THE 11KFORM CLUB.
Remark* by ltev. W. W. Satterlee and Rev.
- ' Mr. LnwtM.
The interest at the Harrison Hall Reform
club meeting yesterday was greater than
usual. Rev. Mr. Satterlee read the 30th
chapter of Ezekiel and commented on it.
He also referred to a scurrilous article in
one of the morning papers, attacking the
Ladies' National Temperance union for the
part they had taken in the recent election.
Rev. Mr. Lewis, who had been announced
to speak, was then introduced and spoke for
thirty minutes in a very acceptable manner,
giving his experience in the New York strug
gle, and relating many pleasing anecdotes
illustrating the general work.
The three principal enemies to the success
of the cause were appetite, the saloons and
the money interest.
The work commenced by the Washington
lon society and carried on by
the various temperance organiza
tions, but none of these movements
bad been as successful as the present na
tional movement. The work was the work
of good, and temperance people must trust
in God for future success. The license
question was examined, and the conclusion
reached that God cannot license an evil.
The people of Maine have had more exper
ience with this question than any other state,
and they believe that prohibition does pro

The Last Sad Rite*.
The obsequies of the late Henry Hamm
were observed yesterday afternoon. The
cortege comprised the Knights of Pythias,
the Sons of Herman, the Druids and the
Turners, besides about 100 carriages, and
the whole was headed by Danz's full band.
The corpse was taken from the Knights of
Pythias hall, at the corner of Washington
and Fourth avenue south, from whence the
line of march was taken, going up Washing
ton to NicoUet avenue and thence across
suspension bridge direct to Maple Hill cem
etery, where the body was interred with the
rites of the various orders. It was one of
the longest funeral processions ever seen in

The police court has been barren of Inter
est lately. As a temperance lecturer Judge
Porter is a decided success, and he has a
way of fixing a point, when he makes one
upon some of the benzine soaked bums that
carries weight with it, It was remarked by
everyone that for a city of its size Mankato
was remarkably free from disturbances on
Saturday night. Another commendable
thing connected with our city government
was the retaining of a large force from the
fire department at City hall during the pa
rade under orders, to guard against the pos
sible breaking out of fire, which fortunately
did not come. A'-.r'y,
Reports from the front on the Cannon
Valley (Rock Island) road say the construc
tion corps is busily engaged in crowding the
work forward, and that there is no danger
but what they will be able
to comply with their requirements.
If the "Cannon Valley" should strike court
house square, according to their present sur
vey, who would mourn I Certainly no one
if they would only knock the old court house
and jail into smithereens. Blue Earth is one
of the richest counties in Minnesota, and a
meaner set of county buildings would be
hard to find. The location of the grounds
has no doubt had something to do with pre
venting the erection of better ones, and now
that the railroad seems likely to render it a
still less desirable spot it would seem the
proper thing to do to set about securing some
other spot. These thoughts are suggested by
the remarks of some of our Saturday- visitor's
and are offered without extra charge.
Saturday was a memorable one for Man
kato. It was a day of wild enthusiastic re
joicing, and a night ofglare and glamour of
torches, of Chinese lanterns and transparen
cies, and of brilliant illumination. It was a
night such as has seldom been seen any
where, and such an one as the youngest
child who saw it will always remember. It
was such an exhibition as has never been
seen in southern Minnesota, and as a polit
ical demonstration has had no equal in the
The day and night were as perfect as could
well be imagined in the midst of the glo
rious Indian summer which we are having.
The preparations for celebrating the great
victory achieved after such a tremendous
struggle had been most elaborate and
complete, and were brought to a
perfect finish under chairman P. H. Carney,
and a corps of able and efficient : assistants.
Not a single bitch or clashing of rival inter
ests occurred to mar the festivities of the oc- |
casion. The fact of the business was every
Democratic heart was so full of joy and en
thusiasm as to leave no room for
any other feeling or sentiment.
The arrangements included the attendance
of visiting delegations from adjoining towns,
and from early morn till nightfall they came
pouring in by ones and twos and in solid
delegations, filling up the city and making it
plain to even our Republican brethren that
"the woods were (literally) full of Demo
There has never been a time since the
telegraph announced the election of Cleve
land, on the morning of the sth, when the
Mankato Democracy have not been strong in
the faith that right would prevail at last, and
that nothing would be allowed to prevent the
will of the people from being declared. So
on Wednesday evening last it was decided to
celebrate on Saturday, instead of awaiting
the slow process of the official count.
Early in the evening the forces began to
rally and there was hurrying to and fro of
marshals on horseback, and the mustering of
the squadron and the gathering of the foot
men, a mighty host of them, each of whom
went first to the city hall, where the torches,
lanterns and'transparencies were served out to
them by Henry Himmelinann,Jr.,the efficient
member of the committee, who had charge
of this department. •' They were then formed
on the several cross streets .in division, the
right of each resting on Front and when all i
was ready, at the word of command marched
up Front street.

