Chanel the Only Man to Spring a
Roorback., and That Wa»
Anticipated.
It's all over but the shouting. The
committees held their final meetings
yesterday, the challengers were given
: instructions, the judges prompted
j again as to their powers and duties,
! and the ward workers went to bed
| early to be about in time this morn
; ing to get out the voters.
At county headquarters of both par
ties yesterday there was considerable
activity, but there was little that was
new in the situation. Each side was
claiming everything— but there was
considerable uneasiness manifested
about Republican headquarters con
cerning the county ticket. At state
headquarters, especially with the Re
publicans, there was a feeling amount
ing to jubilation over the situation.
There was every confidence expressed
concerning the election of McKinley,
and there was no one who would ad
mit Lind's election. It was admitted
that Clough would run behind the na
tional ticket, but no Republican could
be found who would admit that Mc-
Kinley's majority would be so small
j that Clough would get left in the shuf
! fle. On the contrary, the Democrats
| are claiming that Lind will be elected,
I no matter what happens to their na
; tional ticket. Chairman Rosing still
j maintains a smiling front and insists
j that Bryan's majority will not fall
j short of 25,000, while Lind, he says,
will have from 5,000 to 8,000 more votes
than Bryan. John H. Ives was so con
fident that Lind is safe that he had
$100 which he was willing to put up on
his man, but he could find no takers.
As to the majorities in the county,
it all depends upon who furnishes the
estimate. The shouters of either par
try are willing to put the figures high.
But the Globe has secured from
those who are in a position to know
the most conservative estimates of
both parties. Here is the way the
Republicans figure the result, the fig
ures being majorities and the estimate
being the lowest offered at the county
headquarters:
JS** McKinley. Bryan.

But the Democrats don't see things
that way. They are confident that
they will win and that Bryan will carry
the county about as follows:
„. Ward - Bryan. McKinley.

