Mr. Timmerman Wants a Systam of In
spection Adopted, Which Account* for
Yesterday's Meeting of tue Board of
The GLOBE yesterday morning contained a
notice for a meeting of the board of trade of
St. Paul at the office of Van Auken &Lange,
at 4 The notice awaken ed the recol
lection of old settlers that at one time in the
dim past, there was an institution started in
St. Paul, and dubbed the board of trade.
Those recalling the event also remembered
that the. institution started vixth a great
flourish of trumpets, and that nearly all the
leadi ng business men of the ci ty were en
rolled in its membership. I was also
remembered that after a fitful exist
enc e, the institution, so far as
the public could see, died the death. Hence
the announcement of a meeting of what was
generally supposed to be a corpse, created
more or less surprise and curiosity. Sharing
in that curiosity a GLOBE reporter repaired
to the designated place at the designated
hour. There be found several live business
men congregated. Piominent aaiong them
was A. Gilbert, Esq.. tendeily caressing a
httle book, which proved to be the constitu
tion and by-laws of the St Paul board of
trade. Some general conversation followod
about wli?at, corn, oats and bailey, (the little
6W iidling biass kettle was not mentioned),
when an mquiiy was made as to the cause
of the meeting. I reply Gilbert stated
that it had been called at th puj'gestion oi
Mr. Timmerman, superintendent the ele
vator, complained that under the pres
ent Bystem of receiving ccarso giamg he wus
unable to do the business eatislactory to
himself, the shipper or purchaser. Corn,
oats and barley were sent for different
parties. N system of inspection had been
fixed for such grains, and he was conse
quently compelled to use his own judgment
in storing it. The elevator was not built on
a scale that would allow a to each
separate shipment. The result was,
thero being no regular established
grades, to be decided by a regulaily appoint
ed and competent inspector, dissatisfaction
was likely to arise. The fixing giades
and the appointment of an inspector was
what was wanted. The gentlemen of the
board present saw the point of Mr. Timmer
man's suggestion, and after a httle informal
conversation proceeded to act upon it by
selecting the following commit to consid
er the matter and report to the board at a
meeting to be held Monday afternoon next
at i o'clock p. M., at the office of Van Auken
& Lange, Fue and Marine build

A meeting of the committee to consider
the matter thus raised, will be held at the
office of Van Auken & Lange at 3 o'clock
this afternoon. A full attendance of the
committee is desired.
WEARY AND WOIIN.
Return of the Wandereis from the Fold.
O Wednesday, the 16th, a special (grape
vine) telegram to the GLOBE from Sauk Cen
tre, announced a mishap to a St. Paul hunt
ing party there the day previous, with the
fact that the paity were then at the depot
trying to negotiate a pass to St. Paul, failing
in which they would be cqmpell ed to make
the trip by Foot & Walker's line. Since
that brief announcement nothing had been
hea id of the party direct up to last night,
and their respective friends were beginning
to feel gieat uneasiness.
Tine, lepoits had been received here of
the sale i two or thice hunting dogs at dif
ferent points between here and Sauk Centre
for cold meat and bread, and these reports,
taken in connection with the GLOBE tele
gram, led to the conclusion that
the hunting party were really and
in fact marching home. Last evening
at about 7 oclock, all doubts were set at rest,
by the appeal ance on the back streets in the
upper portion of the city, of four travel
stained, foot-sore and generally demoralized
specimens of humanity. From their evi
dent desire to avoid public attention, Officer
Galvin, who di&coveied them sneaking along,
took them to be tramps and at first insisted
upon escorting them to the City Hall, but
they by some means succeeded in convincing
him they were simply i bad luck and not
the vagabonds they looked, and they were al
lowed to proceed, and at last accoun ts were
safely housed in an upper room of the Met
ropolitan, with a large corps of physicia ns
and nurses engaged in binding up their
blistered feet, administeri ng nouiismhent to
their wasted bodies, and otherwise getting
them in presentable condition.
The distance from St. Paul to Sauk Cen
tre, as the ciow flies, is 117 miles. Accord
ing to the GLOBE telegr am the paity left

would make them just eig ht days on the
road, making their aveiage daily walk 14%

