Miss Nettie Genelli, of St. Paul, were
luanied yesterday morning at 10 o'clock,
at the residence of the bride's parents
on West Seventh street. Elaborate
preparations were made for the event,
•which has been for some months the
subject of conversation, the chief topic
ot interest among the friends and ac
quaintances of Miss GMielli, whose

locally famous. The romantic incident

Supt. Porter Is Doing Some Live
Washington, July 23.— About 85 per
cent of the populations for the entire
country have been received at the cen
sus bureau, and Supt. Porter hopes,
with the present rate of counting, to
have the rough estimate of the popula
tion of the country ready in a few
weeks. While the euergies of the office
are being pushed toward secur
ing the Msult of the count of
the people other inquiries connected
with the census are also being pushed
forward, and Supt. Porter hopes within
a week to begin the publication of bulle
tius giving the results of the special in
quiries. To show how well in hand the
census work is compared with ten years
ago, Supt. Porter states that about this
time ten years ago, as chief of the divis
ion of wealth and taxation, he was just
putting out the schedules, while now
the office is getting ready to announce
the results of this inquiry. Bulletins
will also soon be issued giving the

Supt. Porter Requested to
Furnish Evidence of the
Bankers, merchants, professional and
business men crowded the chamber
of commerce meeting yesterday morn
ing. The attendance of members was
the larirest for many moons, and the ab
sorbing interest taken in the proceed
ings was sufficiently indicative of the
strong feeling there exists against the
action of Snpt. Porter in ordering a re
count of St. Paul. Citizens do not fear
a recount, but they do object to one be
ing foisted on to the city by the malig
nant misrepresentation of the Minneap
olis delegation in Washington. But, to
let the citizens speak for themselves, it
may be said that no time was lost in
having the recount brought before the
chamber of commerce. Ansel Oppen
heim moved to suspend the regular
weekly business. This was agreed to,
and Capt. Castle received a request to
present a series of resolutions from the
committee on census, of which he is the
chairman. There was no mistaking the
tone of these resolutions; they went to
the root of the whole "difficulty and
placed the question before the chamber
in a bold and clear light. The resolu

