Mr. Hanley, of Connecticut, and Mr. Aldrich, of Rhode Island, are rolling up little presidential booms in snow. They are not dangerous, however, as they will melt before election. I ran as tailboard to your cart, Mr. Harrison, in 1888, and "shelled out" with a regularity that was painful. It would be becoming in you now to either run as tailboard or get off the track. — P.

D., Nov. 15.— sensa tion occurred in Moorhead thi* af ts-r --noon, the participants in which were Mayor Lewis and Chief of Police Sul livan. It seems that the saloonkeep ers have been taking their own time and have evinced no desire to pay their license, there being some six or seven up to a late hour yesterday who had not paid. The mayor ordered the chief to close them up, which he proceeded to do. Babe Daubuer, who is the weathiest saloonkeeper in the city, -refused to pay his, which amounted to $300. The chief, who is a pretty good friend of Daubuer, came back to the mayor and told him that Daubuer would not close up. The mayor became indignant, and told the chief to close the place up. The chief refused to do this, and the mayor told him that he might consider his services at an end. At this remark Sullivan grabbed the mayor by the neck and began to choke him.' They were finally parted, but not until each was so badly done up that they had to be carried home. ABBIE AGAIN' -WINS. Judge Mornn Refuses to Remove Her Xew Guardian.

POSSIBLY WHEN PRESENT CON TRACT EXPIRES OTHER COMPANIES , WILL BE IX THE FIELD. Some History About the Struggle for Existence of a Private -', Corporation. On the Ist day of next April the contract at present existing between the city of St. Paul and the St. Paul Gas Light company will expire by ' limitation. The contract covers elec tric lighting in streets and city build ings, as well as the gas lamps, which cost the city $33 per lamp per year, counting in the interest on cost of posts, which are owned by the com pany. When the date of expiration of this contract has arrived there is every likelihood that St. Paul will have what it has never had" before, competition in public lighting. This competition may not extend to the inauguration of a new gas plant; but there will, it seems, scarcely be need for that. : Officers of the pres ent company admit, in effect, that they do not hope to ever again se cure a contract at. the figures now being paid. • In fact, they have made up their minds minds that they will be compelled to take much less, if they secure a contract at all. So that cheaper gas is assured, at least to the city. - . ./A For several years past has been said of St. Paul that it is far , be hind all other i American cities of metropolitan proportions* in the mat ter of street lighting. Not only have the lamps been widely scattered, but the circle of light from any given lamp has scarcely served to dispel the gloom in." its own immediate lo cality. Some of the streets have been so dark and forbidding after nightfall as to draw forth harsh criticisms from citizens and visitors alike. It seems to be tacitly agreed now that the time has come for de cided improvement in the system of lighting public streets and buildings. . The step taken by the council when Seventh street was illuminated by substituting arc lights for gas has had the effect of opening the. 'eyes of St. Paul people. Of a sudden they have realized that it Is not only an, easy, but an economical step from semi-darkness to brilliant light When the present plans of the city fathers shall have been realized, with an open field for all- bona fide competitors who care to • enter,".; all of the business streets— north to Uni versity avenue, east to Broadway, west to Seven Corners, and south to the river will be lighted by the.arc. system. ."" Speaking yesterday with an expert In . the science of electric lighting a Globe reporter was informed that it will probably require 200 arc lights to illuminate the district within the bounds named. These could be run all night the year round, this gentleman said, for not to exceed $10 per light per month, or $120 per year for each arc light. ■''".' *-!<#, The question was asked, "Supposing the ] council should advertise for bids . to be opened the latter end of January ' or.first of February, and the contract, should be awarded • to some company not now in the field, could a plant be put in shape to light the- city immedi ately on the expiration of the present contract?" ' • •_.? "Yes, sir, I think it could. While It' would be a very difficult matter to build or establish a new gas-producing plant, it would be comparatively easy! for responsible parties to build, equip and run an electric light plant There are numerous buildings in St. Paul, available as the home of such a plant, 1 and" while the building was being put in shape the poles could be erected and wires strung.ready to connect with the dynamos In short order." . -• ;* "To what amount, In your opinion, could the present cost of lighting the city be reduced?" - A-T,-; "To the amount of $50,000 a year, at least, possibly more. And, outside the matter of cost, the arc lights could be kept going all night, from dark to day light. The lights should not cost the city to exceed $10 each per month, In an open competition among bidders." "Has there been any competition In the matter of furnishing lights In St. Paul heretofore?" -:■'-;. .7: . : ; "Practically none. Some time ago, when Smith & Taylor began selling lights to parties who had been patron izing the old company, a row enslued, which did not get into the papers. It was hot while it continued, however; and despite the most strenuous effort to block their work the firm named succeeded in their efforts to get a foot hold in the . field. I understand .-. the Pioneer Press has completely turned tall on the stand its owners and man agers took at that time, but this change of front is easily accounted for, now that certain stockholders in the St. Paul Ga3 Light company have disposed of their holdings." . . . '• "Would an advertisement for bids for electric lighting meet with response from men able to make good any prop osition they might submit?" "It undoubtedly would. The situa tion in St. Paul up to the present time has been such that no one cared to en ter Into what would probably have been I a losing fight, even if that fat contract had not. stood in the way. But with the contract about to expire, and a dis position on the part of the council to, discard poor and costly gas for 'good.' and cheap electric lights, there' is en couragement for responsible bidders to 1 , enter the field. Competition will not In jure anyone not concerned In sustaining) the. present monopoly, but .will benefit the public most signally, and it : , will benefit the city by raising from it .the odium of being the worst lighted city in America.'- No firm will care to enter, into a losing contract, but tit the figures named,-- or thereabouts,"^ some 'money; can be made on a fairly drawn con- tract" 7, '- ;./ .

