Arthur Ryiler Persona Yon Grata to
The examination of Arthur Ryder, arrested
for the larceny of scales, hose and other arti
cles from the Ilamm Brewing company, was
heard before Judge Orr yesterday afternoon.
The evidence of the police officers was that
the atricles had been found in a building
near where Ryder usually loitered. The fact
that he ran when Officer Ostrum chased him
■was taken as an evidence that he had stolen
the articles. Judge Orr thought the evi
dence not strong enough, and, aa the lad's
father had promised to send him out of the
state, he was allowed to go. Judge Orr in
structed the officers if Ryder was found In
the city after Wednesday to bring him in and
he would send him to the workhouse for
three months, there being a sentence of this
kind hanging over his head for some time.

THE MAYOR SIGXS THE ORUI

OF PMIL.IC WORKS
AFTER A LITTLE FORMALITY.
PARTISAN MEASURE WHICH THE
CHIEF EXECUTIVE HASDS
TO THE COURTS,
COPELAXH SQUEEZES WARREX OUT
The Man Who Banked on Getting
the Place to be Turned
Mayor Doran yesterday put his sig
nature to the ordinance recently passed
by the council which purports to abol
ish the board of public works.
This detail of signing the ordinance
is> merely the beginning of a contest
that will not end short of the state su
preme court. Everybody understood
this fact, and that is why the mayor
hesitated until the last moment to
sign the partisan ordinance by which
it is thought to depose a few Demo
cratic officials to make place for a very
small percentage of the hungry vic
tors who have been clamoring for a
share of the spoils. In explaining why
he signed the ordinance, the mayor
"I signed the ordinance in accord
ance with a strong popular demand.
If any doubt exists as to its validity
the courts will have to determine it,
not the mayor. I will admit that there
seems to be some doubt as to some of
the points in the new ordinance, but
I will not set my Judgment against the
legal talent that has been invoked In
its preparation and adoption. I hope
speedy action may be had and an early
decision reached by the proper tribu
Next Monday is the day set by law
for the new commissioner to take pos
session of his office. When he appears
to demand possession his name will un
doubtedly be John Copeland. The as
sembly has selected the man, as he
must be confirmed by that body, and
the mayor has signified his satisfac
tion with the choice. President Gor
man and Messrs. Quinby, Hare and
Banholzer will not surrender the posi
tions they hold unless the supreme
court shall decide that they must.
While they did not care to say yester
day just what course they will pursue,
the present commissioners have been
fully advised as to their rights and ex
pect to maintain them without trouble.
Conjecture was freely entered into
yesterday as to what course Mr. Cope
land will pursue after he is appointed.
The rabid partisans who expect to go
in with him as clerks, foremen, etc.^
hope to see him take forcible posses
sion, by the aid of Custodian Dayton's
force, and the police force, if necessary.
But Copeland is not of so truculent a
humor- himself, and it is not unlikely
that he will await the outcome oC a
legal movement to oust the present
board by a writ of quo warran:o, or ty
The new commissioner of public works
would receive $3,000 a year if seated.
The present members draw $2,500 each
George N. Warren, who at one time
was considered to have a very good
chance of being appointed commission
er, evidently gave up hope some time
ago. A Globe reporter said to him
"Mr. Warren, what do you know
about the commissionership of public
"Nothing at all."
"You know, of course, that John
Copeland is to be appointed?"
"No, I do not. As I tell you, I know
nothing about the matter, and am not
worrying about it."
"But you read the newspapers Mr
"Yes, sometimes— when I have time "
And the Fifth ward leader let it go at
that. If he is sore he is keeping his
kick all to himself; but his friends have
not yet ceased their efforts to get War
ren into some position that will pay
fairly well, mayhap in Commissioner
Copeland's office, if the latter wins the

