Evidence All Submitted in the Tap
per Case at Chaska.
Memory Failed Him Just Before He
I* Alleged to Have Struck
the Blown.
Special to The Journal.
Chaska, Minn., Oct. 22.—The fate of
Andrew Tapper, alleged murderer of
Rosa Mlxa, will bo in the hands of the
jury some time .to-day. The state rested
its case early this morning, and at 11
a. m. the defense was through and court
look a recess.
The state proved the killing of Mis»
Mlxa by Tapper at Carver on July 3, by
Mr. and Mrs. Leonard, proprietors of the
Statler hotel, where the girl was em
ployed; by Sheriff Johnston, Coroner Hal
gren and other witnesses.
The facts brought out from their tes
timony were that the girl was murdered
at 6 o'clock a. m., her throat being cut.
Several wounds were also found on her
limbs and erms, showing that a terrible
struggle had ensued before Tapper suc
ceeded in overpowering her. Chris Bris
tol, a celery farmer, testified to hearing
screams issue from the kitchen of the
hotel while passing the house on his way
to his farm, which is on the outskirts of
the village. He immediately went to the
rescue, but was too late. The deed had
already been committed.
John Leonard testified he heard the
ecreams of Rosa and hurried to the kitch
en and tried to enter the room, but the
door would not open, as the body of the
murdered girl lay across it. He placed
his shoulder to the door, and as he
pressed it open was confronted by Tapper,
who made a lunge at him a»d .tried to
■tab him with the bloody knife he held.
Leonard ran for help and upon his return
Tapper had made his escape to the Min
nesota river, where he tried to commit
Sheriff Johnston said that he examined
Tapper and found a knife in his pocket.
The clothes which Taper wore when he
did the murder were produced in court
and examined. Another witness for the
state was Noah Hammerlund, who entered
the saloon connected with the hotel short
ly after the murder and found Tapper and
Leonard there. Tapper said, "It is no
use." His clothes were soaked with water,
and the wltnes learned afterward he had
Just come from the river.
Tapper told of his movements prior to
tho murder, and said his recollection was
good up to the time that he went to the
bar and took several drinks. eH had no
remembrance whatever of killing Miss
Mixa and denied he had had trouble with
her. After drinking several glasses of
whisky he swore he remembered no more
until he was returning from the river and
suddenly noticed that his clothes were
wet. Ho then went back to the hotel and
■aw Rosa lying on the floor bleeding and
The witness swore he was 35 years of
age and was born and reared in Dahlgren,
Carver county. His father and mother
were dead. He had worked on a farm up
to the time of hia employment by Leonard
as barkeeper.
Attorney Odell for the defendant and
County Attorney Morrison are making
their arguments this afternoon and the
case may reach the Jury at 5 or 6 o'clock.
A verdict of guilty of murder In the sec
ond degree would not cause much sur
prise here. The courtroom has been
crowded during the two days that wit
nesses have been examined.

■■■■■ ■ ple who think it is as
useless to hope tor health as to cry for the

and many doctors, but all in vain.
A great many hopeless men and women
have been cured by the use of Dr. Pierces
Golden Medical Discovery; people with
obstinate coughs, bleeding: lungs, night
sweats and other symptoms of disease
which if neglected or unskillfully treated
find a fatal termination in consumption.
Golden Medical Discovery " has a won
derful healing power. It increases the
nutrition of the body, and so gives strength
to throw off disease. It cleanses the blood
from poisonous impurities and enriches it
with the red corpuscles of health. It is
not a stimulant, but a strength giving medi
cine. It contains no alcohol, neither opium,
cocaine, nor any other narcotic.
Sometimes the extra profit paid by
inferior medicines tempts the dealer to
offer a substitute as "just as good" as "Dis
covery." If you are convinced that "Dis
, covery * will cure you accept nothing else.
"I was in poor health when I commenced
taking Dr. Pierces medicine," writes Mr, Elmer
Lawler, of Volga, Jefferson Co,, Indiana. - "I
had stomach, kidney, heart, and lung trouble.
Was not able to do any work. I had a severe
cough and hemorrhage of the lungs, but after

