The Committee on Arrangements
Consider the Subject.
The committee on arrangements for
The committee on arrangements for
the Labor day celebration of the
trades and labor assembly considered
last night the advantages of Wild-
wood, Lake Shore, Lake Como and
Fort Snelling, deciding, at last, to
again hold the celebration at the Fort.
Various sp akers were mentioned for
the occasion, but their consent has not
yet been secured. The parade, which
will start from Rice park at 9:30 a. m..
is expected to contain many more
floats and bands than last year. At
least fight musical organizations will
be in* line. It is intended also that
the sports shall present a number of
novel features. A committee will try
to secure the co-operation of the busi-
ness houses by requesting the latter
to close during the whole of Labor
day, and to assist the trades and labor
assembly in furnishing prizes for the
sports. It is promised that the street
car company will furnish much better
facilities for reaching the Fort, and
that five steamboats will charge a
round trip rate of but fifteen cents be-
tween the Fort and the Jackson street
wharf. Tomorrow evening the com-
mittee on arrangements hold another
meeting. Friday the trades and labor
assembly will elect the chief marshal
for the parade, his two aids, and eight
assistant marshals, one of the latter
for each divison.

Likely to Be Brought—Officials
"Will Face the Storm of Crit
icism Together.
The heads of the, city departments
The beads of the, city departments
are beginning to miss the salaries
they did not draw for the month
of "July and are about to. take action
regarding the matter. In the course
cf a few days they will hold an un
obtrusive little meeting ■ and deter-
mine how and when that action' shall
be begun, and -who* shall? begin it.
In other words, they are ■ going to
sue the city of St. Paul for their un
paid salaries, and for the. full amount
thereof, as fixed by the act of the
legislature and incorporated in the
city charter.
From time to time the- city officials
have informally talked the matter
over. The plan of allowing some one
official to pose as the plaintiff in a
single action and thereby establish
a test case has been suggested, but
will probably be abandoned, as It
involved "the delicate question
which" city official would assume the
somewhat painful prominence his
name would attain as sole plaintiff
against the city an an action so un
popular with the taxpayers. The
probability is that the burden will
be equally divided among them —
that is to say, each official whose sal
ary is fixed by the charter and who
refuses to accept any reduction un
der the Hare resolution, will bring
suit individually, and thus face -to
gether the storm of criticism that
will follow, instead of huddling un
der shelter and leaving one lone man
to stand outside and brave the hur
ricane without a companion in his

Gen. Brooke, commander of the de

evening from his tour of inspection of j
the posts of the department. Gen. I
Brooke left St. Paul seven weeks ago,
being accompanied on his trip by his
aid-de-camp, Lieu*. Dean. When seen
by a Globe reporter at the Aber
deen last night, the general was busy
in a mass of accumulated mall, which
required his attention. He said: "As
a rule I always like to talk to you gen
tlemen of the press,- when there Is any-
thing to say. This trip is purely rou-
tine matter and I may go out again,' if
not this yean than next spring. I
found the department In very good
shape Indeed, but there is nothing of
any importance or general . interest
that I can tell you of the trip." ._■" ? ..
"What about the proposed changes
in concentrating troops at more im
j portant posts?"
"That will be the general policy of
the government, but from my own
I knowledge I know of no immediate
changes that ' are now to be' made.
Work on the new fort near Helena ls
progressing fairly, but it is a matter
of appropriations only upon which the
final finishing of the new post will
depend. Of other matters I have no
knowledge, except what I have seen in
the newspapers, although I confess
that I think sometimes that many dis
patches are sent without much founda
tion." . - 7- '?-'

