UNION NOT FAVORED
Many Delegates of Norwegian
Lutheran Synod Are
Opposed to It
WANT SPECIAL MEETING
Talk of Celebrating the Semi-Cen
tennial Anniversary at Decorali
Next Year—Will Have Ordination
Exercises Tuesday Evening.
The Norwegian Lutheran synod spent
the greater part of yesterday in discuss
ing the advisability of a union of the
United church and the Free church with
their organization. A number of the
leading divines In the convention seem
to be of the opinion that a union at the
l time is impossible.
The principal objection which was ad
vanced yesterday afternoon with refer
ence to a union was: "Deviation as to
authoritative scripture, and also devia
tion in explaining- scripture." The synod
believes in one holy Christian church. It
believes that there are true Christians in
other Christian churches, who, in spite of
the false doctrines therein, have the true
faith. The synod believes in firm adher
ence to Bible truth, because it is a Chris
tian duty. The synod does not believe in
a false union which would overlook devia
tion from the divine truth. It must insist
on a unity of spirit in order to have per.
feet external union, and it will ever exert
itself to bring about such a unicn in
spirit and desires nothing more than this.
To Remain Steadfast.
The synod has experienced difficulties
because of its firm stand, but will al
ways adhere to the truth it has confessed,
end will so ren am steadfast.
Various committees on the president's
triennial message reported yesterday, in
which every point and request made was
eustained. The suggestion regarding the
necessity of a new building at Luther
normal school, Sioux Falls, and a pension
of $900 a year for Prof. J. B. Frich was
referred to committees.
A number of the delegates left last
evening for Red Wing, where they went
on invitation from President Bjorge, of
the Minnesota district, to attend ordina
tion exercises, which will be conducted
there today. Ordination exercises will be
conducted at a meeting of the conven
liun next Tuesday evening, and quite a
large class will be ordained,
It appears to be the general sentiment
Rmong the delegates that there should be
c special meeting of the synod next year
on the occasion of its semi-centennial of
its organization. Decorah is anxious to
fittingly celebrate the anniversary in an
epropriate manner, and wants the cele
bration to be under the patronage of the
The pulpits of the local churches con
nected with the synod will be filled by
visiting clergymen today.

MEGAARDES JL'RY IS DISCHARGED
TVo Agreement Reached After Delib-
crating Twenty-Four Hours.
The jury in the Megaarden case after
being out twenty-four hours, were of
the opinion that they could not agree
and appeared before Judge Simpson and
asked that they be discharged. They
informed the Judge that it was an utter
impossibility for them to reach any sort
of an agreement, and that they were
about as far apart as they were when
they entered the jury room and took
the first ballot.
It is claimed that there were four men
on the jury who believed that Me
guarden was technically guilty, but that
they did not believe he had any criminal
intent, and consequently did not wish
•to brand him as a felon. Several of
them were of the opinion that he was
guilty and should be convicted, while
there were others who were up in the
air, so to speak.
The jury appeared before the judge in
the forenoon and asked the court to
interpret" certain testimony. The court
vefu/sed to do so, stating 'Jm It "was the
province of the jury to interpret any
evidence that had bet-n placed before
them, and that it would be improper
for the court to grant their request.
Ihe jury refused to go to dinner yes
terday noon, because they had determined
to reach an agreement before they dined
This seemingly did not change the vote'
as those who had voted a certain way
were equally as good fasters as those
who voted against them. County Attor
ney Boardman would not make any
statement as to what course would be
pursued in regard to the cases "against
the ex-sheriff, whether they would be
nolled or whether he would continue to
prosecute in Hennepin county.
CHIEF AMES ENTERS DEMITIRER.
Argument on It Will Be Taken Up
on Monday Morning.
Frank R. Hubachek, attorney for Chief
of Police Ames, appeared before Judge
Simpson and entered a formal demurrer
to the indictment charging the chief with
having accepted a bribe.
The demurrer contained the following
grounds upon which it was based: That
the indictment does not contain a state
ment of facts constituting any offense
in ordinary concise language; that it is
not direct and certain as regards the of
fense charged; that it is not direct and
certain as regards to the particular cir
cumstances of the offense charged which
are necessary to constitute a complete of
fense; that more than one offense is
charged in the indictment and that the
facts do not constitute a public offense
The argument on the demurrer will be
taken up at 9:30 Monday morning. It is
claimed that the state has been reinforc
ed by a certain witness whose testimony
had not been expected and his evidence
will be direct and damaging to the de
fendant on the offense charged, unless the
testimony can be impeached.
This was the only matter in regard to
the-police investigation that was taken
up in the courts yesterday, but commenc
ing on Monday several of the cases will
be on in earnest It is expected that
there will be considerable difficulty in se
lecting a jury which has heard nothing
about the charges mad-e against certain
police officials, or who have not read any
thing regarding waat is purported to be
the state of affairs in police circles.
