This morning at 9 o'clock Coroner Nel
son will hold an inquest at the county
morgue upon the remains of Harry
Hutchinson, who was shot and killed
Sunday night, while attempting to es
cape from a police officer, who had sur
prised Hutchinson. Herman Walters and
a "pal" in the act of breaking open the
safe in the offices of the Minneapolis
Stove company, in the old church at
Tenth avenue south and Fourth street.
Previous to the inquest a post-mortem
examination of the remains will be made.
The police are much interested in the af
fair, as ihe inquest may develop whether
Uutchinson was shot by Policeman John
Thompson or by his "pal," who escaped.
Officer Thompson thinks that he fired in
the air, and as the escaping burglar fired
twice, simultaneously with him, Hutch
inson being between them, it is general
ly thought that the third burglar shot his
Herman Walters, better known as
Harry Walters, waived'examination when
af|9Llgn«'d in the police court yesterday,
aflp3v;i.u held to the grand jury. He will
be a witness at the inquest. If evidence
is adduced to prove the theory of the
police, the escaped burglar, if caught,
will have to face a far more serious
charge than burglary.
Harry Hutchinson, who was killed. Is
practically a stranger to the police, ex
cept for his testimony recently In an
attempt to prove an alibi for Plouff, who,
with Patsy Dockerty and William W relch,
burglarized a Nicollet avenue meat mar
ket. Hutchinson roomed at 402 Third
;:\t-nue south, which was a headquarters
for-th^ trio. In the room the police found
many additional burglar's tools.
Hutehinson's parents reside on the
South side. His father told the police
yesterday tha he believed his son to have
been led into the crimes by his com
panions, as the boy had always behaved
himself in the past. Mr. Hutchinson stat
ed that he was willing to do all in his
power to aid the police in straightening
matters out. Harry Hutchinson was only
twenty years of age, instead of twenty
seven as was stated. At the conclusion of
the inquest today the body will be turn
ed over to the family for burial.
The police are energetically at work at
tempting to capture the third burglar,
who made good his escape. As nearly
as can be learned he had a bicycle in
the vicinity, and escaped on this. Another
bicycle, which had been ridden by Hutch
inson, was found in the neighborhood. It

The war department officials seem to be
even more encouraged over the condition
in Manila. The report of Gen. Otis re

troops are well disposed. It has been evi

too hot for them to remain. Gen. Law ton
appears to be pushing northward some
fifteen miles to the east of Mac Arthur.

dent is commander-ln-chief of the army
and my superior. He has approved the
findings of the Wade court of inquiry.
Therefore, I have no comment to make.
It would be an unsoldierly act were I to
do so."
With these words Gen. Miles replied to
a reporter who saw him for a moment to
day with regard to the probable action
he would take in view of the adverse re
port of the court.
"Will you formulate a protest to the
president?" was the next question.
"I have nothing to say. No, sir," re
plied the general.
"Will you inspire congressional investi

