Their Business Session Concluded--
The Association of General Baggage
Agents reconvened at 9:30 o'clock yesterday
morning with President Marston in the
chair. Minutes of the preceding meeting
were read, and then new and unfinished
business was taken up.
A communication from J. C. Nicholace
of the Missouri Pacific asking for the
opinion of the convention on several im
portant points relative to pro-rating claims
on concealed losses, C. O. D. collections,
transfer charges, etc., was read.
Questions were taken up in regular order
and discussed, bringing out many points of
interest to all present. Several resolutions
were offered by different members m rela
tion to improved facilities for handling
business. This matter took up the rest of
the forenoon. ; ■
The meeting was called to order again at
2:30 o'clock and many subjects were intro
duced for further improving the work
ing of the railroad baggage department, the
most important matter of which was the
HANDLING OP BODIES
on passenger trains. It is now the custom
of different lines to receive bodies for trans
portation when accompanied by a certificate
from attending physician, stating that the
party died of no contagious disease.
it has occurred In many cases that physi
cians have from some cause or other,
probably to accommodate the parties send
ing the bodies, given these certificates,
although death was caused by diphtheria or
scarlet fever. There have also been brought
to light bodies of which death was caused
by small-pox, offered as baggage, certified
to by country physicians as scarlatina,
thus making the risk of carrying bodies
very great, unless protected by something
other than a physician's certificate.
A great many bodies are shipped that are
partially decomposed and emit an offensive
odor. These bodies have to be carried by
train baggagemen in their baggage car, and
ofttimes the stench from such is so great
that the baggageman cannot stand it. and
besides is in constant danger, as well as the
other train hands, of catching Borne horrible
disease. This matter having been put into
the hands of the convention, a committee
was appointed at the Boston meeting in
July last, with .1. D. Marstou, general
baggage agent of the Chicago, Bock
Island & Pacific as chairman, to ascertain
the best means to overcome this trouble.
The committee, after much hard work and
patient research on the part of the chair
man, discovered what is believed to be the
best appliance yet discovered for this pur
pom. The matter has become one of great
importance and the state boards of health
have been in constant communication with
the baggagemen to adopt some means
whereby the transportation of bodies dead
from contagious diseases could be stopped.
Till: (oMMITTKK REPORTED
that it had found meat diversity in rules in
force on different railroads and in different
states concerning the matter, and thai i:
had discovered an eftTcacluoß appliance in the
shape of an antiseptic sack made of rubber,
which is air tight and in which the casket
can Ih> placed. The committee recommended
the adoption of the following rules:
First — The transportation of the bodies
of persons dead of small-pOX. Asiatic
cholera or yellow fever, shall lie absolutely
Second—All other dead bodies may be
transported, provided they are encased in
an antiseptic Interment sack, hermeticalh
sealed, in addition to iK'inir i:i a coftin. and
this inclosed by a tiL rlit wooden box.
Third—Every dead body must be accom
panied by a certificate Of death, from a
physician or board of health, and n written
certificate from the shipping undertaker,
that the coi p>e lias been pre
pared for transportation strictly iv
accordance with Rule No. "2.
The committee further recommends that a
form of certificate be drawn out which both
the physician and undertaker will be re
quired 10 (ill out. which will make it an im
possibility for them to smuggle bodies dead
from contagious disease into baggage cars
for transportation, without leaving them
selves open to prosecution. The report was
This concluded the business before the
convention, and the usual resolutions of
thanks were adopted previous to adjourn
It was eecided to hold the next meeting
at Cincinnati next January.
To-day the association will visit Minne

usher. Last evening a progressive euchre
party was given in one of the Ryan parlors
by Mrs. Phillips, -Mrs. Marston and Mrs.

