THE WORLD OF WORK, The St. Paul Trades Assembly Transacts Much Busi- ness. No Change in the Stone Cut- ter's Strike—The Labor Bureau. Minneapolis Briskly Prepares for the July Fourth Cele bration, Working-men Are Opposed to Franchises Which Are Monopolies. The St. Paul Trade and Labor assem bly held its regular meeting last Friday evening. Nearly every trade except the horseshoers reports work quiet, with a prospect of remaining so through the summer. The number of idle men has decreased during the past two weeks, gome finding work, others going fart her west, so that the resident popula tion have a belter prospect at getting lair wages. _ * » Election of. officers for the ensuing six months resulted in the following re election: President, J. B. Coughlin; vice president, .lames McGuire; record ing secretary. Miss Mollie Lee; finan cial secretary, Frank Vallesh: treasurer, Thomas Reese; trustees, Phil Cor coran, J. C. Heenan and Philip Fisher; delegate to hall board, .1. B. Conghlin; delegate to state eight-hour convention, E. Esherholm. The officers were imme diately obligated and will take their re spective places at the next meeting. * - * The circular from the state eight-hour committee was read and approved, a committee being appointed to visit the organizations and urge them to make all arrangements so that the committee can report at the next reeular meeting of the assembly. The following dele gates were appointed on that commit tee : Messrs. Esberholm, Donlin, Peter son, ("anon and Kreger. __RH ■+ » Each delegate was also instructed to report to his organization that the trade and labor assembly recommend that every effort be made to ensure the suc cess of the eight-hour celebration. A communication was received from "President Harrison's secretary saying that the recommendation of the assem bly, in regard to the appointment of public pi inter, was duly received and would be laid before the president. THE STONECUTTERS' STRIKE Many Men Leave the City— The Rest Are Firm Delegates from the . stonecutters' union reported the members of that craft still out, but hopeful of ultimate success. About 225 men went out on the strike. Of this number only eighty 's!:!": remain in the city, the others hav ing left the city to find work in other places. The strikers are in a position to stay, out for _ long time if necessary, as they belong to the International union and receive strike pay from that body. .7 per week being paid to mar ried" men and $5 to single men. Some employers circulated a report that the men had gone back to work, but this is not true. Advertisements for men from the outside have brought but few, as the stonecutters have warned all of their craft to keep away. The greatest grievance of the strikers is that the em ployers refuse to recognize the union, and if the present difficulty is not set tled in accordance with the requests of the union, that it will lead to serious differences between employers and men in the future. The cutters are willing to do everything in their power to settle this matter so that the former amicable relations may be reestab lished. But under no consideration will they five up their organization. LABOR UNION NOTES. The ladies' beneficiary department holds its regular open meeting at labor headquarters this afternoon. District Secretary T. H. Lucas will deliver an address, and all interested are invited to attend. The Street Car Drivers' association met last evening and had a large at tendance. A number of the members have left the city, but the interest in the organization is still kept up. The plasterers hold an open meeting at labor headquarters to-morrow evening to discuss organization. All members of that craft are requested to attend, whether they belong to the union or not. 1 he plasterers have several grievances against contractors in this city. One, an alderman well known in the city, employs apprentices at small wages, and charges for their work at union rates. These apprentices receive from .100 to .175 a year. They keep union men out of places, and do their work in an unskillful manner. A delegate spoke of several evasions of contracts made with the union, where the employers apparently fulfil] the letter of the con tract, but by various shifts peculiar to the trade, make the agreement practi cally useless. A committee was ap pointed from the Trades and Labor as sembly to investigate this matter. STILL, IN STATU QUO. Hie labor bureau is still in statu quo. It is conceded that Mr. Lamb has a good prospect of reappointment, and it is thought that his last recommenda tions for inspectors are favored by the governor. In this connection it is only fair to remark that many of the criti cisms in the daily press of Mr. Lamb's work in the oast seem to have been set afloat by people having some personal prejudice against the commissioner. While