F. Bailey granted trial to O'Donnell Introduced, ounll or defense objected and Judge Stained the objection on the Ground that the matter was wholly U-ITeSt and made no difference to court " X; and that the fact teat he was SantS a new trial was sufficient The proceedings yesterday were of a technical character, and. to a novice, a tTrecess hour in the afternoon Miss Vina Le Clair, of Glenwood. the tar witness In the case, occupied a seat inalde the railing witn otner Joenaed as witnesses. Vina "looked sty- llsh. dressed In a neat ve;" " , hlrt waist with a bronie-colored floral design running through the texture. A ..in. neat belt encirciea ner waiai, w-. whtph she wore a black cloth sfcirt. a .lavender ascot-puff tie, with white stripe, nd brown kid gloves with large biacK braid effect on back, helped out the Jaunty, but modest, appearance of her costume. She wore a black English walk ing- hat with wide, black band; and large feathers In the side inly partially concealed A black vail her features, which are comely. The grounds on which Mr. Frawley e--cured a new trial for his client. O'Donnell, are in brief: First, on amdavits siting forth the discovery of new evidence. fh ttrst of which is that Vina L.e cialr haa made affidavit since trial, aenying testimony given at tne trial concerning the receipt of certain letters alleged to have Dten written by O'uonneii auer ne haa tantn up his residence in Kau Claire. Second, on tne ground that ti. H. Dean, an attorney of Gienwood, who had been employed by the defense to secure ev.-dence and amdavits, had later gone, over to the prosecution and disclosed the case to the state. , . . Third, that juror josepa ocuuicsaiu had made statements prior to trlai widen conflicted with statements which ne me when he quanheu as a juror In the tr.a. of the case. In opposition, Dlst. -Attorney Farr filed affidavits of Attorney Dean and Miss Le Clair denying the allegations set forth. On November 27, 1M, Judge Baliey set aside the verdict by which O Donnell was found guilty and ordered a new trial. This was done practically on two grounds firBt, that the relations of H. ii. Dean with the defense had been such that O'Donnell could not be said to have had a fair trial in view of the fact that Dean had been afterwards employed by the state. Second, that Vina Le Clair's testimony was not to be believed, in view of the many coniiicttng amdavits sworn to by her. The new trial was strenuously opposed Jy Mr. Farr, who urged that courts generally had held that the contradictory statements of witnesses, made after a trial was not svtncient grounds for setting aside a verdict. The proceedings now on in Judge O'Neill's court are said to be novel by Attorneys. It is probable that the action is the first of the kind ever brought In Wisconsin. The attorneys are watch- ing the case with a great deal ot interest. Deputy-Sheriff William La Grave, of Augusta, has charge of ihe Jury and wnl board them at the Hart House uur.ng the trial.

Campbell, WeM Superior,, of the Great Northern road, Is In the city. Mr. Campbell's route is between Duluth , and Cass Lake, .Minn., .the lat ter' place Is the terminus of the; dlyislorj and la on tne north side or Indian reservation, some 26 miles from Bear Island, where the Indian troubles are brewing. Mr. Campbell reports things" tranquil among Cass Lake Indians. In fact they pooh-pooh the Indian war and say they wilt have nothing to do with the Bear Island disturbers. C. W. Seeley, the Minnesota state timber Inspector had fifteen men inspecting timber on the reservation. He went immediately to the scene of action, and found his men safe. Cass Lake Is a railroad town, and Bena is merely a water-tank station on the Great Northern. Mr. Campbell says the trouble is greatly exaggerated when It is stated that the Indians at those places are uprising. They do not pay half as much attention to the affair as do the people In Eau Claire. The whole trouble arose over deputy marshals trying to secure Indians as witnesses in liquor cases. Whites were charged with selling liquor on Bear Island. When the deputies attempted to take the men wanted from the Island, they were attacked by a body of Indiana who took the prisoners from them by force and held the officers while they took their keys from them and unlocking the handcuffs on the prisoners set them free. In order to sustain the dignity of the law an armed force was sent after the men wanted, with the result that the Indians opened fire on the boat as it crossed Leech Lake and was nearing the Bear Island shore. The result of the fusilade Is already known to Leader readers. Bear Island Is only about four miles long and a mile-and-a-quarter wide in the widest place. It contains about 1,000 acVes of light-timber land and undergrowth. Mr. Campbell formerly resided in Eau Claire, and Is here to attend the golden wedding of . Mr. and Mrs. William Walter, which occurs on Monday evening. He runs a passenger train on the Eastern Minnesota which is a part of the Great Northern system. Leech Lake, by the way, is a great Ashing resort, there is game in abundance in the vicinity. , A DISPLAY OF LADIES JACKETS AND FURS. .

