Thompson, mentioned above, is the secretary of the American l'ercheroii Horse Breeders' association of Wayne, Dv Page county," 111. He comes here on busi ness of considerable importance and inter est to the tanners of the stato of Minne sota. In a general way the association he represents is desirous of obtaining a recog nition at stale agricultural societies of the l'ereheron horse. Heretofore the Pereheron has been placed i it a classification that in cluded Normans and other heavy draft horses. His desire is to have a classllica tion for the Percberou separate and distinct from all other draft burses. The association be represents intends to oiler premiums amounting to $5,000 for Pereheron horses, the cxhibibition to be made under the auspices of some agricultural society, either In Minnesota, Wisconsin or at St. i Louis, where the best terms can be made. j In addition to the premiums of his society, : the same organization proposes to offer a J gold medal for the best lVrclieron stallion. ) If arrangements are completed for the dis- i play hero next Tall it will be made on a j scale of magnitude that will surprise peo ple. Probably not less than three or lour hundred animals will be exhibited. These animals weigh from 1,500 to 2.000 pounds each. It will be one of the grandest dis plays ever made at a state lair. Mr. Thompson addressed the meeting yesterday afternoon and explained the whole matter to [ tho gentlemen present and pledged the sup port of the National association, lie said that If his proposition to establish a sepa rate class for Percherons should be adopted, that be desired to secure 400 stalls. He further stated that William U. Dunham alono would show 100 horses, with the famous stallion Brilliant at the head. WHAT IS WANTED. S. M. Emery, president of the Holstein Breeders' association of Minnesota, spoke in behalf of the Holstein cattle. He urged that a premium bo offered lor a dairy herd, and stated that if he could get the stalls the Uolsteins would want 500. Messrs. Bullis and Cosgrove In behalf of the Hereford breeders wanted one of the large barns, and stated that the Hereford breeders would make one of the best dis plays of that breed ever shown in the West A. P. McKinstry and E. G. Potter, in be half of the dairy interests, desire an in crease of premiums, so that they might oiler greater and belter premiums for the individual farmer. Mr. John Miller of the Farmers' alliance was also present to apeak in behalf of a premium for better farming. E. C. Lngals wanted larger premiums for cereals, and in fact all Interests were fully reoresented from all parts of the state. In the evening the board settled down to the business of revising the premium list, so as to bring out tlio largest and best display ever exposed. THE GUN CLUB. A committee of the St Paul Gun club appeared about 9 o'clock in the evening. This committee consisted of T. P. Myers chairman, Judge Coiy, M. J. Cum- [ mlngs, J. G. Hinkle, M. P. Kcnnedey and Mr. Harrison of Minneapolis. They asked tho association to give the club per manent shooting grounds on the fairground. Judge Cory explained that the club was de sirous of erecting a handsome and orna mental building for the use of the club. All the propositions and requests made were taken under advisement The gun club, however, was Informed that some kind of provision should be made for its accommodation. It was determined to hold the fair from Aug. 30 to Sept. 4 inclusive. The meeting will be continued to-day. _ m^^_____ A LAW AND ORDER LEAGUE. Andrew Paxlou of Chicago to VUit St. Paul—Outline of the League. The committee on permanent organiza tion of a Law and Order league held a meeting at the chamber of commerce yes terday afternoon. Five of seven of the committee were present, as follows: Bis hop Ireland, chairman. Rev. Clay Macauley, Dr. Dana, Commodore Davidson and 11. H. Hart, secretary of the state board of cor rections and charities. The meeting was very Informal and was devoted to a genera! exchange of views concerning the plan to be pursued to accomplish the organization of a Law and Order league and its success ful management There was a general agreement that public interest should be excited over the matter before any linal steps toward permanent organization were taken, and that further knowledge was required concerning the management of law and order leagues in Boston and hi cago, where they have been very successful. Tho committee determined that the chair man, Bishop Ireland, secure the services of Andrew Paxton, secretary and agent of the Chicago league, and whoever else he might select for a public lecture on the purposes of the league and its method of organiza tion, also that the secretary, Mr. llaeanley, correspond with the secretaries of the leagues in Boston and Chicago and obtain copies of their constitutions and by-laws. as well as whatever literature might be useful toward the object to be accomplished. Mr. Paxton makes a practice of 'going to differ ent cities wherever he may be wanted to or ganize leagues. On his visit here, some large hall, not yet selected, Will be obtained for a public meeting, and the people at large will bo informed