GENERAL NEWS OF NORTHWEST.
Special to the Globe.
Wi:st Supebiok, Oct. 28.— The tele- j
gram sent from here last night was in
error in coupling the name of ex-Gov.
Merriam with that of Elliott ana Math
er, who have been sued by Gen. Mullen
in connection with the West Duluth
Water company sale and the -Everett,
"Wash., laud deal. Ex-Gov. Merrhun is
president of the Superior Water com
pany of which Mather was general
manager, and that led to the erroi of
colliding Merriain's name with the suit,
when, as a matter of fact, no other de
fendants are named in the complaint
except the two specified.
The telegram being received in the
usual course of newsgathering was
pi yen publicity, and the Globe cheer
fully accords the correction. In a let
ter to the editor ex-Gov. Merriam says:
1 lmve just had my attention called to
a telegram from West Superior, in
which some very remarkable state
ments are made with regard to myself
and others. As I am not, and never
have been interested in the project
noted in the telegram, I am very much
at a loss to know upon what authority
the statement Is published. 1 have not
been sued by Gen. Mullen; neither is
there any reason why he should com
mence any action against me. Very

DENIED BY NOMLAND.
Funds of North Dakota Not Im
Bismarck, N. D., Oct. 28. — State
Treasurer Nomland was seen this morn
ing regarding the charge that ?150,000
of the state funds were deposited by
him in one of the Helena banks, pre
sumably the one in which Senator
Power is interested, and in the most
vigorous language denied the story.
"1 deposit all the funds in my hands
as treasurer in the banks of North Da
kota only," said he. "One of these is
the Bismarck bank, of which Mr. Power,
of Helena, is a stockholder, but 1 am
I positive that they have never trans

The editorial in the Grand Forks

Another Manifesto From the

MANY ACCIDENTS YESTERDAY.
Owing to the Work of Men
New to the Business.
HUNDREDS APPLY FOR WORK.
A great number of the street car em
ployes congregated about labor head
quarters all day and up to a late hour at
night. Numbers from Minneapolis also
called during the day. Last night a
number of the St. Paul men went to
Minneapolis to attend a meeting there.
The men were quiet, except that they
talked among themselves behind closed
doors, or in groups in the adjaceut
rooms and halls. The officers of the
union were about the headquarters
most of the day, and last niuht gave out
the following address to the public:
"The street car men feel that their
side of the controversy has not been
properly nor fairly presented to the
public by Mr. Lowry and his associate
officers of the company, and therefore
make the following statement: The
street car employes are not trained
lawyers or politicians, like Mr. Lowry.
We are not versed in that diplomacy
which enables persons to present
their cause as that eentleman has.
flad we known that our correspondence
would be used by the company as a
justification for a lock-out that had
long been contemplated, we would have
been careful to have presented our
grievances so that our feilow citizeus
would correctly understand them.
•'Our communications, which Mr.
Lowry so eagerly gave to the public in
connection with his own, was intended
to be considered and construed in con
nection with other verbal communica
tions made to the company.
"To those who do not believe that la
bor is entitled to the same consideration
that is given 10 capital, this explanation
will not be deemed unimportant. Those
who believe that the employe is en
titled to some consideration and a fair
hearing, as well as the employer, will
recognize the force of this.
"The cities of St. Paul and Minneapo
lis are today suffering from the great in
convenience apd injustice of the street
car service, that is so inadequate as to
be disgraceful. The people are more
particularly and directly interested in
knowing who is responsible for this
great wrong to them.
"We wish to say that, although we
have had ample reasons for striking,
we did not cause the present condition
of things. The company is alone re
sponsible for the condition. Although
we said we would not longer submit
to certain grievances after Sunday,
Oct. 22, we did not do 4 so.
and the dishonesty ot the state
ment 'that the company did not
propose to wait for the threatening
strike,' is exposed by the fact that they
ordered the lock-out four days after
Oct. 22. This shows that the company
had determined to crush our union re
gardless of the rights of the public.
Like Vanderbilt, Mr. Lowry has, in
effect, said, 'The public oe d d.'
"Recognizing that a strike should not
then take place, we did all In our power
to avoid it. Before declaring a strike
we had withdrawn all our demands and
offered to arbitrate all differences, and
abide oy the result. As usual with such
corporations, our offer was spurred with
a sneer, and a strike invited; knowing
that life and limb would be imperiled
upon tour-fifths of the few trains that
could be operated by incompetent men.
"'Space is too limited to print a full
statement of our grounds of complaint
but briefly. Ever since the formation
of the union the company has been
doiug all in its power to destroy it by
substituting non-union men. The con
ductors nave been robbed by being coiu
peiled to pay for shortages that never
existed when they turned in the money.
We are prepared to prove all this, and
challenge the company to give us an
opportunity to do so.

