The play "In Spite of All" has been re-enacted in Minneapolis, but this time the principal characters were taken by Mr. Allen and Miss Hoben, who figured so conspicuously in a sensational elope ment some time ago, which was fully detailed in the Globe. From all that can be learned, it appears that Allen came back to the wife he had so cruelly wronged some days ago and called to see her. She held an interview with him, in which he promised "never to do so" again and all sorts of things. When Allen went away with Miss Hoben Mrs. Allen's parents, who are wealthy, went to her and promised to see that she was comfortably provided for if she would never see her husband again. While she was considering this proposition Allen called to see her, and, with tears in his eyes, begged to be takeu back for the sake of the children if nothing else. Mrs. Allen finally agreed to for give him if he would promise to care for her properly in the future. One day, the latter part of the week, Allen received a letter from the girl, telling him to meet her at the union depot in St. Paul. This Allen did not do, but sent his brother-in-law and a friend down to see her. After they had gone, Mr. and Mrs. Allen went down town, and while on the comer of First avenue south and Washington.met Miss Hoben. She asked Allen if he would mairy her when he procured a divorce from his wife. Allen responded that he would not, as he did not care for her, and did not propose to get a divorce from his wife. Mutual recriminations followed, and those who were present say that the scene was not a pleasing one. After talking some time the party separated. Mr. and Mrs. Allen going home. Miss Hoben has gone to her home in Grand Rapids, Wis., swearing she will make life a burden for Allen. Allen promises reformation, and says that as soon as he has straightened up some business matters he will go to Canada with his family. Miss Hoben is quite a pretty young girl, aud was a clerk at Goodfcl low's. To run away with Allen she broke off an engagement with an estima ble young man at her home. A MISCOUNT CLAIMED. A Club Would "Like to Know Where Its Money Went. Some of the members of the Scandi navian Democratic club are of the opin ion they did not get a "square deal in the contest at Normanna fair. They are proceeding very cautiously to ascer- i tain where the difficulty lies, as they say they have all confidence in the in tegrity of tho judges and tellers. When the polls closed for the open ballot and the secret ballot began, the clubs were : very close, The sealed envelopes were deposited and when the time elapsed the counting began. The result an nounced and placed on the blackboard gave 795 votes for the Democratic club. There is where the protest came in. Two gentlemen called at the Globe office yesterday, each armed .with an affidavit, stating that in . the secret ballot one of them had voted $8 and the other $76, making a total of $84 or 840 votes. Yet the court gave them but 795. In addi tion to this, one of the affiants says there were nine other envelopes with votes for the Democratic club, went into the box and he would like to know what become of the money. "Do you suspect anyone of fraud?" "No, we don't. But we believe there was some Republican sharp practice go ing on. We know the tellers were square and honest, and acquit them en tirely, but what become of our money?. Perhaps there was a mistake and it was counted for the wrong club?" * "What 1 find fault with," said the other, "Is - the ' fact that no system of .checking was used in opening, the en velopes and counting the money." A YOUNG NANKI-PO Learning American Customs at Minne apolis. A FEW OF HIS IDEAS. Minoru Tanaka/an Almond-Eyed Jap, Imbibing Northwestern Enterprise. • i About the most striking thing pre- r sented to a stranger in visiting Minne- ' apolis, taking Into account its age and ■ size, is its metropolitan appearance. This is largely due to the cosmopolitan sin of its people. A stroll upon the streets of the city reveal almost as great a variety of nationalities as one can meet on the thoroughfares of New York. A Hindoo from the banks of the Gauges is employed in a local restaurant as a ■ cook; a humble subject of . the czar of Russia, who first saw the light of day by that far away northern sea of Arch-. '■' angel; plies his trade of repairing musty garments on Washington avenue, while another rebellious subject of the same monarch, who can tell quite remarkable stories of Siberia and other such out landish places, is to-day head of a large and prosperous business in this city of flour, and making one of the many who assist towards its future prosperity and greatness. The fame of Minneapolis has not, however, merely gone in the direction of Europe. 