Officers on His Track and a Lynching by No Means Lynching" by No Means Improbable. In an Affray at Tower One of the Combatants Stops of the Combatants Stops A Bullet. Legislative Doings at Bis- marck and Madison— The Northwest. Special to the Globe. Superior, Wis., Feb. 27.— Great ex citement prevails here over the at tempted murder of Miss Maggie Wel ter, a highly respected and popular young laity. The particulars are as follows: Miss Welter occupied a room In the Harbaugh block as a dress-mak ing establishment. At 6:30 this even ing she left the room with the inten tion of going to supper. She had gotten half way down the stairs leading to the street, when a masked man approached her from the street and greeted her with the remark: "Now I will have revenge*!?. He then struck at her with a large dagger. She warded off the blow, but he struck again, and this time making a deep gash in her shoul der. _ _ S The perpetrator fled and the young. lady was picked up soon 'after, in an un conscious condition - and. cared ■ for by :" tier parents. - She -partially recovered her senses about S o'clock, but was: un able to give the slightest"* clue to her. assailant. She will recover, although the wound is quite serious, and phvsi eians express - the -4>elfef-that. insanity'" will result. The would-be murderer was observed by several persons after the assault, but in the' excitement he made good his escape, although six de tectives and a large force of special police are on the lookout. .The affair is shrouded in the deepest mystery and the deed must necessarily have been well planned, as passers by at the time were numerous and the street was well lighted. The young lady apparently had several years ago been involved in a love affair which was recently revived, and it - is thought by many that this might have some bearing on the case. The sheriff stated at 10:30 that he had a clue which he thought would result in the arrest of the perpe trator, but would give no further in form;. The greatest indignation is expressed on all sides. If the would be-assassin is taken to-night it is liable to go hard with him. Suspicion has rested upon ,i man who formerly boarded with the Welter family, and with whom Miss Welter had some dis agreement heretofore. He has not been a resident of the city for some time, but Js known to have been here to-day, and detectives are now on his track. A Murder at Tower. Special to the Globe.

Springs Soldiers' Home Bill Passed Over tbe Veto. Special to the Globe. Bismarck, Bak., Feb. 27.—Consider ation of the governor's veto of the bill establishing a soldiers' home at Hot Springs, was the special . order in the house this afternoon. The preliminary skirmishing was an interesting per formance. The opponents of the meas ure fought with Catling guns, and skil fully poured volley after volley of seem ingly deadly charges into its support ers, but when the final charge was made. It became evident that no serious dam age had been done, The vote stood 33 to 10 in favor of its passage over the veto. Those voting against it were Cooke, Logan, ; McNeil, Miller, Morris, Pateridge, Potter, Smith, Turnbull and Van Etten. 7.:'7 A message was immediately sent to thecouncil stating what had been done, and Washabaugh, after a short, sharp, brilliant battle, succeeded in forcing the enemy to fight to a finish without delay, the opponents endeavoring to postpone the decisive action uutil to morrow: McDonald and Cameron. the two Democrats present, left the field . and got under cover before a gun had been fired. The vote was fourteen to four, and Presi dent Stilwel) announced that the action of the house had been concurred in. Those voting in the negatives were Pat ten, Soderberg, Van Osdell and Wool hiser. It is understood, however, that Gov. Church maintains that the lan guage of the organic act requires two thirds of the entire membership, which would be sixteen votes, to pass a meas- ure over the executive- veto. Senator Hughes, ex-attorney general, says he also is inclined to this opinion, believ ing that if the question is ever tested in the supreme court it will so bold. Washabaugh maintains a contrary opin ion, and supports it with the rules of congress, which says only two-thirds of the members present is necessary. The