Norwegian Lutheran Synod
Discusses Union With
TRACTS FOR MORMONS
tNomiimtiiiK- Committee Springs si
Surprise in Recommending Prof.
Laur Larsen for President of
The Norwegian Lutheran synod spent
the greater portion of yesterday In dis
cussing the feasibility of a union among
•the Norwegian Lutherans, and the indi
cations are that such a union is well nigh
impossible, owing to the differtn views
expressed by the clergy and laymen of
:. One of the obstacles to consolidatin is a
difference of views on the doctrine relat
ing to the correct explanation of the
Scripture, the deviation by other
branches of the church being held in
opposition to the Lutheran creed. The
first one of these deviations is the asser
tion that unregeneratc man assistis in
his own conversion, a teaching quite con
trary to tie- doctrine of the synod,
Numerous quotations from the writings
of prominent members of the United
Church were produced to show that they
Indorsed this doctrine.
Permission was requested of the syn
od to take up subscriptions during the
synod for the purpose of raising funds
for the publication of tracts, especially
designed to reach Mormons. Rev. A.
G. H. Overn, a Mormon missionary, o
fered to head the list with $25. The mat
ter was referred to committee on mis
sions No. \2, as was also the matter of
supplying home missions with tracts for

something of a surprise when they recom

presidency of Lather college, on account
of advanced age, and the great amount
of detail work which is required of him
at that institution, which is chiefly com
posed of young boys. The work at Lu
ther seminary would be more to his lik
ing, as those who attend this institution
arc more advanced in years and are pre
paring for the ministry, and the com.
mittee argued en that account of his
wide experience in this line that he was
the most acceptable candidate for the
It had become a generally accepted
fact that in the resignation of Prof
Firch. either Prof. H. J. Stoub or Frof!
Jehu Vivisaker, both at present connect
ed with Luther seminary!!, would be pro.
moted to till the vacancy, and conse
quently Prof. Stub was nominated as an
opposing candidate for the position.
The i lection of officers, which, was to
have taken place today, was postponed
until Wednesday. The committee on
nominations also presented the names
of all other officers to be elected by the
synod, and the bollots lor these will also
be cast next Wednesday.

completed their theological course at Lu

Minneapolis Threshing Machine Co.
Purchases Plant in Canada.
The Minneapolis Threshing Machine
company and the Advance Threshing
Machine company have jointly purchased
the plant of John Abell, of Toronto,
Canada .the purpose being to manuafc
tine machines for the Canadian trade.
The reason for their purchasing the
plant is on account of the almost prohibi
tive tariff that is demanded on threshing
machines between the United States and
Canada, and if the United States wishes
to do any business in this line it is
cheaper to locate a plant in Canada than
to manufacture here and ship across.
The two companies will probably or
ganize a third company to take care of
their Canadian interests.' The Toronto
plant has about the same capacity as
the plant here in Minneapolis.

