THE ST. PAUL COUNCIL VOTES $10,000
IX AID OF THE vYCLOXE
A Question as to the Legality of the Action
liaised, but No Diversity of Opinion as
to the Duty of the Cry— Further Reports
of Losses in Kurhoster and the Surround
A special meeting of the city council
was held yesterday afternoon, Aid. Allen
presiding. The meeting was called for the
purpose of meeting a committee of the
chamber of commerce, appointed to place
before the council a resolution carried by
that body respecting the Rochester relief
On motion of Aid. Dowlan the commit
tee were invited to take seats within the
Gen. Sanborn, chairman of the com
mittee, stated that two resolutions had
come before the chamber of commerce;
one was for the appointment of a com
mittee to canvas the city for funds and
endeavor to raise $10,000 to send for the
help of Olmsted and Elgin counties in
their distress. The other resolution was
that the city council be asked to vote the
sum of $10,000 towards the relief fund,
the said sum to be paid from the city
treasury, but the unanimous feeling
seemed to be, the speaker said, in favor
of the latter resolution as it
was also the general opinion of the tax
payers. There are many nou -residents
who own large estates in St. Paul and who
never contribute a cent to charity, while
gentlemen of the chamber of commerce
and merchants on Third street are solicited
almost daily to contribute toward seme
n-ble work, and the chamber was of opin
ion that the amount desired for the Roch
ester sufferers being large, it was only fair
that all citizens should contribute toward
especially those wealthy absentees.
The same thing was done after the great
fire in Chicago, when the council voted
$20,000. Gen. Sanborn had spoken to
different persons, among whom was Mr.
Moon, and the general opinion was that if
St. Paul contributed $10,000 to the fund it
would be doing as much as ought to be
expected. He stated that $882.90 had
already been collected by the chamber of
commerce, and the press had collected
some five or six hundred dollars, and busi
ness houses some hundreds, which, with the
$10,000 asked for, would make about $12,
--000 from St. Paul. The chamber did not
make an absolute demand upon the council
but made the request as the almost unani
mous sentiment of the city.
Gen. Averell, as one of the committee,
spoke of tha $5,000 guaranteed by the fifty
citizens, who signed the note upon the
moment of hearing the appeal from the
mayor of Rochester to the city of St. Paul.
He said there was a difference of opinion
in the chamber as to whether the council
be asked to take that responsibility
from the hands of those gentlemen or
only be asked to vote $5,000. He was of
opinion that the city should shoulder the
whole £$10,000. And even then some
members of the chamber would raise sev
eral thousand dollars in addition.
Capt. Berkey referred to the Chicago
vote of former days. He moved at the time
to double it from a sense of duty to re
spond to the appeal of persons suffering
from a calamity beyond their responsibil
ity, and he argued that the present case
W£S as urgent and necessary, for the loss
to individuals was greater. Many had lost
their all and were suffering from wounds
a 3 well.
Aid. Otis spoke at length upon the legal
points of the case, and as a matter of "ex
pediency." The council had no right, he
Baid, to vote the money, but if there were
substantial grounds where a benefit would
accrue to the city by taking even an ille
gal act, there might be some reasons to
base such actions upon. Hardship and
suffering, he said, call forth our deepest
sympathy, and urge us to give our sub
stance to relieve their sufferings, but have
the council the right to measure the dispo
sition of citizens? It would be a bad pre
cedent. More than charity and sympathy
should govern in a measure of this kind.
The question is to in what measure the city
would benefit. He was willing to vote for
the chamber's request if he could see the
good redounding to the city. In the case
of New Ulm the council did an illegal
thing, but it made a staunch friend, and
New Ulm stood by St. Paul in the capitol
building. But in this case the people of
St. Paul would not all be ben
efitted personally, only those with
whom Rochester would trade, and he was
in favor of voting $5,000 and allowing the
rest to be provided by those who would be
benefited personally — or in other words,
the wholesale merchants who are patron
ized by outside cities .
