Z'fi.E .F/KJS LADDIES
Put Through a Course of SproutsThey
Acquit l^ui-elves Creditably.
The inspection of the fire department
made by request of Chief Strong and com
menced on Saturday, was completed yester
day. In the absence of Alderman Smith,
Mr. Strong requested Alderman Dreis to act
as one of the judges. Engine and hose cart
No. 3 were given a similar trial to those
given on Saturday, the hose cart laying 500
feet of p'ps connecting with the engine, un
coupling and adjusting the nozzle. This was
done very neatly in fifty-two seconds
twenty-three seconds less time than the Bame
cart did the work on Saturday. The engine
was then tested with the following result:
5 pourd- sfeim in 1 minute 20 second*.
10 pounds steam in 3 minutes 55 seconds.
15 pousds atoam in 4 minutes 40 seconds.
19 pounds steam in 5 minute*.
Time. Pressure of 6team. Of water.
10 min. 55 lbs. 45 IUF.
15 min. 110 lbs.
The water gauge being out of order, no
farther registry was taken. As the wind blew
considerably from the north, the engine was
allowed to throw the stream down the street
toward" the market. This gave her the ad
vantage of the down prade and the wind, and
with these advantages she succeeded
in making a distance of 190
feet. The jet, however, was a
very poor and scattering onethe water
scattering immediately on leaving the nozzle.
The nozzle used was one inch in diameter.
The Hook and Ladder company were then
put on their trial. They proceeded to the
German Catholic church, whoro they were
first required to raise a 60-foot extension
ladder, which was done on the first trial in
1 minute, 40 seconds on the second trial it
wMvaccomplished in 1 minute, 30^ seconds.
It was then
Ti ised for the third time arid a
man ascended to the top in 1 minute, 54
seconds. The ladder weighed 580 pounds
and was handled by only six menit was usual
to have ten men for the same ladder. The time
was considered excellent by old firemen, who
applauded heartily as the man grasped the
topmost round. A 35 feet ladder was then
raised and a man sent to the top in 30
secondsconsidered a splendid exhibition of
agility. Two 28 feet ladders were next raised
in the middle of the street, a man as
cended each an I braced them together in 28
seconds. This concluded the trial, which
eveiyone competent to judge considered to
be most satisfactory. The judges will re

Opening of an Entertainment for the
The Catholic Orphan fair was opened last
night at Armory hall. There is never a very
large attendance on the first night of a fair,
for the people are so accustomed to find a
general state of unreadiness it the openings
of exhibitions and fairs that they are getting
into the habit of deferring their visits till the
last daj B. Another reason for the small at
tendance is the change of location, the fair
having been in the past held at Music hall,
and many persons who would attend
were not, aware that it was to be
held at Armory hall. Notwithstanding the
comparatively small attendance on the first
evening, there is no doubt that this fair for
the orphans will be a success, as it always
is. Its object recommeuds it so strongly to
all peoples and creeds. To provide for the
fatherless children and motherless wail's is
the foremost duty of Christianity and the
first obligation of humanity. The fair to
day at Armory hall, Wabashaw street near
Eighth, will be well worth visiting. There
will be at raction8 for every oneyoung men
and maidens, old men and children will find
Sjmtthing of inteiest to them. The differ
ent tables are well filled with use
ful and ornamental articles, and the
refreshment rooms, as usual, are bountifully
supplied, and there is a complete galaxy of
beauty ready to administer to every want of
the visitor. A gentleman or lady lunching
or supping at these tubles will not enjoy thu
delicacies placed before them less from the
thought that every half dollar they spend in
the hall will go far toward feeding and cloth

