The term '-front" was not generally
Osed by hotel clerks until Charley
Hoyt's play brought it to public atten
tion. Then the clerk's "caught on,"
and it could be heard in every hotel. It
seems to be dying out again. Hotel
clerks have different ways of attracting
the attention of the boys. There is a
clerk at Minnetonka who simply gives
*'clucks" with his tongue when he wants
a boy. It is not known whether that is a
fashionable fad or a bad habit. Speak
ing about the habit of calling "front," a
gentleman said last night he never
could understand "why they yelled
"front' when they are always sending
them back."

A New York diamond merchant sat
in the Ryan yesterday afternoon. He
was ; neatly dressed, but no one would
ever suspect, from his appearance.what
his business was. There was not a
spark nor a piece of jewelry.in sight.
♦•That is the way those diamond mer
chants always go," said a gentleman
speaking about the absence of jewelry.
*T know three of them from New York
and they always travel plainly and
without show. One of them never
wears a white shirt, nothing but the j
plain woolen ones. When they go out
to do business or travel I suppose there
is never a day but what they carry from
$70,000 to si 50,000 worth of diamonds
about their vest pockets, and yet you
would never suspect that there was a
spark within a mile of them."

"Considerable interest is manifested,"
' said Secretary Robert Miller, of the
Democratic state central committee,
•in the approaching convention at Bal
timore, Md., of the national league of
Democratic clubs. The convention will
be held under the auspices of the Young
Men's Democratic clubs of New York
i and Brooklyn, and the sessions will be
held three days, commencing July 4." \
A number of clubs already organized,"
or in process of -formation throughout
the Northwest, and Minnesota and Wis
consin particularly, are going- to the
convention in a body, and are perfect
ing arrangements with the railroads for
that purpose. The league was organ
ized before that of the Republicans,
which met at New York several . weeks
ago, but the promoters thought it ad
visable to defer calling a convention
until after the presidential nominations
were made by both parties.

Republicans Turning" Longing*
Eyes Across the Blue
Waters to Jamie.
Leaning wearily against the . counter
at the Merchants yesterday afternoon
was Cant. Frank Gilford, of Shakopee,
one of the alternates sent by the Repub
licans of the Third district of Minnesota
to represent them at the Chicago con
"Chaos would be a mild way of ex
pressing the situation," he said, "and
tossed on a sea of trouble the Repub
licans turn longing eyes across the
water to Blame to relieve them from
their perplexity. Reports telegraphed
from Chicago cannot give any concep
tion of the condition of affairs, and no
man knows what a minute even may
bring forth. Still I would not be sur
prised if a nomination were postponed
for several days with a view to
tiring out a majority of the dele
gates. Many of them are anxious
to get away from Chicago and princi
pally because their finances are running
low. When they left their homes after
taking advantage ot the cheap rates of
transportation, they thought that they
would be detained at the convention
not over four days and made provisions
accordingly. But money slips away
very fast at a convention, and the con
sequence is that
and need money in their purses to keep
them comfortably. Such enthusiasm I
have never seen, and do. not expect to
again, as reigns at Chicago. Train
after train rolls into the city and dis
charges its living freight in the shape
of campaign clubs and political organi
zations of every description, who swarm
in the hotel corridors and surge through
the darkened streets of the Convention
city. It was- lucky- for Minneapolis
that the national committee did not
decide upon that city as the meeting
place of the .convention, for the Twin
Cities could not begin to accommodate
the crowds that have been in attendance
at Chicago during the past week. They
would have been compelled to camp
out, or else go to the lakes in this vicin
ity had the plum fallen to the represent
ative cities of the Northwest, and the
people are to be congratulated that their
powers of hospitality have not been
Sleep was an utter impossibility.
When I went to Chicago 1 thought
surely that by taking, a room on the
third floor of the Grand Pacific and
shutting my windows" that I could expe

that I required. But.l; r vyaCs3dly mis
taken in my calculations,'. for the tur
moil of the crowds around the hotels
does not diminish in the least as night
approaches, but it continues '.. .
Every nook is permeated with enthusi
asm and noise', and even on the" house
tops of the tallest buildings in Chicago
there are groups of \ hilarious spectators
who make the welkin ring. And amid
all the bustle and confusion the dele
gates to the convention are ho nearer ] a
choice than they . were a .week ago.
There seems to, be , a determination not
to desert their champions, but to stick it
out until the last*, hoping for some
favorable turn of fortune's tide. To off
set the rage for the red bandana, silk
handkerchiefs stamped to resemble

