A SILVER WEDDING.
Pleasant Social Affair on the Bluff
Last Monday. *
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. George, of Day
•~ ton's bluff, celebrated their silver wed
. ding last Monday evening by holding a
J reception for their many friends in the
• hall corner Bates avenue and Third
street. About one hundred responded;
to invitations sent out, and a most en
joyable evening was spent by all. The
'happy couple were assisted in the prep
arations by Mrs. Burke. Mrs. Sharp,
Mrs. Andrews and Mrs. Hamilton, who
had the hall tastefully decorated with
autum leaves, golden rod and ferns.
< Under a canopy of flowers looking as
, happy and joyous as they did twenty
live years ago, stood Mr. and Mrs. A. E.
George to receive congratulations of
their friends, assisted by Mrs. EL A.
Hirst and Mrs. Simpson Burke. De
lightful music was furnished by Frank
11. George and Harry E. George on the
violin, accompanied by Frank Kreicer
on the piano. Mrs. Sharp sang in her
. usual line style the appropriate song
"When You" and I Were Young."
Miss Dora Simpson gave one of her in
imitable recitations that delighted
\l everybody, and Mrs. Simpson Burke
made one of her impromptu and funny
speeches. It wound up with a bur
lesque marriage ceremony and pre
sented the bride. with all the beautiful
presents that were bestowed upon them
that evening, some of which were
unique and artistic, and all were useful
and valuable. Among those present

Twist of a Story That Seemed to
Reflect on Him.
Young Murray claims that the Ander
son story in yesterday's Globe does
him an injustice. He says that the
story places him in the light of ' acting
■ cowardly, which is not the fact. He
says that he did not run through the
park yelling — fact did not go through
at all, but went clown Walnut street to
his home. The two men were on the
opposite side of the street, and he did
not think they were following him until
just as he reached home. Then he got
his revolver and stood on the porch, but
the men went on to the park and he
heard nothing more until they tackled
Anderson and the latter yelled lustily.
He admits standing on the steps when
one of the men - ; walked past after the
row, but did not think of him as r one of.
the robbers until some time afterwards,
as the man walked so "slowly and delib
erately, It was not until he talked with
' Anderson and the policeman that it oc
curred to him that the fellow he saw
was one of the would-be robbers.

The Desperado Case Dwindles to
a Plain Drunk.
The great fake of the Pioneer Press
last Thursday morning fell through
itself yesterday in the municipal court,
as everybody knew it would. The Pio
neer Press had a terrible story of the
arrest of a noted desperado who show
ered bullets all over town, one of which
•went through Detective Werriek's hat
as l>e was trying to arrest the great
crook. Charles Graham. The fact was
that Werrick was nowhere in that vicin
ity and knew nothing of the arrest,
•which was made by Patrolman Perro.
The latter charged Graham with trying
to pick James Murray's pockets, but
this charge • proved to have" no founda
tion, for Murray said that he and Gra
ham were "pards," and the latter knew
that he had no money. But it wouid
not do for the police to get shown up in
the light of arresting a man without
cause, just to make a showing, and so
Graham was sworn into the works for
ninety days for disorderly conduct.
Murray was fined $25 for his drunk, and
Df course could not pay.

And Leaves the Citizens' Commit
tee Up a Tree.
The citizens' committee finds itself in
a dilemma. It seems to be without
power or even influence, and worse than
all, if reports are true, it is not agreed
among itself. Its nominees decline with
thanks, unless they are candidates of
one ot the political parties. M. F. Kain
has declined to accept its nomination
for auditor, and A. P. Croonquist has
declined to accept its nomination for
treasurer. Apparently with the hope
of regaining some of its lost
prestige the committee Friday even
ing nominated William McManagel for
auditor in the place of Kain. McMana
gal is supposed to be very popular with
the labor element, and the committee
seems to have placed him in the field
with the hope of defeating the Demo
cratic nominee. But it is intimated Mr.
McManagal will not accept tne favor,
and will so indicate to the committee.
No nomination for treasurer in place of
Croonquist was made, as, it is said,
they feared their nomination might
draw from Mr. Nelson, the Democratic
nominee. The only nominee, who was
that of the committee alone, who has
not withdrawn is M. J. Bell for register
of deeds; and even Mr. Bell would
withdraw if he thought it worth the
while to do so. He simply ignores the
matter. However, Chairman Langford
proposes to appoint a campaign com
mittee, but lays the matter of doing so
over indefinitely. Circulars mentioning
its various candidates are being sent
about by the committee with reasons
why they should be supported.

