Are the Like-ly Nominee-* of the
Sound Money Democrat!*— Michael
Dorau'M Return,
"Bryan is being Kept In the East for
a bluff, and not because he is helping
the free silver cause or making votes
for his party." X>. W. Lawler says:
"if the election should be held today
Bryan would not carry a single East
ern or middle -state, '■ continued Mr.
Lawler, "and I believe he would lose
West Verginia, Kentucky and Alabama
as well. Bryan has failed to make any
impression in the East. If it werenot
for the appearance of the movement,
the suggestion that their candidate had
been frozen out, Chairman Jones and
others of the National committee,
would have brought their candidate
West long ago. It only remains for the
honest Democrats of the South and
West to repudiate the false doctrines
represented by Bryan and the platform
on which he stands to compass the de
feat of his Populistic following.
"The genuine Democrats of the na
tion are up and active. Every state,
with the possible exception of three,
will be represented at the Indianapolis
convention. The popular demand is
for a third ticket. Senator Jones was
wrongfully quoted when it was report
ed he was opposed to naming a third
ticket. Honest Democrats who are
opposed to McKinleyism, who cannot
subscribe to Bryan's views, yet who
believe the party organization should
be preserved, are back of this third
party movement, and will vote for the
Indianapolis nominees. The Bryanites
will be amazed at the number of Demo
crats who are now reckoned as free
silver men, but who, by reason of their
environment, are unwilling to de
clare themselves, are in favor of the
National Democratic party and will
support its candidate. In Minnesota,
although I have been absent so long
that I am not in close touch with the
situation, I find the free silver move
ment weaker than a month ago. My
private mafladvices assure me of that.
On the contrary the sound money
Democrats are organizing all over the
state and there's growing interest in
the movement. I doubt not that a third
state ticket would be hailed with joy
by thousands of Democrats in Minne
"The nominees at I»dianap_lis will
likely be Senator Palmer or Gen. Bragg
with Gen. Buckner; "Of __e_t_Ck*y. for a
running mate. Sentiment seems to be
largely in favor of Senator Palmer.
Both candidates will. undoubtedly come
from the West to add strength to the
National Democratic movement for
sound money. The East is aiready
solid, and does not want" a, candidate
on the national ticket,. . The.rn.ention of
my own name ' in connection with the
vice presidency, • orginated with Gen.
Bragg, of Wisconsin, and was accepted
by me as a compliment to tbe Demo
crats of Minnesota — nothing more. I
am in no sense a candidate. I favor
Gen. Buckner's nomination, believing
such action would carry Kentucky for
sound money. The Minnesota delegat
ion will probably leave for Indianapolis
Sunday night. Besides the delegates,
I am informed many .interested. Demo
crats will attend from Minnesota. There
can be no question as to the- sincerity
of the sound money movement, and the
attendance at the Indianapolis gather
ing, and the platform that will be
adopted, will prove that the Demo
cratic party has lost nothing of its
principles or vigor of enmity to Popu
listic schemes.
"I did not call on Chairman Jones, of
the national committee whiTe fn Chicago
on Saturday. I understand he,iias read
me out of the party and that I have
been cast out of the councils of the
committee— by Chairman Jones. Very
good. But I am stitt national com
mitteeman from Minnesota.. I was
elected for a term of four years. The
national committee has other business
besides the management of this cam
paign. When this campaign is ended,
I will report at the meetings of the
committee to assist in the** discharge
of its duties. After the, election. Chair
man Jones and colleagues will find
they need a few souad- -Demecrats to
assist them out of the pit they are now
digging. Chairman* Jones has rio legal
right to declare my seat vacjant, and
appoint a successor. Senator Grcrman
suggested such action at. the New York
meeting, but because of Senator Till
man's opposition, who declared such
proceedings illegal and beyond the
powers of the committee, the edict of
ex-communication was. withheld. Now,
Senator Jones constitutes himself a
high court, and reads —me -out of the
committee and the party. Senator Jones
reminds me of Dickens' character in
"David Copperfleid," Mr. Dick, who
was forever building kites and present
ing them to David. Mr. Dick was a
simple-minded, nice old chap, who
meant no harm, whose intentions were
good, etc. Ditto, Senator Jones. By
the way Senator Jones has given it
out in an enterview that he has IgOO.OOO
.to spend in the campaign. Minnesota
Populists would better- hasten if they
expect to get part of that fund for
use in Minnesota. They will need it."

