MARKET HOUSE WANTED.
PARTIES WANT TO LEASE IT FOR TEN
YEARS.
A LARGE RENTAL OFFERED.
Parties Desire to Rent tho Prop
erty for Ten Years, Paying
$3,000 a Year First Two
Years, and 1,000 a Year Re
mainder of Term — Would
Lower First Floor.
The committee on public buildings
from the board of aldermen held a
meeting yesterday afternoon, and dis
cussed the proposition to lease the
market house for a term of ten years.
11. A. Campbell, a real estate dealer
with offices in the chamber of commerce
building, said that he represented par
ties who were anxious to lease the
basement and first lloor of the market
house for a term of ten years. The
parties were willing to pay $3,000 per
year for the first two years, and $4,00J
for the other -eight. Asked as to who
the parties were, and what business
they intended to use the building for,
Mr. Campbell said he would rather not
say. They were perfectly responsible,
and the business to be conducted would
not be objectionable. In case ths. coun
cil should decide to lease the building.
Mr. Campbell said something like $10,
--000 would be spent in lowering the first
lloor level with the street and in making
other needed changes. All this would
be stood by the company. The lease
and the occupancy of the building, Mr.
Campbell thought, would greatly en
hance the value of the property in ease
the city should desire to sell it at some
future date.
* Aid. Copeland was not in favor
of leasing the building for ten
years, claiming that before the expira
tion of the lease the city would either
want to use the building or sell it and
purchase elsewhere for an auditorium
or library. Mr.Campbell said the parties
he represented would not care to take a
leass for any shorter time than ten years
owing to the expense which would be
necessary to place the building in a
suitable condition. Aid. Hickman was
inclined to think a five years' lease
would be preferable for the best inter
ests of the city. After some further
discussion it was decided to refer the
matter back with the recommendation
thai a joint committee of four from each
body be appointed to act with the com
mittees oh public buildings on the prop
position.

THE FISH COMMISSION.
THEY MAKE AN INTERESTING ANNUAL
REPORT TO THE GOVERNOR.
THE WORK OF THE PAST YEAR
Efforts to Educate the People to
Observe the Law Preserving
Game and Fish— Five Hundred
Tons of Fish Shipped From
Lake Pepin— Large Number of
Nets Captured and Confiscated.
The annual report of the fish com
mission was turned in to Gov. Nelson
yesterday. It is a long, but Interesting
document.full of statistics and practical
suggestions. Tlieir work has been from
an economical rather than from the
sportsman's point of view, and the
means used and the results sought,
practical rather than fanciful or theor
etical. It is alleged the citizens un
wisely and indiscriminately slaughter
at all times and seasons, and the tend
ency is rapidly toward the inevitable
result— extermination.
The board have tried to educate the
people as to the laws for the preserva
tion and protection of game and fish,
and they note progress in that direction.
They have sought to promote the propa
gation, preservation and protection of
birds and game as well as fish, and they
believe that people are beginning to
have some comprehension of the value
to them, and to realize that it means
cheaper food to them instead of simply
Sitviug something for the benefit of
sportsmen, which was the old idea of
laws on this subject. They speak of
the pot hunters and express the belief
that they have adopted a scheme which
will successfully prevent the destruction
or game by those engaged In shipping
out of the state. They have also put a
stop in some degree to the use of nets
in inland waters which have done so
much to interfere with the work of the
commission, and are rewarded by find
ing a wonderful increase of young fry
in these waters.
Cold storage is looked upon as a sys
tem tending to the destruction or game
and fish, and is the greatest obstacle
they have had to contend with. Four
thousand carcasses of venison will be
shipped out of the state this year
through this means, and at least 280,000
birds. They have not had the co-opera
tion of the common carriers doing busi
ness in the state, and it is alleged that
they have knowingly carried the game
out of the state, contrary to law. This
trouble has in a measure been remedied
since the indictment of one of the num
ber, and blame is thrown on the em
ployes rather than on the corporations.
