Two new bishops were the guests of
honor at the banquet of the Church Club
of the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota at
the West Hotel last night. They were
Bishops Morrison, of lowa, and Edsall, of
North Dakota. Bishops Gilbert, of Min
nesota, Nicholson, of Milwaukee, Grafton,
of Fond dv Lac, Morrison, of Duluth, and
Hare, of South Dakota, were also present,
as well as a number of other Invited
guests and a majrity of the members of
the club. Altogether the occasion was a
notable one, and gave the two new bish
ops a hearty welcome. The visiting bish
ops are being entertained by prominent
churchmen.
Bishop Hare, who is at the West Hotel
as the guest of Judge Isaac Atwater,
talked very interestingly this morning*~bf
his great work among the Sioux Indians.
As is well known, he has been In South
Dakota for twenty-seven years, and when
he first began his work the Indians were
almost the sole inhabitants of the diocese.
There are now in the tsate eighty Sioux
congregations, 3,000 communicants and
about 10,000 baptized persons. He thinks
that about half of all the South Dakota
Indians are in the Episcopal church and
fulyl two-thirds of them are nominal
Christians.
RESISTED ARREST.
Boy's Parents Did Not "Want Him
Taken Into Custody.
When Detectives Stavlo and Morrlssey
undertook to arrest twelve-year-old Louis
Anderson, of Minneapolis, at his home,
820 Fourth avenue south, last evening,
the boy's parents made a forcible objec
tion. They first secreted Louis in an
adjoining room and declared that their
son should not spend the night behind
the bars. When the detectives finally re
sorted to force, the mother burst Into
tears and struggled desperately. While
one of the detectives held Mrs. Anderson
the other overpowered her husband and
finally laid hands on the boy. The de
tectives claim that he Is one of a gang
of juvenile thieves who have stolen a
number of bicycles recently.

New l.nw Point Decided.
In a decision filed yesterday morning
Judge Elliot holds that a person may
legally sign as a witness to a mortgage
running to himself. The decision Is the
first of the kind in this state, and is one
of wide interest. It has been held be
fore that an interested party is a compe
tent witness to a will, and Judge Elliott
extends this rule to deeds.
The case is that of Ira F. Murphy
against Celia and Wm. H. Lang, the
Guarnty Savings Bank of Manchester,
N. H., D. P. Jones and Wm. B. Foster.
Serious Charge.
M. C. Sueflohm, a wagoner, whose

south, was brought to the South Side
station yesterday afternoon and locked
up. He is alleged to have committed an
assault upon Christina and Eldie Hagel
berg, sisters, both of whom are under
seven years of age. The police also
claim that the prisoner numbers several
more small girls among his victims. He
is thirty-five years of age.
Fire Played a Part.
Fire played an exciting part during the
progress of an entertainment at All Souls'
church, Minneapolis, last evening. As one
of the cast of characters struck a tragic
attitude he accentuated his lines by
knocking over a lamp. The damage was
slight.
Battery B Inspected.
Battery B was inspected at the Minne
apolis Armory last evening before a
large crowd of visitors. The inspection
of uniforms and equipments was con
ducted by Capt. E. C. Monfort.

Mnlachy's Papal Forecast.
According to the good St. Malachy who
flourished in the eleventh century Ind
tried his hand on a papal forecast! there
are to be ten more popes after Leo XIII
before the end of the world. The predic
tions up to the present, have the singular
coincidence of cerification. His title for
the next pope is "Ignis Ardens" (burning
fire) which is borne out by the crest of
Cardinal Gottl, the Carmelite monk now
popularly considered in Rome as one of
the most prominent candidates for the
succession.

