yesterday from a two weeks' trip on
lakes. He arrived at Duluth Monday
night on the steamer Peerless, and
had to hurry to catch the Duluth

way, and fell from the nier into the
lake. He sank twice, and was caught
by the coat and saved by a bystander
as he was going down for "the last
time. Mr. Overmier says, aside from
the fright and the terrible chilling he
got. in the cold lake water, he feels all
right, and is thankful to be able to re
turn to his duties in the bank.

frightened the horse. The horse ran
into Mr. Kerrick's buggy, also cross-

knocked him out of his buggy, be-
sides breaking a wheel and one of
the thills.

Committee of Seventy Takes Ac-
tion School Commissioners
Consider Sites.
Harry Hayward intends to fight
the suit brought by ex-Mayor Eustis
for his client, Julia Ging, adminis
tratrix of the estate of Katherine
Ging. This was indicated yesterday
afternoon, when he had a long con
ference with S. A. Reed, the attor
ney who will represent him in the
action. * 77 7 -
Mr. Reed was instructed, it is
claimed, to draw up the answer to
the complaint immediately, and he
will probably begin work at once.
The general allegations of fraud,
which were set forth in the com
plaint so liberally, will be denied,
and an effort will be made to show
that the transaction by means of
which Hayward secured the assign
ment of the $10,000 in life insurance
policies was perfectly straight.
If Hayward lives to make the
fight as intended it is probable that
much of the ground gone over in the
criminal action will be gone over
again, but new light in the shape of
evidence showing the business re
lation of Miss Ging and her mur
derer will be brought out under the
civil case. It is understood that the
attorneys will make an effort to
crowd the case up to an early place
on the calendar, and in the event
Hayward should be executed before
the case came to trial, his executors
would continue the fight. *
First Concerted Work Done in the
' Matter.
The committee of seventy appointed
for the purpose of working for the
erection of the proposed Ole Bull
statue held yesterday afternoon its
first meeting in the New York Life
building library. ' Some twenty-five
members were present. Among them
might be mentioned Senator R. E.
Thomson, of Preston; G. J. Lommen,
of St. Paul; Rev. Falk M. Gjertsen,
John W. and Ludwig Arctander, Prof.
Eric Oulie, Fjelde, the artist. State
Weighmaster Reese, Henry J. Gjert
sen, assistant librarian; H. Askeland,
H. Lohrbauer, Yagvar Laws, publisher
Rasmussen, and Thorvald Nielsen.
John W. Arctander opened the meet
ing by giving an outline of the work
that is to be done by the executive
committee of five and by the great
committee of seventy; also of the plans
of the executive committee with re
gard to the raising of the necessary
money. ','
It was proposed to send out an ap
peal to the Norwegians of America,
asking them to give* subscriptions.
The appeal would be printed in every
Norwegian paper and would in the
first hand be directed to the Nor
wegian-American singers. The appeal
would be divided into two separate
parts; one issued by the great com
mittee and one by the executive com
mittee. The latter part should chiefly
be a detailed explanation of th? former,
advising those interested in the move
ment how to work for its promotion.
Liabilities Exceed Assets hy Over
Forty Thonsand.
Actual assets and liabilities in the
matter of the estate of Jessse G: Jones
were filed yesterday afternoon with
the clerk of the district court. The to
tal liabilities aggregate $191,394.93 and
the assets are $150,323.37. These lat
ter do not represent the entire re
sources of the estate, however. Con
siderable money is in mortgaged prop
erty, the aggregate being $126,021.87. !
The liabilities secured are as follows:
John Nicholson, Minneapolis, $4,956.45;
John Nicholson Jr., Minneapolis,
$225.50; Eliza J. Freeman, Minneapolis,
$28,000; Qulssey & Chase, Boston, $50,
--000; Thorpe Bros., Minneapolis, $2,000;
Security bank, Minneapolis, $2,347.50;
James D. Woodruff, Minneapolis, $-1,030;
First National bank, Minneapolis,
$8,500; Security bank, Minneapolis, $61,
--500; N. P. Clarke & Co., Minneapolis,
$5,975; F. Stevens, Minneapolis, $700;
German- American bank, Minneapolis,
$300; J. W. Day & Co., Minneapolis,
$827.92;. Standard bank, of Minneapo
lis, $400; Joenner & Hansen, Minneap
olis, $150; W. S. Hill & Co., Minneapo
lis, $1,100; C. A. Smith Lumber com
pany, Minneapolis, $300; Bard well-Rob

