Special to the Globe.
St. Jo, Mo., March When we
woke up this morning on the palace
train bearing us toward St. Louis, Sum
ner said that we were in Missouri, be
cause the train boy had begun to sell
the life of Jesse James, and the train
men put on their revolvers. While Aye
were at breakfast a youug lady came
in, and said to llompe:
"I am a second cousin to Frank
"Ah," said he.
"Can I sell you a cartridge from one
of his pistols?"
, llompe told her very positively that
he Avas not connected with the war de
partment, and she went away. Pretty
soon in come an old man, and wanted
to sell Hauke the life of Cole Younger.
lie said he was related to Cole's grand
lather. Hanke wouldn't take the book,
because it might look extravagant when
we got back. We are very careful what
we say here about the James and
Younger boys, because every bod y seems
to be related to them.
"Be you from Minnesota?" said one
fellow to us.
We replied that we were.
"Be the boys doing well up there?'*
Diment said that they were, consider
ing that their duties kept them quite
We bad a conference after breakfast
to see how many of us were farmers,
since it was a farmers' convention we
Avere going to, and Gov. Merriam had
said that we must watch their interests.
Diment said he was powerful on farm
ing a state institution appropriation:
Hompe has got horny hands; Sumner
has a certificate from Free Lane that he
is way up in ensilage. Senator Dodge
has brought along for his credentials an
Early December Dutch head cabbage.
"We don't feel quite satisfied with this.be
cause several parties have mistaken us
for commercial travelers instead of an
agricultural show. We have had a
devil of a row among ourselves that
ought to be noticed. Us house mem
bers thought that Aye ought to
have control of the organization
of tlie delegation, so Aye de
cided to elect Diment chairman;
but the senate fellows would'nt have it,
so we've divided into two parties and
are going to act independent of one an
other. Anyway, Aye don't intend that
the Minnesota farmer shall get left.
Senatorial dignity is all right, but Aye
calculate that Diment knows more
about bulls and trusts than the whole
senate put together, and we are going
to stick by him.
We passed the following resolution ot
"Resolved. "That since the Hon. Jos
eph Capser, of Steams county, saw fit
to oppose the passage of the resolution
appropriating $1,000 for our benefit, that
he be considered a friend of economy
and reform and the enemy of ourselves
and the governor."
Hanke has prepared a speech on beef
and trusts, which is forwarded here
"Mr. Chairman: We are here in the
interests of the farmer and oiirseh'es.
The former gets soup, and Aye have a
SI, OOO appropriation. Minnesota is a
great state, and she has a great legisla
ture—great in spending more money
than the state can earn. But what are
we here for? Beef! That is my an
swer, gentlemen. We came here for
beef, and beef we must have. Did I
hear some gentleman speak of a trust?
Let the slanderer stand forth. Trusts?
We can't have a trust in Minnesota, be
cause Aye have no beef, and having no
beef, Aye came here for beef. We are
opposed to trusts, except the particular
trust which we ourselves hold upon the
state treasury for ninety days. What
is beef? Beet, gentlemen, is a cow. It
is not mutton. hat is a trust?. Gen
ntlemen, lam too full for utterance. A
trust is a .inch;' it is a soup; it is,
gentlemen, just what we have got here.
Gentlemen, the trust must not go."
We shall be in St. Louis to-night, and
then we are going to see an octoroon.
We don't know what an octoroon is,
but Hompe says he is sure it is con
nected with a trust. Forbes suggested
that we bring one back to the legisla
ture to show them Avhat a trust is, but
Sumner says it Avouldn't do, because an
octoroon is a private trust.

Ihe Local Delegation Attend to a
The Ramsey delegation held another
meeting yesterday morning on the ques

tricts ot the county. No final agree

The delegation was in session over
this all of yesterday morning, and will
meet again to-day. The difficulty, of
course, has been how to redistriet so
as to keep Democrats out and let Re
publicans in, a thing not very easy to
do considering how unsafe a basis the
vote of 1388 is to figure on. The delega
tion concede that the Fourth, Fifth and
Sixth wards Avill return a Democrat,
and that the prospects are not dismal
for two Democratic senators any way
that the redisricting may be arranged.
The delegation . Avish it announced
that the meeting called for to-night at
the Chamber of Commerce, and at
which West side citizens* were to be

