Huns: Were the Heavens in Black.
About one o'clock yesterday afternoon a
•uilden and furious wind and rain storm vis
ited St. Paul, which, after aS, bo far as can
be learned, did not result in any very serious
damage. It seemed to come mostly from
the northeast, though a part of the time it
appeared to come from all directions. When
first Been the heavens were tilled
and banked up with immense
clouds, dark and angry looking,
and very threatening. The streets were
filled withdust,and the wind whistled around
fearfully, while the wind was blowing the
hardest men, women and children could be
•cen hurrying up and down the streets In all
directions in search of a place of safety. A
part of the time the streets wen? 60 filled with
dust that it was next to an impossibility to
tee the houses at a little distance. On the
opposite tide of the river the air
was co filled with dust ( r rain, or
both, that it appeared a» though
immense curtains were dropped dovro from j
the clouds, through which it was impossible
to see the West St. Paul side.
During the storm the lightning struck a
house on Custer street, West St. Paul, owned
by E. Langevin and occupied by a family by
the name of Moore, tearing off a portion of
the roof but doiug no other damage. No one
was injured. Several trees in different parts
of the city were blown down. A small
frame barn on Twelfth street was partly de
In some other pirts of the city fences were
ripped away and destroyed.
During the fury of the gale a woman pass
ing on East Seventh street was blown off
her feet and thrown prone on the ground.
In the upper part of the city a large window
of a store building was blown out and de
Telegraph wires were deranged by the
strain of the dizzy breeze, and for an hour or
two electric communication was much em
The great shower of street dust had a very
gritty effect upon the lines filled with Mon
day's wash, and the clothes .had to go back
to the wash tubs for a second cleansing.
It wasn't much of a shower after all.
Filed Yesterday by Justices Vander
burgh and Berry.
Calvin W. Taylor, respondent, vs. the city of
Austin, appellant.
Syllabus — Where a municipal corporation
Whose charter gives it the authority to con
struct, regulates and keep in repair sewers,
has assumed the control and management of
of a sewer in one of the public streets under
its supervision, it is immaterial by whom the
same Was originally constructed; and it Is
bound to use reasonable diligence to keep
such sjjver iv repair as in other cases.
Anffwhere the complaint alleged that at a
given* date the defendant negligently suf
fered such sewer to become obstruct
ed and neglected and refused
to put the same in repair, by reason of which
plaintiff's cellar was overflowed and he was
deprived of the use, evidence that on several
occasions within that time his cellar was
Hooded from the same cause was properly re
Evidence upon the question of defendant's
alleged negligence considered and held to
make v case for the jury.
William Stone, respondent, vs. Louis A.
Evans, appellant.
Syllabus — Ir?an action by a husband from
damages resulting to himself from injuries
to his wife caused by the mal-practicc of a
physician, damages for loss of service which
appears necessarily to result from the nature
of the injury, may be recovered as part of
the general damages without being specially
Damages for the mental anxiety or the in
jured feelings of a bu.sband, lather or mother,
if recoverable at all in such cases,
are to be allowed by the jury
as matter of aggravation upon consideration
of the facts and circumstances of the case,
and not upon the statements of witnesses as
to the amount of such damages.
Where it appeared upon the introduction
in evidence of a deposition that the cross
interrogatories annexed to the commission
bad not been answered, but it clearly ap
peared that the material facts testified to in
chief by flu; witnesses were already con
clusively established or were not disputed on
the trial, held that the reception of the depo
sition under tlie circumstances was error
without yejudice.
Order affirmed. Vandebbdrgh, J.
John T. Eldridge, appellant vs. the Minne
apolis iS: St. Louis Railway company re
Syllabus — To rejbut the presumption of
negligence in a railroad company, arising
from an accident by which the plaintifl was
injured, the defendant offered evidence of
the circumstances of the accident, the char
acter and actual condition of the cars, road
lied, and track and of the speed and man
agement of the train, and also witm
tending to show that' the track and
cars were well built and in good
condition and that the train was
properly managed. Held to make a case for