From Lake Pepin over 500 tons of fish
have been shipped. More than 6.000
tons are annually handled at St. Paul,
Minneapolis and" Duluth. The fish have
been taken not only for food for the
inhabitants, but for swine, and in some
instances for fertilizing.
They have confiscated and destroyed
350 nets, the aggregate length ot which
amount to 42.300 feet, or about eight
miles, some of them being 1,800 feet in
length. The estimated value of these
nets is $3,500. They have destroyed set
lines that aggregate nearly two miles In
length. On the Mississippi river they
have found that their vigorous efforts
have caused the fishermen doing busi
ness on this river to band themselves
together and form a union to resist the
enforcement of the law. but they have
arrested many, have tried and have se
cured convictions in a number of in
stances. They understand that the law
is good and sufficiently strong, and that
the commission are able to compel them
to observe it.
Tne report of the work of the fish
hatchery, and its work is an interesting
feature and of much value.

Tricks on Travelers.
Kate Field's Washington.
I wanted one day to buy a guide book
of Washington to keep for the use of
my visiting friends, ana protested as
the storekeeper handed me out two or
three with xainbow-hued colors.
"Haven't you something that isn't
bright led or green or yellow?" I in
quired. "This will be used sometimes
by a lady, and it may not match her
costume."
The storekeeper smiled. "I don't
know what you can do," said he "except
to tear the covers off. All we have are
in those bright colors, and I doubt if
there are any sober-looking one's pub
lished."
"Why not?" 1 asked..
"1 don't know," said he, "but"—con
fidentially—"l suspect there is an ar
rangement between the guide-book
makers and the professional guides
here in Washington. A guide would
waste a good deal of his time making
advances to regular residents unless
he had something to distinguish
strangers by. There are a good
many old citizens, you know, who
look about them in public places like
curiosity-seekers, just as there are a
good many utter strangers who try to
affect the air of residents. Whenthe
guides take in a strolling person with
their eyes and catch a glimpse of one of
these bright-colored books clasped in
his hand or sticking out of his pocket
they say, 'There's our game!' and go for
him.''
1 doubted this statement just enough
to make me curious to test its truth.
So, chancing to be in the capitol that
day, 1 walked about casually looking at
things, but without being addressed by
any guide. Then I tore the wrapper off
my friend's book and placed it in my
pocket with a little scarlet corner peep
ing out. Inside of a minute 1 had a
guide on either side of me with an offer
to show the whole building for $1.
The trick evidently works.

A POSTPONEMENT ASKED
OF THE MEETING TO ELECT A BUILD
ING INSPECTOR.
MORRIS WANTS ALL. PRESENT.
Assemblyman Johnson Says He
Has No Authority to Delay the
Meeting— Building Inspector
Morris Asks the Postponement
on Account of the Absence of
Aid. Conley and Warren.
Assemblyman Johnson and several
other members of the council who at
tended the caucus Friday night met
yesterday afternoon at the city hall.
Johnson, as president of the joint
bodies, explained that he had been re
quested by' Building Inspector Morris
to defer the call for a meeting of the
council to elect a building inspector.
This request was made, Mr. Johnson
said, owing to the absence of Aid.
Wan en and Conley from the city, and
the statement that these gentlemen
would not be home until after the first
meeting in January. Mr. Johnson said
that he had no authority to postpone
the calling of the joint bodies even if
he felt so inclined. Assemblyman
Doran thought the best way, if
the two aldermen mentioned could not
be present at the time of the election,
was to record them as voting for C. A.
F. Morris for building inspector. An
other of the Republican city fathers
who was present said he could see
nothing io be gained by a postpone
ment of the election. There were only
five Democratic votes in the council,
and even if this number and the two
Republicans who stayed out of the cau
cus should vote for Mr. Morris that gen
gleman could not secure enough votes
to elect him. The hope entertained by
Mr. Morris that any of the thirteen
members who attended the caucus
would bolt the nomination was, he
said, a forlorn one. The decision ar
rived at by those who were seen yes
terday was that the election would take
place on the evening of Jan. 2 and at
the same meeting the official printer of
the city for the coming year will be
selected.