the report could be vastly im proved in many features, yet it must be remembered that the commissioner had many obstacles to meet on account of the newness of the bureau and the small appropriation made for its maintenance. The bureau has now a sufficient equip ment to warrant people in looking for a good report next year, and it would be in better taste to work for the appoint ment of an efficient force rather than spend time in going over past events. * » Ihe Land Improvement association is growing in popularity with the working people. The machinery of by-laws and regulations seem rather elaborate, but possibly the directors will be willing to spend the time necessary to put them in thorough operation. The gentlemen having the affair in hand say that they have a long list of people ready to take hold of the company as soon as it is properly incorporated. The success of this company would do much to revive interest in practical co-operation. MINNEAPOLIS INDUSTRIAL. 'Hie committee on the eight-hour cele bration are still working busily perfect ing arrangements for the coming cele bration. The following circular is being sent to all organizations which the committee is able to reach. There are so many unions and assemblies scattered throughout the state that it is quite possible that some have been over looked. If there be any such the com mittee will esteem it as a favor if they accept the following as : their official notification, and make every possible arrangement for participating in the celebration : Minneapolis, Miun., June 10, 1889.— A committee appointed from the State Eight- Hour convention is arranging for a gr.nd in lustrial celebration to be held at the Slate Fair grounds, llamliue, Minn., on July 4. for the purpose of giving prominence to that question, and - showing how * unanimous a sect intent exists ; in favor • of eight ; hours among all branches of organized labor." The largest . industrial i parade - ever seen in the stato will be held during the day upon the grounds, in which every branch of Industry fs invited to participate. (James and athletic contests of all sorts will also be held, the numerous and valuable prizes being fur nished by leading busiuess houses from the cities throughout the state. In order to make (he affair a success, and also that all may have an opportunity to take part in the celebration, it will bo necessary to discuss the matter thoroughly and make all local arrangements immediately. Those wishing to enter as contestants in the various sports should send their names to this oflico at once. Please notify this committee what action your local or union takes in the mat ter, so that the details in regard to the parade and sports may be looked after. Remember "that this will be one of tho greatest eight-hour demonstrations held in the country, and you owe it to yoursehes and to the cause you represent to do every thing in your power to make the parade and other features both interesting and attractive. A prompt answer to this circular will be much appreciated by the committee, as every arrangement must bo perfected by July 1, and no change of programme can be made after that date. J. P. McGauohey, Chairman. Eva McDonald, Secretary. B-UPU Committee Room 8, 42 Third street south Several organizations have already completed their plans and forwarded them to the secretary, and- it is to be hoped that the others will follow their example. Of course each organization has the utmost latitude in making its preparations; but in order to secure proper space and attention should noti fy the general committee at once. Some organizations are taking time by the forelock, and getting up enjoya ble picnics, to which all members and friends are cordially invited. Anions these are the tailors' picnic held to-day at Bass lake, at which the knights of the shears will have a number of amus ing athletic contests and all sorts of quiet amusements, making the day one of rest and recreation. The teamsters of the Twin Cities hold a joint picnic at Denoya Park this week. The members of this branch of trade are among the best organized and most active organi zations in the Twin Cities, and are like ly to have a large crowd and a merry time at their picnic. The East Side labor club reports a steady increase of membership for sev eral months past and expect a return to the old time prosperity. ._ * «. The Social Science institute holds its regular meeting this evening at the Labor temple. Street railway fran chises will be the most important topic of discussion and the crude philoso phers are expected to be there in full force. The discussion is open to all without reference to membership. The X, of L. building association di rectors held a special meeting in the Labor temple last Mouday evening. Several important matters were brought up for discussion but none