the Tramp Room at the Cen
tral Station and Its Oc
Eow Jailor Eradley's Nightly
Horde of Visitors Is Ac
Working 1 Free Lunches by
Day and Trusting to
Luck at Night.
One Place Where the Man
Yvithout Money May Find
a Bed.
"Go through that door, down the
stairs, turn the lower knob on Hie first
ioor to the right, and don't forget to
clomj both doors alter you."
The above is the regular stereotyped
speech made by Jailor Peter Bradley at
tin' centra] station, Minneapolis, on an
ivurage of twenty-five times every
nii-iit. That is the way he directs
''bums'' and tramps who apply to him
for lodging. Minneapolis takes pretty
Sood care of ttie unfortunate devils,
who, on bitter cold nights, are forced to
sick shelter. The tramp room, as it is
called, is upon the basement Uoor of the
lock-up buildinir. and although it is
Dot fitted up with spring mattresses
and dressing cases, it is far
preferable than the open air when the
thermometer 1° many degrees below
zero. During the winter Officer Brad
ley has on an average thirty lodgers at
night, although on several occasions he
has given shelter to fifty. They are of
all types of physical manhood and
nationalities. Among their numbers
can be found the Bta'wart backwoods
man, only in a few days airo from the
pineries, who has spent his last dime
for a drink, and who. in the morning,
will probably be. shipped back through
one of the employment agencies, to the
sickly tramp, whose palid face and tren
eral debilitated appearance, coupled
with the statement that bethinks he has
typhoid fever, brings Police Surgeon
Matcham to the station in a hurry and
finally ends in his removal to the city
hospital. Some of Mr. Bradley ? s guests
have no doubt seen better days. Their
every appearance points to that fact as
they stand in front of the railing, and
in a respectful and polite way ask for
shelter. Others belong to the class of
men wno are designated by the railroad
brakemen as ••tramps" and "hobos,"
and who are never happy unless en
joying themselves at someone else's ex
pense. Too lazy to work and two cow
ardly to steal, unless they are sure, they
can escape with their plunder, they are
f ' to loaf around the free lunch
— l T3j!\lxl^S^'
They are invanaoly "in hard luck,"
and cannot set work, but the manner
in which they get in their work on the
free lunch counter when some good-na
tured and hall drunken customer will
pay for a glass of beer for them, or, in
the absence of the "angel," as the man
who treats them to a drink is called, the
bartender turns his back, would make
a man who sutlers from dyspepsia
green with envy. They all have a story
to tell. Often it is a pathetic one which
is invented in the hope of creating sym
pathy and perhaps extracting a stray
quarter from the good-hearted listener.
When a tramp is "in luck," that is,
when his story contains enough matnie
tism to draw a dime or a quarter from
his listener's pocket and transfer it to
his own dirty hand, he does not
call on his friend Bradley at
the lockup. That is a place where he
may wear his welcome out, and he may
wake up some morning to hear Capt.
Dan Day remark: "Well, you've been
here so often that 1 guess you will have
to go up stairs." He knows that the
invitation to go up stairs means all the
way from thirty to ninety days in the
workhouse, and he has heard of, and
probably experienced, the stone quarry
In cold weather. When the "bum"
gets hold of any money, however, he is
a very different personage. Then he
stalks about as if he owned not only the
town but also had a chattel mortgage
on the entire solar system. The police
man, who as a rule, he regards as his
most bitter enemy, while he is forced to
lay around the saloons and feed off of
lunch counters.becomes an insignificant
servant of the people when lie can rat

