HE WILL M SIGN, Sitting- Bull Still Bitterly Op posed to the Opening of the Reservation. fie Refuses to Believe the Re ports Brought in From Rosebud Agency. John Medley, a Prominent Citizen of Wisconsin, Shot Dead by a Tough. Murray County Voters Much Excited Over Locating a County Seat. f pecial to the Globe. Bismarck, Dak., June 10.— Couriers just arrived from Standing Rock report Sitting Bull, the notorious Sioux chief, as alive aud slowly growing stronger. In an interview with regard to the proposed openiug of the reservation for settlement, he said he never signed a treaty ancl never would. He is as bitterly opposed to the opening of the reservation now as he was a year ago. When told of the number of Indians at the lower agencies who are signing, he would not believe it. He said he had Indians at the lower conference who reported to him, and lie knew that no such number as reported have signed. He is cunning and suspicious and thinks the commis sioners are giving out the reports to in fluence the Indians at the upper aeen cies. There is every reason to believe that the commissioners will succeed in opening the reservation, but they must do it without the aid or consent of Sitting Bull and his friends. When asked if he thought he would die, Sitting Bull said at first he Celt sure that he must go, as the trouble was with his heart, which felt as though he had been shot. He now has some hope of recovery. The Indians at Standing Rock have chosen the orators to represent them at the coming confer ence, but Sitting Bull is not one of the chosen. Those elected are Gall, John Grass, Mad Bear, Big Head and Eagle- That-Scares. AT PINE RIDGE AGENCY. The Commission Meeting With Considerable Opposition. Pine Ridge Agency, Dak.. June 16. —The Commissioners were informed the Cheyennes desired to have a dialect conference, as they did not understand the language used yesterday. An in quiry developed the fact that when the Cheyennes were leaving their camps for this caucus the Sioux soldiers interfered and told them they must not talk to the commissioners. This action indicates tlie policy of Red Cloud and his follow ers, and is in line with their conduct yes terday. The Cheyennes were given a separate audience and the bill carefully explained in their own language. They express satisfaction frequently. It seems now that the mixed bloods are in favor of ratifying the bill, and that the opposition to it is mainly confined to Red Cloud's followers. The Sioux In dians had a council with each other this morning while the commissioners were talking with the Cheyennes. At this council there was considerable ex citement. About fifteen chiefs, spoke in opposition to signing the bill, giving as reasons that the government had not fulfilled the promises of the treaty of 1868. Other objections were made, mainly such as were urged at Rosebud. They endeavored to nledge their bands to act together, or in other words, to enforce the caucus sys tem. No Flesh said that he was in favor of singing: that he was think ing about the future; that he wanted his children to be further advanced than he was. That when they attended school and learned what' the white man learned they wanted to act as the white men acted; that he believed the only way to bring about this was to take ud land and get papers for it; that he should sign no matter who objected, and that if any one tried to prevent he would make them cry. American Horse took the same side,' though less emphatic than No Flesh. Old-Man- Afraid-of-His-Horses, the former great chief, said that he was too old to try and control his young men. Here he warned them to think for themselves and then to do as they thought best. Bed Cloud's influence for the time seems to prevail with apparent una nimity. KILLED BY A TOUGH. Fatal Shooting at the Town of Dry-wood, Wis. Special to the Globe. . Chippewa Falls, June During the progress of a dance at Drywood, a little settlement in this county, sixteen miles from here, last^iight. John Med ley, a well-known resident, was shot and Killed by William Nolan. The shooting originated in a drunken quar rel, in which Nolan boasted of his ability to whip the whole Medley fam ily. When his ability was subjected to a test, he resorted to the revolver with the above result. Nolan immediately took to the woods after firing the cow ardly sW>., and has not been captured. He is a Kentuckian of the Jesse James stamp, and bears a hard reputation. The citizens of Drywood, in connection with the authorities, are scouring the woods in search of him, and his capture is but a question of a few days. CURRIE OR SLAYTON. A Warm Fight in Murray County Over a County Seat. Special to the Globe. Currie, Minn., June 16.— The special election for the removal of the county seat to Slay ton was held last Tuesday. It was a very close election, with ap parently a "small majority in favor of Slayton. The commissioners met Fri day to canvass the vote, but were en joined and are now adjourning from day to day until a hearing is had on the writ next Tuesday. Currie will no doubt hold the county seat, as a remonstrance was filed before action was had on the petition for the calling of the election reducing it below the number required under the law. The commissioners dis regarded the remonstrance on this ground, it is claimed, that the election is unauthorized. This election was the hottest in some parts of the county ever held. /< * .*.