passed by those who participated.
I* There 100 much Care Taken of ii
by Train !luiul>>
When the meeting of thebeggagemastenl
association convened yesterday morning the
president announced that he feared that
there was ■ growing tendency on the part
of members of the association to allow
trunks and satchels to go through to their
destination uninjured. He had been in
formed that even on long runs some of the
baggage reached the terminus in as good
condition as when put on the car, even
when the trunks were bail affairs that
might easily have been opened. He hotted
these rumors were not true; he could hardly
believe then was any foundation for them.
Certainly DO member of the association
who appreciated at its true worth
the Importance of his calling would be so
false to his trust: and if any were growing
negligent i» this matter be trusted that they
would reform at once.
A delegate from Ohio remarked that he
feared there was some truth in the presi
dent's remarks. He did not wish to call
names, but he knew of a baggageman on
the same road with himself who had carried
a valise which he knew to be unlocked for
a hundred miles or more without even open
ing it. He was almost stunned with appre
hension when he heard of this conduct
which was, to say the least, extremely repre
hensible. How any self-respecting bag
gagcinaster could allow himself to fall Into
such disreputable habits was beyond his
comprehension, and the grave question of
public safety was involved in this matter.
Supposing one of these pieces of baggage,
so carelessly allowed to go unexainined,
should contain dynamite or other destructive
explosives that might send a whole train
load of innocent passengers
INTO ETERNITY IX A HOLY MINUTE.
lie shuddered to think of the awful de
struction of life and property that might re
sult from even a late negligence in this
. A delegate from Indiana stated that none
could fail to recognize the truth of the I re
marks of the foregoing speakers. They re
vealed a state of affairs that was disgrace
ful and still was a matter of public noto
riety. It was not always thus. He used
to wear a clean shirt almost every day that
he took from the baggage of passengers.
Now how was it? He had to buy his own
Shirts. [Groans.] Now why were these
things thus? He did not agree with the
previous speakers wholly In placing all the
blame the poor baggagemasters. No doubt
some of them were recreant to the great
trust reposed in them. But lie believed that
the chief trouble lay at the doors of Ike
railroad companies themselves. Time was
when they used to supply axes and other
implements for the use of the baggage
masters in performing the legitimate and
arduous duties of their position. It was
then I comparatively easy matter to get
into a trunk and strew the entire line of the
road with wearing apparel. But axes no
longer formed part of the
lie also thought that the trunk-smashers
should be advised of the trouble they were
entailing by making the baggage so absurdly
strong. To do this was to defeat the ends
for which each baggageman should con
sider it his duty to zealously lakor.
A delegate from lowa begged to offer a
resolution which he thought whould cover
the ground, a* follows:
Resolved, That the National Association
of Baggage Smashers, in convention as
sembled, deplores the growing neglect and
disregard of the plainest principles of our
Resolved, That we call on every member
of the convention to strive by both precept
and example to bring back the palmy days
when pieces of baggage were more easily
and more frequently opened.
The resolution was adopted, and the
meeting adjourned for dinner, at
least that is the report brought in by
the reporter assigned to attend the meeting
in the morning. There was something
suspicious about it, though, and another
man was sent in the afternoon, whose re
port is found in another place.
THE CONTUMACIOUS CA7IPER6.
Ought They to be Punished for
Bunting; that BtHfJfl
There was in certain circles yesterday
more or less talk of the closing act of the
First regiment at White Bear, when mem
bers of the regiment burned Adjt.Gen.Mac-
Carthyin effigy. A sentiment was expressed
some ex-officers that while the act was
hasty and done probably in a thoughtless
spirit, its effect on the guard would be un
favorable, as it would tend to create a feel
ing throughout the state of a lack of dig
nity and soldierly character on the part of
the militia. When considered in its rela
tion to the refusal of Got. llubbard to re
lease Col. Bend from arrest during camp it
might be construed as an insult to the
coniiiiaiider-iii-chief. * "Possibly those who
participated," said an ex-oflicer, "are sub
ject to a court-martial. Nearly every act
of a soldier is touched upon by the articles
of war, and there is an omnibus clause con-
Bering any and all others. In lie regular
army the articles are read to the soldiers
ones in six months, and it might be well to
have the same law as to the militia."
The article of war referred to above is
article 88, as follows:
All crimes not capital and all disorders and
neglects which officers and soldiers may be
guilty Of to the prejudice of pood order and
military dis inline, though not mentioned in
tin- forejroinjr articles of war are to be taken
cognizance of by it pcneral or regimental,

