SELLING ON SUNDAY.
The Hennepin County Grand Jury Holds
a Little Surprise Party "With Sa
About a Gross of Them Indicted for Selling
Stimulants on Last Sun
Tbe Board of Trade Takes Action in
tbe Matter of a Police Com
Tbe Grand Jury Slakes It Interest
ins For Certain Venders of Stim
The Hennepin county grand jury reassem
bled yesterday morning and immediately went
into '-executive session." Large numbers of
persons went before them, and, after re
maining an hour or so, came away wearing a
face drawn long with seriousness and mys
tery. Shortly after noon a largo number of
saloonkeepers gathered in the district court
room, and the number kept growing until at
least one hundred and fifty were present. All
of them had been arrested on bench war
rants, charging them with selling liquor or
cigars on Sunday. None of then* appeared to |
regard the matter in a very serious light, and
jokes at the expense of each other were
freely cracked. Clerk Davenport was busy
making out indictments and did not put in an
appearance in the big room until after 1
o'clock. Judge Young was on the bench, and
numerous deputy sheriffs were scattered
around the room. The men under indict
ment began to crowd around the clerk's desk,
and Deputy Sheriff James Ege was obliged to
6bout more than once:
"Sit down, gentlemen, sit down. Tour
turn will come soon enough, and then you
can come to the froi * and see what is going
Obedient to his command the men took
seats and waited with smiling faces the time
when they could step to the desk and listen
to the charge against them. Richard Dun
nington was the first one called. He stepped
up, heard the indictment read, and pleaded
not guilty. This set the vast audience in a
roar, which was with difficulty checked. The
reading of iodictm-nts was then waived and
the following persons stepped up and pleaded
not guilty to selling liquor last Sunday:

It was a great study to watch the men
plead. There were the men who could not
talk Eogllsh.and who bad to plead through an
interpreter; men whose white hands and del
isately tinted cheeks would have better
graced a drawing room than a saloon bar, men
who said "not guilty" in a tough manner,aud
men who pleaded in a voice that "trembled
like a leaf." Nearly ail pleaded not guilty,
and as most of them were property owners,
the« were released on their own recognizan
ces. Martin Ludwig caused a grim smile to
play for a moment on the face of Judge
Young, by replying, when asked If he was
"I don't know whether lam guilty or not
until after I see my attorney. I will let you
In some cases the wrong man had
been arrested, and the look of bewil
derment that settled down upon his
face when asked whether he was guilty
or not was comical to behold. It was
6 o'clock when Clerk Davenport ceased
to call next. Then Judge Young descended
from his seat, heaved a sigh and disappeared
iuto his room.
It was learned that these indictments are
not all of tho kind that are out, and that to
day a large number more of saloonkeepers
will be brought into court. The offense
charged in the indictment was committed,
when W. W. Cool, Joseph C. St. Dennis, P. A.
Smith and E. Anderson went around the city
collecting evidence. In nearly every case a
glass of whiskey or beer was purchased, al
though one or two of the prisoners were
charged with selling cigars. Iv some manner
some of the saloon men had learned that such
action was going to be taken Sunday, and
cumbers of saloons were closed so tightly
that not even a ray oi sunlight secured an
entrance. These men are congratulating
themselves on their fortunate escape.
As a rule the saloon men are indignant at
these indictments and declare that the mat
ter will not stop here. Said one of them;
"You can just count on it that wo are not
going to sit still now and see every other place
of business open on Sundays. If we are to be
obliged to close, we will see to it that the
theaters, cigar and fruit stores, news stands,
furnishing stores, bath houses and other
places of business are closed also. We are
willing to close if they will, but the grand
jury will find out that if they close one place
they will have to close all."