of the objects of a league organization. This will probably not occur for about three weeks. The com mittee adjourned subject to the call of the chairman. THE LEAGUE'S WORK. The Citizens Law and Order league of the United States is, as the name Implies, a national organization, having as branches' a number of leagues established in the large cities of the country. These have been more successful in Boston and Chicago than else where. The object of the league is the en forcement of existing laws, particularly on the liquor question. It studiously avoids any action looking to new legislation, as this would tend to take the organization into politics. To enforce laws prohibiting the selling of liquor to minors, on Sunday or in improper places Is the special aim of the league. The argument is that viola tions of law beget a destruction of a law-abiding sentiment among the people and it is this - sentiment that the league would foster. The constitution of the national organization says it is its ob ject "to secure in all proper ways the en- i forcemeat of existing laws relating to the ' liquor traffic, and all offences against morals and the peace and good order of society and j to encourage and assist the authorities in ! maintaining and enforcing the same." The method adopted is to have a paid agent whose business it is to look up violations of ! the laws and prosecute the same. He col lects evidence and acts as a sort of detect- j ive. A particular point made by the Chi- ! cago league is to prevent the attendance of children at improper places. such as saloons, beer gardens, etc.. and in this the better class of saloon keepers render assistance. The national organization has an official oi_an in the journal Law and Order, pub lished weekly at Boston and edited by L. Edwin Dudley. In the published list of contributors occurs the name of Bishop Ireland of this city, cut ritOTi i: Alt to ear. The Throat of an In known ?Inti Until* (Unshed L.aal Kigkl. Tho Minnesota Transfer stock yards came to the front last night with a bloodyaffair that may prove to bo a foul murder. Yesterday morning an ordinary looking man, with dark hair, red mustache and light blue eyes arrived at the yards and made arrange ments for the reception of a carload of horses which ho expected to arrive last night. Ho wore a dark-blue calico shirt and a dark suit of clothes, over which he bad an overcoat. Around his neck was tied a dark silk handkerchief. He did not give his name at the \ mils, and no one took any more interest in him than they would have taken in any one of the various stock men who daily arrive at the yards. He was known to have had considerable money in his possession which he displayed at the hotel where he paid his bill In ad vance, but as is the custom, did not register. About 7 o'clock last evening he went Into the yards to see if his pen had been supplied with feed for the horses, and that was the last seen of him until a little after 10 o'clock, when Woods, an engineer at the j yards, In passing: the pen, heard some one ! groaning, and going m the direction of the sounds, found the man lying in a pool of blood unable to speak. Woods summoned assistance and the man was taken toMcrrlam Park on a switch engine. A physician was sum moned and after examining the man's wounds said he could do nothing for him, and suggested that he be taken to the hos pital. He was brought in on the 11:30 short line and taken from the union dei>ot to the city hospital in the patrol wagon. Accompanying him was William Ryan, employed at " the yards as manager, Mr. Ryan said that he had been around with the man during the day but had not asked his name, and no one at the yards knew It He saw him at (5 o'clock and he was perfectly sober. At the hospital, Dr. liurk dressed* tho man's wounds. ins THROAT was CUT from ear to ear, severing the windpipe, but luckily leaving the jugulars intact On the I top of the head was a deep incision as though the man had been struck by a sharp pointed instrument and the skull was fractured. 11 is clothes were saturated with blood and he had evidently laid in the yard three hours or more. When laid on a cot in ward A at the hospital the man was unable to speak Intelligibly, but when asked his name he muttered so thing that sounded like Henry Sawyer. There were no papers on his person by which his Identity could be fixed and his poeksthook was empty. In his pocket were two watch keys, but his watch had been taken. The overcoat that he had worn was also missing. Who committed the deed Is a mystery, but it was undoubtedly done by some desperate, character who did It for the purpose of robbery. .Mr. Ryan stated to the police that there was a young fellow at the yards who had come there yesterday morn ng and who had started to come to St Paul with him last nlirht about 7 o'c'ock, but changed his mind and returned to the hotel. Suspicion seemed to rest on this fellow, and about 1 o'clock this morn- Ing Detective John O'Connor went out to the yards for the purpose of arresting the man. The chances are strongly against tho man living. niRCIICII POST G. A. It. Tho Name of ttie ."New Organization — Officer* Elected.

