Sandber^ Wm With the Victim of
the Palling; Booth Murder When
It Wm Done.
Gustavo "W. Samdberg, formerly a
prominent politician of Chicago, 111.,
and a candidate for the state senate in
the campaig-n of 1894, is under arrest at
the central police station, on the charge
of passing forged checks. Sandbergr
was arrested by Detectives Daly and
Campbell at Sand-ell's saloon, 268 East
Seventh street, yesterday afternoon
while attempting to pass an alleged
worthless check for $1.50, and when
searched at the station half a dozen
other checks, said to be forgeries, rang
•ing in amount from $6 to $115, were
found in his possession. Four of the
checks are drawn upon the Merchants'
National bank, of Chicago, and bear
the signatures of James S. Wallace, "W.
E. Johnson, G. Sandberg,-. Richard C.
Moore, Albert Ohmam, Frank Swanber^
& Co., and William F. Anderson, whii s
the other two are on the St. Pa-ul Na
tional bank. When first apprehended,
Sandberg- gave the alias of William F.
Anderson, but subsequently admitted
his identity. The police say he does not
deny the forgeries, and admits having
successfully passed a forged check for
?5.75 at Corbett's ticket office, 196 East
Third street, Saturday, in part payment
for a railroad ticket to Chicago. Sand
berg was a candidate in the Twenty-
I third senatorial distriot of Chicago,
where August Oolliander was killed
during a raid on the polling booth for
the purpose of stealing the ballot
boxes, and when, several months ago.
Aid. Thomas J. O'Malley and
John Santry. of Chicago, were tried on
the charge of being Colllamder's mur
derers, Sandberg was the principal wit
ness for the prosecution. To his brief
! political career and connection with the
O'Malley case, Sandberg attributes his
present trouble. He is a young man of
but twenty-five years, and previous to
his entrance into the political arena,
was wealthy. To a reporter for the
Globe he told the following story:
"My home is in North Chicago, wher>
I was born and raised. I made money
in the real estate business, and in 1891
became a candidate for the state sen
ate on the Independent Americans' Citi
zenship ticket. My foremost opponents
were John F. O'Malley, a brother of
the Aid. O'Malley who was tried
for Colliander's murder and who at:
that time was a candidate for re-elec
tion, and G. D. Anthony, the Republi
can nomiinee, who was afterwards
elected. It was a bitter campaign, and
I had already had trouble, as my oppo
nents had sought to have me removed
from the ticket because I was then only
twenty-one years old, and according to
the state law ineligible to a seat in the
senate. My name went before the peo
ple, however, as it was decided that if
I should be elected the proper
place for me to be disqualified was be
fore the legislature.
On Che night Colliander was mur
dered I had been with him the greater
part of the evening. We were a short
distance from the booth, when the
sounds of shots were heard, and we
hurried to the place to ascertain their
cause. As we entered the door Colli
ander received the wound from which
he died. He was my friend, and when
the state, with the assistance of In
spector Schaaok, undertook to fix the
responsibility of nis death, I told whom I
had seen in the election booth doing the
shooting and assisted the authorities
in every possible manner, by giving
my testimony at the trial, which was
delayed over two years, and as you
know resulted in the acquittal of both
Santry and O'Malley.
"During the trial of Aid. O'Malley I
was constantly under the protection of
a detective furnished by State's Attor
ney Dineen, but greatly feared for my
life, as I received a number of threat
ening letters, and was once kidnepped
by friends of the men on trial. I was
taken to a room in a hotel and prom
ised $1,000 if I would deny that I had
seen Santry and Aid. O'Malley in the
booth when Colliander was killed, and
told if I refused I would be knocked
on the head and thrown into the Chi
cago river. My captors gave me twen
ty-four hours to decide, but in the
meantime I made my escape.