The fidelity of this delegation to" their
idol is something remarkable, and they
declare that California will cast its vote
solidly in the convention for its only
choice and will hear of no compromise
A great deal has been said concerning
that speech of Bob Ingersoll and that it
practically killed Gresham before the
convention. Had Mr. Ingersoll con
tented himself with his glowing des
cription of the career for the Republican
party without bringing in names and
making - distinctions, his- effort would
have.gone down to history side by side
with his outburst of oratory when he
nominated Blame in 1876. . But no, he
brought about discord by the declara
tion that only "" .': " "-'_ .' : '
and thereby earned the ill will of hun
dreds of delegates whom he should
have rather conciliated than otherwise.
What the outcome will be no one is pre-'
pared to hazard an opinion, but it looks
very much as though Blame would be
nominated, after all, uuless he sends
another message to the convention, pos
itively declining to allow the use of his
name. I was a Blame man until this
year, but lam satisfied that he is in
earnest in his declination, and hence I
favor Gresham. That seems to be the.
underlying sentiment of the West, but
the trouble with our man is that he is
not well enough known in the East,:
except as the foe of corporations and
that is being operated to his disadvan
tage. For a time yesterday it looked as'
though McKinley was the coming man,:
his manly, straightforward course in
standing by Senator Sherman earning
deserved commendation, from everyone s
in that vast assembly. But he waved!
the honor aside and stood by his colors,
and all the more credit to him for such
an action. ' My business needed me at
Shakopee and I was reluctantly com-'
polled to tear myself away from a good
thing, but Delegate Chandler, for whom
1 was alternate, announced his deter
mination to stay until the last horn
blew. . ' . .. ■ . .--'•;■
Demands Made Upon St. Paul's
Relief Society. ..;
The public knows but little of the
work of the Relief society of St. Paul,'
and the means it takes to provide ~i for
those unfortunates who come under its .
care. At No. 141 East Ninth street, the
office of the society,' Secretary R. Hall
and General Agent M. L. Hutchins
may be found busy all day answering
the demands for aid that come to their
Naturally such a bureau will receive
numerous applications from unworthy
persons and impostors, as well as those
who come for advice of all kinds.
"We receive many applications," said
Secretary Hall, "from people who want
to leave St: Paul and go to some other
place. Yesterday we had a case of this
kind from an Italian who wanted to re
visit his own country, but had only 15.
He thought we ought to buy him
a ticket as far as New York anyway.
A similar case was that of a Hollander
who wanted us to let -him' have ?G5 to
He said that he had heard v that there
.was plenty of work in -Helena, and that

