Facts Which Show Mayor Ames to Have Acted Well. The Minneapolis party which accom panied Mayor Ames and family to Da kota, where his son and Miss Jessie Bryant were married, returned yester day and the "elopement" was explained. There are certain facts in connection with the history of the Bryant family wliich need not be paraded before the public, but it is sufficient to say that Mayor .Ames not only did right, but did nobly, in the part he took. Seen last night, he said: 1 am exceedingly sorry that any publicity has been fiven this matter, as it is entirely a family affair, but so long as it has gotten into tlie papers a plain statement of the facts should lie made. My part of it was done simply to save the health, if not the life, of the voting girl. For $8 a week she has been toiling her life away at the court house, un dermining her constitution, and then return ing home to do household work that was im posed upon her. Out of this *s< a week which she earned she has never retained enough to clothe herself decently, and my ton, conveying these facts to me. has been allowed for several mouths, since they were affianced, to temporarily supply the want. Seeing her gradually but certainly going into a decline from the effects of over wort: and general prostration, they decided upon the step that was taken yesterday, and mv wife and myself acquiescing thereto. James Bryant, her father, was mv warm personal friend from his boyhood to bis death, and the mother's wish, that she should be given away by a veteran, in accordance with her father's desire, has been carried out to the letter, as 1 not only gave her away but accepted her into my family. She is a noble and sweet little woman, and will make my sou an excellent wife. A lady who claims to know the inner history of the Ames-Bryant wooing says says the purported statement of James Bryant in last evening's duplicate, wasn't in all respects true; that instead of Mrs. Bryant being an object of char ity, her husband left her some 87.000 in stock in the Loan and Trust Title In surance company, besides a residence worth 56,000 or 18,000, with some ?8.000 incumbrance. She further says that while Jessie has nearly worked her fingers off in the register of deeds' of fice, she is the only one of the family who lias labored to any extent; and that Mrs. Bryant first gave her consent to the wedding, but withdrew it because the Ames family was averse to the style of wedding she desired, which included not only a public display in some large hall, "the daughter of the regiment," as she calls her, being given away by the "Old First." but a banquet, the like of whicii the city has not known since the Heinriehs-Mueller wedding at old Harinonia hall, where Hairy Sidle and Mrs. Kerzman led in the mazy waltz. The doctor is said to have figured the proposed expense at some $10,000 and respectfully declined. Then Mrs. Bryant forbade her present son-in-law over to darken her door, and the natural result followed. MASTERLY INACTIVITY Seems to Characterize the Move ments of the Immortal P. C. The police commissioners are now seeking to vent their rage and chagrin over the outcome of the Quinlan ease by visiting their wrath upou the heads of the lock-up attaches, whom they are trying to make scapegoats of by making them appear responsible for Franklin's escape. Matt Brass and Charles Kingsley. jailers, and C. W. Curtis-, the patrol driver, were yester day notified that they were suspended from service until further notice. This action has produced a feeling of strong indignation among members of the police force and" others acquainted with the circumstances. Matt Brass has been jailor since 1882, and has been a particularly efficient and faithful officer. His suspension seems particu larly cowardly and unjust, while it is curious to learn what responsibility Curtiss could have had for Franklin's escape. The men were given no opportunity to defend themselves, and although they say nothing, feel the injustice of the treatment keenly. As predicted by the Globe yesterday, the commission has not exercised the same eager haste with which it caused the arrest of Detective Quinlan in endeavoring to secure the arrest of Attorney Knittle, who was openly charged in court as being Franklin's probable accessory. That gentlemen, for fear the lynx-eyed in spectors couldn't find him. walked into police headquarters and gave notice that he would appear when wanted. He then went on to deny emphatically that he was either directly or indirectly responsible for Franklin's escape, anil defied any one to prove it. No warrant has yet been issued, and, unless the county attorney will consent to take up the case again, it is alto gether likely that Franklin's accom plice, like Tollefson's murderer, will never he found. Michael Kennedy and J. 11. Leonard have been detailed* as jailers and Pat rick Hurley as patrol driver. THE GAY GROCERS Have a Big Crowd and Big Time at the Lake. There was scarcely a grocery store in town that was not closed yesterday in honor of the grocers' gala day. All the retail stores and commission merchants, every concern except the wholesale stores, and they were compelled