themselves. They represent only the lawless
classes, and we very much mistake the com
plexion of that precinct if there are
not reputable people enough to over
whelm them at the polls. The question of
Col. Allen's candidacy or election
is a very minor matter compared with
the question whether such a gang is to gain
a foothold in St. Paul. So far as the Glore
can speak for the Democrats of St. Paul it
repudiates aud denounces that primary meet
ing and calls upon the people of that
precinct, irrespective of party, to repudiate it
at the polls on the 6th day of May. The good

demand the rebuke of the shoulder hitters who
assumed control last night.

such a thing was possible. They went beyond

"Washington, April 24.—The concurrence
of the house la the senate amendments ap
propriating $600,000 for armament of the
new cruisers, while bitterly opposed by Ran
dall and others, nevertheless meets the ap
proval of many Democratic members. They
say the party cannot afford to be arraigned
before the country for refusing to arm ships
constructed under provisions of the law, and
that while they endorse tbe action of the
Democratic majority in r efuslng to agree to
the senate amendments making appropri
ations for additional ships, those we have on
band should be properly equipped. To build
ships and then refuse to arm them would
be received by the people as an unwise
action, and subject the Democratic party to
the accusation of unjustifiable persimony.
TIIE NAVAL API'ROI'KIATIO.VS DEBATE.
The debate on the naval appropriation bill
to day was interesting and exciting, the prin
cipal contest being between Kasson, of lowa,
and Sunset Cox. Kasson insisted that the
Democratic majority had failed to place
themselves on a level of patriotism in refus
ing to concur in the senate amendments to
construct new cruisers, and deprecated the
partisanship shown in the debate. Sunset
Cox made a vigorous speech in approbation
of nonconcurrence and charged
that no matter how vehement
ly Republican members might repudiate
the statement, the old practices of the Jay
Ifubbell committee would be renewed, and
all employes in navy yards of the depart
ments, as elsewhere, would be assessed as a
contribution levied upon them in aid of the
election of tike Republican presidential nom
iness. Mr. Ilenly, of California, told his ex
perience In fighting a like condition of affairs
in California at the last campaign, and was
interrupted by the irrepressible Bedford, who
demanded to know whether the Democratic
party when in power before the war had not
done the same thing. Henly turned the
tables on Belford very cleverly by retorting
that if that were so it occurred before bis
lime and at a period when Bclford was a
Democrat. The Colorado statesman took his
punishment good naturedly, and shaking his
head ominously moved off for repairs.
NO MOKE CRUISERS.
Tbe non-concurrence of the house in the
senate amendments to construct, additional
cruisers opens a bitter fight, and the gage
of battle throwu by the house will be lifted
by tbe senate. The senate majority which
passed the amendment will instruct their
committee of conference to insist upon the
adoption of the amendments, and tbe house
conference committee will stand fast to their
iustructions of non-concurreuee. It will
culminate in a question of endurance, and
at present a compromise seems impossible.
Several Democrats are of the opinion
that if the senate will consent that this
appropriation shall not be available until
next January, or some period after the pres
idential election, an agreement might be
reached. Other Democrats claim that such
a course would stultify their action, especially
those like Bland, who do not favor an in
crease of naval armament in a time of peace.
Dorsheimer believes ships should be built at
once and the navy placed on an equal foot
ing with other nations, likewise at peace.
DID EITHER WIN 1
Tbe results of the Ulica convention were
freely discussed at the capital. Tbe Blame
men assert that Arthur was partially repudi
ated in bis own state, while Ar
thur's friends Insist that the Blame
boom was proved to be effervescent,
and would at the proper time die out.
