THE BANK IS -SOLVENT Unfounded Rumors About the Lumbermen's Exchange Bank of Brainerd. Its President Merely Going Out of Business Soon to Become Postmaster. South Dakota Prohibitionists to Raise $50,000 to Enforce the New Law. Fargo Burglars Make a Clerk Talk by Roasting His Feet. : Special to the Globe. Braixerd, Oct. 22.— Last evening a number of holders of cheeks drawn on the Lumbermen's Exchange Bank were surprised and considerably excited to hear that the bank had not paid or made good the checks which came into the First National bank in the tegular course of business. • From these the rumor spread that the Lumbermen's bank was in a bad way, and a run was certainly expected today. At the nomine hour of opening business there was at the Lumbermen's plenty of cash in sight to pay everybody, and also, con fidence was doubly restored by seeing that the new bank, called the Northern Pacific bank, had reopened for business in the same or part of the. same house.: There was no run on the Lumbermen's j and few people were around I-*- who wanted money. The Lumbermen's is a I> r vaie bank, owned by Col. ('.

He was BuUfcht at the bank by the Globe correspondent, and was not . in. but Cashier Simons stated that a little trouble they had about a small < draft had been ail fixed up, and that was all there was of it. Nome of the depositors and drawers of the checks spoken of claimed, however, that tiie . trouble was due to the action of Cashier Ferns, of the First, and charged that he urreed to hold certain checks for the Lumberman's., ami then as soon as the banK closed went out and presented i them for payment to the individuals, j So Cashier Ferris was . seen and denied any such tiling. • They held, he said, at the closing ! hour a number of checks on the Lumbermen's awaiting p. yine»it. and waited therefor until 0 o'clock, and then he went out and returned same to the makers to be made good, and as other was later about to be protested, the Lumbermen's officers got around and I took care of the paper. lie said, that was all there was of it. To add to the breeze there was known to be quite a sum of school money deposited with the Lumbermen's. Probably the uneasi ness has all grown out of the fact that the Lumbermen's is going Into liquida dation, in view of its owner. Col. Spauldinjr, going into the postoffice. The latter has been in the nankins five or six years, having succeeded to it on retirement of Keene & Nevins, who were the founders. Col.

Oct. 22.— Joseph De La Motte Jr., of Chippewa Falls, is the man who, acting as the husband of the wife of the once noted editor of the Chippewa Falls Independent, J. N. Phillips, brought himself into such notoriety about a year ago. He is again in trouble. This time he is charged with the abduction of Cora McCarthy,* daughter of a mail carrier of this city. The warrant for his arrest was served on him by Deputy Sheriff Conners to day, and he was brought to this city, and before Judge Marsh gayelSOO bonds for his appearance on Friday. The charge, is that he enticed and decoyed the young girl to a house of ill-tame on the outskirts of this city for the pur pose of prostitution. La Motte is a strikingly handsome man, and is pro prietor of a fashionable saloon in Chip pewa Falls. The McCarthy girl was placed as a dining room girl in the leading hotel here., and was thus thrown into contact with La Motte and other fast young men. Her ruin was soon accomplished.

Three stores had been broken into and robbed of hundreds of dollars' worth of goods, consisting of clothing, boots and shoes, tobacco, etc. One saloon had been robbed of money. liquors and cigars, and many things had been taken from private residences, they even going so far in one case as to steal a front door from its hinges during the absence of the family. When search was made much of the stolen property was discovered, some of it plowed under in a field not far from the house, some under a haystack and some in the house. These, robberies have been the most bold and audacious known in this vicinity for years. There is little doubt but that all the gang will goto the peni tentiary for a long term of years.

Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 22.— A spe cial to the Aue-Herald, from Lafayette, records a crime hi Tallapoosa coutny tliat has rarely been surpassed in its horrible details. It seems that while Albert Smith and his three oldest chil dren had gone some miles to church, live negroes approached the boose and asked Mrs Smith to give them some thing to eat. On being refused they went into the house, and, learning that there was no one home but Mrs. Smith and her babe, forced her into the yard and began ransacking the house. After appropriating all they could find in the way of money and valuables, they set the to th<^ house and ad. Ed horror to the terrible scene by forcing the distracted woman to witness tlie most brutal of findish deeds, which was the tossing of her little baby in the air and letting it fall back almost on the point of sharp knives, whicn they held under it. The brutes finally heeded the frantic wom an's entreaties and went away, leav ing her with nothing to greet the return oi her husband and children but her half-dead babe and a smouldering heap of coals. People for miles around have been searching lor the villains, and at last accounts three of the negroes had been captured. THE DRI'MMKK PRAYED, And the Lynching Proceeded lm- mediately Thereafter. Com'mjuts, S. C, Oct. 22.— Some very curious facts in connection with the re cent lynching of young Robert Berrler for the murder of his mother-in-law, near Lexinsrlon, N. C, have just come to light. A party, who witnessed the banging says Bertier was taken from the jail at half-past 7 and immediately carried to the outskirts of the town under a large oak tree. Here the mr»b stopped and asked the prisoner if he was ready to die. Berrier said he would be if he knew he would meet his wife and babe in heaven. '1 he mob then informed him that he. would be allowed time to pre pare for death. About this time a drum mer, who was in town, came upon the scene, and asked to be allowed to pray with the condemned man. His request was granted, and he knelt down by She side of Berrier and prayed very fer vently that God would save his soul. During the prayer many hearty "Amens"' and such responses as "Lord grant it."' etc., went up from the mob. For more than three hours prayer and regular religious services were con ducted. A few minutes before mid night Bcrrier expressed his willingness to die. He was then placed upon a horse, with a rope about his neck, and then as an appiopriate hymn was sung the horse was led from under him and the body left dangling in the air.

Brewster chums to have been defrauded out of $10,000 in cash and $6,000 on a note given to Pine in payment for an interest in mining prop erty in Pima county, Arizona, which was found to be worthless.

Bull, who, it is charged, acted in the mine sale as O. G. Petty, owner of the property. Pine, in his confession,states positively that Auditor Winram and John E.

Large Traffic in Slaves in Zanzi bar. | London, Oct. 22.— Letters from Zan zibar received at the office of the anti slavery society here report that the buying and selling of human chattels in the streets of that city is being car ried on with scarcely an attempt at con cealment. Weekly markets are held, at which slaves arc boldly exposed to the gaze of intending buyers, and in many cases each slave carries a placard' suspended from his neck, Upon which is written the price at which he can he bought. The women are not usually .ticketed In this way, but are Bold for what they will fetch,, the ordinary: price being from £G to £10 each, if they are young. The mer chants who Ty-'i ."n rr tfter --trftftif are all Arabs, but it. appears to be well understood in Zanzibar tfnrt*«Ticfr-tfrrn of traders, every member of which hails from England, furnishes all the capital to conduct the business, and that by far the largest share of their immense profits is derived from this traffic. All the local officials in Zanzi bar are said to be in the pay of this firm, who purchase immunity by brib ing the authorities from the highest to the lowest, and so complete is their in fluence that no complaint receives tie slightest attention. To illustrate the openness with which the traffic is car ried on. it is pointed out that the re ceipts of slaves every week are pub licly announced by placards upon the walls of the houses. The letters com plain that the representatives in Zanzi bar of the different European govern ments appear to take no interest what ever in these matters. Off lor Greece. Berlin, Oct.

