And while these matters were languish

Special to the Globe.
Washington, Dec. 17.—a very inter
esting contest that may last through a
half dozen congresses is going on over
the Altamonte canal scheme. At tl)9
present time Congressman. Baldwin is
advocating this proposition with all his
energy, and really iias the matter pretty
well along; but it now seems birhly
improbable that he will get the bill
through the house, because be will be
unable to secure unanimous consent for
its passage. Senator Allen, of Cloquet,
is here opposing the scheme and has
found one ally in particular whose in
terference threatens to start a contra*
versy as to the rights of an outside
member from the same state to inter
fere in what is called local legislation.
In this case Duluth wants the Alta
inoute caual while many ouside inter
ests in the Sixth district oppose it.
With this opposition is arrayed Co).
Kiefer, of the St. Paul district, who
thinks it will interfere with his big ca
nal proposition. Congressman-elect
Towne favors the Altamonte proposition,
as does the present member, and Con
gressman Tawuey, as a friend of the
next member from Duluth, has cham
pioned that side of the question. He
will insist that the gallant colonel keep
his hands out of the Sixth district. lest
he succeed in getting them badly
AiraiiJM tlir Twins.
The members from the Twin Cities in
the next congress will have to handle
the outride members very tenderly or
they will find themselves greatly in the
minority. licCleary, as is his custom,
will be. very careful about committing
himself, but the other four make iio se
cret of the fact that they do not propose
to allow Messrs. Fletcher and Kiefer to
run tiie delegation. This was showu in
the vote on the pooling bill, when Taw
ney and McCleary voted against it in
the faco of requests and pleadings made
by the Twin City influences favorable
to the bill. The fact that Congressman
Fk'tcher, by his splendid underground
system of working, will probably be the
only Mlnnesotan to get a really first
class committee assignment will not
help matters in the least.
Sugar and Populists.
The last attempt to get up the
sugar bill showed the Reuublican side
solid for the sujrar trust. Three Demo
crats betrayed their party and the peo
ple, but they voted with all the Repub
licans and all the Populists. The ex
planation of Senator Allen,of Nebraska,
that the Populists voted for the trust
because they did not think an honest
attempt was being made to net the bill
up recalls most vividly the fact that
this was the second time that the Ne
braska demagogue saved the sugar
trust. Had the three Populists—Allen,
Kyle and Peffer—voted with the Dem
ocrats, the bill would have been taken
up in spite of the Democratic traitors.
But the Populists who are crying cor
ruption and demanding power in the
\\ astern states will perhaps be able to
explain why the solid Populist votd
went on the side of the sugar trust.
Republicans who have been de
nnuueing the protection given the sugar
trust by the Democratic tariff bill will,
of course, have no trouble In explain
ing the attitude of the Republican sen
ators who voted solidly to help the
three Pvipuiists save the differential for
the trust.
(iorman and itoacU.
But the Democrats who were sur
prised at the fact that Messrs. Brief,
Gorm*n,Smltb and Gibson,the so-caiieel
conservatives, were paired in favor of
taking up the sugar bill, will be inter
ested in learning a portion of the inside
of the "deal." This interests the Dem
ocrats of North Dakota in particular,
because (senator Roach, of that state,
was a party to it. When Senator Roaca
was a boy he and Senator Gorman
played base ball together, and the in
timacy thus commenced has continued
through the years that have since
passed. VYhen the North Dakota man
came on here a little less than two
years ago as a member of the senate, it
will be remembered some very disagree
able revelations were unfolded, and an
attempt to throw him out of the senate
was really made.
Inside or the Deal.
In the management of his case during
all of that time Senator Roach leaned
upon the senior senator from Maryland,
and really thought that his seat was
saved by Air. Gorman. Of course Mr.
Gorman is and was a valuable friend,
but when all the facts are known the un
scrupulous Maryland man will oe found
to have received his full ponnd of flesh.
In other words, when Mr. Gorman was
paired in favor of taking up the sugar
bill he knew that Senator Roach had
agreed to vote with the Republicans and
the Populists for the trust, lie knew
this because he was In the chamber a
short time previous to the taking of the
vote and knew exactly when the matter
would be Galled up.