Mr. Lawler had nothing to say con
cerning the use of nis name as the
possible successor of Hoke Smith, re
tiring secretary of the interior. "I
have no idea how my name came to be
used in that connection," he said. "It
is not probable that the matter went

at New York on the steamship St,
Louis, which is due in New York to
day. Although his plans are not known
it is hinted he will make a hurried trip
to Washington before coming West to
make some definite arrangement for
the appointment of Postmaster Castle's
successor. Those who know say Mr.
Doran returns to America earlier than
expected because of his wife's desire,
and not for any political purpose. The
postmastership, it is hinted, will not
be the subject of any communication,
verbal or otherwise, between Mr.

that he cannot be removed by the ac

Manager Owens Has a New Topical
H. W. Watson, or a man giving his name
as such, made a bluff at the Adams Express
company's office yesterday and demanded $26
for a valise which he claimed to own, but
which had been handed over to some one
else. About ten days ago three satchels were
received at the office of the express company
from Terre Haute, Ind. The day after the
arrival of the grips three men called and In
quired about them. The clerk informed the
trio that they had arrived, but as none of
the party had money enough to pay the
charges due, they didn't get them. The ex
press receipts were taken to an employment
agency and put up as collateral for tickets
and charges for the party to Rich Valley.
On Friday three men who were supposed to
be the ones who called for the satchels the
day after they arrived stepped into the ex
press office and demanded them. The spokes
man of the party said they had been given
no receipts at Terre Haute and one of the
assistant clerks turned over the grips on
payment of the charges. One of the men
signed for his own and Watson's valise and
Saturday Watson himself dropped in and
called for his. He was told that the grip
was gone and was taaken by his friend, but
this did not satisfy Watson and he demanded
$25 damages for the property. It savored so
much of a jcb that Manager Owens wouldn't
stand for it and told Watson so in pretty
strong language.
First of the Interlake Race* at Min
Today will witness the first of the inter
lake yacht races at Minnetonka, to determine
the supremacy of the Minnetonka or White
Bear yacht. Both the Alfrida and the third
Nushka have been spending the week since
their arrival at the lake in famliarizing them
selves with the course, wind and water cur
rents and the short course over which it has
been decided to have the races. This is a
triangular course directly in front of the
club house, from which the entire course can
be seen. Three times around are required for
the ten miles.
Special arrangements have been made for
the entertainment of the large number of
guests expected from St. Paul. The club
house has been tastefully trimmed with flags
and pennants and music will enliven the
hours of suspense. The Victor, the trimmest
and handsomest steamer on the lake will
be placed at the disposition of the visitors
Tomorrow evening there will be a club party
given at the club house, which will be a very
gay affair, and Wednesday evening there will

4 roused Tlmh. to the Highest Pitch
of Enthusiasm— School Chil
dren Take Part.
Forty-flve little girls raised a big
American flag to the breeze last even
ing in the presence of a thousand spec
tators assembled on the Bradley street
hill in the First .ward. The flag and
the staff supporting it were donated
by the citizens of the First ward, who
selected this commanding site upon
which to float the stars and stripes in
token of greeting to the Grand Army
of the Republic. It was indeed an in
teresting occasion. Assembled about
the platform that encircled the base
of the flag pole were at least 1,000 peo
ple. Nearly 700 of this number were
school children from the Cleveland and
John Ericsson schools, who, under the
direction of Mr. Congdon, 'the musical
Instructor, sang the national anthems
with a spirit that would have done
credit to as many veterans. Upon the
platform were seated the speakers of
the evening, XT. S. Senator C. K. Davis,
Gen. E. C. Mason, Capt. H. A. Castle,
Albert Scheffer, Rev. C. P. Nelson and
Rev. W. W. Lewis, the pastor of the
Arlington Hills Presbyterian church.