regulate the employment of convicts in
the state prison at Stillwater, and to re
peal chapter one hundred and ninety
seven (197) of the General Laws of one
thousand Eight Hundred and Eighty
seven (1887). It shall be the duty of
the court in which any person shall be
convicted of any offense punishable in
the state prison, before passing the
sentence, to ascertain by the examina
tion of such convict on oath, and in
addition to such oath by such other evi
dence as can be obtained, the business,
if any, in which such convict had been
engaged prior to such arrest and con
viction; whether such - convict had
learned and practiced any mechanical
trade, and if so the nature of such
trade and length of time the same
had been followed, and the clerk of
the court shall enter the facts as ascer
tained and decided by the court on the
minutes thereof, and shall deliver a
certificate fully stating the facts so as
certained to the sheriff of the county,
who shall cause the same to be deliv
ered to the warden of the state prison at
the same time that such convict is com
mitted to said warden pursuant to his
sentence. Every person convicted of
crime and committed to the state prison
shall be regularly employed at and be
compelled to perform a reasonable
amount of hard labor in some industrial
employment; and no person so commit
ted shall be exempt from such labor
unless on account of incapacitating sick
ness or other disability rendering it im
possible that such labor be performed.
The employments of convicts m the
state prison shall in all respects be gov
erned by the provisions of this chapter,
and shall be conducted as specified in
the succeeding sections hereof. Sub
ject to the qualifications and regulations
in this chapter specified, the managers
shall be empowered and required to
provide for the employment of such
convicts in one or both of two different
systems of employment. One system
usually known as and to be designated
the "state account system," and the
other usually known as and to be des
ignated as the "contract - system." In
providing for and regulating the labor
of the convicts under these systems of
employment, the warden shall, in Class
ifying and apportioning the prisoners
to the work, in alt cases have
in view as w ell the education and ref
ormation of the individual convict as
the pecuniary welfare of the state, and
shall, by and with the . advice and ap
proval of the board of managers, have
authority to change any convict from
one class of employment to another, as
may seem proper and expedient. All
or a portion of the prison shops, and
such vacant grounds as the board of
managers deem proper, and which are
not needed to carry on industrial em
ployment under the state account sys
tem, may be leased by the board of
managers to parties from Avhom such
board obtains the highest and best
nrice, and for such length of time, not
to exceed three (3) years, as the board
may deem for the interests of the state.
The managers may, if in their judgment
they deem it proper and expedient, let
to service not to exceed one-half (} ) of
all able-bodied convicts confined in the
prison to the lessee or lessees of the
prison shops, or to any person or corpo
ration—such lease to be made in ac
cordance with the law on the subject of
prisons, including this chapter, and not
to exceed the term of three (3) years.
Such convicts shall not be leased to any
contractor or lessee for less than the
sum of 50 cents per day for actual work;
provided, that such lease shall not be a
lease of individual convicts for any
specified time, so as to preclude the
Avithdrawal of any convict and the sub
stitution in his place of another when
deemed for the best interests of the con
vict by the warden or board of managers.
Whenever the board of managers shall
deem it expedient and proper to enter
into a contract to lease the prison shops
or any portion thereof, or the prison
grounds or any portion thereof, to any
person or corporation who may desire
to rent the same and employ convicts
therein, it shall be the duty of said
board to pass a resolution to that effect,
specifying the number of convicts
whose labor and services are to be let,
the time the contract shall commence
and the length of time it shall continue,
together with the slop room, yard
room, machinery and other facilities
Avhich are to be let. Upon the passage
of such resolution the board of mana
gers shall cause tlie same, together with
a call for sealed bids or proposals,
to be published in a newspaper printed
and published in the county where the
prison is situated, and also in a news
paper printed and published at the state
capital, for a period of three (3) weeks
next preceding the time fixed in . such
notice for opening such proposal. The
warden shall receive and preserve, un
opened, all the sealed proposals for the
said leasing of said shops,*" grounds,
labor and services, which shall be de
livered to or received by him up to the
day and hour mentioned in the public
notice, and no longer, and shall there
upon, or as soon thereafter as the board
of managers shall convene, lay such
proposals before the board of managers,
who shall proceed publicly at once to
open and canvass such* of them as
shall be substantially in the form
prescribed in the published notice.
No bids shall be entertained which shall
be for less than fifty (50) cents per day
per convict for work to be performed by
the convict. The managers shall there
upon cause a written contract to be
properly executed in duplicate, and the
person or corporation to whom the con
tract is awarded snail execute to. the
board of managers a good and sufficient
bond Avith two or more sureties to be
approved by the board, conditioned for '
the lull performance of the contract on
the part of such person or corporation,
which bond shall be delivered to the
board of managers, and thereupon the
said contract shall be A-alid in law be
tween the parties thereto. And the
said board of managers shall have power
to enforce the same. Bids may be
rejected, and the board may read vertise.
In every contract made pursuant to the
authority herein conferred, there shall
be reserved to the* board of managers
and to the warden, full power and au
thority to prevent the demanding or im
position of unusual or severe labor,
whereby the health or safety of the con
victs may be impaired, or their reform
ation and education be hindered and
retarded, and the said warden-." may,
from time to time, subject to the ap
proval of the board, prescribe all need
ful rules for the government and con
duct of all contractors, their overseers
and "agents, in relation to the
convicts, and may require summary
dismissal of any individual em
ployed by any contractor in said prison,
whenever it shall appear that the pres
ence or the conduct of such individual is
prejudicial to the discipline of the
prison or the welfare of the convicts.
Proposals for lease of shops and the let
ting of convict labor may be separately
made. The rents, revenues and profits,
derived from the leasing of the prison
shops, yard room, fixtures aud convict

