The jcint indictment charging James Dough erty and Richard Gahagan, with indecent B<s beuK W2= nolled yesterday on motion of the county attorney. This is the case in which Stella Maslow: ka, the complaining witness, disappeared after the trial of Daughterty had begun. As only elevrn jurors had been 6ecvjrrd. the prosecution dropped the case until the girl could be found. She put in an appearance, about two weeks later, and said ehe had been with friends in Minneapolis. Ccunty Attorney Anderson subsequently learned that Stella had been paid $100 to go away. The ccunty attorney suc^eedeJ in inducing Stella's mother and sister to hand the money to him, whereupon Mr. Anderson turned It over to the county treasurer for safe kesping. Since th?t time the ounty at torney says he has ascertained that Stella Ins eisned an affidavit that will render the con viciion of Dougherty and Gahagan Impos sible. Consequently he asked that the indict ment be nolled. Mr. Anderson instructed the county treasurer to pay the $100 to Georfc'* Eucld, Stella's attorney. ( lvii ji.il "With Larceny.

BICKEL AGAIN On Triul on the Last of All Indict nientd \«.iliist Him. The trial of William F. Bickel on the last Indictment hanging over his head, that charging him with the larceny of the Nusser notes, began yesterday forenoon. There were few spectators present, the case, apparently, attracting little interest. W. H. McDonald appeared as counsel for Mr. Bickel, and County Attorney Anderson sat in the prosecutor's chair. The work of securing a jury began about 11 a. m., and so rapidly did it progress that when court ad journed for the noon recess ten jurors had been obtained. In the afternoon the jury box was filled in less than ten minutes. The complete jury comprises thf: following citizens: George W. Dilley, Charles L. Englin. Frank D. Freeman, Homer H. Hoyt, Abraham A. Davis, A. P. Hendrickson, A. M. Lambie, Herbert R. George, M. J. Klaus. Joseph M. Hanson, Charles Hallowell, E. N. Kirk. Owing to the fact that Attorney McDonald was afflicted with a sore throat, rendering it difficult for him to speak, court adjourned at his request until 10 a. m. today. Mr. Anderson suggested to the court that as John W. Nusser Sr. could net talk Eng lish, an interpreter ought to be provided. Mr. McDonald did not think an interpreter j would be necessary, but the court appointed Charles Passavant interpreter. In all probability today will witness the be ginning and the end of the trial proper. It | is understood that the county attorney will I place Mr. Nusser, the complaining witness, on the stand, and that Mr. Nusser will tes tify in accordance with the statements con tained In his nffldavit. the substance of which the Globe has already published.

GRIFFIN WAS SERENE, But the Pistol Shot Wan Back of Hlh Saloon. A pistol shot at the entrance to the alley leading to the rear entrance of "Mayor""' Griffin's saloon, 33 East Seventh street, sliort- I ly after 9 o'clock last evening, created con j siderable excitement in the vicinity, and I crowds of people rushed toward the sound ! with Officers Dave Hennessey, Swenson and ' O'Neill to ascertain what was the trouble ' The alleyway was soon choked with curious i people, but no victim of a bullet could be found, and the investigation of the police men failed to throw much light on the af fair further than to find a rumor that there had been a fight in the "mayor's office " I and Ihat the combatants had adjourned to ! ! the alley to settle the matter. It was said ! | that one of the men concerned was badly j I beaten by his antagonist, but he cauld not be ! I found. The officers visited the saloon to inquire i into the affair, but were promptly and em- ! phatically turned down by Mayor Griffin. He i declared that it was a mistake to suppose ' that any such breach of the peace as a fight ; had taken place in his saloon, and he re- ! gretted that there should be the least sus- j picion that a vulgar fisticuff, such as Mayor ! Doran allowed to come off in his office some I time ago, should have taken place in his | "office." He really knew nothing of any trouble, the "mayor" said, and had heard nothing whatever of any pistol shot. LOCAL NEWS NOTES. Mrs Mary A.

