Various Matters of Current Comment in
SOME PLAINLY PUT TRUTHS.
Subjects Under General Discussion and
Fads of Public Noto
HESE numerous libel
suits must be amus
ing to the public. It
is always amusing
when a newspaper be
gins an action in libel.
And it is especially
amusing when the
Tribune resorts to
.his species of music
—"the jingle of the
guinea helps the hurt that honor feels."
1 remember once the Tribune was made
defendant in a libel suit brought as the
result of sheer carelessness by one of
its reporters. How it did rip and tear
the air and its hair over the contempti
ble meanness of the man who would
bring a libel suit, aided and abetted
by a shyster lawyer. How it raved over
the peahut-souleu attorney who took a
libel suit on shares and wanted the
New York laws engrafted into the Min
nesota statutes too quick. It's different
now. And the Tribune wants §100,000
because Elder Stewart said he gave
more every year, in charity, than the
whole establishment was worth. The
court and jury will decide whether
this is actionable and meanwhile
the public will laugh. But the
Tribune has only partially
kept its word. It once vowed vengeance
on the placid elder and announced that
William Edwin Haskell had cabled from
Spain the authority to bring an action,
young Haskell just at that time was
off on his wedding trip. He was wan
dering through the gardens of the Lin
deraxain the soft effulgence of an Anda
lusian moon lit evening, enjoying the
traditional sweets of a honeymoon, and
he gave no heed toj Elder Stewart and
his news letter roots. Again it is
different. He has settled down
to prosaic life and as the editorial
head of a "thoroughly live and
aggressive paper," is interested in these
things. And there is another amusing
feature. These articles which are now
alleged to have been defamatory were
published in the News Letter, the des
tiny of which was controlled by Will
Biekley: but the whirligig of time has
changed this, and now Biekley works
for the Tribune and the News Letter is
in the dreamless sleep of death.
Of course Minneapolis wants a ball
team next year. But it does not want a
team that by hard work will lose a ma
jority of games and come out in fifth
place. Minneapolis is just ambitious
enough to want the best of everything,
and if a ball team is to wear its name it
must be a good one. In these degener
ate days, good teams cost money, and
there is no use. sense or judgment in
attempting to run one on a Cheap John
scale. Base ball is a public amusement,
and the public will only pay its money
to see what is good. A good team will
pay and a poor one will not, so there
is both profit and economy in
turning out a ball team that is bang up
and that can knock the socks off St.
Paul. Outsiders cannot realize the
feeling of the loyal Minneapolitanwhen
lie saw this year's team win but three
games from St. Paul out of a total of
eighteen. To succeed and make money,
Manager Foster must collect nine ath
letes who can mop the dust with any
aggregation John Barnes can get to
gether. These pointers are tendered
fratis, but it has seemed that Manager
oster is too much of a gentleman to
run a ball team.
There is one thing more. Sunday
games seem absolutely necessary to
make money, yet Rev. Aleck Miller and
his committee of South Minneapolis
saints cannot be brought to see it in
that light. Even the ponderous weight
of the influence of Editor Ole Colburn's
paper has failed to change the views of
that Bible class, which has been backed
up by an inexorable and hard-hearted
court. The plaudits when Elmer
Foster heaved the ball over the
leftfield fence disturbed funeral
exercises at a cemetery about a mile
away and the growl of disapproval of
one of Umpire Fessendeivs decisions
sounded like a cyclone through amis
sion Sunday school across the river. The
grounds must be changed, and will be
changed. .Sunday games must be played
where the yawping over a three-bagger
and the hilarious joy over a home~run
will not disturb Sunday school superin
tendents, bank cashiers and others of
the truly good.
Why cannot the poiice commission, to
use an expressive piece of slang, take a
tumble to itself? Aside from the fact
that it is doubtful whether the law un
der which it enjoys existence will sanc
tion the summary removal of a police
officer without charges or trial, the ques
tion of the moral effect on the force
should be considered. After the useless
shaking up of the force last May and
June, the men had ju st settled down to
something like efficiency, as the result
of the security felt in the fact that whim,
malice and personal feeling could
not endanger their heads, when now
comes this new fear and its consequent
demoralization. It is even said spies
are at work watching them and report
ing trivial matters. All of this will
completely upset and demoralize the
force, and another epidemic of bur
flaries and robberies may be expected,
t is too bad some of the commissioners
cannot be tapped and a little common
sense and judgment injected.
It seems this latest story In connec
tion with Albert Knittle and the monkey
wrench and the discovery of a St. Paul
lady who purchased a wrench is a pure
canard. Detective Quinlan has worked
it up thoroughly and satisfied. himself
there was nothing to it. But suppose a
St. Paul lady had bought -the wrench.
How did it get into the Minneapolis
lockup? It was a little incongruous that
a lady, "the wife of a man high in so
ciety and herself a leader of
fashion,"' should buy . a monkey
wrench for stable purposes. J However.
Quinlan says lie ascertained first, that
Attorney Campbell never saw Detective
O'Conner; second, that Detective
O'Conner never saw Attorney Campbell;
third, that they did not agree to adver
tise for the mythical. lady; fourth, that
no lady claimed to have made the
Eurchase; fifth, that Albert Knittle says
c knows nothing of it, and last, that
there is nothing to it. Finally, if the
story were true, what real bearing does
it have on the case?
There is a rule at the Grand Opera
house prohibiting any employe from