Martin, of Kansas, also voted with the
sugar trust, and Call, of Florida, wag
absent. The story is that Senator Brtue
secured one of these votes for the trust,
while Smith secured the other. This is
probably hardly correct. A statement
more nearly correct would say that the
so-called conservatives forced to get
finder cover knew that other votes bad
been secured to take their places.
The Figbt to Be Continued.
However, the real' Democrats of the
senate ire not through with -this sugar
bill yet. It will be called up axain, and,
Willie the game fate may await their

Diiluth Lau^liM at the < oloin-I.
The Duluthians,who have been watch
ing Col. Kiefer's movements in behalf
of a canal to connect Lake Superior with
the Mississippi, are retailing an unoffi
cial report which they received from one
of the engineers on the survey with a
great deal of amusement. This report
is to the effect that the cost of the canal
projected by tike gallant colonel will
be at the lowest estimate $00,000,000.
Of course, this is a mere bagatelle to
Republican financiers; but at the same
time the fact that the estimates show
that the Nicaragua canal can be con
structed for the HUM amount, and that
congress is rather slow about going into
that project, will, serve to indicate the
seriousness of the colonel's plan.
Some or the Duluth people hay»
formed a wrong impression of the ami
able member from St. Paul. T.«nave
pictured him as a bold man, and actual
ly say that he wants to move the Du
luth harbor down to HI. Paul. But this
is Dot true. The colonel is amiability
itself, and he would not rob the Zenith
City of a single whaleback if he could.
l>avi« and Baldwin.
"Why does lie not amend the bill in
the senate, if it is not satisfactory in its
present form?"
Thus answered Maj. Baldwin when
he was told that Senator Davis had an
nounced that he will oppose the Chip
pewa biil until there is no question
about the state's position as to sections
10 and 96 in each township.
"11 the bill is not right," continued
the major, "1 am willing to accept any
amendment, only so the opening can be
commenced at once. This is of the
create*! importance to Duluth, the Twin
Cities, and, in fact, the entire state. I
cannot see that there is anything to be
gained by sitting down and waiting un
til the entire reservation has been sur
veyed and estimated and the govern
ment opens tbe reservation under the
Nelson bill. If there is any question of
this importance to be settled, let us
settle it now while there is time. I do
not believ« there is any di fficuity or
danger of the kind, but If there is 1 sub
mit that this is the time for its settle
ment. If tbe thing drags along for four
years, the seat of Senator Davis may be
filled by some one iess solicitous about
the matter."
"Of course," continued the major,
"the fact that several railroads with
unfilled land grants are now selecting
and examining lands on the surveyed
and estimated portions of the Bed Lake
reservation witU which to fill their
grants would seem to indicate that the
attorneys of those corporations have no
doubts un this subject at all; and, inas
much as they can secure do lands that
do nut first oome to the state of Minne
sota, 1 tliink that Senator Davis ought
to feel easy on the matter.'?
Tawney, MeCleary, Fletcher and
KieTer and income lax.
Special to the Globe.
Washington", Dec. 17.—The Repub
licans have been very fond of donounc- 1
ing t!ie income tax In newspapers, and*
occasionally in speeches, but when it
comes to voting in congress the mem
bers of that party are chary of going on
record against it. An attempt was
made to practically repeal the law by
refusing to vote the money necessary to.
set the machinery going. The Demo
crats from New York city and the Re
publicans from New England made
vigorous speeches denouncing the act,
but when the roil was called only 50
members voted to refuse the appropria
tion, while 172 voted to collect the tax.
Of the 50 members who voted to annul
the law, no less than 37 were Republic
ans, while only 13 New York and New
England Democrats so recorded them
Only one Western Republican voted
with the foes of the income tax, Gear.
of lowa, while Pickler, Lucas and
Johnson, Republicans; from the Da
kotas, voted to appropriate the money
needed to set the law fn motion.
Five Did Not Answer.
But there were only two votes cast by
Minnesota's seven members in favor of
carrying out the income tax statute.
These were cast by Ma]. Baldwin and
Congressman Hall, the two Democratic
members. The other live member* from
the North Star state, although preeeut,
utvgiected to goon record either for dr.
against the bill, and all of them neg
lected to secure pairs.
