But the Indications Are That
Schoenert Killed Himself.
The mystery which surrounded the
shooting of Charles 1 . Schoenert, in the
rear ot his residence at 1:317 Washington
avenue north, Monday night, was, in a
measure cleared away yesterday morn
ing, when the revolver with which the
shooting was done was found by Sergt.
Norman and N. I". Beden in the water
closet. This revolver was a "small, cheap
affair, and contained four loaded shells
and one empty one. The weapon was
evidently a new one, and had never
In en fired before. The weapon had
never been seen inSchoenert's bands by
any member of his family, and the in
ference is that he must have purchased
it while coming home from the cigar
manufactory, where lie was employed.
A post mortem examination was held at
Connolly's morgue at noon. The exam
ination "showed that the bullet ha I
passed through the right temple, taking
a course slighly upward through the
brain and lodging about an inch above
the left eye. The course of the bullet
indicated that the revolver was held in
Schoenert's hands. The bullet was
shattered into fragments and pretty well
scattered through the brain. The ex
amining physicians pronounced the
wound of such a nature as not to cause,
immediate death under ordinary
circumstances, Their theory is that
the revolver, in falling from the man's
hands, dropped into the vault, and that
the man staggard to the door of the
closet, where Be fell and died.
The inquest was held at 4 o'clock,
Deputy Coroner Towers in charge.
Mis. Schoenert and her daughter were
present part of the time, and were al
most hysterical in their grief. Mrs.
Schoenert was the first witness. She
said she had been married twenty-four
years and had always lived happily
with her husband. She knew of no
reason why he should have taken his
own life. When Schoenert came
home to supper Monday evening she
was out visiting, and did not see him
until late in the evening. He was
pleasant then. She gave a graphic de
scription of finding his dead body out
in the back yard, and was quite "over
come while telling the sad story. Miss
Sophie Schoenert, the dead man's
daughter, said her father did not act
any different from usual when he came
home to supper, She never knew of
his carrying a revolver. M. A. Bemis
told of his hearing Mrs. Schoenert
scream and of going out with a lantern
and finding the body. He had looked
for a revolver, but could find noth
ing, lie had lowered the lantern
into the closet, lie said, but could find no
weapon there. N. U. Beden and Sergt.
John Norman were the other witnesses,
besides the surgeons who held the
autopsy. They told of finding the re
volver in the closet yesterday morning.
The jury returned a verdict that the de
ceased came to Ids death from a pistol
bullet wound, the weapon being held in
the hand of some one to the jury un
The case attracted considerable at
tention among the police, as there are
several peculiar circumstances con
nected with it. A lettel was received
recently from Isaac Hart & Son, from
the Manhattan Commercial agency, of
"New York, making inquiries as to
Schoenert's financial standing. Schoe
nern carried several thousand dollars
insurance on his life, and was doing
well financially. He owns some prop
erty here, and has been earning from
?2u to Sou a week.
James Rickey, Wall Paper Dealer,
Goes to the Wall.
James Rickey, the Nicollet avenue
Wall paper dealer, made an assignment
yesterday to William 11. Donaldson. The
direct cause of the assignment was a
suit begun by the Ohio Coal company,
who garnished the firm of Waters &
Armstrong. James Rickey came to this
city from Dayton, ()., about four years
ago and bought an interest in the "busi
ness of the well known firm of Middle
mist & Taylor. At that time the firm
wished to increase its retail business,
and to also do something in the whole
sale business, and each member of the
firm put 50,500 into the business.
They took the double store at 412 and
414 Nicollet avenue and continued the
wholesale business for one year, but,
finding that it did not pay, dropped that
department. At the end ot the second
year, the partnership was dissolved and
Miridlemist & Taylor took a store
further down thd- street, while Rickey
continued business at the old stand.
When Mr. Rickey came here he con
sidered himself worth £50.000, but, ac
cording to his sworn statement, his
liabilities will foot up about £40,000 and
his assets will not amount to more than
The Oberlin Reunion Welcome
to Dr. Chase— Social Sauce.
The fourth annual alumni and ban
quet and reunion of the graduates of
Oberlin college was held last evening at
the Hotel Ardamore. The number of
guests present was comparatively small,
considering the large number of invita
tions sent out to members and friends
of the alumni, and the result was
that a large number of regrets
were received. Nevertheless, there
was a goodly number present who made
the best of the grand opportunity of
fered them to enjoy a delightful even
ing. The guests began to assemble at
6:30 and from that time until 8:30 an in
formal reception was held in the par
lors on the second tloor. The reception
was very pleasantly passed in talking
over the good old times of college days,
after which the guests repaired to the
banquet hall where an elaborate
spread was heartily partaken. At the
conclusion of the report short addresses
were made by Hon. 11. G. Hicks, Rev.

