The friends of Mayor Ames are deter

It is expected he will return some time

There has been no programme of ar

by some of the choice spirits of the Min

Frank Meade, of the Tribune, who re

declaring very emphatically that of all

was supporting Allison, has changed

Frank swings gracefully into line.
Frank has always posed as a slave to

Rearrangement of Department

That part of the Indian territory which is
embraced in the Choctaw, Cherokee and
Chickasaw nations, is hereby detached from

On the recommendation of Surgeon General
Florence Donohue, post surgeons are di
rected to transmit, at once, to the medical di
rectors of their respective departments a
brief statement of the number of destitute
ex-soldiers treated by them during the quar
ter ending March 31, 1888, together with the
sources from which money was procured to
ray for medicines and surgical appliances.
These statements should embrace also the
number of patients treated who were mem
bers of the families of ex-soldiers, names
beiug in all cases omitted. Medical directors
will consolidate these statements and in
formally report the same to the surgeon
general^ adding tlie results of their
own services of like character. The
surgeon-general, to whom the subject
was remitted by the action of the hist
national encampment, is of the opinion
that it is not advisable to " resume the system
of formal and detailed reports once tried but
latterly abandoned. In his judgment the du
ties of the medical department should con
sist chiefly in searching out such comrades
as are unable to pay for needed medical and
surgical tieatment and causing the same to
be promptly and fully supplied. He is espe
cially desirous that the work thus done
should be promptly reported- to the end that
a proper showing may be made in his annual
report. The commander-in-chief heartily
concurs in these suggestions and directs that
they be duly observed, similar reports will I
be made at "the close of the second quarter.
Attention is called to the rule which re
quires that all proposed changes in the
rules and regulations should be communi
cated to headquarters in time to admit of
their being submitted to the members of the
national encampment at least thirty days
before the meeting of that body. The date
of meeting has been fixed for Sept. 12, 1SSS.

The Jury Cannot Agree, Though
Favoring Mrs. Lane.
The jury failed to agree in the case of
Mrs. Nona M. Lane, of Anoka, against
the gambling syndicate to recovery $660
her husband had lost against the bank.
After an all-day session the court
discharged the jury, which stood
nine for Mrs. Lane and three for
the syndicate. The day was oc
cupied with testimony for the
defense. Col. Tanner was not impli
cated by any witness for the plaintiff,
and was not called by the defense, but
Col. Flannigan ahd Frank Shaw both
swore they had no connection with the
gambling room at 308 Nicollet Nov. 28. ',
Carl Blake testified that at that time he
was proprietor of the place, and rented
it from the bookkeeper at the Columbia.
Attorney Worrall. for the syndicate,
made a Sunday school speech, in which
he deplored the sad results of gambling
and sympathized with the losers, but
could not see how the syndicate had
anything to do with it. M". P. Iloyne,
in summing up for the plaintiff. was
rather humorous. He paid the syndi
cate a compliment as men, but roasted
them emphatically as gamblers. As
men they were square and truthful, but
as witnesses against Mrs. Lane they
were not to be relied upon.
IT LOOKS SQUALLY.
Singular Complications in the
Qui King Case.
The case of Quinlan and King, con
victed of compounding a crime, came
up before Judge Hicks yesterday on a
motion for a new trial. Attorney
Worrall appeared for the defendants
and made their plea. County Attorney
Davis, in replying, said the defense, at
the close of the testimony for the state,
had not moved to dismiss on account of
no evidence to corroberate the state's
witness, who was a confessed accomplice.
This is a little singular, in view of the
fact that the records of the case show
the defense did make such a motion.
There were three points made and re
corded. The first was a motion to
dismiss because "there was no evi
dence for the court or a jury
to convict these defendants, or either of
them." Second, "There is no evidence
before the court to show that Ueis
wenger or Snyder, or Vanguard had
committed a crime." Third, "There is
no evidence that the defendant knew a
a crime had been committed.
The indictment against Beiswanger,
charged him with having sold to King
one glass of w :isky, whereas it was de
veloped King nought beer and cigars.
There is something very singular about
this case, and apart from the fact that
it will be taken to the supreme court,
there may be some interesting develop
ments on the outside.
THE GOOD TEMPLARS.
Reports for the Year Submitted
and General Business Trans
The thirty-first annual session of the
Good Templars Lodge of Minnesota
was held yesterday at Plummer Post
hall, with nearly 200 delegates present.
The session opened with an address by
Grand Chief Templar Quick, of St.
Paul. He said, after detailing the work
that had been done during the year:
"That there lias not been as much work
done during the past year as we desired
and had intended to do is true. Sev
eral circumstances have contributed to
this end. Believing that it was better
not to commence our work until the
busy time in the fall was over, we ar
ranged to commence in November. We
had "but fairly got the work laid out and
started when storms, bad roads and the
immense snow blockades settled down
over the state and seemed to shut out
all idea of attempting to do business of
any kind. The entire business of the
whole state and Northwest seemed to
be at a standstill. It was next to impos
sible to do any traveling by rail, stage
or otherwise." Mrs. K. L. ,- Pennimau,
the grand secretary, reported that there
were 101 lodges in good standing in the
order, with a total membership of 3,835.
The report of the treasurer showed the
receipts for the year to have been
$4,660.52, and the expenditures $4,0'J3,
leaving a balance on hand of $567.52.

