of perjury growing out of a judgment

May Be Furnished tinder the Speci
fications for Bidder*) Anxious
to Supply the Interior
DULUTH, Minn.. Dec. 17.— The govern
ment is advertising for lumber for ita
Indian department, and Northwestern
manufacturers are trying to f.ll the speci
fications. This they find it impossible to
do, and if they could, the price paid
would use up the Indian funds for a gen
eration. Lumbermen and lumber jour
nals are criticising the department very
For coffins for reservation Indians here
abouts the government has asked for
lumber of a grade that will soil in thls»
market at ?40 a thousand feet. The high
est, grade coftins made for whites are
made of inner lumber of a very much
less valuable quaiity. Doors for the lit
tle sod dugouts of Indians of the West
ern prairies are wanted of what is known
as "No. 1 pine," a class of door too fine
for an ordinary $3,0C0 dwelling. Lumber
for the roof supports for these same sod
shanties are of '.'D stock" of a length
and width that will make them cost $50
a thousand feet. Such widths and
lengths are unnecessary. Lumber for
fencing for reservation cattle i:s wanted
of a ciunlity th3t would go into the best
dwellings of the country. Whites would
usr- a strand or two cf wire and a few
c.u'l boards, worth in all a tenth as much.
For the kitchen utensils, etc., for thess
Indians, the government is using copper
instead of tin, and is figuring on alumi
num instead of sheet iron. The cattle
given by the government to the Indians
and raised at government expense inside
fences of first-class lumber, are bought
back by the government and given to thj
same Indians for torture and slaughter
for faod.
Advertisements have recently appeared
in lumber and other journals hereabouts
asking for bid's for lumber fcr packing
boxes for rouarh sreods to be sent the
soldiers in the Philippines Stock Ixlox2o
of clear pine is called for. The pine cut
in the woods of Minnesota does not
furnish 5 per cent cf a grade as high aa
this. Private firms, even to the Standard
Oil company or the finest piano m iker-,
use No. 4 boards, any width or length,
and worth hardly a fifth as much.
For some timber construction wanted
by the government, the lumber to be
used coarse and rough, specifications
have been received calling for clear white
oak sticks 14x14 and 30 feet long, and
quartered oak boards IS inches wide and
40 feet long. One plank of such lumber
will cost several hundred dollars. It
might not be found in a careful search
over a dozen heavily timbered oak coun
ties, but not at all in this part of the
United States. If it was found, it would,
be cut into sheets of paper thickness :uid
spread out over fc>oo pianos r.nd rich
furniture. The government wants this to

wards he was in tha campaign around
Saratoga and was in the gallant Si ark's
brigade at the surrender of Burgoyn .
His father, Col. Jeremiah Fulsom, born
in 1719, was also a member of the same
party, as were Levi's seven brothe: s, one
of whom was killed at Saratoga. Col
Jeremiah Folsom was a delegate to the
provincial congress of New Hampshire.
The man who died at Taylors Falls
Saturday night was a grandson, on h:a
mother's side, of Tilly Howe, who enlist

And After Eating Everything In
Sight Gave Up the Ghost.
ANOKA, Minn., Dec. 17.—(Special )—
The mystery of the haunted house on
the Nelson farm, a few miles from this
city, has been cleared up. The dailies
several weeks ago published lengthy ar
ticles of the mysterious noises, songs and
moanings about the rooms, and no one
roiild account for the supposed ghost
that broke up a happy home of a nov/lv
married couple who recently occupied the
house. Many people around the imme
diate vicinity were baffled by the peculiar
capers of the ghost that lurked there
about, until a number of boys of Lin
wood determined to ferret out the mys
ter. There are two cellars under the
house. Or.c was used more than the
other, and contained potatoes and such
other articles, and there are some shelves
oil which some tin pans were. In some
manner a large hog walked into the first
cellar and passed into the second and the
door closed behind him. The animal sat
isfied his appetite on potatoes, etc., until
the supply ran short. Then the gftost
began to appear, and this continued until
the boys broke open the door of the cel
lar and discovered the dead hog.

Tliree Concerns on the American
Side In Grand Forks District.
GRAND FORKS, B. C, Dec. 17.—(Spe
cial Correspondence.)— The Gold Hill
Mining company, which is the result of
a consolidation of three companies own
ing the Newton Copper, Madison-Carrol
and Copper Bullion groups of claims, on
the American side of the line southwest
of this city, are preparing to enlarge their
present system of development, and
open up their properties on a large scale.
Alexander Dunphy, his son Arthur, and
Judge Hinkle, of Spokane, are now exam
ining the claims with this end in view.
They are also having the properties sur
veyed for patent.
Andy Fennel and Gus Peterson are tak
ing out some fine copper ore from the
Cuba Girl claim, which adjoins the Brim
stone and Coyote, two of the leading
claims of the La Fleur mountain.
The time-worn rumor of rich placer
diggings on Fourth of July creek is again
rife. Some work is being done on tlie
creek near the boundary line, and a lit
tle coarse gold is being saved with a
rough sluice box. The miners claim to
have gravel that will run $9 to the cubic
yard, but this claim Is scouted by the
old timers, who have prospected the creek
for years. It is the prevalent opinion
that good diggings would be found if btd
rock could be reached, but this is dif
ficult owing to the influx of waters. The
miners are having trouble with Dennis
Peone, on whose Indian allotment the
claim is located.

