Against a YardmastCr They Will
Not Strike.
The report that the Manitoba switch
men would strike is denied by all the
men working in the Minneapolis yard.
They claim that, while some of the men
have been discharged, there is no griev
ance against the road, but against Gen
eral Yardmaster J. C. Brearley. Frank
Sweeney, vice grand master of the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid association, in
speaking of the matter yesterday, said:
"The men have made no complaint
against the road, nor has there been
any idea of going on a strike. But the
boys have received considerable ill
treatment at the hands of General Yard
master Brearley, and that is where the
whole trouble lies. The matter has
been laid before Division Superintend
ent Meyers for settlement, and, unless
1 am mistaken, something will drop.
"1 do not know*" said W. W. Berry,
"what the grievance of the men is.
Upon hearing the report I went at
once to Supt. Russell's office, where 1
learned that complaints had been tiled
and laid over awaiting the arrival of
Supt. Mayer, of the Breckinridge di
vision of the Manitoba, when they will
be submitted to him. He is expected
back to-morrow. 1 did not learn the ex
act motive of the grievance, but under
stood that it had something to do with
the recent discharge of several men in
the yards. There were two crews of
three men each, together with several
extras released last week. One crew
worked on the east side and the other
on the west and they were discharged
simply because there wasn't work
enough to keep them employed, and not
because of incompetency. Of course we
selected the men who had been for the
shortest time with the company and
acted in every way fairly with the older
A Public Entertainment in Their
Behalf To-Night.
About 175 of the striking girls from
Shot well, Clerihew & Lothman's at
tended the meeting at the hall, 250 Sec
ond avenue south, yesterday afternoon.
The reports showed that the girls were
gradually getting other places, and
funds were distributed for the support
of those needing assistance. Rev.
Father McGolrick was present, and
made some remarks of an encouraging
nature, promising financial and moral
support, as well. He said that no more
of the firm's work would be done at the
House of the Good Shepherd, and the
statement was greeted with applause.
Rev. W. Wilkinson, of St. Andrew's
Episcopal church, was present, and was
decidedly emphatic in commending the
course pursued by the girls thus far.
The following was announced as the
programme of the entertainment prof
fered the girls by Mrs. T.B.Walker,
Mrs. Van Cleve, and other prominent
ladies, who have interested themselves
in their behalf, to be given at Harmonia
hall this evening:
Instrumental Selections... .Miss Jennie Kelly
Address Mrs. C. C. Van Cleve
Instrumental Duet... Misses Marble and Only
Address Rev. W. Wilkinson
Vocal Solo f'rof. Mons Baker
Address , Mrs. E. M. S. Marble
Mrs. Marble is to preside, and Clara
Holbrook Smith will be invited to speak
if she returns to the city in time to be
present. Father McGolrick will also
probably deliver an address. The ad
mission to the hall will be free, and the
public is cordially invited.
The Milling Situation Unsatisfac
tory and a Temporary Shut-
Dow Probable.
There was the expected decline in the
flour output last week, this being due to
the idleness of two more mills, says the
Miller. The product aggregated 108,000
barrels— averaging 28,100 barrels daily—
against 181,800 barrels the week before,
and 105,150 barrels for the correspond
ing time in 18*7. One of the mills idle
last week, 1,500 barrels capacity, re
sumed work Monday, making a total of
twenty that are now running. While
all of these mills are being operated
strong, the milling situation is still un
satisfactory, and some of them are liable
to be shut down at any time. There are
several whose owners are undecided as
to closing down or running,and it would
not cause surprise if half a dozen of
those now grinding stopped work tem
porarily by Saturday night. The Hour
market is Mill unsettled, as a result of
fluctuations in wheat, sales are light.
There is little or nothing doing on for
eign account. The direct export of
flour last week showed a falling off, be
ing only 47.800 barrels, against 00,750
the week before, and 82,700 for the week
ending April 21.
Who Do Minneapolis Sights in a
Flying Visit.
A large party of Kentuckians, who
are doing the Northwest, and especially
Little Falls, Minn., where many of
them are. interested in the water power,
arrived at the union depot in a special
vestibule train at 2 o'clock yesterday.
The party was met at the depot by a
committee of citizens and from "the
board of trade consisting of Hon.
Thomas Lowry, A. J. Boardman, J. B.
Bassett, and Charles P. Lovell, and
were taken all over the city in car
riages and shown the principal points
of interest. The party left late in the
afternoon for Little Falls, where a party
of Minneapolis men will go to-day.
Gone But Not Forgotten—
Smith's Creditors.
