William Hon»n Says Leeen Lake
Indian* Are Starving*.
William Bongs, a member of the Chippewa
Indian tribe and formerly United States dep
uty marshal, was in the Twin Cities Friday,
lie had something to say about the destitute
condition of the Leech Lake Indians, claim
ing that they were starving and did not have
blankets or clothes enough to keep them
warm, an 1 a.< the weather had been unusually
severe the suffering was intense. The condi
tion is me that has never existed before, he
claims. The regular annuity was paid last
itoer, and the Indians, with their usual
re-klessness. (-.pent every cent as soon as they
could. It .ill went for whisky and gambling.
The allowance of blankets, shawls and
clothing v. as not forthcoming, and as the In
dians have DO money they cannot buy. In
addition the heavy fall of snow this winter
and cold weather prevents fishing and hunt
iner. and 'herefore they cannot supply them
selves with food. Several weeks ago an old
woman on Bear Island died of starving, and
there Is jjU-'h an amount of suffering that j
more may go the same way.
"There are about 1,000 Indians on the |
L°ech Lake reservation, well housed and i
with plenty of fuel, but food and clothing
are terribly scarce," said Bonga.

liiilii'linriil \u000at Him
The fine Italian hand of Charles F.
Haney is beginning to show itself in the
fight for the city comptrollership made
vacant by the election of Wallace G.
Nye to the office of treasurer. ThS
ex-city clerk is out after the comp
trollership in earnest, and to that end
a caucus of his friends in the city
council was held within the last forty
eight hours in the office of the water
works department at the city hall.
Doors were barred and sentinels kept
watch to preclude the possibility of any
of those without the "ring" learning of
the scheme which they were there dis
Prior to Mr. Haney's announcement
to his friends of his desire to capture
the city comptroller's office, plans had
already been laid for the election of
Assistant City Clerk Chapin. Votes
sufficient to elect him and to spare had
been pledged. They were not mere
promises, as they gc in such cases, but
were pledges that were to be relied
upon. They were made when Mr. Nye
was first elected to the office of city
treaorer, and renewed in the Repub
lican caucus held prior to the council
meeting Friday night, when the elec
tion of Mr. Nye was agreed upon. With
Haney out of the fight, therefore,
Chapin had almost a sure thing. This
fact was to be kept in the background
j and his election was to be very much
| of a surprise to those other candidates
I who thought, at least, they had a
'■ fighting chance.
Then came Mr. Haney. To the ex
; city clerk Chapin owes his present po
j sition, a very good one for so young a
1 man as Mr. Chapin is. What would
i be more natural, therefore, than that
Mr. Chapin should withdraw anl
throw what support he may have had
to his benefactor? And this is what
he has done. Chapin's sure thing hai
passed into the hands of Mr. Haney.
and the ex-city clerk has apparently
entered a winning race. If the prom
ises of support which Mr. Haney now
has count for anything; if the word of
the majority of the members of the
city council i 3 to b€ relied upon, Haney
will be elected Tiext Friday night to
the office of city comptroller with a
salary of $3,500 per annum. Thus, his
friends say, he will be vindicated.
THE BEST \O.\K TOO GOOD.
Gen. S. E. Oltton Is Adding
Always in advance of would-be com
petitors the Big Store has just, added
fivsh laurels by the presentation to the
people, without expense, of a most en
i tertaining and Instructive exhibition of
Thomas Edison's Vitasoope.
Gen. S. E. Olson decided long ago
that the best was none too good far
the people of Minneapolis, and all
customers of the Big Store are entitled
to the best results of his efforts. He
consulted with the representatives of
Thomas A. Edison while in New York,
recently, and the result was a visit to
the Big Store last week of some of Mr.
Edison's men with his latest creation,
the Vitascope. The machine was set
up on the second flocr, and the first en
tertainment was given Saturday morn
ing. All day and evening the crowds
clamored for admittance at the Big
Store, and they evinced the greatest
delight imaginable at the life-like rep
resentations shown by the machine.
The exhibitions consist of showing on
a white wall a series of photographs of
moving objects, produced at the rate
of forty in on>e second, so that the fig
ures actually move as though alive.
There are photographs of moving
trains, men, horses, vehicles of all
kinds, the waves of the ocean and Ni
agara Falls. Exhibitions have been
given by inferior machines in the
theaters, and the people paid an ad
mission price to see them. Gen. Olson
pays a large sum for the Vitascope,
and gives the exhibition free tc the
patrons of the -Big Store.
No admission fee is charged. Every
thing is free. The people are invited
whether they wish to purchase or not,
and they can remain as long as they
please to see the workings of the
wonderful machine. The exhibitions
axe given every fifteen minutes. A
lecturer explains the pictures as they
are run off and there is as much en
tertainment in it as though a half
dollar had been paid for admission.
There are seats for 200. The Vitascope
is located in the carpet department.
J. W. Mattern, of the Big Store, left
Friday evening for New Orleans, where
he will take In the Mardi Gras. He
has been sent there by Gen. Olson for
the purpose of gaining information and
ideas to be used during the carnival
to be held in Minneapolis next fall.
The Big Store deserves the thanks of
the people of Minneapolis for the inters
est it constantly takes in advancing
the interests of the people.
HMEY'S TRIAL MAY BE PIT OFF.
Hardly Probable That It Can He
The past week saw the last of the
December term calendar, as far as
civil jury cases are concerned, although
there are still a few court cases to be
heard before the work Is completed.
The jury is on duty, however, for th<*
purpose of disposing of the back casea
on the criminal calendar, and three
judges will be kept busy during th«*
week in the trial of criminal cases.
The grand jury will have no work to
do, and Mr. Peterson can devote hi*
time to the court rooms, with the result
that the three men. in the office of the
county attorney can each have a case
to dispose of, and they will rush the
cases as fast as possible. It is the
ambition of the county attorney to

