THE CZAR TO HIS OWfl TRIUMPHAL EXTRY IXTO MOSCOW BY THE IMPERIAL AUTOCRAT OF RUSSIA. POMP BEYOND PARALLEL. PRIXCES, POTEXTATES AND PRE LATES CONTRIBUTED TO THE GLITTERING PAGEANT c AT THE ASHES OP HIS FATHERS. Memory of the Dead Czars and Ros. mihN Saeved Relics Venerated by the Living. MOSCOW, May 21.—The czar and' czarina made their triumphal entry into this city this afternoon, amid the thunder of batteries of artillery, the clanging of countless bells and the cheers of a vast multitude of loyal Rub nians and equally enthusiastic visitors from all parts of the world. Probably never in the history of nations has there been such an as semblage of peoples. Possibly the gorgeous scene may never be repeated in its grand en tiifty. At 1 o'clock, in anticipation of the coming of the czar, the entire route from Petrovski palace to the Kremlin was so densely packed with people that movement, except on the out skirts of the immense crowds, was out of the question. Prom 7 o'clock in the morning the route to be followed by the procession had been guarded by troops, infantry and cavalry, police on foot and on horseback, in uniform and in plain clothes, until the road may be said to have been lined by row after row, thickness after thickness of blood and iron. The weather was delight fully fine, a great relief after the bitterly cold and damp experiences of the past few days. The sunshine, however, had not had time to dry the muddy roads and streets, but the warmth was a great improvement and put everybody in a good humor. The signal for the commencement of the day's movement was a salute of nine guns from a battery outside the city. This was i followed by the dull booming of the big bell j of the Cathedral of the Assumption, and the ■ assembling of the troops at their various j mustering points. Then the countless high \ dignitaries of the empire and of the foreign j countries began to gather at the Petrovski j palace, to take their places in gala equipages, j or to escort on horseback the carriages of j their Imperial majesties. There were grand dukes and grand duchesses, princes and prin cesses, Asiatic potentates, innumerable repre sentatives of every country under the sun, as sembled to do honor to the czar of all the Rus slas, the ruler of the mighty empire which half circles the globe. Generals with their staffs, aides-de-camp riding at a break-neck speed, orderlies galloping furiously, were to be seen everywhere. The clash of arms re sounded on all sides, and most impressive was the gathering of the hosts of the mighty em peror. At 2:30 there was a thundering of cannon, this time from the direction of the Petrovski palace, and the living mass of men and wom en gave a great sigh of relief, for it was the signal that the czar had started on his jour ney to the Kremlin. Then there was a joy ous pealing of bells, the dull boom of the monster bell pleasingly muffling the clear, silver-like ring of the smaller bells, and giv ing forth welcome to the czar and czarina, to their guests, to Russia and to the world in general, as represented in and about this old city. The imperial procession was headed by a squad of mounted gendarmes, led by a mas ter of police. After the police came a portion of the czar's bodyguard of Cossacks. Then came the grand marshal of the court in a state phaeton, drawn by six horses, bearing the Insignia of his charge, and a squadron of the regiment of chevaliers of the guard of the Empress Marie Feodorovna. His majesty, the czar of Russia, on horse back, followed, and after him came the min ister of his household, the minister of war, the aide de camp general commanding the military household of his majesty, an aide de camp general, one of his majesty's aides de camp and other generals. Next in order came the Grand Dukes Michael, Alexandrovitch, Cyrill, Vandlmirovitch, Boris, Alexis, Demetir, Nicholas, Peter Nicholalevitch, Michael Nich olalevitch, Nicholas Michaelovltch, Alexan der Michaelovitch, Serglus Michaelovitch, the Princess Eugene and George Maximilliano vitch, Romanovsky, the Duke of Luchten bcrg, the Princess Alexander Petrovitch, Pe ter Alexandrovitch and Constantlnevitch, of Oldenburg; Duke George Mecklenburg-Strel itz and all the important foreign princes pres ent, all on horseback. The aides de camp general of the czar, a number of generals, the aides de camp of the czar, the generals attached to their imperial majesties, as well as their aides de camp and the military suites of the foreign princes, all on horse back. Her Imperial majesty, the Czarina Marie Foedorovna, and her