THF* SABBATH CONVENTION There were some peculiar doctrines, as might have been expected, promul gated at the convention of the friends ot the Christian Sabbath at Westminster church last week. It seemed as if the leaders of the con vention had resolved in their own minds in what manner every individual in this country must seek relaxation from the strain of labor. Their entire theory stood on the as sumption that nothing is rest on the Sabbath day but entire stagna tion. Prominent members de nounced Sunday excursions; others who would have been prominent had they been present, left written views of the Sunday newspaper as a great cause of unrest." Still others seemed to think. that if the street cars could only be stopped and people compelled to walk two or three miles to church twice on Sunday thev would rise on Monday re freshed and invigorated. It will occur to the common-sensed observer that these views are very one-sided. Hu manity is not all run in one mould. There are as many ways of resting as as there are of working, lt is an axiom that not stagnation, but change of employ ment brings rest. The man who sits at a desk all the week wants physical em ployment on his rest day. He must walk, or ride, or row. or something to balance up the week's one-sided labor In which the brain lias borne the brunt. On the other hand, the laborer is in need of some mental pabulum on Sun day. He has a desire to read, to talk, to hear music, good speaking, or look at pictures. But the strict Sabbatarians would have him housed between sermons, in a stuffy room with a copy of Baxter's "Saints' Best" on his knees. Take, for instance, a traveling man. whoso business keeps him rushing from one city to another on railroad trains, getting inferior quality and quantity of sleep as he goes. The Sab batarian orders him to rise betimes on Sunday and appear at church, forbids him to look atanewspaper. except may be a denominational weekly, full. of es says about the missionary work among the Hottentots and secular advertise ments of gift enterprises and organs given away. Common sense declares that the way that man should rest is to knit up the" raveled sleeve of care with forty extra winks, even if he misses a good sermon thereby. And so the Sab batarians go on humbugging them selves with theories that they do not practice themselves but are very will ing others should Dractice. Their great illustration is always the Puritan age, which they fondly hope to revive. It appears impossible for min isters to understand that the Puritans were not representative of humanity, but that they were a freak: that they stood for a reaction against license. If there had never been a lewd period in English character, there would have never been a Puritan period, at least on the social side, and until the world sees another Charles I.'s court it will never see another Crom well's court. With all their sniveling psalm singing the Puritans were blood thirsty and self-willed to a degree, and the best that may be said of them is that they are to be preferred historically to their immediate predecessors and successors, the Stuart dynasties. The present status of society is so much superior to either that it is unnecessary to argue that Puritanism has gone, never to come again. The friends of the Sabbath have a great work to perform in securing to the laborer, to the capitalist, to the men and to women the unquestioned right to one day's rest in seven. But they have no right to dictate how rest shall be found. It ought to be assumed that in this country everybody will eujpy his rest day in a lawful manner. which is just what men like Senator Blair, Dr. Crafts and others who are riding their hobby do not assume. They want to secure everybody a rest day and then dole it out to said everybody in spoonfuls in a manner to suit them selues. They thus weaken their legiti mate hold on" the law-abiding element that believes as firmly in the day of rest as any of the leaders in the Sab bath movement. The convention dealt too much in platitudes, and gave too much sympa thy to the men who get up Sunday newspapers — on Saturday. They have found a better example as near home. The Minneapolis mills are seldom all running at the same time. If they did they would eat up the wheat crop in short order. The Northwestern Miller's reports from week to week show that seven or eight of the twenty-two mills are always idle. And yet, it is a fact that most of the big flour factories, when running, run on Sunday nights. Why could not the convention have called upon the big millers and arranged with them to have the manufacture of flour so distributed that this Sunday work might be done away? Would the fact that the biggest millers are the biggest pew holders render the Sabbatarians in any wise diffident about doing their duty in this matter? ALL SORTS. The Irish Standard sopiently remarks that there was not even an imaginary meeting of Irishmen on the East side on Wednesday evening. This is drawing the line pretty. close, but