The OBE's holiday offer of wit and
music, in the form of Palmer Cox's
"Queer People" and "The World's
Sweetest Songs" has been received with
so much favor by the residents of Min

Charter Suggestions.
The Hennepin legislative delegation
wii! hold another meeting Friday even
ing in the office of Senator-elect W. E.
Johnson, in the Wright block. It is un
derstood that a large part of the time

ter question, which promises to make
considerable trouble for legislators this
winter. Senators. B. Howard has re
turned from his trip East and will be
prepared to lead the discussion, which
he has made a special study.
Senator Hiram F. Stevens, of the
Ramsey delegation, coincides with the
opinion of the attorney general con
cerning the class division of cities, but
suggests a way out of the difficulty.
This is to pass a set ot charters for the

they shall not become operative til!

John Duman Uses Laudanum
Instead of a Razor in
Snuffing- Off.
James Sheridan Stabs a Man
Named Van Epps in
the Side.
Prominent Minneapolis Peo
ple Off for a Trip to
Europe and Africa.
John Daman, a barber who conducted
small shop at 2019 Washington ave
nue north, came to the conclusion yes
terday that la* had lived long enough on
this mundane sphere to warrant a trial
of the other and mystic world. He
took laudanum and died. Now he lies
at the morgue, while near him, on an
other slab, lies the body of the beautiful
young woman, Catherine Cling, who
was murdered the night before.
Duman was despondent, it is said,
over a combination of affairs—love and
financial reverses, the latter in a small
way. Monday night he went to the
lodging house at 119 Nicollet avenue
and took a room on the third floor. He
registered under the name of James
Flynn. He remained there all night,
and during yesterday morning an at
tache of the lodging house conversed
with him at about the noon hour.
About 5 o'clock he was discovered in
his room, dead. A bottle of laudanum,
emptied of its contents, told the story of
his death. Coroner Spring was uotilied,
and had the body removed to the morgue.
Duman was twenty-one years of age
and unmarried. He lived at 501 Twen
ty-first avenue south.
He Stabs Van Epps in the Side.
Yesterday afternoon at about 2o'clock
a gentleman named Van Epps was driv
ing along Fourth avenue south, and
when near Flour Exchange his horse
was stopped by James Sheridan, the
man notorious in the Harris murder
trial, who held the animal's head and
began to abuse an Epps. Van Epps
immediately jumped out of the buggy
and engaged in a fistic scuffle with
Sheridan, knocking him down and kick
ing him in the face. Sheridan got up
and began to run away. Van Epps was
about to return to the buggy when he
chanced to look down at his side, and
was horrified to find that in some way
lie had oeou stabbed in .the right side
by Sheridan.
He bled profusely and was removed to
his home,where be now rests easily.and ;
his wound is not considered dangerous, j
Sheridan was arrested, aud is now at j
the central station.and will be arraigned \
this morning at 9 o'clock. Sheridan j
claims that the quarrel grew out of a |
little trade between himself and Van !
Epps. Van Epps, he claims, bought a
horse of him some time ago, and prom- j
ised to pay for the same on a certain !
date. lie did not do so, nor has he
since, and was intent upon cheating |
Sheridan out of his just dues. Sheridan
says his lawyer advised him to take
the horse wherever he could find it, and
he proceeded to carry out the instruc
tions, holding the horse, as above re
corded. Sheridan says he used a pocket
knife to stab Van Epps with, but did it
in self-defense, as he was getting the
worst of the deal.
Banquet to Aid. Rand.
The friends and coustituants of Aid.
Lars If. Rand, of the Sixth ward, dem
onstrated their appreciation of his act
ive work in the city council last night
by tendering him a banquet. The
event was a banner one, so far as the
Sixth ward is concerned. It took place
at Olson's hail, 120') Washington avenue
south, in the very heart of the alder
man's bailiwick, as it were. There was
a large attendance of both ladies and
gentlemen. There were music and
speeches, the latter being delivered at
the conclusion of the menu discussion.
Mr. Rand,' among others, spoke in his
customary happy vein, and was ap
plauded enthusiastically when he felt
himself obliged to take his seat.
A Trip to Africa.
A party of prominent Minneapolltans
left yesterday for an extended European
and African trip, to be of four months'
duration. The party consisted of B. F.
Nelson and wife, together with their
dauenter Bessie, and 11. C. Jefferson,
wife and children. The party will reach
New York Saturday, and from thai port
a steamer will be taken to Gibraltar.
Several weeks will be spent In sunny
Spain in viewing the principal
cities and a run will be taken
up to Granada to view the Alhambra.
By way of Southern Frence the trip
will be extended to Italy, and from
Rome the Mediterranean will be crossed
for a trip up the Nile to the first rapids.
This trip will require twenty-one days,
and the Nile will be seen when it is at
its best. Through Syria the party will
go to Jerusalem and various other por
tions of Palestine. About a month will
be spent in the Holy Land, and Minne
apolis will not be reached again until
about the middle of April.
Providing for Plugs.
The humane society met yesterday
afternoon to consider plans for dispos
snia of broken-down horses, some of
which the society is maintaining. There
is au unusually large number of dis
abled horses this winter, largely owing
to the drouth of the summer, which has
been hard on the feet of the animals.
Agent Tatro. of the society, took charge
of forty-three horses durine November,
which were either shot or taken in
enarge by him.
On With the Dance.
The committee on arrangements for
the cruiser ball has decided to meet daily
in the forenoon. Interest "in the ball
is steadily increasing, and it has been
decided to issue 1,000 invitations, which
will include the governor of the state
and his staff, the officers at Fort Snell
ing, and a number of other prominent
people at home and abroad. Senator
Washburn and Congressman Fletcher
have secured boxes and are both ex
pected to be present.