Can you give us that conversation?
After we had reached the quarterdeck from
the gangway he stopped, and Commodore
Schley said to him: "Have we got them,
Sigsbee?" Captain Sigsbee said: "No, they
are not here. 1 have been here for a week
and they are not here."
Is that the whole of the conversation as
you recollect?
No, sir. We went aft further back on the
quarterdeck and he continued the conversa
tion. Commodore Schley said: "Are you sure
thej- are not In there?" Sigsbee said. "1
have been very close to the harbor entrance
two or three times. Captain Cotton has been
lii and cut a cable, and they are not there."
You heard Sigsbee say that?
Yes, sir. I took some part in the conver
Did you record that conversation and did
Captain Sigsbee know you recorded it?
Captain Sigsbee knew I was a newspaper
man and was there looking for information,
and later he took a dispatch written by me
and vised by Commodore Schley. He took it
aboard his ship and was to deliver It to one
of the small boats or else take it over himself.
And Captain Sigsbee took that dispatch?
Yes, sir. It was open. I detailed the fact
that the fleet was not there.
Do you remember the reconnoisance of
May 31?
Yes, sir. I was aboard the Massachusetts.
Were you present at any conversation be
tween Commodore Schley and Captain Higgin
son on the pilot house of the Massachusetts?
Schley's Advice.
On the Brooklyn I had heard that they were
going in to bombard and that the flag should
be transferred to the Massachusetts. I asked
permission to go aboard the Massachusetts
with the commodore. He had just given
permission to Mr. McCulley to go, and turn
ing to me, said: "I do not think you had
better go. You can see it better from the
Brooklyn." She was then coaling. He fur
ther said they did not intend to do anything
except find out what the batteries consisted
of. I kept urging him to let me go and he
finally consented.
Now tell me regarding the conversation
between Commodore Schley and Captain Hig
There was some discussion about what the
Spanish fleet had brought with them. A re
port was current that they had brought arms
and ammuLltion for the defense of Havana
and there was also a discussion as to whether
they had had time to mount them or whether
from any ships in the harbor
prior to the arrival of the fleet
they had taken any large guns
and mounted them. Commodore Schl*y said
his idea was to go in within 7,000 or 7,500
yards and flre, simply to draw their fire. So
far as X remember Captain Hlgginson ac
quiesced in that Later Mr. Potts came in.
Were you in the presence of Commodore
Schley during the whole of this reconnais
sance of the Massachusetts?
Only part of the time. At times I was
behind the conning tower and he was on the
other side of It
Did you see Lieutenant Potts on board the
He came into the pilothouse during the
conversation and took some part in it
Mr. Rayner—Were you present at any con
versation between Commodore Schley and
Lieutenant Potts or were you present at any
time when Commodore Schley made any re
marks when Potts was present?
Witness—No, sir. I followed them right out
of the pilothouse and down to the conning
tower. I did not hear any conversation of
that kind.
"Let's Go Out of It."
Mr. Rayner—Then you don't know anything
about the conversation about which Potts
has testified that the commodore said: "Gen
tlemen, we are very conspicuous objects here.
Let's go out of it?"
Witness—l never heard such conversation.
I stood on top of th« forward thirte«n-inch
turret. The commodore called to me: "Boy,
that's a bad place for you. Step in here." I
afterward asked why, and he said that the
concussion would hurt me. I had no serious
intention of remaining there.
The witness said he was with the com
modore during the whole of the reconnais
sance and did not hear either of the con
versations. Mr. Graham also said that
he bad not heard Commodore Schley say
anything about "potting the Colon" when
the commodore went aboard the Massa
chusetts, May 81, and that he was with
the commodore at the time.
Describing the battle of July 8, Mr. Gra
ham said that Commodore Schley had
gotten to a position in front of the con
ning tower as soon as the nose of the flfst
of the Spanish, ships appeared. The
Brooklyn was at that time pointing al
most north. Lieut. Simpson had fired the
first gun from the 8-inch turrets and call-
Ing to Commodore Schley, said:
"Keep at It."
"How is that?" To this the commodore
replied: "didn't see It, Simpson, but keep
at it."
By the time th& (Brooklyn had completed
her turn (and he thought the turn had
been continuously to the right) the three
leading Spanish ships had emerged from
the harbor. The witness thought they had
come out in fan shape order. He said:
The commodore stood all the time on the
side of the turret, so that h« could see what
was doing. He was absolutely cool and sent
continuous messages to the men to cheer
them up. When EHHs' head was »hot off h*
wiped some of the blood from his own per
son, and as the men picked the body up to
throw It overboard, while the rest of us
stood horrified, he calmly said: "Don't throw
that body over. Take It below and we'll
give it Christian burial."
When the Vizcaya went ashore the commo
dore went into the conning tower and himself
called down the tube to the men below:
