Journeymen Not Satisfied With
Their Present Treatment.
The journeymen plumbers will hold a
special session at Ataembly balls this evening
lor tbe purpose of discussing the wage ques
tion, ami will also take action on the present
hour system, which is creating considerable
dissausiaotion among the members of tbe
Union. As now construed by the master
plumbers, if they send men to work on a cer
tain job at 8 o'clock in the morning and it
only takes one or two hours to complete it,
there being nothing else to do until after
noon, they recompense them only for the time
actually put in. The plumbers are supposed
to work from 8 to li and from 1 to 5, and
they are tired of the attitude which the
master plumbers have chosen to take In the
matter, and will no doubt insist at tonight's
meeting on being allowed a half-day's pay,
for work done between the four hours' time
to complete it. The apprentice system will
also come up, and as the plumbers are of the
opinion that there are too many boys in the
business already, the prospects are that they
•will endeavor to regulate the number for the
next few years to come. In Chicago, Louis
ville and other large cities boys under sixteen
years of age and without a good common
school education are not eligible as plumbers',
gas or steam fitters' helpers. All apprentices
have to serve five years at the trade, and
none are allowed to do work outside the shop
until they have put in four years' time. At
the end of five years they are allowed to do
Journeymen's work. From remarks dropped
Tuesday evening the apprentice system in
thiß city is becoming a serious menace to
the Journeymen plumbers, and some action
will no doubt be taken this evening to re
strict the evil? Delegates will be selected at
tonight's session to attend the convention of
the state federation at Minneapolis on the
I.4th of next month.
The coopers have secured the adoption of a
new scale which gives them an increase in
wages from $2, the old rate, to $2.25 per day.
With the exception of the St. Paul Barrel
company, which manufactures an entirely dif
ferent line of goods, all shops in the city
have signed the scale, which went into effect
May 1, and will expire April 30, 1897. Ev
ery union cooper in the city is employed at
the present time, and the prospects for con
tinuous work are better than for years.
The Allied Printing Trades Council will hold
its quarterly meeting at Assembly halls this
evening. Important business will come up for
discussion, and a full attendance is desired.
A meeting of the bindery girls of the
city will take place at Assembly halls to
morrow night. A reorganization of the bind
ery women's union is contemplated, and will
probably be consummated at this meeting.
There is a strong union of this branch of
the trade In Minneapolis, and no good rea
son can be advanced why there should not
be here. The objects of this auxiliary to the
bookbinders' union are to create greater so
ciability among the members, the forma
tion of sick benefit and burial funds, and for
the general welfare of those connected with
The strike committee of the clgarmakers'
union met Monday evening. Progress was
reported in the fight against a St Paul
manufacturer of cigars, and the committee ad
journed to meet again, subject to the call of
the chairman.
Captured at La Crosse.
Andrew Rice, formerly in the employ of
the Northwestern Supply company, was ar
rested yesterday at La Crosse, Wis., on a
telegram from this city. The warrant for
the arrest of Rice was sworn out by Charles
A. Bettingen, the treasurer of the company,
and charges him with the embezzlement of
$125. The prisoner refused to return to St
Paul without extradition proceedings.

The Work: of the Subcommittee to
Be Submitted to tbe Board
Next Monday a very important meeting of
the school board will be held. At that time
the subcommittee which has been making
up the schedule of salaries and list of teach
ers will report. The Gl ob c is safe in saying
that in many respects this eagerly looked-for
report will be a disappointment—at least to
the people who have been reckoning on rad
ical cuts in salaries and wholesale decapita
tion of principals and teachers.
In taking up the work assigned it the sub
committee has kept foremost in mind the
necessity for maintaining unimpaired ln the
slightest degree the present high standard of
the St. Paul schools. While none of the mem
bers of the subcommittee will give out any
definite information relative to the character
of its forthcoming report, talks with all of
them tend to show that certain surmises al
ready published are very wide of the mark.
There will be no cutting off of principals,
and the vacancy in the list occasioned by the
resignation of Miss Shanley will be filled by
appointment of a new principal for the
Franklin school. All vacancies in the teach
ing force will be filled, with very few excep
tions. Some teachers will be dicharged "for
cause," or, rather, they will not be reappoint
ed: but the reduction in number will be
Already the subcommittee has completed
and agreed on the schedule of salaries. Of
course, anything which might be said about
the different items, as to reductions or re
arrangement of the same, would, be mere
•guess work. As soon as the salary list was
satisfactorily made up the subcommittee at
once began work on the list of teachers, and
the make-up of that is now engaging their
attention. By Saturday it will be complete,
but it will not be announced until the board
meets on Monday. The meeting will, it is
expected, settle the whole matter of salaries
and teachers before adjournment. While
nothing official can be learned In regard to
the rumored consolidation 61 the manual
training with the central high school, there
is little likelihood that these two will be put
together under one head. However this may
be, the expected sensations will not develop.
