Politics in the kidnaping
CONSTANTINOPLE, Feb. 23.—Miss
Ellen M. Stone, the American missionary,
•who, with iume. Tsilka, was captured by
brigands in me district of Salonika Sept.
3 last, has been released and arrived at
Strumitza, Macedonia, at 3 o'clock this
morning.
Nobody was at Strumitza to meet Miss
Stone as the brigands had given no indi
cation where they proposed to release the
prisoners.
Mme. Tsilka and her baby were also
released at the same time. They are all
well.
Mir« Stone immediately made herseli
known to the authorities at Strumitza.
Tn..- first news of Miss Stone's release
was contained" in a telegram received by
llr. Dickinson, the American consul gen
eral at" Constantinople, from the Ameri
can vice consul at Salonika. The tele
gram gives no details of the release. ;
As Strumitza is near the Salonika-Us
kub railroad. Miss Stone will proceed to
Salonika without delay.
BOSTON, Feb. 23.—Secretary Barton, ol
the American board, has received the fol
lowing cablegram confirmatory of tne
dispatch announcing the release of Miss
Stone. It was dated Salonika and is un
signed:
■ "Both Miss Stone, and Mme. Tsilka and
child released from confinement in good
physical condition and good spirits." ;
Secretary Bar regards this news -as
absolutely authentic, as the missionaries
of the board had been given instructions
to send no cablegrams based on mere
reports, but to wait until po:itive inform
ation could be given.
Dr. Judson Smitn, one of the secretaries
of the American board, called at the resi
dence of Mrs. Benj. P. Stone, mother of
Miss Stone, in Chelsea this anernoon,
bringing a cablegram dated Salonika,
Feb. 23, containing the cne word "Safe,"
signed "Haskell." .
Dr. Smith understands this dispatch to
indicate that Miss Stone, * : Mme. Tsilka
and the latter's baby have been' delivered
into the hands; of the American 1- repre
sentative* in "Macedonia. The cablegram
is from Edward B. Haskell, one 'Ct the
m:ssionaries of the American board sta-
ned at Salonika.
SEES PATRIOTISM IN KIDNAPING.
Returning Diplomat Gives New Vrr
sion of Miss Stone's Trouble.
NEW. YORK, Feb. 23.—Spencer Eddy,
first secretary of the United States lega
ticn at Constantinople,: who had charge
of negotiations for the release of Miss
Ellen M. Stone and Mme. Tsilka, arrived
here today, an the Kronprinz Wilhelm.
In an interview he said the brigands cap
tured an American in preference to any
other missionary, because they '.lieved
the Americans would pay the largest
ransom. -..
"Did the brigands want the money for
themselves?" was asked of Mr. Eddy.
"No, they did not, and that is where
the people in America do net understand
the case. It is entirely a political matter
and all the people in Macedonia are in
sympathy with the kidnaping, for they
believe it is a step toward freeing Juace
donia from Turkish rule, the same as
Bulgaria has been freed, and the $100,000
they demanded was .'"tended for the
■ Macedonian cause.
"If we had been dealing witn the pro
fessional brigands who wanted money
pure and simple, instead of the political
brigand®,. Miss Stone would have been
released long ago."
"Dv the Macedonians have any feeling
of enmity towards the missionaries?'
• i>o. They are rather friendly to them
than otherwise. They desired to attract
the attention of the world to the!r cause
and incidentally to secure needed money.
I have every reason to believe they have
given Miss Stone and companion in cap
tivity the best of treatment."
"I have had five letters from Miss Stone
written in Bulgarian so her captors could
read them and they were masterpieces in
cleverness and diplomacy. Miss Stone is a
very courageous woman."
"Will not Turkey attempt to punish the
ringleaders?"
""Turkey will have a problem on her
hands if she does for the Macedonians
have risen up as one man in their deter
mination to be freed from xurkey and
this kidnaping of the two American mis
sionaries may be called chapter one in
their plan for securing liberty."

Strong Condenrnation of Alaskan
Jurist, Who Is Charged With
Failing in Duty by the At
• .-, torney General. "'•-
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.-Attorney
General Knox has delivered to the presi
dent his findings in the matter of the
charges filed against Arthur H Noyes
judge of the second division of 'the
United States district court for Alaska.
The charges are incempetency and cor
ruption, although, the attorney general
says, the charge of dishonesty was not
pressed. After reviewing the case at
length the attorney general concludes his
report as follows:
"After review of this Nome litigation,
cut of which has sprung so much com
plaint, bitterness and public scandal it
remains that the actual consequences of
these proceedings in the Alaska
district court were to bring that
couit into disrespect ant to im
paar public confidence in its wise
and imparual administration of justice.
In view of the foregoing, and after the
most careful consideration, I nave con
cluded:
"First—That the appointment of a re
ceiver in the eases referred to, without
notice to the defendants, and the refusal
upon hearing, to discharge the receiver,
and the consequent dispossession of the
defendants of their property, were not!
justified under the facts, the pleadings
and the principles of equity.
