THEY PINCHED HIM. For the past tew weeks a short. knock-kneed colored man Ins spent much of his time admiring a pair of very showy trousers hanging in the window of" a Third street tailor shop. He seemed to be completely charmed by the pattern— wide alternatiift stripes ot brown and purple. Some times the tailor eyed him indiffer ently as he cast ravishing glances upon his handiwork, but lie made no bid tor tlie black man's custom because the nants were many sizes too large. Last' Saturday the pants were entirely hidden from view behind dense crystals ot frost hieh covered the win dow, and so the negro limped into the ' After f umblinsrliiu his pockets and * f umbltii.tti.in his pockets and muling good-naturedly upon the pro- IDem is hot stuff, shoo!"

NOTE AND COMMENT. The law courts are good for some thing besides furnishing employment .'or lawyers. Just now there is every prospect that they will find in answer lo a question which has long baffled inquiry: What is "Wheat aud Chaff" rood for? it seems to be a compulsory advertising medium. Yesterday a lower Nicollet restaurateur was served with notice of action at law to recover £14. The plaintiff is a collection agency, ncting as agent for the com pany which allows "Wheat and Chaff" in its paper. According to the defendant's story, it came about this way: The "Wheat and Chaff" editor ordered a lobster. It waa served lt tasted so good that the editor felt calied upon to mention it in Wheat and Chaff by way of compliment to- his friend the restaurateur. The business manager saw an "ad" iv said mention. j He sent a bill to the restaurateur. Pay- j ment was refused. Hence the - tit. The members of the so-called Paresis club expect to reap their revenge when this case brings ; id editor into court. A peculiar state of affairs exists orotind the headquarters of the city government. On one hand Mayor Eustis is doing everything in his power to economize aud save money for the taxpayers, md on the other hand everybody else is endeavoring to secure a raise of" salary. If the list submitted to the committee on salaries by Chief Kuntre, of the lire department, should go through, it would cost the city 512,000 more than at the present time. A benevolent lady has preferred charges ot the most terrible nature against one of lhe assistaut city physi cians. Among other things, she charges that he has dirty hands. Now, if the lady hatt only looked up cer tain public transactions of last year she might have brought the latter charge against one or two aldermen and perhaps substantiated everything claimed, but in the city's medical de partment, where tliey have plenty of soap and handle but little money, - ie will have me little trouble to back up her statements. The last bridge across the Fourth av enue north viaduct will soon be under way. and according to City Engineer Cappelen it will be the bridge of size. It is said that members of the Church of the Redeemer will petition the legis lature to pass a law prohibiting the ap plication of the term of "Hell's Half- Acre"' to the property on Third aveuue soutli between Eighth and Mnth streets. The reason is plain. The Church of the Bedeemer occupies ground included in that half-acre. The Unnecessary Problem. George Yashon. the colored Demos thenes of Minneapolis, delivered a learned address last evening at Ear moiiia hall, his theme being "The Eu necessary Problem." which was an other name for the Southern or race question. M.W.Meagherptesided.andin a few well chosen words, paid a grace ful tribute to the speakers knowledge of the question aud his ability as an orator. Mr. Yashon scored the carpet baggers during reconstruction days, and with scathing rhetoric con demned the philanthropists who rushed to the -cue of the colored men after the termination of the war, and foisted themselves into power to rape and to plunder. His solu tion of the question was to leave it to the South. In fact, he expressed his belief that there is no Southern ques tion at all, only as it may be made such. Xo Election Yet. The councii committee on water works met yesterday afternoon. It was supposed that rhe officers of tlie water department would be elected, but.the members of the committee lied to ngree. and. after remaining in session for several hours, adjourned thout having accomplished anything. The trouble comes over the selection or a supervisor and registrar. Registrar Moody is acceptable to the Republicans, as is Supervisor McConneli. but the Democratic members of the committee, it is understood, are after the scalps of both of these gentlemen. Those who are acquainted with Moody and McCon neli. and with the workings of the water department, are hoping both will be retained. Bowker Fired From Calvary. .]. 11. Bowker, known as Lev. J. H.

