CLUB OF_UOWARa Half of the World Does Not Know How the Other Half Kills. Weapons That Do Their Ter rible Work With Little Noise. A Symposium of Sandbag-, Billy, Slungshot and Knuckles. Weapons of Which St. Paul Has Seen Almost No Work. Tlic sandbag is emphatically the weapon of the coward. The category includes the knife, slungshot, billy, iron bar, brass knuckles, club and sandbag. The lurking footpad lying in wait for the prosperous citizen homeward bound after a lons sitting at the club wants a weapon that will stun and make no noise. The crack of a pistol might alarm some vigilant policeman, a blow from a heavy wooden club might add murder to the crime of robbery, and a murder always makes so much fuss in the community that the perpetrator is nearly certain to be caught, so he uses - A GBOUP OF BILI.IER. a sand club. But it has chanced that this deadly weapon has had very little range in St. Paul. So far as known, there has been but one ease of genuine sandbagging within the past year— that is to say one case in which it was actually shown the coward's weapon was used. That was when J. W. Best, a Globe proof reader, was assaulted by thugs on Cedar street, near Tenth, and relieved of the numerous valuables al ways secreted about the person of a newspaucr man. As a matter of fact, St. Paul is one of tho few large cities of the union that has not a large and variegated collection of niur derous-looking weapons, from the bull dog of the burglar to the iron bar of the highbindei, in the cus tody of the police. Chief Clark's aggre gation consists only of an assortment of pistols and revolvers known to the po lice aw "guns." ranging from Hip pearl handled, silver-mounted toy pistol of the fancy woman, to the self-acting '•44" carried by the fly-bob himself. Supt. McGinn, of the Pinkerton force, knows more of these life-destroyers and —paradoxically enough—life-preserv ers, than mostinen in St. Paul, gathered during a long experience, which in cluded the bully mate of New York, the desperado Of Texas, and the highbinder of Sat Francisco. The study ot the weapons of cowards and hoodlums is a serviceable part of the policeman s business. Each class of criminals has its own style of weapon. and the wound, which discloses the in- I.A.TKST IN SLUN« SHOTS. Htrument with which it was maue. oiten furnishes the first "clew to the identity of the assailant. Thus, a blow from a sand club would point unerringly to the work of a footpad, while one froni a Blungshot would indicate that the sailor crimp had been at worK, just as plainly as an ordinary knife stab would point to a hoodlum quarrel. If the weapon is left behind, as is often the case, the police can determine almost with cer tainty the character of the man who wielded it. A curious slungshot. shown in the the picture, was seen by a reporter. It was made l>y a sailor. The handle is a stick of wood; the head is made of sheets of tin foil which once served to pack Bne-cul tobacco, and the covering is an old dove-colored kid glove, which once graced the dainty hands of some fair lady, for the size. s}£, which is plainly marked on a remnant of the kid, shows that the wearer was nut ac customed to hard worK. Two fingers of the glove are stretched over the stick, the knob is covered with the palm and part of the back, and the remaining fingers were cut into strips and wound round the handle, and terminate in a thong. The two "billies" shown together in our picture are good representatives of that kind of weapon. They are bars of TWO KNIVES— ONE SHEATH. iron covered with plaited leather, whioh is woven into a flexible handle, termi nating in a loop, with which it can be attached to the wrist of the user. The slinking footpad who wishes to reduce his victim to insensibility finds the sandbag the most available weapon. The victim seldom knows what struck him. lie is stunned, and if it happens that he took a social glass before atari THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBEr S Off DAY MORNING, JANUARY 12, 1890. —SIXTEEN PAGES. •ng homeward, the police surgeon can be rHi«'d upon to diagnose the case as alcoholism. The sandbag is a French invention, and is unequaled for the speedy reduc tion of the victim to an unconscious state. If properly made it leaves no mark, the yielding nature of the weapon deadening the blow and distributing the force over a large surface 1 rather than concentrating it at a point, as the lead and wood clubs do. The pair of ten-inch knives are of Chinese manufacture. The blades are forged out of old files, the handle? are made of a brass casting sawed in half, and both fit a single sheath made of pa- GKOIT OF KXITCKIX-DITSTERS. per and wrapped with red cloth. They are murderous-looking weapons; and, from the i ust upon one of them, may well have played star parts in a trag edy. The four favorite kinds of knuckles