For some unexplained reason the halo of light that illuminates the big clock in the pitjf hall tower failed in its cheer to the belated traveler and the denizens of Newspaper Row last night. Dark ness. Kuyptian in its intensity, held forth where the big orb is wont to be and peo ple wondered. The "glim" failed in its mission about 1C o'clock and the faces that of habit looked upward at their old friend were mystified^ The messenger boys gather ed in groups to discuss the cause, while the belated travelers wending their weary way homeward from lodge stopped in at the neighboring saloons and compared notes. It was a momentous question, this eudden departure of an old friend, sel dom given to caprices and whose habits v, ere as steady as the day. What con clusion was reached is not known, bat more than one who wakes up this morn ing after a weary night vigil will be sure to inquire about the fate of his old friend and be pleased to know that he is still there. The big bell tolled off the hours us of old, but it was only until the orb of day peeped over the horizon that its familiar face once more beamed down oi those that hurried along the streets. The cause was a defective fuse which will be repaired today. Confident in I. Loans to salaried people. Only security yorr name. Rl7 Pioneer Press building. MONEY IN PINE FORESTS. Gen. C. C. Anilrc«» Lecture* on State KoresSry Resources. A rtereoptlcon lecture on forestry was given by Gen. C. C. Andrews at the Col lege of Agriculture yesterday afternoon. Jn part, he said: "A characteristic feature of our rural landscape is the modest dwelling' and large barn. The large bj.rn! How much is expressed in those few words. Surely the barnboilder is one of the principal consumers of lumber. There are JO.oOO.O'jO acres of land 'n Minnesota suitable for agriculture, but not yet cultivated, and the progress of its development will de pend not a little on the cheapness of ium ber. Six million dollars' worth of pine, just aa it stands in the woods, is cur in Minnesota every year, and much of it is shipped out ot the state. Already four kinds of lumber from the Pacific coast arc now found in most of our lumber yards, competing with home products. The modern demand for forest products is novel and extensive. Ii; takes annually S.OGO acres of spruce forest for pulp for the paper for a certain daily newspaper in New York. "On an average, it takes a.bout eighty years for the nine to grow to merchanta ble size. There are millions of acres in our state unfit for anything but growing pine; on some of the land pine forest is partly grown, and it seems to be the general impression that :t would be good economy for the state to gradually ac quire possession of such land and pro mote the growth of pine forest upon it. "The leading- principle of scientific for estry is that coniferous forest should oc cupy only land that Is too sandy, too hilly or too rocky for agriculture. When young the forest should be crowded to promite height, growth and yield long, clear steins. A normal forest should be treated as a permanent capital and no more be. cut in a year than equals the growth in the same period. In the 432,*00 acres of slate forest in Saxony, on non agricultural land, the average growth Is 225 feet board measure per acre annually or OT.UOO.COO feet in the whole forest; and' that quantity can annually be cut with out impairing the capital. There Is a for estry movement In thin country. Shall Minnesota be in the front or rear?" Teachers at Asn-lcuUurnl School. The teachers of the West Side Neigh borhood house spent the day yesterday at the state agricultural school," examin ing the several departments there es pecially the sewing and the cooking.

The purchases of the elder Dalrymple originally included 30,000 acres. divided into three immense farms, situated at Castleton, Gardner and Hague, N. D. Extraordinary success attended the ef forts of the Diilrymples from the first and in a few years they were amoii% the largest Individual wheat raisers in the United States. From time to timo lnige tracts of their holdings were sold off, lr.it the family is still the largest, holder of wheat producing land in the Northwest. Mr. A. R.

