Erwin on the Stand in the Welch-Vilas Case— The Evidence. All In. The Free Baptists Pass Reso lutions—Their Contents a Mystery. Missionary Meeting" of Pres byterian Ladies—Civil En gineers Meet. Commissioner Lennon Has the Pleasure of Being Hur riedly "Bounced." READY FOR ARGUMENT. Closing Testimony in the AVelch Case — Old Letters Read. When court took up the Welch libel case yesterday morning. Judge Hicks announced that he had made a mistake the previous day in allowing the intro duction of testimony serving as grounds upon which to have reasonable excuse or a justification of the alleged libel and that all of such evidence would be stricken from the records. He then decided that the proof of the truth of the alleged libel should first be. produced before any species of justification could be ad vanced. Col. Sessions, counsel for the defense, the raised the question of what position Mr.Erwin occupied in this case. He said the law very plainly says that the county attorney may have assist ance, but the county shall not pay for lt; the law also commands that tin; county attorney shall not have the advantage of counsel paid for by per sons not a party to the suit. Mr. Erwin was then asked to take the stand. Col. Sessions asked him the following ques tion: . ... "Do you appear as an attorney in this case?" , „ Mr. Davis objected, and Col. Sessions detailed what he expected to prove by the witness. It was to the effect that he had been employed by W. F. Vilas to work up the case and press the prosecu tion. He then read as to the question of law involved in a report of a similar case in Wisconsin. The result of this discussion was that the court con cluded that this was a vital question and that an Improper rul ing on this point might cause a new trial of the case,and consequently he would adjourn the court until 2 o'clock and consult some authorities on the question. When court was recon vened Judge Hicks denied the motion to exclude Mr. Erwin from the case. Duel E. Hutchinson was put on the stand by the state in rebuttal. The letters whicii passed between Hutchin son and Welch in regard to the wrecking of the insurance company were "then read, which reading took up most of the afternoon. Mr, Welch read the letters written by him self, which were mostly letters of in quiry. The replies were read by the witness, Hutchinson. The reading of these letters by the authors themselves brought out every point to its best ad vantage. After the reading of these letters, one written by the defendant to David Atwood, the president of the company, was read and then his reply, followed by a second from the defendant. In the first letter the defendant asked what had become of the surplus and what amount had been paid Vilas, and the reply was that he was entirely ignorant of any pay ments Having been made to Vilas or any one else, and as to the disposition of the surplus he could give no infor mation, In the second letter Welch calls Atwood's attention to the fact that if his statements in his last letter were true then he had been grossly libeled by Insurance Commissioner Spooner in his report made June, 1879. The witness (Hutchinson) was then asked to state how much each director received from the surplus fund. The defense objected because in one of his letters lie said he could not remember, and if he had made an estimate from any books he might have in his posses sion, then the books were the best evi dence and they should be produced. The witness stated that he, as secretary of the company, made these payments himself and remembered what they were, but at the time he wrote the let ter spoken of he had not seen the books for some years and consequently he did not feel safe in stating the exact amounts. That since then lie had re freshed his memory and could give the exact amounts from memory. "Do you not use the book as the basis for these calculations?" asked Col. Ses sions. "No, sir," answered the witness; "1 made those payments and remember what they were without reference to the books." lie then took a paper out of his pocket and read off the following statement: "The surplus fund of 823,000 was divided as follows: Vilas. c 4,140; Brown, $11,500; Proudfoot, ¥4,000; Fox, "MOO; Dudley, $1,150; Hutchinson, $1,150. Atwood did not receive anything." Col. Session then stepped up to the witness and asked to look at the paper, wiiich was handed him. He then said: "As you say you remember what these payments were, now tell me the amount each one received as 1 read off the names." He then read of the names of Vilas, Brown, Proudfoot and Dudley. The witness got the amounts right for two of them, but failed on the other two. This caused Col. Session to break out into a lend guffaw, and he told the witness which two were wrong. The witness managed to correct one amount, but hopelessly stuck on the