SAINTLY CITY DOINGS, Mr. Hodgson, of the Farmers' Alliance, Explains Albert vr Scheffer's Position. The President of the Chamber of Commerce Announces the Committees. Twenty-five Hundred Not Ex cessive Damages for a . Breach of Promise. Summary of the Doings of a Day Gathered From All Sources. IT IS NO STRADDLE. Mr. Hodgson, of the Alliance, Ex plains Mr. Scheffer's Position on the Platform. *'Th« &LOBE is inclined to poke fun at our esn.idate for governor," re marked Thomas C. Hodgson, of the Farmers' Alliance, last evening; "and as the farmers of this state regard the Globe to be one of the fairest papers in the Northwest, I want to say a few words through you just to square Mr. Scheffer on the tariff questian. Mr. Scheffer has been misrepresented by the report of his speeches published in the Pioneer Press. He has not gone back on the al liance platform, lie stands to-day just where he stood the day he accepted our nomination. The alliance platform contains just one sentence relat ing to the tariff, and reads thus: 'We demand a radical re duction of the tariff.' That is Mr. Scheffer's position. It is not necessary for him to be a Democrat or even a Cleveland man to do that. The truth is instead of the alliance indorsing Cleveland's tariff policy it is Cleveland indorsing the alliance tariff policy. Four years ago the alliance adopted a platform embodying the ideas which Mr. Cleveland so forcibly presented in his last initial message. 1 am a Republican and a low tariff man, and I toll you we intend to have Albert Scheffer nominated by the Republican convention or make the biggest fight that has ever been known in this state. The people are back of this movement, and they are not going to be tricked this time by the machine bosses. Otter Tail, and the whole Fifth district, for that matter, is practically solid for Scheffer and tariff reform." COMMITTEES NAMED. These Will Look Alter Chamber of Commerce Matters for a Year.

Ihe Award of $2,500 Damages to Olive Sanson Is Affirmed. The supreme court yesterday affirmed the decision of the lower court in the Elton-Hanson breach of promise suit, which was appealed from Fillmore county. The piaintiff in the case was awarded c":_.s*)o damages. She is a cousin of the defendant and a native of Norway. Elton is a well-to-do farmer, and several years ago sent for the young woman to come to America. She came and was employed as a servant in his house. An illicit intimacy resulted in the birth of two children, which he sought to disclaim. The syllabus in the case is signed by Judge Gilfillan, who holds the damages awarded not excess ive. Other cases were decided as follows:' BLf-JB THE SYI.T_A.HI. Frank Undbejem, appellant, vs. William H. Hastings, respondent. Syllabus—ln an action for an injury caused by defendant's negligently driv ing his buggy against plaintiff in a •public street, it not appearing that the street was much thronged with vehicles, held that it was not negligence per se in plaintiff to go along in the street— for a lawful purpose— looking be hind him to see if vehicles might be ap proaching from that direction. Order reversed. Gii.kili.ax, J. Allen W. Clark, respondent, vs. The City of Austin, appellant. .... '-.•.. Application of the rule that Where allegations were by consent manifestly litigated at the trial as though., they were put in issue by the written pleadings and will be treated on appeal to this court as though thus put in issue. Evidence held sufficient to sustain the verdict. Held that where notice of a claim for injuries sustained from defects in a street has been served on the mayor or recorder as re quired by section IS, chapter 7, of the city of Austin, the claim need not be .presented to the common council under section 14, chapter 11. The charter of Austin provides that no action shall be maintained against the city for damages caused by any obstruction or excavation in any street, placed there by any per son or by his negligence in the manage ment thereof or his failure to maintain guards or lights thereat, unless on such judgment against the defendants exe cution shall first issue against such per son, and if the city pay the judgment it shall be the owner of and may enforce it against the other defendant. Held in such action the verdict may, if the sentence justify it, be against both de fendants, or against one and in favor of the other, and also in case the verdict is against the city and . in favor of the co defendant the city cannot move for a new trial on the ground that the verdict ought to have "been against the co defendant also, unless it make the co-_ defendant a party to the motion. Order affirmed. Gilfillan, J.p J. T. Blake, respondent, " vs. Bert * Lee and Harry W ads worth, appellants. Syllabus— To bring before this court on an appeal the contents of the docu ment received or offered and rejected on the trial of the cause in the court be low, copies thereof must be inserted in or attached to the case settled by the trial judge. It is not enough that the settled case shows documents to have been received or offered and rejected, and that the clerk sends here as part of his return copies which he certifies to be copies of those so received or - offered and rejected. Order affirmed. Gilfillan, J. Theodore W. Burdick, appellant, vs. David Bingham, respondent. Syllabus— tax judgment sale, under chapter 135, General Laws 1881, was ad vertised for Sept. 96. On that day the auditor offered all the lands covered by the judgmentjbut did not sell the land in question. Nothing further was done that day, the sale was notadjourned.On Oct. 4, at the auditor's office, a person offered the auditor a certain sum for the land in question and the offer was accepted, and the auditor issued a certificate of sale. Held that the issue was without authority and void, and also that the nine months given by the act for com mencing an action or interposing a de fense alleging the invalidity. of the sale commences only from the time of an at tempt to make such a case as the act au thorized, and sale in question was not such an attempt and the time did not begin to run. No rights occurred to the purchaser from such a sale. The lien for taxes did not pass, and the court could not require payment of them as a convention of adjudging the sale void. Judgment affirmed. Gilfillan, J. C. Ole Olson, appellant, vs. The St. Paul, Minneapolis & . Manitoba Railway Company, respondent. Syllabus— Certain propositions dis cussed and determined in Jones vs.Skill man. Twenty-ninth Minn., 95, applied to the facts as found by the court in this case. The finding of fact considered and held sufficient to warrant the con clusion of law. Judgment affirmed. Collins, J. Benedict Schmidt, respondent, vs. The Minneapolis, Lyndale & Minnetonka Railway Company, appellant.

