tered out, company by company, at
the whim of our adjutant general and
without any cause whatever, how long
will it endure? And how, long does it
deserve to endure, if it tamely submits
to such outrage -.. A'- '. -'• ' ■'; . - *•
When this order was issued; as was
currently printed in the newspaper
(without denial). Adjutant General
Muehlberg stated that the question
of Sergeant Kelly's commission to be
captain had. not, been considered by
him, that the election papers had not
been fiied by Major Libbey, and that
it had nothing whatever to do witli
the - Issuing of said order. The ad
jutant general may reconcile, if he
can, that statement (if made) with
his subsequent conduct. 7»*-"*;3
Immediately upon the publication of
this order the members of the battery
met, and, taking counsel together, re
solved to appeal respectfully to the
governor of this state, as the com
mander-in-chief of the guard, for re-
lief. In their appeal they have been
seconded by the representative men in
every walk of life ef the city of St.
Paul. In presenting their petition,
your excellency, for some reason best
known to yourself, referred the repre-
sent?* fives cf the battery to Adjt. Gen.
"When the adjutant general was ap
proached with the request that he re-
yoke said order he proposed that Bat
tery A purchase his favor by consent
ing to his attempt to dishonor Lieut.
Allen . and its -Elect Kelly, and
further that the battery submit to
him ■ for hi.* approval, as a condition
precedent to having an unjust order
revoked, the names of the gentlemen
intended thereafter to be elected to
command. The members of Battery
A are all citizens of a free state; the
most of whom, including the captain
elect, born citizens of Minnesota.
-They therefore, individually and as a
body, decline to be a party to any bar-
gain with the adjutant general, or to
surrender the rights given them by the
law, to select their own officers, even
though it procure his favor.
Battery A appeals from these arbi
trary and unjust acts of the adjutant
general to the governor of this state
for that justice, which in the language
of its constitution, every person ought
to obtain "freely, and without denial;
promptly and without delay." •*.?-.-•'
This controversy has ceased to be a
question of individuals. It is a higher
question of principle.
Will Gov. dough hear us, and the
citizens of St. Paul who speak for us,
or will he compel us to submit to this
wrong, awaiting the slow but certain
riahting of all wrongs which comes
with time?
Resolved, That the members of Bat
tery A adopt the foregoing address to
his excellency David M. Clough, gov
ernor of the state of Minnesota, and as
a final and emphatic answer to the
proposition made to our committee by
his adjutant general.
Resolved, That the committee ap
pointed at -a. former meeting and hay-
ing said matter in charge, cause the
foregoing address to be handed to Gov.
Clough, and given to the press of St.
Paul for publication.
Resolved, That we tender our heart-
felt thanks to the citizens of St. Paul
and to all the newspapers for their
generous aid a.nd encouragement.
Resolved. Thai whatever the outcome
of this controversy may be, the mem