other. Col. Ses sions advised the witness to again re fresh his memory, and said they were through with him. This closes the evidence in the case, and the prosecution will sum up tne case at 9:30 this forenoon. THEY RKSOLUTED, But an Air of Deepest Mystery Enshrouded the Meeting.. The great indignation meeting that has been discussed so much the past few days in reference to the resignation of Bey! J. J. Hall from the Free Baptist church, took place last night and turned out to be a very tame and unimportant event after all. It partook of the nature of a star-chamber sitting, and as it had a good deal of the ludicrous about it, it will not be amiss to state the simple facts as they occurred. The meeting was held in the small room, ante-cham bers to the lecture hall in the basement. To have heard some of the trustees talk, one would have supposed the whole congregation would have turned out en masse, but, as it was, about thirty people, the majority of them ladies, were presenter, d commenced discussing the burning question. Just at this point of the proceedings a newspaper man entered and modestly sat down in a corner, but his modesty availed him nothing; his presence froze the burning question, and he en tered just in time to participate in an im promptu prayer that was started the minute his entrance became known. Singing hymns was largely indulged in, but evidently as a mild diversion from the mysterious whispering going on all the time. After this playful deception had been kept going for an hour or so, Rev. Hall pronounced a benediction, and to all intents "and purposes the meeting was over. During the lull In the proceedings the reverend gentle man was seen and seemed willing to im part information, but deprecated being quoted on the subject of his resignation. "1 think," he said, "they will do some thing to-night, but I don't care one way or the other what they do." He was then sharply called to the star chamber, nnd a lynx-eyed, Dundreary-appearing gentleman escorted the newspaper men the door, which he carefully and mysteriously bolted after their exit. . The whole proceedings iv this case are, to say the least, curious. Why such secrecy should enwrap such an innocent matter as the resignation of a person from his charge is one of those unsolv able things that are created for un known, but doubtless beneficent ends. It will now be in order to look about a year hence for the indignation resolu tions promulgated last night. A PLEASANT DAY OF IT Made by the Presbyterian Ladies' Missionary Meeting. The third annual meeting of the Woman's Presbyterial society of home missions of St. Paul Presbytery met yesterday in Andrew church on the "East side, and a large number were in attendance. The morning session was principally given up to greetings and prayer, in which Mrs. B. F. MacLoren led the opening devotional exercises, and Mrs. M. H. Welles gave the "Welcome," responded to by Mrs. A. W. Bingland. The afternoon exercises opened auspiciously, the chinch being full of ladies and young boys who took an active part in the pro gramme. After the reading of the Scriptures and prayer, Mrs. G. B. Met calf read an interesting paper on "Thoughtful Giving." Miss Josie M. Nicol recited in a very taking manner a pretty piece, and following her, fig urative! v speaking, the juveniles were given the floor. These little gentlemen acquitted themselves in a commendable manher,-and were frequently applauded. Among the little fellows there are many societies, and yesterday reports were read by the Alaskan Auxiliary band, the Golden Rule band, the Pearl Gath erers band, present with a handsome banner, and minster Missionary Boys' brigade. These latter made a very fine showing. Willie Nay read the report, which went to show that they are educating a colored boy down South. The cost is 550 a year, of which they have already subscribed §30. After wards Harry Teel, Harry Hume. Frank Burt, Frank I'omerov, Arthur Davis and Frank Polk, all bright little members of the brigade, gave short recitations. Bobert Dysart of the band of East St. Paul church, St. Paul, read flic report from his organiza tion. .Mrs. Ell Torrance in her report as secretary showed there were forty-six organizations — twenty -one of them ladies' societies, sixteen are bands, and nine Sabbath school organizations. There were present delegates from Du luth, Hastings, Bed Wing, Litchfield, St. Sroix Falls, White Bear and St. Paul. The state of the society was flourishing, as proved by the report of the treasurer, Mrs. D. B. Noyes, which goes to show that the total contributions for ISS7 were 195.37, as against §1,998.93 in 1886, and the showing ofthe missionary boxes in 1887 was §4,508.73, as against §2,150.80 during 1880. This was received with great ap plause and was of course very satis factory,showing a doubling ofthe funds in one