CORRIDOR CHAT. William Sauntry, of Stillwater, was at the Nicollet yesterday, Mr. Sauntry is one of the prominent loggers of the jf ity. He reports the outlook for the season's business as very good and speaks encouragingly of the business situation in the prison city. "The high water," he said, "causes very little ap prehension in Stillwater. It is true that the river is higher than it has been for some years, but no damages have vet resulted from water and none are likely to. There is a lake near Still water into which the water backs, thus relieving us from the flood fears that torture the people lower down." Trncey R. Bangs, of Grand Forks, and a number of other North Dakota people were in Minneapolis yesterday, returning from Sioux Falls, where they instituted a lodge of Elks. The delega tion from North Dakota accompanied the Twin City boys. All returned yes terday morning and are unanimous in the expression that they were right royally entertained and in words of praise for the hospitality of the Elks of the South Dakota metropolis. The baby lodge consists of forty-two members. among whom are many of the most prominent business men of the city. Mr. Hangs is one of the coming young men of the state from which he hails. He already enjoys a lucrative law prac tice and has gained the reputation of being the Chauncey M. Depew of North Dakota, being easily the most fluent and versatile post prandial speaker in ihe state.' Abner , Dalrymple, the once famous ball player, was found at the Nicollet yesterday. In the last years of the sev enth decade there was no player in the country who could attract a larger share of public attention than did Mr. Dal rymple. As a member of the old Mil waukee league club, he lead the major organization in batting. Thence he went to 'Chicago, where, under Anson, lie was a prime factor in the long series of uninterrupted successes of this fa mous organization. In later years Mr. Dalrympie has dropped out of public sight, lie is now engaged In railroad ing, and is running a train on the Mil waukee Into st. Paul. Last year he played ill the Pacific league, but he now declares that he has abandoned the dia mond and taken up a more permanent, If less lucrative, means of livelihood. Speaking of the outlook for base ball this season, Mr. Dalrymple said: "There will be no Pacific coast league. Tiie people are all saving their silver* in expectation of visiting the world's fair, and nil kinds of legiti mate sports are bound to suffer there from. The big allied league will doubt less have a more prosperous year than last, but I do not think a twelve-league club can long exist. The circuit is too large and cumbersome. The future of base ball, however, is assured. It is firmly established in the hearts of the people and will continue to flourish, although a temporary setback may re sult from the unwise and avaricious tac tics of the magnates." Mr. Dalrymple talked entertainingly of "glass arms" and "Charley horses"— terms with which every fan is familiar. The glass arm is an affection known mainly to pitchers and catchers, and results from the (injudicious use or overwork of their throwing arms in the early spring, resulting in a cold, which stiffens alid contracts the muscles. The "Chatieyjhorsu" is applied more par ticularly (to basemen and fielders. It results "from the same causes, but is located ii) the limbs, and prevents prompt and agile movements. Mr. Dal rymple picks' Boston as a flag winner this year, but has a high opinion of Harry Wright's Quaker boys and An son's colt?. The latter, he says, are a promising lot of youngsters, who he ex pects to develop wonderfully under the "old man's" unexampled management. John 11. Wise, the newly appointed collector of the port at San Francisco, is registered at the West hotel. He is on his return from a visit to his old home in Virginia. Frank Casey, of Jamestown, N. D., was at the Nicollet yesterday. Mr. Casey is a sou of ex-Senator Casey, and is the manager of the large Carrington & Casey land and farming operations in North .Dakota. The principal farm of the company is located at Melville, about twenty miles north of Jamestown. There they will crop 4,ooo acres this year. Of, this 2,000 acres have already been Beetled. Mr. Casey says the out look for a crop in the Jim valley was never brighter. This valley is high and dry, and never fails to produce heavily in wet years. The feeling there, Mr. Casey says, is in remark able contrast to that in the Red river valley, where everything is drowned out. and many people are deterred from late seeding by fears of fall frosts. AT A RIPE OLD AGE. George MeMullen, a Pioneer Resi dent of the City, Gathered to Hie Fathers. George McMullen, well known in the community as a pioneer resident and contractor, died at his home. 1000 Chest nut avenue, yesterday morning. Mr. McMullen was a resident of this city for upwards of forty years, and was about eighty years old. He came here from Canada and followed his trade, that of stone mason. By industry and honest dealing he won the confidence of all, and before long was given many of the large stone contracts. lie built several of the large mills in this city, and also did con siderable bridge work for railroads. He was known over the city as a man of strictest integrity, and it was seldom required of him to sign a contract, as his verbal agreement was as good as his bond. He acquired a competence iv time, and finally became a fairly wealthy man. He leaves a widow and four children — Robert, the ex-street commissioner of the Fourth ward, Ar thur. George E., a contractor, and Mrs. S. G. Palmer. Court Briefs. Judge Hicks assumed his position as senior judge of the district bench yes terday, and, to further cement the claim, prepared for a removal from his room In the rear to that iv the front cor ner, formerly occupied by Judge Loch ren. where lie will be found hereafter. f i .

