Globe yesterday morning suppressed
the sensational story current concern
ing the shortage and disappearance of
Edward J. Cat
tell, resident
partner of the
Chicago stock

&Co. It is to
be feared, how
ever, that Cat
te 1 1 has as
sumed a more

have come to
lieht which lead to the belief that when
he left without the customary farewell,
he bore away with him sundry large
sums of otlier people's money and left
behind him an aggregation of bills aud
dents that will prove anything but
pleasant souvenirs of his meteoric
career here. Nearly everybody in St.
Paul knows Edward J. Cattell, the well
known ladies' and club man. whose
name has been in the list of guests at
every fashionable party for the past
few years, and whose face is as familiar
to the Minnesota club as the house it
self. Quite a number also knew Cat
tell's office in the subbasenient of the
Gilfillan block, corner Jackson and
Fourth streets, where, under the name
of Walker & Co., full many a St. Paul
lamb has tackled the bulls and bears of
Wall street or bought or sold wheat on
the Chicago board of trade. C.tttell was
resident partner of Walker & Co., stock
brokers, and for nearly six years has
managed the Business profitably and
Where is he now?
The office in the Gilfillan block is now
in charge of E. C. Walker, head of the
Chicago firm, who arrived Thursday
morning, post haste and spent most of
the day closeted with Attorney W. H.
Sanborn, first, and Detectives Pinkerton
and McGinn, afterward. Cattell isgone
and Mr. Walker says he has put Pink
erton on his trail, but Mr. Walker could
not say that Walker & Co. were the
losers by his departure; that is, he told
a Globe reporter that he had not had
time and opportunity to examine the
books and accounts, and was unwilling
to commit himself at that time; but
earlier in the day he was less guarded
and said openly that the firm would be
out considerable money. And he freely
said the detectives were on Cattell's
trail, which carried the intimation that
some offense had been committed.
All day long private and public mes
senger boys poured in and out of Cat
tell's office, and more than one promi
nent citizen cautiously entered the side
door and ventured an inquiry as to Mr.
Cattell's whereabouts. Rut all that
seemed known was that Cattell had last
been seen Tuesday afternoon at the
club, after the markets closed. A note
was left on the operator's desk stating
that he had gone to Chicago, but Mr.
Walker says he never went there. It is
rumored that he took a Great North
ern train Monday evening, but of
this there is nothing definite. All
sorts of rumors have since obtained,
two of which secure greatest credence,
viz.: That he is off on a prolonged de
bauch and will turnup all right, or
that he has gone East to his wealthy re
latives to secure the necessary funds to
cover his shortage. Just what that
shortage is cannot be learned until all
claims for investments made with Cat
tell have been presented. Yesterday
morninc: Edward Walker, father of E.
C. Walker, arrived in the city. He is a
Chicago lawyer, and as counsel
in the famous Leslie Carter divorce
case, gained a wide celebrity. He
at once took charge of the situation and
announced that Cattell'*? shortage would
not exceed $10,000 and might run much
lower than that figure. His opinion was
that he had been speculating on his own
account, and as such proceeding is
strictly against the firm's rules, he took
himself off on a drunken debauch.
It was learned about town that while
he was doing a legitimate commission
business for Walker & Co.. Cattell was
also engaging in a little bucket shop
work oh his own account, and as
he was a pronounced bear the
bullish tendency of the market,
recently, undoubtedly floored him.
The story was that he pocketed the
profits aud carried the losses back upon
the firm. For how much of this busi
ness the firm can be made responsible
is a question the courts must solve here
after. The amount outstanding is a
matter of the merest rumor, and there
is no necessity for going Into it.
Cattell came to St. Paul from Phila
delphia about six years ago, and became
first messenger and then cashier for the
Northern Pacific Railroad company,
furnishing without difficulty the neces
sary 130,000. bond. Shortly afterward
he became the local manager
for Walker & Co., which po
sition he has since . successfully
managed. A story accompanied him
here and for a time threw a cloud over
him. but was finally dispersed entirely
to his credit. He was accused of appro
priating a large sum of money placed in
his hand for investment in Philadelphia
& Reading stock. The case got into
court and he returned to defend it, com
ing back to St. Paul with every cloud
dispelled. It was this story which for
a long time closed the doors of the Min
nesota club against him, but he at last
was admitted, and since then has made
the club house his home. Iv
society he was always a favorite.
Though not handsome the strict sense
of the term.he was very popular.and his
ability as a raconteur and his general
character as bon vivant and man-about
town have gained him many friends.
He was always received with open arms
at the best homes of St. Paul, and his
reputation for honesty has never been
questioned.. His friends still profess
their confideut belief that he will turn
un all right. ; -