BOYD IIM'.II FIFTY.
Sentence of the Constable Convicted
After several continuances, sentence
was passed yesterday on W. B. Boyd
who was convicted of larceny in the
police court several weeks ago. Boyd,
who was at the time of the larceny,
and is now a constable in a justice
court, was found guilty of holding out
$9 from a youth who commenced suit
to recover the wages due him from the
Goss Roberts Co. The evidence showed
that Boyd had collected $35, and had
only paid over $25 to the plaintiff. Some
months afterward the plaintiff in the
suit learned that Boyd had collected
$35 from the firm instead of $25, and a
warrant was issued for Boyd's arrest
on a charge of larceny. A jury trial
was demanded and a verdict of guilty
The case has been continued from
time to time and yesterday Boyd was
before Judge Twohy for sentence. He
was represented by E. E. McDonald
and F. H. Clark and both attorneys
asked for a continuance on the ground
of newly discovered evidence. The new
evidence consisted of a witness who,
it was stated, would testify that he
heard the plaintiff in the suit tell Boyd
that any amount more than $25 col
lected, he, Boyd, could have for himself.
Judge Twohy said he did not care to
hear any more evidence at this time
and sentenced Boyd to pay a fine of
$50 or stand committed to the work
house for sixty days. As soon as the
sentence was pronounced a motion was
made for an arrest of judgement pend
ing a motion for a new trial. E. E.
McDonald explained to the court that
the witness who was wanted was at
present engaged in the harvest fields
of Washington county and could not
be secured before Monday. The court
directed the clerk to issue a stay until
that time when a motion will be argued
for a new trial. Ex-Justice of the Peace
Rodgers, under whose jurisdiction the
suit was brought, asked the court, be
fore passing sentence, to be as lenient
as possible with Boyd. He said the
statement had been made that he was
anxious to have the case against Boyd
pushed but this is false.
WHITE WILL RECOVIOR.
Tillte Sch rmii »f. Hi« Victim, Also
During the morning session of the
police court yesterday, the case against
11. B. White, who is charged with at
tempted murder, was called. White, who
did the best he could with the aid of
a revolver and several cartridges to kill
Tillie Schrumpf, Sunday, was not in
court, but in a cot at the city hospital.
County Attorney Butler told the court
that it was possible that White would
| be able to be in court one week from
j today, but rather than be bothered
with the case it could be continued
indefinitely, and when White was able
to appear the court would be notified.
The physicians in attendance at the
city hospital report White much better
yesterday and with chances in favor
of his spe«dy recovery. Tillie Schrumpf,
his victim, is reported as doing nicely
and with no dangerous symptoms. She
was visited by her brother George
Schrumpf, who came up from North
field yesterday morning and had a long
talk with her.
CYCLE PATH SHOW.
White Bear Will Have a Gala
Tonight at Ramaley's pavilion, Lake
Shore, White Bear, occurs the enter
tainment given under the auspices of
the White Bear Yacht club and the
St. Paul Cycle Path association, for
the benefit of the cycle path. The pro

Col. W. P. Clough, and a mixed pro
gramme participated in by Misses Ray
Lamprey, Tarbox, Hall and Flossie
Myron; C. M. Griggs, Lou Wilkes and
Master James Brown. There will also

tertainment, presented by the following
ladies* and gentlemen: The Misses
Lamborn, Kalman, Lamprey and
Myron, Mesdames W. F. Peet, T. L.

A. B. and W. J. Driscoll.
The entertainment will conclude with
dancing. Music by Seiberts orchestra.
It is particularly requested that those
who attend the entertainment will ap

