Lack of interest, apathy that
threatens dire results is the situation
that faces the Republican city and
county organization. This one demor
alizing feature dominated the meeting
of the organization in the headquarters
on Fourth street last night.
Some of the committeemen contended
that the candidates were responsible,
while others laid it at the door of the
voters themselves, but none were able
to offer a satisfactory solution. The

with us for butter. In other words,
each one of them says to us In ef

You never come home to find you

your order you trouble your head

The postage bill of the Republican
organization is said to be its largest
liability, close on to $1,000 already
having been expended in St. Paul alone,
but despite the expenditure little en
thusiasm has been stirred. Yesterday
postal cards were sent to every votei
in St. Paul calling his attention to
registration day and asking his sup

At the meeting last night the executive
committee was given a free rein in
furnishing enthusiasm for the closing
weeks of the campaign. This will in
clude every speaker available, who will
be made to stump every ward in the

G o'clock in the morning as possible.
That is the advice impressed on all
voters by the Central committee.
With the forthcoming election scarce
two weeks distant and only two regis
tration days remaining, every effort is
being mad 1 by the local leaders of the
two parties to bring out the voters and
sco that they register. These two reg
istration days are next Tuesday and
Saturday, and after that if any one is
derelict in his duty, he has only him
self to blame. It won't be because he
was not informed of because of lack of

made to get them to come forward and

Welborne Has Reasons.
In a recent address P. C. Stevens,
the Republican candidate for congress
frcm this district, remarked that no
good reasons could be found for the
Afro-American leaving the "grand old
party," Irvin W. Welborne, a local
Afro-American leader, differs with Mr.
Stevens and has sent the following to
The Globe in reply:
"As the Hon. F. C. Stevens has asserted
that there are no reasons for the Afro-
American to change his politics, and no
cause for the change from the g. o. p.,
I, as an Afro-American, will on Oct. 20,
Monday, show to every intelligent negro
of St. Paul that his political salvation de
pends upon him changing his political
"I further state that I will discuss the
principles of the two parties, as to the
Afro-American's political benefit, with
any intelllg-ent Republican Afro-Amer
ican of the state, at any time and place
that may be agreed upon.
"Hoping that some of the Republican
Afro-Americans will accept this.

Labor Leaders Take Position.
Local labor leaders resent the idea
that John Swift, of Minneapolis —who
was announced as a prominent union
man who would make speeches s for
Bernard Zimmermann in the Fifth
ward senatorial fight—ln any way rep
resents union labor sentiment in St.
Paul. Mr. Swift has not yet appeared
on the stump in John H. Ives' district,
and probably will not now that the
labor organ, the Union Advoate, has
expressed itself with regard to Senator
Ives. The Advocate says:
"Senator John H. Ives Is asking the
voters of the Fifth and Sixth wards of
St. Paul for a re-election to the senate
of Minnesota. For three sessions—two
regular and one special—he has served
not only his immediate constituents, but
the state at large, as an earnest and cap
able advocate of fair play and of sound
state policy. His talent has been freely
exercised for that class of statutes that
cut a figure in the humanitarian sense;
his voice has never been raised against
a demand of the laboring masses for in
dustrial betterment. On the contrary,
Senator Ives has been a 'stand-by' for the
union principle in the legislature as in
daily life. He is the author of the law
making Labor day a legal holiday in Min
nesota, and his vote has invariably been
cast for the many beneficent measures
known as 'labor laws..' "
Democratic meetings will be held in
the Second and Ninth wards and by

Fires at Prowler.
Despite the vigilance of the Minneapo
lis police, the Pillsbury family was vis
ited by burglars again Thursday. The
marauders were unprovided with a brass
band and beat on tom-toms, but still
they were discovered. The discovery was
not made by the police, however, and
the thieves might as well not have been
discovered, as they made away success
fully with a handsome haul.
The plunder consisted of jewelry valued
at $950 —evidently the residue of the rich
pick-up which porch-climbers made sev
eral days ago, and which they supposedly
overlooked at the time. A friend of the
family ventured the opinion last night
that the burglars had evidently discov
ered their carelessness on the occasion of
their first visit by reading the Minneapo
lis newspapers, and returned out of pro
fessional pride to complete the job.
Heirlooms Are Taken.
Entrance was made by a second-story
window while the family was at dinner.
The loot consisted largely of brooches,
rings, stick-pins and watches, many of
the articles being heirlooms and cherished
family keepsakes. The police department
has taken Its cue dutifully and is giving
another touching exhibition of palm ele
vation. There has been an investigation

