Kansas Supreme Court Considering
the Original Package Law
May be Declared Un
constitutional.
CAnar, Ohio., Oct. 2.-A bold train
robbery occurred this morning on the
Cincinnati, Sapdusky & Cleveland rail
way between here and Urbana. Imme
diately after the train left Urbana at 8:20
o'clock, two masked men with cocked
revolvets entered the express car and
compelled Adam's express messenger, A.
L. Scudder, to throw up his hands. They
then tied him securely, robbed the safe
of packages containing $500 and other
valuables, besides taking the messenger's
salary. While they were at work the
brakeman attempted to enter the car and
was shot at by the robbers. They gave
the alarm and the train was slowed up to
give an opportunity to capture the rob
bers; but they jumped from the train
just as it was entering West Liberty. One
of the robbers whom the other called
"Jack," tried to kill Scudder before leav
ing the car. Plaoing revolver at his head,
he pulled the trigger, but the cartridge
failed to explode. Theother robber then
prevented him from trying again. When
the train pulled out of West Liberty the
two scoundrels again got aboard, holding
the entire crew at bey. Scudder, who
had been released, opened fire on them
with apistol from his car door, but was
compelled to retrea. The robbers kept
on board until Bellefontaine was reached
when they again jumped off and disap
peared. OfOtfcers at Bellefontaine are
searching for them. Two arrests of sus
picious characters have been made.
The Original Package Law.
Topran, Ian., Oct. 2.-The argument
in the noted Riaheber habeas corpus cas .
the first test made of the Wij.on original
package law, has ben concluded. Peti
tionere? attorneys argued against the con
stitUtibnality of the new law and made
the point that if prohibitory law was not
operative as far as dealers in original
packages were concerned before the en
actmented the Wilson brll,ttnever was a
constitutional law and thisWilsonbill
cannot make a state law ef~ictiye in that
class of cases. Although no formal oepin
Ion was expressed by either Judge Foster
or 5$dge Phillips, who listened to the
arginmets in the case, both practically
adfiltdttiie tenability of the position
takes on tahi partcular and it isconceded
that even if the court decided the new
law to be constitutional, it cannot be ef
feotive until the legislature passes
another prohibitory measure. The case
is now under advisement.

Judge sawyer of the Majority Speeaks hi
Little Plaee. ij
Wsaisnieox, Oct. 2.-Judge Sawyer co
ot New York, on behalf of the majority is
of the committee that has been investi- ti(
gating the administration of affairs in the di
pension office, under Cooper's resolution, os
stated tonight to an Associated Press re
porter that he learned'with surphse that
the minority report of the result of the
investigation had been given out. He
was surprised because it was well under
stood by the committee that the evidence
was not all in and the investigation Iras c
not olosed. Taking up the allegations
in the minority report one by at
one, Judge Sawyer said there wps ei
not one of theStatements that he believed
was borne out by the evidence, incom
plete though it was. As to the hist of
stockholders the proof showed that Smy ay
ser alone subscribed for stock, and that p
othere interested with him made no sub- n
ecription. Wth regard to Bradley Tan- 0
ner, Commissioner Raum's private secre- q
tary, the evidence showed that at the out- fi
side he had only written four or ive let
ters on the Befrigerator company's busi
mess in pension office hours. His aeso
ciation with the District of Columbia eI
branch cofmpsry was purely nominal, his 4:
interest in it being one share, for whieb i
he had not pad a cent, add the company q
itself adnot yet been beought into ac- b
tive existence. Tanner'e promotiost was
shown by testimony to have been in ful
fillment of a promise to Commissioner
Raum's predecessor and had no connec- $
tion with this business. With this eoep
tion there was no evidence to sho- that
anybody employed in the pension office
was directly or indirectly the owner of
any etook in the Refrigerator company.
Proof on the contrary is directly the other
way. The majority had carelully analyz
edll the testimony with regard to favorit
ism to tIntitores and ba e reached a con
clusion from tentstJmona of Assistan
Commiasioner Lloeoln, five clerks and ei l
chiefs of divietns, as well as from other
personal knowledp. g -

