Special to the Globe.
FARGO, N. D., Nov. 10.— There is
hope for Kent. The telegram of Judge i
McConnel requesting Gov. Allin to |
commute Kent's sentence has resulted
111 the governor calling for McConnell's j
presence in Bismarck. The judge is .
at Sherbrooke, but it is expected he |
will take the midnight train for the |
capital where he will interview the |
governor tomorrow. The probable out
come of the interview is the theme
of conversation here, and the belief is
generally expressed that Sheriff
Barnes' necktie party will be indefi
i nitely postponed. Bishop Shanley has
returned from Bismarck, where he in
terviewed the governor in the interest
of the condemned man, stating his po
sition as an individual and asking care
ful consideration of the matter before
it was forever too late to save Kent's
life. This was followed up by a spe
cial telegram from Senator Hans
brough with the same request. Another
telegram on a different line was sent,
signed by Chairman Cooper, of the
state central Republican committee,
Hon. John P. Bray, Hon. Alex McKen
zie, Senator Haggart, Mayor Johnson
and a long list of Fargo people.
The news that the supreme court had
declined to grant a stay in the appeal !
was received by the condemned man
late this afternoon, but as he never
put much faith in the move, he ap
peared indifferent to the result. Kent
is quite hopeful that Gov. Allin will
commute his sentence on the request
of Judge McConnell. But still, at the
same time, he is very much affected
by the noise made by the workmen
constructing the scaffold and enclo
sure, and it is thought that a great
deal of the nerve which he has dis
played is leaving him. It has also a
bad effect on the other prisoners in
the jail, all of whom sympathize with
the condemned man and are of the j
opinion that he is Innocent of crime
and should not be hung for it.
Kent has been busy writing all day,
and it is believed he is preparing a
statement of his claims in the case.
Those who know Kent best look for an
elaborate statement on the gallows,
but no confession is expected. As the
time of execution draws near Kent's
hatred of those instrumental in bring
ing him to his present condition appar
ently grows more intense, and he has
furnished Sheriff Barnes with a list
of persons whom he wishes excluded
from his presence and from the execu
tion. Among them are Detectives Hoy
and Erlickman. of Minneapolis, and
H. G. Voss. W. P. Miller and R. N.
Stevens. Kent seems to have a par
ticular dislike for all newspaper men
and positively refuses to have any
thing to do with them. The only per
son in newspaper circles Kent will see
is Maj. Edwards, with whom he was
associated in a business way while in
Chicago years ago.
The work of erecting the enclosure
is completed. It is covered on top, so
no one can make use of the roofs of
the adjoining buildings. The walk
from the north door to the enclosure is
boarded up so the condemned man
cannot be seen by outside spectators.
The gallows is also erected with its
trap in place, and everything in readi
ness for execution. A strong stairway
has been built to the platform of the
gallows. The trap was tested this
morning, and the movement of the
lever which springs it will launch the
victim into the next world with start
ling rapidity. This evening Sheriff
Barnes tested the ropes, raising bags
of sand weighing 350 pounds. Heavy
weights have been tried on the ropes,
and they will be stretched until the
morning set for the execution.
NO LEGAL HOPE.
Application for a Stay Denied by
the Supreme Court.
Special to the Globe.
BISMARCK, N. D., Nov. 10.— Unless
Gov. All;n intefeies at the last moment
Myron R. Kent will hang at Fargo
Thursday; and from present indica
tions the governor will not interfere,
unless some good reason is put forth
for his arresting the execution. The
governor takes the position that he,
as executive, is sworn to enforce the
law and that he must be justified in
arresting its processes by some good
and sufficient reason tending to estab
lish doubt as to the guilt of the con
demned man. So far the governor says
no reasons have been advanced to Jus
tify the commutation of Kent's sen
tence. He has inquired into the pe
titions signed in favor of the commuta
tion and says the majority of the sign
ers applied for clemency out of a sen
timent of repugnance to the death
penalty. But the law has prescribed
the penalty, and the governor says he
cannot set it aside on sentimental
grounds. The letter of Judge McCon
nell advances no reasons why the sen
tence should be commuted, and it is
reported that McConnell will appear
in person before the governor tomor
row to make a request for clemency.
What reasons he will advance and
what effect it will have cannot be told
but it is safe to predict the governor
will not change his decision unless
a good reason is advanced other than
a simple request.
Before the supreme court today At
torney Hildreth, of Fargo, argued the
motion for an appeal and stay of cxc
cution. Hildreth contended that an ap
peal should be allowed because
Judge McConnell, the trial judge, did
not ask Kent at the time sentence waj
passed "if he had anything to say whj
sentence should not be pronounced,"
ps is customary in all criminal cases.
The attorney spoke for an hour and
was listened to attentively by the
judges. At 2 o'clock this afternoon the
court filed its decision denying the ap
plication which was Kent's last hope.
The text of the supreme court's deci
sion in the final appeal for a stay of
proceedings is as follows:
This is an original application made in this
court on tho tenth day of November, A. D.
1890, for a stay of execution. M. A. Hildreth
appearing in support of the application; no
one appearing in opposition thereto. It ap
-1 rears that after the judgment and sentence of

