at Home.
The Globe's holiday offer of wit and
music, in the form of Palmer Cox's
"Queer People" and "The World's
tiweetest Songs" has been received with
bo much favor by the residents of Min
neapolis, ami the mailorders from there
*re so heavy, that it has been decided
to place them on sale at the Minneap
olis Globe oflice, so that all those desir
int the work can be accommodated
easily and quickly. Ten cents in silver
buys any part of either work, and,us
the sapply of the full sets of each is
limited, all should come early. "Queer
People" is the funniest and "The Song

forth from a printing press. Call at the
Globe office, in Minneapolis, and «et

Sherlock Holmes' ideas may be all

certain times, but they do not always
worK out according to programme.
\- instance the case of Mayor Eustis,
of Minneapolis, and the tting murder
mystery. Mayor Eustis lias been read
ing Couau Doyle's works and has be
cvme an ardent admirer of Sherlock
Holmes and his met hods.
So he was determined to apply
Holmes* theories to the Gini: case. Three
days] after tiie murder of MissGing
Mayor Eustis had the horse that the
murderer used hitched up an 1 brought
to the starting point of tlie fatal jour
ney. Then the ciainbered into the

confidently expected ttie "intelligent
animal"* to retrace the route it took
three nights before.
But the "intelligent animal" had other
plans. After making several turns the
horse brought up before the shop of a
veterinary doctor who had recently

that the rooms of the association are

Numerous Slanders of a Would-
Kival Concern Effectually
Chicago, Dec. 11.—It cannot have
escaped public attention that during the
ast year there has been a persistent
and malignant endeavor on the part of
a few New York papers to discredit the
Associated Press. Day after day it has
been asserted that the Associated Press
was falling to pieces; that it was bank
rupt; that each month's business
showed a deficit; that its news service
was unreliable, and frequently behind
time; that there was widespread dissat
isfaction among its members. To those
who know the facts these statements
furnish fresh evidence of the desper
ate pliixht In which the unfortunate
United Press papers found themselves.
It was well known that many of those
who were llius most clamorous in their
praise of the United I'ress and most
solicitous for the welfare of the As
sociated Press papers were at the sama
moment applicants for admission to the
Associated I'ress. and in some cases
were offering largo bonuses for sucli ad
mission. The motives which inspired
this campaign of libel and falsehood are
easily discoverable. The prime movers
in the conspiracy—two ISew York ed
itors—were formerly conspicuous as
Associated Press officials. They used
the organization for their personal ad
vantage, imposing a heavy tax upon all
the other papers of the nation so that
they could get their own news s«rv
ice for a nominal weekly rate,
and finally when this was no longer pos
sible, because of a revolt, they set
about disrupting the organization of
which they were the trusted officers.
How they were given large blocks of
United Press stock, and how they then
secretly connived to push the fortunes
of this rival concern while they were
yet members of the executive committee
of the Associated Press, is a disgraceful
story, with which most intelligent jour
nalists are too familiar. It would be
impossible to answer in detail all of the
falsehoods which these very fertile
people can invent. It is perhaps
enough to say that tne Associated Press
holds today a position incomparably in
advance of that ever held before by auy
news-gathering organization; that'it in
cludes in its membership all the papers
of consequence in the nation, except a
small coterie on the Atlantic sea
board; that during the past year it has
taken into its membership an average of
three United Press papers a week and
has lost nose; that it is upon a most
satisfactory business basis, its receipts
exceeding its expenditures every w*;ek;
that therw is no discontent, but on the
other hand its members are proud of
its new service, which is immeasurably
superior to any the United Press has
ever offered; that its directors and
officer* are working in perfect harmony,
and are all loyal to the trust reposed in
them. Thu latest assertion, that the
general manager is at odds with the
board of directors, and therefore pur
poses resigning, is quite as false as"any
that preceded it.
As to a "settlement on a business
basis," repealed overtures for adjust
ment hay» come from the United Press
during the pa-t six inontus, and the
officers of the Associated Press have
wholly rejected them because they did
not wish to assume obligations that
would surely have proven insupport
able. Melville E. Stone,

Boston Sharper Well Known in

known as the kiug of swindlers. For
the past five years he has practiced law
in Seattle, and is wanted in Boston for
forgeries and embezzlement committed
prior to 188 U. In February of that year
lie uttered a forced sticurity bond for
?2,000 and was released on bail, suppliad
by his brother-in-law James Maloney,
and immediately skipped. Then his
past record came out. He had forced
orders on savings banks in which poor
people had their savings. Eight indict
ments are out against him lor these
offenses. Dore located in Miles City,
Mont., in 18S8. By his suave manner
he secured the confidence of the com
munity which was shaken when he ais
appeared after swindling the sisters of a
religious institution out of *!),oiX>. in
Soattiu a number of clergymen and
women trusted Dore with money which
they never recovered. The narration
of his subsequent crimes would Ell a
volume. Hammond, of London fame,
or rather infamy, empowered him to
collect sums due from aristocracy, whose
immunity prosecution depended on
keeping him (Hammond) out of England.
He Droved a splendid collector, but he
kept the money, it is claimed, and the
matter being scandalous Hammond had
no redress.

