Martin Reagan, a laborer employed by a street grading contractor at Merriam Park, came to the city Monday night and got drunk. lie missed the last train home and in wandering aimlessly about at 2 o'clock yesterday morning found his way into the engine room of the Pioneer Press, where the two firemen, Harry Jones and William O'Brien, were making way with the contents of a growler. They wanted Reagan to drink, which be did. When the beer was gone they sent him alter more, but he couldn't find a saloon open and came back without any. The coal shovelers were in a hilarious mood and they threw a rope about the unsophisticated Rea gan and prepared to hang him. He ob jected, but was overpowered and gagged and they pulled the rope taunt over a beam, shutting off his wind. While he was suspended in this way, Reagan as serts that one of the men went through his pockets and secured all his money, amounting to _t...i(». Then they let him down, patted him on the head, "told him lie was a good fellow and kicked him out. lie went directly to the central station and notified the police, and half an hour later O'Brien -and Jones were arrested by Sergt. Switzer. In the po lice court yesterday they pleaded not guilty and were held in $200 bail each tor a hearing to-day. MR. McCLUXG'S FUNERAL. Lars -e Attendance of Old Friends oft he Deceased.

Robertson and others. WEIGHERS AY ANTED. A Conference Between Railroad Commissioners and St. Paul Business Men. A meeting of the St. Paul board of trade was held yesterday afternoon with the railroad and warehouse com missioners. The session was called on account of the fact that the Minneapo lis & St. Louis and the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City Railway companies have recently put in scales for weigh ing grain hauled by teams for track de livery. The board of trade accordingly requests the commissioners to appoint two weighmasters, The law, however, does not provide for weighing grain on track scales; nor does it oblige any one hauling grain to weigh it on such scales. Hence, the commission does not see its way clear to appoint these weighers, who would virtually be asked to give certificates on cars without knowing whether or not the whole amount had , been properly weighed. The request has not been denied, however, but the case is still under advisement. A CHURCH ORGANIZED. St. Mark's Reformed Episcopal Church Formed Out of Calvary Mission. In February, 18S4, Rev. Edward D. Neill gathered a small band of willing workers together, and, with their aid, organized Calvary Mission. It was not a great while before they erected a very handsome little building on Port land avenue and Dale street, and since then their number has been steadily in creasing. It became so large that they solved to organize into a full-fledged church. Dr. 'ill's many duties at Macalester caused him to secure an as sistant in the person of Rev. Henry F. Butler, formerly pastor of the Eman uel Reformed Episcopal church in Chi cago. He was selected to carry on the work, and at once issued a call, accord ing to law, for the congregation to meet and organize into a "corporate body. The meeting was held in the chapel last evening and the church organized. A greater portion of the congregation was present, including quite a number of bright looking young folks. The St. Mark's Reformed .Episcopal church was the name adopted, and the following were the officers elected: Senior warden, S. H. Dyer; junior war den, F. D. Willis ; vestrymen, John Nor cott, Charles George and Clarence George; deputy to general council, S.H. Dyer; alternate. Clarence George. The parish council will be composed of the junior and senior wardens. At present the membership .of the church is between fifty and seventy-five, and efforts will be made to increase it largely. Bey. Mr. Butler is a bard worker, and will find able assis tants in ■ the new officers. CAUGHT ON THE CURB. The Black Cat Craze — Judge Egan's Hobby — The Tower Tramp's Soliloquy on Little Phil. And now the festive St. Paul maid who in spring clothes doth bud, when crossing streets lifts up her dress and murmurs," the mud." . *- * "A peculiar craze exists just now among the young society ladies of St. Anthony hill," said a young man yes terday, -'and I learned of it through my sister. It is the desire to own a black cat. Of course everybody knows that Southern people have always adhered to the supersition that black cats bring good luck, but these young ladies claim a different sort of benefit. They say that the possession of a black cat will insure continual happiness when they marry, and, best of all, bring them just