MEN IN MISERY.
Blue-Coated Guardians Uneasy
jfi_| Under the New Rule.
The recent action taken by the board
of police commissioners in summoning
before it all the officers at the various
stations and notifying them that they
(the members of the board) had come to
the conclusion that under the law
they could drop a man from the
force without specific charges being
made against him, has created a wide
spread feeling of dissatisfaction among
the men, ' many ol - whom put in a
good deal of time yesterday in abusing
the commission and wondering what
the outcome will be. The idea that a
man can be fired, on the complaint of
any one who happens to have a grudge
against him, without a trial of any sort,
does not at all find favor among either
the patrolmen or the officials, and none,
when talking in strict confidence, have
any hesitation about expressing their
opinion in a very' forcible manner.
There is a feeling of uneasiness at all
the precinct stations, and every man is
wondering whether he will get a blue
envelope or not. To add to the
misery of the men, this honorable
commission has lately employed two
spotters, ex-policemen, who are paid to
do nothing but walk around the city and
try to catch the patrolmen doing some
thing that infringes upon the law laid
down by the commission, These two
men have been making a number of re
ports lately, and it is generally sup
posed that the recent action taken by
the board has something to do with it.
There was to have been a meeting of
the commission last evening, but as only
one of the members put in an appear
ance there was nothing done. It was
learned that five or six men would be
dropped from the force, leaving the
whole number, 175. About fifteen of
the three months' men will be retained.
It is possible that some of the permanent
patrolmen will receive envelopes in
forming them that the city desires their
HE WANTED TO FIGHT.
His Wife, Being Small, Picked
Out as the Victim.
About 2 o'clock yesterday morning a
handsome young woman came into po
lice headquarters, crying and sobbing.
On being questioned she said that her
husband was a waiter in a well-known
resort and had come home drunk and
had put her out of the house. The hus
band, a tall, supercillious-looking fel
low, was brought down to* headquar

His excuse for putting his wife out in

The Sword of Damocles.
The cartoon on the ninth page illus
trates the police commission at its
deadly work again. The force is on the
ragged edge of uncertainty, and its
efficiency is entirely imperiled. With
spies on their heels and the knowledge
that, law or no law, they can be dis
charged with charges or tried—how
could they be expected to do efficient
duty? The sword of Damocles is sus
pended by a single hair over their heads
and the police commission scissors may
snap the thread at any moment. It is
commendable, at least, two of the po
lice commission's fingers are not wield