"Second—That there is no justification
shown for the refusal by judge Noye* to
settle a bill of exceptions at the instance
of the defendants, and for the refusal to!
allow them an appeal.
"Third—That after an appeal had been
allowed by the circuit court of appeals'
and the writ of supersedeas had been
served upon Judge Noyes, the plaintiffs!
and the receiver, Judge Noyes' attitude
toward the writ was one of hostility and
obstruction, which was totally inconsist
ent with his* judicial duty towards a su
perior court and toward the 1 .igarits
seeking through that court reversal of his
judicial action.
"Fourth-That Judge Noyes should!
forthwith be removed from office."
The president w.ll approve these find
ings and promptly aismiss Judge Noyes
from office.
PRICE UP IN MILLIONS
SENATOR W. A. CLARK SELLS MON
TANA MINES TO RIVAL
Transfer Pnts an End to Notable Lit
igation, and All Intersecting
A Teins Come t'nder One
Control.
Special to The Globe.
BUTTE, Mont., Feb. 23.-United States
Senator W. A. Clark has sold his Obiusa-
Parrot group of mines to the AmaTgi
mated or Anaconda comparty. The con
sideration is withheld from' the pnbV.e
but the price is understood to be i-i the
millions.
The purchase by the Amalgamated
company was made as a settlement of
litigation. The Great Anaconda code
was involved in the. controversy, it hav
ing been demonstrated that there was a
union between that vein and the Uolusa-
Parrot vein at a depth of about WO feet
below the surface of the Colusa-Parrot,
and the latter having been the prior loca
tion, Clark's company claimed the owner
ship of the vein after tire point of junc
tion. At the trial of the case the Ana
conda, company advanced a theory that
■there was a third vein, called the diag
onal or blue vein, which cut the Ana
conda vein and caused the union of veins
by what is termed in mining a fault r.r
slip in the earth, and that in fact there
was no union. Judge Knowles, of the
United States court, accepted that virw
of the case and decided the case in fay r i
of the Anaconda company.
There was developed at the trial the
fact that the Anaconda company had been
mining o.n one of the Colusa-Parrot veins,
not included in the original controversy,
and another suit for heavy damages Mas j
brought against the Anaconda compiny, !
but all litligation will now be dsmissed. !
This includes the Colusa-Parrot nrne I
and the smaller mines known as the i
Parks Parrot and Micawber.

DEMOCRATS AT WAITING GAME
Special to Tlie Glolte.
LITTLE FALLS, Minn., Feb. 23.—The
new Sixth congressional district seems
destined to become one of the m«t in
teresting and closely contested political
battle grounds in the state. The election
of the first member of congress from the
new district -will go a long way toward
settling the permanent political complex
ion of tffce territory which Includes the
geoprapWcal heart of the state. If the
Democrats can center upon a candidate
who may be able to reconcile the con
tending factions, the district, which, de
spite the efforts of the gerrymandering
committee of the session of 1&01, Is by no
means safely Republican, they can elect
their man and take first mortgage on
possession of the oistrict ior many a
long day.
On the other hand, if the Republicans
can land their man they will be able to
perfect an organization of t 4 .e district,
now anything but a unit in political inter
est, which will be, extremely difficult to
overcome at the succeeding election—a
presidential campaign. The situation is
| complicated and presents a large element
j of uncertainty, which will only be set
, at rest when the Democrats get together,
as they seem in a fair way now to do.
The Democrats have so far played a
I waiting hand in the game, which is
young, but which at the game time is
rapidly taking definite form. They have
several good candidates and one of whom
would be able to put up a rattling fight
| with a unification of the contending inter
l ests which have through their domestic
strife, landed the district in the Repub
lican columns. The Republicans who
have been thrown together by the reap
pbrtionment have been by no means free
from the same discord oetween iactions
representing local interest, but skillful
i manipulation is rapidly producing a nar
| meny on the surface, at least. So far as
j perfecting preliminary organization is
concerned partisan honors are even.
! Eleven of the thirteen counties were
I taken from the old Sixth district. One.
Douglas, was cut out of Eddy's old
stamping ground, the Seventh; and Meek
er ccunty was one of Joel Heatwole s
treasure boxes of organized strength.
Of course, both Douglas and Meeker
are Republican counties, but the big ma- I
jorities landed by Edy and Heatwole re
spectively may be cut down consider.! by
through the fact that neither has many
interests in common with the rest of the
district.
Neither side can afford to waste much
time preparatory to preliminary organi
zation on account of the Interests that
must be harmonized. The Democrat*
hav-3 waited to see who has the first can
on the Republican nomination, and any
doubts along that line are being cleared
up with a speed that indicates the Re
publicans are getting their feet under
them for a big fight, and have selected
their hardest fighter, Senator O. B. Buck
man, to make the organization sprint.
Until the Republican nomination was
practically settled the Democrats did not
care to test the comparative vote seturg
strength of their fine collection of avail
able timber. It is now grne.-aPy con
ceded throughout the district by leaders
of the Republican party and planly (-vi
dent to the Democrats that UucKman Is
the man, and now the I democrats are
ready to settle down to the work of se
lection from their fine array of available
timber. Geographical considerations, and
particularly. th« desire to hold intact the
Democratic strength of Steam? county,
will undoubtedly play an impo'-t-int part
in the selection of the Democratic candi
date and will probably result in the nom
ination of Judge Theodore Bnmer, of St.
