SHE COWIIAGED HIM.
I"he Spiteful Kevenee Taken by a
Hotel Waiter Upon a Traveler.
Cowhage or Mucuna, a prariens as it is
;alied in medical dictionaries, is probably
the most powerful irritant extant. It
•omes from leguminous climbing plants and
will produce an intense itching that will
irive a man crazy. Recently, a girl em
ployed as a waiter at the St. James hotel,
for some reason or other, became possessed
5f a most intense hatred for a certain trav
»ling man who is an agent for a widely
mown patent medicine. To avenge her
-5 elf for some fancied insult, she procured a
juantity of cowhajre and plentifully be
jprinkled his bed with it. As a result, the
rictirn of the girl's malice was driven
nearly frantic. His groans attracted atten
tion/and help was summoned. He was
riven a warm bath, and soundly scrubbed,
afterwards cold cream was applied, but it
was several hours before he could find any
SHE TRIED TO ROB HIM,
But the Victim Pretended He Was
'•lough" and so Escaped.
A Minneapolis gentleman, who requests
that his name be kept secret on account of
his family, bad an adventure a few days
ago that he will not forget soon and which
will teach him to avoid strange women.
While standing in front of a saloon near
the central part of the city his brother pro
posed they go in and get a glass of beer,
Smith, as he shall be called, agreed, and
as the two were on the point of entering
two women stepped up and asked to be
treated. They led the way upstairs to a
small waiting-room over the saloon, where
a lew bottles of beer were disposed of.
Suddenly one of the women, a thick-sot
blonde, fairly good-looking but possessing a
remarkably cruel face, walked up to Smith
and sat down in his lap. He objected, of
coarse, but the woman refused to leave and
commenced to fumble around his pockets,
is though attempting to fondle him.
Smith's brother was an interested
spectator, and when he thought matters
nad cone far enough leaned over
to the second woman aud whispered to her
that Smith was "Deadwood Dick," a noted
Western gambler, and would do her up if
;he did not stop trying to do him up. This
woman immediately went to the one sitting
an Smith's lap and whispered somethi g in
tier ear. The blonde arose from her seat,
"Why didn't yon fellers tell us you was
dead tough people in de first place? You
are nice chumps, you be— you lets us go
on and play you for suckers. Well, here's
your pin," and with that she handed Smith
his diamond pin which she had abstracted
from his necktie.
Smith and his brother then told a cock
and bull story of how tough they were, and
what they would have done in case the
women had played their game any farther.
Conversation was then resumed, during
which Smith learned that' the blonde
woman was one of the most notorious
thieves and blackmailers in the country.
She acknowledged that she was
v.anted in numerous cities, but said
she had always been too cute
for the officers. She tried to
square the matter with Dick, whom she
still supposed was a tough man, by buying
the champagne and inviting him to call at
her rooms, which she said were in the
building at 251 Second avenue south.
The gentleman in the case says that if he
bad not thought of his wife he should have
called an officer and had the woman ar
rested. Mike Hoy. when given a descrip
tion of the woman, said that her story was
true and that she was one of the toughest
women in the United States.
The Caucuses To-Night—Candi
dates to Be Probably Nominated.
In the Twenty-ninth senatorial district,
embracing East Hennepin, Anoka and
Isantic counties, caucuses will be held this
evening, to elect delegates to the senatorial
convention, called to meet at Anoka, on
Monday, to select one senator and four
representatives. Considerable interest is
being taken by the Democrats for the rea
son that it is considered possible, for the
first time in years, to carry the district.
The ponderous majority of the First ward,
■which is this year promised to be heavier
than ever, will, it is thought wipe out the
Republican majorities elsewhere, reduced
as they promise to be. It has been the
custom to give the senator to Anoka
county, but this custom will hardly obtain
this year. R. H. Graham, of the First
ward, is looming up as the coming candi
date and his friends think ne can
beat D. 31. dough, who will lose the
labor vote of this county, on account of
his opposition to the short hour plan pro
posed to the council. G. A. Chase, who .
was indorsed by the Trades assembly, will
probably be nominated for representative.
Jacob Becker, of the Second Ward, and
Frank Auger, of the First, are also men
tioned as candidates.
The caucuses to-night will probably be
held as follows:
First Ward— First precinct, Germania
engine house; second, Monroe street car
barns; third, Irvin's livery barn, corner
Spring and Adams street; fourth, Jaax's
store, 001 Spring street; fifth, corner
Central avenue and Fifth street; sixth,
Reeve's store, 31 Central avenue.
Socond Ward — First, Cataract engine
house: second, No. 9 engine house; third,

