Joseph Hegbeart's Wounds Indicate
That He Was Foully Slain.
Clothing: in Place Over Ballet Hole
Heglteart Could .Not Have
Replaced It.
Joseph Hegbeart, whose body was found
in the woods near Portland avenue and
Forty-sixth street Saturday noon, may
have been murdered. An autopsy held
at tho morgue yesterday by Coroner Wil
liams and Deputies Kistler and Murphy
disclosed the fact that the two wounds in
the man's body, one in the back of the
head and the other in the breast, would
hardly have been self inflicted. The in
vestigation showed, further, that the
clothing about the body—two shirts, the
bib of a pair of overalls and suspenders
supporting the trousers—was in place and
yet had not been penetrated by the bullet.
The bullet entered the heart and severed
several veins and arteries, and would have
caused instant death. It would have been
impossible for the man to replace the
clothing after firing the shot. The wound
on the back of the bead is on the right
side, opposite that in the breast, showing
that the revolver if fired by the victim
must have been changed from one hand to
the other, which, considering the nature
of the wounds, would have been impossi
ble. The mystery is deepened by the dis
appearance of two of Hegbeart's compan
ions, who were with him continuously for
several days before the shooting.
Body Found by Boys.
The discovery of the body was made
by Pearl and Harry Krako, 2424 Fifth ave
nue S, who had started on a hunting
trip. They hurried back home and in
formed their father, who notified the po
lice. The body was removed to the
morgue. The dead man wore the clothes
of a laborer, overalls, two shirts, and a
heavy pair of buckle shoes. There was
nothing to indicate his identity save two
old papers addressed to James Hegbeart.
The body will be held at the morgue for a
few days to make positive identification
Many of His Methodist Colleagues
Take Issue With His De
duct ions.
Rev. Dr. J. F. Chaffee read a
paper ytsterday morning before the
meeting of the Methodist ministers
on the fall of Adam Eve in
the Gardf-n of Eden. The paper
showed careful preparation and thought.
It received much applause and was ac
corded compliments by each brother cler
gyman who discussed its conclusions, but
it was evident that the majority did not
accept Dr. Caaffee's deductions.
Rev. W. H. Rider, the new pastor of
Simpson church, said that the paper indi
cated that the writer was a student — a
reader of books. He said in part:
I believe *n theistic evolution and find a
great deal of comfort in it. I think that the
mistake of a great many and perhaps of the
essayist is to undertake to account for all the
world's history by a single hypothesis. I
take the evolution of creation and the direct
power of the spirit life on matter, and what
1 cannot explain with the one I do with the
I Dr. P. A. Cool, recently come to the
j Fowler church, says that he had read Dr.
! Chaffee's writings in different periodicals
j for years. He said:
It is an excellent paper. As to its teach
ings, that is another question. He sets aside
all theories of inspiration. In the second
j place he magnifies the theories of science.
I The paper is materialistic from start to fin
ish. The logic did not take into account the
; personality of man. Leave this out and the
j strongest argument of the existence of the
I personality of God is gone. Robert Ingersoll
would adopt that paper, every word of it.
Spencer would adopt that paper. It was a
I consistent paper. Its doctrine of reversion
j leaves out tie doctrine of a personal devil,
jas well as is personality of God and of
man. That paper sweeps away not only what
| Moses said in the first three chapters of Gene
j sis, but it also sweeps away the book of Ro
mans, the book of Paul to the Hebrews; it
sweeps away the doctrine of the Cross.
Rev. Dr. Love, of the First church, be
lieved this was taking Dr. Chaffee too se
riously. He did not understand that Dr.
Chaffee attacked inspiration but a special
theory of inspiration. He said he would
like to know if those who preach Sunday
after Sunday believed that the book of
Gensis was an account of actual fact in
historical sequence, or a gathering of all
the facts in poetical form. The first cre
ation was a physical creation. The scrip
tures did not say how much time elapsed
between the creation of the animal part
of man before the Creator breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life.
Some Manufacturers Complain That
It Is Prohibitive.
St. Paul manufacturers who have at
tempted to buy standing timber in north
ern Minnesota comlpain that prices are so
high as to be prohibitive. High prices,
they say, o<bta,in on all lands in the
market, even those not very accessible.
A Wisconsin buyer offered $4.50 a thou
sand for 15,000,000 feet of pine on a few
scattered 'forties, only to have his bid
flatly declined. Manufacturers say that
conditions will soon 'become serious if
reasonable prices are not accepted.
Owners of timber lands say that the
complaints of manufacturers are of long
standing. Manufacturers, they, say, seem
una'tole to realize that the pine is becom
ing scarcer each year, and that it should
consequently command a higher price.

