before the Hoard ot Fire and Police commis
sioners lor a short discussion. The matter
had been referred last week to Messrs , Co-
burn and Strlckter ( or consideration , |
Mr , Strlcklcr stated that Mr , Coburn had
been sick and he had been unable to confer j
with him. Ills opinion was that the board
should ask the council ( or $10,000. If the
council would not grant It , the salaries of
the men would have to be cut or some houses ]
closed. The deficit would be about (13,000.
To caver this It would be necessary to cut
the men GO per cent In salaries , Mr.
Strlcklcr thought that this would be unjust.
II thought the board would be reduced to
the extremity Of closing Eomo ol the outside :
houses and discharging the. men ,
The matter was not further discussed. Mr.
Smith moved that the board meet next
Wednesday night at 7:30 : o'clock and consider
solely how to reduce the expenses of the de
partment whether by reducing salaries or
closing unnecessary houses. The chief and
his assistants were. Invited to attend. The
motion was carried.

Public Jnterest In the loan exhibit of oil

Increase. It Is an interesting fact that
the hundreds who 'have seen the exhibit
marvel greatly at the broad scope at art In

creditable a collection could bo made.
There has been since , the opening night
vast Improvement made in the rooms de
voted to the exhibit ; many pictures have
been added and there Is now an art atmos
phere about the place that Is. very restful.
J. G. Brown , who Is known on both sides o
the Atlantic , la represented on the wall In
the middle section by this clever picture
"The Card Trick , " owned by George A.
Josslyn and purchased at tbo Columbian ex
position. Mr. Brown was a member of the
board ot judges , and the picture In consequence
quence was exempt. It Is In the painter's mosi
felicitous \cln-a group of : street gamins wh
arc watching a colored bootblack perform , a
card trick which he had seen Herrmann di
the night before from his airy scat In tin
top gallery of the theater. The tbrlgh
smiles on the faces of the boys and the qulzzl
cal expression on the face of the amateu
card performer make a study pleasing to th
eye.Mr. . J. G. Borglumwho Is known here
has a marine on exhibition , "Off the Coast o ;
Monterey , " owned and exhibited by Mr.
Charles A. Coo. It Is one of Mr , Horglum' '
happiest efforts , the color and motion ot th

One ot the dainty bits of the collection 1
an Interior by Miss Ethel Evans , Instructo

point ot view , while the atmosphere Is ful
of light and beauty.
John J. Ilerold , a pupil ot the art school
shows talent In his sketch from still life ,
It Is well handled and well grouped.
Mrs , Mumaugh In her recent work shows
broadening spirit of art quite worthy ot men
tlon. In one canvart partlculary has sh
caUKht the true artistic feelinga , marine
painted while on Long Island Sound las
summer , It Is art excellent bit of water ,
the roll of the ocean being finely done. He
large canvas of grapes Is also pleasing an
well painted. Mr. Lawrlo Wallace has
number ot sketches on the walls , all of them
showing the artist at his1 very treat ; one ,
sketch made white on an outing In Iowa
being exceedingly valuable from a pure !
artistic standpoint. Mr. Wallace Is a rapl
worker , nnd he seems to feel his snbjec
which he brings out so cleverly on canvas
There Is another sketch ot clouds whlc
does the director credit , although , as lie- say
the approach of a thunder storm prevenle
Its completion , but nevertheless it Is a splen
did studio piece and shows the artist and h
qimllOcatlous to advantage.

Then Jim O'Shea and some other of the

cupy Commercial hall at the plate fair

A case that Is attracting the attention of
the police Is that ot an old soldier living on

Vrom the effects of poison administered from

some that a man who has been bestowing
attention upon her Is responsible to some
extent for Main's condition , which Is critical
In the extreme. The old man possesses
some land and a goodly pension , which
would fall to his heirs in case ot his death.
Nothing can be learned , from the police.