rah E. Fiske, Boston, $1,400; Security
bank, Minneapolis, $14,000. Total, $187,

The above are secured by a mort
gage given by Annie M. Jones to se
cure her indorsement of paper amount
ing to $61,000, on separate real estate.
It Is also secured by a mortgage on
the homestead, $2,733, Park avenue.
To this should be added, accounts
payable amounting to $4,373.06. The in
solvent is also indebted to Annie M.
Jones to the amount of her securities.
Assets— Accounts receivable, $9,635.10;
stock in yard, $3,233.79; bills receivable
secured by mortgage, $7,788.27; real es
tate, $133,500. * |.--
In figuring the value of the real es
tate, only a value above the incum
brance is given. As the secured debt
is $137,021.67, allowing for the $61,000
liability to Annie M. Jones, it places
the actual assets much more than
the liabilities, as it increases the as
sets $126,021.87. ';-■ :"*-' '7
One Unearthed Near the St. Lonis
Car Shops.
Bones of some huge prehistoric ani
mal, either an elephant or a masto
don, have been unearthed in the bank
just back of the Minneapolis & St.-
Louis car shops, where the railroad
company is excavating for ground on
which to build an addition to the
round house.
The first find was made Aug. 14, one
week ago today. The bank had been
worked down till the plows had gone
through the yellow clay forming the
substratum, and were turning over a
soil composed of white clay, largely
mixed with gravel. During the after-
noon one of the plows struck and
tore out of the ground a round frag-
ment of bone, about the size of a
man's head. Some of the surveyors
happened to be standing near, and
they immediately took possession of
the bone, which had been badly torn
by the plow, but was still of consid
erable value as a fossil.
Nothing more was found until.Mon
i day afternoon, when the plows ran
into a nest of bones of all sizes and
shapes.. One, apparently a tusk, was
broken so as to be useless, and the
different pieces were picked up and
carried away by the workmen for
keepsakes. It was * originally, they
say, nine feet long, and one section
which was preserved is eight or nine
inches in diameter, and almost cylin
drical. The workmen at first supposed
the fragments pieces of petrified wood,
and broke them into small pieces to
carry home as keepsakes.
- Another large piece found appeared
to be a tooth, but like the other it was
ruthlessly smashed, and a bucket full
of the pieces Is sitting in a window
of the roundhouse. They are of a
closer structure than the others, which
would indicate that the f ragmet was
a tooth, and its original shape bears
out the theory. But the most satis-
factory find consisted of the two pel-
vie bones, which were unearthed al
most entire, lying side by side. They
were apparently. connected when flrst
deposited by ligaments, which decayed
and left them together as in life.
May Be Assessed Against Ameri-
ican Asphalt Company.
By tonight it is expected that the
American Asphalt company will have
rolled its steam engine even to the
line of the cedar block pavement on
Washington avenue, and the slow job
of paving Nicollet avenue will have
gone down in history. At a late hour
last night the line of demarcation be-
tween the asphalt that had been laid
and pressed, and the concrete which
was yet to be covered was in the im-
mediate environment of Goodfellow's
And now comes a new contest. The
contract called for the completion of
the paving by the first of July, not of
next year, but the first of July, and it
was explicitly stated in the paper that
if the company did not finish the pav
ing by that time, that it should forfeit
$20 a day to the city for every day
which elapsed between that time and
the completion of the job. From the
first of July to the 21st of Aug. is in
round figures fifty days, and fifty
times $20, according to computations
by the city engineer, is $1,000.
When the estimates of the work are
presented to the city comptroller,
which will probably be before the last
of this week, Mr. Nye will deduct $1,000,
or thereabouts, from the little bill of
the American Asphalt company, and
that will bring on a crisis.
