With L. u.e..
Lieut. Gov. Day Left to Tread
TO PROTECT WORKInGMES
Is the Title of the Wyman
Bill Requiring Cleanly
The ceremonies attending the change
In the executive department of the
state were quite informal yesterday.
For the 'first lime in tlie history of the
state a lieutenant governor became the
chief executive, and was followed by
the president pro tempore of the senate
becoming lieutenant governor, and
thus necessitating changes on impor
tant committees, as wall as representa
tion in the senate from the Sixth dis
trict. After the ceremonies were con
cluded in the senate a group ot sen
ators were discussing the rapidity of
changes, ■ ami Senator Mcliale ap
plied the expression that is so apt for
the time: "i'he king is dead. Long
live th. king.'.'
Gov. Clough embraced the last op
portunity and called the senate to order
yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. Cnap-
Jain Forbes alluded, in his prayer, to
the changes, v. I asked a blessing upon
•the new and retiring officers. Ex -Lieut.
Gov. Rice was invited to a seat beside
the soon-to-becotne governor and gave
him a hearty handshake and a message
of good speed.
Two communications were then read
from the retiring governor.one to Lieut.
Gov. Clough and he other to the senate,
both announcing his resignation as gov
ernor 10 accept the office of United
Gov: Clough then delivered his salu
tatory-valedictory fort with much
earnestness of manner, lie said:
"Gentlemen": Before retiring from
this cilice i waul to thank every senator,
member of the house and every man in
the state of Minnesota for ail favors in
the past. And when 1 say friends i
mean you ail, for J am your friend. 1
am not going into oliico with a view of
puuisiiin . my enemies, no matter what
you may have read 111 some of the pa
pers, i intend to do what is right for
all, and 1 ought to know what i. right:
Unfortunately I never graduated from
a state university.' I! graduated from
the farm. Gentlemen, there's many a
laboring man there capable of being
governor of this state. 1 am from the
ranks of labor, and i want you to know
that i sympathize with the laboring
man. Thank God, 1 was blessed with
two hands and a desire to lift them uu
in behalf of the laboring man. I want
to say that in my judgment you havo
elected a first-class presiding officer. I
1 consider that it is a greater honor to j
preside over iliis body than to take the
governor's chair. Genti men. it there
is anything that I can do for you in my
new capacity I shall be ready to serve
you at any and ail times."
There was general applause at the
conclusion of the speech.
President Day was then called to the
chair, and Gov. Clough gave his hand a j
warm shake and said "God bless you"
ns he turned to leave.
President Day said, "The same to
you." and they separated, the retiring
official moving . ward the floor of the
Senator Yale was on his feet and sug
gested that the importance of the occa
sion should not go by unnoticed, and to
move a recess of thirty minutes to allow
senators an opportunity to pay their
respect- to the outgoing and incoming
President Day suggested a moment's
delay, and asked If Chief Justice Start
was in the room. Alter some delay the
chief justice was found leaning against
the wall beside Judge C. D. Kerr, and
he advanced to the secretary's desk,
where he was met by Mr. Clough. who
held up his hand and took the oath of
office as governor. The ceremony was
brief, ami the new executive made his
way. out of the chamber md down to
the executive chamber, whither lie was
followed by the senators and many
others to pay their respects.
When the thread 01 routine was taken
up again by the senate senator F. A.
Hodge offered the owing, which was
sdopted by a unanimous rising vote:
Whereas, Lieut. Gov. D. M. lough,
who lias presided over the deliberations
pf the senate with impartiality and fair
ne... has entered noon larger fields of
usefulness to the state: therefore, be it
Resolved, That we lender to him this
expression of our appreciation and our
be.t wishes for his success and happi
ness in the exalted station to which lie
has been called.

A Quiet Day of Continuous
In the house yesterday a busy day
was spent on strictly routine matters of
business. The formal resignation of
Kuute Nelson as governor was present
ed and was followed shortly afterward
by the official notification that in com
pliance with the law Lieut. Gov. Clough
had assumed the duties of governor.
A large batch of bills was reported
back from various committees to which
they had been referred with recom
mendations varying all the way from
indefinite postponement to "to pass."
The most important measure so re
ported was the capitol bill making
$250,000 immediately available for build

recommended, while Mr. Moore's bill
to repeal the original capitol bill was
recommended for indefinite postpone
ment, the report in both cases being

business proper was begun, however,

calling upon "Ole*' Holmau to apologize

over the first bill. Representative Johns'

