''i *. A "if P.i f&i ,ff! Jf "H a Letter From Senator Uotlge Endors ing Its Work and Promising Support. NOTHING TO BE CONCEALED Secretary llart Says a Full Report Will Be Made to the Legislature and the Public. ST. PAUL, DCC. 28.—A few of the Pine City people still continue their attacks on the members of the state re lief commission. In the last issue of the Rush City Post the editor of that paper says that Senator-elect F. A. Hodge "was very enthusiastic over the stand taken by The Post." He then goes on to snow by the census that there were in all 1,600 people in Pine. Mille Lacs, Carlton and Otter Tail counties entitled to relief, whereas the commission states that 2,000 people •were given aid. Secretary Hart of tLe state relief commission spoke of these charges and in relation to Senator-elect Hodge's at titude handed the reporter this letter: Senator Hotlgti's Letter. '•Pine City, Minn., Dec. IS, 1894.— Hon. H. H. Hurt, Secretary State Re lief Commission—Dear Sir: I :ve •just received your favor of the 16th inst., asking 'whether in my judgment the people of this county approve in general of the work of the tire relief commission so far as it lias gone, and will endorse it to the legislature.' I hasten to answer and say to you that in my opinion the people of this county will approve the work of youi sion and endorse it to the le and that my opinion may be taken for what it is worth, it is but fair for me to say that since the middle of Septem ber I have had but little personal knowledge of the work. That of those conversant with the matter with whom I have talked, some have shown a dis position to criticise and find fault, but by far the larger number, and those in •whose judgment and fairness I have the most confidence, Have Given It Their Approval. and that this opinion is based on the confidence I have that the report your commission submits will indidate that it has executed its trust in a manner worthy of the distinguished gentlemen constituting its membership, and the knowledge I have of the good sense, kind hearts and fair judgment of the citizens of this county and the deep sense of gratitude felt toward those who have so generously contributed to their relief. The prompt and wise ac tion of Governor Nelson in selecting this commission is universally com mended. It is well understood that the high standing of the gentlemen composing it commanded the confi dence of all, and this increased by thousands of dollars the amount of contributions. I understand that the plan pursued by the commission in dis tribution of funds in their hands was approved by a large majority of the donors, and I know that the members of the commission in accepting this trust and generously giving their val uable time to its execution, must have been actuated by the kindest and most charitable motives, and I presume ex pected their most satisfactory reward in the approval of their consciences. I trust they will continue the work in the same spirit, and I cannot doubt the legislature will approve their work and reimburse them for the funds they have so generously advanced. Yours very truly, FHED A. HODGE." The Number Kelieved. "The state commission," added Mr. Hart, "will make a full report of its doings. The commirsion has nothing to conceal, and its doings will be given to the legislature and to the public. The commission has no exact number of people registered at Duluth, Pine City and Hinckley, but I understand it is something over 'Z,000 people, which includes some people who did not live in the district burned over at the time of the fire, but who were dependent on those who did live there and so lost their means of subsistence. irrtEARY WOULD ACCEPT. The Second District Congressman Willing to Tttktt Washburn's WASHINGTON, Dec. 28.—Congressman McL'leary may be prevailed upon by friends in Minnesota to U.'i'Dms a can didate for senatorial honors. He ad mitted that he was seriously consider ing the matter of allowing his friends to enter liim in the race. Said he: "I am urged by friends in Minnesota 'i permit the use of my name. Many •Uers havo come to me from members the legislature offering their sup port, if I desired it. If the legislature should honor me with the election I could hardly be expected to decline it. On the contrary should accept it. AVIether or not I shall make an active canvass for the place remains to be seen." Train Striken an Omnibus. GREEN BAY, Wis., Dec. 2«.—An om nibus containing young men was struck by a Milwaukee and Northern passenger train as it was pulling into the yard of that company in the south ern part of the city, severely injuring* six of them and bruising the others quite severely. Two of the injured may die. Miners Injured. OTTUMWA, la., Dec. .Victor John son and Frank Phillips, miners, were perhaps fatally burned in the Foster coal mine by the explosion of a keg of powder. One of_ the men .was carrying the open keg of powder and a small 1 pleco of slato fell and knocked a spark from his lamp iuto the powder explod ing it. A GKKAT STRIKE. Shoemakers at Haverhill Want Their Old WaKCH liestorud. HAVERHILL, Mass., Deo. 28.