They Want No Compromise of the Anti-Trust Law In junction Case. Still a Deadlock of the Cor rections and Charities Board on Physician. W. H. P. Windrus Arrested in New York— Wilkinson on Brooks. The most interesting session of the Northwestern Lumbermen's associa tion was held yesterday afternoon. It included a discussion of the suit brought against the association by the Bohn Manufacturing Company of St. Paul, and an expression from the members of the association as to what course the as sociation should pursue. As soon as President Price rapped the association to order, he said: "You all know how the Bohn Man ufacturing company precipitated a suit against this association. The members of the hoard of directors have been act ing as the servants of the association in tbis case. What has been done has been done because we thought it best. What we want to know now from the mem bers is if the course of the directors has been satisfactory. A few words of ex planation nay be iv brder here. ••Last night the board of directors heard that the Bohn company wanted to com promise tiiis case. The directors met this morning, expecting Mr. Bohn to apuear before them. He did not come. "but we heard that Mr. Bohn and his attorney were in the city. A com mittee of two directors was appointed to meet Mr. Bohn and his attorney and hear what they had to say. Mr. Bohn toid this committee that he did not want to make any proposition, but would like to have the association prepare a com promise. While the committee did not feel authorized to make any proposi tion, it did propose this settlement: "That the Bohn company pay ail court costs of the suit up to date, pay claims levied by the association against the Bohn company before the suit was brought, and withdraw suit. '■Bonn and his attorney Declined to Accept this Droposition. The committee re ported to the board of directors and the board decided to make no further prop osition of settlement, but to go on with the case in the courts. •'We want to know if our course thus far has been satisfactory to you and if you desire that this case be carried through the courts. We want to hear from you now. We are firm in the faith that we will win the case. But it" we should lose we don't want any of you to bay -1 told you so.' Let us hear irom all" of you.'' G. W. Berry, of .Nebraska, imme diately moved that the action of the board'be indorsed. That brought de bate. D. R. Ewing. one of the committee of two whicii had met Boiin and his attor ney, related what bad occurred at that conference practically as President Price had related it Bohn wouid not accept the committee's proposition be cause it would be a lay-down for Bohn. lie wanted the committee to pay all the court costs, ami wanted his attorney given the privilege of making such no tations as he might choose in the court records. He told Bohn the committee would not compromise except on grounds honorable to the committee, Among the others who relieved their minds were li. L. Arnold, of Minneapo lis: A. K. tersou. of Aupleton; Charles Lueke. D. E. Baker, of Iowa; Wood, of Milbank, b. l->. Secretary Hoilis made a few pointed remarks. "1 would be as well pleased as any one to see a compromise," said he, "but this- question of loyalty must be estau lisnetl some time. We want to know whether we have a right to set together and decide whether we shall trade with certain people or not. The eyes of all associations are looking toward us on account of this case." Holiis"was applauded. "No Compromise." "Stand by the directors." and like ex pressions were frequently heard in the debate. Charles Locke struck a popular chord when he said: "Go on with the suit and carry it to the highest court, if the annual dues be not enough to meet the expenses double the dues, or treble them if nec essary." A rising vote was taken on the motion to indorse the course of the directors. Every man in the hall rose and the di rectors were indorsed. This means that the Xorthwestern Lumbermen's association will carry this anti-trust law injunction case through the supreme court. Wood, or Milbank. thought the asso ciation was running too much to theater and railroad trips. He wanted a pro gramme committee appointed to pre pare a long programme of papers, etc., for the annual meeting. The association decided that it is doing quite well un der the present system. The board of directors was authorized to apnoint three delegates to the united association convention in Cleveland next October, with the reservation that Secretary Mollis must go as chairman of the delegation and that the other two must come from the ranks. The officers were elected at the morn ing session. President L. H. Price, of Sioux City, was elected by a unanimous rising vote. The election of H. W.Ross, of Sioux Falls, as vice president, was aiso unanimous. E. P. Spofford was chosen to succeed himself is director. 