Freight Rates— BalKy Horse Sug
gestions—A Relic of the Past.
A reduction in freight rates on the
St. Paul. Minneapolis _ Manitoba rail
road is being proposed by the state rail
road commissioners, and yesterday
President Hill and General Manager
Manvel met the commissioners to dis
cuss the question. This was the fourth
hearing on the subject, and the matter
was again adjourned until Monday. A
reduction of the freightage rates on this
road was made last year, and the of
ficials maintain that they are no\*as
low as they should be and that a further
reduction would be detrimental to the
financial interests of the road.
There is in the possession of the State
Historical society a small, primitive
looking wooden cupboard, partitioned
into less than a dozen letter boxes.
"Upon it is the inscription: "St. Paul
postoffice, 1*42 -4.»." It is an interesting
and unique relic, and, compared with
the present edifice on Wabasha and
Fifth streets, which is now too small to
meet the growing requirements made
upon this department, demonstrates at
a glance the rapid and marvelous strides
made by the city.
Yesterday afternoon the horse of an
expressman •'stopped short" at the cor
ner of Minnesota and Eighth streets,
and no amount of cajoling and whip
would make the animal stir. The usual
aping crowd assembled, and .ugges
ion upon suggestion was dinned into
the driver's ears as to how to make the
Stubborn brute move. "Pinch its ear,"
•shouted one The ear of the horse was
pinched, but he merely shook his dead
and glared at his tormentor. "Twist
his tail," blurted out a horsey-look
ing individual; and the tail was
duly twisted, but beyond jeopardizing
the* limbs of the man who performed
the delicate operation, the situation re
mained unaltered. "Make him stand
jSi three legs," chimed in another
••knowing one," and a fore leg of the
animal was held up for ten minutes.
"Jut nothing came of it: the beast stood
as stiff and quiet as a door nail. There
were do more suggestions, but the
crowd were exasperated, and putting
their shoulders to the rear of the wagon
they hustled it and the horse out of
Democrats Will Hold a Mass Meet
—Talk of the Times.
The Sixth Ward Independent Labor
club met last evening aud passed a res
olution indorsing the action of their
delegates in favoring a complete county
ticket. They protested against the
action of the convention in not nomi
nating candidates for ail the county
offices, and emphatically opposed any
fusion with any other political party.
It was suggested that a complete labor
ticket should be placed in the field by
calling a new convention.
The Democrats of this city will hold
an open air meeting this evening at
7:30 o'clock at the corner of Rice street
and. Como avenue. The speakers will
be the Hon. J. W. Willis. Dan W. Law
ler. Chris Gallagher and D.C. Cooley.
Hon. Frank Hurd, the free trade orator
of Ohio, is also expected to be present.
A large platform has been erected
and one of the best bands of the
city engaged, and one of the largest
gatherings of the campaign may be an
ticipated. It is expected that the work
ingnien will turn out en masse and
bear for themselves some of the telling
truths of tariff reform. The meeting
will be under the auspices of the Eighth
ami Ninth \\ ard Democratic clubs.
The Second Ward Cleveland and
Thurman club is in a most prosperous
condition and will hold a meeting this
evening at 77' i East Seventh street. A
campaign uniform will then be decided

ful and sanguine mood. "Thepopular

be sure to nominate him for sheriff. His
friends will then turn in and work with
a will for his election."
A canvass trade on Dayton's bluff,
according to Mr. Wilgus. of the Second
Ward Democratic club, shows that Mr.
Merriam will be cut seriously by his
own party at the coming elect'on. "I
know whereof 1 speak," he remarked,
"and am personally cognizant of fifty
Republicans in my vicinity, who will re
fuse to vote for him."
"I am in the fight for county commis

to stay there until forced to the wall by
my opponents, or ride over their car

The little unpleasantness in the Re-
Eublican camp last evening will be of
ut small moment when compared with
the contest of this evening. There is a
superfluity of candidates, and they
spring up on even* hand with the birth
of each hour. The main interest in the
outcome of this evening's primaries
however, centers in the contest for the
nominations for register of deeds and