cused in the trial court and was subsequent

after the remitture embracing the record had

been submitted to the court below, that said
court, pursuant to sections 8,317 and 8,318 of
the revised codes, did on August 21, 1896,
by its order, fix a new time for carrying out
the sentence of the court, and by such order
directed that the sentence should be carried
out by the execution of the defendant, on the
twelfth day of November, A. D. 1596, between
the hours of 7 o'clock a. m. and 6 p. m., and
from which order it appears that the defen
dant has perfected an appeal to this court
under the provisions of subdivision 4 of sec
tion 8,328 of the revised code. The stay under
consideration is applied for pending the hear
ing of such appeal and is made upon the
ground that certain irregularities occurred in
the trial court in the matter of fixing a new
time fo the execution of the defendant. After
hearing counsel and upon due consideration it
is ordered that said application be denied
and the- same is hereby in all things denied.

Hanslirongh Says the Senate Will Be
FARGO, N. D., Nov. 10.— In an inter
view here this morning, and one which
will be published in his Devils Lake
paper as an editorial, Senator Hans
brough develops a new idea relative
to the support of the sound money
democrats of the McKinley policy, and
also administers a warm roast to
President Cleveland. The senator says:
"The senate will have a protection
tariff majority after March 4 next, and
this insures the repeal of the adva
lorem Wilson law and the passage of
a revenue measure framed along the
lines of republican doctrine. There will
be enough democrats in the senate
who will join the republicans to kill
any free silver amendments that may
be offered to the tariff bill which
will be sent to the senate by the house
after the extra session convenes. With
the free silver amendments disposed
of, the silver state republicans will
vote in favor of the tariff bill on its
"On the currency question, I do not
believe that any republican senator,
and I include those from the silver
states, will undertake to embarrass
the new administration. There is a
vast difference between McKinley and
Cleveland. The latter has seldom re
frained from an opportunity to insult
the two houses of congress. The con
temptuous manner in which he has
frequently referred to them has no
parallel in history. He has constantly
played the part of a bigot. McKinlev
is altogether a different man. He wiil
not seek to place the executive above
the legislative branch, or block the
avenues of legislation with his per
sonality. He is devoid of selfishness
and full of kind consideration of the
rights of others."

Senatorial Situation in Kentucky Is
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.— A special
dispatch from Frankfort, Ky., today
says that the candidacy of Gov. Brad
ley for the United States senate has
led the followers of his enemy, W. God
frey Hunter, also a Republican candi
date, to seek an alliance with the sound
money Democrats to elect Secretary
Carlisle. The election of Carlisle is
by no means impossible. While the Re
publicans have a majority of the legis
lature on joint ballot, it is an open
secret that one of their members is
pledged to Carlisle. The Bradley peo
ple say, however, . that if the Hunter
forces go to Carlisle, the Blackburn men
will vote for Bradley and elect him.
QUESTION OF RECIPROCITY.
People and Press of Canada Aire
MONTREAL, Que., Nov. 10.— The
statement made in New York
by Hon. W. S. Fielding,
Canadian finance minister, that
efforts will be made by the Ca
nadian government to secure a treaty
of reciprocity with the United States,
as soon as President-elect McKinlev
shall assume office at Washington, has
awakened tne greatest interest among
business men in Montreal and
throughout Canada. The commercial
interests of the Dominion, regardless
of politics, are almost a unit in favor
of a renewal of what is known as the
"Elgin" reciprocity treaty of 1854, and
it is believed that when the represent
atives of the Canadian government
visit Washington next spring, they will
endeavor to secure reciprocal legisla
tion along the lines of that treaty.