COTTON BUSINESS GOOD.
Georgia and South Carolina Mills
in Full Blast.
Augusta, Ga., Dec. 23. -The Chron
al will say editorially tomorrow: "In
a year of unexampled depression in cot
ton manufacturing in the Eastern
states the mills of Georgia and South
Carolina have been miming on full
time. With climate advantages,
cheap water power and raw ma
terial at first cost, all largo
factories have made money and
paid dividends. Mills in and around
Augusta made a splendid showing for
the year just closing. The Augusta
factory, capital $(100,000, paid 6 per cent
dividends; Enterprise Manufacturing
company, capital 750.000. 6 per cent;
Sibley Manufacturing company, $1,000,
--000 capital. 6 per cent; King Manu
facturing company, $1,000,000 capital,
6 per cent: Granitevtlle Manufactur
ing company,SGoo,ooo,lo per cent; Lang
try Manufacturing company increased
its capital during the year from $400,000
to $000,000, and will pay a semi-annual
dividend of 3 per cent on increased cap
ital. The dividends of these mills show
that the South is the most inviting field
for cotton goods, and indications
are that in the near future
new factories will be started
in this section. In 18S0 the South con
sumed 200.000 bales of cotton. In 1803 [
the Southern mills consumed GOO.OOO
bales. There could be no stronger evi
dence of the Souths superiority over
the North in its advantages for cotton
manufacturing than during the past
year. Northern mills have been shut
down, while mills In the South have
beeu running on full time, and have
paid good dividends."
THE UNaPKAKABLB TURK.
■ How the Moslem Missionary Im
presses People in New York.
Rochester Post-Express.
Mr. Webb, the apostle of Islamism in
this country, seems to meet with much
favor, and it has been almost the fashion
in Rochester to sit at his feet and
imagine that one was hearing some
thing new and holy. There are, of
course, many delusions prevalent in
Christendom about Mohammed and his
creed, and it is gocd to get rid of them,
but there are certain broad facts in re
gard to it that should not be set aside
with the foolish prejudices. As a
religion, it is sensual more than spirit
ual : it has lent itself to the degradation
of women; it has been unfortunate in
that it was propagated by the sword,
and that it has been identified with the
fiercest ignorance and bigotry. It was
from the very beginning made the ex
cuse for conquest; and It has been
always a political creed, and in so far
everything gentle and divine in it was
perverted to the service of the
worst passions of humanity. Judging
Mosleiuism slmpiy as manifested
through Moslems and incapable of
swaying them for good, it has been one
of the great curses of the world.
Wherever it has gone, destruction fol
lowed. It has left Egypt and Asia
Minor in ruins, with nothing but the
fragments of the old civilization scat
tered here and there. It befouled and
defiled Greece and Southwestern Eu
rope.and it sits like an incubus on one of
the great distributing commercial cen
ters of the earth— the Bosphorus. In a
word, the unspeakable Turk has been
an unspeakable nuisance. The religion
is not responsible, of course, for all this
deviltry, but it is a failure because it
has been incapable of bringing about
development among those who profess
It. We are at one with the Rochester
woman who remarked: "Well. 1 have
gone to hear a lecture on occultism, and
1 have listened to an apostle of Islamism ;
and" 1 guess 1 will manage to rough it a
little longer on Christianity."

THE IRISH LEADER MAY FIGURE IN
THE COUGHLIN TRIAL.
OF DEATH WARRANT.
Mrs. Foy's Testimony Showing
Him to Be the Writer of the
Famous Letter Is Denied by
Him— Alexander Sullivan Says
Ho Is Ready to Tell What He
Knows at Any Time.
