Hope for Heavy Vote.
The one hope of the Republicans
lies in polling an unusually heavy off
year vote. They realize that with a
normal off year poll Van Sant is beat
en. The estimate by counties giving
Mr. Rosing 9,264 makes more than
ample provision for the natural in
crease in the vote over 1898. But 1898
does not furnish a fair basis of com
parison for the Republicans. While
they then suffered from apathy so far
as the head of their ticket was con
cerned,, they made an immeasurably
better campaign for getting out the
The vote of IS9B fell nearly 100,000
below the vote got out by the presi
dential campaign of 1896. The full
citizenship act of 1897, popularly
known as the disenfranchisement act,
was felt in the vote of 1898 and again
in 1900. The effects of the law of 1897
have been overcome in a large degree
but it is giving the Republican ticket
the benefit of all the doubt to place
this off year vote only 40,000 behind
the vote drawn out by the bitter pres
idential campaign two years ago. If
the vote falls as low as 250,000, and
some of the best Republican authori
ties claim it will not exceed 250,000,
Rosing's plurality should be consider
ably in excess of 10,000.
Off Years Dangerous.
Off years are always dangerous to
the Republicans in Minnesota, and
with a gubernatorial candidate that
fas been able neither to inspire en
thusiasm or hold his party together,
Jhere is little ground on which to base
I hope of a large off year vote.
In IS9O W. R. Merriam was declared
llected over Thomas Wilson by a plu
rality of 2,267. In 1886 A. R. McGill
had only 3,000 over Dr. Ames and in
1898 John Lind beat William Henry
Eustis by 20,000. That Lind did beat
both Clough and Van Sant in presiden
tial years is a question on which the
people have their minds entirely made
The Republicans say that if Van
Sant is beaten it will be through Re
publican apathy. They have not the
slightest hope of getting out their
party vote, but claim that they will
offset the shortage in their own vote

IN ST. PAUL CHURCHES
INTERESTING TALK BY
MISS LILLIAN MARKS
She Gives a Graphic Account of the
Famine and Suffering Which Pre
vailed in India — Thousands Died
From the Lack of Water, as Well as
Pulpits of the several Methodist
churches were tilled yesterday morn
ing: by members of the "Woman's For
eign Missionary conference, which is
now in session in Minneapolis.
Foreign mission work was the sub
ject of each of the sermons, and while
the inclemency of the weather pre
vented the usual large attendance,
those who braved the storm were well
repaid for their discomfort.
Miss Lillian Marks, of Ajmere, In
dia, spoke at the Central Park M. E.
church, and gave a graphic account of
the famine which prevailed In India
and caused the death of 58,000 of the
Miss Marks was in charge of a girls'
school at Ajmere, and during- the pe
riod of the famine, assisted in caring
for 3,000 famine sufferers.
"The famine was not only one of
food," said the missionary, "but also
of water. For two hours each day the
water taps were turned on, and dur
ing these two hours it was not an un
usual sight to see acres of the natives
struggling- to reach the taps. The
stronger ones pushed and trampled
over the weak ones, and, frequently,
when the water was turned off, a score
of the bodies of the starved and weak
natives were found lying dead on the
ground. The suffering from the want
of water was more terrible than from
the famine of food."
Sold Her Daughter for a Dollar.
The speaker told of an incident
where the mother of a family brought
her eldest daughter to the mission and
offered to sell the child for an amount
equal in American money to $1, so that
she could procure food for the rest of
the family, including an infant a year
old. The cholera breaking out added
to the horror of the famine, and hun
dreds of the natives, who were cared
for by the mission, were in such a
condition that, when first received, it
was necessary to feed them with a tea
spoonful at a time.
Miss Fannie Perkins, of Burmah,
India, spoke at the Grace M. E. church

KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
REMEMBER THEIR DEAD
Memorial Services in Honor of the
Late A. J. Galbraith and Robert
D. O'Connell Are Held.
Memorial services in honor of A. J.
Galbraith and Robert D. O'Connell, the
two members of the Knights of Co
lumbus who died during the past year,
were held at the hall of the order, on
Robert street, yesterday afternoon.
The services were ritualistic in form,
the officers of the order being attired
in the robes of their office and occupy
ing their usual positions in the lodge
room. A catafalque, at the head of
which burned candles and on which
was a profusion of flowers, added to
the effectiveness of the services.
Grand Knight Hon. William Louis
Kelly led the procession of lodge offi
cers in the room, and after these had
taken their accustomed positions the
Knights of Columbus quartette, com
posed of H. C. and A. F. Soucheray,
Frank Rosenthal and John F. Gehan,
sang "Lead, Kindly Light."
The names of the members for
whom the services were held were
called, and after each name there was
a slight pause and one of the officers
of the lodge answered "Absent." Grand
Knight "William Louis Kelly then de
livered the memorial address, saying,
"The names of our beloved brothers'
have been called, but the response was
'absent.' 'Absent* is the echo of death.
The angel of death has knocked at our
brothers' doors. From their birth our
holy mother church.has prepared them
for the journey. No one of our depart
ed brothers will return to us evermore.
Why do we wish them to remain in
this valley of tears? With what joys
does the good Knight pass away. He
goes to receive the heavenly reward.
Death is victory; the grave is but the
portal of eternal life. How sweet the
consolation that in heaven we will
know our own. To each one of us will
come the summons. Tomorrow our
names may be called and someone an

dress by reciting a portion of James

T. D. O'Brien, district supreme
knight, delivered the eulogy on A. J.
Galbraith, and Knight E. J. Cannon
paid tribute to the memory of Robert

death occurred during the past year.
The quartette sang "Closed Are The
Eyes," and the officers of the lodge
closed the services with the death
ritual, the chaplain, Rev. Father Am

FOR MISSIONARY WORK
Hamline Students Preparing for Serv
ice Abroad Conduct Religious
Pledged for missionary work in the
foreign field, Miss Margaret Millie,
Walter Crawford and Marion Hursh,
three young people composing the
Hamline student volunteers, are em
ploying the time until they have fin
ished their schooling and are called
for active work, in holding meetings
in St. Paul and the surrounding coun
try. Last night the members of the
volunteers spoke to a large meeting of
young people at the Plymouth Congre
gational church, and each Sunday
hereafter will hold meetings in other
churches. Mr. Crawford will finish his
course next year, and the other two a
or two thereafter. All will be under
the guidance of the Methodist foreign
missionary board, and will be sent, out
as needed. In their present work they
have associated with them Arthur
Manuel and Miss Anna Tripp, who
provide the musical programme.
The addresses last night, natural
ly, all had for their subject phases of
the work to which these new recruits
to the army of the cross have pledged
their lives if need be, and their earnest
and faithful service at all times. Their
exhortations to their listeners to sup
port the missionary work with money,
if possible, and with prayer if they
could not do both, were supplemented
with stories of missionary endeavor in
the far East and Africa. The mission
ary reports on conditions existing in
these darkened lands and of heroic ef
forts on the part of the missionaries
to eradicate evil and superstition,
which appealed strongest to the im
agination of the recruits, were most
generally taken as the themes.

NOTABLE.SUCCESS OF COUNTY
ATTORNEY T. R. KANE
Great Saving to Taxpayers by His
Work in Refundment and Other Im
portant Cases—Enforced the Law
Against Blacklisting—His Vigorous
Prosecution of Criminals.
No county officer who is a candi
date for re-felection has a more note
worthy record than Thomas R. Kane,
the county attorney. During Mr.
Kane's two years in office, his man
agement of the jivil cases to which
Ramsey county was a party, has saved
many thousand dollars to the taxpay
ers, while his prosecution of criminals
has been almost uniformly successful.
In tax refundment cases, prior to
Mr. Kane's time, the county had been
paying 10 per" cent interest where the
tax sales Trad been declared by the
courts to be void. Mr. Kane contend
ed that the rate should be only 7 per
cent, and this position he succeeded in
establishing befere the supreme court.
The decision of that tribunal in the
test case that was carried up from
the Ramsey county district court was
justly regarded by members of the bar
as a great victory for Mr. Kane.
Has Reduced Tax Claims.
It can be further stated that the
rigid.rules established by him in tax
contests has greatly lessened the num
ber of such; cases and the consequent
loss to the 'county. The county com
missioners formerly passed finally on
these claims lor the refunding of tax
es, and the laxity of this system re
sulted in frequent irregularities and
loss. This has been changed by Mr.
Kane. All claims for refundment now
pass through the 1 county attorney's of
fice, where they are subjected to close
scrutiny and a liberal winnowing.
One of Mr. Kane's other triumphs in
the supreme court was the celebrated
blacklisting- ca-se, technically known
as the action of the state against Al
fred Scheffer: " This established the
constitutionality of the law forbidding
employers to blacklist discharged em
ployes, and was an important step in
the direction of protecting the rights
The decision of the supreme court
in the suit of the state against the
Crescent Creamery company, another
Ramsey county case fought to a suc
cessful finish by Mr. Kane, sustained
the validity of the state pure food
laws. During his tejm the supreme
cotirt has decided ten cases In which
the county was represented, and in
only one of these has. the county at
torney's office been defeated. The
supreme. court calendar now contains
nine appeals in. suits successfully
maintained r by him In the district and
The "Soo" Bridge Case.
Among these appeals is that of the
"Soo" railway from the decision of the
district court in the bridge case. For
four years before Mr. Kane took office
the county commissioners had been
vainly trying to compel the company
to construct certain bridges within the
county limits. Mr. Kane forced the
matter to a trial, and the district court
decided for the county.
Another of the pending appeals is
from the decisions of the district court
against the county auditors and their
sureties for $23,000 lost to the c6unty
by the fraudulent acts of W. B.
Bourne, formerly deputy auditor, but
now an inmate of the state prison at
Stillwater. In all the four cases grow

