R ' W. Bell— "been
out to Helena; Butte City,
Spokane Falls, Tacoma,
Seattle, Victoria and Port
land, but St. Paul is good
enough for me.
Sergeant "Sneider— It
fanny, but some people
think that as soon as a
man puts on soldiers
clothes he's a great big

six of such people to-day.
Charles Beach— Fishing?
Why, 1 had more fun and
caught more fish Sunday than any man
who has gone out from St. Paul this
year. lt
Officer Sexton— l have to keep these
sports moving or else ." I couldn t get
along my beat. , ' _ ,
H. li. Browning— That is the first
Northern Pacific express robbery that
has ever occurred. 1 suppose because
it has been known that, we used sates
that thieves could not open.
Insurance Commissioner Shandrew—
I looked into the political swim a little
last Saturday while at Chtcago, and it
appeared to me as if the undercurrent
there was all for Blame, though there
is a friendly feeling toward Alger.
Frank Kellogg— l am going down to
Chicago to-morrow night. 1 think the
way it looks now Depew will get there.
1 can get a seat on the platform, al
though I don't care very much about,
national conventions.
August Aamold— l would not accept
.2,000 for mv Joseph Guamerius violin.
It is over two hundred years old. The
varnish seems to have penetrated
through the wood. By the way, the
varnish of an instrument controls the
tone, and then the sound post regulates
the tone. * , „
Judge Cory— Do 1 like a base ball
game better than a circus? Yes, 1 do;
most emphatically.
Contractor William Johnson— soon
as the brick begins to come into the
city, times will be good. There will
be 'some wonderful building movements
this year.
George Svmonds— The Grand opera
house will open Augs2o. We are going
to make numerous improvements.
Aid. Conley— have let Ed Hilton go
and put Billy Wells in as manager. If
1 can get what I want 1 will build a fine
theater on Seventh street.
Karl Simmon— The people are now all
beginning to walk upon the south side
of Seventh street.
Dr. Quinn— lf I had §200.000 I would
have my practice so that 1 could devote
about three hours a day to my office and
spend the rest of the time either hunt
ing or fishing. 1 advise recreation as
much as medicine' and I do not think it
aloes any harm to set an example which
sickly people may follow with benefit.
D. 11. Dorset*, "of Chicago— l left Chi
cago on Saturday. 1 never saw such a
crowd on the eve of any national con

at sea as to who was likely to be the
coming candidate.
P. C. -lunger— makes no difference
to me how hot it is. I'm bound to see the
circus parade. It isn't every day that
you can see ga man sit on a lion's
back and toy with his mane. 1 don't
know of more than half a dozen men in
St. Paul who would venture to do that.
S. S. Eaton— That tall lady wdo rode
as the queen on the roof of the tallest
vehicle in the circus procession yester
day was a very beautiful damsel. She
was a little sunburnt, but that only
added to her Oriental beauty.
Dr. Day— The effort to have the school
year terminate on the Ist of June is a
good move and ought to succeed.
W. P. Murray— l think that before the
chamber of commerce gives any advice
to the council in regard to the construc
tion of elevated railroads in St. Paul
they should study up the matter, and
ascertain what effect such a road would
have upon the private property abutting
on the street.
J. P. Moore— considering the ele
vated railway matter we must look at it
a little differently than we would if we
had a city here like New York. What
we want here is more houses.niore busi

we must have. The elevated railroad
will help to bring them.
(banning Seabury— of the West
don't want any more of the interstate
commerce law than we are compelled to
take, and the less of that the better.
D. R. Noyes— There is no question
about it. Some of the objectionable
provisions of the interstate commerce
law will undoubtedly beamodilied, or
perhaps repealed, but the fundamental
idea that the legislature of the govern
ment has power and authority over the
railroads will remain.

