Result of a Debate Between High
School Pupils.
The forensic champions of the St.
Paul and Minneapolis high schools ap
peared before an appreciative Min
neapolis audience last night in
the high school hail, and for
three long hours wrestled in
debate. The hall contained almost its
entire capacity of beardless young men
and rosy-cheeked maidens, with here
and there a gray beard. The only mar
ring feature of the evening was a crowd
of boys in the back part of
the room, whose conduct and antics
were decidedly of the hoodlum order,
although their apparel would lead one
to expect better breeding. The subject
under discussion was; "Resolved That
the telegraph system should be owned
and controlled by the government."
The conditions imposed were that
there should be no discussion
as to ways and means of purchasing the
telegraph system, and that all argu
ments should be based upon the as
sumption of exclusive ownership by the
government. President Sebring. of the
lankato board of education; School
Supt. Brackett, of Mankato; Judge
Frederick Hooker, of Minneapolis, and
Albert (Hind, of St. Paul, were
judges. Their decision was upon argu
ments alone, and was in favor Ot the St.
Paul representatives. Samuel Mills
and Elsie Hasenwinkle upheld the
honor and dignity of St. Paul on the
affirmative side, and A. 11. Heli
well and Edward S. Avery did
the same for Minneapolis on the
negative. The evening's entertainment
was opened by a banjo selection by
Messrs. Gale, Gaus and Shibley. after
which Samuel Mills launched into the
debate, lie had his subject well in
hand, covered the ground pretty
thoroughly and made his points
without much unnecessary circum
locution. He first took the re
sult of governmental control "of the
harnessed lightning in the European
countries anil the resulting advantages
of cheap rates, argued that such control
is constitutional, maintained that the
telegraph system is. or should be. a par
allel case with the postal system, as
serted that this great invention
should be used for the general
welfare instead of for the
private benefit ot individuals, ami closed
with a severe roast of the Western On
ion and the way in which it hampers
the freedom of the press. Mr. Mill's
arguments were not based on generali
ties, but he had facts to back up
his statements, and had evi
dently studied his subject. He
was followed by A. L. lleliwell on the
negative side, who said the loss from
government control would be greater
than the gain. He thought railroad,
telephone and express lines, steam
ships, cable systems, fisheries, insur
ance companies, theaters, and in
fact all industries, could as well
be owned by the government
as the telegraph system. In fact the
country might as well adopt commun
ism and become as describe in "Looking
Backward." He asserted that the
"Western Union is a monopoly only on
low rates and rapid transmission of bus
iness. He argued that, if all things were
taken into account, the postage system
is a money loser, and the telegraph,
under government control, would be
more so. Elsie Hazenwell, of St. Paul,
had the audience with her. because of
her bright, winsome face, and her argu
ments showed that her brain
was no less bright than her
face. She covered the same ground
as did Mills. Then came E. S. Avery
for Minneapolis, who enlarged a little
upon the tracK laid out by lleliwell.
The debate was not finished until after
11 o'clock, and the results were greeted
With tumultous applause.
The Leper Priest.
The rooms of the Brownson Catholic
club were crowded with people last
evening to listen to the lecture on
Father Damien, the "Leper Priest,"
which was delivered by Miss M. Helen
Flavin. In opening her lecture Miss
Flavin gave an interesting description
of the situation and nature of" the
Hawaiian Islands ami of their extent
and geological structure. She described
the nature of the people and the
government which existed before the
discovery of the islands by Capt. Cook.
Thellawaiian islands are twelve in num
ber, and are of volcanic origin, being
almost equidistant from Japan, China,
Mexico, and the United States. In 1819
the United States had the honor of send
ing the first missionaries to these islands,
in which the greatest lawlessness ami
idolatry prevailed. A century ago the
population exceeded 400,000, while at
the present time but 40,000 re
main, all of which is duo to
the fell scourge of leprosy.
The people refuse to take proper pre
cautions against it. and there seems to
he no way to prevent the spread of the
disease. In 18G6 Father Damien volun
tarily went to Molaqui, where the hope
less cases of leprousy were banished,
and there threw himself into the work
of improving their moral and physical
condition. Food was procured in greater
abundance through his influence; and,
after remaining ten years among them,
he himself fell a victim to the plague, a
martyr to the cause of religion.

