MINNEAPOLIS NEWS
AT CONFESSIONAL..
There can be no question that the grand
old Republican party of Minneapolis was :
never before in such an awkward plight.
Think of it! Through its chosen repre
sentatives, day alter day. Dotting down on
its knees before Gicohge A. Pillsbtky
and begging him to stand as its candidate!
Think of his stubborn refusals— refusals at
which manhood would have retired subdued
as well as snubbed, and still continuum.
not only In its convention, but after an ad
journment, beseech iu r ly to beg him to take
the lead. It is no wonder the honest rank and
file stands disunited not only with the
vacillation of the candidate, but with the
cringing supplication of the delegates. Is j
there no man MBOOg them but Pillsbury? |
Where was Cai- Ci.akk. Maj. Camp, i
SI'MNKU r.\I!.NHAM, C. M. Loi'.lNG, CiKO. '
A. BHACKKTT, GOBDOX and a dozen j
of others whom the party always heretofore
delighted to honor? The result of this ;
glorification Of one man and one family at
thf expense of so many others is seen in the |
peneral apathy now prevailing aiuoni; lead
ing Republicans. Not a man MMMg
then except the PUlobwy fraternity is
earnest in BOpportinc the ■UHh4MOßeehed
candidate. BlttbMM men say "wepretcr a
change. " The working men say "we want
no family monopoly." and all around the
entire circle is manifest the general (ttageat,
into which the self-api>ointed supplicants
liave brought the irraiul old party. For all
of which Democrats |iwe thanks.
TO THE WOIIK.
We «'a!l upon every liberal and broad
minded man in the, city to come to the
rescue in this the boor of the city's danger.
The POXSBCBY family are moving heaven
am! earth ti> save them from the humili
ation of defeat, and will combat the elec
tion no matter how much it may cost them
in money or in work. In this we arc glad
«" Bay they are not backed up by their
usual party leaders. It is cue man, one
family, against the united efforts of the
people. Mayor Pillsbubx, In his
speeches, denies that he is using vast
sums of money to corrupt the vote, but he
does not deny that his son Ciiaim.ik is
throwing it right and left It is well-known
thai his former election cost him the entire
profits of a Hour mill, and this time he will
be willing to put in the mill itself. Let
the peop'e rebuke tuis hollow pretense and
hypocrisy, and show that the ballot in this
country is still the people's best defense.
THE POSITION.
The facts a-; to the campaign are that
Mayor PILL&BCBY repeatedly told Demo
crats that he would "under no circumstan
ces be a candidate." 11»: also spared no
pains to so assure the Republicans. The
Democrats went oy with tttdir canvass be
lieving he would do as he promised. Not
only that but it was expected tho Pii.ls-
BCBT family would lie low in the tight,
and not tear their shirts for the Repub
lican candidate. Acting under this view of
the case, and believing that the tide wa*
running strong in favor of Democracy since
it had the president, the canvas was begun
in good earnest. No«- comes in the mayor.
accepts what he had before declined, puts
the Democrats to apparent disadvantage,
and heirs Republicans for support. Can
Democrats do anything else but render their
best efforts tor their candidate Dr. Ames?
And can Republicans now supporc a man
false to every promise and looking only to
his own gain.
THE IJIFFEUKXCE.
Two years ago George A. Pillsbury
was comparatively a new man. He had
been an alderman in the Fifth ward, and
was careful and industrious. He was be-
lieved to be a good business man and ac
cordingly was elected mayor by a heavy
majority. But two years have rolled by
and he now demands an indorsement. In
stead of devoting himself to the duties of
his ofnce he allowed it to run Itself. He
allowed the charter to be violated by con
tracts with aldermen. He kept i n termed -
dling police officers. He allowed himself to
be the catsptw of others who run his admin
istration in the interest of cliques and
classes. Now the ueople call him to ac
count and refuse the indorsement. They
will elect a live, active, vigorous, broad
minded mayor — and his name will be A. A.
Ames.
FALSE VHOPHETS.
In the last presidential campaign the Re
publican orators one and all insisted that if
( i.kvki.axd wereelected the country would
go to ruin. He was elected, and every
body knows he is making a good president
and that the affairs of the country are
reasonably good. They were simply false
prophets, boobies who didn't know any
better. Now they are talking the same
kind of nonsense, and say that if Dr. Ames
is elected we will have no license and the
city will be one well-hole of sin. But the
people don't believe one word of it. They
know Dr. A.mks has good executive
ability. They know that bin own standing
and future depend upon his being vigilant
and faithful. We believe that Dr. Ames
will make as good a mayor as Cleveland
has made a president. What is far
better, it has been demonstrated that Pills-
BUBY has been a poor mayor.