which he replied that he was not,- but
thought he could get something to do. -■'
A young man wanted us to guarantee
him a month's board. He had been in
temperate, but was trying to do better.
He had secured a situation in .the city,
but wouldn't be paid off until the end
of the month, and- wasted •« us to take
care of him until he . received his
salary. . . . : ■ '*-'?.■ '- ■:■
i Impostors are shown up in the papers
just as soon as we are sure of them.
For instance there are two men with
sore arms whom Judge Cory was kind
enough to send out to our summer re
sort at Como. Their case was fully ex
posed in the Globe a few days ago."
"One queer - case that happened a
couple of weeks ago," said General
Ageut Ilutchins, "was that of a man
who came to me for advice. This man
had been _:•;..; .•';'-■■
but had been .discharged -as cured.
When he returned fp St. Paul somebody,
told him that another man was living
with his wife. Husband No. 2 was un
deniably a hard character, and the re
turning husband was actually afraid to
go home and seek an interview with his
wife. So he wanted me to go along and
defend him. I told him that he had
only heard that this man was with his
wife,- and it might not be so. I advised
him to go and see the woman and if he
was really afraid, to have a policeman
within easy call. He was to come back ;
and tell me if his wife was untrue to
him, but as I have not seen anything of
him since, nor read of his murder, I sup
pose matters must have been arranged
on a satisfactory basis." ' '
Rev. Samuel G. Smith's Ideas and
The announcement that Rev. Samuel
G. Smith would preach his last sermon
for the summer, prior to taking heeded
rest for a couple of months, attracted a
large congregation to the Grand opera
house yesterday morning, and the dis
course was a very able and instructive
one. Mr. Smith chose as his subject,
"What is Christianity? and said:
Many difficulties attended any at
tempt to apprehend the essence of the
Christian religion, as definition exact
and true up n any subject required
very great care. The majority of dis
putes between men upon speculative
subjects arose from the fact that they
used words in different senses, and in
practical matters they looked at facts
from a different point of view. ;. -
Men have no difficulty in saying in a
certain broad realm a Christian man
will do this and will ' avoid that, but
when they attempted to settle what it
was that constituted this determining
factor, Christianity, they were usually
very far from agreeing. -It was impos
sible for even so" broad a man as Dean
Stanley to escape from the fact that all
the roots of his being were planted in
the Anglican communion, and in his
mind Hebrew history
Christianity was a revelation and not
a discovery. Its material was human
and earthly but its power and ideals
were out of heaven. Christianity might
be summed up in the words "A new and
living way." It was a new factor in
human history. It entered manifestly
into the realm of the tangible and prac
ticable.and the earliest preachers dwelt
upon facts and not speculation.' This
was the method of Jesus Himself.
He sought no proof of speculation, no
agreement to any sermon or parable.
Like a building made after most
splendid patterns but constructed of
shabby material and put together by
clumsy workmen, so the ideals of Chris
tianity had always beengreater than its
visible results.
• Christianity had never been cor
rupted, or made venal, because the spir
itual could never be the impure. It was
of the essense of Christianity to receive
the message of Jesus, "I and My Father
are one." as the = promise to all who
would be His disciples,
A third element in the force, named
Christianity, was found in the statement
that : '•..-•..
Paul hastened to say that letters of
commendation or even instruction were
only secondary. Men and women were
to be the living epistles, the real Bible,
the animated gospel. The most sig
nificant thing about the projection of
Christianity into the world was the im
mediate change it wrought in individ
uals. '. ;V:--_."- :
Silver and gold have we none, said the
apostle at the beautiful-: gate to the
cripple, but in the the name of Jesus,
rise up and walk. So to men crippled
by old habits, palsied by manifold' sins,
fever smitten through: generations of
hate, there came the command, "Rise
up; be strong." Making of sound men
out of spiritual cripples had been the
constant work of Christianity in all ages,
as it is its chief glory to-day.
But these men and women, moved by
new motives to new work, in a new re
lation to God, also had a new fellowship,
for the social idea was -of the very
essence of the gospel. The kingdom of
God was a new commonwealth. -
These were some of the leading feat
ures of Christianity. It represented
the highest activity as well as the high
est aspirations of'mankiug. The end
of Christianity would be no earthly
funeral amid the stricken -
The purest and best among the re
ligions of earth, it would absorb and
glorify the strength of the nations, and
Christianity would pass away when the
earth passed, not into . a new chaos, but
to a new heaven and a new earth. It
would be a translation . into that final
and perfect religion when the Son Him
self finished His work and became sub
ject to His Frther, that God might be
all in all.
By the Slipping of a Pin at the
Power House.
The big bull wheel in the powerhouse
of the cable railway got out of tune
early yesterday morning, and conse
quently the cable cars didn't run until
about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. The
trouble was caused by one of the pins
in the wheels working loose and allow
ing the wheel to slip out of gear along
the main shaft. By means of a number,
of jack screws and a force of men suffi
cient pressure was finally obtained to
push the pulley back into its place,
after which the big engine was again"
set in motion. The cars were distributed
all along the line, and had not made
their first morning trip when the acci
dent occurred. "*"■.. -'."..; -;"' :

