Then the Council, for Once, Settled Down and Actual ly Did Business. Tim Byrnes Explains Some More for the Benefit of the Jury. Death of a Child From Taking a Dose of Concentrated Lye. The council chamber was crowded to the very doois last night with an ex pectant crowd, which anticipated a three-ring circus performance with a conceit afterward, such as took place on the occasion of the last meeting. The spectators were doomed to disap pointment, however, for, wonderful to relate, the aldermen were in a humor for business ami not for wrangling. Al though important matters came up, they were disposed of in the most ex edltious manner. The attempt of the Republican alder men to kill the amended liquor ordi nance was knocked in the head with as little ado as generally attends the pas sage of a resolution ordering a street lamp. The Kiichli transfer ordinance, which it was supposed would also cause a bitter war of words, also fell Hat, and at !) o'clock the business, big and little, was all out of the way and an adjourn ment taken. As was expected, the Republican alderman attempted to kill the recently adopted amendment to the liquor or dinance by the passage of a motion to. axpunge from the records of the meet ing all that portion of the proceedings which transpired subsequent to the time when the meeting was pronounced adjourned by Chairman Pro I'eni Lovell. Aid. Brazie made the motion as soon as the meeting had been called to order, and he had no sooner finished speaking than there was an objection from Aid. Kiichli. who led the Democratic forces ill the tight on this question at the last meeting. Aid. Kiichli said: Kifcliii Objects. "I object to any such motion. An ordinance cannot be wiped out in any such manner." Notwithstanding the objection tha motion was put, but it was promptly killed by a vote of 14 to 11, all of the* Republican aldermen who had pre viously voted for the measure being in their places and "standing pat," ex cepting Aid. Woodward, who avoided the issue by waiting iv the hall behind the crowd until after the vote had been taken and announced. Aid. Kiichli evidently came to the meeting with blood in his eye, and as soon as there was a lull in the proceed ings after the reading of reports ot com mittees he arose, and, in the most de terminen tone, called for a report from the special committee to which had been referred the ordinance requiring the street railway company to extend its transfer facilities. It was plain to be seen that Kiiolili Was Mad and intended to make trouble, but Aid. Biadish, chairman of the committee, made an explanatory report, which poured oil upon the troubled waters. He stated that a meeting of the commit tee had been called, but, owing to the absence of Aid. Barrows from the city and unavoidable engagements on the part of others, there was not a quorum present. He assured Aid. Kiichli, how ever, that the committee proposed to give the ordinance due consideration, and would report as early as possible. Bj way of a parting shot Aid. Kiichli gave notice that if the committee did not report at the next meeting lie would withdraw the ordinance. The nearest Approach to a Fight was occasioned by a resolution by Aid. Schwartz, instructing the city clerk to advertise for bids for a site for an en gine house in North Minneapolis, some where between Twenty-ninth and Thir ty-sixth avenues north. Even this, however, only provoked an earnest dis cussion which was participated In by Aid. Swartz and Hay lies', who favored the resolution on the ground that the sawmills in North Minneapolis needed, and should be afforded, better fire pro tection, and Aid. Love, Biadish and Gray who opposed it on the ground that the funds were not available at this time. It was finally referred to the committee on ways and means. An ordinance was introduced by Aid. Rand which provided that on the "public work of the city, where the same is done by the day, eight hours shall constitute a day's work and *1.65 cents shall be the minimum clay's pay, after April next. This ordinance also provides that the laborers shall be paid every two weeks instead of every month, as at present, and states that none of its pro visions shall be construed to refer to those of the city's employes who have fixed salaries or are employed by the month or year or to work done under contract. It was referred without dis cussion to a committee composed of one alderman from each ward, which was appointed from the chair, and com prises Aid. Durnam, Ingenhutt, Bar rows, Love, Lovell, Kami, Parry, Flan ders, McGuire, Reeves, Lackey, Peter son and Gray. A resolution by Aid. Farnsworth. pro viding that more commodious quarters be secured for the police signal service, as the room used at present will not ac commodate the new switch board and apparatus, was referred to the commit tee on public grounds and buildings. A communication was received from the board of charities and corrections which set forth the great need of a new city hospital, and urged the council to authorize the issue of 525.000 of bonds for that purpose, provided for by the last legislature. It was referred to the committee on ways and meaus. TIM'S TALK