short year. All the old officers were re-elected, so the ticket read thusly : President, Mrs. E. F. Pomeroy; first vice president, Mrs. T. A. Mac Curdy; second vice president, Mrs. A. W. Ring land; Duluth; corresponding secretary, Mrs. Ell Torrance; recording secretary, Mrs. A. N. Elliott. Resolutions were adopted thanking the ladies of Andrew Church for the ac commodation of the sacred edifice. The benediction was pronounced by Bey. Dr. Donelson, and that brought the afternoon session to a close. The church was handsomely decorated with flowers around the reading desk and on stands, and the touch of feminine hands could be seen everywhere, making the building bright and cheerful looking. At the evening session very pleasant and Interesting addresses were given by Drs. Mac Curdy, Patterson and Campbell on the subject of mission work, some excellent music was ren dered, and a very pleasant evening was enjoyed. To-day will be the last of the conference, and the business .. to be transacted will be altogether confined to foreign missions. AN EVENING OF PLEASURE. Civil Engineers Visit the College of Mechanic Arts of the Univer sity. .7 : : 7; The Minneapolis: society of civil en gineers and the St. Paul society met at the College of Mechanic Arts and Arti san's Training school of the state uni versity last evening, and were taken all through the building by Profs. Pike, Bard and lloag. The visit was a pleasant one and will be long remembered. About 7:30 the joint meeting was called to order by Prof. Pike, who made a short address, in which he outlined the work that was being done by the students and showed what a benefit it was to them. The party then started on a tour through the building. The mechanical drawing room was first visited, and many of tlie visitors expressed considerable surprise at the artistic and meritorious work shown them. The instrument room, where all the surveying instruments are kept, was next visited. Here the various methods used in surveying were ex plained and discussed. In this room wood carving is carried on, and many handsome specimens of work done by pupils were exhibited. From here the party went to the machine and vise shop, in the basement, where a force of student workmen was busily engaged in the manufacture of ma chinery, engines and the like. The scene was a lively one, and differed ma terially from that of the ordinary ma chine shop,in that everything was clean, the floors being white and free from stain. The party spent about half an hour in this room and then adjourned to the testing room, where materials are tested and comparative strength of various kinds of wood and iron are illustrated. The students at work in this room were Sam G. Neiter, B. L. Locreand John Morris. The test ing machine was called into use first on a piece of white pine scantling, 4x4 inches, and six and a half feet between rests. This stood a strain of 3,080 pounds before it' broke. Next a piece of common refined iron rod, one inch in thickness and eight inches between points, was placed in the testing machine and the power ap plied. The limit of elasticity was reached at 1-100 part of an inch. As the power kept increasing the iron bar kept gradually stretching out, and when 43,200 pounds had been marked it parted with a snap that might have been heard some distance away. When the. rod cooled down so that the broken edges might be touched, it was found that the break was nearly as smooth as it would have been had it been cut with a cold chisel. The visitors were shown various pieces of iron and wood which had been subjected to similar tests, and the va rious peculiarities pointed out. The foundry and the forges were next visited and everything .of interest pointed out. Among the gentlemen present from the Minneapolis society were Messrs. Sublette, Barr, Craig, Cris mau, Pike, Hoag, Pardee, Newman,* Turner, Begley, Banford and Capellan. St. Paul was represented by A. Johnson, A. Minister, S. D. Munson, W. A. Truesdell, A. O. Powell, C. L. Annus, A. A. Swenson, H. Fenstrom, A. 11. Hogeland, B. Hunt, B. J. Johnson, F. VV. McCoy, J. D. Esterbrook, W. W. Curtis and George Wilson. Everyone was unanimous, in declaring it was the most pleasant meeting of the kind that had ever been held. Stole Woolen Stockings. * About 8:30 last evening a young man seized a package of woolen stockings, which was fastened to a show case in front of the dry goods store of J. C. Harper & Co., 519 Washington avenue south, and in trying to get them loose pulled over the show- case, which, fall ing oh the stone pavement, was badly broken and the contents scattered over the sidewalk. He then ran up , Sixth avenue south, closely pursued by the proprietor of the store, and was finally arrested on Third street, near Fifth avenue south, by Officer Peter Fox after a desperate struggle, in which the of ficer was forced to use hi* club rather vigorously. YtY The Police Commission; - The police commission met yesterday but transacted no business. The final meeting of the board will be held Mon day, and the meeting for reorganization will be held Wednesday. "?- THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 30, 1883. HE WAS ''BOUNCED." V County Commissioner "Lennon Ex periences a Strange Sensation. . .. i The Nicollet house has been annoyed of late by the antics Of a religious en thusiast who has been in the habit of exhorting and singing, to the discomfort of the guests. The head porter, who is also the bouncer of the -hostelry, was given a description of the follow, who wears a fur collar on his overcoat and a slouch hat, and was instructed to "fire" him incontinently. Yesterday morning County Commissioner Lennon, who wears a fur collar and a slouch hat, entered the hotel for the purpose of get ting an early shave. The barbershop was not open,so he was loitering about, and was not a little astonished when he found himsel confronted by a six-footer, who remarked: "Now just amble out of here. You've been making enough trouble." "What do you mean? I'm a gentle man and I ," stammered the com missioner. The porter was a man of action rather than words, and the next instant Mr. Lennan felt himself sliding rapidly to wards the door. In spite of his strug gles he was speedily ejected, and told not to enter again. His anger and mor tification knew no bounds until matters were explained later in the day. WHAT ALIENS MAY OWN. The Law Governing the Owning of Lands by Non-Citizens. A number of communications having been received asking for information in regard to the law passed by the last leg islature restricting the ownership of real estate in this state to American cit izens, and limiting the quantity of land which corporations may hold, the GLOBE prints the following summary of the law, which contains all the information asked for: That it shall be unlawful for any person or persons, not citizens of the United States, or who have not lawfully declared their inten tions to become such citizens, or for any cor poration not created by or under the laws of the United States, or of some state or terri tory of the United States, to hereafter ac quire, hold or own real estate so hereafter acquired, or any interest therein in this state, except such as may be acquired by demise or inheritance, or in good faith in the ordinary course of justice in the collection of debts hereafter created, or the foreclosure of mort gages.

MARY WAS SATISFIED, But Canty Was Not, and Sues for His Share. Thomas Canty has commenced an ac tion against the Minneapolis, Lyndale & Minnetonka Hail way company for $1,000. He claims that Dec. 10 Mary A. Kinney took passage on one of the de fendant's trains at Washington avenue and rode to Twenty-ninth street; while alighting from the car it suddenly started, throwing her violently to the ground and seriously injuring her spine. She then hired the plaintiff in this ac tion to sue the defendant for 85,000 dam ages. Shortly after the suit had been commenced, the defendant came to said Mary A. Kinney and offered her $400 if she would dismiss the suit and agree to not pay this plaintiff any thing for the work he had done in bring ing the suit. The said Mary A. Kinney accepted their offer and dismissed the action without notifying the plaintiff, thereby defrauding and cheating him out of what he had justly earned, which was reasonably worth the sum of §1,(500. The plaintiff claims that the defendants engineered this whole scheme for the purpose of defrauding him. RUSTLED TO SOME EFFECT. A Ball Club on Top--The Next Grand Jury—Court Notes. The Sacred Heart Bustlers, a base ball club, obtained a judgment against the Yellow Medicine County Agricul tural society for the sum of §423.48. The plaintiffs sued for §400, which sum they claimed was offered by defendants as a prize to the base ball club which would succeed in winning the most games of a series to be played at the county fair at Granite "Falls, Minn., which was held last year.- The plain tiffs entered into this contest and won every game played, but the defendants refused to pay tliem the S4OO. The grand jury for the April term of court will be composed of the following persons: Peter Sutherland, lt. B. Thompson, James T. Chute, John T. Barnum, B. P. Bussell, Jr., Joseph 11.

Early yesterday morning Patrolman George Martin found, in the hallway of the notorious "McGregor's laundry," on First street ,north, the body of a child, dressed neatly. He at once sum moned Deputy coroner Spring, who re moved the body to * Connolly's morgue and held an examination, It was found that the little one, which must • have been about two months old, had died a natural death, and then left . where it was found, to save burial expenses.

