■which is almost without parallel, and
In spite of it a production exceeding
that of any year prior to 1889." This
increase, . in connection with the fact
that there were fewer furnaces in
. blast, it says,- is due to the great im
provements made in the methods of
production; in "the substitution of
powerful and economical furnaces,"
and to the "use of new and improved
machinery." The comparative meth
od leads us to the conclusion that this
editorial .was not written by the politi
cal writer of the paper, and must
have escaped his eye. He would not
have let so absurd a reason be given
for the increase, but would have
promptly and emphatically declared
that it was due to the defeat of the
I Democrats in 1894. The political cdi-
tors of. Republican papers should be

their weather eye open and on the

Declares the Power of Capital

SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 2.— Gov.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 2— Gov.
John P. Altgeld is of the belief that
the United States supreme court. has
established a dangerous precedent in
remanding Eugene V. Debs and his
friends to jail. He expressed himself
in a very caustic manner today re
garding the decision; accuses the court
of trampling on the right of the people
and being a tool of monopolies. He
gives his views for publication in a
signed article, in which he says in
part: "This decision marks a turning
point in our history, for it establishes a
new form of government never before
heard of among men, that is, y
"The provision of the constitution
'that no man shall be deprived of his
liberty without a trial by an impartial
jury,' is practically wiped out by thi3
decision of the United States supreme
court, and the theory that : ours ' was
exclusively a government of law \is
now at an end, for every man in the
community is now subject to any whim
or caprice which any federal judge may
promulgate, and if federal judges can
do this then it will not be long until
state judges will follow their example.
"For over a century our government
moved along the. lines of the consti
tution, and we became great and pow
—life and property were-protect
ed, and the- law was enforced. Nov/
we have made a departure; the bul
wark of liberty has been undermined;
trial by jury has been stricken down.
"For a number of years it has been
remarked that ' the decision's .of the
United States courts were nearly al
ways in favor of corporations. Then it
was noticed that no man could be ap
pointed to federal judgeship unless he
was satisfactory to those interests.
Over a year ago the New York World
talked about a packed supreme court,
and that court has within a few days
rendered two ' decisions which", unfor
tunately tend to confirm this charge.
A week ago it did violence to the con
stitution and laws of the land by hold
ing that the government had no power
to tax the rich of this country. Now
it has stricken down trial by jury,
and has established 'government by
injunction.' y'-S ySyJ'.ylySSi
"Forty years ago the slave power
predominated; today it is capitalism.
The American people crushed the
slave power and saved our institutions.
Can they rescue them ; again? Many
say yes, but they have not reflected
that the crushing force which now
confronts them is greater than was
ever the slave power. Capital sits in
the White house and legislates- in the
capitol. Courts of justice are its min
isters, and legislatures are its lackeys.
And the whole machinery of fashion
able society is its handmaid. Just
see what a brood of evils have sprung
up since 1870 from the

lowa Mnn Says Hawaiian Repub-
. lie Is Tattering. -'ly'll
7 OMAHA, Neb., June 2.— Mayor
Mortimer Higley, of Cedar Rapids, 10.,
is en route from Hawaii. Higley is an
intimate friend of President Dole and
has been in the republic some time
i and asserts that the life of the present
1 administration Is very limited unless
some of the powers come to its rescue.
He Bays: 7 SSyIS
■ "They have a thoroughly organized
republic in every part, but the more
"intelligent class realize that it is a
provisional one, -necessarily. The sen-
timent in favor of . annexation is .
strong. The most. kindly feelings are
cherished toward the United States
among the natives as well as the rest
of tire population. I . predict that if
the United States does not annex the
islands Japan will. You know what
the effect of the late war was on
Japan. It made her jubilant and self--1
confident. -She has 40,000 citizens in the
island who have settled there, besides
the Japanese are restless under the
Hawaiian government because ■ the
government does not allow the Orien
tals to ; participate in public affairs.
The balance of the population, how-?
ever, are allowed to vote, with some'
property. and educational limitations.
