SCENES OF THE CAMPAIGN.
The Line* ITpon Which Hie Munici
pal Rattle Will Wittfe.
There seems to be but one explanation of
the long, loud and continuous wail eolng
up from the Republicans oh the license and ,
patrol limits questions. They have made
war slogans of these two questions and are
howling them out at every juncture as!
though they were now pending before the
people for action. Therecan be but one
explanation, and that is that in the near fu
ture the Republicans expect to lose control
of the council. License and limits can be
dealt with by council alone, and why should '
this howl go but unless some chance in the
constitution of the council is apparent? It \
is evident the Democrats cannot control the
body after the next election, for should they
elect in every waul they will only number
twelve in the new council. Do lie Repub
licans, then, fear a change of heart on the
part of some of their own members in coun
cil that the change may bo wrought with
out a Democratic majority?
The next mayor, whoever he may be, can
exert only a moral Influence on these ques
tions through council, as he can neither
make, amend nor alter them. Yet. in
spite of i his, the Republican press insists
on forcing them to the Etout as though they
were the issues of the campaign, It is
merely a part of the insincerity which lias
ever characterized them. It is a species of ;
scare they are endeavoring to Inflict upon
the straight-backed portion of. the com
munity.
There is only one issue in the mayoralty
campaign, that of progressive, liberal ad- j
ministration, Shall the city stagnate be-
Death the eighteenth century blue-law j
ntOHSbackisin of cant and hypocrisy, or shall
it push forward under advanced, broad,
liberal and nineteenth century ideas? On
these the people will vote, on these the
Democracy will triumph.

Arrangement* for v Seventh Wurd
Working men'), (nuiut.
An enthusiastic meeting was held last
evening In the Seventh ward by the work
ingmen of that- section, its object was to
appoint a time and place for a caucus to i
nominate an alderman for the ward who '
would represent the worlcingmen in the city
Council, .lames Wheelock was elected
chairman and mad.- a few remarks relative
to the interests of the workiuguien. Mr.
Libbens was elected secretary. The first
speaker called was Mr. Cozner, who dwelt
briefly on the oppression of the workingmen
and stated that DOW was their opportunity to
deliver themselves from bondage by sup
porting and electing for alderman their own
candidate. The other speakers of the
evening were Messrs. Proctor, Clancey,
Gage, Wright, Turner, Allen and Newell,
who were strongly in favor of placing a
workininnan's ticket in the field, nomi
nating a man for alderman whose sympa
thies were with the workingmen and who
opposed contract work, convict labor and
was in favor of the eight-hour law. The ;
speakers were somewhat barraased and j
hampered by a small mob whose cry of
"rats!" materially disturbed the equilibrium
of the orators, but with the aid of the chair
man, they expressed their sentiments and !
delivered their speeches. The motion made i
to appoint the caucus for next week. Fri- j
day, at the corner of Seventeenth avenue
and Twenty-seventh street, was amended
to make the date next Saturday evening.
us the Republican and Democratic caucuses
are to be held at that time, and in this
event, it would keep the wire pullers from
packing the workingmen's convention.
After considerable debate the amendment
was carried and the meet ing adjourned.
In Iliiiley a Political Tlentnr?
A. M. Bailey was early initiated Into the
deepest mysteries of politics. It has been
said that even before he reached his ma
jority be made do bones of boasting of the
number of Republican ballots he carried in
his vest pocket. Parenthetically it should
be remarked, however, In justice to that
party that on pretty good authority the
truthfulness of the same lias been denied.
Yet he is a factor in the young men's ranks,
lie now poses as the champion of the move
ment to force Mayor Pillsbury into con
senting to allow his name to go before the
nominating convention, and Mr. Bailey has
even gone so far as to delegate himself
as envoy extraordinary from his faction to
wait upon the mayor. Indeed, he suc
ceeded in securing an interview with his
honor which lasted all the afternoon. But.
Judging from his downcast countenance as
he took his leave, he accomplished no more
than Mr. Blakely did in his colossal effort
to the same purport a few weeks before.
Yet the persistency of the young enthusiast
may possibly be construed to his credit, for.
after Mayor Pillsbury had repeatedly told
him that he should not accept a nomination,
the following paragraph appears in the
Journal:
•'I never mix up In political flcrhts," said
A. M. Bailey, with a peculiar wink of the
loft optic, "but let me tell you Mayor Pills
bury will be the unanimous choice of tho
convention, and such being tho case 1 think
ho will accept."
lflow Boom meetings Are Held.
Said a Seventh ward Democrat yesterday:
"To my positive knowledge the report that
A. J. Noerenberg had withdrawn from the
aldermante canvass is a fabrication. Aid. >
Noerenberg has promised his friends to run
again, and a majority of his constituents
are in favor of returning him. It is very
like that case reported about a largely
attended meeting held to boom Bob Clancey
for the nomination. 1 know that there
were only eight men at that meet ing,
whereas it was reported there were over
eighty. But there is no danger that Clancey
Will get the nomination."
Political Points.
And now the little Ethiopian's head
Cometh out from under the wood pile. It
was known several days since that Aid.
Lawrence had been Inquiring as to the
rental of the skating rink on Nicollet ave
nue, near the Hastings & Dakota crossing.
The statement is being circulated in the
Eighth ward that other reports to the con
trary, but one Republican caucus will be
held, and that at the rink. Lawrence's ad
herents, however, are beimr quietly in
formed that precinct caucuses will bo held,
neither of them at the rink. Why are
these things thus?
"The world do move." Erstwhile there
were few Democrats in the Eighth ward,
but latterly it has become a veritable
Mecca. Last summer Ed A. Stevens lo
cated, there. Soon afterwards Doc Ames
then took up his abode. Orville Kinehart, '
the young Demosthenes, will move in next |
week, and it is understood that Col. Glenn
was yesterday looking up a site for a new
residence. Now if Dick Kunnington, Matt
Walsh and Herman Westpal will move in
the ward may become "reliably Demo
cratic."
A special meeting of the Democratic city |
city committee will be held this (Saturday)
evening at Windom hall. Every member |
is expected to be present for the transaction '•
of es pf : nl business.
Considering the fact that they cannot find ;
a candidate themselves, the Republican !
papers are taking a great deal of interest
and showing no little gall in finding one for
the Democrats.
Maj. Heffelfinger is the latest to decline
the Republican nomination for mayor. No- j
body cares to become the sacrificial lamb.

