It is probable that the Republicans

Attorney Odell Says He Will
Do That in Blixt's
Demonstrated Yesterday That
It Is a Well Devel
oped Case.
Stopped a Firm's Mail—The
Canal Project—Populists
Hard Up.
Clnus Blixt appears calmer and more
restful than a week ago. His condition
may De attributed to the fact he has
•'experienced religion" and that he is
being buoyed up with the hope that he
svrs never born to suffer the fate of
death on the fallows. The press has
been wont in talking of Blixt to gener
ally describe him as "Murderer" Blixt,
but if Attorney Odell is to be believed,
this is not a fitting appelation to ap
ply to his notorious client. Mr. Odell
Is confident, an.l remarked yesterday
that he would "clear his man.*' He in
sists that his case is not a hopeless one.
"What about Blixl's confessions,"
was asked.
"He j.is made no confessions; all
that he haj said are merely statements
and nothing wore. What he has said
hns been wrung from him, and, as 1
once before remarked to you, it is a
wonder that the man had any brains
left at all after what he was put
through to attempt to elicit information
from him."
"Then in yourown mind you are quite
sure of being: able to clear hint?"'
"As sure as I am sure of anything."
"Do you know of any later develop
ments to the case than are already in the
possession of the public?'' was a ques
tion next put to the attorney.
The only reply that Mr. Odell thought
it necessary to make to this query was
that every day he was adding informa
tion to be usfd in the defense, and all of
it was of a sensational character. There
would be much that was new and had
not yet even been hinted at, but it
would not be known until his client
stood his trial for his neck. Mr. Odell
eentinued: "Some of the city papers
have given what they are pleased to
term •-.u\ outline' of what the defense
will be, but I can intorm you that no
one other than myself knows the first
thing about it; 1 have not told a single
reporter one word of the line of defense,
and do not intend to."
•'lt iias been said that you stated that
Blixt's relatives had been sent out of
the city to Cannon Falls until the time
for trial had arrived. Is thU so?"
"I never said they had been sent out;
they left of their own accord to attend
to business that awaited them there, but
they will return again shortly."
"Will you be ready to go on with the
defense and trial when the case is called
on Jan. 7 next?''
"Yes, I shall be quite ready then, and
have no fear but tliat I shall be able to
clear that poor num."
"There has lately been expressed an
opinion, and a generally prevalent one,
too, that there is sonic one else besides
the three men whose names are promi
nently before the public, who is con
nected with this murder. What is your
opinion about that."
"1 have no opinion to express upon
There Is No Mistake About Ander-
son's Disease.
Health Commissioner Kelley made a
careful examination yesterday moru
ing of Anderson, the small-pox patient,
and decided there was no mistake as to
the nature of the disease. It is a case
of well-developed small-pox, but Dr.
Kelley says there is no danger of its
spreading. lie has taken every precau
tion to prevent it. The lodging house
at 504 llennepin avenue has been under
strict quarantine. Together with mem
bers of his staff.the health commissioner
visited the place and vaccinated all the
lodgers and attacnes. Every room was
then thoroughly fumigated. Fifty-four
men lodged at the house, and must re
main indoors until the quarantine is
Three policemen guard the front of
the place, and there are others watching
their rear exits, so that escape is im
possible. No person is allowed to pass
by the doors, and the result is.the place
is the object of considerable interest.
Sears, Roebuck & Co. in Trouble
Wilh the Postoffiee.
Owing to an order from the postal au
thorities at Washington all registered
letters and money orders addressed to
the wholesale jewelry firm of Sears,
Roebuck & Co. are beins held back by
Postmaster iiolbrook. The order re
quhes the postmasters of this city
and Chicago to continue holding back
this ciass of mail until certaiu charges
can be investigated. The embargo
causes embarrassment and loss to the
firm. It was stated yesterday by mem
bers of the firm that th« order was due
to certain methods practiced by a firm
of similar name in Chicago, which has
no connection with the local house.
A dispatch from Washington yester
day stated that Senator Washburn,
Congressman Fletcher, R. O. Evans and
8. B. Lovejoy were having a conference
with I'oslmaster General Bissell regard
ing the artair. The firm desires to have
the enforcement of the order and the
investigation postponed until after the
holiday trade.
It was stated yesterday that Sears,
Roebuck & Co. will remove" their busi

