Handsome Minneapolis Build ing Speaks Louder Than Empty Protestations of Loyalty. VOL. XII. POLITICAL POTPOURRI How Certain Temperance So cieties Wrecked Them selves in Politics. The State League Fiasco the o incoming of Its Short coming's. Ed Johnson's Little Board of Public Works Propo sition. Pungent and Pointed Para graphs About Prominent Politicians. I neither taste, touch, nor handle. Nor even read the sign— If the members of the half-dozen tem perance reform clubs that have been or ganized in Minneapolis in the last de cade had followed closely the spirit of the above lines, they intent all have found themselves in a prosperous con dition to-day. But instead of that they are all back numbers, and it is doubt ful even if future historians are of the complexion that "never look upon the wine when It is red," that they will ever think it worth while to refer to these defunct political temperance clubs. They jumped into the political swim and got beyond their depth. There was the Reform club, over which Brother Satterlee presided for years. It was a temperance club when organized, but political feather brains got in, and it died of course. Then came the Murphy club, that tried to change the Theatre Comique into a temperance hall. Its members got along nicely until they mixed in politics, and then they lost their hold on the com munity. What has bf come of the fol lowers of George Wolley? They stuck together like bees in a hive in winter until political issues arose, and that was the last of that body. Sam .Small's fol lowing has also grown smaller since polities crept in. The lesson to be drawn from this is obvious, and might be learned in advance by the W. C. T. V., partisans and non-partisans. * » * The Journal devoted almost a column of valuable (?) space a few days ago to telling the great victories that Congress man Snider has won since he went to Washington, and winds up by adding that .Mr. Snider will be a candidate for re-election, and he will surely get the uomination, because the "Young Re publicans of the Fourth district are much pleased with his record." This is rather strange news for the good people of Minneapolis and the Fourth district, who have yet to hear of any bill in troduced by Snider being passed. This is the record that the Jour nal "points with pride" to. The "Young Republicans" who figured in the political arena last year with Mr. Snider and did so much to elect him, will be very small fry a year Hence. They, with "Col." Tim Bvrnts at the head, showed good political sagacity from a personal standpoint in directing the affairs of toe State Republican league. It is a splendid indorsement for the young congressman, and the Republicans behind him, to see a due bill not worth 30 cents on the dollar going the rounds of the state for a pur chaser. Tim Byrnes thinks of sending it to the Louisiana lottery, and that Loren Fletcher or R. B. Langdon might Duy the unlucky ticket. It looks now as if this were the only way to realize 100 cents on the dollar on it. * c * If the leadine spirits of the Republi can State league had copied a little closer the principles laid down and prac .^d by Gov. W. R. Merriain last year, they would not be in such a sweat these cold days. Merriam, according to Loren Fletcher, went on the "spot cash" and "pay-as-you-go" plan, which evidently worked well for Merriam. No old bills, the interest on which had perforated the paper so badly that the figures were scarcely discernible, were thrown in on Merriam's desk only to be turned away without any encourage ment, as was the case with the State league. If Merriam's style of doing business had been followed, Tim Byrnes Wight have sent for a good barber and cot a neat job done while confined to his bed last week, instead of trying to shave himself with his wife's assist ance. * • • Attorney Pierce, better known as Judge Pierce, is the latest candidate in the field for judge of the new United States district. The judge is said to be a good lawyer, who is much thought of by the legal fraternity in Minneapolis, but has not mingled to any great extent In local politics, If a Minneapolis man is going to get that place he must be more of a political hustler than Judge Pierce, and though the Bar association Indorse him for the place, he will not pet it. Judge Seagrave Smith was once indorsed by the Minneapolis Bar asso ciation for place on the llennepin county bench, but did Gov. McGill ap point him? He did not. He appointed Judge Hicks because of political debts. -. • * « *. The friends of Treasurer Hush, of the Flambeau club, are much displeased over the way his application for the office of deputy collector of customs is being handled by Senator \Vasliburn. The latter was expected to have given Hush his indorsement for the place be fore his recent departure for Washing ton, but he was either too busy or did not want to be in a hurry about it. Collector Edwards, it is said, favors the appointment of J. C. Williams for the ploce, now deputy collector at St. Vin cent. Williams thoroughly understands the customs business, and it would be a difficult place for a green hand to at tempt to 1511 without a good deal of val uable training. Senators, congressmen, legislators and aldermen may recom mend, but Collector Edwards will make the appointment. * * • "Gene" Hay has not yet made his appointments of assistant and clerk. He is making hay slowly. "Gene," like all those who know him, does not regard '• himself as an excej tonally smart or brilliant lawyer, and prefers to get thoroughly acquainted with the duties of the office before making any changes. If Mr. Hay's assistants were to resign How and insist on their resignations taking effect at once, "Gene's" right bowers would pronounce it Democratic meanness; but to retain them in office until lie gets informed of his duties and then drop them as he would a decayed bouquet, would be termed Republican politeness. The latter, will no doubt be adopted as the line of action. • *■."