bers of Battery A are always at the
service of the Capital City.
Wallace surrendered the chair after
he put the question on the adoption of
the address and resolutions, and, tak
ing the floor, said:
"I would stand by Kelly as long as
any one, and as long as there is any
Chance of saving him. But when this
is no long-, possible lam looking only
to the best interests of the battery.
I am not in favor of antagonizing Adjt.
Gen. Muehlberg, who is the head of
the military forces. The battery has
not yet tri d to comply with, the con
ditions laid down by him for its rein
statement. Soldiers had no right to
draw conclusions by inference. I don't
believe that when the adjutant general
said that Kelly should step aside and
out he meant out of the service. If
the battery is reinstated Kelly will still
be first sergeant as before. Are we as
members of Battery A going to make
a personal fight out of this issue for
3velly? Or are we to rise superior to
personal matters and look to the "best
interests of the battery?"
Then followed a hot discussion which
assumed all manner of shapes, and
which was scarcely in keeping with
parliamentary rules. The demands of
th adjutant general were again read
for the information of the members.
A motion made by Wallace to lay the
resolutions on the table was lost by
one vote, 12 voting to so ay on the
table and 13 against the motion. The
resolutions and address were then car
ried by a reverse of the vote. When
the vote was announced Mr. Wallace
declared that he desired to be relieved
of the position of chairman of the
meetings and his place on the commit
tee, as he was opposed to the course
taken by the battery's majority. He
had no desire to be on hand and preach
the funeral sermon of th** battery, as
he was firmly convinced that as soon
as these documents went to the gov
ernor Battery A would be a dead issue.
After- a short wrangle the resignation
was accepted and Mr. Dwyer was
chosen to fill the vacancy. Then the
old committee appointed to see the
governor on behalf of the battery
unanimously resigned its duties, and a
long drawn out effort was made to
secure a new committee to act in its
place. It looked a good deal as though
the men were afraid to act after the
resolutions had been passed, but fin
ally, and after a supreme effort, the
chairman secured five who were will
in to take the documents to the execu
tive offices. These are Messrs. Zack,
Garvey, Robinson, Drake and Fitzger
ald. A-?r
Efforts were once more made to
have the passage of the resolutions
reconsidered, but they were of no
avail, and the meeting adjourned in
the manner above indicated.
' It seems that at the previous
meeting of the battery, a practical un
derstanding had 'been reached that,
for the sake of harmony, both Sergt.
Kelly and Lieut. Allen should with
draw, and the committee so under
stood it. Pursuant to that under
standing, Lieut. Allen resigned, and
his resignation . was accepted. The
withdrawal of Se-rg'.. Kelly was next
in order,' and the- order reinstating the
battery was expected to follow. Now
Kelly refuses to step out, and matters
are more complicated than ever, and
ft is hardly probable that anything will
be accomplished.

