Trouble Dates Back to Strike in Great
Northern Shops—Man Under Arrest
Applies for a Warrant Charging His
Supposed Victim With Assault —In-
quest Will Be Held.
While Patrick J. O'Keefe was at the
court house yesterday morning ap
plying for a warrant to arrest Joseph
W. Jacques, charging him with as
sault, the accused man was lying on a
bed at his home slowing dying from
injuries received during a street fight,
near the Jackson street bridge early
in the day. The application for the
isjßßir f »' *
sfrar Z ' *■ *^
warrant was received, but before it
was issued Jacques had expired.
Three hours after his death O'Keefe
was arrested at his home, No. 91 South
Robert street. He is charg-ed with
manslaughter in the first degree.
How the fight started no one seems
to know. Friends of Jacques claim that
O'Keefe was the aggressor, but, ac
cording to his story Jacques brought
on the trouble.
The quarrel dates back to the ma
chinists' strike at the Great Northern
shops early in the summer. Jaccues is
a machinist, and O'Keefe was em
ployed as a special policeman. He was
retained by the company after the
stake was settled, and since then
there has been bad blood between the
watchman and the men.
About a week ago Jacques fell to
sleep while at work. He was a mem
ber of the night shift, and in the
morning O'Keefe is said to have re
ported him to the superintendent. This
created considerable hard feeling.
Jacques is said to have threatend to
get even.
Didn't Know Who Hit Him.
Thursday afternoon Jacques and "tiis
wife were down town shopping. When
near the Palace Clothing- compkTiy's
store at Seventh' and' Rdberf'titreets a
man called to him. O'Keefe was sit
ting in front of a saloon with several
other men. Mrs. Jacques walked! to
wards Robert street and waited for her
husband. He joined her in a few mo
ments. "Someone hit me," said he,
"and I don't know who it was." Blood
was rushing from the man's mouth
and there was a gasn under his eye.
"While talking to O'Keefe," he con
tinued, "I was struck from behind."
The policeman at Robert street was
notified, but when he looked for the
assailants the men had disappeared. .
Shortly after 6 o'clock yesterday
morning the fight was renewed.
O'Keefe and Jacques met near the
Jackson street bridge on Pennsylvania
avenue. There were but few words
passed between the men before blows
were exchanged. Mrs. Curran, who
lives directly opposite from where the
fight occurred, witnessed the trouble.
She said: "First one man seemed
to get th.; better of the fight and then
the other. I know neither of the men,
and could not say which started the
fight. All at once one man fell face
downward and the other jumped upon
him. He pounded him for several
minutes and then a by-stander pulled
him off. Both walked away terribly
beaten. It was all done so quickly
that if I were to see the men again I
could not recognize them.''
All Tell the Same Story.
Others who saw the fight relate
about the same story. They say that
O'Keefe pulled a revolver and struck
Jacques over the head with the weap
on. Jacques staggered forward and
knocked the gun from his assailant's
hand. He then fell to the ground and
O'Keefe jumped on top of him.
Says the Watchman "Got Him."
When separated both men left for
home. When Jacques arrived at his
house. No. 855 Albemarle street, he
was exhausted. He was unable to tell
how he was injured other than to say:
"The watchman got to me, and I was
licked." Mrs. Jacques put him to bed
and called Dr. Christianson. Before the
physician arrived the man lapsed into
unconsciousness. \ Later 5 Dr. - Nichols
was summoned,.but said that nothing
could be done for the injured man He
died at 12:30 o'clock.
Coroner A.-W. Miller 'was notified and
had * the remains removed to - Theodore
Bunker s undertaking- rooms, 381 North
Washington street, where an autopsy was
held. The post-mortem showed death to
be due to a hemorrhage of the brain
wnich caused a clot of blood on the left
side of the head. The man's right eye
was blackened, and tnere were several
scars on the neck and face. "■ .. •.--.. -■
O'Keefe did not . know of * the Jacques
death until arrested in his room yesterday
afternoon. About 10 o'clock, accompanied
by Charles McKenna, another Great
rsorthern watchman, he appeared in the
police court and asked for a warrant for
Jacques' arrest. The application was re
ceived and the warrant would have been
issued yesterday afternoon had not the
man died. _ -. ''_',"
O'Keefe Is Badly Cut.
