National League Cup Series May Be
PITTSBURG. Pa., Oct. 12.— The Temple cup
Beries in the National league may be contested
no more. W. C. Temple, of Pittsburg, who
presented the magnificent silver trophy to

equal division of the receipts in face of the
league's explicit conditions about 60 per cent

PLAIN CASE OF BORROW.
Adam Lapp Cauitea Some Excitement
in Hln Household.
Adam Lapp, of 719 St. Peter street,
started out last Saturday to pay a debt
with some money he had borrowed
from his wife for that express purpose.
Failing to return himself, and also
failing to return the sum of $100, which
Mrs. Lapp insists is due her, sha called
at the county attorney's oflice yester
day, and stated her case.
According to Mrs. Lapp's story, her
husband told hor that he was indebted
to a certain secret order, to which he
belonged, in the sum of $200. and that
he must pay the amount to S. C. Olm
stt'ad, an attorney. Mrs. Lapp let Mr.
Lapp have a promissory note for $200,
payable to her, the note being signed by
a responsible physician. The last she
saw of her husband was on Saturday,
when he started out to pay his debt.
Alarmed at his failure to return, Mrs.
Lapp consulted Mr. Olmstead on Mon
day, and discovered that her husband's
indebtedness was only $100, and that
he had received from Mr. Olmstead in
exchange for the note, the sum of $111,
the additional $11 being the interest.
The assistant county attorney made
I the necessary memorandum upon
which to issue a warrant. But when
Mrs. Lapp returned to her home, who
should appear early in the evening but
her missing husband.
This does not seem, however, to have
helped matters materially. When a re
porter for the Globe called at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Lapp last night,
Mrs. Lapp was still in trouble. True,
her husband had come home, but she
had as yet seen nothing of the money.
To make matters still more unpleas
ant, a delegation from the Modern
Woodmen had call "to see." Mrs. Lapp
said that she and Mr. Lapp had been
married for over a year. He was her
second husband. The $211 was all the
money she had left out of $1,400 she
had received from Germany. She ex
plained that she had deposited $1,200 in
the Germania bank. Mr. Lapp was
a?ked for his version of the affair. He
finally declared that he had borrowed
$200 from his wife, and that was all
there was to it. He would pay it back
as soon as possible. Asked what or
ders he was a member of. he replied:
"I belong to the Modern Woodmen
and Sons of Hermann, but I won't be
long to either of them tomorrow."

Hough, the accused murderer of Jo

confessed his guilt last night in the
residence of Sheriff Barncard, in this
city. The boy, he is only nineteen
years old, having made up his mind

was brought to the sitting room. Here
he related in the presence of Sheriff
Barncard, Officers John Thorson and
M. A. McAndrews, E. K. Whiting and
Miss Winnie Barncard Ihe tale of his
deed. His story was drawn up in legal
form and signed by the prisoner and
the witnesses of his confession. The
prisoner, when brought into the room
from his cell, appeared in no wise trou

ly to be seen upon his face. He made
the statement confessing his guilt and
signed it without the least show of re
"I went up town Saturday night to
the Gedney restaurant at 6:20 o'clock
to get a lunch, and then went on up
town," he said in his confession. "I
went to the wagon where Clark was
at 11:40 o'clock. The lantern was light

the wagon. Before this I got a ham

Clark was lying on his right side on
the west side of the wagon. I hit him
once. .His watch and chain were in his
coat, which was hanging in the wagon.
I took them and looked in his pockets.
He had a $5 bill and $1.65 In silver. I
took the money and then put on my
two coats. I went down west of the
City hotel to the electric light house,
and then up the track to the depot
and inquired of the operator what time
the train went. He said there was one
in then, and going out I asked tv
brakeman if I could ride with him. He
said I could, and I rode to St. Paul

