SEEKS HIS GRAVE FOR FORTY YEARS MRS. ELEANOR M'BRIDE AT LAST FINDS HER HUSBAND'S PLACE OF BURIAL HE DIE DIN ALEXANDRIA, VA., IN SECOND YEAR OF WAR ftecords Recently Discovered by Mrs. Mcßride in the State, War and Navy Building in Washington—She Finds Grave in Alexandria Cemetery and Likewise Many Personal Belongings. Mrs. Eleanor Mcßride, of Water town, N. V., now residing with her married daughter, Mrs. Thomas Moore, of. Merriam Park, recently concluded successfully a search for her husband's remains. She began it forty years ago. On the fortieth anniversary of his death she saw his grave, for the first time, had it renovated and planted flowers upon it. In the summer of the first year ot the Civil war, Albert Mcßride said goodbye to his wife and two children and marched off with the Thirty-fifth regiment, New York volunteers. A year later he was lying ill with typhoid fever at Emory hospital, Alexandria, Va., writing letters to his wife occa sionally during convalescence. Sud denly he suffered a relapse and died. Unable to Gain a Trace of Him. Mrs. Mcßride wrote to the hospital for further Information, but the bat tles of Antietam, Spottsylvania and Fredericksburg, which ensued about that time, so thronged the hospitals with wounded men that it was impos sible to pay attention to inquiries of suph a nature, and, despite the most persistent effort, Mrs. Mcßrid€ was un able to find out what had become of her soldier husband. Letters were sent to every conceivable source of infor mation, but is was years later that the records were supposed to have been straightened out, and even then noth ing could be discovered recording the burial of Albert Mcßride. The author ities told the wife that he might be dead or he might not. If he were the remains might have been sent to some other family by mistake. Assurance was given that no pains would be spared to furnish her the information she sought. -Through all the intervening years Mrs. Mcßride has persisted in her search. When the veterans went to Washington for the big reunion in Oc tober, Mrs. Mcßride went with them. She searched through the records of Arlington and other military ceme teries, and at last, in the archives of the state, war and navy building, she found the name, record and description of her missing husband. Finds the Grave. She found his place of burial there, after seeking for days among countless rows of other soldier graves, with his name and the date of his death mark ed on the stone. In the property room of the ceme tery she found his personal belongings, including her letters to him, written so many years ago, even one which the chaplain had inscribed as having been received "too late for him to read," but which he held unopened in his hand as he died The seal of this letter remains unbroken. Mrs. Mcßride has decided to permit her husband's remains to lie with those of his comrades at Arlington. She will remain in Merriam Park for the winter and return to Watertown in the spring.

STEAMER IS SUNK WITH ALL ON BOARD This Is Thought to Have Been the Fate of the SylvanusJ.Macy. DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 27. —In a fu rious southwest gale on Lake Erie Sun day night the steamer Sylyanus J. Macy sprung a leak off Port Burwell, Ont, and plunged to the bottom, prob ably carrying her entire crew with her. The barge Mabel Wilson, which was being towed by the Macy, broke away from the steamer in the darkness and succeeded in sailing up the lake to Amherstburg, where she arrived this afternoon. The first news of the disaster was re ceived from Capt. J. J. Auterson, of the steamer Albright, which passed up the river early this morning. She re ported having passed through five miles of wreckage yesterday thirty miles southwest of Longpoint, consist ing of part of the cabin, life preservers and doors of some vessel. The cabin was painted white, but there was no distinguishing marks to tell what ves sel it was from. The arrival of the Wilson, however, leaves no doubt that the wreckage is from the Macy, as the last seen of that steamer was in the near vicinity. The Macy, with the Wilson in tow, left Buffalo last Saturday with a car go of coal. When half way up Lake Erie the gale was encountered, and when abreast of Port Burwell the tow line of the barge was thrown off by the crew of the Macy, leaving the schooner to shift for herself. When last seen by the crew of the Wilson, the Macy was laboring heavily in the shelter. If the crew had time to leave their ship before the plunge to the bottom, it is not believed the small boats could have lived long in the terrible sea. That nothing has been heard of them has convinced the own ers that all are lost. The Macy was owned by P. J. Ralph & Co., of Detroit, and was insured for $16,500. She is one of the older type of wooden steamers. She registered 752 tons. She was built in 1381. The only names of the crew obtain able at the office of the owners of the Macy are as follows: M. W. Gotham, Richland City, Wis., captain. Gotham, son of the captain, mate. F. Gregory, Detroit, first engineer. John Nugent, Algona, wheelsman. As the personnel of the crew of the steamer changes at nearly every port visited a complete list is not available in the office. The crew of the Macy probably numbered eighteen, as that is the number necessary to man a ship of her size. STOPS A