The address to the workingmen of the "United States issued by tiie executive) board of the three assemblies of the Kulgbts of Labor embraced within the limits of the Southwestern strike sounds more like the prommciamento of a Paris commune than tax appeal from sensible, intelligent Amen can laborers. Instead of a candid intelli gent statement of grievances, as was ex pected from the striking employes of the Gould system, they have issued a wild ap peal to the worst passions of human na ture. The address embodies some lamentable truths, to be sure, but they are presented in such fiery and unreasonable language that the address itself amounts to little less than Incendiarism. It is in all respects the wont blow that has yet been struck at the labor organizations, inasmuch as it will divert sympathy from ther cause and will arouse a public indignation against the men Who dare give expression to such incendiary utterances. It is true that Jay Gould is a money monarch, and it may be true, as the address states, that he is a giant fiend dancing over the grave of the labor organ ization. That these things are true is no justification lor the nihilistic spirit of this remarkable document. If it had been the emanation of a single individual or of some isolated socialistic club it would have excited no comment. But coming as it does authoritatively from a duly accredited branch of the Knights of Labor organization, compromising three of the largest and most effective assemblies of the order, there are reasons why public at tention should be directed to it and the in quiry made, what does it all mean? The answer will depend on the action of the general executive committee of the Knights of Labor order. If the sentiment of that address is not immediately repudiated by the leaders and the rank and file of the la bor organizations throughout the country the impression will at once fasten itself upon the public mind that it means the in auguration of an era of violence. if such be the meaning the American people had as well understand the situation and at once prepare to overthrow the conspiracy against the public peace. If, however, the address proves to be only the idle ravings of a few chagrined local leaders, as we are in clined to think it is, we shall expect the labor organizations throughout the country to promptly and publicly set the seal of condemnation upon the incendiary docu ment. It is barely possible that the address ■was published by Jay Gould's direction, as he seems to have been manipulating both ends of the string in that section all alone. The munitions strikers under the leader ship of Irons have refused to heed the wise counsels of Powderly and his as . sociates, which fact has given rise to the suspicion that Ikons is really more in the service of Gould than he is in sympathy with the success of the labor organizations. Whenever the workingmen employ per fectly lawful and peaceful methods in their light against the corporations they com mand respect, even though they fail. Bui •whenever they bring the rifle into use, and talk about laying railroad presidents dead at their feet, they are laying the axe at the root of their own organization. This is a government of law and order, and is going to continue so. THE NORTHWEST FOR APRIL.. The April number of the Northwest Magazine, which has just been issued. is one of the largest and most interesting numbers of that popular magazine which has yet been published. It is an almost exclusively St. Paul number, containing in addition to a large number of handsomely executed pictures of the most promi"ent persons and buildings of the city, a series of well-written sketches relating to the varied interests of St. Paul. Among the illustrations are portraits, with accompany ing biographical sketches, of Mayor Kick, Gen. Saxhorn, Commodore Davidson. Senator Grigos. Bishop Ireland, Hon. William Dawson, Hon. Lewis Baker, D. W. Ingersoll, W. EL Merriam, D. D. Merrill. L. N. Scott. E. S. Edger ton, Thomas Cocuran, Prof. Phelps, C. W. Sackett, Capt. Bkrkky and other leading citizens. Among the special articles are the following: Picturesque St. Paul, by Joel Benton; Winter Life in St. Paul, by George 11. Moffett; Pros perous St. Paul, by George D. Eastin: Healthful St. Paul, by Dr. Talbot Jones; St. Paul as a Banking Center, by D. A. Monfort; St. Paul as the Head of Navi gation, by E. V. Sm alley: St. Paul as a Manufacturing Center, by W. F. Puelps; St. Paul as a Railroad Center, by E. W. Winter; St. Paul Real Estate, by Thomas Cochban, Jr.; St. Paul as a Lumber Market, by J. P. Gribijen, and St. Paul as a Trade Center, by D. R. No yes. The illustrations are all artistic gems, and will compare favorably with the ■work done by the best magazines In the East. DON'T DO IT. To the Editor of the Globe: St. Paul, April 3, 1886.