Ford or George Hunsucker can give details
of the walk.
The Bells eo Ringing for Sarah
They were wedding bells, and the happy
chimes pealed forth in Judge Flint's court
room for Miss Sarah A. McDevett, of Scott
county, Iowa, and Mr. Carlos Came, of Hen
nepin county, an outlying district of St.
Paul. After the judge, yesterday morning,
had slaughtered the innocents, these two
came in unattended. Their wishes were
made known, the license pioduced, and the
ceremony peiformed. Deep interest
evinced by the few fortunate spectators
present. As they all couldn't be fiist in the
ceremony, they eagerly volunteeied to be so
much as a witness. The choice of the bride
fell upon Mr. Carlton, clerk, and
a friend of his, Mr. Seth M. ltichards, a
Benedict of recent date himself. These two
signed the proceedings. The bride was
neatly and tastefully attired in a modest
Bheeny gray dress, white hat, white veil,
white kid gloves and a becoming wrap.
Bright eyed, rosy cheeked, she looked the
ideal for such an occasion. The biidegroom
looked like all men do under such embar
rassing circumstanc s. Pronounced man
and wife they departed, bth evidently glad
The Marshall Family Troubles.
The Marshall family difficulty showed up
in court yesterday morning. The brother
in-law, who lives at Mr. Marshall's, com
plained of him as a disorderly. Culver, the
consumptive brother-in-law, stated that
Marshall made so much noise about his
Marshall's, not Culver's house, that he
Culver was grievously disturbed in mind
and body. Culver had an array of wit
nesses to back him, among whom,
was his sister, Mrs. Marshall.
The owner of the house, the husband, the
flon-in-law, the brother-in-law, the accused
asked for time. The charge had been sud
denly jumped upen him. He bud no attor
ney, was mentally racked with too many rel
atives in-law, and he would esteem it a favor
to have a hold off in this affair. The judge
under the oircumBtances held out of the busi
ness until the 26th inst.
Later in the day Marshall visited his home
in company with an officer, and was denied
admission. He made a forcible "open
Sesame" with the toe of his boot. It is like
ly this will be footed up against in disorderly
account against him by the brother-in-law.
Lighting the City.
Saroni's contract for lighting the city for
one year from Nov. 6, prox., has been signed,
sealed, executed and the bond delivered.
City Attorney Murray received a car., fully
marked Davenport, Iowa, paper yesterday.
It was a remembrance from the Shepherd
Gas company's agent, who was a defeated
competitor for illuminating St. Paul. The
vanquished agent, by better home produc-
tion, returned to the shade of his own Tine
and fig tree, and laid his grievance before a
reporter. That young fellow seized a Faber
No. 2 and made a No. 1 effort to annihilate
St. Paul, the council, Saroni, the gas lights,
etc. His effort leaves nothing to be said in
answer. This city 's in total darkness.
THE DISCONTENTED ONES.

The district court, Judge Wilkin presid
ing, opened yesterday at 10 o'clock A. M.