Totals 3,350 2,200
Bryan's majority, 1,150.
The Republicans admit that Lind will
be stronger in the county than Bryan
find the Republican county committee
admits that it will have a hard fight
to elect its ticket. The showing is
therefore the more favorable for Lind
than for Gov. Clough, who, It is ad
mitted, will run considerably behind
his ticket. If McKinley's majority in
the county exceeds 2,000, it is likely
Clough will pull through— that is the
v ay the Republicans view the situa
tion.
* • ♦
Voters will not have to be urged to
vote early this year. So general is the
interest in the result of the election
that everywhere yesterday was heard
the expression, "well, I'm going to
vote before I go down town." It is
generally known that the full registra
tion will be out and that in every pic
e: net only the most expeditious work
will enable all who go to the polls to
cast their ballots. For that reason it
is safe to predict that the morning
vote will be the heaviest in the history
cf local elections. Another thing that
will hasten the early vote will be
stormy weather. There is no danger
that the Republicans will stay at home
as in former years because the day
may be unpleasant. They are aware
ot the necessity of each individual
vote, and there are none this year ho
unpatriotic as to place personal com
fort before sound money and national
prosperity. Therefore, the very ele
ment that in past years has been a
source of weakness to the Republican
voters will this year be a spur to ear
lier action. Only invalids, to whom ex
posure will mean serious results, will
remain away from the polls today.
Another thing that will hasten the vote
is that portion of the election law that
Rives to each workingman or person
employed such time from his duties as
may be necessary to cast his ballot.
I
CHAPEL'S ROORBACK.
He If* the Only Man to Resort to
That Thins-.
Chapel has acknowledged his weak
ness, and in desperation has caused to
be printed and circulated a statement
which he is presumed to know to be
ialse, with the hope that he can there
by defeat his opponent for the office
of sheriff. The Republican candidate
for sheriff, by this publication ac
knowledges that his boast of strength
was not based upon facts. To regain
his lost foothold he has allowed"" the
publication that appears below to be
circulated. The circular is as follows:
John Wagener was city treasurer of St. Paul
for two years, and is now a candidate for
sheriff.
While holding said office of treasurer he had
In bis employ as head bookkeeper and con
fidential advisor George Nettleton, who was
the leader of the crew that volunteered to
shoulder a musket and take a passenger train
out of St. Paul during the great A. R. U
strike in 1894.
THE FACTS IN THE CASE ARE:
First— That Mr. W'agener did not take the
office of city treasurer until the strike was
ended.
Second— He never knew that George Net
tleton had ever offered his services to the
railway company until the day before the
j spring election of IS9G.
Third— No committee cr person ever asked
Mr. Wagener to discharge Mr. Nettleton from
his employ for air/ c^uta cr at all.
Fourth— A comm-ite? of the A. R. IT. No.
214 has; examine**, the "ac*3 in (he case and
made a printetd public report of the facta
exactly as above.
Fifth — This ir.vccticalion and report was
known to Mr. CL -.pi-l vhen he lEsned* Ms
: <;reuiar t'ri.« mor-nHi**-- The report can. bo
I f.ur.d about any of the railroad- -sfeepev *
J Mr. Wagener had one experience
j with that same circular. Last spring.
THE SAINT PAUI, GLOBE: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1898.
when he was a candidate for city
treasurer, the circular was issued on
the eve of election, and he was unable
to reply to it. The result was "Wag
ener was defeated by less than 1,000
votes. To satisfy any one who might
renew the charges In this campaign,
Wagener had an investigation made of
the charges by a committee of men
who are most interested in the state
ments contained in the circular. The
executive committee of the American
Railway Union of St. Paul made a
careful examination of the charges and
reported as follows, only a few days
since, to their fellow members of the
organization :
St. Paul, Oct, 20, 1896.
To the Voters of Ramsey County, Minnesota.
We, the executive committee of the Amer
ican Railway union, of St. Paul, hereby cer
tify that we have examined the records of the
American Railway union, of St Paul, for the
past three years, and find that no com
mittee of the above union was ever appointed
to wait upon Mr. Wagener as city treasurer
of St. Paul and inform him that one of his
employes had in 1894 offered his services to
resist the railway employes^ who were then
out on a strike, or to Inform him that any
of his employes had offered their services to
the railway companies in any capacity what
ever; nor has any committee ever been ap
pointed to wait upon him and ask for the dis
charge of any of his employes for any cause
whatever.
Witness our hands and the seal of the Amer
ican Railway union at St. Paul, Minn., this
20th day of October, A. D. 1896.
(Seal) —William Matheson,
Chairman of Committee, A. R. U. No. 214.
Chapel's attack upon Wagener is the
first time during the campaign any
of the candidates have descended to
personalities. All the attacks that
have been made on Chapel have eme
nated from the house of his friends.
The figures showing his charges to the
county; the confession of one of his
deputies that he (the deputy) used
money to procure the defeat of the law
reducing the salary of the sheriff's
office; all these things have been
charged against him by Republicans
j who believe that another should have
