the goverment was aware that Mr. Morgan's
NIcaraguan canal hi had passed the United

. . , . representations to time government or time
, United States against provIsions In Ir , Mor-
gan's bill detrimental to the Interests of

whether time government would consider the
propriety 01 urging upon the government of
time United Slates the importance oC the crea-
ton or a British and American : commission to
deal with time question of the construction of

usual for the government to make any rep-
rcsentatIcns against bills before foreign legislatures -
'k latures The government , he added , consIdered
' _ ) s that such I canal as I was proposed to construct -
slruct through Nicaragua should be under

MINNEAPOLIS , Feb. H.-I was the dc-
fense's turn In the hayward murder trIal
today , the prosecution having closed Its case
last night aud there was eager curIosity to
learn what tack Attorney Erwin and his as
slstants would pursu . The deCendant's dc-
men nor upon entering time court room was
IJosltvely jubilant. lie nodded to some lady
friends In time front row , amid then , s\ylll
his mother , went up to her and said : "Oood
morning , little niothier . " and kissed her tip-
turned lips .
When John Day Smith arose to address the
jury In his deliberate fashion , hInrr' faced
squarely around to the ( jury and scannell
their faces as the words fell from the lips
of his counsel. Before the court opened he
found ( tine to tel the reporters that the ,
report In a morning paper that he had remarked - '
marked : "They are going to hang me , " was
unlualfefly false , and that he had never
given uterance to any such slntement. "
Attorney Smith , In addresslnl the jury ,
called attention to I number of things the
state had promised at the outset to prove
and which , he said , It had not p oved. It
had not shown that Hayward hall securetl
all of Miss Ging's money , as she had a balance -
alice In bank at her death ; It had not shown
that ho lied gone riding wIth her the Wednes-
day and Saturday cvenlng before the umumr-
tier as promised. Mr. Smih dcclared that
the Insurance transactions , the acquiring oC
an Insurable Interest , and time walvure of the
assnult clause , oC which much had been made
by the state , were all In the ordinary course
of buslncss anti not In nny way unusual
The sweat box method of wringing so-called
conCessions from Dlxt and Adry hayward
was referred to In denunciatory torms. The
defense ndmlte that Harry was n gambler
and deplored thin fact . but asserted that he
was not on trial for gambling , but for mur-
"Gentlemen or the jury , " exclaimed the
attorney , "the mute Corm 01 Catherine Gng
lying at the county morgue gives the lie to
Claus A. mlxt. Time evidence presented by I ,
the defense will fairly prove to you that
Claus A. Ilxt pounded that woman's head
almost to : jelly before he fired the shot
and then only fred It when ho thought she
was not dead.
"When Dlxt came to the stand his honor.
ex-Mayor Eustis . stepped up to him and
shook hands wIth him wIth I smiling faCe.
"I could not help but think that I was to
give him character before this jur ) ' , I
confess yon coud : 10t have touched the booded :
hands or the murderer for 1 large sum of
money. I bleve In the religion of Jesus
Christ , who has promised to forgive sIns ,
but has not promised to remove time scars.
Such actions as those of nlxt arA I tra\'esty.
"Thero Is nnother witness wlt whom we
are confronted here who Is peculiar In many
respects We will show you that 'he has
led l 1 shIftless life. He was involved In
this case at the begInning and was put
through the 'sweat process' anti showed the
proverbial jealousy or the elder brother You
wi remember . L that L _ . ' 19 . tIme _ u. _ beginning u , . , of . hIs
testimony 10 100Keu wln pity on aim urOller
and said : 'I do not blame him for making
time best defense ho can. ' You will remember -
ber how , later. when his mother was sIt-
ting yonder , that mother who had borne
him and watched over him with tender so-
hicitude . be told of a Quarrel he had had
with her and other members or the Camly ,
and had said to that mother : 'Why did
you raise such n litter or pups ? '
" 110 was a peculiar man In many respects :
and had a diathesis from whIch he could not
separate himself. There have been experts
here both for the state and the defense and
they ( vl be examined on that point. There
have 'en no less than six members or the
. - . , . , . . . .
family connne mine aSYlum uecause they
were Inmne. Yo claim hat ! Harry Is much
more sane than his brother Adry.
"Now you wIll doubtless want to know what
Is the theory or the deCense. Gentlemen , we
have no theory. TheorIes have hanged many
a man You must be convinced of time gui
or the defendant beyond 1 reascnble douht.
Wo wIll also establish I complete alibi for
Harry It time time he was said to have been
at the Kenwood boulevard givIng Dlxt derec- .
"Wo shall brIng out some of the testimony
which has lain Imurc In the county ator-
ney's office . ant Ilal show that there was
a suspicIous character In the city about whom
the county attorney was told , but he did not
use the information. Yo expect to compel
time bloody clothes found on the shores of
I.3lte Calhoun to Ie brought Into court. The
defendant will take the stand In his own be-
half , and that's all there ts In this case "
"Harry Hayward comes Into court , , con-
eluded ! r. SmIth "confronted by the test-
mony of a brother whose hert Is fled with
deadly enmity , and Blxt , who with perjUred
tongue has sought to conceal and shIeld his
real confederate All wo nk Is that the sun-
light of God's truth shall bo let In on this
most remarkable case. "
John Walsh leper . or the morgue , was the
fIrst witness . and he deserlbed the Incidents
connected with the brInging of Miss Ging's
body to the morgue. He undressed and
washed the body Immediately , and In answer
to Mr. ErwIn's questions described mInutely I
the clothing found on the body the wounds
and where blood was found.

