NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Globe learns that the publica
tion in its issue of last Sunday of cer
tain gossip which dealt with a disagree
ment reported to have arisen in
the Woman's Relief Corps of the G A.
X.. concerning the production of the
military drama of "Allatoona" did au
injustice to two estimable Minneapolis
ladies who were prominent in the
matter. The statement that the play
was a "fiasco," or a failure, is said to be
unjust as all circumstances considered,
together with the fact that amateur
talent was engaged in the presentation,
it was quite creditably put on,
so well in fact that Judge ilea
and other prominent G. A. R. men
have requested that it be reproduced.
As the ladies in question suffered a
financial less too, when their earnest
efforts for the good of the cause really
merited remuneration, the claim that
there was any appropriation of funds is
ridiculous, and at the same time particu
larly unpleasant. The play was given,
it is said, under trie auspices of the W,
R. C, statements to the contrary not
withstanding, and there was no
"sailing under false colors.*" as
has been alleged by certain parties.
The Globe hopes that the disagree
ments that have arisen will be allowed
to quiet, and if "Allatooua" is produced
again will certainly take pleasure in
giving the project its hearty support.

THE BOODLE BUSINESS
The Grand Jury Thinks It
Useless to Consider the
The Question Arises, "Is This
Talk About "Pressure" and the
Earnestness of the Prose
Views of People Who Look
At It From Different
The grand jury has adjourned for
good, and it is given out authoritatively
that no more indictments for Doodling
have been found against city officials.
The matter of boodle was taken up yes
terday when the jury met and discussed
at some length, but it .was finally de
cided that it would be useless to find
any indictments. There was a good
deal of evidence before the jury going
to show that there had been crooked
ness of no small extent in the present
administration of the city government,
but it was not of a nature to insure con
viction, and in consideration of the out
come of the McGowan case it was not
deemed advisable to saddle upon the
county an expensive litigation with
out its success being a certainty.
At least one alderman, who fre
quently bears a prominent part
in the proceedings of the coun
cil, was, it is reported, all
but indicted. There was evidence
enough against him to make his final
indictment a ton-gone conclusion. In
fact, it is almost a certainty that a true
bill was really made out and afteward
destroyed because of a lack of corrob
orative testimony. The witness whose
evidence bore strongly upon this alder
man had not, however, told the same
story before the council investigating
committee which he did before the
grand jury, and that, of course,
weakened "his evidence somewhat.
He had told the special council commit
tee that he knew of no crookedness, but
he went before the grand jury and re
lated instances of aldermanic bribery of
which lie knew personally. Unfortu
nately his evidence could not be suffi
ciently corroborated to make it unim
OTHEH BOODLE CASES.
On the failure of the grand jury to
find any more indictments for official
misdemeanors, the question natur
ally, arises, what will be done
with the two indictments for
dabbling in bribery which still stand.
Hanev's case proper will not come up
at this term of court. One phase of it
will be brought out, however, within a
very few clays, when the demurrer to
the indictment against Haney and its
argument occupy the attention of the
courts, Haney's attorneys will demur
to the indictment on the ground that it
does not state a public offense. It will
be argued that, even if Haney
did solicit money to be paid to
him. and by him to be used
in bribing aldermen, he did not
offend against the law nor break a sin