Capt. Baker, in a spirited reply, stated
the vote was made to Chicago without any
expectation of a return. The council were
actuated by higher motives, by those of
benevolence and charity, and this sum
should b9 a free vote of the whole city, not
a part of it. There were many men, and
wealthy, who always got |off scot free, and
it was right they should pay their just pro
portion. "There is not a man, woman nor
child, gentlemen," he said, "in St. Paul
mean enough to complain if St. Paul
votes this $10,000 to these stricken people.
The case was ten times as urgent as that
Aid. Otis explained that no mercenary
motives influenced him, for he was readi
to contribute according to his means, bui
the council had no right to dictate the ex
tent of any citizen's charity, and he agaii
dwelt upon the advantage to be expectec
A Alderman Dowlan was of opinion that
the council should do all that it could do
in the matter.
Alderman Johnson thought the council
should carry out the wishes of the people
as far as possible, and he was sure the peo
ple would not hold them to the strict law .
If the taxpayers are in favor of the vote
the council should make this contribution
to help a sister city in her affliction and he
had not heard a dissenting voice from the
people against it.
Mr. Lee delivered a most telling speech.
He said there was no question of law;
there is a law higher than that formed
by councils — the law of humanity and of
necessity. It was necessary tnat these
fifty men who had so nobly an.i so prompt
ly o^me forward and took the responsibil
ity of that $5,000 should be relieved by
the city. They would pay, there was no
fear of that, if the city refused, but it
would be a disgrace to the city to refuse.
If the city did not take the responsibility
those citizens wonld pay double the $5,000
for which they were responsible and their
part of the other $5,000 in taxes.
That would not make them feel
bad, but was it just, was it creditable to
St. Paul? He (Mr. Lee) was astonished at
the prompt manner in which these gentle
men came forward at the moment to find
the needful money, but if the city went
back on them would they be so ready
again ? He remembered taking that $20,
--000, and it was the first hard cash that they
had received, and if the people of St. Paul
could have seen the tears run down the
cheeks of the recipients from overflowing
gratitude they would never forget it, He
would rather go on the street and beg than
to refuse to take up this note. There is no
law to interfere with right, and the
man who would try to pre
vent St. Paul doing what [is just and
right would be hissed out of tne commu
Aid. Dowlan thought the city should pay
the §5,000 and vote another $5,000.
Aid- Starkey would be glad to see $15,
--000 given to Rochester if it couid be legal
ly done. The duty to help the sufferers
at Rochester is greater than was that to
relieve Chicago and New Ulm. Standing
on the legal point he could not vote one
dollar from the treasury, but would be
willing to give his note for a sum accord
ing to his means.
At this point the president vacated the
chair, which was taken by Aid. O'Connor.
Aid. Allen stated vhat the present was
the third similar case. The first was that
of Chicago, the second New Aim, but Roch
ester is the most urgent of them all. They
are our own people, members of our own
state, and the state never witnessed such
suffering before. Death, wounds and ruin
were strewn around, and it was the duty of
the council as a Christian people to extend
the hand of charity. There was no law to
keep them irom doing yood. He was
never afraid to vote for right and he
should not be now. The city is prosperous
and will never miss it. The same law ex
isted when Chicago and New Ulm cried for
aid, and the 6ame spirit of charity now
animates the people as then, and if the
city gives anything she should give §10,000,
and he urged the council not to do things
by halves. Ho also advocated the money
being raised by general tax.
The president having returned to the
chair, Aid. Dowlan asked the opinion of
the city attorney upon the legality.
Mr. Murray stated that the only way to
do was to pass a resolution voting the
money for the purpose, raise it on this
resolution, and then get an act of the legis
This was ultimately agreed to.
Mr. Lowry, of the street car company,
appeared before the council, and submit
ted plans for alterations in the street car
routes, explaining the advantages to the
public, at the same time guaranteeing to
replace pavements, and to fill up all the
street tracks with cobble pavement.
The plan was as follows: To put double
track on Tenth, Rice, Summit, Nelson to
Western; to continue double track on Wa
bashaw to Iglehart, through St. Peter and
Martin to Rice; to take up Rice from Mar
tin to Summit, Summit to lglehart, Igle
hart to St. Peter, St. Peter to Wabasha;
Western from Iglehart to Nelson, Eighth
from Jackson to Westminster; Jackson
from Seventh to Eighth; Sibley from Sev
enth to Eighth; either on Thirteenth or
Pearl from Jackson to Mississippi; prob
ably Fourth to Tenth; Third from Wabasha
to Seven corners. Lay down double track
on Seventh from Westminster to Jackson;
Fourth from St. Peter to Seven corners on
either Pearl to Thirteenth. Build new
line from about North street on Beadle
street to Seventh, thence on Seventh to
Seven corners. This would make in con
nection with Fort street, a direct connec
tion between two of the most
important sections of the city
between three and four miles long.