THE RICH OBSTRUCTIONISTS
Call a Meeting: «'• Protest Attaint!
the Motor Line.
The handful of rich property-owners who
have put themselves upon record in opposi- |
tion to the motor line have called a meet- j
Ing for this evening at Harrison hall to pro- '
test against their bete noir. A paper has
been circulated very industriously cltiug
that "The. undersigned invite all citizens
who object to the occupation of central i
business and residence streets by the Mm- '
neapolis Lvndale & Minnetouka Railway
company to meet in Harrison hall Saturday
evening, to protest against the further con
tinuance of the steam motor." The leading
signers are K. S. Corser. S. C. Gale, George
A. Brackett, E. J. Pnetps, I. C. Seeley,
A. B. Nettleton and T. A. Harrison.
Of course, the meeting will come off, but
it will have little public moment. The mo
tor company is about to make a test of the
soda motor, which It is confident will be
successful, in which event the public will
be satistied. The leaders In this Harrison
ball movement are against the line itself
and would equally oppose steam, soda, elec
tricity, cable or burses. The wealthy Re
publican land owners are all rich and can
afford their line teams and liveried coach
men, so it matters not to them how long or
how far the Eighth ward people may have
to walk. They are opposed to rapid transit
along the present line of track, no matter
in what Shape it may come. Very little
public sympathy will be their portion.
Til CHOIVLCY CASE.
The Supervisors of the Poor Have a
[ i % «-l > II on-> Reports.
At the stated meeting of the supervisors
of the poor yesterday ■ communication was
received from the city clerk calling atten
tion to the action of the city council, rela
tive to calling for a report from tho super
visors upon the Crowley matter, which has
been pretty extensively discussed the past
week.
Commissioner Noerenberg moved that tho
request be granted, and thai the majority
and minority reports be submitted to the
council.
Commissioner Pratt made inquiry rela
tive to the proper procedure in such a case.
He wanted to ascertain the legal phrase of
the affair. The mayor replied that he had
not consulted the city attorney regarding
the same. The reports had been published
in the papers, and the mayor, upon the sup
position that the supervisors composed an
independent body, thought it was not nec
essary to make ■ formal report to the coun
cil. He did not believe the board was de
serving of the censure imposed by Aid.
Johnson, at the meeting of the council
when the mot. on. calling for a report, was
adopted. The mayor thought the board
had acted in good faith.
Commissioner Clough — I don't think Mr.
Johnson meant to censure the board. He
wanted to say something and did not know
just what to say. and made a remark about
the neglect of the supervisors which, in
reality, be did not mean.
Commissioner Habit stated thai the mem
bers of the council who belong to the board
have no chairman, and consequently it has
no one to make a report.
Mayor Pillsbury— l never heard of the
board of supervisors making a report to the
council, but as a matter of courtesy we
might make a report. But I think there is
a conflict of authority. The motion directs
us, whereas it should have requested us to
report.
Commissioner Pratt — I think we acted
right before. The reports were both pub
lished and that was in my opinion suffi
cient.
Mayor Pillsbury— While 1 have BO desire
to got into a controversy with the council l
must take issue with the action of that
body.
Commissioner Dowries said he disliked
the tone of the council's motion. He said
i! MM not a question of getting informa
tion, and therefore he thought the supervis
ors were not holden to consider it.
Aid. Nocreuberg explained that the
ground upon which the motion was made
by Aid. Walsh was that ■ petition had been
presented to the council demanding an in
vestigation in the Crowley- Williams matter,'
and the council had referred it to the super
visors, and that body had failed to make a
report to the council.
The charter creating the board was read
for Information.
Mr. Clough thought, whether the board
is bolden to the council or sot; the best
way out of the complication is to make a
report.
The mayor stated that it might be more
proper to simply explain to the council why
a report bad not been submitted, but Aid.
Noerenbenc insisted upon his motion as at
first stated.
Cant Babb thought by adopting the
motion the board would be establishing a
precedent The board has never reported,
and if it vow reports it will be an inno
vation.
Aid. Noerenberg took issue with that
position. He stated it was simply granting
the council a request, and also giving that
body the desired information.
After ■ more lengthy discussion, Mr.
Pratt moved an amendment that the
minutes of the meeting be furnished the
council.
Mr. Babb then moved as a substitute for
the whole that the secretary forward the
desired information, with the statement
that the supervisors had construed the coun
cil's motion as asking lor information.
MATRIMONIAL, AMENITIES.
A nan Obtain* a Lit-cnwe to Marry
a Former Wife.
Henry Ambrose yesterday applied to the
clerk of the distrtict court for a license to
marry Eliza Ambrose. Objection was in
terposed by a gentleman, who stated that
the parties bad been once married and that
the woman had obtained a divorce upon the
ground of cruelty; further, that she is in
sane, and that the marriage is used as a
means by Ambrose to obtain possession of
her property. The license was granted in
spite of the protest, the clerk saying he could
not take cognizance of these statements.
The relatives of Mrs. Ambrose are very
much disconcerted at this prospect. They
say that after the divorce Ambrose went to
Nebraska, and, returning on Wednesday,
managed to induce Mrs. Ambrose to leave
her daughter, a Mrs. Costa, at whose house
in East Minneapolis she was staying. The
daughter objected, but Ambrose enlisted
the services of (apt. McCraney of the East
Side Police station, who interled in his be
half. Steps will probably be taken to have
the matter investigated by the courts.