The impression generally prevails
that Representative Staples is chairman

Of the pages.
The house committee on elections had
another session last night, and, it is
understood, arrived at a conclusion in
the Allen-Furlong contest. The ses
sion was strictly executive, and the
members declined to give any clue .to
their findings, but the impression pre
vails that Mr. Furlong will retain his
seat. In addition to the fact that Fur
long had the certificate of election and
the majority of the votes, he- has the
same points in his favor which settled
the contest iii the Probstfieid-Sinith
contest in the senate.
Mr. Allen, it seems, neglected to com
ply with the requirements of law with
reference to tiling his notice of contest,
thus leaving him without legal status.
Hiler Horton has handled Mr. Furlong's
end of the contest, and has made what
is universally conceded to be an able
defense. It is expected that even the
Republican members of the house will
sustain Furlong in his contest,
THEN THE _¥. P. MAY QUIT.
Prospect That Troubles With the
U. P. Will Be Patched Up.
Chicago, Jan. 31.— There is a strong
probability that the differences between
the Union Pacific and the Western
Trunk lines will be adjusted at the
meeting tomorrow. It is expected that
the Union Pacific will abandon its claim
for the long haul of business passing
through Denver and Ogden gateways '
and that a3 a consequence the boycott
against it will be lifted. Neither side to ;
the controversy is prepared to say in ad
vance of the meeting what action will
be taken concerning the Puget sound
business. The Union Pacific, however.
has strong hopes that it will be allowed
to insert its rates to Puget sound points 1
in the rate sheets. It is difficult to see •
how the other roads can allow this as
they are bound to the Northern Pacific .
in the strongest manner to allow that .
line the Puget sound business. If tha
Trunk line committee takes in the
Union Pacific as a member by allowing ,
it a share of Puget sound business it j
will certaiuly force the Northern Pa
cific out. The Alton and the North
western are standing stoutly by the
Union Pacific and all three have strong
hopes of victory or at least of receiving'
very material concessions in. tomor
row's meeting. . y_

classification, organization and gov
ernment of cities constitutes the chief
features in the title of the St Paul char
ter bill, introduced in the senate yes
terday under the patronage of Senator
Ozmun. The chief work in the prepar
ation was donejby Herman W. Phillips,
who was tor several years assistance
corporation attorney. For months there
have been meetings of business men
and the chamber of commerce to dis
cuss features of city government. In
fact, for the past four veins, the people
and the papers have discussed needed
chances in the present charter, and
the bill presented may be said to em
brace just such features as the people
demand at present. The drafting has
been done with care, and it is probable
that it will receive general support.
This is true to a greater extent if it can
be so shaped as not to interfere with
features of the Morgan bill or prevent
other cities from securing different
charters that suit them better. This
objection may be met by passing both
the Morgan bill and this one, with the
option left of adopting by St. Paul and
Minneapolis the bill best suited to the
needs of each. The objectiou of other
cities is warded off by a provision
which distinguishes between cities.
Two Classes of Cities.
The St. Paul biil provides for divid
ing cities into two classes, and its pro
visions are framed so that a charter of
one class may be applicable to cities of
over 30,000, while other provisions apply
to cities of less than. 30,000 inhabitants.
When a city of the second class reaches
a population of 30,000 it becomes a first
ciass city and will come under the pre
visions of the charter designed for
cities of the first class.
The bill has omnibus provisions, as
would be necessary when a dual charter
is proposed. This makes it very
voluminous, as it embraces full pro-
I visions for all the varied features of
cities and villages.
The bill makes a number of changes
in the present charter and is different,
in material points, from the present
charter of Minneapolis and also from the
bill introduced by Senator Howard. It
differs from the Minneapolis bill
slightly iv the number of elective
officers, but has other points of striking
difference. The present charter is
changed in the feature providing for
the selection of officers and in its pro
posing to abolish a number of- boards.
| The only elective officers are the may
or, comptroller and treasurer, besides
tiie assembly of nine members and an
aldermau from each ward. The oilier
officers are to be appointed by the may
or, aud to hold office at his pleasure.
The wards of the city may be reor
ganized alter a state or federal census,
but the reorganization is not to take
place oftener than once in five years.