■ The American Asphalt company does
not propose to be held liable for this
$1,000. It will not sue, probably, but
it will try to bluff the matter through
the council. Some aldermanic friend
of the company will move to abate the
penalty, and will argue in behalf of
this proposition that the city has not
held other contractors strictly to this
rule, and that therefore it should not
be enforced.
The -Commissioners Consider a
Few of Them.
The announced trip of the school
board commissioners took place yes
terday morning at 9:30, when a number
of sites on the north and northeast
sides were looked at. Afterwards a
meeting was held at the office of the
board. No final decision was reached
with regard to the purchase of sites,
but MeGowan & Mahoney, the agents
for the site on the northeast side which
was considered most advantageous,
were requested to telegraph to the
owners of the property an offer of
$7,500 for * four lots. The price^ asked
was $11,000, so that there is very little
likelihood that the board will get the
site in question. The owners are living
In St. Louis. The site is located in
Borup's addition. Should the answer
of the owners be unfavorable to the
proposition of the board, it is probable
that the site offered by Catharine Hoy
for the price of $5,000 will be selected.
It is situated on Thirteenth avenue
northeast between Fourth and Four
and one-half streets.
On the north side there are two sites
of about equal goodness, . between
which the board is now trying to take
a choice. The sites are located on the
west side of Fremont avenue, between
Sixteenth and Eighteenth avenues
north. Secretary Marchbank has been
instructed to ascertain as to the ex
istence of water and sewers in the
streets surrounding the proposed sites.
It was decided at yesterday's meeting
to accept the offer of John C. Oswald
to let the board have the use of a lot
and building in that part of Bryn
Mawr known by the name of Osseo
park, for the purpose of opening an
annex. The building committee was
instructed to have the house fitted up
at once. The next meeting of the
board will be held at 8 o'clock this
evening. The site question will then
probably be disposed of.
Popular loans Men Named for
Company B's election to fill the of-
fice of first lieutenant came off last
night at the armory, Maj. Ames pre-
siding. There was no opposition to
Second Lieut. Rowley, and he was
chosen by acclamation.
For second lieutenant there was a
spirited contest, though the proceed-
ings were harmonious. The informal
ballot gave First Sergeant Harry
Keiler 11 votes, < Private George E.
Chant 13, Sergeant Gardner 10, Pri
vate Frank Campbell 5 and Sergeant
Allen 1. Private Chant withdrew in
favor of Keiler, who was elected on the
first formal ballot, receiving 25 votes,
Sergeant Gardner 10 and Private
Campbell 9. Sergeant Keiler's elec
tion was made unanimous.
Several old members of the company
were present, and speeches were made
by the two successful candidates, also
by the retiring first lieutenant, A. L.
Johnson, and by ex-First Sergeant
McCoy. Lieut. Rowley, who becomes
first lieutenant, has held the other
commission for over three years, and
has been connected with Company B
for eight years past. The new second
lieutenant has been in the guard six
years, four years holding a sergeant's
warrant, and has been first sergeant
since a year ago last June. Both are
popular men, and good tacticians, and
their choice gives general satisfaction,
both within and without the company.
A New Money Club Springs Up
in Minneapolis.
C. H. Pettit was made temporary
president of the silver club which or-
ganized at the New York Life building
on Monday night. It was decided to
name the organization the gold and
silver club. Membership is to be free
and men of all parties are eligible. A
committee composed of Judge Rea, C.
H. Pettit and William Butters was
named to draw up a declaration and
principles and suggest a list of officers.
It is thought that Judge Vanderburgh
will be recommended for president. A
public meeting to inaugurate the club
will be held on Saturday night at the
New York Life building.

