Mrs. Margaret Hunt's Body Found
Floating in the River.
Yesterday noon some men, who were
fishing near the Lake street bridge,
noticed a body floating in the river. It
was pulled to the shore, and proved to
be that of a woman about fifty years old.
The remains were taken to Gleason &
Byorum's morgue and there identified
as those of Margaret Hunt, who has re
sided at 2418 Twenty-third avenue south.
She left her home at 9 o'clock and was
last seen alive standing on the bank of
the river beneath the Short Line bridge.
The deceased had been married twice
and leaves a daughter and a son by her
first husband, whose name was Sprague.
The daughter is about twenty years old
and is a captain in the Salva
tion army, with headquarters at
Kansas City, where she is known
as Capt. May Sprague. The
son, Thomas Sprague. is about eighteen
years old, and is employed in the city as
a carpenter. Charles Hunt, the second
husband, has been employed as a team
ster, but left his wife about a week ago,
and has not been seen since. This, and
the fact that a chattel mortgage on the
hausehold goods is due to-day, probably
caused the woman to take her life. She
was addicted to drink, and her domestic
life had been far from happy.
The report got out that the body
found in the river was that of Adele
Menard, who left the house of Joseph
Menard, her father, at Twenty-first
street and Fourteenth avenue north,
Monday, and created quite a sensation.
The Author of the Carrie Farden
Letters Interviewed.
The letters of Carrie Farden, one of
the striking machine girls, who claims
that the committee has shown partiality
in the distribution of funds contributed
by the public for their support during
the strike against their employers,
Shot well, Clerihew & Lothman, has
caused something of a flurry among
those who have interested themselvs
in their cause. The committee's an
swer was in a fair spirit to the effect
that if any discrimination had occurred
it was not intentional. Seven hundred
and seventy-one dollars had been paid
out to 125 ' girls, necessarily all could
not receive aid, so the intention had
been to aid the most needy. They of
fered their books for inspection, but did
not care to publish the names of those
because of injuring their feelings. A
Globe reporter last evening called at
1300 Washington avenue south to learn
the idenity of Carrie Farden. He found
the object of his search in a neatly furn
ished room on the second floor of a
tenement block. She proved to be a
pleasant-faced young woman, who
spoke English with a pronounced
Swedish accent.
"So you think the committee has not
distributed the money fairly?" inquired
the reporter.
"I don't see why some girls should get
as much as $20 and others nothing at
all. I didn't get a cent."'
••Did you ask the committee for
"No, because some of the other girls
did and were snubbed.*'
"Who did they ask?"
"They asked Jessie England. She
was the one who gave out the money.
No, she didn't scold, but asked some of
the girls why they didn't go home or
hire out as servant girls."
Miss Farden finally admitted she did
not write the letters purporting to be
signed by her, which was self-evi
dent from their phraseology, but
said that a young man named
Christian A. Tiiigvold had written
them for her. and she showed by her
conversation that .-he was not familiar
with their contents. Tin; private secre
tary showed up just as the reporter was
faking his leave. lb' proved to be a
young man of about twenty-five,
who seemed to have an exag
gerated idea of championing the
cause of the girls, who,
he claimed, had been "most foully dealt
with." By this he meant some of them
hail not received their share of the
donations. He was asked if he had
ever talked with the committee, or as
certained any facts about the distribu
tion of Hi'- money. No, he had not. He
would demand an accounting in the
newspapers. Why didn't he learn lirst
thai an accounting was neces
sary? Well, he thought that the
names at the girls receiving aid
should be printed anyway. Rut suppos
ing ihe newspapers didn't care to give
so much space to an overhauling of the
committee's books, wouldn't it be a lit
tle fairer for him to make an investiga
tion first, anil then report the result aft
erwards? He finally thought it would
be better, and promised to call upon
Miss lloom y. of the committee, and ask
to see the books. Later on the public
will probably hear from young Mr.
Tingvold again upon the 'interesting
The Syndicate Promises to Quit
Business and Gets Off Lightly.
In the progress of the trials of the
gambling syndicate last week when the
evidence lor the defense was all in, one
of the syndicate's attorneys leaned over
and whispered to a friend:
••The result of these actions will be to
break up the syndicate."
What he meant was not very clear just
then, but it was plain yesterday morn
ing when Col. W. A. Tanner and .1. li.
Flannigan, convicted of keening the
rooms at 80S Nicollet, came up" for sen
tence. It had been the current talk that
Judge Hicks would give the men the
full benefit of the law and quite a crowd
had collected to witness the scene.
.Judge Hicks wore a very severe air and
his mouth was drawn hard down at the
corners when he looked up and asked if
W. A. Tanner was in court. The portly
colonel smoothed oil his head and took
a seat at the table while his counsel
offered a plea in extenuation. It
then came out that the syndicate
had dissolved and would go out of bus
iness. This was the point made by the
attorney. The court remarked that lie
was disposed to be severe in these cases
for the sake of the salutary example,
but it it were certain the defendants
would break up their establishment and
quit the business, he would be lenient.
Col. Tanner was the first to declare
himself. He pledged his solemn word
