PAIL TEMPORARILY ASSUMES PC'S IT ION LEFT VACANT MY iiEX. WADE. Maj. Gen. Otis, commander of the de partment of the lakes, and temporary commander of the department of the Da kotas, arrived yesterday from Chicago, accompanied by Inspector General C. H. Murray as aid. The late comma.nder-in chief in the Philippines will remain in charge of the local department until a successor to Brig. Gen. Wade is ap pointed. Gen. Schwann met Gen. Otis at the de pot, and during his stay in St. Paul will be the host of his late comrade in arm a in the Philippines. The greater part of the day was spent at the army building by the new commander, who occupied the time familiarizing himself with the de tails of the business of the department. He is not a stranger to this part of the country, for twenty-six years ago he served for two years as the inspector general of the department. Since then, however, he has not been in the Twhi Cities, except for a brief visit In 1384. Questioned as to his opinion of the situation in the Philippines,' he replied that, as an officer, he was not at liberty to discuss it in a satisfactory way. He did say, though, that the wealthier peo ple, as a class, favored the United States, and many, If not most, of the common classes were also in sympathy with the cause of the Stars and Stripes, but it would be unwise to withdraw the protec tion afforded by the presence of the troops, as Ladrones would immediately beconje unruly and would- advance upon the towns and commit depredations. The present stay of the general will last until the end of the week, and after that ho will come to St. Paul whenever his presence is required until relieved. Gen. Wade left last night for San Fran cisco, and he will sail for Manila March 1. PERSONALS. Mrs. E. P.

MISHYH WELL KNOWN CHARACTER IS CHARGED "WITH COMPLICITY IS Ct'DAHY KIDNAPING MR. BAUM GOES A-SLETTTHING Foxy (tamer's Saplency Blade to Look Like Three Dimes* by a ' St. Paul Amateur Slier- P^^ lock Holmes. Ts It a pipe? The county officials look serious, the city officials grin, the people want to know and Pat Hussey says it makes him laugh. None can. deny that it has start ed some thinking. Early yesterday morning Sheriff Justus, accompanied by several of his deputies and an alleged detective, John M. Baum, went to the home of Pat Hussey, a well known local character, and after arous ing the house and compelling all the inmates to undergo close scrutiny, took Pat into custody and marched him to the county jail, refusing to make any ex planations. Naturally the other members of the family became alarmed and feared that it must have been an unusual crime which prompted such a mysterious ar rest. Attorney George Walsh was re tained by Mrs. Mary Hussey and the for mer sprung a surprise In the police coart in the afternoon by requesting Judge Hine to have Hussey produced in court. With apparent surprise the court stated that he had been Informed of no such ar rest, but Attorney Walsh was persistent and the county attorney was sent for. Mr. Kane admitted that Hussey was under arrest and stated that the arrest was on a warrant charging him with complicity in the kidnaping of Edward Cudahy at Omaha, Neb., Dec. 18. Then came the laugh. "Long Pat Hus sey," as he is dubbed in the warrant, came limping into the court room' and looked at Judge Hine as though he were telling a funny story as the latter read a grave and legal document charging Pat Hussey with being an accomplice of Pat Crowe. Everybody grinned. It was too good. Harmless Pat Hussey, who was never known to have a serious thought, unless he were thirsty, suddenly had been dis covered as a fugitive from justice and In connection with one of the most mys terious and boldest crimes of the nine teenth century. Pat Hussey had been leading a dual life, and instead of bein^ the bland "can rusher," for which he had been taken, might at that very moment be jingling gold pieces in his ragged pockets that had been deposited with a red lantern in the midle of a deserted road by a frightened father who feared for the life of his son. PAT SAT AND SMILED. Despite the new aspect that life hail assumed, Pat found it impossible to take himself seriously. He sat in a corner and smiled at his acquaintances outside the railing. "Fugitive from justice," that beats being drunk, surmised Pat. When Attorney