The granting of a motion for a new trial
for newly discovered evidence is largely in
the discretion of the trial court and where
such discretion appears to have been fairly
exercised, In determining such motions its
action In the premises will not be reversed.
Order affirmed. Vaxdkkuuroh, J.
A lon son Hinman, appellant, vs. A. V. Hey
deratadt and Peter Henry, respondents.
Syllabus Defendant peacefully entered on
the premises In controversy under a bona
lido claim of title, and cut and removed the
grass growing thereon.
The title having been subsequently ad
judged to be in the plaintiff, held in an ac
tion by him for the conversion of the hay,
that the proper measure of his damages was
the value of the standing grass, and not the
value of the hay after it was removed,.
Nesbitt vs. Lumber company, 21 Minn.,
4-92, distinguished. \
When a trespass is the result of inadvert
ence or mistake, and there is no intentional
wrong, the value of the property when first
taken must govern, or if the conversion sued
for was after value had been added to it by
tho work of the defendant he should in such
..case be credited with this addition.
Order allirmcd. Vanderbcrgh, J.
J. W. Win slow and Lydla D. Win slow, re
spondents, vs. The Dakota Lumber com
pany, appellants.
Syllabus — Evidence in the case considered
and held sufficient to support the verdict in
favor of plaintiff..
In an action by A against 15 for the price
of goods alleged to have been delivered to
C upon B's promise to pay for them the fact
that upon A's books of account the goods
were charged to C is proper to be considered
upon the question to whom was credit given,
but it is not decisive against toe admissibili
ty of the books in evidence.
Order denying a new trial affirmed.
Beret, J.
Win. Wilson, appellant vs. Patrick Reedy
and Hugh Reedy, respondents.
Syllabus — A harvesting machine was sold
to the defendants by plaintiff with warranty
of ite quality and capacity, and which he un
derstood was purchased by them for actual
use In harvesting a large crop of grain be
longing to them, hold that damages for in
jury to the grain from delay, while they were
experimenting with the machine and at
tempting to make it work, cannot fairly
be considered such as would arise
either naturally from the breach
of the contract, or just as may personally be
supposed to have been contemplated by the
parties when making the contract as a prob
able result of the breach. Frocach vs. (lain
nion, 28 Minn.. 477. Order reversed.
Elizabeth M. Bowers, respondent, vs. Chas -
E. Mayo and C. 11. Clark, partners as

acter and purpose and the fraudulent nature
of such possession thereof by him. Order

A Cavil From Urn-Ryan.
To the Editor of the Globe :
I fuel that your readers ought ti know
something about my experience with an ab
stract of tiile, that they may be on their
guard. I bought two lots in West St. Paul.
Iv 1873 I bought an abstract of title from
the register of deeds of Dakota county and
paid him for it on delivery, and before pay
ing for the property the title was examined
by Win. P. Murray; Esq., and pronounced
good, and according to the abstract the title
was good in the person I bought of; but ow
ing to a gross error in the abstract book 3of
Dakota count}- the real owner's name did
not appear when the records were transcribed
from Dakota to Ramsey county the error was
discovered, and I was both money and prop
erty out. I sued the register of deeds, was
beaten. I appealed to the supreme court,
and was atrain beaten. My friends, headed
by Gen. Adams, of Hastings, got an act
passed by the legislature authorizing the
board of county commissioners of Dakota
county to pay me. At one session of the
board my claim was rejected, but was at
another session taken up by the board and
allowed in part. The small souled chair
man ot the board Van Inwe
gan appealed to the district court
where I was again beaten. I, under advice
of my attorneys, appealed to the supreme
court, and as will appear in the following, I
was there again beaten, to-wit:
Timothy Ryan, appellant, vs. the Board of
County Commissioners of the county of
Dakota, respondent,
KyHithus — Under section 81, chaster 8, gen
eral statutes 187 S. the right of a county to
appeal from the allowance by the board of
county commissioners of a claim against it
is not affected by the character of the claim.
A resolution of a board of county commis
sioners that a certain claim presented to them
übeu be and hereby is rejected" shows that the
claim was considered and disallowed.
Chapter 216, special laws 1881, construed
and held that the authority of the board of
county commissioners to consider the claim
specified in it was exhausted when the board
had considered and disallowed the claim.
Judgment affirmed. Gilfillax, C. J.
Bo in the end, through errors in these ab
stracts and the poor protection afforded by
the law in regard to furnishing abstracts, I
am robbed out of my property, my money
paid for it, and out of hundreds of dollars
of attorneys fees and expenses. Let
this be a warning to your read
ers that under our ■ present laws
an abstract of title is of but little conse
quence, and more especially the abstracts of
Dakota county in affording information of
actual ownership. I hope no citizen will
have the experience I have had in this mat
ter — for it has almost made a tramp of me —
and the civil law having failed to protect me,
I feel as if I could join the Younger's or
the James gang and play for even. Re
spectfully yours, Tim Ryan. Sixth Ward.

