» Candidate Sherman has refused,
It Is said, to "chip in" to help out the
Republican clubs in Ohio. Perhaps,
however, this is simply a Foraker in

enough money out of politics to contrib

The report of the committee of the
underwriters' union, which has been
engaged in making a thorough inquiry
as to the best means of checking fire
ravages in this city, contains several
pertinent suggestions, upon which the
proper authorities would do well to act
with the least possible delay. It might
naturally be presumed that the under
writers would be on the side of ex
cessive caution; but, except in one in
stance, there does not seem to be room
in their report for criticism of that kind.
The most important point dwelt upon
is the necessity for larger mains and
more hydrants in the wholesale district.
There is no doubt but that this point is
well taken. It would be manifestly
more appropriate to have a sixteen-inch
main on Sibley street, for instance, than
on Broadway, instead of a six-inch main
as at present It is better that there
should he a surplus of water rather than
too little. Throughout the wholesale
district the water, supply seems to be
inadequate, and the putting in of
twelve-inch mains, as the committee,
which certainly ought to be perfectly
informed on the subject, suggests, is a
work not of advisability but of necessity.
No one could blame the insurance
companies if, after the disastrous fires
of the past few years, they declined fur
ther risks in the wholesale district, but
such a refusal every merchant would
regard as a calamity. The suggestions,
therefore, which the companies' repre
sentatives- make are reciprocal In their
benefits. It would be better that they
should be followed before the compa
nies make compliance with them essen
tial to their continuation in business.
So far as the requirement of additional
apparatus in the wholesale district is
concerned, with the exception of the
automatic standpipe, the suggestion to
that effect may be . regarded as easily
open to question. Outlying districts,
however, doubtless need better protec
The report is thorough and reasona
ble. Compliance with the suggestions
in the main would involve no srreat ex
pense, and in the case of increased hy
drants, larger mains and the placing of
all overhead wires in subway conduits,
would, without any doubt, redound de
cidedly to the advantage of the city's
business interests.

The general public, which is gravely
discussing, vigorously condemning or
warmly praising the recent production
of our own Ignatius Donnelly, en
titled The Great Cryptogram, seems to
have missed the real point of the work.
It is, of course, of the utmost public in
terest as to whether 'Shakespeare
really did write the plays which bear
his name, and the attention which any
thing bearing upon the subject excites
is natural enough. ~ ;/-
But, whatever theory may be evolved,
and however ingeniously it may be sup
ported, the absence of documentary evi
dence one way or the other will prevent
the definite settlement of the question
in favor of either side. As an ingen
ious mechanism Mr. Donnelly's cipher •
may be worthy of all praise, but as per
forming the work for which he gravely
asserts it is intended, of its trustworthi
ness he has persuaded but few. But it
may be doubted whether our Ignatius
ever expected it to accomplish all he
claimed for it.
The whole point of the production is
right here: Mr. Donnelly recognized |
the wide-spread interest which the
Shakespearean and anti-Shakespearean
controversy excited, for the question
was old before he was born. He also
saw that the interest centered among
reading people, who were willing and
able to pay for any further light, or
alleged light, upon the subject, and
that these people were scattered all
over the world. It was quite apparent
that a fortune awaited any man who
could lay before these people something
new upon the subject that bore the
marks of genius and plausibility. This
was his opportunity, and The Great
Cryptogram was the natural outcome
of it. He foresaw that it would be a
financial success, and it has been.
Therefore, whatever biting things the
critics may say regarding its literary
excellences or shortcomings, our
Ignatius may console himself, in his
counting over of American dollars and
English sovereigns, with the reflection
that the object for which the book was
written has been abundantly and satis
factorily achieved.
Every one who is familiar with the
course of events as exhibited in recent
presidential campaigns remembers how,
though he was committed to the support
of Hon. John Sherman, presidential
lightning finally struck the lamented
Garfield. No one is more familiar
with this episode than blatant; Fora
ker, of Ohio. Foraker goes to Chi
cago as a delegate also committed to the
support of the Hon. John Sherman.
Foraker, unlise Garfield, has
open presidential aspirations, which a se
lect few of his friends are forwarding
by every means in their power. Though
professing the most ardent friendship
for Ohio's candidate, Foraker is not
without hope that the GARFIELD
lightning may strike again in
the Ohio delegation, and that
he may be the man who will enable his
tory to repeat itself. Not only that,
but it also looks as though FoRAKEB
and his friends were doing everything
in their power to bring about the result
which they hope will take place. Al
ready stories of the disloyalty of the
Ohio delegation to Sherman, stories
calculated to weaken his prestige in the
convention, have been circulated, and
other indications that a Foraker bu
reau is in full operation are not want
A certain J. E. Howard, who is re
ported, in a Cincinnati paper, to be a
prominent resident of Sherman's dis
trict, declares that he is for Foraker
for president and that he will be the
nominee of the convention. Even
granting, however, that the Republicans
are all at sea for a candidate, they are
not yet so hard driven a» to accept the
insignificant Foraker.
But Inasmuch as the election is cer
tain to go against them anyhow, it
might be just as well for them to allow
him to have his way, if for no other rea
son than to show him under what an
avalanche of ballots the people of the
country would bury him and his ill
founded pretensions.
Even if the fact that ail Wall street,
which dominates the Republican wire
pullers, who in turn will dominate the
Republican convention, is dead set
against the nomination of Judge Gresh
am for president, were not sufficient to
throw him completely out of the race,
there is another reason which would ac- j
complish that end.
Judge Gresham holds the opinion
that this country, with its wealth of de- j
veloped and undeveloped resources, is a
country for the people and not for the
monopolists. He does not believe that
the producers, the men who earn their
living by the sweat of their brow, and
whose energy has made the country
what it is, should pay a tax for the priv
ilege ot living to the idle monopolists.
He believes not only that the burden- '
some taxes should be reduced, but that I
every article which the producer desires \
to use, whether in the way of necessa- '
ries or of comforts, should undergo no I
artificial increment in price. In other I
words, he is an out and out free-trader. j
The Republican platform, on the
other hand, must be so formulated as to
meet the approval of the monopolists
upon whom the managers must depend
for the sinews of war. It must declare
in favor of the continuance of the tax
which the people have paid until they
have become almost desperate. It must
assert, under specious pretenses, the
right of the few to tax the many. It
must, in short, continue to be as it has
always been, an expression hostile to
every interest of the people.
Upon such a platform Judge GRESH
AM would not stand if he could. That
one fact willa be found all-sufficient to
preclude the possibility of his becoming j
the nominee; and the greater honor is
his because of it.