"They are all gone but one; it all depends on
you, boys."
Mr. Rayner—Did you ever see Commodore
Schley when he appeared to be laboring under
any mental excitement.
Witness—Oh, no. He was Jovial and good
natured at all times, and I did not observe
the least trace of excitement or anxiety ex
cept at one time. That was when it looked
as If the Colon might get away. He ex
pressed fear that that might occur, and
seemed much concerned. I remember that he
discussed with Captain Cook the advisability
of Mopping to couple his engines before dark,
fearing that if postponed until later the, Span
iard might get away.
Object and Fight Over It.
Mr. Rayner asked the witness concern
ing a conversation between Commodore
Schley and Captain Evans of the lowa,
after the battle. Before the examination
had gone far it was objected to by Captain
"Were you," asked Mr. Rayner, "pres
ent at any conversation between Captain
Evans and Commodore Schley?"
Witness—Yes, sir, in the commodore's cabin
in the Brooklyn on July 6. When Evans
came in the first thing he said was: "Schley,
did you see Jack Philip run away with the
Texas?" and Commodore Schley said, "No,
neither did you.' '
Admiral Dewey (addressing counsel)— One
moment Poor Philip is not present, you
Mr. Rayner—That has gone in Captain
Evans' testimony.
Captain Lemly—ln cross-examination some
thing in regard to it has gone in. I cannot
see what bearing It has.
Mr. Rayner—We do not want to prove any
thing about what Captain Philip said. This
is a conversation in which Commodore Schley
was present.
Captain Lemly—You proposfe to contradict
what you drew out in cross-examination?
Mr. Rayner—Why, of course.
Captain Lemly—l object, if the court pleas*.
This has nothing whatever to do with th 6
case. Captain Philip is dead and Admiral
Evans is out of the country. I object on
that ground, which I think is quite sufficient.
To further discuss the matter, even on my
part, would be to do the same harm to the
dead and to the absent man.
When Schley Has a Chance.
Mr. Rayner—l am glad my brother puts
it on the second ground and not on the first,
because the slightest reflection will satisfy
him that I have the right to contradict what
his own witness has said on cross-examina
tion. The cross-examination does not make
him my witness. Whan Commodore Schley
gets on the stand he would like to have
the opportunity of stating What that conver
sation was. Captain Evans has stated It. Why
cannot Admiral Schley state it? Why cannot
one who was present state it? It does not re
flect In any degree upon Admiral Evans and
certainly not upon Captain Philip. It would
be unjust, unfair, to permit that statement to
remain in the record without the opportunity
to contradict it by the people who are pres
ent. If Commodore Schley was not pres
ent of course it would not be admissible.
Captain Lemly—How does this affect Com
modore Schley's conduct in battle. I want
to bring It down to the precept.
Mr. Rayner—Are there no other specifica
tions iv the precept except Commodore
Schley's conduct in batlle? Is there no specifi
cation about the turn of the Brooklyn? Does
not this conversation directly relate to that?
That it was the Brooklyn which made the
turn and not the Texas? The point is an Im
portant one to us because it will occur many
times during Admiral Schley's testimony, as
we expect to ask him a hundred times with
reference to what other witnesses have sail
Captain Parker spoke briefly, saying
there could possibly be no reflection upon
Captain Philip by repeating the conver
"We all honor Philip too highly for
that," he said.
Mr. Hanna contended that the question
was not admissible unless intended to im
peach the testimony of Captain Evans.
Incidentally he objected to "the vigorous
and various verbosity of counsel for the
Admiral Dewey then announced that the
court would then retire for the consid
eration of the point raised.
After being out twenty minutes the
members returned and Admiral Dewey
announced their decision In the following
The court decides that the questions in
tended to impugn the credibility of a witness;
Intended to prove any point regarding the
movements of the Brooklyn during the battle
of July 3; intended to prove any statements
made by Commodore Schley or conversation
held with Commodore Schley, which have a
material bearing upon the matters designated
by the precept, are admissible, provided such
conversations or statements occurred in the
presence of and within the hearing of the
What the Conversation Was.
• Mr. Rayner then repeated his question,
asking the witness to repeat .the conver
sation, which Mr. Graham did as follows:
Captain Evans came into the cabin. I sat
at a round table in the center. Commodore
Schley got up and shook hands with Captain
Evaus and the latter said: "Schley, did you
see Philip turn around and run out of the
fight?" The commodore said, "No; neither
did you. He did not run out of the fight."
Captain Evans said: "Oh, yes he did. I
saw him." Captain Evans said he was in
the next ship and saw him. The commodore
said: "It was not the Texas at all. The Texas
was in the fight all the time. The ship you
saw turn around was the Brooklyn."
The court at this point took the usual
recess for luncheon.
Replenishing Their War Supplies
in Europe.
Krager the Only Burgher Leader

