The Twin City Methodist Social union
was entertained last evening at Hani
line university. Pis of proverbial re
pute and only lacks the pen of genius to
give it epigrammatic form that Metho
dist ministers are the jolliest crowd on
earth, and the disciples of Epicurus be
long to the common herd beside the fol
lowers of John Wesley, when it comes
to being a colnnoisseur in matters of
the table. The gathering at Hamline
last night fully sustained the reputation
of the sect in these lines. The social
side of the affair, where jest and jollity
prevailed, was a reception held in the
drawing room of the ladies' hall, from
5 o'clock till 0. All the rooms on.
the lower floor were thrown open to the
guests, who numbered nearly two hun
dred. The officers of the association
were the reception committee: Presi

The Literary Part
of the evening was given in the chapel
at 8 o'clock. It was opened by the 11.
U. quartette with a song "Slowly Wan
dering Down." It was sung with their
usual' delicate shading, fine phrasing
and clearness of ensemble, and the
quartette responded to the hearty en
core with a characteristic glee song.
The invocation was made by Bey. F.
13. Cowgill, alter which Miss Maud
Kelly, of Minneapolis, sang "It Came
With the Merry May, Love." Miss
Kelly has a pure soprano voice, which,
although lacking in strength, is one of
promise. Her phrasing is weak, per
haps due to the nervousness of an inex
perienced singer, but the delicate ex
pression of which the song is capable
was finely brought out, and the
voice is very even in its registers.
lion. A. C. Hickman, of Merriam
Fork, a trustee of the university, was
then introduced to the audience, and |
spoke on "The Christianized Spirit and j
Attitude of the Law Toward the Crim- i
inal Classes." He spoke of the lex j
talionis, or like for like, truly a part of |
the law given by Moses: but the process
of civilization has con fined the exercise
of it within reduced limits, Punishment
in some form has been conceded neces
sary, and the problem is how? Women
were severely punished for scolding
and the like, but penalty fcr men for
the same crime is unrecorded.
Keen as is the capability for physical
suffering, it was found that the menial
stress was greater, so public punish
ment was devised as the whipping stock
and branding for life. But the system
failed. Crime and criminals increased.
They must of necessity. In dealing
with the criminal, it must be remem
bered that any punishment which de
grades the sufferer degrades the pun
isher, the spectator, the nation.
An eminent jurist once divided the
race into tliose that had and those that
had not been hanged. But even death
lost its terror, and tortures, slow and
terrible, were added. All this was done
for justice. Men cannot be tortured
into goodness. The only true solution
of the problem is in the teachings of
him who spoke as
Never S-nn spoke.
Heredity, environment and atmos
phere are strong causes in the develop
ment of crime. Why not hospitals for

Thomas Tayler Drill, the director of
the Hennepin Avenue M. E. church
choir, favored the audience with one of
his rotund bass solos, "The Christ
Child's Gift." As an encore he gave
"A Little While."
"The Business Man's Obligation to
the Christian Church" was the topic
given lion. J. T. Wyman. Mr. Wyman
was one of the successful candidates for
the legislature, and was in a happy
mood. That he had been persuading
men was shown by the sharp, incisive,
understandable sentences. He said:
"The Methodist church is a business
organization for the propagation of the
gospel, second only to that of the Roman
Catholic church. The business man
may not be dominant, but he is potent
in the chinch, lie is one of the strong
est executive forces. Ihe business man
is not apt to be as spiritual, but he
is just as religious. He has more
charity for other religious organiza
tions. He runs against all sorts of men,
even Unitarians and Universalists. He
finds them just as good as the Metho
dist. They are just as sincere and hon
est. We have just had a political con
flict. The ground is strewn with the
corpses ot the slain, principally

The meeting was closed by another
selection from the quartette, and the
audience adjourned. The date and

mined by the executive committee.

