There was another laree audience at

Says He Did Nut Invite Political
Speakers to the "L*."
President Northrop made a short ad
dress yesterday morning to the students
at the state university. He said:
"In a city paper of last Saturday, in a
report of a political meeting, it was
stated that a speaker criticised Pres
ident Northrop and the management of
the state university because Mr. Mc-
Kinley and Mr. Reed were taken to the
university to address the students,
while Henry Grorxe, Mr. Harter and
Mi. Shearman were not. 1 understand,
also, that a St. Paul paper, alluding to
visit of Gov. Nelson to the university,
wished to know why Mr. Owen and
Gen. Brcktrr, the other candidates lor
governor, were not invited.
"I wish to say that 1 have never in
vited any political speaker and candi
date of any political party duriUK a po
litical campaign to visit the university.
Mr. McKink-y did not visit us. If Mr.
Reed came here, it was when 1 was in
New Mexico and 1 certainly did not in
vite him. Gov. Nelson came of his own
p.ccord and without any invitation. He
is governor and a recent, and has the
right to come when he" pleases, i dia
Dot invite him to come. If Mr. Owen
and Gen. Becker had paid us a visit
they would have been received with the
same courtesy and attention shown to
Gov. Nelson. 1 have done my very best
to keep the administration ot the uni
veratty free from partisan politics, and
to be perfectly fair and just" to all par
ties. It will be remembered that Re
gent Pillsbury, when I was absent, di
rected that a political meeting wiiich
was appointed to be held at the univer
sity should not be held here, und it was,
as I understand, held in another place"

