"THE TUG OF WAR"
Is the Title of the ART SUPPLEMENT That Goes With Next SUNDAY GLOBE. VOL XV. 1 BLOTTING-PAD FAKE. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL'S EXHI BITION OF GALL. Its menage STORY WAS false Its Yarn About the Discovery Through the Use of a Riot ting Pad Proves to Have Been Spun From a Chain of Clues "Which Existed Only in the Writer's Brain. Special to the Globe. Chicago, 111., Nov. There prob ibly never was a more bold, bare-faced newspaper lie perpetrated than the Dlotting-fad fake of the Minneapolis Journal bolstering up its pretended dis covery of Menage, when in reality it had nothing whatever to do with the discovery. Last evening's Journal pub lished the ridiculous story that it dele gated one of its force to play the part of a sneak and shadow the office of J. B. Croaker, in the chamber of commerce building, this city, and as the result the sneak, who advertises himself as named Chase.managed to steal a blotting pad on which Menage's address was blotted from a letter addressed by Croaker. Mr. Croaker will be remembered as one of the old residents of Minnesota, having served several years in the legislature as senator when residing at Owatonna, and subsequently residing in Minneap olis, where he was engaged in lumber ing. Some years ago he came to Chi cago to engage in the real estate busi ness, and has represented Menage in Ills big deals her«. A Globe represent ative called on Mr. Croaker today and told him of the blotting-pad fake of the Journal, showing him the paper. Mr. Croaker, in reply, said: "I have just wired the Minneapolis Tribune in reply to a telegram from that paper that the Journal story, so far as I am concerned, is absolutely false. No man by the name of Chase has called to see me, and it would have been impossible for him to have ob tained Menage's address in my office, as 1 could not give the information. I suppose they might obtain Menage's address from his attorneys In Minneap olis, and an attempt is being made to make me a scapegoat. It is no secret that i was in charge of Menage's real estate matters here, and have been, and Still am, ready to give any information 1 can concerning the property. People come in and talk with me on that busi ness, but there has been no such person as the Journal describes here, and 1 le iterate that the story is absolutely false." The Post this evening publishes an Interview with Croaker, in which this passage occurs: "Do you know Mr. Menage?" Mr. Croaker was asked. "Yes, 1 know him," was the reply. "Have you had any recent corre spondence with him?" "1 have not." "Did you know that he was in Guate mala?" "I did not. I knew nothing as to his whereabouts." The people of Minnesota will readily accept Mr. Croaker's statement in pref erence to that of a confessed sneak. The Journal stands convicted of false hood in its attempt to steal the credit from the Globe detective burean of having advanced the ends of justice. "False in one, false iv all" applies to the Journal, as the falsehood thus proven shows that its entire story, from beginning to end. is an invention, and it will probably prove that County At torney Nye never heard the name of the Journal mentioned in the matter prior to its absurd and bogus blotting-pad fake. . -««»» FOLLOWING RKV. BR.IGGS. Rumpus Over Rev. H. N. Pr ingle at Anoka, Anoka, Minn,, Nov. 15.— 1t was ex pected that Rev. H. N. Pringle would be ordaiued by the Congregationalist council at the church last night. But he wasn't. His views did not meet the orthodox requirements of the council of ministers who sat on his case. They re ported as follows: "In view of a division of the council in the matter of the expediency of or daining Rev. H. N. Pringle, the council, on account of the unsatisfactoriness of his theological views, although greatly admiring his earnest Christian character and spirit, advise Rev. Pringle and the church to postpone the services of the ordination." Their action was quite a blow to the candidate, who has worked hard to fit Himself for the pulpit. Another council will be called. In conversation with some of the trustee's tin s morning all were found to be proud of the standing of their pastor, and said that he would be retained here at any rate. The council consisted of the follow ing ministers: Rev. Mr. Wells and Rev. J. H. Mor ley, Minneapolis; Rev. Mr. Heath, St Paul; Rev. Mr. Hulbert, Princeton; Rev. Mr. Smith, Monticello, and one other. Mr. Prindle differed from the mem bers of the council in a greater or less degree. A reporter visited the candi date at his rooms this morning, and is able to give the readers the differences, which briefly are: First— The. divinity of Christ. He was asked if Christ was God and God was Christ in the same sense. He answered "no," and stated that in his mind Christ was certainly divine; but all that was divine was not in Christ, and cited authorities and the Bible to substantiate his idea. •Second— inspiration of the Bible, Jlr. Pringle thought that the Bible was inspired through feeling, and, because Writes through feeling', contained er rors. Dr. Briggs was quoted and some others. Third— ln Atonement— The commit tee thought atonement, in same sense of an offering of an ox iv Jewish times, actually took away sin. This met with some difference of opinion, Mr. P. thinking that the atonement of Christ was both in His life and death, and that an atonement pleased God, but did not take away sin. Mayor's Son Married. Special to the Globe. Lake City, Minn., Nov. 15.— Henry G. Young, son of Mayor H. A. Young, was united in marriage here today to Miss Edna McCall, daughter - of ' Alder man E. F.

