Air_:iist Schneid -r,charged with keep ing his saloon open in violation of the ordinance, was given a trial in the police court yesterday. This is the fifth time Schneider has been arrested on the same charge. The evidence given by the police yesterday showed that a party of fanners had driven up • to the saloon on the morning of. April 23 '■at 4:45 o'clock, and had been admitted by the proprietor. The 'defense was to the effect that the wife of one of the farmers was chilled and that the party being acquainted with Schneider, had stopped there to get warm. No drinks were sold or given away and as Schnei der was aroused from his sleep to admit the callers Judge Twohy dismissed the case. Baldwin Cannot Recover. Judge Otis has hied a decision in the case of Rufus J. Baldwin against Henry P. Stinson to the effect that the plaintiff is not entitled to recover. This was an action to set aside a foreclosure of a mortgage given for $10,000. There had been no redemption before the statutory time passed. Baldwin had agreed to pay 12 per cent interest and payments made were credited to the in terest without any objection or other direction by Baldwin. The court will not now order a change in that ar rangement, but holds Baldwin to his oral agreement since he allowed several years to pass after acquiesing to a non en forcible contract.

Smith, a Traveling Claim Agent, Is Taken Into Custody. Old Business Troubles in Kan sas City the Cause of His Arrest. ; Alleged to Have Swindled a Woman Out of a Large . Amount. Escaped the Detectives • for Two Years and Was Do ing Nicely. ' ' Lewis O. Smith, a traveling claim agent lor the Great Northern road, was arrested last evening by the Thiel detective agency. The arrest was made on the Great Northern train which left St. Paul at 7:30, and at 9 o'clock Smith, was brought back to St. .Paul. The charge against Smith is swindling. Sat urday last Manager Cooley, of the Thiel agency in this city, received from the Kansas City representative a letter stat in-., that Lewis O. Smith, who had been engaged in business in that city iu-IS9I, and was wanted there for twindiing, was supposed to be working for a rail road company in Montana. Accompany ing the letter was a photograph of Smith, and a general description of the man. From in quiry made by an operative of the agency it was learned that Smith was a traveling claim agent for the Great Northern, with headquarters in Montana. What pleased Manager Cooley most, however, was the state ment that Smith was in St. Paul on business for the company, and expected to leave for the West on the evening train. As usual with tiiis agency, as sistance was requested from the local police, and Special Detective Pothen detailed to assist the Thiel operatives in making the arrest. Smith was due at the office of the company at 4 o'clock, and the officers went to the place to nab him when he showed up. For some reason Smith did not put in an appear ance, but shortly before the train left, sent a porter to the office for his valise Felt It in His Bones. The detectives went to the train, and just as it pulied out of the depot Smith hoarded it. lie was told what was wanted, and advised that it would be much more pleasant for all concerned if he made no resistance. Smith evi dently thought so too, for he agreed to do as the officers advised. By this time the train was well on its way to Minne apolis, and arriving at tint city Smith and the officers transferred to a return ing train and were soon back to St. Paul. From what could be learned of the case last night it appears that Smith was engaged in the real estate business in Kansas City. In addition to this he was interested in a company engaged in laying tile pavement, lie became in volved in business troubles and left sud denly, owing various parties sums ranging from $1,000 to .15,000. It is Charged that the manner in which he wound up his business was not exactly legitimate, and one of the persons he obtained money from, a Mrs. Blake more, had him indicted by the grand juiv on a charge of swindling her out of $15,000. Smith left Kansas City early in 1801 and had not been heard of until a few days ago, when the manager of the Thiel agency in Kansas City heard he was en gaged in railroading in Montana. Word was sent to the agency in this city and his arrest followed. Smith is a" fine looking man, about thirty-live years old, and is well connected, his father, Hon. E. K. Smith, being a prominent banker at Le Sueur. Minn." Smith was not taken to the jail last night but occupied apartments at a hotel under the watch ful eye of a detective, lie will be taken to Kansas City today. A Weak Case. The following special was received late this morning: Special to tiie Gioue. Kansas City, Mo., May 9.— Lewis 0. Smith, arrested in St. Paul, was indict ed here in 18'Jl for grand larceny in stealing some articles from a house where he boarded. The case against him is very weak and he will probably not be brought back. Local officials have nut beeiiinakiug any efforts to find him. Auditorium Tonight. Opening concert. Chorus of 350 voices.

