Wains, and there is but little doubt they
were brought on by the terrible "frost"

was "promised" anything for making
the bluff in the matter of Heirup's cer
iilicate of nomination?

row night. He will speak iv behalf of
the Democratic ticket, especially the
congressional. , He is oue ot the fore
most single tax orators of the country.
His appearance here is an event of . im
portance, and must not be ; overlooked
by the Democrats of the city and couuty.

The Penny Press says that Robert
Pratt has an enviable war record. The
voters of this city do not question the
records of the dead past; they are inter
ested in the very much alive present.
His war record may be good, but the
same cannot be said of his aldermanic
record, relative, for instance, to the
Franklyn W. Lee, the St. Paul news
paper man, was accorded a hearty re

house, where his farce comedy, "The
Star Gazer," was given its Initial North
western production. He has evrry rea
son to feel proud of the manner in
which his creation was received, for it
was applauded throughout. It is a
clever thing, and will no doubt bring in
a nice round sura of money before the
season is over.
Mr. Lee lias achieved considerable
fame as a writer of short: stories and
verse. The comedy, "The Star Gazer,"
will add to his laurels. -

i The Minneapolis Crusader is irrepres
sible. He is known the country over,
not for his originality, but for his per
sistency in emulating the distinguished
Dr. Parkhurst, of New i'ork. . The Cr
usaders of this city, however, work spas
modically, so much so that there
have been frequent remarks that
there must have _•; been some ui
rerior motive in their " crusading.
During the Winston administration
they made merry war on the saloon
keeper, and for the most part it was for
political effect Mayor Eustis, then
plain William Henry, was one of the
active members of the league. He con
tributed not only his moral, but finan
cial support. When he was elected
mayor it was supposed that the Cru
sader had gone to his. lair, and would
not show his head at least during the
period of the Eustis reign.
But such was not the case. He has
bobbed up serenely, at divers times and
places, much to the chagrin and worri
inent of the honorable mayor, who has
become thoroughly disgusted with the
human enigma he at one time helped to
create. Dean Sudduth, of ■, the dental
school, lias of late taken up the cudgel
in behalf of the Law Enforcement
league. He is proving himself a verita
ble Parkhurst, two Morrills rolled into
one. Yesterday, in speaking of the
work of the Crusaders, he said:
"We are in the fight to stay. We in
tend to show the brewer and salouu
men of this city that it makes no differ
ence to them what party or what man is
in charge of the city government, and
that no matter what promises candi
dates may make before election, they
absolutely can't deliver the goods.
"Within the week we will have begun
the prosecution of a number of violators
oi the liquor laws. We intend to show
the saloon men that they must obey the
laws made for the regulation of their
business or suffer the consequences. -
"There are men in this city who are
obeying the law. We have fouud many
saloons ciosed, we have fifty or sixty
cases against saloonkeepers, and we are
not confining ourselves to the mere
prosecution for keeping open on Sunday
this time, but shall charge them also
with selling liquor on Sunday, with
selling to students, which, I believe,
is a violation of a state law, . with
selling to habitual drunkards and to
minors, and to pessons already drunk
and disorderly. These are practices
which even the mayor does not defend.
Further than that, we are going to per
fect a permanent and thorough organi
zation tor this reform movement cover
ing the entire city. We now have it or
ganized in seven of the wards, and the
remainder will be organized immediate
ly after election. Then we will have a
central city committee composed of one
member from each precinct iv the
city, which shall have its own
offices and subcommittees for the
furtherance of this reform work. We
are going to fight this thing systemati
cally. We have been a little 'spotty' in
the past, it is true, but it was because
we were studying the situation. We
have discovered that it makes little dif
ference which party is in. At the time
ol the last election we had sixty cases
against saloou ordinance violators,
with the evidence already in
shape, but relying on the remarks of
Mr. Eustis, at the famous Union league
meeting, where he tragically pleaded to
have the sous and daughters of his fel
low men taken from the path to hell,
aud not desiring to endanger the elec
tion of so earnest a supporter of law and
order as he, we dropped . our cases. It
was a mistake. We will not be so mis
taken again. The reputable people of
this community are behind us in tbis

