BALB EAGLEHCNIC ROW
ONE MAN SHOT AND MANY HEADS
BRUISED THERE SATURDAY.
The picnic of the employes of the Soo
road at Bald Eagle lake Saturday was
marred by a disgraceful row, brought on
by a gang of young toughs, with inspira
tion drawn from the wares of the 111
--conducted saloon which has heretofore
bred disorder in that peaceful resort. The
toughs, it appears, have been making a
business of following picnic parties to stir
up trouble, and soon acquired a lighting
load of liquor at the saloon.
The row, in which one man was shot in
the leg and a score of others more or less
battered with beer bottles and like mis
siles, was precipitated by a man who de
clined an invitation to drink. Friends of
the belligerents then joined in, and many
heads were bruised before the me'.ee
ended.
A young man who was acting deputy
sheriff tried to preserve the peace, but
got roughly handled and was compelled to
use his revolver to protect himself. He
emptied its contents into the crowd, and
one shot landed in a fighter's leg, without
iTiiiii'ting a s-erious wound, however.
In the row the saloon furnishings were
badly broken up, and the fighters drank
or wasted the stock by cracking bottles
over the heads of their enemies. After the
fight th? place looked as though a tor
nado had dropped on It.
Residents of Bald Eagle hope this affair
will move the county commissioners to
act on their unanimous protest against
thf> Fa'oon, which was sent in some time
ago, and there is talk of taking the mat
ter into their own hands if the place is
not suppressed. As the town is not or
ganized it has no police protection, and
dust depend upon the county authorities.

BLESSING THEJEW BELL
INTERESTING CEREMONY AT ST.
ANDREW'S CHURCH YESTERDAY.
The "blessing of the new bell" of SL
Andrew's Catholic church took place yes
terday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The cere
monies attending the blessing of the bell
will not soon be forgotten by the mem
bers of the church and their friends who
attended yesterday.
The new bell weighs 500 pounds and is
inscribed with the following: "Holy
Year, 1300; Jesus Christ, Yesterday, To
day and the Same Forever;" also nineteen
crosses in memery of the nineteen centu
ries.
The ceremony was performed by the
Very Rev. John Stariha, V. G., of St.
Francis church, this city, and the sermon
was preached by Father Keane, of the
Church of the Immaculate Conception,
Minneapolis, whose text was, "Why I
Am a Catholic in the Nineteenth Centu
ry." Father Cahill, Father Toner and
Father Cosgrove, the pastor of the
church, assisted in the services.
A feature of the ceremony was a class
of nineteen children, all dressed in white,
and carrying flowers, which they placed i n
front of the beil after it had been blessed.
The full choir furnished special music for
the occasion. There were about 400 pres
ent.
St. Andrew's church was started about
two years ago by Father Ccsgrove, who
was at that time and is now the pastor
of St. Vincent's Catholic church, and
through his efforts the membership has
increased until it now has over 200 mem
bers. The church is situated at the cor
ner of Hatch and Churchill streets, Como
boulevard, and was the first Catholic
church in that part of the interurban dis
trict, including Wurrendale. Lake Como,
Hamline and St. Anthony Park. It was
fiedicated by Archbishop Ireland Sept 18

POLICE COMMISSIONERS MADE A

Last evening Police Commissioners
Charles L. Haas, the president of the
board, and D. W. Lawler, William Foel
son and R. T. O"Connor, with J. J. O'Con
nor, chief of police, drove over the city
on a tour of Inspection.
The commissioners expressed them
selves as well satisfied with the condition
of the city, save the concerts and music |
given in some of the saloons. These the i
commissioners ordered Chief O'Connor to
have stopped.
Capt. Clark and Lieut. Hanft, under or

