Maj. ISewson has bad Enoucto of
his False Friends.
Maj. T. M. Newson, late candidate for
city treasurer, sat in his office yesterday af
ternoon looking as smiling as if there had
been no snowstorm the day before.
"I am now going to get back to my old lines
of thought." lie said to aGbOBB reporter who
called, "and except that 1 have been thrown
a Little out of gear by the fact of my candi
dacy, I don't see that I am any the loser by
the campaign. It has Involved me in very
little expense, my character has not .been i as
sailed. 1 have not been charged l with being
dishonest; and at my time of life, with ithe
heavy responsibilities that are coupled with
the office of city treasurer, perhaps it i* well
that the election resulted as It did L There is
one thing that troubles me somewhat- that
hurts my feelings. Men whom 1 counted a.-,
£?»£ whom I have known and whose
names have been handed down m Instorj free
of charge, through my Pen Pictures-men
in the Republican party that nominated me,
turned square around and either
or remained at home and allowed me to be
stowed under. For those that did work I
have he most sincere thanks. 'ihe Republi
can party has had its last chance. It had an
opportunity to have gained the confidence of
',' workingmen, and with them to have come
into power in this city, but when their plat
form had been made and everything was in
proper condition for success, the party, by
apathy foolish utterances in its organs, and
what the silk-stockinged Republicans chose
to call "bad management," has deliberately
thrown away its last hope. It can never get
any sympathy irom the workingmen, and lor
myself 1 will never advise aworkingman to
join it. Henceforth my advice to the work
in-man in doubt as to which party to give his
alliance to. will be to go with the Democrats,
But !am out of politics. Ido not know that
] regret the campaign especially. Its results
are simply another illustration of the ingrati
tude Of this world. I shall write no more
Pen Pictures. I am done with them. No
more will 1 speak the praises of the men who
have deserted me in this hour."

"I want you to send a man up to the house
right away," said a trim little lady, as she
bounced into a plumber's shop yesterday af
ternoon. "The water wont run off in the
bath-tub, and some men that were working
down in the cellar jammed the waste pipe
that runs from the kitchen and it leaks, and
1 think I'll have a new sink put in auyway."
"Well, we cant doit this afternoon anyway,
and probably uot before the last of the week"
was the reply, as the plumber stuck his hands
In his pockets and looked out the window.
"We have got a good deal of work ahead of
us and have but very few men. You see the
plumbers are most all on a strike and work
has to wait."
"O yes, I forgot. I heard about the strike,
too. Mercy, I hope there won't be any shoot
The plumber laughed and assured her that
she was in no personal danger."
"Well, you will send up a man as soon as
you can, won't you?"
"Yes, or 111 go up myself about Saturday,
said the plumber, and as the lady hoisted her
parasol he turned to the reporter, who asked
him if the public was getting in a good many
kicks on the situation.
"No, nearly everybody understands the sit
uation and is willing to wait until we can tend
to the work. Several men told me to-day that
they would wait until we got men, and one
man who wanted a job done said he would
wait a year if necessary. In a good many
cases public sympathy is with the strikers,
but in this case it seems to be with us."
W. J. Freaney said that there was no
change in the situation, and that some of
the strikers had visited some of the boys he
had at work trying to get them to quit.
The stonecutters who yesterday heard, in
imagination, the clear, regular clicks of
union points on the Kasota stone of the
court house job did not feel so confidei
yesterday afternoon. The arbitration com
mittee that Mr. Breen was expected to ap
point failed to materialize.
On Tuesday cabinet-makers in Tike em
ploy of the St. Paul Furniture company,
struck for nine hours' work and ten hours'
pay. Twelve finishers and machine hands
went out with them. The manager said
yesterday that the wages averaged $2.25 a
day, which was higher than was paid at any
other factory in the West. The men find no
fault with the wages, but want the nine
hours, and would probably be willing to take
nine hours pay. The manager says that
they will agree to work nine hours at nine
hours pay whenever any other firm in the
city will do the same. Some of the strikers
went back to work yesterday. A committee
from tiie strikers was in conference with
the firm yesterday, and an agreement will
in ail probability be reached this morning.
