political friend in the whole capitol j
shooting match. ." i
With this state of affairs the wiser
ones in the party, the Minneapolis
Journal says, have been trying to
Impress upon Berg the harm he has
done and is continuing to do. The
other state officers have one by one
•gone to Berg, but it has been no use.
The first idea that struck Berg was
that Gov. Clough and Auditor Dunn
were in a combine to down him.
Thinking that to be the case, he re
fused to pay any attention to what
they suggested. He would not write
to Wil'it and ask him to please stay
in Denmark the remainder of his
days. Neither would he consent to
have "Rush Work" Stevens resign,
which it is said Stevens offered, and,
in fact, expressed a desire to do.
Treasurer Koerner also went to
him. but with the same result.
On top of all this the local politicians
have begun to conclude that some
thing must be done. A St. Paul politi
cian went to Secretary Berg last week
and told him that Wildt must be dis
missed and the fact proclaimed to the
public, lb- told him that by dropping
Wildt and Stevens at this time It
might be possible for himself to se
cure a renomination, but that it cer
tainly was not possible to do so unless
he shook the "Dear old pals." A few
days later a delegation .of Hennepin
county politicians also called upon
Berg and urged the necessity of his
getting rid of the other members of
the political firm. Berg said be would
■think the matter over. It was the
•first time he had said anything about
thinking. Some of the people around
the capitol were beginning to doubt
that Berg ever did any "thinking. But
he promised to do some, whether he
had been doing any before or not.
Secretary Berg was informed by
both the Ramsey and Hennepin coun
ty men that he cannot carry either
county in the next convention unless
he changes his office force and does
that quickly. A good many of the
country papers say the same thing
about other counties, so that it would
not be surprising if Berg would have
a chance to return to his home and
spend his time learning to think.
The Minneapolis Journal says, speak
ing of Berg and what he has done:
"The question is not a pleasant one
in any of its features, and the closer
the inquiry the less pleasing it Is.
After acquitting Mr. Wildt of any
intention to defraud the state, or do
anything wrong, which very many do
of those who are opposing him, there
still remains the fact that the census
was not well managed from a busi
ness standpoint, and that there were
reckless expenditures of the state's
money. By the great majority of the
people, Wildt and Expert- Stevens are
being held to blame. Berg probably
knew nothing of those details. He
could hardly be expected to know, for
his hands were full in the general
It is now said that Berg goes so far
as to claim that if Stevens is not the
man for the place of expert- printer that
Auditor Dunn and Treasurer Koerner
are equally responsible for it. This
makes them smile as they intimate
that he has been kept there against
their wish for months, simply because
Berg has insisted upon his staying.
In collection with this matter another
little piece of interesting gossip is
going around. It is known that th«
McGill Printing company has not been
jntitled to receive as much of the work
as it is receiving but that they are

MORGA.N FOR CONGRESS.
Report lias It lie Will He* Nomi
nated Toy the SilverlteV.
State Senator D. F. Morgan, of Min
neapolis, will be nominated for con
gress next fall by tin- free sllver*people,
if he will consent to run. It is not like
ly that Mr. Morgan will be the It pub
lican nominee, and he most certainly
will not be nominated by the. Demo
crats. Congressman Fletcher is be
lisved to have a cinch on a renomlna
tion at the hands of the regular Repub
lican organization; but there are those
in Minneapolis, and some of them are
Republican leaders, who believe and as
sert that a free silver man can be
elected to succeed Fletcher. Congress
man Towne's recent lecture before the
Gold and Silver club was the opening of
the campaign that is to be waged by
the sixteen to one men. There is to be
no cassation of work along the 'lines
laid down by the club platform, and th.*
men who compos?, it are flattering
themselves that before next fall they
will have worked up a sentiment
strong enough to venture a fight for the
congressional seat now held by Uncle
Loren. ■'- '-.
When the free silver advocates were
considering the calling of a state con
vention of people friendly to the white
metal and the Populistic ratio Senator
Morgan discouraged the scheme; at
least to the extent that he would not
sanction a bolt from . the ranks of the
Republican party. Since that time the
senator has become more firmly settled
in his convictions on the- question, and
men who should know whereof they
speak say he is now ready to be
"called" as an independent candidate
on a platform demanding the fre? coin
age of silver at sixteen to one. Such a
move is not in the least unlikely in
Minneapolis, where the head pushers
are mostly free silver men. They are
not in a position to control the regular
convention of the party, perhaps, and
are not reckoning on doing that. But
they are very carefully planning to so
shape matters that a fight over the
congressional platform will give oppor
tunity to run a free silver candidate.
Before Congressman Towne's visit •
some people had hopes that a similar
state of affairs could be brought about
in Congressman Kiefer's district. But
they soon discovered that they were
mistaken, and have abandoned the
idea. They have found little or no en
couragement for the scheme to run a
free silver candidate «gainst Klefer;
but in Minneapolis and Hennepin coun
ty things are considered ripe for a
breakaway. And wlu n it comes Sena
tor Morgan will be pushed forward as
the Moses to lead the free silver hosts
to victory. ;*

