When Congressman Kiefer withdrew
from the contest fro the nomination
and left the track clear for Fred Ste
vens, he did it in a way that .will prob
ably worry Mr. Stevens just about as
much as it would have done for the
colonel to remain in the fight. There
is a little bit of inside history con
nected with this transaction that will
have more or less of a bearing on the
contest for the county offices, and the
person upon whom it will bear the
heaviest is Sheriff Chas. E. ChapeL
There is a good big bunch of the
Republican party which believes in
the theory of rotation in office, and
this was the spirit which was invoked
In the contest in which Col. Kiefer
was malletted into political uncon
sciousness. Having used this argu
ment as an instrument to defeat Kie
fer. a good many of the same parties
are looking around and saying.
•'What's the matter with the same
thing for Chapel?" Mr. Chapel was all
along sufficiently familiar with the
operation of such arguments Ln prac
tical politics to foresee that this was
just the kind of an argument that was
likely to be used against him, and he
placed himself in line for a contest by
admitting that "one good term de
serves another," and that there was
no special reason why Kiefer should
not be permitted to try it for another
Of course Republicans say that
Chapel has been a good officer — the on
ly thing they have to kick about is
that he has been an officer too long,
and some one of them are disposed
to push him off. They say that in
the enjoyment of an office reputed to
be worth $20,000 a year, and that for
four years, he should have been able
to lay aside a sufficient number of
dollars of the proper weight and fine
ness to keep the wolf from the door
until some of the other boys have had
a chance at the business, and whether
he gets the nomination or the go-by,
it may be depended upon that the con
test will be a vigorous one. The sher
iff is reported to be in a position to
make the kind of a campaign Lhat is
usually successful' in Republican pri
maries, but he has for opponents two
or three of the most active hustlers
in the city, and if he wins it will not
be In any sense a walk-away. Col.
Milham, of the Midway district, is
something of a campaigner, himself,
and as for "Erney" Mabon, he will
net wait for a base on balls, but will
take every chance that cornea, and

John Norrish, of Hastings, and Judge
Ueland, of Minneapolis, were at Nat
icnal Democratic headquarters yester
day, and gave cheering intelligence to
the party workers there assembled. For
Dakota county, he said the Democrats
were as strong as ever. There i& little
to be hoped for by the Republicans in
that county in the best of times, and
this year it is not likely they will be
more fortunate. Hennepin county,
Judgo Upland said, is making rapid
strides in the sound money movement.
It" the free coinage advocates depend
upon, ten thousand majority in that
county to elect the Lind ticket, as T.
J. McDermott declared at the meeting
of the state central Democratic commit
tee the other day, then the Lind people
may as well give up the fight, ts the
opinion of Judge Ueland. Hennepin
is making better headway with the
sound money movement than Ramsey
county, but the latter will be on the
highway to aggressive organization in
a few days.

The Republican primaries last even
ing excited little interest. The fact
that there is no contest in the con
gressional race, since the withdrawal
of Col. Kiefer, and the storm ofi the
early evening, kept many from, the
'polling places. The light vote enabled
the judges and clerks to make quick
work of the count. Two hundred and
seventy-two delegates were chosen, of
; which 257 were from the city, to meet
;in convention this morning to select
■seventy-one delegates to the congres
sional convention, which will be held
;at Taylor's Falls next Saturday. To
; day's convention, which will meet in
Market hall at 11 o'clock, will be a
I short one doubtless. There will be
nothing for the delegates to do but to
indorse "the national platform, adopt
one of similar tenor, and then choose
delegates to Taylor's Falls, who will
vote for the only candidate in the
field. Following is the list of dele