Nothing Sensational in the Grocers' Report on Bread Making:. Round-Up of a Day of News in the Sawmill City. R. D. Russell has been appointed by Gov. Nelson to succeed Judge Lochren on the bench of the Fourth judicial dis trict.' The appointment was made yes terday morning and handed to Lieut. Gov. Clough, who was at the capitol at the time, to bring over to Mr. Russell. The latter did not know of the appoint ment when he was called on by the Globe representative, but the informa tion was received by him through the telephone while the representative was present. Mr. Russell received the in telligence very complacently, and said he had understood on Saturday that he was to be appointed. Ho expressed himself as very grateful to the Minne apolis bar for its cordial and hearty suppott of him. He recognized tnat it was the efforts of the bar, of which he is the president, which had secured the result. Mr. Kussell said that he would not be able to rake hold of the office im medi ately on account of some pressing per sonal business, but within a few days he would get to work on the bench. Kobert D. Kussell was born in St. Louis, Mo., in 1851. The son of a me chanic, he learned the trade of his fath er, that of tinner, and worked at it through the time that he was attending school, large!) earning by his own hands the money nee s.iry to complete his education. He lii'iat.-d at Jackson ville, lii., in 1871, reeeiv :i_: Hie highest honors of his class, that of valedictor ian, and he afterwards bee. i me one of the trustees of his alma mater. His legal education was received in the office of Isaac L. Morrison, of Jackson ville, and he was admitted to practice in 1874 in the supreme court of Illinois at Ottawa. For some time previous to his removal to Minneapolis in 1883 he was city attorney of Jacksonville. His first legal connection in Minneapolis was as a member of the firm ot Kussell & Higby, his partner being a son of one of the appellate justices of Illi nois, on account of whose death Mr. Higby withdrew from the firm, and it then became Kussell. Emery <._. Keed, and so continued until Judge Emery's accession to the bench, when the firm became Kussell, Calhoun and Keed in 1887. Next it became Kussell & Keed, and this partnership was continued un til 1801, since which time Mr. Kussell has been in practice alone. At the beginning of 1889 Mr. Kussell became city attorney of Miuueapolis,and so continued for four years, retiring in January last. In the period of his offi cial life he had the settlement of some very important cases affecting the in terests of the city, such as the crossings cases, the St. Anthony Falls water power case against the city, and num erous personal damage cases. He is now serving in his second year as presi dent of the Minneapolis bar, whose cordial support of himself for the posi tion he now assumes is one of the things he prizes most in connection with the high honor conferred upon him. It is gossip that the next step in the program is for Mr. Morgan to suc ceed Judge Canty, and that such is the understanding among all concerned. THE SUMMER CARNIVAL. Return of tho Braae of Eastern Ambassadors. The summer carnival ambassadors, S. P. Jones and Stan Morrison, have re turned from their Eastern trip, fairly well pleased with the outlook. Mr. Jones said that there was little new which has not already been published from time to time. With regard to the meeting of the A. A. U., he had seen all the oilicers and had everything in hand, so that if the association should decide to hold an athletic meeting of the sort iv Minneapolis it would only be neces sary to give the word. The A. A. U. holds its meet in Chicago July 12, 13 and 14, and it will be impossible to have the men in Minneapolis to give exhibi tions until after the Chicago meet. This will bring this part of the pro gramme rather late in _he season, but if the carnival association concludes to hold it at, that time everything can be arranged. Regarding tennis, Mr. Jones saw Elt ing while in Chicago, and the latter will come. It was the advice of Campbell to hold the Minneapolis tournament after the Chicago tournament, which will bring it about the first week in Aug jst. The Chicago meet is the national tournament in doubles, which begins July 24 and lasts ten days. Letters will be sent by the carnival men to all tennis players, and the Minneapolis tournament will be held at the time when most of th em can come, probably after the Chicago event. No dickering was done with Eastern lacrosse teams. The executive committee of the car nival association held a lengthy session at carnival headquarters yesterday aft ernoon. The bid for grading the grounds was scaled clown and accepted. This partof the work will be