Z. Demenles, the grocer and local French
politician, lie has for some time been in

accomplish that end with any degree of
satisfaction it is necessary to have a goodly

Tohn Lamb on Labor Organizations have
always de-ned and advocated the substitu
tion of arbitration for strike-, and that em
ployers, as a rule, have refused to arbitrate
nn tbo round that they had a right to run
their own business as they saw tit. The
difficulty in this country is that the princi
ple of personal rights is being carried too
far as against the rights of society, a few
meu defended by law arrogating to them
selves the right to Injure whole communi
ties, for the purpose of advancing their pri
vate increase.
Rev. J. L. Scudder — Now as to the Sun
day newspaper, personally, 1 would prefer
that it did not exist. It infringes on the
pulpit. It gives the people so much bright,
interesting matter that the minister who is
going to maintain his grip has got to wake
up and put some life into his sermons,
borne ministers are pretty lazy, and I be
lieve indirectly that Sunday papers dues
good even here. It undoubtedly has a
tendency to keep some people away from
church, and that is bad. But such whole
sale and indiscriminate condemnation as
was dealt out at the ministers' meeting tho
other mom ing is uncalled fur and not bene
ficial in its results. 1 did not like the way
the meetiuz was conducted. 1 was opposed
to making it a secret session. There were
some speeches made tint would not have
been made had the public, through the re
porters, been listening.