RUNAWAY IN THE NICK OF TIME R. A. Bock Seizes Running Team Near the Windsor and Rescues Two Women. Two women in a hack were saved from a possibly serious injury near the Windsor hotel last night by the prompt action of R. A. Bock. They went away without even telling him their names. The horses started to run away on St. Peter, near third. Near the Wind sor were two busses and a hack block ing the street. Before the hack reach ed them, Mr. Bock leaped out from the sidewalk and stopped them, avert ing" a serious mixup. RUNAWAY HORSES SPILL DRIVER OUT Ed Helgeson Thrown From a Vehicle and Painfully Hurt. A spectacular runaway and wreck occurred on Broadway, near East Fourth street, about 10:30 last night, in which Ed Helgeson, of 713 Magnolia FOUR COUPLES EAT THEIR TWENTY- FIFTH THANKSGIVING DINNER TOGETHER Yesterday there were many dinner parties, mostly of a family nature, but there was one which was remarkable in the fact that eight persons who sat down to it were the same who ate their Thanksgiving dinner together twenty five years ago and on every Thansglv ing day since. Yesterday the club, which has come to be known as the "dinner gang," was entertained by Gen. and Mrs. M. D. Flcwer, on Ashland av enue. The other members of the club are Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McCardy, Capt. and Mrs. Henry A. Castle and Col. and Mrs. H. G. Hicks. All were present yes terday, and not one of them has missed the annual dinner in the twenty-five years. The first gathering came about street, sustained slig-ht injuries. Helge son was driving a team of fast horses belonging to Horrigan Bros. The horses got away from his and dashed down Broadway. Near the Northern Pacific railway building they divided on a water plug, leaving the buggy fast to the hydrant and spilling Helgeson out into the street. A passing pedestrian called the patrol wagon and Helgeson was taken to the central station, where hi 3 wounds were dressed. He sustained a couple of cuts on the head. Participants In Raffle Row Arraigned. Albert Gauger. Charles Hanson, Emil Wagner, Henry Hanson and Frank Tyler were arraigned in police court yesterday morning as a result of a row over a tur key raffle in- a saloon on Grotto and Ed mund streets Wednesday night. Gauger was arraigned on a charge of assaulting with a deadly weapon George Wolkersdorf, and his bail was fixed at $500. The other men were charged with disorderly con duct. AH the men will be given a hear ing Wednesday. Wolkersdorf was shot in the arm and Gauger showed the marks of several cuts in his face. -.1" Winter Is Coming. -. : ■ Get your storm sash and ' doors ■ from L.

PAUL GLOB 3, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1902. NORSE ARTIST VISITS ST. PAUL FRITHJOF SMITH-HALD, FORE MOST OF NORWEGIAN PAINT ERS, IS IN TQWN BRINGS PICTURES THAT BREATHE THE NOR"i*H Consul E. H. Hobe Entertains One of the Most Noted of European Artists —Some of His Works, Dealing With the Northland With Him. "De American artist in Paris —he is what you call chivalrous, is it not?" An energetic looking little man stood among some of his big canvases in Stevens and Robertson's art gallery yesterday and gazed reflectively at the jutting shoulder of a Norway mountain that his art had made to stand out with bold realism. The man himself, short, and on the sunny side of fifty, sug gested the land of fire and snow that he has painted so well, for the North winds have blown a ruddy glow into his cheeks and his eyes are of that in tense blue that is seen only in the eyes of a son or daughter of the far North. "They are all workers —those Ameri can artists over there, and they are accomplishing tings, many of them. When de law was made that put a duty on de works of foreign artists imported into dis country, of course it did not affect de American artist, but he worked as hard to get it repealed —that is what you call it, is it not? —as the foreign artist. I regret much" —here the little artist gave a shrug reminiscent of a long Paris residence —"that that most unjust law is still not repealed." Canvases Speak for Him. The canvases of Fwthjof Smith-Hald speak better for him to English peo ple than the artist himself, for he only speaks fluently his own Norwegian and the Trench tongue. This noted for eigner, who Is considered the foremost landscape and seascape artist of Nor way, is the guest of Consul E. H. Hobe, with whom he will remain for two weeks. He has brought with him on his visit to St. Paul a number of can vases, and these will be exhibited in Stevens and Robertson's art gallery, beginning today. Mr. Smith-Hald was superintending the hanging of the can vases yesterday. Although the artist has ppent twelve years of his life In Paris and later resided for some time in Antwerp, his pictures, are nearly all Norwegian scenes. The beauties of the Northern mountains and seas he has caught and imprisoned on his can vas. An aisle draftsman and a brilliant cclorlst, Mr. Smith-Hald excels par ticularly in his ability to depict the glorious atmospheric phenomena of his native country. Three big canvases already hung yesterday showed some thing of the artist's treatment. Pictures of Northern Norway. They were pictures of Northern Nor way. One shows the rugged Norwegian peaks with a great glacier in the cen ter and running down from it a glacial stream. "The contrast between the