Aheru, the Catholic priest at Flandreau, has been suspended from the exercise of his priestly functions. The charge against Ahem is said to be that he has made public accusations against the bishop. The charges laid against Bishop Marty have been referred by Mgr. Salolli to Archbishop Ireland. Aheru, it is said, will appeal to the highest Catholic authority lor reinstall m en t. Father Ahem was seen this afternoon just as he was taking the train to Flan dreau. He admitted that he had been suspended, but would not talk further about the case. It is an open secret that Ahem was one of the priests who lodged the charges against Bishop Marty before Mgr. Satolli.

THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 16, 1893. QUEEN LILONTHE THRONE.' STATE OFFICIALS THINK SHE HAS AGREED TO G ROVER'S TERMS. INSTRUCTIONS TO MB. WILLIS. Full Amnesty to the Revolution ists and Hearty Co-operation of the Dole Administration- After Righting the Wrong Done Our Government Will Not Interfere Hereafter. Washington, Nov. 15.— The chief interest in the Hawaiian situation now surrounds the instructions g-iven to Minister Willis and the contents of the cipher message which was received after the arrival of the China. While the same answer regarding instruction to foreign ministers is made at the de partment. "That such instructions are never made public," yec it seems that *frotn time to time something does come out. A number of people are now quite familiar with some important features of the instructions. There is no doubt of Minister Willis being in structed to make the restoration of Lil uokalani conditional upon full am nesty being granted to the men who en gaged in the revolution and overthrew the queen. Minister Willis, it is understood, was instructed to insist upon this, because the president felt that the revolution would not have oc curred had it not been for the assistance and co-operation of this government, through the late Minister Stevens. Mr. Willis was instructed to say to these members of the provisional government that the president felt that he ought to protect them to this extent, because he believed that had it not been for the au thority of the United States used by Minister Stevens, they would never have been led into the revolution. The instructions, it is thought, requested the minister to first call upon the queen and tell her the president believed a gieat wrong had been done her, and after insisting upon amnesty declare the intention of placing her iv control of the government. She was also to be informed that it was the desire of the president that she should placate those who had been instrumental in. IIEH OVEBTIIISOW and sustain herself in authority with out the assistance of the United States. From the cipher dispatch it is believed that the state department has been in formed that these conditions are satis factory to the queen, and had been ac cepted by her at the time the China sailed. To President Dole it is understood that Minister Willis was instructed to say that the president felt that in pro tecting the non-interference policy of the government, he felt it necessary to decide the matter as if a dispute had been referred to him and restore the queen, and in sustaining the queeu the president hoped to have the hearty co operation of the members of the Dole administration, which he felt was en titled to commendation for what it had done to maintain peace in the islands since it had been in existence. After having lighted what it considered a wrong done by this government, the United States would assume the same policy of non-interference in affairs of other powers. It is thought that the queen was ready to comply with the suggestion that she ask members of the provisional government to aid her because her friends no doubt believe that she could sustain herself by having the assistance of those who were prominent In the revolution. The members of the pro visional government would be wUliug, it is believed, to take such positions be cause it would give them just the power they would wish for in case they desired to take part in another revolution which is possible if there is no provision made to SUSTAIN THE QUEEN after she is restored . It is upon the yet unpublished report of Mr. Blount that the administration depends for a com plete vindication of its attitude. It is anticipated that there will be warm de bates upon the subject when it comes before congress, which will bring out all the facts. The information upon which the letter of Sec retary Gresham was based will then have been made public, and, while it is anticipated that the statements made will be disputed, it