desirable settlers
if they can be secured. Most of them
are well-to-do people, whose prime ob
ject in moving West is to obtain homes
for their children. They have been on
the ground and are satisfied with the
country and the prospect, though
fully aware of the failures made by
some of the old settlers in that vicinity.
East of the mountains, on the same
parallel, there are large settlements of
Slennonites extending some fifty miles
along the Canadian line, principally in
Canada. They have visited these, have
taken samples of the Turtle mountain
soil and are prepared to urge their asso
ciates to come. Mr. Bass also spoke of
a prospective immigration of Men
nonites, though the difficulty in secur
ing them is in the fact that their com
munity style of settlement is not prac
tical on government land. There are still
large tracts of government land which
may be entered under the homestead act
in and about the mountains. The mount
ains are high, undulated, wooded tracts,
full of lakes and open patches of grass
laud, surrounded by exceedingly rich
prairie. The timber is practically free
on the unoccupied lands to the prairie
settlers. The timber is principally pop
lar, though there are extensive tracts of
oak. There are strong indications of
coal in the mountains. ..

PINE iiAXDS GONE.
Senator Eaton, of the Legislative
Senator Eaton, the well-dnown Re
publican senator of Wright county.
member of the legislative pine land,
fraud committee, was seen at the Mer
chants' yesterday, and talked briefly.
"VVe shall probably have a meeting in
St. Paul of the committee some day
after the 20th of this month. The prob
abilities are that we will select one or'
more of the strongest cases for prosecu
tion, and lay our evidences before the
attorney general. It appears to the
committee that about all the state pine
lands of any particular value are gone,
and the evidence taken shows that a
large portion of them were practically
stolen, or, mure properly, secured at
prices far below their value.
However, there are always two
sides to every case, and when
the other side of these cases is heard, a
different light may come over matters.
Our investigations are, of course, ex
parte, the same as the hearing before a
grand jury on which an indictment is
found. It is unfair to decide that all
the cases before us are well founded in
fraud until the other sides are heard.
The C. A. Smith case lias been heard on
both sides, and it is in order for the
public to pass judgment upon it. How
ever. I wish to t.ay that 1 doubt that
State Auditor Biermann had any fraud
ulent intention in the matter."
"How about John S. Pillsbury and his
partner, C. A. Smith?"
'•Well, it is natural for any person or
linn to buy things as cheaply us possi
ble. The fact that Messrs." Pillsbury
and Smith bought the land at less than
its quantity and value does not neces
sarily make them particeps crrmihis in
the matter. Had it been shown that C.
A. Smith & Co. bribed the state auditor,
then both sides would be clearly guilty
of corruption. But this was not shown.
Under the finding of the court at Prince
ton, C. A. Smith & Co. are required to
pay $4 a thousand for all the pine they
have cut, so that the state will lose
nothing in this deal. if we could come
out this way in all the other pine land
cases the state would be made whole;
but, unfortunately, a great deal of
the pine was taken so long aco
that the quantity cannot now be fully
ascertained with any degree of certain

tablished years ago is a state land de
partment. lam satisfied that had this
been dorife the state would be millions
of dollars ahead now. But the horse is
out of the barn, and it is not worth
while to establish a land department
now. Of course, frauds could have
been perpetrated through the land de
partment; but this, like every state de
partment, would be subject to investi
gation at any time. It was certainly a
mistake for the state to undertake to
handle all its vast lauds without a land

United States Marshal Donahower
arrived home from Washington on the
noon train over the Milwaukee road
yesterday, and was at his office yester
day afternoon, with the exception of an
hour taken in company with Mrs. ;
Donahower in purchasing Christmas \
presents for some friends. Col. Dona
hower was in a very good-natured frame
of mind, and said that he is well pleased
with the idea of being done with the
cares of his present office in the near
future. lie found on his return a letter
from Attorney General Richard Olney,
stating that his resignation would be
accepted, taking effect on Dec. 31, or as ;
soon thereafter as possible. Asked
about his .resignation Marshal Dona-'
hower stated that he had to argue the
matter for a time with the attorney i
general to convince him that he was In t
earnest. He was treated very cordially
by Mr.Olney,\vho suggested that he need
not be In such a hurry to get out. Col.
Donahower replied that he did not de
sire to put the -department into a bad
position, but declared that it would be a
great kindness to release him before the
January term of court begins, as it
would require him to advance a large
amount of money and tie him up for
several mouths, as the courts will be in
almost continuous session until late
summer. Col. Donahower said that an
even dozen of marshals have tendered
their resignations. He says that under
the law passed by congress on March 3
last, the fees of the marshals are left in
an undetermined position. By that law
all persons arrested are to be taken be
fore the nearest commissioner or judi
cial officer for hearing. This is very
inconvenient and in many cases
impracticable. There is a doubt '
whether or not that law
does not mean a justice of the peace in
the state government, and the marshals
don't know whether their fees and
charges will be allowed in cases where
it is necessary to take prisoners before
commissioners or courts at places
where warrants are returnable ut is
sued. There has been a great amount
of correspondence on the subject. Mem
bers of the lower house and senators ;
have been urged to remodel the law. It
is the opinion that the agitation and the
resignation of several marshals will
bring the matter to a point, and at least
an opinion of the attorney general will
be forthcoming in the matter.
Marshal Donahower says that his
business is now in excellent condition
and he does not want to go into another
grist of heavy business with the view of
having to give up at any rate at the ex
piration of his term May 15. It was
told the marshal at the department that
the accounts of his chief clerk, Frank
Donahower, were the best reports sent