People's party primaries were held
last night for the purpose of electing 1
13S delegates to attend the county con
vention, which will be held in Market
hall on Monday. That convention is
j called to nominate a full county and
j legislative ticket, and delegates to the
state convention, which will be as
sembled at Minneapolis, Aug. 26. To
morrow night the delegates to the
county convention will meet at As
sembly hall and consider some of the
fusion propositions made the People's
party by the Democrats. Some of the
Populists are willing to give the Demo
crats the county and legislative offices
in exchange for an indorsement of
Clarke for congress, and Walsh for
judge. But there is decided objection
to this plan by others who are in favor
of the nomination of a full legislative
ticket, or at least a fair division of
the offices. Especially is this sentiment
indulged by the friends of Benn Davia,
who wants a nomination for the riis-
I trict bench. Davis is now a court com
j missioner and as his term ■will soon ex
pire he is anxious to have another
berth in the county.
On the other hand the Democrats
would rather do almost anything than
give Clarke an indorsement. They
realize that in order to make sure of
defeating the Republican congressional
| candidate they must have a candidate
| who can unite all the Democrats of the
i county. Clarke, even with the indorse
j ment of the Democratic convention,
j wouldn't come near defeating Stevens.
This phase of the .question will be
| thoroughly discussed by the Populist
j delegates tonight, and it is possible
that some arrangement will be made
whereby the Democrats will not be
i asked to indorse Clarke. If this mat
! ter can be arranged and Clarke will
i withdraw, the Populists, it is hinted,
can have a much bigger slice of the
nomination pie than they now ask for.

GOES BfIGH TO Jftlii
REV. J. C. HULL BOUND OVER TO
AWAIT THE URAKD JURY'S
HIS DAUGHTER ON THE STAND.
HER TESTIMONY, IN PART, COR
ROBORATIVE OF THAT Ui \ i:\
BY MRS. 11l 1,1,.
HIS frUIBHIi OFFER NOTHING,
Although the Rev. Gentleman Want
ed to Go on the Stand— Mm Hull's
ChareeN Are Denied.
The examination of Rev. J. C. Hull,
who is charged with poisoning his wife
came to an end, yesterday afternoon,
in the police court. The attendance
at the examination which was resumed
at 2 o'clock was larger, if anything,
than on Thursday. Three-fourth's of
the spectators were women and among
the number were a score or more of
young women who listened with an air
of great interest to the testimony. Mrs.
Hull went early to the court room and
with her was her daughter Slanclie, a
sweet looking and very intelligent child,
as was shown later ln the giving of
her evidence. Mrs. Hull looked tired
and careworn and during the after
noon kept her face partly concealed
by a black fan. Before the examina
tion commenced Mrs. Hull asked that
Blanche be allowed to remain outside
the court room, and County Attorney
Butler readily granted the request.
Mr. Hull was brought into the court
room by deputy sheriff and took his
place- behind his counsel without a
word to them, and appeared as if un
conscious of the spectators. He did
not look at or toward the place where
his wife was sitting and she did hot
even glance in his direction.
It was expected that Mrs. Hull would
continue her tale of woe, but immedi
ately on taking the stand, Mr. Butler
announced that Mr. Pierce might cross
examine the witness. Mr. Pierce,
however, said he had no questions to
ask and Mrs. Hull toes a seat beside
Mrs. Quayle, who has been with her
since the arrest of Hull. County At
torney Butler called Blanche Hull to
, the stand and immediately there was
a craning 1 of necks as the child walked
;to the witness stand. She was not at
all flustered and answered the ques
! tions put to her, and told her story in a
' concise manner and made an excellent
witness. Hull watched his daughter
| intently during the time she was on
: the stand, but made no outward sign
