Snively Meets Instant Death —Suicide Theory Discredited. DULUTH, Minn., Feb. 24.—Claude S. Snively, a young attorney, fell from the fifth story of the Lonsdale building on the principal business corner of Duluth at 8:25 o'clock this morning and was instantly killed. The sight was a most horrible one. The young man struck head first on a spiked iron railing and then fell on the stone sidewalk with his blood and brains scattered all about. Not a sign of life was evident when he was reached by the first eye-witness. The manner of the accident is diffi cult to determine. There were but one or two witnesses, and they only saw him in the air as he was falling. He was in the office of Washburn, Bailey & Mitchell, and was alone at the time. Some impression prevails that it may have been suicide, but there seems to be nothing to substantiate this theory. The theory of his employers is that he leaned from the open window to get a view of the town clock and lost his balance. He was 27, of excellent habits, moved in good society and was building up a practice of his own as well as working in the office of the firm. S. F. Snively. a brother, is one of Duluth's leading business men and has been a resident of the city for twenty years or more. The two roomed at the same house and the brother declares that the theory of su cide is impossible. Blue Butter. "Did you ever see blue butter?" said | the dairyman. "No. Never." "Well, then, cast your eye on this." The butter was undeniably blue —as blue as the sky on a sunnoy day. "It is from India," said the dairy man. "It's made from the thin milk of the native Indian cow. My brother is over in India running an ice-making plant, and he sent me the butter for a curiosity, knowing I'd be interested. "He salted the stuff well, and so it reached me in good shape. Taste it. Sweet as a nut, isn't it? It is not so pretty, though, as our rich, yellow but ter." iry Broxson's Wood Yard. Phone 855.

ROSE HAS A RIVAL IN CHICAGO. Stagg Found Athletic Giant Who Is a Coming Record-Breaker. CHICAGO, Ills., Feb. 24.—Coach Stagg has found an athletic giant who promises to rival the wonder Rose. The Maroon "find" however, differs in that he has ho inclination to challenge Jeffries and in that he is first a stu dent and then an athlete. Merrill C. Meigs is the new athletic wonder at the Midway school. He was born in lowa, but after complet ing his preliminary education at little Helmer academy, in Maine, he accept ed a position as salesman and for the last four years he has been abroad and in the South American countries. He came to the University of , Chicago from Argentina last fall and has been "dubbed" by the Chicago students as j the "South American giant." Meigs hasn't the immense stature of Rose, but at that is a very large man. Although but 21 years of age, he is 6] feet 5 inches tall and weighs 215 pounds. His development is wonder fully symmetrical and has been char acterized by Coach Stagg as "a per fect specimen of the young college athlete in stature." The coach has found his muscles well developed and trained to a superb degree of co-ordination. Although Meigs has had but little actual expe rience In college athletics, his wonder- ! ful strength and build and natural ath letic instinct and alertness have won Stagg's heart. Meigs entered the university last fall as a special student, and was therefore not eligible for football. He j was used on the freshman team, how | ever, and is thought to be one of the most promising candidates for football honors in the west for next year. Coach Stagg is expecting great things of him. * It is his work in winter baseball practice that is opening the eyes of the Midway coaches now. Coach Harper sees in the young giant an other Christy Matthewson or Jake Stahl. Meigs was captain and first baseman and pitcher of his academy ball team and led in batting. He has demonstrated to Coach Harper by his indoor work that the loss of Ells worth to the Maroon pitching staff will be materially offset by his prow ness. While Coach Maloney has not given him a good workout in the weight events as yet, he sees in Meigs pros pects of a great hammer thrower, and as soon as it is possible to have the candidates work outdoors he proposes jto have Meigs try to throw the big : weight over the Marshall Field fence. He believes that he can do it. Unusual for an athlete and a j wreshman, Meigs has established a reputation as a student at the univer sity, standing A in his studies for the year. He is a member of the fresh man honor society, the Three-Quar ters club and of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. MINTON SENDS RESIGNATION IN. Member Bellingham Normal Board of Trustees Incurs Displeasure. BELLINGHAM, Feb. 24.—Dr. J. C. Minton, has mailed Governor Mead his resignation as a member of the board of trustees of the state normal school at Bellingham, to become ef fective immediately. J. J. Donovan, general superintendent of the B. B. & B. C. Railway company and Belling ham Bay Improvement company, wlfi THE EVENING STATESMAN FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1905. be named as his successor, in ali probability. Dr. Minton was named by Gov. Mc- Bride to fill the unexpired term of the late Li. P. White, and his next term would have expired June 13. It was a recess appointment, however, an 1 was transmitted to the senate for confirmation by Gov. Mcßride only the Jay before the expiration of his term. Mr. Donovan's first appointment therefore, will be to fill out the unex pired term of Dr. Minton, but the governor will reappaint him for a full six years' term on June 13. Dr. Minton incurred executive dis pleasure, it is generally understood, by voting for R. O. Hadley, son of Supreme Judge H. E. Hadley, for clerk of the board of normal trustees in stead of former Superintedent of City Schools E. E. White, whom Mr. Mead is credited with a desire to re ward for political services. Gov. Mead's local friends fear his action will arouse the bitter antagonism of Judge Hadley's friends. Although Dr. Mm ton's action in voting for R. D. Hadley for clerk of the board of normal trustees instead of E» E. White cost him his position, it is not generally believed the gover nor wil require that Hadley be super seded. Mr. White seeks to be named as the third member of the board of trustees to succeed Trustee F. C. Teck, whose term expires March 13, but 't is said that his position has already been promised elsewhere. It is pos sible the governor may make Mr. White a regent of the state university.

