Btpiblleus at St. Paul Elect Their City Ticket and Have Many Votes to Sparc. Wright for Major Gets Nearlj Four Thousand Majority—First Time in Twenty Tears. Minnesota Grand Lodge A. 0. U. W. In Session at St. Paul—The Officers. Other Items. ST. PAUL, May 5.—The city election surprised the natives. There has been one of the hottest campaigns on record here daring the past two weeks, and even up to the time the polls closed, both sides were claiming victory, but neither woald hazard a gness as to the majority anticipated. Soon after the returns began to come in it was evident that the Republicans had elected their mayor, comptroller, and treasurer. At 1 o'clock the majority was estimated at 1,500, but at o'clock a. in. it was found that it would be not less than 3,000, and probably more. Not only that, but the upper branch of the assem bly was almost entirely Republican, with a probability that the lower branch would be of the same complexion. Later returns only served to increase the majorities, and the total vote shows Wright to have been elected by a ma jority of 3,793. Both branches of the council are Republican beyond ques tion. The issues of the election were purely local, all factions uniting to "down the gang." MINNESOTA A. O. U. W. The Grand Lode* in Session at St. Paul. OfHcnr* Elected. ST.

D., May 5.—J. Bud- weiler, owner of the ranch of the Heavenly Rest, who was in the city Tuesday, reports that bears are plenti ful in his neighborhood. Wednesday night a bear of the grizzly species, evidently drawn thither by the smell of "Bud's" bacoa and slapjacks, sneaked up to the house and was about to make off with the repast, when Lion, ''Bud's" dog, rushed around the house and gave battle to bruin. The battle was short, sharp and decisive, and resulted in the bear carrying Lion, weighing fifty-six pounds, bodily away. District Conventions. ST.

Fifty Per Cent. Soon. ST. PAUL, May 5.—Herman Scheffer, cashier of the suspended Commercial bank, said that the bills receivable were being collected as fast as possible, and it is certain, he declares, that 50 per cent, of the deposits will be paid in a very short time. "In the end," he says, "every depositor will bs paid in full, and there will be something left for the stockholders. Our business was chiefly in small paper, and that is the safest kind. The big losses come on big dis counts." May Krect ft Mill. DEADWOOD, S. D., May 5. —Professor Eames, of Baltimore, Md., has arrived in the city in the interests of a New York syndicate to examine the Chey enne group of mines as to their fitnesi for a large mill and reduction plant, which will be erected should the pro fessor's report be favorable.

Lady Cook, viscountess of Montserra, nee Tennesse Claflin, is in Chicago also, while Mrs. Martin's young daughter. Seula Maud Woodhull, is in New York. "It has been a prophesy," said Mrs. Martin, "that' I should be made presi dent of the United StateB in 1892. The philosophy of my teaching is getting more deeply grounded in this country every year, and between now and next November it will sweep as a storm over the land, and I shall receive a triumph ant vindication at the hands of those who were once my traducers, no less a vindication than the presidency of this great country." "Our plan of campaign is simple. We have organized Victoria leagues in New York, Pittsburg, and here in Chicago. From these central leagues local Vic toria leagues will be formed in every city, town and Tiamlet in this country, fit Through these the philosophy of our teachings shall be made known and be fore fall they shall be known to all." "We shall return to London in two weeks, and in September next we will pay another visit to the United States. Tbe convention which will nominate me as the standard bearer of the new party will meet in Chicago in October. I have no doubt as to the success of our movement, and I know beyond the per adventure of a doubt, that I shall be made the next president of the United States. It is a prophesy. It is my des tiny." Stove Founders at Chicago. CHICAGO, May 5.—The Stove Foun ders' National Defense association held the first session of its seventh annual convention at the Palmer house. About seventy delegates were in attendance and others arriving. The meeting was called to order bv President Cribben, of Chicago firm of Cribben & Sexton.

Fear More Have Feriahed. WINNIPEG, May 5.—Reports just re ceived from the Northwest Territory indicate that last week's storm in Mani toba, in which two settlers lost their lives, was quite as severe in the North west. The MacLeod stage, which left that town on Monday, has not yet been heard from. The driver did not reach the first stopping place, fifty miles from MacLeod, and it is supposed that he has been lost on the prairie. Dr. Loving heart, who left nearly ten weeks ago for Kneehill creek for coal, has not been heard of since, and it is supposed that he has been lost in the Btorm. A party of mounted police bave gone out to search for the missing men.

