Second Operation Performed on the
Jacob Fjelde now lies between life and death
at St. Barnabas' hospital, as the result of an
other operation performed upon him yester
day afternoon. The operation occupied two
hours, between 1 and 3, and was successful
as far as location of the trouble is concerned.
The rest will depend upon whether unforeseen
changes take place.
The first operation, the mastoid process,
being the first of the kind performed in this
city, did not bring the expected relief, and
consequently the doctors had to • prepare
themselves for another operation. The ear
had to be cut away so that it could be laid
forward, so as to give the physicians a chance
to get at the middle ear. Here the immediate
cause of the trouble was discovered, it being
-the result of a chronic ear trouble that he for
a long time has been suffering with. The
dome above the middle ear, and upon which
the brain rests, was found In a decayed condi
tion. This was successfully cleared away
and further probating made, which did not
reveal any pus, as had been expected. An
expected abscess was not found, but, on the

said. it was some one other than Marvin.
The court refused to let the accused go on

Blew Out His Own Brains.
' Knut T. Olson, a carpenter living at 2009
James avenue north, took his life by shoot
ing himself about 10:30 o'clock Wednesday
night. He was found this morning about 7
o'clock. Life was extinct. Olson, some
time during the night, it is supposed be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock, as neighbors thought
they heard a shot, placed the muzzle of a
32^caliber revolver ln his mouth and fired.
The shot tore the roof of his mouth horri
bly, and went up through his brain. It is
thought that he died without a struggle.
He was found in the shed yesterday morn
ing by his son, Alfred, with whom he re
sided. It is thought that old age and de
spondency caused the deed.

One Will Soon Be Forthcoming:— The
Army Officers in Executive •
Commander Booth-Tucker, who arrived in
Minneapolis yesterday, was welcomed last
evening by an audience which filled the
Plymouth Congregational church to the doors.
The people had gathered from all classes of
society to see the man who comes as the rep
resentative of the general of the Salvation
Army, and many were turned away for want
of seating capacity The meeting contained
comparatively few Salvationists, and while
upon the whole less noisy than such meetings
usually are, it proved a successful gather
At 8 o'clock the entire Salvation Army of
the city assembled at the Hennepin avenue
barracks and formed in marching order, four
abreast. The column was headed by a brass
band, and banners were Interspersed at reg
ular intervals. The precession was not unlike
a march of soldiery, with the exception that
an occasional shout of "Glory", or "Halle
lujah" would mar the discipline. There were
apparently 500 soldiers in line.
By the time the commander was escorted
to the church the building was filled, and
everything was ready to begin. As Command
er Booth-Tucker ascended the platform, ac
companied by Maj. and Mrs. Stillwell, he
was greeted by a deafening shout, empha
sized by beating of drums and tambourines
and clapping hands. He returned the salute
by waving his handkerchief, and immediately
white was streaming all over the house. He
thanked the audience for their hearty wel
come, and stated that he was only sorry that
his wife, "the consul,'-' was unable to be
present, she being on a similar expedition
upon the Pacific coast. A song to the tune
of "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, the Boys Are
Marching," with a chorus In which "Halle
lujah" was the principal thought, was the
opeing gun of the evening, after which the
commander led In prayer.
The commander has a peculiar method of
praying. He talks first to the Lord, then to
the people. He talks about his own ex
periences. In his prayer he thanked God for
a happy religion, a religion that can sing and
pray and enjoy itself. He continued: "I
suppose it would create a sensation in Min
neapolis if the president of the United States
were to enter this church tonight. But a
greater than the president is here. The King
of the skies Is amongst us. He Is here.
He Is here. Bless God. Ours Is a blessed
service— who think so say 'Amen.' Say
it again. Say it again." The prayer, con
tinued for the Salvation Army, and the com
mander stated his belief that the poorest
Salvationist would be richer in sky "paper
sky dollars— than the most respected Chris
tian who was not willing to fully consecrate
himself to the service of the Master. The
prayer was concluded by Mrs. Stilwell, whose
earnestness succeeded In eliciting "Amens"
from all the Salvation people present.
Lieut. Martin, of feminine persuasion, was
called upon for a solo, and sang about climb
ing the golden stairs to glory. The music
had been composed by Commander Booth-
Tucker and the words by his wife. The au
dience joined in the chorus.
"The Conquests of the Cross" was the sub
ject of the address by the commander. He
took his text from Proverbs 30:29, and de
livered his speech from the verse as he pro
ceeded. He said: - - ::
"Whatever we undertake, we like to be
conquerors. The wife wants to be a con
queror in her home, the husband in his
business. The student wants to win victories
at the college. Quoting the text, 'There be
thice things that go well.' In India, where
I was stationed ln the service of the . queen,
we frequently had occasion to ride In mail
wagons, and frequently we found horses that
refused to go when the driver was ready to