of the plans are ready for publication. The local eight-hour league held a business meeting on Thursday evening. Reports of committees and routine busi ness occupied a larger portion of the evening. At present the scope of the work is necessarily limited, but the various committees report progress in the lines of work assigned to them. A member prominent in labor circles visited Washburn, Wis., and vicinity during the week, and reports an en couraging state of affairs. The K. of L. have a large organization, and use it i:: ?. ""'.est effective __S___er. ! During the last election the Washburn Municipal Reform . association .gained written pledges from a number of political as pirants, and thus far the pledges have been well kept. The Washburn people are much interested in the affairs of the organization in the Twin Cities, and follow the plans adopted in them as closely as possible, and it would seem with better success. They will prob ably send delegates to the state eight hour convention, and send a large force to participate in the parade on July 4. The ladies' labor Lyceum of North Minneapolis held its regular meeting on Thursday evening at Hunt's hall, a large number being present to receive in struction in the symbolic work of the orders Another meeting will be held liext Thursday evening at the same hall. ..-. The Nationalist's club held a pleasant meeting last Tuesday evening. The organization of the club is gradually taking definite shape. Now cards .of invitation are given to each member, and only those provided with such cards are admitted. The object, of course, is to insure the admission only of those in sympathy with the objects of the club; but it must be remembered that such a rule easily renders a society so intensely respectable and exclusive that its usefulness is destroyed. Per- haps this society may escape such a fate, and it is to be hoped that it will, for such societies are doing good work in Eastern cities, and there is plenty of room for the same work here. » * *• The socialists meet at the Labor Tem- ple next Sunday evening.

THE BAimT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 16, 1839.— SIXTEEN PAGES. HOWTHEYGOHIERE, Prominent and Wealthy Men Who Have Captured Pretty Girls. Peculiar Circumstances of Their Courtship's Roman- tic Days. Many Fascinating: Stories on the Very Interesting- Theme. Whitney's Belmont's Duel— Young- Gould's Love- General Love Talk. The wife of Hon. William C.Whitney, recently secretary of the navy, has proved a veritable mascot to him. And the manner in which he became a close ally of Standard Oil is indicative of the good fortune which has attended this astute politician and financier throughout his career. When young Whitney was at Yale he j had a chum in a confiding classmate, who is now Rev. Leander Chamberlain, a brother of ex-Governor Daniel H. Chamberlain. Young Chamberlain, so the story goes, had won the heart of Miss Payne, daughter of Henry B. Payne, of Cleve- land, O., and he gave his classmate glowing accounts of the charms of man- ner, conversational powers and other good qualifications of the lady to young Whitney. On one of his vacations, young Chamberlain invited his chum to go to Cleveland with him and make the acquaintance of Miss Payne. The future corporation counsel and secretary of the navy accepted the invi- tation*; he made the lady's acquaintance and managed so skillfully to be stricken by Cupid's oleaginous bow that ere many moons had passed young Cham- berlain had gotten his conge and his chum, friend and bosom companion walked away with the fair prize. Owing to the devotion of Col. Oliver Payne to his sister, she has proved a boon to Mr. Whitney, and the splendid house at Fifty-seventh street and Fifth avenue, and a large gift, said to be $500,000, when the secretary and his wife set out to startle Washington en- tertainments, are generally set down among the good things which young Whitney's chum lost through that con- fiding introduction. AUGUST BELMONT. His Marriage to Commodore Per- ry's Daughter Grew Out of a Duel. A romantic story is told about the first meeting of August Belmont with the lady who is now his wife. As be- came her brave blood, the daughter of Commodore Oliver Perry, "the hero of Lake Erie," while still a blooming Bal- timore belle, had an intense admiration for personal courage. It was while she was on a visit to some relative in this city that the active and sturdy young German banker, who had at once taken the place in metropol- itan societv due the representative of the powerful house of Rothschild, be- came involved in a famous duel. At the theater one evening he was among a group of young men, and be- tween the acts one of the party ex- pressed his admiration of the beauty of the ladies present in the boxes, among ,whom was Miss Perry. A noted Georgia "fire eater" standing