Some of the children were barefoot and in rags, while others were from the more wealthy fami lies of the St. Anthony hill district, but all were accorded the same treatment by his eminence, who appeared delighted at the presence of the little tots. There was no shade at the corner, but a kindly woman had thoughtfully provided a chair for the cardinal, and as the chil dren approached the cardinal, he placed his hand upon their heads and gave them the blessing- of the church. It was a most impressive scene, and the little ones gave evidence of their appreciation by receiving the blessing and stepping back in reverential silence. Not a word was spoken during the im promptu ceremony, but when his emi nence kad boarded his car and waved a farewell salute, a hearty cheer went up from the proud little group in the street. 'Spent the Day in Minneapolis Cardinal Satolli spent the greater part of yesterday in Minneapolis, where he and the visiting priests and dignitaries of the church were entertained at a luncheon at Lake Harriet. The tables were on the open portico, directly facing the lake. Before leaving for Minneapolis the car dinal spent the early part of the day at the homo of Archbishop Ireland. Shortly after 10 o'clock Cardinal Satolli and party walked over to the Selby car line, where they boarded the private car of Thomas Lowry. It was while waiting for Mr. Lowry's car that the cardinal received and blessed the little children who gath ered to witness his departure. The party proceeded direct through the Twin Cities to Lake Harriet, not making the scheduled stop at the West hotel on account of the lateness of the hour. It was after 12 o'clock when the party reached the lake, and the cardinal was escorted at once to the pavilion where luncheon was in waiting. The tables were arranged in a long line, extending the length of the porch, with his eminence occupying the seat of honor. Much of the conversation was carried on in Italtnji. The day was an ideal one. and the car dinal remarked more than once upon the beauty of the scenes about him. Father O'Reilly Welcomes Cardinal Following the luncheon Rev. Father O'Reilly made a brief address, in which be spoke of the pleasure it gave him to have the cardinal present. That pleasure, the cardinal was assured, was joined in by the people of the Twin Cities and the Northwest Cardinal Satolli responded briefly. A short time was spent in seeing the beauties of the lake and park, after which the party returned to St. Paul, where • 'anlinal Satolli was taken to Archbishop home. In the party yesterday, aside from the cardinal I. were: Archbishop Ireland, of St. Paul; Arch bishop Redwood. of New Zealand; Bishops Cooter. "McGohick. O'Gorman and Bishop-elect Lenihan: Rev. Fathers P. K. Heffron, J. Giantoni, J. J. Lawler, J. M. Cleary. E. Lee. P. O'Conner. A. Andre. O. Andre. H. Ps-endergast. J. C Byrne. E. J. Wilber. M. Griffin. P. Lee. P. Sullivan. T. J. Gibbons. S. Odone. It. Richard. J. Gardiner. F. MeDermott. J. Harrigan. J. O'Reilly. F. Hrachosky, C. McDevitt. F. O'Brien. D. Jones. S. Broockbank; J. Moran. F. Dugan, T. K. Cullen. F. Hovoika. F. Jager and J. F. Dolphin. At 7:30 o'clock the cardinal and his suite left for Sault Ste. Marie over the Soo road in the private car of President Lowry. As already published, the car dinal will go by boat from the Soo to Buffalo, where he will visit Bishop Colton, of that diocese. It was as a representa tive of Bishop Colton that Dr. McGloyne, rector of the Buffalo cathedral, met Car dinal Satolli at Chicago. VOTED FOR PARKER Aberfe Denies Being Gray Man at Convention Daniel Aberle. who was C. D. O'Brien's alternate in the St. Louis convention and who remained in the convention when Mr O Brien. had departed for home, resents the report that he cast his vote for Judge Gray, of Delaware, in the convention. "After the tight that I made at Duluth in the interest of Judge Parker it is an absurdity to think for a moment that I would vote for any other candidate for the presidency than he." Mr. Aberle said 'I voted for Judge Parker, of course, and believe that his nomination is the best thing that could possibly happen the party in the nation. "The St. Louis convention was one that I shall not soon forget." said Mr. Aberle. "It was a convention rampant with en thusiasm and at times it looked squally Once the nomination of Judge Parker had been made, however, the delegates repre senting every state and every •« interest readily fell in line for him. and I regard his chances of an election as excellent in deed. -I have but one regret with respect to the convention, and that was the atti tude of the Duluth and Minneapolis dele gates in refusing to accord John I,ind the place on the resolutions committee due to Minnesota. It was not so much the re fusal as the conduct of the men in making it. I hope never to see so unfortunate an incident at a convention again." DRUNKS ARE SAFE WHEN IN THEIR HOMES John Mylick. living in Grove street, ■was discharged when arraigned in po lice court. He had been arrested at his home Thursday night on complaint of his wife, who said that he was drunk and had driven her and her child out of the house. The charge against him yesterday, however, was drunkenness only. As the court ex plained, a man had a right to get drunk in his own home. The alleged