The Reports of the Ladles' Committees
Who Solicited Aid for tbe Yellow fever
The ladies of St. Paul, who have greatly
interested themselves for the great benefit
of the yellow fever sufferers, held a meeting
at the residence of Mrs. McSIasters on
Fourth street. The object of the meeting
was to receive reports regard
ing the receipts and expenses attending
Gen. Gibbons' late lecture, delivered under
their auapices. Quite a number of ladies
were in attendance, but they were not pre
pared with their reports. The expenses of
hiring the Opera House, gas, etc had not
been ascertained. Time was asked, and
granted, to prepare these necessary
reports. The informal statement was
made, that $305 had been collected for the
lecture, from this the expenses would have
to be deducted. Tee ladies have not com
pleted their good work, and their mission,
though they have given with a full hand, is
not deemed to be ended yet. The stricken
South needs continued help. Thousands of
poor are in -need of cl- thing. The ladies
are going to serVe in charity's cause still far
ther to help supply this want.
A Bolting Horse.
A runaway, two broken wagons, a badly
mashed up boy, two dozen broken bottles of
election beer, all on Jackson street, yester
day afternoon. The beer wagon was driven
by a boy named Chris, and belonged to
Haggeumiller, No. 83 Jackson street. Short
ly before the accident, the Haggenmiller out
fit was sent up Jackson street to deliver two
dozen bottles of beer. When the horse
neared Sixth street he became frightened,
and plunged off on the dead run. The boy
driver lost entire control of the ani
mal. Just in front of Manning's
grocery store, No. 130 Jackson street, the
runaway collided with Manning's wagon.
An upset followed, the boy was thrown out,
and both vehicles badly shattered. The
driver of Haggenmiller's wagon was picked
up and taken home. Dr. Murphy was called
in to attend him. He found that the boy
had recti.e.l severe biuiaes aboat the knte,
his right ieg was badly sprained, and he had
received other contusions of a piinfnl but
not dangerous nature. The probability is
that he will be kept in-doora for several
days. Both wagons have to be carted off to
a wheelwright's shop for repairs. The horses
escaped without injury, beyond the fright.
Canadiani Friends of Bi!l Kine, in Trouble
Officer Kouleau brought in two awfully
drunk men, yesterday morning about break
fast time. They were found on Jackson
street, and swore they had just gotten in
from Minneapolis. They pretended to be
Canadian acquaintances of Bill King's, and
were maudlin indignant at being run in.. At
a later hour they were brought up before
Judge Flint, and gave the name of John
Sullivan and John Conners. A rougher,
harder looking pair could scarcely be pulled
out the human pack, than these two. They
each got a $ 5 fine, or four days on the stone
pile. They protested in one voice against
the tyranny of the law which forced them to

Change In the Fort irnelUne Bridge Con
tract, and Time Extended Until Jane,
The bridge commission met yesterday
morning at the county auditor's office. There
were present Commissioners Dawson, Lin
deke, Knapheide and Cochran. Engineer
Sewall and County Attorney Rogers were also
in attendance. The secretary read minutes
of previous meeting, from which it would
appear that the original contract had been
modified, changing limestone to sandstone at

GAME OF THE THREE.
And Ho it Beats the Crowd Every Time.
Three of a kind beat two pair.. The three
put their heads together, and after due con
sideration proceeded to beat Hattie McBride
out of $45 for being a femme de joie. She
was not joyful over the amount assessed
against her, and the disruption of the bonds
of love heretofore existing between her and
that kid, Fred Hurst. She can stay in the
town if she leaves Freddy alone, and though
lonely, she has promised to suppress her
aged love for the springtime youth.

Case No. .63 of the civil calendar, entitled:
Joseph W. Smythe vs. The Trustees of the

S. L. Pierce appeared for plain

to plaintiff's property, a lot adjoining the
ohurch, by the excavation of the structure.
Damages claimed, $1,000.
A jury was empahneled, and the examina
tion of witnesses followed.
During the trial of the above case, the
court took up the matter of Richard Slater
vs. The St. Paul Workingmen's Building so

