SUlililMJilH DOUBT rilE COUNTY AUDITOR REFERS SHERIFFF CHAi'KI-fS HILL TO MIL BUTLER, WHO WILL JUDGE ITS MERIT LITTLE LIKELIHOOD OF THE SHERIFF'S PICKINGS BE- ING FATTENED. JUDGES SURPRISE" LAWYERS By Setting Cases on the Calendar By Setting Cases on the Calendar in Shape to Get Rapid Action. County Auditor- Sullivan yesterday referred to County Auditor Butler Sheriff Chapel's bill of $990 for ex- penses alleged to have been incurred in the hanging of Ermisch and Won-" igkeit. In his letter accompanying the bill, the auditor makes no com- ment except to ask if the conty attor ney desires to take any steps to pre- vent payment, as the bill has been al- lowed by the board of county com- missioners. Mr. Butler refused to express any opinion on the question when a Globe reporter asked him with ref erence to it. His friends claim that the sheriff is entitled to the actual cost of the erection and enclosure of the scaffold, "but nothing for the extra help neces sary to properly guard the prisoners. This view, based on the ground that the fees of hi? office are given to him in lieu of all labor the position may require. But any outside expense, -such as the furnishing of the jail, im provements about the jail building, ' erection of scaffold, etc., should be borne by the county. The great bulk of Sheriff Chapel's bill is for expenses alleged to have been incurred outside the erection of the scaffold. JUDGES TIRE OF DELAYS. Lawyers .Given a Rather Disa greeable Done. The June term of the district court opened yesterday morning, but the only business transacted was the call of the calender by Judges Kerr and Willis. Some of the attorneys were much dissatisiied with the manner in which the cases were set. They con- sidered it arbitrary. The cases were Bet as near in their order on the calender as possible. It has been cus tomary to dilly-dally along for the first few days of the term without getting down to business, but the judges. pro- pose to wade right in from the start this term, and this is not pleasing to some of the attorneys who have been napping on their cases. The base ball case comes up before Judge Otis on June 14 for its final hearing. Judge Kelly Is expected back from California in a few days. IN FAVOR OF PAVING. Committee on Streets of the As- sembly So Votes, The assembly committee on streets waded through considerable, business yesterday afternoon, and then did not • dispose of all the matters referred, The committee first resumed consideration of the award to Thomas Reilly of the contract., for paving. South Robert street with cedar blocks on a concrete foundation from. the Mississippi river to the Chicago Great Western tracks. James Alelady, who represented cer- tain protesting property owners, said that they wanted the matter referred . back to the board of public works in order to givo them a hearing and an opportunity to declare what kind of pavement they wanted. : At present, however, they preferred to have the improvement deferred for a year. S. P. Crosby, a stockholder in the American Hoist and Derrick com- pany, emphatically opposed any delay in paving the street. gUpon comparing the petitions for and against the immediate paving, it was found that property owners rep- resenting 2,051 feet favored the paving, as against 1,469 feet against it. Of the 2,051 feet in favor of the improvement over 1,300 feet belong to the Chicago Great Western railroad, which, under the law, is not. subject to any assess- ment for local improvements. i Assemblyman Lewis spoke in favor of awarding the contract and proceed- ing at once with the work. The street was sorely in need, of a .pavement. One could drive from St. Paul to Fari- bault and not find as poor places as there are on South Robert. street. A. M. Lawton indorsed Mr. Lewis, and on motion of the latter the committee voted to recommend the. award of the contract to. Thomas Reilly, whose bid is $7,300, or $1.15 per square yard, which means an assessment of about $2 a foot. ;_..' -; \Y The next matter to. come up was the final order to have i St. Peter street with asphalt from Third Street to College avenue. Two petitions were before the committee, one signed by property owners between Seventh and Tenth streets, asking for asphalt, and the other asking for cedar blocks on concrete, signed by property owners ON THE CORNER.