M a.kie, June Late last night William Tate, engineer of the tug Pioneer, was arrested for the mur der of his brother Tom. The two broth ers had some words in the lock in the afternoon, when Tom attacked his brother David, the captain of the tug. The murdered man was intoxicated and desired his brother to take him on the craft to his home on Sugar island. This he refused to do, and he started home. The two met again a few hours later at Sugar island, and the quarrel was re newed. After Tom had driven his brother away for the third time the lat ter made an attack on . him with a club, but was downed. His brother choked him and kicked him several times in the ribs. The last time he kicked his brother he gave a gasp or two for breath and expired. The murdered man was engineer on one of the tugs here and the murderer was engineer of the tug Pioneer. FELL. IN THE LAKE. A Well-Known Citizen of Brown County Drowned. Special to the Globe. Sleepy Eye, Minn., June Fred Schleisner, an old resident of Brown county, was found under strange cir cumstances lying in the lake about half a mile from the village by a couple of fishermen early this morning. Foul play was at first suspected on account of a few bruises on his head. Coroner Humphrey was immediately notified and ordered the inquest to be held at once. After due deliberation the jury decided that he came to his death by falling in the lake while under the in fluence of liquor. Mr. Schleisner was about sixty years of age and leaves a family.

Forged a Check. Special to the Globe. Mankato, June 16.— E. J. Roberts, an employe of the Mankato cement works, forged a check yesterday for $65, and skipped to parts unknown. He went into the saloon of Casper Waltz, where he bought a drink, and then pre sented the check for payment, which was immediately cashed. Mr. Waltz was not aware that he had been de frauded until he had presented the check at the Citizens' National bank, where its payment had been refused. The check had the name of F. N. Mer rill, manager of the cement works, signed to it. Roberts was employed as timekeeper at the works. Officers are now in pursuit. Commencement at Madison. Special to the Globe. Madison, Wis., June 16.— The com mencement week exercises of the uni versity of Wisconsin opened this after noon with the baccalaurate address, de livered by President Chamberlin.

Washington, June 12.— The Sunday Herald to-day says: "One of the great est trials the navy department has to encounter is the remarkable manner in which the contractors for the new ships are acting. The Petrel and Baltimore are months behind, and the govern ment is exacting from each a daily pen alty. It was expected that the Balti more would have been completed in every respect by this time, but the con tractors now announce that a private trial of the vessel's machinery will be made this week for their exclusive use, The official trial is a matter of the dim future, as it is almost certain that a number of defects will be discovered, which will have to be remedied. In re gard to the Peirel, the Columbia Iron Works, of Baltimore. Md., which had the contract for this ship, found it more advantageous for them to finish a fleet of ferryboats for the railroad company than fulfill their contract with the United States. They could make more money by paying the government a penalty of $100 per day and working on the ferryboats than they could had they finished the Petrel. Of course this state of affairs could not last forever, and lately the navy department has received word that the ship is about ready for her official trial. The accident to the Charleston will delay her second trial at least two months, as it has become nec essary to procure new slides for those damaged in the recent trial in Santa Barbara channel. While the contract ors look upon the accident as most trivial in character and importance, the fact that it takes such a length of time to repair it looks to the average layman that the accident is more extended than was given out. At any rate, it will be welcome news when one of the ships is ready to be turned over to the govern ment to be utilized for effective serv ice." '. "_" . * Vessels Reported Lost.

