jV A'' fi ii I The contest over the office of treasurer of Morrison couitty be­ tween F. X. Lafond and Jos. L. Meyers has been dismissed, Mr. La Fond withdrawing, and Jos. L. Meyers will continue to serve as treasurer until the end of this ternj. 'Upon the official canvas It ap­ peared that Mr. Meyers had a ma­ jority of 23 votes over Mr. LaFond. Irregularities in voting: were re­ ported from various towns and up­ on this Mr. LaFond based hisuction, and the evidence, so far as taken, certainly warranted Mr. LaFond's action. In the recount Mr. LaFond gained 12 votes and Mr. Meyers but 1, but the evidence token in the con­ test showed that In Pike Creek 50 votes were cast illegally in Swan Itiver. 53 Two Rivers 4(5 Agram, 6, iind several in IMerz. The irregu­ larity claimed was that people who could not read the Knglish language were votfd without taking an oath to the effect of such inability, and that certain men were allowed to mark more ballots than prescribed by the law.

Wilcox, the leader of the late royalist insurrection in Hawaii, seems to be a ohronio revolutionist, one of those enterprising adventurers who are continually plotting sedition against the prevailing government, whatever it may be. He has stood on all sides of all questions in Hawaii and has participat­ ed in several abortive revolutions, the last of which was the most pretentious. Wilcox is a native of Hawaii and is about 50 years old. He was the especial protege of King Kalakaua and was sent by that monarch to the Royal Military institute at Turin, Italy, where he spent five years. He returned to Honolulu with an Italian bride, Miss Jina Sobrero, the daughter of an Italian army officer. Kalakaua soon found the young military gim enius an expensive luxury and shipped to San Francisco ...

NO BLBBB1NO. Mrs. Hawkinton Withholds It From tbc House of Flore*. On Wednesday evening prof. N. D. Flares and Miss Olivia Hawkinson were married and immediately set up housekeeping. Friday Mrs. Hawkinson, the mother of the bride learned of the marriage and next morning arose at 2 o'clock and drove to town. Not to give the happy ctmple the usual parental blessing, howeyer, but about break­ fast time she lit upon the house of Floves like a thousand of brick and proceeded to give the Professor and his bride a rich, brown roast. She accompanied it with the best Eng­ lish she could command and wound up by telling her daughter to get ready and go with her to the home of the family in Elm Dal6. The bride did not obey and the mother started out to consult an attorney about the matter, but it is hardly probable that anything can be done, as the girl is of age. Prof, and Mrs. Flores will then be left In peace and will probably manage to do without mamma's blessing. Mrs. Hawkinson states that...

Eifght Clubs For Next Year'i National League Circuit. LOSING CITIES' POOH PATRONAGE. Cajrlor Says the New league Will Probably Consist of the Boston, Ne-w York, Phila­ delphia, Brooklyn, Baltimore, Pittsburg, Chicago and Cleveland Clubs. Every sign of the times points to a re­ duction of tho National league circuit to eight clubs and eight cities. That con­ summation may bo looked for in good time without much chance of disappoint ment, and let ito one be surprised to find moh a state of affairs at the beginning of next season. But such a curtailment of the National league circuit vould not fnean a reduction of clubs, for another league or association would spring up out of the trimming. Gardeners often "trim" a tree or a vine in order to make it spread out. Such is the purpose of those who are talking about a return of the National league to the old eight club cirouit. The design Is to build up around the retiring olubs a new association, something on the order of the old American ...

VOL. 2H. WEARING THE END. Congress Enters Upon th© Last Week of Its Le­ gal Existence. USUAL CRUSH HAS BEGUN. Many Exciting Scenes Prom­ ised in the Battle for Precedence. "WASHINGTON, Feb. 25.—The house hasentered upon the last week of ita session and the usual crush which char­ acterizes the closing, hours of every ses­ sion of congress has begun. Under the rules the last six days of every session are suspension days and members recog­ nized may-call up bills and have them acted on under suspension of the rules. There are 881 public bills on the calen­ dar, 317 of which must be considered in committee of the whole and 114 on the regular calendar. In addition to these there are over 500 bills on the private calendar. Of course only a very insig­ nificant percentage of these bills can be passed, but the press for precedence will be terrific and Many Exciting Scenes are almost sure to occur. It is quite probable th*t several night sessions will be heldanditis almost certain that cong...

