The family of the Countess has for generations been near the throne of.
Spain, and one of her family (Count Louis do Ovies)signed with John Quincy
Adams when Florida was ceded to the United States by treaty in 1819.
It will thus be seen that a word from a lady such as is the Countess
Blnnca must carry great weight. Under date of January 11,1901, her lady
ship wrote Messrs. Warner's Safe Cure Co. from 406 Pennsylvania Avenue,
Fittsburg, Pa., as follows: " The past summer while completing manuscript
for a book, being somewhat overworked, coupled with the intense heat, my
nervous system became seriously affected, causing restless nights and loss
of appetite. At this critical juncture four bottles of Warner's Safe Cure,
taken conscientiously, completely restored me to health, and I feel it due
you to thus express gratification and thanks.

the defendant threw her against a glass

flesh of her hand to the bone and other

by choking her Into insensibility. On the

complaint, the husband admits the alle

any excuses.

At noon yesterday Michael Conroy and

walked into central police station and in
formed Chief O'Connor that they were

with John J. Barry and J. T. O'Brien at

Conroy, the "short man," has been em
ployed as a mail carrier for almost seven
teen years. He is about forty-nve years
old and lives with his wife and child at
1012 Margaret street.
Bailey, the "tall man," is unmarried.
For a number of years he has been in
the plumbing business at 148 East Fourth
street, and has lived with his parents at
691 East Fifth street. He is thirty-eight
years old.
Both men are favorably known, and
their confession and arrest came as a
great surprise to all who knew them-
They were taken to police court late in
the afternoon and arraigned on a charge
of homicide. Both men pleaded not
guilty, and the case was continued until
March 29 for preliminary hearing. Short
ly after they were taken before Judge
Kelly in the district court, anl, through
their attorney, Thomas O'Brien, they
asked that bail be fixed. After hearing the
charges against the men read. Judge

Sunday Evening.

Conroy looked haggard and worried. Jtte
has suffered much since the unfortunate
tragedy of Sunday night. To the Globe
he told the following story:
"Since I learned of poor Barry's death,
I have almost gone mad. I never dreamed
that the quarrel would end so fatally. All
that I ever had and all that I would be
able to earn in the rest of my life I would
gladly give if the events of last Sunday
could be blotted out. I could stand
secrecy no longer, and was forced to tell
all that I knew about the fight. I wish
now that I had done so sooner. It was
not the consequences I feared, but the
notoriety. I remember the particulars of
the fight perfectly.
"My wife was visiting a family on Mar
tin street. Sunday, and in the evening
with Bailey, I went to call for her. At
about 7:30 o'clock we were walking up
Wabasha street and passed two young
men standing at the corner of Summit
avenue. One of them asked us for a
match. We did not answer but passed
on. We had not gone very far when one
of them exclaimed: "You Irish, you
needn't be stuck on yourselves because
you were in the parade today." The re
mark was accompanied by a profa'he
epithet. Both Bailey and I turned back
and when we reached them, I said:
'You fellows are no gentlemen to make
a remark like that.' The words were
scarcely out of my mouth when Barry
struck me and knocked me into the
street. I was stunned but he was on
top of me at once and we started fight
ing. Several times Bailey interceded and
told Barry that he had better stop, but
he refused. Once when we had stopped
for a moment I picked up our hats and
gave him his, remarking that I hoped
that he had had enough. 'You cant
give me enough,' he retorted and start
ed fighting again. I did not kick him. It
would have been impossible because we
clinched all the time we were fighting.
Neither did we strike a street car. Bar
ry may have fallen against the cr.rb
stone. Eailey did not strike, kick or hold
Barry. When he saw that he could not
stop the fight he held the crowd back
to see that I got fair play.
"When the fight was finally over,
Bailey and I went to a saloon on Martin
street, where I cleaned up as much as
possible. We then called for my wife
and went home. The next day I learned
of Barry's death."
Bniley tells the same story as Conroy,
When asked if he threatened to pull a
gun he said that he had never carried
The statement in yesterday morning's
Globe that Barry assisted in singing
mass at St. Mary's church last Sunday
morning was incorrect. Inquiries set on
foot by Father Gibbons and by him re
ported to the Globe establishes the
fact that Barry was not connected with
St. Mary's choir.