Democratic politicians rested on their
oars yesterday and formally turned the
city over to their Republican brethren
to allow them an unlimited opportunity
to partake of their love feast. But Cu
pid was most effectually routed at an
early stage of the game, and shortly
arter 7 o'clock, the hour which had
been set for the closing of the polls,
harmony as a whole was conspicuous by
its absence, and in its place might have
been heard at frequent intervals charges
and counter charges of trickery and
double dealing, while there will be at
least one contesting delegation to he
disposed of by the convention next Mon
The Republican primaries of last
evening were held for the purpose of
nominating delegates to the legislative
convention from the Twenty-sixth and
Twenty-seventh legislative districts.
The candidates, however, from the town
ships of McLean, White Bear, New
Canada, Mounds View, Rose and Re
serve will not be chosen until this even
ing, when, in addition to the regular
county delegates, this portion of the
Twenty-sixth will also elect legislativs
THOUGH SEPARATE ALLOT BOXES
for the two conventions will be used.
This district is entitled to three mem
bers of the legislature, and two of them
were caucused for last evening. The
Twenty-seventh district is entitled to
four members of the legislature, and is
composed ot the old Second, Third,
Fourth aud Sixth wards.
About the polls quiet reigned supreme,
and while there was a fairly large vote
polled, but little interest was seemingly
taken in the result. A few stragglers
gathered about the polling places. One I
or two faithful adherents stood around i
to see that all were supplied with
tickets who desired them. A small j
boy or two and an occasional policeman
enlivened the scene, and at the ex
piration of an hour a. minority of those
about the polls went directly home, j
while a majority adjourned to the j
neatest place of public and fashionable !
resort, and informally canvassed the j
These were contests, however, and
where there was more than one ticket j
in the held the immediate vicinity of
the polling place became more ani- I
mated. The ticket-hawkers were more !
urgent In their Importuning, and the
anxious candidates stood '• around the
polls and directed their henchmen in
their efforts to ■ ,
PBOTECT THEIR OWN" HTTEKESTS.
The most serious contest of the even
ing occurred in the First precinct of
the Fourth ward. There were two
tickets in the field.and the Labor friends
of .ames A. Johnson were on hand at
an early hour to see that their candidate
was treated fairly. But as soon as Aid.
Bock arrived lie took posses-ton of the
ballot box and would not allow it to be
examined. When the polls closed Can
didate Johnson and his friends were
permitted to enter the room, the box
was opened, and Chris. Blakely, one
of the defeated Johnson delegates,
avers that twenty-five tickets tor ('. N.
Warren were lying crisp and
methodically arranged in the bot
tom of the box. And Johnson
thereupon made a vigorous objection
to counting of these votes. They were
accordingly thrown out. The vice presi
dent of the eigarmakers' union, how
ever, had taken his stand immediately
without the window ami observed that
there were but 228 votes cast. As the
vote, when counted, aggregated 317, the
labor men made a vigorous kick, and
one and all declared that, inasmuch as
the Republicans claimed to be the
champions of the
PURITY OF THE 11A1.1.0t BOX,
it was, to say the least, mysterious that
there should* be a discrepancy of eighty
nine votes, even after the twenty-five
which had been objected to were cast
aside. A contesting delegation will be
sent to the convention, and the commit
tee on credentials will have a load upon
their shoulders if the labor candidates'
delegates are not granted seats in the
convention. Aid. Bock was bitterly re
proached on all sides for his partisan
conduct, and was the target for many
uncomplimentary remarks after the
primary was over.
In the First Ward.
In the First ward also there was some
bad blood engendered.' The Williams
delegates were the representatives of
the younger Republicans, while Dr. J.
11. Murphy posed as a champion of the
older and more conservative element of I
the party. Charles Fegder. the labor j
candidate, was also in the field, but i
neither lie nor Dr. Murphy were able
to overcome the tactics ami indefatiga
ble energy of the Williams henchmen. !
who, on several occasions, offered
voters their tickets, and stated that i
they were Murphy delegates named j
In the upper hill district also the in- j
dependent ticket succeeded in over- I
whelmingly defeating the C. J. Berry- I
bill delegates, and put their ticket, j
under theinarshalshipof Lane X.Stone, |
well in the lead. In the majority of the j
wards, however, there were no disputes
of any moment. The tickets were
made out on the customary printed,
slips, and the Impression was largely
prevalent that it was a cut and dried
affair, while the general aspect of the
polling places substantiated this im
pression. 7.7: ■■:':
Three tickets were in the field in
the old First ward, Hie primary
for which was held at the corner of
Eighth and Wacouta streets. 11. L.
Williams headed the successful ticket,
and was opposed by Dr. J. 11. Murphy
and Charles Feyder, the last named
being the nominee of the Labor party.