•■* A. 11. Hall !s standing modestly In the background, for some reason or other unknown to some of his friends. Can It be that he has pulled down the old pins and put up new ones for the city attorney snip? His friends say that he sees in the distance all that is mortal of — — ■—• ' the police commission laid away in a metallic casket bearing the inscription: Lost to the memory of ail V : Except that of A. H. Hull,' " ' ' r Thrown to the winds like chuff. '•= - Don't forget to write our epitaph. ■' ': Like a dutiful son, he will see that this request is carried out. lie will soon be gin to write the epitaph, and is already preparing material for it. The intro duction he expects Freeman P. Lane to assist him in getting up, and Ed A. Stevens has already, been engaged to see that it will conform in every partic ular to the revised city charter and or dinances. The work, like the city council, will be a walking encyclopedia of thirty-nine volumes, neatly bound in calf. The price has not yet been set, but it is said that the newsboys are to get them at half price, and will be for} sale on all the street cars. i *:».'* _ . .'-. 1., If some of the members of the last legislature from Henepin county suc ceed in getting back to the state capital next fall, they propose, among other things, to give the municipal court a great deal more authority than it has now, and also extend the jurisdiction of the justices' courts. The city, if the present programme is carried out, will be divided into live justice districts, in stead of three, as now, and their juris diction extended from $100 to $500. A pol c • justice, it is said, is also contem plated. « * • The People's Political Reform club has not made any footprints in the sands of Minneapolis politics vet. If reports are, true the reform club will not be heard of again. The leading spirits in it, except Sam Johnson, have all been sat upon, and they felt the heel of the friends of the present administration so hard that they promised to " 'tend to their knittin'" and let politics alone until the proper time came. Even big Police Commissioner Gjertsen is said, to have put out his tongue several inches under the choking pressure and shouted "quits." Sam Johnson, it is said, wanted to be treasurer of the club, and being unable to furnish the necessary bonds was ruled out, and it was decided that each member take care of his own money. They evidently have not a great deal to do in this line, as a num ber of them can be seen standing on the street corners almost every day now with the same old clothes on that they bought when in office. • »; * • ':"-. E. M. Johnson's idea to establish a board of public works is not going to meet with favor at the hands of the taxpayers next election. It was a good thing for the property owners of Minne apolis that Mr. Johnson forgot himself when he gave the proposed plan of the Union League on this subject. Unlike the way the police commission was forced on the people, the board of pub lic works will not be railroaded through the legislature without the people know ing something about it. When the old board of water commissioners was abolished. four years ago. an effort was made to get a bill through the legisla ture creating a board of public works, but it was defeated. The public gen erally are opDOsed to such boards, as their names in Minneapolis are synony mous with scandals and costly investi gations that are. productive of no good and a great deal of expense. Mr. John son will "have a strong backing from those who expect to profit by the change, but the masses will oppose it. GRA.YP JUtiY DISMISSED. It Hands in a Report and Some Few Indictments. The grand jury finished its labors yes terday and was dismissed by Judge Hicks at 3:30 o'clock. The judg took occasion to thank the jurors for their services, and in a very pretty speech made them feel like small-sized martyrs. Before their dismissal the foreman hand ed in their report on the work house, which the jury had visited in the morning. As a literary gem the report will not take high standing, either from grammatical correctness or literary merit, but it sufficed, and allowed the members of the august body to resume their various avocations and quit the criminal business until called again. The report states that the members of the grand jury visited the city work house and inspected every department, rinding 140 men and sixteen women confined there. They