Tlie J. J. Hill celebration is assuming
larger proportions than was originally
contemplated and the interest is grow
ing: daily.
Inquiries are pouring In upon Secre

Bignified its intention of doing some
thing, and Seattle has advised that it
will have a unique float in the industrial
parade, to be drawn with twelve teams.
The parade committee held a meeting
at the office of the jobbers' union at 11
a. in. yesterday and heard the reports of
the various subcommittees. Tin- work
is i>roirrcs<iug satisfactorily, and 150
floats are already in sight.
The committee report, however, that
some of the linns who will have floats
in the parade have not yet commenced
their construction. The time is short

Gov. Burke Adds His Quota to
the Current of Senti
Reciprocity between the United States
and Canada seems to have become a
fact. The sentiment that has grown up
I in the States and the Provinces is of the
most pronounced type. The populace
J of both countries have risen up in their
might to sit down upon McKinleyism.
i Yesterday afternoon a mostenthusiastic
! meeting was held— a meeting of the
I joint committees of the various com
i mercial bodies of St. Paul relative to
I tiie forthcoming reciprocity convention
! that is to be held in this city. There
were in attendance:
President E. V. Smalley, Gov. Burke,

"What do you think is a fair estimate
of the number of people who will be
present at the convention?" asked E.
V. Smalley.
"1 think from 500 to 700." replied Mr.
McGinnis. Pursuing, Mr. McGinnis
said: "1 think that the question of the
matter of accommodations lias been
left with Messrs. Kelly and Bray." The
committee thought it would be a good
I idea to secure the Auditorium for night
j work, and probably the People's church
for day meetings.
Mr. Smalley— Gentlemen, Gov. Burke,
of North Dakota, is with us today. He
very kindly came down to attend our
last meeting, and I think you will be
clad to hear him." t
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen," re
sponded Gov. Burke. "1 am sure I can
not add anything to what 1 have already
said, but I want to tell you that I am
glad to be with you and will do all 1 can
to Help this convention. Unfortunately
j tor my town, I think 1 was the only rep
resentative from that town at the last
convention. 1 want you to feel that if
there is anything i can do 1 shall be
giad to do it. i have remained over

i Mr. McGinnis' remarks are right in line.

sults, good results from this convention,
and as 1 have already said 1 am ready
I to do all 1 can to make this convention
] a grand success, 1 thank you Mr. Chair

The question of transportation was
then talked over, and it was stated that
the railroads would probably make the
same rates as they will make to the
Lflyal Legion and Hill celebration peo
j pie coming from the different points.

"Mr. McGinnis, have you any further
report to make to the committee than
that made by you last Saturday?'' asked
Mr. Smalley, presiding.
"Well, nothing further than that the

Which Cost an Innocent Farmer
John Lundin, a farmer from Chisago
county, was yesterday robbed of 5205 by
three bunco men. He went into a Sev
enth street saloon to take a drink
with the capper. While this in
teresting ceremony was going on
iiunco Man No. 2 came and began to
shake dice with No. 1. The latter was
soon short of money and asked for a
loan from the guileless farmer, who
pulled out a wad of the above amount
from his capacious pocdet. No. 2
snatched the money out of his hand and
disappeared. At this juncture No. 3
put in his appearance, in the form of a
detective, and arrested the farmer and
No. 1 for gambling. The tiller of the
soil told how he had been robbed,
and the detective at once set about to
help him recover his money. He said
the thief had, without doubt, trone to
Minneapolis, and together they went to
that city. The bogus detective told the
farmerto stop at a Sixth street hotel
while he went out to reconnoiter. The
victim waited for two or three long
hours, but the detective never came
back. Lundin then became suspicious
and reported his loss to the police. At
last accounts lie had not recovered the

