CRIMSHAW IS STILL BOSS
CHAIRMAN OF HENNEPIN RE
SlwrliV Phillips Wrathy Over the
Action of the Democratic Con
vention in Repudiating Him, but
Still Satisfied He Can Make a
Valid Case Before the Supreme
Court The Mews of Minneapolis.
. The Republican county candidates met at
the rooms of the Union League club yester
day afternoon and approved the new county
conimitlee appointed by W. H. Grimshaw,
chairman of the county convention. Robert
Jamison is the new chairman, and Simon
Michel*! continues as sccietary.
Sheriff Phillips is wrathy, but not at all
cast down over his repudiation by the Dem
ocratic county convention; In fact he be
lieve, that the affair will be of benefit to
him in establishing his rights by the supreme
court. Mr. Phillips says that there was no
arnou:w'"ment of th. meeting, none knew
that i was to be held except his opponents.
There wore only fifteen people present, and
they may or may not have been delegates, for
no roll was called. The resolutions already
prepared were railroaded through like clock
work. It was a farce ln every respect, he
Bays, as far as being an adjourned meet
ir%, of the convention, and he alleges that the
performance was a deliberately planned trick
to bolster up an unjust cause.
The Democratic judicial convention will be
held at Harmonia hail Aug. 16, at 11 oYl.ck
a. in., and the primaries aro to occur on the
e_>'iii:ig of Aug. 16. Tha Populists will un
doubtedly adopt coincident dates, in order
that fusion may be secured If possible.
A city s'.ate which is being talked more
or less among local Democrats Is James
Grany for mayor, and F. G. Hoibrook for
comptroller. A. W. Paris is another mayor

Fusion made its appearance once again at
the bi< eting of Democratic candidates held at
the party headquarters last evening. The
subjc t was brought up by John T. McGow
an, ... Che First ward, a candidate for the
State _.;ia.te. who offered a resolution by the
t< rma of which he proposed to have a com
mittee of seven appointed from among the
candiates to confer with tho Populists r.nd
endta.or to bring about fusion. Inciden ally,
_lr. McGowan made the remark that there
were several vacancies upon the county ticket
Which could be traded In a manner that
would greatly »-Jd the effort to restore the
old relations existing between tho two par
This remark was objected to by E. A.
Stevens, the candidate for coroner. Mr. Stev
ens volunteered the further informatioa that,
■while he was a candidate by proxy, with
the intention of retiring when a suitable suc
cessor had been selected, he would not retire
to make room for any Populist so long a*
Mr. Caton remained upon the Populist ticket
as tli-- congressional nominee.
When Mr. McGcwan had bean informed that
ton new county committee had been intrusted
•with plenary powers with regard to remov
als and the filling cf vacancies upon the coun
ty ticket, he veered about and offered a dif
ferent resolution, the second one r. questing
tho new county committee to meet with the
Populist committee with a view to bringing
about fusion. Ho wa. met with a substitute
offer; . by Mr. Stevens that the new couaty
committee, in the event of any vacancies ails
ir.R, should be requrste. not to fill any va
c.i: v with a candidate not ln full accord
w i:'n the Democratic state, congressional cr
county ticket, or with the city or judicial
ticket yet to be nominated. This simply
meant that no Populist fighting under the
banner of T. J. Caton should rcctive tha
11' morratic indorsement
Chairman Gallagher took a hand in the
proceedings and endeavored to help out
Stevens, saying that he believed It would be
the height of bad politics to force the candi
dates themselves to put themselves upon
lecord on this subject. Mr. Stevens made a
motion to adjourn, but the chair allowed
some further discussion, during which F. B.
Long placed himself on record as favoring
fusion. When the vote to adjourn was put
• i; was carried by a vote of 7 to 4.
Early ln the evening the candidates decided
against the wisdom of appointing a new coun
ty committee now, and that matter was laid
over till the evening of Monday, Aug. 8.
ROW REALLY SETTLED.