to keep open on account of the country trade, shut up shop and ■- nt to the picnic. The crowd was uch larger than was expected th as found neces sary to charter *.. .train. The day was everything tiliti could be desired. When the party arrived at Wayzata. the boats Belle of Jliniietonka and City of St. Louis were wailing, to receive those who wished to go around the lakes, and the remainder went on to Minnetonka beach. . The games were unusually interest ing and attracted general attention and interest. The morning was filled in with a game of base ball, the nines be ing composed of representative grocery men of the North and South Sides. The contest was spirited and many bril liant plays indicated where Manager Foster can secure recruits. The North Siders had piled up 23 to IV for the South Side lads, and each of the vic tors carried or! a box of cigars. In the -afternoon the regular games came off according to the programme. Following is a summary of results: The 100 yards running race was won by Frank Bowers, Ole Olson second and F. N. Olson third. The girls' race was very interesting. Mabel Gjertson took first prize. Annie Shattuck second, Tracy Holly third. J. Daly won the sWt men's race, with E. Sharp second and J. Swanson third. The egg race was exciting. The contestants were ladies ' and each had to carry an egg in a spoon the entire fifty yards. Mrs A. S. Hanson reached the goal first', but she held her egg in the spoon wit's her linger, and so was ruled out. Mrs O. Esse took first prize, Mrs. Cran dall second; the remaining runners fell out of the race. Th- North Minneapolis growers' clerks pulled the South side lads over the line in the tug of war. The ladies' 100 yards dash was the most spirited event of the day. The ladies were - running for a sew ing machine, and they devel oped sprinting abilities of a high or der Mrs. Amelia Peterson will use th I sewing machine. Mrs. Woodruff taking second place and Mrs. Crandall third. An improvised traveling man's race was a jolly number. C. 11. Pankell took first money, A. G. Showers second, A. L. Wellington third, James Mcintosh and T. 11. Frier distanced. In the hop, skip and jump Wesley Neill, the veteran grocer, met with a serio.us accident. In the hop he fell; dislocating his knee and breaking one of the small bones of his leg. The contest, for traveling men only, vaulting with a pole, was won -by C. 11. Parkell, Frank Frier second, CL E. Moore third. The fat man's race, for men of over 200 "pounds, was won by Georee Murphy, F. F. Richards second and N. Cone third. J In the contest for young ladies, throwing the ball, the winner, Miss Nellie Tobie, threw the ball away out of bound, easily defeating the young lady who took second prize, Miss'J. C. JlcCall. The side jump race, in which the contestants were compelled to get down on all fours and jump towards a goal, was won by Ole Eisse. The ladies who ran in the race for a gold watch came prepared aud went in to win. The remaining sports were the tub race and running race. There was con siderable dissatisfaction with the man agement of the grounds. It appears that the committees had drawn up a con tract with Mr. Jlehl, according to which he was to allow no liquor to be sold on the ground. Arrangements had also been made, though not included in the contract, according to which the picnick ers were to be allowed to sell lemonade and candies upon the grounds. But. when the party arrived there they were not only not allowed to sell the stock they had brought with them, but liquor was sold in open violation of the contract and to the great disgust of ev eryone. The single boat race was won by A. J. Leland lirst and T. Thuraldson second. The double boat race was won by Por ter Bros. The most amusing feature of the day was the tilting ou the water, which was won by O. Esse over H. P. Chistopher. Each man was provided with a long i pole, on the end of which were fixed | rubber balls. With these, standing in the rear of boats, they endeavored to knock each other into the water. This contest was hotly contested for three quarters of an hour. NOW THE AFTER-CLAP. Numerous Damage and Criminal Actions by Quinlan and Davis. The end of the Quinlan prosecution imbroglio is not yet. In fact the piece de resistance is still to come. The de tective does not propose to rest quietly beneath the insult and injury which have been constantly heaped upon him and proposes, OB the contrary, to carry the war into Africa. He has retained Arthur N. Jordan as attorney to con duct a series of damage suits before the courts. Mr Jordan said yesterday: "Yes, I have been retained by Detect ive Quinlan, and we will shortly file papers in the first action. 