ficers were all out watching the move

and suggestions wherever necessary
and lending aid in ihe general dressing

not get a touctb. of stage fright, the
people of the state who see them today

Aiiioiik the UiniM-so'iiiis.
CHICKAMAUGA, Gr., July 26—(Spe
cial.)—Unless peace negotiations inter
vene the Fourteenth Minnesota expects
to be on the way to the front before the
close of the present week. In event cf
their abandoning Camp Thomas it is
said that the Fifteenth Minnesota will
take their place, and be next in order
for duty. The Fourteenth is extreme
ly anxious to move, and t'fieie would be
to the members of that regiment noth
ing more welcome than orders to break
camp.
Rumors of peace overtures have
reached the camp, and the Minnesota
men ai^e beginning to be tesigned to
getting no nea er active duly. The ofll
cr-rs iere naturally elated at the news
that the American forces have carried
the day in the brief period that the
war has been on, but the rank and
file would have liked a little more ac
tivity.
Capt. Patter-son yesterday returned
j from a ten days' leave which he spent
I at Princeton, Minn.
The Third brigade. First division,
First corps, commmded by Gem. Fred
Gram, was expected to leave Camp

Peace talk dots not curb activity, and
the troops are as hard at work today,
drilling, as though the war was just
about to begin instead of probably
tearing the close.