Considerable disenssion followed and the
plans were ultimately submitted to the
committee on streets.
The grading of Dakota avenue was re
ported from the board of public works and
A resolution was passed authorizing the
decoration committee to erect arches, etc.,

THE STATE FAIR.
Indications of an Excellent Exhibition— A
Splendid Display of Blooded Stock-Spe
Owatonna, Minn., August 29. — The offi
cers of the society are here completing

grounds, and his assistants are kept on the
jump making entries.
To-day more additional stalls were or
dered put up to accommodate the grand
exhibit of stock to add to the herds which
will come direct from the Minneapolis

of the noticeable herds entered
to-day: Mr. Ellis, of Austin, his herd
of Holsteins, also a large herd
of the same cattle from Waseca and M. T.

charge of Duggan, who was also a Catho

MINNESOTA POJ ITICS.
A Letter Writer Who Predicts the Elec-
tion of Bieriuaun.
[St. Paul Correspondence Chicago Times.]
In a Times interview, the other day,
Senator Sabin, the rollicking young mill
ionaire who, by the grace of Democratic
votes, was installed in the comfortable
lounging chair in the United States senate
so long filled by Windom, took occasion
to declare "his state [the commonwealth
of Minnesota] was Republican to the
backbone." The assurance of the young
senator is scarcely to be wondered at.
Successive victories, dating back over a
period of more than a quarter century,
are well calculated to inspire such confi
dence. Yet there be knowing ones who
give and receive a wink that can safely be
interpreted as the intimation of an exist
aut doubt upon this subject. State cam
paigns are, in the main, provincial in
their issues and in management, though
occasionally in a pivotal state, such as
Ohio this year, extraneous influences are
inducted. Minnesota is not a ■pivotal
state. It 3 plaeo in tne Republican col
umn has never been questioned, and the
offices and machinery of state elections
have easily kept it there. Those state ejec
tions have been provincial, aud the mem
ory of man bears me witness (oat
there has beeu no other issue in tho
state contents except the offices. These
latter have in the main been conducted
honestly and efficiently, and consequent!*
satisfactorily. There has therefore been
no substantial reason for a change, and
who have aspired have continually found
their ambition hopeless. Democrats of
wealth and its implied influence, especial
ly those located at St. Paul and Minneapo
lis, have in many cases been indifferent,
not to say repugnant, to Democratic suc
cess. The immense business interests of
the moneyed Democrats of the two cities
have made them allies in a sense with like
moneyed and influential Republicans, in
many cases it being actual copartner
ship. Hence an apathetic Democracy in
Minnesota. There have been a few "old
paleozoics," relics of the forgotten years
of Buchanan, Douglas, and their compeers,
who once a year would resurrect their
best coats from the old cedar chest, don
choker collars, and march to the conven
tion hall "to represent Democracy." These
"eminently respectables" have never given
thought or color to a hope that tuey
would accomplish anjtoing. 1c sufficed
for them that they retailed the faith
themselves and got themselves on public
exhibition in that role once a year. It is
easy to understand that the party organi
zation, struck with dry-rot like this, was a
lifeless, decaying trunk.
The state Democratic convention was
held on the 2d inst. I was there. In the
front benches there were the "best
coats and choker collars," an array cer
tainly "eminently respectable." Imagine,
say, one hundred men, each bearing upon
him the traces of an age and time long
passed away, men whose sparse locks
were shivered with frost ere mine had any
color. True, the convention was not en
tirely made up of antiquities; there was a
goodly sprinkling of younger men in the
back benches, many of them sons of the
' venerables" in front, and, as the result
"CEOWDED THE MOUBNEBS"
very closely. First, the younger element
captured the organization in the selection
of Hon. C. F. Buck as ohairman, a man of
years, yet progressive enough to read tha
signs of the times . The ballot for gover
nor, however, showed that the mossbacks
had a majority of five, and their candidate
for governor, W. W . McNair, was nomi
nated over Adolf Biermann,
the choice of the young Democrats. The
latter captured the platform and the state
central comnr ittee, the selection being left
to the choice of the chairman.