A GREAT SUCCESS.
Large Attendance at the Fair at
There was a larger attendance at the
Catholic fair at Harmonia hall yester
day than any day since the fair opened.
Among the donations received yester
day was an ivory-bound prayer book of
very fine workmanship, which was sent
to Father Kenny from Dublin; an ele
gant table scarf, exquisitely embroid
ered, sent to Mrs. E. L. Haunigan by
Mother Seraphin. of St. Paul; a silver
teapot from Reed & Dailey and
a framed lithograph of the Savior
from Frank llannin. The board of
aldermen and other city officials took
dinner at the fair yesterday by invita
tion, and the Irish-American club are
invited to dinner to-day. Some very
fine music was rendered last evening by
the choir of the Holy Rosary church,
and was greatly enjoyed by the large
audience which was present. The
voting for - the silk flag which is
being contested for by the Irish-
American club and the Ancient
Order of Hibernians is very brisk,
as is also the voting for the fine bust of
TltE SAINT PAUL' DAILY 'GLOBE: THURSDAY MOEl^a ; JTJNE 14, m&
Pope Leo XIII., which was purchased
by Father Daenau lt in Montreal. The
managers of the fair provide a dinner
every day from 13 to 2, and invite the
public to call.
FLOUR IS DULL,
But Stocks Are Low, and an Im
provement Is Expected.
; In reviewing the flour situation the
Northwestern Miller will say:> The el
fect of the present dull flour market was
made very manifest in the output of
last week. The output was the lightest
since last winter, when low water re
tarded operations. The total produc
tion for tne week was 123.400 barrels
averaging 20,507 barrels against
134,200 barrels the previous week,
and 117,850 for the correspond
ing time in 1887. With no improvement
in the markets, the disposition to shut
down grows l more pronounced every
day. At the present time there are only
thirteen milts in operation, against sev
enteen a week ago, and they are pro
ducing about 20,000 barrels per day.
There is much shutting down and start
ing up, as may be regulated by the re
ceipt of orders, but the former is occur
ring more than the latter, as is indi
cated by the diminution of the produc
tion. Next to the largest mill in the
city, idle for two weeks past, was placed
in operation Monday, as was also an
other of 1,000 barrels capacity, but
there . were more than enough
smaller mills closed down to overbal
ance this. Over one-third of the flour
now being got out is produced by.one
firm, and that one is storing heavily.
Millers pronounce the flour market to
be about the most lifeless of anytime
since they have been in the business.
There is virtually no export demand,
and what few orders come in are scat
tered well over this country. As stocks
in the hands of jobbers are generally
believed to be light, however, it is hoped
that a change for the better will take
place before long. The direct exports
of flour were very light last week.
There were only 23,400 bbls., against
35,000 bbls. the preceding week.
THEO HAYS' BENEFIT.
The Treasurer of the Peoples'
Gets a Benefit,
The benefit tendered Theodore Hays,
treasurer of the People's theater, last
evening, drew out a large and fashion
able audience, which thoroughly en
joyed the select and entertaining pro
gramme, which included the char
acter reading of "The Vagabonds,"
Miss Jennie O'Neil Potter, was well ren
dered, and then followed vocal selec
tions by the Minneapolis amateur opera
quartette, Messrs. Heath, Harkins,
Laye and Elliot. J. B. Brown next de
livered Emmet's address to the jury
with effectiveness, his appearance
and delivery beinfe well adapted
to the nature of the piece.
A fencing contest, in which Henry
Rippe, John Rabahn, Otto Huebner,
Chris Boehme, Sam Flaum, Morris
Flaum, of the West Minneapolis Turn
veiren, participated. The recitation,
"Asleep by the Switch," by Edwin
Terry, was exceedingly well given.
The balcony scene from "Romeo and
Juliet," by Herschel Mayall. The sec
ond act of "The Chimes of Normandy"
concluded the pleasing entertainment.
Mr. Hays was called out before the cur
tain and presented with an elegant
gold-headed umbrella by James Harrison
on behalf of the ushers, who wished
to pay him a personal tribute. Mr.
Hays responded modestly to the ap
plause that greeted him and returned
thanks to those present for their attend
ance and the patrons of the People's
The audience embraced many well
known society people, and those occu
pying boxes were J. W. Lawrence and
family, Ole Rumheart, Miss Mayall, E.
M. Wilson. Terrence Connolly and
family, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Sterling.
The gentlemen of the Deshon Star
Opeia company playing at the People's
were entertained by the Commercial
club last evening.
The ladies' parlor of the West hotel
was well filled yesterday afternoon with
a large number of ladies interested in
the department of women's work at the
exposition. Mrs. E. R. Hoi brook, the
superintendent of the department re
cited at some length what was intended
to be done, and suggested that all ladies
having specimens of handiwork
of an odd nature, or any
specimens of art work, place
them on exhibition. Mrs. M. B. Lewis
also made a short address, in which she
called on all ladies to turn in and make
the department a success.
Murder and Not Suicide.
The officers who have been at work
investigating the shooting of Charles
F. Schoenert, a cigar maker, who was
supposed to have suicided some time
ago, claim to have found evidence
which would indicate that the man was
murdered, but they are exceedingly ret
icent in regard to the matter. "We
have positive evidence," said Frank
McDonald, who took charge of the dead
man's affairs, "that Mr. Schoenert could
not have suicided, but we are not pre
pared to say anything more about the
matter. That all the insurance com
panies are convinced that it could not
have been suicide, is shown by the fact
that all the claims will be paid."
The Irish-American Club.
The Irish- American club held a meet
ing last evening, at which it was found
that the receipts from its recent benefit
of the People's theater amount to $400.

