adopted, do not come as the action of the
Commercial Travelers' association, but were
adopted and signed by the full membership
of the meeting:
Whereas, It has been reported in free,
silver newspapers that the commercial trav
elers are in favor of the free coinage of
silver, and.
Whereas, It is deemed advisable to cor
rect any erroneous impressions that may
have gone abroad rayiraing the positior of
tlie commercial travelers upon this question;
it Is hereby
Resolved, by the commercial travelers of
St. Paul, That we are unalterably opposed
to the financial plank embodied in :.he plat
form of the Democratic party, adopted at
Chicago, and we confidently believe that the
free coinage of silver, as adDnte.d on that
platform, would result in enormous disaster
to all classes of American citizens, except
the owners of silver bullion, and that the
honor and integrity of the United States
government in its financial dealings must
at all times be steadfastly maintained.

Get Into :i Row mill Talk Glibly of
Pasqual Liberti, an Italian laborer,
was arrested late Saturday night by
Patrolman Markie on a charge of
drunk and disorderly. Liberti had
within a nickel of $62 in his pocket,
and wanted to be released on bail.
It is the usual practice in cases of
this kind to allow prisoners to go on
bail as soon as they sober, up. Lib
erti, however, had "no bail" marked
opposite his name, and the result was
that he spent the Sabbath in a cell
at tho central station. Rodino Lom
bardo explained to Capt. Rouleau that
Liberti had threatened to kill him,
and he was fearful that if Liberti was
released he might put his threat into
execution. His statement was '*vcked
up by that of his wife, who told the
police that Liberti had informed her
that she would soon be dressed in
mourning: for her husband. It was
owing to these statements that Lib
erti was kept locked up yesterday.
Liberti is single, thirty-seven years
nld. and for the past four months has
been employed as a laborer on the
Great Northern road in Montana. He
returned to St. Paul last Friday, and
has been drinking heavily. Lombardo
lives with his wfe and family at
Eagle and Franklin streets, and Lib
prti boards in the same locality.

than is allowed. A prison stamp v.'ill also be
demanded to designate shoes made in prison.

Jacob C. Schorr, nineteen years old,
residing with his widowed mother at
385 Jenks street, was fatally injured
last evening by being run over by a
Northern Pacific engine near York and
Mississippi streets. Schorr rode on the
enginerfrom the union depot, intending
to jump off the locomotive at York and
Mississippi streets, the nearest point to
his home. He did jump off, but as he
left the engine his foot slipped, and he
was thrown under the wheels and
shockingly mangled. He was picked
up and taken to the city hospital, and
although aliv-e when he reached the in
stitution the physicians say there is no
chance for his recovery. His left foot
was almost completely severed from
! the leg just above the ankle and his
j left hand hung by a shred to the arm.
i He sustained a fracture of the skull on
i the right side and there were gaping
' wounds on the top of his head, while
I large pieces of flesh had been torn from
j his arm and right side. Restoratives
and opiates were given him, and if he
can survive the shock to his system,
which is hardly possible, the injuries
to his head will be sufficient to cause
his death.
Schorr has been employed in the
Northern Pacific shops as a helper in
the blacksmith shop, but lately has
been employed at the Home & Danz
works on the West side. His mother,
who was notified' of the accident, was
completely prostrated by the shock.
People's C-hnrt-h Anticipate* the
Prison Sunday Services.
Prison Sunday services were held at
the People's church last evening. The
observance was in the nature of a
platform meeting-, which was addressed
by Rev. W. R. Lord and Warden
Wolfer, of the state penitentiary.
Mr. Lord spoke upon the subject
"The Incipient Criminal," and asserted
in his opening remarks that the only
manner in which this class could be
reached was by sympathy. This could
be effectively done by the realization on
the part of more fortunately situated
individuals that they were of the same
class to which the speaker referred.only
they were differently environed. Under
the same conditions those who were not
criminals might become so as readily
as those who were; and on the other
hand those who who fell, if surrounded
by the favorable conditions of their
neighbors, might never begin the down
ward career which ended only behind
prison walls.