Mayor Smith, mindful that Labor
■ Mayor Smith, mindful- that Labor'
day is soon- due, issued yesterday the
following proclamation:
. Whereas by the laws of the state of
Minnesota the first Monday of Sep
tember of each year has been desig
nated as Labor day, and the said day
thereby established as a legal holiday:
Now, therefore, in consonance with
the spirit of such enactment, setting
Labor day aside as a day of rest and
cessation from the cares of worldly
life, I, Robert A. Smith, mayor of the'
city of St. Paul, do hereby recommend
that en Monday the 2d day of Septem
ber, A. D. 1595, all business places In
which men and women are employed
in their usual avocations within this-
city shall be and remain closed,- in
order that tho fullest opportunity
shall be had by the people to celebrate
in such manner as commends itself
to their judgment the day set apart
by the state in recognition of the
worth and dignity of labor. , ,-.
So Says Sutton lnspector Bloom-
field Finding- Bad Boilers.
It had been reported that State Boil
er Inspector Sutton intended to re
sign, but when seen yesterday, Mr.
Sutton denied the truth of such a
statement, saying indignantly, that he
had no such intention.
Mr. Sutton has received a letter
from Inspector Bloomfield, who is out
in the Third district, inspecting the
boilers of threshing machines, in
which the inspector reports : having
found a number of boilers in Goodhue
county from which the blocks of tin,
used to give warning when the water
has gone down below the danger
point, had been removed and iron bolts
put in their places. This little block
of tin covers a hole in the boiler near
the fire box. When the water goes
down the tin melts, and the escaping
steam puts out the fire. The owners of
the machines evidently did not care
for any safeguard, but the inspector
promptly ordered the tin replaced.

George H. Walsh, ex-speaker of th«

day on his way North, where he will

crop of wheat. Mr. Walsh now re
sides in Fort Smith, Ark., and said
that the Indian reservation was fast
becoming crowded with white men. ■
There were now three of the white
men to every Indian on the reserva
tion. The government is carrying on
a very extensive survey, which seems
to indicate the throwing open of the
reservation by the next congress.

Pulls Off the Leu of a Live Cat—
Humane Society After Him.
Humane Society After Him.
Secretary Hutchins, of the humane
Secretary Hutchins, of the humane
society, yesterday swore out a war
rant for the arrest of Pat Larkin, a
little boy of ten, living on Water
street, on the West side. The charge
is cruelty to animals. Little Pat, it
is alleged, pulled the hind leg off
of a black cat named Billy. This
was certainly unkind to Billy, and
the case presents- few extenuating
circumstances. According to the tes
timony of another youth, who claims
that he witnessed the dismember-
ment of Billy, the latter was not an.
offensive cat. He never bothered Pat
when meal time arrived, but pre
ferred instead to steal impartially
of the neighbors. He did not scratch
nor bite. Even when he saw a dog
who made unfriendly remarks, Billy
would simply enlarge his tail and
pass on with dignity and a crooked
back. Although, like aH black cats,
he dearly loved the light of the moon
and stars, his enjoyment of the stilly
hours was tranquil and unobstrusive.
He rarely sang himself, although he
enjoyed the voices of his neighbors.
When he did sing, his carrolings
were clear and well modulated, if a
trifle shrill. Altogether, he was far
from being a wicked or depraved
cat. .
. But Monday of last week Billy re
fused to smoke a cigarette tendered
him by one of the boys. For this
trifling discourtesy Billy was tied
to a tree by a piece of wire that
passed around his neck and around
the tree. Then an unfeeling boy
caught the wretched cat's hind leg
and literally pulled it out of its
socket. The helpless victim was dy
ing when he was thrown into the
river. After him was cast his hind
leg. It is scarcely probable that the
little boys realized the brutality of
the act, but Secretary Hutchins in
tends that the matter^ shall be in

amount to be paid from month to

over $37,000, but the actual cost may

notice had not been served on him as
the law requires; also because a copy

the law requires that the original be
given to him. Judge Egan sustained
the objection and discharged the writ
without any argument as to the
merits of the case. Another writ was