is claimed that they will be sustained by such over whelming evidence that the people who are disposed to look at the matter fairly will be compelled to acknowledge that the administration could do nothing else but restore the queen. There is no doubt but that the administration feels that it is on the defensive, and that there is a tendeucy, especially among Kepublicans and among many Demo crats, to criticise its action. The claim that time will show beyond all doubt that it took the proper course is made with much persistency in various quar ters, as if with the intention of creating the impression that there is a great deal in reserve for vindication purposes. There is uo denying the fact that there are a great many men who are partisans of the president who feel that a mis take has been made, and who cannot reconcile themselves to the restoration of the queen, and especially sustaining her by force of arms. There are enough members of the president's party who say that it is all right to restore the status before the revolution, if it was brought about by the influence and assistance of the United States govern ment or through the Influence of Min ister Stevens, but after that the Ha waiians should be allowed to settle their affairs in their own way. " In answer to the assertion made that the president and secretary of state are destroying a republic and setting up a monarchy, the statement is made that there never existed a worse despotism than that of the provisional government in Hawaii. An official of the depart ment said today' that "it was a despot ism of five persons, and the people were held under their absolute control." He also asserted that there would be a great change in the sentiment of the people when all the facts were known. Persons in the state departments con tin ueabsolutely uncommunicative as to any new phase of the Hawaiian i ques tion* : Some idea iof the accuracy of ' published assertious that " have been advanced as speculations and persisted in can, however, be had. Thus it is proved that the contention of -this government will be that the provisional government of Hawaii came to an end by its own terms, when United States Minister Willis notified President Dole that the United States rejected the proffered" annexation of the islands, ■■ on : the ground that the government was only formed to act until the islands should b§ annexed.

GIBL DISGUISED AS A BOBBER Played an Important Part by Re fnsin if to Obey Orders — The Highwaymen Arrested in Bed —One of the Robbers Recent ly Released From Joliet by Gov. Altgeld. Lixcolx, Nov. 15.— The capture of the railroad bandits was an unexpected bit of work by Chief of Police Mitchell and two of his best men. Nov. 9 a clothing store in the rjeighbor'mg town of Clinton was robbed of a large quan tity of clothing, jewelry and notions. Daughters of Shells, the oldest of the jailed trio, began displaying gloves, silk handkerchiefs and jewelry, a circum stauce which was speedily reported to the police. An investigation was started and important information came out that Shells aud the two men, Vanmeter and Howe, new arrivals here, were away from their home, Shell's piace, the night of the train hold-up. A detective began to work on the case under the direction of Chief Mitchell, aud one day sufficed to war rant the officers to take the desperate alternative of raiding Shell's house. When the door was burst in a gust of wind extinguished a low light, but a dark lantern was flashed, and Shells arrested in an attempt to train hold of a loaded revolver. The other two men were in bed with Shells, aud were commanded to lie still, which they did, under GLEAMING REVOLVERS in the hauds of men who proposed to give the criminals no chance to add more victims to their list. The three men were ordered up, searched and marched to the iail, aud a subsequent search of the premises brought forth three revolvers of 32-calibre, the same size as the one which sent a bullet into the bowels of Brakeman Trott, who re sisted the hold-up of the train. The Shells girl, so one story goes, was dis guised as a man and participated in the sensational happenings of the trsin rob bery, leading in the parley with the brakeman when he was shot. It s further charged by one of the suspects that the girl precipitated the acts which foiled the men robbing the train by not obeying orders. To support this story is the fact that when the house was first raided a wagon load of men's and boys' clothing was found which came from the Clintou store, several overcoats, vests, pants and hats were sprinkled with hayseed, proving conclusively that the persons yvho wore the clothes