School Budget Is Passed—
an Murphy Gels After
Comptroller MeCardy*
At last the business streets of the
city of St. Paul are to be lighted
after dark. Electric arc lights of
2,000 candle power are to be substi
tuted for the pale and sickly gas
jets that only deepen the gloom that
now hangs over the down-town
streets. The brilliant metamorphosis
in store for the city will transform
the inky blackness of these thor
oughfares into avenues of beaming
light. Such will be the consequence
of the action of the board of alder
men last night, provided the assem
bly concurs with it, and there is lit
tle reason to doubt that it will.
The board passed a resolution, in
troduced by Aid. Brady, which in
structs the St. Paul Gas Light com
pany to place arc lights of 2,000 can
dle power at every street crossing
on the following streets:
Fourth street, from Jackson street
to Seven corners; Fifth and Sixth
streets, from Jackson street to Sev
enth street, and Wabasha and St.
Peter streets, from Third street to
College avenue.
The resolution also instructs the
gas company to discontinue all the
gas lamps on those streets between
the points named, and likewise
such gas lamps on the intersecting
streets as may be dispensed with.
This will effect a great saving to
the city, as .1 will dispense with sev
eral hundred gas lamps. The elec
tric lights are to be in operation
from sunset to sunrise, and will cost
the city $150 per lamp per year,
whereas they now cost $127.75 per
lamp per year, and are extinguished
at midnight.
The board also confirmed a con
tract with the St. Paul Gas Light
company for placing and maintain
ing electric arc lights at all the in
tersections of Seventh street from
Seven corners to Brook street, . and
providing for a discontinuance of
all the gas lamps between those
points. The resolution authorizing
this contract was introduced into the
assembly by Mr. Arosin, and there
in 'adopted. By the terms of the
contract confirmed last night the
city is to pay two-thirds of the ex
pense of erecting or placing the arc
lights at each crossing, which two
thirds will amount to $10 per lamp,
the gas company consenting to pay
the remaining $5. The saving to the
city on Seventh street alone will
amount to at least $2,500 a year. The
terms of this contract are also to
govern the placing of the electric
lights on Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Wa
basha and St. Peter streets, and the
work is to be completed by Sept. 15.
The board also adopted the ■•la
tion recommended by the board of
public works which provides for an
all-night service of the arc lights
stationed in the parks, about the
market house and in the masts, and
directs the dincontinuance of ninety
five gas lamps in the vicinity of
these arc lights. This will effect an
other saving of *2.A>. a year.
The city of St Paul may some
time have on its list of officials a
dog catcher— but not this summer.
The mayor vetoed the only dog
catcher ordinance that has succeeded
in passing both bodies of the coun
cil during the past three months.
The chief grounds for the veto were
stated in an accompanying message,
in which his honor demonstrated
that the ordinance was impractica
ble. The mayor declared that in his
opinion it would be impossible for a
man to construct a dog pound as re
quired, furnish food for and main
tain the dogs for five days, and em
ploy men and teams to gather in
the dogs, and meet all this expense
upon the basis of compensation
specified in the ordinance, which was
to allow the dog catcher 25 cents
for every dog license fee collected
by him and 25 cents for every dog
he drowns. The language "25 cents
for every license > collected by him"
would not necessarily insure the dog
catcher any revenue from that
source in case the owners of im
pounded dogs chose to obtain the
licenses at the city clerk's office.
The mayor's objection in short was
that the compensation provided was
Upon motion of Aid. Markham the
vote by which the ordinance was
passed was reconsidered. Then fol
lowed a debate between Aid. Mark
ham and Murphy as to the merits
of the ordinance. Aid. Markham said
he did not agree with the mayor that
25 .-■ nts for each dug license fee was
inadequate compensation. Aid. Mur
phy explained that the city attor
ney had expressed the opinion that
the dog catcher could not collect a
cent for licenses issued at the city
clerk's office.
Aid. Murphy then moved that the
vi to stand sustained, and such was
the decision of- the board by a vote
of 7 to 1, Aid. Markham voting "no."
The board concurred with the as
sembly in passing without alter;
the ordinance allowing the school
budget for the school year I£Bs and
IS9(>. Ihe whole amount asked for
and allowed is \~,~. :.*.■•. Aid. - Hare
voted for the ordinance, but to giving
his reasons therefor said thai he did
so under compulsion, as he was op
posed to allowing th« ?S,CSO for addi
tional teachers.
On motion of Aid. Brady preliminary
orders were passed for the paving of
the following small triangular por
tions left by the paving of Fifth, Sixth,
Seventh and St. Peter streets; Frank
lin street, from West Sixth to West
Seventh street; Exchange street,
from West Fifth street to West Sev
enth street; and Market street, from
West Sixth street to St. Peter street.
The contract between the' city and
the Great Northern Railroad com
pany whereby the. latter agrees to pay
one-third of the cost of the Como av
enue bridge, was finally approved. By
;... .»«..-,,« ibt comnajiv is to na*** its
one-third in installments as the work
progresses and the cost is ascertained.
Aid. Murphy, who is determined to
force Comptroller McCardy into a
corner, and compel him to explain
why it is there is no money in the
city treasury available to pay the po
licemen and firemen the salaries due
them, offered a resolution to the fol
lowing effect:
That the; city comptroller be re
quested to report forthwith to thecom
mon council the amount of moneys re
ceived by the city from the county
treasurer since the first day of
January, 1893, and that he specify in
detail the amount received on account
of the taxes of 1894, and the various
funds to which said amounts have
been icredlted, and also 'report the
amount received on account of taxes
for the year prior to the year 1894, and
also that he state the various funds to
which the amounts so received have
been credited.
The resolution was unanimously
The committee on license recom
mended the passage of an ordinance
abolishing the license system under
which expressmen and draymen at
present conduct their business and
substituting therefor a system of reg-
istration. Under the license system
drivers of one-horse carts pay a fee of
$5 a year, while the fee for two horses
is $10 and four or mere horses $25. The
registration plan simply requires the
draymen and expressmen to register
their names and the numbers of their
•vehicles once a year in the office of
the city clerk. The fee for the reg-
istration is $1. The driver must regis
ter his name and the number of his
vehicle when he first procures his per-
mit or right to engage in the business
of hauling goods, wares and mer
chandise. Afterwards he is required
to register on Jan. 1 of each year.
The permits are not transferable. The
ordinance requires the driver to at-
tach his name and the number of his
vehicle to the wagon, and also to
wear a badge bearing the number, and
indicating the nature of his business,
whether drayman or expressman*.
Otherwise it is similar to the present
ordinance regulating expressmen and
draymen in the matter of police super-
Under suspension of the rules, the
ordinance was passed.
The committee on etreets recom
mended the passage of the final order
for paving with granite blocks the in
tersections of the streets at Seven
Corners. The committee originally op
posed the order as it provides that the
cost of this paving shall be paid out
of the general fund, but after a con
ference with the city engineer, the com
mittee was satisfied that the present
cedar blocks covering these intersect
ing spaces ought to be torn up and a
granite pavement substituted in order
to raise these portions of the streets
to a level with the asphalt pavements
on Seventh, Fourth and Third streets.
The city engineer estimates the cost of
paving the intersections at $1,300. The
board passed the final order.
The ordinance authorizing the cor
poration attorney to employ help in
making a compilation of general or
dinances since 1881, was referred to the

