Lively Times Are Anticipated

.Lively Times Forecast for To-Day's
[C Republican Convention.
The Republicans of Hennepin county
•will assemble in convention this morn
ing to choose delegates to the state and
district conventions. Though it will be
what is usually considered an important
convention, there are certain elements
Which go to make this one a particu
larly lively, if not sensational, one. If
half of the stories they relate upon
each other are true, the Re
publican eaucusses of Saturday
night were one mass of corruption
and the new law utterly disregarded. A
great amount of bitterness was engen
dered, and all of it will crop out in force
today. Half a dozen of the oratoiical
shoulder-hitters of the party are donning
their war paint and conning over
-speeches calculated to knock their
opponents into the middle of next week.
The struggle is a purely per
sonal one; that is to say, noth
ing vital is involved, but one
might judge, from the tierce language
and bitter invective that the life and
welfare of the nation depends upon the
outcome Of to-day's convention. As the
principal event of the caucuses was the
strife between W. 11. Eustis and 11. B.
Langdon, in the Sixth precinct of the
Fourth ward, that struggle has s'nce
been the principal topic of conversa
tion, it is charged by the anti-Eustis
men that the redoubted William Henry
packed the caucus with colored voters
from other precincts, which is a misde
meanor under the new law. It is said
Eustic corralled the West hotel waiters,
loaded 'em down with Eustis ballots,
and fired them into the caucus until the
opposition was snowed under. The
Eustis wing pronounces this a base
canard, and solemnly avers these col
ored voters all live in the Sixth precinct
and are entitled to vote there. It is
more than likely that a contesting dele
gation will appear to-day and clamor
for admission.
The anti-Blame people have begun to
loom up in their strength and denounce
the methods by which the Blainiacs
achieved their "sweeping victory."
They declare the failure to call many of
the caucuses was intentional, it being
understood all the time the Blame crowd
was to show up and elect the delegates.
It is r.lso asserted that the "victory" is
not so sweeping, after all, and when
the country districts came in and all
noses are counted, the Blame henchmen
will have to struggle hard for a major
ity. The Langdon and Smith men are
inclined to refer sneeringly and with
withering sarcasm to the "Eustis vic
tory," all of which presages some de
velopment to-day. It is conceded it will
be a red-hot convention, being full of
impassioned oratory, and that it will be
good to be there.
The Board of Trade Resolutions
on the Slow Post office Work.
At the meeting of the board of trade
yesterday morning the following resolu
tion, introduced by Maj. Bassett, was
unanimously adopted: Whereas, The
federal government did some four or
live years ago make an appropriation to
build in this city a postoilice building
for the better accommodation of the
rapidly increasing business; and
whereas, as about three years have
passed away since the building then oc
cupied as a postoffice was destroyed by
fire, forcing the said office into other
and more inconvenient quarters, with
insufficient room, badly lighted and
ventilated; and whereas, three years
has already been spent in the construc
tion of the said building, which might
have been completed, in the opinion of
this board, in one year, and thereby
saved a large sum paid for rent, and the
office had comfortable quarters and
the people better service; and
whereas, for the last three
years, during the time work has
nominally been in progress the two
streets opposite the new building have
been obstructed by material used in the
building, greatly to the annoyance of
the business transacted thereon, and
endangering the lives of people who
use the said streets, and in the judg
ment of this board should the work be
continued in the same maimer at least
two years more will pass away before
the building will be fit for use;
Now, therefore, we, as members of the
board of trade and citizens of the city
of Minneapolis, desire to say that in
our opinion such delays in the construc
tion of said building are entirely inex
cusable, if not criminal, and some per
son or persons arc responsible for the
inconvenience we are subjected to for
the want of the use of the building and
tin' expense to which the government is
subjected; and, be it further
Resolved, That a copy of these reso
lutions be forwarded to our senators
and members with an urgent request
that they call the attention of the proper
officers to the subject, with a view of
having this work pushed to a speedy

