Dr. Hasselqalat Compllnm ted Coat
ac to a Close.
After the appointment of the editor-in
chief and assistant of the synod paper.
Avguttana, yesterday afternoon, twenty
flye associate editors were appointed, in
cluding Dr. IlasselquUt, the retiring ed
itor, who is to receive a salary of $600
per annum. The location of the paper
occupied considerable time, and a motion
at one time prevailed to leave it at Rock
Island, but it was finally left with the
editor In chief. Dr. Norelius, who by the
way, lives at Das a, Minn., now, and this
means that the paper will continue to be
published at Rock Inland.
The fact that on, next Sunday Dr. lias
elquist, the president of the college, will
have reached the fiftieth anniversary of
his ordination in Sweden, came up and
remarks of a feeling and congratulatory
nature were made during which a purse
of $100 was presented to Dr. Hasscluuist,
who was visibly affected.
This morning was consumed in the
discussion of the new constitution for the
seminary which was finally referred to
the board of education.
The resignation of Dr. Uasselquist as
president of Augustana College, was re
ported but no action taken.
The synod will adjourn tonight.

A Tea Dollar Oouoterlrit.
A new counterfeit ten dollar United
States treasury note is being shoved Tn
many of the cities of the western states
The bill is of the series of 1873. check
letter C. and numbered A 236339 E. The
notes have a greasy and washed-out ap
pearance. The paper on which they are
printed is lighter than that used in the
genuine bills, and two silk threads are
lacking. The vignette of Daniel Web
ster is so poorly done that it would ap
pear no excuse would be offered for ac
cepting one ot the counterfeits. The
nose does not continue from the fore
head, but appears as a protuberance just
above the mouth. The lips are too low
on the face, being almost on the chin.
In fact, the likeness is more that of a
rough than of the eminent statesman.
The engraving of the vignette is badly
done, and the shading consists of coarse
lines. The poor quality of the red and
preen links is easily noticeable. Captain
Porter, of the secret service, secured
three of tnese bills at Decatur, and a
great many have been refused at the
banks in Chicago.