As published in the Globe yester
day, James J. Smith, known by the
sobriquet of "Smith the informer," is
missing, and is not expected to return
to the city. It cannot be accurately esti
mated just how many he induced to loan
him money or indorse his notes, for
those who consider they have been
losers by the result of their misplaced
confidence in his integrity, are loth to
admit the extent of their presumed
losses. The Crusaders were very re
ticent yesterday, and could not be in
duced to talk upon the subject. Their
action, however, in deposing him as
president, and electing Bernard Nionsso
in his stead, is significant.
There is an error in the statement
that M.W.Nash is a sufferer to the extent
of $150. It appears that he indorsed a
note for that amount jointly with
Michael Welch and is only held for $75.
W.J. Sheehan, who indorsed a note for
fIOO, succeeded in inducing Smith to
pay back $40, and is only $120 out. P.
H. Gibbons admits that he loses to the
extent of something like $180. Shaefer
Bros., grocers, have a bill of $140 they
would like to have paid, and Benard
Mousso, an intimate friend of Smith's,
announces that he can be counted with
USB slain for a small amount.

An Express Company That Gets
There With Its Employes.
"IPs a cussed shame, and for 2 cents
I would make a great big kick, if I was
sure of getting another situation," said
an employe of the American Express
company yesterday while talking with a
friend. V
"What's that? Whs* do you mean?"
"I mean just this," was the reply.
"Every employe of the American Ex
press company is required and
compelled to furnish three first
class references from good-standing
business men before he can go to
work. Then he is also required to give
bonds through the American Assurity
Company of New York, and as that
company is composed entirely of Amer
ican Express officials, it looks to me
like a big steal.. When May 1 comes
around about 125 is taken from the pay
of every messenger, clerk, driver, etc",
to pay this American Assurity company.
Just figure up the income derived from
taking the *25 from the thousands of
messengers and employes. Why, I
know of one agent at a small station
who pays more for his bonds than he
receives for his services; and still cap
italists complain when men strike."
A Charity Expert on How to Get
On in the World.
The carpenter's trade, the shoe
maker's trade, the printer's trade and
many other trades and occupations are
known to the world, but that there is a
charity trade is not so well known, and
to make that fact more thoroughly known
and understood is the object of this
article. A certain man, whose name
for various reasons is withheld, who re
cently resided in South Minneapolis, is
a skilled workman at his trade, which
is that peculiar one known as a charity
expert. He hails from Tennessee,
where he owns $800 worth of property
which he claims he can't sell; from
Jacksonville, 111., and from the swamps
of Arkansas— in fact, it would be hard
to name a place that he hadn't hailed
from at one time or another - in his
checkered career, lie has a wife and
three children, two boys and a girl.
When he wants to play his charity
game he pretends to desert his wife, as
he did the first time he came to Minne
apolis. Then his wife and children are
thrown upon the town which he leaves
for support. By and by the town gets
tired of supporting them, and the wife
says if she could only get enough
money to take her and the children to
the husband all would be well with them.
To get rid of them the authorities of
the town give them transportation
money, and thus the experts are again
reunited in the bonds of matrimonial
bliss. He is a Grand Army man, and
works that racket for all it is worth.
He first came here from Jacksonville,
111., through the aid of the ('rand Army
boys. After staying here a while he got
a pass from the city poor department,
to Louisville. Ky., where his family
was. Minneapolis thought she had
got rid of him, but alas! it was
not so. Soon all the family were
en route for Minneapolis. They arrived
here at the depot just as winter was
about to set in. The father had the
key to the Friendly Inn, and thought
that he anil the family could lodge
there, but to his discomfiture, he found,
upon arrival, that the Friendly
Inn had disappeared. So the family
were obliged to stay in the depot
all night. Their apparently sad case
got noised abroad, and charity began
to pour in. They* stayed Here all
last winter, and now the charity
expert has deserted them again,
leaving dear Mrs. and her
children to the tender mercies of the
citizens of Minneapolis. This is the tenth
time that he has deserted (?) his wife.
She is a fat, jolly woman, and her chil
dren are in good condition. A gentle
man who was anxious to find out her
circumstances called on her one day
last winter. Said he to her: "How do
you like Minneapolis?" "Oh! I think
it is a real nice place," she replied.
"The people are so kind." She was
frying something when the gentleman
called, and as she traveled about the
room, from time to time turning over
the cakes upon the stove, she sang tra
la-la, tra-la-la to the music of the hissing
flap-jacks, giving all the symptoms of a
very contented frame of mind. The
visitor intimated to another person the
next day alter the call that he felt like
writing an article entitled "The Annals
of a Happy Family," but prudence got
the better of his feelings, for he never
wrote it. The family are traveling
mendicants. They never pay a debt
and make no pretense of paying rent.