[ of his feelings as the evidence from the
1 lips of his child poured forth with only
;now and then an interruption from the
; county attorney. She said:
j I remember being called into the house by
!my father on Aug. 5, who said, "Mamma
another sick spell and wanted me to
come in the bedroom." Papa waa in the
sitting room. He went for the doctor and
came back. Hb had no talk with mamma
after I came in, but went for the doctor right
away. My mamma talked to me while he
.was away. He returned by the back way,
and I saw him at the kitchen door and told
him mamma was suspicious of him and I'd
lib© to prove her suspicions unfounded. I
asked him to let me see the inside of the
trunk. He conseated readily and opened the
trunk. Inside was a bottle of parlor paste.
It waa in the corner of the tray. The bottla
was in the top tray, which is divided into
; While this was going on the mother
shaded her face with a black fan. It
was a strange scene.
He took another bottle out of the trunk
and put it in his pocket. I asked him not to
tfo that. He rushed into the pantry and
seized the bottle of Warmer's Safe cure. My
mamma hearing the noise came out and asked
what was the matter, but I could not answer.
She tried to take the bottle of Safe cure from
him, not knowing of the one tn his pocket.
I wasn't with them all the time, but papa
said if mamma would let him go this time he
would do better. He dragged mamma out in
the yard and back again.
Mamma kept telling me to go and get some
one. I didn't want to, but finally I went
after Mr. Anderson. I don't know what he
said, but it waa then thai papa wanted to. go
for a doctor, and.-Mr. Anderson wouldn't let
him go. Then mamma told me to go for the
doctor. I went and 1 met the doctor, and when
we returned Mr. Anderson was at the bed
room door and papa was inside. Part of the
time I stayed out in the sitting room, after
that, and I heard no more talking between
"They sent for the officer and no one but
Mr. Avison came before the officer arrlvad."
Mr. Butler handed her the bottle of War
ner's Safe Cure and she recognized it. He
handed her a two ounce phial containing a
She said it was the one her father had put
in his Docket.
This ended the direct examination.
On cross-examination she was asked what
became of the bottle of Warner's cure after
her father went to the closet for^ It
"He had it under his coat and loosened his
hold on it when I grabbed it."
"Did you see the bottle after he hid it?"
"Yes, I gave it to Dr. Hawkins after papa
When the litUe girl was discharged
from the stand, the prisoner endeav
ored to stop her as she passed him and
whispered, "Blanche kiss papa."
The girl swept by him.
Carl Anderson was called, as a wit
ness, and testified:
"I lire at Winifred street. I was called to
Rev. Hull's house at about 7 o'clock. I en
tered the back door."
"Who did you see?"
"I saw the mother, Blanche and Hull
struggling on the floor. I asked what was the
trouble. Mrs. Hull said Hull waa trying to
put poison in her medicine. Hull had a bot
tle in his hand, the big bottle. I placed Mrs.
Hull on the bed. Mrs. Hull told me to
watch Hul 1 so that he did not escape. Hull
went into the kitchen to get a drink. I
watched him. Hull said he would go for a
doctor. Mrs. Hull said, 'No. Blanche would
go.' Hull then tried to go with Blanche.
Blanche went for the doctor and Hull went
into his wife's bedroom door and sat on the
bed. Hun moved about uneasily, and when
the doctor came I left him. Mrs. Hull and
Blanche in. the bedroom. Finally the doctor
told me to sit in the door and watch Hull
and see that he did not leave the house.
The doctor said he was going for the police.
Hull said he wanted to see Mrs. Hull alone,
bnt Mrs. Hull would not allow thiai Mr.
Avison came later on and he. with the doctor,
Mrs. Hull and Blanche, had a ooayersation.
The policeman came and I told him the story.
Another policeman, Mr. McKinley, came and
I went home. Blanche went out with the