'I here is no doubt that the Repub
licans wtll attempt to repeal the income
tax in case they are given control two
years hence, which fact explains the at
titude of many Republican members
who failed to record themselves on the
bill last Thursday. The Republican's
who voted to carry out the law, as did
Maj. Tickler and Congressman John
son, have committed themselves to this
method of taxation; while the four Re
publicans from .Minnesota, who dodged
this vote, will be free to vote as they
please when the question comes up.
Had they voted for the enforcement of
the law they would be committed
atrainst its repeal, and if they had voted
with the representatives of wealth that
desires to evade taxation, the people of
their districts might be inclined to send
some one else in '96, or, at least, Imve
given new instructions.
It was a good time for the Western
representative with Eastern sentiments
to sit still in his seat while the other
fellows passed the bill.

The Fair Plaintiff Closes Her
Testimony in the Saul
paugh Case.
And Then Said He Was Sorry,
but Would Marry Her
They Will Attempt to Prove
There Was No Promise
of Marriage.
Special to the Globe
Mjuikato, Minn., Dec. 17.—District
court convened this forenoon at 11
o'clock, and the case of Stein vs. .Saul
paugli was taken up. About 11 o'clock
the court house was crowded, as usual,
and the plaintiff, Miss Stein, looked
somewhat refreshed over a Sunday's
rest. She was put on the stand and
cross-examined as to frequent visits to
Mankato. and testified to occupying the
same quarters with Saulpaugh on sev
eral occasions. In redirect examination
she said Saulpaugli came to see her in
St. Paul almost every day, and hor
friends, who knew something of their
engagement, named her Mrs. Saul
paiijfh. She says Saulpaugh became
proprietor of the Saulpauirh house in
August, 1893.
lv narrating the marriage promise
she cited one visit to Saulpaugh in which
he addressed her thus:
"Totftsie, ««o to Chicago
and get a house. I'll sell tue hotel and
come to Chicago and marry you." She
said: "1 spoke to Saulpaugh about send
ing Mr. Smiih to me. and when he came
to see tue Monday Morning 1 was in beu
and he came in, put liis arms around
my neck and said he was sorry he
sent Mr. Smith to me, but that he was
going to marry me yet.' \V. U. Geddes,
attorney at law, and Judge I'errey testi
fied that Siiilpaugli's reputed wealth at
the time of his lather's death was trom
£130,000 to §150,000. This concluded
Miss Stein's testimony and all
for the plaintiff. This afternoon the
attendance was weakened some. B. D.
Smith, of this city, Saulpaugh's local
attorney, opened tne case for the de
fense, beginning at the time of the in
troduction of the plaintiff to the de
fendant. He said Miss Stein and Saul
paugh were at Chicago, Minneapolis
and St. Paul, during which time the
woman had become aware of Saul-
T>augh's financial standing. The parties
met in Minneapolis during the summer
of 18881, where they
Took Rooms Toscethor,
and this woman then became mistress of
the defendaut. She had lived in Minne
apolis but a short time when she heard
of the building of the Saulpaugn hotel,
and made up her mind that she would
like to be near Saulpaujrh as well
as housekeeper of the hotel. She
promised the defendant, as an induce
ment, to become a better woman, and
promised to lead a better life. He said
it would be shown that there never was
a promise of marriage between the
parties. He admitted that the defend
ant had written some very foolish letters
to plaintiff. "We are prepared to show
her a disreputable woman,the keeper of
a house of ill-fame and mistress of man,
and unfit to be the wife of any man.
This woman promised, when Saulpauijh
began keeping her. that she would lead
a better life. We shall show that she
confirmed her disreputable couduct
up to the day of tha com
mencement of this suit, and
that even while at St. Paul
sho was the keeper of a house of ill
fame and associate of people of low
character. We will show where this
woman has frequented wine rooms,with
men silting on her lap and with recK
less disregard for the position of her
attire. It will be in evidence wnere she
has told St. Paul hack drivers and po
licemeu to keep this and that disgrace
lul affair quiet, and not let her Mankato
man know anythiug about it." Theu
commenced the introduction of deposi
tions, followed by David j. Cook, sheriff
of Denver, who had a deposition refer
ring to her bad character while there.
Other depositions will follow tomorrow.

Two of a Kind Arraigned Be
fore the Bar of Jus
Blixt Pleads Not Guilty and
Will Be Tried on
Jan. 7.
