MILL CITY MATTERS.
Detectives Quinlan and King Convicted of Compound ing' a Crime. They Must Spend Three Months in Jail and Pay $250 Each. Another Meeting of the Girl Strikers—The Pence Opera Closed. Date of the Democratic Con vention—A Woman Killed hy an Elevator. SOMEWHAT SENSATIONAL. Quinlan and King Convicted and Col well Held for Perjury. There was a buzz of excitement about the city last evening when it was an nounced that Quinlan and King.the late detective firm, had been convicted of compounding a crime and sentenced to pay a fine of $250 each and serve a term of three months in the county jail. The particulars of the case are generally known as these: The de tectives were employed by the county to ferret out unlicensed saloons, and as the result quite a number of indictments were returned against saloonkeepers throughout the county; but when their trials came on most of the cases were dismissed for want of evidence, it appearing that the agents of the detect ives had "mixed up" their notes and could not make the matter correspond to the man. County Attorney Davis was very wroth over it and got satisfac tion when Quinlan and King were in dicted for compounding a crime. It seems that the feeling between these de tectives and the city police over the old monkey wrench case was at the bottom of the discovery, and that Capt. Mike Hoy and Supt. Heim were largely In strumental in working up the testimony which resulted in yesterday's convic tion. The case chosen is that of a man named Beiswinger, a saloonkeeper at Hassan, who was indicted on evidence furnished the grand jury by Jack Colwell. one of Quin lan _ King's detectives, but who told in the trial that he had no evidence against the accused. The state devel oped the fact that Quinlan and King met Beiswinger at the Bodega saloon and offered to arrange the mix of evi dence for (100. Beiswinger borrowed some of the amount from Jack Walker and pai lit over. When the investiga tion began, a receipt was fixed up as though Beiswinger had paid the $100 to John T. Byrnes for legal services and he was told to so state to the grand jury. " This all came out in the trial of tlie Case yesterday, which was full of inter est, not to say sensation. Jack Colwell was put on the stand and virtually ad mitted having told a story to the grand jury and then denied all knowledge of it on the witness stand. County Attor ney Davis, black as a thunder cloud, de manded a bench warrant for his arrest as a self-confessed perjurer. Judge Holhns, the attorney for the defense, attempted to interpolate an objection, but was crushed by Judge Hicks, who refused to hear him. and ordered Col well taken into custody. He was re leased later upon furnishing bonds to the extent of $1,000. Quinlan ami King both testified for the defense and both denied all knowl edge of the affair. The former said all business was done through his book keeper, and he knew nothing person ally. King admitted having gone with Colwell to the Bodego, bnt said he had told the county attorney repeatedly there was a mistake, and the man could not be convicted. "That was not until he had been ar raigned, was it?" "No, sir." At this point a curious scene oc .nrred. JudgeHollins placed the county attorney on the stand, and wanted to know it he was present in the grand jury room when Quinlan and King were indicted. Davis refused to answer, on the ground that he was a public officer, Hollins appealed to the court and Judge Hicks acknowledged himself puz zled, but finally he said he would give the defense the benefit of the doubt and order the witness to answer. Davis de clined and Hollins wanted him punished for contempt. Once more the court was puzzled how to act, when a happy thought dawned, lie happened to see a member of that grand jury in the court room and immediately ruled that Davis need not answer, as a more competent witness was present. Assistant Jamison was then called and the scene was re peated. It was evidently the intention of the defense to show up by what testi mony the indictment had been secured. In rebuttal, Beiswenger was recalled and identified a receipt handed him, which was as follows: Minneapolis, .linn., Oct. 20, 1887.