Powers Are Ready to Make Their Naval Demonstration. LONDON, Nov. 16.— Vienna cor respondent of the Daily News says a Constantinople dispatch received there reports that the ambassadors will, j on Saturday, give notice to the sultan of their intention to arrange for a joint naval demonstration. (A disptach to the News from Con stantinople says the sultan is engaged "in. examining every resort of ; the Ar menians in the capital, for the purpose of arresting and shipping all of the "unemployed Armenians into Asia Min or. The measure is regarded as a cruel one, even admitting, that: they reach their destination. j The ;■ correspondent 'also says it is impossible to ascertain the truth of rumors about the joint oc cupation .of various portions . - of § the Turkish empire. ■ ':'■' -' . .

They also burned the village of Kurbel, and one Moham medan was burned alive. Eighteen Mussulmans of both sexes were killed and fifteen wounded by the rioters at Tchoukourhissar, and the town totally destroyed. The ? sultan has sent fresh peremptory instructions to the valis of the different districts where the dis orders have occurred, | as well as to the military commanders, telling them that they must promptly restore order by the just and equitable treatment of both Christians and Mohammedans. , The ministers were in session almost the entire day Thursday. POPE FAILING FAST. His Death at Any Time Wonld Not Be Surprising. CLEVELAND, 0., Nov. 15.— Rev. Joseph M. Koudetka, of this city, has just returned from a visit to Rome. -. In regard to the pope's health he said: "I was shocked to find how he is broken in health. He had to be car ried into the room in a chair, for he could not walk, and his form and face are much emaciated. His mind and sight are as vigorous as ever, however. Of course It Is Impossible to, tell how long he may yet live, but I confess I should not be surprised to hear of his death at any time." A -*•*">= TANES ON TEN MILLION.