— Sir: Will you please inform me through your paper in •what branches a person is examined In tboee civil service examinations? Also what step must a person take to enter the employ of the government? Also what are the neces sary qualifications? What is the aver salary paid government employes? Truly yours, J. M. G. By applying to the member of Congress ' from his district or to any member of the civil service commission at Washington our correspondent can get all the information he desires. But if he desires to obtain employment in the government service our advice to him is to let the matter drop. If anybody in your neighborhood has a job of grubbing or fence building or anything of the sort to let. then take, it rather than to enter the government service as a clerk In a department. To a young man of energy and ambition employment in the govern ment service is little better than a living tomb. It is a species of galling servitude which opens no avenue of eminence to the aspiring youth. Keep away from Wash ington. Now that congress is likely to appropriate $160,000 for the purchase of ground in St. Paul for a bomlel warehouse and to pay for the present public building, a few hundred thousand more might be a Idod to the sum and a postoffice building erected which would do credit to the city and in some measure meet the requirements. If there is anything that Duluth has that Congressman Nelson wants be need only ask for it. Sinoe getting the Duluth public build- Ing bill through, it is believed be could secure the mayoralty of that city by acclamation. As this seems to be a Demooratlo year, he might do well to take advantage of hisoppor- t unity. I.itti.k Greeoo having carefully viewed the landscape o'er, has found a hole to crawl out of and will not light. The wheat speculators who bought for a rise because of their ooun dence in Greece's warlike intentions are naturally highly iudignaul over such incon sidi rate action. A gram) national tribute will be paid to Gen. Git ant's meiuorv on Decoration Day In Riverside park, and Hubert E. Leo Tost, Coufoderuto veterans of Richmond, will send I suitable ottering. Certain senators and representatives might bo reminded by this fact that the war is over. Senator Logan, in bis desire to pose as a friend of the soktler, imw that his army bill ha* t>cen defeateJ, recognize* that by po do ing he was cutting a very poor figure iv the friend of tho people, who alrvnJy pay large bills lor useless aiiny ornamentation. Jay Gould can certainly do no less than offer the talented composer of that address which desiguutes him as the "giant tiend" and the "money monarch" a position as his private secretary. He would then be able to out-bulletin the Knights. The Illustrated Graphic New* is a new aa4 exceedingly praiseworthy Chicago publica tion. With commendable enterprise it de votes an cutiie page to excellent illustrations ot tin- MtnnoKutn club house and the officers of that organization. Sully county.

This Is one feature of Dakota productiveness which perhaps might as well bo omitted from immigration litera ture. Cattle are dying of starvation in the South west. In Montana they are fat enough to be slaughtered on the range. There is a differ ence In climates and that difference is very rarely to the discredit of the Northwest. - Considering the clean sweep made by tbe Democrats throughout the West and the ter rific floods and storms in the East, this seems to be a good time for the Republican brethren to turn from the error of their ways. A number of costly buildings arc projected for the coining season. With the attention of investors turned from outside acre specu- s.the city will be lation to inside a gainer in more ways than oue. John H. Oberlt of Illinois, having been confirmed as ciril service commissioner, all the Chicago "boys" are looking over the civil list to see what is loft that they want. The chances are they will all be left. Tbeue is a prospect that conirtees will con tinue until August. There seems to have been sumo foundation (or the prophecy that the .ear 1806 would be notable for great calam ities. Another