HENDERSON WILL COME,
Look Oat far Little Taffy A boat .et

Congressman Henderson will be here
on Monday nigbt and will speak at liar
per's theatre in favor of the republican
party. The people here cannot but be
ever grateful to Mr. Henderson for bis
untiring efforts in behalf of tbe Hennepin
canal. Tbe only thing tbey will regret is
the fact that Mr. Henderson will be
coached to give expression to some cam
paign taffy by saying that he never could
nave accomplished so much in the way of
the canal if it had not been for tbe assis'
tance given him by Mr. Gest He may
wear a solemn face when he says it, but
inwardly he will chuckle in a most de
lightful manner. And everybody will in
dulge in a little chuckle also. Mr. Hen
derson ia here solely to help out Gest.
He will have bis labor for his pains.
Wiit ahould Reed find it necessary to
defend bis recent rulings at every stop
ping place? Why should McKinley grow
frantic in defending his bill? If both
were good neither would require any de
fence. Their merits would be seen . A
man on trial for a crime. is not afraid to
tell tbe truth and the whole truth if be be
innocent. He requires no one trained
in criminal procedure to watch tbe form
of questions nor the shape of the an
swers. He can be given every latitude,
and. ULless he is' naturally timid, it re
quires an expert bull -dozing cross -examiner
to confuse him. On tbe other hand
if ha be guilty his attorney is In a fever
for fear he shall tell the truth, and should
by accident such a thing occur the result
is well nigh dissstrous, and It requires
considerable ingenuity and volubility to
divert the minds of the jury from bring-
-ing in verdict against him.
This ia the case precisely with Reed
ad McKinley. Reed Is tbe attorney for
those who uphold outrageous methods in
a deliberate body; McKinley appears for
the robber manufacturers.

Commlaalon or the Atrocity.
Fox went to the house at 761 Twentieth
street, near Wood, short y after 7 o'clock
yesterday morning and was in tbe net ut
raining a window when discovered by
Mrs. Kohler. She tried to fasten the
window, but Fox struck her in the stom
ach and knocked her down. He epmng
into the window, drew a vial from his
pocket and poured the contents 01 on
her face no'U neck. She strutrtrle.I and
endeavored to protect her fiice
with her apron, bat the fluid horribly
burned her hands, left cheek, and netk,
and ran down her back, shoulders and
som, frightfully burning her. Her
clothing was burned iuto shreds. Her
screams brought the neighbors, wio
summoned Dr. K. A. Muller, of T1H Twea-ty-Hrst
street. Fox in the meantime
jumped from the window and ran awar.
The Old IMory of Sin.
Mrs. Kohler was suffering terribly yes
terday afternoon, but was able to tell h r
story. She aaid fche married a man named
Kohler iu New York, and removed to S-aa
Francisco with him, where they lived a. I
years. She left bim and went back to
Germany. Returning to America about
three years ago, .-he went to Rochester,
Y., and there met Fox. He wanted her t )
marry him, and perruaded her 10 come to
Chicago, promising to prom re a divorci)
for her, and then marry her. They
reached here about two years ago, and
went to living together as man mid wife,
both working lo earn money. Some
months ngotbey went to keeping board
ers at 745 Twenty-second street. Fox be
gan drinking, would tnke all the money
in the house, remain away for days at a

wanted to be admitted, bot slie was
afraid of him and refuted to let him in.
He swore vengeance, raying he would "fix
her so no person else would have anything
to do with her." She ?nys he was jealous
without cause, as she has nlways been
faithful to bim.
Jealous of His Mistresa.
"I was crazy, I guess," Fox said at rla
police statiou. hWe agreed w.th each
other until we began keepiug botrden I
caught her making secret meetings w ith
them. When I'd any anything to her
about it ahe would call in tbe board
ers, and of co ursa I could not
say a word. She is my wife. V

out here. She has the certificate. I sup
pose. 1 love her. and 1 thought I would
fix her so nobody would have anything to
do with her and she would stick to me. I
am not sorry I did it."

"WILDLY EXCITED" PEOPLE.
The Minions of Her Majesty Kidnap an
Detroit. Oct. The American popu
lation at St. Clair Flats, Detroit's hunt
ing and pleasure grounds, are wildly ex
cited over a jts of kidnapping. Law
rence Sulio is the son of the moot noted
hunter at the flats, ami well known to
sportsmen all over the country. On Mon
day Sulio went bunting and shot game on
the Canadian side, but where tbe shoot
ing was open. The gamekeeper employed
by a club comprised of gentlemen from
Toronto captured tbe boy for shooting
British ducks and confined him in the
Will Aak for Ext ajirill Inn.
Tbe sportsmen then tried to get a war
rant from the 1'ort Lumbron justice for
poaching, but that worthy refused, and
they took the boy thirty miles to another
Canadian magistrate, where they had bim
fined. His people were fritrbtened at the
boy's absence, and wild with rage when
they learned what had been done to him.
As the place w here the boy was arrested
is free water, the capture becomes kid
napiug. and Sulio will ask that they be
extradited for it.
BILLINGS DcMANDS AC3JITTAL.

