MRS. JOHN KESSEL AND FRANK YOUNG ARE RETURNING TO , MINNEAPOLIS iWERE HEADING FOE THE COAST Got ax . Far as Grand Islam). Neb., and Then .Decided to Itetaru to Minne sota. OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 23.—(Special.) — John Kessel and Frank Young, a Minneapolis couple, rounded up at Grand Island, left Omaha this afternoon for their home In Minneapolis. The couple were never under arrest, their undoing coming last Wednesday afternoon, when a well-dressed, flne looking man and a woman stepped off Union Pacific Train No. 101. This train carried no sleeper. They made inquiries is to when the next train carrying a r would come from the West and were told it would be at 8:30 o'clock in the evening. The two decided to wait for this irain. They were en route to *. a lifornia. Nick Lahann, a farmer living four miles northwest of Grand Island, hap pened Into the depot. Whether he had been advised of the arrival of this pair «>i not was not ascertained. None of the immediate parties in the case were in the city, isk-k Ijtihaim called into consulta tion a police officer. He Wanted advice. In this consultation the fact that there was nothing to show that the couple had traveled a* man and wife was discussed, as klc-o the absence of evidence which might justify an arrest. It was believed, however, that the man and woman were eloping, each being married and leaving a family in Minneapolis. The result of the conference was that both the man and woman went with the farmer to the home of the woman's sister, and left their tickets to California with the local ji^tnt of the Union Pacific to be refunded. On the special homeseekers' tickets the man subscribed the name of Oliver A. Thompson to both his own and the worn tin's ticket. The man offered the woman money to return to her home, stating that he him self, however, could not Igo back, and there are some indications that upon ar rival at the home of her sister the wom an weakened and preferred to go back to her husband and family. It is stated that Young has been har boring more than friendly feelings to ward the woman for over two years, finally inducing her to elope with him and go to California. Young was a South side grocer in Min neapolis and was fairly prosperous, he carrying away in cold cash when he left $3,000. This money his wife claimed to have assisted him in saving, and she at once instituted a search for the husband, with the result that he was detained at Grand Island. DROWVED HER CHILDREN.

BEAHS AND BOBCATS IN MAINE. Approach Civilisation Too Familiar- | ly to Please the Farmers. I.ewiston Correspondence of the Boston Advertiser. ' _ „ , "•Zekel!" is fairly driving the Oxford county farmers distracted. 'Zekel is the amiable black bear that dwells in great abundance up that way. He isn't dangerous. 'Zekel was never known even to make faces at any one that walked upright on two legs like himself. The fact is. 'Zekel is too will fed to be cross; and 'Zekel's well-fed con dition makes the farmers mad. 'Zekel has attained his prime condition on their fat sheep. There are more black bears in Oxford county to the square mile than In any other area in Maine. The residents of the county call themselves "Bears," so noted is the county for its bruins. Ox ford is a land of hills and craggy little mountains, rising abruptly from the r»v --! er meadows. Almost every farm has its j rocky bteeps-a hill humping from the I level of some back pasture. 'Zekel lives j up in his den on the mountain, and finds I it easy to drop down on the flocks and ■ scuttle back to shelter again. Two years • ago the bear bounty in Maine was de i clared off. Now the farmers of Oxford j are piling in petitions by the hundreds 1 ; asking that the bounty be restored. They say that the bears are fairly eat- I ing them up. The "critters" have stolen ! fat sheep, they have broken into the eel ■ lars through the bulkheads, and have ex ■ tracted the best vegetables. They have i even bursted the butter crocks, and some ; mornings when the man of the house : has gone down stairs. to see what has • been happening the language that he has used has been of the sort that isn't tol erated ordinary in Puritanical Oxford county. ; ■■-• -■•:;.: At the last session of the legislature the bounty on wildcats was also lifted. It is now in order for some of the peoplo down in Washington county to follow along behind the farmers of Oxford arid request of the state that a price be placed back on the head of the "loucivee." Mrs. Harriet Bagley, of Whitneyville, will, however, take care of herself on the bobcat