Last winter they resided in four differ
ent parts of Minneapolis. The husband
has always a prospective job in view, on
the strength of which he borrows money
which he never repays. He is a strong
Methodist and has the "Amen" accent
down to perfection. On the strength of
this fie gets a great deal of help from
his Methodist brethren. He has the ap
pearance of an honest, hard-working
but unfortunate man. He is generous
to a fault (with his mouth) to any one
from whom he thinks he may get"some
money. He is teaching his oldest son
the trade, and it is only a question of a
short time when the son will emerge
from his apprenticeship, a full-fledged
charity expert. The wife and children
are now playing the distress dodge for
all it is worth. Soon they will try the
transportation trick. May Lucifer grant
them success in all their undertakings.
It is suspected that the recent rainy
weather is a visitation of Divine wrath,
indicative of displeasure, because of
the action of the council in taking city
printing away from the Tribune.

Are Such Things Common?
To the Editor of the Globe.
A member of my congregation, Ole
Anderson, working at Diamond sawmill,
Minneapolis (Smith & Richardson), was
summoned as a witness in a damage
suit brought by another workingman in
the same mill, who had lost his hand by
the pretended carelessness of the com
pany. Mr. Anderson told the plain
truth before the court. His information
was not in favor of the company. The
next day he was discharged from his
work. I only want this brought to the
attention of the public, and I want to
know if this is a common practice among
rich employers to force poor working
men to testify asainst their conviction
by taking their daily bread from them,
if they do not witness in their favor?

He Didn't Say It.
To the Editor of the Globe.
In your report of the proceedings of
St. l'aul presbytery in to-day's paper,
third page, you cause me to say:
"While we do not censure Dr. West we
still think he should be censured
roundly." I did not say it nor anything
like it. 1 simply read the report in the
absence of the chairman of the com
mittee. During the debate the reading
of the report was called for a number of
times, and the reporter must have mis
taken one of these called readings for
a personal expression. Respectfully
yours, R. E. Hawley.

The Two Names Sweep Minneapolis
Everything Goes One Way— Contest In
the Fourth— The Defegates
Ames and Winston.
They swept along together and car
ried the city like wildfire.
The Democratic primary elections
were held last night, and if there was
any opposition to either it was lost in
the general shuffle. The primaries,
with a few exceptions, were very quiet,
but were remarkable for the heavy votes
polled, under the circumstances. There
was nothing to call out a particularly
large attendance and no especial fight
on hand, but the Democrats are vigor
ous and alert, and the first
call of the campaign found them ready
to respond in force. A primary was
held in probably every precinct in the
city, but several of the outlying wards
failed to report the results.
A bird's eye view of the delegates
elected show a sweeping indorsement of
A. A. Ames and P. B. Winston. It is
believed that the latter will carry the
county by a solid vote. There was not
precisely an issue on Mayor Ames'
newly announced candidacy for dele
gate at large, but the names of the
delegates disclose friends of the mayor
in every direction. Among these are
many who are friendly to Doran, and at
the same time friendly to Glenn, but
they are disposed to avoid any kind of a
conflict, and prefer to look at the party
rather than at any members of
it. There are not a few
prominent men in the party who
are disposed to look upon the Ames-
Doran row with disgust, and to unhesi
tatingly say that both men are presum
ing on their popularity and on the
claims they have on the party. It is be
lieved that neither Glenn nor Doran
made any particular fight.
The list of delegates elected last night,
as far as obtainable, is as follows:

A Lively Scene in the Third Pre
cinct of the Fourth.
The only precinct in the city which
developed anything like a fight was the
Third precinct of the Fourth ward.
Such party wheel horses as A. J.
Ankeny, Bernard Cloutier, C. B.
Maben and A. D. Smith live
in this precinct, and an
old fight is on. Maben has always op
posed Cloutier, and his paper, the Free
Lance, has frequently attempted to
puncture the popular alderman below
the short ribs. Ankeny has always
stood by Cloutier, and Smith has driven
in the same team. Maben gave it out
that neither Ankeny nor smith could
go as delegates to this convention,
and they accepted the defiance. Ankeny
became a candidate, and Smith went to
work for him. When the primary was
called to order an immense crowd of
voters assembled, and it at once became
evident that the Ankeny cohorts were
in a large majority. This was decidedly
settled when the following resolution
went through with a whoop:
Whereas, Hon. Bernard Cloutier, one
of the aldermen in the city council from
the Fourth ward, has by his long serv
ice and experience given us fall oppor
tunity to judge of the fitness of our se
lection; and
Whereas, Aspersions have lately been
made in the public press upon the gen
eral character and ability of the Demo
cratic members of the city council; be
it therefore
Resolved, by the Democrats of the
Third precinct of the Fourth ward, now
in convention duly assembled, that so
far as said aspersions may be construed
as in any way reflecting upon Aid.
