General l.ood Tiuie--Note«.
Yesterday was Scandinavian day at the
Exposition, and the attendance wasremark
ibly large, not alone of Scandinavians,
but of people of other nationalities also.
&s usual, the crowds commenced pouring
in as soon as the doors were open, and the
steady stream of people entering reminded
one very forcibly of circus day. The Scandi
navian population of the city was well repre
sented, and numerous St. Paul citizens, ae
eompanied in most cases by their families,
were present, and took in the wonders of
the "greatest show on earth." The visit
ors wandered in small parties through
the building, calling each other's attention
to the many objects of interest. The art
department was a source of never ending
delight to nearly all, and it is sate to say
Uiat over one-half of the people present
spent three-fourths of the day viewing the
paintings and statuary. The new casts
which had been received had been placed
iv position, and compliments to H. Jay
Smith, the superintendent of the art gal
lery, weie numerous. The machinery de
partment was another attraction, and the
hundreds of machines of different
kinds were inspected most critic
aliy. No one seemed in a hurry to leave
any one exhibit, but many were seen who
were : nclined to be displeased because
there was so much to see. as it could not
all be visited at the same time. Many
came prepared to stay all day. and those
who had not brought their dinners with
them wooded their way to the Exposition
dining-rooms, there to tind solace in steam
ins hot coiiee and other tilings. The big
elevator was well patronized, and hundreds
of ladies and Kenil'jiuen went up to the top
of the building, where a magnificent view
of the city was obtained. The following
was the organ recital for the day: '"Nor
way's Flu?," Oluf Trysrasou; '"Wedding
Mirch," Verset; "Offertoire in C Minor."
As the familiar strains fell upon the ears of
the visitors they paused aud stood in re
spectful silence. As "Norway's Flag"
burst forth more than one person, away
from home and in a strange land, felt a sus
picious moisture come iuto his eyes, as he
was reminded of his childhood home across
Next week is the last week, and after
Saturday no visitors will be admitted to the
building. Monday morning H. Jay Smith
will commence repacking the casts aud
pictures, preparatory to shipping them
back to their owners. Some of the pictures
are already sold, and it is believed that
some $50,000 worth of works of art will
be taken from the list. A number of peo
ple have been looking at some of the
pictures with a view of purchasing, but
will not have the opportunity unless they
speak very soon,
The bronze bas relief, Evangeline, by
Howard Kretschmer, has been placed
upon balcony 8., iv the sculpture gallery,
with the carvings. The piece is very
miiqne, and art critics assert that no finer
bas relief has been produced by any artist
this year. The reflection upon the water
is simply grand. It would seem that some
of the wealthy citizens could not invest
$3,000 any better than by purchasing this
magnificent piece, which will increase iv
value as the years roll on.
Prof. Bradford, who has been giving very
Interesting recitals concerning the polar
regions, has been urged to repeat his
lectures in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
He will probably do so if he can tind the
time. After Oct. 15 he will leave for the
East to deliver them there.
The Mexican band continues to grow in
favor with the music-loviug people, and
nearly every person who has attended the
Exposition will be sorry to have the men
composing it leave for their Mexican homes.
Dunn? Saturday, St. Paul day, the St. Paul,
Mincoanolis & Manitoba road will run special
traius direct to the Exposition, leaving- St.
Paul atl:ls and 7:-0 p. m., and returning at

At the meeting of the directors yesterday
morning, the resignation of G. L. Gale
from the directorate was accepted, and A.
JL Clerihew selected to till the vacancy.
Saturday will be St. Paul's day, and a
large delegation is expected from our sister
city- With the weddings and all, no oue
should fail to attend on that day.