Beaten Out by a Narrow Margin In
Newspaper Contest, Her Friends
Provide Coarse and Cash
A rare bit of fortune, what some would
term "good luck," has fallen to the lot
of Miss Ada Paterson, for some time a
waitress at the Windsor hotel. It is of
such a character as to enable the young
lady to abandon her present occupation,
laudable, but perhaps not quite as prom
isingl nor desirable as that in which, by
means of her unexpected good fortune,
she may within a short time engage. The
incident is worthy of mention, since it is
one of a kind that does not occur every
day, and the ultimate results of whlen
may amount to more even than its pro
moters, in their impromptu benevolence,
Miss Paterson had been, with many
others, striving to attain a certain re
ward offered by a local paper. It was trie
prize in an ordinary contest, such as
have become quite common with news
papers, and the lucky winner was to be
sent for an entire term ,to one of the
shorthand schools of the city. Miss Pater
son's name was used by her friends in
the contest, and she was well up in the
race, at one time ranking second. The
results showed, when the contest was
closed, that the young lady stood third.
Her remarkable race surprised not only
herself, for she least expected to be a
formidable contestant, but her friends,
who were exerting their Influence In her
behalf. It might easily have been sus
pected that a young lady of no more
pretentious life than Miss Paterson would
receive fewer votes, but her popularity
was clearly 'demonstrated, and stle has
been made the recipient of earnest con
gratulations from her many friends.
Last evening a number of the members
of the legislature, who board at the
Windsor, requested that Miss -Paterson be
the attendant at their tables. The young
lady "did" the assignment, but was tilled
with curiosity at the request. After the
dinner she was called to the table, and

KeprotlatloiiH for a Filtering: Plant
Come to a Standstill.
All negotiations for a filtration plant in
the waterworks system have come to a
standstill as a result of a ruling by City
Attorney Healy, at a conference with O.
H. Jewell, of the Jewell Filter company.
The Jewell company had a proposition
to offer, in accordance with which it
would install a nitration plant at the
reservoir, having a capacity of 30,000,000
gallons a day, tor about $185,000. Fifty
thousand dollars of this sum was to be
paid down at the completion of the plant
and $50,000 a j-ear until the whole was
paid, the company accepting certificates
of indebtedness in lieu of cash at the
present time.
City Attorney Heaiy declared that in
accordance with the ruling of the su
preme court in the case between the
Brush Electric Light company and the
city of Minneapolis, it is impossible for
the city to enter into a contract unless
the money is in sight with which to cover
the liability incurred. After Mr. Healy
had announced his ruling it was decided
that nothing further could be done in
the matter.
Commercial Clnb Practically Aban.
dons Burlington Proposition.
The committee of the Commercial club
which has before it the proposition for
the entrance of the Burlington, Cedar
Rapids & Northern railroad in a direct
line from the Southern part of the state,
admit that it is almcst certain that the
road has decided to come in hrough St.
Paul, and that it has gone too far with
its plans to be prevailed upon to change
them. It is expected that the committee
will report that the subject was not
brought to its attention until it was too
late to do any good.
Mayor Thinks Present Police Force
Too Small.
Mayor Ames believes that tht* city of
Minneapolis needs a much larger police
force than it has at the present, and ho
has asked the members of the committee
on police and on ways and means to
meet with him Friday morning to dis
cuss the matter. The mayor will call at
tention to the fact that the city has
grown largely since the charter was pass
ed and states that, in his opinion, there
ought to be SOO instead of 225 officers in
this city.
Anderson's Long Trip.
It took John Anderson, a farmer re
siding near Anoka, thirty-one hours to
come from his home to Minneapolis dur
ing the snow storm. He left Anoka at 8
o'clock Toesdfty morning and arrived in
Minneapolis at 3 o'clock yesterday after
iioon. Anderson was then half starved,
for during the trying trip all he had to
r-Xist on was snow. With this he man
aged to quench his thirst. The hofs.es
tared better, as they had managed to
make a meal off an old mattress which
was found in an empty horse.

secures possession of the property be
tween First street and the rivor and be
