NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Evening Jay does Ed A. Stevens
an injustice at the time when he should
be sustained by "the uplifted hands of
all good citizens." It intimates that he
is making a desperate effort to become
a member of the Jefferson Democratic
Club, and has received an intimation
that he will be black-balled if he at
tempts to cross the murky waters of t'.ie
political "Rubicon." There is no truth
in this; and further, the astute Edward
has enough to occupy his attention
just now, without having much leisure
to spend in making such "desperate
efforts" as he is credited with.
As the Globe predicted, just as the
papers beean to comment upon the ab

The New York Truth diagnoses the
name William in its several forms, as
follows: "Haven't you always noticed
that men who are called 'Billy' are gen

If a man is called William, lie is gen
erally one who gets little enjoymentout
of life. 'Will' is usually heard when we
are speaking to or of a fellow who is as
steady as one of the pillars that upheld
the Parthenon." Several Minneapolis
"AVills" can take courage from this,

Boucicault's "Streets of New York"
opened for a week at the Bijou last
night to a good house. Frederick Bock
and Jessaline Rogers, both Minneapolis
favorites, received a warm reception,
the former in the character of Tom
Badger, which he portrays in a manner
that won great favor from the audience,
while Miss Rogers gave a finished per
formance of the rather disagreeable
character of Alida Bloodgood. The re
mainder of the cast is efficient but does
not call for special mention with
the exception of W. A. Adams,
who made an excellent Gideon Blood
good. The play is familiar to theater
goers, and has all of the features of a
sensational drama of the Boucicault
school, including the young lovers in
distress about to be ruined by the vil

admirable manner, and is, in fact, by
far the best piece of work done by this
company, livery individual member of
the cast has a part particularly adapted
to his or her capabilities, the chorus
does really meritorious work, and the
result is a performance which is well
worth witnessing. A special treat
will be given the ladies and chil