Question, even without the state law. She was sitting in her kitchen the other evening- waiting for the men folks to come home. All at once she heard a queer sound at" the -window. There was no curtain there. She look ed and against the glass.was pressed the furry face of a bobcat. A bobcat has a curiously blank coun tenance. His ears stick up straight in an inquisitive fashion, but his eyes are simply . saucerlike, without expression. ! The cat sat perfectly quiet* and stared at ! Mrs. Bagley without winking. There j wasn't even the flutter of his eyelid. Those great round eyes glittered in the frozen night. Tlrey glared and they stared at the woman, who sat and stared back at him. At first she had the un comfortable notion that he would pretty soon make a spring and come through the glass, but he seemed content to sit and look at her. ■ ■-"-.-. ■:-.-;- She recovered her self-possession a lit tle, and commenced to make motions to drive him away. His eyes only grew a bit larger, if that were possible and still he looked at her without winking In a little while Mrs. Bagley grew offended at this close and "bold scrutiny mightily offended at this close scrutiny* She had been reading the fashion page in her weekly paper, and now to save her lire she couldn't get interested in the latest style of skirts. It . was too much for any woman to bear. So she went along to* the wood box and selected a big chunk of birch. Hit, cat never took his eyes off her. His gaze followed her when she boldly went 10 the kitchen door, raised the latch and threw the door open. When the lamp light streamed out into the night down jump ed the bobcat and started to straddle off But Mrs. Bagley aimed her birch stick in such a deadly fashion that she hit him on the head. Sue didn't go out to see what had happened to him, but when the men folks drove up an hour later there was a. dead bobcat in the yard TflE ST.

Her husband, who is t a suc cessful member of the Blue Karth county bar, is always a willing helper in her relief and temperance work, she having served as district president of the W. C T. U. for five years. Mrs. Plymat has served the department as junior vice president and department in spector, and has the indorsement of the Second district convention, San Louden corps, of Mapleton, where she was a charter member, besides the unanimous indorsement of her own corps, which she has helped to build up until it ranks among the best in the state. Mrs. Plymat's name is the first that has ever been indorsed by Alexander Wilkin corps for an office in the depart ment. St. Paul had the presidency in 1396; Litchfleld, In the western part of the state, in 1897; Minneapolis In 1898; Du luth, in the northern portion, had the honors in 1899, and Red Wing in 1900, which represents the eastern section. Believing in an equal distribution of honors, Mankato, the metropolis of the southern part of the state, believes it is her turn to be recognized. The records show - that many weak corps, some of which have already dis banded, exist in the sohthern part of the state, and with the state president located among them they could be built up with little or no expense to the de partment. FIND DEAD MANS LETTER. Officer* Locate "Confession" Which Deepens Montana Death Mystery. HELENA, Mont., Feb. 24.— mystery surrounding the death of Capt. Oliver Dotson, one cf the men who laid out the city of Denver, and was a famous Black 1 hills character, and who was found dead in his cabin in Washington gulch, thirty five miles west of Helena, remains un solved, and. the tragedy promises to de velop one of the most remarkable stories of crime ever heard in this region. The officers, who returned today from Washington gulch, report the finding of an alleged confession signed by Capt. Dotson, in which he declares that his son, Clinton Dotson, his grandson, Oliver Ben son, and Elias Persinger, the latter a youth from Missouri, are Innocent of the murder of Eugene Cultinane, which oc curred in August, ISM, and for which the younger Dotson is now serving a ninety nine year sentence and the other two terms of ten years in the penitentiary. The officers believe the confession to be a clever forgery, but say they cannot prove this until persons familiar with Dotson's handwriting can be found. To all ap pearances Dotson had committed suicide A rifle had been rigged up against the wall and notion had apparently stood in front of it and pulled the trigger with a j string. He was shot through the head. I ISo trace can be found, of the where ■ abouts of the convict who, it is claimed ! murdered Capt.

