BY CANOE TO ST. LOl/IS.
Boys Will Enjoy a I* tit quo Vacation
Two young men have chosen a novel way
of spending the summer. Last Friday James
R. Connors and William Adams arrived in
this city from Ashland, Wls., and after
vißiting the sights of the Twin Cities and i
purchasing what supplies were necessary, |
they departed this morning before 7 o'clock |
in a canoe for St. Louis. The young men
came West by way of the great lakes, leav
ing the steamer from the Soo and then pro
ceeded In a sail boat along the southern
coast of Lake Superior to Ashland. At that
place they hit upon the idea of taking a
trip down the Father of Waters, and although
late in the season, it was the only oppor
tunity they had of making the trip. The
outfit which they have is as novel as It is
practical. The young men intend to camp at
different places on the way, and accordingly
have all the accessories which are needed.
Their tent is made by the use of the sail
of the canoe and the rubber coats. To pre
vent taking cold by sleeping on the ground
a couple of heavy canvas cots are used.
These have wire running along the sides,
and at night are 6tretched between four
stakes. A stove in which it is claimed bread
can be baked is made like the common
"knock-down" tin lunch box. All the pails,
kettles and pans are so made that they fit
one Inside of the other, thus taking up as
little room as possible. The canoe has air
tight compartments at each end, in which
the clothing and provisions are kept, both
out of the way while on the river and dry
In case of an up-set.- The canoe is 18 feet
long and Is propelled both by paddles and
Stops of several days' duration will be
made at Lake City. Winona, Dubuque, Rock
Island and Hannibal, where the young men
have friends. About two months are ex
pected to be taken up with the trip.
PLEASED WITH VENEZUELA.
Americans Return From Their Trip
In South America-.
The party of gentlemen who went into the
Orinoco river country of South America last
February in the interest of the Orinoco Min
ing company have finished their work and the
majority of the party returned to the United
States. Fred L. Gregory, formerly of this
city, but now interested in St. Cloud, and
A. 0. Parker, of Austin, returned to MiD
neapolis Saturday morning. Mr. Gregory re
ports a most successful trip and that every
thing was better than expected. Only one
thing marred the results and that the "death
of one of the party. Dr. H. H. Rusbie, of
New York, the leader of the party, and Roy
W. Squires, of Minneapol's. are still in New
York city, arranging the botanical specimens
collected during the trip.
ONE FINGER LEFT.
Joseph Evans Picked Up a Fire
cracker Before It Explodes.
Joseph Evans, a plumber residing at 911 !
Eighteenth street east, had his right hand !
shattered early yesterday morning by a giant j
fire cracker. With several companions he I
was continuing the celebration past midnight !
of the Fourth. At Third avenue south and i
Fourth street an attempt was made to fire ;
one of the giant crackers. The fuse was slow i
in burning and was thought to have gone out. |
Evans picked up the explosive, and imme- j
diately the report followed. The thumb and
three fingers of his hand were torn in pieces.
He was taken to the office of Dr. S. S. Kil
vington, where the member was dressed.
That the politicians of the United States
have made up their minds that Minneapolis
furnishes the proper material for sergeant
at-arms and assistants of national conven
tions is apparent. At least this conclusion
is borne out by a telegram received from
Chicago by M. Breslauer. in which It was
stated that Police Sergeant John Leonard,
of this city, has been selected by the com
mittee in Chicago to assist the sergeant-at
arms of the Democratic national convention
which opens Tuesday morning. The news
was heralded with pleasure about police
headquarters, all the members of the de
partment being pleased at the honor con
ferred upon their fellow officer. Sargeant
Leonard, however, will be unable to go. as
he has decided that more imperative duties
demand his attention at home.