gle statute in fore ■ in the state of Min
nesota. County Attorney Jamison will,
of course, contest the demurrer, and
he feels confident that the demurrer
will be overruled. He believes that he
has a strong case against Haney, and
that he will secure a conviction.
Then there is the indictment which
stands against Aid. Fred Brueshaber.
What will be done with that? Brue
shaber's case is set for a few days
hence, but. as has been before stated, it
will be continued over the term. So
tar as the public knows, Brueshaber
was indicted on practically the same
evidence as was McGowan. That
being the case, it is difficult to
see how he can be convicted.
But the county attorney has said that he
has a much stronger case against Brue
shaber than he had against his colleague
in the council, and that he is confident
of securing a verdict of guilty of the
crime of agreeing to accept a bribe, as
charged in the indictment, It has also
been said that the county attorney has
discovered new and sensational evi
dence which he thinks might go far to
ward convicting the First Ward alder
man, the further examination of which
he wishes to secure time for by allowing
"Brueshaber's case to be continued.
If this be the correct theory in regard
to the matter, the reason for the contin
uance and for the delay in dismissing
the case is satisfactory; but there are
those persons in the city who have an
WAS THERE "PP.ESSU:
When the three indictments for Dood
ling were returned by the grand jury
last April, it was pretty generally un
derstood that tremendous pressure
would be brought to bear to
thwart the pushing of these cases.
As the general public well knows,
one case, that of McGowan, was brought
to trial and resulted in an acquittal.
Now, was McGowan, he being a Demo
crat, put forward as a scapecoat, or was
his trial merely a blind and the verdict
the result of the aforementioned "press
ure?" The number of persons who in
cline to the latter view are not few.
Their opinion is, moreover, warranted
by several facts in connection with the
conduct of that case. Any one who fol
lowed that case closely is apt to think
that the prosecution of the McGowan
case was conducted rather loosely
—not as it there were a sav
agely determined effort to convict.
The attention which would be naturally
expected to be shown was hardly given
to the selection of the jury which sat
upon the case. Men were allowed to
serve on that jury who, by acquaint
ance or association, might be expected
to look with a lenient eye upon the
cause of the defendant. Then the
prosecution did not ask to have the
jury locked up, a safeguard always
thrown around the trial of a case of
such importance. The prosecuting
attorneys were fond of remarking
all through the case that McGowan
stood charged with one of the greatest
of crimes, yet no special care was ex
pended in the trial. That whole jury
might have been purchased bodily, al
though it is not charged nor • even sug
gested. It might have been accom
plished as far as preventive measures
Now the persons who believe that the
prosecution of McGowan was not care
fully conducted say this: That par
ticular alderman was brought to
trial to quiet public clamor. Hi
prosecution was loosely conducted in
order to insure his acquittal. This was
all the result of pressure, and that pres
sure was brought to bear in order that
the eyes of the public might be filled
with the dust, while the matter of the
exposure of official crookedness could
be given an opportunity to sink into
Although the persons holding these
opinions may possibly be the victims -of
erroneous ideas, and perhaps are, the
fact remains that there is a large body
of citizens in Minneapolis who do not
believe that these charges of boodling
have been sifted to the bottom, as they
should have been, and either proved or
disproved beyond the possibility of a