A" few days previous to the opening several grand parades of the different carni val clube of the city and vicinity will itake place upon the streets, and to the clubs presenting the best appearance and. having the largest number of men in the parade an ap propriate prize will be given. These two important features of the coming carnival were definitely settled at a meeting of the officers and "board of directors of the asso ciation held in the Commercial club rooms yesterday afternoon. In ad dition to this, many other matters of more or less- Importance were dis cussed and a decision reached upon some of them. A noticeable thing at the meeting was the great enthu siasm shown by ' the members, and ■their confidence in ithe success of- the enterprise The meeting was called to order at 4:30 o'clock by President J. J. Parker. A communication to the association from President Parker was then read which stated that, owing to business obligations, he would be obliged to be away from St. Paul during the greater part of the months of Janu ary and February, and that he there fore felt lit lhis duty to offer his resig nation of the office of president of the association. The resignation was ac cepted, and Dr. C. E. Bean was unanimously chosen to fill the va cancy. He took the chair and thanked the association for the hon or. He said that, while he realized the fact that they were entering upon a great undertaking, and that .It would take much hard labor, he had confidence in the members, and felt sure that the carnival would be made the greatest success of anything ever undertaken, of a similar nature, in St. Paul. A communication from Paul Martin, of Milwaukee, was read. It stated that if an invitation were sent to the ! people^ of that city they would attend in great numbers, and that the carni val was being talked of there consid erably. -. '7*77": . A vote of thanks was then tendered | to ex-President Parker for the good j | work he had already dene. : Maj. Wilkinson, U. S. A., was called i upon, and said that he stood ready to ! make suggestions regarding the carni- : val, and would devote as much time as \ possible working for it. He said he : had been looking over. the city for a i location, and believed that one of the , Islands in the river would do better than Capitol hill. He also stated that j two agents from the Devil's Lake In- ; dian reservation were in the city, arid ' that it might be a good plan to see : them and try to make arrangements j to bring 100 of the red-skins down to I 1 participate in the exercises. This sug- ! gestion was placed in the shape of a . motion, and tVlaj. Wilkinson was ap- j pointed to visit the agents and report , the result at the next meeting. These Indians have a band, and this will ; doubtless be brought down with the others if engaged. Many of the mem bers were very, enthusiastic over this i feature and it will doubtless be placed ' on the programme. They will assist j in storming the stockade, and in vari- ' ous other ways prove a unique and at- , tractive feature. ; - . A number of suggestions were made as to other novel features of entertain ment One of them was a public wed ding, which will be conducted similar ; to. that which was a feature at the ice palace. The committee on pro- gramme Is also investigating the ad visability cf; having a football game played upon snow. This feature will doubtless be added to. thd programme and a prize of s'ufHcient value to stim ulate football enthusiasm will be of fered for the' winning eleven. ; . :-7 The programme committee reported PRICE TWO CENTS- ' ,SvsFSS.4_-i.

This makes j the total membership of the committee , twenty-one. = Gen. Brooks was then called upon. I He said that he thought the carnival I a capital enterprise and congratulated the people of St Paul upon undertak- I ing the task of giving it. It was, in deed, creditable to them to do so; and , while it would take a vast amount of I labor/he felt sure It would be a sue ! cess. A motion was moved and car . ried that hereafter fifteen be consid ered the number for a quorum at all meetings of the board of directors. There will be a meeting tomorrow af ternoon at 5 o'clock in the Commercial club rooms of the officers and directors of the association. The officers of the various carnival clubs will be present and members are invited to come. The matter of securing uniforms for the clubs will then be decided, and some decisions relative to the programme will also be made. The location will be considered, and Maj. Wilkinson will report the result of his interview with the Indian agents. WHY HE RESIGNED. A A.-77 ' In explanation of his resignation of , the presidency of the Carnival assocla- I . tion, Assemblyman J. J.

