SAINT PAUL. BOOMING A HlillkVAKl). Another Industry Conducted by Capitalists of St. Paul. .Representative business men of the Twin Cities were passengers on the special train over the Wisconsin Cen tral Saturday morning. Messrs. E. J. Frost and W. 11. Patterson, of the brick company: C. E. Robb. city ticket agent, and M. P. Bambv, commercial agent of the Wisconsin Central, formed a quartette to look after the welfare of the guests. Those who made the trip comprised Houston & Hawes. Minne apolis dealers in builders' supplies; J.B. Tarbox, Richard Gordon, 11. 1. Rugg. William L.Carson, John Ses sions, Morgan, Brooks, Supt. Ellison, of the gas company; John llemlein.

Moran, John Bell. E. J. Kirkland J. S. llonali and A. F. Ganger. The ob jective point was the yards of the Min nesota Brick company, seventy-two miles from St. Paul, over the state line, and three miles from Wheeler, Dunn county, Wis., and the party was made up of business men, dealers in builders' supplies and contractors, who were anxious to deter mine the magnitude of the brick plant and its relative importance as a tribu tary recourse to st. Paul. The company was organized Feb. 5. with E. I. Frost as president, W. H. Patterson as secre tary, treasurer ana general manager, and W. E. Kindred, superintendent, well backed and prepared to stay in the field and figure as one of St. Paul's leading institutions. The members are all young men with plenty ot energy ; and push and the ability to "make a winner." More than all they have made their greatest hit in starting out right, which is everything. m PREPARE TO REGISTER. Requirements to Be Deserved Before Votes Are Deposited. SEVEN BALLOT BOXES USED. Dates Upon Which the Boards of Regis tration Will Hold Their Sessions and .Questions to Be Considered. On the Gth of November all who are entitled to do so will be permitted to exercise their right of suffrage. With this end in view it behooves all good Democrats to see to it that not only j their immediate family, but friends, neighbors and acquaintances take the preliminary and necessary step of duly registering before the right of suffrage, the crowing glory of citizenship, can be granted. The provisions of the election law passed by the last legislature are too well known to need recapitulation. But there are special provisions which re late to cities of upwards of 12,000 inhab itants, and from the carefully compiled data in the city clerk's office voters will readily understand that it is absolutely necessary to register in order to help swell the DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY IN NOVEMBER. The judges and clerks of election, who constitute a board of registration for iheir respective districts, will meet Tues day, Oct. Id, according to the provis ions of the law. three weeks before the general election. The board will be in session from 9 a. m. until 7 p. m., and will make a registration of all persons entitled to vote at the ensuing election iv the district over which the board holds jurisdiction. Two register* of voters must be made, upon which are entered the names of all persons resid ing In the election district whose names appeared in the poll-lists of the preced ing election as having voted thereat, except such as have died, removed from the district or become disqualified. In addition to the names upon the poll-list the board must enter the names of all persons who personally appear before them for registration. Each applicant before he is officially registered is re quired to take an iron-clad oath as to the truth of his statements touching his place of residence, name, birthplace, qualifications as an elector and right to register and vote under the laws of the state. The name of each person, to gether with his answers and several questions which are propounded, are then entered in appropriate columns in the registry books, which are carefully ruled to . PREVENT FRAUD OR DECEPTION. At the end of each day's registry the books are carefully compared. The judges of election sign their names at the end of the list on every page, so that no new name can be added with out discovery, and they, also sign and attach to each register a certificate in which is stated the number of the reg istered* and , qualified voters. The registry hooks must then be deposited before 10 o'clock of the following day with the city clerk for safe keeping. Tuesday. Oct. -.':'. two weeks prior to election day. the board of registration will meet again for the purpose of registering all qualified voters whose names have not been registered and who apply in person for that purpose. The same registers in service on the preceding day of registration are used, and at the end of the day the books will once more be returned to the city hall. The clerks of election during the day are required to make a copy of all the names upon the registers,. together with the addresses. This copy must then be conspicuously posted up outside of the place of registration, together with a notice of the time when the board will meet for the completion and final cor rection of its registers, and the copy will be accessible to any elector. Tuesday, Oct. 30, one week previous to the election, the board will be in ses sion for the last time, and any person who has not already been enrolled may apply and become qualified. The polls will, however, be open from noon until 9 o'clock in the evening, It is the duty of the board upon this occasion to erase from the lists the name of any person who shall be proved on the oath of two qualified electors of the district, to the satisfaction of the board, to be disquali fied TO VOTE IN THE DISTRICT. At the close of the session the regis ters are again compared before being deposited with the city clerk. Before the final adjournment the board pre pares a copy of all names and their re spective addresses and posts them con spicuously. Applicants for registration who have lived in other districts must procure a certificate of removal, by affidavit, in order to become qualified. If a removal from one place to another in the same district is made the vote will not be re ceived, unless by the person giving no tice, so that the" registers may be changed accordingly. At the coming --lection there will be seven ballot boxes for the respective candidates for presidential electors, state officers, congress, legislature, ju diciary, county, and the vote upon the constitutional amendments regarding freedom ot markets, protection of the vorkingineu's rights, and the amend ment concerning the number of days of a legislative session. — ♦ PERSONALS.