Kmw York Sun Bgtmolml S»rv/om
London, Oct. 22. —The morning papers
print reports that the Boers are replen
ishing their war supplies in Europe. The
correspondent of the Standard at Moscow
says the burghers are buying horses from
the peasants of southern Russia at fair
prices. The Express learns the Boers
are bargaining with a French company
for the purchase of field guns. They are
making especial efforts to obtain the
EJfench guns which were displayed at the
military exhibition in London and have
not as yet been removed. They have also
asked a small South American state to
buy guns and rifles in England for the
Boers and an agent is now residing at
Birmingham for that purpose. It is ad
ded that the Boers have also succeeded
already in getting many guns through
Portuguese East Africa. The Brussels
papers print a story that Mr. Kruger has
received £80,000 in English bank notes
for the purchase of arms.
Kroger the Only Burgher Leader
Oppoilng the Idea.
Vienna, Oct. 22.—The Pester Lloyd says
it learns from The Hague that Mr. Kru
ger, Dr. Leyds and Messrs. Weasels, Wol
marans and Fischer have held a council
of war at Villa Oaracasa to consider what
answer is to be made by the Boers to the
executions in South Africa. There is said
to be no doubt among the Boer leaders
that diplomatic protests are inadequate.
All at the meeting except Mr. Kruger
advised immediate reprisals—that for
every Boer prisoner executed a British
officer be shot. Mr. Kruger opposed the
measure, saying that he did not wish to
give the campaign the character of a
war between savages, although it already
had become a war of extermination.

