The Train Dispatchers* Association.
The Train Dispatchers' Association
of America stormed Minneapolis yes-
terday morning and were welcomed
with warm sympathy and hospitality.
The occasion was the opening of the
eighth annual convention of the order,
and over 100 of them were present with
their wives. At 10 o'clock yesterday
morning the convention assembled in
the ladies' ordinary of the West hotel.
It was a notable gathering, and in
keen intellectual expression no nobler
looking company of men have ever as-
sembled here.' Rev. George H. "Wells,
of Plymouth church, opened the ex
ercises of the morning with prayer.and
then Mayor Pratt was called upon to
welcome the representatives to .the
city. His address was full of assur
ances of hearty welcome on the part
of the city and expressionsl of warm
congratulation and hospitable senti
ment. He said that it afforded him
much pleasure to welcome such a
class of men to Minneapolis. He re-
alized the importance of their posi
tions, and the responsibility where
thousands of lives depended daily upon
their faithfulness and care. He of-
fered the visitors the keys of the city
with the expostulation that they might
take whatsoever seemed fair in their
eyes throughout the entire city of
Minneapolis.' T "-*.:'
A. F. Vie Roy, president of the as-
sociation, responded to the mayor's
words of welcome in fitting manner,
extending thanks for the very cordial
greeting extended through the chief
executive. He said that the train dis
patchers had the highest regard for
Minneapolis, and were satisfied that
it was a city of hustle and push, else
they had not seen fit to locate this con-
The regular order of business was
then taken up, and consisted largely
in the reading of reports from officers
and committees, and. was of a purely
technical order. During the .breath-
ing spell afforded by the retirement
of 'the committee on credentials, O. O.
Winter, of the Great Northern road,
was called upon for a speech and
made a .short but eloquent address.
His speech was devoted to a state-
ment of 'the real importance of the
■train dispatchers. ' He said that they
were the most faithful of employes
and gave their employers less trouble
than any other class of railroad men.
He had only words of praise and com-
mendation for the growth and suc
cess of the association and its work
since its organization on a firm basis.
' The annual report of the president
showed that *he past year had been
one of benefit to the association, and.
a prosperous state of affairs was evi
denced by the reports of the secretary
and treasurer. During the year sev
enty new members have been added
to the association, and there is at
present a balance on hand of $209.
The chief recommendations from the
executive committee were concerning
an official organ, and on this score
there is an outstanding indebtedness
of $1,000, and the report urges that
for the coming year some plan be de-
vised whereby an organ can be had
without incurring an increase of in-
debtedness, or if that seems impos
sible, to abandon all hope of an official
organ a.t all and plan the reduction
of the present debt. The report was
referred to' a committee of five, of
which J. F. Bran ton was chairman.
: THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS.
I The president's annual address, as
delivered, was as follows: -
Gentlemen of the Convention and
'On this occasion, the eighth annual
convention of our association, it is
with feelings of keenest pleasure and
satisfaction that I greet you.
Pleasure, because of this goodly as-
semblage of representative members of
our association, and because of the
presence of the ladies who accompany
them, and of our honored visitors, the
gentlemen in whose hands rests the
control of the leading railways enter-
ing the Twin Cities.
Satisfaction, because of the success
of our association and the progress we
have made since our last meeting. Not
only have we made great advance to-
ward the full attainment of the ob-
jects and purposes for which we were
organized, but during the last year,
by adhering to the prudent and con-
servative course adopted, we have
avoided the shoals and reefs on which
so many other organizations have been
wrecked. No railway dividends have
been reduced through any ill-advised
action on our part, through us the
public suffered no serious inconven
ience or sustained financial loss. Nor
are any of our officers and members
paying the penalty of violated law.
In the few years in which we of our
profession have been banded together
for the purpose of self-improvement
and the better . performance ■of 7 our
duty, we have wrought cosmos out of
chaos. We have reduced the various
systems of handling trains and pro-
tecting the lives • and property in-
trusted to our care to an exact sci
ence, insomuch that immunity from
accident through fault of the system
is now almost an absolute assurance.
And not only may we take pride in
the high standing of our order today
in the eyes of the public, but we may
feel that we are stronger, more firmly
united and better in every way than
The defection two years ago of a
number of our weaker members was
but a temporary- injury. We who re-
mained faithful in our duty and loyal
to the trust we accepted in our respon
sible positions have gained the confi
dence -Slid esteem of the highest offi
cials of the great interests we mv-
tually serve. And it is now fully re-
alized that our interests are identical,
that we are working together in per.
feet harmony for the accomplishment
of the greatest good. And so long as
we continue on the lines we have adopt-
ed, we may, be "assured, of thorough
recognition and appreciation in our
efforts. Then let us go, on with ths
good work with greater ardor and zeal
than ever, bending our talents and
every energy to the advancement of
our profession and the improvement
of ourselves. Let our standard be the
highest, and let each member strive to
live up to it. S Many high officials ,in
railway circles have risen • from tho
ranks of the dispatchers, and it is my
hope and wish that many of you who
' are here today may/through your own*
merits, rise to those positions of greater
honor and emolument, : if j not greater
responsibility. And while here let us
be stimulated in our efforts by thoughts
of the boys at home, many of whom
are doubling up that we may partake:
in the honor and pleasure of attend-
ing this - convention. The : local ■ mem-
bers of the order have arranged for
us a' most delightful programme of en-
tertainment- in this beautiful city of
unequaled hospitality and unrivaled at-
THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 12, 1895;
tractions, a feast for the eye and- soul
which we will not fail to do full justice
- to. In '' conclusion, . let ,me say : that
nothing affords me greater satisfaction.
than the knowledge that there are no
. dissensions In our association, - and it
is with the "greatest : pleasure that I
acknowledge my heartfelt appreciation
of the , noble support and aid or my
fellow officers, who have labored faith-
fully with me for the good of our order.
I thank: you all for your attention

