A Jury Disagrees in Shaw's Case
— Flannigan on Trial.
Frank Shaw was the second one of the
gamblers to stand trial. When his case
was called Eugene M. Wilson stepped
forward and took a seat beside James
"Worrell, who has been acting as tlieir
counsel heretofore, which seemed to
show that since W. A. Tanner's convic
tion the indicted parties were not going
to take any chances if a little legal as
sistance would save them. The first
witness called was R. B. Forrest, who
testified about the same as he did in the
trial of Tanner. In speaking of the
number of times he had seen Shaw at
the rooms at SOS Nicollet avenue, he re
ferred to one time when he went there
in January with a friend and lost $20,
and his friend gave his check for $20
more, and the dealer refused to cash it,
but sent them to Shaw, who indicated
to the dealer that he should accept it.
On cross-examination it appeared that
the "friend" spoken of was Lesser
J. E. Waters, who represents the own
ers of the building, produced the notes
signed by Flannigan, Shaw & Tanner,
which were given for the lease and fix
tures. The rest of the testimony was
but a repetition of the testimony in the
ease against Tanner, except that Sum
ner S. Johnson, who stated that he was
the dealer at the time the check that
Forrest spoke of was presented, and
that lie did not refer them to Shaw be
cause he had anything to do with the
game, but because Shaw was better ac
quainted with the business men of the
town than he was, and he was willing to
take his judgment on whether the check
was good or not.
County Attorney Davis then made a
short argument to the jury on the part
of the state, and was followed by Mr.
Wilson, who made the argument for the
defense. Judge Hicks delivered his
charge, and in referring to the question
of reasonable doubt (on which he was
recently reversed by the supreme court),
had the stenographer strike out some
oral instructions and take down some
that he read from text- books. The jury
went out, but after a stay of two hours,
the court ordered it back, and, finding
no agreement, it was discharged.
So Downs Gets the Rock Taken
From an Island Street.
The suit of Samuel E. Rich against
the city to recover §1,100 for rock which
was quarried from the street in front of
his premises, was partially tried before
Judge Young and dismissed. A short
time ago the supreme court decided
that a person owning a lot abutting on a
street, owned to the middle of the street,
and that the city had no title to that
portion of the lot in the street, but only
the right to use it for street purposes:
Rich owns three lots on Nicollet island
fronting on Nicollet street, and on
April 30. ISS6, the city council gave
Henry Downs, a brother of the
Fifth ward alderman of that name,
the right to quarry the stone from Nic
ollet street, between Maple street and
the Manitoba railway track, in consid
eration of Downs grading the street.
This proved to be a pretty good thing
for Downs, for the limestone ledge un
derlying Nicollet Island is composed of
a fine quality of building stone, and it
is estimated by experts that the stone
taken from one-half of the street in
front of the three lots amounted to 2,900
perches, and to be worth at least $1,100.
This is the second case of this
kind which has been brought, the first
one being for rock taken on the other
side of the street, and resulted in a ver
dict for the plaintiff for the value of
the rock taken, but in this case Rich
was unable to prove ids title to the
property adjoining the place from where
the rock was removed.
card in Court Yesterday — Civil
and Criminal Matters Mixed.
Judge Baxter was engaged yesterday
/v hearing the case of Charles Russell
against the Adath Yeshurin Cemetery
association. Russell asks for a perpet
ual injunction against the association to
restrain it from using the cemetery for
burial purposes, as he claims that its
location is such that a valuable spring
of water on his land will become tainted
and ruined, if the association is allowed
to continue to use the cemetery for bur
ial purposes.
Judge Rea was engaged yesterday in
hearing the case of William R. Gregory
vs. Edward M. Christian et, al. This
suit was brought to recover $„.00 which
had been paid in part payment for some
lots in Ashland, Wis. Under the con
tract of sale, by which the plaintiff was
to pay for the lots $5,000, and the de
fendants were to give a good title or
refund the money. Gregory claims
that he has tendered them the balance
of the amount and demanded that they
perfect the title or refund the $3,500
paid, but they have refused to do
Judge Young was engaged yesterday
in hearing the case of Andrew C. Mc-
Farlane against the Minneapolis, Lyn
dale & Minnetonka Railway company
for $10,000 damages. It appeared from
the evidence that McFarlane was a pas

28, 1887, and that the gate wliich is
usually placed on the right of the plat
form of the car to prevent people from
alighting on the opposite track ami
being injured by a passenger train was
not in place, and that when he ar
rived at -eighth street, the

train and knocked down and badly in
jured. He claims that by reason of the
injuries received he has become a con
firmed invalid.
Judge Rea filed a decision yesterday
in the suit of Ambrose L. Lennon vs.

