'TIS HELD DOUBLY LIABLE COMMON CLAIMANTS WILL BE PAID Fidelity Loan and Trust Company Decision a Blow for Stock holders. Special to The Journal. Sioux City, lowa, April 12.—The decision handed down yesterday by the lowa su preme court in the case of the state vs. the Fidelity Loan and Trust company ap pellant, will probably result in an assess ment of the stock of the Fidelity com pany for its full amount, which will en tail a loss to the stockholders of $500,000. Most of the stock is held in New England. The assessment will be made by Receiver U. G. Whitney of this city under the double liability law of lowa regarding bank stocks. The company in question is held to be a banking company, as in its charter is a provision empowering it to do business as a bank, and it has been proved that the company did do a banking business here. When the Fidelity Loan and Trust com pany went into a receiver's hands several years ago the assets were all consumed in paying the preferred claimE. The com mon claimants, with $400,000 to $500,000 at stake, were not at first granted any thing. The decision of the supreme court will enable the receiver now to demand of the stockholders the double payment of stock and it is believed that the com mon claims will be al paid in this manner. No case was ever harder fought in the lowa courts than has this been. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.

TOTAL CLOSE TO $45,000,000 From the Nome District Alone It la Expected f 10,000,000 Will Be Produced. Special to The Journal. Tacoma, Wash., April 12.—Dr. Caleb Whitehead, assayer of the mint bureau, who is about to start for his annual trip to the Alaskan gold fields says: "I wish to make a prediction and have it recorded for future reference. In ten years Alaska will be producing one-half the world's supply of copper, and Taconia and Seattle will be the cities through which the rest of the United States will transact all its business with that great mining region." No one east of the Rocky Mountains has as yet given much thought to Alaska as a copper producer, but Assayer White head's predictions are likely to prove true even more quickly than is suggested. Just now the thoughts are all for Alaska gold. The present season is already far enough advanced to enable a fair esti mate to be made of the probable output for 1901, and although many reports are coming out of Alaska and the Klondike which place the increase at fully 50 per cent more than last year, among the more conservative mine operators of the vari ous districts the belief is gaining ground that the increase over last year's output, from all sources, will be about one-third; that is to say, where the 1900 output foot ed up to a total of $33,590,000, this year it is expected to reach a total of $44,700,000. The Nome district alone is expected to double its last year's production and give a total of $10,000,000. The Klondike dist rict is estimated to give about $5,000,000 more than it did last year, the total esti mate being $27,000,000, against $22,700 - 000 last year. F. A. Wing, United States assayer in charge of the assay office, is already at work preparing to meet the increased de mands that will be made on that estab lishment the coming summer, and is both enlarging the plant and increasing his working force from the eligible list of applicants who have passed the required civil service examinations. Speaking of the coming summer's work, Mr. Wing said: From all the data that I have so far re ceived, gathered from persons returning from the north and cognizant of the development work being done in the different districts, I feel that I am justified in estimating the re ceipts of the office for the coming season at much larger figures than they were last year, and I shall be disappointed if they do not come pretty near reaching the $30,000,000 mark. Everybody seems to expect that the Nome district will double its output of last year which was $5,100,000, and of which this office handled $3,723,272.1-]. We also look for in creased outputs from the mining camps in Alaska other than Nome, which include all the camps on the American side of the Yukon Forty-Mile, Circle City, Port Yukon, Ram part, Tanana and others, as well as the Cop per river, Cook's inlet and other coast points. These various camps last year gave a total output of $2,800,000. Conservative estimates covering the coming output from these places give a total of about $4,000,000. British Columbia, wl-Jch includes Atlln gave this office $667,246.13, and a material in crease is also looked for from that district THE FINISHING TOUCHES James J.

Hill of the Great Northern railroad has postponed his departure to St. Paul to complete the details of theChicago,Bur lington & Quincy deal. It was ascertained to-day that the Boston stockholders of Burlington, who for a while insisted on the payment of cash for their shares, have waived that demand in view of an offer of better terms in bonds.