Sheriff Chapel succeeded yester***-"
day in getting the board of county
commissioners to allow his bill for
$2,500 for serving warrants by mail
on persons who owe delinquent per
sonal property taxes/but he did not
get it through with the consent of
Mayor Smith or Commissioner Joyce.
The latter contended that there was
noith'ng to show that the sheriff had
made diligent search and distrained
property as 'the law provided he
should do before he was entitled to
his fees. He submitted a list of 200
names taken from the delinquent
list, and from every one of these per
sons, the commissioner said, the tax
could be collected without difficulty.
Commissioner Wright, for some
reason, thought the board had no
right to go behind the sheriff's affi
davit, but 'Mayor Smith took a differ
ent view of it. After considerable
discussion the bill was allowed, the
mayor and Joyce voting against it.
Mr. Chapel has not got the money
yet, and it is very doubtful if he
ever will get it. If he does, the law
that allows it to him should be wiped
from the statute books the first day
the next legislature assembles.
County Auditor Sullivan submit
ted a statement of the amount, of
delinquent personal property tax re
maining to be collected. Cancella
tions to the amount of $2,750 had
been made, and the remainder, $29,
--727, was returned to the clerk of the
court to secure judgments and then
have the sheriff levy executions, for
which Mr. Chapel will be allowed
some more fees.
The application of William Hamm
for a license to sell liquors for the
Kreutzer place ln New Canada was

committee to the effect that the license

cause the saloon is located within 600
feet of a school house.
The proposition to buy the Sarah'

When the bids of the proposed im
provement of Rice street came up, H.
C. Clausen entered a complaint be
cause less attention, he said, had been*
given to the north and south roads
than to those running east and west!
The latter were in good condition com-*
pared with the others and the speaker
believed that $250,000 worth of trade
was annually being diverted to Min
neapolis from the northern part of the
county on account of the poor roads;
St. Paul was the best market, but .'it;
was not accessible.'- •:<-■•*•* >iC-'Jr
Others who took thesameview of the
question : that Mi*. Clausen did said
that there seemed to be favoritism on
the part of the board in the matter of'
road improvement. To this Commis
sioner McCarron suggested that the
board take the complainants over the
ground next Saturday or Sunday. The
board decided to make the trip Satur

Loaded With Specimens.
The fishermen bold of the Commer-
. The fishermen bold of the Commer
cial club are back from their tour of
the Alexandria lakes. They brought
with them a dog fish, a pike and a
bass, together with a large assort-
ment of mysterious monsters which
they assert are fish. The party, led by
President Footner and Secretary Mc-
Ginnife, consisted of Ed Paradis, F. M.
Wheeler, D. Roussopoulos, Inspector
McNair, F. G. Walther, Dr. Sandberg,
Frank Brewster and others. A relief
expedition went up Saturday to bring.
the first party out of the wilderness.;
The fishers tried a new brand of bait
on each of five lakes— Mary, Reno, Os
car, Carlos and Miltona. At the latter
point they came upon the encamp-'
ment of the Chicago club and deso
lated the latter's larder. 7
The largest of the three genuine fish >
that returned with the expedition was
a ten-pound creature of the dog vari
ety. It was dragged into the boat by
F. G. Walther, who thought it was a
weed. A six-pound pike was taken by
another man with McGinnis' tackle,
who therefore claims the catch; while
Mr. Roussopoulos bought a five-pound
bass of a farmer. The consignment
of slimy mysteries that the rest of the
crowd had caught or stolen, were
seized on their arrival here, by Exec
utive Agent Fullerton, of the game
and fish commission. When, however, *
President Footner went up to the
agent's office and proved by. the unbi
ased testimony of Mr. McGinnis that
the contraband . things, barring a few
crabs and water snakes, were really'
catfish, Mr. Fullerton allowed the de

rested Saturday by Detective Kenaley,

j&^id was given a sentence of ninety
days. Although Mr. Hartley's disor-
derliness was a pleasing legal fiction,
he was glad enough to accept the hint
_<fod agree to. leave town at once, when.
Judge Twohy offered to suspend the
sentence . 77? ■ -■
B. B. Rickter, charged with assault-

the child without reason, but proof
of the beating was not clearly devel-
oped. . :'■ .. A'A'A
"Miss Emma. Mason, a merry maiden
with a Delia Fox curl, was charged
with combining the allurements of her
red shirt waist and Lorelei smile upon
the public streets to the moral detri