Julius Schockens. the Victim— A < • Woman Supposed to Be at the jI : Bottom of It. I 3 1 Friends of Julius Schockens, who i lived for some six years in Minneapolis, 1 4 are in receipt of news from Spokane . Falls, W. T., to the effect that he was ,' stabbed in a bagnio at that place Satur day, March 17, receiving a wound from t • which he died the following Tuesday. *■ The Spokane Daily Chronicle of Wed- ■ nesday, March 21, says, concerning his ; death: . ■*** ;£-7 ;xxi.\xr ■ The cold, dead body of Julius Schockens lies in the hospital of the Sacred Heart. Death was caused by a knife wound on the > leftside. The fatal blow, whether accident ally or purposely administered.was struck an: \ Saturday night last at a bagnio known as No. ; 33, on Stevens street, between Main and ' Front. Except the dead man, no one was present but •a • woman ■ of- the town named Belle Earle, who claims to have known the deceased for the past seven years. Yes terday afternoon the injured man breathed his last at the hospital, the woman Earle being with him at the end. THE WOMAN WON'T INTERVIEW. Last night a Chronicle reporter endeavored to get an interview regarding the matter, but was unsuccessful. At noon to-day the reporter called at the house by previous ap pointment, but could get no statement from' the woman. Friends of the dead man have been questioned as to all the facts bearing on the case, and they know nothing except that the whole affair is wrapped in mystery. At 2 o'clock this afternoon tne reporter saw Coroner Penfield, who up to that time had no notice that an inquest was wanted. j To the reporter, according to what he has learned in searching for facts connected with the affair, he is of the opinion that for the good of the city an inquest should be held and a rigid inquiry made. Schockens had only been in the city about two weeks, during which time he was iv the employ of S. J. Holland. The deceased was about thirty-five years of age and conducted a wholesale liquor business at 1315 Washington av enue south, in partnership with W. Burnstein, under the firm name of J. Schockens & Co. Afterwards he ran a saloon at 42!) Washington avenue south. July 27 he went to Hurley, Wis., and engaged in the liquor business, but was burned out. He then went to St. Paul and opened a cigar store on Fifth street between Robert and Jackson streets. He left suddenly during the winter, and it appears he ,west, although his friends did not know his where abouts, lie came to Minne- . apolis in November, 1888, from Chicago, where he has a cousin, who is one of the firm of Levine & Co., liquor dealers. ' Another cousin, K. Wolfson, lives in Kansas City, and he has a number of relatives in St. Louis. ' The woman whom the Spokane Chronicle speaks of as Belle Earle, is undoubtedly Belle Currier, with whom the deceased lived while in Minneapo lis, at 42!) Washington avenue south. She also accompanied him to Hurley, where they kept house, and it is pre sumed, either accompanied or followed him to Spokane. She is a French woman, who was born and raised in Toronto. She was known to possess a dangerous temper, and the friends of the deceased think she may have been either directly or indirectly responsible for his death, notwithstanding it is as serted that Shockens before he died said she was in no way to blame.

Lipman, the leading man of Arthur Behan's company, is considered one of the handsomest young actors in the country. He was here last in support of Rose Coghlan. The sale of seats for Arthur Behan's en gagement at the Grand opera next week opens this morning at the box office. The company is indorsed as one of the strongest comedy organizations traveling. The People's theater had its sixth large audience of the week last evening, and the management is almost astonished at the un expected run of patronage upon what was cofidently expected to be the dullest week of the year. Notwithstanding the powerful cast and ex pensive company with which Arthur Behan will present Augustin Daly's comedies, "Nancy & Co.'.' and "Love in Harness," next week at the Grand opera house, prices will not be raised. Marriage licenses were issued yesterday to Frederick 11. Petty and Lazzatta Calmus, Charles S. Anderson and Emily Hagberg, Peter Samuelson and Ellen Swanson, Thomas T. Coppage and Joan Brodenc, Peter A. Peterson alnd Charotte Anderson. Why sneer at the vice presidential aspira tions of Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis? He is, intellectually and morally, a good many pegs above that fellow Gray, of Indiana. And in November, 1888, Minnesota may be of a great deal more use than Indiana to the Dem ocratic party.— Chicago News. .