the alleged theft of a hatchet valued
at 50 cents from John McDonald.
Darker, whose present home is on
Ninth street, formerly occupied a
house owned by McDonald and when
he moved the hatchet disappeared.
While the preponderance of evidence
was unfavorable to the defendant,
1he justice was disposed to give him
a show, continuing' the case until to
morrow morning at 9 o"chck.
"I5y that hour. said Justice Sehri
ver, "you must show me a receipt for
the delivery of a hatchet, either the
one that is missing or one equally ns
good, to McDonald. If you fulfill this
condition I will dismiss the case
against you. If you do not. you must

IS STILL EXPERIMENTING
CM. & St. P. Seeking; to Perfect Electric
Lights for Trains.
One of the many practical objects
in the realm of railroad operation,
which has attracted the attention of
our technical schools, is the lighting
of trains. The Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul railway,' which is the pio
neer in the lighting of trains by elec
tricity, recently received an inquiry
upon this subject Jrom the Mas.sa
chusett Institute of Technology,
which upon being referred to the pro
per authorities has brought out some
The lighting of trains by electricity
on this road was begun over 16 years
ago, and during that time the mana
gers have experimented with many
different systems. They have found,
however, that the most successful,
and without tlonbt the most reliable
end efficient system for solid trains,
is that in which a dynamo is operated
by a small engine located in the bag
gage car and taking steam from the
locomotive.. .Each car uf: the trnii 3
equipped with an auxiliary storage
battery. By this means it is made
possible for the lighting to continue
uninterrupted when locomotives arc
changed at terminals.
The St. Paul has nine such trains in
service every night consisting of an
average of ten cars of all kinds. Chief
electrician C. R. Cillman. states that
the failure from all causes have aver
aged about . per cent of the hours of
lighting, and that 4 per cent of this
is due to the failure of locomotives
in severe winter weather.
Altogether the St. Paul road has 2S3
cars equipped for this method of
lighting. There are 14G coaches, 60
sleepers, mail cars. 12 dining, 19
baggage. IS parlor and 5 buffet cars.
In addition to this number the com
pany has 8 coaches and i sleepers,
which are lighted entirely by storage
batteries. The electrical department
is now experimenting with axle light
ing devices, with which it has equip!
three cars with as many systems.

SALSBURY AGAIN A WITNESS
Tells of His Promise f Al.OOO to Alder,
nian Slot Defense Ohjeets to
Grand Rapids. Mich., Feb. 4. A
jury was secured to try AkLermnn
James Mol on the charge of accepting
a bribe to aid the Lake Michigan wat
er deal. Of the twelve jurymen eight
have served in oue of the water, scan
dal cases in which a verdict of guilty
was brcight in, and the ninth has
served in two of the cases in w-hich. a
verdict of guilty was rendered. Be
cause of this fact the defense entered
a last formal motion to remove all of
these jurymen for cause, but the court
refused to dis-miss them. Proseeutor
Ward then made the oeuiiig state
ment, declaring that he would slow
that Alderman Mol corruptly accepted
$3- for his vote in the water deal.
Ex-City Attorney Lant K. Salsbury
was the first witness for. the people.
Salsbury swore that he had asked
Corey P. Pissell to see Mol, but that
before Itissell did so Salsbury himself
talked with the alderman. Salsbury
could not fix the date of the talk def
initely, saying that it was between
June ir and Sept. 1. Salsbury said:
"I told. Mol that there were partlea
here to get through a water deal, and
there was money In it, and he could
have some of it. He agreed to go in,
and I promised him $l,OUO, telling him
that he could have it later. I asked
him to keep quiet, but assured him
that there were other members of the
council in it.
