HENDERSON Library Board :- ( ROGER VAIL THE ISSUE IS DEFINED. The issues as between the Democratic and Republican parties of the county of Hennepin have already been fully and clearly defined in the Globe. The Issues presented in the city campaign are just as sharp and decisive, and on them the battle will be fought. The Democratic party stands, first: For local self-government. It believes in permitting the people of Minneapolis to manage their own af fair and administer their own govern ment. The Republican party believes in depriving the people of Minneapolis of this right, and in carrying to a farmer legislature the private and municipal affairs of the city. How will workingmen vote? How will all citizens vote? The Democratic party is pledged to substitute day work for the contract system. The day system lias been tried thoroughly and found to be more economical and in every way better. The Republican party is pledged to the Did contract system. How will labor vote? The Democratic party is pledged to the short-day system of labor in city work. The Republican party is pledged to the old system of ten hours a day. How will labor vote? These are the issues. Can any one doubt the result? _ • o YOUR DUTY TO REGISTER. On Tuesday next the books will be opened for registration at every precinct in Minneapolis. It is of the highest Importance that every voter bear one fact in mind you cannot vote unless you are registered. There is no swear tug in on election day under the new law. Your name must be on the regis tration books or your vote is lost. The first chance to register will be offered next Tuesday, and there is every reason why this important duty should not be neglected. The change of precincts all over the city necessitates more time and will cause trouble and delay in securing the registration, so it is best to begin early. Register, then, on Tuesday. After you see that your own name is on the books, see that your Democratic neighbor's is there and urge him to pre vail on his neighbors to turn out. This is a duty every Democrat owes it to his party to discharge. ._» CARNIVAL OF BURGLARY. The Police Would Suppress, but Officers Give Them Away. "Notwithstanding the repeated asser tions of the police that there are no bur glaries being committed in Minneapolis at the present time, the fact remains that one or more are reported nearly every clay, and then suppressed in order that the "ends of justice might not be defeated." The talk that no burglaries are being committed is good enough as far as it goes, but the trouble is that it does not go far. Arthur N. Keith, residing at 8906 First avenue south, reported to the po lice Friday afternoon that thieves had entered his residence while the family was at dinner and had got away with some $1,200 worth of jewelry and cloth ing. The thief evidently visited nearly all the rooms in the house, and bureau drawers were pulled out and the con tents scattered around, and handker chief and work-baskets overturned and scattered around. Thursday evening the residence of William Keegan, at GIG Cedar avenue, was entered and a small quantity of jew elry and money stolen. An attempt was also made to enter several other houses in the neighborhood. The work was evidently done by professionals. Thefts of robes, harnesses and the like are reported every day, but the facts are carefully suppressed, except in such cases where some one in police headquarters gives the matter away on the outside.

WAS HEJOISOHED? The Death of W. C. Wheeler Creating Great Local Whispering". Every Indication of Poisoning in the Agonies of Death. What Eye Witnesses Have to Say of the Strange Affair. Apparently No Investigation Was Made, But One May Be. "I am poisoned! A doctor, quick!" A considerable portion of the Eighth ward if very much torn up over the sudden death of W. Ot Wheeler, last week, and the whisper is going busily about: "Was he poisoned?" It does not appear that any special investigation was made, and yet the death was under the most mysterious and suspicious circumstances. Mr. Wheeler was a prominent member of the Odd Fellows, and it is probable the order will, even at this late date, make a searching : investigation. It is also intimated the insurance companies are worked up over it, as Wheeler carried policies aggregating nearly 115,000. The affair has made such a stir in the vicinity of Twenty-ninth street that a Globe reporter was detailed to look the matter up, and the result of his investigations would goto snow that, while heart disease was ascribed as the cause of the death, there was every ap pearance of poisoning, and it was evi dent that Wheeler himself, while the death agony was upon him, believed he had been poisoned. It is very common to attribute sudden death to heart dis ease without much investigation, and that may have been the case in this in stance. The facts, as nearly as they can be learned, are as follows: On Friday morning Mr. Wheeler came down stairs and took a powder prescribed by Dr. Nelson for an affec tion of the eyes. Some time afternoon he suddenly declared he felt very ill and sat down in an arm chair. In this attitude a deathly sickness came over him, and he attempted