CAM*P GEORGE H. THOMAS. July 24— Our
kindergaiten in charge of Priva es Kowitj
and Hawi-eins is making mo3t satisfactory
progress. They leave their usual pow-wow s
every half hour from 7 a. m. to 11:30 p. m.
Private Woodbury has been promoted to
the rank of lance eorpiral, and Priva:e C. G.
Carlson to corporal. Private Woodbury i 3 a
son of the celebrated chief "Hole-in-f e-day '
It is rumored that the following promo
tions will shortly be announced :Lanc» Cor
poral Woodbury, to be corporal; Private H.
-M.-Guire, tj be lance cotpo.al. The beys ara
all congratulating Harry on his well de
served good luck.
First Sergeant Ernp; has been promoted to
tre rank of sergeant lieutenant, and has b?cn
assigned to Company I. This piomoilrn 1;
very popular among the boys as they all feel
he deserves it. His constant attention to
duty having aided largely in bringing I com
pany up to its present high state of pro
fie'ency.
Private Fireworks Groh has been re
lieved fiom duty as trumpeter at his own
re-cuest. After a good deal of pc: suasion
I Capt. Bacon has acceedsd to his reauest.
| The regiment 103e3 one of it? best trumpters,
but Company I gains a well drilled man.
At drees par; de tonight Regiment Adjutant
Winnie read tbe rinding of the court mar.lal
upon Private Tennyson, of Company B. Pri
vate Tennyson was found guilty of sleeping
on his Dcjt when at camp Johnston rifle
ranges. He was sentenced to seven days
imprisonment with hard labor and a fine of
?6 per month for six months. The court re
marked that this sentence was made light
because Tennyson was a recruit.
Th** kitchen, ln charge ef Privates SAitzrr,
Rowell and !g-o Is the pride of I company,
and the meals issued from the kitchen are
all clean and well cooked. In fac-t the kick
ers have taken to the high timbers.
Corn cob pipes being the fasuiDn and the
company arguing that ene had betr r be dead
than out of date, are all smoking cebs.
The "rookies"' tent is the attraction of th?
street. In fact they have decided that It is
necessary for such an attractive tent to have
a staff of its own. They have accordingly
secured the services of Dr. Torwick end
Clerk Sutejen. Both these men, although
having an international reputation, at great
personal sacrifice, have consented to take up
their residence in and devote all their brains
and energy to the "rookies" tent. The oc
cupants of this tent are Privates Sandalls,
Laws, Kalberg and. of course, Doc Torwick
and Chief Clerk Sutzen.
Our vagrant. Private Cox. is still with us.
So is Corporal McLaren. Corporal McLaren
t-as already worn out five pairs of No. lt
government shoes walking up and down the
company street — for his health.
Surgeon Maj. Cole Is rushed off his feet. He
says that the number of cases of squints he
has to treat in a day ls something appalling.
He ascribes this peculiar malady to the num
ber of promotions made lately, as he be
lieves the boys try to see the stripes on bath,
sides at once.
Sergeant J. S. Austin is laid up with a
slight illness, suposed to be brought on by a
box of dainties which he received from a
St. Paul young lady. Others ascribe this ill
ness to a want of exercise. Sitting in one's
tent all day and doing nothing but look at
a pretty young lady's picture may be pleas
ant, but it is not conducive to health. It
is slid that if a certain young lady of St.
Paul could see the correspondence Sergeant
Austin is receiving she would turn a pale
green hue. at least he thinks so.
Corporal Rake, commander-in-chief of the
water detail, ls in receipt of a very patri
otic pillow from <a St. Paul lady. Pillows
are supposed to be an aid to sleep. This Is
the exception that proves the rule.
Rumor No. 897.939 has just reached com
pany street. The rumor committee now em
braces the whole regiment. Rumor No. 987,960
has it that Sergeant Nash ls to be appointed
sergeant major. Company I would like to
see the promotion, except that all the boys
would hate to lose him. as Sergeant Nash
is one of the most popular sergeants ln the
regiment.
Corporal Arthur says "a mule is the easiest
horse there is to ride."
The boys always want Glob c's, and de
mand by far exceeds the supply.
The W. T. 81-ickwell Tobacco company
have earned the gratitude of the regiment by
distributing a large-sized package of their
celebrated "Bull Durham" tobacco to each
man. Tobacco is very scarce, and if friends,
instead of sending diinties which do the
men more harm than good, would send to
bacco, the boys would be both healthier and
better nleased.
Private Markowitz, the celebrated clog
dancer and contortionist, is still alive.
It is said the officers intend to have the
streets widened, in order to allow the heads
of some men to get between the lines of tents.
Private Brede has a beautiful collection of
military buttons, having one from every
regiment in the park.
Private Probst has just handed in rumor
087.961. saying we leave for Porto Rico oh
Wednesday. He- claims *50 for the news,
but we disallowed the claim as excessive.
He consented to receive a watch in full pay
ment. Watties are worth about $9 each here
at present.
Company I must have the clearest men ln
the regiment. Yesterday. Private Barnes and
today Private Foley were chosen colonel's or
derlies. This choice always goes to the clean
est man at guard mount and is considered
a great honor.
Last night the following promotions were
announced: Sergeant Cook to be first ser
geant: Private Edmund L. Howell to be
sergeant. These promotions appeared to be
popular among the men. judging from the
applause. Sergeant Cook certainly deserves
to be first sergeant and the men are all very
glad to see him in that responsible position.