CONTINUED. Another Day of the Organizer's Trial for Forgery. The Byrnes forgery trial was resumed in Judge Lochren's court yesterday,and it attracted a large crowd to the court house. As soon as court convened Mr.Byrnes took the witness sfand and continued his testimony, which was begun late Thursday afternoon. In regard to his conversation with Mr. Goodrich about the important witness.es in the case, he said that Mr. Goodrich first suggested the matter, and told him that if he would keep away from the civil trial, arrangements might be made to keep Mrs. Goodrich and Mrs. Knight away from the criminal trial. Byrnes said he refused to enter into the araange inent suggested by Mr. Goodrich.where upon the old gentleman became a little bit wrathy. "I told Mr. Goodrich," said Tim, "that such an arrangement could affect me but little. Judging from the way the civil suit was being conducted, 1 knew the most serious reflections were being made against my character, and therefore 1 was very anxious to have the criminal case, fully investigated. I wanted both Mrs. Goodrich and Mrs. Knight to testify in this case and tell what they knew.for I did not want to be acquitted by this jury and ever hear it said that it might have been different had those ladies testified. I did not want the old Scotch verdict— 'guilty, but not proven'— hanging over me." After Tim had delivered the above explanation of Mr. Goodrich's sensa tional testimony of the day before, he was drawn over the Mackey'loan matter by his attorneys. He said that he had to sai»c money quickly to meet an East THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORXTNO, FEBRUARY l>7, 1802. ern obligation and been helped out by a loiiuof $l>,ooo from Mr. Mackey. He gave Mr. Mackey his personal note for the amount, due fifteen days aftttf date. The power of attorney, executed by Mr. and Mrs. Goodrich in favor of Byrnes, was then introduced. The in strument was put in evidence. It was dated April 24, 1886, And was filed in the office of the register of deeds June 3, 1880. Upon the back the following indorsement was written in ink: "The within power of attorney revoked May 10. 1880, at fp:§o4. n>." Upon cross-examination, Mr. Thian asked Mr. Byrnes to explain why he told Mrs. Knight, in Chicago, that he was tired of hearing insinuations against him. Byrnes replied that lie had heard insinuations, and thought he was justi fied iv speaking to Mrs. Knight as he did. Mr. Thian went over the story told by Tim about his negotiations with K. G. Evans. Byrnes said that h« and Evans were talking about a trade of property, and that he expected to trade some of the Evergreen lots to Mr. Evans for some lots back of Lowry's hill. When questioned as to the particulars about the negotiations and the Evans prop erty, Mr. Byrnes' memory was fouud to be rather bad. In running over the Mackey loan af fair Mr. Thian asked the sarcastic ques tion : ••Mackey is the 10 per cent a month man. isn't he?" "No, lie rs not," answered Tim. firm ly, and pointing to the county attorney he continued: "You have thrown out a mean insin uation about Mackey. 1 want to say that Mackey got the money fairly and gave it to me, and the loan was paid. Mackey wasn't in the 10 per cent a month business at all. He didn't charge me a cent for the loan." Mr. Thian then introduced as evi dence the revocation of the power of at torney given to Byrnes by Mr. and Mrs. Goodrich. It was signed by all parties on Oct. 8, 1887. Mr. Jamison ques tioned the validity of the instrument ou the ground that it was not signed in the presence of any notary public, other than Mr. Byrnes, who was one of the parties directly interested iv it. The cross-examination of Mr. Byrnes was not concluded until 3 o'clock in the afternoon. He stood by his original story, told at the trial of the civil suit, very closely, and the sharpness of Mr. Thian had very little effect upon his evidence. Mrs. Byrnes, the wife of the defend ant, was the next witness called by Mr. Jamison. She was present at the time Mr. Goodrich and Mr. Byrnes had that interesting interview at the Holmes hotel, and she fully substantiated her husband's version of the affair. "In substance," she said, "Mr. Goodrieh told Mr. Byrnes that if we stayed away from the civil case he would see that Mrs. Knight and mother stayed away from the criminal trial." Dan Byrnes was called next. He said that lie W2iit to the court house on Oct. 12, 1887, to get the numbers of the pages upon which the Evergreen mortgages were recorded. When he returned to the office with the numbers he read them off while Tim wrote them on the satisfactions, which he took to Chi cago that same night to be signed by Mrs. Goodrich. Dan declared that he saw Tim write each figure on the satisfactions. His testimony was exactly in line with Tim's on this point. Mr. Thian en deavored to confuse Dan on cross-exam ination, but failed. The defense rested at this point and Mr. Thian began his rebuttal by calling Mrs. Goolrich to the stand again. She declared that the revocation of the power of attorney was signed on Oct. 8, 1887, and handed to Tim, who was ex pected to have it recorded immediately. Mr. Goodricli was