The committee was satisfied ..that;-. the ma- jority of the property Owner's between Seventh and Tenth street s'j'Want as- phalt, but that the majority between ■ Tenth street and College avenue prefer cedar blocks. The probable*- outcome will be that St. Peter street will be paved with asphalt from Third -street to Tenth street, and with cedar blocits from Tenth to College. . Aid. Murphy was present and made a vigorous argument in favor of an asphalt pavement, declaring that the property owners against it were those who had made no improvements'^, and that a cow path was good enough for them. The cmmittee then considered the final order for a sidewalk on the. north side of Summit avenue from Oxford < street to Snelling a.venue, which the ' mayor vetoed and which the board of aldermen passed over the veto. After hearing William C. Edwards' :: and James King for and against the side- walk, the committee by a vote of 4 to 5 (Johnson and Reardon) recommended that the final order pass. The mayor's veto was based on the ground that the petition for the sidewalk- was not signed by two-thirds of the j property owners along the street and that there- fore it was not legal.

Fritze preached the bac calaureate sermon at St. Paul's col- lege, St. Paul Park, Sunday, from Philippians iii., 13-14. "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, . forgetting those things which are be- hind and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press to- ward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." The speaker alluded to, first, the ob- ject to be attained, and, secondly, how to attain it. It is an exhibition of God's love to man that he called him into being and endowed him with mental and spiritual faculties. He placed within the breast of every man a holy ambition to pursue some great and noble end. To destroy this ambi tion, or not to satisfy the same, is base, wicked and damnable in the sight of God. God, in His providence, assigns to each one some noble sphere of action; to perform our duty well therein is our great life work. The speaker then enlarged on his theme, handling his subject masterly. The graduating class consisted of .four, who listened attentively and. with profit. Many instances taken from practical . life were used to illustrate the subject and produced a. good effect. Rev. W. F. Fritze is the presiding elder of the Minneapolis district, North German conference, M. E. church. '■" MJKENZIE PROMOTED . He Will Go From Rock. Island to Washington. .^' • Lieut. Col. -Alexander.; McKenzie, stationed at Rock Island,. 111., has been ordered by the secretary of war to report to . the chief of . engineers at Washington for duty as first assist- ant. Col. McKenzie is in charge of the improvements of the Mississippi river from the mouth of the Missouri to Minneapolis, and has the supervision of bridges across the Mississippi • be- tween Davenport, 10., and Rock Island," 111. He also has charge of the Galena river improvement and! the Dcs Moines rapids canal, and in addition he; is a member of the Missouri river commis sion. No one has been yet selected to succeed him. ; The news of Col. McKenzie's* pro- motion will gratify many in this city, who became acquainted with him at the time he was in charge of the lo cal river improvements - some years ago. He then resided with his young • daughter at the Hotel Metropolitan. *s A. R. U.

Sylvester Keliher, one of the men who are standing at the prison door with Eugene V. Debs, was present at a meeting of the local branch of the A. R. U., held at Assembly hall last night. Mr. Keliher is grand secretary of the A. R. U. He has been stopping at Minneapolis for some time past, and came over to meet the St. Paul members of the ' organization . again before starting for Chicago tonight or tomorrow to accept whatever, fate awaits himself and his associates. ■•Last night's meeting was .secret, but it is evident that the action of the United States court in the Debs case and the decision of the supreme court on the income 'tax question. were criticised, because a committee was appointed to draw up resolutions condemning both. . -*.;"—.: - PAY FOR STOLEN TIMBER. . ; State Official** Taking Legal Ad- .7 vice on the Matter. '■•• State Auditor Dunn has referred to the attorney general the cases of the trespassing lumbermen that are now in court who desire to settle the matter by paying a compromise price for the lumber taken unlawfully.' The amunts offered in settlement range from $3,000 to $7,000, and from one-third to one- half the amounts for which 'thee suits have been brought. State" Treasurer Koerner is opposed to a settlement unless the lumbermen will "pay prac tically the full value' of the lumber taken. Mr. Dunn has consulted the attorney general, and it is probable that he will give an opinion in the case in the course of a few days. ■-■' TRIBUNE ASKS PROTECTION In Its Exclusive Right to Associ ated Press News. Judge Nelson, of the United States court, yesterday heard and denied the motion of the Minneapolis Journal to be mads a party to the injunction suit of the Minneapolis Tribune to restrain the Associated Press from furnishing news to the Minneapolis Times, which is practically controlled by. the Jour- nal. Attorney Munn appeared for , the Tribune and Judge Cornish for the Journal. The Tribune's j suit is based on the claim that it has an exclusive. right to the Associated Press news in j that city, and that- the furnishing of it to the Times is. in violation of the contract. 7-7:77 * GAS COMPANY OFFICERS.