"Lovely Dick" Reed, Frank Smith,

severe punishment.

been stated, was arrested in company
with a Mrs. Mary Smith, alias' Miss

American blush. On the charge of
failure to support his lawful wife Mr.

And Prange Shonld Proceed to
Pick Another Place.
Mr. Scherer, the county superintend-
ent of schools of Blue Earth county,
wrote to Attorney General Childs a
few days ago for an opinion in regard
to an election of a school director that
was held in District 150 of that county
a short time since, and over which a
very nice legal point has been raised.
The attorney general's opinion is given
In full:
George W. Scherer, Esq., County
Superintendent of Schools, Mankato.
Minn.— Dear Sir: You state that at the
last school meeting heldl in School Dis
trict 150 of your county there were
thirty voters present, and at the elec- ;
tion for director fourteen votes -were
cast for one Henry Prange, fifteen for
Henry Weber, and one for Henry W.
The clerk of the meeting kept a regis
ter of the voters present, and his tally
-sheet showed twenty-nine votes. This
would seem to be erroneous, as that
officer admitted the presence of thirty
voters, and that the error was due
to his carelessness. The moderator,
pursuant to such vote, declared Henry
Weber elected director for the unex-
pired t?rm, one year remaining. Not
withstanding this, and against the pro-
test of those who had voted for Mr,
Weber, and, indeed, after the meet*
ing had proceeded to and accomplished
the election of a clerk, another ballot
was had for director, resulting in six
teen votes being cast for the said
Prange and fourteen for the said
In view of the foregoing statement"
of facts, you inquire which, of these
persons was elected director. .
The first ballot clearly resulted in
the election of Mr. Weber. It is evi
dent that all present voted, and no
valid question can arise upon the
statement of facts, that sixteen votes
were actually cast for Mr. Weber.
In view of the fact that that gen-
tleman was one of the two candidates
for the office, presumably the only
person present to whom . the vote
"Henry W." would apply, and fur-'
thermore, well known to most of those
present, - I am unable to reach any
other conclusion than that he was
lawfully elected. It therefore follows
that the second ballot, purporting to
result in the election of Mr. Prange,
was a mere nullity, and should be
disregarded. I am very truly yours,
Attorney General.
Traveling* Men Discuss Shows in
General and B.l«gHng*>« in Par-
A party of traveling men were sitting
in tne lobby of a St. Paul hotel, and
discussing circuses in . general and
Ringling Brothers' World's Greatest
Shows in particular. "For my part,"
said a New York man, "I prefer the
old-time one-ring circus— the kind of
a circus a fellow can sit down quietly
and look at and enjoy. The modern
big circus gives me strabismus."
"Well, what's the matter with going
over to Stillwater tonight and seeing
one of your genuine, old-fashioned one-
ring circuses," remarked a Chicago
•man. "--* :
"What is it— a twenty-five-cent
show?" "Yes, and a very good one at
that." ---V •
"Pshaw! it can't amount to much at
a quarter." The Chicago man laugh
ed. "You've struck, the nail square on
the head," he exclaimed? "No circus
management can afford to give a great
show for a quarter, for the simple rea-
son that in a twenty-five-cent show
there is not sufficient capacity. In put-
ting together an expensive show, the
first thing for the careful circus man
ager to consider is, 'How can I get
back my money on this expenditure?'
There is only one way, and that is to
draw the people and have room enough
to seat them when they come. To
do that it is necessary to have a very
large tent. Suppose you were sitting
at one end of a big hippodrome pavil
—one as long and wide as the tre
mendous tent Ringling Brothers will
erect here for their engagement next
Tuesday — do you think you would en
joy the show if there was only one
ring., and that' one in the center, two
hundred and fifty feet away from you?
Not much. That one ring would be
all right for the people in the reserved
seats, but the people down at your
end and those at the other extreme
end of the tent have to be considered.
And so there is a ring for them—
rings, in fact— one for the middle and
one at each end.
"Ringling Brothers," continued the
Chicago man, "have, however, . intro
duced a clever system in. their perform
ance, and one which I think you will
appreciate, with your peculiar ideas
about the one-ring circus. By a skil
ful arrangement of the programme
they always have the same kind of
an act presented in the ring simul
taneously. As each of these acts are
of about equal merit, there is no need
of a man's eyes roaming all around
the canvas, for by looking at the per
formance in any one ring, he prac
tically sees it all. Whenever a partic
ularly strong feature like the Eddy
family of acrobats, the Landauer
troune or those clever aerial people,
the Dacomas. is nut on, they are giv
en the entire auditorium, so that the
attention of the public can be con
centrated on them.
"Take mv advice." said tho Chicago
man, turning to the New Tork lover
of one-ring circuses, "you go and see
Rlngling Brothers' circus and you will
newer want to see a little circus
again. It's the best circus In the
country, and big as It Is. and numerous
as the acts are. TH guarantee it not
to give you strasbismus."

