AN OLD SVTTJ.JCU GOXE.
The Death of John K. Irvine, Esq. Last
At 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon the serious
illnesB of Hon. John K. Irvine terminated in
death. This event, though not une: ected by
intimate friends for a day or two past, will
cause deep and poignant sorrow in this com
mnnity, in which ho has borne such a promi
nent part from the very infancy of St. Paul
a part entering so minutely into the settlement
and growth of the city, that a detailed account
of Mr. Irvine's life during the years of hLs res
idence would bo a history of St. Paul.
The sickness that resulted in Mr. Irvine's
deatli was erysipelas, with which he was .k .u
Wednesday night a week ago. At first LLe
disease was not considered dangerous, and is
late as Wednesday no real fears wcrecntcrkiiii-d
as to the result,, but yesterday morning the
symptoms rapidly changed for the worse,
during the day he sank rapidly, expiring :is
above stated, at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
John li. Irvine, was born in Dansville, Nr.v
York, November 8, 1812, and was therefore in
theGGth year of his age. When a boy he work:
at blacksmithing, but, about the age of 17, he
removed to Carlisle, Pa., where ho learned the
trade of plastering. I 1831 he was married \o
Miss Nancy Gulbraith. afterwards return'
to Dansville and resumed bla.-ksmitffin/ in
1837 he emigrated west, living three years in
Green Bay, Wis., when in lb40 he continued
his westward journey to Prairie a Ohien, th it
State. Here he began to hear of St. Paul, and
so strongly was he impressed with what lie
heard that the latter part of the same win
ter ho made an observation anl
business trip, bringing in a sleigh a load of
grooeries and other goods for sale. The outlook
realizing his expectations, Mr. Irvine deter
mined to locate here. therefore purchased
of Joseph Pondo a part of what was th
known as the o)d Phelan claim, on which v..is
a squared and matched log building, and
which, with some additions and improv-incuts
made by Mr. Irvine, constituted his dwelling
for several years. The land purchase amouaud
to about 3UI) acres, and embraced what is no .v
some of the most valuable property in the ci
Subscmieiilly, about 1815, Mr. Irvine pur
chased the Mortimer claim, and iu 1S48 enter,
the land, which had then been surveyed, in the
land oihee in Stillwater.
Mr. Irvine has been one of our most actro
and usoi'ul members during his thirty-lire years
residence. The amplo property which his for
ciz'it prompted him to secure and hold, is now
oue of the finest in the city. Th proceeds of
most of it which has been Fold, has been rein
vested in erecting substantial business block:*,
mills, warehouses and other buildings which now
stand as a credit to the enterprise of theownev.
Though of a retiring disposition, and not .e
who would naturally delight in party etril'e,
Mr. Irvine was forced by his interests iu the
early yearn of hip residence to tako a more or
less active part in tho various contests of tho
days for positions within the gift of the people,
and thus we find him a member of the second
session of the State Legislature as a Senator i'i
18G2-3, an alderman of the first city council
under tho new charter of 1854, in which
he continued to serve until 1857, and
in 1860 he was elected county commissioner,
in all of which positions ho acquitted himself
with credit to himself and his constituents.
Mr. Irvine leaves a wife, ono son, and six
daughters, viz. Mrs. Georgo W. TurnbiiH,
now residing at Austin, Texas Mrs. Dr. Yv'il
ley, of Bay field, Wis. Mrs. C. Jones, Mrs.
E. Gorman, Mrs. Major Killier, and Mrs.
Belle Irvine, of this city. I is not known .it
this writing when the funeral will take place,
but probably not until Sunday, delay being
had to allow the attendance of Capt, J. B.
Irvine, who will arrive here Satnrday from

Violence at Mounds View.
At Monnds View a fraoaB occurred of a seri
ous nature, in which a man named J. Long sus
tained a fracture of the arm and other injuries
and was in imminent danger of his life. I
appears that J. Long bought at Monnds View
forty acres of land with right .of way through
the property of one Fabrienski. A day or
two since Long proceeded to remove
fence on Fabrienski's property, th
latter refusing to concede to him the
privilege ho had purchased. Fabrinski
had Long arrested, bttt ho was released Wed
nesday. Yesterday he went again and en
deavored to move obstructions from his right
of way by pulling down the fence, when
Fabrienski rushed upon him with a piece of
cord wood, and dealt him a murderous blow.
Long dodged and tried to guard himself with
his arm. Th blow descended with crushing
force upon his arm and shoulder, felling him
to the earth and fracturing the arm badly.
Dr. Mattocks took charge of tho injured man
and a warrant was issned for the arrest of
Fabrienski, which will be served this morning.

