"Please send me back to the work
house at Little Blue; they were kind to
me there," was the pathetic appeal of
the wandering child who was found
■walking about the city recently, poorly
dressed, homeless and friendless. Her
hame was Anna Robinson, die said, and
ncr only friend the matron at the Little
Blue poorhouse. "Had she no home
anywhere?" was asked of her as she
faced the police judge and cowered
under the gaze of the spectators. "No,
•-lie replied; "none but the poorhouse
at Little Bine.*' and again the request,
"Let me go back to Little Blue, it you
please, sir. They know me there."
The friendless waif was sent to East
Dubuque, and from there will probably
find her way to the little old frame poor
house at Little Blue. B_P-H
A sad story was' that told by B. G.
Crandall yesterday, when he took the
stand to testify in the case of little Kate
Lynch, charged with visiting a liouse or
ill fame. The facts of Kitty's arrest
were told in the GLOBE of yesterday.
"She has a good mother, sir, said .the
witness, "and the news of the child s
downfall will probably be the death of
her. She is like a woman bereft of
reason now. Kate had always been a
good girl until this occurred, lhe
mother had supposed her daughter em
ployed in light domestic work at the
house of a relative, and when the news
of her location in the Hill street house
was brought out it seemed to utterly
crush the poor woman." .
An attorney appearing for the girl
stated that she was employed as cham
bermaid at the house, and had not been
leading an immoral life. The case was
continued pending the hearing of the
keeper of the house, who has been sub
There is mourning at 023 Brewster
avenue. The family of Thomas Con
mil v. who disappeared from his home
last Sunday, is still missing, and fears
are expressed that he has met his death
either by accident or foul play. Con
nelly had no money with him on the
day of his disappearance, was on good
terms with his family, and no reason
can be assigned for his having left them
voluntarily. The police have no clue
ns to his whereabouts.
Thomas Cochran Jr. deserves the
heartiest commendation of citizens for
the expeditious manner in which he
has cleared up the difficulty calling for
the abandonment (for a time) of the
Grand avenue electric line West of Vic
toria street. The line is to be again in
full operation, at the latest by the end
of next week. The city would be all
the better if it possessed a few more
men' of the stamp of Mr. Cochran, who,
by the building of this electric line, has
demonstrated that he has little doubts
of the future greatness of St. Paul.
Hon. S. D. Peterson, of New Ulm,
who was in the city yesterday, is very
pronounced in his declaration of the
unity of feeling in Southern Minnesota
respecting the renomination of Col.
Bobleter as state treasurer. He says
that any attempt on the part of Gov.
Merriam or his supporters to shelve the
colonel will certainly work disastrously
to the interests of the St. Paul banker.

The Bank Case.
The case of the Second National Bank
against Howe Bros, is still dragging it
self wearily along in Judge Kerr's
court. The defendant consumed nearly
the entire day in the introduction of
evidence. The principal corroborating
•witness of the defense. Officer Heaney,
was called in the afternoon. lie told a .
fairly plausible story, but under the
raking cross-fire of Mr. O'Brien he
weakened materially and retired from
the stand greatly confused. He said he
had occasion to come down to the bank
on the morning ef Dec. 31, 1857, to meet
a note which was coming due and while
there he saw James Howe and Mr.
Cowley, vice president of the bank,
holding a consultation. Mr. Cowley was
afterwards called in rebuttal and denied
emphatically ever having any such in
terview as that related by the Howe
Bros, and corroborated by Officer
Heaney. A number of witnesses will
be called this morning on behalf of the
£laintiff to impeach the veracity of

It is expressions like the above that
are giving the friends of Gov. Merriam
a cold chill or two every
day now, and explains in
part their anxiety for an
early or "snap" convention. Those on
the inside of affairs at the state house
have known for a long time that the
most perfect harmony does not exist
between she different departments of
the state government. In this state the
governor has no power to oust a recal
citrant secretary of state or an attorney
general whom he does not like, as has
the chief executive of those* states
where these offices are appointive. The
postions of secretary of state, state
treasurer, auditor, attorney general and
clerk of the supreme court in this state
are all elective offices, and the governor
has no string or pull whatever - upon