There will be no garbage contract
b_«l no ' garbage contractor in. St.
Paul next year. A. least there will
not If the council indorses th"-* ivc-
ndation of the 'eint committee
on garbage. *
In view of the un-viti--.'.*ut'-ry and j
incomplete manner in which the
garbage is being collected under the
present contract, the garbage com
mittee determined to effect, a reform.
Accordingly at its last meeting the
committee appointed Chairman ,T< hn
son, Health Comra!s?.:oner stone and
the corporation at*o*n-?y a subcom
mittee to devise a new* plan and
draft the proper ordinance re.-ti-red
to make it effectual. The result of the
labors of the subcommittee appears
in the following report, which will
be submitted at the next meeting of
'•The special joint committee on
garbage respectfully rep-*rt that they
have had under consideration .the
matter of a new contract for the
gathering and disposition of r.arLag-e
for the year 18-3-3, and, after a
thorough investigation, and in. the
light of our last experience, we are
of the decided opinion that the only
satisfactory solution of this vexed
question is that garbage should be
disposed of by means of cremation,
and that for the successful carry
ing out of this method, the city
should own and run, under the di
rection of the health department, the
"To put this method Into practical
working shape would necessitate an
expenditure of from 115,000 to 520,000,
and under our charter this cannot be
done unless the money is In the treas
ury for that purpose or in a then ex
isting tax levy, neither of which con
ditions prevails at present.
"It will therefore be seen that it is
impossible to provide for the disposi
tion of garbage by menas of cremation
for the year 1896, but in order that we
may be able in the near future to pro
vide this advanced and only -correct
method for disposition of a city's filth,
we earnestly recommend that the con
ference committee and council insert
in the next tax levy an Item of $■"'O,OOO
for the purchase and erection of an im
proved . sanitary crematory.
"In the meantime what shall we do
for the year 1896? We believe that the
letting of a contract under the terms
and methods now in vogue in this city
is simply a waste of the people's money
and that the garbage will be better dis
posed; of and thousands of dollars
saved by enacting a stringent ordi
nance compelling householders to pro
vide proper receptacles for garbage.and
to deliver the same to licensed scav
engers, and with that end in view we
recommend that no contract be let for'
,the year. 1898." ... „ . .
The subcommittee will also recom
mend the passage of an ordinance em
bodying . the foregoing . ideas. In ex
plaining the. matter yesterday Mr.
"There is no use in wasting money
by attempting to dispose of the gar
bage under the present system. As it
is now, at least two-thirds of the gar
bage is not collected. I do not wish to
be understood as. censuring the gar
bage contractor, for I am confident that
he is doing the best he can under the
terms of his contract It is impossible
for him to do all the work demanded
for the sum of $9,000 or so a year. As
I have always maintained, cremation
is the only solution of this vexatious
problem, and until the city can erect a
cremator, we concluded it would be
wiser and better in every way to re
quire householders to provide, recepta
cles for garbage which Is to be collected
and disposed of by licensed scavengers. '
This plan, will not only save' the city
money, as It does not contemplate the
expenditure of one cent, but it will
also obviate a good deal of wrangling
between the garbage contractors and
members of the council." ...

