The "reporter asked for the name? and
eddres.-ses of some of the pupils so that
he might communicate with them person
ally. Several hundred were offered, from
which the reporter selected eighty-four.
The replies received were more than suf
ficient to convince the most skeptical in
regard to the wonderful benefits to be
derived from this mighty power. There
were absolutely no failures. All had
learned to make practical use of the
science. The following extracts are
taken at random from the letters, for
the benefit of readers:
J. H. Schneller, 1412 Avon St., La
Orosse, Wis., writes: "Hypnotism truly
r. veals the secrets of life and the mys
teries of nature My own father could
not have convinced me of Its wonder
ful power if I had not actually tested
ii for myself. I consider a knowledge of
it invaluable for those who wish to get
the most out of life; to those who wish
to achieve success to the full measure
of their possibilities."
Mrs. Kffie M. Watson, Martinsville. Ind.,
wiites: "Hypnotism opens the road to
health, happiness and prosperity. It
Should be studied by everyone. I would
siot part with my knowledge of it for any
amount. The instructions have developed
within me a force of character, an abil
ity to influence and control people that
1 did not dream I could acquire."
J. W. Clingrer, M. D., Springfield, Ohio,
"writes: "I have used the methods of
hypnotism taught by the American Col
lego of Sciences In two cases of difficult
surgical operations with perfect success.
It is a complete anaesthetic, and prefera
ble to chloroform or ether. I acquired a
practical knowledge of hypnotism in less
than three days. The book is grand."
Rev. T. W. Butler, Ph. D.. Id**o City,
Idaho, writes: "T have cured a number
of chronic cases of rheumatism, dyspepsia

ALEXANDRIA. Minn., April s.—Sheriff
Lundgren and Deputy Sheriff HaJl went
to the scene of the Johnson murder In
the town of Le Grande yesterday. The
boy Larson had told the sheriff where he
had thrown the revolver the day of the
shooting, while on his way to Alexandria,
and the gun was found just as he said.
He had also told where he had thrown
the pocketbook taken from the dead man,
but it could not be found, although
searched for. The object of the trip yes
terday was to find this pocketbook, and.
it waa discovered about thirty-five feet
from where he said it fell, and where it
had evidently been carried by the squir
rels. The leather was almost eaten away,
but the steel clasps wt-re left. The boy
said it was just such S, book as he took
from the old man.
The boy had also said that after the
shooting he ran acrosss the field in a
diagonal direction to the road. The
tracks were founa just as he said, and
as if made by a man running and they
were just such as would have been made
by the shoes worn by Larson.
The boy's story has been borne out in
about all dietajls by good circumstantial
evidence. Larson does not seem to
know how to lie and to be either heart
less or utterly lacking in the knowledge
of right and wrong.

retained by him for a few day 3 and then
returned in the hope of receiving a iarger
sum. The me-asure was enacted and the
member, after much delay, was finally
compelled to accept $5,000 in full for his
vote on the franchise bill.
"In many other cases it was shown
that members of the assembly who, prior
to their election, were wholly without
means, upon induction into office were
soon in affluent circumstances and inde
pendent positions financially, and this,
too, notwithstanding the fact that the
salary of such are only $25 a month.
"Convincing documentary evidence was
unearthed proving that the sum of $145,000
was placed in escrow in a bank in this
city to be paid to the members of the
municipal council of St. Louis upon The
passage of a valuable franchise ordi
nance. This ordinance failed, and a sec
ond bill was introduced, upon the passage
of which the sum of about $250,000 was
distributed amcng those members. After
the passage of the ordinance the fran
chise was sold for $1,250,000. The city
realized nothing whatever for this fran
chise. In these matters the statute of
limitation was a bar to the finding of in
dictments against nearly all of the guilty
"The more recent attempt of a street
railway company to secure a franchise
has been conspicuously brought to public
notice through proceedings in the criminal
courts. In this case an agreement was
made between the legislative agent of the
company and the representatives of the
combines in both branches of the mu
nicipal assembly by the terms of which
$75,000 was to be paid to certain members
of the house of delegates and 560,000 to
certain members of the council in con
sideration of such members voting for the
proposed measure. The first named
amount was deposited in cash In a safe
deposit box in a trust company and the
$00,000 was likewise deposited in another
trust company.
"Two keys to each box were issued, the
one being held by the legislative agent ot
the company, the other by the corrupt
agent of the members of the municipal
assembly. Through the action of the
courts the passage of the ordinance was
Legislators Should Be Salaried.
"The t135,000,000 corruption fund was de
mands* by the legislators under the claim
that they had done their duty, all they
had agreed to do, but the company re
fused to honor their claim. The investiga
tion of this has led to a number of in
dictments connected with the attempted
purchase of this franchise, under one of
which the defendant has, after a fair trial,
been convicted and sentenced to three
years in the penitentiary, and another
has become a fugitive from justice, thus
confessing his guilt in the nefarious trans
"This evidence shows us that there are
in this city men of seeming great re
spectability, directors in large corpora
tions, and prominent in business and so
cial circles, who have not hesitated to put
up money for the purpose of bribing
through the assembly measures in which
they were interested. When called before
our body some have added to the offense
of bribery the crime of perjury, and only
escaped the ignominy attaching to their
infamous conduct by reason of the fact
that evidence, though satisfying our mind,
would not be admissible in the trial
"While legal evidence may be lacking to
bring upon them the penalty for their
acts, yet they are morally convicted and
damned by their connection with such de
bauchery. Some of these are as guilty as
those against whom indictments have
been returned, the only difference being
that they have been more successful in
covering their tracks."
No names are mentioned in connection
with these charges of fraud. As a rem
edy for the present conditions in the mu
nicipal assembly, the grand jury suggests
that the method of selecting members of
the house of delegates should be, changed
so that they may b« chosen by the city
at large. The payment of liberal salaries
to these officials is advocated in order
that "honest men can afford to serve the
city in the capacity of legislators."

