COMMISSION TO ORDER A V
AEW GREAT XORTHERX STATIONS
Indications of the Increase ln Pop
ulation and Traffic of Its
The members of the railroad' and
warehouse commission have returned
from Chandler, on the Southern Min
nesota division of the Milwaukee road,
where the residents have petitioned for
a passenger depot. The commission
ers found that the location where the
depot is desired is nearly midway be
tween lona and Edgerton and about
eight miles from each, and the popula
tion is limited. Two small houses are
made to do for station, office and
freight depot. The commission has as
yet reached no decision.
Complaint has been filed with the
commission by H. Quamberg and Will
iam Norgren, doing business at Jas
par as the Jaspar Milling company,
asking for a V at the intersection of
the Willmar & Sioux Fal.s, and the
Burlington, Cedar Rapids, and North
ern roads, near Jaspar, in Pipestone
county. The petitioners set forth that
the Willmar & Sioux Falls road is a
part of the Great Northern system,
and by that means is in a position to
handle much grain, flour, wood, live
stock and other products, and that the j
Burlington, Cedar Rapids and North- :
crn goes through a rich territory in j
lowa in the east and south, and like
wise handles many of the above men- I
Honed products. Therefore the peti
tioners urge the necessity of an order
for some pioper facilities of transferr
ing these from one iine to another
where the lines intersect. The com
.v.;,.j-.*o n i ia s sent notice of the com
plaint o the roads concerned.
Word was received from the com
plainant, jn the case of Babcock Bros.
& Camjbell against the Minneapolis
& St. L>uis road to secure a site for
a grain cie i£ Va tor at New Richland, in
Wasecr county, that the road had
agreedto gratify the wishes of its pa
trons t that point, and the complaint
was a cording! y wiped off the books
of tb commission.
Tb. rather unique request of the peo
ple of Emmons for a station on the
Minneapolis & St. Louis will be consid
ers at a hearing, the date for which
._ks been fixed by the commission for

JOBBERS WILL AGT
THREATENED ACTIOX OF THE
WISCOXSIX CENTRAL RECEIVES
CALLS FOR DECISIVE ACTION.
COMMITTEE REQUESTS AN OFFI
CIAL OUTLINE OF JUST WHAT
XOT THE FIRST EXPERIENCE.
Believed the Officials oif the it uad

The contemplated "caling by the Wis
consin Central road of the going rate
for merchandise shipped from Chicago
j to the Twin Cities from 60 to 40 cents,
! news of which was given the St. Paul
and Minneapolis jobbers yesterday
through the medium of the Globe,
has been duly taken up by the Jobbers'
union, and while the members of that
body appreciate the fact that some de
cisive action is called for, and in the
near future they rest assured that the
matter will be handled without undue
commotion or the serious disturbance
of their commercial interests.
When the Globe's story was read
yesterday morning those jobbers who
recalled the action on the part of the
Wisconsin Central people, a matter of
a year ago, recognized the significance
of it, and little or no time was lost in
getting together the transportation
j committee of the Jobbers' union. This
was yesterday morning. Having had
no official notice of the intended reduc
tion of the Chicago rate, the jobbers
| appointed a committee to wait upon
j the local representatives of the Wis
j consin Central with a request for de-
I tailed information as to the meaning
and significance of the reduction to be
This information, it is expected, wiil
be furnished without delay. Th<*
wholesalers, while loath to discuss the
matter until more is known about the
exact situation, express the belief that
neither the Wisconsin Central nor any
other road will insist on taking any
step such as that mentioned, unless it
will result in some material advantage
to the company. They are hopeful of
being able to show in this instance, as
it is said was done before, that a re
duction of the Chicago rate to the
Twin Cities, which would place the
Chicago and Milwaukee wholesalers 20
cents nearer the territory now occupied
by St. Paul and Minneapolis jobbers,
will not be to the advantage of the
Wisconsin Central line. The jobbers
who were seen yesterday on the sub
ject refuse to consider it possible that
there will be the slightest reduction,
but the gossip is that, since the Wis-
I consin Central before contemplated a
I similar reduction and did not put it
I into effect, the Twin City merchants
have been giving the road a fair share
of the business coming up here via
Chicago or Milwaukee, although, as
will be readily seen, the bulk of the
merchandise is shipped -by lake and
rail from the East at a rate lower than
via Chicago. Little doubt is expressed
but that when the matter is gone into
thoroughly nothing will be done which
will result to the detriment of the
commercial interests of the two cities,
j St. Paul and Minneapolis.

CAUGHT A SHARK.