pushed at once. Action on bids for other work on the grounds was delayed. The attention of all who took part in the rehearsal at New York Life build ing last Wednesday evening, and also any others who may wish to sing in the great concerts, is called to the fact that the chorus meets in central high school hall Wednesday evening at 7:30 o'clock. It is at this meeting that tickets are to be distributed entitling the holder to admission to Exposition hall on the evenings of the concerts. NOTHING! SENSATIONAL! In the Retail Grocers' Report on Bread. The Retail Grocers' association held a meeting at Norden hall last evening, at which considerable business was turned off. The committee appointed to raise funds for the expenses of the association, which includes keep ing a special agent in the field, reported that about 150 members were secured at §5 each, which was not ade quate. Fully $1,000 was needed. To supplement this, several wholesalers, particularly in oil, flour and sugar, were inaae to see the benefit accruing to them from the enforcement of the agreement of the retailers.and contributed ?(>75 for the use of the association. A. M. Knight was selected as the special agent. Something sensational was expected in the report of the committee that has been investigating the bakeries. It did not prove startling, however. Bread In spector Harry has been doing good work since Jan. 1, and the worst places have been already renovated. He was quoted as saying the cheap bread put on the market was made from the poorest flour and whitened with alum. Those who were selling two or three loaves for five cents were notified to put their names on their bread;, The committee on the grocers' picnic recommended that it be held at Minne tonka some day between June 22 and 29. The committee on early closing made SAINT PMJL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 9, 1803. a partial report. Most of the groce.s_ap proactied showed a willingness to Ci*,s® at 8 o'clock, beginning May 14. TiiC. committee will continue its work. Complaint was made with measures at the market place, and it was ordered that a report bt the city weigher be pre sented at the next meeting. W. W. Ford, second vice presujenj of the .association, resigned his office ana membership. . _j,C,' ~* I *~" " GRAY STANDS PAT. The Thirteenth Warder Has These Few Remarks. Aid. Gray is as cool as the weather has been up to date. He has received a notice from the council calling for the testimony in the tire department inves tigation. He said that he had been fur nished with a copy of the proceedings of last Wednesday's meeting of the council. - "Will you comply with the request to furnisli the testimony?" was asked. "There is no hurry about that." was the reply. "1 have not read it carefully enough and shall require some time to look it over." "Do you lake any stock in the talk of impeachment?" "1 don't care a continental for their talk in this respect. When the people of the Thirteenth ward are tired of me 1 will be willing to step out. The people are satisfied with the report, and a man is no good if he is not independent. If they had wanted the testimony, why did they not ask for it when the report was submitted? The five members of the committee would not have signed the report if they had not known it to be true as based on the testimony of competent witnesses. This was secured on the promise that the names of the witnesses would not be made public, and to call for it now is, not only an insult to the committee, but it would be a breach of confidence to the former. If we had brought in an artistic whitewash there would have been nothing said. We had at first in tended to ask for the dismissal of sev eral besides the chief, and 1 wonder what they would have done then." "If they would devote their time to smoking out some of the skunks they would be in better business," sar castically remarked • the alderman. "Some men will do anything to get an office, and anything to keep it. Our committee had a trying and difficult task. The report is based on 712 pages of copy, and it would be a pretty thing to go over all that again alter our task. "We had one batch of it stolen, and the stenographer was offered a good sum tor a copy of his notes, but they didn't get them. "I see the friends of Kunge claim we made a mistake in the date when the shoes were stolen. This is a mighty small hole to crawl out of, but it is not so. The tire took place the day before, but the shoes were taken on the day named." MIMSTERIAL MATTERS. Suggestions, Dogmas and Elec- tions All Get a Whirl. At the Presbyterian meeting, when the suggestion to bring the celebrated author of "Natural Laws of the Spirit ual World" was made, half a dozen of tha pastors