Dr. Rudolph Schiffman tells a good

way he would be most likely to return,

Short End of an Indian Raid
Which Will Have Due
Effect. -J
It Was Sioux and Not Pie
gans That Despoiled
Plenty Coos.
The Wisdom of Appointing-
Indian Scouts Appreciated
by Gen. Vincent.
Dispatches were received yesterday
by Gen. Ruger from Col. Dudley, tne
commanding officer at Fort Custer, stat
ing that the raiding Indians who robbed
Plenty Coos' band of Crows of forty
head of stock had been overtaken by a
detachment, of Indian scouts and two of
the marauders were killed. It was as
certained also that the raiders were not,
as had been supposed, members of the
Piegan tribe, but Sioux from the Fort
Peck reservation, who had been missing
from that place for several weeks.
As soon as the robbery was discov
ered the interpreter at Fort Custer
was sent out with a detachment
of Indian scouts comprising Crows who
had not participated in the troubles on
the reservation last fall. They were
anxious to overtake their despoilers.and
within .twenty-four' hours they were
successful and a sharp fight was at once
It was short, but decisive, the Crows
killing two of the Sioux without having
any of their party injured, and nearly
all the
Previous to the fight all the country
through which the raiders would be
likely to pass had been notified, and a
sharp lookout was maintained for them.
The Crows had their hearts in the
work and seemed pleased at the
prospect of going in pursuit of their old
enemies, who had frequently committed
similar depredations on their stock, but
had managed to get off safely with their
plunder. The result of the Crows
campaign would, it was thought, have
a salutary effect upon other Indians,
who might be disposed to start off from
their reservations on forays of this
kind, and especially as those killed fell
into the hands of their pursuers.
The wisdom of appointing Indian
scouts to look after the interests of their
tribes, said Adjt. Gen. Vincent, was
never better demonstrated than in this
case. After the difficulty among the
("rows last fall it was determined to se
lect some of the most reliable and trusty
of the tribe, and as a reward for their
fidelity make them special policemen.:
And then, too, they were personally in
terested in this matter, for some of the
pursuers had suffered at the hands of
the raiders and they were put on their
mettle in consequence.
As Col. Dudley says, it was a severe
lesson, but will prove a beneficial one,
lor when the Indians learn that their
if they offend against the law, instead
of the soldiers, they will be more cau
tious about trespassing and stealing as
these Sioux warrioiw did. It has been
known for some time that there were
several roving bands of Indians absent
from the reservations, and among them
were some pretty hard cases. Whether
or not the Sioux killed were embraced
in this category will not be known until
the details of the latest encounter are
received at the headquarters of the de
partment of Dakota.
In Favor of Rapid Transit and
Opposed to the Interstate Com
merce Bill.
H. F. Stevens, from the special com
mittee on depot sheds, reported at the
chamber of commerce meeting yester
day that the committee had not been
able to see the representatives of the
different railroad companies constitut
ing the Union Depot company, and
asked for further time. A request was
made that the secretary of the chamber
should write to the. managers of the
Milwaukee & St. Paul', St. Paul & Du
luth, the Manitoba and the Omaha
roads, asking them if their roads were
prepared to erect suitable sheds at the
union depot, and if not, what it was
that prevented them. The report was
adopted aim further time granted.
The committee on health and sanita
tion reported in favor of closing the
annual sessions of the public schools
the Ist of June in each year.
The committee on rapid transit and
elevated railways reported in favor of
granting franchises under proper re
strictions. Mr. Murray offered an
amendment that the city be paid a cer
tain percentage of the gross earnings of
the company as compensation for the
use of the public streets. J. P. Moore
argued that it would be better to limit
the time when the percentage should be
paid to a certain period.
The amendment was adopted without
fixing any limit, and then the report as
amended was adopted. The committee
on Senator Cullom's bill to amend the
interstate commerce law reported
against the bill and in favor of repeal
ing the interstate commerce law, ex
cept possibly a few general provisions.
They also recommended that the Min
nesota delegation in congress be re
quested to do all they could to defeat
the bill named and any other that might
be offered, the provisions of which
would tend to hamper any further the
railroads in tbe United States in the
transaction of their business. The re
port was adopted. A resolution offered
by 11. P. Stevens, in favor of consoli
dating the city aud county, was referred
to the committee on legislation and the
committee on taxes to investigate and
repot t. ****Bg__
A communication was read from
State Geologist Winchell embodying
the results of an examination made of
the natural gas wells at Freeborn. He
stated that he was satisfied both from
facts learned and an analysis made by
Prof. Dodge that it was natural rock
gas. The imperfect developments pros
ecuted have been ample to show the
probability of a great gas reservoir that
can be reached by a deep drill. In view
of the importance of the investigation !
to the state at large the geologist stated
that he would take pleasure in allowing
the use of the deep well machinery for
making su«h a test and would allow
such aid as consistent to have the ex
ploration made thorough and complete.

