Affidavit of Complaint Because
His Life Was Threatened.
The first day for the defense in the
celebrated Gardntr bribery case was not
lacking in climaxes. In the nrst place
the defense placed on the stand nearly all
of their star witnesses; in the second
place one of their witnesss was fined $5
in open court by Judge Harrison for dis
cbodience of orders given him by the
court bailiff; In the third plact: Assistant

Mayor Ames could not tell for what
«c he had appointed Gardner spe

d his commission two months after
bad appointed him. There is no
i in the office, however, to show
ti ;it such a revocation was ever entered
in the books at headquarters. The prin
cipal duties which Gardner performed, ac
cording to the mayor, was the carrying
of messages between the mayor's medi
cal office and the chief of police, and at
rime he did order Gardner to sit
Mayor 111 at Ea.se.
The mayor was evidently ill at ease \
■while he was on the stand, and answered j
all the questions put to him by the as- |
sistant county attorney in a somewhat i
labored manner. There were many point
ed questions put to him tending to show
his knowledge, if any, of the rec-lv
ing of bribes and guaranteeing im
munity to the crooks. All these, as a
matter of course, were flatly and forcibly
After Attorney Smith was through with
ci -examination of the mayor. Robert
.Corman was called for the purpose of
telling a conversation he had with Ed
wards while they were both inmates of
the county jail. The language which Ed
wards used was in substance as follows:
"I've been thrown down: it's a job.
Loon?is, my attorney, threw me down,
and I have $5,000 or $6,000 which I will use
to throw them down." Gorman swore
positively that Edwards said the above
in a loud voice twelve times.

penitentiary at Stillwater, one for bur
glary and one for grand larceny, and has
also served minor sentences in the county 1
jail and workhouse: %
Police Inspector Charles Nelson was
placed on the stand to testify to Edwards'
reputation for truth and veracity, he said
"Norm" King told him he was an "all

knew of Edwards.
Supt. Fred. W. Ames was then called.
He denied having any knowledge of "big
mitt" games beifg in operation, or that
he had received or accepted any bribes,
■and that the first time he met Edwards
was when Officer - Zalusky brought him
into headquarters after he had beat a
man out of $20 in the joint on Sixth
street. He claims -that at that time he
told Edwards to leave town, as he would
not stand for his playing cards for a
living in the city, as it was contrary to
He admitted that Ed Connor tried to
interview him one Sunday afternoon in
Thompson's drug store regarding the op
erations of "skin" games in the city. His
reason for evading the interview was
that papers always got his language
twisted, and further that he did not care
to talk with Connor, or to take any sug
gestions fiom him as rega**s to the best
methods of running the police department.

Per Capita Tax Reduced and Same
Grand Aerie Offices Abolished.
Yesterday was a busy day for the Fra
ternal Order of Eagles. The committee
who had in charge the revision of the
constitution presented its report, and it
was acted upon as a whole and adopted.
Under the present constitution the state
deputies are supreme in their territory,
under the old constitution they were un
der the control of the general officers.
The office of chaplain and outside guar
dian of the grand aerie were abolished
by the new code. The per capita tax was
also reduced from $1 to 50 cents.
The resolution which provided that no
grand worthy president should succeed
himself in office was defeated. There
was a friendly and spirited debate on this
question, but those who were opposed to
it won out, and the friends of the meas
ure, who, on the preceding day, claimed
that the vote on the resolution would in
a measure decide the choice for the
presidency for the ensuing year, now
claim that many supporters of candi
dates, other than Del Gary Smith, vote*
against the resolution, and that their
candidates are just as strong now as they
were before the resolution was defeated
The supporters of Dr. Schwatka * the
Baltimore candidate, are .Jl confident of

DOI'GHERTY LOOPS LOOP,
Darin*? Cyclist Accomplishes What
Others Were Hurt in Attempting.
The loop has been looped! and the dar
ing feat has been achieved by a Minne
apolis cyclist. Josiah Dougherty is his
name; he lives at 33 North Sixteenth
street.' -; ... ■ n Va -
Last night just as the whistles: "were
blowing at 6 o'clock he walked backwards
slowly up the incline which runs to the
loop at an angle of 34 degrees, examining
every inch of the pathway as he went.
He had spent the day planning how he
should ride. He had seen John Larson,
the first local rider, fall from the top of
the loop in the morning, and, as if fired
for a catapult shoot clear beyond the
r.et that had been stretched to catch
him, smashing an electric light in his
way and falling: heavily to the ground.
This did not deter him one whit, it
only made him more cautious. He had
watched carefully every detail of Lar
son's ride; he saw that the "plugger"
came down the incline bending over his
handle bars as if sprinting in a race, so
he took an erect position, with his saddle
as far back as it would go, almost stand
in up. ■ ...
Harry Cooper, the cycle dazzle - river,
who started him was quivering witii
"Keep cool," said Dougherty, 'and send
me off straight."
Below him about fifty spectators stood
silent, almost breathless with anxiety.
There was a pause, and then Dougherty
came down the exact center of the black
line as straight as an arrow.
When he struck the curve on the as
cent he described the circle of the loop
in a flash and before it could be realized
almost the danger to him was over. Then
came a fall, and Dougherty, instead of
shooting forward on the runway which
had been prepared to allow him to check
his speed, fell from his wheel. He was j
on his feet before anybody could reach
him. exclaiming, 'I wonder what made
the wheel slip that way."
IAJi.S TO "LOOP THE LOOP. '
Johu Larson Had Narrow MMcajic at
Elks' Fair Yesterday.
John Larsen, well known in the city, at
tempted to "loop the loop" at the -bJlits*
fair yesterday forenoon, and his lirst at
tempt was a failure. Ha came down th-2
incline at a terrific rate of speed, but in
stead of ' the wheel following the black
mark Which would lead him to the apex
of the loop and around in safety, it ran
off the loop entirely about half way up.
The. wheel and rider /went straight into
( the" air for about ten feet and landed
with consierable- force about fifty feet
Everyone who witnessed the perform
ance was of the opinion that I.arsen
would surely be killed, and much to their
surprise he picked himself up, and ap
parently none the worse from his first
trial of the feat that is at the present
time attracting world-wide attention.
The wheel was badly damaged, but Lar
sen escaped with but a slight cut on
his hand. He at once declared 'that he
was ready to try it again.

