W. R. Johnson's energetic canvass
for the Republican nomination for
city treasurer is making trouble among
the German Republicans. They fear
that the Eighth ward manipulator is
going to carry the caucuses, and thus
preclude, all possibility of a German
being given a principal place on the
ticket. It will be an American for
mayor., whichever of .] the candidates
named is nominated, they say. No
Republican will dare contest McCar
dy's sovereignty over the office of
comptroller; and if Johnson defeats
Charley Horst, the Germans will be out
of it. One of Johnson's friends sug
gested yesterday that some bright
young German might be promised the
influential- berth of private secretary
to the mayor, on the chance of a pos
sible victory. ~ '..-*■■.'■ • .;..,

by the Johnson-Horst contest, and the
mayoralty nomination is not "unlikely, to
hinge on the settlement, of this fight. As
Castle has not been "making any effort hereto

either side of the fight for treasurer, and his

About thirty voters were present at a meet
ing of the Sixth ward Hebrew Republican
club last night. The meeting was held in a
storeroom .corner of Fairfield avenue and
Eaton street.. P. B. Doran braved the elements
to be present, and he made a speech. After
stating, with , seeming earnestness, that St.
Paul has been for two years the worst gov
erned city of which he had any knowledge,
the Sixth ward candidate entered on a disserta
tion touching the tariff and the excellencies
of William McKinley. He urged that, as
the Hebrews had come from countries that
the McKinley tariff discriminated against most
harshly, they should join in electing a Re
publican administration in St. Paul. Out
side of some further allusions to the alleged
criminalities of the Democratic city admin
istration, which he did not specify, Mr. Doran
confined himself to urging the election of all
the Republican city ticket after it is nomi
nated. _ -- -•- - -
C. S. Schurman was called out, and pro
ceeded to eulogize Mr." Doran as the candidate
of the Sixth ward. He believed him to be as
able as any man in St. Paul to discharge the
duties of the mayor's office, and felt that his
nomination is assured when the convention
. C. Colledge was Introduced as "the next
alderman from the Sixth ward." He mod
estly disclaimed the title, but went on to say
that if he ever held office the Hebrews would
be properly cared for. He said that in every
city where Republicans rule, the children on
the street are' not allowed to call Hebrews
names or maltreat them in any way, and
predicted that the same ideal state of things
will prevail If Mr. Doran and a Republican
council are elected in St. Paul. Mr. Colledge
made himself real popular by the liberal use
of blarney. **„ pA;AA.;.A..yAIA :":p
A speech in the Jewish language wound up
the meeting, and a small boy pounded on an
unstrung drum while the audience gathered

