Sheriff Ege— board of trade as a
body is all right. The trouble is that
there are a few men on it who are prac

Freeman P. Lane— The board of trade
is an ancient piece of bric-a-brac which
should be done away with. The mem

and seem lo have no advanced ideas.
John W. Aretander— l do not like, to
say just what 1 think about the board
of trade, but 1 am free to admit that the
members of it act as though they knew
no more than school children in every
thing they do. Some of the members
may have brains, but many of them act
as if they had none. Their recent
actions demonstrate this.
John M. Miller— The board of trade is
getting at about the right thing in the
matter of certain legislation. There
are, perhaps, seme old fogies on the
board, but they are needed, as any body
ot men always needs some men with
ideas way behind the times.
The only startling bit of retrenchment

Is an Apt Term for the Min

Sterling Thought to Still

District Court Judges Do Not
Want the Grand Jury
Another Complaint Against
the New City Physician-
Company I's Election.
The theatrical missing link puzzle Is
still an interesting conundrum. Messrs.
Kohl <& Middieton, the Chicago dime
museum proprietors, are still in the city,
and are making a bluff that is not at
variance with the present temperature,
which registers on the shady side of zero.
They say they may buy the People's
theater, as their option secured from
Lambert Hays gives them the right to
purchase as well as lease. They will
probably do neither until it is decided
whether the lease to Sterling & Hays
has been forfeited by the alleged non
payment of rent. Manager Sterling,
from all accounts, appears to be in a
fair position to show that- the theater
was paying, and that he hao every rea
son to presume that the rent had been
paid according to contract. Theodore
Hays acted iii tiie double capacity as
Sterling's partner in leasing and run
ning the theater and as iris father's
agent. The endeavor will be made to
show that as treasurer he should have
paid the rent and had the funds
to do it with, but deceived
Sterling, and did not pay it in order to
forfeit the lease in accordance with his
father's wishes, which amounts to a
conspiracy. Charles W. Rohne, the ex
pert accountant who has been going
over the books, has made a statement
that the assets of the firm of Sterling
& Hays, in the theater, valued at what
they mi, be expected to bring at a
forced sale.exceed the liabilities by 52.500
so the firm is perfectly solvent. Fur
ther, that he finds the receipts Of the
theater for thirteen weeks past have av
eraged $1,000 per week, and the ex
penses, it is understood, have only av
eraged $1,200, all of which goes to sub
stantiate Sterling's claim that his fif
teen-war-lease still holds, and cannot
be forfeited by the fraudulent acts of
A new and surprising feature of the
situation is that Sterling and Frederick
Bock, of the Pence opera house, have
made up. The two were formerly part
ners, but fell out, dissolved, and had
several law suits. They have been bit
ter enemies ever since, but * a truce
has been patched up between them.
Last evening Bock made an offer
to Theo Hays of the rent claimed to be
due. $1,750, but was told that it should
be tendered to Lambert Hays. This
will be done this morning. It would
seem from this that there is a prospect
that Sterling and Bock may join
fortunes again at the Peoples if Sterling
holds his lease. Sterling is certainly
not without friends in his situation, and
I has had offcers of help from several

A little side issue yesterday was the
! serving of an attachment for $200 to
secure a claim of M. Breslauer for bill
posting. A bond was furnished and
the claim will be paid to-day. It is un
j derstood. H. R. Jacobs who has a
I dozen or so theatrical ventures in the
j East flew into tne city yesterday, and it
j has been conjectured that his visit is
for the purpose of getting hold of
the Hennepin Avenue theater. As
he is backing the Corinne Burlesque
Co., however, his visit may simply be
in connection with that concern. The
Minnesota Loan & Trust company is
buying up the claims of lien holders
against the theater at fifty cents on the

