ROW OX A CAR.
A Conductor Viciously Attacked
by Three Men. '
About S:3O o'clock last evening, three
■men, two colored- and a white man,
boarded an East Seventh street cable
car at Robert street. The trio took
Beats on the roar end of the trailer, and
■were all smoking. ; The conductor,
George D. liutchins, called their atten
tion to the rule which forbids smok
ing ow any but the crip car. His
remarks called forth abusive and insult
ing language from the fellows. The
car was crowded, the majority of the
passengers being ladies. The conductor
did not stop to argue, but went on col
lecting fares. At Broadway several of
the female passengers complained
about the actions of the three
men, and the conductor again told
them they would have to stop smoking
or get off the car. One of the colored
men became very abusive, and the con
. ductor reached over and, taking the
cigar from his mouth, threw it in the
street. At this the trio made an assault
on the conductor, and for a few "mo
ments there was great excitement.
The two colored men were armed with
"knuckles," and, as they crowded the
conductor to the rear platform, they did
some heavy slugging. Their white
companion took a . hand in the.
scuffle, .but his efforts were mainly
; directed to the pocket in which
! |he "con" had his money. The batUe

stopped, and, while the women screamed
and 'fainted, the male passengers snouted
for the police. This frightened the
■jrang, and they ran down John street. ~"

'•tressed and then gave the police, who
by this time had arrived on the scene, a
description of his assailants. It is
thought that the fellows were thieves
jwho thought, by setting in a
"row with the conductor, could rob him.
liutchins was severely cut about the
head and face, the most severe wound
being a deep trash about two inches
long over his left eye. The police were
given a good description of the men.

A REFORM MUDDLE.
The Council, Ignoring the
Legal Department, Gets
Itself Into a Hole.
Its Action in Regard to Edu
cation Finances Alto
The Reform Legal Lights Are
Now Making 1 Certain Ex
Attorney General Clapp Ad
vises That the State Sena
tors "Hold Over."
Ever since the new administration
took charge of city affairs there has
been a:i effort made to ignore the legal
department of the city government.
Comptroller McCardy was the first one
to announce that when he needed any
legal opinion from the city attorney he
would ask for it. Assemblyman Light
ner didn't say so in that many words.
but has frequently intimated that there
were members of the council who were
as well posted on legal questions
as the law department of the city.
City Treasurer Miller made no bones of
his views, and told a gentleman, who
suggested an opinion on a legal maiter
from the city attorney, that the present
incumbent of the corporation attorney's
office was a Democrat and would be apt
to decide against him. By reason of this,
what might be termed over-confidence
in their trreat legal ability, the members
of the council have run up against an
Section :■"» of the bill passed at the last
session of the legislature, creating a
board ot education, provides that the
council shall have the power by or
dinance to reduce the total or aggregate
amount of all salaries for the school
year, specifying the amount to be taken
From the Salaries
and the amount to be taken from other
employes of the board. A special com
mittee was appointed by the president
of the common council, who is one of
the foremost legal lights of the city
fathers, to consider the estimate of
the board, which was submitted
to the mayor in June, and
by that official to the council.
After numerous meetings and much ar
gument and discussion the committee
submitted an exhaustive report, accom
panied by an ordinance, which was
passed by the board of aldermen Aug. 2
and by tbe assembly Thurday night.
The ordinance as passed said that the
estimate of the board of education be
reduced by taking from the amount to
be paid as salaries to teachers ?48,00iJ,
and from the amount to be paid
as salaries to other employes §5,000.
This was supposed to be all right, and
the mayor, who was the first to recom
mend a reduction in the school board
expenditures, waited around the coun
cil chamber Thursday night until the
ordinance had been declared passed.
Yesterday morning the attention of
his honor was called to the fact that the
so-called ordinance reported by the
committee and passed by both branches
of the council
Was IV. G.
This statement was at first thought by
the mayor to be a joke, but an opinion
from the legal department on the so
called ordinance was that it did not
meet the requirements of tne occasion.
In order to convince the mayor of the
fact iiis attention was called to a part of
section G of the school board law,
which provides that the expense of
the public schools shall not in
any year exceed the amount of
money appropriated and set apart
therefor by the common council.
Under the ordinance dratted by the
committee, and on which the legal lights
of the board of alderman and assembly
had put their seal of approval, and after
wards passed, no amount of money is
appropriated or set apart for the school
expenses. The opinion of one of the
members of tlie school board seen yes
terdaj was that, until an ordinance had
been passed appropriating some certain
amount of money, the board could
not expend one dollar in the
payment of salaries or running ex
penses of the schools. The member
from the board defined his position in
To the Mayor,
and, as it"vvas practLcally the same as
thai taken by the legal department,
messages were sent out to bring the
special committee on schools, as well as
Assemblyman Litrhtner, to the mayor's
office. A long consultation was held,
the result of whi?h was that it
reflected on the members of the council
to admit so great a mistake had been
made, and that all the trouble in pass
ing the ordinance was to no effect.
In line with this view, Assemblyman
Johnson, as soon as the consultation was
over, said the ordinance was all right so
far as it went. The members of the com
mittee, he intimated.had been aware all
the time that the ordinance passed
would have no effect on the question.
It was simply put through to get an ex
pression from the members as to what
was the best course to pursue in the
'•great problem." The regular ordi
nauoe under the provisions of section G
would, iie said, be passed by the board
of aldermen at their next meeting on
Aug. lt». and at a special meeting of the
assembly to be called the next night.
As to why all the unnecessary trouble
bad to be taken in drafting and passing
a new ordinance and the reason for not
putting the matter all in one Mr. John
son didn'fr say.
Others, who were called in by the
mayor to discuss the situation, didn't
have exactly.the same explanation as to
the failure to pass tlie correct ordinance,
but then they were not in a position to
understand the affair which might ac
count for their versions.
A meeting of the board of education
was called for last night for the purpose
of taking action on the reduction as
provided for in the ordinance. It being
learned that the ordinance, as passed,
had no legal effect, the meeting was