the wagon over Into the ditch. When per

That Is very much like some Christians. It
Is hard to get them started, but when they
once do make a move, they go well unto the
end. 'There be three things that go well,
yea, four, which are comely in going. A
lion, which is the strongest among beasts
and turneth not away for any.' We want to
be like the lion. There are so many spiritual
cripples. The sore " spot of Christianity is
cowardice. Not that we fear to face an ene
my with deadly weapons, nor to rush into the
seething Mississippi, to rescue a drowning
friend, nor into a burning house to assist an
occupant in escaping. But we are cowards
in reference to matters of religion. We are
afraid of ridicule.
"The devil Is fighting us with a bundle of
feathers for a sword. He shakes the bundle
of feathers, which typifies ridicule, and we are
all willing to run away. Let us have Chris
tians in the Salvation Army with great cour
age. The second thing that goes well is
the race horse. I want to bo headed straight
for the kingdom, and I want all my friends
to bet 10 to 1 that I'll get in there with a
rush. Let us be swift for God and eternity.
This country is remarkable for swiftness.
We get about on electric cars, everything we
do is rapid. We have rapid newspapers.
Why the newspapers are so rapid that they
give us the news before it happens. If you
want to be a conqueror under the cross you
must be quick. •
" 'An he goat also.' The he goat or chamois

swift in climbing out of danger's reach. The
devil Is after sinners, and. you want to flee to

Cross the precipice of consternation and get
upon the rock of holiness."
" 'And a king against whom there Is no ris

may be a conqueror with the cross of Jesus.
Let us find the cross, and prove it by its