1 say first, because there will be a series of them. Superintendent Jacop Hem, will be the first defendant and the papers will be ready tomorrow. If it can be shown, as we believe it can, that the police commissioners were the instigators of the complaint, the next suit will be against them and then the Tribune will come in for its share in a libel suit, and it is possible the action will be for criminal libel. We propose to see whether any man any set of men and newspapers, for the mere gratifaction of personal malice, can subject an officer, in the discharge of his duties, to such indignities as have been heaped on Quinlan." County Attorney Davis also wears a sinster smile that" bodes evil to some body. That astute prosecutor is not satisfied with the terrible lambasting he gave the police commission on Wednes day, but is looking for gore .in another direction. He was grossly and need lessly insulted by the Tribune and his friends -ay he will personally conduct a suit against it. He was asked, while in court, on Wednesday: "1 suppose you will have a damage suit against the Tribune?" "No, it will be a criminal actions was his response. There is music in the air. COMING AT LAST. Underground Conduits for Elec tric Wires. D. A. Dorsett, vice president and general manager of the National Sub way company, appeared before the special council committee consisting of Aid. Cooley, Gibson, Garvey and Bar rows, yesterday morning, and ex plained his company's system of underground conduits for telegraph and telephone wires. The conduits, lie said, are laid thirty inches deep, and are composed of a combina tion of asphalt and silicon, wliich is both non-absorbent and insulating, be ing impervious to both frost and water. The electric light and heavy current wires are placed in a separate conduit, thus removing any element of danger, and the difficulties result ing from induction. The system has been successfully tried in New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, and Detroit. In reply to inquiries Mr. Dorsett stated that the pavement would be replaced as fast as the conduit could be laid, thus preventing the tearing up of streets, as is done in laying sewers, gas and water pipe. His company would be willing to cover the entire ter ritory embraced in the conduit system, and go to work under present ordinance j although he preferred to lirst receive the approval of the council. Be did not think a compelling ordinance neces, sary, as he felt certain the telegraph telephone and electric light companies would be more than willing to get their wires under ground. In the informal discussion which fol lowed Chief Stetson, and '/.. T. Morri son, superintendent of the fire depart ment telegraph, both seemed to think that the condint system would work successfully, and that . the removal of telegraph wires would greatly facilitate the work of the lire department j T. S. King, of the Brush Electric Light | company, who was present, raised some objections. The rental of two ducts J would cost about £1,000 per mile a year, I and the cost of running wires on poles as at present is almost nominal. | He advised, if a franchise was granted that it should not be an ; exclusive one. It was suggested that j tie' city should have free, rental for the | fire anil police wires, and Mr. Dorsett agreed to this. With this understanding ! the committee agreed to pass an ordi- ! nance providing that permission be granted to the National Subway com pany to construct and maintain its sys tem of electrical conduits or subways in the streets and alleys of the city for a term of fifty years: that other compa nies shall use the conduits upon . such ; terms as may agreed upon, anil in : case they cannot agree the terms shall be fixed by arbitration; and that the ! company shall at all times be subject fo the existing city ordinances relative to the use of streets. DOGS FOR A DOLLAR. The Council Amends the Dog Law and Orders I"ss Sidewalks. Twenty-two aldermen answered to roll call yesterday afternoon. The reg ular order of business was taken up. Sackett & Wiggins were granted a spe cial license at |§0 per week, payable in advance, to exhibit a ten-cent tent show in Minneapolis. Aid. E. M. Johnson gave notice that at the next regular meeting he would move to reconsider a resolution passed Aug. 8 locating electric lamps on Chi- j cago avenue, because equally satisfac tory lamps can be placed at 100 per cent I less. When the ordinance committee I was called Aid. Cloutier came to the desk with a large bundle of new laws. j The rules were suspended and the city j dog ordinance was so amended as to permit the dog killer to sell to any one any dog that has been in the pound three days for a dollar, provided the purchaser shows a license from the city clerk. A new pound district, embrac ing all that part .of the city north of Twentieth avenue north and west of the viver, was established, and Michael Broderick was elected pound keeper. Aid. Cooley introduced an ordinance I THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 12, 1887. granting to the National Subway com-, pany the right to lay underground,, in the streets and alleys of the city, all other companies being given permission to use the system, and the city to have free use of the system for its wires. The ordinance was read and laid over under the rules. The greater part of the ses sion was taken up with the passage of sidewalk resolutions, by which 88 stone. £53 wood; 12 asbestine and SO brick side walks were ordered. Clerk Corn man was tired when he had finished reading the 435 sidewalk and divers water main resolutions, all of which