* SENATORS HOLD OVER.
Attorney General Clapp's Opinion
on an Important Legal Ques
Attorney General Clapp yesterday.'
rendered his opinion on the disputed
question of whether or not it will be
necessary to elect state senators in the
odd districts of the state the coming
election. He decides in the negative.
His opinion is given in a letter to the
secretary of state, and is as follows:
Yon inquire whether it will be neces
sary to give notice of election of state
senators for odd-numbered districts at
the coming general election. T
Your inquiry is evidently based upon
the language of section 24 of article 4 of
the Constitution of the State of Minne
sota. Said section reads as follows:
Sec. 24. The senators shall If chosen by
single districts ,of convenient contisrnous
territory. at the same lime thut members of
the house of representatives are required to
be chosen, and i:i the same manner: and no
representative district shall be divided in
tile formation of a senate district. The
senate district shall be numbered in ■ reunlur
series. The terms ot oilice of senators and
representatives shall be the same as now pre
scribed by lav/, until the general election in
the year ISTK'uU which time there shall be an
entire new election- .of, all the senators and
. representatives. Representatives chosen at
i such election,' or at, my election thereafter.
I shall hold- their :6!Hce. tor the- term of two
! years, except it be to fill a vacancy, and the
1 senators chos-.-n at such election bV. districts
I designated its odd numbers, shall ."go out of
THE SAIXT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: g A THE DAY MORNING, AVGUST 13, isaa.
.office nt the .expiration of .the - second year, -
and senators chosen by districts designated
by even numbers, shall go out of office at the
expiration of the fourth year; and thereafter
senators shall be chosen' for four years, ex
cept there shall be an entire new election of
all the senators at the . election of represen
■ tatives next succeeding each new apportion
• ment provided for in this article."
. The above is as section 24 reads since its
amendment in 1877. "
It will be seen that : by the terms of
this section, that representatives chosen
at such election (being the general elec
tion of IS7S), or at any election there
after, shall hold their office for the term
of two years; and the senators chosen at
such election (being the general elec
tion of 1878) by districts designated as
odd numbers, were to hold their office
for two years; and those chosen by even
numbered districts, for the term of four
years. And thereafter— that is, after
sucn election (the election of IS7S)—sen
ators shall be chosen for four years, ex
cept there shall be an entire new elec
tion of senators at the election of rep
resentatives next succeeding each new
It is difficult to see how but one con
struction can be placed upon this lan
guage, .There are but two limitations
placed upon a four years term of state
senators; one is that those .chosen by
odd-numbered districts, at the election
of 1878, shall hold for two years; another
is that a new election after an appor
tionment may result in shortening by
two years the terms of all senators; if
the apportionment is made at the first
session 'after the election of senators.
The first is a positive limitation. The
other is a possible limitation, which may
apply after the election. As. to the elec
tion itself and term for which they are
to be elected, tlie language of the sec
tion is too plain to admit of any ques
tion. After providing for the election
of IS7S, it is provided: "And thereafter
senators shall be chosen for four years,"
except • • •
Jt may be urged that this section pro
vided that as to the election of 1878, one
half should hold office for tour years
and one- half for two years, thus provid
ing for one-half the senate going out of
office every two yearn, and that it was
desirable that this order 'should be
maintained. Whatever may be said as
to the wisdom of such policy, we are
obliged to interpret the law as we find
it; for, where a law is plain and unam
biguous, we must assume that that was
intended which the words used clearly
1 have the honor, therefore, to advise
you that, in my opinion, all the senators
elected in 1890 were elected for the
term of four years.