—With $0 por cent of the shoo workers of this city earning less than $7 a week, tho International Labor union made de mand on tho manufacturers that they should restore the prices that existed bo fore tho panic ot' 1802, tho shoo industry at the present time being at its height. The machine 1 asters were called out, but no compromise could be effected. Locke.I Out Workmen. The affair culminated when W. W. Spaulding, the largest mrnufaoturer of the city, looked out all his turner work men, because they attended the laboi rally. Tho strikers and locked out men formed a parade and marched to the shoe district, where the womeu stitch ers at Spaulding's quit work, and they joined in the demand for more wages, as well as in the parade. The strikers declare that the present fight is to establish a uuiform list of prices, and in this, although they havo only grievances against a few manu facturers, all the shoe factories will be concerned. Thousands Were in Line. "While a $50,000 conflagration was raging, the fourth parade of tho day was formed and headed for the firo lines. It contained 400 men, but was increased by as many thousands when it reached the hall. Here inflammatory speeches were delivered by the labor leaders, and Armenians, Polish, He brew and French anarchists, who urged tho men to come out and join the strikers. The line of the parade was ablaze with fireworks and was headed by a band. Will Affect Sis Thousand. The general strike will not be ordered eoniniis- until afternoon, and the manufacturers islature, have until noon to restore tlie former price list. The strike will affect nearly 6,000 men and women, who claim that no compromise will be accepted, but that the fight will be to the end. A contract system now in vogue in the larger factories, which keeps tho for eign element down, must bo broken, say the men, or it will extend throughout the shoo world. Iowa Miners Destitute. CEDAR RAPIDS, la., Dec. 28.—There is absolute destitution and suffering among many families of the laboring people of Centreville at the present time. The short work in the mines and the lack of work on the outside is the cause of this state of affairs. Only the mild weather has prevented great suffering, The people of the city are now making an effort to form an or ganization for the purpose of providing for the needy in a systematic manner. CACSES MITCH COMMENT. Many Catholics at £an Claire Come Under the Kan as Knights of Pythias. EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Dec. 28.—-A dozen of the principal members of the Catholic church here recently joined the Knights of Pythias and there was a general movement of Catholics toward' that order. The pope's decree of inhibition is a bombshell here. It will be read in the Catholie churches next Sunday. Father Dunne, pastor of St. Patrick's church, said: "I am a little surprised, as I did not expect the interdiction would extend so far." A leading Catholic who has just joined the knights said: "We shall be in no hurry to leave the order. We think the decree is a mistake, and there are high church dignitaries like Archbishop Ireland who have advo cated the very thing we have done, in joining the knights. It is trne that yon can never make anything but Catholics out of us who have become Knights of Pythias but while we are Catholics we are Americans, too, though of course membership in the Knights of Pylhias has nothing to do with that. What we expect is that the decree will be reconsidered. A FAMILY POISONKD. Ate Headcheese Moiled in a Copper Kettle. om« May Die. RACINE, Wis., Dec. 28.—The family of Beruhard Solbreiter, composed of nine persons, were dangerously pois oned 1 or the second time within three days. The first poisoning was attrib uted to .to arsenic poisoning in the food. I An investigation by a physician in the second instance revealed that it was caused by the family eating headcheese that had teen boiled in a copper kettle, Some of them are in a dangerous con 1 dition.

He was an old soldier and worked in tho Elson Glass factory. He had started to walk homo from here and was caught in tho store. Principal Feature pf tho Present Spell of Weather From the Bureau Point of View. WORST IN EASTERN STATES. Telegraph and Telephone Scrvicc Badly Crippled and Railroad Traffic Delayed. WASHINGTON, Doc. 28.—From a weather bureau view, the chief charac teristic of the present storm has been tho rapidity of its development and movoment, this result being largely duo to a 1 arometric pressue in Montana of 31.2 inches, tho highest recorded by the weather bureau. It was colder in the vicinity of Washington, and by night it is expected that the storm will havo moved to Maine and the St. Law rence, leaving snow and slush behind. Rain or snow has fallen generally east of the Mississippi, whilo from west of that river cold weather and high winds are advancing. Bismarck, N. D., leads tho cold weather stations with 24 below, and it is 10 below at many points in the far Northwest. Storm signals are displayed all along the Atlantic and Gulf coast. Damage to shipping is feared, as tho wind's ve locity will range l'roai 40 to 70 miles an hour. HIT GOTHAM HARD. Traille in the Metropolis Nearly I'aralyzed by the Storm. Nr.w YORK, D^c. as.