passed, and Aid. Hanscom came to his relief just in time to tackle a whole manuscript volume, being an or dinance establishing and designating the grades of the several streets and av enues of the city. The council ad journed to next Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. THE RESERVOIRS OPENED To Brine Water to the Relief of the Flour Mills. In its next issue the Northwestern Miller will review the flour situation as follows: Low water troubled the mills' quite seri ously during the closing half of last week, and as a result the flour output was curtailed to a considerable extent. The week's pro duct was 139,800 averaging 23,200 barrels daily— against 155,440 barrels the previous week and 142,230 barrels for the corresponding time in 1886. The water power is very short again this week, and a few of the mills are able to run anything like full capacity' while stoppages are freouent. This has caused the starting of several en gines, three being iv use at present and an other will be put in service to-morrow. • It is stated that one of the northern reservoirs, holding a large quantity of water, was opened Friday, and a beneficial effect on the river therefrom is expected about Saturday. If some relief should not be secured in this way more engines will doubtless be brought into requisition. The irregular manner in which the mills are running in consequence of poor power makes it difficult to forecast the output of the week: though it can proba bly safely be said that will be lighter than lastweefi. Nineteen mills are making an effort to run, and were it not for being handi capped by low water, the production would be heavy." The flour market is weaker, with a fair demand reported by most millers from the East. There is some inquiry from abroad, but is usually at low prices, and com paratively little flour is being sold for export. The exports of the week fell off somewhat, but were not light. FOUL PLAY FEARED. A Missing Traveling Man Traced in This Direction. The friends of W. W. Sharp, a travel ing man of Erie, Pa., are instituting re searches into his whereabouts and have fears that he has been murdered and robbed in this vicinity. He left home on May 23, and has not been since seen. Ile was traced to Andover, ().. and thence through Chicago toward Minne apolis, where the clue was lost. His wife is heartbroken over his absence and fears the worst. Sharp is described as a man of 170 pounds weight, 5 feet 6 inches in height, with black hair, red dish-brown mustache, dark eyes, and a mole on the right side of the face near the nose. His age was thirty-six years, and when last seen he had on a dark suit of clothes and wore a large ring with a lady's head on the set. He car ried a valise containing the tools neces sary to tuning and repairing pianos,and a larger one full of clothing. . ■• "re search has begun lo* him in Minneap olis and St. Paul, and this description may be of some aid. There is no re ward offered, but any information will be of service to his afflicted wife in Erie. SOO LINE GUN CLUB. • Dakota Chickens Are Informed of Approaching Danger. .7 Monday is the 15th of August, and on that day the law removes its pro tection from the prairie chicken, which will thereafter rustle for itself if it es capes the sportsman's shot. The "Soo Line ' Sportsman's club has waited pa tiently for the arrival of the day and to-morrow evening, with guns, dogs and necessary provisions the club will depart by special train over the Minneapolis & Pacific road for Ledgerwood, Dak., which place will be reached Sunday evening. Early Mon day morning the members will begin the slaughter, and for two weeks the broad prairies of Dakota will yield up their feathered treasures. The officers of the club, recently elected, are John Taylor, president; E. H. Bowen, secretary - treasurer; Frank Hay, steward; William Dolliver, Ed Batehelder, chambermaids ;"S. S. Kilv ington, general manager. The friends of these gentlemen and of the remain ing members of the club will naturally expect to receive by express daily braces of prairie chicken. And if the birds are not forthcoming all tales told on the re turn of the club will be discredited. IN THE WRECK. A Minneapolis Man's Brother In jured in the Chatsworth Acci dent. The railroad wreck at Chatsworth, 111., was the ill-absorbing topic of con versation in the hotel lobbies last even ing. The air was full of rumors. .At 10 o'clock a report was current that ,350 people were killed. Another report said that no bodies had yet been Re covered fiom the several cars at the bot tom of the wreck. Mr. Waters, a clerk in Alden's clothing store, re ceived a telegram last even ing from Chatsworth saying that his brother had been seriously in jured in the wreck. Mr. "Waters will leave for Chatsworth via the Burlington & Northern road this morning, and will reach his brother's side to-morrow morn ing. It was also reported that Secretary Sturtevant, of the chamber of com merce, had a daughter in the wreck, hut it was afterwards ascertained she took another train. The Government Exhibit. Prof. Spencer F. Baird, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, to whom ap