Already complaints are being made
that nails, tacks, and glass are being
found in the cycle path, and the as
sociation offers $10 reward for the ar
rest and conviction of anyone caught
placing any of these things thereon.
Sign boards are being painted to
direct cyclists to the White Bear path
and the trees near It are being white
washed to prevent accidents at night.
MADE A CLEVER STOP.
Officer Tom Galvin Prevent* a Run
A horse attached to an open buggy
owned by C. P. Wildung, ran away
yesterday afternoon, starting from the
Seven Corners. Down Seventh street
the frightened animal dashed increas
ing his pace at every jump. A Seventh
street car had stopped at Minnesota
street to allow a number of passengers
to alight just as the runaway steed
came along. Several of the passengers
were ladies and they undoubtedly would
have been seriously injured had it not
been for the action of Patrolman
Thomas Galvin. The officer was stand
ing between Cedar and Minnesota
streets and realizing that something
should be done and that quickly, drew
Ms club and, running into the street,
struck the horse in the head knocking
the runaway down. No damage was
done except the breaking of one of the
shafts of the buggy. In the rig was j
the owner's coat containing a pocket
book and checks amounting to $570 and j
other valuable papers which were re
turned to him.
HIS COUNTERFEIT COIN.
Samuel Short Maintains That He
Found It All.
Samuel Short, the man arrested at
Resemount last Saturday with a valise
full of counterfeit silver dollars in his j
possession, was arraigned before Com- !
missloner Spencer yesterday morning j
and held to the federal grand jury in j
the sum of $2,000.
Short plead not guilty to the charge j
of counterfeiting lodged against him
and refused to give any information
as to how he became possessed, of the
begus money, other than to insist that
he had found the valise beside the rail
He was unable to furnish bail and
was committed to the county jail.
SOCIETY'S BALL GAME.

Inquiries are frequently received at
Grand Army headquarters about rail
road rates for the encampment from
points in the Northwest. This informa
tion can be obtained from local railroad
agents, but such inquiries are answered
by General Secretary Pinney with the
statement that, generally speaking,
the rate will be one fare for the round
trip. In some cases the rate will be
less than that, but not much.
The time limit on tickets, when sold,
will be fifteen days, but the time may
be extended to Sept. 30 by depositing
tickets with the joint agent in St. Paul
before Sept. 15. •■
The joint agent Is a man who will
represent all railroads centering in St.
Paul that desire to participate in such
an arrangement. IHis office is a sort
of railroad ticket .clearing- hmise. He
will have a force of tr»i-">fi ~i*rks and
will be located at a ceritral point in the
city, where the thousands of people
who need his servioes may easily reach
him. At present the citizens' commit

These half fare tickets from North
western points will be sold for trains
arriving in St. Paul Monday, Aug 31
and Tuesday, Sept. 1.
This is the general plan for encamp
ment business that Northwestern roads
expect to observe. The Northern Pa
cific has posted its rates with all
agents, and sent a copy to the citizens'
committee, and all other roads will
likely do so soon.
The contract for the publication of
a souvenir book of the encampment
will be let this afternoon. Bids have
been received from a number of firms
desirous of getting out the book, and
at 2 o'clock this afternoon they will
meet with the executive committee
for final action. Fifteen thousand
copies of the souvenir will -constitute
the first issue. This number, it is con
sidered, will supply the demand for
tfc« hook during the encampment and
a second edition will be published
Some misapprehension concerning
the accommodations at Camp Mason
has been expressed by- those who have
watched the grading process going on
at the end of the Selby avenue cable
line, on account of the unstable nature
of the fill upon which part of the camp
will be located. It is thought that in
wet weather the insides of the tents
will become muddy and uncomfortable,
while in the absence of rain the dust
will be unbearable. These fears are,
however, entirely dissipated by the
statement of Secretary Pinney concern
ing the matter, wtto says that every
tent In the camp w^ll r be fitted with a
board floor, which .Will prevent damp
ness of any kind from discommoding
the occupants, and that, in case there
is a dearth of rain* t,he grounds will
be thoroughly sprinkled.
The medical department, which will
look after those who may be taken ill
or suffer through the heat during the
grand review, is now complete in its
organization. Dr. Pulton is in charge
of one division of physicians and Dr.
Higbee of the other.
To Dr. Fulton and his staff has been
assigned Camp Mason, and the district
covered by the line ©f jmarch as far as
St. Peter street. At, the starting point
of the parade, at Dayton and Western
avenues, there will be an emergency
hospital and two ' ambulances. The
ambulances will be on duty day and
night through encampment week. A
second station will be maintained at
Summit park and a third one at Sum
mit and Western avenues, where a
corps of physicians under Dr. Fulton
will take care of the school children
composing the living flag.
Dr. Higbee and his corps of as
sistants have been assigned the parade
while it is in lower town and will make
arrangements similar to those of the
other division of physicians for the care
of those who may be overcome by the
wayside. At Sixth and Wabasha
streets there will be a station and an
ambulance at the control of the staff
at all hours of the night and day.
There will also be a staff of physicians
stationed at the Mannheimer building
on East Third street and at the grand
reviewing stand at Smith park. Dr.

