It Will Meet in St. Pnnl March 25, According: to a Decision Made Yesterday. Knute , Nelson has, spoken. Senator Knute Nelson has spoken. He has not said anything surprising,. however, except to those of the com-* mittee of 100 in Minneapolis, who were recently contemplating -the* prospective defeat of Clough, with the satisfaction of a full duty '-. faithfully . ■ performed. The committee had about dropped out of sight until Mr. Nelson again called attention to the fact" that Mr.-* Clough was being opposed, „ and .sent out a neatly type-written circular on paper bearing the mark of the senate. While the circular . was confidential, % the Globe did not get one, 'and conse quently violates no* confidence in print ing it: *: :7 . ."-:.: .■;■.■.;-:-'/.-'.'".':-.'■ 77 : United States Senate, Washington, D. C, Feb. 18, 1896.— Gen. Washburn and the Min neapolis Journal have lost no opportunity to attack and Insult me since my election to the senate. T| They are now engaged in , a warfare against Gov. Clough, not so much because he is not qualified or has not made a good gov ernor as to punish him for helping to elect me.to the senate, and thereby securing his own promotion. Their ' campaign "against 7 Clough Is carried oh.with the twofold purpose of defeating him and humiliating me. •' From week 'to week I am made the subject of insult and caricature, either in the Journal, . or, If more than unusually gross. in Its Democratic issue— Times. I am here working hard, early and late, trying to serve and represent our state creditably and to the best of my ability. Under these circumstances, it is hard and unfair to be subject to such Insults and attacks. In view -of these facts, I hope that you and other friends will not aid those who are conducting such warfare against Gov. Clough and myself, but will see that Clough Is sustained and that I have fair play. Please consider this as personal and confi dential. Shall be pleased to hear from you. Yours truly, —Knute Nelson. The charmng naivete with which Senator Nelson imparts to his friends what they all suspected before, that he is friendly to Mr. .Clough,- adds a sweet bit of color to a campaign that has, up to this time,- been exceedingly unromantic, and even tinged with a suggestion of carnage. Mr. Nelson brings the contest in from the bloody battlefield for a time to weave its sinu ous course through the channels of dip lomatic intercourse, while David and Tarns can gather new munitions, and smooth the nicks from their well tried sabers. 77c:. ..•«--; -- .... - Knute Nelson, the hitherto unbeaten, the Robert Fitzsimmons of Minnesota politics, so to speak, has again shown the fine Italian hand which has saved him from drowning only to be hanged — in effigy — his delicate allusion to the cruelty of . the assaults upon him will no doubt warm the hearts of the populace to him, so that five years from now he will be secure in his sen atorial toga, even as it were glued to his collar bone. - * * * The executive committee of the State The executive committee of the State League of Republican Clubs met at 3 o'clock yesterday^ afternoon at the Union League • rooms, Minneapolis,- to fix the date of the biennial conven tion of the league. John Goodnow pre sided, and Fred C. Stevens acted as secretary. Chairman Goodnow called on Commit teeman D. B. Lewis, of Ramsey county, for an expression as to the most con venient date .for. .thys- convention. Mr. Lewis believed that the convention should be held on March 25, the day after the Rejpoblica-n state -convention, to be held in Minneapolis. It would save the country members two trips to the cities, and if held at that time it would not interfere with the farm work in the country districts. It was the most convenient date for all con cerned. ' V .7 . : ". y ■,-'*' ' T The question was put to a vote, and the committee decided unanimously to hold the convention Wednesday, March 25, the day after the state convention, at the Auditorium building, St. Paul. Mr. Lewis said in behalf of St. Paul that the city would - gladly - entertain the delegates, and take care of them Tuesday night following' the state con vention in Minneapolis. The country members, he said, would be given pref erence in having their interests looked after flrst, Minneapolitans would get second best attention, and the St. Paul delegates would do the best they could. Mr. Lewis' suggestions were adopted. A committee on arrangements, con sisting of.D. B. Lewis, H. F. Barker, Ed Converse, and the chairman and secretary, ex-officio, was appointed. The committee will * look * after * all the necessary arrangements incident to the convention. Chairman Goodnow was .appointed a committee of one on transportation. None of the committeemen were in clined to indulge in gossip as to the identity of the" officers" who will prob ably be elected at the convention. They said that no canvassing had as yet been done, and there was no ■ -telling who would be elected. The members of the committee pres ent were John Goodnow, F. C. Stevens, Tarns Bixby, 7C. S. Converse, Becker county; Dan Shell,: Nobles; D. B. Lewis, Ramsey; Secretary Harris Richardson, of the state central committee; H. F. Barker, Isanti; Dan Hopkins, Waton wan; George Summerville, Brown; Dr. H. P. Diesson, Carver; S. L. Trussell, Hennepin; Bouck, Morrison; Canfield, Luverne; Rich, Lyons; 7J. M. Crafts, Dakota; N. K. White, Douglass. Let ters from a number of absentees, giv ing reasons for their non-appearance, were received. '.'".*' '..■''■'. POLICE COURT NEWS. Arthur Leach Bound Over to the Grand Jury. ...