re cently hid in a haystaeff, which the bandits undoubtedly did, as there are Kieat meadows close to where they abandoned the train, which afforded them refuge until they ascertained the coast was clear, and then reached home between 2 and 3 o'clock next morning. In the flight from the train one revolver was lost, so Vanmeter said in a conver sation with THE SHELLB GIRL. .. The weapon is now being searched for, and if found will be a firm link to the already overwhelming evidence When Vanmeter and Howe were lodged in jail, Howe ciaimed to be from Fort Worth, Tex., but the contrary has since been established, and it is claimed he has been identified as the "stool pig eon" of burglars and highwaymen, be ing known in his profession as the "Kid." Vanmeter, when jailed, wauted to know if any shooting was lately done on a railroad here. He was nervous and irritable. He had on the slouch white hat described the night the train affair happened, and tallies exactly with the medium-sized man reported by the trainmen. Shells is a stalwart person, 6 feet 2 inches, and fills the place of the tall and powerful robber who terrorized the train passengers. Howe ia the small man of tne trio, who was the first to leave the train. Two of the prisoners have served time. Van meter was liberated from Joliet in Sep tember, after serving two years for burglary. Shells went to the same prison in 18'J1 for a term of fourteen years for incest, but was pardoned last summer by Gov. Altgeld at the request of many prominent^ citizens of Logan couuty. Shells and Vanmeter hail from Southwest Indiana, near the Wa bash river. Additional individuals are implicated, for they are in search of a fourth man, but refuse to divulge his name. The authorities have strong evidence to effect convictions on charges of train robbery, assault with iulent to commit murder, burglary and larceny. The prisoners will be held and first tried ou the first two charges. The suc cessful capture has caused showers of congratulations upon the officers, and receives the approval of the whole com munity, which is not averse to inflicting summary punishment, likely to be meted to the prisouers if the trainmen, who have been sent for, identify them beyond doubt or quibble. This evening Albert Woodward, an employe ot the coal mine where the bandits made their rendezvous was ar rested. He was accused of having talked on the subject of train robbing Monday, failed , to report Tuesday and was absent from home until this after noon. He was seen in a scratched and bruised condition in Mount Pulaski* yesterday. Ho compares favorably to the man who jumped off the train while it was running thirty-five miles an hour His arrest clears up all the donbts as to the guilt of all the suspected, and be yond this proves that he has promised a confession. Shell's daughter has given her father, Vanmeter and Howe away through reveuge for cruelty her father practiced toward her. The state's at torney is confident they have the right men aud that their conviction is prac tically assured. He tuinks that a dan gerous band of highwaymen and burg lars has been rouuded up. Rusk May Recover. Viboqua, Wis., Nov. 15. — Dr. Schriner, one of the attendant physi cians on Gen. Husk, makes the state mant this evening that there is no ma terial change. He thinks that if no serious complications arise within a few days there are good grounds for the belief that his patient will rally and recover. Gun Went Off, as Usual.

A RAILROAD TREASURER ROBBED IN THE ROOKERY BUILDING. HE IS KNOCKED INSENSIBLE. Two Highwaymen Attack J. A. Drake, of the Indiana. Illinois &;iowa ßailroad, in His Private , Office and Get Away With Twenty Thousand Dollars— Work of Daring Criminals. Chicago, Nov. 15.— J. A. Drake, treasurer ot the Indiana, Illinois & lowa rail/oad. was assaulted in his office in the Rookery building today and robbed of many thousands of dollars, which he had packed In the valise preparatory to going out upon the road to pay em ployes. A mail carrier, in passing Mr. Drake's office, heard a noise within, and, upon entering, found the official lying upon the floor, bruised and ia a "I've been robbed by two men," said Mr. Drake feebly, and the opened safe, overturned valise and scattered papers confirmed his statement. Mr. Drakfl had evidently received rough treatment. Big welts on his head bore evidence of savage blows. He had but little to say, but the sum of $25,000 was mentioned as missing, and it was soon understood that the robbers had made away with that amount. Soon the news of the robbery had spread through the big office building, and all kind of wild tales were circulated. The central station