The Ramsey County Democracy asso
ciation held a regular meeting last night
at Turner hall. The meeting was
held in the large hall owing to the fact
that the reception rooms were occupied
by the Harmonia Singing society, and
the larger hall was necessary to accom
modate the members of the club and the
visitors. There were nearly 200 present
in all. C. J. Meillicke, the president,
was in his chair, and Secretary C. G.
Hiuebaueh was at his table. Ihe mem
bers of the club present embraced gen
tlemen from various wards of the city.
Resolutions adopted by the Sixth Ward
German-American club relative to hold
ing live primaries and keeping the polls
open between 5 and S o'clock p. id.,
were read ana liled for future discus
sion. This was done after an extended
debate, participated in by Henry
kuehiie, 11. C. McCartey, P. D. Scau
nell. William Johnson and others.
When the head of "new business"
was reached James 11. Burns made a
speech in which he said that when the
club was organized three months ago it
was ridiculed by some people. The
purpose of the organization was to se
cure pure primaries and to secure the
right lor every man to have a vote and
get it counted. Snortiy after the form
ation of the club it had, unsolicited,
given him its indorsement for mayor,
and had supported him up to the pres
ent time, lie had no doubt that he
wouid be able to control the primaries.
The club has carried the point that it
started out to accomplish, and has been
assured that free primaries will be
guaranteed. In view of the fact that
three candidates in the held for mayor
would make a contest and work
against the harmony of the party,
and he being a Democrat
lie had come to the meeting to give back
into the hands of the club his former
indorsement, and leave to it to decide
who should be selected as the candidate
of the Democrats for mayor. He said
he wanted it understood that he had
made no dicker that induced him to
withdraw. He had warm friends, who
had supported him before. If He stayed
in the contest it would interfere with
others who are his friends, and who
want to secure places on the city ticket
for ward offices. He did not want to
pull his friends down in order that he
might climb higher.
At the conclusion of the speech there
were cries of "Good boy," cheers and
William Johnson, of tho First ward,
then made a speech, in which lie said
that he would like to see ex-Mayor
Robert A. Smith re-elected, and moved
that the ctub indorse him.
Secretary Heimbaugh stated that he
had told a number of friends that the
club would discuss nothing but pure
primaries at this meeting, and it would
not be keeping faith with them to in
dorse a candidate at the meeting.
H. C. McCartey said it would give
him great pleasure to see Mr. Smith the
Mr. Phillips, of the Sixth ward, de
clared that it would not be weli to ieave
the club without as tandard bearer, and
he felt that they were in duty bound to
select another candidate, and lie hoped
the indorsement of Mr. Smith would be
Mr. Cleary wanted a vote to be taken
Henry Kuehue was very enthusiastic,
and declared that, several clubs hav
ing already indorsed Mr. Smith, it was
due to the interest of harmony that this
club should declare for him.
Matt Bantz made a speech at some
length. He declared that the laboring
men were not in a position to push Mr.
Burns tor Mayor, and to continue di
vided would be to widen the breach.
They had one Republican mayor who
promised to clean out the stables, but
he allowed the filth to accumulate.
He wanted a mau who would cleau out
the mire, and he had faith in R. A.
Smith being able to do it. Cheers and
applause followed this speech.
J.T. Kerker was called upon and
made a speech in which he asked that
good men be selected for all the offices
to assist Mayor Smith in doing his duty.
P. D. Seannell made a speech in favor
of endorsing Mr. Smith at once.
At this point an opportunity was
Eiven any present who so desired to dis
cuss the question of primaries, but
there was no response.
The club then, by a rising vote, de
clared Robert A. Smith as its choice for
mayor. The opposition was called for,
and no one opposed the motion. It was
declared to be unanimously adopted
amidst hearty appiause.
On motion of Mr. McManus. the club
declared itself in favor of Burns for
auditor in the fall.
Mr. burns was called for aud made a
speech, in which he said that he wanted
it distinctly understood that his with
drawal was in the interest of harmony
and was not done because of any
pledges made by or to him. The club
had secured assurance that primaries
would be held that will be satisfactory
to all. Every man will have an equal
right in the convention whether he be
rich or poor. 1 c alluded to the tact that
part of his party and the party press
had been against him, and made charges
against him in the middle of a campaign.
He telt that he could win, but u,d not

club started out to accomplish had been
conceded. Mr. Burns was cheered dur

An Eighth ward Democratic meet

hall, corner of Western and Charles
street, the president, P. O'Flynn, being
in the chair.
Speeches were made by the president,
Eugene Daly, John C. Devereux, Mr.
Dimond. and others. A series of reso
lutions were adopted relative to the
primaries, which were the same
which other clubs have adopted,
and which have several time.s been
published in the Globe.
The crowning work of the evening
was the unanimous adoption of the fol
lowing resolution endorsing O. O. Cul
leu for mayor:

club the next Democratic candidate for

FIFTH WAKD DEMOCRATS.
They Organize a Club That Means
In no campaign in the past history of
the Fifth ward have the citizens of that
locality had so favorable a start in the
formation of a political club, or in the
selection of officers, as theyhad at the
meeting held last eveniug at the corner
of West Seventh and Goodhue. But a
very brief notice of the meeting had
been given, and it was after 8 o'clock
ere the stalwart Democrats assembled
to talk over the political situation and
its resultant benefits to their immediate
surroundings. By 8:20 a good-sized
crowd had gathered, and at 8:30 the hall
was filled to its seating capacity. Charles
Ringwald called the meeting to order,
and, upon motion of .fohn F. O'Brien,
Charles Lauer was nominated as chair
man. In making the nomination Mr..
O'Brien stated that he desired to see
representative men placed at the head
of the club, and men who would com
mand the respect of the commun
ity. The people had assembled
to discuss the welfare of the
ward, and in naming Charles
Lauer to guide the destinies ot the
organization he thought a representa
tive man of the ward had been se
lected. Mr. Lauer attempted to de
cline the honor, but James D. Nagle
shut him off in a seconding speech
which declared that the Fifth ward
wanted a solid foundation to start
with, and as Charlie had put up
many a solid foundation before he
thought he had better be entrusted with
the construction of the one now under
contemplation. This suggestion met
with general approval, and Charlie was
forced to tako the chair.
Many nominations and many refusals
were made for secretary, but after run
ning refusals of over a quarter of an
hour John F. O'Brien was finally se
lected, and thus the new club was ofii
cered as no Fifth ward club ever was
before. Chairman Lauer then asked
for the pleasure of the meeting, and
upon motion of William Koch a com
mittee of live was appointed to confer
with the city committee in relation to
having at least three polling places at
the coining primaries. The ward is a
large one, and heretofore has had only
one voting place, which was entirely in
adequate. Several opinions were ex
pressed ou this point, and it was finally
agreed to give the committee full
power, and have them ask the city com
mittee to grant their reg vest. The
committee is: William Kocii, chairman;
James D. Nagle, Charles Whittaker,
Charles Riugwald and Peter Eiswirth.
John H. Ives was here called upoit tor
a few remarks, and in a telling speech
scored the administration in facts, lig
ures and deeds. lie said that above all,
although some might have their prefer
ences for mayor or other candidates, he
hoped that the club as a unit would sup
port the nominees of the Democratic
convention. Speeches were made by
several other gentlemen present, when ,
some one called on Old Bob Palmer to
say a few words.
Bob's tall, gray-bearded figure is a
familiar one in the Fifth ward, aud he
is known as the friend of every man
within its precincts aud all are his
friends. Old Bob is not an orator, but
bis little plain and homely talk last
evening had more effect than if he had
been uiftod with the powers of Clay or
Webster. He said iiis Democracy was
of the old Jeffersonian style, so he had
lived and so he would die. He had lis
tened to and indorsed everything that
had been said during the evenins:,
but there was one point anent
the present administration that had
been overlooked. He called atten
tion to that poor woman in her
humble home on the hill whose hus
band, a police officer, had lost his life
doing his duty, shot down iv cold blood,
who was now compelled to take in
washing to support her little ones be
cause she was brutally refused the po
s'tion ot police matron, ai.d that job
given to a stranger from outside the
city, lie also referred to the case of
Mrs. Cummings, the mother of six or
phaned children, born, bred and raised
in this city, who was ousted to make
room for foreign favorites, and in clos
ing, with his right arm raised, he said
that in his home there were three good
Democratic votes to resent the insult to
these two mothers, aud that it would be
cast solidly airaiust any such Importa
tion of talent to supplant the native
born and our own needy. It was really
a dramatic incident to see that old gray
headed veteran of the police lorce,
grown so in its service, tear the pres
ent administration to shreds.
Considerable other routine discussion
was held, when the club adjourned to
meet again in two weeks from date at
the same place.