At yesterday's meeting of the joint city hall and court house committee Roman Huspek, Adam Nachtscheim and Charles Johnson, three of the em ployes recently discharged, were reinstated, and Julius Hanson, J.

This is in accordance with the report of the committee to which was re- ferred at the previous meeting the matter of the reinstatement of Huspek,' Nachtscheim and Johnson. When the report was read Mr. Arosin was not at all satisfied with it, and he moved that it be referred back to the com- mittee, but the motion was lost Wright voting with the Democrats^ against it. A motion to adopt the re- port was then put and carried by the same vote, 4 to 2, Milham being absent. Mr. Arosin then submitted for the consideration of the committee a num ber of rules and regulations for the government of the employes. One is that they be required to wear uniform caps, and that the elevator men wear dark blue uniforms. Another provides that the custodian keep loafers out of the corridors and off the walks and railings of the building.

It Will Probably Be Removed Within a Week. Mayor Smith has decided to remove Detective Horan from the force. Since his recent encounter with Dick Moore, Horan has not appeared before the mayor. In answer to a request to do so, the detective excused himself on the ground that he was not in a condi tion to visit the mayor's office. But the mayor made up his mind that he was justified in taking action in this case, and decided to remove the of- ficer "for the good of the service." Ac- cordingly the mayor will notify the board of aldermen and assembly next week of his action in removing Horan, as both bodies must concur in the re- moval of any member of the police force in order to make it effective. The mayor will accompany his an nouncement of the removal with the appointment of acting or detailed De tective Henry Meyerding. In place of Mr. Meyerding, who was a patrolman detailed for detective duty, the mayor will appoint as patrolman a resident of the West side, named Martin Knettel. Mr. Knettel will per form the duties of a patrolman. 91G.00 to Alaska.

Lawson, of Battery A, First battalion artillery ,">N. G. S. M., have both been dishonorably discharged from the service of the state, Sullivan for disregarding 'the order of a court martial, and Lawson for plain deser- | tion. This order was' announced at the regular drill of the battery last night, and, while it excited no unusual com ment among members of the company, by whom it was rather expected, it marks another step toward the raising of the standard of the battery in mili- j tary affairs. *"•-:' It will be recalled that at a court I martial held in November Privates Sullivan, Peters ■ and Wingard were reprimanded for non-attendance at drill and ordered to either attend thereafter or furnish adequate excuse. On in vestigation, it was found that Peters and Wingard. on account of the na ture of their employment, could not attend, ■ and they : were . given honor able discharges for the good of the service. Sullivan was given a furlough, after which he was ordered to attend drill. He failed to present himself, however, and, after repeated breaches, has been dishonorably discharged from the battery by the adjutant general. Capt. Appleby ; has . thus, without prejudice, clearly refuted the charge, made by an evening , paper, j that he recommended the discharge of two men who were humble workmen and retained Sullivan for political reasons, owing to a pull .which the latter's father is supposed to- have. Capt. Appleby says he is determined to improve "the standing and feeling in the battery by all fair means, and that no implication of partiality on account of politics or anything else can be justly made against him or any officer of the battery. YY ~ Battery orders issued last night pro vide for the discharge from service of Privates A. C. Fiddes and G. Zim merman " on account of their removal from the station, and the discharge of Sergeant A. iC. Warden - owing to his inability to, attend drill. The exam ination for. promotion to the position of sergeant resulted in the selection of Corporal Ed Miller, , whose percent age was 90%, and an order to that ef fect will be issued ■■ next week. Order No. 3, promulgated last night, pro vides for the appointment of Trump eter Rudolph Mi Groh, of Battery A, to the position of chief trumpeter of the entire battalion. Groh is the artil leryman to whom was presented, at the patriotic meeting held last Friday, the ten-year-service medal.