To the Editor of the Globe:
The Tribune has what purports to be an
Interview with me on the political situation
in Minnesota, in which I am misrepre
sented, not with the intention of so doing.
I am persuaded, but certainly the wording
of the article is not such as to express my
meaning. 1 said that "had the election
been held the day or week after Ames'
nomination he would have been elected by
an overwhelming majority, and were it to
come off to-day he would be elected; but
the tide often turned in political contests,
and from the present indications the Re
publican managers were doing their best
to turn it, and might succeed." The article
also fails to state what I said in regard to
my attitude: "I am for Dr. Ames as gov
ernor and shall vote for him. as 1 have al
ways done since being in Minnesota, be
cause I believe— as I said in St. Paul dur
ing anj address last spring— he is
the only instance I have noted
where a political aspirant to
office has endeavored to be true to his prom
ises to labor after being elected. lam not
in politics at present, but there are con
tingencies that may force me to take a
hand. The chief of which is misrepresen
tation. I did say that a poor man dare not
change his political opinions without being
charged with venal motives. Change of
opinion is a luxury which the rich only can
enjoy without suffering in personal repu
tation. lam a Democrat, have been one
all my life and dare not change if I would,
because 1 am too poor to escape the conse

TORN UP OVER THE TARIFF.
Minneapolis Republicans Sadly
Divided Between Gilfillan and
The Republicans of Minneapolis are sadly
mixed on the tariff question, while watch
ing with bated breath the bloody war waged
on each other, over the same political ques
tion by the Tribune and Pioneer Press.
The truly good are torn between following
their party platform, which is for tariff re
form and revision, aud upholding John B.
Gilfillan, who is an ultra high protectionist,
adheriug to the Blaiue idea. Gilfillan was
only reuominated at the order of the na
tional Republican congressional committee,
which order was transmitted through CoL
C. W. Johnson and Instantly, though re
reluctantly, obeyed by L»>ren Fletcher. Gil
tillan voted with his party on the tariff ques
tion and was ordered the reward of a re
nomination, while, at the same time, the
order went out to throttle Nelson, White,
Strait and Wakeiield, no had voted for
tariff revision. Nelson was too quick and
secured the plum, but the others were obe
diently slaughtered in the conventions. The
state platform endorses the four revisionists
and gave Giliillau a black eye and now the
Republicans of Minneapolis" are displaying
a tendency to repudiate the platform and
stand by Giltillan. As a rule,, it is a diffi
cult matter to obtain an expression from a
Republican on the tariff issue, the wish to
evade it publicly being apparent. Col.
Johnson is an exceptiou. He says he has
nothing to fear and no favors to ask; he
stands with Giltillan and against the state
platform, expressing himself as follows:
. I believe in the principel of protection to
American industries wherever and whenever
that principle can be applied to stimulate the
davelopemetit of new Industries or to prevent
ruinous competitions in the industrial . jalin
between America and any or all of her for
eign competitors. It is best for the fanner,
for it (rives him a home market, which is
more remunerative than any foreign markets:
it is best for the mechanic und the laboring
man, because it protects him against the
wajro-system of Europe, where families have
meat but once a week, and where able bodied
men work for less than forty coats a day from
sunrise to sunset, and where the whole family
must go into the factory to make a bare sub
sistence. It is best for the whole country,
because protection encourages the develop
ment of our owu resources, our own mines,
our own sheep husbandry, our own coal, and
gives employment to our own railways, our
own craft on our own rivers and lakes in
transport! these products from the place of
production to the consumer. In a word pro
tection brines producer and consumer to
gether, and at tbe same time makes an Ameri
can people tlie independent, self-sustaining
people they are. The prices of railroad iron,
steel nails, wooleu goods, cotton goods, nails,
and a thousand other things demonstrate the
wisdom of the system of protection, and con
spicuously the wages of American working
men everywhere demonstrate it. There it no
such thing 1 as free trade except between Eng
land and her colonies, and Ireland illustrates
how that system effects her.
HE RISES TO EXPLAIN.
Sheriff Bracket! Sot Pleased With
the Bemurkii of IS. ITic Mullen.
Sheriff W. M. Brackett was calmly puff
ing away on a bis cigar yesterday when a
Globe reporter met him. ••What's that
stuff you printed about me, coming from
Bob MeMullen?" he inquired. "Why," he
added, "I dislike any newspaper contro
versy, but cannot let the statement made
by Mr. McMullen psss without some notice.
1 can hardly believe that he would de
liberately utter such falsehoods, but believe
it must be 'political hallucination.' a mild
firm of insanity,, which, unless checked
early, might load to something serious. As
to my obligation to him personally for my
nomination two years ago, allow me to pre
sent the facts, and we will leave the public
to decide whether McMullen or his dele
gates placed me in nomination. The third
ballot stood as follows: Stoddard
42, Brackett 41, Brierly 15, Ale-
Mullen 2. At this stage of the pro
ceedings Mr. McMullen withdrew his two
votes in favor of Brackett and Stoddard
withdrew his 42 votes in favor of Brierly.
The next ballot then stood: Brackett, G8;
Brierly. 39; Stoddard 1. As to my promise
to stand by him at the convention there is
as little truth in this as in the balance of
his statement. It is true that not only
McMullen, but many of the other candi
dates asked my support, and I have faith
to believe that all the gentlemen, except
McMullen. will acknowledge that my in
variable answer was: "'lt will be impos
sible and altogether improper for me, having
no contestant for my place to take any part
in the nomination of other officers, and I
can only assure you that if you secure the
nomination I will use my best efforts to
wards your election.' This was my answer
to all, including McMullen. I was present
at the convention and had no tickets of any
candidate iv my hands, not even
my own, until after recess, when
some of my friends advised me to have
some printed aud d stributed in case some
other nominee should be brought forward.
During recess I had the tickets printed and
distributed a few upon the reassembling of
the convention. As I said before, I never
had any of J. F. Peterson's or any^)ther
candidate's tickets in my hands for distribu
tion, did not know at the time or since for
whom my deputies voted, and did not ask or
solicit any delegate to vote for my candi
date for register of deeds, or any other of
fice. These are facts which I can substan
tiate by ample proof, if necessary. I am
almost afraid that Bob has gone 'daft' over
the political situation; some ill-advisers
have tilled his head full of false notions. It
don't seem possible that he would deliber
ately lie. and I trust that he has manhood
enough to acknowledge that he has been
misled by evil counselors, and that the
statemeuts made by him were made on un
reliable authority, and that he will remem
ber the old adage, 'Whom the gods would
destroy, they first make mad.' "