the Globe can bring good evidence to the contrary. A. J. Blethen offers this contribution to contemporary thought: "If the Jour nal wants to be hoodoed in this city it should urge me to advertise Haskell as its editor." The Star got a neat scoop on its esteemed contemporary in the verdict In the Hertogs libel suit against the Globe. John G. Woolley has a bee in his bon net. It buzzes a "good deal, but makes mighty little honey. Up to date the members of the Penn sylvania society have not assumed half the interest charge on the city's dono tion of $10,000 to Johnstown. Such propositions are all Pennsylvania Dutch to them. At the first glance it looked as though Gov. Merriam, in appointing "Mahoney and Emery" regents of the university. had honored both of the municipal court judges. The Mr. Emery ap pointed, however, lives in Lake City. An evening paper says Tommy Left wich intends to make it very hot for his "brother-in-law." In justice to G. S. Grimes it should be understood that he is only a brother to Leftwich in the pro fession of the law.

THE GABLE INDORSED. Three Meeting's Held to Con- sider the Street Railway Problem. The Board of Trade Will Look Into the Question of Legality. The Citizens' Meeting at Har- monia Hall— The New Ca ble Indorsed. The Herdic Meeting: at Bridge Square Everybody Is " Roasted." It is quite apparent that the people of Minneapolis are becoming thoroughly aroused to the necessity of competition in the matter of street car service. The proposition of Anderson, Douglass & Co.. as representatives of Eastern capi tal, to build several cable lines, if given a franchise by the council, offers an opportunity for better transpor tation facilities that the public is anxious should be improved. The board of trade held a special meet ing yesterday morning, at which the proposition of Anderson, Douglass & Co., was discussed and indorsed by the more progressive element of the board. Of course there was objection raised as might be expected, for the board of trade is composed of giant minds that do not always run in the same channel. In the evening there was a citizens' meeting at Harmonia hall at which the real sentiments of the taxpayers were given a free expression, and the proposition was warmly seconded, and a demand for its recognition by the council made. There was another citi zens' meeting at Bridge square, which was held in protest against the exclu sive franchise which Thomas Lowry has thus far been allowed to control. THE BOARD OP TRADE Favors Granting Another Fran chise If It Can Be Done Le gally. At the special meeting of the board of trade yesterday morning Secretary Hall read a communication from Ander son & Douglass, setting forth the propo sition made by them for the establish ment and operation of a cable line sys tem. Capt. O. C. Merriman suggested that the proposition should be re ferred to a committee for investigation. Upon the motion of W. E. Steele, the chair appointed as the committee O. C. Merriman, Leander Torton, Nel son W. Harris, C. P. Lovell and W. E. Steele. The committee is to report at a special meeting of the board to be held at 11 o'clock Thursday morning. The committee met immediately after the adjournment of the board and re ceived expressions of opinion from the members. Dorillius Morrison opposed the granting of a franchise to the new company by the council so long as the stieet railway company is able to meet the requirements of the city, as he claimed it is doing. The granting of the franchise, too, ■ would, he thought, lead to litigation detrimental to the city. A. B. Barton wanted to have the legal right . of the council to grant a franchise settled first. E. S. Corser said: "I hope the council will be wise enough to grant the new company the required permit. Of course, I desire to have the city's inter ests properly protected. The city is badly in need of the transportation fa cilities this company proposes to es tablish. Every branch of business will be benefited, and there is no reason why Minneapolis should not have these facilities as well as other cities in the country. If we go into the moral side of the case, then we shall have to con sider the right of a quarter of a million of inhabitants, as well as the rights of Mr. Lowrv." J. T. Wyman said competition was the life ot every branch of business, and, if he had a right understanding of the matter, there was no legal or moral obligation which prevented the council granting the new company the right to build and maintain the system pro posed. If this company was ready to give boiuis to carry out their part of the contract he favored the plan. It would be a great benefit to the entire city to have these hues established, and it was an opportunity that the business men of the city had no right to let pass by. Judge Daniel Fish questioned the right of the council in granting an ex clusive street railway franchise to Mr. Lowry in the first place. He did not believe the franchise was a legal one. This was a question, he said, that the