The case of Fritz Mahler, charged
with selling liquor to a minor, was
again before the police court yester
day. The small boy to whom, it is al
leged, the beer was sold, declared that
his attitude on the question of strong
drink was identical with that of Lady
Henry Somerset. His father enter
tained different views, and it was his
father's beer, and not his own, that he
had conveyed forth from the saloon,
contrary to his natural inclinations
and better judgment. Moreover, he
had been provided with a written re
quest for the hateful stuff, signed by
papa. Judge Twohy is not convinced
that the beer of the father should be
visited upon the children even to the
first generation: He therefore took the
case under advisement.
Nellie Thompson wore a black hat
a la Gainsborough, a Trilby heart upon
her gentle bosom, and a very sleepy
look, when she smiled at Bailiff Mc-
Mahon yesterday morning. Nellie is a
genuine Tom boy. She is only twenty
two now, but she has already learned
to smoke cigarettes and drink beer as
well as anybody's big brother. Ser
geant Ross stated that Nellie runs
about wine houses on Seventh street
when she ought to be in bed, and that
she is likely to grow up a real wicked
girl. His honor, therefore, borrowed
all the money Nellie had— some $20—
to keep her out of mischief, and ad
vised her to be more attentive to her
Sunday'school lessons.
John Scott will spend two months at
Como. During the first thirty days he
will reflect upon the folly of being dis
orderly when he was already drunk.
During the next month he will shed
tears for having committed an error
to logic. John went down into the
Omaha yards Monday night and asked
the brakeman on a passenger train to
pass him to Chicago under the guise
of a wheel twisting understudy. When
the braKeman failed to grasp the sug
gestion John accented his arguments
with a rock. The monolithic hint fail

