SAINT PAUL. CHIT CHAT CORNER. Idle Convicts— Test of Errs — Yel -1 ovist one Marvels — Farmers Bobbed— No Calendars Printed — Increased Acreage- ■ ■ Adulter ated Milk. Warden Stordock was a visitor at the capitol yesterday. "What about the 'birds,' " replied the warden to an in terrogation, "why they are playing poker- and generally enjoying them selves." He urged the adoption of the state-account system, and dnl not at all favor convicts "being allowed to spend their time in Idleness. The state had spent about a quarter of a million of dollars in providing a plant for con vict labor under the contract system, and some method should be introduced whereby this could be utilized ami em ployment provided for convicts. It was a matter to be decided upon at once. * * Mr. C. S. Fee, of the Northern Pa cific road, has just returned from the coast, am! while a* Yellowstone Park he saw the Excelsior geyser in opera tion. He describes it as the most Inter esting sight he ever witnessed. The geyser has not been working for sev eral years. He says that out of an im mense crater there ascends, to a height Of 400 feet, a pillar of boiling hot water, accompanied by a terrible howling and roaring, and immense clouds of steam. In the midst of this column of water large rocks, three or four feel in diame ter, are thrown to a great height. The sight of this watery volcano, he says, causes one to think of the bottomless pit. * * ' "There has boon enough money stolen from the farmers of this state to pave hades with gold," rem irked Ignatius Donnellv to Eric Olson, who had an chored his chair in close proximity to that of the sago, at the Merchants last evening. "Yes." was the rejoinder, "and lam going to speak to JohnLTGibbs the next lime 1 see him about a little matter. A company in which 1 am in terested wished to put up an elevator which they i ad moved from Menomonee, Wis., at a small station on the Manitoba road. It had a capacity of $10,000 bush els, which was amply adequate for the needs of the section. But the Manitoba magnates would brook no rival in the field, and the company said we would have to erect an elevator of 30.000 --bushel capacity, which, of course, we did not care to do."' ; * * The district court room presented an animated appearance yesterday after noon. It was the day for the setting of the cases contained in the new calen dar, and the members of the bar, to the number of about 300, were on hand to assist in the work. When the grand lury had boon disposed of, the next lusiness in order was the calling and setting of cases. Judge Kelly asked for calendar, but there was none to be -7*l. Judge Drill called for one, but he was answered by a shake or the head from -Baz" Armstrong. "The Dispatch company has just sent up word," said "Baz," "that the calendars will not be ready until 3 o'clock. Judge Kelly then announced that* owing to the delay in the printing of the calendars, the court would .stand adjourned until I o'clock This announcement was received with more or less disfavor by tbe attorneys present * * Auditor W. W. Braden is a man of practical common sense, and his utter ance given below will no doubt surprise many people. "What is opinion of Vie state of trade when so many farmers save mortgages upon their property?" »as a question put to him yesterday. "I think that it is a good sign," was the reply, "and I'll tell you why. An in quiry into the nature of the mortgages made by agriculturists in this state will demonstrate this fact, that they are not made to keep things going, but to increase the acreage of their farms." "We have great difficulty in the Min neapolis municipal court in having actions against milk sellers disposed of," remarked Dairy j Commissioner Ives yesterday. "There are now several hundred cases on the docket of people charged with selling adulterated milk, and we are experiencing the utmost difficulty in having them brought to settlement. At St. Paul there is no such difficulty. We bring cases into the municipal court, they are dealt with at once, and the result is we are having very little trouble with the milk dealers. They know what will follow any at tempt to adulterate milk, and hence in variably keep within the required •standard." » * A St. Paul commission merchant has a unique way of testing eggs. He puts a box on end in a dark corner of his store, and inside the I o>c he places a lighted tallow caudle. Then he takes v seat in front of the open side of the box, and picking up the eggs, two at a time, holds them between bis eyes and the light. Good eggs have a deep pink color blending into a fiety red, and the darker this color becomes, the older are the eggs. When the shade ' becomes black, the eggs are worthless. The merchant staled that all eggs of ques tionable age or that hail been shaken around much, be tested them in Ibis way before putting them on the market. He added, facetiously, that the average country woman never hesitated to sell old or tainted eggs to the storekeeper or huckster. AMID FRIENDS AND FLOAYER:-> Nuptials of Gates Johnson and Miss Lisette Tra in in. At S o'clock last evening. Gates A. Johnson, "Jr. and Miss Lisettt E. Tramm, both of this city, were united in the bonds of matrimony by Rev. Dr. MaoLaren. of the Central Presbyterian church. The ceremony took place at the home of the bride's sister, 232>j Western avenue south. The ap partments wherein the happy event occurred, were beautifully decorated with smilax, white and tea roses, with an archway of evergreens, from the cen ter of which hung the marriage bell, composed of tuberoses and other flow ers. A reception was held between the hours of S and 10 o'clock, which was at tended by about seventy-live of the friends and relatives of the happy couple. James Johnson, brother of the groom. was best man, assisted by lied Boltz. Miss Hattie Tramm, sister of the bride, and Miss Julia Wetter were the bridesmaids. The bride wore olive satin, steel trimmings, orange blossoms and veil; the bridesmaids, pink and blue satin, decollete corsage and roses.