Woodruff Makes a "Confes sion " Discrediting His Former Statements. He Now Figures in the Role of an Ex-Member of the Canadian Militia. Alexander Sullivan and Other Prominent Men Implicated in Cronin's Murder. His Lengthy Story, However, Has a Remarkably Strong Piscatorial Flavor. Chicago, June 16.— A1l previous "confessions" of Woodruff, the horse thief, who has been indicted for com plicity in the Cronin tragedy, were eclipsed this morning in an entirely new story from him published in an extra edition of the Times. He contradicts and discredits every other "statement" heretofore attributed to him, and now appears in the role of an ex-member of the Canadian militia, claiming that he FRANK WOODRUFF. was trusted by Cronin's alleged mur derers because he furnished Fenian spies with valuable information during the military raids into Canada. Wood ruff says he arrived in Chicago March 16 and obtained work from a graener on Southport avenue, not far from the Carlson - cottage. After three or four days' work for the gardener Woodruff was taken sick. His narrative says: "With the intention of going to the county hospital, I drifted into O'Sullivan's place. I made up my mind that he was a Fenian,aud reminded him of certain scenes during the Fenian raid into Canada. I went over during that raid as a volunteer in the Twenty fourth Kent battalion, whose headquar ters were at Chatham. We went as far as. Niagara. At that time I was as signed to the adjutant's department, and gave to some Fenian spies who came to our camp such points 1 learned while in that place. That was my first connection with the : Clan-na-Gael. O'Sullivan told me he would get me some work if possible. .: From there 1 came down and . yy WENT TO WORK at Dean's livery stable." Wood ruff tells ; that he met Detec tive Coughlin soon afterward and had a drink with him, * conveying the impression that Coughlin knew Woodruff to be a thief, and Woodruff believed the detective to be a "Fenian." While walking to-gether they met O'Sullivan, the ice man. O'Sullivan mentioned Woodruff's request for em ployment, and Coughlin quizzed Wood ruff that a man in his line should want "work.". .Woodruff, persisted that he was laboring for his board and. clothes at the livery stable. Coughlin and O'Sullivan went off together. "That was about the 2d of April," continues Woodruff. "Melville arrived in Chica go about this time (this is the first men tion of Melville in theo'confession').* l know this, because a day or two afterward I was over on the South side and went into the 'Owl' saloon, which is kept by Sol Van Praig. I had been over on Fourth avenue before that. I went into a back room and saw Melville and Coughlin drinking together. This was in the evening. 1 knew Melville, as I had met him in California. He was a great friend of Desmond aud 'Sand lot' Kearney during the labor troubles there. After taking several drinks to gether Coughlin left us, saying he had to keep an engagement." Melville and Woodruff, so the latter says, made the rounds of the disreputable houses in the neighborhood for an hour or more, and then Melville took leave, say ing he was stopping at McCoy's hotel. Woodruff complained of being "broke," and Melville gave him $2 or ¥3, saying: . "I want to see you again." Two days afterward Woodruff - attempted to see Melville at McCoy's, and looked over the register and made INQUIRIES OF THE CLERK, but did not press to see Melville, not wishing to create suspicion. "Going north." Woodruff continues, "I met McDougal near the Northwestern depot, and Coughlin was with him. (This is the first mention of McDougall.) As I came up Coughlin said : 'Good, he is just the man I want to see.' Turn ing to McDougall, he said: 'Are you acquainted?' I replied, 'I guess I ought to know Mac' McDougall turned to me and said: 'That will do. My name is Williams.' I laughed, and said: 'A rose by any other name would probably be as sweet.' I had known McDougall, or, as he now called himself, Williams, as a rough-and-ready spirit, and an old worker for the Clan-na-Gael, although during the intermediate time he had worked as a blacksmith. Coughlin and McDougall had quite a talk while I waited. After a talk, which I did not hear, Coughlin left, saying he had some business. As soon as Coughlin was out of sight Williams said to me: 'Come on.' " In a saloon subsequently, Williams said, so the story states : " 'How are you fixed?'