S. S. Small— When we get the system
arranged, which will be on Monday, the
motor trains will run with their old-time,

Ed A. Stevens— When the soda motor
has been pronounced a success there will
be a genet al change of front on the part of
those papers which opposed the line.
Thomas Lowrv— We have not decided on
any plan for the library yet and shall not
for some days. Judge Koon will not return

ABOUT Til 12 CITY.
Yesterday a man applied fora license to
marry a woman from whom he was once
divorced. An objection was made to the
issuing of the license by parties claiming to
have the woman's interests at heart, who
stated that she was crazy, and that her ex
husband was seeking to gain possession of
her property. All this may or may not be
true, but it would seem that an investiga
tion was warranted before the license was
issued. The clerk of court, however, bad
no alternative but to give the license, and
the parties are perhaps wedded by this
time.

I never could see what Irresistible charm
drew so many men into politics," remarked
a business man yesterday, "but I can
understand it now. The majority of them
get mentioned for some office, and sail in
to secure it. Some one betrays them, and
they spend the rest of their lives trying to
get even."

The new system inaugurated by the
streetcar company whereby the drivers are
to cet shorter time and more pay s not
altogether so satisfactory as might be sup
posed. The men will only work eleven
hours. It is claimed, and will get their day
off in three sections, eight hours, which
will not be as great a relief as a whole day
of freedom from work.

Passengers on an incoming motor train
were treated to a genuine Nosatioi yester
day afternoon. The car had been coupled
to the horses and was moving down First
avenue, when suddenly the pallor of fear
overspread every face. Two passengers on
the platform rushed wildly into the car.
slammed the door and cowered upon the
seats. Alarm was depicted on every face
and on each brow fear sat plumed. Faint
shrieks went up and stifled ejaculations
were heard along the seats. Brave passen

Real estate men are not alone in the
anxious search for that quarter in which
the real estate boom will most prominently
show its bead this season. The young
householder Is casting his eye about him for
the best spot on which to build his home on
installments, await the rise and realize
handsomely. But the boom promises to be
general, though undoubtedly tending to
wards the south. All property below
Lake street is doubling up rapidly and the
building in that section will be unexampled.
Early as it is. ground is already being
broken in every direction, while hundreds
of houses may be seen upon wh eh the
work went steadily on all winter. Every
body looks for "the best year Minneapolis
ever had."

REPORTED TO HR A ©STREET'S.
The Strikes Having: a Bad Effect on
Ilnkincss.
New York, March 12.— Special tele
grams to Bradstreet's from the more im
portant business centers report the move
ment of general merchandise rather below
than above previous totals. At St. Louis
and in the Southwest the report of business
is at a standstill, owing to the continued
interruption to tratlic over the Gould South
western railways and the Texas Pacific
line. The number of strikes throughout
the country has. increased beyond all prece
dent, and the number of employes so idle
is reported as 51.000 east of the Rocky
Mountains. In December, 18S4, the
total, covering the same territory, was
about 18.000. both the bituminous
coal and textile strikes outran the South
western railroads, taken in point of num
ber. Contrasted to the stagnation in trade
circles at St Louis. Chicago reports a
good business mi almost all staple lines,
3 per cent more than last year at a like
period in dry goods alone. But this report
is quito exceptional. At leading Eastern
cities business has been of moderate pro
portions only, though a feeling of confidence
that an improvement will be felt in the near
future is frequently mentioned. Increased
caution in making contracts is noted on the
part of textile mill-owners. At other cities
general trade is less active than had been
expected at this time, while at the North
west particularly more favorable reports are
made of the movement and outlook.