With a lifting of eyebrows, a shrug
ging of shoulders, a deprecating wave
of the hand, many Eastern lawyers have
made it a point, when interviewed
regarding Mr. Fuller's appoint
ment as chief justice, to declare,
as Paul once did upon a noted
occasion, "We do not know the
man." Then, with a sneering smile and
an ironical inflection, they continue,
"An obscure Western . lawyer, is he
That's where the shoe'pinches. That
the president should have ignored their
exceptional abilities in choosing a
man for the place was bad enough^iut
that he should | have gone to the West,
and to Chicago, New York's rival, above
all places, for the chief justice, was an
indignity almost surpassing belief. Then
as they come to inquire into the matter,
they discover that the president's choice

it has too frequently been the habit of
self-satisfied Eastern men, men of busi
ness or professional men, to sneer at the
West as a Nazareth out of which no
good thing can come, viewed from an
Eastern standpoint. The fact is that in
every branch of commerce, in every pro
fession, the West : possesses men who
not only can teach their Eastern breth
ren a thing or two, but do it every day
in the year.
It is not creditable to Eastern intelli
gence that this incredulity and igno
rance regarding anything Western
should continue to exist, and the ap
pointment of Chief Justice Fuller
may do much toward removing it.

A. recent occurrence has gone far to
relieve the code duello as practiced in
France from the imputation of harmless
burlesque and empty grandiloquence
which Mark Twain and other humorous
.writers have cast upon it. A duel has
been fought and a man has . been killed
—a very serious thing for the man who
was not of the victory, and quite a
thorough vindication of the danger
lying in sharp swords and loaded pistols
in the hands of excitable Frenchmen
whose honor has been wounded. But
though this vindication may be very
satisfactory to the great body
of dueling Frenchmen, it can
not be very satisfactory to the
man who has lost his life in bring
ing it about. In fact, the possibility of
a recurrence of a similar episode will in
all liklihood do more to bring the art
of duelling in disfavor in France than
all the argument which has ever been
brought to bear. But if some means of
avenging honor which has been dam
aged must exist, there is yet a means
whereby that end may be attained with
out the unpleasant risk attending the
use of sword or pistol. The recent visit
of a distinguished Bostonian—
van by name— should have given the
French the cue to this substitute.
Let them replace the rapier with the
boxing gloves as the weapon .of the
duelist, and the dueling art, which
now bids fair to languish, will be re
stored to its pristine vigor without ac
companying danger, while decidedly
more fun will be afforded the numerous
spectators, including the representa
tives of the press, who are a necessary
adjunct of every properly conducted
French duel.