with such success that John was com

The writ of habeas •_-*-,*. pus for
Charles R. Lowe, charged with mur
der in the third degree for the death
of Clara Bergh, for whom he failed
to provide proper medical attend
ance and nursing while she was sick
and under his control in a room at
the Globe hotel, came up again be
fore Judge Egan yesterday on a new
writ, but Lowe failed to gain his
liberty, though his attorney succeed
ed in getting the court to doubting
as to what should be done in the
case. Judge Egan took the matter
under consideration, and promised to
give his decision tomorrow morning
Th- contention of Judge Card
Lowe's attorney, was that the com
plaint under which his client is held
is defective. The complaint charges
Lowe with having entered into a con
tract to care for the girl during her ap
proaching (illness— this was Lowe's
own explanation of how he came to be
in the room with her— then felon
eously and willfully failing to pro
vide for her, until she died. Judge
Card maintained that the allegations
of the complaint did not constitute
any offense whatever, and certainly
not murder in the third degree. The
complaint could not be construed to
charge manslaughter.
Judge Egan asked County Attorney
Butler for his definition of murder in
the third degree and the latter said it
was, according to the statute, a killing
wherein the act endangers the lives of
The court said that there being no
others whose lives were endangered by
the act, he doubted if it could be held
to be murder in the third degree. But
the county attorney held firmly to the
opposite view and insisted that if it
was not murder in the third degree it
was manslaughter, and that a man
might be held for murder who was
only guilty of manslaughter, the great
er offense including the lesser. ?.'.*
The court thought that according to
the allegations of fact set up in the
complaint the defendant should have
been charged with murder in the first
or second degree. If he was not guilty
of that he was guilty of nothing. He
shut the woman in a room and starved
her to death.
"Suppose he did not mean to starve
her to death?" suggested Attorney But-
"The intent is governed by the acts,"
replied Judge Egan. "I won't dis-
charge this man, but it strikes me that
the complaint is peculiar."
The court then thought that further
argument might be advisable, inas
much as the county attorney offered
to submit any number of authorities,
but the court was too general in his
reply and Mr. Butler began to feel a
trifle sore. After some further dis
cussion as to the futility of his at-
tempting to submit authorities unless
he knew on what particular points the
court desired information, the county
attorney remarked:
"Well, it seems as if the court is
never disposed to agree with me in
any proposition I advance."
"Oh, that is uncalled for.Mr. County
Attorney," replied Judge Egan with
some show of feeling.
"Well, I simply express the feeling
that comes to me from what has ta-
ken piace in this case," said Mr. But
ler calmly.
"Oh, I understand you gentlemen,"
said Judge Egan soothingly. "Every
lawyer thinks he is infallible and un
fortunately the court usually thinks he
is infallible and the result is not al
: ways satisfactory to all concerned.
But there is no occasion for gentle
men getting hostile."
"Logic is always hostile," replied
Butler coolly.
"No, I disagree with you, Mr. County
Attorney; logic is not hostile," said
the court reflectively.
"It is hostile to fallacy," retorted
the county attorney with a satanic
"That's true," replied the court.
"Why didn't you say that in the first
place?" he ask--'! as his spirit of humor
began to assert itself. "Gentlemen, I
will give, a decision in this case Thurs-
day morning without any further ar
gument," he continued, and so the
matter stands.
Will Play Ball and Give Patients
and Clients a Chance.
Those needing legal advice or medi
cal treatment should enter into con
tracts for these little luxuries at once,
because there will shortly be a great
scarcity of talent in both these pro
fessions in St. Paul— the doctors have
challenged the lawyers to play a game
of base ball. The date of the game has
not yet been set, but it will be just
as soon as the necessary arrangements
for ambulances, spiritual advisers and
hearses can be completed. Jutl-re
Egan is to umpire the game, and as
he will not be allowed to wear .mv
mask or carry a gun, those desiring
to succeed him on the bench should
lose no time Pi getting their wires in
order. Another suggestion that may
be of importance to the public is that
it has been hint- -l that the ur^er