The Wisconsin Democracy United and Ready for Fight. Hon. E. C. Wall, chairman of the Democratic State committee of Wiscon sin, an eminent politician and a warm personal friend of Orover Cleveland, was at the Ryan yesterday, and will re main in the city for some time on a visit with his brothers, James and Whitney Wall. "1 will answer all of your questions to the best of my knowledge, as 1 do not think there is anything too good for the Globe/ said Mr. Wall as he was captured by a reporter in the lobby of the Ryan last night. "1 am afraid 1 will not be able to tell the readers of the Globe anything that will interest them. One thing 1 will say; we are not bothered in our state by office seekers, Everybody works for the party for the. sake of Democracy and not for the sake of gain. Our Democracy does not hinge on the prospects of getting a soft po sition under tha government, and we are almost entirely without such troub les. "I will say that we have two of the best senators of any state in the Union. Mr. Vilas is generally acknowledged as being such, and I am sure that as soon as Mr. Mitchell is given the opportunity, he will prove himself to be an excellent man. There is a wrong impression prevalent iv connection with his elec tion. Just because he happens to be a rich man. it is supposed by those who do not know him that he purchased his way to the senatorial chair. It is not true. Mr. Mitchell paid out ho money for the election; that is, no more than the few neces sary small sums incidental to any election. The people of the state of Wisconsin cannot be purchased by any candidates, and it is not safe to try to do such a thing. The Germans can be shown the right or wrong of any thing, but they cannot be bought. I will say that when the people find out the real material of which. Senator Mitchell is made they will discover in him a man with a gigantic intellect. If I he were a poor man today he -would i make himself rich from his- own exer i tions as a business man. "Everything is in a state of unison in politics ib the state of Wisconsin; . We have six congressmen, and .their inter ests are identical. There are no bicker ings among them, and the Democracy THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 9,. 1893. of our state is on a high plane. We be lieve in the principles of the party, and so long as Mr. Cleveland is a Democrat, which will be always, we will be with him. lie represents the fundamental principles of the party, and it is in con nection with such that he was elected.: "The selection of Greshain for secre tary of state was one of the most pleas ing things which could have been done for our state. Mr. Gresham has been a Democrat in fact for a number of years, and the 52 per cent of German popula tion which we have in our state was pleased with the selection. ; . "The people of Wisconsin were very much gratified by the appointment of Mr. Baker to Nicaragua. We know of the work which he has done in Minne sota and the difficulties which he has been compelled to labor under, and when we heard of his appointment we were filled with gratification. Wiscon sin is glad of the recognition of Minne sota. "1 have had three years of hard work, and I am now enjoying a few. weeks' vacation. I am not going to do a thing in St. Paul but enjoy myself with my brothers, ana 1 will throw the cares of business to the dogs. lam sorry for the prominence which has been given me, as i desire to be nothing but a good, common, fighting Democrat." MILLER'S DODGE. Ex-Treasurer Reis Dissects the Latest Childish Insinuation Against Him. A Straightforward Statement Touching tho Methods or Keeping the Books. Speaking of the insinuations of City Treasurer Miller, as put forth yester day. ex-Treasurer George Reis last night expressed himself as follows: "I would not at all answer anymore to the loving articles of Mr. Miller in which he continually uses such friendly and endearing terms as 1 have never before been treated with by any one, on account of the terrific and astounding effort he makes in the evening papers, I think I owe the public an explanation of what he brings forth in his last great effort. Of course I cannot, without hav ing access to the books, remember all the particulars in the Concord street matt but any reader who carefully reads the article giving the names and dates will notice, that the name first mentioned paying without penalty paid but a short time after it was due and before the date of judgment, the other parties who paid penalty paid three to six months later, excepting one, which can undoubtedly be explained when properly looked at. "About the sale which he insinuates was made and erased, it will turn out that it was never made at all. or else it would have remained where it was. I will here explain that generally a few days before a large sale work was com menced ahead of time to enter the amount of the sale to be mane in a col umn in the assessment book, so that the amount could be easily gotten at during the sale or immediately after, for con venience sake, there often being very busy days during such a time. After this had been done, the people who had pail in the meantime during the days or hours just before sale had, of course, to be struck out or erased; and so also those, which, perhaps! were entitled to damages under a standing resolution of the council providing for such offsets. ot which the one case before mentioned very likely is one. "As far as the column for judgment amounts is concerned, this was only a matter of convenience, and theie was no necessity of having them there at all. Many would pay in the meantime be tween the beginning and finishing of long judgment lists often started ahead of time, and of course had to be taken off. As to the last item of consolidating lots belonging to the same owner into one certificate,, the assessments were generally so small as to often be less than the costs to be taxed, and where the board would have consolidated them anyway, as they always did, when they had reason to believe that, any hardship might arise. Concerning the nonsense as to which party the people in question belonged to, I never knew till yesterday that they were not of one party, having always believed them to be Republicans."