The chimes on the Minneapolis court
house may have cold tongue and be
voiceless, if they will, but St. Paul is
now reveling, mark the word, reveling,
in the first taste of an old-fashioned
winter. One of that kind that checked
its baggage on Nov. 10 and boarded
around among the cottagers till the
Ist of May or so. These were the kind
of winters that used to result in the
accumulation of picturesque piles of
ice, which were stormed with Roman
candles by rosy-cheeked lasses in red
toques and flannel skirts and loud
lunged men with their flannels. ' Eight
inches of snow in about thirty-six
hours is St. Paul's record to last
night, and when it is considered that
the snow is so heavy and wet that it
would have made a foot or more if it
had been of the usual fleecy variety
indigenous to this clime, it is somewhat
remarkable. It was ideal from the
urchin's standpoint. Snowballs of ex
quisite texture were molded from its
plastic mass, and many a youth, or
his small sister, received a presenta
tion where the chicken got the ax.
There was a general relaxation. School

THE HORSES HAD THEIR UPS AND
misses — well, not more than eighteen,
anyway — rolled each other in the snow
with rude recklessness that at any
other time would have made them all
blush, and children of even larger
growths turned out last night with
sleds and made the hill on Sixth street
from Summit down look like an etch
ing from the Nevski perspective.
From a utilitarian standpoint the
storm was not entirely agreeabe. It
nearly tied the street railway lines in
hard knots, although a liberal use of
snow plows on all the lines kept them
open and running regularly. People
who waited for the first flurry to let
up before clearing off the sidewalks
found that before the snow ceased
falling there had been packed down
upon the paths perhaps two inches of
frozen slush. One luckless individual
who had been caught without a snow
shovel was endeavoring to remove the
accumulated crystals on a board im
paled on a pitchfork from the barn.
The operation was crude, but partial
ly effective at least.
Down town streets were fit for sleigh
ing early, however, and some of the
teamsters hurried out their heaviest
sleds to take advantage of the visita
tion. One young man caused some en
tertainment in the vicinity of the cap
itol by appearing with a safety bicy
cle, the front wheel of which had been
superseded by a home-made runner.

shone last Tuesday, but the Bryan
men failed to see it. Notwithstanding
this fact, a great many people are tak
ing the situation very philosophically,
believing that the snow will be of
great advantage. It ;gives the ground
a good blanket before it freezes up,
thus preventing the frost going to a
great depth, and facilitating the pass
age of the melting snow into the soil
in the spring. Hence there will be

There are minor sufferers, like Capt.
Comiskey ; whose rink will have to be
built on stilts with a canopy top if the
storm keeps up. Commy had planned
a big opening for Thanksgiving day,
with red fire and such things. At
present the ice in Aurora park is not
very strong, in spite of the frosty re
ception the team got during the last
few games before it left home.
The storm was persistent all day jts
terday. Up to 7 o'clock Monday even
ing the snow fall had reached an av
erage depth of perhaps two inches, or
about .2 inches precipitation, accord
ing to the scale in use by the weather
bureau. All night, however, the snow
continued with more or less generosity,
and when the people of St. Paul looked
out yesterday morning they found
about four Inches or more on their
lawns and found street car service
somewhat irregular by reason of the
stick rails. The snow was so wet and
heavy that it was hard to move, and
left the rails so slippery that much
force was wasted in the operation of
the cars. Plows were out on all the
lines and were run all day and late
into the night.
Last night it was believed that the
snow, locally, was about done, or, at
least, that this morning would termi