—Re ceived from G. Bei-wenger to sum of one hundred dollar*. ($100), for which I agree to defend the said Beiswenger and William Bomgaard on two indictments for selling liquor without license. John T. Byrnes, This, he said, was given him in Feb ruary, ISSB, though dated October, 1887. It was given him in Byrnes' office, with instructions to tell the grand jury he paid the money as attorney fees, but he had gone before that body and told the whole truth. This ended the testimony, and Hie ease was argued and submitted. A verdict of guilty was returned, and the court imposed a fine of $250 and a term of three months' imprisonment, with six months longer if the tine was not paid. A stay of thirty days was ob tained, and the defendants gave bond in the sum of $3,000 each. A BOYCOTT IMMINENT. The Striking Machine Girls Will Make But One More Effort. It rained very hard yesterday after noon, but, nevertheless, the striking machine girls who recently left the em ployment of Shot well, Clerihew & Loth man were present at the meeting held at the hall, 250 First avenue south, to canvass the situation. The committee reported that the firm had given no sign of making any concessions, and had not shown a disposition to even arbi trate the difficulties. Lists showing the wages paid at similar establishments in St. Paul and Minneapolis were exam ined, with which the wages the girls ask for generally conform. It was agreed that one more effort, and the las .should be made to induce the firm to arbitrate, and to this end the committee was in structed to visit the firm Friday and make one more offer. The result is to be reported at a meeting to be held Saturday afternoon. In the event of the firm's refusal to come to time, or at least show an inclination to adjust mat ters upon some equitable basis, the strike will begin in earnest and the labor organizations and societies which have proffered aid will be called upon. The result will in all probability be an or ganized boycott against the firm's goods both in the city and wherever sold, ex tending to dealers and people who use them. The girls say they are in a con dition to withstand a long siege. One hundred have homes they can go to. Over fifty can get work immediately and only thirty stand in need of aid, and these can be easily provided for. Al though there are funds already on hand, there have been but few applications for held so far. After Saturday's meeting, if the firm does not yield, meetings will be held evenings Instead of afternoons, so as not to interfere with the girls who ob tain work. Gov. Swineford. Gov. Swineford, of Alaska, is in the city and was last evening entertained at the West hotel by Mayor Ames, C. M. - ootc and others. He will visit the soldiers' home this afternoon in com pany with Mayor Ames, leaving for Alaska in the evening. ONE THEATER LESS. The Pence Succumbs to the Pres sure — Dramatic Notes. .YY* The lights were out in Pence opera house last nighty and it developed that this well known place of amusement had been quietly closed. It had been surmised for some time that this would occur before the grass was green, but the attendance has been so light luring the past few weeks that the demise at tracted but little attention. Members of the stock company have been short on salaries, for some time, and are con siderable losers. DRAMATIC NOTES. In spite of the rain the People's theater was filled nearly to its full ca pacityjlast evening. when' "l _nafore"was given a most pleasing production. The members of the company are constantly improving in their several parts, and the audience was very enthusiastic last evening. •'She" will be in Minneapolis for three nights, following Robert Mantell at the ('rand. "She" is a spectacle, tin story taken from the romance of the same name. "The Bunch of Keys" opens at the Grand to-night. The farce will be pre sented with the original cast, and new specialties will be introduced. Manager Sterling wishes the report corrected that he is in any way inter ested in the projected summer garden at Lake Calhoun. The sale of seats for Robert Mantell's engagement opens Friday at the Grand box oflice. COUNTY DEMOCRACY. The Convention on May 12 and Primaries on May 9. The Democratic county committee is not quite ready to make its formal call for the convention, as some of the pre cinct inspectors have not been ap pointed. The date originally agreed upon for the convention was May 3, which will be to-morrow, but it has necessarily been postponed, and will now be held on Saturday, May 12. at noon. The primaries will be held on the evening of May 9, Wednesday, and it is the intention to rigidly observe the new law. The call wiil be issued in a day or two and will contain all neces sary and desirable information. The call for the convention and primaries is published in another col umn. Every voter should read and post himself, and inspectors should take notice and govern themselves accord ingly. FELL TO HER DEATH. Fatal Result of Trying to Run a Hotel Elevator. The second elevator accident at the West hotel occurred yesterday noon, when Miss May Olson, one of the kitch en girls, lost her life by falling down an elevator shaft. A few minutes be