A Peculiar Accident to a Student of the Unlver
.. city and the Resultsmay Fatal.
Hit by a i6-P6and Hammer Hut Skull IsNearly
Crashed. *,
A most peculiar and unfortunate ac
cident happened at the state university
last Saturday in which John E. Owens
of Sleepy Eye, a student in the dental
department, was very seriously injured,
in fact my lose his life.. The story as
told by the Minneapolis Tribune is as
An incident unprecendented at. the
state university and peculiar in nature
occurred yesterday afternoon at North
rop field.
John E. Owens, Sleepy Eye, a junior
dental student at the university, sus
tained* a fractured skull, and lies in a
critical condition at St. Barnabas hos
The physicians think that lW has a
chance to recover, but they cannot tell
what the outcome will be for severa'
Owens was engaged in playing ball
on the athletic field with a number of
companions. Other students' were throw
ing a 16-pound hammer from a point
on the left of the home plate. Owens
was playing in the field, and several
times ventured too close to the place
where the hammer usually fell. Tie was
warned to be careful, but he only
Finally Carl Jorgens picked up the
heavy hammer and threw it from 75 to
80 ft. When it left Jorgen's hand Ow
ens had his back turned, and when he
heard cries of warning he wheeled ab
rubtly, only to be struck by the hammer
full, in the forehead.
The heavy missile had great moment
um, and a deep hole was torn in th«
young man's skull. He was carried un
conscious into the armory, and medical
aid was summoned. Shortly afterwards
be was taken.to St. Barnubas. hospital.
Late in the afternoon the physicians op
erated to remove the splinters of bone,
and in spite of the severe fracture they
think he has fair chances to grow well.
Owens was 21 years of age Monday
and has been a student in the dental de
partment two years. He has taken con
siderable interest in athletics, and has
many friends among his associates.
No blame is attached to the young
man who threw the hammer.
Eights of a finder.
The suit at New Haven of tne Pair
Haven & Westville Railroad company
against Andrew McNerney to recover by
a writ of replevin the pocketbook of Ar
thur H. Day, which was found by
McNerney in one of the cars of the com
pany, and which was decided Che other
day in favor of the defendent, is of much
interest, says the Hartford Times. The
case was heard in the.New Haven county
court, before Judge L. M. Hubbard, for
merly secretary of the state.
The loss of articles of value iu public
conveyance and their finding is of com
mon occurrence, but the right of the
finder to the property is not generally
understood. An epitome of Judge Hub
bard's charge upon which the jury found
for the defendent is:
"First-The property must have been
legally lost.
"Second-The tinder must take legal
"Third-The finder must act innocently
in the matter aud with entire honesty
and good faith toward the owner.
"In order to constitute legal losing
the thing must have been actually lost
by the owner, not merely mislaid that
is he must not voluntarily and purpose
ly have laid* it away for a time with the
intention of retaking it, but it oiust
have voluntarily and accidentally, as
respects the owner, got out of his posses
sion V^-V"'\ --1.3
"In order to make a man^a finder of
a lost chattel he must have possession
of it and to constitute this possession
three things are necessary: **jffi*j£4i%$
"A-^The i'act that the thing found'is
in his possession must be," consciously
known to him." %j& r^4y%ti'^M€
"B^He must have (at least the time
of finding) physical power and control
''over the
fo und. .\.- •*$& *$
MC—He must intend to be and "remain
the awnierrOtthe^huig^and,,©^ at least
«o exclude other* from the object-found.
"As against the owner of the prem
ises, where the thing is found,' the thing
must have been actualyjtost and it must
appear that the finder WAS on the prem
ises by a rightful act, and not as a tres
passer. Generally speaking, it d&esn't
matter where the thing is found. The
place of finding derives its chief .impor
tance fjom its bearing'on the question,
whether the article was really lost.
Speed at Which Cable Messages Can Be Sent.
One of the essential features of a sub
marine cable is the speed of signaling.
Di operating long cables very delicate
instruments are required, and the cur
rents arriving at the receiving end are
vary feeble in comparison with those'
employed in laudhne signalling. The
longer the cable, naturally, the feebler
the impulses arriving at the receiving
end. A short cable, a cable of under
1,000 miles being generally considered a
short cable, gives a speed of signalling
amply sufficient for all purposes, with
at conductor weighing about iOO pound
to the miles, surrounded by an insula
ting envelope of gutta-percha weighing
about an equal amount. When we come
to a cable of about twice this length it
is found necessary, in order to get a
practically unlimited speed, that is, a
speed as high as the most expert oper
ator can read at, to employ a score of
650 pounds of copper to the mile, in
sulated with 400 pounds of gutta-percha
to the mile.. These are the propor ions
of copper and gutta-peicha in the
1894 Anglo-American Atlantic cable,
which is considered the record Atlan
tic cable for speed ot working, and has
been worked, by automatic transmis
sion, at the rate of jme, 45 words a
minute. The type of cable proposed
for the X&ncouverrFanning section of
the British Pacific cable, as design
ed by Lord Kelvin, is to have a
core of 553 pounds of copper and 368
pounds ot gntta-pereha to the mile, and
is calculated to give a speed of 12 words
per minute over a length of 3,560 miles.
It is not considered safe to adopt a very
much heavier core than this, for the rea
soe that the weight of the complete ca
ble with a core that should weigh more
than about half a ton to the nautical
mile would be so great that picking it
up for repairs from a depth of 3,000
fathoms would be an extremely difficult
and hazardous operation.—From "The
Problems of a Pacific Cable," Herbert
Laws Webb, in the February Scribner's.