recalled, and testified to the same matter in the same way. The trial will be continued today. A TERRIBLE DEATH. Baby Killed by a Dose of Concen trated Lye. Martin Olson, the ten-months-old son of Oliver Olson, of 2007 Twelfth avenue south, died Thursday afternoon under peculiarly distressing circumstances. The little fellow went to sleep, as was usual in the afternoon, on a couple of chairs which his mother fixed for him near the kitchen sink, where she was at work. The mother was called away a few moments later,and as the baby was apparently sleeping soundly she felt no hesitancy in leaving him alone. While she was gone, however, he awoke, and, crawling up to the edge of the sink, picked up a can of concentrated lye which had been left there, took* a swallow from it. When Mrs. Olson returned to the room she found him in convulsions, and although Dr. l*. M. Hall was promptly on hand and applied every possible remedy, he died in forty- Jive minutes in the'most excruciating agony. The mother is plunged in grief and reproaches herself for what she con siders almost, criminal carelessness on her part, although she was only gone from the room for a few moments. She states that this was the first time she had left the baby alone since its birth, as it had always been deiicate. MRS. GLISTER'S CHOICE. She Went to the Workhouse and Thereby Saved $5. The particulars of the family row be tween Pat and Mrs. Glaster at the Washington avenue bottling house on Wednesday, in which Miss Pearl Bryant and Mrs. Glaster's sister, Miss Jennie Conley, figured so conspicu-. ously, were thoroughly aired in the po lice court yesterday and all parties con cerned suffered more or less. The Bry ant woman and Pat Glastor were first arraigned on a charge of fornication and upon the testimony of Mrs. Annie Glaster and Miss Conley were convicted and fined $25, in default of which they must spend thirty days in the work house. Then Mrs. Glaster and her sis ter, who were exulting in the consciousness ot having gained their point, were again called from their seats much to their surprise, and arraigned on a charge of assault and battery preferred by Miss Bryant. Both were convicted, Mrs. Glaster being sentenced to $25 or thirty days, and Miss Conley to SlO or ten days. Mrs. Giaster has been employed as cook at the Fisher hotel, aiifl soon after her conviction, \v. A. Fisher appeared with a check for $25, and secured a release for her from the clerk of the court. This he took to the lock-up where she was confined and offered it to her, saying that she could pay him as she earned the money. She indignantly refused his offer, saying: "You only pay me 85 per week, and why shouldn't 1 go to the workhouse when I can save $5 by so doing, and not work so hard?" She went out in the Black Maria, and Mr. Fisher exchanged the release for his cheek, MORE OIL. NEEDED. Other Companies Hit Back at the Globe Oil Company. The representatives of the other oil companies in Minneapolis smile iv deep derison at the excuse offered by the Globe Oil company for withdrawing from the agreement with the grocers' association. The other dealers say that the Globe is a branch of the Standard Oil company, one of the biggest monop olies in the country. They say further that the Globecompany withdrew from the agreement for thi- sole purpose of making war with the other companies. It is alleged that the other companies have been selling too much oil to suit the local branch of the Stand ard. The Globe thereupon gave notice of withdrawal from the agreement for the purpose of slashing rates, it having already cut the wholesale rate from seven cents to six cents. The grocers were mad as soon as they heard of it, for matters were moving so smoothly under the agreement that they did not wish the existing order of things and the old plan of cut and slash re sorted to. So they notified the Globe I people, it is said, that they would boy- I cott the Globe company if prices were ctit. The threat had its effect, and the Globe promised to maintain the exist ing schedule of prices for ninety days. Then, to bolster up its position, the claim is made that it advanced the argu ment that the agreement is in the nat ure of n trust. But tho other oil com panies deny that any of the elements of a trust enter into the agreement. It is simply an agreement to prevent ruinous cutting of prices, not an agreement to raise prices. It is maintained that the grocers will still boycott the Globe if that company undertakes to do any rate cutting on oil. DIVORCES FOR FOUR. That Is What Was Asked of the District Court Yesterday. Four divorce complaints were tiled in the district court yesterday. Alex iv. Coutts was the only male plaintiff. He charges that his wife is now one of the queens of First street south and is guilty of infidelity with various and divers men every day. The wife, whose name is Flora, has been served with notice ot the divorce case, but she has refused to make an answer. She is probably quite well satisfied with ihp life of shame that she leads down on First street. Mr. and Mrs. Coutts were married at Grinnell. 