An^Kliurg Contestants Reach a Sat
It is announced that the Augsburg semi
nary contest, which has been waged for sev
eral years jmst by the United Norwegian
church and the faction in control of the semi
nary, was settled last night between the con
testants. The United Church wanted control
,of the seminary and the matter was taken
; into the oourts and the church at first won,
but the decision of the lower court was re
versed about two months ago by the supreme
court. Since then the parties have been try
• ing to reach a mutual understanding about
the matter, but lt has seemed likely that it
'< would come into the courts again. Prof.
. yen Ottedal, principal of tha seminary, and
his supporters were willing to yield the fund
of the seminary, $39,0_>, but the church was
not saiisfled with that and wanted the prop
erty. valued at $33,000, and control of the
seminary. It was expected that the matter
would come up in the courts under another
form, but it Is understood that a settlement

all we can do to furnish out-of-town employ
ers with men. In fact, labor is at a pre
During the spring and summer of last year
the average wage offered was $1._5. Now it
is $1.75. The men presenting themselves at
the labor bureaus are, to judge from appear
ance, well off, and are simply looking for
some opportunity to better themselves. The
harvest fields appear to be the favorite with
them. In consequence of which the railroads
are Buffering and having a difl&cult time, in
deed, to secure the necessary quota of men.
Employment for the remainder of the summer
and fall is offered, and for the opening up
of a new line on the Canadian Pacific men are
wanted for two years.

HARVEST HANDS SCARCE.
South Dakota Farmer* Inconve
nienced by the Spaninh War.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., July 21.— The
farmers of the Northwest are confront
ed by a hard proposition as one of the
results of the war. With so small a
percentage of soldiers from the West
lt would seem that their absence could
make no difference in .thes affairs of
the states. But the situation is seri
ous for the farmer who is ready to har
vest his grain. Heretofore the help has
not been large, but, with the assistance
of tramps during the harvesting sea
son, the farmers have been able to .care
for their crops. Now, not only are their
own sons away in the army, but there
are no tramps In the Northwest.
"I have never known anything like
It,"' said one of the largest farmers ln
South Dakota to day. "I went into a
town near my farm last week to get
harvest hands. I could easily have se
cured 200 men there last year, but now
I could not get one. The town has a
population of 500, but It sent 210 men
to fight against Spain. If there are
any idle men in the East looking for
plenty of work, they should come out
here. We must have help or some of
us will lose our crops."
Farmers are working night and day
cutting and stacking grain, and every
boy and girl in the family is pressed
into service as drivers and stackers.
The crop is fully 25 per cent greater
than last year.

DAKOTA FUSION TICKET.
It Will Be Selected Next Tuesday
by the Committee.
FARGO, N. D., July 21.— (Special.)— The fu
sion committee appointed by the Democratic
and Populist conventions to name a fusi-in
ticket will meet next Tuesday and select
standard bearers for the coming campaign.
A report comes from a reliable scurco 'that
Bartlett, of Griggs county, who was a prom
inent Republican candidate for lieutenant
governor at the recent convention, will be
named for governor. The deal is said to have
originated with dissatisfied Grand Forks Re
publicans, and, lt is alleged, in cansidera
tlon for the choice of Bartlett, the fusionlsts
are prcmis-ed Grand Forks, Griggs and Walsh
counties. The fusionlsts thus hope to defeat
the Republican ticket at the polls.
Bemtlcy, of Burleigh, is to be a candidate
for congress. Other places have not been de
cided on as yet, and it is possible h mass
meeting of Democrats, Populists, silver and
disgruntled Republicans may be held for the
purpose of filling the ticket. It Is definitely
decided, however, that Bartlett Is to bo the
candidate for governor.

ROAD MEN IN COUNCIL
Freight and Pasienger Agents ol
the Canadian Pacific and the
American Transcontinental Lines
Meet ln This City and Make an
Effort to Solve the Rate Prob
The freight and passenger officials of
the Canadian Pacific, Union Pacific,
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
held and all-day session at the offlce
of General Traffic Manager Clarke, of
the Great Northern, yesterday. Among
those present at the meeting were
Freight and Passenger Traffic Manager
Kerr, of the Canadian Pacific; Gener
al Agent Peters, of the Canadian Pa
cific; Assistant General Freight Agent
Garrett, of the Union Pacific; General
Traffic Manager Hanna.ord and Gen
eral Freight Agent Moore, of the
Northern Pacific; General Traffic Man
ager Clarke and General Freight Agent
Somers, of the Great Northern.