OFFICERS IN SESSION.
The council of officers, which was held at
the Salvation Army barracks on Cedar av
enue, between Fifth and Sixth streets, yester-
day afternoon, was of a secret character, only
officers being allowed into the hall. Before
the conference was called all members of the
army were allowed in the hall and listened to
the words of their new commander, Booth
Tucker. During the officers' meeting prayers
were made by several of those present, and
the general condition of this division of the
army, which takes in all of Minnesota and
the northern part of Michigan, was discussed.
While the name of Balllngton Booth was men
tioned occasionally his secession was not dis
cussed, though it will, of course, come up be
fore the council Is over. The policy of
the • array under Maj. Stillwell Is to com
pletely Ignore, as far as possibly, all elements
which conflict with the work, and proceed
as though all was peace and harmony. The
meeting was a model so far as quietness and
oider went, and not even a word could be
heard by those on tho outside of what was
going on Inside.
While riding Into town on the cars the
commander asked if there were any slums
in Minneapolis, and on being told that he
was at present going through one of the
toughest parts of the city, he looked mildly
surprised, and remarked that it did not
! look as if It was a locality of that character.
! He was very much interested in the mills
and elevators that were passed, and regretted
not having time to go through them. They
| suggested an Idea to him, and, turning to
Maj. Stillwell, he inquired if there was much
j work being done by the army amongst the
farmers. The major replied that there was
not, only as a corps was sent out and did
some revival work. The commander thought
it was a field where a great deal of good
could be accomplished, and seemed a trifle
surprised that more attention was not given
to this branch of the work. When asked to
give some of the points that were discussed
at the meeting, Booth-Tucker replied, "Why
should I? Will it be of benefit to a soul?
The papers have no souls, and very few of
those who read them have souls, either." j
He will not stop in St. Paul this time, nor
will he spend much time in viewing Minne
apolis, though he stated that he wished it
were possible for him to remain some time
in the city, as what little he had seen of it
pleased him very much.
To a reporter, in answer to questions, he
"Yes, we are getting out a reply to Bal
llngton Booth's public statement issued last
Monday. I can't tell you exactly what we
will say, but it will be unanswerable. We
have no intention of breaking down national
lines. We are not, as Balllngton Booth says,
going to unite Canada and the United States
in administrative zones. The strength of the
army has always been in its respect for na
tionality. Look at Germany, look at France,
look at India, We are of the country we are
in. There is no desire to impose English
"Our work in India, conducted on the line
of being an Indian among Indians, has been
very successful. There is no truth in the
bitter words of the attack made on us by
Rev. Mr. Stuntz, in the columns of the Chi
cago Record. We will answer that also. We
go right on. The Salvation Army always
does. Our success creates enemies. More
successful work in India on $25,000 than
some church societies on $500,000 has stirred
up some of the churches." ,
Baxter on the Stand in His Own
Attorney A. P. Loomis will try to prove to
the jury that George Baxter killed Celia
Baxter, his wife, in self-defense.
That is the way the Baxter murder case
presents Itself to the public at present, and
that is the way the evidence for the defense
was put in, after the state had surprised
everybody by resting its case after less than
a day in the trial. True, the state had little
to prove, as the defense did not intend to
deny the killing, and so there was only to
be shown the fact of the death, the condi
tion of the body, and the admissions of. the
man who was caught red-handed.
The claim of the defense is that Cella Bax
ter assaulted her husband with a razor, and
that he, to protect his own life, seized the
hammer and beat out her brains. That is the
way the case is presented, and that is the
way the evidence was outlined by Mr.
Locmls when he opened the case for the de
fendant. His client was a weak cripple, and
his • wife had been a strong, well woman,
with a violent temper, and that was what
caused the tragedy.
Mr. Nye opened the ease for the state
by his address to the jury. He stated the
facts regarding the murder, and outlined
what the evidence of the state would show.
C. J. Rlngdahl was the first witness. He
detailed the condition in which he found the
remains. Dr. Thomas B. Watson corrob
orated his story. John F. Walsh, keeper of
the morgue, gave evidence chiefly as to the
way in which he found the body when he
went after it. Hans Bulie, a police officer,
was sworn, and said that he was standing
on the corner of Twelfth avenue south and
Washington the morning of the murder, when
the Baxter boy came running up to him and
told him he wanted him to go to a house
near there, for there were a couple quarrel
ing. He replied that he had more to do
than to go and interfere with family quar
rels. Then the boy told him that there was a
murder going on, perhaps, and then he went
to the place and saw the woman lying on
the floor alive, and the man with his throat
cut, and, as he thought, dead. He saw the
hammer and the razor lying on the floor of
the room near the bodies.
Frank Hailing, a blacksmith, had also been
called to the scene of the trouble, and he
saw much the same as the former witness.
Howard Baxter, the son of the accused,
told a short story for the state. He knew
little of the affair, and had heard no quar
rels at^ any time on the morning of the
murder. He only knew that he came into
the kitchen aud saw his mother lying upon
the floor in a pool of blood. Over her stood
his father in a threatening manner, and the
father reached down and picked up a razor
from the floor near the mother. Then the
boy left hurriedly for help. He heard his
father admit the deed. M. G. Powers was
called and told where the body was lying.
He also heard the admissions of the killing
by the accused. This closed the state's evi
dence, and then Mr. Lownes made hi 3 open
I The defendant was sworn ln his own be-
I half for the defense. He took the stand
j cooly and spoke in a calm voice, and in lan
guage which gave an appearance of a fair
| education, although he swore he was a com
mon laborer. He said he was a cripple, sick
ly and weak, and that his wife was of good
health and very much more muscular than
he was. This was a preliminary excuse for
the defense which had been urged.
Witness told his story without much
prompting. On the morning of the trouble
the couple had gone into the kitchen, where
they were making preparation': for break
fast. While there a quarrel arose She
seized a razor that was lying on the table
and made for him. He was standing on the
other side of a table from her, - where was
a hammer with which they had been crack
ing nuts the night before. He seized this
and as she came to him, he struck her and
then became so angry he did not know what
he was doing. When he realized all that he
had done, he picked the razor from the floor
where it had fallen, and tried to take his

here from Nagarote, where President Zelaya
now Is, which says that a messenger from
the rebels is now on his way to this city
bearing a message from the leaders of the
revolt to the United States minister, - Lewis

