tion of the death of Mrs. Bauer said:
•Mrs. John G. Bauer died Dec. 21 at
this institution. Her husband was noti
fied when she was taken ill. and was
with her here the day before she died,
and remained with her until her death.
She died from uraemia, resulting from
chronic kidney disease. There was
also an enlargement of the glands of
the right side of the face. There was
no necessity for using force in control

was fed mechanically, and her teeth
were badly decayed. It is not at all

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 27.—Operators
Barber, Mason and Yost, police tele
phone operators, have been informed,
it is stated, that after Jan. 3 their serv
ices will no longer be required. The
removal of these three men will clean
out the police telephone office, but the
removal policy does not stop here, mhl
it is stated that the police department
will have a new set of jailers. Jailers !
McKenna and Bradley, of the centra]
station; Jailer Daly, of the North Bta
tion, and Jailer Dunn, of the South
station, have all been sumrr._-r.ed be
fore Maj. Schaeffer, and it -is said they
have all been asked to resign. David
Thompson, who acts as veterinary
surgeon for the department and also
rills the additional position of jailei
at the Fifth precinct station, has been
ordered to get ready to walk a beat.
Pawnbroker Inspector Xeedham has
already packed up his belongings, as
he received his notice several" days
and after Jan. 3 he will become' a
Capt. Hem. of the North side, has
a!?o been aware for several days that
he was to wear citizen's clothes after
the new mayor takes his seat, and yes
it-j'day h^ was wearing ih^m to get
used to the feeling.
Capt. Boswortb. of the East side sta
tion, is also said to be slated for dis
missal, and in Capt. Bosworth's case
Mayor Gray seems to have a reason.
Several years ago when Mayor James
Gray was siiil a plain newspaper man,
he had occasion to take a young wom
an! who later became his wife, to her
home on the East side. On his return
he found that the bridge over the river
had been obstructed by a fallen elec
tric light mast, and as he attempt?^
to cross he was stopped by or.c of the!
detail of officers stationed at the en<23 i
of the bridge to prevent accidents. Mr.
Gray was persistent, the officer obsti
nate, and Mr. Gray hied himself to the
Kast side station, where he found Capt.
Bosworth. Mr. Gray, it is said, was
angry and the captain gnt angry. Mr.
Gray left the station and. when he at
last succeeded in making his way
across the river, he went to his office
and wrote a^U'oast" or. the captain on
the East side and the policemen under
Maj. Schaeffer refused to either deny
or affirm the reported proposed remov
als and transfers in the police deoart
ment. The best evidence that there is
a great deal of truth in the rumors la
the fact that neany every rumor has
been verified by the officer? themselves,
who have in almost every irs-.ance con
fidingly told a fallow officer. The' re
p 'vt is that Capt. Hess and Lieut.
Swan Walton are to be piaced in
charge of the central fetation, the latter
to be raised to the rank of'captain.
Lieut. Michael Mealy ar.il Sidewalk In
spector John Gajvin aie to be place:!
in charge of the East side station, the
former to be raised to the rank of cap
tain and the latter t-> he given a lieu
tenancy. Capt Boaworth and Lie"ut
Cronin, of the East side station, it is |
said, are t<> be relieved of further duty
Patrolman A. C. Arnold la to be giv
en the rank of captain and placed in
■•harge of the South side station. Tt i^
stated that Sergeant Gu3tafapn,
. be relieved of
further duty. The removal of the lat
ter and the promotion and transfer of
Lieut. Swan Walton wfH leave twv>
vacancies in the South side station
which will have to be filled. Capt.
Buerfening. at present on the night
shift at the central station, with the
rank of assistant chief, but the pay of
captain, is to be given his old position
as captain of the North side station.
Capt. Jacob Hoin removed.
It was also reported that Sergeant
"Jack" Leonard was to go, but as yet
he has not been summoned before Su
perintendent-elect Schaeffer. While it
has been currently rumored about *h?
streets for some time that Inspector
John P. Hoy would be dismissed, and
it now seems to be a fact, none looked
to see Inspector "Joe 1" Lawrence re
moved. While the latter says it is not
so, it comes pretty straight to The
Globe that he will not be retained.

MINNEAPOLIS. Dec. 27.—The feature of
the board of eduoaWon meeting this after
noon, which ■was the Hst one of the present
board, was the presentation to President Mre.
Jennie C. Grays of a black walnut gavel.
The presentation was made by Director M.
Falk Gjertsen, on bebaJf of the other mem
bers of tfca board. In well chosen words.
President Crays responded feelingly. The
gaval Is the result of tibe haudlwork of the
manual training class at Central high school.
It has a sirver band, which bears an appro
priate inscription. The meeting also partook
of farewell features to Mayor Robert Pratt,
who also ceases to be a member of the board

aotton of the city ocancU in releasing B. M.
Johnson and Chartea Robinson from the A.

been paid by each regpeataTely.
Prof. Painter, teacher of manual tracing,
appeared belore the board, urging the pur
chase of an Iron lathe and two wood lathes.
There was great danger that a discussion on,
the well-worn topic of metal work in the
school would take place, when a motion that
the matter be referred to the eommimtee on
text books and course of study prevailed. The
bills for the month amounted to $11,740.30.