several places and delivered the order,
and by 11 o'clock there was not a place
in the city that had not received notice
and stopped the objectionable features.
ON NORTHERN BOUNDARY
SEAT OF INDIAN TROI'ELE DE
SCRIBED BY J. A. VYE.
J. A. Vye, of the state experimental
station, thus describes the scene of the
Indian troubles in a recent letter:
At the head of navigation on the Rainy
river are Koochehing- on the American
j side and Fort Francis on the Canadian
j s!de. Here are the Koochiching falls, one
', of the best natural waterfalls I ever
■ saw. This fall is over a base of solid
: rock and the channel is very narrow, at
j one point being hemmed in on either
side by a ridge of rock, which makes a
perfect dam. All that i 3 necessary to
conserve the power is to dam the nar
row channel and put in a pipe or ilume
\ to convey the water to a wheel.
About iwV'nty-tive years ago the Cana
dian government spent nearly $CCO,OOO
rutting a channel through the solid rock,
expecting to put in a lock and make nav
igation possible from Rat Portage across
Rainy lake. During the progress of the
work the government chajiged hands, the
channel (almost completed- was left un
finished, and stands today as It was left
twenty-five years ago. A little more
blasting would open up the channel suffi
ciently to make it available for a flume
in which to set the water wheels, and
thus provide the most substantial ar
rangement possible. The people are hop
ing that pome day capital may be n
duecd to take advantage of this natural
power and use it for a pulp mill, flour
r,.i1l or saw mill. The new railroad from
Winnipeg to Port Arthur, now nearly
completed from Winnipeg to the Rainy
river, crossing about fifty miles down
from Fort Francis, is sure to be a great
blessing to this country on the Canadian
sic( ■, but it will not tend to develop the
American side much. The tariff pre
cludes. The Canadians seem very proud
of their country along the Rainy river,
and some are not slow to make invidious
comparisons, for the American side is for
the most part in an undeveloped state.
Yet about all the agricultural land there
is vii the Canadian side is a narrow strip
along the river. The information was
vouched for by a surveyor who had
traveled extensively over the entire dis
trict. Most of the land, however, is wet
and unfit for cultivation until drained.
"What has been fitted for cultivation pro
duces abundantly; grasses, clover and
forage crops do well, and it seems
nici-ly adapted to stock industries. Veg
etables do well. In fact, the gardens at
Koochiching, although very dry, would
be a credit to many a farmer in this sec
tion of the state. Good prices can be
obtained for all agricultural products,
provided there is not an overproduction.
At present the demand is greater than
tlu supply. Following are some of the
prices at Koochiching June 14, 1S00: Eggs,
2Z cents; potatoes, 75 cents; wheat, 60
cents; beans, $S; hay, $10; salt pork, 10
cents; bacon, 14 cents; ham, 15 cents;
butter, 25 cents (supply always inade
quate); patent flour, made at Kewatin,
J3.50 per sack.
There are two things that Northern
Minnesota needs before its development
can amount to much, viz.: Transporta
tion facilities and drainage. At present
this territory is completely shut off from
reasonable transportation facilities.
There are but two ways of getting in,
the lirst and bsst route via Winnipeg,
Rat Portage and the Rainy River Navi
gation company across Lake of the
Woods and up the Rainy river. This is
a long and expensive course. It is the
only freight route, and costs 2^ cents
per pound from St. Paul. The second
route is via Tower across Lake "Vermil
llon, across a twenty-six-mile portage,
again across several lakes to Kittle river
falls, around the fails, and another boat
to Koochiching. This latter route is the
American, mail route, but is not feasible
for "freight, and the passenger who at
tempts this way must not expect tha
comforts of a Pullman car. An Ameri
can railroad is very much wanted, but a
passable wagon road from Hibbing to
tiiis section would be a great factor for
iis development, and would sjem to be a
commendable subject for state aid.
Drainage is said to be very feasible.
The river banks are high and the problem
is to get a channel of sufficient capacity
to carry the surface water through to the
numerous streams. It may be said in
this connection that the great majority
of the streams flowing into the Rainy
river are from the south. This is so
j much so that one is often led to remark
that there are no streams flowing into the
Rainy from the north. Good land, good
| water, plenty of timber, plenty of game
i and fish, and much of the land can be
had free.
At Koochiching we were most pleasantly
entertained by Mr. Jamison, editor of the
Border Budget, and Mr. Holler, deputy
collector of customs. Friday morning at
S-30 we started across Rainy lake for Kit
tle River Falls on the American boat Sea
Gull, owned and operated by Messrs.
Randolph & Son. We stopped at what
was once Rainy Lake City, which at one
time was a good-sized, flourishing place—
the seat of the Little American gold mire.
Here hundreds of people came, pitched
their tents and hoped to get rich. The
city is on a rocky cliff and the gold mine
is across the bay on an island. All the
machinery for crushing the rock and tak
ing out the gold is apparently just as it
was left several years ago. The city is
a mere designation on the map. The
postmaster is about the only inhabitant,
and the office is to be discontinued. At
3 p. m. we reached the falls, and. walk
ing around them, took another and small
er boat, the Wlnnifred Hayes, at 3:30 p.
m. for Harding, a postofflce and stopping
place thirty miles up the river and lake
The scenery along this route is most
beautiful. You pass through a succession
of small lakes and little inlets, heavily
wooded on either side with pine and
spruce, and in many places there are
high stone walls on either side. At one
point the distance between the sides of
the channel is s 0 small that you can touch
the ropks while standing on the boat
A\ lndmg your course through these many
passages one suddenly comes into Namau
ken narrows, which is one and a quarter
miles long, and picturesque its entire
length. It is the Dalles of St. Croix
lengthened out, only more beautiful We
wanted to get out and camp then and
there, but we couldn't.