— At O p. m. snow comm.. need to fall, the wind then blowing a gale from the northeast. Tho velocity of the wind increased nutil at midnight a hurricane was blowing, with the snow falling thickly. The North ard East rivers were wrapped in a cloud of the driving snow and objects were invisible ou tho water at a distance of not moro than a few yards. The various ferryboats had considerable difficulty in making tlieir piers, but no casualties are re ported. From an early hour the snow plows on the Broadway and Third avenue cable lines were at work and kept the tracks fairly clear. The traffic on Broadway was not interrupted, but the drifts caused a block ou the Third ave nue road. The shipping in the East river received the brunt of the storm, but no accidents are reported. The elevated roads were kept clear with some difficulty and secured a great number of passengers from the cable lines. Down at Quarantine the full forco of the chill blast was felt. The Bky be came overcast at sundown, and the wind, which had been blowing gently from the east all the afternoon, sud denly veered to the northeast, increased in velocity and brought the snow with it, At 9 p. m. it was swirling down the narrows with a speed of 60 miles an hour. The snow came in great thick clouds. WIRES AUE DOWN. Great Damage to Telegraph and Tele phone Wire* In the Eait. PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 28.—Tho sleet storm, which followed the heavy fall of snow, appears to havo wrought the most damage to telegraph and tele-' piione circuits within a radius of 50 miles of this city. The Western Union and Postal Telegraph companies are badly crippled on every circuit. .South ern New Jersey is cut off entirely. The Long Distance Telephone company has 51 poles down in Camden alone, and outside of that city the situation is just as bad. While the storm is severe at Delaware Breakwater no shipping dis aster is reported. The only damage to shipping in this harbor was that caused by a few vessels dragging their anchor, and banking against the wharves. Snow ranging in depth from 4 to 18 inches covers Pennsylvania and many localities report it as still coming do\vu. COLD IN THE NORTHWEST. Mercury Jrup to 30 Itclotv in Many I.n\ilit ICS. ST. PATT, Dec. as.—Reports from many points in .Minnesota aud North Dakota show that the cold wave pre vailing the previous day in the Cana dian Northwest has arrived, aud 20 degs. below zero is registered at many points, with promises of a still further drop. No moderation of the weather is promised for a day or two. Heaviest Know In Years. PITTSBCKO, Dec. 2*.—Thesnowstorm which started in the evening proved to be the heaviest- that has been known here for several years. Up 10 o'clock a. m. U' incites of snow had fallen aud it is still snowing. Tho trains on all roads are delayed and tlii.ro is much doubt whother the Eastern traius will be ablo to get over the mountains. Kentucky Gi-M It. LOUISVILLE, Dec. as.—This city is experiencing tho heaviest snow storm that has visited this section for years. The snow began falling about a. m. and has continued incessantly ever since. It is estimated that fully 10 inches have fallen. Street car traffic is greatly impeded, some of the lines hav ing been compelled to abandon their service entirely. Dinner for Newsboy*. MI.VNEAI'OLW, Deo. 27—Frank H. Peavey. president of the Peavey Ele vator company, entertained over 200 newsboys to dinner. St MEXICO'S SECRET POLICE. A 8y»teni Moro Complete Even Than That of the French Republic, "The secret service of tho French re public is generally considered the most perfect spy system in the world," said traveling man to a writer for the Washington JStar, "but in my humble opinion the department of pri vate intelligence supported by Mexico surpasses it both in extent and in tricacy. A couple of years ago I was accidentally permitted to got an in sight iuto its workings, and I was astounded. One would imagine that a great private detective agency would be a necessity only in a country like Russia, where tho life of the ruler is constantly threatened, but down in Mexico there is a system of espionage that extends to every part of it. The motives of every public man in Mexico lire not only perfectly well known to tho government, but every visitor is subject to scrutiny. It was President Diaz who lirst established the chain of secrecy that now holds all tho people in its links. Every now and then ono will be surprised to see a body of Mex ican troops hurried oil" to some remoto place in a far-off state. IS*one will know the reason, but the fact will soon become known that the govern ment lias prevented an embryo revolu tion from gaining strength and forco. A considerable number of Americans residing in Mexico do so because the law will make it unpleasant for them in their native places. Tlic