A Story with Sequel.
It is better to have loved and lost, than
never to have loved at all, which may or may
not be the truth, according to the circum
stances of the case. If the first glance
eventuates into a union of heurts and a union
of hands, extremely proper the denoue
ment. If the union of hearts alone b'appena,
and the union of hands is omitted, there's
trouble in the family. Such a trouble has
come to Mary F. Edwards. She doth aver
that the glance shot athwart tho intervening
space from her through the
windows of her soul to Charles Hayden. A
response was made, and all was as happy as
the sunshine in the springtide of the year,
until the 15th day of February, A. D. 1878.
And thenand then. She attributes her
trouble to Charles H-iyden, but places a part
of the blame on Minneapolis, Hennepin
county, Minnesota. For it was there
she loved not wisely, but too well.
The above is the simple story. The sequel
is to come, but as an introductory chapter,
she complains to the proper court, and wants
Charles Hayden to show cause,
Why thus do youflymt-,
Why thus do yon deny me?
For her trouble is the offspring of his
allurement'. To these things doth she
verily make affidavit.
HHT z, the Magicin.
The entertainment given at tbe Opera
House last evening demonstrated that Bartz,
the magician, keeps faith with the public.
Everything he promised was produced, and
more too, and everything was accomplished
in a masterly way. There were individual
tricks worth the whole admission fee,
notably the great cage trick. The professor
takes-a wire cage in his band, his assistant
puts in it a bird, and the professor advances
to the front of the stage, holding up the cage
in view of all, and in a trice cage and bird
both vanish. The pile of things
he takes out of a common Bilk hat
bonoved from the audience is marvellous
fifty silver enps, scores of Chinese lanterns,
lighted, doll babies, cards by the thousand,
handkerchiefs without limit, and last a ful.'-
grown gentleman of the burnt cork profes.
sion, who gives an excellent entertainment,
the great feature of which is his performance
on the cartenetts. The presents given away
were numerous and goodnot trashy jew
elry or burnt sawdust pencils, but vases,
toilet sets, tea, flour, plated pickle jars, card
baskets, china, and even ladies' shawls. Fred
Smith got a huge basketcousin to that in
which the merry wives conveyed Sir John to
the riverfilled with groceries sufficient to
serve a moderate family for a month there
were tea and coffee, and parcel on parcel of
crackers, sugar, soap, corn starch,
and *even brushes and a washboard.
Frank found himself in great good
luck and danced with glee, much to the
merriment of the audience. J. G. Wielde
obtained a very fine silver castor fitted with
cut glass and Miss Jennie Simons drew a
handsome velvet case of silver knives and
forks. The audience expressed themselves
as well pleased with the performance. It
was announced that this evening there will
be a change of programme and a more val
uable distribution of gifts.

To the Editor of the Globe.
Just why this "sockdolager" fails to con
vince me is this: Valentine has charge of
the elevator and is on trial. The millers
have charge of the grades and are on trial.
They give figures which tend to exculpate
themselvesfigures which nobody knows to
be truefigures which are'not verified either
by any certificate or oath of themselves or
book-keeper. Now the only question is, are
they lying are they capabU- of lying? If a
man will steal, will he not lie to clear him
These very respectable gentlemen are
probably all in the same ring. They are all
charged with the crime of robberyin a
genteel way, of course. Is it too much to
suspect that they would lie to clenr them
selves? They are vouched for by Bill King,
Jo Wheelock and Driscoll.