The grand jury reported shortly before 5
o'clock last night, and banded in to Judge
Young about a bushel basket full of papers,
among them several hundred indictments
against various persons. It is extremely
probable that the names of all proprietors of
the various gambling houses in the city are
mentioned in these indictments, as well as
the keepers of blind pigs, against whom con
siderable evidence has beeu taken. Every
one connected with the grand jury in any
manner was as dumb as an oyster last even
ing, and all the information that could be de
rived from any one around tbe court house
conld be put in one line of small type. As
soon as Judge Young received the papers
submitted to him, ho discharged the jury
until Jan. 24, when it will meet for the last
The keepers of the houses of ill fame in
dicted last week, were araigned before Judge
Young yesterday morning, when six of them
pleaded not guilty and had their cases set for
Dec. 22 and 23. IdaDorseyand Mary Tibbs
gave notice that on Wednesday they would
endeavor to have the indictments against
them quashed. Mary Redding, indicted for
selling liquor without a license, pleaded not
guilty to the charge, aud will be tried soon.
THE BOARD DOES IT.
Everything Fixed for a Police Com
mission for Miniinapolis.
About a dozen members of the board of
trade met last night and decided that the city
Should have a police commission; not only
this, but decided just how the board should
be composed and how appointed. The idea
was incorrectly circulated that the meeting
was to have been public and open, whereas it
was only a beard meeting, adjourned from
Monday, to complete the work begun. Judge
Bassett opposed the Idea and in his argument
knocked out the entire board, while Aid.
L'Herault, when called on, walked roughshod
over the ruius. When it adjourned on Mon
day. the board bad decid ed that the people
should have a police commission of five mem
bers, of whom no two should belong to the
same political party: the only point unfinished
•was how they should be appointed.
There were those who favored their appoint
ment by the governor, by the mayor and by
the judges of the district court, each of
which plans had its lriends. Gov. Pillsbury
read a tabulated plan, showing the systems
in vogue in other cities, and J. T. Wymau
talked about the necessity for good govern
ment. Judge Bassett said he did not care
enough for political parties to walk across
the ro< *■ for either, but he believed in having
the appointments made in such a manner that
If unsatisfactory the people could speedily
pet back at the appointing power through
the polls. Finally it was decided that the
judges should do the appointing. This prac
tically ends it. as far as the board is con
cerned, except that the committee will report
*. bill containing these provisions.
What some of the members said, crystal
lized, would be as follows:
J. B. Bassett lt would be ridiculous to ask
for a police commission until we decide just
what its duties shall be. How would it strike
you to have a commission appointed under a
law which would give them duties that we
did not iutend? So far as I know, the various
forces of police have been quite c fficient.
though there may have been a mayor or so
who has not done all he might have done.
How would it do to elect the mayor every
year, and then if we did not like him we
could fire him out.
J. T. Wymau Four men are better than
one, and I want to see a commssion com
posed of four men. They will be less liable
to be wrong. Under a commission we will
Jiave no more of tbis making a foot Lall of
the police force.
John DeLaittre— very reason why the
police commissioners should be appointed by
the Judges is because the judges are the ex
ponents of the law and order we are aim
Aid. L'Herault— l fail to see where any
good will be accomplished by such a omrais
gion as you propose. It would merely create
pew offices for somebody to fill. If you must
bave a commission, make the commissioners
elected by and responsible to the people. It
Is better, however, to allow the mayor to ap
point the police force, and you then have a
responsible head. '/ * V;
John DeLaittre— lt isn't going to hurt four
judges to appoint one police commissioner
H. A. Towne— l am still in favor of the ap
pointment by the Judges, and do not think it
will degrade their office.
A MORS IMPORTANT MATTER
was brought up when, at the conclusion ' of
this non-partisan movement, Gov. Pillsbury
said there should be a change in the street
commissioner system. Ho inveighed against
the miserable streets at present aud believed
the mayor should have more authority in this
direction. A. B. Barton suggested a board
of public works and John De Laittre backed
up all that had been said and favored a more
metropolitan plan. The matter was finally
referred for report and recommendation.
TOOK A TC.UBLE.
Tbe Council Committee on Gas Be*
ports in Favor of tbe Edison Elec
The joint council committees on ordinance
and gas met yesterday afternoon and dis
cussed the ordinance granting the Edison
Electric Light company a franchise. The or
dinance, which had previously been submitted
to the city attorney, was on the whole found
to be satisfactory. The ordinance provides
for an underground system, it being specified
that the city shall not be held liable for acci
dents. Unless a plant, which must conform
to grade, sufficient to furnish 1,200-horse
power be put in within one year,
the franchise is to be canceled.