A Joint Committee Discusses an
Ordinance to Provide One.
The joint committee consisting of the
aldermen of the First and Second wards
and the council committees on railroads
and roads and bridges met at the city
hall yesterday afternoon and considered
at some length the Enos Electric Rail
road company ordinance. The ordi
nance was read by Aid. E. M. Johnson,
and a discussion followed. The alder
men, as a rule, declared that no railroad
should run cars over any bridge owned
by the city. J. H. Lawrence, of St.
Paul, president of the company, ad
dressed the meeting. The object of an
elevated road, he said, was based on the
idea of rapid transit. If no better serv
ice was desired than was now being
had, he continued, there would be no
necessity for an elevated road, but in
creasing population and the constant
growth of the territory adjoining de
manded better and faster service. The
railroad he represented was nothing
like the one now in use in New York,
as it did not darken the streets nor in
jure the property. But one line of posts
was used, he said, so that no light
would be sut out from the buildings.
There are some objections to every sys
tem of elevated road, but this one is the
least objectionable of them all. The
road will be a benefit to Minneapolis, as
it gives rapid transit at a small cost. 1
can say to you in all candor that there
is no real estate scheme behind this
project. We can make the run between
here and St. Paul in fifteen minutes,
which you will admit is a decided ad
Aid. Johnson said that he did not
think that the railroad would do Min
neapolis any good. What it would do
would be to help build up St. Paul
and the points between Minneapolis and
St. Paul. 1 do not think there is a man
in the city council who would give this
company" the right to cross the steel
arch bridge or to terminate in Bridge
Mr. Lawrence, in replying, said that
it was very necessary for the road to
secure an entrance into the heart of the
city, so as to be placed on the same foot
ing with other roads. "If the electric
road could get the same travel that the
Milwaukee road and Omaha roads were
now getting," said he, "the fare be
tween Minneapolis and St. Paul could
and would be reduced to 10 cents. What
1 want is to run a line between your
two cities so that you can make fast
time and not be obliged to pay 50 cents
a trip.
Aid. Johnson wanted the whole mat
ter postponed until some action had
been taken by the St. Paul council, but
this was opposed by other members of
the committee. It was finally decided
to lay the matter over for two weeks.
The route of the proposed line is as
Commencing at the intersection of
Division street, west on Division street
to its intersection with Ninth street;
thence west on Ninth street to its inter
section with Central avenue: onCentrat
avenue to its intersection with First

to south of Eastman avenue to the end

The K. of L. Co-Operative Boaa d
to Resume Its "Work.
At the meeting of the general ex
ecutive board of the Knights of Labor
last week, it is learned, it was decided
that the co-operative board, of which J.
P. McGaughey, of Minneapolis, is sec
retary, should resume its labors. It
will be remembered that the
last general assembly took no ac
tion for the support of the co
operative board, and its work has
since then been practically at a stand
still, and several of its enterprises were
thus crippled. Secretary McGaughey
received his instructions from the exec
utive board last Saturday, with the re
quest that he put forth his best endeav
ors to push the work throughout the
country. Mr. McGaughey was asked
yesterday about what the board ex
pected to accomplish this year and how
it was to be done. Be said: "It is so
late tnat the board will be unable to do
very much except to get things in readi
ness for next year. We shall distribute
literature, open up correspondence with
the managers of various enterprises in
all sections of the country, and in a gen
eral way try to boom co-operation in every
section of the country. We shall be
able, doubtless, to get some manufact
uring enterprises under way and help
to brace up those that are already
started. No, no meeting of the board
will be called. Our work will all be
done by correspondence."
Mr. McGaughey said that the board
would not attempt to do anything with
the Crow Wing enterprise this year. He
intimated that it might do something
with it next spring. The board, he
said, would not undertake to do any
thing remarkable until after the next
meeting of the general assembly. He is
satisfied that the co-operative board
will yet prove one of the most success
ful undertakings of the Knights' organ
Departure of the Minnesota Dele
gation for Indianapolis.
The Minnesota delegation to the na
tional Prohibition convention did not
need any artificial spirits yesterday to
create enthusiasm as they boarded the
two Pullman coaches reserved for them
on the Wisconsin Central train which
left at 1:30 p. m. Among the party
were: Rev. J. P. Pinkhani. G. F.
Wells, W. J. Dean and wife, A. P. Peter
son, Rev. T. S. Remstad, Hugh and
George Harrison, 11. W. Knapp, Mr.
and Mrs. Dorsett, Dr. L. W. Denton,
Silas Moftit and wife. Rev. W. J. Van
Fossen and W. M. Lawrence, of Minne
apolis; Father Martin Mahony, C. N.
Woodward and wife, St. Paul; J. N.
Wishart, Mapleton ; C. A. Fosnes, Mon
tevideo; C. 0. Langerson, Hutchinson;
F. A. Richardson, Duluth; K. Johnson,
Ashley; Rev. W. J. Webb, Oregon;
Wilson, Montana; L. P. Grant,
The cars were decorated profusely
with red, white and blue bunting, and
the banners bore the inscription. "Min
nesota Delegation," and the first verse
of "My Country 'Tis of Thee," as a
motto. Quite a crowd of friends and
cold water people were present to bid
the delegation God speed, and the de
parture was preceded by some brief
speeches. Rev. J. S. Pinkhani said the
occasion reminded him of another con
vention he attended in 1850 in Philadel
phia, when the prohibition of negro
slavery was demanded, now it was the
prohibition of slavery to the liquor
traffic that is demanded. We go to
Indianapolis he said, to sound the voice
of victory. *S8 draws us a million and
a half votes nearer the goal, and '02 will

