Evidence Is Piling Up Against the
Self-Confessed Forgerjrf^f
Special to The Journal.
Mankato, Minn., May 22.A confer
ence is being held this afternoon by
George D. Eggabroad, representing the
relatives of Judge John B. Oglef the
confessed forger Hughes Brothers, rep
resenting Thomas O. Jones, and County
Attorney Wilson, with a view to effect
ing a settlement.
In case no agreement can be reached
Mr. Jones' attorneys will have a war
rant served for the arrest of Ogle.
Notes in the possession of Jones are
forgeries, as follows: "Wil
Schwanenberg, $1,000: W. A. Sny
der, $150 Jesse Shepard. $275 A. Lind
holm, $185 George Simmons, $160
Cynthia C. Davis, $200. These notes
were given.to Jones for money which
he had placed with Ogle to be loaned.
In addition, two mortgages for $800,
one given by George W. Bunce of Man
kato to Nellie G. Gilbert of Hennepin
county and assigned .fto Thomas O.
Jones, are under .suspicion. The first
note was assigned in Mayt 1000, and in
June of the same year an identical note
and mortgage were given the First Na
tional bank of, this city. One is a
forgery and a lawsuit will follow.
Mankato Shocked.
A dispatch to The Journal told
on Saturday of the" attempted sui
cide by drinking laudamim' of John
B. Ogle, former special judge of. the
municipal court. It was known that he
was heavily in debt and his act was at
tributed to despondency over his finan
cial embarrassments. The general pub
lic had no suspicion of anything worse.
But later sensational revelations were
to shock the entire city. George Ogle
of Chicago, a brother of the judge, was
summoned to Mankato, and to him the
desperate man confessed that he was a
forger and had attempted his life be
cause of the certainty of exposure.
Judge Ogle has .for years handled
End loaned money of certain clients.
Under pressure he admitted that he had
iven Thomas O. Jones of this city
notes in return for $7,000 placed
in his hands by Mr. Jones to be loaned
on good security as opportunity offered.'
Mr. Jones had given him from time to
time $9,000 to be loaned out, and only
one of the notes held by Jones is known
to be genuine. This one is for $600 and
was given by Ogle himself recently.
The remainder of the money was ob
tained in -1902 and 1903, and some of
the notes have been shown to be for
Widows Lose.
Judge Ogle also handled the surplus
money of seveval widows and has had
$5,000 of his wife's money. He is in
debted to Mankato banks to the extent
of $5,600 and owes, a bank at Winne
bago. Most of these. institutions claim,
to be protected. His debts and for*,
feries up to about $20,000. His
was small and his statement
that he used the money of his clients
to keep up his household expenses is
generally believed.
Last spring Ogle ran for municipal
judge, but was defeated in a campaign
that he says cost him $1,600. He lived
well and kept an automobile. He was
treasurer of the Methodist church, but
his accounts with it are said to be

County Attorney Wilson-'-says that all
claims against Ogle will be paid George

City man, is Ogle's brother-in-law and
is icoing over the books.
Some years ago Ogle created a sen
sation .by leaving the city at the same
time his'handsome stenographer did, but
he returned some months later and his
life since' has been above reproach, and
none suspected that all was.not right.
His wife is prostrated by his disgrace.

Special to The Journal.
Shell Bock, Iowa, May 22.This
town may be placed in the control of
armed deputies by order of the state
authorities in order to enforce the quar
antine laws. The state board of health)
insists that there is an epidemic of scar
let fever here, while the local health
authorities, school board and citizens
say there is not.
Dr. F. W. Powers of Waterloo and
Dr. A. M. Linn of Des Moines, who
were sent here by the state board of
health to investigate, pronounced the
disease scarlet fever, which incensed
the citizens, and as a result of threats
the physicians left town at night, fear
ing violence. Dr. C. P. Thompson, a lo
cal physician, who agreed with them,
was nanged in effigy.
Dr. W. H. Smith, who placed quar
antine signs on several houses, was
threatened with violence, and the signs
were torn down within ten minutes aft
er they were put up. The school board
asserts that it will prevent the fumi
gation of the school buildings by phy
sical force if necessary.
There are several cases of the disease.
A difference of opinion between doctors
has resulted in the town being divided
into factions, the majority standing by
a pioneer physician, who insists it is
not scarlet fever. The state authori