FANNY ON TUE STAND.
Nearly All the Evidence in the
Davenport Case Presented.
The same persons who have attended
the case all of this week were on hand
again yesterday to listen to the suit
against Fanny Davenport, Several
ladies, some of them evidently stage
struck, wandered in during the day aud
gazed long and intently at the famous
actress. But she never seemed to mind
it in the least.
As soon as court opened, Judge Smith
denied the motion to dismiss made by
Miss Davenport's attorneys on the
ground that the alleged libelous uotice
was a privileged communication, In
denying the motion, the court said:
•'The court hasnt had auy doubt at any
time during this case as to whether or not it
could dismiss this action or direct the ver
dict of the jury. The court cannot do it But
there has been some doubt as to whether the
testimony ".should be admitted without some
amendment. It is the opinion of the court
that the notice comes under the head of
libelous on the fact, and not in the class of
privileged communications. There could be
no necessity for the words 'uugentlemanly
and disourteous.' "
Miss Davenport was the first witness
of the morning, her examination being
conducted by Judge Dittenhoefer. The
New York * theatrical attorney stood
during his examination of the witness,
and asked his questions in a dramatic
manner. Miss Davenport admitted that
Melbourne McDowell was her husband:
said she had been on the stage since
she was seven years old; and that, on
several occasions, the members of her
company had been paid their salaries
in proportion to the number of
performances given, without;... any
objection having been made; and
she was, therefore, much surprised
when Willard, her manager, told her
that Lotts and Williams had refused to
accept a half-week's salary. Willard
had also told her that these two actors
had applied opprobrious epithets to her.
Mr. McDowell afterward told her that
he knew that the two men had said
that they would make her name ring all
over the country; that they had called
her "a ,'.- and had sung a comic
song, in which her mtme appeared,
part of the words of the song being
"We'll do her ud." It was then that
McDowell had demanded that she post
a severe notice to the company. -~ ■
McDowell afterward went upou the
stand, and in that deep melodious voice
which has before now made the walls of
the old Pence opeia house and the pub
lic hall of Anoka vibrate with passion,
told how he came to find out what Lotto
and Williams had said. His dresser, one
Clifton, had overheard it and had told
him about it.
During the afternoon depositions of
John M. Flynn and his wife, who were
members of the Davenport company,
were read. Their depositions were to
the effect that it was the custom of
theatrical companies to post such no
tices as the one iv question behind the
scenes. Their evidence also set forth
that Lotto and Williams had spoken of
Miss Davenport in a discourteous man
ner. Mrs. Flynn said that she had
heard Lotto speak sneeringly of Miss
Davenport as "the fair Fanny."
Theo Roberts' deposition, taken in St,
Louis, was also read. He said that
Lottjo and Williams frequently spoke of
Miss Davenport in a discourteous man
ner. He also gave Lotto and Williams
a bad reputation, and said that they
were wont to conduct themselves so dis
gracefully that he refused to stop at
the same hotels with them. He also
said, and this was a point for the
plaintiff, that it was the custom of
theatrical companies- to pay weekly
salaries without regard to the number
of performances per week. He de
posed further that he had heard the
two actors call Miss Davenport vile
A deposition from Willard, who was
Miss Davenport's business manager
and also the man who was thrashed by
Williams, was next read. He was man
ager when Lotts and Williams refused
to accept a halt" week's salary, aud he
further testified that it was the
practice of theatrical companies
to pay a regular weekly salary,
even though the company did not play
more than once or twice a week. He,
too, had heard Lotto and Williams ap
ply vile and obscene epithet- to Miss
Davenport when speaking of her.
Lotto and Williams were both on the
stand later, and denied that they had
ever used The language attributed to
them. Judge Dittenhoefer then, at 5
o'clock, rose to make a motion in regard
to the striking out of certain evidence,
and Judge Smith dismissed the jury
until 10 o'clock Monday morning, the
motion to be decided then. Miss Dav
enport will not wait for the verdict, but
will leave for New York to-night, to
sail for Europe on the 28th.
THEIR FIFTH ANNUAL
Anniversary of the Y. M. C. A.
John Mills, chairman of the execu
tive committee of. the railroad branch
of the Y. M. C. A., presided at the fifth
anniversary of that organization, which
was held in the building No. 21 South
Second street last evening. The chair
man's table was profusely decorated
with the "tools of the trade," artistic
ally arranged. There were signal flags
and lanterns, telegraph instruments,
baggage checks, railroad spikes, oil
cans and machinists' tools and con
ductors' ticket punches, showing
that every part of the craft was
represented. The treasurer's report
showed that the receipts for the year
had been -53,589.97 and the expenditures
£3,584.96, leaving a balance on hand of
15.01. Secretary Jager reported that
during the past twelve months there
had been 17,973 visitors in the rooms of
the branch. Baths -vere furnished to
7.000. The attendance at the fifteen
lectures was 1,412. One hundred and
ninety-eight new members were ad
mitted, making the total membership at
present 273. Two hundred and sixty
six letters were written in the rooms,
and 182 were received for railroad men.
Fifty-tour visits were made by the sec
retaries to sick or .injured men, and
twenty-six meetings were conducted
outside the rooms. There were
eighteen, special . services held in
churches which were attended by 4,700
people and forty-three noon meetings
were conducted, in the- railroad shops.
Four hundred and" seventy-two volumes
were borrowed from the library.* .
The programme consisted of a cornet
solo by. E. B. Houser, songs by Miss
Hamilton and Miss Quilard, piano solos
by Miss Fritz and Miss Finseth, and
speeches by George A. Brackett and C.
A. Dwyer, president of the Minneapolis
Y. M. C. A. Letters were also read
from W. G. Collins, of the Milwaukee
road; W. T. Small, of the Northern Pa
cific; W. M. Kelly and F. D. Under
wood, of the "Soo," and W. H. Trues
dale, of the St. Louis.