1.. J. Moss, of West Superior, invited the association to meet at the head of the lake next year. No action was taken. The committee on by-laws re oorted no changes. The by-laws are satisfactory as they are. The auditing committee reported the treasurer's ac counts correct. A few speeches ou the good work the association is doing were made. lii the Afternoon, just before adjournment, Leonard Bron son. of the Timberman. of Chicago, said a few words in behalf of the news oaper men. While the association was thanked, as a whole, for the courteous treatment of the newspaper men. it was especially congratulated on the posses sion of a" secretary like W. G. Hoilis. Mr. Hoilis hasshown an appreciation of the difficulties under which the reporters usually labor at conventions of business men. He aiways provides them with every facility for doing their work and relieve? them of most of the tedious grind of their work by his foresight. In response Secretary Hoilis spoke warmly or the newspaper men. saying that he always gives them confidence aud has never had that confidence violated. The association adjourned until Sat urday evening. Until then the mem bers will be seeking pleasure. Lust night they attended the Grand opera house, by invitation of the Minneapolis manufacturers and dealers, occupying the entire lower floor. A. specially pre pared bill of the play, emblematic of the association of the Uoo-Hoos, was ready for them. They were made the victims of one or two sly hits from the stage. This morning the members of the as sociation will go to the Chicago Great Western depot, Washington ave nue and Tenth avenue south, and at 7:30 start for Chicago. The first stop will be at Dubuque, where they will be banqueted by the local lumbermen. They will arrive in Chicago at 11:30 this eveuing, and make their'headquar THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: WEDNESDAY" MORNING, JANUARY 25, 1893. ters at the Great Northern hotel.

The meeting of the board of correc tions and charities held yesterday after noon failed to break the deadlock iv the matter of the electiou of city physician. Mayor Eustis and Dr. Woodward de clined to vote as at the previous meet ing, while Commissioner Martin stood by his Chase guns, and President Cloutier and Commissioner Hove con tinued in their allegiance to Dr. Byrnes. A dozen ballots were taken with the same result— Dr. Byrnes 2 and Dr. Chase 1. It was decided to postpone further balloting until the next meet ing, there being no hope of effecting a compromise. Mayor Eustis presented to the board a letter received by him from Mrs. George Buckland, of 714 Eighth street south, in which she ac cused the assistaut city physician of neglect, inhuman treatment and a num ber of other absurd things, among them the offense of having '-unclean hands." She said that on Jan. 11 a Dane and his sick wife arrived in the city from Win nipeg. They moved into a little house on Third avenue south, between Eighth aud Ninth streets, inthe locality known as Hell's Half Acre. The wife was about to become a mother, and having no money to pay for medical attendance Dr. Weston was called. Instead of car ing for the woman as he should have done. Mrs. Buckland said that the doc tor left her lying on the door, in a cold room, without a bit of medicine, and that he never returned. She said the doctor told her he could not attend to the case lor his hands were not clean, and he had no facilities for washing them. Mrs. Buckland, with "biting sarcasm," ended up her letter with the statement that the Mississippi river was near by, and if the doctor had such filthy .hands he should go there and make them clean again. ' The absurdity of the charges made by Mrs. Bucklaud were made apparent wnen Dr. Weston appeared before the board and explained the case. He was called to attend the patient, but found upon reaching the house that another physician had been called, and would be there in time to take care of the woman. Out of professional courtesy he did not touch the case, for he did not care to begin .a case that another physician was to finish. It appears that the physician called did not come at all, though Dr. Weston was not ad vised of it until Mrs. Buckland came to him at his office, lie tnen told her the reason he did not attend the case, and added that he did not know when he started out what the case was aud so had not prepared himself, It was necessary in all cases of child birth for the attending physi cian to prepare his hands with a surgi cal wash and he could nor? endanger the lite of the patient by performing the obstetrical operation before having "surgically cleansed" his hands. Mrs. Buckland