A Princely Drink JUDGE EWING SPEAKS ON CHRISTIAN SCIENCE Eloquent Chicago Lawyer Expounds His Belief Before a Large Audience at the Lyceum Theater. A large audience gathered at the Ly ceum theater last night to hear Judge William G. Ewing of Chicago deliver his lecture on Christian Science under the auspices of the Second Church of Christ, Scientist. Judge Ewing was introduced by Abbot Edes Smith, who said: In the , eighth century before the Chris tian era, the greatest of the Hebrew prophets proclaimed: "He will destroy in this moun tain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations." In fulfillment of this prophecy, Jesus came to tear down the veil which had long darkened the spirttunl preception of mankind, to pour the ligtyt of truth upon God's word revealed in the old testament, and to show the way to that understanding of God's law—the supremacy of good and the powerlessness of evil—which, as our Saviour expressly taught, always enables anyone who understands this law and who lives a life of purity and self-sacrifice, to destroy evil, whether It be mental, moral, or physical—to heal the sick and to reform the sinner. Jesus' command 'Preach the gospel," was al ways accompanied by his other command, "Heal the sick." During the persecution of the early Chris tians which continued for many generations after the crucifixion of Jesus, his followers of necessity forgot self entirely, and joyfully sacrificed even life on the altar of truth. They followed closely both the letter and the spirit of Christ's teachings, and tbeir preaching and thtir healing went hand in hand. Their only test of fellowship was Jesus' test: "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." When Christianity became the established religion, this simple and practical test of the in spired word was found too severe, and in its place was substituted the intellectual accept ance of a man-made creed. The same veil as of old had again come between God's word and the people. After centuries of spiritual darkness, arising from a merely partial acceptance of Christ's gospel, the prophecy of Isaiah has been ful filled a second time by the discoverer and founded of Christian science. The mission of this new messenger from God has been to lead men back to the primitive Christianity of Jesus in all its simplicity and in all its complete and practical entireness. To-day Christian Science repeats and emphasizes Christ's double command "Preach the gospel. Heal the sick." During Jesus' life, the scribes and phari sees, the physicians and the theologians, re jected his meatege. Having eyes, they saw not; having ears, they heard not; and their minds were darkened that they would not understand. In order that the doctors and the clergy men of to-day may not make a similar mis take, and in order that the general public may not be misled by the misrepresentations of those who have written and spoken hastily and unwisely, without a proper comprehen sion of this new-old religion of Christ, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., maintains an organized Christian sci ence board of lectureship, whose members are authorized, under the auspices of the various local churches of our denomination, so far as can be done under the necessary limitations of a popular lecture, to correct some of the erroneous statements about Christian Science made by those who have unintentionally perpetrated an Injustice by multiplying words without an understanding of their subject. The lecturer of the evening is a member of this board of lectureship and speaks under the auspices of Second Church of Christ, Scient ist, of this city. Although an introduction is not necessary for one who has once before, under similar circumstances, ably addressed a Minneapolis audience from this platform, and who is well and favorably known as formerly United States district attorney for Illinois and as judge of the superior court of Cook county in that state, I take great pleas ure in presenting to you William G. Ewing of Chicago. Judge Ewing said in substance: Judge Kwing'» Addresa. ' "We live. in a practical age and are satisfied only with facts. The world is weary of theories, it longs for facts; it is surfeited with arguments, dogmas and platitudes and cries out for facts. Christian Science is the religion of Jesus Christ; the religion that he preached, taught and practiced; or it is not anything worthy of your thought or mine. If Christian Science is not this, wo want to know it at the eariest possible mo ment; and if it. is this, the good people of the old churches want to know it, I am sure, to-night, if it may be. The greatest diffi culty that confronts me in presenting to you any new phase of religion, or new thought of God, is our inherited religious beliefs, our fathers' thought of God. In our pride of ancestry we have accepted, without inves tigation, our fathers' belief as our own. It is a humiliating confession, and yet it is doubtless true, that less that 5 per cent of the millions of professed believers In the Christian religion are what they are, not by reason of any conviction resulting from per sonal Investigation-. of their relationship to God; they are - Presbyterians. Congregation alists, Methodists, Baptists,, Episcopalians or Catholics because . their fathers were. No one thinks it strange that we > should dis card "our fathers' ■ thought -' respecting dres3, habitation, civil or religious government, or the inherent rights of men, and yet the thought see,ms to be almost universal that the child shall think of religion, think of God, as its fathers thought, or not