Yesterday David Joyce, the million
aire lumberman of Lyons, 10., and well
known throughout the Northwest, died
at the West hotel after an illness of
several weeks. Death was caused by
paralysis. lie was nearly seventy
years of age. His wife and son have

Cases Against Him Were Dls-
missed Yesterday.
William M. Streeter, vice president of
the defunct Guaranty Loan company,
who has been tried twice for embezzle
ment, left the district court yesterday a
tree man. When the cases against him
were called before Judge Elliot the
c urt asked the county attorney what he
should do with them. Mr. Nye replied
thai inasmuch as Mr. Streeter had been
tried twice and no conviction had fol
lowed he was of the opinion that the
remaining cases had better be dis
missed. Assistant County Attorney
Peterson stated that he had discussed
the matter with Judge Smith, who was
of the same opinion. Juage Elliot
therefore dismissed the cases.
The cases against H. K. Cole and S.
M. Houghton for the same offense were
also dismissed.

the 100-mile road record on Park ave

being 100 miles In 5:37. Hanson took
all the records from five miles up.
Transcontinental Lines Further
Than Ever From Agreement.
Cjiicago, Dee. 4.—The transconti
\ nental lines are meeting with great
[ trouble in their effort to get together,
and, to make matters worse, there
seems to be a disposition on the part of
some of the lines to ignore the agree
ment into which all the lines entered
last week to abolish commissions. It is
declared that commissions are being
paid on the streets of San Francisco
just as they were before the agreement
was made. It is also said that the agents
of the Missouri Pacific in Omaha have
been paying commissions, and when
called to account to have saiu that they
were ignorant that any agreement had
been formed. If this sort ot thing con
tinues for any length of time there will
be no association formed at all, and the