about and hour and a half. I found

TWO BANK DECISIONS.
Botli Aeainat the Assignee of an
REDWOOD FALLS. Minn., Oct. 12.—
Two decisions of more than ordinary
interest to those connected with ln-
I solvent banks have just been filed by
Judge Webber, of this district. A short
time before the Citizens' bank, of this
city, closed its doors, in 1895, H. Q.
Schmahl, the sole surviving partner
of the firm of C. A. Francois & Co.,
which concern did an extensive busi
ness with the bank, requested of the
cashier that the latter put up a cer
tain amount of collateral to insure the
payment of the funds of the firm that
might be in the bank from time to
time. The cashier, accordingly, turned
over $1,647.24 in notes for that purpose,
and when the bank failed the firm had
about $900 in the institution. The firm
at once commenced realizing on the
notes to make the account good, and
suit was immediately brought by the
Northern Trust company, as assignee,
asking that the firm turn over the
notes, or their value. Judge Webber
holds that the pledge of the bank was
valid, and orders judgment, with costs,
against the assignee of the bank.
The other case was that of Sylvester
Davis again-st the assignee of the
benk. On Jan. 26, 1895, Mr. Davis had
$1,995 on deposit there, and he secured
collateral note pledges from Mr. Tur
rell, to the amount of $1,671.10 and in
terest on them. Instead of putting the
notes in his pocket, Mr. Davis allowed
I Mr. Turrell to place the notes in an
envelope, mark the same "Private Pa
pers for Mr. Davis," and place tlfem in
the bank vault. When the bank sus-
pended. the assigriee seized the collat
eral so labeled. Kir. Davis sued to re
cover, and Judge Webber holds the as
signee must turn over the notes, with
their interest, and also pay Mr. Davis
costs and disbursements of the action.
SOLO TO A SYNDICATE.
Two Milllofnt) Paid for a Big Plant
RACINE, Wis., Oct. 12.— A deal has
juat been consummated, transferring
the big plant of the J. I. Case Thresh
ing- Machine comparry : io a syndicate
of Eastern eapifcallstfe. The purchase
price is said tof be >$2,000,000. Several
weeks ago an offer was made for the
plant and the stockholders were given
until last night to accept. Yesterday
afternoon a telegram came from
Charles B. Lee, who is on his way home
from Europe, and who represents the
J. I. Case estate and the estate of M.
B. Eraskine, accepting the proposition.
A meeting was lifeHl last night and the
Eastern capitalists -were represented by
John T. Fish, of Milwaukee. Thomas
W. Spence represented the stockholders
and the transfer was made. For a* long
time there has:^>een considerable dis
cord among the stockholders and sev
eral changes have recently been made
in the management. Stockholders held
their interest at $4,000,000, but accepted
the proposition knowing that something

Ei-Uot. Stoics Repudiates the Chi
DES MOINES, Oct. 12. — Ex-Gov.
Boies has written a letter to the Lead
er upon the subject of "Bullion As a
Basis of National Currency." At the
outset he asks the questions, "Gold and
silver bullion for money; is it prac
ticable? Can they be made an invari
able double standard for the measure
ment of values?" He answers these
questions in the affirmative, and says
that Mr. Windom suggested the basis
of the plan which he elaborates. He
concludes his letter thus: "It is said
no plan of that character would be in
accord with the Chicago platform.
That is true. But the Chicago plat
form has had its day in court before
the tribunal of la&t resort. Must Dem
ocrats to be loyal adhere to it forever?
The objection is at variance with the
whole theory of our form of govern
ment. If valid election would settle
nothing, majorities would cease to rule,
and when a political issue was once
joined the warfare over it would go on
until one or the other of the parties to
it was totally annihilated."

Chief of Detectives Will Hot Heply
toi Goss' Attack.
Friends of Chief of Detectives
Schweitzer were astounded yesterday
when they read of the attack of Chief
of Police Goss upon the detective de
partment In general and Chief Schweit
zer in particular. They termed it a
mean subterfuge oh the part of Chief
Goss to "square" himself with the
mayor. It was the general opinion that
the report that Chief Goss had been
called down by Mayor Doran and
sought to excuse himself by placing
the responsibility for the "yellow"
work of the police department. Chief
Schweitzer was seen by a reporter for
the Globe last evening and inter
rogated concerning the attitude of
Chief Goss, but refused to discuss th<*
"Do you consider it just that Chief
Goss, with his meager police experi

Chief Schweitzer smiled.

"They are straight, but, if there were
two more detectives, this branch of the
department could work to better ad

that much important work must be
accomplished with but few men."

Chief Goss may say?"