Fishermen Trap, If 'ln a Net and Drag
Martin Preston, 7.the fisherman about
Curtis bay, caught a live shark in his
seine yesterday afternoon In the Pata
psco, near the Qtiararftine station. It
measured a little: more' than eight feet,
and, besides giving Mr, Preston and his
assistants a lively .tussle, tore up nearly
200 feet of his seine, says the Baltimore
Sharks are rare in the Patapsco, and
when Mr. Preston saw that it was a
real live one he made up his mind to
land it alive, and was successful only
after one of the hardest fights of his
The shark, which evidently followed
some ship up the bay, became tangled
in the net, which was set out near the
shore and staked. The fishermen notic
ed an unusual commotion out toward
the end of the seine, and supposed they
had struck a big "school" of flsh, which
would "net" them a big check from
some wholesale dealer.
They were surprised to flnd the
shark. A stout rope was made fast to
tho big sea fish's tail, and it was tow^
ed ashore at the old brass foundry,
near Stone House Cove, and there se
curely anchored. The news soon spread
through the village and South Balti
more, and last night the Curtis Bay
cars of the Consolidated company were
crowded with people, eager to see the
curiosity, which was kept on exhibi
tion until late last night, its ugly
looking body fairly glisening in the
moonlight, and its tail keeping up a
constant struggle for liberty.
THE CAKE WALK
Was Formely n Marriaße Ceremony
Among- the Plantation Negroes,
The cake walk proper had its origin
among the French negroes of Louisi
ana more than a century ago, says the
Chicago Chronicle. There is little
doubt that it is an offshoot of some
one of the old French country dances.
It resembles several of them in form.
From New Orleans it spread over the
entire South and thence to the North.
It was found of convenience to the
plantation negroes. They were not
wedded by license, and it was seldom
that the services of a preacher were
called ln. At a cake walk a man
might legitimately show his preference
for a woman and thus publicly claim
her for wife. In effect the cake walk
was not different from the old Scotch
marriage, which required only public
acknowledgment from the contracting
parties. So this festival became in
some sense a wooing, an acceptance or
rejection and a ceremony. This ex
plains its popularity with the blacks,
outide of its beauties, with the ac
companiment of music, which is com
petent at all times to command negro
support. Cake-walking has improved
as do most things that are constantly
practiced. It has lost its old signifi
cance in the South. Negroes now get
married, when they marry at all, in
white folks' fashion. It has became
however, a pantomimic dance. Prop
erly performed it is a beautiful one.
The cake is not much of a prize,
though the negro has a sweet tooth.
Secret: off' the Condition-* Repaired to
Grow It Has Been Sdvert.
The secret of raising ginseng has boen dis
covered at last. It is being grown upon Mis
souri soil aud cultivated by a Missouri farm
er, says the St. Louis Republic. China has
an unlimited demand for the ginsqag root,
and because of its scarcity pays thenansome
price of $2.50 for a single pound of it. Here
tofore tl.e market has been supplied from cer
tain mountain sections, where the herb
grows wild. Repeated attempts to cultivate it
have proved a failure. But, according to
Waldo Parks, a guest at the Laclede hotel,
Spencer Brown, a farmer down in Texas
county, is cultivating an acre of ginseng. It
matures in six years. From the product ot
that acre he expects to realize the modest
sum of $20,iX10. Ho will limit the product
so as to keep the price up.
Mr. Browu says that ginseng flourishes in
rich limestone soil, sraded from the sun. It
requires IS months to germinate and six years
for full growth. He is making no secret of
the discoverery, but explains its mysteries
to any one.
By the Chinese ginseng is considered a
medicinal ingredient of wonderful powers.
A liquor is distilled from it which is sup
posed to cure ail diseases. They have never
been able to fi-d the secret cf its cultcre
and have depended upon the wild roots found
here and there, for their supply.

SflY SHE IS AbltfE
MRS. LUETGERT SEEN BY THREE
WITNESSES AFTER THE AL
WOMAN AT KENOSHA, WIS.,
NOW IDENTIFIED AS THE WIFE OF
THE ACCUSED SAUSAGE
DAY FILLED WITH SENSATIOnTsT
Poiiee Charged hy Defense With In
.tlmidatlng Witnesses— Court
Lays Down the Law.
CHICAGO, Sept. 23.— Viewed from
various standpoints, today's proceed
ings" in the Luetgert murder trial were
the most remarkable that have oc
curred within three days. In the face
of the sensational circumstances evi
dence that has been produced to prove
that Mrs. Louise Luetgert met death
in her husband's sausage factory on
May 1, three witnesses testified today
that they saw the woman alive on
May 3 and 4. One of these witnesses
talked to her, and believed from a de
scription and photograph of Mrs. Luet
gert that the woman he saw was Mrs.
Luetgert. This witness was Mat J.