Drum Lummon mine has been discovered in Montana which would seem to indicate that nature expects a senatorial election to take place in that territory very soon. It is now said that congress is likely to as sent to the division of Dakota without admis sion. What is tbe use of cutting a pie into halves if neither one can be eaten. The startling assertion Is made that the president and his cabinet weigh a ton. It is. perhaps, needles to remark that, neverthe less, it is all live weight. Senator Logan's till for the 1 ncrease of the army having been defeated, the country will score one on tbe credit side of congress' account. The Traveller Is tho name of a new Washington paper. It is perhaps tbe organ of out going Republican officeholders. The bluebirds have made their appearance, but the reckless drivers, like the poor, are always with us. MIDST THE MADDING THBONG- Amos Jordan is a newspaper man, in whose keepiug is Intrusted tbe interests and well beintr of the Fargo Republican. Amos knows a good thing when be sees it, and can at sight tell the difference between the coin of the realm and the quoin used in a com posing room. Amos I a arood and accom >llshed man.and can write an effective editorial on the con tinued prosperity of the great and grow ing Northwest, of which Fargo is tbe natural and geo graphical center, or be can rld«> on a pass and eujoy the luxuries of a railroad train. There \n> a time when this shining light among the many promising newspaper men oi Use Northwest could tell an April fool Joke us far as he could see it. He is married now, and his glass eye has forgot its cunuing. V The good Amos formerly lived at Minneap olis, where he served as managing editor of the different issues of the newspaper combi nation in that city. He knows by sad ex perience that every year the morning issue of that combination has an April fool article that has electrified the reading public. April 1 would not seem natural in Minneapolis if the morning paper tieprk>cted to perpetrate a joke on its readers. 'Ibe live and get-up-get managers know when they strike a good thing and they never let up on that particu lar good thing until death removes them from this busy world of care. The day on which the present month was ushered In, the Min neapolis paper contained the customary articles. One gave a description of the cav ing in of the tower of the local suspension bridge, and the other was a bogus dispatch, made up in the office.glvingan account of the death of Clara Belle, the unknown writer, whose articles are general 1? popular among the reading public. The dispatch in question was dated New York, an 1 gave Clara Belle's real name and her imaginary history. V Amos, the Fargo editor, read the suspen sion bridge accident In the Minneapolis paper and straightway pronounced it a canard. Ho dashed off an editorial setting forth the in iquity of euch practices and made good and telling points by maintaining that a papert lost prestige by imposing on iv readers. I concluded by assuring the readers of the Re publican that they would never be deceived. It also made bold the assertion that the Re publican, having direct communication with the rest of the world, itsdigpatcbes were gen uine and never manufactured in the home office. In another column of the page, containing this editorial, was a special telegram to the Republicau from New York. In it was de tailed the life, history and sudden death of the popular newspaper contributor, Clara Belle. The only possible explanation or the error Is that the New York correspondent of the Fargo Republican got hold of the Minne apolis paper, containing the (Mara Belle arti cle, on the day of its publication. The corre spondent will, no doubt, be changed at once, as such imposition on the good and confiding Amos is most reprehensible. •♦* ASt Paul woman, the wife of an old set tler whose wealth and elegant St. Anthony hill residence are not totally unknown to the denizens of the ..social world, bad occasion not long ago to romtm'jer her lei*e lord on the anniversary of hi* birth. An elegant present was purchased for him. The selec tion was made, when it occurred to her that perhaps the recipient might not be perfectly suited therewith. The proprietor assured her that it was not perfectly satisfactory it would be returned and a second selection mad "Weil, I hope It will suit" remarked the woman as she started out of the store, "but I will return it if is dissatisfactory to him."

RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. Utl Train* lor < litt ugo. For some time intimations have been nude that the Milwaukee and Omaha roads would put on fast trains belwee n St Paul and ( "hicairo. but the carrying out of the determination or intimation has been really expected by the public. The public will therefore be very agreeably di> appoints! to be informed that each of these roads will put on a fast train be tween .st. Paul and Minneapolis and Chi cago on the second day of May next. It was stated iv a dispatch to a morning paper yesterday that the Milwaukee »* >t. Paul alone- would put on a fast train be tween the points named. This is not correct. The new departure will be a joint movement. The fast trains will start the same moment from the point of departure and both will run on schedule time, it Is not known what time they will make. The full orders or instruction* in regard to them have not yet been prom ulgated. It has been asserted that they would make the trip in thirteen hours from point to point. At present tiiere is no authority for this statement. Late > day afternoon no agent or representative of either of the roads in St. Paul had any further information upon the subject than is stated above. It is understood that there will be no additional charge made tor tickets on these fast trains. No second business will be taken. A good many people are curious to see what the other roads will do in regaid to the change. For Lower I'acienfrr Rales. The board of railroad commissioners yes terday had a preliminary interview with the traffic manager of the Manitoba road rela tive to the n'xlng a maximum passenger rate of 8 cents per mile. The commission ers think that the time has come when the maximum rate for passengers in this state should be fixed at 8 cent*. The same topic will be discussed with each of the state roads. No conclusion was reached yester day, and another conference will be had next week. The rate of 3 cents a mile has been fixed in lowa. Wisconsin. Illinois. Kansas. New York. Michigan, Missouri and South Caro lina, and it is reported that a move for a re duction of 1 cent |>er mile is soon to be made in Dakota, where it is 5 cents now. No position hat. been taken by the railroad otlicials in this state further* than to assent to a discussion on the matter. For the Pacific Coast. George Darling, general agent of the New York Ceutral road; Arthur Mills, traffic manager of the Boston & Albany road: B. B. Mitchell, general manager of the Blue Line freight; C. S. Tappeu. general man seer of the Nickel Plate line, were In M. Paul yesterday. These gentlemen left on the evening train on the Northern Pacific road for the Pacific coast- It is the lirst time they have been west of St PauL Miarp Practice*. New York, April 7. — The agent* of the Atchison and Sunset lines held a confer ence this morning and decided to extend rates until Thursday next Wise men on the street claim that this is done because the next Pacific Mail steamer sails on Thurs day, and that the new combination, which is said to have gained the control of the steamship line, will not take the manage ment until the following steamer leaves.

The Standaid ad mits that the Conservatives are powerless, without the assistance of Lord Huntington. and that an attempt at Isolated Con servative action would result in a victory for Mr. Gladstone. The Liberals believe that they will be able to carry the measure through its second reading anil that the real danger will arise in committee. There is a rumor, that the bill as modified will meet witii less opposition from Mr. Chamberlain. Special arrangements have been made for reporting and teleeraphine the speech.

Laredo, April .7.— Laredo tonieht is in sack cloth and ashes. ? The intense excite ment and lawlessness which have prevailed hen* for the past fortnight culminated this evening in a bloody riot. The immediate causo Is attributed by many to a circular which ap peared this morniufr. announcing that the Democrats would bold funeral services at 4 o'clock over the party known here as Huarcncs. Directly after the appearance of the circular, it was announced that the Huarcbes party would probably face any such demonstration. At 4p. m. the streets leading to the point where the Demo cratic procession was announced to start was blockaded with armed men. ' Later the music of the Democratic band struck up and the procession moved down Main street and turned into the stir leading Into tho main plaza. When the head of the column bad reached in front of Martin's store a party of men, armed with Winchesters and re volvers, charged the procession. Instantly OTKR 100 AHMED MEN became engaged in deadly conflict and for half an hour a rcsrular battle raged alouir the street. During the conflict a small c.nnoi which had been used by the Huarchcs party was fired down the streed, and It is sad to have been loaded with nails and stoves. By & o'clock the mob spirit was supreme. Word was dispatched to Gol. Barnard, commandant at Fort Mclntosh. that the heavy firing in tbe city was caused by a Mcxlcau attack from the oth r side of the Hlo Grande. It took but a few minutes to double-quick two companies of infantry into town, befo c whom tbe mob quickly dlsapp< a cd. The casualties so far as known, are five killed and three wound, d.

The St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway Company, appellant, vs. The City of Minne apolis, respondent. Syllabus— Under the city charter conferring' general powers to lay out and extend streets, an authority to extend the same across the roadway of a railway corporation will, as a general rule, be Implied. The appropriation of land occupied as such roadway for a street crossing in such cases is necessarily subject to the prior public use of the railway corpora tion, but is not ordinarily inconsistent with It. The action of a city council in determining the necessity and propriety of extending' streets in such cases, if regular, is not sub ject to judicial revision except from appeal. In the asiws-ment of damages for such street crossing, it is error to offset supposed benefits to the railway company for the open ing of such street across such railway. Hut where a remedy is offered by appeal for the correction of erroneous assessments the pro ceed! nm are not void for suuii cause.