INTERVIEW WITH JACOB LITT, OF THE
GRAND OPERA HOUSE,
ON RETURN IliO.fJ NEW YORK.
The Hard Times Knocking Out
'*jj Theatrical Companies on the
I I Road —Five Thousand Idle
Actors in New York — Chicago
Theaters Doing Starvation
Business— "in Old Kentucky.''
Manager Jacob Litt, of the Grand
opera house, arrived 111 tho city yt'ster
d;ty, having come direct from New York
to be on hand at the opening perti»rm
ance of his latest success, "in Old Ken
tucky," here Sunday night. Mr. Litt
has not been in St. Paul since the close
of his summer stock season in July. In
speaking of the depression in the the
atrical trade, Mr. Litt said:
"Never in the history of the show
business has there been such depres
sion. Companies have been closing and
coming into New York steadily for the
past two mouths, and it is estimated
that there are 5,000 idle actors in New
York today. Things may brighten
after the holidays, but I very much
doubt it. There is too much distress
and destitution in the country, and the
people haven't money to spend for
amusements. Only the new and
stronger attractions seem to be
holding their own. Business in
St. Paul is no worse than anywhere else
in the country. In Ohlcairo the theaters
are doing nothing; they are starving, to
use an expressive term, and in New
York only two or three shows are doing
anything. 1 have been very fortunate
with my ventures, particularly those
which were first given to the public in
St. Paul. There is, there Fore, a very
soft spot in my heart for this city.
'The Ensign' is doing well everywhere,
and 'In Old Kentucky' is unquestiou
ably the greatest dramatic hit of the
year. 1 may say without exaggeration
that no American play was eyer re
ceived with greater favor in New York.
It packed the Academy of Music, the
biggesl theater in New York, for ten
consecutive weeks, and in Washington,
Baltimore, Pittsburg, Brooklyn and
other Eastern cities it wus capacity
night after night. This proves tome
that the public wants new plays— and
good ones. 'Fake' dramas have seen
"How did you happen to hit udou "In
Old Kentucky?' "
"'Kentucky?' Well, let me see, it
was a year ago last August. My stock
company was playing here in repertoire.
We were to put on 'Oliver Twist.' The
scenery was all prepared, the printing
ready and the companj' in rehearsal,
when the manuscript of 'In Old Ken
tucky' was submitted to me. 1 read It,
as also did Mr. Bibxy. We thought we
saw in It some germs of genius, and I
decided to try it. I wired Mr. Dazey,
the author, and he came on in a couple
of days. We began rehearsals at once,
and put it on in five days, without, of
course, any special scenery. It seemed
to meet with public favor, even in its
crude state, and I was .so satisfied that it
would be a go that I bought it.
1 suggested a number of changes
in plot and character, and Mr. Dazey
went to work upon it. He worked all
winter whipping it into shape, and the
result was a success from the opening
night in Pittsburg. Iv the original
St. Paul cast were several strong favor
ites here. Louis James played the Ken
tucky colonel, a splendidly drawn and
original character. Frank Loses played
the moonshiner; Julia Arthur, who has
since become a great metropolitan fa
vorite, was the Barbara ;George Edieson
played the old negro, a before-the-war
servant, filled with the traditions of the
past, and Marion Elmore created the
role of Madge, the heroine, who appears
in one scene as a jockey, aud who is
now personated by Laura Burt. Miss
Burt has made the hit of her life in the
"Mr. Dazey made fame aud fortune in
a night— that first night iv St, Paul.
That is where Dazey is like the im
mortal Byron. He is now collaborating
with Oijcar Weil— not Wilde— on an
opera for the Bostonians, is writing a
play for Charles Frohman, and is also
at work on a new one for me, which 1
can best describe as a society melo
drama, dealing with a suoject and a
phase of life which have hitherto been
untouched by the dramatist. I shall
make a big production of this piece, aud
put it on next season.
One of the novel features of "In Old
Kentucky" is the pickaninny band of
little colored boys, who may be said to
have become nearly as famous as Mr.
Dazey In New York,and a lot of trsuble,
worry and expense they cost me. 1
nearly despaired of finding them, but I
sent my manager, Mr. A. W. Dingwall,
on a tour through the South on a pick
aninny hunt. He spent two mouths in
Dixie and traveled through every South
ern state. He finally got-together this
band. They are black as night, small,
play on musical instruments aud act.
They are only an incident in the pro
duction of this play, which is a powerful
domestic drama, but they give color to
this admirable picture of Southern life.
Mr. DingwalFs sojourn among South
ern colored gentlemen did not make
him black, but he now talks with the
pure negro dialect.
"I shall not have a stock company
here next summer. 1 lost §10,000 on the
big company 1 had here last summer,
and that is very expensive amusement
for a manager. No, next summer I
shall take a rest- the first I shall have
had since I have been in the business—
and go to Europe. By the way, there is
a strong probability that 1 snail produce
'In Old Kentucky' at the Princess'
theater, London. Overtures have al
ready been made to me, and I shalljlook
into matters more thoroughly when I go
over. A St. Paul pioductlon in London
is not bad, is it?"
Mr. Litt is in particular good spirits
and health and will remain for about
ten days, when he will return to New