States government have ordered a re-enum

Whereas, As the justification for said order
rests largely ou the palpable and extensive
fraads in the enumeration of a neighboring
city, thereby unjustly linking the two niuuic
ipalities in a common infamy, simply be
cause of an alleged rivalry between them;
Whereas, The proposed action also involves
a disgraceful stigma upon the character of
the supervisor and all the enumerators, a
stigma which should not be imposed for in
suflicient causes; it is therefore
Kesolved, By the chamber of commerce of
the city ot SL Paul, representing its citizens
in every department of business and activity,
That we indignantly protest against the issu
ance of any order for a recount of this city
based on such insufficient grounas as have
thus far been stated, or as are known to us,
and we respectfully request the suspension
of such order pending further investigations
by the census ofhcials.
Resolved, Tht\t we are assured by the cen
sus supervisor that the returns from 120 of
the 125 enumeration districts of St. Paul are
above suspicion; that we invite the most
searching examination of all these returns,
including a recount of all districts where ir
regularities are shown to exist, pledging the
cheerful and hearty co-operation of all our
people in any measure which does not imply
n advance an unwarranted assault upou
Kesolved, That if any frauds are discovered
in the course of these investigations, or at
any stage of the proceedings, we earnestly
urge that the perpetrators of such frauds be
immediately arrested, promptly tried and
broucbt to punishment, assuring the authori
ses that no public sentiment will be found
acre to screen the suspected or shield the
Resolved, That the citizens' census commit
tee are hereby authorized, and requested to
take such measures as they may deem advis
able to give practical effect to these resolu
Hearty applause greeted the resolu
tions, the sentiments expressed being
heartily indorsed by almost every one
present. There were a few who ob
jected, who aired their opinions in the
discussion which followed.
Thomas Cochran Jr. was first to take
the floor. He urged caution. Their ac
tion should not be tempered with ex
citement, passion or prejudice, but slow
pulsed and calm. He was surprised to
learn that many members of the cham
ber had not read Supt. Porter's letter
ordering a recount. For their informa
tion Mr. Cochran read the letter, which
appeared in Sunday's Globe. He
urged that the resolutions should be
thoroughly understood before being
H. P. Hall expressed the opinion that
the resolutions were a little too strong.
There had either been a fair or an un
fair count, and to object to a recount
might tend to raise the suspicion that
the St. Paul count would not stand a
rigid investigation. Though it was
grossly unjust, they should, under the
circumstances, welcome the recount as
the means of vindication.
Ansel Oppeuheim favored the resolu
tions, adding: "We do not care whether
we are recounted or not, but we want
the evidence of fraud placed before us.
We certainly should not rest quietly
under the imputation of fraud."
Georee Thompson drew attention to
the fact that, under the provisions of
the proposed count, only two or three
days would be given the new super
visor to select 125 enumerators, all of
whom would be total strangers to him.
The resolutions were, by request,
again read by Capt. Castle.who followed
up the reading witli these remarks:'! do
not think Supt. Porter, although he has
treated us square up to the present
time, is at all entitled to any thanks in
merelySacquiescius in the inevitable con
clusion which has long since been
reached by all fair-minded men, that
the Minneapolis census was a veritable
hot-bed of conspiracy."
George Thompson again spoke. He
urged that the business man of the city
should bend all their energies in secur
ing a full, fair and complete recount.
Attorney M. D. Munn pertinently re
marked that Supt. Porter should be re
quested to furnish citizens the evidence
of fraud against St. Paul, and he sug
gested an amendment to the resolutions
to that effect.
Col. J. H. Davidson moved to amend
by striking out the works: "Whereas,
such order (for a recount) involves a
charge of systematic fraud on the part
of citizens," and insert a general denial
inpiaceof a semi-admission. He was
opposed to having this foul aspersion
cast upon the honest citizens of this
E. V. Smalley next took a turn in the
discussion. He did not confine himself
to the resolutions, but touched up the
political features connected with the
ordered recorded. He roasted the Min
neapolis politicians in Washington —
Washburu, Snider, et al. — in
warm language and amid some
applause. Mr. Smalley snake with
great deliberation. The substance of
what he said is as follows: 'The mo
tive which underlies this singular let
ter of Mr. Porter's should be inquired
into. In dates back to the time wnen
the Minneapolis people issued their sec
ond directory, and a system of padding
was inaugurated which has been kept
up ever since. When these systematic
frauds were exposed there was
only one course left to adopt, and
that was to bring the combined
influence of the Minneapolis men at
the capital to get St. Paul into the same
mire. We should not only protest
against such shameful procedure ; we

