SILBERBERG HASTENING T O HER SON'S BEDSIDE. M r Bonnie Hinlde Carlisle Goes to ChicagoAuthorities Believed to B e Formulating Another Charge Against the Prisoner, Who I s Still Very 111. Three more hemorrhages were suf fered by Silberberg, alias Carlisle, in the county ja il last night, and he ap pears to be growing weaker. Sheriff Dreger is beginning to re ceive replies to numerous inquiries he sent out legarding the prisoner's rec ord. A letter has also been received from Silberberg's mother, Mrs. Minna F . Silberberg of Fort Smith, Ark , ex pressing surprise at her son's arrest and apprehension over his condition. I t is believed that she has been noti fied of the prisoner's serious illness, and that she is already e n route to Minneapolis. Aaion Silberbeig of Denver has come to Minneapolis in an effort to be of some assistance to his brother. The bi other, who is a conti actor and build e r of good standing in his own com munity, called, upon Harry Silberberg yesterday afternoon and was obliged to introduce himself to Sheriff Dreger in order to gain admittance to the jail, but he is- stopping at a boarding house and making every effort to avoid pub licity. H e has also had a conference with "Carlisle's" attorney, Frank Lar rabee, and says he is simply here be cause of "Carlisle's" desperate illne ss Silberberg is vei weak and de spondent. Mrs. Carlisle in Chicago. Bonnie Hmkle Carlisle left on the Chicago Gieat Western last evening foi Chicago, taking trie tiam at St Paul She was met at the station there this morning by a young lady apparently about her age, who greeted her eftusivel3, and after Mrs. Carlisle s handbag had been left at the parcel- 100m the two went uptown to break fa st at a lestaurant Mis. Cailisle's attitude tow ard the man she married is something of a mystery, hut her departure with her husband in such senous condition is thought to indi cate that in some measure at least his power over her is broken. There is evidence that the man couited and married her purely as a speculation and the accommodating self-efface ment of Mrs. Tuck indicates that she was fully cognizant of the plan and was to share what proceeds theie might be Since his first affair with Mrs Tuck, "Carlisle" has victimized oi attempted t p victimize no less than -four women, including Miss Hinkle, and each time he seems to have shared with the Tuck woman. If the prisoner ieco\ers he will probably have to face other charges than that of defrauding Miss Heebnei out of $250 County Attorney Board man would not admit this morning that additional mfoimation would be laid befoie the grand 3ury, but when questioned specifically said he under stood the securing of a marriage licen se under an assumed name was against the statute Tho Silberberg has left a wake of bad paper and shat tered confidence clear around the woi id there does not appear to be a sing le criminal charge against him ex cept m the Heebner case. Rinker Knew Hun. ' I knew this man Carlisle or Sil berbeig quite well out in Montana," said City Engineer Andrew Rinker this morning "When I was living at Great Falls he had general charge of Senator Clark's newspapers at Great Falls, Helena and other places, and was high in the favor of Senatoi Clark and his son Charles. 1 don't doubt but that he was paid all that he says$600 a weekfor he was certainly he highest roller I evei saw Whenever he went any where it was by special train, and the manner m which he set the pace for the sporty youths was always a source of much talk. 'He had a golden opportunity with the Clarks, and. with his income and chances for investment, could have become a compaiatively wealthy man in a few years I t must be humiliat ing for a fellow with his talents and expenence to be caught m such a petty affair. Out in Montana he was always known as 'Jack' Drayton. Most people considered him an adventurer, but admitted that he was unusually clever."