Excellent Lecture-,
Excellent Lecture} "* *i
About 300 . people congregated at
Market hall last night to listen to
Rev. W. H. Carwiardine, a Methodist
minister of Pullman, 111., talk on the
labor question. Most of the audi
ence was composed of workingmen,
with a slight sprinkling of ladies.
The _ hall would undoubtedly be
crowded were it not for. the fact
that an admission fee was charged!
and workingmen are not in condition
to pay out money to hear a lecture
most of them have heard in sub
stance before. This is not intended
for. a reflection on Mr. Carwardine' s
ability as a speaker, for he certainly
is a fluent talker who says some
good things . and speaks with an
earnestness which indicates that he
feels as he speaks, but so much has
previously been said on the subject
that little remains to be said. 7 s?^ 7';.
Mr. Carwardine is a rather thin,*
i spare man, not above the average
jin height. He has a.n intelligent face
and forehead, and his head is covered
! with a good growth of red hair.
! Samuel Brandt, president of the Re-
I tail Clerks' Local Protective associa
tion, presided, and on the platform
were seated Rev. Dr. Hull, pastor of
the Central M. E. church, and Rev.'
Mr. Fisk, pastor of a Congregational
church outside . the city, both . of.
whom are old friends of Mr. Car-
wardine. ?-.; ;7>
Mr. Brandt introduced the speaker
by saying that although he might
j say some thing's with which all
j might not accord, he could assure
J them that they would be said with
the best intentions and with a view
to benefiting the labor movement.
Mr. Carwardine said in part, read-
ing from manuscript:
"I am glad that about a year ago
I was situated so that 1 could view
from the inside some of the things
in connection with one of the great-
est " industrial upheavals the world!
has ever seen. While a minister,'!
i say that sad is the condition of af
-1 f afire in that church" that interferes.
, with the outspoken opinion of its
clergy on questions of. the kind c*a*
! which I am about to speak. I Bent
a request to a minister of this city
to make an announcement of my
visit here, but he told another mm
ister that when he received it he tore/:
it up. That was charity, , wasn't St? .
That showed intelligence. Why, *T-
have had the pleasant sensation of
being classed as an anarchist. "Do
I look like an anarchist?. I dp.. hot
think there is much indication of an-
archistic tendencies in me unless it'l
is my red hair." .: *7"*7
The' speaker then went on to give a
description of the town of Pullman,
where everything is owned by the
Pullman company but the air, and
where the property, he said, instead
of being taxed by the lot, as other
property in Chicago is taxed, is taxed
by the acre. There is a delightful
library delightful, too grand for
the workingmen. Every one who de-
sires to use it is required to pay $3
a year. There is one church a
beautiful little church and elegant
parsonage adjoining both of which
were built by the company. The
church stood idle for years after it-
was built, because the company
wanted $300 a year rent for it. •
Finally it was cut down to $100 a
year and the Presbyterians took it.
But no pastor has ever been able to
pay $65 a month for the parsonage,
so it has stood idle ever since it was
built. '. 7 ;A.A
The town is built on forty-three
acres of land, while thousands of
idle acres adjoin. The result of this
system of crowding people together
is to destroy privacy, an essential
condition of the home. "If ever a
company stood convicted of hypoc
risy in its pretenses of efforts in the
interest of humanity arid working
'people, that company is the Pullman
company," shouted the speaker. He
then went on to review the causes
of the Pullman strike. They were
the cutting of wages, high rents,:
failure to equalize wages and failure
to look into the fearful conditions
that prevailed, when attention was
directed to them. "The force was
cut down until not more than 900
men were employed;** continued the
speaker. ""When work began to in-
crease and 3,000 men were employed,
the continual cutting of wages ex-
asperated the employes so that they
sent for Debs and his co-workers to
come down and help them to get
justice. Debs went there and I have
heard him myself tell the men not
•to strike— to wait a while.
"Pullman is a peculiar man. He is *
an aristocrat. He is of a very cold i
nature. He has hatred of labor
unions, and when his employes went
to him he warned them to go home .
and let him run things in his own'
way. True, the Pullman company
had lost some money, but the men
knew that €0 per cent of their loss
in wages was on repair work. The
men made a proposition to compro
mise on any ground, but they were
given to understand that If they per-*.
sisted . in their demands they would
be locked out, ; and it was to avoid-
the lock-out that they struck in ad-'
"Vance. *.*- ; .- ..- . - ? -.-$>
"I heheve that while Debs has been i
mistaken in some things, he is a true
man and an honorable 7 citizen. I
say this here and now," in a com
munity in which he has" many en
emies. And I say he ought to have
a chance." 7 '-'7
The speaker took a shot at Cleve- i
land by referring to "our modern
Nero fiddling while Rome was burn-
ing, lost the opportunity of his life,
and called out the army to suppress
the strike." Continuing, he said:
