Pension Department Recog-
nizes $1,300 Claim
William Mitchell, 640 Brown street,
St. Paul, yesterday received a four
figure check from the pension depart
ment of the United States, and here
after will receive a monthly pension of
$24. The pension claim of over $1,300
was secured through the good offices
of the adjutant general's department of
Minnesota, and it has been pending
since.Sept. 16, 1899.
Mitchell is a veteran volunteer of
the Twelfth Minnesota, .which was or
ganized for service in the Spanish-
American war. While in the service
he contracted heart disease, and is now
totally incapacitated for manual labor.
Difficulty was experienced in proving
that heart disease had been contracted
in the service, but Maj. Seebach, who
had charge of the claim, convinced the
pension bureau that Mitchell had con
tracted diseases in the service which
resulted in heart disease. Notice of the
final .allowance of the claim was re
ceived some days ago, and yesterday
Brown received a pension warrant for
$1,382. which pays his pension up to
July 4. Brown is almost toally help
less, and it is expected that his pen
sion will shortly be increased from $24
to $30 per month. \
This is one of the largest claims ever
pushed through the department by the
Minnesota adjutant general's office.
Recently a claim was allowed the
minor heirs of Daniel Stowell of $1,465.
Stowell was an Illinois soldier who died
at Stillwater, and his children became
separated. Several of them are in the
state school for dependent children at
Owatonna. and the others are being
cared for by charitable families. They
will receive small monthly allowances
from the government, in addition to the
sum indicated, until they are sixteen
years old.
Mike Conners Makes Fuss Over His
Washing and Draws Ten Days
Mike Conners wanted to clean out a
Chinese laundry on Jackson street
Thursday, declaring that he had some
time previously left a bundle of wash
ing there. He appealed to Patrolman
Tom Galvin to assist him in his dis
pute with the Mongolian, and in the
end. was taken to the central police
station. Judge Hine yesterday sent
Conners to the workhouse for ten days.
"It ain't fair, judge," persisted the
prisoner. "I left that laundry with the
chink and he would not give it to me.
When I asked the policeman to help
me he accused me of stealing an apron
that I carried. Then he left me, say
ing that he would be back in a few
minutes. He was gone two hours.
When he came back I upbraided him
and he threw me in."
$10,000 DAMAGES
Miss Catherine Bow Wins Suit to Re-
cover for Personal Injuries
Miss Catherine Bow, who brought
suit by her attorney, James R. Hickey,
against the Gamoai Glove company
to recover heavy damages for personal
injuries alleged to have been received
by being struck by a falling sign while
passing in front of the defendant com
pany's place of business on Wabasha
street, was yesterday awarded a verdict
for $10,000 by a jury which heard the
case in the United States district court.
The case was tried before Judge Mor
ris and has been on trial since Wed
Miss Bow alleged in her complaint
that she was permanently injured by a
heavy sign which fell on her. It was a
sign that protruded out over the side
walk and fell while the plaintiff was
passing the building, striking her on
the head.
I Herman Heitmiller, who sued out a
writ of habeas corpus to secure, posses
sion of his child, which has been in the
custody of its maternal grandparents
since the death of its mother a week
ago, was awarded the care of the child
by Judge Lewis, in the district , court,
yesterday.* The grandparents, Mr/ and
Mrs? Mathias Becker, wanted to keep
the child because, they Hated,? the fa
ther was not: a \ proper "person to care
for it, but when brought into court
~„ yesterday the grandparents made no
objections to giving it up, a|d the little
one was taken from the coiiu room by
its father. y lj?--.
Current Passes Down Iron Post
and Burns Man in Saloon
"Joe" Thomas, a young mechanic, of
106 Robertson street, West side, knows
how it feels to be struck by lightning.
As he was passing S. J. McDonough's
saloon, 380 Como -avenue, corner of
Western avenue, just after 3 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, he took refuge in
the front entrance of the two-story
brick building to escape the driving
rain. Beside him in the entrance stood
Deputy Health Commissioner Dennis
J. O'Neil a man named Mason and a
fourth man. Thomas leaned against
an iron column.
Within a few moments several mild
rolls of, thunder culminated in a ava
lanche crash? The four men decided.it
was less damp .inside the saloon.
Thomas, as he started towards the in
ner door remarked, "Gee, that hurt me
somehow," but the other men thought
he meant that it shocked him.
They were hardly* within the saloon
when the barkeeper observed that
Thomas was supporting himself along
side the wall and was-very pale. He
had barely time to give his name and
, address when he fainted. A dose of
brandy revived him after ten minutes.
Police Surgeon Moore and his as
sistant, Dr. H. C. Doms, who had been
summoned, administered other reme
dies and learned that Thomas com
plained of numbness in his left arm.
He was ***aken to his home. Dr. Doms,
examining him there, found a dark red
band four inches widethe course of
the electric current, from the left side
of his neck below the ear down over
his left shoulder and along the outside
of his left arm to the wrist. The mark
resembled that made by scalding wa
ter. The arm was numb and paralyzed,
but it will probably regain its normal
condition after some weeks. In other
respects Thomas appeared unhurt.
The injured man has a wife and two
children. . ...
It is probable that electricity passed
to the ironwork of the Como avenue
building from a tall telegraph pole
that stands directly in front of Mc-
Donough's saloon.

