COME INTO THE COURT.
Opening Day of the September
Term of Court in Ramsey
County.
Judge Kelly was on the bench ready
for bolness" ha/. Armstrong, wearing a
latest style collar, had the roll of grand
jurors ready to proceed; and the wheels
of justice would have been set in motion
at 10 o'clock yesterday morning bad it
not been for the tardiness of some of the
members of the jury. E. A. Brown sent
word that he was sick and unable to
appear, and he was excused. Col. Al
vareu Allen said that he was sixty
seven years of age, and on that account,
being "exempt, was excused. J. B.
lloxife and F. B. Doran were absent, and
attachments were ordered. At about
10:30 Judge Kelly began his charge to
the grand jury" He first appointed
William H. bean foreman, then read
from the statutes the duties of grand
jurors. These finished, he expressed
"regret that he was unable to make their
duties light. "Unfortunately the serious
nature of the offenses awaiting your
action compel me to speak plainly to
you,* * said the judge. "That there are
agencies at work in our midst, which, if
not checked soon, will render our com
munity metropolitan in ways not to be
emulated' is undoubtedly true. You are
not called simply to pass upon persons
already charged with public offenses.
It is your boanden duty to impure into
all offenses triable in this community.
OBEAT crimes
seldom exist without many underlying
causes. There are men to-day in prison
who in all human probability* would not
have been there had grand juries and
public officials been fearless and done
their duty. .
1 call your attention to one fruitful
cause of disorder in every community
when toleratedpublic gambling. Se
duction is the gambler's art—is demor
alizing in the last degree. The history
of the human wrecks made in these
hells is found in the records of every
criminal court in the land. If any
places of this kind—however clothed in
name—exist in this county, I charge
you that, as honest men, looking well
to the future of those who occupy places
of trust and may be tempted, and fall,
to see to it that those who keep and aid
such be promptly prosecuted and pun
ished.
Then there is the keepingjof houses of
public prostitution. Prolific in vice—
degrading not only to their hapless in
mates, but to their foul frequenters —
they need only to be mentioned in a
Christian community to be condemned.
Not only axe those who keep and fre
quent such houses public offenders, but
also the owners of buildings who know
ingly let them for immoral purposes.
The abuses growing out of the traffic ;
in intoxicating liquors are also casesuof
crime more or less grave. Furnishing
the liquors to minors and inebriates,
keeping disorderly houses, permitting
gambling therein, and keeping the
places where intoxicants are dealt in
open for business on the Sunday are all
most dangerous violations of law. Not
only*' is this last offensive as desecrating
the Lords-day, a day which in all hum
ble sincerity from this bench I say
should be kept holy, but as in large com
munities on the Sunday necessarily
there are great numbers of idle men,
these places entice many to excess and
excess leads to crime. The records of
our courts prove every word I saw
These laws should be enforced—impar
tially.' fairly firmly. Persecute no man
—but let all men understand that the
laws must be respected and obeyed.
After the charge .the jury held a short
session and then adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning, when they will
begin work in earnest. After the re
tirement of the grand jury the weary
and monotonous work of calling the cal
endar was begun, and it will probably
not be finished before to-night. Baz
Armstrong and J. P. Davis, the deputy
, nQ -*J^*ks, assumed
COMFOKTABI— POSITION'S
behind the clerk's desk and attended
strictly to business. C. A. Severance
unbuttoned his coat and vest and
awaited the call of the cases in which
his firm is interested, with a look-at-the
number-of-cases-we-have air. J. W.
Willis •'•adjusted his gold spectacles
well upon his nose and looked straight
at the calendar during the entire day.
_. P. Sanborn sat in an obscure corner,
but he had the floor a good portion of
the time. J.J. McCafferty had some
thing to say as the cases were called,
and lie said it in that majestic manner
peculiarly his own. J. F. Fitzpatrick
occupied one of the benches outside the
railing, but he had something to say oc
casionally. O. M.Metcalf. when he"was
not busy, was asleep on one Of the
benches. S. L. Pierce seemed anxious
to get to the fray. He could hardly wait
until las cases were called. Edwin
Gribble had business in the court room,
but when he was not busy he seemed
interested in watching the others. E. St.