His Kick Results in Cheapening
the Sprinkling Con
And the Eccentric Assemblyman
Occupies a Hefonn Ped
The board of public works yesterday
opened bids for street sprinkling in six
or the districts in the city. The bids
are the result of an investigation started
by Assemblyman Reardon, who insist
ed that the contracts awarded some
weeks ago by the board of public works
to Nick Feyen were too high, and were
the result of a "coal combine" among
the sprinkling contractors. The figures
at which the contracts were awarded
yesterday would seem to clinch Mr.
Keardon's arguments. There were five
competitors for the contracts, in the
persons of Georire Gerlich, Patrick Nor
ris, W. J. Preston, Nick Feyen and
Thomas Keilly. Gerlich was awarded
the Second and Fifth districts at
2V4 and 23 cents per 100 feet per week.
Patrick Norris secured the Third,
Fourth and Sixth districts at 3.V.f. 20
and 24 cents per 100 feet per week,
while Thomas Keilly was given the
Ninth district at 28 cents. All of the
bids of thesuccessfull contractors were
lower than the ones on which Feyen
was awarded the previous contracts.
Gerlich's bid for doing the work in the
Second district is 4 cents below the
former bid of Feyen. In the Fifth dis
trict Gerlich is also 2 cents under
Feyen's bid in the previous contest.
Norris, who gets the Third. Fourth and
Sixth districts, asrrees to do the work
for 1, 1% and \)i cents lower than
Feyen was awarded the contract for last
time. Keilly's bid for the Ninth district
is % cent lower than the figure on
which Feyen was given the contract.
The city engineer said yesterday after
the contracts had been awarded that the
prices were much lower than the pre
vious bids and the saving would be in
the neighborhood of $3,000. Friends of
Assemblyman Keardon claim the sav
ing to the taxpayers will amount to
nearly .SIO,OOO, and some of the more en
thusiastic are certain that his bold stand
in the matter will make him an avail
able candidate for mayoi. It is also
claimed by Mr. Iteardon's constituents
that if the city is really in need of a re
form mayor he is just the man for the

Dulies of an Employer Denned
In Their Relation to Dan

The case of Erickson vs. The Bohn
Manufacturing Company, of this city,
decided yesterday by Judge Walter 11.
Sanborn, of thb United States circuit
court of appeals, in favor of the defend
ant company, is of great interest and
importance to the manufacturers of this
The plaintiff, a boy fifteen years old,
while operating one of the machines in
defendant's factory, lost three fingers.
He sued the company for §10,000 dam
ages, and upon the trial the jury gave
him So.OOO. The liohn company ap
pealed, and Judge Sanborn set aside
the verdict. He holds that when a
manufacturer employs a workman it is
his duty to notify him of all secret or
latent dangers connected with his work;
that the line between dangers which
arc apparent and those which are hid
den must necessarily vary with UwTage
and experience of the workman. The
employer owes greater care to a youth
than to a full-grown man. But no duty
rests on an employer to notify even a
boy of dangers so open and apparent
that one of his age and experience is
presumed to know and appreciate them,
or. which he actually knows and appre
ciates. When the boy goes to work he
takes the risk of all such dangers.
In this case the boy admitted that he
knew he stood in danger of being cut
by the machine, and that he was very
careful to avoid all dancer, but lie
claimed that the operation of the ma
chine on which he was nurt created a
powerful and secret suction; that the
defendant failed to explain this to him,
and that he did not know of its exist
ence when he was hurt; that his hand
was drawn into the machine by tiie suc
tion, and he would not have been in
jured if the company had informed him
about it. Although the defendant main
tained there was no suction about the
machine, the trial court refused to sub
jnit the question to the jury. Judge
San born decided that the main question
to be passed upon was whether or not
any suction existed.