ASTONISHING CONFESSIONS.
Men Have Admitted Committing
Crimes "Which Never Took Place.
Wonderful Events.
That a man on the rack, with every
nerve quivering, with every nerve drawn
to its utmost tension, with the pain in
creasing ln Intensity and violence, should
confess himself the perpetrator of crime
Is natural enough. The prospect of relief
from actual pain Is a temptation that
blinds the sufferer to the future. But it
may seem strange, and is, Indeed, one of
the most Inexplicable things ln human
history, that men have been Induced
by religious exhortations and other means
ot persuasion to sign their own death
warrants by confessing crimes actually
never committed. Such, ln England, was
the case of John Perry, executed near
Campden in 1661, with his mother and
brother, for murdering William Harrison,
steward for Lady Campden. The testi
mony against them was chiefly the con
fession of John Perry himself, but, to
the astonishment of all, Harrison, who
had been kidnapped and caried off, re
turned two years after the execution.
In ISI2 a man named Russell Colvin,
living at Manchester, Vt., disappeared,
and suspicions of foul play were enter
tained. Public opinion attributed his
murder to Stephen and Jesse Boom. Still,
as there was no definite ground on which
to arrest fhem, the excitement gradually
drew away. In 1819, however, a Mr. Boom
dreamed that he had been murdered by
two men, whom he fixed upon as his
nephews, Stephen and Jesse. The ghost
of the_murd:ered man even specified the
place of the murder, and the old cellar
hole where the mangled body had been
thrust. Here a knife and buttons were
found, which were identified as belonging
to Colvin. On this the men were arrest
ed. Stephen and Colvin had quarreled
Just before the disappearance of the lat
ter, and Stephen had been seen to strike
him with a club and knock him down.
In a short time Jesse confessed that he
and Stephen, with their father, after
Stephen knocked him down, had car
ried him to the old cellar and cut his
throat with a Jackknlfe. He further stat
ed that the next year they made away
with most of the bones of their victim.
Stephen, after a time, admitted the truth
of Jesses confession. On this day they
were convicted and sentenced to be hang
ed on the 28th of January, 1820. They
applied for commutation of the sentence,
and, as some believed their Innocence, ad
vertisements were Inserted In various pa
pers for Colvin. Not long afterward a let
ter appeared in the New York Evening
Post, signed by a Mr. Chadwick, and dat
ed Shrewsbury, N. J., Dec. 6, 1819, stating
that a slightly deranged man named,
Russell Colvin had been there five years
before. This was generally looked upon
as a hoax, but James Whelpley, of New
York, who knew Colvin, resolved to fol
low up the clew, and actually found Col-
vln at the house of William Polhemus,
at Dover t N. J., where he had been since
April, 1813.
Mr. Whelpley took him to New York,
the common council gave him means to
proceed to Vermont, and he a/rived. at
Manchester on the 25d day of December,
Th^ whoje place was Tn a state of wild
excitement. People gathered in from all
the surrounding country to see the dead
alive. A cannon, was brought out. and
Colvln was saluted by a discharge of
cannon and small arms. Stephen Boom
firing the first piece. There was much
discussion as to the motive for the con
fession, some attributing it to the effect
of imprisonment, a general sort of panic,
terror, and others to the injudicious ad
vice and exhortations of a clergyman.

MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 27. -A heavy

nue, the main thoroughfare of the city.
The wind which accompanied the rain
leveled two smoke stacks of the Antigo
roller miils.
At Madison, the storm was in the
nature of a cloudburst accompanied by a
tornado from the southwest and a fierce
electrical storm. A bolt of lightning
struck the steeple of the German Luth
ern church, shattering it. A class of