after the first Monday of each month

however, be called by the president.
Civilization Is Downing Intemper
ance—Ministerial Symposiums.
At the meeting of the liberal clergy
men yesterday morning Rev. L. G.
Powers read an interesting paper on
"Social Revolution and Temperance."
The complicated machinery of the pres
ent day and the advanced civilization
of the present century were doing much
to prevent drunkenness, he said, as no
one would employ a drinking man to
run an engine. Our great men are no
longer drinking men as they were in
older times, for society is not quite so
ready to receive a drinking man as it
was fifty or ICO years ago. Uien the art
of knowing how to spend money to the
best advantage instead of letting it
go for drink is just being learned and
is doing much to drive out intemper
ance. A discussion followed, in which
Rabbi lliowizi said that in his opinion
bad cooking and unpleasant homes did
much toward driving men to drink.
Rev. Dr. Tuttle thought the only way
to rid the world of intemperance was to
totally banish liquor. He wanted to see
every drop of the stuff destroyed, but
as this could not be done, he would like
to see high license.
Rev. N. W. Jordan addressed the
Methodist ministers yesterday afternoon
on "Proper Amusements for the Fam
ily." Cards allowed in the family were
hurtful, he said, as in nine cases out of
ten it led the children to gambling. He
condemned theaters, base ball, and the
like, and thought there would be less
trouble if children were taught to play
authors, chess and checkers more.
Music was also a good thing to keep the
boys at home, and he favored the idea
of having a piano and other musical in
struments in every home.
He Thinks the Committee Should
Know What Is Going On.
"As a party measure I would not ap
prove the proposed plan of a sewer su
perintendent," said Aid. John Kerr,yes
terday, "but as a matter of great public
necessity I* am convinced it is the right
thing to do. lam going to introduce ray
ordinance at Friday's meeting and let
it stand or fall on its merits." The or
dinance, which lias occasioned so much
discussion, is as follows:
"The committee on sewers of the city
council, in connection with the city en
gineer, shall have immediate control
and management of everything pertain
ing to the system of sewers and drain
age in the city of Minneapolis. They
shall appoint all such officers and em
ployes as they may deem necessary, and
do all things which may be necessary
for the proper maintenance or extension
of the system of sewers in said city, sub
ject to the confirmation of the city coun
"The city engineer shall do such pre
liminary work therein as is now pro
vided for by charter. There shall also
be appointed a proper person as super
intendent of sewers, who shall have the
general supervision of the work under
the direction of said committee on
sewers and said city engineer, both in
the care and maintenance of sewers in
use, and in the construction of such new
sewers as may be ordered by the city
council. He shall be responsible for all
property entrusted to his care, and see
that all labor performed and all mate
rials furnished for said sewers are of
the kind and quality required by said
committee on sewers and said city en
gineer. He shall have general charge
of all persons employed by said commit
tee and city engineer, and keep a proper
record of time and rate of compensa
tion. He shall not be interested in any
job or contract, or in any piece of work
pertaining to said sewers, and shall
give such a bond as may be prescribed
by the city council for the faithful per
formance .of his duties."
"Did not the city attorney say this
conflicted with the charter?"
"Yes, he said it took prerogatives
from the city engineer, but did not say
how it did. He proposed an ordinance
on the same subject, but it is even
stronger than this."
The other ordinance creates a superin
tendent of labor and places him in
charge of all work of public improve- .
"I look on this ordinance (Smith's) as
creating an absolute one-man power."
continued Aid. Kerr, . "and would not
support it. My plan is simplvto give
the sewer committee charge of its own
department, so it may know what is
going on and how much it is costing.
The city engineer has too much to do as
it is. No, the Democratic caucus has
not passed on this ordinance. it should
go through on its merits, and I think
some of the Republicans will vote
for it."
Local Talent Presents "Pinafore"
Quite Successfully.
The revival of "Pinafore" at the Peo
ple's theater by local talent drew out an
audience that fairly filled the house.
The rise of the curtain discovered an
admirable stage setting, probably the
best ever seen here, for that delightful
but time-worn opera. Considering all
those facts to be taken in connection
with an amateur company and a first
night, the opera went off exceedingly
well. The musical part was far supertax
to the dramatic work, which was stiff and
hesitating, but which will improve as
the week grows. There was a" uncer
tainty that was the result of stage
nervousness, but which will disappear
with practice. The principal drawback
was in the fact that the audience was
largely composed of friends of the per
formers and they insisted on an encore
to everything, so that it was long after
11 o'clock before the performance
ended. If this is to be the case the
singers should arrange certain encore
parts so as not to be compelled to sing
over the entire part.
The individual roles were well taken.
Among the ladies. Miss Evelyn Burt, as
Buttercup, was . the most taking and
was a charming piece of work all
around. Miss Williams sang the part
of Josephine quite artistically and Miss
Olive Fremstad made a pretty picture
as Hebe. Prof. Porter displayed the
best voice as Cant. Corcoran, Mr. Heath's
Rackstraw being splendid, from a
musical standpoint, though his play
ing was marred by nervousness. The
Sir Joseph of Mr. Harkins was fair all
around without being remarkable. F.
M. Howard was good as Dick Deadeye,
and E. P. Loye quite pleasing as Bob
Undoubtedly the opera will go off more
smoothly and successfully to-night and
improve steadily as the week progresses.
"Pinafore" still retains its charm and is
heard with as much pleasure as ever.
The Police Will Look Into a Hos
pital Affair.
A few days ago two women, claiming
to be residents of Minneapolis and mem
bers of the church of the Immaculate
Conception, visited the Catholic orphan
asylum at St. Paul and informed Mother
Josephine that they wanted to adopt
one child each. They told a very
plausible story, and finally secured two
girl babies, one five months and the other
seven months of age. Before leaving
the home they promised that as soon
as they returned to Minneapolis they
would have Father McGolrick write to
the mother superior, telling her that
everything was all right. They were
given the children on this condition.
The mother up to yesterday morning
had received no letter, and becoming
suspicious, placed the matter in the
hands of the Minneapolis police, who
found the children yesterday and re
turned them to the Orphan's home. The
affair will be fully investigated.
An Elevated Electric Railroad
With a Curious Route.
At the meeting of the council commit
tee on ordinances yesterday a communi
cation was received from the Enos
Electric Railway company asking for
the passage of an ordinance for a right
of-way from the intersection of Division
street and the city limits in North Min
neapolis, running west on Division
street to Ninth street, to Central ave