Friends of the administration do not claim
that Arthur's candidacy was endorsed by the
convention, but that the defeat of the Blame
delegates was equivalent to such an expres
sion of confidence as would materially
strengthen Arthur's at Chicago. Senator
Edmunds was in prime humor, but main
tained his usual placidity of demeanor. He
smiled as much as his sense of decorum
would permit, and passed most of the day in
the vice president's room receiving the con
gratulations of bis friends. It was hard to
tell which was considered the vlctor,Edmunds
or Arthur. Edmunds was ahead at the senate
while Arthur carried off the honors at the
White house. Blaiue men are undoubtedly
much disappointed at the result, as they con
fidently expected to sweep New York. Blame
held conferences with bis confidential
friends to-day, and it is said Seuator Warner
Miller was the recipient of anathemas and
curses for his wretched and criminal blun
ders. Miller's claim to be "boss" was
A COMPROMISE TALKED OF.
A movement is on foot among the Demo
crats in the bouse, looking to a compromise
upon a tariff bill essentially different from
the Morrison bill and which may receive the
support of the united party. 'It will not take
the horizontal reduction as a basis at all, but
will make such discriminations as are needed
and will practically be a revision of the ex
isting- tariff schedules. The matter has been
carefully canvassed by a few of the Pennsyl
vania Democrats, and it is said originated
with Mr. Mutchler, Mr. Elliott and Mr. Cur
tin. The Morrison men are almost unani
mous in favor of the plan, and
to-day Morrison himself was
approached in reference to it. Tbe result was
was not at all satisfactory and it was assumed
there may be some diflieuty in inducing con
sideration of the matter ou his part. Mr.
Randall will be speaker to morrow, and it is
thought be will agree to the plan. The to
bacco part of the internal taxation is one of
tbe proposed reductions, liquors to remain as
at present. This part of the matter is sub
stantially as agreed upon in the caucus. That
some compromise will be necessary In order to
pass " a tariff bill " is evident, but that any
compromise will be accepted by the Morrison
wing until they are actually defeated is not
OPINIONS DIFFER ON THE MISSOURI.
At the meeting of the river and harbor
committee last Saturday the Missouri delega
tion, in presenting their claim for a liberal
appropriation, found that a wide difference
of opinion prevailed as to what was required
and where it was most needed. Some were
in favor of a commission, some were against
and some didn't know-, instead of receiving
what was needed, and it looked as if they
bad actually damaged their cease. A member
of the committee suggested that it would be
better to come to some definite understanding
before they went any further. Acting on this
Messrs. Burnes and Graves held a consulta
tion, the result of which was a letter to Chair
man Willis, setting forth the needs of the
Missouri. This letter, which keeps within
the bounds of the recommendations of the
army engineers, was submitted to the rest of

A Quiet Time With the Exception
of First Precincts of First
and Second Wards.
A Disgraceful Crowd Capture the
FirSt and Col. Allen Appeals
Direct to tlie People.
Big Vote on School Inspector In the Second
Ward-Full List of Nominees
Tbe Democratic primary meetings were
held throughout the city last night and with
the exception of the First Precinct of the
First ward and the First Precinct of the Sec
ond there were no contests and all was quiet.
The results in detail will be found duly re
First Precinct, First Ward.
In this precinct there was really no serious
trouble though around the polls was gathered
one of the roughest, most unprincipalled,
drunken, reckless crowds that ever assem
bled on any similar occasion. It was evident
that the gang numbering not less than 200
bad gathered for the purpose of carrying tbe
matter of nominating the candidate for al
derman through without any regard whatev
er to right and in spite of anything re
spectable. The gang was a disgraceful mob,
ready for any violent proceedings that might
appear necessary to cany -its point. The
shoulder-hitters, and tbe scum of all the
groggeries in lower town were represented.
The rowdies assembled early and took
possession of everything outside
and inside of the voting place at the engine
house, on Wacouta street, and were open
and outspoken as to what they proposed to
do. It was no place for a respectable citizen
and no such person had any chance what
ever. The crowd surged around on the side
walk, before the polls were opened, and
extended out half way across the street,
brawling, cursing and swearing, like so
many lunatics. The gang had evidently
been keyed up to the fighting point with the
principles for which it was fighting—poor
whisky and worse beer—and a more lawless,
desperate collection of roughs has not been
seen in this city. There was no place there
for a respectable voter. That there was not
a serious disturbance and a bloody row
was owing to tbe coolness , and
judicious conduct of Col. Allen, who was in
tending to be a candidate, but who withdrew
rather thanlto be mixed up in such a shameful,
disorderly, and mob-like proceeding as was
witnessed on this occasion. There is n® ex
cuse to be offered for such a wanton disre
gard for the decencies of civilized society as
was witnessed on this occasion. It was repre
hensible to the last degree and caused re
spectable citizens who stood on the outskirts
and witnessed what transpired to hang their
heads in shame. Shoulder-hitters were walk
ing through the crowd anxious for a fight,
and acting in a very insolent manner, and
jostling and jamming people around, appar
ently anxious to have some one remonstrate.
