The committee appointed to make
;in arrangement with the employers re
i that they had made satisfactory
arrangement for the coming year. A
c« mmittee of the union visited the shops
at Still water, and as a result wages have
been raised from $2.25 to $2.75 a day to
the satisfaction of the employers. John
Hacked, a member of the union, who has
had an operation performed at the hos
pital, was reported sufficiently recovered
to be removed to his home. Thomas
Malaley and William O'Conner, who have
on the sick list, are reported as
recovering. Thomas Holland, an old and
popular member of the union, having
1 uken unto himself a wife, it was but
natural that the members of the union
would feel interested, and,- accordingly,
congratulated him on the event and wish
ed him all joys in his new form of life.
Mr. Holland appreciated their kind
wishes, and responded by ordering cigars.
A communication was received from the
International union, in which it was stat
ed that there was no trouble in sight for
the spring, as all employers had signed
the scale, in some cases with a voluntary
advance, and that business was good
throughout the country. A donation was
made to two aged members of the union
in Salt Lake City. A committee was ap
pointed to prepare a complete list pt the
members of the union. In future any
member of the union being absent from,

International Cigrnnnnkerti Report.
Report of the financial transactions of
the International Cigarmakers union for
the year 1900 has Just been made through
tho fiduciary officers of the organization,
and in many respects the report is wor
thy the careful study of workers gener
ally. The funds handled for the twelve
months aggregated more than $1,000,000,
and the integrity of the official adminis
tration is best displayed by tho exhibit
of a financial loss of less than $200 In
thousands of accounts. The sum of $137,
--823 was paid in strike benefits, which
was the largest sum disbursed under
that head in the union's history, save in
the year 1884, when the total was slight
ly larger. New York, which has been
the scene of a protracted strike drew
$112,000, while Dayton, 0., absorbed $14.
--000, and $8,000 went to Tampa, Fla. In
additori to the $137,823 r<ald for strike ben
efits, the sum of $272,851 was paid out for
other benefits during the year. Notwith
standing this large drain, the general
fund of the organization Increased more
than $222,003, with total outstanding loans
to members of $75,000. Tho gTand total
recorded payments of benefits since th«
adoption of the system in 1879 Is almost
?;>,'.«), 000. These have been rendered pos
sible by wise management and a spirit
of great loyalty in the membership. The
total expense per day for each member
is 5 cents paid for dues. This supplies
all the various funds, such as sick, trav
eling, deatjj benefits, strike, etc. with
needed resources. The cigarmakers are
gaining rapidly in membership, and their
organization is aa healthy physically as
it is financially.

C. A. Morey who was injured by falling
down stalra at the capitol buildin? Fri
day morning, was somewhat improved in
condition yesterday. At St. Joseph's
hospital, last evening, it was said that
Mr. Morey's chances for recovery ara
better than eVer. He was consclou*
the greater part of the day and several
times conversed with the attending
physicians and members of his family.
The partial paralysis from which he
suffered Friday Is much diminished and
leads the physicians to believe that if
the concussion of the brain which he
sustained has resulted in hemmorha?e,
that the hemmorhage is disappearing and
will in all probability cause no further
danger. That his fall resulted from a
touch of paralysis is doubtful.
Mr. Morey"s family physician, Dr. Mc-
Gaughey, of Winona, is In constant at
tendance, in consultation with Drs. Me-
Davitt and Davis, of this city. Dr. Mills
paugh, president of the Winona normal
school was a visitor at Mr. Morey's bed
side for a few minutes yesterday after
noon. In speaking of the latter's con
dition afterwards Dr. Miilspaugh ex
pressed much hope for his recovery.
Beyond the members of the family and
the attendants, no visitors are admitted
to the patient's room. Absolute quiet
is required by the physicians. If the
present improvement continues there will
be no operation. So far beef nourish
ment is the only stimulant that has been

She was starving to death, for every

BOYS DISCOVER BODY OF LEONARD
- WALTER IN WOODS NEAR.
BULLET THROUGH HIS BRAIN
No Reason As*ljL;iietl for Suicide
Two Women WTio Saw Body
Did Not Report It to
While walking through the woods near
Cherokee avenue and Baker streets,
shortly after 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon, James Wright and Alfred West,
two boys, stumbled over the body of a
dead man. Grasped in one hand wa3 a
revolver, in the other a mirror, and
blood was oozing from the right temple.
The boys notified the police and Coroner
Miller arrived on the scene shortly after
and ordered the body removed to the
county morgue. Later In the afternoon
the remains were identified as those of
Leonard M. Walter, who is a stepson
of John Ludwlg, saloonkeeper at 69 West
Seventh street, and lived with his grand
parents at 361 Colbourne avenue.
Walter was born in Germany in 1875.
When eight years old he came with his"
parents to St. Paul. For the past three |
years he has been employed as a clerk I
at Theobald's liquor store, 3SB West Third
street. He was unmarriid and a man of
exceptionally good habits. His suicide
came as a shock to his relatives and
friends and no reason other than a slig'nt
illness from which he suffered for the
past year, can be assigned.
It was reported to the police that two
women were seen at thu place
Walter died, shortly before his body was
found. An attempt was made by the
Ducas street police to find these women,
but they could not be located. It is not
understood why they did not report the
case as they must have seen ithe body.
Thursday Walter complained of feeling
badly and did not work Friday and yea
terday. Yesterday morning he bought
seme new clothing, went to a barbor,
was shaved and had a haircut. At about
1 o'clock he was seen near the woods
where he committed suicide. From the
position in which he was found St seems
that he laid down on the- ground, placed
the muzzle of the revolver to the fatal
spot with the aid cf a hand mirror, and
holding It so closely to his temple that
his face was burned by the powder, f.red.
He died instantly.