Western territory vvill be in a state of
State Commissioners Make Their
Annual Report.
Dcs Moines, 10.. Dec. 4.—The lowa
railroad commissioners today filed their
annual report with the governor. It
shows only a slight decrease during the
year in the number of .employes and
compensation. The number of em
ployes was 24,215; compensation, HO,
--378,340. The total tonnage of lowa
lines, not counting the Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy, which failed to re
port, was 15,930,906. Taxes paid in the
state amount to 11,426,014. The total
earnings for the roads of the state is
given at 840.099,079. Proportion of op
erating expenses in lowa is given as
{28,020,531. The commissioners ask the
next legislature to give them power to
compel roads to answer questions asked,
which they now refuse in many cases to
do, making the reports very incomplete.
Made Manager of the Detroit Car
Service Association.
W. A. Carpenter, who for many years
was general freight and passenger
agent for the Eastern Minnesota, has
been appointed manager of the Detroit
Car Service association and joint weigh
master of the Detroit Weighing and In

Twenty-two colonists, en route to
Punta Gorda, Fla., from West Superior,

pected that the first party will be fol
lowed by another larger party the first
of next year.
No Special Theatrical Hates.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 4.— The
passenger agents of the various railway
i lines in Kansas City were today in
structed by wire from their general pas
senger agents lo decline to grant special
rates or concessions of any sort to
"theatrical companies or parties of any
class.'-" Never has there been a time
when a large theatrical company or a
party of ten or more people of any sort
traveling together and to the same des
tination has been denied a special rate
or concession. The adherence to the
order will cause much consternation iv
theatrical circles.
The Twin City rate sheet is still de
tained in the hands of the printer. The
Great Northern demands that its lake
rates be either included now or a prom
ise given that they will be added to the
sheet in the spring. The representa
tives ot the Chicago lines will go no
farther than to say they will consider
the matter next spring. The Soo and
the Duluth, which have lake connec
tions.are satisfied with the latter propo
sition, but the Great Northern wahts a
definite promise.

