SAINTLY CITY DOINGS. More Trouble Brewing for the Members of the Old Car * Company. An Ordinance for an Elevated Road Between the Twin Cities. Visitors From the Blue Grass State to Reach St. Paul To-Day. Summary of the Doings of One Day Gathered From All Sources. MORE TROUBLE COMING. Suits to Be Begun Against North western Car Company Stock holders. All indications point to a renewal in the near future of the protracted litiga tion in which the recently defunct firm ( of Seymour, Sabin & Co., aud the | Northwestern Car company, of i Stillwater, were involved. The long drawn-out legal fight in which the corporations above named figured as defendants ended some months since, when their assets were sold at auction j to a syndicate of capitalists now known as the Thresher company of Stillwater. Senator Sabin and his company are the moving spirits in this company, which is looked upon as the Moses who shall lead the Sabin hosts out of the wilderness and recoup them for the vast sums spent in the tussle with" the law. Now, come Flandrau, Squires & Cutchen, attorneys for tne Thresher company, and spring upon the stockholders of the old firm of Seymour, Sabin it Co. and the Northwestern Car company a circular letter calcu lated to scare them out of their shoes, and also to bear pecuniary fruit. The circular letter referred to is no more nor less than a demand upon the Stockholders of the 'defunct corpora tions named to pay over to the Thresher company, as the legal suc cessor to Seymour, Sabin & Co. and the Northwestern Car company the sev eral amounts received by them in years past in the shape of divi dends on their stock, and also to pony up a certain percentage of their subscriptions to capital stock which it is claimed they never settled. The aggregate of the several amounts claimed is so large that the parties who received circulars have em ployed legal counsel, and will en gage in another legal bout with tin? Sabin forces. The preliminaries to this new litigation are now in process of adjustment, and it is expected that the attorneys POH THE TIIEESIIEIi COMPANY will in a few days, at farthest, Insti tute proceedings in the United States court, demanding of these com mon stockholders .an accounting as .to the |manner in which they managed to get in on the ground floor in their subscriptions to the capital Stock of the old companies, and also as to tiie amounts received by them in div idends on their allotments of stock. One of the gentlemen who will appear as a defendant in this renewed litiga tion was seen last evening by a reporter for the Globe and interrogated as to the course which he and those who are in the same boat with him intended to pursue. Said he: "As soon as I received the circular I placed the matter in the hands of my attorney, Mr. Stone, who is attorney lor several other parties in in terest. It looks to me as if Senator Sabin, who is behind the thresher company, is trying to bull doze the friends who stood by him when he peeded help most. If such is the ease, and It looks to be, then he's got an other fight on his hands. I, for one, shall decline to be either bled or black mailed, and am ready to go into the courts. Then the case can be fought nut on its merits, and Senator Sabin will find that we can stay with him as long as he or the thresher company is inclined to fight." FOR AN ELEVATED ROAD. Another Ordinance for a Twin City Road Before the City Coun cil. A second franchise ordinance for an elevated railway between the Twin Cities was introduced at the meeting of the council last night, aud after first reading was referred to the committee on streets. The ordinance grants to the St. Paul & Minneapolis Elevated Bail road company, and specifies that the road shall run from a point near the north bank of the Mississippi river on Sibley street in a northwesterly direc tion along Sibley or some parallel street within three blocks either side thereof, to Eighth street or some street within three blocks either side, thence along Cedar street or some street within three blocks, along Central ave nue or some street within three blocks, along Wabasha street or some street within three blocks. on University avenue or some street within six blocks on either side, to the west city limits. The company is to have stations about one-half mile apart and Is to do nothing but a pas senger business, and burn no bitumi nous or semi-bituminous coaL Not more than 15 cents is to be charged for a single trip between the termini men tioned, and from 6 to 7:30 in the morn ing and between 5 and 7 in • the evening not more than 8 cents. The line is to be finished in two years from the date of passing the ordinance, un less restrained by order of the courts, and the company is to give a bond of 1500,000 to indemnify the city against any claims for damages. The canvass of votes cast at the re cent election was postponed until the next regular meeting. Resolutions of court house commission and county board were transmitted, requesting the council to take immediate action in the matter of PUBCIIASIXG a .tail site, the court house commission desiring to begin the erection of a steam heating plant thereon. No action was taken, Alderman Fetsch being absent. A resolution was passed authoriz ing the mayor and comptroller to issue the remaining $150,000 due from the city for the building of the new court house. Aid. Sanborn put in a resolution directing the special com mittee which has under consideration the ordinance granting franchise to the St. Paul and Minneapolis Rapid Transit company to report at the next meeting. A communica tion from the chamber of commerce, requesting the council to take such Steps as are necessary to test the sup ply of natural gas in the city, was referred to the commit tee on gas. Comptroller Roche submitted a report showing that the assessments collected on the West side park, amounting to 18,900, can not be returned by order of the council without the concurrence of the park commissioners, and that body refuses to take such action. The board of public works are at present making reassess ments. An order was passed instruct ing the|engineer to prepare plans for the BBOADWAY BRIDGE and approaches at once. The bridge is to have a capacity not less than the Robert street bridge. A resolution was also passed authorizing the issuing of 5200,000 bonds tor thirty years at 4'.r per cent to build the bridge. The bonds are not to be issued prior to July 1, 1889. Resolutions were passed allowing the judges and clerks of election $25 each; permitting police captains to main lain horses at sub-stations, and increasing the salary of Driver Shields, of the Black Maria, to $72 per month. A resolution by Aid. Kain, fixing nine hours as a day's work for city em ployes alter June 1, was referred to the committee on streets. VISITORS • FROM LOUISVILLE.