Not one of the Republican dolep-ates wbo
went on that "secret mission" to have Mayor
Pillsul'ry run ajrain bus so far dared to deny
that it was then and there solemnly pledged
and aereed that if the mayor would but lend
the use of bis name and mo:.ey for this
election, he could then go to Europe, and
Cal Clark would perform bis dutJes for him.
Charlie Is now following his pa's advice
"to pay 5>2 a head for ignorant and debased
foreigners."
Leading Republicans admit that Ames will
bo cur next mayor. Tbe old man is too beavy
for tbeni.
Proxies in mayor offices cannot be tolerated
in this day. Public office is a public trust.
CITY HALL. REPAIRS.
The ITlayor Squarely on Record as
ludor*injr the Mine
To the credit of Mayor Pillsbury let it be
be said that he does not now shirk responsi
bility in connection with the repairs made
on the city hall at an expense of nearly
£53,000. but that whatever may have been
his views heretofore he now declares the
job to have been necessary and economic
ally done; that he also certifies to the in
tegrity of every alderman on the job, and
that there has been nothing wrong In con
nection with it. He doubtless forgets how
be complimented Aid. Uaugan when the
latter called a halt, and the number of per
sons to whom he was outspoken in con
demning the extravagance, and certifies that
be was blind to that which all others saw
and which all the papers have commented
upon. He does not know that the carpeuter
work was done by Aid. Cutter's foreman;
that the iron work was done by Aid.
liashow's foreman; that the painting
was done by Aid. Sly's foreman;
that minor work of various kinds was done
by the foremen of other aldermen. Of
course he doesn't know this, although every
one else around the building does, and were
he conversant with the fact he is too confid
ing to suspect wrong or imagine that any
of the foremen were "stool pigeons." But
he does know and has repeatediy btated to !
others that the work cost at least twice
what it should have cost, and he knows
that if this be true the people have been
swindled to the extent of over 516.000, but
sees "nothing wrong in connection with it."
The people, however, more especially the
'lower strata," keep t^eir eyes open and
will not indorse those who "having eyes
see not, and having ears hear not" — that is,
not when it isn't to their interest.

Affidavits of Men That Thoy Were
Employed by Cutter--\Vaces

S. C. Cutter, the boodle alderman
of the Fifth, has assumed a pitiful air of
injured inmvence. He undertakes to wash
his hands of the s:;:;.ojd city hall job, by
charging D. I>, Smith with being intoxi
cated while in his (Cutter's) emplo... on
the Tribune building, and by aliening that
his ouly connection with the infamous job
was that of overseer. His efiorts in this
direction are checkmated hv atlidaviis of

G. N. Garland, the janitor at the Cii\ hall,

Now as to others. John Klmgreeu, an
other carpenter on the "boodle"' job, made
the following atlidavit yesterday:

John Elmoren.
Subscribed and sworn to before me this 3d
day of April, 1886, U. H Day, notary
public, Henncpin county, Minnesota.
Is not this plain enough to convince any
doubting Thomas? The "boodle" alder
man actually employed John Elmgreen at
M a day to work on the job, and as cliair
mau of the committee on public grounds
and buildings, audited John Elmgreen's pay
roll at 82.50 a day. Who got tlrs extra
50 cents a day? Certainly not S. S. Hmi.ig
ton, the foreman. And if ho did Aid. Cut
ter was directly responsible for it.
Nor is this all. The "boodle" alderman
in his card assailing D. D. Smith, a gentle
man who had the moral courage to aid in
exposing the -'boodle" alderman, alleged
that he (Cutter) had
EMPLOYED XO MAX
on the building, had neither received nor
paid a dollar for work done, and more of
the like. What about John Ludlum? That ;
gentleman aflirms that he was em- :
ployed by S. C. Cutter to "brick i
up" the boilers in the basement of
the city hall, and that when the work had
been completed S. C, Cutter paid him Cor
the job at bis house. Another pointer which
indicates the predicament in which
••boodle" alderman tinds himself: Yester
day BojrlagftOD. Cutter's foreman, called
on L. Yadd. another carpenter who had
been employed on the job. and requested
him t<> refuse' to give any information.
