yMINOT, N. D., April 4.— About one month
ago the saloons or "blind pigs" were closed
by the Citizens' league; and injunctions placed
on the buildings. Liquors and fixtures were
seized, and locked up by the Citizens' league
and .held until this morning, when Sheriff
John O'Hara and • Attorney C- B. Gregory pro
ceeded with a writ of replevin to return the
saloon outfits to their respective owners. Pro
curing an axe the sheriff broke the lock of a
building which contained the property and car
ried the stuff back to its former owners. Hav
ing done this, the next thing was to get posses
sion of some liquors which were held by T. E.
Bryant, a self-assumed police officer," and who
was instrumental In pulling the 'blind pigs."
Tfce sheriff went to the residence of Mr. Bry
ant and demanded admission. Bryant flatly
refused to allow the sheriff to search his build
ing without the necessary search warrant
from the judge. C. E. Gregory, an attorney,
then made an attempt to enter the building
and was also repulsed by' "Mr. Bryant. The
two ciinchoS and began pounding and scratch
ing each other pretty badly, . when Sheriff
O'Hara interfered; and separated them. i~A
large [crowd had gatthered" to watch the pro
ceedings, and frequently gave vent to their
feelings by cheering the sheriff, the citizens
seemingly being in sympathy with the "blind
loggers:" ••"'-*:•''•* •»; . - -y • •
In conversation with Joseph Strain, - mer
chant, and P. H. Lee, . merchant, and also
mayor of the city, who were the prime movers
in this case, It was learned that Sheriff O'Hara
and Attorney C. E. Gregory are acting on
their own responsibility, and that both are
liable for contempt. -Judge Templeton, of Far-
go, has ordered a stay of proceedings for five
days, and the "blind pigs" will again be
given into the care of some enterprising dray-
man. The two sides are bitter in their de-
nunciations of each other, and before the mat-
ter is settled. fears are entertained for another
George C. Haddock affair. District Attorney
McGowan, of Devil's Lake, .has ordered the
return of all the saloon fixtures to the build- -
ings from which - they were ' forcibly* taken
this morning, without further delay. More
trouble Is anticipated. ,' /; y**, . ; -.-
FREUND WATCHED THE VICTIM.
A Little Girl Gives Sensational Tes-
mony in the Ober Case.
Special to the Globe. _ . :
FAIRMONT, Minn., April 4.— The Freund
case was called- this morning at 9 a. m., with
Mr. Neuman still on the stand. He answered
a few unimportant questions and was dismiss-
cd. Delia Neuman, his little daughter,- was
sworn for the state, and. testified that on the
morning of July 30 she turned her father's
cows into the pasture by the mill; saw an ob-
ject in the pool below the dam; did not know
what it was; this was in the morning. . Saw
Jacob Freund; on the wheel side of the pool
looking at some 'object." Saw him cross the
bridge a little way 'down; always with
his eyes' on the object In the water. He then
-went. away. At about 10 a. m. she returned to
I the dam and pool In company with another
girl. They threw sticks and stones. at it," but
did not hit it. They thought it was a mud tur
tle. Did not fina out then! what "it was.
Edith Blair, sworn for the state, said she was
a sister of Clara Ober. Within„the last four
or five years Clara lived the most of the time
with Freund's family. Witness had often
been in Freund's house and seen Freund act
very familiarly with Clara. He often accom
panied them home. The day before the drown-
ing Clara went down town to her mother's.
Witness went to look for her shortly after and
found her talking with Freund down town.
Asked her to come home. Freund said to
witness, "you go on." She asked the marshal
if Clara could not go home with her, and she
started off home and Freund and Clara came
walking down the street, and shortly Clara
came home. : That evening after supper Clara
war going out with their aunt Aberlin.and wit
ness-assisted Clara in washing her face and
neck and combed her hair. Her neck had no
bruises or marks on It. Clara returned from
her visit about 10 o'clock., and Clara and she
went to bed.. They slept in the same room up
stairs, but in different beds. Witness slept
soundly ' that night . and when wit
ness . awoke Clara was gone. ' Witness
then detailed ■•- their • - search- - - for the
missing girl, . Ex-Sheriff Cummings, of Fart-

. OTTUMWA, 5 10., April 4.— The . free silver
-Democrats of lowa will make a determined
effort to capture the Dubuque convention
and they will be -assisted by j ex-Gov. Boles.
.Boies' has consented to go to Chicago .as a
delegate at large from lowa, If the platform
declares for free silver. - This •Is practically
the first move to secure the Democratic nom
ination for president for Mr. Bores, and it is
participated in by prominent white metal
Democrats, not only in lowa, but in other
parts of the West. His answer to a letter
sent him, requesting j him to run, Is a tacit
admission that he will -accept the nomination
if tendered him. He says :
"I am. in full accord with your view that.
some plan should be - adopted °by which, as
nearly, as practicable, a full and explicit
showing of the sentiment of a majority of
the Democratic party in our stato 'upon the
question of . the . free coinage . of silver, as
money of final redemption' may be had; and,
inasmuch . as 'I am now unable to - suggest a
method by which we would bo more likely to
accomplish that end, other than the one sug
gested in our ; letter, jj I - have : concluded \to
adopt your suggestion : and allow the .use of
my, name as a candidate for : delegate .at
large to the Chicago convention, with the un
derstanding, however, >. that -if our state con
vention at Dubuque, by resolution or oilier
wise, approves of our present financial policy,
I shall not be expected to serve."
The letter sent Mr. Boles was signed by
C. A. Walsh and E. W. Curry, of the Demo
cratic state central . committee, and hun
dreds of prominent Democrats hint of a bolt
if the convention declares for gold.' It says:
"We deem .it of vital importance to the
Democratic, party, not only of lowa, but of
the whole nation'that the local sentiment and
belief :of our Democratic masses upon the
great question of currency reform, j which will
overshadow every other Issue in the campaign
of 1896, should bo reflected in the platforms
to be adopted at Dubuque and Chicago. - No
double-faced \ platform, meaning a gold stan
dard" to ''one class* of voters ' and a bimetallic
standard to another class, should be tolerated
or endured.* Believing that a straddling
policy, if adopted, will be ruinous to the
Democratic party and * will completely wipo
it out of existence in lowa and many other
states; and to the end that the masses of
lowa Democrats may be Induced to attend
primaries and register their will in this mat-
ter, we ask you to permit the use of your
name as a candidate for delegate at large to
head the Democratic delegation of lowa at
tho Chicago convention."...