disorderly conduct could not be con sidered under the charge. Has No Money for His Wife August Malone, a restaurant cook, was in police court for non-support on complaint of his wife, Elizabeth Ma lone. Six months ago, it was said, a justice of the peace in Dakota county had ordered Malone to give his wife half his future wages. He had not disobeyed this order, neither had he l>aid his wife any money. He had done no work whatever. The cook furnish ed $100 bail, through a friend, and was released. He will appear for trial next Wednesday. WARD WORKERS TELL FEDERATION PLANS Articles of Association for Cen- tral Organization Are Drafted A plan for organizing the proposed city federation of wnard and district improvement associations was adopted yesterday at the city hall by represent atives of five of these associations. Of the seven men present the chair man, J. M. Hawthorne, belonged to the Sixth Ward Improvement association, as did Capt E. H. Wood. From the Fifth ward association came J. F. Selb and the secretary, T. J. Gronevold. F. H. Ellerbe. was a member of the St. Anthony Park association; F. R. Mc- Manigal of the Grand View Heights association (West side), and John E. Kjellberg, of the North End associa tion (Ninth ward). Mr. Ellerbe read articles of associa tion that the committee on permanent organization had prepared. Among the provisions of this document were that "the object most sublime" of the Federation of Improvement associa tions would be "the promotion of co operation among the ward and im provement associations to the end that, through harmdnious and con certed action, their efforts in behalf of the city's welfare might become more effectual; and, second, the encourage ment of all improvements that would add to the beauty, healthfulness and prosperity of the city; extend its edu cational facilities; increase the safety of life and property, or in any way augment the convenience, comfort and happiness of its citizens and render St. Paul a more desirable place of res idence." Politics to Be Barred "All legitimate means might be used for the attainment of the objects men tioned," continued Mr. Ellerbe, "pro vided, however, that no matter which was only of local interest to a particu lar ward or district should be acted upon, unless it was clearly shown that it did not conflict with the Interest of any other ward or "district represented in the federation; and provided fur ther, that no political question or mat ter of any political significance what soever should be in any way consid ered or entertained." The members of the federation would be, according to the article?, three representatives from each of the ward or district associations. An exec utive committee, consisting of one of the three representatives from each of the associations, would have general direction of the affairs of the federa tion, would devise means to secure the funds needed for federation work, and would direct the expenditure of such funds. One delegate from each of four associations would constitute a quorum of the executive committee. Mr. Ellerbe explaineolithat the com mittee" had left the objects of the fed era.tion rather general because the fed eration might desire to take action not foreseen. i n which cas« too close re strictions might prove f embarrassing. The committee had also agreed that, despite the varying aizes of the ward and district associations-, each of them was entitled to equal influence in the federation. On motion of Mr. McManigal it was voted that the report be accepted and that at 8 o'clock on Wednesday even ing, Aug. 3, three delegates from each local improvement association be in vited to meet in the council chamber at the city hall to effect a permanent organization of the federation on the basis of the report accepted. • As the meeting was about to close Chairman Hawthorne expressed sur prise at newspaper intimations that the federation might be used for po litical ends. '-That's ridiculous," he said. "There is no more politics in this than there would be in a union of churches. Why, there are Republic ans at this meeting and Democrats, and. for all I know, there are Social ists." SOLDIERS PROVE TO BE PROMPT FIRE FIGHTERS Efficiency of Fire Department at Snell ing Is Amply Demonstrated The efficiency of the fire department organized last fall among the soldiers at Fort Snelling was demonstrated yesterday by a practical test. Without warning the aepartment. a "smudge" fire was started in a condemned build ing. But the men turned out, laid hose and had two streams directed on the fire within six minutes after the alarm sounded. Capt. James Ferguson, Capt. Duncan Ferguson and Patrick Smith, of the St. Paul fire department, arranged the test. They were much gratified by the promptness and skill of the military fire fighters. It was under the direc tion of Capt. James Ferguson that the Snelling department was organized. ONE RUNAWAY HORSE STARTS ANOTHER Latter Knocks Down Patrolman Winkle but Is Finally Stopped A delivery team driven by Louis Turner started to run away yesterday afternoon on Wabasha street between Sixth and Seventh streets. "At Seventh street Turner's horse , frightened a horse driven by Frank. Flam-iig-an, an employe of the Franklin laundry. At the same corner Turner's horse quit running. Patrolman Winkle tried to