Mr. Yudd replied that he would not lie
about the matter. Shortly after he stated
that he had been employed by S. C. Cutter
on the city-hall job. and that he had been
paid $2 a day and no more. liow does this
compare with the pay roll? The pay roll
shows that the city paid $2.50 a day for L.
Yudd's labor. Who received the extra 50
cents a day? Can there be any question?
And now about the job itself. Nearly
Sol). 000 was expended by the city "under
the supervision of S. C. Cutter" as the up
right and frugal mayor, who would not ac
cept the nomination because it would not
be "manly" nor "honest." said in his won
derful Peterson hall sj>ee<;h. And after it
is done, what is it? Unquestionably an in
ferior job. The workmanship and HuMi is :
far from being first-class. It looks cheap \
and shabby throughout. Competent con
tractors have inspected the work and say
that it should not have cost over $12,000.
There is no means of making an argu
ment more plain, and no means of making
it better understood, than by comparison.
The elegant new Windom block cost about
the amount paid for repairing the city ball.
Think of it. The elegant Windom "block,
than which there is not a handsomer struc
ture in the city, built for 553.000. and that
means from the ground up. That pays for
the architectural work, the materials en- i
tire, the stone, brick and car- j
pe.nter work and tho painting and
■■taking. The interior of the block
is as much finer than the city hall as the
Boston biock is liner than the old antiquated
business blocks built here twenty years
ago. If any voter of the Fifth ward doubts
the comparison, let him investigate before
casting his ballot on Tuesday.
Now. in the face of this array of facts, '
can the conscientious taxpayers and voters
of the Fifth ward use their franchise for S.
C. Cutter? Place iv juxtaposition with the
•'boodle" alderman A lonzo Phillips, the op
position candidate. Mr. Phillips has never
been a partisan and consequently is not ob
jectionable to liberal Republicans. He is
an honest, upright citizen and taxpayer,
and worthy the confidence and trust of
every resident of tne ward. Reflect before
voting for a man who will do his utmost to
bankrupt the city treasury to advance his
personal interests.
PROVISIONS FOR VOTES.
What Mr. Pillsbury Says— The Facts
not Denied.
The Globe of yesterday morning pub
lished the fact that some man unknown,
otherwise than he, "had gray hair and was
well-dressed," was going about the Sixth
ward distributing provisions and urging the
recipients to support and elect Mr. Pills
bury. There was no evidence that this dis
tribution come from Mr. Pilisbury. or the
Republican city committee and Mr. Peter
Noels, who was visited, did not say so. Mr.
C. A. Pillsbury wishes to state this, and
as the Globe desires to be perfectly fair,
his letter is published:
To the Editor of the Globe.

PUOVKV a LIE.
A ( ;t in i>.i i l' ii l anard Quickly I v ; n< «l
Insiili- Out.
Last nizht's Journal, in an early edition,
in a double-leaded editorial, made a great
to do over the statement that Uie Demo
cratic tickets were being printed at a "rat"
ofliee. It howled ai.d shrieked and lashed
itself Into a great fury over this Insult to
workingmen. and calle<l on them to vote
for George A. Pidsbury. When the rejju-
lar edition was issued these articles were
all taken out. the paper having learned, in
the meantime, the utter falsity of the state
ments. The facts are that the tickets are
being printed by Herman Dierck, on North
Washington avenue, and an investigation
by the secretary of the Typographical union
showed him to be an honorary member of
the union, and in good standing with it.
This shows to what desperate straits the
Republican papers are driven. Here is one
which snatched up a false rumor, and with
out tracing tup rushes into a frothy at
tack, Inch it is compelled to eat an hour
later. Bring on the next lie.
TH SIXTH SOLID.
F. 1.. Yanderscn for Ampt-Ai is All
the Disaffected Movement.
One of the staunchest and most con
sistent supporters of Aid. Matthew Walsh
in the Sixth ward is F. L. Vandenton. He
fought hard to secure the aldermauic nomi
nation to Mr. Walsh, and when he was de
feated Mr. Yandersou felt sorry and claimed
unfair dealings had brought about the re
sult While his feelings bad been deeply
lacerated, he still held to the Democratic
ship, and is sanguine of v'etory. He is
working indefaiiirably for Dr. Ames, and
when ha deserted Jacob Stoft for Louis
Fredrlckson tor alderman, he insisted that
ever}' Fred crick son ticket should be beaded
by Dr. Ames for mayor. This proposition
met with full accord, from Mr. Fredricksoa
and 15,000 tickets have been so printed.
