ing negotiations, as requested by the
prince regent, would mean the sur
render of a fundamental right. The

such negotiations the establishment
of a separate consular service. In con
sequence of this decision the regent
issued the following statement! "The
Norwegian government unfortunately
declines to associate Itself -ith my
proposal for fresh negotiations con
cerning the union. I must therefore
with sincere regret leave the matter
to the council cf state."

most interesting development m the
testimony in the trial of Nan Patter

rhysie-ian O Hauler, tck-k the witness
stand for the prosecution and said m
reply to questions that he had
changed hla opinion that Young had
committed suicide. Dr. O'Hanlon
performed the autopsy on Young's
body, in his testimony he said:
"My present opinion is not the opin

think now it is a case for the jury
to decide. I thought at the time that
I detected powder marks on the hands

Assistant District Attorney Rand

that he simply expressed the suicide

Rollan Brown, the son of one of the
men killed at the Prohibition mass
meeting, v. a; placed under arrest, oa
a charge ot tiring the shot which
killed Representative Pinckney. He
stated tha his father was under the
influence cf intoxicants when he at
tended tho meeting, and that he at
tempted to dissuade him from attend
ing. His father, however, was firm in,
his intention and went to the meeting.
The son followed and took part In
the shooting. It has been established
that the trouble began when Captain
Brown attempted to secure recognition
to speak at the meeting. It is said
that his language was offensive to
several ladies present and the fusil
lade began immediately afterward.
Congressman Pinckney was shot four
times and was almost instantly killed.
Thomas Pinckney. a brother of the
congressman, was chct twice in the
back and killed and Captain Brown
received a bullet through the heart.
John E. Mills, the remaining victim,
took no part in the affair and was ac
cidentally killed by a stray bullet.
The killings are the direct result
of a Prohibition movement in Waller
county, which was begun some years
ago. and the feeling has been intense.
An election was held in Waller coun
ty. April 20, and the Prohibitionists,
with whom the Pinckneys were affil
iated, were successful. The Prohi
bition league was called together to
wind up its affairs and disband. A
resolution, requesting the governor to
send troops to Waller county for the
purpose of enforcing the law against
liquor sellers was excitedly debated.
It was at this juncture that Captain
H. M. Brown, who had figured prom
inently as an anti-Prohibitionist,
sought to have the chairman recog

A Three-Sim? Circus.
The "councilmanic comedy last
night turned cut to be a three ring
cirus, the honors beng about equally
divided among the chief performers
in each rins The three English speak
ing Columbus editors refereed the per
formance, each holding down a separ
ate corner of the council chamber;
and most all of the city officers and
same spectators held reserved seat9.
Councilmea Galley and Greisen did
the "juggling stunt" in one ring;
Councilman Greisen first appeared,
held up the Gray resolution before the
spectators, made a few quick passes,
and lo that resolution vanished ; and
so quickly was it done that even the
provision for submitting the city
printing to bias, escaped the quick
eye of Councilman Clark, who after
the disappearance exclaimed in a stu
pefied kind of way, "That doesn't
affect ihe bids, does it?" But scarcely
was this "stunt" completed when
Mr. Galley appeared before the foot
lights, holding Howard's "official
paper" high above his head where
every spectator could read Howard's
boast. "The Telegram is the official
paper of Columbus." But even as
the spectators read, the vision dis
appeared and in its place passed the
disappointed ghost of the false prophet.
Before the spectators had time to
recover their self-possession, the band
oesan to play in the second ring and
another more engaging scene flashed
before tbem. The "boy councilman"
from the Third, togged out in the
attire of the "Ewe's Fool," rushed
upon the stage with an important
looking type-written document, which,
with a wink, he banded to the clerk.
Ihe clerk read it. It bore the names
of good citizens from the Third, the
ward where sood men vcted acainst
Mr. Sheldon because it was al
leged that gentleman had neglected
to provide a certain light on Thir
teenth street. The petitioners asked
that the missing light be supplied.
And the new councilman was sitting
in silent contemplation of free rides
on the shoulders of admiring consti
tuents when they should learn of his
patriotic service. But ye gods of mis
fortune! Some councilman, called
for a map, and the 'jig was up," for
there, on the very identical spot where
the petitioners asked for a light, was
a light which had been provided long
before by the thoughtful hands of
Councilman Sheldon and others, who
in looking out for their Thirteenth
street neigbors, forgot even to supply
lights for themselves. Thus ended
Councilman Zinnecker's stunt, and
the spectators voted him the palm as
the best entertainer in the circus.
But the third rins was yet to be
heard from. And what happened in
this ring was "heard" and not" seen"
for it consisted chiefly of discordant
noises. Finally it was possible to hear
the leader of the band, Mr. Dietrich,
as he shouted loader than the rest,
"The saloons mast remove their
screens, their screens must be remov
ed." Soon all others joined in the
chorus except Mr. Greisen who sulked
and refused to sine at alL Mr. Zin
necker alone had the nerve to break
in with other words, "Let the saloons
retain their screens, their screens
shocld be retained."
And thus ended the performance
which will be repeated " by request"
neyt Friday night.
The proceedings of the council last
night are briefly condensed, as follows:
On motion by Greisen the Gray res
olution rescinding a previous resolu
tion which named the Columbus Tele