The opinion to be given by Atlmey ! General
Curchl tomorrow to thb special committee
nppolntell by time house Inst' week to consider
the penitentiary contract , promises to create
something akin to n sensation. The opinion
Is n very elaborate one and recites the
complete history of the pententnry con
tract from its inception down through its
career of vicissitudes to the time when I
Iassed' ) Into time hnnch of V. ' . II. Dorgan
In brier , time attorney general Is 01 the
opinion that the contract Is valid , and morn
than thnt , that Mosher's bondsmen umler
under the contract have been releasemi . amt
that the state has ubsolutely no protection
'agaimmat any fraud that tIme present contractor
many elect ta perpetrate
The attorney general Rives I as his opInion
that tie legislature hall the undoubted right
to mnke the contract , and that havln bus
so It cannot pass I law nullh'ln that con-
tract le Is Clrther 01 the olllnlon that tht '
bond given hy Mosher for the Cllthlli per-
Cormnnco of his part of the contract Is worthi
less.le arrives nt this opinion by reasonlnl
thnt the lIve men who signed Iosher's bond

macn The attorney general , , hcwever , po'nts
out a simple remedy for the present unpro-
tectetl condition or the state. Dorgan hohls
the contract , but has ntver furnished the
state any bond for its faithful perCormance.
Time ICllslature can , If It desires to break
the contract , pass I resoluton directng Doran -
gan to file t Ioctl and sufelelt bOIl within
thIrty days. I he falD to do so , then legal
proceedings could be Instituted against him
h ) the attorney general to annul the contract '
Time attorney bases his opInion on federal decisIons -
cisIons , Inasmuch as ho hells that any at-
tempI to annul time contract under existing
conditions would entitle Dorgnn to I trial
of time issue In the federal court
The original prison contract was let to
( pIson :
W. H. B. Stout on September 22. lsn , by the
Board or Publc Lands and liumihilinge , for
six yeus. : Time legislature of 18i9 passed a
law extending Stout's contract for six years
( roam October I , 1893 , ondltcnl upon the
constrlct'on ' by Stout oC 240 tone cells , free
of expense to the state. In 1883 the legis\-
tlre passed another law , gIving time prison
contractom' unt October , 18S. to construct
time 240 cells , provIde that at least lGO 01
them should be Inlshell by , Octcher , 1883 ,
In 1887 the legislature dabbled In the contract
business a little more , by fnating a law
whIch transferred the contract to C.V. .
Mosher , and extending It ten fears. On February -
mary 1. 1892 , Iosher transferred the contract '
to W. H. Dorgan , and time Hoard of PublIc
Land and Buildings recognized Dorgn as
the contractor , to the extent that It has
paId him the warrants that would be due
to Mosher every quarter. Th warrants ha\'e
always beE drawn In ! osh r's name. The
stone cells have been placed iii I the coil house
but recently , and It Is now amerted that they