O N THE WATCH FOR CROOKS POUCE EXPECT A N INFLUX O F UNDESIRABLE CHARACTERS. Chicago's New Vagrancy Law Will Result in a General Housecleaning and tlie Smaller Cities Will Suffer Chief Conroy Prepares for a Cru- sade. Housecleaning in Chicago is ex pected to result in bringing into Min neapolis many crooks who have been driven out of the windy city by the new vagrancy law, the first of its kind ever passed in that city. I n connec tion with this move, Chief of Police Conroy is preparing for a vigorous crusade against vagrants and sus picious chaiacters, and the police court will be busier than it has ever been before. For many years Chicago has been witbout a vagrancy law, and there has been no way to dispose of sus picious characters Beggars were charged -v\ ith disorderly conduct, but othei classes of undesirable men were safe The poli ce could do nothing moie than to watch them in the hope of catching them in the act of violat ing some law, when they could be brought into court upon a specific charge Recently the Chicago city council passed a vagiancy ordinance, which -vs. ill go into effect Jan 1, and the police are determined to enforce the law and rid the city of undesir able characters Police officials in all the smaller cities expect that the crooks who are driven out of Chicago will look for refuge in these cities, and the police are preparing to begin a crusade against them. Chief Conroy expects that among those driven out of Chi cago will be some of the most desper ate crooks m the country, and he is determined that they shall not take up a residence m Minneapolis.

Mayor Smith of St. Paul Voices Sen- timents of Association in Favor of Higher SalariesPresident North- rop's Strong TalkOutline of Ad- dress by President Mclntyre of the Association^ Ideas of value to the large body of educators present at this morning's session of the Minnesota Educational association, in the Central Presby terian church, St Paul, came thick and fas t. Mayor Robert Smith of St. Paul sounded a note that met a prompt response in his indorsement of better pay for teachers. President Northrop indorsed the higher salary idea and then iirgecL an investigation o the complaints against the high school system, with these as starters, and President Mclntyre's pithy ad dress those in attendance had much to think of. The opening exercises of the first gen eral session showed** an attendance which indicated plainly that the con vention of 1903 would set a new rec ord, the mam. floor of the Cential Presbyterian church being crowded. A song by the Schoolmasters' Glee club, led by Professor C. H . Congdon, opened the program, and Rev. John M. Fnlto, D . X , offered the invoca tion. Mayor Smith's Hit. Mayor Robert Smith ingratiated himself with his audience by his declaration in his address of welcome that he had a long-established convic tion that the cities and counties of the state did not pay adequate sal aries to qualified teachers. The marked difference between the sal aries of public officials and those of presidents or professors of colleges and universities was pronounced a rank injustice. The only remedy seen by the speaker was to impress legis lators and politicians that teachers, as a body, were important factors m managing the affairs of the country. Judge Jaggard gave an impromptu address of welcome, representing T. P . Smith, president of the Commercial club and O. E . Holman, president of the board of education of St. Paul. John W . Olsen in his response spoke in behalf of the rural schools. Dr. Northrop's Ideas. Dr. Cyrus Northrop's welcome bristled with practical ideas. H e de sired the schools to stand for good English, written or spoken. T o meet the criticism that high schools prepare for college, but do not fit for life, the president of the state university asked as a favor that the high school teach ers appoint a committee to meet m conference with a committee from the faculty to consider the justice of this criticism and to suggest remedies Dr. Northrop made an eloquent plea for compensation for teaching accord ing to its actual worth. H e also em phasized the need of more men in the profession. A Criticism Answered. S. J . Race answered Judge Jaggard's statement of the criticism of the busi ness world that the schools do not teach essentials by calling attention to the enormous demand made upon the schools and to the hindering influence of the home. The President's Address. Mr. Race presented the president, E E . Mclntire, as the mail to whom the great attendance was largely due. President Mclntvre Questioned whether the complaints as to high schools were supported by substantial facts. H e thought it should be ad mitted that the true mission of the high school might have been misun derstood in a measure, and that it might not be entirely in line with the demands of the times. I n the feeling of unrest towaids what is taking place in the educa tional field was found one of the most favorable indications of the times. "The schools do not lead," he said, "They are the attendants and hand maids of civilization. They are the servants of the common people, and their office is to uplift the masses.