Candidates Who Have An nounced Their Intention to Run for Office. Dredging and Deepening the Channel of the Father of Waters. Enthusiastic Stockholders Declare in Favor of a Win ter Carnival. AMBITIOUS POLITICIANS Cast Covetous Eyes on the Various County Positions. Xow that the Republicans have taken the initiative in regard to "the county conventions, it is expected that the Dem ocrats will shortly fall into line in the same direction, and from this time for ward the campaign promises to be de cidedly interesting. The Republican primaries for delegates to the conven tion which will select candidates for the legislature from Ramsey coun ty will be held Friday evening, between 6 and 7 o'clock, in the seven legislative districts of the county. Saturday afternoon the primaries will be held, between 5 ami 7 o'clock, for del egates to a convention which will choose candidates for the county offices, ami the probabilities are that very live ly times are in store, owing to the num ber of gentlemen who are anxious to fill these positions in the gift of the people. Both conventions will be held at Market _ ill Monday. For the oflice of sheriff there are tour Democrats who would like to succeed Sher ilF Richter, their names being George Moeller, Thomas Caulfield. A. D. Wentink and Nic Pottgeiser, Jr. Among his Republican brethren there are several applicants for the sheriffalty, the most prominent being ('apt. E. S. Bean, who has been an avowed candi date for several . months, and is very sanguine of being the nominee of the Republican convention. His claims are disputed by Charles Chap-pel, C. W. Miller, John Harris, of North St. Paul, John Lesch; and Sheriff Richter would not be averse to holding down his chair for another term. For county auditor M. F. Kain will be the nominee of his party, and basal ready been indorsed by the label peo ple for the position, although Messrs. Joseph Osborne and Henry C. Ford, of the Manitoba shops, have also an nounced that they are candidates. For register of deeds (apt. M. J. O'Connor and W. A. Van Slyke seem to be the strongest candidates among the Democrats, and P. J. Geisen, who was beaten two years ago, would like to try it again. The incumbent, M. J. Bell, • has made a satisfactory official, but his place is coveted by another Republican, Gregory P. Ritt. There does not seem to be any opposi tion to the renoniination of W. E. Bur ton, county treasurer on the Democratic ticket, and of F. A. Ren/, on the Repub lican. Talk among Republicans indicates that there will be no opposition to County Attorney J. J. Egan, and that he will be indorsed by their convention for. this position. Thomas Ryan, who has been nominated by the Labor conven tion, will seek an indorsement at the hands of the Republicans, but as a prominent member of that party said yesterday, "Judge Egan is a good man ami should be left alone/ The same may be said of Probate Judge E. Stone Gorman, who will be renominated and undoubtedly receive the support of both Repuolicans and Democrats. Coroner Quinn will be the nominee of the Republican convention, and the Democrats will oppose him with Dr. Markoe, and it is understood that Dr. Kelly would li^e to bold inquests. County Superintendent N. (J. Blake has given universal satisfaction, and all the indications point to his renomina tioii ami indorsement by both parties. While nothing has been agreed upon regarding the candidates for the legis lature, the names most prominently mentioned among the Republicans are J. (i. Flinipiist, tor the district compris ing the First and Second wards; Hiram I*. Stevens, a portion of the Fourth and the Sixth wards; William F. Bickel,Jr., a portion of the Fourth and the Ninth ward; F. C. Stevens, for the Tenth and Eleventh' wards and country; Waller H. Sanborn, for the district comprising the Seventh and Eighth wards. Ueb hard Willrich is also mentioned in con nection with the nomination of the lat ter district. in the Filth ward the name most frequently mentioned is that of George 11. Warren. IMPROVING THK CHANNEL. Progress of Work on the Missis sippi by the Engineer Corps. Maj. McKenzie, of the United States engineer corps, in charge of the work of improving the Mississippi river from Keokuk to St. Paul, was in the city yesterday on a tour of inspection. The : work of river improvement in his