The Democratic party resolved itself into
a jollification party, last night. Headed by
the Great Western band, the friends of the
"Begular Democratic Ticket" paid each suc
cessful candidate a visit, and honored
him with a serenade. The assembly was
made at the city hall about 9 o'clock, and
under the guidance of Hons. W. H. Murray
and Urisbin, and others, the procession was
formed and marched to Sheriff King's resi
MIEMFr KING SEItENiDED.
Arriving at the jail, the band discoursed
sweet music. Shoitly after the sweet sounds
had gone out in to silence, Sheriff King ap
peared, and was greeted with hearty cheers.
Hon. Brisbm gave him an elegant
salutation. referred to the late canvass,
and congratulated Sheriff King upon his
well merited success. He, King, had fought
against the most malignant opposition that
had ever disgraced a local campaign in Ram
soy county. His indomitable spirit and ex
ertion had overcome the maliciousness of his
assailants, and his fellow citizens of the
Democialic party had rallied handsomely to
his rescue. The speaker augured from the
unanimity of the party at the la3t election
that a solid front of mighty phalanxes would
be presented to the enemy in the national
light of 1880. Alluding to this coming con
test, he named his choice for the Presidency,
Senator Bayard, of Delaware, who

and its mission, Le said, it was the party of
he people, and among other piivileges con
tended for it uphe ld the sacredness of the
ballot, and the free will of manner to vote
untrammeled by fear, favor or affection.
Just here the speaker took occasion to men
tion the mooted question of a contest over
he late election. A contest, by the dofoated
candidates, because the Democrats had voted
a "Regular Democratic ticket." felt
pretty sure that any man voting a ticket so
superscribed, had the pxesumpti on

characterized any such attempt as le
gally absurd, and called to the attention of
his hearers that such an attempt was con
templated, but would meet with signal fail
ure. The Republic an election law had had
one hole knocked in it, and enough could be
mado in it to give it the appearance of one
of the tattered and riven flags of the late war
in the capitol. [Cheers.] The speaker then
closed with a hearty congratulation at the
success of the whole ticket.
Sheriff King stated he wasn't giv en to

honor conferred, and for the cordial sup

A lively tune brought Mr. Davis out. He
returned his thanks, and expressed his high

HON. JOSEPH OPPENHEIM CALLED ON.
Somewhat thinned out in numbers,
the crowd at 11:30 o'clock left
the judge's hospitable mansion and took the
route to Hon. Joseph Oppenheim's. Here
they were greeted with a further evidence of
courteous hospitality, and treated to the best
the land affords in solid and fluid. Happy
speeches were made and a general good time
was voted the order of the daythe long
sinewy minute hand of time was over the
border of 12 o'clock.
Thence the band and a few faithful follow
ers made the Hon. James Smith Jr., a call.
Here again the "good time" met with a gen
erous reception. The cocks were crowing
something more than midnight when the
Democratic party voted a "straight ticket"
to go straight home. As they
went straight home the
supplementalgvote was recorded, "We all had
a jolly good time, our candidates are jolly
good fellows, and we'll elect them again."
The Sorrows of a Horse Trader.
A horse trader named L. Wirth was
loitering around the municipal court yester
day forenoon with a grievance on his mind.
A GLOBE man got him to unbosom himself.
His story runs thusly: Last July, 19th, he
sold two horses for $450 to Webb, of the
Metropolitan stables. To secure himself,
he took a chattel mortgage on four horses.
Not long ago he returned to this city with a
lot of hcrses from Milwaukee. He made it
his business to ask for his money from
Webb. He couldn't pay then Wirth wanted
the mortgaged, horses. He was tola that
two of them were dead, and the other two
were in Canada. Wirth says he looked up
the matter, found one "dead horse alive,"
and two others on a farm belonging to
Webb, in the up-country. He made in
quiries about how and for what he could
arrest Webb, and then concluded he'd take
out a warrant.
A FATAL RIDE.
Which Col. Crooks' gon and Two Oth
ers Lost Their Lives.
The GLOBE related the sad accident by
which Col. Crooks lost a promising son at
the lime of the occurrence. Yesterday the
news reached the city, that the body had
been recovered, and in all probability
reach the home of
bereaved parent to-morrow,
the news of young Crooks' death
reached here, no details of the lamentable
accident accompanied the bare notification
of his drowning. Since then, and more
particularly, yesterday, Major C. J. Allen,
U. S. Corps Engineers, received a full ac
count of how the mishap and
serious consequences were brought
about. Young Crooks and six others
wore on their return to St. Paul from Grand
Rapids. On the homeward trail they
reached Lake Pokegama about noon of Sun
day, the 3d inst. At the point where they
struck the lake, a family of brothprs, half
breeds, named Sewell, had a farm, and also
had established a ferry across the lakehere
one-half mile wide The party determined
to bo ferried across, rather than make a de
tour of several miles around the lake. The
Sewell brothers brought out a large birch
bark canoe to ferry the party over. As all
could not be accommodated at once, part re
mained on shore while the others got in to
make the crossing. Young Crooks,
Bliss, Cunningham, and Curtis, with
two ferrymen, constituted the
first load. As the boat got
well out on the water she was found to be
unseaworthy, and fast filling with water.
Near the middle of the lake the passengers
realized the danger and sprung from the
boat she turned keel upwards. Curtis and
the two Sewalls caught hold of the boat and
were saved. Young Crooks, being a good
swimmer, struck for the shore. He swam a
distance of three or four hundred yards, fol
lowed by his dog, when he was seen to sink,
the dog with him. It is supposed he became
numbed as the water was intensely cold.
Cunningham, so soon as he jumped from the
boat, sank, and was seen no more. The
cries of the Sewalls and Curtis brought the
remainder of the engineer paity to the
banks, and also boats to tneir relief from
some lumber camps near at hand. Four
days ago the body of young Crooks was re
covered Cunningham's has not been found,
nor has Bliss', who perished at the same
time. If the corpse ariives here on Wednes
day arrangements have been made to have
the interment take place on Thursday.