INCiDENTS OP THE DAY.
Inexperience Canses Numerous
The interurbau line was the only one
operated with anything like any regu
larity all day, and it was subject to fre
quent suspensions for short periods,
owing to the greenness of the operatives
in charge. The Rice street line and the
Lafayette line ran cars with considera
ble frequency during the day, but
at evening ran. them all into the
barns. The cable line on Selby
avenue ran cars at irregular in
tervals during the day, but closed
down early In the evening, and the
cable stopped to make repairs. David
Curtin, a civil engineer residing on
Dayton avenue, said last night that he
had learned that the inexperienced op
eratives were resDonsible for tearing a
strand 100 feet long out of the cable. A
few cars were run on Seventh street,
but there was no attempt made
to give any service. The cars
were simply run to preserve char
ter rights. On several lines no car 3
were run. Citizens in the outskirts say
that on all the lines of the city proper
cars were not run to the ends of the
lines, but simply run in the main part
of the city. The service was not com
plete on even the interurban line. On
the cars run most of the men were evi
dently new hands, aud wore no uni
forms. On most ot the cars there were
from three to four employes,
the extra ones evidently going
through a course of training.

HUNDREDS WANT WORK.
Rigid Anti-Union Promises De-
manded of Them.
During the entire day yesterday a
large crowd of men stood in line at the
office of the company in the Globe
building making application for work.
The men numbered several hundred*
nearly all of whom are said to be
strangers in the city. The work, of en
gaging Vie men was very slow from the
tact that they were tauen into the inner
office separately aud examined.
An attempt was made In Interview
many of them. Martin Miller, who re
sides at the corner of Annapolis street
and Smith avenue; his brother Hubert
Miller, and S. E. Messer, after puttiug
up their §25 each and being engaged,
were called back and their money re
funded because they refused to promise
not to belong to any union. They were
former employes of the company, and
quit in good standing some time since.
George Sellrup, 202 University avenue,
and G. Gullender, 1077 Bradley street,
were also notified that they would not
be accepted after being engaged and
their money put up. All of these nieu
and a number of others whose uames
were not takeu said they were rigidly
catechised as to having belonged to any
union or having any intention of
joining one. Other men said that
they would not give their names,
but they were engaged upon
promises that they would not belong to
tiie union. Some of them said they
were told by Supt. Hoskina that it would
not be well to join any union. Others
said they were told that the only cou
dition on which they were engaged was
that they promise uot to join any uniou.
One of the men at Labor hall last
night said that when he was at work
some days ago he turned in an envelope
to the collector containing $3 in casti
and §1.70 in transfers. He was after
wards notified that his envelope con
taining $4.70 was missing, and the
mouey was taken out of his pay.
One of the new gripmen on the Selby
avenue cable line caused considerable
trouble yesterday afternoon and dam
aged the car which he was operating by
his carelessness. At the foot of Fourth
street the cars are switched by means
of a spur track, the grip car just
before reaohiug the spur being detached
from the cable and allowed to ruu by
gravity. The gripmau, who was a new
hand, forgot to release the cable when
he started across the spur track, and the
result was tiiat the grip and car were
badly wrecked. The accident delayed
travel for several minutes, and last
night it was reported the carelessness
of the gripmau caused the breaking of
one of the strands in the cable.
An interurban car was derailed at the
corner of Rice and University aveuue
yesterday afternoon by the niotoneer
endeavoring to pass the switch at that
point at too rapid speed.
Meeting at Market Hall Tonight.
A mass meeting has been called by
the trades and labor assembly for
Market hall at 3 o'clock this afternoon
to discuss the causes leading up to the
great street car trouble. The uniou
promises to divulge to the public a full
exposition of the grievances from the
beginning, including matters never
thought of by the general public.
The presidents and secretaries of the
unions "having delegates in the trades
and labor assembly will meet at Labor
hall at 2 o'clock this afternoon, to dis
cuss the advisability of tying up all
lines of trade in the city, pending the
street car troubles.
MINNEAPOLIS CARS MOVE.
In Spito of the Strike, Wheels Go
Round as Usuai.
To the average citizen It did not ap
pear that a general strike was in. prog
ress yesterday among the members of
the amalgamated association employed
ou the street car lines of the Twin
Cities. Cars on all the lines were run
ning, but in some instances at longer
intervals, but the delays were not such
as to be very noticeable or to cause any
great iuconveuience. As a rule, the
mandate of the meetins in St. Paul, or
dering the union men to quit work and
join the discharged employes, was
obeyed, but the places of the strikers
were at once filled with the relay men,
who have been training as extras for
the past few weeks.
Before daylight yesterday morning
several kackloads of union men came
over from St. Paul, arid as the hour
approached for the first car to be taken
out they took up positions at the several
barns, and in many instances the board
ing houses were visited where the union
men were notified of the action of the
meeting ordering a general strike. At
the baruthe union men were approached
by the walking delegates, who ex
plained the situation, and in many In
stances they then refused to take out
their cars, the places being at once
filled with substitutes.
In some instances threats were made,
but no cases of actual violence were
reported. P. E. Folsom. who wears .
Con Bailee 261, was ordered Lot to
take his car out under threats of being
killed, but he warned the strikers that
he would shoot the first man who
touched him. He took his car out with*
out molestation. Conductor C. W. Rlst
was also threatened, but no conflict oc- :
curred. Things were very quiet at the
East side barn, and it was the same at
the Thirty-first street barn, the most
excitement being at the Bloomington
avenue barn, where a large number «f
union men congregated. They refused
to run the ears,and they were kept going
at intervals by the non-union men.
Vice President Goodrich was at his
office at an early hour yesterday morn
ing, and he kept a close watch on the
Speaking: of the new turn affairs have
taken, he said:
"The fact that a general strike has
been ordered is not causing; any uneasi
ness.* The only men who quit when the
strike was ordered this morning were
some on the Bloomington line, aud they
were induced to do so by false repre
sentations on the part of the men who
came over from St. Paul.
•'I want to state that in my circular to

