iVHOSEQX IS GORED?
i he Park Board Investigation
Takes a Very Peculiar
Commissioner Allen Found to
Be in a Sort of Glass
Relatives of His Draw a Great
Deal of Money Through the
Wm. M. Ridg*. Seems to Have
Married at Least Once
"People who live in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones," said a spec
tator at the adjournment of the park
commission investigation last evening.
The animus of this is simply that
Commissioner Allen has beeil quite
active in bringing about an investiga
tion into the Journal's prolific charges of
nepotism against Supt. Berry. It was
charged that Mr. Berry's sons own six
teams that are In the employ
of the board. The books show
that the teams are entered the
service ostensibly as the property of the
six men who drive them, and that these
men draw the money each month. This
was denounced as most reprehensible,
and Commissioner Allen entered the
plan of making asensatioual exposition
with peculiar zest. He volunteered his
aid to do the sleuth work and he fer
reted out the evidence that was to as
tonish if not shock the city.
All yesterday afternoon* was taken up
in the investigation, and the end is not
yet in sight. Much of the evidence,
the major part, in fact, was purely ir
relevant and immaterial, still it was
waded through with stoical patience.
The drivers of the teams were ex
amined, and they testified that the teams
were on the books in their names, but
that they did not own them. One driver
said that the Journal's article was in
error in many essential particulars. He
denied ever hearing said that he had
drawn pay for time he did not actually
work for the board, although one
O'ilielly, a discharged employe of the
board, had professed to have the driv
er's written statement to that end.
Mrs. While, who is implicated in the
deal, testified that she owns four of the
six teams, and it is conceded that A. G.
Berry, son of the superintendent, owns
one team. This the Journal holds ex
ceedingly reprehensible, and an avenue
to dishonest practices.
But when Commissioner Allen took
the witness stand Commissioner Board
man sprung the sensation of the day.
Commissioner Boaidman developed the
story by placing the witness under a
scathing cross-examination. Mr. Allen
confessed that David Allen, his brother,
had received from the city $3.50 in
April, $101.59 in May, $105 In June,
$108.50 in July, **94.50 in August, and
$88.90 in September. N. Allen, the com
missioner's son, received from the city
13-50 in May, §40.25 in June, $65.63 in
July, $44.18 in August, and $7 in Sep
tember. A.E.Allen, another son, re
ceived $12 in June, $25.20 In July, $10.55
In August. W. B. Passenger, the com
missioner's father-in-law, received $3.50
in April, $101.50 in May, $105 in June,
$108.50 in July. $98 in August, and $91 in
September. S. E. Mills, a nephew, re
ceived $7 in April, $65 in May, $65 in
June, $65 in July, $65 in August, and
$65 in September, making a total of
$1,573.71 that Commissioner Allen's
family had drawn from the city.
One other point was brought out. The
superintendent sold the grass on the
board's property at the Lake of the
Isles for $25. and the money was cov
ered into the treasury of the board.
Commissioner Allen questioned the
right of the superintendent selling the
grass, whereupon Commissioner Board
man replied tartly:
"I was not aware that we had any
grass to sell, and if the superintendent
discovered it and saved $25 to the board,
I'm heartily glad of it."
W. B. Chamberlain, of the' Journal,
was one of the witnesses, and he related
an interview he had with the discharged
O'Reilly, who was a prime mover in the
rumpus. Chamberlain acknowledged
the authorship of the drastic roast on
Superintendent Berry, and then testi
fied that Berry was not the man he was
after. In other words, lie did not mean
to censure the superintendent, . but
aimed to criticise the commissioners'
methods of doing business and the in
competent records kept by the secre
MARRIED TOO MUCH.
Two Women Who Claim to Be the
Wife of a Minneapolis Man-.
William M. Ridge, who for about six
months officiated as steward at the
Nicollet house, left the city about a
week ago. and perhaps It is well
that he did, for now there are two
young women on his trail, both of whom
claim the right to call him husband.
Ridge is a fine-looking young fellow,
and soon after his arrival at the hotel
he developed a strong Interest In Helen
C. Manley. a pretty young woman em
ployed at the house as head laundress.
She returned his affection, and on Oct.
3 they were married. The honeymoon
went smoothly until a week ago, when
Ridge told his bride that he must go
East, and forthwith took his departure,
ostensibly for New York. Qn Thurs
day another young woman, aiso pre
possessing as to appearance, arrived at
the hotel and inquired for Mr. Ridge.
When she was informed that he had
gone East she stated that she was his
wife. Then things became interesting.
Mrs. Ridge from Chicago stated that she
had been married to Rfdge several years
ago, and lived with him in Chicago until
he came to Minneapolis to work at the
Nicollet, and that she had' a certificate
of marriage in her trunk. Mrs. Ridge
of Minneapolis was loth to accept the
story, and in turn showed her marriage
certificate, which she had right with
her. Mrs. Ridge from Chicago remained
in the city until last night, when she
left for Chicago, apparently relinquish
ing the field. _^
ALMOST A FATALITY.
Oliver Brusch, of Shakopee,
Struck: by a Train.
Last night the train on the lowa divis
ion of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul road brought Oliver Brusch, of
Shakopee, to the depot in this city. He
had been badly hurt in a railway acci
dent at Mendota. The . central patrol
wagon took him to the St. Anthony hos
pital, where his injuries were treated.
The left leg was broken below the knee
and the hip was frightfully bruised, and
Mr. Brusch suffered many other painful
injuries about the body and head.
To a reporter he explained that he
was on his way home. Arriving at Men
dota he saw a friend, and he alighted
from the coach to greet him. The two'
stood talking when another train sud
denly pulled up at a fast rate of speed.
He was startled and contused, and, in
stead of jumping away- from the ap
proaching train, he stepped in front of
it and was thrown with terrific . vio
lence some distance. The injuries : are
not thought to be dangerous, and the
doctors think Mr. Busch can soon be
moved to his home.
A Bold Robbery.
A very daring attempt ut robbery
took place on North Washington avenue
at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. '■■ Miss -
Ella Gibbons, who resides at 1900 Fifth
avenue north, was just emerging from

