One of the Big Events of the
Of all the bazars and fairs which
will beguile the shopping public to part
with its Christmas money, the pros
pective event of the Minneapolis Kin
dergarten association, which will be
inaugurated next week Thursday,
promises to be the most alluring in
kind, size and character. The great
bazar for which the women of tin
association are preparing, and toward
which they have been directing then
efforts during the last few months, will
Le the culmination of their endeavors.
It will occupy the last three days o_
the week, beginning Dec. 3, and will
have the old Grand opera house on
Sixth street as the theater of action.
The first definite steps toward fitting
the interior of the old Grand for its
office as a bazar were taken yester
day afternoon, when two or three of
the women met in the dimness of tm*
auditorium to discuss decorations, fur
nishings and entertainment. Last year
the first annual bazar of the kinder
garten association took place at the
residence of Mrs. Thomas Lowry, and
proved an unequivocal success. This
year's fair will be conducted on a much
larger and more conspicuous scale. The
place will be the resort of shoppers at
all hours during the day, for the house
will be open from 10 o'clock in the
morning through the evening. There
is talk of a ball for Saturdayifeyening,
following an auction of artistes re
maining unsold, which will bring the
bazar to a brilliant close.
Every sort of Christmas fancy will
be placed on the sale tables, and every
available idea has been made market
able for the various booths. A feature
of the decoration will be four large
evergreen trees hung with dolls of
every description, age and condition,
set around with furnishings of the
most bewitching make and style, fitted
to adorn the home of any and every
doll. Mrs. F. B. Semple and Mrs. Mor
ris Hallowell have charge of the dolls
and their outfits. Fancy work tables
offering innumerable, indescribable
and bewildering trifles will be super
intended by Mrs. Lowry and Mrs. W.
Mrs. Arson B. Jackson will preside
over culinary attractions, which will
include dainties for the table, sweets
for the pantry and good things for the
larder. Mrs. Lucien Swift will super
vise the paper booths, which will be
arranged in the old proscenium boxes,
and what exquisite fancies have not
been fashioned from paper by the
clever fingers at work many weeks,
cannot be thought of in a trice. Mrs.
W. R. Gregory and Mrs. F. B. For
man will preside over the tables which
will be laden with innumerable baskets,
odd, quaint, fancy, foreign, of all
shapes and patterns. Miss Ireys has
charge of the confections.
Each of these women will be as
sisted by groups of young matrons and
society girls. The interior of the Grand
opera house will be beautified and
adorned, and will become a veritable
bower of loveliness, all for sweet char

WATCHMAN WILLIAM HARTLEY
STRUCK DOWN IN HIS FLAG
GREAT DENTS IN HIS SKULL
SHOW WHERE THE MURDEROUS
BLOWS WITH A WRENCH
SO CLUE TO THE MURDERER.
Complete Mystery Surrounds the
Deed as Xo Motive for the Crime
Lying nearly prostrate on the floor
j of a little flag tower house twenty feet
J from the ground at Marshall street
i northeast and the N. P. tracks, the
; body of William Bartly was found yes
j terday morning about 10 o'clock |
Coroner Kistler was notified early,
I and proceeded to the scene of the sup
! posed murder. He found the man dead,
and by his side was a long monkey
j wrench covered with blood. It is sup- }
posed that the murder was committed ;
| vi ith the heavy weapon, but for what
i reason the detectives are at a complete
! loss to state.
j The last persons that are reported to
have seen Bartley were O'Brien, a sec
tion boss, and several section men.
None of them could be found this
.morning. John Kubiac, a special po
liceman, stated that .he passed the
j tower at about 6:45, and Bartley called
out to him to bring him a scuttle of
coal He did so and then left, going
across the bridge to where he was sta
tioned. It was after this that O'Brien
and his men saw him.
That something out of the usual had
taken place was discovered by William
Roske, a printer, residing at 1601 Mar
shall street. When he arose this morn
ing at about 8 o'clock he happened to
look out of his window which gave him
a good view of the tower and of the
j tracks. Just about that time a switch
j engine passed, and he noticed that the
j gates did not go down. He thought it
j rather strange, but paid no further at
j tention to it until about 9:15 o'clock.
i He then decided that something was
"I then left the house," said Mr.
j Roske, "ran to the tower, saw that the
j trap door was shut, but not locked. I
| was frightened. I then ran half-way
i across the bridge and called John Ku
biac. We came back and he told me
I to go up in the tower and see what
j was the matter with Bartley. I did so,
and looking in saw him lying on the
floor. I descended the ladder quickly
and told John that he was dead. I
left John there and telephoned for the
coroner. When I came back several
men were up looking at him."
That is all Mr. Roske knew about
the matter. He stated that Bartley had
a rather quick temper and was easily
made angry. Mr. Roske did not know
of any enemies that Bartley had, and
it is said that the old man was well
When the coroner arrived, the body
was ""found in a sitting posture in the
north end of the little structure which
is about 4by 5 feet. Between him and
the trap door was a chair. A stove
was in the south end and by it stood a
full scuttle of coal. The air pump
which worked the gates was in the
southeast end of the room. Just above
the man's head was hung his pail with
his breakfast, which was still un
touched. The floor in front of the stove
and by the coal scuttle was sprinkled
with blood. There was no evidence of
a struggle. The shelf upon which the
wrench was found extended around the
northwest end of the room.
The body was at once removed to
the morgue, where the wounds were
examined. Three ugly cuts or bruises
on the head indicate beyond any sha
dow of doubt that death was due to
foul play. One of the wounds, prob
ably the fatal one, is on the left side
of the skull two inches directly above
the ear. It was less than an inch in
length and penetrated to the bone. It
was quite impossible to determine if
the skull was fractured. The wound
could have caused death by concus
sion even if the skull was not fractured.
At the end of the right eyebrow on the
corner of the skull was another bruised
and bloody wound, the cut extending to
the bone. About an inch directly
back of the left eye over the temple
was a bad contusion or bruise nearly
round and somewhat swollen. There
was no gaping cut, however, as in the
other two marks of violence.