An Old Fi<«li Knows Good Daft From Poop. A good old family -Doctor down In Kdenburg, -Miss^ says he is not afraid to tell the truCk about coffee and its c-ffect on him and the remarkable change produced by leaving off and tak ing Tost am Food Coffee in its place. He used coffee for many years, and says, "Of late years I have been so nervous that 1 dreaded to perform an operation and my eyesight had bothered me a considerable. I think about two years ago I first heard of Postum Food Coffee, and gave it a trial. I am not quick to bite at humbugs, but the change* in my physical condition brought about by leaving oft" coffee and taking Pos tum Food Coffee was a complete surprise. ] began to eat well, sleep well, and in .Hist three months my eyesight was re stored, my nerves strong, headaches dis appeared, and my chronic catarrh of thirteen years' standing was cured with little or no treatment except the change in coffee. I am today stout, erect, and weigh 20 pounds more than I did before giving up coffee. I have an extensive practice and have had very satisfactory results among my patients where I have Induced them to leave off coffee and take Postum in its pluce. Coffee is ruining and destroying thous. nnda of oar young Americans, and it is a pleasure to know of a nutritious ani palatable breakfast beverage that re builds the nervous system rather than tears it down, as the old coffee does. It may interest you to know that we had much the same experience as many others, when we first began to prepare Postum. We boiled it In a desultory sort of way for a few minutes and the product ■was not satisfactory. Turning; to the directions we discovered the fault and from that time we have followed those directions which are simple enougn, with the most satisfactory results Ui point of llavor and fowl value. With my best wishes for your contin ued success." Dr. A. G. Alston. HARD TO NAIL BLIND PIGS. IPollce Experiencing Great: Difficulty , in Securing: Evidence. : • - " No arrests have been made as yet as a Iv w tlle Promised crusade against } he,. bling pig S " said t0 be flourishing in the Midway district, but it is possible that something will be done next week. The police have been instructed to close up the places wfcfcreVer found, but such to the assistance* fetfen by sympathizers, it Is said, it Is almost impossible to se cure evidence sufficient to convict. As a more effpotfcv* method of stamp ing out the evil, ii& committee which appeared before thlj police board last week, is preparing 10 appear before the grand jury at its- next sitting and ask that the alleged joints be inquired into with a view of criminally proceeding against those who conduct them. A possible method of successfully get ting after the 'goirfts presented itself when three boys .called at the oity clerk f office yestH-day with a view ot ascertaining if money'was paid for evi dence that would assist in convicting proprietors of biind pigs. They informed the officials that they knew of a number,,«but were not willing to impart any irrforniation unless it was paid for.

LOUIS IS WELL KNOWN HERE WAS CRAZED BY JEALOUSY Set Fire to House In Wliieh Lived Object of His Passion—\ulsiei ons» ENeapailes in St. Paul. James Marosch, who formerly lived at 421 Superior street, in this city, is und?r arrest in St. Louis, for setting fire to the home of Afigelo De Sota, Wednesday ni£bt. Pel.. 6, the deed having been actu ated by Mareseh's insane jealousy of a girl, Fanny Duffy, a servant in the Cavendar family, who occupied apart ments in the De Sota house. For three years he had been madly in love with the Duffy girl, and once be fore attempted to kill her. Meeting h?r on the street one day about two years ago he became enraged because she re buffed his advaifces and, whipping out a revolver, fired five, shots at the terri fied girl. Owing ,to his poor marksman ship none of the) buMcts took effect an-I he was immediately placed under arrest and later sent to:;the St. Louis work house for a tejm of t,ix months. The incarceration yd id not dampen the ardor of his afliections, and upon his release he once more proceeded to make life miserable for .the girl. According to his story he proposed to Miss Duffy, Tuesday night, Feb. 3, and she angered him so by her that ho deter mined to make ha^jsjificr. On the follow ing night he went >to the house where she was employed; and set the fire which almost resulted in a number of inmates losing their lives. Miss Duffy and Mr. Cavender were badly, burned and the rest escaped without injury. Suspicion point ed to Maresch, who had threatened, and he was placed under arres^. He now confesses the crime and says he was driven insane through his love for the girl. But love is not the only passion that has crazed Maresch and excited him to crime. In 1883 he was arrested and con victed in this city on a charge of bur glary. He broke into the home of T. C. Jones, Ninth and St. Peter streets, ami sold goods which he laler disposed o:" at a Seventh street pawnshop. Both Mr. Jones and the pawnbroker testihei against him, and he was, sent to Stili vater for two years. At the expiration of his- term Ire r<-« turned to St. Paul and sought out Mr. Jones and the pawnbroker, determined to avenge himself. - Both men, however, had moved, a.nd Mareach was unanle to taste the sweets of vengeance. But n some maner he became convinced