by," who was widely. feared and avoided as a bully and a dead shot, made some remark re- flecting on the virtue of women gen- erally. There was silence for a moment, when young Belmont, a slight, timid-looking fellow, to the dismay of his compan- ions, faced the bully and said in dis- tinct, deliberate tones: "The dog who could utter such a sent- iment insults the memory of his own mother and is unfit for the company of decent men 1" White with rage, the bully hissed: "You shail hear from me, sir!" It was before the war in the good old times, and a duel followed, of course. Belmont's friends gave him up as a dead man. But when the smoke from the. simultaneous fire of the two pistols had cleared away it was found • that the bully had a bullet through his heart and Belmont had a ball in his left leg below the knee. He became the hero of the hour, and soon after he was able to get about he proposed to the beautiful Miss Perry and was accepted. He afterwards con- . fessed that it was her noble face that nerved him to resent the - imputation on her sex. To this day he limps pain- fully, but his wife is proud of his dis- figurement. GEORGE GOULD. His First Sight of Miss Kingdon ' Was at Daly's Theater. The story of George Gould's courtship" of Miss Edith Kingdon is known in some of its main features, and yet there are phases of it of a lively interest in them selves and yet not so fully displayed to the outside world. v A well known actor who traveled with Miss Kingdon when she was on the road in the West previous io her engagement by Augustin Daly, recently entertained a few friends with a recital of what he termed the true story of the affair. According to this narrative young Mr. Gould first set eye on Miss Kingdon over the footlights" at Daly's theater. She was playing a dashing part, in which her natural buoyancy, verve and chic had full play, and these made a deep impression on the young financier. He determined to have an introduction. He sought it through a well known dramatic manager and dealer in plays, and by him the desired event was brought about. The admiration proved mutual and the devotion pronounced on either side. There was one obstacle in tbe way of unalloyed happiness during the en gagement that followed. And that was Miss Kingdon's mother. That lady is the shrewdest kind of a woman, and the story told of - her geneially is that she kept a regular major domo eye on her daughter throughout her career upon the stage. She always chaperoned Miss Edith and always found it convenient to join her daughter whenever she re ceived callers, especially male ones. - . The consequence was that young Mr. Gould longed for a short engagement and a ; swift marriage. How he suc ceeded in gratifying his desires in that line is now a matter of histery. He makes a devoted husband and she a de voted wife. They have had two chil dren. _- PRESIDENT CLEVELAND. Fulfillment of Little Frankie Fol- som's Prophetic Words. As a young man Grover Cleveland was extremely fond of children. In the bachelor apartments over his law office in Buffalo the walls were covered with '■ photographs of : bright and , beautiful babes. He was particularly interested in the pretty little daughter of his part ner and closest friend, Oscar Folsom, and it is said 4 that = a portrait of . the •lovely child at five years old, arrayed in a white dress with a big blue sash, held the place of honor in his collection. When Oscar - Folsom died he made Cleveland a co-trustee with Mrs. Fol- som of their only child, and, true to his trust, Cleveland watched over the rear- ing and education of • the girl with ten 'derest solicitude. '; As the child grew to womanhood the londs of affection drew the girl and her i AN ETELKA SUMMER COSTUME. guardian closer and finally strengthened iuto the bonds of love. An old schoolmate of Mrs. Cleveland's tells the tale of Cleveland's proposal: When little Frances was eight years old she was sitting on "Uncle Grover's" lap one day entertaining him with child ish prattle of what she should do when she grew up into "a big lady." It was about the time of Nelly Grant's mar riage in the White house, which had formed a topic of family talk. "I'm going to have a nice white satin dress and get married in the White house, too," she lisped. "But I thought you were going to marry me, and 1 should wait for you," laughingly returned Mr. Cleveland. "Of course it will be you, for you will grow up to be president then," said the child, knowingly. When Cleveland was elected Mrs. Folsom and her daughter were prepar ing to go to Europe, and on calling to say.good-by. Mr. Cleveland claimed from Miss Folsom th. fulfillment, on her return, of tbe promise made when a child. He had performed his part of the bargain, and she had only to fulfill her's and become a White house bride. T GARFIELD. PRESIDE?