district is now confined to the section between 1 St. Paul and Hastings, where a force of j sixty men under (apt. Dushane, with the I". S. steamer Fury, steam launches ; Louise and Stella, a large dredge and [ twenty or thirty barges, are engaged in j the construction of a system of wing I dams for the purpose of contracting the i channel, ami dredging through trouble ; some "bars." At Island No. 17, three ' miles above Hastings, th re were but ; thirty inches of water ten days ago. ; The sounding at this ctossing is now over live feet, several days' work hav ing been put in there in the construc tion of four or live dams. At the "Frenchman's bar," just below Dayton's bluff, where there have been but two ami a half feet of water for some time, the dredge boat is DOW in opera- ion, and the prospects arc that a channel i five or six feet in depth will soon be Cut i through. Since Sept. 1 St. Paul has been virtually an inland city so far as ! large steamers are concerned, the river j to this point being navigable only by ! the smaller craft. The work of im- j provement, however, has proceeded to such an extent that the steamer Sidney j came up Monday, and experienced but little difficulty at the crossings whicli have heretofore been impassable. The work at •"Frenchman's bar" will soon be completed, and it is said by river men that the upper Mississippi will then be in better condition in low water stage than for several years past. Organized a Colored Club. Colofed citizens held a well-attended and animated meeting at the court house last night for the purpose of or ganizing a club. The discussion, which at times waxed warm, lasted three hours. Some wanted to give the club a politi cal character and others opposed it. the latter being successful in carrying their point. The organization was called the Ramsey County Colored club. T. H. lyles was elected president; J. W. Lucas, H. Howard and E. I*. Wade, vice presidents; J. 11. Beasley, secre tary ;and Robert Banks. treasurer.l Du ring the session speeches were made by Col. A. A, Jones, Rev. William Gray, D. 11. Saunders and others. -7 - At the close of the meeting the belief was expressed by some that the club i would soon lose its social character and be used for political purposes, which, they claimed, was the ultimate con cealed object of its organization. Both political parties were represented. THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 26, 1838. ICE PALACE DIRECTORS. Novel and Unequaled Attractions Are Promised. "St. Paul will probably be. the only place in the world this winter that can boast of an ice palace." These remarks were uttered by W. A. Van Slyke last evening at a meeting of stockholders of the Ice Palace and Carnival association. The meeting was held to select twenty one directors of the association and was presided over by Hon. Albert Scheffer, among those -present being F. K. Welz, 1). B. Finch, M.D. Munn, D. McClaskey, L. 11. Maxfield and G. Thompson. The directors elected were Messrs. G. Benz, F. R. Welz, John Summers, Whitney Wall, E. I. Frost, Capt. Beau, W. A. Van Slyke, C. llornick, E. W. l'eet, D. McClaskey, Albert Scheffer, D. K. Noyes, J. 11. Burwell. William M. Bushnell, M. D. Munn. Lew Kobinson, Harry Ives, C. W. Gordon, C. S. Fee, Edmund Rice, Jr., and W. S. Morton. While the tellers were counting the votes cast Mr. Van Slyke briefly ad dressed the stockholders. He suggested that the carnival and ice palace be con ducted a week or ten days, as hereto fore, and, in addition, that the ice pal ace should be continued lighted for one month, lf this were done it would at tract thousands of people to the city from all quarters of the continent. George Thompson— will be a matter for the city to decide. Mr. Van Slyke— We will get the city to do that; at least 1 think so. The com mittee appointed to arrange a pro gramme are proceeding with the work, and will propose some excellent attrac tions. The stockholders having adjourned, the newly-elected directors held a for mal meeting, with Mr. Van Slyke in the chair. They finally adjourned to Monday, when the organization will be perfected. MAY JLOSE. Another Theater Proposed for St. „ Paul. It will not be definitely settled until to-morrow whether Lotta will become the owner of the Grand opera liouse in this city, and already steps have been