DONE IN THE COUNCIL.
(The Evening* Star-News De
clared the Official Paper
of Minneapolis.
the Police Commission Re
port Given a Little More
Ventilation.
the Proposed Lowering of
the H. & D. Tracks
Discussed.
Deadlock Over the Election of
Street Commissioners
Broken.
The committee on printing furnished
most of the material lor animated de
bates at yesterday's meeting of the city
council, and the letting of the publica
tion of the proceedings of the council
created something of a breeze. The
committee reported in favor of accent
ing the bid of the Evening Star, which
was for 22 cents per inch in either
nonpareil or minion type. Aid. E. M.
Johnson in order to head off the prob
able adoption of the report tried to have
it laid on the table, and attempted to
make it appear that the council should
designate what style of type should be
used. lie finally made a motion to that
effect which carried, when the chair
man of the committee on printing in
formed the council that the contract in
accordance with which the bid was
made specified that the council should
have this privilege.
Aid. Clouticr then moved that the
Star should be declared the official pa
per id' the city.
Again the "friend of the Tribune ob
jected upon the specious plea that the
contract had not been signed.
Aid. Cloutier then added that his
motion should take effect when the con
tract was signed, which was unanimous
ly carried.
The committee recommended that the.
bids for doing the job printing be all
rejected, and the heads of departments
of the city government be allowed to
get their printing where they please.
provided Minneapolis printers are
patronized. This was adopted on the
face of the fact that tlie charter directs
that the lowest bid shall be accepted.
THAT POLICE COMMISSION REPORT.
The committee reported that it had
been unable to obtain the majority re
port of the board of police commis
sioners from Commissioner Baker or 11.
A. Norton, the clerk, and of course .
could not have it printed in accordance
with instructions, and recommend that
the matter be referred to ihe city attor
ney with instructions to take .such steps
as he thought best in order to secure *
the return to the city clerk of the same.
A Id., Parker of the committee, attempted
to make it appear that the report which
had been read in the council and re
ferred to the committee was not the full
report, and the board had not intended
to submit it. lie undertook to intimate
that it had been loaned by courtesy to
the major, who had turned it over to
the clerk. He was contradicted in this
by the city attorney, who exclaimed:
"Why, Commissioner Baker and Maj.
Norton both stood here and heard the
report read and never raised any
objection."
Aid. E. M. Johnson undertook to
make it appear that the printing of the
report was a trivial matter, ana finally
the advice of the city attorney was
sought lie suggested that a formal re
quest should be made by the council for
the return of the document. This was
done, accordingly, in the form of a
resolution.
STREET COMMISSIONERS ELECTED.
The deadlock over the election of
street commissioners was in a measure
broken. Aid. Cooley moved that the
council proceed to the election of a
street commissioner for the Eighth
ward. This was amended by Aid. Gil
man, that the street commissioners of
all the wards should be elected. This
was defeated, ami then Aid. E. M. John
son moved the election of an Eighth
ward street commissioner, and Aid.
Dwyer objected that it was out of
order.
Aid. Cooley said he did not regard the
Democrats as obstructionists, and 'did
not want to. If they were lie wanted to
know it. The Eighth ward needed to
have certain work done, and should not
be prevented.
Aid. Mills said the Third ward was
suffering because of water, and needed
a street commissioner at once.
Aid. E. M. Johnson then moved that
the Eighth and Third ward commis
sioners be elected.
The chair declared the motion in
order, saying he recognized the election
of commissioners in certain wards as
needed. No appeal was taken from his
decision, and the Twelfth and Thir
teenth wards were added by amend
ment. The election resulted as follows:
Third Ward— Alstadt, 28 votes.
Eighth Ward— S. Tripp (Rep.), 21;
I. W. Fitzgerald (Dem.), 6.
Twelfth Ward— Levi Cumm ings, 22;
M. D. Elliot, 9.
Thirteenth Ward- -George Bicknell,
19; James Gorman, 13.
ILJIIK HASTINGS & DAKOTA TRACKS.