were a handsome party of young ladies
and gentlemen, and the closing part of
the exercises was enjoyed as only such
affairs can be, by the young peopfe who
have succeeded in winning their lau
rels at the point of the pen. H. L.
Hartley, of the class of 'S9, officiated as
toastifiaster, and filled the position with
success. Anna L. Stacy was the first
speaker, having been appointed his
torian, and her address showed how
well she deserves the praise that has
been bestowed upon her ability as an
orator. John E. Merrill spoke of the
class of '87 in well chosen remarks.
S. S. Paquin recited an orig

J. S. Bradstreet Returns After
Making an Extended Tour. '
J. S. Bradstreet, the well known Min
neapolis decorator, returned yest erday
after an extended tour of the world.
When Mr. Bradstreet left Minneapolis
he was in poor health, but now he ha
fully recovered and is strong and vigor
ous, In speaking of his trip, he said:
"I have taken what 1 think is a sensible
trio around- the world, that is, I have
taken my time to it, have goue when
and where I pleased, seen what I wanted
and stayed as long as I cared to. The
best part of the whole thing is I got
what* I went for, and that was better
health. 1 was advised by my physician
that such a trip would be beneficial.and
1 thought so myself. 1 started from
Minneapolis Nov. 10, over the Canadian
Pacific railroad for Vancouver. From
there I went to Yokohama. It was cold
weather, and the ocean voyage to that
place was anything but pacific. I staid
in Japan five weeks. There are hun
dreds of interesting things to see in
that country. I spent a great amount of
time among the old temples."
"You naturally gained some new ideas

visit those marvelous places without
absorbing ideas, especially among the
beautiful piles at Nikko, but 1 will not

not like to undertake to talk about them
unless 1 did it well, and that I cannot

visiting Shanghai. Hong Kong and Can
ton. Thence I went to Ceylon through

left India on the 4th of Aprii, visited
Cairo a week and then came directly
home. Altogether! traveled by land
and sea 29,000 miles, and rode on eight