that Thaddeus C. Jones, who lived at sf>s Grand avenue, was the same Mr. Jones whom ho had robbed, and one evening proceeded to his house and, after ringing the door bell, was confronted by Mr. Jones. "Without hesitating to make any inquiries, he leveled n revolver at Mr, Jones' breast, and with all good inten tions, pulled the trigger. The gun for. tunately Jailed to go.off, but, undaunt ed, he whipped out a knife and inflicts a deep gash in his viJlim's left arm. Ho was then frightened away. Later Mareseh. was arrested and Iden tified. When taker, to court he eluded his guards and jumped through a win dow. Amid the .consternation that fal lowed, a reported li ft through the game exit and kept dope on Mrnresoh's trail until he was finally caught. He w:t? again presented >yith a pass entitling hirr; to a bunk in the penitentiary, but af ter being therej a year was adjudged insane and sent tor Rochester. Two years later he was released from the asylum, and he then went to Chicago, where he was soon again 'convicted of crime ana sent to ifride-welF I'6r/a year. At the ex piration of his t^ml^c went to St. Lot:ia and he fell in love with Fany Duffy. DIX DUB; TO RESIGN. MAJ. DEXSY A.ND EX-ALD. BELL MENTIONED AS SUCCESSORS* The next meeting of the assembly, which will be held next week, will prob ably see the resignation ol" President Dix, and the election of his successor. Mr. Dix, on March 1, takes the oflice cf cleik of the municipal court. There is considerable speculation as to who his successor will Be, and,'white there arc any number of candidates, the one who will be "it" is yet to be Timed. Ex-Aid. Bell, by reason of his con nection with the recent quo warranto proceedings, is looked upon as the most likely candidate. In pushing the pro ceedings he did so at the behest of many who thought that there might be a possibility or getting- their old jobs back. and his election to the assembly Would be as a reward for his trouble. The Lincoln club, of which he is a member, is backing him. The probable president of the assembly will be Maj. Denny, who is now the vice president. MAYOE WILL APPOINT GRODE. He Will Secure Vacancy on Board of Public Works, A decided change in the political com plexion of the board of public works began with yesterday, when Mayor Smith announced that he would appoint John S. Grode as a member of the boani. With March 11 the 'board will perform its official dutie3 with only three mem bers. President Ames, and Commissioner Pottgieser retiring on that date. By this procedure the makeup of the board will consist of Commissioners Mabon, Ham mer and J. S. Grobe. who will remain in office until MarA 1302. On that date three new members will be appointed for terms of one, tw» and three years. By virtue of his office Mayor Smith will se lect the new officials, a majorltv of. •whom will be Democrats. HAS TOO MANY WIVES. J. A. Taylor,, ot, Dulnth, to Be Bronght Hook From Seattle. Gov. Van Sant yesterday issued a requisition on th6'£o*ernor of Washing ton for the return to this state of James A. Taylor, who is wanted in Duluth on the charge of having taken unto himself a wife more than the regulation number of times. The man, from papers in th« case now on file in Gov. Van Sant's: of fice, i" apparently something of a Don Juan, : lacking. - however, - the - ability to get;outp; entangling: allianjes. Hie is now in. jail in Seattle, where he will be held until he can, be returned to this state to face the charges against him. . mm n in DEMOCRATIC COINCILMEN MAY SEX.ECT ONE AT A CON FERENCE OBJECTIONS TO A CAUCUS New Plan Obviates Many Objection able Feature* of v Cancns, and "Will Prove Satis factory to- All. With the near approach of March, anJ the date calling for the retirement of James E. Markham as corporation attor ney, not a iittle interest is being mani fested in the outcome of the controversy now on among the Democratic members of the common council in an effort to name his successor. The time-honored caucus, called on no loss than three occasions, has failed of results, as many members of the Demo cratic majority refused to be bound by the alliances they would necessarily en tail, and in consequence the Republican contingent, taking it for granted that the deadlock is permanent, have been con gratulaing themselves on the prospect, of re-«lecting the present incumbent. There is a rift in the clouds, however, and the close of the month will proba bly sm Mr. Markham's finish and his retirement to private life on the date named by the charter, March 12. In stead of a caucus with its entangling al liances, a conference of the Democratic members has been proposed, allowing each member to name his preference, with the consequent discussion that can not but result in the selection of a man acceptable to all. The gentlemen who have refused to be bound by a caucus, it is un derstood, are favorable to a conference, and one will be called as soon as Presi dent Schiffmann arrives from the East, which will probably be the latter part of the month. By the requirements of the charter an election must be held on the second Tuesday in March, otherwise the city will be without a legal adviser. Oddly enough, Mr. Markham cannot taJte the customary manner of waiting until his successor is elected, but must give way at once. ED PAY I SHI FORMER ADJT. CES. LAMBERT IS WORKING FOR THE SPOOLER AMENDMENT