Sholley, a barkeeper at the Hotel Ma
ple, Kenosha, Wis. He said that he
saw a strange woman at the Hotel Ma
ple on the evening of May 3. He
talked with her nearly ten minutes.
She asked to be directed to the farm
of one Mueller in the neighborhood,
but, as no one seemed to know of such
a person, the woman left. The follow
ing day Sholley again saw the woman.
He described her general appearance
and her clothing and identified a pho
tograph of Mrs. Luetgert as the wom
an he saw.
On cross-examination by State's At
torney Deneen, Sholley at first fixed
the weight of the woman he saw at
130 or 140 pounds. Then he hesitated —
said he got mixed vp — and remarked
that the woman weighed 115 to IIS
pounds — which was about Mrs. Luet
• gert's weight. This hesitation and
correction was made much of by the
prosecution, which intimated that
Sholley had forgotten the weight that
had probably been told him at first.
Policeman Henry Feldshaw, of Ke
nosha, Wis., testified that he saw a
strange woman in the police station
of his town on May 3. The witness
said he afterwards saw the woman
at the Hotel Maple and the following
day at the railway station. He de
scribed the woman as a blonde, and
said she wore a sailor hat and slippers.
One of the slippers she wore was found
in the police station after she had left.
The witness identified the picture of
Mrs. Luetgert as closely resembling
the woman he say/.
William J. Grunsten, a clerk in the
Grant hotel, Kenosha, identified tlie
protograph as the picture of a woman
he saw in his hotel on May 3. He
said she came into the hotel and re
mained ten minutes and left. He de
scribed the woman and corroborated
the evidence of the other witnesses.
Emma Shimpke came to the court
room in the afternoon to hear Rosa
Gleich impeach her evidence given on
Wednesday. She was fighting mad
when she heard herself made out a
falsifier. Attorney Phalen discovered
her presence in the room and called
her to the witness stand. When asked
if she had not told Rosa Gleich she
had lied on the witness stand, the wit
"I do not remember."
"Did you not tell Harry Fiedler you
lied when you said you saw Mr. and
Mrs. Luetgert May 1?"
"I do not remember."
"Did you not tell P.osa Gleich you did
not see Mr. and Mrs. Luetgert the
night of May 1?"
"I may have said so."
Mrs. Mattie Scherer, the last witness
of the day, testified positively that
Emma Schimpke toid her that the tes
timony the Schimpke girl had given on
the witness stand was untrue.
The trial opened today with a sen
sational intimation by ex-Judge Vin
cent that the police were intimidating
the witnesses of the defense. Ex- Judge
Vincent, scon after court opened, asked
that the jury be excluded while he
made a statement to the court. After
the jury had retired, ex- Judge Vincent,
with indignation in his tones and force
in his declaration, said:
"If the court please, there is strong
reason tc believe that the police are
interfering with witnesses for the de
fense, and trying to intimidate them.
I do not say absolutely that this is
true, bue the indications point almost
directly to that conclusion. I desire an
order of court, prohibiting such action
on the part of the police or the pros
"Why not make the Injunction cover
both sides?" suggested State's Attor
| ney Deneen.
"The court does not require instruc
tions from any of the attorneys en
gaged." sharply responded Judge Tut
"I will make the charge that wit
nesses for the defense have been inter
fered with and harrassed by the po
lice," said Attorney Phalan, of the de
"If that is true, there should be an
investigation," remarked State's Attor
ney Deneen. "If ar.y witnesses for the
defense have been intimidated, it has
been done without knowledge of the
state, and we do not approve of it."
•"I will say now. for the benefit of
the police," said Judge Tuthill, "with
severity in his tone, "that if I hear of
any interference with witnesses on
either side of the case, I will deal with
the offender, and my dealing will not
be gentle. This defendant has rights
here and they will be protected."
"Why not order an investigation,"
queried State's Attorney Deneen.
"Mr. Deneen, this court will make the
order it deems proper. That will do."
When the jury was recalled, Rosa
Gleich was placed on the witness stand
for cross examination. This witness
was called yesterday to impeach the
evidence of "Emma Schimpke, given on
the direct examination by the prose
cution. She stated that she was with
Emma Schimpke on the night of May
1 until 11 o'clock, and remained with
the Schimpke girl until the latter en
tered her home. She denied emphatic
ally that either of them had seen Luet
gert and his wife leave the latter's res
idence and go to the sausage factory,
as described. She denied also that
Gotlieba Schimpke, who testified that
she also saw Leutgert and his wife,
was with Emma and herself that
night. Furthermore, the witness said
that Emma Schimpke, since she had
testified in the case, had admitted to
the witness, in the presence of others,
that she had lied. According to the
witness, Emma Schimpke said she had
lied because Gotlieba, her weak-mind
ed sister, had got her into the Luetgert
case — and she would not testify on
Luetgert's side. The witness also stat
ed that Emma Schimpke tried to get
her to tell the same story Emma had
told to save the latter's reputation.
