STORY OF THE MISFORTUNE! OF
ATTORNEY K. H. APL.IN, OF
WAS A LIGHT OF THE BAB
Suddenly Becoiuea Insane, Believing;
That His Wife W lubes to Bo
Rid of Him—ln Detention
CHICAGO, April 23—The story of ihe
fiudden insanity of Attorney Edward H.
Aplin, of Huron, S. D., which was men
tioned in a telegram yesterday, shows
that he and his wife came from the Da
kota city a few days ago and registered
at the Briggs house. Both were young,
both were as happy as two persons re
cently married and In perfect mental ao
cord could be, and nothing seemed like
ly to mar their love story. Up to Thurs
day last this state of affairs existed. Then
suddenly, and without having given any
premonition of the tragic termination that
' was to come, young Aplln's brain gave
way, and now he occupies a cell at th 3
detention hospital, bound hand and foot
like a dangerous wild animal, lest he do
himself or some of his attendants an in
As for the pretty young bride, she can
only sit at the home of friends and weap
and wish for her husband" s recovery,
which the brain repairers think is a re
mote possibility. She would like to for
get that in his frenzy he tried to harm
her until she was forced to flee from him
as from an enemy.
THINKS WIFE MEANS TO LEAVE
Most painful of all to the wife, how
ever, is the knowledge of the form her
husband's fantasy took. He was seized
with the Idea that she meant him ill,
and that she preferably would be rid of
him. This hallucination grew qukkly as
he nurtured it, and had reached its ma
turity almost before his friends were
aware that the seed of it had taken n ot_
Aplin, who is a lawyer, was formerly
a state senator in South Dakota, ani
state's attorney at Huron. A man of
high sensitiveness, a hard student, a bril
liant orator, and a devoted toiler for his
clients, it Is little wonder, his friends
think, that overwork weakened his mind,
but they are none the less astonished that
at his wife should be directed the shafts
of his insane malice.
Out in Huron, when Aplin and his wife
were wedded a short time ago, they call
ed it a love match. Now they are won
dering whether any real foundation ex
ists for his suspicion that she does not
love him as much as he thought she d d.
The young husband was conveyed to
the detention hospital at 5 o'clock in the
morning, after having made the ni^ht
a terrible one for his spouse. At Hist
she tried to soothe him and convince him
his distorted brain was deceiving him In
his unjust accusations against her, but:
when he added physical violence to verb.il
castigation, she was obliged to run f.om
him to keep from being struck. She
stood it as long as she could, but fear
finally got the better of her distaste of
making known her husband's sad condi
tion and she called members of the hotel
force to her aid.
HOTEL GUESTS AROUSED.
The guests by this time were aroused,
and, Aplin's mania having by this t:me
reached the shrieking stage, they were
drawn into the corridors, half dressed
and Inquisitive, while through this noc
turnal cordon the madman was half ted,
half dragged by the house employes and
the police whom they had called to their
He fought his custodians wildly, and it
was deemed well to tie him foot and hand
before putting him into the patrol wag
on and bundling him away like a bunch
At the hospital later in the day the
physicians gathered around him and
shook their heads in a puzzled sort of
way. They applied the usual tests and
then tapped their brains significantly and
looked very wise, as if to Intimate that
the patient was in anything but the same
state of mentality.
"He may recover and he may not,"
they said, not lucidly. "It's a bad case.
Overwork, strain on the thought struc
ture; finally it-falls, and that's the end
of the first chapter. Can it be built up
again? Probably. But its a question."

QUAY CASE IN SENATE
DEBATE ITPOIN PROPOSITION TO
SEAT HIM DESULTORY.
WASHINGTON, April 23.-A two days*
debate on the right of the Hon. M. S.
Quay, of Pennsylvania, to a seat as sen
ator was begun immediatly after the
senate assembled today. The debate was
desultory in character.
Tomorrow at 4 p. m., under a special j
order, the case is to be disposed of. A
direct vote upon the proposition to seat
Mr. Quay may not be taken immediately
after the clos-e of the debate. Mr. Chan
dler has a motion pending to j seat Mr.
Quay, but it is held by the senate par
liamentarians that any subsidiary motion
will take precedence over Mr. Chandler's
motion. These include motions indefi
nitely to postpone, to postpone to a defi
nite date, to recommit to the committee
and to amend. How the senate ■will voto
on any of them is a matter of speculation.
In support of Mr. Quay's right to a
seat speeches were delivered today by
Mr. Chandler (N. H.), Mr. Kenney (Del)
and Mr. Penrose (Pa.). Mr. Platt (Conn.)
and Mr. Quarles (Wis.) delivered, speeches
in opposition to Mr. Quay.
LIKE AMERICAN LOCOMOTIVES.
In a recent report to the state depart
ment, Consul Frank H: Mason, at Ber

ciency of American locomotives are tak
ing place in Germany now. By reason of
their greater boilers and extent of their
heating services, they are much more eco
nomical than those in use on German
railways. It is evident, however, says
Mr. Mason, that, like all American ma
chines that have been tested by the gov
ernment, the locomotive has been brought
over to be studied and used as models to
be imitated by German builders, and that
no idea of obtaining a supply of locomo
tives built in the United States is enter

George Washburn, president of Robeit
college, in Constantinople, said:
"Contrary to a seeming belief, mission
aries in Turkey have no political pur
poses whatever. All that they ask of the
Turkish government is that they be given
the rights guaranteed by the treaties ex
isting between the two countries. The
position taken by American missionaries
is the B&me position as taken by the
United States language. In the languig«
of Mr. Blame: 'For us to ask of the
Turkish government rights for mission
aries that we do not ask for merchants
would be unjust. To ask for less would
be still more unjust.' The missionaries
are confident the government will pro
tect the treaty rights of all Its citizens,
and they are satisfied to leave the mat
ter in the hands of the president and sec
retary of state."

