Central and FlrM Baptist ChureJi
One of the most important meetings
that has ever been held by the Bap
tists of Minneapolis, took, place last
I Friday evening, when a joint meeting
of the trustees and deacons of the Cen- j
tral Baptist and the First Baptist
churches convened in the lecture room j
jof the latter temple. The great matter !
I before the meeting was a proposition :
i to consolidate th? two congregations, J
! making the Central Baptist church the i
joint place of worship. To make the j
meeting still more important a com- ;
mittee from the Westminster Presby- \
terian church was present to pave the j
way for a purchase of the First Baptist <
church, provided that the consolidation .
scheme materializes, and provided the i
old Westminster property finds a pur
chaser. The price to be paid would be ,
$125,000. No definite results were ar
rived at, but the matter will be talked j
over within the different congregations
during the week to come. In connec
tion with this it is stated that Rev. i
Wayland Hoyt has decided to accept
a call to a church in Worcester, Mass.

The first round of the salvage corps
battle has been fought. Judge Holt
yesterday afternoon resumed the testi-
I mony and immediately found the de-
I fendant, William Shephard, driver for
the Underwriters' corps, guilty ot fast |
I driving within the city limits. The ;
! court granted a stay of thirty days ;
I and announced that sentence would not ;
be passed for the present. He also in- ; '
■ formed those interested in the case j
I that the fine would lie simply, a nominal i
I one. He said that the case was one ]
I in which the public was but little inter- ;

the complaint he would have arrested j
both drivers and have had both fined. ,

Some of the residents along Oliver

Mayor ana ♦-"•"■.lister are once more
in conflict on the issue of law en
forcement. The ministers' meeting
at Plymouth Congregational church
yesterday afternoon called out about
fifty pastors, who listened to the re
port of the Congregational ministers'
slumming committee, and after a
pretty free expression of opinion,
agreed that something ought to be
done. The proposition was put into
the hands of a representative com
mittee, which was given two weeks
to formulate something and report
back to another meeting called for
The controversy has not entered
into personalities, and the principal
criticisms of the mayor yesterday
were that he "lacked sand," and
that he was influenced by politicians.
The gathering practically represent
ed four denominations. It was an
adjourned meeting of the Congrega
tional Ministers' association, and
special invitations were sent out to
the Methodists, Presbyterians and
Baptists. Outside of these four de
nominations, not more than half a
dozen were present, including news
paper men. Several of the ministers
wanted the scribes excluded, but Dr.
Wells, of Plymouth church, insisted
on everything being open to the pub
lic. \' : ydyyy.
Rev. John H. Morley, superintend
ent of the Congregational Home Mis
sionary Society for Minnesota, was
elected to preside. Rev. McKay de
livered an invocation, and the meet
ing, without further preliminaries,
listened to the report of the slum
REPORT ON A SLUM TOUR.
A written report was presented by
Dr. Wells.cf Plymouth clmrch.l. stat
ed the history of tine movement, and
the slumming work of the committee.
The Congregational ministers on Oct.
21, at one of their meeings, were
addressed by an outside gentleman
on the "habitual and cpen violation"
of the statute- prohibiting gambling
and disorderly houses and Sunday
saloons. The committe of three min
isters, Rev. George H. Wells, of Ply
mouth church; Rev. James McAllis
ter, of Silver Lake churdh, and Rev.
W. J. Gray, of the Opan Door church,
were appointed to investigate the sit
uation and lay it before the mayor.
Oct. 23- this committee waited on the
mayor, who "promptly and positively
declared his belief that there was
no open gambling in the city, and
said that if there was it should be
suppressed at once." As to saloons,
the mayor told them that the clause
about night closing was strictly en
forced, "but expressed strong doubt
and hesitation, not to say absolute
refusal, toward executing the Sab
In making the report Dr. Wells
said: "I wish to add that reliable
informa (___ has come to the commit
tee today that the gambling houses
have been closed all this week, be
ginning Monday night. ' Of course,
we do not know how long this will
last, and it Is not for us to rest with
thait. We must take up the violation
of the saloon ordinances in the same
IN THE DIVES.
Dr. Wells explained that he had not
gone on the slumming expeditions, but
that the other two members of the
committee were prepared to relate their
experiences. Rev. McAllister took the
floor and gave some Incidents of their
tour. Each of the ministerial gentle
men, he said, went with an escort who
knew the ropes. On the first night
they called on the main plant of the
syndicate, where they found three
faro tables, two roulette tables and
two tables which some gentleman bet
ter informed than themselves told
them were used for stud poker. All
these were in active operation. They
also entered the place at 306 First ave
nue south and the place at 312 Hen
nepin, run by the negro, Tyler, where,
in addition to the other paraphernalia,
was a crap table. At the syndicate
they found it very easy to gain an en
trance, though they were looked at
suspiciously, and the knowing ones
asked each other if that man was "all
right." They also, on the first even
ing, took in the Jumbo, now known
as the ''Columbia," their escort taking
them in at the rear door through the
barroom. They found fifteen or twenty
girls inducing men to buy beer, and al
most before they knew it found them
selves fairly on the stage. They also
visited the Stockholm Olson place, on
South Washington, where innocent
looking girls were dancing and drink
ing, and where girls and men were
together In wine rooms. : .T"'y
Rev. W. J. Gray, of Open Door
church, told how he went around on
Sunday evenings to investigate the
workings of the saloon ordinance. They
went into several saloons on Washing
ton avenue by the side door, where
the bar and the wine rooms were in
full operation. They just looked in at
each place. He also told about the
visit to several gambling houses. He
and his guide gained entrance to the
Maple Leaf club, on Sixth street,
where the guide lost 50 cents on the
roulette wheel. Here he was stopped
by a doorkeeper with the question,
"Are you a member of this club?" but
his guide helped him with the re
mark, "He's all right; he's a friend of
mine." This place, he Baid, was still
running full blast, and defied the au
thorities on the ground that it was a
Another pastor said he had seen the
high school boys going there in their
football suits after practice.
Dr. Wells remarked: "That Is the
way we must work, by Individual su
pervision all over the city." Rev.
Frank Sneed asked If the ministers'
committee would draw the mayor'
salary for doing this work. '"V .-. '
Rev. Gray was rather inclined to de
fend the mayor. The trouble was, he
did not see enough of the ministers.