He Will Make His Plea Before
Judge Hicks Next Satur
Claus A. Blixt was arraiened in the
criminal court before Judgo Hicks yes
terday forenoon to plead to the chartre
of murder in the first degree. There
was a lar^e crowd present in the court
room, and by no means were the women
in the minority. They appeared to have
some morbid desire to gaze upon the
features of the man who murdered the
channiutr member of their sex, Cather
ine Gin^. They watched his repulsive
faci\ and nuns upon every word ho
uttered. He was brought into court by
Sheriff Esje, and R. 11. Odell appeared
as his attorney.
Mr. Odeli entered a
riea ot Not Guilty
for his wretched client. Blixt did not
appear to understand what was troin=j
on. sojudee Hicks looked inquiringly
at him. County Attorney Nye asked
him If he realized that he was pleading
not guilty, the plea, in the face of all
his confessions, appearing to the lawyer
almost absurd.
" l"es,' r !e^pollded B!ix f, keepine his
eyes on the floor, "i rully understand."'
He was then led back to his seat.
Mr. Udell asked to have the trial set
for Jan. '25, declaring that ne cou!d not
'set ready before that time. County At
torney Nye stated to the court that in
his opinion the man outrht to be tried us
soon as possible, and then Mr. Odell
delivered himself of an eloquent plea
for his elien* statin; that it would !>.•
the height of injustice to set the ease
for an early d.ite.
Judire Hicks, in bis usual manner,
remarked that the attorney's words
were very high-sounding, but he could
see no reason why a date later than
Jan. 7 should be fixed upon. He accord
ingly fixed upon that date, and Mr.
Odell replied sarcastically that he was
delighted to thrutc the court approved of
his words.
Joun Blixt, the murderer's father, and
Andrew blixt, bis brother, were present
in the court room and sat by the side of
the miserable man. They appeared to
feel their position keenly. Their home
is in Cannon Falls, and they are the
ones who retained and will pay Mr.
Udell for defending the case. It is said
they hope to get Claus off with ,\ life
The cases asraiust Harry Hayward
and Adry Hayward were called durinz
the morning session of the municipal
court. Attorney JBeardsley, of tne
county attorney's office, moved to have
the cases dismissed, inasmuch as the
grand jury had taken action in the
premises, and this was done.
Harry Hayward Arraign*l*!.
At 5 o'clock in the afternoon Harry
Hay ward was arraigned in the same
court before Judge Hicks. Between 3
and 4 o'clock Sheriff E<je, with Deputies
S'.rois and Maish, appeared at the Ram
sey county jail and called for the pris
oner, who has been there for the last
nine days. He was taken out and seated
in a barber's chair, where he had a
shave. A lunch followed, and then the
cars, which brought them to within two
blocks of the court house,were boarded.
The trip was totally without incident,
and a few moments before 5 o'clock the
sheriff and Harry Hay ward went up the
broad stairs leading to the court room,
which, but a few hours before, the sher
iff had climbed with Blixt. The con
ditions were reversed, however. While
Blixt was a poor, ignorant tool, trem
bling at the probabilities of the out
come, Harry Hay ward was the personi
fication of splendid nerve.
Together the two men entered the
room in which a few who had been
watching for the incident had slathered.
The clerk and the court, who had not
expected the arraignment before half
past 5, were sent for. County Attorney
Frank Nye joined the little group,
which went over to the court room, and
\V. K. Hale, who represented the ac
cused, entered the room at the same
Judge Hicks took his seat on the
bench, and there was a moment of in
tense; silence. -Immediately Hayward
and the sheriff arose, and tlie two
stepped up to the desk, the prisoner's
body swinging slightly, as if. from as
surance, in appearance he looked the
polished eentleman. He had laid aside
his overcoat, and was dressed in a black
cutaway suit of irreproachable fit and
make. Ilia face was ruddy with health,
and there was not the slightest indica
tion of anything approaching hesitation
or nervousness.
The clerk, R. C. Royce, spoke a mo
ment with the court who nodded an
assont, and then the * read in st of the
dreadful document commenced.
"You have been Indicted under the
name of Harry T. flayward. Is that
your true name." asked the clerk.
I he prisoner answered with a nod.
"Is that your name?" repeated the
court, who did not see the nod and
looked up for a:i answer.