* " I said, lam nearly busted.' He said " 'Why don't you go down and see Alexander. Sullivan?' " and I said I was not prepared to be sent to Europe. Williams turned to me, and, looking me squarely in the face, said it would not be necessary for me to ;be sent out of town in this case." The pair proceeded, Woodruff declares, to 117 Clark street. This is the place where, as ; has : fre quently been published, the furniture of » y THE CARLSON COTTAGE was first stored. Woodruff says he de , manded to know what he would have to SAINT PAXIL, MINN., MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 17, 1889. do. Williams replied: "■' You need not know anything about it. It is a deal, and you will not be implicated.' Turn ing around, and looking me straight in the face, he asked ' 'Are you one of them still He referred to my helping the Fenians at the time of the Canada raid. I replied: 'I am as much as I ever was.if I am paid for it.' "This was about the - 20th of April. On leaving, Williams aerain urged him to go over and see Alexander Sullivan. Wood ruff's narrative proceeds: "I went to Dean's barn and thought the matter over, and then returned and applied at Alexander Sullivan's. Alexander Sulli van was not in *■ his office, but, going out, I met him in the hall before I reached the eleva tor. I said; 'Mr. Sullivan, McDougall sent me over to see you.' "Mr. Sullivan said: 'McDougall. Oh, you mean Williams, dont you?' 1 said Yes, 1 guess so; I slept with him last night. He wanted me to go over and have a talk with you.' Alexander Sul livan replied: T have nothing to say; 1 have never met you before, 'Well,' I replied, 1 think 1 have met you before, although I have grown out of your recollection since : I came from Canada. 1 have but lately returned from California." ." Sulli van repeated his first answer: "I don't recollect you. I have never met you before.' 1 told him I was ; . ■_ ;V : LOOKING FOR A JOB. and Williams had recommended me to him. He said: 'No, I have no work for anybody. Are you a stranger here?' I said: 'Oh, I have only a few scqnaint ances.' He asked: 'What kind of work would you like?' I said : 'Anything in Cod's world, if there is any money in it.' He looked at me sharply and re plied: 'If 1 hear of anything for yon I'll let Mr. Williams know of it ' and walked away without even saying good bye to me. I met Williams an hour afterward going out of his room on Clark street. We took a grip car and came over on the North side. I told him I had seen Sullivan, and he asked: 4 What did he say?' I said: 'He came pretty near telling me to go to hell without doing it.' " Soon " after this they met Sullivan on the street. He took .Williams on one side and handed him money, saying: "Now pay that rent." Then, seeing Woodruff, Sullivan told him he must not take offense at his manner the previous day, as be was very busy, and bad.a great many applications for jobs. The Wednesday before the murder Woodruff met Coughlin, who asked him to take a note over to Sullivan. This note was in cipher, the same as had been :;,, USED BY THE FENIANS when Woodruff was at Niagara. Wood ruff looked at it and says it read: "Going up toP. O'Sullivan's." The re mainder of his confession deals mainly with the night of the murder. Cough lin, so Woodruff alleges, paid him §25 to bring to Lincoln avenue from Dean's livery stable a conveyance in which a trunk could be carried, Near Ashland and Lincoln avenues Melville and a man named O'Shea, alias Mike Mc- Dougal, joined Woodruff. The letter says this man was a machinist or black smith from Philadelphia, but that he had known him in Wichita, Kan. Met ville, he said, he had also met before in Peoria, in connection with Irish affairs. They drove ; out to Carlson cottage, reaching there about 2a. m. The two men went in, and soon after P. O'Sulli van and Williams came out of the door carrying a trunk, which^hey placed in the wagon. Here follows a new vereion of the ride.with the trunk and the dis posal of the body in the sewer; Wood ruff now says the intention was to have the trunk sunk in Lake Michigan off Lincoln Park, but, thinking they were pursued, the plan _ was abandoned. Woodruff claims that Cronin's in strument case was probably buried or thrown in the lake by Melville and Williams when they left the wagon in the woods for a short time at Edge water. He does not know what dispo sition was made of the clothing. Wood ruff concludes with an assertion that he has recently been . approached by : a lawyer, who offered to take his case gratuitously, and that this lawyer had said to keep . . • ' STRICT SILENCE, as Alexander Sullivan's attorney