they have received at the hands ot this
administration, spoke of the high char
acter of Robert A. Smith, Judges Cory,
Twohy and Willis.and of Louis Paviau,
who is favored by many as the candidate
of the Hebrews for assemblyman, and
urged that they Indorse Smith for
mayor, Cory ana Twohy for judges, and
Pavian for the assembly. His remarks
were frequently and loudly cheered.
Mr. Moses also indorsed Smith, and
moved that it be the sense of the meet
ing that they should support him to a
man, and the motion was carried by a
unanimous and enthusiastic aye. The
same was true as to Judge Cory.
Mr. Shapero made the same motion as
to Judge Twohy for municipal judee
and Louis Pavian for the assembly, and
both motions were enthusiastically
Mr. Pavian thanked the club for its
indorsement, and said that if he were
elected he would do his utmost to pro
tect the interests of the Hebrews as
well as the interests of other American
citizens. He spoke of his twenty years'
active life in the city, and during all
that time the Democrats had never
failed to do right by the Hebrews. At
the hands of Mayor Smith they got jus
tice always. On his motion Pat Conley
was indorsed for alderman, and S. Mark
thanked them on behalf of Conley.
Pavian also spoke of the license out
rage, characterizing it as an imposition
on the Jews, and Indorsed in ttiestrong
est possible terms Robert A. Smith aud
Judges Cory and Twohy.
Mr. Michelowitz spoke in Hebrew,
long and earnestly, receiving frequent
applause, telling them of the injustice
done by the Republicans aud the kiud
ness and sympathy always shown by
Mayor Smith for the Jews.
Mr. Rubtfiistein made his maiden
speech, but it was hot and peppery
from beginning to the close, and related
to the old gang which contrasted with
the men indorsing Smith, Cory, Twohy,
Pavian and Conley. He announced
that 1,000 invitations had been printed
and would be sent out invitiug the
Hebrews, with their friends, to a meet
ing of the Central American-Hebrew

an apt quotation, lie. said he believed
the world to be too full of God to leave
room for accident, quoting Shakes
peare's familiar "Seven ages of man."
In speakiug of Abraham Lincoln Mr.
Donnelly said: "In one of the great
speeches at the beginning of that strug
ale culminating in our civil war of that
man whose greatness grows upon us
the further we become removed from
him— Abraham Lincoln."' Again he
said: "When we look over this splou
did land we see a people the best
clothed, the most cultured and the best
led race that live on this planet. Be
hind all this there is a Great Designer."
He then went back into the remote
past and showed how rude, uncouth
and uncultured were the progenitors
of modern man. He told how
they lived in rude huts unfit to
even stable animals in. He told
of the primitive coracles — rude
wickerwork frames over which skins
were stretched to form a boat— the
forefather of the ocean leviathans, "the
floating palaces of today." He told of
now the ancient Irishman always ear
ned a heavy battle-ax over his shoulder,
lie would meet another, converse with
him in an amicablu way, and then, in
case he disapDroved of any utterance,
would suddenly crush in his skull.
••Tne ancient Irishmen," said Mr. Don
nelly, "used to mix the brains of their
euemies with lime. This would harden
when shaped into spears, and
became an awful a nd irre
sistible weapon in offensive
warfare. In this way a man's brains
often became more powerful alter death
than when living." He told of the
superstitions of the olden times, and
said, "Our ancestors were much like
the Sioux." Mr. Donnelly recounted
how the women of Gaul, who, as Csesar
said, were often more ferocious than
the men, would, when they could fight
no longer any other way, lie down on
the ground and continue the struggle
with their legs, often kicking the
wind out of the Roman soldiers. "Out
of these ruder elements," continued, the
speaker, "came the gentle and refined
woman of this age." He believed, he
said, that the picture of Lady Macbeth
drawn in the Shakespeare plays, "so
called" [laughter], was a true likeness
of the woman of that period. He be
lieved that we were fortunate in being,
as it were, on the edge of barbarism.
In the cases of highly civilized races,
iii>9 U»? Chinese^ who had been such for
thousands of years, Uiere is ateudency
to too much uniformity. He quoted the
reply of an eminent German— Prof.
Liefer — who * said . the greatest
race was the otje ; with the greatest
necks ami largest Waist?. "It is the
combination of this : ancienF str^^«th
with modem ; cultivatiou that makes
this people what we are. Our liberties
were baptized in the blood of Charles
The speaker told of the recently dis
covered correspondence between tha
ancient bishops of Vi aland and the
holy see, found in the Vatican, throw
ing light on the early settlements along
the North American coast by the North
men. It appears by these old letters
that their settlements became extinct
about 100 years before Columbus'
discovery. Mr. Donnelly said ha
believed there was a wise Providence
back of all this which prevented the
spread of the Scandinavian colonies.
That time was not ripe; that this con
tinent was intended to be colonized by a
mixture of races. That it, like ancient
Britain, Ireland and France, was to be
come the mingling ground of a mixture
of those elements, which in combination
should form a new race— the American
people — the- most composite in the
world. He said this nation was per
meated from its foundations with the
law of liberty. He spoke ot the
Puritans in New England, the Quakers
of Pennsylvania, the Marylanders,
Lord Baltimore's Catholics, and farther
down the Atlantic coast the French
Hugenots, all tiie lovers of liberty and
the victim.! of persecution. He told of
the civilizing powers of steam, the
trans-Atlantic cable, the telegraph and
the telephone. These, with the cosmo
polite elements that have formed the
American people, will enable theni to
work out their destiny. -'I firmly be
lieve," declared Mr. Donnelly, "that all
these matters are a part of the wise
plan of some great power that stands
behind the order of all things."