The school children opened the exr
ercises with "Marching Through
Georgia." Rev. Mr. Nelson offered an
invocation after which the children
sang "Columbia." Then Rev. W. W.
Lewis, who«_cted* as chairman, de
livered a brie, address in which he
paid tribute td^th*' patriots who fought
and bled for '-their country. At the
conclusion of •"the address, 45 of the
school girls, representing the 45 states
©f the Union, "seized the rope attached
to the flag and h*uled it to the top of
the pole. It lsls*i . handsome flag, 15 by
25 feet in size, 'j^ ft unfurled to the
breeze, Senator Davis, who was intro
duced by RevJ'Mn Lewis stepped for
ward to a p_int' "directly under the
stars and strides, but before he said a
word the multitude gave three rousing
cheers for the American flag. The sub
ject of Senator Davis' address was
"Liberty." It is ahnost needless to say
that it was an 1 elo-quent effort. In part.
Senator Davi^said:
"Standing lender, the protection of
this flag ' as it is kissed by the west
wind, I am profoundly Impressed with
the dignity of this occasion. My mind
runs back to scenes like this that oc
curred thirty-five years ago. My fel
low citizens, there is a symbol in every
thing, even in the ornaments of life.
This flag is a symbol of liberty. It was
created out of the love of liberty. It
was ordained by our forefathers 125
years ago. It has floated over land
and sea, and to all nations it has meant
"When first it arose it was like the
star of the East, whose rays did not
extend beyond the Alleghanies. But,
as it rose higher and higher, new stars
were added as new states were brought
under its fold, and their rays now
shine upon the shores of Europe ort one
side, and on the other tfiey penetrate
the dark mysteries of ancient, Asia, To
all people, it has ever been the star of
the redemption."
In dwelling upon the virtue of patri
otism, Senator Davis said: "The ob
ject of all that you do politically is to
preserve the liberty of yourselves and
your fellow citizens. But all men have
not the same opportunities. This
ought not to be so, and under the oper
ation of American institutions, it is be
coming gradually less so. But in one
respect we are all equal. We do not
need the learning of the schools to
teach us patriotism!
"Next week you will behold a mul
titude of old soldiers marching through
the streets of this city. They are now
gray. They are now, many of them,
feeble and infirm. I remember when it
was not so. I remember when they
swung gaily down; the streets between
the smiles and tears of sweethearts
and youthful' wives. When you see
them now rerrrbrnber what you owe to
them. If you ejijoy your present
liberty remember %t was they who gave
it to you. m "
"Yet they ar. b_t a fragment of the
Union's mighty army. Many have
passed away .'' T_**y are marshaled in
the impregnable r ranks of death. They
need no reveille _.**■ wake them from
their morning' steep, no taps to deepen
their slumber." Then turning towards
the children cftrstet'-ed in the space at
the right of 'the^ platform, Senator
Davis proceeded: ■
ty-five yeanf * hence these little
children will 1 . Be administering the
affairs of tfes nation; that the
boys will be your judges, your
senators and "your generals and
that your girls will be the mothers of
the nation?"
Senator Davis concluded his speech
with an earnest appeal to the patriot
ism of his hearers, and congratulated
them upon the spirit they had mani
fested, "which had led to such a beauti
ful and memorable occasion.
Rev. Mr. Lewis next introduced Capt.
H. A. Castle, whose subject, he said,
would be "Our Flag." Capt. Castle ex
plained that he had not intended to
speak, and was therefore not equipped
with a prepared speech, but that in the
absence of Gen. Mason, who had not
arrived yet, he thought that he could
find inspiration enough in his subject
to say a few words. The captain quot
ed from the famous speech of Louis
Kossuth, made at the Bunker Hill
monument, ten years before the out
break of the Rebellion, and then added :
"We are far away from the Bunker
Hill, monument, which drew forth the
fire of Kossuth's eloquence, but we
have -before lis an emblem equally
beautiful, impressive and patriotic be
fore which we also can 'bow, adore and
hope.' "
Capt. Castle! pictured the suffering
and hardships, endured by the boys in
blue, and pa iq t ', tribute 'to their bravery
ari_ unselfishness^ He described how,
in the darkest* hours, the sight of the
flag cheered tfeetti? It seemed as if its
stars had acquired _ divine effulgence.
