They Have Him This Time, Sure Caught in Manitoba. Bt. Paul, Minn., March 16. A dispatch from West Selkirk, Man., says Tascotthas been caught on Lake Winnipeg. No par ticulars have been received. Recently five detectives arrived from Chicago having a clew to the whereabouts- f Tascott, be being supposed to be work ine In some of the neighboring lumber camns. The detectives left here suddenly, supposedly for British Columbia. News arrived last evening from Lake Winnipeg statfhg that Tascott had been caDtured and is now on the way here in charge of the detectives. Tascott was cer tainlv here recently and there is a proba bility that the right man has been found. The Pioneer Press Winnipeg special gives the following more definite state' ment of the capture of Tascott: "Some Indians arrived by dog train at two o'clock yesterday at West Selkirk, conveying the news that Tascott, the murderer or &neli, the Chicago millionaire, had just been captured on Lake Winnipeg by the Chi cago detectives who, accompanied by the son-in-law of the murdered man, have been following a strong clew with the re sult stated for the past few weeks. They, arrived near here just after Tascott left his work to go, he said, to Dakota. How ever, they are reported to be on their way to this city with the murderer." A dispatch received at ten o'clock ast night from Selkirk says the Indians who brought the information from Iake Winni peg have gone to one of the lodges at the reserve for the night and can not now be located. Great excitement prevails among the villagers at Selkirk, but many are disinclined to believe the report brought in by the Indians.

A large audience at the Kenwood Club last night listened to a paper on "Socialism in America" by Judge Grinnell, who was State's attorney in the Anarchist trial. There was fre quent applause. He said: "The eager desire of party leaders to obtain and re tain office keeps Socialism and its attend ant evils alive. In Chicago Anarchism is exaggerated out of all proportions to its power for do good purpose and some members of both political parties seem inclined to act so as to catch this element. In my opinion the talk about the Anarchists during this last win ter has been a willful, wicked exaggera tion of their power, an injury to the fair name of Chicago, a serious- detriment to its business interests and I confidently be lieve tbe purpose of such exaggeration was purely political. Anarchy as an organization is dea in America. Its advocates have 'resolved them selves ; back .into . their former state or parentage, namely, Socialism.- "The Yankee law has terrified them. ' But we can not with the same ease brush aside Socialism. That ia here not to be snuffed out.

How General and Garrison Courts-Martial Are Conducted. The "Articles of War" provide . for the trial by courts-martial of all per sons under the control of the military authorities of the country who may be accused of offenses committed against the regulations and laws enacted' for the government of tbe armies of the United States. Unlike the practice in civil life, the combined powers of both judge and jury are vested m the officers composing a court-martial, they delib erating upon the evidence of the wit nesses, determining as to the guilt oi innocence of the defendants, and pass ing sentence upon culprits. An officer is appointed as J udge-Advocate, whose duties are to conduct the prosecution as well as to act as counsel for the ac cused when the latter has no legal ad viser of his own. and to object to any questions that might lead to an answer on the part of the defendant tending to eployes to swear. criminate himself. So-called general courts-martial are convened for the hearing and judg ment of important cases and for the trial of commissioned officers, and may be appointed by any geaeral officer commanding a separate army or de partment. Such a court consists of thirteen members, unless the exigen cies of the service prevent the assem bling of that number of officers; but in no case may a general court have less than five members. Garrison and regimental courts-martial, having three members, are ap pointed by the commanding officer of any post or regiment, and are con vened for the trial of minor offenses on the part of any. of the enlisted men forminar the command. - As the, law now stands, even the slightest infringe ment of the rules of discipline calls for action by a court-martial," and such petty breaches of good conduct, as ab-, sence from roll-call or from quarters after "taps," slovenly or untidy dress, quarrelsome ' or abusive .language to comrades or non-commissioned officers, etc., the penalty for which is. usually the imposition of a slight fine to be stopped from the soldier's pay, are treated with all the form and cere mony of trials-for grave offenses. The sworn testimony of the witnesses, . ac cording to the rules of evidence, must be reduced to . writing, and a report made of the proceedings in each case, as the regulations prohibit tho execu tion of any sentences by a court-martial until its action is confirmed by the officer ordering the" court. When the fact is taken into consideration that, according to the report of Colonel Lieber, Acting Judgo-Advocatc-Gen-eral, there were 10,447 trials before garrison courts during the past year in an army the total peace footing of which is limited by law to a force of but 25,000 men, it would seem that a system les cumbersome and loss irk some to both officer and men might be devised bv which nettv violations of regulations . could be punished - sum marily without injustice dier.

IJut on the basis of popular guesses tho figures of Senatorial wealth that I Baw to-day footed up $139,000,000. According to this calculation there are, counting Vice-President' Morton, nineteen mill ionaires in the Senate, which number is "a third of the total membership.