Worrying Over the Two Jonahs
on the Ticket.
The executive committee of the He
publican county committee held a long
executive session yesterday afternoon,
and a large number of Republicans
stood around on the outside talking in
undertones in a mysterious way. One
of the most prominent ones was asked
if the executive committee were discuss
ing the matter of putting Howard off
the ticket, and he replied that he did
not know. Since the gentleman was in
a position to know it is considered
fair to presume that they were
doing just about that thing.
The gentleman finally remarked
that Howard could not be put
off the ticket without his consent. It is
quite evident that the Republicans are
considerably worried over the matter,
and the majority of them would put
Howard off if they knew how to do it.
Some of them make no secret of their
reeling that Howard is likely to swamp
the entire ticket. Several of them
would liKe to put Zollinan off as well,
and they say quite frankly that they do
not consider him capable of filling the
position of county attorney. A few of
them go so far as to say that they will
not vote for him. as they consider that
his election would be a public calamity.
He would not be able to procure the
conviction of any criminal who was
defended by a lawyer of any ability.
By a Vote the Committee Keeps
The Republican county committee
held a three hours' executive session
last evening. The matter of retiring
Tom Howard from the ticket caused
some lively discussion. The majority
maintained that it was an unwise policy
at this late date to attempt such a thing,
but the minority urged with consider
able heat that he would swamp the en
tire ticket. The majority of course pre
vailed, and Mr. Howard remains on the
ticket to swamp it. Whether Mr. How
ard is on or off the ticket it is
most certainly swamped. There is
no chance for it to win.
Even if the Republicans had votes
enough to carry it through they could
not win in their divided and contentious
condition. But " they haven't votes
enough. Mr. Howard last evening ad
mitted to a Globk representative that
lie was the cause of trouble in the com
mittee. He said that he had an enemy
in M. J. Bell, and that the friends of
Mr. Bell were trying to "do" him with
the hope of getting Bell on the ticket in
The meeting of the committee being
executive, little of the proceedings
could be learned, but a member ad
mitted that the Howard matter had oc
cupied its attention to a considerable
extent. Ho said, however, that other
tilings were transacted, among which
was the laying of a deep plot to capture
the county from the Democrats. He
would not, of course, reveal the scheme.

LOST TO THEM FOREVER
One by One Scandinavians Are
Deserting the Republican
Frantic Efforts or Managers to
Recall Them Without
The Scandinavians are leaving the
Republican party. This fact has gone
beyoud ,-mere guess work. The : evi
dences are apparent on every hand. To
save and bring them back into line the
Republicans have put forth their utmost
means in this campaign. Money has
proven of no avail, and, in the very face
of the most liberal applications of this
whilom potent influence, the national
ity has gone from the party almost by
communities. Ignatius Donnelly claims
he has caused the break, and that they
are flocking to him; but this is
not alogether true. ' For some
years back the Scandinavians
have been growing weary of Repub
canism. and they have been going over
to the Democratic party a few at a time;
and while these few were going over
many more were growing lukewarm
and voted the Republican ticket only
from force of habit. For a long time
back the bulk of the Norwegians in the
cities have been pronounced Democrats;
but the Swedes have been slower to
give up their early faith. Now the
Swedes have also yielded to the in
fluence of their better judgment. Mr.
Donnelly will undoubtedly get a portion
of them, but it is not he who has turned
them, and the Democratic party will
get enough ot them to carry it on to vic
tory in Minnesota.
Among the measures put forth by the
Republicans to stay the tide was the
bringing into the state of celebrated
Swedish orators. John Enander, who
has a- world-wide fame as a Swedish
stump orator, in fact he is as famous in
that tongue as In&ersoll in the .English,
was hired at a large salary to make a
thorough canvass of the state. Among
the cities in which he was billed and ad
vertised extensively to speak were Min
neapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, Winona and
even Red Wing, that old stronghold of
Swedish Republicanism. It was natur
ally expected that the Swedish popula
tion would flock to hear him at every
•point for miles aiound; one so famous
could not fail to draw all the old-time
Republicans of the nationality, and also
all who had gone over to the Democrats,
was what they thought. But look at
the .result. At Minneapolis, that city
which has the largest Swedish popula
tion of any in the Northwest, he spoke
to an audience of less than 200. At St.
Paul Market hall was hired for him, and
it was expected that it would be filled
so full that there would be an overflow
meeting, and so some lesser lights were
employed to speak to the overflow. But
instead Mr. Enander arose before an
audience of scarcely 300, some of whom
were Americans and there out of
curiosity. The handful of people
looked so lonesome in the great room,
which will accommodate nearly 2,000
people, that Mr. Enander's heart was
broken, and he made a very brief and
tame effort. From St. Paul he went to
Duluth, and there he was greeted by an
audience of about 400. He expected to
speak to an audience in Minneapolis of
10,000, to 8,000 in St. Paul, and to at
least 5,000 in Duluth. These cities are
fair samples of the reception Mr. En
ander received most everywhere he
spoke. In only two places did
his audience come up to any
thing he expected to see. These
were rural points where open
air meetings were held, and the people
took advantage of an opportunity to
have a gala day. The Swedish orator
left Minnesota yesterday discouraged.
He would not admit that his cold recep
tion was due to the departure of the
Swedes from the party, but laid the
failures at the doors of the various com
mittees, charging that they did not
properly advertise his meetings.
The St. Paul and Minneapolis Scandi
navians have gone mostly to the Demo
cratic party, and this is true in most of
the cities. They will vote for Cleveland
and Lawler, and in St. Paul they will
vote for Nelson for treasurer and not

