ST. JOSEPH DAIL.Y GAZETTE-HE R ALD, FRIDAY, MARCH S. 1901. 1POWBEEL a veir under the bounty law. The bounty expires in 1908, and If the trust can put out 10,000,000 tons of manufactured product in that period it will cost the Canadian taxpayers $10,000,000 in cash. The situation is thus summed up: With the Morgan-Rockefeller trust con- trolliag the iron and steel of the Atlan tic seaboard, with Hill and Rockefeller controlling the coal of the Crows Nest Pass, with the same combination directing the Midland, the "9oo" and the Nanaimo (B. C.) enterprises, the annexation of Canada's industries will be practically complete. and Canada henceforth a mere annex of the American syndicate. These subjects will come prominently to the front during the coming month. and indications of the policy of the gov ernment are sure to be elicited by the discussions in the railway and private bills committees of the House, where all such questions must be thoroughly sifted. For a third of a century American housewives have found Dr. Price's Baking Powder invariably a guarantee of light, sweet, pure and wholesome food.

Baking powders made from alum and other harsh, caustic acids are lower in price, but inferior in work and injurious to the stomach. LIBRARY IS NOW ASSURED ANDREW CARNEGIE'S GIFT Will BE $25,000. Andrew Carnegie will give $23,000 for the erection of a free public library building in South St. Joseph. John Donovan, Jr., will donate one block of ground it) South St. Joseph upon which the building will be erected. As soon as the conditions of the gift are ac cepted ty tht: city council the work of building will commence. Mr. Donovan .arrived In the city this morning, after visiting Mr. Carnegie in New York City. The purpose of his visit was to present plans for the build ing to Mr. Carnegie, who had already placed himself on record as willing to derate I15,00 for the purpose. The plans taken to New York by Mr. Donovan wore drawn by E. J. Kckel, the architect and to follow them would involve an expense of $10,000 additional to the $16,000 offered by Mr. Carnegie. When Mr. Donovan called upon the philanthropist and represented to him the additional expense that would be attached, providing a suitable building were put up, Mr. Carnegie did not hesitate to offer '$19,000 more. The conditions exacted were that the city would expend annuully $J,500 for the maintenance of the library. Mr. Donovan will sub mit the proposition to the city council at the next meeting of that body and there is r.o doubt that the conditions named wiil be accepted. Will Be Modern. The building will be one of the most n-cdern edifices of its kind in the "West, and will greatly add to the appearance of South St. Joseph. The tract of land d mated by Mr. Donovan covers an en tire block and lies just south of Illinois avenue, near the street railway transfer niiint for the lake. The tract measure 260 bv 4W feet, and is centrally located The n w building will also be used for a night school, and rooms will be set apart for a workingmen's club. In speaking of this club and the reading . rooms they would have access to, Mr. Donovan said this morning: There are many men and young boys who get out from work about 5 or 6 o'clock in the evering. From that time vintil the next morning they have nothing to occupy their attention and the workingmen's club and the reading rooms will give them an opportunity to Improve their minds, instead of spend ing the time in idleness." The news of the double gift from Mr. Carncyie and Mr. Donovan spread throughout South St. Joseph this morning. Citizens are jubilant over the stroke of good fortune. e.r portion of the day was taken up in arguing this case before the jury. The trouble between Anderson and Russell is said to have taken place near Frazer, Mo., June 23. last. The two families had had a law suit, Which was won by the Russeils. It is alleged that on the day of the difficulty between the principals in the ease, they met on the road and Anderson threatened to cut Ruesell with a knife. Kussell went af ter a warrant for the arrest of Anderson, when he was met by the latter, who stabbed him In the neck and side. M. George Daniel, the native of Kur- destan. who was bound over to the criminal court some time ago for assault and battery on Pearl Doles, his private secretary, was yesterday in dicted by the grand jury for attempted criminal assault. He pleaded not guilty to the charge and his trial was set for March 11. He was taken to the workhouse in default of bond of $750. The charge of assault and battery against him was dismissed by the prosecuting attorney. Roy Frogge and Jesse Cook pleaded not guilty to the charge of murder In the first degree and their trial was set for April 1. William Blagg and Otis E. Wright will be tried for robbery March 18. The case of the State against Fred Pryor, on the charges of assault with Intent to kill and petty larceny, will be tried March 18. A motion for a new trial and for arrest of judgment has been filed by the defendant in the case of the State against Isaac Jenkins, who was found guilty of assault and battery. JUDGES AGREE UPON DATES REGISTRATION P0R CITY ELECTION MARCH 22 AND 23. Friday and Saturday, March 22 and 23, have been practically agreed upon by the county court as the time for the registration for the city election to be held April 2, although no official order to that effect has been made. The question will be definitely decided this week, as the law provides that no tice for all special and municipal elections shall be published for ten days, twenty days in advance of the election. This leaves the court but little time to act. Another matter that the court will have to take under consideration is the date of the registration and the time for holding the special election for the pur pese of submitting to the voters of the county the proposition to authorize the issuing of $100,000 worth of bonds for building a new jail. Several days ago a petition signed by-over 100 of the prominent citizens and taxpayers of the city was presented to the court by Huston Powers, ex-deputy sheriff, asking the court to order a spe cial election for the purpose above nam- TOOK OUT MAN'S STOMACH Rarest of Surgical Operations Success fully Performed. NEW YORK, March ".Lewis J. Mc-Kenna, a clerk in an insurance company, is in St. Luke's hospital recovering from a surgical operation, one of the rarest known to modern science. The operation is known as gastro-anterostomy, and consists of removing the patient's stomach, cutting away the pylorus and several malignant growths in Its vicinity, and restoring the stomach to its former place. McKenna was resting easy last night and the physicians say that, if the present improvement continues, he will be up In a week, jviclvenna compiamea some months ago of severe pains in his stomach, and was troubled with insomnia. Altogether his symptoms suggested severe indigestion. A tube inserted through his oesophagus into his stomach showed a total disappearance of all acids and a destruction of the pepsin, making digestion impossible. Food taken into the stomach was taken away seventeen hours later in practically the same con dition as before. The condition called for an examination, which disclosed a tumor as big as a hen's egg and a sys tematic degeneration of the pancreas. The patient was thereupon prepared for the operation. The vertical incision about five inches long was made in the abdomen, and through the growth the exposed pylorus showing a tumor out side of the stomach. An incision was then made in the stomach and inside was found a cancerous growth the size of a large orange. The point where the incision was made at the pylorus is the exit of the stomach into the intestines, the other opening being the entrance through the oesophagus. The stomach was cut away from the Intestines and the organ was lifted completely out of its place and laid on a cushion of antiseptic cloths placed on the patient's chest. Then the doctors cut away the tumor and cut off the pylorus, the other malignant growth being also thoroughly cut away. The stomach was then put back in its accustomed place, having been joined to the intestines with silk sutures. But little blood was apparent through out the whole operation, which lasted one hour and fifteen minutes. The pa tient rallied at once, and it was seen that the operation was a success.

