Highest of all in Leavening Power. — Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
And Thinks He Can Solidify Him
self With This I ncertain Quan
tity In That "\Va>\
Gov. David M. Clough may be string
ing several men along with the suppo
sition that each one of them is to even
tually be rewarded with the position
of state insurance commissioner made
vacant by the death of C. H. Smith.
The idea that the appointment is com
ing their way has been an incentive to
several men in and out of the Twin
Cities to talk and hustle for the gover
nor. Whether or not he intends to keep
them thinking that way until after the
election remains to be seen. So far as
the business of the office Is concerned,
it doesn't make any difference whether
anybody is appointed .or not, for Acting
Commissioner L/ightbourne has directed
the affairs of the department satisfac
torily for nearly two years and could
possibly continue to do so for two years
longer. It is fair to him to say he has
done the work to the satisfaction of
everybody who has had anything to do
with the office, a fact evidenced by the
petitions in the governor's office from
the St. Paul and Minneapolis fire un
derwriters and the St. Paul and Minne
apolis Life underwriters as well as
petitions and personal requests from
other parts of the state, asking Gov.
Cl< ugh to appoint him to the vacancy.
If the governor wanted to make the ap
pointment without reference to poli
tics, he would, therefore, it is believed,
have named Mr. Lightbourne to suc
ceed to the place some time ago.
As a matter of fact, as nearly as can
be learned, Gov. Clough doesn't intend
to appoint Mr. Lightbourne to the po
sition. Neither does he intend to ap
-Ini at W. M. Todd, nor Elmer H.
Dearth, both of whom have held the
position of assistant state insurance
commissioner. Both of these gentlemen
expect the place. In fact Todd is report
ed to have said some time ago that
hs had the governor pledged. The Min
neapolis Journal ■ two or three weeks
ago published the following about it:
It appears that Governor Clough, about six
weeks ago. when the situation In Ramsey
county distressed him. promised this appoint
ment to W. M. Todd, of St. Paul, If that
gentleman would undertake to "deliver" a
certain portion of the city at the county'
convention. Thereupon Mr. Todd began to
leg it for the Hon. D. M. C, and his portion
of the city was gathered into the Clough camp,
as Mr. Todd avers, by his own efforts.
In the buoyancy of his success Mr. Todd con
fided the wnole deal to a delegate at the state
convention, and the delegate— whose name
can be given when necessary— told the Journal
man. Mr. Todd told the delegate that he
"had Dave pledged."
There are said to be eight other appli
crnts for the place, all of whom feel
they are going to get it in time. One
of these is Wilbur S. Tupper, and Mr.
Tupper, the G1 o b c has been informed,
is the man who will get the position!
He has more qualifications than some
of the men who have held the office had
when they took hold of it because he is
himself an actuary and is at present en
gaged in the life insurance business
with E. W. Peet & Co., St. Paul,
although living in Minneapolis, Mr.
Tupper was chief clerk of the census
work and knows a lot about how that
work was done which he will prob
ably never tell whether he is given a
place by Gov. Clough or not. But the
strength of Mr. Tupper lies in the fact
that he was associated with M. J.
Boyle, when that gentleman ran the
Loyal American, the American Protec
tive association weekly that flourished
In Minneapolis two years ago. If he is
not a member of the A. P. A. himseif.
he is sufficiently popular with them to
cr-mimnd their backing. That is going
to cut a good deal of a figure in the
Minneapolis and St. Paul vote, Gov.
Clough reckons in the coming cam
paign, and if he can secure it by ap
pointing Mr. Tupper state insurance
commissioner, he is going to have It.
Mr. Tupper has already done some
hustling for Gov. Clough in the past
and. it is understood, is not worrying
n bit about the uncertainties of the po
sition. When the commission is made
out he expects it will be in the name of
Wilbur S. Tupper, unless the unex
pected ocours in the meantime.
Reported Riot on Edmnnd Street
Dwindled on liu ( nlry.
The Rondo street police officials were
notified last evening at 7 o'clock that
theiv was a riot near the coiner of Avoa
and Edmund streets. The information
*as brought by a gentleman who drove
to the station post haste and the pa
trol wagon with a detail of officers was
soon enroute wtth the same speed
When the police arrived the crowd had
ell disappeared, with the exception of
some ten or fifteen persons who live
In the immediate neighborhood
The cause of the excitement was the
running down of a four-year-old son
of J. H. Niemann, who resides at 816
Edmund street. The child was playing
In front of the house about 6:30 o'clock
when a passing vehicle which was be
ing driven rapidly down the street ran