courts would have to decide. He was not certain that the council would now have any right to grant the new com pany a franchise. As there was certain to be contention between the old and new companies, if the franchise was granted, the courts of necessity would have to settle these rights. Capt. Merriman,. who was mayor when the exclusive franchise was granted Mr. Lowry, said when the ordinance was submitted to him for his approval or re jection, lie seriously questioned its le gality, but finally approved it, believing it was for the best. Under the circum stances he did not think the present council had any right to grant a fran chise to a new company, and questioned the legality of such action. Dr. O. J. Evans, who was a member of the council that granted the Lowry franchise, said while there was a moral right to be considered now, he believed that if the city demanded the building of certain lines of railway, and the com pany holding the franchise failed to comply, the right could be given to other parties. Aid. C. P. Lovell spoke in favor of the proposition, and other addresses pro and con were listened to. The committee went into executive session, at which it was decided to get the opinion ol Judges Lochren, Smith and Young as to the legality of the company's right to grant the new com pany a franchise, and then adjourned to meet Tuesday at 2 o'clock, It is un derstood the committee will unani mously indorse granting the franchise if it can be done legally. HARMONIA MEETING. The New Cable Line Discussed and Warmly Indorsed, There were between 500 and 600 peo ple at Harmonia hall last night in an swer to the call for an expression of public opinion on the question of granting the cable line franchise asked for by Anderson, i Douglas & Co. It was a representative meeting, however, and included all kinds of citizens, laboring men, cap italists, lawyers, editors, and several cranks. A. J. Boardman was chosen chairman and E. L. Ryder secretary. Among those on the platform were Daniel Bassett, Leander Gortan, Hector Baxter, J. C. Oswald, J. H. Rolfe, A. T. Ankeny. H. G. O. Morrison, J.M. Shaw, David Roberts, Ezra Farnsworth and Judge William Welch. In opening the meeting, Mr. Boardman said: . "I hope we shall not have this meeting degenerate into a personal controversy with Mr. Lowry. He is a neighbor of mine, whose genius I admire, and 1 hope we shall be able to treat this ques tion as one between the municipal in terests and the street car company, and not bring any personalities into it." Chairman Boardman read the call, and then introduced A. T. Ankeny, who be gan his remarks by saying: "All of you who know me know I favor givink Anderson, Douglas & Co. the right to build to the lines they pro pose. 1 have lived for twelve years in the outskirts, and have always favored rapid transit and plenty of it. and I think I can discuss this question im THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING,.^ 16, 1889.— SIXTEEN PAGES. partially, for none of the lines proposed come within half a mile of where I Rye. "This is, gentlemen the most import ant question ever brought up in this city. I favor the new line because it will give the laboring men • the benefit of several million dollars. We all hailed the proposition to build up the East Side stock yards witli delight, but, 1 believe, this is a better thiug for tho laboring men than that was." A. T. ANKENY complimented Anderson, Douglas & Co. for their pluck, and alluded to the improvements they had wrought on the Oswald farm. This work, he said, en titled them to a standing before the council, and, together with their bond of $50,000, made the city perfectly safe. There were other questions to be discussed, whether the city had the right to grant the franchise and whethet it should be exclusive, but he considered the question of the expendi ture of the money for the laboring men as of paramount importance. ' JUDGE J. M. SHAW was introduced as a man who could give the law on the subject. Judge Shaw said he came to the meeting as a citizen and not as a lawyer. . He wished the question might be considered by the meeting not as lawyers but as sensi ble men. As to the ability of Anderson Douglas •._ Co.'s ability he quoted Mr. Ankeny, that their past labors was the best guarantee that they had made no promises they could not fulfill. As to the question whether they had the legal right to build these lines, Judge Shaw showed that the projectors of the new lines had not asked a right, but merely the opportunity to build and test their rights against all comers, and that, too, without costing the city ot Minneapolis a cent. If the city did not embrace such a proposition it was a fool. He didn't think that any man wanted to concede or believe that the Minneapolis street railway had its hand on the throat of the city in the matter of granting street railway franchises. Such a be lief, he thought, would do more than anything else to break down the pros perity of the city. Judge Shaw re marked that lie had