Mexican secret service has the private record of each of these, and if any of them shows too much activity in Mexican aii'airs there is an arrest, the United States authorities are )*)tilied a:ul extra dition of the prisoner follows. Such a ease occurred only a few days aj-o. A man named Ji.hn Hurley has been re siding in Monterey for several years, and is prominent.. Some time e^o he took a rnvat interest in having Sutler, who was v. an tod in Austin, extradited. Last week llcrley was sirrc.sted under order sent from Mexico City. It turns out that liorloy did something1 out in this country twelve years ago, and is still wanted to answer the charge. Yes, .sir, the Mexican :^~ret cc-rviec is the greatest of them a :. ad its rami fications extend every v. hero over the republic, and a good ways on this side of the border." TURNED THE DAGGER'S POINT. A Corset Saveff tho Life of a Woman from an Indignant Wife. Strong-minded ladies raise their voices periodically against the wearing of the corset, descant on tho evils of tight lacing and claim that the female form divine ought not to be cramped in whalebone and tho usual accompani ments, says a Taris letter to the Lon don Telegraph. Apart, however, from the dictates of fashion the much maligned stays may sometimes serve a very useful purpose, as the following1 story will show: The wife of a civil of ficial discovered in a drawer in her husband's study a certain document which had no connection with the af fairs of state. On the contrary, it was rather a flighty missive, for, indited in a feminine hand, it bade the gentle man in question to a reqdezvous on the morrow. The lady remembered that her husband had absented himself from the domestic hearth at the precise hour named in the note, and boiling over with fury and indignation, she donned her bonnet and mantle and hurried oflf to the house of the writer, who is also a married woman. The two families, it should be added, were on very inti mate 'terms. There were some verbal interchanges, which had not the effect of calming tho irate wife, who, whip ping out a small dagger, struck two blows with all her might at the lady's breast. In each case, however, the dagger glanced off the corset, inflict ing only trifling injuries. Loud screams brought the servants to the spot and soon the indignant wife, who in the meantime had had a violent lit of hys terics, was being conducted in her own carriage to his office by the police com missar}'. Some hours afterward she was set at liberty, as the la.'.y whom she had attacked had, with her hus band, decided that no complaint should be lodged on account of the gossip to which the affair would inevitably have given rise. But for the pro tection afforded by the stays the adven ture would probably have terminated in a very tragic manner. COLOR AT THETAR NORTH. btMiw and Brilliant Color and Skict of Surpassing Loveliness. Frederick Wilbcrt Stokes, who was member of the first Peary Eelief expe dition, gives a new idea of the charms of arctic landscapes in a paper oa "Color at the Far North," which ho has written for the Century. Despite tho desolation, he found, from an artistic standpoint, a land of beauty, with seas and skies of surpassing loveliness. Tho intensity and brilliance of color im press the beholder as something super natural. Our sojourn was from tho middle of July, through August, and a few days of September —a period when the polar latitudes are teeming with animal, insect and plant life. Of this brief period only am I qualified to speak but from the accounts given by those who have passed through tho long, dreaded night season, the phe nomena oceuring in the heavens are most beautiful. The chief peculiarity of color at tho north, so far as my short experience tells me, is that there arc no semitones, the general cffect be ing either very black or just the oppo site, intensely brilliant and rich in color. In fact, a summer's midnight at the north has all the brilliance of our •brightest noon, with tho added inten sity and richness of our most vivid sun sets, while noon, when the sun is ob scured by threatening masses of storm clouds, is black. Indeed, it is the true land of "impressionism." I remember %ne brilliant morninjf jWhen the measureless ether over plead, a ,huo of. exquisite-blue, re- I peated itself in a pcrfect mirror of thd sea. Far away on tho otherwise clear cut horizon a l?»e oi pure white ice shimmered its light op through a pink 1 ish yellow stratum of mist, which bathed in delicate greenish blue an enormous iceberg that strongly re sembled an ancient cathedral. In the afternoon tho sky, a threatening black, overhung a vast contorted sheet of white and pink, composed of ice-floo and colossal bergs looming up above Its mass at intervals, with deep black patches of water, tho whole carrying the eyo to the horizon—a tapering band of deep rich blue merging into the sky. In the immediate foreground of tho ice-floe, near the water's edge, |were shallow pools of delicate blues, purples rnd greens. Of the wealth of color in flower, lichen and moss of