There was the usual row over lower
ing the Hastings & Dakota tracks in
the Seventh, Eighth, Twelfth and
Thirteenth wards, which came upon the
majority and minority reports of a
special committee consisting of the
committee on railroads and the alder
men from the wards affected, to which
was referred Aid. Cooley's ordinance,
finch provides that the city shall bear
half of the expense of lowering the
tracks. The majority report, signed by
seven members of the committee, was in
favor of the ordinance, and the minority
report, which was unfavorable to the
ordinance was signed by six mem
bers. Aid. ('ooley's idea was that
the city would get enough dirt to
be used for grading to pay half of the
excavation; and in this lie was
backed up by Aid. Gibson, Dwyer,
and E. M. Johnson, while Aids. Cloutier
and Nbrenberg thought the railroad
should stand the entire expense, and
would soon be forced to do so in order
to accommodate its own business. Aid.
Koreuberg stated this view of the case
when he said: "The railroad will be
compelled to lower its tracks within a
year or else take them up, and 1 wish
they would do it." The majority was
finally adopted, and a resolution ac
cepting the proposition of the railroad
to divide the expense was laid over to
the next regular meeting and made the
special order of business.
VARIOUS MATTERS.
The fixing of the license for the priv
ilege of keeping a dog of the female
sex gave rise to a funny debate. The
committee on licenses reported in favor
of making it $5; Aid. Ed Johnson
wanted to make it HO; Aid. Mills
wanted action indefinitely postponed,
but the committee's recommendation
was adopted.
The monthly budget of bills amount
ing to $145,084.19 was passed.
The license on billiard and pool tables
was reduced from $15 to -55 for each
table.
The ordinance giving the Omaha and
the Northern Pacific railroads right of
way over First street north, was given
its first reading.
A proposition of a company to con
struct a crematory for refuse of a capac
ity of 100 cubic feet per day.the city to
furnish the ground and purchase it at a
cost not to exceed $5,000, provided it
gives satisfaction, was adopted upon
the recommendation of the committee
on health and hospitals.
The city attorney reported back Aid.
Kerr s sewer ordinance without recom
mendation, and it was referred to a spe
cial committee of five and the city attor
ney.
E.L.Ellis and family have returned from
Connecticut, where they have been spending
the winter. ' &
„^ B. Winston, Esq.. left last evening for
■Duluth, whence lie will make a trip over the
Iron Itange railroad.
"WORTHY THE CAUSE.
The Handsome Structure to Be
Elected by the Y. M. C. A.
Accompanying this article is a cut of
the proposed new building of the Young
Men's Christian association to be erected
this year on the corner of Mary place
and Tenth street, a sightly location
which meets with the almost unanimous
approval of all classes in the city. As
will be seen at a glance from the above
picture, taken from a hasty pen etching
by the secretary, the building will bean
imposing and edifice worthy the lo
cation. The lot, already owned by the
association, upon which this ornate
structure is to stand is 07? feet on
Tenth street by 107 feet on Mary place.
For the present the building will oc
cupy the corner, 97>£ by 100 "feet, with
the main entrance on Tenth street. It
will lie built of stone, four stories in
height.' After the return of the commit
tee, in company with the architect,
some slight changes may be made, but
the arrangemenfrof the building will be
practically as follows: First Floor— i
main entrance on Tenth street will be
large and attractive. The side en- i
trance on Mary place, leading to
the secoud lloor, will also pre
sent a specially inviting appearance.
The front corridor will lead directly into
the spacious, bright, cheery reception
room, from which, by large doors or cur
tained openings, the following parts of
the building can be reached: A large
and commodious reading room, mem
bers' parlor, small lecture room, secre
tary's office, coat room, large gym
nasium, entrance to visitors' gallery of
gymnasium, to second floor, etc. No
pains will be spared to make all the de
tails and furnishings of this main floor
as complete and attractive as possible.
Second Floor— Besides the large hall,
capable of seating 1,000 persons, with
the gallery, this floor will contain the
directors' room, junior department
rooms, music and art rooms, committee
rooms, etc. Third and Fourth Floors—
This portion of the building will con
tain additional class and committee
rooms, and will probably be fitted up
with elegant apartments for young men.