should most earnestly condemn it. At
present Minneapolis is represented at
Washington by a" United States senator
whose whole heart is bound up in the
success and prosperity of that city ; a
congressman who has failed thus far to
secure an appropriation for a much
needed public building in this city, al
though other cities have secured an ap
propriation easily; an assistant secre
tary of war, an assistant secretary of
the treasury and C. W. Johnson made a
eood tif tli to this quartette of states
men, who had been occupied with but
little else during the past month
but Twin City census affairs. And
then this city was represented
by a senator who was so ignorant
of the manipulations of affairs at the
census office that he was not aware that
any recount had been ordered in St.
Paul until after such an order had been
published. Nothing but politics of the
lowest conceivable order was discerni
ble in the action of those who had suc
ceeded iv having a recount for this city
Thomas Cochran was compelled to
rise aud protest against Mr. Smalley's
speech, in so far as he referred to Con
gressman Snider. But he indorsed
everything else, and roused the enthu
siasm of those present with these vigor
ous sentences: "I declare here boldly,
that we are not willing to be made
partners in crime. Arise as with one
voice and defend the name of our city
from these foul aspersions and insinua
tions. Defend it with money, and if
that is not sufficient I would go to the
congress and president of these United
States and move heaven and earth to
have this foul wrong exposed and prop
W. E. Bramhall and F. Driseoll Sr.
also spoke. Mr. Driseoll urged that
they should present a united front to
the world. They would be unworthy
of their manhood not to demand the
evidence alleged aeainst them. The
treatment accorded St. Paul was un
paralleled. In other cities where errors
or frauds were suspected districts had
been ordered recounted, but in no case
had the whole city been re-enuraeraied.
St. Paul was smirched to save Minne
The various amendments were with
drawn and the resolutions adopted in
their entirety. They were immediately
wired to Washington.
Gen. Sanborn had read the following
telegram, which speaks for itself:
Washington, July 28.— Gen. John B. San
born, St. Paul : I have proceeded upon the
very strong recommendations of the superin
tendent of census to order a recount iv your
city. Your people should demand it, and
will eventually see that it,s best. Noble.
The reading of the telegram met with
hisses. Gen. Bishop regarded it as aa
insult to the city, and, upon his motion,
it was referred to the executive com
nritte to send a reply.
The meeting thereupon broke up.
ON TO WASHINGTON.
A Committee Said to Have Left to
Interview Porter and Noble.
After the adjournment of the chamber
of commerce the executive committee
appointed to carry out the provisions of
the resolutions adopted held a meeting.
The action taken was not made public.
During the afternoon there was
al«o a meeting of the special census
committee. The line of policy to be
pursued by it will be made known as
results develop. It is known that a
committee is on its way to Washington
to ask for a disclosure of the facts
which induced the secretary of the inte
rior to classify St. Paul with Minneapo
lis in the order for a recount. The au
thorities at Washington will be asked
to make a thorough and searching in
vestigatipn into the St. Paul census re
turns, and if fraud is discovered in any
section or all of the .city the govern
ment will be assured of the hearty co
operation and aid of the St. Paul citi
izens in discovering the perpetrators of
the fraud, and in punishing the offend
ers. The St. Paul people are
unanimous in the sentiment that
it is not justice to Supervisor
Smith and the people to order a recount
of the entire city without investigation.
They also insist that a rigid investiga
tion may be made, iv which they will
offer all possible aid. The feeling
among business men is that a recount
will increase the enumeration, and are
anxious for a recount on that score, but
not on the line laid down in the order of
Secretary Noble. A number of mem
bers of the committee approve the rec
ommendation of Supervisor Smith, in
recounting the two districts which were
taken by special agents sent out from
Washington, and over which Mr. Smith
had no control, and to re-enumerate the
district which Supervisor Smith claimed
there appeared to be fraud on the part
of the enumerator, but all agree that
those three districts argued nothing in
favor of a recount of the whole city.
Capt. Wethern, of the 111-Pated
Sea Wing, Undergoes a Rigid
The investigation into the Sea W ing
disaster at Lake Pepin was continued
yesterday. Capt. Monohan, of Duluth,
cross-examined Capt. Wethern, who
said he had been on the river occasion
ally for six years before being licensed
as a pilot. He had been on the river to
learn it, but not employed for pay ex
cept one triD. His application for
license was signed by Captains A. J.
Youns and Charles Meade. He was on
the John Langford at one time when
it was laid up six hours on account of
wind. He had not been employed on a
boat before he got his license. He was
only on those boats for fun and to iearu
Capt. Monohan then questioned him
as to the regulations requiring proper
officers on the Sea Wing.
Capt. Wethern replied that he did not
try to secure a pilot on the day of the ex
cursion. He did not know that his ex
cursion permit and certificate of inspec
tion required the boat to carry more
than one piiot. He thought if the mas
ter was a pilot that was sufficient.
A Globe reporter made an examina
tion of the certificnte of inspection of
the Sea Wing under which Capt. Weth
ern was acting, and found that it re
quires one master, one pilot, one other
pilot, one mate, two engineers and a
crew of ten men.
Capt. Wethern said he did not know
what his excursion permit said with re
gard to a sufficient crew to properly
handle and man the life boats. He had
read it over, but did not notice those
requirements. He had a crew of five
Among other things Robert B. Adams
testified that he was on the Sea Wing
at the time of the capsizing. He and
about ten others put on life preservers
when they got about a mile from Lake
City. Some one of the officers passed
along the boiler deck and, to those put
ting on life preservers, made the re
mark: "You are frightening the la
dies." He recognized Capt. Wethren
as the one who made the remark. When
the storm came the boat was headed up
the lake, and then she turned to the
right and headed for the Wisconsin
Capt. Wethern was recalled and stated
that a man named Jim Wilson was on
the boat who had a long black beard
like himself,and it might have been he
who spoke about scaring the passengers.
He was intending to run the boat under
the point when he saw the storm com
ing, but it caught him too quick. He
did not see the storm coming until a
minute and a half before it struck the
boat. He knew there was a strong wind
blowing, but did not think it a storm.
He thought the boat would have stood
the storm if he had kept it headed be
fore the wind. Ah important point was
made when he stated that he did not
advise people to put on life preservers
because he did not think there was any
immediate danger, and lie did not know