Two Portly St. Paul Business Men in Training for the Event. Somewhere throughout the United States there is a combination traveling known as "The Two Johns," and many years ago they visited St. Paul. The combination consists of two gentlemen who are of a Falstaffin build and rather large of girdle and girth. It has been many years since they visited this city, and there was great rejoicing along the Fort Snelling extension Sunday after noon as two gentlemen of this descrip tion were seen wending their way to wards the city, and lovers of the play rejoiced at the supposed booking. Many left the traveled road aud Tom Lowry's coaches to otter their greeting of welcome, but were astonisiied to meet two of the jolliest of their towns men—Frank Huber and Charlie;Mathias. who were out training to be able to enter the prize contests to be awarded to slims at the coming turnfest. . They admitted it was pretty hard work, but they were going to get down to the welterweight class if they had to tramp it every day, and some of those Turners will have to guard their laurels close next summer. ACCIDENT ALLY KILLED. A Private Soldier at Snelling Shoots Himself. Albert Skinner, a private in Company E, Third regiment, stationed at Fort Snelling, accidentally shot himself yes terday morning, and died shortly after ward. Skinner was employed at the house of Lieut. Williams as helper, and was preparing to enjoy a furlough. While packing his trunk he decided to clean his re volver, and with the weapon in his hand, started down stairs, ln some maimer he stumbled and the pistol was discharged, the bullet striking him in the stomach near the navel, and. passing through his body, came out of his back. The family was aroused by the shot, and Skinner was found lying uncon scious in the cellar. He was taken to the post hospital, but lived only a few moments. lie was forty-live years old. a widower, and leaves a son, 1). A. Skinner, who lives in this city. Victoria Forgot Her Vows.

The usual practice at these, meetings is for each me mber to hand in a written report and after the roll has I been called a--*'- motion is made and car ried to adjourn. : The president of the park board being a new member was not on to the style of doing business, and after the re ports had been submit ted and the motion to adjourn put, iii quired as to the SBiise of this way of doing business. ". He gave it out as his opinion that the members should dis cuss the needs of each dep artment and endeavor to see that the finances of each were properly conducted. In ' case this was not done, he suggested^ the meet ings be dispensed with. The mayor read the law under which the committee holds its meetings, and endeavored to explain that there was really no ueed of exercising so much care at the sessions. The com ptroller also stated, with a view to a quick ad journment, that at the next meeting he would prepare a comparative statement showing the condition of the various funds for the present year, and als o for last year.

There was some discussion as to the time for the election of a chairman, but the mayor, who new holds that position, after reading the law, decided that he holds the office until January, 1891.