Third Ward Primaries.
At the Sixth street armory, which is
located in the old Third ward, there
was absolutely no opposition to William
F, Bickel, Jr., as the representative of
the district for legislative honors, and
the 300 votes polled were cast in his
favor, electing the following delegates
pledged to his support: John Fischer,
Robert C. Wiley, Julius Schneider, C.
L. Hoist, Albert Spangeubere, D. D.
Merrill, John P. O'Neil, James Wil
liams, Anton Rudd.
The Fighting Fifth.
At 357 West Seventh street, which is
situated in the present Fifth ward and
Twenty-seventh legislative district,
there were seven delegates chosen. : A
total of 317 votes were cast, and G. N.
Warren was declared the nominnee, the
count showing that Warren received 174
votes, and James A. Johnson 141. The
latter also received two tickets bearing
his name, but without delegates. John
son was the Labor candidate, and Mr.
Bithers, the vice president of the cigar
maker union, who stood just without
the window in the interest of Johnson,
declared that there were but 228 votes
cast, making 69 votes to be accounted
for. Aid. Walter Bock, who was
one of the judges, took possession
of the ballot . box before the
polls were opened and refused to per
mit any inspection thereof, and would
not release the box from his grasp. As
each vote was cast, a vigorous shake of
the box was given, supposedly for the
purpose of separating the tickets which
had been surreptitiously placed therein.
But when the polls were closed, twenty
five tickets were discovered lying in the
bottom of the box, which were so nicely
folded into a single wad that Mr. John
son .and his friends refused to allow
them to be counted.
The following seven Warren delegates
were, however, declared the choice of
the primary: Peter Thauwald, E. M.
Kuby. J. C. Homan, Dr. Faulkner, Jo
seph Picha, F. J. Brings, Henry Schlot
In the Third precinct of the Fifth
ward Mr. Johnson was more fortunate
and polled 75 votes against 44 for his
opponent, the delegates chosen being
Henry Harrity, Roman Moznette, Pat
rick Clarkin, William Willis.
St. Anthony's Hill.
In the upper precinct of the Fourth
ward the polling place was at 925 Rice
street. The polls opened promptly at 6
o'clock, and war was immediately de
clared between the Ingersoll and Will
rich factions, the bitter feeling increas
ing until the closing of the polls at 7
otclock, when the cry of fraud was
heard on all sides. Both candidates
were present when the result of the
election was announced. Mr. ill
rich, who received the minority
of votes, claims that the number
of votes cast is unprecedented
in the history of the precinct,
and that his opponent gained the vic
tory by illegal means; that a large num
ber of non-Republican Polanders voted
against him; that many votes were re
peated, and that lie would have been
successful had the election been hon
estly conducted. He declares his in
tention of contesting the seats of the
delegation declared elected. Mr. Inger
soll admits that fraud was practiced in
some instances, but of course is satisfied
with the result. Many tickets • were
inrown out uy me judges in eases wnere
voters had rolled two and three tickets
together and cast them as one. It is
claimed by the defeated faction that
many men came up from work with
their dinner pails and voted, passing
around to the other.side of the saloon,
where they left their pails, changed
coats, hats ami otherwise disguised
themselves, afterwards coining around
from the other side, again forming in
line anil repeating their vote. The
lngersoll ticket received 299 votes
against 147 for Mr. Wellrich, the dele
gates being Jo Rosenthal, Walter Nel
son, A. Kaldunski, Charles Flagstad
and Alex Nicoll.
There were two tickets in the field in
the third precinct of the Hill district,
and as a result of this passage at arms
the regular C. J. Berryhill ticket was
routed by a vote of 127 to 38, and the fol
lowing seven Independent electors were
chosen: Lane K. Stone, J. J. McCardv,
William M. Bushnell, E. 1). Libbey,
Charles Nichols, J. A. Eldredge, Harris
These delegates are, however, not
pledged to any candidate and are simply
anti-Berry hill. Either Gebbard Will
rich or F. G. lngersoll will be chosen,
however; it depending largely upon
which gentleman will run the strongest
in the "Frog Pond" district, as the
classic precints in the vicinity of the
Manitoba engine house is called. A
meeting of the delegates will be held
to-day, however, in Chairman Stone's
office, and a candidate agreed upon.
Over on the Bluff.
There was but one ticket In the first
precint of the Dayton's Bluff district,
the delegates elected being John Blom.
I). Akbeffa, G. L. Lome:!, August .John
son, A. Dahlquist. A. Holm, K. Kroe
ger, F. H. oranthanwt C. O. Malm
strom, P. A. Landberg, Berndt Ander
son. The head of the ticket bears the
name of J.G. Elmquist, who repre
sented the district iv the legislature In
18S«. There was no excitement at the
polls, and only enough ballots were
cast to insure the election of the ticket
in case opposition sprang up at the last
minute. y •;
The polling place of the Second pre
cinct of the old Fifth ward was at the
corner of Greenbrier avenue and Law
son street. There was but one ticket in
the field headed by J. E. Elimpiist for
representative. Eighty-four votes were
cast. The following is a list of the del
egates elected: Oscar Oswald, J. Stanch,
Mart Hansen, Joseph Burger, E. M.
Winge, Gust Moline, W. Saam.
The voting at tne Margaret street po
lice station was devoid of excitement.
"They are bring back until to-morrow
night." remarked Aid. Leithauser.
"when the primaries are held for dele
gates to nominate the county officers.
There was no opposition to Eliiiquist. so
we went to no expense to get up voters."
There was only one ticket, and but
forty-four votes were cast, the delegates