ers' pocket and puif away at a cheap

Jailor Bradley knows them all, and
he doesn't hesitate to tell a man that
applies for lodging that he has been
there a week or a month ago, as the
case may be, and, in his rough way, ask
why they doivt co to work like honest
men. But, under the rough exterior of
the jailor, there is a warm heart, and
he never turns one of them out in the
coid. For their own protection they
are all turned out at 8 o'clock in the
morning. This, experience has taught
tbfl police, is absolutely necessary, as
very often, before this rule was inaug
urated, there was an indiscriminata
trading of hats, coats and shoes, in
which the late riser always had the
worst of it. Now, however, any at
tempt at "trading," without the mutual
consent of the parties interested, is
quickly discovered and Capt. Day acts
as the referee, from whose decision
there is positively no appeal.
Out Few Attended.
Another of the series of lectures pre
pared by the Central Y. M. C. A. took
I place in their parlors last evening* HoUt
I H". b. Tatter speaking upon the subject
of "What is the Love That God Com
mands." In the opening of his ad
dress the speaker referred to the habit
01 looking upon love from its emotional
Side, and I ne fact that we thiiiK of
love as a feeling such as we hold
towards our relatives or friends.
"Such," ue said, "cannot be
the love that God commands
since these emotions arc in a great
measure instinctive and only indirectly
under the control of the will. The love
ti mt God comnrands must be that which
we can voluntarily exercise, in abort
must he our choice between God and
our neighbor. We can only Berve God
f»y serving our fellow-men irrespective
of our feelings to a large extent, and
only when we do this do we embrace
the love that God commands." The at
tendance was limited, but those piesent
expressed their great obligations to Mr.
I'attee for his favor.
An Interesting Talk Upon a
Hijjhly Important Subject.
George Haven Putnam, secretary of
the Authors' and Publishers' Copyright
league, lectured last evening before the
the Union league, upon the proposed
international copyright law. President
Eustis introduced the gentleman as a
descendant of that hero, Israel Putnam,
who went down into the cave to dis
patch the wolf who had been feeding
upon the flocks. '"Now," he said, "Mr.
Putnam will assail the wolf that has
loosed itself in the flower garden of
Mr. Putnam spoke of the interna
tional congress which met in Berne.
Switzerland, at which representatives
of all nations signed an agreement of
copyright to protect the brains of the
several countries, excepting those of
the United States. He at > ted that the
failure of the move so far was owing to
the lack of interest manifested
by the American people, due chiefly
to tin; fact that the newspapers have
not laiked up the matter as they should
have done, lie stated that the general
idea was that such a copyright law
would give a monopoly to authors and
Itublishejs. He explained in this sense
that the only monopoly desired was not
in the subject itself, but in the author's
peculiar manner of stating the subject.
He claimed that the league which he
represented does not seek to so exclude
books of foreign authors, .«o that an
added price would be put upon foreign
books above our own of the same kind ;
but that the foreign books being pub
lished by Americon publishers rto not
cost them anything for manuscript, and
in that way they are enabled to sell so
low as to utterly ruin the incomes of
American authors.
The principal claim for the advan
tages of the measure lay in the asser
tion, that with the international copy
right law, there w>uld be a larger
field protected for tne sale of editions,
and therefore better plates could be
used and the books put upon the
market cheaper, at the same time giv
ing to the author a larger income for the
work of his brain.
He claimed that one cause for a check
to the move had been the tight insti
tuted by some papers using plates and
syndicate matter, who stated that the
bill would interfere with their publica
tions by putting it out of their power to
use this matter, which is mostly taken
from English magazines. He stated
that by a new wording of the bill the
syndicate would not be interfered with.
He claimed also that there were many
English editions that were not published
in America, because they were not of
wide enough interest to have them pub
lished in this country, with the danger
that there would be American comjieti
tion. While one house might make a
profit from the publication, if two
houses should attempt it a loss would
result. For that reason many works of
research, etc., are printed in England
and sold at an almost prohibitory price
in America.
In answer to a question, Mr. Putnam
stated that the English publishers were
even more piratical than their brothers
of America, and cited one case in which
an English house had one of .heir au
thors furnish the last chapter to an
American novel in order to be in ad
vance of their rivals. "To the utter
consternation," said he, of the author,
who had worked the whole moral of his
story into the last chapter."
Mr. Putnam is an entnusiast on the
subject, and has facts and data at his
tongues' end ready to give at a minute's
notice. He gave it as his opinion that
the measure would soon reach a suc
cessful termination, as its advocates are
Ining ground in Washington.
c Severity of the Weather Pre
vents a Large Attendance.
he second session of the Fourth
rd Sunday School institute was held
Jentenary Methodist church yester
■ afternoon. A most interesting dis
course upon "The Teacher's Prepara
tion," and the necessity of study and
care consequent on the responsibility of
the training of children's minds "was
clearly brought out. Rev. D. E. Wells
followed with a discourse upon the
"Benevolence of the Sunday School."
Rev. Frank Peterson was to have
spoken upon the "Influence of the
World's Sunday School Convention
Upon American Emigration." but he
was unable to attend, and Rev. J. T.
Blake volunteered to give his views
upon the subject.
The evening session was opened by
song service, led by Prof. L. C. Jon
houat, and was succeeded by an ad
dress, "The Study of the Bible," by
Henry Plant, which was dealt with in a
very able manner. J. B. McArthur
was to have preceded him, but he was
unable to attend. "Our needs as Teach
ers" was the closing address of the in
stitute, and. as R. H. Jordan was ab
sent, the subject was taken up by Supt.
M. B. Critchett, and was very instruct
ive. On the whole, the institute has
proven a success, but the severity of
the weather the first evening and the
storm last evening materially affected
X attendance.
iter-Fielder Foster Pleads
Guilty to Assaulting a Reporter.
There was a big crowd in the munici