The day of humiliation and prayer was observed yesterday at the House of Hope church. The plan of changing topics and speakers every hour proved a decided success. In the evening Dr. Munhall preached to a large audience in Market hall ou the subject of ••Heaven." "As in considering hell, last night," said Dr. Munhall, "we must take our proof of the existence of a heaven from the Holy Scriptures. The word of God is full of heaven, and if we sought other evidence we can find it in the dying words of holy men. Now, as hell is full of bad people, so heaven is the abode of those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb, In heaven are the friends of whom we love, and he must be a hard ened sinner who would not wish to join his friends in paradise. But only those who have washed their robes can enter heaven. We cannot conceive of heaven as holding a single bad soul. It is a prepared place for a prepared people. Hell itself would be preferable to heaven to a man uncleansed and tin regenerate. We shall all go to one of these places, heaven or hell. It's only a little time for the youngest of us, and for some of us it may come to-morrow." The usual Bible reading will be con ducted by Dr. Munhall this afternoon in the House of Hope church, the exercises commencing at 3 o'clock. Friday after noon will be observed at the same place as Children's day. The doors will be closed at 3:40 p. m., the exercises com mencing ten minutes earlier. Friday evening Dr. Munhall will preach to the Grand Army men of the city, and all posts are urged to be present in full numbers. ' WANTS TO GO HIGHER. The Milwaukee Wants the United States Supreme Court to Re view the Milk Cases. Application was made to the supreme court yesterday, for a writ of error in the celebrated milk cases, decided against the petitioner some time ago. The cases were brought by the Mil waukee road to test the powers of the railway commissioners. Attorney Gen eral Clapp, speaking to a Globe re porter yesterday, said; "The Milwaukee railroad applied to Chief Justice Gilfillan for a writ to enable it to take this milk rate case to the supreme court of the United States for review. It applied on the ground that the decision involved federal ques tions. The law gives the United States supreme court jurisdiction to review decisions of the state courts, where rights are claimed under the federal constitution, and the decision is ad verse to such claim. The company" claims that the railroad law, as interpreted by tho supreme court of THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING MAY 9, 183 S. Minnesota, gives the commission power to diminish rates, and to that extent Is taking of its property without due process of law, and prohibited by the Fourteenth amendment to the United States constitution, and that the decis ion therefore involved a federal ques tion. The state, on the other hand, in sists that the real question raised in the case is whether the law is in ■conflict with the state constitution, and hence would not be a federal question. The only federal question being involved is whether the state has any power to reg ulate rates, and that this question has been so often decided by the supreme court of the United states that it is no longer subject to discussion in that court, and consequently the writ should not be granted." Judge Gilfillan took the matter under advisement, and will render bis decision to-day. Mr. Cutcheon, of the firm of Flan drau, Squires & Cutcheon, argued the case for the railroad company. THEY NEED BOATS. The West Side Flats and the Upper Levee Again Flooded. If the residents of the West side flats and the flats near the Chestnut street station do not go into the ark-building business, it will not be for lack of water to float their craft on. The steady rains of yesterday continued to swell the volume of the river, and the water is swirling over the top of the St. Louis & St. Paul steamboat landing, but the gauge is still visible and showed a height of 13 feet 3 inches at 7 o'clock last night. The river is still rising, and Sergt. Lyons, of the signal office, says there is no doubt but that it will rise from a foot to a foot and a half higher. This would exceed the height at the last flood, and would work serious damage to many parties on the West side. Twenty four hundreths of an inch of rain had fallen yesterday up to five o'clock. This amount, collected into the river, would cause a very material rise. The situation on the upper flats is now practically the same as at the last great rise. Many of the houses are partially submerged. and a majority of them have been abandoned. A Jake stretches away from the Northwestern stock yards to the granite yards near the Chestnut street station of the Milwau kee. On the West side the water had risen so that the new ball grounds appear only as a line of fence in the Missis sippi river, and the old ball grounds are very well irrigated. In the basement of the American Manufacturing company machinery stood in two feet Of water.but it was being fished out and the factory will be running to-morrow, power being supplied from an engine on one of the upper floors. The Globe laundry has also put in an engine up stairs and will resume work to-day. Sergt. Lyons thinks that the damage done will not much exceed that caused by the last rise, but said that if he lived in some of the houses on the West side, where the water has reached the floors, he would want to sleep with a boat near at hand. AT BED WING. Special to the Globe. Red Wixg, Minn, May B.