Julieu Cox captured a seat well up
toward the desk, and when he was on
his feet lie succumbed to the judge's
rulings with his natural grace. H. J.
Horn was there for business only, and
he transacted it in a business like man
ner. L. M.Vilas -was as conspicuous
among the other attorneys. He has a
number of cases on the calendar. E, E.
McDonald sat through the whole day
with a smile upon his face. He always
enjoys himself. J. E. Markham looked
satisfied with the -number of cases he
had on the calendar. O. E. Holnian was
busy part of the time. C. H. Fauntlerov
enjoyed the proceedings; in true old
Virginia style. Hon. W. P. Murray in
sisted on sitting at the deputy sheriff's
chair. He was busy as well as T. D.
O'Brien in looking after the city's cases.
J. B. Brisbin seemed as spry as his
younger brethren when his cases were
called. B. H. Scriber was one of the
youngest of the. attorneys present, but
he had several cases to look after. L. J.
Dobner forgot about the school board
and thought only of law. O. K. Saner
was there nearly all day waiting for his
chance to talk. Henry Johns looked as
happy as though he was on a trip to
Fargo with the St. George Snowshoe
club. There were many other lawyers
in the room and all'of them seemed to
enjoy the weary task hugely. One thing
| noticeable was the large number of the
younger members of the profession who
have cases on this calendar.

YUM KIPPUR.
Observation of the Day of. Atone
ment by the Je wish Citizens.
The services ushering in the Hebrew
Day of Atonement began at 0 o'clock
last evening in the synagogue at the
corner of Minnesota and Tenth streets.
This day is in fact the most important
and most generally observed of all the
Jewish holidays. In Frankfort,
Vienna, and most of the other European
money centers the exchanges do but
little business, ami of times close on-
Yum Kippur, as the day is called. The
reasons for the celebrations and serv
ices of last night and to-day were very
beautifully set forth in the discourse of
Rabbi Samuel Freuder last evening.
His text was Micah vi, 8:
He hath showed thee.O man, what is good,
and what doth the Lord require of thee, but
to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk
humbly with thy Goat*'
"The holiest of all days," he said."the
crown of all festivals, the Sabbath of
Sabbaths, has come. O thrice blessed
hour that brings us together and draws
us nearer to each other and nearer to
God. When all the year around the
divided activities of life separate us
and the whirl of business carries us
away in different directions, this day
unites us again and becomes a day of
atonement in the original meaning of
the word, which is derived from "at"
and "one,"' signifying the making us at
one with our fellow men and with our
God. The sublime idea underlying this
festival is that God extends his mercy
to the deepest-fallen sinner as soon as
he repents of his transgressions."
The speaker then compared the Jew
ish idea of sin and atonement with that
advanced by Christianity, and main
tained that the Jewish idea of atone
ment that the prophet teaches is the
true idea of atonement and gives the
only correct answer to the question,
"now can we be saved?" Services will
be held in the synagogue this morning
at 9:30 and will continue until sunset.
Rabbi Freuder will officiate, assisted by
President Max Warshauer. '.". -
IMPRESSIVE WORSHIP.
In the second and third floor halls of
the Exposition block, formerly the Fam
ily dime museum, but recently occupied
by the Gospel Army, another sect
of Hebrews were celebrating
the Yum Kippur last: -. night.
Both floors- were divided -by
a curtain stretching . across
the hall, separating the male apartments
from the females, for they do not believe
in co-worship by'the sexes. A high
altar in the males' room, draped with
costly silk fabrics, bearing mottoes in
Hebrew, stood at one end, sur
mounted by a dozen- long . tallow
candles, burning brightly. Hundreds
of ■•••'-these "candles stood about
the room on chairs and tables which
were thrown profusely about without
regard to any order. A strong smell of
incense pervaded the room and at a
large table at the foot of the altar was a
mass of offerings wrapped up in paper
and cloth. Four men with sway
ing bodies stood close about
the altar and chanted continuously
in Hebrew. These were robed in long
black and white garments, and the
fourth in citizen's clothes. All were in
their stocking feet and wore their hats.