the office of sheriff. Chapel has not
replied ln any way to these attacks
upon his honor and probity. He has
contented himself with reviving a
charge against his political opponent
that it Is alleged. he knew to be false.
Chapel is defeated and he knows It.
GIVING THE RESULTS.
Places Where They May be Heard.
Tonight.
Returns will be received by special
wire at a number of places in the city.
At the Grant" there will be a prolonged
performance of the bill of the play, and
the returns will be bulletined promptly.
If necessary the theater will be kept
open all night, so the management
says
At the Ryan the returns will also be
received by special wire. Manager
f-:eott has made arrangements to keep
bis patrons in touch with situation by
raeans of a stereopticon, which will
throw the returns upon a screen sus
pended in front of the drop curtain
at the Metropolitan opera house.
To accommodate the crowds that will
remain down to hear the latest news
tbe street railway company has made
rrrangc-ments to run late cars every
half hour after the clcse of the regular
service, the last car to leave the down
town end cf the lines at 2 o'clock, run
nmg to the terminals and then to the
barns. This will enable thousands to
learn the results ln all the Eastern
and most of the Western states. In
Illinois, one of the states claimed by
both parties, the polls close in the
cities at 5 o'clock, so that the result in
the state will probably be known as
early as 10 o'clock.
EIGHTH WARD MEETING.
Campaign Closed by the Bryan and
Lind Club.
The Eighth Ward Bryan and Lind
club held its last rally at Jarosz's hall,
Gaultier and Thomas streets, last
night. The meeting was called to cr
cer by Benj. B. Pohlman, who intro
duced Capt. Aaron Poupeney. He
made a stirring speech and was fol
lowed by T. R. Kane, Louis Nash, Hon.
H. W. Cory, Joseph T. Avery. Adam
Kruzewski addressed the meeting
speaking in Polish. He instructed the
people how to mark their ballots and
urged every voter to vote early. Thrse
rousing cheers were given for Bryan
and Lind and the entire silver ticket.
During the speaking Messrs. White,
Kelb- and Ellis entertained the audi
ence with campaign songs. Louis
Normandie closed the meeting with an
urgent appeal to Eighth warder 3to
stand by the silver ticket and Thomas
Martin for legislature.*
UNFAIR TO MR. DALE.
Statement in the West St. Paul Times
Nailed.
To the Public— The West St. Paul
Times, of Saturday, stated editorially
that I did the grading of Channel street
and that I only paid my men 90 cents
per day on that work, and that when
some of them wanted their money
pretty bad I discounted my own time
cheeks.
The whole statement is untrue. 1
did not grade Channel street. I did
not pay my men at that time as little
as 90 cents per day, and have never
paid as low wages as that. I did not.
at the time Channel street was graded
nor have I ever, discounted any of my
own paper after it became due.
— John A. Dale.
Saloons Closed All Day.
Owing to a typographical error, the pro
clamation of Mayor Doran regarding the clos
ing of the saloons on election day, wh'ch was
published in yesterday's Globe, read that
the saloons must be closed between the hours
of 5 a. m. and 6 p. m. Instead of 6 p. m. the
proclamation reads 8 p. m., which is in ac
cordance with the state law.
The Auditorium will be heated to
night, and the latest election news
every two minutes. Admission. 10
cents.
JUST LIKE THE SALOOXS
Will Be Most of the Public Offices
Today.
While today is not strictly speaking a legal
holiday, all the banks will be closed, and
official departments for the most part will
observe the day. There will be no courts,
except the police court, and the city and
county offices for the most apart will be
closed. The capitol, too, will be practically
closed, although the offices of the secretary
of state and attorney general will be open for
the transaction of business incident to elec
tion.
The public library will be closed all day
in all departments.
ELECTION RETURNS.
A Social Evening: at the People's
C'hureli,
The novel idea of giving the election
returns which the People's church are
j to carry out promises to be quite at
tractive.
Her2tofore the women were depend
! r.nt for their news upon their late rt
j turnine* husband, who was often too —
; tired to talk. This arrangement makes
j it possible tor tbem to enjoy equal ad
| vantages with more comfort.
The returns, which are as good as
the city affords, will commence at S p.
m. and last until some definite news
about a new president is obtained.
The (-veiling will be much enlivened
by tha good music which will be given
ty the Columbian quartette.
Coffee and sandwiches will be served
in the parlors below during a short in
termission late in the evening. It is to
be a fiee-and-easy evening, and the
pre gramme will be made entirely sub
erdinato to the returns, which will be
Hashed on the screen as early as re
ce'ved in the city. All the returns will
be given, and the perfect telegraphic
arrangements will give the news as
soon as it can be obtained anywhere.
PRESBYTERIANS DINE.
I
Ministers' Club Enjoy a Dinner at
the Windsor.
The first of tbe monthly dinners of the
Presbyterian Ministers' club was held at the
Windsor last night. The gathering was the
first that has been held since last spring.
and as is the custom, all the cler**-ymen of the
faith were the guests of one member of the
society. Last night Rev. M. N. Adams, of
Malacester college, was the host. Those pres
ent were: Revs. C. T. Burnley, W. C. Covert,
J. L. Danner, Q. w. Davis, M. D. Edwards,
J. P. Egbert, O. H, Elmer, L. P. Hill, J.
Hauser, W. C. Lairbe, R. H, Myers, A. B.