In Case the Cholera Epidemic
Should Strike Us This
An Interesting Symposium
at the Academy of Science
Hot Roasts on the City Gov
ernment for the Filthy
Some Interesting Hints, as
Well as Some Solid
Cholera, its germs, their propagation,
the methods to prevent an introduction
ot the dread scourge into this country,
and what is being done to police against
and to handle it in case it comes to this
country, was the range of learned and
scientific discussion last night in the
Commercial club parlors. The occasion
was a special meeting of the club to
entertain the St. Paul Academy of
S_cience, under the auspices of which the
discussion was had. The meeting was
called to order by Mr. Footner. presi
dent of the Commercial club, who
turned the meetiug over to the academy
of science, with E. VV. Peet as chair
man. During the early part of theeven
ing Dr. Walter Reed, of the United
States army, exhibited a collection of
phials, containing cholera bacilli in
various conditions and in several ar
ticles of food, and used several micros
copes to give the ladies and gentlemeu
present an opportunity for careful in
Mr. Peet made a short address, In
which he thanked the Commercial club
for the courtesies extended the academy
of science, and expressed a hope that it
would aid in securing the establishment
of a public library building for the city,
in which the academy may find a home,
establish a museum and promote the
sciences in the city.
Dr. Ueed was then introduced and de
livered a learned and scientific address
on cholera bacteria and the progress
made by scientists in copini? with and
uedninc the .proportion thereof. He
said that ten years ago absolutely noth
ing was known of the Asiatic cholera.
Some thought it was in the air and was
carried by its currents from one country
to another; some thought it was in the
water, and others believed it was in the
ground. Various investigations were
made to show where it originated.
Dr. Reed leviewed very interestingly
the researches made on the subject by
Kobert Koch, the great bacteriologist of
Germany, as well as by a number of
others. The lengths of time the bacilli
will live in various articles of food were
stated. It was found that it flourished in
bouillon, and if a littie jelletine was
inaxed with the buillon the bacilli will
live in it for three months. It only lives
a few days in milk, water or bread. In
vestigation has shown that there is no
danger from cholera by drinking writer
between meals, as the acid in the stom
ach kills the bacteria. Mr. Reed ad
vised the taking of acid into the stom
ach freely in case of a cholera epidemic.
Dr. \V. E. Halowell read an interest
ing paper on the sanitary precautions
desirable to be taken against cholera.
He called attention to the fact that the
scourge exists in India all the time and
makes periodical visits to this country.
"It exists in Europe to a greater extent
than we are aware," said Dr. Halowell,
and every seaport in Europe is infected.
It has been in Belgium. Holland, as
well as Russia all winter, and the prob
abilities are it will reach this city this
summer. He claimed that quarantine is
not the best way to fight cholera, but
Hie fight should be made at home, and
active preparations should be com
menced at once. He drew a vivid pict
ure of the filthy condition of the city,
and scored some hard thrusts at the
city government that he said would
not even consider any proposition of the
board of health to protect the city. He
said that the local board had made a
proposition to the city officers to maKe
provision for paying any expense that
1 might be necessarily incurred in case
the disease broke out. but sympathy
was refused, although no money
was asked for unless the disease
should break out, and it became
necessary to provide for quarantine and
treatment. In response -to a question
asked as to whether the Commercial
club should appoint a committee to act
in concert with the local health board
in taking precautions, Dr. Hallowell
stated after his lecture that he be
lieved that the committee should
act Independently, as there seemed
to be a prejudice against the
health board by some people and powers
in the city. Dr. Halovvell laid stress on
the need of cleaning up the city. and de
clared that St. Paul i.« now the dirtiest
city of which he has any knowledge.
He said there is urgent need for hospital
preparations, also to guard the water
supply by rjatrolintrthe lakes, and that
these precautions be taken at once.
Dr. Charles N. Hewitt, president of
the stnte board of health, delivered a
stirring address. He spoke of the lines
of defense already put in operation by
the marine board of health and supple
mented by the state board, lie alluded
to the inspection provided in foreign
ports, the ports of entry to this country,
and me plans for detecting not only chol
era suspects, but persons liable to be in
fected with small-pox and other dis
eases. He regarded there being much
more danger of small-pox than cholera
in this city, but believed that we are
likely to have both. lie urged the im
portance ot cleaninir up the city, tilling
! up all the holes in the streets, as well
las vaults ana shallow wells, so
that stagnant water may not col
lect, and the provision for a hos
pital tent a;ul a disinfecting plant.
He said that two years ago he had
adopted a system of having notifica
tions sent him from seaboard cities of
cases of infected persons coming to the
state, and has received since then over
B,'JOO notices. Arrangements nave been
made to have a health officer follow
exposed persons from the ports of
■ entry to their destination. When they
come to this state they are -followed
to their places of settlement and
watched until the clanger is over. The
Minnesota state board has organized
every city, town and township iti the
state, and now has over 5,000 agents
I watching persons that may come into
the state and who may be infected
with any disease. The telegraph
I line is used In urgent cases and
j the mails are also freely used.
I Dr. Hewitt stated that the board is
having notices prepared urging laymen
and commanding local health boards to
make a rigid May sanitary inspection in
every township in the state, lv these
notices it will be urged that every
manure heap and ash pile be cleared
away from near dwellings, and that
welis and vaults be disinfected. He ad
vised the academy of science and the
Commercial club to take active meas
ures In St. Paul to clean the city and
prepare for small-pox and cholera.
Acting on .the suggestion of Dr.
Ilevvett, President Footner, of the Com
mercial club, was authorized to confer
with the other commercial bodies and
the academy of science and ouier
learned bodies and select a committee of
ten gentlemen who are to look into the
matter of taking necessary sanitary pre