'Ihe people of many Asiatic climes have tasted of the sweetness of the far-famed flour of this region, and none more so than that land of flowers and olive-eyed beauties — the land of Titipu— better known geo graphically as Japan. From the islands which compose the kingdom of Japan within the past few years have started a small. army of young men overrun ning Europe and America, in search of knowledge and experience of the world. A wonderful revolution in the internal state of their native land from "ways that were dark and tricks that were vain" to the free and enlightened meth ods of civilization, such as eating with knives and forks— the imbibing of copi ous draughts of beer— and casting en ticing winks upon the maidens passing fair and cute of their native burghs has taken place within the past ten or fifteen years and the immigration of the aforesaid army of Japanese young sters is but a temporary affair; they will all return loaded with engineering skill, American methods of bookkeeping, and (alas! for their digestive organs!) loaded with a knowledge and finesse in mixing Amer ican drinks that will at once arouse the admiration and dismay of the rounders of Tokio and Yokohama. One of these interesting specimens of a most remark able people arrived in Minneapolis a short while ago, and in all respects is a - most charming sample of the educated Jap. He holds a good position in a business house, and there would be lit tle risk in wagering that in his business methods, his penmanship and his figur ing few American boys could beat him. Minora Tanaka, for that is his name, is about nineteen years old, and received his whole education at Tokio, the largest city and the seat of government of Japan. Here the schools all give a thorough English course, in addition to teaching the native language. This gives a great impetus to the wondeiful changes that are being worked out so rapidly, and makes it easy for the mass of the people to comprehend the use and blessing of the railroads that are being ; constructed so extensively all over the country. The telegraph and telephone also flourish like a green bay tree, and apart from the differently constructed buildings and lay-out of the towns, ow ing to the difference of climate, he claimed there was not so much differ ence, after all, between our mode of living and theirs. The social manners of his countrymen he spoke of graph ically. When asked if courtship was carried on the same he said no. Like in France, it was largely a matter of convenience. The parents made all the arrangements, the couple met once or twice and the knot was tied. The theaters entered largely into the every day life. They were large— very large; that is, not high, but "covered a big space. No ladies acted on the stage, but a reform party had sprung up, and ' it was expected they would break down the barrier preventing the fair sex from sharing in his trionic honors. All the great actors were direct descendants from their predecessors— that is, often a family for centuries were famous on the stage, The greatest living actor is Danjuro Ichlkawa; he is a tragedian and stands in the estimation of his countrymen the same as Booth does in the United States. An idea of how practical these remarkable little people are, may be judged from the fact that one of the first things they organized when they commenced trying American institu tions was a fire department with steam engines. Their navy is a model one. having the latest style gunboats and ironclads made in Europe, especially made to their own order. While Eng lish and Germans are favorably re ceived, Americans are by far the most popular, being looked upon by the gov ernment and people as their very best of friends. The ways of mankind are 1 materially the same all over the : : world ; parties direct over there as well as here in politics, and while the Democrats and Republicans will be : squabbling over the merits of tariff re form Cleveland and the man from Maine, this year the meek-eyed, earnest little Japs will be abusing and insulting one another on their national question,' which is about the treaty they made* with the civilized powers some twenty ? years ago, and which they want modi- ' tied, or something to that effect. Jour nalism is largely similar to the publica- 1 tions of this country. They likewise have their funny men, and the editors get hot with one another and then set- ! tie their differences over an amicable glass of beer, which, by the way, is the latest innovation introduced. Minora' Tanaka is a decided acquisition to Mm- 1 neapolis. He evidently possesses largely the best qualities of his native land. From his olive-colored eyes comes a look that is earnest, hard working and perse vering; his manners show intelligence and good breeding, and that bashful ness, which is rather a charm about them than otherwise, and which showed itself quaintly in Tanaka's case, as he hung his head when asked what he thought of American girls, and coyly answered: "Well, me thinka them berry pretty, but a none of them tickle me yet.'' _» LOGIG AND CABBAGE. The Market Gardeners Still Hans, Fire on Garbage. ■*-.