COMMITTEE WILL THIS WEEK BE
GIN WORK PREPARING EN
BECOMING A MONSTER AFFAIR.
AT LEAST A SCORE OF STATES
WILL BE REPRESENTED IN
PROGRAM COMMITTEE AT WORK.
Events Will Be Arranged So as Not
to Conflict With G. A. R. Do
ings in St. Paul.
The magnitude of the forthcoming
Northwestern encampment of the Uni
formed Rank, Knights of Pythias, is
but little appreciated by the public at |
large. Those who have given their ef
forts, however, commence to under
stand the Importance of this great Sep
It will be one of the largest things
ever undertaken by Minneapolis in re
cent years, and its success is already |
fully assured. It is with no little pride j
that patriotic citizens of Minneapolis i
look over the work already accom- I
plished, and this too in the face of
great obstacles and opposition from I
other sources. The encampment will |
bring thousands of visitors to the city,
and this event, taken in conjunction j
with the national encampment of the j
G. A. R. In St. Paul, the state fair, and j
the annual Minneapolis carnival, will ■
give the Twin Cities a gala month in
September. The Central Passenger as
sociation and the Eastern trunk lines,
in giving the St. Paul encampment the
benefits of a penny a mile rate, make
the Twin Cities the objective point of i
hundreds of thousands of people. In j
fact, during the present year, but one |
or two other cities in the country will j
receive such liberal treatment at the
hands of the railroads.
The encampment will bring to Min
neapolis 4,000 uniformed men, com
prising the brigades of Minnesota, Wis
consin, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky
and lowa. In addition to this, the of
ficers of the rank from North Dakota,
South Dakota, Montana and Manitoba
will attend, and from one to two di
visions of the Uniformed Rank will
come on from Kansas, Arkansas,
Texas, Alabama, Michigan, Ohio, New
York and Pennsylvania.
It is expected that other divisions
may attend in addition to the above,
and there is now no question but that
the event will draw visitors from all
portions of the country.
The work of local committees in se
curing the funds, and completing the
necessary arrangements, has been go
ing on for months, and the present
advanced state of the preparations
bears testimony to the good work ac
complished. From now on the com
mittees will have their hands full, and
meetings of more or less importance
will be held almost daily. This after
noon the executive committee will
meet at the K. P. headuqarters, at
3:30 o'clock, and Secretary Wheaton
has addressed a personal letter to each
member urging a full attendance. Sev
eral sub-committees recently appoint
ed will have important reports to
make. These committees represent a
dozen different lines of work, and be
fore the plans outlined can be carried
out, they will have to be approved by
the executive committee.
The committee on privileges has
prepared its report, and a report will
be made this afternoon. The list of
privileges to be awarded is somewhat
extensive, and bids will be received
until July 20.
The handsome pamphlet which the
executive committee will issue this
week will be one of the finest which
ever came from a Minnesota press. It
will be exceedingly artistic, and will
be printed in book form, in two colors.
The work will be profusely illustrated,
and will contain cuts and reading mat
ter of the resources of the city, the
manufacturing industries, parks and
boulevards, railroads, population, and
will also contain the official invitation
to the Sir Knights to visit the Flour
City. The edition will comprise 10,000
books, which will be sent all over the
country. Included will also be a full
statement of the prizes and prize drills.
In the selection of the site at Nicollet
avenue and Thirteenth street, the com
mittee has secured a plat which will
fully meet all requirements. The tract
embraces about twelve acres. It is
convenient to the trolley lines, is cen
trally located, perfectly healthy, and
convenient to all sewage and other
public improvements. The committee
on camp and grounds will meet during
the week to finish the engineering de
tails necessary in laying out the camp
streets, locating the quarters of the
commanding officers and other similar
details. The tents will be pitched in
such a manner as to allow of its widest
possible streets. It is expected the
camp will have to acommodate 4,000
military. One section will contain the
main headquarters of the generals
commanding, with staffs and aides.
Adjoining this will come the medical
department, which will be made as
complete as possible. A corps of phy
sicians will be in constant attendance,
and the hospital tent will be supplied
with every convenience. Near at hand
will be the quartermasters tent. The
mess tents will be located either upon
the Wadsworth or the Armstrong prop
erties. The entire camp will -t>e pro
vided with electric lights, and sewage.
The question of an adequate and
pure water supply has been a question
of not a little worry to the camp com
mittee. It has been decided, however, to
maintain fifty casks in various parts
of the grounds, each to be filled with
ice and filtered water twice each day.
Fire protection will also be afforded.
The tents are to be provided with
board floors. A new system of cots
has about been decided upon, which
will allow six or eight men instead of
four to occupy each tent. The scheme
is a new one, but its success is assured.
A patent new double deck cot is likely
to be adopted. Each cot will be pro
vided with woven wire springs, a mat
tress and pillows, for which the knights
will be charged fifty cents for the
week. In comparison with the accom
modations hitherto furnished at other
cities, the local arrangement will be
During the week the committee on pa
rades will meet and tackle its mountain of
work. The desire of the committee is to
so arrange the programme as not to clash
with the events ia St. Paul. The committee
will hold a joint conference with the man
agement of the G. A. R. encampment and
the officers of the state mliitia for this pur
pose, and also to secure the services of at
least a regiment of state troops to take
part in the Minneapolis parade.
The brigadier generals of the various Uni
formed Rani- -brigades in the states to be
represented n 1»J Minneapolis, have been in
vited to *om«i9t* this city July 14 as The
guests, of WlrtiSOoal committee, in order to
talk over the arrangements, and to post them
selves upon the situation as it stands at that
time. The visiting generals will doubtless
have many valuable suggestions to make.
Wednesday, July 15, the local committee
will meet with the St. Paul encampment