What Gov. McGill Suggests To
wards Their Extermination.
Gov. McGill is daily receiving in
quiries regarding the recent appearance
of locusts in this state. When inter- •
viewed by a Globe reporter yesterday
he made a statement of the situation
from . facts furnished by Prof. Luger, "
state entomologist, who was sent to in- !•
vestigate the matter.
"The tract of country infested," said
the governor, "covers about three
townships in the northwestern part of
Otter Tail county. Some three or four
years ago they appeared in this section,
and have bred there from season to
season until this year they are appear
ing in alarming numbers. Prof. Luger
pronounces them the true Rocky Moun
tain locusts.
The people at first kept quiet about
the matter, fearing that the knowledge
of the facts might injure them, and
hoping that
I fear that we are in for a serious
time with the pests, Measures'have been
taken toward suppression and exter
mination of the locusts and to prevent
their spread. 1 have this morning heard
of their appearance at Battle Lake in
the same county.
"The people of Perliam made a requi- .
sition on me for money to enable them :
to pay a bounty for tbe extermination
of the locusts, but unfortunately there
is not a dollar at my command to apply
for this purpose. Specific appropria
tions must be made by the state. 1 be
lieve, however, in hiring men to destroy
the pests. This can be done now be
fore the locusts have produced wings,
when they will spread very rapidly.
The Otter Tail county commissioners
could take" measures in this direction,
and should do so at once. I would sug
gest that the commissioners appropriate
at least 98,000 for the purpose, and 1 do
not hesitate to say that the state will ■
reimburse the commissioners for the
full amount when the legislature meets
next winter. The people of this state
who have, moved in recently hardly .
seem to appreciate the lull meaning of
a visitation of locusts, but I believe it is
one of the worst evils that could befall

Syllabus— Plaintiff at M, desiring to* :

regular passenger trains about to start
for the latter place. Before he learned
he could get no seat train was going
at a high rate of - speed. He asked the
conductor to provide him a seat, but the
conductor refused. On his fare being:
demanded the plaintiff offered to pay it
if a seat was provided him, but refhsed*.
to pay it unless a seat was provided.'-
Held, that the plaintiff had a right so
to refuse to pay the fare, and that he
did not thereby become a trespasser on
the train, for a passenger has a right to
a seat. Also that a railroad having the
right to eject from its train one not a
trespasser must do so at a regular
station. Wyman vs. Northern Pacific

effect that a company may charge more

it charges for the tickets purchased be
fore entering the train, followed. The
condition attached to such right to dis
criminate, that the company shall give
to persons desiring to travel on one of.
its trains a reasonable opportunity to
purchase tickets, does . not require it to
keep its ticket oflice onen within such
time before the departure of the train
that a person cannot procure a ticket
and get upon a train before it begins to

verdict. Order reversed.

Syllabus— ln condemnation proceed
ings for taking for a railroad a strip
through a farm, it is proper to ask the
witness what is the difference between
the value of the farm without the rail
road across' it and its value with the
railroad across it. When the company's
witnesses had stated their opinion of
such difference, in values it was proper,
on cross-examination in order to test the
value of their opinions, to ask them if
in their judgment it would make any
difference that the owner had no right
to cross the right of way taken. Certain
crossings made. by the company at the
owner's request in constructing the
road being apparently only temporary,
it was right in the court to decline to
charge that the amount of the verdict
should be the' difference in the values
without the railroad and with the rail
road, with crossings over and under the
track now there. Order affirmed. '.",

Death of the Stranger Found in
Lafayette Park.
Domestic trouble is ,' assigned as the
cause for the suicide of Gottlieb Hart
man, who shot himself in Lafayette
square early yesterday morning. About
nine months ago the old man went to
the residence of J. L. Wagner, corner
of Spruce and Pine streets, and asked
whether he could not stop there
for two or three ' days; at
least until he received a letter
from his son at Chaska, to whom he had
written for aid. Wagner consented, and
his boarder remained until about a
month ago, when he was asked for some
Meanwhile the son replied to his
father's letter, stating that he was in
such poor circumstances that he coald
not assist him, and advised him to seek
aid elsewhere. This proved too much
for the old gentleman, and after writing
a letter thanking his landlord for the
kindly treatment received, anil another
to his son, he shot himself, dying yes
terday afternoon.