ONE OP THEM NAIIikIL
Robert Jackson Held for the Danz
Robert Jackson was yesterday held to
await the action of the grand jury iv
$1,000 bail, and in default he was sent to
the county jail. Jackson is charged
with entering the candy and cigar
store of Joel Danz on Robert street;'
Wednesday night, and, presenting^ai
revolver, compelling the proprietor to
hand over what money he had. This
amounted to $25.' When arraigned in
the municipal court yesterdaji'he waived
examination, but shortly alter with
drew his action and demanded aan im
mediate hearing. James lilewick, a
boy who clerks for Danz, was then
placed on the witness stand, and,* after
• identifying Jackson, testified that the
latter compelled the witness to deliver
over the money at the point of a re
volver. Jackson was held to the grand
jury in consequence.
Instances in Which Realization of
Opportunities Helped Pol
A Recent Happening and an Old-
Time Incident and Their
What little things may do Is perhaps
very aptly illustrated in the reason as
signed for the election of a certain gen
tleman to the legislature in the recent
contest. Speaking of the matter yester
day, one of the fusion candidates for
presidential elector related an incident
that to him seemed conclusive. The n
of the successful candidate drove to a
certain part of the district; a day or two
before election with a spirited
team of horses, which became
frightened by a train and ran
away. The " young man jumped
from the vehicle and escaped unhurt,
but one of the horses was killed, the
other badly hurt and the rig smashed.
Of course a large part of the inhabit
ants of the place gathered at the scene,
and the lad, with an eye to the business
that brought him there, distributed lo
every man, woman and child a card so
liciting their vote* and influence for his
father. The Democratic candidate had
expected a good majority in the place,
but the election returns showed his op
ponent far enough ahead to decide the
contest in favor of the man whose son
had not neglected his opportunities.
On a par with the above incident is
one related by W. P. Murray, the
Nestor of Ramsey county Democracy,
who points with fervent pride to an in
cident where a few dollars went a long
way. On the eve of election," after a
hot canvass in the early days,
he was out at New Canada, holding a
meeting to convince the voters that
their safety here— and possibly here
after, as Judge Dan Raker would
say— lay in the election of the
Democratic ticket, and especially
in the triumph of their hum
ble orator. In the midst of the meeting
a load of hay which stood in the middle
of the street was discovered on fire and
everybody rushed out. The rack was
tipped off and the wagon saved, but the
hay was completely burned. Murray
had followed his audience to the street,
and the possibilities dawned on him at
"How much was that hay worth?" he
asked the disconsolate farmer.
"1 expected to get "J8 for it."
"All right, here's your money,'? says
Bill, and as he relates himself with

The Auditor-Elect Will Name His
"I see that one of the Republican
papers has already made up my office
force for me," said auditor-elect James
H. Burns, yesterday. "They seem to
take so much interest in it," he con
tinued, "as in the make-up of Cleve
land's cabinet, although 1 very much

HE WAS TOO ELOQUENT,
And Drowned Out His Client in
A peculiar case of a client deserting
an attorney at the last moment occurred
yesterday In Judge Cornish's court, and
the case had to be dismissed after the
jury was impanneled. Otto L. Haese
was the attorney for the plaintiff, and
after a jury had been selected he began
his opening address. Bertha Holaj was
the complainant, and while her attor
ney was making his opening speech, he
painted the character of the defendant
in such vivid colors and set forth the
wrongs of his client so strikingly, that
the girl left the court room in tears, and
could not be induced to return and give
her testimony. The girl was a domestic
in the home of Theodore 11. Durgin,
and damanded $10,000 damages from
him for alleged forcible debauchment.
It is said that an action for bastardy lias