Mr. McNair had decided to go to Eu
rope, and promptly declined the empty
honor of the nomination. This left the
matter of supplying the vacancy with
the state committe and last Friday they
got together, and, despite the frantic ap
peals of some of the mossbacks, the com
mittee, (which had been judiciously se
lected by Mr, Buck), unanimously chose
Mr. Biermann to take the head place on the
ticket. Thus the young Democrats won a
victory after all, and such a one, I predict,
as will be the turning point of the Demo
cratic party's career in this state. So
much for the circumstances that have
made Mr. Biermann the democratic candi
date for governor. Adolf Biermann is a
man of about 45 years of age; a Scandi
navian by birth, who came to this country
at the beginning of the rebellion and
enlisted in the Union army within an
hour of his landing in New York. He
serAed faithfully to the close and then
came west. He received a collegiate edu
cation in his parent country, and being
possessed of much
easily became prominent in politics. Al
though a Democrat, he served the people of
Olmsted county, a Republican stronghold,
six years in the capacity of auditor. Last
fall he was nominated for congress against
Milo White, and in a district that gave
over 9,000 popular majority for Garfield
he was only defeated about 600 votes. It
will readily be seen that he has elements
of strength, especially among his own
countrymen, which, in view of the fact
that 90 per cent, of them are Republicans
and that they are 60,000 strong in this
state, may reader it possible to overcome
the nominal Republican majority of 30,
--000. If he only receives 15,000 Republi
can votes, he offsets their usual majority.
I have said Minnesota usually has no
state issues, hence there is nothing to pre
vent the 60,000 Scandinavians in the state
from deserting the party that has contin
uously ignored them and electing one of
their own countrymen to the highest office
in the 6tate, and thereby create the first
Scandinavian governor ever elected in any
state in the Union.
There is on 6 other matter that will cut
a decidedly important figure in the com
ing campaign, and that is the party plat
forms. That adopted by the Republicans
declares for a protective tariff and in fa
vor of the submission to the people of a
constitutional amendment favoring.
The first is not the real sentiment of Min
nesota Republicans, who are grievously
burdened by such imposts as those on
woolen goods, — a prime necessity in this
cold climate, — but was foisted on them by
a packed committee with Congressman
Washburn, himself a protected manufaot
urer, at its head. The Democratic plat
form declares for a "tariff for revenue
only." But this can not properly be
called a state issue; not so the plank con
cerning prohibition. Congressman Wash
burn also fathered that . He has a large
number of prohibitionists in his district,
and thought that such a sop to them would
hurt nobody and benefit himself. There
is where he made a grievous mistake. The
Democrats took an opposite stand and de
clared against sumptuary legislation of any
kind, and especially prohibition. That
leaves the matter in this position : The
next legislature will be Republican. In
accordance with their platform they will
be compelled to submit a prohibitory
amendment to the people. The last legis
lature was only prevented from so doing
by lobbying of the liveliest kind. We have
in Minnesota a strong German element,
who are naturally opposed to prohibition.
They view wit: alarm the action of our 1
neighbor in the south — lowa. A Democrat- J
ie governor in Minnesota, elected on aj
platform opposed to prohibition, could j
consistently veto any legislation of that
kind. Hence, I say, this campaign ha«
an issue. A fight will be forced on the
i3sue of prohibition, and a result may be J
expected in November that will be a sur- j
prise of the greatest magnitude. You will '■
remember I predicted Senator Windom's '
defeat when he and his friends and nine
tenths of the public believed him impreg
nable. lam not afraid to risk ray repu

TJte Correspondent Replies to ihs Journal.
To the Editor of the Globe:
One of my recent special? to the Chicago |
Times seems to have greatly perturbed j
certain of the Republican papers of the !