V'rte from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant
over the youngster. The crowd at once
gathered and as the territory is thickly
settled, those l'lving in the immediate
neighborhood when called to any cer
tain spot make quite a respectable'
showing. The police were unable to
learn who drove or owned the rig which
ran down the child. Dr. Seybel was
called and reported the child not ser
iously hurt, the only injury being a
scalp wound. Mr. Niemann, seen later
in the evening, said he had no intention
of making any complaint against the
person driving the rig which ran over
his child, and if he wanted to, could not
say who it was. The child, he said, was
not hurt much, and there was no need
of having the police called, or any ex
citement over the accident.

Is to De Given Special Protection
Between Now and the First of
Executive Agent Fullerton, of the
state game and fish commission, yes
terday announced the appointment of
a batch of 15 special deputy game
wardens to serve from now until the
Ist of September. The names, however,
are not given out for publication, on
account of the special nature of the
j work assigned the new men.
For several days the game and fish
commission has been deluged with com
plaints concerning the slaughter of
helpless young chickens and ducks by
alleged sportsmen in various counties.
; The complaints are especially numerous
from Anoka county, Twin City resi
dents spending the Sabbath in the ln
| discriminate slaughter of the birds.
The young chickens and ducks are at
pres»t hardly bigger than the fist of
an ordinary man, and the killing is
anything but sport. Residents of Polk
county,* around Crookston, of Stevens
I county, near Morris, and of Nobles
county, near Worthington, have also
I made complaints and wardens were ap
i pointed to serve In each of these vicini
ties until the opening of the game
season the first of September.
Mr. Fullerton states that the depart
! ment is going to protect the young
! birds until the opening of the shooting
season if it becomes necessary to ap
point a warden at every cross-roads
( In the state. The prairie districts seem
i to be overrun with a horde of use
less blood-spillers who have neither
respect for the law nor love for true
sport. The birds at their present stage
are about as good marks as tin ducks
and it does not require much of a
i sportsman to massacre them in scores.
' The thing must and will be stopped.
The commission will continue in the
appointment of wardens until every
acre of land where the birds have been
breeding has been protected by a
! warden.
Weighty Matters Occupied Their At
At a meeting of the board of county
. commissioners held yesterday after
noon, it was decided to include in the
! tax levy estimate an appropriation of
$3,000 for equipping the city hospital
with an electric light plant.
The report of the committee on roads
and bridges which contemplates the
issuance of $100,000 worth of bonds for
the purpose of building macadamized
roads, was the subject of some adverse
criticism on the part of Messrs. Doran,
Kellerman and Ness, although It was
finally adopted and placed on file. A
clause was also included in the report
recommending that there be included
in the tax levy schedule an appropria- I
tion of $28,000, for the improvement of
roads and bridges of which $10,000 was
to be set aside for the construction of
macadamized roads. The recommenda
tion at this time was made by the com
mittee on roads and bridges for the
reason that when the schedule was sub
mitted last week it had not yet com
pleted its figures.
Following a consideration of the re
port by separate items the extra recom
mendation was unanimously adopted
and the schedule accordingly amended.
j The recommendation for the issuance
I of the $100,000, payable in ten equal
yearly installments with interest at 4
per cent, was supported by Commis
j sioner Allen, its framer, and also by
j Commissioners McCarron, Wright and
j Moritz. The arguments in favor of the
I proposed Issuance were in general to
the effect that St. Paul was at a far
\ greater disadvantage than neighboring
j cities in the way of suitable approaches
I from the country districts, and that
! for this reason much trade was divert
ed into other channels which would,
with the proper facilities, come to this
city. It was stated that the Increase
in the tax levy would be so small as
applied to each individual tax payer
that it would not be felt to any ap
preciable extent and as a rule, in con
sideration of the good which would
accrue to the city, most of the proper
ty holders would be glad to pay their
share. Notwithstanding the urgent
plea of those favorable to the plan.
Mayor Doran, and Commissioners Ness
and Kellerman vigorously opposed the
issuance of the bonds at this time on
the grounds that at the present time
the strictest economy should govern
the action of the board and they did
not believe the tax levy should be in
creased even in the slightest degree.
Chairman Kerwin, of the board of
control, and Dr. Ancker were present
to request that an electric light plant
be placed in the city hospital. Figures
were presented to show that the ex
pense of lighting the institution in 1593
had been $1,145.10; in 1894, $1,347.15; in
1895, $1,593.45, and for the first six
months of this year, $1,112.12. The in
crease in the expense, it was explained,
v.as owing to the larger number of
patients for which the hospital is car
ing each year. The cost of the plant
proposed was placed at $3,000, with a
yearly expense for Its operation of
Commissioner Ness and County Au
ditor Sullivan asked Mr. Kerwin if the
plant could not be provided out of the
appropriation already included in the
tax levy, but the latter emphatically
said it could not as the board of con
trol had reduced Dr. Ancker's estimate
$4,000. On coming to a vote the appro
priation for the plant was unanimously
The county attorney was instructed
to take an appeal to the supreme court
in the case of Libbey against Anthony
Toerg, in which Judge Brill recently
decided that the tax Judgments of 1893
were void. The county attorney ex
plained that Mr. Toerg and two other
parties held certificates against certain
property owned by Mr. Libbey and en-

