He might have been drunk, or he
Jniffht have been sick. At any rate he
stood leaning over the railing or the
Wabasha street bridge last night "heav
ing up JoiKih" in i, r reat shape. His
v-o-o-o-o-p could be heard for several
blocks, and awakened the echoes away
up ihe rivei. As he stood there a short
line train over the Milwaukee road
came dashing in under him from the di
rection of Minneapolis. As he saw the
headlight he wiped his mouth on the
back of his hand, and the water from
his eyes with his coat sleeve, and,
steadying himself against the railing,
muttered: "Whash in sir world ish

Here he had become so dizzy looking
at the glaring headlight that he tipped
over backwards, and a policeman came

When the policeman took hold ot him,
he half opened his eyes and hic
coughed: , ,
"Whish— hie— ish it; sh' sun or sh —

nothing but travel about the country

A company of ladies and gentlemeu
Rat at dinner last evening at the resi
dence ol a well-known citizen on Laurel
avenue, liy great pleading and reiter
ated promises to be good, a small boy ot
the family was allowed to be present at
the "doings," as be expressed it. v\ lien
the wine-drinking stage of the proceed
ings was leached. the youthful son of
Ilia father forgot all about his promises,
and wanted wine.
'•You can't have wine, Charlie," said
the doting mamma, as she stroked the
silken hair of her darling, and whis
pered in Ins child-like oar that he
would "spill it on his clothes." The
promising youngster glanced down at a
very pretty little pair of wine-colored
knickerbockers in which his fat limbs
were encased, and as his eye lit upon
their shapely proportions and attractive
color, his lace became suddenly illumi
nated with the dawn of a new idea.
"Mamma." he said, "if you don't give
me some wine I'll tell."
"What will you tell?" asked the
mother in a fond whisper.
••About my pants," was the reply.
"Well, it you do 1 shall slap you, and
you won't like that, will you?"
* The youngster was quiet for a few
minutes, but soon broke out again, and
clamored loudly for wine.
"You shall have no wine," said the
head of the house, in a determined
"Well, 111 tell, then."
The ladies present were just itching
to hear what the precocious youngster
had to tell, and one smiling on the boy
said, "That's right: you tell on them if
they won't give jou any wine."
"Well, then," howled the malicious
little imp, "my new pants are made out
of ma's old window curtains, and 1 don't
can 1 who knows it."
Exit mamma and Charlie; loud cries
from the back kitchen, suppressed
laughter from the well-bred coterie in
the dining room.

Edward Maloney, a young man who
arrived at the Merchants' yesterday
from tlie Win neb-ago reservation, where
he has been employed as government
butcher, is in a hard fix. While en

A cute yonng man who was walking
down Seventh street yesterday, in com
pany with a very pretty girl, undertook
to take a reef in the sails of a very
hinaU bootblack, who, with his grimy
little bare feet, was trudging along
ahead of the couple, with his blacking
box over his shoulder. From the rear
of the youngster's dilapidated panta
loons there penetrated a section of shirt
tail, which ilutteied in the breeze, and
caused the Chicago young man consid
erable merriment. With the delightful
air of bonhommie for which Chicago
young men are noted, he accosted the
street Arab thus: ..«*..„
'•Say, little boy, how far is it to Rag

The little urchin entered into the
spirit of the joke at once, aud, turning
lialf-way round, replied:
"Slide down through that collar o'
yours, cull, an' yer'll be right iv the
heart of the city."
Chicago young man all broke up.

THE FATAL SUBJECT.

