But He Haa to Refer All Inquirers
to the _.:>__.- Office
at Crooks
For the last two weeks there have been
on an average, from twenty to thirty
people each day Inquiring at the state
auditor's office about the opening up to
settlement of the four townships in th-a
White Earth reservations. To each per
son making inquiries the same answer
has been given. The state auditor has
nothing to do with the opening up of th..
townships. It is the United States dis
trict land office at Crookston that has
the matter in charge. .
According to indirect information re
ceived at the auditor's .office there aro
already a large number of prospective
settlers in the vicinity of the townships
waiting for the land to be opened up. In
and about Bagley, particularly, hundreds
of strangers are already on the ground.
Many of them have- tents and will live
in them until the land is opened up,
Dec. 4.
The four townships to be sold—l 43, 141,
145 and 146— in range 37, are of great
value, and hence the scramble to secure
land. Persons allowed to make home
stead entry must pay $1.25 per acre for
the land, payable In five yearly install
ments. The timber land in the town
ships .will be sold separately. The min
imum price is $3 per acre.
A 23-inch, hose made of asbestos and
other materials, that will draw out smoke
at the rate of 75,000 cubic feet per minute,
was the invention submitted yesterday
to the flre board by a West St. Paul
man, F. E. Kenny.
The idea is not so much the fact that
the firemen will be able to accomplish j
more owing to withdrawal of dense"
clouds of smoke, thus effectually doing
the work of a salvage corps, but what
is of more far reaching importance', the
fire fighters can keep the draught just
where it will be the easiest to head off
the flames. >
The machines will be held at $2,500
each but Mr. Kenny will allow one to
go at $1,500. The fire board refer ed the
matter to Chief Cook who is requested
to make a report at the next session.
Bid's on hose were received and opened.
A purchase of 1,000 feet of "Maltese
Cross" and 1,000 feet of "White Anchor"'
was authorized. As an experiment the
St. Paul , Rubber Company were given
an order for 190 feet of "White Como."
The first two brands cost $1.10 per foot
and the last one $1.05. Chief Cook said
that as a rule he did not get very much
satisfaction from the cheaper brands.
The board will try the St. Paul product.
Matt Schmitz secured the contract for
installing the heating-plant in the new
engine house on the West side. The
total cost of the plant and accessories
will be $210. - .
Loftus & Kerwin were awarded the
contract for 3,000 bushels of No. 3 white
oats at 25% cents per bushel. Tierney
. & Company will furnish 100 tons more or
less of the beat wild upland hay at $10.44
per ton.
The salaries of the operators of the
fire alarm system were raised. F. E.
Hough and Stanley Manning will re
ceive $75 instead of $70 per month here
after. Sherwood Hough was raised to
Chief Cook stated that the men had
been employed for years and could not
be replaced for twice their present* wages.
President Clark, for the board, expressed
his appreciation of their long and faith
ful services. . ,
M. O'Conner, on recommendation .of
Chief Cook, was added to the department.
The, pay roll carrying $14,910.19 and bills
to the amount of $889.93 were approved.
The charge made by the Great North
ern Railroad for the services of a wreck
ing crew to assist in the rescue of the
firemen at the midway fire had not re
ceived the attention of Chief Cook, owing
to his recent illness, and was laid over.