SCORED THE OFFICIALS^
•Rev. A. B. Nicholls said: "The trou- 1
ble Is the mayor and the chief of-polico*
haven't the sand. Now, in our locality
for a long time there were two blind
pigs. Every one knew it. Men went
reeling out the front door drunk and
saloon 'wagons unloaded at the back
doors. We made complaint, the. police
said they could not get evidence." We
said we would go to the mayor, and
they told us to give them a chance.
Today one of them was arraigned in
the police court, but the other is still
Rev. Peter Clare, of Simpson "M. K.
church, said that every one had known
for a long time that a wide-open policy
was being pursued. The trouble was
the mayor was handicapped. There
was a power behind him. He could
not do more than the sentiment of the
people who put him there dictates.
Rev. Prank Sneed said that. Mr.
Clare hail voiced a very popular fallacy
in saying that the sentiment of the
people was not in favor of the enforce
ment of the law. The law itself was
the criterion of the people's sentiment.
Here Rev. Doran moved to appoint
an advisory committee of one from
each denomination represented to de
vise a scheme for the co-operation of
the churches In the matter, the com
mittee to add to its numbers from
other denominations and report at a
later meeting. This carried, and the
ministers of each denomination gath
ered together and selected their mem
ber of the committee. The committee
consists of Rev. W. P. Gray, for the
Congregationalists; Rev. W. P. Me-
Kee, for the Baptists; Rev. A. B.
Nichols, for the Presbyterians, and
Rev. Peter Clare for tne Methodists.
Rev. O. R. Jenks, of the Seventh Day
Adventists, was added to the commit
tee. H. B. Hendley, clerk of Plymouth
church, was made secretary of the
committee. Saturday, Nov. 23, was
fixed as the date of the next meeting,
and the assemblage adjourned. .'- ::
The meeting was remarkable as be
ing almost entirely composed of young
men or pastors of suburban churches.
Dr. Wells, Dr. Hoyt and Rev. Watson
were the only ones . present from . the
down-town' churches. Dr. Hoyt came
in late, with Bishop Perry, th*e Epis
copal bishop of lowa, who has remain
ed in the city since the convention. ." .
j THE MAYOR TALKS. \ ]- x
After the meeting the Globe man
called on Mayor Pratt, who manifeste.i
a mild interest in the transactions of
the ministers. -.-: : ;•
"Well," he said, after the . reporter
had briefly outlined what was done at
the meeting, "I have no fault to find
with the ministers so long as they ac
complish their work without getting
into. personalities. They have a perfect
right to go slumming and to get evi
dence and swear out complaints against
guilt parties. I hope they will "be
able to assist the authorities in doing
away with some of the evils that we all
know exist in our city."
"How about them in their advisory
capacity?" ~ -.- ' I «,
"Well, I am perfectly willing to re
ceive advice from them, although I
should not like to pledge myself to foi-'
low it. Ido not know what policy
mav determine on; perhaps it will be
practical. But there is a practical "side
to this question which they do not see
sometimes. If the people of this city,
wanted a minister for a. mayor-they
would probably have elected one. a I do I
not like to see them indulging in per
sonalities. They make an unkind and
unfair insinuation when they say that
the gambling houses may not remain
closed this week. And to the ins*.n*ua-_
tion that I am influenced by politicians,
though all right myself, I might reply
that the best of men can do v_j*y un
wise* and very unkind things by per
sonal attacks. If I am attacked* per- .
sonally I will have to take measures to
defend myself." _X' ; ,