True wisdom is to select the good

' The saloonkeepers of the state yes-
terday met in Minneapolis and took
the preliminary steps toward the or-
ganization of a state association for
mutual protection and benefit. The
attendance was not as large as was
expected. The disappointment in
this direction was mainly because of
the rather slender representation
from the interior towns of the state.
Some of the more enthusiastic spir-
its, however, explained that there
had not been a clear and general un
derstanding as .to the exact time the
convention was to convene. The be-
ginning was a fairly good one,
■though. There was a rather unim
portant session yesterday morning.
The committee that arranged for the
meeting had calculated on getting
•the knights of the tumbler together
at 10 o'clock, r but at that hour not
more than a couple of dozen saloon
men were present. This condition
did not satisfy the leaders, but in
another hour the conditions changed.
The fifty or seventy-five saloon men
present represented all the four local
organizations or. branches of the as
sociation in Minneapolis. There were
also half a dozen from St. Paul, and
as many others who represented Al-
bert Lea, Litchfield, Red Wing and
other cities of the state, Peter J.
Martin, a well-known dealer of North
Minneapolis, was selected for the
chairmanship, and Thomas Hart, one
of the moving spirits of the central
association, was chosen secretary. It
was decided to proceed with the or-
ganization of a state association, and
several committees were appointed.
The outside saloon men were repre
sented on the committees, and things
moved along very harmoniously.
When the convention reconvened in
the afternoon there was a very
good-sized crowd present. An inter- •
urban car crowded with St. Paul
dealers had come over, but most of
these kept away from the conven
tion, understanding that the real
business of the convention would not
be reached until today. The com-
mittee on credentials reported, and
then committees on permanent or-
ganization, rules and other matters
were appointed. The business of the
convention went along very smooth-
ly. A good many of the 150 men
who were there had figuered many
a time in a Democratic or. other city
or county convention, or something
of that sort, and they knew how 'to
go to work. The hurrah which some
of these political gatherings had pro-
duced, and in that very Turner hall,
was not to be repeated or duplicated
at that, the initial meeting of the
saloon men of the state.
The idea of the gathering and the
purposes of the convention can be
gleaned from the following resolu
tions, which were unanimously
.Whereas, Pursuant to a call made
by the presidents and secretaries of
various Retail Liquor Dealers' Protec
tive associations of Minneapolis Minn
representatives from these various
counties in said state have assembled
in the city of Minneapolis, state of
Minnesota, on this 20th day of August,
1895, for the purpose of forming a
state organization: and
Whereas, It is the unanimous wish
of all the representatives present that
an. organization be formed through
which and by which the interests of
in strength and purpose, and the hand
of friendship, protection and prosper
ity extended to all state organizations
now existing or hereafter to be form
ed, and to the trade in general; there-
re, be it '--..A :
Resolved, That such steps be taken
at once as may bo necessary to form a
state or ganlzation.
Resolved, That this organization be
confined*, and limited to the benefits
reformation and protection of the lia
uor trade in and for the state of Min
oi,RnS(llve,d' That thls organization
shall be known as the Minnesota Re
tail Liquor Dealers' association -».•-•■'
Resolved, That any representative
here present from any county within
the state of Minnesota, who is now en-
gaged in the liquor business, shall be
«*"♦*£ .to a E£at in this convention,
and that number and form of here-*
after selecting delegates shall be regu
lated by the articles of the corpora
tion constitution and by-laws -
Resolved, That the state organiza
tion shall be constructed upon the
■ •road plan of liberty and equality of
rights ready at any and all times to
defend these rights, irrespective of
sectarian or political creeds. We be
lieve in the exercise of equity and jus
tice in all classes of trade, contending
with no trade or profession, but at all
times contributing to the prosperity of
our state and the advancement of all
classes of business.
Resolved, That the duties and privi
leges of the various local organiza
tions in the state shall not be abridged
or in any sense interfered with, except
so far as to comply with the articles
of incorporation, constitution and by
laws of this organization. I
Resolved, That we believe in the dis
semination of reasonable temperance
measures and are in favor of increas
ing and defending the peace and happi
ness of our people and opposing the
sale of liquor to minors, drunkards
and irresponsible persons, and to en
courage the members in the compli
ance of the law. We believe in the
reformation and general elevation of
the trade. :a: -
Resolved, That we favor the unquali
fied and hearty indorsement of all
papers and journals now being pub
lished in the state of Minnesota that
have shown a disposition to state
facts and represent the trade in the
right light, and we welcome the day
when the press everywhere through
out the state will be led to a more
just recognition of human rights and
personal privileges.