"During the latter part of the trial,
while I was going home one night, a
big rock was thrown at my head as
I passed a crowd of O'Malley's sympa
thizers. I carried a revolver in my
pocket which had been given me by
Stae's Attorney Dineen. Puling the
weapon, I turned upon the crowd and
fired. I heard a cry of pain, and
thought I had killed some one. Almost
beside myself with fear, I went at once
to the depot and bought a ticket to
St. Paul. I have a brother-in-law here,
Albert Ohmon, who lives at 854 York
street. I stayed with him a week, and
then went to the home of an aunt on a
farm near Tyler. Here I remained in
seclusion under the name of William
F. Anderson until last Friday, when I
received a letter from my wife in Chi
cago, to whom I was married shortly
after my political defeat, that our two
year-old son was dangerously ill. I
wanted to see my boy, and that ac
counts for my being here In jaiL
"I had no money, having lost every
thing I had in the senatorial race and
subsequent efforts for nomination for
North town clerk, assessor and other
political offices, but I was . determined
to see my boy before he died, and,
in my desperation, planned to raise
money by means of forged checks. I
reached St. Paul Saturday and passed
one check at the ticket office, and,
while under the influence of liquor, at
tempted to pass another at the saloon
where I was arrested."
Among the papers which were found
upon Sandberg was a notary public's
commission signed by ex-Gov. Altgeld,
and Secretary Hinrichsen, of Illinois,
and a number of letters from his wife.
A check for $15 was also found in a
letter which Sandberg received at the
general delivery window of the local
postoffice yesterday morning under the
name of William F. Anderson. He took
the proprietor of the American hotel,
where he was stopping, to the post
office with him and showed him the
check as coming from his friends. Tihe
letter was postmarked Tyler, Minn.,
and Sandberg last night admitted to
Chief Schweitzer that he had forged
the enclosed check and mailed the let
ter to himself before leaving Tyler.
His object In taking the hotel man
with him Is thought by the police to
have been the preliminaries of a plan
to get the forged paper cashed. This
Sand berg denies, but explains the
presence of so many checks in his pos
session by claiming that he simply
had them to show in case his identity
was questioned by any one upon whom
he tried to pass the small checks. To
tHE SAINT PA til, GLOBE; MONDAY, MAY 31, 1897,
Chief Schweitzer Sandberg talked with
out restraint or an effort to excuse
his misdoings beyond the claim that he
was driven to extremities an account
of the desire to get home to his child.
He admitted having passed forged
checks in Chicago aggregating $30, but
claimed the victims were friends who
would not prosecute htm. He desired
to telegraph to ex- State's Attorney
Dineen and Police Inspector Schaack,
who conducted the prosecution In the
O'Malley case, but the request was de
nied him until further investigation of
his case today. The police are of the
opinion that Sandberg Is not naturally
criminal, and are Inclined to give some
credence to his story.
"NED" SOHBRS' FI'NEiHAL
1m Attended by a Concourse of
Friend*.
The funeral of Edmund T. Somers
was held yesterday afternoon from his
late residence, 480 State street. Rev.
G. H. Gamble, of Hebron Baptist
church, officiated, and the remains
were interred at Oakland cemetery.
Mr Somers has been a familiar figure
on the West side for many years. Ha
and his father have made their home
at 430 State street for a long time. He
was a quiet, unassuming gentleman
whom everybody liked. Mr. Somers
was born in Horsing, New York state,
June, 17, 1850, and came with his par
ents to St. Paul at the age of seven
years, removing to the West side of the
river in 1871, since which he has been
identified with all the interests of the
Sixth ward, being an active business
man, and also prominent in social cir
cles, few gatherings being considered
complete without his presence. Mr.
Somers, or Ned, as he was more fa
miliarly known by his intimates, was
a man of sterling integrity, and one
whose judgment was considered valu
able, and has been the counselor of
many, while his considerateness and
helpfulness have endeared him to a
large circle of friends who will greatly
miss him from his familiar walks. His
brother W. A. Somers, and his aged
father Edmund Somers, are his only
immediate relatives in St. Paul.
IS IT HIS BROTHER*
John Dietrich, of Oom», Ha* His Cu
riosity Aroused.
