The Sisterhood of Bethany, that philan
thropic organization which has performed a
noble mission in aiding falling women by
giving them a home when in sickness and
trouble, and by finding honorable employ
ment for them when health lias been re
covered, have outgrown their old quarters.
The institution has been founded on the
bequests of generous citizens and is par
tially maintained by the city—one-third of
the fines paid into the municipal court by
the houses of ill-fame being devoted to the
work of the sisterhood. Yesterday Henry
F. Brown, as agent for the sisterhood; pro
cured from specter Pardee a permit to
erect a four-story brick building for a new ;
home on South Bryant avenue, between
West Thirty-seventh and West Thirty- ]
eighth streets, to cost 527.000. Work on I
the building will be vigorously pushed and i
the corner stone is expected to be laid some
time this month.
Fall Term of Couri--Commissioners
on the Text !took Question.
The fall term of the district court will be
gin to-day, and for some time to come the
numerous officials whose duty it is to
handle the county litigation will find their
hands full. Judge Lochren will call the !
general term calendar at 10 o'clock this
morning. There are over 1.000 cases on
the calendar, including: many very import
ant ones, and over 500 tax cases. The
grand jury will be called at 10 o'clock, but
will scarcely be charged before -2. Judge
Lochren will perform that duty, but his
charge, owing to a press of business, will be
a short one.

At the regular monthly meeting of the
county commissioners yesterday, postponed
until the afternoon, every commissioner
■was in his sent. The following matters
■were referred to appropriate committees:
Petition of S. Green and others for a high
way in section 1, township 117, range 23;
four remonstrances against granting the
petition for a highway in the towns
of * hamplin and Dayton; a com
munication from the supervisors of
Champlin, asking an appropriation
of Sl4O, half of the cost of building a
bridge over Elm creek, afterward allowed.
An appropriation of SSO was allowed the
Fish lake and Minneapolis road, in Maple
Grove, ami one for S-350 for the Crystal
Lake road and $100 for the middle road in
the town of Crystal Lake. The bills re
turned, by the county attorney and the re
bates allowed by the committee on taxes
were allowed. Samuel Marks and Chester
E. Evans were appointed viewers for a
ditch to be made in the town of Corcoran.
The following resolution was unani
mously adopted:
Whereas, Mr. D. D. Merrill, state text-book
contra su-called, through bis agent in
Minneapolis, has scon fit to threaten the
county officers of Hennei»in county, asserting
he intends to institute legal proceedings
against them unless they take measures to in
troduce the state text-books in the several
districts of Hennepin county:
Be it resolved by the board of county com
missioners. That the arse o€ the county
auditor, treasurer and superintendent of
schools of this county, in reference to the
ptare test books, be and is hereby approved,
and that we will, as a board of county com
missioners, support them in the stand they
The action is thus explained: The Merrill
system, being unpopular in some instances,
the officials have not forced it upon the
schools. The board sustains the officials,
and it now remains for Mr. Merrill to en
force the statute if he can.

ders at the Tables.
The Catholic orphans' fair received a tre
mendous boom last night for the opening.
Ilannonia hall was crowded to almost suf
focation, and the attendance was all that
could be desired. The evening opened
with a dramatic performance, the play be
ing "A Limerick Boy," in which Inspector
Jim Smith took the leading role of Paddy
Miles. When this pleasing introduction
ended the fair went smoothly, gaily and nois
ily on. The hall was surrounded with booths,
bazaars and confectionaries, fishponds,
Rebecca's well and grab bags, with all the
chances, prizes ami contests incident to
such pleasant affairs. Refreshment tables
and a large dining hall contributed liberally
to the inner man. On the booth tables were
all those varieties and truck knacks so dear
to the heart of femininity, many of them
works of art and of considerable value.
The several valuable articles to be contested
or were conspicuously displayed and elo
quently paraded. The tables were effi
ciently handled by the following ladies:

