Christopher Columbus does not stand
well in Minneapolis. Whether the dis
regard tor his name is clue to the ab
sence of anything to prove that he
mentioned Minneapolis, when lie
lan. led on San Salvador, or whether it
is due to racial prejudice is not cer
tain; but the fact remains that
Minneapolis does not care very much
for Christopher. lie was something of
it "swell guv" in his day in Spain, but
lie never organized a harvest festival,
made speeches on Minneapolis' fitness
for caring for a national convention,
platted a new addition to the city, worked
for the recognition of Minneapolis as
the head of navigation or belonged to
the board of trade or the Business
Men's union. Therefore, it is not
Btransre that Minneapolis feels some
what inclined to "pass him up." Yes
terday wast the day set by govern
mental proclamation for the observance
of the 400 th anniversary of the date
when the Indians were forced to ac
knowledge that they had been dis
covered and that Columbus was the
man who had discovered them. In spite
of ail this, ami in spite of the fact
that all the large cities made some
attempt to recognize the day as an
eventful holiday, Minneapolis made
none, except in a sporadic sort of way.
The school children, who are just now
deep in the mysteries of American his
tory, and who are prone, in ilieir child
ish igno auce, to consider that Colum
bus was a great man. did honor
to the name of the Genoese
sailor who blazed the path through a
wilderness of ignorance that made pos
sible the creation of this great nation.
Representatives of two nationalities, in
v city where one hears more derogatory
remarks about foreign-born citizens than
any other city in the country, probably,
did do something in honor of Columbus
and did, thereby, put to . shame the
boastful American who delitrhts in
nothing so much as to elevate his coat
tails, swell out his chest and prate
about the glories of his native
land. Of public demonstration on
the part of Minneapolis, as a city,
There as not a sign yesterday. A few
of the business houses closed "for a part
of the day. The postoffice was closed in
the afternoon, because Minneapolis has
nothing to do with its management.
The societies of the Germans
and the Italians made a pub
lic showing. Otherwise nothing
occurred in Minneapolis yesterday to
indicate that the day meant anything.
The few Italians that live in .Minneap
olis paraded the streets in the morning
and then went to St. Paul to reinforce !
their brothers in that city in the proper i
commemoration of one of the momen
tous events of history. They were
stimulated by national pride.
The Germans of Minneapolis, with no
element of national or personal pride
entering into the question, for they had
nothing to do with Columbus or Colum
bus with them, showed that, they ap
preciated the historical significance and
importance of the day by making of it a
holiday. All honor to the Germans for
what I hey did. And their honor, in this
instance, is the shame of the boastful
IN THE SCHOOLS.
Children Do Honor to Columbus'
In almost all cases the programmes for the
celebration of Hie day in the public schools
were followed. The children did it
themselves alone, and did it well.
The G. A. R. veterans, ■who were
to tcke biich 11 prominent part iv the patri
otic exercises, failed to t-how up at more
than a few schools, having, evidently, found
something more interesting to do in Hie way
of political campaigning. The schools all
followed the same programme. It is sale to

They Observe the Day in Very
The Germans celebrated ihe dny in the aft
ernoon and evening. Aside from the Italian?,
the Germans were the only foreign-bred peo
ple who outwardly showed their loyalty and
enthusiasm. In fact, the Germans did
what the Americans of this city did
not do— public y demonstrated their
gratefulness to the man who discovered the
country they live in. The parade was held
in the afternoon, the march beginning at 3
O'clock. There were nearly 1.(00 Germans in
line, and the shine of tin honest Teutonic
faces gave a brighter luster to the already
faily tinted streets. The Germans
ilied two birds with one stone
by thus celebrating. They did honor
to the memory of Columbus and honor
to the memory of the day the first colony of
Germans landed in America at Geiniantown.
The day this colony landed was Oct. f>, and
that is the day generally observed. But in
order that the celebration might Le the more
Kiand and enthusiastic, the observance of
German day was postponed until yesterday.
in Mr. Lawrence's Happy Speech.
Mr. Lawrence was i itroduced amid a
round of enthusiastic applause. He
made a brief and happy speech, with
"Columbus" as the touchstone. Among
oilier thine;?, he said:
"1 have been called upon to speak
this evening, and 1 assure you never
was man so proud to respond as I am
now. When an American citizen on
such a memorable occasion is called
upon to make'a lew remarks, lie sym
pathizes with Columbus when they
wanted him to turn back before reach
ing America's shore. But there is con-
Eolation in the thought that the next
occasion is 400 years away. Today there