Last evening the train dispatchers
were given ample opportunity to sam-
ple Minneapolis hospitality." The Com-
mercial club entertained the visitors
during the evening, and did it royally,
.as is characteristic of that institution.
The ladies and gentlemen, after an
hour's social "discourse, ' were con-
ducted to the new billiard • parlors,
where the ladies entertained the gen-
tlemen with an exhibition of expert
billiard . playing. After that the en-
tertainment of the evening was given
in the gymnasium, and consisted of
a magnificent programme of athletics,
which captured the audience complete-
ly. Dancing and singing were in-
dulged in, and the guests did not dis-
perse until a late hour. The Commer
cial club scored quite a success, and
is to be- congratulated on the superb
manner in which .it entertained • the
strangers. : :' "'':.-•- *. V
COL. PLI'MMERfS IDEAS.
He Doesn't Think the Silverites
Can Stump the "Wheat States.
Col. Plummer, of North Dakota, the
well-known Republican spellbinder, is
spending a few days in the Twin Cities
with his daughters. To aGI o b e man
who ran across the colonel yesterday,
he talked about industry and politics
in North Dakota.
"There is nothing," he said, "that
is of particular interest in regard to
the political outlook in North Dakota
that one can talk about. There is more
of diversified farming than ever before
in the history of the state. From all
that can be' learned, the acrage of
wheat is much less than it has been for*
the last three or four years, and the
acreage of other cereals, flax and vege-
tables, is much larger. This is going
to be a prosperous year for North Da
kota. Immigration into the state is
going on quite steadily. The immi-
grants now coming are of the most
desirable class. Dunkards from Indi
ana and other Eastern states are set
tling by the hundreds in Traill county,
in Cavalier and in the region north-
west of Devil's Lake. They are an
honest and thrifty people.
"How about the silver 1 question?
Well, here I have been talking half an
hour and haven't said a word about
this all-absorbing question. I am no
financial high priest— no oracle on this
question. Twenty years ago I thought
I knew all about finances. I felt my-
self qualified to' take right hold of the
finances of the country and carry them
on successfully. I could easily show
that the money power had . formed a
conspiracy to do up the country and
rob the people thereof. . In looking back
over the past it seems now as though
it was. all in my mind. I have run
across so many men like Loucks, Ward
all, Doc Fish and other financial
cranks, who never knew enough to
succeed In" farming or. anything else,
unless It was fake insurance or bind
ing twine schemes to do up the farm
er, and who yet could run the financial
affairs of the country— rather, think
they could— that I have concluded not
to say much on the subject. I don't
understand the double standard busi
ness. My views upon the question, if
they are worth anything, can be found
in: the financial resolution of the Re-
publican platform of 1892, and I have no
doubt you will be able to find them in
the platform of next year."
RACONTEUR DUGAN. I
He Writes Another "Not GniltyJ*
He Writei) Another eeXot - Guilty?""
James Dugan, who, with his partner,
White, is serving- a sentence at Still-
water for the murder of Harris, has
written a second letter to his attorney,
R. L. Penny, in! which he continues the
theme of previous letters, and tries to
show how he and White are innocent'
of the Harris crime. He claims to have
been found guilty on "guess work,"
and "probabilities," and charges that
the state had nothing more than ap
pearances and plausibility back of it.
In rejecting the testimony of Dr. Seal-
len and Jim Sheridan, the jury showed
that it. had no faith in them. A jury of
physicians would convict this doctor-
on his own testimony of perjury. After
White's trial the prosecution, "to
square itself with the public," asked
the mayor to revoke Sheridan's license.
In regard to the theory of the state
that he was wounded in the Harris
home, he challenges any one "to place
two men in any position, following
Mrs. Harris' own statement, so that a
bullet would leave wounds such as
were found on Mr. Harris' hand and
on my arm." The state had for an-
other theory the "third man," and Dv-
gan thinks it remarkable that this
mysterious person has never put in an
appearance "The state wants no
more trials in this case," says, ."and
that third man will never come into
existence." Dugan , calls attention to
the circular issued by the state de-
scribing the murderers, and points out
that neither he nor White answer that
description. - ZZZZZZZZZZZ -ZA-'Zj