* Lucreti a Rudolph Was First His Pupil and Then His Wife. It was during his first term at Geauga Seminary in Chester, 0., that James A. Garfield, then a boy of sixteen, met Lu cretia Rudolph, the girl who was to be his destiny. She was the daughter of a farmer in the neighborhood, and from the first exerted a marked influence by inspiring the poorjiowpath boy jto high endeavor. yY'YY.- y y - ; 7 Afterward, while a tutor 'at Hiram, college, the young lady was -one of his pupils. Mutual esteem and sympathy, arising out of their association in the school, soon ripened into the tenderer feeling which brought about their sub sequent union. PRESIDENT HARRISON. He Marries the Girl to Whom He '■ Pledged His First and Only Love. President Harrison met the lady who is now his wife while he was a student at Miami university. His experience was the rare one of a college student actually marrying the girl to whom he had pledged his first and only love. The story is prettily told in the biography of the president written by his familiar friend, General Lew Wallace: "It happened that in the town 7 over looked'by Miami university, there was an academy for young ladies, of which Dr. John W. Scott was manager and president. The fair students were a sparkling feature of the society of the village, and young Harrison was not so ascetically devoted to the Union Liter ary and making good the favoritism shown him as an orator on occasions as to be blind to the sex. Far from that, lie was notoriously diligent in seeking partners for concerts, lectures, . picnics and parties. 7 "It also happened that President Scott had a daughter, girlish, intelligent, witty, attractive, in whom the young man quickly discovered all the qualities that entered into tne composition of his ideal of a perfect woman. Suddenly he gave up attention to the gentle patrons of the academy in general and became more a slave to his books than ever. For a season there was much wonder over the change; at length it was ex plained—he was engaged to marry Miss Caroline W. Scott, the president's daughter. The contract argues great courage and confidence in his future when it is remembered that he v. as poor and just out of the : junior class, and but eighteen years of age." • Of course the inference is plain that this courtship began with a flirtation when the girls' school went out for a promenade, and the boys "happened" around that way by mere accident to notice "how well they kept step." PRESIDENT LINCOLN. Mary Todd's Prophecy That She Would Be Mistress of the "White House. -V There was a flavor of fatalism in the first meeting of Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd. As a child the future Mrs. Lincoln often prophesied that she would become the wife of a \ president of the United States. She was herself the dauehter'of a Kentucky congressman and something of a belle in her native town of Lexington. When a 'mere girl she refused to marry a Southern statesmon : of , most attractive personality and high gifts, whose friends looked upon him as one not unlikely to reach the White house. Soon afterward she went to: live with a sister at Springfield, 111. While there, Lincoln, then an obscure lawyer of. homely mien and ungainly figure, was presented to her. When he had gone her sister asked Miss Todd's opinion of "Ugly Abe." "That man will be president ' one of these ; days," she replied. - "He will make a husband to be proud of." . About that time Lincoln's chances of ever becoming president seemed about as remote a possibility as could be im agined, and- Mary's sister laughed at the idea. All the same, she was married to "Ugly Abe'!, a few months afterward. Four years from their marriage he was elected : to congress, and " in _ fourteen years more his wife's ' prediction was fulfilled. 7 - 7 ; " - An Untimely Call. . I Buffalo Courier. . _- ' "I was painfully reminded the other night," said a good young man, "that yon can't touch pitch without being de filed. I agreed with a young fellow that I would go to the theater with- him. I told him I would go to a prayer meeting for a little while first, and if he would come around to the church shortly after 8 o'clock and whistle for me softly I would join him. The minister was in the middle of his exhortation, when all at once the profane air of 'Razzle-Daz zle,' whistled iv the vestibule, flooded the lecture room. I immediately recog nized the voice of my friend and blushed for him. You can imagine, perhaps how humiliating it was to . rise and go out in response to such sacrilegious music, but I did it, and .it seemed as though the eyes of the entire congrega tion must be fixed upon me in indignant rebuke." ■ > . . TROUSERS FOR WOMEN. Airs. Celia B. Whitehead Gives Good Reasons for a Change in Feminine Attire. Mrs. Celia B. Whitehead is one of the few women who assert, and give no heed to the