It Is Hard to Enforce Prohi
bition in the Town of
Granville, 10.
As a Constable Who Was
Mobbed There Yesterday
Will Testify.
Albert Hoennich, of Eau
Claire, Will Plead Guilty -
to Bigamy.
George Bryson, the Montana
Murderer, Will Appeal
His Case.
Special to the Globe.
Orange City, 10., March 23.— The
only place in Northwestern lowa where
the prohibitory law has been openly vio
lated eter since it was enacted, is the
little town of Granville, in the southern
part of this county. Four or five sa
loons have been run wide open all the
time, and the proprietors dared any one
to file information against them. Re
cently the people of the northern part
of the county where the law is respected
' and obeyed, decided to close the .saloons
at Granville. Yesterday warrants were
placed in the hands of Constable Carver
against Peter Gallen and others, charg
ing them with keeping intoxicating
liquors. No sooner had he made his
business known than he was set \
upon by a mob of about
thirty men and given half an hour to
leave town. The mob surrounded him
and began crying "Kill him!" "Hang
him!" and Gallen seized a revolver and
swore he would kill the officer if he
made a move toward searching his
premises. Carver got away from the i
crowd and telegraphed the sheriff here
lor aid, but that official was absent, and
no aid could be sent. Later in the day,
the mob again surrounded Carver,
striking him violently in the face, and
throwing him from the steps of the
saloon when he attempted to enter to
serve the papers. At this point, Gallen
produced a rope which he tried several
times to throw around Carver's neck,
but was prevented by the agility of the
officer. The crowd by this time was
getting furious, and Carver drew his re
volver and ordered his assailant's back.
This quieted some of them. and. with
cocked revolver in his hand. Carver
backed across the street, and to the
depot, where he took a train for this
place. A sheriff's force will go down
Monday, and close the saloons, when
lively times are expected.
Moennich Will Plead Guilty Mon
day and Receive Sentence.
Special to the Globe.
Eau Claire, Wis., March Albert
Moennich, charged with bigamy by his
marriage with Miss Augusta Kriesel
last September, when he had a wife and
child in Cologne, Germany, was brought
into court this afternoon for .examina
tion. He at first maintained- a bold
front, declaring he had no wife in the
old country; but when the chain of evi
dence against him was set forth and let
ters from the wife in Germany and
* copies of the court records from Cologne
were produced, he broke down and con
fessed all. For his persistent denial of
a previous marriage since he wedded
Miss Kriesel he had no excuse, but said
he thought himself legally separated
from his wife, because her parents
would not permit her to come to Amer
ica with him. Further unguarded re
-1 marks which he made in his excitement
showed that he had never furnished his
wife any money to come to him. aud
left Germany without her knowledge.
He will plead guilty Monday in Judge
Bundy's court Monday and receive sen
tence, the penalty being one to five
years' imprisonment. ,

Home-Made Twine.
Special to the Globe.

here are very indignant over the "twine

court house Friday, March 29. to take
steps toward building a mill here for

financial backing, which will give it a
substantial start. V.".--":-

Auditor Ward Promptly Bounced
—Joseph Bailey Appointed
Special to the Globe.
Bismarck, Dak., March 23.—
Mellette to-day appointed Joseph Bai
ley, of Sioux Falls, territorial treasurer
to succeed Lawler, resigned.- This aft
ernoon he released Auditor Ward and
left Deputy Palmer as custodian
of the office. This action was has
tened by the appearance of Col.
Gale, who, with the other trustees of
the Yankton asylum, was removed from
office by telegraph yesterday. Gale
arrived to-day and here learned that he
had been removed. Having advanced
over 515,000 for the completion of the
wing of the asylum, he is anxious to be
reimbursed, and the fear that Auditor
Ward would draw a warrant for his
reimbursement caused the speedy
acceptance of his resignation. Gale
is on the war path and will
fight the governor in his removal order.
When Gov. Mellette entered the audi
tor's office to-day and attempted to pre
vent Ward from proceeding with his
duties, Ward informed him that this
was the first time that a governor had
attempted to dictate to him while he
had been in . the office, and refused to
act under the dictation. Thereupon
Mellette accepted his resignation to take
effect at once, and appointed Palmer
as custodian. A delegation from Cass
. count}', headed by Col. Plummer, has
been here to-day opposing the Fargo
plan of appointment for the constitu
tional convention. They are going
nome well satisfied. George Walsh, of
Grand Forks, is here to have the board
of regents of the Grand Forks univer
sity rearranged by the appointment of
Republicans to succeed the Democrats,
with tiie exception of Roach, whom he
wishes to remain. Mellette says he will
make a clean sweep, and he has started
at work on that plan. He has not de
cided on the successor to Auditor Ward,
but will within a few days.