think at all. And yet we know, indeed, that our fathers questioned the religious beliefs of their fathers, and made us happier by it; that their fathers questions the religious beliefs of their, own fathers and made the world brighter by it. John Calvin questioned the religious beliefs of his fathers, and out of the controversy sprang the Presbyterian church and all of its multiplied offshoots that have made the world better: Martin Luther raised his mighty voice against the religious beliefs and religious practices of his fathers, and the Reformation gladdened the world; the great Wesleys controverted the religious tenets of ,', their ' fathers, and the heroic Methodist circuit-rider began his task of making sweeter and happier and, holier the humble homes of England . and America. Why should we not have the inde pendence, the intellectual integrity, to think of God in the splendid light of to-day rather than in the bonds of ancestral thought? As one means of clearing your minds of the prevailing prejudices of the old churches against Christian Science, let me remind ', you that there are many religious beliefs and re ligious practices, respecting . which you. of the old churches and, Christian Scientists are in perfect accord. For instance, you and they are in favor of whatever makes men and women better, happier, more loving and lovable: you and they will aid to the Ut most whatever will lessen the burdens and sorrows of men, banish superstition, min imize fear, and add sweetness and holiness to the home and home relations; you and they believe in the one ever-lived God and Father, of all, infinite in • power, wisdom, truth and'love, a divine, • Incorporeal, spir itual intelligence; you and Christian Scien tists alike ' believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the virgin mother, who taught in the, temple, preached the gospel, healed . the sick, I made the lame walk, gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf and purity to the sinful; and with equal fervor we worship and glorify V this dear, compassionate, healing Christ, as Lord, Savior and ; Exemplar. You alsoi believe, as we do, that the Bible is the divinely inspired revelation of God to man; .that the Ten Commandments. are God's laws of, require ment and restriction, to be resolutely and absolutely , obeyed, one . not less than the other; that prayer is both a privilege ■ and i a duty; and "with • equal loyalty' you and Chris tian Scientists accept \ the ¥ great ■ command ment, ' "Thou I shalt love . the Lord ; thy •■ God ■ with \ all [! thy I heart, with ; all'; thy j mind * and with all • thy strength, and thou thalt love thy neighbor as thyself." So; it " appears - that whatever you may have thought before, you know now that you and Christian Scientists are in absolute accord respecting the essen tial requirements of the Christian, religion, as you understand that religion. Mrs. Eddy's Book. Now let me tell you something of what Christian Science is, In the hope that upon conscientious investigation we may also agree upon the essentials of Christ's religion, as Christian Scientists understand, believe and practice it. Christian Science was discovered and re vealed to the world some thirty odd years ago, by the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy, a native of New Hampshire and still a resident of that state. The whole philosophy and practice of Christian Science is published to the world in Mrs. Eddy's book, entitled "Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures." The latter part of the title of this marvelous book, "With Key to the Scriptures," is very significant; for a chief value of Mrs. Eddy's gift to the world is the light she has thrown on the real, demonstrable meaning of the Holy Scriptures. In the great effort of her devoted and beautiful life, as she declares herself, she took the Bible as her only guide, and God as her only counsel, and she does not announce any principle, doctrine or prac tice of Christian Science that she did not find, and that each one of you, whether you grace a pulpit or adorn a pew, may not find in the Bible. Wherefore, I announce to you so dis tinctly that there will be no room for misun derstanding, that Christian Science offers to the world no new Bible, or any mythical con struction of the old one; it enthrones no new divinity, proclaims no new God; but rather re-enthrones and declares unto you the one ever-living God, whom all our fathers wor shiped. Indeed the substratum of Christian Science, its initial principle, the premise of all its reasoning, is the persistent declaration of and insistence upon the patent fact of God's infir.iiy, his allness. If, therefore, you would destroy Christian Science, you must first destroy the omniscience nad omnipres ence of God, for, with these remaining, all *he logic in the world cannot imperil for an instant Mrs. Eddy's deduction from the Bible Christian Science.' God's Healing Power. Tha most potent objection urged by the old er churches against their own concept of Christian Science is that it is sheer impiety for any man or woman to assert that he or site is clothed with the power of God to heal the sick. The striking weakness of this ob jection is that Christian Scientists do not pro fess, In any degree, any such power. Chris tian Scientists simply assert, as it was de clared in the time of Jes-us. that the power that heals the sick is the power of God. Now if at is true that the health-giving power is of God, and it is also true that God's power and love are as great now as they were in the morning of the Christian era, then, tell