ECHOES FROM THE PHONOGRAPH.
What Mrs. Jlarstinglo-w Heard, After
Three Day's Absence from Ilome.
It happened that Mrs. Barstinglov/ was
going down to Keokuk for a few days, and
Mr. Barstinglow was inconsolable. At one
time he protested that she should not go he
could not enduro the lonesome house during
her absence. And then again he declared
that if she must go, he would neglect his
office, and let-his business go to the bow
wows, and he would go with her. At length
however, she persuaded him to be reason
able, and on her repeated assurance that
she would not remain away longer
than three days, he consented to let her go.
He even bought her ticket, and ordered the
carriage and paid for it two days ahead, lest
his resolution should give way, and he should
forbid her going from him. And from that
time till the morning of her departure Mr.
Barstinglow spoke in subdued tones, and
moved about with the air of a man whose
heart was Vmvied under mountains of grief.
Before she left the house, Mrs. Barsting
low set the phonograph in the sitting room,
behind the clock. Then she kissed 1KY dis
consolate husband, and begged him to pre
serve his precious life for her sake while she
was away, and then she was gone.
Every day, during her three days' visit in
the Gate City, she received a letter from her
mourning husband, begging her to come
back and telling her how lonesome he was
without her, and how like a grave the empty
house seemed, and how the hours dragged
over his aching heart with leaden feet. And
in three days she came home, and filled the
solemn" house with sunlight and laughter
The evening after her return to Burlington
she took down the phonograph,
"I wonder," she said, "what we said last
in its hearing? It must have been something
while we were discussing my visit. Or may
be it has cansyht some of your poor, longing
moaning while I was away."
And then she turned the crank.
"Lord no," croaked the phonogropher, in
tones of hearty re-assnrance. No danger of
that she's safe in Keokuk for three days
saw her safely off, myself, this morning.
Light your cigar while I light another lamp
and make the. room look cheerful."
""Why," exclaimed Mrs. Barstinglow, in a
countenance of amazement, "what on earth
is it saying?"
"Oh, some nonsense some of your visitors
have talked into it some time or other,"
replied her husband, nervously, "people
talk all kinds of stuff into a phonograph,
you know. They say anything for talk.*'
Mrs. Barstinglow, looking only half con
vinced, gave the crank another turn.
"This is devilish good whiskey, Barsty,"
ejaculated the machine, very earnestly.
"Yon don't get it in Burlington,.do you?"
Mrs. Barstinglow gave a little shriek.
My dear," said her husband, looking now
quite as worried as he had looked when he
was begging her not to go to Keokuk, "put
it away somebody has had it out in the
stable, and it might say something perfectly
shocking, you know. Put it away."-
But Mrs. Barstinglow, upon whom the
spirit of investigation had descended with
great power, gronnd away, and the phono
graph, in a voice marvellously like her
husband's, went remorselessly cm.
Not much they don't make this kind
now. It's spme old Monongahela, copper
distilled, that Mrs. Barstinglow's mother
gave her three years ago. Fill up, there's
plenty of it, and I can replace it with any
kind of beverage when it's gone. The old
girl won't know the difference."
Mrs. Barstinglow felt herself turning to
stone, but the next turn of the crank
brought out an uproarious
"Ha, ha, ha! Here's to the o. g!"
That fanned her cheeks into a flame.
"For mercy's sake! Malachi Barstinglow,"
she shrieked, Vwhat does this mean?"
Mr. Barstinglow now looked as though
he really did wish she had never gone to
"It's just as tell you," he said, with an
effort to look unconcerned that was like a
humorous book, a colossal success, so far as
its utter failure was concerned. "Somebody
has been talking all sorts of nonsense into it
just for talk's pake. How else could it get
hold of such dreadful stuff in our dear little
Mrs. Barstinglow didn't say, but she
turned away and the phonograph asked
"Throw around for the deal?"
She thought she would faint, but she
didn't, and the pitiless machine proceeded
to remark, with a variety of voices:
"It's my age."
"You'll have to straddle that blind if you
"Give me two cards,"
"I'll see your little one and raise yon a
"Push the bottle this way, Ben."
"Ain't you going to stay in, Harry?"
"Can't stay in on a pair of sizes."
"Two small pair, kings to head."
"Tens and deuces. Take the pot."'
"Barsty, get us somethiag to eat. Old girl
left the cupboard keys, didn't she?"
"Lord, yea: you told her I was going to