between the city engineers survey of

Directed to the Smoke and Bi-
cycle Ordinances.
The aldermanic committee on streets
disposed of several matters yesterday
afternoon, some of which were acted
upon in the evening by the board of
aldermen, an account of whose pro
ceedings appears in this issue.
Assemblyman Parker's smoke ordi-
nance, which the assembly passed
some months ago, was for the third
time laid over, but not indefinitely, as
the committee accepted the invitation
of the engineer of the Albion apart
ment building to inspect the smoke
consumer in operation there. The de
vice is said to be very effective, simple
and economical. The committee will
examine it upon the day named for
the next meeting, and will then take
action on the ordinance.
Assemblyman Arosin's bicycle or
dinance was laid over, and so was the
assembly ordinance making it a mis
demeanor for citizens to walk along
the Omaha tracks between the East
city limits and the Westminster street
Minneapolis Submits Five Nantes
to Gov. dough.
At a meeting of the Trades Council.
of Minneapolis last week the names
of five men were, submitted to the gov
ernor, as candidates for appointment
on the state board of arbitration. The
delegate's named were D. Morrisey,
J. E. E. Johnson, E. H. Blackhurst,
Matt Nott and F. W. Schmidt. It is
expected that the governor will make
his appointments in a few days, but
at most Minneapolis can only expect
to get two of the members, as the law
provides that only two of the three
members shall be appointed by the
governor, and that the third member
shall be named by these two. If the
Intent of the law is carried out in all
particulars, there will be members
appointed at various places through
out the state, so that when little diffi
culties occur in places remote from
the cities a representative of the state
board can be reached without the
expense of giving the entire board a
long journey.

car in the Milwaukee yards early Mon
day morning, died of his injuries at the
city hospital at . a. m. yesterday.
An autopsy held in the afternoon by
Dr. Rothrock developed that the cause
of death was not the severe wounds
about the head, but an obscure injury
to the spine. Auge had evidently
struck upon his back on a tie, rail or
rock. The resulting hemorrhage about
the spine had pressed against the spi
nal cord and gradually extinguished
life. The remains will be sent back
to Mendota and there buried.
Discharged the Order for Same,
Continued sis to Others.
Judge Sanborn, of the United States
circuit court of appeals,- yesterday
heard argument on an order to show
cause why the receiver of the Brown
Bros. Grain company should not be
allowed to rent certain elevators owned
by the company along the line of the
Kansas City & Omaha railway. Judge
Duffy, of Nebraska, appeared for cer
tain creditors in opposition to the or
der, and the receiver was not represent
ed at all nor did he himself put in an
appearance. Judge Sanborn dis
charged the order to show cause as
far as it applied to some five or six
elevators in question, but the order
stands as to others.
An Old Circus Man Gets Remin-
The old circus man was in a remin-
I iscent mood, and when he began to
I talk about the "good old wagon show
i days" an interested crowd gathered
around to listen:
"So the Ringling Brothers are going !
1 to show here next Tuesday," he said i
musingly. "Well, well, how things do j
• change. I can remember when Ring- I
ling Brothers' circus was a little over- I
i land affair, and the entire outfit was |
; not worth 5500. Nowadays I expect
: their daily expenses are ten times that,
i and they own and operate four long :
; railroad trains. It only shows what j
I push and gcod business management i
i can do. - ■
i "The way Ringling Brothers got J
I their first elephant was funny. Or.c *
: day while they were showing in a lit- j
; tle town in southwest Missouri, a tele- I
i gram was handed to Al Ringling
i "It was from the mayor of a neigh-
boring town, and it informed the man- ]
agers that they could have an elephant
I if they would send after it toimedi- !
: dlately. An offer like that doesn't !
i come to a circus man every day, and
they jumped at it. A couple of the !
brothers went over to get the elephant. I
"They found the big brute at large
running amuck, and the whole town
in a panic. A small show had strand-
ed to the town several weeks before,
and the authorities had seized the ele
phant for the license.
"Cor a while the elephant behaved
pretty well. Then it. got a tantrum.
It broke out of the shed where it was
kept, nearly killed a hostler and ran I
i trumpeting up and down the main '
! street, breaking windows, demolish- '
: tog awnings and scaring children into '
; fits.
"Business was practically suspend- '
ed, women w-ere afraid to go shopping \
and the schools were in a state of de-
moralization. In his desperation the I
mayor wired to the Ringling Brothers. j
'"If you can catch that elephant you !
can have it,' he said.
"And you can bet they caught it. :
That was an easy job "for a circus
! man."
- Like the widow's bottle of oil their
. elephant contingent has grown until a
great herd of these ponderous beasts
. are among their zoologic possessions >
There are the rarest animals from !
. all the climes of the globe, including i
. some far more interesting in some re-
spects than any over seen here.
. The show in its every department is
. renlete with novelty and excellence, as
. will be manifest to the thousands who
visit it.