Bennet Seminary Turns Out Its
"Sweet Girl Graduates."
Spacious Westminster church . last
evening was filled almost to overflow
ing upon the occasion of the eighteenth
annual commencement of Bennet semi
nary. While the exercises were of the
conventional, not to say stereotyped,
commencement order, the interest that
always centers upon the graduation
of a class of young ladies from the
duties of school life, and the added
charm of personal acquaintance and
friendship made the audience a very at
tentive and sympathetic one, as was
shown by. the warm applause and the
profusion of floral gifts with which the
lair graduates were greeted. This idea
was happily suggested by the saluta
torium. who somewhat naively remarked
that the bud is cherished more than the
blossom, and the dawn is more admired
than daylight. Upon the rostrum sat
Capt. J. C. Whitney, president of the
board of trustees; Miss Kenyon. the
principal; Miss Stevens, the 'assistant
principal, and Rev. D. J. Burrell. The
exercises began at 8 o'clock, when, to
the music of a grand march, the
class of ten young ladies, each
clad in simple white with flowers
at the breast appeared and took their
seats. The rather lengthy programme
was as follows:

Stella Lucille Gilman, the valedicto

examples illustrated how the lives that
have been lived centuries ago will bear
an influence upon lives yet to come.
Upon this vital importance of human
influence for good or evil she made a
fervent appeal for honesty of heart,
a purpose true and stability of patience.
Her farewell to the principal and '
instructors of the school and address to

A Jury Will Decide Whether or
Not Elijah Moden Carries a
Elijah Moden, a gentleman of color,
was arraigned in the municipal court
yesterday afternoon on a . charge of
striking at a young man named Han
cock, a white man, with a razor.
Moden was indignant at the charge.
"Why," said he, when placed on the
stand. "I nevah carry a razah, sah, and
even if I had,l would not use it on a man
like that, sah. I had a steel comb in
my hand, and when dis yer man
came up too ueah, and began for to
make trouble, 1 told him to go 'wall, and
1 made a strike at him with the comb.
He turned and went so fast that a boss
could not have cotched him. Why, sah,
he went right off de face of de yearth."
Several witnesses were called and testi
fied that Hancock had been abusing
Modems boy, and that Moden had
merely told him to go away and not be
bothering the boy. Moden was held to

The Grime Radical Valve Gear
Does Great Execution.
A number of prominent railroad men
availed themselves of the opportunity
to witness a test of the Grime radical
valve gear yesterday afternoon. The
engine, equipped with the gear and
a coach containing the party, left
the Minneapolis «fe St. Louis de
pot in Minneapolis at a p. m.
for St. Paul, where several more officials
boarded the car which pulled out to
Mississippi street. Here the train of
twenty-nine cars loaded with stone and
coal was coupled to the coach taking
the place of a way car. At Mississippi
street the test commenced. The engine
hauled the heavy train up the steep
grade and around the curve over
the Northern Pacific track to the
Como shops without a slip or a stop.
The merit of this gear will be better un
derstood when it is known that an ordi
nary engine is unable to haul over twenty
similarly loaded cars over the same
piece of track, while it is estimated by.
thoroughly posted railroad men that an
engine of this type, fitted with
the link motion could not haul to exceed
twenty-five loaded cars. This shows for
the Grime gear an increased power
equal to one-fifth. A starting test was
also made with twenty loaded cars. The
train was started from a dead
stop, and when the last car
passed the starting point had
developed a speed of over
twenty miles an hour: the end of the
last car passed the starting point forty
seconds after the signal to start was
given. All present were thoroughly
well pleased, and every one, including
the owners of the gear, were surprised
at the performance. Among those
present were: W. T. Small superin
tendent of motive power of the
Northern Pacific; J. O. Pattee, su
perintendent of the mechanical
department of the Manitoba: C. Fel
lows, of Cleveland, 0., formerly master
mechanic of the St. Louis & Texas; H.
A. Towne. V. L. Rice, James F. Will
iamson. D. T. Thompson and Trainmas
ter W. E. Johnson, of the Minneapolis
& St. Louis.
Conductor Abbott, of the Minneapolis
& St. Louis, as in charge of the
train: the tests were made under
the direction of the patentees, E. J.
Wolf and John Grime. The tests are
to be repeated to-morrow with two or
three additional cars. The engine will
be at the Minneapolis & St. Louis
depot in Minneapolis, until 2 p. m.,
when it will be taken to St. Paul, and
will leave the Northern Pacific yards at
3 :30 to begin the tests.