language of Dakota's organic act and the constitution of the United States on this point is identical. Black Hills member are, of course, elated, and have a right to be. The council considered Hughes' and Stinimel's election bills, both modeled after the Australian ulan, in committee of the whole, but final action was post- poned till to-morrow, when they will be the special order. Bills allowing the governor to remove any of his ap- pointees without cause " passed both houses. Woman suffrage again came up in the house, and was slaughtered in a most cruel manner. This bill pro- vided that they should vote In munici- pal and township elections only. The committee of the whole decided to rec- ommend favorably the council bill es- tablishing an agricultural college at Valley City. Both houses held prolonged sessions lasting until after 7 o'clock, and a vast amount of legislative rubbish was dis- Sosed of. The Morris common carrier ill will be called up to-morrow ; the majority report of the committee favors its passage. . '-'■■ 7 7*,; The Wisconsin Legislature. Special to the Globe. ' ;•:-;■ 7 Madison, Wis., Feb. 27.-— There was a mild sensation in the, senate chamber for a time this morning when Senator Gainer, author of the county option bill, rose and demanded an explanation; from Senator Fritz, of: Milwaukee, re- garding the letter published in an anti- Prohibition paper by the latter, in : which the persons who introduced the option measures were characterized as knaves. Fritz was somewhat taken a-back for a moment, but explained that the letter was written in German . and had been too literally translated by: the editor who printed it. He acKiiowl-; edged though that he used strong lan- guage, being greatly exasperated by the; number of temperance bills presented. The senate passed bills exempting tracks, right of way, depot grounds and ; buildings, machine shops and other property necessarily used in operating: any railroad in the state from taxation for any except local purposes; trans- ■ ferring the duties of state pension agent, to theadjutantgeneral; fixing the salary of the latter at §3,000. The assembly killed the bill limiting the amount of tax to be raised in any county having a papulation of less than 15,000 to one per cent of the property valuation therein any yeai for county purposes, exclusive of interest on its bonded debts. - : :; AN INSULT 'JO DAKOTIANS. The Canadian Government Calls Them a Pack of Timber Thieves. Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 27.—A report is- sued last night from the interior depart- ment contains the following: lt is a well-known fact that in addition to the disadvantages under which the terri- tory of Dakota is placed on account of the frequent and fatal blizzards which visit it during the winter seasons, and the cyclones to which it is subjected in summer, the absence of a fair supply of wood, fcr purposes of fuel, forms a serious drawback to its successful set- tlement. For some years past settlers • in that territory have been accustomed to supplement tneir inadequate fuel supply by systematic stealing from- the public lauds on the Cana -diau - side of the . boundary, and to such proportions had this custom grown that it was found necessary dur- ing the past year to c ncert measures to ♦put a. stop to it. Accordingly, an ar- rangement was brought to a conclusion in September last between the depart- ment of customs, the department of the interior and the Northwest mounted police, under which a detachment of police was detailed for service along the boundary between Manitoba and Dakota in the locality lying between ranges 5 and 9 inclusive, west of the first meridian. A commission of the mounted police visited the district in November last, and has reported to the comptroller that the co-operation of the force had not been demanded too soon, as the destruction of timber by Dakota settlers had been enormus,-in; addition to which there was extensive smuggling and other evasions of our laws. Since then quite a number of arrests have been made of timber thieves and smug- glers, and the depletion of our com- paratively limited supply of timber on the Canadian side has? been .greatly checked. 7 Nv 7 PERPETUAL MOTION ' Thought to Have Been Worked Out at Sioux City.

