OFFICIAL PAPER
OF THE
CITY OF ST. PAUL.
VOL. XXIV.-ISO. 3.
1111 IB
IMTED STATES CONGRESS WILL
GET TO WORK AGAIN
TODAY
Ml' II TO !)« IS TWO IBOITHS
1\ THE SENATE THE ARMY REOR
GANIZATION BILL IS PAR
AMOINT
SHIP SUBSIDIES MUST WAIT
In the House the Renpportionmcnt
Mill Will Be Fruitful of Bit- '
ter Discussion -^ and
Much Debate.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2.—The general
expectations among senators is that the
iirst tew days of the time of the senate
nvening tomorrow wlil hi devot
ed to reconsideration of the army reor
ganization bill but there is some disposi
tion to make an arrangement for a divi
sion of time that will permit of the con
tinued presentation of the ship-subsidy
bill .luring a part of each day.
When the committee of order of busi
ness representing the Republican side of
the senate made the subsidy bill the
regular order of business at the begin
ning of the present session there was an
understanding that with the army bill
should be presented for consideration the
other measure should be laid aside temp
orarily if considered necessary in order
to secure the prompt passage of the army
bill. There is apparently a disposition
on the pait of some senators partially
to disregard this agreement ■ and the
friends of the subsidy bill, most of whom
are also supporters of the army bill, are
trying to secure an understanding for
confinement of the discussion of the army
bill to the morning hour of the sen
ate's daily proceedings, giving the time
each day after 2 o'clock to the subsidy
bill. *
A meeting of the committee on military
affairs has been called tomorrow when
the matter of procedure probably will b3
discussed and a decision reached as to
whether the committee will ask for all
the time of the senate until its bill is
disposed of or for only part of it Some
members of the committee are disposed
to divide time with the subsidy bill for
the present but all "senators regardless
of politics, consider the army bill of
pressing importance.
3demise of the fact that the time for
which the volunteer soldiers in the Phil
ippines were enlisted has almost ex
pired, it is probable that some
arrangement will be reached guarding
against any protracted delay on the mili
tary measure. While comparatively few
of the opposition senators will vote for
that bill none of them appears willing
lo make any objection to its early con-
lideration.
There has been a general suirmi-e that
Mr. Coekrell would offer a substitute for
Use army bill, but he stated today he
had no such intention at the same rim
expressing his conviction that the bi'.l
should be pressed to early disposition be
• the condition in the Philippine-.
Mr. Coekrell expressed the further
opinic.n that the army bill would not
bo debated at great length until there
should be at the same time an attempt
to (;ury the subsidy bill alonp with it
lr. that event he th< nprht it most dif
flcult to s<-t the army bill through
promptly. The opposition senators gen
• i-.i!!> will content themselves with an
explanation of their views upon the army
bill and will make no opposition to its
iK a law.
There are -=-1131 several speeches to be
made upon the subsidy bill, but apparent
ly none of the promised speeches has
been prepared ?o .that Senator Hawley
may t> ab!e to go on uninterruptedly for
.some tim<- with the army bill regardless
of any arrangement concerning the sub
sidy bill.
IX THE HOUSE.
The house probably will dispose of the
rc-apportionnent bill this week, although
Chairman Burton, of the river and
committee, te inclined to contest the
right ■>( v.jy with the census committee'
The reappurtionment WH, carrying out
as it does a constitutional requirement 's
R m::ttc-r of higher privileae thf;n an ap
propriation bill and if Chairman Hopkins
Insists it probably will be given prio.-itv.
Mr Hopkins, however, may yield if he
tint's that any large proportion of the
members will not rott:rn from their hoi",
day vacation in time to vote upon the
measure this week. A very determined
Uglii will be made against his bill by
mcmbi is from states \vuich lose rerrc
sentatives under it and Mr. Hopkins de
s'res a full house when the vote la
taken.
He Is confident that his measure will
carry with a full attends nee. In any
event, mithrr Mr. tiopkins nor Mr. Bur
ton desires to proceed tomorrow so that
•Hon tomorrow probably will be
brief and unimportant. On Friday ci.her
tno harbor or river or reapportionment
bill will bo taken up. If it should be the
latter the expectation is that its con-
Pldoration will be completed on Saturday
If the former the length of time to be
consumed is problematical