How Minneapolis Leads) the Coun
try in Real Estate and Kuilutnc-
Real estate matters the past week, with
out being dull, have not been running up
to the highest notch. Real estate men say
that that the demand for outlying, unim
proved residence lots still prevails, and that
pvrchasers are willing to pay good prices.
The 150 acres near the Wasbburn home,
now being platted • and placed on the
market, under the name of Washburn Park,
is attracting considerable attention both
among speculators aud persons desiring to
erect residences. The prices of lots ranges
from $800 to 51. 200 per lot, and a number
of gentlemen have already begun the erec
tion of houses. The transfers of real estate
the past week have been numerous, the
following table showing the number and
consideration for each day:

The same week in ISSS there were 163
transfers recorded, and the consideration
aggregated $248,827. The week has not
been an especial one in the matter of build
ing permits. Still, for this season of the
year, it stauds out as a lasting monument to
Minneapolis push and energy. There were
in all Si) permits issued, aad according to
the estimates the buildings will cost $112.
--495. The permits are majuly for resi
dences in various localities, and in nine
cases out of tea it is for a laboring man's
residence. The same week in 1885 but 58
permits were issued, and the estimated
cost was 575.370.

To-morrow will be "Second Souvenir

thus far, but has been composed largely of
people from abroad, the citizens of St. Paul
aud Minneapolis evidently desiring to post

is over. Now that the Exposition has been
closed, the management desire to bring the
panorama prominently to the attention of
the public, so to-morrow each visitor will
be presented with an elegant heliotype, giv

Officer Shafer Shows His Grit.
The flats in South Minneapolis were the
scene of a pleasant little row yesterday
afternoon in which Officer Shafer and a
gang of hoodlums figured quite conspicu
ously. While the officer was patroliug his
beat the gang began to close in on him and
for a few minutes made his life a
weary burden. Skate then remarked
that things were not running to suit
him and sailed in. In about 2)4 minutes
he had arrested live, and was starting in
for more when a crowd of half-grown boys
and girls began pelting him with rocks.
The officer secured his men, sent in a call
for the patrol wagon, and soon had his
men in the station. He stood at his post
bravely, aud acquitted himself with credit.