Added to the Increasing
Chief Inspector Clausen Sug
gests Changes in the
When the common council convened
last night the aldermen were firmly re
solved to stick to routine business.
They fell down at an early stage of the
game, however. The electric motor
bugaboo bobbed up unexpectedly, and
beforejany one expected anything wrong
the city fathers stumbled over a com
munication from Archbishop Ireland
and Thomas Cochran Jr., and were
hopelessly lost. The document that
precipitated the trouble reads as fol
To the Honorable the Common Council of
the City of St. I'aul: The undersigned re
spectfully represent that in advocating the
use ot electricity upon certain lines of slreet
railway in which they feel an especial inter
est, and which have "been already indicated
to your honorable body, they did not antici
pate the complications which have arix-n
with respect to this subject, and which have
produced considerable delay as well as un
certainty with respect to the success of the
plan which they have hitherto favored.
They desire much that a plan may
be arrived at which may at
once produce practical results and be free
from present complications. They feel that
much would be accomplished practically if
tin- electric system could be fairly tested by
immediate exoerimeots, and have obtained
the consent of the St. Panl City Railway
company to make such tests within the lines
favored by us, and winch are set forth in the
formula of a resolution which we herewith
Thomas Cociucan Jr.
To the communication was attached
the following resolution, by Aid. bulli
Resolved. That permission is hereby
granted to the st. Paul City Railway cont
pany for the purpose of experimenting m
the "use of electric power on the street rail
way service of Siiid company upon and
within the limits of the following lines in
the city of St. Paul, viz: on Fifth street,
from Smith street to Wabasha street; on
Wabasha street, from Fourth street to Sev
enth street; on Seventh street to Tu^carora
avenue; on Randolph street, from
Seventh street in a continuous line to
the Mississippi river; on Ramsey street
to Oakland avenue, on Oakland avenue from
Ramsey street to Grand avenue, from thence
in a continuous line to the Mississippi river;
to place and erect in the said streets the
necessary poles, wires and appliances used
for similar purposes, to the satisfaction of
the- city engineer, and to operate the proper
cur.' for such service within the period of six
months from the approval of this: resolution :
provided, that if such experiments shall not
prove satisfactory to the city council the said
poles, wires and appliances may be removed
at any time within one year by order o£ the
common council of said city.
THEY WERE HEARD.
When the clerk finished reading the
communication and resolution Aid. Sul
livan suggested that the petitioners be
heard, as both occupied seats in the
chamber. This was Aid. Fisher's op
portunity to object. His first objection
was a mild one— so mild that it had lit
tle effect. He was next heard from in
no uncertain voice.
"1 object to any snap game of that
kind, as a special meeting of the coun
cil lias already been set apart to con
sider these matters. I object !"
"A snap game" was just what he
called it, but Aid. Sullivan wouldn't
have it'that way. Aid. Sullivan wanted
to hear the bishop. Whether the other
aldermen did or not was a conundrum,
as they were duml) as oysters on the
subject. Aid. Fisher forced the matter
to a vote, and had the satisfaction of de
claring himself alone against granting
J3ishop Ireland and Mr. Coenrau an
audience. Aid. Weber, who acted as
chairman in the absence of both the
