KITTING COURTESIES SHO\*N THE
\\ I»IK\ OF THE LOCAL COM
RECEPTION TO MRS. NEWPORT
IS A CHARMING FINALE TO A GI.O.
RIOVB WOK AT HIIAO
COHPOKAI, TA.\IVEK'S ORATORY
1h Devoted to the Extolling of the
Work of the Chairman :iml
Never was more charmingly worded
tribute paid to the women of the North
than was conveyed in the address of
Corporal Tanner at the reception ten
dered Mrs. R. M. Newport at the wo
men's headquarters yesterday after
noon. Corporal Tanner said that he
considered it an honor out of the or
dinary to be enabled to congratulate
so splendid a committee of women of
so splendid a city and to offer con
gratulation to her who had led the
band, Mrs. R. M. Newport. He said
that he considered It a great privilege
of his life to be allowed to come here.
He had attended many encampments,
but unique and unprecedented was the
work the women had done for the G.
A. R. in St. Paul. He said that when
he was in Richmond he told the boys
in gray that if it had not been for their
women the Northern boys would have
had them whipped six months earlier.
He spoke of the noble work of the wo
men during the war, calling them
the "girls of '61." He was not too old
to bend his head in admiration to
beauty and youth. The young men
have the instinct of the bees; they know
where the honey is and gather it there.
But they must not be surprised when
the veterans call the women with fur
rowed brows girls. To them they are
still the girls of '61, and, while they
do bow to the beauty of today, they
bend to the very feet of the matrons,
the girls of yore. Corporal Tanner
was introduced by Mrs. A. B. John
son, who said that, though he had lost
both legs, he still had a voice and that
he wanted to tell Mrs. Newport how
beautifully he thought the G. A. R.
had been received by the ladies of St.
Paul. That Corporal Tanner had given
everything for his country and that he
had gone through two serious opera
tions, but that his boys had sent him
word that the shorter he grew the
more they thought of him. She ended
by saying that every one agreed that
the mother who bore him must have
been a woman of grit.
The afternoon reception was the
most brilliant affair of the week with
out a doubt, and was attended by near
ly every woman interested in the G. A.
R. work in the city. The women re
ceiving with Mrs. Newport were the
members of the . executive committee
and the assisting ladies were the chair
men of the various subcommittees.
The women receiving stood in line in
the reception room as on former oc
casions and took each guest cordially
by the hand. The women were hand
somely attired. In the dining room,
which wa|f arranged, with red, whit"
and blue flowers, refreshments were
served the guests by Mesdames Charle?
Dibble, Shinman and J. A. Whee*o.ck.
They were assisted by a number of the
young women of- the committee In
the room adjoining, Mrs. Edgerttfn and
Mrs. Bass presided at the tea table,
which was; decorated with flowers.
They were assisted by Misses Stephen
son, Horn, Bnnd, Lamborn, Timber
lake and tire Misses Whfte.
The day. was a great improvement
over the preceding one in the way qf
weather, but to avoid any discomfort
from the cold, bright fires had been
made in the grates, which gave an air
of comfort to the rooms to be gained
in no other way. Pleasant comments
on the summer's work were passed
among the women who have so faith
fully banded themselves together for
a whole season and carried on a work,
the Jesuit of which surprised even
themselves, it proved such a thor
oughly delightful success in every' way.
For the week at the women's head
quarters from the opening of the house
last Sunday to the closing of the doors
last evening, has been one of pleasant
features. Never before in the history
of St. Paul has just such a series of
social entertainments been carried on
and there is little chance for its trans
piring again, although among the other
pleasant things talked of during the
afternoon was the idea referrt% to in
another column, of the women's clubs
of the city securing the Kittson house
for club purposes. Some one suggest
ed the idea of buying the place out
right and Prof. Congdon promised the
proceeds of a concert given by the
Living Flag toward this end.
However the idea is as yet onl>
visionary. One of the pretty features
of the afternoon was the presentation
to Mrs. Newport, by Miss Jaquith, in
the name of the young women of the
Friendly association, of an exquisite
bunch of pure white roses, tied with
wide streamers of light blue ribbons,
the association colors. Mrs. Newport
is the president of the association and
the attention was a very pretty one.
Miss Hope's mandolin club was in
attendance all the afternoon and the
successful leader received many com
pliments on the work of herself and
excellent orchestra. It is not always
that a women's orchestra of so ex
cellent a standard may be found in
even more ambitious cities than St.
Paul, and the musical service furnished
by Miss Hope and her circle of young
players during the week was entirely
without compensation other than popu
lar favor. This is also true of those
who assisted in the programmes given
during the week. Ms. Dorr, the chair
man of the music committee, gave to
the public as fine a series of concerts
as has ever been given in the cities by
local talent, and some of the visiting
musicians were not unknown in musi
cal circles in the East. That the visitors
enjoyed every hour spent at the
women's headquarters there is little
doubt, nor is there any doubt but what
the fame of St. Paul women as hostesse
s will be carried abroad by the G. A.