programme. Each city will work so as not
to interfere with the programme of the other

CAR IN THE GUTTER.
Novel Accident Completely Blocks
the Street Railway System.
With the brief rumble of an ap
proaching tornado and the startling
crash, as though of a building, an in
terurban car jumped the rails at Fifth
street and First avenue south yester
day afternoon, tore blocks of pavement
from their position and struck the curb
stone with a thundering crash. The
shock was a terrific one. The car was
moving at a rapid rate and the motor
man was unable to bring it to a quick
stop. Fortunately, but eight passen
gers were aboard, and the probable
consequences would have been differ
ent. As it was, the excitement was
j great, but the presence of mind of the
conductor in hastening to pacify the
passengers rendered it of a short du
ration. Beyond a severe shock and
fright, no person was injured.
The accident was an unusual one, but
due to a surprisingly simple cause. The
car, No. 546, in charge of Motorman
Cook and Conductor Raymond, round
i ed the corner of Sixth street onto First
j avenue at an average rate of speed.
| Directly upon the latter and quite clear
I of the switch, the double truck under
I the rear end of the car sprung from its
I position. Just what such action was
j due to is not known, but was attributed
to the swing of the body of the car in
rounding the curve, throwing the
wheels slightly from their proper posi
tion. The street between the tracks is
I laid with stone paving. The flanges
j v of the left wheels slipped over two
inches and dropped into the narrow
opening between the rails and the pay-
I ing. The right wheels of the truck ran
along the top of the rails..
The position thus attained was not
sufficiently pronounced to direct it to
j the attention of the men in charge.
I After a brief stop at the corner the
| current was turned on, and the huge
j car proceeded towards Washington
avenue at a good rate of speed. Two
reputable men standing on the New
England corner at Fifth street and
First avenue stated the car was going
upwards of sixteen miles an hour. At
the Fifth street crossing a piece of
brick lay on the rail. The first truck,
which was in proper position, passed
it without trouble, but the rear wheels
were given an additional spring and
the flanges cleared the rails.
For about ten feet they ran along
close to the outer side of the rail. Then
they began to separate from it, and at
a slowly diverging angle started for
the sidewalk. The rapid movement of
the car resulted in the distance being
quickly increased before the attention
of the driver was drawn to it. He
quickly endeavored to bring the car to
a stop, but not before the rear end had
swung and struck the curb stone. The
result showed clearly the force of the
conveyance. The body of the car slid
from the rear truck onto the sidewalk.
The king bolt connecting the truck to
the body snapped like a straw and the
springs were torn from their place. The
side protectors along the car from the
body down were snapped and broken.
The sudden stop would have over
turned the car but for the fact of its
sliding to the smooth pavement and
the remaining of the front end of the
body of the car on the fore truck. It
swayed threateningly as it was, how- I
ever, causing consternation among the ]
passengers. The position of the con- j
veyance, lying almost at right angles j
to the rails, completely blockaded the
tracks 1n both directions. No cars
could pass either way, and for a time
it was feared that the connection
necessary to accommodate those wish
ing to attend the ball game in St. Paul
would be cut off. Other routes were
utilized, however, and all the lines were
running uninterruptedly in a short
The work of getting the car back to
the track consumed three hours. Short
ly before 6 o'clock it was again got on ;
the rails and taken to the repair shop.
The blocks of paving torn from their
position by the wheels were replaced
and the scene of the accident was as
though nothing had occurred.