J. M. Bowler, state dairy and food com
missioner, is in receipt of a letter from
George F. Washburn, treasurer of the
People's party national committee, in
which is contained a proposition for a
union of the reform forces.
Maj. Bowler, after consideration of the
contents, : has sent an answer to the let
ter, stating: "I am not in favor of It."
Following is the letter written by Mr.
.My Dear Mr. Bowler: Enclosed I send
you puoposition for a union of the reform
forces, and as I value your opinion high
ly, I wish .you would write me your views
on the subject.
I believe this is our great opportunity
to reorganize. The Bryan advocates of
all parties are incensed over his defeat,
would go into a new party at this
time, when, were they allowed to cool iff
and simmer down, they would simply ac 7
cept present conditions. .-
If we wait, we are lost as a party.
if we act now, we can quickly regain
What we have lost and prepare for the
great battle. of ; the new century. Our
loyalty to principle has won us the con
fidence of the Bryan Democrats, and they
certainly should be willing now to unite
in one grand movement under our ban
ner If we cannot have such a-union, we
must have complete party independence.
The replies I am receiving are exceed
ingly favorable. We can regain our lost
strength and add hundred;, of thousands
of voters who have been marching with
us If we act quickly..
Please let me hear from you at an early
date, and oblige. Yours very truly,
- George F. Washburn.
To this Maj. Bowler replied:
Hon Geo. F. Washburn, Boston, Mass.
-My Dear * Sir: I am in receipt of yours
of the 21st inst., asking my opinion of
your proposition to form a new party,

™i T a WiU be a period of earnest,
of S D preparation for the campaign
or 1904, and not one of transition or re
organization." Thus spoke United States
Senator R. p. Pettigrew. of South Da
kota, yesterday to the Globe
'Ss^S2^,?£-£ the party for this pe
riod? Why," he said, "the leader will U Q
that same patriotic leader that has so
nobly, if not successfully, led the par'y
for the past four years, William Jen
nings Bryan."
Senator Pettigrew believes most em
phatically that Mr. Bryan will continue
to be the idol of his party and that the
party will continue to be the Democratic
party of the present day. Continuing
on the subject he said:
"Any party that would suit the Clevo
land-Hill-Whitney gang would not be a
Democratic party at all, but simply the
same party that usurped that grand old
name a few years ago. There was not a
particle of difference between the Demo
cratic and the Republican parties during
Cleveland's reign and there would not be
if the same forces Were allowed to pre
dominate in the matter of reorganization
of the party as is the talk now among
their faction. True there was an al
leged •: difference on the tariff between the
old parties, but what did it amount to?
Wilson fathered a high protection tariff
bill and the administration of Cleveland
throughout differed none from that of
"No, there is no danger of this party
ever getting into power," declared the
senator, "for they cannot do It alone,
that is, without the help and co-opera
tion of the Bryan—the true Democracy—
and they certainly will never have that
sort of support.
" "Silver is not dead, neither is its lead
er and champion. Mr. Bryan is the
greatest product of Democracy, and he
will continue to operate as a powerful
factor in American politics. Will be
again be the nominee of his party for the
presidency," was asked Senator Petti
grew, to which he replied:
"Well, -I'would not be surprised if he
would, but perhaps not in 1904. ! Why
should not the party, since it nominated
Cleveland three times, confer the same
honor upon the greatest man it ever
had?" 7^^
Senator Pettigrew stated that he per
sonally would remain in politics and give
his best energies to the flght. "I was
drawn out of the Republican party by
these principles, and I mean to stay br/
them and fight for them until I see the
victory at last accomplished. I consider
the late Republican • victory the greatest
sort of a national calamity and a serious
menace to our free, republican Institu
tions, and I will do all In my power to
suppress that 7 power. What my im
mediate course will be I - cannot now
state. I am going back to the senate :.n
a day or two and remain until the close
of the last session." .
Senator Pettigrew stated that he did
not look for much Jn the senate, except
the passage of the fourteen \ appropria
tion bills.
The city of Chicago, last year, accord
ing to the annual message of Mayor
Harrison, received $19,500 from the sale of