effect is inspiring and elevating. No
ivliere is there a more superb expression
uf natiiotistu or sympathy for liberty,
because thousands of foreigners both
sympathize and join hands with us. No
word of mine can add interest to the
great act of faith and coiirag'e which—
sii.c Christ — stands unparalleled In im
portance and usefulness. By its means
the humaq race is working out a destiny
not possible in the old world.
"When in August Columbus left
Palos, and Queen Isabella and Ferdi
nand, with the populace, saw his ship
sail away, little did they think the voy
age of the brave navigator was to cre
ate an epoch in civilization, a dividing
line in progress. It is significant that
it was through a woman's will and pur
pose that Columbus was placed m a way
of making his discovery. It is signifi
cant that Isabella's act was an omen of
woman's position in the new world
Mr. Lawrence spoke of the wonder
ful resources of the country.which from
a wilderness when Columbus found it
had developed into a laud peopled by
00.000.000 human beings. They are
God's chosen people. Those who
dreamed of wealth found it here; those
who dreamed of power found it here,
and those who sighed for liberty found
themselves secure and free.
"No man's story is sodramatic as that
of Columbus." said Mr. Lawrence in
closing. "The son of a weaver, he was
sailor, mapmaker, adventurer, mendi
cant and suppliant. As these he was
ridiculed. As discoverer, the greatest
of the universe, ireglected and dead at
Vallodolid. His monument is a conti
nent. But disappointed, downtrodden
and dying neglected, he was in charac
ter nobie and superb."
"German day 7 ' was touched upon at
length in the second part of Mr. Law
rence's remarks. Said he: "Today we
come together to celebrate what the
Germans did and are doing for America.
The love in the German heart for native
country is deep-seated, and. notwith
standing the fact that America demands
patriotism on the part of her adopted
citizens, she does not require forgetful
ness of native land, but love and fealty
to the American government. The
Germans have always been among
the foremost in the protection
of the stars and stripes. In the
war of the Revolution, the German sol
diers fought with equal daring and skill
by the side of the American hero. Ger
many produced for the American bat
tlefield many gallant soldiers, among
whom we find Gens. Nicholas, Ilerk
iiuer, De Kalb. and many others. Gen.
Yon bteuben did great work as organ
izer. Washington's dearest friend almost
was Gen. Muehlenberg, who went from
the pulpit to the army. In the subse
quent wars in which the nation was
plunged the German-American soldiers
vied with each other in the protection of
the land of their adoption.
"Not only on the battlefield have the
Germans distinguished themselves, but
in all the walks of life in America. Her
artisans nre among the most skilled, her
scientists, who have sought the friendly
shores of the new world, have
unraveled many mysteries. The
German teachers, engineers and phy
sicians have accomplished tasks .ejjuul
to those of any nation. The skill of the
German-Americans is seen in the East
liv«*r and Niagara bridires and in many
other feats of modern engineering.
From the Germans the American cets
much of his love tor music, the sublime
poetry of the soul.
"From the Germans we learned many
lessons in love of personal liberty, love
of domestic and home life, fondness for
athletics and military training. One
fifth of the population of America is of
German descent, but we are one nation.
The sun that rose 400 years ago on a
wilderness rises today on a continent
of enlightened republics, with civil lib
erty and equality for a corner stone,
standing together for individual and
collective independence. When has the
world before offered such a hope.a pros
pect, a promise? We live as one family
in a great era, a great country. Let us
be filled with a fresh pride, infused
with a determination to lend our ener
gies for common good and glory."
After the si>eeches the hall was cleared of
all the chairs, and the orchestra struck up a
time, which inaugurated a very successful
ball. Several hundred couples participated.