There were two classes of Incipient
criminals, the speaker said, the first
of which was composed of those reared
in homes where crime and vice was not
only countenanced, but was taught to
the children by the every-day lives of
the parents. The wonder to those who
had labored in the cause of humanity
in large cities was not that there
were so many criminals, but that there
were so few. In this connection the
speaker referred to a recent incident
in the local police court, where the par
ents had been arrested for the theft of
a number of doors of railroad cars for
fuel, and asked how it could be expect
ed that the children of these parents
could be expected when they grew up
to have respect for the rights of proper
ty. The law was indentical in all cases
where any phase of crime was instill
ed into the mind of the child. The time
was coming, however, when there
would be no need of prison reform as
sociations, for the people were begin
ning to take hold upon a condition of
affairs to be righted with a zeal which
attested that the importance of fhe re
form movement was at last realized.
The second division of incipient
crime existed among those who had
proper training, but who had fallen un
der temptation. The components of
this class never intended to become
criminals and were not in reality such,
even after the commission of an unlaw
ful act. It was not consistent with re
form to put such persons in confine
ment with hardened criminals, as such
a course entirely circumvented any ef
fort at reformation by lowering the un
fcrtunate and causing to attach to him
a stigma which could never be remov
ed. Massachusetts had adopted a pro
bationary system of dealing with in
cipient criminals which the speaker in
dorsed and recommended to the state
of Minnesota. It provided for the ap
pointment by the different courts of
probationary officials whose duty it
was when a man was arraigned for the
committing of a crime to inquire into
his former life, ascertain his habits,
also whether he had been previously
guilty of any crime, and make a report
to the judges. Power was given the
courts to put a criminal on probation,
and if he was found to have been sim
ply one who had fallen for the first
time he was allowed his liberty, in
stead of -being sent to prison. The pro
bationary officials, however, still look
ed after the convicted person, even to
visiting his home, and made frequent
reports to the proper authorities. By
the application of this system Mr. Lord
stated that 60 per cent of the criminals
j of Massachusetts who had been sub
|Je.pted to it had been reclaimed. He
, concluded his address with an appeal
that the meeting should not end in
sentiment, but that actual and mate
rial assistance should be given the '
Ramsey County Prison association in
maintaining the one official whom it
had recently appointed to look to the
reformation of those in the early stages
j of criminality in St. Paul.
Warden Wolfer read an interesting
i paper upon "The Reformed Criminal."
: Once a thief was not always a thief,
j he said, and by the employment of
j proper methods many who had been
{ stamped as criminals could be re-
I claimed as useful and honorable mcm
i bers of society. All who committed
crimes were not naturally criminals.
Criminality could only be analyzed in
so far as the character of the criminal
I could be read, but It was beyond ques
! tion that many who committed crimes
were not at heart bad. but were the
victims of irresistible temptation.
"When a man entered prison, to begin
j the reformation hoped to be accom-
I plished it was necessary to know sorae
i thing of his former life. Kis habits
I were studied and his intellectual abil
j ity observed in order that the most
S effective method might be employed in
j an -effort to prepare him to resume
| his place in society at the expiration
lof his sentence. The convicted man.
• as a rule, was wholly out of gear with
i society. He thought Ir all wrong be
cause he had fallen under the law,
and unon entering prison was a sub
ject difficult to handle. Ordinarily,
froxvevor. the corvJct vas quick .to take
ftdvantap* of" any system prevailing in
tfce prison which would accrue to hfs
j -bt*e«fit and in this way sobn became
ii«** ar>b.lect of self- discipline, an impor
!•«**« factor (a his reformation. 1*
(strengthen the character of the man
was the only hope of reform. Under
ordinary conditions it was possible to
reform about 60 per oent of convicted
criminals. But society must do lta
part, and when the released prisoner
has established that he \m on the way
to a reformed life, he must be given a
helpicg hand. Simple tolerance was
not sufficient. He must be assisted to
employment, and his rights must be
protected Just as though he had never
been behind prison bars. The position
of the parent to the erring child was
the position which society should as
sume towerd the reformed criminal,
and this way his reformation could be
made complete and enduring.