FEMALE SHOPLIPTBR CAPTURED
SATURDAY AFTER A LIVE
LY CHASE
WAS BECOG2TCZED BY A CLEBK
Becoming Apprehensive, the Tbief
Fled, liul Wa« Overtaken After
a Mile Rnn-Waated
in Hudson.
S. Fantle, a general merchant of Hud
son, Wls., with a couple of business men
from that city, were In tne city yesterday
Interviewing Chief O'Connor regarding a
woman who was arrested In the general
merchandise store of Berkmore & Wy
maa Saturday. The men In looking over
the rogues' gallery immediately upon
coming to the photograph of Annie Ed
wards exclaimed: "That's her."
Saturday a woman entered the store of
S. Fantle, and, after examining a few
goods, left and went to the store of
Berkmore & Wyman. Miss Penman, one
of the clerks, immediately recognized the
woman as the one who, upon visiting the
store a year before, lifted a couple hun
dred dollars' worth of stock. She com
municated her belief to one of the pro
prietors. The Edwards woman, becoming
apprehensive over the absence of the
clerk, left the store, and, as soon as she
could turn the corner, ran.
The clerks were ordered to give chase,
and filling their lungs with refreshing
air demonstrated the beneficial effects
of wheel riding for physical endurance
by giving chase that would have done
credit to Campana twenty years ago.
The shoplifter was handicapped in the
race by a superfluous stock of silks, yet
made a sufficiently good run to lend In
tense excitement to the contest. The
woman, who had a block lead on the
start, was overtaken about one mile from,
the scene of her nefarious operations,
and brought back to the store. When
searched four bolts of silk and some linen
were found concealed in her clothes.
She is twenty-eight years of age, of
about medium height, and a rather hand
some woman.
It is believed she has operated exten
sively in Milwaukee and Chicago.
REDEDICATETHE CHURCH
PHILADELPHIA BAPTISTS REOPEN
THEIR IMPROVED SANCTUARY.
With simple exercises, well in keeping
with the nature of the sanctuary, the
Philadelphian Baptist church was dedi
cated, or rather rededicated, yesterday
afternoon. A fresh coat of paint, new
seats, carpet and enlarged auditorium
were the occasion of special rejoicing on
the part of the members of the church
yesterday afternoon, shared by visiting
Baptists from some of the larger
churches.
The pulpit and pews were built by the
members of the and the
carving of the former is also the work
of the members. The recent improve
ments cost in the neighborhood of $1,000,
of which $200 is represented In the labor
of the churchmen, leaving a debit of $800,
which was partly raised at yesterday's
services. Rev. G. H. Gamble, at the aft
ernoon service, made an appeal for funds,
and at the evening session Rev. W. W.
Everts delivered a sermon, followed by
a second appeal, which resulted in a large
part of the debt being cared for.
At the afternoon Rev. H. F. Stillwell
delivered the dedicatory address. Taking
his text from Isaiah, "I will lay thy stone
with fair colors and thy foundation with
sapphires," Dr. Stillwell congratulated his
auditors upon the achievement .of the con
ception for better things, resulting in the
edifice of the present. The building was
symbolic of what the church of God
should be. A gem has no rival in the
material world for purity, and so the
church would ever rise as the exponent of
the word of God so long as it adhered
to the doctrines of the Scriptures.
Dr. Stillwell believed that the hand of
God was evident in the unsettled condition
of affairs on the Eastern hemisphere.
During the next ten years there would,
he asserted, be fulfillments of Scripture
that today were not fully understood.
Speaking of the authenticity of the Bible,
he thought the revised edition was to be
highly prized by Christian people. Many
were loath to give up the old Bible, but a 3
it contained discrepancies of speech that
give a false meaning in the old transla
tion he believed that the revised Bible
would soon be generally accepted. The
teachings of the Bible were unaltered, but
the language could In many cases be
made more plain, as many expressions,
common and popular years ago, gave an
altogether different meaning when ac
cepted literally today.

DETECTIVE'S MORAL LAPSE.
Officer Jlyer'i Wife Say* He's Untrue
to Her.
Detective Charles Myers' wife last
night made complaftit to Chief of Police
O'Connor, charging her husband with
unlawful relations with a woman named
Morgan, lodged in the Metropolitan ho
tel. Mrs. Myers claimed that the couple
had been in the hotel for the past ten
daya.
The chief detailed Capt. Hanft to go to
the hotel and investigate. The officer
found the couple, and the woman was
brought to the central station, where
she was charged with disorderly con
duct.
The chief thought that the most severe
punishment for Myers would be to force
him into the bosom of his family, and
he was accordingly sent home.
The woman who has won Myers' af
fection. Is tall, of dark complexion, thin,
with black eyes.
When brought into the station she in
sisted that Myers would give her ample
protection, as she was a poor, lone, mis
guided woman.
Chief O'Connor intimated that whether
Myers' wife secured a divorce from
Myers or not, the police department cer
tainly would.