track. He fell forward into the fender
and was carried more than a hundred
feet. As the car* stopped he dropped
upon the pavement beyond reach of the,
car wheels arid was not hurt. '". '
He was picked up and dusted off by
a sympathetic crowd, to whom he ex
plained that he -had* never admired car
fenders before as they should be ad
mired. " He walked to his office in the
Pioneer Press building. He declared
later that he wasn't quite sure that his
clothes escaped injury, but that, so
far, he felt merely shaken up. He at
tended to business during the after
noon and then went out to White Bear
lake, where he is passing the summer.

tions are now and will continue to be

going this association is in favor of form
ing a confederation with the other ward

L. W. Crandall, whose- office is in a
building "across. State street and about
on a r level with the office in which the
tragedy .took place, was. an- eyewitness
to a ! portion of it. He says:; £'-' ; . • LV
'TAvas..sitting Jit our'window with a,
friend when our attention was attract
ed by cries of 'Help!' 'Help! Oh,
my God,!' „ and, loud 'screaming, which
attracted-our attention to an office on a
level with our own. There we saw a
man struggling a woman whose
cries attracted our attention. The man"
was try tog to throw her out of J the
window and had her almost out at two
different times, holding her by the legs
with her head out of the 'window, to
which she Was clinging. We could see
her terrible struggles with him. I She
wrenched herself loose and then he
pounded her with his fist, while she
was prone on the floor. She was kick
ing, striking and screaming at the top
of her voice. Then he ceased pounding
her and we '■_ heard three shots. He
grabbed Her again after he had shot
her and once,.more tried to throw her
from the window. I sprang for the ele
vator to go to her assistance. I reach
ed Griswold street, and as I turned the
corner of State I saw the man hanging
by his hands to the window ledge. He
hung there "for thirty seconds and
seemed to be trying to reach the floor
below. But rhe gave out and dropped."
Told in Letters
A letter, f written by Swayse, was
found, which,; it is said, explains the
tragedy. It' is alleged that the letter
says that Miss Alvord and Swayse had
been intimate, that the intimacy was
responsible Jfor'^wayse's losing his po
sition at the house of correction,' and
that Miss Alvai^d had been hounding
him. ''V .? '"
The first letter of the two found in
Swayse's pocket was addressed to Mrs.
Annie E. Seeney, of Saginaw, Mich.,
warning her not to let her son marry
Miss Alvord. It is dated June 20 and
declares that when both Swayse and
Miss Alvord -were | employed at the
house of correction, she "tempted him
and he fell." It speaks of her wiles and
treachery and calls her one of the most
deceitful of women "that ever disgraced
the earth.',* ;;,- .. ;..
Swayse mentions his two young
daughters and declares that.his life had
been blameless until the woman invited
him to her room in the: house of cor
rection. He declares that their inti
macy continued until April of this year;
Swayse says his home Is broken up as
a result. He then says the woman has
told him that she ;is going to marry
Mrs. Seeney's son George, and declares
that he wants ,to "save your son from
the disgrace I have suffered." He men
tions Mr. Terry in the letter and says
that Miss Alvord and he are canvassing
the .state in a buggy for a sewing ma
chine company:.'. . .
The second letter is one from Miss
Alvord to Swayse, written while she
was out in the states It says she ex
pects "George^ to send for her by the
Ist of August, and tells of her success
as an agent. * It says in conclusion: "I
have not forgotten you, and never will,
and we can always be friends."