president and vice president, de
clared that the gentlemen should be
heard. Aid. Fisher still object
ed, but they were heard, notwith
standing. Both of them unred the
passage of the resolution, Archbishop
Ireland claiming that it is essentially
necessary to test the practicability of
the use of electricity in St. Paul. It is
an experiment, he claimed, and might
prove useless in this climate. For that
reason he urged that a test should be
made during the winter months to
avoid the possible covering of the streets
with a network of worthless railways.
Mr. Cochran's remarks were of the same
tenor. At the close of their remarks
Aid. Sullivan moved the passage of the
resolution, claiming that it would be
unwise to pass the resolution in
the absence of several members of the
council, and also that there were not
sufficient members present to do so le
trally. Corporation Attorney Holinan,
when called upon, did not think the
council could pass such a resolution, as
it gave, the company rights to lay track
and operate lines on Grand avenue and
Randolph street, which is practically
what is proposed in their ordinances.
Such privileges could be granted on any
of the company's existing lines, he
thought, were it not lor the fact that
the resolution provided for the obstruc
tion of streets with poles. On motion
of Aid. Cullen the communication and
resolution were laid upon the table, to
be taken up at the special meeting next
Monday to consider railway franchises.
ANOTHER STREET I'.AII.WAY SCHEME
was brought up by Aid. Sanborn, who
introduced an ordinance supplemental
to the ordinance authorizing the con
struction of the Selby avenue cable
line. It provides for the extension of
the Selby avenue line from St. Albans
street to Fairview avenue, and stipu
lates that the line shall be completed
and in operation by Nov. 1, 1890.
Passage of the ordinance was
urged in a- communication from
a large number of Selby avenue prop
erty owners, who stated that they had
raised the necessary ?100,000 bonus, and
had the company's assurance that but a
single fare of live cents would be
charged on the entire line. On motion
of Aid. Sanborn the ordinance received
its second reading, and was made an
order for the special meeting next Mon
S. and O. Kipp, John 15. St. Aubin.
Louis N". Dion, Alfred Dufrene. .1. W.
Cooper and H. T. Sattleralso petitioned
for a franchise to a company to be
named in future. The proposed line is
on Rice street, from its intersection
with Minneapolis avenue to Maryland
street, to Park avenue, to University
avenue, to Cedar street, to Second
street. The matter was also made an
order for the special meeting next Mon
But little routine business was trans
acted. Two vetoes were received from
Mayor Smith. The first was Aid. San
born's resolution prohibiting base ball
playing within one square of the inter
section of Grotto street with Summit
avenue. His veto of the resolution au
thorizing the city engineer to have the
necessary dredging done in front of the
levee at the foot of Jackson street, at a
cost not to exceed S2OO, resulted in a re
consideration of the resolution, which
was afterwards laid upon the table to
be taken up at the next meeting.
Health Commissioner Hoyt petitioned
for authority to increase his present
force by the appointment of a milk and
dairy inspector, at a salary not to ex
ceed 8100 per month. Should his re
quested be granted he also asks au
thority to appoint Henry Meyerding as
health oilicor, to succeed I. B. B.
Heard, who would probably be made
dairy inspector. The communication
and the accompanying resolution were
referred to the committee on streets.
An ordinance was introduced to ex

