That is what Senator Hanna Calls Bryan's Salem State ments as to Trusts. Statement that Republicans Forcing Funds From Trusts Is Untrue. UNJUST CRITICISMS MADE REGARDING THE WORK OF JUDGE NOYES AND RECEIVER M'KENZIE. Seattle, Oct 10.—Among the recent arrivals from Nome is Leigh D. Bruckart, a young newspaper man wlio spent several months in the gold fields as correspondent for eastern news papers. Mr. Bruckart takes the po sition 'that a great deal of the criti cism that has been made against Judge Noyes and Receiver McKenzie is unjust. There are two sides to this contro versy, said he. I am personally ac quainted with Judge Noyes, and know that he was for days alter his arrival in the camp beset by representatives of 'the large mining companies who were eager to purchase his friendsnip. To my personal knowledge, one offer of -$200,000 for his decision was made him through an official of his court. The matter is still under investigation by the district attorney at Nome. Nothing tnat has been said by the representarivets of these mining com panies can shake my confidence :r. Judge Noyes' integrity. 1 am certain that he would never stoop to sell jus tice for any consideration. I am also personally acquainted with Receiver McKenzie, and can truthfully say that I believe I enjoy his confidence to a greater extent than any newspaper man who visited Nome this year. I believe he is thoroughly honest. I know that the stories that have been circulated to the effect that the claims he worked failed to pro duce up to the mark made under their original locators are untrue. It is a fact that can be proven that the claims Mr. McKenzie worked as receiver were operated more econom ically and yielded more gold than they ever did before. Stories to the effect that Mr. McKen zie was appointed receiver of the wihole Nome district are also untrue. As a matter of fact, he worked but two claims personally. Denies the Boosters Are Vigorous Statement of Chairman Hanna Regarding the Boy Orator's Wind. Chicago, Oct 9.—Chairman Hanna today made the following statement regarding Bryan's charge in his Salem speech that the republican campaign managers were collecting a huge cam paign fund from the trust magnates to buy votes and corrupt election offi cials: "I't 4s Bryan's cry of desper ation. He abandons all collateral is sues upon which he has made an effort to mlislead 'the American people. He forgets the dignity of the high office to which he aspires and lowers him self to make these infamous charges, His accusation is untrue. He knows it is unltrue, therefore the public can draw its own conclusions." TWENTY-EIGHTH YEAR. BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1900. FIVE CENTS WHAT HOYES SAYS. Judge Noyes Makes a Statement Re garding the Charges Put Forth Against Him. Allegations of the Lane Regarding the Nome Receivership. Shows up the Tissue of Falsehood In the Statements That Have Been Made. Minneapolis, Oct. it.—Some time ago through one of the San Francisco papers there was circulated the report that Judge A. H. Noyes, formerly of this city, but now district judge at Nome, has been reversed by Circuit Judge W. W. Morrow and that Alex ander McKenzife, a receiver appointed by Judge Noyes for certain valuable mining claims in litigation, had been removed. The story further statea that Judge Noyes had received his ap pointment largely through he inuu ence of Mr. McKenzie and his friends, and tne inference intended to be made was tnat Judge Noyes in appointing Mr. McKenzie as receiver, was not only paying a debt but was to be well paid for Mr. McKenzie's position. The story further said: The mortgage on Noyes' home was paid off. His current bills were paid anu his law library was expressed the name of Alexander McKenzie to Seattle by tne Northern Pacific Ex press, in boxing marked "Diamond D." McKenzie obtained half rates, as he has been at one time receiver of the Dakota division of the Northern Pacific railroad. The judicial party numbered twelve. McKenzie was the manager, cooking after transportation and notel accommodations. Minneapolis lawyers nave said that Judge Noyes was not in fact reversed. Mr. McKenzie has denied the charges and insinuations of the original story, and news has come that officers nave left Tacoma for Nome to arrest Mc Kenzie. There was also a statement from Nome that Judge Noyes was be lieved by the people of the city to be innocent of any of the expressed i.t implied charges, a few men who suf fered through the appointment of the receiver being the only ones dissent ing. One of these, it is said, is Mr. Braslan, formerly of the firm of No: tiirop, Braslan, Goodwin & Co., of this city. Now comes a statement from Nome that Mr. Braslan was the author ot the original story ami that it was because he was sore at the judge for not failing in wicn schemes of his (brdsian'sj. In the light of all this Judge Noyes' statement, the substance of which fol lows, will be of great interest to his friends in the northwest. "The harsh things said about me, understand, are the words of Braslan. 