Stanislaw I<zilzek, a Polish boy fight
years of age, residing with his parents

into the river near his home lasc Tues

the matter was immediately reported to

where the accident occurred is reported
to have said to the parents: "Oh, go and

all the satisfaction they got.

Bill Is Resolution as to
, Gen. Wood's Salary Tabled—Sen
ator liauuu Finishes His Canal
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 6.—Gen
eral debate on the anti-anarchy bill
closed in the house today. The incident
of the day was a speech by Mr. Richard
son, an Alabama Democrat, condemning
the president in severe terms for the ref
erence, in his Memorial day oration at
Arlington, to the epithets applied to Lin
coln and Grant in the Civil war, and for
bis allusions to lynchings. He declared
that the president's remarks violated the
proprieties of the occasion.
Mr. Littlefielci made a legal argument
of an hour and a half in closing the de
bate on the anarchy bill. The section of
the senate bill providing a bodyguard for
the president was stricken from the sen
ate bill as a precaution in case the house
substitute failed. An effort was made
to strike from the first section of the sub
stitute the words limiting the crime of
killing the president to the president in
his official capacity, but the motion was
lost—63 to 89.
Gen. Wood's Compensation,
Mr. Hull (Iowa), chairman of the com
mittee on military affairs, reported back
the resolution requesting information as
to salary or other compensation paid to
Gen. Leonard Wood during the occupa
tion of Cuba. The committee recommend
ed that it lie on the tabie.
Mr. Richardson, the minority leader,
asked if the resolution was not debata
ble. When the speaker responded in the
negative, Mr. Bartlett (Ga.) formally
made the point of order that, being a
resolution of inquiry, end not having
been reported to the house within a week
after its introduction, it became privi
leged and was debatable. The speaker
overruled the point of order.
On a rising vote there were 77 votes for
Mr. Hull's motion and 55 against it. the
division being on party lines, with the ex
ception that Mr. Grosvenor (Omao) voted
with the Democrats. Mr. Hay (Va.) de
manded the ayes and nays, and the roll
was caHed. The resolution was laid upon
the table—loo to 72, a strict party vvte

an colleagues on the motion.
Hanna Finishes for Panama.
The senate resumed consideration of the
isthmian canal bill, Mr. Hanna (Ohio)
continuing his argument in support of
the Panama canal. The Ohio senator de
clared that no political considerations
were involved in the canal problem. He
presented the opinions of eighty-three
shippers and pilots in favor of the Pana
ma route as against the Nicaragua route,
for many reasons, which they cited.
He urged that the construction of the
Nicaragua canal was beset with un
known difficulties, while the construction
of the Panama canal was "an open
book. ' He laid particular stress on the
danger to the Nicaragua route from vol
canoes, and urged that it was not good
business policy to ignore those dangers
in a project involving an expenditure of
$200,000,000. Mr. Hanna appealed to the
senate to consider the matter as a busi
ness proposition, and with some feeling
repudiated the suggestion that th;se fa
voring the Panama route were not in fa
vor of any canal.
The senate passed the bill to pay $1,012
to Frank C. Darling, of Minnesota, for
damages done by the Sioux Indians.