Ten years ago Joseph Dietrich, who
lived with his parents on a fa.iun near
Dubuque, 10., left his home and started
West, telling his parents that he was
going to California to rn/ake his fortune
as a miner. From that time no word
has been received from him, although
efforts have been mode to ascertain his
whereabouts and get some trace of
him. Yesterday his brther, John
Dietrich, who owns a farm near Lake
Como, read an item in a German pa- i
per published in Chicago telling about j
a miner named Joseph Dietrich, who
had wiamdered into the town of Banner,
Cail., in a starving and destitute condl
tion', having been nearly a week with
out food. The account stated that Diet
rich started with two other men from
Fiacho on a mining expedition, but be
came separated from his companions
and endured terrible suffering.
John Dietrich called at police head
quarters yesterday with a view of hav
ing the authorities communicate with
the police at Banner, Cal., for the pur
pose of ascertaining if the person men
tioned in the paper was his brother.
FOUGHT IN THE STREET.
"Buff" McMttnus and John McGrath
Are Arrested.
John McGrath and "Buff" McManus,
the latter a local pugilist of some
reputation, enjoyed the early part of
last evening in each other's company,
but shortly before midnight got into
a difficulty at West Fourth and
Franklin streets. They had started to
adjust the matter according to Lon
don prize ring rules when Officer Will
iam Banker stopped the bout and or
dered the men in different directions.
When Officer Banker turned the cor
ner both men rushed together again
and renewed the interrupted fight.
They managed to partially satisfy
their pugnacity before Officer Banker
returned and placed them under arrest
on the charge of disorderly conduct,
as was evidenced by two bloody faces
and swollen eyes, which gave them a
sanguinary appearance when taken to
the central station, though neither of
the men were badly hurt. They will
be arraigned in the police court today.
TAHi ROLLED ON HIM.
Jerry Taylor Badly Hurt at Sand
Creek Camp,

log. While at work Saturday Taylor
was caught under a heavy log which
he was moving. It fell across his legs,
pinioning him to the ground, where
he lay for some time before assistance
came. When the extent of his injuries
were learned it was deemed best to
bring him to St. Paul for treatment.

Military Spirit liuiylred the Servi
ce* at That Temple of .'Worship
Yesterday Morning.
"On this day set apart by law to
commemorate the deeds of the heroes
of the Civil war," said "Rev. J. F.
Stout at tfhe First M. E. church yester
day morning, "it has seemed best to
me to call attention to a theme appro
priate to thfc time, the heroic dead as
a company of martyrs, or attesting wit
nesses to the truth, who encompass us
on every hand to inspire In us a like
courage for the performance of the
duties devolving on us. By a study of
Moses we may get at the character
istics of the ideal martyr or hero.
"The first feature is self-forgetful
ness in the presence of public obliga
tion. -Moses, 'when he was come to
years, refused to be called the son of
Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather
to suffer affliction with the people of
God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin
for a season.' He recognized the obli
gations growing out of his own nation
ality. He was a Hebrew; his duty was
to his own people, and their needs were
great, while his call to be their helper
was unmistakable and clear. On the
other hand, his interest, according to
the wisdom of the world, was opposed
to his .duty,, and in presence of these
facts he turned^ from self-interest and
gave himself to Sis Ratrfotic work. Our
heroes did the .same; their interests
were at home. At the call of their peo
ple, moved by the interests of their
nation, they tore .themselves away from
the relations of love and business profit
and gave themselves to hardship, and
suffering, and sickness, and death.with
out complaint, and with such a fullness
of sacrifice that the nation Is forever
proud of her heroic sons.
"Moses and those who wrought after
him were moved and held by an in
domitable courage, measured by the
obstacles they met and the difficulties
they overcame. Our heroes, too, were
spurred and controlled by a courage
than which the; world has furnished
no better example, which is to be meas
ured by tihe obstacles they met, the
armies they opposed, the hunger and
privations they suffered, and the des
perate foes they overcame.