I dissent as to cases arising before the pass age of the law of lt»8">. I think it is invalid within the principles laid down in State vs. Folcy. 30 Minn., 350. where the power of the legislature to provide for the payment of money out of the publio treasury to an indi vidual is made to depend upon tho existence of some obligation, legal or moral, on the part of tne state or county to pay it. In a case like this arising before the act was passed, there was certainly no legal obligation. In the case of a tax sale, when the state assumes to sell and the purchaser expects to get a;id pays bis money to get the land, if the latter doe* not gel what he buys and pays for. If the stato uoes not pass to him what it as sumes to sell and what It receives his money tor, there may be a moral obligation to rrp iy. It arises out of the contract which hat i ailed. Hut n receiving payment of taxes the state makes no contract; it does not assume to transfer anything to the person paving; be does not expect to get anything f o:n the state, as between him and the state only effect of the payment and the only effect expected is to discharge the land I rora its obligation to the state, and It does this whether the person paying has or has not any interest in the land, and whether the taxes have been or have not been regularly assessed. Any per son mar pay such taxes and with bis motive in paying the state has nothing to do. If he pays because be thinks his interest requires it. or because he thinks he will uojuire some right as against a third person, that is his lookout. The state does not assume by re ceiving the tax to secure any such advantage to him. I can see no moral obligation to re pay in such a case. Gilfillan, C J. APRIL TERM.

The Boston Ideals terminated their engage ment at the Grand opera house lost nuht, when they presented Auber's ever-pleasing romantic- opera ot "Fra Diavolo." The audi ence, while not as lar»ie as attended tho pro duction of the new operas "Adina" and "Maid of Honor." nearly tilled the house and was quite as enthusiastic as any of its prede cessors. The cast included Karl in the title role, Marie Stone as Zerlina. Agnes Hunting ton as Lady Parmela, Uarnabec as Lot U lloc bunr.Monell as Lorenzo and Clark and Froth iogbam as lleppo and (liaeomo, respectively. The houors of the evening were accorded to Clark, whoso deep and sympathetic bass voice was given full force, his uioct takinur number being an interpolated sour. H.s ac ing of the part was highly commendable. He was ably assisted by Frothlngbain, and their duet in the last act, an im itation of Zerlfna's aria, was doubly encored. Next in order of merit was the Zellna or Marie Stone who displayed her usual care and ability and sang in her pleas- Ing manuer. She was the recipient, during the evening, of a beautiful Moral offering. Karl :o >ked and acted his part to perfection but was not at his best singing voice. Barna !•(•!• und Miss Huntington made the best of their respective lines and scores as did also Morscll.

The Stats Lunacy Commission's Re* port on the Insane Hospital*. The state lunacy commission, comprised of G. Weston Wood and C. H. Boardman, has submitted a report of its recent visit to the insane hospitals ot Minnesota to (low Hubbard. At the time of the visit there were at the Rochester asylum 603 patients under treatment, of whom 303 were males and 304 females. During the past year twenty-two deaths have occurred and four have escaped. The hospital was found in good condition, and 50 per rent, of the in , mate* are employed, with a probability that this proportion will increase when tuo spring is further advanced. The commis sion notes with pleasure the decrease in the custom of restraining the Inmates by mechanical means, and it says In classic language that this practice is falling into "desuetude,"' not only innocuous, but praiseworthy. The sanitary condition of the institution is good. At the St. Peter asylum there are 502 males and 306 females. Twenty-three death? have occurred during the past year and nine escapes have been made. The number that are under mechanical restraint is relatively no larger than at Rochester. The commission recommends, among other things, a suitable gymnasium for both in stitutions. Daniare* Asked. A complaint was tiled in the district court by David T.Dolan against William Twombly In which 55.000 is asked. The complaint alleges that whi le Dowlan was in Twombly's saloon conducting himself in an orderly manner, defendant caused certain unknown parties to a-.-;ul him and seriously cut and otherwise injure him; that defendant aided these acts and refuses to disclose the name.s of those who made. To a reporter Mr. Twombiy stated that he was in conversation with a gentleman when the row between Dolan and the others broke out. He could not say how it started and does not know where the blame is to be placed. Dolan had been about tor some time and he had not noticed him driuking. When the noise attracted his attention he undertook to stop the tight, but one of the two men (each be*ng unknown to him) pre sented a revolver to his breast and ordered him not to stop the ruction under penalty of being shot A Bullet Through His Head. About 7 o'clock yesterday morning Her man Bachmun was found in his room, at 137 Martin street, with a bullet hole through bis head. He was found by his brother-in-law aud was ulive, although the deed had been committed several hours before. Dr. Fitz sinion was suimnotie 1 and pronounced the wound not nocossarily fatal.