Thousands Flock Here and
( * Attend the First Annual
State Convention
At the opening session yesterday of
the first annual state convention of. tho
Fraternal Order of Eagles," Joseph H.
Ellis, of Minneapolis, was chosen tem
porary president, and W. J. Waldron
temporary secretary. It is considered
likely that they will today be formally
elected to the positions.
The convention was called to order
by James H. Burns,' of St. Paul, chair
man of the local entertainment com
mittee, and J. H. .Shadewald, of Min
neapolis, by virtue of his office of dep
uty grand state president for Minneso
ta, became temporary presiding officer,
and W. J? Waldron was elected secre
tary. • •■.-..-. - yyy- ?yy .• .- •
F. C. Sehiffmann did the honors for
the local aerie and for the city, the re
sponse being by Mr. Shadewald. T. J.
McDermott made an address, in which
he paid tribute to the objects of the or
der and called attention to its rapid
growth. y,
A permanent organization was form
ed with the officers noted, J. T. McNah
being named as worthy conductor, as
sisted by Joseph Wagner, Nicholas
Mertz and C. Warren. . President Ellis
named the following committees:
Resolutions— of Two Har
bors; Wormwood, of White Bear; Mad
den, of Duluth; Benrick, of St. Cloud,
and Burns, of St. Paul.
Ritual—W. E. Brown, of Duluth;
Jensen* of Stillwater; Foote, of St.
Paul; Harrington, of Bemidji, and Far
rell, of Minneapolis.
Order Is Growing
J. H. Shadewald, as deputy grand
state president, presented a most inter
esting report on the condition of the
order, showing that the smaller cities
of the state are fast organizing and
that he believes that in a short time
there will not be a town of any great
consequence in Minnesota that will not
have an aerie of Eagles. He recom
mended that - all lodges should make
provision for a degree team, holding
that only by so doing will it be possible
to make a proper impression on the
candidates being initiated. In the past,
he claimed, the lodges have not exer
cised as great care in admitting mem
bers as should be the case in the future.
"Members must stop.discussing aerie
business in public places," the report
says, and exhorts the local officers to
see that violators of this class are
properly reported and punished. Re
ports from lodge officials must in the
future be more prompt, and if the dis
trict grand presidents fail in the future
to perform their duty in . this regard
they will be deposed and their suc
cessors named.' y- y
. Lodges that have been installed in
the past few months and which have
•not yet received their numbers are:
Albert Lea, White Bear, Austin and
Marshall. Those that have completed
the lists and are ready to be installed
are: , Per ham and Hopkins. — These
have the charter lists about filled and
will shortly report for installation:
Barnesville, Crookston, Wells? Winona,
Faribault, Pipestone, Cass Lake. Wa
seca, Owatonna, Willmar, Luverne and
Sandstone. - -. ■ \
Soon Have 10,000 Eagles in State J
When these lodges have been formed
Mr. Shadewald believes that there will
be more than 10,000 full-fledged Eagles
in the state, ready- to take wing.
The address by A. E. Partridge,
grand secretary of the order, scheduled
for the afternoon session, was post -
poned until today, as was the contest
among the degree teams in a demon
stration of the secret work. The selec
tion of the place of holding the next
state convention was made a special
order for this afternoon at 2:30. Wil
liam Edwards, grand .vice president,
was. in attendance also, and'assisted in
organizing the state convention.
The convention is being held to
bring together all the Eagles in the
state Into a body, the Minnesota mem
bers of the order having heretofore
been compelled to transact all business
direct with the national or* grand
body. There were more than 200 dele
gates in attendance at yesterday's ses
sion, and a greatjnany in addition ar-.
rived on the afternoon trains in time to
participate in the smoker in the even-
ing. .
The greatest enthusiasm prevails
concerning the parade Saturday even
ing, and it is expected -that a good
showing will be made. All participants
are requested to be on hand promptly
at 8 'oclcok, when the start will be
made from Rice park.

New Jersey Man Makes a Huge Haul
of Sturgeon y
SALEM, N. J., June 24.—A strike of.
gold in the Klondike caused no more
excitement than did the catch of five
roe sturgeon made by Harry Bramble,
of Hancock's Bridge. Although the
fishermen at Bayside have frequently
been*'landing a fish or two, no large
catches have been made. When Bram
ble came in with his catch the excite
ment in the village of the fishermen
was Intense. .
-Bramble was fishing in Blake's chan
nel, below Bombay Hook, on the Dela
ware side of the bay. yHe was*" drifting
down with the ebb tide and sighing for
a "strike." 7 Just at the slack tide? a
fish struck his net, and before he could
get this sturgeon into the boat four
others were lying upon the surface of
the water. None escaped. All were
large roe fish, and very valuable.
Sturgeon roe. is worth 95 cents, a
pound, and Bramble's? catch will net
him about $300, enough \ to pay his -ex
penses during the ; entire-season.
. Belford Wood,' of * Pensgrove, had a
phenomenal streak of luck, 'catching.
eight sturgeon, •'five of .-.which were roe
fish.- ?: Wood ?also realized enough to
clear expenses. ?

terday at Minneapolis in . the '"Brother
against Brother" case of E. C. Shevlin
against T. H. Shevlin, wherein th*- plain
tiff seeks to recover for property con

married sisters. Yesterday, while Mrs.
E. C. Shevlin was testifying, Mrs. T. H.
Shevlin appeared in Judge Simpson's
court room and listened attentively to
the testimony. She will probably be call

able by a drizzling rain, which made '*•■■'
moving about the grounds unpleasant. ;
This, however, was compensated for in
a large measure by the numerous re
ceptions and entertainments in the dif

PARIS. June 24.— remarkable case of
juvenile depravity is reported from Scry._
in the department of Aisne. M. Germain,
and' his wife went out, leaving their one
year-old son In charge of the eldest: girl,
named Adrienne, aged twelve. Seeing,
that the baby was asleep, she went into
the village for some milk, and in order, not
to wake the child got out of the window,
leaving it open.
She had scarcely disappeared when two
little boys named Maurice Herin and
Jean Bldeaux, each aged six, who were
playing close by, entered by the open
window. Finding the baby asleep; they
put it into an "empty potato "sack, which
they proceeded to stuff with grass," and"
then carried It between them to the wa
ter butt outside the house. They threw
the sack into the butt and then scam
pered away. -
When the sister returned she was
astonished at finding that the baby had
vanished, and after several hours' search
found it drowned In the water butt. As
the boys had been seen near the house,
the mayor of the village sent for them,
and in the presence" of the horrified pa
rents they, related what they did, though
they were apparently unaware that they
had done anything wrong.