Senator Scheffer is receiving from all
parts of the state letters commendatory
of his drunkards' bill. This bill is now
before the house, and, among others,
Representatives 11. F. Stevens and Mor
gan have assured Senator Scheffer they j
Avill give the measure their hearty sup
port. Meanwhile, Senator Keller "states
he is being overwhelmed with letter, !
condemnatory of the bill. The real j
objection of these writers to the bill is |
that it does not define when a man is
drunk. Senator Ward says a man may j
be drunk, very drunk and gloriously !
drunk. In either of these happy con
ditions a man is liable to be hauled I
away to prison.

of emulating the patriotic spirit of the

is a horse thief and a murderer. On'

RIPE FOR THE ROPE.
Milwaukee Chinamen Likely to
Re Lynched for Assaulting Little
Girls. ; v
Mii/waukee, Wis., March 11.— Large
crowds of people gathered in the vicinity
of the municipal court this morning,
eager to see the Mongolians who are
charged Avith enticing young girls into
their laundries and ruining them. A
large police force was on hand and no
violence was attempted. The prelimi
nary examination was held this morn
ing, and nine of the victims, children
ranging in age from eight to thirteen
years, were .present. The testimony
fully confirmed the awful stories
revealed by agents of the Humane so
ciety. On cross-exam: iiatiou the first
little girl said: "Tne first time I went
there with Clara (another witness) he
pulled and pushed me. I told them 1 >
knew Chinamen A eiy well that I knew ,
Chinamen aa-ou ld kill us; they told me
they would not hurt any of us. The
second time we went the Chinamen put
us on t'.e bed and unbuttoned my
clothes; I was afraid to do anything be- ;
cause I was afraid he surely would hurt
me if 1 dared to kick him or anything.
1 never mentioned what he did because
1 wanted to get it out of my mind. At
one time 1 saw the Chinaman on the "
chair and trying to force Clara to get on' I
ton of him on tne chair; they ; were ■'
sitting face to face; he also pulled me •'
on his lap; I tried to pull away but he '•
had too strong a hold of me, 1 couldn't; '<
I was facing him and he unbuttoned my }
clothes; Aye went there to play up stairs. '
The Chinaman told us he had a nice*' -
party up stairs." The examination had '
not been concluded at the time court
adjourned this evening. The testimony
against them, however, is of the strong
est possible character and. they will un
doubtedly be held for trial. After
smashing in the -oors and windows of
a number of Chinese laundries this af
ternoon the crowd dispersed and no
further disturbance has been reported.
The feeling against the Chinese is
growing in bitterness as the enormity
of their crimes is revealed by the testi
mony in court.
Crowds of men and boys thronged
the streets in the vicinity of the Chinese
laundries to-night and smashed in seA'
eral doors and windows before the
police could arrive and disperse them.
An unlucky Celestial fell into the
hands of the mob, and he would have
fared badly but for the courage of one
policeman, who protected him until
assistance arrived. Late to-night the
crowds are dispersing and no more
trouble to-night is probable. .'>
BOLD. RUT FRUITLESS.
A. New Yorker Robs a Bank and'
; Falls Into the Clutches of the
Watertown, N. V., March 11.— One
of the boldest bank robberies that has
occurred in this section of the state in
many years surprised the people of
Norword, St. Lawrence county, Satur
day. F. L. Smith, cashier of the Nor
wood bank. Avas alone in the building
about noon, when Charles Phelps, the
postoffice clerk entered and asked for
some stamps. Mr. Smith stepped into
the vault to get them, when Phelps
quietly closed the door and turned the
combination, locking the cashier in.
The robber then turned to the money'
drawer and took all the paper money
that it contained— .27B— leaving several
hundred dollars in silver. The amount
would ordinarily have been much
larger on Saturday, but business had
been light that da}-, and the robber's
booty was probably not nearly as large
as he had expected it to be. Phelps had
made arrangements to have a horse
ready, and with it he started at once for
the Canadian border, about fifteen
miles distant. Meanwhile a customer
entered the bank, and saw what had
happened. He heard the cashier call
ing to. him from the vault, and being' *
instructed as to the combination, re
leased him. Prompt action Was taken
to prevent Phelps crossing the border,- '
but nothing was heard of the robber
until the midnight train arrived, and lie.
Avas discovered as one of the passengers. '
He had gone by a circuitous route to
Brasher Falls and had taken the ' '•
train there, hoping to ride through "
Norwood at night without being '
detected and then go on to Ogdensburg,- ;
where he could easily cross into Canada.
But parties on the train, who knew
him. had learned of the - robbery, and
upon arriving at Norwood he was de- I
livered over to officers. Only about §11 .
of the amount stolen was found on t
Phelps' person. He was kept in charge "
of two officers over Sunday and was '
taken to Canton jail to-day to await the
action of the grand jury, Which meets
in June. Phelps is a young man, a
native of Norwood. He has fallen into
bad habits of late and is said to have
become an opium eater.
