There was considerable activity about
Republican headquarters yesterday and
many callers from points in the state.
B. F. Howard, of Duluth, paid his re
spects to the powers that be. The Be
publicana don't give the Towne ad
herents credit for a great deal of sin
oerity and vice versa. According to the
Republican view. Towne is already
beaten and losing ground daily; while
the free silver people claim that Towne
is gaining votes everwhere, and will
carry Duluth two to one. There's noth
ing for the outsider to do but listen to
both tales and take his choice. Dar
Reese was also a caller at headquarters
and told of the high hopes intertained
by Republicans in and about Hutchin
s-on in McLeod county. Reese was in

A sound money club will also be or

The secretary was busy yesterday

Democrat? of the Fourth district do
not propose to allow the Republicans
to have a walk-away in the congres-
Monal fight. - There is plenty of avail

is rather an embarrassment in select

that have been mentioned, any one of
whom it is thought can win. There is
a strong sentiment in favor of Judge
Willis, if he can be persuaded to re
sign from the bench to make the can

party would be strengthened if the
candidate should be selected from out
side St. Paul. Those who favor this

Thomas F. Martin, of the Eighth
ward, is a candidate for the office of
county auditor, subject to the will of
his friends, the Democrats. "Tom" has
many friends in the party and as he
has been an active campaigner in the
past eight years or more, his friends
think he should be rewarded with the
nomination. Mr. Martin was a county
commissioner in 1890-92, and declined
a renomination when his term expired.
Eighth ward residents have tendered
him a nomination for the legislature
without opposition, but he prefers to

AHEM AXD MIRPHY,
Another Act Played in Their Long
Peter Murphy, against whom it had
been charged that he had spat upon
and reviled Officer Ahem and other
wise evidenced contempt for that rep
resentative of the police department,
had his hearing in the police court yes
terday afternoon before Judge Twohy.
Not only was Murphy discharged but
the court in passing judgment, took
occasion to censure Ahem in such se
vere terms as to move the officer him
self to remark afterward that he "had
been placed on trial instead of the
prisoner." Ahem testified that on the
day in question a gentleman com
plained to him of Murphy and he went
to a restaurant on Sibley street, near
Fourth, where he knew Murphy to be, j
as he said, to see that he did not j
cause any more trouble. As he stood
outside of the place, Murphy stepped
partly through the door and, after
spitting at him several times, did suc
ceed In lodging some saliva on his coat
sleeve, whereupon Murphy laughed.
Then he spoke to Murphy, who replied
by telling him to go somewhere. It
was at this juncture that he put Mur
phy under arrest. Two witnesses cor
roborated the statements of the officer
as to the spitting, and said that it ap
peared to them that Murphy was try
ing to spit upon Officer Ahem.
Murphy, on the other hand, declared
that he was merely trying to expector
ate through the grating on which
Ahem was standing, and was perfectly
Innocent of any attempt to soil the
trim-looking blue uniform or heap in
dignity upon the wearer thereof. The
principal efforts of the defense, how
ever, were directed to show that
Ahem, after placing Murphy under ar
rest, had laid violent hands upon his
prisoner and had used unnecessary
force. Three witnesses declared that
they had seen the officer strike Mur
phy with his hand and that the latter's
conduct had not been so violent as to
warrant any such action. Ahem, in
his cross-examination, had denied that
he struck Murphy, but admitted that
the prisoner might have received a
bruise which appeared on his face in a
scuffle which they had after the arrest
and which he said was caused by an
effort on Murphy's part to get away
Judge Twohy, in dismissing the case,
said that there appeared to him to ex
ist in the neighborhood of the depot a
rather unhealthy state of affairs which
was contributed to in a measure by the i
hotel runners. He did not think, how
ever, that Officer Ahem should assume
that those with whom he came in con
tact felt antagonistic to him and re
garded him as a public enemy, but
rather that he should take the position
of a protector of the public. As for
the prisoner, the court had some pre
vious knowledge of him. He had In
the past violated the law and had been
punished for it.but the ccurt could also
bear witness to the fact that he had
been arrested unjustly on some occa
sions. Because a man had violated the
law it did not necessarily follow that
he should be arrested and punished
whenever seen by an officer, and In the
present instance the court could see no
motive on Murphy's part to commit the
act ascribed to him.
At the conclusion of the case Murphy
remarked to some of the bystanders
that he was "not through with that
man yet," and it is understood that he
wiil make a complaint against Ahem
for assault and battery.