detectives were notified and Inspector Shea's men put to work on the case. The assaulted treasurer was able to get on his feet in a few hours and left the building. The officials were very reticent and oid not want to say much, although admitting that a robbery had occurred. The assault occurred about 7 o'clock, when there were but few people in the building. No one about the place re members of having seen suspicious characters, aud dense mystery sur rouuds the affair, which is" one of the boldest robberies which has occurred iv Chit-ago for years. The, result of a long conference be tween officials of the road and Inspector Shea threw but little light on the mat tev. The detectives have but little to work on, and just at present are groping about in the dark. "Mr. Drake came down early this morning," said luspector Shea, "to secure money to pay off along the line. He took $20,000 from the safe, intending to leave on the 7:30 train. He was fol lowed into the office by two ordinary looking men and struck down and the §20.000 taken. He was struck on each temple, aud his head bears the marks of the blows." "Have you any clew to wojk on?" "Ur n! Well, it shows that the people who committed the robbery were well acquainted* with Mr. Drake's move ments and knew the ilay tie would leave with money to pay off." Drake was struck as he was leaving the vault, as his position on the floor in dicated. He could,. Jtiye. up very accu rate descriptions of the robbers, but in dicated that they were heavy men and wore large ulsters. While Mr. Drake lay semi-conscious on the floor the rob bers unlocked his valise and scooued the pay envelopes within large pockets of their ulsters. This work required but a moment, and they hurriedly made their escape. Occurring as it did in the Rookery, one of the largest and best known office buildings of Chicago, situated in the heart of the business district, the rob bery caused intense excitement. Busi ness was almost at a standstill in the neighborhood during the day, and em ployers aud clerks were equally ex cited over the sensational theft. The office of the Indiana, Illinois & lowa Railroad company is in charge of Sid uey S. Whitney, general agent for Chi cago. F. M. Drake, president of the road, has been out of the city several days, and his son, John A. Drake, the treasurer, only arrived here yesterday. It has been the custom of the treasurer to pay the employes of the road iv checks. Had the custom been continued the startling robbery would not have been attempted in all probability, but within the past week the officials of the company decided to pay the men in currency. It is thought probable that the rob bers learned this month's pay roll would go out in currency from a circular which was issued the first of the month, announcing that wages would thereafter be paid in cash instead of checks. These circulars were distrib uted all aloug the railroad among the employes, and one of them could very easily have fallen into the hands of one of the thieves. The company pays its men twice a niontu, on the Ist and the 15th, and it was to make the last November payment that Treasurer Drake was starting out to do ■when the robbers attacked him and stole the $20,000 which was intended for the railroad men. The news of the robbery created a hustle at the central police station, the like of which has not been since assassin Prendergast was brought there after shooting Mayor Harrison. The police overhauled many suspects, and tonight it was reported that detectives had arrested two men at a depot who refused io give an account of themselves, and that they were locked up at the central station. None of the officers would admit that au ar rest had been made. SHOT BY BURGLARS. Two Members of the Prunty Fam ily Badly Wounded. Chicago, Nov. 15.— Thomas Prunty was shot and killed by burglars at his home in West Thirteenth street last night, and two other members of the family, Sadie and Peter Prunty, were woqnded by the burglars' bullets. The thieves escaped. Mrs. Prunty was awakened by the intruders, who were in her bedroom. She called to her husband, who rushed to grapple with the men. A shot from one of them stopped him, and he fell, dying almost instantly. The noise awakened other members of the family, and a son and daughter, rushing to their mother's room, blocked the exit of the burglars. More shots followed, aud the daughter fell with a bullet in her thigh, the son being shot in the aukle. The burglars spraug over the wounded youug woman aud made their escape Two policemen who were near at the time gave chase and fired at the retreating men, but without effect. ON THE WARPATH.

