PATTERSON, Attorney.' Register. SCHLANSER CASE, Fargo, Aug. 3.—The charge of man slaughter against Joseph Schlanser of this city, was taken up by Justice Ode gaard in his office at Moorhead Thurs day morning. The crime alleged to have been committed occurred in Moorhead on the night of July 17 last, between 10 a. m. and 11 o'clock. County Attorney Nye of Moorhead appeared for the state of Minnesota and Lieu tenant M. A. Hildreth of Pargo ap peared for the defendant Schlanser. The justice room was filled with wit nesses and others interested in the case. The first witness called by Mr. Nye was Dr. E. C. Wheeler of Fargo. The witness explained that he treated A. P. Carroll, the deceased. The latter went to him with the thumb of his left hand injured. It had on a surgical dressing which he understood was put on the night before. After a thorough examination witness sent the patient to St. John's hospital. The thumb was amputated at the first joint. Every precaution was taken and anti septics were used in the usual way. Soon after the operation the patient developed a state of high temperature which remained until his death, July 2 The wound was dressed twice a day. No troubles developed from the injured hand. The right arm swelled two days before Carroll's death. The patient did not compla'in of any pain. Mr. Nye asked the witness what was the cause of Carroll's death. The wit ness stated that to answer the question properly a scientific examination of the blood and secretions would have been necessary. Witness expressed the opinion that the deceased's vital resistant forces were not sufficient to withstand an ordinary infection. A low physical condition offers a seat for all sorts of diseases. In cross-examination by Mr. Hil dreth, Dr. Wheeler said the amputation was absolutely necessary. s^r Dr. L. W. Hyde of Moorhead was next called. He explained how Car roll was taken to his office on the night of the trouble. The injured thumb was wrapped in a handkerchief. Wit ness was aware he was treating a thumb which had been injured by be ing bitten. After examination wit ness told Carroll that the first joint of his thumb would have to be taken off. Carroll objected strenuously. Wit ness dressed the thumb with the great est care possible. His primary inten tion was to remove the first joint. General blood poisoning was the cause of the death, but to say what the real cause of blood poisoning was a search ing scientific examination of blood, etc., would be necessary. In answer to Mr. Hildreth, in cross-examination, Dr. Hyde said that, there were no indi cations that Carron was under the in fluence of liqnor. J. T. Smith was next called by Mr. Nye. He stated he was a resident of Moorhead. He saw the trouble on the night in question and identified the defendant Schlanser. He said it took place on the street in front of the Ar cade saloon. Witness was standing at the barn door near by. Several men were standing in front of the Ar cade. Schlanser came along and said "I ,can lick the whole outfit." Witness moved along to see the trouble. He was attacked by Schlanser. In a general scrimmage which followed witness got the best of Schlanser, but finally let go. Schlanser next attacked Pete Melby, but stopped when he was told he was fighting his friend. As soon as defendant quit fighting Melby he turned on Carroll, who was looking on. As Carroll was struck at he put out his left hand to ward off the blow. A short scrimmage followed soon after which Carroll started to run down the street. After he had gone part of a thumb was found on the ground. It was taken to the Arcade saloon and placed in alcohol and subsequently taken to Dr. Hdye's office. Witness said he saw Carroll later in Dr. Hyde's office. In answer to Mr. Hildreth, for the defense, witness said he had lived in Moorhead three years. He never looked for scraps, had never taken a drink of whisky in his life and had never drunk beer in Moorhead. When Schlanser hit at Carroll the latter ducked. He did not see them clinch. Witness did not know either of the men. After the row Schlanser and "Billy," who was with him, drove, away in a rig. In a short time they drove to the Arcade and after a short stay they drove away. Father Lemieux, of St. Mary's Cathe dral, Fargo, was next called. Witness -Y '-V "V -"i ~r Preliminary Hearing of Young Joe Schlanser for the Death of A. P. Carroll.