fore 12 o'clock Mary was down in the storeroom talking with the steward. In her hurry to get back to the kitchen she got into the freight ele vator, which stood open. The elevator man was not present and the girl at tempted to run the elevator herself. She got it started all right, but when she came to the second floor, on which is the kitchen, she. tried to stop it, but could not. The girl then became frightened, and, as the elevator passed the door, threw it open and attempted to jump out. in some way the dress became 'caught, and as she jumped she was pulled back under the elevator, and fell heavily to the ground floor, some thirty feet below. Those who heard the fall rushed to the elevator shaft, and found the woman uncon scious, with blood streaming from her mouth and nose. She was picked up, but died inside of five minutes. The body was taken to Connolly's morgue, where an inquest will be held this morn ing at 10:30. As the body lay in the morgue, the only bruises that could be found, outside of a broken jaw, were four slight ones on her right leg. No bones were broken. Mary Olson came from Sweden, where her parents reside, about a year ago. She was twenty-four years of aire, and a remarkably well formed girl. No blame can attach to the management of the West or to the elevator for her death, as on the elevator is a big notice forbidding any one from riding on it, : and stating in large letters that the ele vator is for freight alone, aud not for passengers under any circumstances. ALGONQUIN BRAVES. Several Rampant Discussions—- Officers Nominated. The Algonquin braves had an old time pow-wow at the wigwam Tuesday night, and the pipe of peace, though it gracefully passed about at times, was occasionally shelved and the hatchet dug up. Most of the warlike talk was over the report of the committee to ar range for the excursion to St. Louis. The committee really had nothing yet to report and wanted more time, but several charges were preferred against it. Joe Jepson claimed to have inside facts and charged that certain members of the committee had received passes for themselves for recommending the Burlington road. He was opposed to the Burlington on general principles, be cause it outraged organized labor. This brought on a discussion of the labor vote in politics, in the course of which John R. Everhard said he was sick of the labor vote. The Democrats had al ways done as requested by this vote, which had deserted them on election day. He cited the aldermanic contest in the Fifth ward, last spring, as a glar ing instance. The committee which was to investi gate the office of Engineer Rinker failed to report, and it was finally agreed to compromise the matter by recommend ing council to adopt the Kerr sewer or dinance. This was the time for the nomination of club officers for the ensuing year. A. T. Ankeny and J. W. Lawrence" were named for president, but the former de clined and the latter will be chosen by acclamation. For vice president, P. B. Winston., Randolph Burgess and William McArdle were nominated, but Burgess declined. F. G. Holbrook de clined to be named as a candidate for secretary, and C. A. Cornman and C. L. Locke were entered. Dick Heinrich and A. 1). Smith were named for trus tees, and C. R. Hill and C. F. Baxter for sergeaut-at-arms. The election will occur in June. A special meeting will probably be held in two weeks. WARMLY INDORSED. First Ward Workingmen Favor Kerr's Sewer Ordinance. The First ward Irish-American club gave way last evening to a citizens' meeting at Tobin's rink, called for the purpose of obtaining an expression of reeling concerning the ordinance intro duced into the city council by Aid. Kerr, whicli transfers the control of the work on the public sewers from the city engi neer to the council committee on sew ers. About 500 citizens, principally workiugmen, were present, and were unanimous in their ap proval of the ordinance. The only dissenting voice was that of Andrew Nowlan, a foreman on the sewer work under Engineer Rinker, who did not succeed in expressing any reason for opposing the ordinance other than that Mr. Rinker knew how to run things better than the committee would. A. L. Lennon called the meeting to order and Aid. Kerr explained the ordinance, saying it was intended to do away with the one-man power and place the work in the hands of a committee of alder men who are elected by the. people and know their wants. Aid. L'Herault made a vigorous speech indorsing the ordinance warmly, and short ad dresses in the same vein were made by John T. Byrnes, Frank Lyld, John Mc- Gowan, Joseph Smith, Matt Gallagher, Frank Hortenback, Cornelius Linne han and G. W. Rathburn. At the con clusion a resolution requesting the rep resentatives of the ward to vote for the ordinance was carried with a shout. /?