At Corlies, Chapman & Drake's factory
on Eagle street, eighteen cabinetmakers
have been working at an average wage of
$2. Yesterday they informed the super- j
intendent that they had struck for nine
hours at ten hours' pay and were imme
diately told to get their tool chests out with
them. As payment was refused until the
order was complied with, several
drays were loaded up during
the afternoon and the men were all paid
off. The superintendent said they could
easily do without help in that line for two
months and they could get all the help they
wanted, as applications for work were
made every day.

A Magnificent Display in Yesterday
Outside of the policemen who were on
duty and the workers on the morning news
papers who were wending their way home
after the night's labor, there were but few
people who'witnessed the brilliant electrical
phenomenon in the heavens at an early
hour yesterday morning which has never
been surpassed for beauty and grandeur.
About 2:30 a flush of light resembling the
reflection on the sky from a burning build
ing, was seen on the edge of the western
horizon. It gradually spread and bright
ened until in the course of a half hour the
whole sky seemed to be a blaze of light and
a sea of lire. It was a magnliicent sight and
one never to be forgotten by those who
beheld it. About 3 o'clock the fiery waves
which seemed to have been playing across
the sky in a billowy motion, began to roll
together m folds until at last they presented
the appearance of a long scroll. Then the
scroll assumed a more solid shape,
looking like a band of heated iron stretch
ing from a point in the heavens near the
zenith down to the brim of the western
horizon. Pron the band of golden flame
there occasionally shot forth streams of
light to the right and to the left. As grad
ually as it came, did the phenomena fade
away. From a band of flaming lire it
melted down until it presented the appear
ance of a crack in the floor of the
celestial city through which the light of
glory was streaming. By decrees it grew
dimmer and dimmer until at last it twinkled
away beyond the stretch of mortal vision,
and the few persons who had been the for
tunate observers of the grand spectacle felt
that the gates of heaven had been closed
when the phenomena disappeared. The
time of duration of this celestial pyrotech
nical display was nearly one hour.

Second Day of the (.rand L>odgrc—
The second session of the. Grand Lodge
A. O. U. W. convened yesterday. The
day was mainly devoted to routine business.
Twelve additional delegates reported.
Three hundred dollars were voted for the
relief of the cyclone sufferers at Sauk
Rapids, and 3250 was appropriated for the
entertainment of the supreme lodge, which
will meet in Minneapolis in June. The
subordinate lodges of this jurisdiction have
appropriated 500 for the same purpose,
it was resolved that former members of the
seceding lodges of lowa who seek ad
mission into the new lodges of Dakota
should not be admitted until they, had paid
the assessment imposed at the time of the
secession. This trouble dates from the
time of the last yellow fever epidemic in
the South, when the supreme lodge levied
assessments on all lodges for the benefit of
the sufferers. The majority of the lodges
in lowa refused to pay the assessments,
and have since been excluded from the order.
Rochester was designated as the place of
holding the next meeting. In the matter
of an appeal of J. N. Colin from a decision
of his lodge in St. Paul, refusing sick ben
efits for two weeks, the appeal was sus
tained and $10 were ordered paid by the
local lodge. E. A. Basset of Minneapolis
was dismissed recently by his lodge, and on
appeal the action of the subordinate lodge

The Turners' society held a meeting last
night, the principal business- coming before
the body being the disposition of the case of
Adolph Witt, deputy treasurer of the associa
tion and janitor of the building. Witt had
previously been charged with appropriating!
about S:JOO of the Turners' money, which lie |
had collect from various members. At a
former meeting he was given until last night j
to square accounts or take the alternative of i
prosecution. it was decided not to proceed
to extreme measures with Witt, but to rely
on the professions he makes of an intention
to settle the amount. The subject
was presented and discussed of
rebuilding the stage in Turner hall and en
larging it, and also increase the size of the
gymnasium. There are now four classes of
boys and girls with a total membership of
139. The present room is too small and there
is likewise a demand for more apparatus, j
The improvements were decided upon.
Considered by ths Board.
At a meeting of the board of public works j
last night, the engineer estimated the cost of
paving and curbing Seventh street, from the !
east end of the bridge to Hope street, at $24,
--210, $16,800 of which would be paid by assess
ment and 87,410 by the street ear company.