the kind of husband they desire, the ideal of fiction, you know. Yes, there is a decided demand for black cats." * * * Judge Egan likes variety. This was developed yesterday to the satisfaction of a score of friends, also the fact that he has a peculiar hobby. He entered the county clerk's office wearing a idi lapidated soft hat, and reappeared an instant later with a glossy plug. When asked where he had left the soft hat he stoutly denied having worn anything all day but the plug. It was then told by one who knows, that the judge has two hats on deposit in that office, two at the city hall, one at the United States court and three in his office. When down town, he can, at a moment's notice and a short walk, wear a hat according to the weather, or as inclination strikes him. Through all of this he asserts that he has but one hat. * * "Ah, me," sadly mused the tramp in the tower, "I hear with infinite regret that the sands of Little Phil's noble life are slowly running out. And while I sit me here in saddened thought, I am moved to compare his life with the hour glass. When first reversed the glass is full, the grains of sand so tightly packed that there is no room to see and study the character of each individual grain. It is a sort of confusion, as every grain frantically endeavors to pass the narrow channel "first. Herein "is seen Little Phil's youth, bubbling over with vision ary ambitions and boyish desires. They are so many and so changing that one cannot therein study the man of the future. "The sand is half run out. There is room for the light of the world to enter and each grain is shown in full relief. The little ones have gone; the larger ones remain. Herein 1 find his middle age and molded character. The vanished grains are those youthful visions and theories, the solid sifted matter repre sents the man as we all know him. "But alas, they, too, move slowly through that narrow aperture. The num ber grows smaller and smaller. But, look! the end approaches, the last gram is gone. Naught is left save the empty shell." THIS SETTLES IT. Decisions in Three Cases "by the Highest State Court. The supreme court yesterday ren dered three decisions, as follows: John P. Lobby, appellant, vs. The Board of County Commissioners of Anoka County, respondent. Syllabus— lt is the official duty of a county treasurer to receive, keep and disburse all money belonging to his county in respect to which no specific provision is otherwise made. So held concerning the proceeds of the sale of county bonds issued to raise money for building a bridge. Hence the county treasurer was not entitled to extra com pensation therefor, although the board of county commissioners had agreed to pay the same. Order sustaining de murrer affirmed. Dickinson, J. Jerry Smith, respondent, vs. The Minne sota Transfer Packing Company, ap pellant. Syllabus— The plaintiff having sold personal property to the defendant with the condition that the.latter might return it within a stated time, and it appearing upon the trial of an action to recover the price, that a part of the property had been returned to and kept by the plaintiff, and nothing more be ing shown, the returning of the prop erty will be regarded as having been pursuant to the stipulated condition, and the plaintiff cannot recover the price of the whole property included in the contract. Order reversed. Dickinson, J. . In . the matter of the estate of Jeremiah McCarthy, deceased; Mary McCarthy, . administratrix, vs. Mary C. Peel, re spondent. . Syllabus— A guardian of an infant having died without having rendered an account of -his guardianship to the probate court which appointed him. that court had jurisdiction to .require the personal representative of the deceased to appear and render an account in re spect to moneys of the ward which had been received by the guardian. Judg ment affirmed. .; Dickinson, J. . • SUPHKME COURT, •Three cases were argued and sub THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING ' MAY 30, ■ 1888; mitted in the surpeme court yesterday, as follows: James K.

The Sixteenth District lodge. I. O. G. T., was in session all day yesterday, in Relief Society hall, 141 East Ninth street. In addition to the routine work of the lodge, a .resolu tion pledging the support of the lodge to the Prohibition party was adopted, and a telegram was sent to the convention of that party in Indian apolis urging the convention to stand firm for woman's suffrage. The follow ing officers were elected: Charles W. Blair. D. C. T.; W. B. Reed, D. C; M. M. Smith, D. V. T.: H. E. Hull, D. secretary; Charles Malmoe, D. treasurer; F. C. Ford, D.