HANKY'S WILD TALK.
The Ex-Policeman Has Been Very
Krratic for Some Time.
The sensational statement made by
ex-Officer Haney in yesterday's Gr, obe
attracted considerable attention yester
day. A prominent citizen, who has
known Haney for several -ysars, desired
10 say through the columns of the
Globe that "the public should take but
little stock in the rambling remarks of
the ex-policeman. His own tongue has
been his worst enemy, and he is con
stantly talking of matters, of which he
knows nothing. He has had the swell
head, and has been an objectionable
officer in many respects. Complaints
have been made against him for several
years past, and Mayor Smith was on the
point of removing him a number of
times. He would have lost his head
long ago. but for the earnest appeals of
his friends." '

Capt. Ed Bean, leaves this aftasnoon
for the much heralded trip to theJiYel
lowstone park. : Those who suppose
that the tour of the park will be' a pleas

of hard work and fatiguing marches,
and will, in every, respect, be similar
to a march made in active warfare,
barring the presence of the enemy. The
members of the company have been, in
active training ' for "the lons daily
marches they, will be called upon to
make, and they will start out i n. the
best of health, hardy and well-knit. ■
The uniforms will consist of the fa
tigue dress. leggings, hat, broad shoes,
woolen stockings and woolen shirt, and
each man will be equipped with knap
sack, haversack, canteen, meat ration
can, tin cup, knife and fork and rifle,
the estimated weight of each man's
equipment being twenty-one pounds.
Two four-horse wagons and six led
horses will accompany the expedition,
and on the Wagons the tents, woolen
and rubber blankets and rations will be
carried. A buggy team for the official

the outfit, and. the - newspaper
men- who will also go along
at the invitation of Capt. Bean, will
have to "hoof it" like the. rest or the
boys. Strict military rule will be main
tained, and when the camp .is pitched
each night, even the mosquitoes will
have to give the pass word before being
allowed to enter the camp precincts by
the sentries. The boys will surely sing
"Camping on the cold, cold ground," for
there. will be no. such luxuries as mat
tresses or feather beds allowed. The
soft turf prepared by nature will form
the soldier's couch each night, and rub
ber blankets will be spread to keep out
the dampness, and two woolen blankets
tor each man to keep them warm. :: .
The company will parade this after
noon at the armory,; and leave there at
3:45 for the union depot. The line of
march will be led by a platoon of police,
mounted and foot, and, to the strains of
the regimental band, the soldier boys
will step out. bravely, while their ad

cheer. The march to the depot will be

Stephen Webber's Claim to a Lease
'..':.". : . ..of Druids' Property.
. j Injunction proceedings were com
menced yesterday in the district court
by Stephen B. Webber against the
Druids Land and Improvement Compa
ny and the Ancient Order of Druids,
Minnesota Grove No. 1. The litigation
arises out of the "transfer of the trian
gular lot which faces the market house,
which was leased ; in 1832 to J. D. Rama
ley by the order of Druids, In. 1835 the
property was .assigned by Ranialey to
Charles Geist, who in turn conveyed the
lease to Sarah,: B. Rauialey. A
; brick foundation was -put "in for
. a -•..- six-story building, • and - soon
. after . the ; " order • . of : Druids - sold
the property to the laud and improve
ment company. Sarah Ritmaley was ac
cepted as the tenant by the land com
pany, and early in the present year the
lease was- again transferred by" the Ra
maleys to the plaintiff, Webber. He
erected a building at a cost of $17,001),
and when lfe offered the quarterly rent
, to the com puny and asked for a new
lease,. they refused to recognize him as
the legal tenant, and alleged that the
original lease with Ramaley was null
and void, as certain assessments were
left unpaid. As the land- company
threatened to bring a suit to eject the
plaintiff from the property, lie asks the
court to define his right to the property
and also prays that an injunction may

Dr. Clark Doesn't Want to Run as
■-'■■ a Republican Candidate. . ' : -;
Dr. T. C. Clark, of 'this city, who is
mentioned as .a . possible candidate for
congress on the Republican side of the
fence, stated yesterday to a Globe re
porter that he had given no one author
ity to use his name in' that connection,
and that he is not in the field for polit

nomination for congressman if it were
tendered him on a silver platter. Dr.
Clark has a large practice in this city,
which he would not leave to represent

Col. Clarke Chambers, state agent for

leading upright lives. He has secured
positions for several ex-convicts who
have, not shown up after tneir dis
cbarge. Mr. Chambers finds the great
est difficulty in .tiding them over from
the time of their discharge until they
begin work. Many of them leave the
prison with the best intention of becom
ing reputable citizens, but they meet
former companions who induce them to
drink, and they are soon back in their

of their future prospects. .