NOVEL TARIFF TEST.
Right to Collect Dnty on Goods Sent
to Porto Rico Questioned.
WASHINGTON, April 27.— Information
has been received at the war department
that the present customs laws of Porto
Rico are to be tested in the courts. It is
intended to ship a cargo of goods from
New York to Porto Rico and refuse the
payment of the tariffs established by the
government. If payment is insisted upon
it will be made under protest, and suit
will be brought to recover the amount.
The claim will be set up that as Porto
Rico ls now a portion of the United
States it is unconstitutional to charge
customs dues for goods sent from one
portion of the country to another. The
right to make such charge is based upon
the fact that Porto Rico is under a mil
itary government, and therefore regu
lated by the military rather than the
civil laws of the United States. To this
contention the advocates of free trade
between the island and the United States
answer that peace has been proclaimed
and that military authority cannot su
persede the civil authority ln portions of
the country where there is peace.
Gulf Line Litigation.
KANSAS CITY, April 27.— Today, be
fore Judges Thayer and Phllllpps. of the
United States circuit court, J. McD
Trimble, general counsel of the K^isas
City. Pittsburg &f Gul railroad, made a
surprising move by resigning:, as one of
the receivers, withdrawing the motion to
have the case remanded to the state
court, and dismissing/ the suit in the
state court, by virtue of which Judge
Gibson appointed Robert Gilhans, E. L.
Martin and J. McD. Trimble receivers.
The last move nullified the action of
Judge Gibson, and left the case in the
hands of the two federal judges to ap
point whom they please as receivers. The
suit of the State Trust Company of New
York to foreclose the $25,000,000 mortgage
still stands on the federal court docket.
Later in the afternoon Webster With
ers, of this city, and S. W. Fordyce, of
St. Louis, were appointed the new re
ceivers of the road, and the court order
ed that Robert Gillham be retained as
general manager of the property.

CRUSHING DEFEAT

NO WORD FROM OTIS.
War Department Outlines IMnn of
American Campaign.
WASHINGTON, April 27.— The war de
partment did not receive any informa- [
tion today from Gen. Otis respecting de
velopments in the campaign about Cal
umpit. It is said now that while It was
part of the plan for Gen. Lawton, mov
ing westward from Norzogaray, to take
the rebels in the rear at Calumpit, and
crush them between his own force and
that of Gen. Mac Arthur, such was not
the only purpose of his expedition. The
principal object was to clear the country
back to the foot hills of the numerous
small bodies of insurgents who have been
harrassing the country and making life
miserable for the American troops at un
expected times and places. It is believe-'l
that Gen. Lawton has fully succeeded in
this and that when he has effected a
juncture with Mac Arthur north of Cal
umpit it wil be possible to establish a
comparatively short line of works across
country and prevent the return of the In
surgents from the north.
HEALTH IS GOOD.
So It I» Reported of Northwest Sol
diers in the Philippines.
WASHINGTON, April 27.— Under date
of Feb. 28, Maj. S. O. T. Potter, chief of
surgeons. Second brigade, Second divi
sion, in Manila, reports to the war de
partment concerning the health condi
tions of his command. The brigade at
that time consisted of the First Colorado,
First South Dakota and First Nebraska.
They had been in action and lost thir
teen killed and forty-nine wounded. It
was this brigade that moved out and
captured the water works which for some
time were In possesion of the Filipinos.
The health of the brigade was considered
excellent— better than it had been at any
time In four months. The percentage of
sick was only 8.5, including the wounded.
The food was good and included fresh
beef seven out of ten days. The tropps
had shelter tents raised on bamboo plat
forms. The surgeon recommended hel
met hats of kahkl for the hot season.

chest. There being a well-known F:irgo
boy of the same name In Company B,
Fargo, North Dakota volunteers, it" was
feared the official report was a mistake,
especially as the dispatches from Manila
reported one North Dakotan woundrd,
but gave no name. A query wire the
adjutant genera! of South Dakota elicit
ed the information this afternoon that
there was no Hansche in that regiment.
Hence it has been concluded it must be
the Fargo boy.
British Empire.
The British Empire is now a territory
of 11,500,000 square miles, or 13.000 000 if
we include Egypt and the Soudan, mid in
this territory there is a population of
about 407,000,000, wfcich would be increas
ed to over 420,000/000 if Egypt and the
Soudan were included— a population
about one-fourth of the whole popuiat- >n
of the earth. Of the population, again,
about 50,000,000 are of English speech and
race.

Groom Absent From Wedding.
A Polynesian bridegroom is conspicu
ous by his absence during the wedding
festivities. As soon as negotiations are
opened with the family of the bride, the
young man is "sent into the bush," and
there he is obliged to stay until the wed
ding ceremonies are completed.