Bicentennial Medal.
The Yale bicentennial medal, which will
be presented to the alumni, is of bronze,
2 11-16 inches in diameter and 3-16 of an
inch in thickness, of a fine tone and ex
cellent workmanship. The design and
models were prepared by Bela Lyon Pratt,
B. F. A., a graduate of the Yale school of
fine arts.
The design is classical, simple and dig
nified —worthy of a university which in
cludes among its departments a school of
fine arts. The obverse contains a Bpirited
design in illustration of the motto of the
university, "Lux et Veritas." Above the
clouds Truth guides the chariot of Apollo,
bearing in her hand wreaths of fame in
the cause of truth. The reverse, between
two flaming antique torches, bears the

One of the features of the early morn
ing was the dedication of the memorial
gateway, erected by the graduates of 1886 j
in memory of Ward Cheney and Gerard !
Merrick Ives, two members of that class
who gave their lives for their country in
the Spanish-American war.
President Hadley delivered an appro
priate address. The gateway was recently
erected between Welch and Osborne hall i
as an entrance to the campus.
Six thousand graduates and students of
Yale marched In the parade last night. I*, j
was the popular manifestation of the ex
uberant spirit which has marked the ob
servances of this festival from the begin
The enthusiasm of visiting graduates:
and of the whole student body was fairly ,
let loose and the city of New Haven took '■
a large part in the celebration. The
march of the sons of Eli was through j
streets bordered with blue, brilliant with ;
many hued lanterns and bright with elec- I
trie light.
Accompanying the Yale students and
graduates were representatives of the
militia and naval forces of the state, while
several of Yale's sister Institutions of i
learning celebrated their quota of mem- j
j bers of the student body to assist in the j
academic parade. Harvard, Princeton, j
Trinity and Wessleyan were represented j
and their costumes were emblematic of
their respective institutions.
President Spend* the Day in a Con
necticut Town.
Farmlngton, Conn., Oct. 22.—President
Roos«velt, on the way to New Haven to j
attend the Yale bicentennial, spent the
day here, the guest of his sister, wife of
Commander Cowles, U. S. N. His train
reached the station, two miles from the
village, about 3:30 a. m., and there the
presidential special car was side tracked,
President Roosevelt sleeping until 7
o'clock. At that time Mrs. Cowles ar
rived and welcomed her brother and the
others of the presidential party, escort- i
ing them to the family residence in the I
village. Before leaving the station the
president shook hands and conversed with
several residents of the place, but In con
formity to his expressed wish that his
visit should be regarded as a private af
fair, there was no demonstrative wel
come such as the townspeople would have j
been glad to extend. Later in the morn- j
ing the president received the warden \
and burgesses of the borough, who ex
pressed their best wishes.

The Act Creating Gov. Plllsbnry a
Resent Increased the Board
to Thirteen.
Is there a vacancy on the board of
regents of the state university? The
The question is one upon which lawyers
disagree. As stated In The Journal
yesterday, the framer of the amendment
which made John S. Pillsbury a life mem
ber did not intend to Increase the board
permanently. His bill did increase
the number from twelve to thirteen, how
ever, and did not provide for a reduction
of members on the death of Governor
1 Pillsbury. The bill was chapter 15 of
! the laws of 1895, amending Chapter 3904
of the Revised Statutes of 1894. It reads:
The government of the university shall be
vested in. a board of thirteen regents, of
which the governor of the state, the state su
perintendent of public instruction, the presl
j dent of the university, and the Honorable
I John Sargent Plllsbury for and during his
I good pleasure as au honorary member, hay
■ ing the same power as any other member,
I shall be members ex offlcio, and the nine re
maining members thereof shall be appointed
by the governor by and with the advice and
consent of the senate. Whenever a vacancy
occurs for any cause, the same shall be filled
: for the unexplred term in the same manner.
The act by mistake names Governor
Plllsbury as an "ex-offlclo" member, for
;he did not hold any office. The only
| change the amendment made was to sub-
I etitute "thirteen" for "twelve" and to
I insert the clause: "And the Honorable
j John Sargent Pillsbury for and during his
good pleasure as an honorary member,
having the same power as any other mem
There are two views of the question
I taken. One holds that there must con
i tinue to be thirteen members, and that
' therefore there is a vacancy, which the
governor must fill by appointment to a
six-year term.
The other opinion is that the office was
that of an honorary member for life, and
that it ceased to exist with the holder's
death. The act created an additional
member in the person of Governor Pills
bury and on his death the num
ber reverts to twelve, three ex-offlcio and
nine appointed for terms of six years.
j Those holding this view call attention to
the which says: "Whenever a
vacancy occurs for eny cause, the same
shall be filled for the unexpired term in
the same manner." They hold that in
this case there can be no "unexpired
Governor Van Sant is In Winona to
day. He has not asked for an opinion
from the attorney general, but will do so
before acting. Not having examined the
question, the attorney general's office de
clines to express an opinion.
Director Eastman Takes Hold.
Alvah Eastman, the new resident director
of the St. Cloud normal school, has taken
hold. He has sent the August and September
expense accounts of the board of control,
leaving out the salary of W. B. Mitchell jae
purchasing agent. They were approved by
the board of control and vouchers w issued
this morning by the state auditor. The Au
gust account wag $395 and September, $2,777.

sary, but has not finished the complaint. It
will probably be filed to-morrow. The tax

Heatwole Hain't Changed.
Congressman Heatwold, who is in St. Paul