The above Is a moderately drawn picture
of the bullying crowd before the polls were
opened, and for about twenty minutes or
half an hour afterwards. After the crowd
had been surging around for tea or fifteen
minutes, and the time for opening the polls
had arrived, the engine house was cleared of
people in order to give the judges full pos
session of the room. The judges of the
election, that is, the men who received and
counted the votes, were Pius Reide, who
keeps a beer saloon and kind of boarding
house on lower Third street, near Sibley;
Charles Lundecn, a runner for hotels and
railroads, and Dave. Grauman, who keeps a
little saloon on lower Seventh street, and
runs a scalping place on Sibley street, below
Jackson. This was the make up of the
judges of election.
About ten minutes before the polls were
opened, Col. Allen, who was intending to
be a candidate for re-election as alderman,
drove up and went into the engine house,
where be proposed to have the judges select
some person that should be satisfactory to all
parties, to stand at the window and receive
the votes. None of the judges appeared to
take kindly to this and Lundeen at once
proceeded to the window where the votes
were to be received and took.his seat, evi
dently with the intention of indicating there
by that he would occupy tbe position of re
ceiving the tickets and depositing them in
the box. The little table upon which was the
box for the votes, was by that time drawn up
behind Lundeen, and the two other judges—
Graumau andßeide—seated themselves close
to it and near to the voting window. Dur
ing all this changing of positions no notice
was taken of Col. Allen's proposition and
the whole transaction had the appearance of
saying to the Colonel that the judges were
for Charles S. Cummings for alderman, and
not for Col. Allen, and that they bad nothing
to do with any other proposition in regard to
selecting any one to take the Qtickets, as that
was already fixed. This was a new phase of
the matter and was evidently a surprise to
Col. Allen, who stood a minute or so ap
parently to see if he was not mistaken, and
to ascertain whether there was any hope of
fair play. It did not require long to con
vince him that there was no chance for him
iv that contest. He and bis friends there
fore withdrew and went outside. There be
met the crowd and made bis way through to
bis carriage, which be entered. The crowd
all this time was surging around, and like so
mauy hungry wolves, were almost
ready to make a break for the carriage. There
were five policemen at tbe polls to Keep order,
and they bad all they wanted to do to keep
the crowd from making a break at the car
riage. Seeing that all efforts to get anything
like a fair show at the voting window, he
called aloud upon all his friends to retire with
him, for the reason that there was no chance
to get justice, and by remaining a disturb
ance would undoubtedly be caused. Saying
this, be threw all bis votes away, and -again
called upon his friends to withdraw. In say
ing this he announced that he would meet
his enemies at the polls. He then drove
Tbe crowd was thus cheated out of all cause
for difficulty, and Col. Allen by his judicious
conduct avoided a disgraceful disturbance.
The voting was then proceeded with and the
gang run in 462 votes for the following tick
For Alderman. Charles S. Cummings.
For School Inspector. Dr. J. Ohasje.
Delegates: H. W. Cory, John Heber, B.
J. Linstadt, L. Cornick.
At six o'clock all Interest in the matter
had died out and there were not more than
ten or fifteen around the polls at that time.
Twenty-nine votes were cast for the follow
For alderman—A. Allen.
Delegates—E. Schurmeier, B. Linstad, P.
Reide, Andrew Poulson.
These were put in during the last hour,
and wen- deposited by those who did not
know that Col. Allen bad withdrawn.
In the Second precinct of the First ward
there was no contest and only one ticket.