Workingmen Asked to Refuse
to Handle Stuff Made by
A Committee of Strikers Is
sues a Regular Appeal to
Silly Canard Afloat That Frick
Is About to Tender His
Sharp Lookout forAaronstam
by Both Police and
PittSOTTRg, Pa., Aug. 12.— The latest
move of the Anialgatiratetl association is
an attempt ta get the iron establish
ments of Pittsburg and elsewhere to re
tuse materials tbat come from the Car
negie mills. A circular headed "Ap
peal to Workingmen" is now in the
course of distribution. It reads thus:
Yon are requested not to work up the ma
terials that may be shipped from the works
of the Carnegie Steel company durlug the
present strike By so doing you will help us
gain a victory in our present s,tnii;jle for
organization. Committee of Stkikeks.
The Pittsburg linns will be first sup
plied with the circulars, and then atten
tion will be turned toother manufactur
ers. A sensational rumor got out this
morning, and rapidly gained credence
in many quarters, that 11. C. Flick had
resigned the chairmanship of the Car
negie Steel company. When informed,
of the rumor, Mr. Frick promptly denied
it. He said the story was wild and had
no foundation. The calkers and car
penters at Church boat yards, Hazel
wood, struck today . against handling
iron girders manufactured at Carnegie's
nulls. A rumor has been going around
for two days ' that the Duquesne men
are dissatisfied and are coming out
again. The story cannot be confirmed.
Important developments are looked tor
at the Union mills within the next
twenty-four hours, but just what the
movement will be is not known. The
strikers have called all the meji back
from their vacations, and a general
meeting will De held tonight or tomor
row. Some say the strikers are getting
ready to return to work at the com
pany's terms, but this is indignantly
denied. . Some dissatisfaction exists
among the finishers oJ; the Amalgamated
association over the 10 per cent reduc
tion agreed to by the scale committee;
but no one credits the report that the
finishers will refuse to indorse the com
mittee's action. - '"^^^Jllff^ifltrlUjlihTtSKß

A Sharp Lookout Being Kept for
Pittsbukg, Pa., Aug, 12.— The report
that Chairman prick's life may again be
in danger from the machinations of the
anarchists seems to be credited to some
extent by Mr. Frick as well as by the
Carnegie officials and the police'author
ities. The force of detectives is more
than doubled at the offices of the com
pany on T Fifth : avenue, and every one
visiting there, unless well known to the
officers on duty, is the subject of strict
and searching scrutiny, and has to run
the gauntlet of interested eyes. . Secre
tary Lovejoy, in commenting on the re
port, said today:3=3SßesS
"We have no direct or special infor
mation in regard to this man Aaronstam
or his mission to attempt the life of Mr.
Frick. While there may be some truth
in the report I know it is not troubling
Mr. Frick to any extent; neither does it.
in any way interfere in the conduct of
his business or personal mode of living.
Of course.it is only common prudence
to take some few precautions, and even
these I don't believe would be taken if
Mr. Frick consulted his own wishes
solely. Personally, Ido not think there
is any danger whatever of any further
attempts being made against Mr. Frick,
but, as I said before, prudence dictates
that some precautions should De taken.' |
Superintendent of Police O'Mara, of
this city, denied that the depart
ment had been notified of Aaronstam
coming to this city. He had received no
word from New York and did not have
a description of him, and, in fact, knew
of no such man. He said the guard
furnisned by the department at H. C.
Frick's house at Homewood has been
taken away at Mr. Frick's request, and
no fears were entertained for his safety.
On the other hand, Supt. Muth. of the
Allegheny police department, stated to
day that he received information
Wednesday that Aaronstam was mak
ing plans to come ; here to assassinate
Mr. Frick. At the same time he was
furnished with an accurate, detailed de
scription of the anarchist, ho complete
was this description that it would have
enabled him to apprehend Aaronstam"

• NO PRESENT BOYCOTT,
Bat One May Be Ordered at a
. Pittsbukg, Pa., Aug. 12.— execu
tive board of the American Federation
of Labor met here todaj\ and, after an
all day's session, decided that no boy
cott would be placed . upon the Car
negie products at present. The rea
sons tor this, according to an official
statement given out tonight, says
the .council is of the opinion
that the firm is not turning out enough
material or of a quality to justify a boy
cott. This action, the statement says,
was decided upon after a thorough re
view of the . situation and consultation
with the Amalgamated association offi
cials. Should it be necessary in the
future to order a boycott, however, the
board says it will not hesitate to do so,
notwithstanding the threats of the rirm
to use the conspiracy laws. The board's
action, it says, doej ; not prevent all
sympathizers from refusing all products
or the company or sending financial
aid to the locked-out men.' A circular is
being prepared and will be issued to
morrow calling for funds to aid the
strikers. A mass meeting will be held
at Homestead • tomorrow afternoon,
which will be addressed by the members
of the executive board. Those in at
tendance at the meeting were Presi- i
