That Hermann in the Mintater-A
Tell-Tale Photograph Corroborate«
Her Theory.
Salt Lake City, July 16.—If the latest
story in connection with Rev. Francis
Hermans, the Scandinavian Methodist
church murderer, is true, it at
11 re
places him in the front rank of crim
inals without a parallel, and alongside
of whom Holmes, the multi-murde
sinks into insignificance. The
charges that Hermans conTnjTtied no
less than fourteen murders in Sweden.
A few days ago John M. Hanson,
whose connection with hunting do
the preacher has made his name very
well known among the Scandinavian
population of the north central state*,
received a letter from a Swedish lady in
Chicago. The lady's name is Anna G.
Lundstrom and she hails from the same
place in Sweden as did Hermans. Mrs.
Lundstrom was struck with the famijiar
features when she looked at his picti
in one of the daily papers. She at once
made up her mind that she kn«\v him,
but for several days failed to place him.
Finally in looking over some old pho
tographs one day her eyes fell upon a
group of Swedish ministers, among
whom was one resemhling in detail the
Salt Lake murderer; but the most start
ling revelation was that the minister
who resembled Hermans was one that
was wanted in the old country for poi
soning fourteen people The thought
at once fastened itself upon her mind
that Hermans and the one whose like
ness was among the group were one
and the same. But she decided to in
vestigate before making known her
suspicions, and at once wrote to Mr.
Hanson, asking him all sorts of ques
tions about Hermans and what was
known about his career in the past.
Now the fact is that back of 1S69 noth
ing definite concerning the pastor is
known; but Hanson gave all tile infor
mation he could, especially what he had
learned concerning Hermans' early
days in Sweden. A reply at once came,
indicating that Mr?. Lundstrom was
strengthened in her suspicions. This
brought on an in vesHgation here, with
the result that a similar picture was
found among the fugitive pr acher's ef
fects in Salt Lake.
In comparing Hermans* latest picture
with that taken in Sweden, it is difficult
at first glance to make out the resem
blance; but a close examination of the
features confirms the theory.
The work of the Swedish minister,

Chicago, July 13.—The executive
committee of the gold standard Demo
crats of Illinois met in a protracted ses
sion today and prepared
the Democrats of other states of the
Union. It
address to
s the unanimous opinion
of the committee that a second national
convention should be called to nominate
candidates for president and vice presi
dent. The add
'•To our fellow Democrats of other
6tate6 :—
is as follows :
"A national convention, cenvened un
der the constituted authority of our par
ty, has just closed Us session in the city
of Chicago It entered upon its work
by violating ail party precedents in the
rejection of a distinguished Democrat
for temporary presiding officer.
"It deprived a sovereign state of a
voice in its deliberations by unseating
without cause of legal justification dele
gates elected with all the regularity
known to party organization.
"It refused to endorse the honesty
and fidelity of the present democratic
national administration.
"It adopted a platform which favors
the free and unlimited coinage of sil
by this country alone at the ratio of 16
to i and thereby it repudiated a time
honored democratic principle, which de
mands the strictest maintenance of a
sound and stable national currency.
"Finally, to make it still plainer that,
although in name it was not in fact a
democratic convention, it nominated for
president one who is not in his political
convictions and has not always been
even in his professions a democrat.
This has made such a crisis, both for
the nation and the democratic party
that sound money democrats must at
once decide what political action they
will take for the protection of the honor
of the nation, the prosperity of the peo
ple and the life and usefulness of the
party. The sound money democrats of
Illinois have fully made up their minds
that a new democratic national conven
tion should be called for the earliest
feas'ble day to nominate democratic
candidates for president and vice presi
dent, and to adopt a platform of demo
cratic principles--and they desire to
6tate to their fellow democrats of other
states the reasons, as follows:
"First—Sound money democrats owe
it to the county to make it certain at
once that their revolt against free silver
is determined and will be organized. It
is unfair to oblige the credit of the na
tion and the business and industrial In
terests of the people to merely guess
what the sound money democrats will
do in November and to wait until No
vember to find out.
"Second—The nomination of a new
ticket is the logical course. Without it
and a sound money democratic cam
paign, the whole educational force of
sound money democratic sentiment
would be pat*aly2ed from the beginning.
Republicans cannot argue the sound
money question to democratic voters.
Republican sincerity on that question is
doubted bv the mass of democrats.
The tariff question will be put to the
front and insisted upon by republican
speakers and the republican press as it
has persistently been by Mr. McKinley
himself. Democrats will not listen to
lessons om finance when accompanied by
abuse by the democratic party. The
most effective force at this time for a
campaign Is the force residing in the
sound money democrats; for they are
profoundly in earnest and can get a
hearing from democrats that the repub
licans cannot possibly get.
"Third—A new r**
" '* (>
that [
AAsuciatlon with the
Bryan party, or they must accept asso
ciation and entanglement with it, and
all state organizations will, in the public
mind, be for It that do not make it ahso
lidely clear that they are against it.
The sound money democrats are nil
sufficiently organized in this state to be
able to meet their fellow democrats in a
convention; and are
confer with representatives of other
states whenever a representative con
ference can be brought about. Com
munications should be addressed to
Charles A. Ewing, chairman, Palmer
house, Chicago."