Anton Erpeldintr presented himself
with a passport over ttie river Styx yes
terday afternoon, and took the voyage
with a curse upon his lips. Anton Er
pelding was a German, fifty-one years
of age, and his place of residence was at
1901 Third street northeast. About 5:30
he placed a 3S-caliber revolver to his
right temple, believing when he did so,
that he had killed a police officer, and
pulled the trigger. Erpeldinir. accord
ing to the neighbors, was a drunkard and
ne'er-do-well. About two years ago he
married a widow of the same age as
himself. It was ft love match. Had it
not been a love match Erpelding would
never have consented to have taken a
brood of seven children at the same
time be took the widow. He was a
laborer ami was employed at the Backus
lumber mill. He had saved up consid
erable money, however, and purchased
the two-story house wherein the tragedy
of yesterday occurred.
About two months atro Erpelding
came to the conclusion he could not
stand the seven children brought to him
by the widow when he wed her. lie
had become the father of one of his
own. and he saw the seven eating up
his child's heritage. So lie quarreled
with his wife, and the brood of seven
children took sides with their mother.
He was driven out of the house, so
the neighbors say— and his trunk kicked
after him. When he left the premises
Erpeidiue swore that he would be re
venged, and that in a short time fie
would return and shoot his wife and
child. Yesterday afternoon about 3
o'clock he came to the house. He forced
Ins way into the room where his wife
sat with her child, and demanded to see
her alone in the bedroom.
Mrs. Erpelding was tearful he might
put his threats of revenge into execu
tion and refused to go with him. Her
husband was drunk and when he took
her child from her arms and went in to
the bedroom with it, she did not dare to
follow him. Once she went to the door
and asked him for God's sake to give
her back her child. Erpelding's reply
was to open the door and hold a
revolver to the child's head
and threaten to kill it if
she did not go away. Mrs. Erpelding
rushed out of the house and screamed
lor help. Her child was dead, she said,
for hhe was sure her husband had killed
it. Patrolman (Jhickeroski, who was on
his beat in the vicinity, was notified,
and he repaired to the house. He went
into the bedroom, where Erpelding was
sitting with the child in his lap. The
room was darkened by heavy curtains,
and when the officer opened the
door iie could see nothing. He
lier.nl the voice of the inmate, however,
and the voice told him to eet out as
quickly as possible, for he was about to
shoot. Chickeroski didn't want to be
shot, so he called for the patrol wagon
from the North station. The patrol
came, and with it was Officer Harry
Mochelle. The two went into the house,
and Mochelle concluded to enter the bed
room and bring Erpelding out.
Like Ciiickeroski. he opened the <foor,
and was saluterl with:
"Get out of here, d— n you."
Then two shots were tired from the
pitchy darkness of the room. One of
them landed in the cassmeut of the
door and the ulher landed somewhere
in the officer, where he did not know at
the time. Mochelle closed the door hur
riedly and remarked tt> Chickeroski that
he believed he was shot. The two
stepped on the front porch, when a third
shot rang out. Erpelding had evidently
been listening at the door, and when he
beard the officer say he was shot, con
cluded lie had killed him, and so to
avoid the consequences killed himself.
Erpelding's aim had been fatal. The
bullet entered the right temple, and
spattered the wall with his brains. The
officers found him lyins on the floor
near the bed, and a few moments after
they had dragged him to the adjoining
room he gasped and died.
MoiMielle then bethought himself of
looking out for his own wound, lie
could find none, for the buliet had been
stopped in its career in an almost mirac
ulous manner. It had passed through
the officers coat iv the right
side and been stopped by a small
paper note book carried in the
upper pocket of the vest. There is a
black and blue spot the size of a silver
dollar on the officer's side, where the
force of the bullet had bruised the skin.
Mochelle's escape from death smacked
of the providential. He found the bat
tered bullet several hours after the
occurrence under the lining of his coat.
Coroner Byrnes was notified of tie
tragedy. After examine the body I.c
turned it over to the St. Anthony Be
nevolent .society, of which Erpehlii g
had been a member. Mrs. Erpehlii g
was found with her brood of eigl t
at the house of a neighbor, whith
er she had gone to recover from the
shock attending*the terrible affair. She
said her husband had always treated
her harshly, and for the past two
months she had been in constant terror.
He had often threatened to shoot her,
ami, had not Providence ordained that
that he was to die first, she was sure her
blood y corpse would have been found

