WEDNESDAY EVENING LOOKS-UK MURDER Body of an Unknown Man found Back of a Washington %.- Ave. Saloon. The Injuries Which Caused Death Practically Preclude Theory of Accident.' Weltering in a pool of blood, the bod# of an unknown man was found lying be neath the second landing of the stairs leading to the rooms over Loomis' saloon, 113 Washington avenue S, early this morn ing. Marks upon the head and other parts of the body would indicate that the man had been murdered, while the fact that but 50 cents were found upon his body points to robbery as well. The body was taken. to the county morgue, where 4t awaits identification. --. ^ Chris Jamieson and Frank Martin wer-' passing thru the alley at 5 o'clock this morning and-stumbled over the body. They notified the police, who in turn called the coroner. An examination showed that the scalp on the right side of the head was cut loose and hung over the ear, while the skull appeared to be fractured over the left eye. Marks were also found upon-the left side of the nose and one hand was badly lacer ated. A hat, soaked with blood, w as found on the doorstep leading to the rooms over Loomis' saloon. Blood was also found Upon the stone doorsill. ' ..-*. while the body shows wounds on both aides, either of which, would have been sufficient to cause death. The blood on the steps cannot be accounted for upon the accident theory. The man was evidently a laboring man, a painter perhaps, as Is indicated by his clothing. H e was about 45, heavily built, dark complexioned and weighted about 200. H e wore a dark mustache and had a heavy head of hair. No papers were found in his clothing. Three Suspects Arrested.

Hi s muxearers were probably following. H e reached the door and found it locked. Here the murderers overtook. him, struck him over the -e ye with a slung shot, robbed the body and dropped it over the landing into the alley below. This would explain the position occupied by the body, for had the man fallen over the railing his body would have been found hearer the c"enter of the alley, instead of directly beneath the land ing. One thing that puzzles Coroner Williams and the officers is how the man came to have marks upon both sides of the.helad unless he,was murdered. They p6iht but that had he fallen over the railing acci dentally, the injuries would only have been found on the one side of the head, was taken from Harris,""a chisel from Mc David while Towne was unarmed. The men are being held while the police are investigating. The prisoners are strang ers to the police but appear to be a hard lot. BOUQUET YOB, Y&BK BOABTJ Melville Dewey of Albany, N.

Bertrand & Chamberlin have'submitted a design for the suggested pla*a, armory and auditorium arrangement of the'block of land bounded by Third and Fourth avenues, Fifth and Sixth streets, oppo site the courthouse and city hall. The plan provides for a parked plaza on the Fifth street half of the block, white -in one building- shall be placed the armory and the auditorium. - the latter adjoining - Fourth avenue and the former Third avenue. I t is suggested that almost dead walls ftiay be provided for the three sides of the.building facing'thfe avenues and Sixth street, to shut out-the-noise of traffic. ^ With a heavy- transverse wall, noises from the -armory' would be shut off so as n^t to .'interfere, .with entertainments in the auditorium. ,t f - The ^feigners'have* MadV'he~'bluildlhg face Fifth street and the plaza, so that DIAGRAM OF .SUGGESTEDi jQOURTHOUSE PLAZA r Jha^..|te .

An appeal to the courts will be re sisted and shoujti the new commission ob tain possession it will be only after fight ing every step of its way. , - Carping critics will say that the county commissioners and the aldermen are promp'ted by resentment over the law to deprive them of patronage. There are about twenty positions at the disposal of the county board and about ten for the council committee on public ^grounds and buildings. Bu t aside from - any- considerr ation of,-patronage able lawyers: contend that the.commissioners and aldermen have the law behind them. It is urg^S that the act creating the municipal building Commission is unconstitutional, because it is an amendment to the special act creat ing the old courthouse and city hall com, mission which built the. structure and is still in complete, coiitrol of the ..unfinished portions. "-."-The--act is thus in contravention. Of the constituttoiitfl provisions prohibiting special legislation and lawyers say that it is not only special in effect,'as. relating only to Hennepin county, but it is special in form as well. A. majority of the members o t the hew commission sincerely hope that the claim will be sustained by the courts. They are not at all desirous to' take charge of the big building and would have lobbied against the bill had they known what was going on in the legislature. Nevertheless, when the time comes it will be their duty to demand possession and in the event of opposition to take the matter into court. FIGHT WITH EAGLES Park Board's Live Specimens Besent the Friendly Advances of ' - a Porter. Only the Vigorous Use of a Club Saves Ma n From Serious ,, J -,} v.\J, The American Eagle again asserted its supremacy in no uncertain fashion yes terday. The particular specimens of the American bird which lived up to the tra ditions of their race were ^the gray eagles which make their winter quarters in the "Old Curiosity Shop" at No. 10 Washing ton avenue N. The victim was Jesse Wiley, the colored porter, who with a bad ly lacerated arm, has concluded, that as a spread agle orator he is not a success. The two eagles are wards oi the park board during the summer and WiJey was trying to capture them to take them to Minnehaha park., When he entered,, the cage he addressed the birds in endearing terms to show there was ho ill-feeling,, the while he hid a club behind him. The eagles suspected his motive and kept their eyes on the club. One .of them made a feint to attract Wiley's attention and then the air was full of eagles and Wiley. The birds jammed Wiley into a corner of the cage and jumped on him with four feet, clawing and pecking at him in savage fury- "Hit him with the club!" shouted an attendant to the bewildered and nearly smothered porter. Thus admonished, Wiley got elbow room and countered with his right. H e landed on one eagle's beak and floored him. Another blow drove the second eagle to its corner and Wiley Iea a precipitate retreat from the cage. "I'm a good chicken catcher,' 'said Wiley, with a grimace, as he started for a adoctor, "but when it comes to eagle's 'scuse me.' " - Both eagles are now at Minnehaha and one is slowly recuperating from a bruised head. : New York. April 20.