Mlae MtDaiiiMi the Abdacted low* •«h«nl Teacher, Tell* Her Story. DES MOINES, May 5.—The abducted school teacher from Buchanan county has told her story to the Des Moines newspapers. Miss McDonald describes vividly the week of horror through which she has passed. It came to an end in an obscure boarding house in this city last Suuday when the abduct or, Bain, became afraid of consequences and ran away from his strange made wife. She says just as she turned a corner near her school house, near In dependence, she was confronted by Bain who had a revolver in hiB hand. He seized her by the arm and under threats of instant death compelled her to get into a top buggy that was in waiting. On the way to the station Bain told her that he would remove the gag, but said that if she made a single move to escape be would shoot her dead. At Walker they took the train to Cedar Rapids. Reaching Cedar Rapids they were driven in a c^ to a hotel, where they spent the night. They then took the train for Des Moines, arriving Sunday and going to Mr. Tusent's house where Bain engaged rooms, stating they were man and wife. The next day he took her to a church two blocks north or west, she does not remember which, where they were married, Bain keeping her cowed during the ceremony by whispering to her that he would kill her if she resisted. They then returned to the boarding house where they stayed until Bain fled, and she told the above story. The detectives are on the track of the bold abductor. DARK AS EREBUS. One of the Siraugest of Phenomena Tran«|»irinjg at Topeka. TOPEKA, Kan., May 5.—One of the strangest phenomena that ever occurred in Kansas is now transpiring. It is 12 o'clock noon, but for all that it might as well be midnight as far as any light is concerned. It is dark as Erebus, the stores and dwellings being lighted by gas or electricity. It has been raining again all forenoon, and heavy black clouds have settled down, completely enveloping tne city. The rain has been extraordinarily heavy, and great fear of more damage by fljod and wind are ex pressed. CONGRESSIONAL. The Senate. WASHINGTON, "May 5.—Tho opening proceedings of the senate were almost devoid of public interest, and the buzz of private conversation almost drowned the discussion of the rontine matters called up from the calendar and passed. The Hoo«e. WASHINGTON, May 5. When the journal was approved Mr. Geary, of California, presented the conference re port on the Chinese bill. After consid erable discussion the report was adopted. Palacio Become* AgKreaalve. NEW YORK, May 5.—A special dis patch to The Herald from Barcelona, Venezuela, says Palacio has Bent an army from the capitol to engage the enemy. A battle may be expected Boon south of Caracas. The object of the president in this move seems to draw the revolutionists away from Valencia and Calabozo, which they now sur round, preventing communication be tween the government generals Ybarra, Aran jo and asanas, who are located in this town and the capitol. If Palacio's forces should prove victorious they will undoubtedly march to the relief of the besieged city. Palacio seems to have arrived at the conclusion that he must act aggressively or the federalists will become so powerful that they will sweep all before them. Dying of Starvation. ST. JOHNS, N. F., May 5.—Informa tion from the northern coasts depict a wretched condition of affairs. Owing to the ravages of grip last year the in habitants were unable to gather their usual catch of fish. Just before naviga tion closed the government sent the people of Flowers Cove sixty barrels of flour to save them from perishing dur ing the winter. For five months they bave been cut off from the outside world by ice. Early in February the people watched with horror the con sumption of the last handful of flour. How they have lived since then no one knows. Some people have already perished from starvation. Track* Washed Out. GOSHEN, Ind., May 5.—The rising waters resulting from the late rains have done much damage in this vicinity. The Elkhart river is higher than it has been since 1845, The electric light and gaB plants are both under water and many families along the bottoms were compelled to move oat at midnight. The lower floors of all the factories and nills along the hydraulic are submerged tnd a large force of men has been at work on the Goshen dam all day.

A dozen years ago one of the brightest of the good-humored satirists was Bob Burdette—but ever sinoe the death of tbe "little princess" he has been almost entirely silent gone to preachiug, it is Baid. Still, he bubbles over occasionally, and his last is the dis covery of the use of a man's thumb as a preventive of profanity. When a fellow pounds his thumb with a tack hammer or jams it between two joints of stove pipe, says Bob, be incontinently stuffs tbe injured member in bis mouth, there by Btopping the flow of cuss words. ThiB is rather ingenious, but so far from having any use for his thumb as a pro fanity stopper, the man who selects The Burlington as his line for a railroad ride could be without thumbs. Tbe roadbed is BO smooth, and the equipment and accommodations BO superb, that the passenger is always of tranquil mind. For any information, address W. J. C. Kenyon, Gen. PDBS.

This term might be applied to Stevens Point, located on the Wisconsin Central Lines, at the gate way to the vast forest region which extends north to Lake Superior, a distance of 200 miles without a break, on account of its vast lumber interests. The Wisconsin river to which the lumbermen have given the familiar and somewhat affectionate title of "Old Wiscons," not alone acts as a lumber feeder to the city by furnishing through its numerous tributaries an outlet for thousands of acres of pine in the upper country, but it furnishes a water power that is second only to that of Neenah and Menasba which cities are located on the "Central. Million of feet of lumber are cut every year, giving employment to hundreds of men. In addition to the lumber trade, it has numerous other manufactories it is here where the large car shops of the Wisconsin Central lines are located. For tickets, maps, pamphlets and full information apply to G. F. McNeill, P. & T. A., Minneapolis, Minn., or to Jas. O. Pond, general passenger and ticket agent, Chicago, 111.