POSHING IT ALONG
CITY ENGINEER RUNDLET IN
CLINED TO THINK PAVIXG
AY ILL BE DONE}
IN TIME FOR ENCAMPMENT.
GREATER PROGRESS BEING MADE
THAN THE PUBLIC IS
FIFTH STREET TO BE ALL ARIGHT.
The Only Doubt Is About Robert
Street, But That May be Dnn»
Citizens who are observing the prog
ress of the work on East Fifth street
and Robert street, from Third to Sev
enth, are wondering how those streets
are to be completely paved before the
G. A. R. encampment sets in. Judging
from present appearances, the task
looks impossible to the average behold
er, especially in the case of Robert
street, where the paving contractors
have not yet begun to lay the concrete.
But the city engineer says that greater
progress has been made than the gen
eral public is aware of, and he Is In
clined to believe that the job will be
finished in due time. When the paving
contractors take possession of Robert
street, as they will in a day or two,
they will find spaces between the rails
already filled with concrete, as the
street railway company has been lay
ing concrete as fast as it has put in Its
new rails, for the very purpose of ex
pediting the work. Furthermore the
street is already provided with a bed of
concrete upon which the old wooden
blocks rested. The bed will need re
pairing In many places and also a uni
form building up, in order to bring the
asphalt covering up to the former level
of the street, but this will not require
as much time as it would to lay an en
tirely new bed of concrete.
The paving contractors are making
rapid progress on Fifth street, which is
entirely in their possession. The street
has been concreted to its full width
from Cedar to Robert streets, and the
same work is progressing at the lower
end of the street, where another crew
of men are at work. Furthermore,
the north side of the street, between
Wabasha and Cedar streets, which is
to be paved with brick, is completed.
The city engineer says that the as
phalt paraphernalia will be on the
ground today and the contractor will
begin laying the binder coat between
Cedar and Minnesota street. It is ex
pected that all the concrete will have
been laid b ySaturday night.
The Oakland avenue job is not quite
finished, but Mr. Wilson, of the city
engineer's office, says that it will be
completed on the 25th inst.

A case out of the usual run was
developed in the police court yester
day afternoon through the arraign
ment of a 16-year-old lad named War

cy. One of the principal witnesses was
Mrs. Mary M. Wallerick, who stated
that although she had taken Bowen
Into her home and treated him with
the kindness of a mother for six
months, he induced her 14-year-old son
to run away with him about a year
ago. The Wallerick boy has not been
seen since, and Bowen, when ques
tioned, said they had been separated
while trying to steal a ride on a train
from Chicago to Kansas City. The
police give Bowen rather a bad reputa
tion and he was sent to the work
house for 30 days.

STATE GETS THE ESTATE.
Daniel iSlcnlnn'x Heir* Could Not
He I omul.
After worrying along for seven years
in the probate ccurt and likewise in
the hands of the lawyers, the estate of
Daniel Riordon has escheated to the
State of Minnesota. During this per
iod the value of the estate has dwindled
from approximately $2,000 to $800.
Daniel Riordan died in St. Louis in
the year ISB9, leaving a house and lot
in St. Paul. The proceedings to prove
heirship began in November, 1889, but
no genuine heirs have ever been dis
covered. Some months ago an elderly
couple named Wolf claimed consan
guinity with the late Mr. Riordan, but
in the opinion of the probate court,
their claim was unfounded.
Yesterday, Judge Willrich closed the
final chapter in the case by signing an
order directing that the estate escheat
to the state.

