WEAVING THE WEB. on Frank Learned in Court Grand Laroeny—Beverly Trial Dif The case of the state against Frank L. Learned for grand laroeny was called by Justice Holdridge at the court house at 9 a. m. to-day and the prosecu tion begun its casfe. C. J. Porter ap peared for the defense. Geo. H. Irish, the complaining wit ness, was called and his testimony was substantially as has been given in THE DAILY LEADER in regard to tbe case. Learned, who is a brother-in-law of Mr. Irish, since his return to tbe city a week or so before the robbery, had staid quite cloeely about Mr. Irish's house and Sunday forenoon worked with Mr. Irish making out bis reports at the sec retary where Mr. Irish kept his pocket book containing tbe money, draft and notes in question. In tbe evening Mr. Irish took out the pocketbook and mended a torn bill, Learned assisting him, and then replaced the bill and laid the pocketbook in the secretary. He shut the latter up without locking it, meaning to do so before he went to bed, but forgetting. About half-past seven, Learned went down town and later on, about nine or half past nin«, oame back after Mr. Irish had gone to bed. He pretended to be sick and looked around for medioine in the house afterwards going out and not returning. Mr. Irish got up shortly after to see what was the matter with him and found his pocketbook gone. He then gave the alarm, but Learned, who had made arrangements, before his return to tbe house, with Beverly to get a livery rig ready, had with the latter departed for Egan. Beverly, who was next put on the witness stand, then told of their flight to Egan, thence by rail to Sioux Falls* thence across the oountry to Jasper where they took the Sioux City and Northern into Sioux City Monday night/ He denies that he knew that Learned had taken the money. When Learned first made arrangements with him to get a rig Sunday evening, it was simply to take a ride out to Lake Her man, but when they got in Learned drove to Egan. At Sioux City Learned gave bim the money to buy the new suit of clothea and also bought a suit for himself. Sheriff Fox testified to following the fugitives in nearly tbe same course they took and finding them in the hands of the Sioux City polios. In conversation with Learned, the latter said he had been given $150 by a "man to leave Mad ison, but he knew nothing about tbe paper claimed to have been taken from Mr. Irish. The defense objected to Mr. Fox stating what the police said they found on Learned's person when they searched him at time of arrest, and the prosecution here ordered Constable Jones of Sioux City telegraphed for. Constable Mead next testified to Learned telling him that he received fl50 from Beverly with which to come to Sioux City, that be had given Nina Career or Govers 120 before leaving Madison, had also bought a suit of clothes for himself, and other things. Here the examination was abruptly closed awaiting the arrival of tbe Sioux City officer, and an adjournment taken until 9 o'clock Mondey morning. Learn ed appears much more at ease to-day than laBt evening when he was very nervous and flighty. He wears an air of reckless abandon which would seem to indicate that be intends to bluff the game or foul the nest, though the pros ecution, by the time it gets in Constable Jones' evidence, will no doubt show quite conclusively where an amount of money just about equal to that lost by Mr. Irish, has been disposed of by Learned.

A Correspondent Tells What It was Far and Who Took Part—Women Ntfc Always Prohibition U ranks H. The question is often asked, "Why don't the W. C. T. U. do something?" and those who make this inquiry always mean, "why don't they wage an open and aggressive warfare against the saloon, teeming to feel that there is no reason for such an organization as the W. C. T. U. unless it is constantly flight ing the liquor traffic. Now while it is no doubt true that every white ribboner realizes as fully aa do these critics the evil influenoe of the saloon, still few deem it their mission to attempt to per form the duties that devolve upon city officials and if the Madison union is not at present doing anything towards dos ing up saloons, it is by no means idle, but is working along other lines. Yesterday a meeting for girls waa held which fifty or more girls attended. Mrs. Blaokman, the superintendent of social purity, planned this meeting and at her request the president of local union acted as chairman. After brief devotional exercises the chairman stated the object \f the meeting and introduc ed Mrs. Blackman who spoke on the subject, "The girls 1 like," and we learn ed that the one she liked waa not always the one that moat people liked tbe best, but that her sympathy and loving affection went out towards the girl that is tempted, and in suoh she felt a deep interest and a longing to help. In earnest words ahe appealed to every girl to be true to her better self. Miss Pryne then read a most interest ing paper on "My ideal girl," and this carefully prepared and well read paper will doubtless lead many of the gi.ls who listened with suoh thoughtful at tention u aim at a higher standard of living. Mrs. Ewart then spoke about "Girls and mothers," in the pleasing manner so natural to her and her helpful words will long be remembered by many a girl, and will no doubt inspire her to be orave in daring to do right long after Mrs. Ewart has gone from our midst. The beauti ful duet so well sung by Mrs. Trow and Mrs. Hubbeli was a fitting close to ^he meeting. Newsboy—Paper, sir? Solemn Looking Citisen--My boy, I would like to oblige can't read.