CLERK' HANK RULING.
In the Matter of Hoirup It Is Ar
City Clerk Haney has taken it upon
himself to construe the law relating to
the qualifications of candidates for elec
tion. The Globe yesterday morning
printed an accouirt of the city clerk's
arbitrary ruling in the matter of ac
cepting the qualification of Mr. Hoirup,
the Sixth ward candidate for alderman.
Yesterday he remained as stubborn as
ever, and it is the opinion of everybody
that lie has some ulterior motive in en
deavoring to prevent : Mr. Hoirup's
name from appearing on the ticket. He '
sent the following to City Attorney
Simpson. Mr. Simpson was .at home
suffering from a severe cold, and Mr.
Haney probably thought no opinion
would be forthcoming:
"Am I compelled to file said certificate
and place the name of T. N. lloirup on
the city ballot as the Republican can
didate for alderman in the Sixth ward?
I wish to state further that at 4:30
o'clock p. m.. on Saturday, the 27th
Inst., 1 received a request by telephone
from J. W. Lansing, that he be per
mitted to file three certificates of Pro
hibition candidates, and that 1 admit
him to my office in order that he might
file said certificates, which request 1
refused, believing then, as 1 do now,
that 1 had no right to receive any cer
tificates after business hours. Unless
advised by you to the contrary, I shail
refuse to place the name of said T. N.
Hoirup on the city bailot, holding the
certificates as not being legally filed"
Your written opinion is respectfully re
quested at your earliest opportunity."
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon he re
ceived the following, which demon
strates that the city clerk has gone
beyond his province In the matter re
ferred to. In spite of the opinion, which
is adverse to his stand, he says that he
will not print Hoirup's name on the
ticket unless compelled to do so by the
Hear Sir: In answer to the within
communication. 1 am of the opinion
that the certificate was legally filed and
the. name of Hoirup should go on the
ticket. If you remember, 1 think you
were present with County Auditor
Cooley when that question was raised,
about a week ago in my office. I at that
time advised him that, while he was
not required to remain at his office alter
office hours to receive certificates, still,
if a certificate was tendered to him any
time before midnight, he would be
bound to receive it.. -The law, I assume,'
does uot provide in terms the hours
within which certificates may be filed.
In the absence of such a provision, a
candidate would be entitled ■ to ~ the
whole day to fila it in. j The fact that
Hoirup was not -■ personally present
would not, under the law, make the fil
ing irregular. Respectfully submitted,
David F. Simpson, City Attorney.

of nomination for city offices 'shall be
handed to and filed with the city clerk
on or before the secoud Saturday before
election.'. Any claim that the 'da*' can
be shortened by an arbitrary rule fixing
'office hours' is puerile. Mr. Hoirup's
certificate was actually handed to the
city clerk and was legally hied before
9 o'clock in the evening of Saturday.
His name will go on the ' ticket; The
Republicans of the Sixth ward shall
not be ll un Mummed out of their rights in
Mr. Hoirup will take legal measures
to force the city clerk to print his name
ou the ticket.

day, Aid. Rand made the following
"1 desire to state that I will leave any

THE WILSON BILL.
One Instance of Its Benefits Shown
An interesting result of the passage
of the Wilson tariff bill became appar
ent yesterday afternoon when the bids
for the marble work' for the new city
and county building were opened.
Heretofore the United States has im
posed a tariff on all fine Italian marbles,
but under the new law this is taken off,
and the citizens of Minneapolis can
have the best marble in the world in
their county and city buildings at a
price that they would have had to pay
for the Tennessee or Georgia article.
President Grant, of the East Tennes
see Stone and Marble company, was
present at the meeting yesterday, and
he publicly made the statement, after
inspecting the bids, that the Italian
article could be had for a price as cheap
as he had offered to furnish his product.