me, is there anything strange in the fact that the lame do walk and the blind do see, to-day as they did walk and see 1,900 years ago? On the contrary, would it not strike your human sense of justice as passing strange, with God's power and love for men unchanged that he should not manifest that power and love to his children as he did in the time of Jesus? But, really, about the only difference between our thought respecting the power and will ingness of God to heal the sick, so far as I can discern it, is about this: You say you be lieve it. and we believe it; you say you be lieve it, and do not trust it; we believe it and do trust it; you say you believe with Paul that in God you live and move and have your being—and go to the doctor or the drug store for your life and health; we believe with Paul that in God we have life, health and immortality, and go to God, and God only, for life and health. I assert that there is not a Christian, reli gious organization" in the world to-day, and never has been one, whether Protestant, Cath olic or Jewish, that does not hold and teach the doctrine of God's power and willingness to heal the sick. You must believe, as a mere matter of might, that God has the power to heal the sick; for you say that by the word of his power he created all the worlds and all that is in them; you say that he fashioned the eye, and the ear, and if this Is true, then you must believe that God can remove a little film from the eye he created; that the power that fashioned the ear can remove a little thick ness from its drum. It is very apparent that you believe that God has the physical and mental welfare of his children in his keeping and 1s willing to make them well, because, every Sabbath in your churches, you openly, and sometimes elaborately, pray to God "for the sick and the afflicted," "the poor and the distressed," "the widow and the orphan"; and you would not, I am sure, go to God with a petition for relief, where you doubted either his power or willingness to grant your petition. Really, do yon not think that your professed belief and your practice should keep company with each other? And may you not wisely learn to-night, if you have never realized It before, that a declared moral be lief that is not supplemented by what you do is simply an assault upon your intellectual integrity? I submit to you this simple prop osition: If you really believe that you "live and move in God," then should you not, as a mere act of keeping faith with yourselves trust your life and your health to their Infi nite Keeper? Ancestral Opinion. To my mind your lack of trust in God's healing power, and love is. not very strange It is the natural result of ancestral opinion' Your fathers believed, and therefore taught you to believe, that God makes you sick- that God makes you blind, and deaf and lame- and so it is not hard to understand that one who regards God as the fruitful source of every sorrow, heartache and heartbreak, would re luctantly go to Him with a petition for relief from the very woes His own hand • had wrought. And right here is the marked dis tinction between the. old churches' thought of God, and our thought of Him. Christian Scientists utterly repudiate the idea that God is the author of disease and disaster- they hail Him rather as the open fountain of peace and health, of song and gladness You remember, that Jesus went into the synagogue on one occasion - and read from the prophecy of Esaias. respecting the office of Christ where it is written: '"The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the broken hearted; to preach deliverance to the cap tives ..and recovering of sight to the blind to set at liberty them that are bruised"' and. closing the book. Jesus said to the con gregation that His presence on earth was a fulfillment of that prophecy. Christian Sci entists assert that these words of Jesus are His proclamation to. all the . world, of His God-sealed ambassadorship not only to preach the gospel, but to heal the sick- and *He demonstrated by constant ministrations to weary, suffering men his fidelity to His high commission. What did Jesus mean when near the close of His ministry, He told His disciples that the works which He did they should do also? His healing was without the aid of any drug, manipulation, diet, change of climate, mechanical. contrivance, mesmerism or hypnotism; and in the same • way, • Jesus' way of healing, the disciples were'clearly told they should do similar works. Certainly no one in ; the old '. churches will assert " that Jesus -did not make the declaration to His disciples that they should do the works He did, and no one, I am sure, in : the old churches, 5 will say that Jesus • did not mean the words He spoke. , Now, , these words of Jesus were spoken to you and to me as cer tainly, as they were to His disciples of olden time.' It was to you and to me as truly as to the eleven that Jesus. said: "If you believe in my name you shall ; cast. out devils*; in *my name you shall lay hands on the sick,- and they shall recover." - Christian; Scientists ac cept this call' to '• duty as : addressed 'to them, and sby the most'crucial tests;" by .. thousands upon A thousands }of » absolute - cures, covering the whole;. range"; of ? mortal ' afflictions * they hay© d«iaonstrat*d the •JBoacy at meta- Goodfellow's Furs stored here are under the care of an ex pert furrier, and insured against loss from moths, thieves, fire, etc., on the conditions that if the articles are destroyed by moth or fire or stolen we agree to replace them or pay the amount for which they are insured.