There was no name for school inspector
printed on the ticket and though a few- scat
tering votes for that office were cast, it is un
derstood the delegates will name a candidate
" The. Bloody Second."
There was a vigorous contest for school in
spector in the First district of tbe Second
ward, J. G. Donnelly and A. J. Wampler,
being the contestants. The vote was very
large, 1278 being cast. Of these Donnelly
received 807 and Wampler 471. The dele
gate ticket elected is given in the list below.
The following is the defeated ticket: Danie
O'Connor, William H. Griffin, James Ma

Mookuead, April 24.—This has been a
booming and boomerang day for the Nelson
faction of the Republican party of the Fifth
distii.-t. The Nelsonites came up in full
strength flushed with iheir work yesterday at
Fergus Falls being with here and there a
change, the same men. When the morning
trains arrived Nelson's brass band welcomed
the incoming throng and it tooted at inter
vals during the day. Among the Nelson
conventionists there was but little caucusing,
there seeming to be a quiet understanding
that their plans were made and nothing re
mained but to carry out the cut and dried
work of the bosses. During the
morning a caucus of St. Louis county and
adjoining counties was held to promote the
chances of Col. Graves for delegate to Chi
cago, a full report whereof is given in the
routine account below. The delegates gen
erally were brimstone toward the Kindred
convention, but they were well in band and
but little of the tire came out in their public
work. The Blame sentiment was red hot
and the candidates for delegates were vouched
for as truly original Blame men, without
guile. Gov. Gilman presided with the ut
most blandness, and on the surface of things
all was lovely, though an undercurrent was

hate that had astracised twelve thousand Re
publicans was rather an ugly policy after
At 9:00 a conference was held at Col.
Grave's room at the Grand Pacific to boom
that gentleman's chance for delegate to
Chicago. Some twenty-five attended from
St. Louis, and adjoining counties, with R. C.
Mitchell as chairman. The first resolution
offered was in favor of Blame. After a good
deal of informal talk It was adopted, request

Then came up the question of a com
promise with the Kindred convention. A
motion was made that members of tbe con
vention should not favor a compromise.
Box, of Crookston, and Bailey and Scott, of
Duluth, opposed a compromise. Bailey,
Laroke and Whitney spoke for peace, de
siring such action to prevail as to end the
factions in the district, and advised waiting
for overtures from the Holmes-Kindred
Several speakers were •bitter against
tbe Kindred faction and finally a consider
able majority voted in favor of no com
promise^and tbe remainder abstained from
Next came a motion to support Col. Graves
for delegate to Chicago. This was opposed
by Z. A. Scott on the ground that Graves
was not an available or representative man.
This brought out Whitney, Mitchell, Swan
strom and Bailey in bis favor. Undying
hostility to compromise was again worked
over, Bailey growing vehement. On a ris
ing vote the motion was adopted, fourteen
in favor, one (Scott) opposed. After agreeing
to sit together and try to act in harmony the
conference dispersed, each one being en
joined to boom Graves among tbe other del
The Nelson Convention,
The convention wa3 cajled to order at
twelve o'clock by Gilman. A delegate from
St. Louis county nominated Gilman for tem
porary chairman as a recognition of the great
obligation under which the Republican
party of the district bad ■ been
laid two years ago by his
services as chairman of the congressional
committee: No other nomination being
made, Gilman said he cordially accepted the
duty as an expression of appreciation of h is
services, but there wa3 no time for speech
making, the dinner bell, would ring txo soon.
The chair called for the nomination of two
secretaries. M. E. Clipp, of Fergus
Falls, named E. E. Corliss, of Otter Tail, O.
H. Hubbard, of Crow Wing, was also
nominated.QA motion followed that the
chair appoint a committee of five on creden
tials. A delegate from Marshall county,
moved a committee of seven owing to the
ruction in some counties of the district.
This amendment was voted down as it was
not on the cut and dried programme.
Tbe chairman read from a slip he took
from his vest pocket the following: J. 11.
Rhodes, Morrison county; J. A. Moore,
Becker; M. I. Matthews, Big Stone; H. E.
