The B teonlan Sas;e Vindicated by a JTary
of Twelve Men.
Minnkapolis, Oct. 26. The fair name
of Ignatius Donnelly, politician, littera
teur, and philosopher, was damaged by
the St. Paul Pioneer Press to the extent
of ft At least so found a jury of twelve
citizen i of Hennepin county at 9 o'clock
Saturday evening. Mr. Donnelly had
sued fcr tUOO.OOO, but he was just as happy
as a Bf hoolboy over securing the verdict
for a dollar. When he heard the result
he dapped his lawyer on the back and
said: "iJoodl Good! Goodl I didn't want
the nev.-spaper's money, but I sought vin
dication. This I got. The Pioneer Press
editor lias been attacking me with most
evident malice for twenty five years, and
this rq tares accounts.

Judge Flandreau.wbo summed up for The
Pioneer Press, was very rough on the sage
of Nini lger. He said: "Why, 'Atlantis'
It the worst plagiarism a man could
write. It is entirely from the French.
'Ragnarok' 1s the worst fraud ever per

the worst nonsense even inflicted on the

devoted his life to L Donnelly. Every
thing Is dona for him. He never did any
thing ii tiis world but hold office. He
hasn't ever created anything. When he
couldn't get in any other party he started
the party of Donnelly and went it alone,"
The rasa Given to the Jury.
In closing the case for Donnelly Mr.
Wellington said. that the editor ot The
Pioneer Press had been maliciously at
tacking Mr. Donnelly for over twenty
years. The most important point in
Jndge Hooker's charge was that unless
"they were satisfied Donnelly gave the
letter tr- the Washington correspondent
of The I ioneer Press Donnelly was en
tilted to recover damages, even if only
nominal." The jury was nearly five

were taken in all the amonnt of damages

HAS A BILlT AGAINST CHILE.
Another American Grievance to Settle '
A a Opinion f the Situation. . . j
Chicack), Oct. 24. W. F. Burns, a naJ
tive of iian Francisco, lately engaged in
the secret service of the Chilian govrnJ
ment under Balmaceda, has been in Chi'
cago for nearly a week. During that time
he has been in every day communication
with the state department, and to-day he
will leave for Washington for a oonsulta
tion with Assistant Secretary Wharton,
which may result in adding to the seri
ousness cf the present strained relations
with the Chilian government. Mr. Burns
asserts that while in Berlin he was throws
into prist n without trial by the German
police at the instigation of tbe Chilian
governmtnt, and he demands satisfaction
from Chi i and Germany. According to
bis statements he was in Berlin purchas
ing arms for Balmaceda when the news
ot the Balmaceda government's fall was
Thii ks Eg-an Must Coma Home.
When naked what he thought of the
position cf Minister Eau, he said:
I don't tl ink he can stay there. Egan was
certainly L and iu glore with Bttlmaoeda, and
even if the junta are a lot of scoundrels, as I
believe they are, they hare lUe legal right to
turn him back to AmeriM. They ar not
afraid of this country none of the South
American nations are. AU their dealings are
with Eurc pean countries. Why, when the
United Stt tea sent the Tallahassee or some
other tub t Ecuador a year or two ago that
little count ry sent down to Chili to ask if Chili
would help Ecuador in a fight with the United
States. Th ink of that!
Mr. Burns declared with a good deal ot
earnestness that be didn't believe Balma
ceda was dead. He would not tell why.
AN IMPLICATION OF BRIBERY.
Sensation in Connection with Wisconsin's
Madisok, Wis., Oct. 28. -Judge Sle
becker has caused a sensation by announc
ing that he will not try the Interest suits
against th state treasurers because of
certain reasons which he. refuses to make
public at tils time. The inference is that
the JudgD has been approached, but
whether at attempt to bribe him has been
made or w iether political influence has
been brought to bear upon him is a mat
ter of speculation.
Attorney General O'Connor is dumb
fonnded and is loud in his denunlcation
of those wl o have made it impossible for
an upright judge to try the treasury suit,
and the attorneys for the defendant are
equally indignant and want to know what
has happened. Judge Siebecker says that
if be made mown at this time bis reasons
for withdrawing it would be impossible
to get a fal r and impartial trial Of tbe
cases in t ie state ot Wisconsin. He
promises d velopments hereafter.