EW Hauptos, Ia., Oct. 25 M. E.
Billings, who is out on b til, visited this
this place Wedne-day. He will not accept
a discharge by the prosecution, but will
demand a jury, which will formally pass
upon the evidence. Thia, of course, means
an acquittal, as the state has no more evi
dence to offer, and the supreme court has
decided lhat it is insufficient to convict.
Kot Asking a Pardon.
He states that he was directly informed
that Governor iioies would have pardoned
him had he asked it, but he said he should
never have done ao iu any event. He has
spent all his properry about (6,000 in
defending himself against tbe proceed

after bis case is dismissed and stay with his

Tbe Mala Statesman's Speech.
His speech followed the lines of those
delivered in other parts of the state aud
of Iowa. He defended tbe action of the
house iu adopting rules that enable 1 the
majority to do.wlint it wanted in the way
of legislation, advocated the principles
of the McKinley bill, and denounced
Democratic obstruction. He dwelt at
length on the southern, question, declar.
ing that twenty-six ' seats in the lower
house of congress were held by virtue of
intimidation, fraud an t ballot-box stuf

"force bill" was the only remedy for this

Coventor Hill at Wheeling.
Wheeling, W. Va, Oct. 2. The big
gest political demonstration held here for
some time was gotten up to welcome Gov

rounding country brought hundreds of
people to swell the crowd. A torchlight
procession was tbe first thing last even
ing, and it escorted the governor to the
Grand Opera house, which was full to the
doors, with an enthusiastic crowd. The
governor made a refrain throughout his
peech of the words, "the tariff is a tax."
He declared, however, that tbe Mills bill
was tbe embodiment of the Democratic
idea as the way iu which the tariff should
be adjusted. He then took up the Lodge
bill, and denounced it as a bitterly parti
san measure, framed to continue the Re
publican party in power. At th-conclusion
of his remarks which lasted

The Democratic and Republican com

nd their rooms present a deserted ap
pearance, both committees express con
fidence in the result, but neither is in
tlnlgingfin any bloster. It is felt tbe cir
cumstances surrounding this election ae
unusually uncertain, owing to the tor ff

tbe redisricting of various states and
other special causes. The managers at

his view of the subject of discussion. Yes
terday tbe governor's, or Soncrant bill,
wis advanced in the bouse to third read
ing, tbe speaker being one of those who
spoke against it. Tbe general tenor of
tbe remarks on tbe Democratic side is
thitt it is bad politics to turn over tbe
board to the Republicans, and that it is
un Democratic to condemn the members
of t be board without a trial.' The bill
was finally passed practically as it came
from tbe senate, and the work of the

DISCOVERED A WONDERFUL OB.
It Knocks the Dynamo Oat of liealaeaa
ST. .tAotrsE, N. Y., tct 2V. L. A. Dixon,
of Sodt:s, has made the discovery of a won
derful ore called Vlectric rock," which
contains a bid Jen force that pnti'es and
astonishes all who see it, and expert elec
tricians in particular. Tbe rock is of a
dark slate color, and somewhat lighter in
weight than sandstone. It is composed of
iron, aluminum, calcinra and other min
erals, and particle ot gold are found
Cheaper I.lxht Than Keroseao.
Mr. Dixon says it will generate unlim
ited power and give any desired amount
of incandescent liuht For illuminating
business places and residences it would
be considerably cheaper than kerosene
in fact after the building had been wired
and the batteries prepared the ro-t would
be merely nominal, and tbe light would
be equal, if not superior, to that produced
by manufactured electricity. The mak
ing of tbe battery is very simple. The
rock, in any quantity that Is desired, is
placed in jars containing a solution, the
chief ingredients of w bich are salt and
water. The circuit is then completed and
tbe battery is ready for active business.
Great on Hell Rlnglaa;.
The discover claims that as chargeer
of 4-St pounds of the rock w lit last and
produce light and power for at least a
year la-fore losing its force, and that it is
perfectly harmless, making insulation
entirely utnieces-ary. In Mr. Dixou 'a of
fice a nine pound piece of rock has bren
ring'u3 a l II since last November. A
piece weighing half a pound was placed
in a pint tumbler, and wires atlached to
the rail bell, which it caused to ring as
loud as an alarm clock. The lest was
made in the prv-ence of several getlemen,
who pronounced it a wonderful discovery.