and less than two months airo. an inva

Yet such was the ease, according to th<»
statements made by Mrs. Archer and
her relatives to a reporter who visiied
their pretty home recently.
In ISSS she strained herself Id run

"Oh, the* agony 1 have suffered," said
Mr 9. Aicher, in "speal;irig of her illness.
"1 could not walk across the floor;
neither could 1 no up stairs without
stopping to let the pain in my chest and

The only relief i obtained was when I
visited Florida and speut several months
there. On my return, however, the
pains came back with renewed force.
"Last July," continued Mrs. Archer,
"1 was at Springfield. Mass., visiting,
and my mother showed me an account
in tho Springfield Examiner, telllug of

bought a box and besjau taking them,
and 1 have taken them ever since, ex

did not seem to benefit me, but I perse

my right ear ceased entirely. 1 kept
right on, and the distress that 1 used to
feel in my chest and arm gradually dis
appeared. Thß blood has returned to

"My son, too. had been troubled with

Mr. Archer confirmed his wife's state

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple are not a patent medicine in,, the
sense in which that term is usually un
derstood, but are a scientific prepara
tion successfully used in general prac
tice for many years before being offered
to the public generally. They contain,
in a condensed form, all the elements
necessary to give new life and richness
to t.he blood, and restore shattered
nerves. They are an unfailing spe
cific for such diseases as loco
motor aiaxla, part'.ril paralysis,
St. Vilus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia^
rheumatism, nervous headache, the
after effects of the grippe.palpitation of,
the heart, pale and sallow complexions,,
that tired feeling resulting from nerv-'
ous prostration; all diseases resulting
from vitiated humors in the blood, suclf
as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc.
They are also a specific for troubles
peculiar to females, such as suppres
sions, irregularities, and all forms of
weakness. They build up the blood and
restoae the glow of health to pah; or
sallow cheeks. In men they effect a
radical cure in all cases arising from
mental wony, overwork, or excesses of
whstever nature.
These Pills are manufactured by the
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, ISche
nectady, N. V., and are sold only in
boxes bearing the firm's trade mark mid
wrapper, at 50 cents a box, or six boxes
for J2.50, and are never sold in bulk or

Necessity of Financial Reform
Argued by the Chan
German Press Comments Vig
orously on the Move
Bkiu.ix. Dec. 11.—Princo noriWlolie
made a declaration of his policy as
chancellor of (Jermany in the ielchstag
today. His appearanc** in the chamber
elicited no demonstration. Prince Ho
henlohe said that his entry into office
did not imply a change in the system of
government. He would not. however.
In every case follow in the footsteps of
his predecessor: but he would reckon
with the actual fact* and loyally fulfill
his dutifls. The chancellor dwelt upon
the necessity of financial reform, the
maintenance of the colonial policy, the
necessity of strenetheninjc the navy,
and promised that just demands of the
agrarians would be satisfied.
In social questions, he added, the pro
tection of the weak would be the first
consideration of the government, which
would also endeavor to maintain peace
between the state and the church. The
applause was confined to the members
of the Might except during a passage in
which the chancellor insisted on the
necessity of co-operation between the
state and religion, when the members
of the Center party joined in cheering.
The agrarians applauded the references
to state aid in husbandry. Uiny mem
bers of the reiehstag. were absent, nota
bly the Socialist members.
Prince Hohenlohe's letter relating to
the request of the public prosecutor
that the reichstae: authorize the prose
cution of the Socialist members who re
mained rested, refusing to cheer for the
emperor on Thursday last, was re
ferred to the standing orders commit
tee, witii instructions to deal with It
without delay.
Riidset Discussed.
At the conclusion of tne clianccllor's
speech Count Posadowski opeued the
budget discussion. He dwelt upon the
necessity of reform in the imperial
financial system in order to place the
finances of the individual states upon a
■sounder basis. Bachmau. on behalf of
the Center party, said they met the new
chancellor without prejudice, but they
were opposed to new taxes, aud urged
that penal action against the socialists
could r.ot have effect.
Kichler, on behalf of the Radicals,
criticised the budget and protested
against the costly colonial policy and
the excessive expenditures for the army
and navy. He "demanded information
as to the causes which led to the change
ii] the chancellorship, and asked what
was the significance of the role placed
upon Yon Lucanu , chief of the em
