SAINT PAUL.
PHASES OF LIFE.
John G. Stone, of Pine City, who was
one of the witnesses to the Brooker exe
cution by special request of tlie mur
derer, and whose solicitude on behalf of
the visiting newspaper men on that oc
casion was characteristic of him, is a
Grand Army man, and probably one of
the best preserved of the army fighters
to whose prowess the nation owes, its
unity. During the war he was special
correspondent of several of the leading
dailies in Boston, New York and Phila
delphia, and attained a wide reputation
as a writer of descriptive ability. Since
locating in Pine City he has become the
regular correspondent of the Globe,
besides representing dailies in Chicago,
Duluth, and many other cities.
Conductor Leonard, of the Duluth
Train No. 6, has a manner of showing
his authority to the patrons of the road
which is hardly appreciated by the lat
ter as the company's employe doubtless
intends it should be. A . party of three
newspaper men sought to make a writ
ing desk of a trunk in the baggage car
one morning -last week, which was, of
course, presumptuous ou the part ot the
"gang," but almost excusable uuder the
circumstances. The boys had just got
to work in good shape when the gentle
man wearing gold lace and a chronic
frown entered the car.
"This ain't no place for you fellows;
I propose to occupy this car myself." he
began. "There's a place for you in the
coach, and the sooner you get there the
better," was the way he concluded.
There was no trouble about it. The au
tocrat of the train had the bulge, and
the newspaper men walked out; but, as
one of the crowd remarked on taking
his seat again in the coach, "There's a
good time coming."
Dr, Came, who attended Brooker, the
Pine City murderer, while the latter
was in Stillwater, is a friend of the
newspaper, as was evinced on the day
of the execution. Brooker had an
nounced his intention of making his
final deposition on the scaffold, which
would have so delayed the proceedings
that neither the fact of the execution
nor the confession would have found
their way into the morning papers, ow
ing to the lateness of the hour. Dr.
Came had a great influence over the
murderer, and this he exercised in in
ducing Brooker to dictate his confes
sion for the press hours before he was
marched to the scaffold.

JURIST AND CITIZEN
Judge Miller, of the United
States Supreme Court, Ar
rives in St. Paul, i-
For a Few Weeks He Will
Guide the Destinies of
the Circuit Court.
He Refuses to Talk About the
Famous Original Pack
age Decision.
Breezy Interview With the
Judge on a Variety of
Other Topics.
"Some years ago," said Judge Sam ue
F. Miller, of the United States supreme
court, as he mopped the perspiration
from his brow in his cosy apartments
at the Ryan yesterday afternoon, "1
fixed on this season of the year as the
SAMUEL F. MILLER.
date for my term of court here, simply
to have a cool place to spend a
few weeks of the heated season. I
find, however, that I made a mistake
this time, for it is about as warm as it
can get here just now. This is unusual
at least I have found it so in my expe
rience, and I hope for cooler weather
before I get through with my duties."
Although past three score and ten
years of age, Judge Miller has the same
keen, intellectual look that has distin
guished him as one of the greatest
jurists of the age in the years that he
has sat upon the bench of the highest
judicial tribunal", in the Union,
and has the appearance of giving
many more years of service to
the country in his present capacity.
His full, round face bears compara
tively few wrinkles, and were it not for
the many white hairs which cluster
around the base of his massive head no
one would judge him to be over sixty
years of age. When the Globe re
porter was ushered into the presence of
the distinguished lowan he was reading
a newspaper by the aid of a
pair of spectacles of extraordinary
size. He at once laid aside his
paper, and, with a smile as kindly as it
was unexpected, bade his visitor to be
seated. The weather was discussed
first, of course, and then, in reply to a
question by the reporter, the judge
said:
"This is, as you know, my annual
trip to St. Paul, and I expect to spend
about two weeks. From here I shall go
on to Omaha, and thence to Denver,
in both of which places I will
hold terms of the circuit court.
I have just finished a term of two weeks
in Keokuk, 10., and have not been in
Washington for nearly three weeks."