the line to St. Paul, thus connecting

in the city for transportation is not to
exceed 10 cents and to St. Paul 15 cents.
It was stated that representatives
would appear at an early date and ex

A Democratic Turnout.
The Samuel J. Tilden club met last
evening at Avery's hall in the Eighth
ward. The committee on constitution
and by-laws, which was expected to re
port, was allowed until next Monday
evening to make some changes'in the
by-laws. Several of the members pres
ent made addresses and a committee con
sisting of George Saunders, W. T. Smith
and Thomas Leftwich were appointed
to make arrangements for securing
speakers to address the club on the
issues of the day. The secretary was
instructed to procure a transparency
and have it placed in front of the hall,
to be lighted every Monday evening
that the club has a meeting. There was
a good turnout and the addresses were
listened to with interest.

Though They Loudly Proclaim Their
A Young Han Charged With Running
Oil a Child as a Museum
Albert Beadle and little Maggie
Thompson, the midget, whom he is ac
cused of abducting from her home in
West St. Paul, were arrested in Minne
apolis yesterday by Patrolman Wade.
Mrs. Abigail Thompson, the mother
of the girl, resides at 240 East Fillmore
street, and up to last Wednesday even
ing Beadle was employed by her as a
teamster. On that evening he and Mag
gie disappeared, and the mother im
mediately swore out a warrant for
Beadle's arrest, charging him with ab
ducting the girl. She alleges that Bea
dle had suggested to her that she allow
Maggie to exhibit herself in some dime
museum and make money as "the only
genuine midget." When she refused to
listen to any such scheme, Beadle made
the same proposition to Maggie, and
when Beadle and Maggie disappeared
Mrs. Thompson felt sure . that Beadle
had abducted her so as to get her into a
dime museum.
Young Beadle who is fairly good look
ing, and apparently well educated, did
not appear greatly despondent over be
ing behind the bars. "The idea," said
he, "that I abducted the girl to place
her in a dime museum so as to make
money is the most absurd thing I ever
heard of in my life. I took her away
from her home— rather she went
away with me— because it was
the only tiling to do. She was
treated most brutally at home, her
mother whipping her frequently, Why,
it was only the first of last week that
Mrs. Thompson's brother took Maggie
by the throat
most unmercifully. It was hard to see
the little girl suffer the way
she did, so we both came away
together. Since we left St. Paul
I have been working for a lawyer
named White, and have been paying the
girl's board at a house out on Stevens
avenue. We have not called ourselves
man and wife, and God knows that I
never have entertained one wrong
thought toward the noble little girl."
Maggie was taking off her shoes in her
cell when found. She is a handsome
little thing, with a well-rounded body,
a wreath of golden hair and a pair of
wonderful eyes. She was as cheerful
as could be expected under the circum
stances, and told her story readily.
"Mr. Beadle did not abduct me," said
she, "I went with him willingly, for the
reason that 1 could live at home no
longer. My mother and her brother
beat me all the time and made me do
every bit of housework, when I was not
able to do it. I have had no idea of go
ing on the stage or anything of that
sort. My only idea in leaving home with
Mr. Beadle was to escape being
whipped. My age? Weil, I don't
know exactly. My mother— least I
suppose she is my mother— told me
so many different stories that I do not
know what to believe. One time sue
said I was fifteen years old, and then
again she has said I am eigh
teen. So you see it is hard for
me to tell accurately. Since
coming here Mr. Beadle has been pay
ing my board, but there has been
nothing wrong between us. He has sim
ply been good and kind to me,and is the
best friend I have in this world. Ido
not want to go home again, because I
do not want to be whipped all the time.
If there was any reason for beating me
I would not say anything."
Patrolman Wade found the two board
ing at a residence out on Stevens ave
nue. He recognized the girl by a de
scription sent up from St. Paul, and
placed the pair under arrest. They
made no fuss when taken into custody,
and Beadle signified his willingness to
stand any blame that might attach to
him for his course in the matter.