. "The Hebrew heroes had a deeper
inspiration, which made possible the
self-denial and courage they showed; it
was their faith which included the
discerning of divine principles involved
and confidence in Him who laid upon,
them their burden of obligation. In
this way they 'subdued kingdoms,
wrought righteousness, obtained prom
ises, stopped the mouths of lions,
quenched the violence of fire, escaped
the edge of the sword, out of weakness
were made strong, waxed valiant in
fight, turned to. f)jf ht the armies of
the aliens.' They .became Hi this" man-;
ncr the patterns' for heroes and the
inspiration of all coming men, who, In
their places, shall be called upon to
endure hardness and win victories. If
Mcses, and Joshua, and Gideon, and
Barak, Samson, and Jephthah, and
David, and the prophets, have availed
to keep the fires of loyalty burning
on Jewish altars, what shall we say
of Washington, and Greene, and Lee,
and Putnam, and Ethan Allen, and
Grant, and Sherman, and Lincoln, and
Sumner, besides the uncounted and un
named multitudes who, moved by the
same motives, gave themselves to the
cause of the nation in the name of
loyalty? Shall not this cloud of
martyrs stir our hearts to the highest,
holiest deeds and to the purest and
most exalted loyalty?
"There are perils today besetting us.
growing out of sin which is always
present. The questions of the war are
not settled. The issues that underlie
the perils of the past are ever present.
Slavery as an institution is dead, but
the spirit which for selfish interest
would keep the helpless in next to beg
gary and want is rampant, is a peril of
today. Rebellion clad in gray and car
rying a musket is overcome, but the
spirit of disloyalty which arrays sec
tions against sections for reasons that
do not concern the whole state, Is
abroad, and publishes its menaces
week by week. The army of the con
traband does not exist as such, but
the army of the poor, degraded by
organized vice, pauperized by the sa
loon and brothel, and gambling den,
are with us demanding not only pres
ent bread, but the deliverance from the
intolerance of immorality. The spirits
of selfishness, cowardice and unfaith
are abroad accomplishing their de
stroying work, and there is a demand
for every one who lives under the
perils, and enjoys the blessings of the
present, to heed the cloud of witnesses
which encompass them and, in self
forgetfulness and courage and faith,
prove a present loyalty that shall
prove that they of the present are the
true sons of the heroes of the past."

At the Park Congregational church
yesterday morning Company D, First
infantry, Minnesota national guard,
attended services, as is their custom
each year on Memorial Sabbath. The
silk nags of the company were draped
on each side of the pulpit and the
stars and stripes adorned the pulpit
itself. Dr. Ingersoll seemed Inspired
with the spirit of the day and occa
sion and delivered an eloquent dis
course as to the duty of Americans in
defending the priceless heritage of lib
erty secured for us by our forefathers,
and maintained by our fathers, whose
deeds of valor in defense of the repub
lic will ever live and ibe an incentive
to loyalty and patriotism to the rls

have the stars and jjtripes of Amer

ner of the cross, no higher, no lower,
an exalted position, indeed. The sol
diers of ancient times were compared
with the present* and- It was shown
that the soldier of. t<»day had far more
to hope for, and should have loftier
aims and ambitions. With the dawn
of the twentieth century an era of
great possibilities an 4 much prosper ~

than any preceding century, the speak
er thought, and he was sure tlhat the
United States of America, having ever
received the special blessings of the
Heavenly Father, ' would ever continue
to watch over aria protect His chosen
people. The music, both vocal and In
strumental, was of special merit, and
appropriate to the occasion.

"COURT WEEK" IN HBATEN.
This la It According to the Adven
tUtJU
The inhabitants of the Adventist
camp at Merriam Park yesterday wore
cloaks and overcoats, and stoves were
at a premium. However, the cold wave
did not chill their fervor, and the va
rious services occurred as usual, al
though the attendance from the cities
was not so large as it doubtless would
have been had the weather been more
favoraJble. However, quite a number
of visitors were on the grounds dur
ing the day.
Very early in the morning the work
of completing the preparation of the
grounds for the big meeting to begin
next Tuesday, which was laid
aside at the beginning of the Sabbath
at sunset on Friday evening, was re
sumed.