of matters and, questioned as to the

here and in St. Paul, aud we do not

•who quit work on the sp.ur of the mo
ment, and who were in good standing
with the company, and quite a number
of them have been put to work today.

system twice over, and that without
the slightest trouble. Great numbers
of deserving men have applied tor em
ployment, and lam deeply grieved to
see so much suffering and want as ap
pears to exist. lam also very sorry to
see the foolish step our men havo taken.
We liked some of them very well, and
would have done everything reasonable
to keep them in our service."
Throughout the day the strikers held
a number of secret conferences at their
hall on Washington avenue, the pro
ceedings being conducted with the ut
most secrecy. The orgauization was
perfected by the appointment of com
mittees to take charge of the several
branches of the work. One of the sub
committees met at the labor union office
and from a list of men still at work they
selected a number to be called upon by
the members of the committee, who
will endeavor to induce them to join the
strikers. It is understood that the Una
of action agreed upon is to fight the
matter out on aggressive principles.
During the afternoon the local men
were reinforced by strikers from St.
Paul, who advised them not to weak
en, and the customary arguments
were brought to bear, a number of hot
speeches, it is understood, being made
at the Washington hall meeting. Mean
time the cars on all the lines continued
to ruu. and the force ou the Harriet line
was reduced to supply men for the
liiverside and Bloomington divisions.
A PrtOTKACTKD MEETING.
In the evening the discharged men
met at Washington hall and conducted
another long and secret session, lasting
until I o'clock this morning. No amount
of pumping could elicit from any of
them what was going on. They
not only flatly refused to
give out any information, but
were often discourteous to the
newspaper men who asked them civil
questions. They denounced the papers
roundly for what they claimed was the
unfair treatment accorded them by the
press. The treasurer of the union de
clared that the papers had misrepre
sented the cause of the men, and that
they felt more bitter toward the press
From the fact that all the street car
lines were in operation until the usual
hour last night, it would seem to make
little difference to the company what
future action thfi Minneapolis union de
cides to take. No reports of any at
tempted interference with the running
ot the cars were received or circulated

EVERY MAN'S WORTH.
One Chemical Compound of an
Average Voter Is Valued at
An interesting exhibit at the National
Museum snows the chemical ingredients
which go to make up tne average man
weighing K4 pounds. Divided up into
his primary chemical elements the man
is found to certain ninety -seven pounds
of oxygen, enough to take ud, under
ordinary atomspheric pressure, the
space of a room ten feet lone, ten feet
wide and tea feet high.
His body also holds fifteen pounds of
hydrogen, which, under the same condi
tions, would ocrti|>y somewhat more
than two such rooms as that described.
I To these must be added three pounds
and thirteen ounces of nitrogen. The,
I carbon in the corpus of the individual
referred to Is represented by a foot
cube of coal. It ought to be a diamond
of the same size, because the stone is
pure carbon, but the National Museum
has not such a one in its possessoni.
A row of bottles contain the other
elements eoing to make up the man.
These are 4 ounces of chlorine, 3%
ounces of phosphorous, Z]4 ounces ot
brimstone, 2% ounces of sodium, 2%
ounces of potassium, 1-10 of an ounce
of irou, 2 ounces of magnesium and 3
pounds and 13 ounces of calcium.
Calc'um, at present market rates, is
worth £300 an ounce, so that the amount
of it contained in one human body has
a money value of $18,300. Few of our
fellow-citizens realize that they are
worth so much intrinsically.