New York. Oct. 21.— Gen. Daniel E.

which was construed to mean he would
bolt the Democratic nominations and
support Harrison. He said in part:
"I said to my soldiers at Washington :

'•That is what I said," continued the
speaker. "Harrison was a brave sol
dier, for I saw him lead his men on to
victory at Kesaca. and I say it now; and
I asked my men to direct their secretary ,
and chairman to co up to the White ,

A PARTIAL* ACTION.
Mrs. Harrison Kallies From the
Period, of Kxtreme Prostration.
Washington', Oct. 21.— Another par
tial reaction is apparent in Mrs. Harri
son's condition, and her great vitality,
which has been a characteristic of her
illness, has again asserted itself and en
abled her to rally from the extreme
prostration of last night. This even
ing her physician reports her as some
what stronger, with the prospects of
passing a restful and quiet night. This
information the doctor conveyed to a
reporter who saw him after he had
made his last call for the day, and he
then said that he did not expect to visit
the White house again before morning.
While unable to say at what hour
Mrs. Harrison's condition might take
another unfavorable turn, thu doctor
did not believe there was any danger of
such a change tonight. The wakeful
and nervous condition of the patient
during the hours of last night had
brought on extreme exhaustion, and it
was probably due to this lact that she
today. This, coupled with the fact that;
she look her usual amount of nourish
ment, is the cause of the improved con
dition of the patient.
Mrs. Harrison's cough is giving her
much trouble and produces peiiodsof
great weakness, especially when ;it
comes on in paroxysms. The paroxysms
are liable to occur at any time, and the
results are always looked forward to
with dread. The violent exertion there- \
from sometimes prevents the retention
of nourishment upon the stomach. 7A3 !
Combined with the disease which is
gradually sapping her life away is the
aftermath of nervous prostration, fur
ther complicated by the constant dan
ger of a gathering of watery matter in
the chest cavity. If this complication
occurs again, death might ensue in a
very few hours.
The improvement in Mrs. Harrison's
condition was noted in the more hope
ful air about the White house this aft
ernoon and evening. The president
took a brief respite, walking about the
grounds south of the White house, and
Mr. and Mrs. McKee went out for a
short walk later in the evening.
Washington. Oct.' 22.— At 12:30 Mrs.
Harrison was sleeping quietly.
At 1:05 a. in. Mrs. Harrison was still
resting well, and there was no material
change in her condition.
. AIDING THE KICKERS.
Republicans Said to Be Backing
the New York County Dcmou-
Ni:w York, Oct. 21.— At the Demo
cratic headquarters the charge is made
that Republicans are backing the
dounty Democracy in their tight against
Tammany Hall in this county. It is
said that the hope is that the third
ticket will help the national ticket.
Chairman Ilackett, of the Republicau
committee, denied that the Republicans
were helping the counties". Chairman
Brookfieid, of the Republican county
committee, said he supposed that the
Republicans would have to stand any
charge brought against them by the
Democrats. To a reporter he said :
"Why shouldn't we back the coun
ties? isn't it good policy? If they can
hurt the regular Democratic organiza
tion it helps us that much, doesn't it?"
Mr. Brooklield wouid not discuss the
matter in detail.
Among the callers at Republican
headquarters today was Banker Joseph
Solomon. He had a long chat with Jo
seph Mauley- Mr. Mauley subsequently
informed a reporter that Matthew Quay,
the Republican senator from Pennsyl
vania, was detained in Philadelphia 'by
sickness, and thatiie expected to hear
from him this afternoon as to when he
would come to New York.