COMMISSION MEN MAY
LEAVE THIRD STREET
Heavy Transactions in Vicinity of New
Jackson Street Market Are Sig
There are unconfirmed rumors that
Third street will lose its well-earned
title of "commission row." before an
other year has passed. Reported heavy
transactions in real estate in the vi
cinity of the new Jackson street mar
ket, and negotiations now in progress
for residence property would indicate
that the commission houses will ulti
mately pull up stakes and locate in
that locality. One transaction, it is
said, involves an entire block on Jack
son and one on Temperance streets.
"It's news to me," said J. E. Mul
rooney, of the commission house of
J. E. Mulrooney & Co., last night. I
don't say that the row will not in time
be located in the vicinity of the new
market, but somebody will have to
make a bid for the business by erect
ing suitable buildings before it is done.
The commission men can't. The sub
ject of moving to the new market was
agitated among the dealers on Third
street last spring, but as there were
no buildings suitable it was dropped.
If some one cares to erect the build
ings I would not be surprised to hear
of a general move."
The four blocks facing the market
are now mostly given over to residence
property. On the corners the majority
of them have been removed, but the
others still remain. The value of the
property there, It is said, has increased
almost double during the last year, and
for some lots fancy prices are being

of Sculpture Ruckstuhl to the grounds

committee, were made public today. The
plans have not yet been approved. A
committee composed of Augustus St.
Gaudens, J. A. Ward and Daniel C,
French, three well known sculptors of
America, has been summoned to St. Louis
to act with Chief Ruckstuhl in digesting

There will be on the fair grounds about

AT GHOSTLY SOUNDS
Fears to Enter Undertaker's Shop Whence
Came Bloodcurdling ,
Patrolman John Llndou suffered an ex
perience the other night which nearly
convinced him of the existence of ghosts.
Among the numerous duties of a patrol
man is that of seeing that careless peo
ple do not forget to lock their doors. As
the patrolman was' trying the doors on
his beat he came to Willwerscheid's un
dertaking parlors, on St. Peter street, a
place if any calculated to be full of hair
raising mysteries, especially in the early
hours of the night. Much to his surprise,
the officer found the door open. He
pushed it farther and listened. Prom
the deep darkness within there came a
roaring sound like the groan of a ghost,
a weird, bloodchilling, ominous sound far
more disheartening than the creak of a
tombstone. The officer listened for a
moment. Then he sought his fellow of
ficer on the adjoining beat.
"There's something wreng at the un
dertaker's," he said, telling what he had
"Why didn't you go in?" asked the
"What; go in there! Why, don't you
know people go Into trances 7 Do you
suppose Id go in there and bump up
against any of those dead corpses mov
The pair returned to the undertaking
parlors. They pushed open the door and
entered. They listened. The unearthly
noise was still going on. A chair fell
over suddenly. They stopped. Then a
sleepy voice from the back room drawled:
"What's the matter with you fellows?"
It was the watchman, employed by the
undertaker. He had been snoring on a
bench in the room, and because of
his presence there the door was not
locked. But anything less than a full ex
planation would have added another to
the number who still cling to the cher
ished belief in ghosts.
MOTHER SELLS HER
BOY WITH HER STORE
Woman Tells Policeman She Has No
Use for -jzd That He Goes
With Sale of Candy Place.
NEW YORK, Oct. 18.—Abraham
Hortzan was found Wednesday nig-ht
In Rutgers Slip Park and arrested by
the police as a homeless boy. When
in court the following morning he gave
his age as eleven years and said the
last home he had known was at No.
221 East Broadway, where his moth
er formerly kept a candy store, but
had sold it to a Mrs. Solomon.
Investigation was made by the Chil
dren's society, and the agent reported
that the boy's mother, who had mar
ried again, lived at No. 131 Broome
street with her husband, Hyman Wahl,
and three younger children.
Mrs. Wahl told the policemen that
she did not want the boy, that her
husband would not have him in the
house and thai when she sold the
store the boy went with it
In the children's court Friday the
boy was discharged in her custody,
and she was told that she must look
out for him.
She walked out of the court, the
boy following like a dog, the mother
never looking his .way. On Third ave
nue Mrs. Wahl got on a car and left
the boy to get t«, her home the best
Two hours after, when court ad
journed and the clerks were going
home they found Abraham sitting on
the court house steps. He told them
that his stepfather had again kicked
him out of the house. The child, not
knowing where to go or what to do,
had come back to the only true friends
he had ever known. He was taken to
a restaurant and fed and then taken
to the Children's society, where he
was kept for the night.
The boy was again arraig/ied before
Justice Olmsted yesterday morning
and remanded until Tuesday, when
his mother will be brought to court
and some disposition made of the case.
The boy is a manly little fellow.

City Will Deal In Coal.
RICHMOND, Ind., Oct. 18.—The city
council has authorized a special committee
to go Into the retail coal business. The
committee reported that it could procure
Pittsburg and Allegheny coal delivered at
$4.82 a ton. which is more than $2 less
than local dealers are charging. The

$5.50 if the city would keep out of the
business, but the offer was declined. The
city proposed to accept a price of $5.25,
but to this the dealers would not agree.

ITHACA, N. T., Oct. 18.—Speaking here
tonight, former Senator David B. Hill,
referring to the coal strike situation and
to the plank in the Democratic state plat

the coal mines, said:
"I am not here to take back one word
of this coal plank, but I am here to stand
by it, and I do stand by it, because it is
the only way of settling this question per
manently. I am not here to say when it
will be necessary or best for the gov
ernment to so act, but I am here to stand
by this plank."