The usual devotional meetings were
held at 8 o'clock, breakfast at 7, and
family worship at 8, after Which the
thud of the sledge and the rattle of
hammers and saws indicated that the
seating, of the big tent was being
completed. The auditing committee
resumed its labors, and the-book stand
and grocery store were opened for
business. At 9:30 the young people as
sembled in their tent and were earn
estly addressed by Elder Daniel Net
tleton on the Importance of carefully
improving the golden opportunities of
youth. He portrayed eloquently the
different results of earnestness and
carelessness: in this matter.
Elder H. F. Phelps, of St. Paul, oc
cupied the pulpit at 11 o'clock. He
took for his subject "God in Nature,"
and developed the Scriptural fact that
God has spread abroad in the things
of nature, in every object of the uni
verse, from the smallest atom to the
greatest world, not only the evidence*
of His existence, but His attributes and
characteristics as well. And especially
is this true of man, "who was cre
ated in the image and likeness of
God," which image and likeness the
terrible work of ages of sin has not
been able to entirely obliterate, al
though In many cases it has become
sadly marred. He further declared
that the plan of redemption unites
God to all men.
At 3 o'clock, Elder J. W. Inglson, of
Minneapolis, occupied the pavilion pul
pit, and delivered a practical discourse
on repentance, conversion, forgiveness
of sin, amd the various experiences that
make up the Chrlstiam life. At the
saimta hour the usual meeting was held
in the Soamddnaviian tent for the benefit
of the people who use that language.
These meetings are conducted by El
der A. J. Stone, of Illinois; H. R. John
son, of Nebraska, and the Scandina
vian ministers of the Minnesota con
ference, of whom there are several.
The children's meeting also occurs
daily at this hour, amid is one of the
most interesting services held on th*i
grounds. A number of adults always
cluster around the tent to witness the
zeal and earnestness of the little ones
in the gospel lessons taught them by
their instructors.
The last service of the day was held
at 7:30, when Elder Nettleton completed
the thrilling sermon on the judg
ment, which he had begun on Saturday
evening. After reading and making
impressive comimients on the Scriptural
passages that relate to the judgment,
and the thoroughness with which the
entire life of every individual, thoughts,
words and actions, will be investigated
and rewarded, he proceeded to show
| that this searching investigation must,
fn the very nature of the case, precede
the coming of the Lord, when Judg
ment will be executed, in the instanta
neous resurrection of ' the righteous
dead, the translation of the righteous
living, and the destruction of the
wicked. The startling idea was then
advanced, fortified by Scriptural evi
dence, that the present generation is
living in the time of the judgment, in
short, that this is "court week in
■heaven," and that the case of every
soul will soon be decided for eternal
weal or woe. The end of the calendar
will soon be reached^ and there will
be no appeal from the decisions of that
Supreme Tribunal. He said: "The com
plete records of our lives are there, in
the books of heaven, written with un
erring faithfulness and accuracy by the
angels, who attend us continually and
witness all our actions, and are the
witnesses at the trial." That the judg
ment is now in session, and the time
when it begain was the next point miado.
The angel said to Daniel: "Unto 2.300
days, then shall the sanctuary bo i
cleansed," a day in symbolic prophecy
always standing for a year. The aotigel
also informed him, that the "going
forth of a decree to restore and to
build Jerusalem" would be the point
from which to begin to count thes.3
years. This decree went forth in 457
B. C, and therefore the time ended in
1844. The cleansing of. the sanctuary
was clearly shown to be the work of
judgment, from a study of the sanctu
ary of the old testament, which was
shown to be typical of the true taber
nacle in heaven, now being cleansed
from the sins recorded there. He most
solemnly declared the mnessage of Wil
liam Miller and his co-laborers and fol
lowers to be true: "Fear God and give
glory to Him, for the hour of His judg
ment is come."

ES TUB Y. M. O. A. tS VTGOROUa
FASMIOCV,
FAVORS A SINGIaB STANDAIUJ
For Measuring the Morality of the
Sexes That Society Xovr Discrim
inate* Between.
