received by a fall, took place Tuesday at
2 p. m. from the undertaking parlors of
Olson Earl, East Franklin avenue. The
young man was an entire stranger in" this

with him that he was an honest, upright
young man, and his associates wish it
understood that he was not the Braarud
arraigned in the police court under the
charge of assault. He was without money
or relatives so far as known, but thru the
efforts of friends and by assistance of the
Washburn-Crosby company he was saved
from a pauper's grave and buried in a
respectable way. Among the floral trib^
utes was a spray from the milling com

and neighbors. The sermon was preached
by Rev. Mr. Preus, and interment took

Judge Belden, Judge Koon, and Mr.

the importance of elevating a man to

CARLISLE'S TWIN
SEEN B Y NOBOD Y
INFORMATION GATHERED HERE
DOESN'T SUPPO RT CARLISLE.
Cavlise Never Was Seen with a
.Double at the West Hotel, and
Debralls Was Never Seen with''One
About the Bank of Minneapolis
Building. ' '
If the John J. Carlisle after whom
Sheriff Dreger went to Washington,
D . C , last night, had a double in the
person of J . J . Debralls, as he says,
and "played billiards with Debralls at
th West hotel," the people about the
hotel building who knew Carlisle best
and who would have been most like
ly to see him in the company of this
double, know nothing about it.
If Carlisle was associated with this
alleged double, Debralls, in the "acad
emy of occult science" business in the
Bank of Minneapolis building, the per
sons who saw most of Debralls and
knew him the best, during the month
of October^ when he had offices, in the
building, ivd not see the formes.
Carlisle'was registered at the West
hotel and occupied room 448 Oct. 8
to 22, the day 'he was married to Miss
Bonnie Hinkie.. H e gave the impres
sion to the desk man that he was a
western agent for a wine house, and
in that capacity put .several drafts
thru the vhotel. One of these went to
Pueblo, but beyond this Cashier Paul
Jensen does not remember the details
of these transactions.
Carlisle said he owned a bow-legged
bulldog and was in the market fqr
another was a man of striking ap -
pearance and dress, drank moderate
ly and played billiards considerably,
buying the drinks and cigars freely for
any one with whom he happened to
be playing. He was a "good spender."
he was a man to be noted
around the hotel.
Clerks Perry and Dennis P . Conry,
Cashier Jensen, the telephone ex -
change operators, who saw Carlisle
twenty times a day the bartenders
who served him, Charles Ferris and
others who played billiards with him
day after day, or who saw him play
billiards with many other people, re -
member him perfectly and give, with
out prompting, a description of him
which tallies -with that given by the
Journal's Washington correspondent.
But none of the West hotel people
remember having seen Carlisle with
any ore looking at all like him, and
he played with any one who was will
ing to play. The Carlisle "double" is
not recalled.
Dr. Henry F . Hoyt, who had offices in
the Bank of Minneapolis building dur
ing the month "J , J . Debralls" was
his "academy of occult
sicence" on the fifth floor and Edwin
Brenna, "the elevator boy, who has
been working in the building, forth e
past three months, say that the de
scription of J. J. Carlisle sent by the
Journal's Washington correspondent
corresponds to that of Debralls as they
knew him. ,
They also agree that, so far as they
ever heard or saw, Debralls had nomart
associate in the "occult science" busi
ness, and that he -was "th e whole
thing," as Dr. Hoyt expressed it.
"We opened offices at the same
time," said Dr. Hoyt this morning,
"and naturally introduced ourselves

joining offices will, "

HAS LEFT THE CAPITAL
Mrs. J . J . Carlisle I s Persuaded to Go
to Chicaso.
From, the Journal Bureau, Colorado Building:,
Washington.
Washington, Dec. 10.Friends of
Mrs. J. J. Carlisle, or Debralls, whose
husband was arrested here Tuesday
night on request of the Minneapolis
police on charges of larceny, have in
duced her to leave Washington pend
ing the disposition of his case, and
she is now on her way to Chicago,
where she will be cared for by friends
and will get the rest which she soMinnesota
badly needs.
Meantime Carlisle is at the police
station here, waiting the arrival of
Minneapolis officers with a requisi
tion for his extradition. A telegram
was received stating, that an officer
would reach Washington to-morrow
afternoon. . Carlisle has not made up
his mind whether he will fight ex -
tradition, or waive examination and
return to Minneapolis for trial.
Carlisle displays a most intimate
knowledge of . the . business of De stricted
bralls' academy of hypnotism. T o
the Journal correspondent to-day he
said that Miss Heebner had not put
up $500 but $250. H e asserts that
she bought a fourth interest in the
business, giving that sum for it, and
arranged to share in the profits. His
connection with the transaction was
to act as "reference." Miss Heebner
wpuld not put up her money until
Debralls had given her some refer
ence as to the stability of the con
cern and the prospects of profit.
"I advised her that it was a good
investment," said Carlisle. " I be aration
lieved it was, and is yet for that mat-
ter."