Washington. Oct 23. Senator Black
burn, who is in the city for a few days,
talks freely about Democratic presiden
tial candidates and his, attitude toward
Cleveland. When told that he had been
credited with saying that he is about the
only man in Kentucky who is against
Cleveland as the Democratic standard
bearer in 1893, he said:
That is not a fair way of putting my posi
tion. If when the time comes to make a nom
ination Mr. Cleveland appears to be the strong
est man in the party, and the man with whom
we can win, 1 will be for him. I know a num
of people have tried to make it appear that at
the recent Democratic convention in my state
1 struck a blow at Cleveland. I did not. I
was, it is true, chairman of the committee on
resolutions that drafted the party platform,
Free Silver Good IeinocratIc Doctrine.
In that platform I incorporated a free silver
coinage plank. Some people said that I did it
as a slap at Cleveland on account of what I
considered his injudicious, unnecessary, and
gratuitous silver letter. As a matter of fact,
Mr. Cleveland was not in my mind at all. I
kept within the lines of the national Demo
cratic platform of 18S4 upon that subject. I
did not mean to slap at Mr. Cleveland or any
other man. He had accepted the nomination
upon the platform of 1884, had gone to the
country, and had been elected president. It
was a broad declaration of friendship to
silver, and if there has been any change in the
party front upon this national issue since
1884 down to the present I do not know it.
Cleveland Not Indicated Just Now.
That the tariff is the pivotal issue in tbe con
test all intelligent men know, and all honest
men admit, but to ignore the currency and
silver issue some people think would be a mis
take, and with their conclusions I am dis
posed to agree. I am frank to confess, that at
the present time Mr. Cleveland does not ap
pear to be the most available candidate, but
the present conditions may change by next
spring. I know that in 1888 there were ele
ments in New York who deliberately knifed
Mr. Cleveland, and thus kept the Democratic
party out of the control of the executive
branch of the government. I have learned
nothing since then to make me believe that
these Democrats have either repented or re
lented, or tuat they will not do worse n"xt
time. I do not believe that either Cleveland
or Hill can carry New xork. The factional
fight is too great. If it is necessary to have a
candidate from New York there are other men
upon whom all can unite.
Prefers a Western Man Anyway.
But I hope the day will come, if it has not
already come, when ihe Democratic party will
not be dependent upon New York for its
standard-bearer. There has been no Demo
cratic candidate for the presidency since Bu
chanan's time who has not come from New
York. McClellan was said to be from New
Jersey, but everybody knows he was a New
York man. Hancock was accredited to Penn
sylvania, but I doubt if he bad lived in that
state for twenty years. The Republican party,
on the contrary, has always taken its presi
dent from the west, around Ohio, Illinois and
Indiana, and we ran learn a lesson from them.
If Campbell wins his fight in Ohio this year
it will certainly put him in the foremost list of
Western Democrats will be interested
in knowing that another movement to
make William R. Morrison, of Illinois, a
candidate for the presidency is on foot.
The suggestion does not come from Illi
nois, nor from the west, for that matter,
but from tbe south and southwest, where
a number of Democratic leaders are so
wedded to the tree silver idea that they
are looking for a man to nominate in
place ot Cleveland.
A Scheme to Make It Eay for Every Man
Gainesville, Tex, Oct. 26. The sub
treasury party, which is very strong in
Montague county, held a meeting Friday
and adopted some remarkable resolutions.
The preamble sets forth that, on account
of the scarcity of money and because of
the fact that prices are lower than pro
ducers desire to take, congress be de
manded to pass a bill that shall embody
the following features:
Section 1. That any person who owes more
money than he can pay and who makes affida
vit to that effect, properly attested by two of
the creditors who want their pay, and who
makes application to the secretary of the inte
rior, shall receive from the secretary sufficient
money to pay all debts.
Money at Yonr Own Price.
Pec. 2. Any person who owes mure money
than he can pay, but who wants to hold his
property until he can sell at an advantageous
price, shall be entitled to the privilege of sec
Sec. 3. Any person owing nothing, but who
wants more money than he Bees a good chance
of obtaining on account of the prevailing
financial system of robbery and oppression,
who makes application to that effect and states
what rate per cent, he is willing to pay, and if
he thinks he can pay at all, shall make such
application to the secretary, who shall refer
the matter to an advisory board to consist of
three, who shall fix the amount to be ad
vanced the applicant.- In no case, however,
shall he receive less than three-quarters of the
sum applied for, nor be charged a higher rate
of interest than he is willing to pay.
An Unnecessary Section.
Pec. 4. The secretary of the Interior shall
keep a record of the names of those making
applications, tbe amounts loaned, etc., and in
caea any one fails to pay he shall
not receive more than SO per cent on next ap
plication. But of course everybody will pay,
for money will be plentiful.
Bsc S. The secretary shall supply applicants
with blanks at each postofflce and the applica
tion shall t forwarded free of postage.
Sec. 6. Every person making misrepresenta
tion in the application shall forfeit one-quarter
of the amount loaned to him, and be debarred
from borrowing more than twice.