WHY IS XT TUUS*
The City't, Lamps Dismantled by the Bis
appointed Globe Ga Light CompanyA
Legal Question Involved.
The Northwestern Globe Gas Light com
pany, of Minneapolis, enjoyed the privileges
and accumulated the profits of lighti ng the
city of St Paul for one year. A the expira
tion of their contract they renewed their
offer, and became a competitor against others
foy the money in it. They failed to secure
he contract, both because they had failed to
give satisfaction, and because they were not
he lowest bidder. The successful bidder,
Prof. Saroni, was ready to adjust his burner,
etc., and give the city a glow, when it was
discovered that the Globe Gas company had
dismantl ed all the lamps both of burners and
reservoirs for the gasoline. The que ry
naturally arose, were they entitled
do this? Under the reading
their contract, the city authorities hold to
he contrary. A the time they took charge
the city was lighted with coal oil, eighty
lamps being in use I was stipulated that
these lamps, if removed, should be returned
to the city at the expiration f the Globe gas
company's contract, and it was further con
tracted that these lamps, posts and fixtures
should be furnished the city at $11 per
post, lamps, etc., complete. The company
during the enjoyment of its contract has
planted eighty-four $11 posts, etc The
city besides has paid for the apparatus put
in the other lamps. The coal oil lamps have
not been returned to the city at the expira
tion of the Globe Gas Co.'s contract the
company has dismantl ed the city's $11
posts, eighty-fo ur in number, and has
removed all appurtenances to the other
lighting lamps. Al these proceedin gs are
alleged to be contrary to the spirit and letter
of the law, and the intention is expressed
that the city will learn why this is thus.
And the inquiry, it is stated, will be made
when the company presen ts a $500 bill for
services, at the next regular meeting of the
Action of the Board of Education Upon the
Death of Secretary Manson.
A special meeting of the board of educa
tion was called last evening, for the*fftirpose
of taking some action regarding the death of
A. G. Manson, late secretary of the board.
There were present Inspectors Benz, Cullen,
Donnelly, Dufresne, Hsgan, McCardy
Withey, and the president, Dr. Murphy.
Mr. McCardy acted as secretary. Insriector
Benz moved that the board, in a body, attend
the funeral of the late secretary, A. G. Man
son, Esq., on Wednesday next.
The motion was carried unanimously.
On motion of Inspector Benz, it was re
solved to close the public schools on Wednes
day next, as a mark of respect to the late
Inspector Donnelly moved that the mayor,
aldermen and city officers be asked to attend
the funeral. The motion was carried.
Inspector Donnelly moved that a com
mittee of three, with the superintendent, be
appointed by the chair to frame fitting reso
lutions of condolence and publish them in
the official paper, to drape the offices of the
board in mourning for thirty days, and ar
range for the board to attend the funeral.
ggDr. Murphy appointed Inspectors Don
nelly, Benz and Hagan.
Mr. Benz said that the amount of busi
ness to be accomplished rendered it necessa
ry to have some one act as secretary to the
board until such time as a secretary should
be elected. He would propose that Mr. Mc
Cardy be appointed to act pro tern. Mr.
Scheffer seconded the motion, and it was
The president informed the board that the
funeral would take place from the residence
of deceased at 2 o'clock on Wednesday.
From the house the corpse would betaken to
the Dayton avenue Presbyterian church.
Deceased was a Mason, but the widow and
friends desired a quiet funeral, and declined
the offer of Masonic rites.
"What Mother Has Lost Her Boy
Last Saturday afternoon Mr. John A.
Bazille, residing at No. 278 Wabashaw street,
was made a costly present. It was a baby,
and didn't come to cheer his household, nor
in the usualway. At the time the youngtter
made his advent (it was a bouncing boy) Mr.
Bazille was at work in the back yard his
wife was temporarily absent from home. He
heard a carriage drive up to his door, but re
ceiving no notice from the door bell, sup
posed it had not, after all, stopped at his
residence. He wus further confirmed in this
belief by seeing it speedily drive away.
Shortly afterwards he heard a child cry he
went after the sound, and found it coming
out of the well inflated lungs of a week-old