DISEASE IS NOT REAL
SO SAYS MRS. KNOTT, CHRISTIAN
SCIENTIST, IN ADDRESS AT
GRAND OPERA HOUSE
TELLS WHY PROMINENCE
IS GIVEN TO MRS. EDDY
Purpose Is to Permanently Stamp Her
Authorship Upon the Christian Sci
ence Doctrines and Avoid Any Dis
pute Regarding It in the Future—A
Religion Difficult to Explain.
Ms. E. N. Knott, formerly first read
er of the Christian Science church in
Detroit, Mich., and now engaged as a
lecturer in the propagation of the be
lief, addressed an audience of fully
1,000 people at the Grand opera house
yesterday afternoon. Her address,
which consumed two hours, was a de
fense and an explanation of the belief,
in adverse criticism of which so much
has been written of late years.
Mrs. Knott treated the doctrine
evolved by Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy
in a manner which explained much
popular prejudice springing from mis
conceptions as to the exact nature of
the belief, and if it did not convince
the unbeliever, it at least assured him
that the doctrine can be rationally ex
Hiram P. Stevens presented Mrs.
Knott to the audience, saying that
many would be surprised to see him
there, but that he came believing that
in this country a person has a right to
be wrong if he wants to, and he was
not saying which side was wrong. At
the conclusion he thanked Mrs. Knott,
saying: "If this be heresy, it has nev
er been more pleasingly stated; if this
be heterodoxy, orthodoxy has some
things to learn."
Mrs. Knott has not only a winsome
personality and a pleasing voice, but
she presented the even so intricate a
subject as a religious belief in a man
ner which held the,, close attention of
the audience throughout the address.
Keep Mrs. Eddy in Evidence.
Her explanation of the reason for
the frequent mention of Mrs. Mary
Baker G. Eddy in the religious services
of Christian Science showed a prac
tical consideration of the future, in
marked contrast to the haphazard
manner in which embryo fame has been
treated heretofore. It might, if prac
ticed in other times, have saved the
world the turmoil of "great crypto
grams" and other scientific methods of
determining the truth of authorship.
There is doubt and controversy, she
said, as to the authorship of many
books of the Bible. The authorship of
Shakespeare's plays,the writer of which
died but a few centuries ago, and in a
literary age, is a matter of dispute.
It was to avoid this and stamp finally
the authorship of Mary Baker Eddy
upon the Christian Science doctrines
that so much prominence is given to*
Disease Has No Reality.
The Christian Science belief in the
spiritual nature of man finds its source
in the Biblical idea of man being made
in the image of his maker. God, they
contend, is purely spiritual, therefore
man must be essentially spiritual. Mrs.
Knott said that the Christian idea of
disease is misunderstood. Disease is
not an essential part of man. If taken
away it does not deprive man of any
■ natural part necessary to his entity.
In this way it is negative:—has no real
The religion, she said, is not yet so
far understood even by its believer that
it can be fully explained. It is a re
ligion that must grow. At the present
time she would hesitate to take the
opinion of any student of the belief
as settling finally what the belief is,
unless his thought were quoted direct
ly from Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy's
text book, "Science and Health With
Key to the Scriptures. "