Rates In general and the rate war ln
particular were discussed all day long,
but so far as the latter was concerned
the offlciais were unable to arrive at a
solution that might bring about a sat
isfactory adjustment of the vexing
problem. There was not an official at
the meeting that was not of the opinion
that the present rate tangle Is one of
the worst, If not the worst, that they
have ever had to deal with.
When the meeting adjourned late In
the afternoon it was learned that an
understanding had been reached look
ing toward a settlement of the differen
tial problem. Just what this under
standing was was not made public. In
discussing the differentials the Can
adian Pacific was arrayed against the
ether roads represented. It was claim
ed by the Canadian road that it was
still entitled to differentials of $7.50 and
$5 on California business. The other
roads argued that the agreement that
had covered the allowing of these dif
ferentials had ceased to exist long ago.
In the diiacussion it developed that
a great many freig-ht and passenger
rates in Western territory had been
cut unnecessarily since the cuts had
not added strength to either side. It
was found that this was especially
true in the Pacific coast country-
It is probable that another meeting
of the magnates will toe held before
long and that as a result of yester
day's meeting an agreement maj- be
framed covering differentials on West
While President Van Home, of the
Canadian Pacific, was not present at
the meeting yesterday, it was under
stood that his presence in the city and
his frequent consultations with Presi
dent Hill since his coming here had
much to do with the understanding
covering the differential situation. It
is expected that President Van Home
will leave for home today.
The following statement of the con
troversy has been issued by the inter
state commerce commission:
The general policy of the United States gov
ernment for the past generation has been that
of protection to Its Industrie., transportation
as well as manufacturing, mining and agri
cultural. To aid its shipping industries it ab
solutely prohibited any foreign vessel from
participating in the transportation of traffic
from one port of the United States to another
port in the United States. It frequently occurs
that a foreign ship comes into the port of
New York with a cargo, discharges it, and
then goes to New Orleans for a cargo of oit
ton for Liverpool. In that case it goss empty
to take en ballast to enable it to get to New
Orleans. Now, if it could participate in carry
ing our traffic it would cheerfully take a
cargo for New Orleans at a nominal rate,
but the merchant shipping to New Orleans
cannot avail himself of the cheap rates which
the foreign vessel could afford, but pays ths
American ship owener instead whatever the
service is worth.
An exception to th's policy of protecting our
own industries prevails in railroad transporta
tion. Our congress, by law, has permitted tha
Canadian Pacific Railroad company to bring
Its cars Into our territory and take our goods
Into Canada and back into the United State 3
again, thus depriving our own roads of tha
much-needed revenue which they woutd have
derived from the traffic If foreign railroads
were placed on the same footing as foreign
ships. This Is a very serious matter to our
roads. For the past five years mere than
$3,000,000,000 of the capital stock of our rail
roads has not earned one cent on the Invest
ment. In addition to that enormous less, they
have not earned a dollar on $900,000,000 of
bonds. But during that time they have paid
to the state governments through which they
pass from $36,000,000 In 1894 to $41,000,000 in
1897. Since the panic of 1893 their taxes have
Increased at the rate of more than $1,000,000
over the preceding year. Now, on top of that
comes the new war taxes, which will aggr3
gate many millions of dollars more. The Can
adian Pacific railroad, of Canada, of course,
pays no taxes. The privilege it enjoys gives
it Just that much advantage over our own
roads. Eut this is not all. Our congress
enacted laws of a very highly restrictive
character controlling our railroads, prohibit
ing them from lowering their rates without
three days' public notice, and from raising
them without ten days' notice; prohibiting
them from paying rebates to secure traffic,
and requiring them to do some and refrain from
doing other things which make against their
business, unless all of their competitors are
under the same restrictions.