the company, which claims that it has a
claim against the city for water rent,

S. A. Harris Resigns From the
Presidency of the North
Terrible and Probable Fatal
Accident to a Little Girl
at Lake Minnetonka.
Something over a year ago the whole
world was amazed by the cleverness of
the trick by which the First National
bank of Denver was robbed of 521,000.
The robber, it will be remembered,
presented himself to President Wal
cott of the bank as a desperate man,
resolved to secure money or die in the
attempt. He shoved the muzzle of an
ugly looking revolver under the presi
dent's nose, exhibited a bottle which
he declared was nitro-glycerine,
and swore that if the money
were not immediately handed over to
him, or if an alarm were given Presi
dent Wolcott would die and the whole
building would be shattered by the ex
plosive. How the money was couuted
out to him and how he immediately dis
appeared as if swallowed by the earth
has been detailed before. Nor has there,
so far as the public knows, ever been
found further trace of him. His scheme
for eluding capture must have been as
original as was his plan for getting the
money, for lie has never been caught.
Popular belief has it that he never will
be caught, his method being so original
that detectives know not where to place
him nor where to look for him.
In tills case, as often before, public
belief is at fault. The pursuit of this
smooth burglar lias not been abandoned.
Experienced detectives hold that no
thief is so clever as to never make a
slip. Hence a case is rarely given up
until oil known expedients and methods
of search have been abandoned. This
Denver robbery is no exception to that
rule. The case was placed in the hands
of the Pinkerton agency, by the em
ployes of which it has been carefully
studied and followed for now above a
year. Two Pinkerton men, as a result
of this persistency, were in Minneapolis
less than four days ago looking for the
man who so successfully "did up" the
First National bank of Denver.
The robber, Nvheu he took that
nioney, insisted that he be given $1,000
in gold and the remainder in paper,
which was done. That freak will event
ually lead to his apprehension. A man
who passed under ttie name of Metzger
is known to have passed notes supposed
to have been in that ? % JO,OOO roll. Some
of the bills were of the $1,000 denomina
tion, new silver certificates of a certain
date, hence the facility with which they
have been traced. This man Metzger was
recently located in Minneapolis. That
he was here there is no doubt. The
Pinkerton agency was equally well sat
isfied that he was their man. He was
in Minneapolis and felt himself safe, so
they felt confident of bagging him, con
sequently two of the best detectives in
the employ of the Pinkerton agency
were dispatched to Minneapolis to make
doubly sure of the matter before arrest
ing him, as hitherto there has been
nothing said about the pursuit of Metz
eer, and the detectives disliked lettinir
the case into the papers and thus
"putting Metzger on." They arrived
here Saturday night and registered at
the Nicollet as S. B. Holden and J. E.
Mulligan. They found their man living
here as a quiet, peaceable citizen, with
a fair income and a predilection for a
quiet lite. Just as they were about to
gather him in, however, and while they
had but momentarily lost sight of him,
he left the city. As near as they could
learn Metzger went to Duluth or to
West Superior, and thither Holden and
Mulligan followed yesterday. The cap
ture of one of the smoothest robbers of
recent times will result in a few days.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING. JULY 1, 1890.
S. A. HARRIS RETIRES.
A Change in the Management of
the Northwestern Bank.
At a meeting of the directors of the
Northwestern bank held yesterday aft
ernoon, the resignation of S. A. Harris,
as president, was received and accept
ed. This action of Mr. Harris will be
a surprise to the public, as he has been
so closely identified with the affairs of
the bank for the past ten years that it
will be hard to dissociate one from the
oilier. Mr. Harris resigns to assume ■
an active part in the management of
the affairs of the great elevator sys
tem of T. H. Peavey & Co.,
in which he has acquired
an interest. That he will receive the
best wishes of his former associates in
the Northwestern and the citizens of
Minneapolis generally goes without
saying. Mr. Harris' successor was not
seiected, and the management of the
bank will devolve upon J. B. Forgan,
who has so acceptably filled the position
of cashier. C. T. Jatfray, head book
keeper, was also appointed to the posi
tion of assistant cashier, which was
made vacant by the resignation of W.
E. Burwell some two years ago.
A Little Girl Is Maimed for Life
by an Explosion.
A most distressing and perhaps fatal
accident happened at St. Louis Park,
Lake Minnetonka, on Sunday evening.
Little Dora P. Barto, the thirteen-year
oki daughter of Mrs. Barto, a widow
who lives in the "white house" at
Northome, adjoining the Hotel St.
Louis, had been playing with some of
the young folks in the grove connected
with the hotel. She picked up a curi
ous little copper cylinder, encrusted
with earth, and containing, as she sup
posed, white sand. She took it home,
and while waiting for her mother
to prepare supper she attempted
to pick the white sand with which tha
little cylinder was filled out with a hat
pin. Suddenly there was a loud explo
sion, all the glass in the room in which
Dora was sitting was shattered, and
when her mother rushed in Dora was
lying insensible on the floor. Mrs Bar
ton ran screaming to the hotel, and As
sistant Manager Howe accompanied her
to her home with several of the guests
of the hotel. Mr. Howe was perfectly
cool, and to his coolness Dora owes
her life, provided it is saved. Al
though unable to get anything near
an accurate account of what
had happened he gathered enough to
know that an explosion had occurred
and that something had to be done and
done quickly. Snatching up a sheet in
the linen closet he hastily prepared
bandages and with a bottle of camphor
and a small amount of brandy he
hastened to the white house. The sight
that met the gaze of the people from the
hotel was horrible, and Maj. Hendrick
son declared that the room in which
Dora lay looked more like a slaughter
house than a quiet parlor. Blood was
everywhere and the poor child tossed
around the floor in agony while the
blood spurted in great jets from
her wounds. Fortunately Mr. Howe
knew something of surgery and
in a short time stopped the flow of
blood. Dr. Small, of Excelsior, was tel
egraphed for, and, with the assistance
of Mr. Howe, did everything that could
be done. Dora rested easily yesterday,
and the physician says she has now
about an even chance of recovery, al
though he will not say positively that
she will live.
As near as can be learned the cause
of the accident was the explosion of the
fulminating cap. Dora held it in her
left hand, while with a hat pin she was
digging out the powder, when it ex
ploded. The thumb and three fingers
of the left hand and the index finger
of the right hand were blown
entirely off. A small piece of
the metal imbedded itself in her side
and her face was singed by the flame.
Dr. Small says that to the foresisrht and
prompt action of Mr. Howe Dora owes
her lite. As her mother is a widow, and
is not blessed with too much cash, Man
ager Wait last evening started a sub
scription among the guests of the Hotel
St. Louis, and quite a respectable sum
-was realized for the payment of such
expenses as will be incurred before
Dora can recover.
How the Fourth of July Will Be

