"A Texas Steer," with practically the
same cast as when seen here last season,
opened an engagement for the balance
of the week at the Grand last night.
Like all of Hoyt's productions, it is a
satire that is funny. It evidently
pleases the people of Minneapolis, for
it caused the "standing room only" sign
to be brought down stairs and be
displayed on the front door in the full
glare of the street lamps. The many
persons who stood up to enjoy the play
wished that they could sit down, it
would be so much easier to laugh. For
one cannot sit through a performance of
"A Texas Steer" without laughing it he
has any appreciation of keen satire, pun
gent wit and genuine humor. There is
plenty of satire, for Hoyt never wrote
anything that was not satirical, but the
satire is the medium for displaying the
humorous side of the satirized. The
play seems to be in lor big business at
the' Grand. After the second act Charles
11. Hoyt was called before the curtain
long enough for him to apologize for the
absence of his private secretary and his
I consequent inability to make a speech.
The Bijou drew a large audience last
evening to witness the performance of
"A Hole in the Ground." The appear
ance of several new persons in the cast
seemed to brighten the performance
wonderfully. A matinee and evening
performance tomorrow, will conclude
the engagement. Seats are selling rap
idly for the "Money Mad" engagement
the" coming week. j
At the box office of the Grand opera
house this morning the sale of seats
will commence for the engagement of
Fanny Rice, who will be seen at that
place of amusement on Monday. Tues

HE HYPNOTIZED HER.
Mr*. Watkins Claims That Detre
ville Forced Her to Run Away,
Mrs. Watkins, who created a sensa
tion by eloping with Detreville last
month, has written a letter to friends in
the city explaining how she came to
take such a step. She says that Detre
vi'le forced her to listen to his
declarations of love, and that grad
ually he began to exercise a
strange and awful influence over her.
He also forced her to elope with him
at the point of the revolver, and threat
ened to kill, not only herself, but her
children, if she refused to fly with him.
While Jiving with him she was in con
stant dread of her life, and was so
closely watched that she could not es
cape. Her brother finally found her in
California, and rescued her.
Her friends here think Mrs. Watkins
was hypnotized by Detreville, else she
never would bave left her husband.
The latter has not decided what he will
do. though he says he will protect his
erring wife from Detreville.
CHANGED THEIR NAMES.
The West Hotel Robbers Will Be
The two men who attempted to rob
Clerk Wills, of the West hotel, Wednes
day afternoon, were brought before
Judge Elliott yesterday and had their
cases set for 2 o'clock tomorrow.
They now give their nainas as A. J.
Ryan and James Walker. Walker, the
younger of the two.who is known to the
police here as Kid Harris, was arrested
dining the last meeting of the Minne
haha Driving association with a gang of
dips from Chicago. Kyan, theman who*
took the satchel from Mr. Wills, i.- not
yet fully identified, but his appearance
indicates that he has a criminal record,
and It is now pretty well established
that the two were the ones who stole
the pants ot a guest at the West hotel a
few weeks ago.
The local W. C. T. U. Is making arrange

Other Aldermen Called in to Re-
eom:ile Parry and Woodward.
It was expected that there would be a
caucus of the Republican aldermen at
the council chamber last evening, but so
far as could be learned, none was held.
The caucus was to settle some little dif
ferences between Aids. Tarry and Wood
ward, the representatives of the Seventh
ward. Tarry and Woodward have been
"scrapping" for some time. One of the
points of difference between thtm is in
relation to a street commissioner. Wood
ward, it is said, wants to run the alder
manic business in the Seventh. Parry
has lived there a good deal longer
than Woodward has. lie repre
sented the Seventh be F ore ever
the legislature thought of putting
Woodward into that ward, and he
thinks that he should have something
to say about the affairs of the ward.
There are other differences between the
aldermen, but this matter of a street
commissionership is the immediate
cause of rupture. Lute last night it was
learned that the trouble had been set
tled. William Man*, Woodwards man,
will be street commissioner. Parry's
man was Jones, his nephew.
Half a Dozen Caught at Donald-
son's Alone Yesterday.
The shoplifter flourishes in the land
like a mubhroom in a cow pasture. The
attention of the whole detective force
of Minneapolis is concentrated upon
Nicollet avenue and its stores these
days. The detectives will be Kept busy
watching the big stores from now until
after Christmas. The larger places are
filled with the thieves every day. Don
aldson's store seems to be the' favorite
murk for the tribe. No less than a half
dozen petty thieve? were arrested there
yesterday. Donaldson & Co. are on the
trail of the shoplifters. They anuotue
that they will prosecute to !he limit of
the law every thief found in (heir store.
They have not adopted this plan until
recently. They have always been ac
customed to ailow thieves caueht in the
act to go tree if they would pay
for the goods taken. But that
does not seem to frighten
the thieves enough. Hereafter they will
prosecute any one found steal ii _
in their store. One (if the women ar
rested there yesterday was an old, gray
haired lady, sixty-five years old. The
employes of the store had been watch
ing her for a week or m«. They failed
to catch her until yesterday. Another
was i woman from Webster. S. 1 1
was plying her vocation with a baby in
her arms and two children clinging to
her skirts. The proprietors had pity on
her because of her children, and extend
ed to her an offerof immunity from pun
ishment if she would pay for the goods
she had taken. She attempted to brazen
ttie matter until the police arrived with
the patrol wagon. Then she broke
down and wanted to be released. She
ami the children were taken to the
police station under arrest. The charge
against her was afterward withdrawn.
She is the wife ot a prominent man in
Webster. She says that she does not
know what impulse led her to steal. It
seemed to be her iirst offense. lh<
cases of the others will come up iv the
municipal court this morning.
DROWNED WHILE SKATING.
Miss Hattie Anderson Goes Down
Near Plymouth Bridge.
Hattie Anderson, who is employed in
the office of Dr. Jones, in the Syndicate
block, was drowned in the river about
G o'clock last evening:. She was skat
ins in the neighborhood ot the Plym
outh avenue bridge, and, not being ac
quainted with the river, went
iuto the open place near Bas-
Bett's creek. Several others, who saw
her fall into the water, tried to save her,
but were unable to do so. Her body has
not yet been recovered. J. Hummel, an
employe of Hall & Ducey.who was akat
ing near the same place." broke through
the Ice three times, but was finally
taken out safely. Mi-s Anderson