The somewhat unusual privilege of
hearing 1 a woman address a meeting
for men only was enjoyed by an au^
dience completely filling "the rooms of
the Young Men's Christian association
in Central hail, Sixth and Seventh
streets, yesterday afternoon. - The
speaker was Miss Jessie Ackerman, of
Chicago, a traveling missionary labor-
Ing in behalf at the National W. C. T.
U., wsio has supported the reform
movement in all parts of this country
and in most of the cities of Europe.
Miss Ackerman selected a text from
the Bible upon which to address her
audience, choosing the beatitude,
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they
shall see God," and in a manner not
lacking in force directed her address
against the variance In the standards
of morality, which, she said, society
had established for men and women.
It had come to be generally recog
nized, the speaker said, that to be
pure in heart was an attribute of
women only, and such a conception of
moral requisites In character had
wrought much misery and sin. Men
who had dissipated were welcomed to
the social fold when their season of
sowing wild oats had ended, but not so
with women, who, by an unfortunate
misstep, were thereafter ostracized and
classed as outcasts. "Thou shalt not,"
declared Miss Ackerman, meant men
as well as women. If this obligation
were only recognized, a quarter of a
million fallen woman, the speaker said,
would today be the inmates of happy
homes instead of on the road to de
struction. As it was not recognized,
and men were allowed every license In
immorality, Miss Ackerman declared, it
was time for the women of the world
to force its recognition by demanding
the same purity In men which men de
manded in their wives. This the woman
of the future would do, Miss Acker
man asserted, and the conditions for
which she hoped would come about
when a Christian manhood prevailed.
Miss Ackerman spoke in tine evening
also at the First Baptist church.
LEAD BOYS TO RUIX.
Rev. S. G. Smith Says Juvenile Gam
bling Exists Locally.
Rev. S. G. Smith, of the People's
church, delivered the second of a
series of sermons on amusements last
evening, taking for the subject of his
talk "Games of Skill and Chance." In
the course of his remarks the speaker
said that man's struggle against na
ture was a serious affair. He wanted
more than he had, and, consequently,
the more he wanted the harder he had
to struggle. The question of amuse
ments was largely a question of re
sults. They exhibited the character of
the man. Primitive games had many
of the elements of the modern games.
All athletic games and contests of
skill and strength were old. In early
history they were part of religious
ceremonies, and the days devoted to
the Grecian Olympian games were
holy days. Those who contested were
obliged to be of good character, and
before any of the events were com
menced the judges asked if there was
aught against the character of any of
the contestants. Such questions asked
at the present day, the speaker said,
would be apt to be rather painful and
annoying to some of the men who
took part in athletic sport. The -re
ward for feats of strength and skill
in the early days was but a simple
wreath of wild olive leaves. It was a
struggle in those days between men
and not for things. Rome took up the
games, but Instead of having the best
of the citizens participate in them,
adopted the merchant's style and hired
persons to take part in the sport.
Games of chess, checkers, cards and
dice belonged to the older civilization,
and 4,000 years ago the Egyptians
played cards. It was claimed that
games of skill were all right and
games of chance were all wrong. Some
claimed that chess and checkers were
games of skill, but cards and dice
were games of chance. There was no
more harm in playing a game of cards
than playing a game of checkers. The
real objection to games of chance was
not in the chance element, but that ?t
gave an opportunity for gambling.
Laws had been passed in all civilized
countries against gambling, and it was
right that they should be enforced.
Horse racing was of itself a fine sport,
and there was no reason why at fairs
there should not be racing of homo
bred horses driven by their owners.
The sport had been spoiled by the
betting ring, jockeys and the train of
rowdies that went with it. Progres
sive euchre was an idiotic form of
gambling. Games were not the busi
ness but the recreation of life. The
basis of gambling was moral degen
eracy. The moral law and the law of
God was that men should earn what
they received legitimately. A man
who gambled was a thief at heart
and an enemy of society. It made no
difference whether tne stakes were for
25 oents a corner or for bric-a-brac.