daughter, the Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna, came next in the imperial carriages, surmounted by the im perial crown, the vehicle drawn by eight horses and each horse led by an equerry of the Imperial stables and having at each door of the carrige a grand equerry on horse back. The imperial carriage was preceded by an officer of the imperial stables on horse back. Two pages walked on each side of the box, and four Cossacks of the chamber in state uniform marched on the side of the vehicle. It was followed by six pages of the chamber and two equerries of the court sta bles, all on horseback. Her majesty, the ex-Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, was in a state carriage, drawn by eight horses, each horse led by an equerry and with equerries riding and walking on both sides of it, preceded by an officer of the imperial stables on horseback, having pages right and left of the box and guarded by four Cossacks in state uniform. The vehicle was followed by six pages of the chamber and two equerries of the court, all on horseback. Her majesty, the queen of Greece, her im perial highness, the Grand Duchess Anasta sla Mikhoallovna, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her imperial high ness, the Grand Duchess Maria Alexandro vna, Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and her imperial highness, the Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna, were in a state carriage, drawn by six horses, each horse led by an equerry and having equerries on horseback right and left of it, valets on foot on both sides and followed by two pages of the cham ber and two equerries on horseback. RECEPTION OP THE CZAR. After leaving the palace, the czar was re ceived by the commander-in-chief of all the troops, the Grand Duke Serglus, and then the latter, with a most brilliant staff, Joined in the procession. When the cortege entered the city a salute of seventy-one guns was flred from the top of the triumphal arch, amid the ringing of bells. Upon entering Moscow, his majesty was received by the governor general on horseback, escorted by his staff and aides-de-camp, and they joined the procession. At the Rosurrectlon Gate the czar dis mounted from his horse, and the empresses descended from their, carriages in order to worship at the shrine of the Iberian Ma donna, the most sacred of the many holy symbols In Moscow. At the shrine their maj esties were received by the grand vicar of Moscow, who presented them with the cross, and sprinkled them with holy water. Their majesties entered the chapel and knelt in prayer before the image. At the conclusion SAINT PAUL of their devotions, the czar remounted his horse, and th« czarina re-entered her car riage, and they passed through the gate of the Saviour-Spasskiavorota into the Krem lin, where they were received ■with all the ecclesiastical pomp possible. After having venerated the holy relics and the holy images and prayed before the tombs or their ancestors, their imperial majesties went toward the Cathedral of the Annuncia tion, preceded and followed in the same man ner. Upon leaving the Cathedral of the Arch angel Michael their majesties found assembled at the door all the ladies of the court, who had accompanied the czar and czarina from the Cathedral of the Assumption. They fol lowed their majesties to the door of the Cathe dral of the Annunciation without entering it, although they subsequently followed the im perial party to the palace of the Kremlin. At the gate of the Cathedral of the An nunciation their majesties approached the holy images and relics in the same manner as be fore, and eventually left the sacred edifice for the palace, traversing the principal halls in state and being received everywhere with the highest ecclesiastical, military and civil honors. At the moment their majesties entered the palace of he Kremlin an artillery salute of 101 guns was flred, and throughout the jour ney of their majesties the bells in all the belfries in Moscow were tolled. The czar and czarina will remain at the palace In partial seclusion until May 25, when there will be a grand review of the troops, and the ceremony I of the coronation of the imperial standard, | which always occurs three days before the I coronation. On May 22 and 23 the czar and . czarina will receive the congratulations of j the foreign ambassadors and other high digni taries in the thrwie room of the Kremlin ■ palace. No money has b';i» sparei to noe th* coronation festivities memorable in Russian ; history, and up to the present, all efforts ] have been crowned with success. The