BETWEEN TWO TRAINS. Transients Caught at the St. Paul Motel*— Their liemnrlt*. Lieut Got. Charles A. Oilman of St Cloud was a guest at the Merchants yester day. He came over on business, he said, and Intimated that electioneering for the Republican nomination for governor was foreign to his thoughts. He is a very clever politician and he never talks to his own dis advantage. lie has a groat partiality for a white slouch hat lie also likes the hat better alter it has seen service. The ear lier the campaign the older the hat he wears. He had on an old white hat yesterday. He said that he could not announce himsoif at the present time as a candidate for gover nor, although nearly everybody in the state knows that he would not consider It an in sult if the nomination was tendered him. His candidacy, he said, depended largely On his business engagements, and was Bet In the least dependent on the views or ac lions of his political . friends. In fact he was not in any sense in the hands of his 1 friends, He admitted that he would like , the position of governor of Minnesota and ; would appreciate the honor of a nomination for that place at the hands of the Repub licans. Be said that he had quite a large farm, with 100 head of cattle, and this, With his saw mill and lumber interests, generally occupied his undivided attention and he was not sure that he could afford to neglect his private boatnea and enter the canvass. He said that his business would be in shape- in about a month for him to arrive at a conclusion. If ho decides to make the race, he said that there would be no secret about the fact, but on the con- I trary he would prefer to have it known throughout the state. He desired the same publicity provided be decided to remain a farmer and not go in for tho nomination *»• State Senator O. M. Hall of Red Wing was in the city, and while here took occasion to say that the political excitemen had not reached Red Wing. He had heard it rumored that EL B. Strait, the present Re publican congressman from the Third dis trict, would be nominated by the Republi cans, although Gov. Hobbard of Red Wing and Representative Pattee of NorthieU were talked of ns contestants for the nomi nation. Mr. Hall was of the opinion that the Democrats bad more than a lighting chance hi that district provided an accept able man was nominated. He was strongly In favor of making tue congressional Bcht next fall on a tariff issue, and believed that if the Democrats made a light on the tariff for-revenue-ouly issue, the result could not bo but Katlsfar.tnrv m all concerned. He ' TTIE ST. PAUL DATLT liLOBK. SATURDAY MOILING. MAROTT 13, 1886.— TWELVE PAGES. said that ho was In favor of a Democratic candidate on a Democratic platform. *»* Capt A. 11. lleod, Glencoe, with his \ armless sleeve hanging by his side, was a pcrmlncnt visitor at the hotel. lie Is Inter- ' ested at the present time In the construc tion of tho llutcbinson, Glencoo & South* cm railroad, and is quite positive that tho proposed road will be ready for use late tho coming fall.