"Out of evil there ought to come
some good, and there has out of
this, for today the question is be
ing discussed all over this country
and all over the , civilized world. -
' The man who strikes does nothing
to be ashamed of. Moses inaugural-
Ed the first strike, and every man
who has ever stood Tip against op
pression and wrong was a striker.
| But the anarchistic element takes
advantage of the excitement to work
i "Today another revolution stares
us in the. face. Changed conditions
within the past thirty years have
brought to the surface problems
that must be solved. The curse of
the worklngman is the dram shop.
■JTake that kindly for what it is
worth. This . is one of the questions
"be solved. There is the 'freedom
of suffrage question, the silver ques
tion and a dozen other ques
tions, but over and above them all is
the labor question. If there is not
freedom of discussion on this' ques
tion between capitalist and laborer
a condition of affairs will result that
will be a thousand times worse than
anything we have seen in the past.
7.1 "When I was born there were only
twenty-eight millionaires in New-
York. I had a chance then to be a
millionaire. Now there are 1,100 mil-
lionaires in New York. I have no
chance of becoming one now. "'* These
fortunes have been made out of
monopoly or the increased value of
real estate. Just think of one man
owning a farm of 90,-000 acres. It is
.wrong; radically wrong. Think of
the effrontery of this man Have-
meyer, who confessed to having
used money to influence legislatures
—Democrats in one' state, Repub
licans in another and Populists in
another— all used as his tools through
the' power of his wealth. It is com
ing to pass thatthis government is
gradually falling under the control
of the multi-millionaires— Pres
ident Cleveland called the 'commun-
ism of pelf.' " AA'a'-'.
Tlie speaker then quoted figures
compiled from the United States cen
sus as to the exceedingly low stand
ard of wages for unskilled labor, the
rate ranging from 40 cents to $1.50
for the various classes, from sew
ing girls to coal miners. The only
reason mechanics' wages were high
er was because of the existence of
trades unions. "God bless the trades
unions with all their mistakes and
errors," he exclaimed. "They are
the safeguard of the country, espe
cially the working people. (Ap
"Pullman represents a class whose
creed is reverence for money and
contempt for men. Money is a good
thing, but it does not give enjoy
ment. It is of trifling value com
pared with good health and robust
appetite. The spirit of reverence
for wealth is seen in the church,
when thousands are spent for flowers,
while the poor sit all around. It is
seen in the church where more is
.spent for the carpets on the floor
than goes to home and foreign mis
sions in a whole year."
The speaker's recital of Burns'
"A Man's a Man for a' That" was
greeted by a storm of applause. '
o Mr. Carwardine next turned his
attention to the question of immi
gration. He disliked the habit of
people when they come to this coun-
try calling themselves English, Irish,
Norwegians, Germans, French, etc.
•It was all right for them to remem
ber, their native lands, but when they
pissed Sandy Hook and Castle Gar
den they should be Americans, and
nothing more. "Immigration that
'brings us men who come to make a
home and get a living honorably is
ail right, and all hail to all the peo
ple it brings us," he went on. "But
the immigration that brings us pau
pers and criminals is all wrong. A
'railroad company out West here
brings to this country hundreds of
Hungarians to" take the places of
men on a strike. Is that right?
Should it be permitted? No; it is
. "The conditions that prevailed at
Pullman were not conditions that
tended to reconcile classes.- There
stood Pullman; here stood his men.
There was no bond of sympathy be
tween them. Such conditions are
wrong." -
The speaker condemned the black-
list in the most unmeasured terms.
A little refined socialism was not to
be feared. It was a good thing. So-
cialism was not to be classed with
anarchy. If Christ were to come on
•earth and inquire why the working-
men do not attend the churches, he
would be answered: "Your mm
isters do not sympathize with me in '
my fight against corporate greed."
Mr. Carwardine added: "I believe |
that the application of the doctrine i
of Jesus Christ as set forth in the '■
golden rule would result in the level-
ing up process necessary to bring
about justice to all. I believe in co-
operation. I believe in profit shar-
ing. If Mr. Pullman had applied a
little of that theory, things would be
all right. I believe it is time for the
government to take control of the
railroads, and the cities to take con-
trol of the street railways, gas and
water franchises, etc. Select good
leaders and stand by your unions
and then seek to bring about by
means of the ballot such remedies
as you desire. All the politicians
want is to get what they can out of
you, and then throw you aside like
a sucked orange. A little more po
litical independence is what is need
led. The grandest results that have
been achieved in this country have
been achieved through political inde
pendence. Esteem your ballot; it
tells a long story of the struggles it
has had, coming down to you
through centuries of trial and blood
. shed."