its curious riches as manifested in insect, shell and ani mal life, and of its wonderful limning jskill as showa on the great inland ice, ice cap and glacier, I have neither purpose nor pen to write. This new world of color awaits the one who can truly describe it. In all these color 'effects at the north there lies a wizard like power of enchantment—a dis tinctive uncanniness that, basilisk like, both attracts and repels/ Great nature's pitilessness broods over it with a force and penetration possibly not equaled, and surely not surpassed, in any other quarter of our globe. It is a land of beautiful and awesome dreams. CLERGYMEN IN THE ARMY Uncle Sam's Chaplains and Their Regiments. They Aro C'ominlgnionod the Sumo as Offi cers and Arc (iovcrncd by Strict mili tary KpKu'.ations Not Iic iuircii to I'ighf. The United States army has thirty four chaplains, stationed" at forts all over the country. Seven of them, says the Chicago Times, are Ilaptists, nine arc Episcopalians, eleven are Metho dists, two are Presbyterians, one is a Congregationalism one is a Lutheran, one is a Christian, and two aro Catho lic priests. The question of denomina tion cuts no figure in this branch of the service. Appointments arc always made by favor, and without any regard whatever for the religious demands of soldiers and oGlcers. Four of the chap lains referred to are regimental chap lains, attached to the four colored reg iments, two of infantry and-two cav alry. Three of these men are negroes. The pay of a newly commissioned army chaplain is one thousand three hundred and fifty dollars a year, to which ten per cent, is added for each fivo years of service. lie has always the relative rank of a captain of infantry. After retirement he receives three fourths of the. pay of that rank. No age limit restricts appointments. A clergyman may enter the service at the age of sixty-three years and eleven months, re tiring a few days later with the rank and pay of a captain. It will be seen that a chaplain is actually much better off than to go through long years of service for slow promo tion. Like a captain he is entitled to commodious quarters at government expense, comprising five rooms. The chaplain in the army is not obliged to fight under any circum-' stances. lie has no arms. His uniform is a plain black frock coat, buttoned to the neck with nine buttons. It is pre scribed that the buttons shall be in front to button the garment up be hind would not be consistent with the regulations. This, with a black hat, serves for undress a nd full dress. The chaplain has charge of religious mat ters in general at the post where he is stationed. He enters in a book all mar\ riages, baptisms and funerals at which he officiates. An act of congress passed in 1838 created the office of "post chaplain and schoolmaster." The appointee was neither enlisted nor commissioned. The pay attached to the position was raised from time to time until it reached one hundred dollars a month, to which ra tions were added. In 1807 congress made the chaplains commissioned offi cers and gave them relative rank %s captains. They aro obliged to p&s£ only a physical examination, but it ia required that they shall be regularly ordained clergymen in good standing in their denominations. Every man on board of a modern war ship is supposed to be a lighter. Tho naval chaplain might be called upon by the commanding ollicer to pass am munition, or even to help in handling a gun. However, his duty would ordi narily be to aid the wounded. There arc two Catholic priests in tho navy. The sailors arc largely Catholic, many of them being Irish, French and Italians. A chaplain on board ship takes his meals with a wardroom mess. lie may say gracc before meat if the officer who happens to be caterer does not object. It is unfortunately a fact that chap lains as a rule are not very popular in tho navy. It is easily understood that a clergyman finds himself in rather an anomalous position among a lot of young officers in the wardroom. Some of them arc apt to be more or less ri bald, aud there is much of the merri ment in which a minister of the gospel cannot well join. The percentage of Catholics among sailors in the United States navy is growing rapidly less on account of tho policy which now prevails of enlisting Americans in preference to foreigners. A visitor on one of our warships is astonished to hear strange languages spoken by a majority of the bluejackets on lioard. A chapliiin may be dismissed from the army or navy like any other officer. Even the presidentof tho United States, however, cannot deprive him of his commission without a court-martial. As might be imagined, Uncle Sam's Chaplains have rarely got into trouble. One of them was permitted to resign a few years ago on account of immoral ity which tho secretary of war .thought it undesirable to advertise by holding an open court and publishing the facts in general orders fot the edification of the entiro service. mM TUB OLD-FASHIONED^fYLE E1" g»ves you & feeling of horror when you seo it and when you feel it.
