MlNNEATOLTS, All!?. 24.— MtS. LaUf9 ! Perkius. charged -with the murder of feer twin sister Lola, xvas arraigned in the police court during the afternoon and remanded without bail to appear Thursday next for a preliminary hearing. Mrs. Hawkins, the dead woman, expired on the morning of Aug. 9 from injuries supposed to have been received by the accidental explosion of a lamp. The recent developments in the case and the arrest of Mrs. Perkins have caused a sensation in this city second only to the murder of Catherine Gmg, and the motive for the crime is said to have been the same in both cases. Mrs. Hawkins carried $7,000 insurance on her life, and her sister, Mrs. Perkins, now under arrest, was the sole beneficiary. Wn8 Supposed to UP Accidental. At the time of the occurrence every one supposed it to have been accidental, and no one for a minute ever thought that the sister, still alive and a widow who resides with her one child, was capable of the terrible act of which she now stands accused. Superintendent of Police ever, looked into the case slightly aud finally consulted with County Attorney Nye, and, as a result of their investigations, Inspectors Lawrence and Hoy were detailed to work on the case, and the insurance companies, loo, asked to do some investigating before paying the $7,000 insurance. They sent their two medical inspectors to this city, and since that time work has been going on night and day on the case, with the result that Mrs. Perkins was arrested on the terrible charge. Two Lump Explosions. Mrs. Hawkins, the deceased, was injured on two different occasions by lamp explosions. The first alleged explosion simply burned her hands in quite a serious manner. The occasion of the second alleged lamp explosion of Aug. 9 is the one about which interest entirely centers. The theory of the state is that while the deceased slept, Mrs. Perkins saturated her sister's clothing with kerosene oil and set fire to it with matches; that then she, herself, upset the lighted lamp on the stand to add credibility to the story that Mrs. Hawkins had accidentally overturned it in her sleep. The flames at once Enveloped the Sleeping Woman and Mrs. Perkins screamed for help. No effort was made by Mrs. Perkins to put out the flames and it was not until the arrival of neighbors that anything was done. Then help was too late to be of any service to Mrs. Hawkins. She was burned almost to a crisp. Public sympathy is strongly with the arrested woman, and many believe that the authorities and insurance detectives have been too hasty and have worked a terrible and irreparable injury. Others in a position to form a clearer opinion do not for a moment believe County Attorney Nye would issue the warrant did he not have at his hand almost certain evidence of the charge which he has made. IMPERSONATED THE VICTIM. Hill t&lM of ttle OTeAfc em—NflTHitrn £ftclftc tfenl. ST. PAVL, Aug. 20.—J. .t.

Piece of Kvlileiiue Against Mrs. I'evUius. MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 26.—The sensational arrest of Mrs. Lora Perkins for the murder of Mrs. Lola Hawkins is still the talk of the town. The fundamental and principal piece of evidence which the state has against Mrs. Perkins is the assertion that she impersonated Mrs. Hawkins in taking out. the two insurance policies, forged Mrs. Hawkins' signature to the policies and herself paid the two premiums. The agents who wrote the policies will both swear that it was Mrs. Perkins, the defendant, who made out the application for the policies and signed them, representing herself to them to be Mrs. Hawkins aud signing the name, Lola Hawkins. Another Strong Voint, this being circumstantial evidence, is that Mrs. Perkins' boy, Frank, told certain parties that his mother had told him the night before the fatal fire to sleep with all his clothes on. The state can prove that the boy stated liis mother told him to do this and that he also said she told him to have all his clothes on the night before the first fire occxtrred. At the hour the first occurred certain of the neighbors were a little surprised to see Fraukie rash from the burning house fully dressed, and asked him how it happened, receiving theply that his mother told him the night before to sleep on the lounge with his clothes on. THOUSANDS OF VISITORS. Six Thousand Feople Witness the Mcil- cnu Sport in Colorado. CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo., Aug. 26.