I state, the Minneapolis Journal especially;
which, after some personal allusions that
may answer its idea of argument, goes on
to overwhelm, as it were, my position, by
boldly alleging that "there is no prohibi
tion issue in Minnesota." Taming to a i
Journal tile, I find in its issue of Jane 2S !
a copy of the platform adopted by the Be- !
publican ptate ooventioc, "on the
day previous, from which I
cue the following plank, No, G:
That recognizing the right of the peo
ple to a fair hearing upon ail questions
affecting their interests, and to effect by
lawful means any changes in the constitu
tion af the state which they shall deem ex
pedient, not intending thereby to commit
the party to any policy upon the question
of constitutional prohibition, we are in
favor of giving free and fair opportunity
to the people of the state to vote upon thi3
as well as upon other questions, whenever
a respectable proportion of the voters
shall petition for the privilege of exercis
ing the right.
I would like to ask the Journal or any
person endorsing that plank: What does
it refer to? Stripped of its ambiguous
phraseology it simply means that the Re
publican party, in convention assembled,
resolve that they (the party) are in favor
of the submission to the people of aprohib
itory amendment to the state constitution.
There is no other issue before the people
of Minnesota that any ten of them are de
sirous of voting upon except prohibition.
This plank refers directly and especially
to the question of "constitutional prohibi
tion." It says distinctly and
painly: We are in favor of
giving free and fair opportunity to the
people of the state to vote upon this, (con
stitutional prohibition,) as well as upon
other questions. If that is net making an
issue what is it?
It was in that very manner that the lowa
Republicans first opened their doors to
the Prohibitionists, and that issue in lowa
now towers over all others. The Minnesota
Republicans are, by that platform, com
mitted to prohibition. The next legisla
ture, if Republican, must sanction legisla
tion in accordance with that platform.
The next governor, if Republican, must
give his sanction to legislation based upon
principles adopted by his party in the
convention which nominated him. Is it
not plain then that prohibition is the is
sue, and the only issue, except the offices,
before the people of Minnesota at the com
The Journal and its hidebound con
freres of the party press undoubtedly view
with alarm the dissatisfaction existant
within their ranks, more especially among
the German element, and naturally enough
seek to lie out of their predicament; but
they threw down the gauntlet and only
confess th«ir cowardice in seeking to sneak
away from the fight. Let me as
sure the Journal that I know person
ally of many German Republicans, who
will vote for that candidate for governor,
who, if elected, would be bounden by the
tenets of his party, as declared in their
platform, to oppose "all sumptuary legis
lation," even to the extent of an executive
veto — and that candidate is Adolph Bier
Gome again, Mr. Shaw, but come with
arguments and not with the blackguard
abuse of a worsted antagonist. Refute
my statements with facts, if you can, il
you dare try. Hiawatha.

New Ulm Review, Aug. 22: Last Satur
day was the twenty-first anniversary of
the terrible Sioux Indian outbreak of 1862,
and twenty-one years ago to-day the last
attack was made on New Ulm, the fight
continuiug two days. Then the country
was covered v^ita blood and carnage and
the people in New Ulm were ia momenta
ry dread of being overpowered iiuu tjor
ribly tortured and nnaliy murdered. To
day everyone lives in peace and ileaty.
For a number of years the anniverat-.ry of
the outbreak was observed with memorial
service?, but in later years but little or
nothing is dono to refresh the memory
of the terrible scenes of 1862.
Caledonia Journal: An event, unparal
leled in the history of our county ,took place
last Sunday morning. Nicholas Onden, a
German, living in Crooked Creek township,
had just completed a new cist
ern and to hasten the drying of
the cement he kindled a fire at the
bottom, covered it and let it remain a cou
ple of days. Last Sunday morning his
son went into the cistern, evidently for
the purpose of removing the remains of
the fire. The father, who was standing at
the top, seeing the boy fall into a swoon
as soon as he reached the bottom, hurried
down to see what was the trouble. No
sooner had he got in before he was simi
larly attacked. His wife was the only per
son present and being unable to render
them any assistance herself, started for a
neighbor's house to get somebody to come
to their rescue . When she returned they
were both dead . It is supposed that the
action of the fire on the aii»in the cistern,
had created a poisonous gas, which was
the cause of this sad casualty.