The people on the hotel piazza saw
a suspicious volume of smoke issuing
from the window of a cottage across
the road. They speculated on the
chance of it being fire. Then a . little
spout of flame appeared and they
rushed toward the cottage.

scare them to death," said some one;
so, Instead of advancing withComan

you a general?"
"I was In command of the army of
Potomac, sir," he said, as. truthfully
in tone as any man I ever heard
speak. ** '■-■:.-
"Oh, come," I laughed, "I never
heard of a General Bigly in command
of that army. You are giving me guff,
as the boys say." '
"It's true as gospel," he insisted.
'Tell me about it if it's all the same."
Well, you see it was this way," he
said, pegging away at the shoe in his
lap, and not looking squarely at me,
"I was in the army of the Potomac
when Gen. Grant took charge and I
was a sergeant. You see I used to
know the general out in Galena when
he wasn't so much, and he was mighty
friendly with me and made me his
orderly. I used to go every place with
him, ridin' over the field and that kind
of thing, and sometimes there wasn't
nobody but me and the general ridin'
around for miles together. Well, one
day we had rode out along the road
and we come to a little place where
a man lived that could make the finest
mint julep in the whole state of Vir-
ginny. I knowed about the place and
so did the : general, and, when we
struck it, I could kinder see his mouth
waterin', fer mint juleps didn't grow
on trees In them days in Virginny.
When we got opposite the gate, the
general sorter stopped his hoss and
looked over at me, and I shut down
one eye soft and easy."
" 'Bill,' says he— he always called me
Bill in private— 'Bill, will you do me
a favor?'
" 'Anything on top of earth, general,'
says I. 'What is it?' A:
."'Will you be kind enough to take
command of the army while I go in
here and get a mint julep?'
"'Of course I will, general,' says I,
straightening up my back as if I had
a ramrod stuck down it, and comln' to
a salute.
" 'Thanks,' says he, 'and please hold
my hoss at the same time.'
"Then he went in, and for about fif
teen minutes I set there on my hoss
like Napoleon crossin' the Rubicon.
and was in command of the army of
the Potomac, and ever since that time
the boys have called me 'general,'
and I didn't see any use of saying thej'
shouldn't." .■'■"-. '.■:'■' -:-'-.* --.. :,..-? ■•".'■
,It didn't occur to me to ask the

rather remarkable story of his, but I
fancy if I had asked he would have

-NEWARK, N. J., Aug. 20— Vice
Chancellor Emery today granted the
Edison United Phonograph com-
pany an injunction * restraining
Thomas A. Edison from selling ken-
etiphones in Europe. The Edison
United Phonograph company claims
that, as it had the sole right by

Thomas A. Edison was violating his
contract with the company in selling
in Europe kenetiphones in the man-
ufacture of which phonographs are
used. Mr. Edison, while admitting
that he had made an agreement with