timony which would be brought out in
the case of Elmer Foster, the big cen
ter fielder of the Minneapolis base ball
club, who assaulted O. E. Remey, of the
Tribune, in S. G. Morton & Co.'s store
Monday last. The crowd was disap

The case of Samuel Alexander, who
was arrested on Monday on the charge
of violating the liquor laws, was yester
day dismissed, upon motion of the city
attorney. Albert E. Peterson, a saloon
keeper at B'2'J Washington avenue south,
was not so fortunate. There was no
doubt that he had failed to obey the
ordinance, which says his saloon "must
be closed and kept closed" on Sunday,
and he had to pay a fine of $75 and for
feit his right to a license next year.
F. B. Mills, the proprietor of the

Various Litigation, Chiefly Con
cerning Money Matters.
In the case of The Lebanon Savings
Bank of New Hampshire against F. B.
Penney and John F. Travis, Judge
Young instructed the jury to give a
veruict for the plaintiff. The suit was
a part of the long litigation that has
grown out of the Rush failure. It seems
that 11. J. VViicox was related to Hush,
and his failure put him in straightened
circumstances. Then the New Hamp
shire bank prevailed upon Mr. Penney
to give them a note for the amount of
Wilcox's indebtedness, the latter trans
ferring property to him to secure the
note, he understanding that he was to
hold the property in trust ior the bank.
Penney was willing to surrender the
property and get back his note, but the
judge ruled otherwise, and he will have
to pay the note of $2,192.
The Monitor Plow Works of Minne
apolis and Frank Spatt, of Dessel,
Minn., have filed an application for the
appointment of a receiver for John
Johnson and Frank J. Chevre, who
were in business in Litchfield under the
firm name of Johnson & Chevre. The
complaint alleges that Chevre ab
sconded and left the state of Minne
sota, taking with him money, notes and
accounts of tne firm to an amount ex
ceeding §2.500, and that he also trans
ferred certain property in Meeker
county for the supposed consideration
of *2,000. the transfer being made with
out any valid consideration, for the pur
pose of defrauding the creditors. Also,
that the insolvent has paid to William
Deering & Co., one of their creditors,
large sums of money with intent to pre
fer over the petitioners.
Hill, Hosmer & Co. have instituted
suit for judgment against Abbott &
Clark and Horace C. Henry to recover
for materials and labor used in the erec

being $712.

The Creditors Meet and Discuss
the General Outlook.
About forty creditors of I. Monasch
gathered at the West Side Turner hall
yesterday afternoon to endeavor to
come to an understanding in regard to
the Monasch difficulty. A communica
tion was received from Mr. Monasch,
stating that he had no statement to
make as yet. George llulm, the as
signee, had prepared itemized state
ments of the condition of Mr. Mouasch's
finances, and as a result it is thought
that the creditors will not receive more
than 45 cents on the dollar.
According to the statement of Mr.
Monasch the .value of the property in
the hands of the assignee amounts to
£46,620.62, which, however, is the cost
price. As far as known the liabilities
will amount to some 803,i»73.81, which
would leave an apparent surplus on
hand of 812,646.81. It was stated also
that if sold at present the property
would bring scarcely 50 per cent of its
estimated value. There is on hand re
ceivable Jan. 1, 8576.75. Other
accounts due the company amount
to 81,682.24, of which 8788.12 has
been collected, leaving, a few counter
clai'ns being taken into consideration,
about 8700 still due. Bills of various
kinds, for work accepted, unfinished
and not paid for, amount to 83.895.84.
Those included to Teh. 1 amount to
The expenses for February are esti
mated at 8900 up to and including Feb.
1. on which day the. plant must be re
moved, and on that date there will
probably be 81,200 to be distributed
among the creditors. The claims of the
society amount to some 122,135.24, 84,050
in addition to preferred creditors, and
85,251 to other creditors, but the last
amount will piobably be increased
somewhat. The meeting approved of
the assignee's action in not selling the
establishment at once, and in allowing
the business to continue for a short
time. The creditors will meet again in
two weeks at 109 Nicollet avenue in the
jobbers' association rooms, when Mr.
Monasch is expected to make some