that he would not engage in the bus
ness in the future and permit nothing
of the kind with his knowledge and
consent. A fine of $200 was assessed
and paid, and the colonel strolled back
to his chair. The equally rotund J. B.
Flannigan was called out, and putting
his feet rather far apart, said:
"Your honor, 1 think it clearly ap
pears from the evidence that I was not
engaged in this business as a principal.
lam unjustly accused. 1 paid mv fine
over a year ago for the offense 1 am
charged with now. Since that time 1
have not been in the business except as
an outsider, as you might call it. 1
therefore think that 1 should not be
punished for the same offense twice."
•'Will you promise that you will not
engage in the business in the future?"
"Well, your honor, I was just con
vlcted on general principles, and would
not like to make any rash promises."
The court smiled in spite of himself,
and put on a fine of $50. At this point
Frank Shaw stepped up. The jury had
disagreed in his case, but he saw the
bent of affairs and changed his plea to
guilty. He gave the required promise
and paid $200 fine. Col. Pat Sullivan
afterward wandered smilingly in, plead
guilty and deposited two crisp $100
notes in the clerk's hands.
A Pleasant Exchange of Alder
manic Courtesies — A Ninth
Ward Rumpus.
There was a lively aldermanic seance
in the council chamber yesterday at the
meeting of the committee on ways and
means, the aldermen of the ninth ward
and the city .attorney called together to
consider the following petition which
had been vigorously circulated for sig
natures : HSRI
"We. the undersigned, citizens and
property owners of the Ninth ward,
protest and object to the city paving the
debt of about * -2,000 contracted last year
by the street commissioner and alder
men of the ward for improvements out
of any of the said city funds, excepting
the Ninth ward fund of last year, or to
the city paying any indebtedness now
or hereafter contracted by the com- *
missioner or aldermen for any improve
ments whatever out of any of
the city funds except the Ninth" ward
fund, on the ground that such indebted
ness and assessments arc illegal and un
The petition was. of course, intended
as a political blow at Aid. Kerr. Ervin
and Vogt, and ex-Aid. Comstock, who
wants to get back into the council,
headed the delegation of about a dozen
residents of the ward who were present.
The situation was readily explained by
Aid. Kerr. Before the old First ward
was divided its aldermen caused streets
and sidewalks to be laid out in what is
now the Ninth ward, amounting to
59,000. When the aldermen of the
Ninth ward were elected they found
that they had only $5,000 with which to
perform this work, and had an
old debt of $000 on hand and
their tools to buy. Only a por
tion of the amount needed came
in from taxes, and council, by a vote of
31 out of 32 votes, authorized the alder
men to borrow $1,000 from the city,
pledging its faith to pass a resolution
repaying the debt from the first avail
able funds of the Ninth ward. In the
fall culverts were needed, and snow
had to be cleared away in the winter so
the three aldermen gave their note for
SSOO, the council giving the same assur
ance for its payment. The sidewalk "
fund of the old First ward was divided
in January, and the Ninth ward's por
tion was $1,800. Eight hundred dollars
of Ihisw-is transferred to the street
fund and the note of the aldermen was
taken up. As the matter stands now
$1,800 has been borrowed:
Tin; city attorney and the aldermen
composing the joint committee recog
nized at once the predicament
the aldermen had been placed in, and
that while the borrowing of money was
perhaps irregular, still it is a resort to
which many wards have been pushed
more than once.
Aid. Stoft remarked that the mistake
was made when the ward was divided,
and offered a motion that the money be
paid out of the first funds of the Ninth
ward. Aid. E. M. Johnson added that
hereafter the borrowing of money should
be discountenanced. Aid. Stoft ac
cepted the amendment and the motion
This didn't suit ex-Aid. Comstock and
he wanted to learn from the city attor
ney whether the borrowing of the
money was legal.
City Attorney Smith replied that legal
or not he believed in the ward paying
its honest debts.
Aid. Kerr— Comstock was ald
erman lie borrowed more for his ward
than we have. Now he objects to others
doing what he used to do.
Comstock— We didn't borrow any the
last year.
Aid. Ervin— lf we carried on work as
yon did we wouldn't owe anything. The
city never laid any crosswalks then.
Comstock— One hundred and twenty
live street crossings were laid the last
year 1 was an alderman.
Erwin — there weren't, and we
haven't spent all our money on Bread
way either nor hauled city dirt on pri
vate property.
There, was a lull in the storm that
lasted a few minutes, but just as the
committee was about to adjourn Aid.
Erwin said, significantly: "The next
time you send around to people who
can hardly speak the English language
and tell them we are trying .to borrow
(5,000, you had better see whether you
are going to accomplish anything by it."'
Aid. Comstock retorted:" "It would
be hard to find many people in the ward
who cannot speak the English language
better than some of our representa
"No, you're a pretty good talker,"
snapped out the doughty Ervin. "You
proved that as a lobyist in the legisla
ture. You'd better get us tax payers to
pay for some more property lor "you to
sell to the city for a park."
"That's a lie, a stinking lie. and you
lie when you say it." yelled Comstock,
getting white in the face.
"You're a cur."
"You're a contemptible puppy."
"You're a political schemer," and
with this last shot, Aid. Ervin mingled
with tlie committeemen, who were leav
ing their seats.