FREE KINDERGARTENS. What the Association Is Doing in St. Paul. The free kindergarten system is a comparatively new institution in this city, taken as it stands to-day. The credit of introducing it here belongs to Rev. E. C. Mitchell, pastor of the Swedenborgian church, and to Miss Grace Johnson, the untiring, talented teacher, who for some time practically had the responsibility of its success or failure upon her shoulders. In June, 1887, according to the report of the secretary, Mrs. Ludden, friends of the kindergarten met at the rooms of the Relief society, sixteen being present, and organized the St. Paul Free Kinder garten association, making the institu tion what its name implies— a free pub lic benefit. The society needed funds, and a pal lor concert Was riven at Mrs. William Constant* home. Enough was netted to liquidate the small liabilities contracted, and in September of last year the Ninth Street Kindergarten, in the Relief so ciety building, opened under Miss Davy's direction. A generous donation of $150 was received, and then the Ladies' Aid Societs of Dayton's Bluff assumed all the outlay of the institution except what the $150 referred to would cover. This resulted in the opening last January of the Dayton's Bluff Kin dergarten, under the care of Miss Ada Williams. Mrs. Dr. Haupt was very much inter ested in the success of the free kinder garten here.and for a longtime she con tributed great assistance. In February some necessary funds were - acquired through an entertainment given by ex members of the Yale College Glee club, and so far Sirs. Carl Ludwig, the solici tor of the association, has secured $1,000 by her energetic spi.xit. The as sociation desires to thank the public for the generous way in which it has re ceived Mrs, Ludwig. SEpBI The association now has two more rooms other than those already men tioned, one at the West St. Bethel, and the other in the. chapel of the Ninth Presbyterian church, and a committee is now looking up what can be done for Swede hollow. Up to date 11*0 children are enrolled, under the careful training of Misses Williamson, Davy, Jessie Tib betts and Lizzie Winterbottom, who have volunteered their services as teach ers. :; - : - ;;:'■'' : The association met yesterday after noon at Relief hall to hold its second annual meetine. Rev. E. C. Mitchell was re-elected president, and Rev. Richard Hall vice president. The new officers are: Mrs. Charles Allen, vice president; Mrs. J. 1). Esterbrook, secre tary; Miss Rosina Ludden, treasurer, and Mrs. Carl Ludwig, solicitor. The new board of managers not being filled, the association decided to postpone fur ther action upon it until next Monday at '6 p. in. at an adjourned meeting. The St. Paul Board of Trade. The St. Paul board of trade held, its annual meeting yesterday , forenoon at 11 o'clock, in the chamber of j commerce building. The president, J. M. Bohrer, delivered a few remarks in which .he gave an outline of the "business of the year, which has been quite satisfactory. W. G. Gates, the secretary, read his an nual report, which shows a fair increase in the business of the year over that of last season.