The Republicans of Hennepin
County Swiped Every
thing in Si£ht.
One Representative and Three
Aldermen Escaped the
Pratt Wins Over Tbian by
4,3oo—The General
The vote cast in Minneapolis and
Hettnrptn county Tuesday surpassed
even the very high figure at which it
was put by the old wheel horses of both
parties. Forty thousand, in round
numbers, availed themselves of the
sovereign right of American citizenship
in Minneapolis and in the whole county
over 44,u(X) marched to the polls.
This in itself shows the great
interest which was taken in the
election. On the face of the re
turns Minneapolis is the only city in the
United States which was not materifljjr
affected by the Republican landslide,
just as in 1592 it was hot affected by the
Democratic landslide. The average Re
publican vote this year is substatially
the same as that received by the Re
publican nominee in IS'.»2. This shows
that the people of iiennepin county do
their own thinking and are not easily
swayed by the demagogue or calamity
The returns from the outlying towns
in Hennepin county are slow in coming
in, but from those received the Republi
can victory seems to be complete. In
15'.>2 the Republicans won in every in
stance with the solitary exception of T.
J. Buxton, Democrat, elected to the
office of county treasurer. The judicial
ticket was an exceptionally strong one
this year, both parties having placed in
nomination men of conceded learning
and irreproachable character. While
tl:e returns, as before stated, are not
complete, yet the Republicans have
certainly elected three out of the four
nominees, and probably their fourth
has been elected.
The city ticket shared the same fate
as that ot tlie county—the Republicans
winning: almost everything. Tne re
sult vf the mayoralty contest was a sur
prise to the Republicans themselves.
At no lime prior to tlie counting of the
ballots did the Republican city commit
tee feel safe over the election of their
candidate, Robert Pratt.
Mr. Pratt, while conceded to be a
clean man and having a good business
record, was, nevertheless, regarded as
weins weaker than his party, owing to
the prevalent belief that it elected he
would give an administration savoring
largely of the puritanical. On the
other hand, Mr. Thian's abilities were
recognized and his campaign was con
ducted in a vigorous manner in per
son. Being a capable. fluent
speaker and ot commanding prrs
ence his appearance on every platform
was the signal for an outburst of en
thusiasm, it was tins very fact which
inspired the Republicans with fear, but
nothing that Mr. Titian or any other
man could have done would have been
effectual in storming the Republican
dvalanciie. The total vote for mayor is
as follows:
Pratt. Kep., 19,654; Thlan, Dem., 15,
--352; Reeu, Pop.. 4.U90; Hasty, Pro., 534.
An analysis of the vote shows that
about 1,000 Prohibitionists desi-rted
their party, presumably tor Pratt, and
that Mr. Reed, Pop., received very
Dearly the full vote of his party con
trary to all predictions by Republicans
and Democrats. The most of the Pop
ulist vote in Minneapolis was made up
of Democrats a:id independents, very
few of the Republicans leaving their
party for the new banner of Populism.
From the opening to the close of the
campaign the A. P. A. was not even
mentioned, and, so far as the closest
scrutiny can disclose, they seem lo
have affected the results in no way.
Prior to the opening of the campaign
their boasts were loud and ex
travagant as to what they would
do. The Democratic nominees who
might be reasonably supposed to
have been the object of their attacks
pulled in every instance their full party
voles, and in one case, that of Dr.
Byrnes for county coroner, considera
bly more. Whatever they may have
done in other parts of the country, to
the civdil nf Minneapolis let it oe said
no such prejudice or ignorance was
allowed to iniiueuce the election, even
to the slightest appreciable degree.
The Populists, as was generally sup
posed, elected none of their nominees
to office. It is just barely possible that
Dr. Clark, their congressional nominee,
believed what he so often asserted that
he would be elected; if so, he was the
only person in Minneapolis who enter
tained lor a moment such an absurd no
tion. Oliver T. Etickson, congressional
Democratic nominee.conciucted a vigor
ous campaign, but the fates were
against him. Sol only did lie have to
contend with the Republicans, but the
Populists drew nearly all their strength
from tne Democratic and reform forces
for which Mr. Erickson himself stood.
In this connection, it may not be inap
propriate to state that during tTie whole
campaign not a single peisonal attack
waj made on a nominee of any party
§$y<3 U>at by the Populists on Mr.
Luren Fletcher, In the triangular
figiit, had little difficulty in securing his
return to congress. Nothing can be
said against Mr. Fletcher—only that he
is a Republican. (So far as Minneapolis,
and, for that matter, Minnesota, is con
ceruel, it is really belter to have Mr.
Fletcher in congress, being a member of
the dominant party in the bouse of rep
resentatives, than a Democrat, whose in
fluence would be very slight, being
of the minority. Mr. Fletcher has con
ducted au admirably clean campaign,
and from its opening to its cTose has
neither personally nor through those
representing him uttered a single word
from ihe platform or through the
columns of the press derogatory to the
personal character of either of
his opponents. If the Fifth district
must be represented t>y a Republican,
the Democrats will certainly not object
that such representative be Loren
liiu three Democratic committees—
county, city and congressional—dis
charged their duties in a capable, effi
cient manuer. Tlie odds against them
were tremendous. Of finances they had
practically none. More particularly is
v\s true of the congressional commit
Jk. Both the city and coun
ty committees worked as if
each member were himself a
candidate for the highest office within
tlie trilt of the people. The headquar
ters were kept open almost continu
ously day and night, and at no time
were they left without a capable uflicer
in chance. If the results be noi satis
lactory, a ray of sunshine illumines
them, reflected by the conscientious
work performed and persistent efforts
put forth by each aud every member ot
the two committees named.

Sorry for Owen — Thought He
Would Do Better.
Ignatius Donnelly was found last
evening at the Nieollet house, where he
sat absorbed in the latest election re
turns, when a reporter approached him
for an expression of his views on the
late landslide. He had very little to
say, taking his defeat, and the defeat of
the ticket, philosophically, believing it
useless to cry over spilt milk. He ad
mitted that he had expected Owen to
do better, but was well pleased with the
great gains made by the Populist candi
date in various sections of the state. In
regard to his own defeat, he said:
"I cannot say that I am sorry, in the
face of the returns, which show that the
next legislature will be overwhelmingly
Republican. If the Populists had made
any showing at all, or things had so
come around that they would have held
the balance of power, 1 should have felt
very bad not to have been in the midst
of the fray. As it is,l would be consider
ably inconvenieuced by my election,
inasmuch as my duties in the legis
lature would keep me from my
literary work and my lecturing,
without sufficient recompense for the
sacrifice of my time. I am free to
say that a large amount of money
wa3 used in the county to accom
plish my defeat. No, we are not dis
rupted, by any means, despite our dis
appointment in the defeat of Mr. Owen.
We will continue to fight the battle out
along the lines that we have laid down
in the past Every dog lias his day, and
ours is sure to come, but we sometimes
weary of waiting. Mr. Owens must feel
deeply gratified at the magnificent vote
he received in his own city. Had it not
been for the Democrats rushing ov^r to
Nelson we would have swept the state.
An effort will be made to keep the Rep
resentative alive, aud you can depend
upon it that at the next election we will
be in it with a vim. 1 have faith in the
future of our party, but we must not be

