veteran railroad conductor, popularly
known as "Smith" Jones, which occur

sult of a severe surgical ■p. r ition. Mr.
Jones has been a familiar figure on the
Milwaukee for a quarter of a century,
and as recently as Thursday went out
on his regular run, but was taken ill,
and compelled to surrender hi.s train at
Milbank. He laid over there a day,
and brought back the train of the next
day, arriving in St. Paul yesterday
morning. Th--? trip <xh v ..id him some

dance at once upon reaching his home

diagnosed the case as inflammation of
the bowels, due to a bladder trouble.
His condition grew rapidly worse, and
in the night it became evident that
an operation must be performed, and
speedily, or death must ensue. The
patient was hastily removed in an am
bulance to the Northwestern hospital
in Minneapolis, where Drs. Henderson
and H. H. Kirn bail, assisted by a num
ber of other surgeons, performed the

William S. Jones, ;( prominent pioneer
resident of Hastings, who. with his
wife, survives his son's death. The

Mr. Jones was not only popular in
his own community, but throughout the
region in which he had run a train for
so many years. He enjoyed the respect

in?; that, while the parish had suffered
financially ajad in numbers from the

compensations in the situation.
Among these was the formation of
an . ndowment fund, which is now over
§14,000, and which has been remembor
ed liberally in the will of the late Gen.
Another compensation was to be
found in tne many active agencies of
the parish for the relief of the poor.
Still another source of gratilication
was in the organization of many
guilds, brotherhoods and sisterhoods
i' !• carrying on the spiritual life of the
parish. During the pa.^t ten years 307
persons have been confirmed. A very
distinctive work has also been accom

Emancipation Day Observed in n
The Afro-Americans of St. Paul
held a special service yesterday morn
ing in St. Peter Claver's church, cor
ner Farrington and Aurora avenues,
celebrating Emancipation day.
Aug. 1 the colored people of the Unit
ed States and Canada have observed
for thirty years as the anniversary of
Emancipation day. The colored people
always enter into this celebration with
a great deal of spirit. The day is usual
ly observed with a general holiday and
outing, at which stirring patriotic
speeches are always made, but it fall
ing on Sunday this year, services bet
ter becoming the day were held. This
is the first time known of its being ob
served by a Catholic church. Similar
pervices were held all ever the United
States and Canada yesterday.
The services commenced at 10:30 a.
m., with solemn high mass, which was
celebrated by Rev. Father Andrews.
St. Peter Claver's choir, under the di
rection e>f Claud Jackson, sang Far
mer's mass in B flat. They also gave
several other numbers. The soloists
were Mrs. Joseph Harris and Miss Hat
tie Shepherd, sopranos; Mr. Jackson,
t«'iinr; Miss Birdie King, altc; Messrs.
C. M. Miller and Allen French, bass.
Their singing was well received, sev
eral numbers given by them being
classical. The audience was made up
principally of colored people, among
whom were to be seen many prominent
in the city.
Th^ feature of the service was an
address by Rev. Dr. P. R. Heffron, of
St. Paul'B seminary, who took for lii.s
topic "The Catholic Church as a Friend
of the Negro." Dr. Heffron was dea
c< n. and Key. J. Seliska, a nephew of
Bishop Trotoee. served as subdeacon.
Dr. Heffron's address was well receiv
ed by the colored people. H« has many
warm friends among the colored peo
ple of St. Paul, probably as many as
any member of the Catholic clergy, he
having been for several years in close
touch with that branch of the Catholic
church when he was priest at the ca
Dr. Heffron said in part:
America has twice decreed for humar
freedom. The declaration of Independ
ence is a living magna charta of hu-
man rights, whose logical result Is the
proclamation of emancipation — for, If
men by divine and natural laws are
born equal, it follows that slavery Is
a crime against law, yet It took long
centuries to leaven human thought
and make human and human
law conform to. the divine. The spirit
and the teachmg of the Christian re
ligion gradually permeated human in
stitutions until its Influence could no
longer be resisted. It was a mighty
struggle for them, as there were mighty
forces engaged in the combat. On the
one side the spirit of Christ moving
over the chaos of earthly systems,
slowly, it may be, but surely changing
them, while on Ihe^her there were all
that tradition, Hesttd rights, so-called,
human interest, human greed and In
justice could summon in support of a
Slavery is no longer legalized in our
land. The church's teaching has reach
ed as far as the enacted law. But
there Is yet a grea-t wok to be done.
This same teaching must reach men's
hearts, a d thbre Mscrlbe in letters of
liiv: "All men are -brethren." Law has
been recast, now let the assault be
made on prejudice. The church shall
continue her mission, she will preach
justice and charity to men, but she
will likewise proclaim the eternal debt
of gratitude which a ransomed race
owes to America, and she will not
cease to exhort them, as I exhort you
this morning, to show yourselves
worthy of the priceless boon o° Chris
tian civilization, brought from heaven
by the Savior, preached by the church
and promulgated by the nation.