after having drawn some money, when
i a man esepped quickly up to her, ,

snatched her pocketbook from her hand
and ran with it. She was so startled
and surprised that the fellow had es
caped before she had recovered her
senses sufficiently to give an. alarm.
The pocketbook contained $20 in
money and several valuable papers.
Joseph Wheelock and Miss Jeffreys-
Lewis, in "Mr. Potter of Texas," de
lighted another large audience at the

is a quaint, original character, with life
and action : and force. The cast is un
usually strong, and the presentation is
smooth and effective.
Hallen and Hart "have "caught on" at

mendable spirit from episode to epi

is the funniest incident in it. Hallen

That farce-comedy is not on the wane
Is clearly proven by the exceptionally
large crowds that Hallen and Hart are
drawing to the Bijou through the me
dium of their vehicle of fun entitled
"The New Later On." The musical
features of this production present a
number of decided novelties, ali orig
inal and entirely new. That they are
in for a big week at the
Bijou is demonstrated by au unus
ually large advance sale. The sale of
seats opened this morning for the "Little
Lord Fauntleroy" engagement next
week. This popular dramatization of
Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett's pa
thetic story always proves a drawing
attraction for the feminine theater
goers, and it is safe to say that the mat
inee performances next week will be
largely attended. The company is a
good one and under direct management
of T. Henry French, of New York.

The lecture was illustrated by "thirty

THE LANDS OF REVOLT.
Salvator, Guatemala, Nicaragua
and Honduras Seething.
Panama, Oct. s.— Advices received
here from San Jose de Costa Rica re
port that war—is likely to break out in
the near future between Salvador and
Guatemala on the one hand and Nica
ragua and Honduras oh the other. In
this regard the Nicaraguan press speaks
of troops having been placed by Dr.
Sacasa on the Honduras frontier Under .
command of a personal enemy of Gen.
Bogran. It is also said that Guatemala
has sent troops to the Salvadorian front
ier. The official relations between
Guatemala and Salvador have been un
satisfactory during the last twelve
months. The two countries find it dif
cult to maintain peace, although the
two governments are on "friendly terms
with each other, owing to their despotic
policy toward their people.
From Guatemala also comes the rumor
of war. The Bien Publico, of Quezalte
nango, says that the relations between
Honduras and Nicaraugua threaten to
be broken at any moment. Dr. Sacasa's
sending of troops to the Honduras fron
tier under command of Gen. Garcia
compelled Gen. Bogran to send 3,000
men also to the frontier, so that the two
armies are now face to face. It is
rumored that preparations for war are
actively going on in Salvador, and that
Gen. Ezeta has organized the artillery
and sent 5,000 emn to the frontier.
Montevideo, Oct. 13.— The revo
lutionists who attempted to create a
serious disturbance here have failed in
their designs. The rioters expected to be
able to suborn the artillery corps of
the garrison, and to take possession of
the city. The conspirators fired upon
the loyal troops and expected, at this
signal, that the artillery would join
forces with them, ln this they were
disappointed. The artillerymen re
mained true to their colors, and the con
spiracy failed. The leaders of the rev
olutionary movement are vow confined
in prison, and It Is expected that they
will be summarily dealt with. In the
exchange of volleys which took place
between the revolutionists and the loyal'
troops six" men were killed and seven

THE LORDS AROUSED. :
Peers "Will Combine to Defend
London, Oct. 13.— 1t is reported that
a meeting of several of the more promi- ,
nent members of the peerage, irrespect
ive of partisan attachments, will shortly
be held to take into consideration the j.
declaration of the Liberals at Newcastle
in favor of abolishing the house of lords.
None of the peers suppose that Mr.
Gladstone would have anything to do
with the movement for the abolition of
the upper house, but it is apprehended
that, in. relation to this and other mat
ters, the Liberal party has got beyond
his control. The older peers, and sotne
of the younger, see the evils that have
tended to sap the influence of the house
of lords, and especially the absenteeism
which is now the rule. But one of the
young peers, an earl, is quoted a3 giving
mi opinion that between compulsory at
tendance and the abolition of the house
most of the lords would prefer to accept
Boulaneer _ Will.

THE VILE TURK.
Armenian Girls Seized and Held
London, Oct. 13.— From Constanti
nople comes an account of more out
rageous the Christian Armenians. The
Turks who recently carried off a num
ber of Armenian maidens, were permit
ted by the authorities to retain them,
notwithstanding the protests of their
parents, on the ground that the girls
had become converted to Mahomed
anism. As no one had a chance to see
the girls and ascertain whether the al
leged conversion had any basis of truth,
the decision was so manifestly unjust
that it created great alarm throughout
Armenia. That the alarm was justified
is proven by the fact that the abduction
and alleged conversion of Armenan
girls is now becoming an established