HURLED TOETERNITY. Nine Persons Killed in a Rail- : road Wreck at St. George* 1 „ Ontario. An Express Train Leaps From a Bridge, Falling Nearly |; 100 Feet. y The Pullman Turns Over Twice in Its Fall, Alight- ing Upright. --/# > Scenes of Suffering at the Wreck~A Broken Tire the Cause. St. George, Ont., Feb. 27— St. Louis express, passing here east- bonnd about 6 o'clock to-night, went through the bridge just east of the sta- tion. A broken tire on the engine caused the rails to spread, and the first passenger car, the Pullman car "and dining car .went through the middle section of the bridge. The Pullman car, containing the most passengers,* was thrown clear off the bridge, turning : completely over and" lighting right side up. The dining car stands on end against a pier, and the passenger car remains on the bridge, having stripped the ties ahead of it over the section that collapsed. About thirty wounded have been taken out and eight or ten dead. The train consisted of five coaches, baggage, passenger, smoking, Pullman and dining cars: ';. : | HOW IT HAPPENED. As near as can be ascertained the ac- cident happened in the: following man-;. ner: The piston rod broke just as the i train passed the station, causing the. rails to spread. As it proceeded, the ; engine, tender and smoking car crossed; the bridge in safety, but just; as the passenger coach was near. the center of the bridge the terribie affair occurred. The fireman, i it appears, noticed that all was not; right and jumped, receiving a severe] scalp wound. The passenger car went over the bridge, turning a somersault and landing flatly. ' The Pullman re- mained on the bridge. The dining car contained about seven- people besides the waiters. Supper had just been an- nounced and ; in a few minutes the car would have been filled and all must j have perished. ' Following is .a list of j the dead and wouuded.

I Another Italian Murdered in New •7 Orleans and His Body Burned. ;) New Orle a_*.s, Feb. 27.— A horrible murder was brought to light to-day by the finding of the . half burned body of John Mattein, an Italian, in the loft of his residence in this city. The theory of the police is that . Mattein was brained by his wife on ; Sunday night while asleep, and that she used a hand axe, as a bloody axe was found on the premises. Blood stains covered the bed and floor. Mrs. Mattein, when asked on Monday where her husband was, replied that he had gone to the '; country to play music. The woman has five _ children. . Evidently becoming alarmed on Monday, she sent three of them to neighbors and disappeared with the other two. The police also think that Battein was the victim of a deadly ven- detta, and that his murder Is the sequel of the killing of the Sicilian, Vincenzo Ottumva, whose body was found in a swamp. Anthony Dema and Anthony Corso were • arrested for that deed on the confession of Mary Dema, but they. ■ were discharged by. tlie recorder for.. want : of :; evidence, the ■ only .' witness, 1 the woman Denia.'haviiig: disappeared before the trial, Mattein took considera- ble interest in the Ottumva- case, there- by displeasing his fellow countrymen, and he. was doomed.

This lady says that she was waiting for a car at that time. She was dressed exactly as Cow- lin had described, wearing a flat fur cap, plush sa'cque and mull'. She is in general appearance and stature a good deal like Mrs. Smith, and Cowlin •might easily have mistaken her, he i says, for that lady. '.: The general im- pression seems to be that her testimony will upset the case against the Smiths, though Captain O'Donnell still professes to believe that the couple will be held. *■ IVES AN ST A NO R.

The grand jury still has 'the case of Ives and Staynor before them, and will, have for. some time to come. Further indictments against the accused are looked for. . .Lawyer Frank . It. Lawrence; the attorney for the Cin- cinnati, Hamilton & . Dayton railroad, in : its suit 7 against Henry S. 'Ives and George B. Staynor, had a conference this morning with District Attorney Fellows. Mr. Law- rence said there was no doubt of the conviction of Ives and Staynor on any of the four counts of the indictment which the grand jury had found against them. Woodruff's testimony would not be needed, but it may be used against , the financiers. Mr. Lawrence further ■said that within the past twenty-four hours he had found out that Ives and his partner had put away considerable more money . as the result of their rail- road transactions than was at first .though. He did not think it amounted to a million ..dollars, but it was a good- sized fortune. The penalty atla-hed to their cases .was lrom five to ten years, to which a fine could be added. He probably would not be associated in the criminal proceedings. He believed the district attorney's office was fully ca- pable of handling the case. A SHERIFF SHOT.

Turley, the sheriff of Carter County, was instantly . killed and bis deputy badly and perhaps fatally wounded at Low Wassie, a small town on the Current River rail- road, in Shannon county..