'a;.- Red Rock camp meeting was visited
: yesterday by thousands of people who
began to arrive early in the morning, by
boats, trains and other conveyances, of
ill • denominations, * races and color,
The roads leading to the grounds pre
sented continuous lines of carriages,
and even the fact that they were going
to a Methodist camp meeting restrained
the occupants from indulging in numer
ous brushes. The morning trains from
the cities were later than usual. Only
a portion of those present had an oppor
tunity of hearing the principal speak
. ers, and hundreds wandered about the
• grove, some ; picnicking beneath the
shady trees, -while others gathered
about the praying bands which were
scattered through the grounds.
. The morning services in the pavilion
.were opened with the second quarterly
review of the Sunday school lessons by
J. D. Blake, of Minneapolis. Long be
fore the hour fixed for the opening ser
mon the people began to pour into the
The half hour song service was par
ticularly interesting,the choir displaying
the training of their efficient leader.
The morning sermon was by Sam
Jones, whose text was: "For God so
loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
in Him should not perish, but have
everlasting life.".
The first part of his discourse was de
voted to the compass and nature of
God's love. "I have wondered some
times," he said, "where is the great
storehouse of God's love? I believe
God loves the infidel as well as the
saint. When I was a drunken vagabond
my wife loved me more then : she does
now, because, as she has said, 1 needed
it more." He scored the preachers for
preaching an avenging wrath on the
part of God. rather than a love that
never ceased, and declared that such
preaching was destroying the church
and - : * : ..". " • .-','...*.
"If you do without a hell," he con
tinued, "you will have alone wandering
crowd, and what will you do with them?
If you tell me why a man will leave a
pure wife and go to the {rambling room,
1 will tell you why there is a hell and a
heaven. Why, that man can not stay in
the little heaven £od has given him
here, but is off to hell five minutes after
supper. You talk of brimstone, but
lam not trying to find out anything
- about it. Some of you are, however,
and if I were in your place I would do
so too, for if I was going to emigrate to
a country, I would want to know some
thing about it."
?,' In speaking of monopolists he said
that it was not the Vanderbilts and
-Goulds who were going to drive this
country into communism, but it was
monopolists who were paying 60 cents a
dozen to poor over-worked seamstresses.
St. Paul and Minneapolis have been
-owing out until they can't spread any
more. „ .""•_:
"They are only about one inch thick
a_d the lower half inch is composed of
the liquid of hell that is flowing out of
the saloons. There is cowardice in the
church all over this country. You get
down on your knees and ask God to
drive out whisky, but you must vote it
out, for God can't vote. You say this is
a presidential year, and 1 am going to
stick to my party if the country goes to
damnation. 1 would rather have the
old devil president the next four years,
. and no whisky drank, than to have any
irian you can put up and have whisky;
because I believe that if the devil had
no whisky to give his people, he would
-resign the position and go back to hell.
There are twice as many prohibitionists
in the country to-day as there were abo
litionists ten years before the abolition
of slavery. Just as sure as we are here
to-day the whisky traffic is going out of
this country. . :X- -_' ■'•■-• -
When the devil get? one, of you anti
prohibition preachers in hell, he will
bridle him and take him about to show
off his little pet animal."
He spoke of ministers who neglected
politics and called jjiemselves simply
"a minister of the gospel." "Deliver
me," he said, -'from one of these minis
ters who goes about with a half-fare
ticket in his pocket as if offering men
an apology for living. Some lady in my
audience says she don't like such talk
because [ am hitting her pastor, some
D. D. of the church. Well, if am, trot
him out; I would like to
V At the conclusion offerings were asked
for the support of the orphan asylum
over which Mr. Jones has control, and a
generous response followed.
About 2 o'clock rain began to fall and
the people swarmed into the pavilion,
filling it before the choir assembled.
Sam Small preached from the text
"Wherefore He is also able tosave them
to the uttermost, that come into God by
Him." In the course of the sermon he
said: "God is not pleased with the
death of the sinner. . Jesus Christ is the
Savior of men. These who are living a
saved life know it as well as they know
whether or not they came here by the
Burlington road. They know that the
past has been blotted out, ami that
I Jesus Christ is the Savior of men; thank
j God for that Savior. Christ was made

I Ruskin says that all the possibilities
; of God are born in men. These are di

r from this diverting power of life, if you
| want salvation to clothe you with a gar
: ment, Jesus Christ is the only power
• than can save you. Reformation is not
s salvation, and there needs to be a strong
; line drawn just there.