-58&5&J "Nancy & Company," the new comedy to be presented at the Grand next week, is an other of Daly's triumphs. The New York Times says: '"Nancy & Company,' a most delightful piece of unadulterated fun, as ably written as it is conceived, and refined as it is amusing. The play is acted with as near an approach to absolute perfection as it is possible to imagine." The Gustavus Adolphus society intend cel ebrating leap year by giving a grand ball at Harmonia hall to-morrow evening, March 31. The affair will be a military one, as the Swedish guards inteud cooperating. The invitation committee so far has met with great success, and therefore a large attend- ; ance is anticipated. Among those interested in the success of the ball are John Asplund, . Col. J. Landberg, P. W. Edman, John F. Peterson and C. C. Bennett. "Eustache Baudin" is growing in popular favor at each performance at the Pence opera house, and the audiences are uniformly large. The play is really a meritorious one. with a plentiful sprinkling of comedy and sentiment, while the cast is.in the main. most acceptable. The company has become easy in their lines, and the several characters are rendered very smoothly. The scenic , effects, ' especially the mountain scene and the grave yard scene, are remarkably good, aud assur edly reflects credit on the scenic artist. "Married Life," a sparkling comedy, will Ibe the attraction the coming week, when John Murray will appear in the cast. . j ■ A FEW PERSONAL OPINIONS. Police Commissioner Guile— l was very courteously invited by Mr. Janney to be present at the meeting of the com mission this morning, but was unable to avail myself of the invitation. \ Lt. Gov. Rice— The winter cholera . must be chargeable to the police com mission, because the Minneapolis people always pull together and . so many of them" have it. Politics? Well, what do you think of the old tickets? Sheriff Swensou— No one can say, but I may have a . hanging episode on my hands before my term expires. John W. Perkins— l am afraid if we nominate Capt. Snider for congress he ; will be defeated. There is not the least doubt but what Fletcher would poll more votes than :he could, and yet I doubt even if Fletcher could be elected. - But there is one man, who,7 if nomin ated, would run like a steer in a corn field, and that man is Frank F. Davis. There would be no doubt about his elec- . tion. : ' Edward J. Davenport, Clerk of ; Court —Since the newspapers have been j agi tating the question of whether persons who are foreign born, but whose parents took out their second naturalization pa pers while they, the children, -were minors, are required to be naturalized in order to own - real estate under the law passed by the last legislature, re stricting the ownership of land in this state to American citizens; and those who have declared their intention to be come such, imy ? office ? has qeen ' filled with persons who have concluded that ' they would be on the safe side, by tak ing out their first papers. - v c-? ; :C ■-' - ■ - ' ' - — ' - ETHICS OF THE AVENUE. The characteristic trait of the dudes is to subdue themselves in everything. The idea of displaying any emotion has always been scoffed down by these gentry. It has therefore been cause for great surprise lately what has been the reason for the unwonted *. ex citement among the callow youths who wear cape overcoats in this city. The reason is about as extraordinary as their general actions and amounts to a burn ing desire on their part to return thanks to the city council for the filthy condi tion of the public streets and crossings, ac it thereby gives them a glorious op portunity of studying the effulgent and iprismastic radiance of women's hose. It is all the rage now for the boys to study tjie mysteries beneath the skirts at the corners, and as long as four feet of snow in little mountains line the sidewalks women and maidens will have to hitch . their pretty petticoats with an upward jerk, and lo! the dudes goiutoecstacies at the glimpse of a pretty ankle, and oftener still a shapely limb that is sud denly displayed; and the women, sur mising the cause, flash fire from out their eyes, but smile be tween their teeth, for if ever there was a weakness that is almost universal it is the weakness of Women to show a pair of pretty ankles should they happily own such. The variety of stockings on exhibition is perfectly charming— beauties of silk, with clocks and flowers worked in by hand, and dainty garters that peep above humbler coverings of cotton and wool, and original in every respect for a woman to wear. * * * A Chesterfieldian "vag," who was also an extraordinary dwarf and cripple, approached people on Washington ave nue north last night, and, taking off nis hat, deprecated politely the trouble of intruding, but he would like to have some loose change if possible?

