Another Minncapolitan lias a
Fortune in Prospect.
Another probable heir to a fortune
has been found within the corporate
limits of Minneapolis. John Stoinnetz,
a paper hanger by trrde, formerly living
at 2730 First avenue south, recently re
ceived a letter from his mother, who
lives in Philadelphia, stating that an
oiil French ciaim would be paid by
the government in the next sixty
days. The story dates back to the
old French-English war, when some of
the ships belonging to Steinnetl's great
trrandfather, who was a shipowner in
Philadelphia, were destroyed by the
French fleet. As the United Slates was
a neutral power, the government col
lected a large claim againstTTie French,
known as the spoliation claim. The
only hitch in the affair is the matter of
interest. The money has been in the
government's hands so long that the in
terest would more than equal the prin
cipal. If the heirs agree to take the
money minus the interest, it is likely
the claim will be soon settled. Mr.
Steinnett's share will he about $->oO,OUU.
M a ny New Features Promised for
As spring approaches there comes the
usual talk of improvements at Lake
Minnetonka, and those who have the in
terest of the great Bummer resort at
heart, are getting ready to straighten
up the plans for future additions, look-
Ing to the fulfillment in the early spring.
Each year has found marked improve
ments over the previous one, but this
season promises to eclipse all others in
the extent and variety of additions tor
the benefit of those who resort to the
lake. One of the most important of
these is the building of the new quar
ters of the Minnetonka Yacht club upon
the island that was built last summer on
tin 1 reef opposite Bay St. Louis. This
will be the general headquarters of all
the yachtsmen of the lake, and many of
the most enjoyable entertainments for
the coming summer will be held there.
Dozens of new cottages are being
planned for, and Minnetonka beach
will have substantial additions In the
building line. The upper lake, which
has been so long left neglected, is to
have a number of cottages, and efforts
will be made to improve it in other
■ways. Around the i-ead of Gideon's
bay, between Lake Park and Excelsior,
a Targe amount of road building has
l>e«.'n finished, and a part of the way
there is a splendid boulevard. When
this is fully completed, which it will
probably be next summer, it will form
the prettiest drive about the iake.
A Remarkable Painting From
France Now in the City.
We chronicle to-day the arrival of a
famous work of art. It is now on ex
hibition at D. Goodman & Co.'s, 255
Second avenue south. When it was ex
hibited in New Yoik some months ago,
just after its arrival from Paris, the
.New York Graphic said of it:
"The temptation of man by woman
has always been a favorable subject
with the artists of the world. 'Ihe
charms of women are so all-powerful
that it has been conceded for all ages
that man can face nothing more se
ductive than the batteries of her lips
and eyes and the embrace of her
yielding arms. This thought forms the
subject of a remarkable French work of
art. now on private exhibition in this
city. It is nothing more nor less than
a superb scene iv which a priest, out of
the phantasmagoria of his visions and
dreams, sees arising before his as
tonished sight a woman with tender,
pleading face, eyes that melt to love
and lips hungering for kisses. Soft
arms beckon to him and bid him yield
to present happiness. Like nearly all
of the modern classical French paint
ings, In the treatment of the female
form it is unsurpassable. Woman never
received greater tribute than she does
to-day from the brush of French artists,
and "Le Renoncement' is a remarkable
instance in proof of it.
A BIG CONCEKX.
The Gogebic to Locate Its Offices
The (lOgebic Hessemer Ore company,
of Minneapolis, is composed of Eastern
parties, who have been investigating
the mineral resources of the North
west nndj have finally concluded to
place $5,000,000 in the venture. The
Pence anil Snidor interests in the Goge
bic range were purchased and, in con
junction with these, other mines are to
be purchased in Wisconsin. The prin
cipal operators of the new company are
John v. Farwell. of Chicago; Mark A.