District Court Judges Disapprove
of Hay's Bill.
Representative Eugene Hay has in
troduced a bill in the legislature to cut
the grand jury from twenty members to
seven, and the following interviews
with district court judges and the
county attorneys, who are best qualified
from experience to judge of the results
of tlie proposed innovation, are of in
terest. It will be noticed they are al
most unanimously against a change:
Ex-County Attorney Davis— long
as the grand jury system is retained I
do not think it would be a good plan to
reduce the numbers of jurors to seven.
Twenty -three is none too many.
Judge Lochren— The plan to reduce
to seven is not a good one. The jury is •
none to large now, nor is too very ex
pensive. This continual tinkering is
bad in every sense, and as the present
system has' been found successful for
several centuries, I see no reason why
it should be changed. Better justice
can be done with twenty-three members
than with seven, and it seems to me
that it is the smallest kind of business
to go to work and tinker with the grand
County Attorney Jamison— The plan
is a good one and should receive the
support ot every one. There is no need
for so many jurors, and they are simply
a needless expense.
Judge Hicks— The system which has
been followed successfully for centuries
it is unsafe to change for the gravest
reasons. For tnat reason I am opposed
to any change.
Judge Rea— l am opposed to any and
all tinkering with our jury laws.
A NEEDED REFORM,
Which Does Not Involve a Board
of Trade Fight.
There is one department of the city
government that needs a good shaking
up. and that is the one which is sup
posed to look after the needs of
poor people requiring the care of
a physician. The Globe yester
day published the details of a
pitiful case in North Minneapolis.
A German family named Newman has
been afflicted with typhoid fever, which
at first attacked the father and two
children. They all recovered, and then
the mother, who had nursed them, was
taken down. For a week past an effort
lias been made to secure the services of
the city -physician, without any re-,
sponse,' and the poor woman
has been without medical treatment,
yesterday another case came to notice
that showed direliction on the part of
some one. At 7 o'clock in the morning
a man from Wisconsin named O'Con
nor, went into Cain's saloon at 244 First
avenue south, and fell to the floor un
conscious. He appeared to be dying,
although it afterwards transpired :he
was suffering from an epileptic fit.
The police were notified, but . the
surgeon, Dr. Kelly, would not respond
because the case did not belong in his
department. The man was allowed to
lie on the floor five hours until the as
sistant city physician, Dr. Hall, got
around and ordered him sent to the city
hospital. The case appeared to be a
■ serious one, and for all the attention he
got the man might have died.

, CHANGING TH RECORDS.
A Mistake That Was Probably
Made on Purpose.
A somewhat startling discovery was
made by Deputy Clerk George Tirrell in
looking over some of the records In the
clerk's office yesterday. A real estate
man had sent down : for a search for
judgments asainst a certain man, and
looking for these judgment the clerk
came across something which caused
him to becin to ponder a little. He found
several judgments against the - person
named, running from Sept. 24 to Sept.
80, and even, later; but the peculiar
thing about it was that immediately
after Sept. 24 and Sept. 36 was Sept. 28.
On looking at the pace closely he found
that the figure "5" had been changed to
an "8," thus extending the time for
creditors to attach for three days. The
clerk began to investigate the matter
and found that the transcript in the
judgment was filed and docketed Sept.
25, and that the register entry was.
made on the same day. On looking at
the other books he found that the "5"
had been changed to an "8" in the reg
ister of actions, on the transcript itself,
and on the docket. It was evident that
some one interested has changed the
figures for the purpose of dodging some
real estate deal, or else swindling some
one on a trade. No one in the clerk's
office knew anything in regard to when
the change was made. The matter will
A W. C..T. V. HOTEL.
A Scheme to Further the Work of
Owing to the great increase In their
custom the VV. C. T. U. are meditating
on a change of location to more commo
dious quarters. They are now nego
tiating for the purchase of the Semple
block on Fourth street between Henne
pin and Nicollet. The plan is to very
much enlarge the scale of their busi
ness if they gain so large a building,
and furnish rooms for those of their
customers who so desire. In addition
to the coffee room on the first floor, they
propose opening a first-class employ
ment office where ladies ami others can
be furnished with reliable help. In
this way they will enlarge the scope of
their work. "Their business at present
is in a most flourishing condition. Dur
ing January 10,455 meals were fur
nished, and because of their crowded
condition of the business was very much
crippled. In the new building the ladies
hope to have a large hall where their
meetings can be held. If these schemes
are materialized meals will probably be
served on Sunday as well as weekdays.
Though it is not a certainty that the
ladies will occupy this building, they
will move to better quarters in the
spring, and propose doing a proportion
ately larger amount of work for suffer
ing humanity. In case they obtain the
Semple block it will be remodeled to
meet their wants. An ample kitchen
and dining room will be provided for on
the. first floor. The upper floors will be
adapted largely for apartment rooms,
and a large hall and intelligence office
will also be provided for in the building.

with them until late in the afternoon,
but after the meeting adjourned Maj.

A Big Mining Suit.
Capt. S. P. Snider and J. W. Pence,
of Minneapolis, some years ago leased a.
tract of iron land in the Gogebic region
of the Ryan Iron Mining Company of
Milwaukee. The lease was for five
years, Pence & Snider to mine 25,000
tons of ore a year and to pay for it a
royalty of 30 cents per ton. The ore
was exhausted at the end of two years,
and Messrs. Pence & Snider claim that
the exhaustion of the ore renders the
contract void for the remaining three
years, and the Milwaukee company
hold an opposite opinion. The amount
under controversy is $22,500, and the
courts will likely be called on to settle
the matter. -mt-. V'