Widely Divergent Stories in
the Salacious Moore Di
vorce Case.
Evidently Some of the Wit
nesses Have Forgotten a
Good Deal.
Ex-Gov. St. John, of Kansas,
Talks to a Crowd on Pro
Judge Emery Disposes of the
Sawyer Case— General
News of a Day.
Everybody connected with the Moore
divorce case was on hand early yester
day morning. Senator dough's appear
ance, accompanied by a strange lady,
created a slight ripple of interest. The
lady turned out to be Mrs. Freese, an*
old friend of Mrs. Jdoore. The witnesses
sworn for the plaintiff were mainly to
corroborate evidence of the former wit
nesses. Moore was put on the stand by
the defense, but was only partially ex
amined. The only other witness sworn
Dy the defense was W. N. Webster,
proprietor of Webster's European hotel,
at 462 St. Peter street, St. Paul. He
was depended upon to prove the charges
against Senator Clough and Mrs. Moore,
but he turned out to be a valuable wit
ness for the plaintiff.
Senator Clough was the first witness
on the stand. He was questioned re
garding some points of his previous
story, particularly with reference to
the money which he paid out for the
Moores on the Boston trip. He had be
fore stated that, lie had borne all the ex
penses of the trip, but said yesterday
morning that .Moore had paid him back.
Mrs. Moore followed Clough on the
stand. Her evidence was much the i
same as given the day before, and she j
was recalled yesterday for the purpose
of refreshing the points previously
Mrs. Freese was next called. She is
an old friend of Mrs. Moore, and has
known that lady since her childhood.
She said that, as a child, Mrs. Moore
was of a particularly sensitive nature
and was always much affected by even
the slightest scolding. Mrs. Moore's
character, she said, had always been of
the highest. :;-■"/.
After Mrs. Freese came Mrs. Will
iam A. Shaw, who corroborated the tes
timony of Mrs. Freese relative to the
sensitive nature and good character of
Mis. Moore. This testimony was in
troduced to show that a woman of Mrs.
Moore's temperament would be likely
to suffer mentally from the habits to
which Moore is said to be a slave.
Dr. C. A. McCollom then appeared
and took the witness chair. He had
been subpoenaed merely as an expert,
and claims to have known nothing about
the Moore case until he appeared in the
court room. He said he had large
experience m dealing with men
suffering from Moore's alleged hab
its, and had treated persons - who
had become insane through over-indul
gence therein. He said that men sub
ject to such practices are like the wind
nothing can be told one minute as to
what they will do the next. He was
sharply questioned by Attorney Laing,
on cross-examination, as to what he
would say in general of such men, and
promptly replied;
"They are all liars."'
His examination did not consume
much time, and when he left the chair
"Dr." John A. Moore took his place.
moose's story;
Moore's lish-like expression never
changed when lie went on the stand.
He continued to elevate his eyebrows
every half-minute, and an occasional
drop of water trickled from his optic,
lie told his story in a subduedly melo
dramatic manner, as one who was
utterly crushed in spirit. At limes his
tone was quite low, and the Globe re
porter now has corns on bis ear where
it was pressed against the cold, unyield
ing wall in an effort to caich every
word. Sometimes words were lost, but
from what was heard the substance of
Moore's testimony can be given.
After the birth of their child Lotta,
the doctor told him that another child
birth would be likely to prove fatal "to
Mrs. Moore. During all the years in
the East which were inharmonious, the
Shaws always treated him finely. Mrs.
Shaw treated him better than his own
mother. lie was in the habit of
furnishing the Shaws with money
in advance for board and continued
boarding with the Shaws, until a cer
tain sum which he says he had advanced
Mrs. Shaw, had been boarded out. lie
and his wife never had any pitcher,
washbowl, towel or light in their room.
In March, '£:", he accused her of being
pregnant, claiming to know it from cer
tain evidences. Then he accused her of
Infidelity, and she cried nearly all one
night. Moore says he did not think her
infidelity had been with Horace
more than with two other men. He
said that Ida (Mrs. Moore) then con
fessed her guilt. Skelton was accused
by Moore, but denied it. telling Moore
"Stab me in the heart." Mrs. Moore
then resorted to abortion, he said, and
the child was born dead. He never
talked of it to any one but Mr. and Mrs.