Basement— Here will be located 500
gymnasium lockers, lavatories, hot and
cold shower, needle and sponge baths,
three bowling alleys, a natatovium, bi
cycle storeroom, space for 500 additional
lockers, heating apparatus and electric
light plant. The building will cost, it is
estimated, exclusive of heating and
lighting plant, •? 100,000, Mr. 11. O.
Ilawlins started the list of subscrip
tions about two years ago with the gift
of 510,000, and the total amount of
pledges at the present time foots up
to something over $83,000. This will
be increased by a continued active
canvass until the sum of at least 8130,
--000 is secured. The building will be
fore long be an accomplished fact, and
will not only be an ornament to the
city, but one of the finest equipped
buildings for its peculiar mission of
"work for men by young men" in' the
world. - » --

Mrs. Samuel Campbell is no other
than Miss Cora Belle Fellows, the beaut
iful Washington girl who went to Chey

That settles beyond all doubt that
Chaska and Miss Fellows have been
secured by Khol, Middlcton & Co.
The firm gave the amount stated and
pay all their expenses from the time
they leave the reservation until they
return. In addition the museum men
buy their farm, which will be presented

THE JURY IS LOCKED UP,
And the Fate of the Pretty Prisoners in
Doubt.
WOMEN AS FLY WITNESSES.
The Defense Brings Chicago to the
Rescue— What Counsel Had
to Say.
When the case against Mrs. Camp
bell and Mrs. Curtiss, charged with
shoplifting, was resumed yesterday
morning there was a large audience
present, and of the whole number about
one-quarter were ladies. Mrs. Camp
bell and Mrs. Curtiss were dressed as
on the day before and looked cooler
than ever. The day before Mr. Wor
rell had promised to have witnesses
from Chicago present, and he was as
good as his word, for a delegation from
that city occupied seats inside the rail.
MRS. CAMI'HELL.
They were all relatives or friends of
the prisoners and claimed to know all
about the ribbon.
Mrs. Sarah Foster, an old friend of
Mrs. Campbell was the first witness.
She detailed at length how she and
Mrs. Campbell had cone shopping and
had purchased the ribbon. Mrs. Lizzie
Mosher, also a resident oWhicago, was
prepared to state that Mrs. Campbell
did not steal the ribbon, as she saw her
sister with the finery soon after it was
purchased.
Mrs. Charlotte Fallown. of Chicago,
Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Curtiss'
mother, was the next witness. She
said that Mrs. Campbell bought the
ribbon at W. 11. Uagedon's store, in
Chicago, and had helped to pack it in
the valise when Mrs. Campbell -came
back to Minneapolis.
There was a stir when Mrs. Campbell
took the stand. She told her story in a
clear, straightforward way. and "made
many friends. She swore she had pur
chased the ribbon in Chicago.
Miss Hattie Clement, a servant em
ployed by Mrs. Mosher in Chicago,
swore that she knew all about the rib-
Ml?*. CURTISS.
bon, as she was present when Mrs.
Campbell came home from her shopping
tour.
'•How do you remember the date?"
asked Mr. Davis.
"Oh, I remember it because we washed
on that day, and 1 had lots of hard work
to do."
"Don't you have to work hard on all
wash days?"
"Yes, sir, I do; but I remember this
day because I went to the stores."
"How do you remember you went to
the stores on that day? Are you one of
those people who keep a diary?"
"No, sir."
"Well, what do you keep?"
"I keep a grocery book, sir."
Mrs. Curtis was sworn, but save noth
ing particularly new or interesting.
AFTEHXOOX SESSION.
_ A the opening of the afternoon ses
sion of the district court yesterday Mrs.
Curtiss was placed on the stand and
cross-examined. Nothing especially
new was brought out. While question
ing her Mr. Davis asked :
"When were you arrested, Mrs.
Curtiss?"
"I did not know that 1 was arrested."
"Well, you were taken into the mu
nicipal court, were you not?"
"Yes, sir, I was."