"Yes, I think that if the United
States does not take control of those
Islands during the course "of the next
administration Japan will. But .1
think the Hawaiians realize the com-
plexity of the problem and are in fa
vor of coming in as : a territory, and
not as a state. President Dole, of the.
republic, told me - that he is in favor
of annexation, for the republic must
have the support of a strong power,
and many of the most prominent royal-;
ists are also, including Cummings," the
leader of the rebellion,* who is now un-
der $30,000 bonds, and the English
guardian .of Princess Kaiulanl, ; who
has I been a pronounced royalist, has
lately expressed himself to the effect
that annexation is the only salvation
for | the islands. In the [ United States
we have many Hawaiian exiles. They .'„
are unanimously in favor of annexa
tion, as it would result in the restora
tion of their, rights."

:. Brute to a Tree, but Finally
Spare His Life.
"Hang him!"
"Beat the hound to death with a
7 "No, let's hang him, that's the best
"Well, get a rope then and be quick
about it; five minutes is too long for
him to live."
In the gray light of the early morn-
ing a frightened negro cowered before
a crowd of resolute men. They were'
wild with anger. He trembled like a
leaf, and between his gasps for breath
implored his captors to be merciful.
Their answer .was a burst of righteous
wrath. He threw his black hands be
fore his face fearful of their vengeance.
And when one of the crowd appeared
n the doorway with a long rope in his
hands the negro dropped to his knees
and begged for mercy. It was in vain.
In an instant the noose was made and
slipped about his neck. .He was
dragged to a large tree in the yard
and the rope was thrown over a stout
limb. Willing hands grasped the
long line and a minute more and the
negro was dangling in the air. At
that instant a frightened woman is-
sued from the house and, falling to her
knees, Implored the men to do nothing
so rash. Her entreaties prevailed.
-Reluctantly the rope slackened and
the burden at the other end slipped
slowly to the ground/while the short,
panting - gasps :of the negro told how
near he had been to death.: Hurriedly
his hands .were ••
and 'before the sun had made its ap
pearance in the tast he was marched
down the roadway from Lexington
. ; avenue > and lodged in ■ a strong cell - in
'the, Rondo street sub-police * station.
:': It was a singular and most excit-
ing Sunday morning 1 scene in which
the residents in the immediate vicinity
of Iglehart street and Lexington aye-
nue participated. Half an hour before
the occurrence related above, the
daring negro had climbed in the win-
dow of a little cottage, 1095,Iglehart,
in which slept Maggie,? Frieda and
Katharine Ketchell. His object was
criminal assault. He was discovered
in the attempt, and the screams of the
frightened women, who rushed from
the house, aroused their brother, who
slept in the cottage next door. In an
instant he was out, and discovered
the negro in flight. Divining the situ-
ation the brother gave chase, attired
only in his night shirt. On his way
he was joined by a cowboy and others
who were abroad, and after one of
the most exciting and remarkable
[ chases for a man that ever occurred,
the negro was captured and brought
back to the scene of his intended
crime. Here, in the presence of all,
he was strung up to the big tree In the
yard of the brother's house, and had
it not been for the entreaties of the
women, he would now.be a corpse.
It all happened so quickly and the
people were so thoroughly aroused
that hours passed before they be-
came sufficiently composed to relate
the story, which is a most thrilling
and . remarkable one. Even yester
day afternoon, when the Globe re
porter called at the little house on the
: corner of Iglehart street and Lex
ington avenue, the young women still
trembled in the memory of the most
of their lives. A cowboy, three milk
men, the brother of the girls, a neigh
bor and a brother-in-law all took part
in the race after the negro, but It was
Ketchell, the athletic young - brother
of the girls, who finally captured the
negro and conquered him after a long
and stubborn struggle in the open fields
near j Kittsondale. Twice he '. had ; the
negro down, and twice the wiry scoun
drel slipped from his grasp and re-
sumed his flight. The third time the
brother was so thoroughly angered
that he - nearly- had the j negro choked
to death when the other men reached
the scene of the struggle. He was
brought back, as related, and expected'
at every footstep to suffer" death. His
captors were more merciful than he,
however, and to their humanity he
owes his life. 7 When lodged in his
cell at the station he admitted his ob-
ject, and stoutly denied that there had
been murder in his" heart. To look at
him no one would Imagine he would
care much whether he committed a
murder or not. 7 ~He gave his name as
Huston Osborne, admitted . having
served time ; in ,: prison for burglary,
and said that r for the last' two weeks.
he had been an extra waiter at the :
West hotel in Minneapolis. r He simply
lied. The details of the attempted as-:
sault, the flight and the capture fol
low. -'-'.-'-' ■ 7 . - ~*.
