TWO NOTED BURGLARS!
WHO ONCE WORKED ST. PAUL. Read the Thrilling- Story as Told by a Well-Known Detective IN FRIDAY GLOBE ! VOL. X YOUNG IVIENJ3ET LEFT Dld-Timers Will Capture the Wisconsin Republican Convention. And Jerry Rusk Will Be the Favorite Candidate for President. Crookston Democrats Come Out for Cleveland and Tariff Reform. Clay County Democrats Are Strong* Against Ames and Doran. Special to the Globe. Madison, Wis., May Beyond a doubt Jerry Rusk will be nominated for president by the Wisconsin Repub licans to-morrow. About half the dele gates are in the city to-night, and seductive language from the lips of want-to-be delegates is being poured Into the ears of the rank and tile in the true old-fashioned style. From the out look to-night the convention will be any thing but a young men's conven tion, despite the fact that the party bosses would like to make it appear so, and the same crowd that always attends the party conventions is here in all its glory, and the few young men appear sadly out of place. A number of the young men from the "Capitol crowd" circulated among the delegates at the Park hotel to-night, and to a stranger it might have appeared that there were some young men delegates, but there was a notable difference in the looks of tiie crowd when a negro minstrel band started to play in front of the hotel, and the "kids," with a good share of the gray heads from the rural districts, fol lowed the band off" to the theater. Ira B. Bradford, of Eau Claire, will be tem porary chairman of the convention, This was decided on by the centra] com mittee to-night, to give Mr. Bradford time to prepare his speech. Candidates for delegates at large are as thick as flies in summer time. Senator John O. Spooner will, without doubt, head the delegation and present Jerry's name to the national convention. Henry C. Payne, of Milwaukee.is considered to be another. As to the other two delegates, there is where SOME FUN WILL COME In. n. O. Fairchild, of Marinette, an nounced early in the afternoon his will ingness to sacrifice his poeketbook to represent the state at Chicago. From the Second district comes an interesting state of affairs. Ogden H. Fethers, of Janesville, the silver-tongued orator, and J. X. Quarles, of Racine, who is a rival of Fethers on the silver-tongued business, both got left in the district convention, and, consequeutly,have been laying wires to secure an "at large" plum. It is reported to-night that Quarles has gracefully withdrawn and is urging the selection of Fethers. There are other candidates, but the Selection lies between the above five. Enough gubernatorial timber to supply the entire Norrthwest is in the city to-night. Hod Taylor, of Hudson, the blue-eyed chairman of the central committee; George C. Ginty, of Chip pewa Falls, and E. C. McFetridge, of Beaver Dam, are the most prominent. Hoard, the "Jersey" candidate, is not yet here, but his boom is getting along very fine with the farmers, so much so, in fact, that it is worrying the other candidates considerably. The conven tion will, without any doubt, be clamor ously enthusiastic for Rusk. After Rusk the Wisconsin delegation will sup port Gresham. Henry C. Paine will be elected chairman of the new central committee, which the convention is to choose. THE FAVORITE SON. Gov. Rusk First anil Gresham Afterwards. Special to the Globe. Eau Claire, Wis. May B.— Michael Griffin, of Eau Claire, chairman of the district committee, was chosen chair man of the Republican congressional district committee this afternoon, and Walter Hauser, of Buffalo, secretary. Mr. Griffin, in an address, said at no time since the election of Lincoln had there been such reason to regard with solicitude tlie future of the government, which was drifting from the old strong holds while the great results of the war for freedom were being frittered away. All counties were fully represented, except Burnett. Griffin had refused to be a candidate for delegate. James L. Lindermen, of Osseo, Trempeleau county, and James O'Neill, of Neillsville, Clark county, were elected delegates to the national convention. The first choice of each for president is Gov. Rusk. Neither express a second choice, but O'Neill is rather favorable to Gresham. N. C. Foster, of Fairchild, and L. S. 'fainter, of Menomonie, were elected alternates.. On motion, Currie G. Bell, of Bayfield, was unanimously recommended for presidential elector and Senator Spooner for delegate at large, although Mr. Herrick, of Hudson, said the St. Croix delegation had ad vices from the senator that he would prefer some other choice. An informal ballot, which it was expressly provided should not be construed as conveying instructions to the delegates, was taken on second choice after Rusk, who was conceded to be the convention's first choice for president, resulting: Gresh am 33, Blame 20, Sherman 2, Depew 2, Lincoln 1. Vacancies in the district committee were filled by the election of J. C. Chapman, of Bayfield, and E. L. Boothby, of St. Croix. Menomonie was fixed on as the place of meeting of the next congressional nominating conven tion. SOLID FOR RUSK. Delegates Instructed to Work and Vote for Him. Special to the Globe. La CROSSE, Wis., May B.— The Re publican convention for the Seventh congressional district was held at Sparta to-day. Two delegates to the national convention were chosen— L. S. Fisher, of Sparta, and D. F. Jones, of Richland Center. Oscar F. Temple was chosen elector. Resolutions denouncing the Democratic tariff idea and favoring pro tection to American industries were adopted. The most important resolu tion was one eulogizing Gov. Rusk and directing the delegates to support him in the convention as a candidate for president. Tiie governor's friends do not regard this as merely a compli mentary vote, they expect the delegates to vote and work for him on the theory that he is fully in the field as a candi date and expecting the nomination. The delegates who were willing he should have a complimentary vote were given no voice in the convention. There is a great deal of dissatisfaction, especially on the part of the delegates from this county. MINNESOTA CONVENTIONS. Delegates Chosen to the Coming State Gatherings. Special to the Globe.