••. ; The market gardners held their usual matinee yesterday afternoon in the an nex hall to the "Salvationists," Market, hall. The stove was in great requisi tion, and gathered around that com fortable article, an unusually exciting debate was entered upon the subject of cabbages by the dozen or so men pres ent. The more important question of garbage was taken up later, but, as usual, no definite opinion was reached. It was evident that the old gentle men were willing to believe they were great benefactors to the city and' if they solve the manure question they certainly can justly lay claim to the title. The main difficulty seemed to be about haviug a man at the dumping station to attend to the busi ness of unloading. One farmer said he would take 250 car loads a year of regu lar manure. The other kinds of garb age would be disposed of otherwise, such as rags, bottles, ashes, etc., etc. President Pierce cautioned slowness iv coining to a conclusion as to the definite stand they would take in the matter, and so the question rests for another week, when next Saturday there Is a possibility of its being disposed of, as far as the gardeners are concerned. •j GONE ASTRAY. An "Every Day Story From Every Day ->; Life. r. ' >■ *) ; •** * ' ______ A ZOLA IN MINNEAPOLIS. Romance of a Poor Young Girl- Still Going On About Us Always. EOPLE said that she had gone v astray. Some even | whispered that ■she was bad; and f there were parties who would report that they had seen her at a . place of doubtful repute in company with a gentleman of doubtful charac ter. There was no certainty about any of these tin..,,,. People do circulate a great many lies nowadays. But everybody agreed that the girl had gone astray in this great Northwestern city. The poor girl had no idea that' she had furnished the subject of any such amount of gossip. She was only twenty years old, and at that age one "believes only the best about everybody-. From the day she was confirmed she "had kept busy plying the needle day in and day out. She had come from the country and had been forced into this unceasing toil of the city. The years had rolled by rapidly under all "this everlasting hurry— sewing working days and at church Sundays. She had been trained as a Christian at home and had not dared to break the custom. At the shop she had a great many chums, still none that cared much, for her or that she cared much for; the others were chang ing all the time. She alone had held out. Returning from church Sundays she would often meet some of them : but then they would be togged out and dressed up so that they would not even look at her. Returning from her work, too.she would often meet some of them, but then they were nearly always ac companied by some stylish gentleman. She would sometimes hear this men tioned at the shop the next day, and the mention would draw dubious snubs and« nods from the other seamstresses, and now and then she might hear one or more heave a sigh. They did not like to; hear that one of their own class had gone astray. They knew that sooner or later they would take that road them selves—it was so hard to escape from it. • She— was her name— thought something of the sort herself, but after a different fashion. . She had reached twenty. She had be come fully developed, and had com menced to experience" a feeling that she ueyer had known before. The cramped position she, had to take while working began to tire her more than formerly. Often- now she would drop her work and. sit and stare . absent-mindedly or she, would suddenly start from her chair, because the position and her. thoughts became unendurable. . Nor would she go to her home as rapidly as she used to, but would prefer to stroll about a little on the way. She also be came forgetful about the church ser vices. One evening, as Anna was returning home from her work, she noticed a young gentleman following her. She had seen him very often before, aud had always noticed that he eyed her in a strange way; but had never thought anything about it till now. He was well proportioned and good looking, but she thought that he must be very high toned, because he wore a silk hat and lavender-colored gloves. Would he speak to her if she should slack up her gait? She did slack up almost involuntarily, and he was at her side immediately. She blushed crimson ana dared not look aside. But he spoke to her. and she overcame her bashf ulness quickly, and even had the courage to take his arm when he offered it. They took a long walk together that evening, and when at last she had to go home she permitted him to kiss ber.and promised to meet him the next evening. Anna felt really happy, and the next day she was longing all the day for evening to come. This continued from day to day during the spring and sum mer. The roses returned to her cheeks, which had been getting pale from the tiresome work. Her figure became more symmetrical, and joy beamed out of her eyes. How happy to be young and in love ! And in love as she felt that she was. How beautiful life can be made! Why think of the future when the present is such a dance on a bed of roses! No, no; live this life while it lasts. \ But the summer went by and autumn camet and the roses fled from Anna's cheeks. Her fresh appearance had left her. The good-looking young gentle man with the silk hat and