halt the laundry steed, but: was knocked down and painfully bruised. Two blocks north, at Ninth street, Patrolman Gal vin had better luck. The drivers and the horses were not injured. Menton's Troubles Not Over The case of James Menton will be taken up in police court again today. He had been rearrested after leaving the workhouse, where he had been sent for taking $1 from a ba-ker. The sec ond charge, preferred by the C. S. Adams company, declared that Men ton, under the assumed name of Nor bick, had bought a suit of clothes ani a hat at the company'^ store and had made no payments on account of his purchase. Deaf Mute Has Case Continued A continuance until July 30 was granted in the case of Charles Hoff bar, a cteaf mute twenty-three years old, who h'jyl been involved in dispute watb- seme- HkTys last, month. He will probably be committed to a state school at^Faribault. THE ST. PAUL GLOBE/SATURDAY. JULY 16. 1904 VETERANS PREPARE" .. FOR ENCAMPMENT Minnesota Department of the G. A. R. Will Go to Boston on Official Train Col.. Harrison White, of Luverue, department commander for Minnesota_ G. A. R., was in St. Paul yesterday ana completed all arrangements for the official train which will carry the Minnesota department to the national encampment, to be held in Boston next month. The official train out of St. Paul will be over the North-Western, and east of Chicago the Michigan Central and New York Central lines will be used. The train, on which 250 Minnesotans prominent in the G. A. R. will take passage, will leave the Twin Cities the morning of Aug. 13. Sunday after noon a stop of three hours will be made at Niagara Falls, and the party will reach Boston Monday, Aug. 15, at 7 a. m. The train will be made up of a dozen Pullmans, tourist cars and an observa tion and buffet car. It will be one of the finest trains ever accorded the Minnesota department. "We are going in style this year," said Capt. Isaac L. Mahan, past de partment commander, who is assisting Commander White in arranging the details of the trip. "We will have every comfort on the train and expect to,have a party of between 250 and 300. Many of the veterans will taki their wives with them. A rate of $25.75 has been made for the round trip, and the payment of 50 cents in addition to this rate will entitle one to remain until Sept. 30." Gov. Van Sant, who is a past com mander, will go on the official train, and a number of other past command ers have already spoken foe passage. But the official train will not carry more than a small per cent of the Minnesota people who will attend the encampment. More than 1,500 Minne sota veterans are expected to go .to the encampment, and arrangements are already being made for parties from different sections of the state. In the absence from the Twin Cities of Commander White, Capt. Mahan will look after matters pertaining to the trip in St. Paul, and any informa tion desiied will be furnished by him. HEARST MEN DECLARE LOYALTY TO PARKER J. R. Bennett Jr. Issues Official Statement That They Will Support Him Hearst men in Minnesota have issued an official statement that they intend to, give the ticket nominated at St. Louis hearty and united support. James R. Bennett Jr., the St. Cloud at torney, who was the recognized head of the movement in this state looking to the nomination of Mr. Hearst at St. Louis, yesterday published a statement of the position of himself and of the large, ele ment in the state for whom he speaks in" the St. Cloud Times. Mr. Bennett says unequivocally that he and his associates in the Hearst move ment in Minnesota will give Judge^Parker and Senator Davis the fullest measure of their support. 1,000 TO ATTEND Ladies' Catholic Benevolent Association Holds Council The advance guard of the thousand and more delegates to the triennial national council of the Ladies' Catholic Benevolent association has reached St. Paul. A number of the officers of the supreme body are at the Ryan hotel and it is ex pected that their number will be largely augmented today. Mrs. Mary A. Flana gan. Cleveland, first vice president; Miss- Alicia Bianey, Buffalo; Miss Margaret Gallagher, New York, and Miss Kate Gaughran, Cleveland, grand trustees, have already arrived in the city and with them are some eight other women members of important committees charged with the work of perfecting the local arrangements for the triennial meeting. It is expected that the main body of the delegates will reach the city on Monday, coming on three special trains from Chi cago, and the convention will open its sessions Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock at the Peoples church. Pleasant avenue. Perhaps the most important question be fore the supreme council will be a- pro posed readjustment of the insurance-rates for its members, and it is expected that it w;ill not be settled until late in the ses sions of the council. Another matter of importance is a prop osition to change the method of represen tation in the national meetings. The great increase in membership of the as sociation has resulted in making unwieldy the conventions based on one delegate from each local association, and it is now proposed to change the plan by forming either county or district associations and giving these associations representation in the national body. It is expected that