Should the board pave their portion
of the street with stone the
expense would be (5,000 additional.
The paving of Summit avenue came up and
was objected to on theground that a majority
of the property owners' names were not on
the petition. The opinion was advanced that
there was a scheme in the proposed improve
ment aud more of it than appeared on the
Surface. There was a suspicion that changes
of grade were to be made sub rosa and not
legally. The board decided to move cau
tiously and referred the potition to the mem

A POSSIBLE CONTEST.
Alleged Reasons Why Aid. Long May
Contest the Seventh Ward Al-
The Law to Govern the Oase if Students
Voted Laid Down by Con
Statements of Two of the Election
Judges that They Knew of
Mr. Long "Will Secure .Legal Advice
Before Asking lor an In
The Election-Day Story.
There is possibility of a contest over the
Seventh ward election. Aid. Long, who
lost the election by forty-two votes, charges
the judges at llaniline and Merriam Park
with conspiring against him, and claims
that the students of St. Thomas college at
JMerriam Park were allowed to vote, when
it was well known that they had no right
to do so. The number of students who
cast their ballots is fixed at thirty,
and half as many voted at Ham
line. These students, it is claimed,
went in a body against Long, who,
had it not been for their votes, claims
that he would have been elected by a small
majority. At the Minnesota Transfer stock
yards, Daniel Sullivan, who it was ex
pected would lend his influence to Long,
turned on him and worked for Kobbius,
taking the stock yard votes with him.
Up to yesterday morning the charges of
fraud in the Seventh ward, and rumors of
the probability that Long would contest
Bobbins' seat in the council, had ' come
from Long men, To corroborate the
rumors, a Globe representative called on
Mr. Long yesterday at his office, and in
terrogated him regarding the illegality of
the election in his ward. He said:
MR. LONG'S STATEMENT.
They worked against me at Hauiline, St. An
thony Park and Merriam Park. At St. An
thony Park the Republican notaries refused
to swear in Democratic votes, and a strong
effort was made to keep Long men from cast
ing their ballots. At Hatnline, Hnmline stu
dents were allowed to vote, as were students
of St. Thomas at Mcrriain Park. I under
stand that this is illegal. I was told that a
sick man drove up at Merriam Park after the
polls closed, and one of the judges went to
the wagon, got his vote, unlocked the ballot
box and dropped the ballot in. 1 also heard
that Robbius men were allowed
to enter the room where the judges
were and vote, without being sworn in. I
don't think the election was straight. I don't
think I have been treated right. In the first
place I understood when I was elected last
spring that my term was for two years, but
City Attorney Murray decided against it. I
was pushed into the field without being able
to make preparations for the fight that I
should have made, had. I known that I was
elected for only one year. 1 got a cold deal
all around. My friends now want me to con
test the election. Whether I shall or not I
haven't yet decided. I shall think the matter
over a couple of days and get legal advice
before I make any move."
Thus far it seems anything but certain
that Mr. Long will make the contest, but
the feeling outside among his friends is
strongly In favor of his making the contest
on the ground that the votes cast by the
students at both Hamline and Merriam
Park were illegal.
THE LAW IX THE CASE.
Gen. John B. Sanborn was interviewed
regarding the law concerning the right of
students to vote.
"The law." he said, "cannot be mis
understood on the point of student voters.
In the constitution of the state there is the
No person shall be deemed to have lost a
residence while employed in the service of the
United States, nor while employed upon the
waters of this state, nor while a student at
any seminary of learning.
"This settles the question, for the relation
is a reciprocal one. If a student cannot
lose a residence he cannot gain one, for if
he could he would have two residences at
the same time, which is not possible Under
the law. As to the case at Merriam Park,
it is simply one of fact. If students voted
there who are living there simply as
students, then there was an illegality. An
investigation into the facts in the case
would easily show the exact grounds for a
THE JUDGES' STORY.
The reporter visited Merriam Park and
called at St. Thomas college for the purpose
of interviewing Father O'Gonnan, who, it
is charged, instructed the students to vote
for Bobbins. Father O'Gorman could not
be seen yesterday afternoon, and Thomas
Prince and W. E. Chamberlain, who acted
in the capacity of judges, were next seen.
