One of the reasons why the school
board was opposed to the use of the
buildings, or rather perhaps, why the
board delayed so long in consenting to
allow the buildings to be used, was
first learned yesterday. President
Abbott, of the board, wanted Gen.
Mason to assume individual responsi
bility for the amount required in mov
ing the furniture and otherwise pre
paring the buildings for occupancy by
the veterans, and for placing the build
ings in proper condition again. Yes
terday President Abbott learned that,
the Grand Army association is a cor
poration, and that the individual mem
bers of the association are equally re
sponsible with Gen. Mason for all lia
bilities. As soon as Mr. Abbott was
made aware of this fact he lost all
doubt that the board would receive
prompt and proper payment for ail
moneys expended in arranging the
school buildings for use of the veterans.

An estimate of the cost of Camp
Mason was yesterday submitted to the
executive committee by Adj. Gen.
Muehlburg and Capt. W. H. Hart. The
figures for the setting of the tent». and
the cost of all supplies and equipments
aggregate $1,200. One of the items is
for 3,000 candles. The tents are the
property of the government, and as the
regulations call for the use of such
light, and such light only in the tents,
candles must be used. The heaviest
I item of expense is labor. Guards must
be employed for the camp day and
night. These men will be invested with
j police powers, but the citizens commit
tee must foot the bills. Then there
are water barrels, wash basins, camp
| stools, and a thousand and one little
things that are necessary for the com
fort and well being of the old soldiers.
The item of closets is an expensive
one, alone. For water the committee
j has made arrangements with the fire

There are many remonstrances in ad

ccmplaints have been made to the
citizens' committee or others connected
with the encampment, of the annoyance
the sunrise guns will inflict upon those
living in the immediate neighborhood
of the camp. Most persons who have
thought of the matter have concluded
that an encampment without the boom
ing of the cannon at dawn, and the
single gun fired when the camp colors
are struck at sundown, would be to
the veterans much as a Fourth cf July
without firecrackers to a small boy.

guns, just at the hour when one likes

Thirty-four years ago yesterday the
Sixth Minnesota regiment was hustled
atter the Indians who, under Little
Crow, were ravaging and massacreing
settlers on the frontier. The Fifth
regiment, with one exception, had left
for the south and had pretty well
cleaned out Fort Snelling of clothing
camp, garrison equipage and ordinance
stores, leaving very little for the Sixth
to fall heir to. The one exception in
the Fifth was Marsh's company, who
was killed at Redwood, Lieut. Sheehan,
who so gallantly defended Fort Ridge
ly, the story of which has passed into
history— succeeding him. After two ex
peditions under Gen. Slbley the Sioux,
and a campaign to the South ending in
the taking of Mobile, the gallant Sixth
returned home to be mustered out at
old Fort Snelling on the 19th day of
Aug., 1865, just 31 years ago.
Sept. 1, 1896, the Sixth will hold its
thirtieth annual encampment at the
state capitol at 10 o'clock a. m. At 1
o'clock p. m. with other regiments
known as the Minnesota volunteer as

of Seventh and Cedar streets and take
cars to Fort Snelling. A reception will
be tendered by Col. Page, commanding
the Third IT. S. Infantry, and there will

Result of Too Much Two Step on
Two Young .Men,
A party of young people comprising
Frank Mann, Fred Clark, Margaret
Kelly and Rose Breslin were arraigned
before Judge Twohy yesterday after
noon charged with disorderly conduct.
Officers Gaul and Klima, who made the
arrests, stated that they had found the
young people all sleeping in a wood
shed in the rear of 64 Leech street, and
had taken them in charge. The Kelly
girl is 16 years of age and resides with
her parents at the place where they
were found. She stated that she and
the Breslin miss, who is but 14 years
old, went to a party last night with
the boys. They had been warned by
her parents to be home before 10
o'clock on pain of being locked out, but
in the mazes of the two-step, they, like
Cinderella, forgot the flight of time
and when they did return found the
house barred against them. They
sought the shelter of the shed, and be
ing afraid to stay there alone asked
the boys to remain too.
The boys were sent to the workhouse
for 30 days each and the Kelly girl taken
to the House of the Good Shepherd.
Rose Breslin will be held until Friday,
that her relatives may be seen as to
her future care.