Chicago, Dec. 23.— 1t was gossip
around the court room to-day that'
Michael Davitt, the Irish leader, may
figure in the Coughlin trial as a . wit
ness, either personally or by a deposi
tion taken In London. According to
Mrs. Foy it is said a letter
represented by Coughlin to have
been received from Mr. Davit
was made to serve as Dr. Cronin's
death warrant. Friends of Davitt are
satisfied of the utter Impossibility of
his having written such a letter, and he
will be asked to make a statement un
der oath concerning the matter. It was
at first proposed that he should come
here to testify, but it is said the plan
now Is to have him appear before a
magistrate in London and make affidavit
to the effect that he never wrote a
letter advising the "removal" of Dr.
Cronin or any one else. He will also be
asked to make a full explanation con
cerning any letter he may have written
to any one in America which contained
the sentence: "Remove at all hazards,
but use your own discretion.*' In view
ot the reference to
ALEXANDER SULLIVAN
in the testimony of Mrs. Foy, and of the
more or less general impression that lv
has never made any statement in refer
ence to his alleged connection with the
case. Mr. Sullivan was called upon to
day at his law office aud asked why he
had never made any denial of knowledge
of the case, Mr. Sullivan indignantly
denied that he had been silent, ana said:
"WhenCronin was first reported to be
missing, 1 stated repeatedly to report
ers and others that I new nothing con
cerning his whereabouts. When his
body was discovered 1 ' expressed regret
for bis terrible fate, and hope that the
guilty ones would be discovered an d
brought to justice. During the coro
ner's inquest, 1 questioned J. Lane, the
well-known reporter, to inform Coroner
Hertz that I was willing to testify at
the inquest. Mr. Lane informed me
that he did so state to Mr. Hertz, but 1
was not called. Later one of the grand
jurors who investigated the case, Henry
Greenbaum, met me on the street, and
expressed regret that 1 did not tes
tify before the grand jury. 1 told
him the state's attorney had con
trol of that investigation, and I could
not go unless subpoenaed, but would
have gone promptly if asked, and was
ready to testify whenever called.
Mr. Greenbaum inquired if be had
permission to state the subject of
our conversation to State's Attorney
Longenecker. I replied promptly in
the affirmative. Subsequently Mr.
Greenbaum informed me that ne had
repeated the conversation to Mr. Longe
necker, and had suggested that he
(Longenecker) interrogate me, but
Mr. Longenecker, he said, declined
to do so. 1 am ready now to
testify, but am powerless to force
my appearance in a case to which 1 am
not a party. So far as the Foy woman's,
testimony refers to me, it is infamously
false. She made a statemeet for pub
lication recently, in which she ascribed 1
to another the authorship of an imagi
nary letter which she now pretends to
ascribe to me." '■ '.A'A '■ \
BONES OF GIANTS.
They Were Found Under the
Kcots of a Tree.
Recently J. C. Fairfield, boss logger
on Wishkah river, Chehalis county.
Washington, while clearing for a road,
felled a hemlock that mst have been 150
years old. While grubbing the root a
number of human bones were unearthed,
among them two skulls, which attracted
attention because of their enormous
size. The thickness of one of the skulls
from ear to ear is at least one-third
greater than that ot the average man.
The bone at the back ot the skull shows
no evidence of having consisted origin
ally of four distinct pieces.
The lower jaw bone is at least one
Inch thick, and the horseshoe of tne jaw
bone is enormous in comparison with
that of any ordinary man.
The strangest part of the discovery is
that the teeth are set on edge instead of
being broadside on. The grow in the
jaw bone with the greatest width from
the front to the rear, and with the nar
row edge presented to the front.
With the bones was found a rude
stone Implement, similar to that used by
primitive man for beating skins, re
sembling a dumbbell more than any
other instrument. The Wishkah river
begins its career in the foot hills of the
Olympic mountains, and comes almost
south to empty into Gray's harbor. None
of the Indians of Gray's harbor country
can be persuaded to hunt or fish up this
river, or for any cause to navigate its
waters.