Senators Davis and Wash

Both Have Been 111, But Are
Better Now—Evil Rumors
Editor Reid's Nomination Con
firmed by a Strict Party
Strong* Opposition to Gen.
John C. New's Appoint
Special to the Globe. .
Washington, March 23.— "1 am sur
prised," said Chief Clerk • Johnson to
day, "that so many erroneous " pieces of
gossip should be printed. I see in one
of the Minnesota papers constant allu
sions to unfriendly relations existing
between our senators. The very con
trary is the case. They are working in
harmony on all matters." The state
ment of Col. Johnson was verified by
your correspondent this afternoon. It
was reoorted that Senator Davis was
lying seriously ill. He was found con
fined to his bed with a severe cold and
a slight billious attack. He said: "I wili
be out to-morrow. I was lying here
wishing I could call on the sick senator,
when in he came to see me. Washburn
| is looking as well as ever and will leave
i for home to-night. He called because
he had heard I was sick, but found me
able to consult with him on several mat
ters of importance to our people." .; The
senator smiled when told of . rumors of
unfriendliness between himself and
Washburn, saying: "Why, the senator
has ,: been sick, but as soon as he was
I able he called on me to tender his sym
pathy. Neither of us cares for false
reports of that character." L. J.
Rusk, of Cnippewa Falls, who has
beep here assisting his father, the secre
r 0 agriculture, left for home this even
ing. He says: "Now that an assistant
secretary is appointed the work on my
father's desk will be lightened and I
can return to my business. My work
here has paid me just $100, per week
put of pocket, for I have not been on
the pay roll. It has been purely a filial
duty." Col. King and Major Pickler
again called on secretary Noble this
morning to urge the appointment of the
Sidttx commissioners but found . the
secretary to busy to take up the ease.
He, promised to do so sometime next j
week without fail. .

Democratic Senators Oppose His
Washington, March 24.— secret ■
session of the senate to-day was devoted
almost evclusively to the consideration
of the nomination of . Whitelaw Reid, of
New York, to be minister to France.
Some days ago Senator Vest received a
letter from a Mr. Fnllerton, of - Wash
ington, a stockholder in . the - Mergen
thaler companj*— the ; company owning
the Mergen thaler type-setting machine
— charging Mr. Reid with : mismanage
.. ment of the : affairs of '■ the company.
Mr. Reid "has been at J the /_ head
of -'.- the. Mergenthaler company for
a long time aud has had the machines at
work in the Tribune ■ office .' for several
years. Using this letter as a text, the
Democratic .. senators* f endeavored v to
nprevent the consideration of ; the nor
ination of Mr. Reid and to have 'it
thrown back into the committee from
which it had been reported. The mat
ter was discussed at great length, in
fact, for nearly three hours. It was
finally brought to a vote, and a motion
to recommit the nomination was de
feated by a strict party vote. The nom
ination was then confirmed. The vote
on the confirmation was 25 to 13. a bare
quorum voting. The Democratic sen
ators* who voted for Whitelaw Reid's
confirmation were Call, Ransom, Blod
gett, Payne and Gibson. It is claimed
by Mr. Reid's friends that all the Re
publican senators who were not paired
voted for confirmation.
John C. New's Confirmation Bit
terly Opposed.
Washington, March 23.— The failure
of the senate committee on foreign re
lations to report the nomination of John
C. New to be consul general at London,
has occasioned . some comment. The
nomination of Fred D. Grant, which
was sent to the senate at the same time,
was reported to-day and confirmed.
The delay in confirming the nomination
of Mr. New is d tie to the efforts of the
people who called the meeting two
nights ago to protest against his confir
mation. They have notified the com
mittee that they have formal charges to
file against Mr. New, and in accordance
with the invariable rule of the commit
tee, the consideration of the nomination
has been suspended until these charges
shall have been filed and considered.
There is no doubt that Mr. New's nomi
nation will be confirmed. f:^u''£
The Commissionership of the Gen
eral Land Office in Demand.
;" Washington, March 23.— The fight
for the position of commissioner of the
general land office continues, and is
very interesting. There are three can
didates now in the ex-Senator
Chilcott, of Colorado; ex-Gov. Stone, of
lowa, and ex-Congressman Calkins, of
Indiana. It was reported yesterday the
president -had determined to appoint
Mr. Calkins because there seemed to be
no other way of settling the fight be
tween the other candidates. . The presi
dent stated to-day to Senator Teller,
however, that the matter had not been
settled and that M «-.' Calkins would not
be appointed. Ex-Senate Chilcott has
the backing of the senators from Minne
sota, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas,
and of Senator Higgins,' of Delaware.
Secretary Noble is said to favor the ap
pointment of.' Gov. Stone.

division, where they might have laid
unthought of for months.: during the
press of business, had it not been for
Senator Davis. He called on me Thurs
day and requested . consideration of the
case.. Of course, that was all that was
necessary, but, if Senator Davis had not
called, I might not have theught of it,
because these people keep me busy
looking af their wants." And the secre
tary looked about him at the crowd
which filled his room, all of them very
hungry and very thirsty.