"The story is told in Missouri that the throwing of a broad-brimmed hat to the ceiling of the hall of the house iv the capitol at Jefferson City, made Francis Marion Cockrell a United States senator. The stateh da beer, stirred by a contest for the demo cratic nomination for the governer ship. The lines were sharply drawn. In a state convention numbering a thousan* delegates, Charles H. Hardin had won by the narrow mag-gin of half a vote. So bitter was the feeling that the leaders feared irreconcilable divi sion in the party ranks. The result, however, had scarcely been announced when the tall figure of the defeated candidate, General Cock rell, was seen coming to the platform. In a moment, as the hush of expect ancy fell upon the crowd, Cockrell's voice rang out: "No man,' said he, "will more loyally support the nominee of the convention than myself. No man will throw his hat higher for Charley Hardin than will I." And away to the ceiling went the broad-brimmed Cockrell hat. The con vention was frantic with enthusiasm. The following spring General Cockrell became senator by the unanimous vote of the democrats of Missouri. For five successive terms, since March 4, 1875. with never a democratic vote against him, he has been elected to the senatorship, the first and only political office he ever held. Now at last the republican victory in Missouri means his retirement. But President Roosevelt will name him on the inter state commerce commission. NOTICE.

WILL WAGE WAR ON MEGLER MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE WILL PRESENT HIS DICTATORIAL METHODS. It Is Claimed That He Ignores the Legislators and That He Is Overbearing. j If the house coninues in the same | temper as it was yesterday afternoon. I Speaker Megler will find his every de j cision questioned and his position : anything but pleasant. Throughout j the session he has displayed a dicta : torial turn of mind, is the story print !ed in the Tacoma News. He has met | with little or no opposition and his j control has not been disturbed. Until recently, though, he has not been particularly unfair, and while dissatisfaction has at times been ex pressed, there has been no open revolt. Monday afternoon, the house, desir ing to follow the lead of the senate, wished to adjourn until Thursday. The motion to adjourn until Tuesday was lost, but the speaker declared it car ried and dissolved the session. He gave no opportunity appeal. Had he announced the vote as it really was, the house would at once have put into effect the motion to adjourn till Thursday. The speaker had his way and the house worked yesterday. At noon the motion to take the usual midday re cess was offered by Williams. Both was on his feet at once, demanding recognition. He addressed the chair at least four times. His voice rose higher on each occasion. The last time the chamber was absolutely quiet, the house evidently believing that some sort of a storm was impending. The speaker paid no attention to the gentleman from Whatcom, but calmly put the motion and ordered the recess. At that it was doubtful whether th* - actual .count would hot have given the "nays" the decision. After the session Roth met the speaker on the floor of the house and demanded an explanation. Mr. Megler insisted that he had neither seen nor heard* Roth. This closed the incident. In the afternoon the house tried to adjourn at 3 o'clock. Evidently thinking this time to please the mem bers, the speaker announced the mo tion as carried. Out of perversity the house demanded a roll call, and on this being taken voted down the mo tion. During the j>rogress of the call, Glea son, of King, rose to explain his vote. He was cut short by the speaker de claring that he would tolerate no speech. From that on there was scarcely an "aye" for the motion. A little later the house did adjourn, but it did so if its own accord and not at the speaker's dictation. The members say now that Megler's attitude means trouble for him, and that no leniency will be shown him when the struggle is once begun. CAPITOL SCARES THE RAILROADS. Transportation Chiefs Dread Extra Session —Fear Rate Bill. NEW YORK, Feb. 24—The Heralds Washington correspondent sends the following dispatch: Railroad presidents are regarding the struggle between President Roose velt and the senate with ill-disguised concern. They have only to maintain their present position and nothing will be done by the senate on the subject of giving the interstate commerce commission power to make rates, fur ther than to postpone action. The railroads, however, are not sure this would be a safe proceeding in view of the changed relations which are now apparent. On the contrary, under certain conditions, they may favor action at once. Some of the most important railroad men in the country have been asking Washington what will be the effect of the contest upon the president in re gard to an extra session. They fear if the contest goes on —and there are in dications Roosevelt is ready to try conclusions with the senate immediate ly—the president will call an ex tra session in the spring. If that should happen, the railroads will not be in good shape to meet a demand from Roosevelt that congress pass either the Esch-Townsend bill or an equally radical measure. The new house will contain about 100 republicans who have never sat in congress before, and who were elect ed on the Roosevelt tidal wave. These might carry through the house an even more radical bill than that which passed with such an overwhelming majority last week. The next senate, too, will be far different from that which is now sit ting. There are a dozen new members, and the railroads do not know whether they agree with the president or the transportation lines. It is known that Roosevelt will be stronger then than low by several votes —possibly by nine or ten. Governor LaFollette of Wisconsin whose chief issue is railroad regu lations, will be a member of the next senate. Burkett of Nebraska will be another,* and he was not elected until he declared he was with the presi dent on the railroad fight. There ait new senators from Nevada. Idaho, Washington, California, Indiana. Connecticut an 1 Montana — all of whoir were chosen by legislatures which weri elected on the Roosevelt ticket, an most of them are expected I "> side witr the president on this subje t. Glass Skates. The young man's skates were madi of glass. They glittered like diamonds in the cold winter sunlight. He skated upon them very skillfully. "Glass skates," he said, "beat stee! ones. They slip along better than the steel: you can skate on rough ice bet ter with them. Another advantage is that they never need sharpening. Ground sharp in the beginning, they keep sharp as 'ong as they last. A third advantage is that they don't rust, and hence, to prevent rust, it isn't ne cessary to rub them dry with h chamois every time you take them off. "They are very expensive, though. To make a glass hard enough to make skate runners is an expensive process. Hence, till the process becomes less costly, glass skates won't bo com mon."