big bottle of Warner's Safe Cure. She got

'nP)f.iW. J. Hawkins was next sworn,
.and testifies in corroboration. Said he:
I was reading the papers when Hull ap
proached and told me I had better come up to
the house as hii wife was having a vomiting
spell. He said hlsr wife said that I waa in
collusion with him to poison her. I met
Blanche on the way to the house. She was
excited and I djd not quite get the drift of

that she hojfcd r could save her papa from
Rev. Avison, of Clinton Avenue
church, aLao corroborated.
Officer McKlnley, called, told of the
j Di*. J. L* Rqthrock said he received
| the bottles, referred to, by the officer,
"I tested the contents of the Warner Safe
i cure bottle for arsenic. There was arsenic in
lit. I found a visible white sediment in the
: bottom of tha and when weighed it
1 weighed from six to seven grains and was
, arsenic. A chemical analysis of the liquid
.also contained arsenic charged to Us full
capacity ; about half a grain to the ounce.
i There were between seven and eight ounces
of the liquid. I have examined Warner's
I Safe Cure as sold by druggists for arsenic,
lit contains none. In the large bottle contaln
jing the white sediment the milky fluid and
; sediment contained arsenic. In fact, it was a
| solution of arsenic. I examined the box of
i powders. That was also arsenic."
"How much arsenic was in the box given
you by the policeman?"
"About 450 grains, and ten grains in the
Warner's Safe Cure."
I Mrs. Quayle, of 357 East Robie was sworn.
!"I know Mr. and Mrs. Hull. I slept with
; Mrs. Hull on the Monday preceding the ar-
I rest. I saw Mr. Hull preparing coffee for
i Mrs. Hull Tuesday morning. He poured the
I coffee into a cup and brought It to his wife
j who was abed."
County Attorney Butler stated
ithat the state rested and Mr.
1 Pierce asked for a few mo
j ments' time to consult with
his client. The court directed an in
. termtesion of five minutes and Mr. Hull
j accompanied by Mr. Pierce and Mr.
i Latta, his attorneys, withdrew from
I the court room. When Judge Twohy
: again took the bench Mr. Pierce said
\ that, speaking for Mr. Hull, he would
|at this time waive examination. This
t coarse, he said, had been advised by
:both Mr. Latta and himself, although
Mr. Hull was not of the i same vi«w.
;He had, however, left the matter to
; his attorneys and they advised this,
| course. Mr. Pierce thought, as the ex
: amination was only preliminary, that
after hearing the evidence of the wlt
. nesses the court would hardly be able
Ito discharge the defendant under the
j circumstances, and the defense would
wait until the final trial to introduce
any evidence. As to the relations of
i Hull with his wife's niece, which was
brought out during the hearing, he
; desired to say on behalf of Mr. Hull
that the charge was false. The only
explanation which Mr. Hull could offer
. was that his wife was in a state of de
lusion. As to the poisoning charge it
was simply; a struggle through which
Mr. Hull had been a party for the past
fifteen years, and was due to the men
tal condition of his wife.
Something was said about fixing the
bail by the court, but Mr. Butler chip
ped in and stated that the bail would
have to be fixed" by one of the judges
of the district court. Judge Twohy
then announced that the defendant
would be held to, await the action of
the grand jury, and the spectators
drifted out of the court room. In leav
ing her seat Mr 3. Hull was obliged to
pass within two feet of her husband,
but neither appeared to notice the other.
Mr. Hull had a short conversation with
Rev. Mr. Alison and was then taken
to the county jail by a deputy sheriff.
Mr. Pierce, in speaking of the case
after the adjournment at court, said
he had never appeared as counsel in a
case, before where he was obliged: to
keep his mouth shut and not cross ex
amine witnesses. The chances are, he
said, that Hull would be obliged to
remain in- jail until the meeting of the
grand jury in October, as he had no
friends who would or could give bonds
for his appearance. The evidence, Mr.
Pierce thought, was very strong against
Hull but his client had told him that
he was not guilty of the charge and
he was hopeful that the trial of the
case would prove this statement to be
Mr. Butler i asked that the exhibits
introduced in the case be kept by the
clerk of the court until they were
wanted in the district court, and Judge
Twohy directed that the bottles and
other exhibits be carefully marked and
sealed up by the clerk.
SOMERS' SCHEME FAVORED.
St. I':iul Assessment Plan Popular
W. A. Somers' real estate valuation
scheme which was adopted in St. Paul
this year has been submitted to lead
ing citizens of Chicago as well as the
board of county commissioners, and
has met with general approval. The
Chicago Post recently devoted two
columns to a description of the plan
whiGh is already familiar to citizens
of St. Paul, illustrated with diagrams
showing the actual workings of the
plan. It says after describing the plan
President Healy, of the board of
county commissioners, has examined
the St. Paqi scheme, and thinks so
well of it he.wants owners generally
to become familiar with its details. Its
adoption can in.no way affect existing
conditions further than to provide a
perfectly fair and equitable assessment
of real property, , In St Paul its adop
tion was followed by a scaling down of
Values from the fictitious figures where

where they gravitated under more nor

is as much undervalued as it was over
valued there* And this method of find

any parcel in. that block, seems so di
rect and simple and its application to

An application for a writ of habeas
corpus was made before Judge Willis
yesterday in the ease of Thomas Wills,
who was recently committed to the
county jail on the charge of forgery.
The writ is returnable at 10 a. m. to
day. The application seta forth that
the evidence upon which Wills was
committed was insufficient and that
the instrument which he is charged
with forging is not of a character to
constitute the crime of forgery as de