Bismarck at Franzensbad.
Pall Mall Gazette.
The two members of the secret police
who had come with the chancellor from
Gastein were joined by four detectives
shortly before the arrival of the prince. A
list was kept of the names of all the Poles
at Frauzensbad, and all hotel managers and
lodging-house keepers were ordered to give
notice of every new arrival. During the
night the secret police formed a chain
round the hotel where "Bismarck and his
people" were incessantly at work. Couri
ers came and went, telegrams were sent
and delivered all day long in this branch of
Prince Bismarck's office. Herr yon Rotten
burg was at work uutil after midnight on
the first day of the interview between the
chancellor and M. de Giers; on the second
day he worked till 3 a. m. In the great
saloon of the Villa Imperiale, where M. de
Giers was staying, a dinner was given
on Aug. 2ti. The chancellor ap
peared in evening dress and tall
hat, but his only decoration was the
small Order ef St. Anna, which he was
fastening to his coat when leaving the car
riage. M. de Giers, also in evening dress,
wore a corn flower in his buttonhole. The
table decorations were of blue corn flowers
and edelweiss — the latter a delicate symbol
of the good understanding between the Ger
man and Austrian ; ' emperors. Before the
dinner was concluded the military band
played a serenade outside, and at the sound
of the Austrian national hymn the whole
party went bareheaded from the table to
the balcony. After the music had stopped
Prince Bismarck asked to see the director
of the band, who shortly after was intro
duced to him by M. de Giers. The prince
at once addressed him. "You are a Bo
hemian," he said. "I thought so, for Bo
hemians are always good musicians. Since
1864 and 1865, when I used to be at Cails
bad for several weeks, and listened to M.
Labitzky, I have never heard music which
could equal that which I have heard to-day.

anything about music; it is not in my line.