Son, Stan J. Don

By order of Gov. I.md the flag floats at
half mast over the capitol, to remain
there until after the funeral of the late
Ignatius Donnelly, wjiich will be held
from the home of his son, Stanislaus J.
Donnelly. 817 Portland avenut, Saturday
at 10 a. m.
Its second lieutenant governor, three
terms a congressman, eight years in the
state senate, and two terms in the house,
would have commanded this tribute of
respect on the part of the state, even ha.l
not tlie governor a personal tribute to
pay as well. He said:
"He was ;i man of commanding intel
lect, a great scholar and a splendid
speaker. I enjoyed a close acquaintance
with him for many years, and found
him oik; of the most charming of men
in his sociul intercourse."
As fully half of the present senate, and
a large representation of the house of
representatives, served with Mr. Donnelly
in those two bodies, it is probable that
large delegations from both houses will
attend the funeral Saturday.
Relatives from Philadelphia and from
Butte are expected to attend the funeral.
As early as 1555, when he was but
twenty-four, Mr. Donnelly, still a resi
dent of Pennsylvania, was tendered a
nomination for the legislature, but de
clined on account of the attitude of the
party on the slavery question. After
coming to this state, which was then
Democratic, he was twice defeated for
state senator before being elected lieuten
ant governor. He was serving as lieu
tenant governor when the civil war broke
out, and when Gov. Ramsey, who was
in Washington, made the first proffer of
troops to President Lincoln, he telegraph
ed to Lieutenant GovernoK Donnelly,
who mobilized the troops with such dis
patch that the First Minnesota regiment
of volunteers ranks first in time of all
the volunteer regiments of the Union
army.
He was re-elected lieutenant governor
in IS6I, and the year afterward was nomi
nated for congress. Within a month, the
Sioux Indian war broke out, and Mr.
Donnelly .loined the volunteers and went
to the front. He did not take his seat in
congress until 1563.
Early in his political career in the
house of representatives Mr. Donnelly
made himself prominent by a letter,which
afterward became famous, protesting
against certain items which had been in
cluded in the budget required to carry
out the conditions of the Chippewa In
diana treaty. Mr. Donnelly characterized
the item as a direct swindle, and exposed
what he believed to be an attempt to rob
the government by a powerful ring. Be
cause of this letter he made many ene
mies. He always thought it was the
cause of the opposition to his renomina
tion. However, he was renominated and
re-elected to congress. He defeated Col.
William Colville, who had commanded
the Fir.=t Minne?ota regiment with dis
tinguished gallantry. During this term
of office Mr. Donnelly engaged in a very
sharp controversy with Elihu Washburne,
and the manner in which he conducted
his side of the arguments and debates
added to his fame.
In 1869 he became a candidate for Unit
ed States senator, but Alexander Ram
sey was given the exalted position in
his stead. Mr. Donnelly took his defeat
bitterly, but continued to act with the
Republican party until 1870, when he ran
for congress on a low tariff platform with
the endorsement of the Democrats. He
was asked to do this by 3.600 Republicans,
who signed a petition. Two years later
he supported Horace Greeley as a liberal
Republican.
His first wife died five years ago. There
were several children by this marriage.
Two sons survive. Dr. Ignatius Donnelly,
Jr., and Attorney Stan Donnelly, of St.
Paul, and a daughter, Mrs. George Gil
linan. Dr. Donnelly is on his way to at
tend the funeral.
In 1597 Mr. Donnelly married Miss Mary
Hanson, daughter of Martin Hanson, of
Minneapolis.