/./. mc t0 let ads * in tlic Globe are seen by nuuirid flu most people. THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: THURSDAY MORNING, MAT? 3, 1888. ACCEPTS TWO CHALLENGES * The Powers of Kate Eddy, the Spirit Medium, to Be Tested. PROF. JOHNSONS EXPOSE. A Very Lively Time Anticipated at the Washington Rink Sunday Night. Prof. E. G. Johnson, "mesmerist, psychologist and exposer of spiritual ism," as he calls himself, gave a private seance, or rather expose, of what he claims are the tricks by which people are induced to believe in the possession of supernatural powers by so-called spirit mediums, for gthc benefit of rep resentatives of the press, at the Wind sor hotel yesterday. The professor has taken up the offer of Kate Eddy, the spiritualistic medium, who stated in the papers she was willing her powers should be put to any . reasonable test. The professor • proved to be aonervous little man, who kept moving and talking constantly. "'1 he spiritualism is all bosh," he re marked to the reporters, and laying his hand fiat upon a light table, lifted it and swung it about without the least exertion. Then he showed a little slot in the plain gold ring he wore which fitted over a little pin in the table which could be pulled out with a jerk, leaving so small a hole as not to be noticeable. He was tightly bound with ropes, but freed himself almost in an instant. He showed up the slate-writing fake with silica paper, gave table knockings by merely putting rosin on his fingers, which made the slightest movement of the hands sound like mysterious rap pings. He performed these and others tricks with the greatest ease, and wound up with the remark. "I just wanted to show you, boys, 1 know what I'm talking about when 1 say I can expose Kate Eddy or any other so-called medium. I wanted to get a bet Out of her, but as she won't put up money I'll go upon the stage at the Washington rink Sunday night and expose her just for the fun of the thing." Another individual has turned up who wants to test Miss Eddy's alleged powers. He is _. L. Wood, of St. Paul, and is a test medium himself, and a spiritualist as well, who claims he will give Miss Eddy a number of tests she cannot perform. He claims he can give answers to sealed messages held in the audience, and will produce half-page essays in one minute written upon any subject. Miss Eddy was still indisposed yestei day, and refused to see c lifers, but has sent the following reply to Prof. John son's challenge for publication in the press : Minneapolis. _ay 2.— To whom it may concern: In view of the challenge of E. _. Johnson, a prestidigitateur, to expose any or all of my manifestations, which I propose to give at Washington rink, Sunday, May 6. 1 will boldly assert that he cannot perform any of my manifestations, and that I will give him $150 if be can so successfully accom plish them. lam a Christian woman and do not wager, and I claim that my work is bona tide and without the pale of material means. 1 will fu. ther add that 1 am a firm believer in Christian science as taught by its disci ples. The public servant and friend to all humanity, Kate Eddy. Witness: Henry Jones Sanderson, secre tary. — _ THE TOP NOTCH. The Mills Grind More Flour Than Ever in a Single Week. The Northwestern Miller in its issue of to-day will say: The mills again outdid themselves last week, making the highest quantity of* flour ever pro duced in a single week. .The total out put was 181,800 averaging 30, --000 barrels daily— against 178,200 barrels the week before, and 120,500 barrels for the corresponding time in 1887. Two mills with a combined capacity of 1,000 barrels were idle when this run was made. Somewhat lighter work will doubtless be shown this week, as two mills representing a daily product of 1,500 barrels were shut down Saturday, and though one of them may be started to-morrow or next day, the temporary loss of their output will be apparent. The mills continue to run strong, but there is some talk about having to slacken up if there is not an early im provement in the flour trade. Millers claim that wheat is now so high as to al most prohibit milling, and that either flour must go up or wheat down, else, they will have to stop grinding. The market is extremely dull, and very little flour is being sold. At the prices held to no one seems to want to buy, the do mestic and foreign markets being alike in this respect. Most of the mills have enough orders on hand to keep them going for awhile, and the output for a week or two at least will probably be large. The direct exports of flour