Rus i sian government is said to have spent $20,000, --i 000 on the fetes up to the present time, and ; the city of Moscow'is understood to have ex pended nearly as much money, and more : expenses have to be met. The Illuminations • will last for three evenings In succession, and will cost several millions of dollars to the j government alone without counting what the | city will contribute towards this portion of j the expense. Besides these amounts, the ex ■ per.se3 which grand dukfs and grand duch ! esses, foreign princes and ambassadors, etc., i have been put to is really enormous, one I authority going so far as to estimate that I there was about $100,000,000 worth of jewelry I alone in the procession of today. A curious fact is that the three ancient thrones to be used in the coronation have been furnished up until they look as fresh as new pinks in spite of their centuries of age. The ivory throne of Ivan 111. had a | careful washing and polishing. The first i Romanoff's throne and the'throne of Alexis I Miehaelovitch have both been rubbed up as | good as new. It was understood that It was the em j peror's intention to cancel all ministerial I warnings against Russian aewspapers and | give thorn a new lease of life. It must be | explained that the- third warning given a j Russian newspaper by the press censors car | rles with It entire suppression. There Is not I a single newspaper of importance in St. Pe tersburg or Moscow that has not had two warnings hanging over Its head for some years past. Consequently, editors who are afraid of being ruined by a third warning are careful to exclude from their papers everything except of the most innocent na ture. It was understood that the young czar would relieve the press of this sword of Da mocles hanging constantly over its head, but his ministers caused him to change his mind. Criminals and political prisoners will, how ever, not be forgotten. The crowds of Americans expected to at tend the ceremonies have not appeared. American Minister Breckinridge has a beau tiful and comfortable house. Admiral Self ridge, of the United States navy, whose flag ship, the Minneapolis, is lying in the roads at Cronstadt, has arrived, accompanied by the members of his staff. QUEEN WIL.HELMINA BETROTHED. Prince Bernard Henry of Saxe-Wei mar-Eisenach to Become Consort. LONDON, May 21.—The betrothal of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands to Prince Ber nard Henry of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, is an nounced here today. Prince Henry is a grand son of the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisen ach. The girl queen of the Netherlands is very popular in England. On the occasion of her visit to London the pi ess was unanimous in expressing the hope that she would choose WILHELMINA, QUEEN OP HOLLAND. some one of the English princes to be her consort. She is only sixteen years old ajid succeeded to the throne on the death of her father, King Wilhelm 111. The Princess Em ma was her mother. Emma was the daughter of Prince George Victor of Waldeck. Queen Wilhelmlna's education was a matter of great solicitude on the part of her father. The king hated Germany and the Germans cordially and never permitted hia daughter to learn the German language. This fact serves to give the marriage of the young queen a tinge of romance, which had otherwise been lacking. Her betrothed, Prince Bernard Henry, is the second son of the late Grand Duke Charles, who died two years ago. He is eighteen years of age and is a lieutenant in the Fifth Thurin gian infantry. SPECIAL JAIL REGULATIONS. They Will Apply to the Pretoria Prisoners. LONDON, May 21.—Joseph Chamberlain, in the house of commons, today stated that he had just received a telegram from the British agent at Pretoria, to the effect that President Kruger had promised that special jail regula lations would be formed and made applicable to the Johannesburg reform prisoners, and also that proper accommodations would be provided for them. Mr. Chamberlain added that it was probable the prisoners would not be separated. Indemnity Paid. CONSTANTINOPLE, May 21.—The Brit ish, French and Russian embassies have each received checks of £10,000 as indemnity for the outrages at Jiddah in May last, when the British consul and vice consul, the Russian acting consul and the French consular sec retary were attacked and shot by Bedouins, outside the town. *«• Rice County Boy to Be Middy. Special to the Globe. MONTGOMERY, Minn., May 21.