would work in unison, and that one of Sulli van's bondsmen had agreed to pay for Woodruff's defense. The climax of the whole "confession" is an assertion by Woodruff that all his previous alleged "confessions" are * bogus, and that this is "the first and only statement 1 have made since my arrest," the intima tion being that the only, "con fessions" were given circulation by interested persons to create the impres sion that he (Woodruff) was a liar. A : visit was made to Woodruff at the jail this afternoon for the purpose of learn ing further details of his last startliug confession. The prisoner was found deeply engrossed in the preparation 'of another confession, which he says is to be much more sensational than any of the preceding ones. Woodruff this aft ernoon reiterated his confession pub lished this morning, but on close exam ination subsequently altered it in many important particulars. Headmitted that he was only twenty-nine years old, but' insisted that he took an active part in the Fenian rebellion. ' He says it oc curred in 1873, but his date does not agree with history. He says he went to the flat at 117 South Clark street on April 2, but the facts are that the flat was not rented by the mysterious Simons after March 22, for on that date the furniture was all , ; i . REMOVED FROM THE FLAT. . '// ; ; and taken to the cottage. He says that he met ■ Melville April 2 at McCoy's hotel, but the register shows that Mel ville left that hotel on March 20, and did not return until May 3. The pris oner this afternoon makes the startling statement that he was with Dr. Cronin and P. O'Sullivan the nigh*, of and pre vious to the murder of the former. '."-: "But you say in tne published - con fession that yon played cards all night with the three men, and that you did ' not leave the stable until 11:30 o'clock." Woodruff hesitated a moment', and said: ••Yes, that is my defense." . y ; "Then it is not true?" ' "Well, I saw Cronin that night, and I had a good look at him." '• _ "Then you must have known it was his body in the trunk?" "Why, I might as well plead guilty as answer that question." -. 1 .. "Did you have a good look at the body when it was taken out of the trunk?" yi "No I did not. It was very dark." _. ■. "Why did you tell ' this last story or . confession after you had told so many others?" '-"'•...? d "Well, I was promised the influence of a great paper in my behalf. ' They ..' said I would get the best side of the business." ' The only evidence that the police place any reliance in Woodruff's latest "confession" .is the fact _ that Lieut. Schuttler and his men went to the foot of Graceland avenue this afternoon and searched in the sand for Dr.- Cronin's medicine case, . which Woodruff ■ says was concealed there , by Williams and Melville. The officers dug up . an acre of ground along the beach, but found nothing. .'- ■ • *■*- "V . ; j'-. MARONEY AND M'DONALD.

An Exciting Closing Game Be* tween St. Paul and Denver. : Umpire Cusick failed to put in an ap pearance at Athletic park yesterday \ afternoon, and Kirby, they Denver; ; pitcher, was chosen umpire. In the last half of the first he gave Denver . three . runs by declaring Silch safe at . first when plainly out, and' the specta tors made it decidedly warm for him the rest of the game. * The excitement s increased in the second inning when he cut off • a St. Paul run by declaring Tuckerman out on strikes, the batsman, being hit -on the third strlKe by the . : ball,; .'which rolled to the back stop. This decision, however, "was correct under : the revised :. rules, The contest.' was ' very close, which ! caused the onlookers to perspire freely ■ and talk incessantly. First Denver took a good lead, then St. Paul tied the score in the third inning : in the fourth the : Colorado team gained a couple of laps; out in the seventh St. Paul mixed a trio of hits with errors and fine base running, ana made the score 8 to 6 in favor of the home team. Daly clinched the victory '. in the eighth by pasting the leather far : over the right field fence. The game "was called at the end of this inning to permit the two teams to take the 5:45 train, St. Paul going to Sioux City, *' and Denver, home. Silch ; made a great catch of Tuck erman's fly in* deep center in the fourth inning, and Werrick and Wagen hurst did some -pretty work in . the field. Dawes opened the initial inning with a good hit to center, and - was retired on Murphy's grounder to short, the. latter reaching first. Car ; roll's hit sent Murphy along a