To-day Thompson and a man named Taylor, w ho is said to be a half-brother of Thomp- son, got on the train* at Winona, and : were met at Low .Wassie . by Sheriff * Turley.

Shortly after 6 o'clock last .night pedestrians in the vicinity of Fifth and Robert streets were startled by a single pistol shot that rang out upon the night air and announced the cruel and cold blooded murder, by a woman of the town, of a young man in the prime of life. The factories, shops and business houses of the wholesale district had just turned out upon the streets their thou sands of employes, who were fast hurry ing to their homes. From the office of the American Express company came John|W. Doherty, assistant cashier, who proceeded up Jackson. street to Fifth, turning west on that thoroughfare. Al- most at the same instant a woman, well dressed, closely veiled and carry ing a bundle under 'either arm, turned in upon the same side of Fifth ; street, from -.Robert and walked at a hur- ried pace towards him. They met, ex • changed glances of recognition, and passed .without speaking. No sooner | had 'they done so, however, than the • .woman'" pulled a glistening revolver from the muff which she carried, turned upon her heel and tired at the receding man at a distance of less than ten feet. The victim uttered a stifled cry, stag- gered a few feet and fell forward UPON THE PAVEMENT utterly helpless. The woman had but fired the shot when she replaced the revolver in the muff and proceeded down the street, only paus ing after going a few steps • to glance over her shoulder and see the victim of her" crime fall to the ground. Only three or four people on Fifth street ob served the shooting. The first of these to act was Otto Names, a fifteen-year- old press boy. who followed the woman down Fifth street to ''Jackson, where he ■ met - Officer ■- Casserly, who" had .heard : tlie report of tho pistol shot. and, was hurrying to the scene. "This is the -.woman,*.? •*' said the • -"boy; .,- '. point ing to the '."■. handle of the ; revolver.* ; which • was visible from the muff. ..The officer, observing 'the bundles which she carried, was inclined to doubt the boy's statement, but ap- proached her and said: "Are you the wo man who tired the shot?" "All right." she returned with the air of a person not in the least excited, "I'll go with you." They then retraced her steps up the street to the point in the middle of the block where the shooting occurred, and where several hundred people had gathered, attracted from Robert and Jackson streets by the report of the re- volver. In the meantime Officer Ger- ber, who heard the report from Robert street, had come to' the wounded man's assistance. Aided by several bystanders he removed the man to the Exchange -laundry on the opposite side of the street, where he . DIED WITHIN EIGHT MINUTES from the time of the infliction of the wound. About three minutes he lay upon the 'pavement before his removal to the building, but at no time did "he utter an intelligible word, the only .signs of life being an occusional low moan. Soon after his death Murphy & O'Hal loran. undertakers, . were summoned and the body was removed to their ■ morgue on Sixth street,' where an exam- ination was made of the fatal wound. The bullet was found to have entered the body in the middle of the back to the right of the spine, and passed al- most through, discoloring the skin on his breast, just above the heart. j It is believed that death resulted from .hemorrhage caused by the rupture of a main artery of the heart. Coroner Quinn viewed the body at the morgue, but decided to postpone the autopsy and inquest until to-day. The woman was taken in the patrol wagon to the central police . station, where she was , assigned to cell 11. The weapon, a 33-caliber, self-cocking revolver, was taken from her, and on removing her hat and veil it was found that. she wore a heavy gray wig. SORRY SHU KILLED HIM. . SORRY SHI. lilLfiED HIM. The Murderess Says Her Sole Aim Was to Wins Doherty. A reporter for the Globe found the woman in a cell at the central police station, whither she was taken shortly after the murder. She did not appear greatly excited by the enormity of her crime, and even evinced a certain amount of satisfaction at the way in which she had made good her threats to the murdered man, "that she would make his name ring all over the couu try, and show the people what a hard citizen he was." She came to this city from Louisville. Ky., and