16 TO HANG UNTIL DEAD Andrew Tapper Convicted and Sen- teneed at Chaska. PASSES THE ORDEAL UNMOVED Governor to Fix the Date of Kxe outlon-^Sentenoe of Court Indorsed. . Special to The Journal. Chaska, Minn., Oct. 23.—Andrew Tap per, the convicted murderer of Kosa Mixa, was sentenced by Judge Cadwell this morning to be hanged by the neck until dead. Tha courtroom was filled with people, and there was no oooler person present than Tapper himself. When asked if he had anything to say why sentence should not be pronounced. Tapper kept silent and without show of malice or bravado, listened to the words which ordered him to the gallows. He was cool and collected end went back to his cell In the county Jail without a word, snd as If the Impressive scene through *?Mch he had Just passed was of no per sonal Interest to him. It Is almost Im possible to believe that he realises his situation. The tried came to a close late yesterday afternoon -when the jury brought in a verdict of guilty In the first degree, after being out less than one hour. The facts brought out by the testimony •were that the girl was murdered at 5 o'clook a. m., June 3, 1901, her throat be ing cut. Several wounds were also found on her legs and arms, showing that a ter rible struggle had ensued before Tapper succeeded in overpowering her. The prisoner stood while the verdict wai read, but did not seem in the least to realize that it meant death to him. His long confinement has had its effect. His eyes are sunken and his body is emaci ated. Upon Governor Van Sant will devolve the unpleasant duty of fixing the date of execution. There may be appeals for clemency, but as Tapper's parents are both dead and his crime was so ferocious and unprovoked that the punishment pro nounced by the court is believed here to be none too severe, It seemß doubtful if much of an effort will be made in his behalf. Judge Cadwell adjourned the term of court after pronouncing sentence and will go to Shakopee to open a term there at once. PLYMOUTH CHURCH REMOVAL The Matter Is Finally Referred to a Committee. Plymouth Congregational church con gregation discussed removal last evening at an adjourned meeting.

Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn., Oct. 23.—President Don H. Bacon, late of the Minnesota Iron com pany, but now of the Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railway company, the greatest steel and iron making and Iron and coal min ing concern in the south, has been visit ing old friends here and at Ishpeming a few days lately. Mr. ©aeon can see nothing but prosper ity in the sky for the iron and steel trades for some time. He looks for 1902 to be a greater business year than this country has ever had. He considers the formation of the United, States steel cor poration a good thing for the trade end for outside concerns like hi 9 own. The Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railway company is the first company to make steel out of southern high-phosphorous ores. It is making 1.200 tons of basic open hearth steel daily that finds a ready sale. In fact, the company cannot fill its orders and is now preparing, Mr. Bacon says, to largely lnereas its facilities for steel manufacture. He expects open hearth to gradually replace Bessemer steel for all except the cheapest and coarsest woTk, and thinks open hearth can be made as cheaply in the south as anywhere. This company employs 15,000 men, mines 4,000,000 tons of coal and more than 2,500, --000 tons of iron ore yearly; makes 700,000 tons of pig iron and ships to Europe 1,000 tons of pig iron every day. It ships to the center of pig iron production in England, as well as to more remote localities. SCHOOL TO BE ENLARGED Congretaman Martin Looks Over a Gov't Institution at Rapids. Special to The Journal. Rapid City, S. D., Oct. 23.—Congressman Martin has made an investigation of the government Indian school in this city and al6o the land office, and finds them both in a flourishing condition. The Indian school was originally built with a capacity of eighty, but the enrollment is now 115 and is steadily increasing. An appropria tion waß made by the last congress of $20,000 for a girls' dormitory and a cot ,tage for the superintendent, both of which will be erected in the early spring. Other improvements will be made and the capacity of the school will be increased to 300. The school seems to be a favorite of the Indians, as they prefer it .to any other in this part of the country, the principal reason being that it is situated in the Black Hills, which has been their favor ite hunting grounds for centuries. THIEVES TRACED BY HOODS Black Hills Sheriff* Dogs Do Some Practical Work, Special .to The Journal. Belle Fourche, S. D., Oct. 23.—Three bloodhounds are In the possession of Sheriff Moses of Butter county, at the county jail in this city. They were pur chased to be used in trailing escaped prisoners and criminals. An incident oc curred a few days ago which served to prove the ability of the hounds. A quan tity of hay had been stolen from a farm near this city, and the hounds were given a scent at the hey stack and then liber ated. They followed the path of the .thieves and located them at a neighboring farm. Two young men were arrested and oon fessed their guilt.