BETWEEN DIVORCE AND MARRIAGE
This Woman Seems to Keep Herself Tol
erably Well Employed.
BCCHASAN, Mich., Oct 26. Mary Mach
ett, of this city, married George Swear
inger at 16, and a daughter was born to
tbein. They were divorced, and Swear
inger went to Colorado and made a for
tune in mining, while she married S. J.
Sherwood, who soon died. Shortly after
his death she was wedded to George
Thompson, teller in a bank here. A few
years rolled by and Thompson was sent to
state prison at Jackson, and his wife se
cured a divorce. Immediately upon his
release he and Mrs. Swearinger-Sherwood-Thompson
were married again.
Another Divorce and fiwearlnger Affain.
A year ago he went away and his wife
got another divorce on the ground ot de
sertion, the decree being granted last
Tuesday. Ten days ago Swearinger, the
first husband, came back and a reconcilia
tion was effected. Friday morning a
marriage license was issued for Swear
inger to marry his former wife, and the
ceremony was performed by the Rev. J.
C. Colby, an old Methodist, who married
the same couple just twenty years ago.
Swearinger, while in Colorado, married a
woman who died four years ago.
And Mow Hera Comas Thompson.
Mrs. Swearinger is now 86 years old,
and in twenty years has doubly married
the same man twice, has secured three
divorces and has been a widow. She was
"a grandmother at 82. The peculiar feature
of the case is that two weeks ago Thomp
son wrote to his ex-wlfe, inclosed some
money and said that he was going to re
turn to her. .The letter was dated San
Francisco, and was not received until the
day after the womn got her divorce.
Mrs. Swearinger is handsome, and from
the numerous offers cannot think mar
riage is a failure.
WON A SIX-DAY BIKE RACE.
A Man from Detroit Takes the first
Money at Gotham.
New Yobk, Oct 20. At 12:13 a. m
Sunday last fourteen men started at Mad
ison Square garden on a "bike" race of
six-days duration, go-as-you-please. It
did not taka many days to reduce the
number to six Martin, Ashingsr, Lamb
(an Englishman), Schock, Albert and
Royst Martin, who is a Detroiter, soon
took the lead, and kept it continually un
til tbe end, his closets competitor being
Ashinger. At 10:13 p. m. Saturday the
race was finished with the following
record: Martin, 1,466 miles 4 laps; Ash
inger, 1,441 miles 1 lap; Lamb, 1,362 miles;
Schock, miles 5 laps; Albert, 1,308
miles 4 laps; Royst, 1,301 miles 5 laps.
About 9 p. m. there was great enthusi
asm and tbe riders were showered with
flowers. Then some one in a box arose,
and, unwrapping a tS bill from a roll,
threw it at Martin. Others followed his
example, and (1, t2, and (3 bills were
showered upon both Martin and Ashinger.
Their trainers were kept busy for a few
minutes collecting the money. In order
to' obtain a share of the gate money a
rider was required to make 1,3)0 miles,
and all ot them did tbe work. The six
days' record heretofore has been that ot
Schock, 1,405 mile Martin slept 15
hours during tbe week; Ashinger, 32 hours
25 minutes; Schock, 22 hours 10 minutes,
and Lamb, 81 hours 25 minutes. It is es