A Congressman's Hard Work in Securing a Bride in Chicago. The Lady a Daughter of Col. Babcock, a Prominent Politician. Pitiful Story of a Girl Who Was Married at Fifteen and Deserted. How Albert Crenshaw Got Himself in a Boat by Mar rying Twice. Chicago, Och 22.— The friends gen erally of Congressman Abner Taylor, of the first district, may be surprised some what at the intelligence, now made pub lic for the first time, that the statesman has taken unto himself a wife and fur thermore that there is an interesting story thereunto belonging. In fact, Mr. Taylor's wedding has all the ele ments of the "Clarissa Harlowe" rom ance-love, unrelenting opposition by the stern, heartless, male parent, cland estine cooing, hazardous experiment, roughened pathways, flight, secret vows plighted before an unknown and cloaked priest, final success, and at last— if not free pardon and tears on the part of the unrelenting male parent —at least a grieved neutrality, which will serve nearly the same purpose. The lady in the case is the daughter of Col. A. C. Babcock, well known politically and at present a prominent candidate for the United States marshalship for the district of Northern Illinois. Mr. Taylor has for a long time been assidu ous in his suit for the hand of Miss Bab cock, but his attentions were unhappily frowned down by the colonel. But Cupid's arrows were never known to shiver on paternal anger, and they went through the armor this time, too. Col. Babcock, one line morning, awoke to receive the undeniable, if not too welcome tidings, that the con gressman and his daughter were wed ded in a little town in Michigan on the 7th of September iast, and that now it was all too late. Bride and bridegroom enjoyed the honeymoon in obscure fe licity until quite recently, when they returned to Chicago. Here they spent a few days. Yesterday afternoon they left Chicago to reside at Washington. '•It's all post-mortom now," said the rolonel last evening, "and 1 won't talk about it. 1 opposed it from the lirst, fought it, and did all I could to prevent - it, but Taylor is my son-in-law now, and I can't deny it. I don't know whiff they got married, and I don't care. It's all one whether it was in Michigan or New Jersey." WEDDED AT FIFTEEN. And Her Babe Dieil in Her Arms on a Train. Jamestown, N. V., Oct. 22.— A young Portuguese woman, giving her name as Maggie Simmons, arrived in this city about 1 o'clock to-day on the New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio railroad, with the body of a dead baby in her arms. When questioned by a reporter she told this story: "1 will be sixteen years old next Thanksgiving and have lived in Providence, H. I. I had been married to a young man in that place and just before my baby was born he went away in company with his mother and left me. 1 started for California, where I have relatives, as soon as 1 could after the birth of my child. Tula morning the baby seemed perfectly well, and only half an hour before reaching Jamestown I found it dead.' 7 The girl is without money or friends. A local un dertaker took charge of the body of the child and will have it interred here. The woman aud an acquaintance whom she met on the train and who stopped off here with her, will start again for California to-morrow morning. CREXSHAW A BIGA3IIST, And His First Wife Proposes to Send Him Up. Cleveland, 0., Oct. 22.— Early in September Albert B. Crensbaw and Alice Gray Wilson ran away from Tawa City, Mich., and on arriving in Detroit were married. After the ceremony they came to Cleveland and put up at the Hollenden. where they have since re mained at a cost of SIO per day. Mrs. Crenshaw is an heiress, a beau tiful woman, and but nineteen years old. In June, 18S8, Cren shaw was married to Miss Jen nie Evans at Chattanooga. Term. Miss Evans' home was in Oberlin, 0., a few miles west of Cleveland, aud she had some property, which Crenshaw de manded as soon as he married her. Not getting it, he deserted her. She applied for a dhoree, and three weeks beiore it was granted he married Miss Wilson. Mrs. Crenshaw heard all this to-day. She was quite equal to the occasion, for she immediately hired an attorney, swore out a warrant for Crenshaw's arrest, and to-night he is snug and tight in the county jail. She declares that she will prosecute him to the end and see that he goes to the penitentiary. SHY OF SARAH. Judge Deady Isn't Sure She Won't Shoot Him. Washington, Oct. 22. — Judge Matthew P. Deady, of the Oregon fed eral circuit and district court, before whom the famous Sharon-Hill case was brought !• a hearing, is in Washington. Judge Deady wrote the opinion declar ing the famous marriage contract a for gery, and JudgejSawyer wrote the con curring opinion. Being interviewed by a Post reporter, Judge Deady said: "I came East as a delegate to the Episcopal convention in New York. Yes, I sat in the Sharon-Hill case. The fact is, that woman was merely his mistress. He gave her $500 a month, furnished mag nificent quarters, and spent money on her lavishly. Hei influence on Judge Terry was undoubtedly bad. She urged him to acts beyond even his own inclination. In November she will be tried before me for resisting the authori ties. It is very likely that she may, at some favorable opportunity, attempt the lives of Justice Field, Judge Saw yer and myself. 1 predict she will die a violent death." Chose a Theatrical Man.

How a Wealthy Cottager Repaid a Conductor's Kindly Act. The Providence Journal relates a Newport incident of which a wealthy cottager was the hero. He had been to see the surf, and got a ducking from a big wave. He therefore started for home on one of the terrible electric cars which the cottagers so bitterly oppose. When the conductor came around he fumbled in his pockets for money to pay his fare, but in vain. The conductor offered to pay the fare out of his own pocket and trust his passenger for repayment. This offer was accept ed, and the indebted party asked the conductor where he could be found, to which the reply was given that he was either on the cars or at the car house most of the time. This did not satisfy him. and he wanted to know where he lived, as he said that his bene factor should be well paid for his trou ble. And so he was, for when he arrived home at breakfast the next morning he found a nice, fat letter awaiting him, and was greatly surprised upon open ing it, for folded in a large sheet of paper, without a word written on it, which gave the envelope a bulky ap pearance, there rested a single mole.' the fare charged jon the cars. On iho exterior of the envelope was the name -ofthe-man for whom the favor had been done. -«>— New Northwestern Postmasters. : : Washington, I).