who. was also president of the inter-
national pharmaceutical congress held

ing to reports." .>.;■•. ;
The president, Claus F. Rhode, . of .
Waterville, in his opening address, ex-
tended profound greeting to the mem-
bers who had left their business to
come together for the improvement of
the standard of their profession, and
who had left the infusion of their shops
to be infused here with a greater love
for their work. . The president thought
the free alcohol clause in the- Wilson
bill should be repealed, and also the ob-
noxious trademark and patent laws of
the country. As a final recommenda
tion be urged the early action of the
Minnesota body to get the American
Pharmaceutical association to meet
here in 1897.

guests yesterday and was in all the
bravery of summer festivity. The par-
lors were beautifully decorated with

flux of guests at the Lake Park is the

. PORTLAND, 7 Or., June 11.— Gen.
Wade Hampton, United ■; States rail-
road commissioner, arrived in Port-
land last night on a tour of inspection
of the Pacific railroads. This is his
first stop at any place . since he de-
livered the address of dedication of the
Confederate monument at Chicago.
"How do you stand on the financial
question?" he was asked during a con-
versation. -..-. -..,
"I am in favor of sound money. The
five propositions set forth by Secretary-
Carlisle are unanswerable. I hope that
every newspaper in the country op-
posed to free silver will continue to
publish these propositions. Nothing
could be more convincing. Secretary
Carlisle's preliminary statement of a
proposition that he is about to discuss
is a speech in itself; he is argumenta
tive, clear-headed and most convinc-
ing.' He has wonderful ability and is
all right on the financial question."
Gen. Hampton says he does not be-
lieve the Democratic party will de-
clare for the coinage of free silver.
It would not surprise him if Cleveland
were nominated for a third term.

it, but he had no idea of its doing so,

quite as intelligently as before. -- ■
"I guess the paper made a mistake,".
said the boy, fixing up his own expla-
nation, "and it meant to say he tore
up the street. I've seen the streets tore
up a good many times laying street
car tracks and. gas pipes and things."
He thereupon; resumed -his reading