The delegates were instructed forjudge Start for congress. There was but a small attendance, a number of towns not being represented. The convention, not being satisfied with its proportions, decided that the basis of representation in the next convention should be the vote cast, for secretary of state at the last election, the chair man stating it would not do to have it on -the vote for Blame, McGill or Lovely. Htfß FARIBAULT COUNTY. Special to the Globe. Blue Earth City, Minn., May S.— In spite of the weather the Democratic county convention which met here to day, pursuant to call, was by far the largest and most enthusiastic conven tion that ever assembled together in Faribault county.

Reso lutions were adopted indorsing Cleve land's administration and his tariff message, in favor of reducing the sur plus by lowering the duties on the necessaries of life, and against reducing the taxes on whisky and tobacco. They also indorsed Knute Nelson's action on the tariff, and declared it to be in accord with the principles of the Democratic party. The sentiment of the convention was strong against Ames and Doran. The delegates go unin structed, but favor T. C. Kurtz as dis trict delegate to the St. Louis conven tion. They favor E. M. Wilson as one of the delegates at large. NORMAN COUNTY. Ada, Minn., May B.— The Republicans of Norman county met in convention here to-day and elected the following delegates to the Republican state con gressional convention; O. 11. Myan, A.

Mankato, Minn., May B.—Republi can ward primaries were held in the city to-night, and local township cau cuses throughout the county to-day, for placing in nomination delegates to the county convention, which meets in this city next Thursday. The only issue in the caucuses was between J. E. Brown, of Mapleton, and L. P. Hunt, of this city, for delegate to the Republican na tional convention. The result in the city favored Brown, who has secured seventeen delegates to fifteen for Hunt. It is thought that Brown will capture the rural delegates and thereby secure the county delegation. FAVORING A LOW TARIFF. Special to the Globe. Granite Falls, Minn.. May B.— the Republican county convention for Yellow Medicine county delegates were elected to the state and district conven tions. Amotion instructing the dele gates for John Lind was defeated, and a resolution strongly favoring a reduc tion of the present high tariff was adopted almost unanimously.