It appears that a week ago Dr. Graham
whose oillce Is on the fourth floor of the
Hurr block , waa called to the hotel and
found the. young lady with all the symptoms
ordinarily exhibited by one upon whom a
criminal operation had been attempted. The
physician , after a good deal of questioning

betrayed by one of the- guests of the hotel
, and that to hide her shame she had used an

All the employes of the undertaking estab-
Ishment and the coroner were emphatic In
their statement that they did not know any
thing about the case , but the certificateat
death on flic gives the cause of death as
' 'Abortion , " and at 1 o'clock a Jury was em-
panneled , which viewed the remains nnd
tool : an adjournment.

this morning and gave grounds for the hold-

It has been learned that shortly before the
girl was taken sick she told one of her com
panions in the hotel that , she expected to
have some trouble and was going to one of
the physicians of the city for treatment , but
did not give his name.

lErothur Secrut Letter from
MINNEAPOLIS , Oct. 15. Has the czar
of all the Russlas been skillfully poisoned
and slowly put to death by scientific means
n the hands of nihilists ?
Dr. George P. J. Schmidt , the German
ravelcr , now In Minneapolis , has just re
ceived secret dispatches from St. Petersburg
which throw a strong- light on the crisis
11 European politics caused by the impending
death of the czar. These dispatches came
written in sympathetic Ink on an appar
ently blank piece of paper. The applica
tion of heat broil < ilit out some etrange steno
graphic characters , which the doctor readily
translated. He showed the dispatch to
an Associated press reporter today and re
marked that in order to send such things
from St. Petersburg It was necessary to
doubly protect them by the use of sym
pathetic Ink and a secret code. The most
sensational matter In the dispatch Is the
Intimation that tlie cz.ir'e illness has been
caused by other than natural means. The
lector translated the dispatch for the As
sociated press as follows :
"The czar is lying at the point of death.
The excitement of the highest circles of
Uiibsl.1 In tremendous. It I ? understood In
wide circle in Russia that hla sickness
was brought about by scientific means and
that his death will not be a natural one. It
Is on account of this that the Journals con
tradict the fact of the czar's , sickness. There
Is a party that wants to sea the czarcwltch
on the throne. The czarcwitch Is of a
cranky , melancholy nature , Inclined to In
stitute the most radical reforms throughout
Russia , and has already madu plans for
such action. Ho Is much hated by the
clergy. The patriarch of JIoscow , who Is
at the head oC the Greek church , has trav
eled about with the czar in order to persuade
him to put his second son on the throne
instead of the czareultoh. The Greek Cath
olic church of Russia Is feverishly excited.
The Rclchsrath , or council of the empire ,
Is dally holding secret councils. The pan-
Slavic party Is with the church and against
the czarewltch. who Is a great friend of Ger
many. Should the czar decide to place his
second son ott the throne this ould be
looked upon as a direct Insult to Germany
and would be attended with the most seri
ous results ,
"The second son of the czar Is very Inimi
cal to the Germans , friendly to the French ,
dreadfully despotic and In the highest de
gree headstrong , and a strong autocrat. It
Is feared that on the deathbed of. the czar
the church Influence will succeed In Inducing
him to call his second son as his successor.
As this second eon Is very hot-headed ho Is
sure not to remain long on the throne
without becoming seriously Involved In state
troubles. The 88-years-old patriarch of JIos
cow has had a two hours' conference with
the czar at his deathbed , but no one knows
the purpose of this talk. The second son
of the czar Is very despotic , opposed to the
liberty of the people , and is of an envious
nature. He la a fine soldier , fond of a
fight , a mattlal fellow and very ambitious.
Ha is an enemy of England , ot Germany
and , above all , of America. He not only
Intends to Increase the size of Asiatic Rus
sia , but also to attempt the tremendous
( ask ot bridging the Dcrlnp : straits and ex
tending his empire in the direction of
America. The prince Is by all odds one
of the greatest generals In Russia , having
been with Mourlia and Tlmaschlerr , and
having Gtudled with the latter. All of the
cabinets of Europe are alarmed.
"It Is rumored that the entrance of Eng
land Into the Drelbund , that IB. the Triple
alliance , Is about to take place. Already
between Russia and France secret relations
have been entered Into. "