Looking up, with a smile, he said: "How are yuh, sit down." The woman stared' an instant, then insisted on his "going to one of the priests and signing the pledge. "O, no," he said with a short laugh, "I'm havin' too much fun. Sit down." Apparently he \ had never seen the woman before and he asked her who she was. "You are my brother," she said. He stared. v. .YYI;. "O, no, I ain't," he said decidedly. "You're off. I ain't nobody's brother." The wild look in her eye sobered him. She dragged him finally into the yard of the priest's residence, . and by this I time half a hundred curious people had collected. Suddenly : wrenching him- self' loose, he scaled the iron fence. She ; was' as quick as he. ' His jag de cayed him. Running out the gate, she caught him again. Two policemen came along at this instant and laid hands on the pair. The big fellow laughed. • YYY- "This," said he, "is a good thing. Pursued by a woman and pinched by coppers, and I wasn't sayin' a word to none o' yez." YYvf- ';,-.', The woman explained to the officers that the man was her brother. He swore he had never seen her bafore. "Why, it's 'sposterous," he said. "I never, saw her in my life. Now if she was a man I could smash her in the face. But she ain't a man; she's a woman, and what'r ye goin' to do?" . Over at the police station it devel oped that the woman was crazy and only imagined the man was her broth er. She w<as locked up arid he . was turned loose. As he walked away he turned around to Sergt. Horn and laughed. . "Say," he said, "it's a good thing. Ain't it the worst you ever s » I'm goin' back again and see what else I kin find." - ''■■■''■ Z j Twenty minutes later he was again sitting on the railing dreaming. V | Officer Brogan made the arrest, and later in the afternoon the woman was taken to the county jail.

The woman was seen in her cell asleep, and the jailer said that she is not at all' troublesome, •Indications are that she was suffer- ing from excitement, of some kind when she mistook a 1 stranger for, -her brother.

Y'VY^"-1 The citizens in the neighborhood of that portion of Langford £>ark , lying south of Blake avenue are of a literary turn of mind, judging from 7 the language of a petition that the park board received last night.

The ' petition says they will make daily' and almost con- stant ; use of the i same, j ' which at the present ' time stands empty, vacant, Idle, j unused," abandoned, deserted, lonesome, dreary and desolate— a per- manent and alluring source of temp- tation for the Infringement of the rules of your honorable board.".