A LAWYER'S VIEW OF THE COH
DK>I\ATION OF THE
svvion
ANALYSIS OF JEWISH LAW
How Chrlxt's Persecatora Sought to
Secure n Legul Finding to
Warrant His Exe
cution.
"The Trial of Christ from a Lawyer's
Standpoint" was the subject of an ad
dress delivered by James? G. Qivena, of
Seattle, at th-> People's church last even
ing before a gi,od sized audience. Deal
ing, aa it did, with the events immedi
ate !y preceding: and following the cruci
fixion of Christ, and illustrated with re
productions of famous masterpieces, the
discparse held much that was of inter
est to the churchman and nun-churchman
alike, more especially for its dealing with
the trial of Christ from a legal stand
point. Mr. Givena said in part:
'That Chrls-t was tried and condemned
in courts of justice does not pi
Itself at once to the majority of minds.
The circumstances of this trial are of
such a character that the general idea
of mob or lynch law is prevalent. Yet
the arrest, the trial and crucifixion of
Christ were all consummated under law,
and W.wever grossly that law was ad
ministered, it still has its legai phase«
and may be considered from a legal
standpoint.
"In the land of Palestine at the time
of which I spoak there was no village
council, no legislature, no congress, no
assemblage whatever which pos:
the power of prescribing rules of civil
conduct. Despotism governed and the
despot was the law, the law of Moses
and the prophets. This law was not
human law, but the law of God. The
idea of theocracy dominated Judea until
the Jew, not feeling the force of "human
law, had no respect for human institu
tions. Law is always the controlling
force which shapes the conduct of men,
and whatever may have been the social
position of the typical Jew of this period,
he gave his life to the study and ob
servance of this law as expounded by
the rabbis and enforced by the sanhed
rim. The sanhedrim was an authorized
body of men possessing political, legisla
tive, judicial, municipal, educational and
religous functions, its most Important
function being judicial. In Judea there
were three courts established for the ad
ministration of justice. The lowest, a
local court of three having jurisdiction
over civil cases and petty offenses, with
power to inflict pecuniary penalty for
violation of law. The next, a higher
court, a provisional sanhedrim of twenty
three members, selected by the people
under the authority of tbe great Sanhed
rim at Jerusalem."
The speaker followed his opening re
marks with a review of the events pre
ceding Christ's seizure by the high
priests, and discussing the trial of Christ.
Mr. Givens said:
"Questions regardng His disciples and
His doctrines were asked Him by the high
priest, insinuating false doctrine and trea
son, which Jesus denied, and demanded
proof of His crime. 'Answerest Thou the
high priest thus?" said a brawny soldier,
striking Jesus on the mouth. Whether
Christ answered or remained silent it was
equally unsatisfactory. They sought for
witnesses against Him to put Him to
death, but they found none. They could
prove that He had claimed to be king,
that He had proclaimed laws as a law
giver, that He had worked miracles in
His own name, that He bad likewise for
given sins in His own name, yet such
had been the reserve of Jesus that it
could not be proved that He claimed dis
tinctively divine character. The claims
that He made In the secret councils of
His disciples were then to the public un
known. The men He cured were forbid
den to tell any man. Evil spirits under
took to bear testimony, but He silenced
them. With a wise caution He had guard
ed against this hour. Witness after wit
ness was brought; false witnesses, per
jured witnesses, but their tesetimony did
not agreo. Jesus looked on in absolute
silence while the witnesses contradicted
each other's testimony. He tnok a natu
ral position far above His judges. The
priests and scribes began to feel that their
victim would escape them. At last Caia
phas, exasperated by the humiliating
spectacle going on in the witness box,
ventured on a bold experiment, and put
Christ Himself on the witness box. Aris
ing from his seat Caiaphas said. 'Art Thou
the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?' forc
ing Jesus to criminate Himself whpn He
answered 'I am.' 'What noed have we
of more witnesses?' said Caiaphas. 'He
has blasphemed, and is w >rthy of d?ath ' "
Mr. Givens here made several points
to prove the illegality, according to Jew
| ish law, of the trial and condemnation of
Christ.
The speaker then told graphically, ac
companied by stereoptiron views, of th?
conflict of feeling which disturbed Pilate
and of his referring Jesus to Herod, who
would have nothing to rlo with the case
and sent it back to Pilate; of Pilate's
| washing his hands of the blood of Jesus
before the people. The pictures showing
the journey to tho cross and crucifixion
concluded the address.