found everything in perfect order. In the new cell room there are 102 cells, and in the old part forty-four. They were informed that there is need of more room, as the place is now crowded, and they recommended that action should be taken at once in the matter to have it enlarged. At the time of their visit there was one room containing thirty or forty people, and they were informed that eleven more were to be placed in there the next day. The latter would of necessity be com pelled to sleep on the floor. The jury returned sixteen indict ments, none of them of much interest. Those arraigned were Fred Bosse, the man charged with shooting Edward Back. He made no plea, and could not understand the Indictment. Edward Patton pleaded guilty to passing checks when there \vas no money in the bank to meet them. James Schieber. charged with steal ing an overcoat from Charles Lamb at the Wessex hotel, also pleaded guilty. He is only a boy, not over sixteen years old, whose parents live in Bloomington, 111. He was sent to the reformatory. Edward McErsham pleaded not guilty to the theft of several articles of jewelry from the residence of James Mclntosh. Neither of them were able to pay attor neys, and the county will be obliged to furnish them. ; '..'..- It is not yet certain what was the out come in the Monasch case, as the mem bers of the association have contradict ory opinions. No indictments of any account were returned. THE PAKK COMMISSION. . Todd's Pond Park and Other Matters of Interest. The board of park commissioners held a regular meeting yesterday. Vice President Haugen, who presided, stated that he had instructed Supt. .Berry to open a free skating rink in Elliott Park for the accommodation . of the. young people of that locality, and the board approved the order. Attorney John F. Byrnes, who represented a number of the former lot owners in what is now Saratoga Park, asked to .be re lieved of the payment of the taxes on their lots, but Attorney Rockwood held that as the deeds had not been filed before Jan 1, the board could not be legally held for taxes and suggested that the board take no action in the matter. The amount involved is about 1835. Action upon the petition was postponed until the next, meeting. At i torney Rockwood reported the apprais ers in the matter of Powderhoru park had assessed the property at $15,860, which is $1,938 more than the original award. Petitions were : received both for and against the proposed park at Todd's pond, which were referred to the committee on designation of grounds. A special committee consist- Ing of. Messrs. Demules, Ridgway and Downs to secure proposals . from the McNalr estate on the site proposed to be taken for Todd's Pond park. An adjourned meeting of the board will be held on Saturday next. .. . The bar association met yesterday morning and adopted appropriate resolutions upon the death ol Henry \i. Sampson. SAINT PAUL MINN., SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 2, 1890. —SIXTEEN PAGES. SOME STREET SCENES People Who Find Street Crossing- an Adventurous Amusement. Some Observations on Nicol let Avenue Sketched and Paragraphed. Female Bravery That Borders Upon Recklessness, and Male Cowardice. A February Thaw, and Its Gentle Pleasantries With Pedestrians. The street crossings on the up-town thoroughfares of Minneapolis are to one unaccustomed to wending his way over them sources of great anxiety when his path leads across their ye- hide - crowded width. Espe cially has this been true dur ing the past week, when the thawing snow has made diffi culty of loco motion for both vehicles and footpasseimers. The s % ree ts, too, have been unusually crowded with vehicles. The vanis h in g 'beautiful snow" left the pavement far from the gilt- _ ; A. EACE FOU LIFE. edge ideal of a street commissioner's dream, and while the cutters were able to.glide along at a rate wholly uncom fortable for any one who had to pass before them," the bobsleds of our country cousins didn't slide along as slick on this 'ere city street gradin' as they did on the country roads on which the good husbandmen started on a 1. $^jm_ journey ;and so for the unfor tunates who had the gaunt let to run there was ever an in opportune bob In front when a scarcely less oppurtune cut ter was clos ing upon the foot passeneer from down the street. And so the corner of Fourth street and Nieoller avenue afford ed an excel lent laboratory for the study of bewildered NIP AND TUCK. numaaity. The men are even more timid than the women. Not a few of the more irresolute would stop suddenly on running into a wood cart, retreat into au open sleigh full of ladies, turn round and lift a polite hat in apology, - — — — — -ji I^^J tf \ to be run into from the flank by a baker's or a butcher's nag, then plunge for ward forgetful of which direc tion was to be taken, and turn round upon mak ing the discovery only to run into new impedi ments, and have Impediments run into him until in sheer despera tion, the un fortuate man would shut his eves, consign his FEMALE BIiAVADO. ( fate to his tailor and bolt across the street in abstraction. To thes meen the audacious bland ness and majestic indifference with which members of the fair and