man Lane, it is understood, will de
vote his time almost entirely to the
work of raising funds. It is expected
that the silver committee will furnish
the Populist committee with a large
amount of literature, as the latter
committee, like the Democratic com
mittee, probably will be hampered a
good deal for the want of funds. Sen
ator Faulkner, chairman of the Dem
ocratic congressional committee, speak
ing of the lack of funds tonight, did
not hesitate to say that the sources of
revenue in past campaigns, principally
in New York city, had not and would
not respond, and that the committee
would have to depend on small con
tributions from the people.
Chairman Butler, of the Populist
committee, was asked the following
"In view of your statement yester
day to the effect that the Populist can
didates are Bryan and Watson, and
will be until the close of the campaign,
and will be earnestly supported to the
end without discriminations for or
against either, what will be the posi
tion of your committee with reference
to those states where Democrats and
Populists have fused by the latter tak
ing the state ticket and the former
all of the electoral ticket?"
"We have no official information,"
he replied, "that this has been done
in any state, but if it has been done or
is contemplated, the national committee
will not approve or recognize it. The
highest law in any party is the action
of its national convention. No organiz
ation can be disloyal to such supreme
authority, without arraying itself in
direct and hostile opposition to the
national convention. Our national con
vention nominated Bryan and Watson
by an overwhelming majority and it
is the duty of every loyal Populist to
support both of these candidates earn
estly and loyally, and besides, Watson
stands for what Bryan stands for, and
therefore Bryan and Watson is the on
ly ticket that represents the principles
that the People's party believes in,
and has contended for from the be
ginning. Mr. Sewall is no more the
candidate of the People's party than is
Mr. Hobart. The executive committee
will see that the action of our national
convention is maintained in every
state, but if there should arise dis
affection or disloyalty to either of our
candidates in any state, then we are
sr.re that there are true Populists In
such state who will support the whole
ticket, and such alone will be recognized
by our national committee."
"Does this mean you will insist upon
a straight-out Bryan and Watson ticket
In every state?"
"No, but it means that wherever
Populists and Democrats join forces on
the electoral ticket that there must be
a due and proper recognition of each
party's candidate by a just and equit
able division of electors supporting the
candidates of the respective parties."
Senator Butler was asked what effect
this announcement would have upon the
fusion in Kansas, where the Populists
took the state ticket and the Demo
crats the electlral ticket, but he de
clined to go into specific details, saying
that his announcement related to the
general policy of the committee. The !
statement of Mr. Butler was said to be j
the unanimous expression of the com
Branch Headquarter* to Be Opened
WASHINGTON, Aug. 19.— The exec
utive committee of the Populists de-
cided today to establish a branch
headquarters at Chicago, which will be
in charge of George M. Washburn, of
Massachusetts, the main headquarters
to remain at Washington. The com
mittee also selected a finance commit
tee for. the campaign, consisting of H.
W. Reed, of Georgia; C. F. Taylor, of
Philadelphia, and Treasurer Rankin, of
Indiana. Chairman Butler will be giv
en full control of the Populist cam
paign, and in addition he will be chair
man of the Populist congressional cam
paign committee. The silver party,
the Populist party and the Democratic
party have tried to make arrangements
to have headquarters in this city in the
same building. Partial arrangements
have been made but there is a little
hitch on terms with the agent of the
Chairman Faulkner, of the Demo
cratic congressional committee, says
that the committee will not put any
speakers in the field until after the
first of September. He says that the
committee is short qf funds and can
not send many speakers out, but must
rely largely upon literature to reach
the people. Vice Chairman Stevens,
of the silver party, said today there
would be a branch headquarters of the
silver committee at Chicago, which
would look after the Western states
campaign, especially as to the speak
ers. It is the intention of the commit
tee to send from Washington a great
deal of literature and give special at
tention to the organization of cam
paign clubs of silver Republicans who
will support Bryan.
