Mr. Lee Says That He Sees Cliancea
Mil. Lee Sny» Tliut He Sees C'linncea
for Improvement In tlie Syn-
' . . ' tern.
Supt. W. E. Lee, of the St. Cloud re-
formatory,, told the Globe last night,
at the Merchants' hotel, that he would
never have become a candidate for
governor unless he had been convinced
that Clough could not be nominated.
"After I made pretty sure," said Mr.
l.cc "that Clough couldn't get nomi
nated, l concluded that 1 stood as good
a chance as anybody else. Let's see,
there's about six of us now, isn't there?
Clough, Clapp, Van Sant, Eustis, Glbbs
and myself. I may not be a Plumed
Knight or a Magnetic- Man, but it
strikes me that I'm getting on as well
as the other fellows so far. I figure \
on my warmest support naturally from
the northern counties. You know my
home's in Long Prairie, and the Sixth
district Is sticking to me pretty well.
Next comes the Seventh district, but I
hear from my friends that the southern
counties are not likely to give me the
cold shoulder. It's a trifle early to lay
out any plan of campaign for myself
as against the other candidates, but
I'm sure for one thing, that I've
learned at St. Cloud something about
the management of state institutions
and I know I've saved the state at
least $10,000 during the eighteen months
I've been in offlce. Then I've lived
longer in the state than any of our
half dozen. I was born in Illinois and
came here, when a young fellow, in
1857. As a miller, farmer and banker
I've had my share of business ex-
perience and you know I served three
terms in the legislature, being speaker
of the last house. I'm a pronounced
protectionist, too. and always have
been. It's a little queer to notice how
some prominent Republicans in this
state are hurrahing for protection just
now who would have jumped out of a
second story window if you'd men-
tioned protection to them two years
"Yes, the Sixth district is for Davis.
decidedly. I think we'll send down a
delegation that, although not instruct-
ed for Davis, will vote for him as long
as he has a show. Next to him our
people are for McKinley. Around
about Duluth. Reed has a good many
friends, but McKinley is the favorite.
There s no doubt of that, not only in
our district, but elsewhere. Well it's
the proper thing. McKlnley's very
name stands for protection all the
country oyer, and protection has a
firmer hold in the United States than
It ever had before. Up here we'd like

the reformatory?"
"Now, then, I'm convinced that sev
eral changes in the system would be
an advantage. For example, I take it
ftm«!i%hab,t^l criminal has isolated
himself from his fellows by his acts.
He is detached from society. The ob-
ject of the reformatory is to reattach
mm. At present we cannot graduate
our treatment of him when at the re-
formatory, and we throw him back too
suddenly upon society. Our scheme
provides rewards and punishment so
that a prisoner can live there in great
comfort or great discomfort according
as he behaves well or badly. But the
changes from one condition to another
are not sufficiently gradual. . Then I
would like to see some plan by which
when the time comes for a prisoner to
be paroled, he could be employed just
outside of the reformatory at good
I wages in the service of the state. A
j check could be kept on him by fre-
j quent roll calls, but he would be under
no guard. He would associate for six
or eight months with his companions
| on terms similar to any workman and
i he would pay all his own expenses.
Thus he would gradually reattach him-
self to society by learning that his in-
dependence followed from depending to
a certain extent on his fellows.
"And, again, I would send to the re-
! formatory most of the prisoners who
;go to the city workhouse. After, say, a
; second offense, or after experts had de-
! cided that the prisoner's life proved
I him a habitual criminal, no matter how
j petty, he should go to the reformatory,
and not to the workhouse, which is
now simply a school to graduate young
j fellows into the reformatory. It's these
i petty criminals who are really habit-
' ual criminals and who are the hardest
Ito reform. We have been looking too
j much at the crime, instead of the crim
inal. Many persons convicted of seri-
j ous crime?, against the person, such as
j murder, highway robbery, and the like,
; have courage, enterprise, industry, de-
: termination, and many other character-
I istics of a valuable citizen. -They don't
; need reforming, though they may need
| punishment. In many cases they would
i never again commit the, same crime.and
j they could be safely turned out upon
I society at. once. a murderer said to me
! once at St. Cloud, 'Well, Mr. Lee, I'm
i no thief,' and his manner of saying it
was a whole lesson in criminology."

Charles A. Mann's Remains Shipped
to It lea, X. Y.
The remains of Charles A. Mann,
who was found dead in bed at the
Windsor hotel Thursday.were shipped
last night to Utica, N. V., the home
of the Mann family. Like himself,
Mr. Mann's father was a lawyer, and
it was in the elder Mann's office at
Utica that the late Judge H. R. Bige-
low, of this city, began the study of
his profession. Mrs. Charles A. Mann
and her son have started from their
home at Washington, D. C, and will
receive the body at Utica, where the
funeral will take place.
.Mr. Mann's first wife was Miss Alice
Patterson, daughter of Rev. Dr. Pat-
terson, one of the most esteemed of
St. Paul's historic clergy, and for many
years rector of St. Paul's Episcopal
church. A sister of Mrs. Mann was
Mrs. Harvey Officer, since deceased.
Mr. Officer is the attorney of 'the St.
Paul Trust company. The children of
the first Mrs. Mann died at an early
age. .y-'y. •','"
Mr. Mann came to this city at the
beginning of -the *Go's, and for years
was engaged here in the practice of his j
profession. After removing to Wash-
ington, on the death of his first wife, j
be still retained large property inter-
ests "in St. Paul. Mr. Mann had schol
arly inclinations, and devoted especial
attention to political economy. His
knowledge of this subject was unusu-
ally accurate and extensive. He was
the author of a published work upon
political economy.