A Seventh Ward Masked Dive.
Several days ago W. EL Thurston, the
proprietor of a barber shop at 2519 Lake
street, caused the arrest of a young boy
named Charles Dclamater on a charge
of larceny. Yesterday the case against
Dclamater was nolled, and he at once
swore out a complaint against Thurston,
charging him with keeping a gambling
house at the number given above.
Thurston pleaded not guilty to the
charge, and had his case continued
until 2 o'clock next Tuesday afternoon.
The inspectors say that Thurston has
been using his barber shop merely as a
blind, and has been running a poker
room and a faro layout in the rear room.
His plan is said to have been to get
boys ranging in age from twelve to
twenty entangled in the game.
Ole Hagan went up for twenty days
for assaulting Andrew Erickson.
C. O. Reed was found guilty of hav
ing assaulted Thomas M. Jeruey and

will have a hearing to-day. •

District Court Cases.
Lizzie Dearborn was granted a di
vorce yesterday from Brainerd Dear
born on the grounds of desertion and
cruel and inhuman treatment, and was
also given the right to assume her
maiden name of Lizzie A. Clark. She

years and the defendant's forty-three
years, and that they were married in

marriage he called her vile names and
told her he was going to leave her. - In
July, ISB7, he knocked her down with
his fist and beat her severely, and sev

kicked her without cause or provoca

niture from the house and deserted
her, and has remained away from her