President Zelaya has, up to .this time, been
willing to consider are unconditional sur
render on the part of the armed forces and
the giving up for trial of the leaders.
The progress of events recently has been
steadily against the rebel cause. The gov
ernment troops have entered upon their de
layed co-operation with their Honduranian
allies, and for some days past the two forces,
by a joint movement, have slowly but surely
been surrounding the rebels at Motombo La

ernment completed the circle when it took
Celba Mocha. Celba Mocha was attacked
today by the rebels, but they were repulsed
with heavy loss. Gen. Pali*, of the govern

The Censor Sees Where the Cubans
Might Have Been Crushed.
HAVANA, April 16.— Further details of the
meeting between the Alfonso battalion and
the Insurgents under Maceo at San Claudio
show that the Spanish -gunboat Alerta, which
so opportunely went to the assistance of the
troops, found the latter had been compelled
to retreat before an overwhelming force of
5,000 Insurgents. Although the ' insurgents
outnumbered the men of 'the battalion by over
ten to one, the Spanish retreated in good or
der, fighting stubbornly as they did so. The
fire of the troops was, so well delivered and
the movements of the battalion were. so ef
ficient that the 5,000 Cubans were unable to
achieve any advantage further than com
pelling the greatly overmatched body of Span
ish infantry to retreat in good order. Besides,
it is claimed even this retreat would not
have been necessary had it not been for" the
suplneness of Gen. Echavarla, ho was In
command of a much stronger Spanish col
umn operating in conjunction with the Alfonso
battalion. Gen. Echavaria not only failed to
support Col. Devos as promptly as he should
have done, but he seems to have delayed
notifying Gens. Suarez and Inclan of the lo
cation of Maceo's forces when the latter had
attacked the Alfonso battalion in force. Oth
erwise a combined- flank movement of the
Spanish troops might have resulted in crush
ing Maceo's army, and possibly extinguishing
the rebellion at the same time. If the Span
ish columns had acted well in concert the
result -might have .been, a most disastrous
defeat for Maceo. -.Gen .-.Echavaria has since
been relieved of his ; command, and i Is now
in this city trying to explain his inaction to
the satisfaction of the captain general. It is

as promptly as possible under the circum

by the country his column had to traverse.

DEADLY X RAYS.
They Send Contagious Disease
Germs too. Final Sleep.
CHICAGO, April 16.— Prof. H. P. Pratt and
"Prof. Hugh Wightman announce to the world
that diphtheria and typhoid germs are abso
lutely killed by the Roentgen rays. This
statement Is made without reserve. The de
cision was reached this evening ln the lab
oratory, when the last of the germs which
had been exposed to the rays failed to show
signs of life under the glass— the deadly ba
cilli remaining idle and inactive in the midst
of the best and most tempting imitation of
human tissue. Prof. Wightman prepared
four colonies of epidemic breeders. They
were located in tubes, filled with nutriment.
. Prof. Pratt turned the current into the
great cell, and the ray, which is believed to
be the solution of infectious and contagious
diseases, was thrown into the groups of
bacilli. All the faults of the first trial were
eliminated. The magic agency was allowed
to work sixty-two minutes. A critical and
elaborate examination showed a great chem
ical change. It was evident that the force had
acted upon the artificial tissue. It is expected
that free oxygen was made and an acid cre
ated exactly as would take place in the hu
man body. This acid either kills the germs or
puts them to sleep. They will new be trans
planted. The two physicians are risking their
professional reputation by the prophecy that
not one of the four groups will ever be able

to St. Louis.
DENVER, Col.. April 16.— Senator Teller
and Representative Shafroth have decided
definitely that they will not be candidates for
election as delegates to the national Repub

hope that the convention will nominate a can
date or adopt a platform which they can In
dorse. Both say they cannot support a gold
standard candidate for the presidency, no
matter by what party nominated, and they
would only place themselves in an embar
rassing position by participating in a con
vention which is so certain to take a position
against silver as they consider the Repub