Asks Some Questions.
The new insurance law is sufficiently
complicated to mix 'the insurance men
of the state, up a good deal, and In
surance Commissioner Smith has
written the following letter to the at
torney general, asking his opinion on
some of the points In dispute:
"I have the honor to submit | here
with a letter front Messrs. Hughson
and Hemanway, insurance agents of
St. Paul, asking for information in re
gard to procuring insurance in unau
, thorized insurance companies, and how
it can be legally done under the new
insurance law. I would respectfully
, ask an answer to the questions asked
by Messers. Hughson and Hemanway,
and also to the following questions:
"First— an individual procure a
license under the provisions of section
32 of the new law without paying any
fee therefor? .•'.■*....,
"Second— lf a fee is required for such
license under the provisions of section
15, is it the intention of the law to
charge a fee of $10 or. only $1?
"I have also received a letter from
- Attorney Van Dyke, of Milwaukee,
•■ who represented the Chicago insurance
people at the hearing in your office
, last month, and- who submitted an ar
gument to the effect that co-insurance
clauses could bemused under the new

Capitol Commission About Ready

It ie expected by the capitol commis
sioners that a vote will be reached this:
afternoon on the . adoption of a plan-
for a new capitol. This expectation is
based on the fact that no arguments,,
heard yesterday, were seriously in con-,
fliot with the determination to reach a
decision on the. particular merits of the
plans. While none of -these plans is
perfect or satisfactory, there are sev
eral much above the average in point
of detail and general arrangement. For
two or three hours the commissioners
talked over the merits of the five plans
most favored by the expert; but they
did not feel willing to attempt a : set-,
tlement of the question of superiority;
at least, not In an off-hand manner.
When the commission meets at 10
o'clock this morning, if Col. Graves is
present, the members will at once be
gin a canvass of the sentiment pre-'
vailing,- and before "evening a decision
may be reached. "...

five youths stood out on the rear
I platform smoking. The conversa
tion lagged, and Mr. King casually
referred to the Corbett-Fitzslmmone
contest. A moment later he sin
cerely wished that he had mentioned
doves, baby food, : ginger ale, or
some other subject less stimulating
than a prize fight. For he had hard
ly observed that appearances . Indi
cated that the "mill . wouldn't be
pulled off at Hot Springs" when an
equally exciting "mill" began' sud
denly in St. Paul, and on the plat
form of Mr. King's car. . Without
warning he received a blow on the
ear from one of the quintette, and
another blow in the stomach from a
second rowdy. Although not versed
in the modern school of elocution
ary pugilism, Mr: King is something
of a pugilist of the old school. He
is thirty-five years old and vigorous.
He was, therefore, surprised that,
in spite of his well directed defense,
his assailants, young as they were,
imparted much more personal in
jury than they received. ';. "
'-:'- Frightened at the uproar .on the
platform, a 'woman . fainted inside
the car. ".'•. The conductor rushed to
'• wards her, ringing for the car to
stop. As soon as the gates opened,
the five ruffians leaped out. King
had seized one of them by the arm,
bi^t the conductor, anxious to escape
tfrjom such riotous 7 ' passengers, had
I signaled the motoneer to go' ahead.
rTbe closing gates forced Mr. King
:icj -relinquish his prisoner Meanwhile
•■ excitement -Inside the car by the
; fainting woman had prevented - the
[- conductor from rendering any as
< isistance toward capturing the young
toughs. Left alone, Mr. King dis
covered that 'he had been robbed of
na valuable gold' watch and $40 in cur
rency. The 'watch bad been torn
,Jrbm its "chain; the- money been
, rtteikpn from a vest pocket.. '. ' ' ; '
, a At the next .crossing, he left, the
c ** 7 and notified the police. After

fofcind on -the rear platform of the
car, where they had been dropped
by the escaping thieves, the watch
and- a two-dollar' bill. These arti
cles were returned to Mr. King yes
terday. None of the merry Robin
Hoods have as yet been captured. ' '