Another Man's Wife,
On Sunday afternoon about 6 o'clock Chief
Walch received a telegram signed Mark
Brandon, dated at Albert Lea, directing the
arrest of a man by the name of Geo. Wilson
alias Leslie and a woman and four children
aged from seven to eleven years. Upon re
ceiving the notice the parties wanted were
found at the American house and the man
taken to the city hall. They were occupying
the same room which they had taken upon
their arrival on Saturday. After being
locked up the man admitted that she was
not his wife but was the wife of one l 'Bran
don," whom he styles as a worthless
lirute who drank and abused
his wife who took in washing
at Austin where they resided, to support her
self and her children. Wilson, who was
sailing under the name of Leslie, has been
employed for a long time as driver of the
"Fleck" house buss, and says he has been
acquainted with the family for some time,
and that he was always made a welcome vis
itor at their house. He says that the woman
had contemplated coming to Mankato for
some time, and that when she shipped her
household goods here, he was coming along,
and helped her to get here. When arrested,
his total assets were sixty-five cents, a rather
small capital to undertake the care of a
family of the size of the one he has on his
hands. ' The proper authorities are expected
to arrive from Austin.

Sri-ruth lift;/ Adeentiatn Encamped,
The success of the camp meeting was as
sured by the flue weather on Saturday and
Sunday, the two principal days. Several
thousand people visited the grounds on the
latter day. The best of order prevailed
thronghout. Three discourses were preached
in German and in Danish, and four in Eng
lish. The discourses were all upon the prin
cipal doctrines which distinguish the
people, for the purpose of getting them
before the strangers who thronged to hear.
Elder Van Horn spoke in regard to the Ad
vent doctrine. Elder H. W. Decker preached
an able discourse on the "Saints inheritance,
where is It!" Text, "Blessed are the meek for
they shall inherit the earth." The speaker
maintained that the earth was originally de
signed as an eternal abode of man. Eveiy
thing was beautiful and "good." Sin en
tered and the curse rested upon the fair cre
ation. Since then it has gradually failed
under the direful work of sin. At last puri
fying fires will rid the earth from the works
of man and then, renovated and renewed,
the earth will bloom in its original beauty.
It will become the final abode of the saved;
and thus the original plan of God will be
carried out.
The principal event in the services of the
day was the discourse of Elder E. W. Farns
•.vnrth on tlie observance of the seventh day
Sabbath for which tfiese people are chiefly
distinguished. The discourse was delivered
in two sections in the afternoon, to large
and intelligent audiences. An outline of
the sermon is as follows :
The Sabbath was made at the close of the
first week of time. It was instituted by
three distinct acts of the Creator, viz: rest
ing work on the seventh day, blessing the
day and sanctifying it, or setting it apart for
a sacred use. The commandment enforcing
its observance is placed in the decalogue.
The principle involved is the recognition of
t: c Creator by his creatures. Thi» principle,
the reason assigned for the Sabbath, or tbe
acts which constituted the Sabbath, will none
of them apply to the first day of the week, or
to any other day than the seventh.
It is generally supposed that the Sabbath
was chenged to the first day by the authority
of Christ and the apostles, but an examina
tion of the eight instances in which the
scriptures mention the first day of the week,
reveals no such fact. We have no record of
any example or precept by them for resting
upon or observiue that day. On the other
hand we read that it was Jesus' custom to
teach on tbe Sabbath, (seventh day) ; the
disciples "rested the Sabbath day according
to the commandment." There is a record
in at least five instances of Panl observing
the Sabbath. The Bible gives no account of
the change, but a careful scrutiny of early
history shows it was brought about gradually,
by first introducing Sunday as a festival. It
was aided by an edict of Constantine, A. D.,
831, and consummated by the church of
Rome in the Ninth century,a fact which they
do not wish to deny.
During the day the camp was thoroughly
canvassed for the denominational publica
Yesterday morning at a meeting of the
Sabbath School association the following offi
cers were chosen ; John Fulton, president;
W. B. White, vice president; E. S. Babcock,
secretary. At a meeting after breakfast a
movement wa3 considered to raise $25,000
for carrying forward the work. In a very
few minutes over f 17,000 was secured.
The liberality madifested was good evidence
of the attachment of the people to their
Elder Butler preached again at 11 o'clock
from "By grace are ye saved, through faith;
that not of yourselves, it is the gfft of God."
This was one of the most effective meetings
of the series. Many came forward for pray
ers, and all were deeply moved. About
twenty manifested a desire for baptism.
j Officers for conference were elected as fol-j
lows: O. A. Olsen, president; H. Grant, J.
Fulton, executive committee ;>D. P. Curtis,
secretary: Allen Moon, treasurer. The rain
in the afternoon interfered with the sevicices
somewhat, but not seriously.