Service Board Seems To Be In Dead
Earnest Its Visit to Indianapolis.
Philadelphia, June 19. Tbe people of
the state of Pennsylvania voted yester.
iay on the question of Incorpora
ting an amendment prohibiting the
manufacture or sale of intoxicating
liquors in the state constitution. An amend
ment abolishing tbe poll-tax qualification for
voter was also voted upon.
A Vigorous Campaign.
Probably no political campaign in the his
tory of the state has been more vigorously
conducted than has that of the advocates ot
temperance. Nightly meetings have been
held in every county running up into thou
sands, and eloquent speakers have been
brought from near and afar to Impress upon
the people the advantages of total prohibi
tion. The liquor interest bas been equally
active, and between the two parties a good
many barrels of money have been s-nt The
tamfiaign has had tbe active aid of Postmas
ter General Wanainaker, who has worked
vigorously on tbe side of the Prohibitionists,
and the cause of tbe latter has also been
rhampioned by ten of thousands of the gen
Women and Children at Work.
At many places throughout the state ladies
were at tbe polls all day, and at others the
children were put at work giving out tickets.
In some places prayer meetings were held all
day. In Pittsburg tbe women voters en
countered mauy unpleasant experiences, but
with all made a gallant fight Brass bands
and children singing could lie seeu almost
everywhere in Pittsburg and Allegheny and
presented a picturesque sight. Generally,"
however, the women were treated at the
polls with tbe greatest respect.
The Kesult Is a Tidal Wave.
The vote began to come in early anil Indi
cated a big majority against tbe prohibition
amendment Philadelphia city complete
gives 93,14 majority against that amend
ment, and Hu,801 majority for the amend
ment abolishing the poll-tax. Pittsburg
complete, ltl,54(.) majority against it and Al
legheny City over 4,000. The majority
against the amendment will be ',000 in Al
legheny county. The strength of tbe prohi
bitionist was in the country districts, as usual,
while the cities rolled up the anti-prohibition
majorities, also as usual.
The latest returns are up to 2 a. m. to-day.
Sixty-four of the sixty -seven counties in the
state give ltU.470 majority against the Pro
hibition amendment. Carbon, Clinton, and
Elk counties .are yet to be heard from.
Forty-two counties (not including Allegheny)
give 4,535 majority for abolishing the poll
tax, but the rural districts voted against this
amendment and it is probably lost
The Vote at Johnstown.
Johnstown, Pa., June 19. Johnstown
gives a majority of 6 against the amend
ment The vote in the seven wards was as
follows: For amendment, 437; against, 443.
A very light vote was polled in all the
wants, and the election was entirely devoid
of excitement or incident No election
board was organised in the Third ward until
after 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and no vote
wa cast until that time. In tbe other wards
tbe voting places were located in incon
venient and inaccessible places.
MAKING MATTERS LIVELY.
The Civil Service Reform Commission
Making Itself Understood.
Indianapolis, Ind., June 19. Mr. Roose
velt, the civil-service commissioner, made
matters very lively at the postoftice yester
day for Postmaster Wallace, who looks not
unlike Charles A. Dana, of New York. As
sistant Postmaster Thompson (who tried in
vain to talk as fast as Mr. Roosevelt the local
board of examiners), and Dudley Foulke,
whose hobby is civil-service reform, were
also in attendance. Mr. Roosevelt said to
Postmaster Wallace at the outset: "You
can reinstate any old soldier without refer
ence to his bavi ng been out of the office more
than a year." J
Had a Penchant for Gambling.
Then the case ot Charles E. Moore was
taken up. It bad been charged that Moore,
while In the mail service under Postmaster
Jones, was convicted ot gambling, notwith
standing which he was reinstated by Post
master Wallace. Capt Dodd, ex-deputy
postmaster, testified that he had warned
Moore to quit gambling, and Moore himself
admitted that be had been asked by Post
master Jones to resign on account of his
gambling propensities, which be did without
protest lie said that upon his arrest he
gave a bond of ' $40, but failed to appear in
court to answer the charge, lie also ad
mitted that he got bis f 40 bark, as it was un
derstood to be straw bail
PiMtmaster Jones' Idea.
Charles W. Riggs, who bas passed the
ctvll service examination, was interrogated.
He said that when he applied to Postmaster
Jones for a place he was asked what polit
ical candidate be bait voted for, which led
Mr. Roosevelt to declare that such an act on
the part of a postmaster would justify the
oommissioners in asking for bis removal.
When Mr. Roosevelt came to the cases of
Messrs. Wheat and Tousoy, dispatching clerk
and city distributor, he said very peremp
torily: "Mr. Wallace, you will discharge
those men at once."
Must Change His Practice.
These with some others had been given po
sitions for party service, and bail not been
required to stand examination. Assistant
Postmaster Thompson was disposed to kick
at the summary manner in which Tousey
and Wheat were dismissed. Mr. Roosevelt
asked b iu: "Do you, in the light of recent
developments, consider these selections
"Yes, sir, was the answer.
"Well, don't act on that thought"
. Wants It Understood.
Commissioner Roosevelt said he would like
to have the newspapers announce that the
abstHhte impartiality of examinations was
guaranteed, and It was a misdemeanor' pun
ishable by fine and imprisonment to cor
ruptly favor any applicant He had seen a
newspaper interview in which Postmaster
Wallace was alleged to have said that he
would give preference where he could to re
publicans. The postmaster declared that he had bean
misunderstood, a he had only referred to
The. Worst Stroke of AIL
Re then requested that a special examina
tion to be ordered, saying he had twelve pe
titions to fill and that only fourteen eligible
ware at hi disposal The commission re
fused to order tbe special examination, hold
ing that fourteen eligible were quit enough
to fill twelve vacancies. Every one of the
fourteen is a Democrat, all having passed
the examination months ago.
Politic in Ohio,
Washington Citt, June 19. Representa
tive Williams, of Ohio, in an interview yester
day said: "The thing that is now occupying
the attention of the folks in Ohio is the gov
ernorship. There is no doubt in the world
that Foraker will be renominated. It is
known now that he will accept the nomination,
and that practically settles the matter. He
could, if be wanted, be the successor to Sen
ator Payne, but he is not after that"
Speaking of the speakership contest in the
next house, CoL William said be thought
the contest lay between Reed and McKinley.
fliw York, June 19. Governor Foraker is
her and was asked last night if he was a
candidate for renominatiou. Ha replied that
he was not, and would not take it.