—Patrick McEnlee received a telegram from Annap olis, Md., informing him that his eldest son, William, had passed a favorable examination and had captured the prize of the naval cadet ship from the Third congressional district of Minnesota. Mr. McEnlee is an old resident of this place and one of our substantial busi ness-jnen. His son was born In Erin town, Rice cwuity, nineteen rears ago, and was educated in our public school. He will sail for England on a tour of the world in about a month. - FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 22. 1896. —Z~" // izzzlP^, T^LJll:,: frj- ~— —- ■» t—^_ - —— —— <?• ■ ■ I --» &JPHS& . ■ — _^ VAST I|iLA]lD SEA MILES UPON MILES OF THE RED RIVER COUNTRY UNDER WATER, SITUATION IS DISCOURAGING. UNDER BEST OP CIRCUMSTANCES FARM WORK WlLIi BE MUCH DELAYED. THE DAMAGE WILL BE SLIGHT. Flood Already Receding:—High Wa ter at Cloqoet and -at Other Points. CROOKSTON, Minn., May 21. — Although the flood in this section of the country has begun to recede, the situation is truly dis couraging. There has been nothing like it for years. Shallow lakes cover the prairie for miles in every direction. Many farms are almost entirely under water, and where they are not the soil is saturated to such an extent that it will b« weeks under the most favorable circumstances before any farm work can be done. The extent to which the country is covered water can be guessed at from the fact ;that one can start from Warren, Minn., In a boat and row to Hallock, forty miles nor^h, and not be obliged to portage the boat to; exceed three miles for that distance. Or, to put it another way, it would be unsafe for an inexperienced man to drive three miles in any direction from the Great Northern track between War ren and Hallock. When It is remembered that this country is usually dry prairie, too dry at times for the best crop results, it is possible, perhaps, from these suggestions to catch a glimpse of the condition in that sec tion at this time. The crop outlook is exceedingly unprom ising in the northern counties. The re ports of soil condition hare in no way been exaggerated; there is mud wherever the water has left a place uncovered, and it must not be understood that this mud is the or dinary kind. It is alm»»t a quagmire, so deep that no driver ventnres upon it except in favored places. The streets of the towns are impassable, and they are in large part deserted. The seeding has been practically completed in all this section, though some of it is late. The water is not putting a stop to farm work in this section, generally speaking, but it is threatening the life of the seed in the ground. The opinion is that not much dam age will be done, however. The Red Lake river at Crookston is pour ing its flood over the town, and not since in the seventies has anything like it been seen. Nearly a hundred residences are un der water, some burled to the eaves. The property loss has been heavy, many poor people being deprived of all they had in the world—their modest house furnishings. The more fortunate residents have opened their doors to the flood sufferers. The city council voted to feed the people. until homes could be secured, either in • new places, where old ones had been hopelessly wrecked, or until the old ones could be again occupied. The water reached from the river toward the business center of the city nearly three blocks. Whole streets are under water and the sidewalks are floating around in the mo tionless pool like so many rafts. On the west side of town the big_ dam at the Walker mill is entirely submerged, and the river •flows smoothly over it with no suggestion in its surface of a fall. The streets are prac tically impassable, even above the flood line. The heavy clay bed has been soaked until it has become a mire on wjhich only an occa sional driver ventures. <There is no such thing as a pleasure drive in this whole coun try. GRAND FORKS, N. D., May 21.—More rain yesterday and last night makes prospects for ihe Red river valley look still more dubious. The high water of the Red river^has reached here and the flats are flooded, but nothing FA RMING IN THE RED LAKE COUNTRY. serious. Another day's rain will put the city under water. PEMBINA, N. D., May 21.—The river was rising rapidly yesterday. The same sea of mud is observed here as further south. The main business street is closed for two blocks because of the mud and danger of miring. CLOQUET,Minn.,May 21.—The C. N. Nelson Lumber company and Cloquet Lumber com pany's mills have shut down for a week be cause of high water, and may not start up this week. Several thousand ties on the Kettle and Moose river drives have gone into the woods, the streams being so widened that they could not be held together. One small stream, usually twenty feet wide, is now a quarter of a mile in width in some places. NECHE, N. D., May 21.