to stand up; but his feet had suddenly become numb and without feeling, and he fell forward with a fearful shriek, alighting full length on his face and shrieking out: "I'm poisoned! a doctor, quick - The cry brought in several neighbors, including Owen Kinnard, who lived across the way, and Mrs. Van Leeu wen, who keeps a store on the adjoin ing corner. Mr. Kinnard raised the head of the recumbent man and an at tempt was made to give him water, but be foamed at the the sight of it and again demanded a doctor, lie attempt ed to speak and seemed very anxious to say something, but all that could be understood were the concluding words: "Do you hear?" repeated twice. Phy sicians were telephoned in every direc tion, but before any could arrive the sufferer expired in horible agony. He went into convulsions and " writhed and jerked with contortions, which are characteristic of ! strychnia poison ing. Mr. Kinnard is a strong man, but even he could do nothing toward quiet ing or soothing the dying man, until finally come one terrible convulsion which turned his face a dark-liver color and all was over. Dr. Barnum was the first doctor to arrive after death, and made a superficial examination, believ ing apoplexy to . have been the cause. Dr. Lindley also came, but said it was not appoplexy, but probably heart dis ease. No autopsy was held nor was any investigation made, but without sending the body to the morgue or without an ingest the trouble was pronounced heart disease and so certified to the health department. The body was interred with the rites of Odd Fellowship and the matter ended, except for the whis pers that have gone about the neighbor hood since. To a Globe reporter Mrs. Tan Leeuwen very freely admitted her sus picions and doubts. She is something of a physician herself, and declares the suffering and contortions of the dying man were different from any case of heart disease of which sue 'knew or heard. She thought it singular that some investigation had not been made on the powder he took when examined. Mr. Kinnard was very cautious and confined himself to giving a descrip tion of the death, which he said was terrible. "Of course lam no doctor," he said, "but 1 never heard of such spasms and contortions in connection with heart disease. His agony must have been terriole." People in the neighborhood are very reluctant to even converse on the sub ject in the presence of a reporter, but among themselves there has been very much gossip during the week and the general intimation that something ought to be done about it. SHE WAS OUTWITTED. A Brace of Dor Catchers Carry- Off Their Victim. The life of the city dog catcher is not wholly devoid of excitement. He oc casionally has any amount of fun, and if there are any bystanders present they are generally highly amused. There was one of these pleasant little affairs took place on the corner of Sev enth avenue south and Washington last evening. The first assistant dog catcher had corralled a canine owned by a wo man whose reputation is not entirely spotless, when the .woman turned on him and engaged in a rough and tumble fight after the dog had been put in the wagon. The battle was waging fiercely when the boss dog catcher slipped one of his nooses over the woman's head and started off on a run. Of course the woman fol lowed him. She had to, for the wire around her neck was somewhat tight. Meantime the first assistant dog catcher had gathered himself together and had driven away with the dog. When the woman returned to the corner, after the | boss dog catcher had removed the noose from her neck, she realized that she had been outwitted by two canine captur ers. and a wail went up from her lips which stopped a passing street car.- Order was finally restored, -but the owner of the dog swears she will make things warm for him in the sweet by aud-by.

BABB'S "RUN" FOR MAYOR. How lie "runs" down the steps as the Winston sun rises above the horizon. of almost inhuman conduct as a phy sician while attending Mrs. Payne dur ing the period of her confinement. The public prints of this city seem almost to have exhausted the rich vocabulary of Saxon scorn and abuse in dealing with Dr. Barnum. The presumption of in nocence, which even a corrupt and de generate court of law wouNl find itself obliged to regard, is not thought of, and an innocent man is held up without a hearing to the public gaze as not only a thief but as guilty of malpractice. When the press so far forgets the re sponsibility of its exalted, Influential office in civilized society as to assail the character and reputation of upright citizens upon the authority of ex parte statements made by interested persons, it prostitutes itself, ceases to exert a sanitary influence, and erects itself into a standing menace. True, our legislature, dealing with the sub ject of libel, has thrown around the press almost impregnable defenses; as said that the hot iron of calumny may be thrust into a man's character, and that the withdrawing of the instru ment of destruction shall itself heal the wound and obliterate the scar, but I ask you to put Dr. Barnum right in the com munity where he has lived so long and where he has repeatedly