10., in 1885, and lived together until November, 1800, when Mrs. Coutts enteied the house, of prostitution at 22(5 First street south. Ida Koehler against Rudolf Koehler, is an interesting ease. The coniDlaint recites the following story: Mr. and Mrs. Koehler were married in ilenne pin county in March, 1888, and only lived together until Sept. 23, of the same year. Then Mrs. Koehler was obliged to leave her husband on account of the cruel manner in which he treated her. Soon after the separation Koehler Bent to Germany for another woman, and has lived with her as his wife since January, 1889. About a year ago a child was born to the woman with whom Koehler is living, and, of course, he is charged with being its father. Emma Eisman wants a divorce from Joseph Eismau on the ground of deser tion. She says they were married at Okeryille, 111., in 1880, and he deserted her in ISSB. She says her husband is manager of a big clothing house and receives a salary of $1,800 a year, and she wants a portion of the sum in the shape of alimony. Mrs. Eisman is twenty-seven years of age and her hus band thirty-seven. Emma Grindall says her husband, George A. Grindall, has treated her in such a cruel manner that she ought to be divorced from him. Mrs. Giiudall says that she caught a contagious dis ease from her husband, and that he beat her while she was confined to her bed. They were married in Minneap olis, Sept. 8, ISBI. ROYAL ARCANUM MUSICALE. Officers of the Order Entertain a Whole Theaterful. Last evening the officers of the vari ous councils of the Royal Arcanum in Minneapolis threw open the doors of the Lyceum theater and invited their friends to enjoy one of the most successful musicales of the year. The theater would have been crowded from cellar to garret, if theaters had those things. As it was the house was so full that it could hold no more. The stage was set for a gar den scene and occupied by the 144 of ficers of the order in Minneapolis. The body of the house was crowded by the members of the order and their friends. The balcony was draped with bunting and the boxes plentifully decorated. Prominent among the decorations ap peared the banners of the order. The musicale was given under the di rection of the Northwestern Lyceum bureau, and the programme was pre sented by the best known artists in the city. The following took part: Claude Madden, violinist; George W. Fergus son, baritone; Miss Clara Williams, soprano; Miss Marie Louise Guinaer, contralto; Miss Mabello Biggart, dramatic reader; Miss Florence .E. Burtis, accompanist, and the Cecilian, quartette, composed of Ray Finel, first tenor; H. A. Stuart, second tenor; E^P. Love, first bass; W. 11. Eichmau, sec ond bass. Every number of the long programme— so lout that encores were, not allowed— was a treat. During the intermission Rev. J. F. Stout made a short address, giving a brief history of. the order aud outlining its objects. The Flour Output. * There was very little change In the flour output last week. The week's production was 171,620 barrels—averag ing 28.G03 barrels daily— against 173,720 barrels the previous week, 112,000 bar rels for the corresponding time in 1891, and 117.740 barrels iv 1890, says the Northwestern Miller. One more "mill is running this week, making seventeen in all, which are grinding at the rate of about 29.000 barrels per twenty-four hours. The water power is quite good for this season. The flour market has been pretty quiet since wheat broke. "The Village Blacksmith" Tried. Clifford Henry, "the village black smith" o"f Mend ota. had a hearing be fore Commissioner Udell yesterday on the charge of buying Uncle Sam's clothes from a soldier. Henry purchased an overcoat from a soldier named Fitz gerald. Such purchase was against the peace and dignity of the United States, and Henry was arrested. The prosecu tion resulted in nothing but a little fun. E. J. McMahon, Commissioner Udell's partner, appeared for the defendant, and the only objection he made was overruled. Henry was released. The government failed to prove that Henry knew be was buying the property of the United States government. The Coffee Cart. The coffee cart, which it is intended shall visit all large fires and dispense coffee aud sandwiches to the firemen to prevent them if possible from resorting to intoxicants, arrived yesterday, and has been turned over to Mrs. Russell. Mrs. Russell originated the plan of the cart. It is fitted up inside with every convenience for the purpose for which it is intended, and painted to corre spoud with the fire apparatus. Not Sufficient Proof. The case of Mrs. Butterfield, charged by Ida Collins, an occupant of the Do mestic block on Seventh street, with having slandered her to her landlady, was heard in the municipal court yes terday. Mrs. Sarah Yates testified that Mrs. Butterfield had made statements to her seriously reflecting upon the character of Miss Collins,but after hear ing the case, the court dismissed the case on the ground that the charge not proven. J. P. BUTTON RESIGNS. Gannon's Recent Address Dis pleased the Secretary. Lincoln, Neb. 26.