Sergrt. Horn's Conclunion in a Sup
posed Robbery Case.
Frank Welch, an innocent from Pres
cott, Wis., complained yesterday to Of
ficer Skoog, of the Margaret street dis
trict, that he had been robbed of $15,
and believed that the money had been
taken by one of three young fellows
who were with him and had spent most
of the day in his company. When ques
tioned at headquarters by Sergeant
Horn, Frank said he had started from
Prescott with a $20 bill and had put
in Tuesday evening after his arrival
here at the Olympic theater. Yester
day he had met the other three young
fellows and had made a good fellow
of himself with his money. Suddenly
he discovered that he had no money
left and he knew he had been robbed.
Upon the advice of the sergeant he
searched his pockets and brought to
light a five dollar bill, whereupon Horn
told him he must certainly have had
his moneys worth if he only had $20
to start on and the case was dropped.

Mrs. Bridget O'Toole, who lives at
346 Market street with her daughter,
Mrs. Walter Curtis, was knocked down
and trampled under foot by a horse,
at the corner of Sixth and St. Peter
streets, about 3 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon. She was picked up in an in
sensible condition, from which she has
not yet recovered, and it is feared she
The horse was attached to a high
Concord buggy, in which sat two men,
who are said by those who witnessed
the accident to have been guilty of
carelessness, and whose subsequent
actions, it is said, were such as to jus
tify this accusation.
As soon as they saw what had oc
curred and without waiting to ascer
tain the extent of the woman's injuries
the men forced their horse to its best
speed and fled up Seventh street.
George Flint, who had witnessed the
occurrence, jumped into a buggy and
followed them, and there ensued a
most exciting chase. At Smith ave
nue the fugitives turned toward the
bridge, but after going a short dis
tance turned off again, and by follow

turning off often, managed, in the vi

The police w*re notified of the acci

men who had caused it. The horse is
a large bay, and. the buggy of the Con

men wore dark clothes and the other
a. red sweater ,with white stripes.
The woman, it is said, was crossing
St. Peter street' from the Cathedral to
the Conover mtisic hall, when the bug
gT came along St. Peter street and
turned into Sixfh.street. The witnesses
of the affair declare that the driver
had ample time to check the speed
of his horse iri time to avert the ac
cident but madfe no apparent effort to
do so. The woman, who was at that
time unknown,., was taken to the city
hospital. The. only mark visible upon
her body is a bruise upon the left arm,
but she has suffered a most severe
nervous shock and it is also believed
has sustained an. injury to the brain.
Mrs. O'Toole is a widow 60 years of
age, and occupies a portion of the
house rented by her son-in-law, Walter
Curtis. She left home yesterday about
2 o'clock without mentioning her des
tination, and as she was in the habit
of going out alone it was not until last
evening that her daughter became
alarmed at her absence. Inquiry at
police headquarters at that time led
Mr. Curtis to go to the city hospital,
where he identified the injured woman.

Appropriate Ceremony for the Dead
With ceremonies peculiarly appro-
I prlate to the calling he had followed,
I the remains of Burt Northrup were

; Calvary cemetery. The funeral ser
vices, which took place at the late
residence of the deceased at 2:30 p. m.,
were conducted by Rev. Father Colbert
from the Cathedral, and were brief and
After the burial service and a short
address by Father Colbert, the casket
was placed upon a hose wagon heavily
draped in black and drawn by four
white horses with sable trappings, and
thus in full view was conveyed to the
place of burial. The cortege, which
included a detail of thirty-six police
officers and an escort of forty-three
of the former associates of the deceased
in the flre department, all in full uni
form, was most Impressive in its char
acter. At its head marched the police
under command of Lieut. Boerner, and
following them, Seibert's band of twen
ty pieces. Then came the escort, headed
by Chief Jackson, and the strange
funeral car, which in its somber drap
eries gave little indication of its ordin
ary uses. Beside this singular bier
walked the pall bearers — Miles McNal

COMPANY SEEKS A FRANCHISE TO
CONSTRICT AJI ELECTRIC
FROM ST. PAUL TO SUPERIOR.
PROMOTER M'DONALD EXPLAINS
THAT MYSTERIOUS ORDI
IS NOT A STREET CAR SYSTEM.
Will He Built at a font of #2,500,