Shaw, and to them only once.
Mrs. Moore refused to promise to do
better. Skelton never again admitted
his guilt. Their domestic difficulties
were usually on account of the Skelton
matter. He used to ask her "How does
a man know that this is his child?"
When she, as he thought, took the $40
he told her that she must be keening a
man. He asked her "How do
1 know that I am the father of Lotta?''
and "How do 1 know that Dug Cline is
not her father?" Mrs. Moore always
kissed him when he went away or come
home. "I did everything I "could to
make her happy."
Moore's answers to questions were at
times slightly contradictory. Once he
said: "There was no occasion for my
finding fault at Shaw's;" and again":
"Mrs. Shaw at times made it very disa
greeable." He said that his im
moral practices, as alleged in the
complaint, were not of his
own volition, but of his wife's.
As to the piano factory scan
dal, she denied the allegations regard
ing his scandalous operations with boys.
He quit work there and kept away from
the shop because of the eruptions on
his face caused by eczema, and because
he did not want to see his own face he
put something over the mir
ror In his room. He said
he told the Shaws and a friend of the
occurrences at the factory, and was ad
vised to leave town. Mrs. Moore lias an
amiable disposition, except that she is
stubborn. took pride in my wife,"and
when they had no girl he used to do tho
washing, ironing and dish washing. He
did it to preserve her rosy cheeks. He
never thought of throwing Mrs. Moore
out of the window.
When the doughs and Mrs. Moore
were in California he wrote her that he
was sick to see her. Everything
was all right at Hough's until after the
trip to California. After Mrs. Moore's
return she would not talk about her
California trip, and she did not mani
fest any affection for him. Shortly
after her return she and Lotta, her
daughter, went out, he supposed
to Clough's. He went to Clough's
In the evening. Clough told him that
Mrs. Moore could get a divorce and
keep Lotta,' too. Moore replied that he
knew things about Mrs. Moore that
would prevent it. Then he had a lit,
heard roaring in his ears and screamed,
"Lotta, they shall not take you from
me!" He had rather lose a hand than
his daughter. Mrs. Shaw once said:.
"I wouldn't be • bossed around by any
such man as J. A. Moore."
He told her not to go to the wedding
of Clough's daughter because he "hated
Clough as he did :, the . devil."
At that time he suspected Clough
of- undue intimacy - with Mrs.
Moore. 'He suspected them be
cause she did not seem to care for her ;
husband any more. He could not prac
tice, so it was necessary that he should
be at peace with all the world. He was
suspicious all the time after the return
from California, and refused to speak to
Clough. He never made a threat to
ward Mrs. Moore at any time.
He bad known Jellsett since last
March: knew him to be a lustful young
man. The conversations sworn to by
Jellsett were strictly against Christian
doctrine. He never attempted the vile
practices with Jellsett, but Jell
sett ' frequently did it him
self. He. never made a confident
of Clough nor accused Mrs. Moore to
the latter. Hs didn't remember John
Parmentier, who made the damaging
statements Thursday, but upon looking,
found Parmentier's name on his books.
Had known Mrs. Jellsett about a
year. The first time he met her
her conversation' was so low and vul
gar that he had to put her out of the
room. Mrs. Jellsett knew of the
trouble between him and Mrs. Moore,
and offered to get some of the
little flower girls to dress up as
boys and play with little Lotta Moore,
and find out what was between Mrs.
Moore and Clough. He never hinted to
Mrs. Jellsett that he would sue Clough,
never offered her a cent, and never asked
her to get Clough into a compromising
position. Moore swore thut he met W.
N. Webster, the St. Paul man, in
Laing's office with Gowdy and Clark,
and that Webster identified the picture
of Mrs. Moore as that of a woman who
had visited Webster's hotel with
Senator Clough. He never offered
Webster one cent, or told any one else
to pay him or offer to pay him. and that
closed Moore's testimony,
lie was quite irritable on the stand,
and wanted to do all the talking and in
his own way. He was followed by W.
N. Webster, of St. Paul, who contra
dicted some of Moore's testimony. Web
ster's answers were given clearly and
firmly, and the reporters thereafter had
an easier time.