* O'Keefe ls badly cut about the head and
face. There are two large gashes across
his forehead, and his scalp is cut He
says that Jacques kicked him. -
At the county jail last night he refused
to discuss the fight or tell how It ha P
pened. His attorney, Daniel Lawler in
structed him to say nothing of the affray.
O'Keefe told Capt. Clark that Jacques
was the aggressor. :■. ■?. „;;•--, ■r,??~>iuca

Horovitz Case Leads to Discussion tn
Which the Retort Courteous Is *
Brought Out.
I |
Those who attended the meeting of the
city hall and court house commission yes
terday afternoon were treated to a lively
little tilt, in which Mayor Smith and Aid.
Bantz were the principal figures.
Last month the commission at the in
stance," it is said, of Mayor Smith, re<
tired Morris Horovitz, a> janitor, for al
leged remarks not calculated to strength
en his interests with his superior. Given
his job through the efforts of Aid. Bantz,
that official called to intercede for his
"I can't stop now to listen to any ar
gument," Interruped Mayor Smith, who
was presiding, as Mr. Bantz prepared to
air his grievance. "I am going hunting
tomorrow and want to get away."
"There was many a man who stopped
and made an argument for you when you
were out of a position," Aid. Bantz re
plied. J,
"You only made one speech for me," re
torted Mayor Smith.
"Did you make any more for me?" Mr
Bantz inquired.
Mr. Bantz's entrance into the chamber
was about the time when adjournment
was to be taken, and without further
comment Mayor Smith declared the meet
ing closed. Mr. Bantz insisted that the
case be reopened so that he could speak
in the discharged janitor's favor, but it
was refused.
Mayor Smith Proclaims the Working
Men's Holiday and Urges
Rest for All.
Mayor Smith yesterday issued two
proclamations, one for the observance
of Labor day, next Monday, and for
St. Paul day at the state fair.
For Labor day Mayor Smith re
quests as far as possible the cessation
of all labor and the closing: of all
places where labor is performed. He
desires that all who labor with their
hands shall be given an opportunity
for rest and recreation.
For St. Paul day at the state fair
he asks that all who can do so lay
aside their usual avocations on that
day and attend the fair.

The person who thinks he cannot get
along without his morning drink of
coffee is pretty hard to convince unless
he is treated like Mrs. Clara Hoffman,
of Portland, Ore., treated her land
lady's son. She says: "Having suf
fered with stomach trouble for several
years, I determined to discontinue the
use of coffee and try Postum Food
I carefully followed directions for
making and the result was a beverage
very pleasing to the taste. I induced
my husband to give it a trial and soon
noticed the improvement.
He complained of 'heart trouble,' but
as he drank coffee I felt sure that this
was the cause. It proved to be so, for
after having used Postum for a short
time his 'heart trouble' completely dis
Last year we went East and while
there boarded with a private family.
Our landlady complained of sleepless
ness and her son of obstinate stomach
trouble. It wa a plain case of coffee
poisoning in both. Knowing what
Postum had done for me, I advised a
trial, but the son declared he wanted
none of that 'weak, watery stuff.' Well,
I had been making Postum Coffee for
myself and husband and next morning
I offered him a cup and he drank it,
not knowing what it was. 'Well,' I
said, 'you seem to like Postum after
all.' 'What,' he exclaimed, 'that was
not Postum; why, that tasted fine.
Mother, if you learn to make it like
this I will always drink it.' The next
morning she watched me and I explain
ed the importance of allowing it to
boil long enough. After that we all
drank it regularly, and our landlady
an 4 her son soon began to get well.
They continued its use after we re
turned home, and recently wrote me
that they are improving dally."

Says Everything Is Expensive at Nome,
But Whisky Is Within the Reach
of Everybody.