A. L. Coneer, of Ohio, and D. Adler,
of Chicago, left Minneapolis last night.
With their departure the city was re
lieved of the burden of greatness that it
has been compelled to bear since the
coming of the first man representing
the national Republican committee. All
day yesterday Mr. Adler was in consul
tation with Architect Hayes relative to
the changes necessary to be made in
the exposition building to put It into
shape for a national convention. Mr.
Adler said before he left that lie had
not made up his mind as to what would
have to be done. As he stated the day
before, he is of the opinion that the del
egates must be seated on the first floor.
Beyond that he has nothing to say of
the changes. He has familiarized him
self with the plans, and will report to
the national committee in a few weeks.
Contractor Leighton was in on the con
sultation too. He gives it as his opin
ion that the changes in the building
will cost at least $23,000.
Col. A. L. Conger talked a little poli
tics before he left town. He also ex-
I plained just '.yhat the national commit
j tee meant by its circular regarding the
appointment of the new congressional
committees in the reapportioned states.
"The intention of the national com
j mittee was to allow each district to be
its own 'boss,' so to speak. Since 'HO,
the policy ot the party has been shaping
itself in the direction of direct repre
! sentation. We do not want to have a
convention meet in a certain city in it
state, choose delegates from each con
: gressional district, and then, when it is
found that certain sections had no voice
I in the deliberations, nave it said "that
there was no committee in that district,
so the state convention had to act for
! it.' We want the people in every dis
j trict to name their own men. In case they
I fail to do so for reasons best known to
j themselves, then let the state central
committee do it. Now let us bring this
! thing nearer home, and take this county
for example. Assuming that there are
factions, and there will be factions as
surely as there are Democratic, Repub
lican, Prohibition and Greenback par
ties. Now, say one faction is favorable
I to Elaine, and the other to Harrison;
j they are both equally strong, and both.
of course, want control of the delegation
which elects delegates to the national
convention. Neither will yield, so it
remains for the state central committee
to determine which side is entitled to
Col. Conger says that this matter was
j given careful consideration, and that it
was adopted because the committee was
j anxious to harmonize all differences in
the party. He was not ashamed to ad
; rait that differences do exist. The

! been elected had there been no differ

A Cunning Thief Running Loose
Special to the Qlobe.
Drum. Minn.. Dec. IT.— lt has just
leaked out that one Johnson, alias Fred
Olson, came to Duluth last July, aud
bought 1342 worth of books oi W. A.
Edwards, an installment dealer. The
latter shipped them to Cum berland,
Wia., subject to his own order, sending
a draft for collection, with tiie bill of
lading attached, to the bank at that
place. Johnson, meanwhile, in
order to get the signature of
the agent at this city, as well
as the receipt shipped a box of dirt to
the .-amu place. Then he jumped on
the train and went to Cumberland. Ar
riving there, he went to the bank, got a
description of the bill of lading and

Trial of Young Mazue.
Buffalo, Minn., Dec. 17.— 1n the
Mazue trial today witnesses testified to
finding the body of Annie Blunder
eighteen or twenty rods from the rail
road track and identified the remnants
of her clothing by which she was found.
Dr. Brifham. of Montro=e, who con
ducted the autopsy, testified as to the
appearance of the remains and that she
had been outraged and had been
strangled. Mazue, while he sits still
and appears unconcerned, evidently
j keeps close watch of the proceedings.
His lingers are in restless motion ami
his eyes are constantly turning from
one to another and rapidly winking.
The case will not be given to the jury

Eat- Claire, Wis.. Dec. 17.— A propo
sition for a compromise has been pend

he died, gave his estate, valued at
11,000.000, to build a hospital. Mrs.
Qvale is about to sue to recover the
whole estate for herself and for the son
born four months after Qvale died, and
the proposition is that Mrs. Qvale and
the boy be given the major part of the
estate. If carried out it is said it effect
ually disposes of the hospital idea.