It will take 412 votes to nominate a
candidate at the Chicago convention,
and the Omaha Bee (Rep.) thinks that

There are apparently three strings to

States, or a member of the cabinet."
Of tne Harrison boom the Indianapo

boom is not so buoyant as it might be."

A Rig Scheme.
Chicago, May 7.— Before the close of
navigation this season, it is announced
to-night, the foundation for one of the
most colossal lightering stations and
general warehouses in existence will
lie . laid at the mouth of the
Chicago river on land con
trolled by the Illinois Central rail
road. The cost will approximate §2,
--000.000, which will be furnished by the
railroad company to a Chicago-Buffalo
syndicate that is to have the manage
ment of the enterprise, upon
the payment of a stipulated
low rate of interest on the money in
vested. The lightering will enable the
largest steamers to enter the river with
the bulk of their cargo, and the ware
house scheme will aid the Illinois Cen
tral road to gobble up business which
otherwise might find an outlet over
other roads.
* Rusk's Complimentary Vote.
Special to the Globe.
La Crosse. Wis., May 7.— Parties
here who have undertaken to secure the
delegation from this county and con
gressional district favorable to Blame
for president after giving Rusk a com
plimentary vote, have made a canvass
of the delegation to-day. It is found
that several are willing Rusk should
have a complimentary vote.but in every
case it is stipulated the vote shall be
strictly complimentary. Two think it
foolish to weaken the influence of the
delegation by the favorite son business ;
one only is out and out for Rusk. Sev
eral of the delegation express admira
tion for Blame, but only two desire to
see him nominated. The preference is
largely for Gresham, with some prefer
ence for Depew and John Sherman.

The Northern Pacific ' Downed by

Washington, May 7.— The secretary
of the interior to-day rendered a deci
sion in the case of the Northern Pacific
Railroad company vs. Z. S. Martin, of
the Fargo, Dak., land district, in which
he holds that the government had a
right to create a reservation for military
purposes from lands lying within the
limits of the withdrawal on the general
route for the Northern Pacific railroad,
and that this act of reservation by the
executive department, excepted * the
lands from the grant and they were
therefore public lands. The reservation
in question (Fort Seward) was made by
Gen. Hancock, but was not approved by
the president until two years thereafter.
The decision holds that the action of the
president related back and created the
reservation as of the action of Gen. Han
cock. _