"Evaporated grub did it," said Roxey
Reber, referring: to the weight he is
carrying. "I've -been : living on evap
orated potatoes, {onions, beef and salt
pig. Up at Nome there is nothing
fresh but the booze and that is evapor
ating pretty fasti f
"It is a great town in a great coun
try, even if we aio have to get along
with condensed food, x There is nothing
but gold produced in> the country yet
and it costs plenty to ship food up
from the coast cities.;
"Eggs sell for is 3 % dozen and that
is about a fair illustration of the cost
of provisions. There has been some
reduction in the prioe of the actual
necessaries of life though. Whisky
only costs 25 cents a drink. It used to
be 50 cents, but the populace rose up
and threatened to quit drinking if it
was not brought within reach of all.
"There are five or six thousand peo
ple in Nome and not a bad one in the
lot." •
Mr. Reber, who was formerly a ca
terer-in St Paul, has been in business
in Nome for three years. He is on his
way to Dcs Moines, lowa, with the
body of his wife, who died last winter
at Nome.
Officer Is Detailed to Prevent Violation
of Fire Limits Ordinance in
Shields Building.
A special officer now guards th«
warehouse of the Shields Sorghum
company, which the council had been
Informed had been erected before a
permit had been granted and no fur
ther work will be permitted until an
ordinance authorizing the building has
been passed.
"I am afraid Aid. Bantz and the
committee on streets were a little has
ty about that building," said Building
Inspector Elerbe yesterday. The
warehouse is not completed, as Mr.
Bantz was informed, nor will It be
until proper authority has been given.
We stopped work twenty-four hours
after the structure was commenced
and again this morning, when a special
man was detailed to see that our or
ders were obeyed.
The building is in the rear of a brick
block on Third street, near Seventh,
and is in the care of Aid. Elder. It is
understood the owners, taking their
cue from other cases, simply went
ahead with the work, figuring that as
Mr. Elder was a member of the coun
cil there would be no trouble in get
ting the permit through the two coun
cil bodies.
Yesterday work on the structure was
again started, but the building depart
ment fearing further trouble prompt
ly put a stop to it and detailed an in

Mrs. Clara B. Marsh, of Holland, Vt.,
Suffering Under the Delusion That
Enemies Were Pursuing Her, Throws
Herself Out of a Room in the Ken
dall Hotel.
Suffering under the delusion that se
cret enemies were intent upon taking
her life, Mrs. Clara R. Marsh, a woman
over seventy years of age, jumped
from the second story of the Kendall
hotel, yesterday morning, to
escape from her imaginary
pursuers. She died at St. Joseph's
hospital five hours after making the
leap, without regaining consciousness.
Mrs. Marsh, whose home Is at Hol
land, Vt., was en route from Portland,
Or., accompanied by her nephew, C.
S. Wilson. They stopped yesterday at
the Kendall hotel between trains. The
woman was suffering from nervous
prostration and her mind was derang
ed. She imagined that there was a
conspiracy to drown her, and it was
to rid herself of her supposed enemies
that she threw herself from the win
Deliberately Leaps to Alley.
Mr. Wilson left the room for an in
stant to arrange with the hotel clerk
about his baggage. While away the
woman went to the open window and de
liberately leaped into an alley below. She
was picked up unconscious and sent to St.
Joseph's hispital.
Her injuries were such that the house
physicians at the hospital at once said
that recovery was impossible. Her legs
were broken in several places and her
spine fractured. The shock was in itself
sufficient to cause death.
Mrs. Marsh, who is seventy-two years
of age, left her home in Vermont to visit
relatives in Portland. While in Oregon
her,health failed and she requested her
nephew, C. S. Wilson, to bring her back
to Vermont to die.
Suffered From Nervousness.
She was a sufferer from nervous pros
tration, and was constantly watched by
Mr. Wilson for fear that she would do
herself injury.
The body was removed last night from
the hospital to O'Halleran & Murphy's
undertaking rooms. The remains will be
shipped East this morning.
Mrs. Marsh was born in Vermont and
lived In Holland all her life, until she
moved West a few months ago. She is
weC known in her native state.