According to Mr. Spalding, the
Company Is Not in It.
Henry C. Brjaiinnjc. of Qalotb. ap
peared before the members of th*e Com
mercial club last nlgl^t and discussed
yie project of the Minnesota Caual
company fl»d the matter of water
power at Duluth. He is president and
chief engineer of the comp-Uiy, j>»(J 19
fully conversant with the plan of con
necting the lake and the Mississippi by
means of a navigable waterway. He
laid before the club the claims of his
company and those of the Altamonte.
The claims of the latter, he said, are
not substantiated by facts, and the
claim that the St. Louis river can fur
nish a 000,000-horse power is absurd.
Mr. Spalding went on to show that his
company had the most feasible *"',,„
and that it has prior ri K ht= ;,. lan^and

to Mr. Spaldintt, the Altamonte com

with the Minnesota.

Those of Becker County Need
L. Berrler. secretary of the People's
party state bureau, has received a letter
from H. H. Tranker, of Csage, Becker
county, stating that Populists there, as
well as others, are sadly in need of
clothing to protect them from exposure.
Mr. Trauker states that the situation is
so bad that many men, women and
children are actually sick be
cause of a lack of waim cloth
ing, and clothing and under
wear are badly needed. He hopes that
sume of the more well-to-do Populists
in tnis section of the state will help
them out. During the summer they
hauled logs and kept their families
from starving, but now the Weyer
hauser company has got out an injuue
liou and this supply i 9 shut off. They
have foutjht the case in the courts, but
can do nothing against such a powerful
concern. Any one who will send any
thing to Usage should communicate

People Connected With the Ging
Case Talk Too Much.
The people connected with the Gins:
murder case have done so much talking
that there remains but little to be said
in the courts. They have taken to
squabbling among themselves, calling
encli other names and behaving in an
altogether ridiculous manner. Each
appears to be afraid the other will get
more credit and advertising than he
does. Yesterday, in speaking of one of
the gentlemen connected with the case,
Attorney W. W. Erwin said:
"He has made a d—n ass of himself."
The newspapers have been interview
ing R. R. Odell, attorney for Blixt. Ac
cording to his statement they have mis
represented him. Yesterday he sent
the following letter to Sheriff Ege:

Judge Shaw, In opposing the motion,
quoted largely from numerous books,
some fifty or more of them being at

The argument was based mainly on the
hypothesis that the incorrect answers,
while perhaps not in strict accoruance
with facts, still wen; made in good
faith, and as such did not debar the
beneficiaries from profit under the pol

while perhaps untrue in a point of
strict adherence to the facts, still were
honest, and as such not fraudulent.

the motion, Mr. Hams said that lie had
been informed of serious charges
against Mr. Clark, which he thought
should be investigated wliile there was
yet an opportunity. This opportunity
was found in tlie fact that the time for