The Chinese are inveterate gamblers,

no matter | trivial the cause may
be. One of ' their greatest | Institutions
is cricket fighting, the crickets being
caught, fed. and trained carefully as a

There is a fixed diet for them, part
of the food consisting . of honey jj and
boiled chestnuts. If they get sick they
are fed with mosquitoes. - Prior to
fighting their weight is jj ascertained ;
and duly recorded, there being, a fixed -
regulation as to \ their size and weight.
On the door of the house in which the
fight is to take place the record of each
cricket is pasted up, and j the owner, of
the winner, gets. 10 per cent .of all the
bets. ).'.-. A -'-'". ' : :.-^;' "'■'-' ■. '■■'■

MEMPHIS, Term., June 11— By a
moderate stretch of imagination a vis
itor in Memphis tonight might fancy
himself in the national capital on I the
eve of the assembling of congress^ or
in •-, the midst • of a national", political
convention. The, political element of
the free silver hosts has preceded the
radical element in today's arrivals for
the great white metal conference,
have been numerous and . have
included many men of national repu
tation. Senators Turpie, of Indiana,
.and Harris, of Tennessee, who were
the first upon the .scene, have been
followed in close order by j Senators
Bate, of Tennessee; Jones and Berry,
of Arkansas; George and Walthall, of
Mississippi; ; Gov. Evans and Senator
Tillman, of South Carolina; while
Senators Butler, of North Carolina, .
and Pasco, of Florida, are on their
way, together with other prominent
silver leaders, including ; ex-Senator ■
Reagan, of Texas. . Congressman
Bryan, of Nebraska, will accompany
the " Louisiana delegation of ' 200 on a
special train from New Orlenas. ' Ex-
Corigressman Sibley, of Pennsylvania,
is expected to arrive tomorrow morn
| ing, as are also ex-Gov. Prince, of New
Mexico ; Senator Stewart, of Nevada, j
and Alexander Delmar, the author of
several well-known coinage works.
. .'". The town is rapidly filling up to-
night with 2,000 or 2,500 delegates
who it is expected will _ face Presi
dent Brown, of the local -metallic
league, when he calls the convention
to order at 11 o'clock tomorrow morn
ing. They come by scores from the
neighboring towns irt Arkansas, Mis
sissippi, Alabama and Tennessee, the
extreme Northwest, and \ from Flor
ida. They represent about twenty
states, lying principally west of the
Mississippi and south of the Ohio riv
ers. The general sentiment - favors
Senator Turpie, of Indiana, for pre
siding officer of the convention, with
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, as; chair-
man of the committee on resolutions.

of the green flag of the Sixty-third
regiment. \ -N*»w- York Volunteer?, of
the famous Irish brigade, commanded

The flag is in" the possession of

ent governor of New tore; Augustus
Cleveland, Henry T. Spaulding, George
Bliss and Henry C. Townsend.
The presentation was made near the j,
field of Fredericksburg the day after ,
the battle there in which the Irish
brigade, by its charge, won renown.
A delegation of New York citizens

flags to the brigade, one to the Sixty-
third regiment, one to the Sixty-ninth
regiment and another to the Eighty-
Colonel Brady cut a piece from the
flag, and sent it. to Mr. Martin. with a

A newspaper printed at Lubeck, '■
Germany, gives a curious instance of
police tyranny in the neighboring town |
of Dassow. A poor laboring woman
named Dorothea Bruhn, whose hus- \
band had for many years been bed- /
ridden, went to the pastor of the town
with a request that he would officiate
at the burial of one of her children. i
The pastor merely said that he would ,"•
see about it, and failed to appear at
the grave at the appointed hour. In'Z.Z
default of other religious services the'^;!,
mourning mother recited over: the.
grave a single verse of a hymn express-
ing her faith in the child's welfare In
the other world. For doing this she
was reported by a zealous policeman aa
having violated an ordinance forbid
j ding any lay person to make a dis
i course at an Interment. The police
justice fosund her guilty, and she was
fined the sum of a little less than a
dollar, with the alternative on non-
payment of a day's imprisonment.