Paul Boynton Gets Lest on Lake Michigan. A GREAT BATTLE FOR LIFE. The Great Swimmer Gomes Near Losing His Life Among the Ice on the Lake. Chicago, March 29.— Capt. Paul Boynton, the noted swimmer, had an experience in Lake Michigan, Tuesday, that he thinks he will not forget for some time. The captain has grown heavy during the winter, and to reduce his flesh has recently been taking little pulls out into the lake in his rubber suit. Tuesday morning at 7 o'clock he left Fullerton avenue for, a swim to South Chicago and return, and met with the most thrilling adventure of his life, in which he battled for hours with a great ice floe, was carried many miles out in the lake, stripped of his navigat ing instruments and lost for fifteen hours in the cold, bleak waste of drifting ice, hanging clouds and straggling ducks and gulls. "When I entered the water at 7 o'clock," the captain said, "there was a fresh west wind. I swam about two miles, intend ing to clear the crib for a trip to South Chicago. Just about the limit of my run east I began to meet ice. I pushed through it for a time and then ran across some floes, onto which I climbed. Meanwhile a heavy sky had shut out all view of the sun and the wind had got very high. I struggled for a while and then ran into what I thought was a pocket. i PULLED THROUGH IT and came again to straggling floes. I must have fought them until 10 o'clock before I missed my compass. When J looked to get my bearings, having no ticed that the city had faded from view, I found the band which bound the com- Eass to my body had either been severed y a piece of ice or had become un buckled. It was gone. The sun was hidden and there was noth ing by which I could get my bearings. The water was cold and I had been in it so long I began to eet drowsy. Chills ran through my veins in quick succession, and 1 saw I must either pull out for somewhere or perish. I looked about and saw the field of ice was at my feet, I swam feet foremost— and then concluded I had only to pull to the ice to reach Chicago. So I started, and vigorously, too. For five hours I worked as I never did before. The wat er was heavy and lifeless. I had to fight for every inch I made. Chicago was still nowhere to be seen and I had no notion of the time of day. Then I changed my course about half way round and pulled hard for a while. The ice gathered about me again and when night came I WAS FRIGIITKXED again for my life. Sometimes I could dodge the drift, at others I climbed upon the cakes and crossed them. When the moon rose I got a flash of a view of it and then saw my mistake. 1 had crossed the field in the morning when I entered what I thought was a pocket and all the long pull of the day with the ice at my feet had driven me toward Michigan. The turn I had taken had sent me south. 1 set about and pushed from the moon. At 10 o'clock 1 saw a faint light in the sky and an hour later perceived it was from the furnaces at South Chi cago., Then I got my bearings and sighted the lights at the crib. I pulled up there at midnight and blew my bu gle. I must have called a half dozen times before an answer came. Then Capt. McKay answered my signal and I. shouted 'Crib, ahoy.' 'Aye, who's there?' the captain answered. 'I must stay here to-night.' 'Pull round to the port.' When 1 got there they dropped a bit of rope, into which I fixed my foot and they then drew me up. . They gave me refreshments and put me to Tied. , Capt. McKay says when 1 left the ice at night it was fully fifteen miles from shore and I think he is about right, be cause the swim in would take the time used. I have swam greater distances but that was the first time I ever was lostjand the battle with the ice and cold was a more thrilling episode than 1 care to experience again." am MINNEAPOLIS REAL ESTATE The following real estate transfers were filed yesterday in the oflice of the register of deeds : Charles McCabc to William M McCabe, 10 acres of the NW "A sec lD.town 28, range 24 .3,000 Clara M Kramer to Jessie Bichardson, Its 15, 10, 17 aud 18. blk 7, Kirkwood Park... 800 Charles H Oilman to E II W Smith, It 10, blk 1, Longfellow Park add GOO Harris F Park to Kewis J Bodner, lt 14, blk 3, Steele's Lake, Harriet Park 500 John J Dissetto to Mary J Swensen, It 3, blk 5, Excelsior add 5,000 Francis B Bailey to James T Harrison, lt 15, Pleasant View, Lake Minne tonka 800 Charles E Ford to Itobert W Hayes, lt 7, blk 7, Excelsior add.. 5,000 Celina M Kramer to Jessie Richardson, Its 12, 13 aud 14, blk 7, Kirkwood Park......... 600 Prudence Babcock to Lew J Clark, It 5, blkl, Windom's add 7,000 William C Marshall to Ira W Lipe, lt 9, blk 2, Calhoun Boulevard add.. 250 Isaiah Dubuque to Farwell W Merriam, It 1, blkW, Phillips' add 450 Jacob O B Miller to Joseph Krieg, lt 4, blk 10, North Minneapolis 500 John II Fohvell to Thomas Eastman, It 7, blk (J, George Gal pin's add 0,000 Florence E Elwell to Jacob Maag, Its 2 and 3.