Discourse. It Will Not Be a Walk-Over in Mr. Elmquist's Dis- 'O. trict -".^; Campaign Chatter on Various Topics Interesting to Am bitious Politicians. '•'•■ • _ Hon. Solon Chase, the well-known farmer-politician of Maine, whose name is so often coupled with "them steers, " : was a conspicuous figure in the lobby of the Kyan yesterday; not, perhaps, ; from the fact that he was generally known as the keen, witty Yankee "Greenback" orator of whom so much was heard several years ago, as from j the peculiarities of his dress— plain j ••store*' clothes, cow-hide boots, an , old and battered broad-brimmed white felt hat, and the "utter absence of cuffs, cravat, or any articles of personal adornment marked him as just what he claims to be, a plain Yankee farmer, * • He' is now in the service of the national Republican central committee, and is In Minnesota in accordance with - their orders after having filled a week's engagement in each of the states of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wis consin. His dates in Minnesota are as follows: Montevideo, Oct. 15; Bird Island, Oct. 10; Gleneoe. Oct. 17; ! Shakopee, Oct. IS; St. Peter, Oct. 19; Waseca, Oct. 30. This year he is a Republican, and, being in the employ of the party man agers, is sanguine of Republican suc cess in all the doubtful states, and con sequently on the general result. Speak ing of political matters, he said: "Down \ in my section of the country,"' he said ! to a representative of the GLOBE, "there is only one issue, that of the tariff. While some half dozen third parties may cut some figure in changing the general result, they might as well give up their job, for they're barking up a j tree that there ain't any coon in. This country can't settle but one question at i a time; son we'll take the tariff question this time and settle it FOR THE NEXT FIFTY YEARS. Then we'll do something else. Down in my state there's the fisheries ques- I tion." which we want to settle pretty soon. We're going to fish and go over to Canada to dig worms and buy bait, it we have to annex the whole country; but, as I said, we'll settle the tariff first and then tackle the fisheries, the cur rency and those other questions one at a time. "How about the origin of 'them' steers?" In the fall of '75 I was running for congress, and in making a speech at Lewiston I wanted to use a pointed ob- j ject lesson illustrating the effect of the contraction of our greenback currency. 1 told the people that 1 had just bought a pair of three-year-old steers and paid SIOO for them, and that after keening them steers a year and feeding them right along, no mattei how much they ; grew, they would still be worth only | MOO, owing to the contraction of the currency. Ex-Gov. Dingly, who is now in congress, was then running the j Lewiston Journal, and because he could't attack my argument he lit on to j my grammar, and said 1 used the term ! 'them steers' fifty or sixty times. And j the Republicans went for me about ! .'them steers.' When the election came around the next year I just yoked up those steers ami went around through the district with them, and everywhere I went I showed them that I hud been right about the con traction of the currency aud the value of the steers. Then the question came up. Where was the hay I'd been feed ing them? Well. I showed them that the bondholders had .got it, and the effect was that them' steers increased our vote from 5,000 in 1875 to 40,000 in IS7G." * . . NAMED A CANDIDATE. Fred W. Bott Will Dun Against J. G. Elmquist. The Democratic county convention failed to nominate legislative candi dates from the Second district of the Twenty-sixth senatorial district, and j from the First and Second districts of the Seventh-seventh senatorial district. ! To the county committee was delegated the duty of placing candidates in I the field from these districts, ■ and the committee in Us initial effort In j that direction has made a strong nor- ' ination. At the meeting Saturday night Fred W. Bott, of the engraving firm of Borland] & Bott, was nominated ! from the old Fifth ward, now known | as the Second district of the Twenty- ' seventh senatorial district. In oppo- j sition to J.G. Elmquist, the