snowy and forbidding mountain tops and the lower valley, all green and summery, is striking. The painter has most realistically represented the mists that hang about those mountains. There is motion, brilliant color and a general bigness of treatment that makes the canvas a bold and striking one. A companion picture shows another and nearer glimpse of these same mountain tops. The third canvas is a view of the Northern seacoast on a winter morning. The frozen sea and the great white crags are seen through a mist that shimmers in the morning sun. A small canvas in place yester day also showed the painter's genius in atmospheric effects. It is a bit of the sea on a moonlight summer night. The moon is well above the horizon and its silver mist bathes the scene. The boats of the returning fishermen seem to be floating softly through this veil over the water. About fifteen of Mr. Smith-Hald's canvases will be in place today, and the general public is invit ed to attend the exhibit. Frithjof Smith-Hald is a member of the Royal Society of Art in Antwerp. His present home is in Bergen, on the Western coast of Norway, where he has built a beautiful country home. The artist has paintings in the muse ums of Lille, Reims, Bordeaux, Bou logne, Haag and Cologne. through Mrs. McCardy, who invited the others to dine-with them on Thanks giving-, and the guests proved so con genial that the next year the same guests gathered again, and so on un til yesterday the club celebrated its silver anniversary. The "dinner gang" has no officers except Capt. McCardy, who was elected dean several years ago. Yesterday papers were read on the personnel of the club, and a per manent record of the gatherings will be inaugurated and the book kept by each hostess in turn, and when the last survivor has the book she will de posit it with the State Historical so ciety. All of the men are veterans of the war of 1861, though it was after the war that they became acquainted. COTTON EXPORTER OF TEXAS ARRESTED Suspected of Connection With a Swindle Involving $200,000 or More NEW YORK, Nov. 27.—William Lan dau, said to be a wealthy cotton ex porter of Texas, was arrested here today on suspicion of being connected with a swindle involving, it is said, $200,000 or more. The firm alleged to be swindled is that of Ladenburg, Thalmann & Co., bankers of this city. The arrest, according to the district attorney, was made in the office of this banking firm this afternoon. Members of the firm will not talk and further details are lacking. The charge against Landau is "suspicion of a felony." Mr. Land's counsel declares his client is honest and that an injustice has- been done him. He said Land's home was in Buffalo instead of Texas. Mcors Again In Revolt.

Here is a good idea for getting an elaborate tablecloth at small cost. A woman who plies her needles skilfully bought some lace collars at a great re duction, they being of fine quality, but too extreme to remain in style. She worked these up into a tablecloth, two forming a centerpiece and one being placed in each corner. Such a cloth, if purchased under ordinary circum stances, would have cost about $200, while she obi-*"-" *~"— COOPER CASE IS A MYSTERY Has Remained in Unconscious Condition at City Hospital for Over Twenty-four Hours. A lonely and . friendless life, a past of -which she rarely spoke, a hard struggle to keep body and soul to gether, with constant pinching to save money for a prospective home, and now a sickness of the brain which baf fles the diagnosis 9f physicians; that is the sad epitome of the existence of Mrs. Alice Cooper, who now lies in a comatose condition at the city hospi tal. The woman was taken from the home of O. H. Round Wednesday aft ernoon in a semi-conscious condition, suffering from pains in her head. Since her arrival at the hospital she has remained unconscious. Several doctors, besides the city physician have examined her and not one has been able to form a definite conclusion as to the cause of her con dition. Her physical condition might be the forerunner of insanity or have been caused by drugs. Some of the physicians ascribe it to a general ner vous breakdown. "The woman," said Mr. Round last night, "came to us a week ago last Saturday. Last Saturday she began to act queerly. She could not do her KILLS HIMSELF ON WEDDING DAY Lies Wirthing in Death Agony While Fiancee Awaits Him at Altar. Special to The Globe. DES MOINES, lowa, Nov. 27.—Bert McNutt was to have been married to Miss Magdaline Gnth at noon today, but failed to appear at the altar at the appointed time, and when his pa rents went to their home an hour later they found him writhing in death ag ony. He had shot himself, and died in three hours, leaving a letter to his fiancee protesting his affection for her, but not explaining the reasons for his suicide. His relatives believe that he became mentally deranged in contem plation of marriage without sufficient funds. The bride's family is prominent socially. ROBBER RECALLS EARLY DAYS AND RELENTS Could Not Let Thanksgiving Day Go By Without Returning Watch With Pfc&ire of Wife swukßaby. Special to The Globe, CHICAGO, Nov. 27. —A messenger Tjoy drifted into the office of Chief of Police O'Neill today and laid a pack-; age upon his desk. This bundle con tained a romance, for when it was opened the chief found therein a watch and chain