Numerous witnesses testified to sinning
applications in St. Faul which they never
saw again. They were told, they said,
that tbey were to get $100 for signing- the
papers, and that their expenses for two
trips to South Dakota would be defrayed.
When asked If he had anything to say
why sentence should not be paased Stearns
"What I hare to say, your honor, can
Soon after I was arrested In this matter
I came to St. Paul and with two of my
friends went to see the district attorney.
At no time would I have not been willing
to plead guilty to having fenced these
lands for pasture. I never tried to get
the lands for any other purpose. Sixty
other men who have been doing the same

Here Steams broke down and wept bit
terly, being unable to go on with the re
marks. With an effort he managed to control
his feelings and continue his remarks.
"Tet never, while I was In the position,
did I ever sign a false paper for any of

Judge Amldon moved aoma papers on bis

"Mr. Steams, how old axa you?" asked
"I am 63 year old," replied Steams.
"Have you any children 7" said the court.
"I have on daughter 23 years old, and a
wife," waa the reply.
'It la a sad duty that falla to ma to be

"but something must be done by way of an

Stearns walked slowly back to bla aeat

Horsnell Also Weeps.
Judge Amldon called the name of William
T. Horsnell, and a tall, dark man walked
before the bar and stood facing the Judge.
"Have you anything to say," asked
"Nothing except what has been said for

BED OF THE NIAGARA RIVER
Things Revealed by he Construction
of Cofferdams on tha
The recent Canadian hydraulic operations
at Niagara, necessitating the construction
of Immense cofferdams, which have laid
open to view considerable areas of the river
hd. have put us In possession of Informa
tion regarding this part of the river that
would have been impossible otherwise to
obtain. In an article contributed to the
Ulectrical Review, Alton D. Adams reminds
us that by far the greater part of tha river
finds Ita way through the Canadian chan
nel, so that while the American fall has
occasionally been completely dried up by
ice Jama In the rapids, thus exposing tha
bottom of the American channel, the
greater dfpth of the Canadian channel has
heat Its fall In continuous operation. Ha
"Mystery hangs over the Canadian chan
nel. No bridge spans It. No boat has ever
crossed it. None of the many unfortunates
that have made Its fatal descent has re
turned to descrlbo Its breakers. Today Ita
greater portion remains as unexplored as
when Father Hennepin, In 179, first saw
that 'great and prodigloua cadence of
waters which falla down after a surprising
and astonishing manner. Insomuch that the
universe does not afford Its parallel.'
"In its course of 1,000 feet over the cas
cades above the Horseshoe falls, Niagara
river descends fifty-live feet. With 223,000
cubic feet per second as the total normal
discharge of the river, and with M per
cent of this discharge going down the
Canadian channel, the volume there is 1,
CiM cubic feet per second. Tills volume of
water falling fifty-five feet does work at a
rate of somewhat more than 1,370,000-herse
power, or more than twice the ultimate
capacity of all the electric plants under
construction shout the falla
"This great power is expended In break
ing and grinding up the hsrd limestone of
the river bed. Results of this work of the
water were exposed to view by the build
ing of cofferdams outside of the proposed
intake works of the Ontario Power com
pany at the Dufferln Islands, and of the

Not only was the bedrock found to be

By these operations Mr. Adams tells us
the first accurate data as to the depth of