occasion several years ago to look up the street railway franchise professionally and understood that it gave Mr. Lowry the exclusive right to run cars on the streets by animal and pneumatic power. Animals he understood meant horses, mules and jackasses. He understood, too, that the new projectors were ready to give the street railway company the monop oly of mule, horse and jackass power. Nor were cable cars run, as he under stood it. by pneumatic power. That meant the application of air or wind power. Messrs. Anderson, Douglas & Co. were willing to give the street rail way company the monopoly of wind, also. All they asked of the city was a fighting chance to put in cable lines; and every man deserved a fighting chance. COL. C. W. JOHNSON favored the proposition because he felt that it meant absolutely new blood, ab aolutely new capital and absolutely n2w enterprise. The present quiet condi tion of the city he traced to do to two things: First, insufficient terminal fa cilities resulting from a quarrel of two railroads ; second, lack of rapid local transportation. Heioought the city had developed as much property as could be reached properly by the present street railway system. He thought the city should, in order to compete with Kansas City and Omaha, have sixteen or eight eeu-minute service from the suburbs. A. J. BLETHEX made a vigorous speech." lt seemed to me when 1 first heard of this meeting that it was the most impudent thing 1 ever heard of. It Seemed like asking a man whether he wanted more money, or a lawyer if he desired more clients to ask the city if it wanted bet ter rapid transit. Every man who owned his furniture, far less his house, wanted it. He roasted the council for going|into a hole and re fusing to substitute a cable for the motor, which had been a nuisance for years before he came to this city. The editor praised the projectors of the herdic lino, and brought out great ap plause when he added the herdics would be better employed hauling people at five cents apiece than acting as a plat form for men who never paid any tax to shoot of their mouths from. R. J. ANDERSON, the senior member of the firm of An derson, Douglas & Co., was invited to the platform to explain his proposition. He stated in general terms what has al ready been hinted, that the scheme was backed by Philadelphia capital; that his firm would have control of the lines if built; that the syndicate was willing to accept fair conditions to the fran chise, and promised to meet every promise they made with a bond for its fulfilment. He gave his word of honor that there was no truth in the charges— that it was a scheme of Mr. Lowry's. He wanted to praise Mr. Lowry as a citizen and at the same time deny that he had any connection with the cable project. Leander Gorton offered the following resolution and moved its adoption: Whereas, A company ot gentlemen, believed to be perfectly responsible and able to perform all they propose to do, have offered to construct several lines of cable street cars in this city, which are by the best interests of the city imperatively demanded; Resolved, <l'hat in the opinion of this meet ing the offer of these gentlemen should be accepted by the council of this city ; pro video, always, that such : acceptance be prop erly guarded in all respects. JUDGE WILLIAM WELCH moved to lay the resolution on the table, and addressed the meeting in opposition to the proposition. He desired to see the cable lines built, but he wished to see the city build them. He drew a rosy picture of the revenue the city would draw then, and predicted it would relieve the city for local taxa tion. Judge Welch grew dramatic in closing, and, holding up his right arm, swore he would rather have that mem ber paralyzed than vote for another franchise to a corporation. c. J. BUELL got the floor as a compromise and went into a painfully minute description of the conditions of Glasgow tramway privileges. John l_lly, who had put in most of his time making irrelevant interrup tions, exclaimed: "Oh, we're not in Glasgow." Mr. Buell— Well, you were in Glas gow or Ireland or somewhere else a few years ago. In New York Mr. Buell said the berry privileges and the street railway fran chises were sold to the highest bidder, and he wanted the same done here, ap parently. He opposed the idea of trie city going into the street car business.' but he favored putting the franchises up at auction. If nobody bid for it, why it was worth nothing, and that was all Anderson, Douglas & Co. would have to pay for it, but he thought in fifteen years they ought to be willing to put it up for sale again. R. J. Anderson staled that at the end of fifteen or twenty years, when the lines were paying, his company would be willing to pay a fair tribute to the city He wanted only fair conditions. The chairman then stated the ques tion to be on the adoption of the reso lution, when Judge Welch called his attention to the motion to lay on the table. This was put and lost. The res olution was then adopted