Still UnbrokenMcGhee Believes
the Third Ma n Could B e Found.
Antonio Calderone will not be tried
for the murder of Salvatore Battalia
before the middle of next January.
Upon the motion of County' Attorney
FV H. Boardman, Judge Simpson this
morning continued the case over the
term against the strenuous objections
of F . L. McGhee, counsel forth e de -
fendant.
Several hundred people eager to get
a glimpse of the accused murderer as
sembled in the corridors near Judge
Simpson's courtroom this morning arid
when the doors were opened the room
was quickly packed with spectators.
The prisoner, handcuffed and guarded
by three deputy sheriffs, was brought
in at 10 o'clock and there "."as a gen
eral craning of necks to see the much
advertised Italian. .
"The state against Antonio Calder-
one," said the court. /.
"The defendant is ready for trial,"
promptly answered Mr. McGhee.
The county attorney then addressed
the court, stating that owing to cer
tain facts, which he did not wish
to make known to the court in pub
lic, the state was not ready to go to
trial at this time, that the best in
terest of the state would be endan
gered by proceeding, and he there
fore moved a continuance over the

A NE1 DIGEST FOR MINN.
MARK B . DUNNELIi APPOINT ED
B Y THE SUPREME COURT T O
DO THE WORK.
The new digest of decisions of the
supreme court, to be pre
pared by Attorney Mark B. Dunno*
of Minneapolis under authority grant
ed by the coUrt yesterday, will be pub
lished two years hence.
The last legislature directed the su
preme court to arrange for the publi
cation of the new digest, and specified
that 500 copies of the work, when
completed, are to be purchased by
the state. This enactment answered
a wide-spread demand on the part ot
Minnesota lawyers. They are now re
to a digest issued under pri
vate auspices in three volumes and
covering some sixty-seven of the
eighty-seven volumes of Minnesota
reports already published. A fourth
volume of the same digest would be
needed within two years, when thfi
number of volumes of reports would be
at least 100. The new d^est will ap -
pear as two volumes, royal octavo, of
1,000 pages each.
Mr. Dunnell, the editor chosen by
the court, is the author of several vol
umes upon Minnesota law that have
found favor with the bar. I n the prep
of his digest he has been di
rected by the court to observe the
rules for digesting as adopted by,, the
American Bar association, with a view
to securing uniform i-eferences and
indices for decisions by all American
courts. -...':

APPRAISERS.
$35.00 $50.00
It will cost $55,050 to secure the two
blocks designated for the East Side
park in connection with the Interna
tional Auditorium grounds. This
amount has been fixed by the apprais
ers, and while the awards are satis
factory to the larger holders, it is not
yet certain that the smaller owners
and leaseholders will accept the dic
tum of the appraisers.
The board has awarded a total of
$21,750 for the block between the
East High school-and the auditorium,
and $83,300 for the block between the
auditorium and Central avenue. Of
this amount, the Chute Brothers com
pany is awarded $20,550, Mary Eliza
beth Pratt, $13,060, and Catherine
Hauser, $12,450.
In order to get the park "in the
usual way, the East Siders will have
to pay $5,500 a year for ten years. If
the assessments should be extended
so as to include 1,0 OD lots, the average
would be $5, but property facing the
park would naturally be assessed at
a higher rat than that four or five
blocks away. *" "

CALDERONE'S ATTORNEY PRO
TESTS AGAINST CONTINUANCE.
McGhee Opposes Delay.
Mr. McGhee objected strenuously,
saying that he had gone to much
trouble and expense to have the base
prepared at/this time, that he had I
acted under the instructions of the
court in so doing, and that his client,
a poor man, was entitled to the con
sideration and protection of the court.
Notwithstanding this appeal, Judge
Simpson held that if the state's case
was unprepared at the present time
they were entitled to a continuance.
The prisoner, sitting near the trial
table, evidently listened to the pro
ceedings, but neither by look or.mo
tion did he give any. sign that the
decision of the court was of the
slightest concern to him. When the
continuance was ordered, Calderone
was again handcuffed and marched
back to jail, Where he will remain at
least until the middle, of January, as
the first jury day of next term is
Jan. 11, and Mr. McGhee intimated
this morning that his business ar -
rangettients would be such that he
could probably not try the Calderone
case before Jan . 16 or 17,
Talks of "Third Man. "
"If I had the money spent and the
facilities used by the chief of police
on the day I turned Calderone over
to the sheriff I would have "the third
here to eat Sunday dinner with
him."
This statement was made by F . L.
McGhee, Calderone's attorney, in dis
cussing the continuance of the mur
der case over the term this morning.
It gives color to the theory advanced
in inner circles that the defense is
prepared forth e trial and will intro
duce a third man to the bridge party
where Calderone stabbed and killed
Salvatore Battalia, and make-his story
the backbone of their case...
"I am just conceited enough to be
lieve that I can dig this fellow up, "
continued the lawyer. "If I do find
him, I shall certainly bring him right
into court because his story cannot
but be favorable to my client, and
it will prove without a doubt that
Calderone stabbed Battalia in self
defense, pure and simple.
"The state, is up against a , stone
wall in this case, and they are siirtply
asking for time in which to devise,a
play by which the obstacle can be
surmounted. W e were really ready
for trial this morning, and I am dis
appointed that we could not get at the
case without any further delay."

and after I had drawn him out on
the question of the Indian fakirs, in

told him of my several years in the

he said: '
" 'Oh, but you were on the main line
of travel and saw the/ simple fakirs.
You should have gone with me up into

"After that I didn't believe very

FIRE IN PRINTING PLANT,
Blaze in Old Courthouse Building Causes
$2,000 Damage.
Fire in basement of the old courthouse,
now occupied by The Housekeeper com
pany, damaged the building and contents
to the extent of $2,000. The fire was dis
covered shortly after it started at 8:30 last
night, and was soon brought under con
trol by the department. The loss is fully
covered by insurance and the damage is
of such a nature that it did not cripple the
establishment, work being -resumed jth'js
afternoon. .'[ '.. ~V^" . 1 ' -
The exact origin of the fire is not known
but it is supposed to have started from
the electric wires in a room in the base
ment where papers and clippings were
filed. From the basement, the flames rap
idly crept thru the floor above and finally
the third floor, but the damage on
the second and third floors was nominal.