An inter- j esting account of successful experiments li. wireless telegraphy is contained in reports received at the State Department from Consul George W. Roosevelt at Brussels, Belgium. The experiments j were conducted by Emile Guarinl, the inventor of an automatic repeater. He established the futility of attempting to send messages over a disc of twenty-five miles without the aid of captive balloons or masts. He then turned all his atten tion toward the transmission of the elec tric rays by relays, and in this It is stated was entirely successful. He tele graphed from a station on top of a the members of this body should deem structure In Brussels to one on the tow er of St. Komoant cnurcn in luaunco. Numerous messages were received and It necessary to purchase a new site not more than $8,000 is to be expended for that purpose. When the proposition . to vote bonds for the new jail was before the people at the last general election. an option on the property at the northeast corner of Fourth and Robidoux streets was given the county court, the price being $S,0o0. It is claimed that there is some show of success for the bond proposition at this time, for the reason that the farm ers. who voted so unanimously against it last fall, are now willing to vote for the bonds and that there is always a better show for the success of a bond proposition at a special election than at a treneral election. Those w-ho favor the transmitted with great distinctness and two messages were received at a time when communication with the ground from the transmitter had been interrupted. This was the first instance on record where wireless messages were exchanged between two large cities with the antennes placed on high monuments. and without the help of captive balloons or kites. The rays arriving at Mal'.nes traversed several towns over chimneys, monuments, woods and other obstacles, which tend to stop or weaken the electric radiations. Mr. Guarinis system involves the method used in ordinary electric teleg- building of a new jail are confident that raphy of relays and translators, the ap HE CALLED HARL A JACKASS The Accused Replies in Kind, Roasting Mike Moran. Habitues of the criminal court were entertained this morning for a few moments by a lively tilt between Attorneys M. G. Moran and T. W. Harl, who became quite personal in their arguments before the jury in the case of the State gainst Charles Anderson, charged with cutting John E. Russell. Moran, in the course of his address to the jury, stated that Harl, who was assisting the prosecution, did not pretend to know any law and had never been accused of being a lawyer. Ills praying remiuueu him of a jackass. Harl replied by saying that Moran had told his jackass story during the trial of every one of the three cases in which he haJ been employed since commencing the practice of law in St. Jo-Feph. He said that he never noticed Moran and didn't even speak to him, as he refused to have anything to do with people of that character. This is not the first time the two attorneys have clashed in the trial of cases. The great- EIRE DAMAGES BRIDGE. MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 7.

The county court will meet today or tomorrow as a board of health and will raise the quarantine, which has been in force at the jail for over a month. It will be necessary to destroy all of the furniture and fixtures in the interior of the jail. All of the bedding and mattresses will be burned and the jail will be thoroughly fumigated. While this is being done the prisoners will be placed in the Jail office and guarded until the interior of the county prison has been thoroughly cleansed. . . . .I . i paratus at mtermeuiuie siuuuua c-- ing the message automatically as received.

Al fred Parsons, under arrest here on the charge of atempting to obtain money from President Hadley of Yale, by means of a fraudulent check on the Chemical Bank of New York, has been identified as the same man, who some time ago, secured $200 from a bank in New York on a worthless check, on the indorsement from the president of Co lumbia University. To President Hadley, Parsons represented himself as Lord Rosse of Birr Castle. Ireland. The police here now believe that Parsons is, in reality, Sidney Lascelles, the bogus Lord Beresford who served a term in the Georgia State prison. Police Captain Cowles said: "I received word from Rockvill this morning that our man answers the description of Sidney Lascelles, who rep resented himself to be Lord Beresford. an English nobleman, and married Mies Clara Pelky, daughter of a wealth y merchant in Providence. According to our story the false Lord Beresford took his bride to Mexico, but was last beard from at Hot Springs." Sidney Lascelles cut quite a figure in New York in the early nineties. He married Miss Mabel Lilienthal of Yon-kers. While posing as a lord in Rome, Ga., he forged a check for $1,000 and was sentenced to State prison. He was pardoned by Governor Atkinson. His wife obtained a divorce while he was in prison. On being released Lascelles promised to reform, came north and married Mias Pelky. No. 42 No. 56 No. 16 LEAVE AT ' FOR ST. LOUIS, ARRIVING 6:56 P.