J. Smallev, Caledonia, was about the lobby of the Merchants. He is editor of the Caledonia Argus and comes to his chosen profession right honestly, as he Is a cousin of Smalley. editor of the Northwest, and also of the able correspondent ot the Now York Tribune. Mr. .Smallcy has his own ideas of the tariff and civil service, and is not afraid to express them. He main tains that the strikes and laboring men's unions generally are the direct results of the protective tariff, and to do away with the lockouts and boycotts the government must do away with the present high tariff. V MaJ. A. P. MoKinstrv. Wlnnebago City, in discussing the dairy business. ln which he is euiraired. said that there was not the money in that industry at the present time that was hoped for. The dairy farms throughout Minnesota, he said, were in creasing in number, notwithstanding the low prices and small profit*. His visit to St. Paul was to bring the subject to the at tention of the members of the State Agri cultural society to the fact that premiums should be offered for dairy products at the state fair. STRUCT HAYINGS. The advisability of giving Gen. Terry a reception before he leaves this department has ban considerably talked of, but is not meeting with unanimous favor. One old prominent veteran said yesterday that he didn't think the people should make any especial splurge over Gen. Terry's leaving, as he never during Ml residence at Fort Snelllng, invited a St. Paul G. A. It. man to his house. It any of the high-ranked officers visited this part of the country, the general would invite them out to the fort and entertain them,-* but St. Paul men were never counted In. He said the general had been influential in the moving of the head quarters from the city to the tort. and it was hard to ascertain what benefit ho had been to St. PauL *** The new West side G. A. K. post was named in honor of Aldrlch Birchcr, who served four years in the army as a high private. He was formerly a resident of this cltv, and a few years ago moved to Rush City, where he died about a year ago. V It is reported that M. J. Bel! is anxious to go to the council from the Sixth ward. There are others after the same plum, and A. W. Martinson wouldn't protest very loudly if it should happen to fall into his hands. Aid. Bryant has died his term with satisfaction to the people, and he will probably make an effort to retain his posi tion against all comers. *•• "Dick"' O'Connor smiles satisfactorily when it is hinted to him that he will make an effort to get the iil.ilty next falL "1 don't believe I'd take it if it was given to me," ho said yesterday. He doesn't say a word regarding his Intentions in the coming campaign, but says if the Republicans ex pect to wire in his district they had better begta to move as they were due a long time ago. V The annual report of the health depart ment was issued yesterday. It is a very creditable piece of work, and reflects great credit on Health Ofllcer Jones and his chief clerk, W. C. Bryant. It contains a table showing the death-rate of all the prlnc Ipal cities in the United States, and that of St. Paul is the lowest The report Is accom panied by a carefully prepared map, that shows the various lines of sewers and the districts In which scarlet fever and diphthe ria have prevailed during the past season. *»* It is Interesting to note just at this par ticular season of the year that the red light cold wave signal, that decorates the top of the chamber of commerce whenever Gen. Hazen gives out a blizzard bulletin from Washington, was designed originally to be an accommodation to those who were in terested In the weather about the time the late ice palace was being built Observer Lyons told Gen. Hazen that the people here would appreciate it if he could make some arrangement so that carnival enthus iasts could see when a cold wave was pre dicted after dark. I. en. Hazen said he would have this matter attended to, and ordered the lantern. But there was more red tape than red light found to cut a figure, and so it has just got here. It's a pood lantern, however, and is warranted to last until next season, when it will be Hung to the breezes— a beacon of hope to the holders of ice palaco stock, and as welcome to the owners of tobosgan suits as the flowers that get ripe In May, tra la. v Secretary Judson of the state board of agriculture is in receipt of a letter from Congressman Strait on the butterine ques tion. The congressman says he believes that the dairy Interests of the state should have better projection, and he assures Mr. Judson that he will take a lively Interest In the bills already before the house, looking to this end. lie says: "If an act cannot bo passed, prohibiting the manufacture and sale of these goods, it seems to me that it would be well to put a tax upon them suf ficiently high to drive them out of the market Property Owners Object. The council committee on streets held a meeting last night at which a large number of West side citizens who are Interested in the proposed grading of Eaton avenue, were present and registered a very well developed kick against the pro posed Improvement In grading the street several property owners will be left up in the air at such a height that it will be very Inconvenient for them to get down to the street, and this is the element that protests. Another proposition Is to \ build a twenty-four-foot bridge over Eaton avenue, from Isabel street to the corner of George and Eaton. This meets the hearty disapproval of the residents on George street, as it will render considerable of the j property valueless, and will also necessitate ' I change of grade on George street and all t side streets in what is called George street plateau. After listening to the discussion, the committee referred the matter to the city engineer to report a grade, DisruMln* Convict Labor. The St. Paul Trades assembly considered the convict labor question at considerable length last evening. Committees appointed by the Minneapolis Trades assembly and the labor lyceum were present Rep resentatives of the wood manufacturing In terests of the city were expected, but failed to appear. It was resolved that each com mittee industriously gather all the informa tion obtainable pertaining to the question and at a future conference decide on active measures. (.1 OIK I IS.