R. guests and redound to the city's
credit. Among the well known men
who called at the headquarters during
the afternoon were Gov. Alex, Ramsey
D. A. Monfort, Col. R. M. Newport^
Cap;:. J. J. McCardy, H. P. Moss, Capt.

One of the Pleanant Events of tlie
Ono of the pleasan-test reunions of
old veterans was one that occurred at
the court house last Thursday, being
that of the First Minnesota heavy artil
lery. The regiment was originally com
manded by Col. William Colville, one
of the heroes of Gettysburg, and by
Lieut. Col. Baxter, now Judge Baxter,
of Fergus Falls. There were about
75 to 100 present. The lieutenant and
adjutant of the regiment was J. J.
Egan, now Judge Egan, of St. Paul.
Much enthusiasm was manifested by
reason of their coming together on the
great occasion of the Grand Army of
the Republic reonion and also by reason
of exchanging the friendly courtesies
that exist between old comrades amd
acquaintances who have not seen each
other for over thiry-two years. The
wonderful vitality displayed not only
by those present but by all the old sold
iers was a matter of noteworthy ob
servation. Walter B. Boyd was one of
those prominent in the matter of the
reunion. Judge Egan was elected presi
dent; Lieut. Ingham, of Lake City, rep
resenting Company A, and others rep
resenting the various companies of the
regiment, were elected vice presidents.
Henry P. Burdick, of Osceola Mills,
Wis., was elected secretary and treas
m-er. H. H. B. McMaster, of Eau
1 Claire, Wis., made an eloquent address,
and after exchanging friendly greetings
the organization adjourned until the
annual reunion of the Mirmesotfi veter
ans to take place in St. Paul about the
same time next year.
IS A GOOD EXTERTAIXER.
J. M. La Hue. a Comrade of Many
A feature of the encampment was
the presence, in St. Paul during the
week, of J. M. La Rue, a comrade of
Post No. 46, of Fall River, Mass. Mr.
La Rue is a whistler of almost national
reputation, at least among the old sol
diers, for he has been present and has
entertained the veterans at every en
campment for years. His imitations
are something wonderful. One of his
specialties is to sing, whistle, play the
banjo and smoke a cigar, all at the
same time. His most artistic work is
in the line of bird calls, and he can
do them form the Baltimore oriole and
the mocking bird down to the easier
imitations, to the life. After the war
Mr. La Rue was a minstrel for a num
ber of years and was with the Emer
son, Allen & Manning and Haverly
companies. In 1885 he put on the burnt
cork for the last time and since then
has used his art only for the amuse
ment and entertainmet of his old com
rades. He arrived in St. Paul last
Sunday and during the week his whis
tling has added much to the various
tampfires where he has appeared.
Colored Army IVnrse.
Mrs. Rachel E. Harris, of Marengo. 111.,
was the only surviving colored army nurse
who attended the encampment. She is the
mother of Mrs. J. R. White.
M'DO\OLGH IS BURIED.
(••Neil, Who Shot Him, Is Suspended
The funeral o£ Martin McDonough, who
died from the effects of a pistol shot fired at
him by Patrolman Wtlllam O'Neill, took place
yesterday morning from St. Mary's church.
Rev. Father Shea conducted the services at
the church and the remains were buried
in Calvary cemetery. Yesterday afternoon
Mayor Doran issued an order officially sus
pending O'Neill from the force. The order
reached the office of Chief Goss late yester
day afternoon and was as follows:
Officer William O'Neill, having been charged
with a serious offense, therefore it is hereby
ordered that -tie be suspended from the police
fore pending the investigation of said charges.
O'Neill was arrested Thursday evening and
locked up at the central station, charged
with murder. He has since then been kept
at the station and will probably remain there
until after the coroner's inquest, which will
be held Monday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock in
court room No. 5 in the court house. Lieut.
Boemex yesterday afternoon had an extended
interview with O'Neill and took down i-i long
hand a statement made by the officer, detail
ijp the incidents leading up to the arrest of
..icDonoug* and the shooting. Patrolman
Miller, who was with 9'Neill at the time of
the arrest, and struck McDonough in the head
during the scuffle at the box prior to the
shooting, will also be called on by Lieut.
Boerner to make a statement. The explana
tions of both the officers will be copied and
given to the firm of O'Brien & O'Brien, who
are to defend O'Neill. Another copy of the
statements of the officers will also be made
for Mayor Doran and handed to that official
While the verdict of the coroner's jury will
have no legal "Weight in the trial of the case
against O'Neill, the sworn testimony of the
witnesses will, it is expected, do much toward
clearing up the conflicting statements as to
what actually occurred at the time of the
arrest and ,at the patrol box at the time of the
A prominent official, in speaking of the case
yesterday, said it was a very unfortunate af
fair, but would probably have the effect of
checking the too frequent use of revolvers by
members of the police force. There had been,
the official said, a number of cases lately
where policemen without cause or reason had
pulled revolvers and shot at men who had
committed only minor offenses, if they had
committed any. 'Nothing had been said re
garding the indiscriminate shooting by po
lice officers in the public streets, and so far
as ho could learn no orders had been issued
either by the mayor or the chief of police
which would prevent future occurrences of
this kind. The fact that a coroner's jury
would investigate the case, the official said
was a good thing and if the verdict would
have the effect of instilling into the minds of
the police officers the fact that they were not
allowed under the law to shoot down or at
men charged with petty offenses the general
public would be benefited.