are shown in the accompanying pict ure.' Though it is a crime to carry them, they are all sold openly in the gun stores. Two are of cast iron and two of cast brass, the most dangerous of the lot being a plain arc of brass, with four holes for the fingers. They were once the property of criminals who were foolisn enough to . have them in their pockets wh«n committing minor offenses. None of them ever did any serious damage. HISTORY OF ST. PAUL. Story of a Remarkable City, With Biogaphical sskctch.es of I'roiui neat Men. So rapid has been the growth of St. Paul, so many events have been crowded into the half century of its ex istence, that a succinct, reliable history of the city is invaluable to the library of every business and professional man. Such a history has been a long felt want in St. Paul, for, although much lias been written about the city and the eariy settlers, it was of so fragmentary character as to be ut terly devoid of any practical value. At last, however a complete history of St. Paul, with illustrations and biograph ical sketches 01 its prominent men and pioneers, has been published by D. Mason & Co., of Syracuse. N. Y. The history displays careful research, and the story ot the unprecedented progress of St. Paul, its niunicipal government, manufacturing interests and marked ed ucationalists is told in a clear and interesting way. Gen. C. C. Andrews, a painstaking, scholarly historian is the editor of the history, and his assistants include the Rev. £. D. Neill. D. D.; Hon. H. F. Stevens and Prof. J. Fletcher Williams. Dr. Neill con tributes the first four chapters, com prising the early history of the city, which, as an early settler, he is ad mirably fitted to write on. The four chapters are entitled: "The Vicinity of St. Paul During the French Occupa tion;" "British Traders in Minnesota," and "Vicinity of St. Paul From the Establishment of a Military Post Until Its Incorporation as a City." Mr. Stevens contributes the chapter on the "Bench and Bar." and Prof. Will iams gives an authentic account of "The Press." Both chapters are ad mirably written, and their intrinsic value lies in the short, smart,pithy pict ures of the past and present veterans in law and journalism. A tabulated list of the leading events in the history of St. Paul from the year 1854 is a feature of the volume. Excellent as is the general outline of the history, the biographical sketches and illustra tions are in themselves superb works of art, and the data of the lives of the men who have made St. Paul all that it is to day must be hailed with the heartiest appieciation of a later generation. BUSY DAY WiTH. THEM. Promoters of the Educational Convention are Kept Hustling. Yesterday was a busy day at head quarters of the National Educational association. Mr. Hazzard, of the Trans portation committee, having returned from Chicago after securing all he asked for from the railroad meeting there, was busy sending out to the passenger agents and the managers of the Nation al Educational association information regarding reduced rates. The commit tee on hotels and entertainment met at Bp. m. There were present L. J. Dob ner, chairman; C. E. Marvin, George Thompson and P. T. Kavanagh. The resignation of Thomas Cochran Jr. as a member of the committee was presented and accepted. The committee directtd Mr. Marvin as a subcommittee to se cure contracts with hotels of the city, and report at the next meeting. The question of adding five ladies to the committee was deferred until the next meeting. D. W.. Walker, secretary of the lowa state committee of the N. E. A., was present and made application for the entertainment of the lowa dele gation during the convention. The committee on entertainment adjourned to meet next Saturday at 3p. m. The finance committee have sent out to the citizens a postal card reminder, calling attention of those who have so far failed to respond to the previous request for contributions. SET HIS JLEG. Practical Joke Played by a Party of Drummers. Charlie Ilofer, one of Marder-Luse's gay young tourists, tells a good story on Ed Clayton, who represents Ensinger & Co., of Chicago. Both of them were in Helena a few weeks ago, and meeting three or four other fellows of the frater nity they shook hands, yours across, and passed a resolution to paint the town vermillion. Clayton had never been in Helena before, and he took whisky several times. He became un conscious about 1 a. m. ana Hofer evolved the brilliant scheme which he and the rest of the party carried out. Clayton was carried to the hotel, and a doctor was found who put his left leg in a plaster mould. When the victim of the joko got sobered up he was told that he had fallen out of a hack and broken his leg. Clayton be lieved the story until he had been in bed twelve hours, when the porter came to his room, ststing that