DULUTH, Minn.. Dec. 27. — This

cut her own throat, but will probably
Mrs. Borghznd is a widow forty
years of ace. She kept a number of
boarders, among ihc-m Hanson, who is
I her cousi::. Ke is thirty years of age,
I but, although ten years his senior, the
widow was wildly in love with him.
Hanson paid her considerable attention
for a time, but lately had been quite
devoted to a younger and fairer wom
The demon of jealousy was aroused
within lira. Borglund. and there were
stormy scenes and upbraidings on her
part. Last night they had some bitter
words. This morning they renewed
the quarrel. Everybody had gone out
but the two. About S o'clock a nefgfe
bor heard a cry from the house and
ran over. A horrible sight met him.
Both lay on the floor of th"c dining
icom 'n a pool of blood.
Hanson was shot in two places in
the head, and there were signs of a
terrific struggle. Clutched in his right
fist was a handful of Mrs. Borgrlund's
I ha;r. On one side of him lay the
i cham'>er of the revolver, and on the
! other the revolver itself, showing that
he had struggled to get the weapon.
Its breaking apart evidently prevented
her from finishing herself in the same
way, and she had caught up a knife
and cut her throat. The revolver was
Mrs. Borgiund's property. She is now
in a hospital, and. although horribly
gashed, will probably recover.
The responsibility for the killing of
Hanson and the probably fatal wound
ing of Ivlrs. Borglund may never be
known. Mrs. Borglund is in St. Luke s
hospital, and is likely to die. She is
too hysterical to talk, and it is only
from her that the story can be learn
ed. It is believed by some that the
woman shot Hanson and then com
mitted suicide by cutting her own
throat, but the fact that after Hanson
was killed three shots remained In the
gun, goes to show, it is believed, that
Mrs. Berglund did not cut her own
throat. Had she desired to commit
suicide she would have shot herself.
The post mortem examination held
tonight shows that the bullet entered
Hanson's head on the right side just
about the ear. and came out on the left
side two inches back of the left ear.
Death was probably instantaneous.

Return of Ambassador yon Holleben
H<-«ai<i~-l XVUU Satisfaction.
WABHINSTONt Dec. 27.—The Ger
man ambassador, Dr. yon Holleben.
has returned to Washington after an
e.\tended absence, during which he held '
several important conferences with the
authorities in Berlin relative to Amer
ican affairs. The ambassador denied
himself to all callers today. It is ex
ptcted. however, that his return will
soon bring: about exchanges with the
state department, and perhaps directly
with the president, ona number of cur
rent questions in which both countries !
are interested. While he was in Ber
lin tne German eham-eHor gave a din
ner at which Dr. yon Holleben and the
1 nited States ambassador. A.ndre\v D
"V\hite. were present. It was intended
that Assistant Secretary of State Hill
who was then in the Netherlands'
should be among the guests, but he I
could not attend- Among officials the
dinner was looked upon as an impor
tant event, as it permitted a full dis
cussion of the important questions be
r«een tee two countries and a clearing
VI- of some misunderstandings over
Bermany s attitude during the war and
the subsequent peace negotiations
which are causing comment in the G-er
nmn and American press. , Later jfcm
baaador yon Hollel en was honored by
er. auaier.ee with the emperor, during
which American affa4rs were discussed
Recent cible reports from Berlin have
slated that the ambassador was re
turning with strong instructions to
vards securing reductions in rates on
certain German imports to this coun-
Thjß reciprocity negotiations with
Germany came to a halt some months I
ago. and the reported Instructions are
probably in the line of renewing these
negotiations. As Dr. yon Holleben has
had an opportunity during this trip to
!earn very fully and personally ihe
wishes of the German government on I
all questions relating to the United !
Mates, his official call upon the au- !
thoritles here is awaited with interest.

department was surprised recently at
the receipt of a most energetic piotest
from some residents of Key West,
against what was described as the !
competition offered by government :
tugs, which was destroying their bus!- !
ness. Of course such competition could !
not be permitted^ a telegram was |
promptly addressed to Ihe commandant !
of the Key West naval station, asking !
for an explanation. In reply h
that the govern mem tugs complained I
of had goae to the assistance of a !
burning ship, as a work of humanity j
ar.d necessity, and that the complaint
was based upon the fact that by so d •-
Ing the tugs had prevented the wreck
ers from securing the usual amount of
loot and salvage which might hay*
been realized hed the vessel been left
to the flames. Needless to say the de
partment found the excuse ample.

The long projected purchase by the

The Union Pacific recently acquired
a controlling interest in the Oregon
Short Line. It secured a third of the
stock at the time of the reorganiza
tion of the company, and it had been
fearful that it would not obtain any
more, in which case the Union Pacific
would not have had plain sailing. The
Denver lines would have seriously em
barrassed it for one thing and other
railway companies were >ifter the Short
Line. Had either the Great Northern
or the Northern Pacific secured the
Short Line the Union Pacific would
have been so badly handicapped that
it could not hoj?e ever to reach the
coast. In order that there may be no
failure of its plans the Union Pacific
now wishes to get every share of Ore

With the Oregon Short Line in its
