the trouble was caused by the large num-1
ber of people out of work. The trouble
at Dantzic began by a mass-meeting of
the unemployed, by fiery addresses made
by agitators and by heated suggestions on
the part of socialistic orators. A delega
tion was then appointed to call upon the
chief local magistrate, who had been
warned that the trouble was brewing. The

der is either insane or giving a clever imi
tation of insanity. The attendants at the
Detention hospital take the latter view of
it. When a reporter stood at the door of
Dr. Scudder's cell yesterday the man
raved and talked of people who were pur
suing him, and sprang at the bars like a
wild man. Iu calmer moments he de
clared that he had committed no murder.
"Murder!' he screamed, "It's a damnable
lie. I know nothing about it. Oh, yes, I
believe they did say something about it,
but I was too sick to pay any attention to
Say. the Charpe . Prepo.terou.
Then he became more rational. "It is
preposterous,'' .e paid. "Do you think I
would kill an old woman who had only a
few months to live at best? Rot and non
sense." Then the doctor grew wild. Mak
ing a spring at the grated door he yelled:
"You look like the man that came sneak
ing around and peered through the win
dow at me the other night. He was a
fiend. All night long he peered and
smirked at me. You are he, and you have
come to torment me. Go away." All
further efforts at conversation were fruit
less. Declined to See His Wife.
Desk Sergeant .Wheelock said: "II is
wife sent word to hint today that she
wanted, to see him. He declined to receive
her. 'Tell her I don't know her; w ho is
she' he said. But she went into his cell
later and the doctor refused to talk to her.
She could not draw him into conversation,
and left after a short time. That does not
look much like acting. I told him I had
denied entrance to every body and be said
that was right. I had no orders from my
superiors, nor from the friends of Dr.
Scudder, but I believe that when a man is
confined for his alleged insanity and his
association with a crime he should be
protected from the intrusion of the curi

to go home, promising that they would be

Walked Over tbe Rome.
Gen Gildnriu tits rompleted his ex
plorations of the Hennepin canal route
made in search of s line on which be
thinks could be located a canal built en
tirely without lacks. Tes'.erday he ad
dressed the Davenport Basin si Men's
aaociation on his proposed scheme. Gen.
Gilchrist has entertained the idea that a
route for the canal might be found that
would be free from locks, and it is on
this lino that he has been working. Sev
eral weeks ago he covered the entire dis
tance fr m the mouth of Reck river to
Ctiiengo, travel sing some of it two or
three times, and walking in all not less
than 500 miks. He completed the trip
Tuesday, aad Thursday he returned to
Rock Inland, which has been the base of
l is operations.
The general said t hit bis expedition,
which was somewhat in the nature of a
rcconnoiesanct, had fully satisfied him of
the correctness of his proposition, and
that a cnnal across the stile of Illinois
with no other locks than those at the ters
minal point is entirely feasible and of
vas'ly greater value to commerce when
completed, tbun one with the 50 odd
locks provided in the engineering plans
of the LTecnepin.
The geceral's plan would render un-
necis ary the 53 locks on the canal as at
present beirg constrtc'-ed, but would a's j
obviate the necessity of bui'dlng the
Dixon feeder, which is to be 38 miles
long, the feed water being obtained from
Lake Michigan through Lake Calumet acd
pissirg along the entire distance to Rock
river on a fall of an inch a.d a btlf to the
mile. Gen. Gilchrist's route clear across
the state is 190 miles, while the Hennepin
and its inadtquate connection tocetht r
192 miles in length. Aside from the un
impeded navigation secured there would
be a great saving in operation of locks.
while the greater cost of earth displace
ment would be a great saving in the
operation of locks, while the greater cost
cf earth dif placement would certainly be
balanced by the saving in the construc
tion of locks ard feeder. As a tow of
birges too big to pass through the locks
a'l at once would occupy 6 hours in the
p isage, the saving of time may be im
asiced when it is stated that the journey
from one ecd of the canal to the other
may ret d.ly be made in that time.
Gen. Gilchrist started on his expedi
tion the latter part of January, walking
the entire f,dUtacce to Chicago. As he
went ever portions of the route several
t'mes he walked fully 500 miles in mak
ing the trip. Ec simply compared the
e'eyatiens of the route he followed with
the known elevations of the located or

the result has firmly convinced him that

Terrible Grief of the Accused Man. Rela

the first called. In the ante-room
were seated bis father, Rev. Dr. H.
M. Scudder; his brother, Rev. Dore-
nius Scudder; and his wife, Mrs. Dora
Dunton-Scadder. Dr. I.yman, the family

All the members of the Scudder family

Dr. Scudder, Sr., and Mrs. Dora Dun-

a small sum of money one of
them entered his room, awak

glar, who fired two shots at him without
effect. The priest grappled with him and
threw the thief downstairs and ran both
of the men out of the house. There is no