William Munson Finds that Trusted His
Bartender Too Implicitly.
A robbery at No. 176 East Seventh street
was reported at police headquarters, yester
day morning. William Munson, the victim,
stated that the previous afternoon he was
called out of his saloon at the above number
for a short time, and left one Iver Nyrnas in
charge. After returning home he discovered
that his trunk in an upstairs room had been
broken open, and from it were taken a watch
and chain, valued at $50, with a $5 gold
piece on the chain a gold ring with dark
stone set, one plain gold ring and other gew
gaws, all valued at $30. A little before the
lobbery was discovered Nprnasjcomplained
of being sick, and was allowed to leave the
saloon to visit a physician. These facts be
ing told, and the statement made that
Nyrnas had only been in Munson's
employ a few days, it was thought
advisable to arrest him. He was accordingly
brought to the station. He emphatically de
nied all knowledge of the theft. Since his
arrest, it has been learned that when he
went out to see a physician he called on nohonor
one and it is supposed his object in going
out was to cache his treasures. The addi
tional evidence has been learned that he was
seen upstairs, where he had no business,
about the time the robbery was committed.
Vet, Iver is indignant in his denial of having
bursted the trunk.
Forging a Transportation Order.
A neat attempt to defraud the West Wis
consin Eailroad company was frustrated last
night. About 7 o'clock a soldier entered
the office at the corner of Jackson and
Third streets, and presented a government or
derfor transportation to Chicago. It was made
out according to form, and duly signed by
Col. Lee, the depot quartermaster here, The
railroad clerk handed the order over to a
gentleman with whom he had been convers
ing, and asked if that was Col. Lee's signa
ture to the order. "No," said the other he
ought to know, as he was Col. Lee's Clerk.
The soldier grabbed the order out of the
quartermaster clerk's hands, tore it up, and
darted out in the darkness of the night.
No pursuit of the man was attempted.
Later in the evening Chief Weber received
notice of the affair from military sources,
with the request to arrest the man, if he
could be found. It was stated that he hadthe
stolen five transpoitation orders, and hea
might negotiate one, even though he hadservedly
failed in the first attempt. The chief kept
a sharp look out for him, and succeeded in
catching the rascal about 9 o'clock. He
was taken to the station and there gave his
name first as McCarty and then Campbell.
He wouldn't tslk to any one, and said he
would not be interviewed by any dd re
porter. The laBt remark being addressed to
a P. P. interrogation point.
Wouldn't Take the Responsibility.
Yesterday, Albert Boerner teok up his resi
dence in jail. He came from Wright county,
and there came along with him a deputy
sheriff from Buffalo, and a lot of papers.
The papers told the story. Albert had been
keeping company with one Marttia Kuehen
meister, to her contusion at last. When
asked to assume the whole responsibility of
their love, or her love and his deception, he
declined. Thereupon she made a case in
court and piesented the proof. Judge
Young, befoie whom the case was tried, sen
tenced Boerner to contribute $50 per year to
the maintenance of the child, and to pay the
costs of the suit, $47.80. It was further
stipulated that he should furnish a bond of
$500 for a faithful performance of these
family duties in the event of a non-compli
ance, he was to be incarcerated in jail until
he came to terms. As Albert is in jail, it is
supposed that he didn't comply, but left
Maitha to tote the responsibility all alone.
Fun for One of the Boys.
Yesterday morning there was a bit of a
ruction in the vicinity of Robert and Twelfth
streets. A small boy, calling Mr. Albert
Howson pa, said he saw another small boy
named Jacob Benton surreptitiously klep
tomaniac some plates. He grabbed Ben
ton, being bent on getting tho plates
back, and called for his pa to
come to his assistance. Pa came up and put
his paw on the throat of the Benton boy.
The outcome of the matter was that Howson
was arrested, brought before Judge Flint,
who informed him that before he again laid
his paws upon a child he should pause and
reflect upon the Savior's love for little chil
dren. The accused didn't believe it was his
jewty to follow such precepts, as he was an
Israelite. Then the court deemed it only
christianly duty to extract a fine of $5 from
The wife and child of Mr. J. J. Egan met
with an accident on the corner of Seventh
and Eosabel streets, yesterday afternoon
about 4:30 o'clock. They were out driving
in a buggy, when Hearing the above locality
the horse look fright, ran away and upset
the vehicle. The occupants of the buggy
were thrown out and received painful inju
ries. The accident was witnessed by sev
eral, who hastened up to the unfortunate
lady's assistance. She and child were picked
up, conveyed home in a hack and Mr. Egan
was sent for. At the time he was arguing a
case before Judge Wilkin. On his arrival
at home he found Dr. Hand in attendance.
The doctor relieved his anxiety by assuring
him that his wife and child had only re
ceived a few bruises, which would be cured
of their soreness with a few days rest.

The Orphans' Fair.
The great number of people who visited
Armory Hall yesterday is proof positive that
Catholic Orphan schools and asylum is
most popular institution. And most de
it is so, for in this institution the
little ones are so cared for, nurtured and
fostered as to make their great and irrepar
able loss as little realized by them as possi
ble. The sisters extend to each and all of
them the love of true womanhood, purified
by Christian charity, and the little
ones show by their happy,
cheerful faces, merry voices and light and
joyous ways, that the void in their young
lives is well filled. Any one seeing the neat,
scrupulously clean appearance and the child
ish abandon of these fortunate unfortunates
when they visited the fair got up for their
benefit, could but be convinced that to care
for the fatherless and shield the homeless
to gather under the roof-tree of large-hearted
charity, destitute childhood to train and
guide and guard them, and arm them to
fight for themselves the great battle of life,
is a noble work worthy of all support. And
the support is being nobly given. Armory
hall was patronized largely all day yesterday,
and crowded in the evening. The lists
showed that the people did not come
merely to look and be amused,
but to spend their substance
for the great and humanizing and laudable
work. The parlor set, the silver tea andT
coffee service, the lady's secretary, the easy
chair, the dressing gown, and the score of
other more valuable articles to be raffled,
had many purchasers of tickets. Miss Cass
erly's candy stand and Miss Grogan's fish
pond were immensely patronized. The re
freshment rooms, too, did a "roaring busi
ness" all day and till a late hour at night.
