Thomas R. Morgan of Oshkosh
Is Shot by an Employe Who
Hangs Himself in the City
Lockup—The Murder Was
OSHKOSH, Wis., Aug. 18.—Thomas
R. Morgan, alderman of C/B Seventh
ward and millionaire president of the
Morgan company, sash, d.oor and blind
manufacturers, wes fatally shot today
by one of the employes of the company,
Fred Hampel, a laborer in the lumber
yard, from the result' of which Mr.
Morgan died in half an hour. His mur
derer committed suicide by hanging
himself with his suspenders in the city
lockup. The shooting was without
provocation. The wounded man walk
ed unassisted from the scene of the
shooting on Fifth street to his office,
at Oregon and Sixth streets, and the
ambulance was called. He was taken j
at once to St. Mary's hospital, but died
just before the hospital was reached.
Employes of the compi\iy are frenzied
with anger. The police were notified
that a lynching was contemplated and
they took extra precautions to prevent
such a tragedy.
The shooting was witnessed by sev
eral people. John Rowlands, a slasher
in the employ of the Morgan company,
who was with Mr. Morgan at the time,
"I was walking down Fifth street
along the railroad track in tfye yards
when I met Mr. Morgan. He and I
stopped to talk a minute or two about
some lumber when Hampel came up
where we were. He seemed to be
frenzied with liquor judging from his
appearance. He sr.id nothing but look
ed at us steadily. Mr. Morgan knew
that he had been away from work and
was drunk, and without waging for.
Hampel to speak he said to him:
"Fred, I have no time 4J talk to you
"He turned toward Sixth street and
Hampel replied: 'Well, I will talk to
"Then the first thing I knew, there
was a shot which seemed to be riglit
in my ear. Just at that moment Mr.
Morgan cried out with pain. He stum
bled and I turned around and there was
Hampel blazing away. I grappled with
him, my left hand graspinr* his hand
with the gun and my right at his
"I think two more shots were fired
that went wild, but whether they were
before or after I took hold of him I
cannot say. While we were grappling
we fell and I was under. T released my
- hold on his throat and with both hands I
grabbed his hand with the gun. Then
John Morgan, another employe, came
up and rolled Hampel off me. . I had
hold of the gun and jerked it. away
"In the meantime Mr. Morgan,
though tally: woundtad, had run to
- the office several hundred feet away.
Then others came to our assistance and
Officer Meyer came up and placed
Hampel under arrest. There was no
occasion for the shooting so far as I
know. Hampel was one of the em
ployes of the company and had not
been discharged. So far as I know he
never had any words with Mr. Morgan
before then and I cannot say what
caused him to do such a thing."

PROBABLE WORK OF MANIAC.
' Mutilated Body of Little Boy Is Found in
DETROIT. Mich.. Aug. 18.—The mutil
ated body of four-year-old Alphonse
Wilmes was found today in the rear of
the Michigan Stove works, wedged be
tween two molding boxes. The hands
were tied behind- with wire and a hand
kerchief had been stuffed down the boy's
throat. • The body v was partly | stripped of
clothing. The abdomen was stripped open,
and the left wrist was nearly severed.
The thighs also ha« long cuts in them.
Alphonse had. been .'. missing from his
home since yesterday noon. It is evident
that the murder was not committed near
where the body was ? found, r for ; although
there jis scarcely a drop of | blood . left in
the body, there was practically no blood
on the boards where he was found. There
were only a few small stains on the body
and clothing of the boy, despite the hor
rible character of his wounds. It looks as
though the murderer after committing the
deed, washed the blood from the body and
then carried it to the lot where it was
found. . : ...:■ :.••.-.- .--., -•_:..,,-.

clined to believe that the child was killed
in some house and that afterward the
murderer carried his body in a sack or a
wagon to the spot where it was found.
The last person who saw the boy alive
was a friend of the famjly who met him
on St. Aubin avenue near Franklin street,
which is a number of blocks from his
home, about 6 o'clock. He seemed to'be

BOYS TORTURE POOR
BOSSIE TO DEATH
John Norland and Gus Olson
Stick Firebrands Down a
The burning of negroes at the stake
has not been without its effect on the
juvenile element in the population of
Minneapolis. Recent lynchings and
barbecues have been the topic of con
versation, and accounts in the news
papers have been read by boys, whose
imaginations have been carried away
by fervid descriptions.
John Norland and Gus Olson, of
Minneapolis, were arrested yesterday
for torturing a cow to (Jeath with hot
cinders and firebrands. Detectives Sin
clair and Sullivan made the arrests.
Norland, after he was locked tip, ad
mitted that he was concerned in the
killing of the cow, but declared that he
had not committed the worst of the
atrocities perpetrated on the occasion.
The cow was tethered in a South side
lot when the lads say. her and decided
to emulate a Delaware mob In their
treatment of poor bossie. Accordingly
they stuck firebrands down the throat
of the cow and otherwise so maltreated
her that she died as a result.
The boys will have a hearing in the
police court tomorrow and the Hu