Serious Charge, Over Which Testi mony is Being Taken at Fargo and Moorhead. said he had known defendant for about six years. Carroll, the deceased, he met for the first time at the amputa tion. Deceased told witness that he had been in this country ten years, He had only been in Fargo a few months—that he had to leave his sem inary in France on account of ill health. After a talk witness admin istered the last rites of the church to Carroll whom he said dreaded death from the beginning. Deceased ex pressed to witness great sorrow that "this thing had happened." Would not like to prosecute as he considered it more or less his fault. Deceased told witness his version of the trouble and what led up to it. That it was his habit to take a long walk. He ex plained about a giri being knocked off a bicycle and how her father struck Schlanser. He acknowledged making the remark "served him right." He told witness that Schlanser was under the influence of liquor. TORTURING ASSASSIN. MURDERER OF KING HUMBERY UNDERGOES TORTURE TO MAKE HIM DISCLOSE ACCOMPLICES. London, Aug. U.—Advices from Milan say Bressi is confined in an iron straightjacket and tightly handcuffed. Blinding light, it is said, is flashed in to his eyes, preventing sleep. He is tortured in other ways not exceeding the limits of the law, to get him to con fess the names of his accomplices. The regicide remains indifferent, and re fuses to answer questions. SUSPENDED. Mandan, Aug. 2.—Constable J. C. Clark, whohas been the mainstay of the State Enforcement League at Man dan, has been suspended by order of the district court. Clark took posses sion of a quantity of personal prop erty under the prohibition law, and disposed of some of it—so it is alleged. This personal property should have been held by him until the court or dered it destroyed. Papers have been served on Clark, and the court has temporarily suspended him under the •provisions of section 33 of the code. The main case against him will be tried at the November term of court. In the meantime, he will not any longer be able to perfarm the functions of a constable, and it is an interesting question as to what he will do with the property that he holds as such officer. SUICIDE. Fargo, Aug. 2.—Mrs. W. L. Doe, of this city, committed suicide at the home of her parents in Lake Park, Minn., by shooting herself with a re volver. The weapon was placed to her breast and fired, the bullet going through her heart, causing instant death. Mrs. Doe went to Lake Park some time ago to visit her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. Glines. She had been in bad health for along time and as her condition did not improve as fast as she liked she got despondent and lost hope for her recovery. This is the only known cause for the deed. The deceased was 42 years of age and be sides her husband, who is connected with the Nichols and Sheppard com pany of this city, is survived by a son. THE SCHLANSER CASE. Fargo, Aug. 2.—Joseph Schlanser of this city appeared before Justice Ode gaard at Moorhead this morning to answer the charge of manslaughter, arising out of the death of A. P. Car roll, who died last week from the effects of having his thumb bitten off. On complaint of Mayor Aaker a war rant was issued yesterday i.or the ar rest of Schlanser, who is alleged to have done the biting in a street row at Moorhead about two weeks ago Schlanser, with his attorney, M. A Hildreth, appeared before the justice promptly on time and there was also present, County Attorney Nye of Clay county, Minn., who appeared for the state. The defendant pleaded not guilty. Attorney Hildreth asked for an immediate examination, but at the request of Mr. Nye a continuance was granted until tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. Schlanser gave personal bail. MORE TROUBLE. The Fargo Argus says: The state enforcement league is going after the blind pigs in Mandan and surrounding country once more. The piggers out there are getting so bold it is said that they are practically running wide open. Secretary Lindelie was out there for a few days last week collect ing evidence and now he is going into the warrant issuing business, at least he is going to swear out the warrants and see that the officers serve them and then the attorneys of the league are going to be on hand to do the pros ecuting. It promises to be a warm time out on the slope when they get to work. Prof. Thomas H. Norton of the uni versity of Cincinnati, who has recently been appointed to establish a United States consulate at Harput, Turkey, will have the honor of representing this country at its farthest inland con sulate. -^, X-V" ,v'"5"' ...

Twenty-Seven Anarchists Said to Have Sailed from New York, on Mis sion of Death. Bresci Claimed to Have Killed Hum bert Voluntarily, but Anarchists Are Glad of it. New York, Aug. 3.—Secret service men employed by the Italian govern ment claim to have discovered that twenty-seven anarchists sailed from this port within the last few days bound for France and Italy, and the agents believe the reds have ordered them to destroy all the monarchs in Europe. At a mass meeting at Bar tholin hall at Patterson last night, Pe dro Esteve, editor of an anarchist pub lication, who was one speaker, de clared Bresci had killed the king of his own free will but no one would cry. ANARCHIST. MAN WHO ATTACKED THE SHAH OF PERSIA BELONGS TO SPAN ISH ANARCHISTS. Paris, Aug. 3.—The examination of the man who attacked the Shah devel oped that his name was Salson. an an archist who disappeared from Paris in lS'.Ci. It is reported Salson has been associated with a Spanish anarchist group. Deputy Procurator Rem baud believes a widespread anarchist plot exists. The Shah says his assailant was a mad man. He attaches no im portance to the affair. TRAIN DERAILED. BOERS DERAIL A TRAIN IN SOUTH AFRICA AND SEVERAL PERSONS KILLED. London, Aug. 4.—Lord Roberts re ports a train derailed by the Boers yesterday, twenty miles south of Kroonstadt. Four were killed and three injured. American Consul Stowe was aboard but escaped. Lord Algernon Lenox and forty men were also aboard and captured by the Boers. At the request of Stowe the soldiers were liberated but Lenox held as a prisoner. Roberts says Hunter re ports the total force surrendered 3,348. IMPROVING. Fargo, Aug. (i.—Edwin C. Van Hoe sen, the telegraph operator of the Van Dusen-Harrington Co., who at tempted suicide by shooting Friday afternoon, is so far recovered as to eat three meals a day, and walk to the table without difficulty. Save for •the bandages about his head there is nothing to indicate that he had been very near to death. The young man offers no explana tion of the desperate act, and it is likely that the motive will remain a mystery. Mr. Nichols still holds to the theory that Van Hoesen was suf fering from overwork and committed the act in a moment of temporary aberration. He had been offered a vacation, out reiused to take one un til later in the season. His recovery is looked for in a few days. SOUTH AFRICAN WAR. London, Aug. 3.—Gen. Hunter re ports the surrender of 750 more Boers.

RANCH BUILDINGS DESTROYED. Napoleon, Aug. 7—A large cattle shed, barn, granary, a stallion, SQme fence and other valuable property on the excellent DeLaney ranch twenty two miles east of Napoleon, was de stroyed by fire Sunday. The fire in some mysterious manner originated in the hallway of the horse barn in a bed of trampled hay, and the flames spread rapidly. Quite near to the north of the barn is stacked about 400 tons of hay, and tout for the fact that the wind was from a northerly direction at the time the hay would have also gone up in smoke. The ioss to DeLaney Bros, is about $1,500, and no insurance. W. L. Price, Who is working at the ranch, lost all his clothes. Mr. and Mrs. Brandt lost .most all their bed ding, of which they had a great and valuable quantity, and their clothing. To prevent the carrying of plague, Dr. Apery of Constantinople promises to kill rats on board ship by carbonic acid gas. The gas, being heavier than the air, would sink to the bot tom of the hold and there stifle the rodents. ., _T ~~y. •,£• Corn and potatoes, as well as late fodder crops, which were badly in need ot rain, were generally refreshed on the 4th and 5tli, but the yield will ,be liffht. &• WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN.