the other fel lows had pulled out on the early train after giving him $5 to break the news and the plaster. Clayton is now on the trail, thirsting for gore. DUTIES OP A YEAR. Heavy Increase in Collections by Customs Officers. The collection of customs at the St. Paul office tor the year 1889 shows a substantial increase over that of the preceding year, as may be seen from the following comparison: The duties col lected at St. Paul for 1889 amount to $229,380.12; for 18S8 there was collected $177,680.89, an increase for 1889 of $51, --089.23. There was collected from all sources in the district of Minnesota outside of St. Paul in ISB9, $252,895.35; in 1888, $210,328, an in crease of $41,907.35. The value of dutia ble imports for the year 1889 was 572G, --477; for the year 1888 it was 5442,527.54; increase. $283,949.10. The value of free goods for ISS9 was 372.372; for 188S, 5350.810.40, an increase of $15.561.«0. 1 The value of domestic exports for the year 1889 was $1,400,479; for JBSS it was rJ70,1G9, an increase vi $130,340. IT'S DIFFERENT NOW. With Duster for Scepter the Servant Girl Rules the World. Not the Tariff, but "Who Is Mistress?" Is the Great j Problem. Queens of the Kitchen Whose Sway Includes the Whole Mansion. St. Paul Cases Pointing the Moral If Not Adorning the Tale. Ancient history records a popular say ing that the child of Themlstocles rifled the world, the process of reasoning being that the child ruled Its mother, she ruled Theniistocles,he ruled Athens, Athens ruled Greece and Greece ruled the world. In modern times, and in. this country, the expression would have to be slightly changed, for the servant girl rules the whole family. Whatever her nationality may be, she seems to understand that she is the true mistress of the household. Time was when servant girls had grievances, when they could complain of harsh treatment , .wi yy/X /£k Tr ENTEKTAtXS ITF.U FRIEND. When they were exposed to ever y kind of annoyance, but that was in an other country and in a former century. The vital question of the age Is not so much the tariff, nor the subject of silver, as "Servant-galism: or What's to become of the Mistress." The servant girl of the present time knows her own rights perfectly and is always ready to assert them. They may dif fer in oil other respects but every one of them realizes her power. The wise housekeeper when she once gets a realiable servant girl tries to OTTT KCIR A PROMEXAIVE. '. mate herons ot the leading institu tions of the house, for if she has had many years experience as a housekeep er, she knows how much suffering can be caused by the servant girl who is willing to do nothing and who only wants the earth on a silver plate in payment for it. The eye of the veteran servant girl lights up with a sort of cruel joy when she looks into the face of a very new housekeeper who was a bride only a few weeks before, and who now knows rather less about the chemistry of bread baking than a young sparrow would. The servant girl, who, by the way, is not always as much of a" girl as that name would imply, sizes up the young housekeeper in an instant and recog nizes her prey. In the ordiuarv rela tions between employer and employe, if anybody assumes a dictatorial manner, it is the employer. Here the case is en tirely reversed. :■".'-.■:, The young housekeeper, trembling and nervous, answers in the most satis factory manner in her power the strict and stern questions which the . servant girls put to her, questions relating to stationary washtubs. Sunday out and "followers." It is always the servant girl who dictates the terms. Some times the young housekeeper gets a servant girl who is reliable, polite and industrious. In such a case the latter is "a thing of beauty and a joy for ever:" but servant girls of that kind are very scarce. Some times she is too fond of literature. When the young mother goes out to pay a visit, and leaves the saby in charge of the servant girl, per haps she will carefully watch over the infant, and then again perhaps she won't. Quite as likely as not. while she is absorbed in the loves of Mortimer ami Clarissa, the baby is engaged in falling out of its crib, crawling into the fire, or eating something which is apt to disa gree with its anatomy. Some servant girls are rough jewels, but others are very uncertain. The sunimniit of "un certainty"' was shown in St. Paul not long ago when a servant, who had been sent to give a baby an airing in a per ambulator, quietly wheeled the child to her own home and left it there while she took her own infant sister for an airing in the same carriagel^The lady of the house, sometimes when she goes into the kitchen.

Ordinarily she would be frightened, but is reassured wnen she reflects that it is only Norah's "company." In such cases does the average American housekeeper get angry and reprove Norah?