ALIBI FOR M'DONALD
Army Officer Answers His
Accuser Before Philip
NOT A WOMAN WRONGED
Cant. McDonald Says He and Other
Officers Were Far From Scenes
Described in O'Brien's
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 26.—Capt.
McDonald, formerly of the Twenty-sixth
volunteer infantry, one of (the officers
accused in Corporal O'Brien's testimony,
was before the Philippines committee of
the senate today. He denied all the alle
gations made by O'Brien and said O'Brien
was on duty elsewhere at the times he
claimed to have been present.
Capt. McDonald, who is from Charles
town, Mass., said he had no doubt that
he was the Capt. Frederick McDonald re
ferred to in Corporal O'Brien's testimony.
He admitted having seen the water cure
administered at Igbaras, but asserted
that O'Brien was at San Joaquin, thirty
miles away, at the time. Witness said he
went to the Philippines in 1890 and had
been there eighteen or"" twenty months.
The one case named was the only time
he ever saw the v/ater cure adminis
tered. -7.'. •' f.
Senator Lodge—Do you know anything
of the violation of the person of a Span
ish woman by American officers, as testi
fied to by O'Brien?
Capt. McDonald—No such circum
stance as that ever occurred at that
time or any other from the beginnings to
ii..; end of my stay in the Philippines,
and I have never Known of a Spanish
woman or any other woman being vio
lated by an American" officer.
The witness went on to say that he
supposed the woman that O'Brien had in
mind in this connection was the wife of a
son of the mayor of Igbaras. A brother
of the woman's husband, he said, had
been made a cripple for life by Montour's
band of ladrones, and the body of the
husband's father, when he died, had been '
dragged about the stredts by Montourj
himself. This woman, he said, had given j
valuable information- to Bergt Davis of
his company concerning the movements of
the insurgents. But the witness added
that this woman never had been mal
treated by the Americans.
Regarding O'Brien's statement that Mc-
Donald and other officers had demeaned
themselves disgracefully at a native dance
at San Joaquin, Cap„. McDonald said:
Didn't Even Attend That Dance.
"That statement is a deliberate lie from
beginning to end. Maj. Cook, whose name
is given as that of one of the officers
present on that occasion, was on duty ax
the town of Jaro, sixty miles distant, at
the time the dance is said to have oc
curred, and I was on duty at Mignon."
This dance was said to have occurred
at the home of the presidente of the town
of San Joaquin, and the mention of, that
individual brought to the mind of CapL
McDonald an incident which, he said, had
occurred when he first visited the town.
The presidente had invited him to break
fast, and after he had partaken of that
meal he became violently ill. A physician
pronounced the symptoms to be due to
poisoning, but as some of the members
of the presidente's family also were sim
ilarly sick, it was supposed at the time
that the poisoning was accidental and
th:> matter was dropped. "I state that
as a reaosn why I could not have been
at the dance," he said; and he added
that he later had received evidence that
this native official was contributing to the
As to Rations.
Capt. McDonald also flatly contradicted
O'Brien's statement that he or any other
officers of the company had withheld
from the troops the rations to which
they were entitled. He called attention
to the fact that the captain of a com
pany never handles the fund for the pur
chase of the supplies needed by his com
mand. He also declared that it was not
true that the bread received for the com
pany had been sold.
"The soldiers," he said, "had fresh
bread every day in the week that we
could bake it."
As to the statement that the insur
gents had put a prize on his head be
cause of his cruelty, Capt. McDonald
said he never had heard of that fact, if
it was a fact. "I imagine," he said, "that
the insurgents would have shot any of
ficer of the American army as I would
have shot any insurgent officer who
would not surrender, but that there was
any prize upon my head I had no evi
dence, and I went about freely and alone
among the natives at all times."
He also denied that he ever had struck
a prisoner, over the head with a revolver
as O'Brien had charged. "If," he said,
"a prisoner had not done as ordered I
should have shot him instead of strik
Speaking of the treatment of peace
able natives by the Americans in the
Philippines, Capt. McDonald said it was
like the treatment of a child by his
father. At first Filipino prisoners had
been given the same character of food
supplied to the American soldiers and it
was cooKed in the same way, but when
it was found that the American style of
cooking did not agree with them, orders
were issued to supply them with their
Nobody Burned to Death.
The witness testified concerning the
capture of the barrio of La Nog in con
nection with which O'Brien had said that
an unarmed boy had been fired on by
the entire command, that three old men,
two of them bearing a flag of truce, had
been shot down, and that a woman and
two children had been burned to death.
He denied all the statements detailing
these supposed circumstances, but said it
was true that the barrio had been cap
tured and burned. It was a stockaded
stronghold of ladrones, set on a hill and
considered inaccessible while the Span-

ments, and the request was granted.
WORDS OF M'KINLEY GARBLED.
Entertaining Point Brought Out in
the Senate Discussion.
"WASHINGTON, D. C, May 26.—Mr. Pat
terson, of Colorado, and of the minority
members Of the Philippines committee
of the senate, occupied the floor most of
today in a discussion of the Philippines
question. Mr. Patterson quoted from the
utterances of his newspaper, the Denver
News, to show that it consistently had
advocated the independence of the Fili
pinos since December, 1898. He said the
editorials quoted by Mr. Foraker some
days ago had been written prior to that
time. He discussed the whole Philip
pines question and several lively collo
quies occurred during the speech.
Mr. Patterson declared that after the
capture of Manila, "a censored press, de
liberately-guided by the powers in Wash
ington, had misrepresented the situation
in the Philippine islands." Mr. Patterson
quoted from a speech of Mr. Foraker,
made in January, 1899, to the effect that
he had no sympathy with those who
talked of "making war on Agulnaldo
and his followers In their struggle for
liberty and independence."
Mr. Foraker explained that the war he
referred to.was not a war between the
United States and the Filipinos, but th
war between Spain and the Filipinos.
Mr. Patterson said that that could not
be the case as Manila had fallen to the
Americans and the Spaniards had been
sent to their homes. Mr. Foraker said
his sympathies always had been with
the American troops and would be until
the -st gun had been fired in the pending
-Mr. Hoar asked* Mr.Foraker to read the
sentence in -President McKlnley's pro
clamation which had been eliminated by
General Otis, lest it should bring on war.
He said General Otl3 had assumed ex
traordinary authority to himself to sup
press a part of the proclamation and to
substitute a statement that would in
dicate to the Filipinos that they were to
be granted a full measure of liberty.
Mr. Hoar said-he realised the purity of
purpose and intellectual superiority of