Xot They, tlie Boys of Company C
Are Quite Sure.
A week or two it was reported that
some of the members of Company C
had been indulging in some fun out
near Fort ' Snelling, and that among
the other serious things that happen-
ed, some of the street lamps in that
vicinity were broken. The blame was
immediately laid at the door of the
boys, and the matter reported to Adjt.
Gen. Muehlberg. The general made a
. thorough investigation of the case,
and now reports that the boys of Com-
pany C are entirely innocent of the
charges, not having been out at the
fort at the time the mischief was done.

The Mail Service Change Because
of No Car for It.
of Xo Car for, It.
Postmaster Castle said yesterday
Postmaster Castle said yesterday
that the proposed changes in the mail
service from Chicago were hung up
temporarily by the refusal of the Mil-
waukee road to furnish a mail car
from La Crosse to St. Paul for the
morning train. There was some ques
tion as to whether the government
could compel the company to furnish
a car under the contract as it exists
without paying extra for it. It would
not require a whole car, as no regu
lar railway mall clerk would be on it,
but just one of the local force to work
the mail in transit after leaving La
Crosse. Therefore * a combined mail
and baggage car would answer. The
postmaster said that it had "been sug
gested by Supt. Barclay, of the rail-
way mall service, that the difficulty
might be gotten around by having the
local man work the mail between Chi
cago and La Crosse, and have it all in
pouches ready to send on from there in
the baggage car as now. The matter
was being considered and something
would probably be done very soon.

afternoon at the home of Mrs. D. C.

cussed plans for the state convention
of woman's suffragists which is to

the same week of the fair to have ad-
vantage of the low rates, this con-
vention will be entirely independent of

pointed a committee to look after the
entertainment of the delegates. The
social that was to have been held Fr*"

Friday evening of next, when fur-

St. Paul Officials View the Kettle
',; Diver Sandstone in Its Native
i Element,
Messrs Gorman, . Quinby, Warren
and Fairehllds, members of the board
of public works, -City Engineer Rund
lett, Assistant City Engineer Wilson,
Bridge Engineer Munster and -Water
Commissioner Stevens returned early
last evening from.- Sandstone, where
they had spent the day inspecting the
Kettle River sandstone quarries. The
St. Paul officials were the guests of the
Minnesota Sands-tone company. A pri
vate car was furnished for the party,
which included, besides the St. Paul
officials named, Chief Engineer Hil
yard, of the Northern Pacific railroad,
the city engineer ot Minneapolis and
other officials of that city.
The visitors saw many sights at the
quarries. They . were especially inter-
ested in watching the stone saw which
.tears its way through the rocKS, and
turns out blocks of all dimensions
suitable for all purposes. The Kettle
River sandstone is largely used for
bridge substructures, but its chief rep-
utation rests upon its peculiar adapta
bility for building purposes. Its pop-
ularity has become £io widespread that
it is being shipped in large quantities
to the. Eastern states, and especially'
to New York state.
Are the Prairie Birds Which the
Sportsmen Are Seeking.
Chickens will be "ripe" next week
and already the exodus for the prairies
is becoming marked in the city.. The
dealers in sporting goods are begin
ning to reap a rich harvest in trade,
and every devotee of Nimrod is fast
getting himself into shape for the
sport of the fall season. The club
house of the St. Paul Gun club is at
present the Mecca of the men who
shoot, and yesterday several members
departed for North Dakota. Dr.
Charles A. Wheaton headed the dele
gation, and he was joined by Dr.
Quinn and Charles Yale. Other mem
' bers 'of the Rod and Gun club will
leave early next week to take a hand
in the sport.' A. H. Pike, of New-
York, who scarcely ever misses a sea
son on the prairies, passed through
the city yesterday with a pack of
.dogs and hunting^ outfit, and many
other Eastern sportsmen are expected
daily. The season ,this year .promises
to be exceptionally .good, as it always
is when the Northwest has a big crop
of small grains, and the birds will be
very fat and toothsome.