The indications were that the man had placed the weapon in his mouth and tired, the ball coming out at the back of bis head. He was taken, later in the day, to St. Joseph's hospital and was resting easily last night, nachmau has a faiiiily in Brooklyn, N. V., fronn whom he has been separated ton years. He is proprie tor of the small candy aud cigar store at the corner of Rice and Martin streets. Father Cotter* J ■<• jaence. Rev. Father Cotter of Winona addressed a male audience at the cathedral last night that flllod the spacious structure. Upwards of 2,rjuO men were present, ane they were held in the deepest interest for more than one hour and a half. The speaker dealt with the subject of temperance, which he handled in masterly style. Ho pictured in graphic style the life of the drunkard and th ■ road that be traveled in his downward coarse, and appealed eloquently to bis listeners to shun the door of tti" saloon and work in the inter ests of tuinpiranue. At the close of his re marks, printed pledges were pas<eJ through the audience, an 1 nearly 900 or them were accepted. It was a successful and interest ing sermon. Kail roads Are Pout-Roads. Ju<Ue Brill yesterday issued an order de nying the motion for an injunction in the case of the Western Union Telegraph com pany vs. the St. Paul A Du'uth Railroad company. In his decision the judge says: All railroads in the United States are post roads, and tho provisions of the act of io I jfress of July 24, 1836. rendered it impossible for any person or company to obtain in any manner the exclusive right to build or main tain a line of telegraph along any post-road. Any company which brings itself within the prov.s.ous of that act may build and operate a line of telegraph along any railroad in the United States upon acquiring the usual right of way, notwithstanding a iy state legislation or any contract to the contrary. Judge Brill also holds that the contract in this case does not grant an exclusive right. as it does not expressly so state, nor is such implication necessary. A Late St. Paul Fire.

ADDITIONAL MI3OIEAFOLI3 NEWS. COL. IW. TV. GLENN. He Lea the Drnincrntlc Hordes to a Glo.ious Victory. All will accord that Col. M. W. Glenn has been a potential factor in the campaign. As a political organizer he has no superior, and resultant upon his efforts in the strug gle just cloHed. Col. (ilenn is now recog nized as a politician of worth. Many there were who Kicked over the trace 3 and proved recreant tv tbe party, just at the critical moment. They are now shedding tears of remorse in a private closet. A few enthusiasts who have hitherto declared a preference for Democracy, and who es poused the cause of the Pillsburys, are now in sackcloth and ashes. At almost any other time they could have bolted and yet been forgiven, bnt under the exigencies of the present campaign, no one is forgiven for playinsr Judas. The Spectator of Saturday, March 20, said in reference to Col. Glenn: "Col. M. W. (Jlcnn lias been tor many years prominently identified with the indu stria) in terests of the city, htu'injr t>y skill and perse verance built up an extensive business in connection with tbo Minneapolis Boiler Works. He was born at Newark, If. J., Dec. 24, 1830, and is therefore in his Stlth year, but looks at least flfteen years younger. At an early age he went to Mt. Vcrnon, 0., and when 11 years oid, entered a machine shop. Entering tho army during the war aa color bearer of the Eighth ludiuua regiment, he served so well that he was successfully pro moted until he became adjutant of the Tbirty flfth Indiana, ar.d alter his return home was mode colonel of the Seventeenth Ohio militia. He still hears the sears of wounds received at the battle of Rich Mountain. In 1-468 heeauie to Minneapolis and was for years with the North Star Iron Works. When he purchased his present builer works in 1878.it was a mer« side adjunct of the old Minnesota Iron Works. Having brought to the business a wide ac quaintance and high reputation for mechani cal skill, he soon became a leading boiler man ufacturer of the Northwest. His establish ment gives constant employment to sixty men. For fourteen yearn Col. Glenn was in the city ooun li, was chairman of the board of county commissioners, and has frequently made a stir in local politics. In person he is of stalwart and rugged proportions. He is said to have already acquired considerable woalth and seems on the