A T10RKIBL.B 6T0BV FROM MILWAUKEE.
MILWAUKEE, Oot. 22.The Sentinel of to
morrow morning will contain an account of
houible atrocities in the Milwaukee house of
correction. This institution is used at the
discretion of the court as a State prison. An
intelligent convict, just released, whose char
acter for veracity is vouched for by prominent
persons who knew him intimately, states that
he has been an inmate three years, all that
time not allowed to write to friends or counsel
01 family, who suppose him dead. He says the
bread furnished convicts, ior which the county
pays $6 a barrel, is damaged corn feed and
cannot be baked, while the meat is putrid.
During his confinement dogs and glandered
horses were furnished as meat, and he brings
the bone*, which are in the possession of the
editor of the Sentinel. Details of tne feed are
horrible beyond expression. Speaking of the
brutalities of the keepers he says that the con
victs were beaten and pit into the black hole,
which IB a nlthy dog kennel, five feet four
inches by five. A man can't he at length in it,
it has no ventilation, and the floor is covered
with excrement. One man was placed in there
for twenty days, and two died. A chair factory
is connected with the institution and it is
charged that the police are in collusion with
the superintendent to kidnap men to work in
the shop. The whole story is the most startling
and revolting published in this century. It is
claimed that the charges can all be verified.

Last night Officer Zirklebach, while patrol
ling his beat, heard a noise in the new addition
being built to the Sherman house at the corner
of Fourth and Sibley. As he started across the
street he saw a man with his arms full of
tools come out of the door on Sibley street.
The fellow seeing the officer dropped his load
and started to run but was immediately col
lared and taken to the lock up. He refused to
give his name, bat from his appearance it is
thought his name is Powers and that he re
turned two weeks ago from a two years' visit
to the State prison at Stillwater. Upon inves
tigation it was found that two tool chests had
been broken open, the contents of one being
the load which the thief had when arrested. It
is supposed that by this arrest the whereabouts
of the tools wh ch have been stolen during the
past tew days will be discovered.

Which te of the Class Calculated to Retard
tbe Growth of St. Paul.
The district court was engaged on yester
day, and will resume to-day, the trial of an
important case entitled John Pittorf vs. The
St. Paul & Sioux City liailroad company.
The suit is brought up on an appeal
from the decision of certain commis
sioners, Mebsrs. Albert Armstrong,
Wm. Lindeke .and Pascal Smith,
appointed to condemn and aaseaB damages
on property to be used by the St. Paul and
Sioux City railroad company for the site of
their railroad shops, transfer houses, etc.
The commissioner found it necessary to take
three-fourths of a lot belonging to plaintiff,
Pittorf, in Stinson, Ramsey and Brown's
addition, and awarded him $700. therefor.
The plaintiff appealed from this award, and
claims that his lot, number 18 in block 28 in
the addition named, though his house was
left, is ruined to the full extent of $.2,000.
Hon. W. .P. Murray and Hon. James
Smith, Jr., appeared for defendaut, and the
plaintiff's interests are committed to Hon.
C. D. O'Brien. The case is one of
interest, and may be made a test one. If
the plaintiff obtains a verdict other appeals
may follow, and the work of the commission
be virtually undone. The line of argument
adopted by the plaintiff is that tbe con
demnation was inaugurated by
the Business Men's Union
and that Messrs. Armstrong and Lindeke,
commissioners, are, as well, members of the
union, and in consequence being interested
parties, their condemnation or assessment of
damages should be taken cum grano. The
taking of evidence will continue this morn
ing, aud the case will doubtless go to the
jury this afternoon.

Special Telegram to the Globe.
OHIOAOO, Oct. 22.As was predicted in
my telegram to tbe GLOBE last night, the
wheat market opened lower this morning,
owing to European advices, whioh indicated
a downward tendency. The drop was 1%
cents, but on rumor of better cables the de
cline was recovered and an advance of two
cents from the lowest point took place.
These latter cable rumors proved false, and
reliable reports both from New York and
Liverpool had a bad effect on the market. It
dosed on the regular afternoon board
at $1.18 for November and $1.20
for December. This is about three
cents below the close of the market Tues
day. There is an evident shaky feeling
among tbe bulls, for after the board Novem
ber sold on the curbstone at $1.17.%. De
cember was weak on the curb at the dosing
price on the board. Th bears ere ready for

A terribly painful accident took place
about two miles beyond Lake Phalen night
before last which in all probability will re
sult in the victim's death. The victim to
the unfortunate affair, a tanner named
Peter Nelson, was accidentally struck on the
head and frightfully injured by a 6tone
thrown by a hired man. The la-'ter indi
vidual was in the aet of cleaning a quantity
of rubbish from the floor of the barn, in
tbe course of which he threw a large stone
through the open door into the area beyond.
Mr. Nelson appeared in tbe door way just as
tbe stone was thrown, whioh struck him
with full force between the eyes. fell to
the ground unconscious, and was carried to
the house where he remained insensible for
a long time. Dr. Talbot Jones, of this city,
was summoned, and a diagnosis of the in
juries showed that the nose had been brok
en, and the skull fearfully crushed. Tbe
case is considered critical and the patient's
condition is extremely precarious, grave
doubts being entertained of his recovery.
Combining for Charitable Work,
To-day an important meeting, embracing all
the public charities of whatever character in
the State, will take place at the rooms of the
Y. M. C. A. The convention will meet under
the auspices of the Relief society, of this city,
or rather at the suggestion of tbe society, and
the object is to arrange and harmonize all dif
ferences arising in the work of the several
charities, either here or in Minneapolis, or
elsewhere. Propositions will be made and
planB devised whereby there can be an inter
change of beneficiaries from this city to Min
neapolis and elsewhere, or vice versa, according
to the character of the charity from
whioh relief is sought, when one place
maintains one institution of relief and a dif
ferent charity is supported elsewhere. For
instance, Minneapolis has no Home for the
Friendless, St. Panl has. If tbe convention
proves harmonious, Minneapolis may hereafter
have her friendless cared for here, which she
reciprocates in some cher way. The convert
tion meets to-day at 10 o'clock.

disorderly conduct in Gebhardt's saloon on Van
Buren street, on Oct. 16, and Welch with beat

on the political situation by Billy Rice, and
the burlesque of "Pinafore" by the entire
company. The latter was brim full of fun,
and Billy Rice as Sweet Little Butterbowl kept
the audience in a roar. There was but one
opinion among those who attendeu, and that
was that the entertainment was the biggest
thing in minstrelsy ever seen in St. Paul.