The little one-story cottage In .which
the Ketchell girls reside is located : on
the corner of Iglehart and Lexington.
It is a.very.simple affair, one story In
height. Previous to going there, four
weeks ago, they lived with their mother
in the heart of; the city; She died and
they, removed 1. to this 7: little "cottage,
which is owned by their brother-in-law,
Mr. Horst, a brother of ex-City; Treas
urer Charlie Horst, who resides in the
two-story frame next' dOor/about fifty
yards away Three hundred yards
away is a row. of houses, . in the second
of which resides 7A.J M. Thompson of
the firm of Ide & Thompson, who' par
ticipated In ', the chase. ' This ; is a very
lonely part of the city, and is wholly
without police protection. It is nearly
a mile from? the district patrolled by
the Rondo police, and about the same
distance from the district : watched by
the mounted police from Prior avenue.
In the little cottage on the corner the
'three girls 7;. -•? -;'■;-*?: yl
and : a lounge." The - lounge was occu-
pied by Frieda, aged eighteen, '* while
Maggie and Katherine slept in the bed
on the other side of the room. Frieda
on warm nights usually placed the
lounge, near the Window to secure the
benefit of the cool air. It is supposed
the negro was aware of this, as he had
been seen hanging around that part of
the city the two days previous.
—: The girls had retired early. Never
having been disturbed in their slum-
bers they feared no harm. Some time
after y o'clock, when day was Just
breaking, the negro cautiously ap
proached the house. The morning was
peaceful and quiet. Even the dogs had
. not awakened, and the negro's ap
proach was not discovered. Removing
a flower pot which stood on the win-
dow sill he peered within. The steady
breathing of the inmates assured him
that all was well. Again peering cau
tiously around, he raised himself on
an inverted flower pot and threw his
arms over the sill. A distant shout
caused him to raise his head and lis-
ten. It was the voice of McMenemy's
cowboy in the field some distance
away," who afterwards proved an Im
portant factor in the chase. Again the
negro raised himself on the window,
and a moment later drew himself in-
side. As he approached the lounge oc
cupied by Frieda the girl awoke and
stared into the black face of the
marauder just above her.
Frieda was almost paralyzed with
fright, but retained her composure
sufficiently to ask:
"Why, what are you doing there?"
The negro's only reply 'was to place
his hand over, the girl's mouth and hiss
into her ear a command for silence.
The girl, -with one desperate effort,
wrenched herself free from his grasp
and screamed with all the strength of
her lungs. Her sisters awoke on the
instant, and, springing from her bed,
Maggie ran towards Frieda. The ne
gro anticipated her. and, grasping her
by the throat, threw her down and
knelt on her prostrate form, still re-
taining his grip on her throat. The
other two girls ran wildly from the
house screaming with all their might.
The screams awoke Anton Ketchell,
the brother, who was sleeping in
and without waiting to put on any ex-
tra clothes he ran into the yard in
time to discover the negro issuing
from the front door of the cottage and
making , away, across the road In a
northwesterly direction. Instantly di-
vining. the situation, Anton gave chase.
Horst,' who had waited to pull on a
pair of .trousers, followed rapidly In
his rear. Over the road and into the
green pasture beyond sped the negro
with the speed of a deer. Anton was
less than . 200 yards behind him, and
his skill as an athlete now stood him in
good stead. Down into the hollow near
the approach to Kittsondale ran the
negro, never ', faltering, never .-. stumb-
ling, while Anton, in his bare feet, trod
on - sticks '£ and*~fag»^ and stone,-? but
never/slackened his pace. Fences
sprung up-hr-tho path- of the negro,
and as he ran : he threw aside two
coats in order not to be hampered
when getting 7 through the fences. This
delayed him a trifle and Anton gained.
Being without clothes Anton" had no
difficulty in getting through the
fences, and in this way he gained on
the negro step -by step". For half a
mile straightaway the chase went on.
At this point a crowd of milkmen and
the young cowboy referred to caught
sight of the mad race across the fields
and heard the excited yells of Horst,
who was following hard after. Anton..
The cowboy Instantly saw the situa
tion, and' putting spurs to his broncho
shot off in the direction of the flying
negro to head him off. With the
speed of a rocket the broncho sailed
over the open prairie. The cowboy
caught the fever of the chase and
urged his steed on to greater effort.
