Between Blende .son uutl Glenn.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June Maj. Hender
son, of Minneapolis, called at the postoflice
department to-day and was introduced to
Postmaster General Vilas. It was their
first meeting. Col. Vilas said lie had con
siderable acquaintance with Maj. Henderson
from his indorsements, many of which came
from Now York gentlemen whom he knew
well. An official in the department said
Col Vilas has made no decision in regard to
the Minneapolis postoffice. The office seems
to lie between Henderson and Glenn, Chair
man Doran of the state committee has In
dorsed tho latter, and Dr.* Ames is urging
him with great vigor. Henderson's indorse
ment comes from all ranks of the Democratio
party and is excellent. Mr. Kelly has in
dorsed neither Glenn nor Henderson, al
though. I inn told, he has told Dr. Ames he
would use all his Influence with the postmas
ter general for Glenn's appointment. How
tver, another story is that Mr. Kelly wants
Ames to tako the postoffice for reasons that
may appear later on. He is said to be averse
to Glenn's taking the postoffice and leaving
Ames In the Held for congressional honors.
1 (rive you both stories. Take your choice.
It may be Kelly will put the postoihce in Hen
derson's hands after all.
Maj. Henderson leaves for Minnesota to
Mayer Ames and Col. Glenn will arrive
home" from their Washington trip this morn
ing, and it is predicted that they return with
the consciousness that their mission has been
accomplished with satisfaction to themselves,
yet there are a few who will uot abandon the
hope, fast becoming forlorn, that some oue
other than Col. Glenn will win the postoflice
prize. J. C. Oswald feels quite confident
that J. J. Ankeny is the coming man,
while others are as sanguine that Maj.
K. tt. Henderson will tome out victorious.
The major is still In Washington laboring
with the powers that be, aud is courting the
aid of Secretary Manning. J. J. Ankeny has
remained at home, but Winthrop Young has
been in Washington for some time as Mr.
Ankenv's advocate. But Col. Glenn has the
municipal administration behind him. which
is considered most potential, and is backed by
an overwhelming majority of the people.
The strife over the postoffice has given rise
to many conflicting rumors reflecting upon
the Democracy of the candidates. Col. Glenn
is chanted with bolting his party two years
ago, and Maj. Henderson is charged with hav
ing peremptorily refused to contribute to the
Cleveland campaign fund, aud again, with re
fusing to vote at the recent municipal elec
tion, while Mr. Aukeny is charged with op
posing Mayor Ames in the recent canvass.
While there may be some truth in the allega
gations. the tendency usually is to make a
mountain out of a molehill in such cases.

• 'Jim rule" Morrisey |Says She -was
Jealous of miss Wheeler.
Yesterday morning J. W. Morrisey and
several members of the Rhea company in
cluding Mr. and Mrs. 11. G. Wilson and
Miss Julia heeler, arrived at the West
hotel from Duluth, where it appears that
the company disbanded on Tuesday. The
enterprising "Jimmie" was questioned yes
terday while he was engaged in making a
dicker for tickets for the party to Chicago
by the Omaha limited. The inventor of
the Abbott kiss threw up both hands at
the mention of the Rhea's name, and
pounded the counter to emphasize his
"Rhea'. She devil!" he exclaimed as he
wildly gesticulated. "Why is it that petti
coats should protect a woman- in every thing
she does? We were to go to Fargo and
Winnipeg, back to Grand Forks, Anoka, and
then to Kochester, _. V., where we closed.
At the end of the fourth act Tuesday night
at Duluth she sent me one of her wild
Freuchy notes, saying she should insist upon
closing the season that night. 1 tried to get
her to go on to Winnipeg and finish out the
week, but no; she would do nothing that was
reasonable. So we biokeupandl am send
ing my company back to New York.after hav
ing had it out for ten months. What
was the matter? Jealousy, that was
all. Miss Wheeler, one of our
ladies, is extremely beautiful — 19
years old and as innocent as a kitten; don't
know her own beauty. Of course she will in
five years, but that is neither here nor there.
Well, would you believe it, Khea was so jeal
ous of her that she'd turn
BLUE, GREEK, YELLOW
couldn't bear to hear her talk, see her cat, or
even look at her. Why should Khea, who is
40 years old, have been jealous of a mere child
like Miss Wheeler? Oh, it was absurd. Just
because I showed Miss Wheeler ordinary
courtesy she accused me of 'turning the whole
company against her.' Why should I try to
create discord? I got 40 per cent, and
Khea 60. Do you suppose I'd work against
my own interests in such a way? No, sir;
only a woman will do that. I've managed the
most of 'em, but I must confess that Khea is
the most inconsistent, crankiest, absurd bit of
femininity I have ever met with. I take the
management of the Standard theater at New
York, and I don't think I'll bother myself
about any more female stars for a while. It
was two years ago in this very city that she
telegraphed me asking me to manage her. I
had Kistori then, but went on to Chicago,
and, well, to cut the story short, made a con
tract with her. I have had great trouble in
making her "take," and ten times have had
to send home for money because she has in
sisted upon getting every cent her contract
called for. Well, I'm glad it's over. The
next time I'm out here I'll havo a company of
Miss Wheeler, whose beauty, according to
Morrisey, drove Rhea wild with envy, is a
tali, graceful girl, and in face and appear
ance strongly resembles Mary Anderson.
She spent yesterday afternoon riding with
Col. John T. West and daughter, and left
with the balance of the company for Chi
cago last evening. Mile. Rhea remained in
in Duluth with two of the company. In
answer to Morrisey's statements, she says:
"The accusation of jealousy is frivolous.
How can I be jealous of some one who is not
a rival? Miss Julia Wheeler is a beautiful, a
charming girl. Mr. Morrisey thinks so, very
much. He does all he can to push her for
ward and snub me. I brought her out and
taught her to pluy parts which inlay myself.
Would a jealous woman do thi.tr'
Special to the Globo.
Brai_ekd, Minn., June 3.— Rhea, the
charming but erratic actress, was engaged