solely through the medium of the mail
service. . If Mr. Mattson desires to com
municate with tne governor upon a
matter of business he does not walk
down the corridor and hold a.' confer
ence with his excellency— -far from it.
The bluff old colonel sits down and
writes a letter to Gov. Merriam. This
is mailed, goes to the postoffice, and is
finally returned to the executive de
But why is this thus?
Several reasons have been given for
this break between Mattson and Mer
riam, but none of them seem to quite
fill the bill. One rumor runs to the
effect that shortly after Mer
riam became governor he was
called upon by Secretary Mattson,
who desired to lay before him some
very important business. The governor
was engaged at the time and Col. Matt
son sat down in the outer room of the
executive department waiting for an
audience. While he was sitting there
waiting patiently several politicians
came in, and the people who were claim
ing the governor's attention when Col.
Hans first entered the room passed.
The secretary of state then tried to
gain an audience, but to his sur
prise and disgust he was told
to wait outside while this second
delegation were taken into the back
room by Gov. Merriam. This was
too much for Secretary Mattson and he
departed in hot haste for his end of the
capitol. And this was the last time the
secretary of state called on the governor
of Minnesota during the present ad
But the state department is not the
only one sore at his excellency, and it is
safe to say that if Auditor Braden de
cides to enter the field as a candidate
for the nomination for governor he
will receive the support of nearly
all the state house crowd. Two years
ago Gov. Merriam's friends allowed
Attorney General Clapp,' Treasurer
Bobleter and Secretary Mattson to be
renominated only because they feared
to do otherwise. This year the same
crowd are possessed of the same fears
and are willing to concede all of the
three a unanimous renomination, pro
vided they will just keep quiet. But
these different officials are not half as
much afraid of the governor as he is. of
them, and, if a revolt is started, there
may be a surprise in store for a certain
element of the Republican party -in the
coming state convention.. ; 7*7;
Quite a number of Republican-candi
dates are springing up in various parts
of the state. O. L. Cutter, of 'Anoka,",
some time ago declared himself a candi
date for the nomination for state audi
tor; Ole Lueken, of Crookston, whom
Halvor Steenerson brought out with a
tremendous flourish for state treasurer,
now says that he doesn't want that
office, but is after the nomination for
clerk of the supreme court. J. A.
Tawney, of Winona, has been talked of
for attorney general, and Senator Gid
S. Ives was thought to be slated for the
nomination for lieutenant governor.
But this seems to have been a
little previous. R. B. Langdon, Gov.
Merriam and Lieut. Gov. Rice, it seems,
have decided that if the candidate for
governor is to be taken from St. Paul,
the second place on the ticket must go
to a Minneapolis man, and they accord
ingly met in convention and decided
that Senator D. M. Clough should go on
this ticket for lieutenant governor. This
may go down, and then again it may
not. ______ -
The retirement of Albert, hereditary
prince of Kandiyohi, from state politics,
leaves the Third congressional dis
trict without a caudidate for a po
sition on the state ticket, and there
is a well-defined report that Hon. R. H.
McClelland, of McLeod county, will be
pushed forward for attorney general by
the Third district. Mr. McClelland is
an able lawyer, possesses. a wide ac
quaintance throughout the district, and,"
if he decides to enter the field, he will
probably receive the United support of
his district. He managed "Dave" Hall's
campaign two years ago and is still the
chairman of the Third district con
gressional committee. Mr. McClelland
formerly practiced law in Scott county
and was once elected county attorney
of that county on the - Republican
ticket in spite of its 1,200 Democratic
majority. Another time he came
within a few votes of an election. He
is an old soldier, a man of fine presence,
and personally very popular.
Will tho farmers of the state demand
the removal of some of the members of
the present state's prison board? .
It is very likely that the removal of
seyeial of the inspectors will be de

culturists of the state, especially if the
governor confirms the report of the new
committee of the binding twine matter, :
and his action in the case wiil have a

State Auditor Braden is now making
his annual sale of state school lands and
is meeting. with great success. Yester
day he conducted a sale of Big Stone
county lands at Ortonville, the county
scat, and sold no less than 7,800 acres of
land. The prices, he writes, are good,
and the land was purchased by active
farmers to a great extent. He attributes
this increase in laud values to the
prosperity 7 engendered among many
Minnesota farmers by last year's good
crops as well as to the rapid develop
ment of the state. Although the less
desirable lands of the state remain un
sold from year to year, the prices of
each successive season are higher than
those of the previous year.