cording to the nature and degree of the
oirense, and punished at the discretion of
A BRUNETTE'S BREAK.
l.oni* Liverpool, the New Colored
An unusual riffle of excitement was
created among the colored folk yesterday
afternoon by a bad break of Louis Liver
pool, the newly-appointed policeman, who
was named for that position as the expo
nent of the colored people. Liverpool's ap
pointment, while satisfactory to one party
of colored citizens, appears to have been a
cause for jealousy to another, and the latter
began to systematically tantalize him. No
ticeable among this number was Tom Jef
ferson, better known as "big Tom." a man
who was at one time chief "striker*' at one
of Churn's gambling houses. Liverpool
owes Jefferson 810, and the latter followed
him around yesterday morning trying to ob
tain it. Every place Liverpool went into
Jefferson followed and dunned him for the
money. About i o'clock Liverpool went
into a saloon on Minnesota sheet and Jef
ferson followed.askingthe question "When
are you going to pay me that S10?" Liver
pool turned around and said, "I'll pay you
now." coupling the words with a left
handed blow on Jefferson's lower jaw. The
blow knocked Jefferson through' the door
out on the sidewalk. When be got Up it
was to learn that his jawbone had been
broken, lie reported Hie matter at the
police station, and was sent to City Phy
sician Ancker.who set the bone. Liverpool,
although no o-'» duly, wore his star and
buttons at the lime. He also reported what
had occurred, and the chief suspended him
until this morning, when he will be taken
before ay r Rich and probably stripped of
his buttons. The city officials " and public
generally Join in saying that Liverpool
served the man right, SO it is possible that
he will be reprimanded and allowed to go.
AFTER A WILD (.ohm:.
The Bird Fled In Time and Eluded
A few days ago ('apt. Rresettc quietly
left St. Paul for Chicago in search of Ed
Helcher, a young man whose love of con
nubial felicity led him to adjust the bridal
noose once too often. Helcher, so the
story goes, came to St. Paul last autumn
from Chicago, when he left his wife, made
so about a year before, to remain until his
return, lie was a bricklayer by trade and
was engaged on some work about the Union
block. Shortly afterwards he became ac
quainted with Miss Elvira Monti, whose
home is the grape-covered cottage on the
corner of Fourth and Cedar streets. With
the usual success of a giddy deceiver, he
wooed and won .Miss Monti, and the two
were married late in the winter, a few
weeks ago Helcher let; St Paul for Chi
cago, and a little later it was discovered
that lie had another wife. The mother of
the deceived gui at once made a complaint
against Uelcher. and it was with a view
of escorting him back to St. Paul
that the captain made his trip. When he
reached Chicago be easily learned where
Uelcher was to be found when no officer
was looking for him. When the latter was
around, however, Iloicher was out. In
quiries among his friends disclosed nothing.
Some looked wise, .some looked foolish and
scratched the place where brains are wont
to be. One said be had gone East, another
South, while some hinted that he had hid
right hi his own city. At all events the
captain found him not and yesterday re
turned to St. Paul, good-natured, smiling
and alone. He says that Helcher was ad
vised of his earning in time to get out of

He Claims That Paternal Cruelty
Drove Him to Crime.
Henry Eichhorn, a nice-looking young
fellow 17 years of age, was arrested by De
tective Kenaley yesterday afternoon for
passing off forged paper. Eichhorn is a
son'of a saloonkeeper by that name, who
does business at Seven corners. Some time
ago he left home to make his own living
because,as he alleges, of an ill-natured step
mother. He had learned the trade of paper
hanging, and made a good living up to
three months ago. when he got out of em
ployment. The idea of procuring money
by forced paper, however, did not occur
to him until a few days ago, when he, ac
cording to his story, found a check for 11
lying on the street. lie got it cashed at some
place on Third street. When the money for
that was spent he thought of writing out
some other checks, which he did, using the
the name of John Matheis, his former em
ployer. He thus drew up four or five, the
amounts varying from 111 to 525. Yes
terday morning he passed off two for 525,
each on the French bakery near Seven cor
ners. The checks were soon found to have
been forged. The police were at once no
tified and given a description of the youth
who passed the paper. The description led
at once to young Eichhorn's arrest, who
admitted his guilt.
The Report Iflade by the Signal Ser
The severe storm which passed over St.
1 Paul early yesterday morning, according to
advices received by Signal Service Officer
Lyons, generated on the eastern slope of the
Rocky mountains and in the immediate
vicinity of Fort Cu.->ter. The storm started
at that point shortly before midnight on
Wednesday and at an early hour yesterdey
it was centrally located at Moorhead. It was
accompanied by rains, general throughout
Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, the
most .severe rain falling along the Minne
sota and Northwestern territory. The
.storm covered an area of about 300 miles
from the center in each direction. Such
storms are invariably accompanied with a
tornado at the south or southeast of the !
storm center, and it was this particular part |
of the storm which touched St PauL The
natural results of such storms are cold
winds and dry. clearing weather, which fol
lows in the wake of the alarm. The cool
ness of last night might be expected to in
crease gradually until this morning, but not
to any alarmtng extent About to-morrow
it will begin to grow warm again. The
cold wave covers about the same area as
the storm, and will follow the latter In an

A very serious drowning accident was
; happily averted at White Bear on Tuesday
| afternoon by the timely arrival of assist- I
ance. It seems that Rev. Mr. McAfee, a
retired minister living at the lake, in com
pany with R. M. Johnson, his wife and
child, and John Light, went out in a frail
skiff for a pleasure ride. Mrs. Johnson fur
ther amused herself by casting a line for
fish. When some distance out on the lake
Mrs. Johnson caught a large tish, and in
' the pulling-in process the boat was cap
sized. The entire party clung to the boat,
which furnished a buoy for nearly two
hours and until assistance came. When
rescued they were all In an extremely
, exhausted condition, and would have been
unable to cling to the upturned boat much
longer. They were taken to the shore in a
skiff, and soon recovered from the effects of
their long stay in the lake.