from every township in Blue Earth county
but two and from St. James, St. Peter,
Janesvtllc, Blue Earth City, Good Thunder,
and was beaded by the Winnebago Agency
band, a detachment vboot one hundred
strong having come in with the band. The
St. James crowd, seventy strong under J. J.
Thornton came in on a special train and
carried at the bead of their column during
the march a transparency bearing the in
scription, "St. James Democracy," and on
the reverse side,"Hurrah for J.J. Thorn ten." !
The St. Peter boys were also on band in :

one wheeled gig that attracted so much atten

procession by Master Louis Wiser, bearing
appropriate mottoes upon its cloth cover. The
Janesville delegation numbered sixty-three.
Among the many transparencies carried

The line of march was as follows: From
Ci»y hali up Front to Marshall, out Marshall
to State, State to Byron, Byron to Second,
Second to Liberty, Liberty to Broad, Broad
to Warren, Warren to Second, Second to
Cherry, Cherry to Broad, Broad to Plum,
Plum to Second, Second to - Vine, Vine to
Front, and down Front to the Mankato
house, where the column was
massed, both - foot and horse,
and the sneakers were Introduced.
As the head of .the' column filed out upon
Front street led , by the military band and
with horses four abreast the scene was Indis
cribably grand and beautiful. The extreme
length of Front street, particularly la lower
town, wan one continuous Illumination,
nearly all business buildings being well
lighted and some of them brilliantly so. It
was one flash and glare of light from torches,
Chinese lanterns, and the street, Illumina
tions, and from the top of Bunker Hill the
immense bonfires lighted up the whole city
and were reflected against to the sky. The
streets were thronged with men, women and
children, who would take up the shouts of
the marching men and echo them back with
a will. The column as it came opposite some
fine illumination would break oat in cheers
that would run down the whole line of 2,000
marching men a* they passed toe same spot.
Either the infection must have extended to
some of the Republican spectators or else
there were none of them out for it was an al
most continuous, deafening yell during toe
whole time of the march. Everyone in the
city seemed to be rejoicing, and ii there were
any that felt bad they must have staid at
As before stated Front street was one con
tinuous illumination, and at several points
along the line flags and mottoes were dis
played. Ed. Cobsandler and Anton Dackel
mann had the national colors suspended
over the street between their places of busi
ness bearing the inscription, "German-
American Republicans and Democrats won
the victory," while farther op the street on
the German colors, also suspended over the
street, was the Inscription, "The nation has
ratified the First ward's . choice." At the
Mankato bouse the national colors were
again suspended, while the mafic figures |
219, on another banner, kept it company.
While there were ,too many illuminations i
to be told in a brief sketch like this, there
were a number of specially fine ones. Wo.
Bierbaur's, large brewery above the
oil mill and off of the line of march, was
very finely lighted up,as also were the houses
and grouuiis of Judge James Brown and
Mrs. P. H. Carney, also off the line of
march. The City hotel, H. Illmmelmann,
proprietor, wu* unquestionably the
most extensive Illumination of the
city. A . four story building
containing over a hundred windows it was
the aoit conspicuous and grand of all, being
fairly one blaze of white light, A large flag
was also suspended across the street. A
Urge bonfire was lighted in the street by (.to. ;
A. Clark's residence as -he bead of the col- !
umn approached, and one was also built la <
front of the Meagber block on Front street.
Mrs. W. E. Peak and Mrs. Perry Zimmer
man each had 219 candles lighted In their
residence on Front street. The following
were some of the finest illuminations of res
idences: . A. B. Smith, J. C Wise, L. Hen

The very lengthy route was made in good
order, and when horse and footmen were
packed in front of the Maukato bouse Hon.
J. B. Brisbln, of St. Paul, was announced,
who made one of his usual eloquent and manly
speeches. He was followed by the silvery
tongued M. S. Wilkinson, the* lion . J. j.
Thornton, of St. James, Hon. D. Buck, Man
kato, and Col. T. O'Leary, of Avoca, who
were cheered again and again while speak
ing. From first to last the demonstration
was a complete success, and in point
ot numbers was. • perfectly over
whelming. No such political demonstration
has ever been seen in Mankato, nor in fact
in any city in Minnesota in Its entire history.
Such enthusiasm as was manifested last
Saturday has never < been shown
at any Republican victory, and
Democrats are jubilant over its success. The
many marks of regard for the Globe which
were manifested on the transparencies shows
how its reliability as a newspaper is appre
ciated here.. Mankato Democrats have shown
how they can vote and they have also shown
how they can rejoice and when the best bu

mark of the spectators was exactly in ac

roller skating with remarkable ease and
grace, "Our Queen Mab" executes the most
difficult and dangerous feats without the
least hesitation or difficulty. She was re

There are many at the age trom thirty to sixty
who are troubled with frequent evacuations of
the bladder, often accompanied by a slight
smarting or burning sensation and weakening
the system in a manner the patient cannot ac
count for. On ' examining the urinary deposits
atopy sediment will often be found, and some

the color will be of & thin, or milkish hue, again
changing to a dark and torpid appearance.