emphatically that the Exposition shall close

•'WE XEVER SLEEP."
New facts in llecard to the Capture
made Tuesday TNijjlu.
Since the startling disclosures which were
made public in yesterday morning's Globe.
In relation to the capture of a gang of
housebreakers and safe-blowers by Detec
tives Lawrence, Doyle and Harvey, new
facts have come to light which strengthen
materially the web which is rap
idly growing around the men, Hoff
man, the patternmaker, and Williams aud
Wilson, the men who were seen to procure
the burglars' tools from Hoffman, at his
place of business, 806 Washington avenue
north- Early yesterday morning the de
tectives made another trip to North Min
neapolis and returned with a large num
ber of revolvers and other tilings stolen
from various places, within the past two
months. Among the burglar tools cap
tured and now at police headquarters, are
two or three drills, showing skilled work
manship. One of these drills has but three
counterparts in the United States, so far
as known, and with it a person can render
a safe lock useless in about a minute and a
Now Being Ground By the Mills—
The Week's Output.
Two more mills are added to the opera
tive list this week, making a total of
eighteen, and they are being crowded as
much as convenience will admit of. An
other of 2.000 barrels capacity, which was
expected to start up Monday, failed to get
some broken macninery repaired, and can
not run before next week. The production
for the week promises to be about 140,000
barrels. The majority of the mills are now
grinding new wheat to some extent, a few
using it In equal parts with old, though
more put only 25 to 33 per cent, of it into
their fiour. The new grain has proven
rather brittle and many of the mills have
made use of sprinklers to toughen the
brau. As soon as the wheat goes through
the "sweat," it is expected that this diffi
culty will be obviated. — Northwestern

P. J. McGuire's Views Upon the La
bor Situation of the Day.
P. J. McGuire, the general secretary of ;
! the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiner j
! of America, last evening addressed an au- ,
1 dience that comfortably tilled Harmonia. i
! His address last night was not confined to
a discussion of the labor question as affect
ing carpenters solely but was applied to the
condition of the working classes generally.
I wish to open tins address by thanking the
press of this city tor their aid in giving notice
of this meeting. 1 come to talk to you on
questions that no legislature can solve, that
can be solved, indeed, only by higher intel
ligence and greater unity among the working
classes. There was no chance for the labor
question to be introduced until the slavery
question was settled. But that question is
now out of the way, and the great discussion
of the day is that which we hare come here
to examine to-night. If labor ami capital
are partners, as some say, why is labor made
a silent partner? Why is not labor permitted
to have some weight in the partnership/
LABOR AND CAPITAL
are not partners, but we wish to make them
so. Years ago we found the villages of our
country fl!led with small shops aud the pro
ducers and consumers were brought into close
coutact. All tbis has been changed, aud
miudlo men are needed to make e.Tchauges
betveen the producer and the consuiner,who
are thousands of miles apart. These middle
men become millionaires and tho working
classes are made their 6erfs. Chil
dren are forced to leave school in
order to work for them. Alter
having filled the warehouses with goods,
the toilers are told tnat they have produced
too much, and must now be laid off. Would
it not be belter to produce less, and to work
less— to shorten the hours of labor? In the
factories of to-day every trade is cut up into
branches, and skilled labor is not in demand.
In the shoes hops of Massachusetts it takes
thirty-eight different hand* to make a shoe.
Production has been increased by this »nd
other means a hundred fold, but wliilo in
this city there are palaces, tuere are hovels,
also. It is tho labor of the uiassos that
has enabled the owners of those
palaces to build them. Had these million
aires been placed by themselves on an islAud
thov would have no more than they could
obtain by iuu use of their o.vu bands, and
that would be a small amouut. It was ouce
our boast in this country that we should
never be troubled with the evils and injustice
of Europe. But what do we find?
OCR LABOKEBS AND BUSINESS MES
are alike in a state of uncertainty and know
not how soon they may be bankrupted or
thrown out of employment. Out of $7,000,
--000.000 proJucert in a year tte sum of $160,
--000.000 was divided among the working
classes. Seveu-tenttas of the people received
only one-sixth of th« whole product, while
three-tenths divided tho other five-sixths
of the $7,000,000,000. Uuder-cousumD
tlon on the part of the seven
tenths is the real difficulty — not over
production. Low wages has the effect of
making hard times. The people hare less to
buy with,and the only remedy is to give them
better wages. This country was never in
tended to be a country of low wages, with
many men out of employment, or working at
starvation wages. How can they live? Go
ask the pawnbroker. This is not merely
A POLITICAL QUESTION,
it is also a religious question. So long as men
strive to underwork and undersell each other,
this is a r3ligious question. The church is
doing wrong not to take up this question, and
show us to live better, so that we may be bet
ter men and women. We want
more clergymen on our side." Here the
speaker mentioned Dr. Deems and others,
who are now laboring for the poor. Even
politicians aro now getting on our side. The
men who tell us we do not need trades unions
and other organizations are forming and
maintaining unions for themselves. The
speaker referred to all the usual points of the
labor question in earnest and effective style,
was frequently appiauded, and closed with
an eloquent appeal to his hearers to unite
for the protection and elevation of humanity
and the safety of our country.
Mayor Ames was called for. He re
spouded iv a brief address, in which he
took occasion to indorse the stand taken by
Mr. McGuire. Col. M. W. Glenn also
made a few remarks, giving his views upon
the labor question and stating that in or
ganization lay the only means of protection
for the workingmen. Both speakers were
greeted with applause, and their remarks
were well received.

