The St. Paul Trades Assembly
Transacts Much Busi-
No Change in the Stone Cut-

Minneapolis Briskly Prepares
for the July Fourth Cele
Working-men Are Opposed to
Franchises Which Are
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
'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.

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

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

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

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 franchise question is being agi-
tated thoroughly, although there seems
to be some difference of opinion among
working people. While all are opposed
in principle to the granting of fran-
chises, yet many, think that if another
company obtained a limited franchise,
it might have a beneficial effect upon
Mr. Lowry in the way of making him
assume a less dictatorial attitude toward
the public and his employes. The new
company also promise rapid transporta
tion, which certainly would be appre
ciated by the patient public.

Prominent and Wealthy Men
Who Have Captured Pretty
Peculiar Circumstances of
Their Courtship's Roman-
tic Days.
Many Fascinating: Stories on
the Very Interesting-
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.
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.
His Marriage to Commodore Per-
ry's Daughter Grew Out of a
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-
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-
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. _-
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
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.
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.
He Marries the Girl to Whom He
'■ Pledged His First and Only
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."
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." ■ > .
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

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~

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. You may use this letter in
tbe interests of suffering humanity.