Francis Waltenberger, of Hicksville.
0., father the St. Paul man, died and
left among other property deeds to cer
tain lands in Florida, which lands com
prised about a section and a half
in .Washington county in that
state, the deeds showing that the
purchase was made from the
St. • _ Andrews Bay Railroad Land
and Mining company in consideration
of the payment of 6500.. The deeds were
willed together with other property to
Elliot Moore, a brother of Mrs. Walten
berger.who valued them so little that he
sold them to the present owner for $50
cash. When the deeds first came into
his possession young Waltenberger en
deavored by correspondence to discover
if. any real value was attached to the
property, but was assured by the firm of
lawyers" to whom he had written that
the land was arid and worthless. As a
result he paid no further attention to
his possessions in that quarter the
globe until several months ago he was in
formed by a native of the state that the
county in whicli his property was situ
ated was a flourishing one, and the land
doubtless worth a good deal of money.
He renewed his investigations, and suc
ceeded in securing the services of a firm
of reputable lawyers in Jacksonville, to
whom he wrote on the subject. A re
ply was received asking that a copy of
the deed to the property be sent, and ,
Waltenberger's relatives, in whose pos
session the deed now is, were instructed
by him to comply with the re
quest. A letter received from the
firm, yesterday, reads as follows :
Powell & Hicks. Attorneys at Law, Jack
sonville, Fid.: Frank Waltenberger, Esq., St.
Paul. Dear Sir: vVe have examined records
and find that your title to section 36, towu
shiD 3, range. 14. west, Washington '.county,
this state, is unquestionably clear.* The laud
is partly in the village of Fairview, a flourish
ing town, and the best buildings in said vill
age stand upon it. The property is worth in
the aggregate $-.5,000. There should be no
particular difficulty in establishing your
claim, and we take this opportunity of otter- ■
ing our services in. that regard. An im
mediate reply will oblige yours, etc.,
. Powell & Hicks.
Mr. Waltenberger wrote at once au
thorizing the firm to act as his attor
neys, and will, as soon as possible, go to
Florida to look after his interests per
sonally. He is a young man of good
education and gentlemanly appearance.
He has no relatives in St. Paul, but has
beeu working at his trade in this city
for several years, and is pretty well
known to all members of his craft. lie
states that if he is successful in estab
lishing his right to the property he will
go to Florida to reside. There is a
story that young Waltenberger is en
gaged to a young lady, em
ployed 'in a Seventh street re
tail house, and' that the marriage . has
only been prevented of accomplishment
from a desire of the young man to first
get a start in the world. If the
$25,000 windfall is as genuine a piece
of luck as it seems to be, the trip to
Florida may be participated in by a
Mrs. Waltenberger. The heir to this
Southern section has not allowed his
seeming good fortune to affect, him as
far as his everyday life is concerned,
and he goes- to work every morning
just as he did before the insertion of
the $25,000 clause in bis career.
TO RESUME MONDAY.
An Agreement by Which the Elec
tric Line Will Again Be Opened.
There is every probability that elec
tric cars will resume running Monday
on Grand avenue, west of Victoria
street to the river. The difficulty aris
ing out of the electric line cutting
through Macalester Park, necessitating
a rearrangement of the plat of the park,
has been practically adjusted. Yester
day the negotiations with the D. S. B.
Johnston Land company were satisfac
torily ended by the signing of a new
agreement on the part of, Messrs. Ire
land & Cochran, who " are the own
ers of the electrical line. This
agreement provides that unless the re
arrangement of Macalaster Park is com
pleted within ninety days the track and
poles will be taken up and the lots re
stored to their normal condition. There
are several other property owners to be
called upon to give their assent to a cer
tain agreement. : One ot these lives at
New York. He is being communicated
with by wire. Another lives at Lake
land, and a deputation from theMacal
aster Park union left last evening to In
terview him. A third property owner
to be conciliated resides at St. Paul. It
is expected that little difficulty will be
experienced in obtaining the consent
of these property owners to
an agreement, fair to themselves and
also to the owners of the electric road,
which will permit of the resumption of
the cars running through to the river
on Monday. Since the opening of the
line, owing to the lack of motive power,
a f all service of cars has not been furn
ished Macalaster. An additional wire
is to be forthwith put up from Oakdale
avenue to the river, when air the cars
will cover the entire distance of the
line instead of one-half,* as heretofore.

