NEW ULM PETITIONS. Two Men Found Guilty of Selling Liquor to Minors and One for Keep ing a Blind Pig Must Serve 30-Day Terms in JailChristmas Is Cheer less. Violators of the liquor laws, no mat ter how severe a penalty has been im posed on them for minor offenses, can not appeal to the state board of par dons for mitigation of sentences un less there is question as to their guilt. This is the edict which went forth from the board of pardons at the capitol today as a result of a hearing on an appeal for clemency for certain New Ulm men. Two young men, Bern hard Fesenmaier and Peter Laway, saloonkeepers, pleaded guilty at New Ulm to selling liquor to minors. One had sold a glass of beer to a young man of 19, the other to a young man of 18 years. Paul Jauss, a veteran of the civil war who operates a little gTew eneral store at McCleary, just out of Ulm, was convicted of selling liquor without a license. All three cases were appealed to the pardon board on account of the severity of sentence. The new code is much more severe than the old law in its prescribed punish ment, making the minimum sentence $50 fine and an imprisonment of not less than thirty days. This minimum sentence was pronounced by Judge Olson of the district court. The fines were paid and the three men have been in jail for eight days. Everybody Signp Petition. Joseph A. Eckstein, a prominent at torney and citizen of New Ulm ap pealed to the board for clemency to the extent of releasing the three men that they might spend Christmas in their homes. A petition which -was started in New Ulm yesterday asking for the pardon of the three, was presented with 951 signatures including the mayor, who has established a record for his prosecu tion of violators of the "lid," the county commissioners, sheriff, and dep uty sheriff, county treasurer, auditor, city clerk, and other prominent citi zens. Eckstein told the pardon board that the general sentiment is th at the three -omen have already been more than suf-' ficiently punished for their wrong-do ing. I took the pardon board only a few moments, however, to rule that the three petitions for clemency must be denied. N Sympat hy Shown. Their ruling was plainly intimated in remarks each member of the board made the discussion by the New Ulm attorney. "It is barely possible," Edward T. Young, attorney general, re marked, "that a lengthy petition could have been secured asking that the men be kept in .iail." "Jauss, who ran the country store/' said Governor Johnson, "really was of keeping a blind pig. lived in a community, where his customers demanded that he keep a little beer, Teplied Mr. Eststein. "Well, he was evidently 'guilty of operating a, blindpjlg. said the gov ernor, and the attorney admitted the v point. poor families/ in most instances eac '2?niata&,daagreed Alans *inJi -P~ *~4i v**h ^%^^mWm Saturday Evening, THE%tOTteAlfett,I3 i JOURNAt,. COAL SUPPLY 0F.V iicirnumcitoM TWO WEEKS' HARD COAL AND A WEEK'S SOFT COAL HERE. r% i Consumers' Stocks of Fuel Are Large and There's No Menace of Coal Famine In MinneapolisDenial of 80- Oar Coal Train Report from Superior. There is no basis for a coal famine scare in Minneapolis. The supply on hand is sufficient for present needs. Tho the stocks now on hand are not largein fact, are smaller than usual at this time of yearthere is a safe mar gin in storage. A check-up of -the stocks in the city shows two weeks' supply of hard coal and a week's supply of soft coal on handr This is augmented by heavy supplies laid in by many con sumers. The rest of the winter's supply will come from the storage docks at lake ports and from the Illinois and Indiana mines, which ship here direct, all-rail. As long as one source of supply remains open, all will be yjjell. It is not prob able that either source will be cut off for more than a day or two at any time and it is not thought that there is more than one chance in a thousand of both being closed at the eame time.v As far as the northwest is concerned, little change is reported. Tho exact figures are not available, but it is esti mated that more than 2,000 cars have been started into the northwest since the cold weather set in and the cry for help came from northwestern villages and cities. Many points have received coal and there is still much in transit. It is still admitted that there must be no let up in service. Tho the crisis is believed to have been passed in most cases, a suitable coal freight service must be maintained to insure safety and comfort during the winter. N Eighty-Car Train. The report that a Great Northern eighty-car train was 'to be sent out from Superior, Wis., loaded with coal for North Dakota, the train to run on a passenger train schedule, is charac terized as extremely nonsensical by Superintendent of Transportation Bryan of the Great Northern. "We have been sending out coal trains from Superior to Minnesota, North and South Dakota -points for the past ten days as fast as they could be made up," said Mr. Bryan todav. I can't understand how that eighty-car story originated, as it is not practical to handle that many cars in one train, as there are few sidings long enough to accommodate such a train. Then, too, you can figure what a train of that number of loaded cars would weigh. Each of our cars loaded with coal weighs about fifty-five tons, and there would be no benefit to anyone to make up a train of eighty cars and hitch twq engines to it to haul the train to its destination. W have been rushing commercial coal out of Superior as fast as trains could be made up, and trains that were ready yesterday are on their way today.'' MURDER GLUE ERRONEOUS TWIN CITY POLICE OFFICERS FAIL TO IDENTIFY BULGARIANS AT TERRE HAUTE, IND. Christ Kotef and Athanes Christof, held at Terre Haute, Ind., on a charge of blackmailing Macedonians to gam money for promoting the Macedonian outrages in Europe, are not the slay ers of the six Macedonians who were found dead at 243 Tenth, avenue S last March. Detective Joseph Lawrence of Min neapolis, Seigeant Christian and Pa trolman Moohey of St. Paul arrived in Terre Haute early today and after seeing tha men decided that they were not the two suspects locked up at the Prior avenue St. Paul station on the night of the murder. This shatters the hope of an imme diate arrest of the Minneapolis mur derers, and the chain of mystery is as intact as it was on the flay the bodies were discovered. Police reports of other cities have been carefully wa'tched since the tragedy for such ar rests as the ones at Terre Haute, but nothing has been gained so far. Police Superintendent Doyle, altho disap pointed at the result, is certain that the murder here was only a part of the general plan of the Bulgarian band to gain money. The one man in America who knows how extensive these plans are is Con sul George Tsolomiti of Greece, who is now in Butte, Mont. was in Minne apolis several days ago and his actions after looking over the pejsnal prop er ty of the murdered men intimated that he had gained valuable informa tion. With Tsolomiti rests the chance of solving the mystery, and he is 'not yet ready to speak. will communicate with the authorities in Prespa, in the province of Monastiere. Turkey, and eventually the American, mysteries may be solved by international inquiry. RAMSEY'S REQUEST Delegation of Six Indorses Three Can didates for House Jobs.