St. Peter** Church Finally Had Its
The postponed picnic of St. Peter's
Lutheran church, at Keough's place, on
the Fort Snelling car line, yesterday,
was a most successful outing. The
picnic was scheduled for a week ago
yesterday, and many of the congrega
tion visited the grounds at that time
to have their pleasure marred by the
heavy rain. Yesterday, however, there
were no obstacles of any kind and large
numbers of pleasure seekers enjoyed the
day in the pretty grove, being enter
tained with music and athletic games,
in which members of the congregation
participated for prizes. The contests
were interesting and some of them
Very close. Many family parties were
among the picnickers, but the women
of the church were amply prepared for
the strangers who toik-part in the out

spreading several tables for their
guests. A full brass band furnished
music for the occasion.

Ureuoed l'ule Helped Out the
An ideal day and an attendance of
fully 3,000 people served to make the
annual outing of the Itetail Liquor
Dealers' association at Fort Snelling
yesterday the most successful picnic
in the history of the organization. Ev-
cry one who was looking for a good
time went out to the grounds, and
none was disappointed. From early
morning to midnight a good-natured,
rollicking crowd held possession of
Harris' park, indulging in dancing,
athletic games and whatever pastime
appealed to the individual inclination.
The pleasure seekers were out for all
of the amusement which could be
crowded into the day, and congeniality
everywhere prevailed. Men grew red
in the face throwing mushy base balls
at the head of an agile negro, in ihe
hope of winning a bad cigar by hit
ting the elusive African, and shot away
enough ammunition in Flobert rifles at
impossible targets to equip the United
States army for war, while buttered
popcorn was consumed by the bushel
and other forms of refreshment in
immeasurable quantities. Apparently
sensible men laid aside all claims lo
the appellation and rushed madly after
a greased pig, ruining their Sunday
clothes and wasting enough energy to
run a pork packing establishment a
year, for the sake of showing their
friends how cleverly they could head
off a bedaubed and badly frightened
piglet, while neatly attired women
knocked their hats awry trying to
throw a ball into a barrel, or sacrificed
white kid slippers in running races.
However, it was to witness and take
part in diversions of this kind that the
picnickers visited the park, and con
testants and spectators alike hugely
enjoyed the fun. It was a thoroughly
democratic gathering, without regard
to social distinction or preferment of
The different committees having the
picnic in charge performed their re
spective duties admirably, and every
thing went off as smoothly as could be
Wished: The street car service was ade
quate, and once on the grounds the
hosts of ihe occasion did all in their
power for the entertainment of their
guests. The programme of athletic
games occupied the afternoon and
proved prolific of amusement The
features were easily the fat men's race
between Bob Grady and Harry Miller,
the slippery pole climbing contest, and
the final event in which several hun
dred men and boys chased in and out
among the trees after a closely shavt.ll
pi.q smeared with grease. The sprint
(or the fat men was an exhibition or
two very much winded heavyweights
tearing wildly through the sand of. a
100-yard course, only to leave the race
as undecided as it was before the start.
It was whispered that both Grady and
Miller, each unknown to the other, had
been practicing for the event for sev-.
eral weeks. Friends of each had se
cretly Held the watch on the other, it
is said, and carried the time of each
of the rivals to his opponent. It was
lc-arned that Miller could cover the 100
yards in about 600 seconds, and BraJy'.s
training was devoted to equaling this
mark. How well he strove was evi
denced by the race, for it was neck
and neck from the pistol to the tape-,
across which both heavyweights stum
bled with as much grace as possible in
a dead heat. Each eyed the other sus
piciously as friends carried them from
the arena, but several hours later,
when able to converse in jerky gasps,
Grady and Miller decided to settle th«
sprinting supremacy by throwing Jiva
little cubes out of a leather box.
The efforts of innumerable small
boys and some larger ones to shin up a
fifteen-foot pole, as slippery as a
column of eels, produced much
amusement. It looked ea~y. and every
youngster who had ever looked
at a ball game from a tel
egraph pole imagined that all
that was necessary to win the prize
was an opportunity to grasp the pole.
Some managed to get four or five feet
from the ground by digging their nails
in the soft wood, but there they clung
for a moment, only to slide back to
earth again with less conceit than they
previously possessed. Long lean men,
short stubby ones and wiry youths,
each under the impression that his par
ticular physique was modeled on pole
climbing lines, made frantic efforts to
ascend the slippery staff, but not even
the sand which some of them carried
in their pockets and covered their
hands with when part way up gave
any more success to the trials. Ten
feet was the highest anyone could get,
but the bantering remarks of the
crowd made the fun good as long as it
laj:ed. Finally, after twenty-five
other aspirants had worn the slippery
substance from the pole, Henry Allen
by dint of desperate struggling and
kicking managed, amid the cheers and
bravos of the spectators, to reach the
ropes at the top.
The pell-mell race after a greased pig
was extremely ludicrous. When the
porker was turned loose he made a bee
line for a bevy of women reclining
upon the grass. A hundred men and
boys followed in close pursuit. The
women screamed and sought the safety
of the grand stand, while the frighten
ed pig doubled on his course and took
madly after them. The women reach
ed the stand first, when the young
squealer dodged under the steps and
tore off to another part of the ground.
Frantic grabs were made at his slip
pery body as he passed the picnickers,
but the best anyone got fur nearly
half an hour was begrimed hands and
huge grease spots on different portions
of his wearing apparel. Occasionally
a small boy would stop the pig's fight
for a moment and grovel with the ani
mal in the sand, only to have his
smooth body slip from his grasp as
he imagined the prize won. Finally
the terrified porker was surrounded,
and one ambitious boar hunter threw
himself flat on to]) of him. Ear split
ting squeals escaped the little pig i, u t
when his captor had held him three
minutes the contest was decided
settled and the young porker win now
grace his captpr's table. The winners