in an action brought by Mr. Libbey,
Judge Brill had decided that the Judg
ment was void, owing to a clerical er
ror in the office of the clerk of courts,
whereby the date had been omitted
from the record. Mr. Butler said that
this decision would also affect all other
tax judgments/.of that year.

Part of the- crew of laborers who
were employed by H. C. Huebner, in
the grading of Rice street, and who
claimed to have wages still due them,
appeared before the board to ask if
there was any way of collecting their
money. The answer was given that
the contractor! still owed other claims
on the work which he was unable to
pay. The county attorney advised the
men that the only way in which they
could recover would be to bring suit
against Huebner's bondsmen.
The county auditor was asked to fur
nish an account of the expenditures on
the Rice street improvements.

Sew Directory Showes What's In a
This year's directory is a good thing
to read on the street cars for hot days.
There are some funny things in it.
Aside from the entertaining family

that appear in it from year to year,
there are several chapters this time

Nearly everyone in the city, who is
old enough to run in d<*t, has his or
her name in the ibook and some are
lucky enough to get in twice.
The esteemed morning rival of the
Globe, for instance, seems to have
taken an unfair advantage of the
directory people, by ringing in a lot of
fictitious reporters on whom to blame
some of the airy fictions that appear
from time to time in the luckless sheet.
On page 346 of the octavo edition, as
the eryptogrammer would say, look
for the key word Brill. Then taking
the key number, 3, it is found that
George R. Brill, In plain type, is a re
porter on the Pioneer Press, while a
few lines further down the page it is
stated that there is also one William
H. Brill, in bold face and caps, who |
is a reporter on the Pioneer Press. Of ;
course, inasmuch as Wm. H. is the j
sporting editor, the bold face is pos
sibly permissible, but there have been
several inquiries about the press club
as to the transparency of this new
comer, George R. Brill.
Perhaps no page has on it so many
records of greatness- in various lines as