plication was presented for an exhibit from the National museum, referred the entire matter to Prof. G. Brown Goode, assistant secretary in charge of the Na tional museum, with full power to act and prepare an exhibit for Minneapolis in conformity to joint resolution of congress No. IS. No better officer could have been found for this work, as Prof. Goode has bail an expe rience in exhibition and museum af fairs second to no one in America, hav ing on different occasions represented this country in exhibitions both in Europe and America, and having made museum work the study of his life. He at once proceeded to map out plans, and after doing this, appointed Mr. W. V. Cox. chief clerk of the museum, who had served under him at London, New Orleans, Louisville, Cin cinnati and other places, to represent him at Minneapolis and take direct charge of the management and look after the details of the installation. This that gentleman has done creditably to himself "and to the museum, as is shown by the exhibit prepared for ship ment. Among other museum officers who have contributed to the success of the exhibit may be mentioned Prof. O. T. Mason, department of ethnology: Prof. 11. K. Earle, department of fisheries; It. W. Peering, department of tex tiles, fabrics and foods: E. P. Dp ham. department of archeology: Prof. F. P. Dewey, department of metallurgy; Ilenry lloran, superinteudant of build ings. : -'-TyX He Wants It All. A suit was begun yesterday by Will iam S. King against L. F. Menage for 115,000, which Mr. King claims is the amount still due him on the final settle ment of the King-Remington suit. The complaint incidentally sets forth the fact that Mr. Menage has already paid over the. sum of £1,035,000 as his share of the settlement. A Bad Fall. What might have been a fatal accident occurred at Hume & Davies' undertak ing rooms yesterday morning. A family named Gibson lives in the third story of the building, and about 11 o'clock, Al fred, the six-year-old son of the family, was sliding down the stair rail between the third and second stories, when he lost his balance and fell, going through a skylight in the ceiling of Hume & Davies' work room and alighting on the floor, fully twenty feet below. .The. little 'fellow was unconscious when picked up by George Savery, the clerk in the store, but r?.s •*** revived, and before evening was running about, ap- * parently unharmed by his shaking up. yy'y The Lake Street Bridge. The joint meeting of the commission ers of Kamsey and Hennepin counties was held yesterday afternoon, but no - ■ particular business was transacted. It * was expected that the engineer wliffhas charge -of the building of- the tLake street bridge would have his plans ' and specifications ready so that bids could be received upon the work, but •• he reported that he had found an unex pected difficulty in locating one of the l piers and would have to ask for further time. The meeting thereupon adjourned j until the first Thursday *in September. SOME RACY TALK. $ , Police Commissioner Baxter— Weliy * Jlike, how do you feel? nave you heard from Davis this morning? . ; John E. Ward— The police commis- ' sion seems to know how to protect its friends. ■ ■ j'. \ ' Matt Bros— l am willing to leave* it to *, those who know to say whether I -have * ever failed in my duty. As long as a jailer is required . to do turnkey duty also, and to go in and out, to wait on the prisoners, there should be two men on duty all the time at the lock-up. Police Commissioner Baker— Anyone with half an eye could tell that that wrench had been used for a year or more. That man Humphrey must be a second-hand hardware dealer. Detective King— Let the inspectors have a fair show. Some of them couldn't see a hole in a stone wall. -'?'■• Chief of Police Hem— have done nothing that I wouldn't do again if I was told to. I have commenced econo mizing to be ready to pay Quinlan's judg ment—when he gets it. . • An Attorney— The law requires the police commission to provide a private room for private consultations between attorneys and clients, and prescribes; se vere penalties if such consultations are refused. But it doesn't require them to furnish wrenches, nor to throw the doors wide open. '••''' ' County Attorney Davis— last ac counts the poor old police commission hadn't found the man who furnished the wrench to Bradley, and apparently they liavent tried very hard. When they find him I am ready to do my duty' as county attorney. They will probably give lip the job, and when they do Jlike Quinlan will show them the difference between detective work and tomfoolery. Mike knows his business, and, having produced the wrench, will produce the culprits also, and the evidence to land them 111 the penitentiary. Don't misun derstand me when I say Jlike, I mean Mike Quinlan. not the other fellow. Edward A. Stevens— Why shouldn't Kingsley and Curtis be suspended? Isn't it necessary to find a scape-goat to shield the burglars? Now it would look like old times if a police commissioner would knock a man down with a wrench or pair of handcuffs, and then choke him until he "voluntarily and freely made a statement" which could be worked over in court to suit the necessi ties of the case. There is nothing like a "voluntary statement," even though a "wrench" be used to get it. Charles K. Hill— Some of the papers do not even quote * a man's sworn testi mony correctly. 