will hand over the documents to the
chairmau. Senator Pugh, tomorrow.
The Tennessee members speak in the
Highest terms of Mr. dark. It is re
ported that the charge Is that the firm
of which he was a member accepted
fees on both sides of a case.
Charges Brought by a New York
Chattaxoooa. Term., Dec. 20.—The
charges communicated to Senator Har
ris against Charles D. Clark, appointed
to succeed D. M. Key as United States
judge for the east and middle district of
Tennessee, come from W. G. McAdoo, a
young man in the brokerage business
in New York, who formerly resided iv
this city and was associated with J. U.
Barring to the practice of law.
The charges are that Mr. Clark's law
firm (Clark & Brown) accepted employ
ment from parties havine conflicting in
terests in the foreclosure proceedings
against the Chattanooga Union Railway
company. Judge D. M. Key, tho retir
ing judge and ex-postmaster general,
says he is entirely familiar with this
suit, which is iv his court, ami that
there is nothing improper In the position
or action of any attorney iv it, and has
so wired Senator Harris.
Henry O. Evving, the master in chan
cery, says he is acting for them. Mr.
.Ewing has so wired Senator Harris.
Mr. Brown, Mr. Clark's partner, says
that he is responsible for everything
done by his firm in this case, and that
he is willing to stand by "that record;
that he has just finished a race for con
gress, being elected by 3.000 plurality in
a district which gave Cleveland £000
in 1892. The record in this race was
open to every one during his canvass.
James Bibio, United States attorney of
this city, who was strongly for Gov.
Porter :or district judge, is familiar
with the record, and when interviewed
stated that any charge against Judge
ClarK growing out of the Union railway
litigation was a dirty outrage.
"Judge Clark,;! said Mr. Biblo,
"stands as high as any man in the state
of Tennessee, and any reflection upon
his integrity or professional reputation
does violence to what his neighbors
know to be true."
J. B. Barr, the law partner of Mc-
Adoo, and who is conducting tho case,
has telegraphed Senator Harris that
Judge Clark has done nothing unpro
fessional In the case, and aaks his con
firmation. Mr. Barr was among those
who asked the president to appoint
It is thought here that Senator Harris
asked reconsideration to give amule
time to investigate the charges for fear
it might be said the haste in which the
confirmation was obtained was iuleuded
to avoid any charged.
Defects in the Currency Bill Rec
Washington, Dec. 20.—A confer
ence was held at the treasury depart
ment between Secretary Carlisle and
Chairman Springer, of the house com
mittee on banking and currency, rela
tive to amending the Carlisle currency
bill, now before the house. The sub
ject \va3 gone over fully, and as a re
-Bul of the talk, Mr^SprjnKer will pro
pose a number of aTpe^darfcijts designed
to remove some of tfje objfctfonjf ad
vanced against the bill. One objec
tion is that under section 7
sonio banks may be permitted to
take a circulation of 90 per cent of their
capital stock, while the bill limits clr
sulation to 75 per cent of the capital
stock. 'f his would be remedied by re
quiring the excess, if any, to be retired
of deposit of gre^nbacks under exist
ing provisions of . law*. The time In
which the baiiltj will be required to
comply with the new law may be ex
tended for two years, and the house
may fix, by amendment, the umo at a
more remote uafe. The bill will
be so framed as to make it
clear Uiat tfie bill-holders of na
tional bank Jiptes will bo protected
during the tlOJe tliO <Jtd onoks are con
forming to the new law. Another
amendment will provide that tho gov
ernment will receive the old notes for
internal taxes and cancel them and issue
notes under the new law. It is possible
that these and other amendments that
the Democratic majority of the banking
committee may asrree upon tnay bo em
braced in a substltuta which can be pre
sented before Hie five-minute debate
begins. . . ,•*,■ - ; .
; Such a substitute, embodying all
amendments and improvements sug
gested by ttio debate, l» thought to be
more desirable than having the original
bill pMened fr'sm end to end with
nfiraiWifieiilS. ■*■-*- «=*;: • •■- '
Tjuft<sp??r'cyce did not bring out any
con?iaofaUon or the important aine"rid
ijicuts vvhjch Jutye b,e.eu urged, on the
flnoTof the house, viz.: The issue of
bonds to retire outstanding greenbacks;