Iowa Farmer-Inventor Promises
to Revolutionize Construc
tion of Vessels.
New York Sun Speoial Servico. *if-
New York, May 22.A muscular
farmer from North McGregor, Iowa, ar
rived here a month ago and has al
ready convinced a group of capitalists
that his principles for building every
variety of vessels that travel the water
will revolutionize the construction of
launches, ships and war vessels. He
claims that it constructed according to
his plans, high-power naphtha launches
will attain a speed of thirty-five miles
an hour and torpedoboat destroyers
with 8,000 horsepower and the or
dinary displacement will be able -to
^make* at least fifty-five miles *BT h&ir.
This farmefiifcventor is Williain B.
Motherall. Tho he has received scarce
ly a year's actual schooling in his life,
he has always been an assiduous student
of higher mathematics. He conceived
tho idea of supplying a cushion of air
for the boat to travel on.
He mortgaged his. farm and built a
vessel with air pipes leading from the'
top of the boat tp the bottom, all point
ing to the stern. He attached a force
pump to the engine and drove air thru
apertures. When he has attained a
speed of nine miles an hour he was sur
prised to find ishat the pump was not
needed, but that air was sucked from
the top of--the launch underneath the
bottom. He found' that the launch
fairly skimmed,over,Jhe water.
'''My-launch is thirty-four .feeVlong
and six feet wide says Motherall,
"and with a seven-horsepower engine
and two men in her will have 1,500
pounds displacement. She will make
sixteen to twenty miles an hour. An
ordinary speed launch with seven
horsepower engine makes eight and a
half to twelve miles. With fourteen.,
horsepower in my boat.I will make at
least twenty-six miles, and with twenty
four at least thirty-five miles.
''My principles can be applied to
warships and to any other seagoing ves
sels. Torpedoboat destroyers could
make sixty miles, an hour and run on
two-feet of water."

N ew York, .May 22.The question"'of
tips in New York .is exciting much dis
cussion among visitors in the metropolis.
Perhaps the most aggressive tip-hater is
Edward Bok, editor of the Ladies'
Homfr Journal. He has turned the grasp
ing hotel- employee on his spit in the
Philadelphia publication from time to
time, but his latest outburst dresses
down the metropolis and its residents in
one-of its own publications. He says:
The custom of tipping servants and
other employees- is rapidly spreading from
New York to other parts of the country.
It is becoming a serious nuisance. It is
simply a form of graft. There can "be
no doubt of its increasing evils, due to
the cruelly blatant position which money
holds In New York.
It is the influence of the newly rich in
New York, that is exaggerating the tip
ping nuisance so that it threatens to be
come a national plague. New York is the
worst of all American cities in that re
spect. It is the center and exemplar -of
senseless and vulgar extravagance.
It* is all well enough to talk about

The Fern, was built at New York in
1871 for service.as buoy-tender on the
Pacific coast, by Delamater & Stack, at
a cost of $84,750. She is a propeller 160
feet long, .with 28-foot beam, 10-foot
draft and a tonnage of 548. She has
two masts the mainmast,., with a fore
and aft rig with a gaff topsail, arid thei
foremast .square-rigged.
Upon completion the Fern was sent
around the Horn to San Francisco,
where she arrived March 29, 1872,
ninety-one days out. Owing to the

is a bribe by which one person hopes to
get better service than another. In many
cases It 1 pure blackmail.

to bring her back to the Atlantic coast,
and she sailed from San Francisco Oct.
18, 1872, arriving at New York Jan. 16,
1873, making the passage in ninety days.
Up to the time of her transfer to the
navy -department, early in 1891. she
was used as a supply vessel for the light
houses along the-Atlantic and gulf
In making the transfer from the jur
isdiction of the treasury department to
that of the navy department, a sort of
a Yankee bargain was struck. In the
latter part of 1890^ the Fern was kept
afloat by "her paint and putty," ac
cording to officers of the lighthouse
service, and she was offered to the navy.
The latter department was shy a supply
vessel, and took her on the basis of a
valuation of $30,000, which was really
that of the machinery alone, the hull
not being considered. In return, the
lighthouse service was given a lot of
chain which the navy didn't need, and
bargain, and nobody made any kick,
altho no money passed between them.
The transfer was effected in February,
1891, and the Fern was placed on the
navy register, where she has remained
ever since.
Upon the conclusion of her service in
the Spanish war the navy department
found that it had so many better- ships
on its hands.- that th Fern was lai up
at the Washington1-e