ice. A. F. Lander, of Seattle, was the
latest passenger and he came out on a
bicycle. Mrs. Ballinger, wife of Dr. Bal
linger, who left Dawson on Dec. C for
Skagway and completely disappeared,
also came out by the Victoria. She
heard nothing of her husband, who it
is feared met with foul play, and is now
on her way to seek assistance of rela
tives In Seattle.
An application for a new trial for John
F. Slorah, who murdered his mistress,
was refused at Dawson on Dec. 14 and
the sentence of hanging on March 1 prob
ably will take its course. The wrecked
steamer City of Topeka is reported to
be in good shape and probably will be
successfully raised.
HIS NAME IS DENNIS.
MOIiH.VSKA OFFICERS DID NOT
CATCH CROWE.
CHADRON, Neb., Jan. 2.—lt was re
ported today that the officers who were
reported to have captured Pat Crowe,
the alleged abductor of young Cudahy
of Omaha, while endeavoring to make
good his escape across the Pine Ridge
country yesterday, were thrown off their
guard by Crowe's friends and sympa
thizers, many of whom live near the
agency.
Crowe's friends are said to be spirit
ing him away to the Hole in the Wall
country In Wyoming, where he is to join
an old-time friend and cattle r ustler,
and may enter a secluded life away from
the reacfi of the officers of the law.
The officers yesterday ran down a
Boston curio hunter named Dennis, but
he was released on proving his identity.
J. J. CROWE RELEASED.
YOI'NG CUDAHY FAILED TO IdEX-
TIFY HIM.
OMAHA, Neb., Jan. 2.—Edward A.
Cudahy failed today to identify J. J.
Crowe as one of the men" who kidnaped
him. Shortly after 2 o'clock today the
Cudahy youth appeared at the city jail
and confronted Crowe in the Bertillon
room. After looking at the suspect five
minutes or more young Cudahy remark
ed: "1 never saw that man before. He
is not the one who stood guard over me
and if he had anything at all to do with
the kidnaping I did not see him.''
After making this declaration the lad
was taken before Chief Donahue for a
private conference. Crowe was released
from custody at 3 o'clock. He was tak
en before Judge Learne for a hearing
as no charge was preferred the c^urt
dismissed the case.

Codah;..
OMAHA, Neb., Jan. 2.—Another letter,
printed with a lead pencil was received
by E. A. Cudahy, this afternoon, de
manding the withdrawal of the reward
for the kidnapers. The fact that the ad
dress was printed in similar style to the
former ones, gave rise to the suspicion
before it was opene<£ that it was from
the same course, but, Mr. Cudahy stated
tonight that it was a rank imitation and
said he did not attach the slightest sig
nificance to it. It was mailed in the
postofflce about 3:30 o'clock in the after
noon. He showed the letter to a report
er who called at his home to verify the
report that another letter had been re
ceived from the kidnapers and said it
was evidently patterned after a fac simile
of the former letter that had been print
ed. He said it was of the tame class as
several others that had been received
from various points, except that it had
been printed. He pointed out that there
way, a marked dissimiiaiitybetween it and
the one receive.! from the kidnapers both
in ihe shape of the letters and the gen
l era] wording of it, as well as in the spell
ing. Apparently every word that was
I possible of mis-spelling : was misspelled.
The letter demanded* the withdrawal of
the Cudahy offer of reward and the city's
offer also, under penalty not only of
trouble for the children, but the destruc
tion of the entire "Cudahy family."
The epistle closed with an injunction to
"head this warning.". "In spite of th-3
two fortunes which hqve been offered for
the arrest and convioliop of the Cudahy
kidnapers their secret is still kept. For
several days an optimistic feeling per
vaded police circles. It was argued that
the $50,000 reward mad* startling de
velopments almost sure within a short
time. When John Crowe, brother of Pat
Crowe, was arrested at his home on tne
Broadway road in Council Bluffs, New
Year's day, the general impression was
that some one, to use the police parlance,
had "squealed."'
TOLICE ARE AT SEA.
But this point of view proved to h?
as illusory as some of the fine spun
theories which have gone by the board
within the past two weeks. It was evi
dently the fear that something might
get away that impelled the police to take
Crowe into custody. No evidnce to con
nect him with the kidnaping was adduced
when he was brought'before Judge Leanr
this afternoon. No complaint was file!
against him and he was discharged with
out ceremony.
During the afternooii Eddie Cudahy
was taken to the city jail by Detective
Donahue. In the BerUllon room had
congregated a number of police officer?.
In to this assemblage, Crowe was brought
and Questioned, the purpose being to let
young Cudahy hear -his -foice. The bandit