The absence of Capt. Wvllvs Lyman, on duty at the Rebellion records oflice, aud First Lieut. George P. Borden, on recruiting service at Columbus barracks, Ohio, has imposed the command and care of Company I, Fifth infantry, upon Second Lieut. Charles G. Lyman. The recent transfer of First Lieut. James M. P. Partello to Company I (exchanging with Lieut. Borden, who goes to Com pany A) removes the care of the com pany from the shoulders of Lieut. Ly man. _ Lieut. J. C. F. Tillson, Fifth infantry, is relieved from court martial duty at Fort Keogh, Mont., and First Lieut. Samuel W. Miller, Fifth infantry, de tailed in his stead. A board of survey has been ordered to convene at Fort Keogh, to investigate the circumstances connected with the desertion from Company E, Fifth in fantry, of Privates George L. Short and John J. Tighe, and. from Company B, Fifth infantry, of Privates John Peter son and August G. Sandmann. On Friday last at Fort Shaw, Mont., Private Brown, Company X, Third in fantry, in arrest for a breach of disci pline, was being taken to the post guard house, when he broke away from the non-commissioned officer *in whose charge he was, and running to the river bank jumped into the stream be low, a distance of more than twenty feet. He was seen in the water, but whether he was drowned or succeeded in reaching the opposite bank of the river and deserted is not known. A detail sent out to search the stream and its banks has failed to obtain tidings of the soldier, and his disappearance re mains a mystery. Second Lieutenants W. H. Chatfield and Charles G. Lyman, Fifth infantry, Fort Keogh, Mont., are relieved from the respective duties of acting signal officer and topographical officer for that post, and their duties have been assigned to First Lieut. F. B. Jones, Twenty-second infantry. Lieut. Jones thus becomes the Pooh-Bah of Fort Keogh, the offices of quartermaster, commissary, ordnance officer, range officer, commandant of Indian scouts and post treasurer having heretofore been imposed upon him. The office of post hatter is probably also within range of his vision. . The proceedings of the general court martial in the case of First Lieut. George B. Backus, First cavalry, re cently tried at Fort Buford, Dak..' were yesterday promulgated by the command ing general of the department. Lieut. Backus was tried lor absence without leave. The findings of the court were - in accordance with the prisoner's plea of "guilty," and the sentence is that he be reduced in regimental rank two files, so that his name shall appear upon the army register next below that of First Lieut. John Pitcher, First cavalry. ! DISTRICT COURT DOINGS. Following is the call of jury cases to day: The St. Paul Sash and Door com pany vs. George A. Cartley et al.; John R. Osman vs. 11. P. Grant; Dorothea Sat her vs. Nels J. Ness; The St.Paul Collection Bureau vs. S. M. De Menial; Mary Ilobak vs. Matthew Leithauser; A. Gumming vs. Michael Kennedy etal. The case of A. H. Lohlker vs. George Nash is on trial before Judge Brill. Before Judge Wilkin the case of Mar tin Delaney vs. Joseph Brown, Sr., is on trial. Ed Maloy, who was Indicted with Ed Flanagan for grand larceny in the sec ond degree, came before "Judge Brill and pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to the work house for one year.

Grain Inspector Clausen—The crops are in as good condition as they ever were at this time of year, according to reports. The rain has not hurt them. People in the East seem to think there is going to be wheat enough to go around, for the market dropped a point and a half to-day. Five years ago a season like, the present one would liave sent wheat up 20 cents. Mayor Smith— l* don't believe there will be any appointments on the school board until after the Chicago conven tion. It's coining summer and there's little need of a school board. Aid. Conley— l shall stay in St. Paul and see who is elected president of the council, and then I'm going on a vaca tion of several months. Lew Scott— The licenses for circuses are too high in this city. (apt. Stees— l don't like to hear it called '"Decoration day." The proper name is Memorial day.

From First Page. be inferred that the members of our trade generally have fully awakened to the importance of this question, and are .prepared , for mutual sup port .in a struggle- which in volves much that good men prize far more, highly than wealth or affluence. There are some deplorable exceptions men, who, as has been shown by the in vestigation of the New York 'board of arbitration— are so completely deaf to the dictates of honor, honesty and man hood, that they do not hesitate to take advantage of their colleague's troubles; and even go so far as to supply money to labor agitators to the end that boy cotts, by which they hope to profit, may be made more effective. It affords your trustees great pleasure to be able to state that, besides the contempt of an entire community and of their own workmen, these men have gained noth ing by their despicable course.. | DISCUSSING PROHIBITION. ! : The Trustees Say That It Is an ! . Acknowledged Failure. ■j So long as prohibition served as a political side-issue in state campaigns, and bore a purely partisan character, its chances of success were not inconsider able ; but as an independent movement it is certainly doomed to failure,especially in view of the movements favoring high license and local option, and of tho- Republican anti-saloop agi tation. Besides these destructive factors, its own inherent perni ciousness is beginning to operate with telling effect upon the minds of the more intelligent of its advocates, and there are. even now, certain