Cloud. Judge Bruner is. howevtrr, not the
only Steams county man warmly advo
cated by Democrats over *he rlist Jet.

Special to The Globe.
CHICAGO, Feb. 23.-Laboring under un
usual excitement because of burglary
committed in his home, Erskine C. Mur
phy, formerly general manager of the
lowa division of the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy railroad, suddenly died early
this morning, while attempting to notify
the police of the robbery. He and his
wife had attended a Thomas concert last
night, and returning about 12 o'clock
they noticed their home illuminated, with
windows and doors opened. Entering
they found that burglars had ransacked
the 'place. Murphy sought a livery sta
ble near by, and tried to call up the po
lice station. Finally he asked an em
ploye to ring for police, and while hast
ening back to his home fell dead in the
street. Mrs. Murphy was awaiting tho
police, and when the patrol wagon came
she ran from a neighbor's residence, only
to see the officers bear into her home the
dead body of her husb'nd. Mr. Mur
phy was well known in railroad circles.
He was connected with the Burlington
road for sixteen years, retiring three
years ago. The body will be taken to
Laporte, Ind., for interment.

DEATH ISA MYSTERY
JOSHUA PARKHOISE'S BODY POUND
CHARRED AFTER STRANGE
FIRE
CLOTHES SATURATED WITH OIL
Fire Found Blazing: in Three Places
on Second Story — Explosion
or Incendiarism Is
Suspected
Joshua Parkhouse, sixty shears of age,
who conducts a grocery store at 300 Rice
street, came to his death yesterday morn
ing in a mysterious manner, which leaves
room for aH sorts of theories. The
oause of his death was fire, but how the
fire originated, or how he was unable to
make his escape is a problem that is puz
zling the police and fire departments.
Some boys passing the grocery store
yesterday morning noticed smoke issuing
from the windows and an alarm was
turned in at once. When the firemen ar
rived on the scene they found Parkhouse
lying- dead six feet from the door, with
his face burned to a crisp and the flames
still burning on his vest and coat.
The fire appeared to be up stairs and
upon C3ing there the firemen discov
ered mree distinct blazes. These having
been ext;nguishea they returned to the
ground floor, and discovered smoke com
ing up through the cracks. They found
another blaze in the basement, and a
strong odor of coal oil was evident en
all sides.
A second examination; of the body ol
Parkhouse disclosed the fact that he was
soaked with coal oil from head to foot
on the right side of his body, 'l.iere were
no marks of violence to his person, ex
cept his burned face, which was beyonO
recognition.
That the fire was the result of either an
explosion or an incendiary the firemen
are certain, from the fact u»at it had
started in four different places, but thej
are at a loss to understand how it could
start in the basement and then get up tc
the second noor, killing Parkhouse ir
the meantime on the ground floor arc
saturating one-half of him with coa^
oil. The damage to the building was
comparatively slight.
His wife, Mrs. Susan M. Parkhouse, th<
proprietor of the grocery store, also runs
a boarding house at the corner of Centra
and Cedar. AVhen she hearid of the deatl
of her husband she fainted and has beei
in a precarious condition ever since
Three doctors are attending her. Then
are many theories as to the cause of th<
affair in the surrounding neighborhood
Suicide is advanced by some, with de
spondency as the cause, robbery anc
murder by 0.-ners and still others relj
upon the explosion possibility, althougt
there are many things about the laltei
which they co not pretend to explain.
Saicide Theory Donbted.
There is. no evidence at present to show
that Parkhouse made an attempt at tak
ing his life. It is said that he has been
in the habit of making glass signs fcr
the store, which necessitated the use of
a larg.j lamp in the process, and by some
it is tnought likely that this lamp may
have exploded while he was working,
and that in his efforts to extinguish thj
flames he was overcome by them. The
explosion, they maintain, caused him to
be saturated with the oil. The flramen
and policemen th'nk that possibly that,
while in a state of mental aberration,
Parkhouse may have attempted to set
fire to the place and in doing so spl.t oil
on himself, which became ignited and
caused his death.
It is known that he has been subject
to attacks of heart failure for many
years past, and his friends maintain that
this is the primary cause of his death.
All the windows and the doors in the
place were securely locked and it was
necessary for the firement to batter down
an entrance.' Parkhouse was bo'\i in
England and came to thi3 country when
five years o!d. He lived for a time in
North Dakota, and is an old resident of
this city. He has two sons. On<?, Hiram,
is a chief clerk in the Great Northern
office. The other lives in the state of
Washington.
Coroner Miller will hold an inquest over
the remains today and endeavor to come
to some conclusion as to the cause cf
his death. The body was removed from
the grocery store to Dampier's under
taking establishment. He , has always
borne a good character in the neighbor
hood where he lived, and never was
known to be of a particularly despondent
nature.