The power to compel the company to make
extensions is subject to the provisos that the
company shall not be compelled to extend its
system to such an extent as to exhaust the
power of its stations, nor to make extensions
until a sufficient number of property owners
shall enter into a contract to use 2.400 six
teen-candle power lamps. When such a peti
tion and contract shall have been presented
the council may order extensions. The com
pany is alse not compelled to put in a new
circuit for a distance of more than four
blocks in any street that has not been graded.
The charges of the company are not to ex
ceed $1 to $2.30 per month for lamps ranging
from ten to thirty-two candle power burning
to 9:30 p. m.; $1.50 to $3.25 for lamps ranging
from ten to tbirty-two candlo power which
bum to midnight, and $2 to $5 for lamps
ranging from ten to thirty-two candle power
for lights which burn all night.
Aid. Pratt raised most of the objections to
the ordinance, but S. J. Cochrane, the repre
sentative of tho company, met him fully by
offering to submit to any requirements that
could be considered as even approximately
just, .finally it was decided to nx tne pen
alty. in case the company should fail to make
the extensions asked, at forfeiture of the
franchise, and then the committee decided to
submit the ordinance to the council with the
recommendation that it be passed.
ORGANIZED AND OFFICERED
The Newsboys' Home in Great Shape
The Newsboys' Home association met yes
terday with a good attendance. The articles
of incorporation were read, after which a
committee of three was appointed to nomi
nate the twenty-one directors called for by
the constitution. While the committee was
out Dr. Martha Ripley was introduced to the
association. She had heard of the remark
able success of the home in securing
furniture, and thinking they might
be over-blessed came to ask that
any surplus furniture or furnishings they
might have would be given to the newly es
tablished Maternity hospital. She briefly ex
plained the scope and purpose of this new
charity and made a plea in its behalf. The
committee reported the following names for
directors and their terms were fixed by lot:
For one year— A J. Condit. C. B. Pillsbury,
George H. Rust, >". F. Oriswo'd, Mrs. S. Van
Cleve, Mrs. C. D. Foss, Mrs. S. H. Baker. v.

The board of directors elected the following
officers: President, N. F. Griswold; vice
presidents, Mrs. Farr and Mrs. Washburn;
recording secretary. Dr. C. B. Pillsbury: cor
responding secretary. Miss Nellie Prior;
troasu rer, George H. Rust.
A committee was appointed to take charge
of the home and make necessary rules to be
in force until the association could receive
the report of its committee on by-laws and
rules. A committee of arrangements for the
athletic exhibition to be given for tbe benefit
of the home at Washington link next Friday
evening, was named, consisting of Messrs.
Rust and Pillsbury and Mesdames Farr, Don
aldson aud Guile. Mrs. Farr was authorized
to go to Chicago and carefully examine the
method of conducting uewsboys' homes in
that city, and to report at the next meeting
of the association, which which will be held
at the residence of Mrs. T. B. Walker, two
weeks from yesterday. "•
COT WHAT THEY ASK.
The Twentieth Aveuue Bridge and
the Sew Mar Wet Projects.
Engineer Rinker yesterday submitted to the
council committee on roads and bridges,
plans for the new bridge over the Mississippi
river at Twentieth avenue north, which were
accepted. The plans provide for a Pratt
truss through bridge, to cost $100,000, which
provides for a thirty-six-foot roadway in the
clear with six-foot sidewalk* on either side.
Its length is 800 feet, and it is to be supported
by three piers on pile foundations, and two
abutments. The council will, doubtless, ap
prove the committee's recommendation, and
the legislature will be asked to authorize the
issuance of the necessary bonds.
The committoe on markets met and decided
to grant Harlan Gale's request for an exten
sion of time, which gives him until June next
to select a site for a new market house, and
one year thereafter in which to build.
THE RINK DID NOT PAY,
And the Lessees Relinquished Pos
session at a Cost of 8628.
