SOUTH. Telephone V 7 98 .7—l. "The public schools of Minneapolis are not wasting water, nor are they using one gallon more per day than is absolutely necessary to preserve sanitary condi tions." Such was the statement made yes terday by William Duncan, superintend ent of buildings for the school board of tlie city of Minneapolis. The report of Register F. L. Moody and Supervisor J. EL McConnell, submitted to the waterworks committee of the city council last week, attributes a waste of I,Ot*O,UOO gallons a day to the public schools. When interviewed upon the subject, Su perintendent Duncan said: "1 have been personally to a great many of the school buildings since the visit of the investigating committee, and the jan itors in all say that no objections were made at the time, and that the visitors expressed themselves well pleased and satisfied with the conditions. If there is a waste, it is a sanitary waste. I know there are no leaks in the buildings, as all supply pipes are shut off from the main after school hours each day." Mr. Duncan thought schools were get ting along with as little water as pos sible. The waste in schools, as reported by the committee, would average 20,000 gallons a day to each school. "The schools do not use this much water for all pur poses," said Mr. Duncan, "and yet the committee designates that amount as the waste. In all but a few instances, the achool supply Is limited to a three-quarter Inch supply pipe." It is possible that the city council may take some action soon to require the state unlveslty to pay for the water used. Ald erman Adams and ex-Alderman C. P. Lovell called at the waterworks office yesterday and had some conversation with Register Moody on the subject. Mr. Moody said that St. Paul charges the state capitol for water, and that Roches ter does the same In the case of the in sane ho=pital, and he saw no reason why »tate Institutions should be exemptd from city water rates.

He yesterday sent to every mem ber of the chamber of commerce a let ter in which he offers to pay $150,000 for the present building and build an annex for the accommodation of the trading Mrs. Axel Kjer, of Gordonville, Cape Girard eau Co., Mo., writes : "When I look at my little I tboy I feel it my duty to write you.

It is the only prepara tion of its kiud devised by a regularly graduated physician — an experienced and skilled specialist in the diseases of women. It is a safe medicine in any condition of the system. It contains no whisky, alco hol, opium or other narcotic, and therefore, does not cause a craving for stimulants. It is sold by medicine dealers everywhere, and any dealer who hasn't it can get it. Don't take a substitute. No counterfeit ie as good as the genuine and the druggist who says something else is "just as good as Dr. Pierces" is either mistaken or is trying to deceive you for his own selfish benefit.

CLOSE CAME QUICKLY PROSECUTION IN THE CASE AGAINST MR. WAY HAS CLOSED ITS PRESENTATION DEFENSE WILL BEGIN TODAY Ma if DriicmlH for Conviction Upon the Testimony of Its Expert, Mey_ er ('ultlMinltb His Interpreta tion of Meaning: of Entries In tbe Hooks of tbe Bank May Decide the Fate of the Ex-Senator. PHILADELPHIA, April 19.—Unex pectedly to almost every person inter ested, the prosecution in the trial of ex -I'nlted States Senator Quay, for con spiracy, closed its case today, after nine days full of argument, clashes of coun sel and testimony largely of an expert nature. The general expression of opin ion has been that the trial would drag through many more days, and when Dis trict Attorney Rothermel announced that he had concluded, there were expressions of surprise from all parts of the court room. The end came at 2 o'clock, just one hour before the usual hour of ad journment, and after a brief consulta tion among counsel for the defense and Judge Biddle, the latter adjourned court until tomorrow, in order that Mr. Quay's lawyers might have time to consider what steps they shall take with respect to the presentation of their side. It was stated that the question of entering de murrers to the prosecution's evidence or proceeding with the taking of testimony ■will be decided by the defense's counsel tonight. From the evidence already presented it is apparently evident that the common wealth depends largely for conviction upon the testimony if its expert, Meyer Goldsmith, as to his interpretation of the accounts in the "red book" and other books of the bank, and his opinion of the books, papers, letters, telegrams and checks offered ln evidence. As to what extent the testimony of the de fense expert, should he be called, may offset Mr. Goldsmith's testimony, re mains to be seen. The contention of the defense in argument and cross-examin ation has been that the calculations of Mr. Goldsmith are not borne out by the books, but, on the other hand, show that Mr. Quay did not use state money nor receive interest on state deposits, and that whatever loans ne received were made ln the customary manner, and backed by sufficient collateral. WEDNESDAY'S DEVELOPMENTS. Today's proceedings were devoid of sensational features. The dry routine of figures and involved explanations of ac counts took up most of the time. Mr. Goldsmith's cross-examination was con cluded, tnd redirect examination was be gun by Mr. Rothermel. The points brought out by him were that the cash account and Interest account of the bank were deficient by the omission of certain sums received as interest; that it was customary to designate all loans by Initials instead of names. Upon the question of Mr. Quay's interest ln the deposit account for May, 1896. to October, 1897, Mr. Goldsmith said: "In 1896, on June 23, the balance was $2.56; on Nov. 24, $2,777.66; on Nov. 28, again $2.56; in 1897, on Jan. 7, 60 cents; on Oct. 26, $10,000.50; and on Oct, 27, 50 cents, at which it remained till the end of the month. These are all the varia tions from Aprli 30, 1896, to Oct. 31, 1897." Director of the Mint Henry K. Boyer was on the stand, and after testifying to paying interest in October, 1897, on a call loan, asked permission to make a statement ln reply to the district attor ney's allegations, in the course of testi mony, that he received interest on state money while state treasurer, from May, 1889, to May, 1891. His request was not allowed, but the court stated that all records of replies to this question were stricken out under the court's ruling.