"Do you believe congress will rectify
the matter?"
"I do not know what congress will do,
nor have I any means of knowing in ad
vance what the verdict of the court may
develop. I have no comment, criticism
or statement to make in this matter,
and you may take it as certain that any
alleged interviews or intimations to the
contrary said to come from me or near
me are wholly and unqualifiedly false.
I was, and am now, actuated solely by
the consideration of health, lives and in
tegrity of the army. My duty is done."
A very close friend of Gen. Miles and
an officer of the army, when asked if
there was anything for the general to say
or do in regard to the report of the beef
board, replied:
"There is nothing for him to say or do.
The report has been approved by the
president, and the president is the com
mander-in-chief of the army. Criticism
of the report or any other action would
be a violation of military law."
Inquiry was made as to the status of
officers criticised and what course they
might pursue, and it was stated that, as
a military legal proposition, it was Im
possible for any action to be taken by
any of the officers aggrieved. They
might demand a court of Inquiry, but
this was a court of inquiry, which rec
ommended that no further action be tak
en; this being approved by the presi
dent, precluded any further Inquiry. Gen.
Eagan, who is specified in the report, is
not likely to ask for any further investi
gation. But Col. Maus, of Gen. Miles'
staff, the other officer criticised, feels it
keenly. His friends say he was among
the witnesses whom Gen. Miles asked to
be called and was not called by the court.
It Is Expressed in a Letter Received
by Secretary I.oiriß.
WASHINGTON, May B.—Secretary Long
has received the following letter from the
minister of marine in the German cab
inet, expressive of the good feeling pre
vailing in the highest naval quarters of
Germany towards the United States
naval authorities:
Berlin, April 17, 1859.-Capt. Lieut, yon
Rebu-Paschwltz, assigned to the imperial
German embassy at Washington has re
peatedly spoken in his report of the very
great courtesy he has met with In United
States naval circles. On the occasion of
his presence in this city said officer con
firmed his reports in words of the warm
est and most grateful appreciation, and
expressed the conviction that It was
solely through the valuable assistance of
all authorities concerned and the ever
ready courtesy of the officers of thfc
United States navy that he was enabled
to discharge his duties during and after
the Spanish-American war.
Capt. Lieut, yon Rebu-Paschwitz fur
ther stated gratefully that wherever op
portunity offered he had enjoyed the
most liberal hospitality of his American
comrades. There can be no doubt but
that the great readiness of the author
ities in giving information, and the ex
treme courtesy of the different officers
and officials of the navy, ashore as well
as on the sea, Is to be ascribed primarily
to your excellency's iniative. I therefore
desire to express to your excellency my
most sincere thanks for the assistance
given Capt. Lieut, yon Rebu-Paschwitz
and I have the honor to request that you
will transmit my thanks also to the gen
tlemen of the office of the secretary of
the navy, the commander-In-chief of the
Atlantic squadron and other gentlemen
I ask that your excellency will accept
the assurance of the high esteem with
which I have the honor to be, very re
spectfully, —Tirpitz,
Rear Admiral, Minister of State and Sec
retary of State of the Imperial Marine
Do Not Relink Being Excluded From
WASHINGTON, May B.—The Chinese
legation here has made a strong protest
to the state department against the ex
tension of the Chinese exclusion act to
Cuba, this having been one result of a
recent executive order extending the im
migration laws of the United States to
Cuba and Porto Rico. Mr. Yung Kwal,
an attache of the legation, said today
that the legation had made such a pro
test, and that In view of the fact that
the Chinese would make the best kind of
citizens for the settlement of Cuba he
believed that the order would be modi
fied so as not to exclude his country
"The dowager empress," he added, "has
recently granted the most liberal pro
tection to Americans, and wishes to be
come more closely allied with America,
and this country will be going against
Its own interests if it refuses to meet
China half way."
Secretary Hay later said that the mat
ter was under consideration by the state

It Involves Questions of Critical
Importance to Eastern Lines.
CHICAGO, May B.—The Michigan Cen
tral road today gave notice that, to meet
competition, it would ignore the Chicago
switching tariff on east-bound freight.
All the other roads have followed suit,
and for the present the tariff is suspend
ed. The effect of this action is to saddle
the Eastern roads with the payment of
switching charges aggregating nearly
$500,000 a year, which have formerly been
paid by the shippers. The Michigan Cen
tral charges that the Erie first absorbed
these switching charges, but the other
roads say that the charges are not
proved. Unless the matter is settled
promptly serious trouble will result, the
situation being much more troublesome
than in an ordinary rate war. The busi
ness affected comes almost entirely from
the Northwestern and Milwaukee & St.
Paul lines, which are not reached by any
Eastern road. The charges average $5
a car, and the traffic runs up to some
8,000 cars a month.
Mihvnnkro Blocks the Construction
at Storm Lake.
The Milwaukee road is evidently out to
make it hot for the Minneapolis & St.
Louis. The Minneapolis & St. Louis sa
cured its right of way through the town
of Storm Lake, lowa, and had been given
a quit claim deed from L. J. Metcalf for
a depot site, which iJ. neglected to have
condemned for that purpose.
Sunday morning the Milwaukee suc
ceeded in getting possession of the site.
It filled up a construction train «it Fond
dv Lac, and under Trainmaster Horton,
of the Dcs Moines & Northern, went to
Storm Lake. Here it laid 1,275 feet of
track directly across the grounds that
had been secured by the Minneapolis &
St. Louis. No attempt at grading was
Ripans Tabules are great sellers everywhere, even at the news and confectionery
Hands in railroad stations. Old travelers and commercial men all know that a Ripans
Tabule will counteract the bad effects arising from change of water and hasty meals.
"We have been selling Ripans Tabules for some time," said the attendant, "and
•re selling a good many of them." Then he added the story that one hears every
where—that is, that RTP-ANS are an excellent medicine for dyspepsia, constipation,
etc., and said that he had personally used them for constipation with perfect satisfaction.
"They do not gripe," said he, "and I find them to be just what I need, and just what
Is claimed for then\."
Ripans Tabules have come into such common use as a medicine for the every-day
ills that beset human beings that there is a pretty universal inquiry for them wherever
anything is kept for sale. Ripans Tabules may be' found wherever people go who have
stomachs and are in the habit of eating.