Sensational Shooting: Affray in a
- Boarding; House on First
Avenue North Last
Jealousy arising over a love affair, a
revolver and two wounded lovers form
the basis of another Minneapolis sensa
tion. -'" '""*;'' " '•• *
Henry Shannon and Belle Benson are
lying at the city hospital In the Mill City
with bullet wounds inflicted by Shan
non, who first attempted the murder of
the girl and then made an unsuccessful
effort to take his own life. :
Shannon was a; shoe polisher and his
sweetheart a waitress ln the Golden
Gate restaurant on Fourth street, next
to the Brunswick hotel. The girl has
told friends that her suitor had made
frequent, threats that he would, kill her
and she lived in constant fear of these
threats. Last night she received a call
from a young man named Frank Fair,
who is the "steward of t'ne restaurant
where the girl had worked. This proved
the girl's undoing and the provocation
for the tragedy, which was enacted in
her own ! room." •• '■. ■' :7 •
At about 10:30 a knock was given on
the young woman's door and she her
self answered the rap. . Before her stood
her lover, Shannon, on the threshold.
He was angry, and his passion grew into
a veritable rage when he spied another
man inside the room. The girl remem
bered his threats, and feared that her
time had come, but she determined to
make an effort to reach the mercy of her
lover. After persistent pleas she suc
ceeded in inducing him to step aside
while Fair made his exit from the house.
When Fair had gone Shannon entered.
Forthwith he began abusing the girl and
reminding her of his threats. She trem
blingly witnessed him destroy a number
of photographs, some of which belonged
to her "Ulster, Bertha. It happened that
Bertha came home from the theater "while
Shannon was tearing up her property.
She began to upraid him, and he gave
way to • his wrath. The enraged man
whipped the revolver from his pocket
and fired the shot that wounded his
sweetheart. The sister, Bertha, claims
that he Intended to shoot her and
that this was prevented by her sis
ter. Belle, stepping between them. After
he had shot his sweetheart the fellow
turned his gun on himself and-^ent a
bullet into his own body. The Injured
sister disagrees with Bertha in that the
first shot was Intended for the latter,
but maintains that Shannon fired three
shots, presumably one for each. They
failed to go , around, however, and the
younger sister got off unharmed. The
guests of the hotel who heard the shoot
ing say there were but two shots fired.
Dr. W. H. Murray was summoned, and
when he arrived found that the bullet
that had pierced the body of Shannon
had left nothing but a flesh wound, en
tering the middle of he breast and pass
ing out to one side. The girl's was a
more serious Injury, however. The bul
let went in on the right side and either
. penetrated the lung or skimmed along
the region of this organ, so as to leave
dangerous effects. The bullet lodged
under the left shoulder blade.
The wounded were both removed to the
city hospital.
- The girl is twenty-three years of age
and her lover and assailant is about
thirty. : -:7A.E

William Baxter, a private detective,

insists will completely exonerate Ham

witness to the j act, and it was from him
that evidence was secured, which points
to another man. This witness was a trans

Baxter, only one man as yet knows his

was acquainted with Hamilton, having

Ijocal Harvard Men Are Concerned
Over the Action.
At noon yesterday Mayor Gray issued
an order revoking the license held by
Manager A. W. Bronson for the sale of
Intoxicating liquors at the West hotel.
This involves a loss of about $800 to the
hotel management. It is probable that
the council committee-on licenses will
grant another license to the place in the
name of some other person.
_ The mayor did not act in the matter
without giving those interested a chance
to present their case. Chief among these
were representatives of the Harvard
club, whose annual dinner is scheduled
for the West Dec. 1. This dinner will
mark the gathering of all the Harvard
clubs west of the Alleghenies. When the
I revocation of the license seemed to leek
j probable, the management intimated to
the local Harvard committee that the
contract for the diuner might have to
be canceled If the bar was closed. Revo
cation might Interfere with the serving
of wines at the spread.
The possibility was enough to make the
Harvard men ardent advocates for th©
West, and their appeal was made to the
mayor yesterday morning by E. C. Cooke,
H. E. Barnes and Snow Wood worth.
Others who saw the mayor on the mat
ter were George R. Newell, L. S. Donald
son and George H. Partridge.
The Price of Anthracite May Take
Another Jump.
It Is among the possibilities that the
people of Minneapolis will have to pay
$10 a ton for anthracite coal before the
cold season Is over. The supply of coal
at the head of the lakes, which was
brought by water transportation, has
dwindled to about 100.000 tons, which is
not enough to go around. The result is
that Minneapolis coal merchants are al
ready anticipating bringing coal here
from the Pennsylvania fields by rail