HAVE THE RECORDS TRANSFER OF AN IMPORTANT AC TION FROM CANADIAN TO V. S. COURTS INVOLVING RAILWAY BONDS. MORPHY, EWING & GILBERT WILL FILE THE ACTION IN A FEW DAYS. OREAT WESTERN DEFENDANT. ET<»r«-i«rn Corporal inn Refuse*) to Ac cept a Settlement Suggested by the Railway Company. In the course of the next few days an Important suit will be filed in the United States circuit court for the dis trict of Minnesota against the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway com pany, the Metropolitan Trust company, of New York city, and Robert H. Ben sen, of London, England. The plain tiffs are the liquidators or receivers of the Commercial bank, of Winnipeg, Man. Messrs. Morphy, Ewing and Gilbert, of St. Paul, are the attorneys for the plaintiffs. The suit is brought to recover judg ment against the Chicago. St. Paul & Kansas City Railway company on overdue coupons amounting to about $9,000, which the Commercial bank re fuses to exchange for stock of the de fendant railway company, and also to compel the Metropolitan Trust com pany and R. H. Benson to begin fore closure proceedings under the mortgage deed, and, in the event of their refus- J ing, to have new trustees appointed and the trusts enforced. The action is the result of a series of deals, some what complicated in their aspect. E. P. Morphy, of counsel for plaint iffs, outlined the history of the matter to a Globe reporter yesterday, in substance as follows: In 18S8, the Minnesota Northwestern Railroad company was reorganized un- j der the name of the Chicago, St. Paul j & Kansas City Railway company, which latter company took over the franchises and all the assets of the for mer company. On Jan. 1, 1889, the Kansas City railway company extend- j ed a general mortgage to the Metropol- j ltan Trust Company of New York, and j Robert H. Benson, of London. For the j purpose of paying off and retiring all j the bonds which had been issued by the Minnesota Northwestern Railroad com pany, the Kansas City company issued i certain gold mortgage bonds which ] they secured by the general mortgage j mentioned. The Commercial Bank of j Winnipeg became the owner of forty- j five of these gold mortgage bonds of ! the par value of $1,000 each. Subse- j quently, the Commercial bank became \ insolvent, and liquidators or receivers \ were duly appointed to wind up Its af- ! fairs. Among the assets of the bank i were these gold mortgage bonds, which ' the liquidators now hold with 405 in- i terest coupons of the value of $20 each, j all of which are overdue. In the fall of 1892 a reorganization of the i Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway | company was effected and under the reorgan- i ization scheme, the parties who controlled the | Kansas City company, incorporated under the j laws of Illinois under the name of the Chi- j eago Great Western Railway company. This j last company leased from the Kansas City company its rolling stock and franchises and j is now operating the road as a lessee. As a part of the reorganization scheme, the Chi cago Great "Western agreed to assume all the | rolling stock lease warrants and all the gold i mortgage bonde, and also agreed to exchange ! for those bonds stock of the Chicago Great Western. At the time the last reorganization scheme j was approved of, a meeting of the stock- I holders of the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City company was held in London and an | assessment was levied on the holders of the I gold mortgage bonds. The holders agreed to exchange their bonds for stock in the Chi cago Great Western. On Nov. 2. 1892. the Chicago Great Western I made a trust deed to the Manhattan Trust company, of New York, to secure the holders of the stocA When the bonds were sur rendered tb^3' were not cancelled, but they all passed under the control of the Chicago Great Western Railway company, which com- I pany now holds all the bonds of the Kansas City company except the 45 bonds in the possession of the liquidators of the Commer cial bank, of Winnipeg. "The Chicago Great Western,"continued Mr. Morphy." has offered to give its stock in ex change for those forty-five bonds, but the liquidators of the bank refuse to accept it. Accordingly, on Jan. 6, last, the liquidators