Epic Olson Receives a Tongue
Lashing* From John Day
The Little Scandinavian Has
Been Criticising the In
They Resent His Charges in
Language Anything but
Attorney Erwin Is to Receive
a Few Simoleons From
It was hail Columbia at yesterday
morning's session of the wheat investi
gation. Eric Olson, who had just planted
himself in a convenient spot for taking
the voluminous notes he uses in writing
articles for the State, suddenly took
his eyes off the paper and the motion of
his pencil stopped. He was being
talked about, and John Day Smith was
the talker. The introduction of the af
fair was a resolution offered by Senator
Sevatson. It reads thus:
Kesolved. That this committee condemn
in the strongest terms the unfair and parti
sun course of 'The State," in Us issue of
June 18, as shown in an editorial of said
paper, attempting to mislead the public and
brin? into discredit the office of the attorney
general and certain members of this commit
tee, and for publishing the dirty, scurrilous
articles written by one Eric Olson.
Mr. Moore wanted t« amend by con
demning all the newspapers for their
attitude toward the committee during
the investigation. Then it was that
Join: Day Smith, the inceptor of noc
turnal hanging bees, arose in his wrath
and smote Mr. Olson hip and thigh,
lie had noticed the unfair course of that
paper, the State. It had been the ex
ponent of scurrilous views of a scurri
lous writer, whose character could not
be sullied by contact with the lowest
vagabond who crawled the gutter of the
earth. The paper in which these arti
cles appeared assumed to represent the
grain growers' association, but Mr.
Smith knew full well that neither Gen.
Barrett nor Mr. Hall would be a party
to such attacks as those made in the
columns of the State. What this man
Eric Olson said amounted to little. He
had been hanging about ever since the
committee organized, trying to get em
ployed. Both he and Muller, v»ho had
been in the employ of the State, were
beneath the committee's contempt.
While he was being thus scored Mr.
Olson took notes intently. Mr. Smith
wanted him to
Get Kvory Word
down, he said, and when he had com
pleted his remarks Mr. Olson could not
do better than take himself and his
notes back to the wilderness. Mr.
Sevatson spoke in favor of the resolu
tion. Assistant Atorney General Childs
asked for the exclusion from the resolu
tion of the attorney general's office, as
he cared nothing for Olson's attacks.
The original resolution was carried by
a vote of 3to 2. Messrs. Smith, Zelch
ana Sevatson voted for it, and Messrs.
Moore and Barrett against it.
The editorial in the State which gave
rise to the scene in the committee room
yesterday attacked the assistant attor
ney general and Messrs. Smith, Zelch
and French for permitting the witness
Scott to testify before the committee,
and accused all the members of being
mixed up in a huge whitewashing job.
In regard to allowing a bill to Attor
ney W. W. Erwin for his services, Mr.
Barrett moved that he be allowed $15
per day,. Mr. Moore seconded the mo
tion. Mr. Sevatson thought that it
would be best to ascertain what Mr. Er
win charged, as it might be less. Mr.
.Smith said be was opposed to paying
Erwin anything; but, it they did pay
him anything, it should be a lump sum.
Mr. Zelch was opposed to paying Er
win anything, as he was not the attor
ney of the committee.- Finally, Mr.
Sevatson moved to allow Mr. Erwiu
?400, and the motion was adopted by a
vote of 5 to 2, Messrs. Moore, Geissel,
Caswell, French and Sevatson voting in
favor of the motion, Messrs. Zelch and
Barrett voting against it, Mr. Smith re
fraining from voting.
At the afternoon sessionlMr. Erwin
Opened the Ball
by asking that the books containing the
screening accounts kept by the ele
vator companies be produced. Mr. Sev
erance objected to this, saying that the
matter could be fully explained by the
defense through its witnesses. ..
The committee turned to the state
ment submitted by the experts. The
figures show that 279,095 bushels have
been shipped out without inspection,
but the claim of the defense is that
200,000 bushels of that amount consists
of the burnt wheat shipped out
with the permission of the grain com
mission, and thai the remaining 19,095
bushels can be accounted for in a satis
factory manner. The elevator men are
not at all disconcerted by the figures,
claiming that all discrepancies can be
Mr. Erwin urged that the elevator
men be asked to produce their private
books for examination, A shipment of
43,000 bushels of screenings appeared
upon the railroad books, and the at
torney wanted to make sure that tnis
was not good wheat.
Mr. Severance asked that the defense
be allowed to proceed with its case at
once. A priina facie case had been
made out against them, and they
wished to be heard.
Assistant Attorney General Childs
said if it was necessary to call for the
books he would do so.
The committee decided 'to hear the
case of the defense first, and if it was
found necessary to have the books pro
duced to call for them at that time.
Mr. Severance wished to cross-exam
ine Expert Willis, so the latter took the
stand. The witness said that in check
ins the books he had not searched for
an explanation for any apparent 'dis
crepancy, but merely copied the books
and presented what was shown on