PATHOS AXD ROMANCE.
How Ethel Burns Baker Won For
tune anil Hnsbasil,
CHICAGO. Jan. 31.— 8 o'clock this
evening occurs the romantic wed
ding or" Ethel Burns Baker and Charles
F. Kimball. Ethel as a little child
read all the fairy stories she could find.
Cinderella pleased her most of all.
and she dreamed of the magic slipper
and the good prince throughout her
orphan childhood at Evansville, Ind.
j "When Ethel Burns Baker and. Charles
I Fuller Kimball stood before the mm;
-; ister tonight the dream was realized,
i Miss Baker's father was a descendant
of a wealthy Xorth Carolina family.but
when he died his widow and one daugh
ter were left poor. The little family had
gone from the native state and set
tled In Evansville. Four years after
the father's death the mother, too,
passed away and Ethel was left penni
less. For twenty years she was al
most forgotten. She struggled along,
learned stenography and typewriting,
and began to make her own way. From
Evansville she went to Peoria, where
she procured a position as secretary to
A. C. Palmer, * general manager of
the Peoria. Decatur & Evansville rail
road. Three years ago she left for
Chicago and accepted a position in
the office of a lawyer in the Rookery
building and went to board at 479 Wash
One year ago Charles Fuller Kim
ball came to live at the same board
ing house. The two young persona
met daily and it was not long be
fore their sentiments of respect
changed. Four months ago they be
came engaged. About the same time
a lawyer who had spent many months
In fruitless search called at the board
ing house and told Miss Baker that she
was an heiress. Her grandfather had
died and she was the only heir to an
estate valued at $100,000. Negotia
tions were at once opened and Miss
Baker was able to prove her claim be
yond doubt. In a few days the grand
father's estate will be settled and the
bride's fortune will be added to that
of "her husband.
Charles F. Kimball, who is to wed
Miss Baker tonight, is the head of the
firm of C. F. Kimball & Co., pri
vate bankers and stock brokers at 93
and 94 La Salle street. He is thirty-one
years old and comes from an old Con
necticut family. He has been a resi
dent of Chicago for fifteen years, dur
ing which time he has become well
known in South side society. Miss
Baker is a pronounced blonde of con
siderable beauty and talent.
The prospect of relief from drastic
cathartics for persons troubled with
constipation is poor indeed. True they
act upon the bowels, but this they do
with violence, and their operation
tends to weaken the intestines, and is
prejudicial to the stomach. Hostet
ter's Stomach bitters is an effectual
laxative, but it neither gripes nor en
feebles. Furthermore, it promotes di
gestion and a regular action of the
liver and the kidneys. It is an efficient
barrier against and a remedy for ma
larial complaints and rheumatism, and
is of great benefit to the weak, ner
vous and aged. As a medicinal stimu
lant it cannot be surpassed. Physi
cians cordially recommend it. and its
professional indorsement is fully borne
out by popular experience. Appetite
and sleep are both improved by this
ageeable invigorant and alterative.
City of Mexico, Jan. Since the
great earthquake shock of the 22d of