Swallowed by Mistake, and After
a Few Moments of Dreadful
Agony He Was Dead
"My God, what was .that?" de
manded Alonzo J. Cornell, an old
man on the West side yesterday
morning, as he threw a flask upon
the floor. The flask contained an
ounce of carbolic acid. In twenty
minutes Cornell was dead. He was
fifty-seven years of age, a laboring
man, and a well-known member of
the G. A. R. With his wife and
nine children he resided at 208 Rob
ertson street.
Yesterday morning he arose very
early, and was feeling in the best
of spirits. He remarked to his wife
that he would go to a neighboring
saloon and get a drink. A moment
later he caught sight of a half-pint
flask on top of a tall cupboard. Evi
dently thinking that he had found
some liquor, he reached up, grasped
the flask, and swallowed its con
tents. As soon as he learned his
appalling mistake he hurried to the
faucet and drank glass after glass
of water. His wife brought vinegar,
and he swallowed that. But his agony
was becoming unbearable. Groaning
heavily, he sank into a chair. The
white blisters forming about his lips
and chin, wherever the corroding
acid had touched the skin, told too
well what destruction was taking
place among the delicate internal
membranes. His groans at last
ceased, but his face grew paler. It
was covered with a cold sweat. His
breathing became faster and faster.
He placed his hands to his fore
head, and his chin sank upon his
heaving chest. "Oh, the needles in
my head!" he cried, wearily. Soon
his hands slipped down upon his
lap, and the torture was at an end.
It had been impossible to secure the
presence of a physician in time.
Cornell was born in Geneva, N. Y.
He enlisted first in the Twenty-fourth
infantry and again in the Fifteenth
cavalry of New York. He had been
married thirty-two years. Recently
he had been employed as a farm
hand in the harvest fields, and was
on the point of leaving again for the
country yesterday morning. No in
quest will be held. Coroner Whit
comb deciding that Cornell's death
was manifestly the result of an acci
dent. The deceased will be buried
under the auspices of the G. A. R.
And Won tin- White Bear Junior
Yacht Club Race.
The White Bear Junior Yacht club
sailed its regular weekly regatta yes-
terday afternoon. The Sister, sailed
by J. W. Johnson, won first honor,
with Dean's Aurelia in second place.

west blew with nearly uniform veloc
ity throughout the race. Shortly after
3 o'clock the boats crossed the line to
the following order: Britannia, Co-
quina, Mayflower, Daisy, Galatea, Au-
relia. Sister. It was just the wind for
the Sister, and, starting last, she fin-
ished first, being well sailed through-
out. Britannia, however, held the
lead past center, to Wildwood, giv-
' ing place to Mayflower and Aurelia
only. when center buoy was reached
I again on the return from the south end
j of the lake. Charles Stickney en
j tered the Coquina, and although the
breeze was not quite strong enough
for the trim little yawl rig, she sailed
a pretty race. Mayflower sailed her
first race With the new club yesterday.
! She was formerly called the Elsa.
The following is a list of the boats
; entered and their sailors, in the order
of their finish: Sister, J. W. Johnson;
j Aurelia, S. B. Dean; Coquina, C. A.

