HEYMANN WILL FAGE THE MUSIC
AND HIS WIFE IN THE WINDY CITY
Albert Heymann, the musician under
arrest in St. Paul for deserting his wife
in Chicago to elope with Mrs. Otto
Pertsch, after announcing a determina
tion to fight extradition proceedings,
decided last night to return to Chicago
and stand trial.
Deputy Sheriff Thomas Morrison, of
Chicago, who came to St. Paul with
the requisition papers, appeared before
Gov. Van Sant yesterday, and the gov
ernor, after being assured by the at
torney general that the papers were in
proper form, decided to honor the ex
Heymann was represented at the
hearing by Attorney Thomas Dagatt,
whom he retained to fight the extradi
tion. Under the statute Heymann was
given twenty-four hours in which to
sue out a writ of habeas corpus and
instructed his attorney to take formal
steps to do so.
After a long consultation at the cen
tral station last night Heymann an
nounced his intention of abandoning
the fight and returning without further
protest. The woman with whom he has
been living as his wife during his four
month's residence in St. Paul, and
who has been assiduous in attention
upon him since his arrest, also advised

Victor Johnson, until recently a
brakeman on the Omaha road, rushed
into the police station yesterday after
noon and begged to be protected from
a mob of his enemies, whom he said
would kill him if he was not placed
out of their reach.
The man insisted that the mob was
only a short ways behind him, and he
appeared much more at ease when his
request to be placed in a cell was
granted. The man was found to be
temporarily insane, and was later tak-

STILL IN THE COURT
Injunction Proceedings Against the
City Continue to Absorb Judge
The application for a temporary in

land Vapor Light company for the
gasoline lighting of the city for 1903,
was submitted in Judge Bunn's court
yesterday, the entire day being taken
up with the reading of affidavits. The
arguments will be made tomorrow.
The hearing was the result of a suit
brought by John F. Broderick against
the city, the purpose of which is to
have annulled the contract entered into
with the Cleveland company by the
common council, by the terms of which
the Cleveland company is to furnish
the gasoline lights for the coming
The suit is practically brought by
the Western Street Lighting company,
which claimed to have been the low

action of the council in awarding the
contract to the Cleveland company was
not in accordance with the provisions
of the city charter.
A week ago the plaintiff secured an
order from Judge Lewis, citing the city
to appear and show cau^e why the in
junction asked for should not be in
force during the pendency of the suit