Special Cablegram to the Globe.
Okdox, Tune 18.— result of the
Ayr election has again brought dismay
to the allied forces of Tories and
Unionists. Never was a parliamentary
contest fought on clearer grounds, nor
could there be more unmistakable evi
dence that this part of Scotland, at
least, favored the Irish home rule
scheme of Mr. Gladstone. The
election was contested on this
basis almost solely, as on other
questions, the candidates were
nearly equal. The true significance of
the victory for the Gladstonians lies in
the undoubted fact that Scotland wants
home rule herself, and evidently con
siders the best way to evince such a de
sire is to assist Ireland in her struggle
for it. The usual outcry is made by the
Tory press, nnd it is growing louder as
each defeat brings home the unwelcome
truth that Tory doctrines are losing
their potency in the country. The Times
leads the press in denouncing
exhibited by the government managers
of election and has become exceedingly
anxious over the coining election in the
Isle of Thanet division, the late Col.
King-Harmon's seat, where James Low
ther, the Tory candidate, is making
stupid speeches about the disestablish
ment of the Irish church and other
equally dead issues. The election in
this division will take place on the 29th
Inst. Knatchbull Hussen is the Lib
eral candidate.
The Birmingham Post is out with a
land scheme for Ireland on the basis of
making the tenant the partial owner of
his holding, subject to a moderate tax,
and gives the present owner security on
the marketable value of his land. The
scheme amounts to nationalization and
consequently falls flat. The discussion
which has been aroused by the army
manifesto of William 11. continues to
engage the European press. The ma
jority of those who express opinions
upon the new emperor's proclamation
profess to believe that they are
peaceful utterances. The manifes
toes, however, undoubtedly created a .
deep impression in Russia and France.
They who are best informed upon polit
ical matters in London believe that
Bismarck will now complete the work
of enlarging the army forces and of
raising the military standard, which
circumstances have postponed during
the past year. The speech of Count
Kalnoky to-day to the Austrian delega
tions indicates that ignorance of the
possibilities of the new reign reflects an
uneasiness throughout Europe.
Count Kalnoky Predicts a Con
tinuance of Peace, But Advises
Pre pair at" oaa for War.
Special Cable to the Globe.
Vienna, June Count Kalnoky,
president of the Austro-Hungarian
council, in a speech to the Austrian del
egations to-day, said: "The change of
government which has taken place at
Berlin dominates the present situation
in Europe. The alliance between Aus
tria and Germany has already proved
to be strong, and it is reasonable to hope
that it will survive this second change
in the German throne. Nevertheless,
in the absence of security in the Euro
pean situation, it behooves each nation to
rely upon herself, to solidify herself in
view of the confusion unforieen."

Paris, June IS.— The civil formalities

second daughter of Hon. Sir Lionel
Sackville West, British embassador to
the United States, to M. Salanson, re
cently third secretary of the French le
gation in Washington, took place yes
terday. Lord Lytton and Count De
beon acted as witnesses for the bride.
The marriage will take place to-day.
Flashed Under the Sea.
M. Floquet, president of the ministerial
council, address. the members of the mu
nicipality ot Marseilles Saturday. He said it
was the ambition of the government to effect
internal progressive reform and maintain a
peaceful policy abroad. It was unjust, he
said, to accuse the French ministry of desir
ing war, while they were making prepara
tion for an international exhibition.
t In the election held Sunday for member of
he chamber of deputies for the department
of the Charente, M. Gellibert (Bouapartist)
received 31,401 votes; -I. Welller (Repub
lican) 23.989 and M. Deroulcde 20,6a 6. An