high and royal road to l'ortuue." THE SODA TIOTORS To Take the Place of Steam Within Sixty Days. The Minneapolis. Lyndale & Minnetonka Railway company has ordered eight of the Honigman soda motors, adapted to narrow guage tracks, and has purchased the right to operate the same in the state of Minne sota, the consideration approximating SIOO, --000. The motors will be ready within sixty days, and will take the place of steam and bone power. The work on the Hutchinson extension is progressing, and a delegation from Watertown was in the city consulting with the managers of the road relatve to bringing the motor to that place. ANOTHER KICK. The decision by the supreme court for the motor company in the suit commenced three years ago by George K. Newell to enjoin tne operation of the road on First avenue south, does not appear to have put a quietus upon the kicking of property owners. It is claimed that the supreme court only passed upon the question as it existed three years ago, and it reserved the right to change it if evidence shows that the tracks have driven travel from the street, thus making additional servitude, under which circumstaneesitcannot remain. On the strength of this it is reported that some of the property owners of Xicollet and First avenues intend to bring suit iv the United States circuit court, with the intention of carrying it to the United States supreme court, if necessary, and to aiso bring suit in the district court, to secure damages for the conversion of the street and injury to abutting property. The law yer engaged to bring the actions says, con cerning the decision of the supreme court: "The suit brought years ago. and upon which the supremo court bus just passed, presented an altogether different state of thitu s .rom that which now exists. At that time there were no double tracks the speed was not so great, and the cars were not so largo as now used. If the motor can occupy the streets to-d:iy under existing circum stances, then I say that the provision of tho constitution of the state of Minnesota which provides for remuneration for private prop erty taken for public purposes is a meaning less phrase and a flittering generality." POLICE U\ I lIEUIXGS. Alex Munday paid a tine of $5 yesterday for assaulting Fred Ashendorf. In the city lockup are two men arrested for disorderly conduct. An admirer of Ames had a falling out with a follower of Pills b;i y. They came to b ows and the Pillsbury supporter got the worst of the oontact. The two will be arraigned to-day. Olivia Anderson, the girl charged with stealing 100 and a gold watch from Frank Howard, was examined yesterday In the mu nicipal court. She testified that she had staid over night in the room of the complaining wit ness and that she took the watch as a joke, but did not take any money. She was dis charged. A Conductor's Death. The remains of A. J. Jennings, freight con ductor on the Minneapolis & St. Louis road, arrived in the city yesterday Tuesday night he was missed from his train at Wascca. and a search resulted in bis dead body being found on the Ice, he apparently having been knocked off the train while it was crossing a bridge. The deceased was formerly a passenger conductor on the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern road, and came to Minnesota last December. He was the uncle of A. W. Ehle, the tobacconist, and G. H. Parkell with Dunham and Johnson, is bis stepson. He leaves a wife and family at Detroit, whither his remains were sent last evening. The City Sustained. In the supreme court yesterday a decision was Bled,* in the case of the Manitoba railway against the city of Minneapolis, in which the court of Hennepin county was sustained. The suit was brought by the Manitoba to pre vent the extension of Fourteenth avenue southwest across its right of way. The city demurred and the demurrer was sustained. An appeal was taken by the road, with the result as above stated. The syllabus will be found elsewhere in this morning's Globe. Political ler- Thoughts. Tho Tribune of yesterday had a very weak fling at tho Independent drum corps which played "the music that Dr. Ames marched to during the war." The corps was composed of veterans, w hose appearance at the differ ent polling places were greeted with repeated cheers. Their efforts to cheer on the efforts to elect an old comrade should at least com mand respect even from political opponents. Minneapolis Gun Club.