How James Doran Amused Himself
v While in Jail. *
.Vow He Has Come to Trial and
Encounters the Real
James Doran, who has been in Jail ever
since state fair week was tried this morn
, ing for grand larceny. He was arrested
charged with stealing $40 from a stranger
at the St. Louis station.
i Doran has been amusing himself in jail
by conducting mock trials over his fellow
prisoners. He invariably took the part
of county attorney and examined the pris
oners at the bar rigidly.
It is said that these mock trials were In
the nature of dress rehearsals for the
actual trials aibout to come. The prison
er was required to tell his story as he
intended to when placed on the stand, the
purpose being to patch all flaws and weak
spots. It is not of record, however, that
any of these games worked with any suc
cess when the county attorney's office sup
planted Doran as prosecuting officer.
Unlucky In Farming, I nauccessf ul In
a Law Snit, He Succeeded
In Suicide.
Gottlieb Williams, despondent because of
I his failure in a farming venture which In
volved him in •litigatiop and quarrels with
the owner of the farm he had been unsuc
cessful in working, ended his life by shooting
himself In the head with a revolver. The
body was found this morning on the bed in
bis poor apartments in the rear of the build
ing at tilo Plymouth avenue N. Several days
ago he lost a suit brought against him and
was ejected from the farm. Saturday he
went to get his few personal effects and
farm implements and a violent quarrel with
the owner and several of the farm hands en
sued. In this Williams was roughly used,
according to the story of the affair he told
upon his return to town In the evening. He
called on a lawyer and had made arrange
ments to have his assailants arrested for
assault and battery to-day. He then returned
to his rooms and ended his life.
Williams came to Minneapolis about a year
ago and engaged two small and poorly fur
nished rooms in the rear of the barber shop
at 615 Plymouth avenue. Early in the spring
he rented a farm^on the Rockford road,
about ten miles ou" A lease for four years
was drawn up. Williams, however, could
not make the payments and last month suit
was brought against him. He lost in the liti
gation, and.was served with a writ of eject
ment. Friday he brought his team to town,
and Saturday returned for the few things on
the premises that belonged to him. When he
returned Saturday afternoon his fact and
head bore several bruises. He said he had
quarreled with his landlord and several hired
men "pitched onto" him at the same time.
He was unable to defend himself and was
beaten severely.
After consulting an attorney Williams went
home, lay down on the Ised and sent a bullet
from a revolver through his head, holding
the muzzle of the gun against his right tem
ple. Death seems to have been instantaneous.
It is evident that the deed was done Saturday
night. William is survived by a brother and
sister who live in Minneapolis.
Interesting Papers Read—A Rally
This Evening-.
The seventh annual convention of the
j Twin City Central Luther League began
| yesterday at St. Peter's Danish Evau-
I gelical Lutheran church, 2003 Ninth street
S. About fifty representatives of twin
city churches were present and much in
terest was taken in the paper read by
Jens Jensen on the benefit received by
j individual leagues from the central gath
! ering. The league meets in Minneapolis
j for fall services and in St. Paul in May.
Its object is similar to that of the Ep
i worth League and of the Christian En
deavor society. It is composed of young
er church members.
This afternoon Rev. C. L. Warstler gave
a paer on "How Can the Individual Ben
efit the Church at Large?" He was fol
lowed by B. N. Lambert, of Minneapolis
on "Self Reliance of Leaguers." Miss
Lydia Lagerstrom reported for the visi
tation committee. An election of officers
closed the afternoon's work.
County Commissioners Simply Asked
Printers to Bid.
j A bundle of bills passed by the county
commissioners this morning will help the
board to carry out its determination to have
every debt cleaned up by the first of the year.
A petition requesting the county commis
sioners to advertise for bids for supplying
the county with tax statement books for 1902
was received. The petition was signed by
seme forty citizens, including W. G. Nye, C.
W. Gardner, W. L. Badger, Judge A. H.
Young, Senator G. P. Wilson and C. S.
Cairns. Shortly afterward bids were opened
for the same tax bids, the lowest bid being
that of the Great Western Printing company,
which offered to supply the fourteen books
for $11.75 per book. The bids were not in
response to a public advertisement, but it
was naively explained that some one had goni±
to the printers and told them to submit bids.
As only three bids were received, the
obliging emissary must have tired of his Job
early in the game.