the committee on streets.
The German Turnverem addressed a
communication to the council, asking
them to establish and maintain a public
natatorium, where laboring people and
the poorer classes could have bathing
privileges. It was referred to the com
mittee on streets.
GRAND GRADE CHANGES
Suggested to the Commission by
Chief Inspector Clausen.
The railroad and warehouse commis
sioners met yesterday for the purpose
of considering the establishment of the
state grain grades for the coining crop
year. A meeting is held once a year to
allow interested parties to make sug
gestions or complaints regarding the
established grades, and to establish new
ones if necessary. There was no one
present who advocated any changes,
with the exception of Chief Inspector
Clausen, who submitted a written rec
ommendation for several minor changes.
He also submitted a letter explaining
his reasons for recommending the
changes. The letter was an elaborate
one and full of interesting details. The
following are the changes iv the grades
which he advocated:
CHIEF CLAUSEN'S KKCOMMENDATIOXS.
Northern white wheat, No. 1 northern
white wheat, shall be sound, well cleaned,
plump and composed of the northern varie
ties of white wheat.
No. 2 northern white shall be sound,
reasonably clean, and composed of the north
ern varieties of white wheat.
No 8 northern white shall comprise nil
northern white wheat fit for warehousing.
weighing not less than fifty- four pounds to
the measured bushel, and not sound enough
or otherwise unfit for the higher grades.
Rejected northern white shall be northern
white wheat fit tor ■warehousing, but unlit
for higher grades.
No grade shall compromise nil and any
grain that is in a heating condition, too
dump to be safe for warehousing, or that is
bin-burnt, exceedingly dirty or otherwise un
fit for store.
. Change rule for No. 3 oats so as to read:
"No. 3 oats shall be all oats that are slightly
damp or slightly musty," etc. '
The same change is advised in regard to
No. 3 rye.
The letter and recommendations sub
mitted by Mr. Clausen were placed on
tile a na will be considered at a future
meeting. It is very likely that the
changes will be adopted. Following is
HIS REASONS FOR IT.
Gentlemen: The new grades of white
wheat seem to be imperatively demanded, in
view of the fact that there is a preemptible
large increase in the receipts over the past
years of wheat grown in Montana, Oregon,
Idaho and Washington at the terminal points
of the Minneapolis & Duluth. While there
are a number of varieties of this Glass of
grain, it is all practically of the same milling
value and possesses similar characteristics,
being of a white color and possessing more
or less gluten in its composition, being in this
respect superior to the white winter wheat of
more southern latitudes. Our grades of
spring and winter wheat are not therefore
applicable to the class of wheat in question,
and the inspection department has, for the
past crop season, suffered more or less em
barrassment in its attempts to properly class
ify this class of wheat. In the absence of
specific grades, we have placed this grain in
our white winter grades. This has led to
more or lezs criticism, as it has been claimed
by many that the wheat is spring
sown and cannot therefore be properly
classified as winter wheat, while others
maintained almost as emphatically that it is
winter-sown wheat. A thorough investiga
tion of the subject develops the fact that the
seeding is done anywhere from January to
May m each s oar, thus apparently vindicat
ing the claim of both sides, that whether
winter or spring-sown there is no appreciable
difference in the appearance, quality or mill
ing value of the different classes, and it
would seem advisable under the circum
stances to waive the question of distinction
as to the matter of time sown and place it ail
in one general class or grade of white wheat.
No other market in the country has a grade
of this kind, the nearest approach to it be
ing the '•California white." In recommend
ing a general inspection of all non-warehouse
grain as "no grade," I dojso with the object
of securing a uniform classification of any
and nil grain that is out of condition and un
fit for store. I would suggest the elimination
of rules for no-grade corn and spring wheat,
ami the substitution of one general rule, or
classification to be called "no-grade grain,"
and to cover all and any classes of grain unfit
for store. .Respectfully yours,
•■: :.'": A. C. Clauses.
Before the commission adjourned
three deputy inspectors recommended
by Chief Inspector Clausen were ap
pointed. They were Nelson Iloopie, of
Duluth: George 11. Tunell, of Crooks
ton; and J. C. Hammond, of Morris.
A BURGLARIOUS EPIDEMIC
Causes Dayton's Bluff Citizens to
Talk of Vigilantes.
People living on Dayton's bluff, in the
vicinity of the Burlington freight yards,
have been greatly troubled for some
time past by petty thieves. They have
been constantly annoyed by little jobs
that were evidently the work of tramps.
Michael Needham, living at the corner
of Hester street and Burns avenue, re
ports that he was awakened about 3
o'clock Monday morning by a man who
was ransacking his bedroom. The thief
was frightened away before he secured
any plunder. John Berber's residence,
in the same vicinity, was entered by
two men an hour later, but there, also,
they were discovered and driven
away before any harm was done.
Mr. Berger's nine-year-old daughter
was badly frightened. She was awak
ened by one, of the men in her room,
and attempted to cry out, when the
fellow clutched her by the throat and
prevented her screaming. Her mother
was awakened by the other man, and
made so much noise that they were both
glad to escape empty-handed. Though
the Margaret street "police officers re
peatedly arrest all tramps found in the
Burlington yards, the force allowed by
the city to patrol the district is so small
that it is impossible to prevent the out
rages complained of. Citizens of the
district threaten summary vengeance,
and, it is said, will organize a vigilance
committee. _ __

at Lake View Sept.
At the Fifth Tournament of
the M. N. G. Rifle Asso
The second day of the rifle contest at
Fort Snelling yesterday was begun, in
the teeth of a gale which blew across
the downs at a speed of nineteen miles
an hour, and made accurate skirmish
shooting, which is difficult under any
circumstances, still more difficult. As
on the previous day, there was a very
fair attendance of spectators of both
sexes, and the interest in the scores
made by the blue-clad marksmen was
none the less though the brisk wind
/ • ■•■■-■
prevented the making of such scores as
would otherwise have been shown. The
light was also very poor during the
time between 9 and 11 a. m., and alto
gether the weather which prevailed
yesterday could not be regarded as con
ducive to high scores. The highest score
of the day was made by Sergeant Scully,
of Company H, Fifteenth infantry, with
a run of 120 of a possible '200. The scores
for the day and two days' totals are as