In the Girl's Strike—Some Light
Ahead—Co-Operative Work Dis
The strikers from Shotwell, Clerihew
& Lothman's turned out in full force
yesterday afternoon. The grievance
committee had no special news to re
port. One of the girls claimed that a
man who asked for admission was a
cutter employed by the firm, and that
he came to propose measures of arbitra
tion. He was not admitted to the meet
ing, but held a conference with the
chairman outside, as the result of which
a special meeting is announced for
Wednesday afternoon. It is whispered
that the firm will send some one
who will be authorized to settle the
matter. The schedule of prices again
came up for discussion, the girls stub
bornly refusing to change their de
man's. A few finishers and others
who did not walk out with the strikers
might be noticed among the crowd yes-*
terday. They told the girls that they
were put on machine work when the
others left, and, finding there was no
money in it, they concluded to join the
strikers, One of them said: "You just
ought to see how clean the shop is now.
It's been painted and kalsomined, the
windows all sinned up and new blinds
put on. It'll be a fine place to work in
after this."
i Several prominent K. of L, men were
present and spoke in favor of the new
boarding home, not urging that the
girls take up the matter" now, but pro
posing it for future consideration. Co
operation was long and earnestly dis
cussed. It seems that organized labor
could furnish capital to start a co-oper
ative overall factory, by this means giv
ing the girls work, and the demand for
such goods among the laboring element
would supply ample patronage. The
girls were favorably impressed by the
proposition, but preferred to take no
definite action in the matter until after
Wednesday's meeting.
Resolutions tendering financial aid
from the Teamsters' Protective associa
tion were read and approved. After
the usual unanimous pledge to stand by
each other till the end, the meeting ad
journed until Wednesday at 2 p. m. ..-';: ';■
"Over the Garden Wall". Plays to
a Large House— Notes.
Mr. and Mrs. George S. Knight opened
their engagement to a large house at
the Grand Opera house last night. :
"Over the Garden Wall," that familiar
and rollicking farce, was the bill, and it
was given with a dash and vim that
brought out all the enthusiasm
of the audience. Mr. Knight, as
a German dialect comedian,"" stands
pre-eminent for artistic work, and lie is
ably seconded by his wife, a most
charming vocalist. John Dyllyn, actor
and singer, is a member of the com
pany, and his songs were heartily en
cored. The engagement will be con
tinued two nights, with Wednesday

Open Air Concerts. WW i
There is a fair prospect that Minne*- •

series of open air concerts this summer I
at Central park. Prof. Frank Dan/..
Jr., the leader of the Danz band, is now
passing a petition around for contribu- i
tions for the purpose, and the situation
looks very favorable. Last year there
were no concerts and the music-loving
fraternity were at loss for amusement on
the pleasant summer evenings. The
gatherings at the park during the con
certs in 1886 were very large, and give
reason to the belief that they were
highly appreciated and that the public
demands such amusement for recrea
tion. It is hoped that all interested in
concerts will contribute liberally, as a
sufficient amount has got to be guaran