LOUIS, Feb. 28.—Fred Young, a former business man of Minneapolis, whom rumor connects with the Ging murder case, was arrested here charged with passing a fraudulent check on hit landlady, Mrs. Nevins. He said that he had made out the check in question and got it cashed through Mrs. Nevins. had an account at the St. Anthonj Falls National bank in Minneapolii when he left that city recently, and supposed, when he drew the oheck, that there was enough left to cover it. The prisoner said knew Harry Hayward well, being quit* intimate with him, and through him be came acquainted with Miss Ging Young, however, denied emphatically that he had any connection with the murder, or that he had any previotu knowledge of the crime.

Defendant In the Hayward Case on the Stand in His Own Behalf. ADRY AND BLIXT UNTRUTHFUL. Testimony of the State's Lead ing Witnesses Declared Wholly False. HIS RELATIONS WITH MISS GING, Socially and in a Business Way, Cone Into With Much Detail. MINNBAPOLIS, Feb. 22.—Harry Hay ward, the mull aceusad of plotting tlie most co l-Koadtd murder of modern times, took t'ie and his own de­ fense, find told in a ramblig fashion of his relations with the murdered woman, Catherine Ging. He admitted that he had been a gam­ bler for years, and his general bearing and anxiety for quick results did not be­ lie the admission. He assumed a non­ chalant manner and appeared insuffer­ ably bored at many of the questions put to bitn by, his attorney. His attitude was a good deal like that of a wealthy capitalist forced by a subpoena to testify to some trivial matter before a police court. He did not remember a great d«al. For example, the first time Miss Ging gave him poney to gamble with, he was not su...

Defense Springs Another Sur­ prise Regarding That "Third Man." MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 27.—As a witness Harry Hayward improves with age. Attorney Hall had him all to himself until 4 p. m. and failed to embarrass that excursive individual as much as his own attorney did on direct examination. The witness appeared to much better advantage than on the previous day, and answered questions as though he bad some idea of what he was talking about, a condition of mind which did not affect his utterances on Monday. Mr. Hall harped on several strings in the course of the day, the paying over of the money in the Oneida block, the witness knowledge of the safety vault, Waterman's visit to Miss Ging, witness' gambling operations, loans of money, the holdup and many other things. Hayward maintained a good front throughout, and generally heeded Judge ...

SSSM'. COURT SAYS NO. "testimony Regarding Adrian Hay ward's Sanity Again Ruled Out. NO FOUNDATION WAS •LAID. Witness Wilson Testifies That the Defense Tried to Bribe Him. MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 28.—It was a day of odds and ends in the Hay ward trial. In the matter of ends the insanity plea, which the defense has urged so persist­ ently in the ease of Adry Hay ward, came to an end untimely and inglori ously. Mr. Erwin clnng to his pet theory of making Adry ont a lunatic without first laying a foundation with great pertinacity, and the court's pa­ tience was severely taxed dozens of times. Mr. Erwin's attempts to introduce testimony and depositions tending to prove Adry's insanity at times bordered on the ludicrous. The court ruled that hej had laid no proper foundation for such testimony, and that time and cir­ cumstances must be distinctly stated before any consideration could be given to it. After bringing the matter up in several different ways and meeting with repeated rebuffs, the T...

From Wednesday's Dally. PROBUUA MURDER. A Polish Wedding at Elm Dale Winds Up in a Row. Andrew Fatally Lun l2j uza Probably ured—The Sheriff Investigat­ ing Word was brought to the city Tuesday night of a row which oc­ curred at a Polish wedding in the town of Elm Dale about 1:80 Tues­ day morning. A man nnmed An­ drew Kunza was probably fatally injured and his son, a young man of 18, quite badly injured. It seems that a wedding was given at the home of Mr. Macia in that town on Monday night and that on the same evening a dance was given at Mr. Ohutta's place across the road. At a late hour the Ohutta crowd got pretty full of beer and went over to Macia's, where they at­ tempted to clean out the wedding. They were driven away, however, but in this scrimmage young Kunza was smashed on the side of the head witn a rock, injuring him severely. Sometime later one of the party went out doors and found Andrew Kunza on the ground in a pool of blood senseless. He had been struck on the head ...

Mr. Nye has been ill for several days, but believes himself strong enough for the heavy task imposed upon him as public prosecutor.