An Organization That Bids Fair
to Be of Great Usefulness.
About one year ago there was organ
ized in this city a Gewnan society known
as the Musical Society St. Paul. Its
organization took place on the date of
the birth of the great German poet
Schiller, and on Monday evening last it
gave its first public concert, or recep
tion. It was a very elegant affair, and
gave splendid evidence of the rapid
growth and prosperity of tiie society.
It was attended by all the representa
tive Germans of the city, and congratu
latory speeches were made by some ot
the most prominent orators of that na
tionality. Herr yon Goetzerx made an
address of welcome.in which he referred
to tiie birth of the society on so auspi
cious a day as the anniversary of the
birth of the great poet, and also to the
day of their tirst reception being 911 the
first day of May, when all nature is sup
posed to open up into new life. He
stated tiie objects of the society to be
the furtherance ol' musical instruction
and musical interests in this city, and
stated that the by-laws permitted the
invitation of ladies on all gala occasions.
Speeches were made by several other
gentlemen, and Louis Stern closed the
talk in ac eloquent address on the value
of such societies to the German popula
tion., and asked for v the warm support
of al! Germans in whom the love of their
fatherland had not yet been superseded
by love of the cold* hard dollar. Many
excellent selections of music were ren
dered under the leadership of Prof.
Fischer, of Boston, who has decided to
make St. Paul his futuie home, lierr
man Benz Jr. is president of the society,
and it can safely be stated that under
the guidance of this energetic young
native the Musical Society St. Paul
will flourish till it becomes one of tiie
grandest singing societies in the West.
Acreage of Phalea Park Not Yet
Unnecessary alarm has been occa
sioned by the persistent publication of
a false report of the action of thfl park
board. It is in relation to Pualen park.
The Globe alone gave a truthful re
cital of the facts. The other papers—
every one of them— have enunciated the
declaration that Phalen park has been
emasculated. But ttie fact still remains
that the resolution introduced in con
formity with the suggestion uf the board
of public works, to reduce the acreage
of the park, was unanimously laid upon
the table at Monday night's meeting of
the park commission. True, the cut
may eventually be made, but it has not
yet been made.
Ihe park board last evening took an
adjournment until next Tuesday even

I Know That Hood's Cures

'•Scarborough, N. V.. Jan. 23, 1893.
"To Whom It May Concern: I. the orig
innl of the above portrait, do cordially rec
ommend Hood's Sarsaparilla to all who may
be suffering with indigestion, impure blood,
humors, loss of appetite, or run down, or out
of order generally. It will mi rely help
you if there is any help for you. 1 have
used it myself and in our family for at least
fifteen years. I have found it a very great
benefit for malaria, chills and fever, rheuma
tism, kidney complaint and catarrh, even
iicn I considered myself Incura
ble. My first experience with Hood's Sarsa
pariila was about eight years ago, when I was
taken down with pneumonia, chills and
fever, rheumatism and a combination of dis
eases. 1 was then in .New York city, and by
advice of my physician went home to Scar
borough, where I now reside.
I Had No Appetita
and was all run down. Neighbors who came
iv to see me always told me that I would