Innocent Panic* Cleared of Su»pi-
cion and I lie Guilty Arrested*
About two weeks ago Theodore Betts, a
well known resident of South Minneapolis,
was robbed by highwaymen of $62 and a
watch and chain. Two men named Smith
and Lockwood were arrested by Detective
King upon suspicion of having committed
the theft, but were afterwards discharged,
the evidence against them being in
sufficient Detectives King and Quin
lan then set to work to clear
up the case and finally arrested a moulder
named McNeil, who has been employed at
the Northwestern stove works. He was
cleverly pumped by a man whom tne de
tectives had placed in the cell with him. and
made confessions which implicated himself
and a man named Attic Giesman, and lead
ing to the discovery of the watch where it
had been "planted" in an out-house at the
fair grounds. Giesman was yesierday ar
rested.and it is likely that the guilty parties
will get their deserts, while the innocence
of the two men ai first arrested has buen

The coroner's inquest was held yesterday
afternoon, at Com.oliy's morgue, over the
remains of Pierre Boursroin, who was ac
cideutaily shot Monday, at an East Side
shooting gallery, by Alex La Blanc. Joseph
Consiuneau, Louis Pommerleau and John
Van Rickry, witnesses to the shooting,
testified that Bourgoin and La Blanc both
supposed the gun was harmless, and that
Bourgoin had repeatedly stated that
La Blanc did not intend to shoot him. The
jury returned a verdict that "the deceased
came to his death from the effect of a
gunshot wound, and that the bullet was dis
charged from a gun held by Alexander
La Blanc, who was ignorant of the con
tents, and therefore dot responsible for the
fatal result." Bourgoin's funeral took
place in the afternoon from No. 41 Main

"There is Nothing New Under
Is an old proverb that will not hold water.
If the man who wrote it was in the dry
goods business he would be a complete fail
ure, as it is impossible to sell goods now
adays unless they are NEW. The merchant
that keeps the newest and most carefully
selected stock of merchanchise in this age
is bound to have the largest share of th« 3
trade, providing he sells his goods at rea
sonable prices. Of course this is the reason
why our store is crowded every day. The
ladies find new goods displayed every time
they visit the store that makes frequent
visits enjoyable and profitable.
At present we are showing most exqui
site assortments of
Choice New Novelties in
It Is truly remarkable how many NEW
STYLES those Frenchmen get out every
season, and, as America is Fiance's great
market, she always offers her choicest gems
to the people that appreciate the beautiful.
Nothing could be more recherche than
those two and three toned Striped Velvets
that we are now offering at 81.75 per yard.
They are the magnet that draws multitudes
to our Silk Department. Then there are
those Black Striped Velvets, in almost any
width of stripe the fancy may demand, and
so reasonable, only $1.65. Many of our
wealthy patrons demand something in a
superb quality of material, with the colors
and shades of a color woven and blended so
artistically that one almost believes the
colors are painted by one of the masters. A
very select collection of these high art
novelties in Velvets can always be found in
Take Plushes in all the new shades, what
could be more graceful for a fall garment,
and so inexpensive, only $1.50 and $2.25
per yard. At the above price they cannot
fail of appreciation. There was a time
last winter when manufacturers of velvets
got scared and imagined that the goods
were going to be passe, and were anxious
to sell at any price offered. We are never
backward iv coining forward when any ex
ceptional value is to be offered, and nat
urally we were among the lukcy ones in
securing for this fall's business a very full
Plain Silk Velvets, in all
Colors and Black,
The price quoted is not surprisingly low,
but the velvet is of a very superior grade to
that usually sold at that price. Also a very
full line of a very much finer grade of
Velvet, in all colors and black, at $1.25.
The same remarks are true in this instance,
our aim was not to have a velvet cheaper in
in price than our neighbors, but a>better
quality for the same price.
Have you examined our Black and Col
ored Brocaded Velvets? Nothing like them
anywhere in design or value; 51. 50 and up
We could go on enumerating the different
articles in our Silk Department ad libitum,
but space forbids. Come in and see all the
New Goods, and bring your sisters, and
your cousins, and your aunts.