';.7:-7 $ The habeas corpus case of ' Ida M. * Palmer to. recover | possession of her : three children from William E. Palm- er, the man from whom she secured a divorce last summer, came up for final hearing before Judge Otis yesterday," with the result that the children were ordered turned over to the mother, as provided by the original decree of di- vorce, and the separation of the father * from his. little ones gave rise to a pathetic • scene. ; 'YY;Y -.Y-Y. ;. : As related in the Globe some days ago, the husband claims that his wife got a divorce at Grand Forks by some fraudulent means, and that notice of the action was never - served on him. Notwithstanding that the mother was granted custody of - the children the father did not turn them over to her, but suddenly left for Arkansas, taking the little ones with him. Mrs. Palmer was stopping with her sister at Herman, Minn., and evident- ly got wind of her husband's intended return to this part of the country, for. on the day he 'arrived here on his way to Hudson, Wis., to work in a dairy, she was here and swore .out a writ of habeas corpus for the recovery of^the children. ' V ■'; '/* Attorney John L.. Townley repre sented the husband yesterday and County Attorney Butler appeared for the woman. Palmer attempted to show that he had not been served 'in person with a copy of the summons ', when the divorce suit was begun, and brought as a witness to prove his story R. S. Farnsworth, of Albert Lea, who was connected with the office of the sheriff at Grand Forks at the time. : • ' ''' '' ' Farnsworth's testimony was not pos itive, and the action being regular on its face, the court did not feel justified in. going back of the decree. But in ordering the children turned over, «it was with the provision that the order should in" no wise prejudice ' the right of Mr. j Palmer to have that question ffridlly "adjudicated in the' courts of 'xjorth: Dakota. . jf* Oil | PATHETIC GRIEF. ■•:- ; ! As", the father picked up his '. hat to ' depaj't from the court room, he calmly; stooped down and tenderly kissed | the , two.pljder children; who were standing outside the railing. The little ones are evidently not more than five and three years, respectively, but- both' showed plainly that they understood what was going on, for the tears began stream- ing, from their eyes. .They made .no Q^te^y nor did they move from where they, were sitting, except that the eld- ;est<cftip, a little girl, stood up. s.Y7^ :hc ! The father did not dare to look at them, for he had all he could do to 're- strain his feelings as it was — this was more than apparent' from the expres sion on his face. Walking up to the judge's bench, where , the mother was ' standing holding in her arms the youn gest child, a .little tot, seemingly less than two years old, the father placed his arm around the little fellow's j neck, buried his head between it's face and the mother's breast, and kissed the child for. several seconds. : 7 As ;he raised • his head and ; turned to walk away, his emotions were, too much for him. He made a violent ef- fort to compose himself, but the flood ] was irresistible. As he made a sudden dash out the door, the.' tears' flowed . down like rain drops, and the expres sion of his face was almost-enough to make anybody cry who gazed upon it. - V WANTED HIS FATHER. . V , - Even the baby now seemed to un- derstand, and as the father closed the door behind him, the little fellow gave a 1 scream •. and . endeavored to jump - " out of its mother's arms. She put him down and he ran to the door and made a frantic effort to open it, cry- ing all the time as if his little heart would, break. The mother took hold of him and dragged him away from. the door. She then tried to coax him to' be quiet, but it was some time. be- fore she could pacify the little fellow.. All this time the other two kept cry- ing silently, the very pictures of sad- ness. -• .<:A more touching scene for one . so;. simple was never witnessed in a court of justice. Yet. through it all the moth- er's look remained as cold and uncon cerned as though it were an every- day occurrence. If anything, she I seemed to be aggravated .to think the I little ones should be so loyal to their father.- .; ' ■ . '" ; ' ,rt:-< ; . Mr. Palmer is an intelligent-looking man, and there' is something about ' him that impresses one" with the idea that he is above the average in point of manhood. S His bearing throughout-: the hearing, tended to confirm this,' too. >He expressed his ;. readiness .'to make any kind of a compromise that -, j would be satisfactory to the woman, whereby^ the children 7" might be /.di- vided or kept in such mariner that both. parents might have access to ' them, .but the woman would consent to none," tt)^ spite of the - fact that the county attorney, : who represented ' her, ex- pressed the feeling/ that some; such cbtri promise ought to be entered into : voluntarily. 7;Y'.:7 7 YY Mrs. Palmer has a farm near Grand Forks, the community property hay- ing been granted. to her by* the court when she got the divorce. . After court -adjourned the children demurred to going with the mother. Palmer : himself endeavored to con- vince them that they must, and. finally all were prevailed upon. to do so ex- cept the eldest.- She absolutely refused arid clung to the father so strongly ; that Mrs. Palmer was compelled to go away without . her. The father will keep her for the present. Clubs in Reciprocal . Relations.

Merriam is to be elected as man- ager ,of I the next "■ Republican presi dential : campaign, gave rise to con- siderable r talk about '- the hotels and • other places where politicians congre- gate. j Some., time back the Globe printed an article of " similar import, • based on expressions of politicians who had heard the ex-governor's name mentioned frequently in the East as an able and a clever man. That such a selection is not at all unlikely under the circumstances is admitted by those .who have given the . matter thought, especially If a Western man shall be the candidate. But, aside from Merriam's merit and the pressing need of a master hand to guide the fight, there is no present basis for saying he will be selected. Even if the present chairman should resign, it is not likely that a new one would be chosen until after' the con- vention has nominated a candidate. Strange things have happened in na tional conventions, .and if McKinley does not succeed in his determination to be the standard bearer on a pro- tection platform there would be little or no chance that Merriam would be chairman.. And beyond that, as one of his astute friends remarked, there is no certainty that he would accept the position and undertake the tre mendous labor it involves. IMPERIAL KNIGHTS.