" "*** Value an Straws'.-*
- 0., April 4.— Municipal elec
tions will be held in Ohio next Monday. As
the selection of mayors does not occur in the
larger cities, it is an off year in local affairs.
Only minor city officers are elected in * Cleve
land - and Columbus, - and- no election Is ' held
thin spring in Cincinnati. In Dayton and other
cities mayors are to ;be elected, but it is not
thought that the elections will show any
straws in either state or national politics.

pal elections than was ever, known heretofore.

WITH THE WISHES OF HIS PARTS"-
City Committee Criticised for Fall*
ing: to Have a List of Primary
Polling Places Published.
Democratic In the most wholesome sense v>-nm
the meeting of Democrats in the Globe build
ing last night. After it was over the atmos
phere was clearer by several degrees. Every
man who cared to speak had done so, fully,
and without fear. There was only one bona
of contention, that the places of holding, tha
primary elections .on . Monday have not been
published by the city committee.. Re
presentatives from "the":; Democratic'" wards
■ were^especially., stirred at the failure of the
city committee to properly | advertise ' • the
primary ; poking places. . Some gentlemen
even went .'so far as to say. that the" law has
not been complied with- in this respect, but
representatives of the city committee insist
that this is not so.
J. C. Michael was chairman of the meeting
and John Giltlnan secretary. There^.were
about sixty gentlemen present," and the pro
ceedings were open to reporters, a motion to
make it executive being voted down. , Chair*'
man Michael stated the meeting was. a con-'
tinuation of a movement to harmonize the j
differences in the Democratic ranks. He
could conceive of no good reason why this
should not be easy of accomplishment, , and
hoped the conference 'would 'be" successful.
On the mayoralty question Thomas D.-
O'Brien reported that ' William Dawson had'
absolutely declined to allow" the' 'use of his
name, because of his advanced age, his large
private business and* the 'state of his health.
The report was received and the committee
discharged. '-,_,....
. From the committee to examine the primary,
law George Lambert reported that the com
mittee was of opinion the judges must' be
elected by the people at the opening of the
primaries. . ..."
John E. Hearn expressed a doubt as to
whether the law has been complied with in'
posting notices of the primaries. He had been
unable to find any such notices ln the Fourth*
ward. The chairman .of the city committee, '
Mr. * Scannell, had promised to attend the
meeting and make a statement, but had failed
to keep his promise. - y
- O. O. Cullen said he w§,s present when Mr.
Scannell made the promise alluded to. and!
he felt disappointed at his non-attendance. l
At a conference with representatives of the
city committee an j agreement had been en
tered into to come together for cool counsel
in the effort to secure harmony for the good
of the city and the party.
Thomas J. McDermott, after hearing Mr.
Cullen's statement, : moved that It be -ex-
pressed as the sense of. the meeting that
the city . convention called for the 11th inst.,
be postponed one week. ■
Dr. Stone and Ed J. Darragh agreed that
this could not very well be done under the
law, because of the requirement that twenty,,'
days' notice of primaries shall be given, and
the only difficulty seemed -to be in regard
to the primaries. However, after the primar
ies the convention could be adjourned with
out harm. " •'•' ' ■'■";' j '*' - -"
Mr. Hearn Intimated rather broadly that
the city committee was pursuing a questiona
ble course, and Mr. Darragh excitedly denied
the allegation.
D. F. Peebles also questioned the correct
ness of Mr. Heath's position.
Thomas D. O'Brien sharply pointed put thaj
if there was any cause of dissension, it should
be settled decently 'and without any exhibition,
of a bad spirit. This led Mr. Dwyer, a mem*
ber of the city committee, to say that he dl<
not know why Mr. Scannell was not present^
Neither himself nor Mr. Darragh was respond
slble for the chairman of the city committee,
A. S. Hall, William Johnson and Justice oj
the Peace Nelson spoke for the adoption oi
some course of procedure that would product
an amicable understanding all around.
On motion of Mr. O'Brien, a motion wat
passed that a committee bo appointed to re-<
quest the city committee to" publish ; a list
of the primary polling places in the Globs
Monday morning. Messrs. Darragh, DwyerV
Peebles and Ryder were named as such conn
mittee.
Mr. Darragh was -then asked to state hi*
position, .and. did so in a vehement speech,
which he based on a Pioneer Press report o|
the meeting held last Wednesday evening. II?
wants to see. the Democrats win, he saidl.
and feels -sure they- can. and will elect tha
mayor and council.. He emphasized the state
ment that he had started out -to "down the
old outfit." but it was for the purpose o^
having a ticket named regardless of .. a slats,
in a convention of delegates -selected, by, all
the Democrats of the - city. O. O. Cullen ot
William Dawson Jr. would -be as acceptably
to him as any man that had been named.
Pat McHughy of* the Eighth ward, asked
Mr. Darragh point blank why his city com
mittee was keeping socret the location of the
polling places, if they are In earnest ln de-