The work of the subcommittee has been very
carefully done, and the length of time taken
to do it undoubtedly gave rise to the rumor
of radical changes in salaries and teaching
corps. In reality, however, this ls a routine
part of the school board's work which is nec
essarily done by the inspectors.
Not in Conflict With the Law of the
Attorney General Chllds has finally found
one field of fire insurance where, in his opin
ion, the coinsurance clause suggested by the
underwriters is not in conflict with the laws
of Minnesota. This is In connection with the
risks which are supplied with automatic
sprinklers, the attorney general holding that,
inasmuch as compliance with this clause en
ables the insured to get lower rates, the
clause is within the legal rights of the com
panies. The attorney general covers the sub
ject quite exhaustively in a letter to Insur
ance Commissioner Smith, which is as fol
lows :
Calling attention to General Laws 1895,
chapter 175, section 25, you inquire whether
the clause relative to automatic sprinklers
authorizes the use of the coinsurance clause
upon the policies covering risks equipped
with automatic sprinklers. The section above
cited provides, In part, as follows:
"Any provision, contract or stipulation con
tained in any contract or policy of insurance,
Issued or made by any fire insurance com
pany, association, syndicate or corporation,
insuring any property within this state, ex
cept risks equipped by automatic sprinklers,
whereby it is provided or stipulated that the
assured shall maintain Insurance on any
property covered by the policy to the extent
of SO per cent on the value thereof, or to
any extent whatever, and any provision or
stipulation in any such contract or policy
of insurance, that the insurer shall be an in
surer of the property insured to any extent,
and any provision or stipulation in any such
contract or policy to the effect that the in
sured shall bear any portion of the loss on
the property insured, are hereby declared to
be null and void," etc.
It is difficult to see any valid reason for
the Incorporation into the foregoing provis
ions of the automatic sprinkler clause. The
effect of that clause is to subject the owner of
property who has been to the expense of
equipping the same with such apparatus, to
the penalty of such exactions with reference
to maintaining a certain percentage of insur
ance, etc., as the insurer is pleased to im
pose. In other words, the assured incurs the
penalty of such exactions by adopting the
improvements and safeguards in question.
I am almost disposed to adopt the view that
the clause is wholly nugatory, as being di
rectly at variance with the manifest purpose
of the legislature. It has, however, been
suggested that the clause was adopted to
meet cases of large risks, which, with rare
exceptions, are the only ones thus equipped.
Inasmuch as the assured can procure insur
ance at more favorable terms when subjected
to such condition, than he otherwise could,
the legislature was disposed to make an ex
ception in his case. It being the rule of this
department that an administrative officer
ought not to disregard the express provisions
of the statute, unless the same be palpably
Invalid, I am constrained to advise you that
the clause in question modifies all of the pro
visions relative to risks contemplated by the
language above quoted. In other words,
where risks are equipped with automatic
sprinklers the insurer may require insur
ance to any extent, and that the assured may
be an insurer of his property to any extent
agreed upon between him and the insurer.
In view of the questionable validity of the
clause in question, it ought to be restricted
within the narrowest limits. I .^therefore ad
vise you that it has no application whatever
to any of the provisions contained in the
sentences of the section following the sen
tence from which the above question is made.

Custodian of tbe City Hall Booked
for Dismissal.
"When P. B. Doran becomes mayor of St.
Paul, he also becomes the chairman of the
board of county commissioners and chairman
of the joint court house and city hall com
mission. The political complexion of both
these bodies is already Republican by 4 to 3
in each case. The accession of Mr. Doran in
place of Mayor Smith will give the Repub
licans the comfortable working majority of
three, which, in the case of the joint court
house and city hall commission, will doubt
less insure the appointment in June of a Re
publican - custodian ot- the court house and
city hall, and as many Republican janitors,
elevator men and scrub women as may be de
sired. Last January, when the joint com
mission became Republican by the ousting of
Ehrmanntraut and Hare and the seating of
Assemblyman Arosin and Aid. Milham, the
Republicans at once attempted to discharge
Custodian August Nilsson, but they reckoned
without their host. Messrs. Johnson, Arosin
and Milham were ready to make a clean
sweep of the whole building, but County Com
missioner Wright, the other Republican mem
ber of the joint commission, believed in doing
the fair thing by Mr. Nilsson, and would not
vote to remove him before the expiration of
his term of office. But when the commission
stands 5 to 2, there is small chance for any
Democrat, even though he be, as in the case
of Mr. Nilsson, the most competent custodian
the building has ever had.
