Few Days to Negotiate a,
The election of William McKinley and
the maintenance of the sound money
principles is expected to have a marked
influence on railroad investments and
improvements. It has been known for
some time that several of the leading
line? running into the Twin Cities were
awaiting a favorable result of the elec
tion to decide a number of important
matters. It is believed that the North
ern Pacific and the Great Northern will
scon make extensive investments all
along their respective lines, especially
on the Pacific coast.
It was rumored on good authority yes
terday that Ansel Oppenheim, of the
Chicago-Great Western, would start for
Europe about the middle of the month
on important business connected with
the road, and that when he returned to
St. Paul he would probably bring au
thority from European investors to
make a large number of investments.
One of these is said to be the relaying
of the main lines with the heaviest
steel. The Illinois Steel company is al
ready looking for an order from this
NEW COAST TARIFFS
Will Be of Benefit to Western Slope
The new transcontinental tariff
sheet adopted by the roads in con
ference at last week's meeting of the
Xorth Pacific coast lines is ready for
distribution among shippers, and the
tariffs will be sent out today.
The general results of the meeting
have already been printed in the
Globe. The lines interested were the
Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Can
adian Pacific, Union Pacific, Oregon
Railway & Navigation company, Bur
lington & Missouri River and the Soo.
The new tariffs were based on those
in effect upon the Southern Pacific, or
Sunset route from Atlantic seaboard
points to South Pacific points,
and were made for the purpose of
meeting the competition of the latter
line. The new tariffs wiil enable the
North Paciiic Cfrast business firms to
stard on a more equitable footing by
the side of those on the South Pacific
coast. The cause for the reduction by
the North Pacific lines are familiar to
The new tariff sheet comprises
thirty-six pages, and rates are shown
upon over 2,500 different commodities
from Atlantic points to the North
Pacific ce&st points. St. Paul and in
termediate territory as has been pre
viously stated, is not affected by the
cut. The eastern boundary line of the
territory affected is the Atlantic coast.
The western boundary practically is
a line drawn from, north to south
through Buffalo, N. V., running as far
south as Virginia and North Caro
. lina. The tariffs affect consignments
from the above territory to the fol
lowing terminals: via the Canadian
Pacific, to Seattle, Everett, Fairhaven,

Jacob W. Sowders, proprietor of a
cigar and news store at 114 East
Seventh street, killed himself at his
place of business yesterday noon by
shooting a bullet from a revolver into
his head. Sowders had gone at the
thing in a methodical and careful way
and intended thaj there should be no
failure. His assistant in the store,
Lenard Horton, went to dinner at 12
o'clock as was his usual practice. As
soon as he was gone Sowders locked
the front and rear doors and placing
a chair In a corner where he could
not be seen from the street, seated
himself in it. He placed the muzzle
of a 38 caliber Smith & "Wesson re
volver to the rigtht side of his head
and pulled the trigger. In placing the
chair in which he killed himself in
position he was careful to do it so that
he would not fall on the floor after
The suicide was not discovered until
1 o'clock when Norton came back from
dinner. He was surprised to find the
store locked and several customers
waiting at the door. Norton had left
his employer apparently in the best of
spirits and not for a moment imagin
ing anything of the kind unlocked the
door and entered the store, followed
by the customers. Seated on the chair
was Sowders, cold in death, with the
weapon which had ended his existence
grasped in his right hand. His head
was thrown back on the top of the
chair, and his staring eyes seemed to
be fixed on the ceiling of the room.
Patrolman Casey was notified of the
suicide and took possession of the
store until the arrival of Coroner
Whitcomb. A note found by that of
ficial under date of Nov. 4, read as
Mrs. J. W. Sowders: Let Harry, of the
Minnesota News company, have charge of the
store. He is the best man for you to trust.
— J. W, Sowders.
• P. S.— Don't fail to give the store to Harry
The body was removed to Dampler's
undertaking rooms, and, after an inves
tigation, the coroner decided an inquest
was unnecessary- Sowders had resided
in St. Paul for the past twenty years,
and for fifteen years has been engaged
in business here. He had a large circle
of friends and acquaintances, and was
well liked by those whom he came
in contact with. He leaves a wife and
daughter. The remains will be taken
to his late residence, 831 Agate street,
this morning but arrangements for the
funeral have not been completed.
The reason for the suicide which is
advanced by his friends is that he was
in ill health and this with the excite
ment incident to his interest in the
election, is thought to have unbalanced
his mind. His constitution never
strong, has been broken down by close
attention to business and his health was
made worse by worry and attention to
his daughter who has just recovered
from a severe attack of typhoid fever.
Henry R. Hardick, manager of the
Minnesota News company, who Sow
ders suggested should be given charge
of the business, will be appointed ad
ministrates of the estate. Seen last
evening, Mr. Hardick said he knew
nothing about the matter further than
he had been requested to take charge
of the estate and would do so. Mrs.
Sowders had sent word that she did not
want the safe and bocks examined
until she was present and her wishes
will be obeyed in this particular.