the elimination of state banks mid the
limiting of a bank's liability for the
losses to other banks to 1 per cent. As
to a bond issue to retire the greenbacks,
the i>pri'.iger bill is offered as an amend
ment, but it is believed the feeling
against bond issues will defeat the
amendment. The elimination of state
banks and the limiting of liability will
also be presented as independent
amendments. The house committee on
rul*?s did not meet today, and no fur
ther steps have been taken or conteiu
plated for a special rule to ciuac debate
the Carlisle bill.
BUI .front ing It .waits the Presi-
dent's .Signature.
Washington,. Dec. 20. — The bill
creating a national military park out of
the battlefield of JShilon has passed
both houses and only awaits the presi
dent's signature to become a law. The
bill as it pa»cd the senate yesterday,
appropriated $75,000, and provided for a
park of 3.000 acres. It authorizes the
secretary of war to acquiru possession
of the land included in the proposed
limits either by condemnation or other
wise, but provides that present occu
pants may, under an arrangement with
the secretary, remain upon their prem
ises, in which ease they are to protect
all landmarks, eitner now existing or to
be hereafter created. The park is to be
in charge of three commissioners, one
of whom shall have served in the
army of the Tennessee, under Gen.
Grant, another in the army of Ohio,
under Gen. liuell, and the third in the
army of the Mississippi, under Gen. A.
S. Johnson. The general purpose of
the bill is set forth in the first section,
and is declared to be the preservation
on the ground where they fought of the
history of one of the memorable battles
of the armies of the Southwest, as has
been done for the armies of the East at
Gettysburg, and for those of the Central
V\ est at Chickamauga.
Rumor That Minister Breekin-
ridge Will Keslgn.
Washington, Dec. 20.—The report
that C. B. Breckinridge would resign
his place as minister to Russia cannot
be confirmed among those most intimate
with him. His cousin, W. C. P. Breck
inridge, of Kentucky, had not heard of
such action, and doubted its correct
Representative Terry, of Little Rock,
Ark., whence came the report, says he
does not believe it. tie 6ays. however,
that Mr. Breckinridge has found ths
expenses of a diplomatic establishment
at St. Petersburg very heavy. Jt- is
probable that the report came from this.
Chahman Wilson, of the ways aud
means committee, emphatically discred
its the report that Mr. Breckinridge will
tesign tiom his position as minister to
Russia. Mr. Wilson received a letter
from Mr. Breckinridge only a few days
ago, in which no reference was made of
any intention to resign.
Joseph Cabell Breckinridge. brother
of Clifton R. Breckiiuidge, United
States minister to Russia, is in the city.
He expresses great surprise at the
rumor printed that his brother intended
to resign his ministry. "1 have heard
nothiiijt whatever about it," said he,
"and do not believe it is» true. I should
almost certainly know of it if ho had
any such intention."
House and Senate Have a Light
Legislative Day.
Washington, Dec. 20.—The debate
on the currency bill was comparatively
brief in the house today, owing to the
exercises in connection with the accept
ance of the statues of Webster and
Stark. Messrs. Sperry, of Connecticut,
a Democratic member of the banking
and currency committee, and Bros-
Bius, of Pennsylvania, a Republican
member, championed and opposed the
measure respectively. The former was
opposed to various features of the bill,
but declared his intention of voting for
it if nothing better could be secured.
Representative McCreary, from the
committee on foreign affairs, today re
ported favorably the resolution of Rep
resentative Blair, calling on the presi^
dent for the Japau-Chimi correspond
The speaker laid the Bering sea cor
rrspoudenco before the. house, and then,
at 5:30 p. m.. the house adjourned.
In the senate today the only legisla
tive business of any importance trans
acted was the passage or a bill making
deficiency appropriations for the census
bureau and the department of justice
for the current fiscal year. The senate
adjourned until Saturday.

Washington, Dec. 20. —Senator
Davis must now fish or cut bait as re
eards the Uuldwln-Chippewa bill. The
St. Paul senator has so far held up this
measure in the senate on the ground
that it does not clearly acknowledge the
light of the state to seciions sixteen and