STILL IN THE AIR.
Elder Stewart Keeps Elder Blethen
From Touching Ground.
A LIBELOUS SYMPOSIUM.
A Lame Complaint on the Part of
the Tribune — Rich
Judge Rea yesterday listened pa
tiently at the special term of the dis
trict court to arguments on motions in
six suits brought by Elder Stewart
against that interesting fireside journal
and signal service reporter, the
Minneapolis Tribune,.and two suits
against the elder instituted by the Trib
une and that inoffensive individual, A.
J. Blethen. Of the six suits against the
Tribune four were withdrawn by stip
ulation that the pleadings might be
amended, and demurrers to the com
plaint were argued in the other two.
In the first case the demurrer was that
no notice for a retraction had been
served upon the paper. Seagrave Smith,
Stewart's attorney, answered this by
simply calling attention to the fact that
the alleged libel was committed prior to
the passage of the law requiring
a newspaper to retract upon notice.
In the other case the demurrer was that
the charge that the elder had moved
his office to his home was not a libel
per se, and that consequently there was
no cause of action. Judge Rea re
served his decision in both cases.
The demurrers to the suits against
Stewart were next heard. Seagrave
Smith asserted that the allegation of the
defendant that he gave away in charity
every year more than the whole Trib
une company is worth, above his debts,
was not libelous.
Judge Rea—l am satisfied that this is
Seagrave Smith— no question
Judge Babcock made a strenuous ap
peal to induce the court to consider the
demurrer, and was so far successful that
Judge Rea finally said: "Oh, well, I'll
The argument had the effect of bring
ing out a portion of the complaint of
Blethen against Stewart not yet given
to the public, which is claimed to be
li belous, and reads:
Mr. Blethen tries to convey the impression
that he is a member of the Tribune company
instead of an employe of the company,
which forcibly reminds one of the story of
"How We Apples Swim." Mr. Blethen was
such a fearful and reckless mud-slinger and
6tench-stirrer that they would do almost any
thing, or refuse to do it, rather than have him
open his skunk batters on them.
That the least unfriendly rub of his dingy
cuticle or tabby hair is certain to bring a
deluge that will not only "smell to heaven,"
but to the other place as well. A person of
average common sense knows enough when
he does lie, to do it at such a time, in such a
manner and to such people that somebody
will believe him and not in such a way as to
write himself liar all over his own state
ments. But when a man is too drunk or too
foolish, he observes no cautionary rules, but
follows bis natural bent. The proprietors of
the Tribune have made a grave mistake in
allowing such a man as Mr. Blethen to have
control or influence in conducting it. He
has greatly damaged it from the start. De
cause no one can tell what to believe
that he sees published in it. Mr. Blethen re
gards it as smarta mark of newspaper abil
ity—to misrepresent and deliberately falsify
even well known and thoroughly established
facts. Whereas a newspaper, as well as an
individual, is bound to be seriously crippled,
if not absolutely wrecked, by a settled repu
tation of a common liar. But the present
owners of the Tribune, while they have been
very slow to discover their mistake, have at
last got round to it and have served notice on
Mr. Blethen to quit and give him the grand
bounce next January."

He Would Steal.
As one of the inspectors was walking
down Nicollet avenue last evening he
ran up against Ed Kane, alias Carle, a
young man of about twenty-four, with a
huge bundle of cloth, valued at about
875, under his arm. Not being able to
explain where he obtained it t he was
taken to the First precint station. Kane
was released from the workhouse only
yesterday morning, where he had served
a term for stealing a valuable valise.
The cloth was owned by Craig Bros.,

Does the careful i man neglect fire ml

cellar, cistern and woodshed, rents for 820
per month the third and largest is a house
of nine rooms, part of which is rented lor

news: "Richfield Springs will have a population of
one million in fifty years if the baby business con
tinues as it has for the past few months- Some are
having children that have never been known to have
them. It is confined to females so far. If it should
break out in general woe to us." The more the mer

the girls just as well, only they don't wear the UTK