"How are the people of lowa taking
to the 'original package decision,' from
your observation, judge?" asked the re
porter unthinkingly in a lull in the con
versation.
"I must decline to talk on that sub
ject, sir," remarked the great lawyer
stiffly, as he straightened himself up and
gazed out of the window of his room.
"I find it is bad enough to write those
decisions without talking about" them
afterwards."
This was a warning for the reporter,
and the conversation was turned mo
ther channels, and the judge was soon
chatting as good liumoredly as ever.
"Although there are three justices on
the bench," he said in answer to a
query, "who are past the age at which
they could be retired, I do not anticipate
that any of them will avail themselves of
this privilege at present or during this
administration. The three are Judges
Field, Bradley and myself. All are
able to do their share of the work, and
they have the idea that it wouldn't be
quite right to retire as long as they can
ao this. 1 know last year I wrote as
many opinions as any of the other jus
tices, some of them quite important
ones, too, among them the opinion in
the case of Marshal Nagle for the shoot
ing of Judge Terry." . -.X- -7- Xi
"When will congress adjourn, In your
opinion?" asked the reporter. : . .
"Well, you know as much about that
as I do," was the reply. ': "I •- do not
think that it will do so before Septem
ber. The senators all live in Washing
ton and do not care much whether they
adjourn at all. In the house it is quite
different, as many of the members will
want to be in their districts before the
November elections. . By the way, who
is your congressman now?" .
The reporter modestly stated that
Capt. Snider, of Minneapolis, was try
ing to hold down the job at present, and
Judge Miller broke in with the remark:
"Yes, I believe he did -defeat Edmund
Rice two years ago. I was very well
acquainted with Mr. Rice, and also with
his brother, Hon. Henry M. Rice. Does
Senator Rice take much interest in poli
tics now?" ' '^ : . -- if
The dirtinguished Minnesotan's serv
services as a member of the commission
which negotiated the treaty with the
Red Lake and other bands of Chippewa
Indians last year were mentioned, and
called up a flood of recollections in the
mind of Judge Miller, and he inquired
about the health of Senator Rice. - "He
was in the senate in 1862 or 1863," he
said, "aud 1 remember he was then in
very poor health."
The tariff question came up and the
course of certain newspaper organs
which are against protection nine
months in the year and for protection
the other three was commented upon,
the Judge remarking that all such
f tapers had an "example set for them
n this respeat by the Chicago
Tribune. 1 am a little surprised
that manufacturing cities like Min
neapolis and St. Paul do not feel
more kindly toward protection," he
continued, "as one generally expects to
find that sentiment strongest in such
communities. These two cities ought to
be united. Their growth is bound to be
toward each other. Of course the cities
have different interests, for while Min
neapolis is a manufacturing place St.
Paul is a jobbing center, but this is all
the more reason for a union."
This ended the very pleasant inter
view, and the judge, iv his most courte
ous manner, escorted the reporter to
the door. HHTHO.I if"
Mrs. Miller, a pleasant lady with hair
just streaked with silver, accompanies
the judge on this trip and is also at the

Young People's . Society of Christian
Endeavor, but the" programme was >' a
complete failure. ;• Tbere were few ;of
its members present, and the preacher,
Dr. Wayland Hoyt, . failed to make ;an
appearance. But quickly speakers were
found, and in results there has been no
greater, meeting on the camp ground
this year. The preacher .Was Rev. Dr.
William McKinley, but the talking- was
not confined to him, for they had what
the Salvation Army calls a "hallelujah
breakfast." The evening service was
conducted by Rev. Mr. Teter, of Minne

This year's camp meeting has been
remarkably successful in only one line,
and that has been the great feeling
which has accompanied all the meet
ings. It has been a great one for church
members. There is no thought of * dis
continuing this camp meeting. For an
other year it has been determined to
secure the services of some renowned
evangelist or speaker. Possibly this
man will be Rev. Sam Small.
PLEA FOR PUBLIC BATHS.
An Opportunity for a Philan
thropic Citizen.
To the Editor of the Globe.