Another paced the floor with a Hebrew
bible in his hand, robed in white, with
a black girdle. This wierd form of
worship lasted all night, and will be
continued until G o'clock this evening.
SHAVED ON SUNDAY.
The Sunday Closing Law for Bar
bers Said to Have Been Broken.
At last the law requiring the closing
of barber shops on Sunday, which was
passed with so much unanimity by. the
last legislature, and so much kicking
from a discommoded public, lias got be
fore the courts. G. H. E. Smith, pro
prietor of the Merchants hotel barber
shops, and six colored barbers in his
employ, were arraigned in the municipal
court yesterday morning charged with
violating the law, in a complaint sworn
to by C. G. Aamold, a member of the
Journeymen Barbers' union.- It is al
leged that Smith and his assistants-have
been plying their trade every Sunday in
an up stairs room at the Merchants to
which guests were admitted on presen
tation of a card from the clerk. Grow
ing bold because there was no prosecu
tion. Smith opened the shop in the base
ment to the public last Sunday, it is
claimed, and the tonsorial artists worked
away much the same as on week days.
The cases were continued until Friday,
and it is understood that Smith will
make a legal light, appealing to the su
preme court, if necessary, to. test the
validity of the law. The barbers gen
enerally, especially the journeymen,
are in favor of Sunday closing, and will
prosecute all proprietors who violate
the law. "'iY

There's three more ■ of them over there.
Four of them just went out to the cor-;

'.'. Those who claim to know say that
the parties interested were await
ing the arrival of Dennis Ryan before
anything further could be done in the
S remises. Some say that property on
acksou street, all the way from Seventh
street to Ninth street, is enjoying quite
a boom in consequence. A gentleman
prominent in real estate circles stated
ast evening that the new theater would
without doubt be erected opposite the
Ryan on Sixth street. He gave as his
reason that- this place was very centrally
located, was easy of access by. any of
the street car lines and was convenient
to the principal hotels. The cost, he
said, would be a secondary considera

CONFLICTING STORIES
Told by the 'Parties to the Hunt
' Dupries Affair.
Fred G. L.Hunt, a printer and pub
lisher arrested Monday night for en
ticing Miss Alice Dupries, of No. 441
Indiana avenue, into his office on the
sixth floor of the Union block for im
moral purposes, was sentenced to sixty
days in the work house with an alterna
tion of 350 fine by Judge Cory yesterday.
Miss Dupries' testimony was that she
came to the Union block on her way
home at 8 o'clock in the evening to call
for her escort, Mr. Monkhouse, who
is a draughtsman with offices in the
building. At the bottom of the stairs
she met Hunt, and inquired of him the
way to Mr. Monkhouse's office. Under
pretense of showing her there, she says,
he led her to his own room on the' top
floor, where he locked the door and
made improper proposals to her. She
resisted, and when she screamed for
help he told her it would do no good, as
there was no one else in the building.
Finally, however, he became fright
ened, and allowed her to go. She called.:
a policeman at once and had him ar
rested. Hunt is a teacher and promi
nent figure in the House of
Hope Sunday school, and has pre
viously borne a good repu- !
tation as a Christian gentleman. He
asserts that his persecution is a black
mailing scheme. He admits having ac
companied the young lady to his rooms,
but says she went voluntarily and
made improper advances to him, which
lie frowned upon. He says she sat
down in his lap* without permission and
than got up and screamed, and told
him if he did not "put up" she would
have him arrested. Hunt says he has
engaged an attorney and will have the
case re-opened. •
POLITICS IN THE STATE
Sized Up by' Ex-Senator Rah illy on
a Visit to St. Paul.