applied to the court of Queen's Rench for in structions as to what course to take, and the court ordered them to commence the suit against the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway company, the .Metropolitan Trust company, of New York; and R. H. Benson, of London, to enforce the payment of the over due coupons and also to enforce the provis ions of the trust mortgage securing the bonds now held by the liquidators. "The papers in the case." concluded Mr. Morphy. "have just arrived from Winnipeg, including copies of all the trust, deeds and the report of that meeting in London. The mat ter is receiving my. close .mention, and the action will be besun at once." ANTI-SCALPING BILL. The Sherman Substitnte Is to Be Reported. WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.— The house com mittee on commerce today voted to report the i'lti-scalplng bill, in the form of a sub stitute prepared by Mr. Sherman, of New York. The substitute follows the general lines of the original bill, with some addi tional features. It places a penalty on rail road officers who deal with scalpers. Here tofore the plan has been to hold the cor poration liable, but the new provision ex tends the liability to officials, making them subject to a misdemeanor, with fine or im prisonment on conviction. A new paragraph MRS. PETERSON'S STORY. I have suffered with, womb trouble over fifteen years. I had inflammation, enlargement and displacement of the womb. The doctor wanted me to take treat ments, but I had just begun taking my husband ' - BSSfcl stantly, also headache, and * was so dizzy. I had heart trouble, it seemed as though my heart was in my throat at times choking me. I could not walk around and I could not lie down, for then my heart would beat so fast I would feel as though I was smothering. I had to sit up in bed nights in order to breathe. I was so weak I could not do anything. I have now taken several bottles of Lydia E. Pinkhaurs Vegetable Com pound, and used three packages of Sanative Wash, and can say I am perfectly cured. I do not think I could have lived long if Mrs. Pink ham's medicine had not helped me.— Mrs. Joseph Petebson, 513 East St., Warren, Pa. i is inserted in section 2, making it unlawful for general passenger agents to supply tick ets to other than authorized ticket agents. Another substitute provision provides that unused tickets shall be redeemed at any time within one year. Any company failing to redeem a ticket is made liable in a civil action to a penalty of $100 in excess of the redemption money on the ticket. Mr. Sher man will write the report and present it to morrow. ROADS TELL THEIR STORY. Evidence Takei by the South Da kota Commission. CHICAGO, Jan. 18.— The railroad commis sioners of South Dakota took evidence today at the offices of tie CWcago, Milwaukee & St. Paul In the case of a petition filed by the shippers of their state for the reduction of freight rates, i The roads are fighting against the proposed reduction with all their power, and are basing their fight on the assertion that any further reduction of freight rates will be ruinous to them. The evidence heard today was all given by the railroads, and was along that line. TEXAS RATES RATTLED. The Western Lines Are Involved In the Scramble. CHICAGO, Jan. 18.— Passenger rates from points in the territory of the Western Pas senger association to Texas are in a bad state of demoralization, and as matters now stand there are few trains run into that ter ritory at the present time that are paying the expenses of operation. The demoraliza tion is laid by the association lines at th" door of the Pittsburg & Gulf, against which all sorts of charges are made by its com petitors. One charge made against it is that it has been carrying passengers for nothing after they had been secured by another road It is said to subordinate all things to its policy of building up Port Arthur, and the I Missouri, Kansas & Texas, which is as deep ly interested in that territory as the Pitts burg & Gulf, is making a hard fight to re tain its traffic. The result is that the north ern connections of both roads are suffering, but are powerless in the matter. BY WAY OF EDMONTON. Alaaka Party From Indianapolis Pauses Through St. Paul.