• Their Manners and Customs
-Described by a Missionary.
. .For the first time in the history of
Christ church, the pulpit was occupied
last evening by a foreign missionary.
: It was the Rev. S. .W. Sayres, a
. pleasant faced, earnest man. who, for
'■ the past six and a half years has been
I stationed in China. After a brief
• introduction by Bishop Gilbert .the
: . missionary . the addressed ... audi
. ence j from the text, "Behold, these
: shall come from far; and 10, those from
j the North and from the West, and
,' these from the land of Sinim." ':..--.
| i . "Over 700 years before Christ," said
: Mr. Sayre, -• "when these words were
. uttered, China possessed many of . the
■ institutions and i characteristics 'ot , the
' present day. The world is a living ex
. emplification of the old , truth _ that : the.
days of those who honor father and
: mother shall be long in the land, for
• filial piety is ingrained in all the cus
: toms, institutions and religions of : the
, Chinese..':-; . >. ' .
. The : people -.style; themselves - the
"middle •, kingdom" and-' believe 'that
) they' constitute . by. far the , most im
portant part of the world. They also call
themselves "All Under Heaven," the
"Long-Haired Race" and the "Flowery
Nation," the latter name not ; referring
to flowers, but' meaning polished and
refined. There are many reasons for -
supposing them to come from the same
root as the . North .American. Indian.
The Chinese language is very singular.
It is not alphabetical, but embraces in
its written form .40,000 words, repre
sented by the same number of charac
ters. In their spoken language a
word may have T. sometimes eight tones
or inflections, each having a different
meaning. The Chinese writings are very .
concise as a rule, but in ancient manu
scripts, deep and obscure. Three
fourths of the people speak the man
darin or official dialect, but many in
terior towns have a patois not easily
understood. I have known instances in
which people living on opposite sides of
a river were unable to understand
each other's speech. I have gone
for ; months without hearing a
word of English spoken. China
has . three .... religions .. permitted by ■
government, besides .many local relig
ions winked at by the state officials.
Buddhism is the state religion, and be
ing of greater respectability than the
others, is professed by nearly all. It
holds many superstitions and- appeals
to the principle of fear, having eight
een hells. It also teaches of heaven,
though this is a. later idea. Coufuciius
religion is one of morality, pro
fessing to know nothing of
the future, but holding up a
wonderful system of moral principles
and high ideals of life, which unfortun
ately its devotees do not attempt to live
up to. Taulism is a religion much allied
to the astrology aud the mysticism of
the Middle Ages. The practices of all
these religions are most degrading,
though their principles keep alive the
idea of immortality and have done
something to prepare the way for
Christianity. - .:•-_.
China's greatest obstacle to progress
is its intense conservatism. Tremen
dous moral courage is necessary to
break away from the old customs and
the convert to x Christianity is looked
upon as an outcast and a traitor, losing '
family, home, social standing, reputa
tion and business to become sometimes
a beggar. The Chinese moral charac
ter is full of deceit, and the elements of
'love and gentleness are almost unknown.
How can it be otherwise when a wife
is often bought for $30 and sold in a
short time as a slave? Infanticide
abounds unpunished. 1 might relate
many horrible cases of barbarity, but .
one will suffice. to show the brutality of ■
their character. One of their punish
ments is to place the culprit in a large
cage in the middle of the street, and he
is left there to starve to death— the
death penalty being enforced for giving
the offender food. : . . '' .
• Although base, the Chinese character
is strong and capable of producing
much. They are a pushing people and
when once they adopt a thing stay by it
firmly. China is yet unexplored and
unknown, but it is larger in area than
the United States, possesses great nat
ural wealth, and when the people are
Christianized, as they ultimately will be,
China will make one of the greatest na
tions of the earth, contributing its full
share to the world's wealth, whether
political, social, financial or moral.