SODINI MUST STAND TRIAL.
Columbia Theater's Proprietor Accused of
Bribing Mayor Ames.
J. C. Sodini will have to stand trial
on the charge of giving a bribe of $1,000
to Dr. A. A. Ames with the understanding
that the Columbia "theater" was to have
no competition in the "variety" field.
Judge Elliott yesterday overruled the
demurrer to the indictments, and held
them to be good in every particular con
trary to the contention of the attorney
for Sodini who claimed that more than
one crime was charged.
The trial probably will be held at the
next term of court, but there is some
doubt as to whether a conviction can be
secured in view of the fact that John A.
Fitchette, whose statements before the
grand jury resulted in the indictment, is
now dead, and much of the evidence
available at the time the indictment was
found is not available.
PHYSICIAN DELAYS TOO LONG.
Man Whose Death Certificate He Was to

Fred Wilson, 2212 Twenty-sixth avenue
south, enjoys the unique distinction of
having had an opportunity to forbid the

Wilson is the man who was struck on
the head with a baseball bat taken home
in what was at first thought to be a fatal
condition. During the night he sank so
low that his family all thought he was
dead, and a physician was oaHed in to
prepare the death certificate. "
For some reason, however, the physi
cian put off the matter until the next
day, but before he could get around to It

Death of Alvarado, Who Six Years Ago

guarded by a strong force of men.
A year ago Alvarado made his first

ver Explain Accident Be
falling Mike Delles.
Mike Delles, ten years old, living with
his parents at 3*6 Phalen creek, was
shot in the mouth yesterday afternoon
at 2 o'clock by his cousin, Helmer
Bennett, aged eleven years. The shoot
ing is said to have been entirely acci
dental, and is said to have occurred
while the Bennett boy was examining
a 32-caliber revolver as he was stand-
Ing facing his cousin.
The bullet struck Mike Delles in the
lower lip, tore out two lower front
teeth, entering the tip of the tongue,
plowing two inches and lodging in its
root. Owing to the peculiar position of
the bullet, Dr. Charles H. Ball, who at
tended the boy, says that it will be ex
tremely difficult to extract it, and that
if no Inflammation sets in It might be
possible to allow it to remain.
The injured boy suffered considerable
pain and anxiety on account of the
wound, but Dr. Ball says that he is in
no danger unless complications set in.
The police made an investigation of
the shooting last night, but the parents
of th. Delles boy say that the affair
was a pure accident, and that they do
not want the Bennet boy, prosecuted.
BUILDING LINE NOT
A PRACTICABLE PLAN
Corporation Attorney Michael Thinks
It Too Complicated.
The work and expense attendant
upon the establishment of a building
line, authority for which was granted
cities by the last legislature, is not
likely to be a favorite with property
owners, according to Corporation At
"It's the worst mixed up affair I ever
saw," said Mr. Mk-haei yesterday.
"Here Marshall avenue property own
ers want a thirty-foot building line es
tablished, but I venture to say that
they will not want it when they find
out what they have to do.
"Instead of letting the board of pub
lic works do the work the law provides
for five appraisers, and they must fix
the benefits and damages to be paid.
After that is done there are a lot of
other formalities, so that when the
whole thing is completed the property
owner will be so disgusted that he will
not want to take part in another."
The law makes many requirements,
and because of its complex character
is not likely to have many calls. As
sessments are to be levied, and in some
cases they would be quite high.

A report was circulated to the effect
that McCarthy had Jumped from the

McCarthy was led away by the officer.
Though it was said that he had jumped

STATE WILL LOSE
ON FARMERS' LOAN
Advanced $3,700 in Hard Times, Which
Can't Be Collected.
Minnesota now Btands to lose $3,700,
which was loaned from the state funds
to Stevens county ten years ago for the
purchase of seed wheat for farmers
who were in need of help because of
poor crops. The county declines to pay,
taking the ground that the law author
izing the loan was unconstitutional.
In 1893, and from that to 1895, the
legislature authorized the state gov
ernment to loan money to farmers for
the purchase of seed grain; the crops
of the preceding years having been so
poor as to make such action a neces
sity. Under the provisions of this law
the money was loaned to the counties
and by them to the individual farmers
and bonds were furnished by the coun