HANNAY TREATED HIM WELL., HE SAYS, TO A CER TAIN TIME, THEN EVERYTHING WAS CHANGED. The Defendant in the Court Martial Spends the Entire Day on the Stand. Private William Eckhardt, who Is be ing tried before a general court mar tial at Fort Snelling for lnsubordina j tion, was on the witness stand all day ! yesterday, and his cross-examination by Judge Advocate Kennedy was not finished when the court adjourned in the afternoon. At the request of the defendant's counsel, E. E. McOonald, the court adjourned until Thursday morning, when Eckhardt's examina tion will be concluded and Capt. Han nay again be put on the stand to tes tify upon a number of points. At the opening of the morning ses sion of the court defendant's attorney asked permission to call a witness out of the regular order, which the presl i dent of the court granted. Private j John Jacobson, of Company D, Third j infantry, was then sworn, and testi fied that he was present in the barber shop when Lippert came in and talked of the trial with a number of people in the shop. He had heard him talk about the matter for five or six min utes, and heard him say that Eckhardt was no good, and witness said from the conversation he thought that Lip pert wanted Eckhardt to get the worst of the trial. The defense tried to get witness to testify to what else Lippert said about the matter, but witness could remember nothing else. The defense then called another pri vate, who testified that he also had heard portions of the conversation in the barber shop. In Eckhardt's testi mony, as given below, the defense tried to show that Lippert had a personal feeling against the accused. Private Eckhardt entered a complete denial of the charges of insubordina tion, claiming that he was neither in solent or defiant, that he had always behaved himself since he entered the service. In opening, Mr. McDonald, his at torney, upon direct examination, took him back to the Caldwell affair. Eck hardt testified that shortly after Capt. Hannay had called him to his tent and asked him to subscribe to the paper •which contained charges against Cald well, there was a summary court mar tial at which Caldwell was discharged from the service. Eckhardt said he was the only witness, in fact one of the participants, and yet he was not called as a witness. Caldwell after wards brought the matter up before the board of officers, who investigated the charges and granted him a straight discharge, which entitled him to enlist again. Eokhardt also testified that he had gone into the orderly room shortly after the trial and that Lippert had said that Capt. Hannay was warm in the collar, and wild, and accused everv non-ccmml?sioned officer of having pur jured themselves in their testimony in the Caldwell case. Eckhardt testified at considerable length as to Lippert's threatening to get even with him some time if he said anything to the captain about what he had said about the cap tain being mad. Eckhardt claimed that he told Lippert that he would tell the truth regardless of the consequen ces. Sergeant Martlick had said he was going to report to Capt. Hannay Lippert's statements. Eckhardt in his testimony said he thought Martlick did report the matter to Capt Hannay, but nothing ever came of it. Eckhardt then related the incident of the drill Dec. 21, upon which the specifi cations against the accused are based. He denied that he was insolent or de fiant. He explained at length his ac tions on that morning. He was in the orderly room when the company fell in for the second time, and was about a half minute late in getting to ranks. Capt. Hannay said to him, "Eckhardt you are late." "No captain, I am not late; I fell in when the company first fell in," witness said. Capt. Hannay said in reply to this, "What, do you mean to call me a liar?" To which" he replied. "No, captain, Ido not, but you have been misinformed about me." The accused claimed in his testimony that Capt. Hannay arraigned him twice for being drunk, but that he had denied it on both occasions. Eckhardt then illustrated the difference in the drill by Capt. Hannay and by Lieut. By roade. He thought Lieut. Byroade was correct in his direction of the drill, be cause when he told the captain about the difference in drill, captain said something to the sergeant, and the I drill was afterwards gone through un j der the direction of the sergeant, after | the fashion of the lieutenant. Eck hardt's testimony as to the conversa tion in the orderly room differed ma , terially from the evidence given by | witnesses for the prosecution in many particulars. His statement of the facts connected with the Incident of the morning of Dec. 21 was quite exhaus tive. Eckhardt said after he had refused to make out his complaint in writing, he • called on C. D. O'Brien, an attorney in St. Paul, and Mr. O'Brien advised him ! not to give the captain the names of I his witnesses, as it was hard enough j for a private to prove anything against the officers, no matter how good his case might be. Eckhardt told his ad visor he. did not like that kind of talk I about his officers, and left the office. I He next called upon Mr. McDonald, I who arranged to meet him the next day and draw up the proper papers in the matter. The next morning, when he j applied for another forty-eight-hour pass, he told Sergeant Martlick that he was going to consult with a lawyer. Capt. Hannay got wind of it and order [ ed him under arrest at once. Eokhardt claims he was refused the priv ilege of telephoning to his at j torney, and was kept in the j guard house without being able to get word to Mr. McDonald from Dec. 22 until Jan. 3, when he managed to send a telegram to Mr. McDonald. Upon direct examination, Eckhardt testified that he had never been arrest ed before, and that Capt. Hannay was a good captain to him until he refused to testify against Caldwell; since then things had changed, and Capt. Hannay had showed feeling against him re peatedly. Judge Advocate Kennedy took the witness after the court convened In the afternoon, and went over every portion of the testimony of the accused. The court adjourned until 11 o'clock Thursday, when Eckhardt's cross-ex animation will be resumed. Officers on the Carpet. The hearing before the mayor of charges brought against Patrolmen J.