Day after day in this city there were
resorts open for the purpose of gamb
ling which were frequented by boys
who had not reached their majority.
They were not only wasting their
hours and substance at the game, but
also their manhood.

THE CONDITION OF YOUR URINE
WILL OFT DETERMINE KID
NEY DISEASE.
Rheumatism Manifest* Itself la
Pains, hut Other Kidney Ailments
Are More Insidious— l>odd's Kid
ney Pills Cure All Kidney His.
ST. PAUL, Minn., May 30.— There la
no insurance against kidney disease.
The best regulated kidneys of persona
of good habits will go wrong. When
you reflect how much work the kid
neys perform daily— how they filter
every drop of the blood in the human
body over and over again, you can sea
their work in prodigious. The kidneys
can do only so much work, no more.
J* w 5T ke Jl & € J9 nd their capacity they
became" weakened, and the blood be
comes poisoned. The poison remain
ing in the blood causes rheumatism, or
some other blood trouble.
Men who work constantly and take
little rest make such demands on their
sjstem that it is not strange if some
organ gives out. Usually the kid
neys are affected. Examine your
urine and see whether .it is clear or
cloudy. If it has a dark color, or is
muddy or contains deposits or sedi
ment, be sure you have kidney disease.
Take it to a doctor and he will verify
the diagnosis, if you like.
But, perhaps, your doctor may not
know the prescription which is com
pounded !n pill form and sold as
DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS, and which
has proved a sovereign remedy in all
cases and complications of kidney
trouble. Here in St. Paul many per
sons have been cured by a 50-cent box
of DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS, who
might have spent hundreds of dollars
in doctor bills without effecting a
cure.
Mr. Oorbln, an insurance agent,
writes:
Dodd Medicine Co.:
Gentlemen — For two years I was
troubled with my kidneys and with
rheumatism. I tried other reme
dies but could get no permanent re
lief. I got a box of DODD'S KID
NEY PILLS, and after using; them
I am cured. I certainly believe
they are the best medicine for kid
ney ailments and rheumatism ever
discovered.

Joy Planned at Snellingr Did Hot
Materialize.
It wasn't much of a day for a picnic
— yesterday. Unless there had been a
skating annex to the proposed lawn so

picnic was postponed until Saturday
next, when, the weather permitting, the
picnic will be held and the sporting 1
programme carried out in every detail.
DEATH WATCH* ON DURRANT.
June 11 Is Set for the Date of the
Hanging?.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 30.— Theodore
Durrant will hang on June 11, one week from
next Friday.
Gov. Budd thia evening telephoned that
much in effect to Warden Hale, of San
Quentln, at the same time ordering the
death watch placed upon the prisoner. Im
mediately after this telephoning, the gov
ernor wa3 driven in a closed carriage to the
depot, where he took the train for San Fran
cisco. Notwithstanding the fact that the
governor has made known his decision and
that the telephone message has leaked out,

BACCH AX'FE STATCE FOR CHICA<SO.
Possibility That MacMonnies' Great
Work: AVill Come West.
BOSTON, Mass., May 30.— The Bac
chante statue which so pleased the art
lovers and at the same time caused a
wave of morality to sweep over the
cultured Bostonese last fall is never
again to be favored with receptions
and pink teas. So much criticism has
teen made by moralists that Archi
tect McKim, who. at the expense of
$25,000, secured the statue and pre
sented it to the trustees of the public
library only to be snubbed in having
it refused, and after reconsideration
accepted conditionally, has within
a few days withdrawn his offer. The
opposition was led by Rev. William
E. Barton, who, speaking today of Mr.
McKim's withdrawal of his gift of
MacMonnies' finest work, said:
"It is a triumph of temperate, con
scientious opposition, and Mr. McKim
has done a wise thing."
It is understood that Mr. McKim has
under consideration the offering of the
beautiful statue, which has so shocked
Boston modesty, to either Chicago or
New York, to be placed in their pub
lic art galleries or libraries. He de
clines to discuss the matter, but inti
mates that he has a leaning toward
Chicago.