FOOTLIGHT AND FOYER. The production of a new Kiralfy spec tacle is always a most interesting event, and nence the initial presentation here of Bolossy Kiralfy's latest and greatest effort, "The Water Queen," will be likely to pack the Newmarket theater to the doors to-morrow night. It comes to us with the prestige of a long and successful run at Niblo's. New York, and the promise is made that not one iota of the snlendor which distinguished it there shall be diminished. We are to have all the elaborate and astonishing mechanical effects and all the gorgeous sceneiy painted by Carpezat, of Paris, Magnini, of Milan, and our own Ameri can artists. Harley Merry and Maeder & Schaetler, as well as all the dazzling costumes, many of which were imported. The grand ballets will be a decided feature. They are inventions of Mr. Kiralfy, and are described as ex ceedingly novel, picturesque and in genious. They will be executed by a superb corps do ballet, led by the ac complished premiere Mile. Francescina Paris. "The Water Queen" is a fan tastic fairy spectacle in four acts, by Robert Griffin Morris, with much in it that will remind the spectator of the pantomimes which amuse the Londoners during Hie Cnristmas holidays. It is altogether pure and unobjectionable, with an excellent plot dealing with the wickedness of an evil spirit, which puts iv peril the happiness of a pair of mortal lovers, who are protected and ultimately saved by a good fairy. The strong dramatic cast includes Misß Helen Sedgwick, Rose Ridgway. Alice Gilbert, Maud Uickeson and Messrs. Jo Halliwell, Walter Ey tinge, Harry Dicke son and Herman Waldo. Numerous specialties are presented throughout the performance, including Carmeucita, the renowned .Spanish dancer, the Tissots. living marionettes; the Pialras, Spanish gymnasts; Frank La Mondue in his laughable clown wire act. ana Arnold Kiralfy in his grotesque specialty. The stellar attraction of the year is announced by Manager Dean, of the Harris theater, for next week. "Captain Swift," a thrilling play of the "Jim the Penman" school, but superior in qual ity, is the most popular of recent, Madi son Square successes, and may justly be regarded as one of A. M. Palmer's pets." When it was first put on in Lon don, it created a positive furor, and ran for 300 nights. A. M. Palmer then opened the season with it at the Madison Square theater, where it attracted crowds during the same length of time. The story, from the pen of Haddon Chambers, Is atonce pathetic and tragic. It cits th.^ case of an Intrepid Australian outlaw.known to the Queens land police and the fearful populace as '•Captain Switt." 'He Oalks them at every turn and finally turns up in elite society, where he is lionized and en joys the sweets of respectability. There he falls in love with a beautiful woman, who inspires him with an honest pas sion. Their engagement follows, but in the mlrlst of their happiness the gal lant bushranger is run to earth, and his death ends the thrilling story. The part of '"Captain Swift" is admirably played by Arthur H. Forrest, thebright est of young stars. He com^s from a long run at the Madison Square thea ter, and avails himself of the manifold opportunities provided by the role in such a manner as to take his audiences by storm. In the stronger scenes he is in his element and devel ops power that is electric. He is ably assisted by an exceptionally strong company, headed by Miss Rosa Rand. Miss Rand's reputation has not flooded the West, but in New York and other Eastern cities, where she has pursued her bright career, she is acknowledged to be an actress of experience, power and finish. At one time she was lead ing lady of the Brooklyn Park theater stock company playing to stars like Booth, McCullough, Janauschek. An derson and others. The remaining members of Air. Forrest's support are eminently capable, and "Captain Swift" will have the large patronage it de serves. That Inimitable combination oC wit, humor and pathos. Bill Nye and .lames Whitcomb Riley, will give one of their unrivaled entHitainmpnts at the Peo ple's church on Jan. 21, the sixth even ing of the Star course; and if yon want to lengthen your days by a goodly amount, go and have a good laugh over Bill Nye's yarns and Riley's dialect stories. So unique a combination as these two has never before existed, and probably it would be impossible to find two individuals so well fitted as they to entertain an audience. Their success this year with their new programme has been even greater than that of last year, though those who laughed over them till they ached last season may deem it hardly possible. The advance sale of seats begins on Monday morning; and the only way not to get left, as some 500 did when they appeared here last season, is to get your seats as early as possible. On Tuesday last ilerr Aamolcl. with Manager Thrane, left the city for the East. The Aamold com pany will leave Eau Claire about the 20th inst for an Eastern tour extending to New York. On Jan 17th a concert will be given at the opera house in Eau Claire, which, from the force of announcement, promises to be a notable event in the social spheres of that entire district. The preparations are elaborate, and the details many for bringing together all the music-lovers of that section. The opera house will he beautifully decorated with flowers and bunting, and if other designs of the management are perfected, the fete will be a memorable one in the his tory of Eau Claire. The company is fast gaining the recognition duo