Two Women, Each Claiming to Be His Wife, Bob Up Serenely. . They Want Either the Man " Himself or Some of His Money. Dakota Sends Greeting to Blizzard-Stricken Vermont and Tenders Aid. Special to the Globe. Bbainebd, Nov. William Will iams, the market gardener, who was re cently reported to have come into a large property in Virginia, has myste riously disappeared under circum stances pointing strongly to murder or suicide. The latter theory is inclined to on account of somewhat startling de velopments which connected two women with Williams' affairs, claiming to be his wives. The whole case was devel oped the past day or two by the arrival here of an agent or representative of one of the women. The agent was one Mann, of Fargo, who came, as he stated, upon the order of one of the women, Josie Williams, who resides at Hudson, Mich., and who formerly lived at Fargo. Mann claimed to have proofs of a legal mar riage of this yvomau to Williams, he having married her out of . a variety theater at Fargo. Mr. Mann's client had heard that Williams had been left a fortune, and scut Mann to investigate, but she had PREVIOUSLY became alarmed at not hearing from him. and had re ceived letters from Brainerd stating that William had mysteriously disap peared. This Mrs. Williams' letters of inquiry were full of alarm and anguish. Meanwhile, also, since this supposed windfall, a Mrs. Williams, of Minneapo lis, through J. N. Beanies, an attorney, lias been in quest of him, claiming also to be his. wife, but more in 'quest appar ently of his fortune, or a part of it, than of himself. However, these facts were . uncovered by Mr. Mann in his investi gations, the sum of what he found' out being as follows: The property re ported to fall to Williams proved to be an individual heirship^ one of nine heirs in something over 100 acres of the old Virginia ante-bellum home, worth no considerable amount. However, the brother who found this long-lost heir, who lives in Missouri, secured an option on the inheritance and was given power of attorney to dis pose of it, and has since sold it. About Oct. 2 this brother sent William a sum of money, stated by William to be small, and William was - PROCEEDING TO BUILD on his homestead near Mille Lacs lake. He made some purchases for it and sent them out, and was going out himself on the Sunday following. On that day his old employer gratuitously carried him out part way ; he left this wagon to walk the rest of the way, since which no per son who ever knew him has seen or heard of him. Letters sent to this office, where he received mail, were returned unclaimed, and finally this Mr. Mann went there, returning to-day, and says he has not been seen there, and his place is apparently as he left it. i Mr. Mann and others, who knew all the facts think he has made away with himself by drowning in the lake, or by suicide in some remote place, perhaps in the dense* Mille Lacs woods, and that reasons therefor would be his fear of trouble about the two women, and of bitterness at his treatment by his brother, assuming that the' latter had got away with the property belonging to him. Williams was a quiet, inoffens i'(* man, but given to moroseuess and fits of MORBID ANXIETY; He was a soldier in . the war of the rebellion in the Twelfth Kentucky, while all the rest of his family, includ ing the Missouri brother, were in the confederate army. As stated in the original account in the Globe, this was the first time the brothers had met since before the war. When the Missouri brother found him, after a long search, last September. • William had been in this part of the country nearly ever since the war, and was well known among lumbermen. He was of medium height, spare, wore whiskers, and was troubled with weak eyes, and was upwards of fifty years old. It was believed by some that the body re port* d found by a Daggett Brook "man was his, but it could not have been. There are some who think Williams has gone into the lumber woods, but inquiry has been pretty thoroughly made and the best supposition is that it only re mains now for the two women to settle which of them is his real widow. HENRY GEO ICE'S HOBBY. Dakotians Are Agitating the Sin gle i ax Question. Special to the Globe. '"•";"'-*" Bismarck, Dak., Nov. 27.— The single-tax question right Henry George has brought so prominently before the public has taken root in Dakota, and among the other topics discussed with the prospects of statehood, it comes in in for a prominent place. Already a movement is on foot for the organiza tion of single-tax clubs. Throughout the territory, and everywhere, it is growing in popularity. In this city the club has many leading men on its rolls, and reports from various portions of the territory show that thousands have al ready joined the association. A single tax convention will be held for the terri tory in the near future, and an effort will be made to make a hit for the theoty in the stale constitution, which must soon be adopted for North Da kota. Several members of the legisla ture, which will meet here in January, are firm believers in single-tax, and one of the questions which the legislature will be called upon to grapple with will be this favorite child of Henry George. In all probability the legislature will be asked to memorialize congress on this question. AD I OR TH.. AFFLICTED. Dakotians Offer Assistance to the Blizzard-Stricken Veruionters.

She replied that she was going to spend the day with friends in Burlington, and informed him that if she did not return in time he would find his lunch ready in his dinner basket. ; The unsuspecting spouse turned over in bed and was soon wrapped in the arms of Morpheus. Mrs. Hanley had not returned when he left for work in the evening, and still he did not think anything was wrong, but when, on coming home from the mine Friday morning, he found that his wife was not there, he was dazed, and rushed to her parents' home, a short distance ■ away, only to learn there that they knew nothing of her whereabouts. The truth' began to dawn upon him at once and he re turned home grief-stricken, and has since declined to go to work, but re mains in c his house. Her father also became anxious and visited Burlington in the hone of finding her, but without avail. Her mother said that she was pretty certain that Mrs. Hanley was not in Burlington and expressed the belief that she went a long way off and went alone. The belief is general that the vvomau has gone to lowa, where she has relatives, and that she was not alone. - • • ' ' * V.--V HALL IS IN HOC. The Caledonia Bigamist Will Go Over the Road.

