Mr. Countryman endeavored to con

one, and that it would be better for
them to accept the terms proposed
than to push it. as it would certainly
be fought by the- defense every inch

During the discussion, the point was
raised that the state had no jurisdic

ln spite of Its laws, the game having
been slain on the Indian reservations.
Which are federal possessions. It was |
contended that the state laws, how- j
ever stringent they might be for the

state, could not be made effective on !
Such tracts, and that, therefore, the j
case of the prosecution must fail.

that all wild game in the state belongs

_*! r. CoiKdiintl's Honesty or Ability
Sot Questioned, Itnt He Isn't
Their Choice, That's All.
Citizens .^f the First ward, to the
number of 400, held a meeting last
night at Sjoberg'a hall and passed res
olutions favoring John Sandell as a
member of the board of public works.
A. H. AroF'in, president of the assem
bly, was selected as chairman of the
meeting, and J. A. Jackson as secre
tary. Mr. Arosin, on taking charge
of tne gathering, informed the audi
ence that Mayor Doran had made up
his mind to appoint John Copeland
to the position of member of the board.
This, Mr. Arosin announces, the mayor
had decided upon irrespective of any
recommendation which the meeting or
any other meeting might make. The
announcement did not appear to make
any particular difference to the friends
of Mr. Sandell, a number of whom
made short speeches to the effect that,
if the mayor turned down the choice
Of the ward for the place, he would
have to stand the conseeiuences, when
he came up for a renomination in the
spring of 1898. The speakers favoring
the appointment of Mr. Sandell said
there was no question as to the hon
esty or ability of Mr. Copeland, but he
was not the choice of the ward for the
place. It was decided to have a ballot,
in order to ascertain the sense of those
present as to who should be recom
mended, and the result was that 407
votes were cast. Of this number San
dell received 341, Ccpeland 58 and 0
were for other candidates. Mr. San
dell made a short speech, thanking the
citizens for the honor, and the follow
ing resolutions were passed:
Whereas. There are io be appointed early
next month two member, of ttie board of pub
lic works by the mayor, and
Whereas, The citizen., of the First ward are
of the opinion that one of such members
should be appointed from the citizens of this
ward, therefore be it
Resolved, By the citizens of the First ward,
in mass meeting assembled, that wp hear-tiiy
endorse our fellow citizen, Hon. John Sandell"
for appointment as a member of the board ft
public works of this city and hereby respect
fully request his appointment to that position
by the mayor.
The chairman of the meeting was
directed to appoint a committee of one
from each election precinct in the ward,
who will call on Mayor Doran and pre
sent the resolution, together with the
minutes of the meeting.
Assistant City Attorney Phlhlps ex
plained the status of affai-s regarding
the Pha'.en park matter, and stated
there was some question as to whether
the assessment of the property would
| not have to be done over again, owing
j to the decision cf the supreme court
in the board of public works case.

! mens vote to the effect that the acqui

benefit to St. Paul, and more especially
to the citizens cf East St. Paul.

SALARIES or POLICEMEN.
Ordinsinee foi t.radel System Will
The committee on ways and means of
tne assembly discussed the question of
police salaries yesterday afternoon
Chief Goss explained that the depart
ment had been cut Z_ per cent in
September last This reduction had
been made in addition to the cur
recommended by the Parker-Clough re
trenchment report. He assured the
committee that there would be no de
! ficiency in the fund at the end of the
j year if salaries were placed back at
i the figures paid previous to September
last. The total Increase in the salaries
would be only $5,7:56, and the amount
necessary to run the department, so
far as salaries were concerned, during
the year would be $169,649.52. Assem
blyman Craig announced he was in
fa. or of the sergeants getting $75 per
month, but he was opposed to the
patrolmen receiving any more than
$70 per month. Good men, he said, could
be secured who would work as police
men at $50 per month.
Chief Goss suggested the graded sys-
I tern of salaries for patrolmen. The
j plan was in force in all the large cities
I and worked well.
Messrs. Dix and Kirke were in favor
I of amending the ordinance passed by
j the board of aldermen fixing the
! salaries for 1897 at the amounts recom
! mended by Chief Goss. It was sug
| gested, however, that the aldermanic
; ordinance should be passed at once so
I as to allow the employes of the de
| partment to get their salaries for
i January. This was agreed to and the
ordinance recommended to pass with
the salaries at the same figures as paid
since. September last. A new ordinance
will be brought up at an early date
which will provide for a graded system
for salaries of patrolmen at the rate
of $60 for the first year, $65 for second,
$70 for third and $75 for four years and