ten days it has been evident to close ob
servers that Merriam stock was going
down, and that the tight had settled to a
contest between McGill and Scheffer.
There has been no enthusiasm to the
Merriam boom, and prominent poli
ticians have fought shy of its skirts for
fear of incurring a taint that might
lessen their own chances for future
success. The field is now open for Mr.
Merriam to deny his reported with
drawal or by his silence give evidence
that it is time.
Merriam out of the way means no
trouble for Scheffer in Ramsey county.
Now conies the report from Minneap
olis that Capt. Snider has cot the Hen
nepin county delegation solid and that
Loren Fletcher can not carry it. This
means a serious blow to the
McGill men, for it is understood
that Snider is for Scheffer. Various
charges are made against Fletcher by
the campaigners of Minneapoles. They
say that he is penurious, won't shell
out any money, and tries to dictate
everything. He is accused of working
Langdon et al. for the cash while he
s tanus back and hopes to get the glory.
The young men of Hennepin county
are booming Snider hard and claim that
Fletcher.can not get the congressional
nor the gubernatorial delegations. The
loss of Hennepin and Ramsey counties
means Fletcher's overwhelming defeat,
and a set-back for McGill of a very seri
ous nature. The McGill men all along
have been talking of having the state
convention held late, but now, in the
face of the growing Scheffer boom, and
with the knowledge that it will be
stronger in September than it is now it
is understood that they will hustle and
issue an early call and try to save- their
candidate. A late convention defeats
.McGill, and the Scheffer allies know it.
A Globe reporter, nosing about the
Merchants hotel yesterday afternoon,
discovered on the first floor front a
pretty little room, with an alcove,
where, all on the quiet, Scheffer head
quarters have been opened. The rooms
are in charge of C. D. Baker, of Fergus
Falls, and they are filled with alliance
pamphlets, circulars, addresses, maps
and other campaign literature, such as
in his leisure moments Mr. Scheffer de
lights to con. Thunderbolts against
monopoly, machine rule, high tariff and
the railroads are stored there ready for
i discbarge as the . occasion demands.
The discovery of these carefully con
cealed quarters and the material stored
there indicates that the Scheffer men
are, in deadly earnest, and that McGill
must fur lit quick or lose. ->/V •;>-!'.
As indicated by the introduction to
this sere. d. the Globe has good war
rant in noting that the withdrawal of
Merriam, the loss of Hennepin county
by Fletcher and the already opened
headquarters of Scheffer denote that it
is by no means as certain as it was that
McGill will be the Republican nominee.
Enthusiastic St. Paul Friends
Wish to Send Him to the Chi
cago Convention.
The banking office of Albert Scheffer
looked more like a campaign headquar
ters yesterday afternoon than what it
really is. Gen. Mark Flower was
waltzing about, but when questioned
declared that it was not for political ef
fect. "I am not for Scheffer or any
man this year." he whispered, and tied".
Joseph E. Osborne looked affectionately
up into Mr. Scheffer's face as he chatted
of the delayed spring. Messrs. Lowen
stein~and McDonald; of the Republican
county committee, dropped in, and all
| adjourned to a back room. From the
J group it was learned that St. Paul's can
i clidate for a district delegate to the Chi
j cago will probably be W. J. Fieaney.
i Mr. Freaney conducted the late city
campaign, and for his valor, and the fact
that he is young and a popular man. his
brother Republicans propose to make
him a district delegate. He is said
to be anti-Blame. C. R. McKenny, of
North St. Paul, mayor of that corpora
tion and an editor, is a candidate for
1 delegate-at-large. lie is built on the
plan of 15. G. Evans, very sanguine, and
a young Republican. There are indica
tions that the McGill and Scheffer peo
ple will have a tilt in the convention,
let alone the Blaine-Greshain row brew
ing. Mr. Wheelock's name is rarely
used now for delegate-at-large, although
the boom for it still exists in a certain
conservatory— kept carefully from the
frost. " /
The Doctor Getting Up a Big Dele
gation for St. Louis and Himself.
In confirmation of the Globe's publi
cation some time ago of the personal
boom being worked up for Dr. Ames
for vice president, and if he does not
get that for governor, the following let
ter is submitted:
Headquarters Democratic Com
mittee on Transportation* of the
Algonquin* Club, Minneapolis,
Minn., April IS, 1888.— committee
have now well under way arrangements
whereby all the Democrats and their
i friends who wish to attend the Demo
cratic national convention at St. Louis,
Mo., June 5, 1888. will be afforded ex
ceptional advantages in directness of
route and superior train accommoda
tions. It has occurred to the committee
that many Democrats throughout Min
nesota and the Northwest would be
glad to embrace the opportunity of
what promises to be one of the most in
teresting and important gatherings the
national Democracy ever held. Our
friends will come to St. Louis inspired
by. the splendid victory of 1884, and
with a well-grounded assurance that the
nominee of this convention will be
triumphantly elected to the presidency.
Large and enthusiastic delegations will
be present from every state in the
Union, and Minnesota should not lag
behind. Nothing would do more to give
to Minnesota her deserved place and
weight in the national councils of the
party than the advent at this conven
tion of a large, enthusiastic and repre
sentative body of Democrats. You will
not only have a delightful journey, a
warm welcome from the citizens of St.
Louis, and the pleasure of witnessing
the proceedings of the convention, but
you will do the party a valued service.
The committee on transportation is sin
cerely desirous of seeing the above sug
gestions carried out, aud will take great
pleasure in rendering every assistance
to those who may wish to join us. As
before stated, we now suggest— and
(Strongly ere— every Democrat who can
•spare the time, to attend. The rate of
one fare for the round trip from St. Paul
or Minneapolis to St. Louis— sls.Bs,
either direct or by way of Chicago
been made by the - railroads. Send that
amount by check, draft or money order
to John R. Everard, treasurer of com
mittee on transportation, 338 . Nic
ollet avenue, Minneapolis, : Minn.;
a receipt for the amount will
be sent you at once, and ticket will fol
low shortly thereafter. If you desire
sleeping car accommodations, write the
treasurer as above and they will be re
served for you; The sooner the com
mittee are advised how many will go,
the better can preparations be made to
accommodate all. We should be glad to
.make it necessary to secure a -'special
convention train," and hope we shall he
able to do so. To make our arrange
ments a certainty, it is necessary that
the amount of fare should accompany
applications, as only in this way can we
be absolutely sure of the extent of the
accommodations we need provide.
Let us all unite to make this a gala ex
cursion to the national convention and
a grand rally of the rank and file of the
sturdy Democracy of the Northwest.
Let us hear irom you soon and favora
bly. Such an opportunity is not likely
to occur again in the near future. Take
it. Yours for success,
A. A. Ames, chairman; John R. Ev
erard, treasurer; Charles A. Cornman,
John 11. Long, George G. Jacoby— Com
This letter has been sent to all parts
of the state with the view of working
up a large delegation to follow the doc
tor in his triumphant course. It is, of
course, in the expectation that he will
be elected a delegate to the convention.
It is the starting movement in his cam
paign for governor, and will be boomed
higher or killed in the convention of
May .17. The doctor is nothing if not
original, and he is after glory or the
grave. ;•"

