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
Date of the Democratic Con
vention—A Woman Killed
hy an Elevator.
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.
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.

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.
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

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
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.
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

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.

The Powers of Kate Eddy, the Spirit
Medium, to Be Tested.
A Very Lively Time Anticipated at the
Washington Rink Sunday
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.

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
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.

Defending the Swallow-Tail.
London Truth.
The only way to make knee-breeches
comfortable is to imitate the now almost
extinct Irish ' peasant breeches-wearer
and habitually forget to button them at
the knee. 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.
'or any kind of bodily work or exercise
it is absolutely unrivaled. It has no
useless skirts to flop about and impede
the movements.and the pockets.well out
of the way, are only inconvenient when
. you sit down. It is the best walking
coat ever Revised, whereas the modern
frock coat is about the worst and most
cumbersome. -•• '• ... :■ ■■

The American Building & Loan
Has moved to 208 Lumber Exchange.
This association is growing faster than
any other similar organization in the
Utited States. More than 5,000 shares
of stock sold during the last-three
months. Rate of profit on loan fund 24
per cent per annum for the average
time. Monthly series stock issued at any
time. F. P. Rundell, president; James

To Be Sold at Public Sale.
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. On
Wednesday, May 9, at North Oaks, Mr.
Hill sells fifty head ot the best Bates
blood, such as Duchess, Oxfords. Wild
Eyes, . Barringtons, Thorndale Roses,
etc., and Thursday, the 10th. fifty Polled
Angus, making a three days' sale, and
the most attractive as well as the most
useful lot of thoroughbreds ever sold
in this country. _ .

Every Farmer Knows
That weeds must be torn up by the roots, or
they will be sure to crop out again. So it is
with diseases which have their origin in de
praved blood. The cause of the complaint
must be removed by Ayer's Sarsaparilla, or
no permanent cure is possible. Try it.
C. W. Allen, Druggist, of Brunswick, Me.,
says: "I have never known Ayer's Sarsa
parilla fail to give satisfaction. In hundreds
of cases within my knowledge it has proved ■
a perfect specific for diseases arising from
impurities in the blood. I regard it as an
' invaluable spring medicine."'