SENATOR DAVIS RETICENT
HE BAFFLES INQUIRY AS TO
TREATY PROPOSALS
Chairman of the Senate Committee
on Foreign Relations Is Restrict
ed by a Sense of Delicacy lie-
Ni)les. Congress In Not in Session,
and It Is Largely President Mc-
Kinley's Business.
It was evident from the manner in
which Senator Davis refused to answer
categorical questions as to what he
thought would be the proceedure in
bringing a'l-out the proposed peace that
he had inside information from Wash
ington. The senator deelired to an
swer the question whether he had been
officially notified of the overture that
had been made. He said that, while
congress was not in session, the for
eign relations committee of the senate
could not act, as there was nothing to
act upon. He added that the presi
dent might ask some of the members
of the committee to confer with him.
The senator wfcs at his home and
was desirous of hearing what the press
bad to say about the proposed over
ture from Spain. When the telegram
was read to him he showed by his
■manner that it conveyed nothing new.
Asked what he thought of the pro
posal, coming from Spain, the sen
ator said:
"Peace is always desirable if it can
be had, of course, but I really have no
idea of what has l>een proposed."
"Do you know what the United
States will ask as a condition of go
ing into the matter of terms?" was
asked.
"I do not, and, if I did, I do not think
it would become me to say. I know
nothing, however, of the conditions."
"Have you any idea of what Spain
would propose as a basis for peace?"
"Isn't that another way of putting
the same question?" he asked.
"What method would probably be
taken to bring about the terms of the
peace — under the rules of precednce in
other affairs of the kind?"
"That is not easy to say," replied
Senator Davis. "There are many ways
of getting at the proposition. Spain
might send a representative to Wash
ington, or he might be sent to London
and meet our representative there. Or
this country might appoint a commis
sion and meet commissioners from
Spain on neutral ground."
"What has been the custom ln times
past, In the peace of 1814, for instance?"
"Well, we were represented at Ghent
by five commissioners, and the enemy
by the same number of men. On our
side I remember that Clay, Adams,
i Russell and Bayard were of the com- |
mission. They arranged the terms. In
the Mexican war Nicholas Triste was
the sole commissioner, but we were in
possession of the enemy's country. The*
Franco-Prussian war is hardly to be
taken as a precedent, for there is no
doubt that Thiers and Bismarck ar
ranged the peace while Paris was still
in the hands of the commune and the
country distraught by civil war— at
least, Paris was still in the hands at
the common enemy, the commune. The
Berlin convention is still another ex
ample of the various methods thut may
be pursued. It is difficult to say what
will be done now. It is entirely in the
hands of the president and his advisers.
I cannot indicate what the policy will
be, and, if I could, I probably would
not," and the senator closed the inter
view himself.
The questions of what would ba ask
ed In the way of indemnity and If this
country would hold the subjugated ter
ritory in Cuba and the Philippines, the
senator would not touch upon at all.
It may be assumed, though, that lie
will presently be called to Washington.
NIPPED IN THE~ BUD.
liocal Police Seem to Have Fore
stalled a Clever Thief.
Benjamin Dean, alias Sheeney Ben,
alias "Sheeney Kid," said to be one
Of the most youthful and at the same
time one of the cleverest pickpockets
known to the police of every large city
In the United States, was arrested yes
terday afternoon by Detectives Galvln
and Murnane. The pe>liee claim Dean
came to St. Paul from Chicago to ply
his criminal calling during the corner
stone laying festivities, anel he will be
kept In custody on the charge of va
grancy until the carnival is over.
The prisoner is but sixteen years of
age, and is saiid to work in the crowds
of an entertainment with an elderly
man or woman who "stalls" for him.
When attending to business, Dean, who
is small of stature and possesses a
bright face, is said to dress in short
trousers, with an entire get-up like a
lad out sight-seeing with his father
or mother. With the elder criminal.
either a man or a woman, who assists
in the game, he mingles with the crowd
and is said to pick pockets with an
adroitness equalled by few theivis.
Should be he caught with his hand in
a person's pocket, he feigns surprise,
laughs as the intended victim seizes
him by the neck, and informs the irate
Individual that he mistook him for his
father. The youth of the thief and
his apparent innocence generally re
sults In hi 3 release, hut. in ease the
person whom Dean has tned to "touch"
insists in handing him over to a po
lk-eman. Dean's elderly companion,
who follows him closely, comes to the
rescue. He claims that the boy is his^
son, whom he has missed ln the crowd.'
shakes the boy for lettlne go of his
coat tail, and then usuaiy succeeds
In mollifying the boy's captor, until ■
Dean is released.
Bean has been under arrest In every
city of importance in this country. His
home is !n Kansas City, but, since be
ginning his criminal career, he has
made his headquarters in Chicago. He
was arested at the Grand Army en
campment at Buffalo, N. T., a year
asro, and was recently under arrest in
Minneapolis. The local authorities arc -
congratulating themselves that D**an
was recognized and -.picked up before
ho pot a chance to work during the