MEANS MUCH FOR VOLUNTEERS AssTcple Amount That Will Be Disbursed In Minnesota Alone Will Approximate $15,00-0. • , Former Adjutant General Lambert is now busily engaged in backing up Sena tor Spooner's amendment to the army appropriation bill In congress, which con templates giving to all the volunteers in the army sums equal to those given to the soldiers whose furloughs were broken into. This amendment, if carried, will mean a great deal for the former volun teers of this and of other states. Mr. Lambert lias written to Minnesev ta's senators and representatives in con gress and has been given assurances that everything will be done that can be. Dur ing the Indian outbreak at Leech Lake about 400 members of the Twelfth and Fourteenth regiments were recalled from furloughs anel ordered back to duty, and to all these extra compensation for such service has been given. The bill under discussion proposes to give the remaining me-mbers of the two regiments each a sum equal to that paid the men on fur lough. Counting 1,300 men to a regi ment and an average of $^0 per man, the state will receive about $45,000. A first sergeant will get $30, a second lieuten ant $100, a first lieutenant $125 and pri vates $15.50. Mr. Lambert says that all regiments mustered out prior to Jan. 12, 1899, in other states, will come under the amend ment. There will be about twenty-eight states in all and the grand total to be paid out to soldiers will be In the neigh borhood of one and a quarter million. Mr. Lambert has written to almost every adjutant general In the United States and almost everyone to a man will back up the amendment as far as lies in their power. Senator Spooner's amendment is practically the same one Mr. Lambert had introduced in congress through Senator Davis of this state. The amendment was butchered by the treas ury department so only those who had their furloughs broken into received any money. Two Appointments Hade. Otlo Gifvert, "West Duluth, has been made inspector of the dairy and food de partment in his district. Wairy and Food Commissioner McConnell appointed him yesterday afternoon. Dr. H. A.

'-■ Judge Pond and a jury yesterday took up the case of Dr. Samuel Friendlander against Police Officer Fred M. Garvin and Mrs. Florence Sullivan. The suit is' brought for $5,060 damages for alleged false imprisonment. In his complaint the plaintiff alleges that on the afternoon of July 6 last the defendant, Garvin, encouraged and di rected by the defendant, Florence Sulli van, drugged him from his office in the block at the corner of Third street and Nicollet avenue, and, in the presence of a large crowd of pedestrians, caused him to be removed to the police station, where he was wrongfully locked up on the chargti of disorderly conduct. Replying to the complaint, Mrs. Sulli- Van alleges that the plaintiff is an ex citable person, possessing an uncontrol lable temper, and that he is vindictive and revengeful to a high degree. She also alleges that he attempted to use a revolver upon other persons prior to the day of his arrest; that they had quar reled previously, and that he had men aced her with a lance. WAS XOT MRS.

A \ woman stood before the bar, and the j officer was expecting a. crash. But if , this was' his hope he was disappointed, I as a loud feminine laugh reverberated i through the room, following by: "Ho, boys; here's looking at you." The.officer then.stepped on the inside, and found that a party of ten men and women was having a very sociable time. As spectacles of this kind are something that the present administration has de cided to put an end to, the party was i locked up and charged with being dis orderly. H;>.m Done -\o Bmaln.es*.

It was two weeks ago yes terday since he was elected to the posi tion by the county commissioners,- and although fourteen days have passed, he has not done a stroke of business. Dur ing the present month there has been a dearth of accidents of any kind. Xs'ot only have there beeen no fatalities that call for the use of the morgue wagon, but very few minor accidents have oc curred. The city hospital people say that they can not reme; .i,«-r the time when so few visitations have been paid the institution by the patrol wagon, which ordinarily brings accident cases there. The police say that the thing is too good to last, and that some big sensa tion is brewing. They Had Too Good a Time. William Moore and Fred Hopwood started out for a real jolly time la.:-st night, and commenced by abusing John Chapman, a newsboy. The lad says that I the two slapped him and tore up his fca- i pers. After having satisfied tftemseJ that there was no more amusement to be ! derived from this source, they went down j to XO7 First street south and proceeded | to kick in a show case. The result was that Hopwood had his foot cut, and I left a trail of blood leading from the i store to his room, at Nicollet avenue and Third street. Young Chapman was out for revenge, and hud followed the two to the candy store. When he learn- i e<l that the show case was smashed he i started on a little detective work of his 1 own. He discovered the bloody foot j prints, and followed them to Hop wood's ! room. He then summoned a couple of j police officers, and the two were arrest ed and looked up on a charge of disor derly conduct. MORE CHICAGO FIRES. HOTEX, MAJESTIC ABLAZE IX FOtlt DIFFERENT PLACES.