Post-Mortem Over the Young
Woman's Remains.
A post-mortem examination was con
ducted over , the remains of the mur
dered woman yesterday afternoon at
the county morgue, and it was discov
ered there was a fracture of the sKull
besides tne wound caused by the fatal
bullet. The woman's nose and upper
lip were "also crushed in. The police
learned that during the early hours of-
Monday morning Miss Ging received a
note, brought to her by Eddie Egan,
Messenger 47 of the A. I). T. com
pany, which she read and tore up im
mediately after, appearing to be agi
tated and angry. The boy stated that
he had carried some fifteen or twenty
notes to her from the same man, who
always telephoned for him from the
Nicollet house. The man always re
fused to sign the delivery ticket, and
paid him extra for not insisting upon it.
A photograph of a man found in Miss
Ging's bedroom was shown the boy,and
he identified it at once as that of the
man who sent the notes to her. This
man turned out to be Hat vey Axford,
formerly traveling salesman for Patter
son & Stevenson, but at present local'
manager for a St. Louis clothing firm,
Marx & Haas.
During the afternoon Inspectors Mor
rissey and Courtney took Axford to the
central station, where he was closeted
with the police officials. To a reporter
he said he lived at 1300 Nholiet avenue,
and was at home with his wife during
Monday evening. >He said he had
known Miss Ging for six or seven
years, and that she used to board at the
Linden at the same time he and his
wife did.
"Two years ago," cuntinued Axford,
"she went 10 Chicago with us. She
used to visit at the house often and was
a great friend of my wife. She was a
girl in a thousand. Somebody- asked
me this morning if 1 had heard of the
murder, and I couldn't believe it. 1
told my wife to go over and see if she
could do anything for the niece."
Axford said he could guess of no mo
tive tor the murder unless some fellow
wanted to get her money. The ring
found in a chamois skin bag, pinned
to her corset, he said must have been
given to her by the man Hayward re
ferred to—Reed. He admitted, having
been out with Miss Ging on several oc
casions, and had also written to her.
He had sent notes to her by messenger
boys. but denied having sent one Mon
day morning. As near as he could re
member he had not written to her since
the time he was in Dcs Moines, and that
was three or four weeks ago. Miss
Ging, Axford said, had one of his pict
ures and he had one ot her.
Able to Account for Himself on
the Night of the Murder.
Hayward, who was under police sur
veillance during the entire day and
spent most of the time in the chief's
office at the city hall, appeared to be
able to account for all of his tine Mon
day night. The following is the sub
stance of his statements which he gave,
apparently without hesitation:
"1 was at the Ozark until about 7:30,
when I left there and went over to take
Miss Bartleson, a friend of mine, to the
theater. We went together to the Grand
opera house, and afterwards I accom
panied the young lady to her home and
left her after 11 o'clock. The last time
1 saw Miss Gins* was yesterday morn
ing, shortly before 12 o'clock. 1 did not
have any conversation with her, and
that was the last time I looked upon her
alive. lam thankful that 1 can account
forevery momentof my time last night.''
Upon being asked in what relations
he stood with the murdered woman, he
replied that he rented the rooms to her
about three weeks ago, hut he had
known her previously, both In a social
and business way. Last summer he
was in the habit of taking her out rid
ing, "but," he continued, "It has been
seme lime since 1 have been out with
her: it has been at least two months.
1 never was very Intimate with her;
only had a passing acquaintance with
her, brought about by our business re
lations. 1 suppose you wish to know
what my business relations were with
her. 1 loaned her at different times
large sums of money. I have her notes
for different amounts which she got
from me dvring the past summer. 1 have
two for 52.000 anu another one for
$1,000, which she gave me during Au
gust and .July. The past week she got
about 57.000 Irom me to start in busi
ness, and, as security, she was to give
me a chattel mortgage upon her stock.
She was in business in tie Svndieate
block before, but she desired to extend
her business. She was going to rent a
store opposite the Syndicate block to go
into the millinery business.and I am not
sure but that she rented the store iast
Saturday. Beside the chattel mortgage
that I was to hold she made over to liie
a 510,090 policy in the Travelers' Life
Insurance company to secure the other
notes that 1 had cashed for her. She
always seemed to be a good business
woman, and knew how to take care ot
her money."
He was asked if he gave the 57,000 to
her in cash or in the form of a check
and replied that lie paid her the amount
in cash; for some time she seemed de
sirous of turning all she had into cash.
lie did not, however, know why she
wanted to do so.
"She put the rannci," he said, "in a
box which she had rented in one of the
trust companies in the city. and i sup
pose it is there yet, ualess she withdrew
it lately. 1 have not heard from the
company, and 1 do not kuow how we
shall find out about it, as 1 believe the
company will refuse to allow any one to
look without orders from higher pow
ers." ". *
"Did she have any other place of put
ting her money that you know of?"
"She used to have an account with

Ant Episode of the Summer Just
In connection with tho murder, it may
be mentioned that during the first part
of last Slimmer Miss ('ing and Harry
Hayward figured in an episode which
the police considered ••romantic." Hay
ward, Miss Ging and another young
lady were out driving of an evening,
and took the road around Lake Harriett
While passing through a densely wood
ed portion of the road a highwayman
stepped out from the shadows and
stopped the horse*. He ordered the oc
cupants of the carriage to hold up their
hands and deliver over what money
and jewelry they had in their posses
sion. Hayward, strange to say.' had but
a few silver dollars, but Miss Ging had
a gold watch and some very valuable
diamonds. The robber took the few
silver dollars, and also pocketed Miss
Ging's jewelry. The party drove on,
and the matter was reported to the po
lice. Of course, no clue to the perpe
trator of the robbery was ever discov
ered, and some ugly rumors have been
going the rounds ever since. Hayward
always catties a revolver, but for some
reason or other he did not use it on that
occasion. It may that he was too
frightened, or perhaps was "covered"
so completely that he could not bring
his weapon into play.
At any jate, the robbery occurred and
Miss Ging lost her diamonds. It is un
derstood that if a careful investigation
should be made and a certain East side
mercantile house manager placed on
the "spit" he would be able to tell
where the diamonds are and who the
highwayman was. There are also sev
eral private detectives who know more
about the affair than it would be good
for them were the police to learn of
their connection with the affair. At
any rate, it is whispered that tho high
way robbery was something on the
farce-comedy order, with the exception
that the booty was not returned, and it
never was the intention that it should
Hayward has also been mentioned In
connection with a Mine. Gould, who a
year or so ago occupied apartments on
Hennepin avenue, opposite the West
hotel, where she reigned as the "queen
of mysteries." In other words, she
posed as a "seventh daughter of a sev»
enth daughter," whose peculiar birth
had given her the power lo delve into
the occult and tell the past, present and
future. There is an interesting story
behind her appearance and disappear
ance from the city, in which a large
transfer of property on Lowry Hill is
involved. The transfer of the property
is on file in the district court There is
also a story of "South America" and a
"drowning at Lake Harriet," all of
which will in due time be given to the