this proposal will not be passed without opposition and the council's sessionscprom ise to be enlivened by debate throughout. WILL ESTABLISH ZOO AT FISH HATCHERY Two Little Fawns, Confiscated by Game Wardens, Are First Inhabitants Two pretty little fawns have been placed in the big inclosure at the state fish hatchery at Indian Mour^ park, and it is proposed by the Minne^a fish and game commission to establish a perma nent zoo at the hatchery. The fawns were captured by deputy game wardens from men who illegally had thorn in their possession, and are the property of the state. One of the animals was taken from a hunter near Nickerson and the other from a man living north of Duluth. The animals are not more than a month old and are said to be' quite tame and domesticated. It is expected to secure a bear, a badger and other ani mals indigenous to Minnesota for the zoo. COURT EXONERATES UNLUCKY SENTRY Private C. O. McClure Cleared of Charge of Negligence Private Charles McClure. who was charged with neglect of duty in allowing a prisoner to escape while under his charge, was acquitted by the court martial that investigated the case. It was sljown at the trial tha.t the prisoner, who was being guarded by Mc- Clure. locked the sentry in a ballway and then jumped out of a window in the second story of the house.

West ernhagen, a graduate of the 1903 class of the St. College, of Law, and at present as a bookkeeper by the Northwestern Newspaper union. ' The young woman who acoempanied Mr. ..Westernhagen as his bride was Miss C Mayme G. • Hylarid, a ' pretty nineteen-year-old , Minneapolis i stenog raphers/who had been as successful in keepingthe marriage from her family arid -ffieTftis-as had Mr. Westernhagen. I j The marriage of Mr. Westernhagen and Miss Hyland took place two weeks ago, when the couple were quietly mar ried by Judge Orr, after meeting in his chambers by appointment at 6 o'clock one evening. ? The license had heen secretly secured in Minneapolis and every effort was made to keep the matter quiet. Just what reasons there were for secrecy has not been explain ed, as the young man's family had known of his intentions for several months, . and it • was stated last night that there was no objection on the part of Miss Hyland's family. Kept in the Dark Following the marriage, however, Westernhagen continued to live at his home on the West side, and his wife continued her residence in Minneapo lis. Not even their most intimate friends were let into the secret, and none of the relatives of either party knew anything of the marriage until the announcement made just previous to the couple's departure for Chicago last night. . MissHyland is said to be one of the prettiest girls in Minneapolis, and the announcement of her marriage will come as a great surprise in the circle in which she moved. Mr. Western hagen is well known in St. Paul, espe cially on the West side, where he is very popular and where he has lived for many years. A. close friend of Mr. Westernhagen said last night that the couple would visit Chicago and possibly St. Louis, but would return to St. Paul to make their home. REFUSES HOSPITAL AND IS TAKEN TO STATION Sick Woman, Said to Be Addicted to Drugs, Removed From* Saloon Word was sent yesterday morning to the city hospital that Marie Ryan, : aged twenty-eight, was seriously ill in the "lunch room" of a saloon near Jackson and Eighth streets, and a re quest was made ihat she be taken to the hospital. But on the arrival of one of the assistant city physicians the woman refused to go to the hospital, and the physician lacked authority to remove her against her will. She was taken later to the central polica station, where she passed the night. Her condition was said to be due partly to illness and partly to the habitual use of drugs. ALIENS HOT AFTER THE RIGHT TO VOTE Rush for Naturalization Papers Starts and Court Holds Evening Session The rush for naturalization papers by aliens who desire to qualify as vot ers at the coming fall election has be gun. A special term of court was held by Judge Jaggard last evening at which twenty -or more foreigners ap peared and swore allegiance to the American -flag. -A dozen or more were cared for yesterday afternoon, and from now on special arrangements will be made to care for all who desire to qualify. The law requires that the final pa pers must be taken out at least ninety days before election, and the rush Is expected to continue from now on un til Aug. 8, which will be the last date upon which aliens may qualify and be able to vote at -the November election. SECURITIES IN SINKING FUND ARE EXAMINED That of Water Board Contains $659,- 850 City and County Bonds The city sinking fund commission, consisting of the mayor, the comptroller ancj the treasurer, made yesterday its quarterly examination of the securities in the water board sinking fund and the general sinking fund. The last part of the task was ac complished quickly; there were no se curities to examine in the general fund. But in the water board fund a satisfactory check was made of St. Paul city "bonds and Ramsey county bonds to the total value of $659,850. Some of the city of St. Paul bonds* pay 3% per cent Interest per annum; oth ers pay 4 per I cent. The park loan bonds bear 4 per cent also, and the county bonds .4% per cent.