The Hatcher trial is over, and James
Hatcher is once more a free man. and
can never be tried again for the rruirder
of his brother. It took the jury but five
minutes yesterday afternoon to return
the verdict which every one expected.
As soon as the verdict was given Judge
Smith ordered the prisoner released,
and the members of the family, with
friends, crowded around the defendant
and offered their congratulations.
In the meantime the mystery remains
as great as ever. It is generally con
ceded that Johnny Jordan, who sothor-
OUfhly baffled the efforts of the attor^
neys and the court to find out anything
about the case, knows more than . he is
willing to tell in the matter. That was
apparent from the fact that the place
where he was catching frogs is scarcely
a stone's throw froi.i the place where
the tragedy took place, and it was the
very hour. Little Johnny, although
backward about giving his testimony,
was not backward about asking for his
witness fees and took a subpoena up to
the court to sign in place of ihe order.
A Social Affair.
Tonight the first strictly society affair
ever held by the Commercial club will
occur. It is the reception to the ladies,
and promises to be on a swell scale, al
though the cards read "informal." All
of the more prominent society ladies in
the city have promised to grace the oc
casion with their presence, and the
business men of the community will be
in attendance in large numbers. Yes

stated that he had received acceptances

termine the possibilities of the intro
duction of Texas fever into the empire
froQi expert opinions of American
veterinarians, which are now being
translated, was read with great interest
by Secretary Morton, of the department
of agriculture, whose advocacy of re
taliation by requiring a strict inspection
of German wines and liquors has been
told in these dispatches. The secretary
has investigated the question and finds
that authority to entirely exclude Ger
man products in retaliation for discrim
ination against American goods is
vested In the president by existing law,
a law which has been heretofore over
looked in the discussion of the question.
Secretary Morton had a conference with
the president and laid the law before
him. It is in United States statutes at
large, vol. 26, Fifty-first congress, page
141, chapter 839:
"An act providing for an inspection
of meats for exportation, prohibiting the
importation of adulterated articles of
food or drink, and authorizing the pres
ident to made proclamation in certain
cases, and for other purposes.
Chance to Retaliate.
Section 4, to which the secretary
called particular attention, Doth of the
United Slates authorities and those of
the German empire, reads:
"That whenever the president is sat
isfied that there is good reason to be
lieve any importation is being made or
is about to be made into the United
States from any foreign country of any
article used for human iooa or drink
that is adulterated, he (the president)
may issue ha proclamation, suspending
the importation of such articles from
such country tor whatever period o
time as he may think necessary," and
section 5 says:
"Wnenever the president shall bo sat
isfled that any unjust discriminations
are made by or under the authority of
any foreign state against the importa
tion to or sale in such foreign state any
product of the United States, he (the
president) may direct that such prod
ucts of such foreign state so discrimi
nating against any product ot the
United States as he may deem proper,
shall be excluded from importation to
the United States, and in such case he
(the president) shall make proclamation
of his direction in the premises, and
{Herein name the time when such di
rectiou against importation shall take
effect, and after such date the importa
tion of the articles named in sucli proc
lamation shall be unlawful. The presi
dent may at any time revoke, modify,
terminate or renew any such direction
as, in his opinion, the public interest
may require."
The secretary believes that this law is
the key to the situation, furnishing this
government with full power to retaliate
upon Germany for the exclusion of our
cattle. Either by the policy which he
lirst suggested, of requiring a strict in
spection of their wines, or by stronger
means. He said:
"In view of the reports as to adulter
ated wines which are constantly being
shipped from Europe into the United
States for the consumption of its citi
zens, why would it be unfair to require
tne governments of Germany and
Franco to cause chemical analysis to be
made of all wines, brandies and other
liquors which are exported for use in
the United States, the analysis to be
certified by the proper officers of those
two governments.
"It neither Germany or France will
take American beef, except with a gov
ernment certification to its wholesome
ness.why should the United States take
any edibles or beverages from them
without requiring likewise govern*
mental certification of their absolute
purity and wholesotneness?"
At the state department the last atti
tude of the.Geriuan government respect
inn our cattle is regarded as the natural
and proper outcome of the strong repre
sentations made by Minister Runyon.
The negotiations had reached a point
where each government was content to
rest its case upon queslions of fact.
First, whet her or not there were genu
ine cases of Texas fever among the cattle
Imported into Germany from the United
States, and, second, wliether or not the
disease can be communicated to Ger
man cattle. If, as stated in the dis-
Datch, the German government has so
tar receded from its first position —
justifying absolute exclusion uf our
cattle without reasonable proof upon
these important points—then tne state
department officials feel that our cattle
shippers have little to fear, and that the
German government has assumed a
very liberal attitude an^. one which is
likely to speedily result in the removal
of the embargo.