Mr. Doran tells the Democracy of this
state, through the St. Paul Globe, that
lie and Ames cannot board at the same
hotel this year. He is unalterably op
posed to Ames going as a delegate to
St. Louis, and it the doctor heads the

F/nfc to let a^ a -* in tne Globe are seen by
riUl* th« most people. : y~.- ,
Politicians were p -titty thick about
the Ryan' yesterday, and in one group
were Secretary Joel P. Heatwole, of the
Republican state central committee;
Supt. D. E. Myers, of the State Reform
atory; John Cooper, of St. Cloud; Hon.
AY. R. Merriam; and Senator Henry
Keller, of Sauk Center. Numerous con
fidential interviews were indulged in,
and there was a continuous buttonhol
ing during the afternoon, and especially
after the arrival of Mr. Merriam.
The latter was non-committal, how
ever, on the subject of congressional or
gubernatorial aspirations, and, like the
clam, kept his mouth tightly closed. Mr.
Cooper, on the other hand, was anxious
and willing to talk politics, and espec
ially regarding the outlook for a suc
cessor to Hon* Knute Nelson in the
Fifth district.
* *
"There is no doubt that Mr. Nelson is
sincere in his determination not to run
for congress again," said Mr. Cooper,
"and the present indications are that
ex-Lieut. Gov. Barto will receive the
nomination. Only three names have
been mentioned in connection with
this place— Messrs. Steams, Comstock
and Barto— for Senator Stockman
has never seriously contemplated
making a run tor the nomination.
It has been arranged to have the con
gressional nominating convention, meet
ing shortly after the adjournment of the
convention, called for next Saturday, to
choose delegates to the state convention
for presidential delegates, and it will
undoubtedly be determined this month
who will succeed Hon. Knute Nelson.
A nomination is equivalent to an
election in the Fifth district and
the friends of Mr. Barto are sanguine
that he will be the successful candidate.
He is popular with all classes, Scandi
navians, Irishmen and Americans, and
next to the present representative at
Washington from the Fifth district his
campaign would evoke more enthusiasm
than that of any other candidate whose
name lias been mentioned.
* *
"Those are my sentiments," inter
rupted Supt. Myers, "and it seems to be
a foregone conclusion that Mr. Barto is
the coining man. He has made a good
record among the voters and is known
to be one of the boys, and if nominated
lie will go through the Fifth district like
wildfire. 1 am not actively engaged in
politics, but I would do my share of the
work towards electing Gov. Barto as
our representative in congress."
* *
"We will hold our county convention
at Northfield next Saturday," said Joel
Heatwole, "and until that time it is
problematical who will be sent to the
Republican convention, which meets
the lot li lust, in this city. There has
been nothing determined upon as yet
regarding the date tor holding the con
vention to nominate a state ticket, and
it will be time enough to consider that
question after the Chicago delegation is
disposed of.
"It remains for my friends to say
whether or not I will he a member of
the convention to select those delegates,
and I have not made any extraordinary
exertions to induce them to vote for me
at the county gathering."