'there is no place like home.' --
ON ALBEE'S REPUTATION.
End of the Evidence in the Suit
Against the Pioneer
The trial of the libel suit brought .... by
Charles Albee against the Pioneer Press
was again on yesterday, but, contrary
to expectations, noue of the testimony
introduced was of a sensational charac
ter. Emma Spicer was the first witness
called. She testified that Albee bore a
bad reputation and also that Mrs.
Becker had told her of Albee's persecu
tions. Several well-known lawyers
were put upon the stand to tell what
sort of character Albee bore and all
said that it was bad. One of them, .
Hazen M. Parker, went further, and in
answer to the question as to Albee's ;
reputation, replied:. "It was bad. Rot
ten would be a better word."
Willie Becker, Mrs. Becker's son,
afterward went on the stand, but he
was very close-mouthed. Little was got
out of him, his manner of testifying
showing that he had been coached.
Mrs. Becker followed and was alike
uncommunicative, and she would ad
mit nothing but that when she lived in
the same house with Albee he always
treated her kindly, as she did liim. J. J.
Smith, detective, was also a witness,
but what he said had little bearing upon
the case. George Preston, an Ameri
can District messenger boy, testified
to having seen Albee ejected from the
Miller boarding house when he tried to
force himself into Mrs. Becker's room.
The complaint which Albee's wife
filed some tive years ago preliminary to
securing a divorce, was introduced and
read. She secured a divorce from Al
bee on the ground of cruel and inhu
man treatment. Four witnesses who
had never heard bad stories about Al-
Dee were then put upon the stand, and
were followed by Albee.
Albee entered a general denial to all
the evidence which had been introduced
against him. He said he always had
treated Mrs. Becker in a gentlemanly
manner, and when asked if he thought
attempting to force himself into Mrs.
Becker's sick room was gentlemanly,
"Yes, I do. 1 will explain. Mrs.
Becker owned some property for which;
I had received an otter, to be open but
a short time, aud I went up to see her
about that matter."
"When Mrs. Becker went to Mil
bank, why didn't you go up and speak
to her at the depot if you were on such
"I most certainly would if it hadn't
been for the woman with her, Mrs.
Miller," and Mrs. Miller smiled all over.
That ended the evidence in the case.
The attorney for the defense argued his
case, and court adjourned uutil this
morning, when the arguments will be
finished and the case given to the jury.
During the morning session, while A.
P. Loomis was on the stand, a wordy
war arose between the attorneys on
each side and between Loomis and the
attorney for Albee. During the con
troversy the blood of the three men ran
high, insinuations in plenty were
thrown out by each lawyer against his
opponent's character, by Loomis at
Adams and by Adams at Loomis. A
fight seemed imminent when Judge
Pea summarily ordered a cessation of
the matter, .Loomis settling down by
remarking to Adams: "I'll settle with
you outside." .' f f
THE ADAMS SCHOOL KICK.
Prof. Crumbie Says Its Pupils Had
an Equal Chance. . ',t,- '.
Prof. Crumbie denies that the Adams i
school was discriminated against in the
make-up of the high school commence
ment plan. He claims that he is in no
way, responsible for the assignments. 1
There are nine places on the pro
gramme, five of them being decided •
the class record, and markings by a
committee. The valedictorian and sal
utatorian are chosen by standings. The
Adams school pupils have an equal
chance for these places, as the highest
record wins. The remaining three of 1
the five are selected as the result of the
markings by a committee for contest-^
ants for the Gale prize. Every member
of the senior high school class .is en- '
titled to compete for a place : in this con
test, but out of the 107 members of the
class only eleven chose to do so.

A NEW MANUFACTORY.
The Kinnard Press Company Lo
cated at Camden Place.
Hay presses are to be made in Minne
apolis, and a factory which will give
employment to a number of hands is
now in the course of construction at
Camden Place. The Kinnard Press
company has secured three and a half
acres about a quarter of a mile from the
water works, and the work will be
pushed rapidly. The buildings will be
bat one story high. The larger will be
210x50 feet, and the smaller 40x36
feet. These buildings will be prop
erly divided into foundry, , machin
ery, wood-working, painting, black
smithing and setting 'up rooms.
The buildings are to be of
brick entirely and the estimated cost is
$5,000. The concern will employ about
seventy-five men. Of course the build
ing of a larger plant necessitates more
machinery. A carload has already
been purchased in the East and is now
on its way here. The plant is located
on the Minneapolis & Pacific division
of the Soo road. The officials of the
Kinnard Press company are: W. J.
Dean, president; O. B. Kinnard. vice
president; A. Harris, secretary, and C.
C. Webber, treasurer. In addition to
the above gentlemen, C. A. Deere and
S. H. Velie, of Moline, 111., are stock

prices for reliable goods.

IS not only a distressing complaint, of
' itself ,. but, by causing the blood to
become depraved and the system en
feebled, ,is the parent of innumerable
maladies. That Ayer's Sarsapariila
is the best cure for Indigestion, even
when complicated with Liver Complaint,
is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockway
Centre, Mich.: —
Liver complaint and indigestion
made my life a burden and came near
, ending my existence. For more than
four years I suffered untold agony, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
had strength to drag myself about. All
kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
all. Within the time mentioned several
physicians treated me without giving re
lief. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
-the use of Ayer's Sarsapariila, which
has produced wonderful results. Soon
after commencing to take -the Sarsapa
riila I could see an improvement in my
condition. My appetite began to return
and with it came the ability to digest
all the food taken, my strength im
proved each day, and after a few
months of faithful attention to your
directions, I found myself a well
woman, able to attend to all household
duties. The medicine haa given me a
new lease of life."