Republican nominee. The former is a German and represents the labor element of the party, and the Republican friends of Elmquist, who fancied that their nomi nee would secure his seat by default, will realize that the Democracy have placed In the field a man who is capa- Die of making an unususally strong canvass, and will be able to control both the German and the labor voters at the coming election. A delegation from the ward also waited upon the committee and pre sented the names of L. A. "Soruiaudin and Eugene Hendrickson for favorable consideration. No action was, however, taken in the premises. At the. next committee meeting, however, it is prob- I able that candidates from the two re- I maining districts will be named and the county ticket thereby completed. CONVICT "LABOR SYSTEMS; Results of the Investigations of Trades' Assemblies. As a result of the deliberations be tween the Minneapolis and St. Paul Trades and Labor assemblies, in regard to the convict labor question, the com mittee appointed at the joint conference have submitted a report in which- 'they - set forth that last July, upon making a visit to Stillwater, they learned that ar rangements had been made for tempo ral v employment until the next session " of the legislature, but no steps had been taken to provide permanent employment. At a subsequent meeting with state officials in the governor's office, after knotty points of law pend ing upon their subject had been cleared up by the attorney general, those inter ested unanimously decided that prisoners should be employed at pro ductive labor, which will come into com petition with free labor but slightly, and at the same time secure the reform ation of criminals. There are now in operation in this coun try the lease, contract, piece-price, public account with power machinery, and public account with hand labor sys tems. The lease system being the most vicious, while the contract system is tlie most prevalent. From a financial standpoint this system is conceded to be next to the lease plan, but in its profita bleness to the state aud unsatisfactory reformatory results. The piece-price plan beinga>mondification -of the con tract system i but shifts the evil. The public account system is claimed to be ideal in its results, and from a financial' standpoint this system with* power machinery is highly remunerative to the state. -..".- •'--;•""■•>,"■"•' I'l OThe public account- system - under hand labor, is, however, deemed the best from every point of view. By this method every prisoner may have an op portunity of learning a trade, or of working at one. Competition with free labor is reduced to a niinniniuin, and THE FAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MCKDAY MORNING; OCTOBER 15, 1883. the reformation of convicts Is an as sured success.- Messrs. Lord and Wright, and other eminent authorities who have made the question a study, declare this plan to he superior to all others, and the committee - believes it would also benefit the state immeasur ably by making men of criminals. THE LAST KITES. * The Remains of Howard H. Cleve land to Be Buried To-Day. The funeral services of the late Howard 11. Cleveland, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Cleveland," will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the First Baptist church of St. Paul, of which he was a leading member. Rev. Dr. Mabie, late pastor of the church, but now of Minneapolis, will officiate. The Ramsey county bar will attend in a body. Aside from the bereavement suffered by those near and dear to Mr. Cleveland, his death falls heavi est upon the profession to which he belonged and to which his life had been devoted with remarkable perti nacity and success. The law was to him an almost sacred calling, and he came to it with the same purity of pur pose and action as characterized him in private life. He field the confidence of his associates and the old and honored chiefs of the law as few young lawyers iv St. Paul have ever succeeded in do ing. Death came to him as a voice in the night, unwarned.- He faced it as courageously as be had lived— dying true to the faith of all the years in which he had been earning rich promise for the future. : ; .V.