The case of Hans C. Peterson against John
Speedy and John C. Barton, to recover
$1,696.50, was tried before Judge Young yes
terday, and a decision awarding the plaintiff
$62S returned. The case had its origin in the
roller-skating fever, which was epidemic here
last year. On Sept. 9, 1886, the defendants
rented of Mr. Peterson the Oak Lake skating
rink, with all the skates, etc. They were to
have possession of the rink until June 1, and
to pay for the use of it $1,700 in installments
of $200. On Dec. 15 deleueants wanted to
give up the rink, it not paying as well as they
had anticipated it would. This Mr. Peterson
relused to allow them to do. unless he could
lease the premises to some one else. On this
condition the defendants were allowed to re
linquish possession, but all the money Mr.
Peterson made out of it ud to June 1 was
$100. He also alleged that tbe defendants
refused to pay for the skates that were
broken during the time they were in posses
sion of the rink.
THEY WANT A BRIDGE
For South Minneapolis, but Don't
Want the Court House Moved.
Tollefsen's hall was filled last night with
gentlemen iuterestod in the proposed Frank
lin avenue bridge. W. K. Hicks presided and
F. S. McDonald acted as secretary. It was
said that if tbe bridge is built in line with the
avenue it will cross the river diagonally,
being 1,700 feet long; if It cross the channel
at right angles the length will be about 1,100
feet and the cost not over $125,000.
Earnest speeches advocating the building of
the bridu-e were warmly received. All the
members of the legislature from this district
were heard from in person or by proxy, and
all promised hearty support of the measure,
except one, and he will not oppose it. A com
mittee of fifteen was named, who will present
the matter to the legislature and have it in
charge. They are Messrs. Jacob Stoft, J. H.
Paul. John Lally. F. M. Nye. J. 11. Perry, F.
S. McDonald, William Regan, F. C.'Penny,
Andrew Tollefsen, J. L. Johnson, D. T. Col
lier. J. D. Muldoon, E. Farnsworth, Jr., B. B.
Carrol, James Ungerman. Resolutions were
adopted reciting the promise of our last leg
islative . delegation that this year a bridge
should be built at Franklin avenue, and
earnestly requesting the members from this
district to use all their influence to secure
the necessary legislation. The meeting then
turned its attention to matters of public
economy, and after a spirited speech, passed
the following resolution: , .',: . ..'j
Resolved, That it is the sense of this meet
ing that any attempt looking toward the re
moval of the court house from its present
site would De adding a large and unnecessary
tax upon the people, and that the members
of the legislature from the Twenty-ninth
district are requested to oppose any .legisla
tion asked for that purpose.
The question of special tax assessments
was also vigorously discussed, sentiment
seeming to favor the Omaha plan of collec
tion, as explained by Mr. Shuler, though no
formal resolutions were presented. KJ] / , j ".',

THE PAUL ST FATHERS.
Tbe Close of a V try Successful ""lis
sion in M. nneapoiis.
The mission which was given last week by
the Paulist fathers at the Church of St. An
thony, of Padua, was brought to a close Mon
day evening in tho presence of a large audi
ence, which occupied every inch of sitting
and standing room. From here the reverend
fathers go to St. Paul, where they will con
tinue the work they are engaged in at the
church of St. Mary's, of which Rev. Father
Caillet is pastor. Outside of the Catholic
church not one person in ten understands
these missions, and the question is frequently
asked, "What is a mission?" The word mis
sion means a duty on which one is sent, and
this is simuly what is meant by a mission in
connection with the church. The mis
sionaries, as theso Paulist fathers are
called, are sent out to preach the word
of God, explain and make ' clear
points of religion, give instruction on matters
pertaining to the church aud to endeavor to
bring back those who are in dauger of being
led away from the straight path, or who
have grown lukewarm. These missions are
held at different churches about once every
ten years. Services are held morning and
eveuing. Considering the lanre attendance
by which the fathers have been greeted in
Minneapolis the past week, the great interest
evinced by the people and the fact that over
six hundred persons took the total abstinence
pledge in the parish of St. Anthony of Padua
alone, the missionaries havo good reason for
expressing themselves as pleased with the
success of their labors.
A PEST HOUSE NECESSARY,
And Judge Young Says Sonic One
must Suffer lt.