taken to secure a return of the $5,000 earnest money paid in the event of a failure of pending negotiations. Complications have arisen growing out of the arrange ment of details between the present owners and Manager Scott, and these have been further increased by the formation of a syndicate to erect a new theater in this city. Manager Conk ling, of the Grand in Minneapolis, has organized a syndicate, and it is proposed to erect the new structure upon the site of the glass block, at the corner of Fourth and St. Peter streets. He states that "the syndicate have purchased a tract of land in St. Paul, and may build a theater there. We have worked with the Grand in St. Paul for many years, but now that there is a prospect of Lotta becoming the owner of it, she wants a house of her own here, and has talked of purchasing the ilen uepin Avenue theater. Of coarse, if she does that she will run the two in connection, and we would be left out in the cold. It is necessary tp have a liouse in St. Paul because you can't get combinations to come up here to play in one city." When questioned on the subject last evening Manager Scott chuckled mer rily as he said: "Tt is a go, and the new theater will be built if the Grand changes owners. There is ample capi tal behind the syndicate, for 1 am inter ested in tue matter myself. A new theater would do a good business, es pecially if the right kind of a book was made, and the proprietors of the enter prise do not fear failure." PALLIUM PREPARATIONS. All in Readiness for a Popular Demonstration. Committees having charge of the ar rangements incident to the conferring of the pallium on Archbishop Ireland Thursday met last evening at Crusad ers' hall. Father Slianley was chosen chairman, and J. G. Donnelly sec retary. Trie chair stated that Arch bishop Ireland was desirous of having all the members of the committees come to the Ryan and dine with the clergy. Accordingly all com mittees will meet at the hotel at 2 o'clock, sharp. The clergy will be driven about the city in the afternoon in carriages, which a committee will have in readiness. In the evening an other drive will be taken along the illuminated streets. Mr. Van Mykt-* has suggested the following as the line of drive: Episcopal residence to Wabasha, Wabasha to Third, Third to Sibley, Sibley to Seventh, Seventh to Kobert. Robert to Kyan ho tel. The question of electric lights and line of drive was referred to the execu tive committee. Invitations will be submitted to the archbishop and Father Slianley for their approval.! The chair stated that the archbishop of Winnipeg had already arrived, and that thirteen visiting bishops from other cities would be present. Rooms had been secured for all at the Ryan. It is the intention to serve refreshments in the dining room after the reception. The following gentlemen were added to the committee on reception: Will iam A. Van Slyke, C. 1. McCarthy, L. X. Dion. Ed Langevin. Alderman Me lady. Michael Doran, Adam Fetsch, Charles Friend. Andrew Mark. Thomas Manning, Dr. Simons, James Cleary, P. R. D. Hardonburgh, Patrick Butler. Patrick Dougher, E. F. Berrisford, J. F. McGuire. Subscriptions were received as fol lows: Patrick Keigher, SiT); E. F. Ber risford. $25; George Reis, 926; J. B. St. Aub'm, Si"); and J. J. Egan, $10. MAKING BETTER BRICKS. Necessity for an Improved Qual ity in Business Operations. Building Inspector Johnson is exam ining a new kind of brick which has just been made by a man who lives near Lake Como. It was made out of Hure clay, without the ordinary mixture of sand, and looks like good material. The building inspector will test the new brick both as to its ability to stand water and fire. So far as he had gone yester day he thought it would prove satisfac tory. "It will be a good thing for the gentleman who owns the land where the clay is located," said the inspector, "as well as for the city, if the brick proves all right. At the pres ent time almost every contract for a building has the brick specified, "some kind in the state being mentioned. St. Paul brick is not used except for some of the cheaper buildings because the quality is not good. The brick manu- ; facturers here are anxious to make too big profits. If they can save six or ten cords of wood in baking a quantity of brick they will do it. They want to get rich. too