lishment of a temporary hospital at his

which the sum which is being raised
for the erection of a memorial arch to

Last week a meeting was held at the
St. James' A. M. E. Methodist church,
which resulted in the raising of $185.
Part of this sum was in cash and part
in subscriptions. At the meeting last
evening $65 more was added to the gen
eral fund. The gathering was attended
by Gen. Clapp, D. R. McGinnis, c. W.
Horr. F. L. McGhee- and Secretary
Brigham, of the G. A. R. committee on
accommodations, each of whom made
a brief address commending the colored
people for the project which the/ had
undertaken and urging them to lack
nothing in effort to bring their plan to
a successful reality. At the conclusion
or" the remarks of the gentleman an
opportunity was given those who had
not yet subscribed to the arch fund to
do so, and while the Twin City Colored
band played inspiring music many of

Praising the Hospitable Britons for
Another letter received from George Lang
ford by the members of his family, sounds
in the most enthusiastic praise the unlimited
hospitality of the English people to the mem
bers of the Yale crew, of which Mr. Lang
ford is a member. The letter was dated
after the great race at Henley course, since
which event the crew has been dined ' and
feted continuously. The letter stated that
every night, without one exception, their
English hosts had provided some kind of an
entertainment for them, either a theater
party, a banquet, coaching party, or a hop.
Every member of the crew is in love wltn
the English people, who seem to think the
Yale men are equally nice. At one of the
fetes a set piece of fireworks was touched
off, the piece representing Yale and Leander
joining hands. Mr. Langford writes that the
enthusiasm was something tremendous at this
juncture, as the piece was a surprise to all.
The Englishmen and their American guests
hugged each other in their delight and
friendliness. At a banquet served the Yale
men by the Leanders, each drank to the
eternal good will of the other out of the
grand challenge cup. At one banquet, Chauh

Speaking of the English crews, Mr. Lang
ford saya they are undoubtedly the finest
oarsmen in the world, and that Yale had
gained an experience which will be of In
estimable benefit to her in the future. The
English oarsmen, says Mr. Langford, train
from early youth, and individually are ex
perts. He says the veteran oarsmen, men
with white hair, are living contradictions of
the claim that rowing shortens the life of the
oarsmen. The British oarsman rows harder
than the American. He put» more power

Hoard of Equalization Listens to
The board of equalization held a short ses
sion yesterday afternoon. The only matters
to receive attention were communications
from Anthony Yoerg and the estate of Solo
mon Bergman concerning the tax levy just
completed on certain property.
Mr. Yoerg set forth that several houses on
the West side belonging to him were rated
at more than the actual value, as were also
other houses on Washington street.

Li tie Girls' Sailor Suit:— This is just
the thing for a little girl's outing dress.
Made of white duck, trimmed with
narrow dark blue braid, it forms the
jauntiest of Summer suits. The blouse
waist requires no lining. It is cut with
a big sailor collar, which may be braid
ed or trimmed with lace or insertion
to suit the taste. A shield piece either
of dark blue duck or of the same mate
rial as the costume, fills in the opening
left by the sailor collar. A narrow
band collar completes the neck. The
bishop sleeves are cut very full and
end under the prettiest of braided
cuffs. A convenient little pocket is
placed on the left side of the front.
A draw string run in around the bot
tom of the waist confines its fullness
in the proper position. The full
sraight skirt may be plainly finished
or trimmed with rows of braid as pre
ferred. It Is gathered into a belt.
Serge, flannel, outing cloth, cotton co
vert, Galatea, duck, pique, grass linen,
gingham chambray etc., can be used