infant deposited in his front room. The
youngster was cosily stored away in a basket,
and beside him was a bundle of clothing.
Only this and nothing more. Not a word of
pedigree. And it's a wise child who knows
its own fattier.
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE,*fTUESDAY
FORT WELLING BRIDGE.
Bills for the Month of October Allowed
The Work Progressing at Snail's Face.
At the meeting of the bridge commission
ers yesterday morning there were present
Messrs. Lindeke, Knapheider, Cochran and
the chairman, Mayor Dawson. Engineer
Sewall was also present.
A resolution was passed authorizing the
secretary, Mr. Cochran, to employ help to fix
up his minutes.
The engineer'3 little bill for the month of
October was presented and allowed, as fol
lows: Mr. Gano, $150 Corke, rodman, $60:
Grace, rodman, $40 Johnson, rodman, $40
Gano, expenses, $36.30 Grace, inspector,
$150 Sewall, $100 ferry and stamps, $1.36
The following bills were also allowed:
Pioneer Press Co., $26.25 H. M. Smyth,
printing, $10 horse hire for T. Cochran, $2.
Mr. Dawson remarked that the expenses
were creeping up more than he had thought
Mr. Cochran said he would furnish a state
ment at the noxt meeting of the amount al
Mr. Dawson thought that the commission
should give notice to property owners of the
action of the board in condemning the land
necessary for the approaches to the bridge.
As there was no immediate hurry, the matter
was laid over till the return of the county
attorney fiom his important trip to New Al
Mr. Sewall stated to the board that the
pump was still employed on the hole for the
foundation of pier No. 1, at an expense of
$20 per day. This, he said, was through
the neglect of the contractors, who ought to
have commenced laying stone last week.
Mr. Knapheider said the contractor was
waiting to know if he was to put in concrete
Mr. Dawson thought the engineer should
peremptorily notify the contractor that he
must commence the work on pier No. 1
or the pump would be removed. This sug
gestion was formed into a resolution in
structing the engineer to notify Mr. O'Brien.
Mr. Sewell wanted to know if it would not
be as well to notify Mr. Mclntire. The
chairman explained that the board had to do
only with Mr. O'Brien, and it was ultimately
decided that the notice be sent open through
Mr. Mclntire to Mr. O'Brien.
In reply to Mr. Dawson, the engineer said
the contractors had brought down more
granite, and have had a small number of
men re-cutting it.
The board then adjourned.
LOTE'S LABOR, LOST.
A Republican Child that Will Stillborn.
And they are going to do it. Going to
try to defeat the expressed wishes of the
people, "by a large majority," in the last
election. So anxious are some of the de
feated candidates for office, even against the
vote of the qualified voters of Ramsey coun
ty, they contemplate contesting the
election. A conspiracy to that effect
has been jointly entered into by Acker and
Passavant. Messrs. H. J. Horn and W. H.
Sanborn are employed tofixup the legal
aspect of the assault upon the American
citizens' citadel, the ballot box. Under a
statutory provision of this State, it set forth
that when a body has no law suit of his
own, he can come in as avery
adjunct in somebody else's business. Under
this clause, J. Ham Davidson has joined the
coterie to oust, if they can, but they can't,
the legally elected officers of the people.
Yesterday they were up at the capitol library
consulting authorities, wherewith
they could incontinentally "set
down" on the Democratic head
"Regular Demociatic Ticket" used at the
last election. From the tomes overhauled
they got little consolation. The 46 Califor
nia was against them, and Indiana authori
ties made their theories perfect sieves, and
Illinois books were silent for a
precedent. The proposed contest is
based on the assumption that the
use of the words "Regular Democrat Tick
et" on the ballots a violation of the follow
ing clause of the election law:
Sec. 6. N ballot shall be used or
voted at any election containing any cut or
vice on its face, or any cut or device or any
written or printed matter on the back, or in
any other way made to distinguish one ballot
In addition to the above phase of mooted

Barden's henchman, has been for days en
gaged at the city hall going over the election

captured his man sitting on the comb of the

fined $10. It was too long after pay day
for him to have any money, so he was sent
over to the jail to do civil service on the