South Dakota. 111 10 Iff IS WILL PROBABLY BE PASSED BY THE SOTJTH DAKOTA LEG ISLATURE STRONG* DEMAND FOR REFORM Stop Careless Use of Public Funds by State InatitutioHSr-Report on Senate Oil Inspection Measure. PIERRE, S. D.. Feb. 23.—(Special.)— Representative Everett's bill for codifica tion of the laws is different from any other that has been intrqduced. It pro vides that the governor, attorney general and secretary of state shall act as su pervisors of the revision, with power to engage two attorneys to act with the at torney general in performing the worlc. It provides for a total appropriation of $13,000, $2,000 each for the attorneys, $1,000 for the attorney general, $7,000 for print ing, and the remainder for miscellaneous expenses. The commission will make a complete codification and revision of the laws, correcting discrepancies and smoothing out the intracicies of language, but not changing the evident intention of the lawmakers. As each hundred pagea are revised they will be printed from linotype composition, which #111 be held for correction until the final editions are ordered. The work mast be completed by Nov. 1, 1902. The legislature of ISO 3 will further revise the work of the com pilers and will enact it into law, after adding such additional statutes aa it sees fit. After the adjournment of the legislature the work will ■ be corrected and printed from the linotype matter from which the proofs were struck. This bill removes some of the objections that have been urged against previous bills for the same purpose and may pass. Eepresentative Redding has introduced a bill that will receive the commendation of residents in many of the more sparse ly settled regions of the state. In these regions there are many abandoned wells and cisterns that exist as a menace to men and domestic animals;- and scarcely a season passes that human lives are not lost in these traps, to say nothing of the horses and cattle thatjmeet their death in this same manner. -Mr. Redding s bill makes it the duty of the road overseers to locate these daiigerous places and to iill or otherwise mSke safe if the owner of the land or bis agent neglects to do so after proper n&tice, the expense to be charged against the premises as a tax. Senate Bill No. 167, which Is now up to the governor, is onsofkhe most import ant measures of the and * will work a great reform iri the management of the public institutions. If this law had been on the statute books some years ago the state would have been saved the disclosures that have been made before the investigation committee relative to the careless use of public funds that were paid to the institutions for cash items like board, fees for tuition and the sale of merchandise or products. The bill pro vides that all land funds belonging to the state institutions, together with all local collections or fees of every kind, shall be turned into the state treasury, for the benefit of the respective Institutions, by which the same were collected, to be paid out only upon warrants issued by the state auditor. This law will put an end to almost innumerable petty abuses and Indiscretions and remove a seemingly ir resistible temptation from those who have heretofore handled these funds The bill to punisfNthe creating of a deficiency in any of the public institu tions does not seem to be making great Headway. It provides that persons wiio violate its? provisions shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and be subject to a fln.^ and it is understood that the hearls of most of the institutions have put in hard work to defeat it. Existing law prohibits the creation of deficiencies, but pre scribes no penalty, and it is evident it is the penalty to which the gentlemen ob ject. It is said that several members of boards have threatened to resign if the bill passes. The senate oil inspocttcn bill received a favorable committee report in the house, with a few amendments, and is said to s +and a fail r.hancs of passage. It is understood that t*ie supreme court has promised to render a decision In the board of charities case on Wednesday it possible. It is also rumored that in' the event the decision is against the recent appointees, Gov. Herreld will proceed to remove Commissioner Kin^sbury, of Yankton, under the power \csted in him by the new removal Mil; and appoint Mr Lavin in his stead. On Thursday L)r Finnerud was reappointed and confirmed to nil the full term of a member of the beard, his recent appointment being only for the unexpired term of Mr. Oavis, who resigned. A red hot petition aigalnst the enact ment of the pending: rew wolf bounty law was presented and read before the senate on Thursday. It was signed by seventy-five citizens of Stanley county, one of the live stock centers, and created much amusement at the expense of Sena tor Rowe and other ".wolfers." Miuh is heard of the organization that is said to have been formed In the house to defeat certain legislation, particularly appropriations. So far the organization has not shown its hand, at least to the view of outsiders, but the time will come soon when opportunities to harpoon mat ters will occur with sufficient frequency to keep the works red hot. Friends of the bill to remove the reform school fromPlankmton toWatertown are working hard for the success of their undertaking and the agitation has ex tended in several different directions. Besides the proposition to remove the blind asylum from Gary to Plankinton, some talk is heard of removing the Springfield normal to Aberdeen. The lat ter proposition was made direct from headquarters two years ago, but was not entertained by any of the persons direct ly interested. The probabilities are that nothing will come of any of the removal talk this year, either, as few of the friends of the establishment Institutions are willing that a precedent should be es tablished that some day might rise up and smite them.