Officers Elected at the Annual Meet
ing: Last Nig-ht.
The Union Christian Endeavors of
St. Paul held an enthusiastic rally last
evening at Central Presbyterian church
for the dual purpose of conducting the
annual grist of business, and of listen
ing to the reports of those who attend
ed the recent international convention
at Washington, D. C. The church was
fairly well filled.
The first order of business was the
election of officers of the united
societies. The report of the nominating
committee recommended the election of
the following staff of officer*: President;
W. G. Fordyce; first vice, W. Geery;
second vice, L. C. Fowble; third vice
Charles D. Barnett; secretary, Gert
rude Oakes; treasurer, Ira C. Ochler;
Junior superintendent, Mrs. W. G.
Moore. The report of the committee
was unanimously adopted.
Secretary McGeery's report showed
that during the? year there had been a
substantial growth in the enrollment of
the societies comprising the union,
which now conipirised seventeen Pres
byterians, six Methodists, and twelve
Congregational societies. During the
year one or two/ Methodist societies
have withdrawn and gone into the Ep
worth league. Thfe union now consists
of forty-four senior, one Intermediate
and thirty Junior societies.
Rev. A. R. Mcore, retiring president
of the union presided, and during the
evening gave a rreport of the efforts of
the recent national convention at
Washington, toj' further the cause of
Christian eitize«sltip. Rev. Mr. Moore
said that no otiei fully realized the
power the movement was exerting to
ward the renovation of political
methods, and the uplifting of national
citizenship. D. A. Thompson, a dele
gate to the national convention, told
of his experiences at that gathering,
and was followed by Miss Carrie A.
Holbrooke, state secretary of the En
deavors, and State President C. M.
Hunt. The reports of the' delegates
were all enthusiastic, and it was the
unanimous opinion of those who were
at Washington that the convention was
one of the most successful in the his
tory of the Endeavors.
Aim o* the Free Silver Democrat*
of St. Paul.
P. A. Pike, F. L. Nelson and T. R.
Kane were the orators at the meeting
of the Central Bryan and Sewall Dem
ocratic club last night. Between fifty
and sixty men were present, and, with
half a dozen exceptions, they were all
young men. Reports from the wards
Indicated that the ward clubs are or
ganizing to carry the Democratic pri
maries on Saturday evening. Every
committeeman was cautioned to see to
it that voters favorable to the Chicago
ticket and platform go to the polls to
cast their votes for delegates who will
nominate a free silver state ticket.
No report was received from the
First ward, and, to make sure that it
shall be taken care of, a special com
mittee was named to assist the ward
committeeman. The special committee
consists of O. H. O'Neill, John E.
Hearn, Dr. Buckley and Fred L. Nel
son. To look after the silver interests
in the country the chair named Charles
F. McCarron, John Melroee and Gen. R.
W. Johnson. The Tenth ward prim
aries will be cared for by A. Fleming,
Dan Baker and Pat Gleason.
In addition to the gentlemen named
who spoke somewhat at length on the
need for the exercise of non-partisan
patriotism to elect the Bryan-Sewall
ticket, President Caldwell, T. J. Mc-
Dermott, John E. Hearn, T. D. O'Brien
and H. H. Fuller made brief addresses.
Mr. McDermott reported that he has
information which shows that some of
the most popular Democratic leaders in
the state cannot be elected as delegates
to the state convention because they
are not in sympathy with the Chicago
Mr. Hearn expressed the opinion that
the Democrats of St. Paul are prac
tically unanimous for free silver, and
all that is necessary to be done Satur
day is to make a personal effort to get
men to go to the polls and vote for free
silver delegates.
Judge Nelson orated in his usual
eloquent, mellifluous manner, on the
earnestness and unselfishness of the
free silver advocates.
The addresses of Messrs. Pike and
Kane took the ground that unless Bry
an and Sewall shall be elected and a
free coinage law enacted, there will be
a continual grinding down of the
masses, by plutocracy, that will crush
out every feeling which underlies good
citizenship. They were especially fear
ful that the workingman is to get the
worst of life more and more every day
if the present monetary standard is
When the club adjourned it was to
meet at the call of the president.
Arrangements for the Big Labor Day
The Labor Day picnic and parade this year
promises to eclipse all previous efforts. It
has been definitely decided to hold the picnic
at White Bear Lake and the committee having
the matter in charge will spare no exertion
to make it an event that all who attend can
look back to with pride. It is proposed to se
cure the best speakers in the Northwest and
a rad:cal departure will be made this year on
the subjects to be discussed. Probably no
class of people are more interested in the af
fairs of this country than the laboring people
and no citizens of the United States
wish to be enlightened on the vital questions
or the day any more than they do. If the
prosperity of the people depends on a gold
standard, they desire facts and figures to
prove it. If silver Is the panacea, they want
to have It demonstrated beyond a doubt. At
a recent meeting of the trades and labor as
sembly, on motion of one of the delegates it
i was thought best to invite a discussion ' or
j rather a presentation, of the financial ques
tion from both the gold and silver standpoint
The committee having the picnic In charge
therefore, will ask one of the advocates of
16 to 1 to speak on Sept. 7, and will solicit
the Globe, Pioneer Press and Dispatch to
name the speaker on the gold side of the ques
Typographical Union No. 30 will hold its an
, nual election Wednesday from 12 noon until 7
jln the evening, at Assembly hall. Several
j amendments to the constitution and bylaws
will be voted on, among others one affecting
the salaries of several of the offices. Great in
terest is being manifested in the election of
• delegates to the International convention to
j be held at Colorado Springs in September, for
which there are four aspirants, who are work
ing hard to secure the honor.
A Saturday Night Outing- That De
veloped a Free Fig-ht.
Nick Conzen was arrested last evening by
Detective Murnane on a warrant charging
him with asault and battery. The complain
ing witness is W. R. Givens. who alleges
that Conzen and Putney Smith assaulted him
on the night of July 26.
The arrest grows out of an outing given
by the "Jolly Fellows" last Saturday night.
The crowd went on "an excursion down the
river and all of those who had the misfor
tune to participate say the affair was
the warmest thing that ever happened or
! words to that effect. There were about 100
i persons on board, including a score of
women. One wagonload of beer and one small
case of pop were taken on board as lunch
and a.s only half a dozen bottles of the dod
were drunk, and all of the beer consumed
the inference is that none of the party went
thirsty. One of the crew of the steamer, in
speaking of the excursion yesterday said the
crowd warmed up as soon as the boat left
the landing, and kept it up until they came
back. Givens attempted to make peace be
tween a woman and her husband, and was
hit a blow in the face for his Interference.
This started the row, and each person hit
the one standing next to him just for the fun
of the thing. Givens claims that there were
knives and brass knuckles used and the
looks of his face yesterday bore out the al- I
legation. Just hew he picked out the two I
I men as being the ones who assaulted him
i will probably be explained in the police court
this morning. Joseph Hurley and Peter Ol
son, who were on the excursion, were in the
police court yesterday, charged with disor
derly conduct. Hurley went to the work
house for thirty days, and Olson, who bore
the marks of punishment on his face was
discharged. A young fellow who took part
in the excursion has hit on a plan by which
he expects to make quite a chunk of money
the next time the organization gives another
sociable. His scheme is to take a number
of water bicycles, tie them to the end of the
barge and rent them to those who desire to
leave the boat at $2 each. Speaking of the
idea yesterday, he said if he had been hooked
| up with the bicycles on Saturday night toe
I could have realized enough to keep him from
working for the next year.
They Are Tired of the Exorbitant
The shoemakers* union of St. Paul has a
grievance of ita own, and during the past
week has held three special meetings in an
attempt to unravel the problem. A shoe
company has introduced what it calls
a new class of work, which members of the
union claim practically amounts to a reduc
tion in wages of 40 per cent under what they
have been receiving in the past on the same
class of goods. The men who are affected
say they are willing to do the work at the
same scale of wages as paid elsewhere in the
city, but believe it unfair to compel them to
acept such a radical reduction in former
prices, and will insist that they be paid no
less than other manufacturers in St. Paul
pay their employes for the same grade of
Yesterday morning one-half of those em
ployed in the department it affected by the
reduction were notified that their services
would not be required until October. At a
special meeting of the union last evening it
was voted that those who were not laid off
would stand by those who were, and the re
sult is that none of the members who have
been employed on the class of goods on
which the 40 per cent cut was made will go
to work until those who were laid off are
taken back.