Moral Support.
William Beck, of Anderson, Ind.,
asked the privilege of the floor at the
meeting of the Trades and Labor as-

Paul as the representative of the
American Flint Glass Workers' union,
which numbers 7,500 members, that had
been waging a fight against a certain
pickling establishment in the North-
west, with headquarters in Minneapo
lis, and a branch in St. Paul. During
the past two years the American. Flint
Glass Workers' organization has ex-
pended $12,500 in fighting this company,
and has expended $377,786.58 for strike
benefits. He, as the representative of
the glass workers, asked the Trades as-
sembly to help them in their fight, and
showed that the difference in the wages
of non-union and union labor of the
glass workers in the United States was

George Campbell Accidentally Ren

George Campbell, a young resident
j of St. Paul, was brought to the city
! last evening from Mora, Minn., where
j Feb. 11 he met with an accident which
necessitated the amputation of both
feet and that portion of his left leg
below the knee. Campbell, who is
twenty-four years of age, had been
working in the woods up to the day be-
fore the accident. On that day he
boarded a Great Northern train with
the intention of returning to St. Paul.
j Previous to the starting of the train,
j young Campbell alighted for a mo-
ment to speak to a friend. The train
! started and Campbell attempted to
I board a coach in the middle of the
train. He missed his footing, falling
under the wheels, where both feet and
a portion of his left leg were badly
mangled. The injured members x.ore
amputated and the young man atten
tively cared for until strong enough to
be brought to St. Paul. Doctors Cow
i an and Butler, of Mora, accompanied
j Campbell to this city. The ambulance
I from the city hospital met the train at
| the union depot at 6:30 last evening
and conveyed Campbell to the home
of his sister, Mrs. Allen Boyd, 404