his department, that when Jhe next
term opens there will be no petty
cases to be disposed of, and a fresh
start can be taken In criminal matters,
and the calendar kept clean, if possi
ble. Mr. Peterson thinks it can be
It Is doubtful if the alleged boodlo
cases can be disposed of this term.
Haney wants his case tried at once,
but Durnam and Drew and Oilman
are not anxious, and the county attor
ney wants to try them all, one after
the other, as the evidence all dove
tails in such a manner that the work
will be much easier. For that reason,
it is hardly probable that the cartf
of the state against Haney will be tried
Monday. Mr. Haney will object, but,
since he has already won one victory,
he can hardly make great complaint
against the court, or make any claim
that he is being singled out as a mark.
There is no doubt but what he is very
anxious to have his case tried, but
the climate of Minnesota is agreeing
with him, and he is rapidly recovering
from his illness. When last in court,
he looked quite well, and is gaining his

hundreds of dollars for the county,
and have left behind them four indict

tion as to conviction, at least with tho
petit juries, such as are selected un
der the present law. It is generally
come to be believed in official circles
that the investigation was a great
failure, and partially because the grand
jury did not go after evidence in
places where it could have been se
cured. It is urged that the jury kept
too straight to the aldermanic line,
and did not investigate other depart

In announcing his decision Judge Bei
den stated that the only argument
presented which had been considered
by the court as against the Indictment
had been that the indictment "did not
state facts constituting a public of

the court stated that a general charge
of the violation of law was not suf
ficient. There must be a specific eharg.?
or one must be implied from the gener
In the present case the city charter
clearly provided that the clerk must
keep all the city records, including all
bids. In consequence the coal bids re

through the clerk's hands. Of this fact
the indictment took not cognizance,
and in this respect the indictment is
considered by the two judges as fatally

Confectioner's Driver Has a Miraen.
A. J. Dunsmorre, a driver for A. EL Ives,
the confectioner, had a most remarkable ex
perience with a street car shortly after 5
0 clock this afternoon, in which he narrowly
escaped serious if not fatal injury.
He was driving up Washington avenue at
the time, and before reaching the viaduct
thought he would take Third street up. He
turned his horses across the street without
taking the precaution of looking back. A
Riverside car was coming along at the time,
and the motorman had no time to stop, as
the driver's turn was rather sharp. The
horses ntoS Just barely gotten across when
the collision occurred. How the young man
escaped so as to be able to tell the tale
appears to be a mystery. He is hardly able
to realize it himself. In a moment he felt
himself flying through ths air, after which
he was picked up in a stunned condition from
I the hard snow. As the motorman of the street
car turned on the brakes Immediately the
damage to the sleigh was not as great as
it might have been. The front runners were
I loosened in some manner, and the horses
took to their heels, and ran up Tenth avenue
They were subsequently caught at Sixth street
and Eighth avenue. Aside from a severe
fright, young Dunsmoore was uninjured, and
was able to assist in the picking up of
caramel drops and bon bons that were
spilled about in the neighborhood. The horses
were also found to be uninjured.
DOING A GREAT WORK.
Worklngrmcn'* Home Takes the
Place of Tramp Rooimh.
The police stations which have usually been
so crowded with homeless nion during the
cold snaps missed their old lodgers during
the recent cold snap. The central station,
which often used to harbor from seventy-five
to a hundred men was patronized to a very
small extent, and the Jailers were at a loss
to account fcr the sudden falling off in the
former popularity of the institution, until
they recollected that the worklngmen's home
was doing business. The opening of this insti
tution, which is similar to homes now being
coperated in most large cities is in the old
court house. It has certainly injured busi
ness at the stations.
J- C. Hoblitt, manager, said yesterday, that
125 men were housed and fed Friday "night.
He believes that the home will ultimately be
the means of teaching many men to be self
respecting and self-supporting. Men. he says,
who formerly sought shelter in the saloons
at night until the places closed, and who
were often led Into crime from such surround
ings, are becoming less of a menace to so
ciety now that a helping hand has been ex
tended to them.
YARDS OF MONEY.
1 niinie Prises to Be Awarded at the
One of the most interesting features of the
reunion of the Elks next July will be the
prizes and souvenirs of the occasion.
A great deal of money will be set aside for
prizes, not only by the local lodge but by
the commercial houses cf the city. And the
prizes will be an innovation in their line.
As a usual thing a prize is merely a sum of
money or a badge or medal, but next July the
crack drill corps of the visiting Elks will re
ceive rewards original and unique, as well
as valuable. It has been suggested that the
money prizes be awarded not in prosaic
checks or orders, but in yards and feet of
$10 note pasted together. For instance the
first prize in a certain line of work will be
three yards of $10 bills, end to end, of course,
not three yards tho narrow way. Another
prize will be a peck of nlckles, a quart of
dollars, etc. There will be nothing ancient
about the prizes, and the local Elks will try
to set a pace that will be followed In succeed
ing events of this kind.