— The Mis sissippi river is higher to-day than at any time tins season, registering 13.4 feet. The water is within twelve inches of the top of the levee, portions of which are submerged. The lowlands between this place and Lake City are nearly all submerged, and a view from one of the bluffs shows a sheet of water three miles wide and four or five in length. AT I.A CROSSE. Special to the Globe. La Ciios.-E, Wis., May Another rainy day has been experienced, with a slowly rising river. The water now stands twenty-two inches below the highest mark. It is in all the cellars on the west side of Main street and floods hundreds of acres of low ground. Prob ably not more than a dozen people have been driven out of their homes, and those in small houses located where it was well known the water would flood. The Milwaukee Railroad company is raising its track at the low place where it crosses the marsh, and this is all that keeps it out of the water. Although the damage is still confined to a hindrance to business, a general feeling of dis couragement prevails. CHIPPED IN BY CYPRIANS. An Even Thousand Turned Into the City Coffers in One Day. A total of $1,343 in fines was collected in the municipal court yesterday. Ray Early, Nellie Anderson, Madaline Ere linghuysen, Minnie Barton, Lottie Axe. line, Lillie Mack, Nina Clifford, May Costello, Pauline Bell and Nellie Will- I lams paid $100 each for keeping house of ill fame. Two negro dives on Eighth street were raided by the police Mon day night and the drag-net brought in five yellow girls and seven white men, all of whom were assessed $15 each. Mattie Kennedy, an octoroon, was found in tbe upper story of 103 West 'J bird street sleeping with Wing Quay, a Chinaman. The two were taken in by' Sergt. Zirklebach and Officer Godfrey, and Judge Cory assessed the girl s2s and the Chinaman §15. Edna Ryan and Anna Baths, two young women who were arrested by Officers Haney and Davis for street-walking, turned out to be decent ladies and were discharged. STREET SAYINGS. Gen. C. M. MacCartliy left last night for the Hot Springs, to be gone several weeks. lie said he should make it his business to fix as many Southern dele gates as possible for Blame, He said he should be in St. Louis during the convention, and intimated that if there was anything he could do, Cleveland would not be nominated at that gather ing. With the usual sultry weather that prevails in St. Louis in June, and Gen. MacCartliy to help it along, there's going to be fun for all who happen to be in that city on the days of the conven tion. * * *■ Gov. McGill enjoys the quiet which hovers over St. Anthony Park, where he has taken up his home. As soon as the Short Line train, on which he goes home, leaves the union depot, he lavs aside all tlie c ares of slate and is free from the assaults of men hungry for political favors, and the inquisition of newspaper reporters. He has a tele phone in his house, by which he may be reached if he happens to be in the mood. When, however, he wants absolute rest he pulls out the plug,, shuts off the current, and is in oblivion until he sees fit to put back the plug. Since he went to St. Anthony Park a new bloom has come, upon his cheek and there is new vigor in his step. He will enjoy his seclusion until some night a reporter, who has driven out there after short line trains have ceased running, and wakes him from his sleep for an in terview. Then he will refuse to be in terviewed and wish that he had gone even further away from the metropolis. There are many good people living on Dayton's bluff who go to the theater. They claim to be of a sufficient number to warrant the running of a street car down the extension on Wabasha street to Fourth for their accommodation after the opera is over. If the authorities of the Street Railway company would rec ognize their wishes and fix it so that one of the East Seventh street cars could be in waiting on the Wabasha street track, it would be con ferring a favor on these residents of the bluff. They give the average as at least twenty persons from that section of the city who are at the Grand every night, who are obliged to walk to Seventh street and then take their chances on a ride home. They do not like this, and they ant as good accommodations as dwellers in other sections where the street cars run. m Delightful Office for Rent.