club has received an invitation from the
Democrats of Hastings to attend their celd
bration on Saturday evening, Nov. 5. It wijl
be acted upon at the business meeting next
Tuesday night and will, without doubt, be
accepted. Dakota county is bound to poll a

FOOTPADS FREE AS AIR.

Ability to Ter
Ed Stahlman Held Up and
Robbed at His Own
And still they come, and still the de
tectives do not detect. Hold-ups and
burglaries are of nightly occurrence,
and none of the perpetrators are arrest
ed. The force is working hard and
taking care of the minor offend
ers in good, shape, but ; the
higher class crooks are as . free
as the air they breathe. A
citizen walked into the central station
last night and left a list of property
that had been taken from his house a
little while before by porch climbers
'While the family were at dinner. He
stated later that he did . not want any
thing said about the matter, as secresy
is the policy of the detectives and he
desired to let them wort a few days to
see what they can do on the case. " .'
. Then last Wednesday night there was
another case of highway robbery that is
on par with any of the former ones for
boldness. The victim has lived in St.
Paul, off and on, for thirty-two years,
and the men that held him up are, pre
sumably, walking the streets without a
thought of trouble. Edward H. Stahl
man is well known in the city as a gen
eroas and genial good fellow. He runs
a place at 345 Wabasha street,' and lives
with his wife and family at 234 West
Fifth street. Last Wednesday night he
was going home as' usual and had:
reached a point but a few rods from his
own door when a big gun was shoved
into his face and a rough voice de
manded his money. He had some thirty
odd dollars in his clothes and a gun in
his . overcoat pocket. ;. His hand was
0n ... the ; ; gun, : -and his - first
thought was to take a snap shot
at the fellow. But he was dead-cold
sober, and the next thought was to take
no chances, for wife and babies were
depending upon him, and right behind
the man with the gun was a second man
with another gun. Then just across thte
street was a third man. It is very prob
able that had Ed been "keyed up" a
little he would have taken a shot for
luck, but, as . it was, he thought
the. odds were ■ too great for.
a man of family .^ and said:
"Boys, you are three to one and you can
have all I've got."
'•Well, pass out your dough," replied
the spokesman. Ed passed over his roll, .
saying: "There it is— there anything
else you want?"
"No, we don't want nuffin but de
dough, and you better git in de house."
Ed went into his house and told none
of his friends for two or three days of
the affair, for fear it would get into the
papers, and this he does not want. He
says, however, that he has no idea who
it was that held him up. but would will
ingly give another $30 to find out, as he
thinks he might be able to get even.
