- The Bostonian opera company is tak
ing a week's rest, and H. C. Barnabee,
the veteran comedian, took a run up to
Minneapolis to assist the Cecilian
quartette in their concert at the Hen
nepin Avenue theater last evening.
Mr. Barnabee has never been seen here
as a concert singer before, but the roll
is not a new one to him. "In coming
before the Minne
apolis public as a
said Mr. Barna
bee, "I am only re
turning to my "first
love. "I was a
tainer long before
I dreamed of going
on the stage. In
fact, it was only
in 1887 that I made
a professional de
but. My folks
lived at Ports
mouth. N. H., and

praise God, hard-working New England
character. I attended 'singin' skule'
and thought I discovered, though 1 have
seen criticisms since that indicated it
was a mistake, 1 had some voice.
Together with three others I formed a
quartette for offensive and defensive
purposes. But my parents had more
peaceful views of a career for me. They
ruthlessly tore me from the arms, as it
were, of the New Hampshire public and
imprisoned me in
a dry goods store.
My nights after
that were full of
melody, while my
days were a sym
phony in calico
and merino. But
the spirit of the
old masters could
not be downed, for
I beat time with
yard stick and
breathed out my soul in an impassioned
aria to the dressmaker's dummy. I
went to Boston, entered a large dry
goods establishment, and for twelve
years led an existence that was distaste
ful to me, all the while warbling a
little, you understand, and making
my neighborhood a good one to
move away from. In the Mercan
tile Library association, then the
first literary society in Boston 1
found a vent for those soulful feelings
that would not emerge through contem
plation of a bolt of gingham. Don't
think I became a public singer, or
comedian. No. I was a serious young
man. My performances for the associ
ation were elocutionary. I used to re
cite Marco Bozzaris, Poe's Raven and
other cheerful bits of verse. It was by
accident 1 discovered my comic vein.
The regular comedian left the enter
tainment one day in a huff, and 1 was
shoved forward to take his place. In
anyt lung but a
funny state of
mind 1 rushed on,

had the Maine
fine, having lived
on the bor
ders almost of
fhe state. The piece, which was a
composition of John G. Whittier's
brother, one of the noted political
satirists of the day. made a great
hit, and 1 found myself a
funny man. From that hour the dry
goods shop became more and more un
endurable, and 1 gave it up to take pro
fessional engagements. The first time
I appeared in a dramatic entertainment
was in 1869 at the benefit of a Boston
actor. I played Toby Twinkle in "All
That Glitters Is Not
Gold;" sung Simon,
the Cellarer, and
with William War
ren in "Box and
Cox." But it was
not for eight years
more that 1 went on
the stage, and that
was when "Pina
fore" was first pro
duced in this couu-
try, and the Boston Ideals were gath
ered together. The history of that or
ganization, and how it was fostered by
Miss Ober. and Fostered after she left
it, is familiar to the public."
The veteran comedian whose sallies
of wit and insinuating humor have kept
the country roaring for years, looks as
hearty as a man of twenty less years
than himself. He is just" as uncon
scious, too, as he ever was how it is he
pleases people. "I have heard actors,"
he remarked, "describe how they pro

could tell how I did things. I am en

to-day seem to mean
more to them than
on any other day of
the year, and, of
course, the reason
is because it is Eas
ter day. A strange
happen chance— or
it might not have
been a happen
c h a n c c— brought
Easter at just the
right time of the year for flowers to
hold so high a place in the ceremonies
of its observances.
Minneapolis has been growing more
and more into the use of flowers on
Easter lor several years past. In fact,
Easter is growing more nearly to uni
versal observance. There are four
principal dealers in the products of the
greenhouse in the city, and it is the uni
versal testimony that this week they
have made larger sales than during Holy
week of any previous year.
A Nicollet avenue firm which is a
branch of a Chicago firm, was visited
yesterday by a reporter to investigate
the flower question. In regard to church
decoration the information was that in
Chicago many churches spent as high as
$300 or $400. but that in Minneapolis
the amount expended did not run so
high, though there was a considerable
money spent in some of our churches
for flowers during the past week.
('alia lilies are still the favorite church
flowers yet, though the Bermuda
are often preferred, and are a rival of
much importance, being known as the
Easter lily. The candidem is another
member of the family that is much used
in Easter decorations. A prominent
Minneapolis dealer says, however, that
in the East lilies are used hardly at all
in the churches, and white roses are
taking their place. But in Minneapolis
lilies are yet in great demand. At 6
o'clock last night it was almost impossi
ble to obtain flowers of any kind, es
pecially lilies. One dealer had sold over
three hundred calla lilies; another,
over five hundred; and probably in the
city not less than two thousand, at the
least, were sold for Easter decorations.
The callas sell at from four to five dol
lars a dozen. The Easter lilies, which
cost only about half that amount, have
been sold in much larger quantities,
probably not less than five thousaud
being sold in all. White roses, daisies,
white tulips, in fact, all white flowers,
have been sold in large quantities.
"Do many people here decorate their
homes for Easter?" was asked at the
Mendenhall up-town department.
'•Weil, not a great number. Some do,
but the majority buy the cut flowers, or
the plants, take them to their church,
and when the day is done take them
home. We have had numerous orders
from the Sunday schools. One man
bought all those for his class." pointing
to a flower stand laden down with the
most beautiful flowers, most of them in
pots, "and its quite a costly gift, too.