Topic or Rev. J. F. Stoat» Sermon
Hosea's picture of the Valley of
Achor was chosen for a topic by Rev.
J. F. Stout, pastor of the First M. B.
church, last night. He said in part:
When Israel, escaping from bond
age, came a second time to the gates
ot the land of promise, this camping
ground was to them the door of the
land which had been already given
them by God — an opportunity full of
hope. Indeed they found tnat God's
gift was opportunity. A door of hope
is a universal need. Israel was In a
desperate strait; idolatry and moral
corruption were everywhere prevalent.
The old and time-honored worship of
; Jehovah had become debased by the
I intrusion of the habits and spirit of
j the surrounding peoples. Social evils
' were eating into the very heart of the
. state; the people groaned under bur-
I dens that made their condition little
better than slavery; drunkenness and
licentiousness were the order among
' priests and people; Israel had for
j years been shutting all doors of hope
and opening avenues for despair.
These times in Israel represent the uni
versal condition of peoples without
God. God's doors of hope are all con
ditioned. There are two schools of
religious thought, having a wide dif
ference in their method of looking
at truth. Both teach with the Word
of God, that eternal life is a gift of
God, but one affirms that it is a gift
outright, and that the receiver has
j nothing to do with it. By this method
] the land of promise should have been
delivered to Israel already c nquered
and cleansed, and the salvation of
Jesus given to the individual heart,
unconditioned by faith or courage on
the part of him who receives it.
The other school recognizes the condi
tional element in all God's dealings.
He gives the promised land to Israel
by developing in them the spirit of
conquest, and the power of accom
j plishing results through faith in him.
The gospel promises to form a door
of hope, through which any soul may
enter and find for himself all that is
promised, and yet he must fail if he
does not enter and possess that which
is designed for him. Difficulties there
are indeed; to Israel the walled cities
and the giants, the hosts of trained
enemies, to us the forces that con
front a soul on the march away from
sin to the city of God, but these dif
ficulties are only after all the meas
ure of the divine estimate of the man
who enters these doors of precious op
portunity. Surely God has made Hla
largest compliment to the race In the
fact that He sets it a task under His
direction that he must become in some
sense divine to accomplish it, must be
come a partaker of the divine nature.
Attended the Opening of the Poullst
Fathers' Mission.
The Paulist Fathers, of New York,
iraugurated a two weeks' mission in
this city at the cathedral yesterday.
The first sermon was preach «i at high
mass by Rev. Father Elias Younon,
who, in a general discussion, set forth
the objects of the mission. A second
mass and instruction was held at 8
o'clock. Father Younon also officiated
at the evening services, when he de
livered an eloquent sermon on the im
portance of salvation. The first week
of the mission the services are exclu
sively for women, over 3,000 of whom
crowded the cathedral last evening.
Father Younon is considered one of
the foremost speakers of the order
which he represents, and during his
missionary work in the United States
for the past few years he has been
greeted with crowds wherever the
Paulist missions have been instituted.
He was born in Calcutta, India, where
he labored as a missionary for some
j ears, when he was transferred to Lon
dcn. England. His labors in the city
of London cover a period of nearly twen
ty-five years. Recently he came to the
United States, where his work has been
for the most part confined to the state
of New York.
Churchmen Complain to Police
About "Old Kentucky* Band.
Charles E. D. Olmsted, who is one
of the deacons of the House of Hope
church, walked rapidly into the cen
tra! police station yesterday noon. He
was quite indignant, and as soon as he
could calm himself sufficiently to talk,
informed the officer behind the desk
that the present administration was
worse than Bob Smith's, and he failed
to see where the promised reform came
in. "Why, do you know?" said Mr.
Olmsted, warming up again as he pro
ceeded, "that there is a negro band
parading the streets right in front of
the House of Hope just while the ser
vices are being dismissed." At this
juncture Mr. Olmsted was hustled into
the private office of Chief Goss and
just what other talk he made regard
ing the policy of the reform adminis
tration which would allow such a state
of affairs was lost to the public. Mr.