The Contents of One of Steve Elkins' Epistles Given to the Public. How the Blame Schemers Pro pose to Nominate Their Man at Chicago. Depew to Keep the New York Delegation From Ohio's Favorite Son. Chairman Jones Has the Tip That Mr. Blame Will Accept. Special to the Globe. New York, May B.— There has lately been shown here a transcript of a letter written by Steve Elkins that throws considerable light upon the schemes of the Blame managers. In connection with the positive assertion of Col. Mc- Clure that Blame is a candidate, it brings to the country at large con vincing proof that, barring fate, Mr. Blame will be again the Republican nominee. Mr. Elkins in this letter (its authenticity cannot be questioned) writes that Chauncey Depew is being boomed simply to hold the New York delegation away from Sherman. He asserts that Depew is only a figurehead candidate, who at the proper time will throw off all dis guise and stand out boldly for Blame. Elkins goes on to say that the plan is to spring a deadlock upon the national convention at the start, by which the Allison, Sherman. Alger and Gresham men will find themselves unable to nominate their leaders. Every secret effort will be made by the Blame men to prevent too great a concentration of strength upon any one candidate. This deadlock will be maintained until the delegates wear out, and begin to weaken. Then Depew will cast the vote of the New York delegation for Blame, Pennsylvania will follow and, the whole convention joining in, make the Maine man a unanimous choice. Mr. Elkins adds that there is no question of Blame's acceptance; that B. F. Jones, of Pitts burg, has received direct word from Blame that he will accept. This word was brought by a gentleman expressly sent to Europe to see Blame and ascer tain from him positively how he felt. This is the gist of the Elkin's letter, which was a personal and private one, but leaked out through the enthusiasm of its recipient over the news conveyed. JONES INTERVIEWED, But Information Regarding Blame Hard to Get At. New York, May B.— Chairman B. F. Jones, of the Republican national com mittee, is at the Windsor hotel. He had pressing business engagements which prevented him from giving more than a few moments to the reporter who called on him. The time was principally spent in a denial of the reported interview with him sent out from Pittsburg last Saturday night in which he was made to say that Mr. Blame could not support Allison, Sherman or Harrison for the nomination; that Mr. Blame was so cially friendly to these gentlemen, but politically they were wide apart. "That is language which never passed my lips," said Mr. Jones. "The greater part of the reported interview is simply incorrect. The fact is that 1 have noth ing to say about politics." "Have you received any letter from Mr., Blame siuce his letter of with drawal?!.? "1 have not; neither do I know of any letter from him." "Will he accept the nomination if it is tendered to him?" "I do not know." "What do you think?" "Well, what would you do if the nomination was tendered to you?" "But he has withdrawn as a candi date." "Certainly he has, but if the conven tion shoual now nominate him that is quite another thing. That is the action of the people." "There is a story, Mr. Jones, that in 1884 Walker Blame brought to mou and S. B. Elkins a letter from his father di rected to Senator Conkling, asking his support, which was left to your discre tion to deliver or not, and that it was not delivered." "I never saw or heard of such a letter. It is a story of the same character as the reports now being spread that Mr. Blame has written a letter withdrawing his withdrawal; that he will write a let ter refusing to accept the nomination if it is tendered to him; that he is a very ill man, and so on." Hon. Stephen B. Elkins was inter viewed in regard to the same letter and said: "No such letter was ever written and no letter of the kind was sent by Walker Blame. Therefore, it was not seen by members of the committee, as stated. We would have been only too glad to have seen Mr. Blame and Mr. Conkling on good terms. The whole statement is ridiculous." New Hampshire Republicans. Concord, N. IL, May The Repub lican state convention to elect delegates to the national convention met to-day, and was called to order by J. H. Gal linger, who made a short address of congratulation upon the favorable out look for the party. His reference to Blame was greeted with long-continued : applause. Henry E. Burnham, of Man chester, was chosen permanent chair man. Delegates at large were unin structed, but their presidential prefer ences are understood to be as follows: Cheney and Batchelder for Depew, . Galhnger for Harrison, Tuttle for any man who can carry New York. Delaware Democrats. Dover, Del., May The Demo cratic state convention assembled at 12 p. m. Delegates to St. Louis were chosen as follows: L. C. Vandergrift, E. R. Cochran. W. A. C. Harcicastle, C. J. Harrington, W. F. Causey and W. H. Stevens.

The resolutions indorsed the course of Hon. Joseph H. Outhwaite in congress and President Cleveland and his tariff reform message. ' Tburman for Second Place. Washington, May B— A secret but rapidly developing movement is under way in this city to nominate ex-Senator Allen G. Thurman, of Ohio, for the sec ond place on the presidential ticket with Mr. Cleveland. The gentlemen prominent in the affair include senators and representatives in congress as well as certain officials connected with the administration. The greatest secrecy has been observed in regard to the mat ter. The Advance Guard. Washington, May B— The advance guard of the national Democratic con vention will soon meet, as Chairman Barnum has called a meeting of the members of the executive committee in New York city on the 15th of this month to arrange the preliminary work oi the convention. -•« A VENERABLE SWEDE. Enlisted in the Army When Sixty Years of Age and Did Good Service. Special to the Globe. Red Wing, May B.— the Swedish settlement of Vasa, this county, resides a man now in his eighty-eighth year, than whom none is more highly re spected by all who know him. Re markably healthy for one of so advanced years, a brilliant conversationalist and polished in manner.sheis honored by all. Carl Roos, the subject of this sketch, was born in Lang-Canshytten, Werm land, Sweden, Aug. 24, in the year 1800. Graduating wilh high honors at the High school at Philipstad, he held po sitions as overseer and inspector at dif ferent iron works and mines. He was also civil engineer in charge of building roads in the country. For four years he held the position of "faltvabel" in Wermland- Tirailleur regi ment. Afterwards he was appointed surveyor measuring lands. In the sum mer of 1853, having emigrated to Amer ica, he procured a homestead in the town of Vasa, this county, where he settled. He passed the winter of 1853-4 with no other company but 'G. Kempe and a number of • Dakota Indians who bad pitched their tents near his shanty. His | nearest neighbors were at Red Wing, sixteen miles distant, with no roads and three and a half feet of snow on the ground, and his experiences were anything but pleasant. The next year a number of others settled in that neighborhood, and the foundation thus laid for what has since been one of the most prosperous colonies of the state, producing soveral men of ' state and national reputation. When the war of the Rebellion broke out Mr. Roos, then over sixty years of age, enlisted,' Oct. 4, 1861, in the Third Minnesota volunteer regiment. He took part in the battle at Murfreesboro, Term., and afterwards was transferred to the Minnesota Indian war. taking fart in the pursuit and capture of the Indians who raided Fort Abercrombie.