Sauk Rapids, Nov. 14.— 1f Anne Van Enschutz, a domestic for the past two years in the employ of County At torney Senn, cau prove that that is her name, she is in a fair way to receive an inheritance of $25,000. Her story is re lated as follows: Mr. Van Enschutz was a native of Belgium and was of noble birth. During his younger days, while traveling, he met a lady whom he much admired and afterwards made his wife. She having no rank, and he fear ing the anger of his father should the news become knowu, it was kept a secret for some time. The father final ly learned of the marriage and was very angry with his son, and made life such a burden for him that ne left the old country and came to America, locat ing in St. Cloud, where he afterwards died, leaving the wife and two children, Anne and a boy, who is now working in this county. Mrs. Van Enschutz afterwards married a man named Dun ken, of St. Cloud, and the son aud daughter, not taking kindly to a step father Jof Dunken's stamp, who was an habitual drunkard aud died in a saloon last winter, left home and have since earned their own living. Mrs. Van Enshutz died two years after her marriage to Dunken. The girl has re ceived word from the attorney of her grandfather's estate iv Belgium that he has the money in his possession, some thing over $50,000, and will forward it as soon as he has secured sufficient proof as to her right. Aune is an honest, hard-working girl, whom the people here have taken considerable interest In, and it is earnestly hoped that she will soon be able to satisfy the attorney as to her right to the property of the deceased Van Enschutz. PAGE AXILLiS iJURXED. Very Heavy Loss to the City of Fergus Palls. Speclal to the Globe. Fergus Falls, Minn., Nov. 15.— The Page mills, located on the outskirts of this city, one of the largest manu facturing plants in the northwestern part of the state, caught fire at 2 o'clock this morning and burned to the ground. The loss is complete. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is supposed to have caught from the wooden box out side which leads to the dust room under the main platform of the mill. At any rate, the fire was first discovered break ing through at the northwestern corner of the mill, in close proximity to the oil room. When it reached the oil there was a sudden burst of flame, and the whole structure then went almost like a pnff of eunpowder. The employes, four of whom were on duty at the time, were barely able to escape with their lives, and had not even time to save their clothing. One man, Al- SPECIAL COUPON FOR PART i.

From the mill, which is a large six-story frame structure, the tire communicated to the 120,000-bushel elevator twenty-five feet west, and it, too, burned to the ground, with some 30.0'J0 bushels of wheat. The cooper shop, several hundred feet northeast, was also totally destroyed with all it contained, and even the dam and flume— it was an exclusively water power plant— were badly injured, while at least one-quarter of the wagon bridge which spans the river just above the dam was burned away. Within three hours from the time the fire first caught the entire plant was a smok ing mass of ruin 8. The mill was leased by the George Tileatou Milling company, of St. Cloud, which has conducted it for the past two years in connection with its large St. Cloud mill. It was a 600-barrel plant, and was run almost steadily at its lush est capacity. The local manager was J. S. Sutclitfe, and the employes number from thirty to forty. The title to the property was held by C. D. Wright, president of the First National bank of this city, as assignee of the original Page Mill company, which went to the wall through unfortuuate deals in flour about three years ago. The loss is a severe blow to botn the lessees and the estate, for the loss is total, and U;e in surance, while large, will not make it up. Tbfl milling plant was insured in stock companies through local agencies to the amount of $27,750. The company had $21,000 insurauce on wheat, stock and machinery. The mill was built in 18S5 at a cost of §100,000. The present value waa estimated at about $50,0U0 to £60,000, which is a total loss. The George Tiles ton loss is uot much greater than the insurance, except the indirect loss of the stopping of the mill in the middle of the best season. , AMELIA DARBY'S FATE. She Gets Fifteen Years for Com mitting a Murder. Ottumwa, 10., Nov. 15. — Amelia Darby, who Monday pleaded guilty to murder in the second degree for killing Thomas Lloyd, was sentenced today to tlfteen years in the penitentiary. She was the divorced wife of Jockey Evans and was alleged to have been separated from Thomas Lloyd. She confessed that she went to Keb, lured Lloyd into the woods and killed him. Evans was convicted of the murder in the first de gree and given a life sentence. The court room was crowded today. When sentence was passed Mrs. Darby never flinched. Her three-year-old child and her aged mother and father and her husband's relations, who were present to hear the sentence, broke down, but the prisoner manifested no feeling. She avowed to an officer, that, although she must atone by punishment of fifteen years in the penitentiary and her husband for life, the dog ' who maligned her character could not come back to life, and she was glad of it. A new trial will be asked for Evans. New Sisters* Home. Special to the Glohe. Hastings, Minn., Nov. 15.— W. W.