RUSSIANS WORSHIP A NEW SAINT.
His Remains Sal€l to Be Incorrupti
ble and Reverenced l»y the Or
What orthodox Russians regard as a
great event, and one which must have
a curious interest for Frenchmen has
just taken place at Chernigoff, a town
of about 30,000 inhabitants in South
Russia. It is described by the Moscow
correspondent of the London Standard
as the officially sanctioned 'invention
or the incorruptible remains of Arch
bishop Theodosius,' who died 200 years
The Russian Greek church, he says
recognizes, in addition to the various
forms of relics familiar to the Roman
Catholic faith, a symbol of higher sanc
"ty than any in the so-called "mosh
?/)k- a , word apparently signifying
(Divine) power." These "moshchi"
are to be found in all the principal
churches throughout the empire and
are the objects of especial veneration
to all pilgrims.
Every traveler in Russia will recall
having seen in the churches a number
of tombs, usually without lids, but cov
ered with glass, through which may be
discerned the figure of a man in rich
vestments and covered, as a rule from
head to foot. The hands are usually
folded on the bosom, and a portion of
the right hand, with a round spot the
size of a shilling on the forehead, are
left to appear through the coverings
for the devout to kiss as they murmur
their prayer to the sleeping saint that
he will intercede for them above
These are the "moshchi."
The Russian church teaches that very
holy men. during life, may become the
means of divine proof of the truth of
Christianity after death by the fact
that the corpses of such, however long
they have remained under ground and
notwithstanding the quality of the
earth in which they die, damp or dry
cold or heated, may, even if exposed
to the direct action of atmospheric in
fluence above ground, be divinely pre
served from any trace of corruption
The garments of the dead almost invar
iably, and the coffins sometimes, share
in this manifestation of indestructi
These "incorruptible remains" are
very numerous throughout Russia, but
of late years few of them have been
found, as vhe holy synod and the em
peror now cause more strict investi
gation to be made into the details of
each case than was the custom in
former days. For it Is not sufficient
that these remains should be found
after long periods of interment, incor
ruptible, but they must have manifest
ed wonder-working powers.
The usual order of things is for
some devout believer to see, generally
liL* 1 dream - the figure of a saint, who
bids him search for his (the saint's)
body in a certain place. The body is
taken up, and miracles, chiefly of the
healing kind, at once begin and are
carefully recorded, with such detail
and corroboration as seem proper to
the local church authorities on the
spot. After a longer or shorter lapse
of time the clergy made application
for the canonization of their saint and
formal sanction for the "invention"
of his "incorruptible remains" to the
holy synod, which, if the proofs and
miracles are considered satisfactory,
advise the emperor to accede to the
request. A day is then appointed and
preparations are made for the great
In the present instance the cere
monies lasted five days and drew over
a hundred thousand people to the little
town, which is a long distance from
any railway. A universal holiday for
a week was declared and two regi
ments of infantry, with two squad
rons of Cossacks, were dispatched to
the spot to prevent a possible recur
rence of the Moscow disaster. The
services concluded on Sept. 21, after a
day's prayer for preparatory services.
The "moshchi" was carried to the
cathedral at 8 o'clock in the evening,
through crowds of pilgrims, each of
whom bore a lighted taper. At the
same hour services were held and the
bells rung in the Moscow churches
and throughout Russia.
The Moscow papers report several
miraculous cures by the new saint
among the highest classes as well as
the peasant pilgrims. The saint now
lies in a silver sarcophague weighing
over 300 pounds and valued at $20,000.
This is only one of the numerous and
costly offerings which were dispatched
to Chernigoff for the great occasion.
The belief in these "incorruptible re
mains" is peculiar to the orthodox
Russian faith. The "old believers" and
other dissenting Russian sects reject
It and it is not held, for example, by
so nearly allied a faith as that of the
Armenians. It is scarcely necessary to
say that in these days not all. even of
the orthodox, give full credence to this
marvel, but the vast mass of the popu
lation are undoubtedly sincere in the
deep veneration they pay to these
extraordinary symbols of the czar's

For the Dog's Sake.
Stories of servants who rule a household
with iron hand are common, but a late res
ident of Northeast Washington acknowledge
that he regulates his domestic affairs with a
view to the accommodation of his favorite
dog, a very intelligent collie. So far did he
carry out this plan that when the neighbor
hood became rather warm for the dog as a
result of a canine disposition to bark before
people are out of bed, he forthwith moved
out of tcwn and is now happily located in
the suburbs, where his pet makes noise with
out fear of consequences. The individual
who was disturbed by the canine threatened
to shoot it if the "nuisance" continued, and
rather than risk the pet's life Its owner
readily agreed to move beyond the city's lim
Protecting the Admiral.
"While the company of which I was a
member were in Africa, we were surprised to
hear that an American man-of-war would
soon put in an appearance. It came, and
after cheering its flag, which was a pleasant
sight to us, we saw it was the Lancaster,
one of the old wooden ships of the past.
When we asked why on 9of the new iron
battle ships did not come the admiral said
that he was suffering very much from rheu
matism, and that the ircn ships were much
damper than the wooden ships, so much so
that he could not ride in an iron ship. This
was a new one on us, but the admiral was
very serious about it."
Snake Up a Tree.

Jeremiah Coyle, of Homesvllle, had an en
counter with a large black snake on the
mountain above Frog Hollow yesterday. He
was out for chestnuts, and started to climb
a tree laden with tempting-looking burrs.
Half-way up he was startled by seeing the
snake not three feet away, swinging to and
fro from a slender branch, and evidently pro
paring to spring. Coyle braced himself in a
notch of the tree, and hurled the hatchet he
carried at the swing reptile with deadly ac
curacy, severing the head from the writhing