improvished himself to aid the sick and unfortunate. When the time comes and we stand before the proper court, the public will know tne whole truth, will appreciate the irreparable injury done Hr. Bar num. I pledge you my word for one tiling, that the blame shall rest where it belongs, and every man and every wom an, too, who has been instrumental in bringing these charges against an hon est man, whether they act and speak for themselves or for organized and alleged charitable institutions, shall an swer to Dr. Barnum to the last dollar. Yours truly, Thomas J. Lietwich, Attorney for. Dr. Barnum. TRIED TO RUN THINGS. A Blood's Experience in "Clean ing Out the Place." About 1 o'clock this morning a tall, broad-shouldered man, . pretty well "corned," to use a slang expression, ran up against a police inspector on Henne pin avenue, near Washington avenue. The man's face was all scratched up and covered with blood, while from a big cut on the top of his head the dark-red blood trickled from under his hat and dropped merrily onto the bosom of a new white shirt he was carrying. On being asked what the matter was the man said he had been held up on the steel arch bridge. Under close ques tioning he admitted that he had gone into a saloon on Bridge square and at tempted to run things. The proprietor, a young man about five feet two inches and weighing not over 125 pounds, had remonstrated, and in the struggle which followed the stranger was badly worst ed. He appeared to have no hard feel ings, however, toward the. man who had banged him up. and started for home saying he had only received what he deserved. THE SPIRIT LAKE HEROINE. The Relict of the Great Massacre Now in Minneapolis. Mrs. Abbie Gardner Sharp has re turned to the city, 1712 Linden avenue, after a summer's vacation spent at Spirit Lake, 10. It will be remembered that Mrs. Sharp figured in the Spirit Lake massacre in 1857, passing through the horrible trial of seeing her father and mother, brother and sisters butch ered by the Indians before her eyes, and herself narrowly escaping death to be held captive for several years, until through the assistance of Maj. Flan drau, of St. Paul, and other citizens, she was ransomed by the state of Min nesota. Last winter the Hon. Edmund Rice succeeded in getting a bill before tlie house to reimburse Mrs. Sharp to the amount of $2,500, for losses iv this case, but it is still pending in the sen ate. _^ POLICE COURT NOTES.

ON THE MIMIC STAGE. Comedy and Music to Reign This Week AT ALL OF THE THEATERS. "Pearl of Pekin" at the Grand, "Irish Rebel" at the People's, "Willow Copse" at the Pence. - Minneapolis is always ahead of Chi cago, and consequently gets the pro duction of the "lhe Pearl of Pekin" before the latter named city. "The Pearl of Pekin*' is • the latest -opera bouffe success and comes direct from the Bijou Opera house, New York, where it met with great favor, being presented there for over three months. "The Pearl of Pekin" is a French opera bouffe with a decided Chinese flavor and is from the pen of - Charles Byrne, with the score the production of Lecocq and Gustave - ' Kerker. The opera will be presented at the Grand for a week commencing to-morrow night with Wednesday and Saturday matinees, and with, the same metro politan cast that gave this opera its great success. The leading role of Tyfoo will be sung by Louis Harrison, and there are a bevy of beautiful and shapely cantatrices, the Misses Belle Thome, Irene Verona, Geraldine Mc- Cann, Carrie Behr, and others. The other principals are Phillip Bronsou, J. W. Herbert. A well trained chorous of forty-two assist in the ensembles. AT THE PEOPLE'S. In point of attendance the past week at the People's theater will average well with preceding weeks. This week there will be a notable deviation from the class of plays produced since the opening of tne present season. "The Irish Rebel," one of the strongest of the popular Irish comedy dramas, will be put on to-night to run all the week ex cept Wednesday night, when the stock company gives way to the convention of Republican clubs. J. C. Callahan, the clever young character actar. is to take the leading role in "The Irish Rebel." Among others J. Brown, Miss Wel lesley, Wallace Shaw, Miss Clifford, J. E. Nelson, Edwin Haskell and George Clark will appear in the cast. "The Irish Rebel" was dramatized from the fa mous patriotic poem, "Shamus O'Brien." The Northwestern Hospital associa tion will have a benefit at the People's theater Nov. 9.- AT THE PENCE. Manager Bock, of the Pence, will play in bothjthe dramas he announces for the comi«g. week. To-night, and until Thursday evening, will be presented Boucicault's popular drama, "The Wil low Copse," appearing as Luke Field-' ing, Miss Rodgers supporting as Rose. "The Willow Copse" is an exceedingly strong play, and first brought that fa mous character actor. Charles Couldock, into notice. The friends of Mr. Bock have long requested to see him in that role, and he has consented. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and mat inee "Wild Bill" will be presented, with , Mr. Bock in the title roll. ; AMUSING, ISNS IT? This is the Idea the Tribune Seems to Bava of P. B.