"Yes! That's what we call an arrest
in this country."
Mrs. Curtiss admitted, under close
questioning, that two or three days after
her arrest she had gone to police head
quarters and secured from the chief of
police samples of both ribbons at the re
quest of her attorney. Soon after that
she had gone to Chicago. Mr. Davis
tried hard to brine out what these
samples of ribbon had been procured
for, but failed.
Mrs. Campbell, on being recalled,
took the witness stand with a careless
grace that was very refreshing. Her
testimony was full of suppositions and
maybes; she was positive of nothing ex
cept the most trivial things.
Miss Marie Berg was recalled. She
denied that she had become indignant,
as alleged by Mrs. Campbell and Mrs.
Curtiss, when they refused to take cer
tain ribbon that she had measured off.
This closed the testimony for both sides.
FOR THE PROSECUTION.
Mr. Davis opened the argument. He
said the case.was a somewhat unusual
one. It had many extraordinary feat- •
nres. You are trying two well-dressed,
intelligent women, one of whom sits
with her husband. Yet you are
g them as you would try a man in
who has picked his neighbor's
pocket. You must arrive at a conclu
sion by the evidence presented, and not
by the fact that the prisoners come from
the higher walks of life. Mr. Davis re
viewed the testimony given at some
length, and said it fell upon the prison
ers to explain how the ribbon had come
into their possession. Now look at the
defense of the prisoners, ' that Mrs.
Campbell purchased the two bolts of
ribbon in Chicago on Feb. 20. How
strange it is that the old friendship be
tween Mrs. Campbell, of Minneapolis,
and Mrs. Mosher and Mrs. Foster, of
Chicago, should be revived just before
this ribbon was stolen from the store of
Miss Blaisdell. Mr. Davis next took up
the second bolt of ribbon, which Mrs.
Campbell claimed was in the trunk at
the time the alleged stolen bolt was
found. Mr. Davis scorned the idea that
Mrs. Campbell had this second bolt.
After Mrs. Curtiss had secured the
samples of ribbon from Superintendent
of Police Hem she went directly to Chi
cago and secured the second bolt which
is produced here in court by the prison
ers' attorney. They thought to throw
dust in our eyes by this means, but they
were not sharp enough. It seems
strange that while there was only one
bolt of this wonderful rainbow ribbon in
all the millinery stores Mrs. Campbell
and Mrs. Curtiss should have several
bolts of it.
FOR THE DEFENSE.
Mr. Worrall followed. He said that
the county attorney was flushed with so
many recent victories that he seemed to
consider it impossible that he could be
beaten. If you believe the statements
of the prosecuting attorney, you must
think the attorneys for the defense ca
pable of almost any crime. Instead of
presenting facts, the county attorney
has been simply casting insinuations at
my clients. You must look well at all
the testimony which has been intro
duced. The witnesses for the state, be
fore they came on the stand, had satis
lied their own minds that the defendants
were guilty of the crime charged. What
puzzles me is how these, women could
have stolen these two big bolts of rib
bon right, under the eves of the two
ladies in charge of the store. Take Mr.
Anderson's • "testimony. When this
alleged robbery took place Mr. Ander
son was about to wed Miss Blaisdell's
sister, and of course he wanted to make
himself solid with the family. Then
take the newspapers. They have al
ready made a great fuss over the case,
and have really tried this case and de
cided that my clients were guilty be
fore hearing the evidence. That's the
trouble with these papers; they say too
much before they know the facts.
Toward the close of his address Hon.
James grew decidedly dramatic as he
appealed to the jury not to separate a
loving husband and his wife, and not to
tear away from a little child its agonized
mother and hide her behind, dark,
dreary prison walls. Mr. Worrall's
picture of what should follow in case
the woman was found guilty was not a
pleasant one and drew tears from the
eyes of some of the women present. He
said, in reference to Mrs. Curtiss' pro
curing the samples of ribbon from the
chief of police, that he had told the lady
to go to police headquarters and ask for
the samples, because he wanted to see
what his clients were charged with
stealing. He began to allude to the
punishment if the women were found
guilty, when Judge Hicks interposed
with:
"The counsel will please come to
order; he has no right to say anything
in regard to the punishment— that is the
court's business."