Considerable satisfaction Is : expert'
ienced by the police department on ac
count of th? small number of lodgers
who make the central lock-up their
home at this time of the year. Two
years ago, when the business depres
sion was at its height, they numbered
between sixty and seventy on the aver
age throughout the month of Novem
ber. Many of these unfortunates were
persons who had seen better days and
who had been driven from the East and.
South to th? Northwest, in the. hopes
that they would be able to find work.
The situation was as bad in Minne
apolis as in any of the other great cities
and consequently they flocked to the
central police station by the dozen.
Last year was a bad one in th? number
of lodgers taken care of, but they did
not begin to come up to the inmates of
the previous year. So far November
and October have the banner record for
the last half-dozen seasons. The num
ber of persons seeking lodging in the
central station is far less than at any
time before, and as a rule those who
seek the shelter of the city prison are
worthy of the care, given them.
The total number of inmates of the
lodging house at the central station
last night was eleven, and thus far
this season there have not been more
than a dozen lodgers a night on thf
average. This condition of affairs is
said to be an Indication of the increas
ing prosperity of Minneapolis, and th-:

DECISION ON 'TONKA DAM.
Peter Sclium-ler Winn Everything
in His Salt.
Judge Elliott filed his decision in
the suit brought against the board of
county commissioners by Peter Sohuss
ler, in which the plaintiff gets every
thing in night. The trouble was over
the dam at the outlet of Lake Minne
tonka, and Mr. Schussler by the, de
cision is given judgment first for the
abatement of the dam; second, for a
perpetual injunction restraining the
board from obstructing the flow of wa
ter by dam or otherwise, and third,'
for $500 damages already sustained.
The caise was tried before Judge. El
liott some time ago, Assistant County .
Attorney Peterson and Robert*,'"*"*-.)
Evans appearing i for the county and
Young, Pish & Dickinson appearing
for Mr. Schussler. After the action,'
was commenced several attempto were
made to effect a compromise, which
finally fell through, there being but
half an inch of water between the i
amount Mr. Schussler would be will
ing to let the commissioners have and
the amount they wanted to flow
through the sluice gates In the dam.ii
The case will be appealed to the su
preme court. The decision seems, io
be based on the fact that the dam was "
constructed without legal authority."-^ *