KID HER PRESSURE UNITED STATES GOVERMUEJiT'S PO SITION IN ITS RETALIATION AGAINST RUSSIA, WAS INSPIRED BY THE TRUST It Is Said Russian Industrie* Would Welcome Any Exonse to Increase the Present Higli Protec tive Protection. ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 24.—The semi official Financial Messenger, In the course of an article denying that sugar exports enjoy either an open or a secret premium from the Russian treasury, points out that the character of the sugar regime of Russia, which hxes the selling price for! the home market at a regularly reduced I rate from year to year, is intended to protect the Russian consumer against the encouragement of exportation at his i expense and that if secret export j premiums exist at all they are due to ' the growing power of trusts and syndic j cates in getting various branches of pro duction into their power, with no other aim than to maintain high prices abroad at the expense of the home market. The Journal de St, Petersburg says: "Will not a dangerous precedent be I created by the desire to prove at any i price that alleged secret premiums are concealed by the Russian sugar regime. If Russia employed the same logic, she ! would, with even greater justification, be driven to impose even greater counter vailing duties upon cast iron, steel, cop per and other American products to which the principle now being established could be applied with equal justice. "Russia would also be perfectly justi fied -in applying this new procedure not only against the United States, but al3o against Western Europe, inasmuch as this singular idea of the concealment of secret premiums originated in no way with the United States. It was first pro claimed by Europe at teß rhussels con ference in IS9B, and it is only such an idea, for which Europe is responsible, that Russia has to thank for an iniqui tous act on the part of the friendly United States. "It must, above all, be not .forgotten, that this is a slippery path and that, it it is pursued further, we too shall in evitably proceed without oven awaiting the expiration of commercial treaties to similar measures, not only with regard to America, but also with regard to Europe in the case of such products as art: controlled by syndicates or other or ganizations and sold cheaper abroad than at home. "To such incredible consequences ona comes even at first glance when one starts upon the solution of international questions from unsound principles, ques tions which require abuve all the mosr. übsolute justice and consideration ot mutual interests, if an understanding be tween parties is to be maintained." Those articles, which appear in the of ficial organs of the ministry of finance, undoubtedly represent the views of the Russian government in the application nt the theory of concealed export premiums to trust made products. Both papers sig nificantly hold Western Europe responsi ble for the theory, thus/tacitly admitting that the United States acted under pres- Siire. They threaten trust made European and American products, which are sold cheaper abroad than at home with compensatory duties. They ignore as irrelevant, the distinction between legislative and voluntary regulation of industries. The announcement of this doctrine opens up a wide field of speculation, ap parently presaging a transformation of the discriminating duties against Ameri ca into a general increase of duties on all articles which enter largely into the world's commerce and are the objects oL the keenest competition. Russian industries would certainly wel come anj excuse to increase the present high protection. During the existing: Stagnation they have bitterly complained whenever a foreign concern has secured a government order and they are con tinually demanding favors of every kind, railway rates and the like against for-" eigners. Possibly, however, the inspired organs merely desire to illustrate In a drastic way the dangers from the at tempts of one state to interfere indirect ly with the Internal affairs of another. SUICIDES PUT OFF. CHINESE PUNISHMENTS DELAYED ISTU- TUESDAY. PKKIN, Feb. 24.