lavender colored gloves, whom she had met on that evening, had also left her, and it was at the time of his departure that the roses had left her cheeks. She had dreamed and thought that she would always be happy at his side. She had loved him with all the warmth and earnestness of first love. She had surrendered herself completely to him and he had deceived her. Now she did not care for anything. She had quit her work long ago. She had tried new lovers since he left her, but it was of no use. She could not love again as she loved her first lover. .Then she gave up everything. - Poor girl, what else was there left to hen now? The scandal-mongers had stamped her as one gone astray imme diately after her first meeting the hand some young gentleman with silk hat and lavender-colored gloves— during the happiest and most innocent days of her life she met sneering and impudent looks everywhere, and soon learned that it was because of the report that she had gone astray. Good people had, on account of the gossip, shunned her, and bad people became .impudent to her. She was barred from the society of respectable people while she was yet as pure as the best of them. Can you wonder that she then surrendered herself completely to her first lover? Can you wonder that she, after his deceiving her, knowing, as she knew, the results of scandal, can you wonder that she now actually did go astray? ; ; - V; „;^ AnxE Dybfest. mWt AT ONE.

Attorney Erwin Scores Reddy and Asks Questions Reflecting Upon His Wife's Honor. _ Intimation of a New Theory by the De fense-Retold Stories of the Murder Scene. Henry Barrett wore no collar when court opened yesterday morning, and looked rougher than usual in other ways. Mr. Erwin went over all the ground that he has been over before in questioning ''Reddy," arid questioned the witness closely concerning details. Near the termination of the morning session the counsel began to lay the foundation for the theory which, by the introduction of a new witness, Julius C. Heyn, the defense will precipitate in this trial. This man Heyn, at the cor oner's inquest,- said that he came home that night' upon McKinnon's car. His bouse is near the turntable of the Cedar avenue car line. He heard shots after he got to his house, aud. in his shirt, without coat or vest, rushed toward the turntable and stopped the car as the mules were dragging it away. At the inquest Heyii swore that he heard two shots. It is now affirmed that this man will swear, when he is produced by the defense, that he heard four shots. CKKATEDOA SENSATION. About 11:30 o'clock, Mr. Erwin sud denly turned to '•Reddy," and asked: "Did you not, Henry, on the 28th of January, at the Gauit house, meet your father, and did you not say to him that while you were in jail, incarcerated for selling liquor unlawfully, Tim. your brother, had had criminal intimacy with your wife and your wife's sister, Chloe Betts. Did you not then say to him, in answed to his question as to why you had put up such a horrible game upon your brothers, that it did not matter since all the property had gone to them; and then, did you not tell your father that there was one witness " which the state could not buy that would, if brought forward, be ot the greatest importance to the defense?" Like a flash Henry half arose in his seat, and glaring at Erwin like a lion at bay, shouted: "I want it understood that I will bear no questions such as this, nor will I have my wife and her sister brought into this trial." Mr. Erwin (to the court)— l should like to have an answer, your honor. Judge Lochren— must answer the question. "I did not tell my father anything of the kind," answered Henry. "You lie!" shouted Frank Barrett, the oldest brother, growing white in the face. Confusion reigned for a moment, then Judge Lochren addressed the man who had uttered the words, saying: "If there is any repetition of any such thing as this the perpetrator will be punished with a degree of severity which will certainly be effective." Henry made the following statement in regard to the interview held with his father at the Gault house, Jan. 28: "My father came to me and said that he wanted me if I could to help out poor Pete; that I had destroyed all Tim's hopes, and he wanted me at least to be merciful to Pete. He said that he could not believe that I would have been the one to divulge as I had the secrets of the crime, and that more would he have looked for it from the others. He told me that there was a law in the state of Nebraska, as well as in Minnesota, and that even should I go free here, after the state had finished with me, 1 would be abandoned by the prosecutors, and that he and the rest of the family would, see that I was held and punished for an other crime. He asked me if I would. see Mr.Erwin and I said that I would ; as far as I knew I had no objections to an interview with Mr. Erwin." . IX THE AFTKIiXOOX. The crowd was as dense as ever in the corridors when the court room doors were opened a few moments before 2 o'clock. Among those who gained ad mission were a large number