FROM CELLAR TO GARRET.
Burglars Ransacked the Hinkens
The family of J. W. Hinkens, living
at 169 Genesee street, was absent Mon
day night, but the house was tenanted,
nevertheless, and when the transients
left they carried away nearly $200
worth of property, consisting of silver
table ware, clothing, furs and jewelry.
The burglars did not leave their cards,
but the condition of the house when
the robbery was discovered yesterday
left no doubt as to the character of
the unwelcome visitors. From top to
bottom it resembled the track of a
Kansas cyclone. Every room had been
thoroughly ransacked and the contents
thrown about in reckless confusion.
Not the smallest possible receptacle of
valuables, from collar boxes to bu
reaus and china closet, escaped rum
maging, everywhere evidencing the
fact that the housebreakers had doubt
less spent most of the night in a sys
tematic search of the place.
The opportunity for a successful rob
bery was doubtless known to the
thieves, as Mr. Hinkens, who is the
bookkeeper at the Capital bank, is out
of town on a hunting trip, and his
wife, with her two children, fearing
to spend the night in the house alone,
has been sleeping at the home of her
father-in-law, George W. Hinkens, at
780 Cedar street. Mrs. Hinkens left
her home shortly after 9 o'clock Mon
day evening, and it is thought the
burglars watched her departure, and
forced an entrance shortly afterward.
The thieves first cut the screen from
a cellar window on one side of the
house, but, finding the casement
locked, performed the same operation
at another window, through which
they gained an entrance. The door
leading to. the upper part of the house
was locked, but, with the ever-handy
"jimmy," the frame was shattered
and the bolt forced out of place, when
the robbers proceeded to literally tear
things up side down. In the dining
room closet they secured a dozen sil
ver knives and forks, half a dozen sil
ver teaspoons, a gold-lined sugar
spoon and two silver butter knives,
prying open drawers and doors with
out the slightest fear of interruption.
In an adjoining bedroom Mrs. Hin
ken's gold bracelets were added to the
plunder, and from the parlor a num
ber of articles of bric-a-brac were se
cured. Up stairs the thieves contin
ued their careful search. Here a fur
cape belonging to Mrs. Hinkens and
also a similar garment of her little
girl's was taken, and Mr. Hinken's
best trousers, a cloth cloak, several
children's dresses and two patterns of
dress goods. To insure a speedy de
parture if discovered, the burglars un
locked both the front and rear doors
before beginning their operations, and,
when the milk man called yesterday
morning, the disordered appearance
of the kitchen led to the discovery of
SIG\ BOARD IX DISPITE.
L. K. Scott Explain** tbe Trouble I
'With the Sherer Company.
There is trouble between the Scott-
Gunning Advertising company and the
Sherer Sign Company, of Minneapolis.
Both are extensive advertising agents
and have erected rival sign boards the
length of University avenue between
the two cities. Some time ago the
Scott-Gunning company put up a twen
ty-five-foot board at University and
Lexington avenues. Shortly afterward
the Sherer company erected a fifty-foot
sign in front of it. The Scott-Gunning
people took their rival's sign down one
night and the next night their boards
were razed. The next day up went
the Scott sign again and once more on
the following night it was taken down
by the Sherer people. Both signs are
at present flat on the vacant lot where
the battle is being waged.
The trouble arises over a disagree
ment between the two companies re
garding the right to the site where the
signs were put up, both claiming the
title to the ground. L. N. Scott, speak
ing of the matter last evening said:
'■That property belongs to me and I
Intend to enforce my rights. Some time
ago Mr. Sherer entered into an agree
ment with me whereby I was given the
right to the property which he had first
secured. It was a verbal agreement
and I told him when I received the con
tract regarding the matter I would pay
him the money involved. He promised
to send me the contract, but failed to
do so. He allowed me to take pos
session of the property, however, and !
I have proffered him the remuneration. I
The Scott-Gunning sign was put up
with his knowledge and his sign after
ward erected in front of it was taken
down by my direction. There is no
malice nor personal antagonism in my
course whatever. It does not concern
me how many signs the Sherer corn-,
pany puts up, either here or in Minne
apolis, but I consider Mr. Sherer made
a valid contract w.ith me and I intend
to enforce it within the law. To this
end I today applied for a temporary
injunction whereby the matter will be
ROB A LAMPLIGHTER.
Jacob Frees Held Ip in the Early
Jacob Frees, a lamplighter living at i
213 Rondo street, was held up by a
pair of thugs shortly after 6 o'clock
last evening. The footpads seized the i
young man at Ninth and Exchange i
streets, while he was making the !
rounds of the lamps in his care, and, i
subjecting him to the "strong arm" :
process, searched his pockets for mon- <
ey. One of the thugs throttled Frees
so that he could not call for help,
while his companion did the searching.
The young man had no money with
him, at which the footpads cursed him
roundly, and, not to be wholly disap
pointed, tore his lamplighter from his
hand and disappeared down an alley.
The hold-up was particularly bold, as
pedestrians going home from work
passed in number's near the scene of
the attempted robbery, but were not
attracted by the unusual proceedings.
The affair was reported to the police,
together with a description of the per
petrators, one of whom was a~ short
thick-set man, while the other was tall
and of a slender build. Both wore ul
ster overcoats and slouch hats.