attempt to refute the ungallant asser
tion tomorrow. .
*'- Pertle Smith, a very colored per
son, who is also .known as "The White
Diamond," was before the court upon
two charges disorderly conduct and
.failure to support his wife. He and
.Mrs. Mary Smith had been arrested
together. Their hearts had been beat
ing as one heart, despite the fact that
Mary was. not Pertle's Mary and her
heart was not justified in so beating.
The genuine and authentic Mrs. Smith
took advantage of the Diamond's
presence in the halls of justice to serve
a warrant alleging that, for many
weeks,, she has received no financial
evidence of his marital devotion. The
case was continued until- the 21st.
? The Misses Susie La Bord and Es
ther Gallagher were charged with pac
ing pensively along, the new asphalt
of West Seventh street under the moon
rays of Saturday midnight. They
whispered sweet nothings in each
other's ears and giggled, as
young girls will, whenever a
man appeared in the vicinity.
This, of course, was romance and not
disorder. But the court has not read
Byron for many years, and he con
tinued Miss La Bord's case until to
morrow. Esther felt hurt at being ar
rested, and never came back for her
$20 ball money.

vilion at White Bear, who lost a con-

robbery of his safe a few weeks ago,
is once more the victim of covetous
visitors. Saturday Mr. Baker left his
"big diamond valued at $85 to glisten in
the moonlight and solitude of his bed
room. On his return he again recog
nized the moonlight, but not, alas!
the diamond.
John Cook was before the police court
yesterday charged with the larceny
'of a dozen ' chickens on the Bohe
mian fiats. Johnnie claimed that, al
though the chickens were taken, killed
and cooked, the full glory of the
achievement should not devolve upon
himself, alone. .Two other small boys
acted, he asserts, as his confreres,
coljaborators and accomplices. The

pended sentence of ninety days yester
day in the municipal court, provided
he! would make an Immediate and pro
longed visit to his cousins in the coun
try. The charge against Frank was
vagrancy, but Judge Twohy did not
forget that Mr. Waterman is said to
have passad three months of ennui at
Lake Como on a previous occasion sim
ply because some one had sold spuri
ous tickets to the Knights of Labor ball,
and Waterman resembled the unknown

Handed Down— Several of Local
Handed Down— Several of Local
Importance' 7,.*'
Judges Sanborn and Thayer, of the
Judges Sanborn and Thayer, of the
United States circuit court of appeals,
yesterday filed five decisions in cases
that had been pending in that court.
The one of the greatest local 'import
ance is the case of B. S. P. Reynolds,
plaintiff in error, vs. The Great North
ern Railway Company; error to the
circuit court of the United States for
the district of North Dakota. Judg
ment affirmed. Opinion by Sanborn, J.
Reynolds was driving along the line of
tho defendant's road near Fargo, ana
was run into by. a train at a private
crossing, his wagon being smashed,
his horse killed and himself injured.
The law of the state requires trains to
whistle when approaching crossings.
This tram did not whistle, but the
court instructed the jury that inas
much as it was a private crossing, it
was not required to, and it was on
this that the appeal was taken.
Charles N. Nelson, plaintiff in error
vs. The First National Bank of Kill
ingley; error to the United States cir
cuit court for the district of Minne
sota. Judgment affirmed. Opinion by
Sanborn. This was an action brought
against C. N. Nelson and D. M. Sabin
to recover $10,000 borrowed on preferred
stock of Seymour, Sabin & Co., which
was exchanged for worthless stock of
the Minnesota Thresher company with
out the knowledge or consent of the
The Northern Pacific Railroad Com
pany, plaintiff in error, vs. Patrick R.
Smith; error to the circuit court of the
United States for the district of North
Dakota. Judgment affirmed^ Opinion
by -Sanborn, J. This was an action to
have Smith ejected from certain prop
erty to which the railway company
claimed title in Bismarck.
■ J. E. Doze, appellant, vs. Alpheus
Smith. Appeal from the circuit court
of the United States for the southern
district of lowa Judgment affirmed.
Opinion by Thayer, J. This was an ac
tion to recover damages for infringe
ment on a patent stock watering
trough. The lower court held that
there was no Infringement
Cudahy Packing ComDany, plaintiff
in error, vs. Sioux National Bank of
Sioux City, Io. ; error to the circuit
court, of the United States for the
northern district of lowa. Judgment
affirmed. Opinion by Thayer, J. This
was a case in which judgment was re
covered against the packing company
:on account of some $11,000 paid on pig
checks under an agreement entered
into between it and the bank.
Two orders were also entered, one
'by* Judge Sanborn, overruling a de
murrer to the answer of defendant in
the case of Alfred and Lon Merritt
against The American Steel Barge
Company. This is the case in which
action for $500,000 damages for unlaw
ful conversion of stock was begun by
Merritts. Rockefeller is chief owner, of
the barge works. Judge Sanborn spent
the greater part of yesterday in cham
bers listening to arguments pro and
cop on the demurrer, Attorneys A. A.
and Henry E. Harris appearing for
the Merritts and Frank Kellogg and
.John H. Hoyt, of Cleveland, appear
ing for the barge company.
The other case was the Fireman's