A Worthy and Respected Man, a
Revered Knight of Pythias. -
In the death of Adolph Henschel not
only his family but the Knights of Py
thias of St. Paul have suffered a
grievous loss. Mr. Henschel has re
sided in St. Paul since the city was a
mere hamlet, and has always borne a
high reputation as a neighbor, a bus
iness man and a public-spirited citi
zen. He had built up a profitable
business as a confectioner through
attention to his business and square
dealing. Up to a very short time ago
he was able to attend to his store as
usual, but a complication of diseases
wore his strength down until he could
resist no longer, and he succumbed to
the inevitable early Monday morning;.
Mr. Henschel was a native of Ger
many, born in 1537, ana came to St.
Paul in the early sixties. He was a
pioneer Pythian, one of the oldest
members of the order in St. Paul,
and a charter member of Champion
lodge. His funeral will be in charge
of the Knights of Pythias, and will
occur Thursday at 2 o'clock p. m.
The body will be taken to Pythian
hall, C 3 East Fifth street, where the
service of the order will be held at
the hour stated.
Fleets New Members— Garment
AVer 1; ers J Entertainment.
The carpenters' union held, a well
attended meeting at Assembly hall
last night. Three new members were
taken in and J. L. Hughes was chosen
as marshal for the Labor day parade.
The union passed a resolution impos
ing a tine of 25 cents on any member
caught wearing overalls not bearing
the label of the garment workers'
union. This is a movement in the in
terest of the factory girls, who have
recently organized a union and are
making an effort to Induce the differ
ent factories to employ only union
girls and thus entitle them to the use
of the label on their goods.
Speaking of the garment workers'
union, it may be stated that the girls
have decided to give an entertainment
at Assembly hall Thursday evening,
Aug. 29. Among other features of the
entertainment short addresses are to
be made by W. W. Erwin and J. J.
A Runaway on Concord Street
With Serious Result*.
Paul Fischer, a young man who
drives a wood wagon for Wolff &
Lehmann, of 472 South Bobert street,
had his left leg broken yesterday
morning through his team running
away. The horses took fright on Con-
cord street near Robert. They ran
but a short distance when the cord-
wood began to slide off. With tho
wood came the driver, but the wood
was on top. The latter was -soon un-
covered and attended by Dr. Beals.
It was found that Fischer's leg was
broken in two places below the knee,
and that he had received a severe
laceration cf the right upper arm..
He was removed to his residence on
the corner of South Robert and Con-'
gress streets. yy
"Wiis Laid tlie Corner Stone of Fort

'"Twas the tenth of September,
As we all well remember,"
As the anniversary of Perry's victory
on Lake Erie. It is the day of the na
tional encampment of the Grand Army
cT the Republic at Louisville. The
time is short; but cannot the Twin
Cities arrange an appropriate cere-
mony to commemorate the day at The
site cf the old land mark of early days?
It would freshen the interest of the
new generations in this the oldest.most
historic and most picturesque of the
many objects of Interest within and
adjacent to these cities. The old walls
are going to decay, and press rumors
say it is to be finally abandoned as
department headquarters. Perhaps a
rousing and historic celebration would
renew and quicken the interest of the
government and nation to such ex-
tent as to cause congress to rebuild its
tumbling walls, at least to the extent
of preservation to its romantic pictur-
esqueness. The* regular army, the
Grand Army posts of the state, the
state commandery of the Loyal Lsgicn,
the Sons of Veterans, the state nation-
al guard, city, county and state officials
as well as civic bodies should all par-
ticipate in the historic remembrance.
The Sworn Tormentors
Of the Spanish Inquisition never in-
flicted tortures more dreadful than
those endured by the victim of inflam
matory rheumatism. The chronic form
of this obstinate malady Is sufficiently
painful. Arrest it at the start with
stetter's Stomach Bitters and avoid
becoming a lifelong martyr. The Mil-
ters will remove malaria and kidney
complaints, dyspepsia, constipation,
nervousness and neuralgia, remedy de-
bility and hastens convalescence.
Governor Has the Petition.

taken the matter under consideration.