The Wheat Investiaatono.
WAsoHINTon, Sept. 80.-The house
postmaster, Wheat, today made a state
ment before the committee investigating
the affairs of his office. He reiterated
his former statements to the effect that
he thought he was doing the proper
thing when he entered into a contract
with Culbertson. His last conversation
with ex-Postmaster Dalton led him to be
lieve this was proper. Dalton said the
contractor could afford topay him $150
per month. In fact, the general under
standing he obtained everywhere was to
the effect that this was an office per
quisite. Enloe asked witness if he was
engaged in lobbying In behalf of any
measures before the house. Wheat re
plied in effect that McGarrahan had
asked him for his (Wheat's) aid in get
ting his claim through congress. Witness
had replied to MGaatrahan certainly he
would be glad to aid him as he would
any one else. He spoke to a tew mem
bers he knew about the claim to accom
modate McGarrahan. He never saw
McGarrahan before he got his office, and
had never got a cent of money for speak
ing to members. He never did expect to
get anything except that McGarrahan
said he would do as much for him.
THE RAUM BUSINESS AGAIN.
Seckendorfr, New York Tribune cor
respondent, appeared before the Raum
investigating committee today. He said
he had consulted with persons who had
given him information respecting pen
lon office matters and as they were un- i
willing to have their names disclosed, he
felt compelled to decline to state them.
Major S. H. Clark of the Tribune Wash.
Ington bureau was called as a witness, a
but declined to give the name of any per- v
son who had given him information. a
Lewis, the minority member, said he t
wanted to report to the house what had
been learned before this congress ad
journed and the minority report has al
ready been drawn. The chairman said it
seemed impossible for the committee to
meet again as this was the last business
day of the session, but the committee
would stand adjourned, subject to call.
Cook City iatlroad Defeated.
WAsanuNoTo, Sept. 80.-Congressman t
Carter tried again today to secure con
sideration and passage of his bill granting
rightof way to Cook City for the )Iontana
Railway Co. Dunnell of Minnesota antag
onized the bill successfully. In a private
conversation Dunnell said: "I was the
father of National Park bill and still have
a paternal interest in that wonderland. I
am opposed to granting any railroad right
of way through the Park, because the
frst would only form a precedent for
many which would follow."
SSenator Sanders says the bill as amend
ed is a good ospe, being relieved of all
monopolistit features. He would oppose
the bill unless it were very clear the road
would be built by December, 1891. Mines
which would be made accessible will be
exceedingly valuable when the road isl
completed to Cook City.

crime. Kopask has been "keenlog

"Bismarck Kid." When Freeland came

General Manager A. L. Mohler, Assist
ant GeneralManager T' A. Switz of the
Great Northern, Geo. Mohler of Burling
ton, a brother of A. L. Mohler, Captunt
W. W. Smith of Minneapolis and J. C.
Forman of Cleveland, Ohio, came in on a
special yesterday. Accompanied by W.
B. Green of Helena and Supt. J.A. A.Mayer,
the party visited the dam and spring dur
lIg the afternoon.
Messrs. Switz and Forman are on the
return from a trip over the Canadian
Pacific, to Seattle and other coast cities.
Mr. Mohler, in speaking of the affairs of
the road said that the very large increase
of business at this end during the past
year, had fully demonstrated the wisdom
of extending the line into Montapa. He i
said that work on the westward extension
was rapidly progressing. The eastern
terminus has not been fully decided upon,
but will be at some pointbetwoen Fort
Assiniboine and Havre. When asked
about the other end, Mr. Mohler said the
Great Northern might have several ter
mini on the coast. That the fine equip
ment and excellent service of the Great
Northern are fully appreciated tois shown
by the constantly increasing passenger I
traflfic. The mission of the party'is pure
ly one of inspection, though it is rumored
that their visit to Butts was with the
view or connecting Butte with Anaconda
by another line.
Improvements at Giant Spring,
Plans have been matured which, when
carried out, will add much to the beauty
of the Giant spring. A fence will be
built around the land lying near and
numrerous walks put in at the spring.
The grounds will be laid out in walks
and drives, trees will be planted-in short
a beautiful park will be made inclosing
the spring and adding to the attractive
ness of the scene. As before the people
will be welcome to visit this great won
der, as the park and spring will be dedi
cated to the public by the owners.
The Valeria Library Assoelation.
Amid the rapid progress and the active
building operations of the season the
Valeria library association has been
scarcely noticed. Yet the rooms have
been kept open daily and many bayv
availed themselves of its privileges.
Quietly the officers have kept at work
and now have completed arrangements
whereby the essoaiation will receive more I
attention. The Townsite company gave
the enterprise a lot on First avenue
north valued at $4,000. Plans have been
completed atd are now in the hands of
Mr. H. O. Chowen for a handsome build
ing which will be erected on the lot.
Work will commence at once and before
December let the Valerlas will be at home
in their new building. This enterprise is
a credit to the city and destined to be an
important factor in making Great Falls
the intellectual center of Montana.

The conference of the Congregational
churches met at Arion hall at 3:30 p. m.
thursday and proceeded to the examina
tion of Mr. Peterson, who has been
preaching at Butte for the past year.
The candidate was found to be well
qualified to enter the ministry under the
Congregational association of Montana.
The conference then adjourned to meet
at the same place at 7:80 p. m.
At the appointed hour the hall was
filled with a large attentive audience,
representing every denomination in the
city and the number of business and
professional men present, indicated that
the citizens of Great Falls were not un
interested in the establishment of another
church in their city.
The assembly was called to order and
the delegates from abroad took up the
work of the adjourned session of the af
ternoon The committee reported favor
ably regarding the establishing of a Con
gregational church. After a discussion
of minor matters a report was called for
of the work already accomplished by the
newly organized society. The minutes