VERY CLOSE TO THE WALL,
The Firm of Shotwell, Clerihew & Loth
CREDITORS' MEETING CALLED
Slow Collections at Home and Accounts
Dae in the East Cause the
The large wholesale dry goods and ,
cloth firm of Shotwell, Clerihew & Loth
man has suspended payment.
The announcement made yesterday
afternoon created considerable surprise
and moire cominenfabout the city. It had
been the general opinion that the firm ;
was one of the solid jobbing institutions
of Minneapolis, and the mercantile re
ports had always placed its credit and
rank very high. At this time no specific
statement of the firm's condition can be
made, though it is said arrangements
may be made by which the trouble can
be tided over and the collapse averted.
Mr. Shotwell, the senior member of the
firm, is now in New York arranging its
financial affairs, and the first intimation
of the trouble was a telegram from him
yesterday. Mr. Clerihew and Mr. Loth
man both say they had no idea
the situation was so desperate
until the receipt of this dis
patch. Both claim that they
are unable as well as unwilling to make
any public statement until the arrival
of Mr. Shotwell, but a meeting of the
creditors has been called to consider
the situation and take action. The
senior member is expected home to-day
with his stock of information, and the
creditors' meeting will be held later.
The cause of the trouble is believed to
be primarily the inability to collect out
standing accounts. The firm's business
very largely consists of the manufacture
of overalls, rough shirts and junipers,
the raw material of which comes from
the East. The cost of work is cash, as
well as Eastern bills, but the accounts of
customers have generally been .carried,
so that it has been with the firm a
constant outlay, without the corre
sponding cash receipts. If the assets
were available they would probably
more than meet the liabilities. The
firm has also carried a very heavy stock,
which could only slowly be converted
into cash. The books show heavy ac
counts due the firm from Northwestern
customers, which must necessarily be
carried over until fall, or perhaps next
One of the points of interest in con
nection with the suspension is the fact
that the firm had been boycotted on ac
count of the recent strike of sewing
girls, the particulars of which are still
fresh in the public mind. Mr. Clerihew
now claims that the boycott was in no
way responsible for the present em
bairassment, and that the sales for May,
18S8, were in excess of the sales for the
same period last year. The firm had
its own way in the matter of
the strike, refusing to concede to the
girls the restoration of lost fall's prices,
or to submit the matter to * arbitration.
The boycott has now been in force for
three weeks, and, the labor organiza
tions claim, has cut off many orders; •
but, on the other hand, the firm claims
its business has not suffered in the
least, and that most of the striking
girls have been taken back at the firm's
The firm of Shotwell, Clerihew &
Lothman has been in Minneapolis for
about four years and enjoyed a fine
business reputation. A. M. Clerihew
has for two years been president of the
Jobbers' union and has also been chief
of the Caledonian club. The feeling in
business circles, last night, was the
hope that arrangements might be made
with Eastern creditors by which a sus
pension might be averted.
The Omaha Crossing on First
.Street North Again. '£•■■s. •
At the meeting of the council commit
tee on roads and bridges, the proposi
tion to allow the Omaha to cross First
street north, between Plymouth and