having no knowledge of med icine or surgery, jumped to the conclu sion that the doctor had made an ad mission that his lands were dirty. Now, as a matter of fact, Dr. Weston is somewhat resthetical in the manner in which lie "fixes" himself up and the board had a hearty laugh wheu he ex plained the "cleiising" of hands as meant by surgeons. Tue case of the woman lirst referred to. the doctor ex plained, had happily turned out all right. The committee to whom was referred the annual report and recommendations of Dr. Cnase reported back that it would be a wise move to ask the legislature for an additional appropriation of $50,000 for buiiding a new hospital and purchas ing a site. It was agreed to hold the matter in abeyance, however, until after the board had" consulted with the coun cil committee on judiciary, the consulta tion to take place next Friday afternoon. Sunt. Gross, of the workhouse, submit ted a report in which he embodied a number of valuable suggestions- and recommendations, which will no doubt be acted upon by the board, lie stated in his report that the present workhouse accommodations were entirely inade quate for the number of prisoners. There were cell room for "out 150 males; yet the institution had been called upon on several occasions of late to house lsj male prisoners and 9 females at one time. The plan of allowing the inmates to be crowded together, even for a short time, was a pernicious one, and should be remedied. The discipline of the workhouse, the superintendent said, had been very good and very little punishment had been resorted to. The bread and water diet and imprisonment in dark cells had the effect of bringing the recalcitrants to time very effectively. It was neces sary to furnish some kind of employ ment for the prisoners, other than dig ging stone in the quarries, for many of them were unable to do hard manual labor, but fully able to perform some kind of indoor work. A small lire hose was needed, for in case of hre the insti tution was practically without protec tion. Better drainage was also needed, and needed badly. tor the present sewer age system was defective and might lead to serious results in case or cholera or other contagious diseases. IX THE TOMBS. Windrus. the Embezzling Book keeper, Caught in Xew York. W. 11. P. Windrus, the bookkeeper for the local branch of the Minnesota Packing and Provision company, who absconded Jan. 13. after embezzling £3,500, has been captured in Xew York. A telegram from W. W. McLaughlin, chief of the Xew York detective bu reau, to Superintendent Smith yester day, announced that Windrus had been captured and remanded to the tombs, to await the arrival of requisition pa pers. The telegram stated that an of cer from Minneapolis was there, but he could not be recognized unless the proper authority was received from Superintendent Smith. The person in Xew York desiring to secure the custody of Windrus is one of Rice's detectives, stnt there by the man ager of the packing company. As he is not a regular attache of - the" police de : partment, the superintendent cannot ; recognize him, nor will the city or coun : ty stand tiny of the expense ot bringing him back. 'Supt. Smith telegraphed to Xew York that if Windrus would re turn without requisition papers Lice's man might take nim; if not, he would have to remain, unless the packing com pany would stand the expense. \Yindrus lived at Ills Eighth street south, lie has a wife and three chil dren. His trjttbie. it is said, was caused by his passion for the gaming table. NO ECONOMY HEKE. Committee on Salaries Tackles the Applications for More Pay. The new council committee on sala ries met yesterday afternoon and went over a formidable looking list of appli cations for increase of salaries. The city engineer surprised the committee by submitting a list of. $3,300 less than of last year, but the fire department was represented by requests for raise in sal aries of nearly everybody connected with it. Foremost among the applicants was Chief Kuuee, who modestly asked that he be given $500 more than at pres ent, increasing his pay from ?3,000 to $3,500 a year. Following is the list from the fire department: Chief, 13,500; first and second assist ants, each $2,000; third assistant, $1,500; marshall, $1,200; superintendent fire alarm, $2,000; assistant superintendent, $1,200; master mechanic. $1,500; super intendent of horses, $1,500; captains, first grade, $1,200; second grade, $1,080; lieutenants, first grade, $1,020; second grade, $960; engineers, first grade,sl,2oo: second grade. $1,080; assistant engineers of steamers, $000; three and four horse drivers, $360; pipemen, truckmen, driv ers and tillermen. first grade, §900; pipe men, truckmen, drivers and tillermen, second