| Cowes, Isle of Wight, Dec. 4.—A rep
resentative of the Associated Press had
an interview this afternoon with Rich
ard Grant, secretary of the Royal Yacht
squadron, who telegraphed to the Asso
ciated Press saying that a challenge for
the America's cup was mailed Sunday
night. Mr. Grant said he received a
telegram from Lord Dunraven at about
10 o'clock on Sunday morning, asking
him to immediately issue a challenge to
the New York Yacht club to contest for
the America's cup. Mr. Grant added:
•'lt was somewhat unexpected, as when
1 last heard from Lord Dunraven it
seemed extremely doubtful whether a
challenge was possible. I acted im
mediately, wrote the challenge and
posted it the same evening. It, will go
to New York on the Teutonic, which
sails ou Wednesday next from Liver
••I cannot give the text of the chal
lenge, owing to a special request of
Lord Dunraven, who is most particular
that it shall remain in confidence until
the challenge actually reaches the hands
of the New York Yacht club members.
I may say, however, that it is iv pre
cisely the same form as that which was
issued in 1892, subject, of course, to a
private agreement between Lord Dun
raven and the committee, which clauses
Lord Dunraven drafted, and were those
discussed in the correspondence be
tween Lord Dunraven and the com
•T presume Lord Dun raven is satis
fied with the committee's letter, in
which almost everything is conceded to
him except the change of course from
Sandy Hook to Marblebead. This
should never have been requested. It
is much the same thing as if American
yachtmen had asked us to change the
Lowes course to Sunderland. I think
the New York Yacht club acted in a
generous ami sportsmanlike manner.
Lord Dunraven will go to the United
States early next year, and will prob
ably be in American waters for two
months before the race, lie admits
that in 1892 he had not sufficient time to
make preparations or to get the crew
accustomed to their new surroundings.
Some members of tho royal yacht
squadron will probably accompany Lord
iJunraveii to the United Stales," We,
the royal yacht squadron, are very well
pleased with the prospect of another in
ternational contest, and wo expect to
see a line race. The Vigilant's per
formances here showed her to bo a
good, boat, and I believe that if she
had been sailed by an English skipper
iind.ctew nothing exists on this side
which could touch her. How the new
boats will act off Sanity Book is a mat
ter which it is impossible to forecast,
and I should think it difficult to start
matches to windward. Mr. Watson will
undoubtedly make the great effort of
his life, and will doubtless, produce ft
splendid specimen of the boat builders'
art. You can be sure, at any rate, this
spring will see the race."
Jacksonville Repeals tho Ordi
nance Allowing Prize Fights.
j Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 4.—The
city council this afternoon repealed the
ordinance passed a year ago to permit
the Corbett-Mitchell prize tight to take
place in Jacksonville. Tho ordinance
was repealed by unanimous vote of the
council. This indicates that an im
portant change of sentiment toward
prize lighting has taken place in Jack
sonville since the Corbett-Mitchell en.
' counter, and increases the improbability
I of the Corbett-Fitzsiuiinonsor any other
debt taking place in Jacksonville for a
long time to come.
Indictments in Lincoln Bank
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 4.—The federal

