<t the Annual Banquet of
the Home Market
Boston, Xov. 22.— The annual ban
|uetof tb« Home Market Club of Bos
ton, the leading Republican orsraniza
tioa of Massachusetts, was held at
Mechanics'building tonight. Hundreds
of well known Republicans gathered to
enjoy the hospitality of the club, ami to
take part in the reception to its guests.
Portraits of McKinley, Garb'eld, Harri
son, llayes, Senator Hoar, Thomas B.
Keed, and oth»»r Reuublican liijhts,hung
about the place. Upon the platform,
besides the party forming the reception
committee, were (Jen. Russell Alger, ut
Detroit, and Uev. Edward Everett
llalr, of Boston.
• After due attention had been devoted
to the viands. Col. Clark arose and ex
deii cordial greetings of fie Iloine Mar
ket club to the assembly. Col. Clark
then introduced Gov. Greenhalge. who
extended a welcome to the quests for
the people of Massachusetts.
Senator George F. lioar, of Massa
chusetts, was the next speaker. Re
fenittg to the recent election, he said.
In part: "This political victory of ours,
this victory in Kansas, in Vermont, in
CoanecticutjMid in Massachusetts, is but
the victory of the woikingman. It is
tlif victory of the farmhouse and of the
w rkshop, of men who perform a work
hi this iepublic to which these gentle-
D.t-n of tlu* Tariff Ketorm league are
iotai strangers."
Thomas B. Reed
was the next speaker, and when he
rose lie was received with an ovation
tiiat threatened to split the roof. He
was obliged to wait several minutes be
fore he could proceed. He said:
"I'erhans some of this great audience
will recollect that I cast a slight shade
of soberness over your dinner last year,
and I am afraid it may be the same this
evening. Yet 1 have just one reason
more than the rest of you for rejoieinir.
The result shows that there is in me the
prophetic instinct; not so fully devel
oped as 1 could wish, but still valuable.
Once daring the last session of con
gress, when the plans of the Democracy
had become developed, I ventured to
say to the leaders that when the people
of this country got at them in Novem
ber of this year they would bury them
in trenches. This was nearly true, but
there was a slight inaccuracy. 1
fihould have said that we would
bury them in trenches until the supply
of trenches gave out. We could not
bury them all, and,l notice some ghosts
of unburied bodies 'to and fro flitting
burialiess, save in the vukure's craw,'
have even reached Boston, and are still
hoarsely murmuring about 'tree raw
Materials 1 and foreign markets, and
■tied like topics of the under-world.
"And how richly they have deserved
their fate— these statesmen of the proud
promise and the paltry fulfillment,
"Did it ever occur to you that if the
brightest man among you had placed
before him on March 4, 1893, a sheet of
white paper, and had been told to write
down all the foolish things he would
hare liked to have the enemy do in or
der to compass their own destruction,
he would have left out 50 per cent they
actually did? Is there any one of you
that would have dreamed of that which
your Massachusee s Democratic con
vention called "the firm and vigorous
policy of the administration? Could
any one of you have thought of that
letter to Wilson and its railing, accusa
tions? Did any one of ever picture
the chairman of the ways and means,
with his knees under British mahogany,
receiving the plaudits of our business
rivals for service already tendered and
better service expected? Did you ever
think of David tl.'Hill as candidate for
governor of New York, and, as a neces
sary consequence, an unrosident and
homeless president? Had you anywhere
hung in the chambers of fancy the pic
ture of a head without a party and a
party without a heau? Could you have
imagined that, after all the warnings
which hung out from all the industrial
states at the elections which you cele
brated a year ago, those men would
have gone on to crucify American in
dustry for another year?
«■ Jiirkinjr the U< »pon*ibiiity.
"Victories bring responsibilities, and,
its 1 have punned out to you, our victory
is so great that it probably means re
sponsibility for many years. Of these
many years 1 shall not now speak. If
we have wisdom for two years, we will
be trusted for more—and the wisdom for
the next two years steins to be easy.
We have neither the president nor the
sei.ate, aid all we can do is to let the
country try the results of the folly of
1892. We shall have two years to look
over this situation so as to do the best
we can when our time has fully come
bo far we have done all that lay in our
power. 'Hie % bad work cannot so on,