grade, $840; pipemen, truckmen, drivers and tillermen. third grade, 1650; secretary, $1,200; assistant secretary. $840; linemen, $980. The committee remained in session for several hours behind locked doors. They refused to give out anything for publication when they finished their business, claiming that tney would be besieged with new applications and protests if the result was known. It is understood that the salary of Chief Range was increased, while the wages of a number of those lower in rank were reduced. However this may be, it will all come out at the next meeting of the council. ARRAIGNMENT DAY. Work of the Grand Jury Seen in the Court. Yesterday was arraignment day in the criminal court and the work of the grand jury was brought to light in the number of arraignments made. Harry Truedess, charged with horse stealing and who pleaded guilty Mon day, was, in view of it being his second offense, sentenced to five years in Still water. Elmer Foster, the ex-center fielder, nonchalantly pleaded not guilty of as sault and battery, and his bail was tixed at #400. It was immediately secured, and Elmer walked out as though it I was an everyday occurrence. Rollis Beaver and Ben Taylor pleaded ! guilty to a charge of grand larceny in the second degree and were sentenced to the state reformatory, a second in dictment against Taylor being dis missed. Thomas Murphy, charged with rob bery, pleaded not guilty and his bail was fixed at 5300. Charles Davis and Charles Grant each pleaded not guilty to robbery and hail was tixed at $300.

Corser'a Affairs Begin Their March in Court. The first steps under the law, which will lead up to the direct assignment of E. S. Corser & Co., were takeu in the district court yesterday when tbe Na tional Bank of Commerce began suit by garnishment against E. S. Corser and L. B. Elwood. as the tirm of E. S. Corser & Co., with the Minneapolis Electric Light and Power company as garnishee, the only papers filed being the affidavit in garnishment. Under the law of this state an assign ment can not be made, nor can a man be declared insolvent unless there is some suit or suits pending against him hi tne courts, and it was, therefore, necessary for some one of the eredttors to beirin a suit in order that an assignment might be made. Elbridge Cooke, of the law firm of Flanneoy & Cook, is the attorney for the bank. also tlie selected Corser assignee. It is probable that the formal assignment will be made today or tomorrow, and the statement of as sets and liabilities will probably be filed the last of this week or the first of next, the time allowed by law being ten days.

At the annual meeting of the farmers' institute of Newcastle county, Dela ware, held a few days ago. the subject discussed was the prevalence of tuber culosis in dairy herds, and among those who look part in the discussion were the officers of the state board of health, Prof. Pearson, of the University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Shakespeare, who was commissioned by the govern ment to inquire and report concerning recent epidemics of cholera in Europe. The testimony given by these gentle men and by certain veterinarians who were present shows that the attention of health authorities and sanitarians in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania has been drawn to the subject under consideration by the deploraoie aud dangerous condition of many herds in those states, and also that the need of new legislation for the protection of consumers of milk in the cities of those states is clearly seen. "We shall endeavor to show you." said the president of the institute at the lining of the session, "that tuberculosis is lurking in many of out domestic herds." While there does not appear to hive been any thorough in quiry designed to reveal the number of infected herds in the state.the reports of veterinarians and physicians as to what they had seen in the course of their practice clearly indicated the wide pre valence of the disease. One of the veterinarians spoke of the treatment of- 230 diseased cows. It is almost impossible in the early stages of tuber culosis to detect the presence of the dis ease in a cow without the use of Koch's tuberculin. A veterinarian residing at West Grove, Pa., reported that he had recently condemned six cows in a herd of nineteen, and that 5 per centof the cows in the herds which he had ex amined in the last month were tuber- cuious. Another veterinarian, prac ticing in Maryland, said that in the "herds he had inspected 3 per cent of the animals were in fected, and lie had found calves that had taken the«disease from cows in the same nerd. During the session two infected cows were killed for the en- •ightenmeiit of the assembled farmers. One of these animals was in the early stages