The members of the Minneapolis gymna
sium held a well attended meeting last even
ing, to consider the plan of Prof. Duplessis
to turn the gymnasium over to the members
to be run on an improved plan. He detailed
the plan at length and found it favorably re
ceived. The idea is to have the members
take hold and with the new interest born of
proprietorship, push it to still greater suc
cess. After a number of expressions of
opinion an adjournment until Friday was
& Ride of Over 2,000 Feet in Less
Than One Minute. ;
Of Tobogganing Through Space in an
'•} Upholstered Perambu- .
!."/' lator. . .
i A visitor to the old Washington rink
would be agreeably 'surprised to note
now completely changed is the interior
since the palmy days when pugilistic
encounters attracted the thousands of
suckers at $2 per head within
its- spacious walls. The new attrac
tion is one justly entitled to the
recognition of an appreciative public,
and such it will receive is the prediction
or*, the Globe. It is a toboggan slide
three times and a half around the build
ing, which signifies a distance of over
one-third of a mile. The slide,
or run-way, is built in a
most substantial manner after the
principle of a spriirg board, with
steep descents and sharp curves, which
gives great momentum to the car in
which you ride. The cars are six in
number, with two seats each, and finely
upholstered. You seat yourself in one
ot them and are hoisted by a steam ele
vator up about thirty-two feet, when
the car by an automatic device starts
off on its headlong course around enrves,
down the Niagara and Minnehaha
rails, through the Hoosac tunnel and
along a level track to the starting place,
l he speed is such that you traverse the
distance of over 2,000 feet in less than
sixty seconds, but, notwithstanding the
rapidity with which you appar
ently fly through space, no un
pleasant feeling arises, while it
is exhilarating and reminds one
of* the , gentle zephyrs that whistles
through their whiskers on a blizzardy
ay m winter. As the car shoots down
the falls and through the dark tunnel
with the speed of the wind the occu
pants invariably duck their heads in
anticipation of striking some obstruc
tion. But the slide is entirely
free from any danger, and therein
lies its chief merit, while the
strain is so nicely distributed as not to
be felt at all. It is the only thing of
the kind west of Massachusetts, and is
owned by R. A. Niblock, of Haverhill,
Mass., and under the management of
"Brownie" Wallace, the whilom
manager of the rink in the days
of yore. The body of the house
is fitted up in first-class shape
for roller skating, while 1,000 pair of
skates are kept in stock for sale or rent.
Ihe building is lighted by six large arc
and twenty-four incandescent electric
lamps, which will throw a flood of daz
zling light into the remotest corner.
Millard & Thyle's well-known baud
will discourse their sweetest music day
and evening, and the opening, this
( I uesday) evening, will be one of the
greatest events of the season. Every
body wants to go and fully realize what
has been introduced for their pleasure
and profit.
A Case of Existing, But Not Liv
ing, Really.
Some persons may have noticed in the
vicinity of the Salvation Army head
quarters a quaint, dwarfed little woman,
abput three and a half feet high. Her
life is an odd one. She is a lifeless
looking object, and one would judge her
to be about as old as Rider Haggard's
"She." She has considerable vanity
yet, however, for she oowders her face
and wears a gay bonnet bedecked with
bright ribbons, which some one cave
her. Her present husband, her second,
is a shiftless character. He provides
her with about 25 cents a week and di
vides his time between the saloons,
sawing wood and First "street. They
live in an upper garret in Northeast
Minneapolis, which is reached by going
up an outside stairway that threatens
every moment 'to fall to pieces. The
house is small and unroofed. The,
room where they live is dingy and close
and covered with rough clapboards. Her
sou by her first husband is in an insane
asylum. This son was smart and tal
ented. At one time he carried papers,
and was for years the mainstay of the
family. But now this last support of
the quaint, little woman is gone,
and she waits and watches in
vain for his coming. How they
manage to live is a mystery! An ad
joining wood-pile furnishes them with
fuel. Her furniture consists of her bed,
an old cook stove and stand. --Her
clothes are given to her. She washes
and scrubs for her tea and coffee. She
is a quiet, loving, neglected creature
who would not do any one harm for the
world. Her husband , remains away
from their quarters sometimes many
nights in succession.
Friendless aud aimless she wanders along
In the midst of the city, among the gay
Look 1 And then think of her sorrows and
Give to her aid as onward you go.