TOOK HOIGII ON HATS.
Laara <'nrlt.ua Trie* Without Suc
ceed* to Kill Herself.
Angry at parental rebuke for re
maining away from home Saturday
night, Laura Carlson, the fourteen
ycur-old daughter of C. A. Carlson, a
Carpenter living at No. 228 East Water
Street, attempted to end her life, yes-
Urday morning, by taking a large
dose of "Hough On Rats."
Ihe girl took the poison shortly after
S o'clock after being upbraided for her
failure to return home Saturday night.
Mr. Carlson had taken his daughter to
task for her action Sunday and re
newed his admonitions before going to
work yesterday morning. Scarcely had
he left the house when the girl swal
lowed the poison. The girl suffered
intense pain but refused proffered as
sistance and declared she did not care
to live. Mrs. Duford, a neighbor, was
called in as soon as the girl's action
was known, and realizing the serious
ness of the situation forced the girl to
swallow an emetic, which caused her
to be relieved of a portion of the
poison, and when later Dr. Leavitt ar
rived, her condition was not so dan
| gerous, though she still insisted that
the treatment of her parents had ren
dered life a blank and that she pre
ferred to die. Last night, however, the
child expressed regret for her action
and a desire to get well.
The origin of the girl's act is said to
be her reception of the attentions of
j Frank Duford, the eighteen-year-old
I sen of the woman who probably saved
her life. The girl appears older than
1 she really is and of late is said to
| have been going to places of enter
| tainment with young Duford, contrary
|to the wishes of her parents. When
! she did not come home Saturday night
j Mr. Carlson thought she had spent the
evening at a public dance, and chided
her for her conduct. When young Du
ford learned of the girl's attempt upon
her life shortly after she took the
poison, he forced his way to her bed
side and remained with her throughout
! the day. The young fellow sat beside
j the girl when a reporter for the |
■ Globe called at the house late in
the afternoon, but refused to say any
thing about the affair. The girl, how
ever, said her relations with Duford
had nothing to do with the quarrel be
tween her and her father.
GETTING HOIXD SHOULDERED.
Market House Committeemen Are
Weighed Down With Trouble.
"What's all de round shouldered
blokes doin' in de market house?" Is
der a mass meetin' of de hump-back
society bein' held today?"
"Don't get too fresh, sonny," said
the big policeman, who stands at Sev
enth and Wabasha streets, "them's
the committee on public buildin's from
the council, and, if you had to carry
the market house on your shoulders
like they do, you'd be a little stooped,
This was the conversation overheard
yesterday afternoon as Messrs. Craig,
Thompson, Kaldun^ki, Shepard and Al
brecht marched in one door and out
the other at the market house. The
committee was on a tour of-inspec
tion, and, endeavoring to come to seme
decision as to what would be the best
way to settle the market house prop
lem. Previous to making an inspec
tion of the building, the committee had
been closeted with Charley Steele dis
cussing what had better be done with
! the premises. The committee, since
j taking charge of the market house,
I have had a varied experience. The
I theatrical troupes have given them
I the laugh for rent of the upper hall
for something like $200, and about all
the committee have to show for their
management la an increased expendi
ture for services of a fireman.
Aid. Shepard bad an idea that the
best thing to do would be to tear down
the shed on Seventh street and have
the windows washed. Marketmaster
Webster thought this was a personal
reflection, but was assured that he
had nothing to do with the washing
of the windows, as that devolved on
tho janitor. Mr, Albrecht was in favor
of renting the Wabasha street half of
I the building tc a bicycle firm for $75
per month. Mr, Thompson did not
I think this was right, as the city ought j
I not to go into the business of renting
stores when there were any number of
vacant buildings on which property
owners were paying taxes. Aid. Shep
ard agreed with Mr. Thompson, but
said something should be done to make
the property pay expenses. As it was
now, the rents from the tenants were
less than the running expenses. He
favored the cleaning up of the building
! and particularly the halls in the upper
I part, and then, the adoption of a sched
! ule of rentals which should not be de
v'ated from. Things began to look
squally, and Mr. Craig suddenly re
membered that he had another en
gagement. The other members of the
committee split out to look over the
premises, and the result of their expe
dition will be made public at the as
sembly meeting Thursday night.