That is "What Sir. Brown Sars the
minstrel Posters Are.'
It was not mony months ago that the
curiosity of our people was aroused over a
novel suit brought in the municipal court
against M. Breslaurer, city bill poster, and \
the manager of the Rente Santley female
minstrels. The action, it will be" remem
bered, was brought under the new statute
forbidding he posting of lewd, las
civious and obscene pictures, etc. The
case was tried before a jury, and resulted in
an acquital.
Xow we have a paralel case. Dr. E. J.
Brown, in the interest of the Minneapolis
society for the suppression of vice, yester
day occasioned the arrest of W. J. Potter,
agent for the female minstrel show now ex -
hibiting in Market hall. Potter was ar
raigned and his case set for trial on the 11th,
the defendant filing bonds for his appear
The question is whether a lithographic
display of shapely femiue anotomy in tights
is to be legally considered a vice or lewd,
lascivious and obscene.
A prominent dry goods merchant, and he
was a staunch supporter of George A. Pills
bury's candidacy in the spring of '84, was
met by a Globe emissary in front of his
place of business yesterday afternoon, lie
was in an apparent genial mood, and
chatted freely about the prospects of the
fair and other matters, and he finally i
touched upon municipal politics. He said
with an air that must convince the listener j
that he meant every word he said:
"1 hope Dill King will accept the Repub
lican nomination for mayor in the spring. I !
have almost unbounded confidence in the '
colonel's ability to satisfy the people and to [
conduct a prosperous administration, He :
is a broad-guage man, and that is what j
Minneapolis wants for mayor. This city
cannot afford to be run on narrow prin
ciples any longer. I opposed Dr. Ames
because I thought a conservative adminis
tration would have good results, but, al
though too late, I have learned my mistake.
While Dr. Ames was mayor the city in
creased in population with phenominal
rapidity, Minneapolis became famous
throughout the land, but it is almost at a
standstill, comparatively speaking, now."
* *
Unlike that of most metropolitan cities
the police department still religiously ad- j
heres to its narrow policy, conceived during
its primitive days when this was only a pro- |
vincial town. Strange as it "may seem, it
is none the less true that the long
exploded theory that as soon as
a crime that has been committed
finds publication in the papers, the chances
of apprehending the criminal become greatly
lessened or absolutely lost. Consequently,
every possible effort is exercised to keep
the reporters from learning anything con
cerning a burglary, robbery or anything of
that character. In this enlightened age it
is pretty generally conceded, especially in
Eastern and more advanced cities, that the
press is an almost invaluable aid to detec
tives in hunting down criminals. It is a
perverted idea that because the news
papers do not publish the fact
that "John Jones was robbed of $500 by a
thug," that the thug should believe that the
police had not been informed of the robbery,
and were searching for him. Every crook
in the land knows that the very first thing a
victim does is to report at the police head
quarters. John Jones knows that he was
robbed by a thug, and the thug knows that
he was guilty of the act, and he furthermore
knows, whether the same be published or
not, that John Jones has promptly reported
the matter to the chief of police or to the
Herman Westphal, the veteran ice dealer,
is exercised over the proposed purchase of
a site for a city hospital on the banks of
Keegan's lake, on the extension of Sixth
avenue north. Keegans lake is one of the
veriest beautiful suburban spots in the city,
and lies just inside the city limits to the
west. The tract of ten acres, which the
council committee on public grounds and
buildings proposes to acquire for quaran
tine hospital purposes, is directly to the
north of the lake and on the very border of
the city. It transpires that Mr. Westphal
and another gentleman have purchased the
beautiful grove, which borders the lake,
with the expectation of converting it into a
park to be named Spring park. Should
the quarantine hospital be located as the
committee on public grounds and buildings
contemplate.it must unavoidably destroy
Spring park as a desirable summer resort,
and consequently work almost irreparable
injury to the owners.
Since the city has perfected a lease for
four additional mill powers from the Min
neapolis Mill company, the same being
the result of a comprehensive and sci
entific investigation and measurement of
water used by the city water works, con
ducted by D. W. Waters,- there is a likeli
hood of further measurements to be prose
cut-ed in the interests of the manufactures
and others leasing water power from the
mill company at the platform. The lessees,
it is rumored, express unfeigned surprise
that the river measurement conducted by
Mr. Waters showed such a small actual
consumption of water, and basing their cal
culations upon the amount of water used
by the city they deduce that they are paying
for more water than they really use.
Whether or not any distinctive action be
taken it is certain that considerable dissat
isfaction has arisen.
The work in fitting up the large four
story block recently occupied by the late
wholesale dry goods firm of Wyman, Mullen
& VanDyke is progressing rapidly. The
whole building will open in a short time as
a dime museum,under the most experienced
management and best auspices.