PARKWAYOfISWIT PARK BOARD TAKES ACTION LOOK. ING TO IMPROVING THE BOULEVARD. LEXINGTON TO THE RIVER. LONG DISCUSSION ABOIT PROPOSED AGREEMENT WITH STREET RAILWAY COMPANY FOR EXTENDING COMO AYE. LINE. President Wbeeloek Will Submit the I'niiioMd Form of Agree ment to the Company. The park board, at its adjourned reg ular meeting last night, devoted most of the time to discussing the form of an agreement to be entered into be tween the board and the St. Paul City Railway company, with reference to granting the company the right of way to run Its proposed extension of the Como avenue line through Como park. In the nature of the case no final ac tion could be taken, as the proposed agreement must be first submitted to the street railway company and a conference had before matters can take definite shape. The agreement or reso lutions granting the desired right of way through Como park contains numerous conditions. chief among which are the following: The company will be required to build bridges over the park roadways, as no grade crossings will be permit ted; the company must maintain and operate 187 arc lights-that is, 100 more than are at present in use In the park —and the company will also be re quired to erect a suitable street rail way station, to cost not less than $2,000 and to expend $2,500 for the grading of Midway boulevard. On motion of Commissioner Hamm President Wheelock was authorized to confer with the street railway com pany and submit the proposed form of agreement to its, officers. As soon as the latter come to a conclusion re garding the conditions they will ac cept, they will be invited to submit their proposition to the park board. Commissioner Wheelock then brought up the subject of Summit avenue bou levard, which the park board desires to have declared a parkway In order that it may provide a suitable road way, care for the- trees, etc. Superintendent of Parks Nussbau mer said that the trees were greatly in need of proper care, and that, if the present condition of things was al lowed to continue, there would be no trees left on the boulevard in five years. The difficulty confronting the board in this matter was, so Commissioner TVheelock said, to be relieved, if the boulevard was declared a highway, from paying the assessments for locai improvements, which are now paid by abutting there-on. After some discus sion, Commissioner Wheelock drafted the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: Resolved, That Uio honorable the common council is respectfully requested to declare that portion of Summit avenue, between Lex ington avenue and the Mississippi river, a j parkway, and place the snme under the su ! pervision of the board of park com in is si in ers, subject to the casement of the public and of the owners of The private property abutting thereon — but not in any way re leasing tho said owners of private properly from the obligation to pay the cost of Im provements which the common council may determine should be paid by assessment in the usual way. The superintendent of parks was in structed to confer with the secretary of the water board and request said board to cause to be flooded Lake Iris and the lake in Merrlam Park, so as to make the same available for skating. The resolution condemning a strip of land 200 feet wide, extending from Hamline to Snelling avenue, was for mally adopted. The strip, when com pleted as a parkway, will be known ns Midway boulevard.