Strom, Kittson; Ole Kram, Douglas; Mr.
The chairman appointed a committee of
five on resolutions, as follows: H. W. Brown,
Marshal; R. C. Mltch'el, St. Louis; Mr.
Payne, Crow Wing; Mr. Stone, Steam's;
Mr. Waite, Stevens.
G. A. Barto moved a recess to two o'clock,
and having been in session twenty minutes
tbe convention adjourned.
The afternoon session was called to order
at 2:15. The committee on credentials re
ported all the counties of tbe district repre
sented except Cook and one delegate from
Cass, leaving the convention with one hun
dred and thirty-five votes.
Senator Stennison moved that the tempo
rary organization be continued as the perma
nent organization, adopted.
J. C. Flynn, of Mille Lacs, stated to the
convention that a body of Republicans had
prepared a petition which they desired to
present to the convention with a view to
heal the factional differences iv the district
in an equitable, manly way, which he hoped
the convention would consent to hear.
J. W. Mason, of Otter Tail, said before the
convention could entertain the matter It
must be informed what it was and who was
knocking at the door.
Mr. Buckman, of Benton, without bring
ing in who had been right or wrong in the
past, said it w-as the point of prudence and
and moderation to hear the petition that tbe
Kindred faction asked to present. He un
derstood that a body of Republicans asked
that they be admitted to representation on
the district committee and one delegate to
the Chicago convention, and they were not
asking too much; not more than tbe con
vention should be willing to concede, and
that done nothing would exist to mar the
harmony of tbe "grand old party" in the
great and growing Fifth district.
Mr. Corliss, of Ottex Tail, attacked the
request in an unplacable spirit. These men,
the "Kindred faction," by tbe call for this
convention had been invited here but they
stayed off. Why were they not here? Why
were they holding another convention in
another ball and keeping up their rebellion?
He concluded by moving the indefinite post
ponement of tbe whole subject.
Mr. Rhodes Morrison 6aid the most dan
.geroua thing this convention can do is to
deny the rieht of petition. He sup
ported Kindred years ago, and if
the men who have approached with
tbe manly olive branch of harmony were re
pulsed, a ereat wrone would be done and
the party hopelessly divided.
Mr. Wait, of Steams, said tbe best we can
do is to hear the men who came to us and
ask to be heard. They do not ask as a fac
tion but as Republicans, and ask nothins
but what any Republican should be willing
to freely srrant. Let us hear them and see
if the path to harmony may not be p >inted
out to us.
Col. Bush, of Wilkin, said the convention
was in duty bound to listen to the petition:
to receive and consider it and
fairly act upon it. He depicted the opposi
tion of two years ago saying that the conven
tion could not afford to let the opportunity
pass to wipe out strife and obliterate faction.
It should seek for harmony, ami it was in a
position to be magnanimous. Mr. Corliss.
of Otter Tail, jrot the floor, and rehearsed
more of his beligerent intolerance that pro
voked Rhodes, of Morrison, to earnestly de
clare that those who asked to be beard bad
that risrht, and it was the highest duty t i
hear them and then get Intelligently to un
derstand the subject thoroughly, and act not
upon prejudice and imagination, but upon
reason and judgment.
G -v. Barto said any body of men who re
fuse the right of petition go a long way in
the wron;; direction. The rigid thing was to
hono.- the petition and then act upon it in a
Mr. Cook, of Polk, thought to bear the pe
tition would be a departure from a fixed rule
and ought not to be indulged.
At this point Senator Stennison called for
the previous question upon the motion to
hear the petition.
Mr. Flynn again explained tbe spirit and
tenor of the petition, after which by a decis
ive vote the convention voted to remain and
hear the petition.
No objection being made W. W. Hartley,
of Brainerd came upou the platform aud
read the following.
ICOOBBBAS, Minn.. April 24. 1694.—The
convention in session at the Opera b

Brethren: Deeply deploring the schism
existing in our ranks as a party in the district
in the spirit of the resolutions adopted at
Fergus Falls on the 33d i:ist.. and
with a sincere. desire to restore
harmony in the district, believing a
united party to be paramount in a high de
gree to all personal differences and local di
visions, particularly this presidential year,
the undersigued duly constituted by a dele
gate caucus of tried and true Republicans
this morning assembled, beg leave to submit
the following which they are empower, i t i
propose as a basis on which we hope most
sincerely such desired harmonious action
may be achieved.