A plea for baths for boys. Arrested ! for
what? For doing that which is as nat
ural for the average boy as it is for
young ducks. Just go out on one of the
railroads, or even the electric line, and
you will see even mud holes used by
the little fellows ■ who love to splash.
The writer of this has pleaded with
persons, so far in vain, to interest them
selves in this matter. Of course ; those
having baths in their houses and who
can afford to keep their children clean,
don't need the riv«r, but there are hun
dreds of perspiring people who would
be better for a good wash. I only plead
for the boys. A swimming bath could
be built, lam sure, at small cost, and;
there might be a charge of five cents
admission. And if a teacher could b3
engaged to teach the boys to swim, it
would save many to add to the next
census. _ Aqua.
HUGE RAILROAD DEAL,
Council Committee on Streets
Enlightened Upon a Stu
■- v-' pendous Undertaking..
Wisconsin Central Tracks to
Be Laid Between Fifth and
Sixth Streets,
Beginning: at Brook Street
and Running as Far as
Broadway.
Adjoining Realty Purchased,
on Which Warehouses
Will Be Erected.
Oratory and legal lore floated about in
the room of the council committee on
streets last evening, in utter disregard
of the torrid temperature. It was the
most important meeting of the commit
tee since the days of the electric tram
way franchises, and the session was
prolonged for two hours and a half.
The Wisconsin Central road, through
Attorney Bullitt, of the Northern Pa -
cific, and Real Estate Agent McMurran
called the committee's attention to its
desire to lay tracks in the alley between
Fifth aud Sixth streets, from Brook
street to Broadway. All the' abutting
property has been acquired and the
purpose is to sink the tracks twenty
feet below the surface level of cross
streets and build large warehouses
all along the line for the ■ ac
commodation of the jobbing trade. The
track wiil cost $250,000, and $800,000 has
already been invested in the, realty to
be occupied with buildings. The plan
was exclusively mentioned in the
Globe during the time the deals for the
property were going on. As the com
mittee could not consider it until first
presented to the main body, an ordi
nance covering what is desired will be
introduced in the council on Tuesday
evening next.
The ordinance of the Milwaukee road
vacating certain streets on the upper
river flats took up the greatest amount
of time. The ordinance passed .the
council, and was vetoed by Mayor Smith
on the ground that the law relating to
the vacation of stre ts had not been
complied with, and the whole matter
was sent to the streets committee. At
torneys Bra'mwell,Horn and Chittenden
and I. P.Wright opposed the ordinance
strongly, saying that it would further
depreciate the value of property in the
vicinity of Irvine park, las the smoke
nuisance was all but an intolerable one
under the ppesent state of affairs.
They asserted that the thing had
been suddenly sprung, and citizens
knew nothing of it until their attention
was called to it by the veto of the
mayor. Solicitor Norris, for the road,
declared that the gentlemen could not
have read their morning papers, since
the public prints had followed it from
its announcement to the present time.
He argued forcibly, and declared that
the bottom land in that quarter was
unfit for any use but factories or rail
road purposes. The smoke nuisance
complained of he knew nothing about,
but it seemed the city had not been suc
cessful In abating it in localities other
than Irvine park. The legal phase of
the question came in for a full con
sideration by both sides. Eventually
the matter went over until July 11 for
further consideration.
A Mr. Snell, who lives near the high
bridge, represented the sickening nui
sance to the people thereabouts arising
from the rendering establishment of
McMillan's packing house and the Azo
tine Manufacturing company plant. A
petition from the people asking that
McMillan's establishment (some time
ago burned out) be not rebuilt, brought
the matter up, but it could not be acted
upon, since the plant has been already
reconstructed. A petition is to be pre
sented asking that steps be taken to
abate the various odors arising from the
establishments, until which time noth
ing can be done.
An ordinance providing for the in
spection of meat, the appointment of in
spectors for that purpose, to be paid by
the imposing of fines on dealers, was
laid over until typewriter copies could
be furnished the members.