The amusement loving people of the
city have been kept reasonably busy
during the past week. The leading
event of the week was, of course, the
theatrical performance by local talent at
Turner Hall Sunday evening, at which
time the rousing *German comedy "Der
Tatzelwurm," was prestnted by a com
pany of well known local artists. The
attendance was most satisfactory, in fact
•the theatre was filled to its comple ca
pacity, and the performance was one of
the best ever witnessed in this city. Ev
ery part was exceptionally well taken
and the entire piece was elegantly staged.
The play will be reproduced, by special
request Sunday evening, evening Mav 6.
At ihe Congregational church a special
Easter program was given by the Sunday
school to a very large audience aud-was
very creditable, indeed. Aside from the
very entertaining work by the children
of the Sunday school there were vocal
solos by James Beecher and Miss Eva
Klosener and some excellent singing by
the Sunday school quartette.
Special Easter services were held at
all the churches, the attendance at each
being very large.
Dances were given at the various halls
lo celebrate the closing of lent.
"The farmers of thi| section," Baid a
promiuent produce buyer to The Review
yesterday, "are forgetting one of the
crops which might be made a great
source ol revenue to theml Wheat, at
the present prices, is a losing crop and a
more diversified system of farming is
where the money lies. This should be
one of "the greatest potato growing sec
tioqs of the state, but the fact is that
the Brown county potato has no stand
ing whatever in the market. The reason
for thisJs very simple- Fanners in tbib
-vicinity pay no attention whatever to
the kind or grade of potatoes which
they produce and the result is that it is
absolutely impossible for a buyer to get
together a single car of any one kind of
potatoes for shipment, and consequently
mnst take whatever he «aa get when he
goes, into the market. What the farmers
should do is to settle down upon some
standard kind of seed and plant nothing
else. The time was when we coold eas
ily, buy a car of Early Rose or Snowfiake
potatoes but at the present time it
would he an absolute impossibility to
get a car of any one kind, hence we are
at a disadvantage in the market, and ei
ther the grower or the buyer must lose
in the matter of price. There is good
money in potatoes if they are systemat
ically grown and is to be hoped that the
farmers will come to this conclusion and
pay more attention to this crop than
they do now."
Now that the Puerto Rico bill is a law
what is the status of an inhabitant of
Puerto Rico? The law says he is a citi
zen of Puerto Rico,
But what is Puerto Rico? It is not a
part of the United States. If it were,
the law would be unconstitutional..
It is not an independent country. If it
is, we have no business legislating for it,
unless we intend to set it up for itself.
•Poor Puerto Rico is neither state, ter
ritory, nation nor colony.
It is a sort of congressional laboratory,
where experiments in legislation can be
tried on the dog.—Minneapolis Journal.
Statisticians account for John D.
Rockefeller's annual $40,000,000, gain
in manner conclusive. There was an
output of 2,500,000,000 gallons of crude
oil in 1897. Of this the Standard Oil
company had 800,000,000 gallons, at
2.28 increase per gallon which in
creased their profits $18,000,000. The
present rates of oil are an expression of
the extreme avarice of the Standard Oil
trust. It occupies a front seat in the
American Bankers Association trust the
profits of which exceed those of the oil
steal. When the people do their own
thirking they will protect themselves
against the rascals who now gather in all
the profits of all the industry of all the
toilers iu the world.—National Republi
On the verge of every presidential
campaign there is a scramble for the
catchwords. Both parties are now at it.
So far the democrats seem to have the
best ammunition. They have secured:
"The constitution follows the flag,"
"William the Wobbler," "Canned liber
ty for the Filipinos," "The Porto Ricans
are eighty-five per cent free," "We op
pose British domination,""Imperialism,"
"The plain duty message," "The mes
sage of the sugar and tobacco trusts."
"No slavery under the American flag,"
"We oppose taxation without represen
tation," "Save the Monroe doctrine,'*
"We stand on the constitution and the
declaration of independence," "Save the
good faith of the nation," "All just pow
ers of government are derived from the
consent of the governed," "Anti-trust
"Government by injunction," "No stand
ing army," "Cut down the expenses,"
"Lower the taxes" aud others.
The republicans are mostly on the de
fensive and it is not so easy to defend in
a word or sentence. They started out
well with "Prosperity," "Expansion,"
"New markets," "Who will put down
the flag?" "Duty and destiny," "Gold
and glory," "Sound money," -'Spread
civilization,"( "Commerce follows the
flag."—Minneapolis Journal.
THE Minneapolis Tribune has figured
out the alleged fact that the democratic
nominees will not occupy first place on
the ballot at the coming election. The
Tribune's conclusions are as follows:
"The general election law, in provid
iag for the position of the candidates on
the tickets, states that the party which
wins on the head of the state ticket shall
have the first position at the ensuing
election, except when there was no state
•election, in which event the head of the
ticket shall be'determined by the win
ning parry on the several other tickets.
It also provides that in no case, in se
lecting the head of the ticket, shall any
party be counted {where election has
been secured by a combination with any
other party .*John Lind was a fusion
candidate, hence the Democrats will not
have the first place on the ticket. The
fact is they will have the very last posi
tion on every ticket, for this reason.
The last state ticket had on itcandidates
running on the Republican ticket, the
Piohibition ticket, the Socialist Labor
ticket and the Midroad Populist ticket.
These were all straight parries, hence
they will have positions on the next
election ticket in order, while |he Dem
erits will be obliged to take last place
because they did not have a. single can*
didate ranningon the stats, ticket^!