Cloutier. we hereby indignantly resent
the same as being false, unfounded
and unjust; that we cordially indorse
and approve his course in the
council as being That of a public officer
devoted to the best interest of the peo
ple and as exhibiting a watchful vigil
ance, an untiring energy, an unsullied
integrity of character and a discrim
inating judgment, which we could cor
dially commend as a fit pattern for our
Republican brethren.
The caucus then got down to business,
and the Ankeny* delegation was elected
by a vote of '218 to 74 tor the Maoen con
tingent. The result was regarded as a
substantial boom for Ankeny for mayor.
Union With .Eastman, of Anoka,
to Down Munn, of Ramsey.
, The strength in the delegation sent by
Hennepin county to the Republican dis
trict convention has been quiet and
serene. ' Just where the delegation
stands no one knows, as several men are'
claiming to own it, body, boots and
breeches. The ' Eustis people' say
Willy urn Henry lias a decided
majority and is sure of election, but the
antis deny this in language more vigor
ous than courtly. It is understood R.
B. Langdon has unqualifiedly with
drawn and that either F. F. Davis. or
E.J.Davenport will be .Lis -legatees.
C. N. Smith Ts spying little and declares
he is doing no work, but his lieutenants
nave been allowing no grass to linger
beneath their feet. " id ■
-Yesterday a delegation came down
from Anoka with the information that
an Eustis deal had been quietly con
summated. It appears that Eustis has
been anxious to knock out M. D. Muni",'
of St. Paul, who is opposed
to Blame, and this end has,
made a combination on the outside
in favor of Alvah Eastman, editor of
the Anoka Herald. The scheme is to
unite Anoka and Hennepin counties for
Eustis and Easman, and get enough
strength thereby to swing the conven
tion and knock Bamsey county but.'
Mr. Eastman was down yesterday, but
was discreetly silent on the subject.'
Hennepin county nearly controls the
convention, and with Anoka would have
everything Jits own way. j
Dead Sure Announcements From
Both Sides.
"If the Glove wants to announce the
next mayor of Minneapolis," said a
prominent Democrat, yesterday, "I can
give it away."
"And it is — "
"P. B. Winston or A, T. Ankeny,
sure. Either is a good man, and I can't
say which is ahead, but one of them will
be the next mayor."
"Now, if you' want to know for sure
who will be the next mayor," said a Be
publican who was near, "I will tell you.
It will be D. M. Clough or F. H. Board
man. Boardman will be brought out by
the representatives of the younger ele
ment ot the party."
"I thought Lane was the choice of the
young Republicans."
"He might well have been, but Lane
won't have it. lie would make a great'
run, but he has said he would have noth
ing to do with it."
"Then what becomes of Cooley,
Schlener, Lars Swenson and others?"
"All talk. Announce what 1 have
said and the Globe will have announced
the next mayor."
Senator Buckman Talks.
Jenator C. B. Buckman, of St. Cloud,
was in the city yesterday. He said he
had not in any way signified his inten
tion of entering the congressional con
test, but that he might do so, as his ;
friends wished him to. He will decide
upon his course the latter part of ■ this
week. He considered the gubernatorial
question badly mixed, but said he
thought that, according to all precedent,
McGill was entitled to the nomination.
"But," he added, "it is a .question as to
whether or not he can be elected.
Merriam, while not the best man to run,
is not unpopular, and might win.
Scheffer made "a great blunder of join
ing hands with the Fanners' alliance.
If lie should inn independent it would
be bad for the Republican party."

The wedding of Miss Heck McClary,
daughter of Rev. P. M. McClary, and
Arthur Merriman occurred at the First
Methodist church last evening. It was
of unusual interest to present and past

Verdict of Acquittal.
The jury in the case of John Nelson, \
indicted for stealing a span of horses
from Rev. B. Y. Coffin, of the village of'
Champlin, on the night of the 6th of
last January, rendered a verdict of not
guilty. The case was given to the jury!
about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and a
verdict was not agreed upon until '.)
o'clock last evening. The verdict was i
not a surprise, as the case for the state
was considered to be rather weak, the
evidence being entirely circumstantial
and this being the second trial of the
case; the jury on the former trial, which

Blethen and Haskell Exchange the Tri
bune and Journal.