Mr. Chamberlain is a merchant at Merriam
Park, and in connection with his grocery
trade, conducts the affairs of theP ark post
office. He was found at his desk and ex
pressed considerable surprise that the
judges had been charged with fraud. When
interviewed he said:
I'm not afraid of an investigation. I can
swear, as far as 1 inn concerned personally,
that I did not know that a man voted who had
not a right to. The students of St. Thomas
college, to the number of twenty-five or
thirty, voted. H. W. Topping, who was the
first representative in the city council that
this ward ever had, stood in this room with the
judges, and as the students came up chal
lenged their votes, and when asked what he
did it for, replied, with :i smile, that he might'
possibly catch one on the fly. There was only
one of these students on whom Mr. Topping 1
refused to withdraw his challenge, and he was
sworn in. The majority of the students voted
for Robbins. but several of them voted for
Long. In regard to the men voting in the
room where the judues were, the first five
men who came to the polls came into the
judges' room, presented their allidavlts and
voted. Mr. Topping, who was present,
objected to others doing the same and the five
men were sent out of the room and the doc-r
locked. No others were allowed inside. The
sick man who drove up and had his ballot
placed in the box was A. J. Douglas, an old
and respected citizen, who has lived here for
years, lie drove up close to ho , balloting
window and said he wanted to vote, but was
suffering from inflammatory rheumatism and
was unable to get out of his wagon. I asked
the judges if they had any objection to my
taking his vote and placing it iv the box,
and they said they had not. I went to the
wagon, took Mr. Douglas' ballot, and carry
ing it inside in full view of the other judges,
placed it m the box. The charge that the
vote was cast after the box was closed is ab
solutely false. It was just 5:27 o'clock when
Mr. Douglas drove up, and the box
was kept open fully a minute after
I placed the ballot ■in it. I thought
up to the last minute that Mr. Long was
elected, and was surprised when I heard that
he was beaten. I'm a Republican, and voted
for Mr. Long last spring. Personally I've got
nothing against the man, but we wanted a
man in the council who was not a supporter
of saloons and bawdy houses, aud Mr. Long
has supported this element. The disgusting
sight that Merriam Park citizens are com
pelled to witness at times, when the low
women and sports of St. Paul and Minneapo
lis drive out here, are enough to sicken any
decent man. If we had no saloons here there
would be no attraction for these people. As
I said before, I am not afraid of an investiga
tion, as, to my knowledge, no fraud was per
petrated here. If the students of St. Thomas
had no right to vole it is something that I
know nothing about.
:;[■ CLAIMS INNOCENCE.
Thomas Prince, another judge, said:
lam neither for nor against Long. 1 acted
asjuds.eat this election, and did it impar
tially and without knowledge of committing
fraud. The students of St. Thomas voted, I
and I thought they had a right to, as they
have been at the college, the majority of
them, for a year and more, and were known
to all the judges. Mr. Long's friends sent
out a lot of ward strikers to work for him
here, and they tried to intimidate the men,
but he was informed that it wouldn't work.
One of them, a big, burly fellow, struck at
one of our citizens but luckily didn't hit him.
The same man went to Hamline, and 1 heard,
began the same work there, and was badly
pounded. If they want to investigate the
matter for fraud, let them do it. I'm not
.A. C. "Woodruff, a Democrat, who run
against Long last spring and was defeated,
was seen and. corroborated the statement
of Mr. Prince regarding the attempt at
intimidation. He said he was at the polls
all day and saw nothing to indicate that
there was fraud being practiced. These
gentlemen all made straightforward state
ments and coincided with each other per
fectly. They showed no signs of malice
towards Mr. Long, but, on the contrary,
seemed to be , friendly disposed towards
him, but : objected to the suppoit they,
claimed he had given to the saloons in that
part of the city. Just what the outcome of
the trouble will be is hard to conjecture
just at present.

Neither New Nor Startling;.
The New York Graphic tells of an island
near St. Paul called "Paradise island," where
there is not a single saloon and never has
been. The fact is tolerably interesting, but
is not startling-. There are a large number of
islands in the Mississippi upon which no sa
loon has ever been established — and where no
people have ever lived.