Chicago, June 19. "The arrest of Martin
Burke at Winnipeg is the most important
yet effected. He is deeper in the plot than
any of the men now in Jail" So said Chief of
Police Hubbard last night
From other sources a summary of tbe evi
dence affecting the suspect, and which will
be submitted to the grand jury, has been
Burke Was Bloodthirsty.
A prominent north side Irishman will
testify that but a few weeks before the mur
der Burke remarked in a public place that
Le Caron should have been killed before he
had a chance of leaving for England and
that there was another fellow who would
"get it" before he was many weeks older. It
will be shown that Burke aud ex-Detective
Coughlin were frequently seen together in
saloons on tbe north side and that the former
was a frequent visitor at the cottage of Ice
Uls Aunt a Witness Against lflni. ..
But the most important witness will be old
II rs. Philbin, Burke's aunt and in whose
bouse at Erie and Sedgwick streets he
boarded. By her it will be shown that he
lost his position in the city sewer depart
ment last December, aud has since had uo
employment Up to February he was short
of funds, ran in debt for his board and bor
rowed an occasional dollar wherever be could
Suddenly Flush of Money.
From that time on to his sudden flight
from the city he had plenty of money more,
in fact than when he was working. Ou tbe
day of Dr. Cfonin's disappearance he was
absent from home He did not return all
night Sunday morning at 8 b put in an
appearance, heavy and sleepy, and in reply
to questions said that he had slept all night
at the iceman's house. It will also be shown
that he was an active member of the inner
circle of camp 20, of the Clan-na-Gael. An
officer will leave for Winnijeg as soon as the
necessary papers can be procured.
The Grand Jury Still Inquiring.
The grand jury spent over an hour yes
terday afternoon in going through the
twenty or more telegrams and cable dis
patches produced by the Western Union offi
cials, and supposed to have a bearing on the
case. All the members of the body, how
ever, had taken a special iujunction of se
crecy regarding the documents, and not a
hint of what had been developed could be
A Friendly Contempt Case.
When the telegrams were first demanded
from the Western Union official he refused
to produce them, as tbe company is under
obligations of secresy in such matters to its
patrons. It wa then proposed, in order to
secure the company against loss by damage
suits, that an order from Judge Shepard he
obtained declaring the telegraph official in
contempt because he refused to produce the
telegrams. This was agreed to and tbe or
der obtained. The telegrams were then
brought into court and the official purged of
Lester's Books Called For.
The jurors were not satisfied with the ab
stract of Sullivan's operations submitted by

half a ton of which were hauled into court.

tbe office life of Alexander Sullivan. Rob

operations on tbe board of trade.
BURKE HELD FOR IDENTIFICATION.
He Is Anxious for a Habeas Corpus Mys
Winnipeg, Man., June 19. Burke was
arraigned before a police magistrate yester
day, aud remanded for ton days at tbe re
quest of Chief of Police McRae, who sub
mitted telegrams from the Chicago authori
ties, to the effect that papers and copies of
photographs tending to show that he is the
mysterious "Williams" were on their way
Want to Get Away.
Burke was very nervous, and urged his
lawyer to institute habeas corpus proceed
ings without delay. The latter, however,
after looking over tbe dispatches, concluded
that it would be useless to comply with the
request and tbe prisoner went back to jail.
Two mysterious individuals strangers in
town were in court and endeavored to en
gage in conversation with the suspect. They
were, however, prevented. It is surmised
that they are here in the interest of people
who are anxious that Burke shall not be re
turned to Chicago.

night Lieut Archer left on the Baker Sal
vage Wrecking company's steamer Peed for
Assistance Sent Forward.
Lieut Tyler, acting under instructions
from Commodore Brown at the Norfolk
navy yard, has chartered the iron tug Nor
folk to go to the assistance of the war ship.
Tbe Constellation lies so close io-shore, how
ever, and Is in such a position that she can
not be hauled off by boats, but cables and
hawsers must be used. The vicinity where
she is ashore is a decidedly dangerous one,
and one where many wrecks have taken
place. It is always given a wide berth by
mariners, and it is thought tbe Constella
tion's commander allowed his ship to be car
ried too near in-shore by the perilous current
before recognizing the danger of his position,
or that bis compasses were out of order.
Naval Cadets on Board.
The Constellation had on board 1 JO cadets
from tbe naval academy, who started from
Annapolis last week on their summer cruise,
and a crew of 175 men. Tbe cadets are much
disheartened and as a heavy sea is now run
ning much inconvenienced. Their position
is not considered a dangerous one, as there
are a number of people on shore with the ap
paratus of the life-saving station ready to
render them assistance at a moment's notice.
Situation Getting More Perilous.
A telegram received over the signal office
wires at 11:30 last night from Cape Henry
says that the Constellation is slowly work
ing her way m-sbora Efforts sre being
made to establish communication with her
from the beach by means of tbe breeches
buoy. Some think she will be a total loss
if the wind increases. From last "reports it
was blowing at the rate of thirty miles an
Later. The life savers have gotten a Hue
to the Constellation and rigged the breeches
bouy, but no one has yet been taken off the

FREIGHT RATES TAKE A DROP.
General Demoralisation Among the Ball
way at Chicago.
Chicago, June 19 The excitement in rail
road circles here, caused by the prospective
rate war, is at fever beat The demoraliza
tion of freight rates has extended as far west
as Marshalltown, la., and south to the north
ern boundary of Missouri. The St Paul and
Kansas City road was the first to apply the
28 cents first-class rate to Marshalltown, but
the Reck Island quickly followed with re
ductions to Ottnmwa and Oskaloosa. This
compelled the Burlington to reduce its rates,
and the result was that rata all over the
eastern half of Iowa dropped to tbe war
basis of 28 cents, first class. The disintegra
tion of rates is proceeding very rapidly in
spite of the effort of the roads to confine the
cut to as small a territory a possible.