Senator Durant, of Stillwater, was in the city yesterday, and when the subject was broached to him he assured the members of the committee on ar- , rangements that they could count upon him to give the matter a boom, and he was sure that a number of his Democratic constituents would be only too glad to help fill the column. The list of speakers will comprise the representative men of Minnesota. A meeting of the Ramsey county club will be held this evening at the municipal court room, when the preliminary steps will be taken for arranging a definite programme. THE Y. M. C. A. RECEPTION.

Positive orders have been issued to : the conductors and gripmen on the cable cars that smooking must not be permitted on the platform of the covered cars, and considerable friction has been caused thereby with the passengers. Those who wish to enjoy their cigars have been told that the grip car was for their convenience and accommoda- . tion but persistency seems to be their; jewel, and no coaxing has thus far been able to induce them to desist. "Not less than 500 complaints against the practice of smoking on these plat forms are filed in the office," said Man ager P. F. Barr, "and in most instances the writers are ladies who have suffered considerable annoyance from the puffer of the weed." . . "Instructions were given that while politeness was expected on the part of the employes of the cable line, never theless they should insist firmly that the rights of lady passengers should be respected in this matter. ■;.; "But it seems useless to reason with some people, and those who have been requested not to smoke on the platforms, and in many cases they have been repre sentative business men going to their homes or coming down town to their counting rooms, have resented this in terference as an invasion of their rights and kept on smoking."

' It was a decided revelation to those who; expected only to see old Turner hall re modeled. The scenery, decorations, dra- 1 peries, and all, were' artistic and very rich in color, while the arrange ment ot boxes, seats, etc., caused many to term it a[j second Madison Square. Each side of the stage contained plants and pot flowers in abun dance. The boxes were filled with fashionably dressed ladies and gentlemen, and the entire audience was all that could have been desired, representative of the leading society and best citizens of St. Paul. Even the opening overture by the orchestra was loudly applauded, and then all eyes were turned to the familiar FIGURE OK MAYOR SMITH, who dedicated the new theater in a brief speech. lie thanked the management for presenting St. Paul with such a lovely temple of dramatic art, and styled it the handsomest west of Chicago. * lie thought it the duty of the people to uphold the new house with their lavish patronage, for Messrs. Walker and Wilson had filled a long felt want. He .then described how easy it was to empty _ the theater in two min utes, where it was lire-proof and how pleased he was to attend the opening performance. The play was very strong throughout. It contains a most vigorous plot, filled with powerful situations and good com edy. The audience was not slow to recognize the merit and applaud the efforts of the perfectly-balanced com pany introduced to them, and in fact gave them a stormy oration, showering flowers upon them in abundance. The play was "Forsake Me Not." " THK COMPANY. Miss Linda Dietz, as Margaret, be- , trayed much power as an emotional act ress. Her conception of the part is perfect and conscientious, and she received the recognition mer ited, an ovation. A. S. Lip man, who plays the chaplain, does it artistically and forcibly. He is quite handsome, graceful, manly and an actor of much , ability. He has a rich, pleasing voice, and also enjoyed an ovation. Harold Bus sell could not be improved upon. He, too, is handsome, and has a graceful stage presence. He is very good. Charles Coote, as Capt. Henry, the major's chum, did most excellent work. He came for his share of recognition, and what is more, deserved it. Miss Ada Deaves played Sallle Chipp in a charming manner. She Is decidedly clever and played in an orig inal, frank manner that lost Miss Deaves and delighted the audience with Sallio. The work of Mr. Caliee as Chat teris! was excellent. It is a hard character to play, but Mr. Caliee mas ters it easily. Mrs. Mary Myers is one of those finished actresses of the old school that create a fine im pression in whatever character she appears, and as Mrs. Brennan, the villainous matron, she . is perfect. It would be a pleasure to see her, how ever, in a character more suited to her pleasing face and silvery hair. Miss Leisette Le Baron is clever,as are all the rest. : Messrs.: Walker, and Wilson may well. :. congratulate themselves on. the.. theater,, the play and the people who present it. : • "-?•'.•*"< The boxes were occupied by George Hayes and lady and W.

Some time ago a story was printed to the effect that Walter and John Doherty cruelly beat Mrs. John Gilliard, of 46 Forbes street, seriously injuring her. She was about to give birth to a child, and it was claimed that the kicking she received would result in premature birth, and perhaps fatally. The case was called several times and postponed each time. It was called again yester day and dismissed.