MARENGO. 10., Dec. 17.—Because she
loved not wisely but too well. Miss Mary
Derack is mourning the loss of $100 and
a dashing lover. The latter gave his
name as Henry Shores. He was the vic
tim of misfortune and had been com
pelled by cruel necessity to resort to
manual labor as a means of livelihood.
His romantic story appealed to Miss
Derack. Shores was anxious to prove
his devotion, and, as a means of serving
her, offered to deposit $100 which she pos
sessed. She trustingly placed her money
in his hands, and now she is rorry.
Shores is supposed to have gone to Den

the officers to discover his whereabouts.

while the train was moving. He will be
examined tomorrow, and will probably be

Samuel Gouipert, President of the
Federation of Lnbar, the Prin
cipal Speaker at the Even
ing Session.
CHICAGO, Dec. H.—Men who in the
past have been bitterlyiopjiosed to each
other in industrial contests filled Stein
way hall at tonight's sessi^ of the con
ference on conciliation and arbitration,
which began here today. Both the day
and night sessions were ta^cen up with
papers read by representatites of capital
and labor, looking to the same end—
a cure for strikes. From the tone of
the addresses, it seemed plainly evident
that both sides were vigorously opposed
to compulsory arbitration, and if a
recommendation on the subject of a
national board results from the present
gathering the recommendation will in
all probability specify that all the
board's work shall be along the line of
voluntary arbitration.
The conference has as its object the
stirring up of public sentiment, by
means of intelligent discussion between
representatives of labor and employer,
rather than of taking definite action,
although it is not unlikely that some
resolutions giving the sentiment of the
conference on the best ways of dealing
with industrial disputes will come up
before the closing meeting Tuesday night.
The audience during the forenoon lis
tened with close attention to the variety
of views presented by the speakers.
The conference was called to order by
Franklin Mac Veagh, chairman of the
committee on arrangements. He spoke
in part as follows:
Carroll D. Wright, United States com
missioner of labor, followed. He was
greeted with applause as he arose.
John Mitchell, president of the United
Mine Workers, was the next speaker.
He was received with vigorous applause.
His address was extemporaneous.
The afternoon session was opened by
Edna Durand. John B. Tobin, of Bos
ton, general president of the Boot and
Shoe Workers' unions, spoke of the meth
od under which the boot and 'shoe work
ers and their employers'have got a'ong
together with the minimum of trouble.
Mr. Tobin summed the system up by
saying: "We have been able to settle all
of our difficulties by simply sitting down
together and talking over the question."
The next speaker was R. H. Jeffry, of
Columbus, O. He said in part:
"The manufacturing class or the em
ploying class is responsible today for the
very existence of trades union?, and I
consider much more directly responsib'e
for a great deal of the bitterness which
many trades unionists bear to employers
as a class. We are each forgetful of
each other's interests. We are on the
eve of awakening to the deplorable con-
Qitiong under which we have b'en labJr
ing. Many of the best commercial inter
ests of this country have been stagger
ing en like a sick man under a load of
disease, but like many a sick man, too
unwilling to acknowledge that all was
not well."
At the night session, after introductory
remarks by Franklin Macveagh, the pie
siding officer, Henry \V. Hoyt, president
of the National Founders' association,
was introduced.
The next speaker was Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation of
Labor. Mr. Goropers received a waira wel
come. ■ ■■- , C .'V f.-i. ■ ■■■. 1 .-; v -- •■• '
At the outset Mr. Gompers stated that
he desired to take „ positive exception to
statements that had been made before the
conference during the afternoon. He Had
already, he said, advised the gentlemen
whose remarks he intended to criticise
of his intention. Mr. Gompers saJd:
One of the things to which I took
exception was that, as an officer of the
Atehison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad, he
should undertake in this conference to
present his side, the side of the railroad,
in a strike which is still in progress, with
out a representative of the strikers being
here to present their side of the con
troversy (Applause.) It seemed to me
that if the opportunity of this conference
is to be taken advantage of for the i re
sentation of the railroad's side of this
£?vpn°y ert£ dUe notSoe miht have been
given to the representative of the O R.
T in order that he might be here to
listen to what was said, and refute <t ; if
necessary. (Applause.) ; * ei u«2 .t, v
*v, am not prepared to say that what
the gentleman said was untrue, but one