Walsh asked Judge Hine to fix bail, the latter said that, de spite the seriousness of the charge he would allow the defendant to go upon his own recognizance, and that ended Pat's, troubles for one day. John M. Bavin, the detective who caus ed the excitement, Is unknown by the police or any of the private detect.ye agencies. He lives in St. Paul, and, so far as known, this is his first attempt as a sleuth. He claims to have the tip from the inside, and asserts that "the woman with the gold tooth," .who figured in the kidnaping, is a former wife from whom he has separated: He assured local police officials three weeks ago that it would be no trouble for him to locate Pat Crowe and all his gang. He only de sisted because he wanted to arrange mat ters so that he would be sure of the re ward. He claims that, long before the kidnap ing occurred, his wife and H. E. Miller, alias John E. Layne, a prominent Min neapolis business man. and pat Hussey, were intimate with Crowe and his gang, that they all answer to descriptions af forded by young Cudahy, and that they were to Omaha at the time of the of fense. To make it still stronger he as serts that the real Pat Crowe is in Min neapolis and will be under arrest today. WHOLE THING PREPOSTEROUS. . When seen last evening, Mrs. Hussey stated that she regarded the whole p«H ceedings as being preposterous. She was very much mortified at the unwelcome notoriety by which her family had sud denly been covered. When asked as to her sons whereabouts Dec. 18, she said: "1 am not surf that Pat was in town at the time of the kidnaping. Either at tnat time or very shortly after he went to Bathgate. N. D., to look after my prop erty there. I believe that he d d not leave until Dec. 20. However, we can easily prove that he was not in Omaha. The whole thing is too ridiculous to be given serious consideration, and the man who caused the arrest plunged himself into a lot of trouble." Pat Hussey is thirty-seven years old and single. He was raised on a farm m North Dakota, and came to St. Paul to live with his sisters and mother about ten years ago. He has been an invalid most of the time and has led rather a useless life, but has never been susrected of crime A number of times he has been arrested for being drunk, but never on a more serious charge. Those who know him do not hesitate to question the san ity of the "detective" who, in some mys terious way, found that he was implicat ed in the Cudahy mystery. While St. Paul was heing worked up over the arrest of Hussey, Minneapolis was treated to a similar surprise, and Mr Lavne member of the contracting firm of Cosier & Lane, was placed under arrest and introduced to the onicials as Pat Crowe. He was released upon his own recognizance. OMAHA DEVELOPMENTS. OM4.HA, Neb., Feb. 21.-James Calla han under arrest in connection with the Cud'ahy kidnaping, was called before Judge Vinznhaler tc«ay and arraigned on three complaints-giand larceny, robbery and false imprisonment. Callahan plead ed not guilty to all the charges. He had not secured counsel, and further pro ceedings were postponed until Monday next. Bail was fixed at $7,500, and in de fault Callahan was remanded to jail. The strongest identification of Calla han thus far us one of the Cudahy kid napers was that of Mrs. George F. Wit tum, who this morning picked him out of a line of five prisoners as they march ed by her at the city jail. Two days ago her husband. Attorney George F. Wittuia had identified Callahan under similar cir cumstances. The identification made by Mrs. Wittum lis considered especially good, as various means were employed to confuse her and shake her judgment, but she remained firm in her decision that Callahan was the man she saw in the neighborhood of the Melrose hill prison house ten or twelve times during the two weeks im mediately preceding the abduction. Chief of Police Donahue stated tonight that he knew nothing of the arrest at St. Paul. He further said that he has recently received some letters from Baum, who is not an Omaha man, but, the chief thinks, connected with some local agency, in which Baum said ,he thought he had two men located who ho was sure were connected with the kidnaping. The chief says that he thinks Baum is wrons. The chief has given Callahan another "sweat-box" examination, but he says it developed nothing.