were again large last week, though ma terially lighter than the week before. The large volume of exports during the past three weeks was attributed to ex tensive sales made a month or more ago, and as the books are nearly cleaned up, there is likely to be a heavy falling off. The exports for the week were 66,750 barrels, against 82,750 barrels the week before. They Could Not Prove It. In the case of A. W. Russell, indicted for owning a house of assignation at 247 and 249 Hennepin avenue, the state could not prove that Russell was the proprietor and the action was dismissed on the defendant's motion. Testimony to the effect that he was generally* re ported to be the proprietor was very plentiful, and a lot of racy testimony introduced to show that the place was disreputable. Several servant girls testified that he had employed them to work there, but the prosecution could not show positively that he ran the place and the case was dismissed. This "joint" is quite generally known about the city in the character men tioned above. First Death at the Home. The first death has occurred at the soldiers' home in the person of Peter F. McNair, of Company F, Thirteen Wis consin. He was forty -eight of age and died Tuesday of erysipelas and debility. The home authorities have made no ar rangements for a burial ground, but his remains will be interred on the home property, awaiting any subsequent dis position of them. His sister and brother arrived in the city yesterday and ac quiesce in the arrangement. Mayor Ames is superintending the prepara tions for the funeral, which will occur to-day at 2p. m. The chaplain will conduct the services, and the Minneap olis Ideal quartette will sing a hymn. Bert Key's Funeral. The funeral of Bert Ney took place yesterday afternoon at Warner's under taking rooms at 4 o'clock. There was quite a large gathering of sorrowing friends, and the floral tributes were both beautiful and numerous. Dr. J. H. Tuttle, who conducted the services, paid an eloquent tribute to the deceased whom he had known intimately earlier in life, having thirty-four years ago united Mr. and Mrs. Ney in 'marriage. The remains, accompanied by Mrs. Ney and a brother of the deceased, were shipped to Utica, N. V., last evening. Bennett Seminary. The following directors of Bennett seminary have been elected: Capt. J. C. Whitney, Hon. E. M. Wilson, C. 11. Pettit, Rev. D. J. Burrell, Maj. C. B. Heffelfinger, H. W. Wagner, R. S. Bur hyte, G. A. Pierce, Rev. J. M. Patterson and 1). M. Gilmore. Capt. Whitney was chosen president, and D. M. Gilmore secretary. The executive committee is composed of Capt. Whitney, chairman; C. H. Pettit, E. M. Wilson, D. J. Bur rell and D. M. Gilmore, secretary. Miss Kenyon was reappointed principal. The institution will continue in its present quarters, and be more vigorously pushed along than ever. I IN THE CITY'S MIDST. A Dreadful, Yet Common Enough Occurrence. V Deserted wives are becoming 100 ___- mon in Minneapolis. The cry of Hie worse than widowed and the fatherless daily ascends to heaven. In a small room in an otherwise vacant house in South Minneapolis, with their furniture all packed up ready to move, is a family which consists of the mother and four small children. The quondam husband is a stone-mason now earning good wages at his trade in Montana; Not a penny has his wife received from him in six months. It is an American family, so that the cry of "imported pauperism" cannot be used against them. They owe $30 or $40 to the landlord, which they must pay by this morning, or be evicted. They have decided, however, to move under cover of the night's darkness in order to avoid attachment of their scanty house hold goods for payment of rent. Where they will move, or how they they can pay rent in any new quarters is a puzle. The children, bereft of a father, and forced to bear the burdens of life at . so early an age, are in a truly pitable con dition. ALL SORTS. _________ i A St. Paul firm which manufactures jumpers and overalls asked its girl em ployes to get up a subscription for the strikers at Shotwell, Clerihew _ Loth man's, and then headed the list with a good sum. Klopf and Winklemau, of the Minne apolis team, are reported to be sick. From this long distance viewed, it would seem the whole team is sick. There is a large distillery at Dcs Moines, it is said. The Journal's court reporter looks at the eloquent county attorney through a million magnifier and see's a grand giant. The Democratic aldermen will caucus this evening. Doors and windows at the city hall have been wadded and stuffed for the occasion. After twent«-four hours, the recent Republican convention has not sue-* ceeded in unraveling