1 did not say: "It would not take me long to tell what 1 , know of the Kelly case— it would ' take j longer to tell what I know of the news papers." • What 1 did say was that it would take me a long while to' "tell | what I know of A. J. Blethen." If he wants to see it in print, I'll write it out for 'twould be interesting to those: who do not know him. 1 yf. \ Jlayor Ames— Yes, I am a member of I the police commision, am president ex officio, and 1 feel that the legislature, in j imposing this duty upon me, humbled j me more than I have ever before been ' humbled in politics. 1 think Frank Da- ] vis, in the terrible scathing he gave this j body.ought to have apologized, in my be- : half.for the fix the Republican legisture placed me in. I cannot understand why 1 am excluded from these secret gather- j ings of .the other four commissioners j and kept in ignorance of their meetings ; when all these plans for enforcing cer tain laws are being considered, the oft-quoted language of Col. Glenn, "I neither ask for favors nor crave in dulgences." Say, by the way, about that Tommy Kelly investigation, I think they will get sick of tliat be fore they get through. Perhaps there may be another case of supplemental proceedings in which the modus operandi of Republican party assessments, which are still fresh in the minds of numerous people, may be brought out more vividly than that which has appeared in the Tommy Kelly case. 1 would like to see Charley Robinson. Ed Davenport, A. J. Blethen, Charley. Pillsbury and others placed before a referee of my choosing and I imagine they would be willing to call quits when honors were easy. When it came down to fine work in such a case, the Tribune would not be willing, probably, to publish a verbatim report of the testimony. Jlr. Blethen is get ting into deep water and unless he can swim he had better turn toward the shore. STILL HARPING. • To the Police Commission and Super intendent Hem— you caught the man who handed in the monkey wrench? If so, what is his name? • . .-■ D Nobody has resigned yet. but the door is still open. Doubtless council would cheerfully accept. If an election were to occur to-mor row, Frank Davis would be elected by acclamation. Attorney Knittle says he is not the man and that somebody lies. 'yj 'y.y -\ Pat Callahan and J. K. O'Brien are presenting their friends with minature monkey wrenches, making cute watch charms. The next grand jury meets in the ides of November, and the full orchestra will be on hand. Libel suits will rival divorce cases in occupying the attention of the courts. Poor Tribune, it has only fourteen now. J. C. Worrall has shaved his mustache off, but as it was not dark it was useless to sacrifice it. Why was not Jlayor Ames notified of that secret session of - the police com mission on Tuesday? He came out early from the labor picnic, and hearing : of the session asked his secretary if he had been notified. He had not. For. two hours he sat in his office ''-'but no word was sent him. ''Per haps the commission can explain this. One thing is certain if he had been there the board would never have 'made such an egregious ass of itself. y~ It is the" opinion of Mayor Ames** that no member of the police commission has any authority outside of the board, and has no shadow of right to issue Orders to a police officer except through*' the constituted authorities. - " Supt Hein— lts a lie that I did not know what was contained in the war rant I swore out against Franklin.',* Perhaps something will be done now towards utilizing the . appropriation of $30,000 for a new central police station. . The English claim America has .no ruins. The English have probably seen the police commission since, the Quinlan examination. hi ■..-, . It is stated that neither the mayor nor the acting mayor were - notified ■of a meeting of the police . commission, at which appointments and discharges of members of the police force were made. There are some provisions in the city charter relating to the control of the council over all city offices that have not yet- been .repealed, and . it • is high time that the efforts to run the city as well as the county business should be checked.

The remains will be taken to Kosemouut, Minn., for burial this morning. It is hinted that the Tribune having squarely asserted that Tommy Kelly is an em-, bezzler, he proposes to try what virtue there is in a proceeding for criminal libeL If Mr. Blethen should get behind the bars he might secure another wrench, and have a chance- to make a voluntary statement himself. . It is estimated that the . "ordinance estab lishing grades in the several 7 streets of | the city,'' which was presented in the city coun- J cil yesterday, will make forty printed pages. The ordinance . does not change existing grades, but consolidates sixty-seven grade ordinances into one for the convenience of those interested therein. "Grades come high but we must have "em.