of the disease, and in the other the malady had almost run its course. Thle condition of the carcasses, as re vealed by dissection, was described and explained by Prof. Pearson, who also sec forth the latest discoveries of bac teriological science concerning the transmission of . the disease from cows to human beings through the agency of milk or meat. Prof. Peorson recently inspected a herd of seventy-five cows and found that thirty-five of them were tubercu lous. The disease was found last sum mer even in the herd of the Pennsyl vania Agricultural college. Dr. Shake speare spoke at length about the man : ncr in whicii the disease may be com municated to human beings, and described the experimental transmis sion of it to pigs and other ani mals by means of the milk of dis eased cows. He asserted that it was probable that laws for the suppression of the disease would soon be enacted iv Pennsylvania, and urged that similar laws should be passed In Deleware. A representative of the Maryland board of health showed that a general law in Maryland authorized the stute veteri narian to kill cows affected with a con tagious disease, but it appeared that ad ditional legislation is needed in that state. We hare heretofore shown the course of legislation on this subject In Maine. New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Islaud, and have referred to the published admissions as to the great prevalence of the disease in the dairy herds from which the milk supply of Philadelphia is taken. It is well known that a law designed to prevent the sale of milk from tuberculous herds in this state was passed nearly a year ago. and that the reports of veterinarians indi cate the existence of many infected herds in the region from whicii milk is brought to this city. A few weeks ago what was supposed to be a choice herd of cows on a dairy tarm in Westchester county was by ac cident founa to be very badly diseased, and the animals were killed. The milk had been sold at a very bigh price to wealthy residents cf thiscity, but it was so thoroughly Infected that guinea pigs to which it was given died of tuberculo sis, lt has been said that the state offi cers who are empowered and directed to euforce this new law are restrained by the inadequacy of the sum appro priated, lt this be the cause of their failure to take action, they should ap peal at once to the legislature for the money that is needed. There can he no good excuse for further delay: LEAD AND RUBBER SCARCE. A. New Material Has Been Made. Superior to the Original Ar ticle. Comment has been made thousands of times on the fact that there is no lead in a lead pencil, and, if possible, less in the useful household preparation known as black lead, In a few years it may be possible to add that there is no rubber in India rubber, says a writer in the St. Louis Giobe-Democrat. The imperative necessity of finding some substitute to make up for the in evitable scarcity, if not failure, of the original article has long been recog nized, and it really seems as though the difficulty had beeu solved at last. The imitation consists of manita gum. resin oil, and one or two other ingredients, bearing as little resemblance to rubber, but forming in combination a substance equal to the best rubber, and much su perior to the original article. The substitute is very elastic and pliable, and cau be produced at less cost than the average quality of pure rub ber. As, moreover, it wili require less adulteration with lead, zinc or similar material, it will be safer and better to use in many ways.

One Tras Medicine for Lost Nervous Strength, Cur6s Effected by Paine's Cel ery Compound. What Scientific Research Accomplished. Proved by Success Where All Else Has Failed. There is one true specific for diseases : arising from a debilitated nervous sys tem, and that is the Paine's celery com pound so generally prescribed by phy sicians. It is probably the most remark - j able remedy that the scientific research I of this country has produced. Prof. -. Edward E. Phelps, ifflr WM xy SUtiiHSk/WMt i M. D.. LL. D.. of Dartmouth college, first prescribed what is now known the world over as Paine's celery com pound, a positive cure for dyspepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, neural gia, rheumatism and kidney trou bles. For the latter Paine's celery com- pound has succeeded again and again where everything else has failed. Washington correspondents have re cently given it a great deal of attention since the most wonderful cure effected in the case of Commodore Howell. The medical journals of the country have given more space in the last few years to the many remarkable cases where the use of Paine's celery com pound has made people well than to any other one subject. nil CC —Dr. H.