will be the general agents, with branch

Some Gossip Which Will

The State League's Finances
Still a Topic of Fruitful
Charlie Pillsbury Is Not Stuck
on Making the Race for
A Scheme to Have the Police

- "Jogging along together, me boys,
: We ould gray marc and I."
A few days more, and all that is mor
tal of that long-to-be-remenibercd or
ganization, the Minnesota State league,
will come together and discuss unpaid
bills and the best means of mating up
that ?3,000 deficit. In view of the fact
that a monkey-and-parrofc time is ex
pected between President Tim Byrnes
and the balance of the league, it is said
that the committee having the matter in
charge will issue tickets for admission
to the hall. In this way they expect to
raise a little money and thus help the
creditors out. Though Tim Byrnes
has given the matter a great deal
of thought • and study during
the past month he has not
yet been able to see any way out of the
hole except by paying toll, and though
his friends in Minneapolis are credited
with having made quite an effort to
raise the necessary amount, they have
not been very successful. As is always
the case when money is wanted to pay
political debts, it is very hard to collect,
and those who were expected to "come
down," such as "Uncle" Loreu and men
of his style, have positively refused, it
is said, to shoulder any of the debts or
contribute a cent to their liquidation .-
They say the young fellows organized
the league, made a great spread and
carried everything, and they are willing
that the honors should remain where
they are. Even Congressman Snider,
who owes his seat in congress largely to
the juvenile branch of the party, has
been credited with saying that he can
not do anything for the league or its
creditors. He said the congressional
committee had nothing to do with the
league, and the inference can be drawn
without the aid of a force pump. It is
too bad for the party that preaches such
noble (?) doctrines to find itself handi
capped by such a leech as the league
proved itself to be.
*», • •
A happy thought occurred to some of
the members of the league during the
week which may yet solve the problem
of financial embarassment that it is now
trying to remove. Gov. Merrlam's
name has been connected . with the
scheme to wreck the American Build
ing and Loan association, and it is said
that some of the league members have
called on him for assistance, promising
in return that they will see that he gets
all the support necessary from Henni
pin county when the time comes. It is
a good scheme; the Governor to "give
down" and help out the league and in
return get the Henuipin county sup
port. This, it is said, is the reason why
"Uncle" Ijoren would not con
tibute anything. He is not
working for Merriam's success,
and "has no time" for the man who is.
Loren thinks, however, that public opi
nion will not vote Merriam into the gov
ernor's chair again in the fact of the
charges made against him, unless they
be cleared up in some way. That was
a barrel of nuts for Merriara, and Lang
don is as happy as a cow in clover.
Everything looks well for Langdon now,
but like the weather, public opinion
may change when least expected. If
the Minneapolis end of the state league
want to redeem themselves, they must
not bore the city for the necessary
money to pay their debts. This advice
is worth a good deal, but the Globe
will not put in any bill just now, but
will wait and see whether the auditing
committee can find any bottom to the
** « •
Charles A. Pillsbury is not tickled to
death over the prospect of being a
mayoralty candidate next fall, and will
probably not be unless a sotter chair
and a cooler pillow are guaranteed for
him for the following two years than
what Mayor Babb put up with for the
past year. The fact of the matter is, he
does not want to haye anything to do
with so small an office; besides, as he
says himself, there is no great honor in
running tor an office and getting de
feated. He thinks that next year the
"Democrats will get everything from
mayor to dog catcher in Minneapolis,
aud that his surplus cash could be put
to better use in im proving the water
power at Spirit island than paying cam
paign expenses for a party that must go
down like McGinty. Those who have
this great task in hand will not accept
any refusal from Mr. Pillsbury. They
are determined to force him into an ac
ceptance of the empty honor, and he is
just as determined that they shall not.
When C. M. Loring returns, which will
be very soon now, he will be requested
to give himself up as a sacrilice on the
political altar, but it is doubtful if even
he will condescend to make the fight.
That ancnst body, the police commis
sion, has- another year in which to live,
after which it will be uon est. The Re
publicans have already defined for
themselves, but not for the public, what
course will be pursuen in the police de
partment after the commission has "de
parted this life." If the Republicans
elect their mayoralty candidate, the
legislature will abolish the commission
entirely and put the police department
in the hands of the mayor. On the other
hand, if the Democrats elect their can
didate, which, of course, they will, the
present police commission act will be
abolished, but another will be intro
duced and passed placing the mayor
and the council committee on police in
charge of the "force." This is their
little scheme, and it is a good one. It
practically creates a new commission,
but with less powers than the present.
The committee will have nothing to do
with the police except in the matter of
appointments, while the entire man
agement of the department will
fall on the mayor's shoulders. The
council of course will be Republican,
the president of that body will be a Re
publican, and he will see, as a matter
of course, that the police committee
is largely Republican. In this way one
can see how a Democratic mayor would
be tixed. He could not make any ap
pointments or promotions; neither could
he discharge a member of the force
without the consent of the committee;
at the same time he would be held re
sponsible lor good order in the com
munity. He could not even have the
appointment of his own chief, and, of
course, tied down like that he could not
accomplish anything. A Republican
committee from the city council will
preside over the police department a
year hence, and then we may look out
for squalls. If that committee will know
as much about police matters as the Re
publican members of the present coun
cil know about "retrenchment aud re-
form," our police force a year hence
will be a bieger farce than ever.