Mr. Roos is a cultured and refined gentleman in every way, and still pursues his studies in various lines, keeping fully abreast with the times. That he may yet live many years is the honest wish of all who know him. NORQUAY REPUDIATED For Favoring Unrestricted Reci procity. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, May B.— For favoring un restricted reciprocity in his speech in the legislature last night, Mr. Norquay was this morning repudiated as leader of the Conservative opposition by the Conservative organ. That paper says: "In this action Norquay did "not voice the feelings of the Conservatives of Manitoba, he was certainly not acting as the leader of the opposition in the legislature, in fact he was playing a lone hand with very poor cards. By the course he has pursued, Mr. Norquay has rendered it impossible for the Con servative party to accept his leadership here any longer. For some time there have been loud murmurings of discon tent, and it has been felt that an extra ordinary effort would be required to unite the party under him. He has now made himself an impossibility as a Conservative leader, and it behooves the party to secure the holding of the convention at an early date, and to select a leader who represents their opinions and who will voice them on the floor of the house." ■*■* ,';£'; Attempted Poisoning. Special to the Globe. Toledo, May B.— Reports of an at tempt at wholesale poisoning were re ceived to-day. Hiram Fields, a promi nent grape grower, discharged an em ploye for drunkenness.

Sioux City, 10., May B.— An accident occurred here to-day which, though it may not prove fatal, is such as to de serve mention as one of the few in stances of the kind on record. Reginald Ford, a young Englishman, was driving rapidly on Pearl street, when the vehicle was stopped suddenly by a wheel catch ing in the street railway track, and Ford was thrown fully twenty feet, alighting on his head. Allan Vinton was the first person to reach the pros trate man, and found him to all appear ances dead and his neck dislocated. He took hold of his head and gave it a sud den turn, when the vertebra slipped back into place with a report that was plainly heard on the sidewalk. Ford sood regained consciousness, and if he escapes from the effect of brain concus sion, can boast of beiiig one of the few living persons who have had their necks dislocated. A NOVEL. THEFT, A Nebraska Man's Scheme to Get a Roof for His House. Special to the Globe. Newport, Neb., May B.— John Peters, a farmer living three miles from New port, was arrested last night for a crime which, for originality ■ and boldness, would have done credit to Robin Hood in his palmiest days. All the farm houses in this section are built of sod, with shingle roofs. Last night about 11 :30, Henry Winkleman, a homesteader, was awakened by a noise on the roof, and looking up saw that about half of it was gone. Greatly puzzled to know whether his house had been struck by the edge of a passing cyclone or had been swept away by some other con vulsion of nature, he hurried out just in time to see the missing section of his roof on a wagon which was disappear ing around a curve in the road. Secur ing his rifle he waited. Presently the wagon came in sight again, and its oc cupant, a neighboring homesteader named John Peters, drove to within a few yards of the house and stopped. He -then approached on foot, carefully removed another section of the roof and was car rying it to the wagon when Winkleman halted him, and with the assistance of his gun drove to Newport and delivered him to the constable. When asked what his motive was for this unique bit of villainy, Peters said he had just com pleted the walls of a sod shanty and being unable to buy the lumber for a roof, was tempted to appropriate his neighbor's.

She invited him to come in— sho says in order to show him her apart ments. Mr. Scofield was aroused |hy their movements, and Hatch was quickly hidden in a second floor room. Mrs. Scofield went ;to her husband, who immediately began to ques tion her violently concerning the man who had been with her. She refused to give his name, and said; he had left the house. The husband' and wife continued quarreling, until the husband left the house In anger;" The woman then searched for Hatch, but was unable to find him, and says she then retired.