Hood's- Saisaparilla, and after I had taken it
a few days I had a good appetite and felt
very much better. I took my thira bottle,
and iv a short time I was fully restored to
health, went back to New York and resumed
my business. 1 have once since then neg
lected to Keep my blood in good order, and
had an ulcer come on my leg just below the
ankle. Some said it was caused by rheu
matic affections. I again took Hood's Sarsa
parilla, and in a short time the sore healed
up and ha? never troubled me since. I will
gladly convince any one who will call on me
to the truth of this statement. 1 know from

What the Scientific American
Has to Say on the Sub
ject of Specialties.
Read What Mr. Geo. Haack
Has to Say About His
Experience With
an Obstinate
In a recent leading article, entitled
"Have a Specialty," which has attracted
the attention and admiration of vigor
ous thinkers, the Scientific American, a
journal recognized as a leader wherever
the English language is spoken, closes
with these accepted truths:
"it, does not take the world very long
to discover who is the best man for this
or that purpose, and when it finds out
that man win, has made a specialty of
one operation and unquestionably does
it better than any one else, the world
must avail itself of his labor.
"\\ c do not mean to argue that a man
should be like a horse, capable of enter
taining but one idea at a time, tot that
would be to advocate narrow-minded
ness; but wo do mean to say that no
man should be without out' essential
and prevailing object, in the prosecu
tion of which he is determined to ex
cel, and it does not make any difference
what that is, whether cleaning a gutter
or saving lives.
"All this adds weight to our first ad
vice; to nave a speeiaity and push it.
Be sure you are right before you select
The above excellent advice is quoted
here to emphasize "the Copeland physi
cians" claim that the true specialist, one
that selects a certain line of diseases
and makes their study and practice his
life work, cannot help but become more
proficient in their treatment than the
general bed-side practitioner.
One of the worst, as well as one of the
most common feature of ordinary
catarrh, is the extreme physical suffer
ing incident to every variety of head
ache. The burden of the complaint
most frequently made by those apply
ing for relief is that of intolerable pain
in the head. Such an illustration is
furnished in the following easy of Mr.
George iiaack, assistant foreman at the
Adam Decker company, and residing
with his family at 23u East Congress
state c.
■Mr. Ilnaek says: "If it is true, n* they say,
that one may have catarrh a long time 'Wiih
out knowing it, one tbtng is certain, and that
is, a mnn caul have his head nigh banting

Eczema, tetter and salt rheum are a few of
the names applied to this common form of
skin disease. It is an acute or chronic im
llammation of the skin, attended with severe
itching and great multiformity of lesions,
viz.: Papules, vesicles, pustules, scabs, etc.,
while a continuous discharge of serum or
dus is seldom absent in some part of its
course. From this definition it will be seen
that eczema may assume any one of many
forms, or, indeed, si combination of
forms. It varies much in its different
stages and in different parts of the
foody. One of the most common forms
attacks the skin in its thinnest places,
as tiie flexures of joints between
the Sneers, the eyelids, behind the ear. etc.
It begins with redness, burning and itching,
soon followed by little blisters: these blisters
break, and a thin, watery substance escapes,
which stains and stiffens linen. ["hi soon

UiO etiiiie boiiy if not checked by proper
treatment. In children the disease is espe
cially apt to occur oil the head, and often
spreads until the entire scalp is a mass of
crusts and scabs and the itching and burning
is almost unbearable. The mouth is often
affected, causing a thickening of the lips,
with deep cracks in them, which bleed on
such -silent provocation as smiling, exposure
to cr.ld winds, "etc.

not Drouerly treated, any one affected with

specialist for treatment. The physicians of
the Copeland Medical institute make a spe
cialty of skin diseases, and their charges fire