—Fu1l texts of the im perial edict regarding punishments were sent last evening to the ministers cf the powers, identical with the official report of the contents of the edict cabled to t!ie Associated Press. The ministers say there is a little contusion with reference to strangulation and suicide, but that this is not important. Li Hung Chang received a bulletin an nouncing the sentences which could be test carried into effect by the board oi' punishment, ancl he requested the Jap. a'lese to deliver Ying Nien and Chao Shu Chiao in order that the sentences in their cases might be executed today In conformity with the edict but the Jap anese considered the notice too short and have delayed the enforcement of the pen alties until Tuesday in order that the ministers of the powers might send rep resentatives as they desire. It is also intended to guard the men at the place of execution so as to pre vent suicide or escape. When official confirmation, duly certi fied by high officers of state, of the sen i tences oC death upon the others shall I have been received and these two have Ibeen executed, China will have prac tically complied v^ith the terms demand ed by the powers, as she has already agreed to issue edictr, prepared by the ministers of the powers for the cessa tion of examinations and regarding the responsibilities of viceroys and gov ernors. TO CARRY REGRETS. Prince Chun, the emperor's brother, ■will soon go to Berlin to express China's regrets for the murder of Baron yon Ketteler. He says China has now accept ed to the uttermost and also performed everything required by the powers, ex cept the payment of the indemnities, the amount of which has not been decided. He thinks arrangements should be made for the evacuation of Pekin in order to enable the court to return. He says he believes* no nation in history ever com plied with a series of terms more quick ly and more completely. No official announcement has been made of the abandonment of the pro posed expedition into the interior, but it Is not likely that any further prepara tions will be made. The foreign envoys feel that the proposal was a master stroke and caused the settlement of what might have been a protracted affair. The ministers of the powers regard the punishment* edict as satisfactory. Chit) Siu, former grand secretary and Hsu Cheng Tv, son of the notorious Hsu Tung, will be publicly executed in Pekin today. An edict has been promulgated sus pending examinations at all points which were the scenes of outrages upon foreign ers. Returned Senorita t l»no. MADRID, Feb. 24.—Senorita.

Austrian Reich* rath Drifting To- wards Another Dlssolut lon. VIENNA, Feb. 24.—1t is feared that matters in the Austrian reichsrath are drifting toward another dissolution and the filling of all important positions by military officers. Yesterday Herren Schoenrer and "Wolf interpellated the government on matters connected with the confessional. The chamber went into secret session, and then amid a storm of clerical pro tests copious extracts from the confes sional rules and the questions of St. Al phoHious, of Liguri, were read out. These extracts had been contained in the inter pellation by Herr Schoenrer, his object being to get them placed upon the min utes of the house, and thus to brand the Catholics with immorality. But the president of the reichsrath refused to allow the interpellation to be read except in secret session. The Clericals loaded the Schoenrer party with opprobrious epithets and threatened them with bodily chas tisement. Fists were clenched and mem bers hustled, the situation bordering on a free fight. The Pan-Germans 'kept shouting: "Away with Rome." Finally Seherrer got a hearing and assured the house that the translations of the book were inaccurate, and further that it never got into the hands of young peo ple. This statement qieted the chamber, which voted to erase the interpellation from the minutes. ABLE TO GO OUT. Dowager Empress Given a Rifle in a Hand Sleigh.

A well-known member of congress front a state close to the District of Colum bia recently had an experience which lie does not care to repeat. He is being treated with electricity for stomach trou- Die, and twice a week he swallows a steel button with a thin wire attached and connected with an electric battery The opposite pole of the battery is then placed on the outside of his' stomach and the circuit thus formed. Several days ago the congressman was taking his treatment and the doctor was ner y«us- After making the connection with the battery he pulled out the plug about lour notches too far. A muffled shriek of surprise burst from' the representative find h ? ade a wild plunge forward, following him came the battery and the doctor. The member could not release himself from the battery, and in some 3fJ. A he 'locto, 1' had made connection with it and could not let pro. So around the room they went, with the battery banging against the furniture and main taining a steady and infernal buzzing. After a few minutes of this exercise the physician managed to make hi« patient understand that he must keep still long enough for the doctor to force In the Plug with his foot. This was done and the agony was over. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., Feb. 24.-T.7nion car renters of this city have gained a vic tory ta their demands from tV'contract ors, the latter acceding to the men.