SAYS MONTANA 18 2 SAFE FOR PARKER W. G. Conrad, of Great Fa!!s, Declares Democrats Are Sure to Carry State "Montana may be counted on to give her electoral vote to Judge Parker, and the Democratic state ticket, to be .nominated within the next few weeks," said W. G. Conrad, of Great Falls, Mont., who with his wife and daugh ters is at the Ryan en route to Mon tana from the St. Louis national Dem ocratic convention. - Mr. Conrad was a delegate at large to the national convention, and is a prospective candidate for the United States senate to succeed Senator Paris Gibson at the session of the Montana legislature next winter. He is inter ested in several banks, is a large prop erty owner in the state and has fianan cial interests in eighteen of the twenty seven counties of his state. His home city is also the home town of Senator Gibson, and if Senator Gib son is not elected Conrad is geograph ically situated to draw a large support. Senator Clark's home is at Butte, in the other end of the state, and he is regarded as a representative of the mining interests, while Conrad is en gaged in banking, ranching, lumber ing and mercantile industries. "Our delegation was for Judge Par ker," the big Montanan said last night. "I regard hirn^as a fine man personally and his nomination is doubtless a hap py solution of a vexing problem. We are well united and the West, I believe, will take kindly to the candidacy of the New Yorker. Mr. Bryan carried Mon tana four years ago by a safe margin and I have every reason to think that Parker will do as well. , Will Re-elect Gov. Toole "Montana Democrats will renominate —and will re-elect —Gov. J. K. Toole. The convention will be held in August and the governor has practically no opposition in his party, while he al ways gets thousands of Republican votes. We are sure to eiect the gov ernor and have Teason to think that we will haAe the legislature as well. If the legislature is Democratic I shall probably be a candidate for the United States senate. Senator Gibson cannot be re-elected, and as he is from the same city that I call home I have no hesitancy in getting into the field. Senator Clark is from the western end of the state and our party will natu rally be conceded the other position in the upper house. "Montana is unusually prosperous. Wool is bringing big prices and we look for a good figure for our mutton and beef this fall. Rains have beeen sufficient, too, to insure a good yield of wheat in the valleys. Some great ir rigation plants are under way in our state and I am at the head of one some sixty-five miles .north of Great Falls, which, if it turns out right, will water a great tract to be devoted to the raising of sugar beets. We are go ing to erect a big beet sugar factory there which will employ a great many men. This is the biggest irrigation plant in the world, and its future will be watched by experts the entire coun try over." TO SAVE LIVE STOCK Board Discusses Diseases and Preventive Measures Dr. S. N. Ward, secretary of the live stock sanitary board, at the quarterly meeting of the board yesterday at the state capitol, presented an exhaustive re port of his investigations for the quar ter. The report covers tuberculosis, glanders and hog cholera, the three dis eases that most unfavorably affect the stock raising industry in the state. Referring to tuberculosis troubles, Dr. Ward says that education looking to a pure milk supply is being pushed and copies of the ordinances for the Twin Cities are being put into effect in a num ber of the villages of the state. Hog cholera is increasing. It is now recognized that the disease is contracted through the digestive tracts, and in de termining the cause of the disease an in vestigation of the food supply is first made. The secretary recommends active work in suppressing the disease for the good name of the state hog market. # As to glanders in horses, the report says that the legislative act providing re imbursement to owners of glandered horses has resulted in bringing cases be fore the proper authorities. There is not the same tendency now to evade the law as formerly. During the quarter 101 horses of a total of 403 inspected have been killed. As to hog cholera no oases have been reported except from counties affected last year. It is pointed out that the en forcement of health measures by town ship officers is the most effective method of ridding the state of the cholera, and threats are made that examples will be made of persons refusing to comply with the law. The state board did little but routine business, beyond a discussion of and the acceptance of the executive officer's re port. President J. J. Furlong presided at the meeting and all the members of the board were present. BUCKMAN AND VOLSTEAD SEEK RENOMINATION Two of Minnesota's Republican Congress men Would Do State More Service Two Republican congressmen in Min nesota districts yesterday filed official no tice of their intention to be candidates for the Republican nomination for re-elec tion with the secretary of state. C. B. Buckman, of Little Falls, asked that his name be placed on the official ballot as a "Republican candidate for con gress in the primary election to be held Sept. 20. and Andrew J. Volstead, of Granite Falls, asked a similar honor for the Seventh district. Buckman has a lively opponent for the nomination in the person of A. F. Foster, of Ljtehfield. but so far no one has ap peared to contest the field with Volstead. Dr. Werner Hemstead. of Brainerd. filed yesterday as a Democratic candidate for the state senate in the Forty-eighth sena torial district. It is unlikely that he -will have' opposition for the nomination. Moulder Will Oppose Wright. M. G. Moulder, president of the village board of White Bear, filed with the coun ty auditor yesterday as a Republican can didate for county commissioner from Dis trict No. 2. The district is at present rep resented by Commissioner Wright, of North St. Paul, who is a candidate for re noiniuation. —This store wiii dose at 1 o'clock today— Tra before that hour and thus emphasize your approval of our employes' Saturday half holiday , : ' '■', .; St. Paul's Silk Selling Store. _ f l; f '?'