timid sex stroll across the pavement, with a kind of a "I-wonder-if-there-are-any violets along-this-stream kind" of a de meanor is a wouder and a miracle. A STP.EET CROSSING EXPEKT. The newsboys and bootblacks seem to find no trouble in crossing the street. There is in fact great danger that some of the high-bred and valuable trotters that some of our prominent citizens ex hibit along Nicollet avenue will stumble upon one of these urchins some day and receive a broken leg or a nervous shock which would be detrimental to high class racing. It does the heart of we laboring men of the metropolis good to see a "prorni- (^Oj\L J^/ fd^Mi vent citizen," that is, a pro fess io n at ly prominent citi zen, stand 15 or 2 0 minutes while a train of wood carts hitched to a de crepit team of horses jolts ov er the crossing. One of the en terprising fuel dealers of the city has sent as many as six carts attached to one team and driven through the prominent streets of our city. The iirst of "the week a young man of No Respect fou Dignity. Scandinavian ancestry, though probably of lsrae.litish instincts, was driving a venerable team of mules hitched to a very much elongated sled load of bricks up Fourth street over the snowless ground. The poor beasts breathed slightly once as the bobs came in con tact with the Nicollett crossing. There was no parting there. The load stuck fast and the populace walked in the Blush, of the street. A FEBRUAKY THAW And Its Melting Effect Upon Flour City People. The warm days of last week consti tuted what has been denominated the "February thaw." Like everything else in the Flour City this veteran un seasonable period was right up to date, Sir V//l\& s^ft* and a little ahead, and three days before February first put in its ap pearance, our cit izens were greet ed with the liquid eloquence of the new coiner, as it tenderly strolled . down their spinal columns in cool and fluent drops from off the last year's awning, which some of our prominent merch ants have not yet had time to take down. In refer ring to this sub ject of awnings, it is quite possible that the cause for them being up is that summer glided so softly into autumn and autumn into winter and out again into the February thaw that the change was hardly detected. Last Wednesday morn ing the great majority of the good people of Minneapolis, the board of trade excepted, woke up to find old Boreas chased to Canada, THE MAIiK PHOCESSION. along with the other defaulters, and a bland female atmosphere presiding as though May herself had appeared upon the scene. The "B. of T." will consider the question of whether or not the February thaw has arrived at its meet ing Monday morning, then refer it to the committee on city affairs after J. B. Bassett has objected to it, Judge At water orated upon it and C. J. Buel warbled off some resolutions, and after the summer vacation the committee will report for definite action. In the mean time it is quite interesting to the com mon citizen to stand well under the , &ATv' ?&' - .; '■■ ;- ••; -', ii THE FEMALE PROCESSION. eaves and watch the rest of the town go by. In regard to the female portion of the town liave you ever observed the difference in the way different women manage their garments. As a young philosopher was observed to remark the other day, as he saw a woman wading through the dissolving elements that besmeared the crossing in front of the Bank of Commerce building, her Iff 1 /ifr^Y 1 X i \ * I CROSSING THE JOB- S |DAN. . n skirts mopping up the liquid streams on one side and on the other dis p lay ing a de- Bcending piece of uosery, "there's a knack about i t with women, isn't there !" This thaw was somewhat of a surprise to some of the citzens. A jroung and fair fe inaie was one of this category. De siring to go a block to a neigh bor's, she started in her slippers, without drawing ber rubber boots over them as,some of her wiser sis ters who traverse the streets now do. She had taken but a few short teps when the ele lentsengulfedthe dainty cinderalla backs which bore her, but she hurried on singing as she went "Over Jordan," and at each succeeding step raising her skirts a particle higher with the evident but miscalculated belief that with them would raise her slippers, but they didn't. The thaw came near being the Indi rect cause of unbalancing one. good little gentlemen's mental equilibrium. 5j >k He was seated in a Hawthorn ave nue car almost alone. A lady— a most respectable lady— entered and taking her seat opposite to him neatly gathered her overshirit in to her lap leaving a white expansy below. The lady had been calling, and had on her good clothes, and did not wish to get the dress soiled; that wa3 all. This is a priv- lege many women take, but the good man did not ; understand. He might ; have been an honorary member of the board of trade, and so did not feel sure there was a thaw, but at any rate, was much agitated. . Doubtless he had ■ never seen a white skirt before off of a clothes line, and he bolted for the plat form, gained it, and seeing that, the lady was not pursuing him, ' meekl^-f looked up in the driver's face, and asked: "May I ride out here with you?" . : -'\ HOTEL ARRIVALS. * \ At the Holmes: A.