U ] HENRY VIII.JS TIME. 7 -
Dlacnssccl by Rev. S. G. Smith Last
'<" -I --i-' ■ . -.-.. Night. -7> 7 •"' :-'y .
"".] "Henry .-VIII. did more to promote
purity In the home than any English
monarch that preceded- him," was the
statement made last evening at the
■ People's church by Rev. '■■ S. G. Smith
in his lecture on the "Reformation in
'England." Dr. Smith also asserted
that the court of the obese Henry was
"less* sullied by immorality than any
court of that age."- These statements,
although out of -line with old-time tra
dition, accord fully with the opinion of
.the most recent historians, who are
convinced that Henry: the VIII. was
, not as bad, if as fat, as hei was painted.
. Dr. Smith sketched the progress of the'
' English reformation from the. Wars of
'" 7J ?h'e|Roseß to the departure of the- Pil
' -prim's _ for New England. . He pointed
Out that while the reformation in Scot- ;
land under John Knox was essentially
• a theological reformation, the reforma
convinced that Henry. V 111 ..... was
.a matter of politics and church gov
ernment, . and that Its theological
changes were grafted upon it later as
the result of the writings of Calvin.
The , writings of the latter reformer
were described by Dr. Smith as having
results so direful that the massacre of
•St. Bartholomew was harmless in com

In view of the desire of the public
.as .'manifested in' various t ways to
know the facts in reference to the
work of Mr. Bemls as a university ex
tension associate prefer, or in the Uni
versity of Chicago, and in order to re
move certain Impressions -which his
letter of a recent date occasions, we,
who have been from the beginning
. most thoroughly conversant with all
the facts, and Indeed officially con
nected with his work, desire to make
the following statement:
■ Mr. Bemls* position In the university
from the beginning has been that of a
university extension associate pro
fessor, the "understanding being that
his work should be largely In this de
• partment, since his services were not
needed in the class work of -the uni
versity proper, in view of the large
number of professors there employed.
i In no discussion of Mr. Bemls' rela
tion •to the ' university,, between our
selves as officers of the university, or
with the president; of the university,
ha,3 the. question of Mr. Bemis' views
on subjects of political economy or so
ciology been raised.
The simple fact is that the university
extension . division, which at present
has no regular endowment to pay the
salaries of professors engaged in this
particular work, is dependent upon the
fees received from the lectures for the
money with which to pay the salaries
-of such lecturers. Inasmuch as the
officers of the department were unable
to make arrangements with extension
centers for Mr. Bemis to lecture be
fore them, it was evident from a busi
ness point of view that the work of
Mr. Bemis in this division of the uni
versity must cea&e.
' Mr. Bemis was more than a year ago
given to understand that it seemed de
sirable, for reasons recited above, that
he should seek another field of useful
ness. " '
Mr. Bemls' complaint was not that
he was asked to resign from the uni
versity extension staff, but that he was
not transferre*! to a corresponding po
sition on the staff of instructors in
side the university.
Soon after Mr. Bemis was informed,
more than a year ago, that his serv
ices were no longer desired by the uni
versity, one of the signers of this pa
. per was notified, by a friend' of Mr.
; Bemis, first by letter and afterward
verbally, that "if Mr. Bemis is not re
tained a newspaper agitation will be
begun from which the university will
not recover in a generation." The re
ply was that if this was intended as a "
threat, no more direct means could be
taken to hasten the termination of
Mr. Bemi3* connection with the uni
. As final evidence that the unversity
had no quarrel with Mr. Bemis' "doc
trines," we add that the university of
. fered to continue to announce Prof.
Bemis' extension courses in the uni
versity lists and to' give him all possi
ble assistance to make lecture engage
ments, Mr. Bemis to retain all the
fees, without • the customary deduc
tions for office expenses. This offer
was to hold good until Jan. 1, 1896, and
Mr. Bemis did not decline it until Au
gust,lß9s. Had he not chosen to represent
himself as a martyr, he might have
been • lecturing today under the au
spices of the university* although on
his own financial responsibility.

The above has my concurrence and
approval.- I think that this recital of
facts will be sufficient to assure all
candid persons who have become in
terested In the case: first, that no
. principle has been involved about
which there was occasion for public
.solicitude; second; that- the university**
twas guarding" Prof. Bemls' interests
In attempting to avoid the necessity
of publishing an official judgment
about the value of his services.

Justice Underwood this morning