It was learned by the Globe yes
terday that the ordinance introduced
at the board of aldermen meeting last
Tuesday night, which grants a street
railway franchise over certain streets
in St. Paul, Is not a measure designed
to establish another street railway
system in this city. On the contrary,
It is the purpose of those parties seek
ing the franchise, to construct an elec
tric railway line from this city to
Superior. Wis. The ordinance, so they
say, was introduced for the purpose of
securing a franchise to construct ter
minal facilities for the main line. The
names of the parties In the ordinance
were published in yesterday's Globe.
They are Attorney Elmer E. McDonald,
Frank Spies, Charles A. Forbes and
Albert Allen. Mr. McDonald when
seen yesterday gave an explanation of
the scheme as follows:
"All we desire in St. Paul is to secure
terminal facilities for a line we pro
pose to construct and operate from
here to Superior, Wis. It will be oper
ated with electricity unless we find the
compressed air system better and more
economical. This was experimented
with in New York a few months ago,
when an ordinary train was ran a
distance of 10 hours in satisfactory
time, but the economy of the invention
has not. I believe, been demonstrated.
"In case we secure the franchise per
mitting us to use the St. Paul streets,
the company will be incorporated
at once and begin immediately to con
struct its tracks within the city, in
which event the work would be com
pleted this fall."
Questioned as to the identity of the
three gentlemen besides himself, named
in the ordinance, Mr. McDonald said
that Charles A. Forbes is a well known
civil engineer in West St. Paul, and
that Albert Allen Is a half brother of
his — McDonald's — who resides in Spo
kane Falls. Frank Spies, the remain
ing party, Mr. McDonald described as
an Eastern man of some means. He
declined, however, to state the place
of residence of Mr. Spies.
"It will require," continued Mr. Mc-
Donald, "at least $2,500,000 to construct
our proposed line to Superior, but we
are confident that the money will be
raised in time to enable us to begin
constructing the line next season. The
route of the line, after leaving the
north city limits at Snelling avenue, is
almost due north through Ramsey and
Anoka counties and thence north to
Cambridge, Isanti county. From there
the line will continue north to Mora,
Kanabec county, and thence proceed in
a northeasterly direction through Pine
and Carlton counties across the line
into Wisconsin and thence to Superior.
We also propose to construct a branch
line from Mora to Mille Lacs, a dis
tance of about . twenty-five miles. It
will be noticed that the proposed line
traverses a busy and productive region
that at present is not in direct and im
mediate connection with St. Paul.
Mr. McDonald was asked if he did not
expect that the ordinance granting the
franchise to construct and operate the
proposed line on certain streets in St.
Paul would meet with some opposition,
especially on the part of the street rail
"I do not see why there should be
any," answered Mr. McDonald. "As
I understand it, Mr. Lowry has no
franchise to construct tracks on any
streets not now occupied by the street
railway company, and even as to those
streets, it is not so certain that his
franchise is exclusive. Such streets as
he has a franchise to use are named in
the various ordinances which define his
rights. Our proposed line, running from
Second and Cedar streets, along Cedar
street to Central avenue, cut Central
to Lexington via Martin street, thence
on Langford to Hamline avenue,
thence to Snelling avenue etc., does not
include any street now occupied by the
street railway company except for a
distance of four blocks on Lexington
avenue, that, I think can be arranged
satisfactorily. The other line starting
at Second and Jackson streets and run
ning along Second to Third and
Wabasha and thence along West Third
to Franklin and thence to Chestnut
street and the river is to be used for
freight purposes, as it brings us in
connection with the Union depot and
also the freight yards of the Milwaukee
and the Omaha at the foot of Chestnut
Mr. McDonald said that the uniform
speed of the cars outside of the city
limits would be 25 miles an hour. As
for the $2,500,000 required to build the
road, Mr. McDonald declared that the
money would be forthcoming provided
the cities of St. Paul and Superior
would grant franchises for the oper
ation of the road within their limits.
WILD AND WICKED HORSES
"Will Be Tamed Tonight by Prof.
Gleason at tbe Auditorium.
Beginning this evening at 7 o'clock.
Prof. Gleason, the king or horse train
ers, will show mastery over the equine
kingdom by subduing a lot of vicious
and fiery animals that are owned in
St. Paul. Their owners are afraid of
them, and they are quite willing Prof.
Gleason shall try the powers of his
magic upon the animals. Some of the
horses, it is said, are as wild as if they
had just been brought from the plains
and had never felt a bit. The auditor
ium, where the entertainment will be
held, has all the G. A. R. decorations
in place and the big hall is a place of
beauty. The exhibition will be given in