man, Esq.: My Dear Sir: On my re
turn from the farm I find on my table
yours of the 27th ultimo and the- beau

The view you express of the brave

among the nations of the earth could J
not fail to touch a sympathetic chord
in every American freeman's mreast.
That the day will soon come when

what has long been apparent to the
rest of the world — that a brave people
widely separated from the seat of their
parent government thirsting for lib
erty, determined to obtain it at any
cost are, and will always continue to
be a source of weakness Instead of
strength; an expense Instead* of profit;
of grief instead of joy to the govern
ment that holds them in subjection by

of every lover of freedom in all the
nations of the globe and by none is
that wish uttered with such excess of
desire as by those of our own country
who revere the flag our fathers defend

which our Cuban neighbors are now

AMERICAN COMMON SENSE.
Europeans Have Faith That It Will
LONDON, July 6.— A Paris dispatch to the
Times says at the Fourth of July banquet
of the American chamber of commerce on
Saturday, Hon. Wayne MacVeagh, referring
to the currency question, asked his hearers
to have more faith in America and Americans
than to suppose that she would dishonor hei
national credit, having pronounced strongly
in favor of the single standard.
The Times has also an editorial discussing
the Democratic convention at Chicago, and
incidentally Mr. MacVeagh's statement above
quoted, which concludes by saying: "We be
lieve still in the good faith and honesty oi
the American people."
Bankers May Appeal.
ST. JOHNS, N. F., July s.— The trustees of
the Union and Commercial banks contem
plate an appeal to the British privy council
against the recent decision of Justice Win

stock they hold. Nearly a million dollars
is involved of which they believe It possible
to obtain lialf if the appeal is decided in their
favor. TKe supreme court is expected to de
liver a judgment tomorrow quashing the re
cent verdicts by the grand jury finding true
bills against the directors of those banks.

Illinois found some of her delegates still
absent and adjourned its meeting until tomor

notwithstanding the absentees. The only at

Pattison, of Pennsylvania. The big parlor at
the Palmer is decorated with his pictures, and
few are in the corridors of the various ho