In conclusion 3 "jCapj_ Castle quoted the
inspiring lines of ihe late Oliver Wen
dell Holmes, dedicated to the stars and
stripes. " -tl «a
... C. J. Palm|r followed with some
original versus, dedicated to "Our
Flag." Theft occurred the prettiest
spectacle of the evening.
Little Ethel Terry, a ten-year-old
pupil of the John * Ericsson school, as
cended the iftatf^rm bearing in her
hands a beautiful, standard of colors.
In behalf of the children of the First
ward, she presented the standard to
Department Commander J. J. Mc-
Cardy, of the Minnesota G. A. R. In
receiving the -handsome testimonial
from the hands of the child, Com
mander- McCardy .hanked her and- all
the children in the ,*most earnest man
ner and assured Ethel that the colors
would be displayed at the state O. A.
R. headquarters at the state capitol
and' preserved by the _ep_*rt_i._t as a
p-oecious gift
At this juncture. Gen. _T.'*C'' Mason
arrived, and was at once presented.
Gen. Mason's address was brief, but
strikingly eloquent. In glowing lang
uage he eulogized the stars and stripes,
the emblem of liberty, that waved over
George Washington and his intrepid
followers that night they crossed the
ice-blocked Delaware. It was the same
flag under which our half-naked soldiers
suffered the bitter cold at Valley Forge.
It vas the same flag that fluttered in
the crisp October air at Yorktown, when
Lord Cornwallis surrendered. It was
the same flag that inspired the Ameri
can soldiers in Mexico.
"And coming down to the civil war,"
continued Gen. Mason, "how powerful
its influence there? It was greater than
the most earnest appeals. When the
flag went forward, retreating men
would turn and follow it to victory or
death. Once when 100 Union men were
liberated from Libby prison to be taken
North in exchange for Southern pris
oners, as they left the prison and reach
ed an eminence, they saw a steamboat
moored at the shore, at the end of which
fluttered a small American flag. The
instant their eyes beheld the glorious
emblem, the whole 100 of them fell upon
their faces and cried:
"T thank God! I thank God!"
"It meant much to these men. It
meant liberty. It meant a country.
Up then with this banner! Wherever
it leads, a million of free men shall
follow, and a nation of free men shall
perish from the earth when that flag
shall be trailed in the dust!"
After short speeches by Albert Schef
fer and Rev. C. P. Nelson, the gather
ing adjourned. A reception was tend
ered to the speakers at the residence
of C. K. Sharood.
Bell Boy at the Metropolitan in Hot
John Allard, a bell hop at the Metro
politan, left his job and the hotel
Saturday evening. It is, perhaps,
fortunate for the proprietor's guests
now at the hotel and those who intend
ed visiting there during the encamp
ment that Allard quit work. He had
only been employed a few days but.
his work was strong and he did not
overlook a bet. Saturday evening Mrs.
McClure, of St. Louis, who is stopping
at the hotel, .went down to dinner and
left a gold watch and chain, ring and
pin on the dresser in her room. Her
maid put the jewelry in the drawer
and strewed a few handkerchiefs over
the plant. As she was doing this Al
lard softly opened the door and seeing
the maid explained that the bell had
been rung and inquired what she want
ed. She told him it must be a mistake
and Allard said there must be some
thing wrong with the enunciator and
left. The maid went down to dinner
and when Mrs. McClure returned she
missed the jewelry, but was quite re
lieved when the maid informed her
that the valuables had been placed In
the drawer. To satisfy herself Mrs.