STILL A MYSTERY. Fate of Yorktown Men Who Were Ambushed by Filipinos. MANILA, April 19.— Admiral Dewey has been notified of the strange disappear ance of J. C. Gilmore and fourteen mem bers of the crew of the United States gun boat Yorktown. On Saturday last the Yorktown anchored off Baler, on the east coast of the island of Luzon, and about 200 miles from here, where there was a Spanish garrison of about fifty men, which had been defending itself against several hundred Filipinos, for months past. Lieut. Gilmore, Ensign W. H. Standley, and a boat's crew were sent up the river from Balar bay to communicate with the Spaniards, the town of Baler be ing situated some distance Inland. In sign Standley, who landed at the mouth of the river, reports that he heard three volleys, a bugle call and cheers from up the river, but that the automatic gun, which was part of the equipment of the boat was not heard firing. Standley, later, paddled to the Yorktown, in a canoe. A search was made for the Yorktown's boat and her crew, but no trace of them was found, and the Yorktown sailed for Iloilo, from which place her commander cabled to Admiral Dewey his theory that the Filipinos had captured or sunk the boat, or that the Spaniards had rescured the American party. A scouting party of American troops to day found a rebel skirmish line more than a mile long east of Malolos. A sharp fusllade followed, but no losses were sus tained. Brig. Gen.

Willing- to FlKbt « mil Replaced by Regular Troops. LONDON, April 19.— John Barrett, for merly United States minister to Slam, who has just arrived from Manila, em phatically declares that the gloomy fore bodings expressed In some quarters rela tive to the Philippines are not justified by the facts. "The United State** naval and military authorities," he says, "have done every thing possible in the difficult and excep tional circumstances, and the united sup port of all parties in the United States at the present juncture will enable them to bring matters in the Philippines to a quick and lasting settlement, honorable to the motherland. Should the Filipinos, however, who are kept well informed, ac quire the idea that a prolongation of hos tilities would affect politics in the United States advantageously to them, the war will be more prolonged. With regard to the statements that the Minnesota volunteers and others wished to return', to the United States, Mr. Bar rett said he had talked with the officers of all regiments, and with many of the men, and that while they would welcome a return to the United States as soon as their places could be effectively filled by regulars, there was no such feeling as one of insubordination, despondency or dis content. On the contrary, all were actu ated, he asserted, by intense patriotism, and not a man wished to leave the Phil ippines until he had seen the campaign through, or could leave the work to regu lar troops. In the opinion ol Mr. Barrett the Fili pino, as soon as he has had time to di gest the recent successes of Gen. Otis and Gen. Lawton and to become con vinced of American ' superiority, will set tle down to a life of peaceful and pro gressive citizenship. DEWEY'S DISPATCH.

When asked if he would tender his re signation to the house, Mr. Reed said: "I would rather not talk on that sub ject, in fact I have not given the matter any consideration as. yet." The speaker declined to talk about his business transactions or Intentions and was equally reticent as to whether he would take up his residence in this city after his return from Europe, where he Intends to pass the greater part of the coming summer. . . *« COAL RAILWAY SOLD.