He knew Clough by sight. He never
met him in St. Paul nor at his hotel that
he knew of. He was at Laing's office ;
last December when Gowdy, Clark and
Moore were present. He was taken
up there by Gowdy. "1 thought
'you were using your best endeavors
to get testimony against Clough" he
said in reply to a question from Laing.
He was shown a photograph of Mrs.
Moore, but did not state that he recog
nized it as the picture of a woman
who had been at his house with Clough.
As to the money offers made him he
said: "Gowdy told me there is $5,000 in
this If you can help us out. This
man Clough will never let this
come to trial. There is at least
$50,000 in it, and if we are successful I
will see that you get your share— at
least $5,000." Gowdy and Clark
afterward took him to within
one block of 1311 Clinton avenue,
where Mrs. Moore stopped. A lady
whom he yesterday recognized as Mrs.
Moore, came to the door. As a pretext
he inquired for Dr. Moore, and then
went back and reported to Gowdy and
Clark that he had not seen Mrs. Moore
but her daughter. He had never
seen Mrs. Moore before that day. That
closed Webster's testimony, and a wit
ness who had been strongly relied upon
by Moore proved more valuable to the
other side. Court was then adjaurue
until Monday.
Ex-Gov. St. John, of Kansas, Talks
on Prohibition.
Ex-Gov. John P. St. John's lecture on
prohibition draw a big crowd to Armory
hall last night. In a few well-chosen
remarks Bishop Fitzgerald introduced
the speaker of the evening. In the
course of his remarks the lecturer said:
"1 have hearty sympathy with
a people who are oppressed by
ignorance and prejudice. It was
ignorance and prejudice that burned
the martyrs at the stake, that crucified
Christ, that opposed the abolition of
slavery, that opposes prohibition now.
Less than thirty years ago it was lawful
in this great country to take .the wife
from her husband and sell her to go to
the cotton fields of Mississippi and to
sell the husband to go to the rice swamps
of Georgia. It was the custom: it
was the law. The newspapers had
taught the people that it was right,
both political parties sanctioned it, even
the churches were either silent upon the
question or boldly proclaimed that slav
ery was right. The abolitionists were
denounced and persecuted. They were
even hung and burned in c gy. Ig
norance and prejudice had taught the
people that it was right to sell God's
creatures upon the auction block
as chattels. For this reason I say
that the hardest thing to overcome
is the ignorance and prejudice of the i
people. But slavery was not Jnear so
great an evil as the liquor traffic. That
furnished him a home and the necessa
ries of life. To-day the government is
deriving a revenue from that which de
stroys men mentally, morally, physic
ally, financially— yes. even their very
souls. We have to meet to-day the ig
norance and prejudice that made
slavery possible thirty years ago
in . our fight for" prohibition
The press is against us. If you are
good Democrats you read the St. Paul
Globe and the Chicago Herald. These
papers teach you that prohibition takes
away a man's liberty. If yon are a Re
publican you perhaps read the Minne
apolis Tribune or the Pioneer— what is
that? These papers, if you read them,
will tell you that the Prohibition
party is made up of cranks
composed of Sunday school teachers
and old maids, and that the Republican
party is the only one to which you can
safely depend upon for anything. These
are some of the prejudices we will have
to overcome. It was said that slavery
would be compromised in some way,
but the Lord would not allow it to be
settled by any compromise, but
insisted on its abolition. Here in
Minnesota you try to compro
mise the liquor traffic with high license,
and 1 want to go upon record as brand
ing it as a positive sin, and every man
who votes for it is a sinner. High li
cense is nothing more nor less than a
trap set by the saloon men to catch in
nocent and half-informed temperance
men. The saloonkeeper is just as good
and pure and noble as the sa
loon he keeps, and the saloon
is as pure as the political party who
passed the law licensing it, and the law
is not any better than the man who
voted for it. The constitution of the
United States has for a fundimeutal
principle the welfare of the people. If
we destioy that we are a rebel. This
the liquor traffic does, and therefore it
is a rebel against the government and
should be suppressed. This traffic an
nually demands the death of 75,000 peo
ple in this country. It cannot live ex