The Double Dial;. 'y Case Is
Again in the .riot
A Rumor Anent the Resignation'
of the City's Excellent
The fall term of the district court con
vened at 10 a. m. yesterday, and after a
preliminary call of the calendar, the
grand jury was sworn and placed in
charge of an officer. L. Sargent, of this
city, was appointed foreman of the jury.
Several, cases were considered yester
.day, and the grand jury will complete
its labors today. There are 281 cases on
the civil calendar, more than 200 of them
being connected with the old linns of
Seymour, Sabin & Co., and the North
western Manufacturing and Car com
pany. It is the desire of those interest
ed in these cases to dispose of them
as soon as possible, but, on mo
tion . of H. .C. True-dale, who
represents a large number of the stock
holders of Seymour, Sabin & Co., none
of them. will be tried until Jan. I(s. when
the contested claim cases against Sey
mour, Sabin & Co. will be taken up. i
The cases in which Mr. Truesdale Is j
Interested are the so-called double \\
liability cases of E. L. Hospes et al.,
plaintiffs, vs. The Northwestern Manu
facturing and Car Company, defendant;
The Minnesota Thresher Company, in
tervener, vs. Ella P. Anderson, Harriot
T. Anderson, E. M. Anderson, David
Bronson and many others, defendants
impleaded. These cases were brought
by the Minnesota Thresher company,
intervener, against the defendants im
pleaded to recover from them as stock
holders of the Northwestern Manufact
uring and Car company, the amount of
certain stocks held by them, and alleged
never to have been paid for, and the
amount so involved is estimated at about
$1,500,000, representing more than half
of the total amount of liability. The
ease of McKusick vs. Seymour, Sabin &
Co. and The Minnesota Thresher Com
pany and A. H. Wilder et al., defend
ants, is a suit brought to recover the
value of a large amount of stock in the
Northwestern Manufacturing and Car
company, which belonged to Seymour,"
Sabin & Co., and which is claimed to
have been assigned to and distributed
among the stockholders of Seymour, |
Sabin & Co. in 188*2, without paying any
thing therefor except their own stock in
the Seymour-Sabiu company, which
they surrenderedrand which the officers
of that corporation claim to have can
celed aud retired. The amount involved
in this case is in the neighbor
hood of $1,500,000, the exact
sum not being known. Mr. Trues
dale alleges that the defendants
therein represented by him are the
owners ana holders, and are liable.for
more than one-half of the above amount,
if the stockholders are liable therefor at
ali. He further alleges and shows that
in the case of McKusick vs. Seymour,
Sabin & Co., the*- Minnesota Thresher'
Manufacturing Company, intervenor,
vs. John F. Meagher et al., defendants
impleaded, said thresher company
claims to recover ajijainst the stockhold
ers of Seymour, Sabin & Co. on their
individual liability for. corporate debts
under section 3 of article 10 of the con
stitution of this state, imposing a double
liability upon such stockholders, and
that the amount involved exceeds the
sum of $1,000,000, and that the defendants
represented by him are liable for
more than one-half of the amount if the
liability is sustained. Mr. Truesdale
has not been connected with these cases
until recently, and not being ready for
trial, they were continued. The petit
jury will meet next Tuesday, and Judge
Crosby expects that the criminal cases
will be tried before any of the civil cases
are taken up. . , ;-'*.'

Companies Finds Itself Among
Drouth in the Hawaiian Islands
Causes a Large Drain on tho
Sax Fk_ ncisco, Nov. 15.— The an
nual meeting of the stockholders of
Hawaiian Consolidated Sugar company
was held here today. President John :
Spreckles made a report in which lie
stated that the yield of sugar in
Hawaiian islands during the past years
has been reduced, owing to drouth, to
less than 8,000 tons, and that, owing to
the tariff on sugar, a low range of prices
had prevailed, the average being* $53
net per ton, against an average of $70
the preceding year.
The loss of incomes during the past
year was not less than $288,000. Divi
dends had not only been impossible,
but the company had been obliged to
borrow $300,000 to enable them to carry
on the work of saving the growing
crop. There remains a balance of
$100,000 of this loan in the treasury, but
it will all he exhausted in harvesting
the crop of ISO 3, according^ the latest
report, "which had been already reduced

bondholders, he . stated, will serve
notice of foreclosure, and, as he could
see no way of meeting their demands
and putting the company on a firm
basis for the future, he could only rec
ommend a surrender to them of the
company's property. ,
The report of the secretary was read
showing the assets of the company ag
gregated $3,932,000; liabilities, $1,200,000.

The stockholders discussed President
Spreckle's report, and decided to pay
the company's indebtedness as far as
possible and continue operations. They
will look to congress to adopt a more
favorable tariff legislation. The board
of directors, consisting of John D.