But Some of the Interested Par-
ties Declare It Is the Genuine
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Aug. 20.—
-PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Aug. 20.'—
W. A. Shoemaker, attorney for H.
H. Holmes, accused of a score of
murders, received a telegram today
purporting to come from Minnie R.
Williams, one of Holmes' alleged vic
tims. It reads as follows:
"Providence, R. 1., Aug. 19, 1895.
"W. A. Shoemaker, Attorney, Phila^
_ "The report that I was murdered is
absurd. lam well and alive. -
When the message was show-n to
Holmes he said excitedly: "I knew
my story that I did not kill the
girl would be confirmed." He brushed
tears from his eyes. "I am sorry,
however, that she has made her
self so public by telegraphing; she
might as well have written." Then
Holmes reiterated the statement that
he has made so often, that the last
time he saw Minnie Williams was
when he left her at Toronto with
the Pietzel children. ' The prisoner
has every confidence that Minnie
Williams is the best friend he has,
and feels assured that the telegram
received here today was sent by
her for the purpose of showing loy
alty to him. . c-7*7r
Attorney W. A. Capps, the Fort
Worth attorney who has been here
in the interest of Texas people who
are trying to prosecute Holmes, was
on his way to take a train for New
York when told that Minnie Will
iams had been reported alive. He
said: "I never thought she was
dead. The Fort Worth people think
she is alive, but it seems mighty
hard to locate her. She may be some
where near Boston. She has many
friends there. I would not be sur
prised if the telegram you say has
been received from her is correct."
There the conversation was abruptly
terminated by Mr. Capps having to
rush off to catch the New York ex
District Attorney Barlow would- not
say whether he thought the telegram
was genuine or false. He admitted,
however, that he would not be aston
ished if Minnie Williams appeared on
the scene at any time. Lawyer Shoe
maker is investigating the telegram,
which came over the Western Union
Telegraph company's lines. Asked as
to his belief in its genuineness he re
plied: "It may or it may not be. My
opinion, however, is that it was sent
by Minnie Williams. Holmes told me
this afternoon that he supposed the
girl has just arrived from London, and
perhaps was induced to send the mes
sage by some of his friends. It is
more than likely that Minnie Williams
sent the message from Providence
and then hurriedly left the town. She
has always, you know, had a particu
lar fondness for Boston, and besides
she has many friends* in that city. She
may have been on her way here when
she telegraphed me."
carbonic"acid gas.
A Hnrannitariau Suggests That It
Be Used to Execute Criminals.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The recent revival of the doubt in the
infallibility of electrocution as a death
penalty has naturally been followed
by a string of suggestions for a
method of sending criminals out of
the world painlessly, Prof. B. F.
Thomas holds that there are many
agencies better for the purpose than
electricity— aconite, prussic acid, or al-
most any one of a dozen chemicals,
not one of which would entail a mo
ment of pain. He considers, however,
that the preference should be given
to carbonic acid gas. Under its influ
ence the criminal would sleep his life
peacefully away, absolutely without
pain and without any of the agonized
foreknowledge of the hour and mm
ute of his execution. Prof. Thomas
argues that as it is generally recog
nized that simple removal from society
is the only object aimed at by the
capital punishment laws of civilized
nations, the most humane methods
should be selected. In two cases which
came within his own experience, where
persons had been nearly suffocated by
the fumes of carbonic gas, he found
that no pain whatever had been felt
prior to the lapse of consciousness.
There had been a slight feeling of
lassitude and some dizziness, and then
came an absolute blank, without the
smallest suggestion of fear or pain.
Prof. Thomas proposes that an effort
be made to secure the passage of some
law which will kill the criminal with
out physical or mental agony— a
method that shall be quick, painless
and certain, and which will necessaril
ly be more in accordance with the
laws of humanity. If carbonic acid
gas were selected, a cell could be fit
ted up at the penitentiary with a pipe
connection for the introduction of the
gas from the place of its generation
near by, with proper covering for the
doors and windows so that the gas
could not escape during the execution.
The law should fix the date of execu
tion between two specified days, leav
ing the exact hour to the selection of
the warden. The criminal should be
placed in the condemned cell and
given no intimation of the time of
the execution, and when the warden
turned on the lethal gas the criminal
would glide unconsciously into his last
sleep, and justice would be satisfied
without any of the uncertainty and re
peillent features of present methods of