State's Attorney Deneen went at this
witness with one of the most remark
able cross-examinations ever heard in
the criminal court. His questions were
fired at her with the rapidity of a re
peating rifle worked to the linoi*. •* I

witted and replied promptly for a
while, but __he was not as resourceful
as the lawyer, and after half an hour
she became confused, and her face
blazed with excitement. Then she be
gan to contradict herself as to impor
tant particulars and made corrections,
which weakened her evidence.
Harry Fiedler corroborated Rosa
Gleich's story, and asserted that the
mother of the Schimpke girl compelled
the latter to tell the story she did.
George Scholey, a bartender at the
Maple house, in Kenosha, Wis., testi
fied that he saw Mrs. Luetgert on the
night of May 3. He said she came into
his saloon weary and with bedraggled
skirts, as if she had walked far. She
Inquired the direction to the house of
a farmer named Mueller. The follow
ing day, Scholey said, he saw the
woman again at Spring Bluff, a sub
urb of Kenosha. Scholey was not ac
quainted with Mrs. Luetgert, but from
the description of her, he was positive
the woman he saw was she.
SEW MEDICAL DISCOVERY.
A Positive Cure for Dyspepsia.
This may read as though we were
putting it a little strong because it is
generally thought by the majority of
people that Dyspepsia in its chronic
form is incurable, or practically so. But
we have long since shown that Dyspep
sia is curable, nor is it such a difficult
matter as at first appears.
The trouble with Dyspeptics is that
they are continually dieting, starving
themselves, or going to opposite ex
tremes or else deluging the already
over burdened stomach with "bitters,"
"after dinner pills," etc., which invari
ably increase the difficulty even if in
some cases they do give a slight tem
porary relief. Such treatment of the
stomach simply make matters worse.
What the stomach wants is a rest. Now
how can the stomach becoyie rested,
recuperated and at the same time the
body nourished and sustained?
This is the great secret and this is
also the secret of the uniform success
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. This is
a comparatively new remedy, but its
success and popularity leaves no doubt
as to its merits.
The Tablets will digest the food any
way, regardless of condition of stom
The sufferer from Dyspepsia accord
ing to directions is to eat an abundance
of good, wholesome food and use the
tablets before and after each meal and
the result will be that the food will be
digested no matter how bad your dys
pepsia may be, because as before stat
ed, the tablets will digest the food even
if the stomach is wholly inactive. To il
lustrate our meaning plainly, if you
take 1,800 grains of meat, eggs or ordi
nary food and place it in a temperature
of 9S degrees, and put with it one of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets it will di
gest the meat or eggs almost as per
fectly as if the meat was enclosed with
in the stomach.
The stomach may be ever so weak
yet these tablets will perform the work
cf digestion and the body ar.d brain
will be properly nourish-.-d and at the
same time a radical, lasting cure of
dyspepsia will be made because the
much abused stomach will be given,
to some extent, a much needed rest.
Your druggist will tell you that of the
many remedies advertised to cure dy
spepsia none of them has give-n so
complete and general satisfaction as
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and not
least in importance in these hard times
is the fact that they are also the cheap
est and give the most good for the

THIEF IN BROADCLOTH
Caught While Ransacking Rcoms in
a Paris House.
A tenant of one of the finest apart
ment houses of the Rue de la fllen
faisance, noticed that the door lead
ing to the rooms occupied by a well
known Paris club man — M. Mage — was
open, although he knew that his neigh
bor had left town to be gone for some
time, says the Philadelphia Record.
He entered, and saw a man in fault
less attire, a white flower in his but
tonhole, busy opening bureau drawers
and putting in his pockets all portable
valuables he could find. The observer
called the janitor, and the well-dressed
burglar was taken in the act. At the
police station he gave his name, that
of a noble Polish family, and claimed
as his residence a house in the Avenue
dcs Champs Elysees, in the most fash
ionable quarter of Paris. In the elegant
rooms which he occupied a full kit of
burglar's tools were found, and, among
other things,* there was a complete
list of wealthy Parisians, club mem
bers and families, who at the present
time are away from town, and whose
houses furnished an excellent field cf
operation for the well-dressed burglar.
Some twenty years ago a series of
burglaries, committed by a band of
thieves dressed in the heighth of
fashion, excited considerable attention
in Paris, and "when the gang was at
last caught the surprising fact came
out that some well known society men
and sons of the best families of Paris
composed the band of robbers It ap
pears that this class of thieves has
not entirely died out.
