Republican Aldermen Fail to
Have the Liquor Ordi
nance Quashed.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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,

Mr. Gannon and Mr. Sutton in regard

says In regard to the position taken by
President Gannon.
"I regret very much that any differ

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

Missouri Avengers Still on a
Hunt for the Sedalia
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.
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
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.
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

New Yokk, Feb. 26.— Cleveland
arrived in the city at 7 o'clock yesterday
morniug in a private car attached to
the Chicago express. The ex-president
attracted much attention as he walked

of a hundred curious eyes. He looked
rather travel-worn, but he answered a
reporter's greeting in a cheerful tone.
"I don't know of anything of interest
that 1 can say for publication," he said.
"I'm tired out. and am going right to
Lakewood to rest." When asked about
the proposed presentation of his name
by Frank llurd in the Chicago conven
tion Mr. Cleveland said that he was not
prepared to discuss the subject. «