We propose to you the re-establishment
of Republican unity in this district. and the
extinguishment of all differences, pT
and past, by the appointment this day of a
new district committee so constituted as to
give each wing of the party hereto existing
representation in proportion to the vote casi
in the election of tes-i, the members thereof
from each faction to be selected by each body
That in the same spirit of harmony you
permit the body we represent to name one del
egate and alternate to the Chicago conven
tion, thus seudintr a united dele
gation, fitting in character an d
strength to a district nearly as large
as the whole state oi Indiana and
which we would join you in maintaining as
influential and strong in the national conven
tion as it is great in wealth and national
We present the foregoing as a just and
fair proposal and as in no degree comprom
ising the rights or privileges of Individual or
body, influenced only by considerations of
peace and good will for the Republican party
in this district.
[Signed] E. G. Holmes, Chairman.
W. W. HABTLBT, Secy.
Mr. Hartley thanked the convention for
its courtesy aud said that he and his associa
tion should continue to be true and faithful
Sir. Scott Duluth moved that the petition
be laid on the table.
On it being explained that the motion cut
off debate he withdeew it.
Mr. Bailey St. Louis opposed taking any
action that would give the Kindred faction
any representative either in the comittee or
on the delegation to Chicago.
Mr. Gates Stephens, moved that tbe peti
tion be denied.
Senator Buckman deprecated both the mo
tion and the action it contemplated.
Col. Bush at some length painted out the
effect of continuing two Republican organi
zations in the district. It weakened the in
fluence of the party at home aud abroad.
Double delegations would appear at all con
ventions and finally men would tire of the
eternal wrangle and call a mass convention
and the Republican candidates would disap
pear and the Democratic party come to the
front, and "what then," said the speaker.
A Voice—"We will elect Knute Nelson."
This brought down tbe house and broke
] down t c orator.
C. H. Graves, of Duluth, said that the sub
ject sbou d have tbe most careful
and deliberate consideration that injustice
might not be done and in this spirit he
moved that a committe of seven be appoint
ed to confer with the petitioners.
Mr. Gates said the outside faction asked
too much, but he bad no objection to a con
ference if there was any oue to confer
It was explained that the Holmes conven
tion bad appointed a committe of seven to
await the action of tee convention.
Geo. Barto said tbe Graves proposition was
the right thing.
Mr. Corliss, the Otter Tail kicker, made
another speech. He wsnted to go home,
and if there was any faction
al settlement to be made let it be done in the
counties. That was the Otter Tail plan.
The effect of this was to precipitate the vote
to appoint committee seven by call of coun

The convention next took a recess for
half an hour and the committee of seven
proceeded to room thirty-three, Grand Pa
cific, for a conference with tbe committee
from the Holmes' convention.
THE PETITION* REJECTED.
Upon the reassembling of tbe convention
Col. Graves submitted the following report:
We the commttee appointed to act, upon the
proposition submitted by Mr. Flynn, of
Mrorrson Co., report that we have examined
the call under which this convention was
called, and fine the same fair and just to all
Republicans of this district, recogniz
ing as it did tbe votes cast in the respective
counties for both Nelson and Kindred: that
there was no occasion for the calling of any
other convention to enable the Republican
voters of this district to cast their full share
in deciding party affairs, and your committee

committee of gentlemen who have appeared
before the convention to-day and these gen
tlemen stated that they were willing to ac
cept as a compromise of all previous dis
sension in the party the election in this con
vention of one man as delegate to Chicago
who should be named by them, and if that
was granted would abandon all
outside organization and act under tbe au
thority of the Republican convention and its
committee for the future. Your committee
suggested whether the appointment of a
proper proportion of Kindred men on the dis
trict committee and the passage of a resolu-
tion by this convention recommendinc: Mr.