it, and will "soon be augmented by a distin guished contralto— a lady of pronounced ability a? a vocalist. Miss Ellen Beach j Yaw still lends the charm of her voice and beauty to the Aaniold entertain ments. Tho urgent invitation which her tutor has extended to continue her studies in Paris, where the hospitality of such singers as Christine Nillson, Patti Nicoiina and others is always gen erous to Miss Yaw, has been referred to a later consideration. While here Miss Yaw was the guest of several prominent families, and Hert Aamold was wined and (lined most liberally. The submarine world, the buried con tinents, the submerged cities, of which Mr. Donnelly speaks in his famous book, Atlantis, were not hid so secure in the depths of the ocean that they could never be discovered. Man's geu his has at last overcome the most baf fling obstacles nature has put in his way. A submarine boat has been in vented; a vessel that will sail as se curely beneath the ocean as ships sail on its surface. That boat will be on exhibition at the St. Paul museum next week. It is an interesting machine, constructed to meet the most gigantic difficulties, and is the latest triumph of man's power over nature. It is a fulfillment of the prophecy that Jules Verne, the romancer, made a few years ago, when he wrote his famous story. "Ten Thou sand Leagues Under the Sea," and de scribed the strange adventures of the craft that was built to sail under the sea. The boat will be on exhibition In the curio hall, and among 1 the other curios ities is Tibinigueeshie. the Ojibua phenomenon. A little Indian midget, twenty-two years old. and thirty-two inches high. weighing fifty-four pounds. Then there is Amelia Hill, a veritable mountain of flesh, and Edward Willis, world-famous as the livintr half-man. On the upper stage Donan and Fleury will give a new and clever specially performance, and on tbe lower stage Lonnonolli'tt Parisian Folly company will appear. "Nadjy" will be given again to-night at the Newmarket, as the farewell per formance. Salvini is underlined for the Newmarket for the first half of next week. Lottie Swan's Female Minstrels will form the principal attraction at the Olympic this week, and a bright and pleasine show is promised.

"Hemlandet," the Swedish weekly, indulges in its last issue in the following comic erowl at the political situation: Many winds have blows since the Hauilandet lirst had occasion to voice the public sentiment of the Swedish-Americans as regards the Min nesota federal appointments to be made; and during this time many Scandinav ians have been mentioned as possible successors to Mr. Bierman in the col lectorship of internal revenue, two of whom have even been Swedish Americans. Of these, Capt. Os born, who was unanimously endorsed by the Swedish-American Press, and very nearly the whole Scandinavian delegation in the last legislature, seems to have been side tracked some time ago, and now Marcus Johnson is re n ported also about, to be snowed down in the fierce political tempest sweeping the North Star state and stands like an abandoned train in the snowbanks of Scandinavianism. The .Swedish-Ameri cans enjoy at least the privilege of having been alon:r i:i the blizzard some where near the storm center; but when the skies clear and the sun shines mildly down from the canopy of the Washing ton ian appointment bureau, they (the Swedish-Americans) will stand thero airaiu if present rumors are true indica tions of coming! events, with lengthened proboscis, and to stimulate their cour age we suggest that they take up the looty and patriotic refrain: "Down went McGinty to the bottom of the sea,' not forgetting that he was dressed in his best 'Sunday-co-to-nieeting elotnes.'"

Coi/cmbus, 0., Jan. 11.— There have been no new developments to-day rela tive to the alleged senatorial bolt which has been in contemplation, looking to the defeat of Calvin S. Brice. the caucus nominee. A large number of Demo crats, some of them prominent, have been interviewed, and they expressed the one opinion that there would be no bolt, and cla in the three men who remained out of the caucus cannot afford to aid in the defeat of Brice. Nearly every Democrat who has been talked to on the subject believes the members, with the possible exception of Smith, will vote for tlie caucus nominee. No expression has been secured direct from eit'ier of. the three men who re mained o%it of the caucus. So many prominent Democrats, including Judge Thurman, have expressed themselves against a bolt ot the caucus that it is concluded that the members cannot withstand the pressure which will bo brought to bear in the way of sentiment of a party character between this time and next Wednesday. Governor-elect Campbell arrived this evening. IN FAR CATHAY. It dally meets my dreamy eyes. That old worl<t Bccne by further seas, And all unchanged: the water sighs Still in that bay, and still the breeze Sings low, sweet'songs amid the trees. Ilere stands a bouse, quaint, shadowed o'er By clustering brancnes; wavelets fill The river whispering uear the door; That while patu meets the threshold Elill, And birds chirp love with bill to bill. That rude oM bridge still spans the stream ; The passers few are passing yet; The t>oat is there— it doth me t*eein 1 The sailors — mayhap forget— For ne'er was mul since furled or set. The bay spreads out— clear, placid, bright— - A summer sea, fringed round witn green; Afar some isle, mayhap, In sight Kising from out its breast is seen. And houses mirror in itn sheen.