A favorable report to council was
made upon the ordinance providing for
the inspection of milk, the appointment
of an experienced chemist therefor and
sub-inspectors. Dr. Hoyt stated that
the state dairy commission had
urged bim to take such a step,
and Dairyman Curry favored it. Dr.
Swartzkopf, state veterinarian, was in
clined to favor the A appointment of ' a
person competent to inspect animals,
and detailed the effect upon milk
caused by a diseased or unhealthy ani
mal.

"There is only one way to keep even
with such weather as this," remarked a
young lady I met the other day, as she
fanned herself vigorously and at regu
lar intervals applied a somewhat wilted
cambric to her handsome face.
"Put me on," 1 exclaimed. "I'm a
long way behind the game," and then
remembering that she possibly would
not understand the request in that form,
I besought her in language less modern
to explain her method of keeping cool;
under a register of 95 in the shade. ... '
"Do you really want to know how I •
pass the time on a day like this?" she
said. "Well, it is simple enough. In
my bedroom there is a bath, with hot
and cold water attachment. My maid

is under instructions to have a tepid
bath ready for me every hour until fur
ther oraers, and I think I have taken
seven separate and distinct baths since
this morning. Now do you see through
the scheme? It's the greatest way of
keeping cool I ever heard of." .c
. "Must be very troublesome to dress
and undress so many times," I ven
tured, glancing at the loose white wrap
per which enveloped her form. -X
"The fact is" she replied, pulling
the drapery closer about her, "the fact
is, that— er;" and then she blushed a
little pink blush and I concluded to ask
no more questions about how she kept
cool.
It is curious to note how differently
the heat affects different people. Who!
is there who has not met the aggravat
ingly fireproof individual, he who can
sit undisturbed in even the most tropi
cal heat without even wilting his col
lar, and who smiles with commiseration
upon the fat man in the same office as
the latter mops his forehead aud cusses
the torrid wave. The thin man is at his
element. Winter withers him with its
icy breath, and he is miserable as long
as the mercury hangs down around
zero, but this tropical heat is his long
suit, and he has the laugh on the rest or
creation for the time being. It is
strange, but nevertheless true, that
those who suffer most with the
heat are the ones who perform
the least physical labor. -. The street
laborer shovels away all daylong, per
spires freely and is cool, while the fore
man of the gang stands near doing
nothing beyond maintaining a general
supervision of the workers, and if any
get sunstruck he will be the first to fall.
My lady of the mansion on the hill fans
herself vigorously and cannot keep cool
even then, while her maid bustles about
doing a thousand and one things that
maids have to do, ; and would tell you,
should you ask her, that she scarcely'
feels the heat at all.
The heated atmosphere of yesterday
was directly responsible for an acci
dent which, but for the evident dismay"
of the half-dozen fair victims of a
capricious climate, would have : been
laughable in the extreme. There was a
picnic at Bald Eagle lake, -and a bevy
of pretty girls of the lower town set had
donned their airy summer regalia of
white. The lake was reached without
a hitch, and it was not until the middle
of the lake had been reached - that ' one
of the valiant oarsmen in charge re T(
marked that it looked like rain. His
remark was ; quickly followed by the
rain itself, arid such a shower as it "was!
It seemed that the floodgates of heaven
had been pulled wjde open, and
when the boating "party reached
the pier from which so gay a start had
been, made a short time before, each
member of the aggregation was a sight
for a fond father. Those lovely white ;
dresses were drenched through and
through. They could not come back to
town in that condition— was not to be
thought of for a moment— so the next
best thing was to make a raid on the
wardrobes of the vicinity. Kindhearted:
old Mrs. Smith, . the farmer's wife,
trotted out a mother hubbard which
once had adorned her own portly forn^
I never saw : anything funnier than
the; efforts of a well known young,,
lady to appear at ease when attired in
that mother hubbard ! It was very
short and frightfully broad in the bearaj
but there was ouly one thing to do- she
must wear that rig to town;; A rather
tall young lady, whose weakest points
are her ankles, dawned on the world
after a period of ' seclusion got up in a
cotton dress, the property of the farm
er's fourteen-year-old daughter. The
dress was about nine inches too short
for her, and those ankles were exposed'
to the gaze of an unsympathetic world.