fast and for that reason their bricks are not used. 1 believe the time will come when tliere will be no demand for St. Paul brick, unless the manufacturers make a better quality, and St. Paul is one of the best markets in the country for properly manufac tured material."' A NEW COURT TERM. Instructions From the Bench to the Grand Jurors. The September term of the district court of Ramsey county began yester day at 10 a. m., Judges Brill and Kelly being on the bench. The grand jury was impaneled and afterwards charged by Judge Kelly, who impressed upon its members the importance of the duties they were about to perform, and read several chapters of the statutes bearing on the duties of grand jurors. Una. It. W. Johnson was appointed foreman. The other members are: Robert Mannheimer, Edward Scott, James H. Mahler. Thomas H. Lyles, Arnold Kaliuan, Henry C. Ives, R. W. Ransom. James C. Morrison, Francis 11. Loomis, Albert M. Lawton, Edward Ingham, A. R. Klefer, Adam H. Lohl ker, Thomas Riley, James Middleton, Henry D. Mayhew aud A. 11. Lindeke. At 2 o'clock Judge Kelly began the setting af the cases of the new calendar. It was a tedious proceeding, and it was 5 o'clock before tlie laat case was reached. A number of new cases were added to the calendar. v v. ABATED A NUISANCE. Satisfactory Test of a Nov Smoke ' Burner. MANY PEOPLE GRATIFIED. Dismissal of Proceedings Instituted Against tbe Edison Electric Light" 1 : *-* Company. v* _____ :t ■:■ •■' tRd The case against the Edison Electric Lieht company, which was brought in the municipal court some time ago ,^y i Building Inspector Johnson, was dis missed yesterday. 7- '___, The building inspector, with the con sent of Attorney Stevens, who repre sented the people, agreed some time ago to give the company time to have smoke burners and fuel-saving contrivances applied to the boilers. These were com pleted on all except two boilers Mon day, and yesterday a test ..pf. their working was given in. the presence of the building inspector, the attorney for the people and other gentlemen. The test proved satisfactory and the case was conse quently dismissed. Speaking about the matter yesterday afternoon, Mr. John son said: "There are innumerable de vices to abate the smoke nuisance, but this is the best I have seen. The trouble has not only been with the contrivance but frequently with . ENGINEEUS AND FIREMEN. When a change has been made a fire man sometimes dislikes the device, and consequently it is no eood. This burner, . however, is a device, or rather a system, of brick arches; and when once placed in a boiler requires no attention, except as to the door of the furnace. This is left open, and fur nishes the draft, and is successful in that it makes a more complete com bustion of the fuel. It is cheap, and I understand that the contract which the manager of the company gives guar antees a saving of 10 per cent of fuel. That, if true, would pay for a consumer three or four times over in a year. But, even if there is no saving of fuel, the cost is nothing compared to the nuisance that it does away with. I hope this will be put into ail the boil ers which have proven a nuisance here. Now last year a number of the dry goods merchants on Third street testi fied as to the injury they received from the opera house smoke stack. It counted up in the thousands of dollars; and for the small sum that this costs, I suppose that can be done away with. No, 1 am not the one under the new law to mak the complaint, but when those who have the grievance make it known, I will certainly try to have it remedied." . : REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES. Choosing Delegates to the Legis lative Convention. A subcommittee of the Republican county committee met in the Lincoln club rooms yesterday afternoon, and selected polling places for the primaries to be held Fri day afternoon for delegates to the legislative convention Monday at Mar ket hall.

A labor mass meeting was held last evening at the hall, 70 East Seventh street. After listening to stirring ad dresses by J. A. Johnson and James McGuire, the meeting indorsed the county ticket nominated by the conven tion held last Saturday.

There will be a meet ing of the various labor clubs ofthe city next Thursday at Labor hall, on East Seventh street. Democratic Hosts Rallying.