Savage Will Devote Part of His Purchase to Public Use. He Has Bought Entire Property and Will Preserve the Au- , . ditorium. M. W, Savage, has bought the Minne apolis exposition property. H e will pre serve the auditorium for large gather ings and will retain the first floor for such indoor fairs as poultry exhibitions, live stock or horse shows. H e will im prove the entire vacant frontage on Main street, running to Bank street, as a pub lic park, in recognition of the historic interest of the spot in connection with the discovery of St. Anthony falls. The The Real Estate Dealer Who Suggested and Engineered the Exposition Sale. \yuilding -will he put in repair at once and will be occupied before fall. It.is understood that the price was about $65,000. The exposition was bought from the present owners through the agency of Thomas A. Jamieson, -who- long ago sug gested the site as an ideal one for the International Stock Food business, in which Mr. Savage is engaged. To Retain Auditorium. Mr. Savage will spend about $40,000 on the building. H e will maintain the au^ ditorium, not with the purpose, of cutting out the ne-w muslo hall proposition, hut to provide a large hall for big gatherings and conventions as long as required. He will construct direct entrances from three sides,of the auditorium, doing away with the present tortuous exits. The first fldor will be retained for the accommodation of large horse, stoclt, poul try and automobile shows.- With the ex ception of the printing establishment, this floor will be free from wall to wall. The manufacturing business will be confined to the two floors of the present art gal lery building attached to the exposition. On the second floor will be the largest oftice \n t\\ -north-west. I n uvmenslons it Will be 50 by 300 feet. The large force of stenographers, clerks and bookkeep ers will be housed in a room which for light and air will notbe .surpassed in the country It will be built on the river side of the building with the entire west wall formed of glass windows. Stock rooms will take up a portion of the building. The building with six floors and the art gallery will have 600,- 000 square feet of floor space. Pome of this will be devoted to storerooms. Mr. Savage said to-day that he wanted the remainder of the room to grow in. "The husinessha.!? overl'iowed the capacity of the present factories but it is expected that some time wll lelapse before tlfe exposi tion will be outgrown. Mr. Savage's idea is first to make "the building safe, next to put it in present able shape,and lastly to arrange it for his business. The only signs which will be placed on the building will, if placed at all, be on the roof the river side of the building' will not be defaced'. T. A. JAMIESON. .'...- A Park. Feature. Mr. Savage's public spirit crops out in his determination to improve and pre serve as a semi-public park the valuable frontage on Main street. Minneapolis will profit much by this ac - quisition by Mr. Savage. The first thing he will do will be to issue all over the world one million lithograph pictures of this new home for the International Stock Food company. This will make Minne apolis famous, or as Mr. Savage ex presses it, "will not hurt Minneapolis any." His will be the largest industrial plant under one roof in the northwest.! Plans for Social Betterment. ' - i . Mr. Savage wil -seize this oportunity to develop, social or industrial betterment plans, which he has had in mind for some time. The factory now has a force of 300 employes. Of this number at least 200 are girls, 110 of whom are in the of fice. It is expected that with the natural growth of the business the. women, em ployes will number eventually about BOO. To. provide entertainment for this, lar^e number along the lines advocated by the Institute for Social service of Ne w York, Mr. Savage wil. devote considerable space in his new building, and it, is expected that this/will work improvement in con tiguous sections of the east side.. During the summer or outdoor months the park on the river front of the build ing, with its grass and flower plots and with its magnificent view of the river'and falls, will be a place of recreation. In addition there will be provided artistically arranged* reading? rest, gymnastic rooms and lunchrooms. In the reading-room will' be periodicals and newspapers in the rest rooms willbe cots and lounging divans in the-gymnasium will be light apparatus. The lunchrooms will be made thoroly up" to date, with the latest accessories for the comfort of employes^ who bring their meals or secure them at the factory. -- . ?.: Another plan in mind is to arrange en tertainments - for the employes, perhaps during the noon hour, or in the evenings. These will take the forfh of concerts, pop ular lectures and the like. OTHERS WERE AFTER IT ' H. I. Marks Arrived Yesterday Prepared to Buy Building. : M. W. Savage bought the. exposition building in the nick of time. H. I. Marks of Ne w York, formerly of Minne apolis, arrived yesterday with instructions to purchase the property, but he.arrived too late. Mr. Savage had already' closed his deal. .....: A Ne w York syndicate had had itj^eyes on the property from the time it became generally known that the big structure was for sale. A s soon as it was announced that Mr. Savage had failed to secure the property seveial weeks ago, the. New York people set out to acquire the buildiiig.' ' It was planned to incorporate a new stock food company to occupy the struc ture and to use part of it in an amusement enterprise like the famous Madison Square garden with an annual northwestern horse show second only to the big spec tacle of the kind in Ne w York an^d Chi cago.

Mr., Mafks,r who operates a hooking agency in Ne w York and is an all-round theatrical promoter, is contemplating the erection of another vaudeville theater here.

It would be an .easy matter, he thinks, to estahWsh a circuit with lpading cities, providing an - other theater: can be constructed in St. Paul, so that ^companies could make both cities at one jump.