TASTE OF CITY LIFE.
Joseph Johnson, From the Country,
Has a Lively Mgbt.
Joseph Johnson, a young harvest
hand, who hag just arrived in town
from North Dakota, experienced a
phase of life in St. Paul at the Palm
Garden saloon last night. In other
words, Mr. Johnson ran against a trio
of young men who assaulted him with
out cause, as he thought, because he
had never seen them before in his life.
He had gone into the closet, when
three men, who had followed close be
hind him, entered and the first thing
Johnson knew, he says, one of them
struck him in the mouth. Before he
could express his surprise, another
man hit him in the nose, while a third
grabbed his coat and spread it open.
But Johnson is a husky lad of twenty
two, and quickly pushing the men
aside, he rushed out of the closet,
dragging two of his assailants with
him. Then Johnson became the ag
gressor and went after the others. In
an instant the whole place was in an
uproar. The waiters attempted to stop
the fight, while seme one went after
a policeman. They found one in the
person of Officer Carey, who lost no
time in arriving on the scene. He at
once put a stop to the row, and placed
Johnson's assailants under arrest.
Johnson also enjoyed a ride to the cen
tral station, as it was thought best to
detain him as witness.
The men who assaulted Johnson are
all over thirty years of age. They
gave the following names: F. W. Rog
ers, C. Winston and Mike Peterson, and
said they were laborers. Officer Carey
charged them with disorderly conduct
Johnson is an awkward country lad
of the most unsophisticated type. He
says his home is in Keeler, Grant coun
ty, Wis., but that he came to St. Paul
yesterday from Bartlett, N. D., where
he has been at work harvesting. His
story of what happened, as he told it.
is substantially as related. He said
that he was sitting at a table drinking
with a friend, and that he did not at
the time see the men who afterwards
assaulted him. He and his friend went
to the closet and the door had hardly
closed on them before somebody else
entered, and the mix-up followed.
Asked If he had any money with him,
Johnson said he had some small
change in his trousers pocket, and $30
in his overalls, most of which was still
there. The prisoners were all released
on bail. They say the scrimmage was
half playful and grew out of an argu
ment started over a card one of the

"SOMETHING FOR SILVER."
Vigorous Protest Voiced by <h«»
LONDON, Oct. 13.— The Daily Chron
icle today, mentioning the rumor that
the government "intends to do some
thing for silver not involving the open
ing of the Indian mints; but involving
a conference which the English dele
gates would attend with a free hand,"
asks editorially: "Are we to be plunged
into an acute and dangerous con
troversy over the currency problem? Is
this a time for the foremost financial
center of Christendom to revert to the
stage from which other states are seek
ing to rise? We protest against any
such action merely to oblige the Unit
ed States, who do nothing to oblige us."