of ladies, many of them young. Mr. and Mrs. Barrett came into the room at five min utes before 2, and at once took the seats that they have occupied during all the trial. As soon as they were seated Mrs. Gammers, "the mysterious woman,"who caused so much remark at Tim's trial, entered and took a seat just behind Mrs. Barrett. The two began sobbing vio lently. Peter and his father entered into conversation, which did not end until court was called to order. Just before Judge Lochren ascended to the bench the "mysterious woman" left. During the noon hour "Reddy" occu pied a seat near the fire, with an over coat over his shoulders. didn't know itetn. On the opening of the court in the afternoon Mr. Davis resumed the redi rect examination. The first question he asked was in relation to J. C. Heyn, whom the defense will bring forward to prove that four shots were fired at the time of the murder and that three men entered the Cedar avenue entrance of Layman's cemetery. "Do you know Mr. 'Heyn?" asked Mr. Davis. "No, I do not," answered "Reddy." -Then followed a long story in regard to the ownership of the place at 2830 Fort avenue, and as to who answered to the charge of keeping a "blind pig" there. "I cannot tell whether the boys were friendly toward me or not when they were at my house," said Henry, in an swer to a question by Mr. Davis, "but I do know that we did have several little troubles. They were all small ones and never amounted to anything. The trouble between myself and Peter was not because my mother favored him above me. Neither was it In relation to her money." Mr. Davis wanted Henry to state what the conversation was when he (Mr. Davis) told him not to visit his father at the Gault house a second time, but Mr. Erwin objected, and the objection was sustained. "Reddy" did not know at whose sug gestion Chloe Belts went to Waconia with himself and wife, but said he thought she went along because his wife was about to be confined. "Sho is still at my house," continued Henry, "and is taking care of my wife." "Did you ever tell anyone else besides Mrs. Jamison and myself anything in re gard to this murder?" asked Mr. Davis. "No, sir, I did not," replied "Reddy" firmly. "I never told anyone else any thing in regard to the matter. And no one in authority ever told me anything to swear to in this or on the previous trial." "Mr. Gorman, the deputy sheriff, has been with me all the timo since I was first taken into custody," continued "Reddy." "Guess that must bo so," remarked Mr. Davis, "as John Bvrnes keeps nod ding his head and confirms the state ment." "What was the occasion of your shooting at your father once?" WHY HE SHOT HIS FATHER. "Well, once I and my barkeeper had some words and my father interfered, so I shot him. At another time I had trouble with my father and I put him out of the saloon Into the hall. But this did not bring about any ill feeling between my father and myself." The troubles of the family were again brought out by Mr. Davis, and , "Reddy" went into the smallest details of each row. It was painful to him, evidently, as he gave his testimony slowly and with apparent reluctance. Mr. Davis took up the' points that 'were brought out on the trial yesterday, and went over them all again.- The point in regard to the broken billiard •cue was dwelt' upon, very closely, but nothing new was drawn from "Reddy." In response to the question as to why lie changed > his name at Waconia, "Reddy" replied it was because he did > not want anyone to know - who he was. "Did you tell your brothers you were going to testify against them?" asked Mr. Erwin. "No, sir. I did not hide my name he cause 1 was afraid it would be proved I was one of the murderers." Mr. Erwin interrupted the witness with another question, and got in re ply: "If you will keep your mouth shut a moment, Mr. Erwin, I will answer your question. 1 did not suppose there was any secrecy in keeping me there, as it was only done to save me from unpleas ant interviews. Tim had a pretty good chance of knowing what my testimony would he, and there was also considera ble published in the various papers. I had talked with reporters in regard to the case before the tiial. But this mat ter was withheld until my testimony had been given." "Was Tim given any opportunity of knowing what you would swear to be fore you went on the stand?" "He was. I had an Interview with him at tin; central police station. Tim and 1 were in the cell. There were offi cers outside. The county attorney nor his assistant were not present." "Were you not sent in for the pur pose of getting Tim to tell something?!? "Well, I don't wish to tell for what purpose I went in to see Tim." Mr. Erwin wanted the court to make Henry tell, as he desired to show, lie said, that Henry had only gone into the cell for the purpose of entrapping Tim into a confession. "He does not come here to simply ease his conscience," continued Mr. Erwin, "but lie conies here to get revenge on his brothers, and for that purpose he en tered Tim's cell, with detectives on the outside to hear what Tim