They have a legend that many years
ago a great bird of ill omen carried its
prey to the head waters of the river and
polluted its source. This gave it the
name which it has to this day.and which
in Indian language means "stinking
water." The legend says that those
Indians living along the banks drank of
the water and died, only one living to
tell the tale to the neighboring tribes.
This legend, which is a part ot the folk
lore of the Indians hereabouts, must
have been handed down for hundreds
of years, and during all that time the
river has been shunned as something
pestilential.

THE LAST DYING EFFORT
Of a Shameless Conspiracy
• . Waged Against Him Since He
j • Wrote His Little Book— Mgr.
Satolli and Bishop Wigger
Brought Into Direct Collision.
i Hoboken, N. J., Dec. 23.— Rev.
Father Corrigan, of the Church of Our
Lady of Grace, makes the following
statement concerning the differences
between himself and Father -Franclsca
Dominica Faris, which has brought the
orders of Mgr. Satolli and Bishop Wig
ger In direct collision. When the case
first came up he decided to be silent,
and he still declined to enter into any
discussion of the matter, as it was still
in the hands of the apostolic delegate,
but he said that it Is "The result and,
1 trust, the last dying effort of a most
shameless conspiracy that has been
waged against me since I wrote the
little pamphlet which Bishop Wig
ger . condemned at its appear
ance in 18S3. The little work was
an honest and earnest cry for a new
legislation for the American church,
and it found au echo in the heart of
every American, whether Catholic or
not. One of its results was the Balti
more conncil of 1884, and its first . tri
umph was the establishment of a papal
delegation at Washington and the con
sequent promulgation of the pope's
policy on the relation of Catholics to the
public schools. The only things worth
noting in the communication do not
bear on the merits of the case at all ; be
sides, they are absolutely false. I refer
to the statements that 1 asked Dr. Faris
to work against Bishop Wigger and
Archbishop Corrigan, and that 1 insist
ed that he should undertake the defense
of a certain priest. All that I ever
askea the doctor to do was the transla
tion of a few letters into Italian,
and these letters had already appeared
in all the newspapers, as ihey related to
the discussion on
THE SCHOOL QUESTION.
i As to the alleged deiense of the priest,
I told him when 1 had ascertained he
was interfering iv the matter that the
priest could make no possible de
fense of his conduct. The state
ment that the papal delegate and
Dr. Fabris were intimate friends
in Italy, needs considerable modi
fication for according to the delegate
himself, his first rcquaiutance with the
reverend doctor was made in California.
The question of the disposition of the
money offerings for the masses on
the feast of All Souls requires
some explanation. Ten years ago some
priests practiced announcing to their
people that in place of offering the mass
ou Nov. 2 for the souls in purga
tory, as was the custom, they
would offer it only for the
deceased whose friends would
scud their names to the priest ou a
slip of paper, enclosing a sum of
money. The offering "in a parish
like mine amounted to about $200
in prosperous times. Now to the
question regarding the announcement
of names previous to the feast of Ail
Souls on Nov. 2, 1 announced from the
pulpit seven or eight times that there
would be three high masses and no
other masses offeied for the inten
tion of those who should make a
pecuniary offering,- ana that the
money would be used for char
ity. 1 celebrated the three masses my
self without any help from any of my
three assistants. 1 did this to shut out
any possible claim on the part of the
assistants, ana to control tlie distribu
tion of the funds on account of the
severity of the winter. My extra
precautions were not in vain, for the
money had hardly been taken from the
'box when Rev. Dr. Fabris asked me for
his share of the money. I told him in
surprise that neither he nor any of the
others had ony claim at all on the fund,
as 1 had made a distinct
CONTRACT WITH THE PEOPLE,
and that their money would reacn the
poor. '.Dr. Fabris then told me that he
was very poor, and that 1 should give
linn a snare on that account. 1
did not not' suspect the siiarp game
which tho reverend doctor was
then playing, but the subsequent de
velopments proved it, and proved 1 was
not too much on my guard against any
possible surprise, lor had 1 given him
any of the funds on such a plea he would
have claimed an equal share from
the others iv whose interest he was
evidently acting, and for whom, it is
claimed, he appealed to the delegate,
though In vain. Failing in his efforts
to get any for himself on the plea of
poverty, Dr. Fabris saU thai his
brother iv Chicago was poor and couid
not pay his house reut, aud was out of
employment on account ot just subse
quent events, which I have resolved not
to touch. If a division had been
made, 1 said, his share would be
over $50 audi would give him that
amount of the fund in charity, but not
because of any claim to it in justice. 1
gave him the $50 and subsequently
another §10 and yet the reverend gentle
man joined his fellow assistants in
appealing for his share of. the money.