after hour was- spent in social intercourse.
CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR UNION
Holds a. Breezy Session at the House
of Hone Chnreh.
There was a breezy meeting of the
Young People's Society of Christian
Endeavor Union of St. Paul, at the
House of Hope Presbyterian church
last evening. i A number of very Inter
esting reports^ were received from dele
gates attending the recent state con
vention of the order in Minneapolis.
Secretary Ralph Squires gave the
fist of the most hiteresting points com
prised ln the report of the state secre
tary. The report showed that ther*
were 17,962 members of the society in
the state, and 7,916 junior members.
During the year 1,711 members joined
the churches. The largest society iv
the state is that of the Hennepin Ave
nue M. E. church, of Minneapolis
which has 217 members. The next in
size are those of the First Babtist
and Simpson M. E. church, of the same
city. During the year the order has
raised $22,406 for missionary and other
purposes.
Mrs. U. G. Moore reported upon the
Junior Branch and described ln graphic
language the Junior rally held in Min
neapolis during the convention. L.
F. Newton gave his impressions of the
state president's message. Dr. Jean
ette McLaren followed with a descrip
tion of the consecration service which
took place at the Exposition building
at the close of the great state con
vention.
Rev. E. P. Ingersoll was expected to
deliver an address upon Christian Cit
izenship, but was unable to do so on
account of an unavoidable misunder
standing. Gen. E. C. Mason explained
the matter and made a few remarks
upon the great work which the Endeav
crers were doing in promoting pure
citizenship.
Rev. John Pringle also spoke without
preparation upon the topic of "Good
Citizenship" and took the city of To
ronto as an example. He said that
actions which would be considered
proper in an American city wou?d be
regarded as a crime in Toronto, The
Good. The one burning issue in that
city at the present time, which was
g r „„.-.- than any other living topic,
was whether or not the street cars
should be allowed to run on the Sab
bath day. The innovation was now
being fought in the courts of the prov
ince. Toronto, said the speaker, had
the greatest per cent of church going
people than any other city in America
and perhaps in the world. The city has
a population of 195,000, of which num
ber 122,000 were found in church upon
a certain Sabbath, when a church cen
sus was taken. The people were en
dowed with a great respect for law.
Saloons were kept closed on Sunday
and there was no open back door. Rev.
Mr. Pringle did not think the question
of politics in American municipalities
would be solved until there was an
absolute divorce between city elections
and thorre of the state and government.
The attention of the people could then
te turned to electing good men instead
of politicians and boodlers.
SCENE SHIFTER'S WOES.
Thos. Mnlaly Charged With Stealing
a Harness.
Thomas Mulaly, twenty-eight years old,
employed as a scene shifter in one of the
theaters, shifted about in a cell at the central
station last night. Mulaly was arrested yes
terday by Detective Hollowell charged with
larceny. Ten days ago a $60 set of harness
was stolen from Allen & Co.'s livery barn on
Sixth street. The harness was disposed of
at a pawn shop, and found by the detective
who has charge of the pawn shops. From a
description given of the party who pawned
the harness, Mulaly was taken in custody. The
prisoner denies the charge, and will be given
a chance to prove his innocence this morn
ing in the police court
NOBLES COUNTY THIS TIME.
Beat Nicollet County In the Return