A "Wonderfnl Wire-Walker.
A large Monday afternoon crowd
attended Como yesterday, when Prof.
Dugay repeated hi**} performances on
the wire rope. His great feature, that
of cooking a meal on a miniature
stove, balanced by the professor at the
center of . the wire, evoked warm ap
plause. It is one of the best tricks on
thd wire rope seen In this city. Prof.
Dugay had a big crowd in the evening,
when * a concert was - also ; given *by
Watson's orchestra. This orchestra is
composed of the members of the First
Regiment band, and, although only
organized* this season, has made a hit
in its everal engagements in the Twin
cities. The orchestra will give another
concert today, and in the afternoon at
4:15 and evening at 8:15 j Prof. Dugay
will be. seen. on the wire rope.
Only a Little WHile to Wait for
: Hiu-.-.li-L*i Bros.** Big Circus.
, The rapid approach of Rlngling day*
In this city rias created wide-spread
interest, and it Is safe to predict that
the great amusement enterprise known
as ; Ringling Bros.' World's Greatest
Shows will receive an enthusiastic wel
come when it exhibits here next Tues-
day. Ringling Bros.' exhibition is
larger, grander and more comprehen
sive than ever this year, and the press
of . other cities unhesitatingly pro
nounce It the greatest enterprise of
its kind in the world. In point of nov
elty or in the number of great feat
ures no other show can approach it.
The concerts of the Liberatl band
alone constitute a grand and complete
entertainment, and. musical people are
especially interested in this grand ex-
tra feature of .the. big show. . The
triple ring performance is beyond all
comparison the. finest ever seen in
America. The menagerie, with its
giant giraffe, the ponderous hippopota
mus and the many other rare and curi
ous wild beasts; the horse fair with
its 400 valuable horses ; the grand open
ing tournament; the Roman hippo
drome, with its thrilling standing
races, its exciting two and four-horse
chariot races . and other engrossing
contests, all contribute to a perform-
ance which in extent, *\iariety and cost-
liness, defies description. We would
call particular attention to the pro
cession, which will leave the show
grounds at 10 o'clock on the morning
of the exhibition, and move over the
principal down-town streets. Ringling
Bros, have always been famed for
their great street pageant, but this
year's effort far suspasses that of any
previous year. Nothing more resplen-
dent or gorgeously beautiful could be
imagined. The grounds selected are
at corner St. Albans street and Univer
sity avenue.
The Convention of Agricultural

After the convention the editors will

and Almshouses iv Bud Condi
Secretary Hart has returned from a
tour of Inspection of state and county
institutions in the northern part of the
state, and he repors the condition of
affairs in the Otter Tail county alms

crowded condition, decent accommo
dations for the ; inmates not
having been made. Mr. Hart was ac
companied by Dr. Folwell, of the state