WASHBURN WAS AT CANTON.
Says No Promises of Cabinet Po
sitions Have Been Made.
Ex-Senator Washburn returned home
yesterday from his business trip to
New York and New England. Of his
visit to Canton on Thanksgiving da>
Mr. Washburn talked quite freely.
"Mr. MeKinley wants first of all and
above all to be a good president," said
he. "Beyond this he has no ambition.
No feelings of a personal nature will
be allowed to interfere with his pur
pose along this line, and lt is my opin
ion that in all matters of appointments,
from members of the cabinet down, he
will act with reference to the future
rather than the past. He wants to
gather around him in the cabinet men
who will make that cabinet historic,
and give it full rank with the best cab
inets in the history of the country. This
being true, it will be his purpose to
select the very best men in the coun
try for cabinet positions— men whose
very presence at his counsel board will
at once establish his administration
among the whole people, and bring lt
the confidence and support of men of
all forms of political belief. Mr. Me-
Kinley makes no secret of this matter,
and he assured me that there was ab
solutely no foundation for the numer
ous and varied cabinet guesses that are
going the rounds of the press and politi
cians. He has not, even by implication,
made a single cabinet pledge. Not only
is this true, but it also true that he has
not yet settled ln his own mind upon
any man whom he will ask to become
a member of his official family. In all
probability there will be few, if any
decisions in this direction before March.
So much more than usual is depending
this time upon the selection of a cab
inet, so much more as to the country
as well as to the Republican party, that
the president-elect, fully alive to the
weight of responsibility which is rest
ing upon him for both, very wisely has
made up his mind to go slowly. I pre
dict that every cabinet officer will be
a man of national reputation, of proved
ability, of wide experience, and pos
sessed of a character that will bring
a prompt approval from the publto ot
THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1890.
the president's choice. Mr. MeKinley
believes in the strength of first im
pressions, and that belief will, as 1
firmly believe, find public expression in
the selection of a cabinet that will in
every essential feature come up to the
popular thought as to what such a
body of men should be.
"You may want to ask me what about
Merriam? There is nothing to indicate
that Mr. MeKinley ever- has thought
of him in connection with a cabinet
appointment, but if he had, Merriam
could hardly come up to the high stand
ard which I know is being set at Can
ton for cabinet men. Assuming that
Merriam is all that his friends claim
for him. he is still untried and unprov
ed in the conduct of affairs on a large
scale, and the future is all before him.
He has no record in the public service
that would command the respect and
confidence of the nation, and the ap
pointment of any such man as he
would do nothing to strengthen the
administration and open for it a short
route to the hearts of the people. This
latter is highly necessary at this time,
as all will admit, and none realizes it
more thoroughly than MeKinley him
self. So, I come back to what I have
just said, namely, that the cabinet
of the new president will be made up
of men whose reputations are more
than local, and who will bring to him
elements of important strength that
could be secured in no other way.
"In this matter, of course, I do not
presume to speak for MeKinley. I have,
however, his express word that he has
made no promises and held out no
hepes to aspirants for cabinet positions,
and further, that which I have just
mentioned, that the cabinet will be
made up of big men. From these state
ments you can draw your own conclu
sions, just as I have done.
"There will be an extra session of
congress, in my judgment, as soon as
it can be assembled after the inaugu
ration. MeKinley does not favor the
Dingley bill, which he regards as only
a makeshift at best, and very properly
thinks that, before anything else Is
done, the country should be placed
upon a solvent basis. If McKinley's
wishes are followed by the extra ses
sion, there will be a new' tariff bill from
start to finish, and no attempt to patch
up any of the bills which are now be
fore congress. I do not understand
that MeKinley will favor any radical
tariff legislation, but he does want
whatever tariff legislation there is to
have the name of the Republican party
stamped upon it.
FOR SWEET CHARITY.
Destitute Men to Be Provided With
The matter of providing suitable
quarters and temporary lodging for
destitute men has begun to assume
definite shape. The committee of citi
zens chosen at the West hotel meeting
has considered the matter and arrived
at a plan which they think is a good
one. Their idea is not to make the
place a lounging place for tramps,
every man going there being required
to work if there is any on hand. The
plan of getting something for nothing
will not be encouraged in the least at
this home, which will be copied as much
as the conditions will allow, from the