So spoke one of the best-known Re
publicans in the state at the Merchants'
yesterday afternoon. This gentleman,
while a Republican, is an enthusiastic
tariff reductionist, and does not hesitate
to speak his mind on this subject. Ex-
Railroad Commissioner S. S. Murdock,
for that is his name, has lone; made a
careful study of the tariff question, es
pecially as to its effect ou the farmers
of the West, and believes that the neces
sity for a thorough reform and reduction
of the present war tariff: is imperative in
the interests of all classes of people.and
especially is this so in the case of the
"I think the comparison of the tariff
plank adopted by the late Republican
state convention to an Ivory soap ad
vertisement is a good one," said Mr.
aim-dock to a Globe man yesterday.
"It certainly does attempt to look five
directions at once and read as many
different things. As a straddle it is a
lamentable failure and a misfortune to
the party that indorsed it. There oueht
to be no question to-day about the posi
tion of the people of this state upon the
tariff question. We are all tariff re
ductionists. Go where you will through
out the length and breadth of this state,
and everywhere you will find all well
informed men "advocating and argu
ing for a reduction of the tar
iff. The McKinley bill is de
nounced everywhere save at the meet
ings of the Republican ' congressional
conventions, and I believe that the peo
ple will pass on the nominees of these
conventions in a way that will make
even those bodies wish they had spoken
out in denunciation of that infamous
measure. I cell you the country is alive
on this question."
"What do you think will be the effect
of the attempt of the late Republican
convention to make this campaign on
state issues?" asked the reporter.
"I think it will react and utterly fail
to accomplish its purpose," was the
reply. "Thinking men know the issues
that are really in this campaign, and
they will regard this attempt to do4ge
as a species of legerdemain— as, by
the way. it was so intended by the^
author of that platform. The tarfff willf
be the leading issue in all the Western;
states this year. The McKinley biljt has

Joel P. Heatwoiey the next state chair
man of the Republican state committee. 1
came up from Northfield yesterday^ aiid;
took syvhirl around the city, returning:,
honunfeain in the evening. Joel looked
particularly "smooth" yesterday, al-.
though he was unable to assume the
very "wise" look of that astute man
ager, ex-Chairman Stanford Newel.
Mr. Heatwole is great on posing, how
ever, greater than even the great Newel,
and he may make up in this respect in
some way for what he may lack of thai
great leader's abiiity in other lines. The
new committee has not been given out
yet. according to Mr. Heatwole, and
will not be named for several days yet.
Democrats generally do not take
kindly to the idea advocated by several
political free lances of "indorsing the
Alliance nominee; and it may safely be
taken for granted that Mr. Owen's name
will never be : broached in the Demo
cratic state convention, when it meets.
"Why," said a veteran Democrat yes
terday, "such a thing '■ is absurd. *The

that he ought to consent ;to run.".' Mr.

from the task. "In my opinion," he
said to a Globe reporter, "this is" the
most important district in the United
States, and if a man attempts to do his
full duty he has an immense job on his
hands. Ido not care to undertake it,