PACTS OP THAT FIGHT.
They Will Be Laid Before Judge
The scrimmage between Attorney Mc-
Laughlin and Attorneys Hall and Durment,
counsel for the defense in the Richardson
case, as suggested in yesterday's Globe
might be the case, is to be the made the
subject of judicial inquiry. Attorney Durment
reported the matter to Judge Willis on fhe
opening of court yesterday morning, and
wanted to know if the court could not give
some protection to the defendant's counsel
in the case. He said that McLaughlin had
assaulted Mr. Hall • with a heavy stick,
and might have done him great bodily harm.
Judge Willis said the matter could not 'be
made the subject of Judicial Inquiry unless
charges were filed. Mr. Durment suggested
that if it was not a matter with which the
court had any concern, he would consider it
a personal matter. This brought from Judge
Willis a sharp rebuff. He said:
"Counsel is willfully misconstruing the lan
guage of the court now, as he has frequently
done during the. progress of this trial. If
there is any further misconstruction, I shall
punish it as contempt"
Mr. Durment then explained that he meant
no affront to the court Ha said further, that
he had no direct interest in the matter, as it
was an assault on his associate in the case
and not on himself. He, therefore, did
not feel as though he should file charges.
He and Mr. McLaughlin had always been
Mr. Hall expressed humiliation at the affair
He had known Mr. McLaughlin favorably,
but had tried only one case with him, and,"
while he had been successful ln that case.'i
he could not assign any other 'motive for
Mr. McLaughlin's- acts than the case now
on .trial. He saw In the attack a determina
tion to deter him from the course which he
had been pursuing in. this trial, and it was:
for that reason that he called It to the attention ,
of the court. It was an indignity to the court
and to himself, to his standing as a lawyer,
and he should formulate and offer to the court
a sworn statement of the facts. The assault
had not resulted in any grievous injury.,
He had received a blow, from the cane on the
shoulder, but it did only a slight injury,:
which he would recover from in the course
of a few days. The statement would be made ;
in the course of his duty to the court. The
accounts in the morning papers had not repre
sented the facts, and he wondered where
they had obtained their information.
The court suggested that Mr. Hall would be
acting in the line of his duty by filing charges,
and an order was made that Albert B. Ovitt
and George E. Budd be appointed to assist
him. The right of Interposing an answer is
given to Mr. McLaughlin. y. ?■;..'*
Mr. McLaughlin denies that he struck Hall
with his cane, as does also Mr. Kellogg,
counsel for Edwards, who was an onlooker
during the whole time the trouble was going
ACTION OVER LAND.
Mrs. *Wllhelmina Rolfer Brines a
Suit Against Her Stepson.
Mrs. Wilhelmina Rolfer yesterday filed a
complaint in an action against her stepson,
Robert M. Rolfer, to have set aside a deed
of transfer to some property. The complaint
alleges that In January, 1895, the plaintiff de
sired to make a gift of two lots at the corner
of Maria avenue and Plum street to her two
stepsons, the one named, and Henry O. Rol
fer. There are two ! houses on the property,
which are valued at $5,000. The two lots
were irregular ln shape, and Robert desired
to have the property divided so as to give
him the part adjoining a piece that he owned
individually, and he represented to the plain-
tiff, she says, that if she would deed the
whole tract to him he would simultaneously
deed one-half to his brother. The transfer
was made to Robert, but he, so says the com
plaint, failed to deed a share of it to his
brother. Hence the suit.
Dismissed as to D. Rt Noyes.
The suits growing out of the arrest of John
C. Smith and others at the time of the sup
pression of the . Needham-Moore prize fight
last fall have been dismissed as to D. R.
Noyes." The suits were dismissed as to Gov.
Clough and Tarns Bixby some time ago, so
the only defendant now left is Deacon Wil

The proposition is this: Burt W. Lyons,
the editor of "The Commercial Traveler,"
which is the official organ of the association
. and -is published in St. Louis,. Mo., agrees
in consideration of the sum of $700, to publish
in 15,000 -copies of a special edition of the
organ > an elaborate write-up of St Paul,
handsomely Illustrated, and copies of the
paper will be sent to every member of the
association just before the convention, to be
held in Terre Haute next month. In case
St. Paul should secure the convention in
1897, then "The Commercial Traveler" is
to receive $1,000 instead of $700.
The committee of the Commercial club,

sent a request to the Jobbers' union and the
chamber of commerce to meet the committee
at 4 p. m. today at the Commercial club to

M. J. HAUSAM'S DEATH.
An Autopsy Failed to Discover the
. Coroner Whitcomb yesterday conducted an
autopsy on the body of Martin J. Hausam,
who died suddenly, under peculiar circum
stances, at his residence, 323 Charles street.
Monday evening. The physicians assisting
at the examination were Drs. Nippert, Fln
nell, G. V. Bacon, McNamara and Fitzsliri
mens. At the conclusion of the autopsy
Coroner Whitcomb said that it had not been
definitely determined whether Hausam died
from poison or natural ; causes. Portions of
tho dead man's stomach will be analyzed,
and until tfie examination has been made the
real cause of death cannot be determined.
It was learned, however, that evidence of ar
senical poisoning 'was developed during the
autopsy. The stomach was congested and in
flamed, and the mucous membrane almost en
tirely destroyed. The brain was also In a
congested condition and traces of arsenic were
found in the liver, while the gastric gland of
the stomach had greatly degenerated. *
Hausam's relatives do not believe the sui
cide theory, and express themselves as con
fident that an analysis of the stomach will
wholly dissipate the theory of self-destruction.
IN NO HURRY.
State Auditor Dunn on the Swamp
. State Auditor Dunn stated yesterday that
while it had been impracticable for him to
have any extended conference with the attor
ney general concerning the . next step to be
taken to preserve the state's rights in the
swamp lands on the Indian reservation about
to be opened, there was no doubt that some
steps would be taken. There was no hurry,
he said, as the state has until April 14 to
appeal from the decision made by the depart
ment. *•••'-*•.. Aa -•

vice, - the governor on Monday wrote to the

courses be taken, either that more direct and
specific charges of malfeasance be Instituted,
or that the matter be laid before the grand