BARNABEE FEELS CUT.
His Picture in a Morning Paper
Brings Tears to His Eyes.
The Cecilian quartette had a good
programme but a small audience at its
concert at the Hennepin Avenue thea
ter. The smallness of the house led
Mr. Barnabee, on his appearance, to
indulge Jin a witty speech, in which
he mildly roasted a morning paper for
the unkind cut it had given him in its
yesterday's issue. "That was the hard
est cut 1 ever got," remarked Mr.
Barnabee. "It was enough to make
people cut and run from this enter
tainment, which seems to have
been the effect." The Bostonian
then turned his attention to the piano
and sang the "Three Fishers" in a man
ner that could have been improved
upon, and followed it up with "The
Cork Leg"- in a style that could
hardly have been bettered. The
applause was very loud, and
When Mr. Barnabee reappeared
he explained that the" agents of the
piano, used on the stage, were doing
their work. An imitation of a dude, a
Frenchman and Yankee reciting
Richard's soliloquy . followed. At the
close of the programme Mr. Barnabee
sang "Tompkin's Silver "Wedding."
The quartette, Messrs. Heath, Stuart,
Loye and Eichmon, acquitted themselves
creditably in their numbers.

WILL BE REMEMBERED
The Week in 1889 When
. Street Cars Did Not
I . Run.
The Absence of Familiar
Scenes and Incidents of
The Inconvenience and Bene
fits of Having to Walk
The Weird Transformation
at First Avenue
Life in Minneapolis has been practic
ally reconstructed during the past week
by means of the street car strike. The
Flour City contains fifty-three square
miles, and people living on the out
skirts have had a nice little walk of
over three miles to the business center.
Heads of families have been compelled
to rise at unseasonable hours mornings,
and supper has been postponed to a late
hour in the evening to be followed by
immediate retirement that rest suf
ficient might be gained to enable
the victim to get up early enough
the next day to reach his business place
before noon. Clerks at stores have been
late and school children tardy. The
practice of making social calls has been
abandoned, lecturers have addressed
empty benches, and the theaters have
suffered severely. The small store
dealer on the outskirts has not felt the
competition with the large concerns
to be so strong, and a great many men
have stayed at home from force of cir
cumstances, and have made the ac
quaintance of their families.
STANDING ROOM ONLY.
The early morning excursions insti
tuted by the fair sex were abandoned
and the ordeal of entering a car full of
men who exhibit a sudden and intense
interest in their newspapers, has been
foregone. The riding to and from down
town has been in express wagons, drawn
by cadaverous horses, furniture vans
and even drays, and ten cents has been
the fare, while the lines have run only
on leading thoroughfares, necessitating
long walks on cross streets.
The man who has made it a practice
to wait until the street car has had a
block the start of him, has missed his
SPRINTING FOR EXERCISE.
Instead, he has a long walk rather
than a rapid run of a short distance, to
settle his dinner for him. Many people
have learned to walk, and those who
do not live too far have perhaps found
that the exercise is far from disagree
able, and certainly beneficial.
And the motor— the clang of its gong
for over a week was not heard on First
avenue south— and its terminus, near
Washington avenue, had begun to re
semble a street instead of a railroad
yard. There were no crowded cars at 6
o'clock, and people living in that locality
had missed a portion of the entertain
ment which made life in that vicinity
endurable by watching the efforts made
to catch the trains, the scramble for
seats, and the general bustle that the
arrival and departure of the smoky,
puffing little dummy engine with its
A FAMILIAR SIGHT.
There were visions of fat men des
perately trying to hold on to crowded
open air cars, and excited elderly fe
males making frantic efforts to attract
the engineer or conductor's attention
by falsetto shrieks.
The street car strike has taught
many lessons, and will not soon be for
gotten, and the recollections of the
week in ISB9 when the street cars did
not run will not be readily effaced from
the minds of suburban" residents, at
MANY MINOR MATTERS.
Various Things That Came Be-
fore the Park Board.
When the park board came to order
yesterday Clerk Nye read a communi
cation from Jerry McCarthy, who lives
hear the Moulton tract in Northeast
Minneapolis, asking the privilege of
caring for the ground during the season
for what hay, etc., he could get off the
land. The secretary was instructed to
make such a contract with him, provid
ing, however, that ' it was not to inter
fere with any improvements the board
might wish to make.
Two bids for refreshment and photo
graphic privileges at Minnehaha were
referred to the committee on. shore
rights and privileges. Attorney Bock-'
wood reported that a lot in Souteas-"'
Minneapolis owned by the board ' had
been sold for the '.1885 taxes and the
board instructed the finance committee
to take measures to redeem it.
The special committee consisting of
the committee on designation --of
grounds with commissioners Mitchel,
Allen and Haugan added, having -in
charge the matters of. designating
ground around Powderhorn lake for
park purposes reported that they had
made a personal inspection of the
grounds and had also met the owners of
the surrounding property and
found the most of them very
unreasonable in their demands regard
ing price. So much so, in fact, that
they deemed it best to obtain the lands
by usual condemnation proceedings,
feeling satisfied that the commissioners
would award the property owners very*
much less than they asked for the land.
They therefore recommended that the
land, about forty acres in extent, in
cluding the lake, be designaed for park
purposes and condemned at a cost not
to exceed 530,000.
Commissioner Marsh said he favored
the scheme of a park in that vicinity,
but would like to avoid further issu
ance of bonds if the land could be ob
tained in any other way.
Commissioner Boardman further ex
plained the facts in the case as above
cited, and on motion the report was re
ferred to the committee on designation
On recommendation of the committee
on police., Superintendent of Parks
Berry was placed in charge of the park
police, and the following applicants
were appointed on the force: John
Wright, Nelson Beaudet, A. A. San
ford, Martin Olson, John L. Eklund and
George C. Wright. On motion of Coun
cilman Babb the pay of foot patrolmen
was fixed at $66 per month, and that of
mounted men at $S5.
The committee on shore rights and
privileges thought it would establish a
dangerous precedent to allow the ad
ventists to use park lands at Minnehaha
for camp meeting purposes, and the pe
tition was denied. On their recom
mendation the Crescent club was given
permission to erect a bath house at Lake
Calhoun, subject to the approval of the