This only goes to show that what
ever local misunderstandings and
disaffections there may be in
the Sixth ward, the Democracy still stands
solidly for Dr. Ames, who will carry the
ward by a rousing majority, despite the
immense amount of flour and groceries
that Pillsbury has distributed in the ward,
with the request that each recipient should
vote for him — Pillsbury.
' AN APRIL FOOL.
A Pillsbury Donation That Reached
the rune nan.
On April 1 a colored man presented an
order on Wesley Neill & Co.. received a
half sack of Hour and by paying a quarter
to an expressman bad it carried to his home.
The order came from the Republican com
mittee, but the man who got the flour will
vote for Dr. Ames. The order came
through Dick Jackson and was given to
Charles A. Epps. Epps was reported to be
doubtful and Jackson proceeded to "make
him solid." They met on the sidewalk iv
front of the Republican headquarters and
Jackson used all his eloquence on bis friend
concluding as follows: "Stick by me and
you shall want for nothing." "Well,"
said Epps, "1 want some flour." Accord
ingly the order was given him and be got
the half sack. The philopena Is that he is
an Ames man from base. The transaction
occurred ou All Fools' day.
The I«jror noted Him.
Mayor Pillsbury wilfully misquoted the
remarks of Dr. Ames made in his Bloom
ington avenue speech. What the doctor
did say was that several of our aldermen,
meaning Republicans like Lawrence and Ed
Johnson, were dreamers and impracticable
men— men who had not been in other cities
and did not know how other cities were
managed. Vet Mayor Pillsbury held him
up as saying they were incompetent and the
like. This Is only another of the mayor's
inaccuracies of statement and shows him to
be in his dotage.
Who Support Pillsbnry.
The "Lower Strata." is what the Repub
licans calls the working men ; who support
Dr. Ames. They consider themselves the
equal, at least, of the people who support
Mayor Pilisbury. Among the latter may
be classed Frank Shaw, the gambler, Bar
rett, the notorious "con" man, the street
walkers who have been given unlimited
liberties, the owners of drug stores who
have been allowed to run blind pies for two
years without paying license or fine, and
even the advocacy of the lewd girls of First
street, who have not been fined monthly as
under Dr. Ames' administration.
■. ■_ A Novel U.iscr. . .
J. N. Priest v and Paul Schmederoan
have made a novel wager on the result of
the election. Mr. Priestu proposed the
wager that in case Dr. Ames did not receive
3.000 majority in the city, lie should stand
on the comer of Nicollet avenue and Wash
ington and sell red-hots for three hours,
and in case Dr. Ames actually got 3.000
majority Priestu is to sell the red-hots.
The proposition was accepted, and a for
feiture of SSO each was posted.
Bohemians and Poles.
j • The Bohemians and Poles of the First
ward held a rousing meeting last nleht in
Yoss hall. Frank Sella presided, and en

Goluff to Piece*.
The process of disintegration through
which the Republican party seems to have
been passing since its city convention was
held has allowed a secret to leak out, the
revelation of which should have a decided
Influence upon Tuesday's election. It has
been suspected, and hinted at. that in MM
of the re-electiou of Mayor Pillsbury. that
Cal (.'lark, the president of the council,
will bo mayor defacio during a greater por
tion of the term. Only until within the
past few days has what may De regarded as
proof positive of this been developed. Yes
terday the Globe received assurances that
leaves no doubt M to a deliberate plot to
force upon the people as their mayor Calvin
W. Clark, the prohibitionist and narrow
guaire fanatic, who would not receive half
the vote of his own party, nor one-fourth
the vote of the people of the city, if he
should mo as an out-and-out candidate.