To the Editor of the New York Sun: "f
On the 9th of November, 1876,1 was com
missioned by tbe National Democratic com-
mittTe to go to Florida, and left that night.
The object of my visit was to aid our friends
there in obtaining a true vote of the State,
and, if possible, a true count by the return
ing board. I was authorized to use such
means as might be necessary for procuring
the attendance of witnesses, and such other
proper expenses as might be required to at
tain that end. A few minutes before my de
parture a member of the National commit
tee presented me to a gentleman about to
leave on the same irain with me, whose ac
quaintance with Florida politicians, he said,
might be of use to me. I left that'night,
but failed to connect at Richmond with the
through train. On reaching Weldon I found
a telegram from Col. Pelton, which read
ai.out as follows:
Hold no communication with the per
son to whom you were introduced in the
committee room before leaving here. Writ-
I had not seen the gentleman from the
time I left New York until about to take the
train to Weldon. My suspicions of him
being thus aroused, I endeavored to have as
little communication with him as possible.
He was inclined to talkI only listened.
At Wilmington a similar telegram reached
me, and the same awaited me at Charleston,
Savannah and Jacksonville. At the latter
place I found the expected letter from Col.
Pelton, cautioning me against holding any
intercourse with this or any other person
who might broach the subject of using
With these cautions, I was not surprised
when my traveling companion began to en
lighten me upon the efficacious use to which
he could apply a very large sum of money,
and he claimed to be able to secure from
the returning board a favorable deci
sion of tho result. The proposition was
so absurd, and the trap (if it was so intend
ed) so manifest, I enjoyed it, and said I was
not authorized to purchase returning boards.
The gentleman and I separated at Live Oak.
he going to Tallahassee and I to Jackson
ville. On leaving me he urged me to con
sider his proposition, and I replied as before.
I remained at Jacksonville Oi ly a day or
two, going to Tallahassee, and was accompa
nied by Col. Call, a member of the national
committee by Gen. P. M. B. Young, Col.
Lanton, of Georgia: and some gentlemen of
Florida, whose names I cannot now recall.
At Live Oak we met Messrs. Marble, Biddlo,
Sellers, and other gentlemen invited by the
national committee to visit Florida during
At some station between Live Oak and
Tallahassee, where we dined. I again met the
person, who was returning from Tallahassee
to Jacksonville to hunt me up, as he aaid,
and, of course, be renewed his opositions,
and again assured him my authority was
confined to aiding the Democrats of Florida
in obtaining a true, fair count. I ould not
persuade him, however, of it, and he entered
into particulars as to the division of the
sum. It was to be divided into six uuequal
parts. then assured me he had obtained
full authority, and would meet me again. 1
rejoined our friends, and to several of them
I repeated the proposition just made, which
wfls enjoyed as a joko. I was frequently an
nojed during my stay in Florida by over
tures from tbe same source, none of which
did I communicate to New York. I saw
nothing more of this person in Tallahassee
except on the streets.
A night or two before the conclusion of
the count, a gentleman called at tho house
where Mr. Marble was staying, and requested
most urgently to see Mr. Marble or Mr.
Coyje, as he had an important communica
tion to make. Mr. Marble was absent, and
Mr. Saltonstall canie to tbe bott 1 where I
was staying, anu told me cf the urgent busi
ness this gentleman said he had to csmniuui
cate, and requested me to see him but on
his describing him, I found it to be the same
person who had so persistently followed me
with his proposition, nd I declined to see
him. I shall not soon forget Mr. Salton
stall's indignatiou, and Mr. Woolley's, also.
This is the only proposition I ever heard of
while in Florida, and this was ridiculed by
us all there.
I disclaim the translations of the telegrams
imputed to me by the Tribune over thesig
natnre of "Max," mere especially the one
containing the words "nothing but cash will
answer." No such telegram waB ever sent
by me, and no telegram was sent by me other
than upon the business I was empowered to
transact. I never wrote or saw any tele
gram from Messrs. Wooley or Marble until
those imputed to these gentlemen appeared
in the Tribune, and though in a daily and
hourly intercourse with them, I never heard
any illusion to such being sent, or of any
proposition to purchase tbe vote of the State
other tha the one above described.

A PERSECUTED HOUSEHOLD.
A Good Catholic Family in Ohio Tormented
by Spooks What Happened to a Priest.
|Akron, O., Special to Cincinnati Enquirer.]
A most remarkable phenomenon has been
developed in the family of Michael Metzler,
a hard-working plasterer of this city. Sev
eral days since his family moved into a brick
house in the suburbs, near that portion of
the city called "Hell's Half Acre." Shortly
afterwards some members of the family be
gan to be assaulted with small pebble-stones,
hurled by invisible agents. These nearly al
ways hit some one of the family or some
person in their presence. Over one hun
dred ac fifty pebbles have been picked up,
yet so far there is no solution to the
Father Brown, a German Catholic, was
called in to exorcise the spirits, but after
concluding bis services, a couple of tbe
stones dropped at his feet, creating an
astonishment in bis clerical brain that has
kept him in bewilderment ever since. The
stones are small pebbles, the largest not the
size of a hen's egg. They fall dead on the
floor without bounding a particle or rolling
even an inch.
An Inquirer reporter visited the house
yesterday afternoon, last evening, and again
to-day. Ou the first vinit Mrs. Metzler and
her aged mother wire at home while the
former with tearful eyes was telling her
story, a stone dropped from the ceiling be
fore the eyes of the reporter and his com
panions, and struck her on the arm. A
neighbor called ic and the reporter walked
to the door with Mrs. M., when a stone fell
and hit him. His companion say she saw it
drop from the ceiling.
Mrs. Metzier's mother relates that while
driving a cow to pasture#she was hit by toe
stones fifteen times a little girl, standing in
the cellar stairway, was hit by a stone com
ing up from the cellar. At night the stones
give warning their coming by a peculiar
whistling sound. Hundreds of persons have
gone to witness the phenomenon, and every
possible solution has been sought, but with
out success. The family is so frightened
that they hardly eat their meals. They are
devout Catholics, and regard tho affair as a
While at the house to-day, with several
other persons, your reporter heard three raps
at the door, and a quick search outside re
vealed one who could possibly have
rapped. The family have tried to escape tbe
stoning by going to other houses, but they
continue to be rained upon tbem.