Washington, May 22.The United
States will play its spring war game in
the neighborhood of Washington aWd
Balimore, beginning June 10. The ex
treme care that is being taken to guard
the plans of the "campaign" might
lead to the impression that there is
to be a touch or the real thing. News
papers applying for the privilege of
putting representatives aboard the
ships that will participate in the sea
attack are informed that the manoeuvres
are not any part of the public's busi
The "battle Bcheme," as it appears
on paper, assumes that the cities of Bal
timore and Washington are to be at
tacked by a foreign foe. This imagin
ary enemy, hailing from the shores of
Europe, is to come up thru the Carib
bean sea by stealth, escape the scouts
of Uncle Sam on duty between Cuba
and Porto Bico, and entering Chesa
peake bay,, menace the national capital
and the great commercial city of Bal
Huge Sums for Land Defense.
Since the Spanish-American war,
when the timid-hearted feared Spain
xjnited State has been spendinigy annually enormous sums of mone
land defeases for these cities. Within
the last five years most the defenses
on which Baltimore, Washingto'tf, Phil
adelphia, New York and Boston would
depend in case of actual war have bei i
greatly strengthened, and this spring
game is to afford the coast artillery
arm of the army opportunity to prove
that it can prevent a hostile fleet from
approaching either Baltimore or Wash
ington and doiWg great damage.
The prospective game warms the
blood of officers and men in both army
and navy. Neither side knows except
in a general way what the other side is
planning to do. It is known that there
may be a naval attack on both cities.
The approach to Baltimore is to be de-
feWded by 1,800 men of the coast artil
lery stationed at the forts guarding the
to man the land defenses of the na
tional capital, scattered along the Po
tomac .river. Admiral Dewey will be
on hand to see how the
foreign foe,"
composed of many of the best fighting
ships of the navy, acquits itself, and the
officers of the geh'eral staff of the army
will keep careful watch over the sol
diers who are expected to save the two
Navy May Help Army.
If the navy can demonstrate that the
land defenses are inefficient the army
will be in a position to appeal to con
gress for more money with which to
equip fortifications that can block the
pasage of a hostile fleet.
All the modern appliances of war will
be brought into play. In order that no
ship of war may stateak up the Potomac
or the Chesapeake under cover of night,
powerful searchlights will stand as sen
tinels over the two streams every
night while the "game" is on.
Wireless telegraphy will do its part,
too. Only recently a complete wireless
system has been installed along the
coast, and the experts are anxioiw to
see how it will behave in the face of
the approaching hostile fleet,
circles the talk is that
the^army will have the difficult en
of the "problem." It will not have
any foreknowledge of the plan of cam
paign of the "hostile fleet." I will
not know, unless it ascertains it thru
agencies at its own command, whether
the ''foreign foe" plans to attack both
Baltimore and Washington, or whether
the other.
Blow Fleet Out of Water.
.The general instructions to the officers
the other cities while moving against
it plans to make a feint against one of
in command of the coast -defenses wiU
be to detect the approach of the enemy
and then "blow it out of the water
The general staff is very confident that
the '/enemy" cannot pass the defenses
on either river or bay undetected, and
.is just as confident that with the new
guns place it will be possible to send
to the bottom every ship that under
takes to run the fortifications.
It is no haphazard game of war. The
general staff of the army has been at
work tin the plans for the campaign of
defense^ for months, and no detail has
been omitted in the sceme as it appears
on paper. Likewise the navy has been
vising Its ablest strategists in plartoinp
to attack the two cities.

More Deputies and Police.
To cope with the situation growing
out of the spread of the strike, Sher
iff Barrett today be#an to add to his
large force of deputies.
The police force also will be aug
mented. A call for 200 more patrol
men for strike duty was made by Chief
O'Neill today.
"Arrest every manwhite or black
who is found carrying a concealed
weapon,'' was the order given to all
olice. A systematic search was imme
commenced for armed men. One
of the first arrests was htat of Mat
thew White, colored, said to be a
strikebreaker. He was fined $150the
maximum. The magistrate announced
an intention to inflict the maximum
fine on every offender arrested.
Troops Ready for Call.
Mayor Dunne was in communication
with Governor Deneen by long-distance
telephone. Governor Deneen assured
the mayor that the national guard
would be available inside of two nours
after a call was made.
The mayor realized that a call might
have to be made at any time, not per
haps because of violence, but because
of the territory that the affected in
dustries covered.
The mayor and the sheriff agree that
it would be impossible for the city po
lice department "or the sheriff's office
adequately to protect traffic if the
wood-industries trouble involved firms
all over the city.

had attacked Michael Fitzgerald, a spe

assailants and shot and probably fatally
wounded Frank Voelker, 22 years old.
Fitzgerald was on his way to his resi
dence when he was assaulted by Voelker
and nearly a dozen other men. It is
said they taunted the deputy Bheriff and
struck at him. Fitzgerald tried to get
away and finally fired in self-defense.
Voelker was taken to the hospital.
He is a union pressfeeder. When he
fell his companions ran away. Fitzr