1 first knew Braslan several years ago, just mu him. He was a member tnen of the firm known as Nortbrup, Brasian & Co., seed dealers in Minne apolis. "I purchase#" No. 91 Highland ave nue in Minneapolis five or six years ago. A'c the time of the purchase there was a mortgage of .$t ,ooo on the house, and since tliac time 1 have from time to time made payments on the principal until tha amount was re duced to $3,5uo. I have not made a payment on the principal for over a year now. That mortgage is held ')y the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance company, whose agents for Miuneso-.u are R. M. Newport & Sons, St. Paul, and wiios-a local agc-n. at Minneapolis is George Odium. McKenzie never paid a dollar cn the mortgage on my house and I did not know that he knew there was a mortgage against the house. "I had no serious obligations and have not had for several years past outside of the amount due on my house. 1 did not pay my debts before leaving Minneapolis, as asserted by Braslan, but left a statement of the same in the hands or Edward Prendergast, my partner, at the time I was appointed, which statement he is at liberty to give to any one who may desire to ex amine the same. gave him the statement in ord.' that he might pav the same out of the moneys that were due him in Minneapolis on account of fees and in other ways. It is an absolute untruth that I am associated with Mr. McKenzie in a New York company. Indeed I do not know the name of the company that Mr. McKenzie is connected with. There was a corporation formed in Minneapolis and I subscribed for a certain amount of the stock. The corporation was interested in the min ing business generally and that Com pany, or some of its officers and agenrs are doing business in this country. My subscription to the stock was $40(1 or .$500, I have forgotten which, but as stated above, no part of it has ever been paid, and whether I have any in terest or entitled to any interest In he concern is very doubtful. That corporation was formed, however, long before I had the slightest expec tation that I should ever come to Alaska for any position. "As to the shipment of my library I will refer any one to Judge R. N. Stevens, who is thoroughly acquainted with the circumstances, in regard »c which I am under no possible obliga tions to Alex McKenzie. In regard to the railroad transportation or the transportation from Seattle to Nome, I did not need the assistance of Alex McKenzie or of any one else, and did not receive it. In regard to my pas sage from Seattle to Nome one com pany sent me an annual pass for my self and Mrs. Noyes, which I now hola, and several of the other companies offered IBC transportation if I should feel like coming up on one of their boats. I do not apprehend these var ious companies were under the con trol of McKenzie, but 1 leave that for you to investigate. "Braslan was sent out without doubt and is receiving compensation for the kind of work he is doing from the people who have from my first arrival persistently sought to annoy and embarrass in the conduct of busi ness that is very trying not only in its nature but in amount, and 'here in a new country, under new conditions, under a new code, and with such a di versity in the character of litigation^ I think I can safely say that I am up against about as hard a condition as it is. the fortune or misfortune of a man often to meet. "The statements in regard to the failed in that they have tried to in timidate me and failed -in that tney have slandered and libeled me here, and now have sent a man out to carry on the work on the outside. "The statement in regard to the order of the circuit court, contained in tae papers shown me, are just about as truthful as that made in re gard to myself, but regard to tne order, I do not care to say anything. I have no fear but what the circuit court of appeals will do me perfect justice, and that is all any man, and certainly all judges, can ask. A HANDSOME BUILDING. NEW NORTHERN PACIFIC DEPOT AT THIS PLACE WILL BE THE HANDSOMEST IN THE STATE. The new Northern Pacific depot at Bismarck will be the handsome* building of the kind in the sLate with out any exception. Workmen have begun upon the laying of the concrete in the pillars and walls, and an idea tan be obtained of what will be the appcarance of the wall when the struc ture is finished. The first of the concrete was laid in the pillars at the east end of the building. The con ere:e is laid between plank supports, in the center of the wall the concrete is of gravel, sand and cement, while cn the outer surface is a shell of con crete made from broken marble. This concrete is wedged in with the base of the wall so as to make a solid mass, 'ihe piers at the east end were par tially completed yesterday and last night workmen were busy finishing tl.j cuter surface of the wall. This is done with steel brushes, which re move all of