he is not giving orders to some one, and
he thinks a place on the police commit

A. ,1. Blethen's ambition to be mayor
iof Minneapolis is not likely to be real
i ized next year. He came very*near the
goal once, and that is perhaps as near
as he will ever come again. What has
beeu said about his connection with the
American Building and Loan associa
tion has done him more harm politically
than a thousand such editorials as ap
peared in last Monday's issue of the
Tribune. Ay Jay was figuring to suc
ceed Mayor Babb, notwithstanding the
fact that he has the responsibility of
managing "the great morning daily."
But the expose, if it can be termed so,
in which Ay Jay was pictured as figur
ing so conspicuously "to down" the
American has turned away a number of
his admirers. It has injured his chances
very much, and, in all probability, will
work his political defeat, if. he shows
himself on the field during the coming
season. This galls Ay Jay worse than
if some one in the business office would
give away the Tribune's circulation.

So the Flambeau club has put on its

In this way they expect to da a great

It is estimated that there are at least
150 men, women and boys in Minneapo
lis who claim to be private detectives.
Recently there have "appeared in the
want columns of the local papers an
advertisement for "correspondents" for
certain private detective agencies in
other cities. The advertisement stated
that no experience was required, aud at
least one hundred answers were re
ceived from the Twin Cities. The ad
vertiser then sent his correspondents a
lot of dime novej literature and a circu
lar of "instructions," which informed
him that upon the receipt by the agency
of a fee of $5 or $10 a copy
of the regular publications issued
from the home office, a badge
and commission would be sent. The
would-be detective sends his money.and
receives iv return a star and a paper,
setting forth that he is regularly con
stituted an operative of the agency.
With the would-be detective the star
has about the same effect as
a boy's first pair of boots,
and. of course, he ia very proud of it.
He pins it on his vest, and can be seen
loafing around the street, instead of
following his daily avocation. Perhaps
he confides the fact to a friendly police
man that he is "in the detective busi

ten to one that the would-be detective 1
is supplied by the home office with a lot
of badly printed pictures of men who
are either in prison, in Europe, or who