Some Interesting Testimony Rela-
tive to Police Appointments.
The record was broken in Judge ,
Kerr's court yesterday in the case of The
Second National Bank against Howe
Bros, when twenty-seven witnesses
were called. The questions that these
witnesses addressed themselves to were:
1. What can you say as to the character
of Officer Haney as to truth and ve
racity? 2. Would you believe him under
oath? A. D. Warner, John Ahem,, D.
W. Lawler, J. J. McCafferty and others;
testified that Haney's character was bad
and that they would not believe him
under oath. The defense called in re
buttal James Cleary, John Foos, J.
M. Bonner. "J. 11. Hullsiek, James
Schouimaker and Frank Ford, but
the testimony of these witnesses
was negative in its . character.
The weight of their testimony only
went as far as the statement that they
had never heard anything either good
or bad, of Hituyand therefore of
course they would believe him under
oath. An 'incident occurred during the
trial a little out of the common, when
Mr. Warner, attorney for the defend
ants, called the name of C. D. O'Brien,
attorney for the plaintiff, and the latter,
blushing like a wild rose, meandered to
the stand, when the following colloquy
Mr. Warner— Mr. O'Brien, did you,
while acting mayor of this city, appoint
Mr. Haney to the police force?
"I did."
"Did you not, in company with Chief
Clark, go to the residence of Mr. Ilaney
and request him to name a member of
the force." •
"No, sir, (emphatically). I appointed
him on the recommendation of 'Baz'
Armstrong. 1 never knew the man."
Mr. Warner— That will , do, Mr.
O'Brien. 1 would like to say, in cross
examination of myself, that this is
the, first instance 1 have ever
known or heard of where the mayor
of the city was. obliged to go about from
house to house seeking candidates for
the police force.
The argument of Mr. O'Brien, in clos
ing for the plaintiff, was a masterly one.
He unmercifully scored Howe Bros.,
Officer Haney and Attorney Warner,
stigmatizing the suit, so far as the de
fense was concerned, as an infamous
plot, which, if it succeeded, would
blacken the character of two of St.-
Paul's best and worthiest citizens. He
appealed to the jury, by its verdict, to
vindicate his clients from the foul as
persion sought to be heaped upon them.
The court will deliver his charge this
morning, and a verdict will be reached
by noon.

to a Lady's Benefit.
In i the case of James H. Spencer
against Goss & Dunham, Judge Wilkin
tiled an order yesterday deciding that
Goss & Dunham are entitled to the
property in question. Judge Wilkin
says that from Dec. 14, 1856, up to the
time of the sale thereof by him, Edward
H. Hauke owned the south half of the
southeast quarter and the northeast
quarter of the southeast quarter of sec
tion 32, township 40 north of range 28,
west, in Morrison county, Minn. Hanke
sold it to Edward Tompkins in 1857. In
December, 1873, Hanke made another:
deed of the property to Ida M. Wilsou.
Both deeds for the property were re
corded the same day, viz., Feb. 20, 1874.
The deed of Tompkins, which- was first
made, was recorded an hour after the
one to Ida M.Wilson was recorded.
Ida M. Wilson conveyed the lands
to Justus A. Wilson. Goss & Dun
ham, by authority of Justus A.
Wilson, cut and removed 800,000 feet of
timber from the lauds, which was worth
$2.50 per thousand feet. The land and
timber were conveyed by Tompkins to
James H. Spencer. Ida M. Wilson had
no notice at the time the deed was made
to her of the deed being made prior
thereto to Tompkins, or that he claimed
', any interest in the premises. There is
no proof of the consideration paid by
either Ida M. Wilson or Tompkins for
the land. As conclusions 'of law, it is
' found that at the time of cutting the
timber James H. Spencer did not own
the timber; that the deed to Ida M.
Wilson conveyed the , title .to the land,
as against Tompkins; Goss . .-Dunham
are entitled to judgment against the]
plaintiff, James H. Spencer.

7 Frank Noble was arrested yesterday
by the city detectives and arraigned be
fore' the ; police judge on a . charge of
forgery. He is about thirty years old,
medium height, sandy complexion, red
mustache and "dressed like a laborer.
The specific charge is passing a $10
forged check upon the firm of Floon &
Leveroos, in whose store he made a
small purchase . and presented a check .
purporting, to be ; signed by Col. A.