keep bach at home to save expenses and keep
out of bad company."
"Ha, ha, ha!.. Hot ho!! ho!!!"
"Oh,"yelied.Mr Barstinglow, unable to
contain himself any longer, while his wife,
more dead than alive, leaned over the phone
graph and ground away at the crank in a
dazed kind of a way. "Oh, keep it np!
That's right! Keep her agoing! Grind it
all out! Dog gone the diabolical piece
of black art "and the vile assassin that
invented it! Keep it np! That's right!
Bclievo a senseless diabolical piece of mon
strous mechanism rather than your husband.
Keep her a going. Keep it up
And Mrs. Barstinglow did keep it np. She
kept it np, and listened to that phonograph
swear axd shout and howl she heard it
shriek "Oh, my eye I my eye She heard
it tell some one to let some one else "have it
again in the same place she heard it
warn somebody to "hold his head
over tho stove hearth, and not
let his nose bleed on the carpet," and at last,
as it assured her very thickly and with some
difficulty, that it was "a ban' of jorry goof
fuf-fuf-fellows," and that it "won'-hic-won'
g'ome till morning," she ground it into si
lence, and sank back, speechless and breath
less, while Mr. Barstinglow took the phono
graph out into the back yard and 6mashed it
into so many and such small fragments that
it couldn't reproduce even a steamboat whis
THE RED COMMUNE.
Jlow the Ceremonies of Good Friday Were
Mocked by Wild Frenchmen in Kew.Yorh
A Meeting at Which a Friest Would
Have Had a Lively Time.
[New York World.]
The annual Good Friday banquet of the
society of the refugees of the oommune,
held for the purpose of expressing the con
tempt of that body for the religious observ
ances of the Christian church, took place
last evening at the restaurant of Citizen
Clouzot, No. 1$6 Bleecker street. The ban
quet hall was decorated with hangings of
very red banners and the flags of th com
mune. One bore the inscription,
"Vive la Commune another bore the in
scription, "Pas de devoirs, pas de droits,"
Pas de droits, pas de devoirs," and "So-
ciette des Befugies de la commune." The
table was spread with red napkins most of
the guests wore red in some form or the oth
er, and the chairman, Citizen Mathelot, wore
a red shirt. All the guests were in theii
working day clothes. Sixteen in all sat down
to table, and nearly two hours were engaged
in eating and drinking.
Each guest ate heartily, and drank as much
vin ordinaire and cognac as he could hold.
The effect of this was noticed as soon as the
cloth was removed, when Citizen Mathelot
rose and delivered the opening address of
the evening. He was greeted with loud ap
plause, and pulled up the collar of hia red
shirt, and, taking from his mouth the clay
pipe wnich he held there, he said: "I do
not rise in the character of president,
for we have no president, and
need none. We are all equal. I rise to tell
you why we are here we are hero to attest
our hatred of the prejudices which make of
this a fast day for the poor, while the priests
and the rich feast and grow fat. "What are
these priests? They are the assassins of
tho people tho enemies of humanity rascals
who always side with the oppressors against
the oppressed, with the persecutor against
his victims. [Applause.] The priest has
ever been the enemy of libertyhot only the
Catholic priest, but the Jewish and Protes
tant priests as well. In 1851, when the coup
d'etat came in Franco, the Archbishop Gul
bert offered the revolutionists the use of the
church of Notre Dame as a place of refuge
from the troops, but as soon as the coup
d'etat had succeeded, he opened his doors
to sing a Te Deum to Napoleon, and thus al
lowed his victims to fall into the hands of
the assassins. So here in 1857, when the
men were marching to the. city hall crying
for bread, it was the priest Henry Ward
Beecher, the putative husband of Mrs. Til
ton, who advised them to submit to the mili
tary, although the board of aldermen were
forced to vote $2,000,000 for work on Cen*
tral park to relieve the distress. [Applause.]
This same Beecher it was who afterward de
clared that a workingman can live on $1 a
day. [Cries of "seventy-five cents'"] Ah.
these priests! I remember when I had a
daughter instead of having her baptized by
a priest, I gave her a name and baptized her
with wine. A priest afterwards came to me
and said he would come and baptize her. I
said: 'If you come as a man I will welcome
you, but if you come as a priest I will throw
you out of the window.' [Loud applause.]
Citizens, we do not want these priests. If
we get married let us be married by the
mayor. If we must baptize our children let
us do it oureelvss and in wine, and not let a
priest throw his dirty water over its. head.
[Loud applause.] ""Those who do not feel
and act in this way are overinfluenced by
their wives or their mother-in-law. Let us
feast when these priests fast, fast when they
feastfor the church and its priests are al
ways on the side "of property but sometimes
they suffer too, as in the case of M. Darboy."
[Loud applause, during which Megy picked
his teeth with his fork and smiled triumph
The next speaker was Citizen Golard, an
old man with little hair and much cravat.
He said: "Citizens, we are here, a3 Citizen
Mathelot has said, to express our contempt
for the priests. This is right. Take Che
case of the archbishop who recently forbade
the members of the workingmen's party to
enter the church in San Francisco. Ah, if I
could have that bishop by the hair. [Loud
applause and wild yells.] It is time that we,
the advance guard of the people, should
come out boldly and express our feelings to
ward these priests, these assassins of our
rights, these robbers of our means. A priest,
be he Catholic, Protestant, or Jew, is an
enemy of the people. The church is an
enemy and the bishops are the leaders of
the people's enemies." [Loud applause.]
After this address Citizen Megy was called
upon for a toast and said: "Citizens, I pro
pose to you, 'The annihilation of the priests
and all other rascals, and the destiuctiou of
the church.' Drink!" This was drunk with
duo honors amid great enthusiasm, all the
guests gazing at Megy with great admiration.
The colored communist, Citizen,
Corny, next sang a song which
was loudly applauded, and tho
Citizen Leblun sang an ode to spring of a
lively character, prefacing the third verse
with an apology for its religious characterjas
it contained the line:
J'aime ma mere et mon Dieu
"Oh, we are indulgent," exclaimed Megy
"Yes," exclaimed Citizen Mathelot, "go
on we are not so serious as we look."
Citizen Mathelot then sang a revolutionary
ditty, of which the refrain was:
Pou, Pou, Pou.
Pou, Pou, Pou.
This excited a degree of enthusiasm equal
ed only by that created by a song sung by
Megy and entitled "Aux Barricades," of
which the refrain was:
Car, it fant-que tont prix nous en soyons
Citizen Caniare followed with a song of
equivocal character, which was received with
great favor. By this time the claret and
cognac, the red flag, and the speeches had
done their wrok, and a citizens, whose name
was withheld, sang a ditty of such a charac
ter that Mme. Clouzot, who was waiting at
the table, left the room in a hurry and the
audience saluted its vulgar words and more
vulsar refrain with yells of drunken laugh
At its close the reporter left, and Citi
zen Mathelot, leaving his seat at tho head of
the table, followed him into the hall and
asked him to be just in his report. Said the
citizen, in atone of idlm dignity: "Do
not report what we axe, but the principles
that we represent." As the reporter left the
scene roars of laughter were making the
rafters ring at the joke of one of the com-,
pany, which was much too blasphemous to
be printed here.