contradictory evidence, that the only proper raiment for women is "trousers." She is a thinking women, and a reading woman moreover, and is continually coming across something in print which looks to her like wretched ignorance of the truth. The last sub ject on which Mrs. Whitehead has been pathetically discoursing to her friends was furnished her by an . article con demnatory of women's dress, reprinted in the World from the Medical Annual. In relation to this Mrs. Whitehead said to. World reporter: f^6_*ittfsMmt^~SS "I am glad to hear the question at the end of this article. Will any woman be frightened into reason?" comments Mrs. Whitehead, "but I fear the answer. Women are heroic in the endurance of pain 'because they are used to it,' but they cannot endure what they think is unwomanly. 1 remember a frail little woman at a water cure who said, with all the firmness of a martyr: "If it's the backache or the Bloomer dress, I'll keep the backache.' "A dress which takes into account the fact that women have 'limbs,' 'lower limbs' as well as upper limbs— as they are necessary for use, it cannot be really unwomanly to adapt a dress to them and their use— is the . dress that must come before : the hor rors caused by compressed waists and burdened shoulders and ' fet tered legs will be done away. 'That means trousers!' Oh, does it? , Very well; I don't care for names; but we may ridicule and -hesitate, and squirm and evade and compromise, groan, suf fer and die as long as we like; we may study and invent, only to find at last that a two legged animal wants, a two legged dress— if any— and that it would be just as absurd to insist on making a coat of one immense sleeve for both upper limbs as to make a dress of one immense: skirt for both 'lower : limbs,' and not a whit more so.-_B__ajß_|pn_M "I am thankful that the Medical An nual does not go into a denunciation of tight lacing.. It very sensibly says: 'The one thing that is most objection able is the formation of an artificial waist. To simply order the re moval of stays will be found altogether insufficient, for stays are undoubtedly a protection against the tight ligature of skirts which ac companies their use. The only satis factory way is to abolish both. But it says another thing not so sensible. 'Every article of clothing, whether upper or under garments, is to be made in combination, or without division at the waist. The weight of each gar ment is then borne mainly by the shoulders and bust, and no constriction of the waist is necessary.' "The objectionable portion of this is that there seems to be an intimation that shoulders and bust can stand with impunity any amount of weight. This is a serious error. Any dress reform which does not reduce the weight of the clothing and at the same time make a dress sb adapted to the form that each part shall help to sustain its covering, does not reach tbe root of the trouble."

Y Pimples to Scrofula Every humor from pimples to scrofula, except ichthyosis, is speedily, perma- - nently and economically cured by the C.ticuka Remedies. This is strong lan guage, but true. It will encourage thousands of hopeless sufferers who have tried and found wanting both physicians and medicines, to make one more effort to rid themselves of these terrible afflictions. C__OUB_ is the only positive cure. Cured by Cuticura . For three years I was almost crippled with an awful sore leg from my knee down to my ankle; the skin was entirely gone, and tho flesh was one mass of disease. Some ' physi cians pronounced it incurable. It had di minished about one-third the size of the other, and I was in a hopeless condition. Alter trying all kinds of remedies and spend ing hundreds of dollars, from which I got no relief whatever, I was persuaded to try your Cuticura Remedies, and the result was as follows: After three days I noticed a de cided change for the better, and at the end of two months I was - completely cured. My flesh was purified, and the bone (which had been exposed for over a year) got sound. The flesh began to grow, and to-day, and for nearly two years past, my leg is as well as ever, sound In every respect, and not a sign of the disease to be seen. Y9_~"9K?IX~ 8. G. AHERN, Dubois, Dodge Co., Ga. Skin Diseases I contracted a terrible blood-poisoning a year ago. I doctored with two good physi cians, neither cf whom did me any good. I suffered all a_ man can suffer aud live. Hearing of your Cuticura Remedies I con cluded to try them, knowing if they did me no good they could make me no worse. I have been using them about ten weeks, and am most happy to say that I am almost rid of the awful sores that covered my face and body. My face was as bad, if not worse, than that of Miss Boynton, spoken of in your book, and I would say to anyone In tbe same condition, to use Cuticura, and they will surely be cured.