Special Policeman Rafferty, who shot at
John MeDonough, a brother of the man
killed by O'Neill, will, it is understood, be
called upon to answer in court for the of
fense. John McDonough, after hearing that
his brother had been shot, started out to
learn the particulars. He met Rafferty and
inquired concerning the shooting. Rafferty
according to the story of John HfcDonough,'
advised him to go home or he w6uld have
his head beaten off, and when McDonough
answered back Rafferty pulled his revolver
and took a shot at him.
AMUSEMENT AT WILDWOOD.
Free Vaudeville Show Said to Be
The free vaudeville performances at Wild
wood proved a strong attraction at that resort
last week. The Jarrettes certainly have earned
the praise bestowed upon them by auditors
who have witnessed their novel performances
with a company of brownies, and the fact
that - 'the quickness of the hand deceives the
eye" is splendidly illustrated by them in
their magic and sleight of hand. Paul Brach
ard, who is known as '"the anatomical won
der,' might well be termed the India rubber
man. for his contortions are simply marvel
ous. The merrymaker of the company is John
Shannon, who appears in black face. Lottie
Benton makes a charming soubrette. The
performance of Harry Deßells in mid air is
a piece of work that is certainly thrilling.
The comedy work of Frank O'Connor was
heartily encored. Those who attended last
evening's performances enjoyed a dance when
the curtain went down after the last spe
cialty. The same programme will be pre
sented this afternoon and evening.

And Yet the Crowds W«N Handled
Without s.-rious Casualty, Al
matat Hiihom Incident.
Yesterday the army of nearly 250
gatemen, baggagemen, porters, ticket
and passenger agents and special po
licemen on duty at the Union depot
during the week, took time for breath,
although there was still a great rush
for out-going trains on all roads.
Half of the extra force was laid off,
and in a few days matters at the big
terminal station will assume their
usual condition, it was the greatest
week for the depot In its history, and
the greatest six days the St. Paul rail
roads ever experienced. The figures
are something startling. The railroads
have reaped a handsome harvest out
of the encampment. Every line run
ning into the city had its just share
of business, and with the exception of
one unimportant smash-up in the
yards, there was not a mishap report
Great credit is due to Supt. W. F.
McMillan, of the Union depot company,
for the very able manner in which he
handled the crowd, and looked after the
rush generally. The managers of all
the lines gave the superintendent full
sway and directed him to make what
preparations were deemed necessary,
and that any orders he might issue
would be respected. The result of the
week's work sh^ows that the confidence
in the superintendent was not mis
Yesterday th^re^remained but two or
three people in the Union depot emer,
gency hospital/ and' these cases were
not at all serious. "This feature of the
arrangements : was | a great success.
Had it not beeq.lor the temporary
hospital, great* ftlfficulty would have
been experienced in handling passen
gers who were, taken sick on trains,
and those who were.4njured.
It will be a week before all the tickets
taken up by conductors are checked
up by the auditing" department of the
various roads. .When this is completed,
there will, vei^- likely, be some sur
prises in store for those interested in
knowing just how big the rush was.
Competent railroad men say that no
less than 175,000 people were brought
into the city by the railroads Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday. This num
ber doubled the population of the city.
The work of handling the crowd, with
the baggage which came with it. was
a job which would have muddled a
less cool brain than that of Supt. Mc-
Millan. Rough estimates are- all that
can be given at the present time, as
none of the railroads are ready to make
a correct statement.
The Milwaukee undoubtedly carried
the greatest number of people, having
four lines of its own running into the
city. That system, according to rough
estimates by its*' officials, carried 40,000
people, or 80,000 going and coming.
The Northwestern with its three lines
came next with from 28,000 to 30,000.
The Great Northern carried about 10,
--000, the Northern Pacific somewhat
less, the Minneapolis & St. Louis about
17.000, the Wisconsin Central about 20.r
000, the Burlington 15,000. the Soo 10,000
the St. Paul & Duluth 8.000, the
Great Western 15,000, total estimated
business, 175,000/ or when estimated
both going and coming, a total of 350,
--000 passengers. W T hen the official
figures have been returned by the
auditing departments, these estimates
will be liable to material change.
AS TO THE CROWDS
Caut. Castle's EMtimate of the At
Capt. Henry A^Cftstle, like all the others
who worked hard for fße success of the/en
campment, is satisfied that that success was
attained. • »v

"that on the daytof'tfcfe parade there were
200,000 visitors itU- St.- Paul, including the
large number that came down from Minne