Every day I am solicited by special correspondents . of the press to speak upon this . subject or that, but I have invariably declined, and to : your appeal for., some expression upon* the question that interests you I ; must, for the present, make the same answer. I under stand that you have yourself been satisfied with the expressions made by me in my public utterances to visiting delegations dur ing the campaign. When the surprise and disappointment which some of your people have felt over • the result . has passed away, and they give some calm thought to the situation, I think they will be as much surprised as I am that they should, in thought or in speech, impute to me unfriend liness toward ihe South. The policies in legislation advised by the Republican party, I believe, are wholesome for the whole \ country, and if those who in their hearts be lieve with us upon these questious would act with us, some of the questions that give you local concern would settle themselves. Very truly yours, Benjamin Harrison. COMPLETELY AT SEA. Anti-Saloon Republicans Cannot Agree Upon a Plan for Future Work.

Twenty-Four Brutal Rounds Fought and Much Blood Spilled. Warren as Fresh as a Daisy and Havelin a Wreck. Jay-Eye-See, the Famous * Trotter, in a Dying Condi tion. San Francisco, Cal., Nov. 27.— Featherweights Jack Havelin and Tommy Warren met at the rooms of the California Athletic club to-night and fought for a purse of $1,000. According to the stipulations the men entered the ring at 118 pounds, and both appeared in excellent condition. When Havelin I arrived here from the East a feyv weeks : ago he weighed 135 pounds, and it has only been by a severe course of train ing that his weight was reduced to the required standard. The betting before the fight was not very heavy and what odds yvere offered were generally in fa vor of Warren. The crowd began to gather at the club rooms long before the h'urset for the fight, and by the time the two pugilists entered the ring there were probably a thousand persons present. Hiram Cook, of this city, yvas referee.- The contestants entered the ring together,; and were given an enthusiastic reception. Time was called at 9:15. Warren opened the round . by pushing Havelin to the floor. The latter quickly regained his feet, and an interchange of light blows followed. Warren had the best of the round throughout.and succeeded in getting in several good blows. On the beginning ot the second round Warren forced the fighting and planted several telling bloyvs on Havelin's face. Bed spots appeared at ■ once on the lat ter's . eyes k and |J forehead. . Several clinches followed, with . . 5 '-' ■ %", some SHARP in-fightino. ; , In 1 the third round Warren again forced lighting and drove Havelin around the. ring, raining ■' bloyvs lon his head.. -Havelin got in several blows which did not seem to worry Warren much. . The fourth round opened with the sharpest kind of . fighting, which yvas kept up until the close. Warren led with one hand after the other and kept Havelin moving .all around the ring. He also succeeded in starting blood freely from Havelin's nose, and by the time tho round closed Havelin's face and body were " covered with blood. Havelin , yvas knocked „ down twice *in this round by terrific bloyvs on the head. HHEB The next two rounds were repetitions of the former. Warren followed up ev ery advantage he gained aud made Havelin stagger under his bloyvs. It was plain that the latter yvas getting groggy and he offered -"but little resist ance. Blood continued to flow from his nose and also from a cut under his eye. ; In the seventh round, however, Have lin appeared to grow fresher. In the eighth . he caught Warren two ugly blows on the neck. He also began to try for Warren's yvind, but gained very little advantage. The fight progressed with varying success and ; Havelin appeared during the next few rounds to be recovering.; He struck savagely at Warren, but gen erally: fell short, as the latter saved himself by jumping away quickly. In the thirteenth round the men clinched and Havelin was thrown roughly to the floor. ; Havelin did but little in the next few rounds. Warren continued to have the best of the fight, and whenever an open ing occurred he would send-in a HARD ONE ON RAVELIN'S HEAD. : In the eighteenth round Havelin was knocked against the ropes, and a clinch followed. Warren threyv Havelin heavily to the floor. Loud cries of '.'foul" were heard, but the claim was not allowed. In the nineteenth round Havelin led out savagely three times . and each time caught Warren well on the chin or in the eye, which caused blood to flow. -"5; The last few rounds of the fight were the most brutal ever seen in this city. It yvas evident to every one that Have- Jin had no possible chance of winning. * . In the twenty-first round he; was knocked down twice, and after that he was hardly able to strike a blow. War ren was apparently almost as fresh as in the ' beginning , of - the - tight, and a swollen lip was the only: disfigurement to be seen upon him. Havelin, on -the contrary, presented a most pitiable jap-;'. Dearance, his lip and eyes terribly swol len and blood covering every part of his face and the front part of his body. . : In the twenty-second round he was knocked down once, and in ' the * next round five times. . ** In the : twenty-fourth round he was hardly able to stand, and Warren sent him to the floor six times. He came for ward gamely for the twenty-fifth, but was hardly upon his feet' before Warren sent him under the ropes. To the sur prise of every one, he ; again '.. stood up, only to be knocked under the ropes a second time. This time, also, . **c made an attempt to rise, but yvas only upon , bis knees when time was called,- and the referee awarded the" fight to Warren. BLEEDING TO DEATH.

The strike has started another boom 'at Zoar, and pre parations are making to continue bor ing in wells which have been tempor- . arily abandoned. The , find of gas in such large quantities so near . this city*---- , less than thirty miles . distant— creates . something of a stir here, as the supply now piped here .by the Pennsylvania Gas company does not begin to meet tho demand, aud the prospects are that the low cost of piping from the new field will cause a big drop in prices to cou» sumers. . ■ '_-'■-"- ' ."