Chances .With a Caution Born
of Impending Danger.
The symptoms of hydrophobia mani
fested by ex-Patrolman Peter Feeley,
j and which necessitated his removal
I to the city hospital Thursday evening,
; yesterday developed into an unmistak
| able case of the dread rabies. The
j diagnosis of Feeley's case is no longer
i a question of doubt, nor is he suffering
! from lyssaphobia, which is the med
|. leal phrase for an exaggerated fear in
| curred by a person who has been bit
! ten by an animal. Peter Feeley is mad,
and his probable death from the at-
tendant agonies of hydrophobia is re-
garded as but a question of a few
days. Feeley was visited by his phy
sicians, Drs. E. H. Whitcomb and Ar
thur Sweeney, at 5 o'clock last even-
ing. After an examination, Dr. Sweeney
stated that he no longer had any hes
itancy in pronouncing Feeley's a gen-
vine case of hydrophobia. When first
taken to the hosDital there was ai
question that the man had worked him-
self into a state of nervous excitement
bordering upon insanity, and, while suf
fering horrible agony, only imagined
himself to be a victim cf rabies. Cer-
tain symptoms were absent which ren
dered an absolute and definite diagnosis
of the case impossible. These symp- |
toms yesterday made their appearance,
and confirmed what the physicians had
hoped against, that the unfortunate
patient was in reality in the throes of
When taken to the hospital Feeley
was placed in a private room, and a
constant- guard kept over him. All!
night long he was attacked by re-
curring spasms, and was at times un-
controllable. As when first attacked
by symptoms of the disease, the bare
sight of water threw Feeley into con-
vulsions, and he was unable to eat or
drink. During his rational moments
the man lay upon his bed moaning
piteously. Then, seized with a fit of
hysteria, he would jump from the couch
and pace the floor in an excited man-
ner. Early yesterday morning Feeley
seemed to quiet down somewhat, and
obtained a little rest. The horrible
realization of his condition, however,
never left him. While lying down he
perked about uneasily, and at times
would suddenly start up, only to drop
back to his pillow trembling with fear.
When Dr. Sweeney visited Feeley
yesterday morning he found the patient
in practically the same condition of the
previous nhrjit. At that time no new
symptoms Had; made their appearance.
Following the doctor's, visit Feeley
again began manifesting signs of fren
zy. Throughout the entire day his ac-
tions were those of a mad man. Hys
teria seized him at intervals and several
physicians, including Dr. Ancker, were
of the opinion that he had become in-
sane through an exaggerated fear of
his condition. The pain in Feeley's
arm and in the region of the heart in-
creased during the afternoon, and
spasms in his throat became more fre- j
quent. So utterly terror-stricken had
the sick man become that it was diffi- '■
cult to distinguish by his actions when
he was raving or when simply agoniz-
ed through fear. Part of the time was
spent by the patient crouching in the
corner of his room, and part in tossing
wildly about upon the bed.
When Drs. Sweeney and Whitcomb
examined the man upon their later
visit, there was 'no longer a question in
their minds regarding his condition, and
as previously stated. Dr. Sweeney an-
nounced it as his opinion that Feeley
was suffering from, a- well-defined case
of rabies. ri . • v
In speaking of Feeley's case yester-
day. Dr. Whitc&mb Stated that, not-
withstanding the popular opinion to the
contrary, the present time of year was
the most favorable to the development
of hydrophobia. 'The true origin of hy
drophobia has nfever been definitely de-
termined, but that it is peculiarly a
disease of animals of the canine and
feline species is the decision of all mcd-
ical authorities.. "The disease," said
Dr. Whitcomb, in the "bourse of his con-
versation, "in a particular animal is
due to a specific virus contained in the
saliva. By means of a bite or scratch
there from an animal afflicted with
rabies, a human being or other animal
falls a victim to the disease. The
germs of hydrophobia may lie dormant
in a dog for months, and finally become
developed to such an extent as to ren
der the animal mad. Under circum-
stances tending to excite or arouse the
dog. hydrophobia is liable to make its
As a means, of preventing the spread
of hydrophobia. Dr. Whitcomb is of
the opinion that, at this time of year
in particular, all female dogs should
be kept in confinement.
In the opinion of Dr. Whitcomb. it is
cruel; to muzzle dogs generally. He
does not consider it necessary or prac
tical. 'He is firm in, the belief that if
the females are shut up a great deal
of the danger from hydrophobia will
be obviated.
Asked . late last evening how long
Feeley was likely- to survive. Dr.
Sweeney remarked that it would be
purely an indulgence in prophecy to
Congressman Kiefer Intercedes for
"Bill" Qninn.
Congressman KiefeY has just intro
duced a bill granting to William L.
Quinn, of this ' city,*l a pension of $25
per month. This action was taken at
the request of numerous friends of
Mr. Quinn, wh6 testified to the valu-
able services rendef-td by the latter
as a guide to the forces commanded
by the late Gen. Sibley during the
Indian war of 1862. '•'
"When Sibley's troops started west,"
said a survivor] of tbe war last even-
ing, "they expected tb find Little Crow
in command of- the main body of the
Indians whom "Gen. 'Sibley was pursu-
ing. But with "Some idea of foolhardy
bravery, such afi theTlndians are often
afflicted with, \t Little Crow suddenly
concluded to Leave main band,
swing back, and - tackle the whites
again around about Glencoe." The hap
. py thought had very unhappy, results.
The whites swooped down upon the
swoopers, killed Little Crow and came
near capturing his son. ..Bill Quinn
was in, command -of Sibley's scouts,
and it was Bill . that commanded the
party which discovered young Little
Crow near. Devil's Lake, in what's now
North Dakota. Young . Crow had been
wandering for days alone on the prair
ies, and he was. in a . frightful state
even for an Indian. • He drew his gun
on the guides, and came near being
I ventilated with bullets before he was
taken.- He was brought down to Fort
Snelling and died some time after the
war. ' yy.
- "Hill's father, Peter Quinn, was also
'a scout in the same war. He was
accompanying a, force of about seven-
ty-five men who were fired on sud
denly while crossing the Yellow Mcd-
icine river. The Indians had ambushed
along the banks. Except, perhaps,
two or three men, every one on the
ferry was shot down in cold blood,
including Bill's father. After the war
Bill was a guide in the service of the
regular army up to about 1878. He's
living here now on the West side, and
is at least seventy years old. All the
fellows who served as guides under
Bill have been receiving pensions for
years. Col. Kiefer was given a letter
from Gov. Ramsey highly commend-
ing Bill, while Gen. Sibley had left a
written testimonial, which was sent on
to Washington." *y:r" >;*.

Life Studies.
The quarterly meeting of county W.
C. T. unions was held at Conover hall
yesterday afternoon. Mrs. W. R. Man-
digo, the county president, presided.
The unions represented were Somer-
set, Willard and Dayton's Bluff. The
temperance work in the public schools
was taken up, and it was decided not
to furnish the schools with any more
cards bearing copies of the law as re-
lating to the teaching of temperance
work in the schools. Copies may be
bought by the schools needing them.
Mrs. Nicholas moved that Supt. Gil-
bert be notified to this effect, and

Col. T. E. Byrnes, sergeant-at-arms
of the national Republican committee,
will go to St. Louis next week. While
there he will make definite arrange-
ments for his force of assistants.
He is flooded with applications from
all over the country from men who
want to be assistants, and keeps a
stenographer busy answering them.
Mr. Byrnes informed a reporter of the
Globe that the press arrangements

weeklies and monthlies who will be ac

Byrnes, are for a larger general at-

a sure sign of awakened public inter-
est. He anticipates a long convention,
lasting probably over Sunday. This