"I beg your pardon," returned Mr.
Worrell, turning to the judge.- He then
concluded his remarks with a spread
eagle speed).
judge Hicks' charge to the jury was
brief and to the point. He explained
the case thoroughly, and said that to
convict the jury must find that the de
fendants were guilty beyond a reasona
ble doubt. Possession of stolen prop
erty, if unexplained, tends to show
guilty, and you must carefully consider
wether or not these defendants have
satisfactorily explained how they came
into possession of this ribbon. The
case was given to the jury at 8:45.
It was learned earl]? in the morning
that the trial was exceedingly likely to
result in a disagreement, on account of
the conflicting testimony and on account
of the prisoners being women. At 12
o'clock the jury was still locked in the
jury room, where cots had been pre
pared.

HOW TO DISPOSE OP THEM.
The New Charter and Ordinances
Ready For Those Who Need
Them.
As a matter of information, the fol
lowing letter of Seagrave Smith, city at
torney, to the council, is given:
The city charter, ordinances, etc.,
have been compiled, indexed and
printed, and are now in the hands oj
the binder. To the end that they be
properly distributed, etc., I deem it' best
to make a few suggestions.
First— one-half of the edition (or
500 copies) be gathered in volumes and
preserved intact without binding, until
needed. This will permit of changes,
additions and amendments hereafter at
small expense, and save rebinding.
Second— the remaining 500 be
bound in full sheep for the use of city
officials exchange with other cities; sell
to attorneys, etc.
Third— That copies be sent by the city
clerk, under direction of the mayor, to
the mayors of leading cities (not to ex
ceed fifty),. with a request for reciproca
tion if they have not anticipated the re
quest.
Fourth— That the city clerk deliver,
or cause to be delivered conies to all the
elective officers of the city" and heads of
departments, as well as to the munici
pal court and city boards.
Fifth That the* city clerk also deliver
one copy each to the judges of the dis
trict court, county attorney' assistant
county attorney, clerk of court, county
treasurer, county auditor, sheriff, bar
association, library, atheneum, state
library. State university and each daily
newspaper office in the city.
Sixth— That he also deliver, under di
rection of the committee on printing,
such number of additional copies as
may be needed in the various depart
ments, and copies to such appointed
officers (not heads of departments) as
the committee may designate, said
copies to be preserved and turned over
to the successors of such officers.
Seventh— That the city clerk be au
thorized to sell such limited numbei of
the remaining copies as the committee
may deem expedient to attorneys, etc.,
for $8 for complete charter, ordinances,
etc., the proceeds to be paid into the
city treasury. While this figure will not
pay the cost, it will pay the additional
cost of the copies so sold, that is for
paper, presswork and binding.
Eighth— That the committee on print
ing be authorized to have a portion of
the bound copies bound complete in one
volume if they deem the same prac
ticable; and, also to have such addi
tional printing on the covers of copies
sent to other cities, in exchange, as they
deem proper.
Ninth— That the city clerk keep an
account of the copies received by him
and the disposition made of the same.

j ""SHORTHORN" CATTLE.
! nTo Be Sold at Public Sale. ";.
i 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 Minneap
olis', 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,
Peris, 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
uuusual 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
these 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 JLyndale avenue
and Thirty-second street south. On
Wednesday, May 9, at North Oaks, Mr.
Hill sells fifty head of 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 aa
invaluable spring medicine."

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE.
''Who put those words in your mouth, I'd like to
know?" exclaimed Mrs. Bjenkins, whose Johnnie
had just been using some eccentric language.
"Mr, Follibud, I guess, mamma," said Johnnies
younger brother; "at least I saw him putting some
words in sister Fannies mouth while they were
standing out by the gate in the moonlight last even
ing."
The circumstance of increased trade is evidence
that the UTK Clothing House, Minneapolis, has
satisfied its patrons, and that its reputation for
quality, fit and prices of its goods is fully sustained.