Why Certain Youngsters Won't
Have a Merry Christmas.
Hlkli Salaried Offices Have Been
Multiplied and the Deficit
Will Be Heavy.
It is going to be a lean Christmas for
the members of the police department.
They will get their usual stipends this
month, but for December about the best
they can hope to get is 40 cents on the
dollar. The department authorities have
ibeen throwing out bills for the past two or
three months, but at that it was found
impossible to keep the appropriation up to i
the point where everybody could come in
for a full salary in December. The pay
roll aggregates about $18,000 a month, and
it looks now as though there would be
less than $6,000 to meet December salaries.
The deficit for the year will be little if
any short of $12,000.
How Economy Is Practiced.
That the pending deficit has not worried
the mayor a bit is apparent from the fact
that he has gone on increasing the salary
list clear up to date. As fast as a man
dropped out he has filled the place imme
diately and kept .the force clear up to the
legal limit of 225 men. He has gone on
increasing the number of "men of rank"
as well. The September pay roll con
tained sixty-six men drawing the pay of
sergeants, lieutenants and captains,
against forty-six, the average for previous
administrations. Now there are sixty
seven men above the rank of patrolman,
one more captain having been added since
The actual number of patrolmen now
available for duty is about 115, including
the mounted squad. In other words,
practically one-half of the force travel
beats. The rest fill the roles of janitors,
jailers, municipal court detail, loaf about
town and headquarters in the guise of
plain clothes men or do the bossing.
There are twenty-seven men doing duty
as detectives, against eight, the average
of past years. Two of the twenty-seven
take orders from the mayor alone and
never report to the chief.
Other Departments Short.
Another city department where the em
ployes will celebrate the holiday season
none too joyously Is the city assessor's
department. The November pay roll prac
tically wipes out the appropriation. There
will be left $36 for meeting the secre
taries' salaries. Fire department salaries
will also be cut, but only slightly. The
deficits in all departments will, of course,
be made up from the appropriations for
next year, but the money will not be
available until after Jan. 1.
But Scientists Doubt Reports* From
Gulf of .Mexico.
The question of the existence in the ocean
of surh monsters as sea serpents is again
the subject of agitation because of the report
of H. H. N'elligan, one of the observers of
marine events, to the hydrographic office of
the navy department. The report- tells of a
sea serpent about ICO feet in length seen in
the Gulf of Mexico not far from the mouth of
the Mississippi. The creature possessed pe
culiar characteristics, such as a blunt nose,
three sets of fins, a paddle-haped tail and a
series of humps along the back.
Scientific authorities at the University of
Minnesota believe in the existence of the sea
serpents, but raise a question as to their size.
Sea serpents are known which grow to be ten
feet in length. In the mesozoic period, crea
tures existed, now known as pythenomorpha.
These resembled the lizard, and never came
to land. Later they disappeared and the ser
pent was differentiated.
As to the creature seen by the naval ob
server, Professor Sardeson is of the opinion
that because of its great length and the pos
session of three fins it could not belong to
the order of snakes or vertebrates, and that
what the man taw was probably a group of
animals swimming together. Professor Siger
foos believes that the description is not at all
accurate and that the animal may have been
a large whale.
Roosevelt Marching Club Will Give
Catchy Opera.
The Roosevelt Marching Club next April
will give the opera, "The Viking." It was
brought out last year in Boston and is full
of catchy music. The club has gone to great
expense in procuring the rights and will
stage the proluction in the finest possible
manner. The novelty will be the assignment
of the parts of chorus girls and other feminine
roles to members of the club. Rehearsal once
a week will be continued through December.
The remainder of the winter the members of
th all-star company will rehearse twice a
week and as spring draws nigh hard practice
will be required every evening. If the opera
is the success that is expected some other
cities will be given an opportunity to hear
"The Viking" sung by the club.
W. W. Belting Company Objects to
the Association's Prices.
The Jewell Belting company, represented in

list adopted by the Leather Belting Manufac
turers' Association, which is said to be an
other name for the leather trust. At the an
nual meeting of the association in New York

per cent over those of the last two years.
E. P. Browning of the Northwestern com

Alleged Neglectful Husbands Have
Their (Jis.-« tolled.
As a means of bringing erring husbands
to a realization of their duties to their
families the new law making it a criminal
offense for a husband and father to aban
don and neglect his family is proving i
quite a success in this county. The law i
went into effect only last spring, but Min
neapolis has several reunited families as
a result of it. Six cases of abandonment
and neglect carried over from previous
terms were nolled this morning, the de
fendants being George W. Sebastian
Henry Merritt, Ole Simpson, Jay Prink,
Albert Bardeman and Henry Voight.
They had escaped trial by giving prom
ise to discharge their marital duties and
their cases had been continued, the result
being that the men were practically on
probation. There was no backsliding and