The Danz Orchestra and Ex position Bands as Educa tional Factors. The Organization of Societies That Followed as a Result. Some of the Tortures That Are Now Inflicted by Amateurs. In Its early days the musical educa tion of Minneapolis, excepting in a few isolated cases, was sadly neglected. Do not understand by this that its people were remiss in the pursuance of musical studies that usually fall to the lot of the younger members of a primitive society. The young ladies, all more or less, pegged away at piano practice, and the usual number of young men with high pitched voices took vocal lessons and posed as tenors. The idea intended to be conveyed is that the peo ple had not been educated up to a higher standard of instrumental work, and were content to sit and listen to the sober strains of "Hail Columbia," or "Old Grimes Is Dead," executed by an abbreviated orchestra, without much at tempt at rhythm or harmony. Minneapolis drifted along in the same primitive fashion In regard to music for some years, the monotony only varied by the visit, once in a while, of a coun try town amateur band, on an occasion of unusual moment, when they came to assist in somn torchlight procession or campaign speech, and gave a soiree musicale before th a ir return to oblivion and their native wheat fields. It was not until about ISSS that any attempt at a musical awakening was made, and that was owing to the advent of Frank Danz from New York, where he was for twelve years the first violin ist in Theodore Thomas' orchestra. He succeeded in establishing a very fair orchestra, which he labored with un ceasingly, and in a short time was en abled to give some very creditable ren ditions of the work of some of the great masters. Minneapolis did not "take kindly at first to the new statcof affairs, and it took a thorough course of instruc tion, covering a considerable space of time, before they began to really appre ciate the superior class of music that was beiugfurnishod them. As a direct result, people had just come to that pass when they would be susceptible to a grand awakening to the superior merits of high class instru mental work when the exposition opened, and the famous Mexican band gave forth its stirring music to the ears of an audience that were already begin ning to hunger for something* of the kind. A furor was created at once, and music and composers was the one topic for conversatisn in social and even busi ness circles. Next came Llberatl with his excel lent band, followed by Cappa, and last, but not least, Col. Innes, with his great aggregation of musical artists. During all this time Minneapolis had not been asleep. The awakening had come, and a grand musical revival took place. Musical societies were formed, and even the churches took the popular fever and began to collect the best local talent and form it into quartettes, some of them going so far as to import new talent, until the musical part of the church service became as much a matter for consideration as the quality of the sermon to be preached. The Gounod club was organized In 1885, and, its membership being con fined to the people of the very best social standing, it had a far-reaching in- . fluence, and assisted not a little in the improvement of the popular standard of music. In 1886 Lachmund's Juvenile orchestra appeared upon the scene, and has been in existence ever since, being a factor in the musical education of the rising generation. In the same year a concert bureau was organized for the purpose of furnishing concerts or lect ures, with soloists to complete pro grammes, or for full musical entertain ments. In 1887 the Appollo Glee club was or ganized, the Flour City Cadet band, the Exposition chorus, the Ladies- quar tette, Plate's East Side band, and the Philharmonic society was reconstructed and placed upon a more modern basis. In 1888 the club was started, also the Choral club, with ladies' quar tette, the Hollow Cove Banjo club, the Mandolin ana (iuiiar club, and the pop ular Sappho Ladies' quartette, which has earned for itself an enviable repu tation in the short space of lime they have been together. Latterly a higher class of music has been so much appreciated that at the Sunday afternoon concerts of Danz's full orchestra Harmoma hall has been found hardly large enough to accommo date the audiences that have gathered. Yet, with all the improvement, Minne apolis still lacks one thing in the mu sical line, and that is a really superb Wass band that can render a high order of music In a style that could gain for itself a more than local reputation. Certainly the city should be able to sup port such a one, and it would be worth the trial. • There are one or two amateur bands in the city that are practicing with a laudable end in view, but it will be riiiany years before they can attain the desired degree of proficiency. Mean- wnne tne immedi ate neighbors of each individual member are brought to the verge of Imbecil ity by their noc turnal practic ing*. The fat man with the base horn lives in a little house on the East side and, from the magni tude of his instru ment, is obliged to take his prac tice out in the back yard, where the whole block can get the bene fit of his solo rendition of the ABACK YARD SOLOIST. "Star-Spangled Banner." If the star spangled canopy of heaven would only fall in his immediate vicinity and crush him into incomprehensive uothingness a large subscription might be collected from the gratified neighbors toward the erection of a proper monument to hi« memory. pThe bald-headed old bachelor who manipulates the tenor-horn end of the concern usually starts in at about 5 o'clock in the morning and pierces the quiet air in the neighborhood of Fourth fctreet ami Third avenue north with, the tender strains that tell the story of a certain well-known Johnny and his his tory in connection with a certain gun that it seems he has forgotten to have with him, and he is importuned to bring it at once. If the old gent is about when the implement of war comes, in Johnny's company, he will get the worst of it.

The piccoilo soloist, wtio millets tiis music upon his friends at all public en tertainments, could be borne with if he did not sit in his front window and scare every passer-by with his facial contortions, while ho blows forth im possible trills and executes a brilliant failure in triple-tongueing that would set a connoiseur's teeth on edge and cause the mule hitched to the post across the way turn faint with envy.