LONDON, Aug. 20.— N. R.
O'Connor, British minister at Pekin,
has been armed with full authority
to demand the issue of the necessary
instructions to the local Chinese offi
cials there to insure the presence of
the American and British consuls at
the inquiry which is being made at
Ku Cheng into the recent massacres.
WASHINGTON, .Aug. -.O. — The
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.. — The
state department was informed to
day that there was some disposition
on the part of the Chinese officials
not to allow the American and
British officers to be present at the
investigation of the Ku Cheng riots.
It is stated at the department that
the usual hitch has occurred, in
which the Chinese officials have re
fused to allow any interference with'
their form of procedure. In every
case where there has been an in
vestigation of the kind proposed, the
same objections have been made, the
Chinese officials . feeling that they
may lose prestige with their peo
ple if they allow -foreigners to par
ticipate in their courts. These ob
jections have always ; ended in the
submission of the Chinese, after I
some delay. It can be stated author- j
itatively that the instructions to
Minister Denby cover all questions
now in controversy, and that an in- !
vestigation will be conducted in such J
a manner as to allow the American |
representative to secure complete i
and full information as to the cause ;
of the riots, and the persons partici
pating in them, whether high or
low. The .assurance is also given
that this will be done in such a man
ner as to leave nothing for com- !
plaint by the American people on the
score of failure to obtain the facts J
relating to the disturbances. 7
It is not at all probable that Mm
It is not at all probable that Mm
ister Denby has been directed to
make any such demand as that to
be made by the British minister at
Pekin, as it is known here that such
a demand will not be necessary. It
is understood that the Chinese mm- i
ister has informed his government
that the best- interests of China will
be served by according to the Amer
ican and British officers the most
thorough facilities for obtaining all
information desired. The attention
of China has been called to the fact
that when the United States govern-
ment was investigating the Chinese
riots in this country, officials of the
Chinese government were asked to !
be present to obtain all the particu
lars. It is not believed at the state
department that the refusal of the
Chinese authorities will do more than
delay the investigation for . a time,
until the Chinese government can
direct the officers at Ku Cheng to ac-
cord the American and British offi
cials the right to be present, and to
direct the investigation into chan
nels which will bring out the facts.

New York Sun.
New York Sun.
Halle, the little German salt-making
city, whose inhabitants are supposed to I
be descended from an. early race of dif
ferent blood from the modern Germans,
has a curious fete of its own, which has
been celebrated annually for many cen
turies. On that day the masters and
the salt makers, clad in red mantles,
follow to church the cake of the feast,
borne aloft by a youth accompanied by
his sweetheart. After the religious
rites follow a banquet and a dance to
the music of instruments specially de-
voted to the purpose, jj j
The fete originated in an incident that j
took place so long ago that the j very j
date has been lost. . A mill belonging!
to the commune was burned and the
family of the miller was saved by the
salt workers. When the mill was re-
built the commune voted to the salt j
boilers In perpetuity an annual cake
of 100 pounds to be blessed, carried In'
procession, and then eaten solemnly tol
the music of drums and fifes.
The ceremony has been going on thus
for generations, when, in 1370, there was!
a new Are in the city which destroyed
the city hall, but spared the salt works
and the dwellings. . Then the pious i
. commune .adopted a resolution thank- j
ing God for what he had spared, and
declaring, that thereafter , the cake
; bearer and the saltmasters and their
men- should make the procession clad
! not in \ black as' formerly, but in tunics j
l of ardent red, with plumes of the same]
color in their caps. The date of the fete
was also changedfrom St. Peter's and!
St. Paul's day to St. John's day, the
longest day In the year. Since 1376 this
order has been < faithfully observed. ;
-The out of the tunic has varied some
what with • the , fashion prevailing, but!
the style of .Louis XV. • predominates.
Thus appear the carrier of the cake an*
his "sweetheart, ' and- thus is clad th& .
halberdier. After the banquet the mem/
and maidens of honor, being those who '
In years before have carried the cake. *
decorate with red poppies the crowcjj
that presses in the public square.
Then, in the midst of a spot protected"
by barriers, the men and maids of
honor execute, not a cake walk, but a
cake dance, a grave function in which.
one must neither speak nor smile. The
dance is not complicated, but the music ,
is of a> special character, and this gives
the whole a peculiar distinction. In
the evening there is a dance of a graver
character at an inn. The waltz here
begins really at 4 o'clock in the after-
noon and is continued. until dawn. The
red habits are put away at the end of .
the fete, not to be brought out again
for a year. They descend from father
to son, and are preserved with the ut-
most care.