The oishop, it is stated, has commanded
me to pay the money to Father
Callaghau. of East Orange, assist
ant at that time to Father Fitz
uatrlck, and to the Rev. Dr.
Fabris. I am in hopes, however, that
the bishop will change his mind when
he fully weighs the circumstances. 1
regret very much to be forced again to
defend myself in the public press. This
is how things stand now."
THE SWEDES.
The Men and Women of Sweden
Are Big, Strong and Vigorous.
Cornhill Magazine.
What enormous fellows and what
leviathan persons some of those Swedish
men and women are! Nowhere will
you see such noble specimens of adul
humanity as in Stockholm's streets.
The feature seems to pervade all classes,
though it is not least striking among
the no bility. Six feet is a common
height for a man here, and really Ido
not believe 1 exaggerate in saying that
men of six feet three or four inches are
as abundant is Stockholm as men of six
feet with us.
The tallness of the women is just as
noteworthy. You remark It less, how
ever, because they are so well propor
tioned. They say it is easy to tell by
the size of the boots outside the doors
which rooms of a hotel are occupied by
the Swedish fair. This is a very endur
able hit at the_6wedish ladies. Though
they do wear sixes or sevens in shoe
leather, no sculptor would find fault
with them on professional grounds.
Moreover, they have most winsome
complexions, and, of course, blue eyes
are nowhere more intensely blue than
here.
It is comforting to know (I speak on
the evidence of one of the pensionaires)
that Swedish maidens have great ad
miration for English bachelors. They
read French novels, but they believe in
English bridegrooms The blood bond
still exsists, 1 suppose, between them
and us. _ . ' - •
Bonds Stolen. ■
Springfield, Mo., Dec. 23.— Between
2 and 4 o'clock this afternoon, while J.
B. Dixon, a real estate and bond broker,
was 1 absent from his . office, thieves en
tered, and forcing open the safe and the
drawer compartments within, succeeded
in getting away with a large number of
valuable bonds, securi ties and deeds to
real estate, and 128.50 iv cash. There is
no clue to the thieves, but the police are
bard at work on tbe case. Tbe bonds
and securities were not negotiable, and
any attempts to dispose of them will 1
lead to tbe detection of tbe thieve*. i
WHAT a wonderful invention is the Phono
graph! How startling it seems to hear its
mysterious voice and its almost incompre
hensible music! If some means could only be de
vised to reproduce nature and art as the phono
graph reproduces sound. To sit comfortably in
our homes and see a panorama of the world's
glories pass in review before us, as easily as we
listen to the phonograph's open mouth.
We Have Accomplished It !
If this happy group had secured a copy of
Sights and Scenes of the World, their smiles
would be even more pronounced and their happi
ness more unalloyed. What is more entrancing
than travel among the varied scenes and peoples of
the earth? We all love to travel, but some of us
haven't the means to do so, and those who are able
to travel like to live over again the memories of
the pleasant scenes of the past.
In all such cases our great art publication fills
the bill. The selection of views is admirable, the
workmanship cannot be surpassed, and the plan is
without fault. The book complete would grace
any library in the world, and each part as received
will meet with admhation from every member of
the family. There is no work published which can
take the place of th is, or even successfully com
pare with it. It is the most magnificent premium
offer ever made by a newspaper, and it is our
earnest desire that all of our readers should profit
by it before it is too late.