by a clear majority, though there was an appre ciable number of voices opposing. The Rerdic Meeting. AtB:3ooc'clock last night a parade passed down Nicollet avenue toward Bridge square. . It was headed by a platoon of mounted police, making a very fine appearance on their handsome horses. Following next • after the horsemen came two of the new herdics of the new line company. The first one bore musicians, who attracted the atten tion of all within hearing of the avenue by their enlivening music. The second coach was occupied by those most inter ested in the new enterprise. The re mainder of the procession was made up of citizens in carriages and afoot. The parade was formed at Labor Temple, from there proceeded to the ; corner of Sixth avenue south and. Fourth street, thence up Sixth avenue to Tenth sreet. along Tenth street to Nicollet avenue, and down Nic ollet to Bridge sqnare, where a herdic ratification had been an nouuced. The procession r grew .; as it proceeded, and on reaching the square f_*iufld the nucleus of a large gathering that ciu_t«re"i jjhput ' the . two herdics in the center of tv"» opjjil ; space at the intersection of the two avenues. * ,' y,v ' The crowd grew as the : band an nounced a meeting .by their music until E. O. Riff, president of the coach com pany, took h"s stand on top of the herdic for the opening remarks. In a few words he told how the coach line had grown up from the strike, and the numeaous meetings' consequent 'to it. "The object of the meeting," he said, "is to present the coach to the people." lam quite confident there can be but one opinion of them after inspec tion. I am quite confident too, that there will be no more strikes or black lists or wrangling about the pay of the employes of the line. There will be no more necessity for people to walk or else suffer the humiliation of riding as no good American should r de, especially good Minneapolitans. Rounds of applause and shouts of "We wont ride that way again," etc., followed the remark, and President Hit! introduced Hon. Thomas Lucas to an audience well prepared to listen to him. "Whenever there is any matters of importance in the city," began Mr. Lucas, "the proper place to take it is to the people. We have something im portant to bring before you to-night, and. knowing there was no hall in the city to hold our sympathizers, we have a mass meeting here." After devoting some time to theories of labor and capi tal in general, the orator arrived at the vital point by speaking of Mr. Lowry's new proposition for a cable line. "Tom Lowry has been so very kind and considerate as to propose, with his usual magnanimity, that if the citizens would bear the bulk of the expense and guarantee that he should in no way be stopped or hindered in his bleeding of the people, that he would put in a cable line. On the city's refusal to accept he goes so far in his kindness to the people as to offer to put in the line himself if the city would grant him the streets. It was so good a chance to benefit the people that he could not afford to let the opportunity pass. The question here to consider is whether or not the citizens want this cable of Mr. Lowry's." After a considerable condemnation of Mr. Lowry, .and a liberal expression of hatred toward him from the crowd, Mr. Clark spoke of the new proposition by Anderson, Douglas &Co. _£_P~B___P__£,7YY "Do you want another company to come inhere and rob you as Tom Lowry has done?" "No! No! No!" from tne crowd, They tell you that they will bring in capital and furnish labor and give us good transportation. Don't you believe them. In the first place, do rich men ever put their money in for anything but to make more out of it?" - Mr. Clark went off into the economics of the case again to show that more local labor would not be employed; that no capital would be brought into the city. He went back into the old strike topics, roasting Mr. Lowry profoundly and receiving much applause in conse quence. He said that if the city had been wise it would have never granted a franchise to Lowry. "Is it not time for us to put a stop to this granting of franchises? Mr. Lowry is not content with Minneapolis. He He has reached out into St. Paul with his lines, into Duluth and all the neigh boring towns, and pretty soon he will have the whole state cornered and you will be his slaves. He is like the man who killed the goose who layed the golden egg. He is crushing you to the earth." "Do not grant any more franchises to any one. The herdics are here to fur nish you with excellent transportation till the time when we can force Tom Lowry to sell his line to the city, not for the millions, but for the original .l-.oooheputintoit." ,"•' He closed* with an . appeal to buy stock in the company and pay for it. 7 J. L. Flenner, the secretary of the coach line.made a short speech in direct appeal. "Do you like the coaches of this corn- any?" ... .......