Manager Miller has arranged for con
certs, afternoon and evening, by the

BURNED AT DAYBREAK.
The Huhn Block Destroyed at a
Cost of $80,000.
The Huhn block, 123 Nicollet avenue,
in which was located the drug store of
George Huhn and the type foundry of
Marder, Luse & Co., was destroyed by
fire yesterday morning. The total loss
will amount to nearly $80,000, partially
covered by insurance.
The fire was diseoveredat 4:4s o'clock
in the morning by Officer Tom Garvin.
The smoke was issuing in dense vol
umes from the rear of the block. Au
alarm was turned in, but before the ap
paratus arrived the fire vyas well under
way and fiercely consuming all the in
llamable material in Marder, Luse &
Co.'s establishment. The elevator shaft
in the rear operated as a chimney to
draw up the flames to the top of the
building, and within ten minutes after
the alarm was turned the whole of the
building was ablaze, sheets of flame
bursting from the windows and shooting
above the tops of the adjoining build
ings. It looked at one time as if the
adjoining buildings would become ig
, nited, but earnest work on the part of
the firemen saved them. The Huhn
building itself was too far gone when
the firemen arrived to be saved by any
possibility. A few minutes after the
first stream was turned upon the blaz
ing block there came a crash, the whole
inside of the building, seemingly, hav
ing fallen. The heavy machinery on
the top floor had broken the beams,
already weakened by the fire, and down
it went crashing through all floors below
to the basement. The structure was
completely gutted. Everything within
the four walls that would burn was re
duced to ashes, the machinery of the
type foundry was wrecked, and nothing
remained but the bare walls. The
Northwestern Labor Union was also
published in that block. Its counting
room was eutirely burned out, while but
little was saved from the main office,
in the extreme front of the building.
Nothing was saved from Huhn's drug
store on the ground floor. It is not
known iust how the fire originated, but
it is believed to have started in the ster
eotyping room on the secord floor.
C*. C. Webster, resident partner and
manager of Marder, Luse & Co.'s estab

at $50,000. They occupied partof the

bing down, and to-day will begin the
four days' trotting meeting of the Min
nehaha Driving Park association at
Minnehaha Park. There are nine
events for the four days, two each being
given on the first three days, and the
three remaining events, including the
free-for-all pace, being given on July 4,
when there will undoubtedly be a large
attendance. The horses already
stabled at the park are being put
through their paces preparatory to the
speed trials, and about the stables is a
Beginning with this afternoon, pre
cisely at 3 o'clock, the entries in the
three-minute trot will be called to the
track. For this race there are nine
horses to contest for a purse of $800.
The list contains some good ones, and
the event should be close and exciting.

The second event of the day is the
2:24 pace for an $800 purse. There are
but four entries to this, but they are all
from good stables, and it promises to be
a close contest. The entries are: 1.

The management has been highly
successful in securing entries, sixty
three of some of the best flyers in the
West being on the books of the associa
tion. The different events have been
ably distributed over the four days, so
that each afternoon will see contests
well worth going to see. The 2:30 trot
for to-morrow will be a lively tussle, as
the entries show up well-matched in re
gard to possible speed. The 2:24 trot
on Thursday afternoon, has in it such
speedy ones as Egmont, Play Boy,
fanny Belmont and Jimmy C, which
wjth three others equally as promising
will give a contest that will be well
The free-for-all pace on the Fourth,
with Bessemer, Uncle Jack. Doctor M
and Fred Arthur, will furnish a trial of
speed that will probably be the best of
the meeting. As the track is one of the
most speedy in the country, if the
weather is warm, the flyers should
lower their records.
Motors will leave Washington and
First avenues north at 1,1:33, 2 and
2:30 o'clock p. m. for the track, and will
leave every half hour after 4 o'clock, re
turning to the city.
A NATIONAL DEPOSITORY.
Minneapolis Is Now Ranked as a
Reserve Banking City.
George E. Maxwell, cashier of the
Twin City bank, wired the comptroller
at Washington that the banks of Min
neapolis had complied with the law,
which makes the Flour City a reserve
city. He has been in correspondence
with the Washington official for some
time, getting the required instructions,
which have been all complied with.
The move is an important one, and will
add greatly to the volume of currency in
the city. It will increase the business
of the national banks, give Minneapolis
additional claims as a market center.and
greatly increase the city's banking
The national banking law requires
that all national banks are required to
keep a certain sum of money on deposit
in some bank, outside of their regular
funds, and any bank in a reserve city
may be designated as a depository. It
can be readily seen to what an extent
this will help Minneapolis, as any of the
smaller national banks in the Northwest
may now deposit their fund in Minne
apolis without sending it East. It will
also cause large numbers of Eastern
banks to place deposits in Minneapolis,
so that they may have funds here against
which to draw. The prestige will also
give to Minneapolis an increased volume
of country banking trade, which is an
end that has long been desired by all
the business men of Minneapolis.
KILLED AT GLEXWOOD.
George Benton, an Operator, Run

George Benton, a telegraph operator,