Chicago, Jan. 22.— wheat market
showed some strength early, settled back
close to last night's closing figures and was
very heavy and dull until nearly 1 o'clock,
when there was another little spurt ot buy
ing, and the price again went up the best fig
ure of the morning. The action in May was
80V2C to 80%@8lH«8C-to Bu%c to BOV2C to
Bu%c at 1 o'clock. Early futures were
neglected. There was nothing in the news to
cause any marked change. The market is
simply held down by the great short sellers.
Liverpool cables came %d higher this morn
ing, and the board of trade gave a decrease
of 330,000 bu on ocean passage. Now York
dispatches reported 40,000 bu inspected out
of store, aud Baltimore reported nine
loads taken for export after hours
yesterday. New York worked three boat
loads this morning, and cleared 160,000 bu
of wheat and was 15.000 bbls of flour, Bal
timore cleared no wheat, and Philadelphia,
17.000 bu. Receipts at Minneapolis were 16
cars, and at Duluth but 6 cars. Chicago re
ceived 41 cars only, and of these 15 graded
No. 2. During the early trading, Partridge
was a seller, with the scalpers sellers, and
some selling against "calls." Hutchinson
bought, and brokers, supposed to repr
sent George ; Smith, also took wheat
freely. The market was closely watched by
the local trade, and a change of >&c in price
brought the traders into the pit. The firm
feeling in wheat was most noticeable
just before the close, when May
advanced to 80 %c, and closed at 80
%®%c. Receipts were 11 cars winter wheat,
3»> cars spring, 153 cars corn and 93 cars
oats. Withdrawals from store were 3,000 bu
winter wheat, 53,689 bu spring, 2,816 bu
corn and 70,875 bu oats. Corn was strong.
The demand from shorts was good and the
offerings comparatively light. The Wear
Commission company and Norton- Worthing
ton were the largest buyers; Qutchinson and
Schwartz-Dupee were selling. There were
67,000 bu cleared yesterday from till At
lantic ports, and 32,t»00 bu from New Or
leans. Oats were fairly active and closed
VaSikc higher than yesterday. There was an
improved trade in hog products to-day,
and improved prices was the result.
Hutchinson look a hand in buying pork
early, and later he was on both sides of
the market. There were uo heavy individ
ual operations. Mitchell and Wolfe each
did some business; and the quiet talk abo ut
Armour's attitude as a bull and a holder of
product helped the strength. Receipts of
hogs, 35,0 and, from a firm, steady mai
ket, early prices moved up s®loc, and the
feeling became strong. In the pit the prin
cipal trading was In May, and the prices were
advanced as follows: Short riDs from $5,021,2
©5.05 to $5. 10; lard, 86.15 to $9.20; mess
pork, $10.15 to $10.421,2, with closing prices
at the top for the day. The strength of the
market makes sellers cautious, and only one
packing concern, the International, offered
to sell March products.