that Whistler, the athlete, intends to visit
Minneapolis next week. In that event

Thompson, catch-as-catch-can style. It has
been suggested that Patsy Cardiff and Billy
Wilson give a sparring exhibition at the

The owners of pacers in this city feel
keenly disappointed because the Fair asso
ciation did not arrange for a 2:25 class.
There are several pacers here in that class,
notably J. E. Whitcomb's gray mare Ther

Yesterday's Criminal Grind.
When Sergt. Burns called the municipal
court to order yesterday morning there was I
a motley array of prisoners who had taken
seats in the pen. The thirteen first ar
raigned were for imbibing- Sunday whisky.
Then came Ole DahlandO. Peterson. They
were charged with disorderly conduct. They
had been on a jamboree which reached its
height at midnight Saturday. Officer Col
lins attempted to arrest them, and they re
sisted so vigorously that the aid of citizens
was called, and in the tussle the officer shot
Dahl through the right thigh, inflicting an
ugly wound. Dahl and Peterson each paid
a fine of 517.50, and their associates, John
Gilartson and John Peterson paid $7.50
Carl Berg was arrested in a house of ill
fame by Officer Woolsey, because he kicked
up a rumpus over the price of a bottle of j
beer. He paid for the beer, however, and
went to jail for thirty days besides.
John land was charged with stealing a
horse and buggy belonging to O. H. Mah
ler. His examination was set for Sept. 15.
Robert Suiter, a hack driver, was found
by Officer Faurskow soliciting business con
trary to the ordinance, and he made a de- !
posit of 3100 for his appearance for a trial
Sept. 11.
W. J. Patten, agent for the Mastodon
minstrels, was arraigned for posting "ob
scene bills."' Continued for trial until
Sept. 11.
H. B. Tazer is charged with allowing
his cattle at large, and he too will be given
trial on the 11th.
Trajredy and Melody.
Every seat in the Grand was filled last
evening, making up an intelligent and fash

enthusiastic greeting to Lawrence Barrett. I
The bill was "Francesea da Reminyi," in I

Ifiethodist Conference.
The Minneapolis district conference of
the Methodist church began its session last
night at the Thirteenth Avenue M. E.

The Masrill ?lsirder Case.
Special to the Globe.
Bismabck, Dak., Sept. 7. — The Magill
murder case was resumed to-day, quite a
number of ladies being among the listeners.
The defense so far has only put two wit
nesses upon the stand, but expect to be
through by Thursday at the latest. Col.
Magill took the stand this afternoon, and
in Riving his evidence had occasion to refer
to his wife, the defendant's mother, who is I
now lying ill at her home from excitement,
which brought . the tears to his eyes. The
colonel will conclude to-morrow. Tom
Magill has many friends, and Attorney
Greene of Fargo is laboring hard in his be
half. The feeling against him has very ma
terially died away.
Big Corn Crop.
Chicago, Sept. 7. —The Farmers' Re
view will pririt the following summary to
morrow on the corn crop outlook, based on
its latest reports from its correspondents:
"The cold, damp weather which has pre
vailed during the past week has retarded
the maturing of the corn crop, in spite
of it, however, some progress has been
made. Frosts have been experienced in
mang localities, but none of sufficient se
verity to do any injury to the corn. At
this writing, Sept. 7, we "judge that «hree
fourths of the corn of the entire country
is past dancer from frost. Of the remain
ing fourth fully half is so far advanced
that a frost which simply cuts the leaves
without freezing the stalk so as to burst
it, would do it no injury beyond the injury
to the fodder. This leaves but an eighth.
of the crop in any real danger, and every
day without a freeze lessens the danger.
At this writing the danger of a freeze is
no greater than it has been at any time
in the last ten days, and we have strong
confidence of the full maturity of the
largest crop of corn ever grown in this

of excellent attractions is announced. See

Bismarck, Dak., Sep?^. —The South
Dakota counties holding elections for dele
gates to the Sioux Falls convention, under