Three Days Helpless in the Gale
—The Decks Swept by the
Icy Waved.
St. Johns, N.F., Nov. 22.—The Allan
line steamer Corean, Capt. Main, which
arrived here today from Glasgow and
Liverpool, encountered most frightful
weather and had many narrow escapes
from foundering. The decks ware re
peatedly swept from stem to stern, and
everything movable was swept over
board. It was impossible to keep the
engines going, and for three days the
steamer lay helpless in the trough of
the sea. The barometer dropped to
28.22. On Thursday, Nov. 15, the worst
gale of the voyage was experienced; it
increased every moment, and became a
regular hurricane. During the latter
part of the trip the weather was in
tensely cold, and the steamer was
thickly coated with ice from the waves
which washed over her. In spite of the
severity of the weather, all on board are
well, and beyond the damage on deck
the steamer appears to be in a sound
The Newspaper Man Who Tried

fear of a royalist uprising. It is alleged
that a plot has been discovered in which
an American newspaper correspondent
is the leade, and that the plottei was
ordered to leave the country, which he
did on the Australia. The newspaper
man mentioned is Claude H. YVetmore,

after the revolution as correspondent

gratiated himself with the royalists,
learned their secrets and exposed their
whole plot to the government, after
which the government officers went
through the process of deporting him
as a ruse to shield and conceal the real
nature of his relations with the govern

Out-Menages Louis
F. Menage.
And Works Them Off on Gulli
ble Englishmen With
Great Ease.
But Has Developed Into One
of the Biggest Rascals
of the Age.
Special to the Globe.
Yanktox, S. D., Nov. 22.—Recent
visits of English capitalists to Yankton
have developed stupendous frauds on
the part of J. T. If. Pierce, a prominent
business man of Yankton. It transpired
that he has in the past six or eight years
issued and sold to Englishmen some*
thing like $250,000 worth of fraudulent
school district bonds and bogus tax
certificates to a like amount. Besides
these transactions, tie is said to have
dealt evidently in fraudulent mortgages,
and to have raised $575,000 for the con
structiou of a railroad from Yankton to
Norfolk, Neb. Nothing definite can be
given at this end of the line regarding
the total of his transactions, but his
receipts are estimated at from $500,000
to 81,000,000. The money was all
procured iv London. The forged
school bonds ■ purport to have
been issued by various school districts
in the South Dakota counties of Yauk
ton, lion Homme, Hutchinson, Turner,
Clay and Union, and the tax certificates
cover imaginary lands in South Dakota
and Nebraska under the name of Pierce,
Wright & Co. Mr. Pierce runs offices
at \ankton. Spokane, Wash., and Holy
oke, Col. He has an office also in Lon
don, Eng., at 2 New Broad street. He
has a residence here and another in
London, and has divided his time be
tween the two places, living in luxurious
ease. He is thirty-five years old. and
came here twelve years ago from Le
mars, 10. He was then poor. He is of
English birth and a British subject.
He has built largely and substantially
in Yankton. The Pierce hotel, one of
the finest in the state, is one of his en
terprises. Mr. Pierce is missing from
London, and is said to be iv Mexico,
but this is mere supposition.
Life Insurance Frauds Unearthed
in Maine.
Portland, Me., Nov. 22.—About two
months ago Clinton A. Woottbury, a
resident of Deering, and general man
ager of tlie Portland Dry Plate com
pany, died. The autopsy by local phy*
siciaus did not determine the cause of
death satisfactorily to the insurance
companies in which he held heavy poli
cies, and the stomach and kidneys of
the dead man were sent to Prof. Robin
son, of Bowdoin college, for analysis.
The professor reports today that enough
prossic acid had been found in the
stomach to have caused death. There
is evidence of special import to support
a theory of murder or of suicide, and,
taken together, the* case is one of deep
mystery in every detail. The dead man
was insured, it is claimed, in the Mu
tual Life and the New York Life, of
New York, for $100,000, equally divided
between the companies.