I will not offend your sense of fair play, of warfare "in the open," by entering upon a seriatum defense cf the various assaults made upon Christian Science and upon the benefi cent woman who, in hope and prayer and love, has given immunity to the world from the dominion of fear, superstition and disease. As one of the tens of thousands of beneficiar ies of metaphysical healing, I joyfully pay my tribute of love to this lofty woman. Her life of devotion to God and humanity, her sacrifice of self for others, her ministrations to weary, suffering, dying men, her long years of fearless and faultless association with perfect good, are her invincible panoply against every shaft of envy, ingratitude and malice. Of Christian Science, it is enough for me to say, and for you to know, that if it is true, all the powers of earth and hell cannot prevail against it; no detraction can mar it; and no eulogy can compass the sum of its infinite greatness. At last the world has learned that its great need is not a more intimate acquaintance with microbes and germs; not a science that wiil more accurate ly measure the sun and weigh the stars; not a loftier walk with the muse, or a more ex quisite touch of brush or chisel; but rather a knowledge of the true God, to be wor shiped, loved and adored, but not feared. Christian Science is indeed a"key" to God's revelation of Himself to men; a comprehen sion of its truth enlarges the moral status of man; quickens the kindlier sentiments of bis nature; makes the buehand and father more devoted and affectionate; the wife and mother more tender and loving; works the H tgk *^^sY^L-^?Hss^sS3^Ps"!O^B^s^s^s^s^BrJß^m'^«^w^O£^k_.

By far the most ./^y^QnsbvV^^v^^v greatest number of its victims among the children jK^/^^^^^^^^^s,. and grand-children of those whose blood was tainted with this dreadful malady. You may carry this poison in the blood for years, but as the vital powers begin to wane a slight brmse or cut, wart or nok, sore or pimple may develop into Cancer. Prom middle life to old age is flae time when, the slumbering poison is most apt to break out, a sore or ulcer often degenerating: into Cancer, and Tumors become more progressive and ulcerate through the skin, the sharp, shooting pains causing the most intense suffering. The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the -usual remedies fail, and the sore shows no sign of heating. The impurities that have been accumulating in the system, perhaps for generations, cannot be eliminated war the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plastess. The jaoper treatment is to purify and build up the blood, remove the cause, when the or-aker honlr Mr. J. B. Arnold, of Greenwood, S.

SKOOG'S OTHER SELF In Williamttbnrsr the Counterfeiter Was a Respected Resident. New York, April 12.—John Albert Skoog. the counterfeiter, who now hovers between life and death in the prison ward at Bellevue hospital, the result of self-in flicted wounds, led a double life, says the Journal, and he did it so cleverly that hardly a person in Williamsburg will be lieve that the would-be % suicide and Al bert A. Brown, the photographer of Grand street, Williamsburg, are the same per son. Brown was a favorite In the homes of his neighbors. In the Republican club of the district he was one of the leadrs, and he was regarded as a power at the polls. In the Swedish church, at Leonard and Griggs avenue, the same Brown wa« one of the most devout worshippers. To the poor he was a veritable Robin Hood. His neighbors-said he gave away more than he could afford. They did not know that night after night his printing press on the top floor was turning out fifty and one hundred kroner notes. Uncle Sam's currency and bills of the Bank of. Scotland. Special to The Journal. Skoog is suffering from paralysis of the right side. The hospital physicians do not think be will recover.