Ex-State Senators Rahilly and Malone
were discussing crops and politics in the
rotunda of the Merchants yesterday,
and greeted the Globe's representative
very cordially when he inquired for
news from Southern Minnesota. "The
chinch bug has played sad havoc with
our crops," said Mr. Rahilly, "and in
my case alone, where I had 1,200 acres
of wheat I did not secure a good bushel.
This state of affairs has made our
people feel pretty blue, and politics are
for the time being lost sight of. In my
opinion, however, with a good state
ticket in the field next year the Democ
racy ought to secure Minnesota, and
either of three men might be selected to.
lead us. I refer to Mayor Ames, Repre
sentatives Rice and Wilson, and in the
event of the latter two preferring con
gressional to gubernatorial honors, then
by all means let us have Ames. Undoubt
edly Gov.McGill would like to secure the
endorsement that a renomination would
give him, but with Ames pitted against
him I don't think history would repeat
itself. Mayor Ames is very popular
with the masses and would secure votes
that no other candidate could, with the
possible exception of Judge Wilson.
Few of us will ever forget the run that
the latter made in the last congressional
campaign when his chances for success
seemed-- well nigh hopeless, and in a
gubernatorial race he would be invinci
ble. The reputation that Ex-Mayor
Rice and Judge Wilson have would be a
tower of strength in the approaching
campaign, but I believe both of them
want to go to Washington."
"On the"Republican side the talk about
Railroad Commissioner Gibbs does not
seem to have anything substantial about
it. And as" for Knute Nelson, what do
the Swedes want? Are they not satis
fied with two congressmen? It is about
time that there was a stop put to this
race cry, which seems to be the stock in
trade of the Nelson men. These senti
ments seemed to be reciprocated by Mr.
Malone, who occasionally nodded his
head in acquiescence, and when the
Swede topic was broached he was most
emphatic, in denunciation of such a
policy. -Both gentlemen coincided in
the belief that there was a good fighting
chance for carrying Minnesota at the
state election in 1888, no matter how the
national contest might be decided."
FAST WORK AT GRADING.
The Long Fill Made on State
Street, West St. Paul. '■"■',yL :
One of the greatest of the many pub
lic improvements that has been made
. on the West side is the grading of- State
street, which is going on at present.
This street is a continuation of Broad
way on the other side of the river and
runs on a straight line until it reaches
. the Minnesota & Northwestern trabfes,
where it makes a turn to the right and
passes.up the bluff at this point. The
fili begins at Indiana avenue and ex
tends to the tracks. In making this fill
three trains, consisting each of twenty
one cars an a locomotive,* are employed,
besides a heavy force of men. The cars
are loaded by means of a steam shovel
at the gravel pit in South St. Paul, a
half hour being consumed in the opera
tion. /.Each car contains five cubic yards
of dirt, and it is estimated that 2,800
cubic yards are deposited in the fill
. each day.. This work was commenced
about two weeks ago and so quickly has
it been pushed that it is expected the
fill f will be completed in .- about two
weeks more. The heaviest grading will
be made near the railroad tracks and in
the vicinity of the bridge which will
span them.

MAJ. EDWARDS' DEAD.
How Four Aces Pulled Him Out
of a Very Deep Hole.
A few days ago when Maj. Edwards,
the boss poker player of the Red river
valley, was in St. Paul wandering aim
lessly through the rotunda of the Ryan,
his eye - fell on the round white face of
the weighing machine that stands near
the entrance. Going up to it the major
read the following inscription;
* • • •• .'........... *
: Ascertain your correct weight. :
Drop 5 cent nickel Into slit. -y-":*
* •• ••»
The great man from the Northwest
reached down into his pocket and feed
ing it to the weighing machine through
the slit, mounted the platform. The
machine's capacity for weighing reaches
only 280 pounds, and as the weight
of the major has been something
more than 300 pounds for a
long time now, he was not a little taken
back when the indicator swung round
to 280 pounds at a lively pace and
stopped. The major jigged up and
down, but the pointer refused to move
and looking a trifle worried. The heavy
weight editor and politician climbed off
the platform and going over to the cigar
stand leaned on the show case and
asked the boy behind the counter if
'•them scales over there" were supposed
to be all right.