<£ove and a Man.
By EDGAR WELTON COOLEY.
Copyright, 1902, by Daily Story Pub. Co. j
The glow of the electric light fell soft
ly upon the rich tapestries, the elegant
furnishings and the rare paintings, and
lingered amid the blonde hair of a young
man, who, in slippers and smoking
Jacket, was reclining in a Morris chair
before a grate, reading a paper.
The man was scarcely more than a
y< uth and his smooth-shaven face was
free from lines of trouble or of care. But
I in his quiet eyes a certain sadness slum
bered, as though real happiness, real con
tentment, were not his.
Presently a woman, robed in an evening
gewn of pale blue satin, pushed aside
the portieres and, seeing him, paused,
smiling. Her hair fell over her shoul
dtrs like a golden cataract tumbling into
a blue sea, and her eyes were like the
skies of June—peacefully blue and tender.
Jewels sparkled at. her throat and on her
linger*, and a pink flush brightened her
cheeks, like the. earth is brightened by
the first pink rose the sun holds up
through the dewey mist of dawn.
The young man did not move; he did
■ not glance up from bis paper, although
the woman coughed slightly, very slight
ly, on-ce or twice.
Finally she walked smilingly across the
room and, pausing behind his chair, rest
ed her arms upon his shoulders and pet
ted his cheeks. He gianced up into her
face and her smile doepeaod, showing a
shadowy dimple in her cheek.
"Hello, Agnes," he said, simply, turn
ing his eyes back to his paper.
The woman removed her arms from his
shoulders and stood quite still and erect,
a thumb and finger toying with a lock
of his hair and wisstfulness creeping into
"I—l did not know you had come, Ray
mond," she faltered.
"I have been here ten minutes," he
returned. "I did not think it necessary
to sound a trurr.fpet when I arrived."
The color left the woman's face and her
lips trembled, but she did not reply.
After awhile she walked to a window
and gazed out at the stars, while the
man turned his paper over and continued
Once or twice the woman turned tier
head and glanced at the man, but she
did not speak and he did not look up.
Then she pushed a footstool to the side
of his chair and sat down upon it, let
ting her elbow reet upon his Knee and
gazed at tne coals in the grate.
"Please put down your paper, dear,"
she said. "I want to talk to you."
The paper dropped from the man's
fingers and for a moment he gazed In
silence at the woman's hair that glowed
like a golden crown in th« bright glare
of the electric light. Just the suggestion
of a frown stole across hia face and he
olui the woman did not take her eyea
from the fire; she dixi not speak, and the
man took a cigar from his pocket and,
lighting it, threw the burning match Into
"Well?" he asked. Impatiently.
"Raym/ond," she replied, very slowly,
"did you realise that tomorrow is the
anniversary of our wedding? We have
bf-en married three years tomorrow, Ray
Again a sigh escaped the man. It was
a very soft sigh, but the woman heard
it and glanced quickly, aearchingly into
his face. He did not return her glance,
but gazed silently itno the fire.
Badly she turned her face again towards
the glowing coals In the grate and sat in
silence for a long time.
"Well," repeated the man, finally,
"what of it, Agnes?"
"Raymond," she said, suddenly, lean
ing forward-and staring intently Into the
fire, "yo-u do not—you do not loye me any
more, do you?" There was a sob and
the man moved uneasily,
"I love you as much as I ever did,"
he replied, resignedly.
"As much as ever you did? Then
then, you never loved me, Raymond."
The other hesitated, chewing stubborn
ly at the end of his cigar. Then he re
plied, speaking softly, but deliberately:
"No, Agnes, I never truly loved you."
A sudden sob escaped the woman in
spite of her efforts to control herself, and i
the man's face darkened. But when the
woman spoke her voice was cairn and
"Why, then, did you marry me, Ray
"You know why I married you," he re
plied. "You know the parents of both
of us were anxious that we should wed.
Father never gave me a moment's peace I
until I agreed. He even threatened to j
disinherit me if I refused. And so—and j
so—oh, well, 1 was young and—l d dn't
"Then it was my money and not me,
you married, "Raymond?"
"; "Well. yes, I suppose so," he replied,
blowing a; cloud of j sm.te Into the . air.
"Yes. I ;■; suppose it was on account of
your money that tfi"e folks wanted me to
marry you. But I didn't -«are for your
money, Agnes; you know I didn't. I
haven't touched a cent of it."
He leaned forward and flicked th- Uft
from his cigar into the flames, while tbe
woman sat perfectly still, watching the
"While I didn't care particularly for
you," he continued patronizingly, "there
was no one else I loved, and so I didn't
I much care. Having a fortune of my own,
I thought that perhaps it was proper that
I should marry a woman of means. The
folks wanted it, the world expected it,
"I see," said the woman, quietly.
The man bent forward and rested his'
hand upon the gold of the woman's hair.
"I have tried to be a good husband to
you, Agnes," he said. "1 have endeavor
ed to provide you all the luxuries to
which you have been accustomed. I have
never denied you anything I thought
would add to your happir
The woman looked u;> suddenly. Her
eyes were intensely bright. A bright red
spot glared on r-ach cheek.
"Raymond." .she said, "y. v have lavish
ed your wealth upon me, but you have
denied me everything."
"I't'nied you everything?" he cried al
"Yes, you have denied me that wh'ch
is everything to a wife—Urn love of her
husband. That is everything, Raymond."
She arose slowly and crossed the room.
Under the portieres she pan* d
glanced back at the .man sitting with his
chin resting In his hand and gazing at
the dying embers on the hearth.
"I—l—uo not blame you, dear," sh'
said with a so!>. "Perhaps— perhaps- I
would not—mind, if —if—l laved you 1

When her husband entered, Agn. j g-ive

His face was ashen; Ms eyes were doll