Precedents have been found on ail sides,
first, that the speaker may refuse to en

that he may refer the whole matter to

The Bill in the Senate.
Opposition to the Cuban reciprocity bill
in the senate ia beginning to show its
hand. Senator Platt, of Connecticut,
chairman of the committee on relations
with Cuba, has received two formal no
tices from his colleagues. One, from
Democratic senators, is that they will
fight reciprocity at every stage and have
formed a compact for that purpose. Tha
other comes rrom several leading Repub
lican members who will offer an amend
ment to the bill providing that there shall
be no reciprocity until Cuba makes a
treaty with the United States embody
ing the tex- of the Platt amendment.
Both notices mark the beginning of the
fight which will be made in the senate
against the Cuban bill. The l-latt amend
ment, which outlined the relations which
should exist between the United States
and Cuba, was primarily framed with th«
purpose of preventing Cuba from making
demands upon this government under a
threat to violate the Monroe doctrine by
entering into relations with Germany or
some other European power.
The Cuban congress finally adopted the
Platt amendment and incorporated it into
the Cuban constitution. The amendment
also provided, however, that it should be
made the basis of a treaty with the Unit
ed States as soon as Cuba enjoyed inde
pendent government.
How the Cubans Stand.
Senator Platt was informed that unless
this treaty was formulated before reci
procity was granted there would be seri
ous doubt as to its negotiations. He was
told that the Cubans were not to be
trusted, and their attempt to nullify th«
plain meaning of the Platt amendment
was quoted to him as evidence of their
want of good faith. He was also notified
that prominent Republicans, who shared
in the suspicion of Cuban honesty, would
oppose the reciprocity measure to the last
ditch unless the Platt amendment was
protected, and that he might prepare to
face a fight In his own party unless action
along this line was accepted by Wnx
Senator Platt agreed to give this phase
of the case his honest consideration, al
though he suggested that if reciprocity
was not to be enjoyed by Cuba until the
treaty had been signed and ratified, It
would postpone until next winter the pro
posed relief for the island.
"And besides," he Is quoted as saying^
"if reciprocity becomes dependent upon
the ratification of the treaty with Cuba
the necessary two-thirds vote will nevei
be obtained."
The attitude •of Democratic senators is
something of a surprise. In the house
th« Democrats have given their support
to the Republican proposition, although
some of them, like Representative Mc-
Clellan, assert that a, 20 per cent reduc
tion of tariff is not enough.
It is understood that in the senate the
Democrats will favor free trade with Cuba
and will also take the ground that the
Island ought to be annexed. They argue
that the annexation of Cuba has been
Democratic doctrine since the days of
Jefferson, and that it would be wiser per-
Manentlx to annex the island than to be
continually dispensing relief to the In

Senator Fairbanks Speaka at Some
Length, Urging Its Pnnsage.
"WASHINGTON, April 6.—During the
debate on the Chinese exclusion bill Mr.
Fairbanks maintained that the United
States had an absolute light to enact
such laws as would safeguard our citi
zenship against contaminating influences
from any quarter of the globe. Indeed,
it was a plain and imperative duty of
congress to preserve the purity of the
currents which vitally affect the stand
ard of our citizenship. To do this con
gress had enacted laws prohibiting the
admission to this country of many
classes of persons, and in enacting these
laws congress simply was exercising the
law of sovereignty.
"The pending (bill," said he, "la not a

known policy of the government. A

vantage of capital nor labor. Our course
Is not dictated by any ill will toward the

constitute the 80,000,000 of American citi

After discussing our treaty with Chi
na, showing that the proposed legisla
tion was not in contravention of it, and
that Chinese exclusion practically had
been acquiesced In by China, Mr. Fair
banks concluded as follows:
"That the congress has the moat plen
ary power to enact into law the bill
before us there can 'be no doubt, for
the power to exclude undesirable immi
grants is an inherent attribute of na
tional sovereignty."