ST. LOUIS HAS A CXJEB.
Speculation Rife as to What the
Exchange Will Do.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 23.—Fifty mem
bers of the Merchants' exchange opened
a "curb" today ten minutes after the
regular business of the day "on the

of the movement following so closely
upon the board's refusal of the petition
to permit privilege trading on the floor.
None of the members of that body are
willing to say what will be the next ac

To the Number of 200,000 to Be
Planted In Montana. Thla Season.
There is hardly a farm or an orchard
In Western Montana upon which tre?
planting is not ift progress this week.
There has been a large delivery of nur
sery stock this spring, most of it having
been sent to the farms during thr> past
five days. The earlier estimates, publish
ed a month ago, seem to have been car
rect as to the number of trees that will
be planted this spring. That number will
not fall far short of 200,000, and muy ex
ceed that figure a little.
The home nurseries have done a hand
some business this spring, and their ca
pacity has been taxed to the utmost to
meet the demand foT home-grown trees
The thrifty, hardy stock from these home
nurseries has been growing in favor
steadily for the past four years, i-ince It
The inspection of the bulk of the trees
received at Missoula this spring was su
perintended by Prof. Ccoley, state in
spector, who was assisted by D. E. lland
mann and the local inspector, W. B. Har
lan. All of these trees have been fumi
gated to destroy any possible pests that
might have been Introduced upon root or
branch of the young trees. The impor
tance of this fumigation and inspection
cannot be overestimated, and upon its
proper performance depends the contin
uance of the present healthy condition of
the Montana orchards. There Is not as
much opposition to this inspection as
there was a year ago, the importance of
the matter being more generally under
stood than it was at first. The nursery
men, however, have at all times been
willing to co-operate with the Inspectors,
and the latter have never received any
discouragement from the shippers. This
is as it should be.
CITY OF NOME.
One Year Ago There Was Practical
ly No-thing on Its Site.
Appleton's Popular Science Monthly.
The city of Nome itself might properly
be termed a model of production. Before
the end of June, 1899, there was practi
cally nothing on Its present site; in early
July it was still a place of tents, but by
the midde of September it had blossomed
out into a constructed town of three or
four thousand inhabitants, more than
one-haJf of whom were properly housed
in well built cabins, the lumber for whloh
was In part brought from a distance of
2,000 miles, and none of It from less than
100 miles. Numerous stores and saloons
had arranged themselves on both sides of
a well defined street (which was here and
there centrally Interrupted by building
transgressions), the familiar signs of
dancing and boxing bouts were displayed
In front of more than comfortably filled
faro and roulette establishments, and in
a general way the site wore the aspect
of riding a boom swell.
And indeed there was plenty of activ
ity, for the final weeks of fine weather
warned of the impending -wintry snows
and blasts, and much had to be done in
dividually to shield one from, these and

COLUMBUS, 0.. April 23—ArrivaIs In

an state convention are not so numeiou-j
Congressman Dick announced to dele
gates and others this afternoon that Ban
ator Hanna absolutely declined to ba a
delegate-at-large, and this announcement
was accepted everywhere as a declination
by Hanna in favor of Congressman Groa
The four delegates-at-large when Mo-
Klnley was nominated at St. Louis four
years ago were Senators Hanna and For
aker, Gov. Bushnell and Gan. Grv>svenor.
This year they will be Senator Foraker,
Gov. Nash and Congressmen Grosvenor
Gen. Dick denies that the platform was
prepared in Washington, or that he
brought any part of it with him. Sottie
of the main planks were discussed in
Washington, such as those on the tarfrr
and monetary questions, with speciflc dec
larations regarding Cuba, Puerto R;cd
and the Philippines. The policy of tho -
administration with the Philippines ani
the Puerto Rican bill will be inclorsed,
also the Paris treaty.
Ex-Representative Laylin, who will
head the ticket as the candidate for rec
retary of state, has been receiving con
gratulations this afternoon and evening-
Eight years ago, when Mr. Foraker was
defeated for senator by Sherman, Laylin
was the Sherman candidate for speaker
of the house, and was then nominated In
the caucus by only one vote over J. Frank
McGraw, the Foraker candidate. Mc-
Graw is the son-in-law of former Gov.
Bushnell. This time Laylin secured three
fourths of the delegates, and his oppo
nent hag withdrawn.
This fairly indicates the ur.animl'y of
sentiment in Ohio toward Senator Hanna
as the recognized representative of tho
national administration. Everything in
the convention will likely be done by ac