present arose to commend the proposed effort, and some eloquent remarks were made about the great pro fessor, lie is delivering a course of lectures at the Lowell iustitute in Bos ton on "The Evolution of Man," to im mense audiences, and, if possible, he will be induced to give a short series on the same subject in this city some week in June. The ministers adopted a reso lution heartily indorsing the idea and promising united support. The general missionary meeting was suggested by Key. Pleasant Hunter, and it will be held probably in Westminster church. The date was not fixed, but it will be in June. Dr. Marshall, of Chi cago, field secretary of the Presbyterian Foreign Missionary society, will attend the meeting. Key. Dr. Heid,who has been president of the Montana Presbyterian college at Deer Lodge for tour years, was present and gave an Interesting account of the advancement of that institution. When he took charge it was deeply in debt, but the load has been entirely removed. At the Methodist gathering, Key. J. AY. Powell, of Brookings Center, read an able treatise upon "The Human in Christ," and called forth a very ani mated discussion from the clericals, who differed widely in opinion upon many points.but agreed that the definite actual teaching of the New Testament was that Christ was a man. Dr. Dorman, who is in Minneapolis lecturing for- the Y. M. C. A., was a vis itor. Officers for the ensuing term of otlice were elected as follows: President, K. N. McKaig, of Franklin Avenue M. E. church. Vice president, W. Hansom, Forest Heights. Secretary, A. F. Thompson, Twenty fourth Street M. E. church. The Baptist ministers had a practical discussion upon the question whether men can be made moral by act of legis lature. Key. E. S. Van Ness, of An oka, read the paper and upheld the view that man's conduct could be influ enced toward morality by legislation. POOR PATRIOTS.

There was a sudden termination to the case of Elida Nelson against the street railway company yesterday.

The plaintiff in the action had settled her claim shortly after the accident for -?:.()), but brought the present suit upon the claim that two reputable physicians, sent by the company to examine into FOR THROAT AND LUNG complaints, the best remedy is Cherry Pectoral In colds, bronchitis, la grippe, and croup, it is Prompt to Act sure to cure. - her condition, had misrepresented mat ters.- and had conspired to deceiyejief.- The decision - shows that the pianltiff had "IT* 'u'Oji 'That the settlement \va_s not honestly ina.ie." : "^ . -^_'_ : : .;' HEAVY SUIT - ■ '•-,-• '' i Against an Iron Company— Court -T-' '-'•--"& ' Briefs. ■;£?____';■■.-■ "..- The Land £ _T.vei' improvement com pany, incorporated under the laws of New Jersey, brought suit in the dis trict court yesterday against the West Superior Iron and Steel company, to recover $874,000 for material sold and delivered. The Heath Joint Hail com pany, Seymour & Hart aud the illette . Herzog company have been garnished. The case of A. U.

The de fense was ready for trial, but the coun ty attorney and his assistant had other important business to attend to, and the case was continued over the term. At the opening of the Hellen divorce case yesterday the plaintiff was not present, though the husband was on hand, dark, handsome and muscular, seated directly behind the attorney, and in close consultation with him. The long green table was well piled up with bulky legal packages, containing the depositions in the case, taken with much time and expense. The members of the jury even appeared interested, and in answering the questions of the attorneys they strove to remain on the case for ob vious reasons. The present trial before a jury is to decide the question of adultery. Should that charge not be substantiated the action on the grounds ot cruel and inhuman treatment will be tried later, before a court. No evidence was taken except that bearing on the statutory charge. In the afternoon the plaintiff opened the case by the reading of the Chicago depositions, which have been referred to before in the Tribune, introduced to show the intimacy of Hellen with Kittie Rankius at 884 . West Madison street, Chicago. The depositions went to show that Hellen and "the Ranking woman had lived in adjoining apartments, and had taken meals together, Hellen fur nishing the provisions. The readings showed that the defendant had acted in a very lover-like manner with the woman referred to, in the presence of others. During the reading of the pa pers Mrs. Hellon entered the court room quietly and took a seat behind her counsel, accompanied by another lady and an old gentleman. The husband and wife did not look at each other, each appearing unmoved. ANOKA CONFERENCE.