itself to find out where it stands. It is poor delegate that cannot claim a victory after that. The Evening Star is getting out a paper now-a-days that will compel its rivals to hustle. E. W. Clark will carry time to Ta comaites 'with an electric clock. "Phoenix" and "Com'l" will soon be familiar terms out there. It is said Detective Quinlan knows a thing or two of interest if he could only be prevailed upon to tell. A Republican attorney remarked yes terday: "The Globe's cartoon was a good one: but it should have been re versed. Jamison is a much stronger man than Davis, and should have been shown as holdine up Davis, instead of Davis holding him. MINNEAPOLIS GLOBULES. Hank clearings yesterday, 81,720.145.48. The annual election of the Y. M. C. A. oc* cured last evening. Six cases of contagious diseases were re ported yesterday. The Michigan association banquet at the West Monday evening next. Oak Lake Improvement association held its annual meeting last night. The Flour City Cadet band gives a concert at Harmonia hall this evening. An attrac ive programme has been prepared. The case against Albert Olson, charged with blockading the street, was continued until Friday. - j The court house commission at its meeting yesterday afternoon took no definite action in the selection of plans and the awarding of prizes. Charles Norris. charged with assaulting O. Olson, was discharged, as Olson withdrew the complaint on Norris paying the costs in ' the case. " ■ j The council committee on licenses yester day decided to recommend to the common council that the license on one-horse-wagon peddlers be reduced from 5100 to 875, and ■ that the license be abolished on small push carts. Frank Blake and Belle Bosworth, arrested at Davidson's notorious lodging house on First street a few evenings ago while occu pying the same room, were arraigned on a charge of lewd and indecent conduct. Both swore that they were married and so the court discharged them. :-;iiti •. j Mrs. Kate M. McCullough died yesterday afternoon at her residence. 3.. Sixteenth street north, from inflammation of the bow els. The deceased leaves a husband, James McCullough. and an infant daughter to mourn her loss. The funeral occurs from the church of the Immaculate conception at 9 o'clock Friday morning. At the meeting of the council committee on roads and bridges yesterday afternoon, the owners of property fronting" on Nicollet ave nue, between Third and Fourth streets, made complaint that the alleyway in block 02 had been practically blocked so as to be unfit for use. Half ot the alley had been granted to the Globe Building company for an area way, but that in consequence nearly all of the alleywuy had been appropriated", making the alleyway inaccessible and causing water to run into the stores on Nicollet avenue. What was wanted, these gentlemen claimed, was a sewer which would drain off the water. The commiitee decided to recommend to the council that a grade to correspond with that of Nicollet avenue be established for the alley. MINNEAPOLIS REAL ESTATE.

As to the much-abused steel pen coat, it is not beautiful, certainly. But if properly constructed, as our grandfathers wore it, made double breasted and to button across the chest, it is a remarkably good work-day gar ment, and I wonder very much it has gone out of fashion for morning wear.

The most important event in the way of the public sales of thoroughbred stock since Col. King's great sale at Chicago in 1874, is the three days' series of H.F. Brown and J. J.Hill, commencing with Brown's at Minne apolis, Tuesday, May 8, who is joined by the old veteran breeder, Col. W. S. King, who is the first man that intro duced Shorthorns in Minnesota. At this sale will be offered the finest list of young bulls and heifers (some fifty-five head in all) of Wild Eyes, Waterloos, Pens, Cherry Duchess, Kirklevingtons, Constances, etc., that ever were sold at one sale in this state. And every ani mal being guaranteed makes it entirely safe for the purchaser, something very unusual at auction sales. Any animal", either male or female, not proving as * represented, can be returned and the money refunded or another one selected equally as good at no expense to the purchaser. It is to be presumed under the circumstances that no farmer or breeder who desires to improve his stock will fail to be present at this sale: also all reasonable time is given to pay, so there seems to be no excuse for our Minnesota and Dakota farmers not availing themselves of such an oppor tunity as Mr. Brown now offers of im proving their stock. The sale will be held at the new and commodious sale stable at the corner of Lyndale avenue and Thirty-second street south.