Editor 11. W. Knapp was then called
forward and was presented with a gold
headed cane by E. B. Trubey. Mr.
Knapp, who is an enthusiastic female
suffragist as well as prohibitionist, ut
tered a whoop, and throwing away his
wooden cane and swinging the gift
around his head cried "I'll use this on

as the train pulled away.
One of the humorous features of the
occasion was the presentation of a
"crank" machine by the Fisk quartette.
It turns with a crank and gives out a
noise that sounds like a cross between a
coffee mill and an old-fashioned police
rattle. It will be used as a chestnut
The case against John B. Flannigan
was immediately called after the jury
had retired in the case against Shaw.
No new testimony was given in his case,

For the Coppers— Office of Matron
for the Central Station Created.
At the meeting of the police commis
sion yesterday, Patrolman Griffin was
arraigned on a charge of drunkenness.
After a full and careful investigation it
was found that he was not wholly to
blame. About a week ago he was sud
denly taken sick while) onduty. and
went to a physician, who prescribed
quinine. Griffin went to a drug store,
had the quinine put up, and the clerk
gave it to him in whisky. Griffin was
very weak, and the liquor went directly
to his *head. He was reprimanded and
fined $10 by the commission, after prom
ising to be more careful in the future.
The communication received from la
dies connected with the Woman's
Christian association, the Woman's
Christian Temperance union and the
Sisterhood of Bethany, a few days ago,
asking that a matron be placed at the
Central station to take charge of female
prisoners was taken up. It was decided
to create the office of matron of the Cen
tral station, and the selection of a
matron was left to the ladies sending in
the petition.
Four applications from wouid-be po
licemen and four from men desiring to
be appointed as specials were received
and referred to the committee on ap
pointment and discipline. The pay roll
for May, $13,395.03, and bills amounting
to $2,290.32 were approved.
Nothing in the Police Manual
About Mad Dogs.
The police manual and book of etti
quette should be amended so as to in
clude directions to patrolmen governing
the course to be followed in the treat
ment of mad dogs. Sunday afternoon a
young son of Simon Gittelson, residing
at 1403 Second avenue south, was
bitten by a dog owned by A.
Allen, at 412 Washington avenue
north. Mr. Gilletson appealed to Patrol
man "No. 1" to put an end to the dog's
existence. The patrolman gravely gave
the information that a warrant must
first be obtained. Mr. Gittelson
then repaired to police head
quarters in quest of a war
rant (?) where Sergt. Nelson, after
weighing the matter carefully, gave it as
his opinion that Mr. Gittelson should
shoot the dog himself. Mr. Gittelson
went back and found several patrolmen
consulting as to what should be done.
After an hour's debate they decided the
dog must die. The animal was then
corralled its owner's back yard and
Legal Talent as Well as Printing
From the Outside.
It will be remembered that when the
police commission caused the arrest of
Detective Quinlan upon the charge of
collusion in the escape of Franklin, the
forger, the board declined the services
of County Attorney Davis, and called in
the firm of Robinson & Baker as its
legal advisors. When the case came
to trial County Attorney Davis
objected to having his office usurped in
this flagrant manner, and the services
of the commission's legal team were, of
a purely ornamental nature. Never
theless the following itemized bill yes