the republic." The referee ordered the
men to pull themselves apart alter it was
plain that they could not pull each other
Did anything break? Sullivan's left fist
went out like a projectile from a mortar and
engaged the suburbs of Hearld's ear, whiie
his right landed squarely on his (Hearld's)
stomach with a smash that brought him to
his hunkers. All along the river people
felt a shock and prayed for the Charleston
sufferers. Hearld was lifted off his feet in
time to prepare for the second slaughter.
He got it soon. ' A cyclone interposition
put in an appearance on his midribs and his
liver performed two summersaults in mid
air, alighting with both feet on his spleen.
The blue tobacco-freighted atmosphere was
rent with curses. The curses did not issue
from those who had bet on Sullivan.
Oh, me! Oh, my!
Hearld looked blown, rather fly-blown.
He did not know that Sullivan was the
double distilled essence of paroxysmal
lightning, always on tap and in quantities
to suit. He gasped and caught a friendly
eye. It was that of the chief of police,
who stepped forward with a club in his
hand and a clove In his mouth. He jumped
into the center of the area and demanded
that the combat cease. Who can dispute a
policeman when one meets him outside a
bar-room? Certainly not those who would
bruise each other for the sport of the small
"Do you believe the fight was square?"
asked Michael Muldoon of Daniel Mul
"How could anything be square that is
fought in a ring?" responded Mulcahey
with a cunning leer.
Tuxedo Park the Fashion.
Philadelphia Record. ,
It is wonderful what fashion will do for
a place. There is Tuxedo Park, in New
Jersey, that was not even on the railway
time tables until about a year ago, which is
now one of the most • desirable suburban
towns of New York. The property up
there among the Jersey hills belonged to
the Lorillards and has been in their family
for a great many years, 1 doing' them
no particular good until lately, when
it struck Mr. Lonllard that it
would be a fine place to
make a fashionable settlement So he at
once laid out a park, secured Mr. Bruce
Price as his architect,- built a club-house
and a number of cottages or .: members of
the club, and even last winter it was a fash
ionable resort. Its best time, however, ■is
in the fall, when - people come back from
long distances, but still do not want to be-,
gin city life. The Astors have taken a cot
tage there, and the Breezes, the Cuttings
and the Barlows, and i Mrs. James Brown
Potter, and amateur theatricals will,
of course, be the next thing in order. In
deed, Mrs. Porter, is to open a theater
there early in ; October, and an ■;' amateur
company from j Boston is to . succeed her.
During Christmas week— that is, from the
day after Christinas until the day after :
Mew Year— will bo one round of fes- 1
tivities,', balls, sleighing, tobogganing, ice- |
boating on the lake, skating, etc., by night
as well by day, and fashion has sot to seal
upon Tuxedo Park.
.Why Senator Edmuudi la Lonely.
No one at the capital misses Thurmau
more than Senator Edmunds. With the
Ohio statesman these two formed that illus
trious coterie among which Roscoe Conk
link and Secretary Bayard loved to linger,
whether It was to discuss affairs of state or
partake of * the far-famed senatorial tea.
These gatherings, held always in one of the
committee rooms, were the delight of all
who there came together, but beyond those
named few others could obtain admission,
though they sought it in every way. FoY
convenience they^kept the liquor in a jug
which never grew empty, thongh the sup
ply was frequently low. Scattered around
the room, in easy position, often with dish
evelled hair and other garments flung off for
comfort, they frequently outlined party pol
icy in friendly co-operation, for in those
meetings all jealousies ' and rivalries were
laid aside. When Thurman gave way, to
be succeeded by Garfield, the first break in
the chain was made. Then Conkling
dropped out. and later Bayard and Garland
went into Cleveland's cabinet. Of that il
lustrious group only Edmunds now remains
and he is inconsolable in his mourning for
those whom he really loved and missed.
HaTerly Will Rise Again.
It will interest theatrical people tokno
that John H. Haverly is slowly getting on
his financial legs again, and that he will
probably appear in the managerial arena
before many more years have lied. Since
he planned to rule the theatrical world and
awoke one morning to find himself bank
rupt, but little has been heard from him in
general except that he finally drifted back
to Chicago. It appears now that he has all
this time been running a little mint in the
form of a gentleman's pool-room, where
stakes were laid upon games of skill or
chance under the shelter of police pro
tection. With what, money he has and
what he is able to borrow, he proposes to
develop Cheltenham Beach, a place occupy
ing the same relative position to Chicago
that Coney Island does to New York. His
plans for it contemplate the use of a vast
amount of money — half a million or more
—but he is confident it can be raised with
out much difficulty.
No Lead Left in That Gun.
Thomas J. Bowditch in Fact and Fancy.
Many years ago, before the introduction
of friction matches, an old farmer used to
light his tinder for the morning fire by the
use of an old flint-lock musket. One day
in his absence the wife loaned the musket
to a neighbor, who returned it loaded, and
mentioned the fact to the woman as
he handed it to her. But her hus
band did not return home until past
midnight, being on a rousing spree. He
crept into bod without waking his wife to
enjoy a lecture. Next morning he rose in
good season with the usual thirst and a
hammering headache;* after rubbing a
few . cobwebs out of his eyes and
taking a "wee drop" from the remains of
the overnight, he commenced preparations
for starting the fire. The splinters were
collected and the tinder placed in the pan
of the lock; click! went the hammer, and
the explosion that followed shook the
house, dispelling the fumes of liquor from
the old man's faculties and rousing his wife
with a sudden alarm. Guessing at the
trouble she exclaimed, while not fully
awake, "Th-th-that gun is loaded!" Look
ing with an empty stare at the smoking
gun and at the bullet hole in the bedstead,
just about two inches above his wife's
head, the fond husband replied: "No, I'll
be darned if it is!"
Hew the Czar Travels.
! St. James Budget. .
A Cracow dispatch describes the Czar's
last journey as having been undertaken
with even more precautions for his safety
than usual. The day before the arrival at
Warsaw a nihilist, who had been sentenced
to death some days previously, was hanged
in all haste. Soldiers stood along the entire
line where the imperial trains were to pass.
As ' the ■ trains approached the soldiers
turned about so as to be ready to fire upon
any one who might try to get near the line.
There were three trains— one for the im
perial family, one for the baggage and a
third for railway workmen, who could re
pair any damage happening to the lines.
On the journey the emperor changed from
one to the other train several times. At
the stations the .windows and blinds were