White Metallic Propose to Teach
Eastern Bankers Finance.
CHICAGO, July S.-Miesissippi's delegation
has turned the tables on the New York gold
missionaries and Is carrying the free silver
*ar Into the enemy's camp in return for the
efforts expended by the Eastern men to divert
the South from its loyalty to the white metal.
Yesterday a party of New York delegates
made a tour of the headquarters of South
ern states and bestowed upon the South
erners advice and admonition to turn them
from their course. Many Southern men were
disposed to resent what they considered the
patronizing manner of the Eastern men
toward them. To-day the Mississippi men se
lected three of the best talkers from their
delegation— Delegates Johnson, Cochran and
Hill— and instructed them to visit the head
quarters of New York and other Eastern
states, and ask for hearings to make speeches
for silver. Congressman Money, speaking of
the plan, remarked In a sarcastic vein: "The
ignorance of these New Yorkers on the finan
cial question is something-astonishing. They
seem to be ignorant on the first principles
of finance. They do not even know that bi
metallism is advocated by every political
economist in the world of any standing. We
are very hopeful that we will be able to turn
them from the error of their ways and make
them see the light. They can do no less
than give our representatives the same re
spectful hearing that we accorded to them."
TAMMANY EN ROUTE.
Deleerater Do Xot Think There Will
Be a Bolt.
NEW YORK, July s.— The special train of
twelve cars and two buffets, carrying the
Tammany delegation to the Chicago conven
tion, left the Grand Central station this
morning. The train was divided into two
The first section was In charge of ex-Sena
tor George W. Plunkitt. The second section
was in charge of Aid. John T. Oakley. The
delegates did not express much hope of being
able to accomplish anything at Chicago. Many
of the delegates, including Leader John C.
Sheehan, expressed themselves as willing to
abide by the ticket, no matter what the plat
form. The views of Mr. Sheehan were not
shared by all. John F. Mclntyre said: "I
think that a gold bolt from the convention of
all gold delegates would be the best thing
that could occur."
THERE'S WAR IX ILLINOIS.
Gold Men Denounce the Methods of
State Silver! tea.
CHICAGO, July s.— At a meeting of the ex
ecutive committee of the gold standard Demo
crats of Illinois the declaration was adopted
denouncing the methods used by the free sil
ver Democrats of the state. It was claimed
that fraudulent means were used at the Cook
county primaries at which delegates to the
etate convention were selected. It was also
claimed that the majority of the Democratic
voters were disfranchised at the primary
election, and that the victory in Cook county
had the effect of discouraging the gold men
throughout the state. The declaration con
cluded with a statement that the majority of
the Democrat* of Illinois were against free
silver and in favor of the present standard
of values on the currency question.

If there was any disposition m the delegation
to bolt, be replied that it was folly to talk
of bolting before the convention had acted.
He said they proposed to make the fight as
jlf it could win. Much Interest attached to
the arrival of the delegation because of the
announcement that six of the thirty dele
gates were for free silver. Judge Corcoran
said there were but three.