cept off the bone and muscle of the peo
The speaker loundly roasted Presi
dent Harrison for allowing wine on the
table in the White house, and roundly
scored Vice President Morton for mak
ing the saloon so eminently respectable
by going into the business himself. He
dec'ared that prohibition was a success
in Indian territory, in Kansas, lowa,
and in the two Dakotas. There was now
a strip of country 1,300 miles long and
400 wide in which the sale of liquor was
prohibited by law. He quoted from the
report of the collector of internal reve
nue to show that in the district of Kan
sas, which includes the Indian territory,
only 1.600 government licenses had
been issued for the sale of liquor, which
is allowed by law for medical and
mechanical purpose, while in the Min
nesota district, which has a population
ot nearly 1,000,000 less than Kansas,
the high license law was responsible
for, 3,0:22. He switched off onto the
tariff question . and denounced the
present system wrong iv prin
ciple. He declared that the present
surplus of $100,0000,000 should. be out
among the people. At present the sys
tem levies a tax upon what we consume,*
and not upon what we possess. Under
the system now in vogue the poor man
who works for $1 a day must. contribute i
as much to. the government . as 1
the millionaire. In a-'- burst
of oratory he exclaimed: "It
is a God-given r right for every
citizen, be he rich or poor, to go "Into"
tin; markets of the world, and to buy
where their money will get the most.
I am in favor of honest protection.
Not monopoly. I am in favor of the
government protecting every industry!
that needs protection, not by taxing the
poor consumer, but by taxation levied
upon property, so that the million
aire will have to bear the burden
and not the poor hod carrier who works
for a dollar a day. I am in favor of
protecting the people from the liquor
tiaffic, and this can only be done
through prohibition." During his
speech Mr. St. John quoted freely from
James G. Blame's "Twenty Years in
Congress," and drew parallels with sev
eral Biblical stories.
Judge Emery Disposes of It Fi
nally. 'M-: '
The case of George W. Sawyer, who
was convicted before Judge Emery in
the municipal court in November last of
allowing prostitutes to frequent the
wine rooms over his saloon at 48 South .
Third street, was finally disposed of
yesterday. Upon the statement - of
Sawyer's attorney that a revoca
tion of the license at that time
would leave Sawyer with the lease
of the building, a set of costly bar
fixtures and a large stock of liquors on
hand on Nov. 2:.', 1889, Judge Emery sus
pended the sentence, imposed a fine of
$100 and revoking the license until Jan.
10, 1800. and Sawyer gave bonds in the
sum of $1,500 to appear on that day and
to pay his fine and to hand over his
license. Yesterday an attorney ap
peared in the municipal court, and on
behalf of Sawyer requested Judge
Emery to fix an appeal bond. This the
court refused to do, and Assistant City
Attorney Hall moved for judgment.
Judge Emery said the license would ex
pire at midnight, and as Sawyer had
not put in an appearance up to 6 o'clock
a committment was issued and placed
in the hands of a court officer, with or
ders to serve it at once. ' •"/•>': ,
Every-Day Scenes Before Judge

The examination of Fritz Bosse, who
shot William Bork on New Year's even

was continued until Friday next on ac
count of the still dangerous condition
of the wounded man. City Physician
Chase told the court that Bork had
suffered a relapse and was likely to die.
Yesterday being the last day of the
month on which the soiled doves who
make their nest in the classic precincts
of First avenue South could walk into
the municipal court and pay their usual
penalties for violating both the state
law and the city ordinances, with the
understanding that they would not be
troubled by the police for the next
thirty days unless they committed some
overact, the following women handed
Clerk Smith their regular monthly
stipend : Bertie Berts, $75; Hattie Cole,
$00; Annie Wright, $05; Josie Em
erson, $00, and Gracie Holmes, $60.
Jacob Domm was convicted of keeping
a vicious dog. and as he was willing the
dog should be killed, Judge Mahoney
suspended a fine and sentenced the dog
to death. Dan Ryan, Gus Miller, Fred
Wendburg, John Brown, William Jones
and C. li. Wilson were charged by
Capt. Dan Day with vagrancy. The
men had regularly applied for lodging
at the central station, and the officer in
charge was tired of having them around.
Miller and Brown were sent to the