Resolutions Adopted and a Ticket Nominated. Rochester, N. V., Aug. 11.— o'clock was the hour set for calling the Union Labor party convention to order, but it was 12 o'clock before Chairman Junio rapped for order. J. K. McKel vey introduced the following tariff plank: Resolved, That we, as a body of men rep resenting the workingmen of the state of New York, condemn the efforts made during the last congress to reduce the tariff on arti cles made and manufactured in this coun try; we demand in the interests of our man ufacturers and artisans that a protective tariff be maintained by congress for the further advancement of our interests, and we demand the abolishment of the internal even ue system. This resolution drew forth an active discussion, and the presentation: of an amendment by David Healy, in which the reference to the establishment of the internal revenue system was omit ted. : ; -7-7 yyfyry The resolution referring to pauper immigration is as follows: . • '. Whereas, There are now tens of thousands of men throughout the nation who cannot obtain employment; therefore, iitti.o Resolved, That we demand of the govern ment a more stringent enforcement of exist ing laws governing immigration, prohibiting the importation of contract labor, and fur ther, that it is the duty of congress to enact other protective laws by which there will be an imposition of an increased tax or other means of stopping this tide of immigration and the Hooding of the country with foreign laborers. .:--•■.> • -.:/■ < . , -, Resolved. That all discrimination ! by em ployers against lawful associations of em ployes to secure their rights, violates the con stitutional rights of the citizen and should be declared a felony. .. The tariff plank in the Cincinnati platform was adopted, with the amend ments of McKelvey and Healy, and also the plank compelling a label, to be placed on all prison contract work. A proposition to designate the Union Labor party as the Henry George party was strongly opposed. Jlr. JlcKelvey's announcement that he "recognized no man as a god" was applauded by. the convention. A resolution "that the laws against the employ ment of bribery, force or intimidation to secure nomina tions or elections to public office be rig idly enforced," was introduced and adopted. Another resolution against class legislation, whereby a poorman should be allowed to enjoy his beer at his saloon with the same freedom that the rich man enjoys his wine and liquors at his home or club, was tabled. The convention then proceeded to nominate candidates for state offices. The follow ing named were nominated : For secre tary of of state, Orville Preston, of Hor nellsville: for state treasurer, John J. Kvan, of Brooklyn; for comptroller, Asa Clapp. of .Ithaca; for attorney general, Lawrence JlcPharlan, of Lockport. The nominations were made with a rush, all being made by acclamation. : The con vention then adjourned sine die. y — : — p - Death of An Actress.

Detroit, Jlich., Aug. 11. A crowd of perhaps 500 persons was at Central Park last night watching the efforts of the doctors and several policemen to save the life of Charles Tegler, twenty-four years old, of 231 Brush street, who had taken morphine with suicidal intent in a fit of despondency. Tegler was stripped nearly naked, and while being walked about was I constantly . whipped with wet towels ' and a stout barrel stave. The people, watched the pro ceeding as if it were a street . fakir's show, and every now and then - some spectator would volunteer to do the licking and laid on the stave lustily. When; tired another volunteered. Tegler .will have . the satisfaction of knowing that this crowd saved his life, eyen if they did it for their own amuse ' ment. ".-■' • *.: ADMIRAL LUCE. He Speaks Disrespectfully of Sec retary Whitney. Halifax, N. 8., Aug. 11.— An ap parently well-founded rumor is current here that Admiral Luce has requested to be relieved of the command of the North Atlantic station, and that Com modore Benham, at present in charge of the Third Light House district, will relieve him. Admiral Luce and Capt. Scott met by accident in Consul General Phelan' s office yesterday morning, and the commander of the fisheries protec- ' tion service extended Empathy - to the admiral for the rebuke he received from the United States navy department. Admiral Luce received the condolence in the spirit in which it was tendered, and the trio had a half hour's pleasant informal conversation on the general as pect of the situation. The meeting was unintentional, asAdmiralLuce is not hold ingi any more formal conferences with the fishery authorities. Admiral Luce " was asked if he was surprised to find Secretary Whitney's dispatch in the press, and replied that he was never more astonished in his life. On being asked what he thought of his treatment, he expressed a desire not to speak of it, dismissing the subject by repeating the little Shakespearean remark: "Behold the great image of authority, a dog's obeyed in office." m — : — Instantly Killed. Special to the Globe. Cannon Falls, Aug. |11.— During the thunder storm Tuesday night Mrs. John E.