has been an inmate of - numerous disreputable houses in . this city, and first made the acquaintance . of Doherty at the house of Sadie Fuller, a notorious brothel iu this city, three years ago. - Their connection dates from that time. "My name" she said, "is Clara J. Doherty, and I came here from Louisville. Ky., five years ago. After I came to St. Paul, I was an in mate of Pearl Wilson's place, and have been in a good many other houses In this town. After I got acquainted with Doherty we lived at different places, and he never used me right. We lived lately at 420 Wabasha street. His name is John W. Doherty, and he was assis tant cashier for the American Express I company. Doherty and a fellow named ; George Matthews were boon compan ions, and 'Dodo' blew in all the money 'he made in the sporting houses, never : giving me a cent. Tlie cause : of . the ; trouble is that he kept coming to me for money, and when 1 told -him I couldn't give him any he , - •77: STRUCK ME AND KICKED ME." . "He treated me shamefully, and my jaw is broken in two places now from the effects of his blows. I had to go to : Hot Springs on . account of it. 1 am 'covered with bruises. On the 2tith inst. he asked me to give him a dollar, aud , when I told him 1 coum not Keep np tne house and give him money as well, he suid: 'You dirty b— . what have I got vou for but to make a living for me?' Continuing," the woman stated that on the, 19th inst. she went to Irving E. Atherton, general agent of the Ameri- can Express company, a*nd informed him of the disgraceful behavior, as she expressed it, of, Doherty in" his treat- ment of her. Continuing her story, the woman stated that Doherty, or "Dodo," —that apparently being a pet name she had for him— came to her room on the evening of the lGth inst. and said .that he had been discharged from his posi- tion and that she was to blame for it. This statement proved to De false, as he was still in the employ ot the company. The woman claims that recently she and Doherty, in company with the - murdered man's boon - com- panion Matthews and a woman named Nellie. Smith, % repaired to the : Jockey Club saloon on Seventh street and spent several hours there, engaged in drink- ing. .The men became boisterous, and his woman— Doherty's— feared trouble, and sent for a hack, in which she' and the girl Smith proceeded to Pearl Wil- son's dive on Fifth street. Doherty followed, and entered a room at the house and" asked the woman if she wanted to leave him. She replied that she wanted to be left atone. He said: "Before you shall leave me I'LL DISFIGURE YOU so that your best friends won't know you." "What was your intention in shooting at him? Did you mean to kill him," "No," said the prisoner, "1 meant to shoot him in the back, not to kill him, but just to show him up and let people know what kind of a thing he was. Last i Christmas." she : continued," he was taken ill and I nursed him, paid for all his medicine, and lent him money time and again. . I got tired of it, and several times lately refused to give him money. I was sick of being abused and ronbed. and the cur ran away from me whenever I got within a block of him." The woman spoke rapidly, and to all appearances had not been drinking. Her eyes were bloodshot, and her nat- urally sharp features somewhat drawn and white.1 but otherwise she looked as well as women of her class usually do.- .In answer to a question as to whether she had been drinking, she replied: . "Not ' much I haven't. You need not think I'm going ..to play the drunk game. ., ; ----*r':*>--; -'.-V: ' : "" I AM AS SOB*ER .',-':"' as the day I was born.' I - went after •Dodo' to shoot him, but I didn't mean to kill him. That's a fact. I had been after him several times, and last night 1 went to the. office after him. I asked the office boy, 'Is John in?' and he said 'Yes; do you want to see him?' As soon as Dohertv saw me he ran out the back door and i couldn't find him after that until I met him on the street, acci- dentally, I suppose." . _ At this juncture a messenger arrived with a message for the murderess from Attorney Edwin S. Thompson, who sent word that he would defend her and that it would not «ost her a cent. - I Again taking i.". . "*"** story, the woman. said: "After 1 knew I couldn't get near him if : he saw me, I made up my mind to i disguise ."myself, and I "got a white wig, and put a thick veil over my face, before .- 1 .. walked down to the. place1 Wn*e're rrme^'Hrnr.