KELP FOP. STRIKERS.
The Question of Finances Con
fronting the Amalgama-
Many Men Disheartened, but
Many Determined to
; Fight It Out.
Strike Benefits to the Men a
Serious Drain on the
An Appeal Issued fop Aid for
the Locked-Out Home
Pittshit.o, Nov. 15.— 1t has now
been 138 days since the sympathy strike
inaugurated by members of the Amal
gamated association at the Lawrence
ville and Beaver Falls Carnegie mills
began. Today the Carnegie Steel com
pany, limited, started the last of its
works, or the Beaver Falls-plants, claim-"
ing that so far as the Lawrenceville and
Homestead works are concerned the
strike Is over.
It is not denied by any one that the
company has unquestionably the better
of the tight, although it has been enor
mously expensive. There are numbers
of the men in Lawrenceville and Home
stead who are disheartened, and at the
same time there are as many more who
are yet determined to fight it out. and
who will light for months it they can be
supported. It is the question of finance
which is at present the
Most Serious Problem
which the men have to deal with, and
it was this which Jed to the nine hours'
conference yesterday of the advisory
committees from Homestead,Lawrence
ville aud Beaver Falls with the officials
of the Amalgamated association.
That the conference was not entirely
satisfactory was learned from several
members of the committee today. The
conference was not for the purpose of
calling off the strikers. There was no
discussion of that, they say, for matters
have gone too far. The problem was to
raise money to prolong the tight in the
hope that something may turn up favor
ably in the cud, for today, were the dif
ficulties adjusted, many strikers would
t not be taken back, their positions being
! filled. A member of the advisory com-
I mittee said today there was no use of
holding out false delusions, but the sit
uation must be confronted as it is.
"There are about 1,000 persons in
Homestead and 300 each in Lawrence
vide arid Beaver Falls on -the relief
rolls," he said. "Of these half, or 800,
have families, and the Amalgamated as

A Severe Drain
on an organization composed of only
about 22,000 members. The outside
financial aid, while generous to a large
degree at first, has fallen off until it is
hardly a factor, and the question of
finance is indeed serious."
At present there are between 2,500
and 3,000 men working at Homestead,
•of.. which the strikers say only fifty
nine are old employes. At Lawrence
ville both sides agree that the plants
are filled, though the strikers say not
by capable men. About 1,600 men are
working in the two plants. The Beaver
Falls plant was thrown open yesterday
to its old men, and so far 300: have ap
-plied; Another .strike against tho
Amalgamated association which is still :
on is the Elba Iron works, in which
about 'men are out. The plant has
been almost refilled.
Attorneys Argo, of Sioux City, and
Erwin, of St. Paul, who are retained as
counsel for the imprisoned Homestead
ers, arrived this morning for the Critch
low trial, which begins tomorrow. They
will remain for all the trials.
ASK FOR AID.
Help Wanted for tneiLocked-Out
Men at Homestead.
New York, Nov. 15.— The officers of
the American Federation of Labor, the
Amalgamated Association of Iron aud
Steel Workers of America and the ad
visory board of Homestead loeked-out
men, tonight issued an address to the
""American public" which sets forth the
situation at Homestead, Fa., from the
strikers' standpoint. The Pinkertons
are called a "band of organized pi
rates;" the Carnegie company and "its
tyrant Trick" are charged with out
rages -upon the rights ot citizenship
and freedom; "sycophantic judges
lending themselves to complete the
work of an avaricious corporation by
securing the arrest of men by whole- ;
sale and charging them with every con
ceivable crime, conspiracy, murder and
treason being among the number. Law
distorted, twisted and misconstrued for
the purpose of rescuing the men be
cause they dared defend themselves."
The address contains the following
"It has been decided by the represent
atives of the men, the officials of the
Amalcamated Association of Iron and
Steel Workers of America and the ex
ecutive council of the American Feder
ation of Labor, to designated Tuesday,
Dec. 13. 1892, as Homestead day, and
we call upon the wage-workers, as well
as liberty-loving citizens of our country,
to make a contribution of a portion of
their earnings of that day to aid our
struggling brothers of Homestead in
their present contest to defend them
selves before the courts. In making
this appeal we pledge to you that every
dollar contributed will be devoted to
the best interests of the men, and uot
one cent used for any other purpose
than above stated. Their cases must be
brought before the highest tribunal of
our country if necessary."
OLD MEN PREFERRED.
The Beaver Falls Plant to Start
; Beavek Falls, Pa., Nov. 15.—No
tices were posted on the Carnegie works
this afternoon stating that applications
for work would be received until Satur
day, and the old men are preferred.
From 1 present indications the mill will
start next Monday. Net* men are con
stantly arriving, but the U iked-out men
have not decided whether" to continue
the strike or not. The advisory board
is in session with closed doors, trying,
it is thought, to induce a number of
weak members to be firm.