Q. ■I All II COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OVERLOOK ■ •.. FACT THAT HE MUST ; HAVE ' RESIDENCE! IK U CONTRACTOR GET MORE TIME Work of Tearing Down Old Jail Will Be si f« as Soon as Ter n. pora'rj''Cells Are 3 ConiiAeted. The board of county commissioners at :ts meeting late yesterday aftsrnoon, sud denly discovered* that, in arranging for temporary quarters for the prisoners, the matter of securing'a residence for the sheriff, while the? he* jail is building, ha.l been entirely forgotten. The board was not sure as to'whether or not it had the right to prbvjde a temporary resi dence for the sheriff and the matter was left with the county attorney to investi gate and report. A representative of the Roberts Archi tectural and Ornamental Iroti company was present and asked that further time be given in which to complete the tem porary jail, as the workmen had been delayed in getting the old Iron out of the old jail to be used for the cells in the temporary jail. The request v/as granted providing that it would not interfere with -the tearing down of the old jail. The Dwyer Plumbing and Heating com pany were also granted further time. The final estimate of the Dwyer company on the temporary jail for $1,020 was approv ed, subject to.the sanction of the surety company. The board also decided to I'ave the extra excavation under the naw jail at a cost of $9,815. It was expected that the county, com lnissioners would take some- action on electing a superintendent of construction for the new Jail, but for some reason the matter was not taken up. The lead ing candidates for this position, which pays $5 per day, are O. L«. Rheaume and E. K. Kirkland. The work of putting In the cells in the temporary jail in the court house is pro gressing very slowly, but it is expected that all but five of them will be ready for occupancy by next Thursday. The twenty-seven prisoners now in the coun ty jail will then be transferred, an-l the work of tearing down the old jail will commence. An opinion was received from County Attorney Kane in regard to Commission er Powers' resolutioiiv to grant Abstract Clerk Schulze a vclerk at $75 per month, in which the county attorney held that the board did not have any right to pai,s such a resolution. Xfe far as the resolu tion was concerned i,\ did not even come up for consideration after the county attorney's opinion iia-d been read. It Is now up to Schulae, therefore, to do the best he can vvith what he gets out of the fees com fAg 'Into the office. DIED WHILE AT WORK.

Minneapolis News. ■IIJIII HOW HAMII/rON WAS FIXAI.L.Y CONVICTED OP MAX SLAUGHTER EIGHT WERE FOR ACQUITTAL Sickness la Juror Rll>koii'm Family Helped to Expedite Asret-uicut —Three Resolute for Conviction. <_ It is reported that one of the jurors in the Hamilton tr-ial yesterday told the Story of the deliberations in* the jury room, and how after nearly forty hours of wrangling a compromise agreement was finally reached. According to what he is reported to have disclosed eight of the twelve jurors were for acquittal for thirty straight hours. From the moment they retired to the jury room, these men announced their position and refused to budge. J\f ror William H. Gibson, who had sick ness in his family, was sorely distressed, and speedily elicited the sympathies of j his colleagues. He begged them to come I to a decision of some kind so he could get away. As he was one of those who stood for acquittal, he had the majority with him. About midnight, Tuesday night, the jurors agreed upon a verdict of manslaughter, partly owing to Mr. Gibson's distress. Other considerations TTad their influ i>ee upon the eigtit who favored acquituil. One of these was that unless they gave tn there would be a disagreement and an other trial at great expense to the coun ty. Moreover another trial :n Hennepm county would be impossible, since it wquU uot be possible to secure a jury, and a change of venue to some other county would be necessary. This would not only make heavier ex pense but the probabilities were that 4, jury in some other county would convict Hamilton of murder in the first or sec« ond degree and he would either be hunjf or go to prison for life. So those for ac auittal felt they were really doing botd Hamilton and the county a service by giving in and reaching a verdict. Before the agreement was finally reach ed. Juror Wetherby was ready to cast his vote with the majority, but Messrs. Lincoln, Raymond and Peabody stood firm and refused to hear to a "not guil ty" verdict. Mr. Wetherby voted ac cording to his convictions when the final vote was taken. Neither Oakley nor Anderson, it is declared, was among the original four for conviction. The prisoner Hamilton Is naturally downcast at the verdict and he is now hoping that the efforts of his counsel to secure a new trial will be crowned with success. He had all along felt con fident of an acquittal or a disagreement. and the shock, when the decision of the jury was announced, almost overcame him. When told that eight of the jury men had from the first favored an ac quittal he brightened up, and remarked that this fact constituted sufficient grounds for a new trial. His physician, Dr. Stone, says that the close confine ment is having a serious effect on the health of his patient, who, being con sumptive, naturatTy requires plenty of out-door exercise.