St. Luke's Chapel Formally Dedicated to Sacred Services. BISHOP GRACE OFFICIATES. Number Nineteen in the List of Catholic Churches— Father O'Gorman's Elo quent Sermon. The pretty little Catholic chapel, cor ncr Summit avenue and Victoria street, was dedicated yesterday before a large* concourse of spectators. The new church, which is to he called St. Luke's, is the nineteenth church dedicated in this city the others, in the order of their building, being: St. Paul's church, Old Cathedral, New Cathedral, Old German church. New German church (Assump tion), St. Mary's, St. Louis (French), St. Michael's, St. Stanislaus (Bohemian), St. Joseph's, St. Adelbert's (Polish), Church of Sacred Heart, St. Francis "de Sales, St. Patrick's St. John's, St. Matthew's, St. Ayre's and St. James. St. Luke's chapel is a frame building, Gothic in style and capable of accom modating a congregation of about £00. Surmounting the gable is a bell tower upon which is a wooden cross that can be seen a mile distant. The building is dark brown in color and lighted by a number of large windows contain ing yellow and pink stained glass. There are four rows of pews, ma hogany finished. The sanctuary, the floor of which, is neatly carpeted, occu pies a niche in the rear of the Church. The altar is plain, and becoming the little chapel it adorns. The decorations yesterday consisted of a profusion of nattttal flowers and plants of various kinds which were placed about the al tar and on each side of the entrance to the sanctuary. The choir did good work, considering it was the first time its members had sung together, and the solo numbers were well rendered by .lames Shea. Miss Schonarth and Miss Frances Smith. The new church fills- a much-needed want, as the people living in the hill section of the city have heretofore been obliged to go to the Cathedral or St. Jo seph's to attend service, lt occupies a portion of the site upon which Arch bishop Ireland intends Bstecmra a orahd CATIIKDUAL. High mass will be celebrated in St. Luke's every Sunday at 10:30, and Rev. J. J. Lawler will probably be the pastor. The dedicatory ceremonies began promptly at 10:30, the opening exercises being held outside the church. Bishop ('race officiated, assisted by Revs. O'Uorinan. Lawler, Cestelli. Trainor and Coudron in the robes of their sacred offices. After making a circuit of the , church the procession entered the church, where the litany eof the saints was chanted. The procession then passed around the interior of the church, the clergy chanting the prayers of dedication as they went. ■?} High mass was celebrated, Rev. J. J. Lawler being celebrant. Father Cestelli deacon, Rev. J. Trainor subdeacon, Rev. S. Condron master of ceremonies and Father O'Gorinan assistant deacon and attendant at the throne. The ushers were William Cunningham and .lames Kavanagh. Prominent among those in at tendance were: William Louis Kelly, P. T. Kavanagh and wife. John W. Willis and wife, P. F. Egan and wife, C. J. McCarthy and wife, Micheal Mealey and wife, P. V. Dwyer, Thomas Fitzpatrick. Timothy Reardon, James King, A. D. McLeod and C. W. Copley. The sermon was preached by Rev. -Thomas O'Gorinan, of St. Thomas' seminary, who took his text from the First Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinth ians, iii., 16, -'Know ye not that you are temples of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you." •'This beautiful chapel," said he, "the promise and forerunner, as we hope, Of a more magnificent structure, worthy of this metropolitan city, has been this morning drafted into the service of re ligion, with prayers and songs and blessings. It has been set aside from other buildings, redeemed from pro-, fane uses and fitted for the service of the King of Glory. ••I have sanctified this house which thou hast built,"' said God to Solomon, on the occasion of the completion of the great temple, "to put My eyes there forever, and My eyes and My heart shall dwell in thee forever." If these words were true of the old temple of Jesus, they are truer of this little chapel, lt was but the symbol of this and ITS SAOKIFICES MERELY FIGURATIVE. Here, however, is offered not only a victim to Cod. hut God as the victim. Here is the grotto of Bethlehem in which God was born, the house of Naz areth in which He dwelt; the upper room where He found His diciples, the Calvary on which He expired and the tomb in which He slept. It is the pres ence of Christ which gives to the churches the sacredness they possess. Other sacraments are administered and the church is the house of prayer, the bark from which Christ teaches His di ciples, yet its chief glory is this: that it contains Christ really and truly present. The whole natural being runs toward and centers in the sanctuary which is sanctified in the altar.which is, in turn, sanctified in the tabernacle which riv ets the eye and heart, because there is the dwelling of Him whose presence tills the building with . - LIGHT. BEAUTY, DIGNITY AXD AWE. On this point St. Paul makes two as sertions. First— "Know ye not that v in are temples of God; be you as liv ing stones built up as a house?" Sec ond— "In that tenmle there dwells the Spirit of God." The Spirit of God is the Holy Ghost. I draw immediately this . conclusion: As the material - church derives its sanctity from the