ATTEMPT .TO DEFRAUD INSUR- |
ANCE COMPANIES COMES TO :
WHO WAS THE PLOTTER?
WILLIAM C. PATTERSON, OF AF
. TON, MYSTERIOUSLY SPIR
HE, .WAS HEAVILY INSURED.
yy :' , ...''....'
.His Aged Father Succeeds in Dis
covering His '■ Whereabouts *
and Releasing Him.
Early in October an innocent ap
pearing paragraph appeared in the
leading Minneapolis 'jr^iers. Briefly
summed up, it started that William
C. Peterson, aseiistant manager of
the Home Projective company, with
offices in the Temple Court, had been '•
drowned at Afton, Minn. Behind
'this panapraph or two there is a
aboiry scarcely equaled in romance. ]
lit shows the means employed to de- j
fraud insurance companies, and what j
an elaborate scheme had been Mt
upon by three or four well known
MinneapolKans, including an attor- j
ney, whose name has not been men
tioned in connection with the case, !
This plan, although it was elaborate j
and had many details, would prob- '
ably have worked without a hitch j
had it not been for one thing. There i
is a living witness to the fact that j
Peterson did not die, and he resides J
in Afton. In fact, unknown to the
intei-esterd parties, he was watching
their progress over the lake. • He l
saw the boat when it was alleged to I
have capsized. ' He was a witness j
of the fact that no one was drowned; [
itihait no one was thrown into the wait- !
er, and that the boat did not cap- !
Charles Peterson, the father of the !
young man, was in Texas when the i
information was wired by those in- :
terested in the fraud, to him. He]
was much grieved over the accident, j
and the mother of the young man be- j
came so ill that grave fears were *
entertained for a time as to her ,
future state of mind. Finally, after J
making all of the inquiries by wire '
possible, Peterson pere came to Mm- !
neapolis to see what he could learn. :
He went down to the district court to !
enter the estate of the young man in J
probate and there he j
MADE A DISCOVERY.
William C. Peterson, a young man,
had adopted a twelve-year-old boy.
He began an investigation of the
young man's -personal property, and i
discovered that there was $5,000 life j
insurance policy payable to the boy i
recently adopted. This aroused grave
suspicions that Peterson Jr.* had been
. the victim of foul play. Behind these
evidences of a beneficiary by his i
death there might be a reason why j
he had been put out of the way, and j
with these suspicions confronting
"Jim, William C. Peterson went over
to Stillwater. He arrived in Minne- J
apolis Oct. 11, and went over to
Washington county within a day or
'"two. ** -.
Charles Peterson upon investigation
' 'found that his son wa« still alive, and
"""no secured the services of George Sulli
van, assistant county attorney of
Washington county, who, with a Min
neapolis detective, finally got the party
into a hotel in St. Paul, where a con- j
cession was secured by the sweating;
process. The persons implicated paid '
the expenses attendant upon the visit |
of Charles Peterson, amounting to $200,
and the matter was hushed up. It is !
| not known whether 'prosecutions will ;
follow or not. Peterson Jr. Is in North- j
I crn Minnesota at" present. ".
■ Heading Off Any ..Dry Sunday
Movement in Minneapolis.
About a month ago the local retail
i liquor dealers' association adopted a
set of resolutions to the effect that
every member of the association should
hold his place closed on Sabbath day
between the hours of 10 and 12 a. m.
Furthermore, that no attempt would
j be made to sell liquors of any kind
during those hours; lastly, that the
window screens would be pulled back
j during the time mentioned, so that a
| full view could be had of the whole
j interior. The big breweries and other
| concerns interested in the liquor trade
I are supporting the. movement, prob
! ably fearing some kind of a crusade
j that would lead to dry Sundays of
j the same kind that New York and other
I model cities have been experiencing
ASHORE AT LONG BRANCH.
j The Irrawaddi Lost in the Fog for
, LONG BRANCH, N. J., Nov. 9.—
i Shortly befOTe 3 o'clock this afternoon
the steamer Irrawaddi, of Glasgow,
' from South America for New York,
i with fifteen passengers, a crew of
j fifty-five men and a cargo of 2,000 tons
' of asphalt, came ashore on the bar
\ between Third and Fourth avenues
j and now lies in an easy position in
i fifteen feet of water. Word has been
sent to New York for one of the com
■ pany's tugs, and it is believed the
, steamer will be floated without any
, material damage. At the time the yes
; sel came ashore there was a dense fog
■ prevailing. As soon as the vessel
i came up on the beach the life-saving
' crew was summoned and came pre
pared to take the passengers off, but
! all but one of them preferred to re
| main on board the vessel, the captain
, assuring them there was no danger.
; The Irrawaddi left Trinidad last Frl
; day and encountered foggy weather
i the greater part of the time. She be
longs to the Trinidad Steamship com-
I pany, and was in charge of "Capt.
I Francis Byers. In addition to the
I asphalt she has on board 500 tons of
| produce and cocoa.

! CHICAGO, Nov. 9.-The libel suit of
I ex-Mayor John Hopkins abainst John

REWARDS FOR BRUTALITY.

CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. 9. — The
Official Gazette announces that Bahri
Pasha, who was dismissed from his
official position in pursuance to the rep
resentations of the British ambassa
dor, Sir Philip Curry, owing to his ill
treatment of the Armenians, has been
decorated with the grand cordon of the
Osmanieh order as a reward for his
good services. This is not only an open
and distinct mark of approval of the
111-treatment of Armenians, but is a
deliberate snub to Great Britain. The
Official Gazette also publishes a long
list of the names of Turkish officials
in Armenia who have been decorated
by the sultan for their "good services."
, . It -is understood that the ' mali of
Aleppo, who is to be succeeded by the
ex-grand vizier, Kiamil Pasha, was
j dismissed in consequence of the repre
sentations of the United States min
ister to Turkey, Alexander W. Terrell,
because the vail refused to permit the
Unite! States consular agent at Aleppo
to visit a naturalized American citizen,
Guendjiam, of Armenian origin, who
has been imprisoned for life. Guend
jiam is now on hand in Constantinople
to be tried before Mr. Terrell.
The news from the provinces today
is decidedly bad. Advices from Sivas