base, and Reilly's hit scored him. Werrick's grounder to Shores reached second ahead of Reilly and.first ahead of Wer , rick. In the last half of the inning ; Dalrymple waited for a base on bad ' balls, took second on McClellan's grounder to first, went to third on Tred ; way's hit to left, and scored on Farmer's ! high throw to catch Tredway at second, the latter going to third. Rowe struck : out and Silch hit the ball to Reilly, who threw a little • wide to first, but •Hawes got back to the base in ample time. Kirby didn't see it that way, however, and called Silch safe, Tred -1 way scoring. Dolan then knocked the ball over, the right-field fence, and Shores, the seventh man at bat, was re tired from third to first. In the third inning Hawes again opened with a good hit to right center, but was retired ih an ! attempt to take a brace of sacks on it. , Dalrymple fumbled Murphy's dust-dis : turber, and Carroll took a base on balls. Dolan took Reilly's high foul fly, but hits to center by Werrick and Wagen hurst enabled three men to score. In the fourth inning, after Silch and Do lan had gone out, the latter on Shores' grounder to short, Twine ham hit for" a double, and Fagan for a single, two runs - crossing the rub ber. Matters ran along this way until the seventh, when- Farmer, the .first man to swing the "wagon tongue," hit to center field for a sack. Tuckerman was retired on a fly to right, but Hawes' clipper went between McClellan's legs and Murphy's got away from Twine ham. Carroll put in a good single to left, Reilly struck . out, and Werrick's single brought in the fourth run. As before noted, Daly landed the ball out side the fence in the eighth. Denver I tried hard in the last half of the inning to add to its score, but without success. The attendance was about 2,000.

' . DUKE WAS WILD And the . Omahas Won Without Serious Difficulty. " 4 Special to the Globe. 1/. Omaha, JuM 16.— Notwithstanding the threatening weather, there was a tremendous ciowd at the park to-day to j welcome Omaha home. It was hot enough to roast turkey, but it was base ball weather, and the sturdy Minue apolitaiis recognized it as such, for the Black Socks came within a single point of shutting them out without a run. Duke, for the visitors, made the Omahas think they; didn't know a little bit about batting. In the first two innings he held them strictly down to a diet of thin air, but their bats are good and long, and . they managed before the game closed to get in just the right number of hits to add another victory to their string.

THREE IN_A TRUST. A Trio of New Yorkers Get a Corner on Sugar in a Peculiar Way. • How a Sugar Merchant, a Truckman and a Clerk Made $8,000. Two Missourians Engage in & Fierce and Fatal Fight Over a Woman. At Least Three Persons Killed in the Affray at Cedar Creek, Tex. New York, June 16.— Three mem who formed a sugar trust in a rathe< unique way, and who have been making a small fortune for the past three years*, have come to grief and are now prison* ers at headquarters. They are George H. Coggeswell, John Mohler and Mr. Vantine, of the firm of Vantine & Wehn mann, grocers, of 37 Spring street. Coggeswell has been the trusted truck* man of the Brooklyn Sugar Kenning company for years. Mohler has been receiving clerk for the firm of Austin, Nichols & Co., the wholesale grocers aft 55-61 Hudson street. A member of the latter firm recently called on Inspector Byrnes and informed him that their firm was being robbed of sugar in some unaccountable way. Detectives were at once put on the case, and thejs soon discovered that Coggeswell and Mohler were in collusion. They subse quently learned .that when Coggeswell was sent with twenty-five barrels oil sugar to be delivered to Austin, Nichols & Co. he always left ten of the barrels at the store of Vantine & Wehrmann. and that Mohler would always sign foe the receipt of twenty-five barrels at the store of Austin, Nichols & Co. The three prisoners have confessed to tho theft, but- Vantine claims that he be* lieved the sugar he received came direct from the refinery. He had been paying. $10 a barrel for loaf sugar and $12 foE granulated. This is about one-half ofl the real value. During the existence ot this system of theft it is estimated that upward of 350 barrels of sugar have been stolen. The aggregate value is about $8,000. The courts will probably have to decide whether the Brooklyn; Sugar Refining company or the firm of Austin, Nichols & Co. will sustain th? 1055. ., ..■■3&SB_W2£__m_%&S3_w& OVER A WOMAN.