in dwelling of our Lord, so the spiritual temple draws whatever of beauty and life it has from the indwelling of the Spirit of God. When Christ- founded His church on Peter, and purified it in His own blood, there was yet needed something to complete the work that some divine person would, take posses sion of the building. On the day of Pentteost the first church was dedicated, when the Holy Ghost in the form of . : A TONUUi: OF FIHE, descended on the, apostles, who rushed from the little room they occupied and began the work that has been contin ued until this day. The Divine Spirit then that fills our temples is the Holy Ghost. This is so momentous a truth that St. Paul, wishing to impress it strongly on our minds makes this strik ing comparison: "The Chinch of Christ is a body of which we are the. members;*' the church is the head and the Holy Ghost the soul. That which the soul does in the body of man, that, does the Holy; Ghost do in the church. . ,-, .The source and standard of religion is each. one's private judgment. Re ligion remains a merely human con trivance. Men of the same, or no opinion meet and form a religious body. Opin-. ions and tastes may change and conse quently , the choice of religion will change. These are human institutions^, voluntary associations, religious clubs.: Whatever life they have they derive ? from their members; whatever of prom- , inence they possess depends on the whims of their members. They have a human origin, life and end, and they change, decay and . die. Not so the religion of Christ. Though made up of. men it depends on souls for existence, not on members. It is not the members who give life to it hut the soul, aud this is the reason the church 'is not of human origin. The church of God. to those without ' its realm, is like the sphinx in the desert. There she is, and being there, she stares them into hope less wonder at her marvellous growth and power. MANY REFORMS PROPOSED. Women and Men Banded Against Intemperance and the Social Evil. .:;"•■" v- ;.v.'.' - • A meeting was held at the Gospel Temperance rooms at TO East Seventh street yesterday afternoon, in accord ance with the request of the World's and National Women's Christian Tem perance unions that the day be gener ally observed as one of prayer for the success of these organizations. The meeting was presided over by Mrs. A. 1). Condit, who gay.* a brief history of the National and World's W. C. T. U. The latter body, she stated, was or ganized about "two years ago. and is beginning the third ear of its existence with bright prospects for the accom plishment of much good throughout the world.

Willard, of Illinois, is now president of the union, which has at present a missionary at work in the heathen lands aud four district organiz ers. The speaker importuned all mem bers and friends of the union to wear the white ribbon, as a token of giving ■ moral support to the ultimate attain ment of the reforms which they have undertaken. An earnest appeal was made to the men present to vote ever for the right, that laws might be enacted by which the liquor traffic would be, suppresed; that tne houses of ill-fame., in all the great cities might he closed and the socal evil checked; that just wage laws might be enacted by which 5 homeless women would receive a' reasonable compensation for their labors; and not be driven from want to a life of shame.

Miss Anna Ilobeits presided at the organ. CUT OFF BOTH LEGS. An Old Citizen Fatally Injured by a Train. Patrick McGorry, a machinist re siding at 557 St. Peter street, was run down by a Duluth train near the •Seventh street bridge, last evening while returning from work, both legs being cut off below the knees. . The patrol wagon was called and he was taken at once to the city hospital, where lie was made as comfortable as possible. The doctor had slight hopes that he would live over night. The injured man was one ..of St. Paul's oldest citizens, having lived here for the past thirty years. Olympic* I'heater.

Some Inaccurate Views Held as to the Effect of Flax on the Land. - The impression is quite common that flax exhausts the soil upon which it is grown, particularly newly broken grounds. It is noticed that- wheat fol lowing flax shows a falling off from that on neighboring lands not put in flax. It is claimed, however, that experiments show that any kind of crop, whether of sod com, turnips, beans, etc., will so affect newly broken land, that it will be quite as noticeable in the succeeding crop of small grain as it is in the case where flax has been raised. The effect of crops sown upon spring breaking is accounted for by some in this manner: Breaking is usually done quite shallow, and there are only a couple of inches of nutritive soil at best for- the first crop; when any kind of crops are grown upon it the same year it is broken the soil is so exhausted that there is not nutrition-enough left to ma ture the usual crop of small grain the second year. Many good farmers hold that wheat succeeding flax upon old ground will give a much better yield than otherwise. -♦ Many very large yields of potatoes are reported this year. From 300 to 400 bushels per acre are reported frequently, In some localities they are sold to starch factories. f) EMIL I JEWELER, 11 P I QT 1 85 E - third » W L I 0 1 1 1 st. PAUJE* T.