The Canadian Pacific railroad, by reason of
its being situated in foreign territory, has
been held by United States courts to be'prac
ticably exempt from the burdens and embar
rassments which our laws Impose upon our
own roads. In other words, the American
roads have their hands tied by our laws
wherever they are in competition with the
Canadian Pacific railroad, while the latter 13
free and unembarrassed to wage destructive
war upon the United Staes lines.
In February last the interstate commerce
commission decided that in a rate war then
being conducted by the Canadian Pacific
against our lines they were buying our traffic
away from our lines and carrying it at about
half what the service was worth, and that
the means employed, if done by a United
States road, would be In violation of law,
which would subject them to indictment; but,
as the Canadian Pacific road was not subj.c:
to our law there was no way to restrain them
from continuing their illegitimate practices.
Notwithstanding that decision, the Canadian
Pacific, which derives Its chief support by tha
sufferance of our laws, takes advantage of
their permission to do business in this coun
try, has continued and yet persists in its
practices, which are resulting so disastrously
to American lines.
In view of these facts, aside from the gen
eral policy of protection, the enormous taxes
which our roads contribute to tho public
welfare, and that they are available at all
times to our government for military pur
poses, they ought in common fairness to be
relieved from the warfare which has de
generated into one of destruction.
FOR HANDLING LIVE STOCK.
Effort to Simplify Hauling to South
St. Paul Yards.
President M. D Flower, of the Union
Stock Yards company.at South St.Paul,
has called a meeting of the representa
tives of all lines that handle stock into
South St. Paul to be held at the Com
mercial club next Monday. The pur
pose of the meeting is to devise a plan
to avoid delay in getting stock from
Mississippi street to the South 'St. Paul
At the present -time the Chicago
Great Western hauls all such stock to
the yards, but lt has no way in which
to ascertain that stock Is at the Mis
sissippi street yards, except by Inves
tigating, and, as engines cannot run
about the yards looking for stray cars
of cattle, it is oft times the case that
a car will be left, and thus cause un
necessary delay, although no one can
It has been suggested that a tem
porary spur be constructed and devoted
to the stock traffic exclusively, and
that all stock coming in the yards be
switched on this spur so that all can
be taken to the South St. Paul yards
at the time that the Great Western
engines make their regular trips. The
matter will be thoroughly discussed at
the meeting Monday, and it is certain
that, If this plan Is not adopted, some
thing similar will be decided on.
B. _. O. SECURES RELIEF.
Finally Granted a Differential Be
tween Plttftburg; and Chicago.
NEW YORK. July __,-The board of arbl-
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE FKIDAY JULY 22, 1893,
trators of the Joint Traffic association has
rendered a favorable decision on the appeal
of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad of differen
tial fares ln both directions between Chicago
and Pittsburg. Under this decision, effective
Aug. 1, rates between Chicago and Pittsburg,
via tha Baltimore & Ohio railroad and con
nections, will be $10.50 first-class and $9 sec
ond-class, which wlllglve to that line as low
rates between the two points as any of Its
competitors. This question has been a con
tention between the different lines for sev
eral years and the decision of the board of
arbitrators, granting relief to the Baltimore
& Ohio railroad, is a source of no little satis
faction to the officials ot that line.
ROADS' REALTY VALUES.
Experts on the Stand In the Ore
DULUTH, Minn., July 21.— 1n the ore
rate case today real estate values were
threshed over all day. Col. C. H.
Graves was on the stand in cross-ex
amination, and Attorney Billson for the
complainants endeavored to stagger
the witness with some comparisons on
his valuations of land at Two Harbors,
owned by the Duluth & iron Range
toad. He showed that Graves' valua
tion of Two Harbors' land, occupied for
railway purpcs_s alone, was double the
entire real and personal assessed valu
ation of Duluth when lt had the same
population. The witness refused to be
feazed and stuck to his figures.