THE FELINE MOTOR.
The Marvelous Invention of a
Western Genius. -
Stoughton, Wis., Special. .
Prof. Richard de Long, the Inventor
of the new feline motor, is a tall, pale
faced man, with a three-story, bay win
dow forehead overhanging a pair of
deep-set, sky-blue eyes, set on each side
of a large, thin looked nose. He is not
a beauty; but he is a genius.
His feline motor, which at present is
creating such a sensation in scientific
circles in Stoughton, is a marveious
machine, unique in appearance and
wonderful in operation. It may be de
scribed as a curious combination of large
and small fly wheels, great balance
wheels, bright steel rods, and a almost
innumerable number of coils of copper
wire, all joined to a brightly-polished
cylinder of brass, one end of which pro
jects into a wire cage filled with ordinary
cats. Its operation is very simple, but
surprising in its results. A slight pull
on a small nickel-plated lever starts the
machine. Then liKe lightning from out
the end of cylinder projecting into the
cage shoots a long steel arm and hand,
grabbing one of the cats by the nape of
the neck and yanking it into the cylin
der, where it disappears with a yowl
of more than feline terror. In a moment
the fly-wheels and all of the complicated
machinery begins to move, at first slowly
but soon with starting rapidity. At the
proper moment, which is indicated by
a small clock-like attachment, the
operator pulls another lever, when from
out of the other end of the cylinder,
witti hair and tail erect, scintillating
eyes, and a Caterwaul dislocating to
one's spinal column, the cat is projected
into a tub of cold water prepared for
This operation, surprising as it may
seen, extracts from the cat electricity
equivalent to the power represented by
ten horses. working for one hour, and
this power can be stored in the cylinder
until needed. As a cat can be run
through the motor every three minutes,
and all the accumulating electricity be
stored, the power of the machine is
practically limitless. The same cat can
be used once every ten hours without; in
the least impairing its health and gen
The professor is jubilant over the
success of his invention. He is satisfied
that he has overcome every difficulty,
and intends soon to put the machines
upon the market. In speaking of the
origin of the invention and the probable
result of its use, he says:
"I have long believe that the cat is
nature's Leyden jar, charged with an
enormous amount of electricity, but in
such a manner as requires a peculiar
process to extract it. This process it
has been my good fortune to discover.
The discovery will be of incalculable
benefit to mankind. It will revolution
ize the mechanical world and be felt in
every department of life. By its means
every family, no matter how poor, can
have its home brilliantly lighted with
electricity at a less cost than to have it
poorly lighted with kerosene. By sim
ply running the now practically useless
house cat through the machine twice
each day a sufficient amount of elec
tricity can be engendered to illuminate
brilliantly any medium-sized house.
Think how advantageous it would be to
a large city. Take New York, for ex
ample. Carefully complied statistics
show that there are at present within
the city limits about 9.5108,347 cats.
This represents very nearly a 20,000,000
continuous horse power, or enough to
light the entire city and furnish all the
motive power to do its work. The feline
motor will do away with steam. Ten
years from now, 1 venture to say. there
will not be a steam engine in active
operation in the United States."
KILrLED FOR SILENCE.
A Girl Witness Brutally Murdered
Pierce City, Mo., June 24.— A
daughter of Terry Campbell, aged four
teen years, who lives a mile north of
Ritchey, was seen last Saturday night
leaving the town, homeward bound.
Two young men named Hardy and
Armstrong saw the girl and a man
about a mile from town. This
was the last time the girl
was seen alive. Searching part
ies were scouring the neighborhood from
Saturday evening until Sunday evening,
when her mutilated body was found a
few feet from the road by the same
young men and near the place they had
seen her the day before the murder.
Her head was crushed and her throat
cut from ear to ear. There were evi
dences of a hard struggle from the road
to the scene of the murder, Rumor says
the girl was an important witness in a
murder case now pending in Newton
county, and that interested parties are
suspected of knowing about the murder.

the day before yesterday. James W.

shot him. . M. Y. Sifert ran up at this
juncture and shot Plunkett again.
Either shot would have proven fatal.
Mitchell and Plunkett died to-day. On
the same day J. Prentiss, near the same