in which nearly a million dollars were

jits labors today. At least one indict
ment is expected, and others are quite
probable, involving Lincoln people.
Over Fifteen Millions of Men and
Women Who Are in Serious
Trouble and Do Not Realise It.
"One out of every four persons we
meet upon the street, in tin* cars, or in
society, has kidney disease!"
He was a prominent man and a close
observer who made this remark, and he
spoke very earnestly.
"Just think of it!" he continued. "An
army of over fifteen million people iv
America alone is constantly carrying
the burden ot this most terrible of all
modern complaints, and yet few of
them know it. Strange as it may seem,
most men or women do not stop to think
that headaches, pains in the muscles,
and throughout the body, feverish ness,
gold feet, sleeplessness, fickle appetite,
and colored or scant urine are the cer
tain signs of the coming on of kidney
disease, certain as day turns to night,
unless it is checked promptly."
It was easy to understand the feelings
of fear, almost of horror, which could be
s-een upon the faces of the listeners.
Continuing, he said:
"I have never known, nor do I know
any physicians who are aware of more
than one thing that will certainly check
and cure this terrible trouble. That
remedy is a great modern discovery,
known to all scientists and most people
—it is Warner's Safe Cure. 1 do not
look upon it as a proprietary medicine,
but as an absolute cure for Blight's dis
ease and all kidney, liver and urinary
disorders, or female troubles, and it is
so regarded by the medical profession,
both here an I abroad. Ido not know
anything else about it, not even of what
it is composed, but I do know that it
has produced these effects in every case
of which I have ever heard."
It is perhaps of interest to know that
this remedy—Warner's Safe Cure—is
the remedy concerning which Dr. Win.
Edward Robeson, of the Loyal Navy of
England, said: "1 have been able to
give more relief and effect more cures
by the use of Warner's Safe Cure than
by all other remedies of the British
Dr. It. A. Gunn, Dean of the U. S.
Medical College, and editor of the Medi
cal Tribune, says: "The ingredients of
Warner's Safe Cure are among the most
valuable medicines of our Materia Med
lea, and the combination is such as to
insure the best possible action on the
kidneys and urinary organs."
With such facts in view, no man or
woman, however seriously affected by
kidney disease, need for a moment de
spair or have apprehension.
Gov. McKinley a Guest at a Blow-
Out at Delmonieo'a).
New York, Dec. 4.—The annual
dinner of the Ohio society at Delmon
ico's this evening was made the occa
sion of a compliment to Mayor-elect
Strong, the retiring president of the
society. A number of distinguished
guests were present, among them Gov.
McKinley, of Ohio, who, however, an
nounced in the early part of the even

Both Col. Strong and Recorder-elect
Golf were tendered enthusiastic ova

being introduced said: "1 do notknow

mayor than you kicked ma out of the
presidency of the society. I know you
ail voted for me, for since my election
I have found but two men in the city
who did not. Agaiu I thank you.
Your compliments are more than 1 can
The cheering which followed the
close of Col. Strong's remarks was re
newed as Recorder-elect ('off made his
appearance. Gov. McKinley greeted
him warmly.
Seth Low, the next speaker, said that
Col. Strong was an Ohio man, else he
would not have been elected. It was
not the first time that natives of other
states ran up against men from Ohio
and regretted it.
St. Clair McKelwav and others fol

lil a late hour.
Four Workmen Killed by an Ex-

engaged in laying water pipe. The
victims are N. Martin, aged twenty-six;

The thousand and one Pranks, Comic Adventures, and
Mischievous Escapades that Palmer Cox, in his flights of im
agination, takes his Queer People through are wonderful in
their variety, and most charming in their likeness to the exu
berant fancies of childhood; and yet, in every thrilling story o!
adventure and exciting incident, the sweet sunshine of kind
ness is always present, and, while captivated with the fun,
unconsciously the heart of youth is inspired with pure an 4
good impulses.