A few days ago one of the legitimate
agencies was employed to investigate a
number of petty robberies which an
noyed the people in a fashionable
boarding house. One young man
was suspected. He was ogt
of work, but always paid his
bills promptly and apparently al
ways had money in his pocket. Al
though he had always borne au ex
cellent reputation, the landlady and
several of the boarders were sure that
he was guilty. The manager of the
agency took personal charge of the case
and it only took him about ten minutes
to discover that the man under sus
picion had about $500 on deposit in one
of the banks, and his deposits showed
that the money was the result of his
savings weekly, while occupying a lu
crative position. A watch was set. and
it was discovered that the landlady's
son, a young fellow who spent his time
loafing about town, was the thief.
When" the operative searched him. a
private detective's star and a commis
sion from an alleged agency in Cincin
nati were found on him. He then told
his mother several of his companions
were also detectives, and they had been
systematically robbing their parents.
The gang was rounded up by the police,
and now there are three "detectives"
less in Minneapolis.

from Stockholm. She was then but
seventeen years of age, and inexperi
encfd in the ways of this cruel world.
She met a peddler named Benjamin S.
If Rehecka's story be true, Ben must
have been a bad man. After but a brief
acquaintance, Rebecka and Benjamin
visited Judge Lochren on the 15th of
August, 188«, and were made one. Ben
jamin went with his bride to the home
of a friend, where he began to abuse
and to personally maltreat her before
the sun had set on the wedding day.
He left her the st»me day, and has never
returned since, but has left Rebecka to
face the hard, pitiless world alone.
Judge Hooker heard the story and
loosed the knot which Judge Lochreu
Judge Hooker officiated likewise at
another dissolution of marriage ties, the
plaintiff in this case being the husband.
James S. Bernstein and Anna Bern
stein were married at Pittsburg, Pa., in
1869. They lived together until 18S0,
when Anna wilfully deserted James,
and never again would return to lighten
his fireside with the brightness of her
eyes. There was one child, a boy now
eight years of age. All of these facts
were set forth in a complaint filed by
James .about three months ago. His pe
tition came up for hearing yesterday,
and Judge Hooker thought he should
have a divorce, which was accordingly
Helen J. Converse also wanted a di
vorce quite badly from Le Roy Con
verse, to whom she was married in 1876.
They han one child, a boy of seven, and
she wanted the custody of him. The
reason for these desires on the part of
Helen, as set forth in her complaint,
was that Le Roy was a habitual drunk
ard, and that he was? not accustomed to
observe the golden rule in his treatment
of her. But Helen didn't, receive a fa
vorable answer to her petition because
the service of a copy of her complaint
upon the defendant had been neglected.
Her case was stricken off.
Charles B. Cunningham Is another
husband who, according to the com
plaint of his wife, has utterly disre
garded his promise to love, honor and
cherish the partner of his joys and sor
rows. Mary Ellen is the name oi the
wife, aud in 1878 she took Charles for
better or for worse, which latter seems
to have been the result. She claims
that slit- was always a good and true
wife for him, but that in 1882 he de
serted her, and has since refused to
either support or live with her. Since
18S2 she has never had any money from
him with the exception of $30. Her
case was continued for two weeks.
The hearing of the application by
Lilian Gfouex'for a divorce from Peter

periods of that disease, the cough is
wonderfully relieved by this medicine.
"I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
with the best effect in my practice.-
This wonderful preparation once saved
my life. I had a constant cough, night
sweats, was greatly reduced in flesh,
and given . up by my physician. One
bottle and a halt of the Pectoral cured
me."— J. Eidson, M. D., Middleton,

The doctors said I was in consumption,
and that they could do nothing for me,
but advised me, as a last resort, to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After taking
this medicine two or three months I
was cured, and my health remains good

A Dozen Cabinets and a Life-

A reporter asked Jacoby what frame
and picture he was giving for $7, and he
found out that it was far larger than he
had even thought of. The great offer
made by Jacoby is a dozen cabinets, a
life-size crayon, 18x22, and a fine frame,
for 17. This is almost like giving the
picture away. The great reputation
which the Jacobv gallery has for fine
work is a sufficient guarantee that all

strictly first-class. Parties desiring old
photos or tintypes enlarged can also
have the benefit of this offer. The in