— Another bull was killed in the arena at Gillett Sunday in the presence of 6,000 people and the work was done in* the style of Spain and Mexico. The first bull turned into the arena was an exceedingly tame animal even after:the darts were in him. He refused to fight and the multitude cried for a new imi- inal. Arizona Charley appeared to be equally disgusted and he upbraided the band of cowboys that drove the bull into the arena. The next animal made a fight for his life, but its fight was quickly over. Chieta, the king of the arena in not only Mexico, but in Spain, made two stabs at the animal and then left him practically dead, but the Mexicans with the red cloaks released the creature and made him dart at them. One came within an uce of losing his life and there was great excitement in consequence, especially among $ie little party from the. country to «S/hich the individual belonged. Not a few women fainted. An Exhibition of Cruelty. At the ring not a single shout of ap- approval was heard. Not an applauding hand was raised. For four minutes, which to many seemed to stretch into 10, the bull had fought with deatli and men iu the full sight of them all, blood squrtiug from gaping sword wounds just back of his right shoulder, welling from his mouth and nostrils, flecking his own sides aud forming great pools on the ground. For over two or three minutes the bull stood motionless almost, save for heaving Bides as he gave long gasps for breath, then fell. Only a few seconds he lay quite still. Then he slowly struggled to his feet aud leaned against the heavy barrier of the bull ring as if for support, pitifully weak from the crimson streams fast coloring the ground about him. Then he gathered himself and started slowly forward, Staggering and Waving from side to side. For 20 feet the bull advanced, weak, bloody, faltering, then fell again, his fresh, warm blood welled up a little over the clotted mass on the animal's shoulder, at eveiy step lessening the pulsation of the heart. A Spaniard iu a gaudy costume stepped up to the quivering beast and sent the sharp point of a sword blade into the neck of the animal, snapping the spinal chord. The legs of the animal drew up convulsively and then life, clung to so desperately and long, was gone. It was simply an exhibition oi cruelty and was not enjoyed at all by the crowd. Over a hundred deputy sheriffs were in attendance and the management was again placed under arrest, but 110 attempt was made to stop the proceedings. Superior has ended.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 24.—The report of tho board of army engineers appointed by the secretary of war to report upon the effect the Chicago drainage canal would have upon the waters of Lake Michigan has been received afc the war department. It probably wilt not be made public until the return of Secretary Lamout. Very little can be learned as to the contents of the report although it is understood that the board finds that the canal probably would reduce the average level of Lake Michigan about 6 inches, and possibly Lake Huron the same. This lower level no doubt would be objectionable to the shipping interests, but the fact that the lake has varied from one cause or another, such as a lack of rainfall, or unusual evaporation, more than one foot, in different years, ships have been built with a vievv to accommodating themselves to this reduced level. It is understood that the position-taken by the board is thufc the former variations are such as to not make this reduction of six inches of very great importance. What action will be taken on the report will not be determined until Secretary Lamont has given a hearing to all interested parties. TWENTY-ONE BODIES FOUND. of tfrts ftllltftg of Ftftffcfl ftnftfto<!fc«. Or., Aug. '26.—tMamonct Alley, the scene of the reported killing of 15 Bannock Indians* is situated on the southeastern corner of Oregon. Burns, the county seat of Harney county, is 150 miles distant from Ontario, the nearest telegraph office. Ontario is A small station on the Oregon Short Line near the border between Oregon and Idaho.- The news is not credited here as it was not known that any Bannock Indians were in the vicinity. Diamond valley is owned almost entirely by Peter French, the most extensive cattle raiser in Oregon. He also has ranches scattered over the whole of Southwestern Oregon, and his cattle are numbered by the tens of thousands. "Rye" Smith is one of French's foremen and when drinking is Said to Me Very UttiirfslSome. C. A. Moore, a well known attorney of this city, who is acquainted with Smith and Who was a resident of Lake county for several years, said: "1 do not believe 15 Indians have been killed. It is likely that the Indians, came into Diamond valley to fish and hunt and French's men drove them out. French cuts immense quantities of hay during the summer atu'l probably the Indian ponies were feeding on the hay lauds, which incensed Smith, niiclhe, with his men, have killed an Indian or two, but I think it highly improbable that 35 Indians were killed." RANSOM TO BE REAPPOINTED. He How- Not Mclurn to Mexico, cvev, Unless He So Desires. NEW YORK, Aug. 26.—A special to The Herald from Washington says: Matt W. Ransom of North Carolina Will be reappointed United States minister to Mexico, and the president will thus rectify the blunder made in the first appointment of Mr. Ransom while he was Btill a member of the senate. Whether Mr. Ransom will return to Mexico or not will depend entirely upon his own wishes. In deciding what to do in the matter, Mr. Ransom will be governed very largely, if not entirely, by consideration as to his health. If Mr. Ransom, finds it advisable, to decline the Mexican mission, he will probably be offered some other place, though none is now vacant, or likely to become vacant iu the near future that will compare favorably with the mission to Mexica.