A MORPU1XK FlBND. The Woman Scarcely Compre- hends the Enormity of Her Crime. The woman who has by her action '.of last evening brought to so terrible a cli- max her disgraceful career ■ is not ill- looking so far as regularity of feature is concerned; yet the lines of vice are plainly visible upon a face which may at some period in the woman's history have been an extremely comely one. She is now Sharp-featured, even to angularity, and has a prematurely aged appearance. The use of.. morphine.. is without doubt responsible for the blood- shot eyes and nervous demeanor of the abandoned creature. When asked, a question which at first she failed to catch, she would smile, and lean for- ward inquiringly, and her whole de- meanor is such as to induce the belief that she hardly comprehends tiie enor- mity of her crime, or the serious posi- tion in which she is placed. r Attorney Dick Warner, who had come to the station, repeatedly cautioned the woman not to say too much to reporters, ■ but as soon as he stepped back, she was ready to proceed, and apparently looks to the press for support in this, her dire extremity. Just as the reporter was leaving a boy was allowed to enter,- who approached the cage and asked the woman if there was anything he could do for her. He received a small package to take down to her room, which, on examination by Chief Clark, proved to be the ring worn by her at the time of the murder. A MAN OF LOOS1. HABITS. Doherty Was Wild, but a Hail Fellow Well Met. Mr. Atherton, manager of the express company by whom Doherty was em- ployed, is out of the city, and inquiry at the office last night failed to elicit any information regarding the complaint which the woman alleges she- made to him. The story is generally discred- ited, however, though several of the employes were acquainted with the fact that Doherty had long been unduly intimate with her. At the express com- pany's office where Doherty has worked, he was spoken of In the high- est terms. "He was possibly a little wild at times," said one of the cerks, '•but he was one of the best boys in the office, and everybody liked him." ■ - W. Newton, proprietor of the City hotel, where Doherty had boarded dur- ing his residence in" this city, was also seen. He stated that the murdered man came to St. Paul about six years ago from Tilsonberg, Out., where his parents then resided, but that they afterwards moved to Waverly, Dak., where they now live. "This woman," said Mr. Newton, "got in the habit of calling at the hotel and inquiring for him, but the clerk finally told her to keep away, and I have seen little of her since." He stated also that she had formerly been a mistress of Do- h«rty but believed that he had thrown her off several months since. "Do- herty." continued Mr. Newton, "was one of the best boarders we ever had in the house— was quiet, orderly, and everybody liked him." HEP. REAL NAME UNKNOWN'. The true name of the murderess was stubbornly withheld last night. A call at the house at, 4-20 Wabasha street, where she roomed, brought out the fact that she was known there .- as Mrs.; •Biatz, but this is not believed to be her : name. ■:-. "She has . always been rather quiet," said the landlady, "but for. the past month "has been more reserved than usual. Something has been prey- ing on her mind, and at ..times she has been morose and almost sullen." It was . rumored that -> she had publicly, threatened the life of Doherty, but the lady - of '" the ..' house, and '.. Lou • Bean, a companion in the house,' both positively denied having heard her at any time ; threaten violeuce. A BEAUTY BRIGHT! The GLOBE Will Issue on Tuesday Next An 7^ 7~ ' 7%.