—High water In the Pembina and heavy rains prevent the farm ers from seeding. The country is in a very bad condition. The number of acres of wheat will not be one-third of previous years. Mr. : Mayer, of Wallhalla, lost 200 hogs through the high water at that place, the river going up six feet in one night. STEPHEN, Minn., May 21.—The Tamarac river is overflowing its banks and the coun try is, in many places, under water. The railroad has been washed out in several, places j between here and Warren. It was reported this morning that Jerry Murphy, a farmer living east of here, was drowned last night while attempting t» rescue his hogs from the flood. MILACA, Minn., May 21.—The flve-year-old son of Eric Blomberg was drowned in Rum river Tuesday evening. The log drives are all coming along In fine shape, and the Koley-Bean mill is running night and day. ST. VINCENT, Minn., May 21.—From Sat urday noon until Sunday night there was a steady rain. Farmers from different parts of St. Vincent and Clow townships all agree that the land la drowned worse than any time in their experience in these townships. Two dangsrs are ahead, first, that the seed in the wet places will be killed; second, that the sun will bake the land and turn the soft wheat blades yellow. SILVERITES MAY BOLT. Secret Meeting of the Faction Held at Aberdeen. Special to the Globe. ABERDEEN, S. D., May 21.—Only vaguest rumors are afloat regarding the actual pro ! ceedings of the free silver conference in this city early this morning. Local Democrats were not invited, and trains left so closely upon the adjournment of the meeting that no opportunity was given for interviews. It was a secret meeting of a very few of the faithful, headed by such leaders as Lynch, of Beadle, and Fellows, of Aurora, It is rumored that a contesting delegation was actually named, but no Democrat in the city has a list of the alleged delegates, and does not positively j know that any were elected. There are strong i reasons for believing that the conference was more to discuss methods and plans for an other state gathering of the free silver wing of the Democracy for the purpose of electing a straight delegation to Chicago. Col. Lynch declared in favor of this plan, and it Is known other 3 viewed It as he did. The silver Demo crats claimed they had two-thirds of the dele | gates present at the convention, but for the | fact that the entire Black Hills was practically j in control of three gold men, who were loaded dewn with proxies, and that the convention permitting them to vote put the silver forces in a minority. Had the sllverites bolted on the admission of these proxies, and they now regret they did not, they claim they could have broken up the convention and made a strong case. The convention attracted wfde spread Interest. Probably 200 telegrams were received here from members of congress and government officials, urging their respective factions to stand pat and make no compromise. DOMINION TO RETALIATE. Minister McDonald "Will Propose a Contract Labor Law. Special to the Globe. WINNIPEG, Man., May 21.—1n addressing electors here tonight Hon. Hugh John Mac- Donald, minister of the Interior, said he would give immediate attention to the In- Justicp that was meted out to Canadians by the United States government through alien labor law and would endeavor to have placed on the Canadian statute books an act worded precisely the same as the United States law, and would do this on the ground that "what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander." This announcement was receded with cheers. GLOBE. PRICE TWO CENTS—] F ? v ™Kvr" IT flflS THE GIiITTER AXD ASSAYERS CLAIM THAT IT IS THE GEXLIXE YELLOW 3IETAL. GOLD ON THE EAU CLAIRE. ORE FOIXD WHOSE Al RIFEROIS QUALITIES WARRANT ITS BE. IXG MIXED. COMPACT WILL BE FORMED. Capital and Latent Improved Ma chinery Needed to \\ uri. the New Field. Special to the Globe. EAU CLAIRE, Wls., May 21.