the sand and cement from the external face, and leave only the white marble showing. Thus will be the entire exterior of the building, and the effect win be handBome and novel. Some experiments have also been made with the inner finish which will be similar to that of the outside except that the marble used is finer, and the. face will be polished until ii is smooth and uniform. The appear ance of the outside wall will be a mottled white. Architect Reed and Foreman Abbot are keeping close watch on the first woi-k, which is beiftg done. As soon S3 the pillars are completed the con crete will be lui 1 in the main walls ot the building. BEGS THE QUESTION. Bryan when Confronted with Secretary Meiklejohn's Letter, Begs the ^Question as Usual. Caught in Misstatements, He Attempts to Crawl out by Raising An other Question. Says the Constitution Doesn't Follow the Flag, Hence Slavery in Sulu Recognized. Dowagiac, Mich., Oct. 10.—Bryan today received Secretary Keiklejolin letter relative to the existence of slav ery in the Sulu archipelago, denying the president's responsiDility for the conditions described and Bryan replies saying the republican party with the approval of the administration, adopted the theory that the constitu tion does not follow the flag and therefore the thirteenth amendmeut does not interfere with slavery in Sulu. The Porto Kico law asserts the doc trine that the people oi Porto Rico are beyond the protection of the constitu tion and can be governed by the arbi trary and unrestrained power of the. president and congress. If the c-o. stitution itself can't reach the We.-: Indies, how can the thirteenth amend ment find its way across the Pacific into Asia. The president doesn't re pudiate article thirteen of the treaty giving full protection 'to the Sul. and his subjects in case of foreign in terference. The president's letter of acceptance declared it dangerous to agree to protect a Christian republic in tlhe 1-ailippines. Shouldn't it IJ wise for him to withdraw the agree ment to protect the Mohammedan sultan. INDIANA SURE. SENATOR FAIRBANKS SAYS I: DIANA IS SAFE FOR THE RE PUBLICANS. Renzlar, Ind., Oct 10.—The first stop out of Chicago by the Roosevelt train was at Hammond where the school children shook hands with the candidate who later spoke from a stand in the public park, telling a big crowd to compare conditions now and four years ago. in an interview Sen ator Fairbanks said Indiana was sure for McKinley, as he had been in per sonal contact with voters all over th. state, and knew whereof he spolc The senator is also confident of other states, having just returned from Pacific coast. He said the people were ready to vote tomorrow their ap proval of the administration. PLEASED. GOV. ROOSEVELT DELIGHTED WITH HIS RECEPTION AT ST. LOUIS. Chicago.

BRYAN" TO A MICHIGAN AUDIENCE. New Buffalo, Mich., Oot. 10.—Bryan began his tour of Michigan by being routed out of bed at Michigan Cir.y, Ind., to speak to several hundred at the depot, being introduced by an ex cited German democrat as James W.

Grafton, Oct. 10.—The most im portant will contest in the history of the state was commenced here yester day. Last February W. J. Musgrove, a young physician of this city, and one of the leading doctors in the state, made a will bequeathing substantially all his property, which is claimed to be large, to persons in no way related to him, excluding his relatives. It is claimed that his health was broken and his mind diseased and that he had been at sanitariums for treatment, the last one at Hudson, Wis., last July or August, and whilst there was found dead in Willow creek, near Hudson, under circumstances that pointed to suicide. It is claimed that lie had been at times much depressed and quite melancholy, and in many ways had acted strangely. Shortly after his death the will was found, and the executor named filed it in tlhe county court, claiming that the doctor was of sound mind and that no unfair means were made to induce liir.i to give his property to strangers, and that the disposition of his property is just and righteous. His relatives claim that nothing but the kindest feelings ever existed be tween the doctor and them, and that there was no reason why they should have been disinherits that he was o: unsound mind for a year or more, that he was made to do the bidding of others, and that the will was the result of insane delusions, restraint and un due influence, and they make tnis direct charge. A large array of law yers have been employed on bot'u sides. The legatees are represented by Maj. Fraine, assisted by Judge Templetou. of Grand Forks, and Ketdhell, Cohen & Shaw, of Minneapolis. The rela tives, fifteen in number, are repre sented by McLaughlin & Boyeson, of St. Paul, and Cochrane & Corliss, of Grand Forks. The interest is widespead. It is claimed that the trial will develop many strange circumstances. A mem orable legal battle may be confidently predicted. The hearing is set for Nov. 20. MISSIONS.