In July last Joseph Hamilton, L. Tillany,
Chris Hanky, George Earhardt, A. W. Sweet,
O. K. Earle, George S. Wolsey, B. S. Bohney,
G. R. Newcomb. Eugene Wetherhead, George
E. Goodrich, John Baston, F. O. Baston, M.
Prat, Frank Kelley, D. J. Falvey, Henry Mc-
Ginty, Jeremiah Quinn, C. E. Brown and
Calvin G. Goodrich commenced an action in
the district court against the city for an in
junction against the operating of tho pest
house, on the ground that it injured their
property. Last Saturday a demurrer to tho
complaint was made by the city attorney,
who claimed that the plaintiffs did not state
facts sufficient to warrant the suit. Judge
Young filed a decision in the matter yesterday
sustaining the demurrer. He said in his de
cision: "The present occupation of the
defendants' property certainly does uot
constitute a nuisance with either the
general or special, nor is thero any allega
tion in tho complaint that there will be
any sucn occupancy at any definite time in
the future. As to interference with the com
fortable enjoyment of life or property on the
part the plaintiffs, it is alleged that the
land of tbe plaintiffs is valuable for the pur
pose of platting, or that it would be so but
for the acts of the defendants. This effect
complained of does not bring tho building
within the common law as a statutory defini
tion of a uuisance. A large portion of the
property is situated quite a distance from the
pest houses; so far that it is impossible to
conceive how the building occupied contin
ually would endanger the health or life of the
occupants. It may In this connection be
proper to say that under the defendants'
charter the city has the right and it is. its
implied duty to maintain a building in such
near proximity to the city as to be available
in which to place people suffering from con
tagious diseases. It is necessary for the
lives and health of the public generally. As
the building must be situated somewhere, it
is impossible that it shall not be near some
body's property, where the c orporatlon is
not so fortunate as to own all the land ad
joining the tract where the building is

DENTIAL CIRCULAR MAILED TO ANY LADY SENDING ADDBESS

Mr. T. H. Gafford. of Cnurch Hill, Md., is' so
thankful for the restoration of his wife to com
plete health, that he is willing to certify to the
fact and manner of her cure. To Mrs. Lydia E.
Pinkham: Th ; s Is to certify to the grand effects of
your Vegetable Compound. My wife was suffer
ing from a terrible disease which seemed to b affle
the skill of the best medical men. She was in a
poor, languid, depressed, nervous condition. We
finally concluded to try your Vegetable Com
pound, and to our great surprise the half of one
bottle had not been taken before there seemed to
be a thorough change in her whole condition, and
now to-day she is in good health and entirely re
lieved from all former depressed feelings. •
T. H. GAFFORD and wife.
••Blessed Art Thou Above all
Some of the expressions of gratitude for the
physical regeneration wrought by Mrs. Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound read like the re
joicings of converts after a religious revival. It
brings Salvation to the body. A lady in Franklin
Parish, La., writes: "I tried one bottle of your
Compound for Prolapsus Uteri and Leucorrhea.
I never had anything in my life that did me as
much good. I was hardly able to walk about with
out difficulty. I could not step upon anything with
out pain. When I think how much good that one
bottle did me, I feel as if I could fall 1 on my
knees to you and say: Blessed art thou above all
others, for thou art one of the greatest ; benefac
tors that woman ever had." '^^^SLmm%%%mmm%

Say, Charlie ! Where did you drop on to that
new suit? •
You like it, do you Jim?* It is quite taking, I
think myself, this is one of the "One-third off "
suits, at the UTK, j
Oh! by cracky, if that a clipper. Did you |
say Charlie it only cost $6? ; !
That's all, Jim, hope to squeal, the original
price was $9. One-third of nine is three- That
deducted from $9 leaves just $6. I did the fig
uring myself. You had better go down, Jim, /
and get one before they are all gone; you see
they only have one or two of a kind; they are odd \
suits, but you can find most every size from 4 ]
to 12 years; they are all out on one counter, >
And you ought to see the Odd Overcoats they i
are selling the same way. "One-third off" at ■