Olmsted had a short talk with Chief
Goss and that official evidently knew
just how to handle him and his com
plaint, for ten minutes later he emerg
ed from the private office, smiled and
bowed pleasantly to the group of police
men and detectives and hurried out of
the door in a much more pleasant frame"
of mind than when he stalked in. "And
the band played on."
Will Be Brought Back From Cht-
cago This Week.
Dr. A. B. Ancker, city physician, left
last evening- for Chicago. He was call
ed there by a letter received yesterday
from Dr. A. Lugorio, who has charge
of the Pasteur institute at 65 Randolph
street, that city. The letter stated
that Jennie Shafer, the little girl who
was taken to the Institute two weeks
ago, was doing splendidly and had
shown no sign of rabies; the course
of treatment to which she had been
subjected would come to an end yester
day morning and that she would be
ready to go home any time thereafter.
Dr. Ancker will return to St. Paul with
the little girl Tuesday morning. The
expense of the child's treatment at the
irstitute will be paid for by the board
of control, although it has not been de
cided as yet just how the claim can be
worked through so as to prevent the
city comptroller from holding it up.

But Is Still in»a Grave Condition at
His Monte on Sherburne
Paul E. Benz, who was assaulted in
Waldron & Grady's saloon Saturday
evening, was reported as out of danger
last evening. The young man's condi
tion was said to be very serious Satur
day night, and the physicians In at
tendance feared that the blow which
he received had caused a fracture of
the skull. It was a report to this effect
that caused the arrest of Robert N.
Grady, one of the proprietors of the
saloon, on a charge of assault with a
dangerous weapon, as stated in the
Uo b c yesterday. Interest in the case
was increased yesterday by the arrest
of William J. Waldron, the other mem
ber of the firm in whose saloon the as
sault took place. He was locked up at
the central station on a charge similar
to that preferred against Grady.
Waldron came to the station yester
day at noon, accompanied by Anthony
J. Kampmann, local agent for the
Schlltz Brewing company, to have a
talk with Grady. He was somewhat
surprised to learn that he was wanted
on the same charge as his business
partner. Instead of making a visit of
condolence and expressing sympathy
at the position in which Grady found
himself, Waldron spent the balance of
the day as a prisoner, and together the
two partners discussed the situation
Previous to the arrest of Waldron a
member of the- Benz family called at
the central station, accompanied by
William Post and A. Barfuss, two of
the persons who were with Paul Benz
at the time the assault was committed.
The companions of young Benz stated
to the police that a mistake had been
made, in that it was Waldron who
struck Paul Be*z with a billy instead
of Grady. Post and Barfuss had a talk
with Lieut. Boerne-f and afterwards
with Chief Goss. Following this the
order was issued for Waldron's arrest
and a couple of detectives were sent out
for him. It was while the detectives
were out looking for Waldron that he
called to see ©rady, and was placed
under arrest.
At 3 o'clock a telephone message was
received at the central station to the
effect that the physicians were of the
opinion that Paul Benz was out of im
mediate danger, although he was in a
very serious condition. A number of
Grady's friends had been endeavoring
to make arrangements for his release
on bail, and it was announced that
Judge Twohy had promised to call at
the central station at 10 o'clock to ar
range for Grady's release on bonds.
Up to noon Judge Twohy had not put
in an appearance, and as Waldron was
locked up at 1 o'clock, the nrogramme
to secure Grady's release was not car
ried out. During the afternoon Will
iam Johnson, president of the Retail
Liquor Dealers' association, and John
F. Smith, vice president of the same
organization, called at the station and
had an interview with both Grady and
Waldron. Grady holds the position of
secretary of the association, of which
Johnson and Smith are officers, and at
5 o'clock it was agreed that the best
thing to be done was to secure attor
neys for the prisoners and endeavor to
secure their release on bonds. P. J.
Bowlin, who also visited the prisoners,
stated that he was willing to give
bonds in any amount for their appear
ance in court today, but up to 9 o'clock
last evening the prisoners were both
at the station.