PAPER COLLAR JOE, The Famous Bunco Steerer and General Confidence Shark, Alleged to Be Identical With Kray, the Local Sa loonist. Norris, the Detective. Traces Him Here, but Loses Kis Man. An Interesting Bit of History Connected With a Strange Story. Joe Kray, the qondam proprietor ol the saloon at 147 East Third street, is suddenly missing. About ten months ago his" interest in the saloon was turned over to his partner, Charles Gillespie, and Kray went to Paris, os tensibly to visit the exposition. He re turned to St. Paul last week, and was afiain seen about his old haunts. Gen erally regarded as a veiy '-smooth" party, he enjoyed a large circle of ac quaintances among a certain class of sports. When he returned from across the svater he was warmly greeted, and his frfrnda treated him to the best the town afforded. They were considerably surprised, however, at his sudden dis appearance. Some felt injured and were inclined t o believe that their fan cied illtreatment was the direct result of Joe's brief existence in gay Paris. A STOKY JS TOM) which may restore him to their good opinion. John T. Norrit=. a well-known Eastern detective, departed for his home yesterday morning, after spend ing several days in the city. To a re porter Norm stated that he came to St. Paul in questof a crook once well known as Paper Collar Joe. He also claimed to have proof that Paper Collar Joe was none other than Joe Bond, who did time at Auburn for card-sharping in In spector Byrnes' bailiwick, and that Joe Bond, tin- ex-convict, was none other than St. Paul's smooth saloonkeeper, Joe Kray. h\ ISSO Fanner Hober Spearg was tricked out of about $1,500 by cards at Columbia City, Ind. Many others of the too credulous of that section of the country were beaten in a similar manner. At a leathering of the mourners jt trans pired that they had all been victimized by the same parties, three smooth talk ers, and that their combined losses ag gregated nearly $20.0: :o. Their first move was to employ Norris to work up the case. Two of the fellows the detec tive eventually spotted, but the identity of the third still remains a mystery, though the trio hung together for some tune and operated successfully in the Southeastern states and on the lower Missis.Mssippi. The two whose identity he learned wore Paper Collar Joe and Denny Doherty. When the three men finally separated Dolierty went to Eu rope and Joe and the unknown became LOST TO TIIK DBTECTiyfi, Doherty sliot and killed a gambler named Joseph Graham during a row over cards in London, tor which crime lie is now doing time under Queen Vic toria. Aborit a year ago, the detective claims, he located Paper Collar Joe in this city, in the person of a Third street saloonkeeper; Before the arrest could be arranged, however, Kray went to Europe, where he was watched by for eisrn detectives, who report that he made money during his absence. When be arrived in New York on the 12th inst. the detective was notified, and laid traps for his arrest. Not appre ht'ndinirthe man wonted in the East, Norris telegraphed to St. Paul and learned that he was here. A second dispatch from Chicago asked that Kray be watched, and Norris came on in post hast. He arrived just late enough to miss his man, as Kray was well out of sight several hours before Norria limped up town from the union depot. The detective was considerably puz zlcil to know how Kray got his tip, but was inclined to believe that some 011 a on the '"inside" gave him warning. ksVp\\ Wd h.u k\V*s ~Vi\>er Collar lo?. ! \ v \ Ft> THE MAN DESCRIBED. The description of Kray, alias Joseph Bond, alias Paper Collar Joe, bunco steerer. published with the accom panying portrait in "The Professional Criminals of America," as issued by In spector Byrnes, of New York, in 1886, is as follows: Thirty-six years old in 1886, born In United" States! married, no trade, medium build, height 5 feet 7i*> inches, weight about 148 pounds, dark hair, hazel eyes, light complexion, generally wears sandy Bide whiskers and mustache, high forehead, looks somewhat like a Jew. i In St. Paul Kray was a hail fellow well met, and, while his place was fre quented by local gamblers, no crooked work done there ever came to liKht. He was probably personally known to every city and private detective in St. Paul, but whether his past record, as detailed by Mr. Norris, was known to them will probably never be known. Kray'a friends, while admitting that his past record is a trifle shady, allege that Nor ris is simply using extreme measures to collect an old debt. His course, they say, amounts to but little less than the persecution of a man who is trying to lead an honest life. ■ .■ -^ Father and Son. : Clothier and Furrier.