New Second Regriment Band Sur
prises the Commander.
Stein's band, just officially made the Second
Regiment band, met Tuesday night, donned
their new uniforms and marched to the home
of Col. Joseph Bobleter, of the Second, on St,
Anthony hill, where they gave their com
manding officer a rousing serenade. Some of
the colonel's national guard friends had been
let into the secret and were present to share
his pleasure. Among them were Gen. Bend;
Adjt. Gen. Muehlberg, Maj. Libbey, Col.
Shandrew, Capt. Bennet, Minneapolis; Capt
Hart, Col. Soren Listoe, Col. Pusch, and Mr.
and Mrs. Louis Wagner.
Col. Bobleter assumed the role of host with
all the promptness of a soldier, and feels
pretty proud of his new band.
Observer Lyons Adheres to His Orig
inal Proposition.
From Tuesday evening at 6:20 o'clock until
yesterday morning about 5 a full one and a
half Inches of rain fell. Observer Lyons
says this was not an unusual fall for this
time of the year. Yesterday's rain at odd
intervals was the tail end of the storm of
tho night before, and therefore does not con
flict with the weather bureau's prediction
for a week of anti-stormy, clear, moderately
cool weather. This condition may be expect
ed to begin business this morning. At 7
o'clock yesterday morning the temperature
registered 64, and the maximum for the day
was 81.
The Saloonkeeper Is in a Critical
A. B. Lasher, the saloonkeeper, Is confined
at the city hospital, where he is undergoing
treatment for temporary aberration. Mr.
Lasher has been in ill health for some time,
but it was not thought that his trouble was
of so serious a nature until last Saturday,
when he began to conduct himself in a strange
manner. Upon the advice of a physician he
was sent to St. Joseph's hospital Sunday,
morning. About 11 o'clock Monday evening
Mr. Lasher became s*o violent that it was
necessary to remove him to the county jail
and place him in the padded cell. His condi
tion continued to grow worse, and Tuesday it
was deemed best to send him to the city
hospital. The hospital authorities stated last
evening that Mr. Lasher's affliction had as
sumed the gravest aspects and that his re
covery was doubtful.
Mr. Lasher was married to a lady of this
city only a short time ago.

Rev. M. D. Edwards Will Deliver the
Sermon the Sunday Preceding
May 30.
The old soldiers of StPaul, and all citizens
who believe that due honor should be shown
the nation's dead, will be pleased to learn
that Congressman Kiefer has had passed a
bill providing for an appropriate monument
on the soldiers' plat in Oakland cemetery.
Capt. Charles J, Stees, post commander of
Acker post, G. A. R., not long ago suggested
to Congressman Kiefer the propriety of secur
ing by act of congress a monument for the
plat in Oakland, called "Soldiers' Rest"
Congressman Kiefer thought the expense of
a monument would be too great, but prom
ised to see what he could do. The result is
that a bill has been passed providing for the
placing on the plat of one cannon and. four
pyramids of cannon balls—not exactly a
monument—but practically as good as one.
Just when the cannon will arrive is not

German-speaking veterans.
The Chairmen of Several Commit
tees Report Progress.
It was a busy day jresterday for the mem
bers of the encampment executive committee.
They met at headquarters at 4 o'clock, were
in session until 5:30, and took up their work
again at 8 o'clock last evening. Their time
was altogether devoted to hearing reports of
the chairmen of the amusement, decorations
and badge committees, and in devising gen
eral plans to rigorously push the arrange
ments for the big September event. Little
or nothing was definitely decided upon, how
ever, as the plans of some of the committees
were not fully matured and in such shape
that they could be finally passed upon.
Chairman E. O. Zimmerman, of the badge
committee, submitted designs for the encamp
ment badges. He was instructed to ascertain
the cost of badges of each design and report
at a future meeting.
The amusements committee, by its chair
man, Maj. John Espey, reported several very
good plans, but the work of this committee
in the matter of detail has not yet begun. It
is Maj. Espey's idea to have amusements for
the multitude every hour in the day for the
entire week. He proposes to weave the amuse
ments in with the principal events of the
The only number on the proposed pro
gramme of amusements definitely decided upon
is the bicycle parade. This will occurr. Three
liberal cash prizes will be offered to the best
uniformed and drilled bicycle corps in line.