about 4 o'clode m'trchmed down town In a

alcons. They startell with the avowed In-
tenton oC vIsiting every saloon In the cIty ,
but soon Couli the atempl too laborious.
For several days It has been known that
the ladles were contemplntng luch I move.
Mahocd's Investgaton of the Faloons amid
houses of prostitution hns aroused the ( en-
thuslnsm pf tIme Cemnle portion of his comm-
gregaton . till the ( women were ready for almost -
most nn.thlng. Time raIding or the saloons ,
however was total ) ' unexpected. The ladies
marched donmi to the business seclon ly
twos headed b ) Irs. II. C. Joimmisoum . and
Mrs. Ii. H. lathlwn ) ' , officers of the so-
clety . At the first saloon tIme Icallers asked
for the proprietor who presented hlmseH ,
while the others of the invading party
poured tn nt the door till the room was filled
to overlowlng anti many were tumble to
enter. Mrs. Johnson had In her hand I cop
of the Martin liquor law , which she offered
to the prorpletor to reall I he desired.
lIe declnetl anti she saId : "Unless wo find
this place complying wIth every rcqulrement
or this law by next Monday morning we shall
take steps to hl\e It closed. I the pro-
visions of this law were enforced there would
not be half as many saloons In this city
today. \\'e have waited long enough for the
men to enforce the laws they have made.
The women now propose to take a hand and
see what they can do. 'Vo warn you that
every saloon that does not comply with cv-
cry detail or time requirements or the law
wIll be chosod , and the strongest measures
used agaInst those guilty 01 violatng time
law "
At two or three places the women were
received courteously but when they reached
John Mamidersehield's saloon , all the long
line oC women began to pour itself Inside ,
Manllerscheld came forward , and , seizing Mrs.
Johmon by time arm , exclaimed , "Here , you
can't do this sort of thing lucre. "
At this moment , a newspaper . man who lad
forced hIs way tn , with the women stepped
forward to Interfere with Manderscheid , who
Instanty struck him In the Cace.
An officer who was In the saloon at the
time . came forward and declared thaI the
proprietor could refuse admission to the
women If he desired. At this Mamiderzchmeid !
aided by another man In the place , began tu
push the women violenty out of the place
wih oaths and abuse. Several mcn J d
crowded In and attempted to protect the
women. I was impossible however. to force ,
their way Inside , anti they were compelled to
, 'retire. . One . . of 1ho Ld leaders , " . _ _ started _ , _ _ a 'n ! hymn .0 ,

standing on the walk In front of the saloon
sInging himstily.
Nothing daunted the women pressed on and
went through the next saloon without opposition -
tion . Dy this time their trluml.11 march
dow tIme main street of the city had at-
trcted an Immense crowd , and they were
surroulled by a mob of time curious.
At two or three places they were refused
admittance , time doors being locleed. At the
others they served their notice and went on.
After about an hour from the tme
Aler they had started In , tIme party quietly
disbanded , wIth the understanding that they
would meet again tomorrow to contnue theh
worlc. Ther Is no doubt the women can
compel the enforcement of the law In all par
tlculars , and that I they do so It will compel
many saloons to close. I Is not generaly b2-
Sieved thin crusade wIll haveserlous results.
Icvell women say they will also close tIme
houses of prostitution. .