ChM H*ien Reporta Onat AethrHjr Among Counterfeiter*. WASHINGTON, Nov. ^3.—William P. Haeen, the chief of the secret service of the treasury department, in his annual report shows that during the year the total number of arrests made was 679, nearly all of which were for violations of the statutes relating to counterfeit ing United States money. Of those ar rested about 300 were either convicted or plead guilty, and 129 are now await ing the action of grand juries. The fines collected amounted to $5,907. The amount of altered or counterfeit notes captured dnring the year was $21,300 coins, $10,756. There were also cap tured 134 plates from which counter feit notes had been printed 33 dies, 156 moulds and a large quantity of miscel laneous matter, consisting of tools, etc. Chief Hazen states that the events of the last year furnished evidence of Great Activity Among Counterfeiter*, the number of arrests reported for counterfeiting both notes and ooins largely exceeding that of any previous year in tbe history of the service. In commenting upon the large number of counterfeit notes discovered. Chief Ha zen saya '•The art of photo-lithography, al though seemingly in its infancy, has made it comparatively easy to imitate the most skillfully engraved designs of our note?, so that the danger from this source is not only very grave, but in creasing, and to meat these condition* the designs and execution of govern ment B3tes should be such as would make their reproduction most difficult. On safeguard still remaining, how ever, is the secret process of making distinctive paper." Will Study Surgery. ST.

WASHINGTON, NOV. 28.—Citizens who apply to the fish commission for gold fish will be doomed to disappointment in the future. The commission has found it necessary to curtail the gener ous and gratuitous distribution of those fish which has come during the past five years to be a large part of the institution. In the future gold fish will be furnished only to state commissions, parks and for public use generally, and will not be given to private applicants. Tried to Steal French Gnn patterns. PARIS, NOV. 23.—The Figaro says: An attempt has been made to steal the patterns of the new Deport gun, which were shipped in padlocked cases to Calais and Bourges by the minister of ,war.

Ska la Said to Be Willing to Glre Japan •17S,000,000 to Qalt. WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 In accord ance with a suggestion of Japan, the state department has notified Minister Dunn at Tokio and Mr.Denby at Pekin, to transmit such direct offer as China may wish to make to Japan. As the cable directions were sent Tuesday, sufficient time has not yet elapsed to determine whether China will consent to make an offer direct and definite, as Japan insists must be done. The Chinese legation here is not notified as to what course its government will take. An Associated Press cable from Japan states, however, that China has intim ated her willingness to pay an indem nity of lOO.O'JO.OOO taels, and in addi dition pay all the war expenses incurred by Japan. As the war expenses reach 150,000,000, the total offer of Chinn would be 250,000,000 taels. The tael is the Chinese silver coin, worth about 75 cents at tho present exchange, so that the whole payment would be approxi mately $175,000,000 American money. Amount B*garJetl a* Large, The amount is regarded here as quite large ana it is believed arrangements between the two nations could 1 ef fected on the terms providing for a smaller war indemnity. Diplomats here say that under ordinary circum stances, it would take some time for China to formally present its offer to Minister Denby, but owing to the fact that the Japanese are now at the walls of Port Arthur, about to make the last blow at China's greatest fortress, it is anticipated that China may hurry the negotiations to a conclusion. It is ex pected that Minister Donby will trans mit the offer by telegraph to Tien Tsin and Shanghai, and thence by eablo to Yokohama. The understanding is that China and Japan will pay the expenses of the American ministers, incident to the negotiations. The advance on Port Arthur is re garded as having an important bearing on the peace negotiations. Lieutenant Miyoka, naval attache of the Japanese legation here, says the advauce move ment has been most cautious, as the ground for 40 miles around Port Arthur has been found fairly alive with pow der mines connected with electric wires to Port Arthur. Three days ago tin* Japnnesd were within a day's inarch of the fortress, but it was necessary to send ahead small scouting parties to pick a route away from the mines and electric wires. The regular roads could not be used for the artillery, as it would have been blown up, and, accordingly, the big guas havo had to be moved into circuitous routes through woods and morasses. It is regarded as likely this cautious march will have been com pleted, and the Japanese legation is hourly expecting word that the decisive blow has been struck, though a long siege may be necessary, as the frotress has one of the strongest defenses of modern times. It is believed that a Japanese success would quickly close the peace negotia tions, but a repulse would impel China to hold off still further. General Booth in Chicago^ .CHICAGO, NOV. 23.—General Booth of the Salvation Army arrived in Chicago early in the morning, and after a few hours' rest, was tendered a reception by the Chicago Press club. He made a lengthy address, expressing pleasure at the receptions he has received in the Eastern cities. General Booth will re main in Chicago until the middle of next week, and elaborate preparations have been made by the Salvation Army for his various public appearances. Kicked in the Wrong Uoo*. ST.