Waldron and^Gxady did. not care to
talk about the cause yesterday when seen
by a Globe reporter, but Grady said
that as he understood the charge, those
interested had .., decided that it was
Waldron and not he that had struck
Benz with a hilly. ( If this was the
case and Benz ,tvaa, according- to the
physicians, not seriously hurt, he saw
no reason why ,, he ; should be held at
the station a prisoner. Waldron said
a couple of the. raep, who claimed to
have been with. Benz when the alleged
assault occurred, were at the saloon
Saturday night, before the arrest of
Grady and had Informed the officer who
accompanied them, that he, Waldron,
was not the one* who struck Benz.
From a friend of the prisoners it was
learned that neither of the men struck
Benz with a billy, and if any blows
were struck at all it was with nothing
more than the fists. According to the
statement of this man, who claims to
have been an eye vr'tness to the affair,
the six men, including Benz.came in the
saloon by the side door, and stepping to
the bar, called for six beers. There
were quite a number of persons In the
place at the time and as young Benz
left the bar and went to the lunch
counter, Grady stepped from behind, the
bar _and taking hold of Benz's coat,
asked who was to pay for the beer. At
this one of the men with Benz grabbed
Grady by the arm and said something
about the pay for the beer being all
right. Grady, according to this wit
ness, shook himself loose and made a
pass at the man who had grabbed his
arm. Just then some one, the witness
did not or could not say who, struck
Benz, knocking him down. He was as
sisted to his feet by his friends, and
after paying for the drinks, left the
Both Grady and Waldron deny that
Benz was struck by a weapon or billy
and neither of them had any acquaint
ance with Benz or any of the men who
were with them. It is claimed that a
number of young fellows have been in
the habit of visiting the saloon, order
ing drinks and^, after drinking them
sauntering to the lunch counter and
then out of the side.dfl:>r without making >
any settlement., Whether the trouble!
grew out of the fnisapprenension on the
part of the satoonnaen that this was
the game to be^ worked by Benz and
his party is not KnoWn, as the prisoners
are not inclined Ito tlijk about the case.
It is possible, hojwevjer, that this is the
true solution oil tb# : affair, although
those acquainted with young Benz -say
such an idea nßver*. entered his head,
and if Grady or Wdldron had this in
mind they were^greatty mistaken.
Dr. Brlmhall, who was sent.to ascer- I
tain {he extent.. of Benz's injuries by ■
the police Saturday rffght, reported that
the patient hadi evidently been struck
on the right side of the head, just back
of the temple, by some instrument.
He was of the opinion that the blow
was caused by som« other instrument
than man's fist. Seen last evening, Dr. I
Brimhall stated that the young man, !
whom he last saw f^sterday morning, j
was much better am seemingly out of
danger. * " -

present were C. D, B and H, of St. Paul,
and A, B, F and I, of Minneapolis. Col.
C. McC. Reeve, with the field and staff
officers of the regiment, was also in
attendance. In addition to the militia
men, who filled almost every available
space in the church, a large number of
civilians crowded the aisles and door
ways of the edifice in an effort to hear
the sermon of Dr. Rhodes.
Previous to marching to the church
the rendezvous of the regiment was at
the armory, on Sixth street, where the
St. Paul companies formed, in waiting
for those from Minneapolis, which came
over on chartered interurban cars, at
3 o'clock. Watson's First Regiment
band accompanied this division, which
marched from Seventh and Wabasha
streets to the armory, where it. was
joined by the St. Paul companies, the
regiment then marching to the church,
Portland avenue and Kent street. Only
one section of the edifice had been al
lotted to the public at large, and this
was crowded long before the arrival
of the regiment, while those seeking to
gain admission after the militiamen
had been accommodated filled the lawn
and sidewalk. Forming in a column,
two abreast, the members of the regi
ment filed slowly into the church, while
the band, which had entered first, ren
dered Beethoven's "Hope Celestial."
When the members of the regiment had
been seated the combined choirs of St.
John the Evangelist and St. Luke's
churches entered, singing with splendid
effect the processional hymn, "Stand
Up for Jesus." At the conclusion of the
scriptural reading by Rev. Dr. Chitten
den, formerly of St. Paul's church, Wi
nona, who assisted in the services, the
congregation, led by the choir, sang the
national anthem, "America." It was
a grand chorus of male voices, whose>
power and spirit was an inspiration in
keeping with the occasion, and seldom
in times of peace is a more feeling
tribute paid to patriotism than was
evidenced by the sincerity of the citizen
soldiers as they sang their country's
national hymn.