— John P. Sutton has tendered hfs resignation as secretary of the Irish National League of Amer ica to President Gannon. Under the existing constitution the secretary holds office by appointment of the president, and in view of the divergent opinions of Mr. Gannon and Mr. Sutton in regard to the recent address, the latter consid ered it his duty to resign. Mr. Mutton says In regard to the position taken by President Gannon. "I regret very much that any differ ence of opinion should come "between us. because I have a very high opinion of Mr. Gannon personally. He admits having received" a letter from Treasurer Lyman, and says he has hastily glanced over it. The letter was not sent to him to be hastily glanced over, lie should have read it carefully. He confesses that lie wrote the address hurricdlv. No address over the signature of the presi dent of the Irish National League of America should be written hurriedly. President Gannon is not infallible, aiid in this matter he has certainly made a mistake." TIED UP AND BURNED. Fearful Crime Perpetrated in an Austrian Town for Revenge. Masked Men Bind a Young Woman and Saturate Her With Oil, Then Set Fire to the Helpless Creature and Cremate Her Alive. Missouri Avengers Still on a Hunt for the Sedalia Fiend. Vienna. Feb. 26.— The details of a "most horrible story were received in this city today, telling of a fiendish act committed, it is alleged, to avenge an other terrible crime. A band of masked men, whoso features were com pletely concealed, collected dur ing the night in the small village of Mmm, in the province of JJtikowiiin. They went to the house of a handsome young woman named Mary Leppers, forced their way into thf bedroom occuDied by the woman and bound her securely with cords. They poured a large quantity of petro leum over her. thoroughly saturating her clothes with the fluid. A match was then applied to the oil-soaked gar ments, and in an instant the unfortun ate woman was enveloped in flames. The poor victim's shrieks and cries were blood-curdling, but the terrible agony suffered by the woman as she was roasted to death had little effect in arousing pity from her assailants, who watched the woman's cre mation. The band stood gazing on this horrible spectacle un til the woman's convulsive struggles had ceased and her anguished moans had died away, and not one of them stirred from the spot until nothing re mained of tne woman's body but a black and distorted mass. The mur derers then left the place as secretly as they had arrived. The motive assigned for the outrage is that the woman was suspected of having murdered her hus band, and It is thought that those who took part In the burning were friends of the dead niau. MISSOURI MAX HUX*T. Heavy Rewards Offered for the Sedalia Outlaw. Sedalia. Mo., Feb. 20.— The excite ment over the Taylor robbery and as sault case is still unabated in this city. Business is almost suspended, and peo ple are discussing the situation. Infor mation received from Ilughesville, a village a few miles west of here, last night says Sheriff Smith arrested three negroes in that town and arrived with them this rooming. Hundreds of peo ple followed them from the train. Only one of them answered the description given by Taylor. There are 100 deputy sheriffs search ing the couutry within twenty miles of Sedalia. A telegram was received this morning by the sheriff from Charles Minter, who has charge of a posse near Tipton, saying he had a man surrounded in the woods six miles east of that town who fully answers the description given, and asking for blood hounds to assist in finding him. Dogs were at once sent. It is said the man beat his way here from Sedalia, and those in Dursuit feel confident thejr have the right man sur rounded. Gov. Francis ha 9 offered a reward of WOO for the apprehension and convic tion of the perpetrator of the horrible outrage. This is the maximum reward that the governor can offer. This, with the 81,500 offered by the citizens of Se dalia, makes a total of $1,800 offered for the capture of the diabolical wretch. ASSASSINS FOILED. The Mayor of Savannah Fails to Take a Bait. Savannah, Ga., Feb. 20.— What is believed by the police to have been a conspiracy to assassinate Mayor B. B. McDonough came to light today. Late Wednesday night two negroes called at the mayor's residence and endeavored to allure him out uf doors by claiming to be the bearers of a message from po lice headquarters. The mayor has tele phone communication between his resi dence and the headquarters and refused to respond to the message,as the officers wouid have summoned him by wire if his presence had been required. Inquiry next morning developed the fact that no message had been sent by the police. Later in the day a negro told the mayor that two white men had offered him $50 to call the mayor out of his house and then get him out of the way. The negro was frightened and fled, followed, he said, by the straneers, who threatened to kill him. Mayor Mc- Donough has recently begun a rigid en forcement of the Sunday closing law and has incurred the enmity of the grog shop keepers in the low "quarters ot' the city and to these men the friends of the mayor attribute what they be lieve to have been an attempt to murder him. A' ROUGH L.ESSOX. Tramps Given Cutting Chastise ment in Illinois.