Another young lady of the party api
peared in an ulster of some brown
checked stuff, the winter wrap of an
other member of Farmer Smith's fam
ily; and so it went. .-*-
A more thoroughly subdued crowd of
young ladies was never , seen, and as
they boarded . the -train for home the
car was interested in their quaint garb.
They had to stand it until St. Paul was
reached, and then ; a couple of , hacks
were chartered to convey them to .'their
respective homes. .-••
: i.-'l r met ..." one of the party again last :
evening at a tennis party, and : asked if
there had been any evil result from her
experience of the afternoon. / \o
• "None," she : replied; "except that ~ I
have struck Bald Eagle off « my list and
registered a solemn vow never to go to
a lake again without a gossamer, a com
plete change of clothing and a special
train."

A fate similar to the one above illustrated awaits
all deluded and deceived dealers who sell buggies
under the title "Daisy." x: J. H. MAHLER.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE.
Much as I should regret to proceed against any Carriage
dealer (most of whom are my former or present customers) in
the courts, I shall certainly do so in every case where a violas
tion of my rights comes to my knowledge. fijj|
1 refer to the name "DAISY" as applied to spring vehk
cles. This name is MINE. The United States Patent Commis
sioner says so, in a document issued to me June 3d, 1890.
Whoever uses that name as applied to spring vehicles does so
at his risk. In other words, he provokes WAR, and will have
WAR. Ido not propose to confine myself to manufacturers
alone, but shall also proceed against dealers, both large and
small. Dealers will do well to demand from manufacturers
of spurious "Daisy" Buggies SOMETHING MORE substantial
than hollow promises of protection before venturing to sell
buggies under the name of "DAISY."
Dealers will kindly read the following
HSrOTIOE
I, the undersigned, James H. Mahler, of St. Paul, Minn., give notice that I
have received from the United States Patent Offlce a certificate of the register of
a trademark for buggies and other spring vehicles, which said trademark is num*
bered 18,002, and dated June 3d, 1890, and that said trademark gives to me ex*
clusively the right and authority to use the arbitrarily selected word "DAISY"
as applied to buggies, road wagons and other spring vehicles, and the exclusive
right to use the word "DAISY" on the steps of any spring vehicle, as well as oa
the metal name-plate attached to said vehicle.
You will therefore IMMEDIATEDY CEASE from advertising or selling any
spring vehicles of any kind or nature under the title of "DAISY", or any similar
name, or of such near resemblance thereto as might be calculated to deceive:
aud also to cease from using or selling any vehicle steps with the name "DAISY*
thereon, or any name-plate on any vehicle with the word "DAISY" engraved of
stamped thereon, UNDER THE PENALTY OF THE LAW.
Given under my hand and seal this 6th day of June, 1890, at St. Paul, Mirn. .
: JAMES H. MAHLER, [Seal.]
Proprietor of Said Registered Trademark. -
The above affords to me the same protection as does a valid
patent to an inventor, and foolhardy is the man who, being, in
formed of my rights, does not immediately cease selling bogus
"DAISY" Buggies, and secure the agency for the GENUINE;
thereby getting a vastly superior article at but a slightly
higher price, and free from all legal complications. ■,;'
That the Genuine
IMPROVED "DAISY" BUGGIES
Are far superior in quality, style and finish to the buggies '■■'
formerly sold by me under that name is conceded by the pres- 1
ent manufacturers of the latter, as they made no reply to my*
challenge for a public comparison of the respective merits of}
the buggies published by me some time since. jl
It will be observed by the trade that since the failure of ;
the original Ovid concern, who manufactured the old "Daisy*,
forme, and since the incorporation of their successors, they
have nothing to say in their advertisements concerning the
merits of their goods. This is significant. i
We find it next to impossible to sell Ovid buggies. We
have on hand over seventy-five of them, which we have fre
quently advertised to sell at slaughter prices, but can find no
purchasers. Dealers prefer the
GEWUIMEIMPRDVED "DAISY"