He was then asked if he knew he had
put a higher figure on this land than
a two-mile dock frontage on Rice's
Point, ln the heart of Duluth, covered
by docks, mills, elevators, railways, etc.,
would sell for today. He still claimed
his figure modest. He had a.so estimat
ed 640 acres of wild land adjoining Two
Harbors, at $250,000, and was subjected
to some sarcastic comment on this ac
Following him was J. H. Upham, who
had made an estimate of lands along
the entire line of road, and whose di
rect examination was concluded at ad
journment. This afternoon, plaintiffs
attempted to Show the absurdity en his
totals. This real estate examination
may continue a day or two longer.
TRAINMEN'S WAGES INCREASED.
Great Northern Raises Pay of Con
ductors and Bi-al.cmen.
It is said that the consultations held
by the officials and employes of the
Great Northern have resulted in an
agreement that is satisfactory to all
in that there will be a J 'uniform method
of checking up the time of train hands
The pay of conductors on work train

rates between San FrteciscO and Nr,v York
are being made. The- cut hi rates is said to
be spreading over the en|lre cla3s:;icatlon

WOMEN AS BANKERS. *
They manage Rival Financial In
■tltntlolns at Burlington, Wis.
BROWN'S IiAI.E, Wis.. July 21.— In
an unusual manner the financial affairs
of the little town of Burlington, near
which Is this popular resort, are ad
vertised to the world. The rival banks
of the town are both presided over
by women, and the manner in which
both men and women talk and write
about these financiers, who cash their
checks, has spread like a problem in
arithmetical progression. Both banks
have women presid&ots and one has a
woman cashier. Mrs. Florence Hall
is the president of the Bank of Bur
lington. She succeeded to the offlce
through the death of her husband, who
established the bank a few years ago.
Mrs. Hall, besides being master of ev
ery detail of the business, finds time to
engage in other money-making
schemes,. She owns a fine cottage on
Brown's lake and builds others to rent
to persons who come here to spend the
Mrs. Eliza Meinhardt is the president
of the other bank. Together with her
son and daughter, she established the
bank seven years ago. It has since
become a state bank, and is in a flour
ishing condition. Miss Edith Meinhardt
is the cashier and is assisted by her
brother, Albert. Miiss Meinhardt is said
to be one of the best-informed bankers
in Wisconsin. Each of these banks has
a capital of $25,000, and both are state
banks. The institutions are close to
gether, the presidents being able to
talk to each other out of the -back
Jackson County, Kentucky, Cut Off
From Outside World.
LOUTS VI L.LE, Ky., July 21.— The
state board of health issued a procla
mation today placing the whole of
Jackson county and each of its inhabi
tants under rigid quarantine from the
OU__.de world. The board found that
there have been more than 100 cases
of smallpox in the county. The facts
were laid before the county authorities,
and an effort was made to have an ap
propriation made by the county court
as designated by law. The court de
clined, although there is money in th 3
treasury. The state board now calls on
the adjoining counties to enforce strict
quarantine against Jackson county
along Its enltire boundary. Evasion cf
the quarantine incurs heavy penalties
Dr. McCormack, secretary of the boa.d,
"The stale board of healfh was very
reluctant to take this action, because
it is the first time in sixteen years that
an absolute quarantine has been de
clared. But the danger was so great
and involved so many people and in
terests of the state that we concluded
only rigorous measures would meet the

Commandment to Be Literally En
forced in Rew York.
NEW YORK, July 21. — President
Guggenheimer, of the city council, an
nounced yesterday that he was about
to take a hand in the crusade against
profanity in public places. He is now
at work on an ordinance to prohibit
the use of profane and obscene lan
guage in the streets, parks, cars, fer
ries and all places where it is likely
to offend the ears of the public. He
believes there is altogether too much
loud profanity in the streets of New
Tork, and he feels that the only way
it can be suppressed is to make its
use in all public place punishable
either by a Heavy fine or a term of im
prisonment. He will submit his ideas
to the councilmen informally, and, if
he finds that there is a sentiment
among them in favor of such an or
dinance, he will press its passage at
an early date.