"We have taken this action." said an officer of the association yesterday, "because the regular police have said that they would not arrest riders without licenses so long as our own special policemen failed to make ar rests. The responsibility hereafter will lie with the regular police. It's up to them to do their ditty. "As a result of failure to enforce the law we have sold only 4,000 bicy cle tags this season and have received only $2,000 from that source. "But in Minneapolis, where nobody can use the paths unless his machine is tagged, no less than 16,000 tags have been sold. At the same rate as is charged here, Minneapolis has obtain ed $8,000 for maintaining and repairing its sidepath system." ATTORNEY SECURES PAY FOR SERVICES Niemans Must Give $110 of Their Award to Their Lawyer Judge Jaggard yesterday allowed At torney Herbert P. Keller the sum of $110 as fees for services rendered by him while acting as attorney for Anna W. Nieman, who appealed from the award made by the Soo commissioners in the condemnation of her property on Patridge street. The original attorney in the case was B. H. Schriber, but when the second petition was prepared Attorney Keller was retained in the place of Attorney Schriber. Finally a third petition was prepared, in which Fred LL Mc- Ghee appeared as attorney. VVh^n Mr. Keller demanded his fees ft was claimed that he had agreed to accept half of any amount received in excess of $4,000. but this Mr. Keller denied, and a lien was filed against the award. Judge Jaggard heard the arguments yesterday and held that Mr. Keller was entitled to his fees, and a settle ment was made whereby the attorney agreed to accept $110. DONAHOWER SURPRISES THE OFFICESEEKERS Attorney General Names F. N. Dick son to Succeed C. W. Somerby Attorney General "W. J. Donahower yesterday surprised the politicians when he announced the appointment of Frederick N. Dickson as first as sistant attorney general for the unex pired term of Charles W. Somerby, re signed. The appointment of Dickson was scarcely expected, as several candi dates had been hard after the place and his name had not been publicly mentioned in connection with the va cancy. It is understood that Dickson's appointment was non-political and based on his knowledge of trespass law. There are a number of cases against timber trespassers pending in the attorney general's office, and Dick .son, who is a former assistant United States district attorney, has had expe rience with cases of this character. He has an office in the Globe building, but will give his entire time to the duties of his new place until the first of the year, when Donahower's successor takes office.

Pomeroy. Pomeroy, who keeps a livery stable, asserted that on July 2 young Thomas hired a saddle horse with which to go to Como park. He was to return the same afternoon. When the horse had been absent a week Pomeroy recalled that ThomaH had told him some months before that his home was near Prescott, Wis. The liveryman, acting on this recollection, telegraphed to a Wisconsin sherilT. The sheriff sent a deputy to a farm near Prescott, where Thomas w;t* found. When the deputy wanted to buy a good saddle horse Thomas ad mitted that he had a saddle horse, but it was too good—he couldn't think of selling H. The horse looked so much like the animal described in Mr. Pomeroy'a telegram that Thomas left the farm with the deputy. This officer was in formed that the young man had boast ed to his friends that he was coming back on the Fourth "with a cracker jack horse." He had come accordingly. In court yesterday the young farm er did not appear to understand his situation. He said he intended to "bring the horse back after a while." The case was continued until Monday that the prisoner and his attorney might agree upon a plea.