Berlin*, Nov. 7. — 'flic prohibition

Demurrer to the Suit Against the
stockyards Tariff.
Chicago, Nov. 7.—The receivers of
the Alchison road today filed their an
swer to the suit of VV. 'ii. Keeuan,the
livestock shipper who asked the federal
court to abolish as far as the Atchison
road is concerned the switching charge
of $2 per car on all shipments of stock
received at the union stockyards in
this city. The answer sets forth that
Keenan knew all about the charge when
he made the contract to ship the cattle,
and that as the stock was to be delivered
at the stockyards, the railroads could do
nothing but use the tracks of the stock
yards company to get it there; the
charge, therefore, of the Atcbison road
was something that the road had no
right to regulate. The stockyards
company demands of the roud an
amount for each car delivered at the
yards that compels the road to nsk that
the shipper make the amount good to
it or do business at a loss. The case of
Kt'enan is of great importance to ship
pers of livestock throughout the West,
and the decision, which will probably be
handed down in the course of the next
leu days, is eagerly watched tor.
Remains of Czar Alexander
Now Repose in Livadia
Sentinels, With Draped Col
ors, Guard the Imperial
Somber Journey Through Rus
sia Will Be Begun
Livadia, Nov. 7.—The massive, gild
ed coffin contains the remains of Czar
Alexander 111. was removed to the By
zantiue churcli yesterday evening.
There the body of the iate czar p ill lie
in state until tomorrow. A guard of
honor with draped colors is stationed in
front of the church.
At C o'clock in the evening the Cos
sacks who had been achn* as the im
perial body guard, attired in their lone
tunics with gold facings, took up their
positions along the cypress-strewn route
from the palace, all carrying lighted
torches,tmaklng a weird scene. The
processions of white-robed clergy then
emerged from the church and formed
in line across the path. The bells be
gan tolling, and soon afterwards tha
sound of children singing hymns was
heard la the distance. Then through
the darkness the glare of the torches
carried by the guards marched on either
side of the coffin could be perceived.
A sharp word of command, "present
arms" broke the solemn silence, and
amid the muffled rolling of many drums,
the procession entered the church path,
headed by sailors carrying lanterns and
banners and followed by the choir of
children dressed in white surplices.
They were followed by the clergy and
then came the coffin, surmounted by
the imperial crown and borne by Cos
sacks. Behind the coffin were tlie czar
and czarina, who was deeply veiled, the
Grand Dukes Sergius and Vladimir, the
queen of Greece and Princess Alix. of
Hesse-Darmstadt,the princess of Wales
ai.d the duchess of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha. the children belonging to the
imperial and royal families, and the
high court and military officers.
The Cossacks placed the coffin in
front of the church as the military band
played "How Great and Glorious Is God
in Zion," all present standing with un
covered heads.
As just then the hidden moon burst
through the clouds and illuminated the
scene of the background of the forest
clad slopes of the Livadia, there was a
strange contrast between the costumes
and uniforms of the officials, the white
robed clergy and the deep mourning
garments of the ladies. These groups
were surrounded by rows of glittering
bayonets, forming a frame-work of
steel to a remarkably striking picture.
After the hymn the coffin was borne
into the church and laid on the bier, at
each corner of which was a:i obelisk
covered with red cloth and surmounted
by paims.
When the mourners were arranged
around the bier the bishop of Simferopol
celebrated mass, after which the party
left the church and returned to the
dalace in carriages.
Czar Conciliating.
St. Petkbsburg, Nov. 7.-The cza
is showing great activity in answering
the many telegrams of condolence and
expressing loyalty which he receives,
and the impression prevails that he is
trying to demonstrate the fact that he is
courteous and genial, and that Russia
is extremely loyal. Replying to a mes
sage of sympathy and loyalty from the
nobles of Moscow the czar said: "In
union with you I shall find strength to
fulnil the arduous duty which has de
volved upon me so early, and 1 shall
devote all my power to the service of
my dear country."