You are hereby authorized and instructed
to select a set of delegates to the above-men
tioned convention, and the number and names
of your delegates selected should be in the

days previous to the date of the convention.
The basis of representation will be one del
egate for each ton members, and one addi
traTTal delegate for a fraction of ten members.
At this convention matters of the utmost
importance to the interests of the liquor trade
in Minnesota will be acted upon, and it is,
therefore, imperative that you should be rep.
resented by your full quota of delegates:
In this connection the following, also
signed by the officers of the state as
soojation, has been sent out:
A general invitation is extended to all liquor
dealers in the state, whether affiliated or not
with the Minnesota Retail Liquor Dealers'
association, to attend the annual convention,
to be held at Assembly hall, corner of Third
■ and Wabasha streets, in the city of St. Paul
Minn., on Sept. S, 9 and 10. 1897. The St.
Paul dealers are making extensive prepara
tions for the entertainment of all visitors,
and as this year will be fraught with mat
ters of the utmost importance to the trad«l in
general, it is most desirable that the St. Paul
j gathering shall be large and representative
of the traffic in Minnesota. Every liquor
dealer In the state of Minnesota, whether
an association member or not. is urgently
requested to attend the convention. The
Minnesota Retail Liquor Dealers' association
cannot too forcibly impress upon all the im
portance of the convention, and therefore
extends a general invitation to all.
FAIR AflD YET FOWlt
ONE OF THE IXTEMESTIXtt EXHIB
ITS IX .MIXXESOT.VS GREAT AG
RICI LTURAIi SHOW.
The prosperity which the Minnesota
state fair has enjoyed for two or three
years past has been taken advantage
of by the management to largely in
crease the pivmiumns in the poultry
department. This department will be
one of the great points of interest. Last
year the accommodations were too
small, but this year a large building,
formerly used for the dining hall, has
been placed at the disposal of the poul
try department, giving four times the
space occupied last year. The cash
premiums offered aggregate $900, which
is sure to stimulate the display. There
were over 2,000 occupants of the coops
last year, and it will not be surprising
to r.ee that number doubled.
The racing entries close tonight and
dc-finite results will not be known until
tomorrow, but all the indications point
to the races at the state fair being the
best seen in tbe state in years. Promi
nent horse men are planning to bring
notable racing' stock to our fair.
The premiums offered for creamery
butler have been doubled and the in
crease has been gr-neral all along the
line. Last year but $500 was offered
for county exhibits, while this year's
premiums amount to $1,200. It will pay
farmers in every county in the state
to furnish county exhibits, for in no bet
ter way can the value of their farms
be determined. A generous rivalry
between different localities in the state
will be of great advantage.
The horse, cattle, sheep and poultry
exhibits will be largor than ever, as
the entries already exceed the aggre
gate of many years during the history
of the fair, and there is still a month
remaining. Tn machinery all the labor
ravirg appliances conceivable will be on
During the past week the manage
j mc-nt have added some amusement at
; tractions. One of them is a novelty in
: the shape of a log rolling contest. A
; large and deep trench will be dug in
I front of the grand stand and filled with
i water. A saw log will be floated and
two exprri-nc. d logging men will mount
to determine who can ride it the long
est with ease and safety. The feat con
sists of one of the men dumping his
companion in the water by manipulat
ing, as lumber men actually do in mak
ing a drive. A cord will be tied around
the log at its center, and each rider
must keep on his own side of the cord.
They are allowed no balancing poles,
and must depend upon their spiked
boots for their footing. In addition
to the professionals having charge of
the matter, prizes trill be offered for
those who wish to contest.
Another amusement attraction will
be the appearance of William Shields,
the famous bicycle rider, known as
"Rube." Owing to the verdancy of
his appearance, his feats on the bicycle
are something especially attractive.
These exhibitions will be given between
the races every day, and will niako
the grand stand a point of advantage
for a large amount of enjoyment.
It is an open question whether the
balloon ascension of the dog will take
place, owing to the protest of D. R.
Noyes, president of the Humane so
ciety, but there will be a number of
ascensions by a man and a woman,
who will make the parachute leap,
whether the dog does or not.
Added to this, every evening will be
carnival night in the Twin Cities,
where free street parades, band con
certs, fireworks, etc., will be given. Add
ing all these incidental features to the
solid display at the fair, the people of
Minnesota have a rare entertainment
in prospect from Sept. 6 to 11.