of Nicollet county has been the first to make
similar returns, but this time there has been
a change. Mr. Kendlen reports the collections
on school lands from June to November in
clusive, as $428.92.

the watchers of the illuminated bul

will begin to come in from New York
by 7 o'clock, which will be of interest
as basis of comparison with the claims
made by the members of the respective
party committees in that state. In
Illinois, too, the polls close early and
returns from that critical state may
also be looked for early. Locally the
polls will be open from 6 o'clock this
morning until 7 this evening. The
count will begin on the national ticket
first by the advice of the county com
mittees of the two parties. It will
thus be possible to get a fair idea of
the result on presidential electors early
in the night. The Globe will bulle

special arrangements having been
made to collect the vote of each pre
cinct in the city. The figures will be
received more rapidly than ever before
in St. Paul in a national election. Un
less the count is close in the county the
result should be known before mid
night. So, also, the state returns, un
less the voting be very close, should be
known before the last street car stops
running.
WILL DISSECT LADY SOMERSET.
Great Temperance -Woman to Be
Considered ln Thirds.
An interesting meeting of the Lady
Hcmerset W. C. T. U. was held yester
day afternoon at the home of the presi
dent, Mrs. C. B. Teeple, on Central
Park pl.ce. The meeting opened with
devotional exercises led by Mrs. Ad
die Bixby Upham, and the reading
ci the minutes of the last meeting fol
lcwed. The secretary read "Which Are
You?" a poem by Ella Wheeler Wil
cox. Mrs. Mary McMillan, superinten
dent of Sunday school work, was pres
ent and made a report. The district
cf the Somerset union Includes the
Sunday schools of Central M. E., First
Baptist, Plymouth Congregational,
Park Avenue mission, and all churches
en the hill. Mrs. McMillan and a com
mittee from the union will visit these
schools and observe the progress they
are making in temperance work. Mrs.
Upham made a report as representing
the comrr.ittee on middle of the montn
meetings. She suggested that the first
of these meetings be held on the even
ing of Nov. 16 at the home of Mrs.
Teeple, the subject of the evening to
b*..- Lady Somerset. She said that the
members of the union did net know
Lady Somerset as well as they should,
and that the meeting might be made
very entertaining. The subject was
divided into three parts as follows
lier birth place, parents, early life and
marriage, to be read by Mrs. U. G.
Moore; extent of her estate and extent
cf the work she has done in London,
to be given by Mrs. Rogers; her relig
ious life and how she came to enter
temperance work and her relations to
Miss Willard, to be given by Mrs. Up
ham. The subject for November was
f-uggested as "Science;" for January,
Whittier or some American author;
February, Russia, and March was left
open to be filled by some current topic
probably the new cabinet. The pro
gramme mapped out by Mrs. Upham
was accepted in full. The union has
two enormous boxes of literature
packed ready to send to some camp
in the lumber districts. The boxes
contain the very best of current litera
ture and popular magazines. The offer
cf Father Gmeimer to give a free lec
ture on temperance for the benefit of
the union was accepted.
FORFEITED HIS BAIL.
Fischel Did Not Appear for Trial
Yesterday.
T. G. Fischel, arrested with Wanda
Stone Sunday night for disorderly con
duct, did not show up in the police
court yesterday morning, and the $25
which he had deposited for bail was
declared forfeited. The woman ad
mitted to the court that she was
somewhat intoxicated at the time of the
arrest and also was an inmate of a
disreputable resort, but contended that
Fischel had no right to assault her.
The court imposed a fine of $10 and
afterward the woman swore out a war
rant charging Fischel with assault and
battery.
Fischel dropped in at the central
station last evening to have a talk with
Chief Goss and as he was about to
leave was served with the warrant
charging him with assault and battery.
He was somewhat surprised and said
that he had been told there would be
no warrant issued for him growing out
of the trouble Sunday night. He was
allowed to read the warrant and after
being booked put up $50 for his appear
ance in court this morning.
PRIGGE HAS RETURNED.
Detective Campbell Brings Back the
Florida Fugitive.

who left St. Paul in September last,
leaving behind him numerous unpaid
bills, arrived in the city yesterday in
custody of Detective Campbell. Prigge
was arrested in Dade City. Fla., on a
warrant charging him with obtaining
money under' false pretenses. The
complaint was made by Otto Smith, to
whom Prigge sold a half interest in a
saloon, receiving as part of the

Hamm Brewing company, however,
had a mortgage on the entire place.
Prigge was arraigned in the police