The Committee of Striking Girls
Makes a Fair Statement. :\; : -
Carrie Farden, one of the striking
girls formerly employed by Shotwell,
Clerihew & Lothman, has written a com
munication which charges the commit
tee with discrimination in the distribu
tion of money contributed to their re-' ■
lief, and concludes by demanding an*
accounting. Alice Rooney, chairman
of the committee, was seen by a Globe 1
reporter yesterday, and said she would -
prepare a statement in reply. The fol
lowing is the document, and it seems to
be perfectly fair and candid : ''
In reply to the charges of unfair dis
tribution of the fund to aid the "strik
ing girls" lately employed by Shotwell.
Clerihew & Lothman, committed to our
charge by the various labor organiza
tions and other generous people of the 5
city, as made by Carrie Farden in her
communication, we beg to state for the
information of all concerned that they
are not true. The accusation implies
favoritism and unjust discrimination.
The facts are, we have paid out $771,
in sums varying from $1.50 to $20, to 125
girls, the names of whom we would
willingly publish were it not that many
of them feel delicate about apuearing in
the public press as recipients of aid.
As regards "the satisfactory account
ing" called for, we are prepared to make
the same to a committee designated by
the donors of the fund or the reporters
of the daily press at any time required.
Among so many applications it may be
readily perceived how difficult it was
for us to render such aid as would be
satisfactory to all, and possibly instan
ces have occurred where some received
more than their circumstances entitled
them to, and others less. If such has
been the case it was an error of judg
ment, and not done with the intention
of discrimination against any, as
charged. Some girls were unable to
pay their board while at work for the
firm. We could not spare any money
for paying these board bills, as it was
all required to support the most needy
during the strike. Alice Rooxey,

No Startling Developments in the

blacksmiths, presented a bill of $122.62

for work performed by them when a
similar test was made last year, and
asked the committee to refuse the re
quest until it had been paid. The privi

police commission, and the bill of
Hunter, Scott & Co., to which $500 for
"extras" had been added over and above
the contract price for plumbing at the
central station, will be referred to the
council. Aid. Downs got in a little kick,
against a bill ot Dr. E. T. Gibson for 1
services at the city hospital, authorized
by the board of health, and the matter
will go before the council.
Timothy Moriarity, of St. Paul,
Jumps From a Milwaukee Train.
Timothy Moriarity, a resident of St. ,'
Paul, came near losing his life on the
Milwaukee road near the short line
bridge yesterday noon. He had come !
up from St. Paul to go to work on the
Lake street bridge. Just as the train !;
crossed the short line bridge and had '
attained a rapid speed, he walked out ;
on the platform and jumped off, think- ,'
ing no doubt that he could save time by
getting off there instead of riding way 1
into the depot. When picked up he
was unconscious. There was a big cut
in his forehead, one across his nose, a
piece of his upper lip was cut out aud
part of his tongue was gone. The
injured man was taken to Dr. Ames'
office, where his wounds were dressed.
He was then sent to his home at 77
Fourth street, in East St. Paul. His
wounds are dangerous but not necessa
rily fatal.
An amusing event occurred at the
court house, Monday. Clerk Daven
port is restless under the repeated
statements that his office is so very lu
crative, and yesterday took occasion to
remar.v that the newspapers were fool
ish in continually harping about it.
He said little to the morning paper re
porters, but calling upon the attache
of an evening paper gave him
a statement, showing how exaggerated
were these reports, and requested
its publication. The reporter turned in
the matter and the managing editor
ejaculated: "Holy Moses! We can't
print this rot. AY by, it is dead against
our cartoon." The matter was waste
basketed, and when the paper appeared
it contained a cartoon, showing a rush
of candidates for Ed Davenport's $20,000
office. The morning papers must make
the statement, after all.

Ninth Ward Democrats.
The chances are that the Ninth ward
will not have so many Republican votes
at the next election. Residents of the
ward are becoming tired of the way the
Republicans have engineered certain
-. .-..-- . -. ■-■-' •-•.-._ - - ■
matters, and at a well-attended meeting
held at Higgins' hail, 619 Munroe street,
last evening, the Ninth Ward Demo
cratic club was organized, with J. F.
Crimmins ps temporary : chairman and
William Finn as temporary secretary.
At the next meeting, to be called by the
chairman, permanent officers will be
elected and a constitution and by-laws
adopted. This is the first Democratic
club ever organized in the Ninth ward,
and, in fact, in that part of the city.

A three year-old girl was picked up on the
street by the police yesterday afternoon and
taken to the central station to be cared for
until the parents should call for her. The
little one kept insisting that her mother and
not she was lost. She was good nature itself,
and watched everything that took place at
the station with the greatest interest. In an
swer to all inquiries as to where she lived she
would reply: "I dousn't know, but I know
that my mamma will find herself pretty soon
and take me home." The mother "'found
herself" about S:3O in the evening and took
the little one home.

The Striking Girls.
' The public sympathy with the sewing
girls who struck for higher wages shows
how keenly people feel for girls who
are thrown out of work on which they
depend for a livelihood. If the pa
rents of these girls had endowed them

tion of Minneapolis they would not now
be dependent on their own labor for