GLOVER CASE AT GETTYSBURG Witnesses Describe the Assassina tion of Daly—One Impeached, on the Stand. Special to The Journal. Gettysburg, S. D., Oct. 23.—1n the trial of Rome Glover for shooting Abner Daly, Dr. S. E. Hurley testified as to the wound causing Daly's death. The next witness was A. E. Converse, who had been em ployed to make drawings showing the scene of the tragedy. These were ruled out, the witness swearing they were not correct. J. A. Lake related a conversa tion held with Rome C. Glover, the de fendant, last January. Glover said: "I could kill any Daly and no jury would ever convict me for it." A. D. McMaster of Gettysburg testified to meeting Glover on the street near the latter'a saloon, and asked him if he was badly used up in the fight with Daly the day before, and that Glover eaid: "Not bad> only a few cuts on my head; Daly is in Johnston's store, near by, and I will see him again." McMaster asked him: "What will you do to him?" Glover said: "Oh, I won't do anything to him." Ambrose Benoist said he was sitting on the sidewalk in front of Glover's sa loon, just east of the door, with several others, talking, when the shot was fired. He was looking at Daly, who was talk ing with William Benoi&t, the latter being in a buggy two feet in front of them. He noticed Daly had his right hand in his trousers' pocket, and just before the shot was fired made a move as if to pull a gun out. The witness said Daly seemed to be looking up at the window. Then he reeled and fell. The witness also looked up at the window and saw It had a screen on it, and there were two holes in it; that a man who went upstairs re moved the screen and took it back into the room. William Benoist swore he was in his buggy two feet from the sidewalk, his team facing east, or up the river; that the door of the saloon was west of him, a few feet; that his talk with Daly was about one of two women who passed on the sidewalk. He also said that while Daly and he were talking, he was looking straight at Daly's face and saw the spot under the eye where the bullet struck him, and heard the noise it made tear ing down through his head; saw him reel and fall. On cross-examination he swore he was west of the door about seven feet, and that Daly faced the building. When asked if he did not swear at the prelim inary examination that Daly faced north east, away from the building and toward the river, he said, "I did." The cross examination led to impeachment of the witness. MONTANA^TATE LANDS ; Over $45,000 Realised From the Sale In Flatkead County.

Cass Lake,- Minn., Oct. 23.—The Cass Lake Indians were supposed to receive their annuities yesterday, but owing to the fact that it was impossible for Cap tain Mercer, acting Indian agent at Leech Lake, and his corps of helpers to reach here in time, the payment was postponed till Friday.

HE BLAMED THE WOMAN JCRY COLLDX'T SEE IT THAT WAY Fall-Blood Sioux Indian Tries His Own Cane in < Hurt and I» Worsted. Special to The Journal. Sioux Falls, S. D., Oct. 23.—An incident in the United States court here Tuesday furnished the only case in the history of the United States court of South Dakota in which a full-blood Sioux Indian- de fended himself before a jury. The trial of Herbert Flute, a Sioux be longing on the Lower Brule reservation, on the charge of stealing a horse from Henry Useful Heart, one of his brethren, developed this unusual and unique fea ture. The accused declined the offer of the court to furnish him an attorney, and al though, he could not speak a word of Eng lish he decided to act as his own attorney. He conducted his defense through Alex ander Rencountre, the official interpreter of the federal court. Flute eloped with the wife of a neighbor, and the horse was taken for the purpose of aiding them in their flight. The accused stated in his argument that the Indian woman with whom he eloped told him she had traded a shawl for the horse; that he was to go and take the animal and ride it away, and that if trouble resulted she would take the blame herself, as he was "her brother" —a fa vorite term of endearment among the Sioux. Notwithstanding Flute's earnest attempt to throw the blame on the woman, the jury, after being out only about ten min utes, returned a verdict of guilty and he was sentenced to a term In prison.

Albert Lea, Minn., Oct. 23.—The county commissioners are in session and are transacting a lot of routine business. One important action was the rescinding of the resolution passed in July, li>oo, ordering the county attorney to begin an action to recover the amount paid \V. C Mitchell. then sheriff, for jailor's fees from Jan. 7, 1891, until Feb. 3, 1900, as the man ap pointed for the position never discharged the duties and the salary was drawn by Mr. Mitchell, A. E. Rolfson, the man ap pointed, being a brother-in-law of the sheriff. The commissioners decided that inasmuch as the work was well done and the county had not been called upon to pay only what it had expected to for the services given, there was no ground for an action. The controversy involved $5,450 without the interest that has ac crued. Consideration of the petition for the big drainage ditch in the towns of Riceland, Moscow and Geneva came before the com missioners, but no definite action has yet been taken. P. D. McMillan of Min neapolis and the local men interested are on the ground, and it is more than prob able the big ditch will be ordered con structed, as almost everybody owning property adjacent to the land affected has signed the petition. Another peti tion is to be presented asking that a tract of land in the township of Bath be ordered drained. This would affect sev- STORE WILL BE READY IN ABOUT A WEEK.