New Yobk, Oct 25. When the curtain
went up at the Standard theatre last
night it disclosed a small upright piano, a
table on whioh were a pitcher and glass,
and a set scene that purported to repre
sent a graveyard at midnight There
were half a dosen solemn looking trees in
the background, and in the center of the
stage were two green mounds. About 150
people watched the curtain go up and
wondered what was going to happen.
There were a number of women present,
and not a few physicians and druggists.
Each one In the audience had received by
postal card an invitation and the pro
gramme, the whole business being con
ducted by Professor Charles W. Bel den,
A. M., M. D.
Began with aa Old Song. .
Professor Charles W. Selden, A M., M
D., is not known to fame under that
name. He is a tall, athletic looking man
with a red face and mustache and hair
that are quite gray. An elderly man in
evening dress glided out from tbe wings
and seated himself at tbe piano. He
played a few bars and then broke loose in
a song called "The Old Sexton," in a voice
so well developed that the leaves on the
trees in the background rustled. Then
"an eminent clergyman," who was down
on the programme for a lecture on modes
of burial, appeared, and after pouring out
a little water from the pitcher and clear
ing his throat began his lecture. The
clergyman was a round-faced, earnest
looking young man.
Approved of Body Snatching.
He recited a piece about death and dif
ferent modes of burial, and whenever he
forgot his lines he deliberately took a
drink of water and a man in the wings
prompted him. The supply of water was
exhausted before he wound up his speech.
The eminent clergyman approved of body
snatching because it was necessary for the
advancement of science. He advised his
listeners to leave their bodies to the dis
secting room when-they died.
Talked of Carving People.
The grsy-haired man in evening dress
then came out and sang "I Would Not
Live Alway." By this time the audience
was wandering what it' was all about
Then "a distinguised professor of surgery"
appeared. He was to talk on surgery and
dissection, so the programme said. His
baggy black trousers and white stockings
that showed above low shoes strongly re
Be milled those of the "eminent clergy
man." The audience knew that it wasn't
the clergyman, however, for he wore a
stiff, white waistcoat and his hair was
long and gray. Tbe audience also knew
that he was a Frenchman, for he said "re"
instead ot "the" and his gestures were dif
ferent He gave a history of surgery with
tbe aid of the water pitcher and the man
in the wings. Tbe French scientist also
approved ot body snatching.
ENTER THE STAR PERFORMER.
He 'Defends the Business of "Returree

Then came the elderly man in evening
dress with the "Song of the Cremationist"
The use of tbe cemetery scene was appar
ent in that Dart of the exarclaea. Tha
"champion resurrectionist of the world"
walked out upon the stage in a Little
Lord Fauntleroy costume with polished '
leather leggings. He twirled a little
English fore-and-aft cap in his hand. He
told the audience that night doctors,
cadaver catchers, body snatchers, stiff
raisers, vampires and overtaken were
' Bimply pet names for grave robbers.
I An Illustration from Life,
I After the professional resurrectionist
I' had defended his business as the sale
guard of science and complained bitterly
.of tbe low pi ices that the Georgetown
Medical college paid for assistance in his
! line, he demonstrated the way in which a
body is stolen from a grave. A tall man
walked out from the wings aud concealed
himself behind one of the mounds that
represented a srave. He was tbe corpse.
Then Professor Selden in his shirt sleeves
came on with a long rope to which was
attached an iron hook.
Delighted tha Audience. .
He explained its use to the resurrection
ist and tbe resurrectionist told the audi
ence all about it. Professor Selden and tbe