"Yes,sir," crime, the answer fn ■ quiet
manner. Then followed the reading of
the Indictment, it was divided into two
counts. The first count charged Hay
ward with bavins* committed the mur

mittinjj of the deed to Hayward him
Hayward was a study as the reading
was aoin<r on. He looked around the
room with a seernmely careless gaze,
but that lie \va« not actually as much at
ease as he seemed was shown by the
heavinj*of asigh which, while almost
inaudible in the room, was painfully ap
parent from the rise and fall of the
chest. After that he changed MsposU
tion, leaning on the desk with his left
elbow. He looked at the reporter witb
a straight, unfiinchinj: gaze, placed on«
band on bis hip, and stroked Us chin
with tnc other. An instant later hi»
gaze strayed back toward the people iv
the room.
liy his side stood W. E. Hale, his at
torney, watchful and alert, listening t«
the reading with careful attention.
Harry's hand began toyiii- with Hie

watch chain when the clerk reached the
names of the witnesses examined by the
erand jury: William Ernart and tin
brother, Dm. Spring and Nippert, T.
Connelly Jr., the two Coosmans, Mayor
Eustis, A dry A. Hayward and Officer
Tom Fox.
"What is your plea." he continued,
"guilty or not guilty?"'
Before Hay ward had an opportunity
to answer. Mr. Hale spoke up:

"Nothing further that I know of."

Back to Jail Axain.
While this little formality had been
coins on, Harry Hay ward had turned
back to his seat, where the sheriff helped
him on with bis overcoat. He talked a
moacent with his attorney, and then
with the sheriff passed down the staira
once more. The two deputies were im
mediately behind then:, and. accom
panied by a half-dozen onlookers, they
found their way across the street and
down to the jail. Across the street
two little urchins scurried along to
catch a iilimuse of the accused as he dis
appeared in the d"or.
Within tile office he was conducted to
the jail proper. Here Sheriff Eire took
him to the door of tile cell room, where
Jailor Curtis* had a little trouble un
locking the big padlocK which bold* the
prisoners safe within the prison walls.
The little alleyway was crowded full o!
men, four of them behig; deputies. At
length the door swim* open and Hay.
ward entered. His. little imp was in h\s
hand. The sheriff indicated the direc
tion in which he was to go.andlieujanun
Eije conducted him to his cell in the
second tier of the big case.
A moment later aad the nr^h-looked
at man disappeared from view, and th«
jail resumed its wonted aspect. A
peculinr thing about the arraignment 1:
that it was the first time that County
Attorney Nye had ever seen tl.e pris.
oner. Although he had seen the othel
participants in the terrible traced}-,
Harry's face he bad not seen. It is un
derstood that Harry Hayward will re
main here from this timeou until the
triai of the case is ended.
I'lau of Defense.
Mr. Qdell is not averse to discussing
his plan of Biixt's defense. He stated
yesterday, with perfect willing™
the ease would be pushed to tue very
limit, and:
"We shall prove that Blixt was en
tirely under tne influence of this man
Hay ward, and that, at the time of com
mitting this crime, he was irresponsible.
It will be shown in the evidence that all
through the preliminaries to this mur
der Blixt steadily refused to have any
thing to do with it, and endeavored by
every means in his power to avoid Hay
ward, lie was engineer of the flats!
though, and could not leave his position
there without withdrawing the support
he owed his family. In addition to this,
he was in mortal terror of the supposed
hold llayward had secured «v him in
connection with the barn-burning ailair.
"The defense will include the testi
mony of tuauy well-known physicians
as to the state of Bllxt's mind at the
time cf the murder. He has described
the sensations he experienced after
drinking the maddening decoction
given him by Llayward on the night of
the crime. That bottle contained a
combination of whisky and uitro-glyc
eriue,and its effect was t^> crazo the fel
low. He started out with Miss (iinic.isi
tending to set out of the buggy and
leave her. but the influence ol Hay
ward's commauda was strong in nil
mind. Then Miss Cling was suspicious,
and nothing has been brought out yes
to show what occurred in the buggy be-«
fore the shooting. The crime was com
mitted by a totally irresponsible per«
son, and the testimony to be heard for
the defense will show to what extent a.
man can be rendered irresponsible—l
mean a man of Blixl's mentality—when