ON SATURDAY, ONLY TO BE DE-
SERTED BY THE BRIDE MON- .
SHE WAS GOING TO HER AUNT.
She Had Loved Her Cousin, Who
Left Shortly Before She Did—
Last Saturday morning, Mr. and Mrs.
John Heron*,' 7 living- on James street,
gave their pretty seventeen-year-old
daughter Kate In marriage to Frank
Bonda, a well-to-do merchant of Dal
rymple, •N. D. - • There was a pretty
wedding," followed by the congratula
tions and good wishes of relatives and
friends, and all-wai as merry as the
proverbial wedding bell. Sunday even
ing, less than thirty-six hours after
the ceremony, the newly made bride
arrived at the conclusion that mar-
riage was a failure, and left her hus
band, declaring * she would never re
turn. ♦.; ?;;,■ ''. '-*,*-.-':
Arrangements had been made for the
young | couple to return to * * the hus-
band's i home Monday . morning, but the
trip had to : be called off indefinitely.
The newly s made Benedict was \at first-
surprised and pained at the action of
his bride, but upon the assurance of
her parents that the act was that of
a capricious and impulsive girl, and
that * all * would soon be well, concluded
to let matters rest for a day or two.
It was supposed the young woman
had gone to the home of an aunt, liv-
ing in <• the neighborhood, and would
remain with her relatives until mat-
ters could be adjusted. \
Inquiry at the aunt's house yesterday, how-
ever, developed the? fact that the young wife
had not been there at all, nor had she been
seen by any. of her friends. Alarmed at the
situation, the husband and the girl's parents
at cnce Instituted a search for the missing
bride, but not a trace of her could be found.
Bouda first met Miss Heroff at a New Year
party, while visiting in St. Paul, during the
past winter. • The couple became engaged, the
friends of the girl say, through the agency
of her parents, and the wedding day was set
for March 28. Two weeks ago. Bouda returned
to* St. Paul to complete arrangements for the
wedding, part of which consisted in the pur-
chase of a trousseau of clothes for his pros-
pective wife. ~A~ tinge of romance is given
Mrs. Bouda's disappearance by the state-
ment that she was engaged to one of her cous-
ins . before she met her husband, but that,
on account of her parents' objections . to the
young man, she married, as. many girls do,
the man of her parents' choice. The cousin
was present at the "ceremony and called upon
the newly wedded couple Sunday evening.
Shortly after he left the house Mrs. Bouda
threw a shawl" over her head, called her sister
aside, and tOld her she was going away never
to return. This was the last seen of the
young woman, and her friends are making
anxious Inquiry concerning her whereabouts.
Mr. Bouda will remain in St. Paul until he
secures some definite information concerning
his missing bride. " - • V < **'*

1 . EACH HAD HIS MAN,
So the Board of Public Works Could
Not Elect a Clerk.
The board ' of j public works endeavored to
elect a recording clerk yesterday in place of
Michael Foley, but after taking half a dozen
ballots gave it up until today. Commission
er Hare voted for Octave Savard, of the Sixth
ward, -every time, and William Banholzer
never deserted Frank A. Gles, of the Fifth
ward. . President Gorman and Commissioner
Quinby ■'. first •• voted for W. P. O'Brien, but
subsequently Mr. Quinby cast blank ballots,
while President Gorman voted for Mr. Gles.
Consequently there was no choice.
The matter will be settled today. In any
event Mr. Foley is slated to go.
Easter Sunday Concert.
Easter Sunday afternoon Seibert's orchestra

concert of this season at the Metropolitan

commodate the -friends and admirers of this
great musical organization at the last grand
concert of the season.