A High Record for Divorce Sat-
The divorce case of Adele Powers
against William Powers came up yester
day under Judge Hicks, was tried and
submitted. The complaint of the wife
is that William married Lena Byers last
September, and has lived with her in

when, she claims, he deserted her, and
she has not heard of him since.

A P. P. Libel Suit.
The case of Albert Knit tie against
the Pioneer Press company, was before
Judge Hicks again yesterday on the
special term calendar, on a demurrer to
the reply. The basis of the complaint
was that the proceedings of the board of
lire commissioners of St. Paul, where
the words claimed to be libelous were
used by Dan Lawler, were of a quasi
judicial nature, and that no action for
libel could be maintained for Drifting a
report of what went on there. Judge

,•''l. 7. SAMPLE ROUNDERS.
There are in this, as in every other
large city, a certain class of men who
are little seen by day, and who live by
the maxim that "The world begins to
move when the sun goes down."
They are rarely seen before
the middle of the afternoon
when they walk down the avenue in
pairs or knots of three and four, or
stand on the corners and discuss city
liolitics, the policy of the police and the
atest sensational news, or sit in the
hotel lobbies smokins and talking or
possibly reading. They disappear a
little while about 6:30 and no one seems
to know where they eat. but they show
jap again soon after dark and stand
around the saloons and billiard rooms
until the "wee sma hours ayont the
twa." They can scarcely be denomi
nated a class either, for they are
MADE UP OF SEVERAL CLASSES.
_*„■ First and foremost comes the festive
and smoothly attired knight of the
green cloth, who turns an honest dollar
by * 'sfttnnh-g a- sucker"- whenever one
can be baited, and at other times gathers
.in such shekels as. he may by processes
so mysterious that even" he himself
would find it difficult to explain— before
a grand jury. Next is the nervous,
broken old man, whose whole frame is
; an embodied - temperance lecture,
and who has got to that point
where he can't sleep until he-has drank
the long night away. Then there is the
■plug ugly, the natural-born and edu
cated thief, whose whole influence in
the world is for the perpetuation of ac
quired kleptomania. He hangs around
the lower dives and buys an occasional
drink of poor whisky while waiting to
spot a victim. One more prominent
figure in the procession of nieht-hawks
: is the young-man-not-afraid-of-a-cock-
tail who is out to make a night of it.
His father is probably a successful mer
chant or lawyer, and he is spending
with a princely contempt for expense
the kopeck that his father has heaped
'up by a Puritanical disregard for the
foibles and follies of the world.
. All these gather in the barroom early
in the evening or drop in after the
theater, and are joined at about the la_
ter time by
THE SHABBY-GENTEEL CITIZEN,
who has somehow obtained possession
of the price of a drink. He comes in
timidly, buys his glass of whisky and
drinks it slowly, as if to get all the en
joyment there is in it. and then stands
around looking greedily at the crowd of
drinkers and waiting patiently to be
asked to join them. -
• All these types may be found in the
-.'all-night saloon from 10 o'clock in the
evening until 3 or later in the morning,
and they are rarely seen elsewhere
later than 11 o'clock, and where they
are to go to now is indeed a problem. It
is probably of more direct interest to
these men themselves than to any one
else, but it certainly is ■
AN INTERESTING SUBJECT
for thought to anyone who is of an in
quiring and speculative turn of mind.
One thing is certain, the dream of the
temperance fanatic will not come to
pass, these men will not go home. Two
thirds of - them have no home, and if
they had they would not go there.
"Go home when you can't go any
where else," is a common saying among
the Owls, and it is one of the chief ar
ticles in their creed. There doesn't
seem to be any other place for them to
go. unless it be the all night restaurants
and coffee houses, and a man's welcome
there usually departs with the money he
pays his bill with.