against him aside from the stories told
of his having often been seen with his
brother Pat prior to the abduction. When
the inquisition was at an end and Ed
die Cudahy declared that the voice of
John Crowe bore no resemblance to the
voice of the guard-. He said in addition
that Crowe was not nearly so stout as
the man who had pointed the revolver
in his face and called him "Eddie Mc-
Gee."
This was interesting to the police in
asmuch as John Crowe is a man five
feet ten inches in height and stout
enough to weigh in the eighborhocd of
200 pouds.
When Crowe was led to the desk of the
sergeant he said to his attorney:
"Some one must have quarreled or pre
tended he knew something. I have not
been out of my house any night for the
past month."
Equally bad fortune befell the police
in their efforts to identify the horse and
buggy belonging t 0 John Crowe.
Secret Service Agent Witten today
stated positively that he saw Pat Crowe
in St. Joseph, Mo., the Friday after the
kidnaping. He does no* thin he was one

Situation of the British in South .Africa Is Be
coming; Serious in the Extreme,
If Not Critical.
Boers Are Everywhere Active and the Cape
Dutch May Rise Against the British
at Any Moment.
CAPE TOWN, Jan. 2.-The British bat
tleship Monarch will land guns tomorrow
as a precautionary measure. The situa
tion is undoubtedly serious.
It is true that the Dutch have not
joined the invaders in any considerable
numbers, but a lack of arms is believe!
to be the true reason for it. In many
places horses are freely offered and In
formation freely supplied to the Boers.
The early proclammation of martial law
in the Cape Town division is expected.
This division does not include Cape Town
itself.
The latest reports show the situation
to be generally as follows:
Kuruman, if still uninvested, probably
win.
Griqual and West is filled with small
parties of Boers, who are working south
toward Prieska for the purpose of co
operating with or supporting Command
ant Herzog, who advance parties are in
the neighborhood of Frazerburg.
The Boers are close to Graaf Reinet,
where of late Dutch have given many de
monstrations of extreme sympathy.
In the eastern part of the colony the
advance guard of the Boers is close to
Maraisburg, about twenty-five miles
northeast of Cradock.
GENERAL RISING FEARED.
The general opinion here is that the
position is not properly, appreciated in
England. The Worcester conference ex
cited the Dutch throughout the colony.
Many old residents, who are by no means
alarmists, regard a general uprising of
the Dutch as quite likely.
The Boers commanded by Hertzog,
Wessels, Pretorius, Nieuwenhaut, are
continuing their march on Frazerburg.
It is reported that they have arrived
at Spionberg.
Looting continues. The Boer rotscs are
footsore and there is great wart for fod
der, as the country is barren.
Communication with Frazorburg is sus
pended and it is doubtful when this will
bo restored, inasmuc'n as the Boers are
traveling along the line. Col. Thorny
croft and Col. De Lisle are continuing
the chase, but their horses and mules
are very tired.
Many Dutch residents attended th*
funeral of a Boer killed in action and
placed wreaths upon his coffin.
The Boers captured and destroyed the
mails due Dec. 30.
MARTIAL LAW.

of people awaited Lord Roberts' arrival
at Trinity pier and landing. Tne field
marshal landed from the royal launch at
3:30 p. m., which was the signal for
deafening shouts of welcome. Princess