"Trues a dot," replied the boy, and:
the major walked away rubbing the
lower part of his vest and wondering
what in the dickens had made him fall
away so. He had lost thirty pounds in
one weeic according to the scales, and
he laid it all to an interesting little
game of draw that he had got mixed up
with while in Sioux Falls a few days
before. The major went down
there on business, but when his
presence in the town was
known, Frank'Pettigrew, the whilom
congressman, and Melville Grigsby, the
South Dakota dictator, hunted him up,
and in less than an hour the three were
comfortably locked in a splendidly up
holstered office in the rear of the First
National bank, with their hats drawn
down over their eyes, fighting like bull
dogs over variegated jack-pots. Grigsby
and Pettigrew had the advantage in
that they were fighting on their own
heath, and fortune seemed inclined to
give the major a cold shoulder, but he
stood his ground well and met his losses
with the grit of a Spartan. All the aft
ernoon and into the night the battle
waged, growing hotter each hour, and
the beautifully colored
RED AND BLUE CHIPS
were gradually piling up under the
chins of Pettigrew and Grigsby, while
the major had been compelled to lay
several checks of good round proportions
on the table to meet the
"stabs" that his antagonists were
making at him. -. The sweat
was rolling down his face, there was an
anxious look in his eyes and he showed
signs of nervousness. He was a heavy
loser and it began to look as though he
would have to walk back to Fargo. At
last the cards were pased to him to deal
and, shaking them together carelessly,
he laid them over on Grigsby's side of
the table |to cut. Grigsby didn't cut.
Slowly the major dealt the cards until
the hands were out. It cost a. hundred
dollar bill to stay and Grigsby raised "it
to 6200. .Edwards saw that and dropped
his check for $500 more in the center of
the table.. Pettigrew and Grigsby
looked curious but they were in and had
to meet the raise which they did."
"Cards said Edwards.'. "
"One!" said Pettigrew.
"One!" said Grigsby.
Slowly the major vgave them their
cards and pulling five from the pack laid
them down in front of him.
"The devil," thought Grigsby.
"What a snap," thought Pettigrew. .
The major picked up his. cards and
glanced them over. Grigsby's eyes
snapped, for he had a queen full on
jacks. Pettigrew's eyes glistened, for
-he had four kings. The major's eyes
had a sort of a sad,sorrowful expression.
"I'll bet $1,000 that my hand is good,"
said Pettigrew, showing up chips and
checks to that amount.
"I'll bet §2.000 that my hand is bet
ter," said Grigsby, raising Pettigrew's
bet - y ... -.<■-.
The major laid his cards down on the
table and said:
"Gentlemen, I'm broke. I've checked
out to you the last cent I've got in the
bank, but if either one of you want to
take a mortgage on my newspaper office
for $10,000, I'll give it to you and bet
that amount of money that my hand
wins the pot."
"One of his old time bluffs," though
Grigsby and Pettigrew.tand' the latter
promptly said, "I'll take the mortgage,
major, and advance you the money and
I'll call the bet."
"I'll do the same," said Grigsby, fill
ing out a blank check for $10,000 and
laying it on the center of the table.
"I reckon I've got you, for here are
four kings," said Pettigrew, tossing his
cards down ahead of time. -
"The h—1!" . ejaculated Grigsby,
crushing his queen full in his hand. "'
--"Hem!" said the major, "it's pretty
tough, gentlemen, but I had to have
'em. Here are four aces. Its-funny
how they stuck together that way." .
He raked in the pile and the game
ended. .
Outside' Grigsby said to Pettigrew,
"did you ever see such luck?"
Pettigrew replied, "luck, you seem to
forget that 'twas his deal,"