Chairman W. G. Strickland, of the decora
tions committee, has his plans fully ma
tured, and, after he had reported last even
ing, he was told to go ahead, ascertain the
complete cost of everything and report back to
the executive committee for further orders.
Mr. Strickland's plans for decorating St. Paul
are elaborate, and if he can put them into
execution, will make St. Paul, for that one
week, at least, a metropolis of beauty and
brilliancy never equaled in the history of the
Henry Brunzel's Plans to Get Home
Rudely Upset.
Henry Brunzel, who was pardoned from
the workhouse yesterday, two weeks before
the expiration of a ninety days' sentence for
larceny, in order that he might hasten to the
bedside of his dying tsother, at Watertown,
Minn., was locked upi at7the Rondo street
police station last night an another charge.
The warrant upon which Brunzel was arrest
ed was sworn out by Josephine Dv Fourd, who
lives at the corner of; Chicago and Starkey
avenues, West St Paul. ;
Brunzel is a country bpy, nineteen years
eld. He came to St £aul- about six months
ago and was shortly afterwards arrested on
suspicion of having knowledge of a lot of
stolen clothes "cached" in his apartments,
he alleges, by two roommates. His brother
in-law, C. H. Kegel, of 3080 Chicago avenue,
secured his release from the workhouse pur-'
suant to a telegram from Watertown, stating
that the boy's mother was dying and begged
to see him once more. Brunzel willingly
agreed to marry Miss Dv Fourd last night so
that he could start for home at once, but such
is law, that he will have to await an arraign
ment in the municipal court this morning.
In an Action Concerning a Piece of
Leased Property.
Jacob H. Bohrer and Michael Moriarty
have gone into court to have P. D. Scannell
assessed $500 for damages already inflicted on
them, as alleged, and to restrict him from in
flicting any further damage. Complainants
allege that Julia Moriarty was the owner of
a certain piece of property on the West side,
which she leased to them ln May, 1895, for
a term of five years. On the property they
erected a one-story frame building, necessary
to the successful conduct of a scavenger busi
ness. On or about April 27, 1896, as alleged,
Scannell or his agents.entered the premises
and tore down and destroyed the frame build
ing. Therefore the plaintiffs pray for an in
junction to prevent Scannell from carrying
Into execution a threat 'that he will tear
down a new building theyrhave erected; and
they also ask judgment against him for $500
to cover damage already suffered.
St. Panl Parties Offered a Large
Block of Mining.
The stockholders of the Ophir Mining and
Milling company, whose principal place of

Celebrate the Possession of Fine
Netv Quarters.
The members of the Junior Pioneer associa
tion occupied their handsome new quarters in
Elks' hall, in the Lowry arcade, for the first
time last evening, and celebrated the event
with an enjoyable musical and literary en
tertainment. A unique and creditable fea
ture of the programme was the fact that every
number was rendered by a member of the
organization, or by their children.
The opening number was a selection for
mandolins and guitars, which, as rendered
by Messrs. Dahl, Chase, Hinderer and Myer
dlng, was a genuine musical treat. The Im
perial quartette sang "Tic Tac," a nursery
rhyme set ln tuneful melody, in so pleasing
a manner that the members were the recip
ients of two hearty encores, while a select
ed vocal duet by Misses Anna Grode and
Lizzie Simmer was received with equal ap
probation. Charles Fairchlld recited "Aux
Iltalian," a pretty love story of other days,
and responded to appreciative applause with
two amusing Irish anecdotes, heightened by
a thoroughly funny brogue; and Prof. Franz
Stollwork contributed a well executed piano
solo. Miss Mamie Starke sang a selected
soprano solo, which added to the pleasure of
the entertainment, whose conclusion was a
medley of negro melodies by the Imeprlal

Made and merit maintains the confi
dence of the people in Hood's Sarsa
parilla. If a medicine cures you when
you are sick; if it cures your neighbors
and friends when they are ailing-; if it
makes wonderful cures of many dis
eases everywhere, then beyond any
question that medicine possesses merit.
That is just the truth about Hood's
Sarsaparilla. We know it possesses
merit because it cures, not once or
twice or a hundred times, but in thou
sands and thousands of cases. We
know it cures, absolutely, permanently
when all others fail to do any good
Hood's Sarsaparilla is known to pos
sess merit or the power to cure dis
case; it is known to be the best spring
medicine on earth; it is known to be
honestly advertised, and for these
reasons the people continue to buy and
take Hood's Sarsaparilla almost to the
exclusion of other preparations. In
fact, merit made and merit maintains
the confidence of the people in