Two Selby Avenue Residences Dam
aged by Fire.
The residences of W. M. Campbell,
No. 728 Selby avenue, and E. P. Brown,
No. 730 Selby avenue, were damaged
by fire to the extent cf $200 shortly
before 6 o'clock last evening. The
dwellings form a double house owned
by J. K. Hillen, of Chicago, and arc
insured. The furniture in both houses
was slightly damaged, but the greater
part of the loss is on the buildings.
The origin of the fire is a mystery, aud
the fire department occupied half an
j hour locating the flames, which were
finally discovered between the ceiling
and floor of No. 728 by tearing up a
portion of the stairs floor. By the
time this was done the fire had spread
through the rafters to No. 730 and the
same operation was here necessary to
get at the flames.
AVARS' EFFECT OX THE C. S.
Discussed by Capt. P. H. Rende De
fore the Historical Society.
Capt. Philip H. Reade, of the Third
United States infantry, a historian of
reputation, and a man who takes very
original and advanced views upon the
value of history, delivered a very in
teresting lecture before the executive
council of the State Historical society
last evening. The captain's subject
was the relation of the many wars
fought tc the present development of
the United States. The speaker went
into a very detailed historical resume
of the settlement of the country, show
ing the contests between the powers
of Europe to gain and maintain pos
session of the American continent. It
was a struggle in which England
France, Spain, Austria, Holland, Por
tugal, Sweden. Russia and Scotland
figured at different periods. Capt.
Reade is of the opinion that St is the
geography and the wars of America
which made its history and not the
usual dates and unimportant facts re
lated in the usual high school text
books. The early history of America
was a continual war between the dif
ferent nations. Out of one period of
123 years, sixty-four were spent in
wars. The result of the "seven years
war" established tne commercial su
premacy of Great Britain.

There was an absence of whistling
girls at the eleventh annual poultry
show \vhleh opened yesterday on East
Seventh street, but this attraction was
lost sight of by the large number of
crowing roosters, hens, turkeys and
other fowls which made themselves
heard above the din of travel and
noise. The three floors of the building

OPPOSED TO CHANGE.
Chamber of Commerce Likca the
Present City Hospital.
The chamber of commerce considered
the bankruptcy law again yesterday,
informally indorsing its previous action
in urging upon congress the necessity
of some action. Capt. Castle's resolu
tion recommending a close supervision
by the postofiice department of the
matter entered as "second-class," was
The chamber also adopted unanimous
ly the following report from the com
mittee on health and sanitation:
That our committee on health and sanita
tion bo requested to do all in their newer to
prevent any change in the membership of
the board of control or any change in the
method of the appointment of said board.
Mr. Woodman, one of the delegation
from the chaimber which visited the city
hospital, reported as follows:
With 170 patients, -Which is about the num
ber now in the hospital, many other em
ployes, besides the nurses, are necessary.
But no supernumerary is visible. Every per
son connected with the hospital is to be seen
actively performing a duty of some necessary
kind. These evidences of industry and economy
are apparent throughout the building, which
contains more than twenty wards, some of
them very large. It would be impossible to
maintain the high sanitary condition, due to
exquisite cleanliness in all parts of so large a
building occupied by the sick, that Is here
manifest, unless a great deal of labor and
care were bestowed on that object alone. Yet
there are no people standing around as if
merely waiting for their salary. It Is difficult
to understand how such Immaculate house
keeping can be carried on with the attendant
The methodical conduct of the business in all
its departments is as striking as in the ad
ministration of a railway. * * *
It is obvious on a casual glance at the neat
ness, the order, the absence of noise and
friction ln the movement of the org- ization,
that somewhere there is a co-ord'na .ng and
directing power, controlling Its precision and
efficiency. It is the superintendent. For four
teen years a man of the right qualifications
and ambition has made it his life work to
build up this hospital. * * * It Is Impos
sible to give too much credit to Dr. Ancker,
who combines the qualifications of the pro
fessional man with great organizing and ad
ministrative powers, and with the open nature
and broad sympathies that compel personal
admiration and the confidence of the different
schools of medicine.
Very fortunately for this Institution, its
control has been taken out of politics and
bestowed on a Ifciard whose members are ap
pointed by judges of one of our courts. It
never could have become what Is Is today if it
had been at the mercy of the spoilsmen of
rival parties. It is the very last public en
terprise, not even excepting our schools, which
should be subjected to this baleful Influence.
It now fitly represents our humanltarlanlsm.
It can only continue to do it while the same
system of control Is maintained. In other
countries, as well as ln our own, we see that
the power of society is being more immediate
ly applied to the adrnini-stration of its affairs.
Unnecessary agents are being dispensed with,
necessary ones are being brought under civil
service rules, kinds of public service hereto
fore received from business corporations are
being assumed by municipalities; in short,
the unmistakable spirit e>f the time and ten
dency of events is socialistic. We discern
two modes of socialism, the destructive and
the constructive ln this hospital, as It Is now
administered and controlled, we have an ex
ample of constructive socialism '..hat should
command the approval of patriotic citizens.