BRYAN GUEST OF HONOR AT ANOTHER GATHERING IN NEW YORK CITY WELL RECEIVED BY GUESTS Talked to Seventeen Hundred Peo ple on the Issnes of the Day— 'Was Accorded Close Attention and Liberal Applause —r- Many Other Speakers Gave Brief Talks "Why Hovrells Did Not Attend. NEW YORK, April 19.— The second of the "$1 Bryan dinners," that under the auspices of the workingmen, was held at the Grand Central Palace tonight. It was not as largely attended as the one given by the Chicago platform Democrats ln the same place on the preceding Sat urday night, about 1,600 men and women' being present. The striking difference between these dinners was the seating of the guests of honor, tonight, on the platform, where they were plainly visi ble to everybody in the hall. Back of the speakers, painted on a large canvass, was the following: "A system of political economy will yet dawn, which will perform as well as promise; which will rain the riches of nature into the laps of the starving poor." Col. W. J. Bryan entered the hall shortly after 7 o'clock. He was received with great applause. There were few persons in evening dress and men ln well-worn Bults of various styles were numerous. The women, who were about equal ln number to the men, sat at the tables on the main floor. The toasts and speakers were as follows: "Municipal ownership of franchises," Mayor S. M. Jones. "What a just economic system would do for women," Charlotte Perkins Stet son. "The forces which beset movements in the interest of the people," Rev. Edward McGlynn. "Practical adjutsment of social prob lems," N. O. Nelson. "The government derives Its powers from the consent of the governed," W. T. Emmett. "Thomas Jefferson," William Jennings Bryan. The menu was of the simplest. John Brisbin Walker called the assem blage to order. Dr. McGlynn saying grace. Judge William Gaynor, of Brooklyn, and Bolton Hal), took their seats at the guests of honor table, when the dinner was half over. Col. Bryan rose and bowed to both; they returned his greet ing in the same way. There was much cheering at that point. Another incident was when Mayor Jones discovered Charlotte Perkins Stet son in one of the boxes, and escorted her to the guests' table. Col. Bryan changed seats to the other side of Chairman Walker, who gave his seat to Mrs. Stetson. Other seats on the floor were also occupied as the last courses were served, there being 1,750 guests present then. HEROES OF LEXINGTON. In the course of the dinner Chairman Walker rose and asked all to drink "to those heroes who on April 24, 124 years ago (battle of Lexington) gave up their lives for that liberty, the danger to which is the occasion for your gathering here tonight." All rose and drank while the band played "The Star Spangled Banner." An oil painting of Jefferson was placed betwen the tables of guests of honor and the platform, and Chairman Walker be gan speaking. Mr. Walker introduced Mayor Jones, of Toledo. Mr. Jones was cheered. Mayor Jones closed amid a great de monstration. He was intensely dra matic. Some one called for the cheers for the mayor. They were given. Then some one called for three cheers for the people. "Yes," shouted Maj. Jones, leaping to his feet and waving his hands, "cheer not for me. Cheer for the people." This brought out great applause. Mr. Charlotte Perkins Stetson spoke next. Dr. McGlynn was the next speaker. He was given an enthusiastic welcome. N. O. Nelson, of St. Louis, spoke next and was followed by William Temple Emmett. Mr. Emmett closed with a ref erence to Col. Bryan. It created a tre mendous amount of enthusiasm, and then followed another demonstration, similar to that given to Mr. Bryan Saturday. It continued for some moments and some one shouted: God bless you, Billy boy," whereat the crowd again got up and yelled and cheered for minutes. MR. BRYAN'S ADDRESS. Mr. Bryan had to raise his hands many times before his admirers would give way and they did so only when tired out. The women particularly were enthusias tic in their greetings. Mr. Bryan said the declaration of independence con denses into a few sentences the principles which must ever underlie a form of gov ernment like ours. "My attention was called yesterday to the language used by Abraham Lincoln, ln the eulogy of the declaration of inde pendence. This is an opinion of the present gathering, he wanted to contri bute to the spirit of the occasion by quoting what the great Republican said of the work of the greatest Democrat." The audience listened attentively while j Mr. Bryan read from a volume of Lin coln's speeches. When the speaker said what both Jefferson and Lincoln said when the declaration of independence was departed from he was greeted with applause. "In times people complain because bus iness is delayed on account of discussion of public questions. Let us establish a monarchy and then there will be no dis turbance of business. We can simply serve and be happy. But history has shown that where one or a few think for all the people and act for all the people they also enjoy for the people, and if we enjoy the rights of liberty and pursuit of happiness, our life must be a con stant warfare against wrong. Jefferson never uttered a truer saying than when he declared that confidence is the parent of depotism, and that free government exists in jeolously, and not in confidence. If you elect a public servant and go to sleep, then danger ls that he may be come more faithful of his own interests than yours." Mr. Bryan continued: "Jefferson was a man of ideas. We are applying his ideas today to the questions which arise. They were not all applied ln his day. They have not all been ap plied since his day. Sometimes people #MUNYON'S INHALER 2* Cures Colds, r Coughs, Catarrh, Asthma, Bronchitis and . all Throat and Lung- Diseases. It reaches the sore spots. It heals the raw spots.

A distinguished citizen of the nation spoke not long ago of the strenuous life and applied his idea to a policy that gives this nation an oppor tunity to go forth with musket and with cannon and carry its ideas by force to other nations. I thank God that peace in this country gives an opportunity for all this strenuous life of the people. (Long cheers and applause). If we but begin to apply to our daily conditions the "prin ciples which we all accept, theories which we will not contradict there Is room enough for work for several generations yet to come.