—The latest news from the gold mines, In the town of Seymour, on the Eau Claire river, established the fact beyond all peradventure that gold ore, which can be worked at a profit, exists within twelve miles of this city. Messrs. Sharpless & Wlnchell, of Minneapolis, have recently made an assay of specimens sent from Big Falls, on the Eau Claire river, which yield $11.88 to the ton in gold and 22 cents in silver. W. Lehman, of St. Paul, assayed one speci men, which yielded 51,202.50 to the ton In gold and $1.03 in silver, and another specimen v.hlch showed $20 per ton in gold and $3.40 in silver. Prof. Appleby, of Minneapolis, an ex pert on mining and metallurgy, found traces of gold in a specimen sent to him for exami nation. Ten years ago ore which yielded $20 a ton would not have been considered worthy of attention; but, with Improved methods of ex tracting, conditions have changed. Within ten years processes have been Invented which make profitable the mining of ore that docs not yield over $7.50 a ton. Gold was first discovered on the Eau Claire river some ten years ago by James Patrick. He had no means, and tried to induce Eau Claire capitalists to invest, but without suc cess. He came at an unlucky time. They had but just emerged from a bitter experience in Iron mining shares, which, like the money in the Eastern fable, turned to leaves. Many a galled Jade here still winces at the mere mention of ore, or traces, or indications, or veins, or anything of that sort. About a year ago J. D. Morgan ft Co., of St. Paul, who have had experience in develop ing mines and quarries, took hold. They have proceeded quietly to develop the mines, using their own means, and have established the fact that gold ores In paying quantities can be had In the region stated. Twenty-dollar ore cannot be taken out and hauled a long distance. The amount expend ed for carriage would bear too large a propor tion to the value. ,What is needed here are plants of the best sort for treating the low grade ores. High-grade ores may be taken to the mill, but low-grade ore must have the mill taken to It. There is no special boom at present, but when the fact becomes known that paying ores exist here, Investment will undoubtedly follow. It takes gold to get gold everywhere. . ■^»- MERRY CYCLE WAR ON. Dnliith Ordinance Not Well Received by Wheelmen. Special to the Globe. DULUTH, Minn., May 21.—At the last meet ing of the city council an ordinance was passed limiting the speed of bicycles, requir ing the use of bells and lanterns and keeping bicycles off the sidewalks. Today the or dinance went into effect and as a result there is war between the cyclists and the police. Early this morning cyclists with cow bells, whistles and other Instruments of torture came out and paraded the streets. They were ordered to stop or they would bo ar rested for disorderly conduct, and some obeyed. One boy of fourteen was arrested, but was released later. Tonight gongs, cow bells, engine headlights, common stable lan terns and other facetious ideas are being sprung, and police this afternoon chased sev eral cyclists with the Idea of arresting them. As the police had no wheels their prey escaped. FOOTPADS TAKEfI 15 ROSDO STREET OFFICERS CLEVER LY CAPTI RE A BRACE OF HIGHWAYMEN, EACH HAD A GUN AND A MASK, WERE LYING IN WAIT FOR A VIC TIM WHEN' POI'XCED IPOS. THEY ARE MINNEAPOLIS MEX, Believed to Be Ttro of the Thrtf Who Terrorised-the Hill Mon day XI K !it. George Harris and Frank Hill are locked up at the Rondo street station. They are supposed to be two of the trio of footpads who held up three St. Paul citizens within an hour last Monday night. The two prisoners are tough men beyond question; and the police say there Is not the slightest doubt but what they are the "gun grafters" for whom the law has a rod Id soak. Harris and Hill were captured while lying In wait for a victim, and were rounded up by as clever a piece of police work as has been done anywhere. Capt. Lowell and his of ficers have good reason to congratulate themselves on the quirk success of their ef forts, and deserve a great deal of credit for last night's work. For several nights back half a dozen of ficers have been detailed In citizens' clothes to patrol the hill district. The territory w&i so divided that no two would cross each oth er, yet all would be within hailing distance. After the encouraging hauls made Monday night the robbers evidently considered it the part of wisdom to lay low uutil the ex citement had died out. Hence the waiting of ficers did not even get a glimpse of their quarry until last evening at 10:30. At the hour named-Officers Smith and Mey ers were near the corner of Grand avenue and Avon street. They noticed two men walking in. rih, a block away, and at once began to shadow them. When Harris and Hill reached the corner of Avon str^Pt and Ashland avenue they lay down behind a tree on the grass, be tween the sidewalk and the curb. The place i whereon they lay is slightly raised above the sidewalk, and from this vantage point they had a