WOMAVS PROPER SPHERE. | Rabbi Hens Says That I* as an Ed ucator. I neater. Rabbi Hess delivered a lecture at ; Mount Zion synagogue last night upon 1 the subj.ct, "Woman's Proper Sphere." ; The lecturer took the position that i woman is in her proper place only as ; an educator, but that, he said, was a 1 very broad field and a noble one. He said that by reading history she is ! found at different spheres because she I has been deemed man's inferior, and : only in modern times has it been that her proper place has been recognized. At the women's convention held at Washington. D. C, a few years ago s_e admirably demonstrated her many merits, and convinced the world that while her field was different from that of man's, it was not lower or more . limited. "I believe," said the speaker, I "that we should encourage women en s'tering our public schools as teachers. j The make-up is such that they are j well qualified to fill such positions. By it she loses nothing of her womanly modesty, virtue and tenderness, and acquires courage and persistence. In the home also can she exert a power ful influence on the destiny of the world." - ' * "Rabbi Hess will deliver another lecture next Friday night which will probably be along . the same line of thought. . ~ .No Prussians Wanted. ,7 NEW YORK, Nov. .15.— Many life In surance officials from different states were at the Fifth Avenue hotel today, to discuss .the . advisability of taking measures- to exclude Prussian Insur ance companies from doing business in this country. .

Court physicians in attendance at the accouchment report the child to be a handsome girl, and they state that the mother's health is quite sat isfactory. Services connected with -__c berth of the infant were held in accordance with the rites of the orth odox Greek church. The baby has been named Olga. ALIX OF HESSE. The czarina (Grand Duchess Alex andria Feodorovna) was born at Darmstadt, Hesse, June 6, 1872. She was the Princess Alix Victoria Louise Beatrice of Hesse, and was married to Czar Nicholas 11. on Nov. 26, 1594. In accordance with the laws of Rus sia, and by manifesto issued by Czar Nicholas, on the 21st day of October (old style), 1894, she was re-named Alexandre Feodorovna, and received the title of grand duchess and im perial highness. Princess Alix was the daughter of Grand Duke Louis IV. of Hesse and of Alice, princess of Great Britain and Ireland, third child and second daughter of Queen Victoria. Her brother is the present Grand Duke of Hesse; her sister. Irene is the wife of Prince Henry of Prussia; another sister, Princess Eliz abeth, Is the wife of Grand Duke Sergius of Russia, and her oldest sister is the wife of Prince Louis of Battenburg. When Princess Alix was but twelve yt.-rs of age, and while in attendance at the wedding of her sister Elizabeth, she met Nicholas, then grand duke, who was in his six teenth year. The children. became at tached to each other, but the czar evitch's affection for the princess was diverted for some time. , Six years later her father made a visit to the -Russian 7. - court,.- .accompanied by Princess Alix, and her --presence in the Russian capital was the means of- renewing 'their liking for " each other, but as the princess was then an ardent Lutheran, the question of having to become a member of the orthodox Greek church had to be considered. HURRIED WEDDING. Owing to the ill health and subse quent death of the czar. Alexander 111., the marriage of P rmcess Alix and Nicholas was hastened. Concessions, such as never before -ere secured in embracing the orthodox faith, were obtained from the holy" synod. The princess was not required to declare her former religion to be accursed, nor that her conversion was due to the conviction that the truth lies not with her own, but with the Russian church. The holy synod was satisfied With the simple declaration that the princess joined the Greek church in order to ba of the same religion as her husband. The czarina has artistic tastes, loves music and is fond of outdoor sports. She is of a sweet disposition, sympa thetic and kind, and has made many friends. It was thought that sha would exercise a strong influence over the czar, and this was encouraged by the Issuance of a ukase by the czar on the subject of establishing a central council of administration for work houses and reformatories, which was designed to provide the poor with hen- I orable means of employment, In which' the czarina proposes to. rake the insti tution under her immediate patronage. It is said that her majesty drew up tha statutes in question herself. - — mitm - COLD AND PENNILESS. Waller Sends a Pleading Letter: From France. WASHINGTON, Nov. 15__J*e fam ily of ex-consul John I.