"Yes, Fred, you have certainly been very
attentive," said Lizzie.
"But, Lizzie, darling, do you love me?
Will you be my wife?"
"Your wife, Fred! Of all things, no! No,
indeed, nor any one else's."
"Lizzie, what do you mean?"
"Just what I say, Fred. I've two married
"Certainly, and Mrs. Hopkins and Mrs.

"So people say but I wouldn't like to stand

"Lizzie, you astonish me."
"Look here, Fred Pve had over twenty
five sleigh rides this winter, thanks to you
and my other gentlemen friends."
Fred winced a little here, whether at the
remembrance of that unpaid livery bill or
the idea of Lizzie sleighing with her other
gentlemen friends, I cannot positively ans
How many do you think my sisters have

sometimes, and I shouldn't like it if I pro

"And then if once in a dog's age he did
condescend to go with me anywhere in the

my way along the slippery places, at the risk
of breaking my neck, he walking along un
consciously by my side. I'm of a dependent,
clinging nature, and I need the protection of
a strong arm."
"Lizzie, thisfis all nonsense."
"I'm the youngest in our family, and per

know it would break my heart to have my
husband vent all the ill-temper which he con

But before Lizzie had concluded, Fred
made for the door, muttering something
"unmentionable to ears polite-''
"There!" exclaimed Lizzie, as the door
closed with a bang. "I knew he was no bet