iMayor Dornn's Ax Caught Officer
Lawton Yesterday.
Patrolman John Lawton, an old and ef
flcent officer of the police force, was dis
charged yesterday, and, as the orders Issued
by the mayor stated, "for the good of the
service." Lawton was appointed a patrol
man Aug. 5, 1884, and during his twelve
years' service In the department has been
one of the most trusty and capable men on
the force. Recently a charge was made
aaginst him, the first since his appointment,
charging him with ungentlemanly conduct in
making an arrest. The affair was investi
gated by the mayor, but the evidence failed
to show that Lawton had exceeded his au
thority In making the arrest Yesterday aft
ernoon he was summoned to the mayor's of
fice and requested to resign. The reason
given was that his superior officers had pre
ferred charges against him for general in
competency. Lawton refused to .sign the res
ignation which had been prepared for him un
less something more specific was alleged and
proven. The result was that he was told
to consider himself discharged "for the good
of the service."
Officers Are Convinced That the
Shooting? Was Accidental.

killed his son, Charles, Sunday night, was
arraigned in the police court yesterday morn-
Ing.' Investigations made by the police and
coroner verified his statements regarding the
shooting, and on motion of County Attorney
Butler, the case was dismissed, and Kadelker
discharged from custody.

Her Identity Still a Secret.
The woman, evidently demented, who wa3
found with an infant wandering on Missis
sippi street Sunday night, is still at the city
hospital. She gave her name to the hos
pital authorities as Robertson, but further
than this nothing can be obtained as to her
identity. She will be kept at the institution
for treatment and until her friends can be
communicated with.