Fourth avenues, was again taken up,
and action was again postponed, after a
lengthy discussion, as the matter will
go before the council without recom
mendation. Ex-Aid. Pratt favored the
granting of the ordinance. Mr. Young,
of the firm of Carver, Young & Clark,
also favored the scheme, and he said the
North Minneapolis Improvement asso
ciation favored it, and it comprised the
representative people of that section of
the city. Mr. Robinson, of Bardwell,
Kobinson & Co., said unless the ordi
nance was granted the manufacturers
of North Minneapolis could not compete ? ,
with similar industries in other cities,
it being impossible for them to get their
goods shipped when desired and hence
a great loss to capital invested would re
sult. The matter of opening an alley
in block 5, East Side addition to Minne
apolis, was laid over for further consid- ;
eration. The report of the court com
missioner on the opening of Second av
enue north, from Cedar Lake road to
Perm avenue, was approved. The ordi
nance granting the Omaha road permis
sion to lay tracks across First street
north, between Plymouth and Fourth
avenues, was considered.
THE T. P. A.
Arrangements for a Royal Recep
tion and Entertainment.
The executive committee of arrange
ments consisting of W. H. Ritchie,
chairman; J. P. Browner-Aucher, sec
retary; William M.Reagan, treasurer;
and Sam T. Johnson is making ample
preparations to offer the delegates to
the national convention of the Travel
ers' Protective association and their
friends a royal time. The special trains
bringing the delegates and their friends
will arrive Monday evening and the
Danz band will be on hand to act as an
escort to the hotels. The indications
are that the delegates will number 400,
and there will be about 2,000 of ladies
and gentlemen accompanying them, as
indicated by the orders for rooms. Five
hundred will come from Oainsville
alone. Tuesday morning the reception
exercises occur at the People's theater,
to which the citizens will be generally ;
invited, and at the conclusion of the
business exercises a trip to Minnehaha
Falls and a ride about the city, a moon
light excursion to Minnetonka; also a
banquet at the West hotel to be followed
by a ball.
The Hairlines' Thanks.
The Lurline Boat club held a special
meeting last evening at the boat house,
Lake Calhoun, and unanimously
adopted the following resolution:
Resolved, That the sincere and hearty
thanks of this club are hereby tendered
to Col. John T. West for his great
generosity in throwing open his ele
gant hotel free of cost for the benefit
ball for this club on the night of Oct.
26, 1887, whereby the munificent sum of
$2,000 was realized as a nucleus towards
the building fund of the new boat house.
Resolved, That, as in Col. West the
club has always found an enthusiastic
member and liberal supporter, we take
this means of publicly acknowledging
the deep and lasting sense of gratitude
which we feel toward him.
Resolved, That it shall be our earnest
endeavor in the future, still more than
in the past, to merit the confidence and
esteem of Col. West for the friendship
he has so generously manifested toward
Revolvers and Knives.
Quite a commotion was created at the
Milwaukee depot, Minneapolis, at
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Two
colored cooks and a Pullman
porter got into a row. Several revolver
shots were exchanged and one of the
cooks was stabbed in the wrist with an
ice-pick. All three were locked up.

the sun when you've to get

or a friend's eyes for the
blind are an unnecessary
appendage. We make bar