clear view in four directions. When they planted themselves they evl duuiy did not notice Officer! McHale and Schillings, who were leisurely approaching; or. If they did see them, the highwaymen were going to let the two pedestrians get ■ right up to them, or jiasH them, before calling a halt. One of them had partially risen and the oilier one was resting In a handy position on one arm, so that he could spring 10 his R feet in a moment. No doubt it was surprise that prevented them changing their position! when the two officers quickly stepped from the sidewalk and accosted them. "What are you fellows doing here?" asked McHale sharply us ha laid hands on Harris. "Just resting," respond: d the thlof; but be fore he had finished his answer each of the officers had a cafe hold on his man, Me Hale taking Harris and Schillings grabbing Hill. Instinctively the officers put out a band to feel for guns In tho pockets of their prisoner!. And they found Just what they expected. Harris had a 38-callber bulldog revolver, fully loaded, in the right hand pockot of hla coat. Hill had a similar weapon In his hip pocket. They collapsed as soon as the shoot ing irons were taken from them; but as soon as these had been safely put away M( Hale noticed (something about the nock of Harris. He reached for it and pulled out a mask, which was tied In s'ich a manner that It could be Instantly nuspd to cover the upper part of thf face. While McHale pulled ths mask up over Harris' face to see how it looked Schillings was looking for a similar bit of paraphernalia on Hill. He found It in a coat pocket. It was exactly like the one Harris had; in fact, the two masks are but two halves of a woman's stocking. First the • foot and upper part of the stocking were | cut off. then it was cut In two lengthwise. j Pieces of stout strings were tied onto the <-mis and fitted to the head. They are primitive affairs, but quite handy, because they could be so easily dropped under the chin and stowed out of sight. Just as the footpads had been landed by McHale and Schilling! Officers Smith and Meyers Joined the group, and the prisoners were questioned. Harris did most of the talking. He attempted to brazen It out by saying they had Just been taking a walk. Then he claimed to havo been visiting an uncle, but his yarn was incoherent. He said he lived on upper Jackson street, but wouldn't say where. Hill claimed to reside "on the hill," but did not attempt to lo cate his domicile. The badly wanted pair was marched down to the Rondo station, where Detective Swee ney sized them up as Minneapolis thieves. In their pockets were found poker chips marked Brown's, and there Is such a place In the Mill City. They had no money worth mentioning, and very likely they have gam bled away what they secured from Messrs. Warner, Angell and Harper Monday night, if they are the men who did the work Mon day night. Both prisoners are smooth shaven, though In need of the services of a barber. They are intelligent looking, and wise enough to talk very little. Hill Is apparently about thirty to thirty-five years old, and stands fully six feet high. Harris is only of medium height, but he 1c an athletic, determined looking chap. When they were locked up Hill undressed ana lay down, but did not go to sleep. He lay on his back, with the bed clothes pulled up under his chin, staring through the bars at the flickering gas Jet. In the next cell I to him was an uneasy party T/ho had evl- I dently been drinking so much that he war In ' c!lned to be cranky when woke up. Across the j narrow aisle Harris had thrown himself on the j bed without removing even hia coat or shoes. j He lay on his side, with his Derby hat partlal j ly covering his face. When spoken to he vrai j "dead to the world," and not a word could j be gotten out of him. Lieut. Pendy was very much regretting I last night that they had not also caught the i third robber. He is thought to be the one \ who wielded the sandbag and "billy" that knocked out and badly Injured J. R. Warner. The gentlemen who were held up and rob bed Monday night will be asked to take a look at the two prisoner* this morning, for purposes of identification. Fortunately, the masks can be put on, and thus rigged out the men will not be able to escape idemifkatlon, ' if they are really the ones wanted, and no person who saw them last night seems to have any doubt on this point. It Is hardly likely that the men will be arraigned in court today, as they may be prevailed upon to tell who the third man Is. _ •*> Given Ip by the Waves. Special to the Globe. ASHLAND, Wis..