Now, that bread has ad vanced to seven big, round copper cents per loaf, it will be at once seen that a man with a big family to care for would have to do considerable lively hustling were he to attempt to live on bread alone, and never branch off on to meat, potatoes and other cheap articles of food. !.? The" "bread ordinance." recently passed by the city council, is hailed with delight by the big bakers and the housekeepers all over Minneapolis. The ordinance provides that each loaf of bread shall weigh a full sixteen ounces or more; that no injurious ingredients, such as ammonia or alum, shall be used in the making of the bread, and pro vides for the appointment of a bakery inspector, "whose duties shall be to in spect the various bakeries in Minneapo lis and see that such places are neat and clean, and provides for the punishment of all bakers who shall violate the ordinance, ln fact, the ordi nance sets forth certain rules which bakers must follow, and in following them produce good, wholesome bread. Heretofore it has been a lamentable fact that much of the bread sold in this city has been far below the regular weight, but each loaf was of the regular size. The methods employed in baking this bread were not the best, ana conse quently the bakers who made bread that way could far undersell the bakers who made their bread full weight and of wholesome materials. "' AN OPINION BY BEGAN! . "The Minneapolis bakers, as a rule, are in favor of this new advance," said Mr. Regan, of Regan Bros.' bakery, yesterday. "It is certainly a very good thing, inasmuch as it fixes the weight of each loaf of bread, and will do much toward preventing underhand competi tion on the part of some bakers. Before the ordinance was passed there -was no standard weight for a loaf of bread, and many of the bakers, while making their loaves as large as a loaf weighing a full pound, made them so light that they weighed scarcely half a pound. As it is' now, every baker is compelled by this ordinance to use the same; amount of material in his bread as does his neighbor, and thus make ,a loaf weigh a pound. Until quite recently, when flour went up so high" nearly all the bakers were making their loaves weigh a pound, but when the rise in flour came we were com pelled to cut down the size of the loaves in order to sell bread at the old price and come -out even. Now that the ordinance has been passed """fixinir the weight of. a loaf of bread at one pound, we are obliged to increase "the price in order to come out even. We expect that this ordinance will eventually aid the big bakers here materially, inasmuch as it will compel every baker in the city to put honest bread on the market. Then when people realize that the bread the bakers and grocers sell is as good as can be made at home, our trade will increase. The rise in the price of bread has not affected our firm either one wav or the other. We sell just, about as much as we did. before, but do not make any more money out of it, for the reason that the loaves are larger than formerly. Not many of oar customers find fault because they have to pay 7 cents for a loaf of bread, and if they do we simply s*how them that while flour was only $4.20 on Feb. 11 last, it is now $7.90 a barrel. Then we further show them that if the price of bread was increased in proportion they would have to pay 9 cents per loaf. Now. it is the claim of some of the small bakers that the big bakers are trying to freeze them out. This is simply absurd, as yon can see when I teH you that for four years past neither Lillibridge nor we have sold bread by the wholesale to the grocers. We had to stop when the quality of the bread was reduced. We would not make poor bread, and while making good bread we could not compete with the men who made light bread and cut on the price. The bread then cost from 2 to 2si cents per loaf as it was taken from the oven, and when the small deal ers, got to sell thirty loaves for $1 to the retailers we dropped it, and devoted our time to the retail trade." !v. LILLIBRIDGE CONCURS. Mr. Work, of the Lillibridge bakers, also expressed himself strongly in favor of the ordinance. "It is a very good thing," said he, "and will no doubt do much to correct the evils that have ex isted in the bread trade. Now, you can rest assured that no more alum or am monia will be used in bread to make it light and puff-like. That is the way some of the dealers made their loaves as large as our and yet, at the same time, twice as light as ours. This ordi nance will compel all the bakers to use the same amount of flour in their bread, and make each loaf weigh a pound. Of course, that brings the price of that ar ticle up considerably, but I do not think that a dozen people in the whole city will object to paying 7 cents for bread when, they become convinced that they are getting good, pure bread and a full pound. The ordinance will create a healthier feeling in the bread market, and will prevent cutting to any extent. Then tlie idea of having a bakery in spector is a good one. There are a num ber ojf j bakeries in this city which are not ap clean as they might be. I fancy that some of the people who have been buying oread made in such places would feel rather sick if they could but pay a visit to the bakeries. The ordinance is a good one, and the only trouble is that it was not passed long before. ' The price of bread, cakes, etc., is now as follows, the baker's association hav ing adop'.ed them at a recent meeting: ;V""J ».' *'?•'" Wholesale— Retail— V • ' ' Per Loaf.