Legal Bout Over the Title
The Value of Which Is Modest

Religious Enthusiasm at
Artistic Display of Work by
the Pupils of St Joseph's
The Northern Pacific Railway com"
pany began an action of large propor
tions yesterday in the United States
circuit court against the St. Paul, Min
neapolis & Manitoba company: Edward
Sawyer, of St. Paul, as receiver of the
lands granted to the Sc. Paul & Pacific
Railway company; John S. Kennedy
and James A. Roosevelt, of New York;
R. B. Angus, of Canada. This suit fol
lows on the heels of a decision by the
United States supreme court in favor of
the same plaintiff against the St. Paul
& Pacific Railroad company and others,
the mandate of which was filed yester
day in the United States circuit court
here. This action involves other la^ids
valued at many millions of dollars lying
within the conflicting limits of the two
grants by acts of congress to the two
roads. The plaintiff claims a grant of
alternate sections or land for twenty
miles on each side of its road, under au
thority of an act of congress of July,
1S()4, which also authorized the building
of its line of road from Lake Superior
in Minnesota or Wisconsin to Pueet
Sound, and which were given it in lieu
of certain other mineral lands. The
lands directly involved in this action |
are limited, however, to those in the 1
northern part of Minnesota. One
of the questions involved in this suit is j
the right to mineral lands which were
not known to contain minerals at the
time of the grant, but have subsequently
developed to contain minerals. This
point has been raised in the mining re
gions of Montana and Idaho, where it
was decided by the lower courts that a
grant of lands does not exclude lands
subsequently discovered to contain
minerals, and this important question,
as well as the fact that it was known
that the lands in question contained
minerals at the time of the grant, are
involved in this action. The complaint
also asks that the patents issued
by the United States and Minnesota
to the St. Paul & Pacific, or to the
Manitoba, may be adjudged and de
creed to be null and void as against
its title, and that the last-named de
fendent may be adjudged and decreed
to hold whatsoever title it has thereto
as trustee in trust for the plaintiff.
Also that Sawyer be compelled to make
a full report iv regard to the lands in
dispute, and that he refrain from de
livering any deed, etc., in reference to
the land until further order of the court.
It further asked that the plaintiff be
adjudged to be the owner of the lands
in dispute, and the money arising from
the sale of any 1 part of them by Sawyer.
The petition concludes with an appli
cation for an injunction, and Judge
Nelson yesterday granted a temporary
injunction to the following effect:
"It appears from the petition that. Ed
ward Sawyer is receivei of the St. Paul ,
& Pacific" Railroad company, and is i
about to pay wrongfully to the St. Paul, I
Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway com
pany all moneys arising from sales of
lands or contracts to sell all bonds and
other evidences of debt arising from
sales of lands by him as receiyerof the
St. Paul & Pacific road, and that the St.
Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba company
will dispose of these proceeds to John
S. Kennedy and James A. Roosevelt, of
New York; R. B. Angus, of Canada,
and the Central Trust company, of
New York, so that they will
go beyond the reach of. this
court. It is ordered that Edward Saw
yer be restrained from making any
transfer thereof until the further order
of tue court. All of the defendants are
also ordeied to appear before the circuit
court here on June 27, at 10 a. m., and
show cause why they should not be
permanently enjoined from doing any
of the acts sought to be restrained."
CAMPERS AHE DRENCHED.
Red Rock Fervor Dampened by
Notwithstanding the bad weather
there was quite a crowd of worshipers
at Red Rock yesterday, and a great deal
of enthusiasm was shown that was not
at all affected by the rain. Of all places
in the world a camp meeting seems to
be a strange place to take a dog to, and
yet many canines, licensed and un
licensed,"are seen wandering aimlessly
about the grounds and now and theii
lifting their voices skyward. It is safe
to say that they form no necessary part
of the exercises and are rather looked
down upon by the community. Yet
they are there, and there seems to be no
effort made to put them anywhere else.
Certainly it is hardly the proper thing
to have half a dozen pups in the audi
torium who punctuate the sermons by
their ungodly howls whenever the
speaker has reached the climax. It may
show devotion on the part of the dogs",
but it sadly interferes with the preacher.
It might be for the good of the campers
if a few dog catchers were sent to the
grounds from St. Paul.
Dr. McClary, of Minneapolis, deliv
ered one of the most interesting sermons
ever heard at Red Rock yesterday
morning. The truth and vigor of his
remarks were felt by all, and he left an
impression that was decidedly for good.
In the afternoon Mr 3. Smith led the
prayer meeting, and in the avening Dr.
Stafford preached to the multitude.
The annual meeting of the Red Rock
association will take place this after
noon. On Friday aftepnoon Mrs. Smith
will eive an account of her services in
Africa under the auspices of the W. F.