It needs no assurance as to the truth of this
assertion If a minutes' candid thought will
be given Jo the circumstances leading to the
nomination of George A. Pillsbury. Mayor
I'illsbury months ago stated positively that
he would not be a candidate. As the cam
paign drew near he took occasion to re
iterate the statement in the most positive
language possible. He announced his de
cision as Irrevocable to his own friends and
the friends of other candidates. He even
requested the publication of this declination
in the Globe. At the conference of the
union league club and prominent Republi
cans held at the Windsor hotel be said in
language that could nut be misunderstood.
that he would not, under any circumstances
be a candidate. At the city convention
he mounted the stage and repeated his inten
tion of declining a nomination if it should be
tendered him. savins; it would be "neither
uia-ily nor honorable" for him to accept,
lie then left the hall, and when one hour
later he was waited upon by a committee,
he withdrew his declination and accepted a
nomination which was tendered by a doubt
ful majority of the convention. W hat could
have induced a man of Mayor Pillsbury's
standing to have directly and publicly vio
lated repeated promises and pledges, which
would have been binding obligations upon
any man of honor? Simply this. He gave
as his reason for wish to retire from the
oflice of mayor, that he was tired aud de
sired to take
A TBIP TO EUKOPE.
This objection was removed by the as
surance that If he was re-elected that he
need not serve, and could go to Europe, as
his place would be tilled by Cal Clark, He
was assured that it was absolutely uecessary
for him to accept the nomination, as Clark
could not be elected. It was upon this con
dition that Mayor Plllsbury yielded, aud
apparently stultified himself by accepting a
nomination which be had declared would be
neither "honorable nor manly" for him to
receive.
A little study of the convention's pio
ceedlngs reveals how perfectly the scheme
was understood by Clark's friends, who
worked In conjunction with the Pills
buryites. Just before the noon adjourn
ment one Informal and one formal ballot
was taken. H. L. Gordon, who appeared
In Clark's interest, opposed the taking of
the ballots, saying "if we adjourn over for
dinner I promise you gentlemen that we
shall know something more about
the situation when we come together at 3
o'clock." His object evidently was to gain
tune for an explicit understanding. The
ballots taken In the morning were unde
cisive. When the convention met in the
afternoon the faces of several prominent
leaders, (who were afterwards appointed
on the committee to apprise Mayor Pills
bury of his nomination) were serene, and
they smilingly expressed their certain belief
that Mayor Pillsbory would be the candi
date, i And it appears that her knew ex
actly what they were talking about The
convention was called to order. Mayor
Pillsbury made his declination speech. A
ballot was taken which was indecisive. C.
A. Pillsbury received twenty-two votes and
steuped forward Xp decline. Col. H. G.
Hicks, a Clark delegate, for the purpose of
securing an ovation, proposed that he be
nominated by acclamation. It was carried.
Mr. Pillsbury mounted the platform and
declined. Hicks was carried away by his
enthusiasm and moved that the declination
be not accepted. He made a wrong move
here, and William Henry Eustis took a bop,
skip and a jump to his side, a
whispered consultation took pace
and Hicks withdrew his nomination
Gordon then nominated Cal Clark in a
speech in which be conspicuously referred
to him as the "exponent of the Pillsbury
administration. Another ballot was taken
and K. B. Langdon, who received 35 votes,
arose
JUST AT THE RIGHT TIME
and withdrew in favor of Pillsbury. The
next ballot was taken and resulted in O.
A. Pillsbury receiving 71 votes, which was
declared to be a majority of all the votes
cast The total number of votes cast was
announced to be 143. whereas the conven
tion was only entitled to 141. So it Is evi
dent that the ballot was stuffed, and it is
quite probable and in keeping with the
general line of tactics ployed that the
two votes were put in to give Pillsbury
a majority. But a miscalculation
was made; 71 is not a majority of
143, so Pillsbury- did not. In reality
have any majority. At the same time the
announcement that he had seventy-one
votes, which was known to be the neces
sary majority tor a nomination, was suffi
cient to deceive the convention, and the
"stuffing" was overstocked. A committee
was sent to wait upon Mr. Pillsbury. Gor
don at first declined to serve on it, but
afterwards, at his own suggestion, was
sent alter the committee. The committee
gained from Mr. Pillsbury an acceptance of
the. nomination upon the understanding
that he should not it elected, be required
to till the office, i but could go -to
Europe, and leave Cal Clark,
the "exponent" of his administra
tion, to govern the city in accordance
with his own peculiar ideas. The expose
of this disreputable scheme to force upon
the people a mayor whom they do not want,
needs but little comment The only way
in which the plot can be successfully
thwarted Is to elect Dr. A. A. Ames mayor
of the city — a man who will attend to the
important duties of the office himself.