A sharp colloquy - arose between Mr.
Comas and Mr. Carmack, the former
asserting that abuse of the armyof
ficers and men—was to be found in every
speech, almost, on the Democratic side.
Mr. Carmack insisted that not a single
democrat had abused the army.
Mr. Duboise said that not a Democratic
senator had abused the army as much
as Gen. Chaffee had in an associated
press dispatch from Manila, published
today. The statement about the Waller
court-martial by Gen. _naffee, Mr. Du
bois said, was one of the blackest pages
in the history of the army. He did not
think any senator who had called at
tention to "outrages" could be accused
properly of vilifying the army.
Mr. Comas said Gen. Chaffee had made
his comment simply on the acts of one
brave man when he was ill and scarcely
responsible for what he did.
Mr. Foraker referred to the proclama
tion of President McKinley to the Fili
pinos and to the change made in it by
Mr. Hoar interrupted to refer to the as
surance of President McKinley to Andrew
Carnegie that in thirty days resistance
in the Philippines would cease. Gen.
Otis knew the Filipinos would not sub

their independence. --.'
"So," said Mr. Hoar, "Gen. Otis sup

Mr. Foraker urged that the proclama

Mr. Hoar declared that. if such a pro
clamation had been, issued to the people
of Ohio they would have regarded it as
a declaration of war. .

HARD TO GIST MEAT HAULED.
Chicago Parker* Beginning to Yield
to Striking: Teamsters.
CHICAGO, May £G.—The first effects of
the strike of teamsters at the stock yards
was felt today. One of the largest hotels
was shy ham, bacon arid eggs at break
fast, and several other hotels felt the
absence of particular cuts of meat. The
packers have asked fen- police protect!
The small butchers who bay their sup
plies from day to day were the chief
sufferers today, as the larger firm are
generally supplied with a live-day stock.
Iwenty-two girls employed by one
packing concern refused to ride in a
bus driven by a non-union man. They
climbed into the vehicle, but when thy
learned that the regular driver ha : join
ed the strikers they refused to ride, and
walked the distance.
Three wholesale provision 'balers at the
Union stock yards signed the union sea
today and their men returned to work.
They Wile David Levi & Co., NOOI fc
I-loff and the National Provision ccm
~pany. Other smaller concerns are expect
ed to come in later.
As results of the strike business -n
packing town may be paralyzed and
that among wholesale butchers and
down-town restaurants may be seriously
Unless concessions are made or an
agreement reached tomorrow the Union
Stock Yards & Transit company is finely
to find itself in the toils of the strike.
The strikers will demand that the com
pany refuse to transport io the up-town
district meats heretofore hauled by --c
teamsters. if refused _ g«neral strike
of railroad men will be ordered. This
-will call out all engineers, firemen, brake
men and other union labor operatives
of the company, If the strike shall come
not a car can be moved, cither in or out
of the yards.
"We are in this mo/emont to win, and
if the beads of tie. big stock yards con
cerns continue to ignore us we shall teach
them a lesson," said Secretary Q. F.
Goulden, of the Teamsters' National
Union of America, tonight. We asked
for a conferenc with th suprlntndnts.
but up to dat none of them has evinced
a desire to talk the matter over with me.
We shall surely stop all the team busi
ness by Wednesday, If they undertake
to use the short line railroad system in
stead, something new may be heard.
The railroad union is pretty strong. It
v. di not stand lor oppression and Lungs
i may be lively in a day or two."

CARRY LUMBER TO
ST. VINCENT SUFFERERS
Our Xavy Adds a Good Office in Con
nection Willi a tart From
WASHINGTON, D. ''.. May 26 -The
navy department has added one more,
and perhaps ihe last, to the good offices
which it has been called upon to perform
In behalf of the West Indian volcanic
sufferers by undertaking to transport to
the homeless people of St. Vincent a
large quantity of building lumber which
the Canadian government has donated.
The lumber is coming by rail from
Canada through to Norfolk, ii.. treasury
officials authorizing its passage through
the United States in bond without pay
ment of duty. At Norfolk the- lumber
will be loaded on the collier Leonldas and
transported directly to St. Vincent.
Having relieved all present necessities
of the inhabitants of Martinique and St.
Vincent, the navy department has decided
to suspend further activity in that .li
lt etion and merely to "stand by" ready
to i ;.■.,.:! to any call for assistance.
The little Potomac, which, under the di
rection of Lieut. McCormick, his per
formed such splendid service in the re
lief work, will not be sent back unless
new and worse conditions develop.
The Dixie probably will finish unload
ing at St. Vincent tomorrow and she, too.
will be withdrawn from further service
in the West Indies, returning to New
Adjt. Gen. Corbin has received the fol
lowing cablegram from Capt. Hugh J.
Gallagher, commissary department; dated

"Area of devastation St. Vlnvent about
twelve square miles in northern extrem
ity. The population of this area was
3,000, of whom i.e. lost their lives. Tb_
remainder escaped by flight to Kings

people to be sustained by public aid be
cause many escaped. Outside of ana of
devastation no great damage was done,
but people are very apprehensive. This
condition will not. abate until the volcano
subsides. Supplies of all kinds from
Dixie were most gratefully received and
will, with what Is on hand, provide lor
the present population for three months.
Lumber for rebuilding Is asked."
PARIS, May 27.— soon as parliament
meets the government will present a bill