not come. A large audience was disap
pointed in consequence.
A BRILLIANT W'JIDDJXG.
An East Side Couple Follow the
One of the most brilliant and pleasant
weddings of the season occurred last even
ing at the residence of Mrs. John Walter,
corner Eighth street and Fifth
avenue southeast, when Miss Marie
J. Walter and Arthur E. Slater
were united in marriage. The hour set ;
for the ceremony was 8 o'clock, and long
before that hour the residence of the bride's
mother was rilled with young people, com
prising the beauty of the East side. At
8:20 Miss Marie appeared, dressed in a
handsome suit of cream silk, "trimmed
with lace. She leaned upon
the arm of the groom, who was
attired in the regulation wedding suit. In
the parlor, where were assembled the forty
five guests, stood the Rev. Thomas Mc-
Clary, the officiating clergyman. The
young couple • wrs preceded by a young
brother and sister of the soon-to-be bride.
The bridesmaids and groomsmen were three
each in number. After the ceremony a
sumptuous banquet was spread, during
which sweet music was rendered. - The
house was brilliantly lighted, while the r ve
randa at the front of the house
was " rendered decidedly roman
tic with Chinese lanterns. "The
presents received by the young couple were
numerous and 'costly, and consisted of
- everything of use to people just entering
upon the troubled sea of matrimony. Mr.
Slater has for a long time past been in the
employ of Whiting & Carlisle, and is well
and favorably known in this city. Mr. and
Mrs. Slater wisely concluded to ' dispense
with a wedding trip, and will at once go
to housekeeping with the bride's mother.
Barber* Bvqnett the mayor to Clove
All shops on Sunday.
The Barbers' Brotherhood held a well
attended meeting last evening, at which it
was unanimously decided to enforce the
law compelling the closing of barber shops
on Sunday. The following resolutions ad
dressed to the mayor were adopted:
Resolved, That it is the sense of this meet
ing, representing seven-eights Of the harbors
of the city, that his honor the mayor of Min
neapolis be requested to direct tbe enforce
ment of that portion of the penal code relat
ing to barbers and barber shops.
Whereas, As we think this request is just and
upright in the eyes of the citizens of tho com
monwealth, it is directed that a copy of these
resolutions bo furnished his honor the mayor
auu the public press.
J. T. Baksr, Vice-President.
P. J. P..T. it. Secretary.
The secretary was instructed to wait upon
Mayor Ames, who is expected to arrive
from the East to-day, ami request him to
take action in accordance with the spirit of
the resolutions. It is expected that all
shops will be closed Sunday with the excep
tion of those of the West and Nicollet
hotels, run by Sheigßros., who propose to
keep open for the purpose of making a test
case. The penalty prescribed by the vio
lators of the law is a line from Si to 5.0. or
from one to five days in jail, or both.at the
discretion of the court.
Property Owners Ask That Street
Opening be Abandoned.
The city hall elevator was kept busy for
a half hour yesterday afternoon carrying up
to the committee rooms the citizens owning
property along Twentieth avenue north and
also on Plymouth avenue. The occasion
was a meeting of the council committee on
roads and bridges to consider the proposed
opening, widening and extending of the two
streets named. The commissioners had al
ready appraised the damages and benefits
growing out of the improvements and the
property owners entered vigorous protests
against the same. Somo claimed that the
assessments were double what they should
be, and furthermore that in case of the pro
posed widening of Twentieth avenue north
twenty feet the council had added ten feet
to the petition. For this reason the citizens
prayed that all proceedings be set aside.
The long listened to statements and their
took the matter under advisement.' The
proposition is to extend the avenue through
Forest Heights, from Lyndalo avenue to
the city limits. The proposition to change
Plymouth avenue in order to straighten it,
was the subject of another protest. The
street makes a jog of 100 feet at -Humboldt
avenue, and it is proposed to straighten it
so that it will be 100 feet to one side of the
present course. It was claimed that the
change can be of no essential benefit to the
people living and owning property along
the street, and also that it is only advocated
by those who are largely interested in prop
erty in the business center of Plymouh ave
nue. This was also taken unper advise
Festivities Incident to the Corner
Stone Ceremony To-Morrow.
The Society Dania is making elaborate
preparations for the laying of the corner
stone of its new hall, corner Cedar avenue