to the 3d of last December, had been in
the employment of the Ryan Drug com
pany as traveling salesman, claimed, in
his complaint, $3,000 damages for an al
leged - assault made upon him by Mr.
Broderick, the manager of the Ryan
Drug company, The defendant, in his
answer and ; in his testimony, admit
ted the ' commission of a tech

the groand that the 7 ' plaintiff
used abusive and insulting language
toward him, and •■ that • the force em

•■ . HAMLINE'S ANNUAL. '.
The Great St. Paul University is in
The annual catalogue of Hamline
university for the present year was '■
issued yesterday. The catalogue is an
interesting one from the fact that it
shows a wonderful growth in this insti
tution for the year just closing. While
the past year has been but a fair one for
many institutions of learning, Hamline
.has doubled its attendance in almost all
of its departments. The college classes
have doubled in their membership, and
the year's increase in students
over last year lias been one
. hundred. This is an institu
tion which both believes in and
practice co-education as this last year
;there have been 130 ladies in attend
ance. The greater number of the
students, and in fact almost all of them,
have been pursuing a strictly collegiate
course, either classical or scientific, and
but very. few. have been taking special
courses in music and art, which are so
iargely patronized in some institutions.
The school has also been a success finan
cilly. and the last year's expenses
have made no debts which must
be carried over to another
year. The outlook for the next
year is very encouraging. Already
fifty high school graduates have been
secured for the freshman class, who,
with those prepared by Hamline this
year and the new ones entering, will
make one of the largest classes in
stitution has ever had. Another year
'a new chair will be added, that of his
tory, which will be filled by Dr. George
S.Tnnis, who has been in Europe the
'past-year studying. A valuable contri
bution of minerals, the gift of Dr.llunt,
of Anoka, has lately been added to the
museum. *•■-— is, '- *
I 7y. CHORAL CHORUS.
The f Blaikie Concert Proves a
\ ii Deserved Success.
: It was a thoroughly musical audience
that', which assembled last evening at
the Atlantic Congregational church to
listen to the first concert given under
the auspices of the Blaikie Choral club.
The programme opened with the mag
nificent anthem '.Praise Ye the Fath
er." magnificently sung by the choral
club under the direction of James
'Blaikie. The solo '-Non Torno" was
exquisitely rendered by Mrs. L. V. Har
ris, who also sang the beautiful solo
"My Heart Is Thy Home." and wa3 ap
plauded to the echo by her en
thusiastic audience. "The Water
Mill" by the Christ Church quar
tette, and other selections by„ the
some organizations were well received,
as also was the anthem, "The Radiant
Morn," by the choral club, and the glee
song, "Who Will O'er the Downs," by
the same body. The Beethoven string
quartette gave a number of selections,
and sustained its reputation for artistic
and finished work. The college songs
by the Christ Church quartette were
popular, and the entire entertainment
was a success in every way. The church
was well filled, and the concert an ar
tistic and financial success.
The Teachers' Excursion.
The time of starting of the excursion
of teachers to White Bear and Mahto
medi. arranged for Saturday, May 31,
has been changed from 12:10 to 9:30 a.
in., and returning leave Mahtomedi at
3:30 p. m. This change has been made
by the courtesy of the St. Paul & Du
luth railroad, to enable the teachers to
have the best part of the day at the
lake. It will be necessary for the teach
ers to take a basket of lunch, or make
their arrangements for din tier. C. B.
Lawton, manager of the excursion, has
chartered all the steamboats on the lake
to be at the free disposal of the teach
ers, by the kindness of the Mahtomedi
Chautauqua Assembly. Also the boats
will be made free for the excursionists.
t Two hundred and ' fifty teachers have
already sent in their names to the man
l ager for tickets. -SSggJ
A thirty-minute programme will be
the first order of exercises at the im
mense amphitheater, in which Prof.
Gilbert and others will talk. The
board of education and their wives have
been invited to attend. Should the day
be rainy, ample provisions will be made
in the hotels and other buildings. The
excursionists may get off at any place
on the lake. Mahtomedi hotel will be'
open for those needing refreshments,
but a basket picnic is generally ex
pected. • ___7 ■■-•_'.*'.-' ':•;" ; '_:^-r>