obtained. A ship drawing sixteen feet of

construct its works the Electrical Develop
ment company carried a crib cofferdam
with a length of 2,150 fet out Into the river
to a distance of more than 600 feet from j
the natural shore line In Queen Victoria
park. Near its outermost part this coffer
dam reached a depth of twenty-four feet
of water and a bedrock level of 515 feet
above tide. At this point the surface level
of the river was between the first and the
second cascade. Relow this cascade, about
450 feet from tho original shore line, the
depth of water was nineteen feet. So
strong waa the current between the two
points Just mentioned that It was found
necessary to give the stone and timber
cofferdam a total thickness of forty feet,
with six foot of clay puddle in between its
two sections. At various points off the
shore of Queen Victoria park the velocity
of the river current was found to be eight
to seventeen feet per second."
DIVING INTO VAST DEPTHS
Extraordinary Feats Performed
Fnnions Divers I nder High
At what depth can a diver carry out his
functions? How long can he remain under
the surface? What Is the effect of high air
pressures oa the human system? One well
known firm of submarine engineers limits
tho depth of descent to twenty-live fathoms,
or, say, 150 feet. But operations have been
carried out at greater depths than this, and
perhaps the greatest distance below the
surface at which a diver has succeeded in
working la thirty-four fathoms, or 204 feet.
This was accomplished by James Hooper,
who descended to the ship Cape Horn, aunk
off PlchlUanque, South America, and sus
tained a pressure of eighty-eight and a
half pounds on every square inch of his
Another remarkable feat was that of
Alexander Lambert, who recovered JUiO.OOO
In gold coin from tha steamship Alphonso
XII, sunk off Point Gando, Grand Canary,
In nearly thirty fathoms of water, the ac
tual depth of the treasure room being
twenty-six and two-thirds fathoms, or 160
feet. This man also performed the daring
feat of stopping the flooding of the Severn
tunnel when a door in the drainage tunnel
had been left open. The door was situated
a quarter of a mile distant from the shaft,
but equipped in hia diving dress he crept
that distance through a narrow passage full
of water and closed the door. This plucky
act enabled the pumpa to overcome the
volume of water which waa flooding the
working and allowed the completion of the
tunnel to be carried out.
A further Interesting case of deep diving
is that of Angel Erostarbe, who succeeded
in recovering silver bars valued at $45,000
from the steamer Skyro, sunk off Cape
Flrdsterre in over thirty fathoma In this
case the diver had to blow away portions
of the vessel with dynamite before he could
reach the treasure chamber. Three dives
per diem were frequent and as many as
flv descents were made in one day. The
maximum period under water waa twenty

French scientist has gone so far as to

also eald to excite digestion, owing to the
great quantity 'of oxygen carried Into the

VALDOSTA. Oa.. Deo. 23.-A report
reached here this morning from Ewlng, be
tween Fargo and St. Herge, the new colony
town, that a crowd of negroes tried to
mob a white man who was manager of a
large turpentine still at that place last
night. He barricaded himself and opened
fire upon them, killing five men and two
women and wounding seven others.
Another report from Ewlng states It was
a negro riot In which the killing occurred
last evening, a large number of negroes
being at a frolic. A general fusillade
occurred. Two were killed Instantly, three
were fatally wounded and eight others
were more or less seriously wounded by
bullets. Several women were among the
wounded and one woman was killed.

O words of Joy by angels borne
Down to the nhepherds lowly;
t'p your voices.
With all heaven
For the Son to mankind given.
O mortals, 'tis a God. and yet,
A Son of man by trials met,
And earthly sorrows feeling;
Be glad, for He has come to seek
The wretched and the poor and weak.
Ills love for us revealing;
To the Father
He shall gather
Sons and daughters
Erring by the stagnant waters.
His tears shall for our suffering fall,
His tender spirit help us all.
Our love and faith Increasing;
His hand shall show the open door
And in our cup of sorrow pour
The balm of grace unceasing;
That the spirit
Joys eternal may Inherit.
He comes for our redemption sent
To palace and to lowlv tent
With mercy 'never hidden;
Our shepherd He will ever be
That we may follow trustfully
And do whst He has bidden;
Till the morrow.
Free from sorrow,
When we gather
In His image round the Father.