Sneaks Up Behind the Stalwart Po

Revolver Fails to Work — Makes a
Second Attempt to Shoot, but Is Dis
armed—Police Arrest Him.
Smerling Williams, a notorious
crook and gun man, attempted yester
day to take the life of Sergeant An
drew Call in the barroom of the Com
mercial hotel, Third and Sibley streets.
It was only because the revolver
failed to work 'that the big police offi
cer escaped death. Williams was about
to make a second attempt to shoot the
policeman, when Will Sykes, who was
in the saloon, knocked the gun from
the man's hand and hurried him into
All this was unknown to Sergeant
Call, who stood talking to Joseph
Fredman, the proprietor of the hotel,
with his back turned towards his
would-be assassin. It was not until
after Williams had made good his es
cape that Call learned how nearly he
had come to death.
Would-Be Assassin Arrested.
A search for Willians was at once
Instigated, and he was arrested a few
hours later at the union depot by Pa
trolman Williams. When taken into
custody the man was heavily armed,
carrying two large revolvers, a bowie
knife and a leather billy. He would
give no reason for his apparently un
provoked attack on Sergeant Call.
While searching for two negroes
wanted in Minneapolis, Sergeant Call
dropped into the saloon run in con
nection with the Commercial hotel, to
make inquiries regarding their where
abouts. He was standing with his back
towards the front entrance, when Wil
liams entered. No one paid any at^
tention to him.
Without, the slightest provocation or
warning, the man whipped a revolver
from his pocket and leveled it at the
officer. He pulled the trigger, but there
was no report. The gun failed to work
or else the hammer dropped upon an
Tried Again to Shoot.
Quickly the man made preparations
to repeat his trick, but before he could
do so William Sykes, who was sitting
in a chair near by, rushed to Call's
rescue. He snatched the revolver from
Williams, and, without further ado,
threw the man into the street. Two
other frequenters of the place witness
ed the attack.
Nothing was said to Call, about the
revolver play, until he had finished his
business with Fredman. One of the
spectators then, told him how near he
came to being murdered.
A search for Williams was commenc
ed and the policeman around the depot
told to be on the lookout for him. Two
hours after the incident he was appre
hended by Patrolman Williams.
Sergeant Call did not care to discuss
the matter last night. "It did not
amount to anything," said he, "so just
pass it up. I never saw Williams until
Patrolman Williams brought him to the
station. I am at a loss to know why
he tried to murder me."
It Is said ; that Williams escaped

TAPACHUTLA, Chiapas, Mexico,
Nov. 2. —Growers on neighboring ha
ciendas will suffer great loss owing to
the fact that their stock cannot procure
food, the fields being covered with
ashes from the Santa Maria volcano.
The brooks are choked with .ashes and

everybody fearing a similar fate as
befell the people in Martinique and St.

more than two days.

DIFFER AS TO MUSIC
EXPERTS DISAGREE IN VICTOR
HERBERT'S LIBEL SUIT FOR
Some of Them Declare That Passages
in His "Wizard of the Nile," "The
Idol's Eye," "The Fortune Teller 1*

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. —Musicians
of high degree filled the cor
ridors of the county court house
yesterday while waiting to testify iv
the suit brought by Victor HerbeLl
against a musical publication to re
cover $50,000 damages for accusing
him of being a plagiarist.
Sig. J. M. Vianesi, a former con
ductor of music at the Metropolitan
opera house, was cross-examined by
counsel for Herbert, and one of the*
questions propounded to him was
whether originality in composition
consisted in the original development
of a theme.
The musician drew himself up with
dignity and replied: "What a pity
that I talk with a person who does not
understand music. If you could talk
musically I could understand you."
Among other things Sigr. Vianesl
stated that page 30 of Herbert's "The
Idol's Eye" was like a passage in
"Have you the music here?" he was
"I have it here," replied the witness
tapping his forehead with his fore»
finger. ■ .

"Disguised,""* he replied.
"Well disguised?" ■ ."
Buzzi Pecci, a. professor of the New
York . Musical college, said that "The
Singing Girl," which he had read, was
: what was called in Italy "everybody's
music;" tlfat is was like improvization
at a piano— bars of march, ten
bars of : waltz, without development of
any kind. ~ "The Fortune Teller," he
said,', was a similar composition. ■
, Alfred J. Goodrich, a professor of
composition, . harmony, counter-point
: and orchestration, gave it as", his opin

Idol's Eye" and "The Wizard of the
Nile" in half an hour and had found
No. 1, Act 1., of "The Wizard of the
Nile," was note by note from Bee
thoven's Ninth Symphony. The motif,
he said, was the same, and the notes
were the same; even the key was the
same. ' • '- . . .
Walter Damrosch, who was called in
rebuttal, was asked if there was any