May Vet Be Completed, if the Cost Is Not High. The question of how :to raise $25,000 with which to finish the ward building at the city hospital was discussed at the meeting of the assembly committees on claims and ways and means yesterday. Mr. Doran thought it was very queer that with $150,000 at their command the hospital commission _ should leave the building uncompleted. Assistant Corporation Attorney Phil lips said the times were very different now than in 18S7, when the work was commenced. If good times had con tinued it would be comparatively easy to get the necessary sum to finish the building. . Mr. Lightner suggested that under the general law passed at the last session of the legislature the city might issue bonds. _B_B____B Mr. Phillips said the law provided that bonds' should not be issued in ex cess of 5 per cent of the assessed valua tion, and, as he understood the condi tion of the bonded debt.the amount was now in excess ot that sum. Mr. Lightner said that from informa tion he had received from the members of the medical staff at the hospital it was very necessary that the building be completed. In case of an epidemic of contagious diseases there would not be any place in the institution to accom modate the patients. The matter was finally referred to the building inspector to report as to the cost of the necessary work in complet ing the building/and to the corporation attorney and comptroller to decide as to whether the council could issue bonds or would have to include the amount in the next tax levy. . I The communication from the comp troller in regard to the $1,227 which the board of fire commissioners have on hand from the proceeds of sales of condemned property was laid over one week. The comptroller, Mr. Lightuer said, had been visited by the members of the tile board and the money would be turned over to the city treasurer in a day or so. The matter of appropriating; .„/• j Money for Band Concerts in Rice and Summit parks during the summer was discussed at length. Mr. Lightuer figured out the proposition of George Seibert, and as a result of his calculations said the concerts would cost about $80 per concert. Seibert wanted $1,000 from the -city, and thought the balance could be raised from private sub scription. Bandmaster Kleist, of the Second Regiment band, also sent a com munication in reference to the concerts. Mr. Lightner explained that last year the matter of concerts was referred to the comptroller, who reported there were no funds to apply to the concerts. Mr. Doran thought- this would be a good way to get out of the difficulty this year, and the matter was referred to the comptroller. The claim of the garbage contractor for.the month of April, amounting to $1.0:11.75, as per contract, was approved. A: resolution paying John C. Mc- Carthy $142 for services during March and April was recommended to pass. McCarthy. was discharged oy the mayor on March 3 'from., his position as bailiff in the police court. Up ' to date, how ever, the council has not concurred in the mayor's action, and. as .McCarthy's', name was left off the pay roll, this was passed to make him even. The comptroller's communication, ad vising that'the amount deducted from the lighting bill for lamps reported out by the police be put in the police fund, was not well thought of by the commit tee. Mr. Lightner said the money was paid, from the' general fund, and the amount for lamps not lighted was simply deducted from the monthly bills. Under the circumstances, he saw no reason for any such action. / ■.. For Every Imaginable Use. For pure luxury, for plain service.and for both— spring overcoats.

The banueen claim came up again in the shape of a letter from the city at torney, who announced that Sandeen bad no legal claim against the city. The matter was referred back to a sub committee to consider if the claimant had any equity against the city. Sow Is the Time lor Spring. Over coats.

A Daring House Worker Stopped on a Foraging Trip. A daring burglar attempted to ran sack the residence of Thomas J. O'Leary, at 3'J3 Walnut street, Satur day evening. The thief gained en trance to a vacant house adjoining the O'Leary residence, and from this point of vantage opened a window in the sec ond story. A female member of the household, who was alone in the house, saw the thief, and set up a series of screams that frightened the. fellow, and brought the police to the scene. - From the description given, the police are of ths opinion that the burglar is the same person who sandbagged the proprietor of a clothing store at 323 East Seventh street one night last week. The thug is evidently playing in hard luck, for after he had knocked the clothing store proprietor senseless, he was prevented from robbing the place .by the appearance of a clerk.

You can find cheap silks everywhere. We believe they begin as low as 19 and 22 and 25 cents a yard. Now, we don't sell cheap silks of that kind, but we do sell good silks — the best in the world — at the lowest prices. Genuine Habutai Silks, printed in France, this sea son's newest styles and col orings, 65 Cents a yard. If we followed the prevailing style of advertis ing we would say they're worth Si. They're not; but they are belter lhan silks said to be worth $i. See the point? Standard Twill India Silks are the best of all. Not only that, they're actually the cheapest silk one can buy. There's twice as much wear in them as in any of the cheaper silks, and a dozen times as much style. Cheney Brothers make them for the best retail trade in this coun try. Ours are the only gen uine Cheneyßrothers' Stand ard Twills in town. About 50 new pieces came last week. Price, Si. DRESS GOODS. Whipcords are the most popular among plain colored Dress Goods.