coins; and copies of tho leading newspapers
of the two cities. In the evening an inter
esting program will be rendered at Har
raonia hall, consisting of music, addresses
and tableaux. A grand ball will wind up
the day's festivities.
THE HOLY ROSARY FAIR.
It Score, a Great Success and is
Doing- Well Financially.
Dense crowds visited Market hall, the
scene of the Holy Rosary church fair, last
evening, and until a late hour kept up the
festivities. Nothing is allowed to drag,
and if one may be allowed to., judge from
appearances, this fair will net the church
several thousand dollars. The ballotting
for the various articles goes on with un
ceasing vigor, and much interest is mani
fested in that direction. Last night the
various votes stood: For the most popular
detective, M. Quinlan, 100; M. Hoy. 5;
William Gleason, 3. Most popular tem
perance society. Catholic Temperance so
ciety. 51; A. O. H. society, 15; Holy Name
society, 100; Most popular young
lady, Nellie Hall, 47; Mamie
Gill, 03; Alice Ackeman, 100.
The friends of each person mentioned are
laying in ambush and before the fair closes
will, they say, roll up tremendous major
ities for their candidate.
The Journal, of which Rev. Father
Byrnes is the editor, commands a good sale.
The little sheet is a gem in its way and re
flects the fair news in a clear and concise
manner. . "I don't see how you men find
time to do so much," remarked the editor
last evening, as he was talking to a re
porter. "It takes all my time to edit this
little sheet and say my prayers." The
musical program last evening was an inter
esting one, and was participated in by
Misses McGuirk, Gleason, Calhoun, Fitz
gerald, Waddick, Ackerson, Speakman and
Stapleton. and Messrs. Baker, Scallon and
Stapleton. It is probable that the fair will
continue next week.
The Haugc Synod.
The session of the Hauge synod, Norwe
gian, was opened yesterday morning- by the
Rev. O. Hanson, of Aspelund, Minn.. . who
preached an able and eloquent sermon on the
Ascension of Christ, taking for his text the
sixteenth chapter of Mark. His words were
impressive, and were listened to by the large
congregation with marked attention. In the
afternoon a general discussion was partici
pated in by all present on matters pertaining
to the ascension. • Rev. C. C. Holter, of -Ro