covering the Mississippi valley quite
generally. The extreme southern por
tions, however, found it in the shape
of rain instead of snow. Its center
moved slowly toward the northeast all
day, the evident objective point being
the great lakes and Northern Ontario.
Wisconsin was the beneficiary of its
greatest efforts yesterday afternoon,
and it is expected that by this morn
ning it will be well into the wilds of
It is expected that the snow will be
followed by a fall of the mercury. Sub
zero temperatures were reported yes

to zero or not is problematical as yet.
The first skirmishes between the King
of Winter and the railroads for the
l'ght of way and a clear track com
menced in real earnest yesterday. The
fist day's fighting did not prove se
rious. None of the roads experience
serious inconvenience up to a late hour
jesterday afternoon, but at that time
there was some apprehension, owing
to the zero point before morning. Thi.3
means that the snow which has al
ready fallen will freeze in great ridges,
and that the new snow will be of tha^.
hard, flinty and fine character which
la the terror of railroad superintend
ents. If the weather grows materially
colder and the snow continues to fall
et the rate it did yesterday, it is likely
that the drifts will prevent the north
western roads from maintaining their
time schedule today .
The snow in Minneapolis and St. Paul
j esterday was wet and soggy. This
kind of snow does not materially affect
Ihe movement of trains, as it does no.
form in drifts. The roads to the south
Cfd southwest were not at all affected,
although the Chicago Great Western
train north bound was an hour late,
pratially owing to the storm. The
trains of the Wisconsin Central, the
Milwaukee, Northwestern, Minneapo
lis, & St. Louis, the St. Paul & Duluth
were generally on time.
The Northern Pacific's train into
Fortland yesterday was but twenty
minutes late, and the east bound train
was but thirteen minutes late, al
though the train had traversed som^
\ery cold territory. The Northern Pa
cific's territory seemed to get it harder
tlian that of the Great Northern, es
pecially in North I>akota and Souti-
Dakota. The Milwaukee also got a
dose of it. The weather reports of the
Northern Pacific yesterday give the
following temperatures: Mandan, 6 be

At Larimore it was also clear and

There was little snow at Melrose.
The Omaha reports showed that from

Cmaha City, and running north to the
head ot the lakes, there was from two

also over the entire eastern system of

In Omaha and to the south of that

Fairchild, engineer of train No. 1, was
instantly killed and his fireman, Frank
Walden, was seriously cut and bruised
in an accident three miles east of

a rock slide that had come down from
a high bluff near the track and had
blocked the way. The engine struck
the rock and was upset, falling upon
its right side. Fairchild went with it
and was crushed. The tender left the
track on the other side and took with

which were upset, and an emigrant
coach, which left the rails but did no*
tip over. The emigrant car waa
empty, and the men in the cars ahead
escaped without Injury. A wrecking
outfit was at once sent out from here,
and the track will be cleared by morn
ing. Many wild reports went out im
mediately after the accident, soma
placing the number of killed and
wounded at a high figure. Express
Messenger E. F. Goodhue was reported
missing, but has turned up all right.

Pacific could not be found last even

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov. 10.— J.
S. Coxey, of commonweal

r.nd telephone lines; municipal owner
ship of all street car lines, water works,
market houses, electric light and gas

friends of the initiative and referen

platform to be adopted in the parlor j
of the Lindell hotel, St. Louis, Jan
uary 12,1897. All who favor the prin •
ciples above set forth are urged to at

Kansas Populists Want Complete
Control of the State.
KANSAS CITY, Nov. 10.— The Journal,
printing a Topeka special under the caption
"A Gerrymander Plot," says:
"When the Kansas legislature convenes
this winter the first thing on the programme
after the election of a United States senator
to succeed Peffer is to push a congressional
district reapportionment bill through. The
plan of the democratic-populist members who
will control the legislature, is to divide tha
state into eight districts Instead of seven, as
at present, and to so arrange the districts aa
to make seven of them safely populist. Har
sighted politicians see in this an opportunity
of electing a populist senator to succeed
United States Senator Lucian Baker, thus
gaining both members of the senate and all
but one of the congressmen. The bill is said
to be even now in course of construction."