June 28.— The Republican county central
committee met here this afternoon and fixed
on Monday, the 14th day of July, for elect
ing delegates to the congressional district
convention, to be held at Austiu July 24.
The returns of the assessor of this city are
now being reviewed by the city council. The
total of real estate amounts to $404,155; per
sonal property, $104,290; merchants have
listed under merchandise a total of $48,135;
the three banks and other capitalists and
moneyed rtien do list in all a total sum in
moneys and credits $14,250 — and the sum
embraces all the moneys and credits of our
whole city, but to make up the apparent de
ficiency in these figures representing their
wealth, each lists one sewing maching of the
value of $10 and one clock $2, and some of
them afford to keep a cow, which increases
their valuation $15. As shown by our asses
sor's returns, there are only two mules in
the city, and no hogs — that means of the
quadruped kind, of course.
Sheriff Larson left for Minneapolis this
afternoon. He is expected to bring back
with him here on Monday an eighteen year
old youth who some few days ago, in this
city, abstracted from the pockets of a sleep

Milo White's new postmaster steps into
office July 1, and Mr. Hanson, the present
incumbent, takes his leave in consequence
of Milo's civil service reform. It is gen
erally conceded that Milo himself will this
fall have to take some of the same medicine
he prescribed for Postmaster Hanson, and
the Democratic party of the district will ad
minister the bitter dose in November, if not
taken before then.
The candidacy of ex-Gov. Armstrong for.
congress against White has placed the mem
bers of the "graud old party" of the county
in a predicament, interesting and amusing
to the passive looker-on. At the last county
convention for election of delegates to the
St. Paul an 3. Winona conventions the usual
disgraceful rumpus between the two fighting
factions of the party was expected, but to
general surprise it ended in a grand love
feast. Ex-Gov. Armstrong was unanimous
ly elected chairman and a delegate to the
Winona convention, and as a further peace
offering the convention unanimously in
structed for his election as a delegate to Chi
cago. Gov. Armstrong made a conciliatory
spech full of the most beautiful and touching
pleas for peace and harmony, and they had
it; but. how brief that blessed peace. The
governor's candidacy is a new declaration of
war, and there will be music in the air from
now till the 14th, when they will have their

TF. H. English Before the Committee.
Washington, June 30.— W. H. English,
of Indiana, appeared again to-day before the
special house committee appointed to inves
tigate the charge made against him in using
improperly his privileges of the house floor
while an election case was pending. Eng
lish said before the committee of election
made its report he called at the homes of
Messrs. Turner, Cook, Converse and Low
ery, members of the committee, and talked
with them on the subject. Elliott, another
member of the committee, he saw at one of
the city hotels. He also had an interview
regarding the case with other members of
congress, including Springer, before the re
port was made. In his conversation with
these gentlemen ho tried by fair 1 arguments
to influence them in favor of his son, and to
get them to use their 'influence in his behalf
with the committee.
Question — it occur to you that any ac
tion you might take before the case was re
ported was improper? ..:•-' V, ';■
It did not. I honestly believed my eon
was fairly elected, and there was no impro
priety in my fairly presenting his side of the
Mr. Springer was then called to the stand.
He said English requested him to see Cook
and have him consider the case in favor of
his son. The witness did not think Cook
was present when the vote was taken, and
did not know whether or not he was paired.
Cook said Springer and a dozen other
members had spoked to him in regard to the
contest, but such was the common practice
in election 'cases. Springer's interest, he
said was personal, as he .had been intimately
connected with the English family for years.