internal evidences that the indisputable numerical growth of the party in some states is more than counterbalanced by a pretty general in tellectual attenuation. Of two things absolutely certain.one is, that wherever, during the past two years, prohibition has been submitted to the people upon its merit pure and simple, unalloyed by considerations of a political or partisan character, it was overwhelmingly de feated; the other is that the authorities and leading men of the prohibitory states do not hesitate to acknowledge that prohibition is worse than a failure, because it creates evils far more de structive of the health, wealth and morals of the people than the ancient regime of 'tree whisky," which at least had the advantage of being free from the curse of surreptitiousness. A YEAR'S PRODUCT. Some Valuable Figures from the Trustees' Report. As a consequence of the conviction that the only safety lies in co-operation, a numerical increase of 33 per -cent in membership since 18S4 has been re corded. In the last-named year your association consisted of 510 members engaged in brewing (this figure, of course, excludes associate members); at present it consists of 093 members so engaged. The former number pro duced 11,978,120 of a total production of about 17.3-19, _ 50 barrels (.in 1883). as against 5,373,930 barrels pro duced by 1,682 brewers outside of the association. Taking the revenue sta tistics for the year 1887, we find that the proportion of beer produced by m ru bers of the association and that pro duced by non-members, the total num ber of brewers being about '2,240, is about as follows. Bbls Total production 22,400,335 Produced by members of tbe as sociation 18.375.537 Produced by brewers outside of the associotion 5,0.4,703 £ Of the total number of brewers en gaged in manufacturing throughout the country in the year named, about sixty are white beer brewers, while nt least 1,002 brewed less than 1,500 barrels an nually — that is to say, they, being brew ers and retailers at .the same time, brewed only a sufficient quantity of beer to supply their own customers at their bars. The proportion of malt liquors produced by members of the associa tion is, in round numbers, 80 per cent. DUTY OX KICK AND ARTICLES. '•' During the congressional debates on the proposed modification of the customs tariff, it transpired that there was a strong tendency to reduce the duty on rice, and your trustees believed that in the event of such a reduction— which, as a matter of general policy, they would neither have advocated nor opposed— it would be prudent to endeavor to have the duty on brewers' rice correspondingly reduced. This was done at the special request of the brewers of St. Louis,- as submitted by Ellis Wainright. Through the kind instrumentality of Hon. Ash bel P. Fitch, rice, isinglass and green and colored glass bottles were included in the list of articles, the duty on wliich it was then proposed to re duce. This report was signed by the entire board of trustees, comprising: William A. Miles, Henry Clausen, Jr., J. C. G. Ilupfel and George Ehret, of New York; 11. B.

Standard hall was the Mecca towards which the delegates turned their steps last evening on the occasion of an offi cial reception of members and quests and a concert by Seibert's orchestra. Upon entering the hall, it was found that the local committee, consisting of Messrs. William Hamni, Ernest Haltru sauer, Anthony Yoerg, Jr.. William Banholzer, Paul Hauser, Philip Sitt man and Chris Dormiden, had not been idle and besides festooning the walls with evergreens and decorations of the national colors, together with pictures of the leading brewing establish ments in the United States, they had provided an abund ance of small tables and chairs where their guests could make them selves comfortable during the ceremo nies. A host of diligent and attentive waiters, each armed with a box of cigars and a bottle of some famous brew of beer, were scattered through out the hall as ministers to the wants of the thirsty and tired delegates. All the delegates who were accompanied on the trip by their wives and daughters took them to Standard hall and the fair 'sex seemed to enjoy themselves equally as well as their lieges and in fact it was a general good time throughout. It was about 8:30 o'clock when Aid. Ham in rapped the assemblage to order and introduced Mayor Smith, who. he said, -would address a few words on behalf of St. Paul. ...?-*?_, )r ßrevity marked the speechmaking. Mayor Smith said that he was glad to welcome to St. Paul an association whose principal objects were to educate a health}- public sentiment as to unjust discriminations against their busi ness, and to cultivate social intercourse with their members. _ It was within his remembrance when there were few breweries west of the Alleghenies, and fully three-fourths of the people of that day had not even seen, much less taken beer. Now. how ever, beer was almost a national bever age and formed one of the greatest in dustries of the country, while the men who managed the breweries were of high character and intelligence. In conclusion he assured all present of a hearty welcome to St. Paul, and hoped that they would carry back to their homes only the pleasantest memories of their trip to the Saintly City. Presi dent W. A. Miles, of the Brewers' asso ciation, and who, by ; the way, is very suggestive of ex-Mayor Grace, of New York, in personal appearance, even to the gold- owed spectacles, made a fitting response to the kindly greeting ' of Mayor Smith, there was- a flourish of popular music from the orchestra and the reception was over, v ' . n EMIL I JEWELER, II I QT 85 E.