POLICE BALK AT THE CRADLE
C'hleaao Women Ask Impossible
Favors of the City's PolMe
The nolieemen in Chicago's suburb of
Evanston are not living up to the ideal
set before them by club women of the
suburb. Ask the women. They came to n
realization of the depressing facts last
week. They luid hoped that policemen
w.nild be available to mind their babies
while I hey did their Christmas shopping.
Sadly they were disillusioned.
It all grew out of an address made by
Mrs. George Ripley before the F.utre Nous
eluh. Mrs. Ripley said that In a model
town like Evanston policemen should be
peifect gentlemen and available for any
purpose, such na guarding houses aid
children while their parents were absent.
In the discussion that followed it whs
urged that the Evanston policemen weie
xceptlunul in every way cud could be In
trusted safely with such duties.
Mrs. Ripley's views took deep root In tho
fertile soil. They bore their first fruit hi
the case of Mrs. William Miller, 3.i Demp
ster utreet. She wanted to do some holiday
shopping and Hhe called Sergeant Rubo on
the telephone and asked that a policeman
be sent to her house Immediately.
"We're pretty short on men Just now,"
begin the seraeant.
Oh, I need one so badly," a persuasive
voice at the other end of the wire Inter
rupted, "and I want you to send me tho
nicest one you have."
Rubo, without further delay, called up
Policeman Bond, the only man on re
serve. He had been working nights and
was aroused from sleep. He went grum
bllngly to the Miller residence.
Oh, I'm so glad they sent a good looking
one," said the matron, as she aw the
Immaculate, white-gloved policeman stand
ing statesquely with his hand touching his
cap. "I'm glad you haven't red hair, too;
he always cries when he sees a man with
red hair. He's right In here," beckoning
to Bond to follow her into a room opening
on the hall.
'You see my maid left yesterday and I
have to buy my Christmas presents, and
I knew you would be glad to come." Her
words still poured out and the policeman
grew even more mystified. She led him to
'Am I to pinch de kid, or what am I to
do?" said Bond, wonderliigly.
"Oh, mercy, no!" exclaimed Mrs. Miller.
He'd scream. All you have to do Is to
watch him and see that he doesn't crawl
through the rungs of the cradle and hang
himself. Why, only yesterday I was read
ing of a baby" but the policeman was
movingto a telephone across the hall.
'If you're going to root me out of my
bunk to go and tend babies, you'll have to
get another copper," he told Sergeant
Mrs. Miller couldn't understand why the
policeman left so quickly after hanging up
the 'phone and why the desk sergeant re
fused to talk to her when she again called
up the police station. Chicago Tribune
POPE CHANGES LEO'S CUSTOM
o Collective Reception, to Members
of Sacred College to Be
ROME. Dec. 23. Contrary to the custom
of the late Pope Leo XIII, the pope has
abolished the collective reception of the
members of the sacred college for the ex
change of Christmas greetings. He says
the ceremony would oblige him to deliver a
speech at a fixed date, which is not always
desirable, especially when, as in now tho
case, he has an encyclical on the Franco
Vatican situation ready. He Is waiting
for the publication of the regulations gov.
ernlng the operation of the bill separating
church and state In France, after which
the encyclical will be issued. Consequently
the cardinals today went separately to
present their homage to the pope, who said
he felt quite well and that he had already
received many sympathetic Christmas mes
sages, especially from Ireland and America.

HERRING VESSEL SEIZED
Canada Puts New Construction, on
Fishing Law Since Secretary
Root Made Statement.
ST. JOHNS. N. F.. Dec. 23. An Inter
change of cablegrams respecting tha al
leged seizure of an American herring fish
ing vessel by the Newfoundland authori
ties has developed the fact that the vessel
referred to Is the Gloucester fishing
schooner Tattler, which was seized at
Sydney, N. 8. W., a week ago by the
Canadian authorltiea for shipping New
foundland fishermen there to engage in
herring Ashing without paying the Can
adian license fee. Previous to this year
the Canadian government regarded tho
herring vessels as traders and exacted no
license fee, but Secretary Root having re
cently declared an American shipping
register carried with it a fishing certifi
cate, Canada has decided to compel ths
payment of a license fee. The Newfound
land authorities are not responsible for
this development at all.