That Is What One Witness
Said He Got in the Hirsh
field Case.
He Tried to Swear Away the
Character of Mrs. Hirsh
Helena Clerk Whose Arm Fre
quently Encircled Miss
Hog-an's Waist.
Fargo, N. D.. Nov. 22.—Mrs. Hirsh
field's battle in defense of her good
name—v struggle in which poverty is
pitted against wealth—is not so one
sided as it might seem. Powerful
friends have interested themselves in
her behalf. Ex-Guv. Toole, ot Mon
tana, has warmly espoused her cause.
Mayor Ball expressed his pecuniary
disinterestedness in these emphatic
words in arguing a motion before the
court: "If I were allowed to use an
oath in this court room 1 would say, 'By
G— d, sir, 1 will expend my private for
tune to the last cent to avenge this
woman's wrongs.' " Mrs. Hogan,
widowed mother of Mrs. Hirshtield,
has mortgaged her little cottage for
$350 to carry on the case. Helen Tripp.
of Helena, was the first witness put on
the stand today. She was employed in
Justice Murphy's office in Chicago,
where Hirshfiela and Miss Hogau were
married, tine said Hirshtield appeared
to be depressed and downhearted, and
did not act as though he was particu
larly pleased with his loss of ■ single
blessedness. Miss Jennie Tonn, of
Helena, overheard a conversation be
tween Mrs. and Miss Iloean and Mrs.
L. H. Hirschfield. in which the "former
had declared him an unclean Jew. and
Miss Hogan had said it was his money
she was alter. Witness said Mrs. L. H.
Hirshtield had engaged har to come to
Fargo. G, G. Huntley was an old
friend of Hirshfleld, and said that the
latter had devoted almost all his time to
business, and never had anything to do
with women.
The next two witnesses furnfshed the
first really sensational testimony in the
case. Jake Hildebrand was clerk in the
New York store at Helena, where Miss
Iloguu was employed as cashier. He
had, in a deposition taken in Helena,
sworn that Miss Hogan's character had
been above reproach during the period
she was employed in the store; that he
had never seen anything in her actions
to criticise, nor heard others criticise
her. Witness said that about ten days
after giving this testimony he had
thought the matter over, and concluded
that he had erred in giving testimony.
He had since recollected many circum
stances which would reflect on Miss
tfogan's chastity, and had frequently
seen one of the clerks put his arm
around her. He had resolved to come
to Fargo as a witness to correct errors
in his deposition. The merriment over
his repeated contradictory statements
was so great at times that Judge Mc~
Connell threatened to clear the court
room if it did not subside.
R. VV. Anderson was the much-taiked
of witness whose testimony was to clear
Hirshfieldof the allegation that he was
the father or Mrs. Ilirshtield's child and
at the same time convict the bride of
lewdness. It is on his testimony that
the whole light of the case will be
made. Anderson is a blonde young
man of dudish appearance and with a
fondness for cigarettes. In August of
last year lie was a "bellhop" at the
Palmer house, in Chicago. Hirslilield
and Miss Hogan stopped there three
days, and during this tiine.wituess said,
he had made and kept an engagement
with her. The hisses of the spectators
were silenced by the court, but they
made the witness nervous, and when
Col. Nolan nsked. "How much did you
get for giving this testimony?" he
blurted out, "6400 and expenses." Un
cross-examination witness said he Inul
been employed by Supt. Devereux, of
the United States l'inkerton agency, of
Soutn Clark street, Chicago. Ander
son was the last witness examined.
When he left the court room a crowd of
men followed him. Anderson darted
into a drug store, and from there was
taken by a private stairway to Attorney
MorrilPs office, where he remained until
train time. The crowd remained in
front of the office time, waiting for him
to reappear.