The Tribune %ill Know Blethen No
mo More-Rumors of His Morning 7
Democratic Paper.
, After three years and a half as man
ager of the daily Minneapolis Tribune
and Weekly Farmers' Tribune, Alden
; f J- Blethen is to retire and seek another
field. The announcement was made
yesterday that he had sold his interest
in the Tribune to William Edwin Has
kell, and had acquired by barter,
sale or exchange, the latter's
interest in the Evening Journal.
The Journal has been virtually the
evening edition of the Tribune, and
the change only amounts to an ex
;change, viz: instead of owning the two
1 papers jointly, the partnership is dis
* solved. Blethen takes one boat of the
catamaran, Haskells the other, and
each goes his own way. In the
official announcement Mr. Blethen is at
pains to have it made prominent
that he reserves a morning franchise of
the United Press association, and will
"hereafter be identified entirely with
such newspaper enterprise as he may
choose to undertake." This is the
nature of a bid for himself and the
paper in which he holds a controlling
interest. For the past year he has had
a strong desiret o establish a morning
Democratic daily, and probably thinks
he has figured himself into a position
which will enable him to carry out
It may astonish some that he should
entertain such a notion in view of his
persistent and unreasonable attacks
upon Democrats, both collectively and
individually, but he considers that busi
ness is business, and that with a little
practice he might denounce the Repub
licans with as much ease as he has lam
pooned the Democrats. He has made
overtures to a number of moneyed
Democrats, but has received little or no
encouragement. In the event that this
plan does not work, morning and noon
editions may be added to the Journal,
and it may tie run as will best suit the
business office. It has been apparent
for some time that there would be a
change, and the announcement is not
altogether a surprise. It is not likely to
prove beneficial to either paper. If the
Tribune has made any progress it is due
to Blethen's rabid and awkward at
tempts at jouralistic enterprise. The
Journal, under the management of
Lucien Swift, Jr., has, perhaps, made
the most of an open field, and the in
jection of Blethen's ideas and methods
is not likely to improve it as a news
paper, and that is the only feature of its
career in which the public is interested.
What Maj. Haskell will do for the
Tribune is somewhat problematical, but
it is not anticipated that he will
if the record of the past is any guaran
tee of the future, and it is understood
that Haskell pere will not identify
himself with the paper. It is needless
to say that the gifted journalists em
ployed on both sheets are not a little dis
concerted,the Journal men especially so.
The disagreements of Messrs. Blethen
mid Haskell have been felt for some
time, in the city department of the Trbi
uhe. Prior to the appearance of the
editorial in which Mrs. Cleveland was
ihsulted, the two partners used to oc
cupy the same room, with only a Japanese
fire screen between them. Then the row
began. Blethen was generally regarded
as the author of the objectionable arti
cle, and the burning in effigy, as well as
the bitter denunciation which he re
ceived from all sides, made him sore.
j As a result he assumed control of the
editorial columns, while Maj. Haskell
moved up one floor and entrenched him
self behind an immense roller-top desk
anil afterwards gave oiders as manag
ing editor, .while he altered his signa
ture from Will E. Haskell to. William
Edwin Haskell, as a sort of a signal that
he intended to interest himself more act
ively. Abbott Blunt, before managing
editor de facto, was. consigned to
the exchanges and paragraph work,
and William Edwin nominally
fillled ills place. Charles Alf
Williams, the city editor, was allowed
to indulge his fancy at dramatic and
specialty work, and James Gray,
fresh from college, succeeded him.
Blethen confined himself more closely
to the business oflice than ever
for a time, and contented him
self with editing want advertisements
and dallying with circulation statistics.
The departure of Dr. Albert Shaw for
Europe, however, brought the ex
pedagogue and Kansas City attorney to
the front again as an editorial writer, as
was at the time made apparent by a
series of •.'crank'' editorials, and
latterly by some bitter and unreason
able attacks upon the city council,
which may have hastened the crisis.
The local, or city department, failed to
suit him, and Mr. Williams, who had in
the meantime gone to Kansas City, was
recalled to fill his old position, only to
find upon arriving that the paper
had changed hands. Although he
has announced that he intends
to accept a position under Haskell,
it is conjectured that he may ultimately
succeed W. E. Brownlee as city editor
of the Journal, as lie has always been a
favorite with Blethen. This has a some
what demoralizing effect upon the Jour
nal's crew of hired men, and yesterday
they seemed hardly to know whether to
go or stay.