Dr. Rhodes announced as hiß text
the words of Paul to Timothy, "Endure
hardness as good soldiers of Jesus
Christ." He said in part: "It might
be thought unusual and to be one of the
contradictions of life to see a body of
men drawn together by the spirit of
war assemble in a Christian church,
whose mission it is to destroy war as a
factor in civilization, yet nothing has
done more to bring about universal
peace than those enrolled in the armies
of the world. But it is not by arms
that the peace of Christ has been im
posed upon the hearts and intellects
of men, but through His boundless love.
God does not send His peace through
the agencies of war. The sacrifices of
the soldier on the field of battle are
free will offerings to the cause he holds
dearest, while the peace of God is es
tablished by the acceptance of the
means which He offers, yet the duties
of a soldier of Christ and a soldier of
his country constitute a striking par
"It Is interesting to note what makes
a Christian soldier and what makes a
soldier of his country. The first attri
bute of a soldier is obedience. Obedi
ence is likewise the foundation upon
which the Christian life is built. Dis
obedience on the part of a soldier in
times of war means death. The sol
dier has but to do and die and not to
ask the reason why. When one looks
at a regiment on the field of battle
moving with precision, like a mighty
machine at the breath of the command
ing officer, it is then that the secret of
the Christian life is revealed. The or
ders of the Great Captain are to be
seen every day. They issue from the
sky, the stars, the moon and all phases
of nature. They are the reveille of
the morning, the curfew of the night
The fool may read the orders of God,
yet the duty of the soldier is the in
stinct of the soldiers of Jesus Christ.
"Next to obedience, the essential
quality of an efficient soldier is dis
cipline, which means the sinking of
self in the great mass, so that when
the order comes the whole line is
driven as one mass even as are the
ingots of the iron in the furnace. The
great secret of Napoleon's success as
a general was the discipline of his
soldiers individually. No man can be
a g-ood soldier who is thinking of
self. The soldier must think of his
comrades, endure hardship, anguish
disease and death. Only by being will
ing to give up the luxuries of life
and depart to the seclusion of the tent
can a man become a good soldier. All
of this comes as the result of discip
line. Brave men tremble in the field
when receiving their first baptism of
fire and bullets, but discipline changes
their natural fear to courage and brav
ery. Discipline accomplishes the same
end in the Christian's life. The Chris
tian must be willing to be sunk in the
great mass of humanity. He must
give himself to others. Let him put
his feet on luxury, sin and vice, and
by these stones rise to higher things.
This is a Christian's discipline.
"What shall be said of courage a«
in the Christian's life? In the soldier
there may be physical disabilities, but
the soldier who has not courage is
never great. When you read of the
great men infusing courage into troops
which are wavering. It may be said
that brute courage has made it pos
sible for their names to be written
among the stars, but in the Christian
life this is not so. Christian courage
is not like that to which I have al
luded. The courage of the Christian
is harder to attain than that which
enables men to face thundering guns
and storms of lead. It is the power to
say no and yes in the strength of con
viction ; it is the power to say one's
prayers when there are those about
age. The leadership which is coura
geous is that which manifests Itself
where there are none to befriend or
to follow.
"Faith, too. Is an element In the life
of a soldier as well as In, the life of a
Christian. How is it that armies will j
follow one man rather than another? I
It is faith which enables them to do j
so. They know in whom they believe.
The men In the field have the same
faith as he who stands upon the em
inence, and they trnst him. I n«ed
not tell you of the faith that a Chris
tian must have In the invisible. Com

think of the fleeting 1 nature of this
life, and remember that we are all
possessed of immortal souls, which, by
the power of God, shall live on through
all eternity; and, soldiers of Minnesota,
I call upon you by your allegiance to

Jesus Christ. The time will come wh-en

At the conclusion of the services the
regiment formed outside the church
and marched down Summit avenue to
the armory, where it was disbanded.