Congressmen Tawney, Heat
wole, McCleary and Kiefer
Talked Matters Over.
A Close Friend of Senator
Washburn Discerns a
Storm Cloud.
Northern Part of the State
Will Ask the Speak
A congressman who is not in touch
with the events of his whole state cuts
but a small figure at the national capitol.
To become acquainted with the situation
iv this state a lawmaker must, neces
sarily, came to St. Paul. This is
especially true in the present condition
of the body politic!. It is about time for
our congressmen to be going on to
Washington, where they will be asked
many questions as to recent events and
prospective happenings in and out of
our legislature. They will also be asked
as to the state of the senatorial contest.
Pointers on all these matters can be
obtained in this city; and that is proba
bly why several congressmen of the
state are now in the city.
An interesting conference was held
in this city yesterday, in which four of
the seven congressmen for this state
are Interested. Tlie gentlemen are
Hon. J. A. Tawney, Hou. Joel Heat
wole, Hou. J. T. McCleary and our own
Col. Kiefer. They were all in the city
yesterday, and all will soon be at the
national lawmakins: center. Hon. O.M.
Hall was also in the city, but, being a
Democrat and not being re-elected, had
no part in the conference. "The four
gentlemen mentioned have come to a
partial understanding on general mat
ters," said a gentleman who is a close
observer. "They will all stick to
gether on the Question of legisla
tion affecting national matters. They
all received mutual congratulations on
the size of their respective majori ies.
While they may act together on party
measures, it is certain that they will
have recommendations, in severalty, to
make concerning individual friends
who may want some reward for service,
in the ranks, during the recent cam
paign. They each have reqnests to
make of state officers elect, and will
act as individuals in that respect.
There are hundreds of places to ba
tilled, with, possibly, hundreds of ap
plicants for each place. Each of the
congressmen has friends, and will now
have a chance to show their popularity
and influence in a direction aside from
piling up majorities at the polls."
Hon. J. A. Tsuviicy
came from his home to the city yester
day. He expects to go to Washington
the last of uext week, provided the
health of his family permits. He said
that one of hi 3 children came home
from school a day or two ago with the
mumps, and lie has two more children
who are liable to attacks. This may de
lay his going East. He will not take
his family to Washington this winter,
as he is not certain that congress will
be in continuous session for a great
while. He claims that, having quad
rupled his majority of two years ago,
gives him the right to boast more than
any other congressman-elect.
Mr. Heatwole in tlie City.
Hon. Joel lleatwole was only in the
cny for a few hours. He contemplates
a visit to the East for a short time. Mr.
Heatwole is well known all over the
state, and he was given an ovation by
out-of-town and city residents yester
day. There is, probably, no man in the
state who has more personal friends and
admirers than has the Third district
congressman. "His election under the
existing, circumstances is but the be
ginning of a bright career.'' said a well
posted Republican yesterday.
Prol". JlcCleary Receives.
Congressman McCleary put in much
of the day at the Windsor yesterday,
conversing on state and national matters
with gentlemen who paid their respects
by calling upon him. l'rof. McCleary
is a treat student of finance and is a
fine conversationalist. His arguments
are cumulative and convincing; he
speaks in a low. musical voice, and his
countenance is pleasant and beams with
an Intelligent conception of the subject
Working for Wasliburn.
The work In the interest of Senator
Washburn Is not all confined to his
headquarters in the Windsor. It is
true that his lieutenants are keeping
guard in this city and looking after the
third house, as well as any members of
the legislature who 'come to the city.
There are a number of his workers
from various parts of the state on the
ground who have been summoned here
to help the cause along. In addition to
that, Eugene G. Hay, who owed his ap
pointment as United States district at
torney to Mr. Washburn, is writing let
ters to members out in the state in his
patron's interests. Other beneficiaries
of Mr. Washburn are doing the same or
are skirmishing about the state iv his
interests. There is an effort being
made by some prominent men to
swing tho re-election to Mr. Wash
burn. There are also talks of attempt
ed deals by which it is hoped'to bring,
new men of inlluence to his support.
it is said that several prominent men
have been promised influence in the
next state convention, provided they
now help the senator." This may bo
dangerous to the senator it it gets out
before the time for choosing a senator
arrives. With all the working and
promises there is no doubt that* thy
Washburn camp is in a nervous con
dition. .It is feared that some one will
betray the schemes being laid, and, for
this reason, the work is Rotate on cau
tiously. A gentleman who worked hard
for Mr. Washburn six /years ago was
heard to say to a friend yesterday iv a