Special to the Globe.
Washington; .Jan. 31.— 1f the close
friends of -'Senator Davis speak by the
caid, the light for his return to the sen
ate will be commenced at once. He
has shaken off the lethargy that seemed
to take possession of him after his re
election two years as*", aud is giving
evidence that he is .i..l the "dish"
Davis of former years. While he kept
well out of print during the late con
test, there were no strings that he could
pull that were not used against Nelson.
Uis close friends in Minnesota were in
constant communication with him. and
did their level best to head off the Nel
During the next session of congress
he will make more speeches than he has
been accustom.d to make since he has
been in the senate, and, more important
than this, he will keep in- closer touch
with his old friends all over the state.
Unless he loses interest he will be in
the fight for the delegation to the na
tional convention, especially if, as now
seems probable. Nelson and Merriam
start out to control it. If these two
gentlemen prove to be for McKinley.
Senator Davis will
Demand the Delegates
for himself, and then go in to get a dele
gation that he can turn to Reed cr Alli
son. He is rather more friendly to the
lowa man than to Heed, but either of
them will satisfy him.
And the interesting and important
fact in this matter is that the St. Paul
senator will have the support of three
of the Republican members of congress.
Tawney. Kiefer and Fletcher. Kiefer
and Fletcher are already committed to
the Maine man, and Tawney will be |
with Davis at every turn. as be ha. been
for the past four years. The fact that
the men who control the delegation will
in ail probability be the ones who will
control the patronage explains the rea
sons for the anxiety as to the control of
the delegation and why the senior sena
tor regards it as all important that his
friends control it.
In case the Republicans carry the
next national election, nearly all of the
important federal offices will be filled
in the first two years, or before the elec
tion of 15... at which the legislature
that wiil have the duty of choosing a
successor to Senator Davis will be
chosen. In this contest the control of
ail the best offices in the state will cut a
consideiable figure, and if the appoint
ments are made by Nelson the Davis
men will simply not be in it.
Another Country Senator.
There is a little tilk to the effect that
if Davis is not chosen no other St. Paul
man can win, and that the country will
get the other senatorial seat. This talk
greatly pleases the friends of both Con
gressman Tawney and the Manltato
schoolmaster, who are figuring on re
maining members of the lower house
until that time, and thus being able by
means ot the control of the country
postofSces to strengthen themselves for
the next contest. Tho Second district
member is again hard at work writing
letters and sending literature to all the
editors in the district, and preparing to
head off the fight that Editor Hunt and
other Washburn men have promised to
make against his renomination. The
professor believe in cultivating the
local editor, and he does it more' com
pletely than any of his colleagues.
In this connection a very good story
on McCleary's senatorial campaign is
revealed by the records of the govern
ment bindery. Under the law each
member of the lower house is untitled to
twenty-eight copies of the congressiaual
directory each time a new edition is
printed; any additional copies must be
bought and paid for by membcis. As j
soon as the professor came back to
Washington in December he proceeded
to lay in 140 additional copies.ou which,
and those of his quota, he had priuted
in gold letters the names of the mem
bers of both houses of the Minnesota
legislature, and about the middle of the
month each representative and senator
received his copy with the frank of Mr.
McCleary on the cover to indicate to
whom they were indebted.
Having previously writtten a neat
letter to each of these gentlemen con
gratulating them on their "magnifi
cent" victories over the hosts of De
mocracy and Populism, the professor
had reason to expect better treatment
in the senatorial right than he received,
but the method is ail right, and he will
continue to follow it with hope for the
Pensioning Aged Sons.
The United States senate has during
the past lew years gained the reputa
tion of being ready to pass almost any
kind of a measure that will take money
out of the treasury. Every appropria
tion bill is increased in the senate after
passing the house, and by threatening
to hold up the entire measure the lower
body is obliged to yield. A sample of
the prodigality of the senate has just
been furnished in the passage of a bill
"to pension Joseph W. Snyder, crippled
so .of a soldier of the war of 1512." Of
course Mr. Snyder is probably in need,
but he never served in any army of the
United States, and th.re is no more rea
son for the government keeping him
the balance of his life than tor its sup
porting any and all crippled and aged
people in the country. Mr. Snyder, by
the way, resides in Pennsylvania, and i
and senatorial courtesy helped Senators i
Cameron and Quay to push the bill
through the senate. The bill deserves
reading, because its lack of merit is so
apparent. It follows:
"That the secretary of the interior
be, and hereby is, authorized and re
quired to place on the pension roll the
name of Joseph W. Snyder, the aged
and crippled son of Jacob Snyder, de
ceased, late a private in Capt. Roger's
company, of Pennsylvania militia, in
the war ISI2, and to pay him a pension
at the rate of .S a month from and after
the passage of this act."
Carrying Oat Their Contract.
In the late campaign the American
Protective association took a prominent
part in behalf of Republican congres
sional candidates in all parts of the
country. . During the progress of the
campaign it was charged that the Re
publican congressional committee had
made a deal with this organization .by
the terms of which the Fifty-fourth con
gress, if Republican, would abolish con
tract schools among the various Indian

tribes. Various denominations have these
schools, but the larger number are
under tne control of the Catholic church ,
societies. Tim is principally due to
the fact that long before the govern
ment began the contract system that
church had its missions among . the
Indians, and in numerous cases was the
only orgauizatian in condition to do the
work. That they have done it well the
people of the Northwest know, but the
Republicans are evidently going to stop
the appropriations for tiiis purpose if
they are able, and thus cripple or end
these schools, for Senator Lodge, of
.Massachusetts, has introduced the fol
lowing amendment to the Indian bill:
IKiitl lii Three Years.
That tha secretary of the interior may make
contracts for the education of Indian pupils
during the fiscal year ending. June _.', 1.U6.
to an extent nut exceeding liti 2-3 per cent of
the amount so used for the fiscal year li' Jo.
ana each succeeding year he shall propor
tionately so reduce the amount thus used
that at the end of three years from the date
on which this act goes into effect all contracts
for sucu education shall cease.
This amendment will fail at this ses
sion, but the A. P. A. will insist upon
its being adopted a year hence when
they expect to be able to secure its pass
age. Minnesota is directly interested
in this matter, having at present such
schools at Clontarf. Swift county; Col
lege ville. Steams, Graceville, Big ..tune,
and at several other places.