The Wheat Available— Twenty-Three
Million Bushels, Against Forty-Seven 7
Million a Tear Ago. It
Col. G. S. Rogers has made a careful
review of the Northwestern wheat situ
ation, and in the Market Record of last
evening has something of interest to say
to the millers, and farmers as well: ;!;
The wheat now in the Northwest— Minne:"
sota and Dakota— outside of farmers' hands,
amounts to a little more than . 17,000,000
bushels. A year ago the amount was nearly
35,000.000 bushels, or more than twice as
much as now. The cuaniity left back in the
hands ot farmers as surplus, above bread and
seed, is variously estimated at 4,o0t»,000 to
10,000.000 bushels, usually called about
0,000,000 bushels. That is probably about
half as much as was left in farmers' hands a
year ago. Allowing the common estimate to
be correct for the amounts in farmers' hands,
then the total quantity available to go out
side is approximately 23,000.000 bushels,
against 47,i00,000 bushels Feb. 1 a year
ago. ' " •
From Feb. 1 to Sept.-1 last year 3.96H.904
bushels went to Duluth and 18.087,931
bushels came to Minneapolis, and there were
left in the country elevators on Sent. 1,627,
--000 bushels. That made the total shipped
Irom the country houses to Minneapolis and
Duluth, from Feb. 1 to Sept. 1, including the
amount left over in the country elevators
Sept. 1, 23,25*3,835 bushels. There were 19.

a year ago. Allowing there were 12,000,000
bushels surplus in farmers' hands a year ago,
or twice as much as now, then there wej:e to

bushels went to Minneapolis, Duluth and
carried over in country elevators, leaving the
amount of 8,041,105 bushels to be otherwise
disposed of. That went out as wheat through
other channels than Duluth and Minneapolis,
aud as hour ground at other points than Min
neapolis, in the state and territory.
There were 7,241,000 bushels in country
elevators Feb. 1. which, with the estimated

from the interior this crop year, against 31,
--325,000 bushels a year ago. or 42>/2 per cent.
That amount yet in the interior is more than
5,000,000 bushels less than came to Minne
apolis, after this time, from - the previous
crop. The amount snipped from here as
wheat is averaging as large as last year,
due to the quality of so great a per cent of it
being too poor for the use of Minneapolis
mills. There was 3,50.»,000 bushels of
wheat in store here Sept. 1-last year, m pub
lic elevators, and probably about 500,000
bushels in private storage. The amount here
now is very nearly the same as a year ago, so
If every bushel surplus wheat now in
the interior in the Northwest come to Mtuno- ...
apolis and relative shipments continue the
same, there will be a little more than 1,000,
--000 bushels less to grind here, with stocks
already here now and last year at time, there
were ground here between Feb. 1 aud Sept.
1 last year, without leaving any surplus in
farmers' hands, nor a bushel in either public
or private elevators in Minneapolis or any in
country elevators. That is figuring on the
basis that the estimate of surplus in farmers'
hands is correct, and that every bushel of
surplus now 111 the interior come to Minne
apolis. But it will not all come to Minneapo
lis. Some will no to Duluth, some to mer
chant mills in the interior, and some will go
out as wheat through channels south of us.
That our city mills must lie idle considera
ble of the time between now and another
harvest is a certainty. They wouid have to'
do it even if there were a profit in grinding,.
as there is not the wheat to keep them run- ;
ning. In spite of all that wheat is relatively,
too high here for any legitimate purpose, for '
there is an actual loss in putting it to any
. consumptive use. Other markets may come
up to it, but from present outlook there'ia
little prospect of so desirable a result. Mill
ers must, therefore, make up their minds not
only to lose a part of their trade to their win- :
ter wheat neighbors, lhat will be hard to get
back again, but they may as well mase tip
their minds that there isa thin profit to be
secured, if any, while they are losing it. . .V--"'

water and ice figured prominently, and
were the cause of a small falling off in
the agtrregate flour production. The
eleven mills which ran a greater or. less
part of the time made a total of 79,500
averaging 13.250 barrels daily—
against 84,100 barrels the previous week
and 114,000 barrels for the correspond
ing time in 1888. One firm again made
over one-half the whole output. There
were eleven mills running this after
noon, but two of these representing a
daily product of 2,500 barrels, were
started since morning. They were pro
ducing at the rate of nearly 17,000 barrels
; per twenty-four hours, but when numer
ous stops and the late starting of some
of them are allowed for, the grind for
the week will doubtless go under these
figures. One more mill has been com
pelled to fall back on steam power, and
there are seven thus driven in whole or
part. The local stock of flour is being
added to slightly, and now amounts to
about 110,000 barrels— considerably less
than a week's run of the mills in good
times. - ■ - :;

BOTH DEAD AND ALIVE.
Nutmeg Physicians Puzzled by a
Case of Suspended Animation.
Special to the Globe.
-. Hawleyvillk, Conn., .Feb. 6.— A
case of "suspended animation" here is
attracting the attention of physicians
all over the state. The subject is Miss
Belle McArthur, aged eighteen years.
The attacks come upon her periodically
without warning, Tasting from five to
eight days, causing her. to lose control
of all physical power. and to appear like
: one who is dead. She is now in one of
these trances. A ; singular feature of
the case is her senses of feeling and
hearing are rendered painfully acute,
causing her to suffer what she describes
as the most terrible agony of knowing
all that is going .on about her without
the ability to express herself. Miss
McArthur's general health is good, and
when in normal condition she is bright,
witty and vivacious.