FIFIELD; 'PAULSON.- AXD OTHERS FIFIELD, PAULSON AND OTHERS PREACHING TO LARGE "z'..\-'r_ CROWDS AT A MIDWAY CAMP MEETING GOD'S SAVING *GU ACE VARIED BY GODJS SAVING GRACE VARIED BY DENUNCIATIONS OF DIFFER- ING SECTS. PROSCRIPTION ' IS PRACTICED For Religion's Sake Say the Preachers, and There's Trouble Ahead. Despite the rains, the services at the Adventist camp continue with a daily increasing- interest. Those who once hear the stirringl eloquence of Elder' G. E. Fifield, of Boston, as he lectures each evening on the living is- sues of the day, such as "True Amer icanism," "Religious Liberty," '.'The Foes of the Republic," etc., are sure to be interested, and the attendance from the cities is rapidly increasing. Delegates to the conference, which begins tomorrow, are pouring into the camp, and in the intervals between the services all are busy, getting settled in their temporary 'homes. The camp presents a very, neat and tidy appear ance. Visitors are always : welcome, and no pains are spared to make them feel at home. Public services are held every day at 10:30 a. m., and 2:30 and 7:30 p. m. Business meetings of various kinds, also youths' and children's meetings, are held in the intervals between the ' public services. Meetings are also held in the German and -Scandinavian languages. The 10:30 hour yesterday was oc cupied by Dr. Paulson, who continued his interesting and instructive series of lectures on "Healthful Living From a Bible Standpoint." In view of y.he fact that with but few exceptions, men and women are continually violating the laws of health which God has writ ten on their being, by improper habits of living, in eating and drinking, dressing, etc., he announced as his text Psalms, 119:126, "It is time for Thee, Lord, to work, for they have made void Thy law.". Early in .the day services were held by Elder H. R. Johnson, of Wisconsin, and Elder J. H. Durland, superintend ent of district No. 4, composed of Minnesota, Wisconsin, lowa, Nebraska. North and South Dakota, of Battle Creek, .Mich. Elder Durland occupied the pavilion pulpit at 2:30 m., taking as a founda tion for his discourse, 11. Tim. 1., 8-10, Present salvation, as brought tovlewln the text was his theme. He said in substance, "God hates sin, but loves the sinner. In . the very nature of things sin must be destroyed, but God is seeking by every means that In finite wisdom and love can devise, and Omnipotent power carry into effect to separate sin and sinner, so that the , sinner, may be saved, when sin. is finally destroyed. So the destruction of the'sinner Is not a display of God's wrath; but the result of his own re- fusal to let the Lord save him from the penalty of his sin. The Y'Y: FATE OF THE, SINNER, annihilation, death; Is an act of love on the part of God.* He has rejected Infinite love, and is a misery to him self and a menace and a curse to all with whom .he comes in contact, and so God in mercy and pity ends his miserable existence with destruction, utter and complete. Not even death itself, nothing but our own choice can separate us from the love of God. " At 7:30 p. m., the campers, reinforced by numerous arrivals from all over the state, and many from the cities, gathered in the pavilion to listen to Elder Fifield, as he discoursed on "The Foes of True Americanism." "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever a scepter of righteousness Is the scepter of Thy kingdom," were the words he chose as a text. He" sketched briefly the history of the world's great king doms, Babylon, Medo- Persia, Grecia, Rome, showing that, as each in turn perverted God's idea of government, It went down. The rock upon which each one of these . mighty ships of state struck and foundered was a union of and other authorities were quoted, who church and state, resulting in persecu tion for conscience's sake. He declared that the same danger now threatens the American ship of. state, Lafayette predicted that Romanism would make a desperate effort to dominate, and thus ruin the United States, as she had so many of earth's mightiest em- pires in the past. The steps that were taken, by the Roman church, In gain- ing possession of and thus accom- plishing the ruin of the Republic of Rome, were noticed, and the parallel between the histories of Borne and the United States was vividly drawn. Back there they secured the recogni tion by the government of the. Christ- tan religion, the exemption of church , property from taxation, the exemption ( of the clergy from public duties, and finally,' the' passage and enforcement of religious laws, chief among which were Sunday laws. The enforcement of these laws, of course, resulted in persecution, and the blood of 50,000,000 martyrs cries unto God from the ground for. vengeance. All this has been repeated in the United States, or is now In" process of fulfillment.' "Christianity" has been recognized by our government, church property ix- empted/Sunday laws passed, and per secution begun. Scores of the best citizens of the republic have been spied upon, in the privacy of their own homes, reported to the grand. jury, indicted, arrested, tried, convicted,. fined, imprisoned, and worked in the chain gang, for daring, in this supposed land of the free, and home of the brave, to exercise their God-given, constitution protected right Of working on Sunday. And all this is the work of professed Protestants, but In reality It is Romanism, pure arid simple. Macalester Commencement. Macalester Commeneenient.