The detectives claim that Prigge was
located through an item in a Dade City
paper. It appears that a notice of the
arrival of Prigge and his wife was
made in the loca,l paper at that point.
So pleased was Mrs. Prigge with what
was said about her that she mailed a
ccoy of the paper to a friend in this
city. Both Mr. and Mrs. Prigge now
wish they had passed up the write-upT
M'LACHLAN WILL SUE.
Says John D. Rodger Had Hint Ar
rested Without Cause.
The case against John McLachlan
charged with the larceny of an over
coat valued at $15, from John D.
Rodger, was dismissed in the police
court yesterday. The complaining wit
ness withdrew the complaint and al
though McLachlan insisted on having
the case tried Judge Twohy ordered it
stricken from the tab and discharged
McLachlan.
Seen after the matter had been dis
posed of by the court, McLachlan said
he would art once commence suj.t
against Rodger for malicious prosecu
tion, laying the damages at $2,000. Mc-
Lachlan says there was no foundation
for the charge of larceny as Rodger
helped him on with the coat at the
time It was borrowed or worn away
and knew at the time the warrant was
taken out that there was no larceny of
the garment.
MOTION TO DISMISS
Taken Under Consideration In the
Bereiter Case.
The state rested yesterday in the
case of Emil Bereiter, who is on triai
lefore Judge Brill and a jury under
rii indictment charging him with em
bezzling the sum of $2,500 belonging to
Joseph Rothwell. H. Barton, the at
torney for the defendant, thereupon
moved to dismiss the case, on the
ground that the state had not submit
ted any evidence to prove that Bereiter
committed the crime charged. County
Attorney Butler made a brief argu
ment in opposition to the motion to
dismiss, and Judge Brill took the mat
ter under advisement, announcing that
he would render his decision tomorrow
morning, when, in case the court de
fies the motion, the trial will be re
sumed.
The defense proposes to show, in the
event of the denial of the motion, that
the complaining witness, Joseph Roth
well, compromised his claim against
Bereiter before he instituted the crim
inal proceedings.
TALKED OF ISEFIL THINGS.
Civil Engineers Listen to the Groat
Northern Experts.
The Civil Engineers' Society of St
Paul, at Its regular meeting held in the
city hall last night, listened to interest
ing discussions by the heads of tha
various shop departments of the Great
Northern railroad. Last Saturday the
members of the society visited the
shops and spent cons'.derabl? time
viewing tho work and the appliance--.
in use there.
H. PL Vaughan. mechanical engineo
of the Great Northern, addressed th*
society and described the various escs
of compressed air appliances for drill
ing, calking boilers, filling tanks, lift
ing heavy weights, cleaning car cush
ions, painting, etc. Mr. Vaughan said
that the introduction of the pneumatic
processes had effected a great saving
cf labor.
Frank Julian, the company's now
chemist, spoke of the methods of test
ing illuminating oil for its safety and
lubricating oil for its efficiency, and
also of the tests for coal and water.
M. E. McKee, the manager of tha
air brake equipment car for the in
struction of employes, talked interest
ingly of his specialty. All trainmen, in
cluding engineers and conductors, ar«
required to receive Instruction in the
use of the numerous air brake systems
and to pass a practical examination in
this department.
F. E. Hemstreet, whose duty it is to
make tests of all the construction ma
terial used by the railroad company,
furnished considerable information as
to experiments of various kinds to
which the materials are subjected.
Many questions were asked and an
swered, and the discussion of fuels and
tieatment of boiler scales became qu'te
general.

Mayor Doran Discharges an Officer
for Defective Eyesight.
Patrolman Patrick Mulcare, of the Margaret
street station, resigned from the police fores
yesterday at the request of the mayor. His
defective eyesight was the cause. Mulcare
was examined by an occulist of this city, who
reported that the officer's vision was only
one-fifth of the normal. Mulcare was not dis
posed to voluntarily resign, but. tendered his
resignation when informed that if he did
not take that course he would be removed on
the ground of physical disability.
Mulcare has served over eleven years and
a half on the force.