The negro was making for a clump of
underbrush near the Kittsondale track
and once through it .might have
escaped. But the broncho was fleeter,
and soon stood panting in the path of
the wily negro. Seeing his escape cut
off the negro turned and doubled back
on his trail, while the cowboy sailed
after him. to ride him down. Ketchell
had taken advantage of the sudden
turri of affairs, however, and cutting
across the field in a slanting direction,
came upon the frightened negro, and
leaping on ; his back . threw both arms
-around his neck. The negro.had a big
rock in his hand, and twice -rapped
Anton over . the head, but failed to
stun him. Anton was like an enraged
tiger. He pulled and tugged at his
wiry antagonist and choked him as
well as he could In that position.
the negro broke loose and resumed
his flight. It was now hopeless. The
cowboy was riding him down from the
front and pursuers in the persons of
the? milkmen and Horst were coming
from all sides. ?• He paused, a trifle
alarmed at the outlook. The delay was
fatal. Anton again sprung on his back
and dealt him a severe blow in the
face. It did not worry the negro in the
least. Another - hard struggle ensued,
and again the negro broke away. An-
ton now seemed to have lost his senses
and was like a madman. With a sud
: den? burst of speed, he a third time
caught the fellow and threw him heav
ily- to the ground. This time there was
no escape. Anton wound his strong
fingers about the negro's throat and
planted his knees on his chest. Anton
-threw all his strength into his grip,
. and by the time the others came up
he i had nearly choked the fellow into
insensibility. They dragged him off,
and he relifctantly consented to keep
his hands off. In a half fainting con-
dition, the negro was helped to his
feet, and not very gently, either. He
glared. at his captors, but said noth-
ing. They tied his hands tightly to-
gether with the cowboy's lariat, and,
giving him a good kick, started In
towards the city, Anton following
along in the rear with his 7 scanty
clothing torn to shreds in the fight.
There 7 was no chance for escape.
Thinking that perhaps he might get
away, his captors put the rope about
his neck,", and, like a beef * led -to . the
slaughter, '■ the negro was led back to
the yard of the ; little' cottage. The
neighbors were there to welcome him,
and If looks could have killed he would
have- died a hundred deaths. All sorts
of epithets were hurled at the now
badly; frightened negro, and he trem-
bled , and shook when suddenly Mr.
Thompson cried:
"Get a rope and hang him!" . ..."
The others took up the 'cry. Some one
; ran In the house , for a rope, and ' the
7 most intense excitement reigned. The
: negro: pleaded: for '<■ mercy, but . nothing
but curses were 'heaped upon him. The

Young Lady the First, Victim oi
Old Ocean at Atlantic City. .
The first drowning accident on tho
bathing grounds for over a year oc
curred this afternoon at the foot o£
Illinois avenue. Charles It. Thompson, '
of Cleveland, 0., and Miss Jennie Gro-
gle, aged twenty-one years, of Ninth
and Dickinson streets, Philadelphia,
were in the water. Thompcon took tha
young woman a dangerous . distance
out from the shore, to glvo her swim-
ming lessons. They were aught in a.
whirlpool near the boat jetty, and, be-i
coming separated, cried for help. Thera
were scores of bathers on the strand,
but no one started to the rescue, and
with a despairing cry the girl sank"
beneath the waves/while several thou- '
sand "persons on the board • walk ' and '
the beach looked on. Robert Brady, a
brother of Bathhousekeeper Joseph
Brady, heard the woman's last shriek,
and, throwing off his coat, dashed in
to Thompson's assistance, reaching
him as he was sinking for the last
time. It was a brave rescue, and Brady
is the hero of the hour. M:C3 Grogle's
body has not yet been recovered. She
came here three weeks ago on a visit,
and had expected to return home to-
night. -
Mrs. James Farley, a relative of Miss
Grogle, lodged a complaint against
Thompson tonight, charging him with
criminal negligence in having taken'
the unfortunate young woman too far
out from shore. He was arretted, and:
at the preliminary hearing said thaC
his real name is Crawford, and that he
is not- an expert swimmer. He was
held without bail to await the result
of the Inquest. It was asserted by,
witnesses to the tragedy that It was
the result of the recent building of a
jetty at the point where the drowning
occurred. The presence of tho jetty
has caused the waves to wash a deep
hole In the sand at its outer end. mak-
ing a preclpltlous step-off of great
depth in comparatively shallow water.