THE ALLEGED MURDERER OF
LENA OLSON IS NOW UNDER
JAMES ALSOP IS THE MAN.
THE ARREST MADE AT SEATTLE
BY DETECTIVE. COURTNEY, OF
MINNEAPOLIS. .[^ \
ALSOP DENIES THE ALLEGATION.
He Says That While He Was in the
Northwest He Was Never
Known as Austin.
SEATTLE, Wash., April 16.— James B. Al
sop, formerly a Tacoma and Minneapolis real
estate dealer, was arrested here today by
Detective Courtney, of Minneapolis, on a
charge of murdering Lena Olsen at Duluth,
Minn., in the fall,. of 1834. The murderer of
Miss Olsen went by the name of A. A. Aus
tin, and Courtney claims to have positively
identified Alsop as Austin. Alsop denies that
he is Austin.
Minneapolis, April 16.— story leading up
to the arrest of Alsop at Seattle for the mur
der of Lena Olsen is an interesting one. Al
sop, while living here, was known as Olenson,
and lived at a boarding house on University
avenue southeast. He left the house on the
same evening that Lena Olsen started on
j her fatal journey to Duluth. When he took
his departure he left a valise which has
never been claimed. A week ago it was
taken to police headquarters and opened.
In it were found letters and papers which in
dicated that Ellenson, Alsop and A. A. Aus
tin were the same man. There was also evi
dence to connect the man with events in Se
attle, and Detective Courtney was sent there
to investigate. It is said that the description
of Alsop fits perfectly that of Austin, and that
the papers in the valise in themselves con
stitute, a strong case. _ The Minneapolis police
are certain they have the right man.

NOVEL SILVER IDEA.
What It Is the Coinage Men Desire
to Do for Labor.
WASHINGTON, April Representative
Newlands,- of Nevada, today made a speech
before the house ways and means committee
on the competition of silver -standard coun
tries with the industries of the United
States. He said: "It was not the desire of
silver- men to bring the labor of the United
States down to the standard of silver-using
countries, but by increasing the use and price
of silver to bring labor up to our standard
and deprive it of its advantage. We have
now a tariff system which measureably pro
tects us against the cheap" labor of Europe,
but what tariff can protect us against Oriental
labor?" "If the price of silver was advanced,"
he added,, "competition would be checked; if
silver remained at its present price, their man
ufacturing establishments would be enlarged
and the competition increased.
MIS PARENTS* FAULT.
The Owning' of Children Is a Re
The young man admitted that he had
children, and the real estate man frowned
and shook his head. -
"We are very particular ln regard to that
building," he said at last, "and I am afraid
I cannot let you have the flat."
"I am very sorry," replied the young man
meekly, "and ~it seems rather hard that a
man should be made to suffer for what is
no fault of his own, but I suppose It can't
be helped." : _ . -
The real estate man looked surprised.
"You see," explained the young man, "I
wasn't given a fair chance, for I never was
told in my younger days that it was wrong
to have children, or that there was any pen
alty attached. I supposed it was all* per
fectly natural . and . proper, but I presume
the enormity of the offense is fully explained
in all the schools now,'.'
"Really, I— .
"Then I had a very bad example set me
right In the family," Interrupted the young
man, "for my parents had children. It
seems remarkable, doesn't it? But it's a
fact; and they were held to be very estimable
people, too. I was taught to revere. them,
and naturally I fell into the error of sup
posing that there was nothing unlawful or
opposed to public policy about it, and so I
married, and now I ' find myself in such dis
repute that I can't get the kind of flat I
want. I suppose It's all right, but you must
admit that it seems rather hard on a man
who always aimed to be a good citizen."
"My dear sir,"" you- — " -.-•*
"Now I think of It," broke in the young
man again, "I suppose your ' parents were
guilty of the same offense.. I do not see how
you can successfully deny It. Now, sir, I
would like to ask you If you think it is' fair
for a man to expect his tenants to be more
acceptable than his parents?"
"I was about to say, when you interrupted
me," returned the agent, "that, under the
circumstances, I am prepared to suspend the
rule regarding children and let you have the
flat." ' - . .

.. Reynard is a knowing animal. The foxes,
are much tormented by fleas, but when the
infliction becomes too severe they know how
to get rid of the insects. They gather from
the bark of trees moss, which they carry to
a stream that deepens by degrees. Here
they enter the water, still carrying the moss
in their mouths, and, going backward, begin

With the exception of the mouth, is entirely

have rushed ,in rapid haste to the dry parts,
and finally to tiie moss, and the fox, when
he has, according to hie calculation, allowed
sufficient time for all the fleas to take their!
departure, quietly opens his- mouth. Th*

den of fleas, and when it is out of jumping