trial all day yestei day. Judge Willis, though
sitting in chambers during the February
term, consented yesterday to try the case.
The chamber of commerce offers no de-
fense to the suit, except its inability to pay
the note, which, when given ln 1890, was in
the sum of $8,000, $2,000 having since been
paid. But the plaintiff seeks to make the
sixteen guarantors liable. Their defense is
that the plaintiff accepted interest in ad

under a ruling of the supreme court, they
are released from personal liability.
DR. MILLARD'S RETIREMENT.
Plymouth Congregational Church
Regrets to Lose Him.
The resignation of Rev. Watson B.
Millard, pastor of the Plymouth Con
gregational chure-h. announced from
the pulpit Sunday, while a surprise to
the public, was not unexpected by the
members of the congregation. The
resignation takes effect May 1, and Dr.
Millard regrets the facts that makes
his resignation necessary. The congre
gation also is equally sorry to part
with their pastor. In his letter of
resignation Dr. Millard said:
1 accepted your call to become your pastor
a little over two years ago, and while I knew
something of your difficulties, did not be
gin to understand their full extent During
these two years we have worked together,
and I trust not without results. Our actual
membership has somewhat Increased and the
different departments of work have been well
sustained. For this I cordially commend the
faithful and most efficient band of worker*
which our church contains. It is probable
that some one else could have done much
belter service than I, but It is right to recog
nize the great and peculiar difficulties which
have attended our labors*. The continued de
pression iv the business world, which has
caused the failure of many kinds of enter
prises, has been especially trying under our
peculiar conditions. This fact, added to the
convictions of some which antidate my pas
torate, has somewhat complicated tho prob
But desiring, as I do, the advancement of
the cause we love, and thinking to simplify
the question and to aid you if I may in the
least degree to reach the right conclusion, I
thus resign the pastorate.
Formerly the congregation paid its
pastor $3,500, but hard times caused
the salary to be reduced to $1,500, and
the understanding was when Dr. Mil
lard assumed charge that the salary
was to be raised as soon as the con
dition of the church warranted it.
Rev. H. H. Hart, who is a member
of the church and a staunch friend of
Dr. Millard, said there was no feeling
in connection with the pastor's retire
"The fact is," said Mr. Hart, "We
have had a $3,500 man for $1,500. But
the church cannot go on and pay even
the present salary of $1,500 without
incurring indebtedness, and Dr. Mil
lard stated that he would resign rathe**
than that the church should go into
debt on his account. And so the doctor
resigned. We regret it more than
words can tell. Dr. Millard is an able
man and one-in whom we have reposed
the greatest trust and have the great
est faith. But it is a step he has been
contemplating for a long time, and
is, of course, no surprise to his friends.
Not a word should be said of any ill
feeling, for so far as I know, or any
body whom I have heard speak, Dr.
Millard had a friend in every member
of the church. He has tried to get the
church out of debt, and has practical
ly succeeded, for it only owes at this
time $3,500. It is simply a case of where
the congregation was unable to pay for
its minister, and the minister was
forced, in self-defense, to leave. That's
all there is to it. Everybody in the
church loves Dr. Millard. There's lit
tle question about that."
Asked if he had any call or any plans
for the future, Dr. Millard said he