Another Bicycle Case Adjudicated
by R.oi4«»J Street Officers.
Charles Jo#es,,y. Glaser and W. H.
Glover were in the police court yester
day, charged witfi violating the bicycle
ordinance. Jbnea^ forfeited the $3.50 he
put up for bail and the other two were
fined $1 each:
The case jagai*st H. A. Pratt, ar
rested some*' dajfe ago by Patrolman !
Stottz, was oh the tab, but opposite j
his name were -the words, "not brought
In." Clerk ConTby said that Pratt, he
understood, had been arrested and had
left his bike at the Rondo station for
bail. He did not appear in court to
answer and later called at the station
and took hi* wheel away. The case
had been continued until today and
then passed by the judge as there waa
no appearance of the prisoner, in court.
DGflflN WAS WROTH
TO THINK THAT THE BOARD OF
PUBLIC WORKS STILL, KX
AND MADE ASSESSMENTS.
"ADS" IN THE GLOBE AHOLSED
THE WORTHY MAYOR'S
SOME CAUSTIC LETTERS PASSED,
In Which the Potmen Seem to Drift
Apart Rather Than Toward
In his efforts to establish the validity
of the law creating a commissioner of
public works, in advance of what the
supreme court may have to say on the
subject. Mayor Doran keeps pegging
away at the board of public works.
That body seems to be worrying hia
honor not a little. When the mayor
picked up his G1 o b c Thursday morn
ing and ran his eye over the official
publications, he noted two that made
his partisan blood boil. They were
simple notices of assessment— one for
the paving of Fifth street, and the
other for constructing, relaying and re
pairing wooden sidewalks estimate No.
1, 1896. The notices informed all in
terested, persons that the board of pub-
Ik: works would meet at the city halL
on certain dates to make assessments:
for the improvements specified. Both
notices were signed "R, L. Gorman.
The proverbial red flag never caused
greater irritation in the bosom of the
masculine bovine, than did the publi
i cation of these notices arouse in the
breast of the mayor. It was but a
matter of a few minutes for his honor
to indite the following communication
to the board of public works, which
was delivered at the office of the board
Aug. 20, 1896.— To R. L. Gorman, J. 0.
Quinby, Win. Banholzer and R. N. Hare.
Gentlemen: I enclose herewith two notices
ox assessment that appeared in this morning's
issue of the Globe and purport to coma
from the "Board of Public Works"; and to be
official in character.
If the publication of the said notices was
authorized by you, I consider it in direct
violation of the understanding upon which,
under date of Aug. 10, 1896, you were granted
the use of court room No. 4. The under
standing with Custodian Dayton, which I
believe was thoroughly understood by your
selves, was that you should be allowed to
occupy the court room in question as pri
vate citizens for the sake of closing up your
private business aa suck citizens. Any
further act on your part, as alleged mem
bers of the "Board of Public Works," will
not be tolerated by me, and will result in
an order to the custodian, instructing him
not to allow you, even as private citizens,
to occupy any rooms in this building.
— F. B. Doran, Mayor.
Upon receipt of the foregoing, Presi
dent Gorman, of the board of public
works, conferred with Jared How the
counsel of the board, and as a result
of the conference, the following reply
was written and dispatched to the may
Aug. 21, 1896. Hon. P. B. Doran, Mayor.
Dear Sir: Your communication of the- 20th
inst. is received. We have been advised by
counsel that aur plain duty is to continue
to transact the business of the Board of
Public Works, so far as we shall be allowed
to do so. The notices referred to by you
were published pursuant to that advice, and
as a part of our business. If it comes to a
question between abandoning our duty as of
ficers of the public, as we understand it, and
leaving the court house, we will secure aa
office forthwith in some private building.
— R. L. Gorman,
Prest. Board of Public Works.
The mayor was absent from the city
hall yesterday, and presumably did not
receive the reply. President Markham,
of the board of aldermen, was the act
ing mayor, but he took no action in
In view of the written notification
signed by Custodian Dayton, inform
ing the members of the board of public
works that by advice of the mayor
they would not be disturbed in their
present quarters until the courts con
vene in October — except during the G.
A. R. encampment week. The action of
the mayor is peculiar, not to say un
warranted, so say the members of the
board. To bear out their position they
point to the notification In question,
which reads as follows:
Aug. 10, 1896. To R. L.. Gorman, 3. C. quin
by, Wm. Banholzer and R. N. Hare.
Gentlemen: I am advised by the mayor to
notify you that you will not be disturbed, in
your present quarters (court room No. 4)
until October next, when the district court
meets; provided, however, that your quarters
will be subject to such occupancy during
Grand Army encampment week as other
rooms in the city hall building.
— F. H. Dayton, Custodian.
No allusion i» made to the nature of
the business which may be transacted,
and as to the mayor's intimation that
there had been any additional "un
derstanding with Custodian Dayton,"
which he believed, was "thoroughly
understood" by the members of the
board, they positively deny, that they
had any understanding with the custo
dian other than that expressed in the