apd smoke. They occupy a large club
room on the parlor floor and have a
most gorgeous electric sign reading
During my calls I have found neither
sound nor money, which indicates that
the outside rabble are largely on the
side of silver, or else such an elegant
opportunity for oratory would be em
braced by the advocates of gold. On
calling at the Missouri headquarters
this afternoon, which is the leading
Bland department, the gentlemen in
charge told me that there was no ar
rangement for a general caucus of all
silver delegates, and if that plan ever
had any strength it seems to have been
abandoned. They told me that there
would be a Bland caucus tonight and
that Utah and Washington had been
added to their strength today. Illinois
has been claimed for Bland, but the
delegates, or many of them, did not
arrive until tonight, and are in ses
sion as I write, with the probabilities
that the majority will decide for Bland.
This will be the severest blow Boies
and Matthews have received. I occa
sionally meet some one who says Tel
ler has prospects, but I certainly do not
find it among the Democrats now in
Chicago. If he could be selected it
would make the pathway clear for gold
men, as they would have good grounds
for saying that this was not a Demo
cratic convention. The state of feeling
is such, and many of the silver men
arc so unreasonable and cantankerous
that I do not think the gold men will
lack for ample excuse to repudiate the
work of the convention on other
grounds than its adoption of a 16 to 1
platform. Later developments tonight
are liable to be of interest.
With the crowd already in town and
the clubs and delegates known to be
enroute the convention attendance to
morrow will far exceed that at St.
Louis. Chicago is absolutely able to
care for them and the natural thirst of
the city Is such that the normal condi
tion of the bars is sufficient to meet all
emergencies, without their enlarge
ment. Potter Palmer has done the
handsome thing by moving his down
stairs restaurant up stairs and devoting
the lower floor apartment to a wine
room. This was done without refer
ence to the Democratic convention, but
it proves a very convenient life-saving
station for the multitude. The only
additional arrivals from Minnesota to
day are John Moonan, of Waseca; John
Sheehy, of Montgomery, and J. F. Mc-
Govern, of Wabasha, all delegates. It
speaks volumes for the Minnesota De
mocracy that they so reverence the
fourth of July and the Sabbath as to
decline to be present or even travel
towards this wicked city, on either of
these days. I found the Ferris wheel
in operation today about four mile 6 out
on the North side, so that if they had
been here they could have taken a
heavenward journey, but I think it
was their reverence which has kept
them away. If they should arrive to
morrow the convention will begin on
Tuesday. — H. P. Hall.
POWERS IS RECKLESS.
Says a Panic Will Hurt Gold Men as
Much as Sllverttes.
CHICAGO, July s.— Judge Powers, of Utah,
is among th« delegates who received letters
from a bankers firm in this city in regard
to the effect that a free silver declaration
would have upon the business interests of the
country. In this letter, it is stated that
$4?l,000 have been invested through the firm
in Utah. Referring to the circular. Judge
Powers said: "If this company and the cli
ents of that concern do not care to play in
our back yard they need not. If they do not
want to invest in Utah, some one else will.
Their clients will receive whatever Is due
them, for Utah will pay dollar for dollar as
nominate.l in the bond. If these bankers
think they can intimidate us and prevent us
from carrying out the will of our constitu
ents by covert threats, then I say to them
that we were not brought up In the moun
tains f.o be scared by owls. If they intend
to help create a financial panic in order to
drive people to support the gold standard, I
have only to say to them that in pulling out
the pillars of the financial temple they will
bring the edifice upon their own heads as J
well as ours, and we can stand it as well as j
they. I think that the bankers had better
let us ruu politics our own way, and devote
their attention to business. Perhaps there
would be fewer failures."
WHITE IS THEIR CHOICE.
Sllverlte Who May Be Pnt Forward
for Temporary Chairman.
CHICAGO, July 6.— A secret meeting of
leading silver men was held at the Sherman
house today. The conference was devoted
exclusively to a canvass of the situation with
reference to the selection of a temporary
presiding officer, and the majority of those
present announced themselves as favorable to
the selection of Senator White. It was un
derstood, however, that the action should be
in no sense binding as to Senator White, but
that the selection should be finally made by
the full silver committee tomorrow afternoon,
after being passed upon at a previous meet
ing of the steering committee.
The committee first agreed that the can
didate should be chosen from the Western j
states, largely because of the general belief
that Senator Harris, hailing from the South,
should be given the permanent chairmanship.
Three names were considered. They were*
those of Senator White, and of Messrs. Bryani
and C. S. Thomas, of Denver, who were urged;
by their respective friends. Objection was !
made to the fact that Mr. Thomas hails from
a silver-producing state.
The choice of the meeting was favorable to
Mr. White, but, recognizing that the meeting
was not full, it was decided that opportunity
should be afforded between the three with
the recommendation in the order named. The
conference was utilized for a general dis
cussion of the probabilities as to the action
of the national committee with reference to
the selection of a temporary chairman.
The members of the national committee
present supplied what information they had
at their command, and the exchange of in
formation led to the conclusion that the
silver men would be able to control the com
mittee as to the selection by securing the
co-operation of a few members, who, while
they advocate the gold standard, take the
position that the majority of the convention
should be allowed to designate the chairman.
They count that there are 21 or 22 silver men
on the national committee, and their informa
tion led them to believe that they would
have the co-operation of Cummings, of
Tennessee; Howry, of Missouri; Jeffries, of
Louisiana; Holt, of Texas; Wall, of Wis
consin, and the members of the North Caro
lina delegation, who are ranked as gold
men. If their votes are secured, the choice
of the silver men will be ratified by the
committee, and the necessity of a minority
report and a contest on the floor of the
The advisibility of accepting Senator Hill
for the position was aso discussed at some
length, but the proposition was unanimously
"If Mr. Hill is a Democrat, as he unques
tionably is," said on the the men present,
"he will recognize the majority to rule. He
knows the train is coming and he must get
off the track if he does not want to be

Southern Delegates Opposed to Lim
iting It to Silver.
CHICAGO, July s.— Congressman Bailey,
of Texas, said today of the platform: "1
do not believe the convention will think of
limiting the platform to a single plank.
Most of the Southern delegates are opposed
to such a plan. We want the financial
plank made the paramount 6ne, but we do
not concede that the Democratic party has
become a party of one idea. It has changed
none of its old principles, nor has it lost
any of them, and the platform should reit