Col. A. F. Rockwell, chief quarter
master of the department of Dakota, had
another title conferred upon him yes
terday by telegraph. A message was
received from Philadelphia announcing
the arrival of Samuel A. Crozer, Jr.,
who is a grandson of the colonel, and
the latter could not refrain from spread
ing the good news among his host of
friends, and the telegram was pretty
well handled before nightfall. Mr.
Crozer, Sr., is well known in St. Paul as
the manager of the Edison Electric
Light company, and congratulations are

Invitations have been extended by the
St. Paul Rapid Transit company to the
leading business men of the Twin
Cities to visit South St. Paul to-morrow
afternoon and witness the workings of
the new electric railway, which
it is proposed to construct be
tween the two cities. Half a mile of
the track has been completed and
put in position on a trestle work at a
cost of ?30,000, and it is the intention of
the promoters of the enterprise to re
ceive if possible a franchise for an ele
vated road and begin work at once.
Should success crown their efforts it is
proposed to build the tracks upon iron
supports the same as are used in New
York city on the Sixth avenue and other
lines and the backers of the new road
have unlimited capital behind them. All
that they desire is to show the- feasibility
of the scheme.and for that purpose tomor

governor of Minnesota, the mayors and
councils of the Twin cities and repre
sentative business men of the North
"She" at the Grand Witnessed hy
a Large Audience.
11. Rider Haggard's weird "She,"
probably the most unique of
the numerous freaks which the
contemporary stage offers, .was
given its initial presentation in
this city at the Grand last evening in
the stage garb of William A. Brady.
Popular appreciation of the work of the
great romancer was clearly illustrated
by the extraordinary attendance, the
audience being the most numerous seen
at the Grand this season.
While the production of last evening
may very properly be regarded as a
genuine theatrical novelty, a veracious
chronicle 'would not say that the ver
sion of Mr. Brady is a satisfactory stage
copy of Haggard's remarkable work.
Still the representation was followed by
the audience with interest and curiosity.
The comedy elements, generally sup
posed to be an essential feature
of a play, and supplied in the Gillette
dramatization by Martin Brown, the
dealer in Waterbury clocks, is
lacking in this version, as is
the music which flecks nGillette's.
The prologue to the play is a scene in
Holly's studio, and Act 1 opens on the
deck of an Arab dhow. The cave of the
Aniahagger and the - hideous hot pot
dance are shown in the second
act. In act three is represented
the underground house of "She,"
and acts three and four . pass
in the chasm of the rocking stone and
the cave of the fire of life. There is an
occasional moment of thrilling interest
in the action, but most of
the dramatic situations were marred
by bungling stage hands. George P.
Webster's Holly and Miss Char
lotte Tittell's She are commend
able, their efforts to body forth
Haggard's luxuriant imagination be
ing quite acceptable. Miss Laura
Biggar's Ustane was passable, as
were Miss Margaret Marshall's Buena
and William A. Brady's Job. The cos
tumes are in keeping with Haggard's
designs, but the scenery and appoint
ments utilized give rise to a suspicion
of the cheap and the ridicu
lous. "She" is the literary-dra
matic equivalent of a distressing
case of delirium tremens, and like Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is inclined to en
gender a feeling of horror. The music
in it will never arrive at the distinction
of being whistled in the street, yet the
piece is worth seeing.
The advance sale of seats for the Man
tell engagement opens this morning.
A copy of Haggard's "She" will be
presented to every lady attending the
Wednesday matinee at the Grand.
"Gov. McGill is preparing to appoint

keeps a fruit, cigar and confectionery
shop on South Third Street, above Olive,
came tearing down Myrtle street to the
union depot yesterday about noon, mak
ing for the Duluth dock, with the evi
dent intention of throwing himself in

Glenn on, who were" standing at the
northend of the depot at the time, made
a dash for him, and caught him just as
he was crossing the railroad tracks. It
was with the utmost difficulty that he
was restrained and finally taken in the
patrol wagon to the county jail for safe
keeping. When first captured he said:
"A man in Minneapolis told me this
was going to happen." A formal com
plaint having been made by Chief
Shortall, a commission will be convened
at the office of Judge Lehmicke this
morning to examine the question of his
insanity. Epileptic fits have been of
long standing with him. and his condi
tion grows worse with each attack.
During the Gospel Army craze last

Are Not Unanimous.
Chicago, May The "advocates of

being unanimous regarding the pro

to have lost caste with the more radical
faction by accepting commutation of the
death sentence. To a reporter, this aft

Parsons as editor of the Alarm, de

is, if one more layman had voted for