Some men achieve Mormoinsm, others have Morinonisin thrust upon tnem. To the latter class Van Kenselaer. Mac- Veagh, the considerably married travel ing salesman for Beaupre, Keogh and Davis, claimed he belonged, when a couple of weeks ago local papers pub- lished a catalogue of his wives and children. The first public intimation of the muchness of his matrimony, it will be remembered, came in a telegram from St. Cloud, which stated that a young woman giving her name as Mrs. Van K. McVeagh, employed as dining room girl in the West Hotel, St. Cloud, had gone insane upon receipt of the intelli gence that - her supposed ; hu^ oa nd h ad- a wife .' and j five children alive and' legal at Freeport," '1111 The young woman claim ed thata couple of years ago she met Mc- Veigh at Grand Forks, Dak., and that to know him was to love him.-- On his representation that a marriage license could not be pro- eined in Minnesota or Dakota, she being under age, she went with him to Winnipeg, where, in May, 1888, sua went through a • " MARRIAGE CEREMONY WITH HIM,; which she believed was genu- ine.. ;- No autograph certificate from : the*, manufacturer accompanied it, and the name- was not blown in; the bottle, but the -"irj took it as prescribed and experienced- all the effects- com- monly resulting from the genuine -.arti- cle.

All went lovely until the first of last month, when his love began to , deal in futurities, and he was only will- ing to put up $5 on the margin.. He left her at Brainerd, and in • a letter,, con- taining a remittance of So 'told' her he was out of- a job and could do nothing more . for her until ..ho again obtained work. Then he prom- ised to send for her, but in. the mean- time advised her to get- employment under an assumed name. . She tried to hire out as an angel, and to this end took laudanum. "Her life was saved with difficulty, and. failing to become an angel, she became a hotel dining room girl, as before stated. Her intel- lect sharpened by grief, a picture Mr. McVeagh had given her of his cousin and five children, together with the memory of a registered letter she had seen him send to a sister in Freeport, 111., aroused the girl's suspicions, and a communication from her to the post- master elicited the news that her recre- ant spouse has a wife and. five children in that city. ; The girl wrote at once under an assumed name to the alleged Mrs. McVeagh No. 1, and a reply from the eldest daughter: confirmed .her worst suspicion. She was not only de- serted but betrayed— .. :r; "A WIFE IN NAME" ONLY:" the man she had ■ regretted to - . th© point of self-destruction, a bigamist and her destroyer. : There was little else the girl could do but go crazy. . Some women when all else is lost don't have the luck to follow with- the loss of rea- son, but she did. When a report of her condition and the causes that had, led to it reached St. Paul, Mr. McVeagh was to the front with a denial of the whole story. He was amazed, grieved. indignant, etc.. and solemnly declared the woman to be ins. ne, the peculiarity of her mania a persistency in claiming him as her husband. Claiming a given man as her husband argues more than one woman insane, though it argues nothing against the ' legality of her claim. Mr. MacVeagh announced him- self on the war path, and proposed fight- ing the calumny to the finish. All that, however, was changed by the receipt and publication of a letter from Mrs. MacVeagh No. 1, who stated that she, too, was almost crazy— from claiming Van Renslaer MacVeagh as her hus- band for nineteen years. In the past four years she has seen him but once. She expressed sympathy for THE GIRL HE HAS RUINED' and begged a Minneapolis friend, "fo_ the sake of us all, get the officials a. work, lt seems I cannot wait to have him caught." At the same time Mrs. MacVeagh No. 2 publicly met his ac- cusation that she was in the habit of taking morphine with the testimony that she never took any morphine in her life until MacVeagh took her to a physician in Bismarck, Dak., for treat- ment in a critical sickness— a sickness for which MacVeagh was wholly re- sponsible. Since that time she has never taken a grain of morphine. . ' At this juncture Mr. MacVeagh "folded his tent like the Aral), and as silently stole away" from St. Paul to parts , unknown, and- the affair was dropped from print. Monday afternoon, however, a -telegram, was received by the girl, Annie Roche (Mrs. MacVeagh No. 2) at St. Cloud from MacVeagh. It was dated Detroit, Mich., and asked. her to go to that city .at once. Upon the advice of her attorney, Miss . Roche telegraphed in reply that she could not leave . St. : Cloud tor lack I of money. Superintendent of Police. Pittman, of Detroit, was also telegraphed 'to arrest MacVeagh, and hold him until an officer. from St. Cloud can arrive empowered to take charge. of him. .