LONDON, Feb. 27.— The action of the
volksraad as cabled from Johannes
burg in adopting a law by which any
judgment of the high court can be
annulled by the volksraad, rendering
all contracts and concessions unsafe,
has caused a great stir here. The mat
ter arose over a dispute between an
American engineer, R. F. Brown, and
the Transvaal government, with ref
erence to a mining claim which Brown
pegged out. The volksraad, at the in
stance of the government, passed a law
nullifying his claim. This law was
decided by the high court on Jan. 22
to be contrary to the constitution, and
Brown, who had sued the government
for a declaration of rights in his fa
vor, or, in default, demanding $5,000,000,
won his suit. President Kruger has
now procured from the volksraad a
law which prevents the judges from
overruling any statute on the ground
of unconstitutionally. The attorney
general has stated that the new law
will enable the volksraad to confiscatr?
property without compensation, and
his statement has caused consterna
tion in the Rand and has excited the
mining market. On the stock ex

stocks are throwing their shares on

It gives both Russia and Japan the
right to station a limited force in Corea
in case of necessity, and Russia re
serves the right to construct a tele
graph line from Seoul to the frontier.
It is added that Corea retains full lib
erty in home and foreign affairs. Both
Russia and Japan support the king-,

ish newspapers comment on the treaty
and declare that it virtually conse
crates the substitution of Russia for
China as the dominant power at Seoul.
Several prominent bimetallists whom
Senator Edward Wolcott, of Colorado,
saw prior to his departure from this
city, are convinced that he has done
splendid work in Europe. Among those
who conferred with Senator Wolcott
was L. J. Maxse, editor of the National
Review. Mr. Maxse occupies a high
literary and social position here, is
on terms of intimacy with the govern
ment leaders, and was in America dur
ing the recent political campaign. Re
plying to the request of the Associated
Press, Mr. Maxse writes:
"I have great difficulty in making
any statement on the bimetallic situ
ation in Europe. Not because it is dis
couraging, but for the opposite reason.
If I gave my real impression of the
result of Senator Wolcott's mission,
which was conducted with great tact
and abilrty, I should be accused of un
warrantable optimism. There has in
truth been a great change of opinion
in the trading and commercial nations
of Europe during- the last two years,
though this is but faintly reflected by
the press. lam convinced that If the
incoming administration follows Sen
ator Wolectt's inquiries with purpose
and determination, a satisfactory inter
national solution of the monetary ques
tion will make McKinley's presidency
not less famous than any of its prede
cessors. Europe looks to him for the
next move. John Bull does not block
A story from Nice is published, ac
cording to which society there is agi
tated by a scandal affecting an Aus
trian, Count Pechy, and a Chicagoan,
Arthur Barclay. It appears that dur
ing a game of baccarat at the Mediter
ranean club a dispute arose in the
course of which County Pechy remark
ed that "stupid Americans w*ho did
not understand the game should not
be allowed to play."
Mr. Barclay made a hot retort, for
which the committee of the club de
manded an apology from him. The
gentleman from Chicago consented to
apologize to the club, but he positive
ly refused to apologize to the count.
The latter, thereupon, challenged Mr.
Barclay, but the American's seconds
decided that their man ought to
apologize. In spite of this advice, the
American sent a personal letter to the
count, offering to flerht him to the death
with revolvers, without seconds, at a
distance not exceeding ten paces, and
also to make a side bet of 400 francs,
the survivor to take the stakes. Count
Pechy politely re-fused. The Mediter
ranean club has closed its doors to Mr.
Eddie Connolly, the American boxer,