quiet, but firm at $4.H2% for sixty-day bills,
and $4,801,4 for demand. Tne stock market
was active to-day at both ends with a long
period of dullness and a near approach to
stagnation between, though eucb movements
as were made in that time were in the direc
tion of lower figures. About three-fourths
of the business done during the day was
transacted in the first half hour and the last
forty-five minutes. A marked feature of the
trading, however, was that when the market
was active prices advanced, while dullness
brought a drooping tendency and stag
nancy. The events of the daygotosho*.
that the bull party has quickly acquired
strength of numbers, and the talk on the
street is more confident of an advance all
along the line. Tne covering movement of
the past two days was still under way at the
opening this morning, but the early demand
was soon satisfied, aud, as the buying for the
short account ceased, the market became
dull and stagnant. The bears did some ham
mering in a feeble way. but with only small
fractional results, and they soon ceased ag
gressive operations. The temper of the room
continued bullish even undei the discour
agement of the extreme dullness and the
talk that money was absured 01 ease for at
least two months, while the rail
roads were sure of large earnings
for the meantime was heard in all
directions. The cold snap was favorable to
the coal stocks, and neither Reading, Lacka
' wanna nor Jersey Central got below their
opening figures, while many of the other
leading shares before delivery hour were
fractionally lower. The afternoon rise was
Etarted by the specialties, with very heavy
trading in Missouri Pacific, the Coalers, St.
Paul, Sugar refineries and Union Pacific, the
last being favorably affected by the report of
the government directors, though Oregon
Short Line was stronger on less business
Everything reached its highest price for the
day, and the movement was kept up right
up to the close, which was active and
strong. The trusts were fairly active, and
Sugar was strong, though the expectation of
a decision in its case rather militated
against it. The buying was liberal in the
last hour, however, and with the regular list
it mounted to the best prices for nearly a
week. The active stocks are almost invariably
higher tonight. Railroad bonds were again
moderately active, and although the transact
tions extended to an unusually laree number
of issues, only one, Texas Pacific seconds,
showed any special animation, furnishing
8108,000 out of a total of $1,507,000. The
movements were smaller and fewer than
those of yesterday, but a uniform fiim tone
prevailed. Southwestern firsts rose 2to 112;
Mackinac aud Marquette Land grant 2 to 38
The Post says: "Of course the colder
weather strengthens the anthracite coai
stocks, but the firmness of prices tot other
stocks in such extreme dullness is remarka
ble,aud is significant of higher prices with any
increase of activity. The prevailing senti
ment in the street is bullish, but many specu
lators, not only in New York but elsewhere.
are waiting for some indications of a wider
piiDlic interest in the stock market. Others,
though quite sanguine as to the prosperity
of the general railroad business of the coun
try, are undecided about what stocks to buy.
Eventually this uncertainty seems likely to
resolve itself into a speculative advance in
all the cheap stocks, such as Kansas & Texas,
Texas Pacific, Denver & Fort Worth. Wheel
ing & Lake Erie. Hocking Valley, the Chesa
peake & Ohios, etc. The establisnment of
Lake Erie & Western preferred as a regular
dividend payer by its tirs-t quar
terly dividend of 1 pea cent, de
clared yesterday, and which a few weeks
ago was selling at 63 against 67 this lore
nqou. is an instance of the prosperity ot the
Middle stale roads, which will help specula
tion in them. Government bonds have been -
dull and weak for the 48. State bonds have
been dull and without feature. The total salts

Wheat opened firm at an advance of lac
from yesterday's closing price. Early cables
were conflicting, some reporting wheat linn
and tending up at Ud dtarer, while others
said wheat was dull and inactive. Public
cables quoted the feeling in flour weaker,
with Minneapolis straight 22s (id for sacks
of -SO pounds. There was more or less dis
position to sell, and in the face of a little bet
ter quotations irom other places prices here
were quiet,and widened a little between here
and some of the principal mar
kets. There was some fair busi
ness at different times, with dull
ness the general rule. Sales were mostly
made between 79%ic and «<>c hay. Some
said that Chicago parties were buynit:| here;
but if so, it was pretty well concealed. May
wheat opened at 7U76C. sold up to 80c and
back to 7:isfe<S>79»4C. Near the close the
market was higher with sales at 7..%@80c.
A great deal of May wheat was for sale at

stander, In the Richelieu rotunda,
as he pointed out a man of thirty -five or
forty, who wore a look on his face which
indicated that he could decide a busi
ness proposition while au ordinary
man would be gathering it into .
shape to think about it. "What
is his salary! Just twice
what the president of the United States
receives. Yes, sir, that man receives
$100,000 a year for his work, and I don't
doubt he earns every cent of it for his
company, for he carries .an enormous
business on his shoulders. Who Is he?
The president of a life insurance com
pany. 1 don't know of any other dusl
ness. though, that can afford to pay any
such salary as tliat.^'