and a letter from a repentant footpad. In the case of the watch was the picture of a very pretty young woman and a baby and in the accompanying Jetter the- footpad said he held up a man last night and took the watch" from him; along with some other plunder. "But I could not stand for the picture of the wife and baby," he said in his explanatory letter to the chief. "I have a wife and baby of my own and I couldn't let Thanksgiving day go by without returning this watch. It is no good to me with the pictures in it and I have not the heart to destroy them. lam a hard man, have seen the inside of more than one penitentiary, but there are some things that I can not stand for. This picture takes me back to better days." The chief will publish the portrait in the Chicago papers tomorrow in the hope that it will meet the attention of the man who was robbed and that he will call for the watch. The foot pad in his letter gave no hint of where the robbery took place, and as the holdups average fifteen or twenty a night it is difficult to locate the owner of the watch. THANKSGIVING DAY AT HOME AND ABROAD President Has an Unostentatious Feed and Americans in Europe Drink Toasts. WASHINGTON, D. C. t Nov. 27.— President Roosevelt observed Thanks giving day by taking a long horseback ride into the • country. He and Mrs. Roosevelt had at their Thanksgiving dinner only members of the family and a few personal friends. The table was set in the state dining room. LONDON, Nov. 27.—N.early five hun dred American citizens and a sprink ling of distinguished Englishmen and women participated in the annual Thanksgiving dinner held at the Cecil hotel tonight under the auspices of the American society in London. The company included Ambassador Choate and Mrs. Choate, all the mem bers of the embassy staff now here, Robert McCormick, American ambas sador to Russia, Consul General Evans, the Right Hon. H. H. Asquith, Lord Reay, Lork Fairfax (the American peer), Field Marshal Lord Roberts, and Sir Henry Norman. The speeches were numerous and abounded in good feeling and reciprocijJ compliments. Toasts in honor of KSig Edward and of President Roosevelt were drunk with equal enthusiasm. PARIS, Nov. 27. —Thanksgiving day was quietly observed here by the American colony. Special services were held in several churches. BERLIN, Nov. 27.—Three hundred Americans celebrated Thanksgiving day by dining together tonight at the Kaiserhof. Retiring Ambassador White, who presided, proposed the healths of the German Emperor and President Roosevelt, who, he said, were in marf respects alike. SEETHLNG IN CATALONIA BODES TfiOUBLE FOR SPAIN Objection to Making Teaching of Spanish Language. Compolusory. MADRID, Nov. 27.—A serious agitation is threatened in Barcelona over the out come of the publication of decrees pro hibiting the recitation of. the catechism in the Catalan language and making the teaching of the Spanish language com pulsory. Numerous protests couched in the Catalan. French and English lan guages have been sent to the minister of education. The students at Barcelona made a dem onstration today and were charged by the civil guard ar.d dispersed. The civil guard afterward occupied the university. Heated debates are proceeding in the chamber of deputies on the subject of home rule for Catalonia. work and complained of dizziness. She grew gradually worse during the week and Wednesday morning I found her in the pantry leaning against the wall. I told her to go back to bed. Later in the day she began to cry out and moan and groan so that my wife sent for me. I called Dr. Cook, and later she was sent to the hospital. "She rarely talked of herself. Once she said to my wife that she hoped to get a little home of her own to live in, but beyond that she said nothing of herself." At the intelligence office little was known of her. She had been there several times, and had, during the two years of their acquaintance, remained in places for long periods. A search of her room revealed a scanty bundle of clothing, some tea, sugar, cookies and bread, and a box of herb tea which she had been tak ing. There were no bottles or medicine boxes lying about; no pocketbcok, let ters or papers. If, as she had told, she had saved any money towards her home, it was not among her posses sions, nor was any trace of it found. The woman, Mr. Round said, never went out nor received callers. FRENCH EPISCOPATE IN MORE TROUBLE Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops May Lose Salaries for Signing a Document. PARIS, Ncv. 27.—The government recently submitted to the council of state the action of the greater part of the French Episcopate in signing a manifesto last month for the presenta tion to the" senate and chamber of deputies, in which the law of associa tions was discussed and which urged a return to the principles of the con cordat as the only means of securing religious peace in France. The question submitted to the coun cil of state was whether the signing of this manifesto was not contrary to the article of the concordat forbidding the Episcopate to act in concert. The council has decided that the signator ies committed an abuse of authority. This decision may lead to the sus pension of the salaries of all the French cardinals, archbishops and bishops save five who did not sign the document. Our Safety Deposit Vaults are the best.