McClure looked for the property, but
it was gone. She rang the bell and
Allard promptly answered. She in
formed him of the loss and told him to
send Manager Barker to the room. Al
lard did so and before Mr. Barker re
turned to the office he had answered
another bell. This time a guest ordered
sixty cents worth of drinks and gave
Allard a $5 bill to settle the bill. Allard
came down stairs took his hat and left
the hotel. The guest waited some time
and then made inquiries about the
change coming to him. The actions of
Allard and his sudden disappearance
settled the matter in the mind of Mr.
Barker, and the police were notified.
The youth was found at the Richelieu
hotel on Seventh street yesterday
morning. The chain and pin belonging
to Mrs. McClure were found under the
pillow in the room occupied by Allard,
but the ring and watch are still miss
ing. Allard stood pat when arrested
and said he had bought the pin and
chain in Chicago. He was arraigned in
the police court and his case continued
to Wednesday. Allard is about eighteen
years old and claims to have friends
in Chicago.
No Arrests Made as Yet In Elmo's
Up to a late hour last night no arrests had
been made in the Curlin murder case. The
Stillwater authorities are devoting all their
time to the case, but have been unable to
learn anything which would lead to the ap
prehension of the parties concerned. Any
number of clues which promised well on the
start have been run down, but the officers
have only been put to much trouble without
securing any information of value.
Sheriff Smith, of Washington county, visit
ed St. Paul yesterday afternoon and talked
over the case with Chief of Detectives
Schweitzer. Seen last evening Chief Schweit
zer said there was nothing new in the case.
Sheriff Smith had called on him in relation to
the case, and he had promised to do all that
he could to assist in the capture of the
gang. The officers, he said, were somewhat
at sea owing to the fact that no description
of the murderer or his accomplice could be
secured. Mrs. Curlin, the only witness, so far
as known, only saw one man, and this one
under very trying circumstances. Her de
scription of the one who did the shooting was
very meager, and gave the officers little, if
anything, to go on. The country, he said, was
filled with gangs of thieves, who were none
too good to commit the crime, and the only
thing that surprised him was that there were
not more of the same crimes committed. He
was of the opinion that the men concerned in
the murder were not strangers, either to
Curlin or that locality, and from what he
had been told about the circumstances, in
clined to the belief that the men had known
that Curlin had considerable money about
the house and had carefully planned the rob

Death of Mrs. Frank Illicit.
The announcement of the death of Mrs.
Frank Buell on Sunday at Mountalnvllle, N.
V,, will be a painful surprise to many St.
Paul people. Mrs. Buell was the oldest
daughter of Mrs. M. G. Worley, of this city,
and. although born in Baltimore, spent her
girlhood in St. Paul, where she was a social
favorite at the time of her marriage in 1876
to Mr. Buell, then a merchant here. Soon
after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Buell
moved to New York and for the past two
years they have lived at Mountainvilie. ' Mrs.
Buell leaves four children. Her death was
sudden, having been announced by telegram
to her mother, who had had no previous
knowledge of her illness.
Disc__,rgred Frank Ben lis.
Frank Bemis, arrested on a charge of
swindling John Sandell, the Seventh street
tailor, out of a suit of clothes, or rather the
price of them, was discharged in the police
court yesterday. Sandell informed the court
that he was convinced that Bemis did not in
tend to defraud him, but after giving the
orders on the railroad company drank a quan
tity of liquor and then drew his money.
Bemis was discharged, and Mr. Sandell, after
the case was over, said he had been paid the
$28 due him on the clothes.

Second day of the great sale of
accumulated in the past seven
months by one of the foremost
makers in the world. We bought
the entire lot at a discount of
40 per cent.
It is only because the maker is
the most critical in the world
that these linens are called im
perfect. Many makers would
call them perfect goods. There's
only an occasional dropped
thread in the weaving, a poor
selvedge, or a spot from the ma
chinery. Nine times out of ten
a buyer would not notice the
slight defects.
But then they will notice, we
are sei I ing them about ONE
THIRD off from regular
prices. It's better than any
fire sale or wet goods sale. It
comes right in the nick of time
for those who are preparing for
G. A. R. visitors. New lots on