They have the impression that the railroads threats are a good deal of a bluff. If the railroads thought they could overturn the order in the courts, they would no doubt appeal, but the commi^ion and the attorney general believe that the order will stand any test. I is made fliter a thoro investi gation, with every opportunity for the railroads to present their side of the case, and it is presumed that the order is reasonable. The burden of proof will be on the railroads to show the court that the OTder As Unreasonable and' confiscatory.

I is not improbable that the plan outlined in The Journal of allow ing block 40 to be chosen by default and then joining in a common fight against any further appropriations for a building may be adopted. this plan, the government will acquire block 40 at less than its value because cer tain interests are contributing heavily. fighting appropriations for a build ing on the block operation will be blocked-and the government after hold ing the propertv for some time can sell it at good profit. The government will make money, the commercial interests will have won their case, and nobody will be hurt but the interests contrib uting to bring block 40 inside the $350j000 appropriation which does not bind the government to build on the block selected. i Tho it is announced that a bill au thorizing the city to issue $500,000 in bonds for the purchase of block 38 may be introduced in the legislature some doubt is expressed concerning its passage by Feb. 15, the limit set by Secretary Shaw. KEENAN GETS LIMU FOR ATTEMPTED ASSAULT Judge Horace Dickinson of the Hennepin county bench went on record today as favoring the. death punish ment for criminals convicted of assault on women. expressed his advocacy of the doctrine advanced in President Roosevelt's recent message to congress, when he sentenced James Keenan, con victed of an attempted assault on a ^outh Minneapolis woman, to fifteen years in the penitentiary, expressing at the same time his advocacy of the death penalty in cases of assault. Under the Minnesota law, the maxi mum penalty which could be given Keenan was fifteen years' imprison ment, just half the sentence provided in cases where assault has been per petrated. Keenan admitted today that part of his evidence had been false. In passing sentence Judge Dickinson spoke of the enormity of the offense and the fact that under the law he could sentence Keenan to a term of only fifteen years in prison. I agree with the majority of good citizens ef the country that the crime of rape ought to be punishable by death," he said, as he imposed the maximum pen alty on the convicted man. .TDecemoer ^js, 1905, Choice. That certain department officials in Washington are trying to interfere in affairs pertaining to the selection of a postoffice site for Minneapolis is the charge of several leading members on the local committee working in behalf of block 38 at Nicollet and Washington avenues. The committee is hard at work and has already secured options on most of the pro'perty in the block. Another meeting will be held next Wednesday at which time the options will be thoroly reviewed and a plan of action decided on. The officials in question who are charged with trying to meddle with Minneapolis affairs are said to be trying to prejudice the effort of th,e commer cial interests of the city to secure block 38 and to_ favor block 40, the Windom block. Reports have been circulated that the Minneapolis interests are out to secure a mammoth and elaborate federal building covered with "ginger bread work" and pagodas. This is denied with vigor by the local com mittee. "All we want is a building as good as other cities of our class are receiving," says the committee. One of the exhibits prepared to show the advantages of block 38 and the dis advantages of block 40 is a map with a circle covering the retail, banking and .lobbing center/and carlines of the city. Where block 38 at Nicollet and Washington is well situated for distrib ution within this district and to the entire city as well, it is pointed out that block 40 is not only on the outer edge of the circle but offers poor facil ities for distribution. -3W* ^fi- Gift Gloves of every kind,1" lined and unlined, kid, Scotch wool, leather gauntlets, pair, from 50c to $7.50i Umbrellas and Canes, $1.00 to $20.00 GIFT BOXES with Ties, i^^ppQi?