Annual Commencement Dinner and
East Night's Eeveo of the
State diversity Commencement.
Twenty-two students were successfully
launched from the state university yester
day, as having absorbed all the erudition
the institution is capable of imparting, and
htted for the battle of life so frequently and
; feelingly alluded to in the commencement
: day oration. Of these twenty-two eight
! were young ladies and fourteen men, the
j proportion of the fair sex being much
1 larger than is ordinarily the case at the uni
versity. The commencement exercises
were held yesterday morning in the coli-
I scum, which spacious and handsome struc
ture was as pretty a sight, in its interior,
as the eye would care to rest upon. Nearly
tilled with gaily-clad people, dressed taste
fully with llowms. and vocal with the
sweet strains of The Danz orchestra, the
line auditorium was the fitting scene of the
graduating exercises of the chief institution
of learning in tho state. Tho candi-
I dates for graduation were seated in
a semi-circle upon the stage,
surrounded by the faculty and most of the
members of the board of regents and
! brought into relief by the backing of alumni
:in the rear. State Superintendent
j Kiehle. Senator Gilfillan, Ex-Superinten
dent Wilson and other prominent gentle
men also occupied seats on- the stage.
President Cyrus Northup officiated. Not
the least pleasant feature of the morning
was the exquisite music by Danz, which
had been prepared especially for this oc
;-.v' ?v : A MATCH OP ORATORY.
Eleven addresses were made, of which
four were by lady graduates and it is safe
to say that if the young men excelled in
oratory, the ladies were not far behind in
the solidity of their ideas and the grace
of their expressions. The orations were,
as a rule, entirely free from empty flights
of sophomoric rhetoric and were remark
able for live, practical thoughts. The sal
utatory and valedictory, however, were
hackneyed and will ever "be so long as the
present style prevails.
Rev. Joseph Anderson of Connecticut in
voked the divine grace upon the institution
and its graduates and the exercises began
with a Latin salutatory, delivered in choice
Ciceronian accents by Miss Ada Kiehle.
Miss Amy spoke upon Physical Culture,
urging the necessity of maintaining a sound
body, as the suitable habitation of a clear,
healthy brain. Mr. Bennett gave the re
sults of his reading and thoughts of the
British house of lords. He took a decidedly
pessimistic view of that noble and ancient
body of peers and thought the country
would be better off without them; other
qualities are requisite in legislative bodies
than those inherited with a coronet. Mr.
Crafts chose The Governing Purpose for his
theme and devoted his oration to showing
rather what should not be the life motive
than what should be. He urged the setting
of a work and the dauntless pursuit of it.
Miss Elwell spoke on The State and its re
lations to the individual, holding it to be
higher and greater than its integral parts.
She carefully avoided the doctrine of state's
Two of the most interesting orations of
the day, though they were not conscien
tiously delivered, were upon labor topics;
one upon Days of Labor, and the other,
Knights of Labor. Mr. Johnson had the
first named, and his paper was a supposed
address to employers, in behalf of labor.
Its ideas were good, though some were
scarcely practical. He urged the eight
hour plan forcibly, as the result of increas
ing intelligence on the part of labor, and
maintained that shorter hours would tend
to elevate the laboring people. Grinding
competition and monopoly were denounced
and capital was urged to a victory in which
labor should participate. Mr. King, who
had the Knights of Labor, evidently con
founded the order with trades unions,
though his thoughts were all well meaning.
He held the order a great power for either
good or evil, but his idea of the socialistic
element in the organization arose from con
founding two distinct organizations. Lib
erty, equality, fraternity, he held to be the
good objects of the best part of the order,
and in this all encouragement should be
held out. The Knights may become a
power in the stato and a bulwark to our
principles of freedom and equality, im

pretty language, was inclined to be sopho
moric in that it indulged in the graduate's
day dream of that Utopian future we are to
have, strong iv the promise of better men
and better things. Still it was one of the
most enjoyable of the orations.
BY TWO LADIES.
: Miss Lyall's essay showed the results of
practical thought. What Society Owes the
Poor, was her theme. She showed the
mistaken idea of rendering the helpless still
more helpless by injudicious aid: the correct
idea, the real philanthropy is to teach them
to help themselves and provide for the fu
ture. Miss Sewall had a very thoughtful
oration on American Art. She believed in
the refining, elevating influence of the
beautiful, and thought the money-making
Americans would do well to proceed
to cultivate the love of art, The
valedictory was delivered by Mr.
Webster and was as far from the old style
as it is possible to go, which is not very
far. He bade the customary farewells in
new language, but on the verge of the
beaten track. His advice to the class was
timely, and his compliments to the faculty
true and in good taste.
GRABBING THE SHEEPSKINS.
With the customary address in Latin, and
the announcement of the several degrees,
President Northrop presented the diplomas!

THE ANNUAL DINNER
was spread in Chapel hall, and several hun
dred guests seated themselves about 1:30
.clock. Five tables were arranged in the
form of the letter E. The guests in
cluded the regents and faculty, the gradu
ates and alumni, and a large number of
invited guests. The Danz orchestra was
stationed on the stage, and discoursed
music as the long and informal banquet
progressed. May furnished the collation,
which consisted of seasonable dainties of a
light order. The mahogany was handsomely
decorated with flowers, and the service was
perfect. It was late when President
Northrop arose, and in a short and witty
address proposed to inaugurate an im
promptu and informal series of talks
Rev. Anderson. Prof. Wilson, Supt'

formal ceremonies of commencement week.
The residence of President Northrop •is

upon a bluff overlooking tho river. During
tlio evening nt least four hundred guests
presented themselves and paid their re
spects to President and Mrs. Northrop,
who received them with old-time hospi
tality. The Danz orchestra furnished music
throughout the evening, which"-'. was spent
in merry conversation and in strolling
about the lawn, the latter being illuminated

are now tearing out this wall for the purpose j
of enlarging and strengthening the building, j