Commissioner Ives Tells Why It
;- Is Deleterious —It Must Be
Dairy Commissioner Ives is after the
milkmen who are feeding" malt, in dead
earnest, and doesn't propose to let up
until they change their tactics. Yester
day a Globe reporter placed before
him a statement of a milk pro
ducer, who y said that he proposed
to keep right on. feeding malt, as the
dairy commissioner could not secure a
conviction in such cases.
"That is partly true," said Mr. Ives.
"With some of our judges it is quite
hard to get a conviction, as they would
compel us to camp down with the cow
and see them feed the malt. But as for
me, lam going to adopt the plan the
man did that took the job of throwing
another man across the river; if 1 do
not succeed the first- time I will keep at
it until 1 do; or, in other words, we in
tend to keep before the consumers' of
milk the names of the producers who
feed malt. The time has arrived when
the consumers of milk can assist in the
enforcement -of the law, by refusing to
buy a single quart of milk that Is pro
duced from malt feeding. To substan
tiate the position I have taken with ref
erence to feeding brewers' grains and
distillery slop, it is only necessary to
refer *o measures taken by the national
government and several of the states to"
put a stop to such practices. A bill was
introduced iv February. 1879, pronounc
ing all milk obtained;, from animals
fed on any substance in a state of putri
faction or fermentation to be impure,
and unwholesome. . In 1884 the legisla
ture of New York passed a bill prohib
iting the . feeding of brewers' grains or
distillery slops.,; The legislature of 18S5,
of our own state, enacted* a law forbid
ding the feeding of malt or distillery
': "There are good and sufficient reasons
for such laws; Is a fact that by care
ful analysis of these products, brewers'
[grains show a large per cent of water,
are deficient in oil, protein, nitrogen
carohydrates and fats. Their universal
proneness to decomposition and fer
mentation ought to also condemn them.
The feeding of brewers' grains and
slops increases tlie watery fluids, and at
the same. time decreases the fats aud
very rapidly impoverishes the milk. .
, "Numerous authorities could be named
all of which condemn the feeding of
this stuff to cows. I wish to notice
here, however, that Dr. Schartzkopf,
our state veterinary surgeon, was called
to New Ulm last march to make an ex
amination of some cows that were re
ported to have died of hydrophobia.
After a careful study and investigation
of the case in question, the doctor
found that the cows had died from eat
ing at irregtuar intervals of too much
' malt. Brewers' grains when taken as
usually fed form into a ball in the
third stomach ; this causes indigestion,
accompanied with great pain and hydro
The Junior Socially Entertains

An. Hour's Race on tho Type-.
| writer — A Flower Festival.
j , The . flower festival of the Stenog
raphers' Business association came to
a happy termination yesterday evening.
There was a large attendance of - ladies
[and gentlemen in the evening, and the
) proceedings were of a diversified char
acter, and heartily enjoyable. 7* The
'frivolities of the evening were inter
rupted by a speed test on the : type-;
writer. Six competitors entered; two
dropped out before tha contest com
menced. The test was a "thorough"
.brie,' 'being an hour's : work
■on -the ; typewriter, the contestant
[getting the highest number of words
correctly being the winner. Misspelled'
j words, etc., did not count. Figures
'counted the same, as words.. The test
was one which the contestants them
selves agreed upon. It cannot be de
clared a fair : one, as endurance has as
much to do with the test as the ability
to manipulate the . typewriter. ' The re
sult was, J. H. Bolton. 3.711; . — Dye,
2,529; H. S. Collins, 2,437; Mrs. Withee,
2,036. Mr. Bolton was presented with a
gold medal and Mr. Dye obtained a sil
ver medal. The festival has replenished
the coffers of the association, and the
money is to be . largely devoted in fur
nishing the rooms of the organization
with a "suitable library.'

tions on License.

tionalists, in sessiou at Stillwater, adopt
ed the following resolutions on temper
ance: M 9
First— Resolved, That we believe the Con
gregational churches ought to speak iv a
more decided manner than hitherto on the
question ol temperance, and that there ought
to be a strong movement inaugurated in our
Churches for prohibition.
: Second— Resolved, That we are opposed
to the enactment of laws that propose by li
cense, taxing or otherwise to regulate- the
liquor traffic, because they* provide for its
continuance and afford no protection agaiust
its ravages.
■ Third— Resolved, That we favor the sub
mission at the next legislature of a constitu- '
tional amendment prohibiting, lhe . manu
facture and sale of intoxicating drinks.
- Fourth— Resolved, We recommend total
abstinence irom all intoxicants as the true
ground of personal temperance, and com
plete legal prohibition as the duty of govern
ment.! ..- : „■•-■ '—■".' •
Resolved, That a copy of these reso
lutions be forwarded to the tenth national
temperance convention, that is to convene in

About TO o'clock yesterday morning
little Mary Wolfgruber, two years old
and daughter of a stonemason at 271
Nugent street, wandered from home
and out upon the short line tracks at
Western . avenue. A passenger train
struck her, cutting off one of her legs
and necessitating the amputation of the
other. The engineer made an effort to
stop upon sighting the child, but was
going at too great a rate ol speed. The
little one was taken to the city hospital,
close at hand. Last night it was
thought by the hospital physician that
she had a chance lor recovery.

Makes The Weak Strong
. The way in which- Hood's Sarsapariila
builds up people in run down or weakened
state of health, conclusively proves the claim
that this medicine "makes the weak strong."
It does uot act ' like a " stimulant, [■ imparting
fictitious strength from which there must fol
low a reaction of greater weakness- than be
fore, but in the most natural way it overcomes
that tired feeliiig,' creates an appetite, puri
fies the blood,, aud, in short, gives great

bodily, nerve, mental and digestive strength.
Now is the time to take it. • .;:/
"In the spring my whole system was com
pletely run down. I began taking Hood's
Sarsapariila, and after using two bottles I