* "Yes ! yes ! yes ! yes !" from the crowd. '.'Will you support this company?" "Yes! yes! yes!" :.:-. "'.._- "Will you who have purchased stock in this company pay it up?" ■'...' -.' '. "Yes! yes!" "Will you buy stock who have not?" "Yes!" faintly. H. B. Martin was the next speaker, and he made a long and rousing speech. "It was said by a man of . this city who is well known to you all that the city council should take into considera tion only the wishes of the citizens who own property in building this cable line, and pay no attention to those who own no property, and to men who would destroy property. He was casting a slur on the meeting here last Monday night, and the men who took part in that meeting. "I would say that the men who meet here to-night and those who met here last Monday night are the men who have the good of the city most at heart. I would have that man and the news papers to understand that the streets of this city belong to us all jointly, and we are all entitled to our beliefs. He should know that .when a man or a company asks us to make him a present of the streets of the city we are going to think twice before. we give them to it. In bringing these herdics to the city we are trying to ad vance the good of the city. It is men of this kind and not men like Mr. Blethen who are looking to the inter ests of Minneapolis. They are the - men who are forming an alliance with the street railway com panies and such monopolies to bleed the people. Let us not be distracted by any Col. Sellers cable that promises to bring us millions. It won't do it." Mr. Martin devoted much time to condemn ing the cable line propositions of out side parties. He branded them as bloated monopolists and scheming swindlers. These . men were coming like the advance guard of a great army from the East that would conquer the West, make a second Ire land or a Poland of it. lie would give warning before the franchise stealing the streets was given. The horse was still in the stable. Beware of the thief who would steal it. "Go and lock your stable door while you can. it is there, the door of the council cham ber. You will " find there a man". Goodrich; beware of him. He is there advising the council. These men who have been elected for aldermen may not be very smart, but they' need no aid from him. When old Thomas made a proposition there last week, they sat right down on him. Keep on, fel low citizens. He - advises commenc ing proceedings against the company, to take away the franchise and scored Mr. Lowry for the old strike difficulties. He condemned the new company equally with the old and was responded to by his listeners. "Mr. Blethen,, of the Tribune," he said, "is in favor of his partner, Mr. Lowry, being granted the franchise, because he is a Minneapolis man, but he is not a Minneapolis man." The crowd shouted out their roasts against Mayor Babb and the council and Tom Lowry. Mr. Martin closed booming the Herdics. and telling a story illustrating what he called Lowry's bleeding of the people. The meeting broke up en thusiastic for the Heretics and three cheers for ex-Mayor Ames. ll* Is It a "Fake." A tishtly sealed wood box about three inches square and the same in depth was found floating in the river just above the falls last night by J. Kunz, of the island power: company. On breaking it open he found a note enclosed written in a coarse hand ou a torn slip of paper, lt read: "Who ever finds this please tell my folks that Charley has drowned himself. Address Charlie White, 401 Third street south." The address civen is at the chamber of commerce, and the police, to whom the matter was reported, r thi nk it a "fake.' A Shakespearean Recital, An audience of over 200 gave undi vided attention to Hannibal A. Will iams in his recital of "Julius Caesar" at Dyer's Music hail last night, and re ceived : at his hands a rendition of the tragedy at once forceful, discriminating and artistic. It ; was ' the : first of a pri vate course, to be followed by "The Taming of the Shrew" and "Othello" on Tuesday,, and Wednesday evenings of liext week."

' Any person who is fond of wine, or uses it for medicinal purposes. ] cannot fail to note the difference in effect be tween a good, pure, wholesome article and the villainous stuff which is sold under the names of expensive foreign brands. A great many people who have long used the latter under the impres sion that it was "the best to be had," are now coming to their senses, and using domestic wines instead. Their wisdom is attested by an improvement in health, to say noth ing of the saving in money. Impurity in these wines is out of the question, as the cost of production is so little that it would not be profitable to adulterate. A reporter calied the other day upon the Napa Valley Wine company. This house is the recognized headquarters in the Northwest for California wines, and their great specialty— the products of the famous To Kalon vineyards— is (.rowing daily in popularity. A delight ful sherry was sampled, and ' a quart bottle purchased at a cost of 50 cents. for "home consumption." The "con sumption" has since disappeared.