Assault in the first degree was the
charge in the indictment on which
Henry WamDacher was tried in the dis
trict court court yesterday. John Pruyn
was the complaining witness and took
the stand with two or three cashes
showing livid on his face and neck. He
told the story of the affray, beginning
by saying that he was walking on the
street with Mra. Wambacher one night
about the middle of July. He had a
pail in his hand, and he and the laßy
were going after a drink of fresh water,
when he was attacked by Wambacher,
who struck the first blow. Pruyn ad

claimed that he had pulled his revolver

Golf Cross-Questions the 7 New
— York Police Commissioner.
New York, Oct. 29.— Commissioner
Sheehan was again on the witness stand
before the Lexow committee today. He
made some corrections In preceding
portions of. his testimony. One was
with reference to his partnership with
Mr. Brown. « lie produced a printed
notice of a prospective partnership
which had been mailed to friends early
in February, 1892. He was not appoint
ed police commissioner until March of
that year. He had intended to resign
his position on the aqueduct board
about May 1. but his appointment to
the police board came before that time.
Mr. Sheehan also presented a paper
which proved to be the first notification
to bidders in the Long Island city con
tract, in which it was shown that a
check for 5 per cent of of the bid was
enclosed in an envelope. His informa
tion on this point was obtained: from
Mr. O'Brien; he knew nothing of it
. The commissioner, referring to the
fact brought out by Mr. Goff that no
judge had ever rendered a decision de
claring pool selling illegal, cited a de
cision by Judge Van Brunt, iv the case
of Thomas F. Wynne. The court of
appeals had upheld the decision.
"I'm glad you mentioned that," said
Mr. Goff. "That's the case of the Bar
clay street pool seller, who said he was
a common carrier." "-:■
Mr. Sheehan. stated that no action
had beeu taken in the case, but that he
had been ready to vote on it. He ad
mitted that the Slavin trial had not been
decided as promptly as . it should have
been. In reply to the question hoar
many times during the two years He had
been commissioner had be ' heard that
protection money was being paid to the
police for various forms .of vice, Mr.
Sheehan said he had heard it less since
he had been a commissioner than before
he came on the ' board. - The commis
sioner said he considered the superin
tendent better qualified to investigate
such cases than the board was.
-"Have you ever heard it said," Mr.
Goff asked with a smile, "that every
police commissioner was corrupt and a
bribetaker, except Commissioner Mac-

won't say whether 1 heard it said
or not." he said. "I have read that
some Republican stump speakers had
expressed themselves in such a . man
ner,- and probably every one of them
are bribe-takers themselves. They lied."
"You said Friday." observed Mr. Goff.
"that the people of New York were in
debted to Richard Croker tor closing tno
pool rooms," continued Mr. Goff.
"I said he was always doing good
thintrs." said Mr. Sheehan.
"So the fact remains that it remained
for Richard Croker, a private citizen,
to force the commissioners to do their
duty?" sneered Mr. Goff. -.-•--:
ie "I did not admit that," said Mr.
Sheehan. angrily. '
• Regarding pool selling the commis
sioner said that he was satisfied the
sellers paid the police for "protection,"
but that he could not trace the money.
He had heard that Supt. Byrnes got it,
but doubted the truth of this report.

Buxton pushed the chair on which the
foolish woman stood from under her,
and she swung, into eternity. Buxton
took what money was in the house and

that they are in danger at the hands of
a supposed strangles On Sept, 3 Lena
Tapper was found choked to death' in
bed, and the murder remains a mystery,
although Kichard Demady, with whom
she lived, was arrested, and is now un

Yesterday Marie Cantassoit was found
dead in bed. aud her appearance indi
cated that she had been choked to
death. . Richard Demady, Charles Scho
ler and John Callahan have been arrest
ed. Demady recently wrote Marie ask
ing her to live with him, and she re
fused. She had lived with Scholer until
a week aeo. Callahan claimed last week
to have been robbed of $171' in Marie's
house, and he was seau iv the neighbor
hood Saturday night.
Antonio Sautopietro, messenger of
the police department, and Emil Tay
mens were also arrested on suspicion.
Both were in the bouse, according to
their statements, when the murder was
committed, yet they heard no disturb
ance. Taymens was employed by the
woman as cook, and is said to have been
very jealous on account of the prefer
ence shown by her for Sautopietro.
Sautopietro has been dismissed from
the police force. The murdered woman
is believed to have had considerable
money, and as only 25 cents was found
in the house after the murder, one
theory is that robbery was the motive
for the crime.