No one can realize the terrible suffering a
person has to u ndergo who has diseased nerves.
Everything seems to irritate him, and actually,
everything considered, bat little sympathy
should be extended to such a sufferer, as there
is no excuse for the existence of this dreadful
and harrassing disease. With pure blood, and
the stomach in perfect condition, and with the
other organs of the body working properly,
health alone can be the result, and with health,
nerves are forgotten. Keep the great vital
organs of the body healthy, and the result is, a
perfect appetite, nights of' refreshing and quiet
sleep and a body that is strong and robust.
Kickapoo Indian Sagwa is the one and only
great remedy for weak and diseased nerves. One

EXPERT IX THE LIETCERT CASE
BADLY HANDLED BY MR.
FIRST ADDRESS FINISHED,
THE TURN OP THE ATTORXEV9
FOR THE SAUSAGE MAKER
LOOKED ON WITH SAVAGE SCOWL.
Eye* of the Prisoner Scarcely
Taken From the Face of the
CHICAGO, Oct. 12.— Assistant State's
Attorney McEwen finished his argu
ment in the Luetgert trial today, and
will be followed tomorrow by Attor
ney Phalen, who will make the open
ing address for the defense. Mr. Mc-
Ewen took up the entire day with his
argument and went over the case care
fully, connecting the details of the
evidence for the jury and showing how
cne circumstance fitted into another
and how the mass cf evidence submit
ted by the state furnished in his opin
ion a full and complete circumstantial
chain proving that Luotgert had mur
dered his wife in order that his rela
tions with his servant girl, Mary Slem
mering, might remain undisturbed.
Throughout the entire arraignment
Luetgert listened to the speech of the
attorney who was asking for his life
with the greatest attention. He never
tcok his eyes off of Mr. McEwen for
more than an instant, and the heavy
scowl that Is habitual with him deep
ened as the assistant state's attorney
pointed out circumstance after circum
stance that weighed against his inno
cence. It is now practically certain
that all of the arguments will be fin
ished so that the case will be given
to the jury by Saturday night at the
Assistant State's Attorney McEwen
this morning took up the subject of
aesamoids. This soon brought him to
a consideration of the evidence of Dr.
W. H. Allport, chief osteological expert
for the defense. Rarely is a witness
handled with the biting sarcasm and
scornful denunciation that was heaped
upon this celebrated expert. "He came
upon the witness stand with all the
arrogance and self-assurance of a bul
ly," shouted the speaker, "and left it
as meek and lowly as any being who
ever entered this building. He exposed
to the medical profession in open court
his ignorance, and made himself the
laughing stock of experts the world
The mistakes Dr. Allport is alleged
to have made in Identifying different
bones were enumerated, discussed and
ridiculed in the most cutting manner
at the speaker's command.
"And this is the man whom the de
fense asks you to believe with refer
ence to the identification of the .bones
placed before you in evidence in this
case," observed Assistant State's Attor
During the afternoon session of court
Mr. McEwen devoted a considerable
portion of his time to the gold rings
found in the middle vat in Luetgert's
sausage factory. These he styled "the
indestructible and shining evidence of
guilt." "The purest metal known to
man," he said, "had come forth from
that vat untarnished to fasten upon
the guilty person the responsibility for
one of the most hideous and cruel
crimes modern times has produced."
Then the speaker 3hifted to the evi
dence of the bone experts and dissected
it skillfully, pointing out what he con
sidered the weaknesses and inconsis
tencies In the stories and identifications
made -by each. He reviewed the cir
cumstances in the case from the date
of Mrs. Luetgert's disappearance up tc
the present date. Each development
was recalled and fitted together in a
logical manner. The speaker suddenly
reached the descriptive climax by ex
"There, gentlemen of the jury, you
have the complete foundation and
structure of this case. The chain of
facts is connected. The links natural
ly coil around this defendant and fix
his guilt as plainly and as indisputably
as it is possible to fix guilt."
Hour after hour the assistant state's
attorney continued to discuss the evi
dence in the case and to comment upon
the conduct of Luetgert and Mary
Slemmering, both before and after the
disappearance of Mrs. Luetgert.
Ex-Judge Vincent was a close listen
er, as was also Attorney Phalen. who
occasionally made notes on the speech.
Tomorrow, Attorney Phalen will open
for the defense. He will speak all day
and possibly part of Thursday. Then
ex-Judge Vincent will speak a day and
a half in closing for the defense. State's
Attorney Deneen. who is a remarkably
rapid speaker, will close the case on
Saturday, speaking the entire day.
