When the glory of the sunset fades

According to what has been di
vulged as to the plan, practically
every branch of the Protestant Church
and all the great religious societies
identified with it, are united in the
crusade. It will be a gigantic and
carefully organized effort by ministers
and laymen of Protestant creeds,
working together with denominational
lines obliterated and differences
buried. The leaders banded together
as a national central committee are
now opening- their campaign. The
committee includes a majority of the
leading evangelical clergymen of Great

stantly killed about 2:10 o'clock this
afternoon by Samuel MacDonald, also
of Ohio, recently a disbursing clerk of

himself, and also slashed his throat

Auditor Moms was closeted alone

occurred. and: in trying to make his
escape, he also assaulted the watch
man, Thomas Cusickwith the butt of
his revolver. He was -arrested while
leaving the buiKftoff. Before being
taken into custody, however, he shot
himself in the stomach, and also made
an ugly gash in his throat with a small
penknife. When the officers arrested
him, he was heard to exclaim, "I did
it." I know I'm done for."
An eye witness to the latter part cf
the encounter between tbe two men
stated that upon hearing the sound of
toe snots ne ran into tbe auditor's of

entering the room he beheld the two
men struggling in each other's arms,

up to Morris' breast MacDonald after
firing, again attem pted to get out of
the room, but encountered a number
of clerks and employes, which the
sound of the firing had brought to the
doors, and then turned and fired
again. This is believed to have been
tbe fatal shot. Employes who knew
MacBonald said he had had a griev
ance against Morris who he claimed
was responsible for having his pay re
duced. Others who knew him said
that they could not attribute his deed
to anything but a diseased brain '
from over indulgence in liquor. !
Frank EL Morris was a native of j

popular with some of the subordin

that he was unnecessarily harsh in his
treatment of them and often exacted

these people intend remaining in South

BORROWED ON HIS SALARY.
Difference Between Gettlnsr X;
and Getting: Oat of Debt.
'Apropos of borrowing monev on nna'a
salary," said a prominent merchant of
City, talking of that DOCnliar nhnaa
the loan business, "I am reminded of a
us case that came under mv oba
vatlon net long ago. A young man em
ployed on the clerical stall of a large con
cern here was given a tip on a 'good
T-oing in cotton. It came to him in such
a way that he felt absolutely certain of
cleaning up a nice little sum of money,
and as he bad no funds of his own Just
then he took the liberty of borrowing
$250 from the house. In plain English
he stole $250 from the firm's currant
cash, and when he lost, as ha did, ha
found himself in the deuce of a fix.
"However, he was able to carry things
over without detection for a few days
and in the meantime succeeded in getting
a loan of the necessary sum from a pri
vate money shark. The loan was for six
months, and he agreed to pay 15 per cent
a month, or $475 altogether. That was
pretty steep, of course, but I have known
a dozen cases of extortion almost as bad.
"At the expiration of the six months
the young, man paid tbe $225 interest and
hustled up another $250 loan to lift the
principal. On that second loan I think
he paid 10 per cent a month. At any
te he kept oa borrowing from Peter to
pay Pan! for nearly three years to be
exact 84 months at the cad of which
time he had actually paid more than
$1,250 interest and still owed the original
debt. He had a growing family on his

"During the last year he had fallen in
to the hands of a salary shaver, and even
tually he was prevented by IVtiw from
malring a payment, and on of bis orders
was presented to his employer. Upon
that he made a clean breast of the -whole
transaction, and his boas. Instead of dis
charging him, took np the debt and is let
ting him pay it off a little at a time. This
is an absolutely true story and shows

- By Telegraph to the Horning star.
St. Paul, Minn., December 22. A
suit involving several million dollars,
the value of the telegraph lines along
the route of the Great Northern rail
way, from St. Paul to the Pacific
coast, was decided late this afternoon
by Judge Lochren in the United States
District Court in favor of the defend
ant, the Western Union Telegraph
Company. Its importance, however,

involved, for it was the general under
standing tnat should the railway com
pany have won, all the great railway
systems of the country would at the
expiration of their contracts with the
Western Union Telegraph Company
have claimed the ownership of the
telegraph lines along their right of
way. and either operated them inde
pendently or have formed a consolida
tion which would have been a strong
competitor in the telegraphic field.