A meeting of the members of the
house residingin the Fourth congres
sional district will be held soon, with a
view of discussing what candidates will
be urged for positions in the legislature.
It is thought that St. Paul will be very
modest in her requests, but other coun
ties in the district may be giveY some
recognition. It is suia that F. H. Day
ton, who was defeated by 1\ ii. Kelly
for the house in the second ward ill this
city, wants an office. He has siz<?d. up
the serjeant-at-arms office, and thinks
he could nil it. W. 11. bache wants to
be assistant in the same office, but some
of the Republicans of the city are op
posed to him. It is also said that tho
Kamsey county delegation is divided on
the question of who, if any one,
should be pushed by them for sucti
office as the county may be able to se
cure. „/•; ,
In the Cause of Education.
The bills to be presented at the com*
fne session of "the legislature will in«
elude several relating to educational
matters that, if passed, will aid very
materially in the working and manage*
nient of the district schools In particu
lar. The most important of these is the
one relating to the changing of the sys
tem in this state to the township, "in
stead of the district plan. The commit
tee appointed at the congress of super
intendents held last summer at the close
of the slate university summer school,
ana consisting of Dr. I). L- Kiehle, A,
M. perry, of Mantonville; A. Q. Mc
lntosh, of Good hue, and bupt. Preuder
gast, has the matter in charge, and a
report from them is expected in the
course of a week or two.
Another measure will also be intro
duced that will make additional pro
vision for the carrying out of the law
regarding state certificates, and a small
addition to the high school appropria
tion to provide for new districts that
ought to be under the supervision of
the high school board will be askel for.
What They Say.
Hon. J. M. Diment, ol Owatonna.whc
was a member of the legislature foul
years ago, was at the Merchants' yester
day. He says he is not looking fOr any.
thing in particular, but is testing after
his work in managing a successful cam
paign for his friends.
Senator A. W. Stockton, of Faribaalt,

Hon. O. D. Kinney. of Duluth. was in
the city on business yesterday. He says
that lie sees no change iv the hunt lot
offices within the gift of tbe legislature
since tie ma here iast week.

ton. came to St. Paul hist evening. He
could not stay away tram tne center of

located in a bouse on St. Anthony hill,
or some other polisheU quarter of the
Hon. E. N. Dare, of Elk River, a
member of the lower house,is quartered
at the Merchants'. He says that he will
assist M. H. Diße, or . Big Lake, m hia
aspiration to be second . assistant clerk
of the house. He will also support Mr.
Dow ling for clerk uf the same body.
His theory is that be will help ali news
paper boys along; for that reason he
favors Mr. Dow ling. r
S. T. Littleton, of Dodge county, is
quartered at the Merchants'. He has a
grudge against the Globs political re
porter because of the poor likeness of
him in the paper. Mr. Littleton is a
finer looking man than his cut would in
dicate, and would make a handsome
speaker of the house.
The prospect for reorganizing the
third bouse earlier than usual is good.
There are a great maaiy candidates for
offices in this body. If the organization
is delayed until after the meetiue of the
legislature, the defeated .candidates for
positions in the senate ■ and house will
be given a chance in the third house.
The qualification for membership in
the third house is aversion to work; any
one willing to work is not eligible.
Johnny Sloan is prominently mentioned
tor the position of serjeant-at-arms of
the organization. This is the only
working position in the house.
Hon. August Anderson, of Chlsajro
county, is being mentioned as the prob
able chairman of the appropriations
committee. He has had extended ex
perience in legislative work, and if
possessed of the requisite qualifications
for the place.
Henry Feig, of Af.vater, has been
mentioned several times as a candidate
for speaker. He has not been to the
city since the election, but it is said
thathe is conducting a vigorous cor
respondence on the subject. Mr. Feig
is remembered as the efficient secretary
of the state convention, anil has been a
prominent party worker, lie is quick
in discernment, and is well posted on
parliamentary practice. There are few
men who would equal him as a oresid*
ing officer.
Kentucky Druggists Must Get
Licenses to Sell Liquors.
. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 22.—The court
of appeals rendered a decision at Frank
fort today reversing the Jefferson cir
cuit court in the Fowler case. Dr. J. \V.
Fowler represented the druggists in
their test case of the law requiring
state license to be paid liy druggists
engaging in the sale of liquor.
Th« druggists were represented by
ex-Gov. J. Proctor Knotr, In the lower
court the case was won on the ground
that the law was unconstitutional. In
the decision today the validity of tha
law is upheld and the druggists lose.
The case is one which has attracted at
tention, not only In Kentucky, but over
the United Stales, because the question
involved—that of the ritrht of states to
require a license of druggists for the
sate of liquors is of vital importance to
the trade. The fate of tho issue here
was being awaited by organized drusr
gists in other states with.a vie'v to
similarly exempting themselves. ■