would say, so that his (Henry's) story might be corrob orated. I claim it as my right to know why this man went into his brother's cell." did NOT have to ANSWEIt. Mr. Davis objected, and then Mr. Er win roasted "Ileddj '* most unmercifully; calling him a "detective informer" and other names until he was checked by the court. During the discussion of the point "Reddy" sat with folded arms, j gazing steadily at Mr. Erwin, his face wearing a troubled look. Judge Loch ren decided that the question had no bearing upon the trial of Peter, while it would have had in the trial of Tim. Mr. Erwin again demanded that the county attorney produce the written confession made by Henry, but the court refused to grant the demand. "Where did you get the money with which you paid your line when you se cured your release from the 'county jail?" asked Mr. Erwin. "Well, 1 had all of it, but borrowed $3.75 from Deputy Sheriff Johnson to make up a slight discrepancy." This ended the examination of Henry, and a sigh of relief went up from the audience as the strange man stepped down from the witness stand and left the court room. Lottie Welch was the next witness called. She went on the stand with a smile and a simper. She lived, during July, she said, in the next house to the Barrett place. Her story was a repeti tion of the one told at Tim's trial. She had seen the three boys leave the house on the evening of July 26, she said, and went on and told all she knew in regard to the matter. Mr. Erwin endeavored to make the witness state that she was mistaken in saying she had seen the boys leave the house, but failed. John McKinnon was recalled and re peated what he had told when he was first sworn in this trial. He was driving a street car on the night of the murder, and had seen three men standing by the car tracks near the Hastings & Dakota tracks at a late hour. He told of strik ing planks on the track, and having his car thrown off, and of meeting Tollef son with his car and getting him to help lift the car back on the track again. Then followed the story of finding Tol lefson's car with a man standing in the doorway. He said after his car had been thrown from the tracks and he had gone back to the barn he felt alarmed for Tollefson's safety because it was an unusual thing to see'men standing near the tracks at that time of night, and be sides his suspicions that something was wrong, he having his car thrown off by planks placed on the tracks. Then again the boys all felt somewhat afraid of the extension at night. J. C. Heyn. was the man, he said, who was standing :in the door of the car when it came along with Tollefson's dead body. Mr. , Erwiu tried in every way to shake this man's testimony, but failed at every point. The witness gave A GRAPHIC DESCKIPTIOX of the finding of the body of the mur dered man, and said he had not looked for any blood on the car. He would have seen it, he thought, if there was any on the car. When the body of Tollefson was found, McKinnon con tinued, there was a colored man named Mitchell present. Mr. Erwin had a subpoena issued for him. A subpoena was also issued for a Mr. Despar, who was said to know something about the case. Then followed a lot of testimony relative to how the turntable, at which Tollefson was killed, worked, the ap parent idea being, from Mr. Erwin's questions, to make it appear that there were five or six persons at the turn table, instead of four. This closed Mc- Kinnon's testimony, and court ad journed until Monday morning. The Country Maid's Ticket. Pittsburg Press. very pretty country maiden was just in the act of boarding a train at the union station this morning when a Penn sylvania railroad brakeman stretched forth his strong right arm and said: "Please let me see your ticket." The lady turned red in the face, and with an innocent smile answered: "I don't like to— but— but— l have a ticket, sir." "Well, well ; you must let me see your ticket, and don't keep other passengers waiting," remarked the brakeman, a lit tle impatiently. The young lady placed her foot on the step of the car and drew out from one of her black hose a coupon ticket almost a half yard lone." " There it is, sir," said she, with fal tering voice. The brakemau gave the ticket a hasty glance, assisted the young woman to the car platform, raised his hat in a po lite bow, and was left to blush alone, while the other railroad boys laughed at his expense. "I was a brute," he said. ■■ •— A President Pays His Fare. Pittsburg Commercial. President John Newell, of the Pitts burg & I^ake Erie railroad, and Chaun cey Andrews left last night for their homes. When Mr. Newell arrived here on Sunday he came from New York. When he got on the Pennsylvania rail road -.train he pulled out his annual pass, but was surprised to find it was dated 1887. He forgot to have it re newed, and the heartless conductor re fused' to honor it. Mr. Newell, in a good-natured way, said, "Rules are rules," and. putting his hand in his pocket, paid his fare. The money will probably be returned to him. mm Presto! 8.H.D.&C0. Syndicate Block.