This Is one of the largest cloak houses of New York, and garments displayed will be the very newest novelties of the season. We will be very pleased to have the ladies call and see these garments and will be glad to take spec.al orders, and will make special prices on same. Yours respectful, ALFRED KAHN. STATE NEWS. Emil puve, a farmer living near Seymour, was seriously injured in a runaway, Wednesday. The La Crosse board of trade has con tributed $400 to the forest fire sufferers. The September report of Wisconsin national banks shows a falling on ot nearly $2,000,000 in deposits since July. The rain of the past few days has about extinguished the last of the forest fires in the northern part of the state. J. H. Eckels, ex-comptrolU-r ,of the currency, attended tne convention oi me Banker's association at Milwaukee last night. Edward Raemus, a boilermaker resid ing in Milwaukee, was struck by a pass enger train of the St. Paul road at 12;:!l) o'clock this morn ng and ki.led. Raemus was about 40 years of age. Louis Landerman, of Fond du Lac, was accidentally shot yesterday wm.e ruiHt-ing ducks. It is doubtful whether he will recover. John Bull, an old resident of Prairie du Chien, committed suie.de yesterday by shooting himself in the head with a revolver. H; was a veteran of the civil war. The netition that Silver City be annexed to Milwaukee will be taken up today by the judiciary committee of that city. There is some opposition to annexation and both sides will be heard. William Toole, of Baraboo, writes from Omaha that Wisconsin is leading in the fruit exhibit there. Mr. Toole will make an effort to exhibit some of Wisconsin's fruit at Paris in 1900. The whaleback Alexander McDougall went on the old dumping ground Wednesday morning at Buffalo, and four twgs were required before she got afloat. b G.

Ritiinger-Zlft SaiL Clair rrtet He Will Make His Home in Greencastle, v 4I?V. Hereafter, ; .Evening; "wisconsJiu Rev. Henry Ostrom, who some years ago was pastor of Trinltyi Methodist church, before he abandoned pastorajt work ipr the evangelical field, has inoved from Milwaukee and in the future will reside in Greencastle, Ind. ,Mr. Ostrom says he will return to Milwaukee some time, but when he. cannot say. He has been appointed conference evangelist by the Wisconsin conference for a number of' years and was reappointed at Waupun, but under conditions which he will hardly be able to meet In the discussion upon the subject It developed that Mr. Ostrom refuses to take charge of revivals that are confined to Mejthodlst churches exclusively. He will not go Into a city unjess the Protestant churches join in a union revival. Racine wanted Mr. Ostrom. but he Informed Dr. Haylett that he would not come unless there was a Union meeting, and so he was not engaged. Dr. Haylett told the conference of this and other ministers made similar statements,! nd then the condition was attached to the appointment of Mr. Oetrom that the greater portion of his work must be done In the Wisconsin conference and In the Methodist churches. In talking of union revival meetings Bisdop Merrill said they were a good thing so far as increasing the collections were concerned. NOT BUILT THAT WAY. Judge Gough of the Sentinel says: "When we see a priest or a minister riding a bicycle, we always think of Darwin's descent of man." That all depends upon what kind of a priest or a minister he Is. If he is very fat he had better confine himself to terra flrma and If he Is very thin and lanky he had better visit his parishoners in some other fashion. Neither the Judge or Major were ever intended for the Cycle Path. When they make their trips De-tween the twin cities they find the coach or street car more in their line than the pneumatic tire. If the preachers like to worry with a wheel, let them do so, by- all means. A man can look after the lambs of the flock and go to heaven on a bike, just as well, if not better than In a buggy. If we are not bike-built ourselves. Judge, let us not begrudge others tne pleasures of a safety. SPECIAL SALE Of-Kld Gloves at the-Chicago Store Saturday.