LONDON, Dec. 18.-Great Britain has
instructed Sir Ernest Satow, I under
stand," says the Pekin correspondent of
the Daily Mail, wiring Sunday, "to urge
the retention in the joint note of the
word 'irrevocable' and the inclusion in
the preamble of a declaration "that un
til the Chinese government has fulfilled
the demands of the powers, Pekin and
the province of China will not be
evacuated by the allied troops."
, "It is rumored that Germany is warm
ly supporting the British proposal, and
I believe a majority of the powers, and
possibly all of them, will eventually ac
cept the proposal, which is hailed here
with delight."
PEKIN, Dec. 17.—The Russians have
purchased ?500,000 worth of rice, which is
being given to destitute Chinese.
Gen. Chaffee, the American commander,
is also having a large amount of rice
issued, and the other nations are dis
playing liberality.
M. De Giers, the Russian minister, says
that Russia is making no preparations
for the relief of Christians, because the
latter have little need of it.
While a number of German officers
were dining they narrowly escaped death
by asphyxiation In the fumes from a
Chinese stove. Four out of seven were
partially insensible for more than half an
hour. Fortunately all recovered. The
stoves in this country are a constant
source of danger.
The railway from Pekin to Taku is now
complete. To makes the eighty miles
generally takes ten hours.
The French are issuing invitations to
an excursion by train to Pao Ting Fu,
Jan. 15.
Gen. Chaffee, in consequence of re
peated reports from Ho Swio as to Boxer
activity in that vicinity, has sent troops
of the Sixth United State cavalry and
sixty members of the Ninth Infantry,
with instructions to explore the neighbor
hood thoroughly and to render all assist
ance necessary to quell any disturbance
caused by Boxers or bandits.
Neither Gen. Chaffee nor Sir Alfred
Gasalee, the British commander, believe 3
that there is a large body of Boxers any
where near under arms, although some
reports represent the Germans as seeing
Boxers every dry.

Senator From Mississippi Contends
for the Right of tlie United
States to Fortify the
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.-Just before
adjourning, late this afternoon, the sen
ate gave its consent to the fixing or a
definite time to vote upon the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty. Senators Money and
Mason had occupied the time of the ex
ecutive session in making speeches upon
the treaty, and when Mr. Mason, who
was the last speaker, concluded, Senator
Lodge renewed his request to take a vote
next Thursday. No voice was raised in
opposition, and the unanimous agreement
was recorded. The understanding is that
the voting shall be on the amendments at
A o clock, and that the senate shall con
tinue in session until the first vote on the
treaty itself is reached.
Senator Moneys speech was a flat pro
test against the entire proceeding in con
nection with the treaty. He talked for
two hours, contending for the right of
the United States to act in this matter
independently of other nations. He said
that conditions had changed greatly since
1800, when the Clayton-Bulwer treaty was
made, and added that while the interest
of Great Britain in constructing a canal
across the isthmus and in maintaining its
neutrality had diminished greatly because
of the construction of the Suez canal, the
interest of the United States in an isth
mian canal had been vastly enhanced be
cause of growing- trade and our new ac
quired possessions in the Orient. He said
that while England demanded the United
States should not fortify the proposed
isthmian canal, she herself had fortifica
tions which practically controlled the
Suez canal. He read copious extracts
from speeches by Stephen A. Douglas,
Secretary Frelinghuysen and Secretary
Blame (the last mentioned in his instruc
tion of Minister Lowell) in support of his
position. He called attention to the fact
that the Hepburn bill provides explicitly
for the defense of the canal, and he as
serted that the treaty should be defeated
outright and the canal bill presented in
its stead.
Senator Ma^on spoke in support of his
suggested amendment, authorizing the
United States to defend the canal as it
deemed proper, in case it constructs the
canal. He presented the arguments in
support of our right to defend the water
way in concise and forcible terms, and
received careful attention. He corrected
at the outset the impression that in his
effort to have the treaty amended he ?s
seeking to antagonize the administration.
Nothing, he said, was further from n:s
thought, because he believed that in this,
as in all other matters, the administration
had been entirely patriotic. His differ
ence of view was ;lue, he said, to a differ
ent conception of the way to reach a com
mon end, that common end being the wel
fare of the American people.
He then proceeded to make his argu
ment for the right to defend the canal in
case this country constructs it with its
own money. He declared that the present
instance furnishes the first precedent of
a great nation being asked to agree not
to defend a great pub'le work, the con
struction of which it is contemplating.
He did not consider that Great Britain
should undertake to say what we should
do in the matter. At the same time he
said he would have it understood that
he was not actuated in his position by
any hostile feeling towards Great Brit
ian, for while he considered that country
in the sere and yellow leaf," he thought
that we should deal with it as we would
with either the weakest nation or the
strongest. In other words, lie said, our
dealings should be on the plane of jus
The senate in executive session to
day agreed to give its ad.hesion to the
convention to regulate the importation o*
intoxicating liquors into certain regions
of Africa.
The senate was in open session only an
hour today, the remainder of the leg
islative day being spent in executive ses
sion upon the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
Mr. Chandler (N. H.) created a little flur
ry by endeavoring again to get up the
resolution relating to the Montana sena
torial case. The effort was futile. No
legislative business, aside from the pur
est routine, was transacted.
The president today sent the following
nominations to the senate:
Army—Lieut. Col. John- Claque, as
sistant commissary general, to be as
sistant commissary general with rank of
colonel. Maj. William L. Alexander, com
missary, to be assistant commissary gen

A bill extending to the homestead set

of the measure, in an effort to make it
general in its application, it was recom
mitted to the committee.
The Indian aOiV*o»)riaU»»n bill was com

closely followed by t£e $5,000 additional