Beautiful Girl of Nineteen, Reared in Luxury and Society, Runs Away and Lives With a Gam bler—After a Long Search la Located and Recovered Ea Route Home. The limited train for Chicago last evening had among the passengers an Eastern detective and a beautiful young girl, who was closely watched by the officer. The youug woman was Miss Louise Norton, who has been miss ing from her home at Asbury Park, N. J., for the past four months. She is the only daughter of wealthy parents, is nineteen years, beautiful and well educated, and her sudden disappear ance created a sensation at tne time. Since then detectives have been working on the case, but it was not until within the past week that an inkling of her whereabouts was discovered. A letter she wrote to a girl friend furnished the clue, and a detective immediately start ed for the Northwest. The letter had been mailed on a railroad mail car, and, after reaching St. Paul, the officer had a deal of difficulty in locating the young girl. With the assistance of the postoflice authorities, it was finally learned the letter had been mailed at some point near Duluth. A description and photograph of the missing girl waa sent to the police of the several cities in that section, and the result was that she was located by Capt. Martin Gallagher, of the West Superior police department, in that city. The girl when fouud by Capt. Gallagher was liviusr with a well known sporting man in West Superior, and at first denied that she was the per son for whom the officers were search ing. Capt. Gallagher, however, would not be bluffed, and finally the young lady weakened and acknowledged that she was Miss Louise Norton. Capt. Gallagher notified the detective, at St. Paul of his find, and more by force than persuasion brought the runaway to St. Paul yesterday. When Capt. Gallagher arrived in the city with his charge he visited police headquarters, and the detective from her home was sent for. Miss Norton demanded an attorney and announced her intention of not gome home. A talk with the officials showed her the folly of making any trouble, and yesterday afternoon she reluctantly consented to accompany tha detective back to her parents. It will be remembered that Capt. Gal lagher is the official who located and. re covered Maime Schwartz, who was kid naped from her homo on West Ninth street, St. Paul, June 18. 1892. The captain called on the Schwartz family yesterday. A TOWN IN A FIItQNZY. Pretty Birdie Baugh Horribly Mutilated by a Fiend. Alliance, 0.. Nov. 15.— Miss Birdie Baugh, aired twenty years, the only daughter of C. C. Bautrh, a wealthy farmer residing just west of tho city limits, was outraged and murdered last night by Curt Davidson, a farm hand, who then attempted suicide by cutting his throat with a razor. Baugh and his wife were away Irotn home. Davidson boards with the family. No one wit nessed the crime, but, from the appear ances of the kitchen, it seems that Miss Baugh had waited until her two broth ers and Davidson had goue to bed, and then covered the fire and was taking off her shoes when Davidson returned and struck her on tho head with a piece of iron. The brute then picked her up and carried her to the barn, a distance of 100 yards, where he outraged her and then cut her throat from ear lo ear. The crime was not discovered until this morning, when JViiss Baugh's brother found her mutilated remains nearly stripped of the clothing lying on (lie barn floor. At about the same hour a farmer living half a mile from the Baugn residence discovered Davidson lying on a pile of straw in iiis barnyard with his throat cut. The police were notified, and the fellow was brought to the city and taken to the hospital. He is about forty years of age, unmarried, and had wonted for Baugh for several years. He was always considered of a morose and ugly disposition, and had but few friends. Miss Baugh was a strikingly beautiful girl, and was a gen eral social favorite. The physicians say that Davidson may recover, but if he does he will probably be lynched, as the town is in a frenzy of excitement over thefrightful affair. An assembly of men at designated points in the city during the evening convinced the local authorities that the murderer Davidson is in imminent danger of the rope or oullet before morning. The mayor wired the sheriff to come at once from Canton. The sheriff arrived shortly after 10 o'clock, and the guard on Davidson was rein forced, but in less than an hour the crowd became so threatening that Com pany X, of the Eighth regiment was ■ ordered out. They are now stationed at the barracks under arms. The men who are eager to finish Davidson are not awed by the soldiers, urging that the members of the company are in sympathy with the would-be Ivnchers. There is intense excitement throughout the city. Younjj Forger Suicided. St. Joseph, Mo., Nov. 15. — Yesterday Edward Burke, a well connected young n.an of this city, cashed a number of worthless drafts at various business places. The frauds were discovered, and today when Burke, who was at his mother's home, found the officers were comiuK to arrest him, he swallowed a dose of strychnine and died a few mo ments later.