The committee evidently thought the
commission had no right to employ
outside legal talent while the county
furnishes officials to perform such work,
and action upon the bill was postponed.
Another bill from the commission, for
plumbing at the central station, to
which $500 for "extras" had been added,
was also postponed for exclanation.
One noticeable thing about the bill of
Robinson & Baker is that it is pre
sented after the report of the police
commission was submitted to the coun
cil. It was evidently thought that it
might spoil the contour of the picture
of the economy practiced in the depart
ment, so graphically described in

A Demonstration of Its Power
Given Yesterday.
A locomotive on the Minneapolis &
St. Louis road arrived at that depot
last evening about 6 o'clock with a new
radial valve gear attached, a patent of
John Grimes, a Minneapolis machinist,
mention of which was made in
Sunday's Globe. The announce
ment was pieviously made that
engine with its patent attachment
would arrive at 3 p. m., and at that time
a large number ot master mechanics,
railroad officials and prominent citizens
were present, but owing to the delay
they took their departure. Mr. Wilson,
the master mechanic of the St. Louis,
managed to pick up twenty-one cars of
iron, stone, etc., and attempted to climb
the Chaska hill, which is on a grade of
seventy-five feet to the mile. The
engine was stopped near the
summit, and then started with the
new appliance at work, and easily car
ried the train over the hill, greatly to
Mr. Wilson's astonishment. The en
gine will be on exhibition at the St.
Louis depot from 9a. m. until 2 p. m.
to-day, and then taken to the Northern
Pacilic yards in St. Paul for a test in
the afternoon.

Want the Street Cleared.
Residents of the East side, in the
vicinity of Second venue north, from
Maine street ro Fifth street, are pre
paring a petition to the council asking
that some action be taken toward clear
ing Second avenue between the points
mentioned. As the case stands now, it
is almost impossible to use the street
and avenue at all, and it is
taken up in the main by the
Omaha tracks. There are two or three
big stone quarries along the avenue, also,
and piles of stone and debris constantly
block what little space is not taken. up
by the tracks. Near Fourth street there
is a wood yard, and wood is piled .half
way across the avenue. At this point
is a railroad switch, and considerable
complaint is beine made in regard to it,
as the franchise granting the Omaha
the right of way there stipulated that
but, one track should be laid in the street
there. This petition is being exten
sively signed, and will be presented to
the council Friday.
He Is Not a Candidate.
To the Editor of the Globe.
1 notice in Sunday's Globe that my
name is mentioned as a candidate for
county commissioner at the approaching
election this fall. Will you please allow
me to say that I am not a candidate for
office at all: would not qualify if
elected. The people of Hennepin
county have always been very kind to
me: have frequently cast their suf
frages for me for offices of high trust.for
which I am most grateful, but I want to
see younger and better men occupy po
sitions which, perhaps, I was qualified
for in "days long irone,*' when it did
not require so much talent to fulfill the
duties of the office as it does now.
Aside from all of these considerations, I
am, and if my life is spared. 1 shall be,
engaged in a work which will require a
year or two to complete: hence I shall
have no time to devote to any office
whatever. John 11. Stevens.

The Night Horse School.
Prof. Gleason, the horse tamer, was
greeted by a good audience at the
Washington rink last evening and gave
one of the most interesting exhibitions
of his engagement, handling a number
of shyers and kickers, a four-year-old
colt that had never been driven before
and a pair of wild mustang kickers.
The feature of to-night's performance
will be the undertaking of the pro
fessor to handle a wild Idaho horse that
has only been in the city eight days.
Five trainers have attempted to break
him to harness, but have all failed.
Prof. Gleason has expressed his willing

A Jerusalem correspondent writes that the Holy
City is fast becoming again the city of the Jews. In
1880 there were not more than 5,000 Jews there;
now there are more than 30,000. Recent Russian
persecutions have led thousands to make their
homes there, and although the Turkish government
forbids all Jews who are not residents of Jerusalem
to remain longer than 30 days, yet a judicious appli
cation of bribes enables them to stay there as long
as they please without molestation. "Wealthy Jews
have built hospitals and founded homes, and many
of the refugees who are poor live from the charity of
their brethren. Make a judicious application of your
wealth by purchasing Summer Clothing, Summer
Underwear, Summer Hats, Summer Hosiery, at the
UTK Clothing House, Minneapolis.