such relief and assistance, but at the same

either fallen, or been ln a "scrap," for
he was badly cut on the head. A tele

KIPPED A RAFFLE SCHEME,
Police Put Two Charitably Disposed
Individuals I'nder Arrest,
Officer George Revere arrested Michael
Moriarty last evening on the charge of ob
taining money under false pretenses. Mori
arty is the pal of W. MeClellan, who was
arrested on the same charge in the after
noon. The two men were selling tickets for a
sewing machine raffle for the benefit of Wid
ow M. P. Brown, residing at 243 Twelfth
avenue south. Although such a name is not
given in the directory, the police found
Widow Brown, and discovered that she was
sick and poor, and, being sixty years of
age, is unable to earn her living. She said
that the two men had come to her claiming
they could dispose of a large number ot tick
ets, as they were railroad men, and knew
the men on the road. MeClellan had sold
two tickets, and had turned over 50 cents
to the widow. The police, however, think
they nipped the game of the two men in the
bud, as they are both said to be of bad repu
tation. Mrs. Brown admitted that she did
not know much about the men, and seemed
to have considerable confidence in them
which the police think was misplaced.

Mrs. Sander Segelbaum. widow of the lata

j ing at the family residence, 1826 Chicago aye-
I nue. Mrs. Segelbaum has been an invalid
! for some time, her condition at times being
, extremely critical. Recently her illness took
a turn towards the worse, and after a con
sultation the physicians decided that an op
eration was the only thing that would save
her life. The shock of this operation and
her inability through weakness caused by
her illness, to withstand the great strain, was
too much, and her candition grew gradually
worse, until the end -finally came. The death
of Mrs. Segelbaum, coming so closely upon
the death of her "husband, is a severe blow
to the family and their many acquaintances.
Deceased leaves tiiree sons and a daughter.

STUART MEANS BUSINESS.
Offers n Fifteen Thousand Dollar
Purse for a Finish Fight.
DALLAS, Tex., Nov. 28.— There was un
usual activity in local sporting circles today
on account of the promise of Dan A. Stuart
that he would offer a purse between the
hours of 2 and 6 p. m. for a finish fight be
tween James J. Corbett and Robert Pitz
slmmons. At noon Mr. Stuart received a
telegram from New York city announcing
that the police commissioners had declined
to grant a permit to Warren Lewis for a
limited round go at his Seaside Athletic
At 8 o'clock tonight Stuart sent for a re
porter and made known his intention, au
thorizing the publication of the following:
"I have offered a purse of $15,000 to be
contested for by Corbett and Fitzsimmons in
a fight to a finish for the championship of
the world. Each principal must deposit
$2,500 as a guarantee of appearance in the
ring. The time and place shall be announced
when the men have signed articles of agree
ment and the full amount of the purse
will be deposited when the signatures of
Corbett and Fitzsimmons have been obtained.
This Is my offer, and lt has been wired
to the principals. It is open and above
board. That is the only kind of a game
that I play, and I mean business. I shall
leave for the East ln two or three days to
secure the signature of Corbett. The battle
ground has been selected, and there need be
no fears on that score. The proposition
speaks for itself, and will be carried out to

Camp Considers the Oxford- View
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 28.— Walter
Camp, who is considered Yale's most prom
inent athletic adviser, was today made ac
quainted with a *K>rtion of a special Lon
dan cable letter which gave the substance
of Interviews with Messrs Jackson and Jor
dan, of Oxford university, with reference to
an athletic contest in 1897 between teams
representing Oxford and Cambridge on the
one hand and Yale and Harvard on the oth
er, Mr. Camp said:
"In view o_ the fact that the question of
a renewal of athletic relations between Yale
and Harvard is now before the house, it
would be somewhat premature to consider
the advisability or feasibility of such an In
ternational athletic contest. So far as I
know, there has been no correspondence on
this matter, and it would be impracticable to
express an opinion. I hope to see Yale and
Harvard get together again. The question
of an international contest might properly
be considered then."

Big Sensation Brewing ln Southern
SAVANNAH, Ga., Nov. 28.— Staff officers
Lieut. John M. Bryan, inspector of rifle prac

Lieut. J. B. Welch, surgeon of the First bat
talion infantry, Georgia volunteers, have for
warded their resignations to the governor.
They are going to retire, as they have held
commissions too long, they say. Quarter
master J. K. Kollach, of the same command,
will resign in a few days.
The action of these officers comes in the
nature of a sensation. Savannah is the
greatest military city in the South, and the
Savannah volunteer guards battalion is its
most famous military organization. The
simultaneous discovery by so many of Its
commissioned officers that they had served
the state too long and their coincident resig
nations have caused a great deal of specula
tion, and it is hinted that there is something
inspiring their action which will shake up
military circles all over the state when it
comes to light. The guards are a social a3
well as a military organization, and the offi
cers who have resigned are prominent ' in
